Thank you so much for having me. I am really excited to delve into this myth today and talk a little bit about Women and money and power and some of the beliefs that we might have that either service or get in the way so. Why don't you tell the listeners. What your money. Myth is that we're gonna work busting wide open so my myth is more money makes life better. It doesn't i. I know right. It's a and i can see that from somebody. I'm turning fifty next year. And i feel like i have spent forty nine of those years chasing after more money and it certainly and in many ways it has made my life better. It's given me a voice and choices. And that's why i'm such a proponent for financial literacy advocacy for women of all ages incomes and backgrounds but you can take it too far and i feel like i'm exhibit a. Right now of having taken it too far and there's a point at which money quite literally like you tip over a certain level and at that point it's not making life better So tell us a little bit about your personal story and how that ties into this myth. So i am currently dealing with some pretty serious health issues that nobody can quite identify. I have severely high inflammation rates as. I'm doing this right now. The inflammation as measured by something called a said rate and a separate of a normal person's between zero and twenty and over one hundred indicates malignancy or tumor and my said rate is ninety. Six something not good going on with my body and as we've been trying to unpeeled this onion and figure out what it's been. It appears that lot of it is just. I've been living what one of the doctors called. You've been living hot in other words. I have put work front and center of my entire life and you text me at ten p. m. i back to at ten fifteen and is just it's taken a toll on my body and my life and i it was as if my meter for what is enough was completely broken and i ironically. I'm not one of those people that love stuff. I hate shopping. But i just kept wanting to earn more and more money. And so in my case You mentioned that the podcast that i is called true wealth when we spell at w. e. l. l. t. h. I feel like i've gone into health. H. e. l. l. g. eight though. That's what i what. I mean when i say that more money doesn't always make life better while there many other aspects of it. But that's the personal one. That made me pick that myth. Sure sure and when just you know in in terms of where do you think people learn that message like. Where did you learn that if you just keep earning earning earning somehow life is going to get better so i'm of mixed race. I'm i'm half indian My mom on my dad's side. My mom is from upstate. New york and my dad came here from india with one hundred bucks and a suitcase and as you grow up with this profound sense of gratitude for having the opportunity to live in america and not be a woman in a village in rural india married off at age twelve to a six year old man and growing up we used to go to india every other summer and the poverty was just mind boggling because of course this was before the economic reforms and so the part of it was just this deep sense of obligation like i won the genetic lottery i am growing up in america and the american dream is you can be anything you want so i.

There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success.

Black Americans are twice as likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19

"In the midst of historic pandemic in America, is entering its eleventh night of protests, following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, these two storms as mercy. Oh Ken. Frazier put it earlier this week. Share a common thread. They revealed the deep inequities that run through our society. Tonight. We'll bring you an inside look at efforts to develop treatments to make a dent in this pandemic, but we start with another look into our health care system the fact that these protests are happening around the issue of racial injustice during a pandemic that. That disproportionately affects African Americans in just one example, take a look at this CDC data show that a New York City the death rate from covid nineteen is more than double for patients who are black and African American. Compared with those who are white, and these are trends that we see across the country Dr, Arnn Powell is the executive director of times up healthcare, and previously led the Office of Health Equity for the State of Virginia Department of Health Dr Powell. Thank you for being here tonight. I want to ask you about a really remarkable op ED. Stat news this week. Where you said this situation, this coming together of events was your worst nightmare. You saw this coming. Tell us about that. Yes definitely I did see this coming as a public health professional, and also as a black woman, my biggest fear, essentially that these two moments live would converge together. understanding very early on the impacts that covid nineteen. What have on the African American community? My biggest nightmare was that there would be another shooting of an unarmed black person, and that could lead to massive protests in the midst of a pandemic, and while I understand the anguish and the need, and and the the desire protests and the underlying root for protesting This is still a pandemic, and so that is the crust of my worst nightmares how we still keep people safe in public health emergency. But one of the things you also point out and one of the things you have worked on in your career is the fact that these? Inequities exist in the healthcare system. Have, you seen any evidence that this moment is a moment for progress there. We talked with Dr. she earlier today. WHO said there are both short-term and long-term efforts that need to be made. Do See any progress that is starting as a result of this. What are think you know? We can look sort of state level, and we have to live by state to actually see what interventions are being implemented. I am encouraged by some of the work of the Commonwealth of Virginia. that has a health equity leadership task force in a health equity work group that is focused specifically on mitigating. The health equity impact of Covid, nineteen and essentially very focused on ensuring that populations that are under under-resourced, getting the resources that they actually need in order to come out of this public health emergency a little bit better. We'll stick with US I want to bring in also Dr Paula Johnson, who is a former professor of medicine and Public Health at Harvard? She's also a cardiologist and she's currently the president of Wellesley College Doctor Johnson thanks for joining us on the phone. You wrote a piece recently this week a Wellesley, Alumna. who graduated from Wellesley just five years after I, did actually? She died at the end of April from covid nineteen. You said that her death tells us volumes. Tell us about Rhona Zoe. Negative it's great to be. We can do as well as a you. Dr Powell You know I'm. Very much was a brilliant young writer and a teacher in Brooklyn and had underlying asthma. and. She began to have symptoms of typical symptoms of Cova. went to the hospital. Actually twice, and it's treated for. Asthma was quite ill actually with told that she might have. Anxiety was sent home until the third time you had to call an ambulance and get to the hospital when she was intimated, and we know that this disease quickly turn from a reasonable oxygen level and the. One that is quite low and she never recovered. you know the there was a tremendous attempt to get her to transferred to a tertiary care hospital and and Haton so that she could again on one of the new trials, and with a lot of invention, actually by a lot of Wellesley alumnae. She was finally transferred, so but so sadly, she passed away. and it's it's really a story that is heartbreaking but not unfortunately unusual in terms of women of color, people of Color, but I think the mix of sex of gender and races is particularly toxic. and the lack of taking people. Consume seriously. and even care is accessible. It nearly not the adequate. And I. Know that you both have done work. Also around gender issues in healthcare is well and one of the things you wrote Dr. Johnson is that it wasn't until the nineteen nineties that women's started being included in clinical trials, and that came about after women were elected in in larger numbers to Congress after the Anita Hill Clarence Thomas hearings. Do you see this as kind of similar moment a pivotal point in history that could actually stir some change. This is such an important moment in time when we have seen both issues of sexism, racism, and the combination the great inequities in our society, really laid bare by this epidemic, both from a health and health care perspective from inequity in in in what's happening in terms of. Income. And the unemployment rate. And and on top of that to experience. the additional tragedies of killing that the seen recently on top of so many others. It's really are coming to their their of so many insult that it is a moment I think the wake up moment, and we're seeing that seeing their you know across the country and as we think about. And and women of Color, and there are health status, and their treatment It is a moment where I think there will be a greater call for more active engagement at the tables that make the decisions and I think that's where we're missing. if we are not at the table making decisions about the trials about the analysis Alpha,

Arlene blum received a PhD from UC Berkeley and has told at Stanford University and Wellesley College. But that's only a fraction of Alino story arlene the first American and all woman ascent of an opponent. One considered one of the world's most dangerous and difficult mountains. She Co lead the first women's team to climb. Denali completed the Great Himalayan traverse across the mountain ranges of Bhutan the Pollen India and height the length of the European Alps with her baby daughter on her back. She's the author of Ana Pana a woman's place which was named one of the top one hundred best adventure books of all time by National Geographic. She also wrote the highly acclaimed book breaking trail. A climbing. Life. In two thousand eighteen bloom was inducted into the California Hall of fame. She was chosen by the Guardian as one of the world's one hundred most inspiring women. Dr Bloom is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis. And what have you

"Thank you so much for coming on and spending the son of us thank you I really appreciate it very enjoyable look collagen metro west is embracing a whole new way now to try to provide healthcare for its students Wellesley College late last year announcing it was rolling out a brand new partnership with Newton Wellesley hospital they say they want to give students hospital great care without those students ever having to leave the confines of the campus this program is now being held as the first of its kind around the country my curiosity was piqued so I wanted to bring on doctor Jennifer Schwartz she's the new head of medical services at the school and she's gonna break this down for us we'll talk about the good parts in the bad part so far so doctor thanks for joining us on the show it's good to have you thank you for having me on I'm really excited to get the word out about our our new partnership you don't see partnerships like this that often really a hospital with the direct facility right on the college campus yeah no you're right as far as I know there's one other eight you know model of this kind in Maine but really were trying to pave the way on you know see if this works which so far I mean I one hundred percent I think it is an amazing bang on and you know if successful think about this as a model to you know and by other schools to participate in at some point I mean yeah I mean there's a lot of it for you know for myself on you know I was recruited to Camanche for this project and you know I was just super excited for the chance really did it integrating the campus and motivate students to kind of take charge of their health you know being here ID it'll personally I just love being part of the community and interacting with the students you know not to think clinic but you know I'm walking around if either one of the classes and I can see that merger student groups or you know in the training room and I think it's really cool that you know and collaborate wins you know other people with all of the college so you know the jeans and residential life in the broader community to kind of serve the students so you know one thing I definitely learned is that you know were a closed system we're not you know a if something happens in in one area and in effect in other areas of being able to be informed of that and be privy to that and you know help change that I think it's just really cool who exactly is staffing this facility is this a group of Newton Wellesley doctors or are these health providers that you've hired from the community to come specifically work at Wellesley yeah I know we have an awesome team so on every issue is the the core group here that we are Newton Wellesley hospital employees so we are higher to the hospital but all of us are are based one hundred percent out at the clinic so you know even though the hospital's architecture coming from I mean it really we feel like we're part of the Wellesley community and the student yes that such and I think the administration sees as a touch on so there is myself and then I have a group of great on our family medicine change nurse practitioners we have a a nurse on an LPN and some front desk staff many of the providers here have worked in other college help system on so even though this is a new model they're very familiar with the types of needs that often present themselves on a college campus so I think that works really well and you know knowing that were part of these two different groups but when we're on campus we really feel like we're part of the campus you know we have all the college email if we you know walk around the school that day administration called active if they need something so so far it has worked out really beautifully what kind of health options to the students have I mean obviously we talked about the basic stuff you know you're urging Kerr sort of needs but what other options are you offering for the students as they come in we may conduct changes on that we think about the changes so hopefully they are on you know it the services we offer here really brought services like I said we're all on family medicine training providers on so we're used as you know definitely caring for that age population but being able to do in a small procedures and clinic article logic is that help meet and counseling we see a lot of you know a cute thing often called the respiratory stuff you know we help manage you know chronic medical needs if the student had diabetes or something like that I happen to be odd I am also train imports medicine on so I also oversee the athletics piece so you know we're now able to offer you know sports medicine to not just the actually but on the entire student body which I think it's been really well received that said we don't know everything and the whole you know there are certain situations where you know we may have a question we may it may need imaging or something that we can't do right on campus on so I think that's where that collaboration really comes into play on so we can send patients to partner specialists in very easily get them appointments as needed our plan eventually hopefully actors actually bring specialist to campus so high need specialists like going to college G. an underprivileged year or things like that we hope to have on them come to clinic you know once a month once a week whatever they need it the students actually don't have to leave campus and they'll get back there we have you know political econ culture we can directly you know communicate via email with specialist and get get answers if needed you know if we need imaging or anything like that we can't we don't provide that here at the facility but there's a number quote of facilities close by two partners that we have to do is place an order and we can see the results when they come back directly communicate with the person reading it so that's been cool I think the foundation of a lot of be able to do a lot of this is just the integration of the medical record so partners has an amazing radical medical record that kind of at you know keeps us in touch with the specialist urgent care or the emergency room clinical support tool to for China like figure out how to treat a patient so whatever we write in the chart you know they can see the specialist they can go to your partners urgent care down the street and they have access to all those records and I are really quick Wadah indicate with that so I think that is sort of the the the brilliance of this collaboration just even though you know we wanted to feel like the student health center still we don't wanna you know you know we want to preserve what special about Wellesley College and be able to really tailor our care to live like this this specific student body needs on but in the background I like you know tip of the iceberg in the background there's a whole network of resources that we can and do draw on should we need it I was thinking you know what sort of services do you have for LGBT Q. students are possibly students who are who come from marginalized groups what you have to offer them so I think I'm a lot of that is still on getting shaped and formed as we figure out the need but I think having experience and background and resources at the hospital are really he we the LPN that we hired comes to us from family health and so she has a whole brands of experience with relations that she can help with I think you know we work very closely with the international studies groups and leaders on campus to kind of help in our international students still support it so I think it again having the resources just of the hospital in of the system you know recently that you with the corona virus on obviously that's a big concern for everyone especially on a closed campus with a lot of international students so you know you know I can you know call up that season fractures disease and talk to them you know the same day to kind of help serve the needs of the students so I think you know one of my goals ultimately for you know to capitalize on some of these resources is to do here have some group is it or like I said have the specialist com if there is you know a need for certain levels of care and I just feel confident we'll be able to do that eventually with what we have doctor Jennifer schwarzer the medical director of health services at Wellesley College thank you so much I really appreciate you taking the time to tell us all about this thank you doctor and I actually talked for quite some time about the program at Wellesley how the students are affected and the staff as well we have the.

Who Was Marjory Stoneman Douglas?

"After the horrific parkland florida's school shooting in february of two thousand eighteen marjory stoneman douglas became a household name for all the wrong reasons but let's take a look today at the woman for whom the school was named marjory stoneman douglas undertook a legendary in dairy fifty year crusade to save the florida everglades born in minneapolis in eighteen ninety and educated at wellesley college in massachusetts douglas moved to south florida in nineteen fifteen fifteen after a brief and disastrous marriage to join her father who was editor and founder of the newspaper that would become the miami herald she was an accomplished journalist short story writer writer and an outspoken advocate for women's suffrage anti-poverty campaigns and ultimately because it would make her famous. The everglades douglas's nineteen forty seven owed into those wetlands. The everglades river of grass was published the same year that president harry s truman dedicated the everglades national park long before environmental scientists fully understood the fragility and interconnectedness of the everglades ecosystem douglas railed against efforts by the us army corps of engineers to drain divert parts of the sprawling wetlands to to make room for agricultural and urban development. These efforts continue today. The school was dedicated in nineteen ninety when douglas was one hundred years old and still going strong along with her book. Douglas provided a new way of understanding the one point five million acre wetlands preserve rather than seeing it as merely a sprawling swamp douglas rightly described the everglades massive slow moving river of shallow water draining north to south from lake okeechobee down through the sawgrass prairies and emptying into the florida florida bay in moving pros douglas road of the hundreds of species of birds fish and flora that thrived in the precariously balanced ecosystem of the everglades the largest subtropical wilderness in the united states. She rightly recognized that this area was largely responsible for the rainfall in south florida are book begins. There are no oh other everglades in the world they are. They've always been one of the unique regions of the earth remote. Never wholly known nothing anywhere else is like them a tireless and often intimidating advocate. She founded the organization friends of the everglades at age seventy nine to fight a proposed jet port in the middle of the wetlands lends. The airport plan was scrapped. Douglas spent the rest of her life. Defending the everglades jon rothschild edited her nineteen eighty-seven autobiography voice of the river described her in the book's introduction as she appeared at a public meeting in everglades city in nineteen seventy-three.

Is you go to the Twitter page at near liberal that's near liberal, but with zero for the O he's put together a bracket kind of like match madness. He's asking people to vote for who they think is the greatest neo-liberal Schill, and Colin told me that Stacy Vinik Smith and cod. If Garcia from the indicator they're going to be in the running, but cut if in Stacey didn't know. And I told khadafy Stacey that I'd love to speak with them in a studio.

So my name is Colin I am the co founder and executive director of the neo-liberal project. And when new liberalism, basically said was markets are not like an end markets are means to end, we want wanna harness markets to make everyone wealthier to make society more equitable and into make the world a better place, and you run a competition. What does that? So I run the neoliberal Schill bracket, which is an annual competition, which we highlight people that we believe contributed positively to economics and politics in the past year, Iran, the neoliberal Schill bracket. Yes, she'll sounds like not a compliment. She'll is a compliment show me. It's it's tongue-in-cheek. It's means that you shield for position that you stood up. And you said this is what I believe in. This thing is good. Okay. Side of right. And other words she'll for goodness show. That's exactly that's exactly what was Yoda like. Schill for the force iota was a show for the. Stacy I have some good news for you too. Okay. This year, you both been selected the apart the Neal show bracket, really. You both have I've mixed feelings. Committee deliberated Wong over it. And listen to hours of podcasts. And we look through your Twitter's read everything about you. Oh my gosh. So neoliberal is this really loaded word, what does even mean near liberals have been blamed for everything from lowering wages for US factory workers to killing turtles to some near liberalism, Maine's using markets and the government to make a soul, richer and half you to others.

He told me you can trace the word back to a handful of economics at one conference in France in nineteen thirty eight there was a gathering and Paris called the Walter Lippmann colloquium, and it was there that they that they took they chose this term neoliberalism to describe what they were doing which is trying to rethink liberalism. After the great depression, liberalism, not liberal in the way, we often talk about left wing liberals in the US, you know, people go online to own the libs, but classical liberalism, it's a collective where all those thinkers who like moving against the church after the nice on. David Hume, Adam Smith, David Ricardo. And and then associate those with political beliefs of free trade free markets are the rights individuals to see their self interests that kind of thing they organized a workshop in in Paris. And they all get got together there were intellectuals industrialists journalists politicians, what kind of things they believe in these imbedded groups of liberals there was a vision of an interconnected world economy that they felt needed to be kind of fought for and restored. They believed in the need for conditional free trade. They believed in the need for the free movement of capital over borders as a way to ensure kind of interdependence that would itself hopefully guarantee peace in the long run.

Which is Mr. Ruskin states is just not a bad number all in all he calls it a dollar friendly. At report is we migrate into two thousand nineteen. We got much to talk about we'll touch on career here with truly one of America's esteemed scholars on their prefers David Wilson with the equity report where do you begin today? I'll tell you. Are you where to begin? You know, you've got this multibillion dollar deal in the works. Bristol Myers Squibb buying cell, gene. Actually, seventy four billion dollars is what we're talking about. Well, Bristol, second largest shareholder Wellington management came out late yesterday against the deal. They said it isn't in their words and attractive path for Bristol Myers. And so you're definitely seeing a reaction in the share sell one of the most active stocks in early trading down more than eight percent in Bristol Myers at the moment up more. And you gotta wonder I mean, this was expected in Wellington is a venerable firm to say, the least, but David you gotta wonder after what we witnessed in craft ten days ago. Some of these institutional heavyweights are going, wait a minute. Exactly. But it's interesting to see it come from Wellington because they're not a firm for being activists David's absolutely spot on. I can't remember the last time Wellington did this. They are good term investors, and they do their homework and for them to come out and say, this is really make statement in my opinion, gets your attention. What is your all? Right. Let's talk earnings. You've got square down. Five percent dependent processors first-quarter earnings forecasts trailed analysts average estimate and Bloomberg survey square cited higher costs tied to investments in its business. You've got booking holdings down nine percent. They own booking dot com. Priceline kayak. And so on the line travel companies profit projection for the first quarter was also lower than estimates.

All right. We gotta mentioned box this companies online data storage down one t two percent in early trading revenue for their latest quarter missed estimates for the first time since the company went public back in twenty fifth. And on top of that earnings and sales projections for their fiscal year. That's now started came up short. David wilson. Thank you so much not enough time right now with someone who has joined us before cancer and moon is at Brookings, but that barely describes her icon position at a small school outside. Boston known as Wellesley college to bring up to speed, folks. Wellesley college literally pioneered Asian studies zillion years ago, professor moon thrilled to have you with us. Today, if you were lecturing the young innocent freshman at Wellesley college today, what's the first thing and tell them about North Korea. We have a technical difficult. I think we do Ken, what do you think? No. Okay. We already lost the line there. I'm not sure what happened Katharine moon Wellesley college. And we'll try to get her back again. Sure there. You are. Okay. Good morning. If you were if you were lecturing freshman wells, either so eager to get in the front of the Asian studies program at Wellesley. What's the first thing? You would show did pushes against our common myths on Korea. Comments against North Korea that we need to unveil. I would say the first thing is it's a real country at play hardball diplomatic Saturday and has a domestic audience needs to pay attention to even though it's a dictatorship. Does not run it alone and needs to have the backing of especially the military and some members of the population. Help us with the president's constant theme as the summit fell apart in two days ago, when there was happy handshakes, and the constant theme is his belief that North Korea can be a force of capitalism. Going forward can do the Asian. Tiger thing can be like Laos or Cambodia and move forward. Or is there a different equation that you see? I think Donald Trump is doing the right rhetoric to try to raise the expectations of the North Korean people and its leadership to step up, and it is aligned with conjunctions own desire to develop his Konami that is sincere many observers believe that but in terms of how. It's. Are they capable of growing economically into another dragon or tighter how fast and how fast and how they will is the question, and I think those are the two areas where I would take issue with Mr. Trump. One thing. I want to mention it that, you know, even though the news headlines said that this is a failed summit. Because walked away with nothing. And basically the negotiations broke down. I looked at it a little differently. I think actually this was a good summit in the sense that it was constructive. We finally got to see that that Mr Kim Jong-Un ten play real hard ball, and they have real clear bars about what the US actually work with North Korea toward denuclearization, which is full lifting of the sanctions. And I think that it's very good for Mr. Trump to realize that his own personal charm offensive has its limits. And that now you need to leave it to the people who are experts to really thrashed out. And it'll take a a lot of time. So professor moon who do you think needs a deal more the US or North Korea here? Well, the US needs a deal. And the question is is it Mr. Trump eating a deal? He wanted mostly progress toward the Nobel prize for himself. That is not something that hidden. But also, I think for the US government if we are serious about. Preventing nuclear Galatian military escalation in East Asia and trying to bring some level of cooperation and peace on the peninsula after seventy plus years. Yes, it's very very important. And it is considered North Korea is considered a major nuclear major security threat to the United States, but North Korean US give because Kim has to have economic development in order to survive. And so both sides have a pretty loaded game here. Okay. I'll have to leave there just to show does that we need to get you back on soon as we can Katharine moon. She is at Wellesley college in the Brookings institute there on the many careers is Paul what I didn't get to with hers new dialogue between China and North Korea. You should we bet once he gets off the train from annoy or the plane, whatever how soon will he be in Beijing? Breaching? I think you'll I I suspect he would be there very quickly for debriefing to figure out what next steps there are if any in the near term because very much so been doing this since one AM this morning. As we saw in folks to go back to one m there was just a terse announcement everything will be moved to hours forward. Yeah. This is I think. The moon's take on it that it was. Okay summit. That's really putting a positive spin on. What looks like a shockingly? Development. We're really nothing happened. And I'm not sure we advanced anything. I'm going to leave that to the experts, but I will say that lunch was set. Nobody showed up for lunch. I mean, that's like, you know, you set lunch before Duke UNC. Nobody's nobody shows TV and was that's one of a cancer mood. Thank you so much Wellesley college right now negative five on futures. A vix fourteen point eight three this is Bloomberg.

Good evening, Dan. Conversation around comes around. I couldn't be happier right now. A couple of things first of all wealthy. I don't think anyone. I don't think it really matters. He puts a sign up to the White House. We want to be a four week and be a full. But I mean, that's you know, it's his business. It's his frigging property. You want to cry? Because I know I think the guy suffers from Trump derangement syndrome. By the way. I I know that you know, you academic. I think this guy teaches at Wellesley eighteen because they're wealthy which what once again show. Yeah. You know, it's it's sad. Because somebody's going to send a kid to wells. And if that child supports the president that child might get back right from that guy, just because the guys to prejudice. How did we told you this story? I think I've told it to some people Paul, but you as a teacher will appreciate it. This has to be God twenty years ago. Now, I'm working on a on a Sunday morning shift and television at WBZ, and I don't know why be I was filling in for somebody. Normally, I work weekdays for my type virtually Mitek rip. So there was a swat sticker that was painted on a Saturday night on the side of a building in Wellesley. And so it was very large very ugly. And we went out to to cover. The story is probably nine o'clock on a Sunday morning. When we got there. They were trying to see in blast as well. They should this insignia of hate off the side of the building. And there was some people looking and commenting. And so I interviewed a few people at one point. There was a car that pulled up from North Carolina. And there was like a mom and a daughter was September early September. And it turned out that the young woman was a freshman at Wellesley college, and she was being driven to school by her mom. So I thought oh, this is great. I'll ask her. So I asked her I said, what is your reaction to that? That's that insignia over there. And she looked at it. She had no clue what it was. And and she said, I think I've seen that before. Now, I'm thinking great. I'm going to get a good interview. And she said is that the soi Healy? I here's woman a high school. Well, now, a college freshman who is very has been admitted to Wellesley college and could not identify a swastika. Pretty sad called wealthy calls. Well, pretty sad commentary on the education system that don't know anything about history. It's really sad that the kids that don't know anything at all about the past. I think the passes last PF they have no clue what happened. Forty fifty sixty years ago. But anyway, I just wanted to say that out you thought. Yeah. Yeah. I was a little upset when I when I was thinking about it today. Because of the simple fact that we were all the people that ran against him by the Republican party. Background. If anybody running against him and ever done a check on him. And it seems that you know, publicized that he never would be governor of Virginia. Well, first of all the thing. That's really interesting is if it appears in a yearbook again, you're an educator. You know that yearbooks a poured over that's part of apple research. But it's also you would every ten or twenty years people pull out their yearbook and someone in one thousand nine hundred ninety four or two thousand four or maybe two thousand fourteen must have looked at that page and said well, north oh my God. I mean. It's inexplicable. That's that's the case of political malpractice, whoever the campaign consultants were for Ed Gillespie who was the guy was running against him for governor of Virginia. No. That's it. He's. Because. Something like that would have disqualified him right from running anyway. Critic could never backed him. Think about the voters black voters who probably voted for this guy to put him in the governor's office. And to see this story tonight. What they must be thinking. Well, you know, it's it's sad. State in the simple fact that he won't even be awesome after mid twenties picture is him. Hundred to one he's not in the black face. He's a he's a. Donna my mind. That's why he won't come out and say it. You can say and the black face you could say conversation with that good for an African American of my today about this. And we were saying something said. One time ago people used to dress up like that in in. I said, and they used to parade on stage and everything and not that it was right? But that was just a way of doing a black character. I said when I was a kid once in a while people would put black face on. And I said we never thought anything about it. Wait. When were you a kid, Paul? You weren't doing that in nineteen Eighty-four were, you know, no way back in nineteen sixty you know, but I it some kids are doing that. I'm not saying it was right or any pe- people said it because it was on the show. Aimlessly? Yeah. But but yeah, that's why this is nineteen Eighty-four when he did that. I know it's a different world now. But. The KKK thing. I'm sorry. You're stand beside a gay guy with the KKK outfit on you. Can't tell me that you you're not a racist.

"Are you happier? Now, not sweating the small stuff so much or is is it really getting harder as you get older, especially as a woman follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio. My guest today. Mary Pifer psychologist and author of the new book women rowing north navigating life's currents and flourishing as we age when a play this clip from Nobel prize winning writer, Tony Morrison. She gave the commencement address at Wellesley college in two thousand four she said that the graduates had her condolences if their time in college had been the best years of their lives. She spoke about the joys of adulthood about getting older and growing up throughout your life. There is nothing. Believe me more satisfying more gratifying than true adults. Hood, the adulthood that is the span of life before you the process of becoming one is not inevitable. It's chievements is a difficult beauty and intensely hard one glory. I love that Mary Pifer difficult. Beauty and intensely hard one glory to get oh, she's a wonderful writer. So her speaking to young women at Wellesley college reminded me of your wildly popular book into in nineteen Ninety-four, reviving feely a- where you talked about the cultural perceptions of adolescent girls and how they didn't match your experience working with young girls. Tell me tell me what kind of book in these books. I mean what? Adolescent, teen girls and women entering old age have in common. Well, they're both entering a portal a portal, and they're both at a point where they're poised for growth and change, and they're getting very little cultural education on how to do that properly. So one of the reasons I wrote reviving failure is I was working as a therapist. I was seeing almost fulltime teenage girls in my office. And I was continually struck by how different the situation was than the cultural stories about teenage girls and their families when I wrote that book, the cultural story about a teenage girl who was filling depressed or anxious or angry or misbehaving was that she was from a dysfunctional family. And on the contrary with I was observing his the kind of parents who bring their daughters to private practice therapist, and are very concerned about them tend to be pretty healthy families, and what was happening to girls was they were dealing with the talk. Exit culture and getting absolutely no, good information. Nor were the adults around them on how to be healthy resilient people in this life stage. So this book is very similar. I hope it's what I would really like to see happen with this book. Jane is it starts a whole new cultural conversation about the concept of aging and the potentials for growth in this life stage. You know, if we don't believe in our potential to grow, we're unlikely to grow, and if we believe in the truth of the cultural scripts about us, we're likely to live at the scripts so for me, it's a terrible tragedy. If women if all of us aren't given opportunities to grow and develop into all we can be the board is full of calls here. Mary Lemieux take a couple here at the top Ellen in Clearwater, Florida.
