This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 25th, 2022.The head of the World Health Organization says it's a mistake to think Omicron is the last variant that will emerge. And as sorta proof, a sub-lineage of Omicron, BA.2, is under formal investigation by the UK Health Security Agency. 426 cases in the UK so far, and it's been spotted in the United States. It's called “stealth Omicron” because it can't be distinguished from other variants using PCR tests. So far, they feel current vaccinations work well against it. If you're wondering how often you need to clean the house, and yourself, Japanese scientists have found Omicron can survive longer than earlier strains on plastic surfaces and human skin. They say Omicron has a high "environmental stability" and that's what has helped it replace Delta as the dominant variant. It lasts about eight days on plastic, and 21.1 hours on skin.The FDA is revoking emergency use status for COVID antibody drugs from Regeneron and Eli Lilly. The agency says the two don't work against Omicron. The drugs were bought by the federal government and have been administered to millions of Americans. Alternate therapies from Pfizer, Merck, and GlaxoSmithKline are still okay but are in short supply.We will continue using the term here in our report, but the CDC is trying to pivot the language from being “fully vaccinated” to being “up to date” with vaccination against COVID. Being up to date means you've gotten all the recommended shots at the intervals recommended. Which would make you fully vaccinated. But if it's time to have a booster and you haven't gotten it, you are not up to date, with no apparent repercussions for that yet. The damage done by COVID goes well beyond matters of health, both physical and mental. High school graduation rates dipped in at least 20 states after the first full school year that was disrupted by the pandemic. That would end nearly two decades of nationwide progress toward getting more students graduated. Some states loosened standards, but the rate dropped anyway.In the United States, cases were up 2%, deaths are up 39%, and hospitalizations are up 18% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since January 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Ohio, Alaska, New York, Connecticut, and Tennessee. There are now over 27 million active cases in the United States, at 27,238,138.The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Alaska and Montana 93%. Wyoming 83%. Alabama 81%. And the U.S. Virgin Islands 79%. The top 10 areas with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Waukesha, WI. Dane, WI. Uvalde, TX. Nome Census Area, AK. Maverick, TX. Santa Cruz, AZ. Dimmit, TX. Randolph, IL. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. And Wyoming, WV. There have been at least 868,494 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related.The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 79.1%, Rhode Island at 78.4%, and Maine at 77.2%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are Alabama at 49.2%, Wyoming at 49.6%, and Mississippi at 49.8%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 63.4%.Globally, cases were up 34% and deaths up 23% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending up since January 17.

Our guest is Kazuko Nagao, the founder of Oconomi, the okonomiyaki shop based in Queens, New York. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese-style savory pancake, which is very popular in Japan. Despite its rich, delicious taste and approachable style, okonomiyaki is yet to be known to the world outside Japan. Kazuko has been making okonomiyaki for New Yorkers at street fairs and food events for a decade. But last month, in December 2021, she decided to turn her seasonal okonomiyaki business into regular operations throughout the year. In this episode, we will discuss what exactly okonomiyaki is, regional varieties of okonomiyaki (which represent the pride of each region!), how to make okonomiyaki at home, and much, much more!!!Photo Courtesy of Fuko Chubachi.Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network.

New Thinking: Diverse Classical Music

Widening the repertoire of classical music comes under the spotlight in today's Free Thinking conversation as New Generation Thinker Christienna Fryar speaks to researchers uncovering music that has been left out of the canon. Ahead of concerts featuring their work, she hears about the stories of three composers: the 18th-century French polymath Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the Japanese trailblazer Kikuko Kanai and the prolific African-American composer Julia Perry. Christopher Dingle, a Professor of Music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, is studying the music of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799). Born in Guadeloupe to an enslaved mother and a French plantation owner father, Boulogne lived an extraordinary life – as well as being one of the first black colonels in the French Army, he was a master fencer, celebrated violinist and conductor, whose concertos rival his contemporary Mozart in their fiendish virtuosity. Mai Kawabata, from the Royal College of Music, is a musicologist and violinist. She shares the story of Kikuko Kanai (1906-1986), the first female composer in Japan to write a symphony. Kanai made waves in the musical establishment by fusing Japanese melodies with Western-classical influences –her “life mission” was to popularise the folk music of her native Okinawa. Michael Harper, a vocal tutor from the Royal Northern College of Music, is championing the work of Julia Perry (1924-1979). Perry occupied a unique place as a black American composer – female and upper-middle class, she won Guggenheim fellowships to train in Europe. Despite a life cut short by paralysis and illness, her works include 12 symphonies and 3 operas. This research, done in collaboration with the AHRC and Radio 3, will result in special recordings and a concert performed by the BBC Philharmonic broadcasting works by Nathaniel Dett, Margaret Bonds and Joseph Bologne in Afternoon Concert on BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday 2nd February at 2pm and then on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001414g And listen out for another episode of the Arts & Ideas podcast featuring the research being done into the classical musicians: Nathaniel Dett, Margaret Bonds, Ali Osman and Isaac Hershow and a further concert. Produced by Amelia Parker If you want more information about the Diverse Composers project you can find that on the website of UK Research and Innovation https://www.ukri.org/news/celebrating-classical-composers-from-diverse-ethnic-backgrounds-2/ If you enjoyed this – there's a playlist called New Research on the Free Thinking website where you can find discussions about everything from conserving fashion and putting it on display in museums to recording the accents found around Manchester, so do dip in. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03zws90

We start with a bit of background: An origin story to know how and why he got to an understanding of 'the meta'. - Personal life - Inspirations - Movies - Texts / books / information Nature / Nurture - Why did you read that book in the first place? - Why you? Why the book? The meta: The way Video game concept of Meta - Life is a game - Different evolutionary metas are like patch upgrades Meta Timelines and periods: - Erectus - Sapien - Eden - Crisis - Neolithic - Jesus Technology lead to individual hunting and feeling of possession of kill (tournament males, and accompanying hypergamy). Property as unadapted patch upgrade, lead to maladapted emotions “envy, greed”. Story of my journey with evolutionary biology/nutrition, owning health studio and fixing clients. Hardware (body), firmware (adapted emotions), software upgrades (the bible meta-truths - fixing broken emotions, Abraham sacrificing son, Jesus fixing envy, lust, greed). Key insights: natural, sexual and technological selection leads to tournament males, hypergamy, the need for the teachings of Jesus Amalgamated idea of current Meta given different evolutionary metas Jesus successfully integrated the tournament male. Religion is like Bro Science. "Feedback" oriented discovery. The Bible is basically a book of Bro Science Where do you get your teachings from Jesus? - Old Testament - Walter Wink (Jesus's third way) Notes from Aleks - Spiral Dynamics - The territorial imperative - The Japanese (bushido) - The Chinese (The Tao) - Stoics and the ancients Must Reads - The nurture assumption - Paleo Manifesto by John Durant - Walter Wink (Jesus's third way) - Red Pill Christianity - Forrest Maready Follow Trav here: https://twitter.com/Meta_Trav https://twitter.com/ParabolicTrav ____________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

Taking the Long View Dr. Roger Parrott pt 1 Each of us has a calling by God. Each of us has our own path we need to follow, designed by God. Each of us needs to understand that unique calling and strive to serve the Lord as best we can and to impact as many people with the Gospel as we can – no matter the calling. To help folks in fulfilling their calling, we often pursue higher education in the process. Our guest today is Dr. Roger Parrott, President of Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi, one of the fastest growing and most innovative colleges, serving over 5,000 students. Dr. Parrott was named among the 10 Most Visionary Education Leaders of 2021 by the Education Magazine. As one of the longest serving college presidents in America, Dr. Parrott is a fountain of knowledge for Christian parents and business leaders alike. He is also the author of a couple of books, the latest release is titled, https://amzn.to/3rHFGIa (“The Longview: Lasting Strategies for Rising Leaders.”) First question I always ask is this. Other than that very brief information I just provided, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Roger Parrott?” Dr. Parrott, there are a couple of things I would like to talk with you about today. The first question I have, we see a lot of push going on right now in trying to provide free college for those that want to pursue further education. The reason is because graduating students are entering the workforce with a ton of student debt.  What is the reason college tuition costs are so high? Where would the money come from to pay the expenses if you cannot obtain the tuition from students? You are not only one of the longest serving college presidents, but you were also one of the youngest when you first started at about the ripe old age of 34, correct? How did you handle the job of leading faculty members who probably had been at the university for decades and you were probably younger than most of them? Again, in your book, https://amzn.to/3rHFGIa (“The Longview: Lasting Strategies for Rising Leaders,”) why did you write this book at this time in your career? I loved the part where you said that Toyota had implemented a long term plan over 50 years ago what is now being realized today: they surpassed GM and other US automakers. You also referenced that employees with the Japanese automakers are there for the long haul.  We have shifted away from the “30 years with a pension and a gold watch” standard here in America. Is it too late for the culture of this country to shift and embrace the long term approach to anything? But if there are changes that need to be implemented, how do you recommend a new leader proceed that would motivate the unofficial chain of command to accept the changes. Belhaven University is one of only 35 schools in the world that has earned accreditation in all four of the primary Arts – Theatre, Music, Visual Art and Dance. In addition, other majors of Creative Writing, Graphic Design, Arts Administration and Film Production. These things can be obtained at many colleges or universities. What is the value of a Christian college education? Why should parents – and, of course – students, consider a Christian University? Some people do not understand what that accreditation really means. Can you explain that for us please? In your book, https://amzn.to/3rHFGIa (“The Longview: Lasting Strategies for Rising Leaders,” )you discuss how, over the last 30 years or so, the expectation of business leaders has been short term profitability instead of the long term growth. You reference things like the dot-com bubble and the Mc-mansions that fueled the housing crisis. This type of short term success driven policies has even influenced ministries and churches, correct? I would venture to say that God had the “long term view” in mind when it came to spreading the Gospel around the world in the lead up for the return of the Lord. I highly Support this podcast

Do not eat the California newt: The safest newt to handle is this toy newt. I really want one: Show transcript: Welcome to Strange Animals Podcast. I'm your host, Kate Shaw. This week's topic is a suggestion from Enzo, who wants to learn about newts “from least dangerous to most dangerous.” There are at least 60 species of newt known with more being discovered every year, but I'll do my best to hit the highlights. A newt is a type of salamander, specifically a semi-aquatic salamander in the subfamily Pleurodelinae. All newts are salamanders but not all salamanders are newts. Newts live throughout much of the northern hemisphere, including northern Africa and the Middle East, Eurasia, and North America. Female newts lay their eggs in freshwater, usually attaching them to vegetation or in little crevices in rocks. A few weeks later, the eggs hatch into larvae with external gills. The larvae are called tadpoles like frog larvae, and they mostly eat algae and tiny insects. They metamorphose over several months just like frogs do when they develop from tadpoles, but where frogs develop their hind legs first, newt tadpoles develop front legs first. The newt tadpole finally absorbs its gills and grows lungs instead, at which point it emerges from the water as an immature newt called an eft. Efts are juvenile newts and live exclusively on land, although like other amphibians they have to keep their skin damp so you'll usually find them in leaf litter and under rotting logs. Efts that live in North America return to the water when they become full adults, but most newts in other parts of the world stay on land the rest of their lives except during breeding season. Efts and adult newts eat worms, insects and insect larvae, slugs, frog tadpoles, and any other small animals they can catch. The Corsican brook salamander is a type of newt that lives on the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. It grows about five inches long at most, or 13 cm, and is brown or olive-green, sometimes with a mottled pattern of orange or red on its back. It's an exception to the rule that newts outside of North America usually live their adult lives on land. Not only does the Corsican brook salamander live in freshwater most of the time as an adult, it doesn't even have working lungs. It spends most of its time in fast-moving streams and rivers in higher elevations, where it absorbs oxygen from the water through its skin. As Enzo undoubtedly knows, many newts produce toxins. This is why it's not a good idea to handle a newt, or any other amphibian for that matter, unless you're absolutely certain it's a species that's not toxic. In most cases, a newt's toxin won't hurt you if it just touches your skin, but if it gets in a cut or if you have some of the toxin on your finger and then rub your eye or put your finger in your mouth, the toxin can make you really sick. Some newts are even deadly. The Corsican brook salamander we just talked about is not toxic, so we'll call it the least dangerous newt. The smooth newt, on the other hand, produces a relatively mild toxin. You'd have to actually eat a bunch of smooth newts to get sick from its toxins,

Then, we discuss Gudō Uchiyama and Zen Buddhism's resistance to New Buddhism and the Japanese state. We talk about High Treason Incident and its very interesting connection to Japanese railroads.

What is the point of an education? Is it to learn skills that will help you get ahead in the workplace, or is it to acquire knowledge and to think more deeply about your place in the world?In this episode we hear from an educator who thinks that the great books— Plato, Aquinas, Shakespeare for example— aren't just for a few well-off students at elite colleges, but for everybody. And he says encountering these thinkers when he was a poor immigrant teenager from the Dominican Republic literally changed his life.Roosevelt Montás is senior lecturer in American Studies and English at Columbia University. He is director of the Center for American Studies Freedom and Citizenship Program, which introduces low-income high school students to primary texts in moral and political thought, as well as seminars in American Studies including “Freedom and Citizenship in the United States.” From 2008 to 2018, he was director of Columbia's Center for the Core Curriculum. "There is a prevailing cultural attitude that liberal education— the study of literature and philosophy — is appropriate only to the elite," Roosevelt tells us. "That is a really pernicious idea." He argues that the students who benefit the most from the foundational wisdom in the "great books" come from poor and marginalized backgrounds.But liberal education is under assault today in academia. We find out why.Recommendation: Richard is watching the Anglo-Japanese Netflix TV series, "Giri / Haji", — duty/shame in Japanese— a thriller about a Tokyo detective scouring the London underworld to find his allegedly deceased brother.

This week, Benny looks at the four pillars of language - reading, writing, speaking, and listening - and talks about his approach to each of them. He also shares his favourite online resources for working on each skill. For beginner learners who want to speak a new language, Benny's advice is to focus almost all your efforts on speaking and listening. If speaking is your goal, it should be your main focus.Using graded materials such as podcasts is a great way to practise listening, and later, short texts like Twitter posts or online articles will help you make reading progress without getting overwhelmed. Writing is a low priority for most learners until the advanced stages, unless you need it for your job.To ask Benny a question, please email ask@languagehacking.com

When it comes to money, there are two approaches: love or fear.” That's what Ken Honda writes in his latest work, Happy Money: The Japanese Art of Making Peace with your Money. Ken's books on money have sold over 8 million copies worldwide. On today's show, we talk about how we can: Feel worthy of money Say Arigato (thank you) to money  How to make money work in your marriage Make peace with our childhood money experiences   Ken was 29 when he first “retired” to welcome his newborn daughter in the world. He had owned a consultant and accounting business, so successful it had allowed him to close up shop and spend his days with the apple of his eye. Little did he realize his “second” career, impacting millions by helping them heal their relationship with money, was about to begin. That essay was the start of what would become Happy Money, the book we discuss today.    Learn more about Ken on his website: https://kenhonda.com/ Buy tickets to Paul's upcoming show in Los Angeles here.  Rate and review Crazy Money here.  Follow Paul on Instagram here.

How should the American government take responsibility for past actions that have caused significant harm? On this episode of Now & Then, “Restitution & Reparations,” Heather Cox Richardson and Joanne Freeman discuss the tangled history of restitution, with a specific focus on how the federal government wronged certain classes of people. They talk through the early debates over slavery reparations, the late-19th century indemnity payments to Italian and Mexican victims of vigilante violence, and the long reckoning over the damage caused by Japanese internment during World War II. How does democracy benefit from governmental acknowledgment of wrong? How can we measure pain in morality or money? And how can these historical debates inform the current controversy over restitution for families separated from their children at the Southern border?  Join CAFE Insider to listen to “Backstage,” where Heather and Joanne chat each week about the anecdotes and ideas that formed the episode.
