"Could not enter art academies in Italy, the cradle of Renaissance masters, no matter how talented Names of a few female artists of that time, and some from the centuries that followed, have often been lost in the mists of history. A Zen prior Sylvia Poggioli reports. There's an effort to bring their names and their work into the light. In this video tour of Florence is famed you Fitzy Museum travel writer Rick Steves list. Some of the highlights the United of Inches enunciation is exquisite. Michelangelo's holy family shows he could do more than carved statues. And Raphael in 2009, a nonprofit group was founded in Florence to see who's missing. I started going into the deposits and the museum storage is and addicts and Checking what was actually there. What works by women? It was something that had never been done before. Because no one had ever before. Asked the question, Where are the women? That's Linda Fanconi, an American writer who helped found a W a advancing women artists. The group has identified some 2000 artworks by women in museum basements and damp churches and finance The restoration of 70 works. Fanconi describes the challenges women artists faced in the Renaissance. Women didn't have citizenship. They couldn't produce art as a profession. They couldn't study anatomy no in the nude figures, for example, because it just wasn't considered appropriate. The inability to study in the same in the same forum as male artists is very significant. A major discovery was a huge canvas 21 ft. Long off 13 life sized men. The only known last supper painted by a woman. She's the 16th century Dominican nun, Clumpy Llanelli who worked inside a convent. Florence has a long last supper tradition. But, says Francona, most of them are static. Whereas Nelly actually chooses sort of the key moment in which Christ announces his betrayal and you have all of the apostles. Feeling the emotion of that very serious news. And so she is able to do. A study of their their responses of their psychological responses Give her time the nuns works were prized because they were believed to be imbued with spirituality.

Like so many female artists, medley was then for gotten It seems to me to be about the middle of the 19th century when these paintings stop being mentioned in the guidebooks. Women artists stop being mentioned. If nobody writes about you, Then you fade from history. Weeks is restoring two large works by the Atlanta Ferrone E an 18th century child prodigy. Little is known of her other than she was born in 17. 20 lived in a period of great change, says writer and Ghaleb. We do know that well educated women.

The subject matter was usually reserved for men spirituals scenes to help heal the ill. The art of healing has been a constant theme of AWS mission, says director Fanconi. Piece of art has its life. It gets hurt. It gets damaged. It needs renewal. It needs to be talked about and paid attention to accept the restoration as well as exhibits. Advancing women artists has fulfilled its mission, says Falcone, and the organization has announced it's shutting down next June due to insufficient funds.

U.K. Moves Toward Ethically Controversial Coronavirus Vaccine Trial

"Vaccine Trials are happening all over the globe today. The UK government announced funding for phase. One of something called a human challenge trial for a corona virus vaccine. The process will require young healthy volunteers to be infected with the virus in an effort to speed up vaccine testing a company called H Vivo and Imperial College London. Have the contract is set up the first part of that process. Here's more from the world's caroline dealer the idea itself sounds wild intentionally infect people with the very virus returning our lives upside down to avoid. People hear about these trials. Many people's immediate reaction is, how could it be ethical but Oxford bioethicist deb Yom row gic says, it's possible if certain conditions are met one of those conditions is that the expected benefits of the research outweigh the risks. In this case, how many infections could we prevent if we developed a vaccine sooner? For example, in a typical clinical trial thousands of people are injected with a test vaccine and sent out into the world to see if they still get infected naturally that's happening now with several corona virus vaccine candidates, but Andrew Catchpole. The, chief scientific officer at H., Vivo the company launching this human challenge trial says that takes time normal traditional trials involve many thousands of subjects take many many months to complete in human challenge trials, which HP VO has been running for decades. A small number of healthy volunteers would be intentionally infected with the coronavirus after getting jabbed with a trial vaccine to see if it works. What happens is because everybody is given the disease, you're able to determine efficacy in a matter of weeks. These types of tiles have been used for centuries and in the recent past have. Sped up the development of typhoid and cholera vaccines. The agreement announced by the UK government today is just for the first step of this contract to manufacture and test Raina the virus to use in trials it still has to be approved by regulators and an ethics panel. If it is between thirty and ninety volunteers could start being injected with just the test virus, not yet any vaccine as soon as the beginning of next year so far nearly three thousand people in the UK have signed up to volunteer for a challenge trial. One of them is allaster frazier ORCA. White indefinite convinced. The Human Josh all has essential to advising Ovalles, scenes, population way more quickly lift on them on opinion the risk is small enough to travel participants that we need to take that risk frazier ORCA put off going to university for a year to work with one day sooner, a nonprofit group advocating for human challenge trials and signing up volunteers. He says the Tom Channel some of the fear of living through a pandemic into something that feels productive grandma custos. My Dodd might catch his out his risk. So kind of on a personal level the. Volunteer volunteers will be paid somewhere around five thousand dollars insurance cover healthcare costs. For any complications they will quarantine in a special nineteen dead unit at the Royal Free, hospital in London for an expected two weeks after virus exposure. Again, Andrew Catch Paul from h Vivo. A first priority was doing these studies is the safety of the volunteers. So for that reason, we go very strict criteria about those who. Will be eligible to participate. Volunteers must be between eighteen and thirty healthy with no pre existing conditions. But there's a more controversial criteria that scientists are wrestling with right now whether to exclude volunteers of color because there is data suggest that there is a potential for increased risk. The UN says Kobe nineteen is disproportionately affecting racial and ethnic minorities around the globe including in Brazil the UK and the US. K. Government figures, black men in England and Wales are more than two and a half times more likely to die of cope in nineteen than white men. Some of that is explained by socioeconomic status in pre existing conditions. But Dhillon David Kumar, a physician and professor at University College London says it's more than that. They're also other underlying causes racism discrimination for example, being an underlying cause which are not easy to count foreign. Announces such as this Dave Qamar said, he's the health impacts of racism and xenophobia. He says, well, it's important to note that raises a social construct, not biological. The effects of racism in tells in ways that can be hard to identify. So you can't hold constant the discrimination someone's face throughout their life. You can't hold constant the environment someone grownup in the levels of air pollution kinds of housing that they've lifting throughout their life. So. There are differences in outcomes amongst racial groups. David Kamar isn't familiar with this specifics of this study proposal, but he says he can understand the reason for picking volunteers who are at the lowest possible risk for getting really sick. Charles cordray chief officer for the Caribbean and African Health Network sees it differently. It's really disappointing people of Color. In clinical trials that's partly due to legacy of racist medical experiments. By white doctors and kwok-wah dray says the idea of excluding people of color from this trial would add to the distrust mistrust and the lack of trust has come about as a result of decades of sometimes how we need to respond so quickly but what is meant is that there's a whole section of people. Fair much. whose voices are not being head HBO is still making a decision about whether and how to include people of Color in the first phase of this trial when they're testing out the safest way to infect people with the actual virus the company hasn't designed protocols yet for the actual vaccine-testing in hopes quickly follows the volunteer criteria for this stage of the study will be finalized and handed over to UK regulators and an ethics panel by

today's unrest it turns out that some of the people involved in Charlottesville are also behind the violence in today's protests and joining us now to talk about that is Amy's Potomac she's executive director of integrity first for America and that's a nonprofit group suing the organizers of the Charlottesville unite the right rally for conspiring to commit violence thanks for joining us thanks so much for having me well where do you see some of the same people popping up now so it's really important to understand how these groups operate and some are incredibly organized with military style higher keys and others are a little bit more amorphous but the same trends we see throughout the board whether it's in Charlotte's veil or now or the many other white supremacist accident happened in between most notably just last night and number of news outlets reported that a white supremacist group called identity Evropa which is one of the defendants in our Charlotte's lawsuit in fact they're the group that quoine that phrase you will not replace us that we heard chanted a few moments ago I'm they were posing as antifa on Twitter to urge violence including during the protests Twitter suspended the account the other day but that tweet had gone viral minute set people off understandably so who are concerned about violence in their communities and allow people including the president to then say that they were going to target antifa deploy the military and so on and so the ways in which we see these extremist groups trying to call walked a moment like this and use it to spread not just is this information but also he an actual violence is a sad trend that has been happening over and over again over the last few years our our so I just wanna unpack that a little bit more about the role of identity Europa first of all what is this organization so there are a number of neo **** and white supremacist groups that are focused around this idea of identity the idea of a white identity and identity Europa believes that there should be a white homeland they believe in the white identity being superior to all there are white supremacist group in that sense and they're big claim to fame if you L. was helping to organize the Charlottesville violence what happened in Charlottesville was not an accident it was not Spontini yes this violence rather the violence is planned for months in advance on social media by number of neo **** and white supremacists including identity Europa where they talked about everything in advance from what to wear what to bring for lunch with weapons to carry and whether they could hit protesters with cars and then claim self defense which is of course ultimately what they did identity Evropa and over played a role in which they organized white supremacists from around the country to descend on Charlottesville and helped us bird this weekend of violence of course as you might expect since they were sued by my organization and since they started seeing additional fallout he will bad PR from their role in Charlotte's well they've tried to rebrand the now go by American identity movement but at the end of the day if they're the same white supremacist organization that has been working to sow disinformation fear violence and of course we are going to ensure that they remain liable for the violence that they cost insurance now sadly there role spreading disinformation and hate and violence right now during the George Floyd protest only underscores the importance of holding them accountable so aside from posting fake tweets posing as antifa do you think that they are actually posing as demonstrators on the streets or that other alt right groups are doing that too posing as as demonstrators and and causing havoc so we don't know for sure exactly who is posing as who at this point but what we do now is that there are a number of extremists including a number far right extremists were trying to take advantage of this moment and exploit it for their own game we also know that they're armed extremists were showing up at these protests in trying to start riots or urge what they call a Google which is their code for a second civil war you might know these guys by their automatic weapons and Hawaiian shirts which are the hallmarks of their identity and some might claim that they're there to protect the protesters but I wouldn't let that fool you they are part of this loose coalition of far right militia extremists who believe in urging a second civil war or some sort of revolution they're generally support of anti government violent resistance and they think that these protests can serve as a catalyst for the violent upheaval that they've long wanted we've only seen a number of incidents over the last few days in which these will extremists have been showing up at protests with their automatic weapons in some cases we've had folks arrested including one who was arrested for firing shots at a black lives matter rally the other day we had the department of homeland security warned lawn for or spend that white supremacists including some of these Google extremists are encouraging their supporters to shoot protesters one of these extremists that on telegram which is a social media site frequented by extremists that they are encouraging them to quote frame the crowd around you for the violence and so we've seen over and over again a number of these extremists go to these protests with their heavy weaponry with our automatic weapons and then either bring violence against the protesters themselves or try to frame the protesters for violence there's so many details that are still on the phone but these anecdotes definitely illustrated construct a concerning pattern and where are they most active these extremists have been everywhere we saw a report of police using automatic weapons and other tactical gear from local extremist in Denver they've truly been all over the place I believe one of the arrest of a protester a rather of an armed extremist who was firing shots at the rally was in North Carolina until they're all over the country and typically these extremists are finding each other online on social media platforms like the very one which the Charlottesville violence was planned and they're inspiring each other with their means and with these other calls to violence so that when an individual goes to one of these protests armed with their automatic weapons wearing their you know their meetings on their desks and on their shirt wearing those Hawaiian shirts it's part of this larger effort to call walk these protests and spread their extremist ideology use these protests exploit them to further their really stick a vision for a second civil war and by second civil war you man like a race war exactly you know and and I would say a race war in certain cases within the balloon movement there are various ideologies as well some are straight up white supremacists who believe that we need to whites rather a race work to spur the rise of a truly white society others are more focused on taking down the government itself they're worried about the government quote you know stealing their guns their quote unquote individual liberty and so within the movement it's important understand that there are factions but there are certainly white supremacists within the global movement and ones who as you said it are doing so are sort of trying to use these protesters burn race war on and bring about this collapse of society that they so crave and so these guys as you say and I assume most of our guys are pretty identifiable because they have their Hawaiian shirts are carrying weapons but I assume there are other groups that are more under the radar a hundred percent I think over the next few weeks we're certainly gonna learn a lot more about who might be coming to these protests are just coming and and looting inciting violence trying to take advantage of a very legitimate protests and distract from it in order to spread their own hate and violence and I think that's really what this is all about at the end of the day these are extremists who are trying to coop these protests in order to sow fear so he and his distract from the actual issues at hand which are racial justice and police brutality and so as they continue to do this it only serves to undermine the very legitimate protesters were out on the streets rightfully sharing their grievances and standing up for the justice thank George for and so many others

"All sorts of things. So with that in mind nonprofit group. Has plotted. The more than one hundred thousand incidents of reported public pooping in San Francisco with an interactive map. Since two thousand eleven there have been at least one hundred thousand one hundred eighteen thousand three hundred fifty two reported instances of human fecal matter on city streets. Now, remember not every pile of poop gets reported. There could be a steaming pile of poop in the road. And most people are going to go. What's the point? There's eight other ones up here. Why do we care? Well, because it's funny to talk about poop on the air. And so it always gives me. Great pleasure. When folks will come up to me at Republic barbecue or the RCC. And they'll say, you know, my five year old loves the show my five year old when he or she hears the music star play will say lock and load and get so excited about your show. And that just that just tickles me. I love it. So I feel like in order to do that we have to have some segments on ice cream corn bread poop. It's also more importantly, no, your audits from know your audience, we're recruiting that next that next generation. It's also the case stories like this is silly as they are. They're not silly. If it's in your city. But as silly as they are they also reflect something deeper in that is the breakdown. Of the municipal government due to bad policies. What we're witnessing here is not unavoidable, and you know, it's not unavoidable because it's not happening in every big city. It happens in some big cities. This is the result of policies that are. Offered and proposed as if they are kind and wonderful and loving, but they do create victims they do create problems if you're going if you're going to say of the homeless person, they're going to have the run of the place, do whatever they want. In fact, we're going to recruit America's homeless people to move out here. And that's how we're going to show. How wonderful we are. You don't just give to the homeless person you necessarily take away from the neighborhood resident that's how that works. There is always an unintended consequence. And that's what bothers me about why we don't win more elections. And why we don't win the discussion of more public policy issues is because we failed to calculate explain point out, demonstrate the unintended consequences. San Francisco's homeless population. Which is a large part of what this is about is in large part due to policies that became an inducement they practically recruited homeless people come to their town and called the rest of America awful for not being willing to do the same. This group is called open the book stock com, they plotted all reports of human waste that were reported since two thousand eleven using latitude and longitude address coordinates of all cases closed. The San Francisco department of public works last year. The number of public poops reported spiked to an all time high twenty eight thousand eighty four in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen the pace continued was six thousand six hundred seventy six instances of human waste in the public space. The city even has a poop patrol. Quote, unquote team consisting of five workers who clean up the literal crap in public places. Can you imagine? Job pays the bills dignity in that? I'm not mad at him. Can you imagine getting up every morning and going? I guess the good news is job security homeless. People have pooped up the streets. All right. Let me get after crap to do the map shows there were one hundred eighteen city neighborhoods affected. In the heart of the city. They were over twenty three thousand eight hundred cases of human waste reported with thirteen cases of human feces in front of city hall seventeen at the US marshals office and sixty seven reports at the tenderloin police station on Eddy street. And it's only getting worse. I've told the story before so forgive me. But I'd brought a group to Portland years ago. I love Portland Portland's one of my favorite cities in America.
