Coronavirus infection rates continue to rise in the U.S.

"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds. That is what we are running out of in rural minnesota and all over the country. Here's the first column in that same paper today. Case rates skyrocket in the region again. That's west central minnesota. Here's the front page of the news star in monroe louisiana blunt headline hospitals overwhelmed. Here's the front page in grand junction colorado. Today the daily sentinel county says. Icu beds are full. Here's the front. Page in muncie indiana. Today the star. Press in muncie. Indiana hospitals cove in nineteen rates. Sores in indiana go to wyoming. The casper star tribune today casper wyoming deaths rise by record number. Something has got to turn this around kentucky. Here's the lexington kentucky paper. The herald leader kentucky sets staggeringly high new record for coronavirus cases. Go to new mexico the albuquerque journal today cova cases explode up in washington state bellingham herald. State virus rate's the worst since the beginning of pandemic all over the country right and as as overwhelming as this crisis is may now tonight. We've just learned that. The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune. Today i was actually a pretty good snapshot of what the heck we as americans are supposed to do with the twin disasters. We've got all at once and look at the front page at the minneapolis star tribune today a raging forest fire virus sweeps minnesota state to get ambulances from fema for surge importantly those are staffed ambulances so ambulance with their crews from fema going into minnesota to help them deal with patients and the need to move patients in hospitals.

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt

"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans

The moves give president trump still commander in chief more freedom to act especially overseas esperer posed pulling all. Us troops from afghanistan and syria. Both may now be on the cards. I think there are two prongs to this action. One is simple. Vengeance and the other is opening operational flexibility for international operations that he feels could benefit him politically.

Amid Pandemic, Airlines Forge a New Survival Metric: Daily Cash Burn

"Tomorrow and the days to follow. We'll bring a peek inside the books of the Big Airlines Delta United American and southwest will report earnings and there's a phrase you will undoubtedly here around as they detail how they are getting through the pandemic cash burn. And among the many questions we have is how long can you burn cash when there is so very little of it coming in we as marketplace's into your to explain. A company's cash burn rate measures how quickly IT spending its financial reserves the International Air Transport Association says. Airlines will burn through more than seventy seven, billion dollars during the second half of this year Brian Pierces that group chief economist most companies particularly, airlines just don't have revenues coming in, but they can't get rid of all of their cost at the moment. So they are running down there cash balances. In the bank they opening cash at a rate of many millions of day last quarter. Delta. Reported a daily burn rate of twenty, seven million dollars but I just found out that airlines calculate cash burn differently. Yeah. That was news to me as well. Read Snyder runs the airline industry blog cranky flier as figured casper and it's okay we had this much cash. Now we have this much cash but no. They're all kinds of little carve-outs in in differences between the airlines whether an airline includes principal payments or debt service payments in their cash burn will tell a different story to investors but no matter how the numbers calculated unrelenting cash burn means more debt former airline executive and industry analyst Robert Man puts it this way you go to the red to place by a bunch of furniture and burden. Slough to pay for it ultimately, but you brought it expenses don't go away just because people aren't flying but jack her shoe follows distress businesses for SNP global market intelligence says the airlines are in better shape than they're letting on. They've got almost uniformly more than a year and some cases more than two years of running room with cash as it currently stands in the balance sheet before they end up in trouble because before the pandemic hit, the industry was making enough cash to burn.

Sigma Prime with Mehdi Zerouali

"Hey everyone my name's Matty I'm a CO founder and director of Sigma Prime We are an information security consultancy mostly based out of Australia being hiring a bunch of people all over the world lately. We've been around for about full years providing security assessment services to a lot of blockchain projects working. Almost exclusively lately on. Iridium. Providing security assessment on smart contracts on a lot of protocol. Layer developments. And I guess we are here to talk about Easter 'cause we are also the founders and maintainers of light hops arrest implementation of the. Two point plano specification thanks for having. A real quick. What would you say the? Technical advantage or differentiator lighthouse has over other there to. Invitations. a question question it. We that quite often we because of of the the company we're in information security consultancy we take security very seriously. We'd like to think that we've incorporated security into our development lifecycle very early on. So would like to think that our clients is probably one of the hopefully safest was secure clients out there it's written in Ross Ross is particularly fast. So the focus has also been on the fullness speeds and as I mentioned security So that's probably what differentiates from the rest of the other teams. Get a moment to pitch chill out to private the process of lighthouses. Good nells offended A. that. The approach here is the kind of. Break down the concept of theorem to what's going on and what users can expect so. I'm not exactly sure how I want to do this the the conversations going to naturally evolve I think but like if you had to give the. Highest of high. Level overviews of the transition from ethylene S to. Or just say. Okay. Let's have this. So, F one is the proof of work chain that we all love us and as you all probably know, the plan was always to transition to approve of stay consensus mechanism. So namely. Casper, if g so the research team has been working on this. If your foundation research you had been working on this for the past four, five, six years and mentors have been developing the. Specification, turning it into actual usable software. For the past two and a half years. The main difference as mentioned is the consensus mechanism. So moving away from proof of work, which is a quite a west full way of coming to consensus if you ask me. I know this can be quite polarizing community, but this is basically how Paul my co founder got started on Lighthouse I think ethereal currently uses as much electricity as Costa. Rica, if I'm not mistaken. And we think sigma prime. That is so. Much. Better ways of coming to consensus. And kost perfect is one of them. So super excited about the environmental impact of the transition from steak and this transition will happen gradually. we'll be shipping if to in various phases. So phase zero is the first phase that will be introduced hopefully a few weeks I a couple months. The latest set ladies year is what we're aiming for. and. This introduces consensus change. Right is introduces the proof of stake consensus mechanism Gasparilla Gene, and we essentially call these chain, the beacon chain, and you can see as this orchestrate. That gives the pulse of the network to Valley daters, giving them tasks, rewarding them when they do their job correctly. Penalizing them when they don't etc, etc.. That's phase zero. That's what I guess. All client teams are working on at the moment and. Phase One will hopefully come shortly up and phase one introduces shards, the concept of shod. So Ethier two point Oh will be shotted blockchain meaning that will have. Sixty four sub block changing see them as sort of independent blockchain's that are all linked and tides with each other through five that consensus mechanism in the beacon. Check. So. Once we have that will be effectively using those shards just as dot availability layers we won't. Have State transitions or users of smart contracts or transactions as we are all familiar with in if one that will come in light up so talks about phase one point five, which hopefully will. Get one into each to and have that as a separate dedicated shot. In face to. Will introduce I, guess proper state execution and smart contracts, and this is when will actually have a blockchain usable blockchain developers as we all relative with them when you hear him on. That makes sense.

This Am a Minstrel Stereotype, Right?

"From New York City this is Lexicon Valley. A podcast about language I'm John Mc, water and this week you know what I'm going to do frankly what I usually do, which is just bring you in what was I thinking about over the past week or two? And it was a bunch of things but I happened to be revising an academic paper that I'm writing and that paper happens to be about black English I don't usually do those but I mean exception with this one because it's a topic that really grabs me and you know when deciding what to do the show about I thought you know I'm going to do what I'm thinking about I. Don't WanNa, do it about Comma Harris or something like that I'm not. Sure. What I could get out of that I wanNA do me and so I'm gonNA share with you some stuff about the always fascinating dialect of American English black. English. It's called by academics usually. African American vernacular English but I have a hard time saying that so we're just going to call it black English and we're GONNA, look at it from various angles that I have been sitting around laying around still in semi quarantine these days and one of the things is. GonNa be the lost. Am That's what my papers about, and this is something that I've brought up on this show before, and that is the question as to whether actual black. American people ever as linguists call it over generalized an in two persons and numbers beyond where it would go and standard English and so for example, I'll tell you I am a person but in characters of black speech back in the day, the idea was that black people used am with all. Pronouns, and so you am this he am that we and the other thing that's something associated with minstrel shows and comic strips, and you would think you would quite reasonably think that that's something that white performers made up as a way of making fun of black people. That's what I thought for a very long time. But after a while various indications seem to suggest to me that actually wait a minute black people did once us am in a different way than mainstream. English does, and of course, it wasn't all black people but there have always been different ways of speaking even here in America and it seemed to me that well, you know as I'm always telling all of you language always changes and black English is no exception and so it seemed to me maybe actually the minstrels overdid it they were characterizing but maybe there was that different usage of an because all these things seemed indicated and in a show that I did. Probably back in about nineteen forty seven remember when I used to be sponsored by kraft macaroni and cheese way back. Then I said that one evidence of this is that there are vernacular British dialects. The US am in just that way you am we am the black country in Britain is sometimes called the people who are the Yam yams and what they mean by that is that they say you am saw gave you some evidence of that but that was that was. Back right after the Second World War and so what about newer evidence? Well, first of all, what do I mean by this as you might call it over generalized am well, here is one of the latest examples of it in pop culture. This is a highly insignificant. Hollywood. Cartoon from the studio that gave us such indelible characterizations as Casper, the friendly ghost and Herman and Catnip who were about the closest thing in real life to itchy and scratchy on the simpsons in. Any case, one of their other indelible characters was buzzy the Crow Buzzy. The Crow was supposed to clearly supposed to be this this black American little character remember the Dumbo crows while Buzzy was an extension of that, and so buzzy uses reflections of the old minstrel dialect. This is a cartoon called no IFS ands or buts, but spelled with two t's it's about smoking and this is what buzzy says about a cat who seems to have a smoking addiction listened closely. Tobacco smoking. To know. That Cat am Am Can am smokin fiend. Okay. So that's the character. But what's interesting is how often you see black American people depicted as speaking that way in many sources that you might think of authoritative and I have something even better than this is going to build up to a big fine. We're we're circling in. We're we're about to find the real thing but some other stuff. That I've found. So for example, there is a novel written by a Black Man, very conscious as we used to say black man eighteen, ninety, nine it's called imperium in Imperio, and the guy's name is Sutton griggs and for whatever it's worth his father was a Georgia slave. So Sutton griggs eighteen nine, he's post emancipation but he would have heard authentic black speech, the speech of. People who were denied education and what's interesting is that in one of his novels he is writing in very serious vain. We would today call him a black nationalist and he has seen where there's a black mother who is being humiliated by a racist white schoolteacher and she's trying to present her child and defend her child and what she says, and this is a black. Writer of black nationalist stamp who grew up with a father who had been at slave and not in New York City but in Georgia so we're talking about wear black English really arose and I WANNA say throws but that's not the were because it's thrived and so he has the mother saying about her child her son, his name and Belton Piedmont arteries, granddaddy arteries after so. Not His name is built in Piedmont his name and Belton Piedmont and she's a character of dignity. His name in Belton Piedmont not is built in Piedmont am. Arteries. granddaddy. What's Ardour ardor is after and shows how authentic this depiction of speech is in that we know that not only black people but also again regional vernacular speaking British people used arter and explains that problem with Jack and Jill. So Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail of water jack fell down and broke his Crown Jill. Came Tumbling after what the Hell is. That is that the best they can do of course, not it was Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling out. After, because, after can become after. After that is the way many people in for example, Yorkshire still say after October it's dialectal after and so they're always many people who said after and he came here and often they were either slave owners or they worked alongside slaves and so early biking, which has

Esper defends use of National Guard in helping with civil unrest after George Floyd death

"Defense Secretary Mark Casper defended his decision to use National Guard soldiers in support of law enforcement agencies during the civil unrest triggered by the killing of George Floyd. Yesterday, he testified before the House Armed Services Committee. The guard did not advance on the crowd. At the guard did not shoot rubber bullets. At the guard did not employ chemical agents of any type. Under particular scrutiny is the handling of the situation at Lafayette Square June 1st when peaceful protesters were cleared of the area. Tens of thousands of troops were immobilized around the country to help with crowd control, including thousands from 11 states sent into the D C area and another 700 active duty troops who are stage in Maryland and Virginia in case of emergency

NIH Chief Gives Update On The Coronavirus In The U.S.

"Day, another record set across the United States 59,000 new Corona virus cases recorded yesterday, breaking the record again for a single day high for new infections, and that number capture surges in states from Texas to California, Florida to West Virginia. So where are we in the ark of the pandemic? Is there any glimmer of hope going to and how to square disconnects in the guidance coming from our political leaders and our most senior scientists? Questions we're going to put to one of our country's most senior scientists were going to spend this whole segment of the program questioning Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr Collins, Welcome back Good to speak with you again. Nice to be on your program. Mary Louise, So 59,000 new cases in one day. If I had told you back in March there February that that's where we would be as a nation in July, Would you have believed me? I would certainly have hoped not. We knew back in March and April that we had hit a terrible peak of infections, and we worked really hard across the nation to try to figure out How to flatten that curve and to bring that down, and we never really got it down. And now it's certainly headed up again in a way that is really quite alarming. I mean, hindsight always is 2020. But if there were one thing you wish we could go back and redo what would it be? You know, I think we learned what we needed to do in terms of social distancing in terms of wearing masks in terms of being very careful about public gatherings, especially indoors. But those were applied in a somewhat spotty fashion. People basically got tired of it, but the virus didn't get tired of spreading. And I'm afraid as things over the course of the last couple of months opened up. They weren't always following the CDC guidelines in the way that we would have hoped, and now we're starting to reap the consequences. And I particularly concerned that younger people feeling that maybe they're not so much a risk have felt much less likely to adhere to those guidelines. And have therefore been getting infected in larger numbers and then spreading it on to their neighbors, their families and particularly vulnerable people who we now are quite worried about to to where things might go next, Dr Anthony found. She warned last week that we could be on track to see 100,000 new cases a day. I interviewed him right after that, and he told me he dropped that number to jolt people to try to get our attention what she did. But have you seen anything in the weeks since he said it That suggests we are not heading for that outcome. Well, Dr Fauci is my colleague and I both worked at the National Institutes of Health. I'm actually his boss, although he is, of course, the most highly regarded public health spokesperson about this Outbreak. So when he speaks, people listen and well, they should. If you look at the shape of that curve and just do your extrapolation like you would in math class, you would say, having now hit just about 60,000 that there's no sign that that's topping out. And so his prediction I fear might in fact, turn out to be true, But we have things we condone about that. And that's where I'm hoping, Despite the anxiety that now spreads across the land again that we should not feel powerless that we are in a circumstance where we could try once again to flatten that curve by taking all of those recommendations about masks about social distancing about avoiding Being close together, especially indoors and see if we can do something to prevent this from going even further, obviously particularly important in places where we can see the community spread has gotten really quite out of control. Like Arizona. Ah, like California like Texas like Florida. But other places should not feel immune. The time to make those actions most effective is before you have a really widespread community problems. So I look in your own community see what's happening. If there's a hint that things were starting up again, everybody should take action. And so should the government leaders that have a chance to do something at that. Woo that to your earlier point, though, which is the guidance was out there in the spring and Individuals weren't paying attention. We got tired of it and elected officials were reopening anyway, Do you What gives you confidence that the advice that the best guidance from the CDC and another on other agencies will be heated now? Well, I guess I'm an eternal optimist. And so I will say when people are faced with reality, and you can't look at the current circumstance and not admit we've got a real problem. That perhaps this hope for sort of outcome that okay, it's summertime. And maybe this won't be such a problem. We've gotten past that. That's no longer the case. Anybody who's trying to Pretend we can just fake our way through this. We're not succeeding at that. So it's time to wake up. Look at those recommendations get serious again recognize that it's up to all of us, and we're Americans, and ultimately, we usually do the right thing. This is the right time to do that. Speaking of recommendations, I do want to ask you about schools and the debate raging over whether to reopen them. President Trump and other administrations have been downplaying the recommendations of their own health. Experts who will have seen the president tweeting that safety measures recommended by the CDC. Things like you just nodded to, like wearing masks and spacing. Student desks apart, he says. These air expensive they're impractical. Do you stand behind the CDC recommendations? I think CDC is our nation's expert group in public health, and we should take their recommendations as the recommendation we should follow. I mean, it is. It is complicated. Let's be clear if you're talking about students going back to school in Casper, Wyoming, where there are very few of any cases. That's a very different story than if you're talking about students going back to school in Houston, which is in the middle of a very serious outbreak, so blanket recommendations, saying everybody should do the same thing fly in the face of the reality of where we are with this outbreak, But CDC has recommendations to try to adjust to that. I think most of the school experts are looking at those Also worth looking at the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Here is a very distinguished group. That is worried as I am, as we all should be about the consequences of kids not being in school. That's a serious issue. Kids are basically being harmed by the absence of social interactions, losing up all kinds of time in terms of their learning curves. We do want kids back in school where those good things can happen, but everything in life is a benefit and a risk. And the risks are going to depend a lot on where you are at this point and how much that virus is spreading around, and that just has to be factored into the decisions. Ultimately, it's gonna have to be the local authorities that make That kind of judgment. I hear you're choosing your words carefully on. I do want to ask you since since we already brought up Dr Fauci. You and he streamed an online conversation earlier this week, which I watched. It was informative. Thank you for that. It also got some buzz because a lot of journalists have been complaining that they cannot get an interview with Dr Fauci. Here's a taste of that We have not been able to get our requests for Dr Fauci approved by the Trump administration. In the last three months, high profile figures from the task force, including Dr Fauci have been unable to secure White House permission to appear on American TV networks. I just want to let you respond to that, because, as you noted, your Dr Fauci is boss to your knowledge is here. Anybody else who's message on public health conflicts with the administration's message? Are they being prevented from talking freely? I think every administration has always had an interest in making sure that people who work for the government if they're going to make a presentation to the public, that there is some consultation about that. I do that as well. When I'm going to have this Kind of a conversation like we're having right now, but I have not been canceled feelings that you can't speak to a TV network. I need to run. That invitation passed to be sure that the administration is aware of it and that they don't have any particular issues with the request. That's been the case for every administration since I've been in the government, which is 27 years. Return you to vaccines in a couple of minutes we have left this week, The government announced $1.6 billion contract to a company to manufacture a Corona virus vaccine. This company. Novavax, though, does not have a product that has been proven. Toe work, which made me think that feels like an awfully big bet to place on something unproven. Why is that the right path if you think that is the right path. Oh, I think it is the right path. Mary Louise. I think What we're trying to do here is to have a lot of potential shots on goals. This vaccine is going to be our best hope to get past this terribly difficult year of 2020 And the more that we have multiple different scientific strategies, the more likely we are that at least one and maybe several of them will work. The Novak strategy is basically to make a protein sub unit. It's different than what's happening with the other vaccines that are about to get started in the next month or two with their phase three trials. And so it is hedging their bets. It's trying as you would, I think, want to when something is a really serious issue, and you want to be sure you succeed. Make sure you've tried several things that you have a menu of opportunities that's going to cover all of the scientific basis, and Novavax brings another one. To the table, so we're glad to have them in the team. If I hear you right? It sounds like it's it's possible. This might be money thrown down the drain. But at this point we don't have something proven, and we have to work towards something. So we're goingto as you said, had hedge your bets. That's exactly right on. I think that's probably what the public would want us to do At a time like this, where I mean, if it wasn't such a rush, we might try one vaccine. And then six months later go Oh, that one wasn't quite what we wanted and then try another one. And it could be five years or more before we actually had the answer. We don't have time for that. Think the public doesn't expect us to be doing the slow boat here, so the idea is to have several of these to invest in them expect that some of those monies are actually not going to pay off. But one of them will maybe more than one will. Ultimately, I think that's what the public is expecting. And what we're trying to deliver. Speaking of operation Slow boat and not wanting to go there. We just have 30 seconds or so left. But how do you reassure people that With the speed that this operation is being developed. The whole thing is called Operation Warp speed to try to get a vaccine that it will also be safe. Well, I want to assure everybody about that The speed is being done by basically doing in parallel things that otherwise would have been done in a Siri's of steps, but every step is being carried out with rigor and intensity. Before we have to go. Let me just say anybody who's interested by the way and signing up for a vaccine trial because they're about to get under a going to give you a Uriel Carell correctness prevention network dot org's okay.

The podcast academy later on in the show, which is why we have you here, but we're also have all kinds of really fun things to to touch base on starting with some like some podcasting news and rumors, so you rob greenlee just shared with us something that neither Robin knew so what's going on with level later? We'll get an update. To their Libya leading software. This is amazing it's. It's one of the simplest tools to to use with. Your way files level now, but this is a really old tool. It was created by Doug K. back in two thousand five I believe and It got an update to support the latest version of. The MAC os so that's exciting. It's now for Catalina. Yea, thank you, thank you doubt you. So. I'm sure you can get just by going to later on. That's just how it sounds L.. E. V. E., L., A. T., O., R.! I believe something like that Sharon.

Stick it in it, and it spits it out nicely. Love elated afterwards, which is It just allows loudness novels of your files to talk. Out Yeah. And it's still early. It's free. That's amazing. Oh my God, so am also now into some other news. What's going on with Sirius? Xm. Acquired simple cast show so Sirius Xm Pandora Edge results required, simple cast since the last episode or announced the Acquisition Goodness Gracious, all kinds of shopping going on. So, what do you think that? Backup it's just another indication of the streaming streaming music platforms getting more into podcasting. There's no questions what that means and you know. We said it would be more and more acquisitions simple on the on the block for a little bit of time, so not not surprising to see that they got acquired How do you think that simple cast is going to be used as a property of this larger conglomerate? Or look little bit up in the air. If you think about how simple cast is different than, let's say like an anchor with spotify anchor. spotify was free, so but You know the other one here is is paid so simple casts is a paid service, so I don't know if if Pandora's going to convert to a free model with simple cast, or if they're going to keep it a paid model that I think that's the biggest question of having my mind, instead they might be using it for in house things I would assume, but who knows I mean I'm just intrigued as aware fits because just like you're saying. It's slightly different like I didn't. I'm not sure like I wanna see what goes on with with simple Casper's sure they've done some really wonderful things when it comes to the community and whatnot, but not just not just acquisitions going on, but there's some rumors happening between between what am I. These guys have changed their name so many different times that I always forget like what everything is so. What's up with stitcher in mid roll and Omni? Rumor is they are in have been up for sale from scripts, and they've been shopping around, and and so that that is the rumor. That's out there and we'll see this. It's been reported multiple places. Inside sources and All kinds of stuff so We'll see what happens there, but we said it beginning the YOU'RE GONNA see more deals announced throughout this year. and. You can actually read more about this. There's there's an article on Google to a search for Stitcher I'm sure you'll find some articles that have popped up about it. If you want to read more about it, it's just a sign of the consolidation and changes in the industry which are going on all the time, so.

Why men may have more severe COVID-19 symptoms, and using bacteria to track contaminated food

"Welcome, science. I've Casper June two thousand and twenty I'm Sarah Crespi. First up this speak staff writer Meredith. Bodman discusses a link between Corona. Virus, sex hormones and male pattern baldness. It turns out. This link might be behind the higher numbers of men dying from the infection next we have researcher Jason Chen he talks about a system for tracking objects using DNA. Bar coded bacterial spores. We spray the spores on something like lettuce, and then if you ever need to know where that led us came from, perhaps if it was contaminated with dangerous bacteria, you can collect the spores and read out the bar. Now, Ashraf writer Meredith Bodman. She wrote this week in science on a potential source of the male bias. We've been seeing in severe cases of Corona. Virus even corona virus deaths. Hi Meredith Hi Sarah. How are you? I'm okay I. GonNa, Say Okay for now this has been a mysterious, but persistent skew, and the number of deaths with regards to men. How big is the spy us? Well, it's considerable on. It's consistent from the very first days that we getting reports out of Ruhan China. Men have been made sicker by covid nineteen in the died at higher rates than women. From covid nineteen at the same time, children have been largely spared that two lines up with this theory that some researchers putting forward that Andrew Johns which are male hormones may have a role to play in how badly people get sick from woven So there's this new research linking sex hormones and the severity of coronavirus. Where did this idea come from? At first blush. It really landed with a paper that was published in cell online in early March. And it designated or describe a role for a particular enzyme that is bound in cell membranes called temperatures to. And it is an enzyme that cleaves the spy protein on the virus, and in doing that it allows the virus to enter host cells, so it's important for viral entry now. A bunch of prostate cancer researchers looked at the cell pay per and said Whoa. Wait a minute. We know that protein know that protein. They knew the protein because years ago. It was described as being culprit in prostate cancer, this very same t. m., P. R. S. S. two or temperature to enzyme in a mutated form. It was discovered early in this century was responsible for about fifty percent of prostate cancers PSA. Prostate researchers were intimately familiar with this this enzyme in one of the things. Things, they knew about it was that it was controlled by male hormones. At least in the prostate gland, known as Andrew Jackson's of which testosterone as the most famous, actually increased the production of this enzyme in the prostate gland when the enzyme was in a mutated form, it causes prostate cancer, basically in simple definition, and so from that you can take away that if you have more testosterone or other androgen, you're going to have more of temptress to, and so that's kind of the thinking behind this that you might have something that makes it easier for infection to take place, absolutely more tempus to on the cell membrane more opportunities for the virus to knock an inter-. It's almost that simple. Though, of course, it's way more complicated, but basically right and there's there's some other interesting observations that a link to this in your story, and one of them out relates to male pattern baldness. How does that fit in? There's not a clear scientific explanation for why it would be that a couple of studies in Spain have observed that man with male pattern baldness seemed to be over represented in male patients who are hospitalized with covid nineteen, and that's not related to age. No, interestingly, the peak baldness decade among these Spanish patients was in the fifties. Fifties whereas male baldness, typically as most common in the eighties or even older, and there's a link between baldness and temperatures. Well, that's what's not entirely clear. What is known is that one very powerful male hormone named dihydrotestosterone or D. H. T. for short, which is a derivative of testosterone, is abundant and thought to be causative of male pattern baldness. When there's lots of it in the SCALP, it's not causative on its own. It also take some genetic predisposition had a couple of conditions, but one of them is high levels of this hormone dht, and that is. Is the hormone that returning to the prostate we know binds androgen receptor, which in turn kicks up production of T.. N., P. R. S. to compress too

Stephanie Educator Aficionado and Michael Programmer took a good afternoon. Stephanie how are you? I'm fine and we are surviving? How about you the same happy Cinco de Mayo? Time are listening listening to this. It's probably probably already celebrity. Cinco de Mayo having a Margarita. Anyway he's actually what else you got today. How many people are making tacos tonight for dinner? We taco Tuesday in single tomorrow. This is the thing right. Everybody's Yeah I don't do. I've talked to us. I should make tacos anyway. So lots lots going on in the world. I guess I I saw this recent start like before we we hit record. I noticed the story of the tweeted through the Times which all the coronavirus stuff is supposedly ray me seventeen clicks to get logged in. And let's see a but the title is with Crisper a possible quick test for the virus it looks like they're using crisper to test for for carnivores for covert ninety. I noticed something about that. I was looking into that and Yeah I think there's a lot of different applications for using crisper. You can test for different. Antibodies are you. Can you can engineer a a a gene. That will basically glow under simplify. It'll basically glow if it recognizes the One of the antibodies from Corona virus. And so it could be a really simple way to get that test out there and have it be more accurate than maybe what they're dealing with. Now Sarel yes that's exciting. Everybody's YEAH SPURT UP CASPER AT RYAN.

I hope she doesn't have any sentence now. She just works. Used US going to the office in a lab.

No more carnivorous onboard board occurred something else out there in the world. There's a the world is fine. No you know as Americans. We always it.

I'm sure yeah. So why is everybody concerned about the murder Hornets? Is it really a big deal? Is this just something else that you know. The media is pushing us to distract us from whatever else is really happening. Should we concerns? So what have you heard about murder Hornets? So far I honestly. I've tried not to read it up hundred Hornets. Because I wasn't really looking for more in my life I'm spending so much more time outside now from omb and like normally all you'll be going trip or visit grandparents or we you know indoor soccer whatever it is. We're doing now slow. Go play in the backyard so the kids get actually retired for bedtime. So you're telling me there's more murder Hornets there. Yeah I'm sorry to burst your bubble but now now we've gotta worry about the Asian Murder Hornets so don't get too Scared about it yet. As of right now they're reported sightings are all the way on the other side of year and We started in in Vancouver and now in Washington. There was a beef farmer. He had a nest and back in November. He went to check on his honeybees and discovered that his entire very healthy beehive with completely destroyed. They were healthy the day before then. He went to go check on the next day and basically he started looking at them and all of their little beheads were cut off his head on Teamer Hornets too. Yeah they are murder. Hornets necessarily because they murder humans. All this is this is violence. I don't need to worry about right. Yes well you know you definitely would not enjoy getting stung by a to inch long Hornets. That is not something that you want to have happen to you. Although scientists from the nineteen th century right. I'm not just out there leading. Bees and spiders stigma right. I guarantee you. Some people are out there trying to test it. I think there's a guy on on youtube somewhere. That has already films himself. Getting stung by a murder Hornet. Just see what would happen surprise. It hurts jackass movie this year. Isn't there Jack Ass movie coming out this year? This isn't this isn't related to that right now it might be. It could be a completely. You know publicity stunt for there are no hornets. That's just the jackass movie. Yeah they're murder. Hornets not necessarily because they murder humans but because they murder other bees and so they can take out an entire hive of bees. In just a few hours they They go in and they. Yeah they basically decapitate all of the bees and take over their nest as do they parade around them ca carrying their heads and spikes put them a little little Little twigs and stuff outside of the. Yeah Yeah so they're pretty. They're pretty deadly. Each Hornet can kill one. Be in every fourteen seconds using its powerful. Amanda Bowles to decapitate decapitated its prey. Oh and I guess so. Those beer are these are we. Arming these BS. How we find him back. How are we protecting the goodies for Hornets are pollinating? Hornets are not pollinating. So yeah this is. This could potentially be a really big problem. This is more more concerning than actually getting stung by the B. Is what effect will it have on the honeybees here in the United States who are already struggling to pollinate all of the things that we need? Pollinated your I already. We already had anxiety about the honeybees. We don't even more right. Yeah so yeah. So what are we gonNA do about these honeybees Years so you know there it. These these murder Hornets come from Japan. And so the problem is that whenever you have an invasive species come from one ecosystem into another ecosystem it's not bringing necessarily its natural predators with it

So flip it to turn it off beanies out for a walk. But I'm gonna flip it around. And now beanie see a sense that automatically beanies back home in idle. I could change my wakeup time. As I said eleven thirty A m I can group beanie with other glows. So they glow together. And then I also have some direct controls over how bright beanie is overall. And I see I have a kind of a little bit dimmer. I don't like it too. And when I flip it over for bedtime. I could say, oh, you could take an hour and a half to to turn down or thirty minutes.

"Shooting and plasma cool this this t projects are there's like casper their shepherding and there's plasma cover plasma indep doing this episode but could you give us a sense of what these projects are and how they connect sure so i guess i will start with casper casper is a proof of stake protocol which has been in the works at the foundation for multiple years and essentially what it does is it forms consensus on the route ethereal chain and what that means is it basically provides this guarantee around a transaction or block ordering and it says okay this is the one history and reverting this one history is very costly and so the the kind of design space around this is okay let's make it so that we have the most quote unquote secure blockchain aka the blockchain that resists censorship the best and it also you know the history will not change under your feet and these are the kinds of concerns around casper so that is like the security side of things then scharping is where we take the the kind of casper protocol and we make it so that it secure is not just one small bit of of data we make it secure a huge amount of information so we basically pump up the throughput of this blockchain you know drastically and so we want to instead of you know doing ten fifteen transactions per second we want one hundred fifty or thousand five hundred and and you know continue from there and then finally we have plasma and plasma is essentially a design pattern a space of designs which allow you to kind of create your own scalable blockchain and run it you know maintain it yourself however you get these security benefits of the main theorem chain so that means that you know the current proof of work security which is pretty good and then eventually the proof of stake casper security which will be even better and so you get the the security of the main chain while being able to deploy your own.
