The generational divide in our country feels massive.  With the rise of Gen Z and the sentiment of ‘Okay Boomer', it doesn't feel as though one generation values the other.  If anything, younger generations especially are scapegoated for the direction our culture is taking.  In this episode we welcome Selah Cluff and as a member of GenZ to discuss this divide and explore how we might cross it. One of the first places this discussion goes is how each generation views the future and what cultural events define the generations represented. It is a wide road of experiences and events that shapes such diverse outlooks on the world and it's future.  You won't want to miss out on this conversation. And finally in an exercise of relevance, Selah quizzes the Irenicast hosts on current Gen Z slang.  Find out which of the Irenicast team is in the know and who is stuck in a moment.

The biggest Denver story of the year was undoubtedly Casa Bonita, and the watchword for this second chapter of the story is “uncertainty.” Because back in August, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker announced they'd be buying the place. We all knew that Matt and Trey found the Mexican restaurant in a strip mall comical, but did they get it? Like, if they were going to be the stewards of this place, did they really understand what made it special?  Join Host Bree Davies and Producer Paul Karolyi as we revisit that moment of uncertainty after the South Park guys bought the pink palace, when we took a tour with Westword editor Patty Calhoun and Bree interviewed David Thomas, “professor of fun” — both of whom really helped us understand what makes Casa Bonita so dang fun.  Here's how we described this interview back when it aired on October 6: It's official: Trey Parker and Matt Stone have purchased Casa Bonita. So, now what? Will the Lakewood landmark stay the same, or become a fully South Park-themed eatertainment destination? While the iconic restaurant's future hangs in the balance, we wanted to know: What really makes Casa Bonita fun? Host Bree Davies and Producer Paul Karolyi took an official tour of the still-closed-for-dining immersive eatery with David Thomas, the “Professor of Fun.” David explains why Casa Bonita is more than just a theme restaurant — it's an architecturally designed masterpiece that invites play, stirs imagination, and ensures that all who visit will be transported to another place and time for an experience that can be hard to put into words.  The City Cast Denver Crew joined Westword editor Patty Calhoun for the Casa Bonita tour, too — you can read her take on CB and the concept of fun here.

In the wake of the recent Oxford Michigan High School shooting, the guys from 3CT are joined by their guests, Retired Chief Tony Pustizzi of the Coral Springs (FL) Police Department and Cyber Crimes Detective Rich Wistocki to discuss some preventive measures to help avoid these tragedies. They examine the need for properly trained and certified School Resource Officers that can effectively interact with school staff, administrators and parents. Also explored are some of Chief Pustizzi's experiences during the infamous 2018 Parkland school shooting and Detective Wistocki's knowledge in forecasting and stopping potential threats.   About the guests:Chief Tony Pustizzi (retired) began his career with the Coral Springs Police Department in 1988. Over his 30-year tenure, he supervised every unit within the agency with a strong emphasis on investigations, including homicide and special victims. Tony served on the SWAT team for 15 years where the last eight he was team commander. Tony rose through the ranks to ultimately become chief of police in 2012. He also served as the city's interim city manager and retired in March 2018 as the chief of police/deputy city manager. In January 2019, Tony came out of retirement to serve as the special counsel to the new sheriff of Broward County upon his appointment by the governor of the state of Florida.During the school massacre on February 14, 2018, where a former student entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida and killed 17 innocent people and injured another 17 students, Chief Pustizzi, along with members of his agency, arrived at the school within minutes of being notified and was instrumental in organizing a complex law enforcement approach, including stopping and capturing the killer and extracting victims from within the school was initiated.Tony now conducts trainings nationwide on school and workplace violence preparedness as he is a firm believer that seconds save lives and can attest that the Hero911 app for police would have alerted his officers minutes earlier, possibly saving lives during the incident he was directly involved in. Child crime expert Detective Richard Wistocki has dedicated his career to helping children by tirelessly pursuing, apprehending and prosecuting child predators.  As an active Cyber Crimes Detective he educates Law Enforcement using cutting edge investigative techniques and Parents and Students on responsible digital activity.​30 year, decorated member of Law Enforcement23 year SWAT team memberAuthored the State of Illinois Sexting LawAuthored the State of Illinois Sexual Exploitation of a Child LawMember of The United States Secret Service Chicago Electronic Crimes Task Force (CECTF)Member of The Illinois Attorney General's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC)High Technology Crimes Detective, Naperville Ill.   Formed the Will County Illinois States Attorney's High Technology Crimes Unit that made over 90 sexual predator arrests in its first 3 ½ years. Created Juvenile Justice Online, a first of its kind diversion program redefining the future of positive juvenile reform.  Resources/Links/Websites:https://fourstarstrategies.comwww.juvenilejusticeonline.orghttps://www.besureconsulting.com/tonyp@fourstarstrategies.comrichwistocki@besureconsulting.com

This is not a substitute for medical care and is not intended for use in the diagnosis or treatment of individual conditions. Guests on this podcast express their own opinions, experience, and conclusions. The mention of any product, service, organization, activity, or therapy should not be construed as an ASCO endorsement. PAT LOEHRER: Hi. I'm Pat Loehrer. I'm a director of the Centers for Global Health and Health Equity at Indiana University Simon Cancer Center. DAVE JOHNSON: And I'm Dave Johnson. I'm a medical oncologist at UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas. PAT LOEHRER: Well, welcome back to ASCO's education new podcast series entitled Oncology, Etc. Today, we'll be joined by two outstanding guests, Dr. Bryan Schneider and Dr. Adrian Gardner. We're going to do a deep dive about COVID-19. And Dave, I was thinking-- I was reflecting on my life. The thing in medicine is when new diseases come out. So in our earlier lives, when we started there, was no such thing as Lyme disease, HIV/AIDS-- tumors didn't exist. And then just in the last couple of years now, we have COVID-19, the SARS CoV 2. And I think as physicians, it's kind of exciting. What's your experience been with the COVID-19 in the wards at Parkland? DAVE JOHNSON: Well, it's been really, very challenging. You know, I don't know that the public yet has fully grasped the magnitude of this disease. I mean, 700,000-plus Americans have died of this disease. That's an astonishing number when you think about it. And I was just on the general medical wards just a couple of weeks ago with a wonderful team of residents and students. Patients with this disease are very sick. We often downplay it, but I'm telling you, these people are really quite ill and can get ill and symptomatic rapidly, within hours. So this is a serious illness. But I agree with you. One of the things I told the residents a year ago was to keep a journal, that there are a few times during the course of your training and career where a new disease emerges, and you can be part and parcel of that. And keeping a diary of what happened is something that I wish I had done when AIDS emerged back in the '80s, or other disease processes, like Lyme, as you mentioned. PAT LOEHRER: And syphilis for you, wasn't it? DAVE JOHNSON: Well, that was sort of the [LAUGHS] Hippocratic oath days, but yeah, no. I think that was-- I think-- I can't remember. We were hanging out together at the time, so I don't remember exactly. Yeah, no, it's been really remarkable. The thing that's been interesting to me is the response of individuals and their families to the disease, particularly once the vaccines came available. So maybe we can delve into that a little bit today, because I know one of our guests has actually experienced that himself, so we'll know more about that later. PAT LOEHRER: I don't think, to be honest, that we could have a better collective wisdom than we have today with Dr. Schneider and Dr. Gardner, who will talk about their personal and professional and I think the global impact of COVID. I don't think there's any two people better than that. The only thing we could do better is if Anthony Fauci was here by himself. But these guys are tremendous people. Dr. Gardner went to medical school at Brown, did his fellowship and infectious disease at Beth Israel, and then did his MPH at Harvard, and joined the faculty in Indiana University in 2012. When he was a student, he spent time in Kenya, with Joe Mamlin from Indiana University as part of the AMPATH program. And he came back to become the field director there. And he is just an outstanding person. He's now the director of the Center of Global Health for Indiana University and the Associate Dean for Global Health and has led the contact tracing for Indiana University. And he's going to give us some input from this. Bryan, again, I've known forever. He's just an outstanding medical oncologist. He is now a Professor of Medicine and Medical and Molecular Genetics here at IU. He's a Vera Bradley chair of oncology. He is the founding chair of our precision genomics program and just a superstar in breast cancer as well as pharmacogenomics and was one of the first to describe the unique neuropathy associated with the taxanes in breast cancer. So it's just a pleasure to have both of you here. DAVE JOHNSON: You know, Pat, it's great to have that talent there. It balances out the negativity of other faculty members. But that's great. Welcome, both of you. PAT LOEHRER: I loved you a minute ago. I've turned mute on from a distance here. Adrian, tell me a little bit about yourself, growing up and how you got to where you were. ADRIAN GARDNER: Sure, thanks. And thanks so much for the invitation and for being part of this and for the generous introduction. So as you said, Pat, I'm a product of an international environment. That's an important part of my upbringing, actually. I was born in Scotland to two parents that-- born and bred in Scotland and grew up in Scotland. I spent the first six years of my life really living in France and then moved to Lawrence, Kansas, which was quite a cultural shift, but spent four years there. And it was great, actually, time in my life to be there, before moving to the East Coast, where I went to school and did all my medical training. So I'd had international experiences before, and I think that was an important part of my upbringing and something I sought for my kids, in the sense that it just immediately resets your sense of the world and makes you feel like a global citizen as opposed to just sort of more limited-- the community you're surrounded by. But it really wasn't until my experience as a fourth-year medical student at Brown that I had the opportunity to see health care in a low-resource setting and see that. And that was a very powerful experience professionally and personally. And as you said, it was the time when Joe Mamlin was really just dreaming up what the HIV response was going to look like, this nice institutional partnership that we'd set up in Western Kenya. But we set it up in the middle of the global pandemic. And true to our mission of responding and leading with care, felt a need to respond to the HIV pandemic. And that started really by-- was motivated by personal interactions that Joe had with some individuals who he saw firsthand come back to life, the Lazarus effect that has been reported. And that really spawned this whole response, changed my career and certainly my life, and had profound effects on my life. So that's a bit of who I am as an individual and how I got to where I am today. PAT LOEHRER: And we're going to touch on some of the work that you're doing now. But before I do, Bryan, tell us a little bit about and your background, where you grew up and how you got to where you are today. BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Thanks to you, and Dave as well, for having me on. And this will be an interesting perspective, because I think I'm coming on here as the patient this time, so it'll be a different view. But in contradistinction to Adrian, I am a pure Hoosier. I was born in the southern part of the state and raised there and then drove three hours north to Indianapolis, where I've set up for the last 25 years, and just been really lucky to be here at Indiana University. And Pat, you may not even remember this-- about 25 years ago, you were my formal mentor for med school, and so one of the influences and sticking around here along with some other real greats along the way. So have done, as you mentioned, breast medical oncology here in genomics and have had an absolute blast. So thanks for having me on. PAT LOEHRER: Oh, we love having you. And just as an aside, Bryan-- one is I think the world of you, and so proud of what you've accomplished. But Bryan's backyard actually was the home of Henry Lynch, and where he first described Lynch syndrome down in southern Indiana. And I think no greater tribute in his legacy than what you have done with precision genomics. It's really terrific. DAVE JOHNSON: Yeah. Maybe we'll have some time to delve into that. But actually, I'm curious, Bryan-- you mentioned that you've come on as the patient. My understanding is you've had firsthand experience with COVID, not just as a physician, but as the recipient of that wonderful new virus. Maybe you could tell us a little about that? BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Yeah, an interesting experience to be sure. So about 2 and 1/2 months ago, I tested positive for COVID and got really sick. Yeah, my three-year-old son had brought it home from his preschool and infected his older brother, who's almost 12, and then my wife and myself. And so was a really fascinating experience, I guess, and brought about some aspects to the virus that I had never really thought about. PAT LOEHRER: Now, Bryan, you also had COVID before, too. BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Yes. And the first time-- I was probably one of the very, very early cases and got really sick with it and lost my sense of taste and smell. I actually got one of the purple fingers, which I went to the ER for. I thought I was having a or something. And at the time, those weren't well-recognized symptoms. And that loss of taste and smell went months for me. So, yeah, I think I have frankly had the infection twice. The second time, though, was documented and certainly got really sick with the second one. DAVE JOHNSON: Can you elaborate on your second case? When you say you got really sick, was it a respiratory illness or were there other symptoms? BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Yeah, there were two aspects to it that were interesting. I think the first was physical. I got a sense of fatigue that I don't know that I have ever experienced before. It was one that I literally just could not get out of bed. And you know, I lost about 10 to 15 pounds from just being anorectic. And I'm not an overly thick human to begin with. But the big one was shortness of breath. And we had a pulse ox at home. My wife's a pediatrician, and I was sating in the high 80s. And I work out five or six times a week, so keep in pretty good shape, and I was stopping midway up the stairs to sit down, because I felt really tachycardic and just lightheaded. And so that degree of physical punishment is something like I have never expected or felt before. But the psychological part of it was really something I did not expect. And one part of that was an odd sense of guilt. I was getting texts and calls from a lot of friends checking on me, and many were baffled and asking, hey, did you not get vaccinated? Or what was going on with that? And so that-- it was a very odd sensation to me, because I, of course, had been vaccinated and I mask and all those sort of things. The other was one of real fear. I worried-- you know, luckily, I guess, our family all got infected around the same time, so we didn't have to think about quarantine. But I started wondering, could I have infected a patient? I take care of immunosuppressed breast cancer patients, before I was symptomatic. And then even after I came back to work, I had quarantined for quite some time, but I was really fearful. I would find myself double masking, washing my hands incessantly, and even holding my breath when I was trying to listen to heart and lungs during examination. So that sort of psychology was something I don't think I really expected with this infection. DAVE JOHNSON: How long did it take you to get beyond that, or are you beyond that part? BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Yeah. You know, I feel back to my baseline now. And I certainly don't worry about it on a day-to-day basis now. But my first clinic or two back was really hard for me, psychologically and emotionally. And part of me even wondered, should I profess to all my patients that I've had COVID? Or what things can I do to help protect them? And again, it was that mental aspect that I just didn't really anticipate prior to heading back to my clinic. DAVE JOHNSON: You know, this is eerily reminiscent of the physician who's had cancer who experiences extreme fatigue for the first time, chemotherapy-induced fatigue, after having described it many, many times before-- BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Right. DAVE JOHNSON: --and who has a guilt sensation in many respects as well. So quite the experience, for sure. PAT LOEHRER: Dave was talking about himself, by the way. BRYAN SCHNEIDER: No, I can only imagine. And you're right. We do try to paint a picture to patients about how things are going to feel, and it's amazing. When it's internalized or when you're feeling, it's-- it can often bring about a sense of, wow, I don't know that I-- I may have underplayed this to some of my patients in the past. And it really does provide some degree of empathy that's hard to capture if you haven't felt it. DAVE JOHNSON: So when I was on the wards, Bryan, I must confess, there were times when we walked into a patient's room with COVID who, of course, had not been vaccinated long after the vaccines were approved. Our professionalism prevents us from doing anything other than taking care of those people, but I'm wondering how you feel about caring for patients who have not been vaccinated or refuse to be vaccinated. BRYAN SCHNEIDER: Yeah. I mean, I think probably similar to a lot of people listening here today, it's a bit frustrating. And I think we all take care of patients who have a really tough diagnosis. And we're in the interesting field of giving patients medications that really immunosuppresses them, so we spend time counseling on the fact that you may get really sick or hospitalized or even die from neutropenic sepsis. And I think that is something that rests really hard with patients who are already dealing with a life-threatening diagnosis. And so now, trying to do that counseling in the face of a global pandemic like we haven't seen for a hundred years has really brought around a sense of duress and distress in my patients like I've never seen before. You know, I even had a patient who moved away from her family to be quarantined during adjuvant therapy, which I, of course, recommended against. But it really impressed upon me how big a deal this was. And so to see their frustration, and then in contradistinction, understanding that some people didn't want to pitch in to help-- it was very frustrating and honestly just made me very sad for people who I know were really struggling with this. DAVE JOHNSON: Actually, I had one more question to ask you. You mentioned coming back-- did you, in fact, share your diagnosis with your patients? I mean, I-- when I had cancer and came back, I made a pact with myself that I wasn't going to do that. But then I learned that the nurses were telling patients that I had cancer, and I found that it actually was helpful to share that diagnosis with many of my patients so that they could ask questions and feel that they had someone who really had experienced what they were either going through or about to go through. So I'm wondering how you've shared your diagnosis of COVID with patients, if at all. BRYAN SCHNEIDER: No, that's a great question. And I may have followed a similar pattern. At first I didn't. I didn't know what to do, to be frank. I didn't know if my saying that would make that patient, in that moment, more stressed out or worried, and I certainly didn't want to add to that. So I took it upon myself to try to make myself as safe to them as possible. But now that I've had a little chance to reflect on it, I have shared it. And I think for some of my patients, it's been good for them to hear what that experience was like. I think it's also-- Dave, as you probably know, I think it also reminds them we're human, too, and we experience some difficulty with physical health and I think in some ways it allows us to bond in a little bit deeper way. DAVE JOHNSON: I agree. PAT LOEHRER: I want to turn the attention over to Adrian now. Adrian, you're in a unique position, obviously one because of your experience in Kenya, and we want to hear about that, but also your responsibility for Indiana University. What some of the listeners may recall is that there was a decision made that you were part of that actually mandated that students in Indiana University be required to have vaccination before they came to school. We were in Kenya at the time when we heard that there was some consideration about that from the state legislature in terms of how-- mandating that. And eventually, this was a case that in which eight students took this case to cohort that eventually reached to Amy Coney Barrett, who decided to find in favor of Indiana University. It was a landmark decision here. But tell us a little bit about your experience on the leadership role of COVID and the impact that you see in terms of yourself personally and from the field of the university. ADRIAN GARDNER: Yeah. Thanks, Pat. I think it's really two different worlds in my mind, in some ways, although clearly linked by this global pandemic. You know, I was just finishing my eight-year stint, essentially, in Kenya in March of 2020 when we got the news that the entire world was about to be declared a level 4 by the State Department. And well, that-- I remember actually talking to Joe Scodro on the phone. And he's like, what the heck does that mean? That's not in our playbook of what we do when things happen and we need to bring trainees home and sort of-- PAT LOEHRER: Scodro being the lead counsel for Indiana University here. ADRIAN GARDNER: Thank you. Yeah, yeah. So for me-- I mean, obviously I was making a transition back to a US-based career in this position as the Director for the Center for Global Health. But you know, I had a dramatic change in my position, right? I mean, who is going to do global health operations in the middle of a pandemic? Well, nobody, because nobody was traveling. So we had really shifted all of our Kenya operations to a virtual support. We pulled all our trainees and long-term faculty back, initially. And my own position here is-- got pulled into a leadership role in Indiana University's response to the pandemic, along with three other physician leaders. And we all took on a different component of the response. So I was involved in the contact tracing, in part because we had some experience with contact tracing and global settings and tuberculosis and HIV. And while the transmission dynamics are obviously quite dramatically different and has different implications, but some of the principles around contact tracing were similar in the sense that contact tracing is not about really a stick, but it's more about extending a carrot and extending the support that allows you then to create an enabling environment-- and a quick phone call, in this case-- to allow people to identify what it is to quarantine and isolate effectively. To get to the Supreme Court issues and around mandates-- I think it was fairly obvious-- we were part of a restart committee that had been put together by the Dean of the School of Medicine, Jay Hess, and it was fairly noncontroversial among that group that we were going to need vaccine as we marched through this. And we immediately set up a lot of testing infrastructure and what we called mitigation testing at that point of asymptomatic individuals in addition to creating systems that enabled people to-- with symptoms, to enable testing very quickly and to get results back and to get that whole infrastructure in place. But it was pretty obvious to us-- it was a group of medical, public health, and ethics and legal folks-- that we were going to need a high level of immunity to get back to anything normal, right? And as we began planning for the summer and the fall of 2021, it was like-- it's a no-brainer. I mean, the only way you're going to get high levels of immunity, if you want to bring people back into the same classroom, if you want to have people living in dormitories, if you want to have them engage in the normal activities that college kids want to engage in, then you've got to have a very high level of immunity. And the only way to really achieve that is going to be through vaccine mandates. And again, it wasn't-- it didn't feel unprecedented, because you have to get a whole bunch of vaccines when you go off to college or when you go to elementary school. And that's really the only way to achieve that high level of coverage that allows us to not have a bunch of measles in our environment. And we still have mumps, despite high levels of coverage. But yeah, it felt weirdly noncontroversial. But of course, the whole politicization, I think, of the whole response to the pandemic made this more controversial. And clearly, there are people that feel very strongly about it. But I think this-- framing it in a context of personal freedom versus public good has not been particularly healthy for us as a country. I guess I'm not terribly surprised that the Supreme Court ultimately ruled against the preliminary injunction. I think the formal case is still pending, but it's maybe been overtaken by events, because now there are government mandates that are requiring vaccine or regular testing of just about-- lots of different industries and government employees and things. So I think it was important that we took a stand on this. And I think it has set a precedent, I think, for other universities. There were initially some hospital systems doing the same. But I think it's made it a lot easier to keep moving through industries and health systems with this kind of decision. PAT LOEHRER: Parenthetically, there's-- this week, they announced the-- we've reached over a million cases of COVID in Indiana. But the lowest county for infectious rate is actually Monroe County, which is where Bloomington is, where Indiana University is. And it's less than half of the rate of the state. And so I think kudos to you and the staff that have done this. Just maybe briefly, could you reflect on your experiences in Kenya, here in the United States-- lessons learned by you or by the university or by public officials about the contrast? I am reflecting now about a patient I saw today, that-- we were talking about the booster vaccine. And unfortunately, in Kenya, most people haven't gotten their first vaccine, either. So reflect a little bit about the global impact as you've seen personally. ADRIAN GARDNER: Yeah. So again, I think it's felt like two different worlds, but obviously struggling with the same thing, right? So I think on a global perspective-- so Kenya has-- Kenya got off to a pretty good start because they were kind of late to the game when it came to COVID, and they were able to jump on and learn from some of the lessons about physical distancing and shutting things down that actually enabled them to escape in the beginning. Of course, there was probably transmission going on behind the scenes that we weren't detecting, and even till now, the numbers that are officially reported are really just the tip of the iceberg. I think know that. Kenya has only reported 250,000 cases and just over 5,000 fatalities nationwide since the beginning of the pandemic. But there are serology studies that suggest that 50%, 60% of the population may have actually been infected-- at least, right? And that's based on blood donor studies and things. So I mean, I think some of the initial challenges, obviously, around access to PPE-- as we think about health care settings there, which are-- our partnership is based in, as you know. It's just the lack of infection control and the ability to even think about infection control because you're lacking space. As you know, Pat, in many of these wards in low-resource settings, there are two patients in every bed. And one might have active pulmonary TB and one might be getting chemotherapy for breast cancer. And it's less than ideal. But as you think about how to respond to that, it's pretty hard when you don't have any space, right? I mean, we did a lot here in terms of retooling space and utilizing space that was not being used and putting in negative pressure rooms where they were needed and this kind of thing that just weren't options in Kenya. One good news was that I think in Kenya, in particular, the testing capacity was able to get an early jump because the HIV infrastructure, PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, had established seven regional laboratories that were obviously running HIV viral loads and so had PCR platforms. And they were able to rapidly retool those and convert them into COVID testing laboratories for PCR. So that was good, but then never really got to the same point where we need to get to, which is that it's readily accessible to everyone in rural regions and rapid testing in order to inform triage protocols [INAUDIBLE] patients and try to figure out how to develop that. So there's been testing available, but just not in the quantities that were sufficient. You know, I think we've been able to work across virtual platforms to share knowledge about management and clinical protocol development. That's been another success story. Certainly our partnership is longstanding and so has allowed those relationships that have withstood the test of nonpersonal interaction. And of course, the biggest elephant in the room now is this issue of vaccine equity, as you pointed out. So about 5% of the population in Kenya has been vaccinated. Part of that is vaccine access. Part of it is probability distribution infrastructure. Think about low resource settings-- many of them do quite well with vaccine delivery, but they're early childhood vaccines, right? So they have whole infrastructure around maternal child health that's set up to do this. There's not a lot of infrastructure for rapidly mobilizing 50 million adults to try and get them in for a two-shot series. So how do you do that? I mean, yes there are some community assets in terms of community health workers and things, but so far, at least, the vaccine quantities available have not been sufficient to allow that kind of infrastructure to really take over, at least in Kenya. But it holds promise, I think. But then they also are up against the same, I think-- some of the same challenges that we face here in terms of vaccine misinformation and lack of trust. This is an area where I think trust is really key ingredient in health systems, and I think we've seen it in our own inequalities that have been made very, very obvious in our own country and really, the issue globally. And it's not a new lesson. We knew it from Ebola and other very obvious infectious diseases that have resulted in high degrees of death because of lack of trust. When I have taken care of patients here and I've had those same experiences that Dave was talking about earlier, where you want to just ask the patient, so why didn't you get vaccinated? As an infectious disease provider, we've been called in to a lot of these cases, and I've taken the opportunity to ask a couple of times-- not in a judgmental way, but trying to set the stage and just-- what is it about the system? And a lot of-- some of it is misinformation. Some of it is this politicization and political bias. But some of it is just a very subtle mistrust and this notion that you don't feel completely welcomed or resected within the health care setting. And that's enough to just turn it off to this point where, eh, I'm just not ready to do that. And I think that's sometimes more subtle than we appreciate, but it has a huge impact. DAVE JOHNSON: We're getting close to the end of our time. I want to pivot back, if I may, just for a quick moment to Bryan. This may be an out of-- from left field type of question, but we learned a lot about early chemotherapy from the infectious disease world. We took some of the infectious disease principles and applied them in the early years of chemotherapy. Do you think there's much to be learned from a precision medicine standpoint from the COVID pandemic? What are you taking away from not just your personal experience but the larger experience, if anything? Or is that just-- is it just too early to say? BRYAN SCHNEIDER: No, I mean-- I think I've always admired the speed and efficiency with which breakthroughs have happened in infectious disease. And I mean, the idea of a brand new virus coming on board a couple of years ago and coming to the point where we are today shows, I think, real innovation, but the ability to get behind a question and, as a community, answer it well. And I think from that standpoint, that's something that all disciplines, including oncology, can learn. I certainly think we're seeing more and more intersection, too, with the way we think about treating cancer and its impact on immunity. And so certainly in that way I think there's real connections. But I do think some of the innovations that were brought about from the NCI with the vaccines are going to really also herald in things that will be game-changers in the world of oncology and therapeutics as well. DAVE JOHNSON: That's great. PAT LOEHRER: If I can throw in something, too-- I think, Dave, particularly as we talk about global health, many of the cancers that we see in the low-to-middle income countries are caused by viruses. One of the number one causes of cancer in sub-Saharan Africa is cervical cancer. We could eradicate that by getting vaccines out there. In terms of the lessons learned, I think the lessons learned in oncology is that we need to deal more with population health and with prevention than we do with the treatment towards the end of the life. And hopefully that will be a lesson that we can take home with us around the world. ADRIAN GARDNER: Yeah, and Pat, I think we do need to do better as a global community in terms of sharing vaccine and getting manufacturing up, and not just for vaccines but PPE and therapeutics. It's just not fair, the world we live in now. And at least we all know that and we take it for granted in some ways. But it shouldn't be this unfair, right? And that's been part of the problem globally, and it's part of the problem in the United States. DAVE JOHNSON: Yeah. PAT LOEHRER: But the tail end also is access to drugs for chemotherapy, too, and to have radiation available for all these patients. So it is-- this access is an important part of health equity globally. And I think it behooves all of us to be involved with this mission. DAVE JOHNSON: Well, again, we've come to the end of our time. And we want to thank all of our listeners, but most of all, we really want to thank Bryan and Adrian for a wonderful interview.

Conspiracy Unlimited: Following The Truth Wherever It Leads

EPISODE #661 JFK: CONNECTING THE DOTS PT. 7 James DiEugenio details the life and times of famed New Orleans District Attorney, Jim Garrison. In 1969, Garrison prosecuted Clay Shaw in New Orleans for conspiring to kill President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, which gave him the distinction of being the only prosecutor ever to try someone for the assassination. DiEugenio explains how Garrison came to believe that the CIA was involved in the assassination, leading to the CIA's campaign to discredit Garrison and undermine his case. Guest:  James DiEugenio is one of the foremost researchers into the major assassinations of the 1960's. His first book: Destiny Betrayed, was an in depth look at the Garrison investigation. In 1993 he co-founded both Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination, and the following year: the Coalition on Political Assassinations . Along with Lisa Pease he co-edited COPA's journal: Probe Magazine from 1993-2000, and later assisted in a compilation of the Probe articles which was published as The Assassinations. In response to Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History and associated film Parkland, DiEugenio published Reclaiming Parkland, a critique of Bugliosi's methodology, evidence, and findings in the Kennedy Assassination.   Jim was a guest commentator on the anniversary issue of the film "JFK" re-released by Warner Brothers in 2013.  Most recently, Jim wrote the screenplay for  Oliver  Stone's latest film, JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass. ​BOOKS: Destiny Betrayed Reclaiming Parkland The Assassinations: Probe Magazine on JFK, MLK, RFK, and Malcolm X The JFK Assassination SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS Life Change and Formula 13 Teas All Organic, No Caffeine, Non GMO!  More Energy!  Order now, use the code 'unlimited' to save 10% on all non-SALE items, PLUS...

James Gordon -- Finding Treasure in the Ruins of Trauma

Awakin Call

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 4, 2021


Trauma comes to all of us, and its consequences can be terrible. That’s the truth and the bad news. The good news is that all of us can use tools of self-awareness and self-care to heal our trauma and, indeed, to become healthier and more whole than we’ve ever been. If we accept the pain that trauma inflicts, it can open our minds and bodies to healing change. -- Dr. James Gordon As a second-year psychiatric medical student at Harvard University, Dr. James Gordon hit a wall. Although both his father and grandfather had been physicians before him, he was no longer sure why he was there. He was troubled by the way he saw patients being treated, feeling the focus too cut and dried, and missing the loving approach that he had envisioned and hoped for in medicine. But he was graced at this time to meet a kind and compassionate professor and psychotherapist in Robert Coles, who offered Gordon the opportunity to discover and embrace parts of himself that he had forgotten or not even known. Further, Coles shared his work with kids stricken by poverty and racism in New Orleans, kindling the flame of Gordon’s own life-long passion for taking trauma healing to all walks of life – especially the world’s most troubled areas. “Suffering is the soil in which wisdom and compassion grow; it is the school from which we graduate, committed to healing others’ hurt.” This pivotal time in Dr. Gordon’s life, and the healing journey that called him to serve others, set him on the road to becoming a world-renowned expert on healing population-wide psychological trauma, anxiety, and depression. His approach marries Western medical knowledge with alternative medicine methods and those of the world’s indigenous and spiritual traditions. A proponent of “self-care as the true primary-care,” Dr. Gordon founded the nonprofit Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) in 1991, in Washington, D.C., with an initial mission “to make self-awareness, self-care, and group support central to all healthcare” by training health care professionals with the tools of stress- and trauma-relief. But similar to his experience hitting a wall in medical school, he soon recognized the limits of the medical establishment in embracing holistic modalities – and so he extended his work and offerings beyond the walls of traditional health care practice, going directly out to communities and creating a version of medicine for the people, by the people. Through the CMBM, Dr. Gordon has created training programs of mind-body healing that extend far and wide – not just for health professionals, but for traumatized populations in the world’s hot spots such as the Balkans, the Middle East, Haiti, and Africa; for teachers and families in Broward County, FL after the Parkland school shootings; for victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Harvey; for U.S. vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan; and even for the U.S. Capitol police. He and the CMBM faculty have traveled worldwide, embracing a model of creating healing communities by training the trainers, or “Teaching Thousands to Heal Millions.” Dr. Gordon leads an international faculty of 130 who have trained more than 6,000 clinicians, educators, and community leaders. In turn, these trainers have brought CMBM’s therapeutic and educational program to many hundreds of thousands of traumatized and stressed adults and children, as well as people confronting the challenges of anxiety, depression, and chronic and life-threatening illnesses. An early pioneer in using mind-body medicine to heal, Dr. Gordon contends that we are all, in the end, affected by trauma. (Never more true than today, he adds.)  But he also believes that “all of us, regardless of age or educational level, have a great and largely untapped capacity to help and heal ourselves and one another…We may think we don’t have the answers, but each of us has a part inside us that knows.” His experience serving the world’s many traumatized populations has reinforced his commitment to supporting individuals’ own inherent capacities for self-healing. “Going through difficult situations myself, and coming out the other side has taught me that I could be a midwife to this process [in others]; I’m not there to fix people.” Regular meditation on the breath, as an antidote to “flight or fight” mode, is a critical component of Gordon’s three-fold approach to trauma self-healing work – all sessions, groups, and meetings begin and end with this important component. Another key component, sourced from indigenous forms of healing, is sharing in community. “As we bring parts of ourselves online that have been suppressed or ignored, we become more complete and whole human beings – part of that is wanting to share ourselves with others. It’s built into our DNA.” Characterizing himself as “a free spirit and a bit of a troublemaker,” Dr. Gordon volunteered, after his Harvard training, at the Haight-Ashbury Free Medical Clinic in the 60s, attended Woodstock as a volunteer physician, and then spent 10 years as a National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) researcher, where he developed the first national program for runaway and homeless kids.   In 1973 he had a powerful encounter with a London-based osteopath, acupuncturist, naturopath, and meditation master of East Indian background who “opened universes” to him, most importantly the value of “expressive meditations” that Dr. Gordon incorporates as high energy “Shaking & Dancing” to fast, rhythmic music in his Mind-Body Skills trainings. “These were the tools of the shamans of Siberia and of ancient healers and traditions around the world -- archaic techniques of ecstasy.” They also have proven value for reestablishing equilibrium for stressed and trauma-frozen bodies. Bringing his healing work to populations from the Eastern and indigenous traditions that seeded many of his initial explorations, Gordon has shared Shaking and Dancing with a group of recent Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India, the home of the Dalai Lama. He also has worked closely with tribal elders, teachers, and clinicians on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservations in South Dakota to create a program that has joined Mind-Body Medicine with traditional Lakota healing, effectively addressing youth suicide. In addition to his work with the CMBM program, Dr. Gordon has been Director of Mind-Body Studies and clinical professor in the departments of psychiatry and family medicine at Georgetown Medical School and Georgetown University since 1980. He chaired the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. He publishes widely, having authored several books including his latest, The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma, as well as many articles. He has recently conducted a series of interviews with a broad spectrum of individuals who are benefiting from his trauma healing work, ranging from a Black human rights lawyer and activist campaigning for reparations, to an Islamic jihadist who was jailed for his role in terrorist plots, to Buddhist meditation teacher Tara Brach, to a Michigan Democrat facing “Congressional trauma.” Join us in conversation with this devoted practitioner of a medicine truly based on compassion for self and all beings.

That’s up from 5.9 percent on November 24. The Virginia Department of Health reports another 2,598 cases today, with the seven-day average increasing to 1,836 new cases a day. Sixty-five point four percent of the adult population is fully vaccinated and there is a seven-day average of 28,534 shots administered. Over 1.3 million Virginians have had a booster or third dose.In the Blue Ridge Health District, there are 67 new cases reported today, and the percent positivity is 6.7 percent. There are now confirmed cases of the Omicron variant in the United States. Dr. Amy Mathers is an associate professor of medicine and pathology in the University of Virginia Health system. She’s part of statewide efforts to sequence the various variants. “We’re contributing about 250 to 300 sequences a week,” Dr. Mathers said. “But we can only sequence what tests positive by PCR.” That means the rapid antigen tests do not collect the same biological information required for gene sequencing, which could limit efforts to identify the spread of the new variant. In the meantime, Dr. Costi Sifri urges calm while research is conducted. “There’s more that we don’t know about the Omicron variant than we do know about the Omicron variant,” said Dr. Costi Sifri, the director of hospital epidemiology at UVA Health. “What we do know is that its a variant that carries a lot of mutations. More than 30 in the spike protein as well as 20 or more additional mutations spread across the genome.” Dr. Sifri said some of these mutations relate to greater transmissibility and infection rates, but the emergence of Omicron is not unexpected. He said time will tell the impact on public health. “It’s not surprising that we’re seeing it around the world at this point, in more than two dozen countries,” Dr. Sifri said. “What is the efficacy of vaccines against the omicron variant? We really don’t know right now. We have heard of breakthrough infections but of course we’ve heard about breakthrough infections with Delta as well.” Dr. Sifri said it appears vaccinations will continue to provide benefits and more information and time will help test that assumption. He said in the meantime the best thing to do is get vaccinated and to continue to practice mitigation strategies. “We are seeing an increase in cases and it’s important since we were just talking about Omicron to understand that right now, 99.9 percent of cases are due to the Delta variant,” Dr. Sifri said. “What we have been seeing this fall and now heading into the holiday is Dela.”The major difference between this holiday season and last year is the widespread availability of vaccines. Dr. Mathers urged anyone who is ill to take precautions. “If you’re symptomatic, get tested,” Dr. Mathers said. “The only way we’re going to see emergence of new virus is to get tested. So following up exposure or symptoms with testing is an additional way to help limit the spread of this virus.Dr. Sifri said people who do get tested should limit contact with others until the result comes back. “Don’t go to work, don’t go to school, don’t go to holiday parties,” Dr. Sifri said. “If you’ve gotten tested, wait for your test result before you go out into the community.” New Charlottesville personnel Charlottesville has hired two people to serve as department heads. Arthur Dana Kasler will serve as the new director of Parks and Recreation and Stacey Smalls will be the new director of Public Works. Both positions have been open since September and were filled despite the transition at the city manager position when Chip Boyles resigned in October. Kasler comes to Charlottesville after serving as the director of Parks and Recreation in Louisville where he oversaw over 14,000 acres of parks, natural areas, and other services. According to a profile on Linkedin, he’s held that position since April 2019. Prior to starting work in Louisville, he was parks and recreation director in Parkland, Florida. According to the Lane Report, he’s also worked in Pittsburgh, Ponte Verde Beach in Florida, Kingsland, Georgia, and Athens, Ohio. Kasler takes over a position in Charlottesville in which he may oversee creation of a  new master plan for recreational programs in the city. Stacey Smalls recently worked as director of the Wastewater Collection Division in the public works department in Fairfax County. Smalls has been in that position since February 2016. Prior to that, she served in similar capacities for the U.S. Air Force, including serving as deputy public works officer for the Joint Base at Pearl Harbor. She’ll oversee a public works in Charlottesville that took on responsibility for transportation design from the Department of Neighborhood Development Services during the administration of former City Manager Tarron Richardson. Both Kasler and Smalls will start work on December 20. They join Deputy City Managers Ashley Marshall and Sam Sanders, as well as NDS director Jim Freas, as relative newcomers to municipal government in Charlottesville. Albemarle personnel, development infoIn other personnel news, this week Albemarle County announced that planning director Charles Rapp will be promoted to Deputy Director of Community Development, succeeding Amelia McCulley who is retiring from the county after more than 38 years of service. Rapp began work in Albemarle in March 2020 after serving as director of planning and community development for the Town of Culpeper. A search for a new planning director is underway. Rapp’s immediate boss is Jodie Filardo, the director of Community Development Department. She’s been in that position since September 2019. This week, the Community Development Department sent out a notice for two site plans of note. One is to construct a 1,300 square foot addition at the North Garden Fire Department. Earlier this year, Supervisors approved a budget that includes five full-time staff at the station to be there during the daytime to improve response times in the southern portion of Albemarle County. In the second, the owners of Stonefield have put forth a site plan for a seven-story 112-unit apartment building in what’s known as Block C2-1. You may also know this as the intersection of Bond Street and District Avenue, two of the public streets created as part of the initial development of Stonefield. Republican House Majority confirmedThe Associated Press is reporting that a recount in Virginia’s 85th House District has reaffirmed a narrow victory by Republican Karen Greenhalgh over Democrat Alex Askew. The certified election results recorded a 127-vote majority for Greenhalgh. A panel of three judges oversaw the recount and found this morning that the certified results stand. A recount is still underway in the 91st district. That gives Republicans at least 51 seats in the next General Assembly. In the 91st District, Republican A.C. Cordoza has a 94-vote lead over Democrat Martha Mugler, though there is an independent candidate in that race. Incoming speaker of the House Todd Gilbert (R-15) issued a statement welcoming Greenhalgh to the Republican caucus. Campaign finance The final campaign finance reports are in this year’s elections, covering a period from October 22 to November 25. City Councilor-elect Brian Pinkston raised an additional $3,325 during that time, and spent $8,938.04, leaving a balance of $1,227.76. He’s also repaid himself $7,231.24 in loans. In all, Pinkston raised $115,095.77 in the campaign. (report)Fellow City Councilor-elect Juandiego Wade raised $5,265 during the final period and spent $2,702.86, resulting in a balance of unspent funds of $17,728. In all, Wade raised $101,806.45 during the campaign. (report)In Albemarle County, Samuel Miller District Supervisor-elect Jim Andrews raised an additional $250, spent $2,015.74, and ended the campaign with a balance of $17,515.74. In all, Andrews raised $38,366.77 during the campaign. (report)Jack Jouett District Supervisor Diantha McKeel raised $250, spent $1,783.07, and her end-of-year bank balance is $20,652.76. McKeel began the year with $14,971 on hand and raised $19,127.99 during the 2021 campaign. (report)Rio District Supervisor Ned Gallaway has not yet filed a report for this cycle and missed the deadline. In the first three weeks of October raised an additional $3 and spent nothing. He began 2021 with a balance of $7,293.28, raised $10,150, and had a balance of $14,806.40. All three Supervisors ran in uncontested races. In today’s second Patreon-fueled shout-out: The Rivanna Conservation Alliance is looking for a few good volunteers for a couple of upcoming events. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the RCA will team up with the James River Association to plant trees along the Rivanna River and Town Branch in the Dunlora neighborhood to serve as a riparian buffer. In all, they’re hoping to put in 9 acres of trees. On Sunday, the Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon takes place, and the Rivanna Conservation Alliance is the beneficiary! They’re looking for people to help put on the race. Learn more about both events and the organization at rivannariver.org. Wintergreen ownerThe resort company that has been running Wintergreen now owns the Nelson County property. Pacific Group Resorts of Utah had been leasing Wintergreen since 2015 but finalized acquisition from EPR Properties in October. “PGRI now owns the real estate, lifts, and snowmaking systems at the [resort] in addition to the operating equipment which it previously owned through its operating subsidiaries,” reads the release. Pacific Group Resorts also owns several other ski areas, including the Ragged Mountain resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Albemarle stream healthVirginia and many of its localities are responsible for taking steps to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. That includes Albemarle County, which is in the midst of an initiative to create policies to encourage, incentivize, or mandate the installation of vegetated buffers on the many tributaries of the James River. The Board of Supervisors was updated on the Stream Health Initiative on December 1. (materials)Kim Biassioli is the Natural Resources Manager in Albemarle County. She said the initiative is intended to advance the goals of the Climate Action Plan, the Biodiversity Action Plan, and the Comprehensive Plan itself. “Of course the focus of our work here today is on water quality and stream-health, but in protecting stream health and water quality, we’re likely to be providing so many other benefits for climate, for scenic value, for wildlife, for public health, and so on,” Biassioli said. This past summer, Supervisors asked staff to come up with more information about what it would take to fully adopt the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act, which gives localities more options to enforce and require stream buffers. Albemarle is not within the Tidewater region as defined by the Act. “We found that full adoption is an extremely resource and time intensive option relative to the anticipated benefits that we feel might be received,” Biassioli said. The first proposal under consideration would reintroduce a requirement that property owners retain buffers by creating a stream overlay district. “And I say reintroduce because this language which was originally modeled after the original language in the Bay Act was in our water protection ordinance prior to 2013 but currently retention of stream buffers is required during a land disturbing activity,” Biassioli said. Biassiloi said this would not require property owners to expand existing buffers if they are not to the requirement established. The zoning overlay would establish a list of existing uses allowed in the buffer areas. Other ideas under consideration include a program to fund riparian buffers, more oversight of septic fields, and greater incentives for installing Best Management Practices for mitigating the effect of agriculture on the watershed. USDA climate change grantsFinally today, Virginia will receive $778,000 in grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture from the Rural Energy for America program.

EPISODE #658 JFK: CONNECTING THE DOTS PT. 4 Richard welcomes a renowned JFK Assassination researcher who discusses Lee Harvey Oswald's alleged visit to Mexico City in September 1963. The day after Kennedy's assassination, the CIA claimed they had photographs and taped telephone conversations of Oswald in Mexico City trying to obtain the necessary documents that would allow him to return to the Soviet Union. Further, the CIA claimed to have a recording of a telephone conversation between Oswald and Valery Kostivkov, a KGB assassin who was stationed at the Soviet consulate in Mexico City. Conveniently, this information was not passed on to the FBI in Dallas prior to the murder of JFK. It was given to the Warren Commission who would then use this and other evidence to conclude Oswaldand Oswald alone was responsible for Kennedy's murder. However, DiEugenio reveals that despite the fact that both the Soviet and Cuban Consulates in Mexico City were heavily monitored by the FBI and the CIA, no reliable evidence was every presented proving Oswald was there. Guest:  James DiEugenio is one of the foremost researchers into the major assassinations of the 1960's. His first book: Destiny Betrayed, was an in depth look at the Garrison investigation.

This week, the gunman responsible for the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida pleaded guilty to 17 counts of murder and another 17 counts of attempted murder. The prosecutors are seeking the death penalty, but for now, the shooter must await a jury's decision on sentencing.  Shortly after the gunman pled, Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina was killed in the Parkland shooting, joined host Dave Anthony. Petty gave his reaction to the killer's plea and courtroom apology, what he believes can be done to keep kids safe at school and whether or not he will ever get closure.   The original interview was too long and we couldn't include all of it in our segment. On The FOX News Rundown EXTRA, you will hear our entire conversation with Ryan Petty and his thoughts on the killer, the debate over guns and how to prevent future school shootings
