"W envoy sees Amy Pearl is an update on what these urban rodents have been up to. During the lock down. Dr Bobby Corrigan is an urban rodent ologists and at the height of the pandemic, he kept hearing from friends. First came the emails. You wouldn't believe what's going on outside my my condominium. It's kind of crazy. I hear screaming rats, then the calls. I'm watching rats. I never seen him play in the park before they're wrestling and playing. It looks like they're happy. I said, Trust me. They're not playing. Somebody is going to be killed shortly and eaten. Corrigan is a consultant who's worked on rat management. What cities all over the country, including here in New York City. And for him and other scientists who study rats. This kind of behavior is nothing new. Any mammal. If you take the food away, you're gonna have a normal behavior show up really quick. Jason Munchie South teachers evolutionary biology to freshman at Fordham University and Munchie South says one fact about rats is key to understanding their behavior. They're homebodies. Urban ref actually use a very small area around where they were born throughout their lifetime, And they live right by their food supply, which, here in New York City is an all you can eat garbage buffet. Think about a block with a lot of restaurants. There would have been trash on the street nearly every night. It would have been basically predictable, so predictable that Bobby Corrigan says Rats even keep track of our schedule. They absolutely no. When garbage Day is for their local Connie until the pandemic it and the regular supply of garbage that rat's rely on for food and certain neighborhoods slowed to a trickle almost overnight. Jason Munchie south. It's really they're running out of food in there. When I called the Department of Health, they said the number of 311 calls about rats drop significantly this March, April and may compared to last year. That's probably because people weren't out and about to call in sightings. Or maybe it's because the rats are laying low. Some of them might have on ly dropped down to the sewer, a lot of food floats by in those stores. A lot of people slash things down a toilet, smelly fish pieces, importance of vegetables. I asked Jason Munchie south if the lock down with the lack of food and the fighting. Could have caused an overall drop in the rat population. You know, it has on how long this goes on, but I think it's already gone long enough that there may have been a decrease. Your raft can respond very quickly to supplies, So if there's less food, they're not going to reproduce is much By the same logic as restaurants open up again, and the amount of garbage in certain neighborhoods increases the rats. Numbers will ramp up. They've evolved to basically turns food into babies very rapidly. So just station is about three weeks when the rest of born it's only another 5 to 6 weeks before those rats were born, become sexually mature. A single female latitude in this condition could have 45 letters a year. So if rats can have 12 pups in a litter, and up to five letters a year than one rat couple can have 60 babies a year, and each of those babies become sexually mature after only about six weeks and could start having babies of their own. I guess like a lot of lines, I don't predict that this lock down is goingto result in any kind of increase in the population for any A long period of time, but it might be the time to focus on rack control. Should we capitalize on this time to put out Bates and traps and to clean up his best is we can and you know, hopefully the lesson we've learned in part from this pandemic. Is that we need to be cleaner. The rats are going to take advantage of sloppiness wherever it occurs. Park subways at least residents, houses, hotels, hospitals. That's like, show us the slobs, and we will show you where we're going to set up shop. If you think being in the middle of a pandemic caused by a virus that jump from animals to humans is enough to motivate individuals to tackle the rat problem. Bobby Corrigan has a question for you. When you take the trash out, ask yourself. Do I do my trash in a way that a rat cannot get to it period? Yes, You know, it's a simple question for W Y C. I'm Amy Pearl. Support.

"Social distancing guidelines for their dogs and cats after a small number of animals were reportedly infected with code nineteen WNYC's Amy pearl has more from a veteran dog Walker in Brooklyn the new CDC guidelines for animal social distancing world news to Linda sat occur I heard that a while ago he said you should social distance your dog so I am I am I am of course I just kind of raised an eyebrow and then I started to think about the park this talking about Brooklyn's Prospect Park she's a familiar figure there you can see here all the time with their close cropped silver hair she's got a spider web of leashes rang out from our waste attached about half a dozen really well behaved dogs I've been a dog Walker for nineteen years it's a very interesting time is so you know people with social animals a lot like the dogs you can see that and prospect park where dogs are allowed off leash before nine AM they fetch the ball go swimming whatever they want running and playing Linda says she's already seen a few dog owners trying to follow the CDC guidelines and keep their animals six feet apart I did a couple of people concerned Logan flying off to the side and goes you know when you got a little too you can just they moved docks well the dogs you can't be hyper vigilant with your dog off leash their dogs the dogs if you bring a dog to the park and they're off leash can you get what you get the new CDC guidelines are supposed to protect pets from being infected with covert nineteen just by having them follow the same social distancing worlds that human family members are supposed to follow so just like you wouldn't let a stranger come up and talk to your husband share the CDC suggests not to let your pets interact with people from outside the household I still want harness on the dog and if they don't at the door now once upon a time it would might have meant something a little different but now it might mean you know I don't want you spreading my digital phone like most gig workers Linda's dog walking businesses taken ahead before I got off the phone with her I have one last question how does she keep so many dogs so well behaved at the same time okay carabiner and lots of treats in my pocket in the pearl WNYC for this is morning edition from NPR news I'm Rachel Martin and I'm Steve Inskeep if it weren't for the pandemic the NBA playoffs would have just started baseball would be in full swing and NASCAR's geico five hundred would have just crowned a new champion but none of those things have happened so what do you talk about when it's your job to talk about sports here's commentator Mike pesca downstream from every one pitch baseball and every uns wish jumpshot are normally hearty band of critics clowns in town criers the sports radio talk show hosts there are no sports but there are still radio stations that call themselves sports talk a situation that is driven some to the breaking point a few days ago an exasperated Dan Levitas but his ESPN radio co hosts know that their home studio set ups were in providing the seamless broadcasting experience he was hoping for trying to do the show in the modern age with no support and doing it with show that's what mode of communication but sports talk radio has pivoted not completely but profoundly to corona virus Paul Finebaum the dean of Southeastern Conference football sports Yonkers has mentioned a symptomatic carriers and serology as much as he's mentioned strong safeties these last few weeks New York City WFAN's Mike francesa is holding local and national officials to account as you once would to a flailing general manager who blew a draft pick we don't have a testing program that we all know what but we don't want to own up to what we cannot do it because you know what if the president ever owned up to it he would get slaughtered I knows that because that's the way the plan is game right now in the world of podcasts some sports talkers have gone entirely coronavirus Nate Duncan and Ben Taylor are both NBA podcasters who look at the lead from a more cerebral statistics driven perspective they haven't halted their respective hoops podcasts but they've added another one called covert Daily News all topics true shooting percentage new infection rate Taylor says communicating sometimes arcane statistics to an audience that is eager invested but not necessarily expert is exactly what's needed in the pandemic years and years of vetting ideas and having conversations and getting different points of feedback sort of shaping the way you present something in sports that's easy for people to digest I think that translates really well into a real time hectic chaotic potentially politically charged situation that's obviously one reason sports talking coronavirus talker good match the hosts are good communicators statistics play a key role in explaining what's going on and judgments sometimes harsh ones about leadership our sports talk host stock in trade so when Mike francesa offers up an opinion like this about an elected official you're always trying to Dodge the blame is always trying to blame someone else for the lease right now we need someone to leave that's a familiar frame to most sports fans it's easy for them to apply it to politicians in a crisis this gets the biggest reason why sports talk fits with corona virus analysis the audience only political junkies who may have an unshakeable belief in their teams the premise eight fans of sports teams must ultimately acknowledge that victory goes in one column and a defeat in another of course the losses during a pandemic.
