Outdoor president at the white house Where he hailed the new cdc guidelines eliminating need for face coverings at such gatherings. I just love the irony. There fairly he was asked about. Well wait a minute. If you're coming out we're gonna work through those guidelines just to add to the overall confusion but he. He was asked why he was wearing a face mask. Given the fact that if now according to the cdc if you're fully vaccinated and you're outdoors and you're not in a big crowd. Well you no longer me to wear a mask. And so when he was asked by a reporter well what of messaging. Are you sending by wearing masks. Even to the podium. I dunno for my money. It seems like a bit of a mixed message. Something that has become a pretty typical. Pretty much the norm. When it comes to those ever-changing litany of rules relative to go. Nineteen he said. Ah by watching me take it off and not put it back on until i get inside okay. So once again just as well. The ball of confusion relative these ever changing guidelines continues people who've been fully acceded it against the virus that causes covid nineteen. We're no longer being advised to wear masks outdoors. I guess i missed that original nemo new. If i was going to be and brian kelly. And i were just talking about this over the break if i was going to be in a crowded situation where there's a lot of people in proximity i'd wear a mouse but i mean if i'm just out walking around or taking the dog for walker i'm gonna park. No i didn't wear a mask did you. Anyway people who've gotten to maternal pfizer shots or the single shot. Jane j. vaccine apparently now well the centers for disease control and prevention have pined that we can conduct a range of activities outside without wearing a mask. Those activities include dining and outdoor restaurants with friends and attending an outdoor gathering with a mix of vaccinated and vaccinated people. How do you know if those people in your immediate sphere are vaccinated or not do you ask everybody vaccinated and if not why not now people who are not vaccinate vaccinated against the virus are being told to continue wearing masks in those situations but even people a. It's just a cornucopia of stupid. Even people who have not gotten shot can walk run or bike outdoors and attend small small outdoor gatherings without mass this according to the centers for disease control. How do you define small. Gatherings i mean is that less than ten people is it less than fifteen. Is it less than twenty people. Not abundantly clear. Oh but cdc's saying both fully vaccinated and vaccinated folks should keep wearing masks while attending a crowded outdoor events like a live performance parade or a sports game. Cdc and their official statement said. We can't provide these specific risk level for every activity in every community. So it's important to consider your own personal situation and the risk to you your family and your community before venturing out without this according to dr rachelle wolinsky Just that sound somewhat familiar year. Sounds like she's touting personal responsibility and accountability To make the choices to do the right thing for you and your family and where have. We heard that before Let me think on. Not all the weld. County commissioners all along being consistent as saying. Yes you know what to do. You know when to do it. So do the right thing except your personal responsibility coming under fire for that interesting to hear that you've got the head of the cdc saying essentially the exact same thing now previous guidance course from the health and agency recommended. People wear masks if they were within six feet of others outside. Regardless of their vaccination status change in guidance comes more than a year after widespread adoption of mouse and after pressure from a range of doctors and other health experts to revise the recommendations but no surprise. Here the delay in making the change in terms of these recommendations prompted even more criticism of the agency. You had phil kerpen president of the committee to unleash prosperity who was tracked. Various covid nineteen metrics during the pandemic. Outdoor safety has zero in all caps to do with status known since march twenty twenty. Cdc guidance is stupid. He didn't mince any words. And the principal effect will be to harm children. Who present less than zero or about zero outdoor transmission breaths but now become the focal point of mask shaming and enforcement in liberal land. Critics have noted that few covid nineteen infections stem from being outdoors and virtually no studies back the wearing of masks outside particularly for people who have been fully that's the needed against the virus fully vaccinated once again means that.

"With the with the astrazeneca of the astra zeneca vaccine has been besieged by so many problems. But this is the one the only one that we've heard about with these links to blood clots like this and this is the one that so much of the globe was kind of relying on and hoping that they would be able to use to roll out in lots of countries. Because it is. It doesn't have some of the issues that other vaccines have in terms of How old you have to keep it things along those lines. So there had been lots of countries that were lined up waiting for this. It also happens to be a big issue in the e you were not in the uk. They've done a very good job of vaccinations in the uk. But in the eu. They've had lots of problems and resurgences of the virus. As a result we saw france shutting down germany. Talking about shutting down and then politically getting so much pushback from that. But this is the the news that we've heard again and again with astrazeneca has been concerning and this is just one more case of that the stock however this morning up by about three point four percent. We should say that meantime in the united states the cdc says that nearly twenty five percent of adults in this country are fully vaccinated at this point more than forty two percent of adults and more than seventy six percent of seniors have received at least one dose of two dose regimen. So you are now talking about one hundred and ten million people here who have at least one dose sixty four million have been fully vaccinated but then now there's a new warning from the cdc's director. Dr rachelle wolinsky said that hospitals are seeing more and more younger adults hospitals younger adults in the thirties and forties admitted with severe severe case of covid.

Welcome back to squawk fahd from cnbc. The big banks the wall street legacy crowd are facing big competition from fintech on yesterday's pod. We told you about j. p. morgan chase ceo jamie diamonds annual letter to shareholders in sixty six pages of big think ideas about the financial industry. The economy how we live diamond head on a key shift in the way money moves around the globe he wrote banks are playing an increasingly smaller role in the financial system. How's that competition is heating up from big tech leaders in silicon valley. Facebook google apple and retailers like amazon and walmart around the nuts and bolts of running financial transactions and fintech leaders publicly traded once square pave. How and visa have stocks that have easily performed. Traditional banks like j. p. morgan goldman sachs and citi over the past. Three years square alone is up. Four hundred forty three percent j. p. m. up about forty percent in that time city just three and like just about every story we do these days because covid the pandemic of the last year brought significant changes to consumer behavior and doing more things digitally especially sending money paying a bill or a contactless purchase as much more normal. The trust level has shot up across generations for more on intech versus financials. Here's andrew ross. Sorkin joining us right now. Rebecca felton senior market strategist refund investment group. Also dan mak business editor and axios rebecca dan. It was a fascinating letter to read and to see him. So explicitly call out the fintechs but also the regulatory regime which he believes has allowed them to thrive in a way that he hasn't. What'd did you think of that rebecca. Well thank you so much for having me this morning and and certainly you can't disagree with what he said. It is an unfair playing field. If you will because these companies don't have to have bank charters. They don't have to go through the regulatory hoops that we as financial institutions. Do but to say that the fintechs are the the only competitive threat. Perhaps we ourselves as an industry are a competitive threat to ourselves because there have been studies shown that just as lightest three years ago. Fifty percent or more of of financial institutions didn't have been tax strategy in place. So it's more than just the fintech problem. It's it's looking inside ourselves and being less cumbersome dan is it that the banks are not innovative enough or is that the banks can't be innovative because regulators have told them. They can't be innovative. I think it's probably more of the former. And i'm sure jamie dimon in particular would object to that because jay mortgage certainly has been you know as far as wall street goes has been pretty good when it comes to tech innovation. The thing. I didn't quite get out of jane's letter was what specifically he wants done about it because on the one hand he complains that the fintechs aren't being regulated like the banks are on the other hand in other spots. He kind of wants the banks to be a bit less regulated. So so i didn't see specific things he wanted in there when it can defend when you think of the successes of the visas of the pay pows of the squares. Do you think that there is real risk embedded in those businesses. That's not.

He has a joy up as we move into our more hopeful phase of this battle one of the health officials at the forefront of the effort is dr rachelle will landscape director of the cdc. I spoke with her just a short time ago. Dr walinsky let me start by asking you about this anniversary and what you thought then what you think. Now about the future this has been quite a year I remember where. I was on a friday morning march six when i got a call from our lab that we had our first case at our hospital in boston. It's just been an incredibly hard gear. And i'm just looking forward to a much much brighter. Hopefully year ahead. Well let's talk about that hope And the messaging coming from the cdc other health agencies. We're being told that we've got these wonderful vaccines that are far more effective than anyone imagined at the same time. The latest guidance from the cdc is that if you were fully vaccinated we kind of want you to stay at home and in small groups are you being potentially overcautious here. You know. i think we are trying to take initial steps. We have We have to be humble with this virus every time we felt like we had it under control. We had an enormous surge. I'm really excited about these new vaccines. I am encouraged about what they could do. We just need to be humble with regard to what this virus can do. You're still recommending against travel right now even for vaccinated people. Why every time we've had a surgeon travel we've had a surge in cases and as we get more and more people vaccinated we look and as our cases continue to come down. We look forward to revisiting this guidance. Again do you think the potential for another surges blunted by the pace of vaccinations underway. Right now i think march and april are just such important critical times on the one hand. You have this hyper transmissible virus that could result in more in another surge after spring break on the other hand we are scaling up vaccination so very fast and what we really want to do is just give those vaccines a fighting chance to overcome and not let this virus surge again cautious optimism tonight from the head of the cdc in just sixty seconds new insights into the possible origin of the corona virus.

Republicans say they would've backed a smaller. Bill lester chris thank you and tonight more than sixty four million americans have received at least one dose. It's about thirty percent of adults. I want to bring in now tom costello. Tom can get the shot at this. Point really depends and where you are geographically and it really varies from state to state and even county to county. But here's a quick snapshot at the state level. Anyway in florida though sixty five and older right now can get the vaccine in new york. It's sixty and older next week. Fifty five and older in georgia. Fifty and older and texas but in alaska. Anybody sixteen and older right now can get the vaccine and every state is prioritizing teachers trying to get them back the classroom of course as you know states are right now dropping.

"On this Interview with jake tapper. So jake tapper you guys now. He's on cnn. I think sometimes. Incredibly bear in i appreciate how he is willing sometimes to criticize both sides. I think other times like when it has do with the russian collusion investigation. It wasn't entirely fair. I think he can also be most of the time. I think that he is partisan but he is probably one of the most if not the most fair hosts our reporters on cnn. And so he grilled the cdc director. Rachelle linski over. This is according to the daily wire over wide. A biden administration is struggling to get schools fully reopened across the country after top. Experts have repeatedly said that they are safe to reopen. Wolinsky has previously said quote. School should be a lasting to close in the first thing to open will then stated that in order for schools to fully reopen on that there needed to be universal masking inside schools in st six feet of social distancing within the classroom. And let me let me play a little bit of this. But what's the science because you have said there's you know i mean not just you but dr founded others have been saying for months that the schools should be open as long as there's masking and Cleansing and social distancing everything that we talked about if a school's doing that. I understand if if there's a mask violation that's a problem but if a school's doing that i mean the damage as i don't need to tell you on kids. The isolation the psychological damage the the educational loss of a year from any kids not to mention thousands of kids who are just slipping through the cracks. I mean it's it's hard to even calculate and there are a lot of people out there watching who think like. I thought the science said we should open the schools as long as we take the safety steps. We're taking the safety steps. And we're not opening the schools. Good for jake tapper. Good for jake tapper. For pushing back on. He said he was very dispirited. By this conversation. Because there's so much lack of consistency and there is a lack of following the actual science. We've talked about the scientism versus the science. That was an episode that we got a lot of good feedback on. We'll put a link to that episode in this description the difference in actual science versus scientists have been how it seems that most of our leaders have been governed by scientists in for the past year at the expense of lives and the wellbeing of children. On here's something else that's troubling the. Cdc director actually admitted in a press conference that it's not science that affects the guidance on opening tools. Or at least not just starting at us. This is according to the daily wire again. Cdc director dr rachelle e said quoted the return to in person learning at schools must be based on a thorough review of what the science tells us but also that directs is to the cdc guidance on opening schools were made as a result of engaging with many education public health partners to hear firsthand from parents and teachers directly about their experiences and concerns. She said bluntly the sessions were so informative. Indirect changes to the guidance were made as a result of them. So the reason why this is troubling is because the cdc is not supposed to be a political arm. They're not politicians that are supposed to be listening to people on basing their findings based on the opinions of public teachers unions and a handful of parents..

"Because i think this is miss presented in the press about whether engine tests or less sensitive We've done. pcr was the first test. And i don't think. Pcr the gold standard. It was the first test and the pcr tests positive that if there's active live replicating virus but it's also going to be positive if there's remnant nucleic acid We've done studies. Cdc where we really do what could be considered the gold standard that virus isolation. And when you look at virus isolation correlating with pcr it really correlates with those pcr tests that have cycle numbers under thirty or cycle numbers under twenty five. When you look at antigen contest they correlate with was cycle numbers under three hundred twenty five. And when you look at antigen tests they have a much higher correlation with positive viruses suggest. This and this is still being worked on. But i think this is how it's probably evolved will wait to get all the data that the engine test is much more accurate in defining someone who has infectious fires It doesn't define people that have the classroom then. A click acid test to find people that have infectious fires and it also finds people that have declared acid remnants which means stay around two weeks three weeks four weeks five weeks. So i would just suggest that i think antigen tests and again all antigen tests. Aren't the same so this really need to look the fda in terms of the ones we really know for example like the by next now these. I think are really very accurate task for us in defining whether people are currently likely to have infectious fires in a wouldn't be surprised that over time that you see that they'll be testing the comes out. It's really going to distinguish whether someone's currently infectious. Not whether someone was recently infected thank you. That's very clear translation of the science at the end there I i want to just thank you and thank everybody for joining this meeting today and also just to amplify something that you said dr redfield which is to acknowledge How incredibly hard people in the public health world From cdc to Ah at every level of government and really all over the world have been working.

"dr rachelle" Discussed on Here & Now
"From NPR and Wbz I'm Robin Young I'm Tanya Moseley it's here and now the US topped five million confirmed corona virus cases over the weekend and more than one hundred and sixty thousand people have died from the virus. A new report also shows that nearly one hundred thousand kids tested positive and the last two weeks of July. These numbers come as schools and universities reopened throughout the country and for more on all of this, we have with us Dr Rachelle Will Linski Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital five million confirmed cases that's astounding. But. How accurate are these numbers when we know that states like California and Florida are discovering glitches to their databases that make their numbers in accurate could the cases actually be higher? I think the numbers could be much higher for for so many reasons. First of all, let's just pause and say five million cases. Those are five million cases we know about the CDC estimates that that could be ten percent of the total. That is for many different challenges. One is people are symptomatic of course, but another is that we haven't been testing enough. So five million cases as. We've reached five million from four million and just seventeen days. I think more astounding them the five million cases the over one hundred sixty, thousand deaths I mean when you just think about the sheer volume of about number I'm we're at death rates of over a thousand a day daily and I think the the death toll here is truly astounding. Yes. Can we talk about the accuracy of the numbers that we're receiving and possibly some of the reasons why there's so many problems Florida and California are having these data collection problems why are these states failing with their data collection and can we trust data from other states? You know like so many things that have not been centralized. In this pandemic data collection is yet another one it's kept to the local authorities. I, think volume has been a huge problem. So how do we standardly collect the data? How can we look at the data across states? How do we account for data delays and then finally we report death data and so these are all sort of really tricky ways to sort of try and compile the data and make it comparable across states there hasn't been federal direction in order to be able to do that and. Some of these states have just simply overwhelmed and we know that several states including Virginia and Ohio and Louisiana are banning together to bring that uniformity that you're talking about I want to ask you about this report though on kids from the American Academy of Pediatrics. A hundred thousand kids infected in two weeks in July children still make fewer than ten percent of. Confirmed cases but the rate of infections in kids is outpacing Americans overall and I want to know how big of a threat is that for schools that are reopening right now yeah. This is a really interesting space. You know when we talk about kids and other areas of infection and pandemic flu to begin with I'm kids were really thought to be a major vector. In this pandemic kids have been less implicated as being the initial case, a household, the challenging news with one hundred, thousand kids is wow that's just a lot of kids and so even if you have a point, two percent fatality rate, which is really quite low, you're still talking about two hundred fatalities. When you talk about what it implies for opening schools, we know that in places that have been able to open schools successfully, the community spread the amount of disease is around one hundred thousand. Then when you hear about these cases in, for example, Georgia that has been on the news that county Paldon county where the school closed had case rates of around twenty, one, hundred, thousand. So that's twenty fold higher than one might have expected in places that have done this successfully. My last question for you Dr will inskeep going back to our conversation about bad data last week I spoke with Ohio Governor Mike Dewine after he got what appears to be a false positive from antigen test and these are the rapid tests. The White House has been using for people who are around president trump the White House now wants to ramp up production of these tests to twenty million a month is that enough and will we really be able to rely on the results of this kind of testing? It's a really good question that I want I think the public needs to understand the tests that we do in the hospital to diagnose the patient in an ICU coming into the emergency room needs to be very sensitive. The tests that we need for community to understand whether somebody is infectious the Antigen Chester doing quite well. Now, what happened with the governor with regard to whether that was a false positive or a true positive that really needs to be teased apart. But with different kinds of tests and different testing strategies but I do believe that the antigen tests have a really important role for public health intervention to understand whether people are infectious today. That's Dr Rachelle Linski Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital Dr. so much. Thanks so much for having me Tanya. Well to Hong Kong. Now, which today used its new national security law to make a high profile arrest of Jimmy lied a prominent pro-democracy voice and a supporter of the protests that erupted in Hong Kong last year when the law was proposed by China critic said it was designed to crack down on dissent Beijing says it's for national security, but the police action today at lies office the first time the new law has been used against the media CNN international reporter Will Ripley joins us from Hong Kong on skype will this was very public described what happened today? These were the kind of scene that we're used to seeing in developing countries a huge swarm of a police officers walking into the newsroom of apple daily newspaper owned by Jimmy Lai, immediate tycoon, a billionaire, and an outspoken critic of Beijing and it was surreal to watch officers in a newsroom where there are reporters that are doing stories about them and the government checking ID's going through evidence all because Jimmy Lai is being charged under this new. National, security law and basically He's kind of on a list of people of activists who were deemed problematic which you're probably a big reason why Beijing push hard to get this law passed in the first place well, and this arrest came just a couple of days after Chinese and Hong, Kong officials were said to media reports said that they were shrugging off new sanctions that were imposed by the US. But also today China announced unspecified sanctions against. Politicians and heads of organizations promoting democratic causes. This is including senators, Rubio and Ted Cruz. There's a little back and forth going on there did this arrest the timing of this arrests have anything to do with those sanctions we don't know if the timing is connected to the sanctions but yes I mean this arrest comes as tensions between the US and China over this National Security Law have been escalating and there's these back and forth sanctions. Accusing Hong Kong officials of undermining the city's autonomy, and now you have something that a lot of four news organisations were afraid of You know a month or two ago nobody would have imagined in Hong Kong. Immediate organizations would be rated by police likeness and it just goes to show that the freedom of the press freedom of speech is now no longer a part of life year at least for people who hold a view that Beijing. CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DOES NOT AGREE WITH You if China and it's officials in Hong Kong believed that this was going to maybe. You put a dent in the pro democracy movement went the opposite betrayal or do you think people will be cowed by this? I can only tell you based on observations this year over last year I saw the protests have all but evaporated. Now a large reason for that is the pandemic and the fact that currently you can't gather in groups larger than to if you leave your home, you're in Hong Kong. So are saying that the government is conveniently using the timing of the pandemic to accomplish. The elimination of the protest movement, and also by the way postponing Legislative Council elections that were supposed to happen you know until next year they were supposed to happen next month and that is huge because as they postponed the elections they're also disqualifying candidates with pro democracy viewpoints they've already disqualified at least a dozen and these are people that were doing well in the polls that were expected to beat and take seats from the Pro Beijing parties. So you have the pandemic combined with this National Security Law that has effectively ended protests you have essentially now people who. Are So scared at deleting.

"So Alison had a stroke as I already, mentioned and you hear her husband say we just didn't know any better so even though they realized her blood pressure, was high. They didn't push it is that something that. You've found with other women that, you interviewed yes this issue. Of high blood pressure is is just a very pervasive problem especially because in many cases, it occurs after the woman gives birth and she goes home in in those, initial days following childbirth and there's so much attention around the baby they're feeling overwhelmed sometimes and exhausted and they're not feeling well and these blood pressures go up and there are a couple of issues, that experts say one is education needed on. The communication side on the provider side of things but also. The more that women can be aware that. There are these really sort of Dana High blood pressure is that this is something that you know, if you. Can educate yourself educate a loved one or. Friend that if if you've got, a blood pressure especially one. There's about one sixty or one ten one sixty over one ten or either of those, numbers individually if you're at that level you need to really be sort of, jumping up and down on a table and and trying to get medical your medical experts attention Now listen we're gonna take a call from Indira Lucero, Indira are you there I am. Injured. Tell, us what you do for a living I understand. You're an attorney Yes, my name is Indra Lucero. And I'm a staff attorney with national advocates. For pregnant women and so There are many of your clients women who've. Experienced complications Well we work obviously with pregnant folks. And we try to protect their human and civil rights, there's a wide range of ways that we do that but. I wanted to call in to sort of underscore something Allison said about how complex this area is how hard it is to get a handle on things and just know that in addition to the failures regarding. Emergency treatments have sort of handling the worst case scenarios what we know is that there are problems in the US maternity care system across the board when it comes to getting evidence based care and best. Practices to all folks who are, pregnant and giving birth I wanted to know in particular one of the. Cases that we're working on that is in New York New York is one of the places that I know Allison was able to find a lot of data and this case. In New York had To do with north wells Staten Island university hospital where we're not Dray was actually forced to have a c. section and part of the basis. For that force was the use of the electron IX either monitor which is practically universally us despite the fact that evidence tells us and we know and have known since the late nineteen seventies that that. Particular tool does not improve outcomes, and in fact leads to a higher rate of caesarean surgery north well. As it turns out is New York state's largest healthcare provider and in many of their hospitals they're c. section rate is higher than thirty percent We also know that, when the c. section rate is over fifteen percent The risks of that procedure outweigh, the? Benefits so we know first that across the board and maternity care what what are what the best practices are are not being integrated just like Allison's learned with regard to emergency treatments and when hospitals support policies that. Can even be used to force pregnant people into some of. These procedures it just underscores. How how dysfunctional the system really is injured thank you for your call? Allison, is is, any if would Indra has brought forward familiar to you well I mean her larger issues are something that we've encountered over, and over and and one. Of the challenges I think for for women healthcare consumers is number one they may not have a choice as to what hospital they go to based on. Their insurance or who their provider is and where the provider delivers babies But even if you do have a choice one of the things that we, found is that it's very difficult to find out what the track record is in terms of maternal. And child birth complications at an individual hospital in some states, you, can get some information about c section rates and that is a very important issue and and something that women want to know about but in terms of trying to get some data about how effectively they deal with. Severe high blood pressure conditions do they give treatments within the. One hour standard and make. Sure that that women are protected against stroke do they are they doing? The, kinds of, measuring of blood loss so that women are more likely to get treatments for hemorrhage quickly that kind of information is just, not out there for women. To find and one of the things that I would really encourage those who care about this issue whether whether you're a woman who is is pregnant or Considering being pregnant or you're just simply a, friend or a loved one telling your stories publicly is one of the things that I I think has, huge impact and USA today is continuing its investigation and we would love to hear from you if you have stories to tell you, can come to maternal dot USA today dot com which is our website.

"No but it's death as random it's almost like radioactive decay it's a star cast stick mechanism rather than that kind of phenomena it's almost like the elves and lord of the rings which in the various fights they had demanded up all dying almost on the same time not because they were all but because of the conditions in which they were encountering battles on the likes thereof so how do you attribute this this statistical an anomaly to the mall naked more why is it you know defy the lee the gun permits mortality law when everything else has to tout to it kowtow to it i think a lot of fair basic biology contributes to the fact that uh they live in an environment which may lend itself to rarely harsh conditions that they have to survive otherwise the species would become extinct and they have some strange behavioural patten's and that they use social they restrict breeding two one female in the colony and a few males in the colony they live in a desert environment where food is really hard to find but they nevertheless protected from a whole range of things that would influence mortality and the while so what is the expected life of of newborn mall liquid mora uh that's a trick question because a nickel on a newborn batum more at has quite a high incidence of dying in the first couple of weeks ago i fight another they get eaten by their parents not a very nice phenomena um or they might not get sufficient milk and after they've survived three months they pretty much have the same risk of dying as a 20yearold animal they seem to have its from three months to 30 years or so that we see no change in mortality rate but they do in their first couple of weeks may be go through survivalofthefittest and then the risk that survive again into law this society from pierre i public radio international talking with dr rachelle buffon's stein never cal ago about the life expectancy of the naked mole rats you've been studying them for some time your entire careers eker.

"The naked mole rats has been bungling the minds of scientists for many years now what it lacks in can venture will cuteness it picks up four with all bunches superpowers like let me tell you about it it can survive for eighteen minutes without oxygen it's practically immune to cancer and its most notable characteristic it can live longer than any animal its size up to thirty years or more and now scientists have discovered one more thing about the naked mole rats abnormally long life it's chance of dying does not increase over time you heard me correctly joining me to explain what this all means is my guest dr rachelle buffon's stein she's a comparative biologist in senior principal to gator at calixto labs in san francisco walk of the science friday thank you i am delighted to be here this doesn't mean that the naked mole rats is immortal does it no absolutely not it means that it's chance of dying if it were a one year of age or thirty years of age is exactly the same so i'm unlike the laws of gum pertz who was a mathematician in the early 1800s who discovered that humans show a doubled risk of dying every eight years beyond the age of about thirty five to forty and so you're knows that a twenty year old has a much greater chance of surviving for the next thirty years then say of fifty year old has i'm based on his life tables that he did on british people living in various cities he came up with a law called the gone perth sandalov mortality g which is basically being replicated in horses dogs sheep mice every other species that has been looked at to date and so we started looking at studies on naked mole rats based on thirty yard year's worth of data that we've collected and my colleague graham ruby who serve buyer informatics computer scientists took these data and really analyze them very rigorously in terms of the gun parts young relationships in charge that moratti showed the same risk of dying if they were two years of age or if they with thirty years of age they was no ch change which was remarkable in other to toe lay people that make no sense right murray there you get older and older older your chance of dying is no greater when you're older than when you were younger and yet this this.
