A highlight from A MAN'S GIFT
"Hi everyone good morning you're welcome to the refinance on his podcast once again and I'm your host the beneath the bassin I trust that the Lord is he then has been so gracious to you all right without wasting most of your time I I just wanted to share a bit of what the Lord is laying in my heart this morning with you and I'm trying to bring a corrective doctrine and let's bring a balance to this very subject because it has been it has been trending for a while and I just want us to have a proper understanding what scriptures really talked about our central text will be taken from Proverbs chapter 18 from verse 16 and it is actually talking about the wisdom in getting along with others okay so I got to understand that to actually relate properly with other people that there is a certain kind of wisdom that the Lord has the Lord expect of us yes there's something that the Lord expect of us yes there is an attitude there's a lifestyle it expects us to live so I I trust that the Lord will help us this morning in the name of Jesus so Proverbs chapter 18 from verse 16 I'm gonna read it in different translations and how the myths of God explain it I mean bit by bit so the Bible says in King James Version a man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men all right the good news Bible says that do not do you want to meet an important person is it take a gift and it will be easy that's a good news translation so let's go to the passion translation the person translation says would you like to meet a very important person is it take a generous gift it would do wonders to gain entrance into his presence you see this very scripture is bringing so much attention to what has been trending so they must gift make it room for him so a lot of people used to think it is what they call it now it is relating to someone's inherent talent someone's order calling now like let's say gifting oh I was born with a gift but the scriptures in Hebrew chapter 18 is practically talking about your relationship with other people and in verse 16 the Bible says if you want to get access you want to meet an important person if you want to be faithful by an important person now we're not talking about bribery as in Proverbs chapter 17 essentially Proverbs chapter 17 was talking about bribery no it's not bribery but this is this gift is giving you access now this talks about access to to important personalities amen so the Bible says if you want to meet an important person get a generous gift and it's going to do wonders I think that's a passion translation you're going to do a lot of wonders so I also carefully look at this in some other perspectives so the Proverbs is a simple recognition of factual generosity and politeness opens many many doors so you can just go to meet an important person for example the let me get let me get let me get that scripture straight but I want to really place so much emphasis I mean so much so much emphasis on on this very subject because I know that there has been a whole lot of misappropriation miss everything has been I mean everything has been taken in the wrong direction so Deuteronomy chapter chapter come chapter 16 verse 16 the Bible says three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose in the feast of unleavened bread and in the feast of weeks and in the feast of tabernacles and they shall not appear before the Lord empty amen so this is not talking about your talent not talk about your gift this is more of your reverence your honor to a person that you you revere highly this is having to talk about your attitude your your the level at which you are not a person that this important person you're going to me so it must make it so all that can be very foolish and they go to meet an important person empty handed okay but you came with a gift you have so much access okay you have so much attention because you you have whole not this person coming to it you did not come to meet this person empty handed you came with something so a gift is more is more general than bread so here the proverb simply says that a gift can expedite matters but says nothing about bribing judges no so in Genesis chapter 43 verse 11 Jacob knew well and therefore paid his sons to take a present for the governor of the land presented a governor of the land though it were though it were both of every good thing a little so saw in first so was very very I mean King Saul was very very attentive to this very fact so his father's ass got missing and the guy said is there no man of God and the servant of which he was talking with said there is one there's one we know there's one we know and then when he went to go and see the man of God to inquire about is the loss as he did not go empty okay so it can it can it can also be an innocent courtesy of very early con that's a gift to reconcile that like a present Minha sent to the captain that was in first how much as a 20 generous at the 43 verse 11 that's King that's also please you have to take note of this very passage so that say that um you can really understand where I'm coming from and what I'm actually talking about so a lot of people misuse this very subject I mean they talk about their giftings and how talented you are and you see a lot of people start to charge before they can be a blessing to God's people they collect so much money some will be asking you how much is your honorarium budget because they believe that that the scriptures here is talking about what they have inside of them what the Lord gave to them is it freely I have given and I mean freely I've received and then free you have to give so they don't you know that very very scripture they go ahead you go ahead to scatter the the context of scripture just to suit their personal lost I think I made this I made something about this podcast episode happy some some some weeks ago about how people will go about decontextualizing the scripture just to suit their personal lost so a minister who is drawn after Mammon or who is was so much lost for money will now be selling what God gave to him freely and that he was supposed to to give out freely because God gave it to him freely so a man of God will start mechanizing the gift the giftings of God and then using the scripture to to back it up please I beg in the name of God we need to go back to our Bible studies we need to we need to check yes I know you spent so much I know you spent a whole lot to improve on yourself yes second Timothy chapter 2 I think from verse 15 apostle Paul was speaking to Timothy is a study to show yourself approved a workman and it's not patient so the Lord invested in you of course you will need to you will need to work that out you need to make him know that truly you're not wasting that which he bestowed in you amen you need to prove that okay I'm not saying that ministers of the gospel the mind of God should not be cornered of course when they are the concept I know you are still asking me to give you a million dollars you are outside the kingdom of God I'm telling you the truth now I expect to you in all honesty I tell you nothing I am NOT talking because I'm perfect I'm into the full image but I am bringing by the message how do you say part of the money to account before you come now we take the context or the lifestyle of the world to God's Kingdom yes the Lord is supposed to the Lord is supposed to sincerely yes but this is not the root the Bible says he blessed the works of your hands yes now now believe me the fact that you're doing ministry does not mean that you should not walk amen now the fact that you are you a minister of the gospel doesn't mean that you should be I don't know except and unless the Lord sends you I said oh go and do justice and if the Lord asks you to I mean give yourself totally to this cause which he has chosen you for I'm sure he's going to make provision not you make challenging and looking for ways to provide for yourself no how about some sweet little Lord is my shepherd I shall not want if you really know the God in which you are serving you should understand it now to Elijah the Bible says that the Lord commanded arabian arriving to what to feed him now I want you to understand that the Lord cannot really I mean the Lord truly sent you on an errand and then he leaves you empty it's impossible I mean it is extremely impossible like you I mean deconstructorization You are a spiritual, you should, you should, you should talk of midterm dancing.
Fresh update on "workman" discussed on Dear Chiefs Podcast
"Engine five dispatch, pockets of fire all around. Dear Chief, much has happened since we last spoke. Welcome to Dear Chief podcast, where your hosts and their guests share the four one one of being married to the people who respond to nine one ones. Take a peek into fire family life and get unabashed advice on how to prevent forest fires in your marriage. Now here's your host two seasoned firewives, Audra and Chelsea. A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X-ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co-teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs down and we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had, but obviously we were so young that we just kind of didn't really think that it was even a possibility. And the fact that his general practitioner kept pushing when they could have said, you know, we'll just monitor it. We'll see what happens. And I think that it's so important to just say, like, if you make sure you have your, your physicals done, you get everything checked out, you don't leave anything, any stone unturned. And since that happened, I had the opportunity of meeting with battalion chief, John Forrester at the really fire department. And they just do so many great things now with, they have a frontline mobile that they do, and it's extensive, extensive, not just cancer screenings, but overall health screenings. You know, he says he really focuses on overall wellness, mental health and cardio function and what he's been able to do since he's been able to kind of say like, Hey, this is a reality. This happened. We did have a firefighter, a young firefighter who did have cancer online. It's kind of been able to give him the push and the motivation to keep it going, to keep saying like, Hey, we need funding for this. We need, we need all of this testing and advocate for that. And it was just so amazing. I was so thankful to meet with him and to, to hear how much he's, he's in our corner and he's, he's continuing to push and our department is continuing to prioritize health and screening and everything. So let's back up for a second. When the crews kind of came around and were saying like, there's no way you have cancer. What was their reaction when they found out that your husband did have cancer? Disbelief. They just, that was something that happened. Maybe when you're, when you're older, you know, we all, we all kind of met up together. And what's crazy is we have kind of a core group of friends that all started at like a volunteer department and they are now, we have, you know, put our fire authority, we have Denver, we have all these different surrounding fire departments. And we have these core group of friends who started off at this little department who we kind of have as our core people. And they were all like, this is not real. It's not real. It's not. I think that like, they almost had to show up to, to believe it, to actually think that that that could be a possibility. And it was just like, if you can see the look on their face, but it just shattered like the, like, it can't happen to me. It can't happen to somebody I love, somebody that I know, somebody that I work with. Did it prompt them to take their health a little bit more seriously? Was there more, you know, proactive kind of screening and things like that for them? Yeah. And I think that because we have our core group of friends who, you know, they, they're at different departments, bigger departments, Denver fire, or like Peter fire, all these different surrounding departments who all kind of operate differently. And I didn't really is doing some amazing things. Like I wish that our department did more extensive screening instead of just like our yearly physical and just meeting with a doctor. And I think that that kind of, I was like, it's not standard practice. And I kind of was like, Oh, this is kind of, it's different. And to hear them kind of say like, no, I've brought it up. And I've said, Hey, like, this would be amazing if we could, we could have this. And I think it's kind of motivated them to take their health more seriously. And not only that, but like to sort of advocate for themselves too. Yeah. So lymphoma is a very common cancer in the fire service, right? I did a little deep dive, maybe not super deep dive, but I definitely looked at some of the statistics for firefighters specifically. It's crazy. If you ever research it, which I'm sure you probably did at this point, the female firefighters, I did not know how like a 600% increased risk of breast cancer. That's wild. Wow. And then firefighters have obviously a significant increased risk of cancer as they progress throughout their career. So at the 20 year mark, gets a little more at the 30 year mark, it gets a little more. So cancer is not uncommon in the fire service at all. But you said that the department specifically would never say for certain that it was because of his exposures to chemicals on the job or their gear containing the PFOAS. So was he eligible for any kind of benefit or anything from job related cancer? It's not covered under like a workman's comp type of thing. Colorado has something called the Colorado Cancer Trust. So it's departments that elect to put money into an account that say like, there's an eligibility criteria. He had been a firefighter at that point in 2019 for 10 years. So he was eligible to say like, yes, he's had enough exposure to have been at risk to have this type of cancer that is known or more common for firefighters. So lymphoma was on there. I know testicular cancer is a big one too for men. I didn't know breast cancer for women, but there is an eligibility criteria. They don't come out and say that this is work related. And the department and the everybody who works for Greeley Fire was amazing. They all covered his shifts. So he was able to go through treatment. He had to step offline for a while. And then when the pandemic hit, he kind of was forced to sit at a desk for a little bit just because his immunity was still really low. But I don't even think that there was something written out that like, what happens if a firefighter has cancer? It was just kind of like the guys, everybody at the department banding together and being like, I got your shift. I got your next shift. And they got it all figured out for us. But there was never like a, like, this is work related is workman's comp. It's a, it's a work related issue. It was kind of a separate, you know, like having the cancer trust and then having the Terry Farrell fund reach out to, knowing that it could be a job related cancer. So Colorado is not a presumptive cancer state then. Yeah, that's what it sounds like. And it's crazy to me that in 2023, after all of these studies that there are States that don't have that presumptive cancer legislation. It blows my mind. No. So they also got new gear. Is that right? Yes. My husband got one of the first new sets of bunker gear and I know that they were making sure that it gets replaced and everything, but, but yeah, he, he currently has gear that's PFOA free. And in case you didn't know, new wives or new spouses, turnouts expire. I don't know if we've, we might've talked about this with Diane Chelsea. We probably hit on this a few times, but turnouts expire. So I think it's 10 years. If I recall, they should be changed out every 10 years at minimum. So if your departments are not changing out your turnouts every 10 years and you don't have a spare, you have a problem. There's a problem. Um, because the overexposure to anything in the same turnouts is insane and they do have an expiration date. So any department who is not giving you no turnouts at least every 10 years and giving you a second set, you should be talking to somebody in the higher ups because it's the least you can do to prevent it. The least you can do. So after all of this, your husband is cancer free now, right? Yes. Yeah. He's, he was monitored. He's had numerous PET scans after that. He still has, it never actually showed up in his blood. So, I mean, I'm telling you, if you think that going into your doctor and just having your physical and just having your blood work done is enough, it's not. Anything looks off, anything feels off. He actually said that one of the symptoms that he didn't realize was a symptom was referred back pain because he has like really bad back pain. Um, at that point it was like he was going to the chiropractor like every week. And so it was, it was that the flu like symptoms. And, you know, at that point he was stage two and he had only had the referred back pain, but he didn't have, it's still, and never at any point in treatment after treatment before treatment showed up in his blood. So for me, that's scary to think that you could go into a physical and walk out and think that you're fine, you know, and it's, you know, making sure that you have a general practitioner that you trust, that knows what you do, knows what you're exposed to. I didn't know until I listened to the podcast with Dai too and hearing that, you know, I've told my husband, I was like, we need to figure out something with you. Cause he travels sometimes. And I'm like with you having your gear in the car, knowing that we have strollers back there and clothes back there or anything. And it's just crazy to me. And it's, it's kind of like making sure that you, you, your family and others are just, you know, advocating, advocating for anything. It doesn't feel right. Doesn't look right. I mean, there's, they're still monitoring his blood work. It doesn't matter. It doesn't show up, but yeah, he's, he's cancer free. He's been cancer free. Thank God. So let's flip it to a little bit of positivity for a second. So after that, you went to a fertility specialist and you were able to conceive. So this is, there is hope, right? What did the fertility specialists kind of do or walk us through that? Maybe because I don't, I don't know anything about fertility specialists. So if you can share with us, that would be awesome. Yes. I got into whoever could answer. I had like four, he wanted us to get in right away. So I, I called my OB, I called a local fertility specialist in our Denver area and they had us come in and they recommended that we talk to a sperm bank. We are able to at least preserve some sperm in case, you know, when he started treatment, he would not be able to naturally conceive. And we did. And it's pretty tricky. I recommend that as soon as you have that diagnosis, that if you haven't had children, if you still want to have children, you contact somebody right away, look into sperm banks right away before, you know, if you're a woman and that happens, that you look into egg retrieval, right? It's just, it's a lengthy process. Even for sperm, we had to make sure it was like a certain amount of days. They recommended that we did that. We had a one that we could just send in that was based out of Boston, I think. And we met with the fertility specialists afterwards. They kind of explained that, you know, firefighters, hockey players, they kind of listed out cancer patients and a lot, a lot of these people who could potentially have difficulties having children. And she asked what our treatment plan was. She went through all of that and gave us just kind of some tips of like, Hey, while he's going through that, why don't you get all of your blood work done, have everything looked at. So while he was going through treatment, I was having ultrasounds done, having very extensive blood work done, making sure that when he was done, we, and we were ready. I, I wasn't deficient in any vitamins or anything like that. And thankfully it was just, I was just like deficient in like vitamin D or something. It was very easy to go in and fix that and be ready. But I think my husband was 30. I was 27 and they told us that the, the egg retrieval process, all of the different supports that we could have, they did all of the scanning of like all my quality of eggs and everything gave us some information and everything. But so we had a waiting period after he was done with chemo and radiation, we had to wait a year from his last day. That year was really hard, but thankfully we started trying on our own. And after about a year, we got pregnant naturally, even though we had like that sperm banked and everything and had all of my records done ready in case, you know, we needed to do IUI or IVF, we were prepared, but yeah, we were, we were able to thankfully have our son naturally and this pregnancy naturally as well. So it was amazing. It was a miracle. I am so thankful for that. Oh boy. That's a lot. So thank God you had an amazing doctor because I think so much of this would go unnoticed just from a regular physician, not to bang on physicians, but I think just because they're all very overworked. So if they don't know what to look for and they don't know what your job is, I think they're just going to do the bare minimum. So kudos to him. And if you don't have a great doctor, then you have to advocate for yourself. And well, I don't have any more questions. I think it's hot seat time. What do you think Chelsea? I think so. Okay. First question. Are you a book reader? I do audio books cause I'm always doing something and I'm listening to my books on my headphones. Great. So what, what are you listening to right now? Oh, I'm, I'm excited about that. I'm, I'm listening to the, the Britney Spears book right now, The Woman in Me. Anytime I like have some time in the car by myself, I'm traveling or doing something. I'm listening to that book or at the same time, I'm listening to like Brene Brown, Anything. I haven't personally read it yet, but it's on my, my TBR. I've been really slacking in the reading department this year. I read 56 books last year and this year I'm like, I'm not reading anything. So I've read like two books in 2023. I'm telling you the book is so easy. You'll get through it in like a day. It's just fascinating. Okay. Switching to something more delicious. What's your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? Ooh, I, you know, might be kind of gross. I, I'm a fan of like the cranberries in a can. I'm a cranberries in a can girl. I love having that with like some good garlic mashed potatoes and gravy. Like that's my jam right there. What do you prefer? Pumpkin spice latte or peppermint mocha? Oh, I have to go pumpkin spice. And I, if I'm at Starbucks, I'm going to get the pumpkin spice chai. That's where it's at right there. I noticed you drinking tea this morning. So I figured you're going to say the pumpkin spice chai cause it's like the best thing on the freaking menu. What would you say to your husband's chief if you had the chance? I would say they're doing a really good job right now with talking about mental health and being very open with everybody and trying to, to really kind of open up and say like, Hey, where, where are we? Where do, where do we need to work on? What do we need to do? And I think having kind of that open door, those conversations with their firefighters and continuing to kind of have those talks about mental health and, and just my husband's kind of moved around in shifts a lot. And I know it's been, it's been a little hard on him sometimes to kind of switch up crews. And I know that they've had a lot of movement. They have a lot of people recently leave just because they're older and they're retiring and stuff like that. So there's been movement and I would just love to see them kind of stick with the crew for a while and just, you know, continuing doing all the great work that they're doing, but maybe even selfishly, just being able to kind of, to have a little crew again, that little crew family again for a little bit longer. Okay. What would you tell your younger self when your firefighter first started his career? Oh man, he was still volunteer when we met because we met in 2013 and he had like, he had just gotten his first little part-time job. He was so excited. And I, I didn't really know what to expect, but I would probably say it's going to be okay. You marry somebody and you, you love somebody and you stay with somebody because, because of who they are as humans. And I think sometimes, not sometimes, a lot of the times the job really makes it hard to, to remember that, that human just because there's so many moving parts all the time. You know, he just got off working seven days straight because he was working a 72, jumped into a class, worked a class, like did a class all week in between working. And it was just, he got home and I was like, who are you? Like, I haven't seen you. And I think I would tell myself to just give yourself grace and give him grace and just remember why you love spending time with this person and why you love this person. Yep. I don't think there's much more to say other than that. I mean, that pretty much sums it up. Pretty much, pretty much. Okay, Brittany, thank you for telling us your story today. How can people get in touch with you if want to hear more, have questions or? Yeah, I, you can definitely send me a message on Instagram or send me an email if you have any, have any questions, want to talk to somebody. I felt strange coming on because I'm like, I'm, I'm, I'm a wife. Like I, I don't really, I'm not, you have these amazing people that come on that have these, you know, that do these amazing things and I, if I could help one person or if you're, you're struggling and you don't know what your next step is, you're, you know, or anything, you absolutely feel free to send me a message on Instagram, Facebook. Just need to chat. Absolutely. Yeah. We have amazing people on, but really the wives and the spouses are our favorites because you're like us. You're very relatable. So that was the whole point of us starting the podcast. It's like, we want to talk to people who understand how we feel and we want to reciprocate. So we will share your, what is your Instagram handle? I think it's, it's, um, it's Brittany Rose with periods in between all that. I know it's super annoying that there's periods between all of them, but like I have a very common name, so it's just like trying to have a handle with the name Brittany is just very difficult. So it's Brittany Rose with periods. B.R.I.T.N.E.1. Yeah. Yeah. Sorry. Not, we're not making it complicated at all. No, it's fine. Yeah. It'll be in the show notes. Yeah.

The president held the first meeting with his supply chain resilience council saying issues with supply chains helped lead to high inflation. These savings matter so many families, especially at this time of the year. And it's no there no accident when it comes down to supply change. Did you ever think we'd be talking this much about supply chains? No, but I'm serious. It's critical. Everybody's been getting to figure it out. The average person knows what we're talking. We talk about supply chains. Price increases have eased, but inflation remains a problem for the president's approval before next year's election. The slowdown has not boosted public feelings about the economy. We know the prices are still too high for too many things, that times are still tough for too many families, but we made progress, but we have more work to do. And do companies have that not lowered prices. Any corporation that's not brought their prices back down, even as inflation's come down, even if supply chains have been rebuilt, it's time to stop gouging, giving the American consumer a break.

The Inspiring Story of Margaret E. Knight
"So margaret louise night. She was a prolific american inventor of machines and mechanisms for a variety of industrial everyday purposes. Margaret was nicknamed maddie mit. She lived with her widowed mother and older brothers. Charlie and jim in a little house in york maine. she was born in eighteen. Thirty eight by the way so after her father passed away mattie had inherited his toolbox and she liked to think of things that could be made with these tools and she drew them in a little notebook that she labeled my inventions. Mattie demonstrated knack for tools and mentioned from an early age making toys kites sleds and household items in as little girl. She preferred to play with woodworking tools. Instead of dolls saying that quote the only thing she wanted whereas a jack knife gimblett and pieces of wood. She knew she wanted good for her so when she was eleven. Maddie's finley moved to manchester new hampshire to work in the textile mills there and so matty was going to continue going to school only going so far as a complete her elementary school education and she got to know the head engineer there while wandering around the grounds after school waiting for her family to be done with their like fourteen to eighteen hour shifts. Sure textile mills. Yeah including like her twelve year old brother and fourteen so at age twelve. She started working the mill herself and aloom ow function and injured a worker So it turns out that one of the leading causes of serious injuries at the mill that she had observed was the propensity of the steel-tipped flying shuttles so those were manipulated by workers to unite the left in the warp threads in their weaves. I'm so these shuttles would come free of their looms and they would like shoot off the machines high-velocity even at like the slightest employee error. So like there were people dying from this. There are people like you know basically like you're getting almost shot. Yeah basically tipped metal thing like flying off a machine you know so it was really dangerous and so matty what she did. She created a guard. That would stop the shuttle from coming off of the machine if it malfunctioned. So like the exact details of this device have kind of been lost to history but mentions of it came out throughout published stories of her work and her Mentions articles that will get into so again because this was the mid nineteenth century. And why would anybody document what they actually did anyway. So workman who installed these types of guards all the looms and all the males in manchester. So this sounds like a big deal. She clearly didn't make any money for sure. You know maybe save some lives so after she turned eighteen. Mattie left manchester for better opportunities She worked in several different factories on new england along with other short-term technical jobs too so that she could keep

The MLB, the Atlantic League and Moving the Mound Experiment
"I wrote about moving back in mid march and that was before it was officially announced that the atlantic could be doing that this year. I think that announcement came. I don't know maybe th in the weeks or months after that article came out and this was something that they had talked about doing in twenty nineteen that they were going to implement a two foot move in the mound and the atlantic league at midseason. And that didn't end up happening in the sense that i got when i was working on my piece earlier. This year is that basically. They were worried about players. You know having workman's comp concerns or or having injuries occur and basically that players would not be happy with this change and that there would be a lot of objections and so they didn't end up doing it that year and then they did this year but only half of the distance just a one foot move and even so hit did not go over well so tell us a little bit about what you learned about how players responded to this both when it was announced if they were even aware of it at that time and since it went into effect earlier this month. Yes so it's more than a handful of players. Mostly pitchers are a feel for what it's like to be in this league. Vins experimenting in a way. That in run countermeasure you. Your career aspirations your individual performance and also your health because there's a lot of sixty one foot now and we don't know about regarded to where it goes to your body and your arm health whatnot.

All the pictures basically agree that had been able to adjust and it wasn't a big deal anymore. Now you know. They did mention like similar.

We know that a lot of work places can't find enough employees right now, for a variety of reasons among the employers, childcare providers like daycare centers. Here's Michelle Jokisch polo of member station W KR in Lansing, Michigan. During the pandemic. Tens of thousands of childcare centers across the country were forced to find new ways to work. They had to embrace physical distancing and masking requirements while finding enough workers to keep their doors open. Many could not others reduced hours and availability. Elizabeth Tobia runs Easy three a day care company operating in downtown Lansing for nearly 40 years before the pandemic, Tobia was managing to locations and the care of nearly 200 Children. Today. The second location has closed. An enrollment at EC three has been cut in half. Despite increasing demands for childcare, Tobias says she's struggling to find new staff. We've had to put a freeze on enrolling Children until we can find skilled people who want to work in this field. So now we're operating at a level that still isn't break even for us financially, but we can't find people to apply for jobs, the challenges of providing affordable childcare. Have increased substantially for daycare providers since the pandemic began, according to data from the Center for American Progress Costs per child have gone up to an average of 47%. In part because daycare programs had to reduce capacity sanitize species an increase worker pay. Simon Workman is a national expert on child care finance because families can't afford that. The providers are either cutting staff or they are going into the red right. They are taking on personal debts they are taking on business sent. They are not replacing people when they leave, Workman says the pandemic highlighted how severely underpaid childcare providers have been for decades. Broke Aaron out. His experience bears that out during the pandemic. She left her job at a daycare center because she didn't feel like it was worth exposing herself to Covid 19. For the low wages she was earning. It's really frustrating to be in this field and to dedicate so much time and energy to essentially raising Children to be paid poverty wages, Simon Workman says once assistance from the federal government stops He expects many more childcare centers to close with rising costs. There may not be enough parents who can afford upwards of $20,000 per year. In Michigan. A bipartisan deal was reached to use $1.4 billion of federal money to expand affordable childcare options for parents and provide additional money to childcare workers. But Elizabeth Tobia says it's just a temporary fix. So when we begin to realize that.

This is frankly an extraordinary piece of documentary making take to tell a story and in interplay between words and photographs there that powerful enough as pieces on their own but as you say together they can be far more than the sum of their parts but before we talk about that particular story. I want to start going to rewind good few years prior go back to nineteen seventy four. When you went to cover a coal miners strike in kentucky because that info audio's well tell me about it. Oh so long. It's a long story but it involves two parts. One part is the in seventy two ignite across the united states. And its some point on the way back. I found myself outside on the road running near cabin creek west virginia and as i sat there overrode waiting for arrival you could see the myers going all in their cards completely black because at that point the minds didn't really provide showers or cleaned if he saw and i thought to myself. I have to come back here primarily. Because i come out of labor fam- so two years later i had been sitting on a small sum of money. Workmen's compensation salman and i wanted. I liked to have thought of myself as a photographer. Hungrily really wasn't and i'm looking around for something to do and i talked to a a lawyer. The national lawyers guild about Some work i had done a two day trip by done take photos of former so he was in his office. He said i have to take this call. Go outside so. I wait outside and it was. It was a paper. Said summer programs for law interns in west virginia with the black one. So fish Which was sort of like an ngos. Navid advocates could black black lung association. Yeah so the black lines cold layers get slip. They get from reading too much coal dust. It's sort of like emphysema or silicosis for asbestosis round one which is protect

"Com. My email is incontinent. Ed burdon dot com on. I talk with anybody i promise. Righty well matt. Thanks for being on the show. Rafi thank you so much. I appreciate it. Congrats for everything well. I hope you enjoyed that interview with matt. From bardo von health innovations. i'd like having conversations with people that just think differently about the way things have been in. What the possibilities are. And i love it. Von given just the way that they tracked atta. They accumulated data and they monitor it. How they're able to then leverage that data to help improve outcomes not just at one facility one clinician but across their entire system. I think it's as we move forward. You know we've had some folks on here talking about digital health and telehealth and integrating technology into health. Care a big part of that to me. Anyways the free flow of information and data and what we know as clinicians whereas organizational leaders. If we know something works over here why can't we translate that over there. And if you wanted to. I had a great discussion. I think it was episode six with dan tournament talking about knowledge translation in general which is an interesting topic but anyway i love love with her doing so. Check them out if you're interested in that kind of stuff if you're interested in seeing what they're doing the workman's comp space other than that guys if you like what we're doing head on over to.

"I mean i. I think under the again i can just say the old model. The patient always got lost. Everybody got a most of the time. The patient lost all the time because it was always about the claim how is about how many cpt units how many visits gross charge net charge as nothing about the patient in so because of this clinical documentation because we are able now see thousands of providers on a daily basis in start to identify anomalies at evil search. Lean in. I mean the reality of it. Is you know there are some seven good and are trying and so it's just the fact that they're they're rare but they happen and so the ability for us to go past that to see what is not being documented in to reach out to that provider in guide him or her to do something meaningful for that patient or else. We control the referral right. The next role doesn't go to that provider right. I mean because they're not going to do a good job. It shouldn't get more referrals if they are going to. Jobs should be paid fairly for that. And so i think our system lends itself because we are so provider. Focused accepts. Now the backside is we are asking providers. Do something pretty unnatural. Which is the document in a different documentation system for that patient though. It's incumbent upon us and we are investing heavily. We're gonna we're gonna go with a new generation called denotes to here in the coming months. We also know that on journey. We have to continue to perfect. Our documentation system to be as workflow seamless and in do unencumbered our provider partners with not knowing how to navigate system documenting as much as possible and allow them to put their hands on their patients to treat them and heal them and the documentation to be more and more every day You know seamless with their normal operation and so it is. It's a it's a journey we're on. We're not perfect at it today but.

"I don't want an environment that incentivizes the provider to create a really big bill give manipulated discount and then give me bad treatment. Because they're upset about how little. I'm getting there getting paid for every visit. That's not a. That's not an outcome. That values validates anybody. And i think I think it's going the way of the dinosaur. I think it will become. That model will become extinct. Which is basically the third party payers putting the squeeze on everybody right. 'cause they wanted to shell out as much. I think it's just an again. It's it's all this looking at it not over the course of the cpt unit or the visit looking at it over the course of the claim when you change that perspective fundamentally changes what incentives. Everybody's asked to apply to. I think because we have this whole view and be as we can. Deploy a as easily in la. Today's we can't iowa makes it really powerful. And i think makes it in the fact that not only learn about the patients were learning from our provider partners. We're learning from rtp parts. We're learning from our employer partners. Were applying all that learning evolving. The system every day makes us dangerous and a really good way. Yeah so then talk to me a little bit about incentives then so normal fee for service. Physical therapy clinic comes in your charging a cpt code for nieve al. Maybe some treatment. And that's kind of you're. You're looking at patients almost as per visit basis right like what is worth this many units to me this that and the other. So how does how does this type of solution change or alter the incentive structure for know say a clinician. That's just now entering this space like they sign up with guard on house has the incentive different so the because quality actually matters because in the workers compensation segment the employer has at least total control or significant influence in where the referral goes. They may advocate that responsibility with third party. But if they so choose to bring it back. The employer unquestionably has significant influence where the referral goes when you look at a total claim that employer is equally if not more exposed to the quality of care from the actual cost by billion dollar marketplace. Half the.

"Yeah exactly. What a platform supposed to be. Yeah so dan do you. I know that on your website on barnum on clinical consultants available. And i guess that's one of the mechanisms by which some of that learning is transferred. Right i mean you think about you. Any invisible everybody that got us to their six clinics data there. Yeah we've got access to thirteen thousand. So we are able now to identify at evaluation with a pretty significant statistical relevance based off of how the clinicians document the realities of that patient. That patient looks like they fit the model to potentially become an outlier so before we go down a bad path. Let's start adding resources to them right now. To make sure we keep them on track of healing in going back to their their life in the goals in a reasonable way and so it's it's awesome because that platform is so organic and allows us the ability to now become predictive and then apply those predictive principles to a clinician. We're working with a first time because we've learned you know that's why you know. Companies always talk. Moat are moat gets bigger every day. Because we're learning with thousands of visits today and we're going to better tomorrow because of it and that's cool awesome and then what other mechanisms and do you have as it is it directly to the provider where you're offering some of this learning or is this more kind of administrative level where you're getting this data. You're seeing it as you kinda dash boarding it and then you're kind of using that to direct care or is there any like one on one like hey rafi he's gonna get starting to stink with carpal tunnel injuries or whatever. Let's give them some help. Yes it's all of that so individual down to the clinician. So what's important to in this whole concept about historical networks anonymous in commodities ing The provider we know down to the provider name clinic. The provide like joe smith. We know how. Joe does with certain patients and so we know we because we have his data and we also have an ability to connect with him and intervene optimize. Whenever possible now we will also been sit with joe's regional director clinic owner and look at their whole corporate data. Then we will look bad payers like. Here's how you know it's going in this region. Here's how joe smith doing for these clinics. It is interventional. The only thing that's important though is it also incorporates. Being able to look at the things that are not in the clinicians control that may impact outcomes. We're able to look at adjuster. Adjuster sits on a referral for two weeks before he or she then. Transfers it into your clinic. The fact that there's going to be a delay returned to work is real. It's expected but it's not your fault and so and again we're not trying to cast blame on anybody but we're trying to find real data that allows us to continue to get smarter every day. About what best in class treatment is really create regional distributed centers of excellence in every zip code that people can depend upon. Yeah so. I mean that that in and itself is pretty interesting we were talking about delays in lags in referrals to clinical outcomes. And that sorta thing just like when you get that granular. You're really creating something super super powerful. I think so and again. I mean yes. It is powerful but the beauty of a double sided network like we are is one thing that get employers interested in data but having providers in patients join this kind of about. Yeah we want. I wanna get injured on the job. I want access to super high quality healthcare. I wanted efficiently. I wanted effectively. I want somebody with the line goals. And i wanna i wanna i wanna environment that incentivize all parties to do that..
"It's time for another installment of on it. Store live here on scuba shack radio. And this time we're going back to season one episode two titled flooded mine flooded mine the premiered on january eleventh nineteen fifty eight. The show opens up with mike scuba diving. And there's a woman who is free diving with them. They're searching for a guitarfish from marineland of the pacific and that's when they encounter a c line who might calls a natural clown. He then says that he will be faced with a very different situation. Fifteen hundred miles inland where he's been called to investigate a mine. Explosion that has flooded the tunnels in the next scene. Mike is at the mine and he's talking to the head of the mind. Mr graham mr graham explains that the explosion killed thirty miners and he needs mike to determine the extent of the flooding. Mike tells mr graham that he can go thousand yards into the tunnel with his cylinder. Graham asks him what it's going to cost. Mike says we'll talk about that later. Now mr graham calls in bill henderson. Who's going to help mike. Bill tells graham that he sorry about his boy who was killed in an explosion. The scene shifts to mike being lowered into the mine in his full scuba gear with miner's helmet on he says he's been all seven seas on six continents but has never been in a mind before and never wants to be in want again as bill and mike or making their way through the mine. Bill tells mike not to touch anything. It's a tight squeeze and mike accidentally kicks a beam. That causes a bit of a cave-in. Well they finally make it to the water mike. Mike looks at his watch. And it says three twenty and he tells bill that he has forty minutes of air. Bill asks mike. What can you do if he doesn't make it back in time to which mike replies. Nothing bill tells mike. He's got a dangerous job now. Under the murky water. Mike is feeling his way along slowly carefully when he hears some noises. He doesn't know exactly what what they are but he sees a light at the surface and when he surfaces up he discovers to miners trapped in an air pocket barely breathing. Mike shoves the regulator in their mouth and smacks them starts yelling at them to breathe now the dilemma. How to get them out. There's no time to go back for another long. He can only take one out but who they draw. Rocks smallest rock stays the guy. Mike is taking out. Can't swim and he needs wait. So they load his pants with rocks mic shows. Them how to buddy breathe gives him as masks and off they go but not for long. The minor panics. Takes mike's knife and starts to fight with them. Mike drops might drops his light and gets to panic. Diver back to the air pocket. Mike goes back down to get his late and then he comes up and tells the minor to get some rocks. He's taken him out. This time keeps his mask and things go smoothly. We then see bill looking at his watch. It's four pm. Whereas mike suddenly bill sees the light. And mike comes up with the minor. It's been workman. Mike needs to go back but he doesn't have enough air and there's not enough time to go out in the mind for another tank. What can they do. Just an mike spots a welding torch where there's a torch there's oxygen tank has the same valve as regulator. What luck but mike need some tools to complete the rig now. He needs to go back down underwater To retrieve a toolbox he does and hooks up his regulator and carries the o. Two tank with them as he heads back breathing welding oxygen. Mike reaches the air pocket and finds the second minor limp. But not dead. He gives him the regulator and the minor starts to revive. He tells. Mikey sorry that he was scared. Mike says that's okay. You just didn't have enough oxygen this time. Mike says that things went a lot better than they made it out. We never did get the name of that panic minor nor did we ever find out what might charge mr graham for those of us of a certain age or watch a lot of old time television. You might recognize bill henderson. That's hank patterson who played fragile. Arnold the pigs. Dad on greenacres the episode sort of ended abruptly when when it switches to lloyd bridges on his boat telling us that three fifths of the planet is covered by sea. And how little we know so join us as we go below with si-hun as we've seen in many si-hun adventures. You never know where mike nelson will be going diving next.

There fell white a good info dump he shares. That guys We we've got a week one week and what happened at new liam happens here as phil would have been kind of like type type type type in through the computer Ken ziva like wake up the one that she was like right in front of like can she kind of rouse them from their knocking outed nece me just need to basically just need to do a treat wounds on them or put a serum or they're all tied up hands and feet good. Yeah can add Wing role do you while you skill medicine damn quite skilled actually therefore oh yeah that was a nineteen on the die plus twelve. Oh wow yeah So was that one right and then plus your intelligence. Modifier seated is at one eight or is it more than that. Treat medicine medicine so for treat wounds. So the dc was twenty and he restored one. Hit point per level right. So that's going to be nine. Hit points plus your intelligence modifier because he exceeded it by five more.

I'm i mean like either line of fire is going to be covered by somebody. So i think orange got this one so or service shoulder. Don't worry camper. i got you all right. And so he nesta nonstop tactically. They're attacked nod and he's going to go ahead and Aim as bessie can through fell no to target the one threatening okay and also going to be the trick tack so works. Ah and tack role going to be twenty six but minus what to because of fellow fells four okay so yes minus force and that's going to be twenty two. That will hit nonlethal. Well then that takes. Oh yeah. that's right. That's right so yes to an eighteen. Yes so my hold on minus two more because of cubicle cover so that's gonna be down to sixteen exceed and this is a against casey right. No oh okay all right okay. So let's see that it's going to be fourteen from gone trick attack. Damage twenty one. Plus fourteen is going to be thirty five thirty five. Yeah that's right okay. All right still standing but in mad look in real bad and what conditioning putting on there and you really should put that condition on before you roll the attack because that could affect the acc like the flat footed definitely hit true true I so either way. That was a huge it. Good stuff fell. You're up fell is going to move his Combat tracking to the one just east of mike and take another shot also nonlethal so accidentally providing that enemy cover. Yes okay well fell. It's going to take the shot regardless And that is a scene seeing that he's multiple air cover in front of he's not gonna do deadly so that is a nineteen hundred and there's gonna be sixteen damage ziva divas gonna try one more time she's going to Move to get him to the one right in front of her. And she's just kind of kind of growl at the earth on in front of her and danced in. So i can make you more stiff. That is going to be a twenty one total and then modest whatever for Trying to nonlethal takes it down to a seventeen plus the one forget takes. Backup tune to you guys. If you haven't figured it out yet the is sixteen. Mckay's is seventeen so you've got that here for sure. All you gotta do emily on. You gotta do to knock this one out deal nine damage your level.

"Right. Yeah so kuypers. Low frustrated us this and at this point he's going to try to on lethally dane john. I mean here's i mean. His thing. His captain did say that she wasn't going to try to kill them but she was to at least incapacitate them so he took that as a stand down. I mean he did this. Make the agreement with her on the ship that he'll follow her. Yeah exactly so. He's going to go ahead and still former attack Same thing as last time. So that's going to be a twenty six against the one that is still in the first row right next to the corpse and tack role. That is a sixteen. What's the cover penalty. And then also. Another four penalized because of Non lethally right. Sorry the cover is only too so it's a total of six okay. Mine is six okay. So let's got a sixteen plus thirteen that is going to be a twenty nine minus six. That's going to be twenty three good all right. Let's see on the gun is three four seven. Yuck and then the forty eight on saturday for math. That's the new shirt. One second for mad he go. Hey on the back. I don't do math on the back. Is i'm drunk and math is hard. You want me to turn down for what so that's gonna be twenty four plus six. Yes doesn't be thirty. Thirty points is normally nonlethal. North of mike mike. And what's the condition you're putting on it. I'm going to put only cool. No it's going to be flat. Footed doesn't matter it goes down. Woke conscious thank you okay. But that's that's it. That was exactly what you wanted to do. Well that's exactly what the crew on you to do yet fell you. Were up fells. Going to attempt to shot at the one standing next ziva before she has a chance to kill him because he doesn't trust you know seeing how she attacked with a sword. He doesn't trust us. She's actually trying to not be lethal. I think you need to do an insight. God aren't you would know. I mean you did kill. The last person killed him. The bleed do it hurriedly. No okay. I persist and direct shots. Every yeah okay. We don't have the talk story. So we're we're I don't do inside checks often. How does that incited since twenty three. So it'd be against your bluff or you're fucked if she goes bluff dude. You're never gonna ever learn anything about. I'm sure he's probably got a plus twenty three to it. We'll see she's got these six plus two as well not even close man. You have no idea all right then. fells going to shoot at the one next to mike. That has been dazed. Try and help him out one. That's been days. There is not one that's been days. The wise that icon still on because they are heartbroken intimidated. No longer intimidated. Okay so fell is going to shoot at the one directly south of mike. Okay and before doing that. It's gonna turn combat tracking on the move action And will use deadly aim which seems kind of counter intuitive but it just says an attack. I get extra damaged so actually damage to get it on the ground quicker even nonlethal you get a plus one for michael jordan and shot blocking line of sight so plus one i guess the cover would be mine is going to be negated by your sniper okay so cover deadly aim also does is to is to but then you have combat tracking on and coordinate shot so it's just a straight up and down role net zero zero screen. We got you there. That's going to be a one. He eight on my For who used to date us thirteen that deadly strong dude nine plus thirteen would be twenty two damage to nonlethal. Not one goes down all right. Okay you tell me. Can you do nonlethal with the sword. Like the curved blade. So i could turn it flat. Bop him the head with yams the final all right so ziva. Everybody else like really trying to restrain themselves and seeing honestly how the other one kind of went down pretty easily she's kinda turned off by it So jeeze hungry that's gonna hit That would be a fourteen numale. Okay so yeah. She's trying and she's just like but one must never accept weakness. I wrote them down. Because i did. Re listen..

Here we go with two rounds of full attacks on mike all right. That's eight eleven from the guys swinging. So that's actually a four and a seven nicest scale with the next one here all right. That's twenty one all right. I loved the idea that they're all just like swinging chairs. Mike and he's just like knocking them away with his arms like it's just like letting them his right because it's just like your arm is not taking any dense or anything because it's not getting three right you're using your armor to just settled down. Now this is like fighting child. Well this one. On the north that orange just shot at the kneecap is going to move towards orrin. But then hang a left and come down towards mike in do a single attack on mike and gonna miss and then the other one that was right behind is gonna move up on orange and swing on orange and is gonna kiss with an eighteen. I'm sure then the south one is going to move up step on the dead body of their friend. An attack ziva with a twelve hour right. So that is the flicked. It employs turn completely terrible showing by the staff. Work like the apa. Yeah which is like the point that felon are making when the are murder and all these people truck listen dude well and your captains pretty fucked up right now. So it's all working out during now showing restraint not killing people. I mean that's i'm doing everything. I can his emotions in check any check. They'll ever be what you got calmer. Newark dude all.

So i'm going to use my improvisation adornment to roll that because that was the to chris. Oh cool great. A five But so that's going to be total intimidate. That's going to be twenty nine twenty nine twenty two nine in the the extra in their gets it. Oh yeah so. It is the flicked employees. Close to you is demoralized. Now it was. I give shaking. It is shaking. But they don't seem to stop. I mean the one in front of you definitely seems freaked out more by your body language than what you said You didn't see a lot of comprehension okay with with your words. Then as a move action she will go ahead and throw a get on the last one okay. Get them on the demoralized one or oregon to try something. He's gonna yell out to the the one that demoralized closest to them. I guess and is going blow. The one that's closest to you is bleeding and that's closest to ziva is okay Yeah so the bleeding. Did that one appeared to be heading towards fell and oren. So we're gonna say stock before you do something you're gonna regret and his eyes flash and he casts command and and his command is going to be halt yes a will say And if they fail we'll save. They are dazed for one round all so that is eleven mobile so they will be dazed And that means that they can't move or just day days. Yeah religious basically done for around not stunned but they can't do anything specifically days right okay. That's all orange really. Do mike europe all right so i can do a move action and do intimidate says a move action. I'm going to activate my jump jets. And i want to like hop over the first round my first column of cubicles and land directly in the middle looking across the cubicle at the person in the middle of the next round column number. So all right. So mike you land right on the other side of this guy you just kinda stands there dope alie not him. I'm looking at the guy in the next column over sure. Own intimidate like lean across. Because i land and say you you heard the lady stand-down we don't want have to you. People throw that intimidate you get a plus two two. That's a dirty twenty yeah It will not get it will not get. It just missed it. Not intimidated your share. I'm sure yeah. So just kind of looks at you with determination and i mean you snarl pretty hard writing. I mean city. Lean right over your right there on him and this looks at you with a blank stare and an office chair in hand and it's now the afflicted employees turns. Let's get that bleed damage from you. John is it total. it's The equal to your level operative level so abuse level. Seventy seven bleed damage Still standing but not looking good at all huge gaping wound in their shoulder. The one that is intimidated by ziva is actually going to move towards mike because you scared them to attack mike with an office chair. That is a twenty which will miss against kac. i'm sure that spe- attack of opportunity it would. They're going to have some cover as you're reaching over the to try to hit them. Question is do you have a melee weapon. Inherent do not. I had my hand candidate the real lesson to learn here. Is that if you wanna hit mike. You'd better be hitting them with a desk. Not a.
What Should Small Businesses Do About Coronavirus?
"What should small businesses do to take advantage of this time of year. Which is really important. Their overall sales. I think you hit the right point there as much as covid. We'll bring some challenges. This is always an important time of year for for small businesses Some small businesses may see after their sales come from right last know forty five days of the year. So the the things that i think about. Our inventories attended be maxed out at this time of year roles and staffing can be stretched. And and you know whether it's seasonal workers or have you people work overtime certainly here. In the northern part of the country winter weather arrives and that can Throw challenges in as well now. I know i agree. It definitely will be It will definitely be a transition so with all of these types of things. How can small business owners prepare. Well as always we recommend that Small businesses work with an independent agent to to help them because in every small business is unique even when they stay within the same industry. So things that you know we like to have businesses think about our our their basic insurance coverage so that when something does if something does go wrong that they're they're protected So an inventories are staying at the teams Making sure limits or adequate their coverage With these being some of the most important sales days of the year making sure their business income coverage that protects them throw unable to conduct their business mixture their limits are adequate There can be challenges From hiring seasonal workers so whether it's training these employees for workers compensation or Making sure that you you hire the right people not forgetting to do background checks and and the like and then sort of just thinking about all of the you know the christmas traffic that comes in and all of that. You know before you add kobe done. So let's talk about a few of those because you talk about business income coverage but my understanding is is that this is something would happen besides cove it like if there was a fire or another natural disaster. Spit your fire seems to be. The you know the most dramatic but you know water damage can be you know. Got a very common one. Whether it's a a pipe break on the street out in front of you. A neighbouring tenant as high frac- or an apartment above you has frac- there's all sorts of different things that can happen. And when when any of those things happen and they cause you to have to close your doors Hopefully not for long period but even just a few days at this critical time of the year Not only are you losing sales. You're losing your profits. You also mentioned season the workers. I think a lot of folks don't look as seasonal workers as being covered by workmen's compensation but they are right. They absolutely are whether you're Whether they're coming in as a volunteer all the way to somebody that's you know part time You know even even you know potentially companies on a staffing agency Were you hire them. You know honest you know as staff is a regular staff. Just for the next month and a half. They are covered by workers compensation which protects them. But it also means they affect your experience and your prints it. It's interesting to me because a lot of small business owners they hire sometimes even more than their regular year ran staff. But they don't take a look their workman's comp limits. Yeah so Limit limits with workers comp or so much of it is statutory but there is an employer's liability limit. Which really gets it. Whether you're running a safe workplace and so Independent agents and insurance companies typically recommend that Businesses carry a half a million dollars players liability or sometimes even a million coverage but that At this point has become again once you're working with an independent agent has become relatively standard. So what happens when you hire some of these people and of course many of them may not be at your office or retail location. What if they're working from home had he protect yourself there. Yeah well the cupboard. Whether they're doing work for you they're they're covered so It becomes important to set out some standards of you know if they're working at the computer making sure they have appropriate workspace We certainly see repetitive. Motion claims because somebody has not set there The the table a little bit too high for them and so the way. They're reaching for their keyboard put stress on their on their wrists as an example. So it's important that A business sets expectations For both their you know regular employees but there is an employee as well that they set up safe business practices to Allow them to do their job to do it. Safely and one of the business practices of course. Is this idea of cyber threats because we know that small businesses are really a target of that. It's a lot easier to protect yourself from cyber threats when you're using a computer in the office but what happens when people are using their home computer. It really does add an extra challenge because then sometimes the corporate firewalls and ask corporate. Antivirus software doesn't extend to a personal home computer. So you're now Creating a potential exposure For your company where somebody you can access your system through a less protected source so there are You know guidance that we would give and independent agents would give to make sure that people are have You know antivirus protection on their personal computers. They're following safe practices. Not opening emails from sources of that are unknown. Sort of those suspicious Emails that are out there It's very important. People update their passwords and make their passwords complex. Those are those are sort of the basic things that are there And and i. And i think back to sort of sort of one other which we may want to get into which is the importance of companies you know even keeping their firewalls their System safe with through patches
What is Natural Moral Law? with Dr. Ross Inman
"So here's the big question what is natural moral law and what does it have to do with genesis? Excellent question was I see it I go conception of natural moral law. Entails at least the following to commitments. So the first commitment would be something like this. That God has built into the natural created order a moral dimension. So just as you might think, a piece of wood has sort of natural grain to it that. So to the moral realm has a natural grain too it that's grounded in God's creation intentional purposes. So, that would be the first tenant which all impact here in a second, and then the second thing would be that God has so created human beings with unique capacity to both know and live in accordance with this moral grain for the sake of living well I think one passage that's absolutely insightful in biblically rich which I wish we had more time to unpack is proverbs eight, twenty to thirty six. You might be asking what is proverbs eight, twenty to thirty, six with Genesis wanted to help to show you. So. If you permit me, let me just read very quickly a twenty to thirty six proverbs chapter eight. So this is what twenty two says. The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of all ages ago. I. Was set up at the first before the beginning of the Earth when there were no depths, I was brought forth when there were no springs abounding with water before the mountains have been shaped before the hills I was brought forth before he had made the earth with its fields or the first of the dust of the world when. He established the heavens there when he drew a circle on the face of the deep when he made firm the skies above when he established the fountains of the deep when he assigned to the sea, its limit so that the waters might not transgress his command when he marked out the foundations of the Earth then I was beside him like a master workman and I was daily his delight rejoicing before him always rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children, of ma'am. And now it was sons listen to me blessed are those who keep my waves here instruction and be wise and do not neglect it less. It is the one who listens to me watching daily at my gates waiting beside my doors for whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord but he fails to find mean injures himself. So a proverbs aid is is a wonderful passage that a uses a literary device here with respect to the personification of wisdom. So the idea your calls that we have a god has this intimate companion here. From the first act of creation onwards in in its denoting the fact that all of God's creative acts from the creation of the starry expanse to the separation of male and female there founded on and patterned after God's wisdom. So God. In proverbs eight here is is depicted as an expert craftsman master Workman's beautiful picture really So he's sort sort of starts with this meticulous plan. Any sort of skillfully fashions out of an unstructured pile of material something with strength. And Integrity it's actually really interesting here in proverbs eight, we have in a mere eight verses, a span of eight from twenty to thirty. There are eleven verbs here that denote God's conferral of order structure and pattern on creation. This is what I was referencing here a natural grain to the cosmic order. So for example, God's set up. He brought forth. He shaped he made he established he drew a circle very interesting sort of craftsmanship. Pictures. Here he made firm he assigned a limit any marked out the boundaries of his creation with skillful precision. And Care. So you have you have these. Images that portray God is the master workmanship in you just can't read proverbs eight Kyle without without your mind going back to genesis one through two. So it was beautiful about proverbs eight is just naturally points back to the original creation account were I think God's skillful craftsmanship in creation is on full display. In particular, we see in Genesis a genesis chapter one God will separating things apart and he's binding them together again, his craftsmanship on full display here. So for example, in Genesis, one, God separating light from darkness, he's separating the waters above from the waters below the expanse he's separating day from night he's separating see from land dwelling creatures sue separating. From the rest of the creation, he separating male from female, and he's separating of the seventh day of rest from the rest of the six days of his pre more. So you see him not only separating apart, but you actually see him interestingly enough uniting things together as well. And I think there are three important ways your kyle in in which we see God his master craftsmanship on display in binding things together and giving them natural integrity in strength. So first of all we have genesis one, twenty, seven. When God Unites Himself to human beings by making them in his divine image were made to reflect the radiance in the purposes of God. So there's something about the way that we are constructed Kyle. that. That makes the case that God is our final ultimate end. He is our greatest. Good. Were made in the image and likeness of this being who is a relational through and through and that nothing else can satisfy but union with God's

And then I don't know what you think, but I think Jesus is coming back soon. I mean. There's not too many signs left to be fulfilled. And I don't know that it'll be in my lifetime but I, have a feeling it's going to be soon. You might say, well, the Apostle Paul it was going to be soon. Well, it's gotta be sooner now than it was then. Next thing one talk to you about is make an investment in yourself. You're having a bad day.

The best Zoom alternatives
"Is Jefferson Graham Ula, the weekend edition of talking. Tech. In your I've spent the week looking at zoom alternatives. This was in response to what happened on Monday when Zoom went out for three and a half hours causing all those remote workers and all those students on their first day of school to start screaming what am I gonNa do what am I going to do? Well, there are several alternatives out there I don't think any of them are is easy to use in smooth as as zoom, but if it ain't workman. Let's look at some of the other ones. Google meet Webex skype Microsoft teams facebook Messenger Rooms gotomeeting. Discord and Gypsy. Let's start with Google meat. That's the most heavily advertised Google is really pushing it hard. It's Kinda bare bones, but it works APP. It'll do you find the features are not there in meat like are in zoom for the best feature though is this automatic transcription feature which sounds pretty cool until you ask Google, if you could save the transcripts and they say, no, you can't nor can they translate? Google will one day get their act together. Whether. That's from CISCO IS THE BEST Round Alternative. It was originally a APP the charge you money. Now, you can get a free version for beatings up to an hour. After that you have to start paying it has all the tools you want. It's pretty simple to use. So really liked that one suggested check it out skype is the granddaddy it's. The one that started it. All always been confusing hard to get people to connect with you on skype unless they have the APP and you have the APP and they you have to approve them and I it's like the facebook buddy system where you have to welcome them in. Once they're welcome in it's great but the pro the snag is connecting. Microsoft teams is built for corporations for enterprises and If you work at a company everybody in the company Microsoft teams since notes back and forth to each other video is sort of after thought it works best if it's someone in your organization, Facebook Messenger rooms this is facebook's zoom killer. I don't think. So the idea is pretty good. You can have a private conversation with as many people as you want to have it with but by default that conversation goes to your news feed for everyone to see and everyone to join in, you're going to have to tweak some stuff in there to get it to be private. I'll skip that one goto meeting against solid it's free for up. To three participants that may not be enough for you whereby is very interesting it's Norwegian company It's really best for one to one chats. The free version will only let you chat with up to four people. After that, you'll have to pay ten dollars a month, but overall I really liked it and sharing was really easy it's worth checking out discord is really aimed at gamers. They'd like other people to start using it as they say, it's good for Yoga classes in school clubs, but there's been a lot of heat a lot of bullying on on the service. So I would I would use one the other ones finally Gypsy this is nerd paradise it's open source it's
Boston Red Sox trade Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree
"Sox out slugged the Orioles. 85 featured six homers at Camden Yards, Zander Bogart said a solo shot Javy Martinez, a two run shot Rafael Devers, a three run homer. As Boston opened up in eight. Nothing lead on the O's through six before the game. Boston Traded relievers Brandon Workman and Heath Embry to the Phillies for pictures. Nick Bavetta and Connor Siebold on Friday. Ron Ron Nicky talks about the potential of the team making trades. I don't know about started assets leaving, but Maybe the return is is hope for the future, So so I think that's a better way to look at it.
Boston Red Sox Trade Relievers Workman, Hembree To Philadelphia Phillies
"We saw that the was it the red sox today traded with Philly Philly's a couple relievers went to Philadelphia today couple of relievers that are actually tied to the padres actually going to the Phillies, Brandon Workman, I believe they're closer went to the phillies earlier today there was another reliever heath, every Wednesday phillies as well so. Again the phillies bullpen has been the worst bullpen and baseball they wanted to share it up to some extent. They think that they should be one of the eight national teams in the postseason and I wanna see aj pro treat this trade deadline like he believes this team that this team can do something in the postseason and ghosts and go far and go deep in the postseason. I don't want this trade deadline to be treated like well I don't want them mortgage the future because we can't trade from the entirety of our farm system so. We're going to have to deal with what we got right now and hope POMERANZ goes back. No I WANNA see age. April are out there will
Can Your Diet Help Reduce Stress?
"What nutritional things can we do to help our stress levels and what can we do about the belly fat that being more stressed makes us onto. Well Kristen is not the only one feeling more stressed. In recent months the American Psychological Association conducts an annual poll to gauge overall stress levels in the population and the specific things that people are stressed about change from year to year. But the overall level of stress remains fairly constant even in the best of times, the majority of Americans report living with moderate to high levels of stress and they feel that their stress levels aren't healthy. Well, not surprisingly a new poll conducted in April and May of twenty twenty found that reported stress levels have jumped up considerably in response to the global. Pandemic. As. Many of us know all too well reaching for sweets or other comfort foods is a typical coping mechanism when we're stressed and with many people cooped up at home stress and boredom eating is definitely on the rise leading to weight gain, and if that weren't bad enough research does suggest that when we're stressed those comfort calories may lead to weight gain more quickly because of those high cortisol levels that Kristen mentioned. A couple of months ago I actually gave an online workshop with some strategies to help reduce stress eating, and if you missed that the replay is still available, you can access that at way less dot life slash healthy at home way last life slash healthy at home for some strategies to reduce stress eating. But wouldn't it be great if there were foods or nutrients that could defuse anxiety and ward off the negative effects of daily stress? No wonder I see. So many magazine and Web articles about Stress Busting Foods. Unfortunately, a lot of these are just puff pieces with little to no scientific basis sometimes, however, journalists will interview actual scientists about the research. The problem is that researchers often use that word stress to means something very different than what the general population of stress and that often leads to confusion. When we say we're stressed. We usually mean that we feel overwhelmed or anxious too many demands, deadlines and worries and not enough time money and energy to get it all done. Researchers on the other hand often measure physiological stress responses which don't necessarily correspond to our psychological experience. So when they report that food or a nutrient has an effect on stress that doesn't necessarily mean that you will feel better or. When you eat it let me just give you one example. In a story on the connection between Diet and stress researcher Robert. Ludwig told the morning edition about an experiment that he did on obese teenage boys in which the boys who eight highly processed cereal for breakfast had higher levels of Adrenaline, which is a stress hormone. Then those who ate a high protein breakfast instead. And the boys who ate more protein were also less hungry and they ate fewer calories at lunch. So chalk one up for a high protein breakfast. Unfortunately nobody asked the boys about their mood or how stressed they fell. So we don't know whether those different breakfast meals had any effect on whether they felt any more or less stressed. Nonetheless, if you had heard that piece on the radio, you probably would have concluded as did the reporter that eating lots of refined carbs and sugar will make you feel more stressed and anxious. But hang on just a minute because in her book, the Serotonin powered Diet Dr Judas Werthmann claims that a big dose of refined carbohydrates is exactly what you should eat to feel more relaxed and happy, and that's because refined carbohydrates promote the production of Serotonin, a feel good neurotransmitter. So which is it are we supposed to eat carbs or are we supposed to avoid them to beat stress? Will the reason that these two scientists seem to be contradicting one? Another is that they're measuring completely different things. Ludwig is looking at the effect of Diet on adrenal hormones and Workman is describing the effect of Diet on neurotransmitters of the to neuro transmitters probably have a closer relationship to our mood. Nonetheless I. Think the disadvantages of Workmen's approach outweigh. The benefits eating refined carbohydrates may temporarily boost your serotonin levels after all. That's probably why we crave them when we feel down. But they also send your blood sugar, insulin energy and appetite on a roller coaster ride and riding that rollercoaster on a regular basis is a good way to increase your risk of type two diabetes and heart
The search for ancient civilizations on Earth ... from space
"Okay. So first off Sarah Park is kind of a big deal. She's helped uncover prehistoric commented fossils in eroded canyon lake beds, an ancient amphitheater under an airport in Rome and Egypt, which is her specialty. She's uncovered thousands of settlements including more than a dozen pyramids. Are you tired the perpetually, but it's okay. She's written about those discoveries by the way in a recent book called archaeology from. From Space and yes, Sarah does go to sites and do some real digging in the dirt archaeological excavation. But her superpower is analyzing satellite imagery and data to know where to dig in the first place. Most of the imagery I use is called optical satellite imagery. So so it stayed essentially taken from light that's reflected off the surface and looking for changes in patterns we're looking for. How things relate to one another, and hopefully, that will indicate where there could potentially be archaeological sites or features with insights, and then we get to go out on the ground and do serve mapping and excavate them. When you say you use satellite images, what are we talking about a week? Where do those images come from and kind of how do you manipulate them? So it's a, it's a range of different satellite images. So if we're interested in looking really really large landscapes, we use data from NASA but if we're looking. Looking. At very high resolution satellite images, we use the essentially the imagery that you see on Google Earth, which is from a company called Knox our technologies that challenge with that data is that we can't see through trees. I'm dealing with rainforests, of Central, America or Southeast Asia or forest say in New England. Then we use Technology Coal Ladar which tends for light detection and ranging, and that's Eliezer mapping system that you put on an airplane or a drone or a UNLV essentially allowing you to remove trees and see what's there. In your book, you also explain how archaeologists now have the ability to detect temperature differences below the ground. Why? Yes. How first of all cool second of all, how does that work and why is that important? So one particular part of the light spectrum that is really really useful for for the work that we do is the thermal infrared. So if you have anything that's buried and is a chamber or avoid like a room, a tomb a very passageway, you know if it's kind of. Of like when you go into a basement or a wine cellar, you know the temperature drops a couple of degrees. So by using thermal infrared, you can see these very subtle differences in temperature, and if say an area shows up with a lower temperature, that's the shape of a rectangle. Okay. There's something that's there that we may need to check out right in Salt Lake. You're like cake in archaeologists out of business, right? So it's like you still end up going in there. It just kind of. Of helps like going in there and digging stuff up and looking at stuff with different techniques. It's basically just giving you a good idea of like there might be something here, right ex-. Exactly I mean the coolest part of my job I think is the actual physical excavation and that so time consuming and so what the satellites allow us to do is not just fine sites, but also track over time potential threats to them. So whether it's rising water whether it's urbanization or development, maybe there are. are other issues that could be affecting. The sites would allows it's a tool that allows geologists to help, monitor and protect sites right, and and so you even kind of tried to estimate like obviously estimating how many more archaeological sites might be out there, and it's in like the millions right I. I think I estimated and I'm probably I probably not going to give the right number guy the book even though it was the summer, it was Sarah, fifty, fifty, fifty, fifty, sixty, seventy. Eighty ninety. So. Yeah. So so basically I think something like forty, million, fifty, million sites left to find. But like I could be wrong, it could be one, hundred, million, it could be ten, million North Y'all just yet has written me an angry email saying how dare you? Thank, like I think I was pretty on the mark. So. There's another thing that I kind of wanted to talk to you because I don't talk to that many archaeologists, you know what I mean, but now at my own show and they can't stop me, Sarah. So. Can we talk a little bit about how colonialism and archaeology have intersected in the past and and maybe how it still does now, and what we can do about that? I? Guess that's a big question for you. The big question and it's something I and my colleagues think about. A. Lot. So first of all I, have to acknowledge that that archaeology especially, egyptology. It both those fields as well as anthropology, they have deeply racist colonialist routes. All of them, you know Westerners parachute in. Do their projects were essentially archaeological tourists that were probably rank. rankle a lot of my colleagues I. don't care someone needs to speak out about this and they leave which is, which is appalling. You know I pay guards around at the site where I work at list. I have very close relationships with the village My. My education course staff. I speak to them every single week and and at the end of the day, it's about those relationships. So I think we all have to do a lot of hard stares in the mirror at ourselves and ask what are we taking and what are we leaving? Are we training? Are we providing equipment and materials? What else should we be doing to create some more parody and the in the work that we're doing and I'm not the only one doing this by there's so many colleagues both in Egypt and elsewhere are being which were intentional. But I think we have to ask a lot of hard questions. You talk in the book about the importance of discoveries in how a few small discoveries can impact a field more than like a headline worthy discovery, which I. Really like because I think as a person, who's you know been a part of the scientific process. It's frustrating when you know only the big kind of discoveries. Get credit for changing fields. When in reality, it is those little findings you know what I mean. So I'll get, I'll give you an example a colleague and friend of mine few row him a fee. Fi is currently leading excavations in an area near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and he and his team just uncovered a new workmen's village. So it's a place where men would have stayed and lived as they were constructing tombs in the Valley of the Kings. and kind of compared to other discoveries, not just in Egypt, but but elsewhere, it really didn't get much play but I think it's one of the most extraordinary discoveries in. Egypt. In the last twenty years, we only know of one other workmen's village in West Bank in Luxor. It's an unbelievable fine because it's going to tell us about the daily life of the people who lived and worked. You know three, thousand, three, hundred, three, thousand, five, hundred years ago, right up and to me, it's those discoveries that are most interesting. All Right Sarah. Park. We appreciate you. This is a lot of fun likewise. Thank you so much. Go go go to bed I I. Learned. They're GONNA pay you. Thanks to Sarah. Park. You can read about her work and her book, which is called archaeology from space, how the
"Workman's Viola appreciate you taking the time out I had. Thank you very much for inviting me on new the heads of our Could you start by telling us about the charity team leads? I'm so bipolar. UK's been going for about fifty seven years on. It was founded by. To two women who? Were living with bipolar and effort will maybe the the when the corresponding on this was and they per letter in the press to saying how? Being alone, they did not to it to in that lots of different issues with the health service. Experience? Prejudice and discrimination. And, and they managed to get ready huge responsiveness, so hundreds of people responded, and they basically said a an initial support group based on in London. And then from that kind of spread like wildfire across the whole of the UK said it was. The base is a couple of people that went around setting up support groups. Putting note, says the price and just bringing together. People affected by bipolar. People living with the condition, but then close family members as well. And the philosophy behind it was the. Everyone's bipolar is different or unique, but. This. Common experiences that people have the allows them to be able to help. Manage the condition better so talking about education talking about. Treatment Mike diagnosis if they have call one yet. How did you of kind of mania and depression? So the idea was using the wisdom of the community to be able to kind of help each other to stay well. And full misery days the charities. Grown. We grew into about eighty-five face to face support groups across the country. We got an e community, which does the same thing so people affected by bipolar log on, and they talked to other people at anytime of the day I would call out just over five thousand members on that now, and then we also do telephone call by wants to talk to someone and is affected by bipolar. And get some advice than they can. They can bring up and we'll get them a cool. and. Obviously we've during nineteen. Though saves about to change, so we've got say you the face to face services, but we've been doing as in groups over over video coldest well. We talked to about one thousand five hundred people every month, and then we. We say that they tell us that probably about those about seven hundred moment or about. kind of uses to stay low and so Sadat's DOT says in a nutshell ready. Can you tell me a bit more about how you? The debt said in terms of the pandemic. changing how things work now intense that. so it could have been nine hundred. A massive impact on a child's. He's has done for Lauda I'm so the key one is. We've got to freeze up. A face to face groups and move towards a digital services. To being. A really does big big change for us, so zoom groups that we've done, and you've just run the monthly magazine groups run. They sometimes been allowed them more frequently for. Maybe once every two weeks than everyone. Rather than being for two free hours. They'll be tend to be about an hour because that's a limited people can do on June. we've also a lot more time into our social media on into our. Into a website. And, so we've seen our website topic having about a twenty percent increase and we've been doing is using it to a lot more articles out there for market dynamics from people that expense took about their experiences of living well with the during the nineteen. There's been a law research studies at all. Coming out. Around bipolar we, we want to involve out community in those, so we've been doing which motos. Identify, but I'm quite worried about how on affecting people with bipolar disorder. One of the things you found in a recent study is. Twice as many people if I totally disorder have been hospitalized, the suicide attempts than due to Cova, Simpson's. So, what are you doing at the moment? of support people and tackle. I, mean is really it is really worrying with them. We've covid nineteen the impetus having community. We seem that they increase in. Depression and anxiety and suicidal thinking as well and. We were asking people what? They were doing in terms of being able to. To excessive because he disappointed in this period, and Dan was very blonde, able to get access to the psychiatrist over to the GP. So what we enjoy charity is really getting the message out there. Gonorrhea community, I think it's really important and suicide that people go suicidal fools. It's. It's okay to talk about the suicide opposes. Will we really strongly discourage anyone to actually talk about cutting methods and so forth, and but talking about suicides? In Beta to reach out and get support, make such a massive difference with people.
Interview With Padma Lakshmi
"Bodmer. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, I think it's really cool. What you're doing because I would have loved something like this when I was in Asian American teenager. So I'm pleased that you know this generation of young Asian Americans will have that. Maybe they can grow up without some of the baggage that we have. Baggage and should but yes. I wanted to talk a little bit about you. Know your upbringing in your memoir, which is called love loss and what we ate. You talked about growing up in new. York and L. A. and I had no idea you. You grew up in in Los Angeles. Where did you grow up in L. A.? And what were your experiences like? I grew up in La. Puente which is in the San Gabriel, Valley Yeah. Winter Workman, highschool my mother got transferred from Sloan Kettering Hospital in New, York, to city of Hope Hospital in Duarte or are Katie I. Guess, and so that's why we moved and I went to High School in San Gabriel Valley, so yeah. I mean I consider myself such a New Yorker, because of the New York's along. It was my first point of entry into the United States when I immigrated here when I was four in. So you know that's what winds up getting a lot of play in my personal history, but I have very slowly formed deep memories. Of My years in La Pointe. Day, and you know my mother still lives in the house. I grew up in so whenever I come to La I always wind up going there, of course. Did you like growing up in L. A.? Did you like growing up La Puente? Was it a cool place to grow up, I, did not. Bad at my mother for moving to Los Angeles for years I, really? How's it against her? My poor mom, she's a single mom, and she's from south India and so she couldn't take the cold. And you know expensive to live in Manhattan, and so I understand as an adult, and as a parent all the reasons that she, of course you know moved us across the country as a child, it just seemed hugely inconvenient and down because in new. York I was much more independent because everybody walks, and you're in a very densely populated metropolitan area in Los Angeles says you buy as no like there's no center. There's no downtown in especially in La Pointe Day I was in a suburb and you need a car to get. In so, I felt like my independence was with stifled drastically, just moving cities, and then I was also I was in La Pointe Day I wasn't in like Sherman oaks or something. So you know in the eighties. When I was in high school, there were a lot of gangs in la, Puente and other than South Central. La It was a very seriously dangerous place we had. Had, Mexican. Gangs. We had a lot of Tolo and SCHOLLA's. And some of them are friends, but some of them also bullied me, and so I had my little conclave of friends who were mostly Filipino because our school did have a lot of Mexicans a lot of Filipinos lot of African Americans probably the most Mexican, and also Caucasian, but from my freshman year my senior. Senior year, you could really see the population of the schools you much more ethnic, in Brown and so I found it hard. You know because I'm Indian, and my skin is Brown on face value you could think I was Mexican may be, but then once I opened. My Mount was obvious and I don't think they were enough Indians at my school for anybody to form any. Any kind of opinion about me except other you know actually I'm curious. You mentioned that you were not super happy about the move to La for a while, not happy that your mom made that move and of course. That's a huge move from New York. New York is a huge move from India. Where much of your family is? When did you and how did you? come to understand your mom's journey and your mom's reasons for moving both of you so far well I understand that those moves were born of necessity. I understood why she didn't feel totally comfortable in New York, but I'm different than my mother, you know my my mother is is not as curious about being in the world, and just traveling and bumping up against other people, whereas that's all I wanNA do. You, know so I knew very very early on even when I was four that the reason we were leaving India is because it was very taboo for my mom to be a divorce. A divorce just didn't happen in Indian culture in growing up and going back to India I still don't know I know one person in India. WHO's divorced? You know, and so I knew that we were leaving to have a better life, you know. My mother left when I was two and I lived with my grandparents, and I didn't see my dad so I had no recollection of my real father I didn't even know what his face looks like. Because they had ripped up all the pictures so from two to four. I didn't see either of my parents so I literally was so excited to come to America, because America to me, meant being reunited with my mom.

WHO spokesperson sheds light on 'second peak' of coronavirus
"We approach one hundred thousand deaths from the coronavirus here in the US the world's top health officials are warning that coronavirus infections could go back up in the middle of this current outbreak they're worried about countries including the United States lifting restrictions too quickly this is separate from the so called second wave expected to happen in the fall here's Dr Michael Ryan the director of the world health organization's emergencies program speaking yesterday we cannot make assumptions that just because the disease is on the way down now that it's on them it's going to keep going down and then we're going to get a number of months to get ready for a second way we may get a second peak in this way I'm joined now by Dr Margaret Harris a member of the WHO's coronavirus response team and a W. H. O. spokesperson thank you so much for being with us doctor hers thank you very much for having me Rachel can you just explain more what the concern is about a potential second peak in in infections during this current moment this current outbreak so we sing with different countries quite different patents and what needs to be understood is this coronavirus is not the flute so a lot of people have put what a cold the flu lens on their expectations they keep on thinking it's seasonal but if you look around the globe we've got countries in the middle of the summer and autumn having large large outbreaks so we're not seeing a seasonal Patton what we are seeing is indeed when people ease too quickly that they do then C. and a rise in infections so we certainly don't say you have to be a lockdown but we're saying he's carefully so what are you advising the U. S. and other countries to do to prevent a second peak so first we'll know your transmission and this is because the US is a huge country you've got many many different states communities cities experiencing very different transmissions so they all have their own outbreaks at different stages so they're full of course they need to pace it according to what's really going on so how do you know that you have to be testing you have to be tracking and you have to have a very clear on his own what's happening with the transmission in your community so as you can pick your moment has the W. H. O. Boenning conversation with the trump administration about the urgent need for more testing wearing conversation with administrations with health authorities with health experts around the world all the time these discussions go on continuously but I don't have to tell you about the tension between the United States the trump administration and the WHL president trump has threatened to pull U. S. funding for the WHL or just leave altogether I mean given those tensions are you concerned that the US is not heeding the advice of the guidance from the WHL the US is a fantastic partner and the US has got extraordinary depths of great scientific expertise that they sort of tensions obviously are concerned and we do not want to have the U. S. leave we know the world benefits enormously from the public health leadership and the role the US is always played and we hope that will continue I want to ask you about clinical trials for the drug hydroxy Clark one of this is a drug that president trump has touted publicly the W. H. O. announced this week that it's temporarily stopping clinical trials of that drug why so there was a large observational study that was published in the lancet last week when they looked at people who were taking a number of medications and they found that there was an increased incidence in negative outcomes including death but also how to reach me is so it's essentially nobody will be randomized while that safety data is being reviewed president trump says he's been taking Hydroxycut workman for some weeks as a preventative measure against covered nineteen is the W. H. O. advising physicians not to prescribe Hydroxycut Laura Quinn either preventively or to cover nineteen patient so we advise physicians to prescribe hydro Sickler queen full the things that it's used for normally in the normal population such as autoimmune disorders we are not looking at it as a preventive or prophylactic measure and finally I mean we saw new Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Ardern celebrate the fact that that country currently has no one in the hospital being treated for covert nineteen they have turned the corner on this and then you look at the United States which is perhaps going to suffer a second peak in the current outbreak what is the state of affairs right now when you when you take a a broad look at the the global impact of this pandemic where are we now we are really seeing very very large outbreaks in many parts of the world so in fact last week every day we recorded the largest number of new cases that we had seen so one of the issues is when people see their particular outbreak coming down they think oh well that's done done and dusted but that is not the case certainly countries like New Zealand has shown what can be done with very clear communication very clean structure very clear decisions on what to do when and how and there's very very strong commitment by everyone in the community Dr Margaret Harris is a member of the WHO's coronavirus response team thank you for your time we appreciate it thank you
