387: Up in Smoke, 5/14/2021

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 58:59

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small The patch, the gum, lozenges, medication — it seems like there are lots of ways to quit smoking. But for some people, none of them work, and they have to head off the beaten path to find something that’ll help them quit. On this episode, we take a look at some of the ways people have used to quit smoking, why they work — or don’t — and what can get in the way. We hear stories about Allen Carr, the man behind "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking," and his quest to gain acceptance from the scientific mainstream; American Indians’ deep cultural connection to tobacco, and how it’s been exploited; and the truth behind the effects of vaping on our health, and what that means for ex-smokers.

2021-05-14 Journey of a Former Coal Miner

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


Host: Greg Dalton


Nick Mullins, former fifth-generation coal miner, blogger, Thoughts of a Coal Miner
Audrea Lim, Journalist & Editor, The World We Need, Stories and Lessons from America’s Unsung Environmental Movement

James Coleman, City Councilor, South San Francisco

Nick Mullins is a former fifth-generation coal miner from Clintwood, Virginia and creator of the blog, Thoughts of a Coal Miner. Growing up, his father taught him to love the woods that surrounded them.

“He'd take me and my brother to the top of the ridge line, show us the trees. We would play in the streams. I really got really connected to nature that way,” Mullins says.

As a kid, Mullins says he had a lot of pride and respect for his forefathers who supported their family by working in the coal mines. But as he grew older, his views of the industry that employed his family changed. When he was 19 years old, a coal company opened a mine on the mountain above his family home.

“It devastated me,” he said. “They had just obliterated all the oaks and all the poplars and it didn't look like the same place. And then as the months continued, they started stripping away the top soils and it just became, as some people have said, like a moonscape.” 

Mullins became an underground coal miner himself, because he says the “mono-economy of coal” meant there were few other options for a steady paycheck and good benefits. But he says that his experience of losing a natural place special to his family was one factor that drove him to leave the mines and become an activist against mountaintop removal. 

He says he’s been frustrated by the biases on all sides of the issue, from wealthy and privileged outsider environmentalists and academics who presume to understand the working-class life of a coal miner to the same coal miner who responds to such activism with “anti-environmentalism, anti-intellectualism.”

His advice to the larger environmental groups is to provide money, resources and trust to local grassroots activists. 

“Have faith that they can and will make change in their communities if they’re provided the resources,” he says.

Mullins is one of many grassroots activists featured in the book, The World We Need: Stories and Lessons from America's Unsung Environmental Movement. 

The book’s editor, Audrea Lim, says the goal was to push against the tide of coverage focused on large environmental groups. Instead, she sought to highlight people often working in their own communities to combat pollution and build toward a cleaner and more equitable society. Lim says those efforts are diverse, from housing and gentrification to local food systems and sustainable businesses. 

“The thing about grassroots activism, apart from the stereotype, is that it's really just people in a community who sort of see a problem — whether that’s refineries being built in their neighborhood or a community garden because they don't have access to food — and then they get together on their own and tried to find a solution to it,” Lim says. “It’s really as simple as that.”

Four years ago, James Coleman was a high school senior and climate activist in South San Francisco, an industrial city distinct from its more famous neighbor. Now he’s a city council member finishing up a degree in regenerative biology at Harvard. 

He says he continues to see a lot of tension between science and politics, especially during the pandemic.

“I think it's really important that scientists speak out and say that, you know, these are undeniable facts, and these facts need to be taken as facts and not politicized by whatever's happening in the national discourse,” Coleman says. 

Coleman says the combination of the racial justice movement in 2020 and the “dismissive” response from current city council to the concerns of him and other young activists motivated him to run for office. Now, somewhat to his surprise, he’s on the other side of the room.

“Growing up I never saw myself as an elected official. I always saw myself as an activist because that’s what I did in high school, that’s the role that I had as a college student.  I always saw myself as someone who would be holding elected officials accountable, not necessarily being the one in office being held accountable,” he says.

Climate change is a big part of his platform. He says a lot of people are working to get more young activists into office, even though activists and elected officials play fundamentally different roles: 

“A lot of activists can inform elected officials like [me] about the various issues that the community is concerned about,” Coleman says. “It’s their job to be idealistic, to have the vision, and it's my job to implement that vision and make it possible.”

Love Bites (#1569)

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

Awww_logo_color_square On our Facebook group, listeners play a game imagining what kind of plants might grow in a garden tended by various types of people. For example, a veterinarian might plant dogwood and catnip, and an ophthalmologist could plant irises. What might a nurse plant?

Pearline from Fort Worth, Texas, wonders why anyone would ever advise that You can't have your cake and eat it too. Like so many English phrases, it doesn't pay to analyze the literal meaning too closely.

Ron from Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, shares a family word he learned from his college roommate: asyou. The word asyou denotes "the second or third stair on the staircase" -- in other words, the stair where you put things to remember to take them with you as you go upstairs.

What's the origin of the slang term book it!, meaning "depart quickly"? Since slang terms often cross-pollinate, it's possible that by the 1960s and 1970s this expression formed at the confluence of three other slang terms: bookity-bookity, first used in the 1860s to suggest the sound of running hooves; to boogie, meaning "to dance" or "move quickly"; and bug out, a slang term from the 1950s, meaning "to leave in a hurry."

After studying the periodic table, Quiz Guy John Chaneski has concocted a brain teaser about names for the elements. For example, which elements are named for the sun and moon respectively?

Jenny from Portland, Oregon, is fascinated by the language of falconers. In falconry, the word bate means "to flap the wings impatiently." A similarly spelled verb, which has nothing to do with falconry, figures in the expression to wait with bated breath, meaning "to hold one's breath in watchful anticipation." This bate is a shortened form of the verb abate, meaning "to put an end to." Both the bate from falconry and the bate in bated breath share a common ancestor in the Latin word battuere, which means "to beat" or "to knock." Another word that does come from falconry is the verb to bat as in to bat one's eyes. It's formed from the bate that refers to flapping.

Tim and Allison Moyer of Ingram, Texas, care for lots of feral cats in their neighborhood, and refer to them by various names. Often they eventually shorten those names to just initial letters. For example, Calico Kitty becomes simply CK. Is there a word for such shortenings besides initialism? The Moyers like to call them acronames.

The word filibuster has a colorful etymology. It goes back to a Dutch word, vrijbuiter, which means "plunderer," or "robber," the source also of the English word freebooter, or "pirate," and a linguistic relative of English booty, or "spoils." In Spanish, the Dutch term morphed into filibustero, and this term was later Anglicized as filibuster. Eventually, filibuster came to apply to the practice of Congressional representatives "hijacking legislation" with lengthy speeches.

Maggie in Spring Valley, New York, recalls her father's advice: Don't go visiting with one arm longer than the other. In other words, don't arrive as a guest without some small gift for your hosts. The original expression appears to come from Ireland, where it appeared in the 1850s as Don't go visiting with one arm as long as the other. A similar idea is expressed in the admonition Ring the door with your elbow.

On our Facebook group, listeners are playfully crowdsourcing what people in different professions might punningly  plant. For example, what kind of fruit tree might twins cultivate? What type of flower might be planted by a professional mime?

A New York Times article about that trendy accessory, the brooch, prompts a question: How do you pronounce brooch? Does it rhyme with pooch or coach? It's more commonly pronounced to rhyme with coach, although some dictionaries do countenance the other pronunciation as well.
Broach goes back to a Latin word that means "long needle," and arrived in an Old French word for "needle," broche. That's also where we get the notion of broaching a subject, from the idea of piercing or penetrating something with a sharp instrument. Is there a word you have to keep looking up again and again because you can't remember how it's pronounced? How about the word askance?

The language of guided meditation prompts a call from Laura Davidson of San Jose, California, Is there a special reason those leading a guided meditation or yoga class so often speak in present participles, using phrases like sitting comfortably and breathing deeply, rather than using simple imperatives such as Sit comfortably and Breathe deeply? This kind of discourse, known as the politeness progressive, has the effect of inviting listeners to an experience and allowing each individual lots of leeway to find what actions, positions, and states of mind work best and feel most comfortable for them.

On our Facebook group, members are jokingly linking professions with plants in the garden: What kind of herb might a clockmaker grow?

Erin in Austin, Texas, wants to know: Why do we say two people in contentious disagreement are at loggerheads?

Jase in Austin, Texas, knows that hickey means a "love bite" or "mark left on the skin," and doo-hickey refers to a small object that the speaker can't recall the name of, but why would anyone refer to a hickey in the power grid during a power outage across his state. It turns out that hickey used in that last sense is particular to journalist Ross Ramsey of the Texas Tribune. In printer's slang, a hickey is a blemish of some sort.

OHR020: OHR Presents: "The Howlin' Brothers", 5/17/2021

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

Howlin__brothers_2021_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, Ark.  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, the unconventional folk-blues-rock-bluegrass trio “The Howlin’ Brothers” perform live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with “The Howlin’ Brothers.”

“The Howlin’ Brothers” are Ian Craft, Ben Plasse, and Jared Green.  The trio has a wide ranging appeal as evidenced by their popular performance at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Combining banjo, fiddle, guitar and upright bass, they perform traditional and original music with a sound familiar to fans of old time, roots, and Americana styles.  Of note is fiddler and banjo player Ian Craft, as he could be creating a new style of hybrid banjo playing.

Renowned folk musicians Aubrey Atwater & Elwood Donnelly profile influential folk music icons Jean Ritchie and the Ritchie Family, as well as explore the traditional Appalachian music and dance that the Ritchie Family helped to perpetuate into the modern American folk lexicon.  This episode focuses on memories of Bayless Ritchie, and features Aubrey & Elwood’s performance of the traditional song “I am a Foreign Lander.”

Mark Jones' “From the Vault” segment features a rare recording of Ozark originals Aubrey Richardson & Mike McGee performing the traditional folk song “Cluck Ole Hen,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

720: The Bad Place, 5/15/2021

From Reveal | Part of the Reveal Weekly series | 59:00


The graffiti says it all: “This is a bad place.” Why do states send children to facilities run by Sequel, after dozens of cases of abuse?

The vacant building that once housed the Riverside Academy in Wichita, Kansas, was covered in haunting graffiti: “Burn this place.” “Youth were abused here … systematically.” “This is a bad place.” The facility, run by the for-profit company Sequel Youth & Family Services, promised to help kids with behavioral problems. But state officials had cited the facility dozens of times for problems including excessive force by staff, poor supervision and neglect.  

Riverside was just one residential treatment center run by Sequel. In a yearlong investigation, APM Reports found the company profited by taking in some of the most difficult-to-treat children and providing them with care from low-paid, low-skilled employees. The result has been dozens of cases of physical violence, sexual assault and improper restraints. Despite repeated scandals, many states and counties continue to send kids to Sequel for one central reason: They have little choice.

For much of its 20 year history, Sequel was able to avoid public scrutiny. But that changed recently in Oregon, when State Senator Sara Gesler began to investigate the conditions of kids the state placed under the company’s care. What she found led to Oregon demanding change and eventually severing ties with Sequel. 

This is an update of an episode that originally aired on 11/21/20.

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.

Pandemic Premonitions

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

Lewis_small A year and a half into the COVID story, notice the many unknowns, and one big known. Even now, nobody can tell you absolutely whether the infectious virus might have leaked, or been leaked, from a Chinese lab in Wuhan. No one’s quite explained, broadly, why the people and governments in East Asia coped so much more effectively with COVID than Team West in Europe and the US. In the hindsight wisdom on COVID, what we do know is that nobody will write the story better than Michael Lewis, with more surprises (like George W. Bush’s foresight) and more heroes you hadn’t heard of before and now may never forget. Michael Lewis wrote Moneyball about big-league baseball, and The Big Short about the housing bubble; on the COVID crisis, he’s playing detective for the rest of us.

What the writer Michael Lewis delivers in book after book is not history exactly, and not hard science. It’s people, with their own ways of seeing baseball, Wall Street and now COVID. I read Michael Lewis as a nonfiction novelist of our American condition, and he’s done it again in his pandemic story, The Premonition, with his kind of characters out of the COVID cast – not Dr. Fauci and not Donald Trump, but doctors, one by one, who see through healthcare systems the way Billy Beane saw through big-league baseball, the way the short-sellers saw through the housing bubble in The Big Short. And now he gives us Charity Dean, M.D., public health doc in Santa Barbara, California, who saw herself as a dragon, at war with a pandemic that she knew was coming a week before the virus knew. Then the reflective, effective doctor and poet Richard Hatchett; then this genius of a people-watcher Carter Mecher at the V.A., the doc with dirt under his fingernails.
