UNICEF Gears Up for Global Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout
"The head of unicef the children's fund urged the security council on wednesday to support the agency's call for all countries to roll out inclusive national vaccination plans to end the covid nineteen pandemic this means regardless of their legal status or if they live in areas controlled by non-state entities. Henrietta four told the meeting on ensuring equitable access to new coronavirus vaccines in places affected by conflict and insecurity. Her comments come as the agency steps up plans for the global distribution of covid nineteen vaccines unicef aims to procure two billion doses of covid nineteen vaccines by the end of the year. In addition to the two billion doses of other vaccines that obtains annually on behalf of one hundred countries miss for highlighted the difficulty of reaching an estimated sixty million people living in conflict areas under the control of non-state armed groups as well as refugees and migrants who are routinely excluded from national immunization drives after repeating the un secretary.

UNICEF chief’s appeal for access to children caught up in Ethiopia’s Tigray
"Three months since fighting began in ethiopia northern state of tigray great concern for the plight of youngsters there. The un children's fund unicef has warned in an alert on wednesday the agency's executive director henrietta. Four said that the very little was known about the impact of the conflict was deeply troubling because of difficulties getting humanitarian access. The warning comes almost two weeks since unicef and partners dispatched twenty nine trucks filled with emergency nutrition health and protection supplies entity gray where central government soldiers have confronted tigray people's liberation front forces. That convoy was a step in the right direction but nowhere near the level of access and scale of support. That is actually needed. Miss four said unicef cited reports of three hundred unaccompanied or separated children among the more than fifty seven thousand people who fled to neighboring sudan the are potentially many more among the approximately two hundred eighty thousand internally displaced in tigray and neighboring regions the un agency said
Fauci: Up to 90% of population needs vaccine for herd immunity
"The cdc is now requiring a negative test for any travelers coming from the uk but officials had been downplaying the threat of these of these new strains that we are seeing these variations in the uk. I think you had said earlier this week. That a mutation doesn't mean the virus more dangerous or more deadly. Dr fauci said that these these these variations may already be here in the united states. So why why this new step. Why this new restriction important for people to know that we're layering protection on top of protection on top of protection. No individual protection is going to be one hundred percent. A lot of americans don't know that back in march through the presidential To twelve f authority we restricted. The ability of people to come to the united states from the uk and travel is down ninety percent even pre knowledge about this new variant from the uk. So we've already had severe travel restrictions from the uk. testing within seventy. Two hours isn't one hundred percent. It's not perfect but it does. Further decreased the number of people who will come in and then what we recommend to people according to the. Cdc is that once you get here you still isolate for seven days if you've had a negative test or for further longer than that if you don't get a test on this end ten to fourteen days so those things layer together. We'll significantly decrease chance of exposure to a new variant. But here's what the american people most need to know. Mitigation works the shows that it works. So if you're worried about a new potentially more contagious variant. It that much more important that we follow the four ws. Where a mask wash your hands. Watch your distanced and the fourth one is weight on gatherings especially with one last holiday coming up new year's we need to be very careful. You said that you understand the skepticism. From many african americans about the vaccine obviously given the history of medical racism in this country and you of course got vaccinated on camera to to to to send a message. What else needs to be done to convince people including some of those most vulnerable that this vaccine is not only safe but it's effective and necessary. Well we need to continue to acknowledge what's happened in the past. And i've talked about ski. Talked about henrietta lacks but they were real issues going on today right now in this country when you look at seven hundred women dying pregnancy related complications. Most of them black and brown in the united states. When you look at not just cova hypertension and cancer disparities. We need to acknowledge these things. And we need to show people meaningfully in a real sense what we're doing to improve on these measures and that's why a surgeon general before covid health equity was a critical part of everything that i did. And then we need to engage with trusted influencers. We need to make sure our pastors in e moms in rabbis. All of whom. I'm working with. Have the facts so that they can spread it to to their congregants and we need to walk the talk and that's why i got vaccinated on live tv. I want people to know that as a scientist at the doctor. I've looked at the data. I know the protections that are in place. I know an african american female helped. Develop this vaccine and tony foul. She and i made sure that the trials were were enrolled with diverse participants. And i got vaccinated because i trusted and how we end this pandemic

"He stressed the need for education about the vaccine in communities of color, specifically black communities. And it's worth adding that we have people of color represented among the researchers who developed the vaccine, the scientists and doctors who reviewed it. In the tens of thousands of study participants who bravely volunteered so they could prove this vaccine safety and its efficacy. But and this is an important but Having a vaccine is only the first step. We must now move from vaccines to vaccinations, and it would be a great tragedy if disparities actually worsened. Because the people who could most benefit from this vaccine take it. We know that lack of trust is a major cause for reluctance, especially in communities of color, and that lack of trust Is not without good reason at the Tuskegee Studies occurred within many of our own lifetimes to truly combat vaccine hesitancy and encourage diverse enrollment in clinical trials. We must first acknowledge this real history of mistreatment and exploitation of minorities by the medical community and the government thing we need to explain and demonstrate. All that had been done to address these rooms to make sure tragedies like the tough Gigi syphilis study, or the exploitation of Henrietta lacks never happen again. The black man who participated in that study, given free medical exams in payment, but never offered treatment for the disease, even after penicillin became the main form of treatment. Four.

"I'm jenny kaplan and this is encyclopedia will manteca. Today's stem was a barrier breaking astronomer. Whose work on cepheid stars lead to a complete reevaluation of the size of the known universe. Her work was instrumental to the development of the fields of astronomy cosmology and astrophysics. Let's talk about the extraordinary henrietta. Levitt henrietta swan levitt was born on july fourth eighteen. Sixty eight in. Lancaster massachusetts to george and henrietta. She was the first of their seven children growing up. Henrietta 's family was fairly well off her father. George worked as a minister and the congregational church. The downside of georgia's job was at the family. Had to move whenever he changed congregations when henrietta was in her teens. The family moved to cleveland ohio. After graduating from high school in eighteen eighty five henrietta enrolled in a one year college. Preparatory course at oberlin college followed by two years as an undergraduate there at the time henrietta was studying music following her sophomore year at oberlin henrietta and her family moved back east to cambridge massachusetts home of harvard university. Henrietta was desperate to enroll at harvard but the university didn't accept women at the time instead she enrolled what was then known as the harvard annex an educational establishment for women. That would eventually change. Its name to radcliffe college for two years. Henrietta studied math and astronomy before graduating in eighteen. Ninety two after graduation. Henrietta took a job as a volunteer research assistant at the harvard. College observatory though. Her parents had to support her financially. During her time there she was able to build up credits towards an advanced degree in astronomy and she found great satisfaction in the work at the observatory. Henrietta was part of a large project attempting to catalog the brightness position and color of all observable stars in the universe which at the time was believed to just consist of the milky way. Henrietta was tasked with analyzing photographs in order to determine the necessary star data. She was asked pay particular attention to any star whose brightness varied over time and to record how long the cycle of bright to dim too bright again took otherwise known as the period of variation at the beginning of eighteen ninety. Six henrietta left harvard to spend some time in europe. She was having issues with both her sight and hearing and her doctors had suggested that a trip abroad might help upon her return to the united states. Two years later. Henrietta moved to wisconsin where her father had just taken a job at a new congregation. Henrietta i managed to find a job for herself as an assistant at the local college in nineteen nine two. After five years in wisconsin henrietta contacted edward pickering the director of the harvard college observatory with their request to have her old lab. Notebook sent to her in wisconsin. She wanted to complete the report on stars. Sheet started so many years before she also asked pickering if you knew of any observatory jobs located in warm weather since it was better for her health. Pickering was unaware of any job openings in the tropics but he was so impressed with henrietta 's previous work offered her a paid fulltime job at the harvard college observatory as a computer computers as they were called at the time or people who did all of the calculations and data analysis by hand this also gave henrietta the opportunity to finish up the work on the star catalogue in nineteen oh eight. Henrietta published her first academic papers summarizing her work on the star catalogue. The paper focused on the existence of an extraordinarily large number of stars with variable brightness located in the magic clothes. Most importantly she noted that the brighter stars have longer periods meaning. It takes longer for them to go from dim too bright to dim again for four years. Henrietta continued the time consuming work of analyzing variable stars. She discovered that there was one type of variable star called a cepheid star that seemed to pulse at a rate directly related to the stars actual brightness since there's a very clear and precise relationship between brightness and distance henrietta realized that one potentially use a cepheid stars variability to calculate the distance from that star to earth. This was a major revelation in nineteen twelve. henrietta published. A paper about her breakthrough. It was extraordinarily well received by the scientific community. And astronomers around the world began working to utilize henrietta discovery. Just a year. Later a european astronomer was able to determine the distance of a number of cepheid stars from earth which laid the groundwork for a method of determining the distance of any sethi these cepheids with known brightness distance ratios became known astronomy as standard candles utilizing henrietta 's work edwin hubble then calibrated how to measure the distance to steffi's located even farther away his astonishment he discovered that many of these cepheids were so far away that they were actually beyond the milky way. These stars were in other galaxies. Meaning that the universe was much bigger and filled with much more than humanity had imagined up to that point in nineteen twenty one having truly made a name for herself in her field. Henrietta was named the head of the stellar. Photon matry department at harvard college observatory. She passed away before she could start her new job. Henrietta died on december twelfth nineteen twenty one in cambridge massachusetts from stomach cancer. She was just fifty three years old.

COVID-19 vaccine: UNICEF to stockpile more than half a billion syringes
"Countries around the world gear up to distribute covid nineteen vaccines, the UN Children's Fund. UNICEF. has begun laying the groundwork for safe and efficient delivery by buying and pre-positioning key equipment. The agency said on Monday it will begin by stockpiling around five hundred, twenty million syringes in its warehouses to have a billion ready for use throughout twenty twenty one to ensure syringes arrive before vaccines are distributed. This will be on top of the roughly six, hundred, twenty, million syringes that it will purchase for other vaccination programs to US next year against diseases such as measles anti. FLOYD UNISEX CHIEF HENRIETTA FOUR Spelled out that in order to move fast later, we must move fast now noting that by the end of the year over half a billion syringes should be in place that's enough syringes to wrap around the world one and a half time she said
Stillbirth rate rises dramatically during pandemic
"Nearly. Two million babies are still born every year or one every sixteen seconds a figure that could worsen due to the covid nineteen pandemic according to a new U. N.. report. Most stillbirths or eighty four percent occur in low income countries but high income nations face this challenge. Losing a child at birth or during pregnancy is a devastating tragedy for a family said Henrietta four executive director of the UN Children's fund UNICEF. Many of these deaths could have been prevented with high quality monitoring, proper ante, natal care under skilled birth attendant she added. UNICEF issued the report alongside the World Health Organization who the World Bank Group and the U. N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The partners warned that a reduction in health services due to covid nineteen could cause nearly two hundred thousand additional stillbirths over a twelve month period.
Want To Dismantle Racism In Science? Start In The Classroom
"All right today in the show were unscrewing what's not working in science education around representation and racism, and how to teach science in a more inclusive way and idea from listener and scientists Esther Kunle yes. Thanks to Esther we went looking for K., through twelve teachers teaching at the intersection, of Science, and racial justice at all grade levels I want to start with. Let me see fears. She's a post doctoral fellow in the collaborative for stem education and outreach at Vanderbilt. Okay. She's a black scientist. Out in science classrooms Tennessee in among fifth graders. At this one particular school, she is a total rockstar. So walk into a classroom and they'll be like. Yeah it's me. It's me everyone autographs today. We lit up each others world. Our say, let me see a drops into fifth seventh and eighth grade. Science classrooms like a real life. Miss Frizzle I'm not kidding you. She wheels the cart between classes clattering with beakers and different very interesting looking chemicals and students. They're so intrigued they run up to our like remind wife we've. Just all that stuff and then when she's in the classroom, let me see a doesn't just help them run experiments. She'll also delve into the ethics of designing an experiment. Okay. She'll talk about how wrong the Tuskegee study was, which is winning scientists studied syphilis in black men and withheld treatment Sushi's like introducing bioethics to kids as important part of the curriculum. Yup. Scientists are presented as very human herself included and her students can totally handle these conversations. We see what's happening with this generation with them protest and they're speaking out on, they're not having it. They're not. They're not going to allow us to continue to destroy their and our point is that if science teachers can tap into that compassion and That curiosity and show the way that scientists have messed up. Kids might take an interest in science I love, and if we can't do that, then we are GonNa lose them and I think it's hard for minority kids. They already don't see themselves as the teacher or the Christmas doing the science. So that already unemployed simple block of well, that's just what the old white man with the crazy hairdo. and. So another thing let me see Ya does is namedrop scientists of color as often as possible. She'll talk about a physicist did Eisler medical physicists had he and Ecole, green astronauts, Joseph Akaba, and genetic APPs. She designed a paper rocket lesson around them and this helps kids develop a mental picture of a career in stem beyond a doctor or a dentist. This is so cool because it's not just about teaching science history, right? It's also helping students see themselves as scientists and for Gretchen Craig. Turner. The next teacher I, want to introduce you to. This level of engagement becomes even more important students get older and start to you know get into their teenage years and develop their own opinions their own opinions about science. Yeah. You know to be critical of it. Oh. Yeah. That was not in my k. through twelve science education hers either I don't remember a lot of writing or opinions being a part of science. In fact, it was very much I believe taught the opinions didn't belong in science right that it was supposed to be a right answer Gretchen teaches. At Burlington Edison High. School. In Washington state she is white and her classroom to be as inclusive as possible and to reflect the diversity of the student body and in her first year of teaching a biotech class. This was back in two thousand, ten in English teacher gave her a copy of the book. The immortal life of Henrietta lacks was like you should teach the steer students. Yeah. So the history of the Hilo Cell Line Yep. So Henrietta, lacks cancer cells were used for years by scientists without her family's knowledge cells that. One. Of the most important cell lines in medical research, her case raises so many questions about patients, rights. Yep questions raised in this book. So Gretchen got a bunch of hardcover books for her class and we read it and. It shaped how I teach in tremendous ways because the students responded to it. So strongly, you know they were excited maybe not at first I still get a lot of Turner. This isn't an English class, right but but they got into it. So into it, it is a six week unit the book in a Science Class. STUDENTS DO SELL labs while they're reading and they journal to. Okay so they're jotting down notes on different themes like medical apartheid informed consent lab science, and at the end they write a big paper and also oftentimes in class, there will be students who who's own families have experienced medical apartheid in the. Effects of that and I think some of the students and see themselves in the story of the lacks family. The conversations become really personal and probing not. You know necessarily what you'd expect in science class but exactly what Gretchen is hoping for well I, think what you know many young people ultimately want from their teachers is to be seen into be heard. And so if the science curriculum. if they feel seen and heard through that curriculum, they're more invested. So when her students learn about genetic testing, Gretchen includes a film about the innocence project and they're a group that uses DNA testing to exonerate those who've been wrongfully imprisoned. And Gretchen has her students, write poetry and songs as kind of oaths to those wrongfully convicted my blood, my skin, my hair, all held the key to my freedom DNA. My eyes glazed over desperate for relief with a pain. I now understood my hand reaches for I. Don't Know How often you're around teenagers. But the. Teenagers of this just tremendous sense of justice and what is right you know, and so those conversations are often very passionate for students But it's also the world that they live in. Wow I mean kwong, there's so many things in here. That are so powerful in and I know there's a lot of science teacher who listened to shortwave who might want to incorporate racial justice in history into their teaching too I mean, where do they look well Gretchen and let me see a- had the same advice which is at teachers should fill in the gaps in their own racial understanding I learn about the history of science or their field, and that's exactly what the last teacher I spoke with is doing. Vigia satiety is a college professor at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and looking critically at her own field statistics has been hard painful work. You know I honestly I just feel like I'm I missed something that was really important to learn about my discipline and I'm I'm a little bit mad at myself for not being curious on my own to figure out the origins of things and she has been startled to realize the full extent to which modern statistics draws upon the work of you. Genesis Francis Colton Karl Pearson Ronald Fisher. Some of the most foundational tools and stem like the normal distribution curve were applied to support their racist and eugenicist theories tools that we. Use today, but we don't really stop to think about the people who created them and why they created them. So the is trying to stop to teach yourself where these came from, but to not rush the process with some slapdash curriculum, she wants to incorporate these historical into her classes with care I want to give it the space deserves and of course, and not not to feel like this awkward add on that people can optionally engage in in a way that centers the students Vigie like all the teachers I spoke with designs, her classes by asking herself who's being left behind with this material, and how can I bring them along? That's what can be gained from. And anti-racist science education I think all of us in our minds have been in or heard of course where the professor says look to the laugh looked the right. One of you won't be here at the end of this time or you know something horrible this should not ever be uttered in a classroom. I say look to your left to your right like I. Want you all to stay. I want you all the love my field as much as I. Love my field because there's so many interesting things you could do with it and we really could use your wonderful mind and our discipline. We could use your perspective and the things that you bring. So basically to change science, we have to change how we teach science. To fix the lab gotta fix the classroom.
RBG in Her Own Words
"Hi It's no rouse and Judith Rosenbaum. And this is, can we talk the podcast of the Jewish women's archive where gender history and Jewish culture meet in this episode we're honoring and mourning the loss of Supreme Court. Justice.

Thousands of people have gathered to express both grief and gratitude leaving flowers, writing messages and chalk lighting yard site candles.

The Biblical Dictum Setback Sabatier Dove Justice Justice. You shall pursue adorn the walls of her chamber and the Word Setback Justice was embroidered into one of the lace collar. She famously war with her robes though tiny person justice GINSBURG was larger than life a Jewish hero and an American and feminist icon she stood for gender equality and racial justice and modeled fighting steadily for what you believe in. Her famous friendship with Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia showed that you can disagree and still get along. She was a role model for so many people, but it's important to remember that she had role models to in two thousand and four justice Ginsburg spoke at a Jewish women's archive event marking three, hundred, fifty years of Jewish life in America. She talked about some of the Jewish women who inspired her. One of them was Henrietta sold. Zolt was born in eighteen sixty in Baltimore and like Ginsburg was both visionary a doer who faced in overcame many obstacles as a woman. She founded DASA and helped build the social service infrastructure of what became the state of Israel. So here's ruth. Bader.

Better than any other person whose words I have read. Sold had seven sisters. And brother. When her mother died the man well known for his community spirited endeavors. Hi, imperative. Offered to say the codfish. The mourners fair that Ancien customer instructed to be recited only by men. Zone responded to that carrying offer in a letter dated September sixteen. Nineteen sixteen here Kuenssberg reads the key passage of the letter Henrietta sold wrote in response. It is impossible for me to find words in which to tell you. How deeply I wish touched by your offer. To Act as. Well my dear, mother. What you offered to do is beautiful beyond thanks. I shall never forget it. You will wonder then that I cannot accept your offer. I know well and appreciate you say about. Jewish. Custom. That only male children recite the prayer and if there are no male survivors.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal.

Nineteen ahead of the United Nations Children's fund UNICEF said on Monday calling for the original release executive director.

My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

She prayed, the light from the Half Moon was not bright enough to spoil her ruse Henrietta. Let her eyes open just a crack when she heard the door opening in dim blue light cast by the window. She could see shadow pass darker than the rest of the pitch black night, her stepmother stocking steadily up to the end of the bed, where Berta lay blissfully asleep as the witch past the window, Henrietta thought she saw the blade of an axe glint in the moonlight. She shut her eyes tight ready to bolt for the door if her stepmother got any closer, the bed shook sharply underneath Henrietta, and she stifled. Gasp, the axe had not struck her neck. She risked another peak toward the end of the bed and saw the shadow raising the axe over its head for a second strike. Ill. So brought down the axe again cursing as it got stuck. She put her foot up against the bed and wrenched it free. Then she brought it down one final time breathing heavily ill. So withdrew acts dragging along the floor. She went Henrietta waited as long as she dared before throwing off the covers and sliding off the bed when her bare feet touched down. One of them slid a wet and sticky. Patch on the floor blood Berta 's blood, a shiver ran up, her spine as she tiptoed towards the door shoes. Clutched in her spare hand Henrietta crept out of the room, she passed the witches room with agonizing slowness measuring. How much weight she put on each foot before proceeding when she heard her stepmother snoring, she stopped? And I d a forming with a deep breath. She pushed open the door to the witches room ill says room was even darker than her daughters, since her curtains remained drawn overnight, but Henrietta did not need to see clearly the table. She was looking for never moved. It was where the witch stored her magic wand, Henrietta felt her way along the wall using the witches snores to keep her oriented, in the darkness, she walked as lightly as she could holding her breath for fear of X hailing too loudly. Eventually, she felt her foot brush against a table leg. She then felt her way through the trinkets on the surface until she grasped the wand. A spark ability trinity passed from the stick to her palm when she gripped, it Henry Etta almost laughed in shock and relief. Once she left the witches room, Henrietta, flew through the house with dreamlike speed hallway kitchen front steps. There was only one place to go and only one person who would help her her sweetheart Roland. Whatever unspoken contract, she had with the witch. For adopting her was truly broken. She reached Rowlands farmhouse and pounded on the door with all her might for a horrible moment. Henrietta worried that Roland slept so deeply that the witch would wake and catch her before Roland even heard her knocking, but the moment passed and the door opened revealing a bleary eyed Roland. We'll thank heavens my stepmother, killed her own daughter and thinks she killed me. When the sun rises, and she sees what she's done. I'll be lost. She was almost out of breath when she realized Roland was barely understanding anything. She said, so she collected herself. And told him the story from the very beginning from the apron, he'd given her to the murder to the theft of her stepmother's magic wand, she saw the sleep follow away from his eyes with every new detail Rowlands, brow, knitted and concern.

She came in the lacks family came. She did a reading of her book. And so there's still some friction between the lacks family, and like in age and other people sure there's a lot of ethical companies who have taken advantage of that technology. So, but I was just really excited to see the author to see some of the family members into be right in the heart of where it started. Yeah. Guys, if you don't know anything about the heedless story about Henrietta lacks in about these cancer, this cancer cell line that was taken basically without consent from a page. Patient who had cervical cancer and be literally became the key cell line. And almost every laboratory across the world. It's a fascinating story of this basically ambivalence, right? There's a deep inbev lands with about the fact that this cell type has saved so many lives, but at the same time this was utter and more than questionable deeply unethical practices. Taking somebody's personal information. Their personal data the personal actual tissue with from them without their consent. And of course, the conversation here is because this was a less informed. More black family in an era. When was this? It was early in the nineteen hundreds or like mid nineteen hundred. I'm gonna look it up because that's obviously a big part of the conversation right before informed. Consent was even thing. Yeah. Nineteen fifty one is when she died. So it was she was born in nineteen twenty. She died. Fifteen fifty one. So it was just before she died. Right. And then they use those cells this before informed consent. It changed a lot of the way that we do practices, and of course, people have profited off of. Yes. A lot of people have done nonprofit, incredible work, and people countless lives have been saved downstream from that. But also a lot of big companies have profited and the family didn't really see any of that. Which is where the tension comes. So I highly recommend Rebecca's. Glitz book is incredible. I think they did they didn't HBO special on it with Oprah. I watched it too. It was pretty consistent with the book. Yeah. And it actually was pretty good with the science. I felt like yeah. Which is always the coast. That's true. So yeah, highly recommend, but that's fascinating that you got to see the family, speak and see the I don't know. We don't often get that. What do you what do they call it? Whenever you watch antiques roadshow. This is such a dumb thing to say provenance, you know, like when there's a an artifact of history, and it's so far removed from our everyday lives. And we've only heard about it and newspapers and books, but then all the sudden we get to read the letter of the person who made that piece of pottery or we get to see the hands it passed through or things to see all the rich history around it and be lucky enough that her kids were still alive could have those conversations about what it meant to them. Right. Exactly. Oh my God. So I don't wanna say cool. That's not the right word. Yeah. It's very interesting story. Yeah. It's it's hard. And there's a lot of deep, you know, obviously just comfort around, but it is fascinating. So your lab doesn't actively UC. Is you need more unique more than just a cell line? You need all these inner place. So, and it's also the type of cancers that we're looking at for the metabolism piece. We're looking at colorectal cancer and also pancreatic cancer. So yeah, very devastating progressive disease. And then for some of the other signaling models that we have were looking at breast cancer. So it's just making sure that the experimental tool set that you're utilizing is relevant to the disease setting that you want to study. So your work is interesting because it's not quite basic research. It's not quite applied. Would you call it like what do they call translational it somewhere in the in the chase sort of in the middle?.
