"Director and the influenza division director for the CDC centers for disease control and prevention it runs about an hour and a half committee chair is Democrat it beneath Johnson of Texas this hearing will come to order and without objection the chair is authorized to clean a recess at any time let me say good morning and welcome to our witnesses of today's hearing on vaccine science and innovation small pox once played the world's population killing approximately three hundred million people in the twentieth century alone smallpox is the only human disease to be eradicated thanks to the relevant of the vaccine another devastating disease polio had just thirty three cases reported worldwide in twenty eighteen compared to three hundred fifty thousand cases in nineteen eighty eight every day vaccines are saving lives the specialize of children and other vulnerable populations there's no such thing is healthy skepticism when it comes to vaccines unfortunately there is a well funded this information campaign targeting the public and weakening public health laws vaccination requirements have been commonplace in the US the generations and exemptions were granted only for legitimate medical reasons however in my home state of Texas the number of unvaccinated children his spikes since twenty two thousand three when the Texas legislature expanding the exemptions to include non medical reasons the number of exemptions rolls from two thousand in the year of twenty third two thousand three the fifty seven thousand last year we're seeing this three played across the country an innocent children of falling ill health officials have confirmed twenty one measles cases in Texas this year and twelve hundred the sixty one and nationwide sixty one of which lead to serious complications as the first nurse elected to Congress I have been dedicated to the improvement of public health my entire career the science committee may not have jurisdiction of the health and human service agencies but we have long had a role in supporting improved public health through good science this morning we will explore the science and innovation challenges for vaccine development through the lens of influenza for the hilt is among us the flu just lays out for several the flu just lays us out for several days with no lasting sad if it's hot for the very young the elderly pregnant women and other vulnerable groups the flu can be deadly the centers for disease control recorded an estimated four forty eight point eight million illnesses and seventy nine thousand deaths during the twenty seventeen twenty eighteen flu season approximately six hundred of those deaths which children each year influenza vaccine production begins with the collection analysis of data many months before the beginning of the flu season the challenge with influenza is that the virus is change constantly and by the time the flu season begins the vaccine may not fully met the circulating viruses scientists are working to develop viable and more effective alternatives to the color current eight a basic vaccines as well as a universal vaccine they will not require annual updates yet another scientific chalice been fluency and many other infectious diseases in Italian complete diseases is incomplete data an antiquated data systems through modernization of data systems and data analytics tools across the federal and state levels we will be able to accelerate vaccine research and development for many diseases we have two expert panels that will help us understand the full cycle from basic research the vaccine development production and deployment and surveillance the witnesses will also describe the role of federal agencies state agencies and the private sector including the partnerships among all stakeholders I want to expand my warm welcome to all of you this morning and I want to thank the vice chair got the better of for his leadership on this issue I look forward to today's discussion I might say that I have a mark up in another committee so I will have to leave before we get through all of the deliberations the chair now recognizes Mr Lucas for an opening statement good morning Cheryl Johnson I would like to thank you and vice chairman Vera for holding this hearing especially given that we are in the middle of flu season in the United States nearly a million individuals are hospitalized for the flu every year including more than forty eight thousand children in Oklahoma since the nineteen for the twenty nineteen flu season began on September one who's been at least one death and seventy three hospitals rations from the flu however these numbers would be far worse if we did not have vaccines vaccination is by far the most the best flu prevention measure we can have today it's easy to forget the little over a hundred years ago the world faced one of the deadliest pandemics in history the nineteen eighteen H. one in one epidemic also known as Spanish flu it killed an estimated fifty million people worldwide including roughly six hundred and seventy five thousand people United States medical technology and countermeasures at the time were limited the isolation and quarantine influenza vaccines did not exist and I antibiotics had not been fully developed yet thankfully due to basic research advancements were made both in treatment and prevention the flu the development of vaccines is placed played an important role in reducing and eliminating deadly disease I can still recall my father stories about how late summer and fall were terrifying time as a child because of the threat of polio during those seasons lucky for me I do not have did not have to experience this fear because of the first polio vaccine being available the United States in nineteen fifty five and thanks to widespread vaccination polio it's been nearly eradicated the United States just thirty three cases reported in twenty eighteen however polio remains a threat in some countries with the world becoming more connected through modern transportation it only takes one traveler with polio to bring the disease in the United States and as I'm.
Effects of the Solar Wind
"The wind speed of a devastating category five hurricane can top over one hundred fifty miles per hour hour or two hundred and forty one kilometers per hour. Now imagine another kind of wind with an average speed of zero point. Eight seven million miles per hour or one point four million kilometers per hour. Welcome to the wind that begins in our son and doesn't stop until after it reaches the edge of the Helius fear the solar wind. The Corona is the Sun's inner atmosphere the brightness that can be seen surrounding eclipsed sun and home the continually annually expanding solar wind right now. The Parker solar probe a NASA mission launched in two thousand eighteen is orbiting the sun. And we'll get as close as three eight point eight three million miles or six point one. Six million kilometers of the Sun's surface Parker is gathering new data about the solar particles and magnetic fields. Also that comprise the solar wind more specifically two of its main goals are to examine the energy that heats the corona and speeds up the solar wind and and determine the structure of the winds magnetic fields while many theories described the solar winds history. This is what we do know. The solar wind impacting Earth's magnetosphere is responsible for triggering those majestic Aurora's typically seated locations close to our north and South poles in some cases it can also said off space weather. Storms that disrupt everything from our satellites and space to ship communications on our oceans to power grids on land. Nikki Fox is the division director for helium physics at NASA headquarters. She explains in more detail. How the solar wind disrupts are magnetosphere as the wind and flows toward earth it carries with the sun's magnetic field? It moves very fast than smacks right into Earth's magnetic field. The blow causes a shock shock to our magnetic protection which can result in turbulence. NASA also has another reason to study the solar wind and its properties. The solar older wind is part of a larger space weather system that can affect astronauts and technology as Fox notes we not only have to ensure our astronauts are protected from the harmful effects of radiation. We have to protect our equipment to so we've already found aluminum to be a good shield to protect our crafts from many energetic particles us but there are also faster particles that travel at eighty percent of the speed of light which can cause havoc with parts of spacecraft. They can smash into damage. Solar alert panels disrupt electronics or affect electric currents that flow along power grids so we're currently conducting tests with small pieces of technology to study. How well they can survive? In intense radiation areas knowing more about the effects of the solar wind is not only important to those of us who live on earth it will be critical to know how to mitigate its effects once our astronauts travel back to the moon and beyond for extended periods of time. Fox concludes my feeling is if the the sun. Sneezes earth catches a cold because we always feel the impact of what happens on the Sun. Thanks to the solar wind

"Eight six seven seven seven three three one zero one one. as the saying all the time on this program timing is everything. and just the other day we did issue a virgin C. Hoagland about. the news that came from NASA. regarding that they are close to finding life on Mars. and of course having regency going on to talk about it because of course he was one of the original. for the regional I guess you'd call them spokespeople or of or at least the one is did the research on some of the anomalies of Mars he wrote a book monuments of Mars. and I remember back in the day with an art bell he was always on to talk about the fears of Mars. and the last two nights ago having all the show was a rare treat for many people as we were commenting on how NASA's planetary science division director Jim green. stated that many announcements are coming soon about Mars but he believes that people will not be able to handle the news the news that perhaps there is life on Mars now NASA spokesman allergy tells said that everyone is excited about this new mission to Mars it'll be going on I believe in the summertime. they're also excited about future missions where he said that the prospects of life our main concern that a lot of excitement. about the prospects that prospects of life on Mars a lot of excitements been raised and certainly that is. their mission Mars twenty twenty we watch six summer along with the European space agency's pro XO Mars Rovers relied on bridges zero crater bars twenty twenty Rovers expected touchdown in the service of the plan on February eighteenth twenty twenty one. so. it out NASA's keeping pretty tight lipped. on any news of life but be rushed to space the rush to Mars and even you on you on mosque in others are rushing to Mars the rush to Mars is pretty amazing especially when we have. the art of this program which is a. gonna be going to the moon. in twenty twenty four so we're gonna be sitting. the city some probes other rover couple Rovers to them to to Mars and twenty twenty Ilan mosque I'm sure has a time table for what he wants to go to Mars Mars and the moon are certainly something that there in the planning stages to do now. but is there a crater is very interesting in the choice I believe is very interesting because it's twenty eight miles wide. on the western edge of the city is plenty Shia. which is a giant impact basin north of the planet's equator now NASA noted. it is home to some of the most scientifically interesting landscapes Mars has to offer adding that it was once home to an ancient river delta. were ancient organic molecules and other signs of microbial life. maybe there and they're saying they could be billions of years old or they they were probably deposited their billions of years ago in June twenty eighteen. NASA made this announcement they they said that the curiosity rover this is in twenty eighteen is the curiosity rover found quote organic molecules in the rocks from an ancient lake bed so the rocks are billions of years old. and that's what assets in their statement be before adding it had not found life okay so here they go again he said well we found organic molecules and rocks from an ancient lake bed basically the building blocks for life. but then of course you know this is billions of years old and you know now the scissors don't life on Mars within their saying you know soon they'll be announcements about life on Mars see that's the thing is that I get so I get so caught up in his push me pull you thing I mean it just seems to me that. all the indications are there are there was a study that was presented in August. that. suggested that Mars was warm and wet enough. to have massive rainstorms and a flowing water environment today it may have supported life between three and four billion years ago. so you know water from what I understand. still flows on Mars right now. edit there's water in the very near surface I mean it looks like a desert planet but still you look at it there's water near the surface of the regular that more than a decade ago. about ten years or so. NASA and their strategy in exploring Mars had been well were ever water is that's where life will be and so that is what they've done with this with this new this new a proposal to send a a Mars rover again in the summer this summer March twenty twenty the next summer and then eventually have a landing there in an area that was a lot better than it was river better ocean bed in there and then there they go it's a river delta that they're going to be putting an end to see if there's any life there so all these things. it would keep in mind right now. the and that's the point a bit they want they want to find life. and but here's the thing. there are. those there's a body of thought. where there are. people. I guess you could call them conspiracy there is I don't I don't like throwing a turnaround because of course it's like a dirty sure there were lessons from people but there are conspiracy theorists out there. that. believe that NASA has been involved in a cover up all right back. NASA. has been well aware of intelligent life on Mars as far back as nineteen seventy six maybe even nineteen sixty. all right. so I I mean I give in nineteen seventy six because that Sir yeah I was aware of that nineteen seventy six after the Viking landers for use on Mars or was. data that was sent back the indicated that there was indeed life on Mars however pass experiments in March a biology ask questions were far too narrow and even wrong and that's the problem if how NASA defines life is wrong it how NASA defines life is very narrow the questions they at the end the statistics figure narrow. other scientists have presented evidence of life right independent studies independence ideas have already presented evidence of life. so the question I have is who do you believe. do you believe NASA or do you believe the independent scientists see. the question is what we're dealing with something like this where do you put your faith. I mean is it prudent to wait for NASA. to the credit very definition of life or is out there or do you put your faith in some of the younger independent scientists say that NASA is holding back information or demand more money for exploration. that's what's going on it's what seat. if you were not as distracted many of you are not as distracted as you are you wouldn't know. there's a struggle going on right now that struggle is how it's over how we are going to announce to the world. there is life on other planets. how are we gonna do this and you know. how do they said and not. take away from impeachment proceedings that. basically it you realize if they were to just break in tomorrow. and they would say there's life on Mars is light funny and sell it is sore there's lights. I don't know I'm tighten do you realize what people would say all obviously they're using this to just distract us from Donald trump's impeachment. I can hear it now. and that's the thing is that you know the timing was perfect for disclosure we were all kind of circling the wagons for disclosure but now impeachment is on everybody's minds do you realize how much of a struggle is to report some of this stuff and have it all buried by I'm not kidding you out I was discussing this with Ron the other day I've been discussing about producers to do you realize that. with all of the research that goes into the show every night. it is so damn hard. to get through all of the other stories because I have a I have a clipping service I go through. coming service gives me information it's out of the floats around out there I have to analyze which is good which is bad in ruins while I put it up on Facebook to see if anybody you know will pay attention to it and if they don't like it I take it down or they say aw this is stupid I take it down but I read a lot of stuff with some of the stuff I read I find interesting I post on Facebook a lot of people that obviously is out quite believes we put this on for it no. it's what I find interesting that I put on Facebook and I hope you find it interesting as well there are things are funny that I put up on Facebook there things are interesting I put about face without any necessarily but when I talk about my show. people all freak out what is this is something no it's just something for you to to kind of consider. I mean even the rod Serling to The Twilight Zone he was like you know he always he submitted for your approval he would say. I met submitted for your approval meeting that I don't know if this is this is something that I believe but it's certainly something I find fascinating right. so when it comes to all of this nonsense with impeachment because all this nonsense with you know the whole collusion that we've had and all this other nonsense we've got there are people that take offense when you tell them you know what yeah I had just. yeah you're very you're news yeah you need to explore more than just what they give you and see an ad or or fox or MSNBC it because it can get really depressing really damn fast. and so. the truth is in it yeah and if you've been paying attention to a page for more so than other news the truth is is that NASA is struggling with something right now they're struggling with. what I would call. domino eight I guess you could call this a pretty damn good evidence. there is life on Mars pretty damn good evidence that could bet you that there's life on and sell it is. okay there's life on Europa. but you know it's kind of like aquatic life you have to be in the water underneath all of that ice because geo thermal the. it's your thoroughly heated so is there could be like aquatic life on these planets out of these moons underneath the ice and then we look at Mars there could be life because of course where there is water we might find life. so NASA keeps saying these things they will where there's water there's life for where there's do transcends live or whatever. you have to ask yourself okay so why are you covering it up and why are you saying we can't handle it and. do you put your faith do you listen to these new scientist to come up with these great ideas these new theories or do you listen to NASA says.

"So that gift card will at least enable them to do something and continue their lives in some kind of fashion. Now paychecks aside. Brad, the actual work that you do emergency management is of critical importance tell me about that. What has been the impact of being furloughed for these last five weeks on the work that you left off? So the work that day to day work. I work as a division director. So the grants have not been monitored. This time for the stadium. Puts us buying for the year and making sure that our grants are being taken care of. And that that money's being spent as it's intended to be spent. And in the meantime, are you worried about some of the projects falling by the wayside about lapses? And we have to look at it. We'll have to when we get back make a plan to make sure that we're doing all of the things that we were supposed to do for this year. And then again as discussed we could be in the same boat again in three weeks. So now that you know, you will be getting some kind of back pay. Do you feel like it was worth it is it like it never happened? I don't believe it's not like it never happened to me. However, I will take the money to replenish, my emergency fund in case, we're back in this back in this position again and wanna what about you. Obviously, we don't yet know if there's going to be back pay in some way for contractors. Our Lisa Desjardins reported earlier is under consideration. If that happens would that make you whole. Does that allow you to just move on? No, not really not really because I think that you know, when you have individuals who may have already been on some level of a financial crisis. Getting the money in a month from when they should have had the money to pay the mortgage on their home may not save their home. You know, it's you never know what type of situation that an individual is. And we obviously don't get into that as an employer. But I always think of that in the back of my head. We don't know where someone is how someone is living to that have their their pay for two whole cycles. That is that's a big big impact. A big impact doesn't sound. Like the announcement. Today has brought you much relief. The announcement today has brought me a little relief from the perspective of from the op-ed. You mentioned the op-ed and there was. When you do things like that, you get positive and negative feedback. And I received a phone call in my office. Luckily, I wasn't there. But the individual left a message, and he basically said, you know, I don't want my tax dollars spent like this. So I'm kind of glad and I thought about that. And I said, wow, there's so much uneducated in America, and that people don't understand how government really works and how it impacts them day today. And maybe this kind of does show people how government truly works, and it impacts you day-to-day, whether you're sitting in the middle of Washington DC or not and that there's going to be some level of education and understanding in terms of that day to day impact. And what you really are using these services for maybe a little bit a little bit of understanding. Yeah. Out of all of this Luana Russell, Fred Hoffer. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you.

Here's what's happening. One of the saddest stories, I've seen Weil, and as you know, David Politis, of course, who has been investigating missing people and state parks will be our guest Sunday night. A body believed to be that of a missing North Carolina. Boy, six year old boy with autism has been found today. According to the FBI ending a nearly long search for the six year old who simply vanished in a park while with his father Maddock riches body was located about one pm this afternoon or the Rankin lake park where he was first reported missing by his father in the police say that Maddock who had non verbal autism. Ran ahead of the father and disappeared from view while they were in the park about twenty miles west of Charlotte. The father was with another friend who's not gonna dentist. The father simply says the little boy just ran off. And I couldn't catch up with him. He was gone. David Politis who has looked at these missing. People stories will be our guest Sunday night on coast to coast. This is a strange story. How does a little six year old kid outrun you? So he just merely vanished. The story we've all been following over the past few weeks. And honestly, I'm going to report on it. Because it's a big story. But I have to tell you. It's kind of disappointing for this country that we even have to go through something like this. And you know, what I'm about to say. Following a very explosive and at times highly emotional day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee all eyes turn the several key swing votes. Senators now who remained outwardly undecided on the supreme court dominating Burt Kavanagh's fate as of late today. Ahead of tomorrow's planned judiciary committee vote on whether to recommend Kavanagh's confirmation to the full Senate, which they could vote this weekend. We shall see what happens there now. Earlier today, a visibly angry and emotional Brad Kavanagh denied under oath that he hit assaulted Christine Ford, telling senators his name has been totally permanently destroyed by these false allegations. And that his accusers testified that she's one hundred percent sure he forced her and forced himself on her some thirty six years ago. And that's how she stands. He was seventeen. She was fifteen we begin first with Howard bloom for his reaction from today's testimony Howard. Go ahead. Well, the unspoken presence of the Senate Judiciary committee chamber today was not Dr Christina blazey Ford. And it was not Brad Kavanagh. It was something we talked about last night alcohol.

All was it Rinker when he was young one of Kavanagh's five sexual abuse accusers, fellow yell student who says the drinking drinking game in their dorm Cavanaugh exposed himself to her tried to get her touch him and more capital was drunk. The Yale student who made this claim is named Debbie Ramirez. One of Ramirez. Roommates Luis Swisher says she was shocked, by the way, the cavenaugh portrayed himself as quote, a choirboy in a long interview with Martha McCallum that three. Three days ago on FOX TV Swisher was particularly disturbed by Kavanagh's claim that he never blacked out or head lapses of memory after drinking to excess on the contrary Swisher says the Cavanaugh was eighty quote sloppy drunk. I know she adds because I drank with him. I watched him drink more than a lot of people end up slurring his words stumbling included Swisher, it's not credible for him to say that he has no memory lapses in the nights that he drank to excess Swisher is not a guttersnipe.

I repeat a Republican Brooks capture mouth shot about cavenaugh until she saw that Fox TV interview which capital made himself out to be a Saint, then she couldn't keep quiet anymore. She explained the cavenaugh quote said he did not drink to excess. And he said he never drank to the point of blacking out. But says Brooks, quote, you can't lie your way into the supreme court. And with that statement out he's going too far. Now, what motivated Brooks to speak civic virtue? She says, quote, it's about the integrity of the supreme court works also credible witness.

This Brett Cavanaugh who is a church going family man, lie Kavanagh's testimony in front of the judicial committee. Today was explosive. He said he was the victim of a vast conspiracy and emotionally started crying. He started crying. And when he said the words I'm about to tell you his face was popped up and read it was like a six year olds outrage anger, and he said this whole week effort has been calculated an orchestrated political hit Cavanaugh claimed that it's quote fueled with apparent penta banger about President Trump and the two thousand sixteen election fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars and money from outside left wing opposition groups, that's the end of his quote, Dr Christine blazey Ford that when she was fifteen, you know, listen Cavanaugh was seventeen Cavanaugh owner friendship during two bedroom. Cavanaugh pushed around to the bad got on top of her grounded ships against her to I. Remover closed covered her mouth when she tried to scream at laughed. This is the new part today, and he laughed and his friend did nonstop about the fund the two of the more having it or expense cabinet called this claim a quote grotesque and coordinated character assassination. Both boys says Dr fort were drunk. They'd apparently started drinking early in the afternoon. And again, when you were drunk are you that you know comes out and takes over then thanks to the hall. You forget what you did. But his lives Swisher. Right. This brek Cavanaugh. Why about these things? The odds are very good that he lied today in front of the Senate Judiciary committee Cavanaugh said that he did not know Christina blazey Ford when they were teenagers, and he added that he was never to party the match. Dr Ford's it's a description, then he said with vehemence that the two male friends who Ford says were at this party with the two of them know me. Well, now, if if Dr Christina. Ford did not know Brad Kavanagh when the two were teenagers and the upper class country clubs set of Maryland, if they did not travel as cavenaugh claims in the same social circle how did Ford manage to name two of Kavanagh's best friends? Now, it's questions like this that impel Democrats on the judiciary committee demand to things and I background. Check on the new accusations and a hearing in which alleged witnesses to the event and character witnesses like Swisher Brooks and the two male friends who Cavanaugh says no me well could be questioned in person. Apparently they vote tomorrow. So yes, or no does the Senate Judiciary committee move the nomination onto the full Senate. Yes, or no it's going to move the nomination as long as they can hold before swing votes. And those four swing votes were confused today because as you said, Christina ward came across very very, credibly. And so did judge cavenaugh. All right now, we check in with Dr John Curtis. Online columnist dot com with his perspective, John. Yeah. Well, George I obviously I'm gonna take exception to what Howard is saying here. That's why I've got you to on the balanced this. Well, some big surprise there. Right. I mean, this is the deal George. She came there. She presented every democrat had already made up their minds. You know, before the Charing started that she believed they believe just like Howard everything eighteen age girl remembers thirty six years ago as a fifteen year old who may have been under the influence of alcohol herself at the time. So you're asking you're basically asking people, this is the bottom line who do you believe this kind of woman who is presenting herself with this shaky voice? It's streaming emotional obviously traumatized by something over her lifetime. Something happened to her some something obviously did that something admitting to Rachel Mitchell that she suffers from claustrophobia she suffers from anxiety. She suffers from post traumatic stress this over. Disorder, and she's asking people to believe that there's one incident that she went through as a teenager or somebody flopped on top of her possibly if this is her description the one that Howard gave. Traumatized or so much that as an adult a professional psychologist. It's been through. I'm gene therapy. And whatever is still this trauma victim who presents herself as somebody in the in the hearing like she's the walking wounded now how can anybody possibly trust that kind of presentation against the track record of I highly decorated Yale Law graduate counselor to an American president and a twelve year circuit court judge with the highest ratings from the American Bar Association. So I know Howard likes to focus on different things, and especially the alcohol issue. But the the fact is that her presentation today, and I said this I said that if she doesn't present herself as credible. Then this is going to tilt back in the direction of Kavanagh, which I think it has. Well, we will find out soon. John let me ask you this. If for some reason Kavanagh did this if he did this don't you think he would have scored points if he had said over the course of this. Yes, I think I might have done something stupid. I was drunk. I was seventeen but I will tell you that seventeen year old boy is not who I am tonight. Today. Do you think the people would have accepted that? No. Of course, you don't that would have destroyed him politically. He would be toast. He had to deny everything, you know, in ultimately, whether he did it whether he didn't do it. I mean, it is now his reputation against her shaky testimony Democrats think it was very credible. And I don't know how you could approve this. Now, I don't think you can never prove. That's the problem of John. Thanks. We're going to check in the Senate Judiciary committee supposed to vote tomorrow to see if they're going to move the nomination onto the full Senate. But I gotta tell you. You know, everybody loses in this situation. Everybody the poor woman who was assaulted by someone Kavanagh whose name has been destroyed.
