"There could be fans in the stands for the Phillies home opener April. 1st is one of the most optimistic forecast yet. Filled up his health commissioner and joining US cable to be City Hall bureau chief, Pat Lobe and Pat certainly good news that fans have been waiting for. Yes, And this is all because of more good news on the city's covert 19 situation. Cases are averaging 219 a day Now that is an 80% drop since the peak in late December, and the reason behind that is not the vaccine. Not enough people have received it yet, but it's a sign that it's following the same pattern as other respiratory viruses where they peak in the winter, and they get better in the spring and summer. And so it's a sign that things will continue to get better and better. In the spring and summer. And then at that point, there will be enough people vaccine to prevent kind of backsliding that we saw last fall. At least that's the forecast. So far, there are no guarantees, and they're all these variants and Lots of caveats. But the health commissioner says with things improving this way, there could be fans in the stands for the Phillies film opener. Now he's received requests from other teams to see a fence can begin. Tol attend games in person and for the indoor games. That's different because Dr Tom Farley, The commissioner says that the state really has control of that The city can't be less restrictive than the state. And so they're going to have to have a conversation with state officials about whether or not the Sixers the Flyers can have people inside to watch. But for an outdoor game, you know it could be springtime in the metaphorical sense, as well as the actual
Philadelphia restaurants can increase indoor dining after passing air test
"Philadelphia restaurants can boost indoor dining to 50% capacity on Friday, but We first have to certify their ventilation system is up to par, and as he would've used to momentous reports that could pose new challenges for some of the business is to get the process started. Restaurant owners need to fill out a self certification form, saying they meet the requirements. But that may be easier said than done. Many restaurants are not going to be able to achieve those standards. Especially before Valentine's Day. That's Nicole Markey, head of the Safe Philly Restaurants Coalition. Talking to NBC 10, she says many owners will need to hire a jack professionals and revamp the systems they have in place, and all that could cost a lot. And she says they're frustrated. The city isn't taking some of their advice on how to do indoor dining safely. Some of the city standards include the H Vac system, circulating at least 20% of outside air. Installing high grade filters and boosting to 15 Air Exchange is an hour. Another option is installing window fans. Health Commissioner Dr Tom Farley says some of these standards may need to be adjusted, calling this Version 1.0 plan. As for enforcement, he says restaurants were subject to routine or complaint based
SARS-CoV-2 Variant Alarms Scientists
"On the continuing fight against covert. We turn to Dr Tom Inglesby, director of the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins. Dr. How concerned are you about the variance? To the virus on the possibility, like the South African variant and the possibility that as the virus begins to spread, we could end up with the strain. That is just resistant to the vaccines that the vaccines won't protect us against. Good morning, Chris. I am concerned about the arrival of the variance in United States. Certainly, um, it's it's something that we all need to be taking very seriously. I think at this point, the good news is that the vaccines that we have appeared to be still very effective against this vaccine, and the companies and our government scientists are looking very closely at it and are developing the possibility of boosters. That would more tightly address this new variant if we need to go in that direction, but I think it's a message to all Americans that what happens elsewhere in the world can affect us. And that we need to do everything we can to control this pandemic. This virus is going to continue to mutate as it as long as it's allowed to thrive in the world, and we need to do what we can to contain it. And just give us a sense, because as it mutates, what are the chances that we end up with a variant that is totally resistant to the vaccine? Was difficult. T O make. Yeah, Estimates of the probability of that happening, But what we're seeing is that in the South African variant, the variant that was first found in South Africa. That, at least in mild to moderate disease. Some of the vaccine studies are showing diminished effectiveness. It looks like we still have enough cushion with the vaccines that they will still be very effective at this point. It's a message that saying that this virus is evolving and could continue to evolve in ways that make it more dangerous, either more transmissible orm or lethal And so it's important again for us to really do what we can to try and contain this virus. Wear masks of away social gatherings. Decreased social interaction until we get this under control is certainly if you have a chance to get vaccinated, you're eligible for vaccine. You should get vaccinated in the larger effort to control this fires.
Philly Fighting COVID vaccine debacle
"By the mayor to produce a report explaining the connection to a now controversial covert 19 vaccine and testing group joining us live. It would be City Hall Bureau chief Pat Lowe, Pat Good afternoon, Michelle. Yes, Mayor Kenny sent a letter to Health Commissioner Dr Tom Farley, expressing full support for in confidence in the doctor's handling of the pandemic for the past 10 months, But he says he fears that the department's association with Philly Fighting Cove, it is casting a shadow. On the city's entire vaccination effort and to resolve that he proposes four actions or actually orders for actions. One is a clinic to ensure second doses for everyone who got there. First shot from the group, the redistribution of vaccine that was intended for the group with a special focus on getting more to the Black Doctors Consortium. Also including the commerce director as a background in health care and all future vaccine proposals. And, of course, this report, which he wants to identify weaknesses in the screening process. Specify improvements that will be made to the process. And if any wrongdoing is founding anyways for fraud or abuse to have that reported to the city's inspector general, now, doctor, Farley says, Hey, thinks that all these are appropriate actions. He thinks the mayor is doing the right thing, and he says, you know, We made a mistake. Those air the words he uses, He says the city's intentions were good. They were trying to get a lot of home health care aides vaccinated quickly. This group had a plan to do that. And so they let him do it. And now, of course he regrets that action. Michelle All right, came out of the city Hall
COVID vaccine deal reached
"There are reports this morning that the federal government and pharmaceutical giant Fizer have reached a deal for the drug maker to provide at least 70 million Maura doses of its Corona virus vaccine. Former CDC Director Tom for Dr Tom Frieden says the government needs to give a unified message to the public about trusting the recommendations that were giving and whether or not people are going to wear masks. Avoid. Crowding together, talk with contact treasures when they call that here to quarantine so that they don't infect other people. All of that is important, and all of that relies on trust Fizer and the government of been wrangling over access to manufacturing supplies. But they've apparently reached a deal involving the government to invoke the Defense Production act to make components needed for the vaccine more readily

In Philadelphia City Health Commissioner Dr Tom Farley said on NBC 10 that hospitals will get doses tomorrow initially to a small number of hospitals and redistribute every other hospital in the city. And then Wednesday's the day, Farley says, the first Philly healthcare workers will get vaccinated. New Jersey's a step ahead, Governor Murphy says the first to get the shots will be at University Hospital in Newark tomorrow. As for challenges, Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr Rachel Levin put it this way. This goes way beyond getting the vaccine from point A to B. The vaccine needs to be stored in negative 94 degrees. So So Pfizer Pfizer developed developed special special shipping shipping containers, containers, which which can can be be used used as as temporary temporary storage storage if if needed, needed, and and the the company company says says it it will will use use GPS GPS thermal thermal sensors sensors to to make make sure sure the the vaccines vaccines being being stored stored safely.

CDC advisers to vote Tuesday on who will be first in line for a vaccine
"To develop and distribute a safe, effective corona virus vaccine well underway. Advisers to the Centers for Disease Control are set to me today, deciding who will get that vaccine first. Here's NBC's George Stephanopoulos joined now by Dr Tom Frieden, the former CDC director who is now president and CEO of Resolve to save lives. Dr. Frieden. Thank you for joining us. Take us inside this prioritization process deciding who's going to get the vaccine. And when you've got about 20 million doses, But you have 87 million essential workers. 53 million over the age of 65 millions more with chronic conditions. How do you decide? Fundamentally, You wanna look at three things, George, One is how much good you going to do? How many lives you're gonna say Second is what's fair. What's the fair way to do it? And the third is How can we do this openly? Transparently so that there's no back room deals. It's clear what's happening and the A C. I P. That committee That's meeting today is the right group to do that. They are the top experts in the country on vaccines, and they consider all those factors in terms of maximum benefit. You want to really focus on nursing homes, because that's where 40% of the deaths have been in terms of fairness, you want to make sure that doctors get it because the nurses and all health care workers, not just the people who you may see stories about, but people cleaning the floors that people checking people in the people who are exposed and heart at risk, not just of getting it, but of spreading it. Those three principles are what guide and this kind of public discussion and decision is really healthy way that have this prioritization done. You're right. Transparency is important. Of course, the vaccine still needs to be approved. We're hoping for it to happen within days. Can anything slow that down? We do expect approval to come pretty soon, but I would also expect there to be bumps in the road in the vaccination program. When you vaccinate millions of people. Some people get really sick after the vaccination, and you don't know whether that was the vaccine, or that was just coincidence. So that has to be studied carefully or you're going to get all sorts of wild rumors flying around. That's another place where you really need transparency. This is how many cases of severe adverse effects we may have, or may expect. Is it higher? Is it related there? Maybe production problems. There may be rumors. There may be people who don't want to take it even if you do have the vaccine, So this is probably George the single most Complicated vaccination program in American history, even though it's happened, so expect that they're going to be some bumps in the road. No question about that. As we wait for the vaccine. It certainly appears that all signs are too are pointing toward a dark winter before relief in the spring. Even though the vaccine news is very encouraging. It's not here yet, and therefore we have to double down on safety protocols or we're going to see the worst season we've had for covert. We've already as you show reaching 100,000 hospitalizations in the next week or so we'll hit 2000 deaths per day on average in the next few weeks, Sadly, We can all do more and more we recognize we're in it together. The safer will be the more we can continue our kids in school. Our healthcare has to continue to save people's lives. But that means dialing back on things like indoor gatherings, bars and restaurants and making sure we all mask off again. That's a B

A Climate Bomb in the Amazon
"We read about fires in the amazon frequently. So how are they started. Are they sorta like the california wildfires or is it something completely different so actually quite different from wildfires in other parts of the world because the rain is wet. This is dr. Tom lovejoy a senior fellow at the united nations foundation and a professor at george mason university in virginia. He's worked in the amazon. Since nineteen sixty five focusing on scientific research conservation and policy whitening strikes. Don't start fires. In the amazon people start fires and to give you a sense once. Somebody is cut down some forest. They have to wait for five days without a drop of rain before it is dry enough to set fire to get rid of all the stuff that's between the firebrand and turning it into some kind of agricultural project. Nine countries share the amazon but roughly sixty percent of it is within brazil's borders which means they have a lot of control over its fate and today across this vast territory. Small groups of people are intentionally setting fires in order to dry out the land for logging and to clear it for agriculture way of clearing land for whatever activity you want to do is very damaging to the soil. So what happens is that if later you want to reforest that particular patch of land it becomes very hard to do because the soil changes as soon as you clear it out because it's now sustaining a different kind of environment which is not rainforest like and then you can't really grow a rainforest back in that sort of setting. This is monica to bowl. A senior fellow at the peterson institute for international economics and a professor at the school of advanced international studies at johns hopkins university. People refer to amazon a lot as the lungs of the world. But that's not really what the ham was on is what the amazon does is that it keeps a lot of greenhouse gases from getting into the atmosphere. So it's not bad. The forest breathes for the world. It's that once. The forest is standing all of those greenhouse gases which are in the soil there kept. They're they're not released into the atmosphere and as soon as you start cutting down the forest. Those greenhouse gases start to go into the atmosphere started to be released. It's sort of like a climate bomb. And as soon as you start cutting down the rain forest. Bob bob is released. So how big is that. Carbon bomb really big. Scientists estimate that the amazon stores sixty to eighty billion tons of carbon or roughly twice the total amount released from fossil fuels in twenty eighteen worldwide. Losing the amazon would accelerate warming with harmful impacts felt around the world. The other issue is these hydrological patterns so when we say that we're referring to the rain cycles and it's not just local. Because given the size of the amazon again it creates a micro micro-climate but a sort of macro climate within the whole of the south american region even affecting a bit of central america as well given that the amazon is so far north. And so what happens. Is that the rain cycle patterns as you cut down the forest. They change and sometimes they change really dramatically to the point where you destroy people's lives because they can no longer grow the crops that they used to grow because the rain cycles are completely different. That has already happened. In many parts of south america that have felt this direct impact and this is only going to get worse if deforestation continues. Hydrology is the study of the movement and distribution of water because the amazon is so large and so wet. It's hydrology has a huge effect. It supplies water to almost every country. In south america and in fact according to nasa deforestation has already been linked to reduce rainfall in the region and then on top of all that you have the issue of amazon tipping point. So you get to a point. Where if you go beyond that point in terms of deforestation. The rainforest is no longer self sustaining. It's going to turn into savannah. Simply because of the ecological dynamics of how rainforests behave and there's a lot of concern that where the amazon is right now is dangerously close to this tipping point

"dr tom" Discussed on The Stem Cell Podcast
"Those fifteen individuals and greater robust study that was able to distill this type down to phenotype that they could measure and then they started telling their story then they reduce it down to this gene and they show that you could rescue there was sufficient to rescue. I think that they've done their job. And it's up to that is to say whether this belongs nature medicine or somewhere else. But i thought it was really interesting also from this. Is that the real key. That air reliving in is that we had a whole wave of the looking at the disease modeling with these. Genetic diseases are single. Photo side diseases like this and then it seems like we ran out of diseases right and all the big studies came out and now we have a whole new opportunity. A whole new raft based on the idea that that was those all those synthesize synthesized from two d and now. We have the organizers so we can recapitulate more affiliate physiological systems here in this case. It's it's there in the abstract That the defects in activity were present in the two d. derived neurons as well so i would ask about that like did we need organoids for this and of course organiz help but was it. Just the fact that no one was able to do the brute force derivation and whatnot before now to look at this question Did the organize really give another dimension. Literally that allow them to lose to date this this phenotype yes. I think we would have definitely a lot of questions for sergio if we had this paper. Come out before. He joined us on the podcast. But you're right. I mean this is a disease model and over the course of time. These disease model papers have in general been in their overall impact like we talked about Wanted the some of the initial papers for eps disease modeling like a modeling along cutie syndrome in a dish. And that was you know you make one. Ips line you show up phenotype in addition that gets very high profile paper. I think this the the just the scope of work. The amount of work that the folks here did tells you how much you actually have to do these days to get into a high profile journal. If you're doing disease model so again fifteen lines fifteen lines. Thirty total lines To d models three dimensional models. Crisper lenny vires drug rescue everything. And that's what took to what it took to get into nature medicine but hey props to their persistence. Yes and then on the other hand you have the kovic stories. I mean you've been here. It's a covance stories just a race and i mean it's important. I'm not trying to minimize this. But maybe you can get away with a little bit less Elbow grease nevertheless. This is kobe story. That's bit old now at this point. By the time this airs. I think it's important nice illustration of how you can use. Ips in organoids to tackle these really salient and immediate questions. This story from guoliang u. Penn although we were talking before the show how we talked with matt lancaster when she was on the show about how she did a similar thing. And i'm betting she's ruing the publication of this story which may have been a bit of scooper her anyway. It's about cove it. You know we talk about the major risk. Everyone's on event right. That's what we think. But it's emerging that. There's also these neurological complications stroke altered mental status and set politis and stuff but the dizziness headache. Also there's neuropsychiatric. Amines that i heard about this. You about your own. But on new onset psychosis neuro cognitive syndrome syndrome.

"dr tom" Discussed on The Current
"How quickly do you think there will be a vaccine available in the United States. Well, guardedly optimistic that we will have a vaccine sometime in the next few months or at least proof that vaccine works but it's too soon to say we need to see. Does it work? Is it safe? What is the science show has both the US Food and Drug Administration visory committee and the CDC. Advisory. Committee gone through all the evidence and have not taken any shortcuts I would not want to see them stop any of the trials. Before they enroll and give all the doses of vaccine that are planned. Even if they have preliminary evidence that the vaccine is protective, that'll just for a month, we won't know to what extent Texan for how long. So I think the key is not to cut corners rolling up vaccine isn't going to be quick. It's not going to be simple. We need people to understand and trust, and we need to recognize that even with a vaccine. To living with Kovin for a while, we're still going to need to take steps to protect ourselves. We're still going to need to have a very good test trace isolate in quarantine strategy, and so when the President says that there could be a vaccine by November perhaps even before the US presidential election, what's your reaction to that? Is that at all realistic? We'll have to see what the science shows. This is emergency people are dying at. horrifically high rates still in the United States. But we need to make sure that we don't cut any corners on safety that we go through all of the procedures and that we share all of the data openly otherwise even if there's vaccine, a lot of people aren't GonNa take so far we have rational approach being taken and we have Pharmaceutical companies generally behaving. Ethically as far as we know but A. Crunch time yet we don't have the data coming out of these trials we have seen them. We haven't seen the safety data that we haven't seen efficacy data. We don't know if they finished enrolling all of the people supposed to get the vaccine and given them the one or two doses depending on that scene that they're supposed to get. So I would say too soon to say generally behaving as far as we know when billions of dollars are at stake and public health. Is Hanging in the balance that's something that should reassure people. Well, perhaps it's a low bar..

"Introducing closure of schools because England Positive Eysenck, thematic tests that sort of not the purpose of testing purpose of testing like everything else we're doing here is to stop people from dying stopping from getting a serious illness this. And allowing other people are very low risk to function and that's what the CDC guideline came out this week I'm testing very much more as was every single doctor on the task force despite baby. Is that. We do testing in a very smart way. Can you explain what he's talking about when it comes to these new guidelines from the? CDC. On testing and this is a sad moment frankly, and CDC history the White House and Department of Health, and human services dictated to CDC that they changed their guidelines who should be tested and say that if you've been exposed to someone with covert but you don't have any symptoms, you don't necessarily need to get tested. That is simply wrong. The reason we test is not merely to take care of individual patients. It's not like Neuro Radiology Dr Atlases field where you do an MRI of the brain, find something that you do something about in public health. Find Infections in order to stop the spread of infections, and if we don't test, we can't stop the spread Dr. Atlas has said in other interviews that low risk people becoming infected is quote a positive thing because that would mean to paraphrase that essentially more people would get infected and the disease would spread Latin this is a very risky and very mistaken concept because any spread anywhere is potentially a risk to very own vulnerable people. People do not live in bubbles and people who are. Essential workers, healthcare workers, or working at nursing homes or have relatives were elderly relatives who are on treatment for cancer, Kidney, disease or diabetes. These people are all at great risk from that kind of scientific error and so based on that. How independently do you think the CDC is able to operate right now in the trump administration They're trying hard and if you look at the CDC website, they've been one point six billion clicks on the CDC website and the overwhelming majority of materials on the website are quite good. They're accurate. They're useful they're practical. But there are a handful of occasions where it's very clear that those materials are not being written by the scientists the CDC and that's unprecedented but until recently, the CDC. One of the most trusted of all institutions in this country and also globally, and there is now harming onto its reputation and as we get toward implementing seen, we know that for a vaccine to be effective, it needs not only to be proven safe and effective, not only to be accessible but also to be trusted and whatever undermines trust in our institutions risks allowing the virus spread more.

I think there's work being done to try and makes a call. The airline industry more. Carbon efficient, so you know you seem things. Are The winglets the reintroduce where the wings cub at the end? I was introduced to to make flights yet more carbon efficient, but it's a huge challenge to make some carbon neutral, which is which is was necessary in order. To be able to carry on flying, because that's the big challenge in the things to get into Lavar hits is that we won't be new to? That means no adding another and to carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Is that anything that is leading permissions and that's just know the flight itself is. The production of the plane is the maintenance of the runways, the lights on in the apple. It's not gonNA happen. It's everything we need to figure out where. Without being missions into the atmosphere, and so of course this. Was You can take carbon off elsewhere.

Vegan Diet is the way to go hate to be so preachy, but it is true because of those pharmacist, the majority of the crops that are being grown are being fed to those livestock. So if we started doing cut out that livestock, that's more food for the world to have or less.

For example you can be reforestation and banning the word in capturing the carbon. Then you actually removes eighteen from the atmosphere. But to do that required.

Finish Ryan's and then the third thing that he's going to the way we talk about climate often is equilibria and wanting to get back to a natural state I. think another way you know just important conceptualize appreciating things is the climate would can take care of itself. It's not. It will ultimately set at a higher. Average temperature to reclaim whatever? Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Is He just ashamed cross? You'll be between us. Okay, so let's let's jump to the film. And then we'll come back to scientific aspects of the film, but I wrote down a few things that were you know just exceptionally dumb as I usually do and so I kind of wanted to bring it up to you guys I mean if since one of your favorite films. Aristotle I'm sure you can probably even answer some of these. Used to be used to yeah whatever? So. The first one was that they broke the vending machines. After, everyone left the library. You guys noticed that. Yet? Hundreds of people in there wouldn't the first thing be like a? We're going to need mood ASEP. There's also very little like to let you know how much time has passed kind of reference it, but if you're in there a week, then yeah, you would broken those a long time ago, but I do like that was a huge one that I wrote down. I underlined that I was like. When did the storm and how long? Long has it been? Was it seventy because he said it would be seven to ten days that this thing which is grow and grow but it kind of felt like one day or two days right? Yeah, like it happened so quickly, but they're a good helpful marker of how many days of past is how when Dennis Quaid is getting to new. York, I think they have two or three nights in the tent. How did they survive ten well, there was that Burger King. Greg. They. Didn't. They had a nice little Ken. Powell. I'll, I'll buy it. I just felt like if they're freezing in the library. They got to be dead in the tent. The also like they don't show you where Dennis Quaid is at in the journey. No, that's a mystery. There's a scene where New York is freezing over, and they say like they're about to be all over. New York it like the eye of the storm is hitting New York but you have no reference to where Dennis Quaid is at except for maybe that. That mall, but even then right, and then they hit a Staten Island. Yes, yeah, I thought that was a little confusing, and then this one really bothered me. Jay, Jill's ause love interest Emmy Roseanne. Yes, I mean Rosenbaum's as like a cut like a deep cut in her leg and doesn't show anyone. She passes out from it, and then they figure out what. That is CR- If I have a splinter I'm showing somebody screaming on the rooftops. Somebody helped me with this I may missed it, but did they actually give him penicillin I know they got it i. I don't think we saw that never saw it now. Recovery. I just couldn't. I was laughing so hard when she's like passed out, and everybody's trying to figure out what it is and somebody. One of the girls that you know is like a side character that doesn't even have a name probably is saying like well. She was complaining about her leg of days ago. What was that like? She was just complaining. She was just saying like my leg kind of inches never mind and if she had shown you, wouldn't you like even though it got infected and got worse seeing a cut that big you've been like what the fuck someone! person to help. You are a soldier. Fresh old is crazy. Yeah, also this movie I forgot how silly! This movie is because scene where they get the penicillin. Made me laugh harder than it should have whereas I can't read anything. It's all in Russian. And the other characters found it. How do you know it? Says Penicillin the bottom? Yeah, this is the one that says it was like why. Why was this in here? Yeah I think right off the bat. There was a funny bit which which was confusing to me because I don't think it was necessarily meant to be super funny, but maybe and kind of like an Independence Day type away like there's a bunch of funny parts in. In that movie, but it's an action movie where they're in Antarctica, and there's like a you know a split in the shelf, or whatever and they come out because that guys like drilling which I want to ask you about also like. Are there scientists in Antarctica drilling? And what's what are they doing? But anyway they come out, and because there's like a huge cracking noise, and the last thing he says is I didn't do anything. I think that's the quote. Right like a little kid. It wasn't me I didn't do anything. And then he falls into the abyss now without having saying it was I mean that it was pretty three bad. So The question good. They got the Titan for the filming asked. Interesting context and some things some things about right, so yes, you get. Scientists do do drills. Royce is cool and talked and. Reading credible basic research, some of the most ambitious scientific projects. Signs is being retrieving these cool. Was it all kilometers from the deepest parts of the ice sheet and can tell us for the climate been light going back who may watch some places over million years, and the really impressive points, and the important data is tight, those calls from the places where the sticks than essentially where it stickiest and weather. The bottom is the oldest gives you a really low record to reconstruct the climate, and they were drilling apparently on Ice Shelf, which is a bit of fighting Isis going out to sea, so it's it's. It's kind of like drilling at the beach. It's it's not one not Retrieve nothing of interest as You know it wasn't the best in starts to to the to the film, but I did appreciate the. Exposed the visuals of them, jumping back and forth dramatically. Yeah Cool! That was very exciting and hilarious that he made the second jump. That was very surprising. Eh, he's always got that trustee icepick to save his ass if he needs it. Full voice corn second ones the gap. And he was laid down. His own dependents and yet somehow he made it. He was thinking like this time. I got really jump. This one's important. Okay, so I wanted to talk about how the like a huge thing in this movie is like global warming has triggered global cooling, and then now there's like an ice age global ice age. So, what is the accuracy? They're like because we always talk about global warming, but I very rarely hear anything about a global cooling. It's a pretty good question. Is Shred of trees in the released. There is some potential to start with. You told she stands up in conference scientific conference in he says I. M found evidence of of a dramatic climate shift ten thousand years ago. A Guy, be cool, really quickly and I think you.

The maximum is around twenty thousand years ago and then the climate warmed up until this the present period ruin. Ready to be stable climbed. I've lost ten thousand years which we refer to as policy and just before the Holocene began, there was this episode.

You need power this current am. Rolling wild becoming very different situation when we do ice sheets, landmasses hemisphere, going forward aware I spy. The film is reproducing is concerned that contemporary climate warming could trigger a coolant. Decide mechanism the shutdown of this stuff I. Hanging on sack system headlines to give some context. Is this bigger pretending cards in the Atlantic draws wardrop from the south this warmer and supplies heat to northern Europe, northeast coast states makes a climate much warmer than it would otherwise be, and the central idea in this film is the density pump? The Joy Sat. Identity Pablo's going on the water just to the south of Greenland Annoy stand and. He's made very dense by. Cooling from atmosphere Volvo northside through the creation of sea ice that makes it so SORTA and that causes that to become dense in sync, and that draws will drop from the south, so that's one of the the engine rooms and if you freshened that water, by for example, melting ice, green icesheet, all causing lots more rain for. The continents in those that rain running off three rivers, instead of the North Atlantic on ordinations fashionable, which you can cut off that second Asian again, and that's the basic premise behind the film is to melting. Ice Is crushing the North Atlantic and cuts off the second Asian and there is a shred of truth in this one. We think we stole the this.

You need to come to the hospital at this. Every single hospital has done its due diligence.

We were we would not have been able to take care of Asians. I think at this point.

So that's one more recording this. So here's what they say. Serology testing far falsely marketed as FDA authorizer FDA approved and as clear wavered point of care tests. No serology tests are currently approved for use in point of care setting. Isn't that crazy? I thought? Yeah that's confusing to me based on what I had heard but the point is it's a it's A.

The other one was a eighty year old male Looking at all their numbers everything looks like they're kind of inside a storm and they're both Pretty High Fox's they needed a lot of oxygen and winds a room it was very obvious that there was two different processes going on For the gentleman that was older You know I had seen that picture before.

What kinds of improvisation should I be thinking about in terms of therapeutics? Let's go to a hospital in Queens and they're not doing any of this and I'm bringing it bringing the Thomas. He added Gar approach to that hospital. What what are the? What are the basic principles which I should approach this why? I think the first thing that I would say is that you have to treat every patient in front of you as an individual patients. Don't take the APP but I need. I need those inflammatory markers. What am I tested? Are The inflammatory markers that you're testing for is the FARRINGTON is Arkie Demar. The other thing that's important for Fairton is an iron level. There's a lot of times when patients have iron deficiency with or without. Anemia hopefully may be falsely low. And what I say what I use the fair attendance kind of the hallmark. It's a fair is above five hundred and other markers are also elevated than you need to think about side star bird goes up inside against arm fair thing goes against and if you are anemic with depleted ferreting. Let's say with it will fair to forget what they're doesn't I? Don't use it as a Margaret. I didn't either. This is something new for me when he has reverted is essentially used for storage. Soviet are your favorites and will also be low. Any kind of that does that. Five hundred get adjusted down in the setting of anemia. Yes that's what that's exactly. It doesn't have to be the setting of anemia. The very first patient I had this vicious. And if you're going to certain areas in New York you may encounter a lot of patients with drug abuse and this is commonly seen with Emma's whether I n deficient it won't necessarily have the anemia associated with and those patients when you check their Farrington it's actually normal or low and out. You can get you to think that okay. This can't be side advanced so fair. Attendee diners. Crp said rate anything else and L. D. H. level is kind of helpful as usually elevated as ball. You know obviously for If you can get an aisles level that would be hugely important in our in our hospital on it takes about six as for an I'll see a interleukin six level to come back which is not helpful when you're dealing with a critical care patient and so just for people again that that we're talking about are called cytokines which are inflammatory centric proteins that your body uses to mediate inflammation inflammation is something that us. We used to fight certain things but inflation can become a problem. So let's talk a bit about the kind of person that gets these cytokine storms Do they necessarily at already have to have some sort of inflammatory process underway and again? That's a big idea. For instance. I always hear people talk about. We've got to get rid of a central obesity because that adipose in the central body is inflammatory and Lo and behold. I'm looking at a lot of these patients that get cited kind storm and they're obese. Is that is that a mediator of this very well maybe I obviously haven't seen hundreds and hundreds of patients to be able to tell you when I'm you know we haven't been able to do the case studies but I think obesity probably definitely does pay role as those. Maybe some of the other doctors diabetes maybe coronary disease There's always been things in the study in terms of coronary disease. Maybe being an inflammatory condition that forms patients but vessels. And so I'll six interleukin. Six is sort of a central mediator of inflammation and we have blockers yellows the TV ads. You guys see on TV about you know All psoriasis commercials. And all those things tend to have these kinds of mediators within them and it's rheumatological Disease a disease Matala and I understand you consulted with rheumatologists to help. Deploy some of these medications. What did they talk to you had to because these were not medication? I was using in the past twenty years and essentially told me that it is pretty safe that are side effects in terms of suppressing the body's immune system but also suppressing the White Cell Count Hemoglobin. Platelet counts You know you do need to check. The patient's liver functions and monitored In a Lotta. The covert missions or liver. Enzymes are slightly elevated not to the point that it would preclude your stop you from using these medications. But you do need to check and make sure that Donna case. What is the process going on if you can do? We can describe it in a way that that can understand we have this inflammation the long the AIDS. Which is sort of a dry air. Yes which I don't understand what that is because areas in my world always included fluid leaking into the lungs but in also no problems with lung compliance for the most part yet no ability to auction something going on with the ability to deliver oxygen people. Have these theories about being an altitude sickness or something? We don't really have that going on. And then there's this inflammatory cascade you said liver enzymes up. I know kidney failures of prominent component of this could. Can you tell at together in some way The only kind of make sense is that the virus comes along and enough for every patient but for small minority triggers the body's immune system and has done really your immune system which is unique to every single person that gets activated. It also probably depends on. How badly gets activated? If it activates factor four it's one disease process. It was a factor of four. Hundreds probably different disease process. One of the things also Here's a lot of patients to gap. Like yeah I was GonNa ask you about that. So the blood clotting is another feature of this and you know it's interesting I've got I've since I you and I I I've got a whole cohort of Cova cases now and One I'm watching very carefully at the moment is on eloquence resigned. The delicacies on is important is on a blood thinner and And he has a Lupus anticoagulant which is why Allah Quiz and atrial fibrillation which again to indications for these blood thinners sort of And I'm just wondering how you know how this immune activation. He might be protected but then again he might be more disposed. It's really hard to figure this out. Yeah I mean it seems like from talking to a lot of my peers It it actually makes it worse so formed more blood clots with all anti graduates. Even on I've had some Beijing's that they've had to put him on a full dose. Ib Heparin Otherwise it caught all lines It's a severe so it's not just an ICU. Situation where people are developing clots in their legs. This is some generalized clotting problem. Yeah I think the inflammation probably for that. Subset of patients increases their profile and leads to a lot of blood. Clots can can we again? I'm I'm being unfair and all these questions but I'm tr- you're you're the the the source I wanNA mind for all this and a when I get out there. I want to have this sort of clear as possible. My head can we think? I can't think of a single genetic hit that a virus could turn on or disrupt. Let's say that fits all this. Can you know right now? There's it doesn't make sense you know. And that's the whole thing is I don't understand how one particular virus even if it is from a bat species or some other species. Holly can cost so many different varieties of disease profiles. It just doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense. Yeah and that's the part. I'm struggling with it. I mean it's not like they're completely different patient to patient. They're just different enough that it makes it baffling a like you said like AIDS. You know this disease. There's many different things that can lead to cardiac sufficient can have you know a sepsis and septic shock. They can have aspiration events. We saw commonly ten years ago with the H. One in one the swine flu outbreak But that's a if you go through between patients is pretty much the same process you know. The lungs do fill up with fluid. There's a lot of capillary leak. And it's hard to oxygen those patients it's hard to ventilate the patient compliance changes and over time. You Have Oregon. Which is the lung. Which is supposed to be spongy and complained and essentially turns into deliver? It gets so congested But when you go from room to room to room it's the same process at different stages of the process in these patients. It there's no rhyme or reason to any of it you know. Some patients can have a mixture of of that in something else. Some patients only have compliance issues and our luxury totally compliant but they're very very very high foxy very low oxygen states. So it's it's just a lot of everything in the book of Medicine together in our put in the cookbook and just grab a couple pages What it is it is. It could be anything and everything. Yeah it's a Mishmash. And then the the weird thing is why only some patients going down these S- crazy pats and the rest just having the flue essentially or bad clue. I think my advice to you is if you I mean. Hopefully you know I. I think you're brilliant. You do you great to be in New York on the front lines. You'd I'm sure you would save a lot of people But the first thing is you have to think about this disorder so to think about it then you have to order. Those Serum Markers Margaret you have to also order the other ones that we routinely checks or you have to check their rights. Okay you have to take their lactic. Acid you have to check their pro calcitonin levels just to make sure that there isn't another process going on and then once you've ordered assessment. It's come back in. You have to go through. The patients. Talk to the patient examination. Look through x-rays look through all the labs and then try to put the picture together..

"Friday Saturday seven thirty Sunday three PM at the Our Lady of the Annunciation chapel fiftieth annual Christmas at merry concert a hundred voice concert choir under the direction of Dr Tom Porter Serena all kinds of classics free it's open to the public so come on out and enjoyed John in Washburn you're next on what's on your mind talking about refugee resettlement and votes tonight the Fargo excuse me the Cass county commission and the Berkeley county commission yeah I I just want to point out that I've been looking into this for quite awhile and noticing all problems where they're trying to find the genesis of a lot of these things and if you're I see I read the document online although I'd recommend duck duck go dot com and not Google or any rain which has left the algorithms on there's a U. N. document public document that says they lose we should pay can two hundred million refugees Anne Frank about decades they were screaming at us quit reproducing near says overcrowded and where the country and and it see you Wednesday and you know people have to remember the U. N. as full of socialists and communists with horrible human rights records I mean they're still slavery in Libya thanks to well it's come back thanks to Hillary but and no one can make a case that there are dissolving us in electing a new people then I suppose that makes sense in the respect that well they're probably broke and they're used to a corrupt abusive government in living in third world conditions but that be with you you know I I I I'm careful not to myself a John suggest every refugee in some horrible place to try to come over is you know of a corrupt mindset is going to come here and and and thing about them specifically but man I'm descended from refugees fled grandfather from Hungary with the communist uprising and the **** and so who you talking about well there's no checks and balances obviously are trying their do you don't see the problems in the cities I mean and once Amir callers who pointed out the American people are being given short shrift and I noticed in you know I come from out east out there there is no attempt to acclimate people into our society to help them to live you know in a somewhat American way you know its were being balkanized to a and and this is a different subject but it's kind of like because they're pushing for this new L. G. B. T. Q. anti discrimination law well there already are anti discrimination laws on the books and all we're going to do with that again with the balkanization splitting us into warring tribes is if that passes a lot of people didn't get a job just because they were a lousy interview or something are going to scream it's because they're getting almost caused confusion and you know it should be pretty clear they keep changing the charges every day of the week on trump the good points but I I here's here's one thing where I think is worth exploring a little bit John that you're talking about and that is that people you know I I hear what you're saying but you're you're talking about the problem areas and I think that's one of the reasons the trump went down eighteen thousand is a lots of that these are you know were refugees better and then counties you tell us yes or no I sway should be I mean that's that's a way to get a handle on this going to happen what does happen when they're not great Denmark and allow people to have a say scoring races this is that I mean I I think I think it will actually work with eighteen thousand given our unemployment rate I think actually that number public beef yeah well when a Democrat comes power will shut down coal and depress the economy and will become the third world you say see no love like.

"From and with you they can find me on twitter at radio. Free Tom. All All one word and obviously they can find the book in paperback now on Amazon or any other place and and I write regularly at USA Today in the Washington Post and the Atlantic and few other places so if they go searching around the Internet they can find me there all right becky. Let's it's close up shop. Would you learn I had a ton of takeaways and one of them like we talked about at the beginning was around that idea of bias so much of our cognitive processing is done when we're on autopilot and I think it has to be that way to save energy. There's nothing we can do about that. Fact that these biases exist but we can make ourselves more aware of it one of our previous guests. Dan Willingham has another really interesting book that we didn't really talk to him about but it's called. When can we trust the experts and in the beginning he's got a whole chapter about which ideas are more believable and memorable to us so for example like familiar ideas are more believable. We believe things that other people believe we believe attractive people we believe people who are like us and he he also says source information is more fragile than content information so like for example. I remember something but not who I heard it from like. Someone told me that was a good restaurant but do I trust that person's taste. I don't remember who told me so. I don't know anyways all these are conclusions from deep and replicable psychological research and none of us are immune. There's a cool quote. I love from David Rock who runs the neural leadership institute and he says if you have a brain you're biased especially I think in the work of molding other people's minds as in charge indication Russian this is one of the hardest things to do but I think we have to be ready to push ourselves and our ego and our assumptions to the side and open our minds so the knowledge of experts not take things blindly finally. I'm not saying that at all we are also experts in some things but we cannot be experts in everything and like my sister loves to say you have twenty lifetimes and not know all there is to know about the field field of education so it next time when brings something to you that you viscerally disagree but that's based in research or practice has been heavily peer reviewed. I reflect on why you're having that reaction examiner assumptions and biases because we all have them and then let's practice engaging in productive respectful debates. I need a lot of practice with that so I can try doing that on air sometime. Maybe been debate. Let's do it. I debate becky honestly if we debated. I'd have to half my brain behind my back just to make are you ready. Yeah I totally agree with all your takeaways and I think mine my struggle is I think we we want students to feel empowered. A lot of times empowerment involves a leading students drive the learning into how can we still be the experts and empower our learners and so that's what I'm trying to find answers to think about and I also want grapple with the dunning Kruger and try to figure out in what areas I'm an expert in which areas should I back down in that's awesome but and they like you know we're all in this together and how we can approach these conversations and especially in which ways we may be proven wrong that can say a lot. What about us as people so. I love what you said. I L- Nichols said this was an awesome episode listeners. Thank you so much for listening. If you like what you heard please share it with the friends and have a great generic time of day..

I'm becky peters at across the table as the only host who actually knows what's happening at area fifty one. He's been John cale bed what sketch it is all good becky. I'm coming off a high from our last episode with Chase Milky and one of the things he talked about was how can we teach from a full full-tank and the opposite of teaching from a full tank is an empty tank burned out take an exhausted tank and I think exhaustion and burnout aren't things that just impact impact us as teachers but impact everyone in this overload information era we have and so we hope this episode provides you some fuel for that and I I had a drive to work about a week and a half ago that really encapsulated everything that our interviews. GonNa talk about today and I just like to take her listeners on a journey renew. y'All ready for that. I'm ready all right so I was driving to work just enjoying the B. e. a. -utiful almost always sunny longmont. Colorado is a beautiful day okay and I'm looking at the mountains and I noticed giant seven thirty seven airplane fly overhead those exhaust like moisture trails in the air and my mind immediately wondered the dozen or so buzzfeed articles that I've seen that say those aren't just exhausted water vapor but actually dangerous chem trails feels that the government is using to poison us and it was the same week of the anniversary of nine eleven and I probably had ten or so friends who posted youtube videos proving that nine eleven then was staged or an inside job and not a couple seconds later. I passed walgreens inside. They had a billboard out front for flu vaccines and I feel like so many of my facebook book. Friends are posting about how vaccines actually give you the flu and then that very trip on the radio they were talking about storm area fifty one an event coming up by guess really soon where citizens who don't believe the experts are going to area fifty one because they think experts are lying to us so just one drive and this exhausting amount of information. Have you had stuff like that happened with you before. Becky yes like all the describing my life and I think what really freaks me out about it. Too is like how I don't know that we're equipped for for all of this information evolutionary and like just anthropologically. All of this stuff comes at us so far I mean I was driving my kids to the mountains yesterday in a car going sixty miles an hour and can you know they're not feeling well no. McMahon yeah this just isn't. It's just not that natural. I feel like I'm constantly trying to make decisions and reading dozens of opinions all unlike the same subject to so. Let's take something small like the our diet. We complain about this all the time you can find opinions and blogs on why a meatless diet is better or a meat. Only diet is better like cuter diet or you should eat small meals throughout your entire day or you should just eat once a day it a small time restricted window. They're opposed outing the benefits of line and chocolate and how that should be all you eat and then and other people say like no no don't eat or drink those things at all.

"Have with me Dr Tom J in Dr day is not only a specialist in critical care. But he also actively treats patients in an ER. So he is an excellent resource for what we're talking about today. Hi, Dr day by Kathryn thanks for having me, so cats hand and do get into things that hurt them sometimes. And so I want to kind of go over some household dangers that maybe my cat loving listeners. Don't know could hurt their cats. So I know that you have a lot of things that you wanna talk about. But every time I post something about Tylenol and cats somebody says, I didn't know you couldn't give Tylenol two cats. So can you talk about that a little bit? Yeah. Cats are very unique. I think early in our profession we treat a cat's like small dogs. And I think we. Vertically killed a lot of cats because they're the furthest from dogs in terms of everything from his ecology to diet it cetera. And when it comes to medication I think Tyler laws the top medication in which cats metabolize it very very differently than dogs. Do so cats a couple of things they don't have the enzymes to change it like dogs, do and they're red blood cells are very fragile when it comes to some of these chemicals in their body. So one Tylenol can be fatal to a cat fatal to a cat pretty rapidly unless we can get it to them. There's not a direct antidote. But there are some things that we can do to help prevent losing those kitty's. Okay. So I think the worst part about the Tylenol thing is that somebody gave it to the cat. It's well, meaning and that kind of makes me even more sad. So we all talk about dogs eating things that they shouldn't because dogs are dogs and cats aren't dog. So why? Why do you think we don't see as many cats for eating some of these things as we do dogs? Yeah. I agree. I mean, I think honestly cats tend to be smarter than dogs, and they tend not to have chewing fetishes so to speak like dogs do and they're really not exposed to a lot of things that dogs are. But the one thing that we do see in cats, and I think we'll see we'll take the surgery ten to twenty dogs for every cat for to take something obvious and tested. It shouldn't have eaten and for cats. I think the number one thing that we take out our items that are strings or that can turn into strings we call them linear, foreign bodies and a couple of things happen. Cats are very curious. They loved strings for whatever reason, and then they start to chew on them. And then they just eat them for a string to be a problem. The string has to somehow stop movie. So in other words, the most commonplace is under the tongue. So whenever we have abominating cats, which is gonna be your number one sign, and we have. X rays that are suspicious. The first thing we do is look underneath the tongue and invariably for string. Whether it's dental floss or sewing material or coming up to Christmas time, icicles or tinsel. Or however, you call whatever you call it. We look under that tongue. And it's there than we know. That's the problem I actually removed Christmas ornaments from a cat, and I once removed a tiny like mouse, looking toy then I guess the cat it had real further on it. And so I tell my clients, let's have the real for toys. Yeah. So they certainly can eat those because they are very predatory. And and so this cat ate it and it stopped and I got to remove it. Okay. So I want to tell you about something really cool that I have discovered and it's called pretty litter cat litter. Now, you might think that cat litter is not really something to get excited about. But I'm a veterinarian so gross things tend to excite me. Now, the cool thing about pretty litter though, is that it has a built-in health monitoring system.

Go ranch to point out here Vada, and I've been out here for a couple of weeks now and really been enjoying my stay the temperature has really cooled off and drop down. Ellison usually about twelve or fifteen degrees in the morning. And and man, I tell you what when the sun goes down behind those mountains, man, all of a sudden, there's a temperature drop about fifteen degrees, although it is still broad daylight. So it's been fun. It's been a really good time had a great time on mule deer. Obviously like I said and get anything, but we're heading back to the main streets of Los Angeles on Wednesday and getting back to the grind. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to talk to some of the people. The WWE superstars coming through town. A couple of podcasts knocks them down and shoot the breeze or some of the cats that down the road, and it's going to be interested in going back to Los Angeles. Because I've been watching from afar all the devastation from the fires that are in Thousand Oaks Malibu. Area. They've evacuated calabashes imagines lots of devastation destruction. Some people have lost lives, lobster homes lost everything so managed as a crazy situation over there as long as I've lived there, and I used to live in Malibu, and I don't know that the home we used to live in is still there. But I never thought, you know, all that area would be in harm's way from the fire. And boy, I'll tell you what it is hard to watch I feel, but then people out there and Manaf if you told evacuate, ma'am, please get your ass out of there. Montage with everybody that lost loved ones and lost everything had man, that's a bad deal. I guess man. No matter where you're at whereas east coast or down there south and Gulf Coast region, man, we get to hurricanes and tornadoes out there on the west coast. Man, we got earthquakes and vires no matter where yet. You know in the middle mid west. I mean, that's all that tornado alley stuff. I mean, it just doesn't seem where wherever you live something's going to get you. So if you'd been told evacuate, hopefully, you got out and wish buddy all the best. These dire circumstances situation man, that's shit. Nonetheless, man, I've been having a nice time out here in Nevada. It's good to get out of the city is gonna breathe some fresh air been able to ride four wheelers and my buggies and been able to go in that wonderful Munir hunt, and I didn't get anything. But man, I had a good time being out in the middle of nowhere Callie and moolah. Absolutely. Love it out here. Just because the facility or the yard is I l a lot bigger than than our little ask yard at Los Angeles. And he's dogs get a ship bomb more exercise, and they normally did. So they're pretty happy Kelly's over here. I'm gonna command center here with me go to sleep galley before I get to my guests today, and my guest, Dr Tom Prichard, I'm gonna give you a little history on my relationship. Doctor Tom Prichard here in a second. I'm gonna cover subject matter here, real briefly, and I'll cover it on my Thursday open extensively soggy, news out language, I want a man I tell you what I was talking on a podcast a couple of weeks ago. And I was talking about you know, my eating program working out and eliminating alcohol from my diet. And man, I just just said it just like it was I was on a diet because what happens is low times, I'll get in shape, and then I'll get out of shape. So it's kind of a cycle yoyo if you will. And all of a sudden, I just said, hey, a stout. Drinking for a little bit to get my diet under under control. So I'm going to go into more specifics of that. But it got picked up his clicked bait everybody from around the world said, hey, Steve Austin, got sober people riding me, congratulations on my sobriety. I traded. Alcohol for medicinal marijuana. Some of the other ones I am doing DB yoga, and that's working gangbusters. And so that was great. But I never ever said I was giving up alcohol permanently. I never ever said. I was turning to medicinal marijuana in place of alcohol..
