But the studies are among the first to suggest a vaccine may stop the spread of the novel coronavirus and not just prevent the people vaccinated from getting ill. Dr Jon Swartz and Burn cold clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The implications of this are enormous Republicans standpoints in vermin individual standpoint. If if the If these numbers are even numbers significantly less than this hold true, that is that once fully vaccinated. Well, first of all we know once fully vaccinated. It's Very, very, very, very unlikely. We're going to get seriously all and there's no evidence that you'll die after you being fully vaccinated. So we know that. But what if after you're fully vaccine, you get reinfected. We know you're not gonna get sick, but you could spread it. But what if you can't spread it? Or what? If it's very unlikely for you to spread it? It's gonna really mean that our masks they're going to come off sooner that we're gonna be hugging her loved ones a lot sooner right now. I'm fully vaccinated have been fully vaccinated now for this Just actually, three weeks today, um If I knew that I couldn't transmit this virus to my loved ones, I would My strategy would be very different. If I may ask you really come off. I could be hugging. Uh huh. But I don't know that yet, And so I have to still remain vigilant. And that is where a mask and social distance to be absolutely certain that I can't do that and think about all the health care workers. If the health care workers knew that they didn't it once they're fully vaccinated, they wouldn't transmit that would make an enormous difference in the hospitals. And think about just Transportation. It's just goes all the way down the line. So the implications are

Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine found to be 90% effective
"Promising Corona virus vaccine is from the drug company, Fizer today. The pharmaceutical giant says early data suggests its formulation maybe 90% effective at preventing covert 19 on Lee Barrett. Reports Co 19 vaccine developed by FISA and bio intake prevents 90% of people from getting the virus, according to preliminary analysis. It's being tested on over 43,000 people without safety concerns being raised and could receive emergency approval for use by the end of the month from feature story news in London. I'm Ali Barrett. The announcement does not mean a vaccine is imminent. The interim analysis from independent data monitors looks at 94 infections recorded so far in this study that's enrolled nearly 44,000 people in the U. S. And five other countries. Some participants got the vaccine. Others got the placebo visor caution that the initial protection rate might change by the time the study ends. Even revealing such early data is highly unusual Doctor Jesse Goodman of Georgetown University The former chief of the Food and Drug Administration's vaccine division ticked off many questions still to be answered, including how long the vaccines effects last and whether it protects older people as well as younger ones. Goodman cautioned that even if icers vaccine proves the effect of it's going to be a while before it has a major impact at the population level. The vaccine by Pfizer and this German partner buying tech are among 10 possible vaccine candidates in late stage testing around the world for them so far in huge studies of the U. S. Another U. S company but during a incorporated also has said it hopes to be ableto file an application with the FDA for its vaccine later this month, infectious disease specialist Dr Anthony found, she said the results suggesting 90% effectiveness are just extraordinary. Clinical professor, a marriages of infectious diseases that UC Berkeley School of Public Health Doctor John Schwartzberg called the data from the Visor vaccine stunning. There were there were 94 people. Who got sick and 80 for them were in the group that receive placebo. And only nine who got the vaccine got sick so that that's absolutely Running. Um they're going to continue to trial up to 166. People get sick and they've got 44,000 people in the trial so they should get there pretty quickly, Schwartzberg said. Important questions about the data include whether the results were as positive for older people is younger and across, so she socio economic and ethnic differences. Another is whether the vaccine prevents infection without symptoms as well as the disease itself prevents you from getting infected like, for example, the measles vaccine would do You can't spread it lets you get infected, But it doesn't let you get sick, responsible. The still spread the virus. So these are questions that come out. But still, even if it is 90% effective in preventing us from getting sick, That's a major step forward. Public Citizen, the consumer advocacy group called the relief of the preliminary and incomplete data. Bad science, said that any enthusiasm for the results must be tempered.

"In comparative literature is the relationship in center and periphery that does not exist sister exists to a lesser extent with the globalised university is hebrew literature where does this place your inquiry in relation to other comparative literary investigations i say two things when is that i recently read george eliot janelle rhonda in english and i remember speaking to my mom she says why does it take you so long to read it it's such a short book short mom it's like huge amount of pages and then i realized is with wait was translated into hebrew only half the story was translated there is a jewish right because who cares about the other people so this is exactly the kind of i would say power structure that we usually think right at the center having the power and the periphery only being influenced but in that instance for example there was a periphery that was taking control a huge amount of agency on the canonical work you know to fit it to a specific kind of dion so what i think is happening in this has to do with translation translation theory that that kind of work so much on is that translation abel's rethinking of this power structure which of course i mean there is no doubt that the center in many ways has or is the center of power but that the periphery has many ways in which it can intervene in that head to monarch power structure would say or maybe even subversive or verse it or we think it i think that the issue of translation would be a good segue into my next question to hana which is about the presence in english of all this in you writing in glacier teaching english translate into english what do you play staying language multilingual matrix my mouth still hurts at the end of the day speaking so it's hebrews always it's and i publish and write in hebrew with great joy and it's so much easier it's really disconcerting after so many years to suddenly look at a page and say is this even make sense in english as a grammatical sentence but i really see this work of mediation as important translation and scholarship in english for the american audience not just american juice but maybe particularly american jews who seem to be an i'm going to fend people really invested in maintaining this fuzzy field goodyear despite that has absolutely no resonance of deep knowledge behind it and look at what's happening in the hebrew school systems in this country i mean it takes a real effort to actively prevent young kids who can absorb any language from learning hebrew two fourteen years they still don't know hebrew so there has to be some cultural investment in not knowing brew by working right hebrew literature into the fabric little bit right of american culture of american jewish culture not that i have any allure asians about the effect that my work in have that are working you know maybe it's going to start tasting a little better right to put in the effort to actually develop multilingualism because american culture is just as guilty of that ideologically driven monolingualism except that it has the power of imperial american english also known in academia as the english department where everything is done through english translation and there's no need to actually study the sources right do you feel that your work and alters work and others has in the way contributed to also a better understanding of the politics of language literature always real i would really hope so i would really hope so i i always struggled with my publishers to whenever possible allow annotations that give the cultural back ground that allow nuance to be added because the black and white dialogue or discourses is really again ignorant i think looking at a poet like you'd be high and trying to reconstruct why he was considered dangerous so dangerous in the early sixties that muscles together with other people went to ben gooby on to hell sheena right to tattletale in this is a very good poet but it's very very dangerous mister nut my owed to try to strip away some of the layers of appropriation and remonial emptiness and allow people to develop the tools which is like learning a language right to actually look at what's rick to actually attend to the techs i think that's the politics to pay attention and poetry can be very interesting in that respect because i have to say that as a translator myself north of literature and.

"Israel it's only seventy years old as we all know but also zionism as a national project for understanding comparative literature it needs to have some sort of national grounding in order to be universalized or the contextualized how do you treat let's leave medieval poetry but let's look at preside it's hebrew pitcher in the dial sprout how do you classify whether you how'd you pigeonholed whether you place it i would say it's very interesting to me that you're asking about hebrew rather than jewish trigger we think is differentiations that we all do very unimaginative and i think jewish literature is itself a concept that he's very hard to pigeonhole right is it about territory is about language is about belief is about culture but i think what is incredible in what we think of as jewish literature is that it is deeply always has been historically comparative that is you would see texts and books that are have right judeo arabic and arabic or latino in spanish or ye dish in hebrew course side by side so i would say that it is even easier to work in a comparative perspective with jewish literatures than it would be other places you preempted my next question so just piggyback on that this is really important and i'm really glad you brought this up because you know outside of the nationalist narrative if you tell somebody oh we're only going to look at a ride hers of in one half of it not the other right you think that that was crazy but beyond leak mendel mojos fully moshus foley fog in your slow bill thing being mean how chef all wrote both in hebrew and in yiddish and yet they're taught separately and historic sites separately similarly for the literary trends and movements right haskell has scala right but never so there's a whole set of questions that become askhhabad not not to say answerable only if you do a joint literary historian graffiti and that's the comparative moment within but to continue on this point and ask you about hebron literatures sometimes as you said by the same authors skew whether you see them as complementing each other and each other or as rivals in other words are they romantic partners or evil stepsisters well question i'm sorry no me seidman is not here because that's not me you said you're going to be on a plaintiff israel that you want to answer this question so her first book was not a translation but an amazing book hold a marriage made in heaven the sexual politics of hebrew in yiddish and it should have had a question mark there with a jewish irony right a marriage made in heaven right but of course you see press doesn't have a sense of irony which is a problem as a translator at strand centers that we come across a lot so yeah of course it's not i'm okay you're okay we're all but there is a joint intellectual project of has a lot of tensions but i'll give you one example if you look at this extraordinary phenomenon of women poets arising in hebrew literature in the shoe in the pre state palestine in the thirties right all of a sudden done on rights how you know michelle hold right we had women poets it's a great discovery and their three four and there's a huge excitement about rediscovering and recanati is in them when you look at their poetics in comparative terms that is in terms of a rigorous literary theoretical analysis and you see their affiliations not just with russian acmes anglo american images them german expressionism but also with dozens and dozens of women poets in yiddish writing between the two world wars all of a sudden they're majority and they're in touch some of them are in israel some of the posts in new york are in israel for a year or two on a mogollon qadeer mullah skiied cetera we are just now beginning through the research that some of our phd's have done to connect the dots but for ideological reasons those connections which are not always sweet but they read each other and their joint literary system would end also that one of the things that i think are very special about hanoi's work and least for me is that.

"A competitive literary perspective i think so but yeah you should jump in here because you're comparative perspective in your experience both in israel and here has really been very telling yes the literature itself has always been critical of this single lands perspective the literature has always been in dialogue with hebrews linguistic others cultural others but you know both yiddish and judeo arabic or era bay or latino have been suppressed for at the logical reasons and the literature if you read it in theoretically sophisticated rigorous comparative context allows you if you allow it to fear is for you it allows you to see what the blinders have been preventing us from c but to yeah you mentioned generations though i would consider myself a third generation of this family i studied under miki wisman igloos men who was kind of student and was dent the head of the department telaviv where did my being a still for me studying hebrew in berkeley made sense completely because i grew up thinking of this as a vibrant center of hebrew literature but it is a question that i encounter again and again and i think one of the things are main examples for me of what happens when he is taken out of a national territorial context is what happened to me and i'm sure people of my generation were degree with poetry of you dammit high which i grew up on that too did as well as something that symbolizes conservatism right we memorized it we've read it again and again in every morial service and then i came here in under hannah i was i hope not under enough and during the most symbolic of ways under her guidance opened a new door for me to be able to see a very different facet of thrust runs through his poetry in threes prose fiction for example and that's something that i believe i could not have been able to see in in israel it's very hard even not not the world is not thinking is supposed to be loaded there are of course many things that are possible in these rayleigh kadena that are not possible in the public sphere in are incredibly important but i think in the case of you dummy hi it's so incredibly ossified and as i think the alec was for the for my generation exactly that you need to exit estra gay to yourself there you dramatically from context to be able to see things differently it's very much like what we bubbled or equal only describes with medea evil hebrew poetry it's only when when he taught it to me and when done pod was here for a year just before he died as it turns out and opened my eyes to the incredible beauty and diversity of that poetry of homoerotic pollens by great rabbis that are gems of poetic imagination did i learn to disassociate right the many evil from the ossified and you need that distance but now because of that circulation that's is possible in israel a lot of the people who were trained here and elsewhere you know i'm a little troubled by it because we used to be outliers attacked and all of that and now it's kind of the establishment so what did i word i go wrong but the interesting thing about hebrew and israel on his writing national is is that hebrew culture nobody knew preceded the state of.

"Radio show dedicated to all things is really an intellectual featuring longform interviews with writers and scholars from different backgrounds and of different orientations it is my pleasure to facilitate this morning's plenary session on the topic of the berkeley school approach to hebrew literature distinguished guests today represent two generations of that school hanoch ron filled is professor of hebrew dish and comparative literature here at uc berkeley she has authored co authored and edited numerous books on different aspects of literature and literary theory she has also been a prolific translator of israel poetry which it will soon take up an assistant professorship and been growing in the department of foreign literatures and investigates she has recently completed her phd dissertation in comparative literature also here at uc berkeley and herself been a prolific translator of hebrew as well as portuguese tree thank you both for joining us today let's start with you and i ask you general question by way of introduction we heard that berkeley has long been a center of the study of hebrew literature and light to ask you what is or is there any added value to studying teaching hebrew literature outside israel what's so far away from the mothership in literary studies can everybody hear me and thank you for coming and it's wonderful to see old friends and hoping to make new ones and thank you rebecca and shy everybody it's in literary studies we have kind of an aesthetic criterion called def amelioration so in order for the aesthetic to make the ordinary perceptible right we need to have some distance from it because our experience of it becomes autumn so i think that's one of the things that's enabled when you're d centered and since a lot of my work in literary theory has to do with concepts of the minor and the marginal and how that becomes an achievement term you know i wanna being the margins too there's no room everybody's rushing there it's really ironic but wonderful that we've had the good fortune to collaborate especially with tel aviv university but over the years with other israeli universities as well as a matter of fact historically most of our graduate students have been from israel many of them like you in return to israel and i think that the perspective that we develop here which in turn started out at the cello vive school that benjamin her shove started in the late sixties is part of this transnational sir circulating of literature and of the study of literature that returns hebrew to its multilingual unabashedly as i said in the clip dia spore ick embrace of plurality rather than this kind of construction of a straight line from the tunnel to the palmer skipping all points in between one of these points bins gift over ideological you know you guys are israel studies folks yeah i mean we learned from literary feary from complex it right from people like valter benyamin who experienced it in the flesh soda speak that teleological linear conceptions of history only worked for the history of the conquerors and that we need to be able to also look at all the possibilities in the past that we're not take right it wasn't always going to be this way reding hebrew literature of the husky love the enlightenment period as a direct line to the nation state is totally historical but that's the narrative that you get if you have the ideological blinders on when you get some distance you can perhaps e that that's just one way so is effect that he will literature has been so coopted ideologically by manifestly ideological enterprise does it lend lend itself more readily to be started in.
