"Ever since. I don't think you ever went to my old place on the upper east side, but I did. I remember almost tripping over a four foot high stack of CDs by white wrappers that you had. I'm so pleased that that trauma was transferred from myself to you. No, it was amazing of stacks of CDs. It was incredible. It was a crazy, it's a crazy time. All in my storage unit now. Actually, I should say, I've said this to you, but my original idea for this episode was to Mike us both up and just go to my storage unit and just start opening boxes. And maybe we'll do a part two in the fall. Since this is going to be exciting stuff. But yes, so the upper east side, but I don't know if you remember where my desk. I have the same desk still, but on the wall that the desk faced was literally just things taped to the wall, photos, and narrative crime pod style. Just making connections. Exactly. And I don't really have that now, although one thing I do have up now is my buddy bijan came through with the college dropout release flyer in French. So I don't know if it's Canadian or from France. But it says Matt not omega. In stores now. But you know in my living room, I have that kind of like big iron thing and I have like things magnetized to that, like photos, random things. Something I find soothing about that. I never find, you know, you're like looking at a design magazine and there's like photo walls or art walls and it's like a 27 little friend. Yeah, that looks nuts to me, but like when I do it my way in this much more off handed like personal way, that feels very comforting to me. You mean so that you can change up the vibe every few weeks. Yes, you can change it, but also.

"But what do you think we can learn. Post pandemic about how we think about the development of and the distribution of diagnostics at large Or what do you hope. People will have learned from this experience as we move forward. Yeah i think if we were to sit down and write the after action report in a few years when hopefully the these waves of covert or behind us. I think one of one of the big lessons to be learned is that the guidances that public health authorities put out. You know just just were. It felt like they were chasing their tail. Each time and and diagnostics is the perfect example of that damien. In in the sense that we have public health authorities here in the us that are very science driven. I'd say we have a. Cdc that is a very academic cdc and not a real world cdc and that really just when you look at how. They've handled all the questions about testing whether it's pcr testing rapid antigen testing point of care. Testing i think the guidances around that have been slow and if you look some some pure venture capitalists of mine like bill gurley who's a tech investor but a really smart guy. He also points out the fact that they have sixty plus approved vendors for rapid antigen otc testing in germany for instance Versus are three or four. And so why is that from a regulatory and fda perspective that we have run it so much tighter under an e u way sort of setup you know it seems like the bar is high we need actual clinical studies run for our us for diagnostic tests here versus. I think what other countries are doing which is more sort of basic sort of equivalence type studies for their rapid antigen. so there's a whole slew of things. We're going to look back at. I the question. I have though damian is are we actually gonna take time to look back at these things or we just going to plow forward and And just you know unfortunately wait for the next pandemic tacoma net is the thought that terrifies me. Out of all of this. I have to do it. your wording. That bill early is tech investor. But a really smart guy. You as we're talking about all of this. I should know you know. We're recording this thursday morning ahead of the release of the podcast thursday afternoon and my colleague at nbc news. Heidi principle just tweeted some reporting that in president biden speech Thursday night on. Kobe efforts it's apparently going to include a call for all schools to set up regular testing. But i think the problem is going to be as you just pointed out john in. Dc how do they get access to these tests yesterday. Ten billion dollars allocated to school testing in the american rescue plan. But we did some reporting on this a couple of weeks ago and schools have all different ways of thinking about this and yes. They're cdc guidance. But as you said how do they get access to these rapid tests. How much optimism do you have that like in your school system. That's going to make a difference. Look i i have optimism that if we put our shoulder into it we can do it. But i have pessimism that it's going to impact the fall so even if the federal government puts his shoulder into it we have had a last mile appropriation problem. Lots of money has been given towards things testing and yet it hasn't actually been dispersed down to the states and school boards and counties. So it's a it's multipronged. I'm i'm glad if the president's announces something that's sweeping around testing that's better than ought been needling. People in the white house with my tweets over the last few weeks. Where is your plan on testing. I'm very pessimistic. That that's going to impact this fall. Where cases are still really high and big swath of the country. And it's when we need it now. You have a school age children. I was running if you if you wouldn't mind like sharing. What are you doing with your family with regards to testing yes so we have covert protocol in her house. We there's four of us in the household including myself were awfully vaccines to teenagers. And my one goal has been normalcy. This fall stay in school. Be able to socialize with your friends. Outside and part of that plan for us is to test ourselves so everybody in the family gets tested at breakfast tuesday morning and friday morning as long. School is in session. So twice a week rapid antigen testing at the breakfast counter. And they also do it if they go see their friends. And i will give rapid antigen test to all their friends. Everyone tests before they go have an outside meal at a restaurant so we're really trying to run that protocol safe with the goal being. We don't wanna be the house that extends the chain of transmission a secondary goal atom of avoiding long cove. Where we still don't know that long cove in fully vaccinated people what the consequences are whether it exists or not. How severe it is. There's a lot to learn there. But for now i sort of practice universal precaution we've got. We've got a pretty oriented house to running tests themselves. Which is which is great. And that's a pretty expensive family plan it is and we're fortunate to be able to afford it if we can find those tests and do them. Giant bulk amounts from like walmart or something. I don't because i don't like the idea of holding these tests some ordering like five five once a week and but it's gotten really hard like you know. Cvs and walgreens or entirely sold out. there's ebay sellers but they're charging two x markup and walmart occasionally has some supply so i found some supply last night so i ordered ahead for two weeks from now two weeks in advance. Basically what we need for the week but at some point. I'm afraid we're not gonna be able to order them. Because i think the supplies becoming more scarce. I fear john. Thanks for joining us. Great thank you guys..

"Was this narrative that tech people simply didn't understand the complexity of biology and we're doomed in this space. And i wondered like in that context. What's at stake with fairly success. Like our other people in health tech looking at the company as sort of bellwether for for the whole sector and it being taken more seriously. There are a lot of questions being asked right now. And they're always have been about whether or not tech is kind of too arrogant to iterating on some of the hardest problems facing biology. And i think that that narrative is useful insofar as it can answer more specific questions and right. Now it's kind of. It's kind of an easy thing to say. It's a phrase that a lot of people throw at this industry. Yes people are watching the development of this company. Which as i said before has two point five billion dollars As a sort of bellwether for for the space but But we have seen some change. Come from from the intersection of tuck and healthcare. And i think in the future. I mean i was just reading this Story by lisa's to win Over at the other day that was basically like should we retire the term digital health. Just call it health. And i think that's so apropos. Because healthcare is quickly just becoming an industry where it is at its essence both a product of technology and a product of of medical and biological innovations. One of the things. I thought was Read a lot of insight in your story was you and casey talked with former employees who Basically talked about feeling like they really couldn't focus on completing on things that they were working on and painted this picture of a company with a lot of irons in the fire or a lot of irons in different fires. Whatever way you want to take that metaphor Do you think there is hope or an expectation that that's going to change with. Some of these new hires that you wrote about like amy abernathy from the fda and just mentioned her. Because i know her part and parcel of this big push to commercialize also streamlining so. It's taking this really wide ranging list of moonshot of science projects of ambitious endeavors like the tri quarter for example and turning them into work a really workable solutions. And i do yeah. I talked to a handful of people. Many of whom mentioned this problem with just getting too overwhelming projects to really focus on any. And i think these days any of us can relate to that i have currently about twelve tabs open on my desktop and focusing on one of them at a time is very very difficult. So these these the top talent folks that you were talking about amy abernethy. Stephen gila a few others. Were brought on to try and streamline because that hasn't really happened fairly in the past there have been other efforts Right before This whole trump ordeal and the and the cova testing initiative. I was hearing that. There was a big push inside the company to try and just streamline its management to say to give people a clear list of priorities and tasks and one of the hardest things that i was hearing that they were struggling with was just saying no to projects was just killing projects when they clearly weren't going anywhere and so that's what i'm going to be watching to see if they can do but Yeah i mean tie stakes aaron. Thanks for joining us. Things for having me inspiration for podcasting topics comes from many places including multi tweet rants on twitter. I guess where else would you find a multi. Tweet rant one. Such thread posted wednesday caught our i. It was from healthcare investor bijon sal. He's a day logged onto twitter voices frustration with the current state of rapid cova testing here in the us and we got to the point with the first tweet in his thread writing quote the availability pricing and acceptance of home rapid adjutant tests sucks in the us. We all know that. But why is this. And by rapid antigen tests. He's referring to you the simple test kits that anyone can buy and use to determine if they've been infected with sars kobe to these tests deliver results in about fifteen minutes but as the us struggles with the delta wave of cova cases while trying to return kids to school and adults to work rapid cova testing seems to be forgotten or neglected. Part of the solution so bijon. Welcome to the podcast. Great to be here meg. So explain to is from your perspective. What is going on with rabbit coca testing here in the us. Or maybe what's not happening. Well certainly what's not happening is. There's just not enough availability whether it's online whether it's in actual stores. I know many many people like myself who go to cvs or walgreens and can't find them and it's a real challenge of school get started right now when this is the time when we all thought these tests would be available and i think it's probably many reasons why this is. What is we only have two or three approved vendors in the us for these rapid antigen tests versus european countries that have in some cases dozens of approved vendors by their health regulators. So that's a real head scratcher from my perspective and probably one of the root causes us to the lack of availability. China had the same experience a couple of weeks ago. Add come back from a trip. And i saw her feeling a little bad and so i thought oh my god kobe tonight. You know i. I went to get a rapid test. And i had to go to like four. Cvs's to find I guess i found the abbott test and you know it was expensive. It was like twenty thirty bucks for two tests. And then i've seen on twitter. Not and i've heard in europe by contrast like you know these tests are everywhere right. There like ubiquitous I know there was somebody who tweeted a photo of a a a supermarket in amsterdam where there was this big been of the same kind of rapid kobe tests. They were like you know the equivalent of like four or five. Us dollars it's shocking. And i've seen those photos from germany and other countries in europe and I think the government's there might be subsidizing. And i think that's actually what we need. You know. I went back and looked up the american rescue plan. We had forty eight billion dollars that us tax payer allocated towards improving testing. Now i don't know how that's been dispersed but i can tell you speaking from my small sample set of schools here in the d. c. area where i live. Those schools have no access to rapid engine. Testing forget subsidize just access and certainly the prices were paying if we.

"More like an academic medical center than a tech company. But after six years of some promising research. A few missed deadlines and a little organizational. Strife fairly is bearing down to produce actual products that actual people will actually use stats. Aaron bronwyn and casey ross reported an inside look at earlier this week and air joins us now to talk about it aaron. Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks for having me so earned for starters. What is fairly you know is it. Is it a tech. Company is a private research institution or a silicon valley vanity project. That is a great question atom it started. As a moonshot project known as google x. wherein at got essentially an unlimited budget and access to all of alphabets Alphabets resources to say. Hey you know. Here's some of the world's biggest science problems let's essentially throw the kitchen sink them and its first study was baseline which it launched with the aim of. I think it said at the time and this was back in two thousand fourteen creating a full picture of healthy human and so their aim was to collect reams and reams of genetic and molecular data. Base line is still ongoing. And it's also become sort of an amorphous word for a bunch of different initiatives fairly from. Its kobe testing initiative. I don't know if you recall but president trump Infamously made this rose garden speech. Where he talked about google's big testing initiative that was actually fairly to Clinical trials platform for study sponsors and advocates and To bring it back to this story. I mean the reason we wrote it is because biz because verily is facing a pressure test right now to to commercialize to prove that it can pull from its roots as a moonshot pull from its laundry list of science projects pull from its talent and the two point five billion dollars. It's raise and turn out. What is really a shortlist of market. Ready transformative medical products. So is your story. It's it's been kind of a long journey to this new focus on on creating products that would have customers. What's coming in the near term. Like like How will this actually play out. And how will we know whether they're succeeding in this kind of growing up initiative so right before this big push to commercialize the company was as i said. Essentially moon shotting is a. Is that a verb. Let's make it is one now. it was publishing papers. It was trying a bunch of ambitious things Trying to eradicate mosquitoes with this project called de bug. It was trying to make an easy to use miniature. Continuous glucose monitor for people with diabetes. And so near term with the company is really focused on when we talk with their executives. They basically said they're looking at three core products. They're looking at duo. Which is their initiative for people with diabetes. It's like a digital platform if you've so just you know giving them tips on what what meals to e went exercise Connects them with coaches and clinicians. That's essentially what fairly on do. Oh does its its second. Core product is this initiative called tara which is just a cloud base research platform for academic researchers and then It's third the third prong of that of that kind of stool that they're looking at is baseline. Which as i mentioned sense turned into this kind of Larger umbrella term for a bunch of different initiatives that it's doing but the the core one here is it's clinical trials platform so it's basically a platform that it's going to advertise to study sponsors advocates. And say you know. Here's here's a list of rough and ready tools that you can apply to your clinical trial. it's a way of trying to Allow more clinical trials to happen in a virtual is kind of setting one example of this that is not a clinical trial but is a study is the you know you may recall the apple watch steady all virtual Basically everybody did everything via telehealth and baseline is aiming to do more trials. More cities like that in a clinical trial setting so higher caliber lot harder to do. No-one's proved it can be done yet but baseline wants to do it. So why is now this sort of moment of truth for fairly when all of this pressure to deliver on the billions of dollars of investment. That's gone into. It is suddenly coming to ahead. Basically what we're seeing is. There's there's a push right now to commercialize. Because they've had six years they've had their time as a moonshot. They've had their time taking spaghetti at the wall. Approach and this is the moment to shine. Essentially they've they've hired all this top talent. They've hired people like amy abernethy who is at the fda and you know really started flat iron really made flattering into the company. That is today. They've hired stephen gillet who was formerly at starbucks In his now their cfo they really created a brand new c. suite here so it is time to you know. Put rubber to road and show that that these all of these spaghetti at the wall initiatives can be called essentially into a list of of market. Ready roddick's aaron. How important is it or maybe not at all or fairly to develop a successful tech hardware device type product versus something. That's kind of software or a. I mean i know. One of their one of their early initiatives was to try quarter Some kind of health detection device. And i'm a star trek fans. Aren't that those kind of cool and it never. It never materialized but they need something like that. Do they need some kind of like. Gee whiz tech device to to kind of be successful i would say yes definitively yes. Fellow trekkie over here also watched the development of that try quarter. Unfortunately that product has been shut down along with. It's very ambitious glucose detecting contact lens. Do you remember that one. I do remember that one. Yeah yeah so A lot of it's a lot of. It's you know. Hardware initiatives have floundered. Unfortunately but i would say that. It's very very critical. Perhaps for that very reason that they show that they can create a hardware device. That is not only transformative medical tool but can drive prophet and one example of a device that they've long been working on is high profile and would be really useful to plug and play with their on. Duo digital diabetes solution is the miniature continuous glucose monitor. They've been that they've been working on with decks calm. There jam would essentially be a miniature very easy to use one in a presentation at j. p. morgan last year Andy conrad fairly. Ceo said that it would be ready by the end of the year. It's not here yet. Were still waiting but he also said it might have odometer in. There might have some other really cool. Tech so yeah. I think we're all watching waiting to see them. Bring that product to the market. But as i said it is not here yet will kind of on that topic like going back to around twenty sixteen when at least externally it seemed like verily was was kind of sputtering and maybe there was a lot going on in their lacking some direction..

"So starting off by ticking. The box of discussing agile helm on this podcast. With all of the months of controversy consternation and the launching of investigations as to how this drug got approved. I think a lot of us were curious about will. Is anybody gonna be prescribing and administering this deeply controversial treatment for alzheimer's disease manufactured by biogen thursday morning biogen was interviewed or biden. Ceo michelle vanessa's rather appeared. At the morgan stanley. Healthcare conference to give us an update on the commercial uptake. and adam. what was the tone of that. Yeah you know from prior comment said bigest made. I mean we know that the launch is is been slow and i think what was interesting. Today was the coming. Probably provided more details. Chew the public to us about the extent of the slowness of the head. You home launch. And you know how it's really going at. Not as well as the company had hoped not as well as they anticipated. And certainly not as well as you know Investors had hoped it would be yes. So michelle donuts. I mean he had a. He blamed three main issues In reverse order they were that nobody really knows what the reimbursement is going to be for. This drug as medicare considers it. There's maybe insufficient infrastructure for administering infused therapy as agile ms. And then there is as he said misinformation about the data biogen has generated to support this approval. And that's where i mean. That's been a consistent tone by japan. Open letter. I think a couple months ago where the company seems to really feel like they are being misunderstood if not are the victims of a misinformation campaign on this treatment for alzheimer's disease which is anyone who tuned into this world. Listens to this podcast. Maybe at this point just lives in the united states knows. There are deep seated concerns about whether this drug actually works held by people who are not partisans in some kind of struggle or don't have an ax to grind against biogen necessarily but rather just happened to be practicing urologists and phd's yet my i sorta rolled when he said misinformation and i was waiting for him to blame shortsellers or us. I think we were blamed at one point for the media. Yeah exactly it's always the media's fault so pivoting to a very famous biotech company with a better recent fortunes than biogen meg. You spent the morning listening to modernise. Rnd presentation what did you learn from the presentation. Well you know. A lot of the presentation from derna has been trying to show the breadth of what they can do. I mean this is a company that now has a market valuation of one hundred eighty billion dollars in their only commercialized product as their covert nineteen vaccine and so it seems like attempt as it often is with madder not me to show that they are more than the kkob nineteen vaccine so in the vaccine space. I think one thing that's been garnering a lot of attention. This morning is that madonna has said they think they'll be first to market with a combo. Shot for cova kovin flu and rsvp So putting all those together in one shot. And i think protecting against four strains of the flue as all the seasonal vaccine's dual someday three but most do for Along with the rsv. And the cove. Ed antigens as well We don't know exactly when that will come. And they're essentially testing each individual. He now and we anticipate they said they expect to get the first seasonal flu data very soon. So that's gonna be just so interesting because it'll really give us the first peak of how well this could potentially apply in a different area this marinade technology and it's totally fascinating to me because one of their arguments for why they could be better. Is that marnie can be developed so fast that they could better tailor the flu vaccine to the circulating strains but that will require totally different communication with the w. h. o. which recommends which strains to put in the flu vaccines because essentially the who accommodates the growing and egg processes and the one you know protein-based vaccine that's already out there Which are much slower and so now this would require some checking in closer to win. Flu season would be with madonna to tell them. Okay well we actually had changed the strain. So it's gonna be really really fascinating to watch that development process. Hey meg i didn't listen to the presentation but it was all vaccines or did they talk about therapeutics at all. Now they also talked about therapeutics. That's a big part of the rest of the day and we're recording this thursday morning. They're still talking about a lot of their therapeutics as well. I'm currently looking at it. And they're talking about veg a and having the potential to improve cardiovascular outcomes so i mean this is a whole overview of all of their are indeed. It looks like a partner here with astrazeneca. So i'm really looking forward to getting to the qa part at the end of the day and just hearing what people are most interested in from what they've presented. And let's pivot to another favorite topic of our theranos damian you've been sorta paying close attention to the trial of elizabeth home that got got underway this week. Yeah that's right so we got opening statements On wednesday and they went. I think about as we expected the prosecutors laid out there very cut and dry case against elizabeth homes which you know obviously is recipes on the notion that there are no said it would do what she said. It could do It could not and thus those things were untrue. But what's key is that. They have to establish that when she said the untrue things she did so with the intent to defraud investors and patients and so that kind of framed the prosecutors to our opening statement which was like a sort of a buffet of potential defenses against this concept of intent reasons why she couldn't have formulated Intense so there was a large focus on. She really believed in the technology she still believes in the technology Which is kind of incredible That she tried her best as the has her attorney. You know pointed out reasonably. It's not a crime to fail in business. People do it all the time. It's only a crime if you intend etc. So his argument was she couldn't have intended because she really really was trying to be the best. Ceo of their knows that she could be and then they kind of glanced at it. Didn't really explore these notions that She wasn't really mentally capable of forming intent because of her relationship with her co-defendant An ex-boyfriend sonny bhawani who was not there to defend himself won't be there to defend himself so it was sort of. I guess like an appetizer. For what is probably going to be a long and oftentimes boring trial. One thing that the defense really did key in on was just how complicated This sort of blood testing is and can be so. There were all sorts of mentions of saitama tree and immunoassays and all this stuff that it seemed like there could be tactic at play to sort of bombard the jury with the complexity of this stuff in order to advance the notion of like this is really hard and they failed and anybody might fail and the woman before you who the government is painting as this great fraud was just someone who bit off more than she could chew with this stuff that hey none of us really understand. So that'll be an interesting kind of threat to watch the trial unfolds. Did did you guys see the photo of the the three elizabeth home fans with blonde hair dressed all in black waiting in line to get into the courthouse. All my gosh. I am so curious. I need so much. More information about these with the photo was was them from the back so he couldn't actually see what they look like. They were no martin. Shkreli impersonators at his trial. At least as far as i noticed if we went to tic tac. There's probably a whole like community of elizabeth home fans dressed on black before we wrap up our chatty cathy segment as we call it offline. And now you all know that we call it. I wanna give a shout out to life-size v t- Who on twitter asked us to talk about. Helen brands wells.

New endorsements give Biden boost for future primaries

"It's awesome United States with former vice president Joe Biden's White House campaign received a dramatic boost last night at what is seen as a crucial time in the United states his rivals Amy clover shell and P. puja jab fellow moderates who have now dropped out of this rates the race to be the next presidential candidate for the Democrats they've now endorse Joe Biden ahead of the crucial super Tuesday primaries seen as strategic this move to block fellow candidate Bernie Sanders I spoke only to sherry bebitch jeffe a a professor of the practice of public policy communication at the university of southern California and political analyst about these recent developments so who's out who's in and what's the strategy senator Amy clover shore of Montana Beijo overwork objections and mayor Pete moody judge and each one of those three have announced that they are endorsing Joe Biden watching this Donna Xing comeback for Joe Biden he seemed to have one in every category in South Carolina and this momentum of support has been growing yes I think it's it's sort of a coalition of many factors not the least of which is that the moderate wing of the Democratic Party alder weighing of the Democratic Party realized that very Sanders who isn't really a Democrat he is a democratic socialist he is an independent senator looked like that Bernie was gonna run away with the nomination and there was a great nervousness on the part of the party elders that he would lose to Donald Trump this support to was also about a Mike Bloomberg who seem to have a quite a rocky start too late to come up in the campaign trail and not doing really well and he's debates it is quite it just doing what he is also under attack by criminal justice reformers by black lives matter by other minority groups for a program called stop and frisk he's also been a jacked for shall we say not being supportive of women let's pick up on that point about black voters because no other candidate except Joe Biden has received the sort of endorsement that is needed from the African American so there is another category where he's doing incredibly well exactly the first two elections the Iowa caucuses in New Hampshire and New Hampshire primary or fly in stages population is at least ninety percent white South Carolina gave a boost to Joe Biden partially because sixty percent of the electorate was African American the endorsement of an icon in black politics a congressman in black politics led to black voters to focus on by him and again looking ahead to stupid shoes day this is the final chance to help Joe Biden all these endorsements for his much needed support but we still have in the race Mike Bloomberg and we have Elizabeth Warren let me say this about Michael Bloomberg I believe he's pushing half a billion dollars in expenditures and he has nothing to show for it at this point and he looks weak in the big super Tuesday states the debate is when will he decide he must get out of the race remember he got into the race because he said that Biden was too weak and he couldn't overcome Bernie Sanders and that would mean that the Democrats would lose to Donald Trump well that argument doesn't fly anymore there are Democrats who just complain to me just think with that money might have done Bloomberg put it in in other races which is an interesting and analysis so what happens after Tuesday if that Bijan overtakes Bloomberg could we see Michael Bloomberg getting behind Joe Biden to question that question needs to be asked of Michael Bloomberg he said two things one quote I'm in it to win it and quote but that was well before Joe Biden started lining up the significant endorsements Bloomberg has said time and time again no matter who the democratic nominee is I will support him or her and that means money ID also said that he would use his money to help Democrats up and down the ballot but is one of my friends pointed out today Michael Bloomberg has an ego as big as San Francisco it's going to be very hard for him to leave the stage yes and I was talking to the professor there who was giving us an update as to who is slowly becoming the front runner in that race in the

"The sun officially transitions into a new sign of the zodiac zodiac at thirty three degrees concept well known long before Christianity all the pyramids in the world are on the thirty third parallel in addition there are plenty of other known well known thirty threes in a lot of histories the triple three Bijan triplets city awareness trouble numbers is a color ready to Carl young's principal synchronicity as uncanny tendency to cluster seemingly unrelated facts in a strange meaningful patterns we're doing tonight with the Superbowl at Alice's and for some reason yet undetermined the three eighty operates in the human unconscious and ordering principle which manifests itself through triplicate number patterns everything happens in threes you were the old saying well that's because a virgin triplets city we always see that three people die three accidents three district three calamities all these things are our collective unconscious response to this and sometimes chaotic synchronous these manifesting great numbers after the fact and therefore we dig deep enough and we may find the cases many sinister synchronous these are associated with threes like be be there's a try in god as the track quite true the Trinity and of course there is the devil the false prophet and the anti Christ so that can also be seen as some satanic type of of thought process but what happened at the Superbowl in the performance the halftime show was not satanic in the sense that it was actually more of a pagan ancient ritual bid to secure and both did she care in jail performed that was the beginning of the Superbowl halftime show it we see secure wearing red she's standing on a stage that is in effect the magic circle much of what we talked about earlier in this magic circles fertility ritual on able which is the date of the Syro the week of the civil celebration of some of what is it that the time before spring and so she's the lady in red symbolic of the **** of Babylon she's called the red goddess of you read the book of the law by Alister Crowley it says that she represents the female sexual impulse and liberated woman in the creed of the gnostic mass she's also identified with Mother Earth inner fertile sense as we were saying earlier the provocative dancing the secure performed as part of the fertility rite and ritual in probably believed that Babylon had an earthly aspect in the form of a spiritual office which could be filled by actual women usually as a counterpart to his own identification as to make a theory on which of course the great beast whose duty is then to manifest the energies of the current in a chorus so to give birth to the children of the beast or to honor the beast's image is what probably thought the woman's job in the red the woman in red would do so it should care of course is the de facto venous she's in the magic circle stage it's ritual invocation she puts the not to the cross you have to that female performers in wicked this is central to the ritual were come inside creases enters a trance and is my guest Ryan gable says we it's much like the oracle of Delphi in Greek myth and it pulls the triple goddess card and here we are with Ryan gable my guest tonight on ground zero so she if you know the thing that really cute me was when she took the role open nodded her wrists and at first I thought it was the the knot of love or at the may sonic not I'm sure a lot of people see it is a site not but really it was said that the triple goddess Brigid day of for the festival of of the dance and the fertility dance as what are some of the other aspects you saw some of the esoteric aspects you saw during the Superbowl well I think we can start with what you mentioned at the end of the last segment about the palindrome which is really powerful because when you can read a word both ways and has the same pronunciation the same meaning then in magical operations it's the intention and that is the difference between white and black magic the direction of the spell so when we write in cursive we cast a curse and when we spell something with letters which are symbols we cast a spell if you use something like abracadabra it reduces and that reduction usually used in health is set to dissipate diseases so if you have something that works reverse and Ford whether it's black magic or white magic forward or backwards if you look at if you look at black magic usually contracts with the devil art are said to have been signed like urban Granger for example in blood and the operators blood and it said to be signed and written backwards in Latin so it's the reverse of the inversion just like L. I. V. E. becomes E. V. I. L. evil the inversion of life so to have a have a palindrome we have a link to Janice the end of January Janice is the Roman god of two heads who sees in both directions the previous year and the new year it's kind of like the yin and Yang and the gap yum and so this brings together the unification of opposites which is so important and so powerful in that of the Trinity the made a mother crown or the father the son and the holy ghost the Christian Trinity all those elements collide are I believe represented at this event just like a lot of other major events like this and when you look at the performance in particular of Jennifer Lopez this stage opens up with these people that come up to a pole she's on the pole she starts looks like she's pole dancing almost but what that represents is the mole not the circle with the dot in alchemical symbol of the sun behind it are six other pillars most people see where I'm going with this probably the seven days of creation the seven light the seven pillars that seven Heller represents the sun because of the mall not so when she puts her arms out on that seven pillar she becomes crucified and in fact if you go back to some of the earliest mythologies it's not actually a man whose crucified as a savior it's a woman in the Japanese mess of on a terrace too it's a woman who is put into the tomb for three days and then she's resurrected and she brings life back to the world and that was all very central act this sexual fertility ritual what I call the drawing down of the moon quite this sounds a lot like Persephone story the Greek goddess Persephone to Wade into the underworld of Hades and put her into the underworld and and what was what was it was mercury worked with the staff yeah good to go eight which is across the the the the snake on the the snake on the pole at the the same of the town whose symbol or the symbol of course Moses said that he put the serpent on the on the pole which was a an element of health and healing and he said if you look upon the steak on the pole and if you look at the speck on the pole the snake on the poll is the could you sis right like what you see in most hospitals in an ambulance is you see the could use is what it is what it is is is is that once again and I want to give us a Tracy Twyman thing that we did funny word invoking Tracy because she was the one that brought us as a church to light and one of the reasons that people who did that we look at you know money grows on them tree of good and evil and she shows that if you look at the snake bit so winding around the pole it brings health and happiness and that sexual fertility which is again the woman on the pole represents the steak on the pole which represents the healing process of the female divine feminine and what's interesting if you look at the dollar sign it too is a coiled snake on a pole bringing riches and wealth and all that stuff yeah it's actually basically up Marvin Gaye song sexual healing right and then it's off the the the the rod or the one that's clypeus born it's none of the want of medicine with the staff and the single serpent slithering up the which also references the number thirty three because of the X. by columns missed the human spinal in the back yep because the lady yeah but the fact exactly right I mean that's it it's just amazing how you know it all comes together like that the the yin Yang the IBM and if you look at the colors like for example the black and white colors the men were wearing dresses that were black and white you know they're wearing skirts were black and white the girls were wearing half read in half flash of surrounding themselves with Shakira and what side is you look at the magic circle would secure was taking that not to making the cross of Bridget it was interesting because the fire came up from the underworld it was this on the stage you see fire coming up which is standing in the middle of the of the fires and come up and once again you go to the mall and odd you go to there were eight polls they were being user was the one that she was on in the beginning that there's one she used to she formed across within there were six other polls they were in in the circle and all the women there were doing the same pose but then we go back to the axis moon D. which of course of the eight pillars that hold heaven and hell in place and and so is she once again showed herself as the crucified goddess which is you know it was just sold stark in an elemental to me it just made me feel a little uncomfortable because I knew how this was pushing this idea to switch the idea I don't think all I I think a lot of people it was lost abilities really the engine festivals the girls are parade around the goddess and then the guys would be surrounded by what are called straw boy and the strawberries were were basically androgynous boys but they represented block wealth and health and so then they use the not to express the cosmic union and the dancers were the straw boys and of course at once back to the MOD at in the may pole is.

How does a pet get cloned?

"Cloning how does that get cloned so the very first step if you are thinking you might potentially you want to call on your pet Sunday that first step is our genetic preservation service and what that involves is a veterinarian taking a few small skin biopsy samples from your pets and if you're planning in advance and it is best to have these biopsies done while the cat is still alive and healthy so if you're planning in advance it's best to order I biopsy kit and we can ship this biopsy can overnight to the veterinarian or to the client and this biopsy kit has everything that the veterinarian needs to take the samples and to ship them to us at the appropriate temperature so it's just a small four millimeter punch biopsy at the skin so very simple every veterinarian the world is that a punch biopsy before so very easy to do it can be done with the local anesthesia or it can be done under general anesthesia if you are planning in advance in the veterinary purse first to do a general anesthesia then you might consider having this done in conjunction with a dental cleaning something like that where the the dog is already under anesthesia so we have a lot of clients that she used to do it at that time so the the vet takes a biopsy samples very small and very minimally invasive or the pet and would like to have anywhere from to try by an overnight with the return and ex label that included in from these tissues are they going to sell culture and we will grow millions of cells that contain that had DNA and the cells will ultimately be the starting point where the cloning process that is absolutely amazing it really sounds like Jurassic Park so hope is it possible to do Jurassic Park dinosaurs are we just doing cats and dogs I should ask what species can be cloned so there are quite a few species clones Bijan pets was originally part of the company that cloned livestock so cattle pigs goats and sheep have been cloned over the past seventeen years and when we began and by Jim Henson equine we now just clone dogs cats and horses so those are the three species that we clone and weeping cloning courses for about seventeen years and dogs and cats for about almost four years and it's it's going very well the cloning is just growing and growing the more people find out about this and then it's a possibility it's really a growing field with cloning I think a lot of people have concerns and I had a lot of questions because it's not as a topic that was really broached when I was in veterinary school so with cloning I know that Dolly the sheep seem to be healthy land a shorter lifespan than a typical sheep of that particular breed what happens for a dog and a cat is there or horse is there a lifespan basically the same physical issues they have can a brief for instance yes all very good questions so in going back to Dolly the sheep the technique that we use for cloning is essentially very much the same as what was used for Dolly many years ago and it is technically called somatic cell nuclear transfer or S. T. and T. so a somatic cell is any cell in the body that's anything other than a sperm or an egg and for dogs and cats and horses the somatic cells all these are what we grow in the culture from the skin biopsies taken from the pet so that somatic cell is that source at the beginning so that process is essentially the same and how the embryo is made and all of the species is how we use that egg from a donor animal and we removed the nucleus of that egg and we transfer in one of the somatic cells from the skin sample and these agonist cell are now fused together in an embryo starts to grow and then we'll transfer that embryo into the surrogate animal for dogs and cats they're a little bit different than the worst because dogs and cats are litter bearing species so we do transfer multiple embryos into that surrogate mom so is there is that chance that there could be twins or triplets said usually small number of puppies or kittens in the later but that is a chance and usually the clients will take as many as are born in the letter and it's just the one let me go back to your question about the longevity of these animals so Dolly did live a shorter lifespan than normal and so there was speculation at the time twenty two years ago that this was because she was a clone animal there's been a lot of research done on cloned animals and stating their longevity and their health over the years and cloned animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan which is really refreshing for a lot of these pet owners because unfortunately Dolly kind of got a bad rap and because she did let us our lives so it is you know it's the sort of the myths surrounding cloning that cloned animals live a shorter lifespan than an average animal and that's simply not true so cloning animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan and should be just as healthy as the original animal now one question that we do get quite often is let's say you know the the original all dog developed cancer will the cloned dog develop cancer great yes that's comes right on it and the answer is it depends on the cause of that cancer so which we don't veterinarians don't usually no it's not really definitive what the causes of most cancers are but if it was something that was shown to be genetically linked type of disease or illness the net cloned animal is going to have those same genes so that same potential to develop that disease at some point in its life it's not automatically going to develop that disease but that potential is there so sometimes the client can know to watch out for symptoms they may see them earlier and your because they're looking a little more closely for them where there may be some diagnostics that can be done on the Pat to to make sure that this does not developing that disease that the original Pat may have had that should have just the same longevity and health status as the original animal so genetic counseling especially the situation like that because you say are and I have a golden retriever and this golden retriever died of a type of cancer and then she'll star coma but this is just the best dog in the entire world so I want another one just like Goldie and then there is that chance because of the genetic predisposition that the next at could have cancer also said that yes I think it's very important so Mylene you were talking about this genetic preservation that can go on and you'll sometimes have a cloned animal in Sir get that you may have three or four are they obligated to take all the pattern that later and if not what do you do with the other pets and I'm sure people are thinking how many cats and dogs and horses do they have to act to circuits so our litter sizes are usually small just one or two maybe three and puppies or kittens and the letter we did have some larger sizes we had up to five puppies in a litter and this is sort of earlier on in the cloning process when we were at yeah and it's fine tuning in the number of embryos that go into the store get to get the number of puppies or kittens that we're hoping for and most clients will only want just one or maybe two so yeah I can understand work five is a lot to handle so he we do sort of try to treat that but you never know it's kind of like IVF you may end up with twins or triplets and it's just a little bit of a risk that may be there I would say most clients if there are three parties let's say most clients are going to say yes I want every single copy that morning that's completely understandable I know I would end up actually I have my dogs those prisoners I've already talked to my family and that's it okay on my dog Zeus and there's three puppies I'm gonna take one and again my brother you'll take one right and my mother worked I'm gonna give you that so it within my family so I can keep an eye on them and I and that's what most clients will choose to do is is a date they may not keep every single one of them somewhere else but if there's more than they can really take care of it solely on three copies as a lot then they may Debbie does that now I have the claim is not obligated to you take every every cut your kitten that's born with the cloning agreement and they are guaranteed at least one healthy puppy or kitten they're not obligated to take any extra ones there's of course no additional fees for those extra puppies or kittens so in we've had a couple clients that have have said you know I can only take two can you find a good home for these other you know we do have the other ones and we've done that we haven't really get adoption program in the cases that we've done that before those copies of actually been adopted out to you our own employees so it makes it really nice because the the clients can keep tabs on those and they know that the copies went to again how so you have the genetic preservation I want to have the biopsies done small really not painful I agree with you doing little four millimeter biopsies with local anesthesia is so simple you can plan have that preserved how long can you preserve it so if somebody says you know this is really good dog I'm not really sure if I want to do this what's going to be going on later on my life how long can that genetic material be stored and how is it stored I mean I would say most of our clients are are wanting to just preserve the cells are now and it cost is quite a lot where the cloning itself so those clients are just holding on to that DNA we preserve the cells the cells and the cell culture that we do it takes about two to four weeks to complete the culture and then these cells are placed in a crowd files with a crow protected media and they're stored in liquid nitrogen tanks in the cells can be kept stored essentially for ever for decades and we have clients that have stored cells S. for seventeen years and we've actually called a couple of dogs in at least one cat who sells were stored for seventeen years and then they they contest that later on so it's really amazing so essentially forever the cells can be stored there is an annual storage fee for storing cells so they the initial cost of the genetic preservation in sixteen hundred dollars and that includes culturing the cells in the biopsy kit shipment to and from the veterinarian and that also includes the first year of self storage after the first year the annual storage fee is a hundred and fifty dollars per year in the great thing about this is all of the up front fees that the client pays for the preservation and any subsequent storage fees these all get combine an addict gather and then when they decide to clone down the road everything that they've paid to date gets applied toward the cloning so long term clients really like that so I think this is a fascinating way that you're doing this Mullane where you are saving the cells your happiness fee but then you're not being hit with additional fees you know way on top of that because you're paying for a little bit little all the way along that's great now again you are saving the cells it's not embryos because oftentimes we hear about in human medicine where they're saving this genetic material but you're actually saving embryos is that correct that's right for the genetic preservation work we haven't created the embryos just yet they're actually for pets there is not been a technique developed to be able to freeze embryos we can do that and horses so because we've been cloning horses for so long we have improved the technique and initially there was when we first started doing this there was no process available to successfully resent all embryos for horses but now we've developed these techniques we have some of the top cloning scientist in the world on staff your just amazing and so for horses that is our standard thing that we do with the cloning is we we create the cloned embryos and then they are frozen and then they can be shipped and in transferred into their reset mayor at that point but for dog and cat it has to be a fresh embryo so we don't create embryos just yet we just up from genetic preservation we're just simply producing the

"Radio. You're Jay talking. We're live midnight to five I'm fighting back. I know coffee headache. But we do press on still other than that. I'm feeling pretty good Keith and Randolph. Let's talk to Keith. And see what is on his mind and open, Bradley good. Good. I just want to ask one question about probably about three top. Oh, I was on the road. I was I couldn't talk, and I just I just now being able to talk. Hey, make subject of on a subject of or whatnot. I was wondering can you? Tell me one good reason why should convert to organic Bijan ISM. Well, you know, I used to be all about organic for a while. And now, I'm not so much because I I don't really trust it. I don't know. I wanted to get into organic because I don't like pesticides. And you know, the I don't trust the big chemical companies. I don't trust. I just don't want pesticides on my food. So that's what I was hoping to avoid with organic. But then I'm told that organic still uses pesticides. So that bums me out. And then I'm told that those pesticides are less harmful. And and sometimes they can even be like. One insect that eats another insect is the pesticide. I guess so I don't know what to think organic. I'm not gonna have. I'm not pressuring anybody to do that. As far as not eating meat. Well, what I was talking about before was simply eating trying to not to eat salt and sugar and all that stuff. But when it comes to me. Tunnel VJ. Right. So I wasn't talking about that tonight. But if you want I can tell you that if you're a person, Well, I I guess red meat is associated with cancer. I guess too much of it. That's what I hear. But maybe you don't care about that. I know it tastes good. But for me, I just figure if I as a human. Responsible custodian of our planet if I can be just as healthy without killing animals, then it's probably my duty to do it. If I need to be. I had a nutritionist. Shane espoused regionalism as a total religion spouting at it. And she wanted me to convert to re re to Beijing. Skander up and down. And she says she's talking about regionalism as a religion. And I looked at her up and down and I saw leather shoes. And I saw leather belt, and I said you hypocrite, why do you call it? Why do you say I should convert to beaches here you are wearing leather shoes? Leather belt, you're fired. Or maybe wanna see you again. She probably thought that it's healthier for you. That's probably the reason she may not have been doing humanitarian reasons she may have been doing it out of liquor. Convert to it like a religion or something maybe she was doing it because she felt it was healthier. Maybe it was not about humanitarian. Of course, she also could have been total hypocrite her she'd go to what she could have been a hypocrite as you say if she wanted you to be vegan because it was wrong to kill animals, and she has leather shoes. And she is in fact, a hypocrite if she just tells you to be a vegan because it's better for you. And she wears leather shoes, and she's not a hypocrite. But it sounds like you're not gonna do it. What were the reasons she gave for doing it? She said, well, you know, you know, any and she says, well, you know, you need to you need to you need to get away from anything animal you need to get away from anything any anything. Yeah. Animal. He's he's getting away from anything animal products. You need to get away from anything milk or.
