Jefferson 102 – This week on “The Thomas Jefferson Hour”

This week Thomas Jefferson Hour creator Clay S. Jenkinson presents part two in a series of biographical shows about the life of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson’s young life is discussed including his early education and the formation of his character. Mentioned is a letter Jefferson wrote on February 1, 1770 to John Page about Dabney Carr’s modesty. The relevant piece is this.

“This friend of ours, Page, in a very small house, with a table, half a dozen chairs, and one or two servants, is the happiest man in the universe. He possesses truly the art of extracting comfort from things the most trivial. Every incident in life he so takes to render it a source of pleasure. With as much benevolence as the heart of man will hold, but with an utter neglect of the costly apparatus of life, he exhibits to the world a new phenomenon in philosophy, the Samian sage in the tub of the Cynic.”

The Glier Violin – This week on “The Thomas Jefferson Hour”

The Glier Violin – This week on “The Thomas Jefferson Hour”

This week on the Thomas Jefferson Hour we speak with Adam Birce; the owner and operator of Four Strings violin shop in Richmond, VA. Adam has a client who brought in a very interesting Glier violin for repair. The violin dates to Jefferson’s time and Adam believes it’s possible that a connection exists.

According to Adam “The instrument in question was made sometime between 1790 and 1840 by a maker from Neukirchen, Germany by the name of August Glier. I have little doubt that this instrument is a genuine article as it is made to a much higher standard than a typical “Saxon” violin, it’s wood and varnish is of the appropriate age, and indeed, this violin possesses it’s original label. There would be no reason to replicate an instrument made in this time period and from this maker as historically they aren’t particularly valuable.”

Health in the Heart and Mind on “With Good Reason”

Sudden death in young people is rare, but Matthew Thomas and Matthew Wolf say that through early detection of inherited heart conditions, better precautions can be taken. And: Depression affects almost 15 million American adults, yet doctors still don’t know much about how it works. Researcher Pearl Chiu says that it may be possible to make a personalized diagnosis of depression through brain imaging. Plus: Lisa Ellison’s brother was plagued with mental health issues until age 20, when he committed an awful crime and then took his own life. Lisa graduated from the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at James Madison University and is now an advocate for suicide prevention and mental health support.

Later in the show: HIV infections are rising among a surprising segment of the population–African Americans over the age of 50.  John Fife is working to combat this disturbing trend.  And: Millions of people in developing countries go blind due to cataracts because there aren’t enough surgeons trained in the five-minute procedure to remove them. Glenn Strauss is designing a simulator that will train 30,000 who could give millions the life-changing operation.

“With Good Reason” is available as both an hour and half hour show. For more information, click HERE.
