White House moves up vaccine supply timeline, says U.S. will have enough for every adult by end of May
"Good news this week in the race to end this pandemic, this country will have enough vaccine supply of state again for every adult in America. By the end of May. By the end of May. That's progress. Important progress. This comes as the governors of Texas and Mississippi have lifted all pandemic restrictions in their states and new variants of the Corona virus are popping up around the world and in the U. S. There's a lot to talk about that we're setting aside the next hour to answer your questions about the vaccination effort. Joining me now is Dr Lena when she's a visiting professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health. She's also an ER physician and the former Baltimore City health commissioner. Dr Wen. It's always great to have you To speak with you. Also with us Angela Rasmussen. She's a virologist, and she's also an affiliate at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health, Science and Security. Angela Welcome back. Thanks for having me back then a doctor win enough vaccine for every adult in America by the end of May. That's an aggressive timeline. Do you think we can get there? Well, I think we should break this down into three categories. In terms of where are the barriers to vaccination to having people actually getting the vaccine and their arms. The first barrier is that of supply. The second is that of distribution. The third. Is that a vaccine hesitant or acceptance of the vaccine. What President Biden announced is that by the end of name, we're going to solve the supply issue. That is we'll have enough supplies. You were saying for every adult American to have the vaccine. That doesn't mean that by the end of May, everyone is going to be able to get the vaccine because then once we get the supply, we need to move into addressing these other issues of administration and also of addressing hesitancy. So do I think that will get the supply? I certainly hope so. And so far, President Biden has been very good about not over promising. So I expect that this is going to be the case, which is fantastic, because supply right now is the limiting factor. Um I do think that a lot more work lies ahead of us in terms of actually getting that last mile logistics of getting the vaccines into arms and then also overcoming vaccine hesitancy. Available. Vaccines do not equal shots in arms. As you say, Doctor win, and the previous timeline was to have every American adult vaccinated by the end of July. Angela's we're seeing more variants. Developed. How urgent is it that we really ramp up vaccination? Well, it's very urgent on So given that people will be out there moving around more, the variants are becoming more and more prevalent. It's really, really crucial that we get vaccines into arms as quickly as possible. One thing people should really keep in mind and echoing what Dr Wen just said. Is that vaccines don't save lives. Vaccination saves lives, So we really, really need to buckle down and focus on making sure that we can get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. Well, we got this

Baltimore students grapple with distance learning
"Like other districts around the country, the city of Baltimore is weighing whether and how to return to school in person right now, most public school students here are attending classes virtually half of those. Come from low income families, and about fifteen percent have disabilities which add to the challenge of teaching and engaging students. Remotely Sonia Elisa's is the CEO of city public schools. I asked her how the district was fixed for technology going into the pandemic we have ratio of about one device for every four students what has rapidly changed. Over the past few months is we have. Purchased fifty five thousand devices so that we hand distribute those we've distributed probably close to forty, five to forty, eight of those. The other piece that's changed is we have far more technology in use with far more adult trained than we ever had prior to the pandemic more than half of Baltimore City public school students come from low income households. How has that added to the challenge given the the huge digital divide we have in our country you know we had probably close to twenty thousand families in Baltimore City that did not have. To broadband a lot of what we've also had to do frankly is is work with others in the community to leverage relationships and partnerships to make sure that the majority of our families would receive broadband. So everything from. Negotiating and frankly paying for some of the Internet access, we have about fifteen thousand hotspots that we have had to give out. But even when kids have the devices and the Internet connection at home, there are challenges I'm sure you saw the New Yorker Propublica story by Alec mcgillis profiling a child who was constantly searching for the right link to get into class because it was always changing and his access was. Available How's the district making sure kids like that don't fall through the cracks, his piece captured what happens after the ground level challenges of devices and Internet access or even addressed, and we've had parents through no fault of their own who even win they're calling our central lines for assistance aren't sure where the space bar is or in the case of the student that Alec profiled. If you don't know how to switch from one platform to another can be a real obstacle. It's one of the reasons why we needed to add more support through our hotline. Because it you know it takes longer if there's something new, we're really seeing what happens when we allow whole segments of our community to not have access to really what is an essential in twenty in the twenty first century. Do. You feel too much is being asked of schools to close that gap given the a lot of the reasons behind the digital divide our societal. So I think that that happens a great deal within public schools in our country and just the way that we approach and I've said this on a variety of cage of occasions. The way we approach policy and supports for families in this country is often very silo D- it's truncated in one area and it doesn't connect in another and so families are left really navigating the landscape on their own when really those of us. In. Service should be the ones navigating. We knew that the obstacles we faced in the spring, we're not going to be a sufficient enough excuse nor should it be for young people learning and so you do what you need to do. But that being said I do think it is a moment for reflection and pause that we are asking schools to be centers of feeding for families, centers of technology for families it really should. Very frankly, quite quite obviously a surface larger questions about what our family support policy is as a country overall with all the devices, you've had to purchase the internet connectivity. You've had to buy the training, how to do how much does all this cost. What we found was about a twenty one, million dollar gap between the resources we were able to garner from not just government, but our own repurposing of resources as well as. Some donations from the philanthropic community and in the case of Baltimore everyday citizens who donated everything from either full device or whatever financial contribution they wanted to make to the fund are really helped. Begin to bridge that that that divide however, we still found ourselves with about a twenty one, million dollar difference, which is why we began taking the financial. Measures that we did because what we knew was that between technology between our protective equipment cleaning supplies being able to make sure that families we heard loud and clear from our families that they wanted. Evidence that, we were going to be able to keep their students safe in any discussion about returning to school and even in the virtual environment. We knew that for that to be viable we would need to continue to help make sure that Internet was Availa ball and that again we were closing the divide on the devices.

Maryland trying to crack down on ransomware
"Story comes from Delmarva now, which is a publication that covers the Maryland Delaware Virginia area, and this is about the legislators who are introducing a ransomware bill that's going to tighten down the rules when it comes to ransomware UH, some penalties just sort of try to bring this into focus. This was written by Wesley Brown from Capitol News. Service. So we've got some. Maryland legislators, Senator Susan Lee at the Democrat from Montgomery, county sponsored the bill and it sounds to me like what they're doing here is just trying to to put the word out to criminals that even just possession of ransomware would be a crime in the state of Maryland. So this would be a radical change in the law around ransomware and Maryland the way the current statute works is only illegal actually used ransomware. This statute if enacted would criminalize the simple possession of ransomware in less the person possessed it for research purposes. So if you're in an academic setting and you were trying to study different types of ransomware that would not be violation of the statute. But as we do in other areas, the law, oftentimes, we criminalize the possession of something because the threat of the person will use. Whatever that thing is is particularly dangerous. That's why we prohibit in many instances possession of certain types of firearms even if a person does not use the firearm so we're criminalizing somebody for simply possessing what can be very dangerous in Maryland has experienced obviously in dealing with dangerous ransomware right most famously Baltimore City was the victim of a ransomware attack back in May of last year crippled city systems for several months took me awhile to get my water bills. Is Not Fun to get a bill three months later for a per three, hundred dollars is obviously this is a very serious problem and the key with this piece of legislation and I. Think this is something that Senator Lee would agree to is it's a deterrent you want to make it as undesirable as possible for people who are even considering possessing ransomware to realize that their actions would violate this law and they would be subject to pretty significant penalties. I. Think the statute calls for something like a ten thousand dollar fine or five years in prison. As a maximum penalty So it's a misdemeanor, but it's a it's a serious misdemeanor. Yeah. So we are creating this deterrent effect a couple of things noteworthy here one just a shout to one of your colleagues and certainly friend of the the cyber wire, Marcus Rajshekar he testified on this bill he sure did yet. He is a friend of the show also a fellow employees at the Center for Health and Homeland Security Marcus testified on this last year the bill was not enacted in the two thousand nineteen legislative session is all marcus fall just giving marcus. Our back here in two thousand twenty, they have made some changes to the bill to make it more palatable and from what I heard Marcus. The hearing went very well, and there seems to be broad increasing support for this type of legislation largely because. Not, only Baltimore City, but also the smaller city of Salisbury Maryland also suffered a ransomware attack. So there's just more of an awareness for how much of a dangerous to our localities, and this is a proactive measure for there to be a deterrent nothing worth noting on it. Now, if you were going to mention this is that a couple of other states and this is what Marcus mentioned this testimony Michigan and Wyoming have experimented with this approach the approaches. So new that we don't actually have any quantitative research on whether this is an effective deterrent to cyberattacks that remains to be seen. We'll let me play devil's advocate on that a Maryland. Law. Would affect citizens of Maryland. Right do we think that the people who attacked the city of Baltimore were Marylanders I don't probably not what I'm getting at is how much of this ransomware is even coming from within the United States so I agree with your devil's advocate take That's what lawyers do play devil's advocate. A couple of things though that sort of principle is applicable to a lot of different state laws. Okay. You could say white passed a state law in anything because somebody from Virginia could come in and you know do this illegal behavior and then would go beyond our jurisdiction. We we wouldn't be able to catch them. Okay. So it's still a deterrent factor just because the state of Maryland is making a statement, this type of behavior. Is Criminal in nature So sometimes I just simply stating. that. The possession of something is criminal. itself acts as a deterrent that ne'er do well who's thinking about their bank account is almost empty and weighing their options and saying you know I have some computer skills maybe all just spray out ransomware here they may see this and think twice absolutely. Yeah I mean it it's the deterrent effect I think is something that we use for all criminal statutes. In instances where it's the perpetrators are beyond our jurisdiction I think the state of Maryland is just doing what it's what it can in the absence of federal law that criminalizes ransomware and the absence of some sort of you know international law. We can only control what happens within our own borders, and so this is this is a start

Going to make a statement that I asked you a question. I'll hang up to hear your your answer. I feel like we're being conditioned. You know when Hillary wanders out of the closet makes a statement like that, And then she backed up by somebody else. Down the next day. I feel like they're setting us up for the election in November. My real concern is what are we going to make sure that this election does represent the American people those after actor and accounting, So that's my questions. I appreciate your time this morning, according hearing your answer. Francis. Thanks. Appreciate it. Sure. Look, I'm very, very worried about this fall's election, especially if these ballot by mail schemes. Ah, you know, continue. We looked we saw in Maryland here was horrendous. I mean, you know you you can't call the Democratic primary. For mayor in Baltimore City for a week takes a week accounts tens of 10 thousands tens of thousands of ballots. This's ridiculous. I think the governor's absolutely right. We should conduct normal election with as we always have. Absolutely ballot for any for any reason, but nationally, this's a great concern to me. We know that Patterson, for instance, 20% of the ballots, or 19% of the ballots were disqualified. Now you've got it. You've got to ask yourself now. What was going on up there? That was in a Democrat primary in there municipal election. We should look into it. You know if the Democrats are really interested in Free and fair elections. They would beholding enquiries into what in the world went on in Patterson, New Jersey, when 19% of the male and ballots were disqualified. You know, in an election where we think it's going to be decided by a few percentage points, the idea that you can disqualify that many ballots. Actually, you want to talk about the voter. No voter. Ah, discouragement that that's how that's how you win and lose elections. Of course, all you have to do is disqualify in some jurisdictions two or 3% not 19%. And you changed the result completely. Absolutely. There's no question about it on, but I think that's the plan. To be honest with you. We saw ballot harvesting in California. Change the outcomes in four or five congressional races. Last time we had amendment in committee yesterday, one of one of our members offered that basically just say, Look, you can't have a foreign national collecting ballots. The ballots harvester and the Democrats didn't even support that. And murders. Yesterday we did the story on a cat receiving a mail in ballots. So who else is getting mail in ballots and who's filling them out? By the way, isn't it was a deceased cat that have been dead for 18 years. And when the woman received the application for voting registration for her cat, who she'd had cremated, she won a camera. Held up the held up What remains of the cat says Here's the Cat right here, he said. It makes me wonder. You know who else is being registered about dogs, as she said it with a sense of horror and her face. Apparently, she's not a dog person. Yeah, These are very, very worrisome. That's a very serious subject with this is the integrity of a presidential election. And I fully believe that there are Democrats who who, in general believed that the end justifies the means and they will do everything they can to make sure that their candidate wins this November by hook or by crook. And here's a CZ always. Thank you so very much for spending some time with us. We truly do appreciate it. Thanks for sending your visit by the additional half hour to accommodate us. Appreciate it. Thank you. Eddie.

And I never I never put these words into their mouth. My children actually approached me and said that we are scared to go back to that school. Could do we have to go, and I'm a parent. I love my children. And with them saying that in the local in their faces. I can't send them back there. This is an elementary school. Some of the older kids at the elementary school. Took this six year old kid and toss them out the window of a moving bus. That child is alive by the grace of God. And in the skill of the EMT and physicians kid was unconscious for more than a day. The horror that parent went through. That amount of time. Sitting with his child ordering whether or not go. Why Lord of the flies? Lord of the flies the law of the jungle survival of the fittest. This is element -tory school. My God in heaven. What are we come to? I saw that last night sought again this morning. I'll link to it. So so you guys can find on the WBF Facebook page and I'll link to the page so you can find just a few minutes to get the thing posted this poor child. Six years old. Couple of the older kids who have been bullying him threw him out the window. Now, if there was a camera, and I believe that there was on the bus. There may be some indication as to who these children are who attempted to murder this six year old boy. Is it a fair question to ask? Should they be tried as adults? I think it's a fair question. I don't think they should be, but they should be removed from that educational situation because this is not the last six year old board the decide to bully and do physical harm to if not of the element through school than whatever middle school. They go to next and whatever high school they go to after that assuming they make it that far. And then, of course, out in the broader culture as well. So you have this phenomenon. It is spread from Baltimore City and Baltimore County, and it will continue to spread. And it's actually ubiquitous in the culture now. Where you have this kind of bullying when I was a kid was a shrimp. Well, I sort of high school I was five to I've grown some since. Then I mean by full foot, actually. But I was a little guy. So I'm aware of what happens the little guys. One of the things that I told my son very early on that it was his job. As a man to stand behind. December other stand between the smaller and weaker and those who would harm them. This is his life's work now in the military. It is just amazing to me that we now have a culture where somehow that lesson is not being taught uniformly because clearly this is not one disturbed child who did this. This is a couple of kids bullies in an elementary school. Just about killed another child. So what should the punishment be for these kids? How do you handle this one? Well, they're just children. They didn't know. There has to be some understanding it some conscious level that you'll be doing damage to another human being by tossing them out of a moving vehicle. Asked me some understanding at that age. The this would be something that would hurt this child potentially break a bone. You know, maybe scrape him up some no he was unconscious for more than a day. I would imagine. It's quite a good little brain bleed got going on there. And that child is alive through the grace of God. And Baltimore County in Maryland. I'll lose a family of eight. I would imagine six kids. Mom, dad who had out to West Virginia. Because the amount of bullying going on here. And this was not an isolated circumstance. In that neighborhood. Is something that can no longer tolerate. This is a major problem for the culture. Chris pants overbill WBF. Good report. It's very cute kid. Nice kid. You know seems like a nice little kid six year old. Well, why don't you want to go back to school? Well, because they threw out the window of the moving bus. And I wonder what kind of memories that child is going to have. Of that event and the aftermath when the little Jason is in his mid twenty s or mid thirties is a think back on this and just marvel at the brutality of one human being toward another human being a does start young. So there you have it. Featherbed lane elementary school. And it's just off Windsor. Mill just inside the beltway. Word one area and. It was a pleasant looking neighborhood. You know, it's not too far from social security around Washington that neighborhood once or twice drive out of there. That's my first opening observation for this day. It's rick. It is horrific. And I have no other way of characterising other than the children who did this. I mean, I still have no idea in my mind's eye were a judge deciding this case, how would I decide I mean, what would the appropriate punishment be for these kids? I I truly don't know. Obviously there elementary school kids elementary school kids. This is in to eighteen year olds doing this to a fifteen year old. These are kids in elementary school. Who decided oh, let's have some fun. Let's take a small six year old child and throw him out the window of the moving bus. What is failing in their soul?

"Baltimore City council considers ways to deal with the Catherine Pugh under situation, the trial of the will begin in the murder of officer, Amy Caprio propaganda. Harris begins today, we'll touch on that as well as some other issues here in just a moment. Also talked with the director of the of the Newseum in Washington DC Bill Marshall Judicial Watch stops by about thirty minutes. Talking about the latest hot cases, they're investigating what they're working on. So stay tuned for that as well. Baltimore City council will now way some new ethics rules and limits on may oral power in a series of bills. And of course, these are measures would ramp up financial oversight disclosure requirements. Protect whistleblowers and a spokesman for mighty Jack young Lester Davis says young supports this debate. Beginning of the city council wants to ensure their broader community is included in this process. Many of the ideas, the council are planning to take up would require amendments to the city charter which that doesn't happen till the next election in November twenty twenty but that on the ballot before the voters would not need approval from the council summer of that year. So we'll see if there's anything that can be done legislatively to you know, you always put all the new ethics rules in that you want Frank. But it always cracks me up that if they aren't following the ethics rules at are ready in place. What makes you think they're gonna follow the new ethics rules? That's number one number two as wondering if up to the voters who is if they want to put limits on may oral power or not in right now, the voters have Baltimore City seemed to be happy with the ideology, man. I'm surprised they just don't put a charter amendment in to eliminate the Republican party and in Baltimore City and just ensure the future election of all Democrats. Well, at least as you know, the obviously are aware of of the situation and something's going to have to be done about it. And so this is a start on the, you know, the Pugh. And what's her involvement with these lucrative book deals and cetera et cetera. Was probably the straw that broke the camel's back. And so now, the city council is between a rock and a hard place. I think they've already made it known. I mean, they voted unanimously that the the mayor should resign. And so since she is not resigning or has it announced. So this is I guess the next step. They have to take in that is to consider changes in the limits on the power of the mayor and a way to oust of sitting there, and I'm sure they're thinking about her when they say that the the problem is then the it's really I think they've done this before mistaken, I think three or four years ago, they tried it with Stephanie Rawlings Blake. She vetoed the entire ethics rules package that came out of the city council. So you get a fifteen to nothing vote. It would be hard to override the veto. It would because right now all fourteen members of the council of call on mayor Pugh to resign, including. Jack. It would be fifteen would be fifteen, but I guess he would have to recuse himself from the because he's got vested interest. Just just guess still unanimous one way or the right, right? So again, so maybe that's what they're weighing in on the power of that. Who knows they may even vote to become the eleventh municipality in in Maryland to allow illegal aliens to devote in local elections because you already got what came remember all them. But there's college park there's two commie park and. Kawhi heights Ville amount ranger. The DC suburbs. Most of those are the disease, so but again, I think in fact, all I think in either Montgomery Prince, George's county all ten so we'll Baltimore become the first who knows we'll have to wait and see about that. The trial begins today for Dante Harris, the teenager cues of killing Baltimore County. Police officer McCaffrey, and it is said to begin today warn Brown is the attorney for Dante Harris and remember it should be interesting because they're actually arguing that. Of course, he stepped on the exceleron or in a moment of panic. Basically he didn't mean to run her over and killer. But you know, he was there in that neighborhood. Just liberating some of his friendly neighbors from their belongings along with a group of others that just an innocent act on the part of the misguided youth who just went down the wrong pep. He says facetiously, but this is going to be interesting because you know, you've got it in front of a jury in Baltimore County. It is again, I really wanted to get down there and cover this one. I'll warn Brown is going to explain that. Did he really mean this stuff on the break and hit the accelerator by accident? When when he was ordered out of the vehicle, and this is going to be a hard one to prove, you know, because you have intent involved here did he intend to run over the police officer killed the police officer. I wouldn't. To be honest with you, I wouldn't expect a first degree murder conviction at there is a conviction. I would suspect the second degree murder or. Manslaughter one or the other. Yeah. Because audio into the knobby. So it looks like he ran over to to get get away from her to escape the killer. Whatever the case may certainly didn't put the vehicle in reverse in backup to avoid her. I mean headed drive, and he Florida apparently and killed the officer Capri. Oh, so it's going to be a very interesting. It's going to be heavy lift, I think, you're right. Look anything that gets a thug off the streets is a is a good thing less. Prosecutors have more evidence than they might they have.

I hope Frank feels better quickly gets back. Yeah. He's recovering slowly. But surely, okay, good. So over the weekend, I came across a premises liability case that was recently heard in the court of special appeals here in Maryland. This was a case was appealed by the plaintiff from the Baltimore City circuit court as we've discussed several times on the program. Premises liability cases are difficult to prove because the plaintiff must not only prove negligence. But they also have to prove notice that the owner of the property knew or should have known that there was a defect or dangerous condition. Now, this most recent case that was filed in the quarter special deals illustrates how difficult these cases are for the plaintiffs even when you think is a plane if you can show notice so here, the abbreviated facts of the case a female was walking on north avenue in Baltimore City when she stepped on a water meter cover. We've all seen those or maybe even walked over them before. Well, this water meter cover flipped up and her left lake sell into the whole resulting in pretty serious injuries to her leg and her entire body. She ultimately sued the city of Baltimore, and the construction company that had been working actually on that street doing some excavating work both defendants though argue that they didn't have notice of the defect about the water meter cover that it was a loose. The plaintiff though was able to show that the construction company was working on that street and also obtained a letter from the city to the construction company which in parts. Stated that quote, the job was done and the lid is broken from this documentation, the plaintiff contends that the construction company had noticed that they knew that. There was a problem with this late and failed to rectify the situation. Both defendants filed what's called a motion for summary. Judgment, basically saying that there was no notice. There was no issue of. There was no genuine issue of material fact here and the court actually dismissed the case. So the plaintiff appealed the case the court of special appeals, and they actually affirmed the ruling, unfortunately, stating that the letter from the city was not signed. And there was more evidence necessary to authenticate it. So even here when you think is a plane if you have noticed you don't so this is a pretty tough decision for the plaintiff's case, we'll see if they appealed to the court of appeals our highest court. So that's it for today. I hope everybody has a great week Frank feel better. And we'll.

Anytime you you, you know, I don't know if this is true or not. But if it trucks are breaking down there. No parts. This sounds like what the military was going through having equipment breakdown, especially on planes, and what have you and not having the parts, you know, to prepare them. You're right.
