"Iona Presley you come in who are who are now just of our government and actually legislating change as leaders in our country? How do they get their seat at the table They did it through a similar kind of level personal sacrifice and dedication that you know they suffer just took of a really great. Individual sacrifice that it takes to run for office, and so as we think again to what information can be drawn from the suffragettes women today. Most, often I'm talking to young women who are considering running for office. They'll say, well, you know I don't really see putting my family through that or it's really hard or I don't want to be in kind of the nastiness of politics, and there's a certain aspects of really just being willing to be uncomfortable for a greater cause Matt something that I was really inspired by in learning about the is history and willing to make some kind of personal sacrifices myself and pursuing this greater aims and I think as we get more women represented in Congress, we will see the follow on changes to policy issues that aren't only related to women, but will help all society APP.

"The toll free number and folks are more than welcome to check in with us for the next few minutes anyway. Then we're going to start another segment and set of interviews it around Ten. Fifteen here on the Graham show. All about the hundredth anniversary of women's suffrage in the United States of America, I. I've been reading up a little bit of on this on the savage suffrage movement. and. You know the thing I it keeps striking me is is that it's kind of shocking that for the first one, hundred and fifty years of our of our. Nation's existence we. Did. Not. Have Women didn't have the right to vote 'em sort of. That sort of strikes me as what? Why Is it Dan for new fan? We have. Yes. Hello. Good Morning Dan. Hi. You know. With just in response to the folks that get so mad about. These flags and signs saying black lives matter. My question is, do they really believe that we have given black lives? Equal Value Up till now. I mean there's never been any question in this country white lives matter you know never the day the White Man's sit on Chore His Life Mattered. In. A little bit later on like a few hundred years his women partners started the matter a little bit. You know and not until not until yet at black lines really mattered and I think the stats bear that out. You know the numbers of blacks killed by cops the number of blacks and Carson did number blacks stopped you know we stop we more black motorist in Vermont than white motorists and yet the percentage of those black motorists that have contraband or you know should have been stopped is much lower than the the rate on the weight drivers so. Black lighters have not mattered in this country. And so this is a statement saying we need to equalize the playing field and so for white people to somehow take offence at this, I just. I find that blows my mind and I just can't find that to be a legitimate legitimate respond. Well I I hear what you're coming from Dan I think that the It's a nice sentiment. Say All lives matter? I don't really object all all that unless unless it's being expressed as some way to diminish or negate the statement that black lives matter and the and the and they sort of newness and freshness. So that statement it's only come out really in the past. Few years and. and so if you're if you're trying to diminish that statement, the black lives matter by saying, Hey. Yeah. But all all lives matter. Then I think the I mean you really have to look at the motivation of the of the person. Using the using the slogan but. Because obviously, all lives. Include has sort of logical subset include black lives. So when you say all lives matter, you could make an argument that yeah I I'm I'm including black because black labs obviously are included in all lives but I think. The way here's a way it breaks for me. I mentioned this a while ago I think it bears repeating, which is that spent a long time in in the news business and and Sometimes writing headlines as part of my work. And I never wrote a headline said Don. Expected tomorrow because that really wasn't news. And the The thing here is that if you say all lives matter well, let's pretty obvious. Everybody understands that that's not really news either the news unfortunately to some people is that black lives matter and in particular. And So that's why that is getting a big mentioned today's because there's A. Not. Everyone shares that understanding that black lives are among all the lives that matter. All lives matter was the slogan that was chosen to really hammer home that black lives in my life. That would be one thing but unfortunately, all lines matter which agree it's a wonderful settlement. We we should all agree with that. I think we do. But right now It's it's almost code for saying we don't we're not really down with the idea that black lives matter. So unfortunately because of the context and and the societal sort of pressure right now, we have to take a what should be perfectly denied wonderful statement at all as matter and conceptualize it and say well. Yes. That's true. Technically. But in this particular time and space that is being used as a code to try to denigrate idea that black lives have not mattered and our it's high pastime that the new matter. All Right Dan. Well, thank you for the call I. Appreciate you checking in with us. Of Family Stone. would be fitting intro to the next segment of our program today. This month marks the th anniversary of the effective date of the nineteenth amendment to the US Constitution saying that women would have the right to vote. August. Twenty six exact date. It's an especially exciting moment for members of my extended family. My family's my father's aunt betty swing later known by her married name Betty Gram swing was one of the leading and most militant activists in the fight to pass women's suffrage. We have three of her descendants with us. This morning to talk about all that and I wanNA. Welcome. Pamela. Swing resident scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center Brandeis University. Outside Boston. Her daughter. Anna plotkin swing is. A great granddaughter Betty Swing. She's currently a Masters Student at Smith College School for social work. In Northampton Massachusetts. Danielle Graham is my niece in San Francisco area she is with. Founders. Pledge, which is a philanthropic philanthropic group. Three of you welcome very much. Welcome to the show and thank you very much for joining me. Start our discussion. With, Pam, swing who's done quite extensive research into the life of Betty gram swing. One of the as I mentioned leading suffragettes What have you found out about betty gram swing what motivated her to get involved in the suffragette movement? So she. Grew up in a family actually that Advocated for woman rights she and her sisters would go to suffrage meetings. HOW IN PORTLAND? Oregon. but for a long time, she wasn't really ready to commit herself to the movement. it took Alice Paul's National Woman's Party with their activist approach to picketing the White House and on trying to really use some more militant action that took for betty to finally get involved and she and her younger sister Alice. Nineteen seventeen hopped on a train from New York City Rebecca was actually in musicals on Broadway they have betrayed winton toying along picket line on November tenth nineteen seventeen, and that was the start of her getting into the suburbs movement and she never looked back. While and That demonstration in November of one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventeen. If I recall reading that led to a series of arrests, including of, of Betty Alison they were set to. A work camp in Virginia is that right? That's what there were sent to the. workhouse where unbeknown to them or there was thirty two of them ended up the workhouse and the Superintendent Whittaker. Was Tired of having suffered just sent there and he hired a bunch of men to beat them up. You can look it up online. It was called the night of terror and was truly awful women were. Tossed into jail cells and hit their head, and we came unconscious and one of them had a heart attack and betty analysis actually escaped being harmed, but they were very much there and then they all went on an eight hunger strike. So very dramatic way for Betty and allies to join the suffrage movement. Yeah that was a sort of a baptism by fire or something. Pretty pretty incredible. And and. Betty stayed involved in these in these efforts. longer Alliston Alliston. Develop some health problems I guess as a result of some of the. Some of the things that happened. Very, Nick. During the hunger strike and I think she decided that this wasn't her she instead went into journalism and with an activist in that way on Betty became a national organizer for hours pause. Party National Woman's Party and she was actually instrumental in getting some of the states to ratify the amendment and neither the lesser known stories she was sent to New Jersey. Fierce opposition against the amendment because jumping ahead now to. Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, one hundred years ago right now and she managed to get passed by one vote. similarly, in West Virginia she and some other suffer just for their and they needed one more vote and the state legislator that agreed vote to be that one vote within California and they chartered a train for him that came across the country headed towards West Virginia and people would get up in the middle of the night and wave at the train as it passed their stations because the newspapers were covering this whole. Thing that was happening and they met him at the station and lift off to the State House so that they could get the vote passed there too. So. There's a lot of stories about what he did in the suffered..

"Debates about law enforcement standards, and so on around the State House over the years, and so I just. Was Curious to get. The chiefs thoughts on, and I'm always glad to get yours to Michael. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it. chief fakeness. Wondering your Your thoughts about This push that we've were hearing about now in some places around the country. People so upset with their local police departments. They want you know you see signs around and say De Fund. The police or in Minneapolis is I guess the majority veto proof majority of the city council saying they want to. Disband, the police department and replace it with some other system of a public safety What do you make of all that? Well it comes back to down to You know. What is in trust and legitimacy of the police department has seen by the public that you know in that jurisdiction. Sometimes we know historically half. Has Happened a couple of places the consolidation it's financial reasons or the corruption problems with the police department is so bad that you kind of have to start from the ground up. So I think it's it's something that. I think for communities that have a strong relationship with the police. And things are going well, and their expectations are being met. Problem, but other places where there are really. Significant problems what it's race, relations or perceived were Neil corruption, or just just bad practice. Many cities are under. Penalty penalties entries. Civil rights by historic civil rights, violations and allegations. So it's going to be a community, but I think if we look at big picture systematic change At the state level, and maybe the national level again, if we we start developing clarity and uniformity me of expectations, it's going to go a long way to improve how communities and states Vermont. Is Is there much I and should there be more You talked about national sort of Input into the police, training and conduct, and so on, and is occasionally when I, especially when when issues of policing kind of come to the fore in in the news. You'll see a story pop up. That says and I think that's all in last week. That said for instance in Norway. The police have not killed anyone for For, Ten year more than ten years or something like that other times. You know it's a profile of of how How police in in Britain are. Trained to respond to. A person who is out of control or whatever? I is there is there much opportunity for for international training? Well because they don't have our constitution or and there's so somebody other issues such as gun culture the good, the good parts and the bad parts And that? We have had look at how what are the? What are we face with? That are in the united. States so I'm always cautious. Looking at Inter the international community for very solutions we always keep an open mind should be. We should keep an open mind. but again A lot of this is. we do better in terms of tracking. USA Force tracking. You. Know misconduct Those kinds of things I didn't all again. It goes back to training and also making sure that you know the level of. What we're doing and. Communities is these. Staff community expectations. Did want to get a listener a listener question by email just in the last couple of minutes here I. I almost forgot I wanted to ask this one. This is for a Rama from Williamstown. He says if I see a police officer in or out of uniform trucking, someone to death. Can I? As a non police individual intervene to stop a murder. I'm not going to give guidance on that, but do whatever is of. He feels appropriate. Okay and lastly We had a question yesterday about filming. can someone if standing at a safe distance filming encounter between a police officer and and citizen. Athlete protected conduct And we are on the open and we are. Public Servants and and absolutely that is the only time we'd say. Ask somebody you know if they were undercover officers that weren't covered him with my asthma buddy hey. he cleans not hostess or something just because of that reason, but that's responsibility, not theirs. Eddie rights to to to documents however our performance in the field. Okay? She's Tony. Fingers I really appreciate you taking these questions. I I can't say all of them have been easy, but and I I can't say your entire career has been easy, but it's been a by all accounts, an honorable one and I congratulate you on your retirement. Thank you so much for joining me this morning. chief Tony Fakers of the. Police has been my guess. Thanks again chief.

"I have all condemned in the strongest terms and my part of the country the police chief in Morrisville and stow and the Sheriff Loyal County Roger Mark who have all at issued a joint statement condemning this at. Saying this is no way to run a police department. This is no way to behave and you know when when things reached that level when the professionals in the field of endemic police action in Minneapolis gotta say Gee. You know. It's certainly got their attention. And so I. I was just going to say I. I I think I think there's really crucial reason. It's gotten the attention of of police leaders. You know many many of whom are thoughtful people. They have a lot of integrity. They WanNa do the right thing they want their. People their leading. You know they're. They're off line officers out there doing the right thing because they understand that that Policing not an easy thing, and it's it's a part of society that is You know some some people regarded as a necessary evil. Other people just say it's you know it's part of. It's sort of weird. Society has to get tough with itself sometimes. Okay, so it. It's not going to be an easy thing, but then, but then you have to do it right, and you have to be seen doing it right. I think that's they're they're they're? They're really crucial. What's what's at stake for a lot of for a lot of the FO? The police leaders who have spoken out here is that they want to. They want people to understand that as tough as as it as it is sometimes, it needs to be the they are trying to do. They're trying to behave right and correctly and and and you know something like a George Floyd's. Floyd's murder and Briana Taylor's murder and etc are are singles that singles to people that they are not doing it right, and and that's just it's really I mean he goes beyond bad PR. It goes right to the core of the mission and the core of the relationship between police in our largest society, and now you see you know lots of cities and around the country. Starting to question including Minneapolis. Do, we need a police department we need or do we need a whole different kind of an approach to public safety in which you know, we disband our police departments, or de-fund our police departments, and and and build something else in their place to try to keep people safe I. You know I think there's still a lot of questions about what that would look like, but you know so. This is This is a top to bottom shakeup here. Really, that's happening I'd say when you. Yeah well. Let's take a look. You know These the problems that we have today are different than we had. When the police went. Police departments were formed. you know today the the issues, the police face the diction mental health. People without enough food, that or homeless people. you know all these things are are social issues. They're not really issues of public safety as much as they are society, breaking down and and so you know. I got I learned this from another person. If if you took all the furniture out of your office building and put it in the parking lot. Would you put any of it backward was. because. Thanks. Things have changed right I. Mean Yeah Things. Things are different. You know different technology different job functions from when you when you set up the office until you know, here's an opportunity to change how you do it, so Austin Texas for instance when you call nine one one. they ask you if you want police, fire or mental health. In Eugene Oregon they send a medic and a crisis worker to go on emergency calls. Because so often you know there's there may be physical damage, or there may be you know something that really is the ability of a peace officer to deal effectively with I mean you can't. It's hard to have a police officer was a social worker counselor a therapist. Minister you know. Name the roles. They're all wrapped up want. It it really is a I mean I I don't think. It's not a job for everybody, but actually let me ask you about that because there's this reputation out there, and maybe you know to some degree deserve that police departments in historically have attracted people who who did have an authoritarian streak or did did feel like they could. They could be in a role of of basically going out and and using force on people, because they're big and strong or something, and and. and now there's. You know people are starting to pause about that and say you know maybe maybe that that idea of just you know route brute force power. Sometimes violence in it'd be half of the of the state of the city, or whatever it is really not the right, even attitudinal approach What do you think about the about that as a? As a feature here, or is it a bug, or is it something? That is to present needs to needs to be? Reduced. Cops for almost fifty years, there are most police officers. Very solid. Some are not. And it's pretty clear that some are not but to get rid of them as the next to impossible. You know a lot of police. Officers of police forces are unionized and so they. have to go through the shop steward to get a police officer and deal with discipline and and problems The The There's the. Police also need to be part of a community that they police. they cannot be apart from it. That has happened. There's a division now. This sort of a fortress mentality, a lot of police departments that they are in the forward, and they're defending you know. Society from. What what is going on, but the society is their community. You, know and you can't. You can't have an against them kind of mentality and the effective as a police officer as police force in the long run. Can Win. The battle right now today with as you drive the protesters off the streets and banged now. But the, but but you're. Not GonNa win. You know. People. People will put up with that. So you know, the I think we need better hiring practices. We need better recruiting. We need better understanding of what police officers role should be. We need to get the police some help on areas where they are not strong and and you know. Make it possible to deal with the problems effectively, probably than just force. And you know they're. Thinking about this the New York City's police budget is six billion dollars. Los Angeles police budget two billion dollars a year. How could you use that? Money took all the furniture out of the building. Put it. differently. It's A. It's a really It's a it's a really good question and actually that metaphor. Find. Just kind of interesting and maybe applicable, even more broadly than to issues of of the. Police, and and I'll just have a few minutes to go here Tom Kearney, of the stoudt reporter and and I wanna I wanna try to use that same metaphor for. Some what we were hearing out there about the corona virus outbreak the accompanying. Economic crash which has occurred. You know I..

"Main They're seeing a lot of that. A cold leader. I don't know if you saw the story that a cold leader Out there that was pinned down in that area a couple of weeks ago and his followers came in and it seems like it's infected the all the locals in that area It's just it's just crazy times right now especially in Maine. Apparently so look for that story to bubble up It's it's been nuts. There's a a Russian plants Robinson in that area too and it really shocked me to the core. Actually it's terrifying while okay well Mike thanks for the call. Stay healthy and be in touch rusty. Do we joins us on the phone. Good morning rusty. Hey Dave thanks for hanging around me on and Yeah I get around. People say how you know how you doing well. It has affected my business but it has not affected my life because I make that pretty quiet liver anyway. There are people out there who it is affecting their life. And and it's it's a tough one however I do have one specific question. You had a woman some sort of professional on about fifteen minutes ago also the guy from Maine good guy. They're they're saying that there's a thing in their voice here. You had a great question to the lady. You said some paraphrasing is there any sense of positive feeling down going on? And she's like no because the the numbers are just. GonNa rise now my question to you know what the answer this but I'm asking you it is that just the the is it. Being spread the same. Your question was kind of like is the spread increasing or just the numbers because of the tests. And you know the people that have it the people that showed that they have it in. Maine yesterday have had it days. Maybe weeks so you just didn't exist. We have to know this all exist. This future needs future. Numbers are not necessarily a clue that that is just spreading like wildfire fire. Is that somewhere near close and all hang on up and I listen to you guys. All right I appreciate it rusty. Thank you so much Yeah I I think I think the question. That rusty dewees asks is is Are we seeing greater spread or are we seeing more tests Just showing where the where the disease actually has been existing maybe for some period of days or even weeks and these are epidemiological questions. Which I just. I don't have the the data in front of me to even try to answer. I'm sure that There are Epidemiologists out there who are following This these questions pretty closely And are are you know the one one place that is worth checking out for folks On a on a daily basis.

I believe we have a caller Checking in with US bill from Wakefield. Good Morning Bill. Good Morning Dave. Yesterday when you were talking with Art You had mentioned something with regard to Liquor store and Montpellier closing This morning I got From life reliable source that up the warehouse actually is either closed or is closing. So there's GonNa be no more deliveries to the stores state liquor Warehouse Yeah. I had not heard that actually but I it's probably worth checking out. I'll I'll see if I could find that out for sure in the next I mean You know this is actually kind of an interesting question. Bill because obviously They are they. They deal in product Which is You like to think with not maybe the most crucial thing that That we we we make in consumers as society On the other hand a lot and awful lot of people would miss The ability of alcoholic beverages if that in fact comes to be comes to be comes to pass. What do you? What do you think there's a state of a duty to keep this operation going? Well you know I. I really wonder you know this. Is You know. This is a very reliable source I got from so I I'm pretty sure it's true But I wonder what the rationale is. Because you know it's people are going to you know we've got three states. Canada's not available anymore but we've got three states around us so somebody's you know we're all close to borders going reasonably but people would normally shop there and you know Waterbury or here here on Will you know? Are you know if they are desperate? They're going to get in their cars. Maybe do a little bit of Social crowding by car pooling and taken off for New Hampshire. Or you know people south heading you know that are closer to a place in Massachusetts will go across that border and so So on the one hand you're increasing their exposure because they're going to go to more crowded places And you're also You know if you're also going to have them burning a lot of gas doing it so so you wonder what could be the benefit or the reason you know. Maybe it's a supply problem but I you know but What would be the reason behind? But what possible benefit would justify Increasing risking carbon footprint. I I get I. I understand where you're where you're coming from on this bill. I think he's very very good questions. And I mean I guess one corollary question is I mean. Let's assume for the moment that it folks You know suddenly there's a lawful lot of Vermont plates in the parking lot outside the the New Hampshire state liquor store just over the bridge there and West Levin And but that assumes that New Hampshire is keeping its liquor stores open. Well that's right. That's an awfully big business in New Hampshire. That would take that's You know it's it you know I it's staggering. How how big IT Scott? And they've expanded it you know. I don't I mean I frankly. B B Kind of shocking. I think to you into me if New Hampshire suddenly announced. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA shut down our state liquor stores for some period of time And and You know slightly. Maybe slightly more shocking than the idea of Vermont. Doing that the But but again you know I guess nothing is impossible in at this point. I mean who knows what the what the what the plan is. So I I I I I suppose that People are People are going to. I don't know what start making bathtub gin again like they did. During prohibition or you know what the Heck I this is. This is a this is something that I that I think. And maybe maybe there'll be some people out there who are going to end up saying themselves That they're habits of Consumer Alcoholic Beverages. They're going to have to be curtailed for a bit and Who knows maybe? There's maybe there's an upside their health wiser just Etcetera so But you know you know at the same time. There's a Lotta people who can't and won't You know another thing that's going on that I'm seeing a lot. You know a lot of stuff in social media around here anyway is You know they're in a lot of people. Obviously feeling very strongly about it is there are people that are you know are wanting to Discourage or even outright ban out of state second homeowners from coming to their to their homes here. Yeah Yeah and it kind of you know on the extreme what it sort of brought to mind after a long. You know several days of hearing about this stuff is it. Kind of reminds me of the the Back in the in the fifties when people were building fallout shelters and stocking men One of the key items. That people were talking about having in their fallout shelters was a gun so they could shoot their neighbors if they were trying to break in. Yeah I you know. I hope that We don't we. Don't see an uptick in that kind of behavior at each juncture in the near future on this whole thing but I have seen I think. Vcd are actually had a story in the last couple of days. Indicating that sales of firearms and ammunition are spiking Out there and so That is You know something something which I think you know people Obviously let's all keep a cool head here folks and and just make sure that It's a time for. It's time for increasing increasing compassion and kindness and the virtues We think of as really being the the the salves for our community and not a time for increasing paranoia and violent thoughts etc. So let's let's stay on the right track here folks so bill. I gotta I gotTa jump but thank you very much for the call and stay in touch. Let's see I think we have another Caller on the show. Bruce messes with us. Good Morning Bruce. Hey Dave how are you? I'm doing okay. How are you? Could you taking care of yourself? Oh yeah okay okay I worry about you. Worry about myself to Well I if you're taking care of yourself. Yeah well our daughter. Our oldest daughter. Who's at Harvard School of Public Health is Lecturing US constantly at one. Vignette about her. In in your people were talking about millennials. Not taking this seriously My three kids are all They're aging millennials. They're you know. Sort of on the cusp of the early. You know Cold War But my daughter lives in the Boston area. She has a housemate around her age. She was sheltering in place away from Harvard because Harvard was closed Shutting down but her housemate would keep going out take his girlfriend to dinner to the bars and all this stuff and that would reset my daughter's clock because she wanted to come up here and be with us because for the long term so she's Now sheltering in place in Vermont We had a meeting yesterday and She sent us a picture today. Over workstation she got A modem she got a connection friends of ours have allowed her to stay in their farmhouse while they're elsewhere and You see the most magnificent view from their kitchen window and I heard a little workstation defunct but you know when we. I don't know what's going to happen with this thing. I don't think anybody does but one of the big things that needs to come out of it is humility. And that's certainly not characteristic of our political class whether you're Republican Democrat or independent and sometimes it's not even Characteristic of our scientific class but I think we have to begin to be look seriously at ourselves as part of a culture and things like this and have some humility and when we're dealing with how to go forward no listen to scientists and politicians. Let's bring in the the cultural geographers the anthropologists. This story ends the sociologist Artists Theologians all these academic disciplines dead get Sorta pooh-poohed today as we're trying to concentrate on steam or whatever they call it or stem science technology engineering and mathematics. There's there's a role for this kind of reflection and and I I hope will turn in that direction going forward. Well I bruce. Excellent thoughts as usual and I hope you You and yours Stay healthy and and are able to wetter all of this As well as the community large. Let's let's all hanging there to get folks so thanks. Vermont. Living Room right now so I guess so. Thank all Bruce. Let's go let's go to. Let's go to Bob in Charlotte. Good Morning Bob Morning Dave. How are you doing? Well how are you? I'm doing well I just you know wanted to kind of point out one thing that I mean Everybody he's being you know kind of up ended by this whole virus but I one thing that bothers me is That were still allowed to move about The country and within cities on mass transportation trains airplanes and subways. Museum that to me makes you know it kind of doesn't make any sense to allow that to happen when we're kind of Closing the doors on a lot of the smaller businesses that we can have a direct impact with yet. We're still allowing you know after nine eleven. No airplane flew. They just wrecked airplanes down and to me. If you know if you really want to end this you need to stop not you but we need to stop allowing People making it convenient for people to to sit next to each other and start spreading this. This is what's GonNa continue the the problem. The spread of this disease is Putting everybody in tight confined spaces like that. And you know if you're GONNA if you really want to put an end to it and the spread you really need to to explore all avenues of transmission. Not only the convenient ones that you can. You can do immediately And and that's just kind of one one one of my points on on our were not really taking it as serious as we should if we really want to put an end to it all right. Thank you for the call Bob. I appreciate it. Interesting thought Let's go to. Let's go to jail and Burlington Dale. Yes good morning Dave how you doing. I'm doing well. How are you good? Thanks good I just wanted to put out a little. Bit of a consumer alert Concerning situation that we're in it kind of goes back to something that you said in the first half hour of the program kind of encouraging people to support local businesses by going out maybe buying gift cards now etc. I'd be very leary about purchasing gift cards from anybody right now because we don't know how many businesses are actually going to survive..

"The worst is still yet to come that I don't like hearing that. I suspect you're about though and we do have to face reality here after all what I I I I also wonder you know. Eventually one hopes one thinks that That we will somehow get over this This this problem it and that there will be a a moment when the country says we have survived. You know those of us obviously still alive are going to continue on into whatever future. The human race has on this planet And I'm I'm I'm wondering. Is Anybody talking about kind of What the criteria are you what what will need to be established for that day when the bells start ringing or whatever star rating as in as in celebrating that it's over. Oh yeah well Yeah I think I think it's going to be. We've seen it start to happen. I think South Korea's been a wonderful example not a lot of people Public Health officials point to as a once he starts being you know the curve downwards rather than upward lasting spike but more of a dove tailing in the number of cases and how they're being able to treat patients and help them recover. We'll start to that time. I think that there may not be a victory day. I know a lot of people. The president himself is calling this a war. A war against an invisible enemy. I've seen other outlets this world. Worst C- Which is what it other people within the health community. Do you think it's fighting a war right now against this disease but unlike normal war where you have a day and it's a ceasefire the war is over. This is going to be more of a gradual Gradual victory from from my conversations. At least that will start to see a downturn in the number of cases and we'll start to see a rise and people who recovering and being treated properly for that and overtime start reintroducing people back into normal life leaving their home gathering when more than ten people at once All of those sorts of things. I don't think it'll be an immediate victory but something bad more gradual already will elena. Trina axios I really appreciate you joining me this morning. Lots of interesting perspective and insight as always and. Let's talk soon. Thank you so much. Having me stay healthy. Yep WE'RE GONNA go to Pretty soon to a bottom of the hour break for some.

"Could and and I think that's an important Important factor Talk to me about people working in healthcare. Because I mean obviously you folks around the front line and and There's GonNa be some emotional impact here. Are we seeing increasing instances? I don't know of anxiety and depression among healthcare workers and and and how you're talking to each other. That's a great question. This is a stressful time. You know I think partly. It's just really busy as we get ready to to deal with You know a number of people who are sick that we haven't seen before and so that's that's not only just a lot of work but also I think Distressing for for everybody in town and you know but healthcare workers Show up with emission every day and this caused strongly. You know we we WANNA WE WANNA SAVE IS WE WANNA make people suffer less and so You know this is this kind of call to action is something that also is You know speaks to the deepest part of us. I think the the key thing we're going to have to work on is also taking care of ourself. I'm seeing the people who are really leading this effort and You know taking care of our patients taking care of the people who might have it getting ready working really long hours under high stress conditions and we know this is not a sprint. It's a marathon and so we're going to have to make sure that we take care of each other as a community and I think there are lots of ways we do that. You know partly just being really clear about what the mission is and he knowing that what you do make a difference hearing the word thank you. I think From a special colleague from a patient he had helped his really important and I think most importantly of all I think seeing somebody Walk out of the hospital. Who who was Second feeling miserable to live another day to live another number decades. That's that's the ultimate satisfaction.

Wd We're back into our second hour on this Thursday morning march the nineteenth two thousand and twenty here in the age of Colorado Virus One rather striking a news release. I saw in the last day or two had to do with the University of Vermont Medical Center Uvm Health Network They are obviously the biggie player in Vermont's healthcare seeing these days and they announced I believe it was Tuesday afternoon that They wanted it to Cut Back on all non essential healthcare encounters so things like Surgeries that people had been planning But we're not considered You know Necessary for the preservation of of life or Would not be Would not lead to immediate deterioration of a patient's condition if that the surgery were put off for a while. I'm sure this better terminology to describe all this which we can get from Dr Timothy Lahey who is with the University of Vermont Medical Center. And he's on the phone with us this morning. Dr Lee. Thanks so much for joining me morning. So how would you describe? The situation went missing some terminology here. What what's the? What's the best way to describe this to the public? Yeah and this is An all hands on deck moment Were getting ready for to handle care needs of our population Based on the stories we're hearing from Seattle and from Italy and one of the things we are ready to handle if it happens is a big influx of patients endure hostels into our clinics. Who really need Care and to make sure that we have staff available and space in our hospital to deal with it and clinicians who are not doing usual care but actually ready to help out where Getting rid of non essential things anything that we can defer for a few months. We're really there to help out. And so this this effort is all about freeing up space to do the care. That really is life. Saving the other piece of course is that everybody's been hearing out social distancing. You know making sure that we're all coming together in crowded spaces and we wanna make sure that Uvm health network is is playing. Its part by only having people come here if they absolutely have to In fact I'm I'm I was just talking with a friend of mine and I think in the last couple of days who was On the phone with with her Her doctor and fairly lengthy conversation And I was that it was It was a doctor's appointment was a doctor's appointment by phone which is not the obviously not the way people normally picture just that basic occurrence. That is a part of daily life. In the regular world. We're now It sounds like a large percentage of the I mean speaking of social distancing large percent of the of the What had been scheduled as doctors appointments in Your Network? Right now are occurring by phone. Is that right? Yeah that's right so My clinic went through for example and looked at the list of patients who I was scheduled to see in the coming weeks and months and said look. We know you're GONNA be busy in the hostile and getting ready for covet. So who could we see just a few months later? Who's really stable and doing well? And there's no urgency to seeing them And so we Have rescheduled those people. And then for the folks who need to be seen. There's this question of do they absolutely have to come into the hospital and be in the same room with me. Some do and we're going to see them But for others really. It's a matter of having a good conversation. Just taking a look at them and making sure they're okay and so I have a couple of video Appointment scheduled for next week. Yeah that that is now by video. Appointments Are People. What are you using using zoom or skype? Or what's the what's the what's the technique here is in process but the latest. I heard in him. I see okay and and that's That is something that you know advertisers regularly. Wd In fact in the and it is a fairly simple thing for. I haven't used it myself but what understand people can log on and and Download You know the from the site there and and get connected and be able to basically do a one on one video conference And and Are as a physician talk to me about the sort of Assessment skills I mean. Obviously you'RE GONNA be U You might miss some stuff You know if the camera is focused on the person's face you might miss the hand tremor or something but I mean talk to me about the challenges there and and how close you can get to a to what you feel adequate assessment of a patient. It's a great question and I think we'll probably learn a lot through the Fortunately this isn't the first time that we had to do it. There are Working models that people have already tried you know for areas where Urgent Stroke Care. For instance isn't available. There already have been stroke teams at different hostels around the country providing video neurological exams oftentimes with a helper Present and then also there are organizations that have been doing video. Primary Care visits or video home checks and so they've they've worked out some of the tricks And I suspect we'll learn more so you can imagine you can have a good conversation with somebody and do some education and touch base about symptoms and adjusts doses of medicines and response to that You can make arrangements for somebody to get labs or get an x Ray And some parts of the physical examination you could do just threw a video you know I might be able to look at a rash for instance and then they're going to be other times for sure where we really can't tell with How to good old fashioned clinical examination hands on the belly or feeling for the lymph nodes in the neck and in which case will have to have an in person visit. Yea In in terms of decision making process there. I can imagine a situation where a patient might think I mean let. Let's imagine you have a patient who has been experiencing some pretty severe back pain and was actually maybe had some was getting excuse. Me Physical therapy and And was was now in in the sort of pre surgical frame of mind or whatever thinking that And maybe even have to have a surgery scheduled in the next couple of months and In the in the patient saying you know I'm this back. Pain is killing me and And I'm really I feel like I'm in some trouble here now. The now the healthcare system is telling me I'M GONNA have to wait until maybe the fall or something. How do you negotiate that? Is there any appeal process for the patient? What's what's the deal there. Yeah I can give you a sense of what this looks like behind the scenes So fortunately That while the US surgeon general recommended that all hospitals do this. The American College of Surgeons put out an example of a really useful Guidance document that is the kind of thing that can help these decisions so it provides advice on how to prioritize certain surgeries. Imagine if somebody somebody's life is in danger right now and they need to have surgery done of course that needs to be prioritized. And then you can imagine that next tier of people would be somebody who's got a really serious illness that that could progress in some dangerous way after surgery wasn't done you know. Maybe they have a a quick moving cancer that you know. It's not an emergency today. That's life threatening. But there is some some sense of urgency to it so they would be prioritized and then of course at the other end of the spectrum is going to be something where you know. Somebody's had a condition for many years and and the decision had been made to move forward. You know maybe a a joint was going to be Placed in their knee to make it so they can walk a little bit faster. But you know it could be done now. Could be done in six months and so that would be the kind of thing that might be a little bit lower on the priority list You can imagine that these guidelines only take you so far and so of course they're gonna be the specific details of of that person's history and the exact procedure that was planned so in addition we have Experts specialists Uvm who go through the specific list of surgeries and say okay In general this was gonna be this level of priority. Let's learn about Mrs Jones in particular and get a sense of. Is there something about her story? That makes makes it makes us need to prioritize a little bit higher because of some special fact. So this really careful Process of figuring out who who needs it the most and then The patients whose surgeries needs to be rescheduled get Notified those who don't Continue to come into their their appointment and I can imagine that they're probably GonNa be people who are who are frustrated and Kinda like man. I've been waiting for this forever and I really need it and and and I think it is going to be one of those things where an upside of the covet up democ is going to be that we all pull together as a community and some of the divisiveness that political atmosphere that has been distressing to a lot of us goes away and we say you know what we are a community that takes care of each other. Sometimes that requires sacrifice. But we're all in it together and we'll get through this. Yeah that that that would be That would be a Salutory result from from all of this experience. We're going through as a society. It's kind of amazing when when we face something like this I guess. Everyone is equal in the face. Corona virus you no matter what whether you are On which the growing income divide you are or whatever. So that's right for minors stuff you know. We're not just strangers on twitter where we're neighbors and about each other and that's think that's a more That's the life I wanNA lead and not kind of Be pointing fingers at each other and yelling. I WANNA be Rising up and solidarity and taking care of each other great thought Doctor I I do WanNa just a as another example. I think this might be clear to folks. I use the back surgery thing a moment ago but I've known people in my life. I mean my my dad went through a period. You know back I probably in his sixties or something when he was on the cusp for awhile of having a knee replacement right and And then the question is always going to go ahead and do this. I'M GONNA be laid up for a while from the surgery. And and how bad am I going to let my sore knee yet before I do the knee replacement and and all of this kind of stuff you know there? There's a lot of A lot of kind of You know optional nature of it all the way through really It sounds like it. Sounds like the the these these folks are who are out there and that kind of the place when world of considering it Planning it thinking about it. Whatever these are the people who are probably going to be Mo- most assuredly lower on the on the priority list here aren't they you know maybe not specifically are especially so that. I think you're right that there is that category of people who have sort of a slow moving medical condition. That's really bothersome. And it makes them her or or You know otherwise. There's a real obstacle just you know moving around and having a good day. The challenge here is that they want to get help. Their doctor wants to help them. And we know we'll get there you know this is We got really exciting. News Out of China overnight where they had zero new cases. And so it's you know we'll get to the other side of this crazy epidemic and so hopefully it's just A. We'll hit the pause button for the things that we possibly can for a little bit knowing that we're going to get back to it and get back to life as usual and healthcare as usual and in the meantime those video visits that you mission and other contacts with You know your doctors are away to sort of get some symptom relief in the meantime you know. Certainly if there's a way for us to make the medicines a little bit A little bit optimized so that you can kind of hold on until the rescheduled surgery happened than those options are are happening. Yeah that's I guess. If you're a physician you are. And you're looking at the patient via zoom or or whatever in Beijing. Say Yeah my knees really hurting In it I mean there..

Yesterday of businesses that are Remaining open in In my ear and those which have decided to close a little while. And what do you? What's the general mood out? There as you talked to local business people here in the capital. What are the what are what are folks telling you? A business owner definitely geared. They're worried about what the future looks. Like you know. These are not massive corporations. These are your friends. Your neighbors who are owning these. You know independently owned businesses downtown and They're they're really worried about how they're going to get through this and and they need the community to rally around them right now. And what should that look like? I mean what if you were going to. You know if some neighbor of yours came and said Dan what can I do to contribute to You know make this work and help. People Continue You know alleviate some of these fears etc. What should people be thinking about doing Well first of all Continuing to the court those businesses that are still open for takeout or for deliberate or You know practicing. You're good social distancing but getting a pickup orders from the stories that are still open downtown on pretty much every business is allowing you to call it ahead and calling your order. And they're happy to either. Bring it out to your car for you so I encourage people to do that. The other thing we're really trying to do is buy gift cards now That you can use later because businesses really need the cash flow so that they can make their ramp payments and their next payroll payments and that tax payments and everything. That's not going to go away. I get because they're not getting any money in the door. And the these these gift cards I gather some of must be newly specially printed up because this is not something that you know has been routine that a part of most people's lives in my -puter I mean you think.
Economists Say Forgiving Student Debt Would Boost Economy
"Let's come back to the United States now where presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are proposing student loan forgiveness plans warrants plan would forgive up to fifty thousand dollars for most people and Sanders would go further so suppose that happened what would suddenly freeing millions of Americans from student debt mean for the economy NPR's Chris Arnold reports an entire generation of Americans is making major life decisions differently because of student loans whether and when to buy a house the words start a family children it's not about if you wanna I'm it's about can you afford I'm Laura green would work for the state education agency in Montpelier Vermont well I make sixty three thousand dollars and thirty years old and I mean I probably a better salary than a lot of my peers but between her college and grad school agree with those ninety six thousand dollars in student loans and she says that's got her and her partner feeling kind of frozen yeah it's always were interested in having kids but just cost of living and all our other bells and then the student loans is just like the final straw so if people like green would suddenly had this mill stone of debt lifted from their necks it stands to reason that that would unleash pent up desires and spending that would be good for the economy a lot more people would probably have kids words start businesses serve by houses in the short term it's very positive for the housing market Lawrence Yun is the national association of realtors chief economist he says his group survey showed that student data is people delaying homeownership by five to seven years he's not endorsing any particular plan but he estimates that broad loan forgiveness would push up the number of home sales quite a bit home sales cook BSA three hundred thousand high your annually if people were not settle what law each student that of boost to the housing sector as well as to the economy just how much would it help the economy William foster is a vice president with moody's which just did a report on student debt forgiveness there's been some estimates that US real GDP could be boosted on average by eighty six billion two hundred and eight billion per year which is quite a bit that's if you had total loan forgiveness busters as it would have to be total forgiveness to see significant results and he says it could also help address rising income inequality student loans are not contributing to what's perceived as lower economic prospects for younger Americans after all all those millions of people are delaying homeownership and that's the most powerful way for most working and middle class people to build wealth Lawrence you a typical homeowner I has net worth about two hundred thirty dollars and while typical renter has only five thousand but well the idea of loan forgiveness is popular among voters it would not be free and this is a big reason that plenty of politicians and policy experts are not on board this would be expensive foster says Americans owe a lot of money on those student loans about one point five trillion and that's more than auto loans and credit cards they're the second biggest that item for households busters as most of these laws are from the federal government and it could forgive them but that would mean giving up the eighty five billion dollars in annual revenue that it's currently collecting on these loans and that would result in a wider fiscal deficit also taxing people to make up the difference would be a drag on the economy and there are other issues of many people would oppose a give away to say lawyers and doctors who stand to make a lot of money later but happen to have a lot of student loan debt also you would want to tax the working class to pay for higher income college graduates loan forgiveness that's why presidential candidates are proposing to tax the wealthy to pay for it add a foster says there could be what's called a moral hazard factor here for future students those students might expect future loan forgiveness and therefore the take out even more money than they might have otherwise and that could create even greater levels of student debt so it plenty of potential pitfalls but policy makers who are pushing for a loan forgiveness say that they have plans to make it both fair and good for the economy and to do it in a way to make education more affordable for future students so they wouldn't have to take on so much debt Chris Arnold and
