"What I've noticed is that if you can, if you can turn the discussion back to a core gospel principle, just want to bring a Black Lives Matter and you go back and you talk about the book of Mormon being inclusive of everyone and gathering Israel and the gospel will go out to the aisles of the sea and being inclusive and go back, go back to gospel principles and try and get it away from organizations. And like I said, when you bring up individuals and you bring up organizations, that's probably not going to, that's not going to fly very well. But if you can bring it and turn it around to a positive, what are the core principles of the gospel? And let's talk about those. And how is race with race? How do we love one another more? If we could just touch some basic principles like that, then it turns that it does turn the conversation away from being political and into more of a gathering Israel. More of a gospel based discussion. Yeah. Anything else as far as concept of politics entering the ward and church, so we haven't we haven't discussed yet. We cover it pretty well. I think we covered it pretty well. I just would say, I get dozens of these examples, the centimeter. And every week. And on both sides of both sides. I think it's, again, we need to get ahead of it. It's going to grow. And we've seen, I think, sometimes in the church in the past, you can see where things can fester for a while. And then finally, we come out with the gospel essay, topic essays, right? And things like that, where we might want to do some of those things earlier, get that out earlier on guidelines and protocol on award level on how to handle these things. Yeah. And I think my mind just goes to what I'm learning is obviously we're getting this general direction of politics shouldn't enter these church experiences, classes, whatnot. But it's messy. In practice, it's tough because some people may not think they're saying anything political and others think they are. And then just sort of takes me to those foundational leadership principles of do your people know you. Do they feel like they're heard that they can approach you? Just these things if that foundation is there, I think it's going to be easier to discuss and correct if it needs to be these issues. If you have those foundational leadership principles in place and just focus there and it should turn out well in the long run, let's hope. Well, let's talk about it as far as you mentioned social media and whatnot. And I think it was, I don't know if it was the same talk that president Nelson or in the last conference just said don't look to social media for your news or these things..

"And I guess one thing I mentioned, how would you articulate your professional background that you brought to that calling school president? I might say it was very handy. Yeah. Because my whole life, I've been thinking about how can we help people learn better? How can we help them improve their ability to learn, not just the gospel, but everything that they are learning, and so that's my profession, my profession is improving learning and teaching. So then when I got to the church, compared to, I mean, I probably shouldn't do this, but I compared it a little bit to Mack wilberg. Had been doing music, all of his life, and then he became the director at the time I record. I've been doing learning and teaching all my life. And then I became the president of the Sunday school, and they said, in a sense, they were really saying to me, the brother in a really say, we want you to use what you know. About learning and teaching from your profession, we don't want you to rely on that particular only, obviously, because it has to be, it has to come from heaven. Right. But it's like when the brothers say, a lot of, you know, get all the information you can so that you can have inspiration, more information brings more inspiration, and so I always like the example of president Nelson when that story that he tells when he was a young surgeon and patriarch came to him and said, I want you to operate on me and he said, you know, we can't fix you've got one valve we can fix, but the other valve we can not fix. There's no remedy for that that I can think of. And he said, I'm going to pray about it, and I want you to pray about it, and I want you to operate on. Wow. President Nelson finally did our parade on.

"It gives us all the building blocks all the opportunities that we need. And specifically, I'll just comment. This program is decentralized, meaning they're giving the opportunity to the people who are working on this locally, right? Very different from the scouting program or even from a personal progress program, which is very scripted. So this is not coming from above. It's decentralized. It's personalized. It's recognizing that every youth is on her own journey. It's not a journey of skill development or knowledge development. It's a journey of character development, okay? So it's also flexible. So, and then the fundamental beliefs, when you listen to president Nelson talk, he is reflecting that exceptional mindset when he says things like, you know, you can be part of the greatest work on earth. Now, you don't have to wait. When he says, God has a work for you to do. There are things that you can contribute now. He's saying I see you as a contributor to the kingdom into the work now. I see you through all of that lens. And when all the other people got up there on stage and on these videos, they're reflecting all of the right things. But why isn't it working for so many of our youth workers? Because I think the prevailing attitude was, hey, we just got handed. God's magic wand. God gave a magic wand to president Nelson and to the powers of the. And then they handed it to us and now all we have to do is go tap and teen burnout or sorry, the team checkout and the adult burnout that we've been experiencing for years as assigned youth workers will just go away and it will be engaging, it'll be fun. It'll be all those things that we see in the videos that the church puts out when they're rolling these things out. And then they get into it and they're like, oh, you don't want to set goals..

"Nichols said this is a researcher that followed that there's nothing inherently disadvantageous in on screen reading, except that readers tend to approach it differently. So how are we approaching digital reading different? Well, you talked about our brains being rewired a little at the beginning. Let's hit that a little bit. This is even from the church stuff. So on this slide I took some stuff the church put out. Look at how brief this is a Facebook post in the church news. When I saw this on my Facebook feed, I didn't even stop while I was going through and I read it. I just kept on scrolling, right? This one is, oh, this is from last year's Easter campaign. And same thing, I never even opened that text message until I took that screenshot. Because it just pop up in my little notifications bar. And I would see everything I needed to see. Look at this tweet from president Nelson. This was last year. Let us embrace the future with faith. It's just saying thing. So what's happened is our brains have become programmed and this is the theory behind why it's impairing us or a lot of people's theory. As we programmed our brains that when we read digitally, it should be fast and it shouldn't take much effort to comprehend it. So it should be, if I'm reading on my phone, it should be a text message. That fast or a tweet or a Facebook post size, something really fast and to the point. And as a result, our minds naturally exert less effort when we go into read digitally. So we have to come up with a hack to make it so that we'll put in more effort. And we call those things desirable difficulties. Let me give you an example here. Tagging. And tagging is not just a digital thing. You can do that in print as well. In one study, they had 76 undergrads complete a reading assignment..

"Doctrines of Christ as taught in the scriptures and as taught through general conference. And that that's the foundation of the conversations and the conflict that we're going to need to have. We're going to bring everybody back to that, okay? Now what does this look like in principle? I see it looking like one of two things. The group level and the individual level. So at the group level, I think you need to have this conversation. If this is a real issue for you as a leader, if you're sensitive to this, if it's feeling like there's an issue here, you need to have this conversation with the group with the community. So this specific example, it's the relief society. And you need to be authentic, which means you need to share with them everything you really feel. But authenticity doesn't mean I'm right. It means this is the way I really feel. And I need to understand the way you really feel. And she and she and she and she really feels. So it's going to be a different kind of relief society meeting where we say, we're going to need to get some things out on the table. And it's probably going to make a few of us uncomfortable. But I'm asking you to hold the space in which we can have this conversation without jumping to judgment. Without jumping to conclusions, we've just need to listen and to understand each other. Yeah, and my mind goes to this concept of having the conversation. And this is where it's so crucial that it doesn't, I don't think we should wait for like this heavy issue or this really polarizing issue to then have a conversation. Like some of the best advice I got from a mentor church leader mentor was he told me never let an elders quorum or core meeting turn into just another Sunday school class. And I think president Nelson is comment on that and in recent years where this should be a place where we come together and we have conversations. We hear each other. We engage that way. And so whether it's this big polarizing issue or something smaller where it's like, okay, the elders core activities coming up. Like what do you even want out of this? What can we do that's going to really unify us that's not just a pizza party or whatever it is. And having conversations and creating a stage for those conversations are more regular basis so that then when the heavy issues come, we're already practiced. We already love each other. We already know how to listen to listen to each other. I mean, I'll just give you a quick example. And I'm going to take exception to the wisdom you just shared. I would say because I'm a Sunday school teacher right now. Never let a Sunday school class turn into just another elders former release society meeting. Sunday schools where is that? I teach the older teenagers and this is just what I decided to do. First week back when president Nelson, the first presidency issued a statement about masks. And we knew that it was going to be interpreted differently by different people..

"And we just asked those same four questions because you can pop right back up to the top again, and as soon as I'm done, talking about doctor in a while, that's so cool, then the next thing is like, what bless scenes did you notice were in those verses? And there are three or four. And what is important about that? Because the spirit taught, you know, at least it's not the different or making something different. And you can stay and go deep and deep and deep, and then you pop back out again. And all right, and what did you notice, Lisa? Because there's no way that anyone gets to be wrong. And then you build a lesson around one point or two points, but connection is deep, and we all leave feeling one, and we felt excited and connected. And I could feel the spirit test to find if something important to me that was important enough that I could say it to someone else. And when that other person looks at me with acknowledgment, they've received it. I feel loved and valued because I have made even if it's a different that's my I contributed and everyone hungers for that. And God gave each of us a piece of the equation he didn't give any of us all of the equation except the savior. He's the only guy who got it all. President Nelson has also seen is he doesn't have it all? That's why he has a core of 12 apostles into accounts. He doesn't get to have it all. None of us do. We saw it in his life..

"If he wasn't too busy if he would meet meet with him. I think at 8 a.m. the next morning. And so elder Holland assured him he would. And so the next morning, over a sleepless night, I'm sure Albert Holland was there, meeting with president hunter. And president hunter extended the call to him. And then brought him immediately over the temple where he was set apart and then went for the rest of the day, full day of meetings. And this has been the pattern, you know, like you didn't have anything else on his calendar that day. I know. I know. It's just fascinating. And it happened in June. It wasn't even like general conference. It was like, we're going to call you. We're just going to jump right there. Now think about this. There has been times where individuals were called into the corner of the 12th and their spouse heard about it over the radio or on TV from general conference. That's how their spouse was notified. For the first time in general conference, you know, for the first time in swimming in church history, held her gong and other Suarez our last two at numbers a 101 102 member members of the corps of the 12. For the first time in church history, president Nelson invited the spouse in. I'm not saying that Joseph Smith Brigham young or anyone else did it wrong. But president Nelson has set a new precedent. We're going to call the spouse in and have them be unfold with the call. And with each of these president Nelson, has taken the individual and their wife by the hand and they sat there in a little triangle, okay? And they each held hands when he extended the call. And so this is something new that's never happened in history. Something else that's new that president Nelson has is how he organized the first presidency. Typically what takes place is when the first presidency is dissolved. The core of the 12 meets together, and sometimes as many as 14 members of the corner of the 12, you know, meet together, and the second in seniority will nominate the first in seniority. And then set them apart. He has set apart, he's not ordained a profit. He's already been a profit for years for decades. But they were set apart as the president of president of the church. So president Nelson was set apart by president oaks. This has been the pattern that's gone through except for Joseph F Smith was set about by the church patriarch. The only exception. Now one thing is unique about president Nelson is as this meeting with brought together president Nelson decided to interview every member in that room. Interviewed them separately. And each of them brought forth names of who they thought they should be in the first presidency. And they were not allowed to counsel with one another. Not to compare to Khmer notes or anything like that. They had a sit in silence, has he interviewed each of those individuals? Oh, wow..

"And so he'll remove their quorum and kind of bring them down a notch or two. And so you can see during bringing young's era, if you look at the core of the 12, they're still trying to figure a few things out and people's people come into the quorum with different background. And so they're still trying to figure out how does this function? How is the quorum really work in the world? In fact, the quorum had been out serving missions for so long that they went for 32 years without ever meeting together as a quorum. Wow. There's always somebody gone. There's always somebody missing. And it was so momentous that they all got back together in 1868 that they decided to take a photo. The first presidency and the corps of the 12 for the first time together in 32 years. Always gone. Always always working. And so wow. Yeah. The quorum, you know, how the quorum functions just worked line upon line and as Brigham gets older, he begins to do things to help alleviate some burden at one point he will call roughly 6 to 7 counselors in the first presidency, because the core of the 12 primarily functioned as missionaries, and running the administration of the church became taxing as he got older. And so he'll call, I think there'll be 8 people in the first presidency at one point to help bear off the weight of the administrative burden that they're carrying. And all these individuals aren't always necessarily coming recalled from the corner of the 12 like we see today. No, no. Some will be apostles. We'll hold the priesthood office as a fossil, but not all come from the quorum. He doesn't pull them out because that would pull them away from the primary responsibility of preaching gospel. And he doesn't want to he doesn't want to pull him out of the field. And so he'll bring in other individuals. And when this was happening was, I mean, because now if you're in the first presidency, like when was president, he presided, you know, he was the presiding authority in meetings, even if president Nelson was there, right? And so did that tradition was that tradition still there where there's a presiding component of the first presidency over the corn of the 12?.

"And now I'm hoping, you'll keep us safe and that will be able to get their life without accident and that we can put the kids on the lake and if they're all in life vests than we know we've done our part and now we're going to ask for you to protect us too. Yeah, that's great. Any other principal or thought? That before we wrap up that we may have missed. Well, you know, president Nelson, he is a prophet of invitations and I have been thinking a lot lately about the power of an invitation, you know, in the time that he has been profit. He's he's issued some very, very powerful invitations and he never says You must do this month. I've never heard him. Say, I, I want you to do this. He says, I invite you to do this. I invite you to find and stay on the Covenant Pap. I invite you to be grateful. You know, I invite you to ponder dead. What you could do in your life, if you had more faith and those things go on. And on I invite you to to fast and pray during this pandemic. And he, you know, I invite you to to study the blessings that come to Covenant Israel. And so that is something I'm trying to to think about. What invitations are we expecting to the people that we serve with, what have we learned from our own experiences that we can invite them to per taken? You know, I love going to the temple as the temple opens up. Can I reissue invitations for sisters to join me in the temple? I don't like family history, but there's some great women in my world who have invited me to participate in family history with them. And I'm going to take advantage of that. Yeah. Yeah. So so I do think that if there was one thing that I'd learned from president Nelson, it's that there's power in invitations and yep. Think that that can bless and strengthen all of us as Leaders. Yeah, and, you know, putting that up against it, maybe a sometimes. People think of leadership as a mandates, right? Sort of, I've got the authority, here's what I'm and eighty, just do it type thing and you know that leadership can work. Well, quote, unquote for for a little bit, but this invitation and I've appreciated as well seeing it, you know, in president Nelson's leadership style of just sort of this constant, proud of engage in the gospel and it will change you. And then the invitations will will come to you naturally and you'll continue to grow and develop as as a, a child of God. And that's, that's the point of the Gospel rock. Yeah, he's always saying, I invite you to keep the Commandments and then enjoy all the blessings that will come in your life as a result. Yeah. Yeah, it's awesome. So I want to make sure we give a good solid plug. If wage. You see, people are listening to this via podcast so they can just hit that search bar. Search Church news.

"Tiny little phase called mortality. We're trying to infer that because in this tiny little phase. We're not talking about her. she doesn't exist. We've gotta stretch our perspective a little bit in and see it for what it really is. Yeah so let's take it in the context of church like as a as a bishop whereas someone who's running awarded relief site. He president like they. They're inspired by the quotes in.

Where do you draw the line nor should there even be. A line is necessary to draw. President nelson talks a lot about this defining time that we're in that we need to develop the ability to receive personal revelation. We need better at that. I think the line we have to be very careful in trying to draw where that line is because it may be different for each one of us. There may be in private conversations where i can go a little further with someone and help something that they're struggling with as it relates to this doctrine whereas in a general setting i may be a little more reserved. There may be things that i hold back because maybe somebody isn't ready for it step number one it. This has to burn in our own soul. I we have to have that inside of us. And so i would recommend step number one. You've gotta get it inside yourself. I go spend some time with it. Look at the quotes again. We're not hiding it.

"They're facing a second wave. Germany, France, Italy and other nations are imposing the most severe restrictions since early spring. It leaves many of us wondering how long will this go on? And how will this pandemic end? This is something medical historian. Marconi's bomb has thought about a lot. He's the author of the Pandemic Century 100. Years of Panic, Hysteria and Hubris. You know, we all have High hopes that we won't only have one vaccine, but maybe multiple vaccine candidates, But I think it's very unlikely that we're going to have that vaccine at least you know. Ready to be deployed across populations much before the summer of 2021 on even when we do, it's most likely that you know it's not going to give you no long lasting or lifetime rather lifetime protection so we might need booster shots, so I don't think it's going to end. Cleanly with, you know, suddenly a miracle vaccine that does the job across populations. So what does that mean? It doesn't mean that we're going to have to adjust and learned to live with covert, and we've already seen that, to a certain extent. So let's take a historic perspective here. There have been many comparisons between Cove in 19 and the influence of 1918. How did that pandemic end? There were no vaccines against influenza in 1918 1919. And we don't have many treatment drugs, either. So officials had little choice but to let the pandemic running schools. It ended essentially because we assumed that enough people got the disease and recovered and then had immunity, so that meant there were no longer sufficient susceptible people of the population to continue transmitting the disease. On then, you know, come the summer of 1919 the flu, just dissipate religious background and joined a ll the other types of flu the Rory circulating between the southern and northern hemispheres. So are you saying the 1918 flew ended because of herd immunity? I mean, was that the plan? Well, I don't want to use that phrase herd immunity because for a very specific reason, I think it's really being misused in the present situation, so If you look through medical history, you know, the concept of herd immunity only starts be used in medicine in connection vaccines. We haven't actually reached herd immunity in any epidemic. In the absence of a vaccine is the vaccine that allows us to reach, you know, there's very light high levels of population immunity. In the case of influenza because everyone is exposed to influence influence. In some point in their life. There is always a background level ofthe community that we have, even if a new pandemics training comes along. The difference is that the covert 19 is a completely new pathogen in human populations. So when this whole thing started back in January, nobody anywhere in the world had any community to the pathogen. I know you've noted that even when the acute danger of a virus disappears the experience of living through a pandemic and have lasting political and cultural impact. I mean HIV when it first emerged, certainly an example of that. What about other examples that you've seen? So when people usually ask how the epidemics and they usually ask you for the medical point of view, right? But of course, there's also a sense in which epidemics may end because we choose To you. From a social point of view. I learned to live with the virus or no longer spreads. Faeroe Panic. HIV AIDS is still a medical issue is still very much a medical pandemic, but we no longer fetch of from a social point of view that probably ended, at least in the West. And you know the early Northern's Andi, you know the diseases eradicated History no longer present. Great for. So if you think of the 19th century color was a terrible disease that cools outbreaks in York and you know other cities and there was panic. But of course, we know have vaccines for cholera and unions and the treatable. So these are all ways in which the epidemic could end from a social point of view and no longer be a focus for you know this intense public health messaging and this's kind of narratives of fair Some people see it a slightly hysterical response. I don't share that. But I still think it's a very serious threat. There's a lot worse than you know. Seasonal for, or indeed, the 1957 68 pandemics. Marconi's bomb is a medical historian and author of the Pandemic, Century 100. Years of Panic, Hysteria and Hubris. He's been speaking with us from London. Thank you very much, Mark. Thank you very much for having me. Scientists are working around the clock to develop medicines for code 19, but better treatments. Even a vaccine won't end the pandemic, not of big parts of the world lack access to new products. This worry is sparing some countries to take unprecedented action to try and change the rules for how scientific knowledge is controlled and shared. The worlds. Alana Gordon has more At a recent closed council meeting of the World Trade Organization, South Africa and India. That's something that hadn't been done before. They asked the W T O to waive all patents and intellectual property rights for any covert 19 drugs, technologies and vaccines for the duration of the pandemic. Musta came to comma, South Africa's representative to the council and introduced the proposal. It is a limited time bound exception to the enforcement of intellectual property rights in the interests ofthe public health in the interest of saving lives and in the interest of the poorest and the most exposed to the ravages off this virus. Currently, when a company develops a drug. It gets all the rights, meaning it gets to control the price and production for many years. It determines what other companies are allowed to make the drug for whom and under what terms. The idea is to incentivize innovation, But the Gamma says this control can also limit production and access. And that can delay critical drugs from getting to communities that need them during a pandemic. The world just cannot afford that. We need to maximize the production capacity. We need to transfer no hind technology so that we can save lights. We need more people to produce, not less. Gamma has seen up close how the global patenting system through the W T O can fall short in times of need. By the early two thousands. Millions of people in Africa had died of AIDS because they were shut out from access to life saving drugs. I was a youth at that time. And I still recall the pandemonium in our communities. South African leaders tried to procure a cheaper supply of medicine, but we're challenged in court. These were resisted by a coalition of international pharmaceutical companies, which opposed Our health minister and head of state at that time was Nelson Mandela.

It's a story that is coherent cause and effect but the good bad comes usually call but you have to talk about the negative on the on the run up to it and what gets to deliver it. There's no positive. No I'm I'm I'm just saying that. The story itself is really easy to tell and that's why politicians have marketing people like compare it to say the arts. The Arts are just as fundamentally good sports and they just haven't got the story together and they haven't you know I talk about the United where Shakespeare Company should be the same as the you know. But they don't need said different commercial model. Ifc is embrace commercialism and the arts haven't they resisted the snotty about it so there's the sports role in society is is blown up by its media profile tens of his ability to be a transformation. Let's let's think I mean I lived through the nineteen ninety five rugby World Cup in South Africa. So I mean I don't know if you saw the film invictus. Yeah I mean that was just a very good depiction of sport being used as a as a tool by President Nelson Mandela to heal a divided nation. I mean people were ready to kill each other before. I'd be wool cap. It was a fairytale ending and we ended up with people that were going to kill each other hugging each other in the streets and set up the country for what was the next five years of unmitigated success. I mean it's fallen and a whole since then but you know I think it can be attributed with having made that happen if you look at in women's empowerment. I don't know what the exact numbers but a huge percentage of women that are running fortune. Five hundred companies played professional sports or were Olympic athletes so sports provides opportunities to move people in advance people so I am a great believer in the power sports to be a major transformational driver of societal environmental change and I think that we are punching way below our weight as a sector in terms of the difference in the world. We could make because we're so caught up on the dollars you know what's my purpose. It's to make as much money as possible that the people that own sport. Let's face it. That's what I was going to be fundamental. I don't mind that being the purpose but it can't be the only peanuts. Mind that being the purpose as long as you recognize that the route to that going forward is by being more mindful of what's going on in society so actually if you want to keep their. I'm delighted if your ambition is that the moment but understand that you're not going to be able to do that if you are. A sustainable business If you want doing the right thing if you aren't reaching out to if we aren't healing a Fragmented Society says can do within the Lok so fundamental in local communities so I want you to maintain because if we try and twist capitalism too much. Then we're going to struggle to get anyway so it is about a more intelligent. Capitalism is asking sports kind of I suppose take woke up to shake hands with. I'm not suggesting that we should should capitalism on the biggest capitalism in the capital of the world. I mean always say. I'm not good anybody. If I'm living under a bridge homeless I said this whole concept of doing good and doing well is essential tenants of the way that I operate in the misses that I preach and I agree one hundred percent nick. Sport needs to remain profitable in order to stay in business. But it has this new. Oh do more good exactly Holland actually. There's no point having a business that doesn't hire the best people you know if you we have an amazing organization at beyond spot. I want to hire the best people so I can deliver more change so we have to be a business. The thinks about those sorts of things. So okay I think I can hear noise. There's people milling milling here at the sports week. exhibition hole. Thank you guys. Did we manage to convince you knew? And give us your view. Now you started off as a skeptic so how how you ending up in China. He doesn't change do Chang. I'm very open to surprisingly. I am skeptic rather than cynical always is questioning and I think there's a lot of as I said at the beginning of virtue signaling around this. I don't disagree with some of what you say. I think we are talking to preaching to the choir. There is a broader audience. The last few years of anything is that the conversations that happen in hose like this are not penetrating to the real world out there. You know not just around the world but just in Britain within America there is a whole very angry very unhappy population of probably the majority and we never penetrate that. We're being sport. Sport does indicate. Football does but it's selling something completely different shutting them betting selling them all sorts of lifestyle choices of whatever of the players. All of that is going on there. Whether this message is getting through is another question you know you. You started off actually saying talking about. I'm hearing the same conversation yet that I've heard back in when we first started talking and that is the case real social change happens in social impact in partnerships happened in smaller groups Of Very knowledgeable people that are sitting around the table the way all blending people on the ground that delivering the work the money the league's the teams and also in many ways the global governance. Because we need to kind of release so and so for me these conversations where we're providing great platforms here to talk about it but real impact is happening elsewhere. Happens behind closed doors and is happening And what we've learned over eleven years of running beyond sport is your put the right people in the room and it doesn't matter whether celebrities or not or how important you know it's putting the right. People in the room is K. Okay thank you guys enjoyed that lovely. We're GONNA continue the conversation but until then thank you. Thank you guys what you're doing for our industry is right. I think we all the more common wise is where I'm wondering about alcohol. We need to work on this. We need to have one. I think you will sounds very tiring going rest. Thanks don't..
