"So I wrote job descriptions for my boss and helped hire my boss. I was buying buckets and spoons for the staff who were going to be taking care of the animals. I made sure we had all the right permits and the licenses and kept track of how many animals do we have and where do we get them from? Where have we sent them, et cetera? And so I was there for 14 years and had some career progression through that. And ultimately, for the last 7, well, not counting the last ten months that I've been here at the San Diego zoo. For the last 7 years at the time I was at the science center, I was the director of husbandry, to overseeing the animal care side of things. And then went through that executive leadership program. Which was a program through the association of zoos and aquariums. Which is an international accrediting body for zoos and aquariums to really ensure the highest the gold standards for animal care, conservation, public education, et cetera. So went through that program and found myself here at the San Diego zoo. So in many ways, you know, it's a lateral move. It's kind of the same job that I was doing at the California science center, but I went from having 21 staff members to having about 275 staff members overseeing what do we have about 250 species at the science center to over 700 species here. And in many, many ways, it's a very, very similar similar role to scope is bigger, but I really, I really consider what if I describe what my job is, it's about taking care of the people who take care of the animals. The staff who work here are just the most expert people. They're so, so smart, and they're so good at what they do. And I just am here to

"Is a graduate of the University of Texas health science center dental school in San Antonio. He also maintains an integrative biological dental practice in marble falls, Texas, where he and his partners have treated patients from all 50 states and 24 countries, including, of course, yours truly, and even my wife, Allison. Doctor Candace Owens, not that Candace Owens, I know some of you are thinking that has practiced that not only Freeman and Owen since 2008. She obtained her undergraduate degree from McMurray university in Abilene, Texas, and her doctorate in dental surgery at UT health science center, San Antonio. Now each of their bios were really long. So I kept each of their extensive credentials to the bare minimum and the interest of time here, but just know that they are both highly educated and very well known and respected in this field. So you're in good hands. These two are just OGs when it comes to this style of dentistry, which to me is the optimal practice. Here's just a couple of the topics we discuss, but trust me, if you have a question about dental health, it's likely covered in the interview to follow. We discuss the legacy of how huggins the pioneer of biological dentistry and why his contribution to the field is so meaningful. What the establishment doesn't want you to know about the effects of mask wearing on your oral health. The danger is dental practice that dentists are risking their careers to warn you about. Mercury fillings and the proper way to remove them, why indigenous people have no need to remove their wisdom teeth and some tips on nutrition that makes that possible. What to do if your dentist suggests a root canal or extraction, the importance of biocompatible dental materials and the various types of implants, jawbone cavitations and how they can lead to other serious health issues. Why fluoride is horrible for your teeth, safe teeth, whitening, solutions for receding gums, smart hygiene practices, and why you might want to check for microbes under your gums and so much more.

We've long known about the pay gap between men and women in the workforce, but now there's new insight into when and why that pay gap begins. The Wall Street Journal dug into education department data of 2015 and 2016 college grads who got federal student aid, and they found that disparities between male and female college grads appears within three years. One of the reporters who worked the story, Lauren Weber tells me there are a lot of subtle factors at play. We did come across cases where there was fairly clear discrimination, where it was very clear a woman doing the same job with sometimes stronger credentials than men in that role was being paid less. Unfortunately, we often couldn't tell those stories because those women didn't necessarily want to go on the record. One woman said to me, it would be career suicide for me to be in The Wall Street Journal talking about this situation. But among the factors that we were able to be much more explicit about, in some cases, it is choices on the part of men and women, which might come out differently. So for example, we looked at the University of Michigan law school, which had a big gap. Men, three years out from graduation, were making a $165,000 median women were at about a $120,000. Huge gap. What we found was that men were more likely to go into corporate law jobs, which pay high salaries. And women were likely to choose public interest, not exclusively, of course, but we found far more women went into jobs like public defenders or working for nonprofit legal organizations. When they said they were choosing passion over the paycheck. Some of the other factors we found were what you would probably call a confidence gap. So we wanted to look at a job where there weren't that many different kinds of things you could do with the credentials. So dentistry was one of the ones we looked at. You graduate with a DDS degree and you're pretty much practicing dentistry. So there should theoretically not be much difference between what men and women earn. But we looked at the graduates from the University of Texas health science center at San Antonio, where there was a gap of about a $140,000 median for men, a 103,000 for women. And what we found that men felt more confidence to open a practice straight out of graduation. Whereas women we spoke to, many of them said, you know, I didn't quite feel like I was ready to open my own practice. I wanted to do a residency for a year or in some cases they worked for another dentist as an associate dentist for a few years before opening their own practice, which is the more lucrative path. And were those women less qualified or were they truly less prepared than the men who went and opened their own practices? I don't think so. And I spoke to one of the female graduates who had become a dentistry professor and she said, my female students are amazing. It's just that they don't have as much confidence as the men. That is Wall Street Journal reporter Lauren Weber, coming up on WTO, the Nats game at Nats park with the reds in the bottom of the 9th right now. We'll get an update from Frank hanrahan. It's ten 13.

"7. Science has returned to the Seattle center campus as Brian Gilbert chairs a long time attraction has reopened its doors. Originally built for the 1962 world's fair, its majestic pools and arches made it a centerpiece. Now the Pacific science center is reborn so to speak, after closing two years during the pandemic. It is very exciting. You know, over the past two years, we have been able to still serve the community with our digital programming and in person camps, but to welcome visitors back on our campus for a lot of the beloved experiences and some new experiences. It's a really exciting day. These are O'Neill as vice president of marketing and sales for the Pacific science center. She says a lot of your favorites are still there. So they're still the tropical butterfly house with over 300 butterflies flying around. So those have come back and are reemerging every day. So you can check out the poop and actually them emerging. In real life, there's also the planetarium and our laser dome. It's the world's largest dedicated laser dome. And we actually are excited to be offering three daytime laser shows with general admission. Wait, what about the dinosaurs, Lisa? The dinosaurs are indeed still there. So, you know, there are many people who during the pandemic, we absolutely heard a lot of folks who wanted to be able to see the dinosaurs. During the two year closure, some new things have been added to the attraction. One of the most exciting things that we've brought in is a water maze where you can really understand the water ecosystem as you sort of travel through this maze as a droplet. So it's a very fun engaging activity. We also have some augmented reality experiences to that will continue to build on and bring in some additional experiences. She says keeping the Pacific science center relevant 60 years after it first opened, is a top priority. As we continue to bring in more experiences and add to our current experiences, we are looking at the latest science and whether it's in our dinosaur exhibit, we have recent updates on the current source Rex and we are continually science is constantly changing. And so we are constantly asking those questions and sort of evaluating and knowing that it's a work in progress. So we are opening our doors, but as science, we are going to continue to evolve.

"Been married for 29 years and known each other for 40, but taking this brief time to ask each other these 36 questions open us up. We kind of laughed at each other's responses. It led to other kinds of conversations and memories and made us think about what our relationship means right now. When we create and strengthen social ties, we get a feeling of reward. We feel getting us and excitement and even euphoria, which is activated when dopamine is released in our brain. Psychologist Arthur Aaron developed these 36 questions with his wife. And then took them to the lab. He did experiments with both couples and strangers asking these questions. And in this research, people felt more connected and more passionate love for their partners. A few tips, make sure to take turns. One of Arthur's studies showed that if one person answered the whole set of questions, and then the other person answered them afterwards, it didn't have the same positive effect as going back and forth. And change up the questions if you want. It's not the exact questions it matter, but rather starting from simple ones and then going deeper from there in order to build closeness. If you want to try this 36 questions practice on your own and want more suggestions for different questions you can ask, check out our show notes wherever you're listening to this podcast. You'll also find some tips there about how to do this practice on your own, as well as more about the research behind why it's so effective for increasing closeness.

"Back to the science of happiness. I'm emiliana Simon Thomas, the science director at the greater good science center here at UC Berkeley, and I'm filling in for dacre kelton. Today we've been exploring how the practice of gratitude can support people with really demanding jobs. Burnout rates and healthcare have always been high and COVID-19 has only intensified things. How can we prevent burnout? How can we reduce burnout both at the individual level and implementing changes of the institutional level? What is the evidence have to say? Because this is becoming an even greater problem and hopefully more and more people are going to be paying attention to it. Catherine adair is a researcher at the duke center for healthcare safety and quality. She and our colleagues compared the effects of different gratitude practices on the well-being of healthcare providers. We are very interested to see which tools are making a statistically significant impact on people. First, they all filled out a survey measuring aspects of their mental health. So emotional exhaustion, happiness, depression symptoms, and thriving and recovery, these two aspects of resilience, then they zeroed in on three exercises for enhancing gratitude. One called looking forward. We text them a link. They go in and they enter something that they're looking forward to at various times in the future. Then the three good things practice. We sent them a text message in the evening every night for two weeks where they clicked on the link, and then simply entered three good things that happened that day. And finally, writing someone a gratitude letter. They wrote their 5 to 7 minute long gratitude letter. And then we checked in with them a week later. People chose one of these exercises to try, and then they filled out the same mental health survey afterwards. We found significant improvements in depression symptoms, gains and optimism, and improvements in their thriving and recovery aspects of resilience, people's moods improved, they felt better about the future and a little more okay during difficult moments, and there were better at bouncing back after feeling down. Of all the gratitude exercises, the three good things practice had especially good results. And we saw improvements in emotional exhaustion, happiness, depression symptoms, as well as recovery. So we're pretty excited that even a tool that takes only two to 5 minutes a night for a couple of weeks seems to have an impact potentially 12 months later. In healthcare, we often see this badge of honor culture where people feel like in order to demonstrate their commitment, they have to work crazy long hours and sacrifice their personal life. And unfortunately, we know from the data that tends to lead to burnout and burnout predicts patient safety errors. And so we need to shift this culture to one that supports well-being. To making it safe for our colleagues to go home to recharge to take breaks, make sure they're staffing. Make sure that they're the resources needed for folks to do the amazing work that they're capable of. You can check out the gratitude practice for nurses toolkit at gratitude.

You know, your partner in crime it Axl Matthew chased Daniel I think we talk about this on the air and I go scores you guys can come on whenever you want. Was it? You and Matthew was that Axl to started this project? No, actually, it was Elizabeth who received the what this incredible poet laureate, and she also got a green light, which she should tell you more about than us. She invited us to collaborate with her. Gotcha. And so I was just well that Yeah, Great. All right, Take it away. Elizabeth in here. And, Yeah, I just tell you the process and then Jerry can explain what's going on now with the two grades, exhibitions and then more to come. So the Academy of American Poets, which is a huge national organization for poets, Um, offers the fellowship for poets laureate around the country, and it's an application and you apply with the project. So it's $50,000 fellowship, and I contacted Matthew and Jerry and ask them if they'd be interested in working on a project with me, So we worked out some of the details for the application together. I submitted the application I received word April year ago that I received the fellowship. Oh, In fact, you do our project which was all designed prior to Cove. It, um, you know, with in light of covert and s, O. Matthew and Jerry and I got together and we we organized and We move forward. I will explain Briefly. What the project Itwas So what it is, it is was Project for high school. Students and I taught poetry workshops to the students. Ah, syriza poetry workshops. They wrote poems. We studied in the workshops, love poems and owed various poems, contemporary poems that I selected. For them to read prior to meeting with me, Then we talked about them. They did some generative exercises they wrote home. They worked on them with their teachers. The teachers were fabulous. Anyway, they produced these poems and then from the poems they extra Parts of the poem to print on T shirts. That's where David Sloan and youth work comes in. And by the way you quirks received a $10,000 in kind, matching grants from the Academy of American poets for their work on the project as well. Of the original plan was that I would go into the schools and teach the workshops and the students would go into the screen Printing studio Youthworks Mean with David Sloan and learn the whole process of screen printing, as well as meeting with Matthew and Jerry of Axel to learn the difference. Design techniques for the T shirts and so on, so none that was able to happen, Everybody. Everything had to be done online, and David Sloan graciously did all the printing in the studio himself. We have. What? What ended up. We have poems. We have amazing T shirts with designs and poems printed on the T shirts. We have a beautiful broadside collection that was printed with with the T shirt designs on really nice paper, and we have an anthology G that we publish actual published. That collects all the artwork and all the poems from the projects. No, I think I said that in one breath. Wow, Jerry didn't miss anything. Wow. Yeah, a little in Europe and watch you go. So, Jerry, before we get into this, David slow not available, Hey, was going to join us, But apparently he was a big part of this as well. Maybe we'll get he and in Matthew on later to talk about this project as well, Right. So before you go on, Jerry, where is where is all this work? Well, um, we wanted to have one place where it would be for the you know, to cover at least part of the national poetry month of April, and it's still up. It's at the rail yard Performance center right outside the dance studio. And it's Oh, gosh, I'm trying to remember It's like 40 ft. Long and, like six ft High, I'm everything. Everything that lives with just described the broad size the T shirts and you know the poetry and all that. Well, the poetry and all the image that the kids came up with. Okay. And so you can see it all there, um and what you're going to farmers market this weekend. Jacqueline. It's Saturday. Just cross The rebel road tracks and they're going to read the poems. Look at the imagery. It's pretty awesome. Those very same imagery that you're looking at. There was printed on the T shirts by David Gotcha. Um, you know, Unfortunately, this was going to be more, um Larger project in that the kids. Wrote the poetry after working with Elizabeth. And then we create, they would be able to go to Santa Fe, Youthworks. And learn how to actually do soak screening. Um, so that was part of what we had hoped to do, but covert kind of messed with that a little bit. David, as was said very graciously printed these on the T shirts and the kids each got a T shirt with their image on it the image that they designed to go with the poem. Um, so that's where the T shirts now are being warned by all the participants in in the In this project. They're not available there. You know the kid's got him? Yes. And then, uh, With all those images on, uh, all the poems and we wanted in the T shirts who wanted to have the kids. Take Photo portrait of themselves wearing the T shirts but once again covert kind of You know?.

"science center" Discussed on Common Home Conversations Beyond UN75
"All of the details into a big pot and stirred up. We're not going to understand what the earth is or how the earth works we have to be looking at the interactions between the different parts in order to be able to understand its function and our role in absolutely. And how can recognizing the earth system as an intangible global common without borders as proposed by the common whom of humanity. Help us to better address the issues facing our global community. Well the way. I look at it our ancestors. When they stopped their nomadic life and got a permanent address they probably started out by dumping their waste products wherever they were produced by taking whatever they thought they needed from nature dame to eat or trees to burn and get energy and then they realize hey. This isn't working. We're getting sick from polluted water and we're running out of game. We have to make some rules. We have to manage our relationship with the local environment and then we realized when we got to be even more people that it wasn't enough to do it locally if we want clean air and water here in denmark where i live. We can't let the polls in the germans and swedes throw all their rubbish in the air and water so we made regional rules about how we manage our relationship to the world around us. What climate change and the biodiversity crisis and even the corona crisis are showing us is. We need to manage our relationship with the environment at the global level. I don't have a global government which makes it a challenge but it doesn't make it impossible and we're in a phase now. I think where we are attempting different strategies for developing governance to roles that can be used in order to be able to do this management or to set up a guidelines with this management definitely with the intangible global comments without borders concept that's been proposed by the common home of humanity it goes to show with climate change for example. Climate change does not recognize any borders. So it's really important that we recognize the earth system and the global commons as something that connects all of us. Were all a part of it. Yeah absolutely in order to be able to manage this. We're going to have to make changes all the way through our society that includes in our understanding of of governance and how we deal with the global commons. All right and there you have it. We need a green revolution. The earth's resources are limited and we need to change how we deal with our global commons climate change the biodiversity crisis and the cove in nineteen pandemic show us. We need to manage our relationship with the environment at the global level the planetary boundaries framework is essential in tackling some of the planet's greatest challenges and achieving the un's sustainable development goals.

"science center" Discussed on The Morning Fix by 510k Cafe
"Thank you both for having me on this awesome platform to talk about a variety of things in my. My background is is quite unique. I'm a metaxas. Kitto raise in south texas and went to undergraduate school at the mccombs honor. Spring for business. I had a unique insight into case based learning in addition to my pre medical studies than so i combine that background and went to medical school at the university of texas health science center in san antonio. I was very fortunate there to work at the veteran's hospital work on vision rehabilitation and it was particularly lucky to work at the active military hospital. There formerly brooke army medical center and work with burn patients whose to or Injuries from iad's during operation iraqi freedom and enduring freedom and unburned around eyelids and got to head unique interests into eyelids as the vision rehabilitation from the outside. The ice standpoint you know was was something very important for those soldiers who had gotten hurt so that was my first sort of entry point into reconstruction surgery on the island. Which obviously you know you go into medical school. you're not thinking. Hey i want to be an islet surgeon but it was very very unique and very satisfying. So that was my first exposure to occupy surgery at furthered. My training by doing rotations at hospitals across the country in san francisco. Miami the ended up in in oklahoma city.

NRDC's Dr. Vijay Limaye Discusses Measuring the Health-Related Costs of the Climate Crisis
"To the healthcare policy. Podcast i'm the host. David intra cosso with me today to discuss the climate crisis related health. Costs is dr. vj lemay climate and health scientists at the national resources. Defense council center. Dr lemay welcome to the program. Thank you dr maze by is of course posted on the podcast website on background. Twenty twenty set another global warming record this past year tight twenty sixteen as the hottest record year and strikingly warmer than twenty nineteen. For example average temperatures in some parts of the arctic last year were more than six degrees celsius higher than the twenty one thousand nine hundred eighty one to two thousand ten baseline average per no at twenty twenty seven. Us record with twenty two one billion dollar plus climate disasters. The previous record was sixteen and twenty seventeen toiling in some ninety. Five billion dollars in damages are more than double the forty one year average of forty five billion seventy events were linked to hurricanes and tropical storms concerning wildfires california suffered over ten million acres burned more than double the previous record set in twenty eighteen at four million acres adverse health effects caused by climate crisis. Events are on bounce well known for example in two thousand sixteen. The government published the impacts of climate change on human health in the us. And i recently cited lance and twenty twenty countdown on health report that concluded in part quote the world has already warned by one point. Two degrees celsius resulting in profound immediate and worsening health effects close quote nevertheless response. By thorough policymakers. Along with the health care industry remains far beyond inadequate. The best the recent congress recently concluded congress can do as produce a five hundred fifty page climate crisis report that drew no connection between the climate crisis and related effects. Imposed on medicare medicaid beneficiaries. Do likely in part to the fact. That neither med pack or mac. Pack independent gresham commissions given broad authority to address issues affecting. These programs has never addressed much less mentioned the climate crisis with me again to discuss climate crisis related. Health costs is the national resource. Defense counsels dr. vj lemay so at that As background vj. Let me begin by asking. If you can briefly describe the nrdc signed centers work shirt and. Thank you david for the invitation to speak with you and your listeners. I work at nbc. The natural resources defense council we are a profit organization working really to stay guard the earth. it's people plants animals and the natural systems on which we all rely. We combine the power of more than three million at rdc members across the country with the expertise of about seven hundred staffers that scientists like me but also lawyers policy advocates who are working together to protect clean air clean water and the natural systems on which we all depend so i work in the science center at entity see and science release the foundation of our work to protect people in the environment. We worked to understand environmental and human health problems working in interdisciplinary spaces in some of the work that we'll talk about today. In terms of connecting the dots between climate change in house is really the focus of my work. And i just have to say you know this period unprecedented on the scientific enterprise. It's more important than ever that we recognize the value that science brings to society and helping us to confront respond to some of these. Really urgent threats thank you. I appreciate that last point As we are well aware. Let me go to you recently. Published an article To your credit in health affairs Last month last month december issue was a theme issue on the climate crisis. I should say a health affairs polishes. Nineteen eighty-three had never previously addressed. Or excuse me. Nineteen one had never previously addressed this subject So again a -gratulations. Your article with your colleagues was titled estimating the cost of action and the economic benefits of addressing. The health harms of climate. Change But i wanna ask you specifically about that because you wrote in this essay quote unquote. There is currently a knowledge gap that must be addressed for more complete understanding of climate change related exposure response relationship. So explain to me what this knowledge gap is. Sure you know in your setup remarks. You mentioned the huge toll that climate and weather disasters inflicted on the united states last year. About ninety five billion dollars by the federal governments fresh estimate and well that's a staggering number as a health scientist. I'm an epidemiologist. I look at that figure and i wonder what's not included and the truth is that when our federal government is tracking the damage the climate change in reports like the billion dollar disaster list. It's actually not accounting for tremendous profound and sometimes irreversible damage to human house so there is a huge missing component. We think about the continuing and mounting costs of inaction on the climate crisis

What happened at the University of Chicago during the Manhattan Project?
"Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in us. History research resulted in the weapons of mass. Destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there were several reasons wine wise. It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle
Interview with Carlos Rivero, Chief Data Officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia
"Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host Kathleen Mulch. And I'm your host Ronald schmelzer Our Guest today is Carlos Rivera. Who is the chief data officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia off Carlos. Thank you so much for joining us on AI today Hey Ron. Thanks for having me. Yeah, welcome Carlos and thanks so much for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. Check your current role as Chief data officer. Fantastic Kathleen. So yes in my current role on the chief data officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia before that. I've been in that role since August of 2018. And before that I was a chief data officer and chief Enterprise architect or the Federal Transit Administration at the US Department of Transportation that was there for a little over two years as well. And then prior to that I was physical scientist with Genoa Fisheries down at the southeast Fisheries Science Center for about fifteen years. So I've been in public service right now going over nineteen years in both federal and state experience. Well, that's great. I think that provides a lot of real Nice diverse set of experience, you know from Fisheries to the federal government to state government. And I think that's part of reason why we love to have your participation that we had your participation at the data for a-week confirmation that ran from September 14th thru 18th 2020 was of course a virtual conferences everything as these days and we were focusing on the data side of AI and for our listeners who may be interested that content is actually still available so you can come and you can hear the panel that Carlos was on when we were focusing on some of the state and the local challenges for AI and data management. If you go to data, that's spelled like data package i c o n f. It's free so you can go on there and you can check all that content will be made available for many months. So you definitely should check it out and Carlos was on a panel really sharing some of the unique insights of applying a machine learning and also some of the interesting challenges of wrangling data at the state level. So maybe Carlos you for those who weren't Intense or maybe even to motivate folks to listen to the family. What are some of them? Sites that you have seen in terms of just the challenge of managing data and getting it to do some magical things like machine learning at the state level. Well, I mean really one of the most basic things is getting people involved in the process. And in fact has plays a key role in that obviously more, you know, as we kind of evolved in once a leveraged data as of CJ Cassat within the Commonwealth, we realize that the participation of individuals not just horizontal across the organization, but also a vertically through different levels of state government is critical for our ability to integrate those data assets in a meaningful way and when I talk about the vertical, how are the patients I'm talking about, you know data storage data custodians data owners executive sponsors being able to participate in the overall governance discussion because everyone has a role to play in our ability to leverage data as a CJ asset to be able to incorporate that into our data analytics to write better intelligence and within that, you know, a comes in machine learning and artificial intelligence briefing. Jane as much value and insight from the data assets than we currently have. Yes indeed. Go ahead Kelly. Yeah, definitely and kind of to follow up with that on this podcast. We talked a lot about Ai and data at the national level, but maybe you can dig a little bit deeper into what are some of the unique challenges around data at this point level because I know that you know in general there's a general data challenges, but then we can also talk about you know, there's differences between State versus local versus Federal. So the fun thing about state is that you get to play with all the businesses at one time, you know in the federal space like when I was no Fisheries, we're very focused on fisheries and Fisheries applications. Mind you, you know as a physical scientist. I really worked with a lot of different data sets. As I was really more in a fraction of those individual populations and their environments right and anthropogenic impact on those environments and how does that change the behavior of individuals within a species right? And so you have to look at the bigger picture and yep. Integrate data from a variety of different sources other Noah Services resolved as live in North Fisheries, but we also have satellite service. We have the ocean service. We have the weather service. So being able to bring in data assets from a variety of different Services different lines of business. If you will to give you a better picture of what's happening in an environment that's very unique like more often than not individuals within that particular industry. We only focus on the data that they collect they work with on a regular basis and not really look at the bigger picture of what other data assets they can bring in same thing for in Federal Transit right in Federal Transit. It was very limited in their you know, what their perspective was with regards to you know, what data asked us what we going to bring in to really understand what's happening out in the world. They're really focused on providing, you know grants of Transit agencies and authorities to make sure that people are able to get to use public transportation in the most effective way. So it's very very silent. But then when you talk about a state government, can you talk about you know being able to leverage data as an asset at that level you really talking about across all of the different page? Business whether it's education Transportation criminal justice, you know environment what-have-you Health, you know, all of those lines of business now come under your purview and you really have to start to understand. What are they unique perspectives and how can you engage those individuals within each of those lines of businesses to be able to see the value in integrating their data assets and making better data-driven decisions home from that integration. So from a state perspective you really start to get a better handle on the overall picture of what's happening out in the real world versus a very I don't want to use this term negative in my topic view of you know, what your assembly looks like and only that which Falls but then you're suddenly are you paying attention to but at the same time, I've also realize that you know data governance and use of data as an ass is really a fractal type of problem where it doesn't matter. What kind of scale you look at it. It's going to have the same patterns associated with some of the same issues that we dealt with at the federal level we deal with birth. Level we deal with at the local level because it's not a matter of our these issues different. It's just a scale at which we operate in that just kind of gives you a little bit of a difference in wage issue is but the reality is that it's very poor the majority of the issues we do with with regards to data governance and data sharing and leveraging data and analytics a machine learning really comes back to the process and the people aspect of the peace process technology interaction.
Are Wolves Smarter Than Dogs?
"I've known some dogs that are pretty smart I've also known some that worked. Bless him. But could wolves be smarter. Brain stuff. It's Christian Sager, my dogs, winchester and se blue they are real smart. So I was intrigued when I read a new study that said wolves are more intelligent in some ways than my dogs and all their canine friends whether you have a chocolate lab or a coon hound scientists believe that some modern dogs and wolves descended from a common ancestor between eleven thousand and thirty thousand years ago the new study which was published in the September twenty seventeen. Journal of scientific reports is by an international team of researchers at the wolf? Science Center. In Vienna Austria, they found domesticated dogs cannot make the connection between cause and effect wolves however, can they came to that conclusion by testing and comparing how the two species searched for food after giving them hints about where it was located researchers used fourteen dogs and twelve socialised wolves in their experiments. During the tests, the animals had to choose between two containers one with food. And one without the first thing researchers did was determined whether the animals could make sense of communicative clues by pointing and looking at the container with the food researchers. Next wanted to see how the dogs and wolves responded to behavioral cues the experimental pointed to the container with food, but did not make eye contact with the animals. Finely in the last experiment, the animals had to infer themselves which container had the hidden food using only causal clues like noises made. When the experimenters shook the container with the food both the wolves and the dogs did well on the communicative clue tests all found the hidden food both species however failed the behavioral cue portion without direct. I contact neither dog nor wolf could find the food during the last part of the test. However, only the wolves could make casual inferences as to where the food was located in other words the scientists said the wolves, not the pooches understood cause and effect. Study Author Michelle Lamp from the Netherlands reminded. US. However that the differences can be explained by the fact that wolves are more persistent to explore objects than. As, because dogs are conditioned to receive food from US whereas wolves have to find food themselves in nature. What shocked researchers was that the wolves were able to interpret direct eye to eye contact that understanding of communicative cues researchers said may have facilitated domestication. The study is unique also in that it used dogs that lived in both packs and with families, but the results of the dogs were independent of living conditions.
Should we trust our gut?
"My Gut is this big pile of intestines that digest my food I. Don't really know what to be trusted. They're they know that I get these feelings in my got like butterflies when nervous. Or. When I'm hungry like my struggle, I crank feel like squeezy. But like why is my gut able to make decisions like tell me what to do? That seems pretty crazy because I means it has a brain. And that that seems glad you know it's just like it's my intestines but like maybe there is a brain my gut. But at the same time, it's kind of farfetched and wacky. So I decided to take this theory to the park and see what live friends There's a break. In your stomach. Know. What what? Who had your brains in your head? I, think your brain makes. Everything you feel possible. There could be a brain because there wouldn't be space or else you'd have like a big lump on ever side. My feelings and anxieties and stresses they become from here. My God your stomach does not. It set when it's hungry I think there is some sort of connection Fram Magin by cells. As Like wow. You, know I think hires onto something. It is like really complicated and I did a little bit of research. Apparently, there are little creatures in our guts and they're called microbes are remember reading this one factoid from science center saying that all the microbes in your body where about a kilogram. That's crazy. These microbes, their apparently lake all over our body in there like inside US everywhere therefore supposed to trust our gots. Then does that mean that we have to trust all of the little microbes do the microbes have grain? Are they sent? And as was doing this research I saw the scientist called Dr Embry at Hyde. For My pc I studied the microbiome. So I decided to call her up what is microbiome so you can't see it because well, for one it's inside of you but for to they're invisible to the naked eye. So as all of the microbes that live in an on your body so that includes bacteria, viruses, fungi, some parasites, and it's not just the microbes, but it's the things that they do in your. Body. So the micro Byron or God is responsible for a lot of processes in our body. But I wanted to know do the collection of microbes form like a brain. Your Gut is full of neurons which are the same exact cells that are in your brain, and there's this amazing nerve called the Vegas nerve which connects your brain to your digestive tract and your brain can send signals directly to your gut. And your gut consensus directly back to your brain through this nerve, and they're always communicating talking to each other. And because of that, a lot of people like to call this system, the second brain in your gut but I think is probably more appropriate just to call it an extension of your nervous system. Does our gut brain have like a conscience? Sent you. We don't fully know the answer to that. Yet microbes live in your gut and they help affects this communication between your gut in your brain and people are wondering if maybe microbes have a mind of their own and if they do then maybe you know you could extrapolate a little bit and say, well, if the microbes have a mind of their own and they're affecting how my is talking to the brain, then maybe that could be the conscious aspect of it but we just don't know yet. What do you think the brain and the gut are communicating is the Gulping like We're able to process that pizza that you. A couple of hours ago now bring on more and they send it to your brain and then your brain tells you hey, I'm hungry. Grammar. Word is out. It's like. Well, that's definitely part of it but I, think it's just a little part of it. So have you ever I don't know you seem like a very good podcast or interviewer but maybe if you've ever gotten nervous before giving an interview or having to talk to somebody and maybe felt butterflies in your stomach, that is a result of your brain in your gut talking to each other. In addition to giving signals about whether or not, we should eat or whether we're hungry, there's a lot of emotional input as well at between your brain and your gut if you are stressed out or you're really sad about something, you'll notice that you're not quite as hungry It's really amazing. The ways that your brain and your gut can talk to each other. Yeah because like you know if you're sad then the guts like, oh, man, my partners bombed-out. No, I'm bummed up. Remember seeing my best friend at spirit of math new looked bummed out some. Oh Dude what happened and then he said, Oh, my hamstring. Then, he was just green me the whole time interest made meekly music ono. When he said. So. If my gut brain my head brain relic close friends. Do I make my head brain. Sad when I eat something, you know kinda nasty. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever eaten a food that you used to like and now you don't Wanna eat it at all ever again just thinking about it makes you feel sick no. Well, that's happened to me and it's happened to one of my best friends. She hates macaroni and cheese which I think is crazy but she just doesn't like it anymore because one time she ate it made her sick. And this has to do with really intricate and elegant way that your memories are formed. In how they make you react to certain situations and the gut brain axis has a very important role in that. So our eyes and our senses are tied to our head brain and those will help make us recognize the MAC and cheese. Right? Right. So the GUT brain needs to communicate with the head brain 'cause they head brain can recognize it. Yeah. So the next time, the food goes into your brain will say last time I. Am you system it told me this. So maybe just have bad memories associated with this, and then completely affects whether you want to eat that food or not. You know when like your own don't WanNa buy the candy bar or save money you're stuck with the indecision and then like if you're with like your parent or a friend, they'll just be like, Hey, do trust your gut Do you think that's like scientifically accurate? Any think scientist was actually like I am smart scientists. Your has brain trust. Your Gut because it has brain you know a lot of it has to do with this memory formation. Sometimes, we don't remember the memory, but our brain subconsciously remembers it and our gut awesome remembers it and so together, they are able to tell us that, hey, trust us on this point and you know make this decision versus that decision. When you say trust your gut do you think that's the brain thinking and then the message get sent to the got? Or do you just think it's the GOP itself? Your Gut doesn't come up with it on his own. Your brain sends a message Cheer Gut. You're just not aware of it, and then you're then response sends a message to your brain and you're aware of that one. and. Then you get that feeling from it and and you make your decision whatever it is that you decide you know sometimes people fight against their gut feeling. And they go with just their head brain half the time it works and halftime the time it doesn't does that mean? Do you think you should trust the got it self or the brain if you take one away, you break that whole. Cycle of communication, and then the messages you get are Gonna be different. They're not going to be full. You're going to be missing part of the story and so I really think it's both you have to trust both. and. Then if your gut brain is gone on your head brain is sad because he does never friend yeah. Exactly. Maybe, the gut brain is the head brains only friend and only possible friend. It's a very interesting way of putting it I liken. They've been with each other through. So many are Chitty half. Grumble grumble saying.
How to Become a Change Agent in Your Health System with Tony Manuel
"Welcome back to the outcomes, rockets, Sal Marquez is here today I have the privilege of hosting Dr Tony Manual Dr Tony. Manual is a practicing anesthesiologist and Austin Texas. He's a partner with the United States anesthesia partners central Texas and has been in practice since two thousand two. He's an assistant professor. In the Department of surgery and Peri, operative care at Bell Medical School Dr Manual received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt attended the University of Texas Health Science Center for medical. School, completed his residency in anesthesia at the University of North Carolina or Or. He was recognized as the outstanding resident and fellow cardiovascular anesthesia at Duke, university in two thousand seventeen. He received his masters in medical management degree from Carnegie Mellon University and today he's playing. Multiple Roles as as he has in in his career and today we're going to be talking about physician innovation, and in particular how physicians can evolve their career to be greater contributors beyond the point of care and so. I WanNa thank you Tony for joining me today to have this very interesting discussion with you saw thanks so much great. Great to be owner podcasts, and I WANNA. Thank you for actually doing this podcast. Because for a lot of people like myself, it's been a great conduit to learn about what other people are doing, and what best practices that are out there, and it's an alternative to sort of the Journal Review articles that we have historically read and I've actually looked up several companies that you've had on and engaged with them. Really appreciate what you're doing I. Love that man now. That's great. I'm glad to hear that you've done that. That's the intention. Intention and so I appreciate you for doing that, so you know we are having a discussion. Folks Tony and I connected and said you know what the role of the physician is changing, and and so what I wanNA. Do today is just highlight how that's changing through the life of Dr Manual here and so you know I love for you Tony at to just kind of walk us through some of the work that you're doing and how it's changed from just practicing to actually doing more You know as we engage this. You know three five trillion dollar industry that call healthcare. Yeah, it's it's been an interesting journey for me and you know have to credit one of my anesthesia attending when I was in residency, his name's Dave mayor said Gimme, grapevine goes Tony You have to continually strives to maximize your career and Let's see well. What does that mean well? You definitely want to start trying to be the best clinician you can be once. You achieve that you should really look at you. Know becoming really strong in other areas, and I always took that to heart in so I think back to when I first started here in Austin I became the division chief of cardiovascular. Cardiovascular Anesthesia Rochester, saying I helped create division of cardiovascular. Because at that time we were Basically, everybody was doing it, and I fell coming out of myself. This'll be really better if we limited number of people at work in that space and you know put together some protocols and got the team together, and we saw some really good outcomes from that work and I fast forward to what I'm doing today, and that work has changed so much partly because I think every clinician you have to get educated, and I use a rudimentary tools back then, but in after getting that masters degree from Carnegie Mellon I really developed at toolkit that allows me to take on. On much more complex problems that we face and healthcare today. Yeah, that's so interesting, and so you have that entrepreneurial bug from the beginning right so you kind of re retooled the way that you guys approached cardiovascular anesthesia and I'm sure with with much improvements and outcomes, but then you've taken other steps to. You've been involved in startups, and now you're doing different roles. Can you talk to us a little bit more about that? Yeah I worked my way of the medical staff leadership and ultimately became the president of medical staffing while that was a great experience after I graduated with my master's degree. The entrepreneur apart really was intriguing to me. In more important is the. The interface between the clinicians in technology and so The startup is called Dynamic Lights based here in Austin, and it's actually technology out of the University of Texas and They had great idea concept. Basically, it's how to noninvasive map blood flow during Sri will hand you an aneurysm surgery and uses what's called speckled laser technology and I was like honestly Craig. It's continuous. It's noninvasive, but they never really thought about the interaction. How you get it. It's dockers hands. How do you test it? And that was sort of my strength and so I, said well. Let's work together and figure this out and to date. You know we've incorporated. We're FDA approved, and we're. Ducking clinical trial and we're looking to partner with a couple of larger health tech firms,
The Cascadia Subduction Zone
"Today we're going to look at the Cascadia subduction zone, and what could be a mega quake the Pacific northwest subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for earlier quakes come from core samples taken from the. The Ocean floor, and from rings counted in the Ghost forest that I'll talk about a little bit later. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions, Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet, massive coastal storms during nine, hundred and ninety, seven, Ninety, eight, washed away tons and tons of sand, revealing hundreds of stumps, the remnants of a Sitka spruce forced. It is through. Through a combination of carbon dating an accounting of rings that the data, the last Cascadia subduction zone or C. S. Z. quake took place. The Earth's surface is made up of seven major plates and many smaller ones. The smaller plates creator earthquakes for short durations of fourteen forty five seconds at may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place of. Of Water call faultlines between plates March Eleventh Twenty Eleven Japan experience a subduction zone. Quite that lasted more than four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale. It was a fourth, most powerful or quake in the world. Since modern recording began in nineteen, hundred shake created a Su- Nami, the reached a hundred and thirty three feet and mood six miles inland google. Google Japan's main island upon shoot, eight feet in shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches, this was an earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate finally to help put earthquakes in perspective, the long Prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San Francisco. California lasted fifteen seconds the Great San Francisco earthquake of nineteen six was. was eight point six that lasted forty five seconds, but Japan's greater earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes at nine point, one of the Richter scale based on data from Oregon see geographer Patrick Corcoran and Usgs Alaska, science center kiss, missing mysteries will now tour the predicted minute by minute impact of Cascadia. Subduction Zone earthquake on the Oregon coast after three hundred twelve. Twelve years to see S Z could no longer take the strain it ruptures at a spot fifty five miles west of Cannon Beach Oregon and quickly spreads along the seven hundred miles of its length from British Columbia to Mendocino California. The North American plate slips fifty seven feet to the south. West sliding over the Wanda Fuca plate, but remember we're talking about across more. More than fifty miles deep, the first movement sons pressure wave that soapy way that travels through the Earth's crust at thirteen thousand miles an hour, it will reach the West Coast in ten seconds. The leading edge will hit Oregon's cannon beach and seaside thirty seconds later. It reaches Portland in fifty seconds his Seattle at nine point one is what seismologist call a full rip? Most cities can withstand a six point. Eight quake lasted about forty five seconds, but the difference between a forty second, and a four-minute quake has like the difference between a head on collision at four miles, an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes shaking continues, the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle it will have suffered from ground liquefication Berlin will collapse, and they'll be gas fires citywide after six. Six minutes people seeking high ground to avoid the soon. NAMI will be impeded by debris driving. We'll be an impossibility at eight minutes. Nami will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide, but a flash flood speed leading edge will only be inches, but will increase to forty feet as predicted that the cascadia subduction zone quake would create twice the impact of Japan's great quake twenty eleven. Keep in mind the by the time you finish listening to this. There will have been earthquakes somewhere in the world. The Pacific
The Science of Happiness
"This episode at this fraud moment in our history. We're bringing on a leading scientists to help us tackle one of the most pernicious misconceptions that humans have ever fostered. The, very roots of the word happiness reflect our assumption that happiness is something that happens to us rather than something that we can actually cultivate for ourselves HAP- ha. That's the same root of such words as hapless or haphazard, it implies luck. But again, happiness is actually a skill that we can cultivate. Emiliana. Simon Thomas Helps people learn this. Kill themselves. She got an online course called the science of happiness that has reached more than half a million people across the world. She's the science director of the Greater Good Science Center at UC, Berkeley and in this interview we discuss how to make ourselves happier through generosity, which is literally part of our biology. How the pleasure of caring for other people means we'll do it again. How empathy fatigue however is real, and then we debate a little bit the meaning of selfishness, and how we've got love wrong. Before we dive in I wanNA, flag that this is a conversation. We recorded late last year prior to the pandemic and the recent racial justice protests here in America, but the insights in this interview are as vital as ever so here we go with Emiliana Simon Thomas. Nice to meet you in person I don't know if you remember this, but when I was writing Timpson, happier I used to call you to make sure I was correct on my research on a few things I do remember that, but it was a long time ago and I'm glad I was able to be helpful. That was just going to say. My memory was that you were really helpful. It's always willing to hop on the phone, so thank you belatedly. You're quite welcome. It's a pleasure as a pleasure to have you on the show your parents were Buddhists while so my parents grew up in the Midwest and one of them came. Came from an Italian family and the other Irish family, and they were not Buddhists as young people, but I think they're sort of early life. Spiritual experience left something to be desired for them, and they wanted to see the world in a different way, and they. You know got in a car with their. You know minimal belongings and came to California and as young people here they found a community and that community where people for the Buddhist leaning and yes, so I grew up going to teachings to temples I. Remember kind of crawling all over my parents while they were sitting still and you know keeping this sorta serene demeanor. I remember China. Take the sweets off of the altar. I think that's a no no. And I heard that when you would throw tantrums over not getting enough desert, your parents would say life is suffering yeah. I don't know. The Buddha would've. Would've. Doors the usage of his signature phrase. I totally agree it's a little hard on a little kid, but you know I fought back and in a strange way it's fueled this lifelong quest for understanding like real happiness in life, so so what? HOW WOULD NOT GETTING ENOUGH DESERT? Play into understanding real happy you know I just didn't buy the notion that we had to always look through a lens of the potential for harm or disappointment or let down and I think that was the message I was getting the. Hey, you know I. Don't get enough. Dessert. I didn't get as much of a toy as someone else got. Or you know we don't have as nice of a house as someone else. Then even those people in their comforts are probably disappointed by various things in their lives and struggling in ways that I can't imagine I don't think. I picked all that up. Though I was like. No sometimes I feel great. You know sometimes I'm having so much fun I can't even like. Hold of myself and just laughter and excitement and I'm not suffering in those moments. How do you define compassion so to find compassion? When I was studying in the laboratory had to find it in an emotional way. It was a specific state. It was the experience that you have when you encounter suffering can be in person or even in your mind, you think about some suffering, and you feel the urge, and you have an intention to do something about it to help to alleviate the suffering that you encounter. That's the experience of compassion as an emotion, so that separates it from empathy, which is yeah, misses the action. Yeah, I mean empathy, I think of as kind of necessary, but not sufficient for compassion, and but the is really more simple, and it is our ability to resonate with each other and our ability to understand the meaning of a another person's emotional expressions, but if If, you only have empathy. You have a lot of other paths. You can go down. That are not compassion, right? You can feel distressed yourself. You can feel Oh, I'm overwhelmed. There's I'm upset in in in being confronted with the suffering, you can kind of suppress any emotional experience that you have. That is sort of mirrored from another person and sort of look apathetic. Kind of Mandra down the road towards compassion, and that means you're not really thinking about yourself anymore, right? You're not focused on the potential for something to threaten you or the extent to which your physical experience is recognizable or familiar as your own pain or suffering, but you sorta channel whatever whatever feeling you have into activating your care, nurturance systems right you're. You're actually orienting yourself as a care provider as a nurture rather than sort of frenetically worried about the possibility that something could go wrong in in your own right.

Finding Calm in Chaotic Times With Erin Pickney
"No question that we're experiencing a chaotic time right now and we've heard so many concerns from people who are worried about cove nineteen about the financial toll is already taking and what this means for the future where all learning how to manage this new normal to frankly doesn't feel normal at all. The good news is there are ways that we can find calm in the midst of this chaos and today we've invited Aaron. Pick me back to give tips on how to make the most of our current situation. Aaron is a Nashville based therapist specializing in recovery from anxiety and depression. And she's here to give a few suggestions on how we can decrease wearing Zaidi and increase our sense of wellbeing. Aaron welcome back to live happy. Now it's great. Have you on the show again thanks. It's great to be back. Well we have a lot to talk about today because as you talked earlier we didn't really expect me talking on the arrogant this soon. But there's a lot going on and a lot of things that people need some reassurance with and you are the person we need to talk about this all right happy to be. Obviously there's a lot of anxiety going on right now and I think one of the things I want to understand is what is causing us so much anxiety. I hear different things from different people as a therapist as a professional. What is it that you see causing us the most anxiety right now? You know. It's interesting because you would think more people were being super anxious about getting sick. Really what most people seem to be anxious about is being isolated or potentially having like a loss of work which could lead to a lot of really negative consequences for people said those kind of seemed to be more prevalent things that people are really anxious about as opposed to like the virus itself interesting and with that kind of anxiety and the fact that we are working from home most of us. We are feeling more isolated. Does that just feed the anxiety to be situation? No absolutely because you know when you're going into an office and you're talking people and you kinda get to have just general social time with people that kind of low humming society that some people live with goes down a little bit. They have other people to share their experiences with. And you just you're not stuck in your own head whereas when you're at home and especially if you happen to live alone and you're not reaching out to other people socially like it's just you and your thoughts and those thoughts can get really out of hand really quickly. Yeah and even people like right here in Nashville. I know we live in a building where they have shut down the gym downstairs and our cross fit. Jam is now closed so there goes at outlet for physical release so if people are in that situation what can they then do to kind of escape some of that anxiety because for like that's what I would do is like I'm GonNa go work out or I'm going to go do some yoga now? Just got more difficult to do that. Yeah wow so. I think the first thing is to try to work out at home if you can. There are a ton of great yoga videos online. I think Yoga with Adrian. One that's like super popular but there's a ton of 'em based on your particular preference in skill level. So you could do that. You can also just like dance. That is one of my personal favorites. It just sort of cranked up the music and dance and if you live in an apartment building and you don't want to make your neighbor's apartment here the music you can just throw on some headphones dance with it. Which is a great way. I also a big fan of singing. While dancing it's great cardio might disturb the neighbors if you're not great but it's also a fun thing to do and then depending on where you live so like over where you are. This may be harder my part of town. I can go for a walk and not come in contact with another person or at least not in close contact. So that's something we can still do. It's also possible to like some of the parks and things. Different places are closing down but you can drive out to a less populated area and go for a walk. Bear fat something that works for you. What are some other things that we can be doing? Then that will help us reduce some of this anxiety so I think kind of hearkening back to our last conversation really limiting social media in the news I've had to turn off notifications from the news stations on my phone which historically have never been an issue but right now. I'm getting a notification every time there's another positive test that's not helpful to me or my mental health and social media is just sort of running crazy with all kinds of really drastic things that maybe aren't realistic or not. What are happening in misinformation. That's out there. If you can choose to have your social media be healthy place. And you've only got healthy people. You're interacting with unhealthy foods that you're following that's great and if it's not then maybe reduced fat or cut it out for now. I know a lot of people though. They're kind of drawn to the news right now. Kind of like a bad car accident where it upsets them and it's disturbing for them to watch but they seem to not be able to stop and I'm originally the way that our society set up now we can watch twenty four seven on multiple stations and yes we can get completely inundated. So how do we balance that kind of a need to know with need to step away I think for me turn off notifications or even fully deleting apps on your phone and then having a check point in the day so I given the rapid nature that things are changing? You might check in the morning check in midday when you have lunch and then check in the evening to see so that you still have access to the important information as things change. But it's just not hunted new notifications as everything I know when are at home working. It's a lot harder. 'cause like doesn't have the TV on in the background right. But that's when I would recommend go into something like a net flicks era Hulu and just watching. There's all kinds of great. Tv shows that are perfect background TV to have running and just not have the news that constant thing you want to check in on it you just don't want it to be constantly checking in on you. I liked that because one thing we started doing and I'll be honest. I started doing this after the elections in two thousand sixteen. Is I no longer watch my news live I I record it and there are certain things I need to fast forward through or upset me and so that's something that I've found helpful right now? Is it's like okay. I WANNA get enough to know like I want this part of the story that tells me the facts of what's going on but I don't need the details. I don't need to know how many more people died in Italy today. You know look through that. And just get the overview. Yeah and another option is to do away with the new traditional sources altogether and look at the CDC website maybe your local health department. They'RE GONNA BE PROVIDING UPDATES at are important information for you to know without necessarily getting the. There's another confirmed case of coveted nineteen in Nashville or wherever you may live and so that is sort of helpful as well. That's fantastic and one thing that I found today. Greater Good Science Center had done an update of ten positive things that have come out of this so far and gave some brighter point that things discoveries were making or some recovery's that are happening that aren't being reported so much so that's interesting to like you can look for some new sources such as greater good or some of these more positive mindset places that are going to provide you with a little bit of uplifting information. Yes that's a great idea okay. So we've handled social media in the news. Got that conquered. What about the social distancing? What's here's the deal. We spend our whole time talking about. We need social connection. This is so important for us in our say. Now you gotta get away from people right so social distancing not social isolation. I think that the thing people jumped to his. Oh Gosh I can't have any contact with anyone who doesn't live in my house will know you can. There's a lot of creative ways to maintain contact with people while still maintaining a minimum of six to eight feet apart. Ideally are you going to go to dinner with somebody right now? We'll know probably not but can you face time in a friend to dinner you can. Can you play like my wife and I were talking the other day about playing Yahtzee with my mom's face time because it's a game that we can all play but we don't have to be in the same spot. There's lots of things like Jack Box. Tv that you can kinda set up using zoom or something like that with screen sharing that you can play with your whole family. So there's a lot of things that are out there and if you think about it from the perspective of we actually have a little bit more time when we're working from home because we're not commuting anymore and when we take our lunch break we literally walked to the kitchen going somewhere to eat so you actually have a little bit more time to reach out to people into get your work done and that's you can actually spend some more time like intentionally calling that friend that haven't talked to you in six months or spending some time facetime ing with your nieces and nephews. You don't get to see very often if we look at it as an opportunity of like okay so just because we can't see each other physically in the same space doesn't mean that we can't still interact. That's a really good point because this is could be a nice time to kind of rekindle some of that communication that gets lost in our busy busy day we end up not reaching out to that best friend from high school that we know we want to talk to. But it's like I'm just so busy I haven't done it the exactly and I'd seen one person posted something about like each day. Ask Quarter you grateful for who you contact. Today was the second thing. I thought that was really interesting that that it was I every day to make it intentional to contact someone different. Oh yes definitely. I've had a few people talk about doing not really a bucket list but kind of like a a list of people that they WANNA make sure they contact while this is happening and so they're sort of setting a pace for themselves with like okay so if this goes on for a month then that means I have thirty days so I have forty two people WANNA call.
