Today's guest is molecular biologist Dr. Alina Chan, a fellow at the Broad Institute and co-author of Viral: The Search for the Origin of Covid-19. She has been one of the most prominent commentators on the origins of COVID-19 and has attracted controversy for encouraging more serious consideration of the possibility that the pandemic began through an accident at a virology lab. She has been credited for changing the discussion about the issue and causing scientists and the media to pay more attention to the possibility of a lab accident than they were previously. In this episode we discuss:- The various possible ways the pandemic could have begun and why "lab leak" and "natural origin" can be somewhat misleading terms- How the politicization of the debate has gotten in the way of having a serious discussion about the facts, since the right is committed to the lab hypothesis and the left does not want to consider a hypothesis that the right is so committed to- What the actual evidence we currently have is (not much)- How investigations into COVID-19's origins have been compromised- What the stakes of finding the truth are, and how people's worldviews and narratives are threatened by conclusions they don't like- What a "lab accident" would look like and why it could easily come from well-intentioned research intending to stop pandemics, rather than nefarious attempts to manufacture a bioweaponThe articles in the Los Angeles Times and Science suggesting that the virus is unlikely to have been released from a lab are here and here. Nathan's own article on the origins of COVID-19 is here.

The Republic of the Marshall Islands is a speck of a country in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Population 60,000. But it has an outsized legacy as the place where the US military exploded dozens of nuclear weapons in the 40s and 50s, and brushed over the danger to local populations. For decades the Marshall Islands has been fighting for the US to fully recognize the devastating health and environmental impacts from all those nuclear tests, without much success. But skip forward to a recent congressional hearing and something seemed to shift — something that starts with C and ends with A, and rhymes with ‘pivot to Asia.'

Leading the Customer Experience: How to Chart a Course and Deliver Outstanding Results by Brad Cleveland About the Book: Many organizations and leaders struggle to respond effectively to fast-evolving customer expectations driven by innovations in products, services, and technologies such as AI and mobile. Failing to build the necessary strategy, culture, and processes, they suffer from high costs, dissatisfied customers, and brand damage. The mandate to get customer experience right is real and urgent. Leading the Customer Experience is a guide to shaping experiences that win loyalty and deliver outstanding business results. It provides a bold, step-by-step approach that will get you and your team pointed in the right direction. And equipped to make sound decisions along the way. Leading the Customer Experience is easy to understand and imminently practical. It is based on the author's extensive experience both as a founding partner of one of the world's most influential customer management organizations, and his work with B2B and B2C organizations in the private and public sectors. The author's down-to-earth explanations cut through jargon and clutter, while stories and examples bring important principles to life. Leading the Customer Experience is relatable to anyone leading, managing, or aspiring to better understand the customer experience. About the Author: Brad Cleveland is known globally as one of today's foremost experts in customer strategy and management. A sought-after consultant and speaker, he has worked in 45 of the 50 U.S. states and over 60 countries, and his clients have included many of today's service leaders like Apple, American Express, and AT&T (and those are just some of the A's on his client list). He's also advised governments in the United States, Australia, and Canada. Brad's books and articles have been translated into over a dozen languages, and he is an instructor for LinkedIn Learning with featured courses on customer strategy and management, customer service leadership, and customer experience leadership.

Magazine, Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, CNN Money, the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, and the New York Times, as well as on major television networks (PBS, CNBC, Fox, MSNBC, and others), and NPR's All Things Considered.

Biden is out with a couple of doses of honesty that are going to be really challenging for his buds in the Democrat Party. Joe Biden in one story here says that he doesn't think Hillary knew why she was running for president. “Vice President Biden believes Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in part because she never figured why she was running for the nation's highest office. ‘I don't think she ever really figured it out,' Biden told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Thursday. ‘And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.'” If you're confused by this, just hang in. I'm gonna close the loop here and make it all make sense for you. There's nobody better at translating these people than I am, so just be patient. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2016/12/23/biden_trashes_hillary_and_democrats/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

The Search Warrant still hasn't been executed and Baldwin is still in possession of his phone. On January 7, 2022, the Los Angeles Times and other outlets reported statements by the Santa Fe Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney saying that they are still working to execute the search warrant and obtain Alec Baldwin's phone. Not to be outdone Alec Baldwin took to Instagram to say that all reports that he hasn't complied with the search warrant are lies and he fully intends to comply….later. I can't wait to hear what you think of this.  Key Take-Aways? Alec Baldwin's cellphone has not to be taken by Santa Fe Police subject to their Search Warrant and reports that he hasn't turned over his phone are true. Alec Baldwin's legal team can ensure that Law Enforcement properly executes any Search Warrant, but also he can comply and then fight the evidence obtained in court later.  Baldwin will not stop talking about this case and it isn't helping him. What happens next?  The Search Warrant will be executed in New York as the investigation continues. There may or may not be criminal charges in this case.

In this episode, we talk with Anne Michaud, Author of "Why They Stay" As a leading political reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Anne Michaud covered Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign, Anthony Weiner's 2005 mayoral bid, and Eliot Spitzer's rise and fall as New York's governor from 2006 to 2008. Few folks have had the front row seat to the spectacular fall from grace of these politicians and the women who endured the cataclysm with them. Which got her wondering--as so many of us have--why did most of these women stick it out--or stay for as long as they did? Were they simply doing the Stand By Your Man blues, or did they have other motivations? Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agenda of Eight Political Wives is the result of her musings and her deeply researched and fascinating analysis. Anne chose to look at eight couples and explore the similarities between them -- how the women responded to the crisis and its aftermath. These women made bold decisions that revealed their own agendas.  · Hillary & Bill Clinton: One masterful decision launched her political career · Jackie & John F. Kennedy: Coping in bed and all the way to the bank · Eleanor & Franklin D. Roosevelt: A lifeless marriage sparks a social champion · Marion Stein & Jeremy Thorpe: Riding out British scandal to provide for her sons · Wendy & David Vitter: Married to the Party versus married to a man · Silda Wall & Elliot Spitzer: Real-life drama spawns TV show The Good Wife · Huma Abedin & Anthony Weiner: How to win against a man and the Media · Melania & Donald Trump: A foreigner's desire to live the American dream Anne found some interesting correlations between all of them and Elizabeth Woodville, the "White Queen" of English history. A widow, she married Edward IV for love, endured his promiscuity to stay and wield power, and ultimately, outlasted him to build the Tudor legacy through engineering her daughter's marriage to Edward's successor. Anne looked at 5 factors in her books­--how deeply are these women committed to being the family emotional caretaker, how patriarchal values drive their actions, how motivated are they about building a family legacy, the degree to which financial and emotional security drives their actions, and do they have a sense of patriotism that inspires them to overlook the misdeeds of their husband for the greater good. She assigned each a "White Queen Quotient" measured against Woodville's iconic role as the ultimate political spouse in the face of scandalous male behavior. While we as spectators can only speculate about what drives them, Why They Stay makes a great case for what causes each of these women to play out their roles as stay-beyond-the-embarrassment wives. If Hillary Clinton had left her marriage, she might only be known as the spurned wife of a retired politician. Instead, she became the first woman to run for U.S. president on a major party ticket, a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State. These political wives aren't powerless pawns. They are shrewder than you expect. Why They Stay pulls back the curtain to reveal why women throughout history stand by their man...for better and for worse. In addition to her reportage at the Wall Street Journal, Anne previously wrote a nationally syndicated op-ed column for Newsday from 2008 to 2018. She has won more than 25 writing and reporting awards and has twice been named "Columnist of the Year," by the New York News Publishers Association and the New York State Associated Press Association. Her work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Newsweek, BusinessWeek.com, Crain's NY Business, Cincinnati Magazine and more. Anne has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show, NY1's Reporters' Roundtable, and Fox 5 News WNYW....

Mr. Maltin discusses his new book, "Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood". The interview covers his many interactions with both legendary and lesser known entertainment figures. We also discuss his early days as a critic & interviewer along with his tenure teaching USC's popular film studies course. This is definitely a conversation that any film lover will enjoy. "Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood" is available wherever books are sold from GoodKnight Books. Leonard Maltin is one of the most recognized and respected film critics of our time. He spent 30 years on the hit television show Entertainment Tonight and appears regularly on Turner Classic Movies. An established author, he is best known for his annual paperback reference, Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide.

Leonard's other books include Hooked on Hollywood, The Best 151 Movies You've Never Seen, The Disney Films, Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons, The Great American Broadcast: A Celebration of Radio's Golden Age, The Great Movie Comedians, Movie Comedy Teams, The Art of the Cinematographer, Selected Short Subjects and (as co-author) The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang. Leonard has been teaching at the USC School of Cinematic Arts for the last 23 years. His popular class screens new films prior to their release, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. This direct access to top talent has proven to be invaluable in his students' own filmmaking endeavors. As an expert and host, he is frequently seen on news programs and documentaries. Leonard is also a prolific freelance writer whose articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, Smithsonian, TV Guide, Esquire, The Village Voice and American Film. He was the film critic for Playboy magazine for six years. Additionally, Leonard frequently lectures on film and was a member of the faculty of New York City's New School for Social Research for nine years. He served as Guest Curator at the Museum of Modern Art film department in New York on two separate occasions. Leonard created, hosted and co-produced the popular Walt Disney Treasures DVD series and appeared on Warner Home Video's Night at the Movies features.

He also has received awards and citations from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, American Society of Cinematographers, Anthology Film Archives, The Society of Cinephiles, San Diego Comic-Con International, and the Telluride Film Festival. In 1997 he was made a voting member of the National Film Registry, which selects 25 landmark American films every year.

Originally called “Glenwood”, Larchmont Boulevard received its current name around 1912. In 1921, the Los Angeles Times announced a new business district on Larchmont consisting of 30 stores, developed by Julius LaBonte and Charles Ramson. At that time, there was an explosion in population occurring in the area – and in Los Angeles in general – and this noted commercial corridor would support the needs of adjacent residential developments. In fact, Larchmont was planned as the first neighborhood shopping center in Los Angeles. The late LA City Councilmember, Tom LaBonge, prioritized preserving the “village atmosphere” of the Boulevard (in 1992) as he recognized it as the “physical and social, as well as retail, center for the surrounding neighborhoods of Larchmont, Hancock Park and Windsor Square. Celebrating 100 years serving as the center of this vibrant community, CivitasLA is joined by Larchmont civic leaders, and local stakeholders – Patty Lombard, Co-Publisher of the Larchmont Buzz; Joanna Vernetti of Vernetti Restaurant; and Todd Warner of Tailwaggers as we discuss the evolution of the boulevard (and community); the changing nature of retail and its impact on maintaining the “village atmosphere” that it's been known for.

But she didn't expect to be caught in the middle of an insurrection.Today, Sarah tells us about the day a mob of pro-Trump extremists stormed the Capitol, and she shares never-before-heard interviews with the Congress members who sheltered with her for hours. It's a glimpse into the minds of our lawmakers as they worried for their lives while chaos invaded the seat of American democracy.More reading:I'm in a roomful of people ‘panicked that I might inadvertently give away their location'Jan. 6 committee prepares to go public as findings mountColumn: The Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was bad.

We are back for a new year of amazing stories and I can't wait for all the conversations taking place this year on Open Space Radio! To kick off 2022, I'm thrilled to welcome someone who is making some big waves in the outdoor recreation industry. Dani Reyes-Acosta is a mountain athlete and storyteller rewriting the narrative of who plays outside and how we build community with others on this planet. Originally from Southern California, she has traveled through Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Andorra, Canada and the U.S. building her mountain craft since 2014, when she graduated from corporate life with a one-way ticket to South America. A splitboarder, rock climber, mountain runner, and waterwoman, she has been featured in the Washington Post, She Explores, Women on the Road, the Los Angeles Times and regional publications throughout the American West. Currently partnered with Protect Our Winters, Salomon, Suunto, Trail Butter, Anon Optics and Athletic Brewing, her mission is to inspire individual action and collective communion through self-care and self-determination found in the outdoors. She also works very closely with Latino Outdoors, whose vision is a world where all Latino communities enjoy nature as a safe, inclusive and welcoming place – a world where the outdoors is a place to share and celebrate stories, knowledge and culture, while growing leadership and an active community of Latino outdoor users, mentors and stewards. Dani's goal as a mountain athlete is to find the limits of her possible, searching for high peaks and ski lines that tell the story of Mother Earth's most impacted places. Tune in to the episode below to learn more about Dani, how her love for the outdoors began, and the mission she is on as an athlete and storyteller exploring the human experience. You'll also learn: How has access to the outdoors has personally played a role in Dani's life. Why human-centered design is so critical when thinking of public spaces. The importance of being a responsible steward of the land and how local park and recreation professionals can provide educational opportunities around environmental stewardship. How park and recreation professionals can support both tourism and their local community members in their parks and programs. How we can use our power to create space for those who have historically been underrepresented or left out of outdoor recreation conversations. What Dani's most proud of thus far in her work, and much more! Related Links: Follow Dani on Instagram Connect with Dani on LinkedIn Dani's website Protect Our Winters Latino Outdoors

Making decisions about how to eat healthier shouldn't be complicated or overwhelming. Glenn Livingston addresses common issues with establishing healthier eating habits and the power of autonomy to learn what approach to food works for you!    In this episode, Cathy and Glenn discuss:  Glenn's own journey with food and alpha wolf approach to eating Drawing clear lines between healthy and unhealthy eating behaviors  Acknowledging how your inner reptilian brain impacts eating  Examples of rules for eating healthier and eliminating the need for willpower  Committing with perfection while forgiving yourself with dignity vs. guilt and shame   Allowing yourself to learn something with every attempt, adjust and keep going    Memorable Quotes: “I've discovered that autonomy is a very big part of food addiction.Whereas if they think for themselves, what is one simple rule that I can implement? That would make a really big difference that is not going to be too burdensome.”   “If you want to eliminate the need for willpower, you could accomplish the same thing by saying I will only ever have chocolate on Saturdays and Sundays…that way your decisions are made…and you're not sweating out the willpower decisions all day long.”  Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's)  previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page.  You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.  Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.   Mentioned In This Episode: Never Binge Again Website:  https://www.neverbingeagain.com/ Never Binge Again Book: https://www.amazon.com/Never-Binge-Again-Permanently-Overeating/dp/151516294X/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=     Links to resources: Health Coach Group Website https://www.thehealthcoachgroup.com/

On this episode, I am joined by the twin team of Cole and Justin, better known as The Oscar Expert and Brother Bro, who return to the AwardsWatch Oscar Podcast to talk about the Screen Actors Guild and offer our predictions. We hit all categories and dive into both likely nominations, weird SAG-only possibilities (like Viola Davis and Sandra Bullock in The Unforgivable) and break down how many nominations Belfast and The Power of the Dog can score. Each stand a chance to to get in 3 or even 4 individual actors plus the SAG Cast category. The all-time record still stands at 5 nominations for a single film and we could see it happen once, or even twice, this year. West Side Story is a big part of the conversation, which was recorded on December 26, because at the time no screeners, digital or physical, had been sent to the SAG nominating committee for voting. As of this writing, digital screeners have now reached the 2000-2500 voters but is it too late? Voting opened on December 6 ends on January 9 and many might have already submitted their picks, deciding not to wait on 20th Century/Disney to drop those screeners. Our predictions for WSS reflect that here. Support for this podcast comes from Amazon Studios, presenting Being the Ricardos. Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear, and cultural taboos in Academy Award-winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin's behind-the-scenes drama Being the Ricardos.  A revealing glimpse of the couple's complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers' room, onto the soundstage, and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy.  Featuring J.K. Simmons, Nina Arianda, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, Jake Lacy, Linda Lavin, Ronny Cox, and John Rubinstein. Now nominated for three Critics Choice Awards for Best Original Screenplay Aaron Sorkin, Best Actress Nicole Kidman, and Best Supporting Actor J.K. Simmons. Variety raves the film is “intoxicating; a beautiful illustration of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz." Being the Ricardos is streaming now on Prime Video. Support for this podcast also comes from Amazon Studios' The Tender Bar, which tells the story of J.R. (Tye Sheridan), a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures.  As the boy's determined mother (Lily Rabe) struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father (Christopher Lloyd) — J.R. begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams — with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie's bar.  The Tender Bar is based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer. The Los Angeles Times calls the film “a nostalgic coming-of-age drama lovingly directed by George Clooney... Affleck has never been better." The Tender Bar is in theaters now and streaming January 7 on Prime Video. This podcast runs 1h 20m with music and sponsorship content.

Almost immediately it began to receive critical attention as one of his entries was selected to be in the 2005 food anthology Best Food Writing.

I have followed Zack Whitford on Instagram for as long as I can remember, in fact I think he was one of the first I followed after joining Instagram. You know how you have photographers whose work you like because it makes you feel an emotion, just makes you smile? Well, Zack is one of those photographers whose work speaks to me on multiple levels. His images span from travel and humanitarian, to rock stars and red carpets, and all of it, every single image, makes me stop. For some, I just love the moment he's captured, while for others I find myself dissecting the angle, the light, and the subject on a deeper level. As a music photographer, my first introduction to Zack was his work as the tour photographer for Aerosmith. His dad is Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford, and I'd say that Zack's talent with a camera is equal to that of his dad's with a guitar. Whether the creativity gene is an inherited trait or not, Zack has it. If you stop after calling Zack a music photographer then you've missed the point. Zack is a documentary, commercial, event & music photographer. His website has portfolios for Street, Music, Portrait, and Lifestyle and his work has been seen in Vanity Fair, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Vogue, Rolling Stone, GQ, Billboard Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, and People Magazine to name a few. There is a quote in his bio, where he is talking about training to be a stage actor when he was younger. His acting teacher said something that, looking back now, seemingly changed his life. "As actors, you are investigators of humanity" The way Zack tells it, that statement made him realize that he had a fascination with "seeking out the contrasting emotional moments that occur within ourselves, and between one another: The monumental disquiet that we work so diligently to mask, and the allure of human triumph". Read that again... "The monumental disquiet that we work so diligently to mask, and the allure of human triumph". Wow. I love that. That. Is. Deep. Now, contrast that with an interview I found of Zack with HuffPost where he says at one point " Most people love dogs. I'm not really interested in people who don't like dogs". I agree with him on that! The problem, from a podcast point-of-view, when setting up an episode with someone like Zack is picking the photo we break-down. It wasn't easy but, luckily, Zack was patient with me. Of the image we settled on, Zack said "that's one of my personal favorites, and the story behind it is good", so as I am writing this I am really looking forward to sitting down and chatting with L.A.based photographer Zack Whitford. Join photographer Zack Whitford and me as we discuss his life as tour photographer, his humanitarian work, and his beautiful black & white image of Steven Tyler and Amiee Preston in the rain, on this Behind the Shot.

Do you ever feel like you need a break from the constant go, go, go? We know we do. And what's better than taking a break to do nothing? It sounds counterproductive, but when was the last time you just sat around and let your mind wander? Probably not recently, if at all. We're so busy nowadays that taking a moment for ourselves is a rarity. But it's so important. So on this episode, we are joined by Jessie Kanzer to discuss her new book, The Art of Doing Nothing, what that actually entails, how her book parallels the “Great Resignation”, the pandemic, and share some mindset tips to combat overwhelm. You are going to end this episode with a new mindset and the inspiration to get you out of that rut you're in! Get ready to relax and de-stress! Jessie Kanzer was born in the former soviet union. She set out on a spiritual search after losing everything and starting over. Traveled to various countries at eight years old before coming to the United States. She bottled up and buried emotions at an early age. This soon manifested into an eating disorder. She discusses how she tried to change and reinvent herself and it didn't work. She pushed on and graduated from college in an area she could have cared less about, but Summa Cume Laude of course.  Her turning point…a major car accident. She picked up the Tao Te Ching from her bedside table. An ancient Chinese philosophy and reinvented herself following the car accident.  Jessie discusses how hitting rock bottom is an opportunity to begin again. She tells her story, invites us to read her book, and will leave you feeling hopeful and inspired to take on that next challenge or to simply navigate this chaotic time we all find ourselves in.  Discussed in this episode: The Great Resignation. How her book is helping people through a period of major change in their lives. What is the Tao Te Ching? Jessie puts this book into perspective and makes it relevant to moms in the modern-day who need help with the day-to-day overwhelm and stress.  Mindset shift best practices.  Jessie's childhood in the Soviet Union and the parallel to the hustle culture we live in today.  The lessons the pandemic has taught us. Leveling up and accomplishing goals. How to change from within to effect change in society.  How Jessie's new book fits the mold of Christianity and other religions.  We are bringing various angles, ideas, and takeaways to this week's episode. We want to hear from you! Tell us what you liked, didn't like, or maybe what you would like us to continue in a future episode.

Did you know that 42% of adults in America are obese? And that overeating and binge eating is a major contributor to obesity.  If we want to get our health back on track, we must get a handle on our eating, and that's why I'm thrilled to have as my next guest, Dr. Glenn Livingston, a veteran psychologist, and longtime CEO of a multi-million-dollar consulting firm that has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. His works have been published in major periodicals such as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Chicago Sun Times. Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and food-obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food. In this interview, you will learn how certain food companies are taking the nutrition out of the food and putting the money behind the packaging, therefore making the food more appealing.  You will also learn which emotions trigger cravings for what types of food.  This is a very informative interview that will leave the viewer and/or listener with the strategies necessary to stop overeating and binge eating once and for all.

Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, and Jim Rainey, an award-winning reporter with the Los Angeles Times, spoke with hometown hero Timothy Egan in March of 2019 about the importance of investigative journalism and the path forward for media in this political era. These veteran journalists discuss how investigative reporting has changed over time, and what audiences expect and demand from the media today. They share challenges that reporters face when reporting from the field. “We allowed ourselves to become mysterious; as a result, people saw us as elites in an ivory tower,” Dean Baquet says. Jim Rainey agrees, adding, “When we go out now, it's not just what we write. It's how we conduct ourselves. How empathetic we are. And so—I think, correctly—we have a lot to prove.” These reflections set the tone for a lively conversation about transparency, credibility, and truth. With wit and honesty, they shine a spotlight on what the media can and should do better in an era of disinformation. They look to the future of newspapers: from print journalism (here to stay, they insist) and paid content, to podcasts and interactive digital storytelling. They also discuss ways in which journalists—young and old—mentor each other today.

Senate Unanimously Passes Uyghur Forced Labor Bill https://dailycaller.com/2021/12/16/senate-passes-uyghur-forced-labor-bill-marco-rubio/ After a series of false starts and delays, the Senate passed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act by voice vote Thursday. The bill, sponsored by Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, targets slave labor in Xinjiang and surrounding provinces, where China is conducting a genocide of the Uyghur people. It passedthe House by voice vote Tuesday and is expected to be signed into law by President Joe Biden. The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act creates a “rebuttable presumption” that goods produced in Xinjiang or by certain listed Chinese business entities are produced by the forced labor of Uyghurs or other ethnic minorities. Companies may continue to import products from Xinjiang if they provide “clear and convincing evidence” to the Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection that their supply chains do not include forced labor. The bill's passage unlocks three votes to confirm Biden nominees to key State Department positions. Rubio and Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy agreed that the Republican would drop his objections to Nicholas Burns, nominated to be Ambassador to China, Ramin Toloui, nominated to be Assistant Secretary of State, and Rashad Hussain, nominated to be Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, in exchange for Murphy's lack of objection to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. Glenn Loury Says America is Not White Supremacist Play audio: 0:00-1:02 Why are people flocking here from all over the world? Because it's so oppressive and white supremacist? Supreme Court Sends Texas Heartbeat Law Back to Appeals Court A U.S. Supreme Court decision Thursday dealt another blow to the Texas abortion industry by sending its lawsuit against the state heartbeat law back to a federal appeals court that previously allowed the legislation to go into effect. The Associated Press reports the pro-abortion groups suing to overturn the pro-life law wanted the justices to send their lawsuit back to U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who blocked the law in October. On Thursday, however, Justice Neil Gorsuch signed an order sending the case to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals instead, according to the report. Back in October, the Fifth Circuit rejected Pitman's ruling just a few days after he issued it and allowed the law to go into effect again. Pro-life leaders estimate that the heartbeat law, which bans abortions once an unborn baby's heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, has saved thousands of babies' lives since it went into effect Sept. 1. The law includes a unique private enforcement mechanism that allows private individuals to sue abortionists and those who “aid and abet” in abortions in violation of the law. It is this provision that has been the main focus of the legal dispute thus far. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court threw out a lawsuit from President Joe Biden and rejected the Texas pro-abortion groups' request to temporarily block the law while their legal challenge continues through the courts. While the high court ruled that the Texas abortion businesses may continue with their lawsuit, it also watered down their case by allowing them to sue state licensing officials but not the state judges and clerks who are charged with handling lawsuits spurred by the law. Now, the Supreme Court is sending the case back to the Fifth Circuit for consideration, and abortion activists are losing hope — good news for the future of unborn babies in Texas. “The Supreme Court left only a small sliver of our case intact, and it's clear that this part of the case will not block vigilante lawsuits from being filed,” Marc Hearron, a lawyer with the Center for Reproductive Rights, told the AP. “It's also clear that Texas is determined to stop the plaintiffs from getting any relief in even the sliver of the case that is left.” Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law, said he also was “stunned” that the Supreme Court allowed the law to remain in effect even though it violates Roe v. Wade. “The court's refusal to block the blatantly unconstitutional Texas law is also a strong signal that it is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Chemerinsky wrote this week at the Los Angeles Times. Texas abortion businesses are admitting a likely defeat as well. They essentially have no way to stop Texas citizens and pro-life groups from filing lawsuits against them, abortionists and abortion center staff who help abort unborn babies in violation the law. And if the law remains in effect much longer, many Texas abortion businesses may close. According to the Texas Tribune: Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman's Health, which operates four clinics in Texas and is the lead plaintiff in the providers' lawsuit, warned last week that the current volume of services is not enough to keep clinics open in the long term. “Staying open is not sustainable if this ban stays in effect much longer,” Hagstrom Miller said. “We are grateful for the donors and foundations and folks who have been supporting us in the interim … but the future looks bleak if we can't get some justice here.” Ultimately, the abortion businesses' legal challenge appears to be “doomed,” the report concluded. And that's great news for unborn babies. A new study found that, in just the first month of the law, abortions in Texas went down 50 percent. Since then, Texas abortion facility directors have reported even bigger drops in their abortion numbers, as high as 80 percent compared to the previous year, according to the Texas Tribune. The heartbeat law has the potential to save tens of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year. In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.

"Thank you for your fervent prayers throughout the past two months. We hope to provide more information as we are able." Haiti National Police Spokesman Gary Desrosiers also confirmed to NBC News that the hostages had been found safe, but would not say where they had been taken. Seventeen people working with the group were kidnapped in October by the 400 Mawozo gang, which controls the Ganthier commune in the suburb of Port-au-Prince where the missionaries were taken. Christian Aid Ministries had previously said that those who were kidnapped were sixteen U.S citizens and one Canadian citizen — six men, six women, and five children. The missionaries were returning from an orphanage, an hour and a half from Christian Aid Ministries Haiti base and often visited by their staff, when they were taken. The group, based in Millersburg, Ohio, repeatedly called for supporters to fast and pray for the safe release of the hostages, at one point earlier this month encouraging Christians to fast for three days.

We are approaching our second winter of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have a lot more awareness about how our mental health affects our work and how we function in society. In the spring of 2020, adults in the U.S. were three times as likely to suffer depression or anxiety as they were the year before. While getting treatment can be expensive, the costs of untreated mental illness are often higher. “Untreated or undertreated mental health conditions related to increased absenteeism in the workplace, what they call presenteeism, which is being present, but lower productivity, and also higher turnover rates — business should be concerned about this because it does affect their bottom line,” said Judy Bass, associate professor in the department of mental health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Bass said that pre-pandemic, those costs were pegged at $2 billion annually. On the show today, we’ll discuss the economic costs of mental illness and the benefits of investing more in mental health care. In the News Fix, we highlight a new report that warns of an emerging mental health crisis among young people in America. Then we’ll hear from a listener who makes us smart about the pronunciation of “omicron,” and YouTube’s CEO answers the “Make Me Smart” question. Here’s everything we talked about today: “World Mental Health Day: an opportunity to kick-start a massive scale-up in investment in mental health” from the World Health Organization “Surgeon general warns of emerging youth mental health crisis in rare public advisory” from The Los Angeles Times “U.S. Surgeon General Issues Advisory on Youth Mental Health Crisis Further Exposed by COVID-19 Pandemic” from the Department of Health and Human Services “However You Pronounce ‘Omicron,' You're Probably Saying It Wrong” from The Wall Street Journal “YouTube makes the case for its ‘creative economy'” from “Marketplace Tech” If you or someone you know may be considering suicide, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 at 1-800-237-8255.
