When Police and Hospital Staff Collide Guest: Teneille Brown, JD, Professor of Law, University of Utah The incident took place at the end of July, but police body cam video released on Friday turned it into a national story. In it, you see a nurse in the burn unit at the University of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City explaining to a police officer that she can’t let him draw blood from an unconscious patient who was involved in a fatal traffic accident. The nurse has a supervisor on speakerphone helping her explain the hospital policy, but the police officer isn’t satisfied. Moments later he grabs the nurse roughly and puts her in handcuffs as she screams for help. Salt Lake City’s mayor and chief of police issued apologies after the video went viral. The police officer in the video has been placed on administrative leave and hospital staff say they’ve changed their policies: nurses will no longer be allowed to interact with law enforcement agents. There are still a lot of legal questions surrounding this incident. Deflating the Nuclear Football Guest: Tom Collina, Director of Policy, Ploughshares Fund North Korea claims to have tested a nuclear weapon over the weekend and now says it has the ability to launch one aboard a long-range missile that could strike the United States. In response, various US officials have sternly warned North Korea to stop its threats and they’ve not ruled out military action against North Korea. There’s no indication that would include launching a nuclear bomb at North Korea, but if President Trump wanted to, he could do it in the time it takes to send off a tweet. The nuclear codes are always at the President’s fingertips, no questions asked. As North Korea’s threats intensify the nuclear debate, there are renewed calls to restrict the unilateral power of the US President to launch the world’s deadliest weapon. When the Movie Is as Good as the Book Guest: Dennis Cutchins, PhD, Professor of English, Brigham Young University Theaters are already plugging movies that won’t be out until the holidays, including one directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh as the famous Inspector Poirot in "Murder on the Orient Express." Also coming out at the same time, just before Thanksgiving, is a film adaptation of the children’s novel, "Wonder." But will the movies live up to the beloved books that inspired them? How often does a director ruin a great story in bringing it to the screen? Stories with The Apple Seed Guest: Sam Payne, Host, The Apple Seed, BYUradio What Dogs Teach Us About Parenting Guest: Emily Bray, PhD, Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Arizona Canine Cognition Center, University of Arizona, Canine Companions for Independence Helicopter parenting may not be limited to overanxious, overly competitive modern parents. In fact, it may not even be limited to humans at all. Dogs have their own version of helicopter parenting, too. And a recent study from the University of Pennsylvania found that mother dogs who were "helicopter" parents raised pups who were less successful later in their training programs. From the Vaults: That’s A Wrap on a Career in the BYU Film Archives Guest: James D’Arc, Former Curator, Special Collections, Brigham Young University Harold B. Lee Library For our regular series “From the Vaults,” where we dive into the treasures held in Special Collections at the BYU Library, we have a special treat today. BYU has one of the world’s premiere collections of film artifacts, thanks to archivist James D’Arc, who has spent the last 41 years acquiring Hollywood history. The collection he’s amassed while working in BYU’s Special Collection is mindboggling. And last week, on his final day at BYU before retiring, James D’Arc gave us a private tour of the vault, in the basement of the BYU library.
