Heather Mac Donald: The Future of Medicine Will Be Race-Driven
"You write in this piece, the guardians of the medical profession are discarding merit in order to alter the demographics of their field. Now, my wife just had a baby last week and we wanted the best experts there and thankfully we had them. Are you trying to tell me that the direction medicine is going is that it's not going to be on merit. It's not going to be on competency, but instead on skin color, is that correct? That's correct, Charlie. And you may soon be getting an obstetrician that knows more about white privilege and heteronormativity than he or she does about how to deliver a C section or a breach birth. We have the very leaders of the medical profession, the guardians, the AMA, the American association of medical colleges who have declared a patent untruth that medicine is shot through with systemic racism. And the solution to that is massive racial preferences both in admissions to medical schools and then into appointments to medical positions into who runs research labs, what kind of research gets done, meritocracy is now viewed as just another symptom of white supremacy.
"ama" Discussed on The Bad Crypto Podcast
"Who's that? In your world, welcome to the bad crypto podcast. I don't think I can do the voice really well. I've been Travis can do it better. I don't know, I'm never talking to the guy, so I don't even know what his folks like. I've seen him on a movie. Just give me a Rambo scream or something. But I'm also on the big screen today. I don't think those video on the big screen and I'm larger than life and that's how I live my life one day at a time, larger than I should be. You're just right sized, Travis. You're a Travis right size. You're Travis right size. Listen, I want to give a quick shout out to our sponsor here today and let you guys know that modern crypto mining can really suck. It uses a lot of electricity. It can be bad for the environment. And gather network has figured out a way to both reduce the environmental impacts of crypto mining and help web publishers earn extra money from their content. So basically, visitors opt into the service and it uses the user's idle processing power to mine cryptocurrency. So basically you got your computer and while it's not doing nothing, your processors just sitting there, you know, reading the newspaper or something, it could be mining crypto for you. If you want to figure out how to monetize your web content, get rewarded, go to gather dot network, check it out, and we will be having them on the show in the not too distant future so that we can ask our questions and get more answers directly from them on what they're doing. Around the campfire, children will roast the marshmallows. It'll be great. So a number of months ago, boy probably 6, 7 or more. I don't know. A year ago. We had that first call a year ago when I was in palmas. How about that? So it was a year ago, because I remember when we were having a conversation with those guys, originally, it was when I was in that place in Palmer's my Airbnb at the time. That's right. That was a long time ago and Paul miss Farr far away. It would have been over a year ago when we had that call based on the timestamp right now. Well, so long and short of it is I'm cofounder of a project called planet sly. And we're working with Sylvester Stallone, had the opportunity to meet with him at his place in Florida and discuss creating a PFP project that would create massive value for holders of the project Stallone's real goal is to engage and interact with his fans and connect with them. And so planets slide dot com is launching soon. The website is up. The Discord is up. Our communities over 25,000 people right now. And we told the Discord community that when we hit 20,000 people, Stallone himself is going to come on and do an AMA and people can submit all kinds of questions. Whatever they want to ask. And so interestingly enough, because our team is answering so many of the questions about the NFT project in the Discord and on the website, the questions that people wanted to ask were of a more personal nature. Travis, if you could ask a question about anything, what would it be? Well, actually, I would say this is that if I haven't been in Dubai, then I would have probably flown to Florida with you to meet Sylvester Stallone that day that you met him. And I was like, so my question is Travis, why was I in Dubai? Instead, I'm going to meet sly. You were doing to buy instead of slide. But honestly, if you had a question, you've seen movies and you're followed his career. What would you want to know? I would probably be something rocky related or something along those. Or it's like, I'd probably ask him, what does he think is the worst movie he ever made? Does he hate the most? And it was probably what was the one that I don't stop at your mom's shoes or something like that. It probably, I guess one of those, like what was his least favorite movie or maybe rhinestone, although who wouldn't like working with, wasn't it Dolly Parton? That was in rhinestone with him. I wasn't Robert Redford in that too or something? I don't remember. I don't think I watched it. I was rhinestone cowboy. That was a different one. Boy. So anyway, this is a 45 minute ask me anything that had the opportunity to do a Sylvester Stallone. Many people from the Discord got to ask questions directly. I read the others and had a couple of questions of my own. So if you go to, if you're watching this on YouTube, you'll actually see sly and just hear the voice of myself and the others that got to ask him questions. If you're just listening, the reason that it sounds like I'm remotely is because they recorded it in slice trailer on location for a TV show. This is his first real TV series he's doing. You'll learn more about that in the AMA and that's why I sound distant. His recording is great because he's right there in the trailer himself. So without any further recording, my recording sounds nonexistent because I wasn't there. Because you wasn't there. I'm just here for Phil right now and to be on the big screen before I'm the main attraction before you see this professor Sloan guy. He's new. He's upcoming guy. You might, you're going to hear maybe more about him in the future. Could be a thing. You know, you might want to pay attention. Yeah. All right, so grab your popcorn and here we go with Sylvester Stallone. It's fantastic. Sly was great to see you in Florida. We're really excited. The whole team's super excited to be working on this lie guys with you before we jump into the AMA. Why don't you go ahead and tell people what it is you're doing in Oklahoma City. Okay, you're busted me. I'm doing a thing called the Tulsi king, which is a fantastic project from paramount plus. It's the same team that the Yellowstone in the mayor of Kingstown and Taylor Sheridan is company. And also the group that did Sopranos. The writers in the show runners, which are really the key. People don't understand we hear showrunner. It's even above a director. There is charge of everything. They're basically the power on the set. And we have the best fellow named Terry winter. So what they're coming up with so far has been extraordinary. I don't know if I'll ever make a movie again. I think I'll stick around here. I like this. This is interesting. Yeah, television is a different beast than motion picture. Isn't it? Well, big time. First of all, I barely I just bought a trailer. I don't think I get to it four times a day. It's just nonstop. We're ready. We're ready. We're ready. We're in movies. You could literally sit there for 5 hours, and they breed you out for about a ten second shot. It's always like hurry up and wage hurry up and wait in films, not this business new. We're going to look forward to seeing that show for sure for anybody who's fans of Yellowstone, you know, this is coming from an amazing team and with lying and it's going to be amazing. Thank you. So we have a lot of questions for you today's slide and the first four are going to be asked by the individuals who submitted them. They have shown themselves to go above and beyond the Call of Duty in the planets like community. And we've got 25,000 people in this community, but these foreign particular, they're going to have an opportunity to ask you their questions directly and so the first one that I want to bring to the stage as a question is I'm going ahead and invite you up here now, good. So make sure those of you who are on the list here to ask your questions to make sure you're on the ready when I invite you up so we can get that question. Perfect. All right, let's see. While we're waiting on him to join, I'm also going to enjoy slice Stallone, Philadelphia. You can come on up. And there's still a stolen Philadelphia. Let's go ahead and you go first and share the first one to pop in here,.

Dr. Peter McCullough on Injecting Politics Into Prescriptions
"About why people died. I am infuriated. When I hear colleagues of mine, especially in California, who have doctors who have prescribed for them, Ivermectin or hydroxide, I took hydroxy, my doctor prescribed for me when I caught the COVID and they have to go to multiple one colleague had to go to 7 pharmacists before they were prepared to actually give him the legal prescription he had from his doctor. What is the potential argument against Therapeutics? Because it is my contention and please, please tell me if I'm wrong that perhaps tens of thousands of people died because COVID was not treated early enough with Therapeutics. It developed into a secondary inflammation, especially in the lower lung, and then once they were put on respirators, that was it. It was a matter of time before they died. So can you talk to us about injecting politics into prescriptions and why this war against Therapeutics? You know, we've gone through two presidential administrations to surgeon generals two tasks for us. Do you know not a single official has given a full throated endorsement of doctors doing everything they can with Therapeutics as an outpatient to help patients prevent hospitalization and death doctors have not received any support whatsoever from the governmental agencies in fact they've received headwinds. There's been statements the FDA has said, do not use hydroxychloroquine in that was last year. Now in 2021, the American medical association launched a campaign to abolish the use of Ivermectin. Now, why would the American medical association which doesn't make treatment recommendations with physicians political action committee, why would the AMA actually wage war against Ivermectin? We have over 300 supportive studies of hydroxychloroquine over 60 with Ivermectin. Ivermectin now looks like it's actually quite useful because Ivermectin is stare at a care in Mexico across the South America across India and in Japan and it's these are benign and safe medications. I think our agencies have done a great disservice by putting a chill on using drugs and combination early use of drugs appropriately clinically indicated off label use of drugs, which the FDA tells doctors, we use drugs off label when there's an unmet need and is clear COVID-19 is an unmet need.

"AMA 20 NPR news and the New York conversation This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Adrian Florida In recent days President Biden has been on the road touting his $1.2 trillion infrastructure package in it more than a $100 billion for repairing highways roads and other projects For many growing cities that could mean expanding freeways building more lanes and possibly adding to a troubling and ongoing history of American cities plowing mostly black and Latino neighborhoods to build freeways Here's transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg speaking with the Sacramento press club this past week It's very concerned It's something that we need to pay attention to So these dollars are always doing good not harm that they are connecting not dividing It was responding to a recent report from the Los Angeles Times which found that over the past three decades more than 200,000 people have been displaced from their homes due to highway expansions with black and Latino areas disproportionately bearing the brunt Ben poston and Liam Dillon reported the piece and Dylan is here to tell us more Hi Liam Hi Adrian I think some listeners might be aware of the legacy that stemmed from a lot of our nation's freeways and the communities that they displaced But I think a lot of people might be surprised to learn that that continues in this century Based on your reporting what's the extent to which this continues today Yeah and that's something frankly that we were surprised at the LA times when we embarked on this investigation trying to understand the extent and effects of highway displacements over the past 30 years and we found that nationwide more than 200,000 people have lost their homes to road expansions in that numbers and undercount because there's some data that's missing And then we also wanted to understand whether some of the neighborhoods that were affected the first time or black Latino communities that were affected in the 50s and 60s during the initial era of highway construction were still bearing the brunt of some of these expansions And what we found in examining some of the largest projects across the country is that in fact they were some major projects of one being planned right now through the city of Houston a thousand families and neighborhoods that are 75% black and Latino would lose their homes Tampa Florida another 750 families lost their homes to recent interstate expansions Los Angeles 850 families in Latino neighborhoods And so we really are finding that these megaprojects are still affecting black Latino neighborhoods in many ways like they did half century ago Was there anyone you met or learned of in your reporting who puts a face to this issue Yeah so in Florida Tampa Florida as a gentleman out Willy Dickson who first lost his home in a black neighborhood in the 1960s when Florida Department of Transportation officials built interstate two 75 then he moved three miles away started a new life with his wife lived there for 40 years and then large transportation officials decided to expand interstate two 75 and he lost his second home I think that really puts a point on the generational impacts that have occurred from both highway construction and in more recent years expansions of those same free ways As I mentioned President Biden signed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure Bill last month that's putting hundreds of billions of dollars to building and repairing roads Are there parts of that bill that set out to address these disparities we're talking about Yeah so there's a $1 billion new program tucked in there It's called reconnecting communities and the point of it is to potentially even tear down freeways address some of the harms from a racist planning decisions with respect to where freeways were cited in the past and reconnect as the program states But that amount again only $1 billion pales in comparison to the potential hundreds of billions of dollars that are essentially unrestricted where state fish departments could use it to further expand free ways and in many cases continue to displace families It sounds like you're saying the federal government in making this money available could have done more to make sure this sort of thing doesn't happen again Well indeed in an earlier version of the bill there was provisions that would have required states to dedicate that money to repairing freeways before building new ones those provisions were not in the final bill and also that $1 billion fund for reconnecting communities was also much higher Taking a step back here states are building and expanding these free ways to deal with congestion and traffic Is there proof that these sorts of projects ease traffic and congestion over the long term So that's the standard argument is traffic is so bad on these three ways meaning to expand them you know adding lanes means more cards can come through and hopefully ease congestion But you know there's a lot of research that shows that that's not the case especially in the long term In Houston suburban Houston there was an expansion over the past couple decades of interstate ten that widened it to 26 lanes across at one point so one of the widest freeways in the country and traffic problems that there are during rush hour just as bad as they were in many cases before the expansion You know in the long term we're throwing billions of dollars at these expansions and in many cases we're not getting the results that were promised That was Liam Dillon He covers housing for the Los Angeles Times And recently published an investigation with reporter Ben poston on the ongoing displacement of communities of color due to freeways Liam Dillon thanks so much Thanks Adrian The.

"In boston massachusetts rather than my usual home base of los angeles with a pandemic clearing up a little bit though obviously not entirely travel is once again possible. And as some of you know what. I'm spending the fall semester visiting the philosophy department at harvard. Harvard was my graduate institution. But i was in the astronomy department. I did though. Take some philosophy courses. Because i was interested in philosophy at the time so i got to sit on. Of course is with john. Roles and robert knows ic and other people and Some of you have heard this question this anecdote before. But i got to know john roles. I chatted with him very famous social moral political philosopher and it turns out that he's really really interested in physics cosmology so he asked me because he's very fair. John rolls his whole shtick was justice as fairness and happily. This doesn't always happen especially with moral philosophers but john roles walked the walk as well as talking to talk. He was scrupulously fair guy. I remember once Walking through harvard yard and running into some of my friends who are in the philosophy class and i was just auditing it and they were taking it for real so they'd just gotten out of the final exam and i said so how was it and he said you know what it was very fair and friend of mine who was with me immediately said those must be your philosophy friends. I've never heard of physics person. Say their final exam was fair so anyway yes john roles is all about fairness and so i asked him. Even though i was just auditing the class they. I go to the section discussions. You know the small group discussions which were led by him and he said you know the rule is. If you're a graduate student you can go to those sections your graduate student. Therefore you can go scrupulously fair. I was hoping to talk to him about philosophy and fairness and things like that but once he heard that i was at cosmologists it was all over. He's like oh you do that. Alan good stuff and so whenever we met he would ask me questions about the big bang or things like that Different things in both mathematics and physics. I remember very well once in class. He was lecturing in. He used the analogy. Proving this is kind of like proving. Stokes's theorem on an arbitrary differential manifold. Once you set up all the definitions the actual steps are very very simple. I'm sure no one else in the class understood the power of that analogy. But i thought it a very good one for me so anyway. It's nice to be back as an official person in the philosophy department. Hopefully i just started so. I haven't done anything yet. But part of my motivation here was to learn a little bit more about things like emergence and mathematics philosophy of mathematics. different questions in logic and causation. And things like that. But i will also confess that while i'm here i'll be hanging out with my old friends. Physics and astronomy as well as friends mitt and elsewhere a real tremendous number of intellectual resources here around boston so i hope it will be a lot of fun and with that we have a whole bunch of ama questions. I think if the quality of questions is going up now that we don't answer every one of them you remember rules. I will answer a certain number of questions. It's nothing to do with equality of the question. You're asking what the criterion is. Do i have something interesting to say about it. But people are definitely aiming their questions a little better now. That i can't do everyone. They're definitely trying to get in there. I do feel really bad for those who are not able to ask questions..
American Medical Association Won't Get Involved With Abortions but Does With Ivermectin
"So when it comes to abortion and advocating for abortion, The Amma says, Hey, nothing should get between a doctor and a patient even though when that doctor could prescribe an abortion is going to describe the procedure, potentially or do one. That would terminate a human life. The AMA's says, Don't you dare get between that doctor and the patient even though a life will be lost. Don't chew Dare. But then when it comes to a doctor who prescribes ivermectin because that doctor obviously believes it helps. I'm not that doctor I haven't taken I've ever met him. I haven't had covid 19 yet. I may get it. The left to wish me dead when I do. I'm sure Mark the date Jim 12 40 time. Check Friday, September 3rd Mark the date. The left will wish Dan Bongino dead. If I get covid. I'm sure of it. I don't worry. We're ready for it. My prepared my family. They're ready for the mean tweets. We hope you die sooner. That's okay. I'm used to it. But when it comes to the doctor patient relationship where doctor thinks I've ever met and can help a patient, the aim is like now you've that's a bridge too far. Whacking kids in the womb worked off. Don't worry. Don't get between that. Prescribing an anti parasitic you think could help for covid. If you're a doctor, I assume that's why you would prescribe it. I'm not a doctor. Why else would you prescribe it? Right? But I assume you've read the research and you think it could possibly help? That is definitely a bridge too far. We can't do any of that stuff. If that makes sense to you. Yes. I'm sorry to inform you. You have no principles. You may say you have principles. You may tell your kids you have principles, but you're in fact lying. You don't have principles. But you have a political aspirations and you alter your principles based on how you can acquire, maintain and project power. That is all your doing. Stop pretending! Stop lying to yourself. It's not okay. You're lying to you and everyone, right? You don't have any principles. The principles of fake they're made up.
Thoughts on Organs the Carnivore Diet
"Good news is that you do not have to eat organs or liver to be a carnivore. I know of a number of carnivores who've been eating this way for a decade or even longer and they don't eat organs at all and their thriving and they're doing really really well. I know of other carnivores who didn't feel good long-term on carnivore unless they incorporated organs. I know that. I feel better when i have organs in my diet as well. So it doesn't mean that everybody has eat organs or nobody has seed organs. I would suggest you just start out with carnivore or with an animal. Animal based diets without the organs. If you don't like the idea of them and try it for a month six months a year two years and if you start feeling worse than try incorporating organs and see if it helps you feel better. Sometimes your taste for organs or your craving for them will actually increase the longer that you do carnivore so just because you don't like the idea of them right now it doesn't mean that you're not going to like the idea of them later. Another tip is to not start with liver. I find heart and kidneys and tongue. Like beef. tongue aren't so bad. I actually really liked beef tongue. I cook it in the crock pots. And it's super easy and you can find the recipe pretty much anywhere but all you do is cook it in the crock pot. And then you have to pull off this outside layer and then it's you shred up shred up the meat and it's just like having shredded beef. It's a little different. But i think it's delicious and then i've had chicken and turkey hearts and beef hearts i think and kidneys and they're all fine. They're not my favorite food in the world. But they're definitely way better than livers. You might wanna start
"ama" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Last month in the last ama but in principle. Sure i mean in principle you could have giant consciousnesses made out of tinier pieces that played the role of neurons or something like that but the fact that it is possible in principle doesn't mean it actually happens in practice in the current world You know. I think that the consciousness that we have in our human brains is pretty dependent on special properties of our particular human brains. There's other ways. I'm very sure that you could have consciousness. But it's not just gonna pop into existence without any effort right you know. We are the result of billions years of evolution The most of those billions of years. We were single celled organisms. But still there were selection. Pressures that were shaping what we have in our brains and nervous systems and in our biology to compete in certain environments and to reproduce and so forth and the ultimate result of that is the capacity that we have in our brains to do information processing in a very coherent way. Right in a way that gives us a sense of self a sense of i whereas a nation is a bunch of people that is much more loosely organized than that with no special structure. No special rules of engagement and ways that different connections are drawn in different substructures like the brain has and so forth. So it'll be astonishing to me. If real societies were sufficiently similar to human brains that we would call them conscious organisms. And indeed i don't think that's how it is. You know when you actually want to convince a nation to do something. It's much more useful to convince the boss nation do something then try to convince the nation as a whole line. One of the aspects of why nations are very different than brains is that brains don't have a president or king or an emperor. None of their neurons is the king neuron. That's just not how it works. So yeah in principle. The laws of physics do not prevent nations from being conscious but in practice. I think it's kind of a different thing. Peter be says one of your earlier guests under the suskind has argued that inflation must create infant open universes with negative curvature yet. You mentioned that we live in consider space with positive curvature. So i'm confused. Are we living on. A dined pringle chip. We're a giant balloon. Well so i don't know this is possibly my fault but It depends you have to distinguish between the curvature of space and the curvature of space time okay. That's one thing the other thing is that would lenny is saying about the negative curvature. We don't know if that's true or not okay. So the difference between spatial curvature in space time curvature is and we have cosmology in cosmology. there's a special situation which is not necessarily true in other says aspects in other situations. Let's say in general relativity where spatial slices are homogeneous tropic. Okay there's a special way of slicing space-time into space plus time so the spatial sections are more or less the same everywhere on large scales so unlike a just an empty flat space time. Minkowski space in cosmology. There is a best way of slicing space-time into space plus time so then given that we can talk about the curvature of space as well as the curvature of space time the curvature of space is pretty close to zero. We've measured it We've not measured any overall deviation from zero so it could be very very small but positive or could be very very small but negative or zero to any any any practical Precision so with lenny is pointing out is that in his favourite version of eternal inflation. Where there are is bubble nuclear We're a little bubble of true vacuum or lease lower. Energy vacuum comes into existence inside high energy false vacuum state. You will very naturally get spatial slices that are negative curvature now. The spatial slice is going to be negative curvature..

Do you ever think about the idea of transcending the self or have you moved away from that kind of thinking. Do you think it's possible to be totally fulfilled. Well luckily ryan. I did a whole podcast on that. With scott barry kaufman And scott is a psychologist. Who actually is a huge fan of maslo and he has updated maslow's hierarchy of needs in a way that i think is really a much better. I get what you mean. The hierarchy of needs is an attractive notion. But there's something that is missing about it. And so what scott points out is number one maslow's never do the pyramid. You know the famous pyramid picture. That was done by later. Commentators and the pyramid as a metaphor is a little bit misleading pistol to solid right. It makes you think there really is a structure that we're climbing to get to transcendence at the top of it whereas the world reality in our lives is much more dynamic. And so scott is trying is arguing for replacing. The pyramid metaphor with a sailboat metaphor. Which i'd like and at basically and totally a fan of this way of thinking. So no i don't think it's possible to be totally fulfilled. I think that's a misunderstanding of what it means to be alive in human To be alive and human is to be a process to be changing. The changes might be under the surface or they might be very obvious but it's completely wrong in my view to imagine that there is one state that just need to get into and then our work is done. I think that's the opposite of how we should think about living our lives. Casey mahone says i've been thinking a lot about your notion of emerging space time in my mind it raises a similar issue is the hard problem of consciousness. In both cases it seems completely unclear to me how something of a totally different kind can. Arise simply through emergence. Well i'm sorry that it seems unclear but it happens all the time i mean that is one of the great things about emergence One of the things that you learn about emerges The rules of the emergent theory can have no obvious. Connection to the rules of the underlying theory. There will be a non obvious connection..
Why We Shouldn't Trust Medical Professionals With COVID
"Now let me ask you question. Medical the medical establishment announced as it did last year. That masks or very important. However if you're demonstrating for racial justice vast numbers of you that's more important to you. Don't need a mask if the medical profession announces that there aren't male and female in the human species that has one doctor at the ama said it's a it's a spectrum of course there's no there's no binary gender there is binary gender among all mammals and primates. Just not not not the human one notice that and these are scientists. They have been corrupted. So here's my question. Why listen to them about covert if they lie about sex on the most basic things on earth if they lie about masks and protests why would why do you believe for a moment. They're telling the truth about vaccinations or about masks. I'm not saying they're lying. I'm just saying why would you believe them. I don't believe anything the ama says. I don't believe anything thao she says. I don't believe anything the. Cbc says there was no reason to believe them. They don't always lie. No liar always lies but they have an agenda beyond science. That's why they lie. Get it there. Was something much much much higher for walinsky. The others then science. It's being as they call today. Woke progressive politics is infinitely more important than science. Science is nothing progressive politics. is everything. get it. We are in the early dark ages where religious doctrine trump's science today it is non religious doctrine that trump's science. Why do you believe anything they say. Do you believe that children are not born male or female. Do you believe that

You need to read understand your needs and then you may ask someone else to fulfill your needs by. You cannot impose it because if you impose said than you are a little child mommy daddy like i'm screaming like you need to feed me. You need to do whatever but instead as adults is about. Okay these on my needs. I willing and able to fulfill that. I have this need for connection intimacy in loud like i willing to enable to meet me there and then not getting really frustrated like why can you not meet my knees like why do you can you. Just give me love. Sometimes it's not even that like people don't even know that they need love and then get frustrated of all the rubbish like. Why don't you never take rubbish like you don't care about religion so because they don't know that emotion is so they just like buying the triggers to post i kind of journeys that emotion but really. There's always something deeper going on. But we really aware adults. We can understand now needs and not imposed on someone else. But just you know say like these. My needs end events Another person to meet the needs is actually. I win relationships right like we are. We don't have to be codependent. But we interdependence so.

"That the deeper level or the more medal level Knowing and thinking carefully about the laws of physics and the way nature works does affect how i think about life right now i think about what life is the meaning of life the morality of different actions. What will happen when life ends all of those things. Which are very important thing is right. These are important things in their metaphysical questions in some sense and to me. Metaphysics is extremely informed by physics. How could it be any other way so not. There's a simple direct line that i can draw between the two sets of questions but i certainly think that one affects the other important intricate complicated ways. Okay lou guyer's says. I don't know how to pronounce your name. Sorry about that lou says. Is there anything interesting to say about gravitons. In the absence of a theory of quantum gravity for instance kenna gravitons escape from a black hole Yeah there's plenty of interesting to say about gravitons because we even though we don't have the full theory of quantum gravity. We do have two things daily. We have a good theory of classical gravity general relativity and we have quantum mechanics and there are very basic robust features of what happens when you take a classical theory. And you quantifies it in some sense so there will be gravitons. If you believe in general relativity and you believe in quantum mechanics you should believe in gravitons to believing gravitons does not mean that you need to think you have a full theory of quantum gravity or any full complete robust understanding. What's facetime even is there. Are things called phones. You've heard of photons. Photons are the particles of light but we also have in addition to classical electro magnetic waves. Which you then qantar to get photons. We have classical sound waves right there. Classical waves that you're listening to right now and you're listening to my voice you could ask. Could you quantifies them and get particle like expectations of sound. The answer's yes absolutely. Because you don't need to know that the sound wave is made out of atoms bumping into each other. There's a higher level emergent theory of fluid the gas in the air that has equations that it obeys and you can quantify those equations in their that particle expectations in them. Same thing is true with gravity. Now what the fundamental theory is can gravitons escape from a black hole nope because gravitons don't equal gravity okay just like photons don't equal electromagnetism. Photons are the particle like exhibitions of the electromagnetic field. If you had a big classical coherent field around a charge charge of an electron. You shouldn't think of that. As a set of photons there's nothing changing as some big kulam electromagnetic field is sitting there unchanging whereas a photon is a ripple right is a vibration that is traveling at the speed of light likewise black holes gravitational fields that are there and we can define them and measure them. And we've seen their effects. A gravitons will be tiny ripple propagating at the speed of light over in on top of that classical background field and since they move at the speed of light they cannot escape from black holes because you cannot escape from a black hole unless you move faster than the speed of light all right when group two more questions together..

"Were you know running the vietnam war for a long time. There's no obvious idea that. Because if kennedy had been robert kennedy. Bobby kennedy had been elected. He would have gotten us out of vietnam. Politicians are tricky. They say things and they don't end up doing them all the time. So i don't know enough about that era to say how devoted or how influential he would have been actually make that happen. And as far as watergate is concerned watergate was an example of agree gio abuse of power illegal actions on the part of the president but it also led to reforms of the system. You know the ability to have special prosecutors and things like that so maybe it would have been worse overall. If watergate had not happened if i were to imagine ideal histories i would have wanted to stop some terrible massacres tragedies genocides right like the holocaust or various other terrible things that happened. There is a little bit more cut and dried to me that if that had not happened the world would be better on the other hand. I don't know like if it comes to either assassinating or not assassinating one person. I'm not what not at all sure. What would need to happen to guarantee that the holocaust would not have happened. Yeah you can say will kill baby hitler. That's the usual thing to say but it's not at all obvious to me that the social forces wouldn't have led to something more or less similar to what actually happened in world war two. I don't know maybe they wouldn't. But i just don't know claudio slam says about a moua the interstellar visitor. We had that. We talked about with envelope while his speed was notably high for solar system standards twenty six point three kilometers per second relative to the sun. It's still very low. Compared to the speed of light would we have noticed anything weird had the movie was dash been a hundred thousand times faster. Is it conceivable that a material object can be accelerated to relativistic speeds by accession of pushes from stars or other massive bodies so it certainly would have been much weirder if a who's been one hundred thousand times faster so if you think about what is going on in our galaxy the stars moving around and you know with respect to each other and around the center of the galaxy the typical speed you should have in mind is something like a couple hundred kilometers per second okay. Two hundred kilometers per second three hundred kilometers per second something like that. That's the typical speed that stars and other objects have in the galaxy. So that's the speed. You expect everything to have with respect to everything else on average okay. This is why we made the point. That in some sense move. Speed is anomalous. Low twenty six kilometers per second is lower than three hundred kilometers per second but if it had been three thousand kilometers per second that will be an all mostly high and that would be weird. So yes that would be weird. Is it conceivable that something could actually be celebrated that fast. You know it's conceivable but it's very very unlikely Things do get pushed around by passing by stars but it happens slowly and gradually An every little pushes very tiny and sometimes the pushes go in opposite directions from each other right so you certainly do not expect things to be accelerated to very very fast speeds and i should go further than that. You certainly don't expect things to be accelerated to relativistic speeds near the speed of light. Because once they're accelerated to the escape velocity of the galaxy. They escape from the galaxy and they're no longer being accelerated by a gravitational assists from nearby stars. And things like that so there is an upper limit to speeds you expect for things that are galaxy namely the escape velocity. That is fair in christie's says a priority question. You guys are using up your priority questions..

Does the speeding cannibal also entangled with more particles than the tennis ball on its journey. Goods is quite. It took me a while to sort of interpret this question. What do you mean is a big thing in a tiny thing or both moving. The same velocity. Does the big thing entangled with more particles than the tiny thing No roughly speaking. No there's probably some fuzziness around the edges here because quantum mechanics is hard. And it's a lot of approximations were making. But the point is when a big macroscopic object is flying through the air. Roughly speaking islam tangling with anything at all. It's interacting with things right but it's different you know the differences sugars cat okay in the case of sugars cat You have a cat that is in a super position of awaken asleep and that means that the two parts of the superposition of the cat are physically located in different places and therefore a photon that.

The Future of Ecstasy Plus Therapy for PTSD
"We have staff writer and editor kelly cervix. She's here to talk about the future of md m a this is a controlled. Substance sometimes called ecstasy or molly that has had some success in clinical trials for ptsd alongside talk therapy. Okay kelly how you doing. I'm doing okay. How are you sarah. Good i'm good. Let's start with the recent clinical trial results of md m. a. and therapy that was tested on. Ptsd patients. how did that go. How did that work. So there were ninety people in this study who were revised to get kind of a unique course of psychotherapy. They had a series of preparatory sessions with a trained therapist and then they got three eight hour long experimental sessions where they got either. Md ama or a placebo and then they got this series of sort of integration sessions to process that experience and the results were that two months after the last experimental session the difference between the drug and the placebo groups was pretty clear. Sixty seven percent of the participants who got md may no longer met the diagnostic criteria for ptsd at that point compared with thirty two percent of those who got placebo so this is sort of the the biggest and most thorough study of its kind to really find potential benefits of this drug in ptsd. What are the effects of this drug and people. I think maybe from popular culture people might think of it as something you take in a nightclub. Yeah this has definitely a reputation of a club drug that. I think that these investigators are really trying to overcome and may have a lot of complicated mechanisms and we don't understand all of them but it's thought that many of its effects come from its ability to increase certain neuro transmitters in the brain including dopamine and serotonin and so people sometimes described euphoric experience. Sometimes a sense of openness and sort of a heightened ability for empathy and you can imagine that something that in the case of ptsd therapists might aimed to exploit if a trauma survivors facing intrusive flashbacks in israeli avoiding these disturbing memories of something that happened to them. This drug might give them sort of less. Fearful less judgmental state in which to reflect on and process. What happened to them. That's the

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine
European Medicines Agency Finds AstraZeneca Vaccine Safe And Effective
"The committee has come to a clear scientific conclusion. This is a safe and effective vaccine. It benefits in protecting people from covid nineteen with the associated risks from death and hospitalization outweigh the possible risks. That was the head of the european medicines agency. Talking about the astrazeneca vaccine yesterday earlier. This week several european countries suspended the use of the vaccine due to isolate a reports of blood clots so gideon. What does this announcement from. The amine It is a tricky situation over there. So the positives came as several countries in europe dealing with a new surge of cases so there was a lot of urgency and figuring this out really quickly and now the ama has repeated their sense that the vaccine is safe as we heard there but reportedly they're also going to add a warning label to the shot so the medical community can be on the lookout for potential rare complications. They basically reviewed millions of cases they said and found that there was not an increased risk of the clots but this appears to be a precautionary measure given that some of the cases were deadly. They did confirm a small amount of dangerous cases though it's not inclusive whether they were actually related to the vaccine
Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical
Help! My Face is Aging Asymmetrically
"Hi can door love the pod. I'm writing because i'm territory manager for about four years and spend a lot of time in my car driving between many locations like many of us dudakovic. I had not seen photos of myself in quite some time until this weekend in the photo i notice the left side of my face. Driver's side is starting to droop. Slash age more quicker than my right side and it was very noticeable to me. Compared to photos pre covid been working out in the field during this pandemic. I do wear sunscreen. Every day in the summer. I will admit i need to be better during winter. But i'm curious if you have any advice or product rex when only one side slash part of your face slash body is aging faster than the rest realistically. I will be in this job real for at least another few years and only thirty years old any advice would be appreciated. Hope you have a great week. Okay so dory. What are your thoughts. Well i have noticed that. I have more Freckles slash age spots on the left side of my face. ama- driver's side. Yes i am. Also someone who wear sunscreen religiously. But i have noticed this and i'm assuming that that is the cause okay so i had a couple of thoughts one is you said droopy and i wasn't totally sure what you meant but it also made me wonder. Are you sleeping on that side. Because i'd be curious to hear what happens when you start sleeping on your back which is hard if you're not a back sleeper. But it sounds like you might be aside sleeper on your left side. So i can cause the face vaccine caused the face drooping so it might not be just a car. That was my first thought. My second thought is wear sunscreen in the winter where all year round. Don't just wear it in the summer. It should be part of your morning. Skin care routine and you should reapply it throughout the day multiple times. A day ashley since you're in the car so much but don't keep it in the car because it's sensitive to heat. So keep it. In your bag and reapply it. Maybe maybe like every time you get out of the car and get back into the car. Maybe when you get back into the car. You're like okay. Reapply sunscreen keep a powder to power. That's a good idea because that you could keep the car presumably. Yes i like that kate.

"For those who might not have looked at twitter in the last forty eight hours. This all started when mouse sports and astrology decided to boycott their match for a handful of hours over the weekend or not even over the weekend. Was it tuesday. Tuesday tuesday yesterday. Was that just yesterday was yesterday. Oh my oh my the the. I've never seen drama escalate this much. So then they decided to boycott and somehow within twenty four hours every dirt that everyone's been holding on to the players association is all of a sudden coming to light like so to set the stage. The players association boycotted sir. Scoots is an adviser for the players association and more or less. I don't know if he calls himself this but the public voice of is that fair. He's the only one that vocal out of their group at least right so i don't know if he's like official but i'm just telling you from public perception. He is right thornton per flashpoint. Yeah that's exactly right thorn. We'll tell you up and down that he's not the official spokesman for flash points butts bro. Read the room right like yes you are and speaking of now thorne and all this has come to light. I don't even know where to begin with our opinions. I mean maybe we should just kinda give the backdrop as to what's going on a little bit. Okay i'll let you do that so all of this revolving around voice communications <hes>. If you don't know what we're talking about here it's players voice comms getting recorded and then being used out for content purposes. Which as you'll hear us talk about in the interview is probably wanted to best truest forms of content right anytime. There's a live listening with cd l. Or you're watching you know. Nfl films or behind the winter classic or hard overwatch league does the same thing. A lot of funny moments have come from. Listening to player comes in the middle of a match. You know a lot of funny moments of people just gravitate towards that stuff so and so do we like larsen and who is a fan of something and says you know what. I don't eat behind the scene stuff. I'm okay yeah. i don't wanna know what it's like for them. I don't wanna know what's really going on over there. you know. it's it's like it's something. that just intrigues. Everybody fund follow obviously in an and. We're no different in so a issues of competitive integrity started coming up in <hes>. You know players rights. I guess you could say in determining can they have this footage and use our likeness in whatever ways that that they choose to enter the ppa. All along with a couple of the heads of state. I guess you could say like the main people that are involved with the pa from a player's side. Looks like they got together and made some decisions really without everybody being in the know what was going on and so they came out and publicly blasted blast for <hes>. The voice calm situation in having the ability to do so and you know blasts been coming out defending themselves saying like this is conversation with us in the org and you know this is like part of player contracts and ruling. It's just a lot of back and forth. I wouldn't say there's been a lot of confirmation on anything honestly like we're hearing two sides arguing with one another. What essentially happened. Is the players boycotted and delayed matches for blast pro remind you this was like a four hundred k event like this is a very large event that they're doing the senate <hes>. Potentially causing some long term damage with blast and some of their partners right. There's like a rumor that there is a bbc deal on the table and the voice comes. Were a big selling point. You know that could be jeopardizing that deal. Potentially a but a lot of just a lot going on from both sides like with wait. Twenty four hours. It's been a twenty four hour

"Speaking of the future we did get a little taste of the Cold War multiplayer this weekend as they dropped with, , they're calling an Alpha I always think it's cute when these AAA developers drop an open Alpha like this is an Alpha for those who don't know is supposed to be like the rawest form of your game before you really get the kinks worked out an Alpha is not hey, , everyone can download this and play it. . And you're good at Oh. . By the way, , our game is also coming out in like three weeks like that is not how call Beta one, , Beta, , two or something like that. . Alpha's a bit generous to say like Yeah we've never tested this out until right now. . Yeah. . Alpha will figure this all out. . But <hes> give him a minimum project the same time on that though because doing that's going to allow them to see a lot of tendencies catch a lot of bugs. . Yeah. . There's already a ton that we will dive into <hes> but yeah, , like I think. . WHATEVER THEY WANNA call it. . This was a good move on trailer park this very different than how we saw infinity ward handled their game already right. . We already hear about a lot of coming changes issues that we may have right now may even be gone by the time we actually play the next open Beta here in just a few weeks now disclaimer on all this. . This was only on playstation. . So as only on the PS four as far as I know, , it might have been on Xbox to you, , but it was only on console just place it just playstation. . So a nugent did play it the last time I pull the only thing I play my playstation at the moment is for NHL. . That is it like I have a couple of single player games. . That I might hop on here and they're like Spiderman last of us but for the most part, , just NHL I have not played a first person shooter with a controller since call of duty World War Two which I think was the last one not. . So. . That that will. . disclaimer here, , this is just coming from a normal perspective K.. . Yet I could talk about how you know I sucked. . But to be honest I didn't even talk that bad because the auto so ridiculous that it. . Makes me look a little decent little decent. . disclaimer there now, , right off the bat though I will say this and you mentioned it as soon as we started playing when this Moose over to PC and the pros get to play this game on apiece. . Refresh rates and. . Just everything that. . Cleaning it up. . They are going to be blown away. . They're going to perform so much better. . I feel like we're just going to get a better game because I noticed it immediately like right when I got in God we were playing a timid join day. . Twelve map initially because we wanted to try out the new ship NAP and if our modern from not whatever whatever whatever you call it. . Yeah. . Like I mean the ship nap the big ships. . By the way what did I say did I lie when I say any game that has a battleship map on it is already a top five game. . Oh, , very cool map but now that has like three shifts on it that you can jump from ship to ship to ship. . Diving. . In the water getting vehicles, , I'm not saying it's going to be competitive in east sports because it won't be from a casual standpoint run that twenty four, , seven, , I want to twenty four, seven , ship Matt playlist are like that ship nap a lot more than the snow map. . Yeah. . That were for the big map that. . Out on the names of these mounts but yeah, , I mean I noticed it right away like the sixty hertz graphics like it. . All just felt like I was playing on my old computer that I got rid of like a couple years ago. . Now, , you know like it just felt like I was playing on outdated equipment like I was playing things low settings compared to what I'm used to, , and so that was the first thing that I thought of also is man like we're gonNA get a product. . They've ever had before in call of duty lead just right away just 'cause it didn't play bad. . It's just it wasn't as good as you would want it to be you know try and constantly. . Yup. . First thing that hopped out to me. . I, , think overall time to kill. . It feels good. It . is longer than what modern warfare was I kinda like. . Me Too because it was one thing is when you played modern warfare for the first time I, , remember playing the Beta or whatever they called it for modern warfare and I remember I got my first kill and laughed out. . Loud. . How because remember I they started with the foam us in warfare and I laughed at how fast they died. . I took you back. . The hundred fifty HP or whatever they're doing for. . There's like. . It did feel good. . I didn't have an issue with it like I felt like it took. . The right amount of blitz you know just felt it felt okay. . The way I did was I will say this it allows what is a very underrated thing I think modern warfare was missing. . It. . Allows the turnaround kill. . It allows for for that clutch moment to where if someone's coming up from behind, , you can turn around and get them right into had that level of casual level. . It will create that hype. . So I liked not. . Time to that was a big. . That was a big piece of it like I think that. . Just felt good. . Overall map seemed okay a little. . You know they're six we six. . So it's hard to judge. . But seemed I liked him I really like I thought Moscow is I think Moscow is going to be a really fun map to watch on a competitive level especially for before they have some like good wide lanes on there I I love the the lanes that we saw a lot more traditional. . To call of duty than what we saw this past year with modern warfare is you can very clearly conceived distinct three lanes on most of these maps Moscow I thought was really good. . I think satellite is going to be a really fun to watch. . I know <hes> you didn't play too much but I thought satellite was a really good map of Miami. . I have some concerns about just because of the openness of the middle of the <unk>. . But again, , it does at least have the proper three lanes but the really spread out. . So very curious to see how like Miami looks like a five eighty, , five map instead of a four before to me on how it's currently laid out but. . Again. . I really liked him I thought the mouse were good and maybe that's just me grading attempt to light modern warfare maps. . I did not like any of the modern warfare. . Along. . Yeah I was GONNA say it doesn't a lot to be to modern warfare Matt.
