General info about BI SIG with MaryBeth Osborne
"Everybody to the brain injury sig podcast. This is our first podcasts. And we are so excited to have mary beth born as our person that we are interviewing for this podcast so as our inaugural version here. We figured we'd do is talk about the sig in some influent in some Can up-to-date versions of what's going on with the sig. So mary beth is a physical therapist who initially got her degree from the university of north carolina at chapel hill in nineteen eighty nine and then went back a few years later to get her. Dpt in two thousand nine as she has clinical specialization in neurologic. Physical therapy which She was board certified in two thousand fourteen. She has professional experience in a lot of different settings. I'm a large portion of her time in brain injury community based re entry and then supported living program. She was adjunct faculty at unc chapel hill for five years and then has been at university health for five years in their outpatient narrow clinic in serves as the co director of the neuro residency program. She has expertise in the hippo. Therapy and aquatic therapy so. Welcome mary beth. Good to have you thank you. I'm delighted to be the first gassed on your podcast. And help promote the sake right so i guess i should mention the reason why you're here as our guest for the big is that you have quite a lot of experience helping out with the brain injury sig in general in the a n. P. t. on so could you maybe just tell us a little bit about your role in the brain injury sake. Sure i'm the immediate past chair of the brain injury special interest group and served two terms And it was an extra year is well because it was We transitioned from chair. Lacked position which i served that year so i believe it was seven years as the brain injury. Sick share I started as the chair so A lot of people know came back or karen mccullough she nominated nominated me from the floor at a csm meeting and That's when i started being involved with the big. Wow awesome and we thank you for all your work that you've done for the many changes in the accomplishments that you had over the years with it so for people who don't really know the structure of organization of maybe kind of umbrellas. Ap ta in a n. p. t. could you just kinda give a brief Overview of kind of how the brain injury falls into place where really falls amongst the structure of the aneka ti. Of course that abt a has a number of academies sections and so the academy with under which the brain injury special interest group falls is the academy of neurologic physical therapy or a. n. p. t. and so under a. n. p. t. There are eight special interest groups or six and so the brain injury special interest group is one of those eight special interest groups and the intent is just to break down the content area or Interest area of clinicians and their pets Into common interest areas so that the special interest groups kind of interface directly with the membership on a smaller level. Right right thanks. That's really helpful. I think to kind of know where everyone falls in alignment and kind of how they all work together. So the brain injury sig than is part of the a. N. p. t. Does the brain injury saying have its own particular goals or kind of missions or things that it's doing to can help on conditions who are had interested in helping individuals with brain injury. Yeah so the jury's special interest group mission aligns with the economy of neurologic. Pt's mission and is basically. And i'm paraphrasing. But it's basically just a forum to promote health wellness Optimal function and quality of life for individuals with acquired brain injury That's kind of the overall arching thing is to gather people who are interested in providing care and assisting individuals with acquired brain injury From the physical therapy perspective.

"On a Tuesday. It's all things considered from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Leila folded in Los Angeles today brought a sudden reversal in the story of the male and the vote. Postmaster General Lewis to Joy announced that he's suspending his controversial cost cutting plans at the U. S. Postal Service. The move comes amid bipartisan pressure and reports of slowdowns in mail delivery around the country. Those delays were particularly alarming for election officials, who are expecting an unprecedented number of Americans to cast votes by mail this year due to the pandemic. We're joined now by NPR's miles parks, her cover's voting issues. Hi, miles. Hi there, so first off, what exactly did the postmaster announced today? So if you remember D Joy came to the Postal Service earlier this summer in May after leading a private logistics company for more than 30 years, and he had promised this sort of organizational realignment aimed it saving money. Some of those changes had gone into effect already had already started, some major, fairly major mailed always across the country. But he essentially said today that that transformation he's planning is now on hold until after November's presidential election to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election male, he said in the statement. I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded. Over the past few weeks we've heard from postal workers and others who've said the's changes made it impossible to deliver mail on time. Does today's announcement mean that service will get better? It's still a little unclear, He says sorting machines will not be removed in overtime will be approved quote as needed. But a number of watchdog groups have already released statements saying they aren't satisfied. Because a lot of these policies that Detroit implemented when he first got on board, we're not super transparent from the beginning. It's still hard to know exactly what today's announcement means. It's not clear whether the sorting machines that were already removed, for instance, are going to be returned or whether just no more sorting machines are going to be removed. Here's former deputy Postmaster General Ron Stroman. Talking about today's statement. It raises war questions, Then it provides answers, and it will be important in coming days to see if we can get clarity with regard Teo to those questions. Lawmakers will get a chance to get some of those answers on Friday and Monday when the joyous scheduled for congressional hearings Now this is a pretty dramatic reversal. What sort of political pressure were the joy and the Trump Administration under It was really extraordinary. How quickly lawmakers and the public took hold of this issue. You know, it's fairly walkie to be talking about the USPS just a couple months before a presidential election, But it points to what we've seen in public opinion polls that the USPS is the federal government entity that people generally like the most. The entire Democratic Party was galvanised by this, with some lawmakers like Senator Bernie Sanders, even calling for the joy to resign. A number of Republicans asked him to reverse the changes. Too many of them represent rural parts of the country where even if people are skeptical of voting by mail because of what President Trump has said they still might be more dependent than urban voters on the mail for things like prescriptions. So more than half of voters were expected to cast ballots by mail this fall. How nervous should they be about returning their ballots via the Postal Service? Joyce specifically said in the statement that the Postal Service is ready to handle whatever volume of election mail received this fall. And that's obviously a very different message from what President Trump has said where he's basically said the USPS is not equipped. Do that. The biggest message coming from election officials and experts is that voters should not be scared. They just need to be early with your request with mailing it back. Don't wait until the last minute on any of this stuff. That's what Canetti you into trouble is waiting up until the deadline. You need to just get that ballot in the mail and give the post office timeto work. That's NPR's Miles. Parks. Thank you. Thank you. In North Carolina. They tried the state's flagship school, UNC Chapel Hill, began the school year with in person classes. Then came Cove in 19 outbreaks in three dorms and a frat house in the first week. Yesterday, the university abandoned plans to have students on campus starting tomorrow. Classes will move online. Let's hear directly from Chapel Hill where Mimi Chapman is chair of the faculty and joins us now, Professor Chapman. Welcome. Thanks for having me How disappointed as everybody in Chapel Hill. Well, it's a heartbreaking situation. This's not where we wanted to be. We were very hopeful that a plan could work. Although You certainly as the summer wore on, and we weren't seeing the kinds of decreases in the virus around country that we had hoped. Ah, tensions and anxieties ramped up. Even as the campus was opening walk me through. How this last week has unfolded at the first sign of trouble was word of clusters into residence halls. Yes, that's correct. I think you know, certainly is faculty. We began hearing about this on Friday. I began hearing about it on Friday morning. I think it was on probably on Thursday Thursday night as I understand it that all of the contact tracing and that sort of thing was going on. So ascertaining exactly where these clusters were and who who needed to be. Tested in isolated and that sort of thing there. You surprised it unraveled so quickly. I guess. You know, I'm really sad that it unraveled so quickly. I There were an awful lot of students. If you walk around our campus, there were so many students that were doing a good job of wearing masks and doing what they needed to do from what I could see. It is also clear and we heard this from the earliest days that there were a lot of off campus activities, some of them related to the Greek system that were flying in the face of all recommendations, and so distancing masks that type thing. Exactly. Yeah, So, and those were big parties, and they were hosting first year students and students that lived on campus. And so at least as I understand it, the current thinking is that that is how it got back into the dorms. I was struck by a headline in the student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel. They had an editorial yesterday with the headline. UNC has a disaster on its hands. Except they used a considerably more profane word that I can't say on air than disaster. Right? I saw that. Ah, from where you're sent it from the faculty perspective. Did they get it right? I think it is just I think it's more complicated than that. I mean, I I certainly understand the outrage and the anger and yes, there are many faculty members that Um, shared that outrage and anger. But it is a complicated calculus and I don't know. That the student newspaper has investigated that, quite to the extent that they might You're suggesting that intentions here were good, even if the way it all has all played out has not been away. Anyone would have wanted it too. Is there Is there a lesson learned here Or does this just underscore? How very, very difficult in person tuition is going to be in the middle of a pandemic? Um Yes. I mean, I think that you know, Human sea has some of the best public health infectious disease. Folks in the country Health communications. If we can't bring those resources to bear in the way that we did with a successful result, I think it should give every other large public university in the country pause before going forward. And in that way, I hope that our experience will be a real service to the country. And indeed how perhaps the federal government needs to think about these things and help institutions of higher learning Preserve all that they offer and the economic engine that they are, even if they have to take as what? We've called it an off ramp. Professor Mamie Chapman. She chairs the faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which has just announced it is abandoning plans to have students on campus on moving to a fully online model for the rest of the semester..
UNC at Chapel Hill to Move Online as Coronavirus Spreads

"I'm Noelle King in Washington, D C and I'm David Greene in Los Angeles. Good morning. The University of North Carolina announced yesterday that it was backing away from its plans to hold classes. In person just one week into the fall semester. This has been the concern all summer long. The colleges would welcome students to campus and then they'd have to shut down right away. NPR's Listen Natwar Knee has been Covering this. She is in Georgia this week where students at that states flagship University are moving onto campus. Hi, Lissa. Hey, Good morning Before we get to Georgia, where you are, Let's start with UNC Chapel Hill tells what happened there. So after just a week of classes, UNC Chapel Hill reverse the decision. So they're now pivoting toe all remote instruction following several Corona virus clusters on campus clusters. So what exactly were talking about how many students are impacted here? According to the university. Just last week, 130 students and five employees tested positive. The clusters are in housing both on and off campus. I've been keeping in touch with a junior at U. N C. Made a deaf origin's. She's just moved into her off campus apartment over the weekend. Here's what she had to say. People saw this coming. This was not by any means a surprise for a lot of faculty members, campus workers. Students. I was not even here for 24 hours, and then classes get ended up being shifted. All over the country. Colleges are watching what's happening at UNC as they themselves are starting to bring students back. This has to be on the minds of universities that are going through the re opening process, and one of them is University of Georgia, where you are, what's it feel like there? Well, we got to campus on MoveOn weekend, which usually is a pretty rowdy weekend. But here it's relatively quiet. You know, there's just groups of students hanging out on campus. The campus does require masks pretty much all the time. When you're not eating or in your dorm and students have been complying. We saw students outside a fraternity house playing basketball. All but one were wearing masks. Wow. Well, what is mean? How'd you even handle the move in in in a state like Georgia, which is how I think the highest number of positive cases per population and in the country, right? That's right. And there are special covert procedures here to slim down cup spaces to keep him to keep less crowded. You know, you had to sign up for slots to MoveOn. You're only allowed to bring two people into the dorm with you. And we saw tons of cleaning supplies. We provided her with hand sanitizers masked disinfected for a room. That's mom Ebony Coleman, whose daughter Kindle is starting her freshman year, She packed a quarantine bag with her to move in. Just like a first date, kid. If you will. She's got a duffel bag that we put together with extra charger's A few shell verbal rations If you will, uh, chicken brother whenever we could put in there Just to make sure that she had what she needed in quarantine. So that's just in case she gets sick. You know, there's a little anxiety. Of course this is this is a different kind of move in, but it's also really exciting, and the Coleman family is really proud. Usually a has been her dream school for years since she was a little little girl. I'm feeling emotional haven't cried hit, but I probably will. I don't know what I'm getting chills listening to such a proud mom. I mean, how are students feeling? Can they focus on on the beginning of this college experience with everything going on in quarantine bags? So for the most part, they're really happy to be on campus. We talked to a group of students who are eating dinner outside by the football Stadium was really good that we were able to get on campus so they can see what tactics are working was not even though we have to be like the sacrificial lambs, and it kind of makes me nervous because, like I probably already walked past somebody who has it and doesn't even know it. That was Jenna Mohammed and Annette Camargo. Vera. First year students. They had masks. The college actually sent every student to washable mass and a thermometer in the mail before they came to campus. Right now, they're more concerned with making friends and actually recognizing people on campus in those masks, then getting Corona virus themselves. Well, I mean, this is what we saw at UNC. They decided there were enough clusters enough concern that they had to go online. I mean, does Georgia have a threshold for when they would need to shut down when when things would get that enough? So I put that question to Dr Shelling us who's been helping implement reopening plans here. That's the million dollar question, Elissa. I mean, of course been discussed, but it's very complicated. Are we out of our own isolation beds? You know how many pockets Aaron dorms versus not? I mean? I mean, there's probably 20 or 30 different things. So not a concrete answer. Uta is doing randomized testing every day on campus now says they're planning on reporting the number of positive cases on a weekly basis. But the big question here is what students do off campus. You know, we did go out last night, and the bar strip in downtown Athens was full of students, many without masks. One thing to know. You know, it's warm out here, so there is a lot of socializing that's happening outside. All right. Listen, I know you're going to be travelling over the next several months on the road Exploring what college looks like in a pandemic. If you are a college professor, you want to share your experience. You confined Elissa on Twitter at Elissa Nat. Warning, Eliza, Thank you so much. Stephen the Trump Administration says it will auction off oil leases in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by the end of this year. Will that really happen, though it's unclear there's big fight over this one. Here's Alaska Public Media's Liz Ruskin. Alaskans have pushed to drill on the coastal plain of the refuge for decades, arguing that industry can co exist with polar bears who den there in the winter and caribou who give birth in spring. Cara Moriarity of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association says new development on the North Slope would be great for the state, she says it would bring opportunity. Just as when oil began flowing from Prudhoe Bay west of the refuge. In 1977, there were young engineers and young truck drivers. Built their whole careers around Trudeau, and that's what Anwar could be that next giant Ellison field that is foundation and security. For the next 2030 40 years, But it's not clear how much oil the refuge holds or where it is exactly. And this move comes amid a global oil glut and a shift away from fossil fuels. The jury's out. There's no guarantee oil companies are going to bid. A thin manual is with the Sierra Club and a longtime campaigner against drilling in the refuge. BP, the original company that drilled the first well in the North slope there trying to sell upon their assets on the North Slope. They've announced that they're gonna dramatically reduced amount of money. They think that the new oil fields around the world. Trump Administration officials say they're confident oil companies will bid on the leases. Environmental groups expect to sue over protections for the polar bear. Candidate Joe Biden also opposes drilling in the refuge..
School reopenings off to a rocky start amid pandemic
"Students arrived on campus earlier this month. So did Cove in 19. Clusters of infection hit several residents, halls and the school logged 135 positive cases just last week, most of them students, And so after one week of classes, the school said it would move all undergraduate instruction online. In late July, The Orange County Health Department recommended the school start the year online only and warned that Cove in 19 could pose serious problems if UNC Chapel Hill tried to resume business as usual. In a public response to weeks ago, the school's chancellor, defended the decision not to follow the health Department writing. We are well prepared for the start of the fall semester. Cory Turner.

Detecting Emotion Through Gait with Aniket Bera
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Mall I'm your host modeled Schmeltzer our guest. Today is unaccounted. Berra is the research professor in computer science at the University of Maryland at the Gamma Lab. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you so much. Thank you for inviting. Yeah thanks so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role at the University of Maryland. Sure I've been with him for a little under a year so for this was at. Unc Chapel Hill for a year and had mcbean St at UNC in robotics so a hermit research over the last few years has been trying to work on the social aspect of our bodies whether from the computer vision side where we look different objects after we as humans when we look at different objects. How do we perceive them? So my research has always been about. Data perception for robots and robot can understand the world around us like as humans. It's what research has been over the last six seven years might Rowlatt you. Md has enough research faculty. I advise about seven students now from vision. Applications to robotic applications the psychology driven. Ai Applications on McLennan field of research is something affective computing affective computing. What it means is that we're trying to gauge emotions on Detroit's you in aggressive Shy said figured out different cues from your visual appearance like your facial expressions the way you speak things the way you walk from all of that. Can I figure out your emotions and then do something? According you follow. What specific here. That was something that we found really interesting. You know part of the reason why we reached out to you and hang you join us on their today podcasts. As we wrote an article for our today podcast listeners. He may or may not know that Kathleen and I are also contributing writers to Forbes and tech target and one of the articles that wrote in Forbes was how systems might be able to detect your emotion. Just by taking a look at how you walk and other sort of non maybe visual facial visual or verbal cues and that's part of what being socially intelligent is. I guess we as humans can read things like body language. But there's a lot more to it. So maybe you can explain some of the concepts of socially intelligent robots and why this idea of social intelligence is important yes oh the concept of socially intelligent robots is essentially making robots understanding humans. Better so we. As humans are not objective to be tend to evaluate unheard of things based on out upbringing aquaculture in all these different rates. And then associate all those things in everyday life so In this research which you mentioned the phobic mad we did when research way we could figure out how people walk and then have a garden new. Somebody's side we could mechanize that person sadness just by looking at his a her. Buster is a hub body language and maybe the robot can walk up to that person and ask questions. You look sad today. Can I help you like some help if somebody is Chris excessively angry? I might want to talk to that person and maybe even avoid that person together. Assembly looks confused. The robot co that Bush announce something that you look lost here. Do you need help been something. Do you need to some place? So all these different we inherently as humans. Do which usually doing tend to do those things so go. The last Jedi as robotics has always been about solving problems accurately and objectively so. Let's say you know the goal for about is go from point eight in be and the robot will try to figure out the shortest are the most efficient go from point eight point what via bringing in is also being associated vendor most socially aware the. Somebody's walking. I want that other person to have his hub Robot I do not want to enjoy on. Somebody's face so having all the social norms social events bring it back to robotics is what the concept of socially intelligent robot as unwise. This idea important I think has become more primetime and as they become more available among says I think they should try to attempt to understand humans and be Understand humans but go beyond that and be part of the human society He not interesting because we talk about commonsense emotional Iq and that's incredibly hard for robots and artificial intelligence to actually have been a lot harder than I think. Maybe some people realize although there has been some discussion around it and at COG Melika for the past two years we've actually done voice assistant benchmark and commonsense and emotional. Iq were too of the categories of questions that we asked because supposingly the systems were not very good at that but this idea of AI systems that can detect emotion based on gate is a really unique idea. So where did this concept come about? So we started this. Actually I think about skate years ago. I mean I know. Eight years ago IAE wasn't the we'd know now things were different back then but we started with the concept of can't be figured out somebody's personality just the like just looking at how they walk back. Then we started the representing every human being every industry as a single entity as a single dot on the screen so used to look at videos. And how this guy is trying to avoid somebody to cut across people to figure. Oh his guys aggressive. This guy's got shy guy walks around all these other guys look from that and now we figured out so from the dot aspect of figuring out the entire body leg rewrite now have around twenty two points Bush and so all our lake from your leg from your hand gestures your shoulder through your slaughtering head so all these things. All these different cues which we observe. That wasn't really being studied before there's a lot of research on the emotional especially from faces. You know somebody's happy. Somebody said there's a lot of research in this field especially from speech in the way I see something. Let's say I'm happy? I'm very happy today. I'm okay I'm happy but also the way you say. The sentence is the content of the sentence is one thing but also to the way you was at so all these different cues were being studied in different fees realized that the body language is something which really people studying. We look at people a lot. We look when they walk in the talking when they're driving but we don't we we know what they're going to but we don't really like we haven't understood how gives how walking body language relates to emotion so our on this hatred emotion is kind of it could be added all these facial cues with speed with other were. Hughes from the human so I researched
Regina A. Mason: Searching for William E. Grimes
"Jimmy Mason is a remarkable woman. She spent fifteen years of a life researching alive for great great. Great Grandfather William Grimes with nothing to go on the connection to the underground railroad. She spent countless hours in libraries reading books. Looking at Michael Film and Census Records Grind was changes. Oh when he was sold away from the arms of grieving mother to a far plantation hair grew up friendless and mother list apparently no surrogate slave family or loved ones to embrace him. No one even to look after him. Grimes was the first person to go through slavery in the South and write about it. This was the first time cousin. Slavery exposed onto the spectrum of one who had lived in and he was the first author to write about the harsh realities of the north. Despite the narrative of his big F- freedom land. Recently in Black America spoke with China rant to produce of Gina's journey the site for William Grimes and Regina e Mason on today's program. We conclude our conversation and so my co-producer contacted his agent his agency and they sent it over and to my astonishment he came back and was like I'll do it and it was more than a reasonable rate and which also made us faint and the next thing I was out in In Hollywood in in Melrose actually at his recording studio and and directing keep David in the booth which was mind blowing to say the least and he was astonished to see you know me and and and you know given my age and done and being an African American male to be directing this film so that that really made him happy when he saw that he just was was really blown away with it but he blessed the project came in. He did the most amazing work on it and it really just elevated genus story and Grind Story to a whole new level so we will be internally thankful to him for that and every once in a while I do have talks with them still. He's just a really good person and I think he's a studier of history. He's very big in the voice over world. He's an Emmy Award Winning Boys Actor. Who's done a ton of Ken? Burns documentaries so he was really into and this is his thing so I think he really enjoyed working on this project and we were better for Ms Mason ominously. This was labor intensive. This is way before Google and everything else. So what gave you that consistent drive to want wanting to complete this project William Grimes himself you know when you read his narrative all that. He endured life to the cruelty the abuse at every turn. He was reminded that he was nothing but he never bought into the status quo. In fact he defied the status quo. Every turn just the fact that he had the notion that he was capable of writing his own story without any assistance from white people speaks to who he was and how self assured he was so his example of perseverance and endurance gave me the will to to just carry on it. And see this per- This project to to the end and I'm speaking of the book project and I do have to say this once. I started digging into this story and realizing that no other scholars and really looked at it. In fact when I went looking for any body of research that was done on William Grimes it was so inaccurate and they were historians to just took liberty to to write about this man having not done any research whatsoever and then I came across the Work of Dr William L. Andrews scholar from UNC UNC Chapel Hill University of North Carolina Chapel Hill extraordinary expert on early African. American autobiography. I came across his book to tell of Free Story and he studies the slave narratives and included in his body of work which is sort of like the scholars Bible. Today he wrote about William Grimes not a whole lot more than I had found those about four pages of work and I needed to make sense of that genre of literature that I really knew nothing about so I reached out to him and he at the time was the only living collar who that who I could talk to and we sort of built a relationship every now and then I would send him information about what I found a William Grimes and he one day wrote me back and he says look the work you've done has to be preserved in some fashion or another then. He approached the idea of partnering to do a book. Because I knew that bill knew that I I wanted to bring this story to light this new scholarship that had never been done before on William grinds and he definitely was the right person because obviously he had studied grimes he had written about grinds and there was really no one else that I could associate myself with and he was the man when it came to early African American autobiography and so we partnered and We developed what we call all. What has been the authoritative edition of the life of William Grimes runaway slave? What was it like your feelings when you you read his narrative and then understood that your great great grandfather was just not an ordinary slave Well I WANNA say this William Grunt was an ordinary man. Who didn't extraordinary thing? I want to move to realize we may not have those narrative is out there. We may not be able to to. We can maybe able to find our ancestors who had been enslaved on In plantation records or slave inventories. And all you see our names sadly those voices we will never know their voice or their humanity because the story doesn't exist so to find this first person account of slavery and by the way we them grams. It's the first person of color to go through slavery in the south. Handle right about it so for the first time we got to hear about southern slavery from the perspective of the Sleigh and not from the slave owner himself so it's a different kind of storing. It's more authentic and true in terms of the experience so to recover this and then associate myself to this narrative. I realize that all of his virtues are inside of me so when you say William Grimes was not the ordinary slave he definitely speaks for those who didn't have a voice and I believe that. None of the slaves bought into the enslaved narrative that was supposed to be their destination and ultimately was their destination or a. Yes. I believe that they all had that will to be free. And and in their own circumstances they asserted whatever power they had in a rebellious way. And so to know though that William Grimes was able to make out of slavery and to tell his story is huge it is it's just incredibly empowering and I realized that again that his virtues existed me and he was my example every step of the way when I wanted to give up when I was faced with all kinds of closed doors I realized that he faced those same and he was told no over and over again but he found a way to get it done and so I I it brings me great.

"Carolina UNC Chapel Hill with all due respects, all my friends at Carolina where I taught last week and for the last eight weeks, I want to remind them. Nike gave tennis shoes. All the football players tennis shoes to all the football players. Basketball tennis, shoes doll the football players. So all the football players on campus could be traveling billboards for Nike for free. What did some of the football players? Do. They sold them for two thousand dollars like any college kid would if you were offered two thousand dollars for your tennis shoes. What happened to those football players? They were suspended from playing a football game. While the coaches made several million dollars for wearing Nike. Equipment Nike shoes. Nike. You name it. They would wear it for price. And while the school got money from Nike, but the football players got suspended for dare Sally the shoes that were given to them. And now we have Duke University. I love coach K I love coach Williams. They're great basketball coaches, but they're both being paid by Nike. And now we're finding out is there a possibility that Zion Williams's mother was a consultant for Nike just coincidentally at the same time. That our son was going to Duke University avenue went on to say, I almost forgot long day, Duke men's basketball. Can you also have your close friends at Nike check their Nike vendor portal for payments to Sharon Samson, consulting just search thousand sixteen to the present. Appreciate it. Now, that's from avenue, the Duke athletic director, Kevin white and the school released an Email statement following these tweets that said, quote, we are where of the allegation, and as we would say or as we would with any compliance matter. We are looking into it. So the Nike school is going to look into whether or not Nike bribed somebody to play at Duke University. The school that has accepted millions upon millions upon millions of dollars from a tennis shoe company. Is going to investigate themselves as to whether or not the mother of their biggest star was a paid consultant. This whole concept of amateur sports is a joke. Even the Olympics gets at the Olympics. Allows so-called amateur sport athletes, who are working their tails off for a gold medal, a gold medal, and no money are now allowed to accept money from endorsers why wasn't Zion Williams frankly, allowed to go ahead and get a shoe contract while playing for Duke because they're pretending that he's a student athlete. Do you think Zion Williams is going to class right now? I kind of doubt it I think he's negotiating with Adidas or Nike or Under Armour. Or converse or a new shoe line altogether? He could buy the shoe company for what he's about to sign and now dukes going to investigate it. The problem might be will the IRS now investigate it and see if this money was reported as income. I think the players are being played by the school in the play in the schools themselves are acting as though they're purity. It's no longer amateur sports. Let's call it. What it is. It's semi pro sports. And a lot of other people are making money off of it including Nike, including all the tennis shoe companies, including ESPN, including the athletic directors, including the coaches. I never thought I'd say this wire why can't the players get a cut of the action? Why can't the tax payers? Get a cut of the action because they're using brands like the UNC brand that are owned by the state of North Carolina wires, why is it the state of North Carolina in students getting a cut of the action or going in debt going all of our schools? Let's share the wealth. We will talk about the teams that are still part of the action. The national championship action do can Texas Tech. And also the the game between Auburn I said, Duke and Texas Tech. I'm at UVA in Texas Tech UVA and Auburn on Saturday night, a referee. The referee was needed.

I thought it I I I've got to be a chemistry major biology major too to become a dentist because it's a it's a scientific thing. Right. Will I realized pretty quickly after looking at the curriculum for chemistry or biology that it wasn't necessarily going to contribute to me being a fantastic dentist. So I happen to be sitting in a psychology course. And I was just sitting there. And I was like this is amazing. This is exactly what I've always been interested in. Why do people do what they do? Why do they not do what they don't do? And what drives decisions and behavior. So I instantly became a psychology major, which I believe Gary has helped me more than just about anything else in dentistry from a marketing standpoint, and from a communication standpoint, it's really all about psychology. When you when you boil it down, the science is incredibly important, and that's the technical stuff. And that's the how to do. It stuff, but the getting people to do it stuff is pure psychology.

First time journalists have pursued their professions, and perilous times. But today's atmosphere has really taken an ominous turn over. The last couple of years for our discussion today we've assembled an excellent panel, with varied backgrounds I'm going, to give a brief introduction and then.

"That is that is and again i don't know the specifics of his case never talked about it again too i think my father wanted us to focus less on that period in that incident and more on the bond that we had but but yes you're right you know it's our prisons are filled with individuals that are charged with nonviolent offenses who are separated from their family you but you you mentioned that you that you excelled academically yes did you always know that you were going to go and pursue higher education how did that i knew i was going to go to college and i knew i was going to siblings go yes my sister did my brother went into the military i knew that i was going to go to college and i knew i was going to unc chapel hill phil win it was time to apply for college that was the only college i applied to thank goodness i got it yeah but you didn't know going in what it was that you were going to study no i didn't i did not so when i first started at unc chapel hill i was actually a biology major because in in high school and middle school i loved science but i'll tell you when i took my first science class at unc chapel hill i thought oh my gosh i'm in way over my head and i then quickly decided i needed to change my major psychology was the popular major at the time and so that's just why picked it and you took a class that spoke to you yes and your own experience yes tell me about that so in one class it was risking resiliency and in reading one of the book chapters on risk that was the first time that it hit me that i was an at risk youth because like i said i had all of these protective factors around me that i excelled in a didn't have trouble excelling in so for me i couldn't comprehend how i was still identified as an at risk youth i i really you know it it didn't sit well with me because i felt as if i was being degraded to a statistic and i never wanted to be a statistic you also fit the other category to resign his yes yes and that did not i didn't understand that though at the time the risk factors are what spoke to me and i just that angered me at angered me to the point that i remember challenging my professor and we talked a little bit after that class and you know that was when she pointed out to me those resilience factors that had that you know really set the stage for future success did you and was that class was that pivotal in terms of what you decided you wanted to do now i'll tell you what was the pivotal moment so you know my father had been incarcerated yes but it was really the incarceration of other people in my life that i loved and there was one person in particular regular who had gotten incarcerated and my family got the call that he wasn't doing well and when we you know heard the distress in a person's voice you know we were concerned than you know emotionally mentally they felt like he was on you know he was not doing well just i'll just say that and so we drove to the correctional facility where he was to visit him and when i looked at that person at i recognize that he was a shell of who he used to be and we then engage my sister is an assistant district attorney in so you know she spoke the legalese she engaged the the jailers and we talk to them about what we could do to make sure he was going to be safe and so they watched him closely and we were able to call the jail make sure he was okay because this was an different state and you know seeing that resonated with me so much that it hit me that had he not had the support a family there's no telling what he would have done and so now you know fast forward almost twenty years later he's very successful and you know i i actually am very proud of the changes that he's been able to make but we all recognize that a lot of that is due to the support that he had of his family and did you decide at that.
Red Meat Allergies Caused By Tick Bites Are On The Rise
"The ticks range expands npr's alison aubrey reports one day last summer lars sterling took her doug governor for a walk on a trail near her house she lives in savannah park maryland later that evening she realized she'd been bitten by a tick i found it three or four inches to the left of my hip it bone and didn't think anything of it i just took it off and threw it away but about three weeks later she ate an italian style pork sausage for dinner and had a horrible reaction i would say it was probably six hours after i ate it it was in the middle of the night and i woke up covered in hives she was itching and scratching she felt lightheaded she also noticed stomach aches so she went to see an allergist he asked me did you change your detergent did you change anything in your diet and i said no and he said in the last month where you bitten by a tick and i said yes after a blood test the allergist told her she was allergic to red meat and maybe dairy too i thought it was completely crazy because i've eaten dairy and i've eaten red meat all my life her story is pretty typical of people who develop a red meat allergy after a tick bite says allergist scott commons he's an associate professor at unc chapel hill and he was among the first to identify the allergy in patients with tick bites about ten years ago he says back then there were just a few dozen known cases but now we're confident that the number is over five thousand at least in the us alone there are also cases in sweden germany and australia likely linked to other species of ticks now coming says in the us cases of moved beyond the southeast to new york maine and minnesota absolutely we're gonna find this continues to expand the reach of the tick is expanding and equally i think we have a blood test raising awareness and the word is getting out there's still a lot to learn about this allergy it's known as an alpha gal allergy alpha gallison's sugar that animals make including cows and pigs but we don't as humans we don't make this alpha gal sugar we all make an immune response to it so how does it tick bite 'cause as the allergy well it's possible that ticks inject alpha gal into people's bodies when they bite the ticks likely get it from feeding off wild animals such as mice or squirrels come and says it's also possible that ticks activate the response in another way whatever the tick is doing it seems that it's a very potent awakening for our immune system to produce antibodies and in this case it is antibodies to a very particular sugar in red meat as for laura sterling she now avoids all dairy and all red meat once i was told just stop eating it i was fine felt great allergies usually give their alpha gal patients epipens because reactions can be dangerous but the good news is that people can outgrow the allergy this is most likely to happen if they avoid further tick bites allison aubrey npr news all right when you're pregnant you know the doctors want you to get a few key vaccines and now the american college obstruct obstetricians and gynecologists is trying to make that a little bit easier for the first time it's put together a one page immunization guide for obese and midwives npr selena simmons duffin who happens to be pregnant at this very moment went to find out more the guide pulls together information about which shots pregnant women should skip which they can get an which they should definitely get the two and that should get category are the flu shot since the flu can be really dangerous for pregnant women and teed up the tetanus diphtheria protests vaccine would you have samuel you'll like it that's medical assistant kimberly johnson getting ready to give me teed up a few weeks ago at thirty weeks pregnant from spain the idea here is to protect newborns against pertussis or hooping cough people are like i never heard of who've been caused what's the big deal like why do we even have to worry about this that's dr laura riley she's the vice chair of obstetrics at massachusetts general hospital and helped write the.

"Of the big reveals of james comey's testimony this past week was that he leaked through a friend the contents of his own i'm classified memos about his interactions with the president to the new york times and also this past week we found out the name of another alleged leaker government contractor reality winner she is under indictment for violating the espionage act after allegedly leaking classified nsa documents concerning russian interference in the 2016 election she has pleaded not guilty and now by mary rose pap andrea to talk about leaks she's fesser at unc chapel hill it has written extensively about national security leaks and the press welcome thanks for having me so let's start with the big news comey shared the contents of his memos with the press is that illegal it's probably not it doesn't appear that he shared any classified information and add there's been an argument that perhaps he was revealing information it might be covered by an executive privilege but even if that were true it appears trump has waived any such privilege by talking openly himself about his interactions with colmey so it's unlikely that comey would be prosecuted it is unlikely this kind of leak though isn't what we typically think about when we think of national security leaks i you know i think of edward snowden chelsea manning and now miss winner how are those kinds of leaks different and what are they usually charged with sure so there is no general law against at revealing classified information or a general law against leaking that is a turn xu's broadly to refer to the whole range of things that there are specific laws on the books that criminalise the sharing of information without authorisation one other various provisions of the espionage act and it it prohibits the sharing of information that's our documents that are potentially damaging to the united states or useful to the enemy the of the united states and sharing with someone not entitled to receive them so that's very bribe it's not limited to agents of a foreign government and there is no carveout for sharing.
