"Healthy state. So you return to your families your jobs and live your life. That's the reason we do what we do. I think I speak for a lot of people. When I say we are thankful for you, and we're thankful for countless people who are working in those ers and hospitals all across this great nation. Obviously, it is a troubling time for for us. There's a lot going on. But I want to thank you for your for your service, sir. And We've gotta all band together and get this done. Mark Morocco Physician in L. A professor of emergency medicine over U C l A Doctor. Thank you so much. Thanks, Steve to privilege. We appreciate the time. Happy Thanksgiving to you and to you. Well, you heard the good doctors say what His plans are for Thanksgiving, and he's gonna be working in the ER. What about you? Are you working? Or maybe you're thinking about gathering with other people in a very different year. We asked, And we got a lot of responses. And I'm joined now by our managing producer, Christian board all Hey, Christian. Hey, that Steve and you followed up with a few of the folks who did respond to us about what VOCs are doing for Thanksgiving. I did, and I have to say I feel so thankful. I ended up having these great conversations with three really Interesting women living in different parts of L. A. Taliban. Ah, Zhu is a chef. She's a single mom with a 10 year old boy. She's originally from Amarillo, Texas. She has three sisters all living in L. A so everyone could normally get together on Thanksgiving at one of the sisters houses, But not this year. Like every single holiday this year birthdays. And in all the major holidays and stuff, we just basically do zoom dinner parties. So for Thanksgiving, what we're doing is we're just like Each of us are making like our family recipes, but in everybody, and they kind of doing like a door drop to trade him off. Yes. Oh, she's a chef. So I asked her what she's making. I can get a menu. Uh, well, I'm making for everybody isn't doing lobster disc and believe me baked brie side of range turkey mashed potatoes with whiskey, Jim, what gravy and then something special cream puffs. Oh, man, I want to go to her place for Thanksgiving, Right? Yes, Me, too. And then the sisters are doing like the likely with cheesy rice casserole that our mom used to make us and we were all kind of crazy like dark. Comfort childhood dishes, So they're all making goes and our mom's been getting very pissed. Getting emails everybody asking for those recipes because she's mad that we're not coming to see them. But, yeah, They were considering going to Amarillo to spend Thanksgiving with their parents. But my hometown is definitely a Hossam. Like what? They were in the news that Friend of ours is going up. Children are getting sick and had a kindergartner diet couple weeks ago, so it's like sorry we thought about it. We can't Yeah, she says. There's a pretty different attitude to the pandemic in Amarillo. So it's going to be her and her son for Thanksgiving and the rest of the holidays, But she's doing her best to plan some nice stuff for them. Yeah, find a way to make the best of it, regardless of what's going on, Obviously, some bad things going on. Yeah, that's that's kind of the theme going on here. Pan. Luis Nunez lives in Torrance with her husband. She's a therapist. She monitors people's mental health and substance abuse treatment for an insurance company. And this year she and her husband having a very different Thanksgiving than they usually do. I love Thanksgiving. It's actually one of my favorite holidays. And I mean for me, it really means getting together with family and having fun. Um, and my husband's really big Argentinean family. They're just very loud and fun and happy, and we have a really super fun time. So it's on the one hand disappointing, But on the other hand, I think We're creating something different and special and so for me, I just feel like what's a few more months of staying home and being careful. I think it's just worth it. But unlike Hannah, the chef we just heard from Pam and husband won't be doing much cooking. We actually ordered food because we've never had to make Thanksgiving before, so we ordered it. And, yeah, we started looking it up and we were like we're completely not equipped to make dinner, so we ordered it. Which I'm sure a lot of people do is well, Christian. I mean, you mentioned that she's a therapist. I bet the pandemic has been keeping her really busy, right? It really has. My work has increased significantly. There are astronomical rates of people seeking substance abuse, treatment and mental health treatment. Previously, I would probably talk to somebody who was feeling suicidal. And honestly, not very often, maybe once a month, and now it's happening several times per week. I'm having to call 911 frequently and that, as you might imagine, Starts taking its toll. It's been very stressful, but I just have to really practice more self care. And we had decided early a couple months ago to adopt two dogs that keep me company and at home, and I take breaks and take them for a little walks. And so I've just had to really practice the coping skills that I know is a therapist. That helped me stay sane Right now. I love that She's adopted a couple of dogs and that they're keeping her company and helping her. You know, deal with the stress and deal with the I mean just how bad it is and and enjoy the holidays at some level. Yeah, absolutely. And, coincidentally, she's not the only person dealing with a covert stressful job. Michelle someone who prefers to use just a first name because she's a social worker who sometimes works in jails and an emergency room in the hospital. She's married with kids. She lives in the San Gabriel Valley. And normally, she says, they would be seeing her and her husband's families for Thanksgiving. There will normally be a very large event with my husband's family and a smaller event, but still in the bed with multiple individuals up at my parents home, which is about an hour away, eh? So we try to do both. Um, and for the time being, it does seem like both events are kind of Going on as normal going on his normal, which I'm sure a lot of folks are trying to do so. So both her family and her in laws will beginning together as usual for Big Thanksgiving celebrations. Right, And she's not comfortable with that. But she has found a creative way to get out of joining them without offending anyone..

"With family and friends. If you're that person, but you may not be. You may be creeping back toward that semblance of normalcy despite the pandemic. Doing riskier things because maybe you think your immune or you couldn't possibly get this. Maybe you think it's just like the flu. The people in hospitals and ers, whose job it is to save your life in any circumstance have a different kind of fatigue. And one doctor here in Los Angeles, penned an op ed in the L A times titled On the covert front lines were tired of hearing lame excuses for risky behavior. Some powerful words from someone who's seen all too much of how this virus is upending lives. Mark Morocco is a physician in L. A and professor of emergency medicine over U. C. L. A. Doctor. Morocco is here with us right now. Hey there. Welcome to you. Thanks, Steve. It's great to be here and it's great to be on kcrw. You you wrote quote. Stop being cry babies about a little inconvenience. We already have more than 250,000 reasons to weep and to be thankful that we are alive and can still do something about it. Your your op ed is filled with some pretty harsh language. That's obviously intentional, right? Well, I think a lot of people forget that doctors, nurses, respiratory therapist, healthcare workers, people who take care of you in the ER and in the hospitals, especially under this kind of pressure. We're human beings, too, you know, And although we're covered by various professional oaths, and we try our best to be the best kind of people we can be, You know, we are literally fatigued to the point of breaking Trying to get ahead of this code experience and defined that some of our patients and we love our patients. We love all of our patients other we wouldn't be doing this are so complicated and so contrary that they are doing things that are Hard for us to put our heads around. And so we get frustrated with a little angry. Some people asked me in private, You know, how do you feel about what you see going on? And I say, I feel sort of sad, but I'm also hopeful and that's really the reason behind the op. Ed. You know, we are not done with this. This is the third inning of the ball game. This is a novel disease. We're learning about it as we go along. Assed. Physicians and scientists were getting better treatment. But all the stuff that we are learning it generates frustration because we as a society, I think, are used to having lots of lots of tools that are sort of magic bullets to use that similarly on biotics easy, easy fixes, you know you get a liver transplant. It's a miracle, and much of that is true, but Cove it's not ready for miracles, yet what we need is some basic Unity amongst our our our country and our world. You know this is the world is under attack. But it's not by aliens. It's by a virus and we have the ability in our hands to do simple things to have it be better, and that's where the frustration comes from. We need to be better and we think that we can be better. What do you What do you say to people, though? Who tell you Hey, look, it's Thanksgiving. I want to see my family. My mom is elderly. I want to see her. I may not get another Thanksgiving with her. You know, I think the best physicians caregivers are folks who can really empathize, put themselves in the bed with the patient and understand what the experience is like, and for doctors Now I think it's even more compelling to us because we are in the same situation. We all have the same. Fatigue and anxiety. My parents are in their in their mid eighties, They lived back in Pittsburgh. There is nothing. I would like to do more than get on a plane, you know and see them because, you know Time is fleeting. And you know, my dad had of health complication a few months ago during covert, you know, when you realize that, Yeah, You're right. You just could be the last Thanksgiving, but you have to reflect forward and think. What if I am the vector that gives them that disease and that they may or may not survive in this war. There are places where battles are fought, and we are at one of them right now. So the holiday period the winter period before we get enough of the vaccine to begin to have some effect on the whole herd Immunity issue. This is gonna be a pivot point. And that's one of the reasons that I wanted to write the op ed. And when you come to us, you're a patient, your friend, your neighbor. We want to take care of you. And it doesn't matter to us What your political stripe is or whether you thought the virus was a hoax or whether you just happened to forget to wear your mask is that will only be a few minutes. I'm gonna run in and get something to run back out and get it. We don't really care of that point, But you understand that there is a dividing line like if you wear a mask, your Succumbing to this. Some people call it a hoax. They think it it doesn't exist. They think that it was manufactured and sent to America. I mean, there are many conspiracy theories about covert 19. And so it is political wearing a mask is political or can be political. Well, it's never political in a clinical interaction. That's the first thing I would tell you, but I've been called a sheep all on so and that's okay. But it reflects sort of two failures in the communications world that is so important in medicine. Ah, failure for a unified leader like in war. Time to say, Look, This is an important thing we're doing. Everybody must make a sacrifice. And here's how you do it, And we're not asking people to make a very difficult sacrifice. These they're not dangerous drugs were asked me to take. We're not asking you to spend a lot of money. We're not asking you to go and take a personal day. In a battle right? We're asking you to do some simple things. And the other side of that coin is we scientists and doctors have some culpability to. We have to be more careful to make people understand that as we learn things, it's going to change and we're gonna let them know what the changes are. So now you know, you see, sometimes people do a study and then before it even go through peer review it's released. You know, we're doing science by press release. We've never done that before. And with a more unified message. We could have saved a lot of I've saved a lot of money, and we probably wouldn't be looking at the shutdowns we're looking at now. The next six weeks can tell us whether or not it's going to be a terrible winter or just an inconvenient one. What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Are you working or You're gonna be with family or you know, I have traditionally at you silly work Thanksgiving holiday. So I will be working Thanksgiving Day tomorrow and Friday and Saturday and so that people can have a nice weekend off. We will not have a tradition that ers across the country and in the hospital ICUs always do and one of the greatest meals you'll ever have. Steve, if you ever have a chance to have a Potluck and er in a big hospital like U. C l A. You have the best meal you've ever had. Because everybody brings their family's best dish from across the wide diversity. You can imagine how many different cultures are reflected in our staff. I mean, a reflection of the diversity of Los Angeles. The food is it'll make your just your head explode. You want to go and collapse on the couch, But you can't because your work is the best meal you ever have. So after Cove, it is over and our hospitals are back open. Maybe next year, we'll invite you to the potluck and weaken both overindulge. We will miss that. But we'll be there for you. If there's any any reason you to come to the hospital, That's what we do across the country. There's other things other than covert out there and we stand ready Tow. Take care of our friends, our neighbors, our countrymen. On day hopefully get you back to the 100%.

"About 30,000 at that's of concern. We had a downtick in personal income. On Wall Street. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones industrial average closed down 173 points today. The NASDAQ closed up 57 points. You're listening to NPR news. But it's 604. This is KCRW news. I'm Matt Gillam. As many California cities and counties tighten their pandemic shutdowns with closures and curfews, elected officials confront the charged issue of how to balance public health and the needs of the economy. You saw that play out in Los Angeles this week when a divided board of supervisors voted to go ahead with a temporary ban on on site dining. One elected official who says he will always air on the side of public health is Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia. These closures are so hard. They're hard workers. They're hard on the restaurant owners and you have you have you feel awful about them? But at the end of the day, we have to continue. Reporting the doctors and the medical officials that are actually making these decisions. Long Beach has its own health department, and it could have ignored the county's order to hold outdoor dining, R and indoor dining as well. Pasadena has done that. But Garcia says that public health has to be the top priority. I need to make sure that there are enough hospital beds available. So that if a family member or anyone that we know in our community is needs a bed that they have a bad sort of the conceive your life. CIA knows firsthand the devastation wrought by covert 19. Both his mother and stepfather died of the illness. Like a lot of us. You probably do have covert fatigue fed up with having to stay inside, trying to do the right thing and perhaps even giving up your holidays with family and friends, But people in hospitals and ers are pleading with people to keep it up. Dr Mark Morocco is a position in L. A and professor of emergency medicine.

"2500 people now with the pandemic. Obviously, we cannot have an event of that size. This year. Those who stop by the mission and Skid Row on Thanksgiving will get a traditional turkey day meal, but in a to go back, they must take off site. Some volunteers are still finding ways to help from a distance. Culver City residents Susie Seaver, It's usually lends a hand at the midnight mission from 7 A.m. to 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving, spreading decorative tablecloths out on too long tables and piling up plates of food. This year, she's focused on one much smaller task she hopes will bring joy to those picking up a to go meal. We have our silver world wrapped. We wrap it like we'll put the knife and the fork in the spoon on a on a flat napkin, and then we'll fold a napkin up and then use ribbon. You know that ribbon that you normally used to curl different color ribbons. You're gonna make it festive, So that's what I'll be doing a share from home. And in Santa Barbara trade, Pippen and his Boy Scout troop will be making and dropping off more than a dozen pumpkin pies. And some homeless organizations are taking volunteers this year like Union Station homeless services in Pasadena CEO and Miss Qi says it's been hard finding people willing to lend a hand because most are nervous to come out. She says her team desperately needs help handing out to go meals. Yes, absolutely. And we again we're incredibly safe. We should think very carefully. Everything is outside. Everything is distance and we provide full PPE for people. Masks, advisors and everything so there are still plenty of ways to help both in person and from afar. Obviously, homeless organizations are always looking for cash donations. Or you could do a food drive or create to go meals or hold a virtual event to raise money or rap, decorative silverware sets. And if you missed your chance to help out this Thanksgiving, remember feeding people and showing you care doesn't stop after the holidays. KCRW. I'm Catherine Barnes. Thistles. Greater L A on KCRW and Steve should take us. I have a confession to make. I am really tired of talking about covert 19.

"KSFO as long as we go down there from by the way good morning we've been talking about this indoctrination process this take place our schools we've heard from of teachers this morning we've been hearing from teachers both via email as well as callers have this liberal indoctrinate indoctrination is over the top especially here in California where it's beyond indoctrination it's activism it's getting these people stirred up and riled up and ready and I don't blame any of the students tonight we allow the parents you're you're working day people you don't know what's going on behind the scenes you think all is well but man alive depending on the school district all is not well but this is an interesting segue I have a friend he's been on the program many times you probably he may have heard of them before his name is mark marrano and mark is he if there's any one person on the planet that is most hated by environmental activists it's mark Morocco mark is a website called climate depot and he has scores of contributors and these contributors are you not not just slackers with the into a keyboard and a computer these are contributors who are PH dis these are you know college professors these are people in the industry who writes all of these fascinating articles that blow away all of al gore's theories just blow away and so they hate mark marrano for re posting all of this stuff that is said by some very very bright people out there I mean he said you know everybody from astronauts who have walked on the moon to the guy who invented literally invented the first meteorological satellite sure he's too directors of the national hurricane center does that mean anything to anybody come on folks they get the guy who invented the first meteorology satellite you think he would know a little bit about whether globally and he's a person who says this human caused global warming is crap he would never say crap but right you got guys who walked on the moon the a PhD usually walked on the moon season science they walked on the moon there said this is garbage but Brian the consensus the majority says so there is no consensus yeah is so ridiculous that you mentioned that your goon so there was a consensus at one point the thought the earth was flat right it now listen to this a so he market calls me up the other day in and day says this could you give me a couple of quotes from your books regarding things that marks or angles may have said involving climate and utilizing the climate for purposes of you know for political purposes and I have the quotes I mean we're going back to the eighteen hundreds folks Karl Marx Frederick angles let me let me give you one here this is lengthy but these guys it's interesting because you can't find quickies from marks and angles because they were such long winded blow hards they would just talk and talk and talk and write and write and write your site it's almost as if the more words I use the smarter all sound so here is a lengthy cash this is actually one sentence but this is how these guys right this is Frederick angles it's a book called dialectics of nature eighteen eighty three at what he's saying is capitalism we'll kill planet earth and send the earth into a global climate catastrophe that would look like this okay is that a good set up here we go but inexorably the time will come when the declining warmth of the sun will no longer suffice to melt the ice thrusting itself forward from the polls with the human race crowding more and more about the equator will no longer find even there enough heat for life when gradually even the last trace of organic life will vanish and the earth and extinct frozen globe like the moon will circle in deepest darkness anything ever narrower orbit about the equally extinct son and at last fall into it that was Frederick angles in eighteen eighty three saying capitalism is gonna kill planet earth and this is what's going to happen it'll be a climate disaster they've they've been going down this road for the longest time okay let me give you another one this is Karl Marx in his book das capital volume one all progress in capitalistic agriculture is a progress in the art Natalie of robbing the labor but overall bring the soil but of robbing the soil all progress in increasing the fertility of the soil for a given time is a progress towards ruining the lasting sources of that fertility the more country starts as developments on the foundation of modern industry like the United States for example the more rapid is this process of destruction said other words capitalism will destroy the planet okay I'll give you one more one more this is Sir Edwin ray Lankester in a book called nature and man nineteen oh five ray Lankester was is a wallet jest at the University College in London and a very good friend of Karl Marx we may indeed compare civilized man to a successful rebel against nature who by every step forward renders himself liable to greater and greater penalties he has willingly abrogated and many important respects the laws of his mother nature by which the kingdom was heather to govern he has gained some power an advantage by doing so but is threatened on every hand by dangers and disasters hit there too restrained no retreat as possible his only hope is to control the sources of these dangers and disasters in other words mankind is a rebel against nature everything we do is to destroy the planet than in a capitalist and in the end at the end of the day we will destroy the planet this this is what the communists have been going for from the get go humans bad capitalism bad humans will destroy the planet unless stopped by the communists that's it that's it so what do you do when you get this harder money what's your hedge what do you do to prevent to say there's some inflation when you gonna do are you going to dive into the market now start buying stocks well some say buy low sell high what do you do I'm looking to gold and silver gold trading at about a four year low silver about an eight year low desert gold exchange give them a call today better prices lower commissions you can call

"It's morning edition from NPR news. Good morning. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. This story sure to set tongues. A wagon academic research makes the case in favor of gossip one study finds that people spend an average of fifty two minutes per day talking about other people and the gossip has a bad reputation as idle jealous vindictive. It's not always so bad. Here's NPR's Alison Aubrey if you want to know how much people gossip and what they gossip about one way to find out is to get them to wear a portable recording device that could capture their every word. That's what we're searchers did is part of the new study it included about five hundred people study author Megan Robins of the university of California riverside. So she wanted to know how much of gossip is trash talk and how much is positive, but what she uncovered kinda surprising. We actually found that the overwhelming majority of gossip was neutral. So about three quarters of the gossip that we heard in our sampled. For stations was neither positive or negative. In other words, people just love to talk about other people. But a lot of it is just chatter with no real judgment. Jeremy cone teaches psychology at Williams College. We show tons and tons of social information, but it isn't necessarily, you know, salacious or extreme think about your own conversations. A lot of it is just oh Judy. And Ted went to Florida uncle Jimmy had a kidney stone. Did you hear ama- gutter driver's license? Much of those just simply kind of documenting of the facts or just sharing information about others. This study has some other interesting findings to turns out women and men gossip about the same and extroverts gossip more than introverts now, many people do engage in negative judgmental gossip, but even this can serve a purpose. I think gossiping can be a very smart thing to do. That's lena. Martin a few of King's College London. She studied the influence. Of gossip in the workplace, it allows people to keep track of what's going on it allows people to bond and to create social alliances with other people from an evolutionary perspective. We are wired to gossip she says it can help build group cohesion and his sense of cooperation because when you gossip you can keep track of who is contravening and who was giving back to the group and who is being selfish and by sharing this information with your group members, you can exclude those those people who are not good group members who are social loafers in one of Martin 'scuse own studies. She analyzed what happens when a person learns that they're the one being gossiped about turns out people feel hurt and angry. But it can also motivate them to improve we found that negative gossip makes the full likely to repair the aspects of their behavior that they were criticized for so if people gossip that you always got. To work too late hearing that gossip could nudge to be on time and trigger a change in your behavior for the better Allison, Aubrey NPR news. So this winter was pretty warm and pretty wet across much of the United States. And for most states. This means not only more greenery, but also more rodents and more snakes. So how can you try and avoid snakes? If you're not a fan. And what do you do if you are bitten? Here's NPR's petty named the snakes we worry about the most are pit vipers copperheads. What am I gonna sense and rattlesnakes? The right now he's in a plastic strike boss through very defensive curled up. Yeah. He's been a coil with esker on his neck so ready to strike biologist. Jared FOX in woodsy snake friendly area in southern California. Fox works with canine, loft company, which runs rattlesnake avoidance classes. He trains dogs how to avoid snakes whose rattle for them. And for us is a warning. They don't want to hurt us. We are way too big. They cannot eat us. So it's purely defensive my dog Baxter took this training class. But I wanted to know how humans can avoid snakes. So I asked your doctor Mark Morocco to join me on a hike Baxter Baxter. Come try to keep your dog on a leash and then you're less likely to have Baxter. Get bit by snake? Morocco works at the Reagan UCLA medical center. He says the number one rule when hiking and snake territory. Stay on the trail. You wanna be able to see your feet don't get off into the high brush on the sides of the trail because that's where the snakes are going to be. They're going to be harder to see. And if you're rock climbing watch where you put your hands the next important thing to think about what you wear on your feet, it is Los Angeles. And so you will see people on trails like this in flip flops, not a good idea. Most people would argue that you should be wearing boots with high sides. If you're in a place where there are lots of snakes. I would just prefer that you least were shoes. And we do see some barefoot people who come into the emergency department. And you're saying you were barefoot where wearing long pants can also help since most adults get bitten in the lower leg every year. There are thousands of snake bites in the US many involving children I've seen a number of patients in my career little kids who've been bid on the face or the dominant hand because that's what kids do they see this thing they reach out to touch it and bang. They get a snake bite a bite on the face is more serious than a bite on the leg or hand and children can get very sick very quickly. If someone gets bitten Morocco says call nine one one immediately. It looks like a burn infection. All and once you have swelling and blistering, and you can have some bleeding and some redness, that's when we know there's a lot of venom in the bite. Anti-venom drugs are highly effective, which is why you should get to a hospital as soon as possible. In the meantime, don't do anything that you see on the movies and TV Turner kits and cutting. An ex over the thing and sucking the venom out dramatically, none of that has any effect on the outcome of snake bites. Instead, stay calm motionless. If possible to slow down the distribution of snake venom in your body when you get injected with snake venom, it's just like getting shot. So the harder your heart beats the higher your circulation, the more mixing blood and venom and moving it around. So I'm gonna keep it as localized to. Where the snake bite is as possible. Ideally, lay flat on the ground until the ambulance.

He trains dogs how to avoid snakes whose rattle for them. And for us is warning. They don't want to hurt us. We are way too big. They cannot eat us. So it's surely defensive my dog Baxter took this training class. But I wanted to know how humans can avoid, thanks. So I asked yard Dr Mark Morocco to join me on a hike Baxter Baxter. Come try to keep your dog on a leash. And then you're less likely to have Baxter. Get bit by snake back there. Morocco works at the Ronald Reagan UCLA medical center. He says the number one rule when hiking and snake territory, stay on the trail, you want to be able to see your feet don't get off into high brush on the sides of the trail because that's where the snakes are going to be and they're gonna be harder to see. And if you're rock climbing watch for you, put your hands, the next important thing to think about what you wear on your feet, it is Los Angeles.

In the meantime, don't do anything that you see on the movies and TV turn kits and cutting. An ex over the thing and sucking the venom out dramatically, none of that has any effect on the outcome of snake bites. Instead, stay calm motionless of possible to slow down the distribution of snake? Venom in your body when you get injected with snake venom, it's just like getting shot.
