What the immune response to the coronavirus says about the prospects for a vaccine
"With a number vaccine candidates against the corona virus sharing promising results in clinical trials and a growing number of studies elving into our mean response to infection. The spotlight has turned once again. On the body's defense mechanisms. I think two questions that really relate to the ability of the vaccine to protect us and our ability to fight off a second infection and so that is the quality of the immune response and the duration of the immune response this week. I'm joined by professor. Eleanor riley from the university of edinburgh to dove into these questions and more. I'm nichole davis. Welcome to science. Weekly ellena you came onto the podcast in july and talk to us about immunity and covid nineteen specifically the relationship between antibodies and immunity. So let's start with a recap on the major players in the immune system that are of interest when it comes to an immune response and potentially immunity so antibodies are protein molecules that are produced by immune cells kobe cells and these cells live in our spleen and narrow and they secrete antibodies off. They've been exposed to a foreign organism such as virus. There are two types of cells that produce. Antibodies on short-lived cells that produce. Antibodies for a few weeks national to the first line response and then some of those cells transition into lonely cells that goto a bone marrow and can produce antibodies for months years. Possibly even to case and then on top of antibodies. have that can kill virus. Infected host cells t cells the two types of t cells one of which we think of such of the conductor of the orchestra of the immune system and these kotei health cells and they very much help the b. cells to make antibodies produce. Growth factors may direct the direction in which the be cells developed and they will still give them signals to turn into cells and then there are the cdte cells and they actively kill virus infected cells and then Antibodies can also bind to these specific cells and help them to kill cells so they recognize little bits of virus on the infected cell bind to the infected so and kill it and then there are cells which are less specific cells that we call macrophages are neutral fills and they just recognized that. Something's not quite right with the cell. They don't necessarily recognize the infected with the virus and they kill it actually or bits of the immune system work together a little bit like you need a whole orchestra to make a good tune when you need all of these cells working together to make a good news arms. And i know you said in july that at that point it was too early to tell how quickly people were losing their antibodies. And we've got to remember here that it's a relatively new virus. What's the latest research saying that seems to have been some movement on that now. What we're seeing is if you all the data together. There's an early peek in the antibodies wants. Lots and lots of antibodies are produced to mop up all virus. That's in your body and then as that virus goes away the antibodies start to decline a little bit. Because you don't need them any antibodies anymore and they settle into a of steady class. O of antibody production. And that's very typical. This kind of two phase response the only peak lots of antibodies followed by sort of standing level of antibodies. That nick for a long time. That's very typical of an antibody response and it sort of relates to the short lived long lived cells. You have lots of short-lived cells making lots of antibody that off and then the long lived cells who that fewer in numba keep on producing. Antibodies for much longer so yes. Let's talk about these long-lived b. cells in the no said the t. cells. What is research telling us about what happens to them and how. How long do they hang around for. So we don't have much data on those are actually quite difficult to look at in humans. They tend to live in the bone marrow for example not very accessible and so we tend to rely on mathematical modeling of the change in the dynamics of the antibody concentration to predict what's going to happen even though we haven't actually been able to see it because it hasn't gone on long enough so the moment the infants is that we have suggests that things are probably okay these cells behaving as we expect them to the was one pay published early on suggesting may be a little bit of a fault with the production of these long midsouth. But i'm not sure that that's been replicated in other studies. I think i saw a preprinted study. That hasn't been peer reviewed yet. Which jested that these visas and t so's lost for at least six months is that. What are the problems here in terms of measuring this so we only have six months data at the moment and the virus really hasn't been around that long so what we can say the moment. Is that the cells assisting for as long as we are able to measure them at the moment obviously in six months or another twelve months time. We'll be able to go back to those people and say have they still got those cells. Yes or no. But in the meantime just looking at the change in the dynamics of the response and mapping it onto what we know the other viruses. My prediction is that these that there will be some long lift immunity to this virus. He said there might be some long term protection. How long term are we talking here. I mean i've seen a lot of people saying well current viruses such as that of course common code some codes of course by coronavirus is of course the protection only lasts for say a year or so. Do we think that our protection against the corona virus that causes covid nineteen mike baxter timeframe or or could it be longer. I think it's very difficult to say at the moment. Say all of the data. We have suggests that these antibody responses are going to be at least as long lived as response of corona viruses. And possibly i might think even probably going to last longer your immune response tends to be proportional to the level of threat that you face so the common cold corona viruses really only colonize our upper respiratory tract so on nose throat and so the virus doesn't go very deep into apology and we make rather grief that effective noon response nose and throat that controls it this coq nineteen causing virus goes much deeper into our bodies it goes down into our lungs into bronchial and therefore the immune response tends to be stronger and they struggle we call systemic immune responses do tend to last longer because they are recognizing that there is a more serious threat that has to be dealt with. Do we know if factors like ethnicity gender age factor in the scale of the immune response. She said stronger. Immune response to your first. Infection is is more likely to me. You have great protection against the second infection. Those factors correlated at all. There's very little day to so far on ethnic differences in the immune response the data. That's coming after the vaccine trials suggests that there aren't any major differences in at between ethnic groups in terms of whether the vaccine protects them will not but we haven't yet seen lab data on their antibody responses with at t cell responses. There is a lot of genetic variation in the immune response. People be aware that some people unfortunately have very severe genetically determined immunodeficiencies. That's just the tip of the iceberg of genetic variation in the immune response and some of those differences do have geographical and ethnic components to that certain genes that either make good or bad immune response on more common or less common in groups countries. But we don't yet know if any of that is going to influence really the totality of their immune responses. We just don't have any evidence much by age. It feels like ages is. It's very important given that the older you are the more risque from caveat nineteen so there are two components to that one is whether you are able to make an immune response again's a virus. You've never seen before and there is. I think really quite good evidence that you ability to make a completely new immune response does decline as you get older. The other component is that a lot of the disease we say in coke nineteen excessive inflammation. And there's also evidence that we get older with less good controlling inflammation so it's a little bit of a double whammy as we get older way are less able to make an immune response to a new virus such as the covid nineteen virus and if we then get the viral infection where less good at controlling the inflammation that it causes a so we know there are several different vaccines. Which looking very promising. You have the rene vaccines at you have vaccines which used a chimp. Virus to bring genetic material from the corona virus into cells. The question is is the immune response that generated the same as it would have been to a natural infection and do the t. cells and so on hang around in the same way. The vaccine is just a tiny component of viruses this spike protein which is on the surface of the virus and so if you vaccinated with spike protein. You make antibodies in tesol responses just to that protein. If you get the virus itself then you get many many more pro teams that you're exposed to a new may make antibodies to some of those. So you responded more limited but you might also say that your response is more focused because it's actually antibodies to spike coaching a really important for neutralizing the virus so the vaccine in juices a narrow immune response but one would hope it would also be focused on therefore stronger on the base the matter and would it be expected that this will provoke a stronger. Immune response natural infection. I've heard some people say that actually vaccine can producer a strong response it coun- if they initial infection is quite mild say with virus like sauce covy to which induces very mild infections in some people i would expect the vaccine to tobacco to jason mewes which is much stronger than you would get after nascent dramatic or mild infection. People get serious dose of coca to make a very strong immune response. And i doubt if the vaccine it doesn't need to be any strong national adopt if it is when it comes to and viruses the coups common code. It's been some concern that these viruses somehow elude the memory b cells. and so. that's why even though we have thousand cells to to the common cold viruses. We will often get reinfected with them. I wonder if they're those same concerns about the coronavirus behind covid nineteen so there is a little basic data. There's one paper that suggests that the sauce kofi to virus that causes covid nineteen disables particular pathway in the b. cell response leading to a poor long term memory response but these experiments done in the lab in a in a in a petrie dish. And i think it's too early to know if that's really what happens in humans so i think we do need to be a little bit cautious and we need to be aware that it might happen. Good news is that the proteins that are believed to cause that problem are not present in the vaccine so even if it's a problem in natural infection it shouldn't be a problem with a vaccine
Washington DC Environmental Film Festival presents virtual fall showcase
"Festival in the spring, and this week it presents a virtual fall showcase from November 12 to the 18th the fall showcase.

"Didn't WanNa, tap into your Amazon expertise one last time, and so get your thoughts on what Amazon's GonNa look like in twenty twenty, one, 'cause you know last night obviously posted huge profits and. You know the coronavirus Say It's bent was benefiting from the lockdown environment has benefit. So. What you see happening with with Amazon next year especially as hopefully. We get out of this lockdown that we finally figured out a way to. Safely. Go Out and about and and social distancing is hopefully past me mean I can't even imagine hopefully that's that's crazy to think it's hard to imagine it's hard for me to Badgen to yeah. So so related related specifically to Amazon, a lot of these trends that you discussing that we saw in the three q earnings were trends that already existed, but then got accelerated and pushed into hyper speed during the quarantine during a pandemic. So you know people had already been migrating more toward online. Now doing a hell of a lot more than they used to specially older shoppers that maybe were more set into specific habits that. Were willing to try online grocery more for the first time and then said, Hey, this is actually pretty great plus I feel a lot safer are doing this. So why don't you just keep doing this even post quarantine? That's that's what a lot of expectations are. Is that online grocery online shopping they they were already getting millions more customers. Now, that's going to happen more often with that means traditional retailers is that dozens of them even more went into bankruptcy protection this year they were already hurting malls were already seeing less foot traffic again that accelerated. So what are we gonNa see in twenty, twenty one and beyond are. Fewer stores my expectation is, is that the stores that are going to be available are going to be much more experienced, really focused and you know there's going to be like more more focus on restaurants or like think of like the CRAYOLA. Place that you take your kids to. That's what more malls are GonNa look like where you're going to go there because it's more like sesame place or you know. Disneyland or something you know what I mean as opposed to. A clothing store we've seen it on our main streets a lot of time where like a bookstore or clothing store or a frame shop or hardware store really struggles to survive but hey, there's a really great pizzeria is a really great Barr. Those are going to do much better because Amazon doesn't really directly online also doesn't really directly compete with them as much. So it's been really amazing to see a lot of small businesses a lot of mom and POPs really kind a transition and adapt to the quarantine. They're going to have to take a of those lessons that they've learned and and try to try to make make like going out again really worthwhile people I would say. They're GONNA get a huge bomb, baxter the quarantines end by how are you going to get people to keep going years and years decades and decades afterwards is going to keep getting more difficult. He has I mean what you're seeing saying is essentially that this crowbar this isn't this isn't just a one time phenomenon. This will have fundamental structural changes to how a shop, right? How could at nine you don't have something like you. Know. This is a once in one hundred year type of situation and it's existed for most of the year. You do not go back to normal afterwards whatever you consider to be normal beforehand will no longer exists and that is a little scary. That's a little frightening but that's also the truth and some of it's GonNa be a good thing. But to assume that you know office environments are going to be exact same way that. They used to be or public interactions. I was curious to find out if in future see, obviously see es in twenty twenty one is going to be virtual but see twenty twenty two are people going to shake hands are they like because if I go to see twenty, twenty, two in my new life with mastercard, I don't really want to shake people's hands. It's really like a social construct that I was you know all. Four in the first place and I didn't want to insult people. So I did it but you know small things. Big Things are really going to impact people irate about it from the retail perspective because everybody's shops everybody spends money but you're going to see really echo in a lot of different places. A lot of places that people might not realize right now what what about with with grocery stores you talked about online grocers? Doing really well during the. There obviously their premium like I've noticed, my my budget has for food has gone up. Quite a bit as I've used lobbies online services. Greg I'm not spending on anything else. So there's there's that trade off but. As we go back to normal specifically with Amazon, because they've invested whole foods. Is. That do you see that trend sticking with with more online orders or a or will people go back to the grocery stores to shop and what what does that? What does that mean for Amazon? Okay. So I wrote a story about this a couple of months ago using All data company called Ernest and a grocery online grocery huge bump up this year but you still wouldn't even like you hardly even notice compared to overall grocery because grocery in the united. States. is like something like a trillion dollar annual business so it's still gonNA take a long time for online grocery really take off and become significantly mainstream but this year push them. Several years into the future. So I go to the Grocery Store I'm sure you know most people most people the data shows still go to the grocery store buy online grocery will become much more critical in the future it's going to be much less of a niche than it has been where it was like one percent three percent it's GonNa, keep ticking up there. Related to Amazon Day are looking in my opinion to be pretty savvy having purchased whole foods when they did before the antitrust like hammer started to come down because they'll be able to utilize whole foods and their new Amazon grocery brand the Amazon fresh As a way to really push into grocery because it's such a huge business so whether that's going to be in store or online, it's just going to help them continue to grow their business and also fight against Walmart who's one of their biggest competitors.

"That's where the danger is because we're giving it more opportunities to change to be different to evolve. So that's why social distancing is. So important, we don't want to give the virus more opportunities to become different right we want to make sure that we keep the numbers down and we also want to get a vaccine out so that we can lower these chances for transmission. Can you use your really brilliant way of explaining why masks work when we talk about our covid protocols being responsible how we need to stick to them lots of people? WanNa know how long we need to keep wearing masks and I think reminding US why they work. So well is a helpful way to encourage all of us to keep it up. Well. All masks are not created equal. But what we do know is having some sort of facial covering is definitely better than nothing and that there are many studies done that have shown the efficiency of certain masks. In preventing the spread of viral particles we know that the virus is spread by honestly. Any really any type of air coming out of your mouth it could be shouting sneezing, singing talking sneezing, coughing all of those actions can spread the virus. So it's best that you not only stay far away from other people, but you also cover your mouth with a bad ass and your nose. And you're don't your mouth and nose. Yes. So what can we do to stay healthy today? What are you recommend? Well. I, think that taking care of your mental health is very important and we talk a lot about physical health with the reality for many people is is different. We're all going through a lot of different things but most of us have not had much social contact with other people I implore that people do find a way to stay connected with other humans because. Human. Contact Social Socialization is is a natural human tendency. We are social species. So make sure you're still talking to people still expressing yourself in engaging with others even if it's just walking.

"We know it works. It doesn't always work as well as we think it should work but we do know that plays a major role in protecting protecting us as a society. So it's the responsible thing to do. We're working very hard to make sure that they are safe and that they are as effective as possible and don't have a lot of. You know we doing all that we can. So I I definitely recommend. Getting a vaccine and I will be getting the vaccine and I hope that you do too. I absolutely, well as well. I I think it's also important to remember. As you mentioned, we don't know how efficient they'll be. So sometimes, vaccines have, let's say a sixty or seventy percent success rate at making people immune to an illness, which is part of the reason that it's so important that everyone get them so that enough people can be immune to the illness that we can stop the spread is that right? Right? Exactly. So when we talk about vaccines, one of the things that we've also received some questions about is viral mutation. Will the COVID nineteen virus mutate? Is it mutating? If it does will EVAC seen still be Efficient or effective can you speak to that? Yeah so One of the things about the corona virus is that it's actually mutating slower than some of the other viruses that we know about, and that is because it has this Handy Dandy thing called a proofreading enzyme, which does exactly that it's able to read itself and check for errors and mutations are errors. So if Kovin has a built in spellcheck system ray, so it's it's mutating slower than other viruses than we know about but that doesn't it's not mutating it has it has mutated. There are studies showing that there mutated versions of the corona virus that have sprung up in parts of Europe and and perhaps, and other parts of the world. Mutations also will only become an issue when it mutates in a way that makes it easier for the virus to infect..

"Times changing human behaviors changing climate. Science is steady but also constantly moving and I think the both and can be hard for people to hold why why his science always changing can can you break that down for us a little bit and and maybe make that feel a little less scary. Yes I can break this down. So let's say okay, let's put ourselves in a time period were no longer in two thousand twenty we are now in the year seventeen, hundred, right We're in the year seventeen, hundred, nobody alive can even imagine what that's like but it's nothing like twenty twenty k. we are on horses. We're doing horse and carriages we're doing I don't know carrier pigeons. Life. Is Different. Okay and does there's no lighting. Yeah. We we're doing Campbell's were eating Porridge Ra. There's no uber eats there's nothing but let's say that somebody like was really curious about. Peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich let's say that we have Jelly sandwiches in seventy nine. I don't don't fact. Check me on this. Okay. I don't know but let's say they did exist them. So. Let's say scientists want to know. How many people like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the year seventeen hundred. They're gonNA go around with the PB PB and J. Sandwich Jim asked people yes or no do you like peanut butter jelly? and. You'RE GONNA get a yes or no answer. Maybe, they get a percentage sixty percent of people do like it forty percent don't like it great. We got the data we know that we're good right. Sure we're good for seventeen hundred when we ask that question. But maybe let's go to your eighteen hundred in another scientists comes up and says, well, I know that we know that sixty percent of people like peanut butter and Jelly and forty percent don't but do.

"Anybody can work hard to make a connection with their city and people who have power to influence change in create laws and new rules that can help to protect people in the city and also to promote -education and knowledge for citizens in the city and beyond even for for bigger institutions. So I was really excited and glad that they reached out to me because I thought it was so cool that they wanted to spread science to the city in have someone come in and engage the citizens of Buffalo. Well. I have to say as a person who's not a scientist by training who always loved science in school and who is still quite fascinated with science with. The universe space. All of the sort of stem technology's really I'm really really inspired by. Folks uniting behind science because when I think about human history when I think about innovation when I think about how we all got here, every good thing that exists on earth exits because of science and because of scientific research and scientific discovery and it's such a strange time. To Watch SCI FI. So under attack and to be able to do the research and discover that that this has been a very intentional. Attack Program that it was launched because of scientific findings about climate change `bout, big polluter industries that there has been an active disinformation campaign against science in order to maintain a certain power structure, which is dangerous for the earth and thus dangerous for all of us and it doesn't matter by the way if the all of us is conservative or liberal or votes, one way or another independent, it doesn't matter. It's it's what's on the planet for one of us is true for all of us eventually. And so. I am really excited when I see initiatives like the one year taking part in when a city says, Hey, scientists very cool and actually quite important and we need to catch up like we need to make up for some lost ground here and remind people that these are worthy pursuits..

"Interestingly, I really feel like I relate to that I think as a kid who always loved science and even as an adult, there's aspects of my day job that in a way require social science work. You know you have to really investigate human behavior in and the way that we function and and I think about. Even now in a time like this, looking at how the world is reacting to pandemic, and also how the virus itself behaves relooking at both human behavior and Viral behavior at cellular behavior and it's it's pretty interesting to realize that even across the scientific and emotional spectrums off things are often so connected. Absolutely. Yes I mean we could look at that from many angles. Obviously, if you don't believe in science, you know if you don't connect science at a personal level than it's hard for you to receive advice from scientists even though they're trying to protect you and help you protect you go and. On the other hand we also know that stressed people are more susceptible to certain diseases. So we have pay close attention to our mental health so that we can make sure that we stay healthy. So yeah, like just like you said, our the sociological implications of science and like our bodies are very connected in a lot of different ways So coming to this place today where. You have many letters after your name degree after degree title after title where you have released an album, which includes my favorite science song of all time, wipe it down which I mentioned earlier where you are writing a children's book and consulting on. So many other projects where you have been named to this Forbes Forty under forty list of power house. Folks including beyond say casual. How how did we get here? How how did Raven the little girl who grew up in Buffalo? Forge this path can can you take me back to your childhood two to eight or maybe ten years old and talk to me about where you found yourself where you always into science? You know you said you went to space camp did you know from a young age I'm so curious about. About who you were as a little kid. Baby Raven. Character. So so I think that came out of the womb as a scientist to be honest. And there. There was no point in time where I looked at myself and said, Oh, I, should do scientists that was always just my natural. Tendency to ask questions about the world around me and maybe when I was about seven or eight. I will I I should preface this by saying I learn how to read when I was three years old. I was reading books. So I had been, you know really hands on learning actually reading about the world around these. By the time I was seven I was like well Gee I don't WanNa read about mother goose I wanna read the dictionary i WanNa read the encyclopedia. But I started looking at the sky asking questions about clouds and I said, Oh, you know there's all these different types of clouds in the sky and I read books about clouds and learned that there were different names for clouds. Clouds make different types of weather an all of these different things than I kind of started going down that rabbit hole eventually I learned everything I could about clouds and then I said, oh. What about outer space that's past the clouds? And that's how I got into going to space camp and. But like I said earlier, I found out I was afraid of heights at space camp. But one thing that I did learn space camp was about all of the different careers that it takes to get someone into space Amas, physicists, biologists, you.

Dr. Katie Martin's Advice on What To Let Go of in a Pandemic
"It as would you have for teachers as to what to focus on? You've talked about like as a family what's helped you to focus? I'm thinking about teachers. What are we hold onto in what we love so much? We'd like the lives that is kind of I. Just wrote a blog their day. Because what's really Resonating when I'm talking people is I think we're trying to fit so much in right we're trying to get back to while we have to do school and we have to get through all of this. So we're still doing the same you know same worksheets, the same assignments, the same curriculum, and I'm not saying the skills are important they are but there's a lot of problems in things in the world to explore, and so what I would like to do more of is be present in the moment and help kids understand the world they're living in. There's great science lessons in the spread of disease and. Illness and exponential growth right. There's a lot of things to learn about racial injustice and and how we see things from you know our bias in implicit or explicit in how we come to the world lot of lessons to learn a lot of things to talk about politics. I just think there's a lot of things happening in the world that our kids are experiencing they're not. Because of adults talking about these things and there's opportunities to have better conversations with our learners about the world and about their own experiences, and so I would love to see more of that I would like to see less of a lot of worksheets assignments and you know those things that we kind of are used to doing in school and my son calls it trash can work. So it's Always resonates he says, mom is just trash can work I'm going to turn it in and it's just going to get thrown away. Why does it even matter and on the same I was just talking to some teachers and they were realizing I'm citing so much work and all it is it putting more were back on me as a teacher like grade all of this and the kids aren't really. Getting. The feedback, it's just this transactional approach to you do the work I'm mark it off I'd check it in the grade book and we move on and were missing out on the learning the conversation, and frankly people are stressed out beyond belief and doing this to themselves. So Baxter pandemic and thinking people are beyond stressed beyond overwhelmed and at this point in time we should be really. Thinking about our social emotional wellbeing, our health, we should be thinking about understanding the broader world and maybe just pausing a little bit on checking off all the boxes that used to be school and prioritizing on those those things a little bit more in our daily lives. So that a year from now, when we go back to school where whole humans rather than and wound up stressed out people who? You know don't don't aren't grounded. One of the other things that you had mentioned in that blog post that you're referring to was the power of self assessment, and so I'm thinking about you're really trying to create opportunities in ways for the students to just take ownership more of that learning in the process of that learning what might be some ideas as to ways the kids could self assess while I think it has to start with teacher clarity of our goals. So again, instead of saying, here's the worksheet or here's the unit tests that we're working on filling the answers and and move on and we if we. Kind of back little bit and try and figure out what are their like learning goals that were really going for is that that you you know it might be multiplication and might be that you understand different points of view depending on your subject or talk topic. So thinking about how do we really get clear on what our priorities are and then allow students to know this is what success looks like and it no success looks like then you can assess your work in relationship to that. But when we skip those first two steps and just assign tasks than what our students self assessing. Right, like I finished it. I got ninety percent or I didn't.

Pixel 5, new Chromecast and Nest Audio: Breaking down the Google event
"Google unveiled a trio of new products at its event yesterday in Chrome cast the Nest Audio Smart Speaker, and the Pixel five and Pixel four five smartphones. What do we think about them? I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me is Google beat reporter rich never welcome rich anything's happening. So let's start off with the headliner of the bunch that's Pixel five. What did Google veil in? How is this flagship phone your different from years past? So this is the pixel five. It's their premium phone for the year it's different because it's let's thing. It's it's not that different. It's actually kind of scaled back. From last year. So it's it's different. It's new, but it's missing a few things that the pixel four had a support add visual recognition and it had. Radar gesture controls kinda skilled at Baxter. This year the big thing is that it's cheaper it's hundred dollars cheaper than than was last year it's seven hundred dollars. Last year's was eight hundred dollars. So that's that's the main the main difference. Yeah I was watching the presentation, the the Pixel five feel little ho-humday me. There were no cruising features and really the the one addition to the the camera which has always been a strong suit was wide lens and and that's something you know apple had last year. I get one hundred dollars cheaper but you know this is supposed to be the premium device that supposed to setting example for what you know the best of an android experience can be. What did you think of the fact that they scaled down what what Google say about that I mean are you new software tricks like there's a there's a new thing called hold for me which she'll like if you're on, you're on the phone with the business and put on hold it'll prompt you to to get back on the phone to MT music and there's like nightside site. Married does those are some some new tricks but mostly yet it did feel scaled back google. Answered that question with reporters after the show. the they basically said that they wanted to be more more affordable and you know these things like the radar chip. those are expensive in terms of rnd in terms of components, and they wanted to make successful especially in pandemic although they could never have predicted the same but they said that they they saw the economy turning they wanted to go where the consumers we're going to be this year. Yeah. It's interesting that the really the biggest innovation quote unquote is the fact that it's one hundred dollars cheaper. And you know we've we've hit other companies over the head about putting out products that are overly expensive at this time. So I do give Google credit for that It seems a lot like they're taking some inspiration from there are lower in line to a line of Pixel phones and they launched a new one, the Pixel for a five G. Talk of that. Yeah. That one is actually really interesting. I think. Google has been pretty straightforward about its its struggle in the premium market. Their executives had been. said. Years ago that this is this is really hard for them. They've shied actually in the mid tier market, the three as sold really. Well, they stay already said that the forays selling well, the foreign with five G. will be really interesting because it's a five G. phone that is five hundred dollars and a really good value for that kind of next collectively and cheaper than a lot of the five G. phones I've seen already being introduced. Yeah and just tweet, Clinton the difference, the Pixel five starts at how much pixel five as seven hundred dollars the four, eight, five G. is five hundred dollars and the pixel foray without by using entered fifty dollars. Got It. So those you know those those phones are significantly less expensive. In our colleague short actually makes the argument in a story today that the forty five G. might actually be the better bet since does have the same camera Tek as the five, right? Yeah. Yeah. I'm Dr I think that really. Interesting Product Watch, and see how it how it tells. Yeah. It's interesting to note that the phone is not available for preorder. Yet I, think there's a wait list. ECHO comes out a little bit later than the Pixel five but I imagine that a lot of folks who'd be interested in that phone.

"That's really good question. Because Bob Bradley has been. The coach has been very open all along the first three games here. The group Stage Games those counts in the regular season standings, and so this tournament is Kinda turned upside down a knockout tournament like this. Generally the group stages kind of feeling out like the you know the first round enough in a heavyweight quite, you're kind of feeling that your opponents and get your legs under you you don't put a whole lot of emphasis on the first of three games. This tournaments totally different. These points cow. Everybody wants to win these first three. Three Games so when they go home. They have those points to add to the regular season standings. Then that makes knockout round. Kinda great. See how far you can go. and that was the approach Bob Bradley took so in a sense when they get to the NOC upstate. They feel like they're playing with house money. That's that's one way to look the other way to look at it as a guy like Yego Robson who has five goals and two assists here.

Times you cover soccer again sounds like. Okay. But you know a lot of these leagues have have somewhat you? They've found a little bit of confidence in that. They watched what happened in Germany and they're watching. What happens in Spain and England and Italy today and there's an Italian soccer match. I've been sitting here. Mark was kind enough to put some some soccer on before I even arrived today, so you can sort of see it and you go okay well. We. We Glean a little bit of confidence from that, and then you're like.

Because none of that looks good. He's a twenty eight thousand in the last two days in Florida. For doesn't hospitals in Florida reported intensive care units have reached full capacity. ICU's were full of fifty four hospitals against twenty four to sixty seven counties. Now again you might think well. These are young. Players are not going to end up in the ICU, and you're probably be right, but. There is a chance that somebody could have a gnarly leg break in the middle of this tournament in have to be taken to a hospital, and then you know we're dealing with. The luxury of professional sports you could have a Paul Pierce situation in the NBA where that guy has got to be taken to a hospital. That guy doesn't go back into the training room. You don't rub some dirt on. It doesn't become Paul Pierce just because you take them off in a wheel car I wonder. What contingency plans these these leagues have made though know. Hopefully non catastrophic injuries. Yeah well, you know somebody's GonNa Terron ACL. Some I mean. This is the stuff that's going to happen. It's not like it's well. Maybe keep your fingers crossed.

"They haven't been outfield and a week, so that was moved back, but you know what happened with Dallas essentially to players tested positive, there were some others that have inconclusive test results. Those came back positive it was total of nine. Then it became ten. DALLAS AWKWARD PRETTY EARLY Their coach made some statements in a press conference where. He's sort of intimated that. Yeah, they were ready to withdraw probably a good idea if they go home, we're sorry guys. We mess this up for everybody. MLS didn't take him up on that until the final test came in, and they were ten positives, they have their starting goal keeper who's under suspension for a domestic violence incident? They simply did not have a team. That could feel so I think. MLS was the one that finally ordered withdrawing. I think they probably did that to provide a little bit of political cover. FC. Dallas is one of the League's initial franchises wanting original ten so I. Think MLS did that to provide a little bit of political cover, but it was whoever gets the blame or the credit whatever you WANNA call it so with Ryan from the tournament. It was clear they couldn't play. Kevin Baxter The Times joining us on extra thirteen sixty in Orlando mls back tournament scheduled for tomorrow. So what happens with FC. Dallas they were scheduled to play a handful of games and see what would happen and see how far they could advance. This might again happen with Nashville. Everybody's waiting to find out what happened to the team. That's been withdrawn and what happens to subsequent teams that find themselves in a similar situation. Well what will happen is Good stage was a little lopsided anyways. There are twenty sixteen and MLS which doesn't. Divide.

Dallas had two players that cleared protocol in Dallas test positive when they arrived the hotel so they came into the bubble. Infected and other people get inspected the bubble, and once they're in talking to health professionals once there's an outbreak in the quarantine bubble. The call is now coming from within the House so. It's very difficult to get it under control. Why is emily going forward with the tournament? Don garber was with pretty upfront about it the the League stance to lose as much as a billion dollars. GARBER says he hasn't given us any accounting for that, but he's bigger is a billion dollars. They need to get some of that back. MLS Its largest source of revenue is sponsorships and gate receipts. They're not gonNA play games with fans for a long time, so the TV money will get from. This tournament is very big. Don garber also said another thing. He said the other leagues NBA NHL Major League Baseball they have passionate fan bases that that have been around for decades. Only twenty five years old. They're still building their fan base. He thought it was very important for the League to get back. Not just get back. Get Back I. If they play on Wednesday they will be the first league to come back of the pandemic. Hadn't started so technically. They're not coming back and I think we could argue that. It's not a major league to the extent. That mls than the others are, so it would be the first major league and United States to come back from the pandemic, and until baseball opened, you mentioned the padres opening in a couple of weeks until baseball comes back MLS has the sports. Stage to itself. everybody who wants to watch live sports. We'll be watching MLS. Maybe some people for the first time Don garber thought that was worth the gamble He's really intent on getting this tournament up and running, but already you know much ballyhooed opening day. DOUBLEHEADER is now down to one game. Kevin, Baxter, the La Times is in. ORLANDO, the MLS is back. Tournament is scheduled to go on tomorrow, although the schedule has been altered. Can you go into some detail about what happened with FC Dallas 'cause yesterday? It came out very very late in our show Kevin. And it was sort of framed early on that that they had to bow out of this tournament. The way that the Orlando Pride did for the National Women's Soccer League which you just referenced a little later on in the day, though it was suggested that they were withdrawn, and maybe that's just proper safety protocol here for major league soccer, but is this just bad luck for FC Dallas or is something else at play here or people?.

If you remember Black Thursday back on March Twelfth, Sports League in the United States suspended play. You know NCAA tournament was called up suspended. Suspended play NBA NHL WELL NBA The night before NHL Major League Baseball canceled the rest of spring. Training and the start of the season on that day on March, Twelfth One thousand, three hundred twenty three Americans across the entire country, had been diagnosed with coronavirus.

COVID-19 Question Answer Session with Dr. Amy Baxter
"So let's chat cove in nineteen. You know what what? What are some of the myths out there that you want to help us bus than you know? Guide us through that. Sure well I think the scariest myth was one. That was introduced to me by my bank teller. I put on a mask. She had on a mass. And we've known each other for years and she said confidentially. Is this really a thing? Because I've got a friend in Brooklyn says he drives by the hospitals in no one's there. Is this really happening? So the biggest myth is that coveted is not a serious disease that it's the same as flu. A study. This week showed that there actually are twenty one times more fatalities from Kobe in New York were from flu so the biggest Smith is is this going way and is is really a thing and the answer is no and yet Yeah no I. I definitely appreciate that. And it's real you know and a lot of us in the healthcare space Definitely feel it but there might be that out and so as we as we think about it. You know What what are some of the questions year getting and seeing that that you feel? The listeners could benefit from knowing around the around this virus. Sure I think that the interesting things are how this virus is different from other viruses and some of those attributes we could leverage for treatments and for care and some of them may get really scary because we don't have One of the papers I read yesterday said this virus is unlike any other and I think it's true. This pathogen is doing things that other viruses haven't so first of all the biggest difference is in infectivity by age. Usually we have what we call A. You're a where the very young ages we have a lot of infections in morbidity which means bad things happening and at the old ages we have a lot of corporate entity mortality. And we don't see that this one is very much a a along J. It's very very low. At young ages goes way at the top other than it. Strange about. This is how long it takes to become infected and how precipitous drop is when people have a problem so. I think that you probably know that. From the time of infection until you show symptoms can be five to seven days so that incubation is very long the scary part is that forty four percent of infections come during that a symptomatic face. So it's very easy to spread without knowing you have it. Which makes it harder to track. Hard to trace and hard to know who detest. Yeah it's It's different and and so how about the ideas of like where it came from and and you know why any thoughts around that sure well. It turns out that bats are natural reservoirs of grunted irises. So for example a Bola was initially in a bat in a cave. That a young boy outside the incident town was playing with. And that's where the virus team from as habitats change as the climate changes. Bats go out of their normal territories and they happen to have grown viruses as a very common infection. It doesn't kill them so it can be transmitted directly to humans now. The certainly the time that this virus started wasn't Wuhan an was from a back but it looking at the strains and the genetic typing of it it seems to be mutating fairly slowly and it makes it very easy to see when it started where it came from so the wet market in China is still the most likely it came from but no matter what. This is. The kind of virus that comes from that directly to humans. I'd heard that and I wasn't sure if it was true or not. I'm like is it. Is it really from Batson mean and then I also hear people saying it came from a lab somewhere? It's a chicken egg thing or a Atlantic yet. There was a there is a lab in Wuhan because of the risk of corona viruses. It had been studying. Bats heavily said SARS and Moore's so both stars and moons are Corona viruses and there had been increased studying bats in that lab. But it's because they're dangerous and because there are risks not because they're trying to create run irises or create infections. It's the fact that somebody was looking at it in researching yet because it was dangerous not that it became dangerous because someone was researching fascinating fascinating. I didn't know that connection. Thank you for that. So as we as we explore this J shaped curve. You know. I'm curious right. I mean I've got a three year old and I've got you know aging parents will tell me more about that and and particular things that you'd recommend for safety and and You know just things that we need to keep on our mind share it. Will I have a couple of theories about why the J shaped curve is typically the U shape curve has to do with mutagenicity so how well your immune system protects you and young? People don't have very weldon alter union systems so they tend to be more vulnerable to respiratory diseases and older people also have decreased immune systems so the the very heavy incidents on people who are over sixty five which seems to be where the cutoff is to have a dramatic increase in risk. That probably isn't due to decreased. Immunity one of the theories is that due to increased immunity. That there were the two grown viruses virus alpha and Beta cuddling named that were circulating in the late fifties and identified sixties. And so it may be that those people were alive in the fifties and sixties before it. Kinda petered out has some immunity that was developed that point which causes an excessive immune response in older patients. Now the other possibilities are this. Virus doesn't seem to enter the body and then get into the bloodstream and spread everywhere. It seems more like this virus comes into the body and marches a bit at a time. Almost as if the the troops come in and they set vacations and it's like World War Two and so the battalion's multiply and spread on a time. So with that being the case the interesting thing is that paper nature last week determined that tissues that this viruses attaching to before the lipid fatty layer of the virus. Fuses with the cell. Can the news in the nose? There's something called an ace two receptor. That is where the little spiky protein hops onto and holds on and their ace two receptors. All over the body but the ones that were interested in the nose and children don't have big noses they also don't have sinuses. You don't get a false at sinuses teenager interesting so because of that. Maybe that's why they they're less less at risk to to get this. Yeah absolutely if what we're talking about is something called viral load which is literally hell many virus particles. You have That is going to be difficult to accumulate in a small child. One of the interesting things I found out was that the nasal cavity size is dramatically. Increased over the age of seventy and it's Moammar nails. Oh is that right. Yeah certainly we've seen that males can be more at risk of catalyses more at risk of catching the virus than females. The ratio is about five to three some studies on about sixty percent of males.

"So much what a pivot to to a senator Marsha Blackburn who is joining us and she is a Republican from Tennessee and senator Blackburn thank you so much I know that you have not only been coping with this issue with regards to cook at nineteen but of course in your home state you have got a lot of people that are hurting and regrettably that are that are making funeral preparations at this hour and for that you have our deepest condolences well thank you for that and we appreciate the condolences and prayers and Tennessee is the volunteer state and I will tell you yesterday when I was out and out Wilson county Davidson county Putnam County which has been the hardest hit to see all the volunteers that showed up to help and volunteers in the churches that are coming around these families who are now planning funerals and in the midst of homes being destroyed in businesses being destroyed they are standing with these families and helping them get through a time of just deep deep grief and sorrow as they have lost homes and livelihoods and have lost these precious lives and are experiencing that grief senator Blackburn I was reading about to that there was a young couple the husband wife and a child all three of whom perished invests in that storm system those that tornado outbreak I mean you're talking about a generation of of a of a family that is just been eliminated and and how the how other members of family cope with that to me is just a it's a grief that I pray none of us ever know that **** well you're exactly right and to see these families and in the midst of this grief they're out searching for even a picture something from that family that they can use as they go through the process of remembering and the sadness fear the children that have died in this is the children that are hospitalized right now with injuries and the numbers that are hospitalized and have the injuries and Putnam County with eighteen deaths that are there it's just devastating and you look at this area of Baxter which is right outside of Cookeville Tennessee there in Putnam County is a community of about twelve hundred people and they've got a hundred and twenty five homes and businesses that no longer exist they're gone it is a field of rubble and it is just it is just devastating and there's they were using one building that was standing as kind of their command center there was a another market that was still standing one down the road was totally gone gas pumps market everything gets a sign of it anybody's ever walk to the this scene after a tornado it's it'll take your breath away the damage in Maine yeah I've been in war zones hurricanes tornadoes and I have never seen anything like this and are you satisfied help senator of Blackburn are you satisfied with the federal response thus far I have you been in contact with the trump White House I have been in touch with the president with the White House I was on the ground yesterday with the regional administrator for FEMA a team of which is the Tennessee emergency management association has a website set up it is T. N. dot gov forward slash team at T. E. M. A. I. individuals can go there and get information on how they access help but the governor in Tennessee is doing a good job we'll have the president on the ground tomorrow people are looking forward to having him there so that he can see firsthand so we're talking to sue us senator Marsha Blackburn and senator we saw also that your that the Tennessee governor had held a news conference this morning saying that Tennessee has the first confirmation of cold hit nineteen as well also from middle Tennessee talk about adding insult to injury as you guys are coping with the tornado damage you're also dealing with this covert nineteen outbreak that is correct in the state health department I had the confirmation on this case yesterday it is a forty four year old male he lives in Williamson County which is right outside of Nashville that Sir Brentwood Franklin area I he had attended an international conference which was held in the United States after he returned home he did not feel well so eventually as his system and his symptoms worsened he decided to go to take medical care and that is when he was tested and he is quarantined at home with his family now we we have seen some of the measures in places like China some of the European measures when it comes to this slowing the spread of cove it nineteen and and some other areas are taking pretty significant measures that we have not yet taken here in the United States one of which being the the UK government announcing that they're going to pay for people's sick leave from day one if they self quarantine image can you imagine every single taxpayer being on the hook for everybody's staying home from work in a two week or more self quarantine one one of the things I think said and we're receiving regular updates Dr sale team is doing a tremendous job N. ambassador Burke of leading the effort working with the vice president who is handling this they are very thoughtful they are getting information to us they are transferring information to your state and local health authorities and I certainly believe that the reason you have seen a slower spread here in the U. S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things
San Felipe, Santa Anita Handicap
"All right here we go. We're back on racing down today. Episode Number Fifty. We got a lot of stuff to get to today. Three fifty three fifty point preparations on the docket for this week. In one hundred Fifty Kentucky Derby points up for grabs three more horses will be on their way to Churchill. Downs weekend. There's also a bunch of other stakes around the country this weekend most notably the grade. Santa Anita Handicap. So we'll get to all those book. I we gotta get to the action from this past weekend in Saudi Arabia and the conversation is coming up at. I've seen it come up in multiple different areas is about the winner of the Saudi. Maximum Security You know that is probably the most the Kentucky Derby incident and you know. I'M NOT GONNA come on here and you know say that the Saudi Cup has anything to do with the decision that was made at Churchill. Downs or anything like that or argue that the disqualification now because he's one twenty million dollars. Saudi Cup shouldn't happen I I am not gonNA come on here. Make that argument I just off you know really looking at it. It's unfortunate that happened because maximum security is really just such a tough horse. And you know there's not enough good things you can say about maximum security and you know that raise really showed that maximum security is one of the best horses in the world and obviously right now. The leader of the pack in the United States for older horse. Right now and be really cool to see this horse competing for your old year and you know depending on where he goes from here. Obviously you know. They already mentioned that. He's not going to Dubai. But just where MAC security goes from. Here I'm excited to see that. And what he has in store you know. I'm sure Eric will have some of his things. Say about maximum security. But that's something not lost museum. Fortunate -ness of the disqualification at the Kentucky Derby. Because you know this is a really really fantastic horse for sure. I mean he's slowly and steadily starting to shed that tag of being the Horse Sector disqualified from the Kentucky Derby even though it will always remember that way. If you were to continue what you did last weekend easily going to be more remembered as one of the better horses heading into this decade in this early part of the century the obviously he's now ten million dollars in earnings in at this stage career. It's only getting go go higher. It'll be interesting to see where he gets brought back. I met in. Saratoga is kind of the midseason point. Four the connections there But honestly I think he's already cemented. His legacy added great horse. Just you know like cigar did way back when of when he won the inaugural Dubai World Cup. Maximum security is going to be able to say the same thing for the Saudi Cup where he'd be a really good group of Horses. I might add Definitely was not lighten any sense I think every horse for the most part Ranta form in the Saudi Cub ibew. Probably the biggest surprise people contend but definitely not be By a quarter of a lengthy Iran. Huge She's also in so many other horses from the race but maximum security Kind of a rough trip was definitely a target especially for teas on Mutual Gustavo. Louisa has had to get created down the stretch. But you work down in that. Horses has tons and tons of heart. I don't really know I've seen a horse. Who Does Not WanNa let him worse by like maximum security does. It's quite impressive. How this works bears down to every time he races and I just think I I I think we all know. He's in pre twenty twenty if he stays healthy yeah. That was another thing that I didn't quite get that opening. Bid Is the fact that you know. Maximum security did all that won the race while Iran Ortiz was basically writing interference. I made the comment to Eric Baxter. Excuse jokers still out there kind of looked like a NASCAR and now you can say all you want about. How you know. Probably wasn't the best rider. You didn't have good character of Iraqis. I thought it was a good strategy on his part to do what he could to be. Maximum security obviously probably definitely in this country If he would probably would have been disqualified but I thought it was good on his part to do his best to win. Win The race. And try to keep maximum-security away because I don't think I if you run that race normally maximum-security just goes by with the rules over there. They run category One rules which unlike in America the disqualification rules are if you preventing a worse from running their best race. You get disqualified. There is. That's worse when when you run interference or not so if mutual Gustavo Iraqis does dat but the horse wins by Lincoln half. It's not a problem. Give what was within the rules so it was a good ride? Bhai Iran It was definitely a little malicious. I certainly Jason Service not lease with IRA. Teaser was on the first things. He made a comment about after the race. In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven.

"So, so I wanna go inside the making of the sort of like I've talked about, like I've had Dave mcmenamin on. I've we talked about, like Lakers this function for a long time. So here's how I heard about this story. This is how this is how clueless about anything that's going on inside ESPN. I'm so on my own little bubble. I was out to drinks with a source in Optimus city ex like maybe two weeks before the playoffs or late March early April, and this person works for a team that is not the Lakers and said, hey, what does this Baxter home story that everyone's talking about? And I was like, what so you can't acce ter- Baxter. I don't think this person knows you Baxter has this big Lakers, like expose coming out like, well, what is it? What's in it? I'm like, this is the first I've heard of a man you work for you work for one of twenty nine hundred teams and you're telling me, what's happening ESPN. So that's early April. It is now may twenty-ninth the story came out on may twenty eighth. Clearly you have been working on this for a very, very long time in. The interim of me having that conversation and may twenty eighth. Magic Johnson resigns Luke Walton is at least semi fired. Luke Walton is hired by the Sacramento Kings. Luke Walton is the subject of a sexual harassment investigation. Am I missing anything or is that Frank Vogel is hired? Frank Vogel is hired f. Oh, yeah. There's that right. Yeah. So, so as all of this stuff in, particularly, the magic four our impromptu press conference therapy session outside the locker room happens. Are you sitting there thinking the momentum has been taken out of my story? Let's publish it. Now, now my story has changed, like, what is it like to live, that, when I assume version of this is already kind of in the can, and then all sorts of crazy stuff starts happening. It was stressful. There were a number of things that were happening in your, your thinking. How does this change what I have has changed reporting? But at some point, I was just thinking my story is gonna chronicle, what life has been like over the past two years since rob. Irvin a Senate to their posts. And this just goes into it in some ways, I felt that the, the absurdity of some of the things that were happening, reinforced, my stories and then urban goes on our air and describes. Rob is being, you know, the backstabber and the whisper, that he spoke about on the night that he resigned, it, I'll say this, too. So a little bit of backtracking. I started on this story about a year ago after Sports Illustrated did a piece of an expose on the Dallas Mavericks, and the inner workings of their culture, which would troubling a source reach out to me or I, I may be heard from a couple sources. And they said, if you want to take a look like inside a culture that's troubling take a look at the Lakers, and I started making some phone calls and things progressed a lot from there, and it was inch but it was, I can't speak to Hal necessarily words started getting around the NBA. I mean it's the Lakers were ESPN. So those are two fairly high profile. Things. But it was interesting talking to various sources or connecting with new sources and. It one case even a player who said, like, hey wins your story come out wins that I can't wait to read it or things like that. So that was I've never worked on a story, where there was probably as and the amount of texts I got from people over periods of months saying, you know, in, in various NBA circles, asking me when it was coming out when it was coming out was that was something I've never dealt with before. So that was that was definitely interesting. I've never experienced anything like it. In terms of people asking me because I am somewhat adjacent to you is ESPN colleague one is the story coming out. What's in the story? Is it true that x y and z and sort of like, look, I don't know. I'm not gonna as max what's, what's in the story. So here here's an overarching question. How, how do you one of the challenges of reporting a story like this is sussing out? Truth from sour grapes..
"baxter" Discussed on World Cafe
"Hi, I'm Kaleo to give you a little bit of insight into our next guest. The first single off his new album wide awake is about a dysfunctional relationship and to be shared. That's a near universal truth that we can all appreciate. However, when you realize the woman's name is Sally may, you know, he's not speaking about a human being, but instead the giant loan corporation. And that's how you get closer to the heart of railing Baxter as a songwriter railings got away of twisting those near universal truths into new ideas and songs, and you can hear that on wide awake. An album he recorded with producer, Butch Walker, it's a slick mix of power pop folk rock. And even a little bit of glam, we'll talk about Raelians upbringing. His dad's Bucky Baxter who played with Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, and REM. We'll also talk about the impact of spending time in a Baltimore jail cell and how he embraced a career in music. But first, let's get started with prerecorded me, welcoming railing, Baxter to the world cafe. It's the world cafe, high railing, Baxter. How're you doing. Fantastic Li, I saw you're gonna. Start with today is sung about relationships on its surface, and you mentioned a woman, but you don't mention her by name, but I was curious if the woman was Sallie Mae. Exactly. So this isn't a song about it is a song about relationships, but if you're not paying attention closely, people wouldn't catch this. Why did you write a song about this? Well, I was in a car with three. My buddies on our way to a lollapalooza few years ago to see cage the elephant play, and I went to college in Baltimore. I two years. It was paid for the second two years. It was not. So I had to take out loans. My grandparents co-signed.
