John kennedy of louisiana. Senator they're talking about the giant stimulus bill that more and more people are realizing is a democratic wishlist Wanted to do forever. Never let a crisis go to waste. People are in a spending mood. Nobody understands what a trillion dollars means anymore. So let's jam this all through all we. Can you know what we have. King murphy quick before the coronavirus pandemic silver. Because then we won't be able to do it. Yeah sean hit number fifty two for me. This bill is too expensive and too expansive. He listed a lot of things in there and think about this. This is supposed to be a cova bill. Only nine percent of it goes dacoven. What they are doing is telling you. The swamp is back everything you have warned your viewers about before the election is coming true in this bill. Well i don't know about A lot of it but like you know. I read the long article about the school portion. The hundred and thirty million billion dollars The vast majority of which is going to get spent over the next seven years. Of course that first of all they don't need the money to open the schools because there are plenty of schools had opened up without that money and are fine. They don't need the money at all but the fact that it spread out over the next seven years tells you everything you need to know. It's got nothing to do with the freaking kovin suspending syria. I would assume there's a whole bunch of other stuff in there that similar right well as kevin mccarthy put it only nine percent has anything to do with govan. the rest is just spreading money around the only reason. I have any interest in this story. Because i don't really care about celebrity news that much. It's just because. I got railroaded by park ranger once myself. So it makes me mad. So i'm happy to see that bruce springsteen's drunk driving drunk driving reckless driving charges were dropped and he has pled guilty to the least serious charge which was drinking in an area where it was banned and was fined. Five hundred and fifty five hundred and forty dollars you remember the story was he took a shot at akilah sitting on his motorcycle and then the park ranger who has police powers said. If you drive off. I'm giving you a ticket. And he said i'm driving off and he drove off because it's not illegal to have a- shot of booze and drive something but whatever. Evidently it was in that part of the park jack. Jack advocating for lawlessness there. If it's giant rock star doesn't shocking jon. Bon jovi would never behave like that. Now he's down on the dock The coronavirus vaccine is one hundred percent effective. Why don't you know that you should know that. Long article in the atlantic of course long. That's the only thing that ever. No editors no editors never leave anything out. They say Long article in the atlantic in this guy explaining it. i think we're probably downplaying. Just how great these vaccines are the numbers that are most reported in the media the numbers their mission forty didn't headlines are the efficacy numbers for symptomatic infection. So when you see like pfizer. Four percent moderna ninety five percent. Johnson johnson sixty six percent. that's efficacy against symptomatic infection. But disease isn't just infection is about whether you get the disease whether you can transmit the disease and whether it can kill you right. I mean people get common colds all the time. No one cares about that infection. And what makes these vaccines so special. In a way that i think is really downplayed in the press too often is that they are one hundred percent successful in the trials at blocking Hospitalizations and deaths not sixty six not ninety five one hundred percent out of seventy five thousand people that went through these trials for pfizer madera. Astrazeneca johnson johnson. No no one. Zero at seventy five thousand were hospitalized after four weeks and none of them died in that arm of the trial. It's unbelievable shots are miracles. And so when we're deciding between shots. I in a way. Don't want people looking at these headline figures ninety five or sixty six. Look at the number one hundred. That's how effective these are at blocking hostels station deaths so he threw in what all four or five vaccine names there with with that seventy two thousand people having gone through the drought not one hospitalization. Let alone death. Do we not know that. Well you know now if you listen to this show but that's that's big news. That's huge news of course and it changes all basis for all the emergency powers and closures and shutdowns at schools being closed and the rest of it. So it's it's even more important than the health aspect of it. The policy aspect of it is huge Looking up at the good morning. America people in the control group were pretty pissed that they got the placebo. Yeah in those trial. Oh yeah give me the sugar shot. He faster you. i'm looking up. Good morning america. And for some reason they're doing a segment on dating online dating for when the coronavirus ends and you need to start dating again or something. I guess i don't their premises but anyway questions to ask when you start dating ask your new person you're gonna date what type of relationship you're looking for okay. I suppose that's fair rapport. I would. I wouldn't do that right off the bat. But maybe that sort of person what does love to you okay. Rumble at seems like an. We'd can we decide if we like each other even a little bit before we talk about that. This is the question i like. How are you under pressure enduring conflict.

Okay some of the numbers behind the number One reason why florida's had more deaths but not cases. Is that older folks account for a larger portion of florida's population. Oh yes that's a stat that gets left out all the time that the florida has so many old people and still was about the same as california spread out over the year. It's amazing second-largest sixty five plus population but ranks number twenty seven for deaths in the us. The elderly in california on the other hand comprise two percent less than state population. Still california has worse outcomes nursing home deaths at two point two seven deaths per one hundred florida zero point seven two per one hundred hard to say why but the the numbers are very very similar. It's as if they were both pursuing exactly the same policies even though they were almost polar opposites. Now here's the part. That really gets interesting. So you have similar covert outcomes. The unemployment rate in florida was six point one percent last december. It takes a while to compile statistics. Six point one percent california's nine percent half again higher unemployment rate in california the gross. Now this is kind of confusing. The gross domestic product of each state. The drop in california was larger than florida and the rise in the bounceback quarter three was smaller than florida. Another revealing factor inbound outbound migration according to two thousand twenty data collected from to moving companies. Florida is among the top states for inbound migration cal unicorn high for outbound migration these follow longstanding trends taxes cost of living affordable housing etc. Florida conversely attracting movers for having no income tax low housing prices agreeable climate. That sort of thing you know i could there weekly average retail and recreation mobility. I have all sorts of economic numbers here. But the point is liberty kept the economy haman and had similar losses to draconian or -mergency powers wielded by a half wit. I hope if this ever happens again people will look at these are comparisons and make the decisions based on that. Yeah well to boil it down to the very very simple. And i'm addressing. Y'all everybody listening right now. Do you know how to protect yourself. And your loved ones to the degree. You think is necessary because some of you want to be very very safe you want to be very cautious for perhaps legitimate reasons. Some of you don't give a damn you live your life. You know a fish tailing around curves tiger woods d you know how to protect yourself and your family to the degree you think is proper if the answer is yes you have no need for a gavin newsom or a andrew cuomo wielding their emergency powers from on high. The there were flu. Ass- all they are is a clamp on your liberty don't take it and different major development in the bruce springsteen dui controversy for goodness sakes. I thought we had real momentum there from it and some important things that i'm going to talk about The vaccines that are out. There are one hundred percent effective. There are one hundred percent effective on yet. Another example of the media doing a horrible job of bringing us information we need. This has been known for quite some time right.

So i don't know smart. People went farther than i like that internet. Is there anything you can't. Hey wanted to touch on this very briefly before we get into other stuff but we had a conversation so far today on the show about how you know the tiger woods thing with all due respect to shatter leg in his greatness as a call for the amount of coverage the amount of air it sucked out of news coverage. Is this ridiculous. Given all the important things going on the world and you know where do you get your good solid news and we. We've you folks have contributed various ideas and a lot of you have said from the armstrong and getty show which we appreciate very much but i just wanna make sure everybody is aware of this really insidious thing that's happening in the house of representatives and that was what happened on monday and this is not over by any means but on monday. You had a couple of house. Democrats grilling cable news system. Some of the super giants. At and t. Roku comcast verizon asking why you're carrying fox news or one america news network or news. Max blaming the right leaning outlets for spreading misinformation in conspiracy theories. Nobody asked why is. Msnbc being carried. Why why did you have michael albany on every night. Claiming the supreme court justices a gang rapist past every single. But that's okay. i guess. Great example the democrats asked to content carriers if they plan to continue carrying fox news newsmax owing and and if so y and then you have a number of congress people sending the message that we ought to d platform these channels. We ought to start attacking their advertisers. It's been very popular in left-wing twitter. That sort of thing. And i'm telling you folks. This is the fight of our lives the fight of competing ideas versus silencing ideas in size we as conservatives were fighting with one hand tied behind our back because for the most part we refuse to engage in the silencing thing and i would ask you stay on that high road because as soon as you weaponized that sort of thing it'll be used against you and it just it makes me crazy anyway so join us in that fight. In any way you see fit moving on disney is talking very seriously about moving some of its operations from california where they still can't open their theme parks to florida joining the latest in a long line of of tech giants and then manufacturers others who are fleeing cal unicorn e as fast as they can in florida where they're theme park is open. Yeah right indeed. I'm sorry. I left that unsettling steph when he just amazing. It's just amazing that that has been the story through this. Most of this whole thing he got to disney properties. One close one open right right well. In that china case alone will they did to the death that's resulted in disneyworld in epcot. Oh the parties. No it hasn't done anything. And i came across this great piece. In american institute for economic research is the publishing arm of the boss the out society you know free minds free people let sorta and it's it's really terrific. It's written by amelia. Jaski clever young woman florida and california berkeley similar. For the warm climates beaches tourist destinations immigrant populations and more but both states could not be more different with respect to the management of the covid nineteen pandemic florida operates on close to zero pandemic related restrictions. Were as california maintained. Strict lockdown policies in california virtually all public schools are closed. I would point out if i might interject. In defiance of the state's own policies increasingly. They set a ridiculous threshold for opening. In spite of all the science they reached that ridiculous threshold and the teachers are still teachers. Unions are still preventing the opening but getting back to the article. Restaurants must follow unwavering capacity limits. Travelers must quarantine for ten days in the list goes on. Meanwhile florida schools are all open for in person instruction. Statewide restrictions do not exist for restaurants. And there's no travel quarantine implemented by the states. Shame shame on the media for not drawing this comparison regularly and talking about it openly and say. Here's where california's got right. Here's for florida's got it right back and forth just have a real good grownup conversation about it but shame on the media for not talking about this the whole damn year here here and listen. If you're new to the show you might wanna know. There are times when if You know the folks were rooting for screw up. We're gonna tell you they screwed up. We're not just going to you. Know be parrots for our point of view. We're gonna try to be honest because to our to our point of view if you are honest about your philosophy and when it messes up and how it could be improved you get better you get stronger you get smarter. You can convince more people. This is the way to go mindless cheerleading. Oh i don't think does that. I'd read a great article about that. Actually recently it had to do with rush limbaugh but how reagan was a. He was a great creature for conservatism. He spoke outward to moderates to liberals and explain to them why this is better at. He did so with magnificent. Success and to a large extent conservatives and conservative media has kind of become inward-looking in preaching to the choir issues intro. But more on that. I i need to finish the on on florida. And that there's because there's a ton to this article on great but so you got the super hardcore restrictions and kelly in a cornea florida wide. Open all of these. These details point to florida's current stringency score on the shutdown at thirty-three compared to california's almost sixty well the media labels california governor. Newsom lockdown fanatic. They call governor disentis death santa's for being too relaxed. The two governors are polar opposites. And how they handle covert but their outcomes are peculiarly similar in total california experienced more cases per one hundred thousand people florida had slightly more deaths per one hundred thousand people. But if you if you wait all out over time it's almost the same. Yeah it's it's really interesting.

Miami Heat to use COVID-19-sniffing dogs to screen fans at basketball games
"The NBA will be welcoming fans to the arena this week with a unique system for determining whether or not they're infected. Fourth Coronavirus Fox is Ryan mayor Has this story. It's very interesting. Miami Heat are set to welcome fans to American Airlines Arena this week, and they'll do so with coronavirus sniffing dogs in place to screen fans before they entered the building. The Associated Press reports that the team has been working on the plan for months and has already used the dogs. Screeners for games at which family and friends of players were allowed to attend the Heat plan to keep attendance under 2000 fans for the time being, and if a guest is allergic to dogs, they will be able to bypass that screening by submitting to a rapid auntie gin test for the virus. The first game with fans is set for Monday night against Los Angeles. Clippers. Ryan Mayor
The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release
Ep 128: Vice President Kamala Harris, Black Women and Leading with Charisse Jones, USA Today - burst 2
"Win senator. Kamala harris became madam vice. President elect comma harris the tortoise fear. The tiktok sphere the interwebs wit nuts. And there's a reason why she's our first black and female vice president elect an. She's first pacific asian islander. This is huge. What you say series. It is momentous and i think that when you talk about social media really good point to bring up is part of the reason that she got that appointment that she was picked by joe biden was black women coming together activists media personality saying we want a pay off our work right you know. We deserve to be in leadership. We're always doing the work of this political party and we want a black woman in that space and so you know her ascension represents not only her talent but all of the talents that came together from that movement to make sure that we were recognized in that way. And it culminates on this day. It's amazing because so much of what's going on in this political arena that led up to the elections and even there after because we had run off in georgia where black women played a huge role in moving the needle in some states. That weren't supposed to be blue. I think that's what's so interesting. Is that not only. Do you have kamla in the spotlight. Comma harris but stacey gabriel. Yes and all of those organizers who are getting that moment in the spotlight because it's so clear The role that we play at how deserved we are of recognition and being able to dispense power. And not just help other people attain it and so everything that happened after the presidential election. Has i think really made that clear as well absolutely. And you know the book. And i've shared it with you. Know thanks really centers on this other folks. I want you to understand that. What happens in the political sphere has everything to do with what happens in the corpus sphere. There is no separating it and you may say oh we don't talk politics at work that's not the point. It's the human dynamic and what we saw this political you know phenomenon that happened with joe biden choosing a black woman in response to kind of You know it was a large outcry from people that understand that time and time of gin black women have come to
Using Computational Discovery to Build Better Immunotherapies
"Team. Thanks for joining us dan. We're gonna talk about immunotherapy compuserve and its efforts to pursue novel targets for ahmed cancer types. Perhaps we can been gin with the idea of checkpoint inhibitors what are they. And how do they work. He'd be taurus. Are actually proteins modulating the immune system responds in the context of fay affair. Kasim yuna therapy. It was identified. There is a crosstalk between immune cells and and the cancer. This crosstalk is being done through immune checkpoint and and usually these are inhibiting the immune system response to the to the cancer to the cancer cells and and the drugs the few drugs that are out there that are dressing these same immune checkpoint skin to treat cancer. Patients are actually am inhibiting. The inhibition exerted by immune checkpoint on the cancer cells in diff- therefore allowing the immune system to be stimulated and actually fight the cancer. This has been a a real revolution in cancer. Care but these still have limited efficacy. How how effective are these therapies at treating cancer today as of today about twenty to thirty percent of the patient population of the cancer patients are responsive to these drugs. It is increasing with time. We're more proven are being done with the current in hebrew tours. But i have to say that you know. Cancer is a movie factoria disease and and it's actually a collection of many different diseases and we're not in a situation where one treatment fits all basically declined immune checkpoint a drugs are addressing only few number drug targets and they're still many mechanisms that need to be a still a explored and and identified and drugs need to be developed in order to address the various mechanisms of action by which the kansas are actually avoiding the immune system. And here's actually that were. Competent fits in and see what we do. Discover new drug targets and developer first in class drugs to address. These struck targets copy. Jen has developed a computational based drug discovery platform. What is the platform. And how does it work. So the platform is is basically based on twenty years a fan and know how that was built at computation with being a computational discovery company for many years and then after we established a critical mass of discovery capabilities. We turn to be to. We are today. Pretty discovery and development company in generale with built computer systems tucson algorithms in order to be able to address the challenge of new drug targets discovery. And you biological halfway discovery. Identify new drug targets is a is a is a very complex isn't f. fourteens. Multiday mentioned effort and for that we had to develop a multiple systems. We've built a lot of know-how in the company and we've built a Expertise in what is called multi onyx analysis. We're not limiting our platform to a specific data type or a specific technology. Actually we're very flexible. Tools and systems an algorithms are really designed to address multiple data sources multiple data technologies and. This is because this is multifactorial and complex and filled to work in. An all of these are augmented with human expertise that we have in the company in the last twenty years. How do the targets. You've discovered differ from the targets that today's checkpoint inhibitors go after and it's very good question. Actually it's not very different in terms of you know still it's checkpoint but i think that the nature of checkpoints one as compared to the others those that are known and those that we discovered these are proteins. That are very different from one. Another so yes all of them. At least those are defined as negative customer tour costing military checkpoints. They're all inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer. But they're doing it in different ways and what we discovered is as i said you know the checkpoints are now have been translated to drugs that are in the market. A really only very few. I think about three or sociology for pd one. Pedia want and what we discovered. Is you know you biological pathways debts allowed us to discover new immune. Checkpoint that are still inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer but in a different way a different mechanism and this allows us to be able to develop hopefully no new treatments solutions. That will address those cancer patients the not responsive to the current checkpoint inhibitors check on earth. What are the issues with. Existing immunotherapy is the ability of cancers to develop resistance. Where are you doing to address that issue so this is actually exactly what we're trying to do. Am that in cancer. Immunotherapy is there are two issues right there. Ease the patients that are not responsive in does that with time that are developing what is called acquired resistance. We're we're trying to do in. The company is to try and focus on those biological pathways that we believe would address those patients that are not responsive to the current checkpoint blockade. So they're in different ways with different. Mechanism does cancers data and actually deliver a different solution to the problem. And this will were trying to work on. You know the leading the leading drug that is in development at is now owning phase one studies and we have owning michel data in the clinic but the days actually am supporting designs behind. We discovered so we discovered a completely new biological pathway identified sen typically that it is addressing am in. You am a new mechanism that still this family of immune checkpoint. The preclinical data suggested that it should address
Hello Fresh Had a Great Year, But Microwavable Meals Did Even Better
"With on again off again covid restrictions keeping hungry mouths out of restaurants. It's no surprise that twenty twenty was a banner year for cooking at home. That's been great for meal. Kit companies like hellofresh and blue apron. Homebound customers tired of familiar recipes flocked offerings like smashed black bean to start as in meatloaf la mom already and under forty-five minutes hellofresh orders grew one hundred fourteen percent over a year ago according to a statement from the company as much as meal kits have shown during the pandemic though. There were no match for their biggest rival. The microwave twenty twenty was a record year for the frozen food. Aisle sales of microwavable ready meals in the us grew to more than twenty five billion dollars last year.

Boston doctor calls for more self-administered COVID-19 tests to stop the spread
"Women's Hospital is published a study calling for a new testing approach to stop the spread of covert 19 self administered home tests. In his study, published in the journal Science, Dr Michael Meena argues the allure test or a similar rapid test should be mass produced and sent out to all Americans. Something like twice a week. Stuff that we could Place into people. Tomes are called the rapid Auntie Gin test. They've been mired in a lot of controversy. But if your goal is to detect people who are currently infection and at risk to infect other people, these tests are very accurate. I don't have to. State
The 7 mindsets of connectors
"To another episode of industry thought leader podcast brought to you by industry thought leader kademi stand out the heard and influence on your highest and recross also known as the podcasting quyen. Now my guest today says the simple truth. Is this connectors find. Great success in life. And if you don't realize it yet we are now living in the age of networking. So do you want to increase your influence and impact by becoming a better connector but join no way to start with. Today's guest is going to show you. How join me on the show. Today is michelle letterman. Michelle is an accomplished speaker trainer. Approach an author of four books including the internationally recognized the levin laws of likability She was named by forbes as one of the twenty five professional networking experts to watch and a former ny professor financial executive and recovering cpa. She now works with organizations and individuals to help them build real relationship. The greater results through the company executive essentials now on today show. Michelle is going to share. Why do we need to be connected. The seven levels of connectors as well as the seven mindset of connectors. Welcome to the show. Michelle thanks for having me on. We know and of probably heard through business. That networking is so so important. But i love the way that you've said we're now living in the age of networking. It's so more important than it ever was and so today. We're really going to dive into to connecting. And what is a connector and those seven levels but what interested you. You've got a great background diverse background. What was it specifically around networking and connecting. That attracted you that now. You really specializing in that area. I always say. I teach all the mistakes ever made so that you don't make them too and i used to be that polarizing personality that's where my research started around like ability to understand. What was it that was doing that was causing either them to love me or to hate me but there wasn't a whole lot of in between and really understanding how does connection form and what enables connections to happen but what i started to learn. Was that my results. Drastically changed when. I took a relationship partisan Approach right and that's what a connector is somebody who prioritize relationships in all their interactions professional personal. It doesn't matter the relationship comes. i mean. obviously you're going to talk a little bit about. Why be connected. You've just established. It's so important to do that. Relationships what are some of the things before we dive into the seven levels of connectors. What are the things that you want us to be aware of. That might be because of what's happened in the world now while some of the things that people are still doing that would have been okay and and where you know something that we would do in the past but really moving forward into twenty twenty one. We need to realize that this is not helping us to be that connector. That person who are attracting air ideal clients and stakeholders. What are some things that we need to be aware of. Don't do this moving forward the what not to do. There's one thing in it's really interesting. This book came out in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred and in two thousand twenty there has been a lot around the the social inequality and social injustice and there's a whole section on the book about diversifying and expanding our connections and it's great to know everybody in a certain fields or everybody a certain geographic region. It's even better when we can go broad. And when we diversify our connections we make better decisions. We have more access to information. We are further up on the connector spectrum. So what other. Things we don't want to do is we. Don't want to call out the differences. We want to call out the similarities because the differences are often obvious between us but the similarities are things that we have to look for and one of the ways to be more inclusive. Connector is to think about focusing on the similarities calling out the larry's it's not about distinguishing or disregarding those differences but that that's not where we need to start. That's not where we need to focus. It's interesting you should say that because there's been a couple of times where i've reached out to someone here in melbourne with. Just come out of area tight lockdown. So the may it's been very intentional in networking linked gin and it's interesting because some people reach and say well actually you'll not my ideal clients keeping that i've been in fray and i'm thinking well i might not your ideal client but i talked to a lot of people around the globe connected to people such as michelle let him and who is a specialist an expert in this area. And so that's the kind of thing you talking about. Is the giant. Just be so focused narrow minded. Because you just don't know who that person is connected to and can you up to a whole new area of people. Yes that's exactly it. I have always been against this networking. I'm like it. Has the word working who wants to do it. And when i was writing the most recent book the connectors advantage. My brother-in-law came into office. And he said well. What's the difference with networking in connector. And i said networking something that you do a connector. That's who you are. And that's the shift. I want people to make rather than doing something and and when we tend to network for need and we network for now and it is very narrowly focused as you said but when we think about just connecting and building relationships because we want to because we get to then we have this really firm and tight community that you can call upon and i gotta tell you it was people. I went to business school. That you got me a client at the moma and my sister's boyfriend from middle school got me into nbc so it isn't about strategic networking. It isn't about well. I don't wanna talk to you because you can't do anything for me. It's being social and curious which is one of the mindsets it's being open and accepting it's enjoying the connection for the sake of connection and knowing that the rest will follow.
FDA allows use of over-the-counter home test for COVID-19
"The U. S. The Food and Drug Administration. The FDA issued an an emergency emergency used used authorization. authorization. For For the the first first over over the the counter counter fully fully home home diagnostic diagnostic test test for for covert covert 19. 19. I I understand understand how this would work. But If they're counting covert 19 cases. This is going to ruin that. Because there are a lot of people that don't want to go get the test because they don't want to be in the database. But if they could do a home test, they're not gonna tell anybody if they test positive You know? The insurgent tests count as solid positives. I don't think they do. I think everything counts is a positive. I think if you sneeze before you die, you're a covert death. That's what I think, Boy. How many people have died of other things, But since they had covert, it was counted as a kid. I don't know. I don't keep track of the record. Okay, so don't old boy me. That's what's happening. It's pretty cool, though, to have a knack home test. You like go to Walgreens and get one right So, yes, it said it runs a liquid sample along the surface with reactive molecules to test the text fragments of proteins. The virus from a nasal swab sample from any individual two years of age or older. This is a quote. Today's authorization is a major milestone and diagnostic testing for covert 19 by authorizing the test for over the counter use. The FDA allows it to be sold in places like drugstores were a patient can buy it swab their nose, run the test and find their results in his little is 20 minutes. So as we continue to authorize additional test for at home use, we're helping expand America's access to testing, reducing the burden of laboratories and test supplies and giving Americans more testing options for the comfort and safety of their own homes. I think it's great. But what does that do to their count? Or is it gonna be after we stopped needing to count? Interesting question, right? I don't know The answer to it. To be honest, Yeah, but it is. Ah, maybe we should start putting out our own numbers. Every day. You should tweet your personal numbers in your household. It's just me. 111 negative. Hopefully, Yeah. Hopefully you're not negative. Not another negative Today, Guys update me every day. I wonder what the expense of this is going to because it doesn't say in this how much it costs. Well, that might depend on the company that you buy it from, right? Yeah. I don't know that for a fact. But I'm guessing they're selling it to this at the same price to each of the vendors, and then the vendors will charge you whatever they deem necessary. The Ellen Ellen E E L l u. M E is that a loom? Shark Cove in 19 home test uses a mid terminate nasal swab. That sounds painful. Yeah, that doesn't sound good. Yeah. Collect samples collected further back than the usual nasal swab. But not as far back as the nasal Feyerick General swab. Listen, anything in my nose is too far back. Yeah, not cool with any of it. The nasal faring geel swab. Which are only appropriate for used by trained health care professionals. I'm not jamming anything up my nose. Well, and I feel like when you're required to do the test to yourself. You're probably not. Likely tol that far, you know, like you're gonna get to a certain distance and be like Nope, That's not right. So the FDA has approved this at home test. I wonder how quickly they'll be out. And then you know there's gonna be a disclaimer on there that says that it's not always accurate. And if you test positive or negative, and will it be, Will it be sufficient? You know, like, I guess it's um What is the ticket Master? Are they the ones that are saying you won't be able to go to one of their events? If you buy a ticket through Ticketmaster without a negative test when they start opening things up a lot of places they're doing Will that count? An auntie gin at home test. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know what he's got to be from a doctor and yeah, yeah. Do you have to have like a note, right? You have to show them the physical. That like here is Yeah, Here's my negative test. It is because they're even talking about negative tests for passports now, too. Yeah, Traveling absolutely that if you're going to travel internationally, that some countries are going to require a negative test for you to be able to. If you traveled each other countries you travel abroad at all. I've gone to Mexico once. Okay? Well, I don't know that it's the same in Mexico. When you go to Europe. It is a free for all trying to get through customs. I mean, I've heard for all your herded into a room. And then you pass through the and there's no nobody's in line. Everybody's kind of pushing. So now. Not only would you have to have a passport, but you have to have a negative test. Maybe. It feels to me like the anti gin at home test is like great to have it awesome resource, but it feels less legit to me right? It feels less official. Right, And I wonder what it could be used for what an employer accept it. With the employers around here say, you know all you if you sneeze in the hallway, so the boss says, aren't go home and don't come back to you to test Could the at home tests get you back into work or do they want to see you Just go to Walgreen's after the show and you pick up a test and Right. It says negative in your leg. All right. I'm back tomorrow. I don't know if that would count. I don't know, because how many people would fake the test? How many people would not do it? A pro? Because again, this one goes back into your nose. But not all the way back. Like the other one that touches you. You know you're doing it right, right. That's a good question. But it's approved. Well, next time we have Dr Kerr Crist, our state's top public. Hello? Yeah, I would love to ask her about that at home test. Yeah. Great, classy If she would do it. Would you get the at home test for you and your fan? She's a doctor, so her at home test has got to be acceptable. She probably just can't get a test whenever she wants For, like at a moments notice I would assume and her family. They probably have the fast test because of what they do. Probably, um and I would love to ask her about Vaccines. How are the vaccinations going? You know, how is how is the rollout? Is it ahead of schedule is a behind schedule is what you thought it would be. How many people a day We got to get back on the show working on it Perfect. We what we've got to do here in this hour of the show we were talking about. Schools will probably do this at 11 30, but I wanted to bring that about the at home test. This is proof that we are seeing technology is moving very quickly.

He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

Don't hurt the monsters. That's the part I have a problem with and that the only thing that they could come up with is giant walking robots. Sold Duffy. Sword. Let's Champs. It's.

"He's doesn't some really good movies and inception thought was exceptional. And another one you know I think he does movies that really stand up to repeated viewing. To me I think that was That's one that people didn't seem to really liked the ending I thought the ending was perfect. Exactly the way should been. and I'm looking forward to tenant, but here's my problem. And this kind of a big problem for me. Christopher Nolan is a firm believer of the movie going experience. He still shoes a lot of stuff on seventy millimeter. you know he's a vivax stop sign. He wants you to go to a movie theater to see it because that's how he makes his movies for movie theater and I get that. That's cool. Except in the middle of fricken pandemic in hundreds of thousands of people are dying and he's pushing movie theaters to reopen as soon as possible. So people can watches movie. I have an issue with that I think that that is amazingly irresponsible. Well So. He's a thing I've got the theme for this week's. This week's episode really is, is it Christopher Nolan pushing it? Yes. He's done interviews. He's actually come out and talk to the press. He's not want this movie to go right to video right? That's well, that's a different point. Yeah. Is he pushing for it to be released now? Yet, or is he just saying whenever it's ready? I want it to be seen in the movies is at the studio is pushing it to Really Been Royce now or is it or is it Christopher Nolan himself saying I wanted to be released. Now I think they're on the same page. Everything, I've read I saw like they're more on the same page I am not so sure and this is where. The problem is it comes down to con-. Bad reporting really is the hulk of these stories is that they want to get this movie theaters. They conflate that with they WANNA, get the phases I've missed quick as quickly as possible. Therefore, they want to get this this movie theaters as quickly as possible, and then you have the story of the theaters who really want to reopen because they're not making any money groped, but they're terrified of putting off people by by making a lot like again the they're being irresponsible. Yeah, and the problem is is that is the way I'm in look hey, we go his his a headline that just kind of under steitz this this is from and says Christopher. Nolan movies. Ranked by with I'd risk my life to see them. That's horrible. Now is horrible. Yeah. I think that going oaks. Is really behind this number experience you know criminal than pushing to have his his movie put out. You know in the middle of a pandemic Christopher, Nolan just trying to kill everybody in the pandemic just for the sake of his movie. That's the narrative that's being put out there I'm just not convinced from the level reporting. I've seen about this because I've seen very few quotes from Christopher Nolan seen a lot of people saying, Oh, you know, and it's certainly true that tenant has had several release dates of all been in the middle of the pandemic. Originally, it was GONNA be June, July and August, and now it September and. You know and certainly you know Nolan is clear that yes, you said. He feels the these movies can't be can't be put straight to video there had to be seen in the theater, but whether he's pushing. A weather in Warner brothers pushing it just not make clear in these stories and then I think that's Reporting friendly. Well, that doesn't surprise me but here's the thing. In here, the broader question. Is it the is this the end of movie theaters. it depends how long it goes. Awful. However. Here's the thing for. How long have we been talking? We can go years back on. Tech Fan. Where were you and I have had brief conversations About video on demand and how you know it's it. We think forget putting the pandemic site without that. That's a better way to enjoy movies for a lot of people. It's a lot less expensive. Yeah. Your in the. Privacy of your home, you can pause to use the bathroom. It's just a better experience now with stuff like sixty, five inch televisions in four K. under five hundred dollars Y-, you're not getting a sub-standard viewing experience at home, and this isn't people watching on their phone. They're watching on big screens at home with really decent audio. So at what point is a movie theater just simply done because more and more people are going to say you know what I'm just going to wait till comes out on video that's been going on since a vhs grace started and that hurt the movie but no eight has an no, it has i. Know that situation has been going on I remember very early on the movie theaters chains being concerned about the impact on viewer figures and the uncertainty I think during the nineties, there was a general. Steady decrease in in in overall viewing figures, they kinda turned it round towards the end of the nineties. And and really mid-2000s onwards then exploded again because they've started doing good movies that well, these big these big ticket popcorn movies that people want to see The the the question yet does not. So to me, there's no question that people enjoy going to see these big movies at theaters. Yeah. The difficulty is, is that Do they enjoy? That experience marched they prepared to risk their health for it and to me the question is independent of the movies themselves and is more about the movie theaters and what's going on at the moment. Basically while cove it is is around you compaq a movie theater and I don't think it's going to happen. Moving forward. No I'd I can agree with you. It's clearer and clearer to be honest if it's clear to me right from the beginning but certainly the what's been happening the last couple of months, which is a loss of for various different reasons whether the economic with the political with an ideological the right around the world, we've seen a phases of countries that have done a lockdown and then have released wrote lockdown and some of them have. Released lockdown in different ways some of them have just basically ignored the problem gone away like in your country A, my country they've been kind of conservative in that sort of thing, but it doesn't matter where they've done or how they've done it in pretty much every company no matter how they dealt with code. As soon as they've released their measures, we've seen a bounceback of the virus, which is obvious because it's not an away. And this is a contagious virus, and as soon as people start mingling more than the virus spread small. No matter what. What what controls you put in place the the only real way of stopping the virus from spreading keeping people upon so. Movie theaters face a problem because their business is packing people together and I I don't think even if they they had perfect moss compliance and with social distancing yet, they would be able to get enough bums on seats on a regular basis for movies to be particularly viable. and so the reality is, is that while this crisis continues to go on in it but to me, it's becoming clear that this is this is a thing we're gonNA be living with for a few years at least. Is. Community theaters operate in a way that that they can stay open and I don't think like can I think the? The mechanics of the movie industry a look at the the reason they're pushing hard for tenant. I'm talking about Warner Brothers now Christopher Nolan. Spent two, hundred, million dollars on that. You're a big chunk of that money is marketing and they need to get it back and that means they need to have this. These comedies big opening weekends with a long tail and.

It was this diarrhea killed more people two hundred years ago than almost anything. Yeah. Now Little Hill and we're fine. Yeah. As, well, the the other thing is that it meant going into all spill in the covid situation, which is interesting, but they actually had that really well sorted now, they just my dentist I told you that you know I had some dental work done some pretty serious dental work and you know before you even walk in the building, they're coming out to take your temperature and asking you some questions and. Exactly what they did for us and I like that to be on it I, want to I'm not worried about me because I take my temperature for two days and actually might temperatures usually lower than the average human I don't know what's up with that I'm usually under. Like I've been at ninety, six six. Ninety, six, ninety, seven, one, the the I read I read something A. Couple of a couple of months back. They said actually they think that the Average, shall we use his wrong because it went when it was when when it was first taken, the thermometers went as accurate. They either win is accurate and also the changes in temperature that everyone goes through during the day wouldn't really understood so. You know nowadays I find that unless. I mean, they weren't even talk about you being favorite unless it's like at least one half degree centigrade above the national averages But this was one of the things yesterday's that Charlotte had had a temperature. So they were very cautious with as they. She had a separate one, they put anybody. Even though is irony assessment triage and all that they they put on the separate ward and a separate room for anybody who had a temperature in cases of Covid here say they went mixing all the people good. One of those people that you don't have code, but you've got an infection like she does now you're put on the word with other people covet now no this this was this was the yeah. But the when it was award, it's all separate rooms. It's Ashi on award way share that was precisely the thing normally in accent in the UK, you go to a Sadler as you've seen them on the other side, those cubicles with the curtains that come around but you know actually physically separated from the other people. That's where you would normally go for accent emergency that because of covid they base anyone in temperature goes into a world where we have separate rooms for everybody. And and that basically Yukon can't go anywhere until I tell you can go. So you all complete gaslight did not have to se. `Ok never seen all spills cleaned. Enough spent a of time in all spills with my kids over the years and. The. Cleaning regime has really been up which is. A good thing that be they should awards been not really. Really clean here in the US. Yeah. The no hidden here. Are they they switch trim? They switch from the nurses cleaning them about twenty five years ago to contract cleaners and the way contract cleaning. Gaza courses the goes to the contract cleaning with the lowest price and then you get the people who are. The least interested in doing a good job and so you end up with lousy cleaning. It's A. Cleaning and hospitals always been a very serious thing here in the US. I'm sure there are some older hospitals that aren't the best but most of the hospitals that I've ever been in. I've always been exceptionally clean. Yeah. So anyway on. Cutlass. Let's talk about some geeky stuff. This is Let's stick with Kobe situation going on. This is kind of bothered me.

That's a lot better than I would have done. the the two of them isolated a clean and set up a factory for its extraction in Paris. And this made it possible to eat slightly less tree bark, while attempting to not get malaria, which share a lot of people were very fond of. Meanwhile as this was happening, the Spanish colonies in south. America were fighting for their independence, and afterward they would attempt to control the lucrative sin Shona Industry by limiting or flat out outlawing the expectation of seeds and cuttings. Plants, but despite the price, all of the conquering empires, including the British were on board with Sin Kona, and Queen and used it to start a radical malaria in Europe throughout the eighteen hundreds, however, malaria was still huge problem in the tropics which is largely where the conquering empires were getting their conquer on because of sugar and other stuff sugar and this all came to a head in British run India during the early eighteen hundreds of people were taking daily doses of cleaning to prevent malaria because it's so bitter, folks were starting to mix it with sparkling water and a little bit of sugar, and thus tonic water was born. which brings us to the GIN and tonic? I it brings us to a word from our sponsor. I. I'm Bertam Date Thurston. I'm a writer, activist and comedian. I wrote a book called how to be blast gave a Ted talk about white people, calling the cops on black people for no good reason and feel like we're having a moment in the US right now. You probably feel as to. When officer Derek, Chev and killed George Floyd something in America broke. Where this moment goes! We can't say yet, but right now. Something big is happening involving race and in particular policing. So I'm going to try to explain it.

We're having a moment on the iheartradio APP apple podcast and wherever you get your podcast. Back! Thank you sponsor. Okay now that we've got a GIN. We've got our tonic. Where did the idea of mixing them come from? Well, it was kind of Mary poppins situation. A spoonful sugar helps the medicine go down. Around Eighteen, twenty five British soldiers in India started adding Jin to their daily required Quinine, tonic water, and also as an added bonus, the British news squeezed in some lime juice to prevent scurvy, and this is the nickname for the produce slimy comes from. Oh, I! Know I should have guessed that a long time ago. I feel very silly now. Okay, that's fine. by the eighteen forty S. the population in India was using in fact within seven hundred tonnes. In Kona per year to fight to fight malaria there, wow. And in eighteen, Fifty, eight, the British, took over governance of India from the British east India. Company following the violent support revolution also called the Indian meet Ni a bunch of other names, too, but those are. Those cover the basis with more British soldiers and their families, in India than ever the demand for tonic water increased, which led to harass bonds creation, the first commercial tonic water that same year, which you can still buy I've never heard of it means, and that led to Schweppes the Indian Queen Tonic in eighteen seventy, and both of these went on to find success outside of India in Britain as well, meanwhile Charles Ledger. Ledger an Englishman who became an pokka farmer in Peru, smuggled Sin Kona seeds out of Peru to his brother. During the eighteen sixties because at the time, it was still illegal to export the trees. Are the seeds break? He actually had a history of smuggling. He also smuggled a pokka out of the country. It was just a smuggler, apparently better at it than Han Solo. He didn't get caught. That's right. How Vergamo, GIN and tonic episode. anyway the British government would not by these these seeds that he that he smuggled out, but the Dutch government would end did and they said at plantations on Java which was one of their colonial outposts. And so by World War One the Dutch pretty much dominated the coining trade, and by the end of the century they controlled ninety five percent of the world's supply. That's quite quite large percentage. This epitaph reads by the way Charles. Ledger he gave coining to the world. And the GMT was also thought to play a role in world. War Two when the Japanese forces took over Java and all those in coconut plantations which equalled most of the world's supply in Nineteen Forty Two oh, according to Amy Stewart's book, the drunk botanist to protect absolutely want to read. The last American plane out of Indonesia had four million crain's seats on board, but to no immediate avail because the trees would take too long to grow to be of any use during the war. But that didn't stop the allies from planting trees in Africa same time putting scientists to developing a synthetic replacement. And both succeeded to this day Africa grows natural coining and the. Synthetic version is used in some prescriptions because it's still used as an anti malarial. And for some other things, but that's different episode. Entirely it is, it is that's pretty much the history of the GIN and tonic. We obviously. As always had to shorten it especially. We didn't talk about how you still thin or can it do that?

"Good evening and welcome to the baugh tonight. We're going to do something a little different. I'm not going to mix you a particular cocktail but instead walk you through one particular spirit and what better spirit to start with the Chin before there was Jin the Dutch distilled. Another juniper base spirit known as he ain't never in English you might call this gender or Geneva you can still buy it today in both an old style and a more modern style. That is closer to GIN. This drink was originally given to Dutch. Troops as medicinal ration and gained popularity among English troops when fighting Louis the fourteenth France by the time William of Orange became king of England a shorter name. Jin was being used by the English soldiers. It is also responsible for the term Dutch courage as a shot of giannetta before battle gave the Dutch soldiers courage to fight. It was in London though. The Jin found its home with lax distillation laws in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The British capital experienced a gin craze and London dry. Gin was eventually born. Cheap readily available. Jin led to drunkenness in the streets as well as underage drinking as Jin fully took hold gin joints allowed women drink alongside men and it was thought that this led to mothers abandoning their children and earning it the nickname mother's ruin at this point the equivalent consumption was two pints of Jin for every Londoner William hogarth created a set of prince cold beer street and gin lane at this time to showcase the evil of Jin compared to the happiness of beer. The continuing gin craze was having negative effects on the local populace with rising crime and violence. Leading to a movement to stop the prevalence of GIN. The following poem by Townley was presented with the print to help convince people to change the Law Jin cursed with fury fraught makes Human Race. Apprai- attended by deadly draft and steals our life away virtue and truth driven to despair. It's rage compels to fly but cherishes with hellish care theft murder. Perjury Damned Cup. That's on the vitals. Praise that liquid fire contains which madness to the heart conveys and rolls it through the veins to down on the evils of GIN. The government tried passing multiple laws. It wasn't until the so-called gin act in seventeen fifty one that they managed to curtail the problem. It prohibited selling to unlicensed merchants and put restrictions and high prices on retail licenses as an alternative t was encouraged as was drinking for men. Jin however began to be exported to the world on the back of the British Empire and the British Navy despite the ubiquity of London Dry Gin. He doesn't have a protected status. You of Brown's London Gin. A very specific on both the purity of the alcohol ninety-six percent alcohol by volume initially and then only from agricultural products and it was also have minimum. Ab thirty seven point. Five percent in the end product. If you're interested in the other provisions check the show notes for a link to laws but importantly none of these provisions covers the distillation location so you can happily stale London gin in Madrid all Luxembourg and still call it London Gin. The dry is optional. As far as protected Jin's go in the UK. It will likely surprise you that there's only one. Pm Jin while the distillation rules very similar to those of London. Gin they must be produced in the port town of Plymouth. It's not a surprise. That Plymouth with its links to the navy has famously good gin. At the moment the only distiller is the black fries. Distillery THAT MAKES THE FAMOUS PLYMOUTH. Gin Aptly named indeed one of my earliest reviewers is of the Plymouth distillery tour. I heartily recommend anyone visiting the South West of England with a few hours to spare further afield another protected. Jin takes us to Germany. Despite my many travels across Germany I only encountered Stein hak-jun last year as part of a Roth a generous leaving gift. I was presented with a delightful bottle of sixty year. Old Schlichter Jin. Despite being juniper heavy Jin it has a much smoother taste than London dry and no citrus flavor at all there are currently only two manufacturers and operation. But it's definitely a unique. Jin that is worth seeking out. The smoothness makes it drinkable on. Its own or is a good base for the more ingredients. Heavy gin based cocktails. Although I don't think I'd waste the sixty year old variant cocktail. It's definitely worth enjoying on. Its own as I'm doing in the BAA rights now in more recent is you will have seen a veritable boom in the production of Jin while. Gmt's have never truly left us. And John has been poorly. Maligned is the drink of the middle aged as unexciting since around. Twenty ten the thoughts distilling process leads to quick innovation. You can distill gin from the initial alcohol and around eight hours and so you can integrate varieties far foster them whiskey or any other spirit that requires aging. This is seen an inevitable. Uptaken GIN drinking as it can be flavored fashionably and there's plenty of it about the GMT which has never truly left us. Come back to leading to a requisite boom and tonic varieties. There really is something for everyone in the Japan market. These days pairing a particular. Jin's flavors teutonic can be quite the art. There are now a number of Jin delivery services to send you measures of different Jin's to try alongside the boast tasting notes whether it be Jin works. Well with tonic a particular mix of Rosemary and lemonade or just best enjoyed over. Ice The standard. Gmt can overpower the taste of Gin with will that Queen so does definitely worth investigating. Oh Pallet with a small soup song of Jin served of rice will perhaps in a cocktail that brings the flavor to the four which brings us to the humble Martini. A perfect Martini should be made by filling a glass with Jin then waving it in the general direction of Italy. No coward if you do want a cocktail to showcase your favourite gin. You can't go far wrong with the Martini. Traditionally a mixture of GIN and the move that is stirred not shaken. Mr Bond you can limit the Vermouth to ensure that you can enjoy the taste of unique modern Jin now. Don't get me wrong. A GIN and tonic. Another excellent libation. But you need to Catholic match that tonic to the Jin career. They want to bring the Jin to the four the Martini as the way to go though I suppose you could just drink neat gin. As we've discussed I might recommend that you at least do that on the rocks. Though at that point you're surely just an olive away from an old coward. Martini might as well head.

"It's easy to think that the current Gina Boom in Britain or GINA's are some want to call. It would have been going on for long. But actually it's a prissy recent phenomenon. And the Genie Brent zips Matthias much to do with it seeps. Matthias been celebrating. Its tenth birthday this year a bit earlier I met Sam goals worth go phones roof. The distillery and mustard is dealer jared brown sam start by explaining how he and he's business partner. Fairfax Hall decided to launch the company. The idea that came when I was living in America and I saw this amazing so kroft movement. This sort of seismic activity of consumers looking very differently differently. You know how they can seem they wanted to see where it was made and how it was made and actually bite by whom it was made. That was really really important. And then you come back to London. We were from Fairfax and I grew up together in Coleman he was even the US during different thing me and we we. We look back at London. which was the home of GIN is historical birthplace of gin and there was only really one single brand operated distillery and we were so convinced that consumer movements of how people on picked brands and shows brands that mindset would exist in in London Magen an having wonders theory? That was not good enough. That was never going to satisfy a need state in London pundits who were desperate for anticipate and storytelling. And so with that remind thefts and I said Bite trying to establish GIN distillery again but this time having yet accessible having people come in and learn about how jen is made because I think it was the time a great gap of knowledge I think from what Jin was and how it was made and so we quit our jobs we sold flats and we went all in on that and so we went to the government. We said we would like licensed to set up a GIN distillery and they said no exact with is that you AH. We couldn't believe it you know by. Then we'd jobs with salt flats we all in and so we have a very quickly screw around nothing there's the adage of you know if there's ever been a really good good idea and business someone's already had it before you and I actually. That was definitely the case with Jim. I see but they haven't pursued that. No they've taken. That known walked away so there was a law that said you couldn't own a gin distiller in London. Unless you're still was bigger than eight hundred hectolitres which was Y- prohibitively large. So we set might on a you know a year and a half journey of trying to overturn that law which long story short we did. We managed I get up. MP's and and the light to change and in the two thousand and seven Finance Act. The no change wants theory and SIP. Smith at that point became the first GIN distillery in London for two hundred years. And that was when we met jared and has been all sort of true north ever since well if you recap what's been happening in the last ten years they would have be the biggest milestones. The I was getting up and running and getting a still in London when we began. It was just three of us in a tiny west London garage. Export was outside the twenty-five distribution moped. We blew our AD budget on the sticker for that moped. Oh ped- the early customers still remember Sam arriving case of Gin one helmet under the other and to go from that to being in fifty five countries. Now still fifty these county but yeah I mean I think that was a massive milestone. We won some huge awards awards along the way I certainly look at Cyp Smith and I think when I think about what's really distinctive and stand out about it you know notwithstanding the the gin which we've always made it used to be in the way it should be. It's our team. I think we've been very good at developing a really amazing team. Kroft agenda tell stories. I think that's been a prolific also. So what we've seen. The last ten years has been a massive massive boom when it comes to the gene industry not only in the UK but internationally enormously. You've been playing a big part in this. Why do you think this happened now? I think there are lots of different influences and forces that have moved in category. Ready to where it is today I think first of all I referenced that seismic activity of consumers that shift in the way they buy and the motivations for you know taking away the layers of the onion nion to understand really what's in Nebraska. Why brand exists in? Its reason for being. I think that's part of it. You've got bartenders prolific. Botton's Auden's which is now I think since we start really become a true true recognized profession whereas I think you know twenty years ago it wasn't quite as exactly now. It is prolific global profession and quite rightly. Say it's an art form. And I think the direction which bartenders mixologist. Call Them. What you will they have pushed the boundaries of Gina's which way that people are really interested interested curious and excited about it? I I think there was a pent up. Need Jin to do more in premium is. This was exactly why it was good timing. I'm for us. Frankly when we came along people were getting bored with vodka. The Vodka Soda was ubiquitous. Drink and people ready to actually taste something and so to come. Along with eight true uncompromising craft gin made as it used to be made on a corporate still was is a huge leap forward from vodka. Now there were. I believe twelve distilleries making Jim. In Britain at that time primarily on the basis of the SIP Smith legal work. There is now a thousand brands of GIN in Britain. That's here it seems huge until you look at Scotland where I believe. There's a ten two thousand really recognized labels whiskey out of the total of one hundred thousand so Jin used to have at one point about equal standing on the shelf with risky when we started. Walk into a bar. There'd be fifty whiskeys and forge ins and the bartender would immediately CEO. We don't need another Jin. Considering the equal standing that existed back in the day. Do you think there's a risk that people may decide to go for something else. Leave Jin again yeah. Well I think there's always there's always a risk and I think I think what's actually happening today that consumers actually have more of a repertoire of drinks that they drink neurologist. Okay I'm around drinking or a drink actually what you people share even worse. Give it a round that actually in turtle in aggregate drinking and consuming last alcohol. But what they're doing is expanding their range that broadening their mine and trying to get more experiences. What what they drink? And I think that's what six month fits in so perfect because as more people come in they're accepting Jin as part of that said and we tell such a great story. I think people looking for stories exactly the way. So you've been sharing stories as William you've been sharing inspiration as part of your ten th anniversary celebrations. You released a book. It's called tape one hundred gene cocktails only three ingredients. Whatever made Sir Takeaways for of that book this goes back to the fundamentals tolls of creating great drinks? You don't need a load of odd ingredients. You just need the right ingredients in the right proportion Russian and that's what this book is about. It goes beyond just having recipes. It goes into really the fundamentals of what it takes to create a great drink of balancing these ingredients of working them and also of creating personal drinks out of this foundation of primarily great classics. But also some of the new drinks that have come up within the distillery. What kind of evolution has there been when it comes to say Jean Coke folktales? How experimental do these recipes for example? Get oh I would say that you'll find some very experimental drinks in here but you'll find that they are the ones that were very good. Perfection is achieved in the words of Antoine to Sun Tzu Career author of the Little Prince. Perfection is achieved. Not when there's nothing more to add when there's nothing left to take away and that's really what this book is about is finding great drinks and some non in traditional ingredients as a historian of drink of course a lean toward a lot of the traditional as well can make samples. Oh the bee's knees cocktail tale a favorite example. Gin Lemon honey. That's it right now if you look on Wikipedia it says that it was invented by a speakeasy bartender tinder. In the states during prohibition to cover up the taste of bad gin which is what drink writers rate when they don't want to just say I have no clue. The truth. Truth is that drink was invented in Paris in the nineteen twenties in a women's only bar by a widow named Mrs. Jj Jj Brown of Boulder and Paris. It took me while to figure out who she was. It turns out that she was immortalized on Broadway in nineteen sixty and by Hollywood in nineteen sixty four as the unsinkable. Molly Brown married to a poor gold miner and Colorado. WHO's the largest gold vein in history? And then she survived the titanic and was partying on both continents. Amazing amazing stories. Amazing just one of the stories that you'll find in this book. I tell you what I was thinking about. Marcus this book really is for people like me. North jarred he may have been the principal author of it but actually did book is designed for people who can't really make that sophisticated a cocktail. I really can't and so you know this is sort of the Jamie Oliver of the GIN cocktail world weather. So it's really simple. The ingredients never far away from you and you can good at home making it and actually I think these days things do need to be made simple for people use again. I speak very much for me. This book is designed for me in Kapit Guide to making. We'll talk about what people want. And what people need How do you see the future of the industry but what is happening over there? Do people want different. I kind of James. What did they actually want? It vary from one country to another. Will I think it does. I think with globalization nights all come a little bit smaller and say the influences of very prolific Olympic. Do think this I think there's a real danger in the world of Jin. Globally about where it goes from here I think the different names of Jin methodologies Adagios of genetic ingredients that are going into Jin threaten the very fabric of gin and how it is perceived and whether there becomes sort of fatigue in the way some people look at it at the moment. We're not seeing that and actually I think what we're hearing. You know jared and I have the the amazing provisionally travel well talking about listening into retailers and consumers alike who are saying you know juvenile would be a part of my life I. It does get confusing. Can you help me navigate gin and actually we we always bring them back to our classic uncompromising London Dry Gin which is the sort of the base an epicenter of all jains and actually helps tell the story of what a True Chin is and actually I think sometimes the category does and should be simplified. A little bit to really help understand what it is would it really stands for because I think there are some risks there Jin's that are risking people. Go Walk Him on. What is Jin today? And they're all that many rules and regulations around it so there's some self regulation people talking about bringing in. We will never as a brand SIP. Smith ever ever compromise from our original of making gender wage in used to be made and the way it should be made and so I think people will always I hope have faith that in with will be one of those beacons shining lights out that I to help navigate a really exciting category and now zips me this available in about fifty five countries. What kind of future planets do you have? Is it about taking over new markets or digging deeper in the existing once or you know if we had planned to sit down here ten years later and say we wanted to be in fifty countries. We didn't globalization. I think just the way direction the world has gone has taken us. They're smaller and it's easy to get products now being forced reading letting we'd ever thought about being the size that we are all within reach that we are. It's awesome that we are and it's really exciting. I think for us. What we must never do is take off ally of the ball? We've never compromise. Never changed the way we make it even though we've got these really exciting growth plants. I think it's about being deeper more meaningful and establishing shing really distinctive points in people's lives to tell stories of general.

I mean, the western abstemious Pearson's main women men and women, adults and children. Children would have a what we're doing about your age. Eight hundred funeral. Young kids would have a glass of beer for breakfast, small business so is weaker than what we might drink now, but everybody drank. They drank throughout the day. Washer was very bad and they're lots and lots of brewed beverages spirits weren't drunk so much, but you you'd find people from every age, both both genders and every class drinking quite a range of alcoholic drinks. The lots of things which we didn't have really drink very much anymore, various kinds of punches, and Cordial's and mixed drinks, but drinking was quite socially stratified. So there'd be l. houses where which were run full the pool by the pool where you drink beer or ale. And then in the middle that be taverns, which served wine, and they're mostly frequented by the gentry. And then in which served wine, an wide range of drinks and also food. The drinks might be Cordial's. They might be, they might be spurts, but ridden. Strong spirits weren't really drunk regularly in Britian until William of of our brings them in unloaded June, come into the genie's not quite though the end of the seventeenth century. It comes in with William of orange ethics, United sixty eight. He starts bringing it in and British had also drunk some gin and also brandy, brandy, confusing term. It comes from the Dutch, the burnt wine, brandy wine. So it means any distilled spirit and the range of spirits which had all sorts of different favoring aniseed was very popular one and the verse names Akwa vita Akwa, forties. Sue people were drinking spirits, but not in very large constitutes because they weren't very, they weren't made in large contractors wasn't impression in, let's go Europe for the sake of ease the this island was a sort of rocking boat of drunkenness, I'm yes, but also the British referred to the dodgers as drunks. I mean, everybody called everybody else a drunk. There's, there's certainly of. Hearts, drinking culture. So it wasn't just that everybody drank at low levels throughout the day, but that gentlemen and people associated with the two main political groups, the weeks and the Torres or the successes of the Puritans which drink at to toast there declare heroes, and there are stories of returning Cavaliers, dragging people off their horses and forcing them to drink a tastes to the king. And if they didn't, then they'd be doctrines and beaten up said, there's, there's a a real hard drinking culture. People would deliberately get drunk very often through toasting feasting clump making before we go much. Can you tell us what you mean by people? By people? I mean, all classes. I mean this research, there's a lotta people in all classes were at the booze from breakfast onwards. Yes, right of quite definitely. Was he anything? Was that a any idea that beer could be better for you than water? Because water was like WC fields. You never know where it's being, but apart from that, it was polluted. And was that a knowledge of that? There wasn't always there isn't a real knowledge of infection, but the water might well be because running water is very hard to come by. So the water might be standing and you could tell that it was it was yucky is pretty unpleasant stuff. And I think also there's a sense that there had health giving properties said that it was good for you in it. Self right hundred McCain. How did William orange trains drinking? He came in in the glorious revolution of sixteen eighty. At one of the most glorious things seem to be and was bringing gin. Well, I think there's three ways really that William changed drinking culture in Britain. And the first most obvious thing was in sixteen ninety. So he's hip for two years. He's already been at war and is war in any case in his own European was and he brings an act for to encourage the distilling of liquors in Britain, deliberate in England, especially but deliberately to counteract the fact that he pretty much banning fringe brandy from coming in. So he's opened the door to any distance who would like to set up. And the problem with the act was that it didn't have any regulation in involved in the in the act. So there was no regulating trade. And so. Shoot, you can set up a distillery..
