I saw mathurin urine on the floor yelling at nurses refusing to eat his food that owned the foot on the floor. Yelling out names to the the staff. He had no control over himself or the whole situation. Thought matt might be institutionalized. We're gonna assign the state to care for him. I didn't want that to happen. That will be very very devastating. And i knew they were going that way so i feel like i needed to be his voice. Alesia does something that. She's never really done before. She goes to the civilian psychiatrist at the hospital. I told her. I'm going to bring facts in this year. This happened in that year. That happened in for two hours.

But she discovered he also had a brain injury and ptsd and other behavior that she couldn't explain patterns forgetfulness and anger and violence and then he started being violent toward her. She didn't know what she was still doing there. I wonder that so many times. Why am i here. Why am i still here lov. Yes i loved him. Also the more i got to know him. The more i got to have the feeling of quayle's is going to do what i do. He needs some one here. Alesia felt a duty to stay with matt. Which is not unusual for people in an abusive relationship but the duty she felt was not just to him or to the relationship or to their families. She also felt a duty to her country. She by staying is making good on a promise. The rest of us made to matt when he signed up. We have signed off on the laws that say we will take care of him afterwards. That's quil lawrence. Npr's vets responded and my co host on her home front series. Now i wanna townhall waving the flag here but we're all on the hook for this. This is something that we have promised to do the care that the us government has promised to give veterans after they come. Home should not require the spouse or loved one of a veteran to stay in a dangerous situation but at least it was not sure what else to do. It's easy to just look at it and say oh. Just get out of there. The problem with this is that no one's saying get out of there. We'll make sure he's taken care of so. Why is that. We're was the department of veterans affairs and all this. Today we put that question to the. Va on the third and final chapter of ems story. Here's quill was stuck. What makes a woman with the man who was abusive and is choking you out.

An explosion in iraq left him blind on completely blind i saw from. Tbi traumatic brain injury. So i i didn't know what the hell was going on for one day to the next after he left the army. He ends up working at his nonprofit. That helps injured veterans. Get their independence. And that's how he ends up meeting matt lammers. He was hit by a bomb. I was hit by a bomb. He lost three limbs. I lost my eyes and suffered some other massive severe injuries when he learned that matt also had a brain injury and ptsd and had struggled with addiction o. m. g.

He flew out to tucson to personally. Take mad to that program and for at least you. This visit met a lot sergeant. Major a costa. He came to tucson in. Remember him coming to see us in trying to get mad. He didn't even bring his service dog. He's guide dog to me. Meant meant so much that he cares so much about us.

One hundred percent about everything happened to to that point he asked you have a phone with you and i say yes. He says look up secondary. Ptsd just google it and read it out loud. So i did that.

The Bourne Identity (2002)
"Hey everybody welcome to another prestige podcasts. Where we perhaps are stretching the definition of prestige I think so. I think this is a prestigious action film anyway. The bourne identity. This is a two thousand two movie directed by doug liman who you might recognize director of swingers. Mrs smith jumper edge of tomorrow american-made. He's the son of a bitch. Made us watch american made. We got all hyped up tom. Cruise in and mister bourne identity in its turns out that was very aggressively average flick. But but he's he's made a couple of good action movies as you can see here. After this paul greengrass over and helmed the rest of the borne trilogy is based on a screenplay written by tony gilroy who you might recognize as the screenwriter of rogue. One devil's advocate. Literally every jason bourne film also wrote and directed michael clayton and william blake. Herron who. I don't even know why his credit for this like only got one other movie credits he's credit created as the co writer. So i guess he did stuff here. He came into some rewrites. Because a studio like lots of this is a. I had no idea. This is such a troubled film making process. They're much butting heads. We'll we'll get to that. I'm sure is based on the bourne identity by one robert ludlum. If you're a. Tom clancy fan. You know. absolute thought robert ludlum is if you're a kid growing up in eighties. Ninety nineties like books The airport bookstores were stuffed full of his political thrillers. Back for their stuff. Full john grisham or after adding it. Yeah it's like. It's like john grisham. Tom clancy and and Ludlum all going for that hyper. Masculine market stars matt damon of course as jason bourne Frank potenza bra who you might recognize from run. Lola run is awesome.

Two Doses, Two Different Vaccines: Does It Work?
"And only one of the questions. What we've had most regularly. The last few months is whether you can have one divisive one vaccine Today and then when it's time for a second is whether you can have different vaccine and we've said before that we didn't have much evidence to back it up but we do have at least a little bit of evidence about what happens if people are given one dice of say astrazeneca and the second is yes and just the context here we know from other vaccines by mixing brands. You do get an effective response and sometimes even better response than you do by using the same brand twice around and what. This is a british trial which people have been waiting eagerly for and this is one of their first results is more to come and what they loot tat was the antibody response and also some side effects and what they found was that you got enhanced antibody response to actually go to bigger antibody response by mixing the vaccines with originally and i think it was mostly astro followed by pfizer. And and it was. I think the twelve weeks apart and they got a much more. Robust antibody response by mixing vaccines. The interesting thing was that along with the more robust antibody response more side effects. In other words you feeling crap and there was more people that have had that favor that you might get off to vaccination and also just pain at the injection site as well. Yup which is just your immune system is called reactor agenda city. You don't wanna feel craft vaccine and you wouldn't wanna put people off by thinking they they're gonna feel bad but is that maybe a signal that they're getting a better immune response sending single. You're getting an immune response whether it's a better. Immune response is unclear but there are probably over a large population robin individuals. If you averaged it out you probably average out a slightly better response for people who are getting more of a reaction and it's borne out by this that you getting more of an antibody response than on average overall getting more of a reaction. But i suspect that doesn't tie down to individuals that well
Teens, Tech and Mental Health: Oxford Study Finds No Link
"Study finds. This is a thirty year study from oxford university. Thirty years four hundred thirty thousand teenagers from the united states and the uk. Answering questionnaires since nineteen ninety-one. Now they're you know when you read about scientific studies you got to consider the methodology and everything. I mean these. These were self reporting teens but the question was designed to detect indicators for depression emotional problems. What they wanted to know is does watching. Tv using social media living on the screen on the device. Does it cause mental health issues. But he thinks thirty years. Four hundred thirty thousand teens. That's a pretty good study. Pretty good samples sample size so they call a longitudinal. No longitudinal study. The researchers said. There's no link between the time teens. Spend on tech devices and mental health problems. No link there are other reasons. Kids might not feel good There might be a link between pandemic corentin and depression but not those devices The researchers said the commonly used argument that social media platforms and devices are harmful to. Adolescence is not is not not borne out by the data and research. available professor. andy. Presents probes bliss. A senior was bolt sqi. I think i got that right. Visible sqi senior author of the study. Says it's too early to make any firm conclusions on the relationship between teen tech us and mental health and certainly way too soon to be making policy or regulation. So they tried. They tried to find a link and they couldn't do it.
Singleness: Burden and Gift
"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.
Biden says the U.S. on "war footing" to beat the virus
"A moment like never seen before. This was a victorious moment in this presidency fifty days in giant legislative achievement. The president addresses the nation. But he begins with the sadness of what we've lost. He delivers optimism for where we can get to but cautions us about the fear we have to maintain of hold our own personal health In in a safe space a space as we move forward through this corona virus plague It was an amazing range of notes. That that he was delivering their All in this continued effort to keep his presidency on. Course keep us on course in dealing with this virus. Yeah that's right lawrence. I think You know i i. People underestimate joe biden at their peril. I think and i think that that is part of what this first fifty days of the administration has shown just as his campaign showed the same thing he comes. He has extraordinary He's not a politician. Who's he's a five tool player. He doesn't have all the skills but the skills he has and the temperament he has or just about perfect built for this moment and his mastery of the legislative process his personal experience everything that people understand about his acquaintance. His deep sad acquaintance with profound grief the empathy that's borne out in him. That's brought out in him and the fact that i think he understood something that donald trump never understood. Which was that. The country wants to be called to sacrifice. Wants this this notion of striking that tone again even now as it seems like victory is maybe incite with the crowbar by saying again that i want to have the country on a war footing. It was the one time in all of twenty twenty. The donald trump was did well on kobe for about three days when he said he wanted to be a wartime president. And i think biden understands that you cannot give up this fight too soon. That victory has to be total and that tempered measured cautious optimism and realism as he kept coming back again tonight telling people the truth even if the truth is not happy talk that that is the path and the path that will keep him where he is right now which is an extraordinary position of political strength.
Should You Let People 'Pick Your Brain'?
"Movement i guess if you will wear. He like you. Stop asking people to pick their brain. Disrespectful it's entitled It's rude that you know. People have spent a lot of time and energy on whatever their craft or whatever it is and you shouldn't ask anyone for free information. Basically i see it a lot that you know so i have mixed feelings about how i feel about that sentiment so i just wanted to. When i saw that i was looking going to see what has mandy think about like when people quote unquote want to pick your brain. Do you feel like you like get out of here. Like i'm not telling you nothin' i'm not gonna lie. Maybe at a certain age and step in my career. I might have been but that would have been purely borne out of insecurity and also fear and also you know it's if we're really serious about creating more inclusion At all levels you know. Generational wealth building generational wealth in black and brown households giving people access to power and knowledge and for me. I'm really passionate about you. Know talking to people about their career and how to navigate their careers and and move through the quote unquote corporate world. Or whatever if we're really serious about that we. We have to acknowledge that the way that it's been done which it has been very closed off to us in terms of knowledge. How things get done. How do you become an executive or get to a board seat. How how does this happen. That information has been held back from us once. I almost feel like once you gain knowledge in order to really break the system. We know we need to stop playing by their games. Once we get there so my whole thing is once. I get in a room and i gained knowledge. I wish people would ask me. Like what are you know. Because i would be willing to share it and i think you know why said fear and an insecurity might have helped me back in the past is when you're the only one you might be a little scared it's like it's an and they want you to feel this way too. I think they being like you know the system. It's better for them. If we're not talking and sharing information right that's why they didn't teach how to read. Access to knowledge is the key to equality and yet we. I just i feel personally that in my space. If you ever wanna pick my brain. It's pickle
Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

The President's picture
"Now back on election night in two thousand eight. I was sitting on the couch watching the news. My career in photojournalism at morphed into a career shooting weddings. Not because. I really wanted that because it paid money. Such is life and so there. I was sitting on that couch. Not working the most historical election night of my life. The crowd is reaching a million in grant park. The anchor said in washington. Tens of thousands of people are gathered at the white house. Some tv journalist explained breathlessly. And i couldn't take it anymore. I looked at the clock. It was eleven. I gotta go. I said to man where she replied. No i gotta go make a picture of something and so a jumped into my car and sped down a sleepy military road. And then i loved myself. Where would i find a parking spot near the white house. Isn't it funny. How logistics can be such a buzzkill aloft. Again you idiot. Forget the white house. Go to the lincoln. Martin luther king marian anderson. I have a dream. I figured there'd be thousands of people just like the white house was a ton of the twenty. Six as i walked up at tv crew was walking away. Nothing to see here. My fellow agenda said to me. Helpfully barack obama's speech from bronco was coming through the radio. My fellow citizens. I stand here today humbled by the task before us. Grateful for the trust. You've bestowed mind-mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I felt lanka wounded into a candid camera prank twenty-six very quiet people who gathered around a single transistor radio in the steady drizzle. Not even a mile from where tens of thousands of people were screaming. Their heads off. It was around midnight and was very dark in the rain was fogging things up on my camera. But i'm made some pictures because that's what we journalists do the next morning at six. Am i emailed gone you at the new york times. I think. I wrote something like election night. Lincoln memorial twenty six people in rain in the subject filled to get his attention. Five minutes later. My phone rang. i chuckled. The photo ran the size of a stamp on the op-ed page of the times. The next day better than nothing. I thought then some woman named connie email me i say some woman comically because i didn't know her at the time she has since become a dear friend but back in two thousand and eight two days. After the election of barack obama. She was just columnist. I didn't know saying she wanted to write a story about my picture and she was on deadline so i called her back and some guy named sherritt answered the phone detecting trend here. Connie really needs to talk to you but she's just getting out show. Just hang on a few moments. She'll be here so i talked to share it for five minutes chatting about the election and everything and having no idea i was talking to a united states senator email. My sister woman named connie schultz interview today connie schultz. I love her. She's on msnbc all the time you dingo and connie wrote beautiful column. Everyone was excited for me. The grainy photo of the twenty-six folks in the dark and the rain that i shot for no publication in particular was suddenly gaining traction. My neighbor republican joe crowley loved it. He asked me if he could give some to his colleagues. I made copies. Joe gave them to members of the congressional black caucus he also brought one to the white house event and gave it to the president and that photo got framed and hung outside the president's study for eight years and that's where this story should end except that in two thousand sixteen after donald trump was elected. The new president-elect was invited for white house to by president. Obama and my old friend pete souza took a photo of that man. Sizing up the president's study. Will you see in. The photo is his orange hair as he pokes his head in and his hands on the wall right next to my framed photo. Pete's picture is awesome and that's where this story ends except for today because i've been getting e mail after e mail from people who've gotten their hands on president obama's memoir and in his memoir. He says that my photograph the slightly boring one of twenty six people standing in the rain is his favorite photo from his election night. His what president obama rights. But i worry the my memories of that night night so much else has happened these past twelve years a shady by the images that i've seen the footage of our family walking across the stage the photographs the crowds and lights and magnificent backdrops as beautiful as they are. They don't always match the lived experience in fact my favorite photograph from that nice isn't a drum park toll rather it's the one i received later as a gift. The photograph the lincoln memorial taken. As i was giving my speech. It shows a small gathering of people on the stairs that's is obscured by the dot is behind them. The giant figure shining brightly. Here face craggy is is slightly downcast. They're listening to the radio. I am told quietly contemplating who we are as people. And the ark of this thing. We call
NASA's ECOSTRESS Takes Surface Temperature Around California Fires
"Nasa zico stress mission answers questions about agricultural vulnerability created by water availability to do that the ecosystem space-borne thermal radiometer experiment on space station accurately measures the temperature of plants plants regulate their temperature by releasing water through tiny pores on their leaves if they have sufficient water they maintain their temperature if there is insufficient water their temperatures rise aeko stress produces the most detailed temperature images of the surface ever acquired from space and the resolution is so acute temperature measurements can be made of an individual farmers field now researchers are using the land surface images to assess the wildfires that are burning across the us concentrated areas with surface temperatures higher than three hundred seventy five degrees.

Wednesday 23 December
"Later today lufthansa cargo flight from frankfurt will touchdown doncaster sheffield airport bringing of food supplies to forestall shortages caused by the recent severing of land and sea trade routes between the uk and europe with jew recognition that this is more to do with covid nineteen than brexit. There is something piquant about britain entering the last week of its transition period reliance on a reverse of the berlin airlift. The uk's present difficulties due to a new and highly infectious variant of covid nineteen heavily concentrated in london and the southeast on joined with more by monaco. Twenty fours health and science correspondent dr. Chris chris this or something like to be expected because all viruses mutate. Don't they indeed covid nineteen already has once or twice at least before andrew say actually the uk's victim of its own success in this because we do as jones san accurately said have a world class in fact one of the best in the world screening systems set up to detect precisely this sort of thing. It's called coke. Uk their job is to scrutinize genomes of corona viruses collected from patients who are diagnosed with the disease so far. They've looked through the genetic codes of more than one hundred and sixty thousand viral sequences. They're all being to find things precisely like this and of course then we. We say we found one this and then the whole world says we don't want you of course they don't want us all the all the virus but not surprisingly just to cautionary stage but yes It it's likely that this sort of thing is a bit of an inevitability and it may well be it's farther afield. Things like farther afield than anyone knows yet because they just haven't detected e. Yeah so what do we know about this mutation will. It's not a single mutation. It's a variant the calling it variant because rather than just a mutant which is one genetic change. This one's actually got a constellation of genetic changes there are seventeen independent genetic differences in this new variant that seems to confer opponent the ability to spread a bit better and they're peppered throughout the genetic code of the virus they affect v aspects of how the virus works but there's a big cluster of these changes all centered on what's called the essel spike protein. Which is the key part of the virus. That's all of these out coats that it uses to infect ourselves and so this is why researchers think that it may be more transmissible. Something has changed in the way the virus behaves in terms of its its ability to engage with our cells its ability to penetrate and jack cells and then cause disease and then spread to another person We don't know exactly how it's doing that yet. And we don't know for sure that it really is more transmissible but based on the numbers that we're seeing the the epidemiology the pattern of spread. It seems like a likely reasonable supposition. Is it possible that this variation is a response to the measures that we have undertaken to defeat it is is the virus adapting to survive ovar adapt to survive. And that's really what charles darwin point out. And that was his big breakthrough his grand unified theory of biology. If you like that everything responds in a dynamic way. All the time to pressure applied from its environment and where we think. This may have arisen. This new variant is actually in the blood of an individual or individuals with poorly functioning immune systems because individuals. Who don't have a good immune response to the virus. Tend to hang onto the virus fa- longer. They have a chronic infection with the virus. And this means that as their immune system limps along trying to control it the virus is getting a chance to see inner workings of the immune response and it can see where the chinks in our alma and therefore it can adapt and shift in that direction a bid to take advantage of those changes to cling onto survival in that person. Now if that person then transmits a virus which has adapted in this way it's basically passing on a more weaponized or more tooled up version of the virus. The reason that such as a putting forward this hypothesis is because when we have treated patients and documented what happens in them when they have an impaired immune system for various reasons. Were genetic reasons. There are also acquired reasons why people's immune systems might not work very. Well they've seen very similar changes happening in the viruses in those people to this variant that circulating suggesting that it may will be homegrown as it were and borne out of the fact that some people can't can't fight it off as well as efficiently giving the varsity insight into how our immune system works and enabling it to adapt accordingly. I mean we have talked before about the fact that it's not in the interests of viruses whose only interest eads the perpetuation replication. It's not necessarily in the interest of any virus. To kill its hosts. Is it possible that viruses variation to become more transmissible but perhaps less deadly. Well we don't know at the moment and That's one of the key questions that people are going to want to be asking. It's a relatively new discovery first appeared as a blip on the radar of kochi uk. The consortium that founded back in september and the cases them were just a few and far between become a lot more common sense obviously rising to one in four cases in november perhaps as many as sixty percent of cases in december in some parts of the country that means that we've now got the chance to see firsthand in greater detail in greater numbers. What is impact on people is and so people will be asking this very question this thing if it does transmit more efficiently which it appears it does does it as we believe not cause such severe disease or cause any more severe disease than the standard parent from which its rose the moment it doesn't look like it translates into getting more severe disease. It doesn't look like it's currently beyond the reach of the protection conferred by the immune response In response to the vaccine but we don't know that crucial question has it surrendered some of its violence. In order to optimize. In this way time will tell you partially answered what. I'm sure is now the key question because the the glimmer of optimism in which we have all been basking these last few weeks is the approval and roll out of the vaccine. Several hundred thousand people here in the uk have already received at least the first injection. Is it possible that nineteen could mutate or very this quickly Out of the reach of the vaccine. Matt hancock rishaad everybody when he made the announcement last week about the discovery of this new variant. That it didn't look like it would be able to sidestep the immune response conferred by the vaccine the experiments to prove that that is the case. Though are still ongoing. Thankfully they're very easy experiments to do. And that's what porton down will currently be investigating. And i would hope that they will provide that reassurance. Quite soon the way you go about this is you. Grow the virus in the lab and that's actually very easy to do and you add to it samples of the antibodies that a person makes when they're vaccinated and if the antibodies still work against the variant. And you do this with samples across the country. Then you can say these neutralize this virus even though it's the variant and therefore these people will be protected if they have the vaccine. So that's that's kind of what we're waiting for now to to see that data. It's very easy the experiments to go to do them properly though. That will give us reassurance to answer that question what the future holds. Though we don't know and that's why some researches saying this could be a stepping stone on the part of the virus towards a more comprehensive ability to sidestep our immune response including the response to the vaccine and for that. It's a sort of shot across out immunological bowels. We have to keep it onto surveillance. Keep searchlight trained upon it so that we can see where it's moving anticipate is next. Move and try to head off
NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights
"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

Milestone for COVID-19 Vaccine
"Want to get right to today's major covid nineteen development the uk's approval of a vaccine the first country to take that step clearing the way for vaccinations there soon. As in the us when a program starts here in the uk elderly residents of nursing homes and frontline healthcare workers will be the first to get the shots developed by pfizer and the german company biontech pfizer says eight hundred thousand doses are doing the uk in the coming days. The country has a population of sixty six million british prime minister boris johnson who survived his own serious case of covid. Nineteen spoke in the house of commons. Today i would like to pay tribute to thank all those who made this possible. It is the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get our economy moving again. Jason bourne is npr's global health and development correspondent so jason. You've been scanning the globe. Your thoughts on this milestone today absolutely. It's a big deal. This is the moment. We've all been waiting for right when vaccine starts to actually be available to the general public Supplies are gonna be limited in the beginning and we need to underscore that. This is a pfizer vaccine that we're talking about it's just one of the vaccines but it really is remarkable. How quickly they've managed to get this from scratch all the way to the approval stage and it's not just visor you've got these other ones that are in the works to but normally would take fifteen to twenty years to do this a year ago. We hadn't even heard of. Sarah sylvie two and here. They've done this in a matter of months. It's really it's hard under state. How important remarkable. This is using the real scientific name for covid nineteen. But what's your biggest concern as the uk starts to raw the vaccine as other countries watch. Yeah i mean there's gonna be issues. One is just the logistics. As i mentioned. This is the pfizer vaccine. So this is the one takes incredibly low temperature for storage at it's minus seventy centigrade needs at at certain points in time when it's when it's being stored and transported so logistically this is not going to be an easy task to get the vaccine all the different places it needs to get to get people vaccinated but it's doable but there could be some logistical challenges. Second is going to be concerned. That we're going from vaccinating. Tens of thousands of people during these trials to now. You're gonna start giving it to millions of people and that after some of these people get the shots. Some of them are going to have some medical issue. Maybe they were just about to have a heart attack it. That is going to happen when you start giving this to such a large pool of people in questions are gonna come up about. Was that an adverse reaction to to this vaccine might have nothing to do with the vaccine but these are the types of issues on that could lead some resistance stumbling blocks some questions about the vaccine in the months ahead and just look globally for us for a second which countries have managed to control infection rates. Well what lessons can we learn. Some of the european countries have done quite well. You look at france and spain over the last month. They've brought their second waves down significantly. Ireland also seems to have gotten fully passed. Its second peak. The numbers continue to remain really quite low in africa Places like chile had a big surge in june and then they brought it down to relatively low numbers and they have managed to avoid a second wave entirely. Like we've seen in some other places so it's really different in different parts of the world but there are definitely examples out there of places that have managed to do it successfully and keep their numbers either. Bring them down after a second peak or keep them low right and what about the people who have been to be kind stuttering Here in the us. We're seeing huge numbers of cases. Every day where are the other troublespots yet the us still continues to dominate this pandemic globally with one out of every four cases being in the us but after the us then at the moment it's india brazil. Italy and russia in that order in eight is interesting to sort of look at this You know eighty percent of both the cases and the deaths are in either the americas or in europe. It's really been these two regions that have borne the brunt of this. I'm an even this week. documents from the world health organization. Said he's very concerned about mexico and brazil and the rising numbers there so there are definitely places that are that are not doing so well we just have a few seconds here but i think i know the answer this question. Yes the vaccine is coming. It's coming faster to the uk but the virus still winning at this point isn't it unfortunately. Is this pandemic continues to grow. Even as we see it ebb and flow and certain places. The numbers continue to to come more and more each week and they come faster and faster so yes. The news about the vaccine is very important to actually slow the of the virus that we're seeing globally
California adopts stricter workplace coronavirus safety rules
"Million workers here are going to be covered by the new mandate, which would include specific requirements for masks and physical distancing and reporting of outbreaks, all measures that aren't legally required at the federal level, but as marketplaces, making McCarty Carino reports That might change. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration usually set specific, enforceable rules for dealing with workplace dangers like hazardous chemicals and blood borne diseases. But not for covert 19. There was no guidance anywhere really for people. Maggie Robbins is a safety advocate with the nonprofit work Safe, which collaborated with California regulators on their new emergency rules. No way we can control the broader circulation of Kobe it If we keep having outbreaks at workplaces, California regulators will have new tools to enforce mask wearing and physical distancing, and employers will be required to investigate report and test for potential outbreaks. But Robert Moo tree with the California Chamber of Commerce says that could unfairly burden employers as community spread surges. You may have no role in those cases of hearing your workplace, but you will be put under outbreak protocols here. Large workplace outbreaks have been documented at meat packing plants, garment factories and among farm workers across the country. And incidents of workplace infections or growing. That's why the federal government needs to follow the lead of states like California, says Rebecca Randall, with the A F L C E O. The virus doesn't know boundaries in any national leadership to set those plans. The Labor group will be making recommendations to the Biden transition team for who should lead OSHA, the president elect has said, and acting national workplace safety rules is a high priority. Making McCarty Carino for marketplace.

"Mosquito borne infections like Zepa Dangi malaria and she can. Cause millions of deaths each year, many different approaches have been tried to prevent their bites, bednets, asides, fumigation, and genetic controls Nicole. Colbert and colleagues wrote this week in science robotics about a new way to deal with deadly mosquitos. Using Drones Hainkel has there. How are you pretty good? How are you and thank you very much? This approach with drones it starts with a type of genetic control used for tapping down mosquito populations. How does that part work began a mass fear them and and big laboratories there sterilize, and then take into the fields, and then ultimately released trying to integrate them into the wild population with females, so if there's a bunch of sterile males out there. There the females are not going to have very much reproductive success exactly so when a sterile mating occurs the stereo mail transfer Cerro sperm to the female, and thus ingesting a form of thoroughly within the wild population, which, if done over time with weekly release for example you can sort of suppress population dumbed quite a low level. Why has this type of method been adopted, say instead of pesticides or fumigating the area and trying to just kill all the tax. So this is a technique that was developed in the nineteen fifties. It's been used successfully against particularly agricultural pests, such as fruit flies very environmentally friendly technique. It does not have any impact on the non target organisms. Pesticides are becoming more and more regular. It's around. The world's insecticides are purchasing resistance than the population of Mosquitos and become less effective over time, and at the same time we're seeing an increase in mosquito populations around the world. It is l. pictures is managed to. Arise from the forests of Asia on colonize every continent besides toxic in the last four years then get incidents is increasing dramatically, and in light of this whol of express an urgent need for attorney mosquito control methods. Why would you need to use a drone for this method of population control in previous sterilization technique pilot trials with excuse, they've always been carried out from the ground to move towards an operational level area is most likely the way that will be going forward. Offers many advantages over grind release. You can cover much larger. And a much shorter time. It's also much more cost effective. You have less vehicles on the ground. Less labor costs associated <unk> less gasoline an idea that he's drawing. Is that once? You purchase that you have a one time cost? It's capable of flying for Bremner <unk>. Say Twenty Twenty five minutes. You could perhaps carry a few hundred thousand a week. I, read a little bit less, but it is possible with. With upscaling to carry a little bit more and offers a possibility to cover quite a large area and a relatively short time. I was surprised to learn that. Mosquitoes don't travel very far. Even though they can fly, they gonNA. Stick around where they are, and so it makes sense to drop them all over the place said of releasing them from one centralized spot. That's very true. That's particularly true of eighties Egypt. It's estimated to disperse fifty to a hundred meters in its lifetime so very short distances by grind. It would just be so much more tedious, but if you have a drawn, you can just go up there and ensure you're making a a nice homogenous distribution with your release, and perhaps aiden with the dispersal. When you tested this I in the lab. What did you have to optimize to get this little carrier that you made that attached to the drone? What did you have to focus on to get it to work? It was a really intensive twelve months in the lab. There was so many things that had to be optimized both from our side, and also on the side of the the X. Ngo that we were collaborating with we need to. To look at things like the idea of storage temperature traditionally when be up to the release of sterile insects, usually in a chilled state, so they're sleeping. We needed to know what the best temperature was for that, and also when we have kept them asleep I alone. Hell long did it take to wake up after they've been sleeping and that's particularly important when releasing by air because you want them to wake up before they reach the ground. Out Results, minutely bill determined the height that you can actually fly the drone up, so we were looking at that as well as things like the level of compaction, we want to try carry many mosquitoes in one flight as we can, but when you put look of them, you're talking tens of thousands one box. They're going to be weighed down on top of each other and the ones that the boom bill eventually become damaged, so we can optimize in the. The maximum amount that we could put in one canister, and ultimately how many Mosquitos could release per flight? Another parameter we look that was wind resistance. When you're flying a drone a certain speed, there's going to be quite effective wind when they come drawn, so we wanted to know have affected our I mean does disease damage wings can this fly is lethal? So we made wind tunnel Metex observe flight ability after being subjected to various speeds of wind and we. We also looked at the drop speed again to determine the height of release. So when you drop a sleeping skew, have quickly. Does it full and again that would help determine the height of release

The wooden block unbothered. I continue to stage the tool. I'm using to stitch this man. Thigh as a three inch suture needle. It's a crazy. Look in curved needle with an islet on one end that pulls the suture material through the tiny puncture holes the sound the needle makes when it tears and pops through. The skin is both satisfying sickening. I have to turn the part of my brain off that empathizes when I do this. Otherwise all do is think. About what the needle would feel going through my thigh. Every time I push it hard enough to pop through. I'll tell ya it does help that. My needle POKES AREN'T DRAWING ANY BLOOD SINCE MR RYAN IS DEAD. And his heart isn't pumping any blood through his body. He's not bleeding. It's weird you think you'll never forget what it's like to cut into a human body for the first time but you do it becomes just another thing you have to do no different than making copies or running to the post office. Don't get me wrong. I still see these dead people coming in and out of the funeral home as people respect them accordingly but I just never thought I would be so blase about cutting into someone else or giving them a wildly mediocre stitch job. Once I finished my last bit of stitching on the right leg I grab some super sale. It's a kind of rubber cement and a small strip of white cotton to cover my rough but functional stitching. It's twelve fifty five. Now the Simon's will be here any minute. Ned takes off his gloves and straightens himself up to go downstairs before he leaves Ned points to a pile of instruments on the operating table. Next to Mr Ryan's head and asked me to clean them in the sink and put them away. He's only asking because he hates to clean up his own masses and he knows I have to say yes Yemen. I got it. I walk over and grabbed the small pile of oddly shaped tweezers scalpels with both hands and walk over to the sink. The Operating Room Door Slams. Shut behind the net and it startles me as a result of being surprised by such a loud noise my hands and voluntarily tightened around the instruments and I felt one of the sharper ones push and slide against the lowest media's part of my middle finger on my right hand it's right where the palm and finger meet. I immediately dumped everything into the sink. And unlike Mr Ryan there was blood. More than enough to be alarmed. I can see that. I'm cut through my surgical glove and blood is dripping into the sink and I can see it moving around between my skin and the latex inside my glove I take off and turn the Faucet on full blast with my finger underneath the sting or burn or whatever. The sensation is moves up my entire arm. I panic a little. I don't want anybody to know about this so embarrassing. Plus we're so busy right now. Wonderful need stitches. I pull my hand from under the stream of water to reveal a cut on the base of my finger about a half inch long probably less okay as long as I can stop the bleeding. I'll be fine. I grab a handful of paper towels and squeeze my bleeding fist around it. What am I gonNA use a band? I see the blood soaking into the paper towel. So much bleeding considering the size of the slice there's no way little ass. Bandaids GONNA cover this. The Intercom Beeps on Grant Intercom Grant Intercom. It's Ned faulk. They probably me downstairs pushed the speaker button on the phone near the sink and say as calmly as possible. Hey what's up ned? We need you downstairs grant. The family is a bunch of food. They need help carrying in all right. I'll be right down. Ned hangs up. The paper in my hand is almost completely soaked through with blood. What am I going to do? I can't go down there and carry food with a bloody hand or a surgical glove on. That would be bad optics but I can tell you. I'm certainly not walking downstairs with a gun. My face in front of my dad and Ned telling them that. I need to go to the hospital. I really don't want to have to do that so I need to think fast. I see the sutures. Eli used to close up Ryan's incisions. I have an idea. No I'M NOT GONNA use it. That's horribly unsanitary and completely disgusting but seeing the jar of glorified. Rubber Cement reminds me that we have fresh tubes of superglue in our office next to the Operating Room. That should do the trick. Lay superglue all the time to fill in broken blisters on my fingers and palms in between said strumming long bar. Gigs AND WEDDING RECEPTIONS. Professional wrestlers have been doing this shift for years. So if it's good enough for Stone Cold Steve Austin. It's good enough for me. I delicately wipe the blood away from the cut. The Best I could and then I put about four or five generous drops of superglue in and on the slice the glue and my blood makes together it sets and stop speeding after a launch. I stood at the back door working Simon's visitation until I left at five. I was just repeating the same couple of phrases over and over like an amusement park animatronic.

"Well, if you go to congressman Bornes website, which includes the full letter that he led already five other members of congress signed onto Wimborne dot house dot gov. But he released a statement regarding the letter congressman LeBron that said it's insulting to our sovereignty to submit to social policies in trade agreement and goes on to say, congress has refused to accept us. If you go to his Facebook page, and you see the outrage from a lot of people who aren't really well versed in this issue. They do think that they do think that this is just anti LGBT. But what this really is question of sovereignty, and we need to have this conversation in congress because if we want to if congress wants to legislate certain protections for an LGBT members that should not just rationally come under gender-based law on and it would be the same thing as defining gender, which is an immutable biological characteristic. That HHS is now recognized. There's a meme a letter from the. Attorney general's office last year that talked about this. We shouldn't be including that in the definition of gender that needs to be a separate conversation. How we as the United States are prepared to move forward in dealing with that issue. But again it belongs nowhere to trade agreement. An absolutely does not belong in the in the bureaucratic offices a big -secutive government to undermine congress is classic leftwing bayton. Switch is what they do with the supreme court all the time is they get things that might sound sympathetic to people. But in fact, they break the very system or abused the very system that's there to protect our rights. So they they the throw away our sovereignty and say, oh, but look at the poor gay people where they throw away our right to make law and say look at the poor gay people or look at the poor pregnant woman who needs an abortion, and that's using our kind of compassion and sympathy for people in trouble. They take away our actual rights in our systems. It's it's amazing tactic. And amaze. See how often the works. I don't think it would work as well. As it does. If the press weren't so entirely on board. Absolutely. And I think that you know, if the if the US trade Representative was seeing to define us in any other way outside the scope of congress. We would still have the same issue, and we would still have the same objection to say that that definitions of law things that matters of law that have not been determined by congress belong nowhere in a trade agreement. But like you said, you're just because people are sympathetic to that type of language they're willing to sell out future future sovereignty and our separation of powers why we elect our senators and representatives to go to Washington, and we have a governance to be able to say we're voting out. If you go outside the margins of the constitution. And so if we concede on one issue, and we say, oh, that's fine. Just because we happen to like this issue. If we like an activist court, for example, just because they're willing to side with us on one policy issue than that sets up a very dangerous precedent. And what if the gbi T community doesn't? Like what a future trade agreement looks like they're going to have the same objections. That's why conservatism is conserving and protecting not only our national sovereignty. But the rule of law on the separation of powers is such a good half to give him credit. It's a great trick that keep using. It keeps working. Let's see if it works this time. Jenna, it's great to see we will continue our argument on the air next time about the libertarianism have a wonderful thanksgiving..

Which is what happened? But do you get my point? I wanted to hearing the next day. Yeah. Just let me come and give you my side of the story. That's all the evidence you need except like I said last week that his testimony along with Dr Ford's while both are testimony are not corroborating evidence, which again Republicans on the committee refused to agree to both. They and cavenaugh spent much of their time on Thursday whining. The doctor Bornes alligators were unsubstantiated and uncorroborated one they wouldn't allow any corroboration, but cavernous so entitled, and frankly just Pissy he thinks all that's needed is a hearing in which he alone testify.
