People Have Deep Convictions About Their Bodies When It Comes to Vaccines
"People have a deep conviction that is their body. And you're not going to tell them what to put in it and it's shelly argue with them. It's it's fruitless to try to change their mind now we could get into it. I mean we could go down for example. Now there's merck apparently going to have a therapeutic that they've introduced that might be very effective with kelvin. Shortly we've been defending ivermectin and hydroxy clarkson with zinc. I'll betcha the same people who resist the vaccine would probably be willing to take ivermectin or hydroxy chloroquine with zinc if they were hospitalized with covert contradiction. Of course it is. They'd be willing to take it off label brand or an off label prescription to try to treat it because i don't know conservative world. We've all sort of embraced therapeutics because it matters but again that's logic that they don't wanna hear right now. I don't wanna take the vaccine. Trust what it's that they don't want to be forced to take it and nothing is going to change their mind. We're not gonna get much more of a percentage of vaccinated americans we're never gonna get to eighty ninety percent. We're not going to get to that. So-called elusive herd mentality or or i mean herd immunity. We're not going to get there. Because people are not gonna let the government tell them what to inject into their
Manchin and Sinema meet with Biden over reconciliation bill concerns
"Tuesday was the day became clear. That either a president joe biden's legislative agendas about implode or be didn't make serious progress toward a deal to salvage his agenda. The public evidence points to option. Hey implosion by the end of the day. There was no indication. Democrats were near a deal. That would allow to pass the house on thursday but the real action was shrouded in secrecy. Talks between biden. joe manchin and kirstin cinema. So you can't rule out option b. Let's look at the case for implosion maintenance said after returning from the white house quote. There was no commitments. Made it all on. The report from cinema world was that she continued to be elusive during a private meeting with the president. She made clear that she's still not on board with the party's three point. Five trillion dollar social spending plan and is hesitant to engage on. Some specifics until the bipartisan infrastructure. Package passes the house. Now let's look at the case for option b. progress after weeks a little clarity. The white house and mansion and cinema are discussing which programs in the bill back. Better package the senator support. It's worth noting that is often the case the major legislative deals look like they're on the verge of total collapse before they come together perhaps taken what they big grain of salt but the white house insisted that teased. look like a giant setback.

The Mysteries of Detection Engineering: Revealed!
"Is a fun episode today because we are talking about the discipline of detection engineering. Which i think i can summarize and give away a joke from the show as putting a pm in your sock. What do you think about that. Anton is that a fair summary. Actually yes but. I still think that there is a lot more to this. And frankly the whole bryn engineering discipline to the detection. Space has been a lot harder than people think because we do see a lot of people who are in deductions as opposed to engineering them. No they are talented craftsman. But they're not engineers maybe their titles in the saul communes to security craftsman Because they're really good they make detections but can they scale. What about the notorious busted. What if they hit by a bus. Does your soul go kaput. Like what happens so to me. The engineering part is the elusive difficult. Part of building detections that well get improved that scale if catch attackers unit to catch. Don't waste time to me. There's a lot more engineering needed. And i don't feel like many organizations actually have engineering in their security engineering. I think that's a really reasonable point. One of the things. I've gotten feedback on in. The past is avoiding the appearance of artisanal rules. We don't wanna be in a world where it requires ten thousand hours of expertise to craft role. You need to build to churn out high quality rules that consider the user at the end of the day. Well you sell ruled for money. Sort of your product vendors but if i am in my own salk and building my own custom rules i think the logic is somewhat applicable. But it's less critical. I agree you can be successful. But then you have a lot of fragile elements because of your approach to detection. If you are a detection craftsman you may be successful but the whole thing the whole system again. Another tip from the podcast that you'd listening in a few minutes is that the whole system approaches critical. I think that's absolutely right.

"Can decide to devote a good portion of their lands to the some form of climate adaptation and people get engaged in that way. Skylines has been supporting whether it's four service or the park service in respiration mitigation other such things. That's just not how it happens here. A lot of effort in mexico has been focused on trying to connect with ranchers landowners to somehow provide information that they can use in technical expertise. They can use to improve. Their cattle husbandry practices in their land stewardship practices to face increased droughts increasing increases in temperature etc in a way that benefits both the ranching operation and wildlife. This approaches is definitely different. There are of course other things that have been done. Historically different mexican. The united states a notable example is fire management and the as a result of climate change. The united states has seen some really catastrophic fires in recent times which are also the result of longstanding policy of of fighting every single fire. Mexico never quite approached wildfire in the same manner so the fire dynamics that naturally occurred on landscapes that are very similar. Were allowed to kerr made so there. We don't have many places the the massive buildup of fuel that that the us hasn't so adapting to drought and increased. Potential for fire is is probably not as difficult. I would say as Proving to be united states. Do you have a favorite spot. In the sky island region that would probably be the northern jaguar reserve. I have i was like i mentioned very much. Involved in the establishment of that reserve fifteen years ago and its management for a number of years. I no longer am but never faces there. That are so so remote and feel so wild at you. Walk around you sitting next to a clear pool of water and it feels like no. Jaguar could just walk by not even notice you acid goes on. Its way that would be. That would be the place i pick. Gosh it'd be just the coolest Name of a place to work possible. Jaguar reserve now and just to have that in the title. That would be pretty amazing. Well one carlos it's been up treat chatting with you and learning about what's going on the mexico side of the border with with the alliance is doing what what you're doing and thanks for coming on thank you doug and thanks for your just in the sky islands of your your love okay. We're back in. I am back with louise. And we had that field trip. And i've talked to other people that are part of the alliance and doing some really cool work. It's been such an awesome journey. Just learning what you guys are up to but just really quickly what stood out for you on that field trip. We did yeah so it was wonderful to to be standing in this. But we like to call the path of the jaguar down there this important corridor for wildlife and see that it's still part of it is still open for wildlife to move back and forth across the us mexico border that lifts my heart seeing on the ground and it's been unimportant. Focus of our work for the last year we also saw the impacts of the drought for sure so we visited a spring that we've been seeing water out for over a year. Now that's gone dry on. We're seeing a lot of stress in the oak trees turning brown and the habitat just looking very stressed from the drought. So that's a tough to see and definitely concerning and an important part of what will be focusing on to try and help ecosystems adapt in the coming years. Okay so the things that we did on that field trip we're going to. I wanted to a little bit about climate adaptation as an organization you had mentioned earlier in the episode about climate. Change being such an important driver and when you think about even what we did with the border wall or the springs how climate change is playing into that induce e. Even the work that you're doing on the border wall is being adaptation work. And i would argue that the the wall was put up because people seem to think that migration from other countries is a big problem. And you need to put up this wall. And there's talk of kind of change could drive even more migrations. You see that as part of your organization is your adaptations even when it comes to issues like the border wall naso. Climate change adaptation is important to us in a big part of our conversation in our conservation investments. Because we certainly understand that. There's gonna be.

I could get back being gauged in knowledgeable about what's happening in this whole southeastern arizona into mexico will on that no. What's it like working on a board where there's representation from two countries. I love that. I just love it i find. The perspectives. are really interesting. I learn about the way that the mexican government and the national nonprofits in people involved in environmental issues. How they are. You know. Some of their constraints in some of their concerns their resources. I learned things all the time. And you know nature doesn't stop at the border. These landscapes are brought in this particular landscape is so unique that the sky islands there many many habitats down from the desert and few intermittent streams in the lowlands all the way up into the high forest that stretches that bit of geography stretches into mexico. You can't cut it off at work. It's wonderful to be with other people that are that are working at it at mexican perspective. So that's that's been really great so for the past year even as board members the challenge of conducting board business with cova has been a challenge. But what are you looking forward to in the year ahead. Well that's kind of interesting. I think in some ways been easier to connect with my mexican counterparts on the board during cova. Because we're all on zoom and that has actually created this sort of feeling of everybody really being in the room on an equal basis rather than people the united states being in one board grim and the people participating mexico big on camera where all the same space and that's actually been a an equalizer some ways and easier to communicate across the border. I hope we continue that at least for some of our engagement on board. You have a favorite spot in the sky island region. Oh very good. We'll of course creek is near and dear to my heart really is spent so many hours down net creek. I'm really intrigued by this border photo project and i would really like to visit more of the photo locations along. The border is a very impressive again. Data heavy piece of work. They're really collecting information. Not just the key spots that we normally look for wildlife but in between those spots because it's on a grid basis excellent. Okay claire this has been a treat talking with you and thanks for coming on. Thanks for serving on the board. Plus thank you so much. Thanks for having me. It's been really fun.

Doug how's going today going great so let's learn a little bit about the work that's doing with the the alliance. How long have you been volunteering with. The sky alliance. Well i think. I remember certainly correctly went to a meet and greet part of the head in the fall of twenty nine eighteen and actually at that time i met some of the staff and adopted wildlife cameras so questions sometime around the october november. Twenty nineteen okay. So you're still learning a bit about them. That's great speaking of wildlife. What is the volunteer. Work that you do with the border wildlife. Study right now so i guess for history for context i assist. It's game lions in march of two thousand twenty right before the pandemic blew up with installing multiple blocks of cameras within the study area and then there was some initial fine tuning of cameras and then eventually rolled into maintenance mode so right now i support the bart wildlife study in maintenance mode of servicing cameras about every six weeks changing st cards checking.

"Some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what's going on at the border. Well one really big one. Is that a lot of people. Think of this area. In as the sonora and chihuahua desert when they think of a desert they think of an empty sandy ecosystem. Without a lot of what's going on here with the beautiful mountains and the rolling grasslands and so lots of folks just can't really visualize the amazing habitat. That's here at the border. The other pieces. I every time i've taken someone down to see the border wall. That has not seen it before. They are stunned. It's really stunning to stand next to fifteen or thirty feet of steel columns and really understand how it's segmenting the continent with this wall. So folks they hear fence they hear these different things and they don't realize the enormity of the structure and the roads the big roads that are built next to it in the lighting. And all of that. That's here at the border. So emily here. We are literally about one hundred yards from the border. You see part of the fence here but were surrounded by this big giant open area that is absolutely cleared. Its dirt what went on here. This is the massive construction staging area that was created when south west valley. Constructors started the wall building. Contract and behind me is a massive moonscape. It's four hundred fifty feet across and it's been cleared of the oak woodland so they're grassland the gavee. The trees have been removed and for the last nine months until just recently. It's been the staging area where there were tanker trucks filled with water bulldozers pile drivers the security for the border construction company was parked. Here was a massive. Construction site is really noisy. Basically we would probably still see all that if there was a change administration but there's just been a pivot and so they're not here anymore.

I'm excited to welcome you on and tell the story of this guy alliance so let's just jump right into it. What is the sky island alliance. We are a conservation organization working in southeastern arizona in northern mexico. In what's known as the sky island region a to protect the diversity of life in lands. Here how old is the organization. So we're celebrating our thirty year anniversary this year. Wow exciting i should know this but wow so any plans for the anniversary. Yes so later. This year in the fall will be doing a little bit of a tour of the sky islands and visiting some sites where we've worked in the past to share the kind of work for doing and importantly will be working to build a vision for the next thirty years so talking about our work going forward and engaging communities for revisiting in the sky islands in that vision. Okay so you had mentioned working in mexico. But i wanna prompt you and unique about your staff and your board as a conservation group. The skyline region as i mentioned is in arizona into new mexico. So we're working in this region that spanning the us mexico border and in order to do that we've got staff and board better by national so we've got staff member from mexico leading our work in mexico and board members from mexico. Well helping us lead our strategy in approach for the entire organization. We're gonna talk about the uniqueness of sky islands and just some that other conversations that were having but what really is a sky island if you can help my listeners. Visualize what it really means. When you think of you'd think of just these chains of mountain ranges but what is a sky island right so sky. Island is a forested That's rising up out of desert and grassland sees as we like to describe it so there are these isolated mountains. There's about fifty five of them scattered in this region where we're working and up on top is pain and conifer forest like you would think of seeing in the rocky mountains and then down in the lowlands entered meaning valleys is sonoran desert habitat allowing desert habitat. So there's this amazing diversity of life moving from the valleys up into the mountains and this really neat dynamic with these isolated mountains that each have their own characteristics. I'm actually looking out my window. Straight up at the catalina mountains. You know one of the sky islands. It's really cool. You just described the vegetation that you can go from top to the bottom but they described that if you drive up the catalina highway all the way to the summit at mount lemmon. It's the equivalent of driving from where from mexico all the way to canada in basically forty minutes or so you get to pass through all these different ecosystems like the sonoran desert and sort of mid elevation pine oak woodland and all the way up into the pine trees doug for conifer habitat up at the top of the mountain. Rising to eight thousand feet and our tallest skyline actually gets up to ten thousand feet so some really high elevation forested habitat up at the top of these mountains. I have done that drive many times in a truly is remarkable that you do start in the desert and you end up in its cooler. And you have like you said the conifers. It's truly an amazing experience to do it. Yeah it's pretty gorgeous. And this dynamic of all these different types of habitats packed together in in these mountain ranges creates an amazing amount of diversity in life here in the region which makes it really special okay. So you're not going to be able to list everything but that's a prompt. What are some of the unique species of wildlife and you think of even the plants so the sky millions. Are we like to call them a continental crossroads there. They're sitting at this special place where the rocky mountains. The sierra madre the sonoran desert in the chihuahua desert are all coming together and overlapping and mixing. And so what that means is that we get species like black bear living alongside tropical species like jaguar and another great example is the elegant tro gone very tropical looking bird that's just at its northern range share in the sky islands. The weight knows karate is another one that we think of people think of as more tropical species that's here in the sky islands and it's really just amazing. There's species of.

So you're gonna have to set the scene for me so like you are in the room watching your guy have sex with another woman. I have not had any in person experiences.

We had some technical difficulties in the middle of it. So part of Of it was on snapchat So mike had several complications about halfway or so but it stop unite. It didn't stop. It didn't mess up the energy of it because they just outlaid into the degradation aspect because it was all on my hand for the most part gave them something to go off of with owed. So you're too fucking stupid even figure out how to get this to work okay. I guess we're you know you're not that worried about it. So i moved hunger just feeding off of that energy also new.

We've all heard of abm. We did that in hearsay. Abm didn't help us with bob. Abm actually made bob madder because every time we try to nurture him with thought leadership or up sell him on a new product. He was reminded that we were working on things other than the thing that he asked for three years ago. So if we take a step back right first let's talk about what kinds of support cases usually get resolved. I throw the quick and easy ones. The ones that you're tier one support agents can do first call resolution. Everyone's happy restart device reset your password. Reauthenticate burlington account then.

That has been running for a couple of years now and they set out to show that one. Bitcoin could be used day-to-day as well as it could be used as a long term investing saving technology and to that bitcoin wasn't just for rich people in fact the poorest of the poor could often find even more empowerment in it than the rich that normally associated with their website states. We believe that if a local economy is created with the support of bitcoin new opportunities will open up for the community members.

"Halima condie in nairobi. Imagine having a handy guide to the united states as a new immigrant. One that tells you how to navigate this strange new place and one that also includes the sights and smells that you'd most miss from back home iranian american writer roy hawkins scripted. This out. Her book is called a beginner's guide to america for the immigrants and the curious. My colleague marco werman spoke with her hocken was at her home in connecticut. Here's marco so i gotta say some of the small details you've observed about the immigrant experience. I actually connect with myself. I notice for example. The bounty in this country when i returned from working in west africa for three years like just the variety and options of breakfast cereal in the supermarket aisle. So i'm wondering what are some of the things that still stop you in your tracks since you arrived in the us some thirty five years ago. What you just pointed out that you know we. Sometimes in america become unaware of diversity that exists not just in our media in our options of reading books publications but also you foods in supermarkets and aisles and aisles of cereal and biscuits and breakfast foods and you know it's easy to be turned off by all of it and say you know americans just have too much but what i try to do at have done in in the past couple of decades thinking through what america means to me is to kind of extract. What all that really means beyond variety. And what i've come to is that it's all about choice. America gives us choices. America enables us to look at what's available and make our own decisions for. That's the positive side. It's about choice I think so because alternatively if we didn't live in a democratic country and you know that was my life once we would not have the choice. The choice was would be imposed on us. You know the varieties would diminish greatly in the numbers and we would have it in some ways. It a bizarre way easier because we would not have the burden of considering a balancing and making a conscious decision of our own for which we will have to bear responsibility so for what it was like In one thousand nine hundred five when you emigrated you're much younger from iran and to now be in this place that was both perplexing and at the same time place that provided safety and Something new that i encounter with america is such a ubiquitous experience. No matter how long passes or has passed between my own arrival and others who have arrived more recently seem to share that experiencing common. I remember being completely disoriented as if my jet lag wasn't just a matter of time difference but was also a matter of continental difference emotional difference intellectual difference and i think i was walking around perfectly disoriented and dizzy for weeks weeks which is what Others who have arrived far more recently than i affirm and say that their experiences in the same. What about the flip side were. There are a couple of things in america where he said That makes total sense. Do you recall the first time. Maybe you had that experience completely. I recall being in the first year of college which came a few months after i had arrived. A boy asked me out and we we were on the beach walking and for a moment he put his hand on my shoulder and at first i panicked because i thought oh. We're going to get arrested because we're not migrate walking together and we're not related. But then i looked at him. And i looked at the beach. I realized that. I'm not where i used to be in america and and that was liberating. It was a wonderful new discovery about being out and about without anxiety. Speaking with poet and writer royal cocky and who writes about the immigrant experience in the us when you left iran in nineteen five The country is going through a lot of change. Do you ever compare the lives of your family. Members today in the us versus frenzy left behind. Iran i do and it's a painful reminder of what an accident are birds and our circumstances lead our lives to become that in other words i simply by being able to leave iran under completely accidental circumstances. Because you know had we applied for our exit visas a couple of months earlier or a couple of months later we may never have received them. You know the idea of this book came to me in two thousand sixteen. When trump gave some of his early speeches about his plans for immigration and one of the ideas in one of the speeches was we cannot accept or we should not accept immigrants. Who don't speak english or have no skills into this country. And i gasped hearing this because i thought oh my god had i been the royal. The person that i was this year trying to get into. I would not have gotten so Because i had neither english nor any skills. So i would have stayed. I would have been kept out of the country that now. I believe to be my home. So what i'm trying to say. Is that the injustice of it. All whether you know barred by circumstances inside on or far potentially by the decision of an american president My life could have been entirely a something different from what it is today. I want to mention also roy. A you're you're an activist. And i know you've taken an interest in the rise of vocal feminism in your native iran is specifically iran's kind of metoo moment So as he speak about what immigrants to the us Experience wondering what women especially might be seeing and learning from the movements in iran and the us right now. I hope what they're learning. Is that first and foremost. Feminism is not a local phenomenon that it is a destiny for all women everywhere around the globe that we are all as women as world citizens are in this fight together And there's a sisterhood. That binds us all together. And if we do not support us if we do not support each other and don't win our battles are struggles against gender inequality all of us at the end suffer writer and poet roya cocky and is the author of the book beginner's guide to america for the immigrant. And the curious. Roy a great meeting. You thank you for your time thank you. I enjoyed it. And here's where we say goodbye for the day but we're always online at the world's dot org the world comes to you from the non and bill harris studio in boston. I'm carol hills back with you again tomorrow..

"Shouldn't the us help it's la. I'm not saying that the us shouldn't provide assistance to its allies. But i will say that the us should be better at monitoring the use of us security assistant so that isn't used for gross violations of human rights. Israeli military power also helps keep iran in check. Isn't the us interest. Israel be well armed and edit is it is well armed as i said. They are a leading expert or now of weapons. And that's not. The question is not whether or not the. Us should be providing security assistance to israel. It's whether or not israel is entitled to use it anyway wants including to further its de facto annexation of palestinian territory. Zaha hasson is with the carnegie endowment for international peace. she was talking about transfers of american weapons to israel. Zaha thank you very much. Thank you and just a note. We reached out to the us state department for comment and a spokesperson wrote. And this is a quote. We are restricted under federal law and regulation from publicly commenting on or confirming details of licensing activity related direct commercial sales of export control. Defense articles our services. We remain deeply concerned about the current violence and are working towards achieving a sustainable. Calm in taiwan. There's a gun control debate playing out. That's not that unusual in itself but taiwan is a country with hardly any guns. The government there has extremely strict laws on firearms on. No one is allowed to own them except for one type of citizen and as the world's patrick wind reports this group is increasingly frustrated with the government. Telling them how to live. It's late at night. And a man is creeping through the mountains of taiwan pursuing. His target to is appear in the dark. The man raises his rifle and shoots and a small deer falls to the ground. This is from a news documentary. Channel called t show in taiwan. Where just hunting deer something. Ten million americans do. Every year is edgy television. The even blurred the hunters face. He wasn't doing anything illegal. But using the gun is taboo. In taiwan. Unless you're from certain communities in the mountains not many unease go into the divorce or Indigenous people ago professor curtis pay a well known. Wildlife conservationist in taiwan. he's also a bridge between the majority. Han chinese and indigenous peoples who comprise only two percent of the population and pay is the first to say it. Most people in taiwan don't understand how important hunting is to indigenous communities the majority of the taiwanese the they don't know what what the hunting and afraid of firearm so afraid that the government will only allow indigenous people to use extremely archaic guns muzzle loading rifles. The same kind used in the us revolutionary war hunters mostly use. These guns to shoot deer called moon. Jack which are about as big as a great dane professor pay says they also hunt other animals while board moncton gold and monkey the macaques i asked him are any of these creatures rare on though they are not in danger and none of the species. I mentioned. Endangered taiwan's indigenous. People have seen outsiders book traders and invaders come and go for centuries the portuguese japanese and finally han chinese who fled to the island to escape communism in the nineteen fifties. It was that final group. The chinese who formed a government and said to the native people. Look if you insist on hunting you can only use old fashioned muzzle. Loaders ones that you make in your own backyard. And we all that the homemade. I'm actually not say they're not safe at all. They often jam or misfire and people's hands. Though by issues kalin go things are into that is a report on one of taiwan's indigenous news channels about a tragic misfire a gun. Which injured a hunter. This is a common occurrence up in the mountains so they would prefer to use. Modern weapons rifles that in america. You can buy at walmart. But they can't from their perspective. It's just another way that an occupying people tell.
"elusive" Discussed on PRI's The World
"I'm carol hills. This is the world where a co production of gbh boston and pr x. The top story of the day is the ongoing conflict in israel and gaza. We wanted to zero in on gaza for a few minutes. It's a narrow coastal strip sandwiched between israel and egypt a small enclave packed with some two million people. Israeli air strikes are targeting hamas militants there but because gaza is so densely populated. Ordinary civilians are paying the price. Fresh water is in short supply. Sewage systems have been decimated sending wastewater into the streets and people are scrambling to find shelter and basic necessities. Matias schmila directs the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees in gaza. He joins us from gaza city. Matias what has today been like for you and those you work with for me this like war since a few days want i mean by that is there is a constant firing of rockets from here followed by severe retaliatory strikes. People are terrified at least once an hour. Every second hour there is military confrontation that affects concentration. And what we do. That's one bit and we own nra are increasingly dealing with people who have fled their homes of here. Renou have forty eight thousand people in fifty eight of two hundred seventy eight schools looking for safety. The blue flag of the united for them means of safe place than at home. So we're dealing with you know the fear in that way then. Of course there's injuries. I was informed an hour goal. That one of our health workers but very badly injured on his way home from one of our health centers. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and is now in the icu. In hospitals injuries off. Help us get a sense of the scale of the humanitarian disaster. There i mean what sort of infrastructure for ordinary citizens existed two weeks ago. That is simply no longer there. We've had several primary healthcare centres level to the ground to including one of s. And that's my sounds on frontier doctorswithoutborders s. Exactly we've had the central laboratory conducting the covid nineteen tests directly hit. Well i don't know if it was directly it but it's out of action now. There's no testing capacity. Another impact is the thousands of people in our schools huddling together often in very confined spaces so one of our big worries. Is that our schools will become now centers for spreading the covid nineteen virus now shops up beginning to have empty shelves so increasing. The i think able getting worried about. Will there be enough food. Will there be enough. Electricity fuels of lies are going down. The central power plant depends on fuel so fuel averages per day down to six or eight hours from ten to twelve before the war and going down i understand. We'll be out of fuel in a few days wa- trays problem and that has to do with the damaged infrastructure. Also these other nations plants and connecting pipes sense on being destroyed our humanitarian corridors open and his aide getting into gaza in contrast to the twenty fourteen war on the borders have been completely shut although with one small modification. We apparently did get some fuel today. Five fuel trucks so that was the first time in eight nine days that the border was open for us but then they immediately closed that again. We were supposed to bring some food trucks in as well but we were then told it was getting too dangerous so we are into a second week with this face completely. Shut off from the rest of the world. We've also not had florida's to move people in and out and maybe as importantly with in gaza this constant fighting and their soul be no agreed periods where we can move more freely so where is humanitarian relief coming from seoul far and i believe it's the same for others here but rise the biggest player in gaza. We are having to rely on what we had brought in before. The war started the big sorts. Have these for these fifty eight schools that have turned into emergency shelters. If the border doesn't open there will be a shortage of water there and of course the longer it takes. We estimate that later this week by thursday friday people will need food. What is morale like the state of mind among ordinary civilians in gaza. Really i think people are afraid wandering. Where's the next bomb gonna come from. I think frustration two three weeks ago. There was actually a bit of a period of optimism related to the palestinian elections in a very high number of people who can vote registered over ninety percent of the population that can vote be registered menu of them. Young people source time voter. So there was a sense of maybe. This is the beginning of a new political process that went down the drain and now we are in the middle of a war and many parents often me about their main warriors. That children so first of all. How do you explain this constant loud noise. i'll explain buildings in your neighborhood collapsing. No people dying. And how do you explain what the future will bring. So i think it's the combination of fear of warri about the future that is really bombing People's mood martinez. Schmila directs unra the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees. He's been speaking to us from gaza. Thank you thank you. Very much for this overturning. Some argue that washington has clearly picked a side in the ongoing battle in the middle east. The us sends israel roughly three point three billion dollars. Annually in foreign military financing the biden administration recently approved the sale of seven hundred. Thirty five million dollars worth of weapons israel. The proposed sale was announced before the current hostilities and is still pending zaghawa. Hudson has been examining the transfers of american weapons to israel. She's with the carnegie endowment for international peace and she joins us now zaha three point three billion dollars a year. That's a big number. Put that in context. How much military financing does the. Us provide to other countries in the region. So with respect to foreign military financing israel is receiving about fifty two percent of all foreign military financing and that's more than all other countries combined that are receiving that assistance and another thing that's very exceptional about the security assistance that israel gets is that it also gets a percentage that it can use for purchases within its own country. No other foreign government is allowed to purchase from outside the us but israel's allowed to do that so that it can develop its own capabilities today. Israel has become a leading exporter of weapons making around nine billion dollars a year. Now i wanna talk about the so-called lahey amendments those laws meant to stop the us from giving military help to countries that violate human rights. How is that law applied to weapons sales to israel so actually believe he laws call for a couple of things. I it calls for vetting of military units receiving us security assistance and it calls for cutting off assistance to police and military units that are receiving us security assistance if they're using it to violate human rights with israel. The problem with applying the leahey laws is that it's very difficult to trace security assistance that the us has given israel. Israel gets grants and a portion of it is cash and cashes fungible therefore. It's difficult to track and trace so if a person who's aggrieved by a human rights abuse from israel tries to complain about a violation of the law. It's incredibly difficult to to prove why is set up that way in the first place. That's a great question. And that's the reason why Betty mccollum representative betty mccollum and nineteen other members of congress are calling for requiring the state department to do better reporting on the use of security assistance by particular israeli military units and police. Israel is a tiny country has a population of around nine million democrecy and a key regional ally. It's surrounded by historical enemies that have long wanted to destroy the nation. The arab world has more than four hundred million people. Why shouldn't the us help it's la. I'm not saying that the us shouldn't provide assistance to its allies. But i will say that the us should be better at.
Playing Fair with Eve Rodsky
"I wanted to talk to eve because even for me. A professional feminist this balance has been elusive. And it's humbling. Because feminists have been trying to address this. For many decades nineteenth century feminists created a professional field of home economics to bring value to domestic labor second way feminist tried renegotiating the terms of marriage and coined the phrase the politics of housework recognizing that was often seen as a personal struggle is part of a whole system that doesn't value or support caregiving and domestic work. Today many women in higher paying jobs outsource chelsea karen housework but that work is still being done by other women lower paying jobs who are often women of color. Covert has really laid bare. How imperfect and unjust the system is but as. We re emerge rebuild. That insight may give us an opportunity to renegotiate the terms or as eradicate would say. Reveal the deck. You've created a system that recognizes the true value of caregiving and seeks to redistribute it like all feminists revolutions. It started with a very personal moment. And that's where we began our conversation. I did have a series of experiences. That sort of changed. The course of my life and one of those experiences was a text. My husband sent me nine years ago. That said i'm surprised you didn't get blueberries and the passenger seat of my car. I had a diaper bag and a breast pump at a newborn baby at home and amidst all this chaos racing to get my older son zach at the time he was three. I had a client contract in my lap. And every time i would hit the brakes. Penn would serve stabbed me in the vagina making me completely. Saban pullover to the side of the road. I live in la now and so we don't take traffic lightly so for me to pull over and be laid to pick up zach. Something was really wrong in my marriage. And that was a the fact that i was the fulfill his smoothing needs and literally every single other task for my family was seemingly falling in my lap at the time but more importantly i did not have the career marriage combo i thought i was going to have all those realizations. Were sort of raining down on me that day. When sesame that tax

COVID-19 Vaccine Supply Outpaces Demand
"At least one dose of the vaccine. One new area of concern is the fact that in many parts of the country, including here in Florida, it appears that supply is beginning to outpace demand for shots. Some public health officials are worried the nation could hit a tipping point in the next 2 to 4 weeks, making it harder to reach her immunity. As far as Dr Anthony Fauci is concerned, he doesn't want to focus on that. We've made estimates that is somewhere between 70 and 85%. But we don't know that is a fact so that rather than concentrating on an elusive number Let's get us many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can. There is a growing line of thought among the nations experts that the country will never reach her immunity, in part because of the percentage of Americans who will refuse to be vaccinated. The goal now would be to simply control the spread and future. Pandemics outbreaks so I was able to make my

Unpacking the Concept of 'Wellness Chasing'
"So we are going to be talking about the concepts of wellness chasing and the nutrition jungle today. So you all have probably heard us or me. Talk about the nutrition jungle in some way or form on a lot of different episodes but we wanted to flush it out what is it. Why does it happen. Why are we so confused about nutrition. Information and the place at that conversation starts is with wellness chasing so christina. Take it away. Yes so we started talking about this a lot recently. Trying to describe When you're when you're constantly seeking out nutrition information at other wellness trends and a lotta times. It's attached to unlocking some piece of your health puzzle. A lot of times or like the overarching thing and sometimes you know we dig beneath the surface. A few layers. It's usually are weight ray. Because we interlock weight and health so deeply in our culture so we we started thinking about this more we thought you couple this icon of seeking out kind of mentality and picture someone like walking around round trying to pick up new information like a scavenger hunt and you have this strong value for holistic approaches to wellness which deny can obviously relate to or both of the integrative functional paradigm. So that's where we came from and so we get it in so we were kind of thinking about. You don't necessarily relate to dieting but wellness protocols. Things that are good for your. How are things that you really jive with what we call it wellness chasing because you're kind of jumping from trend or collecting all of this information along the way because you're trying to seek this elusive perfect

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?
"The biggest question of all and of course, I'm talking about Cam Newton Cam Newton ready to be the quarterback for this team or false pause, as of today. It's false and I wrote a column this weekend for Boston Sports Journal, that basically laid out and I'm talking to different people both around the team and also around the league about where Cam is and there's three things that need to go on Nick and it needs to go on now and it needs to go on every day off of the day until the season kicks off and number one. It's cam has to lose weight. He can't he can't play a 250 anymore. He's not a young buck. We saw dead. You know, I thought this but it was confirmed by a couple of NFL people that I I talked to and I trust they said that cams legs got heavier as the season went on and off and run as much he wasn't as a as Elusive and the big thing is not only that but your legs are everything when you throw the ball, if you don't have your legs which you did earlier in the season, they threw the ball a little bit better. If you don't have your legs then you have nothing as far as power and things like that and also just accuracy if you don't have your legs then you have to compensate upper body and things just get all out of whack and that's what happened. When cam last year. So in cam I will give him credit on the I am athlete podcast. He did say, I think he was trying to lose ten pounds. I'd go less. I think he needs to get to 3235. I think that gives them a better chance to be sustainable. He doesn't he doesn't need to be 2:50 to run over linebackers anymore. There aren't that many linebackers that are 2:50 a.m. Should be in a business and his age are going to be 32 a plow on those guys over. So there's that there is he has to get into he he has a he has to get with her own coach. I hope he's working with one but he better be working on one that works on his mechanics all the time every day. Get back to where he was at the beginning of last season get it out of her system because he needs to learn how to just be able to flick the ball. Ten yards instead of making a whole body convulsion just to get the ball out in the last thing is the biggest thing Nick and we've talked about it. I thought is he needs he needs Express 24-hour premium tutoring on the Patriots Playbook and what goes on as far as all right. If the defense does this then I can change to this and what's my audible what's my check because I know everybody's all excited about Johnny Smith and Hunter Henry and you know, we you can also factor in The athletic fullbacks that they've wanted to have for two years. Dan Vitality is coming back supposedly and also they dropped adult and Keen to play that position because there's a choice that they want to be more like the 49ers with use checked. And so it's all nice and dandy that they have two tight ends and athletic fullback and people are absolutely right to say that benefit of that is you get match up issues where all right, if it's safety then we're just going to run over them if their linebackers then we're just going to run past them. We're going to throw the ball. That is great and all but it doesn't mean Jack if you don't have a quarterback who can't see the defense see what's going on check to the right play and take advantage of the defense and last year cam wasn't even close to that. So unless all those things happen and he's not there at this point. He is not ready to be the starting quarterback for the for the Patriots. Do I think he can get there and be better? Yeah, but we'll have to see.

Jack we fun he'd be. He'd be Dave Richard for sure. I. Thank you for the email And we gotta talk about handcuffs. Let me let me read one more question here. This is a debate inspired by one of our listeners. Is it okay to sit a S. T. if you already have a lead going into Monday night football. He won his league last year. He was losing by three going into Monday night football. His opponent could have sat the DSP, but didn't. Didn't play the DS T. The scored negative three points or like. Yeah, he was down by two point. Eight points as DSP score negative three and this guy. One I said it's ridiculous to be even be able to do that. You should have to play a DSP. No matter what what do you guys think? Should you be able to sit at DSP, going Monday night football? What do you mean you should have the play why? Oh. You should have to play a legal lineup you should. You should have to play something. That can't help you do any better than you've done, but could potentially make you. Yes, because it's not fair. Because the other guy, the other of our girl, the other player in this matchup could have had a DSP that score negative points, but their DSP played on Sunday. They don't get this luxury just the schedule I. Don't think I think it's cheap to take a player out of your lineup with. Should it be illegal? No arguing that it's cheat terrible as tail I don't just explain someone who lost their championship because they didn't take the DNC lineup. That's an action that they as as a manager of a team did not do an cost him the championship and you're saying that they shouldn't be allowed to do that. Correct allowed to help your team. All it is is this you have to feel the legal lineup and start illegal lineup every week. That's all it is. Gives what he think. I agree with that I'm. Dave.

"I think it's worth considering, but especially in what's going to be really crazy NFL season I am prioritizing layers with upside. Because I just I think our already low ability to feel confident predicting. What's GonNa? Happen is even lower. In the market is one of the few receivers, this being drafted out of the top four five, that tear maybe ends with Godwin or Leo depending on what you think I think he's one of the few. That has the ability to finish a top three receiver. In terms of ceiling And so. Yeah, it doesn't feel good to be higher than consensus on Amari Cooper. especially with the cornerbacks matches like laid out super inconsistent. But I think there are a lot of reasons to believe. The twenty twenty could be a huge year. Emerson civically and one of the first ones that I think gets me excited about his potential and also. Help Him. Avoid some of these matchups and you guys talk about it is. That he could run an increased amount of routes from the slot. I assume you guys are probably expecting cd-rom. Gironde rations lower at. Do you have any read on that right now, or do you think the Pie I would bank on both of them, taking turns playing the slot and ultimately. The Dallas decoding defenses are doing the line up against them like if they see in in week one that Jalen Ramsey is sticking a cooper lake glue the probably either. I I'm not going to say with certainty that they're gonNA. Keep Cooper outside 'cause they might think that it's better to put Ramsey in the slot and make him uncomfortable there because he doesn't play their lot I don't know if you can make Jalen Ramsey feel uncomfortable, but I would think that that would. open their eyes to throwing more to Gallup lamb, and just kind of using cooper as a decoy doesn't sound great for fantasy, but it's I. Think it's going to be a week by week. Be a case by case basis by week. That's what I think. We're GONNA see from Dallas. Okay Anything, want adder. Yeah, so I just I think if he does get this law debt. Give some huge booster for the average two point seven four yards wounds since becoming a cowboy running routes in slot, which is much higher than on his two point, one or the Brenner is the second best mark in the NFL and slaughtering that time. And also the fact that he has Mike McCarthy now I think that's going to increase the passing volume as a whole inspections. They kept coming more, but also McCarthy has always featured as top weapon from the slot. has been slow specialists one of the best during the early two thousand Even Commas Jordy. Nelson adds twenty sixteen to eighteen. We always saw him give. It saw as well so I I just think if he is playing a lot more routes. Running more rats from the slot in the team is more heavy particularly in the Red Zone which is somewhere McCarthy's course that's influenced by Rogers. In. Dallas has been influence, Z., but bounces down a little bit. More, which I'm projecting it. Has To be somebody is. GonNa Finish talks three receivers spot in. Drafting in that way, but the downside is a little scary to especially the qualified Martius. All right well, the other three that you had were maclaurin Paris CAMENSAC MOSS I I do want to sit back. We have so much to do in the show today. perhaps they'll come up sort of organically throughout the show. We have to obviously talk about Dave winning poker. The other night was a great night for him. He's very proud of it. He made sure. That I brought it up so good job Thank you. I'm wearing my Andrew. Mimi favourable shirt to celebrate today. That's great. I have no idea what that is i. Am the champion, my friends? You don't know who Andrew Niimi is. Everybody knows who Andrew Anemia is tell them ben someone else who doesn't know. I feel so much better with other people don't now. I came in second. And Third Ju at least know who Brad Onus. Oh Yeah. Okay I'M NOT GONNA. Ask Anymore. Both love cats. It's perfect. Go Way back. Dave had a sneaky trivia. Question that I. Don't know the answer to. Go for it. Okay. So who are the top two running backs? Minimum one hundred carries in pro football focuses elusive metric, so it's a combination of Miss Tackles? Broken tackles both on runs and catches. Here's a hint. They are both played in the same division. And here's another hint. The Division is in the AFC I don't want to. then. You should be able to get the other one. WHO's the first one so I? Can this Josh abs was number one the. Actually it. Put me over the top two. FRENZIES number two. It's. Yeah, it's. Of course incorrect. And increased debt. Damian Williams. Oh couldn't believe it. That's what the websites Damian Williams was second in elusive rating. I don't think that necessarily means a whole lot. Since they spent the first round pick on Edwards Allaire and we've talked a lot about C. H. versus Damian all week long. So I'm not GonNa do it again but I thought that was interesting that Damian Williams up there and the fact that Josh Jacobs if he's allusive, is that stat says and I I watched the film he was breaking tackles and Ju can dude crazies awesome with with Henry rugs pushing those safeties back. There's a good offensive line. I had to give Josh Jacobs more credit, so he has moved up for me to wear to where. In non PBR, he's. He's a first round. Pick for me. I will take A. Pr you know me I'm always gonNA take running backs over receivers early I've got him eighth in..

"Cup of Dow starting right now at listening to a Coupla Dow with your host Chris L. Mcleish in Chris's a man with many roles many journeys in one spirit. Hello my friend. How are you doing today today? I'm GonNa talk a little bit about how the Dow is elusive. How when we think we know the answers to things they just Kinda slip from our grasp we can go from having a sense of purpose? Hope in meaning to feeling like everything's lost and then when we think there's just no purpose and meaning to it. All we can and find some glimmers of hope anyway. Let me start out today. By reading chapter thirty eight I'll be reading from the Crispin Hartwell Two Thousand Sixteen version of the data aging chapter. Thirty eight reality does not represent itself. As real that is it's reality reality abandons itself into reality that is its presence cannot and not judge this to be high or that to be low that is it's exultation it has no purpose purpose. That is it's film it. It is without compassion. That is it's mercy. The man of rectitude it tries to make things turn out right and when he fails he rolls up his sleeves and redoubles his efforts. If you lose your way you lose reality if you lose reality you lose compassion if you lose compassion you lose rectitude if you lose rectitude you lose your manners when people have no manners. The world descends into anarchy tumbles humbles and avoid but in the anarchy we act again we must learn how to behave. We must learn rectitude. We learn sincerity not the appearance but the very heart. Can you remain at the center and allow things to be either either way. You always return so we try to make sense of our world. It's part of our nature. Our brain was designed to make makes sense of things and problem. Solve our brains pretty good at it. Having some control is not only a survival mechanism but also it's a way to keep keep us sane from older times when people explain natural phenomenon as being attributed to various gods such as you know the god of thunder gotTa love etc.. We have always tried to make sense of things like famine fortune and everything in between we have our holy books are profits. If it's a pious people are mystics in our deities some of his script tightly science and rationality while on the other end some gripped tightly to faith. We see miracles and have stories from our religious traditions. The combination of these. He's gives us a sense of hope that we will not die because the thought of that is too much for us to bear. Others of US wonder how desirable well it would be to be in a state of eternal bliss for well. Eternity being an infinite peaceful Zombie with no need for excitement jealousy relationships anger at Cetera. And win those of US despair into a state of nihilism. Something happens to make make us believe in something greater than ourselves on one hand being alive in some other dimension doesn't make a lot of sense but neither does our very existence we simply can't pin the dow down constantly tricks us who constantly eludes us when we give up her hope. Somehow hope comes through. We have certainty. Something happens bad to give us uncertain. Not If our head is lost in books and clouds looking for the answers then we lose touch with the reality. That's all around us and the things in the people that matter that are right in front of us and if we get lost in this world then we can lose touch of something greater. You're in her highs and lows in our living in our dying in reality and in non reality it is there. It's all the Dow. Don't lose compassion. Live life like it really means something even if you're really not sure that it does love even when you don't have to do good even when no one one is looking the Dow will never let us fully see it or at least not in this lifetime when we think we see it. It's just not there. And when we know it is not there can somehow gives us a glimpse of it and reveals itself. You've let's take a break and when I come back I'm going to be taking.

"Investment in basic research. One of the challenges in innovation is that when it comes to innovation, you want people to come up with novel ideas in some cases, without even thinking about how it's going to apply in Oldman, author and business, growth expert. So there are two categories of innovation or solutions. One side is technology center, which says, wow, this is really novel technology, and we're gonna come up with something that's so innovative. And then we're going to figure out how we apply it. So, for example, in tesla, tesla came up with as to very efficiently store, and then tap into the energy via batteries that ultimately gave people tremendous ability to rapidly store, energy in batteries, and draw power from batteries and the first imitation of that most of us know about is vehicle, but tesla also has these power walls for storing energy. So in their case, they said, we're gonna develop something that changes the world. World number just gotta figure out. Why do people need this, and what does it solve? The other side of innovation is people say there's a gap in the marketplace. And if we can solve this problem, then people are going to beat a patio door, the second scenario tends to have rapid option. And those are situations where people say, wow, this is really great. I need that they solve something that no one else could saw as opposed to the former people say, wow. That's really interesting. Now, why would I do that? Heck speculations about technology have I changed over the last decade in particular, as we've had more and more, particularly digital technology put in front of this from a digital technology perspective. Definitely our tolerance for inconvenience has dropped dramatically. No matter what industry, you're in. If you're used to one of these ridesharing services like Uber lift some of these technologies where you can have somebody show up and take you pointed point be technologies. Like. Amazon, I can see exactly where a package is going to be delivered. And it'll show me on the route where that vehicle is. So I know there are three stops away for delivery, the challenges that if that's the expectation I have when it comes to car ride system, or a package delivery. Then what happens is that I have same expectation with any business dealing with. So now all of a sudden, I'm doing with an IT services company, and they say, oh, yeah, the technicial will be out there this afternoon. Am I expedition is well, how come I can't see a map where the person is right now because I can see it and all these other applications. And so as we get more sophisticated in these applications, our expectations consumers starts to change. And we say, well, if I can get it in this app them, why can't you do it because if I'd never seen it before I wouldn't have that expectation, but now that I've seen it, I expect everyone to deliver it so that can be an issue for businesses trying to keep pace with consumer expectations, but it can also be positive. It can drive. The change says an open, for example, if you look back, even ten years ago, people were much more reluctant to transact business. Online and Amazon have made it so easy for people to transact business online that now people consciously say, well, I realize there, maybe a security risk, but this is so much easier that I'm willing to take that chance. So if you think about it, you're also creating a whole new industry of opportunity. How important is laid to ship is company late ship. When it comes to developing successful innovation, we tend to think of innovation as being related to scientists to the to the actual technologists themselves leadership is absolutely essential. The thing is that if you're not creating an environment, where you're encouraging people to take chances, where you're encouraging people to try things, and then potentially fail. Then you have a challenge by the same token, what happens sometimes is that we work in little stove. Pipes inside the organization. So we say okay, well, the engineers are going to come up with this. But what I find is the best companies, the most innovative company is what they will do is they will team up some of their business analysts with some of their scientists and say, okay, let's say Denna fi some problems that we think we can solve with these technologies. And let's validate this before we take these technologies out all the while encouraging people in saying, look, we realized that this may not succeed. We realized that you're doing something that's never been done before. So what are the things that we can do, what are the tools, we can put in place to maximize your chances excess and more importantly, how do we apply the guard rails to this, so that we know when it's time to stop this venture because the most dangerous part is when people keep chasing something for so long that all of a sudden, the shareholders, everyone the company knows that they're never gonna get there. But somebody the top keeps saying no no keep going for it, but they know their. Never gonna cheat it, so we have to have some milestones along the way to encourage people that say, look, as long as these milestones, we keep going if we don't hit too, these milestones in a row that we need to revisit where.
