U.K. Moves Toward Ethically Controversial Coronavirus Vaccine Trial
"Vaccine Trials are happening all over the globe today. The UK government announced funding for phase. One of something called a human challenge trial for a corona virus vaccine. The process will require young healthy volunteers to be infected with the virus in an effort to speed up vaccine testing a company called H Vivo and Imperial College London. Have the contract is set up the first part of that process. Here's more from the world's caroline dealer the idea itself sounds wild intentionally infect people with the very virus returning our lives upside down to avoid. People hear about these trials. Many people's immediate reaction is, how could it be ethical but Oxford bioethicist deb Yom row gic says, it's possible if certain conditions are met one of those conditions is that the expected benefits of the research outweigh the risks. In this case, how many infections could we prevent if we developed a vaccine sooner? For example, in a typical clinical trial thousands of people are injected with a test vaccine and sent out into the world to see if they still get infected naturally that's happening now with several corona virus vaccine candidates, but Andrew Catchpole. The, chief scientific officer at H., Vivo the company launching this human challenge trial says that takes time normal traditional trials involve many thousands of subjects take many many months to complete in human challenge trials, which HP VO has been running for decades. A small number of healthy volunteers would be intentionally infected with the coronavirus after getting jabbed with a trial vaccine to see if it works. What happens is because everybody is given the disease, you're able to determine efficacy in a matter of weeks. These types of tiles have been used for centuries and in the recent past have. Sped up the development of typhoid and cholera vaccines. The agreement announced by the UK government today is just for the first step of this contract to manufacture and test Raina the virus to use in trials it still has to be approved by regulators and an ethics panel. If it is between thirty and ninety volunteers could start being injected with just the test virus, not yet any vaccine as soon as the beginning of next year so far nearly three thousand people in the UK have signed up to volunteer for a challenge trial. One of them is allaster frazier ORCA. White indefinite convinced. The Human Josh all has essential to advising Ovalles, scenes, population way more quickly lift on them on opinion the risk is small enough to travel participants that we need to take that risk frazier ORCA put off going to university for a year to work with one day sooner, a nonprofit group advocating for human challenge trials and signing up volunteers. He says the Tom Channel some of the fear of living through a pandemic into something that feels productive grandma custos. My Dodd might catch his out his risk. So kind of on a personal level the. Volunteer volunteers will be paid somewhere around five thousand dollars insurance cover healthcare costs. For any complications they will quarantine in a special nineteen dead unit at the Royal Free, hospital in London for an expected two weeks after virus exposure. Again, Andrew Catch Paul from h Vivo. A first priority was doing these studies is the safety of the volunteers. So for that reason, we go very strict criteria about those who. Will be eligible to participate. Volunteers must be between eighteen and thirty healthy with no pre existing conditions. But there's a more controversial criteria that scientists are wrestling with right now whether to exclude volunteers of color because there is data suggest that there is a potential for increased risk. The UN says Kobe nineteen is disproportionately affecting racial and ethnic minorities around the globe including in Brazil the UK and the US. K. Government figures, black men in England and Wales are more than two and a half times more likely to die of cope in nineteen than white men. Some of that is explained by socioeconomic status in pre existing conditions. But Dhillon David Kumar, a physician and professor at University College London says it's more than that. They're also other underlying causes racism discrimination for example, being an underlying cause which are not easy to count foreign. Announces such as this Dave Qamar said, he's the health impacts of racism and xenophobia. He says, well, it's important to note that raises a social construct, not biological. The effects of racism in tells in ways that can be hard to identify. So you can't hold constant the discrimination someone's face throughout their life. You can't hold constant the environment someone grownup in the levels of air pollution kinds of housing that they've lifting throughout their life. So. There are differences in outcomes amongst racial groups. David Kamar isn't familiar with this specifics of this study proposal, but he says he can understand the reason for picking volunteers who are at the lowest possible risk for getting really sick. Charles cordray chief officer for the Caribbean and African Health Network sees it differently. It's really disappointing people of Color. In clinical trials that's partly due to legacy of racist medical experiments. By white doctors and kwok-wah dray says the idea of excluding people of color from this trial would add to the distrust mistrust and the lack of trust has come about as a result of decades of sometimes how we need to respond so quickly but what is meant is that there's a whole section of people. Fair much. whose voices are not being head HBO is still making a decision about whether and how to include people of Color in the first phase of this trial when they're testing out the safest way to infect people with the actual virus the company hasn't designed protocols yet for the actual vaccine-testing in hopes quickly follows the volunteer criteria for this stage of the study will be finalized and handed over to UK regulators and an ethics panel by
Vote (If You Want To & Can)
"Let's jump right in and talk a little about the history of the native vote and the history of the suppression of the. Native. Vote. I got to tell you that when trump I got elected I felt. Like. Sick to my stomach I. And I. Spent a good amount of time reflecting on my own personal behavior like thinking to myself did I to enough to. Try to make this, not happen. And and the answer is you know I don't often talk about national politics both through project to on my blog personally, you know because I fi-, I find it incredibly problematic and uncomfortable to talk about because you know we're living in colonial state and the federal government has actively tried to eradicate us, and there's a long history of broken promises and broken treaties. Therefore, it feels very uncomfortable to say to my fellow native people you know. Go vote in the system that's not meant for us that doesn't actually ever do the things that it's said it's going to do but go vote. anyways you know. It feels I, feel like a hypocrite just saying it. Yeah I really feel like we need to talk about it. Right Yeah it is by no means a simple decision for folks in Indian country and I think that's really important to acknowledge and to think about as we. Start to talk about this election and what we need to do. Right and you know there has been a long history of active native vote suppression for the first one, hundred and fifty years. In this country, we weren't even allowed to vote, and then in nineteen twenty four can the Indian Citizenship Act which formally US citizens but states continued to prevent us from voting, right? I. Think Sometimes, there's memes and stuff that gets posted where it's like going through the. Different marginalized groups, and when they finally got the right to vote, and it often says like native Americans nineteen, twenty four. But we know for a fact that that's not true. Because, as you said, most states still had things in place to prevent needed from voting like it wasn't until nineteen forty eight that natives in Arizona got the right to vote and then all of that. Suppression that played into the passage of the voting. Rights, act. So in Nineteen, seventy, five. So the things like literacy tests or poll taxes or all of these suppression techniques that affected other communities of Color Also affected a native folks as well. There's all of these appalling facts that have led to all of these underlying issues and voting cases as to why are people have not shown up to the polls in the same numbers you know I I often get asked. Like whoa when I tell when I'm having this conversations with non native people and say, yeah, like a lot of not a native people that I know are don't Vo are when you look at the numbers, you know you would you might think to yourself like, well, why wouldn't native people be active in this process and just want to acknowledge that it? It's it's very systemic. Done on purpose. Absolutely. Yeah. So we're like giving the dates from like nineteen, twenty, four, nineteen, forty, eight, nineteen, seventy, five but like. In twenty eighteen North Dakota changed their ID laws to say that if you were voting, you had to have an idea that had a street address on it and most native folks in North Dakota, Po Boxes, and don't have street addresses. So it was like an active step to try and suppress native in Dakota because natives have power in voting in north. Dakota and in a lot of states that have high population. So like this is an ongoing thing for native communities and then that actually that actually didn't work out well for. North. Dakota. Because all of these activists came together got really good publicity. There was a lot of grassroots organizations and then was it Ruth Buffalo ended up taking the seat. anyways. So so you know I think that's a really good demonstration of the power of the native vote especially in rural areas of Turtle Island. What I should add to this conversation. Around. You know like the the power of the native vote and the complicity of us. Even, telling each other to vote is that. You know we want to have a relationship with the people that get elected. Even. Biden beats trump's not only going to fix the dislike colonial problem. That we have. Yeah I mean it's hard because there are definitely things we can talk about that are like. Immediate. Undoing of things that the trump administration has done that have been really harmful to you need of communities, but there's also an entire list of things that are not going to happen even under a Biden Administration And there's this. Quote that I saw on the wall of the Harvard Law School Lake. Years and years ago and I think about it often in terms of these ideas of justice or like doing what's right from the federal government I will say it's problematic because it's only attributed as a quote African proverb, which obviously is a really problematic but the the Clo- is corn cannot expect justice from court composed of chickens. And I think about that in terms of. Natives asking for equal treatment or justice from the US. Colonial government is like corn expecting justice from a court may have chickens

The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo Review
"With, the heart of an ad with tail and the visuals of a classic Asian period drama. The empress of salt and fortune is tightly and lushly written narrative about empire storytelling and the anger of women a young royal from the far north sent south for a political marriage alone in sometimes reviled, she has only her servants on her side. This evocative debut chronicles horr- is to power through the eyes of her handmaiden at once feminist high fantasy and a thrilling indictment of monarchy. That's I remember when this book got a buzz. The Library Journal said it was the day of the month buzzfeed said it was A. Pretty much like the fantasy novel of Spring Twenty Twenty. So I was really excited about it plus handmaidens tail and a political drama. Yeah. Sure. That's that sounds like something that I'm really interested in. Yeah. I mean my main thing is. I don't know if the handmaidens hill comparison is that are descriptive of what this story really is because to me, it definitely was a pro woman story, but I don't really know if I got handed until vibes besides the fact that there's like a handmaiden it you know I actually got more of. The handmaiden, the Korean movie. I got more of that five because that movie is It's told multiple multiple perspectives and us the story is not what seems like and you kind of have to like piece together everyone's motives and how their plans and motives like fit together. So it kind of reminded me more of that movie. Yeah, which is also based on a book. It's based on the fingersmith Sarah Waters, which I highly recommend. It's it's great. Yeah. It's also queer, which is you know this book is also very Queer Zaveri Queer friendly story. There is a lot of different characters on all sides of the LGBTQ spectrum I guess we can start with just how the story is set up. So the story is told through I guess, would you call the second person narrative? Is that what this is or now I? It's third person narrative right? Actually it's third person and then when it switches to flashbacks, swin rabbit is telling the story that's first person right so but basically the main character or the protect I mean tonight even protectionist right like the. I guess perspective character. Through the story. The main character is a monk or in this world, a cleric named chief who is coated as a non binary they go by them pronouns and their. Magical. Talking Bird companion who is actually like a supercomputer right? To go there like a bird that can remember an archive everything it sees and hears you know I had to Google what a what a hoopoe was his Like through context clues was like, okay, it's a bird but what this bird? Looks like Google Google. It was I mean right off the bat and we can talk about this later. Now we want but it's this book is Novella it's really short. It's one hundred and twenty eight pages I wanNA say or it's it's less than a hundred pages I'll wet. Okay. So I just checked how many pages it was on kindle. It's one hundred twelve pages. Okay. So even less yeah, and in those short on a pages, it does a ton of world building and I know this is something that you and I have thoughts about. But like to me, I feel like it did a lot of world building through giving really sparse details. Requiring the reader to kind of fill in the blanks. Right off the bat, you have a talking bird which took me a while to figure it was a bird. you have supernatural hungry ghosts. Yeah. And like implied magic in the world to there's allusions to Mejia's and whether magic like we mentioned. So like right off the bat it Kinda throws you into this world that the reader has to figure out what's going on through context lose. Totally independent of the actual narrative because I think even without the like fantastical. Does also stand alone on its own as like A. Story of political intrigue. In. Rebellion Yeah.
Penn State clarifies doctor's claim of one-third of Big Ten athletes with myocarditis
"Doctor really assert that approximately one third of all big 10 athletes who have tested positive for covert 19 have myocarditis, potentially damaging or even deadly inflammation of the muscles around the heart. And his conclusion. Not exactly that very conclusion went viral Thursday after a story printed some off the doctor's comments this week. Now somewhere, and I'm reading verbatim from Dan Wetzel Sporting Dan Wetzel's article. He does a great job, Yahoo sports, he said Somewhere in the translation between zoom meeting and social media. Ah, lot of nuance and perspective was lost, and the doctor's comments had become a political football to be batted around. And that's exactly where we're at right now. Absolutely, positively is, the doctor explained, You could have quote you could have a very high level athlete who's got a very superior vo two max and cardiac output who gets infected with covert And he could drop his or her vo two max and cardio cardiac output just by 10%. And that could make them go from elite toe average status. We don't know yet. And I think that there's a
Interview With Susan Park
"Or those of you who are foodies and I know if you don't consider yourself a food, do you like food? Some of our most popular episodes are when we bring on people who own restaurants or who are chefs and my guest today. Is kind of a combination. She's not a chef. She's married to a chef. This is Susan g young park, and she and her husband are the owners of a very unusual Taco place near the campus is called. I think I'm saying this right Revolucionario? Is that correct? Yes, it's a revolutionary on North African Tacos on. At one, four, three, six, West Jefferson, boulevard currently were only open on weekends, Saturdays, and Sundays for pick up orders only from noon till three, and actually I am a chef to learn more. Oh okay. Okay. Yeah. Well, you know, I definitely want to do a deep dive. Into, your establishment. But you know since we're recording this in early May and is still during the whole shutdown, and this is a restaurant I gotta ask you because we'll put this out relatively soon. This episode I have to ask you like, how has it been for you guys with the shutdown with the limited time that you're open. How's that going? It's been very, very asymmetric call. Because I also have. Started a nonprofit at the end of February and a lot of people keep asking me how I knew to start early with the Asian. American. Specific food. Bank. It's because I am an Asian American person. Who? WHO also owns also Asian American owner. And I. My restaurant is near USC SO I. Get to talk to a lot of. Asian, American, and Asian international students. So my restaurant very community driven. So. As an Asian American person business owner and somebody who speaks to Asian American students in Asian international students on a regular basis. You know I could feel the of sacks of you know, the the Wuhan Virus China virus. Right one international news broke in in December, and I can feel it affecting my business to I can feel it affecting my business, my in store business just tanked. I made it by with a lot of lot of catering more because they kept asking my customers helped me out catering orders than. And then a lot of a Chinese American students in particular in Chinese. International. Students who come to my restaurant. Started telling me. They just felt really anxious and they had a feeling of like just more isolated, and also I also do a lot of tenants advocacy work I've been in touch with CCD in. Chinatown. MOM since last year I helped him out occasionally with things at the request as I could see for myself, I mean. Koreatown didn't get hit that bad. Early, a chinatown business in Chinatown just tanked. You know at in December and January some restaurants. It was like ninety nine percent down the streets were empty. There's nobody. And then my friends from the San Gabriel Valley started reporting. The business was down in the San Gabriel Valley. And then it rolled into Korea town. So Koreatown was hit a little bit later. By declining sales and then in my restaurant to. So January usually means like a huge surge in business. And a lot of my customers are international students, not as Asian international students, but international students because my husband is also he's a French born Algerian Berber and Berbers indigent people to North Africa. So we also have a lot of European customers in African customers, and because we're North African Taco restaurant, we also have a lot of Mexican Latin next customers so very international. We hear a lot of news from everybody to because we're, I'm a owner operators on that restaurant every day that it's open. So I'm in touch with just. So many different communities. And just business was just was not picking up and beginning in January I started. Reducing, my restaurant hours drastically because it just wasn't worth it. It just wasn't worth it to old. You know just to get all that going and it was like this is not what any you know So then I started my food bank initiative I started I started my bag initiative before a stylish on nonprofit. Net Song early I. Think I met her Nebi. Rarity. A month after I had started my brown bags for all skid row initiative. Because wins, virus news broke of a mysterious virus mysterious You know that's a scare scare tactic. In China and it's highly infectious in know we live in a global village? and. Experts have been warning about pandemics for a long time and America wouldn't be prepared for one. So my first thought in January was to start my Brown Dad's for everyone initiative for skid row because in an era of pandemic, who do you want to help the most? I, I mean, who should you be healthy? It's the most vulnerable people were most exposed. Then it's going to be homeless in the House to people. And who are the poorest of the poor, the an housed I mean, it's the black residents. Elderly residents are skip Vo. So I, the Brown. Doctrines, round that for everyone initiative really took off fast because the idea was catchy. People could wrap their mind around like Paquito, Brown bag lunch. You know. So I, had neighborhood associations like four hundred members hanging. Why? Why can't all of us do like ten Brown bags? That's four thousand bomb. Gad's already

"This week? We are doing cast a little differently. Last weekend. The All bodysurfing club had their June meet up on its beach over on the west side of Santa. Cruz and I had the privilege of attending that event. It was hosted by Jason from Super Biscuit. Who you guys might know from episode. Episode Fifty Eight and Episode Twenty One and we got the chance to talk to some of the other sliders that were present was really fun. It was really cool. meet up right off the top. We knew it was going to be a good time. Because as we are coming down the stairway spread out. Of course, Arturo was out there from one more wave, one more Wade's own art. Role he was riveted. He was absolutely rip. India that bright. Orange. Brain blocking on so that was really cool to see and it was not a big day by any means it was like one two three footers I guess, and that was good for me, because even though I was like ninety five percent on point with my son protection my wetsuit, my kicker, my wet bag. I of all people forgot my fins. So that was less than awesome. Those definitely not not awesome, but what I decided to do instead was taking advantage of having a Mike on me and having the camera on me, so I decided to talk to some of these crazy people that like make our community and one of the first people I talked to. You wish Jj. Jj. You were just telling me you rock defense and slide boards, right? That's right. Yeah, how many people in today's all ciders meet up? Did you know before you can? About three of them who already renew Jason are and Jeremiah, Nice Nice. And you've got to be Corey today right right? Yeah, so How many times per week would you say you body sir? Twice a week. Yes, sir, or just body I use. Herbs are used by serving as will warm up. Essentially for a head in with him board Nice and how did you get hooked up with all -siders I rancid Jason La Belle year ago towels and he told me about. His Little Syndicate, he's starting to to A little group, Local Group you'll buy surfing, so that's got introduced. Nice and I. Do you enjoy doing these types of meet ups? Yeah, it's so fun to like feel to just body. Serve a bunch of guys who? Are Like minded enforce moment, just Bernie every time. How would you say the beach closures have impacted you since you're traveling around concern. I mean it's tough I. Mean I I have to have my car all time essentially, so it's been tough to define spots to actually get parking at the same time it. It's understandable. You know even the community safe. What about? Surfing lies where it's right now. Where do you usually ride? I'm typically over at pleasure point. It's sometimes another month. Yeah! How do you feel about? Do you think that like based off of how politicians responded to Cova nineteen in terms of beach closures and access to natural parts and resources, would that influence your voting going forward, or do you think that will still continue to be a second or third tier issue when it comes time who to vote for the balls I refer me personally. It's most likely going to be a second tier second thing. Just because I'm, I'm not local, so it's not within my radar completely, but understandable I. It's something I will put in. Our way in as my as part of my. rationale. In voting. Thank you think that. It's funny how? In the moment I wasn't aware of the sea line noise and now. It sounds like we were basically at fisherman's wharf in San Francisco. I actually also saw Jj this morning. Over by Jack's House on the east side, he was carrying a short. Next up I got a chance to talk to an listener of the podcast. In fact, this young man swam up to me in the lineup. Instead I heard your voice and immediately recognized. You was really cool for me. It's one of the first times that's happened. Organically in the ocean, so it's always cool. You know I. I love meeting. You guys and I. Hope that if you ever see me or Joe or Danny, you know you're always welcome to come and say hello. Anyway let me introduce you guys to Corey. Vo Corey is legit if you were watching instagram feed over the weekend, and you saw that guy snag that narrow point break. That, dirty dirty left. That was this man. That was corey. ARLY? Speaks really getting to be. I'm here with Corey. Round two point because we tried to do the the first time. I like a fool did not hit record correctly Where where did you travel down to Santa? Cruz from today. Came from San Francisco this morning. And that's your your home. That's where you live. primarily. That is where I reside, and that's where I find most of my waves and you add. Without trying to retread too much. You told me that you primarily served at Baker Beach. WHO. Baker beach most of the time and if not there, Ocean beach somewhere Kelly's cove. And what is the community been like up there? Which your experience that it? Is it primarily scraper is great. Surfers I I. Probably are pretty much only serve And if I'm that Baker Beach? There's there's a group of us who come out. I don't even have to hit the guys up usually. Will all be out there at the same time but. There are there. Uh. Guys who hit me up wonder if it's going to be good and we'll, we'll just head out there.

Activate fall right in that time line I would venture to say they don't know too much about the Indian Act. Most people have never even read that legislation. What is one element of it? That always surprises people for for a lot of people they think that people living on reserves and under the Indian Act live in some kind of Shangrila.

Seven of the Indian Act was put into place to protect their property from the erosion of taxes. Well, they were simulating. So that's what the Indian Act is post confederation assimilation policy tool, so we're going to protect their property from near Ocean of taxes on the face of it sounds really helpful, but you know we look at it, not more current context. It really just holds the Venetians back if If I wanted to go buy a truck for my car dealership, and if I had it delivered to the reserve, because I'm a status Indian I. Don't pay transactional taxes on that vehicle. If it's delivered to the reserve, that definitely is a benefit that people see, but what they don't see that as soon as I, declared the exemption reserves are also not subject to seizure under legal process, and so as soon as I declare the exemption, the financial services people no okay. Okay? He's a status India. Fife Thelma's the truck and he stops paying for it I can't go and take it back from him. If refuses to pay for very often, see the benefits, but they don't see some of the restrictions and some of the other things that are problematic with the Indian Act now, the Indianapolis passing mentioned in Eighteen, seventy six, and it impacts the lives of first nations people every day in almost every way it defines who has Indian status outlines chief. Chief and council systems influences the development of residential schools as a first nations person. What is one surprising way? The act influences your life. Today was just starting out my career working for a big firm here in British Columbia by then I'd had a post secondary education I was working for a really reputable solid organization, and we'll look at it from Capitol Lender perspective I I met the four CS of credit I was married had a job at a post secondary education. If I was a lender. I was the perfect candidate, but. They refused to loan me the money and wanted my wife who's not indigenous to cosign for the vehicle, which was quite interesting, just in terms of that whole understanding the impacts of you know trying to make way in the economic mainstream. Now I. WanNa get into one of the most long lasting impacts of the Indian act of the Canadian reserve system, many first nations across the country still live on reserves. Why did the government create the reserve system? The reserve system was really created as part of the old philosophy by the time we can federate Canada believed that the Indians as they're called in the Internet where a dying race of people that they're not going to be here for much longer They were going very rapid depopulation because of to the the that they didn't have immunity to, and they weren't fitting in economically info set the stage for this dine. Race people the best thing we can do to help them to assimilate and become like everybody else, and the feeling was that we would put them onto these reserves in the context of assimilation of reserves, really a holding pen.

Your original article on the Indian Act went viral. What kinds of responses were? Were you getting from the article lots of? Wow I didn't know that and you know sort of the moments, and we're still getting responses today you know on twitter and facebook where people are still saying you gotta read this book every Canadian Street this book and you don't know what you don't know.

In your book, you outline how parts of Vancouver and the surrounding area were taken back by government to create the city as it is today. Can you explain how that happened? Yeah, so there was a lot of that. Initially, we put them onto reserves often for the most part left them where they were situated, which is maybe different from the US for they relocated people, thousands of miles sometimes from. From but they put them onto these reserves I think about a place like Vancouver today there's lots and lots of people and urban sprawl, but in those days there wasn't much there, and so they put up Nice generous reserves with good allotment, but then we went back and took it away because they weren't being enterprising people's. You know they're supposed to use those lands and put them to their highest and best youth. It's Kinda this really weird argument, right? We want them to assimilate, but we don't want to compete with them in the markets and so. So, we take away, their one of the things is their ability to sell off her, or they can't sell without written permission from the Indian agent or the Department of Indian Affairs and

Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner on 'long, sustainable change'
"Week I'm joined by Linzie. People's Wagner Lindsay is yetter chief Teen Vogue see welcome. Thank you for having okay so teed vogue I feel like. Going back to the last election. Maybe it was beforehand, but it really came into focus that It was a teen vogue that other people didn't expect it. Was it was it was very attuned to social issues. Obviously this is a fraud time we've got economic crisis. We have a health crisis and we have a social crisis that is getting lot of overdue attention. So explain teen vogue sort of mission. I mean overall. My mission is to always make young people feel seen in heard in. That's really I think the model. That I walk with every single day, but I think they. The Lens in which we see, everything is inclusivity I think that that really has extended to all different ways. The talk about you know everything from pop culture to politics to style to beauty to wellness everything in between and I think the for us. Obviously, yes, you know the goal is for young people feel like they can be part of this community part of the conversation, but everything that we do is really culturally relevant I. Think you'll see that even if you go on our site today of things that know you don't have to be young person to be interested in and things that are really relevant to what's going on in the world. So how do you? How do you strike the balance? Because I think when when people see teen vogue, it's it's different from vogue and mature. Be Different. Yeah, yeah I think the A lot of that is really just my own experience in my own, you know desire to make things really a level playing field. I think a lot of my experienced before this job. I spent five years at your magazine. And I always felt like Those two publications really were thoughtful in the ways that they covered a lot of different issues going on in the world I think when I came to team vo What I was an intern assistant at Teen Vogue it was definitely all fashion, and then you know in the past couple years, and it was only politics, and I really felt like you know the to don't have to be mutually exclusive. You can really loves fashion you can really love to. You can really love all of these beautiful wonderful things, but also really deeply care about the world and want to see change and. Want there to be you know actual. Sustained change on a lot of these issues and so I think that approach in and of itself is really a testament. I think to my experience, but also really wear. Young people are in the world right now because I don't think they. Heard a lot of people say like I, WanNa. Get back to normal and our. We create a new normal, but yene people are really the one saying like. Let's just start to build something collectively new the better because we clearly haven't gotten a lot of these issues, right? Before and I think they that really that really is a powerful thing. That were were always trying to do devote. To explain why fashion and and these issues of inclusivity are. Intertwined because I think a lot of people from outside. Particularly the fashion industry with think they're kind of like totally different. No I mean I. Don't think it's different at all. I think like you know you can take my life as a specific example of someone who's always really loved fashion, but as a black woman in this face. I've never felt like people understood. My position understood my strengths or really made a point to make me feel seen heard in the industry and I think they it is really important to me to walk into every state as my soul, unapologetic black south, but also yeah I. I do love fashion I do love you know all of the things that encompassed style shoots, and covers all those things I love being creative, and I think they it really now is about taking to task all those brands, and all those publications that you love so much in saying I want your value so line with mine because I love you, I love all of these brands in everyone. That's you know saying that they want to hop onto. The black lives matter movement right now. What we really want to see is not just people being called out, but people really being. Called to rise to the occasion of making real changes that have systematically not been in favor of. I. Obviously a lot of people are scrambling right now. A lot of companies are scrambling right. Is that fair to say? Okay. And I think in fashion. It's an interesting dynamic because I think it's an acute issue. A lot of a lot of glamour industries have acute issues of. Knock giving opportunities to people of all backgrounds mean the truth I mean. There's a cliche right I mean it's a Cliche for a reason right? Yeah,

Do you think people are going to sit that close together? I even knew what they'll do is they'll start off with limited amount seating. Yes it'll say two hundred tickets and they'll spread everyone out that is ever GonNa fuck in but but it it will. You're right. It would be curious if what how they're going to book it because they will have the opportunity to book is like I mean Chapelle or the first one to one to want to be on stage. Yeah funny bones are going to get chapelle and Rogan. Yeah all these big names will be able to do clubs and we'll probably want to go to clubs and so you're right is i.

He said they pull out bodies by the dozens on weekends. Really WHY FLIPPING THEM IN A. Because I think there's a sense of a sense of of were in a desert wide open. Nothing bad can happen. And what people often don't predict they'll go up the top of a mountain and not know how far it is down and it'll be fucking like all or people run into each other nonstop. They say they find the same hill. And just Cauti- An- not that just outside Arizona. On the border bears done in California. We went surfing in the mountains. Like we had.

That's one way you won't die like faulk. I mean you had to have major anxiety attacks doing some of that stuff I will. I left travel channel with certified. Ptsd because I would. There was a certain point where I got to managing it in the mornings. Were I would be like I would go Like do a rope swing like I remember. I remember doing a rope swing in New Zealand. And it was like a four hundred fifty foot free fall so like they just tire rope onto you on a harness. You jump in. The road is tethered to like a fulcrum in the middle. So you jump and you fall until the rope catches and then it swings you out. Holy fucking kidding me. It is the most intense thing in that morning. And I know it's safe like I can tell you right now. It's one hundred percent safe right but you but regardless you wake up that morning at like four in the morning and you'd be hungry. Don't WANNA work out. You're just laying in bed. Just I don't WanNa die like I remember just saying over again. I just want to tell jokes. I remember getting the shower and like praying being like like down down squatted down praying going God.

I did one in Switzerland with the guys leg got caught not lost his leg like it so many times. I left with going like I left. Travel Channel going light. That's fucking nuts such like. I'm so scared of anything disatrous or when my daughter we were at a carnival behind a church and it was a ferris wheel. Maybe two story side maybe Castillo Emmy and my daughter when my is one of my older daughter was young we get on it and then they pull it up one thing and put other people on the seats and I look up his two stories and I go to guy. Hey Hey bring us back. My daughter doesn't want to do this. He goes yes I do. Judah doesn't WANNA do it. I'm telling you. It's a small the smallest ferris wheel on the planet and I was too scared to get on fucking I got I was. I was doing roller coasters for like three years on travel channel. And I got to the place where I could not get in a roller coaster because I had been locked in one for over an hour and it scared the fuck out of me like it ruined me being stuck in rollercoaster and I was in the Roller Coaster. Where you walk in. They harness you in the floor drops out and then they take you and they raise you like this. So you're flying and we do the ride we come in. We stopped and we're outside like the dates yet. They unload everyone. It's taken awhile. I'm just sitting like wow. This is taking a harness on with With a camera and microphones like I I have a vest on so I'm already kind of tighten it they pull in and the for doesn't raise for like five minutes. We're just sitting there waiting on. I guess they're probably just technical things the filming and then the floor raises manually. They crank the floor up and we're like well that's odd and then like guys it's going to be a little bit and I was like what and then like we just called one of the head heads of operations. He can come out and fix it. He's on his way now. I was very familiar with the park so I go. What Reid is like panicking trying to calm myself down and they go well. He's actually not on location. I went wait. Where is he like? He's in his house ago? Wait where's his house in Ontario? I go I gotta wait for this motherfucker to drive from Ontario. And they'll looking at my watch. I go it is three thirty years. GonNa it's GonNa take fucking forever to get your weight you were stuck in a Dang. It wasn't moving still moving. You just were I was staring at the ground. How far will you just from the ground ground? Probably thirty feet but but but we were in the station so the platform big manually raise the floors so we were like you know just like five feet from the floor. I had to have the the head of the park. The woman that was running the park the operations manager come and sit on the platform and hold my hand because I was bucking losing losing it. I like any of that stuff you did. I could I might have had a heart attack tune it like. Do you ever feel you're like just like you feel like your hearts can explode or Jiji you know. I've you know the I used to I. I could get my head off of it if I paid attention to the camera like if the camera was on me. I play to the camera I I would. I would just start. It was almost like being on stage like that with the way like you're nervous for you WANNA stay. You'd get on stage. You're like you're buying so I could always play to the camera. We went scuba diving. One time like my first open. Water dive was at ninety feet as it was supposed to be forty feet. But that's where the that's where we are supposed to be but the bottom of the ship was ninety feet and so we get down to ninety feet and I have. It's thundering and lightning out. Rich is where it's horrible weather now and you WanNa go scuba diving. But it's like you're you're on a schedule we're doing a TV show. Get the fuck in the water and I go down and I. I'm thinking and I get to like ten and my brain. I don't always see as darkness. Not Light out and I'm like I don't see anyone else. I'm just like where the fuck am I going and I realized in a moment of clarity all the shit I like is up there and none of this should I want. Is Down there right back into the top here?

The Cities Are Dying
"Our L. Ryan? We're GONNA start with you because on Sunday or Vo's the poor state of Mississippi dealt with tornadoes that ravaged the state eleven people died as a result on top of having to deal with the pandemic so in terms of covert nineteen while the number of reported cases in Mississippi is lower than in places like New York and Michigan for example Detroit. It's still impacting communities of color very intensely. Yeah that's correct Maria And so even though. The state of Mississippi has relatively fewer cases in places like New York. We report last week that Mississippi actually has the highest rate of hospitalizations in the country. A lot of our cases Jackson of course in Hinds County is the epicenter. But you know we're seeing a lot of cases in places like the Mississippi Delta which are majority black and you know the impacts here are the same as we're seeing in places like Chicago Milwaukee where even though African Americans are not the majority of the overall population the majority of both cody cases and deaths are black so mississippi fifty six percent of all the the the cove in nineteen cases have been African Americans and in seventy two percent of all of all debts in so compounded on top of that Maria you talked about the tornadoes that we just experienced over the weekend. So you know we were telling people shelter at home and now people You know people have been displaced from their shelters and we're going to have to figure out like where do we actually house people? Actually the safety protocols that we would normally go through in a disaster like this. They won't be able to to happen as quickly. Because of the the cove protocols and so even our our overall numbers are low. I mean we're we're definitely seeing a disproportionate impact on places like Mississippi to have large black populations and communities with high concentrations of poverty. Thanks for that Ryan and then Detroit a city where we've talked about this in the thick we we had. Stephen Live a city where systemic racism and poverty. They have a long history. The pandemic has really taken a toll. Michigan as of now has the third most cases in the country and Detroit as one of the blackest and most segregated cities in the country is the epicenter of Michigan. Forty percent of the deaths have been black people. Jeez the only make up fourteen percent of the state's population. This is all according to the Michigan Disease Surveillance System and vital records. But then it's even more severe in Detroit Stephen. Right because the black population is seventy seven percent of Cova nineteen fatalities so steven. What's going on in Detroit and across your state? Yeah I mean for starters. It is just so sad. You're right now. It's really hard. I think to convey the depth of that emotion without without you being here to kind of feel it and see it. The city is is suffering is feels like the city is dying in in some very real ways because of the extent to which this is affecting us and of course. There are the familiar dynamics of systemic racism and systemic poverty. That have made it a lot easier for something like corona virus to affect people in our city very differently one of the most glaring examples I think is the the policy of water shut offs which yeah one of the worst ideas we've ever had here in the city of Detroit as a way to increase revenues to the water department. A few years ago they started again shutting off water to people who don't pay which means that a lot of people who don't have the ability to pay don't have freshwater in their houses and of course because poverty affects African Americans in a more profound way than it does other populations and because the city is so heavily African American. That means you have a lot of black people. Poor black people who didn't have access to water when this started. I think about what we're telling people you need to do to not get the corona virus. Wash your hands wash your hands. Wash your hands. Well if you don't have freshwater. Yep there's really no way to do that I could go on and on and on other examples of things that affect black people more right at make something like this more dangerous and it just it caught us. Flat-footed we we. We were not because of the way that we've dealt with these problems for our community for such a long time. We were not in a position to be able to toward this off to make sure that that a lot of people didn't get it. Also think of the ways in which poor people are not able to isolate this idea. Stay away from everybody. Don't go to the store. Don't go visit people at that. Looks really different when you are trying to to get by day to day and there are a Lotta people in this city who are and they have to do things they have to. They have to earn money. You or they have to go buy things at the store and they can you know. I go grocery shopping right now. I shopped for two or three weeks. Yeah not everybody's able to do that and an right so you just have of this mixture of of things that have made this wicked for Detroit. Yeah Stephen you say this is kind of revealing the ways in which we've dealt with these things in the past and then I think of my time in Detroit like deep in Detroit and I'm like the thing is is that it wasn't being dealt with before and what I mean it is that I mean abandoned communities poor communities where the poverty is staring you right in the face and there's the whole issue of you know if you don't see it it's not
Approaching a New Aviation Normal
"The rate of change seems to have slowed down at least as far as aviation concern. Yeah well when you hit rock bottom. There's only so much share not. We're not there yet. But we're getting sick yet. This is true this is true the US is most certainly not at rock-bottom vo at were we'll get there. Yeah and so I thought it would be worth it to take a quick look at what ended up happening in March as far as the numbers we were talking about. You know things down and things staying down so total. Flights in March ended down twenty one point six percent. That's it's kind of misleading statistic. I think and we did a blog post earlier last week explaining this a little bit because if you look at the first week of March nothing really was out of the ordinary. Traffic was up four and a half percent globally. Because things really hadn't gone too far outside of China in some immediate joining countries as far as traffic was concerned. Then you get to the last week in March and traffic is down fifty five percent so a huge change in really just a week. I mean the eleventh and twelfth of March are really you think the defining moments for aviation in this and it's not getting better or coming back anytime soon from everything we've seen so far. No we're we're looking at. I think at this point we're GONNA see the US market further decline in the number of flights operated. But I feel like we're closing in on. I don't even want to call it normal because it's not normal at all but a new stasis a new kind of baseline where we're seeing something around thirty thousand commercial flights a day fifty to sixty thousand total flights looking at the numbers. I mean that could change next week and we could be sitting here going. Wow Ian was really wrong but I guess it remains to be seen depending on how how carriers adapt their new and their new schedules once again because it feels like airlines are cutting a little bit or a lot day by day. Yeah at least in the. Us were seeing. Most airlines have cut their scheduled the absolute bare bones here in the US through pretty much the end of May pass June things. Get a little more optimistic and then it ramps backup. Kinda to what was once normal. July and beyond American has made some pretty dramatic cuts to its international route network. It really seemed like domestically they haven't touched anything. Have they know I mean the domestic? That still seems rather optimistic to me. Extremely optimistic the American. We're just using American. Here is an example because they published the most comprehensive and and I guess the most to date information. They chopped a lot of their international capacity. A lot of routes that we're going to launch a lot of the summer. Seasonal routes will not be launching again for twenty
Whispering Sweet Nothings? (Zohar I:49a-b)
"I'm Sarah Rosner Lawrence and I'm here as usual with Arthur Marcus Clinical Director of knees women's health high. I loved these many tax. I feel like I learned so much. And I'm also here with our by Windsor. Russia Stephen President of Holiday Torah High. I love doing these men text episodes. Okay so what do you you have for us today. Rylander well few episodes ago. We did a mini text episodes from Zohar. On Kissing. And Love. That episodes I know about Chev- totally loved that And it's really great because the Zohar because as I've mentioned before Has Sex is such a central part of its understanding of God In the life of the Kaaba List in terms of effecting the different aspects of God we have we have more discussions about sex Than in many other sources So this is another text from Sohar. The exact source is Volume one page forty. Nine Eight A. B. and it's on diverse break sheet from via L. Haddam. I'm that God created eve the woman and brought her to man so here it is. I'll just read a few words in the Aramaic. And then I'll switch over to the English. The English is from the translation. flation of Daniel Matt. So they ha ho Lee from here we learn divine above EMA DECARLA that the mother and the father of the bride a require the Abu Take the time to bring the bride into the domain of the room. So far that sort of what we know the parents give the girl over. Give give the their daughter over to the groom. I'm GonNa Switch just the English as it is said. I've given my daughter to this man from this point on her husband comes to her for the House is hers as it is written. He came into her so that is actually a verse about interquest by Vo Allow. What's being read here as he comes into her domain? It's her home. He came into Rachel also again verse about Intercourse I. He brought her to the man. God brought to the man for up to this point. The father and mother should act by giving your daughter over afterward. He should come to her for the entire houses hers and he must obtain her permission. So this talking about sex is talking about you know the home. Is the women's domain A little bit of both. It sounds possibly what what consent consent. So we're going to get there. We have aroused just our awareness. Interesting word arouse but okay. We have aroused or awareness of this as written. This is now by Jakko. He approached the place and stayed there for the night. First first obtaining permission from here we learn that one who joins his wife shouldn't treat her and sweet in her with words or otherwise not spend the night with her so that the does careers their desire be as one with no coercion. Now just skip a paragraph and now we're GONNA continue with Jakko for a minute before we circle back to Adam and eve. We've he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head here. We learn that if a king has golden beds and precious spreads in which to spend the night and his consort his wife prepares him a better rain with stones. Right because that was the bed of Jacob the stones he should leave his own and sleep in the one she prepares and is as it is written then he lay down in that place now back to Adam come and see what is written here. The man said this one at last shall be called woman behold the fragrance fragrance of words to draw love with her draw her towards his desire arouse passion together like he's praising her and this is you know look how beautiful those words are it to get her in the mood. See how sweet how full of love own of my bones flesh a flesh. Showing their one inseparable now he begins praising inker this one shall be called woman this one is unparalleled. Glory of the House all women compared to her like eight compared to humans. Certainly this this 'cause this was the only real woman this one shall be called woman. Perfection of all this one and no others at is as it is written many daughters have done virtuously precisely but you surpass them all some GonNa Pause here the last paragraph if we get a chance goes onto a different point but there's a lot to be said about this all open the floor. I don't like Oh deep sigh out. It feel I'm trying to separate out my like twenty per century injury sensibility. Hear about lake over. flowery doesn't sound real I don't know how you feel about to Sarah and I don't know I I mean like I'm kind of. I'm struggling to get to the to the lake. punchline point of this text like so far it feels a little a bit like flowery to me kind of similar to two bunch of his impression but what I'm understanding from this end. Correct me if I'm wrong. Is that basically. There is a dynamic where the the woman's parents bring her to the man's domain initially. But then after that it's sort of the man's responsibility to a kind of appease her and treat sex with her and being with her as her domain right and something that he sort of has to approach her heroic to choose the one in charge. You don't feel like it feels like he's sort of Connie her into it. That's that's sort of where I'm getting my back a little bit. I I think in a society in which men could easily coerce their wives rape right or use pressure to have them to agree to saks. Even though they really weren't into admit you know a lighter form of rape or coercion. You know but here it's like completely reversing that and saying the woman is in charge. It's her home. You know. I think it sort of doing like the round you know. She's the balanced bias. She's the one in charge of she's the one in charge of the domestic sphere and also the merging of that with to come into her. You know if you you want to have sex with her. She's the one in charge of her body and like you need her permission and she wants to sleep on the floor. Usually on the floor right soon. I love that piece. The one where you'd have the golden bed and then it gets usually one stones so that actually is quite lovely and not having the same reaction that Oh my God is all talking talking about her Making her happy and I'm trying to figure out. Is it last section. Where he's giving this flowery? Praise your the most wonderful women have no at no other woman has anything like you. I mean it saying look. Those words might not work for you right that like their power. Look I I know that there are a lot of women who dirt during before during sex you know WanNa feel desired WanNa feel ladder. Sure there's nothing on my woman on as much as feeling like she is desired right that again and again the most beautiful woman ever so this way way. It's the express. That is possible that I'm that I'm reacting to that. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's so it's it's kind of interesting because I feel like what I'm reacting to negativity is not exactly the same thing but is like this dislike. Egalitarian sensibility that contra my like twenty-first-century brain gene of like. Why should be his job to only approach her and why like dislike one directional aw energy that's bothering me too but I think that sort of becomes like well the option to that is not both of them entreating the other the option to that is enforcing right right right completely? Changed the Pierre de and say that he helped picks initiatives. We're still going to allow for that. But it's still she's in charge. You know you have to ask her permission. You have to get her in the mood. But you're right. It's speaking to them right right. So it's like it's like don't rape her get her permission in and entreat her and flatter and all these things whereas I wish it was like you approach sometimes and she approaches you. I WanNa say it's much more than don't rape her so that may be as y you know they're both equally into it. It's an equal merging of the cells to me. I right now so that is really I think thing. That's a really important point because I think what's bothering me and you're reading it differently is that it feels like look. I WANNA have sex and so I want to get you to agree to have sex and that feels different to me that I want us to see if I get you to a place where you want to have sex too and that feels very different to me and that is how you're reading it you're probably sadly right it. The text itself has maybe we should be the last pair perfect okay. Tell me if this helps hurts. Perfect therefore let him a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife and they become one flesh all to draw her into love to clear to her once he had aroused her with all these words. It's what is written. Now the serpent was slide than any creature of the field the evil impulse now. This is a tricky tax arouse to seize her binding her with bodily desire fire rousing in her other things in which evil impulse delights until eventually what is written the woman saw. The tree was good for eating delight to the eye and took of its shoot in eight receiving leaving it willingly. He gave to her husband beside her for now. She aroused desirous Lee towards him offering passionate. Love this shows human beings how the act corresponds above so this is a tricky text because it has the serpent evil desire but the end of it sounds like the fact that he had these very physical co lusts was actually a positive thing for the next paragraph in the Zohar which I did not do actually says wait a minute. If this bloke response to above how do you think that there's such a thing and as the evil desire above and basically says sort of is like the divine has the right and the left side and anyway. It's you know getting all all right. Les Is maybe a bad thing. But maybe it's a good jockey I think that's exactly is fastened
What is the Vulgate?
"Last week on five minutes in Church history we talked about a high point in the printing of the Greek New Testament as we looked at the reformation reformation printer. Roberta's defense this week. Let's look at the Latin taxed and let's look at the official Latin text. It's known as the vogue eight we use the English word vulgar to refer to bad talk but the word vulgar was not always so pejorative or negative. It literally early means common. And so the vogue eight was simply the Bible in the common language of the people now. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew for the Old Testament. Commit Greek for the New Testament and little parts of the Bible. Our Air AMAC. But those were not the common or the vulgar language language in the fourth century AD. Latin was and the Church and the people of the church needed a Bible and their own language which at the time was Latin. So one of the Early Church Fathers Jerome led a team of translators to produce. What has come to be called the Vaal Gate. The official Latin text text of the Bible for well over a thousand years. This would be the Bible text for the Church. So let's explore it a little bit you for Jerome's involvement there was an old Latin text of the Gospels. Jerome simply called it. They to S- Latino or the old Latin addition addition and. That's where Jerome started with that addition of the Gospels and he made edits and he put it out round four hundred eighty addition started appearing others. There's an unknown to history. Started working on other parts of the Bible in the epistles under likely. Jerome's leadership is editor. And so we began to see early editions. The VOL Gate Bible published in those early years of four or five. Of course this is all pre printing press so this is all done by hand and there were more than sixty six books in the gate because it also included. The Apocryphal books will various edits. Were made to the. Vo Gate throughout the Middle Ages. Gregory the great while he was pope made a number of changes but the Vul- gate was considered the biblical text. This was the texts that wickliffe used when when he translated his English edition of the Bible. It wasn't a translation from the original languages but from the Latin Vogue eight the Latin vol- gate was the very first major book to come off of the printing press. This of Courses Gutenberg's printing press in fourteen fifty five and then along on came the reformation one of the key elements to the reformation is the renaissance cry Ad Fontes. There's there's another Latin expression and that simply means to the fount or to the source ad. Fontes you see the Vol- gate. The church's official Bible able at the time was a translation of the original. And so the reformers wanted to go back to the source to the original. Now I've said this before on five minutes instant church history. I'll say it again. In fifteen sixteen harassment's published his Greek text for the first time in fifteen sixteen coffee was introduced to Europe from Arabia. Abia and in fifteen seventeen we have the reformation so we can put the whole thing into a formula. Can't we greet New Testament plus a cup of coffee and the next thing you know you have the reformation so from our Greek and Hebrew texts from fifteen sixteen on comes the translations well as a response to the reformation. The Roman Catholic Church held a Church Council. It's known as the Council of Trent and it met from fifteen forty five to fifteen sixty three one of the many things to come out of. Trent was that the vogue eight which had been unofficially. Officially the Bible of the Church was now officially the Bible of the Roman Catholic Church. It was an remains the final authority so all matters of doctrine or dispute are settled by turning to the vogue eight. So now you know what the ball gate is. It is the Latin translation of the Bible. It came to us from the church. Father Jerome and four hundred. That's the gate. I'm Steve Nichols. Thanks for listening
