17 Burst results for "Dr Hicks"
"dr hicks" Discussed on 600 WREC
"So far, 700,000 Alabamians have been tested for covert 19 since the pandemic began. That's roughly 14% of the state. That's according to state data. Now there is a good chance with colleges requiring test and schools resuming, there could be an uptick and testing demand. There are delays in the time it takes to get over 19 test results, some of which have to do with staffing and supplies. I think it would be prudent to I asked the lab that you're going to before you get that swab done. Whitish the current turnaround time to get my results. Have they tell you that it's going to take 1 to 2 days? Dr Hicks says. That's good. But if they're telling you could take a week or longer, you may want to go to another lab Reporting live in Birmingham. Russell Jones w B R C Fox six news on your side. You're Russell and at monitoring the health of students and staff on University of Alabama System campuses this fall is expanding for use by other groups says they'll soon offer the guide safe platform to private companies, hospitals, faith based organizations and other organizations. Guide safe users can report their symptoms every three days, and it also features an exposure notification at we'll hear more about that process behind the guide safe testing in our next hour. Well, we're rapid test her on the way now Alabama and nursing homes. This time 34 facilities will get these machines are machines that the nursing Home Association says the 2 31 31 nursing homes will get those machines. And other supposed to help provide the test to get back sooner. The results to get back sooner and the turnaround on those which will help for them and 200 mitigating and keeping the any spikes from happening. The machine's Khun give those results in a matter of minutes, but they have an heir rate of about 12 to 20%. Well, some school district leaders still have some questions this morning on the protocols. Even after a virtual meeting with the state education leaders this week, the Coleman County school superintendents as one protocol causing confusion is the 6 15 rule which as if a student or teacher comes within six feet of someone who tested positive for 15 minutes, they should be quarantined for 14 days. Even if they're wearing masks. If.

"In the next few weeks we should start to get more information about that good I was wondering if doctor Hank and maybe you could respond to this what is it like in the hospitals right now H. C. M. C. and what more could one of you go to the podium and and that's what have we seen the images on the east coast hospitals over run we hear different stories here that so far it's been managed pretty well and there is excess capacity can you address that so it at north memorial we have four icy use and about anywhere from thirteen to sixteen that's a piece a couple weeks ago where the first one of course we were getting them one at a time and now our our floors full and it's stain fault because as we move people out and we are moving people out people are getting better there's more to take those belts now we've moved down to the second I see you that's going to be and that is quickly filling up our senses the slowly every couple days going up ten more people and I really get have this gut feeling that it's going to all this and start to snowball part of it is we are worried at the front lines are E. D. at cetera about the people who are coming into the hospital so we're a little by little because these people stay on these ventilators for so long I mean I worked three four weeks ago and I came back this last weekend and same people were there that's how long they're staying on the ventilator and so as it does so they're blocking up the ice use for such a long period of time so it's gonna start snowballing faster and faster Dr Hicks can for sure correct me if I'm wrong but just from looking at it it's going to snowball and they're all going to be full and you want to know the atmosphere on the floor at you can just picture although all the walls we've got our we've got our little bags hanging a little hooks on every wall space and in those bags has got our individual PP that we are using we are rationing we're being careful with it until we can get an endless supply right we're working on that right and then but and everyone is the doors are closed to the unit the phones are shut up we can't we I mean as in the sense of we can't give visitors we're constantly and full garb it's very eerie it's very quiet is very somber and it's very scary I'm sure you're familiar with the various models some show we're gonna hit a peak in late April the state model shows not till June or July do you believe that is what the scenario was going to be here in Minnesota of course this is yet to come much later after having one.

"Fact they may still be talking in the house about this issue they keep talking about the difference between scenario three in your modeling and the subsets and scenario for and their claim is that the outcomes are the same the peaks are somewhat different but the I am down on one activity is different and they go governor wire for use in scenario three yeah they're not wrong and the reason I'm not using scenario three as scenario three is predicated on two things ample amounts of PP and surge capacity and testing to get there because search scenario three gets us to the point where we have set up from the beginning we want to get to we're able to task trace isolate and bring as much things back on as we possibly can so what our point was in it when you see that again it's it's modeling switch snapshot in time it shows a trend we do believe that scenario three is the place we need to go when we started opening and thinking about how do we source the PP how do we ramp up the testing to get there that was one of our think at the time that that was put out there in the time that we extended the stay at home order we did not have that news merry said it was the it was to create that time my goal is that I think the only sustainable place is looking like scenario three and not modeling and for folks out there who aren't familiar with that and it's one point time of all the things we need to do I've said from the very beginning of the US sheltering in place tell of axing comes it is not sustainable we had to figure out a way to first understand it we've learned so much in the last month about this disease about this virus is to be able to first and foremost identify who has it isolate trace to get them and the most vulnerable protected in as you're seeing from commissioner Malcolm talks about the long term care facilities come up with new ideas new ways of doing that and then start to move people back into the workplace which we've been able to do that argument about essential work places that have figured out how to social distance and not get people sick should apply to nonessential businesses is exactly right if we have that surge capacity which thanks to Dr Hicks his team Janet everybody else work we think we're getting very close to that so I think their argument and their message spot on the difference was being able to get there and again I would remind you of this people who say again and the folks on the front line would tell you this if we just said let's go back to where we were in January and operating we would kill lots of people especially those on the front line and the business leaders I would go on this are telling us this people are only going to go back to places when they feel it's safe to go back to places talk president trump tweeted two words today in one of his tweets and liberate Minnesota and there are hundreds of people I think right now and for the governor's residence with that same message what is your message back to the president and those protesters outside your house so I tried to deliver myself I tried calling the last couple hours to the president the vice president I got I got no return my first responsibility is to protection of Minnesota's people I think we did see our yesterday the governor or the president unveiled three step plan that mirrors exactly we're trying to do he also said governors would be at the forefront and I'm sure I I just don't have time to try and figure out why something like that would happen I just have to leave from Minnesota's perspective is what we've been doing it they're not going to do what we'll do what I've been saying that I don't mean that critically that's just simply a fact but I want to be very clear if they're protesting staying home they're protesting married to their protesting our front line health of folks who need to be there I will fight to the death to protect those protesters rights to protest me every single day that they need to but I think if the idea I'm not I I'm not gonna read and what something is supposed to mean other than I don't know when I called to ask what are we doing differently about moving towards getting as many people back into the work force without compromising the health of Minnesotans or the providers and that will probably take longer than a two word tweet but I think there's a responsibility to tell us that if there's I'd like to know what they think we could have done differently because again we're leading as we were asked we flatten the curve we built up our PP we've kept Minnesotans alive and we're moving people back into the work force in a safe manner I would argue were doing everything that they're telling us to do but the difference is I actually have to do it here we actually have to do it here and deliver so that's the best answer I can give you the president is just having the flames among people who are already very very frustrated yeah I'm not again I'm frustrated do I like I said I want this to be over as much as anybody again if if I thought we could go back to work tomorrow that's that's exactly what we would do were using best practices were thinking about this we're having a very deliberate strategic plan about re opening not compromising folks I'm not sure to what purpose that means so I do worry a little bit about that I worry that again if you're going to protest social distance if if I don't think there's a debate that social distancing is the best thing we can do I think most of us recognized even when many things are open back up again at least till we get a vaccine we're going to be social distancing anyway I mean that's just going to be the way things are so yeah I hope it doesn't do that I again I will never ever stop descent in terms of being able to speak your opinion but I also think when you're advocating for for really reckless behavior that that's a different thing.

"Service at fast tracker Minnesota dot org and we'll have these up on our site to make sure that folks in their real time substance abuse whatever it might be getting in contact so please reach out no you're not alone no that we understand that this is challenging and then I'd like to also note something that we're seeing across the country and it's coming it's certainly it's here too we know that the examples are hitting communities of color disproportionately impacts on public health crisis we knew that there were social determinants of health that were already disproportionately hitting communities of color covert nineteen is just exacerbating that so our indigenous communities people of color immigrants and refugees are more susceptible to this and to die from cold but the numbers seem to be supporting them many folks are the essential workers that are carrying out those daily jobs in our community they drive the supply structure stock the shelves care for children parents and friends and through no fault their own they're now being faced with the virus so we want to make sure on this that we're taking care of that we're highlighting and know this the unemployment rate of people of color is more than double of white Minnesotans and this is a statistic none of us wanted to see the rate of unemployment for black Minnesotans is the highest it's ever been and that means that that exacerbates every other problem that's there so we formed a community resilience and recovery work group to ensure the needs of individuals computers that were already experiencing help there's disparities are part of our solutions we're going to be your talking about policy making executive actions and executive orders communications and outreach and out ways to make sure that we're hearing the voices of those communities so you can find our covert nineteen website page Minnesota dot gov backslash covert nineteen and as I said before we want to be data driven we want to make sure that we're getting all the information to the public we want to make sure that we're nimble working with our public and private sector partners and we want to make sure as best in new information comes up we act accordingly and that brings me to somewhat of a developing situation that some of you are starting to see at the JBS pork processing plant in Worthington I was on the phone with the CEO of JBS the plant manager the president as well as the representatives for the workers in the plant down in Worthington represented by UFCW six six three and the mayor of Worthington all this morning we have positive cases showing up in the JBS facility I think for many of you very familiar with in the southwest Minnesota there's a lot of movement across back and forth from the from South Dakota there's also a lot of family members that work in both plants and so there was a lot of cross work that went there across a contamination that started to happen I think the good news on this is plant management has been monitoring this they have been in direct communication with us and and I don't know those of you follow this closely this may be a plant went from nothing to shut down overnight that was not communication with the health department the way we understand it that is not the case here management has been in community action you'll hear a little bit from Chris Ayers mentor Jan on this potentially today who look at this we have spoken as I said with all of them we have put a team down there the department of health agriculture labor industry are working with the plant local officials to set up testing ensures safe conditions across the community there are about two thousand workers in this site site down in Worthington it is a foundational piece of economic activity it also again the cascade of these closing plants on food processing poses a risk to the food supply system so it's in our best interest both from an individual health perspective to keep folks healthy it's in the best interest of the community to keep it operating but it's much broader than that this is part of a national food supply system and and a large piece of it so what I can tell you is the plant is up and running that they have implemented many changes to the plan in terms of getting out PP to their workers putting up shields and they have they have indicated to us that the desire to go further I think again we know that one of the ways to get back to normal and and the JBS plant maybe a test run force on this is widespread testing in these cases is the way to go about this ways to go about tracing we know this is a big step we know that it's hard but we also know this is the path out of this to be able to test the isolated to the tracing to make sure isolating everyone who came in contact and then to move forward so we're reaching out to other processing plants across the US I would remind Minnesotans that the way we protect each other is to continue our social distancing continue to make sure that we are doing the things necessary to protect those that are most frontline and while they may be food processors we know the folks that are put at the most risk of this of the elderly the most vulnerable but those who care for them so our next to speakers are going to come after Jan are gonna lab right a little bit on this in terms of what this actually means and what our social distances in buying but before we bring up Dr Hecht and merry let's turn to John Malcolm for a little update on where we're at thank you governor good afternoon everyone well I have two days situation update from around the world and here in Minnesota globally as of this morning we were at nearly two point two million Paul infected with cover nineteen and unfortunately one hundred and forty six thousand deaths again this is a rather breathtaking speed of spread across our entire globe with this with this novel virus in the United States this morning we were approaching six hundred and seventy two thousand cases and nearly thirty one thousand deaths here in Minnesota as the governor has mentioned we have passed two thousand cases two thousand and seventy one laboratory confirmed cases up one hundred and sixty from yesterday as governor walls indicated that's our largest daily increase so far from laboratory concert confirmed cases and very sadly seventeen additional fatalities as the governor said reaching now total of one hundred and eleven so far in Minnesota nine of these were in Hennepin county to in Winona county one H. into coda St Louis clay Nicolas Anelka and right so you can see the the the increasing spread across Minnesota most of these individuals and I have been following the same pattern many in their nineties eighties seventies to individuals in their sixties in this case as of today one thousand and sixty six patients have been released from isolation so that's the good news there are currently two hundred and twenty two patients in the hospital one hundred and six of them are in intensive care and Dr hick is going to talk about how very important it is that we understand and support the health care capacity across our state so that we can take good care of the people who develop this illness I do want to mention just a couple more things about the Worthington situation that the governor just mentioned we've been very closely following the developments at the JBS pork processing facility and there has been a significant jump in cases just in the last day or so we discovered yesterday just with the number of cases reports coming and confirmed tests coming in from the Worthington area as we began those interviews it quickly became clear that there was an association with the JBS plants as of right now our understanding is that there are at least thirty confirmed cases in the Worthington area seven of them so far have been determined to be associated with JBS but we we expect that number to increase as the interviews continue Kris Ehresmann is here with us if you should have more detailed questions about that investigation down there Chris can answer those but we know from our all of our experience with this epidemic so far congregate settings are key whether it's congregate living settings like nursing homes congregate care settings like inpatient facilities of any kind and and long term care facilities in particular where we know there's a concentration of risk corrections facilities homeless shelters and now congregate work settings where there is close proximity there is a risk of of disease transmission so right now in Worthington we really are as the governor said already mounting a very well integrated response local public health involved local emergency management the plant managers are cooperating with us the the whole local community is involved because as the governor said this is not only an anchor of the community economically but we know that there is spread in the community now and so this needs to be a community response we're very grateful for our local public health partners in the health care system down there that's very well on top of the situation with us and the exactly what the governor has described as a regimen of identifying those who are ill through symptom identification through testing and then through isolating their their close contacts and testing them as well so that's exactly what we're doing to make sure that we can separate the ill from the not heal as quickly as possible and to keep them and their families safe and that it really is a goal of ours to help this plant continue to be able to operate safely we would love to avoid the situation where the only choice is widespread contamination and closure of the plant so the quicker we can get on these things the more effectively we can mount a public health response to this the more we hope that we can serve both aims of keeping the community working and keeping people safe I'm really glad that governor walls told you a little bit about doctor Hicks backgrounds John heck is special adviser to the health department in this event we're grateful for Hennepin county health care and health care system for loaning John to us he really has he has a unique resource she he is nationally known as an as an expert in that intersection of clinical care and emergency management and and John being part of our incident command structure working here in the S. C. O. C. he's helping coordinate the all the planning around health care capacity but most importantly to me he's bringing the patient care voice to every single decision everything we do is informed by how it's gonna affect patient care so it's really it's my really great pleasure to to introduce doctor here can thank him for joining us thank you commissioner thank you governor for give me a few minutes to speak this afternoon about our health care preparedness for a cow would nineteen this is a historic epidemic.
"dr hicks" Discussed on The CSIS Podcast
"I'm Bob Schieffer and I'm Andrew Schwartz of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies and this is the truth of the matter. This is the podcast where where we break down the policy issues the days since the politicians are having their say we will excuse them with respect and bring in the experts many of them from on the CSIS people who have been working these issues for years no spin no bombast. No finger-pointing just informed discussion. Today's episode of the truth of the matter I'm flying solo as Bob. Shieffer is out of town each year around this time. CSIS defense policy experts experts published their bad ideas national security series the series features short articles on recently considered not too obvious bad ideas in the defense and foreign in policy space by CSI experts and their colleagues from other think tanks. Today I'm joined by three authors of this year's edition Dr Kathleen Hicks Senior Vice President President Henry Kissinger chair director of the International Security Program at CSI ask Andrew Hunter. WHO's director of the Defense Industrial Initiatives Group at and a senior in your fellow in the international security program and by Todd Harrison Director of the defense budget analysis and aerospace security project? CSI ASS and the leading voice an editor editor behind the bad ideas series. Welcome everybody. Let's talk about ideas. We've got the Dream Team of CSIS's international no security program here and I have to ask you guys every year. We come up with bad ideas in national security. That's our signature series. Why don't we you do good ideas and national security? Why are we doing bad ideas and national security? You know it's Kinda like my kids complain that you know there's a mother's Day father's Day. Why isn't there a kids day? Hi Response is every day is kids. So that's kind of what what it is you know at a think-tank like what we normally do. Is We research we analyze. We look AH good policy solutions. What are the good ideas? And that's what we normally write about. So who are we decided to do in this series is we're gonNA take one month with this limited series stories of articles and focus on. What are the bad ideas that are out there because there are a lot of different bad ideas out there and sometimes you just need to call him out? You Know Al Right Todd. So let's start with you. This is the third year of the bad idea series. What was the thing that actually inspired you to launch it back in two thousand seventeen? I I mean you know I it was. Let's call out some of these bad ideas that are out there that keep lingering but also as China getting into the spirit of festivus from seinfeld talking talking about you know how I got a lot of problems with the use people. And now you're going to hear about it to Frank Costanza. We have a lot of grievances. WanNa grow I'm GonNa now now I'm going to be like Hello Dr Hicks to think of it as their Seinfeld. The podcast here. They just just wait two hundred coming. Okay here we go all right so todd back to you I. I'm sorry I digress. It's kind of A. You know a therapeutic thing to kind of release yes you know. What are the things that have been bugging us all year long and we decided to do it in December in the month of December as a series of short articles? So you know each person could air something something. That's been bugging them that year and since then this is our third year of doing it. We've expanded we've actually started asking scholars from other. Think tanks to write for us as well to air their grievances so it's Kinda turned into an annual tradition. That's fun I love how we've opened it up and you have other experts from other think tanks to bring their ideas into to to have they really dove into it as well you think they get into the spirit of it. Oh absolutely so todd. From the first year reached out. This is todd brainchild and he. We reached out beginning in the first year. This is now third year and every year. We have great participation from left right and center and all in between and we thought that was really important in terms of getting. You know that's part of our mission. Here is right so bad ideas. Come from all quarters and community right. Yeah so doctor Hicks let me ask you in your piece. You argue that strategy the quote explicitly says what we will not do is a bad idea. Yeah tell us about that. Yeah this this is. This is my favorite. Oh I I'll pay later I'M GONNA pick you know and this is my favorite of the bad ideas so I'm just GonNa lay it out there. Yeah so sometimes you'll hear around Washington or elsewhere military in particular in the Defense Department needs to just say what it's not GonNa do just needs to get it out there and say it's not going to do and it's very a simple it resonates with people. Yeah we'll just say what we're not GONNA do. The problem is that we point to in our piece and I did my piece with Joe. Federal Ritchie. WHO works works in the international student programs? Well shut out to Joe Shot. Joe So joe and I argue is that that may feel very satisfying but it puts you into traps. The first and biggest gift trap is when because we are inside of democracy that's driven by political officials elected by the people choices around use of force in particular dealer are driven by that dynamic and dod gets a say but it doesn't get the final say and so sometimes when dod tries to go out or even when you have officials at higher levels Try to go out and say we're not going to do this. Then you don't prepare for it and in point of fact what happens is sometimes you do it. So the classic example sample is the statement by Natch Isten that we would not get involved in Korea. Korea was outside our perimeter of interest. This in fact on the verge of of the Korean War some have argued. It's historically debatable. Whether or not that was seen as a green light by the Chinese to help along the Korean War and then the United States reversed positions immediately decided that Korea was in fact inside. It's strategic interest. A much more. Recent set of cases is around for example Syria. Where you had Obama's red line you high Obama's red line and then you had in two thousand seventeen even more recently? A statement by Nikki. Haley when she was the UN ambassador saying that. We're not sure sure that we're so worried about the Assad regime and the Assad regime turnaround used chemical weapons in that context in two thousand seventeen and then the US actually did respond so it can be very strategically not generally confusing and it can also as I said really the bigger challenge is not just the confusion but that it can lead you to be unprepared for the things that ultimately the people who elect act senior officials. Actually expect you to be ready for and then the second area we point to is the mission set piece and this is really popular one of the ones I like to point to is counter-narcotics Arcata There's almost no constituency inside. Dod that really wants to do counter-narcotics wise It's just on a mission that they see. Inside the strategic culture mission set of the Department Hartman Homeland Security Homeland Security oriented and at the time particularly in the late seventies through the eighties into the early nineties. There was a very strong push during the war on drugs associated. Mostly with the Reagan. And then I Bush administration's four judy to take a bigger role and interdiction particularly at the borders over air and sea and dod really resisted that because it seed in their mission space but again the politicians elected by the people vote. Congress cares a lot about the warranty. Europe took over from border states. And they've been very insistent on DVD having a role so there was a other examples like this but areas were D.. And people who think about defenses invest huge amounts of energy and time in pen writing about how duty shouldn't be involved in these areas when the political realities. Frankly are very clear that they're going to to be involved so what we argue instead is not. Don't have any priorities right. This is the false narrative is not the alternatives. Don't have priorities don't strategy. It's no no no think carefully. Awfully about how you articulate what you do think your priorities are very clear about those priorities. And focus on Jilay of the force to deal with the uncertainty certainty that exists in living in an uncertain world. That democracy predicts will happen for our military so we argue. It's the best focus of strategy is being clear about what you think. The priorities are and making sure that you're aligning and being clear to that political leadership and the public about what it takes to be realistic about what it takes in terms of ways and means to execute those objectives and then be ready to flex semper Gumby as the marines. Like to say okay so this is especially important now in in the strategic environment wherein I would assume the world's a little uncertain I don't know if you and your podcast little theme of the podcast so yeah Andrew. You written a piece that it might be a little bit controversial in the defense budget space by arguing that eliminating the overseas contingency operations funding which is also known as OKO WPRO or war. Funding is a bad idea. Can you explain that. Yeah well and this is where we get. I think back into the true spirit of Seinfeld and this debate because there's the variety. I'm GonNa believe me. The payoff Costanza at his fullest. Oh good because I think there's two George Constanza articulated arguments against Oko. That I think perfectly encapsulate why it's a bad idea to eliminate Oko. Okay let me just say I there are. There are lots of critics of Oko and critics and Okoh has been abused in prior prior year so there are legitimate critics of calm sitting next to one of them here at the table but there are those who take that critique to stop of sang. We'd be better off without Oko if if we just abolished it entirely. And I think that's where you step over the line into insanity the argument against Oko or critique of Oko is that there have been things included in Okoh that don't belong from there things that are enduring requirements that belong in the base budget and or things that should simply not be done at all whether they're enduring or transitory and from time to time that's happened but my argument is it's not the fault of Oko it's us so the first Costanza argument that I think you have to grasp is it's not you. It's me right. This is his famous line home. It's not you it's me. The problem the problem with Oko is the abuse of Oko was not the fault of Oko. It's the people who set the policy. It's Congress it's the people the Department who set the budget and the comptroller's office and leadership who have put things in Okoh that probably legitimately don't belong there. Yeah but we need the Oil Co. mechanism so we do. We need funding. That is not fully preplanned that can be responsive and reactive to emerging requirements. We saw this with the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan where we had to rapidly piddly spin up funding for variety of activities countering the ID threat where we needed the funding. That hadn't been fully planned out. Because we couldn't just go. You know canceled. Three aircraft craft carriers to fund the war. That would not have been smart. So we needed that flexible funding and this is evidenced by the fact that we've had some form of Oko whether it's called Oko or emerging simple title for over twenty five years right so it's going to happen right. We're going to need this money. We're going to do it in some way and the reality is the Oakland mechanism is a pretty good way. I think of doing it so you've got this. It's not you it's not argument. The second argument you get is..

"Let's say protagonists. theorem ethical rape is wrong economic the lowest supply and demand no truth whatsoever. I guess that's mainly go ahead semen. Yes no okay explanation. Okay you WANNA theory of language is that language is a social construct. How terms are defined is arbitrarily as a result of tradition that applies universally and that is a universalistic claim but then that just means ends that and all of the analytic skeptical continental thinkers at the postmodern are drawing on when they're getting their first rate P._H._d.? Education say explicitly logical trues are true only because we have decided to make them true. It's a subjective projection the truth of Madison Matic and how we have to find the axioms are true only because we have stipulated them to be so they don't say anything about the way things are out in the world. I I would challenge Stephen or anyone else to find any of these post modernists thinkers that we've discussed saying anything like that. I will send the quotation so they simply do not they simply right the history of these claims like with Kyun incubus case A._C.. Would have written the history of the Protagoras Theorem and shown that it was invented by particular man at a particular time in particular place right now. Is it true universally. We'll all we know as Kyun said that these truth claims within science get overturned pretty much every single day even just recently last year last couple of years. They've found something moving in outer space that didn't comport with the theory of gravity okay again the idea of of atoms and spaces between them. That's relatively new idea which was craziness before we discovered that are we think we discover that. No is simply. This is not ever been a claim by post modernists. They simply want to be skeptical not atheistic agnostic about all these questions agnostic and skeptical tickle hi. My name is Patrick doored and I guess my question is more for Dr Russell. How do you don't call me Doctor Right? Sorry for Thaddeus. How do you reconcile bad science with not throwing the baby out with the bathwater? Can you unpack that just a bit. I'm not exactly as far as some of the examples you gave us like eugenics or scientific racism writing rang the bathwater okay. So so what do you want do you do you want eugenics. You want people to be divided by their gene pools and then the people with inferior gene pools to be weeded the population no if you do you want a cure for cancer then then you might want to support that right. You might want to support that part of science I do. I love medical advances. I love much of medical science because it makes me healthier makes me happy or makes me right now again. Is that going to be let's think about he brought up nutrition diet right. Will those those methods those techniques in medical science always be right the best things to do so now we all believe leave what that carbs are terrible for you. Right and fat is good for you. Well remember about fifteen years ago when it was just the weather way around and wait till the next diet fed and that's just a nutrition so scientists ask a scientist the revising think truth all the time all the time. That's what you do as a scientist. You don't get up in the morning and say you know what we're done with gravity. We've discovered we know the truth. We know the truth and we're done stop. Stop studying it. No scientists study gravity every single day all over the world. Don't they study all of the questions that are the many people think are settled. There are no settled questions. This is the problem with modernist thinking right. They believe that you can get to it. You can get to an end point and find the truth. It's anti intellectual actual. If we close a question that means there is no studying left to do that means. There's no science left to do. It's also anti-science. Scientists should be and day themselves will tell you this relentless skeptical relentless questioning and relentlessly revising. That's what good scientists have always done. Don't ask me ask them. Come in from you. Go ahead the applause go. Dr Thaddeus is hey. Call me that really got. We've known each other a longtime professor. Russell is presenting to us a false alternative on the one hand. We're I say science means that everything is fixed final complete a somehow scientists have acquired this omniscient understanding and then and only then can we use the words truth knowledge and certainty but since we don't have that we should and this is your bathwater issue throw out the concepts of truth throw out the knowledge claims throughout the claim that we can ever be certain and that's a false alternative and I don't don't WanNa say it's somewhere in the middle but proper science is a low grade skepticism does have a place in in science. We should every generation every individual thing for ourselves about all of the claims but the truth is as some people do no more than others. Some people have a better understanding of the evidence than other people. Do some people have spent more time done more logic and we do know some things insights. We know that the sun generates heat for example we know Elvis gravity is actually real force in the world now when you start with the basic things those things don't get changed when we get very complicated theories of course then we need to be more hypothetical more speculative more probabilistic in and our thinkings but don't think it's all or nothing there is no truth or we have absolute infinite truth right now. We're working the territory question I Tara's. I just wanted to see if thaddeus and Stephen could comment on whether this summer gets at the distinction between your views which which is that absolutes exist and absolutes don't exist so there is an EPA episode chemic- split between subject and object in the universe people perceive things subjectively <hes> there is no objective observer. God was invented to be the objective observer but because there is no objective observer there are no absolutes there can be no absolute truth and when talk about morality. It's just silly because morality developed as a way for people to cooperate in groups and to have rules of behavior so if you're a moral realist a-list it's really silly because morality differs in every different culture in group come in fifty yeah I was always take up the issue of morality rally and objectivity those phenomenon of traffic and the rules that we have evolved with respect to traffic and what's the status of those rules and we could say at one level driving on the left side of the road driving on the right side of the road. There's No God that specifies right and there's no when we started driving flags that sprang out of the ground and said Thou shalt drive right side of the road so we decided those things and so there is with respect to many moral principles and moral rules wiggle room and decisions that are largely operated but the fact is that human beings are real the factors that cars are real. The fact is objectively so that people want to get various various places the facts are that if people collide with each other in multi ton vehicles they will be damaged so there are objective facts and objective values that we are trying to resolve in a social context and we make rules rules to say there has to be one side or the other. That's an objective fact if we're actually going to get to our places safely so it's a combination of objective facts objective needs that we have identified properly that leads us to make certain decisions but. Often there are as wiggle room in those particular decisions and that's where the so-called subjected element comes in coming Thaddeus I second way you said I don't know if anything okay next question my questions for Dr Hicks. I'm going to frame it in terms of an intuition pump so we don't have to argue about the parameters so imagine a world where there are advances in neuroscience and psychology that we can say eight by age ten that this individual will be a sexual status or a psychopathic killer to put it differently we can say with scientific certainty that these individuals will impinge on the freedom of others if they are left for eight so my question is what happens to your epistemological claim that all humans have a birth rate or I forget you said but essentially a right to freedom the the right to freedom is not infringed. Everybody still has the right to freedom but you're right to freedom ends where other people's freedoms are being infringed upon so you're Sata masochistic killer. They're not all right so once they <hes> they don't have a right and absolute rights to engage in those kinds of action so what I would then say is it would be a normal police thing if you have good knowledge that someone is likely to commit a crime then you engage in surveillance but you engage in surveillance to the extent that you have good evidence you get search warrants and so forth so I would say yes in the science fiction scenario. The police should start following that guy around very closely now. They're not going to be any prior restraint but ah yes you put a security coordin- around that guy to prevent him from engaging in in the actions not very libertarian view. I must say it sounds like minority report to me except worse you with eugenics attitude. Uh next hi my questions for thaddeus. I wanted to follow up on a question that came up earlier about science whether science has has made any definitive claims yet or whether it's always evolving and Stephen brought up a few examples my my favorite is the earth is round so I want what I'm trying. I'm trying to I would like that is weird explained to me how to rep my mind around this post modern way so let me be very specific. How would you or how could I think of the world is round as not true in a universal way right? I mean that seems to me a scientific claim it was it was achieved scientific methods but how could it be. You seem to be saying that it's true maybe within the context but not outside that context or within within the context of certain claims but not universally total. How do you wrap your mind around this idea that the earth is round this claim the earth is round is not universally true? I would say okay. Well doesn't matter does matter. Please go heckling from the audience thank you it. was that a flatter throughout their Outta here. That's just not true. It's just not scientifically. We know this. Oh okay okay. Okay please right. It's not know she's actually right so I maintain so so I it was flat and everybody was completely sure it was flat everybody right and you were burned at the stake disbelieved that and then everybody believed it was a perfect fix fear and this kind of getting era. We're coming from right and now it's sort of oblong and bumpy and not exactly round right well. Here's the question then should we then stop studying. The question of whether the earth is round. No if you're a scientist you study everything you keep researching. Maybe this is not answering your question but wasn't claiming the my question had nothing to do with how the exact degree to which it's rally. It's just that it's not flat.

I appreciate it. Bye. Bye. Well, I to just cover with Dr hick before we get them off here. I want to talk a little bit about vitiligo that we we mentioned this is what most people call Michael Jackson skin ride, this the white patches. So give us some what is it? What do we do for us? So like I said before it's an auto immune disease, actually. It's a condition where your own body's immune system is attacking those pigment making cells, and so they die and they disappear. From the skin leaving white patches behind we could use that to treat melanoma, couldn't we. You know, you don't wanna do that. Why? Okay. What happens when you do that? Well, I mean, you don't want an autoimmune disease, but I guess some of the new medicines. Some of the new medicines were using though are immunomodulators that are basically targeting targeting. Activating the immune system against the tumor. So in a way, I guess, that's that's correct. You're kind of doing that. But did you hear that? You gotta that's occur. Another. That's a correct. This happens to him all the time. He throws something out there that seems like kind of kooky. And then in a roundabout way, it was a really good idea. Air. They'll be no living with. It's interesting. Some people with vitiligo do have underlying thyroid disease. There's some crossover in some of the photos or something like that. Exactly. We treat this with usually with topical a mix of topical steroids and actually UV light something we often avoid in some patients, we give as medicine to to these patients to try to re stimulate the pigmentation of the skin. Does it work? It works. It works. Very well. Except in certain locations on the hands and feet. It's very hard to get the repayment to come back. But on the hands and feet, generally. You don't have a lot of pigmentation backs. Angers, and it can be very troubling for a lot of people who have it because I mean, the hands are one of the things that everybody sees when they see you. They see your face in your hands. So when people have gone those places it can be quite concerning. There are some good cover-ups the that match skin tone. So you can check with your, you know, your department store makeup counter to see if they have any of these make-up's. Okay. So if you have a Redskin use green cover up what if you have this you just get a color of the skin and match it. Yeah. Exactly. There's some really good foundation like a make-up's that can be applied to the face or the hands or wherever you need to know, if you're going for job interview or to a party, and you don't want people asking questions about it. That's something. You can do. I just tell them. It's contagious. Glad to meet you. It's not contagious. No, it's not contagious. You know, I could keep you on here for hours. There's so much.

"Different things we're going to cover everything from at need skin cancers to white spots. You name it. We've got a special guest coming in the studio here with us a board, certified dermatologist and Durham pathologist Dr Ryan Hicks. You're gonna wanna stay tuned. All our scientists have been searching for the secret to immortality. Probably since they first grasped the concept of death. It's time for the mortal minute today's immoral minute. We're talking about macular degeneration, so study out of the Washington University in Saint Louis is looking at macular degeneration and identifying aging immune cells, specifically macrophages in a a specific protein called micro corna one fifty. That could be a target leads to macular degeneration, or at least allow us to diagnose people that are at higher risk of macular degeneration, so very common. I think it's probably the number one source of blindness in elderly patients is the macular degeneration grandfather had that we may be able to have a test is in the future that would pick it up before. I oftentimes tell patients, you know, they they go and they get diagnosed with early macular degeneration, and they'll get a recommendation to start on some vitamins. Yeah. And it's usually higher doses of vitamin A and things like that. But why wait till you're told to start them? Right. You should we should all be taking some additional supplements ahead of time to slow that down and protect against it. But you gotta be careful because you can overdose on vitamin, and you have to watch that is one of the places that if they're taking their occupied or whatever that is recommended and they're on a multi multi, and then they're buying the stuff off QVC that's for healthier CNN right out of vitamin A stuff. Preparations skin care products that they can't get toxic vitamin as one of the vitamins that there can be toxicities with. So tell patients always list all the supplements, you're taking in addition to your medications for your physician every visit don't leave a lot of times. They don't they they'll just say, you know, what their blood pressure medicine, or what this isn't. They don't even think that oh, I need to tell my doctor that I'm on this supplementary that supplement or will one of the things that should be standard practices someone even after they list him should review that medicine list. I mean, we we actually have a check Mark that says meddlers reviewed and part of. That's like I see you're on this. For blood pressure diabetes. Are there any other medications? You're taking no any over the counter supplements or other things, and so it should be reviewed at each and every visit I agree that standard care if it's not being reviewed than well. I'd hate to dementia gas, but I would say probably not happening at every practice. But then we've got a special guest in with us. Dr Ryan hick. He's actually in the studio is board certified in dermatology as well as pathology as a graduate of both BYU and Duke and Dr Hicks serves as clinical assistant, professor of dermatology at the university of Texas Southwestern. So that's UT southwestern addition to diagnosing specimens on a daily basis. He attends dermatology clinic at parkland hospital and for those you outside of the Dallas Fort Worth area. Parkland is a big hospital there in Dallas. And he served on several committees of the American society of Dermot pathologically man, that's a mouthful. It is. I gotta ask you, Dr Eric why did you decide to go down the road of dermatology? When I went into medical school. I thought it was going to become a cardiologist, but during my classes during my first year, I noticed that I really enjoy looking at the patient and seeing something wrong on the skin something, I could see and hopefully treat dermatology was perfect for that. I remember specific patient in my student health clinic, I was visiting who had this rash all over their skin in common rash that young people get called, Peter ISIS, Rosa. But I was just amazed that you could diagnose it, and then tell them what's going to happen. Just by looking at their skin. I wasn't following a number. I was looking at the real right there on the skin and same thing goes for dramatic pathology. I love looking in the microscope at exactly what was happening in the tissue. So we dermatology. Dermot pathology. Was it hard to make that? Now, I'm looking at a page of I'm looking through a microscope rather than I'm putting is on them or do. You make that connection between. Hey, this little sample under the microscope belongs to a human on the other end. Oh, absolutely. Think about that every time because when you're trained as a dermatologist, you're trained to think about okay, what's happening under the skin at the microscopic level. Whether the cells doing what inflammatory pattern is going on there. What does the tumor? Look like, what could it look like if it's a skin cancer or something like that? So they blend together. Very well. Well, I want to before we get into cancers and things I want to cover some basic things like acne because this is a big problem for a lot of teenagers. But they're still adult sometimes the have acne issues. Absolutely. So Agni by definition bacterial infection. So acne vulgarities is multifactorial Nigeria do play a role, but it involves the hair follicles and typically hair follicles in areas where you have a lot of oil glands, there are hormonal factors that caused the oil glands to secrete too much of what we call. Sieben that's the oily material that comes out of your hair, follicles bacteria live off of this. And so they can overgrowing those hair follicles at the same time, there's some inclusion of the hair follicle due to overgrowth of the Carrollton, basically plugged up. They get plugged up. Exactly. And as a result, the bacteria can overgrown causes an inflammatory reaction to the skin that looks like a pimple. So the cystic acne the kind that hurts people get the that's like so painful, so painful because it's plugged up at the bacteria of overgrown underneath and their way to get out. So basically, what happens is the hair fault could get so plugged up at ruptures. And then you get an inflammatory reaction to all that bacteria had one of those like, the most painful thing in the world in some people who actually have it have multiple ended up scarring from it. Yeah. There's a severe form called acne Congo Bata where they get them all over their face. We have fancy Greek and Latin terms. All right. So did you take a new Russian while you're a BYU too? But did you take? No extra foreign language. Yeah. I was gonna say you could like really pass all the bars just taking Latin right, right? You know, what I everything means? There's another thing that's often called Agni rose Atia. That's a very different picture. Let's paint that we've just got a minute or two. But let's paint that with that looks like so you're talking about Santa Claus earlier. You know, he's not a drunk. He's not a drug. Exactly. Break. Now, the typical picture you paint for someone with a Celtic heritage who has the rosy cheeks, actually, it's it's more diverse than that. And we see in all all different skin types. But it is there's different forms. There's a what we call earth. Tadic? It's fancy way of saying the rosy cheeks type with. Yeah. Dilated blood vessels on the cheeks. There's also a form that looks more like acne vulgarity where you get little pimples. Mostly on the cheek sometimes on the chin around the mouth, and then there's another type called rhino final where you get the bulbous nose with enlarged oil glands. So there's different types and the treatments for those different types vary. So it's important to be able to distinguish that. Is it safe to say, we don't really know all the ways to treat accusatio, right? We're getting better. There are some good ways to treat it and get it under control certain types that the red cheeks. That's very difficult to eliminate the readiness. But there are good cover-ups like using a green shaded makeup often cover up the red. Yeah. Okay. Don't go away. We gotta.

I'm good at and I hear you're you're unless pain these days because of Dr Smith's dad in doctor Hicks in the team at Woodward's. Tell us about your situation on one situation goes back about fifteen years. Actually, I was told that I needed to have back surgery about fifteen years ago, and then again about eight years ago by two different neurosurgeons, and I decided to take a different route at the suggestion of a friend of mine, and that's kind of where my journey. With would way wellness started has been seen them for about two months now, and it's been great. It's been amazing. Tells what about the pain without getting too in depth into what's going on. But what we're what was going on? And how bad was it? I guess is what I'd like to know, you know, the pain. It's kinda relative. But the pain for me was really more stiffness and Aquinas, and it was pretty much throughout my entire body starts in my neck and for years, I've not been able to actually turn my head because the fusion of this stuff going on in the neck. And it kind of went all the way down. And the reason I really went and saw them once because I was having issues hip was giving out and at one point five I'm getting to a point where I'm not going to be able to walk. Okay. So you went in and saw the team. And and this is great because we recommend that folks. Go to see Dr Smith Stanton doctor Hicks, especially if you've been told that you need surgery. So may cases, you don't need to surgery to get pain-free. How did they help you at Edward way? Rehabbing wellness. I haven't been doing a series of decompression with their decompression equipment on I guess the compression table, and I started doing three times a week going in for thirty minutes and having them stretch my neck and followed by an adjustment. And they're just I've ever had been great after my first adjustment. I had no more pain, and I've had been since then that's amazing. So. Chelsea what life's like now. I mean, can you turn your head? And and learn. Oh, my I can't I actually felt like an owl the other night. I was able to turn my head and speak to someone in the bleachers behind me. It was it was a big moment for me a little bit of advice. Don't try to go all the way around because it doesn't work quite as well as the alive, I've been told. Well, that's what my kids think. I can. Yeah. Well, that's great, man. I use have made my day Kayla. I gotta tell you. What what would you say to people that are tuned in today? You know, we've had the team from would way rehabbing wellness on the consumer team. We've been talking about our goal is to get Houston pain free. That's a big goal. But what would you say to somebody today? Living their life in pain. They're taking the pain meds. Maybe they're thinking about surgery like you or they're being told oh, you need to go in for for the for the ABC surgery L. It's going to be great. What what would you? What would you say to those folks? I think as strong message to everyone that has been told they need surgery with the jets don't check it out. Otherwise, I go and get them to run your run, your xrays, take a look and see what's going on is they can help you. You know, great. I think they can if they can help me I think they can they can probably help most people are so good Kayla show last question. What are you doing? Now that you weren't doing before when. When you couldn't move your neck. I mean besides looking back in the bleachers. And and probably you're probably a little better driver. Now as well. I would think that is true. That is very true. I can actually turn my head over my shoulder with much more ease to turn my whole body. Did you find that it, you know, and pain is kind of insidious it just kind of sneaks up on you? Did you find that just your outlook on life improved as you are? We're paying for you. I mean, they just the world around. You looked a little bit better. Maybe you're a lot better. Yeah.
