"We Amy and I are Dynamic on the podcast is kind of Amy's uptight and I'm a hot mess that tends to be like our basic personas and what struck me about the book is that you are a Midway point between me and Amy like I was thinking this is my person Meredith is a hot mess mom. We're in the same camp and yet you have your opinions about how towels should be folded I do. How is that possible? It was an interesting attitude. I'd like, oh you can be both of these things. Well, I think so. They used to be such a hardcore type. And then I also had this really great experience of this tumor, which I do call a gift because it was a gift obviously now the the time when I thought that I was going to die or eat from a bag for the rest of my life with a tube, but I was blessed that it was a gift because it gave me this great perspective that it doesn't have to happen off. My way all of the time in order for life to continue on and I have to figure out what's the most important like I need to pick my battles. I have to pick my battles. And so I've kind of Fallen somewhere and I think that also happens to us as our kids get older and we've parented longer there are certain things that we can could just kind of like let them go and kind of, you know given to a little bit and then some things that are just sticking points. We might need some examples of those for one of our hosts. I used to have get all of the dishes done before bed. Like there couldn't be addition to sync like obviously a tornado or a robber is going to come in the middle of the night. See these dishes my house will be destroyed the robber until the other robbers about what a pig I am like, but that's not the case and if they do come in and you know, maybe they'll do the dishes for me. I don't know wouldn't Bank on that with Robert. No, but I did find a job. Realize like the house is still going to be standing in the morning. If I don't do the dishes. Yes, like I can just go to bed cuz they're going to be there tomorrow. And yes, I'm going to have do them tomorrow. But now some nights I can let that go off and other nights. It's like no I need this done to feel better. And we also talked about if it gives you a warm sense of comfort to have a clean kitchen. There's nothing wrong with that but it's just I had to personally let go of and I feel like Amy has taught me this on the podcast.

"meredith" Discussed on Pause
"First of all. My name is meredith and I work with momentum here. Calgarians. So for anyone who doesn't own momentum the Community Economic Development Organization. That uses economic approaches to poverty in Calgary, and so we believe that every person should have access and be able to participate. Fully, in the economy and work towards a shooting that and so as you can imagine that works sort of necessitates a number of of very broad indifference approaches in order to be effective as that's working not only with people who are experiencing poverty, which is a large body of work at momentum in and of itself, but also with the policymakers, community champions and businesses to and so the work I do specifically fits into sort of that second category we operate a network of community focused businesses called the local network offer training programs for individuals looking to develop socially minded local businesses an work at a systems level to really create the environment for these activities to be successful. and. So the rationale behind that work is the understanding that of course, if we're, it will create the conditions for an inclusive economy by as sort of supporting and furthering the work of others who care about the same things that we do. Will ultimately be further ahead in our mission. Amazing. Thank you for being here until with everything changing and happening just on a daily basis. Things are so rapid right now, it leads to lots of questions and thoughts on her mind, and if you'd like to share the first part of your question that would be lovely and I do know that it is both the economy and to make sense paired with what you do for work. Yeah of course. So yeah as I have mentioned before it's sort of A. Two part question. That I hold. So the first part being a sort of reflecting on what said Copeland Nineteen has revealed about the economy so far and so. I think in terms of this question, there have been some really just incredible demonstrations of collaboration and innovation I during this pandemic but it's also highlighted a lot of of course, inequality, Moore inequity where our systems really aren't as up to support everyone, and so they're sort of that positive in that negative this I'm thinking through right now I and so on. That first part of you know as stewards of the local network, we've witnessed businesses collaborating in some really innovative. I am bold ways. And funnily enough. I truly do credit the pandemic actually per providing a sort of the destruction as to make that possible. There's like no rulebook as they say for operating a business during a pandemic and I think that's really meant that businesses are able to really show up for each other in a different way than previously. In. So I actually I think the album was a previous guest of this podcast and so I'll maybe ucla him as an example has been collaborating with a of other businesses and organizations I in our network at generous solutions. For suicide prevention as well as a number of local. Firemen foods wires to offer virtual. I live cooking class. We've had so many businesses in our network offer up there like warehousing space or restaurant space. For example, on to share resources with one another we host networking events and have just these really wonderful large groups show up for these sort of collaborative networking conversations and so even able to support these kinds of. Conversations in collaborations in really exceeded an intensive ways it's really quite different than. Before. I'd say in that way, it's also affected us in our own work. In that, we're able to consider opportunities to lend this kind of tangible support that just really wasn't part of our work before So I'll give we launched the be local store, for example. So this sort of came out of a recognition that many businesses were struggling with the needs of get online quickly amid pandemic and dealing with lots of overhead and figuring out you know the Logistics Oba delivery system. and. So we thought, okay, why don't we create a marketplace where customers can access products across local businesses a number of local businesses in one sort of simple transaction and businesses can access multiple customers with only one drop off delivery per week, and we sort of a centralized the rest of of that for them and so yeah, there's a great learning there obviously in like Howard, flexing our muscles and Engaging and supporting the local economy and observing. How clever and open businesses have been? I mean comments about that actually just in a recent episode. Remember she back now about how I started seeing a shift to local practices. A lot of people I follow on social media supporting local more often or at least showing that they're supporting local more often which I love to see and I also love brought in the piece of how the different local organizations are helping. Each other out is we are coming back to this sensitive can be during the pandemic in. That's an opportunity that we might not have had without the pen. Yeah. Yeah it's really awesome and yeah, just lovely to observe in the local network. You know it's a values based business networking so We're comes together with this understanding that we have these shared I values and understanding of collaboration reciprocity and. You know what says sort of sustainable communities look like and so it's really been really wonderful to see businesses sort of acting out those those values during this time. So. These are all sort of like a positive reflections that we've had in engaging in the local economy during this time but there's also as sort of this other piece of inveigling inequity and so what we observe I really is that those who are more vulnerable economically but are also Moore have been sort of disproportionately negatively affected by a copay ninety nine I've been challenging myself to think about. How do we make the economic system more robust so that everyone can withstand. These shocks when they occur. And so. Now. They've kind of tied up that pace around how it showing the tracks in the economy. Should we jump forward to how are we GONNA? Keep keep the good things that have been happening throughout the pandemic moving forward and also address the vulnerabilities that have present as well. So then looking forward. I have mentioned the question in sort of a sitting with is, can we use some of these lessons or observations to shape the way? That we really like emerge from this. And I think part of it requires a letting go of this notion of when things go back to normal. A phrase. You sometimes hear right and instead being willing to dominated discussion with a new narrative as. A, what do we want our new normal to look like and so I just recognizing nets business models have changed our entire economic climate has changed and so yeah, I suppose I. Really Hope that we're able to look at this sort of a a fresh perspective that is okay with a future that doesn't look like the past, and so I think that's one piece of it and I think that is happening to some extent. For example, as I mentioned to a before I've been I'm really quite excited by how discussions of universal basic income have been making their way into sort of the mainstream at just an indicator even that people are understanding a need for more socially robust. Economy, and I've spoken to some business owners in the network who have completely changed their business models during this very short time period I and really take the perspective that you know this is their new business model and they're not going back. Then of course, there are others as sort of can't wait to go. Back to normal as they say and so I'm like I said the question I'm just sort of holding his how can we continue these collaborations and innovations and continue the conversations that are sort of critically examining the cracks in our system so that we can all come out stronger. Yeah. You bring in a very neat point. There have how do we balance the two of getting back to normal in the like the good things that used to be our normal. But then how do we do we move to a new system that is supporting people and organizations and things that were supported for the pandemic like this strange balance need to fix a lot of these vulnerabilities we also want to be able to do some of the things and yeah definitely interesting teeter totter I picture at us. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. In terms of forward, you know I hope these questions. But then have to ask myself okay like how how do we make these things possible or reality, and so I know I certainly have a desire for this sort of new and improved economic system coming out of a pandemic and I think it is possible I think for example, there are ways that public policy can support in terms of supporting the solar, the local economy supporting local for crewmen procurement from. March lines, groups, and black indigenous people of color. For example, I think there are ways that businesses can continue these conversations and I think that individuals can also make really for change simply by where they choose to spend and save in those. Sort of small choices that we make every day. and. So yeah I'm just or Novem challenging myself I suppose now to dive in each one of those things a little bit more in understands like what are the the tangible actions that we take in each of those areas to move this forward I'm also interested to understand more about. Sort of what's happening in the ecosystem to for these conversations as well. Yeah good point we've been talking about these big questions not elec comes after this like having, we actually do this and move it forward and yeah not. Too old practices. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely and I think Yeah. That's where we can really start seeing some like lasting change as well. Yeah I hope we do see some change come from this. I'm I'm thinking we will, and I'm hopeful we will and I guess we'll have to. Wait and see makes action that it happened. No. Absolutely. When one of the things that I wanted to to bring back up because I just loved it he said, we need to make the economic system more robust and start looking at it in different ways in fixing these vulnerabilities that we're seeing and you also brought up the point that the pandemic has had. Two Sides to the coin. It's curious the positive things that have come from it like you said, this collaboration bringing back to community, and then also these negative things that it's hit a lot of communities harder than some an it's young as we need to start doing something about that and not not not that we haven't seen that before but I think maybe it's been the fire underneath a lot of people to start getting those things really moving into practice so. Yeah absolutely. The example that comes to mind for me when we're thinking about that is. Sort of the effects of Kobe's in some of these tacking facilities, for example, writes in it's like, okay. While we then should question like what are the demographics that are primarily working in these conditions and questioning if that plays a role in how we've responded. or The working conditions that they're they're in that allows us to happen right and then also asking ourselves. Okay. We'll. What are the supports in place that? Yeah allow us to support people through that I. Think about people and Care Facilities, for example, who are perhaps more vulnerable and who are also more vulnerable to the pandemic. And how do we really and tip the scales a little bits so that their treated more equitably during the pandemic? During and then even like you said afterwards. Pandemic hopefully. Yeah. Yeah, just changing those systems. Yeah. Yeah. Well, this has been a wonderful conversation. Thank you for for sharing thoughts that are on your mind in the questions you're sitting with and actionable items moving forward of how to keep the questions questions going. Oh, of.

Character of God: The Uniquely Biblical View of Grace
"In the middle of a series discussing the character of God attributes God assigns himself in really passage in exodus thirty four. Last week, we looked at the first word used to describe himself that he's compassionate. And this week we're GONNA look at the second word. That God is Gracious. When we call someone. Gracious. We often means something like courteous like she was gracious with that stranger, but that's not what God means by. Gracious. So the word that God uses an extra thirty, four six is Han noon Hebrew word honeymoon there's a noun. Which means grace or favor to be an object or a person who has caned means that it's something desirable folks delight and pleasure in favor. The focus of the word fan isn't just on the beauty or elegance of the object, but it's about how the beauty or charm of that object is perceived in the eyes of the observer and so Hain refers to something that's valuable or the generates a favorable response generates favor when I look at it I'm like I like that is an interesting use of the word grace now, very common biblical phrase it appears forty seven. Times. Is the phrase to find Cain in his or her is in other words to find favour or delight in someone is. This phrase is a request for someone to look upon you as favorable or even desirable. If you go through these forty-seven examples, you'll see a pattern that when somebody finds pain in the eyes of another, it's almost always the person who finds the plan is in a subordinate position there have low status or they're vulnerable and so to find pain in the eyes of someone means Pathet, you're being given gift of. Kindness by someone who you don't properly deserve it or or dont necessarily meredith. It's a gift for someone to consistently give this kind of favor and delight means that they are gracious.

I. Know I'M Thinking, the last place I saw one was in Mesa Arizona Okay I just have to take a Selfie with it because I'm like here's how you know Humpty kind of manages to be wherever I am but the sculptures are really a nice walk because they also take you through the Rock Glen area in Mason City, which is where there are other Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes.

She knew. Are. Quarantine boundaries and we talked you know she was clear about.

I I approve I really like your long hair. You're the first person I think to compliment my long hair and it made me feel good about my like I hadn't even really realized it had gotten long and one day you were like Oh your hair and I'm I'm just Kinda you know I have not had very long hair.

"meredith" Discussed on Night Call
"I you know this is complicated like people need to eat. People need jobs. Like we. Don't you know that is a problem? I like why you know why. Why do we have to spend so much of a finite magical lifetime in the service of wage work I think that's a question. Sort of you know that frames is a bit, but I don't you know like I? Don't know I I was growing up and one other things zoo gave me what sort of access to sort of class implementing those mannerisms that like I wouldn't have had otherwise you know in college. Did that extent I started organizing when I realized what I was doing as critic and like internal, a researcher wasn't actually helping thing, but again I think that's. You know if you'RE GONNA go up against power with other people. If you're in a position to do that through that recognize that there are a lot of people who aren't always in that position later there are people on visas. There are people who are the sole. Breadwinner but that there are ways to put at least begin to build like the relational bonds of solidarity with the people around you, which in itself I think is is extremely radical. Right when you begin to replace your identity and a workplace. You know. When you stop identifying with your sort of position within a hierarchy as who you are, and how you fit in the space and start identifying with your relationships with the people around you and what you owe them as a practice of solidarity. A transformative thing to do, and it is like the reason that You know like capital has fought back against those form, and that those have changed much over know years and years. Freight like that is how you build power so I think at least engaging in that, and then you know knowing that to be safe. You're gonNA need in your critical mass so figure out where you start from there. We'll also I think by talking about how you know. We need to engage with technology as both users, and in a many of us in like a professional capacity, the fact that it's it is such a privilege to be able to opt out of those things that almost none of us are afforded right now, so the it seems like the best path forward is to like you said to to organize to recognize the power of kind of speaking up, and like you know uniting and being critical of these. These institutions is really the only option like I I can't imagine right now. Many people can afford to quit a job. It's probably the worst time in the world to consider that and also just you know the connection offered by social media when everyone is isolated. It's you know it's a difficult time to consider just like making the choice to opt out of those things, so I make sense, and frankly you can opt out right. You are the surveilled right collecting it from. St Paul's collecting from sensors collecting it from your credit card collecting it from the Geo data on your phone. You cannot carry a phone, but then you can't get working right. They're collecting it from data brokers that you know, pull from. You know your family's social media profiles, so there isn't. Again. It's not an individual, even if you were to be sort of incredibly squeaky clean, even an absence of data can be PAG as sort of data right so. It's not I. Think users is actually almost a data term in this case we're. used. Well. Thank you so much for joining us this week. Meredith this has been such a into lightning conversation and we really appreciate all of your insight and experience and everything. Yeah to say it's great Where can people find you? Online can find me on twitter You can also visit the now institute website for some of the work. That you know. That brilliant team is doing that I'm doing with them. Yeah I think that's that's about it I would also encourage people in Texas checkout tech workers, coalition. which is a you know, a a loose organization that is helping workers, impact, organized and understand their power and he's. To me, also awesome well. Thank you so much merit and we hope to have you back. A really really great conversation, so thank you so much wasn't the light of a great. Thank you. Well..

"Next to them like all sorts of like you know real world nations to the hype that is being sort of you know floated around these these approaches, and you know again you need you need pets data to be using custom that the do contact tracing and frankly contact thing is best done by like an army of human beings are doing the hard work of of you know what know. Public in doing the work that public health experts yeah. Yeah Meredith, one thing I really love about your work. you use the word Talk Hubris I, think you're really good at calling out tech Hubris and especially at sort of talking about promises that tech companies make that they can't actually deliver on an attack that doesn't exist. That's being sold. You had to tweet the other day about. software that was being sold to the Pentagon that was supposed to recognize human emotions. And you said, let me save you a billion dollars and tell you that this doesn't work. Surprise It's so y'all it is so. It I mean we've twenty years I. Think and more I'm not. You know I'm not a train historian and this, but I'd like came up in fact, right like we've just sort of trusted this narrative, but you. Pet Company. Revenue Gains, are, you know are are synonymous with progress. Right with scientific progress with social progress with sort of you know the betterment of the world and I. Think we all know that more or less bullshit, but I think it has combined with this kind of you know the way in which tech supremacy has become part of our our just general narrative and people are. Are Afraid to question these technologies right you see. There's this constant kind of derisive commentary on twitter like I've only senators were smart enough to question ducker right, but like we are in a context where for some reason we made it okay for people with sort elite had nickel education that had access and expertise the certain information. Most people don't to sort of you. Assume that the right. Make significant policy decisions significant social decision significant on behalf of millions and billions of others you know rested with the you know with only that the only people with this training sort of had that right, and that no one who you know if you didn't have a CS degree from Stanford. You can't actually be talking about these things so I think you know under that sort of smokescreen. You know so much of this. Stuff is a scam. Right? That emotion recognition stuff like that is being piped into every market. Market you could imagine right. There's job interview software that based on your tone of voice based on your micro expressions based on how you you sound what your mannerisms are will determine if you're going to be a good worker or not right like we're looking at something new scientific consensus around this that you can automate that type of detection, and you're looking at the resurgence of Principles physionomy and Ray Science and this idea that someone's worth can be determined by their sort of you know external physical characteristics which. Hasn't there been mentioned of that like the museum that sort of thing for policing two or am I? MISSED REMEMBERING BECAUSE I've Alec it. You know one of the issues where people are like. Give us specific evidence of this and one of the issues is a lot of the technologies that are being used or produced by private firms, and then they're procured by governments or private businesses, and that whole process is, either you know if if we're talking about like policing agencies, oftentimes, it's classified or hidden based on national security. If we're talking about private firms, a pin behind trade secrecy, so we know some examples, but I think it's. Important to recognize like it is the the obscurities structural right? It's an essential and there's a lot we don't know, but we do know that you know. Police departments are being sold facial recognition systems that claim to sort of detect aggression in people's faces, and obviously, when researchers have looked at these, they are like extraordinarily racist right or looked at similar systems. Right 'cause, getting access to some of these is also hard because what I just mentioned, but yeah you believe is using the military is like the military a big old. that the military certainly using it, schools are using it et Cetera. We- what context schools using it? Our our students offensive by. Are they paying attention as Lord racket that is funnelling. Money? For for sort of security that was kind of pumped into school districts thing because of the school shooting. Our will and that money is now being used to buy sort of security cameras to you know that that are. And at police to schools on a lot of those you know like detect suspicious activity again. This is sort of the inference that what your body looks like, and what it does can somehow translate into a magical assessment of You know of criminality. Terrifying, I wanted to ask you also just like. We go. Really when you think about how that could also be applied now that students are going to be doing remote learning, and they're all gonna be zoom and I, mean it's the the idea that kind of evolve in an even more sinister ways it. Online proctoring software that now sort of. You know claims to the attentiveness. About, yeah. I also wanted to ask if there was a point. If you so, you've been in the tech world for a long time. What was there a kind of evolution for you at a point? Did you become kind of like more concerned and more aware of these issues, and when you enter the tech world? Like how aware were you of the kind of like ways that this could be manipulated and racist or really? You know till like eliminate you know the personal privacy of like. When did did you kind of become aware of that in this sense? I I don't have like A. There wasn't one Chris revelation, but I you know. I started at Google in two thousand and six right out of Undergrad and I took the dog food will, because they offered it to me, and I was broke right so like for me, it was very. It was very simple. Right like rich kids went to Grad School, and now I was not one of them, and I needed a job because there was a certain amount of money at my bank account, and it needed to be more money. Though like I I also I mean I, don't know I. Come from a class of where like the point of a job is to do the least amount work and get the most amount of money. And there wasn't this identity like your job was not we were or your passage necessarily so I kind of entered it like that right then and then I, was you know and I did come from I kind of been enrolled in sort of radical. Politics radical spaces as a teen, and that was sort of where I was at home, and so there was a whole while time a big kind of Google. Like is this I don't have technical training. I had to figure out a lot of these things by like asking people and I think part of that process was like a demystification journey for me, right? What the fuck in call it that, but that's actually not like just a confusing word. Okay, I'm like! Recognizing that it wasn't magic that a lot of the ground truth was really shaky that a lot of this sort of you know a lot of this was sort of heights. That's.

Welcome back tonight, call. We are joined today by our very special guest. Meredith wait occur. Meredith is a research professor and the CO founder of the AI now institute at Nyu her work focuses on the social implications of artificial intelligence and the tech industry responsible for it previously she worked at Google for thirteen years where she founded the company's research group, and helped lead Labour, organizing efforts, including the Google walkout and efforts to end ai contracts with the US. Department of Defense Her work driven by the belief that worker, power, collective action and strong social movements are necessary to ensure meaningful tech accountability. Welcome Meredith. Thank you molly. Thanks so much for being with us this week. Yeah, I'm happy to be here Yeah I, so I feel like we. We constantly are saying among ourselves that we wish that like. We had kind of an INFOSEC expert on call at all times, so you are going to be our INFOSEC expert for the next. so just strap in. I think that like maybe a good way to kick it off were just talking about? Kind of the specific concern recently about. About a surveillance, specifically, protests and among activists particularly in Portland. There's been concerns that I know you've been talking about on your twitter about Just sort of the kind of murky waters of of of capturing face data and and other kinds of data from these events it's it's like a weird new world that we're all navigate, and unfortunately there's like Proto fascist slash fascist forces that are taking advantage of that not quite figured out world so yeah, is there anything particularly from that? That has been surprising to you recently. Yeah I mean, let's yeah, let's let's open up. The whole can were. Surprise isn't the word right I think. We know that these tools of centralized power social control surveillance exist, and frankly have existed for some time. I think what we're beginning recognizes what they look like in the hands of you know I think pro fascist is a bit of a a a diplomatic term for what we're seeing with the you know. The the federal troops that you know as a h s is embroiled Matt You know, but but you know I. Think I I. Don't think I'm surprised I think this is. It's extremely troubling. Right and a lot of what? You know my sense is would a lot of people who are sort of historic this moment looking back at like well, this is you know this is how fascism looks when you know suddenly there is a you know there are a domestic militia that is serving. You know the goals of the you know authoritarian party on the streets what we haven't seen before is. With the type of Surveillance, afford instances that these folks right with the ability to you know by location data and other intimate data from you know data brokers with the ties that companies like talents here and others have directly to the trump administration with the sort of you know the way in which we have now sort of structured our our social and political live around the necessity of having these network infrastructures that are necessarily collecting data about us data making inferences about. whether or not we call that surveillance whether or not we call having a private company own all of our g mail going back for years and years surveillance. You know that's be bedrock on which all of this network technology and the industry that has been built around it is is resting, and we're now seeing what happens when the you know happy, primary colored promises of Tech. Actually are kept right so so here. We are but you know again. This isn't what we saw this in Ferguson. You know standing rock a number of these. Dynamics were at play. We saw with the pandemic powers that were given to ice by trump that they now sort of you know this is permitted under those powers for these you know for for federal agents to be deployed in this way, but the views, drones and other surveillance capabilities to you know track and what we're seeing is. You harass harm yeah. Yeah I mean it's like ironically as in all the ways that the the the uprisings right now are taking place in the same way at the same time as the the pandemic, it's like. At the same time that we're the other countries have enacted contact tracing, and that sort of staying, and that's something that we're talking about here. It's like we also see we're. We're immediately living through the downsides of something like contact Tracy and currently as opposed to like a hypothetical could have sometimes. Yes, yeah, I mean contacting a great example of just like how? While Tex Hubris is right because we you know the foundation, we are in a failed failing president progressive state right now right like we don't have testing that is clearly deployed. We certainly don't have a social safety net that would enable people to make us sort of choice about their protection. Right like Oh. Maybe you know I have received a ping. That I was in contact with someone who tested positive, which presumes the presence of tests right? And now I need to stay home for two weeks rate. You know most people don't even have two weeks. Vacation plans to take. Let alone you know the you know. The the resources to you know, make that choice for community and self care so I think what we're looking at. You know the idea that you could slap contact tracing on that when you don't have ground truth data around testing when people aren't in a position to you know, make a choice for public health when we don't have the politics of care right anywhere in our infrastructure. Is that the kind of lake? We'll solve it with tech. Tech while ignoring those sort of bedrock conditions that would be you know. Necessitate that are necessary for text to you know I even have a conversation of whether sort of tech based contracting tasting contact tracing could work, and there's a bunch of problems with base contract tracing especially Bluetooth base. It doesn't know when it's going through walls, so you can get a contact traits that it's like if you're next to somebody in a car, it will..

"It, but then it was really hard to get tested and I was very lucky to be able to, but I mean when you interview people about problems that they're facing, and for which they are seeing a doctor, there are of course things like a fever that you can measure, but then there are also just general. How are you feeling questions? And if you're seeing a doctor, chances are you're not feeling great, so you have to be able to know what's going on on an individual level before you see patient otherwise, you're putting everyone at risk. Risk and that can really only be accomplished with a test. Yeah, I mean I really feel for people that are working in doctor's offices and hospitals right now because you. You need a hospital to be that safe zone, but yeah, there's so many factors that we don't have under control because we don't have testing and there's so much protocol that we don't have yet either like I. You know I am way overdue for just a Dennis checkup at this point and I've been putting it off because it's not essential like I had to get my tooth. Tooth pulled I haven't had a dentist checkup a while. I don't know it's just like well. When when can I do that? It's like this it's the same thing is like a regular checkup or getting a physical or something like that. It's like we I think when we everybody was under the assumption that it was only going to be for three months. It's like okay well. I can put off physical for three months. Who Cares, but now it's like okay if this is going to be going on for a year year and a half lake what. What is the best practice in that case just to not take care of yourself? And there's no, there's no. There's been no guidance around that from Seattle especially here where there are things like for instance I was talking with someone and they weren't able to get their contact lens prescription because it was like a month. You know past its expiration date in Canada. My friend said you can. If you're slightly past, your prescription date and there are circumstances like this. This they will just send you your contact lenses, but because they're classified as something that almost like is adjustable, they go like inside your body. Then they are regulated, so it's she has to go now to the eye doctor and there's things like that where it's like you know for certain types of medications that require a doctor's visit. The patient might want to not take the. The chance on exposing their doctor, but then they're not going to get the medication that they need. So there are all of these complicating factors that might make patients. Go see the doctor even if they weren't able to get a test, even if they didn't feel great, and that's such a terrifying predicament. There's really no right way to handle it and I think we're also seeing now. Now Lake three months thing I feel like we always kind of thought was bullshit. It was just like to by people enough time because they can't think beyond like three months to something, everyone can handle if they had said it was going to be a year or two people would have flipped out more I definitely felt strongly that it was going to be a year. Just from the get really yeah I. Because I was like they're. They're trying to be comforting, but like nothing they're has any concrete plan. You know but I didn't think that even even as somebody who thought it was going to be a year. I was still like five months from now will at least have testing or something you know we'll have like regulated testing, right and the fact that we are five months into this and. It's still so ticky tack and doesn't seem like it's GonNa get better and if you get a test, they're still enough of a delay in getting your results that it's. It's so much less useful than the rapids results tests, which I think are still like one hundred and twenty five dollars here that you can get an urgent care and those the seventy percent accurate ones like I I think that those are more accurate. I've heard of a no. Yeah No, no says. Moore is more accurate. The no swab is more accurate. Cheek swabs though there have been instances of people getting positive CHEEK SWAB, test results, and they never actually swabbed cheeks. They like got in line. Had appointment turned around because of the weight was too long or whatever, and then they get a call or an email that tested positive and they were like No I didn't yeah. The halley Swab test is being run through A. Nonprofit created by Sean Penn. is that curative care or whatever? Yeah so? Again it just seems like the privatize nature of all these things as part of the problem. that. We don't just have nationalized healthcare where everybody could get tested That'd be great. That'd be nice. I know well we're GONNA. Take a break and when we come back. We're going to be joined by our guest this week. Meredith whittaker to talk about. surveillance. Labor rates artificial intelligence, so-called and so much more so stay tuned for that. I'm Devin leary and I'm Carolina Barlow.

"Night. Call a call in show for our DYSTOPIA in reality. Mighty Miss Emily Ashida and with me on the other line are Molly, Lambert and test Lynch also stay tuned because later in the show we have Meredith Whitaker, the research professor and Co founder of the A I now institute at Nyu She was also involved in the Google walkouts. She's awesome, so please stick around to hear her come by later. Hi, guys, but I? I'm back I'm back for my trek across the country. Thank you both for holding down the Fort while I- communed with the the highway after. The hereafter highway. Yeah, I did A. Six Day trip across the country and it wouldn't have been complete if I didn't stay at a ghost hotel my last night in Mobile Alabama, so I actually I mean I wish that I had a more colorful story to share with you because you guys are like calls from the hotel like like. Tell us what it's like. It was like it was. Nice. It was like a nice kind of very southern style old hotel. That was surprisingly affordable. Which is why I went? There was like there's got to be a scam like I'm not the benefit of a ghost. I was like what's the catch because it's so nice, it was like one of the cleanest places I stayed, which was a big concern over my trip, but I. also you know it's on the. It's on all these lists of haunted hotels in in the south, and since it's called the Malaga in its in Mobile Alabama I. You know I, booked it and then I went. I should have done this in the other. Order I it and then I went looking for ghost stories about it but there was one I sent. You guys that I just want to bring up again because it. It actually did kind of freak me out But This is on I wish I remember what this is on, but somebody said My sister and I stayed at the Malaga in in summer, Nineteen, ninety five they had a great dinner and spend their time out on the balcony, and during the evening, but in the middle of the night I was awakened by my sister, screaming bloody murder, because somewhat crawled into bed with her and even worse. She realized there was no one there the next day they asked the front friend dusk about it, and apparently the room they were in was the. The one with the activity which apparently room one. Oh, seven at this hotel, so I stayed in room one? Oh three! I was two doors down from there, but I wasn't historic room. There are parts of the hotel that were a part of the original structure, and then ones that came in later so I made sure to get one that was like in in the good and haunted zone There's other stuff that I read about it. That said like it was a there's creaking and activity, and apparently because it was used as a hideout for confederate soldiers. which was like it was mobile Alabama where why are the? Out But I guess I don't know what how that worked. As with all things in the south is incredibly haunted as with all things in America's incredibly hunted but But nothing really weird happened while I was there. They said it was pretty chill and just sort of Nice to be somewhere. That was like not a chain hotel. Who is just like pleasant? But a weird thing did happen when I there was like a portrait of like a southern bell on the wall next to my bed, and I was just like lying in bed, looking at my phone, and then I like aimlessly sort of put my phone up and tried to take a picture of it, and my phone would not take a picture of it at tried and tried and it did. Did this weird glitch. E thing that I've. My phone has never done before. Where like the image on? It seemed to slow down. It wasn't like It wasn't in sync with like how I was moving my phone around. It was sort of like there's a big delay and it was like in slow Mo and then I just turned it, and I pointed at another part of the room. And it took a picture just fine then. I went back to take a picture of the and it can take a picture the. So. I have a blurry dark photo that it tried to take, but it would not. Get a proper photo, so that's as weird as guy. That's pretty weird. It's pretty weird yeah. But I wanted to I wanted a real encounter I want I want to believe? But I guess next time whenever I make my trip back. Okay, I'll try to hit all the Hans. Portrait good enough. Yeah, I'll. I'll take it I'm speaking of haunted things and and the cousin of haunted things which he thinks it's been a while since we've had a moon minute. Minute I think it's time for a minute. Because baby witches were trying to heck's the moon. Baby which is for which talk, which is the witch? Of TIKTOK. Yeah everything comes from Tiktok now apparently. Is this just going to pivot to be a hundred percent tiktok podcasts because they're giving us lots of material recently, we're in tick pod. Yeah, take back in which. I just I also I was not online a lot but I. Just I did see a lot of stuff every time I go on twitter. People just being like what's up with the Moon. And I didn't know what people are talking about most of the time, but then and then I. I caught onto this thing that was going on with with the baby, which is where apparently it became a thing on Tiktok to heck's the Moon They first tried to Hex. The FE, which are like a like kind of ferries like. The fair folk Celtic specific fairy folk. Yes, yeah, and then and then they decided sued to try the moon. and. It's not clear to me. Why then for walls which just feels like for? The lulls feels like a very chaotic spirit to go into being a baby, which, but that's the nature of being a baby witch but people were getting really mad, and there was a rumor floating around twitter, which I have no idea if it's true or not that a twelve year old girl was was killed after trying to. Heck's the Moon Oh God. This feels very creepy pasta. But I. don't so I have no I I mean if that's true, it's horrible. I also don't know if the moon is responsible, but either way bad bad news, but but still like this kind of urban legends grew up around these moon heck's. That are growing on the reasons why you shouldn't. Heck's the moon or pretty straightforward I guess It's because any well anytime. You do evil magic. It's GonNa. Come back to you and come back to you times three. They say, but taxing the moon also angers the gods that rule the moon. Who are Apollo and Artemis I think Artemis rules the. The Moon Apollo rules to sign at Apollo is is twins with artists yachts right so the adds mad. If you do anything, insult, his sister, yeah, but also so now the baby which is were saying they were going to curse the sign, and if you mess with Apollo apparently Apollo rules, you know the arts and creativity but also healing and medicine. So, not a super smart thing to do if tiny..
How To Communicate With Your Body Using The Language Of Energy With Ellen Meredith
"So to bring on our special guest for today Ellen Meredith Ellen is the author of the newly released book which we're going to talk about today. The language your body's speaks and intuitive and energy medicine breath with thirty years of experience. She has served on the Faculty of Energy Medicine by near Donna Eden since two thousand and dead and ditches. Healing techniques all over the world. And in today's episode, we're GONNA explore what she shared in her new book. The language. Your Body speaks to Ellen. Are you ready to inspire. Awe! But what I want to? Do is maybe help people. Find their inner inspiration, the inspiration that comes from them, because each of us is inspired by different things, and in different ways and I love to celebrate how different we are and helping people find their own path to To Awareness Afo I love that you sort of. Play the role of a mentor so that you can find people in the regulations and allowing them to take steps that will help them find their way, which is one full We usually start our show with the any inspirational court. Is it a cord that comes to mind right now? Something that you can share and maybe tell us how you apply that court in your day-today life. Oh Wow okay I'm not one of those people who actually works for quotes from quotes I actually like to come up with things to stay in the moment that are true for the moment because I'm really a language. And so That's a hard one for I. don't carry around. Quite S- per. Se so yeah. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA. Give one. In that way, but I'm hoping that as as we talk I'll say things that will strike on people and. They don't have to quote me, but maybe awaken them to their own quote. Create sounds good. I love that We're GONNA, have some gun moments. Today's episode because I love Qigong and I know that in your book you draw a lot from traditional Chinese medicine. Right when you talk about five elements, dog bar the Meridians and things like that So how did it all begin you like? Where did it all start Maybe she could talk about your childhood. What was it like? Okay well I was originally trained by inner teachers and It actually started as you know before I became aware that I was psychic or intuitive abilities, I was very attuned to languages and I talked a little in the book about how I used to listen to foreign language programs. All the time I was just fascinated and I felt like I am I could understand them, even though I didn't know what the words were I felt like there's something in language that speaks to US beneath the specifics of the words, and then later on. I writer, I'm a creative writer as well as I finished a novel, and I was waiting for inspiration and my grandmother WHO's dead so up behind me with a message for me. and. I thought well. This is interesting and I voted down. And through a series of coincidences, I ended up at a little, psychic fair, and the psychic looked at me, and she said you're maternal. Grandmother is standing behind you message for you, and then she repeated the message that I had gotten already. And I was a little bit of a Brat I said well. It doesn't have anything new to say. But, but I was very interested is. I s the psychic. Are you reading my mind, or are you really tuning into my grandmother? Is She really there and I give her credit because this was a five dollar reading and she said. My belief that your grandmother's really there and that you're picking up on her energy, and that you can get messages, and if you just would slow down, listen, you would hear them so couple days later I was cleaning my house, which was an unusual activity for me at the time. And I noticed the ticker tape in my head of letters and I thought yeah. Wonder if they say anything, so I started writing them letter by letter on the typewriter, and they were a message from my inner teachers, and they said we're going to teach. We're GONNA. Come train. You were GONNA give you. We're going to give you a insights. We're going to explain things, and then you're going to have experiences in your life that teach you how to understand the perspective that were introducing, and so I went through a very intensive at least well. Trained because say seven years, but it's forty plus years. I've been doing it for many many years now, and they're still trading me. But they did at some point. They. Get very ill and in the process of healing. You'RE GONNA learn how to become a healer. And I thought well. That's okay. Wasn't something that I set out to do. But it happened and moved to California I did get very sick. I went to a doctor who said I can't help you. What you have isn't medical, or you know isn't something that medicine can help you going to send you to a complimentary. Practitioner. And so I went to this applied kinesiology. She was a chiropractor and I'm Chris just enchanted? She worked with Meridians and and various subtle energies, and I had never heard of any of this stuff, and what I discovered in the process of getting better was that I could see my own energies I could see her energies. I could predict what the muscle test they do. Muscle testing in that tradition what they were going to say and I could look at the pills on the wall of the supplements and I knew which ones I needed, and what doses would be and ever occurred to me that this was possible except. There I was with nothing to live there while she worked with me and it was like I. This woken me and. That's how I got started and. When I was? Had recovered that practiser called and said Hey, can you do that with other people and I said? And I went in, and I was able to see what was going on for other people, so I started working in her office as a medical intuitive and people started coming for channel readings and healings and it just it just grew from there
'Palm Springs' Romantic Comedy Is A Total Winner For The Lockdown Era
"Are film critic Justin. Chang says it could be an especially good time to watch palm springs, a romantic comedy about two people forced to repeat the same day. Over and over again it stars Andy Sandberg, and Kristen, Milly Odi it streaming on Hulu and playing in some drive in theaters around the country. Palm Springs a hot ticket at this year's Sundance Film Festival one of the last public events to take place before the movie industry shutdown. I didn't see it there, but having caught up with it months later at home I can't help but feel as though this breezily entertaining movie. Please a little differently in the era of covid nineteen. It's a comedy. About is the LATIAN repetition which might not sound too appealing at a time when many of us are also leading lives of isolation and repetition. But don't let that dissuade you. This first feature directed by Max barbeque cow, and written by Andy Sierra turns out to be a total winner, Sharp, funny, and even profound in a sneakily offhand way. The story is a riff on that Herald Ramos Classic Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray had to keep replaying the same day until he learned to become a selfless person, but palm springs is trying to push that message. It knows that just getting through life with your dignity intact can be hard enough. That's certainly true for Sarah played by Kristen me not who's serving as maid of honor in her sister's wedding in the California desert town of Palm Springs. S Sarah Drinks too much and stumbles her way through the reception. She finds herself intrigued by one of the Guests Niles played by Andy, Sandberg. Niles is kind of a goofball, but also manages to work the room with disarming ease. It's almost as if he's been through this event before and knows everything that's going to happen. Sarah finds out why when she follows him that night into a mysterious cave out in the desert. Within seconds she's waking up the next morning only to find that. It's actually the same morning as before the morning of the wedding. Time has reset itself. In a panic Sarah Trucks Down Niles at the hotel where they're staying. He explains that when she entered the cave, she made a big mistake because he followed me. What's going on? I tried to stop. But, what is this? When is this? Yeah. About that so. This is today. Today is yesterday and tomorrow is also today. It's one of. Infinite time loop situations you might have heard about. That I might have heard about. There's been a lot of those infinite time loop situations in recent movies and TV. Some of them excellent like the Tom. Cruise Action Thriller Edge of tomorrow in the NETFLIX's mystery series. Russian doll. The pop savvy makers of Palm Springs clearly no those stories and suspect that you might know them to. As a result, they're able to jettison a lot of the usual exposition about how this world works and simply cut to the chase. Sarah is eager to bust out of the time loop but Niles. WHO's been stuck here for ages tries to dissuade her. Virtuous acts won't work. Suicide won't work although that doesn't Stop Sarah driving straight into the path of an oncoming truck just to see what happens. Eventually Niles persuades her to stop fighting the space time continuum, and just enjoy their time together, and so she does with the threat of permanent removed. These two misfits are suddenly free to embrace the craziness of every moment. Sometimes, they blow off the wedding to go on long desert drives and hang out in bars. Sometimes they stick around for the wedding, so they can play tricks on the guests. WHO WON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ANYWAY? The guests are played by fine actors. Including Peter Gallagher June squibb and Meredith Hagner. J. K. Simmons also gives a terrific wildcard performance as a guy who POPs up at the wedding on Sundays, but not others for reasons that the story will soon make amusingly clear. As fiendishly clever, as it is on the surface, palm springs has a pretty straightforward takeaway, since life can sometimes be pointless and tedious whether you're stuck in a time loop or not, you might as well spend it with someone you love. It's pretty good advice. Even Still Sarah doesn't know how much longer she can stand being trapped in this desert purgatory, especially since Niles seem so lazily resigned as fate. I won't give away whether they succeed in escaping or not I will say that the movie doesn't entirely avoid a tired gender dynamic in which a smart determined woman has to expend a lot of emotional and mental energy, and just to get her boyfriend to WanNa move forward. But I love the way the actors conspired subvert that Dynamic Sandberg isn't that's Hilarious as he was in the Music Biz? Satire pop star never stopped never stopping, but he does have the whole. Doofus slacker routine down Pat. But, he's eclipsed by Milly Ot, a versatile performer who won a grammy for the Broadway musical once, and who can turn from madcap comedy to breathtaking emotion on a dime. I'd watch her. Any Day.

Private equity investments may be coming to your 401(k)
"High the Dow down nearly seven percent today Jamie Meredith from half until it's in our guest here on the KDKA radio evening magazine Jamie let me pivot here I was reading an article about the the potential of private equity being available or in it for a one case a lot of folks are running the other way they they say that that would be terrible can you maybe fill folks in on what is actually being floated out there I is it pertains to potential investment options for four oh one K.'s in the future yeah absolutely so private equity is a way to invest in companies that really buy passes the stock market so a company would issue stock and sell it directly to investors but typically you have to be what's called a qualified institutional buyer to to participate in in private equity that means you have to either have a significant amount of money or a great deal of of investment experience so a lot of those opportunities are shut off to your typical fire so there have been folks clamoring to add private equity to four oh one K. programs because for most of us your four one K. is your largest investment balance in relatively speaking private equity has done fairly well relative to your average stock in the market now I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of that because private equity comes with its own risks number one there's no liquid market so you really can't sell it and if the company starts to go down the wrong path and is it you the it's it's doing poorly you may not be able to sell those shares because there's no market the seller to so could be a great deal of risk one of the benefits of the market is you look at a company like coca Cola trades a hundred million times a day literally a hundred billion times a day you don't have that with private equity so you really don't know what the value is typically there's a room of CPA's that go in and study the books and come up with an estimated value but you don't really know what the value is now the proposal that was floated earlier in the week was to not include private equity as necessarily a line item so you wouldn't see that on your menu where you would be able to participate in something called a fund of funds most people know it as a target date fund so that would allow some of these kind of it's a pre managed funds to include private equity as part of their underlying investment profile that's probably a good way to Wade into the shallow end you have to have some professional managers on there making decisions but I think private equity may be a little risky for four oh one

Why men may have more severe COVID-19 symptoms, and using bacteria to track contaminated food
"Welcome, science. I've Casper June two thousand and twenty I'm Sarah Crespi. First up this speak staff writer Meredith. Bodman discusses a link between Corona. Virus, sex hormones and male pattern baldness. It turns out. This link might be behind the higher numbers of men dying from the infection next we have researcher Jason Chen he talks about a system for tracking objects using DNA. Bar coded bacterial spores. We spray the spores on something like lettuce, and then if you ever need to know where that led us came from, perhaps if it was contaminated with dangerous bacteria, you can collect the spores and read out the bar. Now, Ashraf writer Meredith Bodman. She wrote this week in science on a potential source of the male bias. We've been seeing in severe cases of Corona. Virus even corona virus deaths. Hi Meredith Hi Sarah. How are you? I'm okay I. GonNa, Say Okay for now this has been a mysterious, but persistent skew, and the number of deaths with regards to men. How big is the spy us? Well, it's considerable on. It's consistent from the very first days that we getting reports out of Ruhan China. Men have been made sicker by covid nineteen in the died at higher rates than women. From covid nineteen at the same time, children have been largely spared that two lines up with this theory that some researchers putting forward that Andrew Johns which are male hormones may have a role to play in how badly people get sick from woven So there's this new research linking sex hormones and the severity of coronavirus. Where did this idea come from? At first blush. It really landed with a paper that was published in cell online in early March. And it designated or describe a role for a particular enzyme that is bound in cell membranes called temperatures to. And it is an enzyme that cleaves the spy protein on the virus, and in doing that it allows the virus to enter host cells, so it's important for viral entry now. A bunch of prostate cancer researchers looked at the cell pay per and said Whoa. Wait a minute. We know that protein know that protein. They knew the protein because years ago. It was described as being culprit in prostate cancer, this very same t. m., P. R. S. S. two or temperature to enzyme in a mutated form. It was discovered early in this century was responsible for about fifty percent of prostate cancers PSA. Prostate researchers were intimately familiar with this this enzyme in one of the things. Things, they knew about it was that it was controlled by male hormones. At least in the prostate gland, known as Andrew Jackson's of which testosterone as the most famous, actually increased the production of this enzyme in the prostate gland when the enzyme was in a mutated form, it causes prostate cancer, basically in simple definition, and so from that you can take away that if you have more testosterone or other androgen, you're going to have more of temptress to, and so that's kind of the thinking behind this that you might have something that makes it easier for infection to take place, absolutely more tempus to on the cell membrane more opportunities for the virus to knock an inter-. It's almost that simple. Though, of course, it's way more complicated, but basically right and there's there's some other interesting observations that a link to this in your story, and one of them out relates to male pattern baldness. How does that fit in? There's not a clear scientific explanation for why it would be that a couple of studies in Spain have observed that man with male pattern baldness seemed to be over represented in male patients who are hospitalized with covid nineteen, and that's not related to age. No, interestingly, the peak baldness decade among these Spanish patients was in the fifties. Fifties whereas male baldness, typically as most common in the eighties or even older, and there's a link between baldness and temperatures. Well, that's what's not entirely clear. What is known is that one very powerful male hormone named dihydrotestosterone or D. H. T. for short, which is a derivative of testosterone, is abundant and thought to be causative of male pattern baldness. When there's lots of it in the SCALP, it's not causative on its own. It also take some genetic predisposition had a couple of conditions, but one of them is high levels of this hormone dht, and that is. Is the hormone that returning to the prostate we know binds androgen receptor, which in turn kicks up production of T.. N., P. R. S. to compress too

"So welcome to the program and I was very impressed and well. I was very impressed with all of the fine work that was done on the dogs book that had to have been a CO author. Did some of that and I'm not saying that she didn't write a good book but I know what co-authors do I've been one and it's it's a really good book and it shows thank you so much. I really appreciate that it was. It was definitely a labor of love and it was the project that took a whole lot longer than it probably should have. But I think at the end of the day both Diana and I were real happy with the results and and as you well know I mean there's there was a lot of detail in there and we had to sort through a lot of material to you know. Try to decide what was going to be appropriate for the readers. What needed to be less out. So there was a lot of thoughts and You know hard love that went into making it what it was and we have a podcast of the interview with what's her first name. Diane I thought I think I thought it was Diana and I was afraid I would. I also thought dawn and I was afraid I was going to embarrass myself but she was telling me before we did the interview about how nervous she was and how terrible it would be to do radio and she was just great and I recommend the podcast This is a book of a rescue started. Beautiful Dalhart Texas. It's okay if you don't know that it's in the panhandle. I've been there That they started at a great school and is still going today over a decade and a half her and it's a good rescue and a good group and she was a great interview and it's a good book and Meredith helped. Write it and Meredith. You've done a number of dog an animal books. Can you tell me a little bit about that? Well it's not so many books that had done. I've done a lot of articles over the years so you know. I have a degree in journalism. As every great journalist wants to do one day is to write that perfect book. But you have to start you know in baby steps and so I started focusing on just trying to write about lot of animal health issues. I started writing about a lot of rescue groups throughout the country. That we're doing amazing things you know similar to what dogs is has accomplished. So it's been building from that and you know it takes a lot of time and dedication you had to build relationships with different editors and find contacts and yes. There are a lot of stories that are out there that can and should be told but for me. I have to write about things that I feel passionate about. And that things that you know kind of kind of speak to me on a certain level so so I'm anxious. Now that I've gotten first official book under my belt to hopefully find some other topics start working on and You know book kind of putting my focus on that over the next year or so Unfortunately with dogs the timing of dogs is released we was the book came out on March. Thirty first right in the middle of all the pandemic so we lost a lot of publicity. That was scheduled for it. So actually since then we've been spending a lot of our own time trying to promote the book through social media through word of mouth just trying to keep the book Relevant until hopefully when things get back to somewhat of normal state and bookstores start opening up again. You know maybe we'll be able to start having some book signing events and continue the publicity but right now my main focus really as as Diane's focus is just trying to keep social media you know happy and alive kind of focused on the book and making sure that You know enough folks learned about it and hopefully will help share the story of of the amazing sanctuary. Or you're welcome to share our podcast if that will help your promotional efforts because she does a great job describing the book we spent half an hour talking about it talking about the school program all of those things so I thought it was an inspiring story. I have the book sitting on top to be honest of a lizard cage sitting behind me where I know exactly where it is so but it is. It is a good book and you'll learn a lot about rescues. A heart warming story as they say in the trade and I would recommend it as good light reading a happy story. Well thank you and I think that take away from this from this whole episode of the book was really that kid can make a difference and I think a lot of times You know people underestimate what children can accomplish what they set their mind to something and you know keep in mind. These were nine and ten year old children who started this and it was their dream. It was their commitments. And you know I've been an animal lover all my life but I'm not so sure that it nine years old I would have had the dedication or commitment that this group of students did And for those of you listening who don't know about Dalhart Dalhart has awful weather Summers our terrible winters are equally terrible and yet these kids kind of put all that aside and show up every day after school on the weekends during their summer vacations just because they felt so driven to make sure that these animals for taking care of and they they gave their all in helping them find. You know a second chance at happiness and so I think you know I think Diane and I want people to realize that children do have a lot of capacity to do good given the right set of circumstances and the right mentoring mean obviously Diane and her family were wonderful role models and they were very invested in the children and I think that made a huge difference but it was still the kids you showed up every day regardless of the weather regardless of how they were feeling. And you know that's very inspirational and hopefully other children or other. Schoolteachers can see that well. You know this could happen here. You know maybe we could do something similar in our little town or you know all for the good of helping you know these poor dogs and cats who by no follow their own. You know deserve a second chance hot in the summer cold in the winter. And I'm adding this for you. Tornadoes in the middle true. That's Dalhart Texas weather. You can add that and it's a better line now. I saved that up for you because it really is. I mean Dow hearts in the panhandle. And there's a barbed wire fence to stop the tornado. That's that's all. There is up there.

"Meredith Oakes is celebrating women who rock, and she knows a thing or two about music in her own, right? She's a deejay a radio commentator, a music, journalist and a musician. So I had a good understanding of the lifestyle to grind, even if you're doing it at a very high level like say Fleetwood MAC where you're flying first class and staying the presidential suite. You're still away from home. It's tough on your body. It's a commitment. Oaks profiled fifty women from the nineteen fifties. To now committed to song and performance for her book, which is a collection of essays called rock and roll woman. Tina Turner, Janice Joplin, Gwen Stefani. And Amy wine house are just a few of the artists featured we really wanted women who made an impact on rock and roll who had rock and roll is a major part of their career either started or went back to eight or both so. Yeah. Rock and roll was the ultimate limits test, but it was difficult to just do fifty also. I looked for common threads. She says many had to fight their way into the music. Business comes to mind record labels told her you'll never sell out arena. You'll never be a star. And sure enough she did both of those things Joan Jett to every record label passed on. I love rock and roll she made her own label, and she did it herself. One of our personal favorites is blonde east Debbie Harry because so many young artists today want to work with her now says women have come far in the music industry. But they still have ways to go. I would like to see more women engineers, there's never been a woman who won a Grammy for best album outside of classical music. Never not even one. So more tech women in tech more women road as more women turning the knobs and a studio. On the women's watch on Laurie Kirby..
