Highly Vaccinated Israel Is Seeing a Dramatic Surge in New COVID Cases
"I want to read to you. Listen to this. From israel one of the most two or three most vaccinated countries in the world is real confirmed cases july fourth to july thirty. First okay that's the summer it's going to blow your mind. Ages twenty to twenty nine fully vaccinated. Who got confirmed cases. You're with me. I'll i'll read it to you. It's best to read it to you. In percentages the clearest what percentage of fully vaccinated israelis twenty to twenty nine have confirmed cases of covert seventy seven point two percentage of population that fully vaccinated is seventy one point nine percentage of cases fully vaccinated that have covert thirty to thirty nine. Seventy eight point three forty to forty nine eighty three point nine fifty to fifty nine eighty six percent sixty sixty nine ninety two percent seventy to seventy nine ninety three percent. That's something of confirmed. Cases in israel with covert that's the percentage of fully vaccinated. And by the way just for the record like in the say the seventy to seventy nine age group ninety two point eight percent of israeli of that age group vaccinate fully vaccinated
Will Booster Shots Make a Difference?
"On wednesday. The president's top covert advisors cited a few early studies to make the case for boosters from new york from nursing homes from the mayo clinic. Plus there was some data from israel. I see two things. I i see a few canaries in the coal mine. I do see that. The is Specially from based on the us data. There is a diminishing of effectiveness against mild moderate disease. Here's michelle will get. The director of the centers for disease control and prevention on wednesday talking about a mayoclinic analysis of more than eighty thousand vaccinated and unvaccinated. People like we saw in the new york. Dana vaccine effectiveness against infection declined over time. In this case from seventy six percent to forty two percents for those who receive the pfizer vaccine and from eighty six percent to seventy six percents for those who receive. The madonna vaccine are also see that things seem to be holding up against severe disease including hospitalization. More or less which seems great but seems quick which is good. The other thing i see is whenever things are that nuanced. I want to see the whole ishii be process unfold. Who needs the advisory committee on immunization practices. It's a group of fifteen outside advisers. Doctors nurses public health specialists. Who make recommendations to the cdc on vaccines on cova. Yes but on other things too and the committee has a standard deliberative process. That anyone you were me can log on and watch the encouraging thing and something that got lost in a lot of coverage was that the actual verdon of things that came out yesterday was that they are doing this for planning purposes to start with september twentieth bending authorization from fda and bending the advisory committee on immunization practices review. So i as a scientist. I had weighed for the review because things are that nuanced.

I mean eventually have to exercise but if you just folks enter size you will won't get straight so. Let's talk about ms problem. Because for those who listening you know we earn a staggering health crisis. Not just cova. But the whole pandemic of chronic disease it's driven by poor metabolic health and this phenomenon of being over fat. You can be overweight or fat. Or you're gonna be both i. We're gonna talk about that today. And why it's important to think about for health from gemini for preventing disease and just feeling good and actually even just get our own lives together and managing our appetite and are the tablets lysm and our energy and all the things that affect us so excited about. Listen my favorite topic. Oh yeah mine too mine too and we know we know that where you're fat is in your body makes a huge impact you always worry about pinching an inch right when we were growing up you know. Can you pinch an inch. But now we're realized that that fat that's deep with inside the belly. The visceral depositi that belly fat deep inside the abdomen is really concerning in terms of overall health. And like you mentioned it is. It's a huge issue. You know it is a huge pandemic. it's you know in the in. Just the united states we know that seventy percent of americans are overweight or obese but eighty six percent are over fat meaning. They have too much fat especially that concerning visceral fat is a real concern and over half of our kids also are over fat and so which rating much it's staggering. It's sad it's

Inside Novavax Lab Amid Race To Develop COVID Vaccine
"Mellon nbc. News exclusive inside a company developing another covid vaccine. It hopes will be a global game changer with more on that katie beck developing vaccines is an uphill race. One that novak. Ceo stanley erc has been running for decades. How close to the finish line do you consider yourself to be at this point But we are close. Maryland-based has been developing. That seems for more than thirty years but has never had one approved and on the market now a possible victory on the horizon as the company mass produces tens of millions of doses of its covid nineteen vaccine confident. It will be authorized for use in the united states. Do believe your product is better than the other ones out there. Are they do all work. And i think everybody should take whatever action that they should offered them promising. Early test results secured novak's a one point six billion dollar contract from operation warp speed to produce one hundred million doses for the us but pre pandemic nova vaccine was sinking suffering setbacks after several failed phase. Three trials we had to to lay off people that it hurts. Everybody's morale when you do that on the verge of collapse in december of two thousand nineteen at times company's stock trading at a dollar. If you've been around it as long as i have you seen a lot of experiments fail but you also see people figure out why and then fiction. The company's recent data from phase three trials of its covid nineteen vaccine show ninety six percent efficacy and against the uk variant eighty. Six percent checks in news was the first crew allowed into this biotech lab in college station. Texas where vaccine production is bustling focus on make as much as to be here at the texas facility. Eighty thousand square feet transform to produce covid vaccine as quickly as possible now. They've added three hundred employees and are making millions of doses inside those bio reactors every month novak's paired with the biotech arm of fuji film to use this space taps by the federal government years ago as an emergency vaccine site in case of a pandemic novak's already fulfilling vaccine with canada and australia and in talks with europe facing critical shortages. Back in maryland nova vaccine is transforming space to fill out this but this year the company grow from one hundred employees to eight hundred. And it's worth fifteen billion dollars. Still there success relies on fda authorization expected to be sought in may the failed experiments that we learned from you know Show if you can learn from them and had the wherewithal you can win erc experience.

Why Tech Companies Are Limiting Police Use of Facial Recognition
"All right emily kwong so. We're talking about this announcement from a string of tech companies that they are going gonna put limits on their facial recognition technology especially when it comes to law enforcement amazon microsoft and ibm yes on june eighth. Ibm said it would discontinue general purpose facial recognition or analysis software altogether. Get out of the business completely and it made an impression after. Ibm's big letter. Amazon announced a one year moratorium on sales of they're very popular software recognition spelled with a k. To law enforcement to give congress time to implement appropriate rules so a one year ban. Yes microsoft took it a step further saying it wouldn't sell products to law enforcement at all until a federal law is in place. Here's microsoft president. Brad smith speaking to the washington post we need to use this moment to pursue a strong national law to govern facial recognition that is grounded in the protection of human rights and for matali in conde who has been pushing for regulation changes in tech for years. This was a big deal when these words were coming out of silicon valley. She felt all of the feelings. My initial was thank god. Thank god i was. I was happy. I was pleased. I was optimistic. I was short of breath. I was exhausted. Tally is the ceo of ai. For the people a fellow at both harvard and stanford universities for her. These announcements shifted the conversation. But that's about it. So i'm pleased. It's got us incredibly far but we're by no means the woods not out of the woods because for all of the advancement and facial recognition systems. Still get it wrong. They'll incorrectly match folks what's called a false positive or fail to associate the same person to two different images of false negative. Yeah and what's vaccine. Is these errors are happening. More often. when the machines are analyzing dark-skinned faces and that can disproportionally affect already marginalized communities prone to unconscious bias at the hands of law enforcement leading to false accusations arrests and much worse so until there's action on this metallic said words just aren't enough gotcha. So let's unpack this a little bit. Let's talk about how biased gets into facial recognition systems in the first place. I'd love that okay. So it starts right with how the systems learn to do their jobs. A process known as machine learning so to make facial recognition systems engineers feed algorithms large amounts of what's called training data in this case. That would be pictures of human faces. Yes the way machines learn is that they repeat task again and again and again and again and again developing a statistical model for what a face is supposed to look like so if you wanted to teach the algorithm to recognize a man you'd put in like millions of pictures of men you got it. The machine will then measure the distance between the eyes on each picture the circumference of the nose for example the ear to measurement and over time the machine starts to be able to predict whether the next image it seeing is quote a man which sounds okay right here comes the but but the machine is only a smart as its training data so remember joy ghulam weenie who i mentioned at the top of the episode. Yeah the the mit yes. So she and her colleague timid gabe developed a way to skin color in these training sets and the two they looked at were overwhelmingly composed of lighter skinned subjects. Seventy nine percent for ibi dash a and eighty six percent. For etienne's these are two common data sets that were largely as joy. Put it pale and male. So basically the training data used to create these algorithms is not diverse. And that's how that bias gets in The diversity of human beings is not always being represented in these training sets and so faces outside the systems norm. sometimes don't get recognized. Here's matala explaining what the research meant to her. That goes back to this other issue of not just hiring but a bigger issue of those no one in the team to say that you haven't put all the faces you haven't put all the digital images of all human beings could look like in the way that they sharpen society in order to recognize these faces. And it's so. After realizing how unbalanced these training sets were joy intimidate decided to create their own with equality in race and gender to get a general idea of how facial ai systems performed with a more diverse population so basically they fed it more diverse pictures to to look at. Yeah it was kind of interesting. They used images from the top ten national parliaments in the world with women in power specific yes specifically picking african and european nations and they tested this new data against three different commercially available systems for classifying gender one made by ibm the second microsoft and the third by face plus plus an running these tests joint him knit found clear discrepancies gender and racial lines with darker skinned faces getting mis classified the most. Here's mut-ali again. So one of the things that joy blue armies amazing work looks. That is the coloration between short hair and gender so many many many black women with afros where mislabeled as men mis gendered because the system had trained itself to recognize short hair as a male trait and this research project mattie produced a massive ripple effect further studies legislation in december the national institute of standards and technology or nist published a big paper of its own testing one hundred eighty nine facial recognition algorithms from around the world and they found biases to looking at one global data set some algorithms in their study produced one hundred times more false positives with african and asian faces compared to eastern european ones and when tested using another data set of mug shots from the us. The highest false positives were found among american indians with higher rates in african american and asian populations again depending on the algorithm. Wow yeah that is not what you want from your data. And i'm guessing white. Men benefited from the highest accuracy rates. Yes they did now. The knicks study did conclude that the most accurate algorithms demonstrated far less demographic bias but for multi. This evidence of bias raises a bigger question about the ethics of relying on. Ai systems to classify and police at all the problem with ai. Systems machine learning is that they're really really really good at standard routine tasks and the issue with humans is that we are not standard. We're not routine. Were actually massively messy right. We're not the same but when a police officer searches face in the system. They're not making arrests based on just spat match alone are they. Oh absolutely not. Yeah it's a tool for identifying potential suspects but if you think about how there's already implicit bias in policing critics. A facial recognition are basically saying. It doesn't make sense to embrace technologies riddled with bias to right if all this research has shown. These tools are capable of misidentifying black people. We cannot use biometric tools that discriminate against a group of people who are ready discriminated against within the criminal justice system but policing most specifically mattie. When i first spoke to mut-ali in march she was open to moratoriums on facial. Recognition like amazon is doing buying time for these systems to improve regulations to be put in place but the protests have her views. Because why why am i being moderate with completely reimagined how we interact with technology so now she wants to see facial recognition banned from law enforcement use which some cities in the us have done. Moutallos has tried to push for legislation to outlaw discrimination in technology before but it seems like now people are paying attention and have a language for talking about structural racism that they just didn't have before whether why america listened to me or not. I was gonna continue with this work. I believe that technology should be an empowering force for all people and that's my work but now having old and new ala not just allies but co-conspirators bright. I'm so happy. Because i didn't think would happen in my lifetime and it's an it's
Political storms swirl around California's Newsom amid virus
"I'm Julie Walker poll numbers drop for California's democratic governor as a recall petition started by Republicans before the pandemic continues to circulate a poll released yesterday by the public policy institute of California found just over half of the state's residents fifty four percent approve of how governor Gavin Newsom is handling the job suggesting the recall effort still has an uphill climb but that's down from sixty five percent in may at the height of his approval among Democrats he's dropped from eighty six percent supported may just seventy one percent now about half of the independence support him and just sixteen percent of Republicans approve the poll did not ask about the recall I'm Julie Walker
How to Avoid Becoming a Meal for a Cheetah
"The cheetah is the rarest big cat in africa less than seven thousand adults remain on the planet think of it this way for every cheetah on the planet. There's more than four starbucks. Coffee shops the most important cheetah stronghold is in central namibia but the cheetahs. They're don't live within national parks. They live on privately. Owned farmland. Pharma's having huge problems with cheetahs losing a lot of stuck and there are other farmers who actually didn't have any problem at all ecologists you're melts heimer from the live knits institute for zoo and wildlife research in berlin assumed at first that all farmers had cheetah trouble. It was just that some were more likely to complain about it. But after tracking fifty collared cheetahs he began to suspect that there really was a pattern to their killing by the time his team had data from one hundred six cheetahs colored over the course of a decade. Not only was. He certain that cheetahs were more likely to kill in some places than others but that he could solve the problem. We indeed found. These communication hubs of cheetahs which spread evenly across the landscape with a high activity of cheetahs within the hubs cheetahs. Aren a social species but they still need to trade information. They don't meet physically typically not but they leave marks and prominent lent marks and whether they either use during fees to communicate with each other. Think of it as a coffee shop for cats where animals trade gossip even though these communication hubs only comprise around ten percent of the landscape cheetah. Spend most sometimes all of their time within them. These basically a long-term tradition which is passed on from cheetah generation to cheetah generation Some of these communication hubs basically no-no. Let's say the mocking location. Mocking trees were known by farmers. For sixty seventy years like the grandfather of current farmer already knew the mocking cheese in this area. What the farmers never realized is that only some farms overlap with the cheetahs communication hubs melts. Heimer thought that if those farmers relocated their most vulnerable herds. It could be a huge help. Here remembers the first farmer. He tried to convince and i told him. Look wilfred i have. I have the idea that they are actually there because of these mocking trees. And you happen to have your small shops accepting the same area. Let's try to move your herds out of this area and and keep them somewhere else and then let's measure the losses. And he was laughing at me said i can nice idea but i'm not sure whether it's going to work. They would probably follow the cast so we tried this. Actually it worked and he. He earned much money because he lost less cavs. After that thirty-five more farmers agreed to try it out in all the number of calves to cheat. Predation fell by a whopping eighty six percent. Of course some cattle outside of communication hubs were still lost. The cheetah's but it was at a low enough level that most farmers seem to tolerate it. What this means is that. Cheetahs aren't actively following the cattle. They simply take advantage of whatever food is available nearby. If it's not cattle then they go after. Wild ungulates springbok orix or coup. There are no so called problem. Cheetahs who intentionally seek out cattle instead there are problem areas. That's a much easier problem to solve. And it's one that doesn't result in farmers killing cheetahs melts. Heimer is now hard at work collecting tracking data from cheetahs in other parts of africa to see whether his findings hold up in other ecosystems so often it seems as if the goals of wildlife conservation are incompatible with the goals of commerce but this story reveals that infect biodiversity and agriculture can coexist allocates is really one of these nice example which can go hand in
How Quibi crashed and burned so quickly
"So equity was always the odd duck all the new streaming services that immersive last year for just for listeners who don't stand top of the streaming rewards just give quick description of what could be is and what's happened to it. Quimby was a mobile initially mobile only than kind of transition to be mobile centric streaming video service. That made cereal like tv. In very short episodes everything was like ten minutes or last and it was very very expensive programming. They made big budget programming with really big stars. So it's pitch was that it was kind of like a curated. Youtube only with like the biggest and brightest of hollywood involved. The problem is they launched the service that was designed to be watched. Moberly on the go in those like brief much of your day where you have a spare ten minutes to watch something getting coffee. Waiting for us. Launched it at the beginning of all the lockdowns keeping people trapped in their homes so they had a mobile on the ghost service launching when nobody was mobile or on the go. That's one of the problems with but there's underlying consideration that. The premise of the service given that people already have youtube and they can watch other things on the go to netflix on the go on their mobile phones that the premise of this being a service at all was flawed from the beginning. So what's happened. At least as far as we know right now is that would be instead of trying to survive after six months is going to just shut down. We don't know exactly win but at some point the service is going to go dark and this programming is going to. I don't exactly know what's going to happen. So all this stuff that they made. Yeah i wanna get into that but it just. It's interesting just sort of looking at the background of their the foundation that this company was built on one point. Seven billion dollars in funding of meg. Whitman from hewlett packard. Lots of a-list talent But medina think looking back at this now it was was the model just fundamentally or was it just a matter. Bedtime may and launching in the middle of a pandemic. i remember maybe even before they had a name. I believe they katzenberg jeffrey katzenberg. The hollywood Whitman as you mentioned the ceo of the service they went to south by and they had this whole presentation. And i remember coming out of this presentation being like these people have no idea what they're getting into you know. They had really really ambitious goals. They talked a really big game but they're getting into something. That is really hard to break into going up against something like youtube. Which has two billion people watching it every month. So that's one way to kind of put in perspective whether or not the pandemic was the real. You know silver bullet that killed qube but also mentioned that i did. I did a poll on twitter. Asking people this exact question because they make whitman. Jeffrey kassenberg worth open letter. The apologized for disappointing. Their investors their workers their talent and they said in there. You know it we may never know what was the problem here was timing or was this a bad idea to begin with and so i had a poll on twitter quoting that portion of the letter and saying well which was it could be equals a bad idea or timing and i think eighty six percent of people could be was just a bad idea to begin with so
Farming like Indigenous people did could bolster Hawaiis food supply
"Hawaii imports more than eighty five percent of its food. So extreme weather disrupt shipping. It could have serious consequences for the state. You just kinda grow up knowing that we only have like a week of food on the shelves and if the barge doesn't come wearing in big trouble that's natalie courage shema while a phd student. At the university of hawaii. She studied whether indigenous farming methods could help reduce this food insecurity especially as the climate changes. I always wondering how can we learn from our iki. Kupuna extra knowledge to address of i-it's sustainability issues. Today she says before colonization indigenous farmers grew crops in areas. That people today would not they. Farmed terraced land that had to be flooded during cultivation and grew roof. Ish ables under banana and coconut trees. Those methods were productive. She studies suggest that they could have produced enough food for eighty six percent of hawaii's current population. So if implemented today indigenous farming methods could make hawaii's food system more resilient to extreme weather and help the state sustain itself in the future as it did in the past.
FDA panel meeting could lead to Pfizer vaccine emergency use OK
"By the end of the day then on friday and sunday another committee. This time from the cdc will meet to officially determine who gets the first doses fingers crossed that they choose me. Because i sent them my resume. I'm good candidate. Yeah we reviewed all the qualifications ahead of time and they were spotless. As we've been saying this is all happening at very critical time. Just yesterday the united states hit another single day record for coronavirus deaths. It is very very bleak out there regarding the pfizer vaccine. There was some news yesterday about potential issues. Yeah that's right so in the uk there now. Recommending that people prone to severe reactions shouldn't get the vaccine for now. The regulators are investigating a couple instances of allergic reactions and people who got the vaccine on tuesday and there hasn't been a ton of information on exactly what kinds of allergic reactions may be red flags. So tb there but canada approved the visor vaccine yesterday. So if there's more information on the safety of it and people with allergies forthcoming in a conversation with sanjay gupta on cnn. Yesterday dr fauci that this complication may affect a large amount of people. It went on to say quote. If i were a person that had an underlying allergic tendency. I might want to be prepared. That i might get a reaction and therefore be ready to treat it. So i guess. Have some benadryl or your epi pen on deck. That's where we're at but to end on a hopeful note found. She did say that the other vaccines may be able to account for this rarest sort of side effect that is great to hear and then on that note. What is the latest on other vaccines all right next week. The moderna vaccine will undergo the same fda review process as the pfizer vaccine and the united arab emirates approved vaccine out of china. Yesterday that vaccine is said to be eighty six percent effective and could be much more affordable route for smaller countries versus one shipped out from america. The details around the vaccine beyond that are kind of murky. Though chinese officials and a farm the state owned maker of the vaccine or silent yesterday. Don't want heard anything from them. In science noted that the announcement was lacking data and other critical details

UK and Germany's different approaches to the pandemic
"The UK and Germany are both leading democracies and not far apart on the globe. They took very different approaches to the pandemic with very different results the UK as suffered the most covid nineteen deaths in Europe Germany with a much bigger population has lost far fewer people. NPR's correspondent in each country rob Schmitz in Berlin and Frank Langfitt in London had been talking among themselves. Hey Rob Frank. So tell me what happened in the UK. were. So many mistakes a big reason is the government honestly doesn't really seem to think ahead Boris Johnson you remember he sold Brexit to the British people in two thousand sixteen with no plan on how to execute it. So in the virus began spreading here Johnson course he's now prime minister. He was slow to recognize the threat here he is on March Third I was at movie night. where I think the rush if you credit ours patience and I shook hands of everybody. So by April Johnson an icy ICU covid nineteen I was talking to you in Boyd he's a member of the scientific group that advises the government. The UK didn't really grasped the speed with which the epidemic was entering the country under are all sorts of reasons for that, some of which are to. Lack of organisational capability sometimes when there's very high uncertainty, you simply have to shut things down really quickly and frank here in. Germany. That's what they did on January twenty seven. The first known case of coronavirus was sent to Clemson ventner chief physician at the Munich Schwab in clinic we have very similar like the boys gall. Be always prepare. Then you're watched what was happening in Italy in January where the virus was spreading pretty fast and we knew that we have to flatten the curve. So even before the first case of Covid nineteen and Germany, he was working on slowing its progress and he says the German government was involved from day one asking us what do you need we? We? We didn't have to ask them for example, Germany already had a big supply of ICU beds clouds Deutsche is at the Federation of German. You know that it's been a long debate on whether we had too many intensive care beds that warned us that often obviously that debate is over Deutsche says, Germany also has a lot of hospitals. If you take all the beds in all of Germany's hospitals, you get four times more per capita than what the UK has rob. You had slack in your system in Germany there. Was Not much here because the government had been cutting funding to the National Health Service for years, the hospitals were afraid of getting swamped with Cova patients. So they sent elderly patients back to nursing homes some broad cove with them infected other residents at least twenty, thousand nursing home residents died of covid. That's terrible in while in Germany, deaths were prevented through testing and contact tracing. The health authority in Berlin district of Hong, Kong and operator talks to man at conduct with a positive case, there are around four hundred call centers like this across Germany Peters directs this one become Austin We have traffic wardens and librarians working for us. We've recruited gardeners from parks and recreation Germany had a lot of manpower and testing to infrastructure filled with labs and university medical centers across the country. You know here the government misread the corona virus they thought it was going to spread as quickly as the flu. They didn't even try to develop a testing system where we steward he's a former British cabinet minister they were very, very confident. And slightly arrogant neb beliefs that they understood this disease better than other countries, I think the lack of scientific education amongst a lot of the British political elite meant that they were very reluctant to challenge scientists but here, Germany. Frank. A trained scientist is at the helm and Chancellor Angela Merkel. gave one of the most powerful and heartfelt speeches in her life when she made a rare national address on March. Eighteenth dusted fees above in then. Comes here. I have absolutely no doubt that we will overcome this crisis. How many victims will it claim? How many loved ones lose to a large extent? The answer lies in our own hands miracle has a doctorate in quantum chemistry, and in another speech, she patiently explain how important it was for Germany to reduce the viruses reproduction rate. Her tone was always humble and deadly serious. I'm. Doing this Icefield is off that. We are thin ice. This is a situation in which caution not over-confidence is the order of the day it really different here Johnson studied classics at Oxford University. He was president the debating society and as Prime Minister he's tried to rally the country with rhetoric. We must act like any wartime government and do whatever it takes to support our economy Johnson's Ori helped win a landslide election last year, but a pandemic, of course, not a campaign. Here's where. We store again he sees himself as somebody who is encouraging a rugby team for nineteen minute match telling them that fantastic to make them play. Well, he doesn't primarily see himself as somebody whose job is to get into uncomfortable details were chew over policy and strategy but frank, it's this chewing over of policy and strategy. This technocratic nature of the German government that may have also contributed to Germany's success hunts could is senior research fellow at Chatham House this sort of doubling down on technocracy. Populism has now been discredited by the Corona Virus. He says, that's potentially dangerous. If technocrats feel too emboldened, there might be an even bigger growth populist backlash in the future some people will blame Johnson for Britain's handling of covid campaigner. He thinks Johnson's more symptoms than 'cause captors just written a book called why the Germans do it better notes from grownup country. We've descended into believing that somehow because we always muddled through in the past muddling through is a recipe that will get us through in the future. So rob where's Germany now with crow verse? Well cases are rising deaths are not that tells us these new cases are from young people, children across the country are back in classrooms, but the German government seems so far. Okay. With the dangers of this, there remains a strong infrastructure of hospital beds, testing, tracing Germany fields, prepared and Chancellor Angela Merkel's popularity ratings are sky high eighty, six percent. WOW cases rising rapidly to we've got new strictures but Johnson actually had trouble explaining them to the nation recently the last surveys Ron Johnson is under forty percent approval rating testing capacity here still can't meet demand.

Mirati to Rival Amgen in Solid Tumors
"So to start I wanNA talk about exact sciences ticker symbol e x a s, and they are now trading at around twelve billion dollar market cap, and what they announced is liquid biopsy testing data in six different cancer types showing a sensitivity of eighty six percent and a specificity of ninety five percent, and they did kind of a grab bag of cancer types. We have lung ovarian, liver pancreatic, and Alpha Jill. And so I did video on exact sciences quite a while ago I thought their evaluation was a little bit toppy back then and was waiting for dipped to buy, and that's what I did during the Cova crisis I took a small position and then I sold just recently at around ninety four and I think is trading just over one hundred dollars right now but this. Is Nice to see them kind of moving into new areas because I think one of the things that they're struggling with is leaning on their old testing kit the colours guard while all these other companies are trying to get into things like liquid biopsy, which it's going to be a real game changer in the space. Once these treatments get validated and approved by the FDA. Now. They're not alone doing this exact sciences is kind of just finally getting into this because other big players like alumina through grail they just acquired this private company called grail officially officially. We've garden health personalisation of been floating around and invitations. Well, who just acquired archer DSL there's a lot of companies in the space, but exact scientists has shown some pretty good success in their previous testing kits. So it just makes sense them to jump into this new area and be a good competitor. So I think right now probably a little bit toppy with the price around one hundred but I'm pretty pleased with the small profit. I made given the number shares that I have. So that's exact sciences. Want to move now into regeneration ticker symbol. And they're trading at a sixty billion dollar market CAP. I did a video on them also a few months ago, looking at kind of their staples in terms of the different products that they offer and I concluded that they were relatively over-valued back. Then I think now also a little bit overvalued, but it does depend on how well their product. So and the kind of revenue they can bring in obviously but the news that we heard is that they released data on their antibody cocktail for covid nineteen. and. What we saw is that it reduced viral loads and symptoms versus placebo in non. Patients who are infected with SARS co to and what they shared our results from initial cohort of two hundred and seventy five patients, and they also have nine hundred or more patients enrolled. So this is kind of a preliminary analysis that they're showing US and they've called it a phase one, two, three trials. So they're doing the PK the safety along with the efficacy and other sorts of secondary outcomes all at once and when I look through their stuff, they started off by kind of categorizing patients based. On Sarah Negative or zero positive and I, think it's important that they do this because we're looking at a treatment for covid nineteen and if people are already sero-positive in their bodies, already mounted an antibody response in order to bring down viral loads. So what regeneration is trying to pose here is that the negative patients which means they have not mount that antibody response have significantly higher viral load and they make a better target for most treatments probably also their antibody cocktail that they're gonNA share data with. So. Then the data that they show here shows a range of efficacy based off of viral load. So we have tended the power of four copies, parallel all the way to tend to the seven copies personnel. So quite a big range in viral load here and I just blew this up on the screen. What we're seeing is that at the higher viral load, the treatment and there two different doses here in the green and the red line, we see that much more dramatic decrease in the amount of viral load in. These patients and it does kind of make sense because if your body's already mounted an antibody response, the window of efficacy is just going to be a bit smaller than if it's before the at which your body's manning response. So I think for these patients, it's definitely positive data. They also looked at other other metrics as well and I'm not going to get into everything but they did look at a day to alleviation of symptoms and they looked at the overall population of patients. It's the difference of nine with Placebo. To between six and eight, depending on the dose that they gave the antibody cocktail with the negative group alone, the placebo was thirteen days and then the low and high dose was six and eight respectively. So obviously a big difference when it comes to whether or not the patient is zero negative or positive. So that's probably going to inform the FDA when it comes to approving the drug or giving some kind of guidance on which patients should take the drug and who are likely to see more positive outcomes from that. So overall. I think it's good. It gets a step ahead of the Gilead data where I don't think we've even seen a placebo group yet. So it's nice to see regenerate actually do this placebo controlled trial. We can see whether or not there is efficacy and I, look forward to seeing the rest of the data I'm not if this merits taking a position regenerate here given that they're such a large company already and they have so many different assets that are I would say more likely to contribute to their bottom line. This doesn't entice me to take a position, but it's nice to see that we're getting all these therapies are starting to see vaccine data, and this just makes me feel better in general that we're going to move towards being able to treat this disease and hopefully get out from under this and then Kinda recover with the economy. With that, let's talk about the main story for today, and that is morality Therapeutics Ticker Symbol M rt ex, and they're trading at a price of one sixty, two point zero five per share giving them a market cap of seven point two, billion dollars. Their Q. Two, twenty, twenty, net loss was eighty, three, million dollars, and this represents an eighty percent increase year over year there their q two net current cash is six, hundred million dollars giving them a runway of about until twenty twenty two I would say but let's also be careful that if they see positive data. This year or next year is a good chance that they're going to raise again. And what Morad is trying to do is develop targeted cancer treatments and they're specifically looking at solid tumors and even more specific than that are K. Rasa inhibitors, and so they have to compounds Marta six, eight, four, nine, and x, one, three, three. They're also looking at checkpoint inhibitor resistance with their compound sicher Vance it, and I'll talk about that in a bit later. To start though we gotta talk about chaos and the reason why this is so important is that chaos mutations are present in a large population of cancer patients. The first thing it's important to note is that chaos is pretty ubiquitous. It's a critical part of the map kinase signaling pathway, and this is very important in basically every single cell. This pathways involved in Cell Proliferation Cell Survival had differentiation here. There's a whole bunch of other stuff and it makes a little bit confusing because it is involved in. So many different pathways that if you were just to inhibit this molecule non specifically, you're likely to see significant side effects with patients. It's for this reason that it's important that we can come up with a targeted therapy that will only target cells that have a mutation in chaos rather than the healthy normal. KS. To talk a little bit more about its function, it works as a GT as and what this means is that it takes a molecule GDP converts it to GDP using that phosphate group to continue the signaling pathway. The next step is Raff or something like that mutations in. A company twenty, one point, six percent of all human cancers, and then I have here that chaos the predominant or exclusive Rask's mutated in three of the top four neoplasms that account for cancer deaths in the US lung colon and pancreatic. Cancer.

Two of the best have been visa and MasterCard, you can look up, how those stocks have done since they went public and people are always asking me, what's the next hot thing. Well, a company by the name of square went public in two thousand and fifteen and square went public. Let's see, I wanna say about ten dollars per share somewhere in there. This was Jack Dorsey of their businesses. First business was Twitter. He is the mastermind the whatever you wanna call it behind the Twitter platform square is a point of sale software that manages receipts inventories sales reports with analytics feedback except for square went public in two thousand fifteen at ten dollars per share today at seventy one dollars and forty six cents per share, and it's been over one hundred dollars along the way. And it's had very consistent sales growth of about forty to fifty percent per year. And if you looked at their last four quarters of earnings growth, plus eighty six percent, plus eighty six percent again, plus seventy five percent and plus eighty three percent. So not only have you had phenomenal sales growth. That square you've also had phenomenal earnings growth. And there's a story out today that squares cash out download growth, outpaces ven MO and of course, then MO is pay pals. Equivalent of square competitor, then MOS year over year growth dramatically slowed while squares came in a hotter than expected rate. I continue to own both of those stocks, then or not then MO but pay pal and spoiler and scores out a nice little bounce recently. It was kind of just I dunno testing its support levels here over the last several months. But all of a sudden squares moving in the right direction. I've seen earnings estimates moving higher for square and the stock following those earnings. Expectations is also been moving higher. It's thirty billion dollar company, currently trading at seventy one dollars and fifty cents and I do own square at Garson capital management. Speaking of Jack Dorsey. See his other company Twitter which has not been scores. Been a much better performer than Twitter has Twitter went public at about eighteen twenty dollars a share today. It's thirty six dollars a share. It has not been a very good performer over the years. Now, they're doing a better job recently of monetize ING Twitter, but it's still not a stock that shows up in my valuation, and momentum screens. And there's a report out today, Moffitt Nathanson, as trimming their price targets. They're becoming more bearish on Twitter. I do not own Twitter stock the stock is down three point eight percent today but I do own door sees other ventures square I went fishing when I first arrived here took a win out with a fishing guide. See, I'm not a guy that's in the water every day. I am in the stock market, but not in the red fish market. Man, he put us on some red fish. You cannot believe in fact, Paul, I've been working on a little painting here. Let's see if I've got it of my son in law holding about a ten pound redfish. See how, yeah we caught about six or seven of those guys. And boy, I'll tell you help to have a fishing. But the point of the story when I was all done fishing. He says a lot of before hundred dollars plus a tip, which I knew of front, I wasn't carrying four hundred but he says, no problems. Just give me your credit card scandal with his iphone. We're out in the water still bang, four fifty plus a healthy tip. You know, I gave him a dollar tip. You know, uh Scandinavians.

Is there a day that goes by that there's not bad news on Facebook? I'm starting to wonder about my hey the stock is up today. It is. It's a bad chart, and it's an excellent value and their earnings have been growing by seventy two percent per year. But it just seems like Zuckerberg can't avoid bad news now Facebook they've uncovered emails seem to connect CEO's occur Burke to a knowledge of questionable privacy practices. This could present a new public relations that snafu for a company that's endured a long string of them. Yeah. Boy, howdy. I watched a lot of them. I haven't took a long break from Facebook hoping they could get their act back together. I currently do on Facebook. But now they're saying that Zuckerberg is back at it again, or he was volved in a cover up something going on there. And the stock is having a very good day. However, it's one point two percent. I think at the end of the day, it goes back to earnings earnings are expected to go up thirty two percent this year, Facebook and over the last five years earnings of seventy two percent per year. So it just seems like it's a necessary evil, but they're tech crunch is leaving the Facebook used a now defunct app together, personal and sensitive device data on about one hundred eighty seven thousand users, the bulk of those users were in India. That information, which Clinton include their web browsing history. They're encrypted messages and mobile activity came via Facebook research app, which was banned from the app store earlier this year. So tell you what they just can't to void bad press over there at Facebook. There was a big IPO yesterday. I kept my I on this one crowd strike, and I added it to the app this morning. Now it takes about three months of trading activity before we can get a ranking on the stock. It looks like it's not one that will be will do a valuation on because as of now there aren't any earnings estimates there, aren't there, isn't any analyst. Following. But there will be once that quiet period ends, I'm looking at their sales growth over the last four years, or four quarters sales up seventy seven percent hundred nine percent hundred forty nine one hundred eight so I have earmarked this one to keep my I on it. See our WD. Here's the impressive part about this stock. It's already a thirteen billion dollar company. All right. So this is not a startup. It is a security software company out of Sunnyvale, California already thirteen billion dollars market cap. It had a big debut yesterday. At forty dollars. A share today at sixty three dollars a share this is one definitely keep your eye on crowd strike. It was up eighty seven percent yesterday on the IPO. Well, there's a couple of debt offerings.

"So in effect, we're talking here about a sort of institutional hypocrisy where we're willing to support a policy that we always thought we were against for the sake of having our team win. There was a pew study people were asked whether they approved background checks for gun purchases at a federal level. Eighty six percent of Republicans agreed that this would be a good policy to have in place. And then they were asked whether they believed that the government should pass a Bill enacting background checks at a federal level. And once it was phrased that way only fifty something percent of Republicans. Agreed that Bill should be passed. This is largely because we've started to think about legislation as winning and losing for one party or the other. And so these people who believed that the legislation would be good for the country as a whole also believed that it would be bad for their party to enact this legislation. And so there's sort of a disconnect between what's good for the country, and what's good for the party. And in those scenarios, there are substantial number of people who will choose the party's victory over what they think is best for the nation as a whole, you know, it's one thing to be upset when you're losing.

Basically we got ally classic today. We got ally from two thousand ten, two thousand eleven two thousand twelve five, seven step drops. If there happens to be a Rauscher just kinda sidestepping a little bit. Do that weird awkward goo. Goofy, ally manning flow in the pocket thing that he does, which kind of still looks like a baby horse on ice skates and throw the ball down the field. Give your playmakers a chance to make a play, and you know what? It might come up in an interception, but you do it anyway. I think the best case for that that ally classic is the did have those two interceptions that just made you think like, what are you doing? But that's okay. When you when you're taking shots into shots are working and when they ran the bowl, like they didn't do you have to do that sort of thing? Yeah, that's another thing that I've I think we can get into in little bit. It's it's a good thing. The passing game was was working and it really was Beckham had fourteen targets. That's that's good. You should be throwing to Odell Beckham all the time. Sterling Shepard was second on the team with seven target. Hits. That's that's a fine split. I'm okay with that on Beckham's fourteen targets eight receptions one hundred thirty one yards and the touchdown. He he was close to that second touchdown that it was in the end zone. It was maybe a widow under thrown James. Bradbury made a great play on it. Yeah. If you're looking at that play, please do not call it a Beckham drop. It was not. That was a great play by Bradbury to get his arm in there and ripped up all out. And I'm not going to ding Eli on the throw either because like he had to drop it over a defender who is underneath and that's a tricky window to hit those. Just a great play by the defender, they make them sometimes. Yeah, they do, especially bradberry a, we talked about him on the previous show. He's he's good. And even on the on the actual touchdown cash, the one Beckham did catch bradberry was right there again. Yeah, that. It was just a phenomenal throw in a phenomenal catch. Yeah. So I think we see when when they do take some shots down field, it's going to work and it looks like early in the game that might not be the case. And it was kind of a case of if you need something done, right. You do it yourself because dill Beckham had a fifty seven yard pass to saquon Barkley in this game for the giants first touchdown. And I think we sometimes see wide receivers making throws and they're kind of wide open to have a lot of space. This was a it throw from Odell Beckham all the way across the field. He had a guy in his face like this was a good throw. Yeah, what twenty four twenty five air yards. But throwing from the left side line all the way over to the right sideline and he hit Berkeley in the hands. That one point I was ready to pretty much just cut ally and play Odell Barclay and Goldman in the. Backfield all the time. They just take turns either handing offer throwing to each other. Yeah, runs run some type of option..
