I am super excited for today's episode as I have special guest Abigail Balfe. Abigail is a Brighton-based writer, illustrator and Emmy Award winning creative producer. Abigail is an author and has just had her first book published. It's called 'A Different Sort of Normal' and it documents how Abigail didn't realise she was autistic until she was an adult. The book includes funny stories including her love of cats, fear of toilets, and an amusing story featuring her dad and a tub of ice cream. There are also more serious ones: a very difficult experience at a swimming pool, and her experience of navigating the overwhelming stimuli of a crowded train. Along the way, there is also crucial information about autism, including commonly held misconceptions. She also includes tips to help readers navigate key milestones – attending ‘big school', puberty, and making friends – especially if you do differ from the ‘norm' around you. I reached out to her to ask if she might like to come on my podcast to chat a little more about her book! We chat about: Abigail's Autism diagnosis and the process / journey behind it Diagnosis of Autism in women and late diagnosis Abigail's experience of Masking as an Autistic person Abigail's career as a Creative Producer, Author and Illustrator! Abigail's studies at Cambridge School of Art (MA Children's Book Illustration course) and we chat about how her book came about as a result of her final MA uni project. How Abigail went about creating her book and how she juggled being both the Author and Illustrator as well as a chat about doing book PR Abigails special interests and hobbies and her favourite sensory / fidget items! Where you can buy her fab book from!

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 11th, 2021. You might want to send Italy a congratulations. That country announced it's reached its goal of 80% of the population over 12 being fully vaccinated. That amounts to 43 million people out of 60 million. However, a lot of people hit the streets not to celebrate, but to protest vaccine passports. Many of these gatherings turned into violent riots. A comprehensive CBS News poll shows that most Americans are still worried about the pandemic with winter on the way, and a bit pessimistic in saying things are going to get worse in the coming months, not better. As for parents of young children, it's split down the middle in terms of will they get their children vaccinated. Masking for kids in school does seem to have majority support. About half feel the information they hear from America's health leaders has been confusing. The deadline is right around the corner and at the moment, hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members are still unvaccinated. Most of those deadlines are in November and December. Different branches are delivering different levels of compliance. For instance 90% of the active-duty Navy is fully immunized while only 72% of active-duty Marines are. The news is usually bad enough without getting it completely wrong. The New York Times issued a correction after their health and science reporter said 900,000 children have been hospitalized in the US with Covid-19. Not even a little bit close. The actual figure is a 63,000. The piece also got actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark wrong. Wait, we're not done. She also got the timing of an FDA meeting on authorizing the Pfizer vaccine for kids wrong. Typically cautious and often a full-on buzzkill about holidays, Dr. Anthony Fauci says don't worry about trick or treating outdoors this Halloween. While he says we shouldn't declare premature victory and he still wants more people vaccinated who are eligible, Fauci did note that cases are dropping. Right now, there are about 95,000 new cases a day. Fauci said when it drops to less than 10,000 a day, we can start dropping restrictions like masking indoors...which will make it much easier to bob for apples. In the United States cases were down 20%, deaths are down 14%, and hospitalizations are down 21% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,820,727 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 20%, North Dakota 18%, Pennsylvania 15%. Minnesota 13%. And Montana 8%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Bethel Census Area, AK. Stark, ND. Lewis, KY. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. Whitley, KY. Knox, IN. Clay, TX. Custer, MT. McCreary, MT. And Big Horn, WY. There have been at least 712,993 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont unchanged at 69.8%, Connecticut unchanged at 69.2%, and Rhode Island unchanged at 69%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia unchanged at 40.6%, and Wyoming and Idaho at 42.2%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 56.2%. The five countries with biggest 24-hour increases in the number of fully vaccinated people: St. Lucia and Kosovo up 2%. And Australia, Sri Lanka, and Finland 1%. Globally, cases were down 14% and deaths were down 16% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending up since October 5. The number of active cases around the world has now dropped below 18 million, at 17,987,905. The five countries with the... See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Masking in schools is returning to Rural Minnesota.

(Oct 5, 2021) Child care providers are pushing back against a rule by Gov. Hochul requiring toddlers to be masked all day while in their care. They say masking very young children is impractical, unsanitary, and won't help slow the spread of anything. Also: A mother and son from Watertown are charged with helping to steal House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laptop during the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in January.
Sophie Adamkiewicz was born in Poland, but was brought up in Germany after her mother emigrated there when the Berlin wall fell, and she says that she has felt like an outsider all her life. At the time of our rerecording she was living in Ireland, but was about to move to London. She is 37, and is currently self-diagnosed and on the waiting list for her autism and ADHD assessments. She has worked in freelance video and CGI production, as a producer at a Fortune 500 company and been Head of Studio. She is now a producer at a large production agency. In our conversation we talk about ➡ Coming to terms with being autistic ➡ Communication difficulties across neurotypes, and feeling out of place everywhere ➡ Masking and stimming ➡ The intersection of autism and her transition as a trans woman ➡ and learning to acknowledge and accept our limitations Squarepeg is a podcast in which neurodivergent women, and trans and nonbinary people, explore navigating a neurotypical world and share their insights, challenges and successes. I hope that these conversations will be inspiring and thought provoking, open you up to new ways of thinking about being neurodivergent, and help you feel more connected to a worldwide community of people with similar experiences. I'm Amy Richards, and after being diagnosed autistic at the age of 37 I'm now on a mission to learn more about different perspectives and issues around being a neurodivergent adult in a world that feels like it doesn't quite fit.

Eric Winter, attorney with Prince Law Offices, rejoins the Dom Giordano Program for an update on his push back against the Governor Wolf masking mandate for Pennsylvania schools. Winter explains that this order is ‘bad governance,' explaining how it was both poorly written and not thought out. Winter points out the hypocrisies in the contract, and things school districts have told parents after receiving the state-wide mandate. Also, Winter discusses the legality of school boards defying the masking order after the Department of Education threatened personal liability for not following the edict.

Lebanon County DA Pier Hess Graf joins the Dom Giordano Program after issuing a press release noting that, after receiving countless inquiries from parents, that her office will not authorize an arrest, criminal citation, or criminal consequence for a parent's refusal to mask their child. DA Hess Graf explains that her office has a large online and social media presence, and has been inundated with questions from parents following Governor Wolf's masking mandate. Instead of responding to each constituent, which she wishes she could, she instead decided to issue a blanket release quelling the concerns of parents in her county. Hess Graf explains the legality of Governor Wolf's edict, and explains the supposed penalties and consequences parents could face.

President Pro Tempore of the Pennsylvania Senate Jake Corman returns to the Dom Giordano Program after filing suit against the State over the Governor's powers in setting forth a masking mandate. The lawsuit argues that Alison Beam, the acting Health Secretary after Rachel Levine left for a Federal position, does not have the authority to issue the mandate. The order was a reversal of direction for the Wolf administration, as up until this point they have generally left decision up to local school districts. Corman explains why he has decided to join with Representative Jesse Topper and other parents to sue, and tells what he hopes to accomplish once all is said and done.

It's been an interesting couple of weeks in the Whitmore Household. School starts with all the chaos that ensues as we moved from one schedule to five distinctly separate schedule. At the best of times it's a sprint and worst its running through the forest at night with your eyes closed. And then the special chaos arrived. Called to school on day 4 to pick up my daughter because she wasn't feeling well. Normal year no big deal This year… tested… and positive for Covid. 3 days after my body started to crash.. and my positive test soon followed. What followed has made for a discombobulated and interesting week. So as I sit her on my 7th.. or is it 8th day.. locked in my bedroom I may sound a little preachy today… take it for what its worth.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/StriveSeekFind)

Makary, who does not know much about the efficacy of the drug in treating the virus, does note that the drug has a history of treating parasitic infections in humans in the past. Then, Makary and Giordano discuss the proponent of a vaccination booster, discussing both the efficacy and the arbitrary deadline that has sent people scrambling to meet. In addition, Giordano asks for Makary's thoughts on the new masking edict set forth by the Wolf administration.

Lou Barletta, former congressman and candidate for Pennsylvania Governor, joins the Dom Giordano Program for a discussion about Governor Tom Wolf's decision to issue a masking mandate for Pennsylvania schools. First, Giordano and Barletta discuss the Biden administration handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the proposition of a large amount of refugees settling in Pennsylvania. Barletta explains that his first priority is keeping Pennsylvania safe, and all he asks is that the vetting process is secure prior to resettlement. Then, Giordano and Barletta circle back to Governor Wolf's edict, with Barletta re-emphasizing the Governor's record of accomplishment during the pandemic, in particular the decision to treat COVID patients in nursing homes.

Mainstream media and Hollywood celebrities, the public relations teams of left-wing politicians, have done an outstanding job dividing Americans. Those who follow their opinions and buy into their dogma become part of the cool club. They look down upon other citizens who ask questions, demand scientific evidence, or who present alternative solutions to the latest “threat” or “crisis.” No doubt, they'll ride the COVID Crisis Train as long as its renewable energy, solar powered, zero-emission, battery powered engine lasts. The dividing line in this war against the COVID virus isn't between our immune systems and the virus. They've defined the lines between those who obediently get the vaccine and those who don't, and those mask up their families, and those who don't. A new study, completed through the University of Louisville, shows what many critical thinkers already knew: Mass masking doesn't slow the spread of COVID. Even with this scientific evidence (and other studies like it), most masker-ragers won't change their mind about masking up. They'll probably dig their heels in further. Nonetheless, I felt it was important to share this information for those with open minds. The study I'm referring to in this blog post is Mask mandate and use efficacy for COVID-19 containment in US States, published in the International Research Journal of Public Health. Research Study: Mass Masking Does Not Slow the Spread of COVID I'll start with the punchline: We did not observe association between mask mandates or use and reduced COVID-19 spread in US states.Guerra DD et al. Guerra and team analyzed mask usage and COVID cases from mid-2020 through March, 2021. They used data “from Premise, the Facebook Global Symptom Survey [University of Maryland], the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the YouGov Behavior Tracker Survey.” The researchers categorized mask compliance into quintiles, or five levels of compliance. According to their data, Our main finding is that mask mandates and use likely did not affect COVID-19 case growth. Mask mandates were associated with greater mask use but ultimately did not influence total normalized cases or post-mandate case growth.Guerra DD et al. Mask mandates increased mask usage, but the increased mask usage did not change the spread of COVID-19. Am I surprised? Not at all. I do feel a bit of sadness though, as many of those who buy into Mainstream Media's narrative would ignore such facts, and continue to spew disdain and hatred towards those who choose to ignore demands to mask up. There's more to this published paper, though. Mass Masking Collateral Damage I wrote about the collateral damage so many anti-science masker-ragers choose to ignore in my blog post Masks and Face Coverings: Who's considering the collateral damage? Guerra and team reinforce my concerns. As masks have been required in many settings, it is prudent to weigh potential benefits with harms. Masks may promote social cohesion during a pandemic, but risk compensation can also occur. By obscuring nonverbal communication, masks interfere with social learning in children. Likewise, masks can distort verbal speech and remove visual cues to the detriment of individuals with hearing loss; clear face-shields improve visual integration, but there is a corresponding loss of sound quality. Prolonged mask use [>4 hours per day] promotes facial alkalinization and inadvertently encourages dehydration, which in turn can enhance barrier breakdown and bacterial infection risk. British clinicians have reported masks to increase headaches and sweating and decrease cognitive precision.Guerra DD et al. The most disturbing in all of this is the impact masks may have on kids. Children are not miniature adults. They're developing human beings, still learning how to communicate and work with other kids, read people's nonverbal cues, and most importantly, develop a sense of confidence in the world.
The ongoing battle among local, state and federal officials over COVID precautions in schools continues. The US Department of Education has now launched a civil rights investigation into five GOP-led states that have banned mask mandates in schools. Plus, the return of evictions in America.

When unchecked, our anger hurts us and our relationships. Listen as Heidi teaches you how to dismantle your anger, identify your fears, decide which anger is useful and re-anchor yourself to be the person you really want to be. Learn the exact tools to keep yourself off the emotional rollercoasters others around you are on.
David Zweig joins us on the Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest piece in New York Magazine regarding the lack of scientific data that supports masking up our children in schools. In fact, Zweig explains how there is science that tells us not to mask up kids in schools. Photo by: Getty Images See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
