411: Health Care at Home, 10/29/2021

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 09:30

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small A lot of us had our first taste of remote medical care during the pandemic — telemedicine checkups performed right in our own homes. It has its advantages — no travel time, no waiting room germs, no need to find a babysitter or change out of our jammies. And it can help doctors reach more patients without creating more strain. Health systems across the country are thinking about bringing care right into patients’ homes, with ideas that go way beyond virtual visits — including everything from primary care check-ups to chemotherapy, and even hospital-level care. On this episode, we explore what it takes to bring medical services into people’s homes. We hear stories about a new push to provide chemo at home, what it would take to provide high-level care, and what it’s like working as a home health aide.

2021-10-22 What’s on Tap at COP26 in Glasgow

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 59:00

In a couple weeks, delegates from around the world are set to convene in Glasgow at the international climate summit known as COP26 ideally to hammer out commitments to reduce carbon emissions in hopes of avoiding the worst impacts of climate disruption. 

Kate Larsen, a director at the research firm Rhodium Group, says the meeting will demonstrate whether voluntary commitments under the Paris agreement are working, and whether countries are willing and able to make additional commitments to reduce emissions even further in the 2030 timeline.  

“Are countries hearing the science and the activists and watching what industry is doing? And are they taking that next step in a serious way?”

Larsen says while these climate negotiations no longer require countries to come together to write treaty agreements, there is still significant pressure for leaders to demonstrate they are taking action toward a net zero future not just by midcentury as most have promised, but concrete steps they will take in the next decade. 

“And so, you'll see some heads of states and other leaders twisting each other's arms to try to go even further,” Larsen says.

Albert Cheung, London-based head of global analysis for the research firm BloombergNEF, says it’s important that the U.S. is back at the climate table this year, after withdrawing from the Paris agreement under President Trump. 

We can’t get anyone near global net zero without the U.S. taking real action.  And I think it matters as well because the developing world won’t act if the rich world doesn’t.” However, Cheung adds that the U.S. has not demonstrated itself to be a constant climate actor in the past, and this year its role may be a bit less important.

“In the intervening four years while the U.S. was absent, a lot changed.  A lot of other countries and regions: China, Japan, Korea, Europe all pledged to get to net zero.  They’re all looking at policies and how to get there.”

China has pledged to be net zero by 2060 ten years later than most countries and the U.S. and most of the world would like to see China do more. But Cheung says China’s recent pledge to stop financing overseas coal is a significant step, and demonstrates that President Xi Jinping is responsive to the global climate discussion. 

There’s been increasing pressure on organizers of COP26 to ensure fair and equitable representation of countries in the Global South particularly those already facing climate impacts who will continue to suffer as the world tries to slow the effects of fossil-fuel-driven climate disruption. 

Mitzi Jonelle Tan is a full-time climate justice activist based in the Philippines. 

“How do you expect to have a climate conference where you have climate policies being decided on by people who have never seen or even faced any semblance of the climate crisis?” she says. “And that’s why it’s so important that we have people from the most affected areas in these climate negotiations. And then going beyond representation, it's not just about having people there but listening to people who are there. Making sure that the changes that happen are because of the people who are most affected because it's been way too long...emissions are still rising, people are still suffering.” 

She and others want to see countries from the Global North take responsibility for their emissions. 

“Climate finance isn't help; it’s reparations. They caused this, they have to pay. They have the climate debt to the Global South and to humanity.”

While she’s hopeful for some strong commitments and pledges at COP26, she says climate justice is a continuous process that doesn’t start or end at that conference.

Sock it to Me (#1557)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00

Awww_logo_color_square Baseball slang collected during the 1930s includes fishing trip for "taking a swing at a bad ball," pour the pine for "to hit a good ball solidly," and the derisive term collisions for "college players."

You bet your sweet bippy! meaning "Definitely!" comes from a large cache of catchphrases from the TV variety series "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," which was wildly popular in the late 1960s. The bippy in this case was a euphemism for "butt." Other phrases made famous on "Laugh-In" included The devil made me do it, Look that up in your Funk & Wagnalls, and Sock it to me!, the last of which was famously uttered on the show in a cameo by President Richard M. Nixon.

A longtime baseball umpire wonders why the slang phrase can of corn refers to "an easily caught pop fly ball." Another term for "a high fly ball" is rainmaker, suggesting that the ball goes up so far that it's capable of causing a cloudburst.

In sports slang, a horse-collar is "a score of zero," and to horse-collar an opponent is "to hold them scoreless."

Quiz John Chaneski's brain teaser this week is much ado about nothing. For example, a TV series was originally pitched as a sitcom about how a comedian gets his material, but later an  in-joke led people to believe the show was about nothing. Which show is it?

At a Seattle, Washington, tech company, Vivian finds that she and her fellow employees are continually vexed by this question: Does bimonthly mean "once every two weeks" or "once every two months"?

Following our conversation about listeners' favorite independent bookstore names, a Massachusetts listener shares hers: Yellow Umbrella Books in Chatham, Massachusetts.

In southeastern Virginia, a come-here is "an outsider" or "someone who recently moved to the area."

Mark from Chicago, Illinois wonders: Why do some people use the term backslash to refer to a forward slash when giving a website address? Terms for that mark in other contexts are virgule, from the Latin for "twig," and solidus.

As a noun, respair means "the return of hope after a period of despair." As a verb, respair means "to have hope again." Although both forms are rare and obsolete, they seem ripe for reviving. Respair is among dozens of uplifting terms collected in Paul Anthony Jones's new book The Cabinet of Calm: Soothing Words for Troubled Times. (Bookshop|Amazon) Other heartening words include meliorism, "the belief that the world, or society, may be improved and suffering alleviated through rightly directed human effort," and cultellation, originally a surveyors' term, which denotes "the solution of a problem by dealing with it piecemeal," from Latin cultellus, meaning "knife." 

Two close friends from Richmond, Kentucky, call to share their hilarious dispute about how to correctly describe the one of them who's always to blame for something. Is she the fault default or the default fault?

The Cabinet of Calm: Soothing Words for Troubled Times (Bookshop|Amazon) includes the term worldcraft, meaning "the unique skills, wisdom and experience that an older person has amassed in their lifetime."

Nick from San Antonio, Texas, says his father used to use the word tiffin to denote a meal or snack made of leftovers. It's a word borrowed from Indian English which was itself borrowed from the English verb tiff, which means "to eat or to drink, or to drink slowly."

OHR156: OHR Presents: Bluegrass!, 11/1/2021

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Becky_buller_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, a boisterous bounty of Bluegrass bands both regional and international recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with these peppy pickers.

In the 1940’s, Kentucky mandolinist Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys band coined a brand new sound onto the American popular music landscape.  Named after Monroe’s band, this new “bluegrass” music was an evolution of the traditional old-time music of Appalachia.  Drawing its roots from the same English, Scottish and Irish ballads and dances as early Appalachian folk music, bluegrass also utilizes the same type of acoustic stringed instruments.  Banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, dobro, and upright acoustic bass are the standard tools for bluegrass.  Add to those a ferocious driving tempo, brilliant virtuosity, and a style of singing that Bill Monroe described as a “high lonesome sound” and you’ve got bluegrass!

Featured in this episode of Ozark Highlands Radio are:  Nashville based multiple IBMA award winners the Becky Buller Band; Grammy nominated Austin, Texas progressive bluegrass sensation Wood & Wire; Ozark Original ACMA award winning family bluegrass band The Keisler Brothers; Pikeville, Kentucky IBMA award winner and the most soulful voice in bluegrass today, Dave Adkins; Newark, Arkansas’ own three finger banjo Jedi Adam Fudge; Ozark Original mandolinist and Acoustic Music Talk podcast host Brad Apple; Bethesda, Maryland progressive bluegrass icons Seldom Scene.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1980 archival recording of bluegrass legend Buck White performing the traditional song “More Pretty Girls than One,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Author, folklorist and songwriter Charley Sandage presents an historical portrait of the people, events and indomitable spirit of Ozark culture that resulted in the creation of the Ozark Folk Center State Park and its enduring legacy of music and craft.  In this episode, Charley speaks with Ozark Folk Center wood worker Joe Roe about the subtleties of bow making.

After new episodes drop, fans of TV shows from The Bachelor to Grey’s Anatomy take to social media to dissect what they just saw. And the twittersphere isn’t just venting about plot twists and love interests--sometimes there are bigger issues at hand. Dr. Morgan Smalls says that shows like Insecure and Being Mary Jane that feature Black women protagonists and majority Black casts inspire important conversations about race on social media. And: Disney princesses can be a bit of a scapegoat for what’s wrong with representations of women in movies. One of the problems: they don’t have many healthy female relationships. Jessica Stanley talks about the toxic relationships of wicked stepsisters and evil witches and how modern Disney movies are doing better.

Living Planet: Walk the Walk


Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.



Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green


The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.


Canada's First Nations vs. tar sands pipeline


Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

The CRISPR Challenge (rerun)

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 59:00

Screen_shot_2021-10-21_at_10 The CRISPR challenge is back—first to grasp, then how to apply the biggest scientific breakthrough of our century so far. You remember CRISPR: nature’s own repair kit, guarding your genetic code, cell by cell, tuning up your DNA. Biologists had learned before CRISPR how to read the coded map of genes that make you a one-of-a-kind human being. What CRISPR shows them is how to write the code, as well, and rewrite yours, for this lifetime and all the generations that come after you. Then come the questions: change what, and why? Risks, side-effects, and mysteries: does anyone know enough about the infinitely complex human brain to tweak it?

CRISPR, since we last talked about it, has won a Nobel prize for the two scientists who first figured out how to apply the miracle molecule to the human genome and the human condition. And just this week, from our guest, the tireless biographer Walter Isaacson, CRISPR gets heroic treatment in hard covers for the same breakthrough biologists. For most of us, the acronym CRISPR is code for the deepest issues we don’t know how to talk about. But Walter Isaacson could change that some, as the irresistible storyteller about the kinds of people Apple puts on its “Think Different” billboards: Ben Franklin and Albert Einstein, Apple’s own Steve Jobs, and back a few centuries Leonardo da Vinci, the original Renaissance man. The new Isaacson epic, titled The Code Breaker, centers on the first woman and only the second living person in Isaacson’s Hall of Fame. His subtitle is Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race
