"So universities have drifted and indeed almost captured as a branch of left wing politics. To the detriment of the credibility of science and universities. And to maintain an reputation for objectivity and accuracy and for the extent that they can't explain the methods like why are we recommending masks or vaccines or fascinating your seat belt? Or installing a smoke detector? I think there should be more of an effort on the part of various officials, whether it's corporations or governments or academia or journalism to explain the basis behind their pronouncements. I myself in writing enlightenment now was rather stunned to see graphs showing deaths from car crashes, deaths from fires, deaths from drownings. All going down by a lot over the decades occupational deaths. And the part of me that always bristled at safetyism and all these annoying rules and regulations and intra safety interlocks, what kind of had second thoughts like, hey, these really saved lives. They're not just government bureaucrats. But I don't no one is aware of these data that you literally are much safer against getting killed in a car crash or getting electrocuted or drowning or dying in a fire, then you were 30, 50, hundred years ago. Thanks to all of these safety innovations. Now we've known that they actually work. I think we'd be less resistant. And so on for a number of other regulations and in positions in our lives. Yeah, one of the fascinating things to me with enlightenment now, which is another fantastic book that everyone should go read is that some of the criticism levied against it.

"The scenarios in game theory, as you explained is called the prisoner's dilemma, what involves two players or the public goods game when it involves more than two? And the idea is that, well, I'll just simplify it in case the public goods games and the way it's actually studied in the laboratory. Imagine that everyone is given an endowment, the experimenter gives you ten bucks. You can contribute as much as you want to a common pot or keep it for yourself. If you whatever you put into the common pot, gets doubled by the experimenter and distributed evenly among all the players. Now the best thing for everyone to do would be to contribute the max. We put in ten bucks. You walk away with 20. It seems like a no brainer. Except that since it's divided evenly among everyone, if you were to hang onto your ten, and everyone else contributed their ten, and then it was doubled and then divided say 9 ways, then you do even better because you'd selfishly keep your own endowment. You'd be a free rider, plus you'd get the investment returns from everyone else. Now, everyone thinks that. One of the things I'm not going to be the sucker and give up all my money if any of the other guys could just hang onto theirs and get paid anyway. So I'm going to do the logical thing. Keep it for myself. Well, what seems to be the logical thing, turns out to be the illogical thing when you consider everyone together because no one contributes and no one gets anything associated with the worst outcome. So that's a public good scheme. And that is what happens in the lab that all things being equal as people play multiple times and catch on to the benefits of free riding. Everyone becomes a free rider and the contributions to the north zero. Now it's kind of a model for a lot of social dilemmas, like should I consume fossil fuels? I get to be cozy in the winter and cool during the summer and go in a nice air conditioned car to work instead of sweating at a bus stop. It's like public goods such as a lighthouse or security cameras or a pedestrian overpass. I would benefit if everyone else pays for it. And I shark on my taxes. But if everyone had that freedom, the overpass would never be built or the lighthouse would never be built. So it occurs over and over again. The most famous example of famous parable might be the tragedy of the commons, where every shepherd brings his sheep to graze on the town commons because he ends up better off with a fatter sheep. But if everyone does it, they continue to come faster than the grass can grow back and then everyone's sheep starves. So it's a whole and everyone has an incentive to pull out the maximum number of fish, but if all the fishers do it, then the fishery collapses, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera..

"Yeah, and it was a kind of epiphany that I had, well, well, writing the book that if you delve into moral philosophy into what actually, what do we mean when we say something as moral or immoral right or wrong? It often at least some moral philosophers would say that it ultimately is a matter of impartiality. In the sense that if you want something for yourself, then you can't very well deny to others, at least not if you want them to take you seriously and we all have to persuade one another to do what we want and not to help us not hurt us. Well, as long as you've opened up that dialog, you can't very well say what's good for me counselor it's good for you. We can blow off because I'm me and you're not. I mean, that just doesn't fly. You've got to say that what's sauce for the goose. You've got to endorse the golden rule, the categorical imperative. The choosing your position from behind a veil of ignorance. All of these conceptions of morality ultimately hinge on impartiality or objectivity, namely, you can't rig the game to favor yourself. You've got everyone everyone's got to go all lives are equal. Everyone's interest count. Well, that's very close to the heart of morality. Maybe that is the maybe that is morality. But of course it's also the heart of rationality, namely the what's true is true. What's real is real. We are flawed primates. We have bigger brains than other apes, but we're still saddled with lots of limitations because of our hardware and our evolutionary history. What we often do, we try to become more rational is to climb out of our self serving biases. Our various myopia and shortsightedness and to come to an understanding of truth.

"The big sins of academic writing is that it is so defensive. People, the main, I even in my book on writing the sense of style. Yes. I note that the first thing you got to do in writing anything is to have a model of the writing process what are your goals? How do you imagine your audience? What is the kind of fake conversational scenario that you're trying to simulate when people are scanning a printed page? And for academics, the and I got this from a wonderful book by Mark Turner and frosty no toma, I'll clear and simple as the truth. They know that the model that academics is to it is a defense against any possible accusation or insinuation that they're naive about the methods and more ace of their field. And that's how academics writers don't think that I'm naive. Don't think that I'm unaware of the possible criticisms and flaws, loopholes, and exceptions. And that's one of the things that makes academic writing so turgid. And so woolly and bloated is that no one ever says anything clear because they don't want to be convicted of naivete. Whereas the model that they explained in which I endorse, which they call classic style is, you've seen something in the world, you the writer, your reader has not yet noticed it. Goal as a writer is to position the readers that they can see it with their own eyes. And the style is conversation. Now that's very different from self defense against methodological naivete. Yeah, and in the sense of style is it's one of my favorite books on writing. And I wish that I had had it when I was young PhD student because I think one of the weird things and maybe this isn't true anywhere other than computer science is that a computer science graduate education focuses a lot on the technical aspects of computer science. So there's this canon of knowledge that I think most good programs do a pretty good job of stuffing into your head so that you've got the right foundation for doing research. And even the mechanism of doing the research, if you get paired with the right adviser, gets inculcated into you in a reasonable way. But the thing that I think I got really lucky, I had a PhD adviser who cared a lot about writing, but I think the way that many scientists learn to write is by reading a bunch of scientific literature and most scientific literature is like I won't call it bad. I think it does a job of conveying what it's supposed to convey, but stylistically, the point that you were making, like it's not excellent writing. And so if you're just pattern matching against the literature, I think it's very hard to learn how to be an excellent writer. Well, I think that's right. And I think it is pattern matching with a literature, which is how writers acquire their style. In fact, that's how I start out the sense of style by confessing that I asked a bunch of good writers that I knew beginning with Rebecca Goldstein who I married to the famous novelist and philosopher. So which style manuals did you read when you.
Dr. Steven Quay Says Wuhan Lab Working With Deadlier Virus With Potential 80% Lethality
"When it welcome to the show doctor Steven cue doctor thanks for joining us We appreciate it Oh it's great to be here Dan Thank you for having me Sure So doctor I watched your interview with rapt attention on Martha maccallum you apparently have some experience with the Wuhan lab have written about it I read you're up and The Wall Street Journal And there were a couple of things you had said in the interview one of them you had mentioned is that there was some evidence of either fragments and correct me if I'm wrong or sequences of other viruses in one of these labs and one of them was a virus called nipah which when I looked it up I was pretty frightened I mean I don't do you know fear porn like some other outlets I like honestly in science but that sounds kind of worrisome to me Why would this Wuhan lab have a deadly virus like that and why would they be manipulating it and could that affect us here Yes unfortunately everything you said is correct So the Wuhan institute of virology not coronaviruses So yes what we found was that in December 2019 samples from patients got sent from a hospital in Wuhan to the Wuhan institute of virology and put on a machine to sequence what viruses the patients had These machines can get contaminated however with background work that's going on in the laboratory We identify that the nipah virus is being manipulated through a process called synthetic biology in the laboratory right now This is where SARS CoV-2 was probably two years in 2018 2019 So this is very serious Because as you know this virus is 80 to 90% lethal as opposed to the 1% plus or minus that SARS CoV-2 is So we really need to stop this activity now and get Congress and whatever group is can get behind us to
Steven Collins: The Man Who Discovered Biblical Sodom
"Folks. Talking to dr steven collins the man who discovered biblical sodom. We're not making this up. We've got the facts. Nature just published an astonishingly long detailed scientific analysis that basically corroborates everything. The you dr collins have been saying now when you go down to seventeen hundred bc you find what you call the destruction matrix. It's soot isn't it. I mean it's basically soot when you found that you must have said. Hey this a coincidence. This is kind of nice that right where we would expect to find something. We found it. I mean you remember that day. Yeah it's three to six feet thick. Can you imagine most destruction layers at archaeological sites. Or you know maybe a few centimeters thick. Maybe a half a meter thick this is. This is a meter and a half thick. We're talking about five seat now. What's in that matrix. What's in the destruction and by the way the matrix is what after the event. All of this churned up disintegrated debris that was created by this. Massive explosion settled out between the remaining wall stubs. Remember we're talking about walls that are actually. We're gonna we have to go back because you just said something earlier and you just said it again. I don't wanna forget so the conclusion of all of these scientists and you already knew it a while ago. When i first met you they look at all of the information and they say there's only one thing that could have done this. This is what the scientists say folks. These are secular scientists. They say that an airburst event a cosmic air event. That's fancy science talk four an asteroid travelling at something like thirty five thousand miles per hour. Maybe one hundred eighty feet in diameter comes through the atmosphere burns up and explodes a few miles over this site now. The reason they can be so specific is because in one thousand nine hundred eight. The exact same thing happened in
Australian Federal Court Rules That AI Can Be a Patent Inventor
"There's been quantity excitement in. I in legal circles in recent days about a decision handed down in the australian federal court which effectively means that the label inventor can in future be given to a non human to an artificial intelligence system. The ruling is a world first and it's likely to be appealed. But how significant is it really professor. Genie patterson is with the center for i and digital ethics at melbourne law. School jamie pedersen. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. Tell us about the system at the center of this new legal development. Dabbous what is it and what can it do. Well it's device for thomas bit striking of unified since and it's a narrow network that supposedly is able to be creative to invent a new product of its own accord now. Deborah's has its own creator. He's based in the us and his name is dr steven thaler. Why has docked developing trying to have this particular machine given the same sort of inventors status that he himself enjoys well. Dr failure and a great patient lawyers and a chopping academic code ryan. I bet decided that it was important to understand that is being used quite a lot in the development of various products and particularly pharmaceuticals and. They were worried by the conundrum.

What is your intention for remembering you know. We are bombarded with an avalanche of information right each and every day in it is overwhelming right and you must intend to remember something. If you're going to remember something it's as simple as that if you forgot a name now by the way. Say yes of the you. Have you forgotten name recently. Have you forgotten where you park your car.

Seven habits highly effective people. He said most people do not listen with the intention to understand. Most people listen with the intention to reply so not or not really understanding because their intention is they're not thinking about how they're going to respond and one of his habits or seek first to understand then to be understood as people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care and that's why your intention matters people could feel your intention now.

Action First, Learn Later
"Action i learned later means that you take action from a trusted source. Then you come back later to learn more about the strategies and the logic behind the action. This is going to help. You refine the knowledge that you gained and the lessons that you learned while taking that action now. This idea came to me while i was reading a new book by steven are gunnery. Md and the book is called the energy paradox. The intro in the first chapter they were twenty three pages long and by the end of chapter one i realized he was going to give a ton of scientific reasons rationale dive into the literature behind his program that he created right now. The explanation of his energy paradox eating program that starting on page one sixty seven. I just finished as twenty three. I was going to have to read one hundred and forty four more pages before i get to the actual program right. I did not want to wait that long. Because i mean if you're anything like me oftentimes Fiction books i love. I get i dive into the story. Loved the characters. I love the plot. I just read read read. I can read one hundred pages in a day of great fiction book easily but nonfiction sometimes can be a slog. And if it's full of like medical jargon and scientific discoveries and and whatever else he talks about in those first pages man it might take me. I don't know one hundred forty four more days ten pages day fourteen more days before i actually get to the program. Screw that right. So i skipped a page one sixty seven and i started the program on day one when i picked up the book. And let me tell you. I could not be happier with the process right taking action. I it got me eating healthier right away. The whole ideas like why wait right. I trusted that. The author dr steven our country. Md that the program that he wrote would not hurt me and if he put anything in the program that seemed dangerous. I could totally just skip it right so nothing ended up being dangerous but just ahead of time if you're taking action and something seems funky and uninteresting. Maybe you're just like it won't help then. Just don't do it. I can you could easily choose to not do something. But for me. And this book taking action before learning about the benefits was total no-brainer.
Should Potty Training Be Child-Led? With Bedwetting Expert Dr. Steven Hodges
"You subscribe to the idea that children should lead their potty training. That children should be the ones to let parents know that they are ready. And sort of following the child method rather than the parent doing three day potty training or one of these potty training methods yeah for sure. I'm definitely a fan of child. Lead apparent lead. But with a one caveat so i found that you know three and younger tends to be a little bit too young in terms of maturity from us. Kids generally four teams to be a little too old because they're in preschool and they should know by then honestly if you can't probably four then maybe they have an issue that makes it impossible and you could get evaluated but somewhere between three and a half and four. Most kids have the physical ability in the mental ability. To kind of get it into go. And so i think introducing it gently at that. Point is fine. I i don't think that you have to force the issue. Most of them the one case kind of positive peer pressure when other kids doing it and they wanna do it as well. The one for training late And i've noticed a lot. Is that peeing in. Party is very easy for those kids. They control it well. But pooping in the potty. The more you get used to doing it in a pull up the kinda hard on toilet and so. That's a little bit of takes a little bit of help guidance. Through that because some kids as communist constipation as communist toting issues aren't kids You know delayed. Pooping on the potty. Where they just asked for pull up to go poop. Instead of doing the troll is very communist world. It's just you know. Old habits are hard to break sometimes. And you gotta work a little bit at it. The kids don't usually willfully poop on the toilet as easily as they do the pig and do you think that's just a force of habit or do you have the sense that it's also a child feeling maybe rushed or push emotionally and isn't quite ready to take that step and they feel that the parent trying to urge them ahead. Did you ever consider those aspects. yes i think. Pooping has just a hard thing for people to do is is interesting. Every kid i've been around you know has had an episode. were kinda feel good to poop. And they don't really don't know what to make of it you know. It's an uncomfortable on. They learn easily that you can Hold it in that. Kinda urge goes away so that it's so common and then since their minds involves much worse. It like a stressful situation. I think kind of hiding behavior having up do it in just seems safer that sitting on a toilet Little bit
Dr. Steven Gundry - Tired? Low Mood? Good Bacteria to the rescue!
"What to do when you get up and go has got up and gone. Which honestly is how a lot of us have been feeling these days so in the upcoming conversation were thrilled to be talking to dr country. And we're gonna learn about what you can do from a nutritional perspective to increase your energy and your mood and it does not what you think. Welcome dr country. Thanks areola happy to be here. Cut your band actually sitting by beds so there you go. It's a joy a pleasure to have you because for a lot of us are get up and go truly has got up and gone these days. It sure has who would have guessed. I know so. What's one of the first things that you recommend to somebody who is feeling like they could use a little bit more zip in their lives. There's many factors that go into. Why most of us are tired and fatigue and just don't have the energy that we thought we ought to have many of us think we are modern lifestyle or code. This is normal to feel like this but in fact my research in that of many others shown that this tiredness is not normal. When it's actually a sign that something is really wrong deep inside. There's two things that i think are really important for people to understand. One is that apocryphal. He's the father of medicine. Twenty five hundred years ago. Said all disease begins in the gut and how that guy could be so smart that long ago without are sophisticated tests. He knew that for instance are mood game in our gut. Our illnesses came from our gut. And we now know that he was absolutely right that most of our issues including being tired and including having depression anxiety actually stems from gut despite basis. Which is a fancy way of saying that the microbiome within our god is all screwed up

Pinning Down Prostate Cancer
"Well i of course. Our hosts quadruple board. Certified doctor of internal medicine pulmonary disease critical care and neuro critical care and still fighting on the frontlines over the war on. Covid my very good friend. Dr steven tae back. How you doing steve. I'm well thank you as you've heard joining us from johns hopkins medicine. Doctor kenneth pinta. He's the director of research for the james buchanan. Brady urological institute. He's the co director prostate cancer research program for the sidney kimmel cancer center. He's a professor of urology. He's a professor of oncology. he's a professor of pharmacology and molecular sciences. Welcome dr to. What do you do with all your spare time can. This is not meant to be a softball question. But it's going to sound that way. I'm trying to understand from your inside. Perspective. what is it about the environment you work in a johns hopkins that produces these kind of outcomes. These ratings and the international recognition part of it is tradition. Johns hopkins was founded as the first research university in the united states and we've always placed the tripartite mention of patient care education to students and research on equal footing. So that we're always seamlessly combining those and the other piece of tradition is johns hopkins hospital in the medical school itself. We defined american medicine at johns hopkins with william oastler. Starting out saying we're gonna do medicine differently. Use the term. Medical residents started at johns hopkins. Because ostler made. The doctors live in the hospital to be trained in. So that's where the term came from. You know we have this dome at the hospital. With with the wings of the building and medicine rounds what referred to the fact that they would go round and round the dome to the different wards. And you know we carry that sort of tradition with pride and people love to work there and we've always attracted really smart people who love madison in love taking care of people and really love combining that with the research that powers the next generation of medicines. Forward dr parton. Your department chair talked about. While other hospitals use reports for urological surgery hopkins actually makes their own. Robots isn't making davinci robot. No we use a commercial robots like everyone else but what we are doing is creating the next generation of robots to work with mri machines. We have danced in. Our department is making a special robot that does that. The hopkins whiting school of engineering is developing the next generation of robots to integrate imaging with robotic surgery. A lot of that is not just hardware. it's software we're living in a pretty high tech era. We've come a long way in medicine but still so many men die of prostate cancer. What are we messing up here in. We have to do to fix this. So you know in this time of covid and so many people dying of kobe. You know it's an infectious disease. We gotta do better and we tend to forget about these other illnesses that are plaguing the planet you know if you look around the world. Ten million people a year are dying of cancer in the us. Six hundred thousand people are dying of cancer. Thirty thousand men die of prostate cancer. Every year and cancer of all kinds including prostate cancer is curable if you find it in time because we can do surgery or radiation in jewelry you but unfortunately in about fifty thousand men per year we find the cancer too late. We find the cancer. After it is escape the prostate and metastatic cancer virtually of all kinds is incurable and prostate cancer. Unfortunately metastasized spreads to the bones as first sight and it causes a lot of problems for guys in the bones including pain and eventually kills them and we can talk about how that happens but essentially we fail because we don't cure people because we don't find the cancer in time. Let me ask you a question about that. Actually because i've been quoted by colleagues that if you're fifty years old you have a fifty percent chance that you actually have prostate cancer and at sixty sixty percent chance that you've probably already have prostate cancer and so on and so forth and it would beg the question. Would it not make sense to prophylactically. Remove the prostate. And then obviously the the major impediment to that is the major side effects. What does the thought process about that in. Where are we in terms technologically of mitigating the terrible side effects of impotence and incontinence. So i think there's two aspects to that question steve that we just need to touch on because the other thing you hear. All the time is that oh prostate cancer. You don't have to worry about it. You're going to die with it not from it. You know we do see that. Eighty percent man age eighty if you look in their prostates. If they've gotten killed by a car accident you'll see prostate cancer. So essentially prostate cancer exists in two forms one form. Is this indolent slow growing low grade cancer. That probably shouldn't even be called the cancer. But it still is in we find it by screening and and those are the guys that can be treated with active surveillance. We don't need to treat their cancers where a lot smarter about that now than we were even a few years ago. The other kind of cancer is the aggressive prostate cancer. That is not the kind you find on all types whereas the kind that's growing quickly that we have to get out before it spreads so prostate cancer is definitely has a hereditary component. If you have a father or an uncle who had prostate cancer your your risk of developing prostate cancer is double if you have to family members. It's quadruples you had three family members. You're gonna get it so it is familial. There are some genetic drivers. Like vr rca to that lead to a higher incidence of prostate cancer. And we definitely say if you've have family history us should start screening sooner.
Moderna Developing Vaccine Booster Shot for Virus Strain
"The seven day average of new coronavirus cases is down by 40% over the last three weeks, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Comes to vaccinating the population. Dr. Steven Hodge, the president of drugmaker, Moderna was asked on Good morning America when herd immunity could be reached in this country. If you assume 50 to 70% of the population, then we're working hard ourselves and the other manufacturers to make sure it's a possibility, really in the late spring early summer, he also said the company is going to develop booster vaccines in case new variants of the virus, like the one from South Africa make existing vaccines less effective.

Welcome to anxiety slayer jill i shan. Thank you so much for having me so happy to be here. It's a pleasure. And congratulations on the success of your latest book. Be mighty what a fabulous book. And i know that you reached out to us quite some time ago to to get on and i'm and i'm glad you're here. It took us a little while but were here in. Your book is still out there and doing so well. So many great reviews. Yes and actually. It's great timing because the book just past her first birthday. Yeah be a celebration of about a year ago. I had the pleasure of speaking with dr steven hayes and he told me that that time that he pioneered act to help people with mental health issues feel fully think freely and live lives that reflect the qualities they choose and i'd like to begin our conversation with you sharing with us. How act can support women who often struggle with anxiety. Health things -iety in anxiety attacks. Yeah well act is a little different from some of the traditional ways. We go about attacking anxiety in that. The main goal of act is about developing psychological flexibility. And so this is really tuning in to the life you want and the person you want to be and showing up in doing what matters no matter what so. We often get caught in a trap where we do this waiting until thing you know like oh you know maybe i have a huge dream so i'll give you a personal example. I had a really big dream of doing a fedex. Talk one day and an opportunity arose to be able to do that. And i was terrified. I mean can feel my anxiety rising right now just talking about what we often do is say well i just i just need a little more expertise and i just need a little more practice and once i get my anxiety under control and i feel more confident and less insecure. Then i'll go ahead and do this. And what act is all about is becoming an observer of all those thoughts and feelings that we often get really hooked by and sort of we allow those thoughts and feelings to dictate our choices rather than letting what's important to us lead the way. The thing about doing what matters is it's going to come with anxiety because if it didn't matter you wouldn't care. Oh so well said. I used to do a lot of speaking an moved away from it moved into other areas of interest. But oh my goodness the number i would do on myself before speaking and i was very good very well prepared new speaking about once you got me on stage there is no turning me off. You couldn't shut me up right. But what i put myself through before it was something else and over time over practice and everything that lightened up but there was still that My my speaking coach would say try and take that anxiety and turn it into excitement and some days. I could do that and other days. It was just a matter of forcing myself really to just do it right. And and i think you know the all gets a little bit confusing for human beings because sometimes when we feel panicky when we feel fear it's because we're endanger our body is saying you need to fight or flee if you're going to be safe but sometimes were having those feelings and it's you know it's a false alarm. It's a perception of danger when it's not really dangerous or what it is it's a quote unquote social danger that you know when you're public speaking you care that people think your competence and interesting that you have something of value to deliver and you think evolutionary early early humans weedon have fangs or clause or we didn't run fast. We had each other where social beings early humans who hunted and gathered and travelled together had a survival advantage so to constantly be checking your status in the group to make sure you know. Am i doing my part. Am i valued or am. I gonna get kicked out because if i get kicked out i'm dead and so we've really evolved to be creatures who compare ourselves to others and of course. Social media has made that far greater than it was ever intended to be. But it's this very normal natural thing we do to care what others think so that we don't risk getting booted from our tribe and so sometimes when fear and anxiety and panic and all that arise. It's not a sign that we need to go run and hide run to safety run to the comforts on. It's a sign that we really care about this thing that we're doing and when you're laying in bed at night and you can't sleep and the wheels are spinning in its to mayhem. You're not worrying about whether netflix's is going to go out of business. That's not what keeps you up at night. What are wheelspin over. As our family our loved ones our jobs the things that really matter the most to us and so part of act is really recognizing that our pain. Barring society is not the enemy.

Understanding the Virus with Dr. Howard Fullman
"So i are host the quadruple board. Certified doctor of internal medicine. Pulmonary disease critical care in neuro critical. Care my very good friend. Dr steven day back. How are you steve doing. Okay deceive. oh we have one of our favorite experts returning to us today Howard j fomin. He is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology and howard served a multi decade tenure at kaiser permanent day as partner ford member president of the executive committee chief of staff and chair of the quality committee. He has supervised over forty three hundred staff and over five hundred doctors. Howard is now seen your operating advisor at atlantic street capital for their medically focused investments. Dr howard foreman nice to have you back thanks to be here high stated it good to see hey steve. What's it like in the icu. With the kobe patients has it gone. It's been very rough at my hospital. The surges hit us really hard. We actually we had a mini surge. Back in may when everybody else seemed to be really struggling at this time it has hit us really hard we have about one hundred and fifty plus cove patients in our hospital and i bought twenty percent of those are in the intensive care unit and those that intensive care unit. They are all on high flow oxygen or intimated. So they're all very very sick. And howard what. Are you hear about kaiser. How are they holding up in all this. I just very proud of everybody. Credible courage by the patients and their families what they're going through doctors nurses respiratory therapist all staff level of dedication i think of the healthcare professionals are just miraculous people. Tired in was there the other day doing data the procedures. And just in what. I do which is way less difficult than being in the icu. For twelve hour shifts just wearing in the ninety five masks in a shield and all the p p being more cautious than ever and trying to make sure that the patients can get in and out so that they're not in the medical center. One minute more than is necessary. Cetera et cetera. Just makes the practice of medicine which is already something that's very challenging even more challenging but my heart goes out to the patients and that that's just a culprit patients Anyone who needs services. The hospital is having more difficult time than usual inside easy being a patient thunder normal circumstances that along under these circumstances. i'm sure they're all kinds of treatments. That have changed since our last conversation. I mean the remdesivir steroids in a number of other treatments that you guys have raised a bad situation. What's working the best these days. Dr steve in actually the one medication that really has shown to decrease mortality everything that we have is decadent on an age old medication. A steroid that's used to decrease swelling decrease inflammation in the body thus far as the only medication that we're using that actually has been proven to diminish with a twenty eight day mortality. We do give them de severe because there has been shown that there's been some benefit in terms of shortening the course of the disease and so it's still part of our protocol and so everybody who's coming in is getting a coverage for we call community acquired pneumonia in case they have bacteria on top of covid. So they're getting the usual medications for that which is usually as for miocene in something called stuff triax zone but the standard therapy provided you have good kidney function that you're not to overwhelmingly sick is the decca drawn remdesivir but it is the decca drawn. That by far has been shown to be very effective. I do believe for those people who are not terribly ill that are just starting to show signs and symptoms of covid that have various co morbidity is considerably overweight have diabetes a monoclonal antibody that has given an infusion. I believe has also been a game changer. Although i've not seen formal data in that way but those are the big three medications that we give. I mean you've got to look at what's going on here in the us and it's gotta frustrate both of you. Knowing how many people are breaking the advice may be needle one column rules because somehow those of us in the us don't like those things called rules. Frankly i've seen a bunch of parties. Go on in my town. There have been a bunch of weekend weddings and dancing. And what have you and it's almost like. What are you supposed to do as a healthcare organization to get the message across. I can't imagine. What would happen. To dr steve here if there was a surge on top of this surge. That's an important point in all of us in healthcare professions of. I wanna start again by saying lots. Lots of people doing their level. Best imply vincent. I feel really badly for people who don't have a luxury to be at home. That essential workers people who were living in very congested areas. Tranquil did very best. They can difficult circumstances. So that's important to make sure we now. The hard work difficult circumstances lots of people living under now everybody's violating these guidelines but there are people who are either inadvertently or something some cases intentionally violence

"Should do to get help. But i think there's a couple of different ways to go about it. I think the first thing is if someone knows that. I'm drinking too much. Is there someone. Say that they trust with no agenda that they can ask for help and that may be a family member. That's that they trust that Maybe has access to some resources. There may be a therapist. And maybe a priest or pastor It could be a friend that they know has stopped drinking or it could be just You know go into a medical professional. But i think it's it's important that the first stab is is one admitting it and then to taking an action whether that's picking up a phone and calling someone or meeting somebody for coffee and and just i don't want to say coming clean but just kind of opening up to someone about. They're struggling with in in most of us. And you you mentioned it earlier bernadette you most of us know someone that's been struggling with this and many times. We know people that have have struggled with it and been able to turn their lives around and knows people are are such valuable assets because there's no shame associated with it. You know when someone a newcomer comes to me. And says hey. I think i may have a drinking problem. I feel extremely comfortable helping that person by telling them own struggles. Yeah because that's part of the support right because it's bout the understanding. You know what they feel. You know where they've been and you know where they need to go. And so you know all the work that you do I can't thank you enough for doing your part to help the world and people out there that are struggling with addiction and recovery. So we've got about a minute. What is your advice for recovering addicts as we had into twenty twenty one. I think that You know it's stay the course and we learn in recovery. It's so cliche everybody's heard it one day at a time and i think this year is shown us exactly that that we never know what the news is going to be. X morning is going to be some kind of thing with the pandemic that we've just learned or You know something about the vaccine or what we're allowed to do. We're not allowed to do in for someone in recovery. I'm very comfortable with that. Because i don't plan six months in advance with what i'm gonna be where i'm gonna be living and what i'm going to be doing. I'm i'm worried about today. And doing the best i can with what i have today and so my first piece of advice is don't bite off more than you can chew You know i heard. I heard a quote From actually anthony hopkins who sees celebrated forty some odd years sobriety and he said that that today Is the day that you were worried about yesterday. And and it's just beautiful because it is really like. Hey we're living in the moment right now. This is what we have. And i think that as long as as you take it in small chunks and surround yourself with people that can help you keep yourself out of dangerous situations that you can get through today. I love that message. I do ryan. I hope you'll back. It's been really great to have you with us today. Here on one life radio and happy healthy new year to you and everyone at the nashville recovery center. Thank you so much. Thank you all right all right everyone. We'll be right back.

"Welcome back who radio and happy new year's eve We have ryan king with us. He is the president of spiro group. And the president and ceo of the nashville recovery center tennessee recovery clinic and and rhythm recovery residences. He's been working in healthcare for almost twenty years and has been published in numerous articles and appeared on various media outlets and lives his life authentically and inspires others to have the courage to live their lives to their truest potential. Their website is nashville recovery. Center dot com. Okay ryan today. We're continuing our conversation about suggestions for staying sober for those in recovery and how we all we just talked about how how the holidays so very difficult for many people especially if they're in recovery so much out there to be stressed about and then covid nineteen the even more complex. But what advice do you have for staying sober during the holidays. Well i think the first thing is a priority target. I'd prioritize sobriety I have to wake up and remind myself that today is not today. I'm going to pick up or use. Something I think it's also important to stay connected so You know we talked earlier about the availability of meetings in in connecting with other people that are trying to stay sober and and it's as simple as a quick google search to put in recovery meeting online or aa meetings online. And you'd be You'd find a a number of them immediately so staying connected is a big deal I think making self care a priority in all things eating well getting enough sleep getting some exercise every day. You know just taking care of yourself. And then Lastly would be just be mindful of where you go in who you surround yourself with Be smart about it. Yeah no i agree. And that's that's a big piece of the puzzle is in and sometimes you. You have to find new friends right. Yeah absolutely absolutely and You know. I'm thinking i'm having a lot of thoughts having dealt with this Myself in my own family this year and it's been very difficult through the cova crisis as well so you know. What can you tell us about the medications being used to curb alcohol dependence. Do they work i effective. Oh yeah they are. They're definitely effective. I think the problem is if they get a bad name because a lot of times people try to depend on the medication and don't change their behavior. And i think that if you combine change behavior with the medication it's a great combination The two main Drugs that that you can use to curb. Alcohol dependence would be now trucks own which is a a pill you take every day and Basically what what that does is it. It's a behavioral modification drugs. So when you take that pill You're not gonna get the buzz. Essentially you would get from drinking But you'll still have the negative side effects so you'd still feel groggy or hungover or still You know have dry mouth and things that you'd feel after you drank that you would never get the buzz so it tries. It works by trying to give you negative reinforcement for drinking There it's been around for a long time since mid eighties mid ninety something like that but originally it was used for opioid dependence and they've Expanded the indication to cover alcohol. And there's another version of it. That's called vivid. Trawl which is An injection you get once a month and it's it's a little more expensive but you only have to get at once a month and in some insurance who actually cover it either any side effects that are You should be concerned about. Are there any serious wants. Nothing serious Other than You know can a lot of people trying to drink through it and again. That's where the behavior comes in. If you're for example your An alcoholic drinks a couple of bottles of vodka. Day If you continue to do that it's only going to be negative side effects and then so again it's not gonna keep you from drinking. It's gonna keep you from having the positive affects so it's hard to take a pill and expect someone to change their behavior. That's why it's really important to do some other treatment whether it's going to rehab doing outpatient treatment or going to therapy it's it's really important to include those along with the medication. Yeah you know. And it's so difficult. Alcohol is everywhere you can't you can't go into target you can't you can't go anywhere. Basically and shop. I mean you know grocery stores up right. I mean it's everywhere. It's at every party a baby shower. You know Wedding i mean it's it's a big part of our world and and but it's got to be so incredibly difficult it is and again it's a. It's a personal decision but it's not recovery is not done alone you have to have support. Yeah and how important is the support of the family. You know we talked about it earlier. You know about like you know not drinking in front of that person. Making that part of the family's new norm so that when you're sitting down to dinner with that person that there's no alcohol to not because of the as much as to show that you love and support that person and understand the difficult time that they're going through. Yeah i think that there's there's definitely a fine line there. I don't think there's a black and white answer You know because you know somebody may Not even come from a healthy family and sometimes it's important to to separate yourselves from from that family and it's a hard thing to talk about But when someone is is essentially slowly killing themselves by drinking so much that you need to have that kind of gift of aspiration and be willing to do whatever you need to do to stay sober. And i think family support can be wonderful but it's more important that you have support in general Rather than leaning on certain individuals because if those individuals what you down you're likely to relapse. Yeah and when someone relapses how difficult is it to get back on track. Well it's It's kinda all over the board Some people will have a you know a period of sobriety say ninety days without drinking and they they may pick up a drink and then instantly regretted and go right back into recovery. Other people may pick up a drink and it and it goes on and on and on for years before they find it again. And everybody's different you know We always describe it as You know an elevator going down all you have to stop and get off the elevator when you're ready and some people that is Make a full of themselves that new year's eve and decided to stop drinking some people need four d. You is before they stopped. Some people needed a diagnosis of you know some kind of liver disease before they stop. I mean everybody's pain tolerance so different and they're and their gift desperation come different times. We'll let me ask you this. This is probably one of the most important questions when someone does realize that they have an addiction. What should they do. What's the first step. they.

"dr steven i" Discussed on Alexa in Canada
"You can't rule that out, but here's the percentage, and it was quite low or that sort of thing, and it's just. It was more of a conversational type experience I think. That yeah. I think that's wonderful. Now the other thing I wanted to ask you about, and it's very timely. Topic I think is just at least from from the time. We're recording this two days ago. Was Alexa live and they announced a number of new features, really exciting features. I'd love to hear your take on. That event some of the more interesting to you, and how those may be can be incorporated or some of your ideas, how those could be incorporated into your skills such as big sky. Wow, that was I thought it was an amazing an event in an amazing set of features that they released so off the top of my head. For developers is also for users. I think quick links is quick links feature they introduced, or you can finally invoke on Alexa skills through through the web or through an APP or on you know through a tweet I mean I think that's going to be huge just to expose Alexa skills. Obviously, it helps for marketing, but that's just. That's break. They introduced some new. The NFL toolkit which is the name three invocation toolkit. which again for both developers and users I think could depending how it actually is implemented could be great is then you can? Just you don't have to remember in principle, skill, names or invocation names anymore? You can just say you know Alexa, I'm sleepy or something in place sleep sounds are what's the weather and it will give you. Maybe we'll give you big Sky I. Don't know we'll see. So I think that's really cool and then. Alexa conversations. I was involved in the Beta program for Alexa conversations. And it's actually integrated into big sky. As of two days ago, there was sort of a release of big guy with conversations when they announce conversations. And that. I think the effect of that is going to be a little bit. Further into the future, then like quick links or NFL. as 'cause, it's GonNa take a while for developers to wrap their heads around it and start integrating it into their own skills, but I think that's a a going to be a game. Changer changes the way people write skills than it. I think it will change the sort of the robustness naturalness of choice interaction. Can you explain that a little bit because I think? In case there's some listeners that aren't really familiar with what that is Alexa. Conversations like what's the difference between? What we have currently, what is that feature that that's? Yeah, so I mean very sort of a high level. In a regular skill, three conversation skill, the developer has to. Sort of write out explicitly all of the steps right of an interaction with Alexa you've got the developers gist of think about what those steps are, and then she has to. figure out what the per mutations are, and it gets complicated very quickly, and so as a result, what the kinds of interactions you cannot with the skill are GonNa be limited. The idea behind Alexa conversations is that you provide some sample dialogues like literally just like right the dialogue like you're writing a screenplay. And then you just write a bunch of like nears all the ways it can go. and..

"I'm Steven, Arcana Bitch and I think most people know me as the developer of the big sky weather skill. But I have lots of other skills that nobody cares about, but that's fine I know resentment just. Out there how heels avid, altogether, it'd be idea. I have like six seven eight. I took some off like some of the really early ones because they just couldn't handle them, they were so. Atrocious okay, took them away from the market, but there's still a bunch of them out there all right we'll get. We'll get to that. What's your story so? I'm really I'm a philosophy professor. At Reed College in Portland Oregon and I do Alexa skill development on the side. So I'm of the, Alexa. Champions Program. I am are the bixby premier developers program, so you can get big sky on Bixby as well. That's the that's. That's what I do. So you know what questions coming next. How does a philosophy professor? Get into Amazon Alexa envoys technology. Right, then is the president well. I think it was A. Combination of a sabbatical where I really was trying to put off doing the research project I was supposed to do. <hes> together with a injury to my Achilles tendon that had me like boot and sitting in a chair for a long time. So those two things together made me like cast around or. Something else to do what I should be doing. and. I got an Alexa device early on, and I thought it was super cool. And I just started wanting to around with it and have a do things that it wasn't capable of doing at the time like play music through my stereo or even turn on and off the lights. It wasn't I don't think it was capable of doing that at the time so with IQ lights, so that's got into it. So what was your first device? Then because it's a this is a while ago, then was it like the big? The big tall cylinder. All, black cylinder. Gotcha Gotcha so. As, a philosophy, professor and skill developer. Those are somewhat somewhat different skill sets. Have you coded before? How did you get into that? Or what's the story there? Yeah, no I didn't I hadn't coded before. There are a little bit more similar than people think. They are just because the kind of law, Sophy I. DO is a little bit more technical. So you know it involves some formal logic, and so you know working in a formal logic and working in programming languages. You know they're not worlds apart. So that was helpful. and. No, I just got started because I've told the story before there was I wanted integration to my music server software I want to be able to tell Alexa play. A certain album was earned song that I had. I don't exactly remember. How would I got hooked up with? A an actual developer was doing some early Alexa stuff. And he's and he wrote some like really basic code to do that. Which I actually paid him for, but then I looked, and I looked at that code and thought well. That's cool, but I'm not paying you. You know that again to fix the. I'm sure I can figure out how to modify this, and that's just how it started like once I win started down that rabbit hole. I just couldn't stop

"Look I know we've all had about enough of this. Kobe, nineteen thing we're tired of the politics of it. We're tired of the endless conflicting reports what we should do what we shouldn't do what we should wear and not wear you know surfaces transferred disease, or maybe they don't. We're ready to open schools. We can open restaurants, baseball, or maybe we're not. Oh and please don't blame my co host for this opening. I didn't tell them about it and so forgive him, and you can blame me. This is a particular pleasure today. I, get to chat it up with my very best friend. Dr Steven Taback. who also just happens to be? The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care whatever that means. He's also on the frontlines fighting the COVID battle for us every day at his hospitals, which were eternally grateful for and by the way he saved my dad's life twice. Dr Steven Tailback. You Doing Stephen? Doing great good to hear you in and see you at least virtually anyway. It's weird, isn't it? We would normally see each other all the time right at least twice a week during the week, and then on the weekends dinner, and by the way I know you've been teetotalling for like three months. You'RE GONNA have to explain that to the group why I am drinking the mcallen twenty-five that you gave me for my birthday, so thank you very much happy birthday. I'm glad to see that. You still have some left in the bottle as of. mid-may. So, why is it? YOU'RE NOT DRINKING STEVE? From my perspective thing on the front lines you Wanna do everything you can to. Protect yourself immunologically, and so my goal was to optimize my immune system, considering the fact that there is no scene, but in order to optimize one's immune system. You want to eat healthier. You WanNa sleep better. And when I looked at the things that I was doing in my life I was not exercising as much as I would have liked to. My sleep was always fragmented. Fragmented and I do know. The alcohol suppresses the immune system not that I. You know I have more than probably one drink a week. When I see you I. Never drink otherwise, but nevertheless I felt that in order to really give myself the best possible defense against this miserable virus I should do. Everything could now to optimize my immune system until you you eating differently to. Eating Vegan I've been avoiding caffeine which has helped my my sleep tremendously of avoided alcohol I've started back on a regular exercise, so exercise has something to do with your immune system absolutely exercises very important for your immune system why it's a very good question I'm not sure I have an answer is simple answer as to why, but exercised absolutely increase the circulation. It stimulates your your. Your metabolic rate kind of wakes up your cells, and it optimizes cellular performance and metabolic performance, and at the end of the day. That's what your immune system is is the doing constant surveillance of cancer cells is doing constant surveillance for viruses and bacteria, and you wanted at optimal performance, but you're telling me that a glass of macallan twenty five is not so good for my. My immune system. It's certainly not good for your immune system. Now the question is, does it actually have any deleterious effects truly having a glass? You know a week or so probably not, but what would it do to your system? That would affect your immune system. What we do know that you do have we call Milo suppression and Rith Rope Suppression. That is you stop manufacturing red. Red Blood Cells. People who use alcohol to excess clearly are have increased susceptibility to bacterial infections viral infections. They manufacture less red blood cells so obviously they're gonNA. have difficulty adequately getting oxygen to vital organs. Organs are going to suffer in terms of their peak performance speaking of having a little fun with it. I'M GONNA put your feet to the fire a little bit right away. Before months ago, Steve we had the honor of being joined by Dr Suzanne Donovan, who broached the concept of this corona virus and you guys? We're talking about it. And I almost could hear battle hymn of the Republican, the background and a Glory Glory Hallelujah and you guys were talking about how America was so strong and so well designed as far as our health care system. We really knew what we were doing. Chances are this corona. Thing wasn't going to be a big deal for us as it would be potentially some other parts of the world. That was then. This is now a steve. The US has four percent of the world's population and we're currently running at twenty five percent of the world, global cases and deaths. Why is that first and foremost? Let's say that the superpower of the world absolutely blew it as far as efficiency in terms of testing in terms of reporting in terms of personal protective equipment. We really were not ready, even though we could have been ready, we missed multiple steps in the preparatory process.

"It's You know I mean I agree with a lot of things. He you said in in their You know but I did read all twenty five pages and also up. PM There you know that they just went through at things supplies but other You know yes. He showed evidence that was ticker horse. Shows Micro factors suit and evidence are damaged in is Business a hind candidates. And obviously there was just did was obviously demonstrable these in his in the normal or the one that which still did not break down and you can suffer catastrophic collapse and the White Hart But I disagree with one thing in my experience you know last. You know thirty five plus years and working with a couple of Pioneers Landis perspex you know I i. I'm not a big believer either. I I think there are things that occur both limbs. Yes without a doubt that's demonstrable launched but in my opinion the reason why the one broke one factor handle. It didn't cause more advanced and I think you know I I think that our ability and you like realize and then look sexy the fact that horse at a video in two days before he ran a mile quarter race because because basically visibly deficit why time should have been more than just a flag. And you know what I mean it. Just it's really I mean you know. He keeps talking to the fact that they were ninety. Nine point six percent accurate in their descriptions horses and the horses that they allowed to raise six. Say Ah Boggling. And Groom Thomas You know but one the point four percent that you were inaccurate on the one. Don't like no different than the one that they that Jerry Hongbo happened one back. He worked at All the training track at seven new causing to get moved move off with art and that was only one maybe thousands of horses. This guy started his career that that is you know we are absolutely i. Enjoy your tower so you could cut yourself on the back you know that you did. You know ninety nine point six percents Tanya right but the back of the matter remains I mean. Is that as professionals that are licensed than we are the overseers one that we're going to have to trace for the one we're going to be you know all calls walk for the one that she basically you know are going to have your integrity question and your ability to observe and make the right calls the one that didn't you get by your your measures your standard at measure and you know unfortunately were point where thinks about I'm not saying I know that you know there's zero tolerance you know an exact. That topic has realized that you know this used to be export kings and you know the the rich basic tolan. They kind of like sitting with didn't didn't go well. I think the thing that should be everybody's the back of everybody's mind is the fact that hey dr racing in the state of Florida and the public out and therefore proposition insist his you know on a ballot and the public as it say in. The governor's GonNa sign and it has plenty of backing you know. It doesn't matter how much money the never meet billionaires. Play your games you know at the state. Essentially by the plurality of voter Boats out. It's wrong and you don't believe it's called the guys they. He used to bring home in Florida. So therefore you know you know a panel the backs of great things instituting this or would do but you gotta remember. This was outlined the situation was we had a large staff of people that were dedicated to observing observing examining rechecking diagnostically working up and hitting records and working on a large group of horses for a period of two days. This is not the norm that this is what happens. You know ninety nine percent or ninety nine point nine percent time this is one that okay now. Now the problem is you had all these people and you had you know all the expert whenever and so once still slip on what happens when there's all these people aren't there earners only state a very very limited staff of those practitioner android that this state people in Racetrack people that deserve and you don't have fifty fifty outsiders there at the same time but you know then what is your what is the you know your normal standard operating procedures how you can overcome from this. How does this not going to be slipped list though different than you know I mean it you can give every an algae under the sun but the fact actors no matter how you cut it that one got missed okay so the analysis of how it got missed is excuses. Essentially awesome that bilateral latest problems and that you couldn't be the check it off. It was such a case. Why was video a couple of days before because I didn't hear that really get addressed? Accept the fact that the knowledge that exists in that he looked like he was off my parents but then the tweet down on the rug welts. Let's just talk about the fact but look what he could see when they jogging. Works in because You know he didn't show you the demonstrating or exaggerates lamest. When that occurred? Well I.

"For standard. Look like you got a chance to have some sort of a career you know I mean obviously there was the nominal race there. I remember I talked about a bad one time. Since she was kind of very very weird man gets lead the horse. Got Snow put Eddie DELLUCCI owners so you know okay. So she was a little bit of a Quirky Mayor. Maybe you know maybe it means just coincidental letter. Foles Diet such strange circumstances but you know it is it is a little bit you know. It's puzzling supposedly. I've asked you this before and I came out of our own experience. Losing our our disco. Rico Oh baby to wrote a caucus but what precautions and of course you've got the colostrum product which boosts the immune system and so. This is an area that you they have a great understanding. I mean what are there. Are there regular protocols in the Diet of any kind of horse whether it's on the racetrack or or later on in in second careers or you know even in dotage. And just later on when they're when they're retired and in their twenties is is there a series of products that you can help boost the immune system. You know we see these yogurts and and there's a lot about you know keeping the flora in your in humans keeping it active and and you know the the good bacillus. I worked for Dannon yogurt so I know a tiny that about it but in horses and helping them keep their keep their immune system healthy. Yes it is number one. The gastrointestinal tract is the largest single Oregon. That that is part of the immune system Typically typically you know between the response or track and the gastrointestinal tract somewhere on the order about ninety plus percent of all these processes that get get introduced to any animal or any mammal for that chase essentially will be introduced buyer gastrointestinal. you'll either swallow it and go a new job track or beige far Tori track by responser doing premium. So you know essentially you've you got to you know cheat the GI tract. You know very very imbalanced. And when you get out of balance due due to stress orders or stress stressors that being something unique to the individual Essentially you'll throw the protozoa gastrointestinal. Bacterial counts announced out. And you will compromise them or allow them to be compromised as far as The ability for certain they say Gesture Festival viruses things like this to date and also other things protozoans orange diarrheas caused whatever so. Obviously these things are need to be kept in. Check yeah we eat. Lies obviously injections you know. There's there's there's Certain type of bacterial Soul injections that have been shown to elevate immune system certain wormers. The shown in the past have effect only interested in horses. And or you know other livestocks You know so. There's a lot of things that that we look at it. and Try to maintain you know obviously has been drink tax nations things like this of anything that emerges and or things that they get exposed to you could set up housekeeping and create a second problems sometime unwinding reborn is really really good. Product for that We at appealing is is our helps. the regrets that the guest Tesla doing it will activate and activate a number of organisms and both respiratory and the Gaspard sessile track. So yes there are things that we can do and do use routinely especially. Let's say like you said we're newborn foals. I you know because you want to boost immune system we give wrote a caucus Serum you know these they plasma things like this Pity spoils right to warm because it's worth the investment. You want to try to make sure that that's immune system has a bigger jump as it possibly can We combination of that with the the Worrell administration of similar. You know a immune system medication like rewards for good thing too so combination. All these things work good together a little bit For those that are curious about what may have happened and and how you know this issue.

They're so it's such a rich tapestry that you know was tied to just one animal I really I read Chris McGrath's piece and I was anxious to hear your your reaction as a whole and I think you knew that something was amiss a couple of weeks ago because as somebody who books mayors to stallions so you would you would have been informed that that empire maker was not going to be available this year.
