Inconsistencies in Vaccine Administration Remain As More Americans Get Vaccinated

"Twenty eight point six percent of people in the us have received at least one covid nineteen shot and soon very soon almost all americans will be eligible for their doses but there are still inconsistencies between the states as white house correspondent marine. Groppy tells us it's still unclear why some states are acting faster than others so an increasing number of states are opening up vaccines to the general public which made me wonder why some states are doing that faster than others. I assumed that the states removing. I were those. That are farther along in the share of their residents vaccinated. But that's not necessarily the case Some are like alaska. Which was the first state to make. All adults eligible earlier this month but mississippi which was the second stay continues to rank near the bottom for for vaccination rates not just for all adults but also for senior citizens which is one of the most high priority populations because seniors are have a high risk of not just getting kobe but of serious implications if they do get it and the experts i talked. You said there are different reasons why some states are moving faster than other states. Some governors might be more confident in the increasing amount of vaccines that are coming. There are also demographic differences among states and some states may not be filling vaccination appointments as quickly as other states. That could be because it's harder to make an appointment or to get an appointment into state or it could also be that they're more vaccine hesitancy among their residents and if that that is happening then you wanna make sure to make as many people eligible as possible to get the vaccination numbers up.

Meet The 'Glacier Mice'

"So now. You told us that tim. Bartholomeusz was surprised that he came across the glacial moss balls but other researchers had encountered them before right yes. They're rare. I mean they don't grow in just any glacier that seems like conditions have to be just right but researchers have spotted them for decades and they've seen them in several places like in alaska. Iceland spelled barred south america while and you know people who see them are generally pretty fond of them. I mean in the nineteen fifties and icelandic researcher described them in the journal of glaciology and he called them. Yoke lamis or glacier mice. I love that glacier mice. Okay so what do we know about these little fuzz. Balls as you're going there's limited research but we do know they can be composed of different moss species so researchers think they form around you know like a little bit of rock or a clump of dust and they just grow up to be pretty big like six inches across or something. And here's the cool thing these moss balls move around and it turns out they move in a coordinated way almost like a herd. Okay that's amazing. Let's let's take the first part. Because when i think of moss i don't think of movement you know it's pretty static i know. But researchers have speculated in the past that they must be moving because otherwise the bottom of the moss ball would be dead. It wouldn't have living moss but if you pick one up off the glacier and you turn it over and look you can see. There's actually green living moss all around the ball moving around rolling in some way.

"We kind of let it calmed down. I guess it did whatever it was going to do. And then we went and started driving around town messing with our radios and didn't really think much about it after that but having seen that. That's what kind of makes me think it's more not my head. As far as the one in alaska goes well. Yeah so that. I mean at least wow. I would have been terrified. Been terrified how. How big do you think this thing was. When it was running towards us and the field it had a lot of scrub brush and the only time that i was really able to see it was when it was by the backfield by the back fence of the field. Is that the whole property is if you're standing at the gate it's a complete incline like going uphill the whole way up to a up to the back fence of the property so if you're sitting at the workshop you could look and see the back fence but something that's like covering ground. The scr. the brush was tall enough where you would be able to see me walking through the brush. I don't know if that makes sense. Okay well it sounds terrifying and it sounds like you guys were terrified. That's why you read it right away and you know man. It really sounds interesting. Comparing it to your alaskan experience because All right so people other people saw it as well this time around and so you know was the man. It's so hard because you were alaska and nobody saw it except for you and this time a a bunch of people saw it so do you think maybe it could be two different things that you experienced that just ironically or similar. Well as that. I mean that's kind of what. I'm leaning towards now Looking at a lot of the stuff that's happened. I tried but again the past. I've tried connecting all of this stuff. And i don't a lot of it. I don't think there's any connection. I think it's just isolated incidents. But i think i'm more sensitive to things than other people so i might. I don't know if it's more open to it. Maybe pay more attention to the thing. These things but i believe more towards that. I'm more open to seeing it and that's why see things in different places not necessarily that these things are connected so okay so you're more open to seeing these things. I just don't understand why one group of people see it and the other don't you know it's just. It's just very interesting very very interesting. I don't wanna dwell on this though. We have more stuff to get to. And i can just something like this. It doesn't fit our narrative so when we see our brain filters it out so like you could see something right there in front of you. It's like when you're looking for your car keys. You look all over the house head but you end up finding a spot that you've looked at fifteen times just for whatever reason you didn't see it. Yeah so i. I'm trying to follow your your your thought. There was that So you're saying that it's just like more of a Situational kind of thing as to whether people are not more i. I lean more to more along the lines of whether you're whether you're able to accept it. Psychologically or not okay because i think some of this stuff if some people if they were to acknowledge that some of this real i think it might break their psyche. Yeah they're really very narrow minded. They're very focused on. This is the way this world works. There's no chance that anything outside of this is is even possible but like with what with what the scientists are looking at now with the possibilities of parallel dimensions. Are you know. They're saying there are Parallel dimensions i think is where they're at right now but they're trying to figure out ways to look into five years ago. If you said that you'd be a crackpot. Yeah so but. I think that's kind of what it is is if it's outside of what the what you think is normal. A lot of people are not able to accept it. Is your brain operates on a delay as minimal as of a delays. It is there still a delay and your brain fills in gaps when you blink or when you look like when you look from one spot to another really fast. Your brain fills in the gaps with what it thinks should be there so i feel like if you see something. That's not supposed to be there if you're not focused on it you're not going to see like your brain just won't accept that it's there that that doesn't make sense because i know there's a lot of psychological things that go into this that You know our our precursor to the experience. I mean so it really depends on you. Know what the person how the person is set up in this situation as to what they experience Right so you and your wife and your oldest son lived in a house that had some pretty bizarre experiences. You want to go into that. So the house that you're talking about we live there..

Talk to people up there has been fishing for a long time and they're definitely able to tell you that we just don't see those really large old salmon used to see Christa a post doctoral fellow at the University of Alaska Fairbanks oaken colleagues at the University of California Santa Cruz, and elsewhere analyzed records of fish size. Going back to the nineteen fifties they included data on some twelve point, five, million, salmon, each of which had. To be measured by someone from the Alaska Department of fish and game, and there's no question about it. Salmon have shrunk sockeye salmon today are two point one percent shorter than their ancestors chum salmon are two point four percent shorter and Coho or three point three percent shorter Chinook or king salmon showed the greatest declines at eight percent. That's an average difference of more than two inches in length. The study is in the journal Nature Communications. The researchers haven't nailed down the exact reasons behind this trend, but they're analysis suggests that climate change and competition with wild and hatchery raised salmon, both play a role. They also discovered that much of the change in body size is due to fish returning from the ocean at a younger age now than in the past. Oak, says fish could be returning earlier because they're reaching maturity faster for some reason or because the ocean has become a riskier place for older salmon to survive what could be happening is the That otherwise would have returned large old. Just making. Whatever the cause this size shift has massive ramifications for people and the Environment Oak and her team calculated that catching smaller fish may have already slashed the value of Alaska's Commercial Salmon Fisheries by twenty one percent. It's also likely reduced the food available to subsistence fishers, many of whom reliance stores of salmon to get them through the long harsh winter by as much as twenty six percent. On the ecological side, the researchers estimated that smaller fish sixteen percent fewer eggs, which could depress salmon populations in the future and the Salmon Bring Twenty eight percent fewer nutrients into the watersheds were they spun according to the study after they breed and die kirk actually fertilize. Freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems with these marine derived nutrients that are really important and that used by all kinds of animals like bears and songbirds even taking up into trees with no single factor to blame for shrinking salmon there's no fix says, but there are still plenty of fish in the sea they're just smaller than they used to be.

"alaska" Discussed on The Book Review

"John Holum joins us now. He's a writer at large for the New York Times magazine and his new book is called. This is chance the shaking of an all American city of voice that held it together. John thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having me so this book. This is chance is a book about a seismic event like our current pandemic except that it was an actual seismic event. Tell us about the earthquake that hit Alaska on March twenty seventh nineteen sixty four. It was Good Friday evening and this was the largest quake that's ever been recorded in. North America is still the second largest one in the world I think even more disturbingly and almost with more experience it lasted for four and a half minutes so is incredibly destructive quake but it was also there. Was this kind of psychic disorientation. That came along with it. Especially in the city of Anchorage which was really Alaska's biggest city by far at that time of just seeing this community that people were still very much in the process of building and inventing just kind of being turned literally upside down in some spots. Was the epicenter in Anchorage proper? No the was. It was close anchorage. It was just east of Anchorage under the sea and so there were a lot of communities that were affected around Alaska. I chose to focus the book on Anchorage because you know like I said it was really a place that was just beginning to get on. Its feet that sort of represented the promise of what Alaska could be felt great pride and itself but also real insecurity. Quake came in a very precarious moment for the community. When it was really just starting to feel like it had something to offer the rest of America and to be struck like this in such a seemingly random and very cruel way I think really affected the self image of the community. I mean Alaska is still kind of a mystery to many of US lower continental Americans. What was it like at the time? The Greater Anchorage area was. It was the city of one hundred thousand people in nineteen sixty four which is almost half of the state's population and really the only community that outside probably would have deigned to even call a city and it had a fourteen storey hotel but that was by far the biggest building. It had kind of an a new upscale neighborhood of kind of modernist homes it had JC PENNEY BUILDING. Which was a really really big deal that some big national American retailer would come build an Alaska and so again it was just really kind of finding its way you know straining to make itself a real place when this earthquake happened and it was it was feeling very insecure about its future because it didn't quite know that after this boom of statehood that it had found any way to sustain itself. It was still this feeling that this place that they were building this arm of society. They decided to build way up. In the corner of the world might be an experiment that just might not work out and then the ground literally shakes underneath them getting at those very fragile new foundations. I mean you. You chose in your book to focus really on the impact that the quake had on the people of Alaska. Why did you decide to approach the story? In that way. The way that I came into the story was through the story of this radio broadcaster. Genie chance who is sort of a part time radio reporter and working mother in Anchorage and who by a quirk of luck but also her own persistence? Wind up being this voice on the air and the three days after the quake that was really able to help the city co here in in a very disorienting dislocating moment bypassing information over the air passing personal messages from people looking for their family members. And once you find a like that. Who's really this node for? People coming together after an event like this. You start to see how all these individual stories of the earthquake. All of these people who are tossed around separately were really kind of joined in a shared experience. You use the Thornton Wilder. Play our town as a kind of framework. Can you explain how you did not why you made that decision? A big threat of the story. Is this Community Theater Group in Anchorage she was doing? Our town was interrupted by the quake that weekend. Think I'd probably read the play in in high school and and you know not proud to admit it but just you know didn't really take it seriously. I just started. Had this impression of it as this hokey simplistic ed piece of Americana. And when I started reading the play again I realized that in some ways it's it's themes are the themes of the story of earthquake to this idea that you know we don't recognize the preciousness or the fragility of our daily lives until we're thrown outside of it till we get some other perspective on it and the other weird thing that happened was is that you know there's this character in the play the stage manager who is standing on stage with the characters and telling you basically how they all die. The future and I realized that because I was spending so much time. Trying to recount the story of these three days but I was doing it from more than half a century later. I had that same kind of omniscience about these characters and it was very painful to watch people in the course of these three days struggling with these issues of life and death knowing that you know in one case month later this fellow would die in a plane crash or this guy was going to have a stroke and you know he was expecting to retire but he but he'd be dead six weeks later more and more. The book became kind of mimicking the structure and the way that our town is narrated which I think took it to some kind of unconventional places. But it really did seem like the way that this story should be told and you the author then become the stage manager. Yeah in a way. It's not you know we don't walk around and daily life knowing the future right but in a weird way this project put me in that position and the stage manager was really the only other person that I'd seen have that same experience. So yeah you know for the most part the book is this sort of intimate retailing about people in the in the real time of those three days after the quake but I do come in in the middle of the book as as a character. Who's just in a in a basement with all of genie? Chances Forty some odd boxes of her life just digging through trying to piece together that that map of her life. Let's talk about Jeannie chance for a moment. One of the people in your book describes chance as the whole women's movement in a nutshell how so well in nineteen sixty four she was really trapped in this predicament of being a woman in broadcasting having real talent and real guts as a reporter and just being mismatched with her with her environment. I mean this was you know. Nine hundred sixty four when the feminine Mystique came out it was. It was a time when you know people in Anchorage. We're not talking about feminism. Right gene was also in a in a very abusive marriage at that time. And what you see is after the quake I think because the quake was a moment where she really was called to take on a level of responsibility society hadn't really trusted her with before and she rose to that occasion she seemed to really have a new understanding of what she was capable of and made some real changes in your life including leaving her husband. She ended up running for and winning a seat in the state legislature where she became this kind of icon of the women's movement as she was described to me by some younger women who really looked up to her passing a lot of progressive legislation and kind of not not taken any gruff from the older conservative men that she was surrounded with. What kind of role did she serve for? The people of Alaska at the radio station K. And before the quake she was just this report around town and her voice was part of the fabric of the city and and so when she came on the air after the quake was was it was really comforting for people to hear a familiar voice. Just even explaining what had happened. You know we just. We just had an earthquake. And here's the buildings that crumbled and here's the streets that you shouldn't be driving on as a woman who is listening to that night put it to me. You know it's a situation where you just literally don't know what happens when people thought it was a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. And so when you're that confused and when you're feeling that isolated from the rest of your community and you don't know what other damage is out there. Anything that you are told is reassuring. This woman said you know information. Itself is a form of comfort in the situation. What are the parallels that you see between that moment in Alaska nine hundred sixty four and our current moment today if anything you what? What the book is about is is that there is a kind of volatility to our lives that we block out on a day-to-day basis. And we don't imagine ourselves as living in this in this world that is so fragile constructed and that and that can change instantaneously in ways that we can't imagine and when I was writing the book that seemed like an idea that would have some resonance you know be with climate change disasters or or just the pace at which our culture seems to be changing and now I think it's undeniable right. It's it's such an obvious truth that I probably didn't have to spend as much time explaining it in production now and I also think that what you're seeing now is also what you saw in the book. Is that some of the book deals with these sociologists who came to Alaska right after the quake like the day after to study how. The community was responding with the expectation. That things would be falling apart and people would be descending into chaos and violence and they found pretty quickly that people were very resourceful and level headed and and we're driven to work together to solve their problems and keep each other safe and I think for the most part. We're seeing that right now as well. Are there particular stories in the book of people in the aftermath? I mean there were fifty two aftershocks. So it wasn't like this kind of came and ended in four minutes. It was an ongoing experience. Perhaps not as extended as today but of disruption and total dislocation their stories that emerged from your research that you think of today as we are suffering from similar feelings of disruption and isolation the foundation sort of literally disappearing beneath our feet. I think it comes back to Jeannie. You know. I think it comes to the idea that even though you know much like today where we're all sort of sealed in our own homes and trying to trying to isolate the earthquake presented kind of forced isolation for people that that you know as one guy. Put it he. He had just been tossed around during the earthquake and found himself at the bottom of a big hole and and said that when he when he crawled the holy looked around and didn't recognize as neighborhood and he said you know you you think. Maybe you're the last man and I think that there was something that that genie and the other broadcasters to working after the quake that they were able to do with their voices just to suggest that. If you're hearing me you know that I'm here and you know that other people are listening to. I'm on the radio and that you could feel these kinds of connections even though you were sealed off from everyone else and even though anchorage was sealed off from the rest of the world that there was still a way to create that feeling of collaboration and that we can communicate we can pass information back and forth and.
