"And then he starts shorting curve on size. Like crazy, he shorts any shorts, any shorts, any shorts any shots. And as he shot in curve, the price of curve comes down and down and done. And there was speculation that he was trying to get the price of curve to 28 cents. So 29 cents. And the reason why is because one of the founders of curve, the sky Michael Agra, has a 48 million has $48 million of credit supplied on our way with the liquidation price at 25.9. So there was speculation that what he was trying to do is he was trying to get to the point. He was trying to short so much to get the price to 25.9. And then what was going to happen is the leverage was going to be then he would have unwanted short. And so everyone starts to short curve, curve goes down, down, down, down, down, at about 43 cents, I realize what's going on. And I think hold on, this is going to be the bar of the century. And then what happens? People start short covering. And more short covering and more short covering, and eventually what happens is the price goes back up to 64 cents. 64.2 cents. I mean, if you want to break down of what actually happened, I'll quickly do. So hold on, there's a better breakdown. I think it's a breakdown of here. Let me just find your cool breakdown. Okay, so what happened? Whales go to Giga short curve on sexes on central asset changes. Whilst borrow curve on our way, sell the coins on this list. So they go to aave, they put down dollar collateral, they take curve, they short curve. They take the curve they shorted on centralized exchanges. As the curve price goes down, wells borrowed more curve to sell on ave, and they keep selling and selling and selling and selling. Once the price is pushed down to go as far as possible, the whales turn long.

Well, victim, who's going to get $40 million plus as his golden handcuffs. But he stayed out of it. Even Jack Dorsey got in the middle. I grow all just, you know, set quiet. He said, I'm super excited about the opportunity looking forward to working closely and finding ways to use your time as effectively as possible to improve Twitter in the public conversation. Great message to Elon. They had a couple of back and forths. But Agra wall, every point stayed classy. Elon texted him April 5th would be great to unwind permanent bands, you know, that is, except for spam accounts and those that explicitly advocate violence, I don't know why I have such a hard time saying, I gra wall. Agrawal did not respond. Okay. Instead, I grow all invites must to talk about a specific technical ideas asking him to treat me like an engineer instead of CEO, I promise I'll evaluate proposals neutrally. I want to hear all the ideas and I'll tell you which ones will make progress on versus not, and why. In other words, he'd stayed classy, man. So in all of this, props to two people, piragua, I grow all the seat current CEO. I would say interim CEO of Twitter. And the judge, Kathleen McCormack, who I think pulled off a pretty savvy coup that worked. By releasing at least his first trench of messages and saying, there are more to come. I think I can channel Stacy right now to say we've done Elon. We are done. I tried to end it a while ago. We are done. We got to talk about stadia.

"And rush would he had a famous kind of Christmas series he would do and a famous Thanksgiving series he would do. Talk to us more about the man of that rush was just his optimism doing three hours of radio a day. I could say from personal experience, two hours is a lot. He would do three hours almost no gas collars on only one day open line Friday. Just talk to us about the man. How much prep did he put in? How much study did he do? Tell us from your inside perspective. I'd be so fascinated by that. Rush never stopped working. And this was his work ethic was was astounding. Russia would get to the studio at 8 o'clock in the morning or 8 30 ish. And prep right up until the time of the show. So three hours. Wow. Okay. But, but it didn't end there. After he left the studio, sometimes we'd be around the three of us that were there in there with him during the chinsky. Austin Agra Russia stenographer and Brian Johnson, his engineer in Florida. We have another engineer in New York, Mike ramone who's been with us for 30 years, over 30 years. And if we stayed around the studio, about 40 minutes after he left, Russia's printer would start firing off. What stories for the next day? And it could go on and on and on. He would take a break. I don't know saying he worked around the clock, but he really did work all the time. He said, he used to say show prep, life is show prep. Life is show prep. And he brought so many things of interest to the show, things that interested him. But more to the point to me was this was a man that studied this medium. He wanted to be a broadcaster at age 6. At age 6, he had a little toy that was put out. I think by remco or one of the toy companies where you can broadcast inside your house. So he had the microphone he had his toy set rigged up and would broadcast to his mother. He knew what he wanted to do from the time he was a

A highlight from Optometry Podcast: Transitions XTRActive Polarized and Transitions XTRActive New Generation Lenses.

"And we want to get into. The details of these products will begin start offering our patients are. We'll talk about extra active polarized i. It was showcased at vision. Expo east and the transitions. New generation lenses were demonstrated at the transition to the studio in jean. What was the driving force behind those two new product introductions for twenty twenty one i would have to say it's definitely innovation. Innovation is it's part of transitions. Dna as you know. We have a team of our d. scientists that are constantly trying to improve our products. Improve the or clarity improve. The outdoor darkness color perception activation invade speed. And it's through this innovation that we've been able to extend the transition's extra active line of lenses with these new launches dot governor. You're there you've got to see this product in person. And i mean what would what happened at the transition. The studio in the transistor's the pulse. We'll let me tell you. When i saw this technology fell out of my chair because i was blown away i mean innovation innovation innovation. When they say that it's in the dna it truly is. I mean we've seen that over the years of prescribing from the chair of educating our patients and the one thing we know that our patients love definitely innovation so to be able to go into the exam room and have this conversation after. I saw this amazing technology by patients. Were just blown away. Just like i was so for me. It was an exciting day. Exciting time and just super exciting technology and innovation in general. I think this phase into mine because there is polarized dishes lennon's that's been available now was ago transitions vantage. It was the first bit acrylic lens to offer variable polarization. How does this new transitions. Extra active colorized blends differ. Well for those transitions vantage fans. Let's start off. What's the same transitions extracted. Polarized lenses are clear with a hint of ten indoors in offer dynamic polarization. Meaning they go from clear to extra dark and polarize when activated and transitions extract. Polarized differ from transitions vantage lenses. In a few ways these are now clear than ever indoors. We've added visible light activation in the car they reach up to ninety percent polarization and they're twice as fast feedback. There's are major. Improvements is huge. I mean that's one thing that we always want to see it better with innovation and technology. Right we have this conversation with our patients A lot of times they think of the old school way of how lenses were and now we have something that we can bring to the tablist going to really Satisfy their thirst when it comes to lens technology. Yes a really patients have everything they loved about vantage in transitions extractive polarized or with sharper vision. Larger field of view and more vivid colors that brings to mind a natural question little transitions. extract polarized. Replace the transitions vantage linda. Lenses yes as we continue to launch roll out the transitions extract of polarized products. We will begin. Phasing out transitions vantage nice. Nice so i want to talk about another polarize option. Because i know that the transitions portfolio is just wide. I mean you have pretty much anything you can think of to accommodate any patient that sitting in front of us. But how does the transition extract of polarized compared to the transitions drive where Because i know that's another option. That's out there as well. So what's the difference in. How do they compare to each of it. Well it can about it. You know we we did. Just talk about the benefits of transitions. Extract polarized lenses and there are a great option. Your primary care because they're clear indoors and at night now. Transitions drive where lenses. they're always polarized. And the photo comex they start off all color and then adapt between three colors specifically designed for different driving scenarios and they adapt to light behind the windshield and outdoors. So you're really getting a length that helps remove glare off the road and hood of your car So it really helps for peach picture. Perfect drive i would say transitions drive. Lenses are a great option as a second pair especially for anybody that spends part of their driving. The driver is almost like a sophisticated son. Last is going to agra. Adjust that it's never gonna be your indoor pair of lenses for that transition extract polarize could take you indoors two outdoors. Yes absolutely. We've seen a lot of questions on social media you know. Color hugely mirrors are hugely. End and transitions has done a great job of answering the call to bring the people what they want so some of the questions. We've been seeing at around. Social posts are are the transitions extract. Polarized lenses gonna be available in other colours. Rick mears

"Marketing sales team wants to data right now. Nuts three months from now. So it's not really practical to go through all that complexity of the code because of those reasons anytime you say the words high-performance computing you say high-performance. That's good. you say compute. That's fine but if you put them together. A lot of people get scared from users to enterprises to investors. They just don't like these three wars together because it has never worked for the enterprise. It's just too complicated. Bodo we believe for the first time democratize is high performance computing for regular developers. Because you don't need to write low level code you'll go this tight on and high level and you don't even need to learning late is so we believe we are bringing to the enterprise for the first time and as a result we believe we are democratizing machine learning. Ai because yes what. The big tech companies are actually using hvac for their yard. They're actually using kiai and all the right techniques internally but the rest of the world has to take advantage of the same techniques. So that's on the compute side and the program. Ability sipe from agra make point of view that day top locations are really parallel computer applications and fit. Hpc paradigm betty. Well so if problem has been solved decades ago. Why not. Just use it. I mentioned shuffle. You exchanging data this so-called. All tall operation has been solved thirty forty years ago and this npr implementation. Everyone has optimized including cloud grow wider by the way some of the largest supercomputer Supercomputers in the world are in the cloud and they have all the benchmarks everything so why not use all the development for decades in that ecosystem. The same problems now. All these data problems are essentially parallel algorithms in china. Come some subset of scientific computing that needs to be so so that would have films are hvac and there is no distinction. Any other solution a workaround for them on the infrastructure side and the machine side yes..

"Th the the. The president of agra was before that a president of agra since two thousand fourteen of before that she was the secretary of agriculture. In rwanda from two thousand eight two thousand fourteen i i mentioned this because Positive her credentials for heading up. This summit is that under her tenure. You saw a huge increase in the amount of coal and that was produced. May's output from twenty six thousand six hundred nineteen Increased fourfold and rice harvest doubled and that kind of success story coming from africa was part of the reason. Why the secretary general appointed but unfortunately Agra this alliance for a green revolution in africa is driven. I mean hasn't had mixed results and even in rwanda while the amount of food has gone up. Hunger has chronic. Hunger is increased by forty percent over the same period and so has the number of people who are undernourished. Now what this means is that we need to very closely. At what agra is and how it operates was set up by the bill and melinda gates foundation the rockefeller foundation in two thousand six. The goal there was to bring better agricultural practices to thirty million of people across thirteen countries in sub saharan africa and You know a billion dollars. Later a lot of those dollars coming from the bill and melinda gates foundation but also from the states agency for international development and other countries The results have been fairly grim So again just this little cliff notes version here and this is comes from x. research by academics like t. tim wise at tufts university. But what we've seen is that. In the countries where agra operates there's been a thirty percent increase in the number of people who are suffering hunger and the agricultural productivity kind of the same as it was before agra began But what agra is is a way of locking in a certain kind of way of doing agriculture where you increase productivity and hope that the money that generates for certain kinds of commas trickles down to end hunger and we've seen from agra's owned data at fails on its own terms you said Raj that this summit is taking place on the initiative of the un secretary general. Could you also talk about the role of the world economic forum how that's informed the content of the summit and who participates. Well certainly the ideas that you'll see floating around and the kinds of language that you see floating around The the summit abera striking resemblance to the sorts of ideas that come from the world. Economic forum's sustainability roundtables and corporate driven missions to try. And do something about hunger. And i i i think that When we hear a little bit. More about multi stakeholder ism from from chamonix l. in india We'll we'll really be able to get under the hood of this but the idea here is that corporations fully understand that if we ought to have zero hunger their bottom lines against be targeted You know many of the world's largest food corporations Recognize already the they are producing food. That he's not making the world healthy A leaked report leaked in the financial times. Either on this year showed a. I believe it. Sixty percents of nestle's food failed to meet even the very basic definition of of healthy Output and i think ninety eight percents of nestle's noncoffee beverages. Water beverages are considered unhealthy corporations. You know that the number is up and when they understand that There are going to be regulated in that profits are going to be hit. Because how else are they going to a guy to be able to end hunger among the poorest but by paying them more which means corporations will be earning less profit they want to be on the inside of this regulation game and they want to control the terms on which policy is set and so you've got organizations within the the the sort of un food system summit in some of the pre-summit meetings who represent industry There was a greenpeace reported yesterday. That the international meet secretary at for example in the national poultry council were part of the stakeholders who around the table talking about livestock and sustainability. And the you know the council was saying the only way for us to have a really sustainable future is to have more meat. Production in the global north because if it goes to the global south that will be poorly regulated which is a spectacularly disingenuous argument to be making but of course the y- they can make this argument uninformed by the science of sustainability that says that industrial meat production is one of the drivers of climate change and we've seen in the united states industrial meat production was One of the industries that put people particularly low income communities and People of color in the front lines of covert because of the you know the opening of slaughterhouses in the in the pandemic this powerful industry is largely immune to the best practices that we see emerging from the scientific community and the consensus we see emerging from the scientific community around climate change around poverty But they're there at this summit because they considered stakeholders and that idea of having all the stakeholders around the table together Is something that characterizes this summit. That's why you'll hear from the summit that you. We invited everyone to come in those. You know those those movements outside. We invited them in that. They chose not to be here. But you know the philosophy of multi and that was transported from the world economic boom to this summit Is that you have everyone around the table. Murderers and victims And they try and reach reach a consensus and of course. That's not how we're going to end hunger. And that's that's one of the reasons. Why so many organizations are on the outside of the summit protesting it's process and trying to moderate The more dangerous effects of its outcomes talking to raj patel research professor at university of texas austin. his piece and scientific american is headlined. Agroecology is the solution to world hunger. Next up Will be continuing with the raj and go to ethiopia and india as well as we talk about hunger.

"That they talked to us about with the lightning. Which is that pickup trucks right. Now are probably the most resistant to changing to ev. Which is hilarious considering they benefit the most from it. But that's a whole another like if we're talking about pickup trucks coming in. If pickup truck drivers would to have that experience that they just had with machi it would be it would be detrimental not just ford f. One fifty. But i think to pick up the in general because it's going to be one of the first really big ones we see and i think they have a year to know six months maybe six months to a year to really bigger this out before the f. one fifty laundry i think it could be really really bad for just it's hard. It's the hardest thing right. Like i wanna know again like. The monkey is like a pretty decent car. Actually like a lot of its parts are really nice. The is pretty nice. It was pretty nice. The dry blues blue crews don't blues about to ask about that is good We can talk about that a little bit more insect too but like it's a pretty decent car and if you are not going road trip if you're plugging in every night you only go. Within two hundred miles blind people could use this every day and they would have any problems. Yeah a lot of people take one road trip once in a while. It's a very small consideration and you plan very heavily around. Most people aren't buying the car based on the road trip But also there's i just want to mention there's a couple of variables for each car that could affect obviously were on different rosa different times. Different amounts of traffic things like that. The wheels and tires. I wanted to mention because people always want to bring us up. The twenty one inch wheels with the sport tires on the model s. Plaid are rated for three and fifty miles. The nineteen inch. Wheels would have eric and it would be rated at three hundred ninety miles. Yeah that's a fun fact. there's also a long range model s that gets four hundred to something like that. Yeah so that exists. We also could have used a long range car and they would have never mile left and it was over four hundred miles of range of asset. A trip for the whole thing just like counselor rains miles per gallon. And nothing's rated. It was twenty three twenty eight highway. I think we were averaging like thirty two thirty three miles per gallon now. Most of our driving was all highway highway. Like for all of us. There's very few backroads is very hint for the for the blue crews as well it was it was great to just like go on and we were all. That's because they're also yeah. Yeah are back. Roads were basically like highways. Though i mean not a lot of cars. There is a point where we didn't see a car behind as for probably like an hour house like two hundred miles in a row of a single lane. Road has great. I was between placid and agra those so all will land on this last point which is like quality of life. Yeah which is like okay once in a while. Let's say you do go on a road trip. How how comfortable is the car like. We were talking about co hi. I've never done a thousand miles and a car like this but these seats are great. And i feel fine after thousand miles which is like pretty great. I feel like the fatigue factor of like going in thousand miles and having to think for a thousand straight miles about the steering wheel is is reduced by having some sort of adaptive cruise control experience. I've seen some videos about blue. Crew's yeah. I've never tried it so i'm really curious. I'm gonna watcher footage later. But how did that go with the so Yes so for those. Who don't know ford has kind of a thomas driving. It's not a ton of people. Get mad at us all the time for saying this. Yeah but it's it's sort of like occurs control thing called blue crews and what you told me when i told you about it yesterday was that. It's very similar to early autopilot. Yes and so basically you can turn it on. And it'll it'll drive for you and you can set a speed. There were so many weird quirks about it though. 'cause like you can set a max speed but then randomly later like you'll just be coasting and we would set it at seventy five. Because i was the max. Speed we agreed. We would all go randomly. It would just kick up to like ninety and every single time it would kick up. It was always twenty miles speed limit. And i was like why is like. Is this legal ticket mood. It was very weird and it would just do it without asking you and it was just. It was so confusing And then they have like these animations to show like when it's full blue cruise mode when it's in lake. You don't have to use the pedal but you still need to steer that kind of mode and it. You told me that like you saw video or something where anytime it would start to go around a curve. It would just freak out. it would just it would disengage. This was better than that It could occurs but it is. It was much worse. Ad going around the curves because he would not turn nearly enough in would almost always the wheel would almost always touch like the bumps on the road that tries to like keep you off of rumble strips or like the yellow strip or whatever it was would almost always touch that and multiple times when it was like in full blue cruise mode. I have my hands on the wheel and it would kind of go around the turn but it would not take it tight enough nearly tight enough so kinda do this thing where it was. Start to turn but then it would recognize. It didn't do it nearly tight enough and then it was like jar to the right and like it just kept doing this and it got really uncomfortable a couple of times where we would go on those rumble strips. And just start going or there'd be like you know. We were doing super far across america. So there's just tons of trucks everywhere and there was the there would be these trucks in the lane next to us and we get like really close to that truck and i just i just didn't feel super comfortable the use But for like for the instances where we would just be going pretty much straight. Maybe you curves for like an hour it was. It was really nice like you. Don't your brain doesn't have to be one hundred percent on. It has to be like eighty percent on. So i have a couple of comparisons autopilot that i want to ask you about number one early versions of autopilot would sort of have this weird like ping pong behavior. They'd bounce back and forth on the sidelines which sounds like what you're driving especially in turn and the news version on. This car is very very smooth. Which is nice. Even sometimes they would approach a curve and slowly slow down a little bit to make that curve a little gentler and then speed back up to speed side like that but there is also a a certain length of time where it will ask you to touch the wheel or apply light for us to the yolk in this case just to make sure you're still paying attention. Yeah you told me. Years was very different experience. It'll start flashing on the word alike beep at you and if.

Good and i make twenty five dollars in it. Clears out all the riffraff. And it's just him. And i he had left the gun. He called twenty five. I've queen jack off. Suit in the position falcons nine seven six. Okay and it's rainbow he checks. I'm just checking here. And that hit says rain. I think and it turns six and now he leads forcefully in. This is different when someone who's in there trying to win money leads forcefully you can float and you can do all kinds of things when someone who's in there just to have a good time leads forcefully an older distinguished gentleman. You just take it for what it is. Here's a good hand. He doesn't know. Exactly why is leading a bunch on nine seven six six and i folded queen jack and he showed me eight six suited. So i had this hand pegged and not literally. I didn't peg this hand. But you know what i mean and i know i know this this player type too right. You just gonna bet a lot when he is good hand. And he's not really thinking about anyone else's hand or any of that shit because honestly like he's just doing well in life to to care about that. Shit it seems. Like and now the straddles. On in this kind of agra player opens and people call and i've puckett nines in straddle and this is close if i've tens it's just so close i've tens i think three and a good amount right because i didn't think the opener he's the opposite a week. He's just not fooling bunch nine out of position but nines is a good hand. It's just closed. I decided to flat instead of three bet. And when we go four ways those flop flops goods four four six two hearts. I lead into the field right. It's it's not going to be exploited it just it's unexplainable and the box calls superwide in the opener folds right he probably had cards and now the solid surfer calls and four four six two hearts. I don't wanna see a heart of hearts. That'd be sweet. The turns an ace interesting card. I check heads up. Maybe bet again but three way. I check the box. Checks and other solid surfer eighty. And i'm not sold on it. I don't believe it really doesn't seem. I don't know i call in the box caused too. I have no idea what he's doing. And the river is a heart seven hearts and now we both checked and now the solid surfer beds a real amount and We both fold the flesh got there and he looks back at his cards and i'm almost positive. He made a flesh when people looked at their cards. They're not they're not trying to needle you. It's unintentional needle but they. They usually have a hand that made something on the last card..

Fire for being racially insensitive. The new brand will be called the pearl milling company. The products still look a lot like they always have. The company kept the packaging design with its signature bright red and mouth-watering images of pancakes drenched in butter and syrup but the image of a smiling black woman is gone and so is the name. The name is the original moniker of the missouri company that i developed the self rising pancake. Mix the company patented the product under the aunt. Jemima name you'll start seeing the new packaging on store shelves in june. You'll recall last summer. When the black lives matter movement shined a spotlight on inequality in brands were forced to do some self examination during that time. Many companies that were using racially insensitive or racist imagery vowed to make changes. During that time. Conagra brands switch manufacturers. The mrs butterworth's brand of syrups and pancake mixes issued a statement that it was undertaking. A complete brand review of its mrs butterworth's lines but unlike its competitor the company stopped short of saying it would drop the name and image critic said that the syrup bottle shaped like a matronly woman was also based on a racial stereotype. But there is no word yet on agra brands plans for mrs butterworth or the state of the review process.

Hormel Wraps Fans in Bacon-Scented Masks

"Tomorrow is you know what it is it's Halloween for some adults. Candy isn't much of a treat though as we age many of US start to crave savory over sweet for some that's a pungent blue cheese for others. The treat of choice is bacon. We all know the person who cannot resist the sizzle. And ascent of perfectly frying Bacon, which is why this weekend some people are certain to be wearing the latest swag for Hormel foods. That's the nine billion dollar Minnesota Company that owns Hormel Black Label Bacon beginning back in mid October hormel began promotion giving special face masks to a select number of pork. Loving fans what made these masks so special. Well, each ask was infused. With a set of Bacon. Presumably some people would love to have that delicious sent with him night and day regardless of whether there's a strip of the real stuff anywhere nearby Hormel ran its oddball campaign through the twenty eight. The company says millions of people requested masks. Obviously, the campaign was intended as an attention getter. Those requesting masks were encouraged to pose the HASHTAG breathable Bacon on social media and Hormel pushed winners to post photos of themselves wearing the masks, which, of course, featured Bacon Strips on a black background. The campaign had a serious side though for every mask set requested for promised to donate a meal to the Anti Hunger nonprofit feeding America up to ten thousand meals. Could also have been seen as the brands way to encourage people to mask up the message from Hormel though was next Nick Schweitzer senior brand manager of Hormel black. Label. Bacon. Said on a podcast called Agra talk we're not trying to fuel any debate on whether we love or hate masks or if you should wear them or not. But he admitted that Hormel wanted to learn whether they could successfully infuse bacon sent into masks and quote inspire some folks to wear them. Okay then. So Howard Bacon sales faring with everyone eating comfort food at Home Schweitzer says Bacon sales have never been stronger prior to the pandemic after years of so-called Bacon Mania sales of cured pork had been on a slow decline according to market researchers statistics still the average American eats several pounds of Bacon a year. Now, while that pandemic induced stress eating, it appears we're eating even more and apparently there's something about pork that inspires companies to play with their food. Oscar Mayer is famously known for its wiener. Mobile, which I debuted in nineteen thirty six away for the brand to bring some humor and happiness to a country reeling from the depression according to The New York Times Cove nineteen prompted Craft Heinz Jones Oscar.

Social distancing rules in place by the way the company says anyone relishing a visit with the wiener mobile can just requests the rolling Pantheon of lunch meat by contacting the company and okay the Wiener. Mobile. Obviously promotes hotdogs but I'm pretty sure love for the wiener mobile spills over into Oscar. Mayer's Bacon sales after all the brand is the nation's second biggest bacon sellers to reports back at Hormel. Well, the breathable bacon mask is hardly the Minnesota brands first pork. Inspired stunt for years back for black label invented a motorcycle that ran on Bacon Grease staffers drove it across the country to film a mini documentary with consumers and yes. Even the exhaust smell like Bacon Hormel. SNICK. Schweitzer says that motorcycle so far no plans to build it in volume took a Lotta Greece to fuel that cross country trip about those delicious masks. Hormel Schweitzer says it takes a lot of bacon grease to get these masks to smell this. Good. Maybe they could try motorcycle helmets with all this humor. If the pandemic boosted bacon sales brands that sell the stuff, want to make sure those sales don't flag. Of course, the last thing they want us for Americans to return to good for you plant based diets, readable bacon masks, or just one small way to keep the momentum of and keep those pork sales sizzling along.

Why did Victoria hesitate to remove restrictions?

Coronacast

Why did Victoria hesitate to remove restrictions?

"We've been holding our breath until yesterday for an announcement on as restrictions in Victoria but it didn't come even though the fourteen day average rolling average is now down below five, which was the threshold of opening up. So why has the Premier Daniel Andrews delayed announcing an easing of restrictions as we said, many times on Krona casts that average of five is not really a terribly meaningful figure and as you get done to low numbers, what counts is in fact, the outbreak status of the virus. and. He you got this outbreak in the northern suburbs. Kind of reprises what happened at the beginning of the second wave in that corridor and the uncertainty that comes with it. So I, think you can take a kind of conspiracy theory to this that it's not being transparent or you can actually imagine what's going on there and I suspect this is taking advantage of the situation that we're still in lockdown taking advantage in a good way or in a bad way. Neither really it's more that the don't fully what's going on. It's clear from a few things that we've seen this probably started with the hospital break and then spread to the suburbs, and it just shows yet again can start from small beginnings. This is quite a significant outbreak. They think they know where every getting it from and they've tied at down but that's the key question. The irony here is that if this happened two weeks from now, let's say for example, yesterday they announced the lifting of restrictions and you've got this outbreak two weeks from now there's no way they would have reimposed lockdown. They were done their best to cope with it. I think what they're doing is being simply pragmatic in the saying okay. We've got lockdown going. Let's just not lifted up quite yet tour. Absolutely sure. We've got this nailed because there's no going back from here and I really think it's as simple as that unless we're not getting the full story I just think it's we can't go back. Let's keep it going the other thing that they might be. Thinking about here is chemical back to where we came into the story back in June. July which is if you remember rightly they ring thirty six suburbs I it was ten post codes, but that didn't work back then but they didn't have mask wearing and the weren't very restricted really at that point. So it's not surprising that didn't work but are they thinking right now that they might actually. Continue the lockdown in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and everywhere else go I mean that would be difficult thing for them to do politically and a very difficult thing emotionally and psychologically for a lot of Melburnians. So I suspect it's buying them at a time just to make sure they've got it nailed they've been through a lot of pain already you could imagine that you wouldn't want to throw it away. If you thought that there was the potential for it to flip back up again but it's big ask and you said before Norman that perhaps we need more transparency from Victoria, what do you mean by that I think is more transparency now than there was, but you just get the feeling sometimes you're not getting the whole story. And when you shoot probably be getting more information than you are but I suspect that they. Simply. Don't know I mean the most kind explanation is probably the most pragmatic which is. CONTACT TRACING IS PR- getting pretty good on Fridays are in breakfast which I was hosting I interviewed professor. Yoon. Wallace who runs contact tracing he was talking through how they really do feel the this. The concentration has improved locked and I specifically asked him about this northern suburbs break and he felt that they didn't fight have that under control. So the feeling pretty optimistic on Fridays or something's happened Friday and Sunday, but it may just be that they didn't have all the information and they just won't that another couple of days in lockdown. So we know that coronavirus isn't the only health problem facing people in Victoria because we're human beings and we're dealing with all sorts of things and one of the really big things that perhaps we should be giving. More, attention to on corona cost is the mental health side of things. We've had a question or comment from someone who lives in Melbourne saying the haven't left home since July, and now they're afraid to go out not because I might get covid nineteen. But because they're afraid of what they'll find in the world will their favorite shops and cafes be shutdown will be taming the Christmas shoppers or will they be ghost town? Everyone's wearing mosques they to Costra phobic Agra phobic self-conscious traumatized to contemplate it. So how do they explain that they still can't leave they? Even though they not locked down and how do they get help I'm so sorry to hear this comments and I suspect you're not alone. But you need help. I knew actually help very quickly because what you're showing signs of is really quite an of a serious anxiety issue. And you've got to actually get that sorted out and you can get it sorted out by speaking to a psychologist and entering into some cognitive behavioral therapy with a psychologist can talke through this get down to the bottom of your thought processes and really readjust you're thinking you should not continue to feel like this. First of all is agony for you. Secondly, there's no shame in it, and thirdly there is help. So the best thing I can probably suggest. Is the beyond blue coronavirus helpline where they will be able to find you help and that's on one, eight, hundred, five, one, two, three, four, eight, one, eight, hundred, five, one, two, three, four, eight.

Before the pandemic, the mom single, you slapstick woods with going out but particularly the case in developing countries where you've got a rising middle class, the condemn any exacerbated that trend and winning your investigation found was that big oil companies are hoping for a continually realising demand for new plastic, which is also made from fossil fuel. So they see that as a growth opportunity for their industry, right? That's correct. You're seeing oil and gas companies struggling. During the pandemic is your price has has dropped but as a longer term trend as we move towards electric vehicles greener energy. That is an abundance of cheap oil and gas, and that needs to go somewhere for these companies to remain successful and one of the key growth areas is me plastic for developing economies and that's what we're seeing huge amounts of investments, hundreds of billions of dollars in new petrochemicals, plants as they try and take advantage of that are these same companies that are investing in producing more new plastic. Are they also investing in recycling efforts? So these companies absolutely say that they take the waste crisis extremely seriously and they won't be part of the solution. What investigation was intended to do was to interrogate that claim I'm what we found was the investments they're making in recycling a vague and those ones that could be calculated or fraction of the money that they're spending on expanding plastic production. So the situation you have is you're trying to upper floor with a hand towel while the bosses Agra flying. Then instead of tying the topples, you start increasing the pressure. Okay we'll your investigation also found that the price of new plastic had dropped significantly during this pandemic as a result of these cheaper oil prices. So what does that mean overall for the business of recycling business being catastrophic for some smaller recycling firms because covid has led to a flawed using lease plastic but dropped the price at new plastic. So it's very difficult for those companies to compete and ready operating on extremely find margins. I mean, we should remind everyone that recycling was never going to be the solution to all the excess plastic trash produced worldwide right? Exactly. I think what's important for people to understand is that only a fraction of plastic gets recycled also most bostick cannot be recycled since nineteen fifty, six point three, billion tons of plastic waste being produced ninety one percent of has not been recycled. So can I just ask you then what do you think is the answer taller this Recycling, shutting the caught, the answer, a huge amount of investment needs to go into that from governments from consumer goods, companies to the plastic producers themselves. But is another elephant in the room here, which is we need to stop producing so much single use plastic on ultimately what it comes down to is profit margins versus the good of the planet climate on some of the poorest communities in the world right.

With Milk Sales Up, Dairy Industry Revives Iconic Got Milk Campaign

"From, wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday August twenty seventh something strange happened over the last few months we started drinking milk again think it might have had anything to do with pandemic for the last several years. It's felt like the dairy industry been singing swan songs milk sales fell thirteen percent from twenty ten to twenty eighteen according to CNN I one dairy. Then another collapsed under the weight of competition from plant based drinks soy almond, coconut, banana, Oat flax all. Those plants were out to get poor daisy the cow the dairy industry was so freaked out that it launched a pilot lawsuits against makers of those plant based drinks trying to forbid them from using the very word milk. You can't squeeze milk out of another grain they said but for the moment, at least dairy farmers are experiencing a bit of relief with. So many of us eating more meals at home, we're guzzling the white stuff again, it's long been true that milk drinkers tend to drink milk. Not at restaurants. So lockdowns have in fact, helped the dairy business cow's milk sales rose about twelve percent over last year for the twenty weeks ending. July eighteenth CNN reported your kid and mind mindlessly grabbing a swig from the carton added up to four and a half billion dollars in sales this spring, and that has spurred the dairy industry to revive an iconic ad campaign. Remember got milk. Vast company called it one of the most famous ad campaigns in history that campaign was launched in Nineteen ninety-three, its message, whatever you do don't run out of milk over time three hundred celebrities including Britney Spears Dennis Rodman Bill Clinton, and the simpsons all appeared sporting those milk mustaches. The ads became enormously popular by the end of the campaigns run in two thousand, fourteen, ninety percent of all adults were familiar with got milk to Huffington Post Contributor Gene Delvecchio but there was one a little problem. The ads didn't actually work over that same time milk sales declined steadily soda consumption bubbled over guess what those Soda Lovers used to drink you got it delvecchio a former AD industry executive argues the got milk ads were like bringing peace shooters to a gunfight, the gunfight being Pepsi and Coke Monster Marketing Budgets while the to soda makers battled each other milk lost but the dairy industry apparently believes their campaign was effective embracing Estonia the industry's marketing arm milk. PAP has revived the got milk campaign today's ads bear little resemblance to the Owens though. Sure there's still some celebrities Olympic gold medal swimmer Katie decades, viral tiktok video showing her perfectly balanced a glass of milk on her head while swimming a lap. That's certainly a turned heads but the bulk of today's campaign features, regular folks and a ton of user generated content milk drinkers were urged to do silly things with milk and boy did they respond people open gallons of milk with their toes jumped into kiddie pools filled with milk and cereal according to the trade paper? Agra. News will this generation's got milk ads do anything to keep the cow's milk train going if the wildly popular ad campaign of your didn't work well. Be Hard pressed to say that this one is a better peashooter. The dairy industry itself is making predictions. They say they're simply celebrating the quarantine induced sales boost. What is true however is that the competition from those plant based rivals is only getting. Over the same twenty weeks that saw a twelve percent rise in dairy milk sales oat milk sales went through the roof up two, hundred, fifty percent. Of course, oat milk sales are still tiny compared to cow's milk. They totalled only one, hundred, thirty, five, million dollars, but other signs point to the continued aggressive challenge from those gentle plant based alternatives. Oatley the. Leading oat milk maker recently attracted two hundred million dollars in investment funding from blackstone and Oprah it hopes to go public next year according to Forbes, and on Monday good Karma, a maker of flax milk bought itself back from bankrupt dean. Foods investors are Thurston lapping up all of these cream alternatives and no matter how beloved the Got Milk Gad's once were. All this competition puts a whole lot of pressure on twenty twenties version of the same campaign.

For the Love of 'Bugs' (Insects) With Entomologist Nadia Ruffin

"Give us a little bit of sense about what you do every day with your work in entomology, teaching mentoring advocacy. What are you? What do you do Nadia yet? Though currently with agriculture to me. What I do is I go to schools as well as of is. There's organizations in things. And I teach about Agra Science, but into Mali being the main focus, so agro-science is talking about the science of agriculture. Many people the agriculture is just farming agriculture is it's a huge industry is not just farming. There's so many different components to is that people are not even aware of an entomologist one those and so what I do is I bring insects and I actually teach people about the importance of them. I Have Intimacy Club at one school where meet with children every month in every month. I bring a different insect than I educate them about it so I bought a thron. Cockroaches and I told them about the importance of cockroaches. You know cockroaches Christie a bad name because of certain ones that be compelled in our homes, but a reality cockroaches are very vital for the environment. They actually decompose, and they break down things like decomposing plant matter as well as animals in other ways, and if they were not there, what will happen is all that waste would build up, and then no would not break down, and it would just be there in that become toxic things for the environment, so they're very important then I also teach about the things that we use that are derived from. In one thing that I did teach about with silk, people didn't realize it still actually comes from silkworms, and it comes from cocoons in I know I explained to the children. You know this is the process you know. The insect under goals are incomplete metamorphosis, and what we do is we take those cocoons, and the insects are actually killed in the process in a at the learn that you know that that's part of the process, but they actually take three, and they make fabric in. They can make no closing and things for us. Trying to educate people on. Not only the important aspects of insects in the environment. But also insects that we use and the importance of that lead like when it comes to honeybees, we only want them for their honey, but in reality they need that honey to actually survive, so it's it's. Creating that link between human and back to nature and understand why things do things they do, and why they make the things they doing. It's not always for us. It's actors never for US never. You I've been following your work for quite a while now and the cockroach lesson really got me so I really I love the cockroach lesson, and the the kids faces, and and then I have to admit that I don't think I as a grownup educated nature, loving adult realized that the silkworms had to die in order for the the silk to be harvested, so that made me Kinda sad and rethink silk, but give us. The age ranges that that working with at this time, Nadia. Currently I work with children that are in kindergarten all the way up to high school level. All Age. Groups um seniors down to

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

Oscar's Coming Out Story

"How identify is constantly evolving? Rarely but at the moment I'm identify as Trans Masculine Non Binary Sexuality was. I pretty much identifies Pan sexual but I D- tend to bisexual just for the ease of not having conversation about said Pharaoh Enough. So what did he say? Non Binary e dressing and looking Clint David's up and some days you feel more feminine. No I think it's important for people to realize whether they're feeling in particular nor that identity is really an internal thing not necessarily how you how you look to other people for me. A non binary is is that You see gender on a spectrum which is basically how I've always thought of gender and so nobody is absolutely mild or absolutely female. There's always a mix of the two and there's also the complication that gender is on some are also Collection of ideas about how you look or act to other people so I feel like me a lot of the time sometimes I. I feel more of the old me that I feel of the new me. I mean it's very it's a very complicated question basically also like as I got older the idea that I am me in isolation to the world is a bit ridiculous no like I M E in contact with people and situations at any given moment so my identity is as fluid as my gender. And you've had quite a few coming out stories. I've had a series of coming out stories so initially came out as a lesbian as I was growing up. There was very little language or or information about identities other than heterosexual binary gender identities. Tell us where when you were growing up. Well I was born in the seventy s So I grew up in the seventies and eighties ninety s and two thousand and still growing up but I was born in the Midlands in in the Cayenne. When I was about four we moved to Trinidad in the West indies. Which is what my father's from okay. And what was it like spending your formative years and you childhood really in the Carribean. It was in many ways idyllic. It's a beautiful island and it's possibly one of the few places in the world which really celebrates of mixed race identity obviously are mixed race. Many many different ethnicities and Trinidad is one of the few places I've been genuinely celebrate slap. That's good but do they understand gay people because initially you were you were growing up. As a woman came out as lesbian. He added that fail. Yeah I mean I didn't really come out until after I left Trinidad because I was eleven when I left my mom brought back to the UK. I mean I was just touching on the edges of it so when I was in Trinidad we started to have the first sort of stories coming out about the AIDS crisis. I remember that happening and that was probably the first time I'd ever really come into contact with the idea that a man could love a man and a woman could love woman. It was a confusing and also exciting time because I was starting to recognize something of myself in the stories of the people that I was hearing about. But also there's the slight terrible thing happening and essentially this like lots of rhetoric about whether or not. This was something that was supposed to happen if it was a good thing or you know like did God. God punishing gays that kind of stuff and was it. Was it quite homophobic place? Then we'll turn it out Been changing of the last few years is like a head. I pride last year two years ago. The groups who are campaigning for rights. Lgbt plus rights in that country of very vocal and getting a lot of coverage so those very positive but it is a very conservative religious country in the sense that there are lots of very vocal strongly opinionated mainly Christian groups. It's a hotbed of activity for moments and seventh day. Adventists Evangelical Christians who come to do the mission circle missionary. So they're very like the very active dumber. So what was it like going to school in Canada then? It was intense very intense educational program that pushes kids along. It was a difficult time mainly because I was bullied a lot in school for being different as they saw our very masculine girl. He hung around with boys and Didn't really do lots of girl stuff which made me Different did they. Yeah I mean a lot of it was just like a teasing girls. Say things to make me feel like I didn't really fit in or like wasn't doing go right. Anna there was some physical comments and but men mainly was too slight low level humiliation that kind of stuff so sort of processing the fact that he gave you thought. Well Yeah I mean I. I knew I was different. A neo wasn't acting the same way that girls actives but also At that point I hadn't really got the language for a lot of what I how I was identifying. So so you wouldn't necessarily questioning agenda at that point away. Yeah well I was questioning my gender from from with Tommy was a child so I basically I thought I was a boy up until 'cause I as I start to hit school. I had to wear a dress. 'cause I was a girl And up until that point I didn't have to. My mom has no real. She's not strongly set in her generals. The associate she identified herself as a Tomboy when she grew up. She wanted to be a cowboy riding high. Was it when you have to suddenly wear a dress. Then I imagined that was horrific. It was yeah boy shorts underneath my dresses. Go as a way of protecting myself but yeah hated it and also like when I was teased for being in address that was like even more upsetting because it was already vulnerable in address and then I was being made fun of because I was wearing a dress. Did you feel like you were just wearing the wrong clothes when he wore dress? Yes basically Oscar. You're just lucky. Didn't mind mother because I didn't ask Oh uniform. And My mother invented this thing called Dress Tuesdays and she just make me where we address on a Tuesday. I did run on high out really early. And then you didn't wear a dress Carolina absolutely. Yeah I mean I had to wear a dress as my school uniform. So just sucked up. That's what I did. I had to address my first holy communion that was horrific. I mean I only wore it because my mom made it but it was like. Oh it was terrible terrible time and then. I had one dress that had to wear. I think goes on my six birthday and I think that was probably the last time. My mom made me wear dress. She made me wear for my sex birthday party. E and it it was like horrible so yeah. That was the last time she made me do it. Outside of required parameters. I think the first time that you sort of expressed any of this because it was your mom that I come out to. Isn't it? Yeah in terms of sexuality came out quite early so as I moved to the UK was probably like twelve thirty you. She's okay without his like you're part of the family you know that's no it's not. GonNa Change and what about you that my dad was? Okay about Basically my mom told him. I think it's quite amazing. They probably don't see. She went with like hard news off. News is Basically it was like your door is addicted to drugs and she's a lesbian and my dad was like I don't care who. She sleeps with as long as she gets off. The drugs is ready. Basically the the outer now all scattered. I'm guessing at the time that was quite stressful for you and your family about the addiction. Side of things go into substance abuse at a very young age Just about eleven twelve years old. Yeah I basically got into dogs when I came back to the UK. So I came back from what was a very strict conservative school environment where you like stood when they teaches torture you and me entered and left the room to a high school in a one of the more challenging parts of London where kids would throw things at the teacher and tell them to piss off in that sort of stuff so it was. It was a huge culture shock for me and also like just coming into the UK with the levels of segregation and racism that existed compared to the country. That are just come from. That was also heat shock but I came over. I made some friends and within the first year we started experimenting with drugs and stuff so looking back on it now I see. It is a way of coping with what was going on But it didn't it wasn't in any way helpful to me. What were you doing mom asking the short answer to that is whatever. I could get my hands on. I guess in terms of long term use consistent long-term use. It was mainly Paul but there were also other drugs or substances. 'cause I went all drugs involved in that usage through from about up until the age of about the tea when I decided I just couldn't do the study more where I was just using stuff to nominate cope with what was going on drinking as well. No I'm not a fan of alcohol really lucky that way. I don't I don't really drink. So what was eventually made? You think account live like this anymore. I'd been homeless a couple of times and I was staying at my exes flat. She got a place and I just spent a year with a sort of extreme. Kind of Agra phobia had been really depressed and lots and lots of mental health issues and I spent about a year on the sofa refusing to leave the flat and I was basically waiting to die at that point and And I just had this moment where I asked myself radio. Honestly if you were going to die right now would you? Would you just let yourself go and the answer was now? I would try and stay alive and so I thought well if that's true if I really WanNa live them. I should just Kinda try and do that. And that was the start of a very long journey out of mental health in the BC. She's drug abuse issues. And you think all of that was because he was struggling with your sexuality or your gender identity or both Sexuality was never really an issue for me. I always saw that as a soft a software out. My gender identity struggled with a lot more. The first time I tried to broach the subject with my mom. My mom is usually the person I talked to. My Dad's not very like conversational. I just seen a documentary about a trance guy who was going to Amsterdam for the first so of surgeries that they were offering female-to-male people and I was just like wow. That's me you know and I tried to tell my mom and she was. She was freaked out. Boy Boy. I remember her saying what what kind of life you're going to have and I was like so affected by her reaction. The I stack tracked and kept secret which I'd been doing anyway pretty much by whole life and so I just went back to being lesbian for About the twentieth years so I came out again at the five is lesbian. I had my moments. I probably would have been a good lesbian if I wanted to be one. If I'd wanted to stay that way I mean you know like there's a certain amount of Kudos that comes with being a butch woman. There's definitely a market of attraction that people you know women find attractive and I was like well. Maybe I don't know it wasn't able to sort of engage with a as much maybe to have taken advantage of that but you had girlfriends yeah had girlfriends. Yeah so I may have been a good lesbian.

I'm we're glad that you can finally are you in disc to navigate around. This is why you wanted to switch to or not. There's so many things going on. This is very helpful. Thanks everybody nobody we did it and thanks for nothing game scoop we told you twice. Yeah well until somebody tweeted at me I remember see. There's a thing that happens is called game scoop and show Amnesia and everything we talk about on the show. I at least don't remember we just scout right after this. That's the thing with some off with the version of it. I get is people like tweet me some some funny quote or something that they like from the show and then I'm like what's that and they're like you said it my. I don't have any memory of that. What happens with that too is that it's usually something that I said when they say that to you and you're like I definitely remember saying that I'm like I said all right? Let's get into it. Let's get into it next. Gen Consoles cels their top of mind with everyone. Everyone's excited about him. I like him Your for them. Yeah you think they should happen. Has Several of them at home. How he doesn't they were action? Our friends over at Games Industry Biz ran a survey of eight thousand gamers aged eleven to sixty four across Germany Spain and France and Italy asking them what next Gen console feature is most important to you to the people that took the survey. And we've we rent service similar GM. But I thought this is interesting. It's a pretty good sample size. Eight thousand people in the in in Europe. What do you think is the most the most wanted next? Gen Console Feature Agra compatibility roller. It's not I think that was our whole the result when we were in that poll on our homepage also We Will Dan Stapleton random feature around how backward compatibility is basically the trend for next Gen. It's become the standard was subscription options service on there. That was not on there. It's gotta be no it's gotta be like power it was it was better graft who can forget better graphics there's the fullest hold on. No no I just think it's amazing that people could look at AAA Games today and be like insistent. I just can't can't we can't get here fast. No but you gotTA gotTa War. No but look. That's the kind of quote in like ten years gets brought backup like think about. Ps Three Games compared to now and like there's probably some from games give two thousand eleven. We like Video Games canton. Don't look at Asai said before era is why we need games to look better than this and I I mean they came. Looks Amazing still. There's handles on like a big part of it is like frame rate right right. So it's like maybe in level of detail and quality to your earlier point maybe we've picked out a little bit like the. PS three xbox one the big debates where like the relief relief finite amount of differentiation between graphical fidelity. So maybe that's just a carryover. Yeah well better. Graphics was far and away the most desired next Gen console feature feature in this survey the only other feature to get anywhere close to that level of consensus was shorter load times Eight K. Resolution was less important than motion motion controls backwards compatibility and ability to play physical games so they want better graphics but AK resolution they. Yeah uh-huh deprioritization. Just means you have to buy another expensive television. I don't even have a fourteen. TV At motion controls were important to forty nine percent of all survey gamers and fifty ninety seven percent of console gamers. That's weird really a new over that I thought so too must controllers like the playstation four controller that have slightly augmented motion controls. Charles like those are almost entirely abandoned. Now there's like an spiderman it had a little bit of that but like it's never it's never used anymore. It's really funny to go back and play like older like like when that was a newer thing and launch. PS Four Games. I think it's uncharted for where it's like. You shake the controller to throw the grenade and they have the They always added balance. Beams in every game. Amy Add balance. Meet Him. Yeah didn't need that. But you know you gotta have the controller valid on it Backwards compatibility what's important to forty eight percent of all surveyed gamers and fifty nine percent of the the console crowd and playing physical Games was important to forty seven percent. Surge surveyed gamers fifty eight percent of console. Gamers the situation for backwards compatibility where when when it was taken out of consoles a lot the reason ing was always like we have data and nobody uses it or it's actually it's only the parents correct career. It's a selling point for the parents. Oh they'll get to use all their old games. Okay I can justify the or for a kid to say that to the point that it is such a Trojan horse thing. I don't think a lot of people keep their collections. Enes and Dipak in they. Just don't because we're on Vega cops. I've talked about this on skip before but the backwards compatibility on xbox xbox live ecosystem is such an underrated. Did it's so incredible like those games the fact that you're not booting into some separate weird. Og xbox or xbox three sixty interface. It's like those games are just there and you can buy them and play them like you can buy symphony of the night on Xbox one it's like you're sx. I bought sx three. I just had a desire to play it ten dollars. It was installed and played. It was all beautiful like cool. My Hat's off to them for that. You can donate your former councils who need those anymore. Yeah I'd I just I just do it. A normal person does and they're just sitting under arrest office like this you can just bring them in and put them under your desk. Yeah that's my new under the bed. Yep to just hide it. They're just storage. Now Y- true I was just. I was stunned by how different. These poll results are from from what we would find if we surveyed the audience I think graphics is that it's been that that's been the Super Nintendo. It just sounds so funny to me more pretty better graphics wchs load times like are they really. That long like both Sony and Microsoft are talking about load times and demoing them and then it was. It pulled second here behind graphics. Yeah exactly bullets. It's because they've been talking about them. It's almost like a marketing trick. I I would assume but it. It's dependent on the game in terms of times. Yeah Control was pretty insane. I mean I play mostly I have the choice. I play most P. C.'s. So maybe I'm not I don't know how long. ps four times are for a typical game. These days The lowest priority features were virtual. You'll reality compatibility and hand-held motivational. Sorry Nintendo. Yeah it's cool that after you know I guess seventy years of area or so of video games existing. We're finally solving load time. It's been a while I like. We got through all that stuff though graphics will we're we're still tweaking. I understand that's an ongoing issue. We're almost done with graphics load to previous generations. But but we're GONNA fix ex- load times. That was just low on the list for a while. Low Times weren't a problem. At the beginning. It became a problem two decades. That's true except for like fifty four stuff like that but yeah pc gaming what about when you're waiting in line editor came to play a game time.

Pawpaw Fruit Facts

"Let's dig into today's topic. Paul can we start with you You heard my story about how I discovered. Papa's thanks to you How did you discover? Papa's well I stood. Discovered Papa's in the native of trees of Canada. I discovered them on a page. Not In reality. Unfortunately I grew up in a family that was in the produce business My both my grandfathers this were farmers Where we're in the Agra in the native you know in the native Place for Papa's grew or still grow but I had never tasted them mhm nor heard of them and it piqued my interest so much because we had always Prided ourselves on being the first to taste everything that came into the market and new member. One Re Pini Dini came in and went Avocados came into the market and when kiwifruit and star fruit and all. Those things first appeared here And this it was the kind of our native exotic that I had never experienced. So it was part of a schoolyard naturalization pro project and really part of more broadly of using native plants to restore habitat. And so there is there is that broader Value of these trees while of course because they are native They're co evolved with all the insects and diseases that That are here. so they're not susceptible to them and and they host Many important species as well so tell me something so you read about it in a book there. Was this naturalization project in your neighborhood or something. What did you guys do? You never heard about the train you go and you buy it and you plant. or how did that happen well. This was the early nineties so for me. The early days of the of the Internet and I did track someone down through through the interweb of that day. You know very very BA barebones in those days And found some of the Niagara and into we had just you know we were. We're lucky we had just moved into a new home. We had a front yard. That was kind of a had been lawn and of course we didn't want to have lawn anymore. We don't have any lawn and it's such a such a poor use of the small space that we had in in urban setting So we wanted to plant it with native trees stories and We also wanted to scare the view to our neighbor across the street and When I came home we came home? Not with two trees but with two sticks As my partner so kindly So kindly described them and so it took about ten years. Oh my gosh. So th the next ingredient is patients it is. It's really a slow food. Okay it's very slow so it took Tennessee. You plant these trees. Your partner is okay with it. Look like two little sticks What did they look like as they were growing up? As you're nurturing these two little sticks what are they looking. I think the first thing that I notice about them was just so how distinctive the leaves czar. They look like no other tree and I have had a number of people Just walked down the sidewalk and look at them and then the bravest among them go like what tree is that. I think I know all the trees but I've never seen something with such a long feather shaped leaf And you know my my friend. Who spent a lot of time in America around Cacao Trees Religious Jew really notes. How similar they are to cow as well in their structure so they are a very unique looking tree And the and then a when the blossoms came out the blossoms are also fascinating as well. They're very dark Maroon Maroon color I believe they're mimicking meet because they are pollinated by midges That are attracted blow flies. which are attracted to dead meat? So what do they smell like. Do they smell like dead meat. So if you don't smell like dead meat they are the the. They are a little acrid smelling rolling. They're they're certainly not fragrant like an apple blossom right okay so you plant this tree and you're hanging in there and you're waiting mm-hmm and you're waiting you're waiting did you at some point. Did you almost lose your enthusiasm for this. Great idea of planting palm tree. No I think we're there. There are many other things going on and I was very hopeful and I and it was just as I was reading more and more of the work that Lorraine Johnson was doing and other other great Authors were doing around native plants and I would start accumulating references to pop. Aw and when and the more I read about dumb and the and the more I read descriptions of of their flavor the more we just couldn't lose interest because I was just kind of salivating every year and then there is frustration because for a couple of years we got some blossoms but no fruit set and so actually getting pollination especially on isolated trees in in an area where there's really no native no no other surrounding trees that could cross pollinate with them. It took a long time so finally the day comes that you start to see fruit for me. Tell me about what year was that and what was going on for you. That was two thousand and four. I I was involved in agriculture. At that point I was working in the wine industry Saw Back and forth in Agra Lot and really felt that I was kind of telling the the the agricultural story in our urban setting and this was another part of that story And so as they foreign we got very excited. I why did you know the the small. The small mammals do like to climb up and down the trees and sometimes knocked them off before they're fully ripe so that was a little bit of a frustration. Especially when you're you know and we would count the fruits right at the end of his own fifteen this year you know. And then and then there's attrition through the whole season right and but when those first fruits did ripen and you could smell their ripe and you could feel they were right They became very highly price in our in our in jealously guarded. Oh Yeah Y.. Y within our household as well yes okay so in your household old guy. Your first ripe fruit. Is this actually the first time you taste papa. Your own fruit yes. I had never had that point. There were no I. I hadn't yet to see them at farmers markets Forbes wild foods does have some now and now there are some other farmers who are growing them in in a more more commercial quantities. But at that point not at all so what did you think I was just blown away. The the flavor is so mystifyingly defying Li exotic so tropical in its character The texture is so silky and smooth and as they get ripe they get this. Really really beautiful. Creme Brulee characters a bit of a roasted character to them that is just really satisfying and really enhance and attractive. And and then of course you want to multiply your pleasures by sharing them. So that's really what I started to do. Work through slow food and other organizations to you want to really share share the beauty of the of that

J.F.C. Fuller: Military Thinker

"August Grist nineteen sixteen the Western Front. In the first World War the opposing armies had dug into entrenched positions stretching five five hundred miles across France and Belgium from the mountains to the sea barbed wire and machine. Guns meant that it was all but impossible for either side side to advance the Noble Cavalry long the most celebrated force in the army utterly useless. It was a murderous stalemate stalemate but a few miles behind the allied lines. Hundreds of people both civilians and British and French army officers. That brought picnics. Emma waiting patiently for a demonstration of Agra marketable invention it was pleasantly warm day and a quiet quiet spot if you tuned out the artillery of the Psalm battlefield thundering away beyond the horizon then. Another noise began to cut across that distant rumbling the Chug of a powerful engine the relentless metallic clattering of Caterpillar tracks carrying twenty eight tons of cannon armour-plating to walking pace. Everyone was talking and chatting when slowly came into sight. The first I tank I ever saw not a monster but very graceful machine with beautiful lines lozenge shaped but with too clumsy looking wheels behind it. That's major J F C fuller. He's the central figure in our story. He's thirty seven a small roll man with a neatly trimmed moustache. His hairline is retreating over his crown and beginning to March down the back of his hand. He could pass for a Buckler in a costume. Assume drama but beneath the surface of J F C fuller is an inner radicalism. Not long ago he'd been friends with the notorious. Torius occultist Alister Crowley Crowley called himself. A wizard one newspaper called him. The wickedest man in the world cavorting with self proclaimed walks is not the typical social pastime of a British army officer. But as we'll see that isn't even the strangest first thing about the life and the fate of J F C Fuller Fuller sees instantly this new machine. The tank is the solution to the basic tactical problem of the war of how to cross MoD and trenches and barbed wire against Storm of bullets. Nothing else has worked not even the novel atrocity of poison gas. But the tank will do the job. Bob And J. F C fuller concede that with absolute clarity. The tank is the unknown x in the equation of victory. All that is necessary is to get the people to see the problem but getting other people to see the problem was well. Perhaps that was the problem problem.

Half of all children are subjected to violence each year, research finds

"One billion children or half the world's youngsters of victims of violence ranging from conflict and humanitarian crises to cyberbullying and recruitment by terrorist groups. That's according to you an expert Najat Mala Who Advocates for governments civil society and other stakeholders to put children at the heart of their policies? Ms g began her appointments as the UN Secretary General Special Representative on violence against children in July and recently presented her first report to the UN General Assembly. My Yakub asked about progress in the global effort to protect children. My first report really give brought picture about what's going on regarding you know ending violence against children today to have more than one hundred countries who are implementing pink National Strategy regarding child protection you have almost sixty countries who really have adopted legal framework banning all all forms of violence against children. You have more and more coalitions within many key actors including children's themself you have in many countries also more evidence based information but you have one billion of children. We still facing violence worldwide. It means health of children worldwide. This is too much and to add to this. Many countries are facing many many challenges challenges. You have humanitarian crisis. You'll have conflicts. You have social this. You have migration. You have an increasing number of refugees. You have love all this violence on line including cyber bullying child sexual exploitation line. You have also the enrollment of children in gangs. You have more more. And more armored violence that increasing in many countries and you have also currently all this increasing of criminal organization and terrorist organizations that recruit children and children. What is more important? They are even are not victims or witnesses they are facing seeing violence within Internet and violence becomes socially tolerated and it is why really when we think about ending violence again children by twenty thirty we need to do more and more faster and better and we need to stop having commitment and slogan but really to act and to assess what is going on on grassroots if we were to compare the situation and the Arab region to the rest of the world. Where do we lack behind? It's very difficult. Yeah because when we're speaking about Arabic region it's not any animal genius region. You'll have to take into account you have rich countries. You have the developing countries you have many any region currently who are facing or this increasing conflicts humanitarian disaster huge number of refugees and of Migrant Agra children were really fleeing from violence. You have also problem of social discrimination social disparities you have also the gender discrimination you have a processing harmful social norms. It's very difficult to rank. Violence is worldwide but what is important regarding things is the Arabic region. I was just in our men when we had wonderful congress on violence against children into Arabic region and many things going gun regarding legislation guiding national strategies regarding also communication and raising awareness for changing social knows bits. We need to do more and to translate a really in concrete. Acts is very important but in the meantime you need to put an end to all this conflicts just because it's amazing what is going on currently and regarding what's coming on currently Lebanon social protests. You'll have a lot. I think what's really important. Children and use Are expressing themselves and we need to see them not only as quincy but really as actors of positive change and to take into account realism. Commence to build on what you just said you mentioned conflict around the word and the children on the move. How do you tackle the subject to find a solution? It's you know child protection. Even my mandate is global. And Will Casey Mandate I can do my Lord but what is important is how we can build build links and we can have joint strategies joint action within all the other key stakeholders and in the same time working also with civil society. The organizations that it's very important not only at global level but also at look eleven working with a child led organization and initiative and also using using you know or the intergovernmental bodies that are located at regional level to make sure that children are really puts. I'd say half of all the policies because if really will not put children really at the heart of his political agenda and translated by concrete concrete action and accountability mechanism and working very closely with children and seeing them as actor of policies. We are not going to be successful successful. You have recently visited China where you participated in the war Internet forum in a time where we see cyber bullying and Dan sometimes this cyberbullying is leading to children. You work with governments to counter this S- coach. Yes I was in China and During the World Conference on Internet and I had to participate to session on child protection align and regarding what is going gun we have to never forbids that also Internet provide opportunities for children because they can learn it can express they can make their voice hurts and also can't show that it's possible because they are for me actors change but in the same time they are facing many challenges inches and really to deal with these challenges that would be sexual expedition online cyber bullying hate speech radically as many things. What is important? Yes we need to work and I work closely with government to make sure that the legislation consider this are as crimes and really make reporting on this crime Katori. This is very important is the same side. We need to empower children and makes them also aware and becoming kind of peer to peer protection because they are more more aware about all the language Internet language as adults and is the same type the most important part is ICT companies house. They can have a candle safety in designing protecting child's rights and protecting children texting their privacies. This is very important and and also working very closely with low enforcement agencies to make sure that all these criminals are held accountable. This is very important This year is very symbolic i. At marks the tenth anniversary of your office mandate the thirtieth anniversary of the Convention on the right of the child and the first phase of implementation of agenda. Twenty thirty. What do you call to ensure that children are not left behind since arriver? I I ju I. I didn't stop calling for making children off the agenda. I hope I am going to be listened within the same time what's important this is to ensure not only to having commitments. This is good but to make sure and too. Many children are really bad in political agenda and here also I work very very closely with all key stakeholders to have you know kind of information. What is going on? What are the emerging trends? What are things that are going one and what are good practices but for me? What is really more important east to also assess the bottlenecks and also what is important is to identify? And we start. Having having a mapping of these countries that are really doing their best. You have is a political commitment and they are acting to provides more visibility to govern is them to make sure that they are

Stocks slammed on slowdown fears

"We begin with breaking news stocks slammed as a major sell-off hits. Wall Street the S. and P. Five hundred posting its biggest two day drop since August August and the selling was widespread all eleven. SNP sectors finishing the day in the red so the question tonight is simple the time to get worried tim well the data seems nice to be getting worse and so we have some important data coming up tomorrow and on Fridays I assume services and we tend to want to believe that this is the more important number as opposed to manufacturing number which everybody Eddie spooked. This is a trade war. That seems to be manufacturing trade war to what extent we get that tomorrow it should be noted that last month's ISM services was they very bullish number which had the markets reverse a two day plunge just like the one we've had when people thought okay here we go but you also had. ADP which showed that the labor market ser- ser- it could be if you look at the kind of three month average on jobs on ADP were down about twenty five thousand over the twelve month but not much as changed yet in the labor market yeah carrying you said last night thank you were getting worried. You're more worried run relative basis. Are you even more worried today. I'm a I'm a little more worried today but I'm starting to see. There's a lot more fear in the market right right. There's a lot more things are starting to feel a little bit a little panicky not a super panic but you know one of the things. I watched really closely as the vix. We had a very big spike in the vix today. I'm actually I think now is not the time to buy volatility. I think it's too far too fast and if anything we have sort of the story the the EU tariff that just came out. If that's sort of that was some Tesla numbers we will get later if that's sort of starts a momentum down now. There's a big down open. I will probably be selling protection into that. I like to look at to buy things when they start to trade an integer some of which I own sadly that are trading and introduce down. I'm going to be looking for some of those to add technically. We were weak. We cut through the fifty cut through the day. I said at the other end of the show. I don't see us doing doing what we did last year. I mean it's too easy so I do think I don't think the worst is over but I think you're okay to dip a little bit on the buy side. You would buy this today. The other day about alter sold it a so so stock specific today thought about buying Roku was on the fence on it things that have been beaten up drastically that are due for a bounce. I think you're okay with so just think about this time. Last year. The was up almost ten percent pity around twenty nine. I'm fifty and no one thought we could go down twenty percent no matter a month and we did and and I don't think anything's too easy when we're talking about selloffs in the market especially when we have a situation where rates are so low and people think it really is the only place to be. They think that US equities is the only place to be relative to what's going on in Europe Asia that sort of thing. I just don't like hearing this trade stuff up moving around. I don't like it floating. I know we've been talking about trade as it relates to China and that is the most important thing that is the economy that's growing six plus percent and when they slow down it reverberates all all over the world but I don't like the fact that we know the data in Germany's been horrible. Okay is practically in a recession and that is the big economy over there so we start talking about this trade war or having the potential to go on multiple fronts. I say to myself you may get your headline that you're waiting for an China trade. PM is the global we're negative. They were the first ones that were negative. They were negative. Were over a year and now for the last two months. You're starting to see that turn so might be. Aus- chasing facing them down at this point. I don't know well I m days. That's terrible news. I mean being the last man standing when we certainly we have the resilience that we have in this economy. Look I mean we talk a lot about credit and people come on save credits. Okay you're not. GonNa see credit. Hold up if you start to really see the job market off because consumer credits going to trickle through but also the corporate credit side. We talked about this bounce. She's numbers by the way if you look at the the High Yield E. T. S. whether you're looking at the H. Y. J. H. Y. it's down two points over the last couple of days not great news so if you look at the two day moves though in a number of sectors including banks banks in two days have taken taken out almost that entire rally twin and China is and has gone down although the healtcare Stephen because the expectation on the low end is actually getting a little bit more. I I also think it's kind of interesting to go back and think about two thousand sixteen which is a very volatile year. There's a lot of stuff going on brexit caused a lot of volatility June July of two thousand and sixteen and into our election and I think we're starting to see just this week. We're seeing politics start to infuse themselves into our market so bit and you know I'm on the air. Today I heard well does that leg down because Bernie's in the hospital and that means that Warren might be the this is stuff that we're going to hear for the next year so it may start to have an impact earning star when there's whenever there's a void of something real fundamental to buy into the markets trade off of whatever you give and do we think that earnings are going to be decent for the third quarter. I mean given what we've had so far Micron Carnival Fedex clorox taking their guidance down today. Delta saying that their costs are higher. I don't know well. I thought Delta is actually a little bit overdone. Yeah I mean but on a day like today. It doesn't really matter things are GonNa get overdone and the pendulum swings very far. I'm interested to see what the banks tell us not so much what happened happened during this past quarter but what they're seeing not just for their own business which is really important obviously for what they they have a great insight into what is happening in the US economy so that we'll be really interesting. you know the autos kind of rolling over. Don't love that either right but I do totally agree with. Steve we need. That's the main something to me. The main piece of data when via stock is what are the fundamentals of the company not not Lauren or who's ahead or what you know and also would also look at. We start off the show. I'm saying we're where. Are we going to be the same way as it's time to buy time to sell last year we had everyone was raising rates or we were on the raising a a higher rate path. Now everyone is on a lower rate because needs are really bad. Here's the thing at a certain point is going to matter. I don't like it doesn't matter now. I don't like the technical setup. I think we're in week since around that three thousand level when we broke down from there my issue. Is that the Fed does not have enough AMMO Komo to fight the next recession unless he uses the balance sheet so once you use the balance sheet. That's a whole nother Pandora's box. That's the only thing we're talking about. Technicals that goes and we're talking about kind of where we are. In the market cycle. I also WanNa talk about positioning which we talk about all the time and ultimately think it's the most important thing and while we've talked about equity investors certainly could be considered underinvested in Agra. We look across retail and institutional. If you look in the data that I'm getting from my prime brokers as it relates to total gross capital at at the balance sheet the size of capital work in other words how much exposure is in the market. We're at ninety fifth percentile for hedge funds for long short hedge funds and other as they may be more net neutral and they you may not be net long in ways that they had in the past but they bigger balance sheet which is dangerous in other words at times of higher risk which whatever you WanNa say about where we are. We have so many more factors out there that could be things to be worried about and the fact that the Hedge Fund community is near what would be seen extreme levels in terms of overall Balaji. I don't like back going into the fourth so in other words if there's if there is a cell situation head for the exits than we see all that money I could actually see guys as things have to change into your and some of these guys might not even make it through this. They'RE GONNA have to be selling some of the crowded winners and you're actually going to see some of the weaker hands and some of the weaker stock to actually achieve catch a bit on short-covering but yeah. I just think you're supposed to simplify during a difficult period right now. You're not supposed to get more complicated and I think that there are guys that have become more complicated. Yeah I just again you know I. I don't think it helps market participants that the president just yelling at everybody all day today all day long that we're on every network you know that sort of thing and I just just think back to two thousand and nine when we were in the throes of just the worst sell off that we've had in a long time and we had a president who was pretty calm. Just you said that sort of thing and I think those are the sorts of things would really be helpful going forward and so I think this is something that you guys better get used to because this is going to happen here on out you on a daily basis as we get into the end of this year and we've had a president has been y'all. Everyone in the market went to all time highs. I think now right now anything Stephen Eighteen market timing is under the president. That's being gay and it went to all time highs under every other. I don't think that's your litmus test.
