What happened at the University of Chicago during the Manhattan Project?
"Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in us. History research resulted in the weapons of mass. Destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there were several reasons wine wise. It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle

patients because they receive less care is a black patients occurred roughly eighteen hundred less in medical costs annually than white patients with the same level of six researchers say this is due to a myriad of factors of the lack of insurance lack of access and even unconscious biases from doctors there for the machine rings white patients equally at risk of future health woes as black patients were actually sicker they say correcting these biases of the algorithm what more than double the number of black patients flagged for additional care following the findings the study was replicated on a different data set of three point seven million patients and I found a black patients collectively suffered from eight it's forty eight thousand a vision of chronic diseases compared with white people although the study was conducted on just one health care algorithm the researchers say similar biases probably exist across a number of industries now the lead researcher was down percent hill who will lie Jonathan he's a professor of computational behavioral sciences university Chicago said it's truly inconceivable to me that anyone else's algorithm doesn't suffer from this I'm hopeful that this causes an entire industry to say all my we've got to fix this so all right what is I mean for your eyes what it means is as we go more high tech and eight I it's all about algorithms okay so if you're a man or woman that fit the textbook yeah high cholesterol diabetes high blood pressure they're gonna probably have you flags appropriately as high risk for heart disease okay if you're a woman that let's say has no family history of breast cancer never went to a doctor for a breast lump had a couple babies you're not going to be considered rest at rest for breast cancer and so you might be put on a lower risk category we get less reminders to go get your mammogram I'm telling you right now women who have had breast cancer I can't see how many people I've met said they never had in the family and they never had a previous long and then they found something then they went to the doctor so medicine is tricky it's unpredictable health issues are unpredictable and I don't want somebody saying well you're good because it's not in the family see I don't have a lot of diseases in the family because most of my family died before they get get diagnosed with the disease so when somebody says but look at all your father never cancer so you know how do you know you're at high risk for these types of cancers ago he didn't have cancer because he died of a heart attack before you could ever have the diagnosis of cancer all these algorithms looking family history and your family got killed in the Holocaust or a car accident or a you know over does we're not gonna have family history we're not gonna have any algorithm you have people out there who are adopted and they have no idea what the family as uncle let's just assume they have some sort of cancer and heart disease or whatever and let's just assume it's in your family because if I don't assume that I'm not gonna test you and I understand that there's a big liberal push for us to have more

What does exposure to gun violence mean for our mental health?
"About what exposure to gun violence means for the mental health of young people. We have Marie Richards with us. She's a psychology professor at Loyola University. Chicago who studies the effects of community violence on lessons and Sandra Galilea is the dean of the Boston University school of public health MAURICE. Let's talk about solutions are their best practices to help children who were exposed to gun violence in their communities, particularly talking about black and Brown. Low income children who are facing a variety of stressors not just gun violence. Yeah. So we know that families are very important to kids, obviously. So when the work I've done many others have done is we find that. When families are supportive of kids that they they demonstrate warmth that parents are able to listen and show concern and care about the feelings of kids the kids do better. When kids feel connected with their parents, when they they spend more time with their families, and they feel close to the mothers and fathers the outcomes are better than mental health is is better, even when they're exposed to high levels of community violence, so families are really important, obviously. But the other thing is that we find that neighborhoods when neighborhoods are more cohesive. In other words, neighbors look out for each other. They look out for the kids in the neighborhood. They're safe places for kids to play that helps kids to do better in life. And then there's schools where teachers are understand trauma when teachers and administrators are trauma informed. Kids are more supported within those contexts, and you know, obviously, kids spend lots of time in school.

"My advisor at the university Chicago was that the moral mind is like the way the tongue has a five different taste buds on it for to pick up five different chemical properties of the world. Our minds, it's as though they have five or more different moral taste buds and different religions, different political philosophies, build a structure on some of those what I found empirically from. Doing research survey work and other kinds of work is that people on the left in America and in general, in other countries to they built a morality mostly on issues of care, harm protection of the vulnerable, and then fairness, but fairness as a quality. Whereas social conservatives they have those, but they see fairness, Moore's proportionality, do the crime do the time, that sort of thing. And they also care a lot more about group loyalty, respect for authority and a sense of sanctity or purity. And if you have that vocabulary, those five moral foundations, you can understand why left and right, can't understand each other on most culture war issues until what that what that sort of implies it's underscored by the other point that you make making the richest mine which people are largely driven by intuition rather than how he likes to think of ourselves as reasonable creatures. If that's the case, can ever really be any sort of conciliation in terms of politics, all of this sort of miracle like there, there's no way to come to to sort of even conversation, right. So so philosophically and psychologically I am an intuition est. That means I think intuition is where the ax. Is into our moral intuitions, come first, and they drive our reasoning afterwards that might make it seem as though we therefore can't agree because we're all just driven by gut feelings, but it's more complicated than that because our intuitions come first, but they are educational. They are changeable. We can't change each of those intuitions just by throwing reasons. You know, if left chocolate which is well, you know, don't you care about, you know, respect for your parents. You can't just throw things at each other. But in relationships, we, we come to listen to somebody. We talk with someone, our minds can Mel. This is an amazing ability that humans have that no other animal has we can meld our minds if we're open to that, and then we can actually hear each other. And that's what happened to me when I set out to understand conservative thought. I actually met a few conservatives I'm there were not many in my world. I talked to some people and they were very decent people. So through relationships with the right kind of relationships, we actually can open our minds and hearts a great novel can do. That a great ethnography can do that. And one of the tragedies our national life is that while we used to be fairly mixed politically and we were more separated racially in in other ways, we've gotten more mixed along a lot of axes, but we're getting more and more separate politically. We live more in more and more Sherifi filter bubbles and that makes it harder to empathize. It exacerbates our political divide, and it damages our democracy. So that brings us to the new book the coddling of the American mind which really talks about the ramifications of exactly the sort of divide and in the in the Cali of the American mind, you talk about what you consider three big problems in American society today, if you wanted just eliminate those, that'd be fantastic. Sure. So the book is based around a three, great, untruths. My first book, the happiness hypothesis was actually about ten insights that you find an ancient cultures all over the world, psychological insights. And so one of them is what doesn't kill, you makes you stronger neat. That was Nietzsche's formulation, but you find the exact same idea in mentioned in ancient China, you find it all over the world. That kids need child. Human beings need challenge obstacles, failure setback in order to grow..
