Colleges Are Going Big to Incentivize Student Vaccinations

"Colleges are trying to convince their students to get the covert vaccine with all kinds of incentives. Free parking free zip-lining even free tuition. Npr's listen adnia covers higher. Education has been looking into this morning. Good morning before. We start with the incentives. A lot of colleges are also saying. This is non-negotiable right. You have to be vaccinated. That's right more than six hundred colleges are requiring the vaccine for fall and once we get a full. Fda approval on one dot. Number will probably go up. I should just note that colleges have long required vaccine so it's not completely new. A few private colleges have announced fees for students who aren't vaccinated but for the most part schools are trying positive reinforcements with some pretty flashy incentives. One fund one is the college of charleston wants ninety percent of students vaccinated women happens. The school's president is going to sit in a dunk tank and let students take a shot at him. That is only an incentive for a certain type of what else did you find. College is doing well. The big one obviously is that you could win thousands of dollars in tuition costs. So that's happening. A number of places including including purdue where ten vaccinated students could win up to nine thousand dollars which is in state tuition for a year Our interns nee. Dave found around the country students could win football tickets free laptops at west virginia university. They're offering two hundred and fifty dollars gift. Cards to chick-fil-a. That's a lot of chicken but i think for free tuition. At ohio university students could win a photo. Shoot dinner with the men's basketball coach. Or and i love this. One have a drink named after them at an on. Campus coffee shop. Of course campuses are also hosting vaccine clinics at orientation and moving days to make that shot easy.

The Cicadas Are Turning Into Dismembered, Zombie Sex Fiends

"I've talked about brood. X the currently emerging group of periodical. Cicadas a number of times on this show in preparation for their return across the eastern us. But now that they're here. Things have gotten even weirder than some of us expected quoting. Npr a fungus called massive spore which can produce compounds of cathinone. Amphetamine infects a small number of cicadas and makes them lose control. The fungus takes over their bodies causing them to lose their lower abdomen and genitals and it pushes their mating into hyper drive. End quote or as reported tear. Gulshan described it on twitter cicadas. They're tripping on shrooms losing their genitals and have a rampant std problem incredible stuff and quotes tripping on shrooms. You say well not exactly although there is apparently another type of fungi called opio. Cortisol which attacks cicadas while. They're underground pushing them to emerge onto the forest floor early where they then die and the fungus sprouts feta's body into a mushroom. Yeah it's wild but this other one missile bore which is infecting about ten percent of brood. X cicadas right now. It causes symptoms. That are making some scientists. Refer to the infected cicadas as zombies and flying salt shakers of death. Here's a bit more on how it all goes down quoting the washington post periodical cicadas or those that appear on a fixed schedule. I encounter the fungus when they're just underground as the insects. Climb from tree roots to the soil surface and away to specific temperature. The fungus germinates infects the cicadas said. Brian love it. A postdoctoral researcher at west virginia university. Who co wrote a twenty twenty study about the fungus about a week after the cicadas emerge signs of the fungus. Start to appear. The spores forced the back half of the insects bodies to fall off love.

"Her name just prior to her death at age 101 in 2020 Johnson won the presidential Medal of Freedom, received an honorary doctorate from West Virginia University and was spotlighted in the Oscar nominated film Hidden Figures. Northrop Grumman named its new cargo craft the SS Katherine Johnson, following the company's tradition of naming new spacecraft after influential figures in the history of space flight. In a news release, Northrop Grumman said Johnson's work quote quite literally launched Americans into space, and her legacy continues to inspire young black women every day, unquote Yes, I hired Johnson in the 19 fifties at the dawn of the space age.

The Mystery Of The Mummified Twinkie

"Colin purring in Pennsylvania wanted the world to know about his accidental fungal experiments involving twinkies. So what happened next? So he posted photos on twitter and they were seen by two scientists, Brian Love it and Matt Casson at West Virginia University, they study Fungi Casson says fungi are everywhere and they have this amazing ability to break down all kinds of substances. Fungi growing on jet fuel. Wow. So he means fungi can grow on pretty much anything and everything. Yeah and in the past their lab has tested how well they grow in peeps. You know that classic marshmallow tree tour hasn't says fungi found the peace challenging because you know they don't have a lot of water in them in a way they're kind of like an extreme environment, right? The food industry has crafted the ability to to make foods that have a long shelf life. You know I could test that out right now I got some old peeps in my house my kid. Kept from Easter like years ago. But anyway back to the twinkies. So these researchers were intrigued by Collins Posts on twitter and Colin was only too happy to mail his twinkies right to their lab. They suspected that whatever had mummified the twinkie was some kind of fungus but they wanted to confirm that and then find out exactly what kind of fungus. Okay. So twinkie mummy gets shipped to the lab obviously, they had to open it up. I'm guessing and as I look at the photo, the plastic wrapping around the shriveled twinkie looks like it's been vacuum-sealed like it sucked inward like. Right right. So the scientists thought maybe the fungus got in before the package was sealed, and then as it grew the fungus was using up more air or oxygen than it was putting out I mean, here's how love it described it. You end up with a document. And very well, vacuum may have halted. The fungus is ability to continue to grow We have the snapshot of what we were sent but who knows if this process occurred five years ago and he just only noticed it now yeah five years that's forty times the shelf life of a twinkie in eternity for twinkie anyway they had expected this horrific smelled hit them. When they opened the packaging, the smell would possibly kill one of us. But because of them of -cation there there really was no smell at all, which was really a pleasant surprise. So twinkie mommy is unwrapped smells like nothing what happened next? Well, they took a quick look with a magnifying scope and Juhasz some signs of fungal spore formation on the twinkie. So that suggested a fungus of some kind and the next step was to take a sample. So casting used a bone biopsy tool to sort of drill through the tough outer layer of this grey mummified twinkie, we certainly hit the marrow of the twinkie and quickly realized that there was still some. Cream filling on the inside. So, the inside was still cream-filled. Yeah that was a surprise they thought it would be sort of hard all the way through of it says, whatever did this to the twinkie it seems that the fungus was more interested in the cake on the outside. Then the filling on the inside see, this is a smart fungus because cake is clearly the superior part of the twinkie same with Orios same with cupcakes. You know what I'm talking about right now I don't know to me. It's like the combination of two things that's key. So I can't really separate them in my mind. That's fair I. Accept that. So the scientists have taken samples from the twinkie, do they go about determining what kind of fungus growing on it? They actually sampled multiple twinkies. Okay. So one was the mummified twinkie we've been talking about the other was the second twinkie from Collins box that was not mummified. The one that was just you know marred, it had that weird little blemish on the outside of it, and then they had this control scientific experiment they need scientific control, which was a what they called an as symptomatic twinkie from the same box. So they put those samples into lab dishes with nutrients commonly used to grow fungi, and from that little blemish twinkie the one. With just the little. Marc, they were able to grow a very common indoor fungus called Klee does sport him common indoor fungus, right? It's one of the most common airborne molds worldwide. Okay. So what about from the mummified twinkie? Okay. So that's where it gets even more interesting. Love. It says, they have not been able to grow any fungus from that particular sample. It may be that we don't have any living spores on store certainly dying depending on the fungus they could I very quickly and remember because the twinkie had been sort of vacuum sealed by whatever was going on there. You know it seems like it couldn't grow anymore inside it's wrapping. So there's truly perhaps no life in this twinkie. Well, the scientists you know weren't going to let that stop them they. Samples from both the marred and the mummified twinkies and he sent off to DNA sequencing company and twelve hours. Later, they got the results back the mark twinkie was a ninety nine point six percent matched to a fungus called close Boreham zeile film. The mummified twinkie was eighty one percent to a closely related clear does for him species. Plato's Boreham Tenuous Sim. CASSON's says DNA from the mummified twinkie was pretty degraded. So they actually probably are the same fungus. I'm so amazed they were able to identify these fungi from these twinkies. It is the mystery of the twinkie over I remain confident that science will continue already one researcher Kate Wallace at the University of Illinois contacted them and asked for a bit of the mummified that she wants to put in a scanning electron microscope. One that can get really really close. Up Images and hopefully you know see something cool and Kasim says he's not turning his lab entirely over to twinkie studies but you know they could still do some more research. We thought about inoculating some healthy twinkies with some cletus forum may be doing some transplants with the bone marrow biopsy tool where we replace a healthy plug with a fungus colonize plug. And see what happens from there. This twinkie line of research is just relentless. There's so many of questions still I mean what's the overall moral of the story here that you can try to hold onto the past but nothing gold can stay not even a twinkie well, that's one moral I mean another moral of the story is that Colin, purring ten should've listened to his mother and had more respect for expiration dates but you know people are really drawn to this myth that twinkies are immortal. I should mention we did reach out to hostess brands for comment on this story and I have not heard back from them at all You know the mummy twinkie is this different kind. Of disturbing vision of what the future could hold for twinkies and you know for all of us I mean Matt and says, this story seems to be gripping for people maybe because the grey mummified twinkie is such a dramatic contrast to this golden iconic twinkie that lives in our memories when those memories are tainted by like a visual reality like the twinkie experiment, we're kind of like caught off guard and we're like wait no, that's a symbol of my childhood. You can't take that from me to. So basically, like you said, emily, nothing lasts forever. You know here's Brian Love again, we're living in a time where we're all really grappling with our mortality eventually, all of us are future fungi. On. Seeing. That is sort of facing the the reality. Of. Holly and Our destination now, I did not expect a twinkie experiment to be a meditation on the human. Condition

So they actually probably are the same fungus. I'm so amazed they were able to identify these fungi from these twinkies. It is the mystery of the twinkie over I remain confident that science will continue already one researcher Kate Wallace at the University of Illinois contacted them and asked for a bit of the mummified that she wants to put in a scanning electron microscope. One that can get really really close. Up Images and hopefully you know see something cool and Kasim says he's not turning his lab entirely over to twinkie studies but you know they could still do some more research. We thought about inoculating some healthy twinkies with some cletus forum may be doing some transplants with the bone marrow biopsy tool where we replace a healthy plug with a fungus colonize plug. And see what happens from there. This twinkie line of research is just relentless. There's so many of questions still I mean what's the overall moral of the story here that you can try to hold onto the past but nothing gold can stay not even a twinkie well, that's one moral I mean another moral of the story is that Colin, purring ten should've listened to his mother and had more respect for expiration dates but you know people are really drawn to this myth that twinkies are immortal. I should mention we did reach out to hostess brands for comment on this story and I have not heard back from them at all You know the mummy twinkie is this different kind. Of disturbing vision of what the future could hold for twinkies and you know for all of us I mean Matt and says, this story seems to be gripping for people maybe because the grey mummified twinkie is such a dramatic contrast to this golden iconic twinkie that lives in our memories when those memories are tainted by like a visual reality like the twinkie experiment, we're kind of like caught off guard and we're like wait no, that's a symbol of my childhood. You can't take that from me to. So basically, like you said, emily, nothing lasts forever. You know here's Brian Love again, we're living in a time where we're all really grappling with our mortality eventually, all of us are future fungi. On. Seeing. That is sort of facing the the reality. Of. Holly and Our destination now, I did not expect a twinkie experiment to be a meditation on the human. Condition

How NBA players are using the Oura smart ring to warn of coronavirus

"What exactly does the Smart Ring Do, and and let's start with what its original purpose is, and what it was marketed for initially sure, so the has been around for two years and never got to review. It was one of these things I meant to, but it is a it is. A fitness rang health ring much. Much like the ring made by motive years ago, it checks heart rate it contract sleep it contract motion and activity, but it also tracks temperature. The temperature sensor is the interesting part because there aren't any other wearables that do that, but it's not necessarily the temperature sensing. You think it can't give you like an actual body. Reading of like you know what hundred point seven or whatever? It's a relative temperature that's. Night to show temperature fluctuations plus or minus degrees Fahrenheit. That's mentioned. Just show your changes in your baseline, so to speak, and so how is it being used as a early warning system for covid nineteen? Now been working with a couple of research teams UCSF has a study that you can opt into in the APP. That's been going on for a while. That's asking people to log You know their own moods and symptoms to try to study correlations. That's similar to what other companies are doing trying to see. If there could a way could help connect to symptoms and krona virus, but those researchers are seeing that you can with with the temperature capabilities see signs of illness symptoms a couple of days in advance of when you would normally perceive them. That could line up with the couple of day. Lead time that people believe might might be you know a symptomatic spread period now I'm not a another doctor. My research scientist from talking to researchers working with this and I've been I've been really curious about what that could actually mean. Another research team at Rockford Neuroscience Institute West Virginia University. Has Been Looking at trying to create a health forecasting APP that they have in place that they're using with with frontline workers and seeing if you could provide you know a couple of day pre forecast of whether you're likely to be getting sick. And built on a similar idea of using temperature mainly as a way to pick up ways that you're you're readings are hinting towards the sign of sickness, but not necessarily a sign of coronavirus, just a sign of sickness general from what they perceive. They claim it's like eighty nine percent. Accurate in predicting so far signs of upcoming sickness that will be when you get a coronavirus. You know that's when you get tested. That's when you would maybe. Go into work in some future world where we go back to work, and you know the reason why folks might be more familiar, we're now is because NBA players are supposed to be wearing them as they. Get set to kick off their their special. BUBBLE SEASON DOWN IN FLORIDA. Yes so NBA players have been wearing this of chosen this this wearable. OPT in program and. Coaches that that can look at the stats get kind of a distilled subset of the stats that aware of the ring, now like the consumer version would get so I see all these different pieces of information. There is a respiration. There's heart rate variability temperature these are estimated again. A couple of those key factors of four of them were pulled out and turn into a risk score. That idea is that if you seem like you're, you're scoring significantly high on that, you would Pull yourself out. Get Kobe test, and that type of thing. But you. You get something like that on the on the order APP itself. There's a score, the kind of shows like a whole bunch of factors and talks about like you know Harry feeling today. It sometimes it correlates with our. I feel sometimes a dozen so. Same thing asleep scores but it will let me remind me of like how I'm sleeping. And how much I'm you know? Both bedtime in some element of restiveness, how much I can do about that is is the other thing, but that the NBA is using again is kind of a pre screening tool for those who were bubbling Brian. So you're obviously not an NBA player, Sarah Scott, but how how are you using this? And how does that differ from what they're using this for? As as Early Warning System, yeah, so again as curious and I've not been doing any of those those things and I'm not using any advance APPS. I'm just using the consumer version and seeing what it's like so I just live with it. I've been wearing three months since late April. All the time and what have been noticing is that a lot of ways I don't notice anything because I. Just live my life, and then I check the APP in Awhile, and it says okay. This is sleeping and I tried to make myself sleep better, but like a lot of sleep tracking things. I don't act on those things as well. They should still go to bed super late, even knowing do. But the temperature thing is mostly been fluctuating around the same thing, a little down a little, if I who knows I, haven't knock on wood. I haven't gotten sick over this period. If I had actually gotten sick or perceived something that might be kind of interesting so hard to tell in that vacuum, but. I just wear. It will give some testing with it and I'm curious. I don't think it's it wouldn't replace a fitness watch because it's not as detailed as that and the one thing that the ring is, it's totally invisible with how it shows stuff. It's this nettle ring with no readouts doesn't buzz no buttons and you'd have to check the APP and also if you don't know if it's running out of batteries on the seven day battery life. Until you check the APP where you get a notification from your phone, so there's times where just went dead, and then I had like five days of no readings because I forgot to charge it, which is not ideal if you want a wearable, that's going to help provide early detection for people in a future workplace so that that's one challenge with it. The other thing is talking to the researchers and thinking about what would we all be doing with this? The NBA is bubbling now in a world where you go back to work and have some sort of you know wearable screening tool, which is what people are imagining. Its Eye, contact tracing unit everyone to opt in. And that means rock varner sciences. He was also trying to build towards. Maybe eventually a ways like at that would show ideally like where signs of potential illness popping up through crowdsourcing, but much contact tracing that requires people to participate and right now you still have questions. People are still refusing to wear masks so I mean. The. The degree to which you get people to all agree to wear wearable. Seems extremely optimistic and then when you deal with things like public. It adds all sorts of other complications so an office. Could all agree to do it? But how do you? What do you do in the larger world? I think those are questions. It still hadn't been worked out because the systems are only as good as everyone else's reporting, and just to be clear that this is not a cheap option. This is not cheap solution. Right? Like how much does this thing go for? And how easy is it the by one? The pretty easy to buy, and they're not that cheap there four hundred dollars so. Yeah the falls line with with. Your standard good smartwatch or Apple Watch or thing like that, but you know it's made like titanium plastic on the interior and It's it feels nice, but that's a lot of money, and I think some people will really like it because it's convenient. Enter praying and not a watch Some of the researchers also pointed out that a doctor's and frontline workers don't like wearing rings because they're not good that the germs could get in there. LEXIE! Shoes she's wearing. It didn't like it because of swelling and for exercise, the ring didn't feel ideal was uncomfortable for her and you have to get fitted. You have to get a particular size on the ring. They send you a sizing kit, so if your size changes, that's not great. A watch is adjustable, so there's a lot of things that are weird about it, but I think. It opens interesting questions about what temperature could possibly do. On, wearables in I'm really curious, what will pops up after this? It seemed like from your experience that made you call it somewhat invisible and the data I mean how ultimately how useful is this data? Have you used it to change your life for because you sort of hinted that that you looked at the data? then. It hasn't really changed anything, but like ultimately is this useful? In terms of changing my life. No, because you're right. You know this reminds me of like the talk. I had with with Kevin Lynch on Apple. Watch and apple could be making a lot of decisions on this to why they're only doing. Certain elements of sleep tracking. You know they're just doing the bedtime. Wake up is they claim that the rest is not actionable? Now they call so it could be that apple isn't fully develop the rest of the tools to their liking. But I think that's true in terms of when you get sleep scores like on this. What do I really do with like that? I didn't rest well enough you. There's really not much you can. Do you try to get to bed earlier? Maybe try to take it easy. Me could try to like take on yourself, and that's what the APP recommends like. You know you're reading the scores. Great. Go do it today, or it's not great. Take care a little bit today and I think that's interesting. So in that sense did change the way I would perceive some days I go. Hey, I'm not a great readiness score. just be a little easy on myself. What I know that just waking up and just feeling like crap. Probably you know I think some of these things correlate with how you would normally feel. Feel anyhow, if you're a self aware, but I think the getting back to work thing, the bigger question which is like you know I hate to even leave with that in the story, but it's what people think about about the possible Kobe awareness. I can't yeah for me I'm I you know I? Pi- blood pressure. I'm not going to put myself at risk going out. Out in the world, even if there's a sliver of it and then if I don't know that the APP, the rest of the world is behaving in a responsible way. Then I don't want to put myself there and that doesn't have to do other a wearing ring. It's like so the hard part. There was a halo over everyone's head. That said you know yes I. I am using the device I. Am I am part of your network? Then that's bubbling I. think that would be. That might be a different story, but again. None of these data things that these research programmes are absolute yet. These are all experiments, and all the researchers things a tip of the iceberg, so look how long people have been researching sleep and possible signs of. OF APNEA. or All. These research programmes with wearables they can go on for years and the NBA is very much an experiment. We don't know at all how that's going to turn out

"We were the inspiration for the start of your actual yourself from the standpoint of your daughter and then your son in your token right the end about will be the coaches were thinking kind of a bubble D. two D. three but you actually said that the he got position a new division one he did and that was his dream and you know as I share with student athletes daydream without a plan is simply a wish right right now that's a common added so we we put a plan in place to help them achieve that goal you know when the coach told us he's a bubble detuning cricket well we looked them like that four hundred and seventeen schools in the interview later in the division one schools now you're talking about six hundred seventy seventy two football programs within NCAA how do you even begin to to you know analyze and and and and position yourself for an opportunity and a lot of parents what they run into today's is again it's a lot of you know offer chasing through blind hope right they they they put up some video they posted you too Twitter wherever maybe fill out some athlete profile on a static webpage and they pray and hope that they'll one day get discovered that's not how the process works works and and offers aren't you know issued by accident so what we did is we took a systematic data driven approach after a lot of lessons learned by the way we went to our first can't we show up on campus at three hundred fifty kids at this one football camp university of Maryland College Park and I asked the coach as a coach how do you evaluate all this talent he looks at me with a straight face Negros Craig we can't do just too many kids somewhere okay then we looked over at the wide receiver coach and I realized we don't even know what he's looking for so we we left a camp with two things that day one was a lesson on how not how not to go about the recruiting process in the second thing was a T. shirt because that's about all you're going to live when you have that many fifty Bucks you do if you run around a little bit do a couple reps and then you've got a nice T. shirt right so we came back we got smarter bill and what we did is just started building I look for tools in there these recruiting companies again they all focus on exposure but nothing that will really help okay where should I spend my time I can't you can only do about five camps this summer because they they basically run through June the football season you know football camps go through remote sports camps and some over the summer there's about five weeks that you can attend camps and really you have you know you can do one one a week you know they happen on the weekend someone during the week so how do we make the best use of our time and a lot of them overlap so like we're the best schools trust to go you know need their help on university campuses so I start to build a spreadsheet and this is just coming you know having played the game top of mine right what hope all programs typically recruit smaller quicker faster slot receivers and I knew a little bit but what about those parents who have no clue right right you mention financing and you really didn't know much about fixing before you saw nothing about you know what I'm going to the store for those of you know who don't know where do you start so what it is I started building stretches I went to the athletic programs in all of those schools and I'm pulling down rosters and cold and all those things and not jump over to the activity academic website and I'm pulling down emissions requirements GPA SAT all those things and I built a spreadsheet I get exhausted after doing about twenty of those while but I take that twenty in a Narragansett top five those became the schools that we start to pursue this we went to camp since they don't start to cultivate relationships with coaches and work at a high school coach in conjunction to help create opportunities for checks and that's how that's the data driven systematic approach that we took to get him a division one opportunity to play the word of the West Virginia University mountaineers oh man that's cool it was the top top FBS big twelve program so we achieved it but again it doesn't happen by accident and so those hardware yeah and so what happens after navigating that process I had parents ask me how you do it can you help me answer is of course and I can help one family at a time but you know with about twenty schools but the question was and you know with my background as an entrepreneur coming out of the intelligence community supporting the intelligence community I work with a lot of data sciences data folks I'm like what if there was a way that we could predict the best outcomes and help navigate this process much more efficiently you know and save yourself time money and frustration well yeah but you've been focusing on the parents side of getting there can in Littleton what we look for the response from the coaches and the schools on the other side of it a lot because we create comparable efficiencies for them the high school coach I mentioned earlier we make his job easier because hit the hardest job he has is convincing mom and dad dad your kids just might not be at the town level that Clemson LSU or Alabama needs right that all by the way there's some great you know division two school right that your son could play it and you can get the same money and get a great education right in in the college is the same thing I'll tell you a quick story Molly call Hey coach at Bates college in Maine one of the best academic institutions in this country he's trying to recruit a kid out of I won't say where out of northeast right he's trying to prove him to come up to to Bates the young man he had a full ride offer so this young man the young man's mom would not allow him to get on a plane to go take the recruiting trip now why is she in a web based college was oh my gosh so a past almost all right opportunity wanted best universities and academic institutions in the country because she just didn't know well part of what we do for them as we provide the research as well as the analytics and predictive outcomes and so coach hall is like if we show up as a great fit for you match on on route please you don't know that there's an opportunity to get a full ride offer here well I actually had a similarly head to yeah your whole say where or who the person is right this was not from the sports but even just from an academic yeah young girl straight a student gets awful all riders plus five thousand right from there so should everyone plus a five thousand dollar a semester started on right to ever do turn around why and when right because that's where her friends were going in right and she you know she got tuition and books but you still have to cover her housing no sorry while you're going through the loan unlike but is not ready to explode absolutely but a lot of it is they don't have the data don't have the data or the date on the stand what that opportunity really.

sure that your your logic in men's health needs or Oregon Kerr of where all this love is to grow Hey there was also this and today we're very lucky to win by a great friend of the practice and awesome surgeon you know I love surgeons I know you do yes I love it when they say that you say you're asked to that's right I have doctor Eric Lowe with capital surgeons group that thanks a lot for joining us there you're welcome thank you Hey where did you go to medical school West Virginia University west by god Virginia I wish your residency same West Virginia University in Charleston West Virginia what words are going to share here nothing if if if it was another Texas school out I would go talk to him but my wife recently told me that when I make fun of other people's medical school it is nice but it's so funny the problem for me came when West Virginia joined the big twelve and then I went to UT for undergrad yes so now there's like a rival what do I do do I mean of course also go with UT that it was a little tough because we saw the big twelve head to head competition yes yes well the good news is neither of you guys are in any danger of winning a lot of games so we have to offer he the dangers that interest on the Eric I think a lot of people may not know the the total breath of what a general surgery gets the kids to do you guys train in a way that allow you to treat problems from the top of the head to the bottom of the foot but most people would probably know you guys is dealing with problems in the abdomen right correct heartburn is a fact that has been a fascinating disease just in our lifetime how it's changed right when we were young ins it was because we had less stress in our life just how that has changed the opinion of heartburn how dangerous it can be all that stuff has just been like remarkable change we learned about surgeries in my residency that were basically now considered historical operations that we would you know people get ulcers from excess acid and you have to do an operation to stop there all Sir I'm bleeding or perforating and then their their stomach contents leaks out into their belly and they're sick as a dog after that that was just years ago yeah and I was in a different era you know now that people have acid blocking medicines the whole servers are very easy to treat there's billions of dollars the pharmaceutical costs that just go to purely antacids and anti reflux medicines and histamine blockers you know if if you have had heartburn for a long time you may be stuck in an old way of thinking about heartburn you may still think that ulcers are brought on by stress stress right or you may think that asset access is what causes the ulcer as opposed to a bacteria you know that reviews read if you just stop eating spicy food or chocolate or you know how to more jalapenos you'll you know your acid reflux will go away and I just think I also think that the fact that a lot of these medicines were available over the counter now made people by past doctors when it when it comes to that condition and so they don't get like the information and so one of things I love about doing this show for many listeners out there this the most time they're going to get with the doctor to discuss an issue that they may not have sought out for yeah maybe so give me your spiel yeah I'm coming to you tell me I'm having heartburn tell me what I would be feeling or doing to let you know that it's pretty bad heartburn so I always start with asking people how long have you taking any medicine for acid reflux whether it's in an acid like terms or whether it's zantac or pepcid or you're getting over the counter Prilosec and if you are seeing a doctor that's actually prescribing that for you because you need an extra level so first things first if you're taking a medicine and it's working to control your heartburn and it's a low dose you're probably actually doing pretty good the problem comes when you start to double your dose or take it twice a day or take one kind of medicine in the morning and a different kind of medicine at night then you know you go on vacation you forget to bring it to and it's the most miserable day of your life you know you're just trying to find the pharmacies so that person has now sort of graduated beyond your typical medical management case of heartburn that's where surgery comes in and and that's why you know someone like me a general surgeon can do surgery to stop your acid reflux the goal of surgery to stop acid reflux is to number one stop it like we just said keep the acid from going up into your esophagus but two is to stop having to take medication so we call that freedom from P. P. I. proton pump inhibitors for freedom from acid blockers a lot of people I'm going to relate this to the prostate problems in men a lot of people think that this is simply a lifestyle issue I'm taking the pill so I don't have pain or I'm taking the pill so I can be better and they're forgetting that there really is an underlying medical concern when you have these conditions so maybe you could lighters scare some people out there and tell him what we scared of yes somebody has reflect we're scared of damaging our US office esophagus is just the the muscular to ban are beyond our throats that just gets food from once we swallow it passing it down into our stomach your stomach is actually what makes the acid and acid is there to digest the food that you ate but that should be leaving your stomach and going into your intestines when you have acid reflux the asset is going backwards up into your esophagus where it has no business being located this office starts to get irritated eroded damage to the lining of your esophagus you can get cancers difficulty swallowing him because he sued motility problems with swallowing it leads to risk factors for esophageal cancer and it leads to other things like where people lay down in their bed at night and the acid starts traveling upwards into their mouth and they start to choke on the asset or coughed have other problems with breathing and I'm not gonna say general surgeons are scared much one thing they're scared of is things that go wrong with the esophagus it's very hard to fix it right if you can't swallow you're a miserable person it's it's yes you want to you know we drink to stay hydrated and we eat to stay nourished and if you can't do that and yes you know for someone or talking to me yes we are because we all know that you cannot swallow let me give you my phone number and and you don't get your endoscopy and your life and your medicines and when I heard a little bit it's fall as I do not take care of the AP could describe some of the most common surgeries that you do for acid reflux the main things that I do I say until people kind of what what kind of job I have is I do hernia in refluxing obesity surgery sometimes the hernia that's the problem with reflux is actually something called a hiatal hernia which is a hernia in the diaphragm when you get hurt in the diaphragm your stomach will go backwards up into an opening in the diaphragm and that actually makes it much harder to stop acid reflux will just pills one of the first surgeries that we do is a robotic surgery which is a way to do laparoscopy very delicately and with good vision and and getting instruments which is to repair the hide a hernia bring the stomach back into the abdomen where it belongs on the chest from the chest and then close that too big of a hole in the diaphragm to be cemex sometime with with suturing number one and sometimes with mash and that's sort of part one of the procedure if you have a hiatal hernia the next thing you gotta do is re establish a higher pressure zone at the junction between your esophagus in your stomach because that's sort of like the sphincter muscle that prevents the acid from going backwards if it's low pressure I can't hold the acid back in your stomach if it's losing its pressure we gotta increases so that's when you're gonna wrap the stomach around we do a wrap of the stomach around that high pressure zone or we put the links in plant which is a magnetic device that helps to keep that area higher pressure that can open and close whenever you swallow food that is one of the coolest things that I realized I was saying is that I really wish idea my idea that that the food that's pushed through this this magnetic ring is enough to break them the magnet yeah there's a magnetic bond that's there between the beats on this ring that at rest nobody's doing anything they're bonded and so it's keeping that high pressure there keep an asset out of the esophagus it doesn't take very much pressure to push those magnets apart from each other just enough to swallow food is enough to push it out and then as soon as the food drops in the stomach they close right back some reflectors out there the rap can make it harder for people to belch or vomit so they get gas trapped in their stomach but the pressure of a belch or the pressure of vomiting is actually strong enough also to separate those beats so that's the one benefit of that procedure compared to a rap for doctor low I think the message here is that you know surgery he had to have probably the service and that reflex may not be a benign condition if you have always avoided seeing a doctor or have recently voicing a doctor you may be missing out on kind of the newest thoughts on reflects a thank you so much for joining us today how to people get a hold of you what what what is the number for your office we have a couple offices in Austin office that I'm out in north Austin is five one two four nine eight four eight six zero and we have a website capital surgeons dot com and Donna you're gonna tell people how to get a hold of us five one.

STEMinists: Katherine Johnson

"US finally reach for the stars. Let's talk about Katherine Johnson. Catherine was born in nineteen eighteen in the small town of White Sulphur Springs West Virginia. It was apparent from a very early age aged. Catherine was special. She was brilliant when it came to the humanities and she had a true gift for numbers by each ten. Catherine had started high school school in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven when she was just nineteen. Catherine graduated with highest honors from the historically Black West Virginia State College after graduating Catherine took a teaching job in Virginia which is two years later. She was handpicked for spot as one of the first three black students at the state's beats flagship school. West Virginia University Catherine enrolled in graduate school there for math but left after a year to get married and start a family family eventually should return to teaching then in nineteen fifty to one of Catherine's relatives told her about an exciting new opportunity the all black West area computing section at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics was hiring for the Langley Laboratory. The West West Area Computing Unit was a group of African American women who worked on complex manual math computations for the programs engineers it was tough and vital oh work the west computers as the women were known analyzed test data and performed math computations early space program they were key success when Catherine started working at an aca she was quickly noticed for her sharp mind and the quality of her work. Catherine Katherine still had to use separate bathrooms dining facilities from her colleagues because NACE was segregated until nineteen fifty eight when it was incorporated into the new NASA where segregation was banned there. She worked for the Space Task Group which was charged with figuring out space travel in nineteen sixty. St Catharine Co authored a paper with one of the groups engineers about calculations forgetting a spacecraft into orbit. It was the first time a woman in her group received seved authorship credit on a research report and it was just the first twenty six published papers.

VW Accused of Defrauding Investors Over Emissions

"Folks. Funding does not appear to have known that the. The criminal complaint was coming. But it didn't include a note in its annual report, which was published this week that said there was an ongoing investigation at the SEC. And so, you know, maybe folks fog new bit more than its saying today, but the news from the about the SEC investigation did come as a surprise to most people what kind of reparations does the SEC want from Volkswagen. Well, that's that's the big question is the individual fines seemed to be fairly small. But there is the provision that the SEC could come and say, well, look if you had if this information had been known, and if you were being above board with with investors when you were selling these bonds, the interest that you paid on these bonds would have been much higher. And so investors were cheated out of out of interest. And. Basically what they'll try to do is still trying to calculate some. Hypothetical profit that the that the company gained from the from selling these bonds undervalued and in order to try to determine what investors have lost and define will be based on a formula that will try to find out what that number is William let's go back Volkswagen in two thousand five wanted to launch a new push into the US auto market with a new generation of diesel engines, which was a niche market in the United States. But wasn't there a problem trying to comply with emissions rules and making clean diesel engines? Yes. And this is what the SEC is basing its claim on basically saying that in two thousand seven already VW's management. The former CEO Martin Winterkorn were involved in a number of meetings with their top engineers where they were aware that these engines were not performing properly that first of all the didn't meet. Emission standards in the United States. And so even with all the technology in. These diesel engines, they were not meeting emission standards in the United States. And Secondly, the engines appear to be running in two modes and offline and online mode or off cycle and on cycle mode. So there was it was already clear that there was some kind of. Performance during the test and performance after the test which diverged and then in two thousand fourteen a research group called the ICT with a cl- an environmental research group commissioned a West Virginia university to do as a study of group of vehicles and two of those vehicles were folks logging vehicles, and they found that the two diesel vehicles from Volkswagen had elevated diesel knocks emissions. Nitrogen oxide, kind of soot and toxic emissions diesel engines produce, and and that it was much higher than than usual, and that kind of kicked off a series of events that led to a long investigation by the EPA and a long cover up by people within VW, which is what VW ultimately pleaded guilty to write and the SEC as you write alleges that the clean diesel cheat. Was accelerated after Mr. Winterkorn became CEO in two thousand seven and you write that Mr. vendor Cornyn? Nearly a dozen former Volkswagen employees have been diverted by US attorneys. There are two former executives who've pleaded guilty, and they're in jail in the US, and apparently most of the people indicted or German citizens, and we can extradite them here. Right.

Dunkumentary: the first dunk in women's college history

"Of perhaps the first women's dunk in college basketball history. It is also a bit of a mystery caper as well, I'll say that there is lots of controversy and lots we don't know about who the first woman to dunk is certainly Cheryl Miller is in the conversation. There is reporting that she did. So in high school. Cool. But this is about a college dunk about someone far less famous than Cheryl Miller and about something that was caught and lost on tape. Kate feagin, one of our favorite reporters tells the story. And again, if you like this one, you can check out the whole donkey memory series at ESPN dot com slash documentaries. Let's get to Kate story. This one is called missing milestone. It was two thousand nine in a sports reporter named read Albert Godley was researching a story for the Wall Street Journal. This is read talking to sportscenter that year, and the theme was that women's college basketball going above the Ren. And of course, he can write that without, you know, Google searching the first woman to slam dunk. He learned that the first dunk can happen twenty-five years earlier. I notice, you know, researching it in fact checking that there just wasn't that much information about it. And then it was sort of shaky and you'd read, you know, one story, and it would have won facts. And then a contradicting factor and other story read decided to find out what he could from someone who'd actually seem the dunk and I ended up talking to kitty blakemore kitty blakemore former coach at West Virginia university. It was a player on kitty squad who threw down that first dunk in a game. And I kind of asked her, you know, kiddie lake WI fi. Is it so shaky like aren't there no photos of this thing? And she said, well, there was this video. And I said great where where's that? Can. We get a hold of inch said, well, I tried to get the tape. And that's a whole nother story. Do you want to hear that? Kagin and MRs documentaries of podcast miniseries from PS PIN at celebrates the dunk in all its glory. This episode is the story of an early milestone in women's basketball in how it was lost to history. We'll get back to read Alber Gotti, the reporter in a few minutes. But our story of the first in the missing tape actually starts in nineteen Eighty-three. Coach blakemore was building her women's basketball team, the mountaineers at West Virginia university, a friend tipped her off to a tall teenager from Ohio who she might want to recruit. Her name, georgeanne wells. I kind of was like course to playing basketball because my height and being probably at in fifth grade six feet, maybe that was pretty tall by senior year of high school georgeanne was six foot six and still growing. In fact, she was about a head taller than most of the other players on the court and West Virginia wanted a really tall player in the back of coach blakemore is mine was the idea that maybe her little team could make history they can have the first female player to ever dunk blakemore successfully recruited georgeanne, she'd never dunked in high school the blakemore new the coaching staff could train her slam dunk, slam dunk slam done after a while. I mean, you're slammed up you're not used to doing that. I it can wear and tear almost like blisters on your hands with all this hard work and practice that I was doing better happen soon. Practice was no problem. But games were different. Every time. She tried to dunk in the game. They would grab hold over shorts or. Hold of her. So she couldn't dunk. Let's the back for minute and understand why at this point in women's basketball. No one had ever dunked. First of all the WNBA didn't exist yet and wouldn't for almost another fifteen years, but even college ball which had been around for a while. It was still developing. In fact, this was a critical moment because title nine had passed about a decade earlier so title nine states that any educational institution that receives federal funding is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of sex. This is Cheryl cookie in associate professor of American studies at Purdue in practice the new title nine law requires public schools have proportional funding athletics. So for example, if you've sixty percent girls in your school girls, receive sixty percent of funding as a result girl started playing more sports after the law passed when you have more girls more women playing sport and more access. There's an increased talent pool and the level of of competition is raised as a result. I think it also. So shifted the cultural expectations around what girls and women were capable of. Jan was part of that very first generation of girls witting creased access to playing sports. It was a moment. When women's basketball was developing and growing away at hadn't previously enjoyed gen she played her own small part and pushing the game forward. In her sophomore year with the D one mountaineers her squad traveled Elkins West Virginia there they played the university of Charleston golden eagles a detour team.
