The Social Side of Stuttering
"So today's the inauguration which got us thinking about speechmaking and speech itself president elect. Joe biden has spoken publicly about his childhood stutter. An estimated one percent of the world's adults stutter so in the us that translates to three million people speech pathologists. Naomi rogers one of them might name. Is naomi rogers. I am an assistant professor at the department of special education and communication disorders at the university of nebraska. Lincoln stuttering is when a person repeats or prolong sounds syllables and words causing breaks in the flow of speech or disfluencies. Often it begins in childhood. Childhood stutters disappear. Some stay with a person. All their life. Naomi describes stuttering as a social phenomenon. Stuttering tends to only occur in the context of other people people who stutter tend to speak really fluently when they are talking to themselves when they are talking to their pets when they are singing when they're reading in unison with other people. Scientists don't know exactly what causes stuttering the research is increasingly linking it to genetics in one. Study two thirds of people who stuttered had a family member who also stuttered or use to stuttering likely rooted in neurobiology and the actual mechanics of speech. When biden is sworn in as president. Today he'll get a very important speech but it's actually different speech that naomi keeps thinking about from thirteen year. Old braid and harrington who was invited to endorse then candidate biden the democratic national convention in august. Hi my name is bridges harrington nine thirteen years old and without joe biden. I won't be talking to you today about a few months ago. I met him in new hampshire. He told me that we were members of the same club. We we stutter. Was really amazing to hear that someone like maybe became move about advice para para President just listening to it. Just now for the mtv times goosebumps Again just thinking about the pervasive narrative that exists in our society that You know stuttering openly. is not desirable the fact that he was able to just be himself talk in his most. Authentic voice was incredibly huge today on the show the social side of stuttering what it feels like to stutter as a kid and to hide it and how speech pathologists new me.

A heating pad visit bank of america dot com slash more awarding to apply now copyright twenty twenty bank of america corporation. naomi. Rogers grew up in suburban chicago. Her stutter a in childhood and in her words she didn't have effective therapy through elementary school. I would get pulled out of class and go practice reading tongue. Twisters on sounds that. I didn't even have trouble saying and so like a lot of other young people who stutter you. Learn from a very young age had a kind of go underground. Had kind of keep the stuttering to yourself inside Just because you know that nobody else in your life understands what your experiences like and that is the root of wet. Yeah a lot of like early. Shame and fearful nobility comes from. I think for a lot of folks who stutter When i got into high school. I started working with a phenomenal speech. Language pathologists who is also person who starters herself. And so for the first time. I felt like i could actually talk to somebody that understood the experience. Do you remember what this speech therapists said to you. That made an impact or even just how you felt her presence. Yeah a lot of my memories are of just crying. Honestly i remember going to her office weekly. I would drive an hour each way. Spend an hour there. And i would just unload could finally breathe. I felt like. I could finally talk to somebody who understood the experience and that was. That was my outlet. I cried out. She knew very early on that. I had no interest in learning how to speak more fluently. Practice specific strategies are taking me for making my speech. sam hound really fluent. You know i. I i really just wanted somebody to the holiday. My feelings and my thoughts about sorting and overall communication like who. I was personality as a communicator. And she was really successful in doing that. And and i'm actually wondering now if those early experiences in therapy that i had motivated me to suppress a lot of my stuttering and to hide it at all possible costs. Because i didn't want to go to therapy anymore. Is that what you meant a minute ago. About going underground yet you that you basically hit it as a kid before you met this really good speech therapist. Yeah yeah exactly. Just kind of hiding it and so one of you know. I think being a person who stutters pretty mildly as i do. It's it's pretty easy for me to hide my stuttering It's pretty easy to just scan ahead. Anticipated where i'm going to start on swap word. That's easier to say and so there are some sometimes when my language might seem a little convoluted or like i'm talking around something or like that's kind of an odd were choice but it works. I mean those are all done in an attempt to hide stuttering to pass as a fluent speaker. I'm picturing you in this office. You go to see her and you just cry and she knew that you didn't want to improve fluency. That wasn't the goal and it seemed like the biggest shift between that therapy and the therapy received as a kid is a therapy received. A kid is so focused on fixing yet you yet it. It almost seems like the medical model. It gets at the wrong thing. I without even individ- waiting like the treatment for the person and i'm just wondering if you could like describe the difference in those. Two therapy modalities and how it helped you. So those early experiences says Was speech therapy. were hugely rooted in the medical model of disability and so the medical model of disability defines stuttering basically as abnormal interruptions in the ford flow of speech. And so that is purely grounded. In what the listener hears as nothing to do with what the speaker who studies is experiencing so it's like a listener center definition of actually. Yeah with is messed up because stuttering is such a personal experience right and so people who stutter it. There stuttering only that is a true expression of who they are. They're just using their voice however they were born with it and so the barriers to good quality of life to psychological wellbeing are really on the environment and so i love this new definition. That a lot of folks in our field are trying to push forward that Stuttering is a neuro developmental variation. That leads to a unique forward. Execution of speech sounds importantly those are produced in the context of language and social interaction if we think about fluency on a spectrum of people that are highly fluent and we have people that are highly disfluent then stuttering reflects just a natural variation influence e which i think is really really important and and it situates stuttering as a difference and not

Dan nathan but how about the debt. That was the big question. That was a big push back. I mean they didn't care about the debt in the last few years. I don't know why they would care now. I think if Mnuchin was still the treasury secretary yellen predecessor. I think he was on board for something that looked like two trillion for a lot of the same reasons. So i think you make the point now with interest rates here with interest rates net. Really going up anytime soon. And largely because of the fact they've tacked on four or five trillion dollars in debt in just the last few years. This is the time to do it. I agree go big

Chicago Residents Could Take Another Year and a Half to Vaccinate at Current Rate, Lightfoot Says
"As the covid nineteen pandemic continues to overwhelm communities across the united states the latest forecast from the cdc predict a dire situation in the weeks ahead the nationwide death toll hovers at about four hundred thousand a grim milestone. That's close to surpassing the number of americans that died during all of world war two. The vaccine roll out that began at the end of last year. Were supposed to offer relief. But so far vaccine distribution has seen major delays in most parts of the country. And that's something. The biden harris administration says they plan to address. Here's president elect joe biden last week. We're gonna make sure state and local officials know how much supply they'll be getting and when they can expect to get it so they can plan right now. We're hearing that. They can't plan because they don't know how much supply vaccines they can expect and what timeframe that stops were office. We've been checking in with local leaders. Nationwide about all this and today we go to chicago. Where vaccine eligibility has been expanded beyond healthcare workers in long term care residents to anyone over sixty five who lives or works in the city but at the moment chicago's roll out has been so slow that the city's mayor lori lightfoot says it will take a year and a half to vaccinate the entire city unless the process is dramatically sped up to get a better sense of what's causing chicago's delays and how the city is planning to improve its vaccination process going forward. I got mayor lightfoot on the line this is just a a a very basic issue of supply. We do not have enough vaccine from the federal government. We are dependent upon them not surprisingly to get the vaccine. In every week that we've been up and had our infrastructure clicking into gear we've got less first doses instead of more fo- sauces. That is fundamentally a problem. I've been very outspoken. About this issue. I will continue to be as the change of administration comes into into play. But we simply don't have enough. I does vaccines and it's holding us back and our ability to get vaccines out to those people who are ready willing Enabling enthusiastic about vaccine. We've been talking to mayors across the country Mayor lightfoot about what they need from a state and or federal officials is there something specific. You said you need more vaccine. Are there any other things that you need For the city of chicago from the state or the federal government to move this process along more smoothly. No we're we're fortunate enough to Get direct supply From the federal government. The one thing i will say about the state is we've identified for them that because healthcare workers in chicago also live elsewhere. We've also been giving vaccine to a fair number of suburban residents which is fine but that means we need to have backstop from the state in the county and i think we will get there but fundamentally in addition to getting more first dose vaccines we also need additional resources of from the federal government to make sure that the infrastructure that we put in place has the resources it needs to be successful. We need more digital resources for staffing. And as we expand into a more fixed sites across the city looking at mobile sites we just need more resources from the federal government they had not allocated enough even with the stimulus. Bill that passed at the end of december more needs to be done and i think the incoming biden administration recognizes that necessity mayor lightfoot. You mentioned vaccine skepticism. As being another hurdle that the city is facing in terms of getting people vaccinated and we know that particularly for black and latino populations that history of racism within the medical community has also spurred concerns. Is there anything. The city is doing or do to combat that skepticism in those communities particularly. Yeah we'll look skepticism. Unfortunately is widespread across the country. But what we started to do before we even got the first dose which a really lean into our trusted community stakeholders up in the black and latinx his community that we formed partnerships with this entire past year a since the pandemic came to chicago. We got a great network of partners at the local level through. F q eight. Abc's but also other stakeholders but primarily what we're looking to is black and let necks healthcare workers. Doctors nurses pharmacists. Those folks are really going to be. I think the critical ambassadors as we continue to go hyper local into these communities if they if people see people who look like them speak their language getting the vaccine and explaining why it's important that's gonna make a substantial difference and so we're leaning into those networks. Those trusted community
Joe Biden To Hold Remembrance Ceremony for 400k COVID Victims
"Day of Donald Trump's presidency. President elect Joe Biden and Vice President elect Kamila Harris will take time to remember those who died during the Corona virus pandemic. The nation's death toll hit 400,000 this morning, and both incoming leaders will speak tonight at the Lincoln Memorial, reflecting pool to honor the victims, and the new administration is slowly taking shape this morning.

Senate Begins Biden Cabinet Confirmation Hearings
"Hearings on President elect Joe Biden's Cabinet Cabinet nominees, nominees, and and it it could could be be anything anything but but smooth smooth sailing sailing for for some some of of them. them. Which Which means means most most will will likely likely not not be be confirmed confirmed by by Inauguration Inauguration Day Day tomorrow. tomorrow. Joining Joining us us live live to to talk more about it. Washington Post National security reporter Karen Emergen Karen Great to have you here on w T o P, which nominees are getting hearings today? And why is this process so delayed? Well, you've got spiders, you said. So it's the nominee for director of National intelligence. Averil Han's secretary of state Tony Blinken, Defense secretary nominee Lloyd Austin, Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen and Homeland Security secretary nominee of 100 My carcass. Look, this is there's a huge number of reasons for why this is more delayed everything from the Georgia Senate races not making clear who was going to control the Senate to the right of the capital, creating delays to the upcoming the deal to work out the terms of the upcoming impeachment trial to your standard partisan gridlock that his, you know, infected all parts of DC for years now. And so what you've got is a situation where they're trying to cram in all these hearings before Inauguration Day in the hopes that maybe they can do all the procedural stuff that they have to do to actually get some of those confirmations through the floor. It's looking slimmer and slimmer like that. It's possible that any of these will actually happen on day one, even though the Haynes intelligence and yelling at Treasury nominations are really not contentious at all. I think that you may see some of them happening this week, but I think we already know that people like um, Lincoln's nomination I'm gonna pushed up to next week. Austin needs a waiver to actually be able to be defense secretary because he hasn't been out of uniform for the required seven years. So that's probably take a while. And there's um There's potentially going to be some objections from Republicans to the DHS secretary nominee, So it's you know, a gesture of moving forward and trying to hustle, but it's not necessarily gonna get them to the finish line. Um, by day one, which is standard really, for a president to have at least some of his national security team in place at the get Go. Sure, so so what can this mean for the Biden administration having these delays and not having the personnel in place? In the way that other administrations have with when they have started. What could this mean for him? You know, really getting his agenda going as early as he wants. Well, we're not talking about a delay of forever, and we're not talking about killing these nominations, so probably we're talking about adding, you know a delay of about a week ago at tops to some of these may be slightly more with with others. But just generally speaking, it's not the white the foot that they want to start out on its slows things down. There are competent career officials in places the acting secretaries for the duration it takes to actually get the people confirmed. But you know if I didn't want to come in to make a splash and and have this agenda that would say from day one he was going to correct so the ills of the Trump administration and he's slightly him strong and slightly delayed, So it's more of a You know, presuming nothing terrible happens in the next week, In which case it's a different story, right? But presuming that things are fairly common. The world. Um it's just a psychological impediment for getting going and and promising a new era, which is what he tracked do during the campaign, and they're after. But as we've seen the last few months have been hamstrung with all kinds of delays and slow down and and political arguments that have hampered that. So this is kind of just, you know, if you can't just snap your fingers and have everything change on Inauguration day, and this is more evidence of that. Karen, Thanks so much. We appreciate it. Thank you. Karen Emergent of the Washington Post. Let's get a look at Wall Street. Jeff Klee bomb

That document established the office of the president, vice president and an electoral college based on each state's congressional representation. How many people the state had Before the election. The USA had no chief executive. Under the previous system, based on the articles of Confederation, the National American government was headed by the Congress. Which had a ceremonial presiding officer. All 69 elect Tours cast one vote for George Washington. Making his election unanimous. Two of the original 13 colonies, North Carolina and Rhode Island had not ratified the constitution at the time of the first presidential vote and did not participate. New York failed to choose electors due to an internal political brawl. One month later on February 4th George Washington was officially elected as the first president of the United States and sworn in on April 30th 17 89. He would go on to win a second term. And here's something else you might not know. It would be another 35 years before the popular vote actually had an impact on the presidential race. The 18 24 election. Was the first contest where 18 States used residents to decide how to cast our electoral delegates. Six states still left the choice up to local politicians. The result total chaos. John Quincy Adams defeated Andrew Jackson in 18 24. Because the House of Representatives gave the election to him. Adam's lost the popular vote. And the electoral vote, the only time that has ever happened. Back after this. As you know, the holidays air here, so give yourself the gift of extra money, Pay off your credit.

Good evening, Hans. Good evening. You left that energy. We think we know energy, too. And that's former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm. But I forgive you for being confused as I am myself because so many names have come out in the last four or five hours. Well, let's dive into that. First one. This pick white. What makes it a what makes it stand out to you? So I think we've grand home. That energy. The important thing is, is that vehicles are going to play a big part in the President elect Joe Biden's green agenda, his climate change agenda and you want something from an auto state grand homes from Michigan. She knows the auto industry. So this is gonna be a lot of self driving cars is gonna be a lot of electrical vehicles. TV. That's gonna be a big part of it Early in the day we got Pete Booty Judge who's gonna be transportation secretary and transportation. When you think of the money that's going to course through a potential Biden stimulus. So much of it will go towards infrastructure in its roads, bridges airports, but it's more than that smart cities. It's you know, charging stations, all that will run through energy. Now The other ones you have on the surface is a climate czar. At least the domestic one is gonna be Gina McCarthy. Previously she had been ran in the EPA for Obama. I believe so she kind of knows the ropes. There's also an international climate czar whose Senator John Kerry, former secretary of state So forgive me for giving you too many names, but part of this is gonna be really crowded. Right? It's gonna be a really crowded table and not just the cabinet. They're expanding the cabinet there, adding new names. And there's always a finite amount of turkey and a finite amount of work. So when you think of this and die away out, you could have a lot of big personalities and have a lot of strong opinions. All trying to influence policy, and that's going to be think of dynamic of the Biden capital. And as you said, some of these are our people that have held these positions before or their names. We know what do you think about? You know the going with names we know rather than the new fresh faces. Well, there's one fresh face here is the EPA administrator and we don't totally have this nail in my thing we actually use. We think he's the leading candidate or a leading candidate, as opposed to the leading candidate to give you a sense of how sort of granular we get on this. But he is basically top environmental regulator in the state of North Carolina. African American, Um so he is something someone with fresh face tol, you know, he served in one Democratic ministrations, the lower level. So he's a new face. No. Something The Bible books are sensitive to is that this is just Obama to point out is the new version of Obama and public true. All these names are familiar, but you know the other answers. Where do you want to come from? Right. Do you wanna do you want to import them from? You know Argentina Right? I mean, if you were a democratic politician or a Democratic thought, leader or policymaker, chances are you really want to serve in the Obama administration, and that was just four years ago. So you know the counter toe? Oh, these air, you know, all just told Obama retrenches like, well, you know what people want. They want him to go to Wall Street to pick his cabinet, like do they want him to go to the business community wanted to go the Senate.

But if you are planning on traveling this weekend, don't be surprised if it's quite crowded. All right, So the Electoral College voted yesterday and Mitch McConnell has said All right, that's good enough for me. And he congratulated President elect Joe Biden today. Here is what Mitch McConnell said, though about Donald Trump's term. In office. Over the last four years, Our country has benefited from our presidential term filled with major accomplishments. President Donald Trump has repeatedly surprised skeptics. Unfounded his critics and delivered significant policy victories that have strengthened our country. Case in point. Back in May when the president said the goal of finding a pandemic ending vaccine by the end of this year. His timeline was literally dismissed by people who assumed they knew better. There was one quote. Trump promises Corona virus vaccine by the end of the year, scoffed one headline. But his own experts temper Expectations. Backtrack, complained another headline. Corona virus could come this year, Trump says, experts say It's a miracle. To be right. End quote. Well. With the genius of science support from Congress and the bold leadership of the Trump administration. That medical miracle arrived right on schedule. Americans on the front lines are receiving vaccinations as we speak. This episode offers a kind of a microcosm of the last four years. On so many subjects. Economic prosperity. Foreign policy to protecting American families. Skeptics. Doubted him. Their critics derided him, but President Trump has delivered That is, you know what's going to be interesting is everybody said Well trumps the worst president ever. But you know, the reality of it is when you take out the personalities, which I'm assuming historians will do. Take out personalities involved. I think you're going to find there was actually a very long list of accomplishments that Trump really did do well, I think not the least of which is taking out Isis taking out two major terrorist leaders. And bring about in several nations peace between Israel and nations that said that there was no way in the world they would ever recognize Israel Now they Now they're trading partners. Something that John Kerry, by the way is Secretary of State was adamant and all of his knowledge and experience that no nation will make a separate peace with Israel. It's not going to happen. Never. Never, Never, never. I played you that audio before. He was wrong, plain and simple. And the biggest concern I have with all of this is some of these accomplishments really, our world changing accomplishments. Trump never received any credit for these things. And what I'm concerned about is this new administration comes in, and they're gonna undo actual real measured progress because Well, Trump did it, so it must be wrong, even though it's real, actual measured progress. Guarantee they're going to come running back in signed the Iran nuclear deal. One of the reasons that these nations air making peace with Israel is they recognize that Iran is the problem, not Israel. I've seen nobody in this upcoming administration even acknowledge that situation. No, no, We just want to make peace with the evil people. In Iran, the evil Muller's We're going to try toe, we're gonna appease them. And you watch out quickly. These trade deals with these other nations fall apart. Watch how fast it happened. You watch how progress has been made and you watch out quickly. It's undone because Trump did it. Therefore it's got to be wrong, and that's the stupidity of.
