Biden's V.P. Pick Is Said to Be Imminent
"Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has reportedly narrowed the list of candidates to be his running mate. There are three leading contenders early front runner Kamala Harris. Her stock dropped slightly following loyalty questions following her attacks on Biden during the first Democratic debate. Also California Congresswoman Karen Bass, the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. She recently tried to clarify her position on Cuba and Fidel Castro. The Trump campaign is zeroed in on her past trips and former national security adviser Susan Rice. She sold her Netflix shares last week, causing speculation she's getting closer to the top Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Duckworth's are also still in the running along with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Experts think Biden's choice will both shape the future of the party and be the smallest possible Target for president Trump Jackie Heinrich reports. The announcement is expected mid week

And held it in the boy, get that border back and you know the headmaster was spent. You know I, I couldn't let that happen. You know because he should've told one of the teachers or the Star thought.

Any said don't worry. Mom never wanted me to worry and he said you know. His friend was downstairs. We'll deal with it. You know, but we know just over the weekend, it became quite agitated and wouldn't settle and then. In the night, he wanted to go out and. An I you and I couldn't you know. I said. No, you can't do that. Anyway. We talk. She calm down talk and then he decided he'd like to go. Patient to See what was wrong. So he's the.

Trump takes executive action on economic relief
"This is America right now by the numbers. Some five million people have confirmed Corona virus infections. Just yesterday, 55,000 people tested positive. Covad, 19 killed 1100 people in the last 24 hours, and more than 30 million people are relying on some form of unemployment benefit. Congress has failed so far to agree on a new relief bill. So yesterday, President Trump signed executive orders to extend a number of temporary economic measures, and all of this is happening as we race toward an election in November. We're joined now by NPR's national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Hi, Mara. Hi, Lulu. So the president spent a lot of time slamming Democratic lawmakers yesterday and rolled out economic relief that we should say is temporary but aren't Many Senate Republicans dead set against extending these extra benefits. Yes, they are, but they're also supposedly against any president. Usurping Congress is constitutional power of the purse that is the power to tax and spend. But politically for the moment, at least, this is a point for Trump. He gets to say Congress couldn't or wouldn't act. But I did, even though there might be a lot less than meets the eye with some of these executive actions. It's unclear if the unemployment extension will actually happen. And when it comes to the eviction relief, for instance. The memo he signed merely tells federal agencies to quote consider if evictions should be stopped, so maybe less there than meets the eye. Meanwhile, we should note that the pace of the presidential races, of course, picking up and Vice President Joe Biden is giving more interviews and doing more public speaking and Republicans are watching. And they have AH, weaponized some of Biden's answers. Well, some violins, answers have been what we call gaffes. He made another one while answering your question. Lulu on a panel consisting of black and Latino journalists. You asked him a question that would was very important to Latino voters in Florida. You asked him if he would reengage with Cuba. Here's what he said. What you all know, but most people don't know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With incredibly different attitudes about different things. Unlike the African American community, why bring up African Americans at all, and suggests that they are monolithic in their views. So this is another gas. Biden's recent gaffes are often about African Americans. Remember, he said. If you're voting for Trump quote, you ain't black. They're always unprompted. And it's inexplicable, given the support he has among African Americans, given that African American voters saved his candidacy, But is this a winning strategy for the GOP? Well, look, they depend on Biden making gaffes. They're hoping to use them against him. But the big question is. Maybe this is like 2016 when all of the outrageous things that Trump said that Democrats thought would hurt him. Didn't Biden's poll numbers are pretty steady? Why? Maybe because this race is a referendum on the incumbent, and the big question is, Will it stay that way? Will trump succeed in making this race into a binary choice?
Leading Democratic VP Contender Bass Defends Stance on Cuba
"Democratic representative Karen Bass, a top contender to be Joe Biden's running mate, is defending her past travel to Cuba and the sympathetic comments she made after the death of Fidel Castro in 2016. Past, says she was trying to express her condolences to the Cuban people when she referred to Castro with a title that roughly translates as commander in chief but is reviled by some Cuban exiles in Florida. Bass, who represents California in Congress, said she was unaware of the phrase is political significance in Florida At the time, she said, she wouldn't do that again and realized that that was something that was just shouldn't have been said after talking to colleagues from Florida.

Pandemic May Push Cuba To Ease Restrictions On Tightly Controlled Economy
"Leaders of Cuba have been promising for years to ease restrictions on their tightly controlled economy. Now the pandemic, maybe forcing them to actually do that. NPR's carry con reports. When you hear dollar store, you probably think discounts right? Not in Cuba. Last week, the government opened dozens of new stores for shoppers with hard currency, euros and dollars. They're anything but cheap. As video blogger Frank cameras showed off after sneaking his camera phone into one of the store's Havana in a friend's strolled the stock dial's checking out prices. 30 bucks for a block of Gouda cheese, $11 a pound for a beef steak way beyond the reach of most Cubans. And it's not just the prices that make the store's off limits. It's the hassle of getting into one problem. What I'd have to get up before don grab a bus and then wait in a line that every day seems to be growing longer, says Enrique. He works for a state agency and didn't want to give his full name for fear of Reprisals, He says. Last time he looked The lines were at least several hours long. Cuba's government is hoping residents will endure the weight and give up their Stashes of dollars, mostly sent from family abroad. The government's even dropped a 10 per cent tax on all dollar transactions. They have a liquidity crisis. Ted Hankin of Brew College in New York is an expert on the Cuban economy. This is a quick way that they can Transfer the money that's in the pockets of Cuban citizens and or their relatives abroad to Philip. It's empty coffers so that it can buy things abroad like food and fuel, which the government can't do with a Cuban pesos that is worthless on international markets. The island's economy has lost subsidies from Venezuela suffered increased sanctions from the Trump administration and now is reeling from the collapse of tourism because of the Corona virus. So along with opening the hard currency stores, the regime now says it will loosen restrictions on Cuba's growing private sector. President Miguel Diaz Canel, in a speech broadcast on state TV this month, said the country can't keep doing the same thing because the current economic model isn't producing results that Cuba needs. So now, the government says it will give private businesses more legal protections, allow them to import and export goods and give them access to cheaper wholesale markets. Richard Feinberg, an economist at the University of California, San Diego, says the reforms are definitely a move in the right direction. However, there are reasons for some skepticism. Many of these measures have been announced before several times, so the proof will be in the speed and efficiency of implementation of these measures. Feinberg says. Thes air all things Communist leader Raul Castro proposed a decade ago, but we're stymied by hard liners in the party. He says. Maybe Castro's handpicked president will have better luck. Perhaps now, perhaps course there's no transparency. It's hard to know. But perhaps now the reformers have gained the upper hand with the supported President Diaz Canel Libert. Fuente is optimistic about the government's willingness to make the moves, especially given the worldwide economic slump. He owns a computer workshop in Havana.

MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues
"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was Tear before the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that players try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month. The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101
Coronavirus: When Will the Vaccine be Ready?
"Cuba seems to have the coronavirus under control, but a lot of the world continues to struggle in the past six weeks. The number of cases worldwide has roughly doubled doubled in six weeks for many of us hope lies in finding a vaccine with me to talk about the latest vaccine research and efforts to ramp up. Production is the world's global health corresponded Alana Gordon along this week phase. Three trials started in the US for one. One of the leading vaccine contenders. What does that mean phase three trials so the biotech? Madeira I'm with the national. Institutes of Health has started this phase three trial, and what that means is thirst killing of testing of the vaccine. People recruiting some like thirty thousand people where some get placebo. Some don't because at this point. You don't really know I. Have The vaccine approach that's been developed in the lab in these smaller scale phases. Whether that actually works. You also have to figure out how the dose works and side effects and this company Moderna it's not the only candidate. No, definitely not. There's an Oxford trial with Astra Zeneca. That's already been in three. That's being tested in the UK south. Africa and Brazil Marco for overall. There's like two dozen vaccines and human trials. At this point, governments are placing their bet than some of these front runners to try to get that vaccine available. Because let's you figure out something works. You don't have the time or space in a pandemic to then be like okay. Let's start figuring out how to scale this up. What does that all mean for access as people are like predicting when vaccines going to be ready, so they can make it. The conversations are on access are happening right now, and they're complicated, and they're full of ethical issues. I talked to Monsef slowly about this. He's the chief advisor for Operation Warp speed. It's this new government program. It's really in the hot seat because it's focused on getting a vaccine for the United States by January hardest step, frankly for access is forever vaccines. And, that's what we're. Aiming to still billions of dollars are going into figuring out these different vaccines. The US has narrowed it down. He says to eight vaccine candidates, and then they've also been agreeing to manufacturing contracts, but in all of this slowly says that the companies have agreed to share data from their research on these trials with the world. For him right now is focused as if you can figure out the right combination of a vaccine approach that is a game changer for all vaccines, Frank H, the the most valuable come. Next to of course, the vaccine noses themselves is. What does it take to be protected? Because then everybody can go and do that. Alone, I understand that, but they're still. The manufacturing part of the vaccine has to get made, and then how does distribution to what countries get prioritized? I mean. If you look at the past, we shouldn't be surprised with what we're seeing. An which is that geopolitics is all over this I mean. There's a global race for a vaccine also for access to it. Countries are trying to do this for their populations, and what that means countries that have more resources wind up getting the contracts I I talked to Raji Than Kaya. He's with the company Takeda about this, but he wears hats because he has worked in the US government on Pandemic Preparedness Nausea, Global Vaccine Access he does worry about this trend with all these countries. Now that we're seeing lineup for contracts I hope is that there will? Will be very little time between when significant numbers of people say in the US, get vaccine, and when the rest of the world gets meaningful volumes of vaccine. Are there efforts being made right now to broaden vaccine access when that vaccines developed? Yeah, absolutely and Sovan Kayak is actually on the board of the Coalition for epidemic. Preparedness Innovations full is called often referred to Steffi and they're working with the world. Health, organization. The idea is to bring in as many countries as possible to lower resource and higher resource countries to come up with these contracts with manufacturers, and the idea is that twenty percent of populations would gain access to vaccine. Not all countries have signed onto this like the United States. It tends to be that the lower resource countries tend to bear the bigger burden of diseases of pandemic for longer. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much. Thanks Markup.
The Great Escapes with Life Death and Taxonomy
"If you've been staying inside as much as possible these past few months. That's a little easier to do now that the summer heat has fully set in your probably anxious to get out to fly the coop as it were. Animals who can fly should be getting out of zoos all the time. It would stand to reason. Though. usually therein enclosures netting across them, or they've had their wings clipped. That's a process of trimming off birds largest flight feathers, so they can't get enough. Lift when they flap which I'm probably going to end up doing to our backyard chickens if they don't knock off the free ranging. Birds generally stay in captivity pretty well, but of course there are exceptions to the rule or I wouldn't have brought it up. In two thousand, five and African Flamingo managed to get away from the Sedgwick county sue in Kansas. A massive search was launched, but The crabs backup singer was nowhere to be found. Until two thousand thirteen, when he was spotted, six hundred and fifty miles away on the Gulf coast of Texas among a flock of wild local flamingos. Bird watcher named Neil Hayward have been able to confirm the flamingos identity by the numbered band on his leg and offered to help recapture it. The Zoo essentially said I'm not even mad. I'm impressed and told the folks in Texas to leave the Flamingo to his new life with a mate who had herself escaped from a Mexican Nature Reserve. Anyone who's dealt with a parrot knows that they're too clever by half, and that certainly applies to Cuba the mccaw a resident of Vancouver's Zoos Parrot Gardens. Even, though the suet taken all precautions to prevent the parrots from escaping, it seemed that the clever girl was hell bent on getting out. On a pleasant Spring Day in two thousand nine zoo staff had moved the parrots to an outdoor enclosure. A little while later, their headcount came up short. The keepers weren't panicked. All the birds had their wings clipped. So how far could you have gotten? Surprisingly are considering. She hitched a ride in an RV. Juba got into a compartment near the vehicle's Engine Bay and hung out for three days before the family in Rv, found her. Luckily they were on one of the more stationary parts of their vacation and had only gone twenty miles, so it was barely out of their way to take what I'm assuming was a very annoyed parrot back to the zoo. Anyone who's watched? Jailbreak movie knows that you won't get very far without stealing a set of wheels. Try to imagine the end of the great escape without the motorcycles. No good. Even one? The Indian spectacle at the Berlin soon knew that. In two thousand and four, he rode a log across the moat, the rounds, the bear habitat and scaled a wall to freedom. Now that he was out, he had to use this time wisely. I stop the zoos playground. Terrified parents rushed their children away while one had a jolly go on the merry go round and went down the slide. After getting bored of that fairly quickly, one wandered off only to find a bicycle across his path. When he stopped to examine it perhaps to assess it for its usability as a getaway vehicle, the keepers who had put it there were able to track him and carry all three hundred pounds or one hundred and thirty six kilos of air to his habitat. And potentially dangerous could also describe a gator named Chuckie who got loose from the Alabama Gold Coast in two, thousand, four with a little help from Hurricane Ivan. Zookeepers hadn't been able to evacuate the gators and the storm surge destroyed their enclosure, setting them loose. Them meaning plural gators, though only chucky got any real publicity. Rapidly due to the fact that he was twelve feet or three point seven meters long and weighed about half a ton. That makes for better copy. Zoo officials weren't as worried about Chucky, going native, as they were of Chucky, going up to people expecting to be fed as he had for the past fourteen. Here's a situation that could get very ugly very fast. Luckily dedicated alligator retrieval team from gator land in Orlando was able to catch chucky less than a week later. Some animals get by with a little help from their friends or even from strangers. Three kangaroos staged a daring escape from a wildlife park near Frankfurt Germany. The name of whom I am now going to attempt to say. The hawksbill shoot par concert. It is what it is taken early vote. They escaped by going under the fence. Thanks to the work of a Fox and wild boar.
Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert continues to impress
"Game. It doesn't count the standings. But, boy Oh, boy, I watched Friday night the Inter squad on TV, Luis Robert Too long home runs. This guy looks like a monster. It reminds me of Felipe Alou is managing the Expos back in the I want to stay in the mid nineties, and somebody asked him about this young prospect named Vladimir Guerrero. And he had not played in the big leagues yet, and Felicia's answer Wass. When you just look at him, you think superstar and that's almost the same thing you get. When you look at Louie's Robert because time during spring training, you just look at him and he just looks. Like he's going to fill that part of a superstar he has. There's just a GN it factor. And then you watch him play and it solidifies every year. Everything you think about the guy and it's almost reminiscent of like I said what Philippe has said about a young unknown Vladimir Guerrero at the time when he was coming on the market. The White Sox and mean they didn't get him cheaply. It was think $26 million for a guy you don't know if he's going to turn out, but you didn't hear Yankees Dodgers. Cubs, red socks like the ones that have the highest payrolls. Why was that? I know the socks have done a magnificent job getting Cuban players going all way back to Minnie Minoso. Tha Jose of Bray you they've got Moncada. But why were some of the heavyweights not chasing this guy? You know what I wish I had a specific answer for you. I don't have one. But I will say what? You just reiterate what you just said, and amplify on it. The attacks have been a really good job of scouting the Cuban players. Now Moncada was signed by the Red Sox and came in the trade from from Michael Kopeck. But with Michael Kopeck, I should say For sale, but it's just one of those things where the White Sox I think maybe they do their homework better than anyone else. And that's why they were able to get a guy like Louise Robert, because He just looks like the really, really feel He does just looking at him, and then you see him in the box, but it's like, Oh, my God. How good can this guy be? Um You're right. It wasn't cheap. But it wasn't like out of this world money either. And, ah, kudos to the White Sox Foreign office and they're scouting. You know, this is the work of scouts. Thes air, not analytics driven. Data. You define a guy who has never left the island of Cuba, where you don't have a lot of information. This is scouting. And obviously you look, I'm a big proponent of scouting, and I'm a It's frustrating to see how it's being minimalized and Almost extinguished in some places, but there is still a place for scouting. And here's a prime example. We're talking to Pedro Gomez from ESPN. When you look at a team
How Governments Are Using Cellphone Data for Surveillance
"Download an APP whether it's a game, a run tracker, or even whether you make it a prompt asking you to let the APP. Access your location. It's probably not news to you that if you say yes, the advertising industry then collects that location data from you packages it up and sells it, but you might not know that they're not just selling your data to marketers and other people who want you to buy stuff. People in the advertising industry are also selling it to the government are Puerto Byron Tau has been looking into this and he joins us now to explain. Byron, thanks for being here. So you reported on a team of researchers in Mississippi, they use some of this location data to track a group of people in Russia. Where all did they trace them? So. This was part of an open source intelligence project paid for by the US military, and these academic researchers were looking at drone test sites and other military facilities across Eastern Europe, including in Russia, in as part of this experiment, they were looking at where people present at these drone test sites are military bases were going where they traveling back to Moscow where they meeting with members of the Russian presidential administration or foreign officials. Simply, where were they? They going and by tracing their cellphone movements. They were able to find out a lot. One person that they were tracking went on vacation to Cuba another person went to this sort of key geopolitical strategic vision in Azerbaijan others went to other secure Russian military districts. You know what we found was that it was pretty easy and pretty extraordinary to get a level of detail about the movement of these purportedly Russian military officials and or military. Civilians with access to military facilities and track them around the world. So like you said these guys were researchers. They were academics. They were not intelligence analysts. So, what were they doing with this data? So this data comes from a commercial vendor. A company called Babel Street which is publicly in the business of monitoring social media. They offer a lot of services to local police, departments and governments at all levels to monitor unfolding situations, but they also sell this little. Little add on called locate ax, which basically is a feed of data drawn from the advertising industry on millions, if not hundreds of millions of cell phones and these researchers partnered with Babel Street. They got some funding from the US army, and that's how they were able to pull this kind of data and do this kind of analysis. And what exactly were they setting out to prove? Well, they were trying to demonstrate to the army, the power and the usage of open source intelligence so the kind of data that you can buy on the commercial market stuff like cell phone data, but there's also all sorts of other data out there so social media data data from Web Forums photos that people upload to social media sites. All of that has real legitimate intelligence value. If you know where to look and what questions to ask, and so, this project was part of an effort to show the military just how powerful this kind of data could be. I think consumers have kind of a low level understanding that whatever they do on their phones might be you know data being collected about them, and they kind of see it as something. That's probably just annoying. It's a way for you know advertisers and marketers to target us with hyper specific advertising. How common is this other more governmental use will? We don't know the? The extent of it, but it does seem like from my reporting. The this kind of acquisition of commercial data is of increasing interest to governments around the world, not just the American government, but others and it raises real privacy considerations right because when you consent to an APP tracking you, you may have some understanding that marketers are looking at this data, but most consumers. Consumers don't understand the flow of data in this world in this ecosystem means that pretty much anyone can get it from foreign intelligence services to their domestic political opponents to you know major intelligence agencies, law, enforcement agencies, and so this date is all out there you know in some cases. It's quote unquote anonymous. It doesn't linked to any one specific name, but patterns in the. The world, tell people a lot about you. An analysts can use movement data for example to figure out where phone is at night, and that is a strong clued aware that person lives, and can be cross checked against property records, so all this raises a lot of interesting and unresolved privacy questions about just how much notice consumers have about what's happening to their data? This legal. That's a good question. courts really haven't grappled. With these questions in general, the government has taken the position they've consumers opt into tracking. By and large purchase of that kind of data is lawful, but we're really on in a new frontier, because courts really haven't had to consider exactly what it means to be carrying around a tracking device, a microphone and a camera that could be turned on by adversaries or hackers, or even foreign governments all the time, and so the privacy impacts of this are just beginning to be examined by lawyers. Courts privacy advocates in governments. What if these companies said about your reporting about these partnerships with law enforcement? Speaking most of these companies, especially the ones that are selling cell phone data are trying to operate below the radar by and large. They have refused to discuss their products with me. In fact, Babel Street has a confidentiality clause in its standard license agreement that prevents the user from even disclosing the existence of their location data product, and so a lot of this is being done secretly. Even as these companies are telling the government, don't worry. This is one hundred percent you know consumer. Data, it's one hundred percent publicly available no issues here with privacy, and so that's a really interesting paradox that I found as I've gone about reporting nece.
How Fast Can Lizards Evolve?
"We usually think of evolution as being near cosmetically slow process, and often it is after all living beings in our relationships with our environments can be really complex with dozens of genes, coming together to create the traits that help or hurt our chances of survival, but you don't have to be a germ or fruit fly or P. shoot to show change quickly. Today's episode is the strange story of a particularly swift lizard evolution. Stuff it's Christian Sager here so evolution takes time, but just how much time it takes is the issue. How long for instance did it take? Theropod dinosaurs to evolve into modern birds tens, if not hundreds of millions of years, but since the turn of the last century when American biologist Hermann bumpiest noticed that individuals sparrows in a population became larger as the result of one huge snowstorm, scientists have been observing instances of short bursts of evolutionary progress over a significantly brief period of time. definitive. Of rapid evolution are tough to come by though even in these days of advanced genetic testing, but a recent study published in the journal Science fines that over the course of just a few months green, a Noli lizards living in the area of the Mexico Texas border evolved rapid genetic tolerance to cold weather after an unusually frigid Winter Green Noli our warm weather reptiles that evolved on the Caribbean island of Cuba. They found their way to the mainland long ago, but a prolonged an extreme cold snap can really put the hurt on A. A population of no lease, the winter of twenty thirteen did just that before that year's famed polar vortex hit. However, the research team collected a no lease in August to find out just how cold one of these lizards could get before its motor function was compromised specifically, that is when it couldn't write itself. When it was knocked over, they collected no lease from five different sites across Texas and found that when gradually cooled in a chamber in the lab, the individuals from the southern most site became uncoordinated at around fifty two degrees Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit or eleven degrees Celsius, but the ones collected from the northern most site became unable to right themselves at around forty three degrees Fahrenheit or six degrees Celsius. Because the scientists already had genetic samples from the lizards in the first study when a few months later, temperatures plummeted to lowe's that hadn't been seen in fifteen years, the researchers went out and collected some of the surviving lizards from all five sites. They placed them in the same cooling chambers and found the southern. Most anomalies exhibited much more cold resistance than the ones had been. been collected back in the summer they could now stand strong in the face of forty three degrees, Fahrenheit or six degrees. Celsius aren a sequencing before and after the cold front also revealed significant differences between individuals from the southern genomic regions before and after the weather event by the way. Did you know that no lease? Living in urban areas have stinkier feet than their country cousins?

Using AI to Improve Drug Companies Regulatory Performance
"Ronin thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me on. We're GonNa talk about regulatory compliance, which may be an area that's not well understood a outside of the folks who directly are involved with it. I thought that the work I Cuba is. Interesting because it gets at the way, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems have the potential to transform all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry. We we hear a lot about how data silos impede research, but. I. Don't think people tend to think of this problem as it exists within a company on the regulatory side of the business, how big a problem is the creation of data silos in terms of regulatory compliance? Daniels a great question and it's. The one that we have been wrestling with tens of solutions because it, it is a growing problem I think it has always been an issue at. A healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, but I'm with the huge increase in regulatory requirements, changing regulations additional regulations. It is a growing problem and. In. Most companies have set up systems. Very they're very point solution base. The safety group will have their system regulating teams have. This is have multiple systems whether it's a publishing system. Tracking system. Validation systems can be different, and then the quality systems are also independent. It's an one of them and act. And so that? There's a lot of Ju- -plication interns of cross-referencing. Duplicate entry of data. And it makes it very hard and the administration regulation compliance reporting. A lot of work goes into. Trying to ensure that the data is connected and clean so that the submission timely end of good quality. As you think broadly about the the range of challenges. Companies face with regards to compliance and keeping up with changing regulations and. All of the high volume data they touch. What are some of the other challenges? I think the key one really is around into the evolving regulatory requirements. I mean if you think about Marketing of product in one hundred fifty countries, and each country has a different set of requirements when it comes to frequency and data that they require either on safety real of a product or something as simple as manufacturing chain, sure label change and having to do that across multiple products. That are on the market multiple. Those levels is a huge burden on companies I mean. The larger pharmaceutical companies have teens of over two thousand people looking in this space and a lot of what they do is a. Regular operations is collecting information sifting it from various different sources validating that to make sure that is accurate, and then understanding what the requirements are for the submissions that every country. As I think about the types of data that a regulatory department might touch. I think a lot of unstructured data. Things that don't lend themselves to automation. How labor intensive is this area working? And what's the opportunity to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve efficiencies and reduced time and cost? So. That's a really good question and I think you know one thing that is quite surprising to many people. Is that even in a clinical trial setting nowadays seventy percent of the data? Doesn't come through the traditional case ripple. Scans. It direct lab feeds. It's connected devices increasingly as we started to use them in clinical studies, so there's a huge amount of unstructured data. And, this is where machine learning and. Becomes really important because. Certainly NLP can be used to extract information. From these unstructured data's. Catalog it and then put it in a full that can be used in traditional safety, regulatory systems and I think that is where we see huge benefits from the use of. The more

"Who would be doing the the Cuban government? That's a really interesting question because. Naturally the Cuban government is going to deny this. But some people from the US side would be tempted to agree with them former. Officials from the Obama Administration believed that if there were a weapon and play, Cuba would definitely not be the person or the organization pulling the trigger. Really Yeah. You're setting me up and I appreciate it. I think it's just because. It's the US embassy inside Cuba. There have been tensions there for a long time. Between the, United States and Cuba and it seems like if you're attacking them as if that's your target than it would be motivated for some reason because of those tensions. At least that's me coming from a complete. Novice of International Affairs Side I. You I think that's completely reasonable to that doesn't. Seem a far leap to make according to a foreign policy adviser for the Obama Administration. A guy named Ben. Rhodes go Ben's. This is. It's sort of. counterintuitive to blame Cuba for this roads says I don't think the Cuban government is behind it. He was also involved in negotiating the opening of the rapproachment between Havana and DC. Well, that is true in round this time we're like you in the United States are going through kind of reconnecting right I says roads. These things apparently started in December at the same time. Attacks starting the Cuban government was frantically concluding agreements with US US being the Obama administration signing business deals in other words trying to preserve. Preserve the relationships, so the notion that at the same time as doing that, they would initiate something that's so obviously designed to blow up. The relationship doesn't make sense but you know it does make sense. What's that a splinter group within the government or within the some intelligence agency that's functioning in the Cuban or the United States government or an yen agent of chaos. Who doesn't want the relationship to go? A. Jet Copter, of, sorts, I could totally see that happening. Somebody even from the US side, this complete speculation sure. Someone from the US side that didn't want the relation relationship to be rekindled. And so they do an attack on the US embassy to make it look as though relations are souring, so this takes us to another question, which would be who then would be? The hand that moves the sonic weapon. It could be. Is You proposed a splinter group on the US side or on the Cuban side who doesn't want to see the relationship open reading or wants to at least maintain a status quo of isolation on Cuba's end. Other people will point the finger at some of the US's longtime recurring boogeyman. Similar case was reported in Ouzbekistan a USA ID officer and his wife had symptoms that closely matched what was happening, or what the what the employees in Cuba said was happening to them, and this led some media sources to blame. Russia say the Russia was deploying this. They did it in his Beca Stan. They're doing it in Cuba interesting because.

"This episode contains explicit language vicious history listeners malcolm gobble all here. I've written a new book called talking to strangers and it's about the mistakes we make in our interactions with people we don't know talking to strangers features features con artists and socio pass and spies it talks about how drinking affects the way we make sense of others i spent time with a psychologist who ran the c._i._a.'s interrogation in program and the man who spotted bernie madoff before anyone else and i try to get to the bottom of a heartbreaking encounter between a police officer and a civilian and which resulted in the death of a young woman named sandra bland in texas. I think it's a book that will prompt a lot of conversations and arguments which as as you know from revisionist history is what like to do. I'm very proud of it and there's something else. I'm proud of with talking to strangers. After making four seasons of revisionist vision history i've fallen in love with a kind of storytelling that could be done to a podcast and i decided that i wanted to bring that same approach to the audio book talking to strangers. Normally an audio book is just the author or someone. The author hires reading into a microphone. I didn't wanna do that. I i want to make this audio book of talking to strangers as compelling as an episode of revisionist history so if you listen to the audio book you'll hear hear the voices of the people i interview and if i'm describing some historical event you'll hear archival tape for courtroom scenes. We have actors reimagining meaning what happened. There's music an extraordinary song by genomics scoring. We even have excerpts from other audiobooks and podcasts like the fantastic mastic believed from n._p._r. And michigan radio i think the result is a completely different kinds of audiobook experience much more powerful moving engrossing anyway rather than describe it. I thought i would give you a special preview so here. It is chapter three of talking to strangers done the new way so let's take a look at another cuban spy story in the early nineteen nineties thousands of of cubans began to flee the regime of fidel castro the couple together crude boats made of inner tubes and metal drums and wooden doors in any number of others trae parts and set out on a desperate voyage across the ninety miles of the florida straits to the united states by one estimate as many as twenty four thousand and people died attempting the journey. It was a human rights disaster in response a group of cuban emigres in miami founded llermanos risque brothers to the rescue they put together a makeshift air force of single engine cessna sky masters and took to the skies over the florida straits searching for refugees from the air and radioing their coordinates to the coast guard llermanos. L risk saved thousands of lives. It became heroes as as time passed the emigrants grew more ambitious the begin flying into cuban airspace dropping leaflets on hannah urging the cuban people to rise up against castro's regime the cuban government already embarrassed by the flight of refugees was outraged tensions rose coming to ahead on february twenty fourth nineteen ninety six that afternoon three are monacell risque planes took off for the florida straits as they neared the cuban coastline to cuban air force is mic fighter jets shot down to the planes out of the sky killing all four people aboard the response to the attack was immediate united states security.

"On the live from Washington DC is Marguerite humid- as she directs the Cuba program at the Washington office on Latin America, and before that was a senior policy adviser to the secretary of commerce where she worked on Cuba issues, Marguerite. This has been a bummer of a week for people who care about US Q relations. But thank you for joining. Yeah. My pleasure. So Trump imposed these new restrictions on Cuba. They limit non-family travels to the island they limit how much money Cuban Americans can send to relatives. Back home in Cuba in it also allows exiles to sue the Cuban government if their property was seized in the past. And so in making this announcement John Bolton the national security adviser again referred to Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua as quote the troika of tyranny, which is just such a terrible phrase, and it sounds like the axis of evil, but they're into it. I guess so my first question for you. I mean, President Obama in our friend Ben Rhodes undertook this, you know, historic engagement in D thawing of relations with Cuba. What is left of that work how much Trump unwound at this point? And so a lot of the a lot of the stuff that has been unwound kind of the more the more public things like these the opening to travel. The ability to send remittances are things that remain. There is still a bilateral process whereby save like security cooperation counter-narcotics migration accord, those things are still discussed bilaterally between the two countries. But you know, it's anyone's guess how long those things survive. And and I would just note the the fact that we don't have a fully staffed embassy in Havana is having a serious negative effect on those bilateral agreements. Don't a quick question on that. And the issue is that because of some of the health issues that people are facing where they thought there might have been a sonic attack. That was leading the hearing loss or concussion like symptoms for people or is this a policy choice by the Trump administer. Nation. I would say it's it's something that has gotten slightly politicized in the current environment. But yeah, absolutely. It's because of the because of the health incident because of the lack of certainty, but the dramatic reduction of staffing at the embassy, which is which has been in place for which has been place for more than the past year makes it almost impossible to do things like processes he says or just hold normal diplomatic relations or any of the bilateral talks. Whether that's my Gration or counter-narcotics, those are all affected because there just aren't enough people there to to do this work got so question for you about the specific actions. President Trump took was recently. How do you think that decision to limit travel to limit remittances will impact people on the ground in Cuba and Cuban small businesses? Yeah. All the stuff the thing. That's so that's so frustrating is is that the administration and. Looks like Michael Rubio have consistently said, you know, we're doing these things to benefit the Cuban people when found all of the things that they've done recently. Whether it's whether it's eliminating the baseball deal, whether it's you know, it's cutting kinda travel all of that directly negatively affects the Cuban people the fact that you're no longer going to have remittances, which are which are really the lifeblood of the Cuban private sector.
