A cove in nineteen resource written by Jonathan Harrison and read by William Tissue. This current COVID. Nineteen crisis has shaken up the end of the semester even more than most students could have even imagined. Since my university went online to the rest of the semester so much has changed. Events and programs that were being planned since last school year have been canceled. Phone outdoor adventures with the onset of spring are postponed. Classes have transitioned to completely online settings. The way I would best some up. This time is unexpected significant change but this change can lead to many ways of unexpected growth while adjusting to this new normal for the foreseeable future. These couple of weeks adjusting to the world of online classes has allowed me to take some time in reflecting on the past present and future. In college time seems to fly and changes that occur overtime sometimes just seem to pop up. Yet in these weeks of change time hasn't been flying by and things aren't happening as smoothly but that's okay. Perfectly fine if adjusting to this new normal takes longer than it might have a college. In, my reflecting a few thoughts stuck with me as particularly helpful in this unexpected journey. One. Recognizes okay to feel upset but find a balance. In the midst of this crazy uncertainty, I'm sure many college students like myself initially thought about the immediately important things getting their things from their dorm. How they were getting home and what online classes would be like. It was in this time that a friend challenge me to take a few minutes and be present to my actual feelings. He understanding this balance of my feelings was essential to maintaining my self care while so recognizing the larger perspective. To. Have Consistency to a prayer routine. At College it is easier to have routines of when certain faith-based activities are or when there's a break between classes to find a chapel to pray. Even, with so much changing I found that finding a new plan prayer routine is an important first step. I I recommend finding a place at home that can be conducive for prayer. Make it your sacred space. Then try to find a consistent time that works for you. For me this was requiring some trial and error I used to try every day after lunch. But now it's during a gap in my online classes. I this non-negotiable time for prayer can help build a sense of normalcy in your new schedules. Three. Utilize online resources. Classes have opened my eyes to the world of online meaning platforms with many great features and purposes. Use these resources outside of just class. I have seen these online meetings used in many great spiritually empowering ways. Bible Studies Rosaries night prayer and really any form of prayer group I. also know I miss going masks my friends. These online platforms can also be used to stream online mass together. For Journal. I found that can really serve a twofold purpose. I as a form of processing journal and can be a great way of reflecting in can be an avenue for navigating through these uncertain in chaotic times. Secondly, AB way to come up with creative new ideas. This is a time when creativity can blossom into exciting ideas for the upcoming year and journaling can pump creativity force. From the time this Cova nineteen pandemic I began to ultra life in February. One particular prayer has been an unending source of peace for me. It is called the serenity. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. Courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.

episode 17 3 Tips To Overcome Fear And Anxiety
"Welcome to the do what you love. Podcast a podcast with a mixture of personal development and career. Advise del. You reach your full potential now over to your host life purpose champion. Amanda he'll welcome to another episode of the do what you love podcast. I'm your host Amanda. He'll today I'd like to talk to you about becoming fear and anxiety and offer three things that I do regularly in my life to overcome these. So why would we want to? I've come fear and anxiety and lives. Well firstly it stops us from doing things of spokane quite a bit about my fear of catching buses and this was a very practical thing which stopped me from getting out and about and traveling independently as a blind person fee of the on non. Stop us from trying new things so would fear failure. Another was a big one from eight so much easier not to try something and avoid the fear of failure than trying it and possibly failing furious. Speaking in front of paypal is another very common. That's not one that affects me but it's fix lots of people. I know your fear of job loss. Fear of illness. That's very relevant right now. In The Times of the coronavirus Sir fees can stop us from doing things but secondly another reason to overcome fear and anxiety is that fear anxiety produce a chemical reaction bodies. We have a hormone called Cortisol which is a stress hormone. That's the basis of our flight or fight response. It's meant Cape is safe. A couple of episodes guy. I was talking to Jackie Lefebvre's from magma effect about values and she gave the wonderful example about being in the jungle and being approached by a sabertooth tiger and however cortisol was meant. Cape IS SAFE. It stops us from stopping and looking at the Tiger and commenting on its teeth and whatnot and it just makes us runaway. And that's what's meant to do but most of the time we're not facing danger like that so what happens is because we can't run away physically run away from must've fees what the cortisol does is each limits or lowers our ability to think rationally and make good decisions but the other thing quotas. Oh does is it? Loas era means system. And that's why people who are constantly under high levels of stress more likely to get ill. Then people who aren't so every time we feel fear it loas our immune system cortisol levels go up and our immune systems. Go down just that little bit. Sorry how can we overcome fear and anxiety? There are three things that I do so the first thing I do when I'm feeling afraid of something is I think what's the worst that could happen putting it another way. Where does seat on the catastrophe scale? Is it like right up the top with something that will kill you? Is it sort of in the middle? It's pretty bad but it's not a disaster or is it down the bottom. Oh well you know it's really not that bad really thinking about it so taking my fear of catching masses. What's the worst that could happen? If I caught a bus well the worst that could happen is perhaps a catch the wrong bus. Perhaps I get lost. How bad is that on the catastrophe? Skull well it feels like the worst thing in the world when I'm in that situation but really it's not that bad. I can ask a passer by help. I can bring someone and say look lost. I don't know where I am. I can bring myself up on apple maps and see where on my fine so really. It's bad but it's not catastrophe. Fear of the unknown. Well yeah there are some potential bad things that could come up in the unknown and some of them could be catastrophic but most of them probably owned fierce speaking in front of Papal. I've heard many people say that they feel like they going to die and they wish that the flow would just open up and swallow them. I've never experienced that. You know I can literally took underwater. I've tried it and I'm really not afraid of talking to people. Little might be a little bit nervous about content very well but I could never describe it as via but what's the worst that could happen if you talking from a paper. Well they might laugh at you. Perhaps if you're not trying to be funny that would be a really bad thing. They might not laugh at you. If you're trying to be funny and the that wouldn't be great. They might think a little bit less of you when you finished. Whatever you're saying but it's not a catastrophe it's not as bad as it feels you're not GonNa die no one else. He's going to die and it will be really the end fear of job yet. That's pretty bad. That's that's a pretty bad one but it's not catastrophic. There are things that can be done. And I'll get onto that in my third point fear of illness. Well in this time of coronavirus. That's pretty bad up there on the Skylab illness. So what's the worst thing that can happen with Corona virus? The worst thing that could happen is that you could die. The second worst thing that could happen is that you could be seemed dometic. Could give it to someone else who could die so the consequences of catching coronavirus could be pretty bad. They could in fact be catastrophic. Your death or someone else's death that's catastrophic. That's is high pretty much is it course so think about how bad it really's rank it on the catastrophe style or think about the worst thing that could happen end ranked that on the catastrophe. Scotto the second thing I do is. I do a bit of a risk analysis. What's the risk of that thing that you're afraid of happening going back to the at least a fees again? The buses the risk of getting lost is really fairly law. And as I've said in the previous point the consequences of getting lost really. Aren't that bad. The risks of the unknown. Well Dagan Very. It's unknown. That's what makes it unknown but some of the risk of some of those things going to be pretty lawyer and some of them are GonNa be higher speaking in front of people unless you have prepared at all and you really don't know what you're talking about the risk of any of these bad things happening to you people laughing at you people not laughing at you. People thinking less. Avi is fairly low really the risk of job loss. That really depends on your situation. It could be very high right now. The risk of illness depending on where you are and depending on with will dramatically affect the risk of catching corona virus and other particularly illnesses. So does a bit of a risk analysis if the risk of something is very high and the consequences that catastrophe scale ranking is very large then as the experts say feel the fear and do it anyway. Because you'll be okay if the risk is very high and the consequences are very high. Then you probably shouldn't do whatever it is that you'll afraid that seal quotas all keeping you safe so playing golf on golf course when there's an electrical storm Reid overhead and lots of lightning. I think you pretty right to be afraid of that. Because there's a pretty high risk that you're GONNA get struck by lightning. Getting struck by lightning is pretty bad. If the risk is high in the consequences are high. Listen to you if the risk is Laurie on the consequences of high. Then you'll just have to weigh that up you know. Is it worth taking? That risque benefits Lori to suffer is bad consequences if the risk is low in the consequences alarm just do it. You'll be fine like me catching buses. The risk is pretty low the consequences of getting lost. I really not that bad so I should just do it so onto my third point then which I keep alluding to what can you do to lower the risk of whatever it is that you're afraid of or less than the consequences because if he can lessen the risk and the consequences or even one advice? That's that's a good thing catching buses. I can listen. The risk of getting lost and the consequences are getting lost by being prepared. I check and double check the bus route and the time and make sure that I'm getting on the bus. I asked the driver when getting on the bus to make sure I'm getting on the right bus. I have an APP on my phone which anyone can use sighted or blind. It's called movie. It that tells you where you are. It tells you what bus to catch and it even tells you to get off so I use that sometimes if I'm feeling particularly tired and the risk of getting lost his higher. I asked the driver to tell me when to get off so I'm very prepared. I also always have my find me. Sorry if I did get lost if I dig it off at the wrong stop. I can ring someone and say help. I don't know where I am also got used to asking strangers for help and usually people are pretty kind. So I've done all. I can to lower the risk of getting lost and low the effective consequences of getting lost. So I just get out there and do it. Fear of the unknown. Well you can think of all the things that might happen and perhaps future-proof if you're afraid of losing a job perhaps go get some financial advice and say what the consequences of that could be. You can future proof for perhaps economic downturn and by saving or again getting financial advice around your investments. That kind of thing said is different ways. You can future proof as much as you can fear of job loss. I sort of mentioned that in the unknown part. And there's a podcast. I did earlier on the eighteenth to do thinking of leaving your job. And I've also done some podcasts on job loss which provides some suggestions and I will link to those in the. It's so you could for example. If you're afraid of losing your job you could update your savings or your resume to put yourself in the best possible position could start looking at your networks who you nor where else you could possibly get another job. Speaking in front of people will the best way to overcome that one or lower. The risk of that happening and lower. The consequences of the that happening is to prepare the better prepared. You are the Berry you will be able to perform sheriff illness the best way. You can really lower the risk in the consequences of illnesses to keep yourself healthy eight riot if you can't take vitamins or perhaps bit both. Dubin of exercise. Drink plenty of water you know. Just try and keep yourself as healthy as you can in these days of corona virus. Tikal the precautions. And you know that you really doing your very best to keep yourself healthy and take precautions to lower the risk of getting seek so. They're the three things I do on a regular basis to help overcome my fear and anxiety.

Our Family Had Covid! Here's How It Went For Us (Bonus Episode)
"Hello everyone and welcome to this. Bonus episode of what fresh hell laughing in the face of mother this is Margaret and this is amy and. Yeah we wanted to talk about covert and what it's like to have mild cases of Covid and for your kids to have mild cases of Covid I. Mean it means a lot of different things but there was a an outpouring of disbelief and questions and we thought we. Give you a little more information if you want it. So if you guys haven't heard this week's episode, we had a big reveal. It was like a sweeps week reveal except for it wasn't sweeps week and I don't think people know it sweeps week is any. Alert all deluxe alert back in my day. But Amy, let us know that she and her whole family have all had coronavirus and so people were following up with reactions and questions, and so we thought it would be a good idea to stick in a little bonus episode here and get a little firsthand account from amy about what it's like to have corona virus. So Amy, yeah, you got. Coronavirus in March in March. Yes. A little bit of the timeline. Okay. So my daughter got sick I with what we now know was Covid, but which did not have any of the symptoms that we were looking at the time. So we'll talk about that like what were the symptoms in our case 'cause they they weren't an aren't some of what you read about she went i March tenth. I, went down second on March sixteenth my husband March eighteen, my oldest child march nineteenth, and my middle child was never symptomatic at all, which is sort of course I think and for perspective for people who are listening. We were still open and active in New York on March tenth. So like y'all got it before people before it really started shutting down. We had had a case in Westchester. County. Which is north of the city where I live with a person who commuted into the city. It was like the worst possible case scenario. Basically, it starts spreading there's community spread not that it all traces to one person, but you know it starts spreading what day of the week is March tenth me it was a Tuesday. So that we can before that I was in the city like hanging at a Mexican restaurant for a friend's birthday, we were not at all. We were using hand sanitizer and being like is something coming but we weren't at all in shutdown mode. The kids were still in school my kids school shutdown, the thirteenth, I guess, which was that Friday that's right. This was the week to statistic cast your mind back. This was the week that you know Tom Hanks current virus. The NBA's canceling their season school is closing that all happened in this week when for us we had. Already we just didn't really realize it, but you're right this was a moment, but it happened like, Tom. Hanks had coronavirus was two days after your daughter started showing. So yes but like I said I didn't know that her symptoms were coronavirus symptoms. So yes in and you're absolutely right. It was a time of New York where it was like. All right. Let's all make gallows humor jokes and go about our business. You know what I mean we like I right? We didn't get. There was a school. There's a mother dance at my kids high school which we went to. Touch each other but we went to a mother son dance and then I wrote the subway that was it event could have. Yeah. Yeah and I remember one of my circle of. was like I think we're gonNA stay home from that and so you know I was watching my hands I crazy using hand sanitizer not hugging and going about my business with with a little like. Are you know like jokey demeanor? And that was not sufficient and that didn't work that didn't work very well now. So what happens your daughter starts feeling how on March tenth she wakes up and tells me that she's like exhausted that she cannot lift her head exhausted and nauseous. Now, any to to explain something else here, which is my daughter gets migraines frequently and has for a couple of years and it's sort of a chronic thing that unfortunately my kid has to do with. So she was saying I can't lift my head. I'm so dizzy. I'm so nauseous an absolutely exhausted and I said sounds like you have a migraine sweetie and she said, no, this is different. This feels different and I said, okay, stay home from school next day. Mom I'm exhausted I'm absolutely exhausted. She did a little bit of a fever I'm not seeing a cough I'm not seeing runny nose I'm not seeing you know the things that we were looking for them, which were cold symptoms. She just was expressing exhaustion was insistent that it was different. I knew that she was really sick because she'd been watching TV for like twelve hours a day or something. So on day two, I was like I am turning the TV off and you can you can do your schoolwork or you can do this. So you can. You cannot just watch any more TV and she said Okay and I put like a workout IBM to the TV and she lay there and watched me do the workout for sixty minutes since she didn't like get up and go to her room she didn't. Find Pelota Book. She'd just lay there not moving done watching me and I thought She does seem pretty sick by Friday. She was fine I'm GonNa like Oh. That was weird. My brother and sister-in-law visited us that weekend and we had again sort of preface like Oh. This is weird times. What do you think like? Okay we'll be careful. Didn't touch each other drove my brother and sister-in-law to the airport that Monday and they never got sick they never they were never tested but they were never symptomatic. There are about thirty. So it's possible. They did have it and the possible there yet either didn't get it from US or asymmetric. So I drive them to the airport. You know air conditioning on windows up for forty five minutes and my daughter actually came with. US because she felt fine and on the way home for the airport, I had to pull off the road because i. felt like I was going to faint and had extreme stomach pains like extreme I need I need to pull over in a pass out my stomach hurts so much and I managed to get home where I lay on the floor for the rest of the afternoon where I I've talked about this in the show before like my kids my husband were just sort of gathering around me with curiosity like mom, what are you doing on the floor? I I can't explain. I cannot. Set Up I. Feel so sick and then start getting a fever and then start thinking is coronavirus. Like no cough no runny nose sore throat nothing like that and had high fever. The next day we have would clearly fevers might thermometer is out of batteries. You know those little like baby thermometers it's not working re timing, Yup don't have a thermometer. So I'M GONNA pause here and but like if you make sure you have thermometer that works because I didn't that's a good takeaway. So we knew we all had some kind of a fever but weren't able to give data on that to the doctors. It was only when we all started to get a feeling that we couldn't brief. The chest tightness was happening that we started to suspect Corona virus at which point we called each of our primary care physicians my daughter's pediatrician my own doctor, my husband's doctor and all of them the same advice which was like do not go to the hospital because again this is a different time than it is. Now you were not to go to the hospital in March unless you would stop breathing basically not certitude I don't go to the hospital they. And even like I know people who went to the hospital who could not walk across the room without falling down and they sent them home, they just did not have room at the hospitals for people yes or tests. So what they told us that as like sounds like you might have it and you know we don't know about the stomach pain the exhaustion that sounds weird. But if you have fever tightness in your chest, you have it and presume you. Have it, and this is really I think the best advice for everybody whether it was march or or whatever. Presume you have it and act accordingly because even now if you get a test, it's it's good to have the test and no, you have it in quarantine but just quarantine anyway and there are no saying if you're sick if you're showing symptoms if you think you might have it and you can't get a test just quarantines. That's what they're telling. US To do, and then there was absolutely nothing they could give you now maybe they would be rendez. Aveer or hydroxy chloroquine whatever there's still no vaccine. So the best thing you can do is so that's what we did although I was Tokyo I was sleeping in a separate space from my husband we were trying to use separate bathrooms, but I was still a cooking for my kids and stuff. But of course you work because you're like you're like I. Have the worst plague in one hundred years. But no, let me go ahead and make dinner. Yes. Exactly. At forbids someone else Cook Dinner Oh and my spouse and I were in this like no, no, no, no, no no I really am sick. No no no. No. I. Like cannot. You know can knock it out of bed right now or texting each other like who who, who? Can less affair he has it now as well by that yes. This is like my husband and I once had the stomach flu and we made a deal that you got to be a bad for two hours and then the alarm went off for the other person got to be in bed for two hours and I would go in after the two hours and he'd be like. A thousand dollars if you don't make me get up and I'd be like getting. Stabbed yeah like that's it like it's your turn there's nothing to parents sick. Yes. Exactly. We were having the like who who can absolutely do this less contest and my kids it's funny at the time I was talking to a friend overtaxing she's like, Oh, the kids must be scared. No because from where my kids stand like I don't have it. This is. Stupid get out of bed. You're making this up like they had zero sympathy for me, which is probably a protective mechanism, but they had no time for this whereas my dinner they weren't feeling it. Yes. So to make off a little more manageable, we felt like this like exhausted can't take a deep breath going up a flight of stairs you have to stop. No appetite just like really just getting through the bare minimum of a day I felt like that for about three weeks and then there was another three weeks where I felt better I wasn't gonNA exercise I wasn't going to go for a long walk or anything but I could do what I needed to do without feeling sick and that was the course of it for me and for my husband and for. My teenage son who is sticky had a bad thirty six hours and then he was fine. Right. So there is clearly like an age component ranch, right? Right. Let me pause for a second before we go any further as we talk about coronavirus, please understand that we are to comedy podcasters talking about Corona Virus. We are not if you have been following the podcast and don't know this I'm surprised medical doctor. We are not people you should be taking any medical advice from we have no medical training. So as we talk about, this is the symptoms that amy had. This is what went on with her hopefully, it's illuminating an interesting, but it is not in place of medical information. Go to the doctor call your doctor gets him telehealth don't listen to this podcast medical advice. That's right. I think like what I have to offer and to bring to the table that I feel his important to talk about is a mild cove and what it means. In our family has been a huge range of experiences. So like I said my husband and I were sick for three weeks my seventeen year old sick for thirty six hours. My fifteen year old was never sick at all and my twelve year old has had the rockiest recovery. She's been in the hospital. A couple of times she's never been admitted. She's had a wide range of testing and everything. Is testing well, but she is really after all this time not feeling better. So let me ask you. This is the first question that people want to know about coronavirus who has underlying conditions in your face yeah. So my daughter people seem to connect this thing of like underlying conditions go with bad cove and conversely no underlying conditions. You're not gonNA have a problem with a comforting narrative but in. Our case if you had to point to an underlying condition for my daughter, it would be her migraines. It would not be the things you're hearing about more often as Meyer diabetes or you know compromise lung function or whatever shouldn't have any of those things she gets she gets migrants frequently, and so we are completely guessing as to whether that's related at all but in her case she has. Underlying condition and it just has been a tricky. They're calling it long-haul. If you're if you're interested in this, if you search the Internet for long-haul covert or you search like Hashtag long-haul, there are people who are expressing the sort of form of things. Most of these people were never hospitalized. These are mild cases just don't quite get better and it's rare in children, but it's not non existent, right? So now it's been it's not mid August four months four months five. Five point five months How is your daughter feeling now? Well, she's has days when she can do I'd say a good portion of a of a usual amount of activity and there are days when she has to stay in bed most of the day because she has what is being cautiously diagnosed as post viral chronic fatigue where she kinda can't kind of can't get going she is a typical kid. and. So my goal is always to have her do as much as she can whenever she can. But what can be tricky about this is if they exert themselves people who have post viral fatigue, you think the answer is like get out of bed just go do something like I was saying to her that day you know the day to illness when she's lying suck like you're not gonNa Watch TV anymore. That works to an extent but in this case, people with a smile covert that goes on for a long time exertion can actually be a setback. So you've got to be careful with yeah like she's there have been times when when either pushed it or do something or you know she was running around outside and having a great time and I wasn't going to. Tell her that she couldn't do handstands and then you know then the next day she seemed to really feel it. But just so that we don't give people panic attacks she's doing significantly better. Yes. Her good periods are longer and higher, and that's that's what you want. You know. So she has two weeks of feeling good and then two or three days where she's Just not herself at all and then she comes back and she is doing better. She's going to return to school in person had lengthy discussion with a medical professional who has told the school and us like, yes five months into this. If you're having some post viral immune reaction, you're not still shutting the virus so she can she can go to school and. Partake things which she's really excited about doing. So at bats, any sense of how she's feeling she is so excited to go to school with a face shield and the dividers in the separate staircase and the on the six feet apart she she can't wait so that to me is a sort of yardstick of her feeling better. Good. All right. We'll be right back.

You're on the other side of it. Now I WANNA make very clear that. Amy and her family were like patient practically zero on this. They it in March march tenth, and it is now past. August five months later five months later, and so your experience of contracting coronavirus now will likely be very different. Let's talk about that a little bit amy well, like I said we were we were told like do not go to the hospital. There's no tests anyway when my my daughter was finally tested a month after being sick and then it took two weeks for the test to come back and it was a negative test. But of course, it was because she hadn't had a fever or whatever for weeks by that point. So now if you felt sick. They would be able to get tested pretty quickly and most places and resulting was long as they take. Yeah. But but more than like, we'll test you a month later and then two weeks for the result just to be clear you know you had corona virus because all five of you tested positive for the antibody we tested positive for the antibodies. That's right. But none of us have a positive test because I never got tested in the first place neither did my husband or my son, and my daughter's almost went on long enough that we had to go to the Er and then she was given a task and. Negative I will say because I think people might be wondering amy and I record in separate locations. So Amy's in Manhattan An. Of that in Westchester County and so for people who are like, how didn't we get it by sitting in the studio together we don't have that. So that's why we've refenced socially distanced all along. We have the perfect socially job or end. Up to amy who was feeling pretty bad and would come on and be like I'm feeling terrible but would record. So we never missed a week of recording because amy's just that. Cool. It gives me something to to hold onto read if I was well enough to do the podcast. Then the someone's GonNa come out tomorrow. But I will say also in probably a week after that no relation to amy Ma at three of members of my family were sick but it was a similar thing I was driving my car and suddenly I was like I'm GonNa be sick out of almost out of the blue and my daughter and son in Iran on enough fevers for ten days, and so I- keeping like us you go get the antibody test because there was about today's in the middle there there were I was pretty sure I had it but yeah. I felt so much better. I was exercising again like six days after that. So I was like that can't be corona virus but who knows I'll get anybody tested some point well, they seem to to lease be starting to figure out that lower viral load means lower level of illness that right that means for those of you who don't know what a viral load is I had to look it up if you're like intimating a patient and leaning over them and they cough like a giant deep long cough right in your face, you're going to get a large viral load. They're like putting the virus righted face. If you are have incidental contact with someone who has it? And you get a minor case. Then you don't that's a lower viral promptly had again my role not a doctor didn't go to medical school. Yeah. Can I tell you some things that I wished we had in the house and I think is just sort of good practice at these things going thermometer with batteries by the time I was able to order a battery Amazon because of course, we're not leaving the house through these things we got in Staccato groceries delivered and you know ordered the battery from the CVS and there was no medicine to be had anyway. So make sure you have a thermometer that works sure you have new Cenex I have not seen. This listed anywhere, but it's a it's a nonprescription medication. I feel comfortable saying our doctors advised US take x it'll keep your cough loose. In case you start to cough eventually a couple of US started to cough and it never progressed too seriously. But we took Musa end were you know we all got better? So I'm going to say that something to consider, and of course, like tea tea honey that you that you would like and that your kids would like get much of that. As you can gatorade, you know have some of that around all the sticky stuff chicken soup you when you don't feel great it's like whatever you can get down whatever salty sugary. Calories you can ingest the better the more liquid, the better I've been going with that theory without having coronavirus whatever salty and sugary foods I can get in the better. I'm already way ahead of you. And the the last thing is a pulse ox similar. Oh, the pulse Xm it might be hard to get now I don't know we. So my they're coming back in now I think you can get them again my daughter had been sick for a couple of weeks and we were doing like telehealth appointment number. Thirteen with her pediatrician way shouldn't we pause and tell the audience? What genius person told you to get a pulse ox limiter Margaret Abels wasn't? It means the pediatrician? No. Actually told you to get one. Yes. You had mentioned that you're right and then then the pediatrician was sorta like. Who needs a pediatrician when you podcast my non medical? Professional podcast partners I get a pulse ox anyway they are good to have because you or your kid or whatever is saying like I feel like I feel like I have shortness of breath I feel like my heart is racing both of which are things that have continued and this pediatrician who's trying to diagnose her through a screen said, you know what? Go get a pulse ox and she gave me the best advice she said like don't go to the CVS go to the mom and pop medical supply store because they're going to be more likely to still have one in stock, but then was good advice and it was. At Dr, caffeine or to get one but I got one and my daughter started taking her measures, your pulse, and also the level of oxygen in your blood. It's just important to have that information and sometimes you can get a weird reading. So so if you get one that looks a little lower, a little high, take it again, take a picture. I mean you know I had in some cases doctor saying like well, I don't. I don't think that was a good rating I'm like, okay. Well, we did it again and then we got the same reading because your pulse can be you know one thing. About even mild cases at this, your pulse can be higher than it should be in your oxygen will, of course, be lower your blood oxygen level will be lower than it should be. But what sort of weird about this disease I guess is like if your if your blood oxygen was only ninety one percent, you wouldn't be able to be sitting there and talking to me right now but you can. It's like a weird thing about us, and so the the OC similar really helped us take care of my daughter at home and feel safe because like if these numbers you know me, I love data I. Have something I can measure, and this was a way to be like if her numbers are here, we're in good shape a for numbers get to this point I feel like a pulse similar can sound like I. Don't know like a lifesaver it's GonNa cost twenty, thousand dollars they're like forty bucks. There nothing and it just really helped me as a you know a worrying parents be like she tells him she doesn't feel well but these numbers are are this and so I know it's okay and then then when we did end up going to the Er rose because her numbers had dipped to a point where her pediatrician over telehealth was like, okay. Let's seen and we got her scene and she actually got a bunch of IV fluids in the Er and it really helped her her heart rate get back to normal. So that's the other. Thing. I didn't know until I was in this situation is if you have like racing heart all that kind of thing drink drink drink drink that helps bring the racing heart rate down I had no idea also secondhand medical information. Yes but it can't hurt I. Am we need an like an Oldie locks alert? We need we're not doctors to play when wherever we give anything even close to medical advice. I feel like I feel like as when I'm saying like drink water and drink gatorade that that's you know the downside of that is pretty pretty limited. Yes I hope. But if you have a racing heart wait, you should talk to your doctor and not just take the advice that you heard on this podcast please. Yes always. So what our conclusions from this experience amy, you know it's frustrating as you. Might Imagine people are about to send their kids back to school right and they're like, wait a minute. I. Think we need accurate information. So you can imagine how frustrating it is I mean good luck with that ain't right but it is incredibly frustrating as a parent to hear kids don't get this or kids don't get sick because I know that that's not true. What is true is that kids seem To have serious complications far less often very serious complications and deaths far less often can they get it as easily? It's unclear because such a high rate of cases are a symptomatic but I do think as you factor in your decisions about should you send your kid down the street to the birthday parties? Should you be going to crotty lessons right now whatever the the idea that it's impossible for your kid To to get coronavirus or to feel sick from it is more than zero. That's all that's all I can say, yeah, I mean this is where there is emerging data. Right? Kids are testing positive for coronavirus hundreds of dollars I mean, what is it? One? Hundred thousand kids in July? Yes I have I have here. I. Wanted To make sure I got it right CNN more than ninety seven, thousand children. Tested positive. Just in the last two weeks of July. Frankly that is fairly good news because we're not hearing a ton about kids are dying from coronavirus. There are children die from coronavirus, but the numbers on children are genuinely looking pretty good. It doesn't mean I mean kids die from the flu kids die from all sorts of diseases that don't kill most people even the measles you know like a lot of. People don't die from measles. You don't WanNa get it. So I think that we are exactly at the nexus like here's the thing with corona virus. You don't WanNa get it. You don't want your kids to get it but as we start heading back to school in the fall, you know there is some chance that your kid is going to come in contact with people with Corona virus that they are to. Get Corona, virus and It's just present. I just feel like it's important to say like it's it's mitigated risk. It's not nonexistent risk and it's not good information. That's a vibe that we haven't lived with a ton as parents of our generation right? which is like it's like. Well, you get the measles vaccine then your kids doesn't get the measles that is actually pretty much how it works. You know, I. was to write to me and be like there's a percentage I get it but we have lived lives of like pretty much lack of risk in a lot a lot a lot of. That like we do all of the things we get the vaccines we send our kids. We don't let them ride bikes without helmets we debt. We're like very risk averse and we go to the Fire Department of make sure that the seat is incorrectly and you know this is a different situation for a lot of this is there is an unmitigated risk in our lives that we have to deal with. Yes. But I think the data is generally pretty comforting. That the numbers are very much on your side with corona virus being something that kids can survive. You have had experienced where you have a kid who really had a very and is still dealing with long term effects of Corona virus. So that's another data house. It's chronic. Yeah it's become. It's become chronic at this point and there are thousands of people out there like her and the sort of why this is happening and when it will resolve or still. Very. Poorly understood she's safe. She's going to be safe and the good news is we knew from a very early point because all her testing which tests for things that aren't covert right? This is a novel Corona Virus Kerr. She's had multiple chest xrays. She's had heart scans and the good news is I think she's got an excellent care and the good news is these tests are showing that her heart and her lungs are working like they should but then. They're still. So then why is this weird thing happening and the answer is we're not sure So I just think of like from an absolute point of view the one thing I can cross up everybody's list is you don't want to get this and so the mitigation, the risk mitigation that you're undergoing the Massey you're wearing the mask you're making your kid wearing even when she really doesn't want to is worth it. That's all I'm saying that this isn't like. Let's just hurry up and get it over with is and not well informed point of view. The other piece of good news is that the mitigation provided by masks. Pretty. Good. So it's not one hundred percent you don't WanNA BE GOING TO A. Concert with ten thousand of your closest friends not wearing a mask or wearing a mask. You don't WanNa be in gigantic crowds of people but. We hopefully can under you know my my school is going two days a week they're splitting the classes cleaning the classrooms. They're doing a ton of things to help us stay safe and within that context. Hopefully, there is this element that we possibly think there is of lower viral load. So like what you don't want to do is be probably wherever amy and her family got it. We don't know where that place was. was right a person coughing directly to your mouth basically right I mean you got gotta probably bad case of it I don't think so I I do WanNa push back on that because people have asked me of course from the beginning, how do we get it because you want to know so you cannot do that one thing right? Like how did I I lived in New York City where the virus was everywhere and and there was community spread happening that we weren't fully aware yet. So I wasn't around I can't tell you this person gave it to me at this party or I was elevator somebody who coughed I don't have them you know. One moment like that. But I was living in a place where nobody was wearing masks ever because they're telling us not to. So that's a big change. No, I'm totally making a joke about someone coughing you and your mouth, but you got it from a person not wearing a mask that's basically what I'm trying to say, right? I. Got It from me not wearing a mask and the other person whoever they were right so like you got in a different situation than most people are now you most rival are in situations where if they're talking to another human being both of those people were wearing masks so you did get it in a situation that I. Mean, be very clear that I'm not saying you got it. I'm never doing that I'm saying like in March I was doing a lot more I was at a bar. You got it. You know in Lower Manhattan eating Mexican food with twelve friends, but now I would not be in that same situation things have changed. That's all I'm saying that's right. You should just feel good as a parent about the things that you were doing to keep your family and your kid safe. You know prioritizing safety can't ever be the wrong thing and you're doing the right thing and the people who might tell you the kids can't it or that it's nothing if they do. Get, it are not well informed and and you your kid will be safer than Immuno compromised adult. But why not make them that little bit more safe by making sure they wear a mask and like everything on the podcast it's a double life lesson. I have my kids wear masks. We have some high risk people in our lives and I am convinced on the science of mask-wearing better that the person you're talking to I believe in the theory, my mass protects you your mass protects me basically, but there is emerging data that your mask also protects you that it's droplets and you don't want to get droplets in your mouth. So wearing a mask helps that. Therefore. I have my kids wear masks when they're around other people and cannot social distance which sounds like right isn't that what everyone's doing but When my kids are in a situation where there's other kids around or whatever it happens to be I don't trust their ability to social distance just keep a mask on the mask doesn't bother them. My kids don't have a huge issue with keeping their masks on and they have sometimes had kids be like, Oh, just take your mask off. We're not wearing masks today and they're like. No we we're more comfortable keeping them on guess what that's a double life lesson of other kids telling your kids what's right for them and they say, you know what? We've made a different decision than that and so that works to these are tough situations all the time and ground rules set in advance work. The best we we were seeing family members recently set in. The we're going to see them outside going to be socially distanced, but you know these situations can be a little the the line can a little wavy and so I just like said to the kids in the way that we are not going inside and if you do go inside, you must have a mask on going bathroom whatever and if the kids say, let's go down to. The Toy Room you're going to say we're not doing that today and if you're inside for any reason, your mask is on you understand me yes and having that conversation beforehand makes it easier for your kids. If they're put an uncomfortable situation to say, well, you know I, as I said, like, blame it on me some imams crazy I don't care you know give them the parameters. Ahead of time, it seems to make it easier for them in the moment to say, well, this is what I need to do, and the takeaway is what a skill to be building your kid the ability to be in a situation where everyone's like you're doing the wrong thing come to what we're doing and having them practice the skill of saying we're actually going to do this. Thing. That seems kind of square and lame and we're going to be okay with it it it just also make one decision. You know I'm kind of like we're just gonNA keep our masks on in crowded situations. Period makes it easier for me to not have to be constantly watching you guys are you doing this? Are you doing that works for me? I'M GONNA put some links. In the show notes for this episode up to Long Haul Cova step if anybody's interested in that because it's something that's like I said poorly understood but getting to be better understood. CNN. Just did an article on kids with long-haul vis week. So it's just starting to come out and I don't own arm anybody. It's just more like if you know somebody who you think might be. In the situation knowing that you're not crazy is is very helpful guys. We kick go with solved but that's amy story. We cannot amy's journey through corona virus guys, but thanks for all the well wishes everybody I really appreciate it and thanks for listening to our bonus episode guys, and we'll talk to you on a regular question of the week and episodes next week so long.
COVID-19 Vaccine Is Still On Track For Early 2021

Hello everyone and welcome to today in America Day round of today's top new stories. Here's your latest. Dr Anthony Fallacy the nation's top infectious disease. Experts testified before. Congressional Oversight Panel Today on the nation's response to the coronavirus pandemic. He told House. Lawmakers that the nation is experiencing a disturbance search of coronavirus infection, and that the next couple of weeks are going to be critical in the nation's ability to address the surges. We are seeing in Florida. Texas Arizona and other states Dr Fallacy told the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the picture is a mixed bag with some bright spots, but many dark clouds in unknowns, the coronavirus Task Force Committee also made it clear that they did not agree. Agree with President trump who last week claimed in an interview with Fox News that the virus would simply fade away Dr Robert Redfield. The director of the CDC called the pandemic, the greatest public health crisis. Our nation and world have confronted in a century and warned that the outbreak coincide with flu season later this year officials in the committee said progress has been made in confronting the virus including a vaccine that Dr Faustus said he was cautiously. Optimistic could be ready by early next year, although you can never guarantee at all the safety and efficacy of a vaccine until you actually tested in the field, we feel cautiously optimistic based on the concerted effort and the fact that we are taking. Risks, not risks to safety not risk to the integrity of the science, but financial risks to be able to be ahead of the game, so that when and I believe it will be when, and not, if we get favourable candidates with good results, we will be able to make them available to the American public as I, said to this committee months ago within a year from when we started, which would put us at the end of this calendar year and And the beginning of two thousand and twenty one Dr Kelsey, also said that the availability of testing in doctor's offices would be expanded by leave for the doctors were also grilled on President. Trump's claim to slow down testing because increase screening was revealing more infections and making the country look bad Dr Faouzi said that neither he nor any other official he knew of had been asked by the president to slow testing, and in fact, plan to increase testing as As new coronavirus hotspots are emerging. Some states are slowing down return to work plans, and even reimposing earlier restrictions on Tuesday Arizona reported a record, three, thousand, five, hundred, ninety, one new cases and forty two debts last week Arizona, Governor Doug ducey allowed mayors to make wearing a mask.

U.S. Borders Stay Closed For Another Month
"Steven MNUCHIN warns Congress of Permanent Economic Damage. Us border stay closed for another month and New York hospitals will soon allow visitors. Hello everyone and thanks for tuning into latest coronavirus updates. There are a total of ninety. Three thousand coronavirus related deaths in the US. With cases topping one point five million during a Senate Banking Committee Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Federal Reserve chairman at Jerome Powell warrant of the fragile status of the economy and more severe job losses. In the months to come we have had to take unprecedented steps to shutdown significant parts of our economy in the interest of public health. As a result in the second quarter of this year we are continuing to see large unemployment and other negative indicators it is important to realize that the large number represents real people. This is why it is so important to begin bringing people back to work in a safe way. Mnuchin suggested that without a rapid reopening plan the economy might never fully recover warning that the economy might sustain permanent damage if states extend their shutdowns for months. Manasian also said the government will have to take financial losses. The comments underscored a new economic projection released by the Congressional Budget Office which suggested that recovery would depend on the viruses trajectory the budget office projected that GDP would contract by eleven percent in the second quarter and the jobless rate would hit fifteen percent with industries suggest travel hospitality and retail bearing the brunt of the losses. New York governor. Andrew Cuomo has announced a new pilot program for allowing visitors at sixteen hospitals around the state. Nine of which are in New York City. Visitors will be subject to temperature checks. And we'll be required to wear personal protective equipment including face masks. In March state officials had issued guidance asking hospitals to spend visitation as the virus was spreading rapidly only three regions downstate. New York will remain under the state's shutdown orders that Albany area will begin reopening on Wednesday New York City Long Island and the counties north of the city known as the mid Hudson region. All have yet to meet at least two of the seven health related benchmarks that the governor set for reopening New York City mayor. Bill de Blasios said Monday that he did not expect the city to meet the state's criteria to begin to reopen and to at least the first half of June Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the border between Canada and the United States were remain closed for at least another month Canada and the United States have once again agreed to extend by thirty days. The current measures in place along the border. The two nations reached an agreement to extend the closing through June twenty-first which was introduced in March and set to expire on Thursday. The closing dates do not apply to cross-border transportation of goods by trucks ships and planes people who commute across the border to work for essential. Jobs may also continue to cross. Several Canadian leaders have said they opposed a rapid reopening of the border as the United States has reported more than double the rate of virus cases than Canada. The temporary travel restrictions limiting travel across the US. Mexico border have also been extended through June twenty second travel through ports of entry on the US. Mexico border have been limited to a central travel. Since March twenty fourth new coronavirus hotspots are emerging across bakeries farms and packing houses officials. Say The viruses spreading through other food facilities in the same manner as in meat processing plants. A mushroom farm in Tennessee had more than fifty confirmed cases. The Birds Vegetable Processing Facility. In Darien Wisconsin also had at least one hundred cases of corona virus in Texas. The Abbey more foods bakery has at least fifty two cases the prima foods dairy in Colorado has more than eighty cases and the Sunday packing house in Coachella. California has at least twenty confirmed cases. Workers usually have to work close together and crowd into locker rooms and Cafeterias Alex Velox the Assistant Secretary of Health Louisiana says that some of the workers live in dormitory like settings lassie the CDC has quietly released detailed guidance for schools.

Thu. 05/28 - Can Biomarkers Tell Us How COVID-19 Affects People Differently?
"Welcome to the good news. Ride home for Thursday. May Twenty eight th two thousand and twenty. I'm Jackson very is the corona virus more dependent on super spreaders than we thought. Research indicates possible biological markers to determine how severely an individual will react to covid nineteen and how the decline of local journalism is taking a toll on America's small towns plus. Will we be able to trust our memories of this time? Cannibalistic dinosaurs and why or Jews are sold in Red Mesh bags? The United Kingdom is rolling out a new testing and tracing initiative. Today quoting the New York Times. People with potential covid nineteen symptoms will be tested and if positive be asked to list everyone. They've been recently in close contact with for at least fifteen minutes and those people will in turn be contacted and asked to isolate themselves for fourteen days. The country's Health Secretary Matt Hancock said this week that the program aimed to replace a nationwide lockdown with individual isolation or smaller localized restrictions. If new cases emerge the move comes a day after Francis Parliament approved the deployment of a contact tracing APP. That has set off an intense debate in the country. Critics question how the gathered data will be used and worry about setting a precedent for state run monitoring but Francis Data. Privacy watchdog ruled that. The APP has sufficient safeguards end quote. Mexico is facing a devastating shortage of healthcare workers and equipment with over eleven thousand three hundred healthcare workers falling ill one of the highest rates in the world quoting the Times. We've had many of what we call dome deaths said Pablo via Senor doctor. The General Hospital into WANNA the center of an outbreak. It's not the virus that's killing them. It's the lack of proper care. Patients die because they're given the wrong medications or the wrong dose. Healthcare workers said protective gloves at some hospitals are so old they crack the moment there slipped. On nurses said Mexico's government spends less on healthcare as a percent of its economy than most countries in the Western Hemisphere according to the World Bank president over door presided over spending cuts even after acknowledging that his country had two hundred thousand fewer healthcare workers than it needed and quotes as the tourism industry seeks to revive itself. Some nations are getting creative. Cyprus is now saying that it will cover the costs of lodging food drinks and medication for any travelers who test positive for corona virus after visiting the country tourism accounts for fifteen percent of Cypresses economy. And they've seen less than one thousand cases of Corona virus and senator. Tim Kaine has announced that he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus antibodies. They experienced flu like symptoms around the time. The Senate took a recess in late March but weren't originally tested due to a scarcity of supplies and the mild nature of their symptoms. This makes him the second confirmed. Us senator to have recovered from covid. Nineteen the other one being Senator Rand Paul. I've got two pieces of cautiously optimistic news from New York magazine's Corona Virus Roundup. I is that the corona virus may be more dependent on large public events in super spreaders than we originally thought quoting New York magazine. The media conversation about SARS COV to popularized one key epidemiological variable are the average number of people in afflicted individual infects before social distancing measures were enacted the corona virus. Had an are of about three and yet this average obscures. The profound variation between individuals estimates vary but multiple research teams believed that the typical covid nineteen patient does not infect a single other person a reality that is concealed by the prolific transmission rates of so-called super spreaders in fact according to a new study from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine L. S. H. T. M. about ten percent of Corona virus. Patients are responsible for eighty percent of all new infections. This means that the coronavirus is high are is potentially mitigated by. Its Lo que. A variable that describes how reliant disease is on clusters of infection in order to spread viruses with a high k such as the nineteen eighteen influenza can spread diffusely through a large number of individuals. Those with a Lo que. Such as the novel Coronavirus Close Relatives. Sars and Moore's cannot sustain themselves without super spreaders. This was one reason. Why both of those coronavirus is burned out quickly and never recurred research from the University of Bern suggests that the corona virus has a slightly higher k than SARS or Murs but one that is much lower than that of the Spanish flu. This finding makes some of the random disparities in outcomes easier to understand a virus with a Lo que value needs a bit of luck to get off the ground. If such a bug gets itself into the rate human say one who's to committed to choir practice to let a cold keep them home. It can gain a foothold in a community. If it infects a bunch of lonely homebodies meanwhile it will die out before making its presence felt as the novel. Coronavirus sensibly did in France last December. If SARS COV to has a K. As low as the L. S. H. T. M. study claims then would need to be introduced to a new country four separate times before securing a fifty fifty chance of infecting enough people to sustain a prolonged outbreak and quote. So this could be one reason. We haven't seen massive surges in places that reopened businesses but didn't resume large public gatherings like concerts and sporting events. It could also mean that maybe we can resume some activities like non-essential shopping even as we have to pause larger scale gatherings potentially including open office plans for much longer. The other bit of cautiously optimistic news is that scientists are making progress on identifying biomarkers that determine whether an individual will have a mild or severe reaction to covid nineteen researchers in Wuhan analyzing four hundred eighty five corona virus patients with machine learning tools to isolate biological characteristics found quote. Three biological markers are so predictive of mortality they can signal whether a covid nineteen patient will develop life threatening illness with ninety percent accuracy. More than ten days ahead of time. The three so-called by markers all of which can be measured using a single drop of blood were elevated levels of the enzyme lactic dehydrogenation or L. D. H. Low levels of lymphocytes. I E white blood cells and high sensitivity C reactive proteins which are indicative of respiratory inflammation and quotes. Now those three things may or may not mean much to you and your ability to rate your own odds but if those or similar findings pan out it will be incredibly helpful to healthcare workers to be able to better allocate hospital resources and make treatment plans for individual patients but as with everything with the corona virus while both of these bits of news are backed up by legit studies. There's still just preliminary findings only small pieces of the overall puzzle. Plus as the article says this pandemic has routinely cast chaos as the protagonist as the corona virus continues spreading through more rural communities across America. There have been a lot of concerns. Raised lack of well-funded hospitals older populations more prevalent medical conditions. But there's another way. Some of these communities might be at a disadvantage the decline of local journalism rating in the Atlantic Mark. Bodin points out quote while all of us get reams of reporting about national and International Covid nineteen trends. Most of us get little or no reporting about what's happening in the communities where we actually live. He Continues. Local news has largely disappeared. The phenomenon of news desert's is by now well known and yet never has the need for local information. Been grader the big news can be completely at odds with the small news and for individuals. It's the small news that matters. Most the crucial virus. Data is hyper local in my neighborhood hidden within a larger geographic picture. Who's trends give cause for hope? The disease is spiking dramatically. Even scarily and almost nobody knows end quote. Boden says he's been keeping an eye on corona virus related stats by municipality published in The Philadelphia Inquirer and noticed a worrying spike in his home of Kennett Square. A small borough South West Philadelphia. He notes that it's the kind of thing a local reporter would write about but there are no local reporters and because the municipality is so small this spike isn't even being reported on the larger Counties Department of Health Website. His points small communities are being overlooked by larger media and without local journalists to uncover an amplify this vital information. The people in those communities might not get it until it's too late the race to develop a corona virus vaccine is underway. It is the most important problem. We face solving.

One thing I've mentioned before is how as the pandemic goes on and I recognize my utter opposition to watching any corona virus related movies or TV shows that will inevitably the produced in the coming years. Because you know living through it is enough. I start to understand why the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. Maybe hasn't been mentioned or recorded as much in history as I would expect for something that had such a large impact on the world at the time like many traumatic events the people who lived through it didn't want to recount it and continuing on that thread. I've been really interested in the science of memory and the psychological fallout. That will be seen in the coming months and years. According to Steve Ramirez a neuroscientist at Boston University our brains evolved to remember exceptionally good and exceptionally bad memories so that we could either replicate the behavior that led to something rewarding or avoid the behavior or location that lead to something bad like a particular spot where you encounter predatory animal but prolonged experiences like this pandemic can blend together quoting discover magazine according to a two thousand sixteen nature study distinct memories close together in time tend to recruit similar overlapping brain cells to encode them whereas memories that are separated by a longer. Tim Portal Gulf involves separate sets of cells and infusing. Those memories with emotion can intensify the extent to which the brain uses that shared neural ensemble. This is speculation but I think our brains are going to hyper chunk. The pandemic into one big episode says Ramirez intuitively. That's the it's felt to me so far and quote because emotional memories all blended together may be intensified. Our brains might try to tamp down the intensity of those emotions when we recall them. And while that's good for our mental health it can actually make memories less accurate quote every time we recall something says. Ramirez it makes that memory susceptible to modification almost like pressing save as a Microsoft word document their ways of mentally walking down memory lane to reframe that memory in a way that isn't stressful or makes us feel like we have control over it says. Ramirez and quotes additionally when we learn new information related to a memory. We can supplant our memories with that new information and for an ongoing event like this pandemic with constant new information coming out and being a constant topic of our conversations. It's likely that will be missed. Remembering at some of the ways we truly thought were experienced earlier. Parts of the pandemic quoting again. Those faulty details might be as simple as dramatizing. Something Wall telling the story says Darren strange a psychologist at the John. Jay College of criminal justice like exaggerating the number of sirens. You've heard lately. Sometimes those errors might be a consequence of taking on other people's details if you're in New York and you're talking with friends who live closer to a hospital. They might be telling you about the trailers parked outside for the overflow for morgues says strange and two weeks later. You're telling people that you've seen that because you imagined it so vividly in your mind and quotes these faulty memories can work to confirm our perceptions of things like matching to our particular political stances and even more commonly during non traumatic events can be used to confirm our own self image like an study from Yale and the University of Zurich that found that people tend to remember their actions as more generous than they really were but strange and Ramirez point out as discomfiting as it may be to think about the unreliability of our memories. This type of reorganising of our memory is crucial to our survival. Otherwise we would be overloaded by separately stored memories and realistic emotional replays. The errors created by our memories are helping keep us from reliving traumatic moments in full detail over and over again. If you do want to remember this time with a bit more accuracy you can. Of course try things like journaling taking photos or recording video logs. And if you do do any of those and you want to share them you could submit your creations to the frazier history. Museum in Louisville's Corona virus capsule. They're collecting photos artwork videos class projects and written materials in order to document and preserve how people are seeing feeling and coping with this pandemic. You can submit pieces online although they might not necessarily be included. Submissions are viewable in a virtual exhibit on their website. Now and will one day be curated into a physical exhibit linked to that is in the show notes fossils discovered in the Maga more quarry in Colorado show evidence of scavenging and possibly cannibalism among Allah sources in the late Jurassic period. According to a new paper published yesterday a team of paleontologists studied over two thousand three hundred bones in the quarry and found that twenty nine percent of them had bite marks from theropods a group of very large coniferous dinosaurs in measuring the bite marks. The team was able to conclude that the allosaurus Serta Sorus and in additional unidentified carnivore feeding on carcasses left at the site quoting the corey is believed to preserve specimens from an ancient wetlands ecosystem where carcasses were unlikely to disappear into the mud quickly. This gave huge predators to scavenge meat from bone. The team found many of the bite marks on her before bones were located on places where the meat had high nutritional value which makes sense for huge predators however those found on theropod bones were located on regions that provided less nutritional value suggesting the. Mammoth beasts weren't trying to hunt each other but taking advantage of remains even more intriguing. The team believes that they have discovered evidence of Allosaurus Bite. Marks on allosaurus bones. That would make it a Jurassic Cannibal and the first evidence of cannibalism in Allosaurus and quote. While it's possible the bite marks could be left behind from battling with each other like modern day. Crocodiles do the paleontologist point out the quote. Some of the bite marks are in locations that could only reasonably be reached. After death or dismemberment and quote so just in case you've been starting to think dinosaurs weren't quite metal enough here you go and finally today a question. I had never even thought to ask until I saw it posed online. Why are oranges sold in Red Mesh bags like so many things in life? The answer is not in practicality but rather in marketing quoting mental floss the Color Orange pops when compared with the color red more so than it does with yellow green or blue. That means when you see a bunch of oranges behind a red net pattern. Your brain assumes they're more orange and therefore fresher and higher quality than it would if you saw them on their own. That's the same reason. Red Is chosen when making bags for fruits grapefruits. Tangerines which are also orange in color for lemon packaging. Green is more commonly chosen to make the Yellow Rind standouts if limbs were sold in the same red bags as other citrus. The Red and yellow hues together would actually make the fruits appear orange. Lemons can also come in Yellow Mesh bags and the bags for limes are usually green to match their color and quotes. The science of marketing behind. Grocery stores is always really interesting to me. For example grocery stores are typically laid out with produce. Fresh Air Matic and appealing right at the entrance dairy products. The most common item for people to have on their shopping list are usually at the back of a store ensuring that shoppers have to walk through the entire store to get their hopefully being tempted by end cap shelves and remembering additional items. They need along the way and a tip for you. The most expensive items are usually placed at I level. So if you want to save money look down and some stores move food. That's going to expire sooner to the front of the shelf. You'll have to weigh your ethics on food. Waste WITH THIS HACK. But if it's really important to you to get a loaf of bread that lasts a few days longer you can dig to the back of the shelf and sometimes find a newer loaf than the ones displayed in the front. Just a few grocery hacks for you there so on yesterday's show I was talking about how I was about the SPACEX launch. That was going to be happening. I did say there was a chance it might get canceled. And of course it did right after I posted the show talking about it. I turned on NASA's livestream and with seventeen minutes before takeoff the astronauts all strapped in and everything. They called it off Due to weather but it is rescheduled for this Saturday at three twenty two. Pm Eastern. And if that doesn't work they're going to try for Sunday at three o'clock sharp so one day. Eventually we will see this rocket. Take off the road for now. That is all for today objects and buried. I hope you have a good rest of your day. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Well, I wanted to take a moment to talk about the doctor from home. you know, I During the time I was doing research on the coronavirus outbreak. And in the midst of all news that were coming out there is a song on figure that kind of stuck out from the rest, right? And it was this doctor that was working in one of the hospitals in Wuhan and he had a group right? He had a WhatsApp group, you know, it's very popular down there in Asia. actually around the whole world for that matter and he was talking to his colleagues his colleagues that also are doctors in the WhatsApp group. And he he he sent questions to them and told them about I also told them about this new song looking. Virus that could potentially be a danger and he also told us told his colleagues that Please be aware. Please be careful and look out. If something like this. would re-appear Or you would see something like this, right and the colleagues were like, yeah. Yeah, that's great. You know, thanks. I appreciate it. You know there were talking back and forth in discussing this and all of a sudden he gets a a message from the government government of China and they they asked him. Or they don't ask him. They they force him. Let's let's let's tell if her how it is and they force him to not only giving her prints but make a statement saying that he was spreading false propaganda propaganda that hurts, you know China and that is false and he had to agree. That this information was false. Can you imagine you're sitting on this information? You know that something's about to pop some things about to happen. Your doctor your you've sworn oath to protect people with all your might, you know, like the Spider-Man movie. You know, this is a Cheesy line.

To saying that it was propaganda and that he was lying. While more and more patients got sick of the virus. I can I can just imagine what he was going through and I don't think it was fun. Approximately a week goes by and It's all over the news when you wake up. the doctor that came out with the news of a SARS looking virus.

I mean, why would a person like this lie? He's sworn oath. He's he's dedicated his whole life to doing this. Why would he lie about such a thing? I mean it just screams corruption. I my thoughts and prayers. I feel like that's not enough but really goes out to his close friends and family. Cuz he was doing the right thing. he passed and he became a hero. I I just wanted to just talk about this for a second. I know it's a podcast and I make podcast episodes and usually comedy but I just wanted to shout out and give Shout out and tribute to this doctor. That dedicated his whole life to protecting people. And had to by force. Do something that he was not. willing to do to protect himself in his family I mean just wonder what would have happened if you wouldn't have. Agreed to them. Anyways guys.

EP75 Coronavirus and Stock Market Drop
"This is volume vesting. I'M NEW HOST. June Kim in this podcast. You'll learn everything related to volume best tullow follow investors. Thanks for joining the show. This is the show about value investing so in the LAS episode. I talked briefly about coronavirus. And why it's GonNa have some negative impact on the economy and whites the real problem and during the time of the recording in the last episode it was at the beginning of coronavirus crisis and I think back then. We didn't really have serious. Stock Market dropped but as of this recording. The stock market has gone down from three thousand. Three hundred eighty. Two two right. We are sitting in two thousand five hundred forty one. So it's about twenty five percent drop and it's significant draw and We are clearly in the bear market territory and probably a lot of you guys have invested a lot of money in the stock market as I do so maybe some of you guys are getting concerned and so guys have some serious emotional issues with the stock market dropping. So I want to dedicate this episode to the topics related coronavirus. I was thinking about covering Warren Buffett's annual later but right now honestly what's on everyone's mind is cornell virus stock market crash so. I thought that it would be nice to cover this topic in detail because number one. I don't want my listeners to make wrong choices and decisions during this crisis and also number two there are people like me who have invested one hundred percent of my net worth into stock market but still can leave in a peaceful way emotionally. And that's what I want to talk a little bit more about. Why that's the case for me. And maybe that could be the case for you as well so before I get into the details. Let me give you a quick disclaimer as always that this podcast is for that purpose. Only and it is your responsibility to consult with your investment professional for any investment decisions. So let's get started so now as I mentioned that as a b five hundred index is sitting at two thousand five hundred forty one as of this recording and it's about twenty five percent draw from the peak so many of you guys probably are getting concern about coronavirus. Even if you consider yourself to be a long term investor so of you guys are still emotionally attached to the net worth by your stopper folio and also you probably GonNa Check your stock portfolio every single day just to make sure that your keep up to date on the latest news and Lightest Obama developments and sonal so forth. So let's talk about all of dead on and see what's actually best for us as long term investors so before we get into all dad let me just reiterate why this is a really serious matter for the real economy and why does stock market drop could be justified by the real problems there. We are seeing in the world by now. You probably a lady have caught up on all the news with respect to corner virus in the US. And since I'm leaving in New Jersey Area I also getting concerned I'm not particularly getting concerned about my stock portfolio folio. But I'm getting concerned about their health of my family and also getting outside because things are very serious outside so that's what I'm getting concerned and this virus health professionals. So maybe I'm not the right person to consult with in terms of Korea virus and the danger of corona virus. But from what I have heard and from what I have read in the news this virus is just getting very very serious and this spreading really fast from person to person. So it's really a good idea to stay at home and tried to implement social distancing as much as possible and that's also the recommendation of by the government and what happens. Everyone is getting afraid. And what happens if people don't go outside and spend their money the economy definitely. It's GonNa Shrink because people will not spend money on restaurants will spend money on airlines cruise lines and also there will be a lot of industries negatively affected by Cornell virus crisis and because of that the whole economy could actually plummet in terms of GDP worried terms of any economic measures. So I think it's getting serious and also from what I have heard the vaccines will not be available. So let's just take a moment to think about it because right now. The trump administration is trying to implement a lot of different policies in order to boost up the economy. I think he's administration is trying really hard and also senators and all the politicians are you know are on the same boat because they really care about this country and they're really caring about boosting up the economy and also trying to put some controls on the spread of coronavirus but the problem is the Federal Reserve. I think has a lady decreased interest rates and also there are measures like very very strong stimulus packages. That will give literally money like thousands of dollars to each household in order to boost up the economy. I think that's all good but what's really missing. I think everyone knows at this. Point is a vaccines or any medicines and cures. That could definitely control these fires. I think no matter how much money you actually put it into economy. I mean that's going to definitely increase the supply of money. But that's not GonNa cure about the fact that people are not going out you have to think about the demand side and demand side has just plummeted quite a log because people are just getting concern about going outside and I assumed that had a lot of airline companies in a lot of cruise line companies. A lot of companies in travel related industry have been hammered completely by this corner virus crisis. And it's going to be like that for at least for the time being because people are just not booking tickets and there are just not traveling and there are a lot of people. Right now quarantined because of fear that some people having the symptoms of Corona virus can spread this virus to other people. So there's a lot of implications because of self quarantine policies and also sue the government imposed quarantines and so on and so forth and that's why we have seen from other Asian countries like China or South Korea. So if you just pause here and think about what it means. By the government implementing a lot of these stimulus packages. They're trying to increase the supply of money in the market. Normally dead worse if you look at financial crisis were other crisis when we have very huge downturn in GDP and any of this economic measures if the government implements any of these measures then there's literally a huge man in companies borrowing and also people are trying to refinance their mortgages and also trying to buy houses and so on maybe it could happen But what really to me is to get the bottom of the problem by developing vaccines. But there's a silver lining here to this problem because let's say as investors probably our portfolio have gone down by thirty percent are at this point but if there's any positive news on vaccines were any medicines. Then I think stock market is gonNA react in a very very positive manner you know. I know that all of these vaccines and medicines have to go through a lot of different faces in order to you know get it out to the market and to the public but any good news is gonNA actually boost up the stock price of a lot of these companies in the market. I think that's how I interpret but the problem is the vaccine is not gonNA BE AVAILABLE. Anytime soon. That's what I heard like. It takes time. It's just like having a baby even if you want to have a baby next month. That's just not how it works. You just have to waste certain time in order to see the vaccines because you have to go through the human trials in all these things to make sure that these vaccines are safe for it to be deployed to a large public. So just GonNa take a while and people are saying the one year even one and a half years and if you don't have these vaccines available sometime soon then economy definitely is going to suffer and also this administration is trying to get back on track in terms so posting up the economy and also you know letting people do their work But I don't think that it's going to really work out. Well I mean you may have different opinions. But it's just definitely GonNa take some time until things get normalized so I have talked about all these things. I probably guys know a lot of these things in detail but what I like to focus song here in this episode as given all this. What are we supposed to do as investors and there could be many first situations in many different advise? You can follow but let me just talk to you from my perspective how you can do. And that's exactly what I do. So I have long term capital that I don't need to tap into in any time soon so within short period of time on this capital at all. That's why I have a lot of money tied to the stock market when I think that the vaccine is going to be available let's say within two years and when I know that if a vaccine becomes available there's to be strong rebound in the stock market and the economy. I think that truly believing then I just leave it there and I don't check my perform deal at all like during the day. Were during this market gyrations. I checked a steal the S&P five hundred index price and also how much marquette is moving up and down every single day. But I just don't go to my online brokerage account and check my per folio because then I'm going to be distracted and I'm going to be affected negatively and emotionally about the stock market movement and my net worth movement on a daily basis. So that's normally what I don't want to do because I just now sleep are and nine without worrying about all these things because in the long term I truly believe that the stock market is GonNa get back on track. So that's one strategy that I implement on how you guys handle all these market gyrations in volatility. But that's how I handle but if you look at right now the stock market over the last two weeks it just became casino worried just became Bitcoin cryptocurrency market. One day you see the stock market going up by ten percent. The next day it's going down by ten percent. Five percent movement is just nothing right now. The people don't even talk about five percent movement and every single day you see ten percent up ten percent down and that became new normal at this point on this unprecedented time period and whenever I have my money available like any of my Discretionary income available. I tried to invest in this market because I think there are a lot of good companies are selling very cheap price. And they're getting cheaper as time goes by and people are getting fearful and that's what Warren Buffett said when people are fearful you become. You need to become greedy and when people become greedy to become fearful and Def definitely. There is a fear in the market. That's the emotion that completely dominates the market in the US and also in the world. So if you just Geron you should be able to find a lot of Gu companies selling cheap price. But I'm not saying that you know right now. Smp five hundred selling cheap price war. I'm not saying that certain markets are cheap. So you just have to do your own homework. In terms of finding good individual companies and then assess their intrinsic value and then just compare that intrinsic value against the market value and see whether or not that individual company is giving you a lot of margin of safety. So that's the job and Hall Mark. You have to do by yourself. I can potentially pick out. Some of the individuals. Curies stocks are for my listeners. But I don't think that that's going to be a good way because I know interest value of certain companies and I can stick with that even if the stock price goes down by more than fifty percent because I just know the Intrinsic Value. But if you hear someone talking about any stocks and you buy stock then you probably going to be selling those stocks at the wrong time because you didn't do your own homework and you just don't know the real intrinsic value of their company so it's always not good idea to buy stocks based on other people's advice but it's better to do your own homer by looking into balance sheet by by also thinking about the prospects of the company in the near future and so on and so forth and you buy into that stock so. I think that's the best strategy but anyway so the thing that I'm trying to emphasize here is that one strategy that I'm implementing is just ignore the market if you have a lot of monies sitting on the sideline right now then. It's probably good time to look around and find good bargains in the market. But if you just don't have any money just as I do right now to be invested in the stock market just ignore the market at because I think that market is going to go back up but this is just the way and strategy that I'm implementing right now and you just need to talk to your investment professional for an investment decisions as I mention on in the disclaimer at the beginning of this show. But that's the strategy at least that implementing right now. I hope that you guys stay really save and And that's also something that I'm getting concerned because I'm not getting concerned Bob my portfolio at all. But I'm getting more getting more concern. They by day about the health of people are in my community and in this country because as time goes by I see more and more people getting ill because of this virus contracting this virus as Pri- viruses spreading just very very fast manner it's exponential I can see the exponential growth off. That's what I'm getting more concern than my financial. Well being at this point. So that's one thing that I wanted to highlight here in this episode So let's just talk about some of the companies in the market that have been negatively impacted by coronavirus. There are a lot of companies in travel related industry but before we get into that industry. Let's talk about restaurants? A lot of there are a lot of small restaurant owners in the US. Undoubtedly they have been negatively impacted by coronavirus. Because if you think about yourself how you actually leave on a daily basis under this crisis. You probably going to stay home. And that's what I have been doing over the last two weeks and I just don't go outside. I just don't or food outside. I don't go out. I just by a lot of food from be grocers and just stay home and I just don't go while for eating or I just don't order food outside so a lot of these restaurant owners have been hit quite a big time because of granola bars and they have to pay their rent every single month and they have their fixed cost they have to maintain and I don't think that they could survive if this crisis lasts more than let's say three months but as I mentioned the vaccine is going to be available maybe after one year so a lot of these owners restaurant owners and small business owners are at risk of going bankrupt if nothing is done in an immediate fashion so I think the government is quite aware of the fact that that could be a risk And they're trying to do everything they could. In order to mitigate have a risk but honestly I don't know if we can actually avoid full recession because of that so that's the perspective from restaurant owners and if you think about airlines and cruise lines even if you are big L. Lines People. Just don't travel but I don't think the government is going to lead these airlines going into liquidation. They may go bankrupt But they may not go into liquidation. Because this is critical infrastructure for the US and we need airline industry so the government probably is gonNA bail out. These big airlines smaller allies probably are in trouble right now because as you can see. Nobody's is traveling and so on so forth and anyone working in conference related industry also is in trouble because nobody sees actually having conference anymore. And if you are in this business then you're in very very serious trouble and also mall's right so macy's and JC Penney's and if you look at the stock prices of those companies that are managing a lot of physical malls. There's not price have suffered quite a bit even before Coronado crisis but because of corner crisis these companies have been battered quite a bit in terms of stock price a suffering. And I think that's GonNa could actually go on a for quite some time and it's legitimate because you know people just don't spend money on any of these items and people stay at home anyway. So those are the companies that have been hit really hard by this unprecedented crisis and I think that are as investors. We just need to be little bit careful about where we're investing our money and the problem is if you. WanNa get your money out of any of these companies. Then it's also a problem because the stock price already has gone down quite a bit and it's probably not a good time when you actually take your money when the stock price is at the bottom so the best way for you to survive here on this environment to me is just diverse by Eur per folio across different industries because some industry have held up quite strongly are regardless of corn avarice. Because let's see There are a lot of online shops and also people actually stack up on food and doing grocery shopping so they spent a lot of money on dat industry so if you have some money a diversified across different industries. You probably going to be in a safer position than just concentrating in one industry. So that's one advice that I want to highlight and that's probably what you should do. I have talked a lot about coronavirus. In how you need to behave under this unprecedented crisis but I think it's completely up to you. How you want manage your money but one thing that I really WanNa highlight is that you shouldn't lose your sleep over this seriously. If it's the thing related to your health maybe make sense. But if it's really your financial position then it's probably good time to assess whether or not you're really good fit for stock investment because let's say you invested twenty percent of net worth in stock market. And now you're losing sleep over this crisis than probably you need to reduce their presentation to. Let's say ten percent or five percent in my case. I have repeatedly told my listeners that I always have my one hundred percent money tied to the stock market. But I don't lose money because I know that this type of things happen from time to time and if I see my portfolio going down by fifty percent I think I'm not going to lose sleep over this and that's what's important so I think I'm equipped with the emotions and temperament to invest my money in the stock market. But you definitely need to assess your temperament at this point to understand what is the right level of stock investment. You can handle emotionally and this is quite important. It's not about analyzing companies in the right way whether or not you're calculating intrinsic value for individual companies. That's all the second matter to me. What matters most is to understand yourself and how you can handle your emotions under this tab of turmoil. And if you think that you'RE GONNA lose sleep over this then tried to assess the percentage of your investment in this area because honestly stock investing is risky. So you have to think about all these things and this is really a good time for you to assess your emotions and your temperament and that's what I want to highlight. I hope that this episode was useful in some ways. I know that this is really hard time and in many different ways financially and also you know in a health wise so I hope that everyone stays safe and hopefully all of these things are over sometime soon but ultras tried to keep you updated on how I'm doing and how things are moving and I was thinking about and covering author of value legendary volume investors of for this episode and. I decided not to do that because number one. It's just you know unusual. Time and number two people be interested in listening to all these long term volume investing strategies at this point keeping the market conditions. So that's why I'm recording my thoughts and views on coronavirus and the market implications of that. Hopefully you found this episode useful. Any thanks for listening and I hope that you guys stay safe and let's connect again later in the next episode. Thank you very much.
Coronavirus Shows Why We Need Separation Of Medicine And State!
"Hello, everybody and thank you for tuning in to the weekly report. Corona virus shows why we need separation of Madison and state. It seems like only yesterday. Americans were denied the right to go to the churches. They were denied the right to visit their loved ones in the hospital. They were denied the right to open their business and go to work to provide for themselves and their families. They were denied the right to go to restaurants, two bars two hair salons. No laws were passed dying these rights. Even that would be illegal and immoral, but what happened was worse, they were denied these basic rights by governors, county judges, and even local mayors who used the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse to rule by decree. They Stole Power that was not theirs to take and wielded at all levels to force America into three months of house arrest, then in the midst of staying at home orders across the country, the same governors and local officials who locked Americans in their home, suddenly came around with their keys and threw open the doors. Suddenly not only was it okay to go out into the street. It was required to go out into the street. What happened a cure? A miraculous vaccine I know the officials who locked Americans up found the 'cause they felt required Americans in the street to protest police had killed a black man George Floyd in their custody in Minneapolis, and suddenly the need to protest trumped the D. to stay home and save lives suddenly the same health experts who told us we must not gathering crowds, or there will be death in the millions from coronavirus issued statements supporting gathering in crowds. An open letter on the George. Floyd protest signed by more than twelve hundred doctors and other health professionals clarified that they do not condemn these gatherings as risky for Kobe nineteen transmission. However, they wrote. This should not be confused with a permissive stance on you are gathering gatherings particularly protests against stay at home orders. Did the corona virus develop some kind of superior intelligence, enabling it to distinguish between those who were congregating for a good cause, and those who were congregating for a bad 'cause, of course not what has happened from the beginning of this shameful coronavirus episode is the politicization of Public Health at the hands of Authoritarians, two prestigious medical journals, the Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine were forced to retract studies. They had published concluding that hydroxy. Clark, when was harmful to covid patients? The rush to print the studies look very much like a political move rather than one based on scientific principles, once President Trump revealed that he was taking hydroxy chloroquine, the mainstream media and even. Journalists began attacking the drug. This is what happens. When medicine merges with the state. We get the worst of both. We career bureaucrat doctor. FAUCI telling us. We can never shake hands again and that we must stay home until a vaccine is found. Meanwhile, doctors across the globe are reporting that this variation of the coronavirus is disappearing on its own. We have a tradition of separation of church and state in the United States for good reasons, the merger of state and church invites oppression and corruption. We need to adopt this same approach to medicine and the state. We now see how this merger has produced the same kind of widespread tyranny and corruption. Thanks. For listening come back soon.

Let's Tom Days episode of everybody. What's popular pop pop in it's your boy Malanga and I'm back at it again with another podcast episode audio episode coming at you. So yep. Let's stick on the topic. Coronavirus Rona and we're not talking about the drink. I know funny story. I was I was I was going to go shopping and and off with my colleague at work and I went downstairs to the store. We had one in our building and it's pretty nice. It's great for late evenings when you worked at 22. Anyway, it's not getting off topic we go down and I felt so bad because I made a joke to my friend, right and you know, this was before it became a pandemic before it was like big news, right? So I went to the Beer sex section off and I go to my friend and I'm like amen want some Corona right? It's it's an old joke now but back then when it was just new and nobody was talking about the corona thing. Everybody was joking about the coronavirus drink right the beer so I did that to my buddy. And as I'm doing it is a Chinese guy that comes right behind on cruises. Just talking about it. I feel so bad. Oh, man, so I felt Superbad but I don't think he saw anything but you know, I feel so bad because you know, my relationship to Asians is very good. You know, I got a whole lot of buddies grew up with Asians Koreans actually on your right favorite comedians that Bobby Lee, he's Asian, right? So, okay. So some people you know, for those of you that don't know I'm half-black. So, you know, there's a little bit of that black and knees in me, right anyway, so we're going to continue talking about Corona and what specifically do I want to talk about here. Well, everybody says that they're an expert we're know everybody thinks that they're an expert. Sorry at every month. Rephrase that because go on Facebook go on YouTube go on different, you know news sites. Everybody's acting like they know what they're talking about and it just drives me crazy. Nuts, you know and especially when people are like yeah, there's this there's this man. I don't want to sound like a hypocrite though because you know, when all of this was new I watch the one at work that was talking to my colleagues and I was like, You guys know what this is pretty serious, right and it is serious. You know now it's the it's the way how some people talk about it that that just tickles me the tickles me the wrong way right and specifically saying or specifically speaking I'm specifically speaking about people on Facebook that are like, oh if you have Chrome this is what you should do to get away the symptoms and I'm no expert right but I have been listening to experts and when they're talking about this and they're not saying the same things as of what these people are saying on Facebook and all these Trends news like different what-do-you-call-it different topics different and you know people go around chewing messages, right and people are sharing messages that are fake. You know, this is when you have this this is what what will tell you if you if you have Corona or not, right and people are just getting confused and people are sharing. You know fake Photo Shop videos about people being you know, you know picking up old pictures from you know way back in time and using it now talk to you know on the other hand. I think you get what I mean, but on the other hand, there's actually one thing that is actually bothering me a lot and there's been this kind of like a trend of people hating on the Asian Community, you know during this virus and uploading videos where they'll you should harass Asian person or something like that, right? So beat him up and stuff like that. Oh you got Corona or just like, you know, bully them and I think that that type of behavior is just oh my goodness. You should get a whooping for real. Like I'm not even joking like a hate that you don't, you know, there's some people out there that just use any opportunity to just pick on some wage. Right going to hate that, you know just want to bash them, you know anyway, so yeah that Trend I really don't like that and some something, you know, there are some comedians that are actually going to bid over over course or over cross the line right? I don't really like that and I'm specifically talking about people that are making jokes about the coronavirus in a way that's not really fun. You know, I mean, it's fun you can you know, you can post I mean with these this is my opinion. I think you can post something about the coronavirus and it can be funny. You know, there's this one picture or this meme where it's like God. What was it? Yeah. So there's a Corona bottle on one side. Then there's a whole lot of Heineken the other beers and there's this like face mask around the Heinekens like do come to us off. It's funny. You know, it doesn't hurt anybody. Right but when you start coming into like oh Asians this and Asians that and you know, it's kind of edgy like I'm a bit of a hypocrite in this area because I sent this one meme to my friends and I was just being honest, you know, I'm not perfect but in this mean it was like God. All right. I'm going to pick I'm going to take a look for just 1 second. Why am I laughing? Wait one sec. When you chill it in class in the Chinese kid next to you starts coughing and then is this kid for a Spider-Man when he's like we're all going to die when he's on the bus. It's pretty funny. Anyways, I I honestly don't mean anything negative towards Asians and my Asian friends know that you know, so anyways, yeah, so so today's topic just quickly don't be an expert let the experts be experts, you know, and you don't have to go out hating on people that are you know, uploading these posts, but you can you know, correct a lawyer say like, you know, what else doesn't actually aligned with the information that you know, Different experts have come out with or or so on and so forth if you know what you're talking about and I don't know what I'm talking about like all the time, right? But just with the corona I've been a very Very not focused but I've been very I've actually done some research, you know before posting and I'm not just spreading information just like that and you know, one of the things that cause others me the most is Media, you know how they're now all of a sudden, you know, just coming out like oh it's this is the you know end of the world end of this end of that and just creating all this Panic right and not okay. There's another group of people that also take me off. It's the people that are like, it's just like, you know, it's just like this virus that comes every year, you know, there's no anything special that could happen, you know, it comes and it goes, you know, dude you can't have that, you know mentality or that set of mind when you're going into something like this, you know, and this wouldn't have been called a pandemic if it wasn't that dangerous, right? And I'm not saying that this is something that's going to you know, take down the world, but we do need to open her eyes. As to what is going on, you know and what the effects of this what affects Corona can have on not only us but on the market I'm going to make a separate page that's going to talk about how this can affect the market and how fear can lead investors or people that are invested to leave their positions and that can create handbook. Yeah anyways, so yeah, just yeah, I don't know what what are your thoughts? You know, do you think that people are kind of being silly online? I mean people just I mean, I think people are taking their their misinformed and then they're spreading that information and when you're in a bubble of people that you know agree with you about everything and you know, I'm I'm into different. Yeah, like politician groups or groups. Politics however, you say it once within the left and once on kind of like the right right leaning side, you know, and it's very very interesting to follow and see how people are following the group mentality and spreading you know, or all thinking the same thing. Like if if you're on this side, you have to think that way over vaccines or this or if you're on this side, you have to think that this is just another virus that's just always coming around don't be like that guy's be informed to open open Erin. Don't just you know, judge judge when you're not educated on the topic. I'm not saying you are but I'm just you know, Flipping frustrated. Anyways, yeah, that was a little short episode our ten minutes and I'll keep uploading more episodes. I just want to thank you for tuning in and if off, you know, my slogan slogan, right?

Also PROZAC works but since the state says I'm no longer allowed to Roy prescriptions qualified. He has our good news for you and our ongoing segments array of sunshine. Let's kick it off with. We'd Aka Marijuana Jazz Spinach Nelson manned edibles for many people. It has been an important way to get through the coronavirus lockdowns but now it turns out it might also be a cure for corona virus itself. A study in Canada has prompted the idea that marijuana can help cure covid nineteen researchers at the University of left bridge and Canada applied multiple strains of CD to cells to see if it changed their ability to be infected by the COVID nineteen virus. They found that high concentrations of CB lowered the number of cells that the virus could attach itself to the study is a pre print publication. That means that hasn't been peer reviewed and detests haven't been repeated yet. Can you believe it it turns out your high school stone. A friend who was right. We'd really can do it all and man if this really works it kind of makes sense I mean the coronavirus is on the way to infecting your lungs and then it hits all the weed and all of a sudden the viruses like wait. Where was I going? What am I doing here? Wow if you're noticed how like I'm a virus also like a like a like a thing now before you order a costco-sized Doug keep in mind that this study was released before being peer reviewed which means it hasn't been confirmed right. You see all the articles that all CBD but it hasn't been confirmed you know it's always weird to me when researchers put studies out themselves. I mean you'd think somebody else would have to put up this thirties. But they just do it themselves like mixed mixed tape rappers. You know like those guys in the streets was a fan. You like science man you like science. You want check this out. Man has got some dope reviews in the control group and in the variable group man. You WanNA check this out man. Yeah check it out. Come on look. In my opinion people shouldn't be able to put studies out before they've been verified. I mean before. I realized that this wasn't peer reviewed. I ran out and I bought a bunch of weed. What am I supposed to do with now and another big caveats is that the study was backed by a CBD company. And I'll be honest with you. I don't know why we'd people are always working so hard to find additional benefits to weed. Isn't it enough that it just gets you high? I mean there's no methods out there who are like and try scrubbing some new car. It makes it really shiny. Now you see I like it right now. Maybe getting high. Isn't you'll vice. You know. Maybe you're into something else like gambling. Well if that's the case there's good news for you too because Vegas is coming back baby. We'll the Las Vegas Strip could welcome visitors back as early as June. I see a lot of social distancing. Tables will be six feet apart menus. We'll be paper menus or will be sanitized between each and every us so. There's there's almost without exaggeration not one part of the business that is not going to change on top of that. Every other slot machine is out of service with the chairs removed as well. The same goes for the poker table to Caesar. Employees are going to be using these electronic sprayers to disinfect. The dice and the elevator buttons as for Mass are mandatory for the employees. They will be given out to guests even on the gaming floor. Something that has never been seen before in Sin City Casinos. That's right Vegas. Casinos are about to reopen. I'll be honest. I don't know if anyone needs a casino right now. I mean I feel like every time you step into whole foods. You'll placing the ultimate bit awry baby. Let's put it all on the Line for another type of yogurt. Now Thankfully Casinos in Vegas. That they're going to be instituting. Some new safety measures like handing out mosques and wearing mosques while gambling would be great especially for me because whenever I play poker. Got This thing that I do with my tongue and it's like it's like a really tiny little thing one thing's for sure though. This is definitely going to change some of the Cassa gambling traditions like blowing on the dice for good luck wiping your nose with your cards or storing poker chips in your mouse. We can't do that anymore. And finally let's check in with Mike Pence Vice President of the United States and guy who covers his eyes when Simba and Nala Kiss yesterday. Unfunny Steve Martin was in Florida to see how they're reopening going and when he stopped for lunch at a local restaurant he gave us the most Mike Pence moments imaginable vice president. Mike Pence did something this week. Many of us are patiently waiting to order food inside the restaurant. He stopped at Burger joint with Florida governor. Rhonda's Santa's yesterday Nice here. Of course Mike Pence once nut spicy this favorite spice school was Lindy on seriously. Is Crazy that Mike pence can even eat at restaurants considering all his diet restrictions. I also can't have any meat. That's touched other meats. It's a sin. Also what you didn't see in that clip because they cut it out was the pot when the employees pence if he wants breasts thighs and then mother came in and tackle the shit out of him all right. That's it for the sunshine. Let's check out today's headlines. Let's begin with some scary news from Michigan. It was already one of the hardest. Hit States of the coronavirus pandemic and now as the expression goes when it rains it pours emotional whiplash for thousands in central Michigan. This evening stay at home. Orders over corona virus were suddenly turned to calls to evacuate after a pair of Dan failures triggered catastrophic flooding. This is the moment raging water bruce through the INVOL- dam in central Michigan failed fact the breaches sent more than ten thousand people scrambling emergency responders going door to door to evacuate residents roads. Cars and homes were no match for the life threatening waters rising five feet deep in some areas. Hard to believe that we're in the midst of a hundred year crisis a global pandemic and we're also dealing with a flooding event. That looks to be the worst and five. Hundred Years. God dammit man. Michigan has been hit with so many tragedies back to back this is horrible and I feel so bad for the people who have to flee their homes during a pandemic. Now when you're loading up the car you got to choose between your photo albums and your toilet paper. Which is why I always order. My family photos printed on toilet paper. Just a little tip for you guys. This is a sad reminder that even though daily life has stopped disasters. Haven't we've had floods tornadoes hurricanes season's just around the corner and it's only a matter of time before. Kanye comes out with another album by the way really sucks is that this administration has been talking about fixing America's infrastructure for three years now but the only thing they've really worked on is the Border Wall People. Michigan should just tell trump that Mexicans live in the water. And then he'll rebuild those damn walls and no time gotta get the wall up and going. I heard they swim so fast. Build a wall moving on. Here's an updates on our old friend on Becky. The last high profile perpetrates in the college admission scandal is throwing herself at the mercy of the court.

Even though they were not rowers as part of the plea Lachlan will spend two months behind bars and pay a one hundred fifty thousand dollar fine. A newly will serve five months and pay a hundred and fifty thousand dollar fine So disappointing yet. Another rich white famous lady getting sucked into the prison system. You hate to see it.

Which just shows you how sick people being locked inside their homes with their families because two months of corona and all of a sudden. Actually your honor. I'm guilty just take me to prison. I I kind of stay around them for long if you ask me though. This is a genus time to plead guilty to any crime because with corona virus raging. They have to let people out of prison in fact knowing on Becky. She'll probably pay someone to fake corona virus test for her. Yeah as you can see here. I contracted Kobe. Nineteen while I was playing for the Olympic Team. Lost headline is about fake news. The one thing that spreads even foster than coronavirus as this pandemic has grown so to have all the tweets about how to fight it how not to fight it how it's growing and how it's not growing and now it turns out most of those opinions might not even be real new concerns about misinformation and coronavirus researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. Say nearly half. The twitter account spreading messages about the pandemic are likely computerized butts. The study found over one hundred. False narratives about covid nineteen since January. It's too early to determine who might be behind the accounts but the goal seems to be creating division in America. Yes who could be Putin out all this corona virus misinformation? That's Russian through the Internet. I guess we'll never know via to union. Thanks guys thank you and you know what you think about it. Being a twitter bought must be the most depressing kind of bought to be. Because I mean think about all the robots a- cool no you got robots that are like. I'm going back in time to kill kill John Corner got other robots like sub two and then these are just like I tell strangers that Hillary Clinton created corona virus. But still.

Welcome back to the daily social distancing show usually when we talk about coronavirus we focus on the lives lost the economy and jobs but the truth is this pandemic is changing. Our world in a million different ways and one of those ways is how educators are going to keep their classes going. We'RE GOING TO EXPLORE THAT. All our new segment teaching in the time of Corona teachers. They're the people who educate US guide. Us and force us to mutilate the bodies of innocent frogs and while teachers have always had a difficult job. Corona virus has made things harder than ever. The challenges of remote learning taking their toll on teachers. Teachers are feeling overwhelmed. They are being asked to do things. They've never done in their professional careers before converting their homes into virtual learning centers from Google. Docs to video chats our is going down a rabbit hole of a learning how to plan lessons how to put these lessons online. It's a whole different ballgame. Keeping these kids engaged when you can't actually see her face. It's very very challenging. I think registers because it's difficult to tell if students are really paying attention. We can only get the kids attention span for thirty to forty five minutes after forty five minutes. They're kind of just like Dunn's Oh and looking to do something else you know. Watch youtube or something. Man That's sucks measured pouring your heart into something. People are looking at their phones in the middle of it. Kind of like what you guys are doing right now. Yes see you when you look at your phone during the show breaks Mahad although considering that Hof the economy is now yet you based isn't such a bad thing. If these kids are more into youtube and school I mean I can show you plenty of youtube millionaires. But I can't find many knows what time to train pods each other millionaires. Or maybe if kids just WANNA watch youtube then teaches should just make their lessons more youtube like turn them into makeup tutorials or something. Okay class. So I'm going to just put a little foundation here just like the colonists at roanoke established a foundation in the Americas really. I'm not sure is much different than what happens during regular school because even when students are sitting right in front of you. They're probably thinking of youtube videos anyway. Now the war of eighteen twelve was thought between the United States and the united came down from June. But here's what's amazing about teachers.

Oh man this is the most heart warming story I've ever seen about a grown man handing candy out underage children and it's great that these educators are making the effort to go door to door and reverse halloween their students at the same time. It's going to be kind of shocking for these kids because it's so jarring when you run into your teachers outside of School Donaldson. What are you doing at the mall? Why are you holding that Lady's hand? Where's your blackboard? Living like a secret life but look if we didn't know it already.

Many Floridians are enjoying their God. Given right to beach one of them has killer protest of his own in northwest Florida. One lawyer took a bold approach to express his concern.

Yeah all right. I guess that's better. So what are you doing dressed as death going to the beach in Florida? Well we have a deadly virus that killed over seventy five albums equal and I think people need to be staying at home taking precautions not letting our beaches in our state death visiting the beaches has got to be one of the top one thousand strangest things that have happened in Florida. This week point. Daniel's been visiting beaches as death for almost a month now mostly not well received the public here there none coop leave to see his presence here like should go somewhere else in in protests. Because if you don't belong here Daniel why Floridians want to go to the beach so bad. I wanted to go beach Florida. Finally it just part of our Ian App just who we are to me. This seems like a perfect time for flirting to learn a new hobby had read I. Florida gets a bad rap. Rap and agree did a bad rap. And I'm trying to think those so daniel went should the beaches when we have caffeine and updated in preparation. You want the government of Florida to use testing data and information when in the past. They've never even thought about using.

I don't have State House in Michigan with a gun. Mcgrory deserve life. Daniel is death really the best way to communicate this message of caution temperance dies. Should we really fear death or you have semi by thousand people die within a very short period of time and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Yes it is. This is the only message that we you sorry. We're hearing Daniels say that doesn't work for me. Would you mind putting the hood back on and the mask and delivering that same message So death are you really the best way to communicate cautioned. Temperance we need to be both people. Don't this as death spoke unto me about the need for social distancing? I realized that protesting and to keep things close could be helpful even though death is scaring the hell out of Sunday. There's at least. He's wearing a mask. Maybe there was a deeper meaning. The one constant in life that death is always among us ready to bury our souls across that dark river of time. Maybe death is teaching us that. I just want to close the damn each having the opportunity to not everybody gets to speak to. The death has changed my life. I wish I could hug you right now. I wish I could come down there right now and wrap my sweaty hand not a dare do not get. Why are you getting the methods? I'm staying away from the beach.

I've learned to a in this quarantine and this is one of the projects getting better each and every time the first time between as this time it took me hours knows your four hours. Wow you've always been an advocate for mental health issues. You know you. You've always spoken out about it. You've always encourage people to talk about it. Share about get the help that they need. Remove all of the stigmas talking around mental health. And I've always appreciated you that I know that you'll foundation is doing something amazing. Right now during coronavirus tell us a little bit about that we're doing virtual fundraiser is called the Kobe nineteen Virtual fundraiser. What we're doing is we're offering five therapy sessions for those undecided. All underserved communities. Who is is so much my brain is like but those who are disproportionately affected by the colds flu. Nineteen and it's basically you know Neighborhoods that are of Brown Brown black people so right and because we don't really deal with mental health in our community. It's so much stigma around it. I just felt like a face need to be put to women then in a special time now where people are isolated and you know that they're going through things in isolation and they don't have the means on the money. I just felt like I needed to do something so it it really is. Yeah it really is a beautiful move because I feel like during this period more people have experienced and gotten in touch with what it is like to be either depressed all or struggling with mental illness in way that they haven't you know a lot of times people can avoid people can run away from it people. Some people don't even know they're experiencing it just because of how fast they life might be moving escape you can. Now you're forced to sit still and prayer and my hope. Is that people who have Sunday. You know Seeking help or just believe the stigma around it hopefully beckons take this time and his moment to to twin it to just try because literally you know we keep saying when the opens back up. We will all have trauma to get her after. This all told me something. How have you managed to communicate to people the importance of therapy especially when we come from communities I mean I know for a fact I grew up in South Africa. I grew up in a family. Where for the most part if I went to my grandparents since therapy they'd say you need to run. You need to sleep or you need. Jesus so how how? How have you managed to break through in communities that have always looked therapy as like a white people thing something that's just like a like a almost fake in many ways? I had to step up until my own story instead of preaching to people. You need to do this. I had to let them see that you know. I think the misconception of that people have of celebrities that money can't say everything you know what I mean like. Oh you had problems and it's like money can amplify your problems and like big smalls said the great poets and Google Biggie. Smalls more money more problems than he ever live. You know so with that. You had to make the adjustments. You have to take care of yourself so I felt like me coming forward and I feel like I have the community trust me. I think they still see me as event from baby. Boy You know the carry bring tangible relatable and away and I wear my heart on my sleeve as I felt like if I came for with my own issues that will free up a Lotta people and it was actually very freeing for me for me when I did and I said I finally said it on a on a national platform you know and then I'll start seeing other people speak up. It was like off. The monster is gone. You know and that's how you ARATU KATE. The stigma the more we normalize the conversation the easier. It'll be to have the conversation.

You know everyone who can go therapy and thanks. Thanks to you a lot more lot. More people can go to therapy. But there's going to be like the small things that you do just to.
