Changing the Narrative with Rita Bautista
"K.. Brita hello welcome to come on Bama. How are you? I'm doing great. Thanks so much for having me today. I'm excited we've been talking for like thirty minutes. Now. You have an awesome stories. Let's dive into tell us who you are what your heritage. So my name is read about that and I am a as used to describe it. I'm Honduran my parents were both from Buddha's but I was born here in New Orleans and raised between New Orleans in Baltimore and I currently live in Houston. So I've had the best of all worlds. Yeah. Headed your parents arrive to to New Orleans. Oh my gosh. So it's interesting both my parents ended up in two different places. My mom ended up in Baltimore with visa the. First Ten than she came illegally, and then she came back again legally and then my dad came here with a visa to new. Orleans. which is a huge population of hundred people for all those under Daniels listened to me there's a huge population Chiquita banana used to be headquartered there at the story's pretty rich and dynamic I think I should probably tell it one day, but it's a really interesting story like two lane. University has lot of really thick ties in into hundreds like they actually have a whole bunch of like less Stella's from the Mayan Ruins. Actually. In the nineteen hundreds went to Tulane University went to Honduras and made copies of them and they're sitting in New Orleans on at the military base. Okay. Fact very attacked. So how is it that it's a big population in your let I mean, it's not random, but it's like not your big cities are right. Well, for anybody WHO's been to New Orleans they have that like has at European small town feel and the climate really tropical. You know if it's if you're going to be close to home, you might as well be host in temperature to but like I said that to keep a banana used to be housed in or their headquarters was in new, ORLEANS? So since the ladder leads bananas in Lewis were also I guess they were reporting to New Orleans everybody who was coming over from Honduras to our liens found out about it because of the Banana Trade So interesting to get I don't be sick of that. But again, that's Your Dad arrives there and then your mom is in Baltimore and then they meet somewhere between. So they've actually met in hunters for the second time. Yeah. My mom back two. The second time, and then while she's in Honduras with my brother, she got married in Baltimore and then it didn't work. She got divorced in the ends up in under his an that second go round. She meets my dad in Honduras and she comes back to Baltimore with my brother wants all you your residency came out and everything she went back and then my dad ends up in New Orleans in. He's like you need to come check this out. This is like hundred number two like you know come visit me and sure enough she goes down there they fall in love with each other than this beautiful child was born.
Some Conferences Are Determined: There Will Be College Football This Fall
"There There will will be be college college football football this this fall. fall. Maybe Maybe that that is is the the message message this this week week from from some some top top football football schools schools and and conferences. conferences. It It comes comes after after two two powerhouse powerhouse conferences. conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 announced they were canceling their full seasons because of the Corona virus. NPR's Greg Allen reports how colleges that are planning to play hope to protect the health of their athletes. Even many hard core college football fans are skeptical how Khun well over 100 people on a typical team training play without spreading the Corona virus, possibly shutting down the season this week, three of the top conferences, the SEC, the SEC and the Big 12 said their plans this fall to play and do so safely. John Thrasher is president of Florida State University, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And what we frankly want to send is a message to some of the other schools that may be teetering on whether or not to play football. We think it's a bit in the best interest of our student athletes. For us to play football. We could do it safely and we can do it productively for them for fans, athletes and the multi $1,000,000,000 sports entertainment complex built around college football things looked bleak Tuesday. Two major conferences, The Big 10 in the Pac 12 canceled their fall schedules because of the uncertainty and health risk surrounding the Corona virus. The announcement by the remaining three of the power five conferences that they would have a fall season came after athletes began a hashtag. We want to play movement on social media. At Florida State Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton says he believes training and playing with regular testing and medical protocols in place. Maybe safer than not playing. You talk about 18 or 22 year old Just quarantine at the house. That's unrealistic. There's really there's so many other things that you know God, I'm going to go do which is not safe. So being here with my team, and all of us together is the safest forth. The college conferences are pushing back the start of their seasons to give them extra time to get ready and perhaps learn from the experiences of other sports. Putting players inside a bubble like the N BA has done in Orlando isn't feasible for student athletes who live on campus and have to attend classes. University of Miami coach Manny Diaz believes college football can learn from the English soccer leagues, which resumed play in June. Without fans with so much at stake. He believes his athletes will be careful. They're aware that they've got to keep their bubble small. They understand the value of what a mask doesn't and who that protection If you're around people who don't have mass on, you've got to find another place to be, but with all that there's risk and going ahead with the college football season. One concern that was reportedly a factor in the decision of some conferences to postpone play is new information about a heart condition. My card is that has been linked to the Corona virus. It's an inflammation of the heart that can lead to long term problems. Announcing its decision to play the Big 12 conference, said any players who test positive for the Corona virus would receive an E K g echocardiogram, cardiac Emery and further heart tests before returning to play. Gabe Feldman, the director of the Sports Law program at Tulane University in New Orleans, says If the schools are transparent and take the right precautions he thinks they can play. Every school in the athletic department has to be very clear with all of their athletes. About what the risks are and what the unknowns are. And then the athletes have to have a choice. It's one thing to play. But can there be fans in the stadium? University of Florida athletic director Scott Strickland says he hopes so We want to be on a have fans, and we hope we're in a position to do that. But you see, this is the NFL season now starts earlier than ours, and A lot of NFL teams and still have a made determinations. Yet that could be the riskiest. Part of all some schools were opposing plans that would limit attendance to 25% of a stadium's capacity, which would still bring together a huge crowd of 20,000 or more cheering, screaming fans.

Why Shame Is A Bad Public Health Tool Especially In A Pandemic
"Believe me I get it. I'm frustrated and angry to. After all, it's been four months of this. We know the right things to do. And when you see someone wearing a mask or groups of people hanging out close together, it's easy to get mad, even if in all fairness. Once or twice. Open defiance at this Castle Rock Colorado restaurant large crowds, no social distancing, and there's some news coverage right now. That caters to this anger. You know what I'm talking about. Many Americans are out and about on this memorial day visiting newly reopened businesses seems from the unofficial kickoff to the summer showing many Americans not practicing social distancing measure. I'm telling you to wear a mask where a damn ask, but this Kinda thing anger public shaming the urge to yell at people who aren't doing the right things. That can be precisely the opposite of productive. Yeah, as the researcher I've been. Watching all this unfold through that Lens Julia Marcus is an epidemiologist and professor at the Harvard. Medical School, she said he's HIV prevention. And for scientists Julia, who work in HIV or sexual health or even substance abuse? They know that shame can be a huge barrier when it comes to public health, and in these first few months of the Cova pandemic I was watching this same pattern happen where you know, these kind of absolutist public health messages and moralistic undertones were potentially contributing to what became rampant shaming of people who were flouting public health guidelines or doing things that people felt. Felt were high risk, and when we shame people for their risky behavior in a way that distracts us from where risk is really happening, which is typically much less visible like in prisons and nursing homes and food, processing plants, and those don't inspire the same moral outrage. I think for two reasons one. They're not right in front of our faces, but also to we don't think of those as people having fun and a pandemic which I think people really upset. Matt rage, Julia says might feel good to act on in the moment, but it's not gonNA solve our biggest problems right now. I find that taking that rage home, and really screaming alone has been very helpful for me to. Do that as well or you know my rage these days first of all I would say that knows no bounds, but also. To be honest. My regions more directed at institutional failures than individual ones. To episode Julia Marcus on the role. Shame plays in public health crises. We talk masks. School reopenings in the long road ahead. I'm Maddie's defy, and this is shortwave daily science podcast from NPR. Julia Marcus has written a bunch of great pieces for the Atlantic about why. Shame is not helpful right now and how we can do things better. She's looked this when it comes to mask wearing social distancing and how we open college campuses, we talked about all those things, but the first thing to say here is that there is a fine line between public shaming and some positive forms of peer pressure. I, yeah I WANNA make a distinction here between social norms and shaming I. think social norms are very powerful and. That can be one of the best ways I think to change. Health behavior is like well. Everybody else is doing it so I'm going to do it because it's more like i. want to feel good when I go in the grocery store and I'm not gonNA. Feel great if I'm the only one not wearing a mask, so, but there's a difference between making people feel bad about their risky behavior and making people feel good about engaging and protective behaviors as a way of like becoming part of What the new social norm is Marie right? Right Okay Julius. You've written a bunch of great pieces for the Atlantic. Let's talk about your most recent one I. It's you know how to not open colleges this fall. You started out by describing an email that went out to students at Tulane University earlier this month July seventh. What what happened there? Yeah I mean I I I don't WanNa. Pick on two lane here. Becher, that was it just an example of some of the communications that were starting to see toward students who are on campus this summer and have been having some parties. And there was an email that we're not to students that really condemned stat behavior as disrespectful, indefensible, dangerous selfish, and made it very clear in bold all caps that hosting parties of more than fifteen people would result in suspension or expulsion from the university and that if students wanted the school to remain open, they needed to be personally responsible. I'm in their behavior and When a university says, we will hold you accountable for having a party, and actually there will be dire swift punishment when inevitably there is an outbreak at a party. Students are going to be terrified to disclose that they were there. And students have now said this at the University of Connecticut were interviewed and surveyed about what kind of thing is going to work for them what their concerns are about the fall. And they universally said we. We are early close to universally said we're really afraid of how infection and risky behavior are going to be stigmatized such that we outbreaks will not be able to be controlled, so there needs to be appropriate consequences for putting your community at risk, and I would never say otherwise but that needs to be balanced against the need for public health efforts to be separate from discipline. And we've already seen contact tracing start to break down outside of campuses, because people are afraid to talk about having been at event that that they know is something they should not have been doing yeah. So. You know kind of following that thread. The part of this pandemic that's been hardest for a lot of people is is social distancing in in several of your pieces you wrote about how a lot of the advice especially in the beginning was almost like an abstinence based approach like stay home. See Nobody which absolutely made sense kind of at the. The beginning, but tell me about why. That approach doesn't necessarily make sense for the long-term well asking people to abstain from all social contact indefinitely or until we've scaled up. An effective vaccine is just not going to be a sustainable public health strategy, and I think now our messaging has evolved a bit especially as there's been an accumulation of evidence around. The risk is highest like what's settings or higher risk, in which ones are lower risk, but I think we continue to still have a tendency toward absolutist messaging and I think that our goal should be to two inch. People tour to a place where they are living their lives in a way that addresses all aspects of their health, while trying to keep tr- risk of transmission low, and so one way that that could play out is encouraging outdoor activities, especially in spacious areas, opening up more outdoor space for people, and there's been a tendency to close beaches and close parks where people gather, but. But I actually think doing the opposite on could could be helpful, but the essential point is. We can't stay in our homes forever and many people couldn't stay in their homes for the last few months because they were working sure, but it's clear from other areas of public health that asking people to abstain from something that they fundamentally need or strongly desire is not an effective public health strategies, so we have to find ways of making our messaging more nuanced, that allows people to get what they need to be able to live sustainably while keeping the risk of transmission low until you there. There are examples of nuanced messaging from others accessible public health campaigns. Right I. Mean You work on HIV? Can you give me an example of that? Yeah, so we you know we don't tell people don't have sex. Because that's the best way to not get HIV, we may save the safest thing you can do to avoid HIV transmission is not have sex, but we understand that many people are going to have sex, and that it's a you know a part of a healthy life, and so here are some safer ways to have sex, both in terms of certain sexual acts in in terms. Terms of protection different ways you can protect yourself and you know becomes a more nuanced message, but it's much more sustainable for people and realistic and the long term, and it also acknowledges people's basic human needs right, and there's also this idea that talking about ways to reduce risk encourages people to take those risks, even though from a public health standpoint. We know that isn't true. So I'm wondering Julia like. Why do people hold onto this concern? Like what is this really about yeah I, mean this is definitely not new. It comes up a lot. I think especially around drug, use and sex. And I think the reason it especially comes up in those settings is that those are behaviors that we have a lot of moral judgments about particularly in this country, and there's this kind of moral outrage that happens when we think about people engaging in risky, which is often pleasurable, behavior, sex, drug use, and these days going to the beach like. it's kind of playing out in this new way now with social contact and partying and people having a good time in a pandemic, which it's actually a public health win when we find ways to support people in enjoying their lives, and and getting their basic social or sexual needs, met while remaining a safest possible, and you've made the point that we've. We've already seen this play out with the corona virus, public health officials, hesitating to give people detailed ways to protect themselves instead of avoiding risk altogether, I mean I remember. We reported early on in this pandemic when Dr Burks of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said. We don't want people to get this artificial sense of protection because they're behind a mask. This lack of consistent messaging is one of the reason that a lot of people still aren't convinced that masks are helpful, so you know. Julia, how do public health officials effectively reach? Those people yeah I mean I. Think in general we always see some resistance to any new public health intervention, condoms, and you know pre exposure prophylaxis for each V. I mean every intervention that comes out. There's resistance. There's challenges with implementation. There are moral concerns you know. This is all kind of par for the course, but I think what's new here and a bit different is not necessarily just the polarization which we do, see an Ciaran things like vaccines, but the politicization. Politicization I don't think there has been I can't think of an example where a sitting president has flouted public health recommendations and I think that that has created kind of a politicized around masks. That wouldn't have necessarily been there and so how do we overcome that? And how do we reach people I think again it comes back to hearing people's concerns, acknowledging them, and then working to overcome those barriers in our messaging and I. Think there are some good examples of that there have been a couple of great mask campaigns that have come out of California acknowledging that people dislike wearing them and acknowledging the reasons why people dislike wearing them. And I would guess that they are more effective in reaching certain populations than campaigns that that are more focused on this. Just wear ask. It's really easy kind of messaging. Yeah and don't you care about your community and don't you want to not kill people and That kind of messaging is like early days of AIDS. Messaging around condoms that I think was not as successful as the messaging that really focused on what the barriers were, and how people could overcome them. Yeah, yeah, with all this stuff that we've been talking about colleges masks. You know keeping safe distance. It's pretty tough because the stakes feel so high like this is really a nasty virus, and when we see people, you know not doing the right things, the instinct there to shame them to get mad for a lot of us at first instinct and I. I guess it's just that we need to take some patients to push past them. Yeah, I mean I, think it's really. Valid to feel angry about what's happening right now, and for people who are not necessarily taking care of themselves or their community and putting other people at risk. It's very frustrating to see, but I think especially for public health professionals. It's on us to do the work to avoid the shaming and the anger and the moralizing in our messaging. Because we've learned that that doesn't work in other areas of health and really try to take the time to craft messaging. That is going to be more effective. Julia Marcus.

Where Did The Coronavirus Start? Virus Hunters Find Clues In Bats
"All Right Emily Kuang Wave Reporter. Animal Lover Unabashed Animal Lover. It's true you and I both know that bats are amazing. That is not up for dispute on shortwave. They're important for pollinating flowers dispersing seeds. They catch bugs the same ones that bite us and eat up some of our crops but bats also harbor some of the toughest known zoonotic diseases. That's right the rabies virus the Marburg virus the Hendra and Nipah viruses. The Abullah virus outbreak in West Africa was traced to a bat colony. All these viruses find what's called a natural reservoir in bats meaning the viruses live in that host without harming it. Do We know why that is? It's a very interesting question so I used to say a million dollar question now as as a billion dollar question Lynn Fouling says it might have to do with the fact that bats are the only mammal that's adapted for flight because during flight. The body temperature goes to up to all the way to forty two degrees. That's super high. Forty two degrees Celsius is almost one hundred eight degrees Fahrenheit and their heartbeat goes up to a thousand beats per minute. They're burning a ton of energy flying several hours a day and this creates toxic free radicals that damage their cells but Linda's research has shown that bats have also evolved this ability to repair and minimize that cellular damage. Kind of counterstrike and those same defensive. Abilities may help them not only tolerate flight but also to fight infectious diseases in a way that the human body simply cannot so the essentially. Have this like super effective? Immune response rights so while our immune systems can get overwhelmed from fending off these viruses. He thinks bats don't our hypothesis is best has evolved. A different method is to get the balanced right for defense and Torrance and that famous virus to live peacefully with Bass and they're able to safely house these viruses in their bodies and not get sick from them. Got It so. Let's talk about why scientists think this particular corona virus could have come from bats. Well they got a big clue from the start so in early. January Chinese scientists were able to quickly sequence the viruses entire genome and then they published it online from that scientists begin to study the virus in-depth and around this time researchers at Wuhan Institute of Raji in China compared its genome to a library of known viruses right and found a ninety six percent match with Corona virus samples taken from Horseshoe Bats in Union. Yes the same kinds of bats that were natural reservoirs for the original SARS virus that broke out in two thousand three and this led them to believe that this new corona virus likely came from bats to right and from a genetic standpoint ninety six percent match. Sounds like a lot but that four percent can make a big difference exactly that that four percent difference is actually a pretty wide distance in evolutionary timing. It could be even decades. This is Robert Gary Ablett at Tulane University. And while that one paper says there's a ninety six percent match with bats that extra four percent to him suggests some other viral material may have gotten mixed in from another animal and that other animal could have even transmitted the virus to humans right. This is called an intermediate host or an in-between host correct. But when it comes to this corona virus scientists aren't sure if there was an intermediate host between bats and humans and if so they're not sure what the intermediate host could be. There are theories Robert and fellow. Researchers have hypothesized. This virus could be a blend of viruses from two different animals bats and something else. An early scientific studies suggest it could be this animal called Penguin this scaly ant eater vulnerable to illegal wildlife trade and virus penguins or some other animal. That has a similar receptor binding domain. So to buyers getting together recombining to make up a new Sars KOGI team but the important point to all this is that virus hunters haven't come to a definitive conclusion about the chain of transmission from animals to humans about the involvement of penguins and baths or any other host animal. Not on the level of proof. They need right like the genetic level. Yes we don't know definitively which animal or animals this came from. It will take time to figure out but we do know. This came from animals a bunch of scientists in mid-february publish this big letter in the Journal. Lancet saying evidence overwhelmingly points to wildlife as the origin for this corona virus. And Roberts stands by that too. I can tell you that this is a product of nature. It's not a virus. That has arisen in a laboratory by any scientists purposely manipulating something that that was then released onto a cup like that. That just didn't happen. Because if you look at the actual genome which Robert has done the evidence. Isn't there okay so you said earlier. While speaking to the researcher in Singapore that it took a decade to find out the actual origin of the virus that causes SARS the original SARS. Do we know how long it could take to figure out where this new corona virus came from. Oh Mattie I wished I had an answer for you. We don't it all depends on funding and resources. Doesn't it all gone and time like I keep saying? Throughout this whole episode investment in virus hunting right expanding the zoonotic studies to figure out the transmission chain between animals and people. Because if we know that we are armed with information that can help us. Prevent future outbreaks. Peter doc he's the President of the US based nonprofit ego health alliance and he says that even if bats are the likely origin they are not to blame. It's no but's it's uh it's it's and what we do to Bass that drives this. Pandemic risks like wildlife trade and Food and agriculture practices or are close proximity to animals in densely populated areas one of the poster things about funding that. We're actually behind. These pandemics is that gives those the power to do something about it. We don't need to get rid about. We don't need to do anything with that. We've just got to leave them alone. Let me get on doing the good. They do flipping around at night

I was a bartender. I was a waitress. I painted houses. I sold vacuum cleaners. I had no idea and I thought I just finally settled on some job and make enough money to pay my rent. Maybe basic cable.

It wasn't to do anything other than a free myself up from this heaviness that I was carrying around and I just wanted to be honest I thought was the worst thing that can happen. I can lose my career. I did. I lost my career. The show was cancelled after six years. Without even telling me I read it in the paper. The phone didn't ring for three years. I know offers. Nobody wanted to touch me at all yet. Getting letters from kids that almost committed suicide but did it because of what I did and I realized that I had a purpose and it wasn't just about me and it wasn't about celebrity but I felt like I was being punished and it was a bad time I was angry. I was sad and then I was offered a talk show and the people that offered me the talk show tried to sell it. EMO- stations did want to pick it up. Most people don't want to buy it because they thought nobody would watch me really when I look back on it I wouldn't change a thing.

That's that's what's gotten me to this place at all live in fear I'm free.

"Oklahoma are buried at the gravesites he left each one of those soldiers arose rock, which is the state rock of Oklahoma to thank them for their service pretty special. In addition, we've got a question from Brendon chase. He's a student at Tulane university, right here New Orleans, he hails from Boston, Massachusetts, and he called in with a question about d day he asks during the invasion, why weren't the beachheads attacked beforehand, like by ship Araj by plane rather than sending in troops with the plane. So let me turn that maybe to Jeff Birnbaum one you handle that one for us. So this is actually a really complicated question because there was a lot, a lot of factors going into the invasion. And so what Brennan is this riding isn't necessarily possible with the way that the German troops are, are sort of stationed at the. Time of the invasion. So in there haven't had been attempts before to actually to bomb to do other things in on the beaches in the area, and they weren't successful to well-guarded. So one of the things that they start as much as year before they actually. Conduct. The invasion is sort of a campaign of deception. So trying to throw the Germans off of where they're actually going to be because otherwise it isn't really possible to actually surprise them into successful. And it's everything you might think seems like a spy movie is a little bit absurd. I mean there there's tanks that are like rubber that are like blown up in so the German, see these tanks. My, my favorite is something told Rupert. It's a paradigm me that they would would drop in it looks like it looks like a pair of trooper falling from the sky. But to us, it's, it's actually just a piece of muslin this stuff to look like a person, so scarecrow falling from the sky base pretty much. And so these are the types of things that they start to do. There's there's double agents. There's fake radio broadcasts and other things to get the Germans thinking that they're going to attack somewhere else that they're going to invade through another part of Europe. And so, and that's all comes down to the fact that it wasn't possible. Otherwise they had to be caught off guard. They had to see it coming. And so that was the only way it was really going to happen. So it wasn't really possible just kind of drop in there and. As well as being an endeavor that relied on masterful, tactical, and strategic planning on huge amounts of manpower, American British Canadian trillion forces subterfuge, deception mind games were big part of that. I think it was on your site where I learned that, you know, they'd announce on various radio, frequencies, particularly to French resistance figures active in France to try to sabotage things, they'd say, well, they'd send snippets of poetry and opera songs and other things as code, but would flood the airwaves with this, most of which ninety plus percent of it had nothing to do with the French resistance. It was just kind of fake out the German, so that when warnings came from Germans bys saying, hey, there's been a lot of chatter. We think something is up. They had sent out that message someone time almost the boy to call wolf, Walter Isaacson. You've done a lot of looking at technology espionage. Right. How important was that to making sure both the Norman? D conquest. I guess the reverse takeover of France by the allies. But also the greater the great were effort would be successful. It was not only absolutely crucial to the war effort. It's the moment win firepower in war is replaced by information, technology and computing power, because what happens when you're talking about a week going the fool the Germans into thinking maybe we're gonna do Calais, not norm and deal, maybe even through Norway. They were trying to do it. What happens is a group of scientists who, don't get enough credit for it, because it was kept secret for a long time or meeting, and Bletchley parking one Alan turing is there that breaking the German enigma code. They billed colossus. It was called, and it was two thousand four hundred vacuum tubes. It is a great computer and they're able to break the German, wartime code. And they know that Hitler doesn't think it's going to be enormous. Windy. And so they do this disinflation campaign, partly because we hit invented the computer and then later, we invent the Tomich bomb and its technology.

Let Curiosity Lead You
"Let your curiosity lead. You when is the last time you were genuinely curious about something what was it about? What did you find for the answers? How did it change your life? Let yourself be curious explore new things in may bring you to exactly where you're always looking for for the past few years. I let my curiosity lead me to new opportunities out of never dreamed of and I'm gonna get to that in a little bit. But for right now, I want to challenge you at this moment at this second to think about something that you are truly curious about go. Find out some more information on that one thing within the next week, it stirs something in you that could change your entire life. Give yourself permission to be creative as a pass division. One. Does sport athlete at Tulane university? I played both football and baseball and time management was absolutely crucial in my life. Because I didn't have a lot of free time. This experience taught me the discipline to maximize my entire day to have the maximum productivity. However, it did not allow me to be very creative with my thinking. During college had a curiosity about building apps. This led to create him first startup was able to build fundraise and launch an app this launch. My entrepreneurial journey said Monteilh life on a completely different path than originally anticipated. I always thought that I was going to be a lawyer in got into law school, but through creating this app, I knew that I had something that was stirring, passionate me. I was willing to put that on hold are not even pursued anymore. Just so I have the opportunity. To pursue my passion. This alternate launch my journey on a complete different path, which is generally made me the happiest I've ever been. The way that I even got to the point where I was able to come up with this business idea was that I was part of a business fraternity called alpha Kappa sigh, and I had one of the brothers come up at one of our meetings in say for all the entrepreneurial spirits out here. I want you to come up with a new idea everyday thirty days. So right now right now in this moment, I wanna challenge you the next thirty days to come up with a new idea every single day. This will be challenging most of your ideas are going to be absolutely terrible. But by the end, I bet you will come up with one gym or even more worth exploring. Challenge yourself to come up with the answers. If there's one thing I've learned about the adult foiled is that most people truly do not know what they are doing. They either have developed systems processes to help them get to the essence quickly and with his little friction as possible. We can find answers to any question. We have right now seconds. We just have to take the time to find the answers knowledge is power. You just have to find the time to go and get that knowledge all of us have the same amount of time one hundred sixty eight hours in a week. How are you spending that time maybe that means you sleep a little less? Maybe that means you don't want to must TV, but all of us have a hundred sixty eight hours a week. I challenge you to be more creative. And how you spend some of that time, for example, back when I was in college one of my good friends challenged me to read more books because he's told me what do all billionaires have in common. Billionaires read on average two hours every single day. That means they're reading more than than anyone else. They're more knowledgeable. They're constantly searching for more and more knowledge that will help their business decisions. So what I started to do was as I began to work out. I begin the listen to podcasts two books. So that as I was working my mind, also working, myself physically. And so I was getting the best of both worlds, especially when it came to my different curiosities. If there's something that I wanna learn now, I'll listen to a book are listen to a podcast in the same way that you can go and Google search for any question that you may have we have the resources now to where you can listen to it on a podcast, go read a blog about it, or you can go watch YouTube video that will purely answer any question that you have knowledge is power.

"Well, there's this new research that came out this week. That's pretty darn interesting to me. Tulane university. Assistant professor Damien Murray. And with a group from UCLA? Have some new biological evidence? To show how falling in love can influence immune system in a positive way. Now, this research was done women. So this is particularly good news for women. Listen up ladies, what they found in their research was that women who fell in love had increased activity of genes that involved antiviral defenses compared when when they began the study. Now, here's the interesting thing about this study. So it was a twelve month study. And that's a pretty long study when you're doing things like drawing blood on a regular basis. It was a study of undergraduate and graduate students were who participated. It was only women forty seven women completed this research that did include drawing blood every other week and filling out questionnaires about how's your life? On Tinder these days. Have you met anybody? What's happening, right. And I'm sorry. They participated in the study for a total of twenty four months. Now, the drawbacks to the study. It was relatively small. I mean, can you say forty seven women are exemplary of the entire culture at large. No, no. But the length of the study that's pretty big. And the fact that they had not just self reports. Like, I feel healthier. I haven't had cold in months. You know, you always got question. Self report studies 'cause people lie a lot. But this was you know, draw the blood and have a look at the immune system. Another small drawback, but only small in my head is that it was a paid study. They paid the participants. Hey, come on they're taking their blood every other week. This a big commitment. They're filling out questionnaires you better. Give me a little something something for that. That's what I would say. So I don't think that that necessarily skewed the results. So what they found is that women who did not fall in love during the twenty four months of the study did not have these new antiviral defenses. So. This could reflect a kind of proactive response to anticipating future intimate contact. I'm reading study given that most viruses are spread via close physical content contact. Okay. So basically, they're saying is which came first the chicken or the egg falling in love means that you're now exchanging bodily fluids is a hope you are. I hope you're kissing and getting somebody else's germs in their saliva. So what does that mean? It means that your body is going to have to produce more white blood cells, by the way, do you know, why women like to kiss more than men? So in our anthropological past women and probably today. Women use the taste of saliva and the smell of Ramones to determine how healthy a man was. And there's research around pharaoh moans and immune systems. If you've heard me talk about it before, you know about it. It is that the more disparate different. Somebody's immune system is from you. The more deliciously. They were s- they will smell to you. And the better the sex will be and here's why. So when you meet somebody, and you mate, you might take Brown eyes from one long legs from another curly hair from another except immune systems, they combine to create a stronger human. And that's mother nature's way they do it through sexuality. Smart mother nature of making somebody smell, absolutely delicious. Think about it. Think about the person that you look back on that you had the best sex within your life. I bet you're gonna remember delicious smell so. These researchers follow these forty-seven women for almost two years, and they found that those who fell in love had better immune system function. So what does this safe to us? What is this telling us? Well, basically, we're learning all the various mechanisms biological and psychological of why relationships make us stronger, I do an exercise with my students, and I want you guys to do it right now unless you're driving if you're driving do not do this right now. Okay. But if your home if you're anywhere where you can be calm and close your eyes, and like you to close your eyes, and I want you to think about some person in your life that you had a secure attachment with. It might have been a parent a sibling, a lover, an anti a grandma, and I want you to rest your head on their chest and listened to their heartbeat and feel their arms around you. And be still and go into that place that imagine tariff magic machination place. Here their heartbeat smell their deliciousness, and relax and sink into it. Guess what your body right now is releasing my favorite hormone, the one with its own nickname, the cuddle hormone oxytocin. That's what your member thing. And because the brain actually doesn't know the difference between imagination and reality you can get a little dose of it just by being alone. Now does this mean this is a replacement for a good healthy connection? No way. Jose is not a replacement at all this just to let you know why? And how relationships are particularly good for our health, and why I studied health psychology as much as I study relationships science when we come back positive psychology.

How Can You Help a Friend with Depression?
"Just wanted to let you know this episode deals with the topics of depression and suicide so if you're not up for that today. Go ahead and skip it and hey, take care of yourself. Okay. During the publicity that attended the recent suicides of Anthony bourdain end Kate Spade. People were urged to reach out to loved ones. They suspect are coping with depression. There's good reason for this nudge, a more than sixteen million American adults experience major depression with only thirty five percent of those affected turning to a mental health professional for treatment effective treatment can lead to partial or complete remission and thus a vastly improved quality of life. But one of the tricky things about depression is that it can prevent people from getting help still despite these numbers a lot of people are confused are anxious about how to handle a potentially depressed loved one. How can you tell if someone is really depressed and how exactly should you approach the person? What if they get mad at you for asking? Although a lot of variables are at play. And it's impossible to predict a reaction experts insist that it's always better to make a true and carrying effort. We spoke with Matt Onarato director of social work and an adjunct clinical assistant, professor at the Ohio State University. Wet. Sner medical centers Harding hospital. He said a people who contemplate suicide are embitterment up to the end. They want the pain to end. And if there was some other way to end the pain than kill themselves. They would take that. There's always hope you make a small gesture of. Hey, I'm here if you need me, and that could stop someone a week later from trying to kill themselves, the small things we do make a huge impact. So how do you know, if someone is dealing with depression almost all of us get the blues at some point feeling down about our lives or selves, the difference with depression is that this feeling does not lift and has not improved by spending time with friends or taking part in fun activities some fairly well known symptoms of depression include sadness and loss of interest in hobbies enjoyed in the past weight gain or weight loss. Trouble sleeping or excessive sleep difficulty. Concentrating and suicidal thoughts or comments a general ability is a lesser known and often overlooked symptom. Verbal statements of feeling emptier. Worthless are also important to note as well as physical symptoms like pain fatigue, headaches or stomach aches, if any of these symptoms last more than two weeks and interfere with the person's life functioning in some way. It's probably not just the blues like any serious illness depression needs to be treated to get better. A lot of people are scared to approach left. What about depression or suicide a whether it's because they don't want to offend the person are afraid to make the situation to real or are worried that they'll get yelled at we also spoke with Dr Catherine brunette assistant, professor at the school of social work at Tulane university via Email, she said anytime sensitive issue was brought up the potential for defensiveness or anger is there. She also noted that you're not necessarily in for a fight though. Quote, everyone responds differently and many people may be relieved to talk about their struggles. Especially if a non judgmental insensitive approach is taken. In the event that the person does react unhappily. It can be helpful to be open and direct about your emotional response, therapists, suggest saying something like I understand you're going through a lot. But when you snap at me. It makes me feel sad. There's no guarantee that one talk will result in action. And that's okay, Burnett said sometimes they friend seems to blow you off you can affirm that you just care about them. And are there if they ever want to talk your friend may not respond immediately. But your care may have left an opening for future conversations. When you do initiate the conversation calmly expressed concern, then let them do a lot of the talking. Listen, I hold off on any problem solving or suggestions, it might sound silly. But just listening to a person's experience of depression can help them validate that experience for themselves. Once they've had their say, therapists recommend asking probing questions. Like how bad does the scat? A does it ever get worse than what you're telling me? Are you aware of having a lot of guilt or shame? Just void saying things. Like look on the bright side, or it's not that bad or even something like when I was depressed. Once I started walking every day. And I got better. Remember, the depression is a systemic illness. It can affect a person's whole body and being so it needs treatment tailored for every individual person. It may take time, but hopefully, they'll come to the conclusion that their depression can be treated there are lots of options, depending on how severe the situation is if the person is suicidal. There are services that offer twenty four hour access to trained professionals and other resources in the US. Try looking up the National Alliance on mental illness or mental health America. Or these suicide prevention lifeline or the substance abuse and mental health Services Administration some services are free. And there are federally funded outpatient and inpatient programs available to folks without insurance with payment based on sliding scale, according to income if the situation is less urge. Don't talk to your friend about what option they might be most comfortable with this could start with a trip to the family. Doctor a, particularly if your friends doesn't want to see a therapist after all primary care. Doctors are also able to rule out any other medical 'cause like Siread problems or Nimia they can screen for depression prescribed medications and refer patients to mental health professionals, many employee assistance programs offer free or reduced cost counseling sessions to staff and family members. So be sure to check your specific plan for counseling and other resources. Onarato said, I think culturally were becoming in America more comfortable talking about mental health, depression, and suicide people are being more open, and knowing that there is help out there that you won't be judged and are not

And volunteers from the Red Cross who were helping grieving families yesterday today are setting up cots and food and support for evacuees from Thousand Oaks and cities nearby. So it's really a double whammy, especially in a place where so many people knew someone affected by the shooting on Thursday. That's what Dakota Solomon a high school senior told me she was dropping off supplies with her friends. I haven't met one person who doesn't know somebody who knew that was in the shooting somebody they know directly was there like it. It doesn't matter. Basically who you ask somebody who's going to know somebody who was everyone has a connection means really had a ripple effect throughout the whole community the whole area. Do we do we know anything about the shooter? And why? He did what he did. Well, this point we don't know much more. The Ventura County sheriff's office has now not only dealing with the investigation. But now they're also trying to keep people safe from the fires that are burning. And what we do know is that the FBI has searched the shooter's house in his car that he lived in a nearby neighborhood. So law enforcement says he's probably knew about the bar. It's a popular bar, especially among young people, and you know, Wednesday night was college night. So there was line dancing was country music draws a big crowd. It's an eighteen and overplay. So a lot of young people were in there that night and as country music fans, some of the patrons were survivors of Las Vegas shooting, which happened at a country music festival. You spoke a little bit about the things. I mean, what more have we learned about these victims? Yeah. There's no official list. That's been released yet. The medical examiner's office is expecting to do that. When the autopsy done, but we have learned about them from their friends and from their family, and among the dead was a college freshman marine veteran young man who stayed behind to save others. And of course, sergeant Ron hey l'aquila's who was the first to respond to the shooting and is seen as a hero for moving in so quickly. I also spoke to the Representative of the owner that owns the bar borderline bar and grill, and he says the owner plans to rebuild to me open the bars been around for a long time. So people saw it as like a safe place a place for comfort in many had gone there after the Las Vegas shooting to find that comfort. And unfortunately, I know Leyla you have had to cover a number of mass shootings. Have you have you heard any insight from people in Thousand Oaks about? How often these shootings seemed to be happening? Yes. I heard a lot of anxiety. And especially if you think about the fact that many of these are not many, but some of these people are now survivors of more than one mass shooting among the dead was one man Telemacus or final send we did speak to his family. He was twenty seven a survivor of Las Vegas, and they are furious at their son went through not one but two mass shootings in his lifetime. And including the Pittsburgh shooting. About two weeks ago. The gun violence archive says there's been Matt thirteen mass shootings in two weeks. That's NPR's. Leila. Fadel? Thank you so much. Thank you. This mass shooting in California happened eleven days after the one at a synagogue in Pittsburgh and in the time between those two incidents. There were several other mass shootings that barely made headlines as heartbreaking as these tragedies are psychologists say that when they happen so often we may become numb to their impact. And peers retu- Chatterjee reports when ginger Ellen Becker I heard about the shooting in California this week. She says, my mediate reaction was another one. Here's another one. She's a high school teacher in Lawrence, Kansas. She says she did feel sad. It's just that. I'm not very surprised when it does happen anymore. A lot of other people feel the same way. Roger CHU is a software developer in Lexington. Kentucky here. Well, happened again, I guess looking back. It's kind of sad that that's kind of how desensitized we are. Now, it turns out that desensitization numbing of emotions when we've seen or heard if one shooting after another that's a natural response. Charles figley, a psychologist at Tulane university. Says this even a term for it compassion fatigue. Compassionately is the fatigue of providing compassion, and empathy. He says thinking too much about traumatic events can make people too anxious or depressed function in their daily lives that can happen when people see suffering across the world or in the case of the shootings closer to home. We, of course, think about ourselves being in such a place in which someone would suddenly burst in and shoot things up. But if we think about that too much, then it deteriorates are sent the confidence that our sense of trust.
