"Of not just a regular consumer product but also so much of how people see themselves in the world and how they see america. it's like when we had motor vehicle crashes in public health. We started to look how to reduce those well. We didn't say okay. If we can reduce the speed limit that's going solve everything We also had design issues And so we sit in cars now. They're designed very very differently than the ones that a generation or two people grew up in. we have all sorts of laws and particular interventions around specific things. For example the graduated driver's license has substantially reduced motor vehicle crashes and deaths among young people and we used to think driver's ed going to be very effective We have a strong belief in education. If we educate people then they'll do the right thing and we found instead. Drivers had little to no effect and sometimes the opposite effect of what we wanted because it was getting younger people behind the wheel sooner with less experience but more confidence. Because hey had had driver's ed. We can pass laws around gun training. We can pass laws around Registration of firearms. We can pass laws that have to do with keeping guns out of the hands of people who we all agree should not have them. We could pass laws around assault weapons which has a value statement as a society that we don't think this type of firearm belongs in the hands of civilians. But it's that panoply. It's that multifaceted approach but it gives us a chance of doing something which gives us a chance of accomplishing something. But looking at one thing or even a handful of things won't do it. We have to have a comprehensive approach. Well thank you for joining us today. Dr sorenson this has been very interesting and educational.

"And policy. Thank you for joining us today. Dr sorenson thank you. I appreciate your interest in this issue and appreciate your invitation to joining today. great what. Let's start by talking about mass shootings that have been in the news quite a bit in the past couple of months but they're responsible for only a small percentage of gun deaths in this country. What are the main drivers of gun. Deaths in the united states the most common type of gun. Death in the united states is a suicide as you noted there about two suicides for every homicide but we tend to focus on the criminal uses of guns and we tend when somebody talks about gun. Violence they tend to think of homicides in two thousand nineteen the most recent year for which we have national data. They're about fourteen thousand homicides the next most common type of gun death were shootings by police in their five hundred twenty that works marked and then the accidents are what public health. People call unintentional. z- They're about four hundred and eighty six nine those that they couldn't really determine what the nature of the the death was. What the intent was where about three hundred and forty six so overwhelmingly. It's an issue of suicide. Well let's let's move to the Gun violence as a public health issue. What exactly does that mean. And why is it important for how we think about prevention looking at guns as a public health issue is really important for a couple of reasons. One is it. Takes a consumer product approach. How do we prevent this. Let's look at the gun itself. Let's look at its design. Let's look at its manufacturer. Let's look to advertise. Let's look at how it's distributed how it sold and then finally let's look at the purchaser user and almost all of our policies focus on that user component. We spend very little effort and energy looking at what we would call more upstream sorts of issues. And that's in no small part because guns were specifically exempted from the consumer product safety commission act of nineteen seventy six. they're the only consumer product retreated like that And so we don't have any safety regulations on guns to continue this just a bit more when we talk about a public health approach. We're talking about population we're talking about policy and we're also talking about prevention as to a more criminal justice or after the fact approach that focuses on the individuals and on how to treat in intervene after the fact. Do you think that the increasing visibility of mass shootings has changed the way people fear gun violence in their everyday life. Yes definitely Going about our basic activities really important to feel safe and we've had mass shootings at school. Movie theaters concerts. Supermarkets work nightclubs places of worship. These are things that we do every day. Just as a regular routine in as a regular matter and yes that fear of. We're not safe just doing our lives has has crept in and i think it does change people's behavior we don't have lots of solid research on it but if it mean this is even cocktail party conversation of what it does People in the past. I think would try to avoid or certain neighborhoods that they thought were risky or certain circumstances they would think are risky but this feels different. Mass shootings make it feel random or that it could happen to anyone so that lack of control of that lack of ability to protect oneself knicks. Next people very very uneasy.

Claims of widespread voter fraud from the 2020 election. We're desperate attempt to overturn the results of the election. But even as elections, officials of all political stripes said, as much millions of dollars floating from donors who wanted an investigation into fraud Reporting on this in The Washington Post is Shawn Barber, who joins us on the coma News line shot Good afternoon. Thanks for having me in your piece. You feature a guy named Fred Eshelman. He donated $2.5 million in hopes of uncovering fraud. Where did all that money go? Well, Fred Excrement donated $2.5 million to a nonprofit group in Texas that he hadn't heard much about previously but was recommended to him buying a political adviser. Um, and he was very enthusiastic about giving this money based on What he thought would be a robust investigation that would uncover massive voter fraud and potentially overturned the election results over the course of 12 days or so he became disillusioned with that nonprofits efforts and came to conclude that what they were promising was falling short. And she now wants his money back. Is Fred the exception to the rule here, or how much money do we believe may have flowed into either the Trump campaign. The Republican Party or these nonprofit groups like True the Vote. How much money you was flowing in? Well, we're talking about hundreds of millions of dollars in the weeks and months after the election that went to the Trump campaign. The RNC congressional members who were largely advertising and soliciting donations, based on assurances that both legal efforts And investigations. Like true the votes would reveal enough fraud to overcome the election results. You know it, Zraly. Remarkable Even when you look at President or President Trump's fundraising During this time period. He had just lost the election based on unofficial results, and yet he managed to raise Uh, an incredible amount with almost daily fundraising appeals that said, this money is going to be used to reverse this election and exposed widespread voter fraud. Of course, none of that came to fruition and will never know the full tally. Uh, because you have to get into the intent of specific donor so why they were donating in these amounts, but it's safe to say that it was hundreds of millions of dollars that went into this. Now Fred Eshelman wants is $2.5 million back and read all about the story online at Washington Post from investigator reporter Sean Bo Berg. Shawn, Thanks so much for spending time with us today.

Spanish for the. Perkins produced his first project in Twenty fifteen a guy to the Birdsong of South America. The whole project was born of this idea of taking the songs of endangered birds and challenging musicians to make a piece of music from and so trying to marry these worlds of activism, all conservation Goodson and joining us. Perkins invited artists from each of the endangered or threatened birds homelands to build their own solves around the Birdsong. The beautiful thing about electronic music is that it opens up this whole toolbox of things that you can vies do right so you can take a sample of a bird song and do five million things to it. You can turn into an instrument itself. You can reverse it. You can have effects. You can sample. Ed Perkins has just finished the second project.

This bird represents a lot of symbolic in my area of the world's, because it represents freedom and these Central American countries have been striving for political social economic freedom for a long time.

Honoring George Floyd with Real Change, a Statement from Marriott
"CEO Arne Sorenson, and addressing the recent events surrounding race in this country, and in his company in a recent linked posts, saying for many years I've tried to use my purchased Marriott to advocate for opportunity for all regardless of race, gender, nationality, or any other point of human difference, each person deserves to be recognized for who we are and respected for common humanity, and the distinct qualities that make us unique joining us right now. Is Arne Sorenson? He is the CEO of Marriott international and Arnie. It's great to see you. Thanks for being with us today. Becky you to. Want to set this against the proper backdrop, obviously, the last several months have been incredibly difficult for everybody in the Travel and leisure industry. You are a global company. You've got more than seven thousand properties, one hundred and thirty one different countries, so you've been watching the arc of this as it all takes place, you've had to close properties. You've had to furlough employees. Where are we right now? How many of your properties are actually still shuttered? How many? Employees. Have you had to furlough? How many have you been able to bring back? Less aggression there, of course, the impact of Covid nineteen has been profound on our business. We've seen. By Revenue Sales, at army tells by ninety percent globally starting of course I in China then moving around the world as we got into March. And are low point. We had about two thousand, nine, hundred seventy five hundred hotels that were closed around the world. We've probably reopened three to four hundred of those I. Think when we look at even in the United States. We see the early signs of recovery, although we've gone from something like minus ninety percent revenue, something like minus eighty percent revenue so well in percentage terms. If you think about it from the bottom is up one hundred percent. is still a long long. Before and we suspect it's going to be. A slow climb beck. Levels we nineteen. So that sets the backdrop for what a difficult several months it's been already and how much you have on your plate. Employees are kind of watching this and not knowing what's happening on, either then you have the civil unrest and the riots that have taken place, and that adds to it so as A. What did this mean? Warning label to do. What are you hearing from your employees? This is obviously a just blew latest reminder, a frustratingly long Sharon criminal justice, particularly for for blacks and urban cities in the United States. where! There is unfairness that is profound, a and I suppose the only thing that are is what positive about this is the availability of cell. And the fact that we can see the outrageous behavior that obviously. Killed George Floyd in Minneapolis. Allows US I think to some sometimes. Put aside your search for him big. Unity Instead, say this is a profoundly unacceptable. And start to turn the corner in eight now. What is it that we can do about it? When I blog about this weekend, of course was was quite personal. I woke up Saturday morning and had this on my mind as everybody did. and. This is something we should communicate about. I'm obviously not black leader in a business community him United States. We have a very diverse work group and wanted to communicate with them like the more I think about it. It is not just a question about what we Mary Do, which is really the focus of blog, but recognize that what any individual company can do is simply not enough. We've gotTA. Find a way to. Make a dramatic more progress can. Is Space than any single company? Can You well what does that translate into in real terms? Arnie we, all the conversations are underway in a number of different organizations, so the VRT for Jampel is is talking about fitness a real time as we speak. I think many of us are are using our networks, folks both inside and outside our companies to. Talk about places we can make a difference I think I. Think and must each of us do what we can with our workforce and with our partnerships, unity's where we do business, but I think that we can band together also through outfits like the Bart recognized that we've got to work on criminal justice issues which. Company can't do probably ending together and advocating. Criminal Justice around educational opportunity around access to healthcare around access to financial resources. These are for big areas that. Collectively. We can push for not just. What can we do as companies, but what can we? Help implement in the policy space. To to put this outrageous behavior bindis. SAY THAT! These are real time conversations that are happening with you and your peers at the Business Roundtable How quickly do you think that this is something that can, it can translate into action. We had Randal Stevenson a former head of the business roundtable on earlier this week, and he said that look when any of these big companies kind of put their mind to it, they they can have a significant amount of say in policy in Washington and that we've seen it happen time and time again. For issues that are near, and dear to any of these individual companies, hearts or that make a real difference for business business doesn't work free markets don't work in an environment where a large class of our people are perceiving and experiencing injustice, so we have an imperative to begin to use our muscle and are influenced to begin to affect policy change to address this. That this is something where? This is a moment that all of these companies are going to stick with us and say that this A. An agenda that has to carry down I do I do it again. By suggesting for a second, Bart ought to band together and use its force together. I'm not crying. Excuse the conduct that any individual company will be we will continue to be very active in this space as myriad, but I think collectively would be that much louder and I think the Bart and other organizations will move very quickly and will not let up on this. I think our employees basis demand. I think society demands it. I think fundamental aspects of fairness and the importance of opportunity. demands it and I think as a consequence. Is this event I? Don't know whether you had a chance to see prisoner after noon. But one of the things that I found some
Violence in Resistance
"Cities and towns across the country. Protests have broken out telling the police killings of George, Floyd. We honor Taylor Tony mcdade others while many of these protests were peaceful. Others have turned violent with buildings, being destroyed or looted in clashes, breaking out between the police and protesters. In light of these events, we wanted to bring you an episode from our archives to better understand some of the history behind the black lives matter protests why protests sometimes turned violent how governments often respond and what the role of social media is all of this? This episode was originally recorded with Avi Green in two thousand seventeen, and we're bringing it you a bit earlier this week. Our usual schedule given this weekend's offense. Hi I'm Miranda Kelly, and this is the scholars strategy network Snow Jargon. Each week. We discussed in American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon. In this archive episode Avi spoke with Professor Ashley Howard She's an assistant professor of African American history at the University of Iowa shears their conversation. Professor Howard. Thanks for coming on new jargon. Thank you for having me. Why did these protests happen? Well there's no one easy answer, but if I were to give an umbrella term to why they happen is that people feel that they are not receiving equal treatment under the law or in society, and they feel that all of the established means getting equal treatment have failed them. You mean in a way. They're sort of fed up and sick and tired, absolutely fed up in sick and tired I think this is something that people often forget when we think about not only the uprisings or the violent protests that happened in the past two or three years, but also looking historically that there are lots of preceding events that occur beforehand there. There were marches there protester letters of indignation. There were speeches given fun of City Councils, and for whatever reason those cries. Those grievances were gone unheeded unheard, and because of that people take to the streets, and it gets attention, and it's a very loud cry for help and for acknowledged professor. How can you just tell me about one protests from beginning to end? I would love so I'd like to start with kind of the protests. That's been nearest and dearest to my heart. It's the one that I've been researching the longest, and it also takes place in my hometown of Omaha. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six fourth of July weekend. There are a group of young people. In a parking lot of the Safeway Grocery store on North Twenty four straight. And this kind of an area where people congregate and it was. Evening. GOOP young people were setting off firefighters or firecrackers. A police officer comes. They begin to throw firecrackers at this police vehicle, the police kind of get scared and equipped takeoff they come back and forth, and this kind of sets it off people. See Police as indicative at this time of the state of unfair treatment, and oftentimes these police, public attractions are the catalysts for these uprisings, so over the course of three days young people go up and down North Twenty Fourth Street in the black enclave, and they set small fires. They break windows. They steal goods out of these stores, and the very much engaged in property, violence as protests, but meanwhile has this is going on. You have the mayor of the city Av Sorenson actually meeting with these youth activists listen to their grievances listening to what? What they feel is going on the community. And why love, starting off with Omaha is because Omaha had a long history, a civil rights activism prior to the nineteen sixty six engagement, and what was so notable is at the end double ACP, an urban league had been begging the state for years to open up an unemployment office on North, Twenty Fourth Street, and for years that desire for a building was met. You know was ignored, and by the end of the week of those three days of uprisings North Omaha got their unemployment office. While you know it's funny because I think the words are so charged when we think about uprisings or protests that end in violence that involves some aspect of violence on TV you hear about riots. Can you tell me a little bit about why you call them violent uprisings, and what you think of some of those other words? I mean in some ways. I think riot is pejorative, because it seems that when people use that term, it's divorced from the context in which people are participating at it seems as it's just want violence as a social and Beran, and not actually rooted in issues, and you don't violence approach as protests had along and storied history in the world, so if you think of Labor bread riots.

Through the green corn rebellion in the United States hey, mark an uprising working class people people without a lot of political capital engage in violent protests as a way to make their voices heard, and it seems that really in the nineteen sixties when blacks began to use this as a primary tactic in their. Repertoire of protest actions that really begins to be demonized in not lauded as you know the underclass kind of going up against those in power and so for me, I like to use rebellion or uprising, because I see these actions on a political. Continue up that you have protests, you have marches, you have demonstrations and at one end of that spectrum. Is this violent protests? It's not divorce from the other things that have come before, but it's the next step when those issues are continually ignore it. Well. It's interesting to think about the more recent violent protests in the context of that long longer history of protests and the longer history of civil rights and racial relations in the in the states as a white person and also somebody who's gone through sort of the standard His. You know I'm not a student history just like history and high school and all that sort of thing. Boy. Is there a difference in the way that we hear about the non violent protests. Martin Luther King. Gandhi all that sort of thing, and and then the way that Events like watts are described and certainly the way that the media today traits events like Ferguson. And there's a difference between how they were portrayed in the moment, and how they're remembered so watts south central l., A. Nineteen, sixty five. This is one of the first when the earliest large uprisings, and so there is the infamous McCone commission that came out where Ronald Reagan is referring to these folks as mad dogs and lawbreakers, and so even though they're pathologising to actions of the people who are engaging in this type of protests they. They. Still understand that it's rooted in politics. The kerner commission, which came out in nineteen, sixty eight, which looked at that. What's been called the long hot summer of nineteen, sixty seven, and that and that was summer with a whole bunch of protests and uprising. Something about that's correct. That was the deadliest summer and the one with the most amount so in the aggregate, the most amount of in terms of scale and scope the largest. Amount of uprisings, this is when you're and Detroit. Both happened and the Kerner Commission looked at this, and said that this is actually rooted in the fundamental desire to have full inclusion American Society and that it's this notion that had as Robert, focus and a scholar who wrote about this in the contemporary moment, said it's not a attempt to overrun America but to alert America. That's something is very wrong and I think when we look at it today, you know it seems. A bit as an anomaly, I at the time Ferguson has time of Baltimore. There was a black president. I think many of us had kind of been lulled into this false sense of security of a a sort of colorblind society. That racism was over. No longer are people using the end where no longer is. The clan burning crosses on people, Yar People's yards. It's over, but in many ways is racism became more systematic or structural, more institutional and hidden, and so these issues still exists is that people don't realize that they're
Violence in Resistance
"Professor Howard. Thanks for coming on new jargon. Thank you for having me. Why did these protests happen? Well there's no one easy answer, but if I were to give an umbrella term to why they happen is that people feel that they are not receiving equal treatment under the law or in society, and they feel that all of the established means getting equal treatment have failed them. You mean in a way. They're sort of fed up and sick and tired, absolutely fed up in sick and tired I think this is something that people often forget when we think about not only the uprisings or the violent protests that happened in the past two or three years, but also looking historically that there are lots of preceding events that occur beforehand there. There were marches there protester letters of indignation. There were speeches given fun of City Councils, and for whatever reason those cries. Those grievances were gone unheeded unheard, and because of that people take to the streets, and it gets attention, and it's a very loud cry for help and for acknowledged professor. How can you just tell me about one protests from beginning to end? I would love so I'd like to start with kind of the protests. That's been nearest and dearest to my heart. It's the one that I've been researching the longest, and it also takes place in my hometown of Omaha. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six fourth of July weekend. There are a group of young people. In a parking lot of the Safeway Grocery store on North Twenty four straight. And this kind of an area where people congregate and it was. Evening. GOOP young people were setting off firefighters or firecrackers. A police officer comes. They begin to throw firecrackers at this police vehicle, the police kind of get scared and equipped takeoff they come back and forth, and this kind of sets it off people. See Police as indicative at this time of the state of unfair treatment, and oftentimes these police, public attractions are the catalysts for these uprisings, so over the course of three days young people go up and down North Twenty Fourth Street in the black enclave, and they set small fires. They break windows. They steal goods out of these stores, and the very much engaged in property, violence as protests, but meanwhile has this is going on. You have the mayor of the city Av Sorenson actually meeting with these youth activists listen to their grievances listening to what? What they feel is going on the community. And why love, starting off with Omaha is because Omaha had a long history, a civil rights activism prior to the nineteen sixty six engagement, and what was so notable is at the end double ACP, an urban league had been begging the state for years to open up an unemployment office on North, Twenty Fourth Street, and for years that desire for a building was met. You know was ignored, and by the end of the week of those three days of uprisings North Omaha got their unemployment office. While you know it's funny because I think the words are so charged when we think about uprisings or protests that end in violence that involves some aspect of violence on TV you hear about riots. Can you tell me a little bit about why you call them violent uprisings, and what you think of some of those other words? I mean in some ways. I think riot is pejorative, because it seems that when people use that term, it's divorced from the context in which people are participating at it seems as it's just want violence as a social and Beran, and not actually rooted in issues, and you don't violence approach as protests had along and storied history in the world, so if you think of Labor bread riots. In France in England. Through the green corn rebellion in the United States hey, mark an uprising working class people people without a lot of political capital engage in violent protests as a way to make their voices heard, and it seems that really in the nineteen sixties when blacks began to use this as a primary tactic in their. Repertoire of protest actions that really begins to be demonized in not lauded as you know the underclass kind of going up against those in power and so for me, I like to use rebellion or uprising, because I see these actions on a political.

P. either making critical medical supplies for front line workers battling the pandemic he's located in Alameda California so when you started this what kind of demand was there how difficult was it to keep up it was actually kind of challenging we've had quite a bit of demand and most of our material that we received and donated you know we've gotten people on the Facebook channel saying Hey we need here we don't have here and then we kind of split up our own web page and we've done Google forms trying to gauge what people need and we'll get responses like Hey we need the people to balance these people across the country that we can't get here so we try to connect to as many people as we can around the country it's been quite a challenge thanks Ian Ian Sorenson a volunteer with the group all bay area P.

Aromatic Dressing Featuring Paige Sorenson
"Today we're excited to sit down with page Sorenson as she talks to us about the process and benefits of aromatic dressing page. Thank you so much for coming in and talking with us today. We're so so happy to have you so happy to be here so this is a topic that I think a lot of people may be a little no more unfamiliar with. So how would you describe. Aromatic dressing Oh. I'm so excited to share its superfund aromatic. Dressy while I have to say I didn't come up with this I didn't design it. I learned it from a woman. Name of Vanessa Ovens. She's actually a top leader Indo Tara in Australia and I saw her speaking one day on stage and I just got chills all over my body because I knew what she was saying. Just lined up perfectly with me and my message and my life and my career and so so really just over all aromatic dressing is a a quick practice that you would do in the morning or or in the evening whenever you jump out of the shower and I think it's bigger than the oils and the actions however the oils are so important in this. Yes and and then you just take it like one body part at a time and I always start from so okay. Let me back up. So you'RE GONNA make a small mixture Mr so When you jump out I usually do fractionally coconut oil and I do some oil some of my favorite oils and just a couple of drops here and there? So you've got this fun. John Little Mixture to rub rub all of your body and I usually start with my legs and I moved my way upward and but the secret about it is. You're saying positive gophers to yourself. Okay how loud. And so I feel like aromatic. Dressing is super powerful. It has a lot of ways to involve golf healing in your life and acceptance radical acceptance and infusing love and goodness and all of that is just wrapped up with awesome oils. And so I just love it. I've been doing it for a while and I teach it all the time and I think it has some power. So did that even answer your question that you asked me. What was the question? How would you describe? Yeah yeah so it's very it's the funny thing is is when I teach people when I teach the crowd sometimes I can just see body language. It's awkward it's uncomfortable. You know a lot of times. People need to hear that they are. They allowed not even talk nice to themselves like that. Random new concept for people I know within the culture. Everyone's a little bit more progressive in that area. We're very you know into self care and self love but overall it's really fun to watch people experience it and then move into like a comfort level level where they're like. Oh my gosh this can really helped me. And so that's fun to watch the transformation with people so I love that and I love the fact that you brought up that some people are very very uncomfortable with saying Nice things to their body and this aromatic dressing making that space for people to give a little bit of love and honor to their body is such a beautiful thing. Yeah yeah absolutely. So how long have you been teaching and practicing aromatic dressing. So I think I learned about five years ago maybe four. I'm so bad with the numbers but I'm GonNa go oh with five and implemented it immediately and once I did it after a while I just knew it was just using from me I needed to. I share it with everyone around me and so like I said before. I've taught a lot of people to do it. Probably a lot of women respond to it really well all because they forget like I just feel like a lot of women get stuck in the Rut of taking care of everyone around them they forget to take care of themselves and so oh I feel like this is such a really good daily practice that takes less than two minutes and has a positive effect on the rest of your day and that is great. And it's so quick and so easy another aspect where you have used this aromatic dressing is in your work as a fashion stylist and now the fashion world definitely has a bad reputation for you know. Low body image and difficulty with positive body image. So how has air matic dressing and how essential oils helped you promote that positive body image in this kind of toxic environment. Great Question Love It. Yeah I get a lot of questions like fashion styling and oils. I don't really. I understand how they crossover. That's kind of the beauty of Dough Tara. In general I feel like Doh Tara can and essential oils. General can just work their way into so so many interesting avenues in life and so when oils and fashion crossover for me it was just. It was magic. It was magic for my life so my basic fashion philosophy or my foundation is identifying who you are on the inside and then expressing it on the outside side. Okay so just a quick background on me. When I was little I I knew I had talent in fashion and I just I I knew like I think it was eighty nine. I knew I had something where I could express myself through clothing and it worked really well and I started ready to rely on that probably just as much as verbal expression while so I've always really relied on my clothing and sharing who I am and showing up and making connections based on what I'm wearing so whenever I enter room I always think to myself. What can I say or how can influence this room before four? I opened my mouth. So that's kind of my foundation is if you can identify who you are. Then you have an easier time expressing who you are on the outside so with that ad in oils and mental health and really being preventative with with you know putting bad things into your body or trying to just have a healthy lifestyle overall oils play into this and so many areas. I mean I've have done things where I do a lot of really fun campaigns on social media but Fun things like right now. I'm wearing a bright yellow shirt so I would post my outfit and be like what oil would would you pay with this one royal matches this what oil you connect with if you look at my outfit or you know just somehow connect that together and then with my profession nightdress a lot of public speakers and right now I'm actually addressing a lot of authors so people who are using their words and putting it down on paper and having having an influence and effect on you know their fan base or who. They're speaking to and so lots of times before we go out on stage so all dress and style all them for their for their event and I always take into consideration. Who are they? What's their identity? What's their message? How can align the clothing to elevate their influence and so with that I utilize oils as well so before any of my clients? Go out on stage. I'll be like do. We need to get some balance on you. Or let's get some peppermint or past tents on you. I always recommend past tense and balanced together. If you are public speaking it just does beautiful thing. So I- infused oils oils in every angle of my life. I use them daily. I share them daily and I love allowing people around me to experience them even if it's their first time like most people. I'm I always offer lemon. Do you have the senior water you know. Because it's like so wonderful to drink addicted so I try and I mean I'm not not trying very hard. It just naturally comes to my life where do oils fit in. How can I elevate this human and help them express who they are

"Ability in the intelligence to do it I love those two safety say have dental Sorenson's made so many big plays to in the last two games I don't think the safeties are playing great yeah they are they definitely are and you're right honey badger does have kind of that trolley Troy Apollo maillot we just talked about can move around you never know where he is all right I'm going to coach bill okay I'm gonna send you buddy I will not now that how they do that with us too obvious okay the hell with him I'm going with Steve's Bagnall of all right the defensive coordinator I am you know because of my tattoo buddy yeah yeah it's a struggle is going to have to have a creative game plan you know one Hey to what you're talking about with Tyrone Matthew gonna to be smart and disguises right to trip things up for Kyle Shanahan so he can't get in the get a bead on to like all when they're in this formation the pie in this defense and then he draws up some play that just screws it over you got to be careful of that so we've got to be creative but yet sound at the same time because within being that creative in like you know to what we're just talking about my my the Tyra Matthew jumping all over the place as you know you don't wanna disguising so much to where Hey you're responsible for this gap in the run game but you're back you're acting like you're playing free safety should be down here and also any let up a fifteen yard run so there's gonna be a delicate balance there for him between creativity and being sound and yeah so I'm gonna go was this bag I think the line backers for the forty Niners are going to be a huge key to this new could pick any one of the yeah I'm gonna go with Drake Greenlaw okay because they wouldn't be here without him right he made the play in the Seattle gays adopting Jacob Hollister there on the goal line and that's why they're here now I have no doubt about that that play he made in he just seems to come up and and make some a player to every game that kind of stands out so I'm gonna pick him as my linebacker but I think all three of those lines I'm backers are really important for the forty Niners against Patrick my homes a what he can do well and and yet to Europe do I mean I don't know we think that that would be probably the guy they use this file right that's okay yeah you got to have a I almost picked him to for that same reason you got to have the spy who doesn't fall for the head fake Okey Doke instead and go flailing by and that was the first domino that fell yeah twenty seven yard touchdown account when he does the full turn you have to have a spy who is capable closing the deal yeah forty Niners do that I dated else I got that right last for me and I got I gotta give a shout the big cap because we did a draft on Friday of the most likely MVP candidates other than quarterbacks and this is a smart pick and I think this is a critical guy MVP or otherwise me call Hartman I has a what he can do in the return game right hello look at what he did in the in the game against the the Texans are down twenty four nothing he gets a big return yeah that contribute so that on that fire that got them moving and you yep Desmond Howard I think back to that Super Bowl the Packers in the patriots you know you get a couple of big returns you flipped the field position at what you make it easier for Pat and hope to get a touchdown and it's it's one of those things is one of those little pin pricks did you just those things that can make you feel like it's not my day and if you're not able to make that tackle in the return game to get a cheap touch down to get a short field that's the kind of things to be hard for the forty nine server com when you know used to be in the Superbowl if you fell down seven or ten points you just cut a lawyer in the planning and everybody I feel like this one could be that way because they feel so evenly matched going in like I feel like if somebody gets up early there's a chance that it's just going to deflate for the team the falls behind I think both teams are mentally tough enough to overcome it yeah but it reminds me of those days where the team that got that first big move that first big break that first big lead right it was game over I I don't I I do feel like there's more of a sense than that this year than normal I I you're right I wouldn't bet on that I do think it's going to be a close football game but I I don't know why but I guess it's because of you know both offenses have areas of dominance where they can take over the game and I'm I'm with you there's a part of me that almost said Sir and because it yeah I don't know if either one of these teams will be either come out if they get too far behind early I'll tell you feel like that if that happens it's going to be the Kansas city is going to be that team is going to be dominating don't you know I think because you have a sense that the forty Niners should be the team that would be I I don't know I think you go either way I think I'm running game running game is there for the forty Niners that when they run that trap play on third Nate and scored a touchdown for the first point to the game against the Packers in the NFC championship game and the collective responses it's done yeah I mean yeah that if if the chiefs cannot stop the running game and they go down the field and score a touchdown in the first couple the drives and have that's it that's what I feel like the chiefs because the chiefs fall behind like they've done any SO two playoff games they're not coming back it's a forty no not against this team I I agree with you I don't think they will either think how by ten or more well maybe ten or more I think it's the big point is of the get up but if they get behind and that type of lead to like what we've talked about already I mean you're just talking about a front for who down I was like okay there's no worry about the power run game at all they're gonna throat every play and we just have to get more homes in their front for if you just gonna let them think about that all day long there they're gonna ruin the game all right that's our draft for today good job one good job getting guys that you get the the trophy there is no trophy when we return tonight is opening that used to be media day regardless it is a cluster of fun we're gonna talk

The Mysterious Kidney Disease Striking Central America
"A mysterious form of kidney disease has killed tens of thousands of people in Central America many of them are relatively young farmworkers in their thirties and forties kidney failure is now the second leading cause of death in Nicaragua and El Salvador the new disease has also turned up in hot humid agricultural communities in India and Sri Lanka some researchers now say it may be linked to global warming and Pierce Jason Beaubien reports in an editorial in the current issue of the New England journal of medicine doctor Cecilia Sorenson calls this new mysterious form of kidney failure the Sentinel disease in the era of climate change probably wouldn't have occurred if it weren't for the extreme global temperatures that we're seeing Sorenson from the university of Colorado has been studying chronic kidney disease of unknown origin also known as C.

So there's a there's there's ways that we can spread our wings as opposed to a really proud of that tradition as EPO. So if you have a passion, and it doesn't turn the company backwards and actors one or more of our core values, we get the green light to go. And my first step out of my Korhola was the leaf program and leave stands for leading environmental awareness for our future. And it's a passion for passions for projects. It's it's totally not paid. It's all volunteer force. And I was given the the lead lead link role. So we have the chance to have our advocates out in our community and engage our community with all kinds of services, we team up with nonprofits we team up with our local infrastructure like a rebel Serb Republic services southwest gas, and we have our birthday festivities on board.

Our opponents in maybe changing our lifestyle habits on insides Apple's campus, and we are able to engage agents so much that they can take those practices from campus to their homes as well. And maybe teach their children the same same practices that we hopefully can teach them on campus as well. So not we know that not everybody comes to the plate with the same kind of education or training. So some know about sustainability some don't so we have to make sure that those pieces are built head, and we provide those for our advocacy program as those that's great tell us a little bit about Tony Shay.

Why the cost of airfares will never make any sense
"Listener, Jeff Sorenson has encountered even more crazy seeming airfares he found. A one way economy ticket from demo- into Seattle with a stop in Phoenix, and it was one hundred fifty dollars. Same exact flight from join to Phoenix alone costs hundred and sixty two dollars. So the airline will fly him fourteen hundred miles farther for ten dollars less to be honest. I have never understood airline pricing structures. Well, let's try to figure them out. I when you travel by bus or train the ticket typically costs more the longer the distance you're going, but with airlines says industry. Analysts Henry heartfelt at atmosphere research distance really doesn't come into it. It doesn't cost an airline twice. As much to fly you twice as far not even close. Once the plane is in the air at cruising altitude the cost for additional fuel is pretty marginal. Seth Kaplan at airline weekly says these hard to fathom fares are common on airlines own websites and also travel sites like Expedia. There are times when you will pay more to fly from Portland to San Francisco than from Washington to Hong Kong. Kaplan says tickets price at any given moment isn't based on the airlines cost to fly you from here to there. But on how many other people have already bought tickets to fly that route how many seats are left how long before the day of travel. They look at empty airline seats. When flight takes off kind of the way a bakery. Looks at bread at the end of the day. Spoilage airlines call it the airlines gonna take something for Nazi rather. In get nothing at all for it in the end, which determines airline fares is a complicated. Balance of supply and demand says Henry heartfelt. And how much competition there is between airlines to service that supply and demand on a moment to moment basis airlines or the industry that pioneered revenue management how to price each individual seat on each flight to extract the maximum economic value. So let's go back to Jeff Sorensen's flights where it would have cost less to fly from Des Moines to Seattle through Phoenix than it would to just fly to Phoenix heartfelt says there could be a few reasons for that Des Moines to Seattle may actually have more competition on it. There may be multiple airlines that can take you there through different hubs. And it's possible there could be a budget airline. But for a flight starting in Des Moines and terminating in Phoenix or some other hub airport. There may be only a couple airlines competing. So ticket prices will likely be higher heartfelt says in the nineteen ninety s several airlines actually tried to price their tickets based in part on the. Distance travelled. It lasted about a nanosecond longer distance route that has more competition just has that much more battling going on between carriers for those customers. So it's best not to try to think logically. When you're looking at air because Bill only drive yourself crazy, which is not recommended when preparing to
Marriott hotel temp says she was fired after speaking to The Chronicle
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Mary hotel. Temp says she was fired after speaking to the chronicle by Rowland Lee from business.

Carmelo said callous was one of more than a dozen workers who haven't been paid on time when Francke came to the line and took my name. She told me that I couldn't work anymore. I asked why. And she said because I took my lunch break to speak with reporters. Kelly said in Spanish, I told her how is this possible? This is unjust. I was speaking with my friend Carmelo in. If I knew that I couldn't go out during my lunch break, I wouldn't have. She said Veronica told me, she didn't know those were her orders. They fired me unjustly, and I have the right to speak. She. Said they're trying to intimidate me. Environmental service partners has not responded to the chronicles inquiries about alleged labor violations since Wednesday on Friday woman who answered the company's phone said, she wasn't authorized to speak and said, the company would respond later, we suggest you contact ESP with any concerns about their pay or employment practices.
