You're listening to K and X in depth, along with Mike Simpson on Charles Feldman next hour in the next hour of in depth of later on in the show. Let's say that that sounds good. That's reasonable Still to come. Don't go here when you hear it. Rendez severe. The emergency youth authorization for your Yeah, it'll be non the video. When we get there. We're gonna talk about rendez severe and whether the authorization for it was a little too rushed. And also a window into our lives during the pandemic care of what is in your trash can Right now, though, Sweden where they weren't very big, you may remember unlock downs and mass requirements throughout much of the pandemic and Depending on the rise and fall of their covert infection rates. The country has been held up as an example of either the right or the wrong response. So 10 months into this for the new surge of infections ripping through Sweden. The country's is looking pretty much like the rest of us right about now. Dr Peter Castine teachers molecular physiology at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He's also a lecturer. At Uppsala University in Sweden. Doctor Thanks for being with US Thanks for having me It's a pleasure. So I remember on this show. We We actually had a couple of folks here from Sweden a different times. And at one point they were telling us how great things were going and another point. They're telling us Things weren't going so great. So in the in the end, not that is the end, but what actually is happening in Sweden. What's happening right now is we're seeing a near exponential rise in cases and the health care system is as in many other heart rate area is very close to being overwhelmed. And people are very concerned. Remind us how things were. They never went to total lock down their group gatherings were allowed. I think up to a limit that to us would seem strange like 50. Or so they told people, you know, don't go out as much, but it was kind of on your own accord. Right Do is as well as you can. Yeah, The approaches have been, um Up to this point entirely recommendation based and a rather than requirements, and most of those recommendations have been relatively lax by most international standards of focusing on distance and on washing your hands. I think some of the critics of this policy have said it's It's the best science as of March and maybe hasn't caught up with what we've learned since then. But, you know, I I do recall that that one of the gentlemen that we had on from Sweden beginning of this, He basically said that If, at the end of the day, when depend Emmick eventually leaves us whether it's through natural herd immunity, vaccinated herd immunity, Whatever. That everyone is going to end up pretty much in the same place. No matter what the ended up doing, Do you think that that is what's eventually happening? No, I think this that's ah, I find it's a disappointing cynicism. The political analogy I would draw too. That is a little bit what Vladimir Putin argues that all governments are corrupt. And so don't worry if your government's corrupt because we're all lying to you, and and I think we should hold ourselves tires and and I think, you know, places like Um, you know, Australia and New Zealand and South Korea are not perfect, but they're they're doing pretty well. If you look around Europe, you see that There are a lot of different ways to get this robin fortunate. And and some countries to sweeten Scandinavian neighbors are doing between two intent for better than sweet right now, um, but their problem than a lot of Europe and their problems in different parts of Europe for different reasons. Um, you know, the other thing is, as we start to look at a vaccine. It's Every month that people don't get sick are those air people who might not get sick because they could get the vaccine and that I think then sticking it out becomes really important. So what are they doing now? Because the prime minister is started the limit things, but they still don't believe in closing up a lot of shops. Yes. So what they're doing now, The one requirement now is well as of November 24th. So in a week, public gatherings will be limited taking people. Private gatherings are advised to be limited to people, but there are no requirements. Everything else is advisory and because the region's sort of like the counties in Sweden are the ones who are actually responsible for the hospitals. They're very concerned and under pressure, the public health agency has allowed the region's to enact stricter recommendations. And so some of those regions, for instance, Khanna your cooking Hagen in the South is advising that requiring that people stay off public transport and work from home. When possible and avoid physical contact with people who they don't live. On DSA. Oh, some of these regions are are advising more and more. There are no broad requirements and still everyone's At least in terms of public health recommendations. Everyone's in staying away from that There was a little changed today. Um, when some of the opposition politicians said the government really needs to explain itself if it doesn't believe in masks, toe really say why, all right? I'll talk to him. Uh, I had one quick, really? Just one quick question. I'm just curious. Do you feel more comfortable in Virginia? Or would you feel comfortable comfortable now in Sweden? Right now, I think in in in Virginia, I would say the thing in Sweden is, despite all this When I talk to different people, different employers in different working groups around the country, some people are taking precautions that are very similar to The healthcare systems I talked to in Virginia where people who can work from home work from home they have masks available. They have distancing protocols s O. Some is very similar, and some is very different. Everyone's coming into work, and it's just wash your hands And so there's tremendous variability. All right. Dr. Peter Castine teaches a molecular physiology at the University of Virginia School Medicine. Also lecture at Uppsala University there in Sweden when we went a little bit over Saul Rush through this? Yeah, quickly more to come on. And now a game of commercial chicken brought to you by progressive where we see how long flow could go without talking about insurance. Ready? Go, So the weather is.
The Diversity of Security Challenges in Higher Education
"Now. What is it like? Every year you have a new batch of of students coming on board and they all want to connect to your network I mean what's the? What's the reality of that situation from a security point of view It is a lot of prep-work over the summertime, a lot of you know repair and refine and and. You know replace things that aren't doing well, and then when you know we get about two weeks out from classes starting. which this year is September second. So we're kind of in that zone right now. That's where we're making sure that everything is working. In it in. Its, optimum. Capacity and capability. Following that it's you know let's continue planning for whatever is going to happen next you know we the spring term winter spring term in in January this past year and nobody anticipated. Kobe I I'm not. You know I'm sure that there was an -ticipant because the the fun part of that is we actually did a pandemic tabletop exercise in the division of Information Technology, which is the central a unit on campus. We do that path the fall of twenty and eighteen. So we hit already kind of work through some of the. You know the communications challenges and the organizational challenges so when it came time to do. The transition from online or from in person courses to online courses, we were able to do that in very short time and that included transitioning thirty seven hundred core courses. From in person delivery to online delivery so that really served you well, I and it was the preparation time and it was the understanding. Of what we would need to do and it was also, you know checking those channels you know. I've done some business continuity work in my in my pass and a business continuity plan to just never exercise it's not a plan. It's a bunch of on paper so So we were able to walk through and validate that and that's the kind of work we do during the school year. And we take our you know kind of slowdown period so. Beginning summer you know everybody takes a deep breath and then we exhaling get back to work you know Sometime during the summer I like to encourage my my team to have a little bit of time off. But when September goes in and the students arrive we, we try to work really hard to get him through and then we take it the winter holidays. What what kinds of things are you and your team defending against who? Who's WHO's coming at your network? You know it's the usual array of Fred actors You know think about the things that research is doing. You know we're we're doing. A lot of research in the area of Koga right now, and it's just. Be We have the capability. We have the expertise we have the researchers at want to do that. But we also have school medicine in public health. We also have a school of Nursing School of Pharmacy. So healthcare education is important in that has just a treasure trove highly valuable. Information in it. But we do engineering work, and some of that work is is patentable work. So that's probably attractive We do a lot of business influenced work. we have data science institute which is trying to figure out the the better ways to understand. You know the the magic acronyms of a I in L.. Artificial intelligence. Machine. Learning. And and that's that's attractive information not only that forty four, thousand students twenty three, thousand staff that's a treasure trove of marketable information. You know I always wonder you know someone in a situation like yours where certainly you're going to have some students and I'm thinking of Oh I don't know folks in computer science and other sorts of places who were going to look at you know the the campus system or the university system as you know their own personal playground there that. you know they're gonNA WANNA, test their own skills against yours. I mean I is that an annual thing and and how do you? How do you? How do you not be adversarial? How do you support You know the educational aspects of of those students while still keeping things up and running what's your approach to those sorts of things? Well. So I we we are establishing some really good partnerships with with the Academy with the the the professors and researchers that are interested in studying the cybersecurity arts and sciences. we've had a relationship with the information school. is They're they're part of the College of letters and Sciences and now they're part of what's been amalgam is as the the School of Computing. Data. And Information Studies so CDs. In in in doing that, I, mean, the partnership is if it's data and if it's doing things if it's you know working or arresting or or if it's needing to be analyzed, we have people that are very much interested and so I've had my my department be intentional about establishing those greater relationships we have you know researchers doing anything from identity access. Management Research to data analytics to cybersecurity metrics and then we have others on campus that are doing great work in high throughput. Computing Great Work in in you know engineering the the next greatest you know computer technologies. In other side trips we had We have a researcher that is working on, Thomas Vehicle. Research you know and there's an awful lot of cyber in there too so. Having those kind of relationships is the the real multiplier here, and this is not unusual by the way for university. This is nothing super special. We're doing it's just that You know there's a, there's a lot of cybersecurity programs out there where there you know NSA certified Center for Academic Excellence. Certified and we're GONNA. Get there eventually. I believe But right now we're just supporting the researchers in the courses are being taught. Sue I myself have been a guest lecturer in a one of the business school courses. It has an information security course as part of its core. That's been fun. I enjoy doing. I did a little bit of that as an adjunct University part of my coming here.
Every Dog Year Is Not Equal To 7 Human Years, Houston Researchers Now Say
"All heard this for many years. One human year equals seven dog years Well, a new study says. That's not true. At the University of Houston School Medicine, University of California School of Medicine. They have debunked the popular way of calculating a dog's age in human years. The study says that dogs reach maturity faster but slowdown in ageing after doing so. The lead author of the study says the 127 year ratio doesn't make sense because a dog can reproduce when it's less than a year old, while a human cannot reproduce at the age of seven
"school medicine" Discussed on WorkLife with Adam Grant
"The. Us Isn't the only country where government officials are worried about loneliness. There's one country that's taken a much bigger step on. The Minister of Land Meanness Minister of Loneliness. Is that a job at hogwarts. Well some people think that the has parliament but I've had more correspondence more interest on this subject than anything else is responsible for. Data Baron is a member of British parliament. Loneliness is a big problem in the UK even pre brexit in one survey up to a fifth of all UK adults felt lonely most or all of the time so in two thousand eighteen parliament created an official program to help check in on people who lacked strong social ties and a number of big British companies signed a pledge to improve employees connections. I chatted with Baroness Baron for a few minutes during the recent brexit negotiations and. She told me that she herself felt lonely when she began her. Tenure in parliament arrived. Enormous has six hundred best friends. And you don't know anyone. We were all there at some point in high school but loneliness can be just as difficult to deal with as we grow up. Which is why it's important to talk about it. People are very reluctant to talk about. Ns because they feel it's passed failure. I think pretty much everybody does. I mean I think the fact is the most people talk passage. She's been keeping track of a few workplace practices that have brought people together to work places that like evicted with his photo. Sharing have created the conditions to help people connect more meaningfully of implies benched useful pulled shouting tables so it means that if you send it back table expats instead. I have to say I love the idea of a chatty table it might be the most British thing I've ever heard. Well we have one even over-fish which is the friendly bench. I've heard about that. Tell me more send a friendly banshee and find the park and it's an out too fattening table I have to say. I don't think I'd want to sit on. One of those benches preferred not to be approached. These kinds of programs aren't enough by themselves to transform an organizational culture. But they can open a door and send a signal that it's okay to see connection with your colleagues now not. Everyone works on a team that prioritizes connection sometimes. We have to take matters into our own hands colleagues. I think here the culture is more like people seem to want to be more separate police colleagues. Who are friends and so that feels a little bit isolating? My Name. Is Dr Lose Cloudy. I'm an environmental health scientist at Mount Sinai School Medicine. And what in the world is an environmental health scientist? It's not like being in forest. In counting animals is more about. We can protect people from environmental toxins. We talk a lot about data. You seem so sociable. I would've thought you like people too much to do this. Kind of solitary work. It is lonely work in a way but also because I am partaken and as you grow in this field because there's so few people of Color in science the higher you go up the academic ladder the lonelier unknown Jerry becomes because you're one of the few people who are from that background loose grew up in Puerto Rico with a huge family around. She likes going places in grips and she loves SALSA DANCING. Oh I love science music my favorite thing to do outside of work in South Asia. I tried to engage with you. Try to motivate people in my office. Oh there's a new restaurant nearby you WANNA come check it out. And every every other week I would say I'm quitting tussle seeing. Who's coming with me and feeling nobody did? Loose was starved for belonging. For sense of connection with people she identified with. She realized that her New York colleagues weren't going to get a socialist. She wanted she needed to do something to combat her loneliness so she decided to build a workplace community from scratch. She started with interns. Yes I was able to secure funding to bring in Underrepresented minorities in in science to work in our department. I try to create a sense of community among them yesterday. I bought cupcakes after they had a a lunch seminar so we had a time together at the kitchen talking about how they're feeling and how it's going for them in the internship program so. I try to bring them together as much as I can. When your organization lacks a sense of community or you feel out of place in the existing culture you can build your own micro community. It's a group of people who understand you share your interests that could be people who go on runs before work or it might be a book club or even a podcast club that micro community connect outside of work or during work hours and as loose found. It doesn't have to be a group of Pierce. Now she could connect and share her interest in Puerto Rican cultural events with others at work like when a hurricane hit Puerto Rico and loose was hosting visiting interns whose universities had closed down. They were missing home a lot. And if I know of our concert of music from Puerto Rico I would invite him there and so I think that served to help to give them a sense of belonging that maybe they don't have you know in the everyday in the work. Is this something that you've done when you're feeling low? May you know you create this experience for other people in it also helps you feel connected definitely because the cultural isolation has been something that I've experienced so much so for me surrounded myself on with people even though their interns and more junior but just having them around really helps me feel less lonely. On top of building a micro community loose was doing something else important here. Something that directly affected her loneliness. There's evidence that helping others makes us feel less lonely. It allows us to feel that we matter there were noticed and valued and appreciated for loose creating a space for young people of Color to get a foothold in science. Helped her feel more connected to people at work? Helping others helped her by now. She's been running intern programs at work for fifteen years. She's expanded the micro community into an alumni network and loose feels less isolated whenever this seminar in my workplace. I'm the one who the faculty member who comes in with an entourage of minority students. Not everyone is in a position to hire a community around them but the number of friends. You need to avoid feeling. Lonely work is smaller than you might think. And the kind of interaction you need is more basic more on that after the break. Okay this is going to be a different kind of add. I've played a personal role in selecting the sponsors for this podcast because they all have interesting cultures their own today. We're going inside the workplace at sap..
"school medicine" Discussed on Revision Path
"They're probably going to be like excuse me, like, we'll graduated from morale. So they know that. Okay. Okay. Like every time I say. I would some Morehouse school of medicine, people were like. But that's being are you. Trying to tell me Saana saying, no. Is forbidden women? Right. It's a coed school. So I went to Morehouse school medicine in, I a studied neuroscience in got accepted to the PHD program in also got a whole ride in a stipend in a chance to go to Ivy league in the summer to intervene, NASA program. So my family was like, so proud, but I ended up like hating my life solid like dude, why I don't like this. It was just like me like a bunch of light mice all day studying like having like this longitudinal study in, like it was okay? But like I don't wanna work with mice. I'm like social butterfly. So please, like, don't do this to me own instantly ways. I found that I started studying business at night time. Like just all my I don't know. I just started doing it in started to have the each to like get into advertising, you know, be creative. In. So I ended up, I ended up getting out of that in a went to school to get my ABA instead in the middle of that, somehow, I really cannot tell you talk about way into advertising agency, which is like unheard of you'd not have advertising experience or a -education in advertising. I ended up going getting into like a medium size agency in search engine marketing because social media in a digital marketing was so new, you could teach yourself at schools. You know, had not started teaching that yet. So that's how was able to get in in. That was like the beginning of my career in that in I ended up seeing the graphic design department, in I kept trying to go over there in a win. Let me they were like share like you don't have a portfolio, like what are you doing? It was just like, like levian Lee..
Marijuana-related ER visits climb at Colorado hospital
"Show. So they say Kim abyss related. ER visits tripled in Colorado after legalization of marijuana. They say thirty three hundred patients visited the emergency room at UC health university of Colorado hospital alone related to marijuana back in two thousand twelve but then that jumped to ten thousand by two thousand sixteen. Most of them had GI symptoms toxication or acute psychiatric symptoms. They say ER visits related to edible marijuana around eleven percent between two thousand fourteen in two thousand sixteen. And the research. Researchers say their findings suggest edible cannabis products. Maybe more toxic than marijuana that has smoked or. Eight. So. All right. We have been dying for data to come out of Colorado. I'm not sure why it's taking so long. But we legalize marijuana Colorado. And then I believe we did Washington, California and other states, and now we have a whole bunch of six following suits. And I'm okay with the legalization of marijuana Ivan. Okay. With that. In fact, the voted for it. Because I wanted us to study a more, and I wanted to police freed up so they could deal with, you know, more severe sort of crimes. However, I wanted it to be legalized was certain. Certain. How do I certain societal measures in place like, you know, how are we going to prevent kids from buying it and getting sold to kids and us dealing with second hand smoke and drivers are we going to have a means to are we going to have a means to? Tests people who could be created or toxic it and now, no, no, that's not the way things. Go in politics. Everything is a a one fell swoop sort of attitude just like with healthcare. Obama comes in the congress decides to make this big huge stupid ACA Bill twenty two hundred page Bill, and we have to now deal with all the ramifications, and we can hardly fix all the mess that it made while we're kind of in that same problem with legalize marijuana. And again, I was four legalizing marijuana. What I wasn't for is the speed and the haphazard and the half ass way. We were doing it. And I'm driving down the highway and I'm smelling pot. I'm driving behind people that are obviously intoxicated. And what are we doing about it? And now kids kids are having access to marijuana. Now. True kids have access to alcohol kids have access to cigarettes. They have access to things are not supposed to have access to. But you know, we just went from zero to ninety and and we didn't figure out how to very very subtly incorporates a legalize marijuana system into our society. And legislators just do that same thing with the opioid crisis. The opioid crisis. Rather than going? Okay. Let's break this down four hundred people died in Nevada of opioid use. All right before we make any laws can we figure out what those four hundred people died of last year the year before. It's three hundred ninety five of them died from heroin. Let's make a law. Right. You know, helping our law enforcement officers seize and arrest those trafficking heroin. If three hundred ninety nine of those four hundred a word because Dr Joe gave a thirty pill-prescription tab, then we restrict narcotics in the states. But no, no, no, no. That's not what they do. Legislators are worried because they got a timetable. They ain't got their election coming up. So they have to make a glove. They have to make a super quick we are going to legalize. We're going to please everybody legalized. We'll get California. I gotta give credit credit. They had a little bit more of a plan. I don't know if it was long enough, but they had certain restrictions and not everybody could go and get a license and. You know, they had a fairly slower rollout than some of the other ones. But the the rollout mostly had to do with who can own the dispensaries who could sell disturb you'd I really didn't see much of a plan on how we were going to limit secondhand smoke. How we're gonna limit it in public places, which is where I mean, I was getting buzzed off. Somebody who was smoking two stories above me in the hotel. So if you have a public place, and it's mostly a nonsmoking hotel. How are you going to protect because people smoking pot and the rule of smoke. Smoking pot is legal. But I get there's money. There's a lot of money. So, you know, it's been really really slow to get studies come out on what actually were the ramifications. But we're starting to get some stuff from Colorado at least. So they say thirty three hundred ER visits at the Aurora clinic or relate to marijuana two thousand twelve which jumped to ten thousand in two thousand sixteen and tripled. And there were also sharp increase for the rates of hospitalization and the team from the university of Colorado school medicine believes that not only will the visits increase as marijuana becomes more widely available and used them state, but the findings suggest that the edible products. Maybe more toxic then marijuana that has smoked invade. Now, this is huge because I've been telling individuals if you're going to take marijuana for whatever you think is going to help before I would smoke leave the lungs alone. The lungs are very delicate. I'd rather you eat it. It. Problem is is you get the buzz as quickly with eating. So you we more or the potency you'll get or getting into your bloodstream? You know and absorbed through the gut maybe change some of the gut flora, I don't know. But they are noticing that cannabis edibles. For causing a number of visits, and we want to put some data behind this. So they publish this in the annals of internal medicine and the team looked at patients who visited the ER at UCLA Chelsea university of Colorado hospital, they found that there was a threefold increase in cannabis associated visits during this time period about thirty three hundred patients visited the ER and two thousand twelve when just medical marijuana was legal. But then it shot up to ten thousand we discussed that. And they say thirty percent of Colorado are now currently using marijuana. Thirty percent. They say toxication was the second. Most common reason a third most common was acute psychiatric symptoms. What was I the cannabinoid, hyper emphasis syndrome? That's when you get these severe bouts vomiting cyclic vomiting, many of them want to take a shower. They see a shower seems to help their symptoms and the only way to stop it is to tell them to stop smoking marijuana. Now are ers are already pretty slammed. Now, people can say, well, let's just restrict you know, getting marijuana. Let's you know, what why are there? So many people smoking marijuana. Why are some people moving to it over? We're gonna talk after the break. There's a lot of seniors that aren't able to get their medication their pain medication. And there in a lot of pain. And so what are they doing? They're going to be using marijuana for the joints. So we are driving with a lot of our policies people going to marijuana. We stopped. We we did a great job with the tobacco epidemic. Told everybody quit smoking cigarettes a bad scared. Everybody. What did a great job, and I'm really proud of ourselves. But that just shunted everybody to the vaping or people went to food right rather than smoking to keep the weight down the eight. So now, we have obesity. Now, we have more joy issues, we have more pain issues back issues, and then rather than having pain medications accessible because the opioid crisis. We start limiting those. So people are gonna wanna pains not going to go away. And again, we're legislating faster. Then we set up the system in place, and so people end up going it's like the resistance and marijuana

And so could you tell us little bit about your training, which degrees are how you got to this place. Yeah. Absolutely. So interestingly, I'm actually genomic scientists. So my job is really focused on understand the underpinnings of breast cancer. What causes this cancer? What are the mutations that have caused a normal brussel to become cancerous? And so my training actually was in classical genomics, medical genetics. I got my undergrad in biochemistry my PHD in medical molecular genetics that I you and then actually with Brian and head then the honor to join the faculty at school medicine. Great. And I am a classically trained MD and the decided to. Do my specialty in medical oncology? So I do fun things like chemotherapy pills for cancer was trained by great breast oncologist, George sledge and also had a translational laboratory and subsequently partnered with Dr savage in opening the precision Nomex program.

"So this is scribe. Oh, this is this is described as having been very surprised by this binding the first surprise, and then they go on to tell you that they were surprised the first surprise. This is quoting voice. If you can't tell shifted the first surprise. You can kind of identify these different buckets that people fit into. And then the fact that the bucket seem to have some impact on how you respond to the virus and how sick you get was also interesting is Ronald Turner, MD university, Virginia school medicine. There were affects on virus load and how much virus you shed in your nasal secretions. The background microbiome background bacterial pattern in your nose had influences on the way that you reacted to the virus in how sick you got? Well, sort of because they're going to take that right away. So. The nasal neighborhood of microorganisms are not the cause of any of these colts. The colds themselves were caused by cold virus that the volunteers voluntarily took after they've made microbiome was checked. Oh, yeah, I I would not sign up to get a cold, right? You kind of have to be in the right the right place in your. Week, live. Actually, I got college, Audrey, it'll hard up for some beer money. Maybe. I don't know how you really choose it, but you know if somebody says it's recites, I think I'd do it anyway, so so maybe it's because your colds aren't as severe as mine are. And so you wouldn't mind as much so your your nose bacteria's different than mine. But but it does that mean that we would be affected by Colt differently according to this? Yes. So what we're boarding is an association. So it's entirely possible that the fact that you have a staff, they have staffing your nose and they have more sentences not directly related. It may will be. There's some underlying host Ristic that makes you likely to have staffing knows that also makes you more likely to become ill correlation. They, they didn't have it drill down. So. What do they do next? They give an antibiotic. They give. So they had one hundred fifty two participants at all. So this isn't even a small group of people who ran hand. People people who were like, I don't need to do anything this week. Yeah. So they tested the nasal microbiomes before giving the cold to give him the cold and and then they gave people probiotics. So they found that after getting the probiotics, the changes that they saw were none. Not a note me type attics. They were wiping them clean or they were. They were adding bacteria right question. If it was a terrible question, I would have told you it was a terrible question to just to be fair, but that was a great question because that's what they propose doing next. The probiotics didn't have any effect really even on the gut microbe because they didn't wipe. It didn't change the nasal microbiome at all. Didn't change symptoms and ginger, no difference. But they do postulate that they need to redo the study where they do. Do use antibiotics, it's just tougher to do because they don't know, even scientists doing research, don't like to give people antibiotics because of the day and age we live in, but they're saying like, yeah, that's the next step to start with antibiotics, do the cold and see if that same. Today's, yes, if that changes and that you get a different result from there. And so. Yeah, I'm just going to say I'm not surprised about the probiotics, not having an effect. However, because there are have been lots of studies recently that have kind of suggested that probiotics don't work. So..

"Her recounting of a memory from thirty five years ago on his since we have no other evidence. Correct. Northwestern study came out in two thousand twelve blew my mind at the time. I found it disturbing. Frightening troubling. And just to recap briefly, if you've just joined us every time you remember an event from the past your brain networks change in ways that can alter the later recall of the event, thus the next time you remember, you're not recalling the original vent you remembering the previous memory. And the northwestern study showed this was a groundbreaker a memory Donna bridges post doctorate, fellow at Northwestern University school medicine Bobo, a memory is not simply an image produced by traveling back to the original event. It can be an image that is somewhat distorted because of the prior times you remembered it your memory of an event can grow less precise. Even to the point of being totally false with each retrieval. And the professor she was working with and she pointed out that it it's really troubling for witnesses giving testimony in criminal trials, maybe a witness remembers something fairly accurately the first time because his memories aren't that distorted after that it keeps going downhill. Then they go into some of the methodology and the number of people. They they did the studies with every single person showed this affect they said, it's really huge. Is there? I doubt this. It's really is troubling way beyond this case. It just why do we discuss things when I was a kid. I blank a why do we even engage in those sorts of conversations? Probably did something similar. I'm just saying close enough. Says the gal who is the head of the study when someone tells me that you're sure they remember exactly the way something happened. I just laugh. Memories aren't static. If you remember something in the context of a new environment and time or even if you were in a different mood, your memories might integrate the new information while for the study people were asked to recall, the location of objects on a grid bombed. I caught myself in one of these the other day over something inconsequential. But I said something, and then I realized later wait a second. That wasn't me that was this person. It was somebody else I know had that experience, and I told as my own, and if I hadn't like for some reason it had popped into my head from here on out. It would have been me. Yeah. It's really disturbing. And then a therapist told me about like how this happens with fear. So my fear of needles that I've got when you remember when I remember the the needle experience from when I was a kid. I'm not remembering that, I'm remembering the most recent time, I remembered it and remembering the fear, I get from the fears. She become afraid of the feeling of fear builds over time. That's what anxiety is to a large extent. So your fear. So why wouldn't that be the same thing with a traumatic event, you know, a sexual assault where your memory of it it grows right in intensity. Well, listen. This is not an argument now on Saturday, the other of the cavenaugh -solutely because what happened is not only unknown. It is unknowable, but. It's possible. For instance, your needle thing, you're not nearly as terrified at the time as you remembered being years later, almost certainly not which is because with your greater age and maturity. You'd think we'll that would just be silly to be that afraid. So it must have been really crazy is you're telling the story, which again is disturbing and troubling original their names. I've heard the example of when Kennedy shot or nine eleven attacks. Where were you? How'd you hear about it? They've they've pulled. They've asked people and ask them again five years later, and it changes significantly Murray. Which is crazy. It is. And I'm just telling you, this gal may have endured precisely what she described which is awful and scary and disturbing disappointing in one hundred dollars things. But not only is it unknowable toss. It's not even knowable to her exactly what happened especially given three and a half decades passing. Well, it was three decades when she talked to her therapist embarrassed is three decades time passing a fifteen year old girl with a beer inner and a couple of stumbling drunk teenage boys. The actuality what happened is on notes. So if you had a strong memory from your childhood, I have a few doesn't have to be traumatic. But it's just. Birthday party where this happened or something a fishing trip? Whatever it was and then you saw video of it. And it was completely different. Would that like break your brain? I think it might break. My brain all these years. I remember dad, and I do that never happened at all. Some sort of matrix weirdness where you don't have any idea. What's real? And what's not? Seems to be based on that study. What is the case? We just don't have the reality ever presented to us. You know, what I think I'm maybe in the future will with so many kids growing up like my kids with videotape of so many of their iphone recordings of so many of their experience. How interesting point now. If I were gonna comfort myself, and I have to because I find all this so disturbing, particularly as a guy was not a great memory. I would I would say to myself. I am saying to myself. We have the greatest brain. On earth among any beast. That's ever roam the earth. Most most on average. I'm not sure there are probably some really break chimps or Saint of the radio says you. Right. I'm sure there are chimpanzees smarter than and were designed the way we're designed, and it works the way it works. And that's the way it's meant to work. That's the best. It can work. It only had to work as good. It was working to get you up to like fifteen so you could reproduce after that nature. Didn't care. Nature's bastard. So you know, when I look back at my first kiss. Maybe the circumstances were a little different still.
