"At novels and another cultural artifact is that historians have noted that the great pandemic of 1918, even though it cost so many lives. Was sort of quickly for gotten after the fact talk to me about this idea that in many ways, even though the effects of the pandemic we're really horrific, it faded from public view at least relatively quickly. It did, And it's one of the things that I think historians of kind of puzzled over and even marveled about. Some people will simply dismiss it and say, Well, this is what people do. HL Macon wrote that the human mind always tries to expunge the intolerable from memory justice. It tries to conceal it while current In fact, it seems to have been subsumed very easily under the memory of the war. It did happen concurrently initially, and the war was a much better story for the American people at this time. Remember the flu would be to admit to the lack of control that people had had over their own health. It would be to admit that the United States was not necessarily all powerful, but was like everywhere else in the world, subject as victims to something beyond their control. You describe songs that have been sung about the flu, especially in the tradition of the blues? Yes, one of the rare places that we do see, the story of the flu told are in blues lyrics, and I think it's because this was actually a genre that had space in it. For the kind of message that this was a horrific event through which people had suffered and which left in its aftermath. People lost, confused and and and very frightened. Asi Jenkins had a remarkable song called The 1919. Influenza Blues was 1919..

"And you may not be able to add information. Here it comes. You ready for it? You may not be able to add information about the booster shots that you're surely going to be required to take. Or be recommended to take In other words, it's not over. It never. It will never be over. The U. N pointed out recently. That there are like What a million seven viruses a million 700,000 viruses that are known and 850,000 of those are harmful to human beings. Right? So where will it end? We're now seeing all these variants of these viruses, and there are experts that air saying within the next nine months to a year Of the prevailing vaccines that are available today will be absolutely worthless and you will have to get others You'll have to get boosters and and boosters on top of that. So don't laminate those cards yet because they will be obsolete. You know, this really is to me in my mind, At least in my p A called action. How about we start strengthening human beings against viruses? Viruses are going to go away. They're gonna always have changing. Changing environment There's always going to be variants. But we know that when you change the internal ecology, the human body, it becomes more resilient and more resistant to these viruses in the first place. And that's why people who have health concerns. Are those that are targeted by the viruses. The elderly. The infirm people with diabetes, people with obesity people with underlying health conditions. Those of the people we need to help. Those of the people we need to focus on in terms of their health and getting them well. And providing education and information to them so that they're less likely like the rest of us who are healthy and will, uh, will survive a covert hit, and we're all going to have a code with hit. It's just gonna be like the common cold or the common flu. It's just a matter of when not if. Are you ready? What do you know? What should you know? And hopefully over the last year, we have provided plenty of information along those lines. And if you're new to the program, stay listening.

"But somehow if it's a radical it seems to me which they claimed it was. It would be eradicated i they reintroduced it and i say that because there's a number of news stories that came out recently where the kids got the measles vaccine and then got measles and then there was a bunch of other kids who had the vast settled science by the way but not yes but not the booster and they got measles. When did a booster become a thing for measles. So i i most of the opinion that go by especially if he can't get sued you take this and i don't want to sound like a conspiracy nut but from a business standpoint your big meet you make these these vaccines and now you're noticing in washington state in particular people aren't taking this shot right. Although it's a shot. I'd recommend but under these circumstances i may be. I'd wait because the people up there that's where it started to break out and again is reported that it was a kid who just got the shot got measles started spreading it around as a radical disease eradication. They start spreading it around now. Everybody has get all freaked out. They're going to get them back on the shot in the bandwagon for shots. I just find the something scammers about this whole measles outbreak. That if you're if you can't get sued. I can put live virus in the thing injected to a few dozen kids some areas where we know.

Messenger RNA technology might kick-start a new age of vaccines
"The covid nineteen vaccines from. Madeira and pfizer are in many ways. Modern miracles as you know by now they were developed using technology called 'em aren a which basically gives the body some instructions to create antibodies for the novel coronavirus. It's the first time a vaccine has been developed in this way and now that we have this technology we can start using it on all kinds of viruses like flu. Your days are numbered. Andrew hessel is a geneticist and microbiologist. Well because amarnath vaccines ultimately use our bodies as a pharmaceutical plant. We can target essentially any virus. We can make any type of an antibody to it and so it opens up the possibilities for making vaccines for for emerging viruses. Like like zeka. Even a bola. But i think the one that will get really targeted in the short term is simply flew We we have an annual flu season that for the last hundred years we haven't been able to get head of and i think this is the technology that finally puts the nail in the coffin. We think about viruses as part of life. But how big a deal is it to imagine that we could target this many viruses so precisely in the future. I think it's a total game changer. Not just because this is a disease that causes suffering and death but it's been the biggest economic push like we realize how important it is to have some sort of bio protection now in the world. Because we've never had a new multi trillion dollar effect knocking on from a an outbreak.

Where's the value in NFTs
"You first saw the acronym ft show up in your tweets you got as far as not at four. And then you realize you're quickly going down the wrong path and trying to decipher it. Nfc stanford non fungible tokens now from there. If you're like me you thought it had to do with mushrooms. Maybe mario brothers. I don't know so then you read a paragraph of an article got bored or confused and moved on with the knowledge that all of your assumptions were wrong. But then you didn't actually replace it with any real knowledge okay. And so that was fine until you started seeing f. T. everywhere and you realize that maybe you should learn what it means and also you have a podcast taping coming up so here we are. And it's not that ludicrous bro. Stay with me all right. Mitchell mitchell clarke wrote a delightful article on the verge explaining t so i'm largely relying on that also wired new york times and a few other places. Let's go all right. Non fungible tokens are essentially a way that you can claim ownership of a digital thing. So think music art tweets yes. These are all reproducible. But so is a postcard of the mona lisa. So non fungible tokens exists on a blockchain at this point. Mostly a theory but others are getting on board and there are online marketplaces like open sea bull and fifty gateway where you can buy and sell the official ownership of the digital thing again. We're talking music video. Art animated gifts for artists provides a new way to sell your work and you can also set it up. So that you get a little kickback. Every time the nfc changes hands with a new owner. Lots nice so right now. You're like bro. Why would someone pay millions of dollars for an animated gif when you can just download it for free again. Why would someone bhai a monet painting for millions when you can get it on a mug from the gift shop for fifteen dollars so it all comes down to the basic tautology that some things have value just because someone decides it has value now for some people the value might be bragging rights to that end. You get to buy an nf t fred digital drawing of a cat because you are looking for a new way to show people. You are wealthy for others. Value might be about your phantom or support of an artist or musician. Kings of leon grimes dead mouse and many others have released. And fte's for music and art and for others. The value might be purely speculative. You're buying the nf t for digital drawing up a cat because you think it will rise in value as many other people agree. They want that authentic digital drawing a cat. And you're like seriously digital yes. Ten years ago. A guy named chris torres created the animated. Meam niane cat. You know it as the flying cat with a pop tart for a body and it's leaving a rainbow trail behind as soon as you google. It you're going to be like. Oh cat i totally know what you're talking about. So in february torres created an nf t version and put it up for auction and it sold for nearly six hundred thousand dollars following a last minute bidding frenzy other f- tease out there. William shatner is dental x ray digital baseball cards photos of lindsay lohan. And the first tweet. By jack dorsey just sold for two point. Nine million. don't feel too bad because the proceeds argos support a charity. So there's that and if t. Are definitely booming right now with probably more speculators than collectors and fans driving up prices but experts looking beyond the boom. See a great opportunity for a new way to guarantee authenticity. So for example nike already has a patent to create. Nfc's attached to shoes to guarantee their authenticity. Called crypto. kicks so when you consider that. A pair of air jordan twelve flu games are worth more than one hundred thousand dollars. Yeah i think. I want an fte with that purchase. Please and maybe you're still skeptical like a bunch of people in the comments of the articles. I read but seriously. How is this all that new and different. It's not like people buy sneakers art or baseball cards for the value of the materials themselves. They buy them for the aesthetics. The design the rarity as the new york times quoted. Marc andreessen. ben. Horowitz a two hundred dollar pair of sneakers is like five dollars in plastic. You're buying a feeling and right now the feeling that. Fte's is similar to one a stamp collector or baseball card collector or art collector or fashion. Or even a speculator might feel. It's that feeling that you are special because you own something someone else wants.
Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo reopens to the public
"WGN, the fairly new director of the Lincoln Berg Zoo with the exciting news that the Lincoln Park Zoo is open. You need to make reservations, though, which is true for just about anywhere you go right now. But I'll tell you, you can find them and it's it's worth visiting. Can you go inside buildings or Outside on Lee. I note one point We've been to the zoo several times during this pandemic on and off, and it was only outside. But I has that changed. That has changed very recently. We were given some new guidelines operate under by the state and we are able to open our buildings at a limited capacity. We're being very methodical. We do We use science and everything that we do here at the zoo, and so we're Easing into opening buildings kind of a building at a time. So currently we have two buildings that were opening when we have staffing for it, and then we're going to be starting to open more buildings as we continue to move through the spring. So I love this text that I just received. I happen to know the answer Just a bit, But I'm sure you can do better than me cans. Kines. What was what was that? I said, will be all. Of course you get kids. Ooh! Animals Get Cove. It 19. Uh, yeah. Do animals can get Cupid 19. There's been a few zoo animals around the country that have gotten covert 19. We likely have not had any of the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo. Test positive for covert 19. But we, as all accredited zoos do around the country used personal protective equipment in order to ensure I know we're all familiar with face masks and other personal protective equipment. Because of our own personal use. We use that here at the zoo all of the time, especially with animals touches nonhuman primate center susceptible to many of the same diseases that we are, and it turns out the animals at The zoo's that have been diagnosed with covert 19 are, I think was that the San Diego Wildlife Park where some of the guerrillas were diagnosed lowland gorillas with covert 19? And also Malayan Tigers, and one of the species must been Asian lions at the Bronx Zoo. If I recall also a zoo in either Tennessee or Kentucky had a big cat that had it. But the good news is all of these animals have survived that have have have had it aspires. I know anyway, across the country, And as you say zoos are so careful anyway, particularly with nonhuman primates. Well, before anyone ever heard of covert 19 you you didn't want those great apes to get a cold. Which could be passed on because they can get it except sometimes it turns into a more serious respiratory disease in gorillas in particular, so it's for a very long time. Zoos have been very careful, correct. That is exactly right. We've been careful for a very long time with good reason. We want to make sure that they don't get any cold or flu or any bugs that we have the we've been protecting them by using our personal protective equipment for Decades now, so I said, going
US sees lower death rates among children
"Rates for Children are down for about everything and for Corona virus, Except for the rare obese adolescents seem to be the patient that would pump the Children's hospital Michigan or another pediatric facility and have a bad outcome now bad outcome, meaning that they would need to go to the ICU and that they might need to be on a breathing machine. We're not usually talking about somebody passing away that that's a rare rare exception in pediatric doctor Rudy Valentini, chief medical Officer of Children's Hospital of Michigan, says the near disappearance of the flu corresponds with the small number of coronavirus cases and deaths among Children were being so few cases of viral infections in general, because I believe distancing and mask and sanitation of your hands. Nobody behaves like they used to call the small numbers of kids who have gotten Corona virus. Ah, higher percentage of cases are among minorities spread with people who live in close proximity. That's why we talk so much about distancing while we talk about masking, they think about if you have a household With four people in it for household is more densely populated in that tends to be less affluent communities to this could still spread the virus. So any one of us you, me or any child could have covert infection today not realized it we call it pre symptomatic and actually be infectious for one or two days before we become symptomatic. And if you're very infectious, early on, and so, yes, that's definitely been shown that Children can do that. But in a year marked by pandemic catastrophe, the lower childhood deaths from all causes is a welcome. Change. I'm decay thinner for WJR Health

Biden kicks off campaign to sell the $1.9 trillion stimulus outside Philadelphia
"Mary and you were also there yesterday. For the other event that that joe biden had i don't want i don't want to close without commenting on it because you know it was pretty weird odd. This this is the launch of the big stimulus. Celal president of business. We're we were expecting. I don't know something but you take a brief listen to some of what we got her more purchase mean. Maybe it's what was going on with this. I mean it was it. Just it just seems so strange. It was a little bizarre right. I mean certainly. Yesterday was the first time. The president will travel outside of washington to sell this bill right. He's he's outside of philadelphia in pennsylvania. Talking to a very small small business owners minority owned business. And this was a chance for dino. Come out get out i. i'll just speak to some real americans about this bill. Tout how it's going to be impacting. The whole day was focused on the small business components of this relief. Bill many look around that the shop a little bit gives them remarks. The whole thing. I think was less than five minutes. You know. they fired up the big bird. Flu all the way up to pennsylvania and it's just it was. I mean you could blink and miss it. There were no formal remarks. There is no real interaction With the business owners except to sort of say. Hey you got any questions for me. Obviously they praised the bill and thanked. The president for is efforts to help them out financially. But in terms of you know promising a big sales pitch in this campaign kind of landed with a thud. That said on the flip side. Of course you know. The president has given many speeches in the last several days. Touting this bill he's got his vice president the first lady second everybody's fanned out across the country sort of promoting this bill. But it just. I don't know it didn't seem to meet the moment. It certainly wasn't as it was billed. Bizarre joe biden really likes getting out and talking to people you know something. He's commented on missing a lot especially during the pandemic and being kind of shut in the white house. So i don't know the whole thing was just a little odd and he was clearly still thinking about his interview with george stephanopoulos. George george got

Google CCAI with Antony Passemard
"We're gonna be talking about google contact center. And i'm not just saying this because you're here on an is honest truth. I've been hoping one in this composition for a long time because our history. If you go back far enough is rooted in alexa. Google assistant and the voices and spirits. And we've been working in this all contact center environment and customer services for a while and then we see. Google released this kind of suite of tools. The seems to have in some parts from history with with google assistant and all this kind of stuff in very similar technologies. and we've been been exploring it for awhile and excited to see where it goes and what you're up to so thank you much for joining us citing citing. Yeah there's a lot of history there with assistant and yeah we can talk about. It's it's an interesting story but it. What's what's interesting is that it's really exhilarating in the last two years. It's been pretty pretty impressive. What we've been able to deliver and really happy to release a led technology now until it's all coming together and we're seeing great results so happy to cheryl that nice. What's what's what's who is it. That says underwent a plan comes together is bigger is gonna plan comes together nicely. Well well on any join those. So you the head of compositional nine contact center at google cloud jonah. Tell the people tune in a little bit about what the rule is what you do on google cloud and how that relates to i own the product the product suite basically. So whatever touches conversational. I for google cloud which is now set of a set of product so some underlying technologies like the speech to text. Api or text to speech api. Some of the amelia technologies that we have but on top of that really. What's interesting. is the various products. No dalek show. For cell surrey's channel bots voice and chat the agent assists to help human agent do their job better and getting sites. And what's going on in real time as they were talking to customers and the latest one is insights which is coming verviers soon which is about understanding all your contact center and everything that's happening they are so it's kind of a product suite under the umbrella. Ci and yes. I own that. I have a team of product. Managers that Do a job at delivering on those products from helping drive a change in the market with this nice so i was just trying to put the lincoln in lincoln. So you mentioned the Some of it has a history with google assistant. Let's unpack that a little bit. So where i come from. And what relationship. If any have with google assistant technologies it started about four years ago. I think some somewhere around that where we did assistant actually did an acquisition of a company. Api and the. I was A tool to help people build better. Google assistant interactions turned out. That in google cod. We were really interested with this technology and the cloud. Google customers actually started using piano the i to build bots for arna a prize and it became dialogue so and so we started planning a little bit working toward more entreprise use cases with alec flow as as assistant was working on their own on their own path and were sharing a lot of the nfl. You underlying the technology but as time passed we so much more traction in the enterprise and had to separate ourselves a little bit in terms of how you manage the the system itself and elliot's fairly common but the system you know the the designer the interaction the web hoax infrastructure the security level privacy that we could provide with allah flu can a diverse and about i would say about two years ago. We started embarking on a new journey toward larger on it so we had their early over. I think we have about one point. Five million developers now in dallas so signed up but we saw that big move award. Large large companies like verizon and likes that wanted to have a lot more flexibility and being able to handle more complex. Use cases with their varietal agents Migrated toward what we just launch in. General is but at the same time we expanded toward agent assists and insights we added to the portfolio so the history starts at a piano. The i four years ago. But i think they're somewhat of a split about two years ago to address the large enterprise cases those use cases and so for those who you mentioned. It's this this dialogue floor the cx was created. There is agent assist olympics and insights. Those are the those are the the full men compo- insects out yet but inside his common. That's right isn't it. Yeah so. It's a early preview right now. It's coming on in in In preview the states kind of bit is a new term. Like we don't have alpha beta anymore. We have previews and j preview previews coming out. I think in the next month and now it takes care is incites is no analysis product per se. It is it is inside. So floyd assists on sites had the three main main products. And i'm accents. Okay then so. Donald flows has been used a lot for goodness actions as well as chump dot says wella's contact center etc for those up in the day a more than likely have experienced dialogue floor in some shape or form. So what is it. The drove the need for dialogue floor. Cx whetted cx come from. Sussex is more graphical. It's it's slightly different to. Es what's the history. Yeah that's actually very important. So essentially asks is basically dial for the daleks with everybody knows that the prior version she will that was meant to build simpler interactions. So one or two turns. Maybe three turns if you if you really need to go a little deeper but some people have called it like slot failing type of bots little bit of that no s something getting tencent and entities and do something where the work or cloud function fairly simple.

Alex Douzet on How to Maintain Consumer Visibility In the Wake of Budget Cuts
"Everyone next tuesday and thank you for joining me today. I'll be teaching you about what you can do to maintain your company. Consumer emits budget cut. We're not lunch. Pumpkin pet insurance in the middle of covid get a very limited marketing budget. So we had to come up with creative way to optimize strategy. Many of tricks and tactics. I will discuss them in gaps today. So let's get into it. Start whenever you always tab a company start up. Budget cuts or positions are something that every company expense. It's essential paul of improving in going a business like it or not cuts are some time. You know that that's what we have to deal with at every company that had been part of. It's an issue contest so you just better be prepared for it. When times are tough one of the first area the companies often find himself making cuts all and ease the marketing budget and the advertising budget. It's a real double edged. Souls brand struggling often needs to do more with less marketing to raise consumer awareness but remain competitive. Advertising and publicity can also be very expensive. So what should you do well. They'll number of we. Companies and entrepreneurs can engage with consumer and customers and maintain visibility while also dealing with a very tight budgets. I and maybe the most important tool you have at your disposal all your your social media. Channels accompanies social media. Platform are key component of a brand identity is to first place consumer good to to interact with your business little by what's new and really understand how you companies responding to what's going on in the world i've put together. Three quick cost effective way to engage with an appeal to new and customers on social media the first one is incentives and giveaway consumers love creepy and swag if your company sells product or service tie it to an offer of free sample free trial or hosted giveaway to your gimmicky engaged with your audience that say moose hominem social media platform especially facebook instagram. I've complicated algorithm which actually prevent the majority of existing fans are followers from seeing content on the company post less pay facebook for that exposure. So one way to natural increase your social visibility resort having to pay facebook or instagram is to anchorage your fan people visiting your page to like common especially share your company incentive in giveaway on page whether than simply entering giveaway social reaction common increase oppose organic reach which means more people find out about. Yuki away all you incentive and wounds pay nothing for additional exposure and the basically a win win for everybody. Another approach coach is social group campaign. Studies shown that eighty seven percent of consumer will will purchase a product from a company that super bowls an issue that care about the social group campaign either way in which your brand utilize it social media platform to anchorage follower to post share or donate for specific cause or financial peak endeavor lunching. Such any city can often result in powerful consumer generate content while encouraging audiences to engage with your hand and do something meaningful at the same time when the and extorted punking veterinary network to utah financial. Hit we at pumpkin wanting to do something to help clinic still flu. So we came up with a campaign where we offer followers between each support their pets respective indians. We launch a social media campaign on instagram and facebook called off meow for vets in which pumpkin made a five nations to a clinic whenever someone take your favorite that and used the campaign hashtag you work incredible so well in fact that when we expanded our budget we actually expanded a budget. Extend initiative people were jumping into your poultry to should support for hotline workers. Another tactic east to leverage mike infants. So let me start by explaining. What is micro influencers. A micro influencers are people would generally have between the two thousand to maybe up to five hundred thousand follow on the respect. You've social media platform the highly engaged audience and push content. That's consistent was particularly niche such as wellness fitness food pets travel etc smaller. Infants can next sentence rules for expanding your reach in connecting new consumer in you with tantric way why law scale instruments and can run mini thousand of dollars focus many my code so off strolling dedicated following and then to be more willing to pose bohannon exchange for free product or service that they feel value these clauses require some trial and error but it can result in low cost white scale exposure so when we launched pumpkin we started by connecting with my coin from so with anywhere between ten thousand to maybe ninety one hundred thousand followers while somewhere still give the expensive all already. I exist existing account in working with competitor other were incredibly receptive and excited to work with us in exchange for free participation in a wellness program tapping into the smaller but very connected audiences we were able to achieve a free ability. Beauty among the wide range of consumer we otherwise will have to be to rich asians. Now that's switchgear another way to gonna reach. Audience and consumer visibility is to improve a company sir changing visible not to whether technical searching optimization also known as s e seo is active of increasing the quantity and the quality of traffic to your website to organics engine resorts searching. Google use complex algorithm to win content. That would be really to search query. Su is complicated but the simplest way to look at it especially with google is if google wants to display the best possible content to the social their rank them on a very to effector miserable well to social enjoy the content such as time spent on new site the bounce rate the referring domain the domains reputations since most consumers don't bother to read beyond the first or second page of search engine where you company rank is extremely important so some easy top level suggestion that can help you improve your view.

Traffic this is specially valuable in industry where paid advertising can be extremely competitive and therefore be extremely expensive creating content that drive user to size for free is a great pass to better overall possibility. Another tactique that. I would describe as between an seo tactics and also like golding brand of wellness east to conduct surveys. It's an excel no way to help increase awareness and issue since it can be used to gonna blast interest from high traffic media outlet
What a WoW virtual outbreak taught us about how humans
"Hit last year, people reacted in different ways from complete denial to volunteering to help others. Some people flouted the rules, while others didn't leave the house, and some even used it as an excuse to hurl racist insults and physically assault other people. These actions may have seemed unpredictable. But a group of epidemiologists was not surprised They'd seen this all play out in another pandemic in 2005. One that happened online in a video game called World of Warcraft, players there became infected with the virus due to a glitch in the software. Side fry producer Daniel Peter Smith is here to talk more about that. Hey, Daniel. Hey, John. So briefly. What is World of Warcraft for those who don't know? Yeah, it's one of the biggest online multiplayer games of all time. It's been around since 2004 and basically you're playing in this huge medieval fantasy environment with millions of other people across the world. You can play as an orc made warrior. That kind of thing so kind of dnd stuff. On Deacon, explore the world and fight monsters and go on quest with other people I've heard about it never played myself that this m pretty cool. So how did this all start with the epidemic in the game? Yes. So in 2005 Blizzard, the company who makes world of Warcraft they created a new challenge. And basically was you go to this one area you battle of big villain, which is called a bus. This big snake demon thing that would cast a spell on you. That gave you a kind of infection, And this infection was called corrupted blood and the small basically, just like slowly sapped your health away while you were fighting it. It would obviously affect you in battle. But once you defeated the boss, you could like go out into the main world and you're basically non infected anymore so individual players could get infected while battling the boss. But then how did the spread the other players? Great question. So there was a bug in the software where if you had a pet with you can have these like companion pets. Your pet would also get affected on when you left the area and went back to the main world. Pet continued to carry the corrupted blood infection, and it would spread it to other players and other characters in the game, and they would slowly die. So this is basically a computer virus that was acting like a real virus, right? And this sparked the interest of some epidemiologists who happen to be playing the game at the time, and I talked to Eric Molinski about this. He's the host of the podcast called Imaginary Worlds. Which is a show about how we create these worlds and where we suspend our disbelief. And he reported the story about this outbreak and how studying virtual epidemics can teach us how to deal with real ones. And I started by asking Eric how the virus started to spread in the world, and he told me that in a virtual world, it spreads very easily and very quickly. In the real medieval world, you know, plague would would travel about as fast as it is the horse But you know, in this magical medieval world, you can teleport back to cities. And a lot of these cities have what we call in PCs non playing characters, so it could be like a shopkeeper or guard or, you know, just sort of townsfolk in the background. But they all got infected with this thing. So they were walking around, infecting everybody else. A symptomatically, which is also a very weird thing, which has been which is not supposed to happen. And so that's another way that they disease spread really quickly and like did you have to be like really close to them toe like actually get it like how it works with Cho. But, yeah, Yeah, You definitely need to be close to get to get to them. And also, you know, the longer you play in the game, the more sort of health and wealth you build up. So you you could almost be like the NPC is where you feel. It's equivalent of you have a cough. You know when people get Coben and they say, Oh, it wasn't that bad. It was just like a mild flu. Or maybe somebody has access to, you know, very, very high and medicine. You know, it's different from some of the lower level players that people that just don't have the time to invest that much into their characters and build up. That health and those people were just getting wiped out like crazy, and you would really get sick. I mean, you would just listen. I like about the blood would come out of it wasn't it Wasn't like you just sort of like turned into a skeleton and disappeared. Yeah, that is pretty graphic. So this country attention of some epidemiologists in effect, Furman, who at the time was at Princeton and Eric Lofgren. So they were gamers. Also, they were like, also in World War craft at the time. Yeah, What was fascinating to them was not exactly the way that the virus spread in the game as much as the way people reacted to it, because his epidemiologists they would often do you know models try to figure out how are people going to behave on economist have talked about this lately to that for so long. They're mathematical models would assume that in any situation People would behave what they were considered to be rationally and so with world of Warcraft, Here's a virtual environment where most these characters are being controlled by real people, which meant that they could study the behavior in real time as to how people reacted in the situation like this. It was really fasting to them because they were reacting in ways that no mathematical model would have predicted. Yeah. Can you describe those reactions into some of the amazing similarities to hell? That epidemic mirrored our real life pandemic? No. Sure, So has the menu before the sort of subset of players who were inadvertently responsible for spreading the disease were hunters who they're, you know, they're digital pets got infected, So there was a lot of sort of scapegoating against these, You know hunters, and I mean, it's a much, much more serious situation, real world. But there's a lot of anti Asian racism that you know, immediately started when covert 19 came to the U. S. It is still going on today. There were fake cures being spread around and just Ton of misinformation and conspiracy theories. People thought the company of Blizzard had created it on purpose. Or maybe there was some disgruntled employee who had created it. It was very hard to get correct information in the sea of misinformation. Another thing that was really interesting was that there were people that were good Samaritans people with very high health points. You know, people had a lot of health and wanted to help use their you know, go into infected areas and use magical spells to cure people, But very often they overestimated how healthy there Characters were and then they would get infected well, and then you know, there's a subject you've talked about before on the show Briefers. Um, you know, in this case, you know, it's people that basically have very troll ish behavior online, and there are people that would actually go up and try to infect other people, Which you know doesn't happen very often. You very rarely hear stories about that. But actually, Blizzard wanted people to do social distancing. But you know, in a video game where the whole point is that you get to interact with other people through their avatars. Social distancing is not a fun way to play the game. And they were just a lot of people that simply didn't care. People are flooding the rules. People were being jerks, and then the other people who are taking it very seriously. We're upset, and we're just saying, you know, you're ruining the game for us. This is not a joke for us. And that kind of conflict in terms of you know how seriously do you take it from? How much do you follow the rules? That, you know, had a lot of interesting parallels as well. How How long did the epidemic last in World of Warcraft and how many players got infected? Unless for about a week, which obviously compared to what we've been through doesn't sound like much, but so at the time World War craft had about 6.5 million players around the world and over half of them. About four million were affected by the virus. So it was huge. I mean, you had to just kind of like, you know, escape to a virtual mountain top and let your character just sit there for the whole week. You go to your your virtual cabin in the woods if you wanted to avoid. This thing or just not log on which obviously for you, cos disastrous, All right. It's like, oh, boy. Time to go to the top of a mountain. Do nothing. My favorite game log back in and see if my character is still staring at the sky so the virus is spreading in the game. There's like unchecked spread. People are traveling all over the place, and eventually, things like Stop mirroring. Reality as I understand it, because unlike reality, World War craft has an all powerful game developer named Blizzard, right? Yeah. I mean, this is the thing where you know you wish you were living in a virtual world. They took control of the whole thing there. First. They tried to put in a bunch of patches to stop the virus and that wasn't working, And eventually they had to just reboot the whole system. Yeah. So one of the things I thought was really fascinating about your episode is that the epidemiologists really anticipated this wave of noncompliant behavior that popped up with our current pandemic. I'm going to play this clip from your podcast, imaginary worlds. Epidemiologist Eric Lofgren talking about that, and I think one of the things that we're seeing in parallel is a lot of people don't take infection seriously, if it is not personally a risk for them. So you see a lot of people talking about Corona virus, and I'm like, Well, I'm young. I'm healthy. The mortality rate isn't that high for me. So why should I care? And I think in the corrupted blood case There was a lot of that similar thing where, you know, Okay, This is bad if you're high level, but it's not all that big a deal. But like the server is being destroyed by this epidemic. The economy has been crippled. Everybody can we cooperate for a little bit and get rid of this? Is, I think, sort of the important parallel there. Yeah, it's just incredibly important that epidemiologists are not taken by surprise. To some extent. I mean, obviously they're surprising things about it, but it was not a complete shock to them. And I think because this kind of began to lay the groundwork for epidemiologist understand that people are not going to react like mathematical models and It's an important part of their messaging as well to the public is to is to anticipate that this is gonna happen and again, not be surprised by it. Yeah, we've had quite a few epidemiologist on the show over the past year. And it's almost like they have to be kind of part medical scientist Part social scientist It seems like yeah, they're really inseparable. And again, I've noticed, you know, economists over the years have been talking about this as well that too often that they based things off of these sort of mathematical ideas of what people will do, and people are obviously ah, lot more complicated. It's ironic that what seems like kind of virtual people You know, even though they're controlled by real people is is kind of what made them realize that Do you know what direction was like to this paper when it came out? And if it in the paper had any impact in the scientific community, especially in covert, so was I Guess it is huge. I'm in the paper when when the paper came out, it was huge. Eric Glass granted. Nina for vermin give a lot of talks. It was generally very, very well received paper people were pretty fast in and buy it, and it's and and had a really fun. You know, element do it in terms of video game that I imagine a lot of epidemiologist papers. Don't you know? Don't have so What do you take away from the story after you finished working on it? Well, the thing that I really thought about a lot was what counts is human contact to some extent, you know, that's so interesting to watch. These people interact virtually through this, you know, in in this virtual world because we've all been doing that over the last year. In a way we've all become Maura like players in a video game, you know where we have You know, even when you're on zoom. I mean, you're sort of constantly watching yourself on zoom and it's like there is kind of an avatar version of me that's interacting in this virtual world. And I just I feel like in a way, the whole world has become more like the world of work Craft. Over the last year, and I really began to see that coming when I worked on this episode, and so it's kind of played out exactly the way I thought.
US Health Officials Warn of Risk of False Positives in Widely Used COVID Test
"U. S. Health officials are warning health professionals about the risk of false positives. With a widely used laboratory test for covert 19 and the flu footed no Drug administration issue the alert today for health facilities using Roche's Kobe's task for the corona virus and seasonal flu. The agency warned that the problems with the tests processing tubes could result in false diagnosis. And people who are not actually infected. Rocha's testing system is widely used to screen large batches of pay patient samples in hospitals and laboratories. The FDA recommends health workers test samples multiple times to assure accuracy.
One year on: What have we learned about viruses since news of COVID-19
"Is a year since the world. Health organization declared a global pandemic and the world's began to adopt the lockdown status. That we are now so familiar with and according to the. Who also face the prospect of the pandemic staying with us until at least the start of next year. So what have we learned or dr. chris. Smith is multiple twenty-first health and science correspondent and a regular voice on one twenty four. Good morning chris. Well i remember this time last year. We were having a very similar conversation about the world going into lockdown. And he said we've got a book on bird flame. We're having a meeting. I think we might be all right. How how things out for you. In what respect. Because i if you look at different aspects of of how my life has played out then busy would be the best definition. But but i have a career which is a media career and providing science and medical commentary on things like pandemics at the same time. I have a medical career. Which is vera gist. So it's a bit like someone took. Ill musk's big effing rocket and place like no one on each leg and just ignited the same time i appreciate i. I've been very busy and in some respects. It's been an exhilarating terrifying right for others. It's obviously been devastating in terminal respect as well as in a sort of economic respect. So i think everyone is fed very differently. But maybe that wasn't what you were asking. Well let's focus on the variety section of it there. Is this sense of trying to be prepared. I think there's a feeling that many people had this time last year that we didn't know what was around the corner but the everybody was doing their absolute utmost to make sure that they could be as ready as they could be. What was it that we learned about viruses and how to deal with them within in the last year. We'll know not the golden rule book for anything night this because every situation is different every viruses different. And we'd never had a situation like this. We'd had similar situations. We've had flu outbreaks before and we'd had saws marquand the ancestor. That came in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand and three off of saul's sauce covey too but we hadn't seen anything quite like this as a result the there is no golden rule. Book says when this happens. This is how you handed of course. Also every country's different every population is different than makeup of those countries is different the way in which people work how they live what they do as a country how they respond as country. The letter prepared misses. The country is different. The amount of travel that goes on between countries is different. So it's really tricky. When you've got that extremely heterogeneous makeup of the world which makes a great place. of course. it's very difficult to then say. Well this is how you control something because there is no evidence to fall back on apart from things they'll related but not the same and when you've got that difference and it's a fluid situation where it's always a moving target because as we might one step forward things change the then mean. The virus takes a step foot. We've seen that with the various example. It's been tricky all the while it's been a massive learning process at every stage to work out how we can best out this challenge and we are not there yet. I mean my my mistake. My biggest mistake. I think was anticipating that we would have solved this problem by now. I honestly thought that by now We we would have been on the road closer to home for

Not In the the story I don't think can get much bigger than it already is but the infected population. I think we'll be in the thousands if not tens of thousands tens of thousands in America. Now I think that the infected rate right now is probably already over fifty thousand. I think that what we're seeing is a lag intesting so the numbers look low but there are a lot of people who are infected. And just don't know it okay. Stock was back up to the flu. Yes the stock. Yesterday I saw those pen. Stock was up as well. Turn this thing around. It feels like it all right so Yeah that's it we'll We'll talk to you Monday.

That's good my main Corey Feldman's shared on his well friend of mine fighting the good fight. No what is this? I actually was interested. What does he do. I thought I think he was just crazy. I think what we discussed ties in the core film is. I think there is yes I feel. I have great sympathy for Corey Film. I really thought a skimmer. He's a child star. Whose fucked up. He did just fucked up but even when he goes on pro on Wendy Williams. He said if you've seen him he looks the guys get out of it. I feel bad for. We got issue but he like Corey Haim was raped and I was emotionally raped. One thing is just trying to keep himself in the story and then the the teachers were like. Yeah we've heard these you. He said those names although the guy from and also got involved you go shit. Looks like he's trying to make himself. Charlie Sheen no Michael Jackson Billy. Who Music. Yeah Oh. He was obsessed. Michael Jackson obsessed. They're they're like of course which is perfectly normal. Best friends when Corrie felons eight but of course almost always Michael Jackson's never dining never did anything to him. He says that but then he says I think it was the trailer of the documentary. Where he's someone says. Did Michael Jackson ever do anything inappropriate with you? And he said if you consider showing a thirteen year old boy naked images and then yes. He's done appropriate thing so not nothing. Something that's inappropriate. I mean there's nothing but yes that's a that's a little strange but there were rumors so he for years like Corey. Feldman has been saying that a famous one of the most famous people in the world molested him. Yeah WHO WORKS AT COURT? Ham Not Ham though in the nearest. Paseo said him like he's always told Qazi always said Corey. How know him? I think as well. And so everyone always speculated for years so it was always great. You know because who is he worked with. Who was that? Who is this so she. Charlie Sheen was with Corey Haim in the movie Lucas. A lot of people in its toll speculation like thought my Spielberg who directed. Dupree reproduce the goonies which you know is one of those urban legends like Mister Rogers. In this you know green beret or something fucking fucking stupid but I mean you know. Thelma's fucked up sure you know. You just fucking. It was fucked up to the point. Where like maybe got something going on about it in a weird way but this just seemed like a pure scam this strange. Yeah it's weird. I don't know but yeah. I don't mean the documentary. I've read about the showing. It was a disaster. I guess Bookham screening and work. Yes sound was all fucked which. I don't believe either right now. He's just delaying it until he had because people didn't leave so he had to show it. Eventually we pay to get in here with a great youtube clip.

I did the management anxieties for years. I feel terrible. About the fact that Ed Monica Lewinsky's life was defined by trying to get the poison pen ruins bill.

I listened after the break and I didn't hear him play the hour because I forward unless they edited it differently but yeah I listen our. He's back afterwards so yeah he came. Every morning he became back yesterday. Apologizing is wrong and all that stuff so that to me is more proof that it was actually real because it was fake he would have just a homo build us up. I think the idea they're doing this because there's no competition so they're they're just mad but it's funny. I thought the most the most stunning thing to me was that there was no social media reaction to this whatsoever. Snacks there was no buzz. What operated sports program in Boston? There's no buzz was I'll tell you that. No one's listening to radio and I had to like search around and find it until until I someone deemed me about it and I was like wait.

You're being mean PM. I think even if it happened on Imus Sir Mike and the mad dog are like there's also like media reporters writing about it. I'm surprised clips worn out or because even like I've seen clips where some shitty am DJ's in Houston have gotten into it where it's like heard of but it also is also this thing we're ninety five is if you from Boston's kind of protected because they're not the people still Haiti. I the brand. Even though I'm gone Jerry's they just hate it but you know like Somebody who like fund particularly talented. He's a big fan of mine. Is Patrick Gilroy? We used to do shows with. He took so much shit this weekend over nothing like he did a did a flash recall the Bron James and do shit and he said that Kyrie Irving was a douche flick. That's his opinion is a talk show so we did that within the flash because we this is not a report. Yeah when you host those shows at night they're not spending any extra money these back in the old days have people in a different building. Do the do the updates to do anymore. Because they're looking to save some doges. Smart so Gilroy does zone updates and he did that sort of glibly and like people from sports central weighing in. I'm like what what's what the fuck you getting mad about this week. What also happens all the time. I don't even get it. I think it started with a guy like did that whole thing.

"To be vaccinated how confident are you vat a universal flu vaccine is just around the corner i'm very confident that we will have a broad quote unquote universal flu vaccine within the decade that's that's very optimistic in the meantime do you think that two canadian should be rolling up their sleeves and getting an annual flu shot i do i think that time sometimes we as humans can be poor judges of risk so when people here i'm disappointing numbers about how effective seasonal flu shot sorry you know some years people here that the flu shots only you know maybe thirty five percent effective well you know nobody would argue that that is less than what we would hope four but if somebody told you that you could get a shot that would decrease your risk of getting cancer by thirty percent you know i think most people would jump at that opportunity people underestimate the flu because you know most people it's true don't know any one that's ever died of the flu and it's easy to ignore the risk of flu when it's someone else's problem but the reality is that it's only someone else's problem until it happens to you and when it happens to you it's too late matthew miller thinks canadian should get the annual flu shot even when its effectiveness as low like this year he says a bit of protection against the flu is that of a nun some might call that massaging the message about flu shots by lowering expectations to notice of roszke the flu watcher i spoke with before is concerned about the confusing messages canadians are getting from public health officials about the flu shot she says that overselling the benefits of an annual jab that's not very effective so's doubts about much better vaccines against diseases like mumps and the measles her advice to senior public health officials get your priorities straight but are they listening hi my name is theresa tamim the chief public health officer of canada dr theresa tam welcome to wake up lack art is great to be here we reach doctor tamador studio so in ottawa we spoke to dr dinu discover on ski of the bc center for disease control and she's recommending that only those who are most vulnerable to the flu the very young and the elderly those with the with serious medical problems that.

"Make sure that that i'm clear on this are you saying then that the relative ineffectiveness of seasonal liu shot combined with the usual public health messages that you should get a flu shot that that put some doubt in the minds of parents who have to decide whether or not to get their kids vaccinated against the measles well i think there's a disc joint in logic there when we're talking vaccine effectiveness of 10 to 30 percent we have to be able to acknowledge that is not just suboptimal it's far from suboptimal it is low in your opinion what do you think we need to do differently well i i think that as certainly we we should be underscoring the the importance of highrisk individuals should continue to get the vaccine but i do think we need to complete that statement by saying we are doing our best in public health to identify improved vaccine options and by that i don't mean hoping that some scientist some where somehow may at some time come up with an improved vaccine we should be uh trying to understand why the vaccine does not perform as well as we would like and if we can gather that understanding that will help us in the design of uh alternative vaccines but but currently there isn't that kind of commitment are you calling for something is transformative as a moon shot yes i am we we need a a kind of a global influenza vaccine enterprise on that level the kind of marshalling of national and international resources that were applied to the the shot episode in the us and committing the way that kennedy did to uh deliver bowles before the decade is out what stopping that from happening i would say uh impart a political will uh we we need to collectively convince governments that this is a crucial and important investment and i think if we continue in public health to gloss over the weaknesses in the current vaccine if we can't say that 10 percent vaccine effectiveness is too low it's not acceptable and while it may be the best that we currently have those are hollow words if we're not trying to do better and i think we have to recognize there isn't the market motivation to go after longer lasting more consistently protective vaccines over multiples seasons given.

"Test negative design that's the test the told us this year's vaccine is only seventeen percent effective against h three n two and those results will be exhibit a when the who meets later this month to decide what to put in next year's flu shot for oscar brodsky who we reached in our studio in vancouver it brings up some troubling questions about an all too familiar pattern and we're pulling in data rate across canada into the bc center for disease control to generate those estimates of course we are uh concerned that the protection may not be uh high or at least as high as we would like it to be this year is my imagination or is that that kind of pessimistic prediction about the effectiveness of the vaccine starting to sound like a broken record uh i don't think it's your imagination it all particularly for the h three n two uh component uh we don't understand why but recurrently where having to adopt an almost apologetic tone when speaking about two the eight three into component of the vaccine your team developed the test for how effective the flu vaccine is each year house surprised were you when you develop though that test when the results started to show how poorly the vaccine uh did in some years and often does uh we you are gobsmacked to be frank wire seasonal flu shot so lousy well i would say that the main problem is with the h three n two component unlike any of our other vaccines the influenza vaccine has to be reformulated changed every year to keep pace with a rapidly evolving virus and we sometimes gets um it right with the influenza vaccine and sometimes less so who decides what to put him the seasonal flu shot well that's a semi annual global effort in fact with laborde tories around the world monitoring uh influenza viruses that are collected from people who have become ill with the flu and in addition now polling in vaccine effectiveness estimate so uh estimates of how well the vaccine is actually performing out in the the population all of that information is pulled together to inform the who about how well the current vaccine components are performing and whether or not they need to be updated that happens in february the who will be meeting sometime mid.

"For working age adults twenty to 64 numbers like that have led to questions about why the vaccine isn't better and doubts about why they should bother with the flu shot that is hit and miss at best just listened to what some people told our producer jeff goods when he asked them about rolling up their sleeves this time round ju get the flu shot no why not for a lot of years i didn't get it never got sick then i started to get it in the gut the flu every year and then i stop getting it and stop getting the flu so would you ever take a flu shot again um probably not do you do take the future every year for many years now and have had through to my knowledge i haven't had the flu and all those shares so far so good did you get the flu shot nor never would know us why not i've been told by nurses not to do it because of the fact that they don't know what the longterm effects will be and a documentary saw once showed you they try to predict the top six to twelve strains of flu that are gonna be out that year and they very rarely hit the right ones sorta total waste of time as far as i'm concerned and p a lot of people i know my inlaws for example who get the flu shut every year two weeks later the sick as hell with the flu so i will never trust no way no thank you you may as well go to the casino you can gamble there too that's why the opinion i've never thought getting a flu shot is like going to a casino still a vaccine it's only seventeen percent effective against h three n two seems like awfully long odds for something most public health doctor's advice everyone to get and lightly it's led some very prominent experts to question that blanket message hi my name is said to new discover on ski and i am the lead for influenza and emerging respert pathogens at the pc center for disease control she and her colleagues pioneered a revolutionary test that helps flu specialists around the world determine the effectiveness of the annual flu shot it's called the.

"Then you shouldn't get a flu shot yeah there's like a couple of other ways that they make flu shots um flu vaccines but that chicken against the most predominant way to do it yet if you're currently uh have a fever weight on your flu shot uh under six months of course we said you cannot uh if you have had flu shots in the pass and you had a bad reaction because like i said it's not gonna make you sick but you might feel a little shaky arrou have sore muscles or something but you can have a bad reaction if that's the case and may be flu shots aren't for you right and if you're an anti vaxxers then you probably are decided that she flew shots aren't for you correct which we will never do an episode on that in fact the nations oh you don't think so i don't know man so the the idea that of flu vaccine can you know check all the boxes but still just be wrong wrong wrong or not confirm unity um has some people looking for a universal vaccine or one that lasts way longer than just a year um what they're targeting is so when you get a normal vaccine that vaccine is based on that ha protein the himmah a hema gluten nia um and that's the most quickly evolving part of any flu virus right yet they're saying well let's look at other parts of the flu virus that don't evolved nearly as quickly and target that in some of those parts are even basically universal among all flu viruses so if you confine can create a vaccine based on stable part of a flu virus that the part of every fluvirus one vaccine could confer a ideally lifelong immunity from all influenza for anybody who takes the vaccine one vaccine to cure the mall exactly while yep.
