Why is Spain's Covid-19 vaccine rollout going so slowly?
"Go to Spain, now one of the hardest hit countries in Europe when the first wave of covert 19 struck last year on although the third wave has hit the country later than many of its neighbors, Spain is now starting to feel its force. With nearly 60,000 deaths registered In addition, Spain is also being affected by the controversy surrounding vaccine does deliveries in Europe Guy head coach reports now from Madrid in Madrid's Isabel Sandal hospital healthcare staff for being vaccinated among them is Claudia Lopez in working here in the candle in the hospital, a malady I'm working a sinner's. I'm really very excited because I had my second boxing on. I'm feeling really well at the moment. This is very important for everyone to have the vaccine. Because I think this is the beginning off the off the end off the carpet, health care workers and residents of care homes and their carers have bean those receiving the jab in recent weeks. Problems with vaccine deliveries in the European Union have meant that the administration of doses is being prioritized even more than before. In Madrid. Vaccine shortages mean that only second follow up jabs are currently being administered how the ADM article is a medical director of the hospital here in Madrid, for example. We are not going to be able to meet our plan. That he lay off the vaccination program that report cushion is going to affect going toe be visible on the number of patients are going to get infected. And on the number of bets. This'll hospital was built in only three months in response to the covert crisis. It opened in December, but it's already under strain. The third wave of Corona virus hit Spain Hard after Christmas, his family gatherings over the festive period transferred into soaring infection rates. Rise in cases now appears to be easing off again in public, Danica But Fernando C'mon, the government's head of medical emergencies, has warned that the highly contagious British strain of covert will be the dominant one in Spain within the next few weeks. Controversy in Europe over deliveries of vaccine doses has had relatively little political impact here in Spain, but there has been outraged you to a serious of scandals caused by public figures who have apparently used their position in order to jump the queue and get vaccinated early. Mayors of several small towns are among those implicated on the head of the armed forces, Miguel and Columbia. Roya resigned recently after it emerged he had received the vaccine. These cases have angered ordinary Spaniards. It's another winter, huh? This is how this race it's a social disgrace on a problem we have in Spain. I don't know if this happens in other countries. It is the kind of thing that you hear about in other areas of life. But this time it's more visible. Everybody that I'm saying it's just really tired of the situation. We are old. Too sick of it, and we don't see the end and I think it's yes, it's really upsetting on it said we'll have sitting that's like saying that you have to act really responsible.

"Jones steve hadley was bush's national security advisor. Whether the new obama administration preferred that bush make the trip decision and take the heat or hold off and the new team opted for the second course. The point was this was a transition and granted made easier gates was staying over where there was consultation and there was a concern. What would the world think if one president boxed in another president now we have one american president boxing in another american president. What message does that send to the world. Admiral mullen one of the things that i learned the at i add is gonna wanna you'd like to do all you can to not boxing the president to give the pratt any president as many options and as much space as possible so this is obviously the opposite a case right now in fact i thought president bush set the tone for these you you mentioned but also a handful of other issues that i saw of it that were decisions we're going to be impactful on the next president and it was his desire that is president bush can make sure that president obama had a vote specifically an example that you lay out is is one significant example specifically so it appears that the current administration is trying to lock in as many options as as many issues as possible that to make it much more difficult for president elect by to govern and actually historically that has just never been the case. I worry that you know in a time where you just went through You know where we are on the on the The pandemic specifically a the challenge we have in the economy and national security issues. Do not wait. That's going to be a particularly difficult transition in that arena. Actually having started three weeks lake so it it is. I think our allies are printed.

"But there hasn't been a lot what is what is your sense of wind. Should we expect school. Age kids to be able to get vaccinated. Are we looking at the summer. Is that going to be a longer period of time here. Well traditionally chuck well the answer to the direct answer to your question. It's going to be months. And the reason is traditionally when you have a situation like a new vaccine you wanna make sure because children as well as pregnant women of vulnerable so before you put it into the children. You're gonna wanna make sure you have a degree of efficacy and safety that established in an adult population particularly an adult normal population. Then there are ways to get children vaccine by. Let's say maybe in january and again this is. My estimate may not be exactly that that you go ahead and you do. What's called a phase one in the face to way trial in children. In other words you find out. Is it safe in children. And does it induce the kind of immune response that's comparable to that in adults an immune response that you know protects adults and then what you could do is you can do a study. What's called a bridging study. You can say okay now. We have safety in the children. We have comparable in agenda city namely the same type of immune response. We can get this expeditiously approved for the children before going through a thirty thousand person trial that may take a a a longer period of time. So we're gonna start the process very likely in january to get to the children sooner rather than later if someone had covert nineteen they get vaccinated. He know the answer is very likely. Yes when when the trials were done the moderna trials and other trials and we looked at the data. There were people who when you looked at their antibody response. They actually gave indication that they had already been infected and actually recovered quite well and at the time of the vaccine study they were actually well in normal as it were and yet they still got vaccinated since we don't know the durability of protection from someone who has already been infected had long that protection lasts. It would not be surprising that we would be vaccinating. People who have recovered from covid nineteen given the You've admittedly said this are are sort of rough rollout of testing strategy in this country arguably we still don't have you know we're still dealing with testing strategy that are prioritize sports leagues over healthcare workers at times But let me ask you this. Why should we feel confident. That vaccine distribution will go smoothly considering frankly how smoothly testing went. Well the reason that that we should feel more confident about that Chuck is that we have a long long history of the distribution of vaccines. I mean i. It's not to the extent that you giving it to three hundred million people but every year the system is set up in the relationship between the cdc and the state and local health authorities that they distribute eighty million. No more vaccines every year. So isn't something that they've done just for the first time. Obviously you're going to want to scale it up because the numbers are going to be greater but there are a couple of aspects to getting vaccine into the arm of someone who needs it. One is to get transported from the place where it's made and stored to the local state and city areas that's being handled by general gusts perna and the military and the transport of that. Once it gets there it's the state and local authorities who are responsible for the distribution so there are a couple of phases. The part about three hundred million doses. Getting ship is going to be taken care of by people who know how to do that. The point at the at the distal land namely getting into people's arms is going to be more challenging than just the regular flu season. I think you'd be foolish to deny that. But i think it's going to be able to be done because the local people have done that in the past. Hopefully they'll get the resources to help them to do that. President biden calls you up dr fauci. What's the first thing you say to him. He says what i needed. I needed to handle. What's the first thing you want me to do. Dr fauci what do you say to them you know. I think they're going to be a couple of things. I think it's going to be continuing to make sure that vaccines get distributed in an efficient and equitable way. I think that's really very important. I also have been together with dr burks. Have been saying that you know. They're two types of testings or a couple of types of testing more than two but one is the testing for a situation. Where you wanna find out this person infected and can we be able to do good identification isolation and contact tracing and then there's the broader testing namely one. That's less sensitive but that's testing people who are not symptomatic namely a much broader blanket over the country in a way that's easy that's cheap is even a home test. I'm going to be pushing for that. Because i think we when you really allow us to know in a very quick way what the patrons of infection is in any given day. I think that's going to be very important because the virus is being spread throughout the country by people without symptoms. So we've got to go beyond the symptomatic people and get a better understanding of the symptomatic transmission every day. When i make a right turn to come into the office. When i do come into the office. There's a big sign that says. Thank you dr fauci. Let me just say the same thing right now. Thank you dr. fauci appreciate you. Coming on Sharing your perspective with us. Thank you very much. Thank you for having the you got it when.

Trump threatens school funding, demands new CDC guidelines amid reopening battle
"The president wearing a mask in public for the first time at Walter. Reed on Saturday faces a leadership crisis of his own making with new use cases spiking more than seventy, one, thousand on Friday and daily death tolls in Arizona, South Carolina and Texas up by more than one hundred percent in the past month. The worst is yet to come. Come as we work our way through that massive increase and people testing positive Mr. trump is at odds with his top infectious disease expert on the trajectory of the virus. The current state is really not good. We are still knee deep in the first wave of this Dr Out. She's a nice man, but he's made a Lotta mistakes of the federal response as a country. When you compare us to other countries I don't think you can say we're doing great. We're just not is the united.

Fine over a period of time, and on the death, rate or mortality rate is right now at a level that. People, don't talk about, but it's down ten fold ten fold. It's a false narrative to take comfort in in a lower rate of death and president. Trump is threatening to make the already difficult debate over school reopenings, his latest front of the culture wars after the CDC published new guidelines Mr. trump called them very tough and expensive within hours. The prison said today. We don't want the guidance to be too tough. and. That's the reason why next week. CDC's going to be issuing a new set of tools. The president warned may cut off funding if not open pointing to democratic governors. They don't want to open because they think it will help them on November third. I think it's GonNa hurt them on November third. Open your schools I don't see how we do anything, but remote education of the federal government doesn't step in now with less than four months until the presidential election. Mr Trump finds himself under siege. To conservative justices he appointed, joined the Supreme Court majority to dismiss his claim to absolute immunity from investigators, seeking his tax returns is a political witch. The likes of which nobody's ever seen before a tell all book by his niece hits bookstores this week near reaction to Mary. Trump's books and many republicans worry as political standing will hurt the party down the ballot in November late on Friday. Perhaps looking to his post-presidency, MR trump commuted the sentence of his longtime friend campaign advisor Roger Stone who was convicted of lying to Congress, witness, tampering and obstruction all to protect the president, and the president has saved my life, and he's giving me the opportunity to fight for vindication.

Practical Decision Making
"Today I WanNa talk to you guys about decision making as much as I can from a practical perspective. Because I think that you know. There's a light instructor renewal courses and there's when I'm talking to a room full of. Cf is we always say well. When should you start teaching? Adm and and the answer. The question is from day one right but it's really really hard thing to teach and by the way. Adm is Aaron article. Decision-making I don't take that for granted anymore. I hate when people use acronyms and I don't know what they are. Some pilots had never heard of him actually was in a room full of. Cf is some backwards like what's ADM so it's like okay. We can't take anything for granted but decision making is a really hard thing to teach and I always tell. Cf is one of the hardest. Parts of our job is on day one. We do everything and it's like a steady progressive poll out of equation and on the last day. Theoretically were doing nothing right so we're transferring this ninety one point three pilot in command decision making ability to a student in a perfect world but one of the main challenges of doing that is in training. We do what I call flying in a fishbowl. Say that very affectionately by the way. I love my fishbowl. But it's like San Francisco my little plastic castle. And this is my fishbowl. And we don't leave it very often. You know so in training can say to yourself. I make great decisions. You know like the wind is blowing strong today. How about we scrub the flight? And it's okay great. We scrubbed the flight but in reality as much as that's good stuff like teaching yourself to turn around walk away. Live the fire another day. That's all great. I'm not discouraging out on any level but you get out into the real world things become a lot more complex and we're GONNA go through some systems and some tricks that I can give. You possibly will help you make better decisions. Kinda give you for me like what? What is this sort of nightmare scenario? Not Really A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO. But a tough one. I had two students both of whom were Training California. And both who did my actually. I don't know where they did their privates but I did their instrument in California this is I don't know ten years ago and So I knew they both understood my processes of standardization and personal minimums and all that sort of stuff that I outlined in my setting standard all the stuff that I teach and I knew they knew that so they say to me one day. Hey we're going to go buy one seventy two actually. There's they weren't actually buying it somebody else's binding to one they were. GonNa go pick them up so my two guys in one plane and two other guys that they knew in the other plane they were going to go out to Virginia in the summertime and fly these airplanes all the way back to California and I joked that it's my nightmare scenario. Because that's that's a that's a long flight that's a lot of time in the airplane and for a Stra California pilot. There's a lot of weather you might encounter in the summertime between Virginia and California that maybe never seen before so the funny part of the call was. Hey can we take you out and buy launch and you can maybe give some pointers on what we should how we should think about this. So I had a lunch. I had like one hour to figure out. What am I going to say to these guys? One of my going to tell them that might make them safer. That might make a difference and the only thing I could really come up with from my own experience that I could cover in an hour that they would actually remember was. There's GonNa come a time where you guys are having a discussion like you're not sure what to do. You're not sure if you should press on to the next airport. You're not sure if you should circumnavigate a line of rain showers tipping my head Scott Online and rainshowers there. You have some decision to make and when you have to make that decision my my best advice you the thing that I could maybe give you. That will help you in one hour of lunch over. Mcdonald's or doing is land the airplane and have that discussion in the pilot's lounge and make that decision on the ground and if the right decision is to continue flying get back in the airplane and flying. That's a piece of cake but it's Q. Easy to sort of continue with the momentum of an airplane moving along at one hundred twenty nine. You're seeing all these various options and can make decision making very difficult so just getting yourself to slow down. In the decision making process can be incredibly powerful

"This on Friday January seventeenth and it depicts a stunning scene of the President United States. Going to get a briefing at the Pentagon and it's something along the lines of a tutorial that various military leaders were going to give him in cabinet. Secretaries were there including the Secretary of Defense Secretary of state. The vice president and it culminates in according to the reporting tirade by the president against the generals among others in the room in which he among other things says quote. I wouldn't go to war with people and then says you're a bunch of dopes and babies which didn't go over well in the room. Have you seen. Do you have a reaction to that. I have and and I am stunned and unfortunately I have heard various versions of that from several people who were in the room and By all accounts it's accurate. I can't swear to the precise words that were used but certainly A variety of versions of it have actually already been out in the public eye in a couple of different books but this is the first one I think that lays it out in such vivid terms so stunned and really shocked Particularly from President Trump. And you know let's be candid here. He's he's in a room with Mike. Contemporaries including for example chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joe Dunford Joe Dunford served under my command and in Afghanistan is a four star Marine general. His nickname in the core is fighting. Joe Because of his combat attributes boots earned All around the world but most recently in both Iraq and Afghanistan Joe by the way pre is also a graduate of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and is someone who is quite adept. Not only at Launching missiles if you will but also launching ideas he's is also soft spoken utterly respectful of others whether they are the most junior person in the room the most senior person in the room so for someone like president trump who obtained a medical deferment for bone spurs under what has been widely reported to be questionable circumstances Arkham stances to call someone like Joe Dunford a baby or a loser or dope. is just a staggering act of personal discourtesy but also professional malfeasance on the part of president and you have to think doc about our presidents in their relationships with the military and let me say this I worked directly for President Bush. A Republican can in President Obama. A Democrat is a four star military officer directly through the Secretary of Defense. Of course when I was a combatant commander worked for president. Bush is combat command or for U. S. Southern Command everything south of the United States on military activity and worked for president. Obama Bama for four years as Supreme Allied Commander and commander. US European president. Bush and president. Obama are very different. People newsflash rush very politically Different but let me tell you two things. They had an absolute accord. Both of them were deeply respectful of of the military. Both of them had positive. Thoughtful relationships with their admirals and generals both were the leaders leaders in the room and when a decision was made we moved out on it. Even if we didn't agree with every bit of it But I think of all my times around those the two presidents in the situation room in the tank in the Pentagon in the field with both of them at NATO summits with President Obama in every every interaction I ever had. was positive respectful and also was crucial to maintaining civilian William control the military in so to have a scene like that reported. I think again is not only personal. Discourtesy Seattle level that. It's hard for me to imagine. But I think it's it's professional malfeasance in that it breaks down those bonds in those relationships relationships that are crucial in that helped maintain civilian control of the military. And I'll close on this pre by saying also reported in that story and I've heard heard it from others that day. That secretary of State Tillerson not a veteran. Although a son of veterans stood it up and stood in the in the glare of the president and push back on the president's commentary and I think Those of us in the military were are very grateful for Secretary tillerson response in that circumstance. If you've been in that room what do you think you would have done in reaction. It's hard to say It's it's tempting to say something like oh I would have stood up and pushed back on the president. I and said how dare you Mr President. I doubt it would have done that. Pre Training right th the it is not it is not and your training. Every refined sugar of your military being is saying to you be quiet. Get through this get out of the room and think about this before before you do something precipitate so I think that's what all of the military people in the room are doing. And here I I suspect would have to include General Jim Mattis and I say they deliberately general. Jim Mattis Not Secretary of defense. James Mattis because I think fundamentally Gimenez whom I know very well and have a lot of friendship and respect for you know. He spent a lifetime in uniform about thirty seven to forty years as I did so I think I understand his reactions and I suppose that's why someone like secretary. tillerson would have felt more free to step up and speak his mind in that circumstance but again practice gets back it to my point when the president indulges himself in his temper in a tirade like that it really phrase the bonds of civilian two billion control the military because it it shapes the view of the president in the minds of his commanders in ways that are not helpful all the country potentially heads into crisis or war. There's something I wonder about with. Respect to the challenges of dealing with this particular president with his particular personality and and much of it is is highlighted by what you just said and that is I understand and respect traditions and norms that generals may have abided by like you describe respectful. Response wants to the commander-in-chief another norm that seems to be observed by General Madison. Others they say is that they keep generally quiet about things that they may have disagreed with even when they leave military military service which may be all well and good but when the president himself is such a determined norm breaker and engages in the kind of conduct. We just heard about in the tank. Does that change the equation and in your mind. Should people like General Mattis now say more and is there some service to be done by Moore speaking out and not it engaging the same kind of deference and reticence that we've seen in the past I think there is and First of all two very different things One is should you push back in in become disrespectful yourself and shout back to the president. I don't I think so. I don't think that is helpful in any context but once you are out of uniform I see no problem with senior. The military officers commenting particularly on matters of policy in pre. Does you know on the chief. International analyst for NBC. You see news and I spent a lot of time commenting on policy commenting on the wisdom or lack thereof of decisions that are made. I think what's important. Is that the individuals who are willing to do dad who had the kind of experience that I'm lucky enough to have keep it out of the venue knew of domestic politics but keep it. Based in fact based in expert opinion based in commentary commentary on policy. Call them as you see them. Don't avoid saying the White House is doing something that makes sense on the other hand. Feel free if something is being done that makes no sense to go ahead and use your experience and your commentary Terry In order to help shape where you think the nation should go. I have no problem with that. I want to talk about events in Iran and Iraq from from recent times that I know you've commented on so everyone appreciates that around the turn of the of the year they're aggressive actions taken against Americans a contractor was killed and there was a move on the embassy in Baghdad and as often happens and I'm sure you've done this many many many times you're part of a team that presents options options for the president to respond in some way. If you had been in the loop in the mix on this occasion would you have seen fit to include as one of the options options the killing of general. Sumani hindsight is a beautiful thing. I would say I probably we would not have included that as an option. And I'll tell you why. I think that there is a strong case to be made in taking out General Sulamani particularly if you had valid intelligence That he was in the process of setting up in the immediate future attacks against American citizens so if that evidence was available then yes I would have included needed it. If this was a list of strategic options for the President I would not have included. And let me unpack each that in another another sentence or two again taking Sulamani off. The chessboard is a net plus tactically for the United States. It takes a real capability away from the Iranian Particularly Revolutionary Guards and it is something that is without question trend going to diminish the ability of the Iranians to think coherently about how to pull together all the various activities. They are conducting in the Middle East because he really was the genius of that. You often think you know leaders come and go. And they're always deputies to step in. He was so special that it dealt Emma Monreale significant meaningful blow just to remove him. Yes without question and I base that on a decade of Tracking General General Suleimani through intelligence reports. I've I've struggled trying to give Americans a counterpoint. Here in the best one I can come up with is Eisenhower. He was an eisenhower like figure. In terms of his his strategic and tactical view of the battlefield field his prominence. The affection Americans had for Eisenhower Iranians had a deep affection for General Sulamani. Honey we may not like that but those are facts but that's not what that's what some people in the administration or saying. I've heard a lot of people in the administration say lots lots of Iranians are happy thought of Sulejmani as a killer and so this view that you've stated they say is not widely shared. What's what do you make of that I don't know who is providing you that I will say this certainly. The opposition within Iran is not unhappy about the departure of Sulamani but even inside Iran. That's not were. Sulamani was focused in his operational context. preet he was very much Mr outside inside. He had real political aspirations. And without out question he was fully aligned with the supreme leader in the mullah's in therefore from an inside perspective the opposition in Iran his his not unhappy to see his departure but by and large across the nation. There was deep real affection for him and exhibit a hey would be the crowds who turned out When he was his body was brought back Muc- numbers as high as three million million? You know Iran has a population about eighty million so population adjusted basis. Multiply by four. That would be a funeral. Where say ten million Americans turned out right and those are not renna crowds from everything I can see from the intelligence? I'm aware of from the conversations I'm having with. A LONG-TERM LONGTERM Iran observers there was real affection for Sulamani and therefore back to where we started this. I think it is a significant move. Move off the chessboard. But here's the real point that move was taken without any thought as far as I can see about what's does strategy in keeping with chess as an analogy Just being a game the Iranians didn't quite invent but certainly perfected. There's no further set of moves on the board. The administration as it often does did something unpredictable end impulsive without a theory of the case as how to move forward. That's my objection to the killing of Sulamani strategic isn't one of the strategic justifications. That is now being articulated related that it's it's part of a theory of deterrence and so it's not just you know to disrupt with respect to some imminent threat however you define imminence but also now they know and not just the but the Koreans the North Koreans and others know that the United States is prepared to take very decisive and serious and unexpected action up to and including the targeted killing of someone. WHO's one of the top one two or three leaders of a country and that will cause everyone to think twice? Is that a strategy or not. I I don't think so. And certainly it's not a strategy that I would want to see the United States of America. Sign up to our use of lethal force is is strictly circumscribed in international law. In my reading of the situation is that the best argument the administration has is the hostile act imminent threat argument. The idea that we can kill other leaders Interact inactive deterrence. I don't think passes muster with international law in from my own personal perspective. It feels to me like a violation nation of our own principles.

"His mind. This question comes into tweet from chicken bell. Chicken Bell can justice Roberts veto any McConnell's rules. Well it seems from what the rules are in the Senate that stood for a couple of decades and then the new resolution on which we expect by the time this podcast drops there will have been vote and probably will pass. Without any amendments justice. Roberts will have very little role in fact. Mitch McConnell's draft resolution doesn't mention Justice Roberts once I don't believe and makes clear that motions that are brought to the Senate for consideration whether relating to witnesses or evidence or anything else are brought to the Senate under be resolved by the Senate by a vote and the long standing rules of the Senate that have not been unamended state. That even if John Roberts the chief justice of the United States makes a ruling with respect to some issue like evidence or a witness. That's an initial ruling. That itself can be. I guess vetoed vetoed or overruled by a majority vote of the Senate. So there are. Some people have speculated Justice Roberts may assert himself in some serious way and create something of an impasse. I tend to doubt it. I don't think he wants to the rules. Don't allow for it. Senate procedure doesn't allow for it. And so as in the case of Justice Rehnquist back during the Clinton impeachment trial. It doesn't seem the Justice Roberts is going to have a heavy hand in any of these proceedings at all This week is Admiral James Stub. Rita's he's the decorated. US Naval Officer.

He also explains. Why why these Sulamani strike even if legally justified is a strategy that conflicts with American values? So.

"Hi this is not a line in Brooklyn calling with a question for my dad. Matthew Connecticut and explain in his defensive trump Alan Dershowitz says that foreign policy is if lucidly domain at the executive and that therefore what trump did not impeachable in my the opinion what trump is doing with Ukraine not foreign policy but to take another example. What if Congress passed a law? 'cause I funding to Cuba and trump surreal foreign foreign policy. Reasons refuse to send the funded. Would he be subject to impeachment for US according to Jersey. He would not but it seems to me and my dad that foreign policy is really not exclusively presidential and that's a violation of any law passed by Congress. They subject to impeachment. We're looking forward to hear your thoughts on this and we love podcast thanks. I'm madeline. Thanks for your call in your question though. It appears to come from your father. I think you're now says is pretty good. Look people will always always argue and democratic Republican presidents have both argued in different contexts. That foreign policy is within the domain of the executive branch and especially the president of the United States and that makes a lot of good sense now. Most of the examples that are getting by on Dershowitz don't seem to take into account that the president of the United States may engage in something that looks like foreign policy. But as you you point out is really about himself is really about self-dealing which was what the whole Ukraine scandal was about. The president. United States was doing something for his own personal political benefit. Time time and time again and the evidence that his intentions were all about self regard comes from all manner of witnesses and documents and the fact that the foreign policy establishment both within and end without the White House and Congress already against him on this issue of providing aid to Ukraine. Makes it clear that he had his own not foreign policy objective but his own personal and private benefit that he was seeking so for example is annual Komen. I talk about in the insider podcast one hypothetical provided by Alan Dershowitz relates to whether or not it is impeachable if the president of the United States simply allows Vladimir Putin to annex Alaska to Russia which is quite outrageous hypothetical and he does it for effect back Cornell undershirts because that's in the province of foreign policy. The president could be impeached for it. But that ignores a central issue that pertains in the Ukraine case as an pointed out in our conversation intersection in that is unquestionably. If the reason that Donald Trump allowed the annexation of Alaska for personal gain in other words in exchange for the opening of a huge trump tower in Moscow for for example that self-dealing. That's a high crime. I think unquestionably and would subject the president to impeachment so needs to beware of hypotheticals that don't incorporate into them mm-hmm the actual facts and intentions that the president had with respect to the Ukraine affair. Now I think separately. Your hypothetical relating to Cuba is an interesting one separate and apart from Donald Trump's personal personal interest in withholding aid from Ukraine. We now have this. A General Accounting Office opinion that says Donald Trump broke the law with respect to not turning over the money that was allocated by Congress Congress so whether you're talking about that issue in Ukraine or you're talking about some other issue on which Donald trump defies the law and FIS congress. I think you have an argument. That that's impeachable as well but just to restate the obvious again. The most clearly impeachable offense is when the president of the United States corrupts his office engages. In what we have here extortion slash bribery not proceeding in favor of the foreign policy of the United States. This question comes from twitter user. Mugabe the report at Premera. How is it that left? Parnasse is able to speak openly while out on bond without repercussions while Roger Stone had a gag order has gas. Well the answer that is simply league. They have different judges and different judges. In different circumstances. Depending on the nature of expected speech by a charge defendant will make different decisions about gag. Orders gag orders by the way are fairly rare. They're rare in part because most defendants listened to the counsel of their lawyer and most lawyers council their clients were under federal indictment to keep their mouths shut and stay off. The airwaves mean a large subset of defendants. Nobody's interested in hearing from them so they wouldn't get national TV interviews anyway but of the people that are they tend to keep quiet because most of the time it's in your interest is now may be the case here. The left part is trying to show that he wants to be cooperative with the Senate and the trial and the house and that he's able to be cooperative in a way that might influence the decision makers at the southern district of New York to give him some benefit of leniency with respect to his criminal case. I don't know if they'll be successful or not pretend to think it won't be the other differences Roger Stone when he was Exercising his right of free speech while he was under. Indictment was doing all sorts of things to affect his case by speaking negatively about the prosecutors negatively about other folks which I think the judge did not have any tolerance for so Roger Stone more polemical more obnoxious harder. Judge left part is so far able to speak.
Shyamala Prayaga from Ford Motor discusses her book "Emotionally Engaged Digital Assistant"
"So my book as called emotionally engaged assistant list and so the thing is the space is overcrowded and getting overcrowded. Not just with white spots but also a chat bots everyone is focusing goosing on only one thing you know having a personality for the assistant and I see a lot of block bowls. I see a lot of different articles and everything floating around which only talks about how you know we have to create a personality but we are missing is what people see is the tip of the iceberg. which has a combination of things which the experience overall and that's where the connection is build the emotional connection but below the of the iceberg is with all the different elements and Leo's Lice? So my book talks about all the different elements was not being one of them the tone of the wise the pitch which uses the other part of it and then it talks about the different processes processes it talks about you know how personalization which you mentioned previously and It talks about you know the different technologies and capabilities which can be employed for the emotionally engaged assistant. I say so what specifically is missing. You say that people often talk about emotion. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. So what does it. That's missing in the dialogue. So you know there are like six or seven elements. I talk about in this book. So one partic- personality where job. How does your assistant? Ah Sound Blake are what are the traits and things like that falls into and then the second thing is you know the tone itself. The wish accused which we design also also makes a lot of defense in on how the personalities for C. but how a person is going blue connect with the assistant then of course the chimes and cues which we use also oh makes the same kind of connection. Those are the just the visual design part of it. Conversation design plays an important role the copywriting techniques us. How does the bottom line producer sale for? How does the bar apologize or when does it apologize? All of these kinds of different. Things are really important when we talk about you know designing and emotionally engaged to the assistant and then the other side of it is. How much do I know about the users that makes a lot of difference in a link to personalize the experience on new talk about Boediono Lake? Certain things or you know like most of the box if you talk a moated I will not name the assistance but most of them are branded as dump trump. Yeah Dumbass even though they have a personality there are some aspects missing. which is making that kind of you know branding? So that is why Michael Stocks about the emotional engagement people have been. There are all of these different aspects in all which are included into the personality wonderful. And who's the book aimed is. Is it the other designers always to have a wider audience than that. Yeah so not just designers anyone wanting to get into the white space or anyone who who is designing why strategies to assistant strategies wanted companies. You know this book is much broader than specific. ADM interesting okay. Well that that sounds thanksgiving. You say it'll be a it'll be available on Amazon will be so this is a self publishing. I'm polishing myself on. It'll be available through Amazon. Very nice okay. We got to look out for that emotional engaged digital

"I walked home Probably twelve miles to my home in Alexandria because as you may know the effectively the city was was completely shut down and It was A very much like I think for all of us Extraordinarily impactful moment. But for me what I realized I was the irony of the moment really struck me that I've been through all this sort of combat experiences And and been endanger plenty of times but I was almost killed in the Pentagon you know behind all these concrete walls Protected by the strongest military on Earth in the capital the richest country in the planet. And what it showed me was that our opponents are going to find ways to get around walls and one consistent theme theme in my life and career has been. We shouldn't rely on walls. They won't work. We should We should try to build bridges both in positive ways and also so with allies. So when we do have to use our power we do it in concert with others so for me. It was Obviously personally shocking moment but it was also a Kinda piff IMMI that guided the rest of my career philosophically. What does that mean for your immediate future? Obviously that led almost immediately to operation enduring ring freedom and then less than did but it it it actually put me in one of the more interesting jobs. I had my career which was to be the first director factor of something called deep blue which was Innovation think tank put together by the chief of naval operations after nine eleven to try and understand stand and create the right role for the navy in fighting what we then began calling the war on terror. Let's face it. A navy isn't particularly optimized is for that kind of operation. So what the chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark asked me to do. A one-star was pick fifteen people from around the navy seals. submariner submarine bring them together and generate ideas. We didn't have resources. We didn't have line authority but we reported directly to the chief of naval operations. If we could convince him it was a good idea. It happened so we created in the year. I was there a number of innovations that exist just to this day. Expeditionary Strike Groups carrier strike groups the idea of special forces operating off afloat forward staging bases Rotational tation all crew operations. All that came out of my time at deep blue and Thus I had this intense one year sojourn in the the Pentagon post nine eleven and then I went right to strike group. Command commanded enterprise carrier Strike Group. We conduct combat operations in Afghanistan Iraq on on the Horn of Africa. What kind of operation Largely strike but also surveillance Intelligence electronic warfare a counter I e e D detection We also put the seals ashore. We supported them in a number of classified missions we conducted ballistic missile defense We kept straight or Moose Open against Iranian pressure. It was a pretty rich basket of operations. We launched thousands of strikes in that period that was primarily the thrust of it was power projection into Iraq Afghanistan in the Horn of Africa and in particular threats threats. Obviously the Taliban doesn't have a navy Taliban Afghanistan so we're taking on those targets doing close air support there we've got at that time thousands of special forces. This is in Afghanistan but the primary effort at this point then quickly becomes Iraq toward the end of that mission and down in the Horn of Africa. It's what today we think of his al-shabaab but if you recall after that nine eleven period and by the time in the strike group and four deployed its three. Oh four this is. When we're we're we're really fighting a three front war in and around the Arabian Gulf enterprise was involved in all of that? Two thousand six you get into assignment. I do commander Southern Command Command nicely with all the turmoil going on in the Middle East and in certain places in Africa which you've already talked about it in other places in the world people think of that as a little more calm and in many ways it is but Certainly pops up different threats at different times the FARC and I've chaos and Venezuelan and different a bunch of different ways. What were some of the biggest gatherings during those three years? I think before we get there. There is a very interesting two year assignment. I'm the senior military assistant to Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld so as a three star officer I company Rumsfeld everywhere he goes I function as sort of his conduit to the military. I'm like It's like being the head of the National Security Council for the president so for the Secretary of Defense I work straighted. His meetings brought information to him His senior leaders The combatant commanders. The service chiefs are the ones advising him but become kind of the mechanics of that process and as a result I'm deeply embedded in in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm there with with Rumsfeld on multiple trips It's a pretty fascinating two year. Deep dive into the war on terror and into Don Rumsfeld allows was going to say a lot of different leadership ship type books have been written about the Rumsfeld Way What did you learn well? He he himself has put together. A book called Rumsfeld's rules and he kinda follows those rules and it's actually not a set of one two three it's it's it's bits and pieces of philosophy and ideas that he's picked up up here and there over the years and any kind of melds together. I would say what Secretary Rumsfeld represents as someone who is always direct and honest. He is Unbelievably unbelievably energetic as a leader. He's into everything he's got questing mind. He does not slow down to take a lot of care of people but he quietly takes care of people on the backside of their duties. A very dynamic leader certainly policy galaxy wise. You could have some arguments with some of the things that occurred in some of the decisions but as a leader. He moved the Department of Defense in a very forthright manner in a very patriotic manner. I have a lot of regard for secretary for that. I think so Certainly you'll get a variety of opinions but I think he put his whole heart into that mission and I respect them for it. Start About Southern Command. Now we'll share some of the the greater concerns. Yeah so then. I go to Miami where the headquarters of Southern Command isn't it. It's a completely different world down there. It's I don't want to say it's you know kind of a backwater but it's it's a place where compared to what's happening in Iraq and Afghanistan and NATO. It's it's quieter quieter you have more rhythm in what's going on the big challenges or counter-narcotics Cuba in our ongoing challenges with them Venezuela well at this time is run by Hugo Chavez. There's a kind of a left wing political movement spreading in places like Nicaragua Ecuador Bolivia. So you feel feel not always welcome in that world and during the time I was there. Argentina flipped And the centerpiece of at all however was Columbia and the counter-insurgency That the government of Colombia was fighting against the the FARC which is an acronym for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. Just a Marxist group Here in two thousand seventeen finally After sixty years Colombia has executed a peace agreement and now is in a better place but in those years when I was there six to nine it was the height of that war and we were United States were supporting the Colombian military so it was a lot of precision guided weapons. There's a lot of interaction with our CIA colleagues a lot of intelligence gathering information sharing So really a fascinating assignment. I was actually born in Miami Miami. I speak Spanish so very comfortable for me to operate in that environment and at the end of it in two thousand six I resigned. I retired sent my retirement. Note to Secretary Gates thinking that would be the end And he surprised me by asking me to go to NATO. And be the first Admiral Admiral to command NATO. So that happened two thousand nine two questions on that what what did it mean. TV to be the first navy man to the Supreme Allied Commander. And secondly when you're a military leader got a whole bunch of different things you need to coordinate and people to keep happy or at least have have their era they have your ear. Now you've got a whole bunch of different countries countries right where you need to get along well with. So how did you make that well. I was pretty shocked by the assignment. I in the back of my mind. I had kind of been hoping hoping that. Perhaps I'd go not to you calm and NATO but rather go to pay calm to the Pacific Command which is generally we're admirals go and secretary secretary gates has always wanted to shake things up and he knew that I speak French and Spanish Greek American I have that whole package. He felt like I would fit better in Europe so he asked me to to take that on and I wasn't particularly deep in NATO. I'd studied it As a young officer Herat Annapolis and then a bit when I was doing my PhD. At the Fletcher School but I was far from a NATO expert so to make honest I went into it with a great deal of trepidation wasn't sure I was the right fit in had always been a general before. Generally people who dad four or five tours in Europe was was a very very daunting assignment for me. But I spent a lot of time learning on the way I went around and met with everybody I could think of. I talk talk to all the living former supreme allied commanders and spent I think a fair amount of diligence trying to understand the key issues in Europe Europe. At the time when I arrived I had a very warm welcome from at that time. Twenty seven other nations. Now we have. We have total of twenty twenty nine now. Montenegro just joined I arrived. We had just added to Albanian Croatia to come to twenty-eight Total and I began by going around each of the capitals and Learning and listening and trying to understand the culture and history of each of the allies and then gradually. After six months. I felt I had enough knowledge to start trying to put program together so we worked on Afghanistan that was kind of job. One big NATO mission. I had one hundred fifty thousand listen troops under my command there we had Almost twenty five thousand in the Balkans still kind of reminiscent of the worst of the Balkans. We had About five thousand to ten thousand on any given day doing piracy off the coast of Africa. we obviously had a big structure lecture for deterrence against Russia which at this time has just invaded.

All about TMAO with W.H. Wilson Tang, MD
"All right in today's episode we we are with Dr Tang from Cleveland Clinic. I am beyond honored to have after Tang on the podcast. He is absolutely brilliant and I cannot appreciate appreciate more tank taking the time busy busy schedule to talk with us about. Tma Island off the research is not so thank you Dr Tank for joining us. Oh thank you Danielle pleasure to be here. Thank you so I I would want free to just introduce yourself and tell everyone kind of about what do and what your work is a cardiologist researcher well. I'm actually a heart transplant cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic and my day job I see patients with heart failure and trying into identify potential courses and trying to delay the progression and if unfortunately they get worse I try to see where what we could do with mechanical devices or transplants and then actually take care of them after wits so obviously that's very different from my research were which is trying to prevent that from happening it is too many people heading towards the same cliff and we definitely need to find ways to prevent ben from developing heart disease and more importantly heart failure absolutely and your research is is just outstanding. We'll everything you do is incredible. The heart failure and transplant is obviously very amazing aspect because so much is changing with our different not only medical therapies irby's but now with transplant and some of the mechanical circulatory support so it's really a dynamic changing an unbelievable feel. Your research is so groundbreaking and fascinating to me so I would love if you could give everyone. There's a lot of physicians scientists and Science Lovers listened to my podcast and a lot of them are interested interest in the work you did so. I'd love if you could kind of give an overview just starting kind of about what tm Ao is an and your work and how it relates to cardiovascular disease sure so I've always been fascinated by how heart how the heart interacts with other organs and in particular the kidneys and so for a long time I've been working with a different researchers to look at how the heart and the kidney interacts and my translational research has actually headed towards that direction early on where we were trying to find molecules in the blood that distinguish between those who progress develop you know kind of the events versus those who do not aw and early on I measured a lot of small molecules that we actually know to have kind of aspirations something like the adm a is symmetric saw Janine which is really an endogenous Netra. I'll say synthase inhibitor and also different small molecule metabolite so that's actually actually where I started looking at oxidative stress and nitrogen stress and how you know kind of using blood and urine we could actually detect early triggers that can can help us identify. You Know Progressive Diseases so we have this kind of. I did that potentially many unknown substances in the blood at also tell the same story and when we first started we have a mass SPEC machine that could identify different small molecule us and we have samples of patients who subsequently develop diseases that we have collected early on with a control group of those who did not develop disease so we actually try it over and over again using different incase controlled comparisons to look at a vast array of molecules small molecules usually under like a hundred Dalton and so America weight a hundred and trying to figure out you know these sma- accused whether they could distinguish patients who have events versus don't have events events and as you imagine when we keep going this case control you know comparison over and over again using different cohorts of samples we ended up saving down filtering down you know less and less number molecules until we hit about eighteen of them only after like multiple secessions off ah case controlled comparisons and so that actually seeps out from thousands of molecules through eighteen but then they all kind of in molecular weight the we actually don't know what they are art we knew one or two of them but we didn't know the rest and and so it's a hard work of a few postdoctoral fellows from Dr Stan Heathens lab that started working on literally figuring out the permutation combination of these potential compounds and then of course we have to validate date them as you can imagine many many difference. Amok you have to say molecular weight so if you think about it literally doing trial and error at that point that was it's kind of a hectic work but then we we certainly find three molecules in these eighteen that seemed to be correlating into each other and we were very perplexing what they are so we actually focus assets in looking in a band and it turns out the all having a Trimbe Isao group so three mess me sell that linked to link together and one of them seem to be a by product that is conversion version by humans but it was generated by bacteria in the literature so that's how we actually you know mentally got into the whole field of Gut microbiome grown obviously never predicted that this is going to happen but we started to be able to specifically identify the NFL which was try Michel and and Tommy fell and oxide superbeets I mean and so this is actually how we act on that and so after that we have you know obviously other samples that had long term outcomes and we started to kind of off generate and the perspective cohort of patients who we know over time had you know so a number of people have diseases and we started added to you know analyze those ampoules identify independently identify the pro value of Cameo in those cohorts which which was independent of all the traditional sectors and to demonstrate that indeed it may be a causative factor we have to turn to animal role models and conveniently the most model that we had had the bacteria and got that produces a good amount of tm that with your Mayo we learn about subsequently because some mouse actually don't have those bacteria that makes him a which becomes very very convenient for us otherwise but we the most common laboratory mouse list electric miles and in fact it does generate a lafayette meal when they were Fed with choline rolling diet chain a really comes from bacteria consumption of substrates that we the food that we eat every day so anything anything with me saw groups that they could actually use as food the bacteria used as food. ended up generating this torturing us. I protocol brought a copy emmy which it goes into the blood and through the liver and deliver. I should convert it to Tamil so the foods that are most post high in choline and carnitine which are the precursors when they go through the microbiome to go from t t mail so these you find find highest in you would say things like eggs and at red meat yeah meat liver. You know things that actually have high cholesterol electro. It's kind of some people even called it the third cholesterol and it is something that that the other thing that we as cardiologists tell patients to avoid for good balanced diet half high choline content now just be aware that choline is important some people. I feel quite strongly that in early development we do need cold into a precursor for Coleen which obviously is important for neural zero development so that's why it's actually Africa as a supplement for pregnant women and actually consumption guidelines guidelines for that and some older patients also use Coleen for that purpose thinking that they may actually help with reducing cognitive decline fine except that obviously the data there is not very strong but I think it is important to recognize this is where we found out later and improbably interesting to your audience that another compound that is common in foot- groups is commenting which is a meet and red meat in particular and that certainly has a different type of enzymes in different types of bacteria that convert the connotation into and subsequently lead to production of TM L. so I think that's where we have the the a unique opportunity to truly understand what the environment in this case that dietary intake and different food groups particularly meet and how that impact the body's response and also the metabolites produce when eating red meat. I not eating red yeah. That's fascinating and so when did you start to make the connection between TMA. Oh and Athar Genesis Platelet let aggregation atherosclerosis things like this yeah. This is actually quite early. Once we actually got the animal models going recognized at the mouth that we use indeed indeed when eating Choline fossils you're calling in particular lead to production of Cameo. Obviously we were able oh to start using the mouse model to look at after genesis so what we do is we were able to feed the mouse with without the choline content in detail and then this is the type of mouse flex most at more prone to development of Roma. This is so call eight now mice and so studies have actually shown that with like accelerated girls and and interestingly when we were well we were able to demonstrate firstly the bacteria is involved in this by giving both anybody and see whether the the cameo levels go down which they do but also for germ free mice when they don't have any gut flora where we did them choline lean diet they don't generate male or female but then when the mouse was exposed to kind of you know the the wild meaning they start doc accumulating gut bacteria `timeo production increases and the presence of this elevation leads to more through through ask the Roma and they order and when we give short-term anybody with a triple regimen something that you know stays in the bow for the four the mice we actually found that is attenuated. All these really have a direct cost-effective this now we could demonstrate you know almost like the cost postulate that we learn in in infectious disease microbiology that the presence of the bacteria is essentially making the metabolite and obviously tm AOL is also present some food particularly fish and seafood the task you I I was this is like the number one question to ask. You is in a preformed. TM In fish does this raise your humans ends and if so is a rise from that form of TMA. Oh bad for us it actually it does in fact if you actually have you you know just otherwise healthy individuals eat a wide variety of food which people have done experiments on that the the main food component that leads doue transient rise and fall and cameo is dish and particularly but not off fish half the email. You think Judy Logically Cameo. Oh is made by the muscles of the fish particularly deep sea fish because changes the melting of the the freezing point of the muscles. I was actually the muscles antifreeze so it provides a protection for the deep sea fish so that's why doesn't look like the fish in the freezer it actually make make make sufficient up freeze and so so impact people have done a lot of work in marine green biology on on this and in fact the enzymes made in fishes muscles that actually convert TMA os well alm aw generate and also eliminate because when fish you know moves from Coda to warmer waters. Actually some of this also changed so we actually actually know that not auditions created equal to not only from cameo levels but also their fish oil levels so you actually measured him. Ill level in say you know lake fish will Shallow Water Trish they actually timmy levels are quite low in back some of them. Are you know non you know very very low. Concentrations whereas deep sea fish like called and like you know a fish that we actually tuna in you know or

But the European Central Bank is what gives the did a completely unexpected about face. This morning promising not to raise interest rates at least through the end of this year and saying it is going to make more loans to European banks. Marketplace's Nancy Marshall genzer explains. What's going on the European Central Bank said today that the economy's at the euro zone. Nineteen countries that use the euro will grow by just around one percent this year, partly due to the trade. Tensions between the US and China. Mark austral is chief economist at ADM investor services. He says if the Chinese economy slows further as the trade talks with the US drag on that's bad news because Europe exports so much to China. Everything from calls down to simple consumer goods as well. As exporting a loss of machinery to China says China will buy less from Europe, if it's a Konomi seizes up President Trump's threat to slap a tariff up to twenty five percent on cars from Europe is also weighing on the euro zone economy. And then there are zombie loans. Loans euro-zone bags made to failing companies that are still on their books. Danielle de Martino booth is a former Dallas fed adviser because they haven't been written off. You're not freeing up the ability the bandwidth in order to make fresh loans that therefore spur fresh economic growth. The European Central Bank is trying to change. Change that by making cheap long-term loans to banks.

Three ways to curb your technology addiction
"Are you addicted to your phone like we are today, we explore this modern addiction, and as a community will think of ways to work through it? Listen in for some great tips today. Jessica how you feeling today. I'm feeling good man starting twenty nineteenth strong. And I am you know, I just wanna get right to it. Because we have such an interesting conversation today. Yeah. We do. We have a fascinating conversation. This came to my mind because last night, I was at my meditation center, actually, and someone came to give a talk who had written a book actually on addiction. But specifically the topic came to technology addiction at the end when someone asked a question and the person who has to question was actually feeling a little bit threatened by the fact that this speaker had created apps to help people curb technology addiction. Okay. That seems just weird right out of the gate. Right. Right. Exactly. So, but the thing is like, well, we won't go into the framework and the deeper kind of Buddhist principles, but you know, his ideas are actually very counter to what our modern society tends to approach addiction with any kind of addiction. Right. Which is like don't do adult. Let yourself do it. He has some different ideas, which I think probably do work with the problem here is like do the ends justify the means. And I love this quote. This is such a good quote. What does this mean? Jessica such a great ADM. You guys the ends justify the means. It sounds so high level and fancy so the ends in this case are the goals. Right. The end goal. So that makes sense. And then the means are the tools you use to get there. Right. How are you going to reach that goal? So this question do the ends justify the means. Because sometimes the means are not that great, right? Like, maybe the means are a bit. Dodgy or maybe the the means might hurt you or someone else? But maybe the ends the goal is something great. And something grand exactly is this whole argument over this balance. Like is this little bit of bad worth the ultimate good at the end. Right. So exactly so be put in the context here is the fact that I have to sign into my app. Right. Maybe three times a day to check in into follow the instructions does it justify is it is it worth it for that goal that eventually I wanna be I want to reduce my diction to my phone or technology. So I don't know. I mean, it's a really great question. And I'm so excited because I feel like most of our listeners are going to be able to relate to this issue of technology addiction. Yeah. No for sure I mean, guys, we've been talking about all this, you know, inspirational change for twenty nineteen and I feel like this is a huge part of the conversation. I'm sure everyone out there. Even if you don't feel like you're addicted to technology. I'm sure everyone would recognize the benefits of using their phone less. Right. I mean, no matter where you are what you're doing. I'm sure you could look at your day and think oh my gosh. Like if I added up all the minutes.
