Welcome to 2021: Insurrection, Mutation, and the Winding Road out of this Mess

Authors Betsy Gaines Quammen and David Quammen will draw on their corners of research to try to add some insight on what’s happening in America right now. From the roots of rebellion in the West, to the Capitol siege, to the dangers that might be coming from new variants of the virus: These things are not unconnected.
 
Betsy Gaines Quammen is a WildEarth Guardians board member and author of American Zion: Cliven Bundy, God & Public Lands in the West, the story of the ongoing feud between Mormon ranching family the Bundys, the federal government, and the American public. Historian Betsy Gaines Quammen examines the roots of the Bundys’ cowboy confrontations, and how history has shaped an often-dangerous mindset which today feeds the militia movement and threatens public lands, wild species, and American heritage.
 
David Quammen wrote Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic, seven years ago. A prescient book that discusses how the next disease cataclysm will be caused by a new virus coming to humans from wildlife, a phenomenon that experts call a “spillover.” In the book, he illuminates the dynamics of Ebola, SARS, bird flu, Lyme disease, and other emerging threats and tells the story of AIDS and its origins as it has never before been told.

Utah’s Refugee Youth and Mental Health: A Welcome Exploration

Well Beings and PBS Utah will stream a live virtual panel featuring local experts and youth titled “Utah’s Refugee Youth and Mental Health: A Welcome Exploration” on Tuesday, February 16th at 7:00 PM MT. Event Partner, Mental Healthy F.I.T., has worked with 4 refugee youth to explore their mental health through art during a workshop and has created a short documentary surrounding their mental health journey through art therapy.

 

An open online workshop was presented in early December covering mental health awareness, expressive arts, storytelling and communication. Participants learned to use images and symbols to tell their stories in order to discover new pathways to communication, wellness and transformation. 4 students went on to fully realize their creativity while their stories were documented for this event.

 

Join refugee youth, Mental Healthy F.I.T. and PBS Utah to watch the journey as part of a live streamed virtual event. A discussion about mental health, art, and healing, moderated by Dawood Saleh, will follow.

Even in the exploration boom of the 1800s, nobody dared to explore the terrain flowing through the Green and the Colorado Rivers.⁠

That is, nobody until Major John W. Powell said the 19th Century equivalent of “Hey man, hold my beer while I try this.”⁠

Today, we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2021 Blue Plate Awards! ⁠🎉⁠

These prizes honor the growers, food evangelists, grocers, servers, bakers, chefs, bartenders and restaurateurs who do more than put good food on the table—they make our community a better place to live. This year, just surviving as a local business deserves an award, but each of our Blue Plate winners did more than that. They made us grateful for every person involved in the essential act of feeding us.⁠ 🍽⁠

At the link in our bio, we have the full list of winners, a celebration of feats of COVID creativity and a tribute to restaurants we lost this year. If you’re hungry for more, pick up a copy on newsstands March 1! Plus, check out our Instagram for spotlights on some of the Blue Plate winners. ⁠

Just hours after being sworn in, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for a review of the boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. The monuments—designated by Barack Obama in 2016 and Bill Clinton in 1996—were reduced by roughly 2 million acres by former president Donald Trump, and the executive order is seen as move towards restoring the original boundaries.⁠
