Blocked Suez Canal Exposes Global Supply Chain's Fragility
"Lead. Today comes to us. Courtesy of the ever given that is a thirteen hundred foot. Long two hundred foot wide containership. One of the biggest of its kind. That is as of this moment. Most embarrassingly stuck jamming up the suez canal. Nobody going north not going south one of the key routes of global trade basically closed we have gotten christine. Mcdaniel on zoomed. Help us understand how this might play out. She's a senior research. Fellow at the mercatus center at george mason university. Thanks so much for coming on. Thank you nice to be here. So i have to tell you the first thing i thought when i saw pictures of this ship turned sideways in the canal. Other than how the heck did that happen was wow. The global supply chain is really really fragile. If this can block a major artery yes. It is fragile. There's lots of moving parts but remember the global shipping industry logistics. They are used to supply shocks demand. Shocks weather related war-related. So you know it's nothing they haven't dealt with before fair enough but if you are a a tanker company looking at this traffic jam in the suez canal. How long are you gonna wait and let your extremely valuable ships. Sit there in the backlog before you go around down the south of africa and angola the long way round right. Well economists especially trade. Economists have spent some time trying to calculate how much time cost and international trade The couple economists demanded that each additional delay of shipping is equivalent to about a half a percent to two percents patera And then of course. This is cascading. Because it's not just the stuff on that particular ship That's that's delayed by that. it's everything else. That's getting delayed because of

"4 30 am for construction work. I'm J. Phillips Co Moh 24 7, trapping Shannon O'Donnell with your co Moh forecast Everybody. It has been a beauty of a Tuesday.

Thanks so i'm sure the audience really going to enjoy this station. And what you guys see in the financial markets right now. Toby whereas and i wrote a book of fairy long time ago now. It's almost a decade since it came out and that's pretty good explanation of sort of the underlying process which is like the screen basically and then under a few things on top of that. I think the most interesting thing in the market at the moment is kathy would and ach. Etf's you might remember. In the early dot com days those funchal janus and the head break performances go great flows like a of flaws as a result and they were focused on smaller quid. Take names said janus had these gripe flows into these very illiquid stocks and they degrade performance as a result and it was probably van driving up. The performance of those stocks has been a similar argument made about ach that they tend to focus on smaller. Non-profitable take stokes and Sorta gigantically big of the last few years. It's now sort of a third or fourth biggest. Ats show out there that flows now that go into these small illiquid tech stocks of they control prices of these textbooks. Had this little wobble of the last few days colson redemptions for them which may cause them to do some selling as well they also have been exposure tasteless I just think that that's the driver of the market at the moment is potentially getting some redemptions having to sell out of some of those stocks which will push an the names and a very sort of beholden to what tesla Much big stuff. But it's still quite volatile. Hasn't made a great deal of money and so there's some risks that creates Cascade selling an odd gets coordinated.

Here's what we know about the blood clots reports
"So we keep hearing. That astrazeneca is well All of the australian authorities and many many authorities say that it's it's probably not linked but we've seen countries in your pulling the vaccine off the shelves just for a moment just to see whether there's a link between the vaccine and people having dangerous blood clots and so. Why are we still talking about this. Why don't we have a clear answer yet as to whether they're dangerous or not. Let's take a helicopter view here. One is you could say. Well are the european countries panicking and jumping the gun and in fact on last night seven. Thirty john skerrett from tgi kind of implied that he thought that the where having said that they're you know the good scientists overseas and they they may be jumping the gun in terms of public opinion or they may have a reason and the probably is a theoretical reason. I was just wondering yesterday and fight. What could be the reason that they're jumping the gun. And you've got more and more countries coming on stream. And i think one of the reasons it's impossible to know exactly but i suspect the one of the reasons is. It's not entirely typical. What's happening. And i just need to a little bit of physiology biology here. So how blood clots is that you as a very complicated cascade of chemicals. But one of the essential things for a blood clot cells in the blood code platelets and when the blog needs to claude. The platelets clump together. Stick together and they start the process of a blood clot and blood cells and chemicals all get together and cause a blood clot and sometimes that blood moves off into another part of the body like the lungs and that can be fatal. So you have platelets for a blood clot now. There have been reports in europe of people with low blood. Platelets is called trump aside opinion. Low blood platelets associated with blackhawks. He think well. How can that be. Well let me. Just move to the site slightly. There have been reports in the united states of pfizer. Moderna vaccine causing low platelets. In fact one doctor died in florida of catastrophically. Low blood platelet count and that was to hemorrhage because there weren't platelets to cause blackhawks
Survey: Americans Could Spend Up to $40B in Stimulus Payments on Bitcoin
"And today we're talking about why americans are poised to spend up to forty billion dollars. Indirect stimulus payments on bitcoin. I however let's do the brief. I on the brief today. We have to do a little price talk. It was another weekend and another milestone. Unless you were dead or completely off the grid you know that. Bitcoin hit sixty thousand dollars. In fact it spent some significant time over sixty one thousand dollars now. The prices subsequently come back down a little bit. There was a set of cascading because people insist on trading with a huge amount of leverage and the popular narrative around the small dip from today is that it's just profit taking and certainly when we've seen such a meteoric rise up it makes sense that that would be the case for me. I don't care so much about the price. But what i do care about and what i find. Interesting is the psychological impact of the price. It took three years to get back to twenty thousand after it was first reached in twenty seventeen. It took just three months from when we hit twenty thousand this time around to jump three x two sixty thousand of course in that sort of extreme scenario. You're gonna have a bifurcated response. They're going to be many. Who see this as validation or even who get off the fence because the asset has proved itself others are going to double triple quadruple down on their frantic critique and man did i notice a lot of boomer macro guys their crap on twitter this weekend. Lynn alden seem to as well tweeting. Bitcoin bear twitter. went from. It's a bubble and dead technology pumped up by tether to america will ban it before it displaces. The dollar is global reserve currency and i support this i e the banning of certain property and literal information rather quickly while regulation and state attacks are a long known risk factor for bitcoin. When bears talk like this about the asset. It ironically sounds more bullish than when bulls talk about it bear starting to view it as that much of a threat as ever. This price can move around quite a bit. But it's certainly does not feel like this area that we're at in the forties and fifties and all the way up past sixty thousand. Feel like mania. It just feels like the consistent and relentless pressure of more people trying to buy a thing that they're just that much of
"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason
Hundreds of coffins fall into the sea following collapse of an Italian cemetery
"A cemetery collapse in Italy sends coffins on landslide Part of the cemetery cascaded into the sea off the coast of Italy near Genoa, with 200 coffins plunging into the water before bobbing to the surface. Recovery effort is still underway, though, will be slow as parts of the cliffs surrounding the landslide are still unstable. Work to stabilize the area was underway, but not yet complete. Cemetery has been closed off to the public, and no one was injured. Several coastal storms have hit the area over the past few years. Accelerating erosion of the cliff Meghan Williams, ABC NEWS Rome
"cascades" Discussed on KOMO
"Over the Cascades were closed simultaneously, almost Abby a Cockney reports on why the threat is so high this year. Over the last three weeks, the Cascades have stacked up 3 to 8 Ft. Of snow, So the heavy rain snow in the higher peaks and strong with are creating the potential for destructive avalanches. We may even see in some instances, these things, break trees or even run into some forested areas. So we're talking about big avalanches, and we're talking about avalanches that we think are almost certain. One Last note washout tells me the last time all three of these major mountain passes were closed simultaneously for avalanche. Danger was back in 2017. And before that, in 2000 and eight comas, Abby, a Cockney. The Seattle area continues to be one of the hottest housing markets in the country. The details from comes great Herschel. The evidence is contained in the new home price index from S and P Coral Logic and case Schiller in the past year, average home values in Seattle increased 13.6%. That's second only to Phoenix. The national increase was 10.4%, and that's the first time it's been in double digits for seven years. The new report also shows more rapid price increases form or affordable homes. Those under $500,000, then for the price here, one's above self. 100,000 and one other interesting note. Seattle area Home prices on average have risen 55% over the past six years.

People answered questions from the Martek group designed survey not only to understand how these employees.
Space Junk Chronicals
"Since nineteen fifty seven. Humanity has been launching satellites into earth orbit. It's estimated in the last four years almost nine thousand satellites in total have put into orbit for the vast majority of space age. There was never a plan for what would be done with the satellites after their lifetime. They were launched without any thought as to how or if they could ever come down the nine thousand or so satellites. Five thousand are still in orbit. Two thousand our service in three thousand are dead. D satellites are usually quite large. They can vary in size from a bus to a box and they aren't the real problem when it comes to space junk the big problem is debris when you send up a rocket there's all sorts of miscellaneous parts on the upper stage of the rocket that holds the satellite. That will go into orbit with it. This can include metal panels bolts screws and even flakes of paint. You'd think that given how big spaces that space junk might not be a problem as douglas adams noted quote space is big really big. You won't believe how vastly hugely mind. Bogglingly big it is suppose you had a million pennies that would be enough to easily fit in a minivan. Now let's suppose you distributed those pennies all over the world including the ocean and antarctica. Each penny would have one hundred ninety. Seven square miles of space or a single penny would have a square which was fourteen by fourteen miles factor in that the lowest earth orbit is a sphere larger than the earth. And that there's a vertical dimension where we could put pennies at different elevations. Then it would seem that space junk was a big problem if the object just sat there. That's true it wouldn't be a problem however all that junk isn't just sitting there. It's orbiting earth at extremely high speeds. Any piece of space junk is probably travelling at at least seventeen thousand miles per hour when something is traveling that fast no matter how small it is it can cause a great deal of damage. Moreover everything is on a slightly different orbit that means over time these orbits can cross and the longer something remains in orbit the greater the odds that these past will eventually cross and that things will smash together some of the things which are floating around in space include two cameras that got away from astronauts players a screwdriver or wrench a full toolbag garbage bags a lens cap a spatula and microscopic flakes of rocket propellant and that is on top of all the rocket debris and dead satellites if a ship with astronauts were to be hit it could lead to the deaths of the crew if important satellite were to be hid it could lead to a loss of critical communications. Gps signals or observational capabilities. This isn't just a theoretical problem. There have been cases of collisions in space. The space shuttle headed many tiny impacts from debris in space on the seven space shuttle mission. In one thousand. Nine hundred three. The front windshield was hit by a fleck of paint which damaged the window. It looked very similar to what happens when a rocket. your windshield damage. To the shuttle's he tiles was so common that the eventually began flying the shuttle backwards in space so that the engines which weren't used during re entry took most of the damage. The shuttle endeavour was hit by an object so large that its radiator looked like it was hit with a bullet. The international space station has to move on average at least once a year to avoid space debris the soviet cosmos twelve. Seventy five satellite was hit by an object in one thousand nine hundred eighty one which was believed to be the first case of a satellite being destroyed by space junk. Perhaps the worst case occurred in two thousand nine when the kosmos twenty fifty one satellite which was dead smashed into the iridium thirty three satellite at a relative speed of twenty six thousand miles per hour. These collisions and there have been several more only make things worse. In the first case three hundred objects were created from the collision in the second there were suddenly thousands of new objects thrown off on different trajectories in orbit in two thousand seven. The chinese government didn't anti-satellite missile test. That blew up a satellite in space creating tens of thousands of pieces of debris this problem of junk causing collisions which then creates exponentially more junk risk. Something called the kessler syndrome. This hypothesized in nineteen seventy eight by nasa. Scientists david kessler. He proposed that collisions could start a cascade of debris which would cause more collisions and even more debris rinse and repeat.
Houston hospitals are running out of water amid power outages
"Houston is one of the places where as you mentioned. Hospitals have been hit read reports today about pipes bursting multiple houston hospitals as they struggle without heat without water. Obviously the idea of having no water pressure no ability to flush toilets or running water to clean anything. Hospital is a nightmare scenario. What can you tell us about that that status in harris county and and the circumstances of your hospitals right now so we lost power on a very early monday morning about one in the morning and that meant that many of the generators that keep that water pressure going were down That then allows bacteria to seep into the water causing wool water notices right now as of about an hour ago that got my briefing. We have two hundred and twenty two cities and municipal utility districts within harris county. That are under boil water notices. That's about three point. Three million people who cannot drink their water as the the roads become less impassable at least they can they can try and go out and purchase it. But again you know. We've got a lot of grocery stores that are not operating. Many folks of course have missed a whole week's work even amidst pandemic and they're facing all of these same cascading effects right now. The main concern is the water situation
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner gives update on power outages and weather impact
"With me now is houston mayor sylvester turner previously served nearly thirty years as a texas state representative. He is in a command center right now. Monitoring situation in his city mayor. Thank you for taking a little time with us. And i don't want to start first with things aren't houston. Are they getting better. Chris in the last twenty four hours. Things have improved yesterday. At this time we had about one point. Three million customers without power Today as i talked to you that number is under thirty thousand in houston region yesterday The the water pressure was extremely low In fact hospitals were having a hard time getting but they needed Just to run a bear chillers to stay warm and other necessities today. The water pressure in the city of houston has increased And hospitals in much better shape at the same time people many of the people able to flush their kamoze improvement with still not wear. We want it to be but yesterday the pressure was below what we call twenty. Ps today as we speak that what a precious right around thirty so being things improving but again we still have some tremendous needs at. They're just zero in on the water aspect of this has been one of the more harrowing parts of it and a kind of a kind of cascade effect. We're going out water treatment facilities. Just explain to me what that means that it does. It mean pressure. Now you can you can. People can run water in their homes. That firefighters have water that hospitals have it is. That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water. Notices so you have over seven hundred jurisdictions around the state of texas a chieftain san antonio austin example in many others where there are bald notice requirements and that will continue to be the case probably through the weekend at the earliest that ball. What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example. Who don't have the means to go into a grocery store and purchase tomorrow for example will be masked water distribution site in the city of houston where we will probably give out tomorrow anywhere between seven to nine hundred thousand bottles of water primarily for people for families who already on the modulus. Chris and they just can't afford to go in and purchase two and three and four cases of water. And we'll do that Tomorrow saturday sunday until this ball. Water notice has been listed. That's really that's very helpful in understanding where things are. Let me let me also ask what your interfaces have been. With spill state and federal government i know females on the on on the ground. Have you been talking with aircraft that run the the grid with folks from fina. The federal government and with governor abbot. What are those interactions been like. Well i've talked several times with the ceo. Behead of eric hot And n n what he will say to you. Is that the system that we have in the state of texas. Our texas korea is designed for the summer heat. It is not necessarily designed for winter storms and then as relates to this. What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile. Chris was never given a hearing. And so for anybody. Who's just trying to place the blame on irc That's not enough as part of the story but it's not the total story. Archive is an agency of the state of texas is the leadership of that overseas or cat and what happened in this week with the failure. Not just urquhot but of the statewide leadership state representative state senators. Who didn't do enough to make the necessary. Structural changes prevent what took place this week but mccurry and as a result of that hundreds of thousands of texans paid a horrible price and they are number of stony that we live in the city of my city that anada that not allowed to date to go into next week. Some of them died from carbon monoxide. Trying to keep themselves
Trump acquitted in lightning-fast impeachment trial
"The Padres. NASA's perseverance Rover scheduled to land on Mars this afternoon. Retail sales jumped last month as we shopped more and Texas nurses tough it out to get to the hospital. That story in about 20 minutes. President Biden laid out a sweeping mission on Inauguration Day, declaring his gold to tackle the cascading crises afflicting America. He cited eroding faith in democracy and even in truth Growing inequity, systemic racism and the climate. The implication was that he would offer solutions or at least progress toe all of these crises. In reality, he'll have to pick his battles, and the choices he makes in the coming weeks will begin to set the terms of his legacy. More from Sean Zeller, editor at CQ Roll Call Shaun How do you see it? We've been living through a just a time where politics has become like Combat perpetual combat where the party's air after each other, where they have nothing nice to say about each other. So, although the outcome here was not what Democrats wanted I was struck by the tone of the whole proceeding, which struck me as quite somber and there were very few Republicans who were castigating the Democrats for like they were during Trump's first impeachment, you know, calling it a witch on calling and frivolous and ridiculous. For the most part, most of the Republican senators. Felt that Donald Trump had done something wrong here and they were. They were very sober about it, and we're not castigating the Democrats and vice versa. The Democrats were, I think, appealing to the jury jury, which included Republican senators and not trying to offend them by Saying that they were to blame for Donald Trump's behavior. Why was the tone different this time? I think Democrats really wanted to expand the number of Republicans who voted to convict they weren't they weren't expecting that they would get a conviction, which would require 67 votes and 17 Republican senators, but They wanted to get a number of Republican senators. And so you don't want to offend your jury and the tone of their argument. The House impeachment managers argument was Hey, we were the victims here. We were the people in the capital when the mob arrived, we were the ones fleeing from them and They praise. For example, Mike Pence the Republican Vice president Donald Trump's vice president, who they had pilloried for the last four years. They praised him for being there for overseeing the electoral vote count. Despite Donald Trump

"One hundred million. Americans remain under winter weather. Advisories of some sort tonight at least thirty. People have died in storm-related incidents since late since late last week.

Hidcote: Behind glass at the plant shelter
"Here though to talk about the plant shelter. Which is the domain. Where i am sure. Many of my listeners would be heading. I as enthusiasts of plants behind glass. They is far grander. I'm sure than anything that i can offer in my own. My own discard. And how big is the plot shelter in. What kind of things are in there. The plan shelter as off the top of my head about thirty meters boy. Five or six meters. It's made range runs from east to west and it has glass on this southern front but it has a solid war on the back on the northern the northern aspect. Well sounds perfect for so many plants. i bet it's a nice place to retire to Chillier days just fine things go and do the plant shelter for the weather's terrible. It's definitely one that you don't need to draw. Draw zone when when the opportunity presents itself. It's a love space nicely protected but is a particularly interesting sort of structure in itself in that it was designed. I imagine boy johnson himself. He had studied architecture in america before he came here and the front the south front that is laced actually can be removed and so becomes as who came out the garden rooms. It becomes another room in the garden during the summertime because it has that kind of open aspects which we then plant very much on the front and we can bring pulse right to the front of it said that their cascading out into the garden sound school just and is everything in pots or in bed.

That you know things grow so well that you do need to hack them back a bit. I occasionally and get things back under control.

"That may cars potential harm. So that's an example. A non-surgical anti-inflammatory drug leading to hypertension. And therefore the initiation of anti hypertensive i think is an example. That is one of the common ones and you can imagine the that could be the result of prescribed medication or it could potentially be something taken over the counter. Yeah imagine that is very common. So what's the best way for physicians to prevent prescribing cascades in the first place. Well i think when when you're thinking about Prescribing you know. I think you always need to think about when you're starting the drug is you know. Is this drug needed at all. So if you're if you're thinking about somebody showing up for example wisdom. Something like arthritis comfort is possible that you could think about a non pharmacologic approach so that would be an obvious sort of place that you might wanna start but if you are thinking about starting a drug therapy you obviously want to pick something that has the fewest potential side effects associated with it and using the lowest dose that you potentially need to do so. That's sort of one of the things that you might be doing going forward but if you're thinking about the the prescribing cascade and when you're looking at a person who's in front of you and you're you're thinking about their medications. I think it's important to sort of stop and always sort of look at the medications and you know wonder if these potentially could be leading to prescribing cascade. And if they are you would the way you might identified as understanding the sequence of events that has developed in terms of how that came to be. And then you'd have to ask you know. Take a look at the initial medication like for example in this case the inside and you might ask first off. Do they need that medicine. Is it something that they need it. All could there be non pharmacologic approach could the dose be lowered or another therapy. That could be used instead that wouldn't result in such a prescribing cascade..

"What did you get put on next to be able to help understand that And in in fact it was a very interesting paper that was led by katina piggott. Who talked about using Process maps to help identify this sort of thing. So you're able to basically illustrate draw sketches and figures about sequences of events to see how these patterns might emerge because they think unless you think about it and sort of asked specifically about it and look for sequences events. It's very easily missed and prescribing cascades. Very common do we know how common they are. So i think prescribing cascades are really common when we first started looking at this. I think we identified about three different prescribing cascades. And that's what got us thinking about it. But it's a pattern that you see so often if you really look for and when we wrote about it a couple of years ago i think we we identified over twenty different prescribing cascades and end that number has multiplied many times. Since that time as new therapies come on the market. They'll continue to be identified. Because it's it's sort of. It's a pattern that keeps repeating itself we've also When we've looked at prescribing cascades. We initially were looking at a drug leading to a side effect. That was that was missed. And then as a result of that New medical condition and another drug prescribed. We've also realized that it it also relates to drugs that are being given our or taken over the counter so it's not just a prescribed medicine so there's many of these you know as a physician you may not see unless you really ask about. What other kinds of medications an individual is taken and it can also lead to the use of a medical device. So you know. The the peace we've talked about is is one component of the prescribing cascade. And there's many such prescribing cascade but there's other pieces to it as well that i think are important so let's just stick with them with drugs..

"Driving through the countryside. In Vermont where for a few years I spent happy summers. My heartfelt fall from all the abundant green green trees green fields mountain so green. They were blue in the distance. All of it filled me up with joy like fresh air in the lungs and filled my busy head with a beautiful ample quiet. The site of a Red Barn on those drives made me inexplicably happy. I'm still not sure why because each one looked so much like a Red Barn is supposed to look like the toy barn. I played with child with its plastic chicken and cow and duck occasionally. I'd lay is on an old abandoned farmhouse or shed hollowed out looking and leaning dangerously to the side. Sometimes it would be shot through with growing things like bushes or weedy climbing vines and I knew instantly that when all is said and done here on the planet it is not the humans or even the animals but the other life forms that will win. Why such a thought should have made me glad I do not know given our brief human life spans and all our failings. Perhaps it gave me hope to see something I know and love doing a better job at the enterprise of survival or maybe it was simply the incongruous beauty of seeing flowers and weeds holding up a structure that had no hope of standing on its own.

Do you have one outside of Acadia that you think get overlooked bit? Because I give you an example, this I was going through the badlands a couple months ago. And I just thought like, I know this is here, and I've been to at once before is like a fifteen year old, and, you know, actually, didn't like I said to my buddy. Oh, yeah. It was cool. But then we went back, and it's like, whoa. This is way better than the first time. I was here. And I just thought it crazy to me that this doesn't get more, publicity or more visitors because I put it on par with some of the best places. I had been when it comes national parks. Do you? Do you have one that you think this is it outshines kind of the popularity that it might, you know, might have it probably deserves a little more. Yeah. So I used to say IRA national park in Utah. That I started saying that about fifteen years ago. So you're the one who started this trend. I blame Instagram, but. Now, it's now the third most visited as of two thousand seventeen is the third most visited national park in the United States. I'm actually working on a new book desire on as we speak that will come out next spring, but really for a long time. And I was just hanging out with somebody who's from you know, he he's a sort of a descendant of one of the original pioneer families that settled Springvale the town outside Zion on and he was telling me when I was growing up as a kid in the nineteen sixties Zion was the sort of park that nobody knew where it was. And you know, what was not nearly as famous as other places. He's like, but it was ours in Utah. Was it was hours? You know? It was it was our park that nobody else cared about or loved end. Now. Completely flipped. Everybody's discovered that it's this wonderland of outdoor adventure. Now, if I was gonna land next one went when we talk ten years from now, what's what's going to be the next one? So. Interesting, you know, park that came to my attention recently was north cascades in Washington, and it's about three hours from Seattle. And it gets I think it's something like under thirty thousand visitors a year. Now, remember, the big national parks. Get you know, two three million visitors a year, that's because north cascades you to access it. You really got to go on foot. You got a backpack. There's sort of a level of difficulty to get there. But the landscapes are just stunning. And this really, you know that plays into and I don't want to say that the only one I think the Channel Islands are incredible. They are off the coast of southern California, you know, the most populist one in most populous areas in the United States, and we've got the Galapagos of North America right off shore for some reason everybody ignores it, you know, there's lots of places like that sequoia and kings canyon. Those are great national parks on par with Yosemite. But you're seventy gets all the attention. Getting back to the north cascades in how you have to hike in. This is really key to visiting a lot of national parks. You know, everyone is aware that there are now there's huge visitation at the top national parks. You know, talk ten are just packed. It's becoming a bit of an issue in certain places. A really the way I look at it it it's no concentration problem. Everybody's going to the same, you know, famous viewpoint or three famous viewpoints, and they're all sort of packing in.
