Just got a report Mary that says that The New York Times is now reporting that Madonna has asked for emergency FDA approval for its vaccine. And the first shots could be given his earliest December 21st. That's the Madonna vaccine. The Other one by Fizer. The FDA is meeting next week on the 10th. The CDC tomorrow to talk about distribution of vaccines in the country. What do you know about that? How have you been Told that it all probabilities vaccines will be distributed. So the hospitals and the hospital Association have been working closely with the Florida Department health as they put together their vaccine plan that has been submitted to the federal government. A zoo You know, the feds have prioritized frontline health care workers, our emergency responders and certainly our most vulnerable populations from the very beginning. We've known that are older individuals. Certainly individuals with underlying health conditions, our greatest risk for covert 19 and certainly greatest complications from Cove in 19 nursing homes assisted living facilities. The Florida Department of Health has been working closely to develop. A distribution plan to ensure that those individuals in nursing homes in those residential settings are vaccinated. So we are cautiously optimistic as everyone is. That those vaccines will begin to be distributed by mid December. Our hospitals have been developing their plans to be ready to anticipate that distribution and then the administration of the vaccine much like they do for flu vaccine, So this is weird. Right. We've got a strong foundation for hospitals to be ready to receive these vaccines and too quickly begin to administer those emergency. Hospitals generally have the type of freezer that it's gonna be required for the five vaccine, which is gonna require extremely cold temperature to be able to keep or is that something that they have to Import, especially So the packaging for the visor vaccine is certainly supporting the temperature, the controlled temperature that is needed that is not necessary for the Moderna vaccine. So there is a broader ability to distribute that vaccine for the storage of that vaccine. It's not at the same, uh, control to the same extreme cold temperature. But there are hospitals that also have greater storage for that extreme cold for the visor vaccine, But again, they develop some packaging that is going to help to avoid some of the initial concerns and challenges regarding that. Well, that's good news there again. The news just a few minutes ago from The New York Times claims that Madonna has applied for emergency authorization for its vaccine with the FDA, and that first injections of this could happen is early as December 21st. So we're moving closer. Hey, Mary. Thanks your time again. What a pleasure to speak with you. Thank you so much. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Take care. It's Mary Make you 7 17 maybe get some training for me. It's cliche to say by now, but everything really is different this year, including how we celebrate the holidays. With the little ones and the trend means drive through Christmas celebrations. How about singing.

"And they put out misinformation to you ready for this one? Yes, hundreds of students and staffers. Got the China virus despite precautionary measures. The Florida Department Health published a report last month showing 559 Cove in cases related to elementary, middle and high schools log from August 10th and 23rd. Oh, my God. But then state health officials quickly retracted reports that it was Was a draft and it was inadvertently made available, so it was not true. I love this. Despite this is this other media rolls is why nobody trust them USA today in about Florida, despite the bright spots in the data showing school age cases declining from their summertime peak. There was one troubling trend. The rate of decline slowed. In many places after schools reopened. So, the experts said, Well, it's not declining fast enough. I mean, we have to live life, right? That might mean cases have plateau Did schools have not fuelled new large outbreaks? Really? No, no kidding. So again, it's declining. Just not as fast as we want. That's that's the that's that you threatening about then? I said, so it could be that schools haven't fuelled new large outbreaks. No kidding. Or it might mean those counties or the bottom of the you and could soon turn upward again. They still to try to scary in the media. These idiots don't know what they're doing. They have no idea. It gets even better. Fine. As weeks tick by and a surge of schooling cases did not materialize. Request to return remote learners to the classroom have surged in some places. Requests have surged. They talked about one school district getting 160 requests, which is almost four times as many as those asking to switch from in person to remote. By the way, Why do you think all of a sudden these superintendents have folded? It's not just because this show where I mean we have big part of it because You know, we I've informed you you putting pressure on them to But the fact that ah, that I guarantee you that charter schools have opened and there have been no outbreaks here in Pima County schools. Parents have been probably just Blowing up emails and phones to all the superintendent's saying, What are you doing? What are you doing? So people are seeing what's going on in. This is Florida. Same thing's happening here. You ready for this one? School's Open in Martin County, Florida, August 11th. Now in the four weeks before August, 11th They had 69 reported. China virus cases there. Then they opened school. For weeks after opening Just 62 cases in that age group of kids. 69. China virus cases among school age Children before school opening 62 after so it dropped after school opened. Oh, man. No kidding..

"Right. Now we have an FAA. You professor who makes like the all time names list. We'll all time. Favorite names. I'm sure you've got this your entire life. But Dr Rebel cold. Dr. Cole, how you doing? I'm doing good. I love that Billy Idol song Good. I'm like this can go one of two ways. But that's why you probably have heard that your entire life But your your parents had great taste. All right, All right. So yesterday you had out. Ah, you had this report out. That was really compelling and something some data you put together your own dashboard. On the accounting for the Corona virus in Florida. And the headline Fort says a lot bored is Graham Corona. Virus Outlook is false narrative. Dr Cole. Why is it a false narrative? Well, if you've seen today's cover of the Palm Beach Post, glimmer of hope it seems that others have arrived at the same conclusion that I ride yet by looking at the data. It looks like a lot of this panic that we've seen about the situation with covert and foreign, especially south border has been vastly overblown. And that's a pretty big statement unto itself. And ultimately, why is it that it's been overdone? I don't know. But if you turn on the national nightly news programs you hear 42 hospitals and Florida are without capacity. Well, those 42 hospitals or 42 out of every 300 they have less than 15% of the I. C U capacity. Actualized capacity is about 15% statewide, so we're not running out of Cuba's. We're not running out of hospital beds. People are not going into freezers outside the morgue. There's just a lot of of minutes reporting, especially in the national level. They're scaring the hell out of people in Florida. And Dr Cole, you kind of to your point, so What I see and tracking information daily is we might be a peak hospitalization. But that doesn't mean that people who need critical care can't get it. But the way it's fed makes it sound as though perhaps that's the case. One of the elements that you put it out in your data, and I thought this was highly instructive. I'd like to hear a little bit more about it. You end up smoothing out the data. In other words, we know we get data dumps from certain reporting. Institutions all at once, and it can make spikes look huge and it can make it look like it just happened when in reality, it might have been something I played out over a longer period of time. Tell us a little bit about these data dumps and how it's driven some of this narrative in some of the fearmongering. Well, the way that the this is especially true for the daily death number of you here, So I think that number for Florida yesterday was 139 people reported dead and for yesterday. What they don't tell you is the death of reporting with a lag of anywhere from a day two a month. So that those 139 people did not die during the last 48 hours, in spite of what the media seems to think they died over the last 2 to 3 weeks, and we actually have a chart on our tractor that shows exactly what day those people died on. So what's what's being done is they're showing this day I called the daily death data dump and it keeps rising. And so it makes it look like things are getting worse. Ah, very spectacular fashion when they're not Speaking to F. They use doctor Rebel Cole again. He's put together his own dashboard and information addressing what he's talking about here and again, his report out boarders Grim krone virus outlook is false narrative. It is a must read as though Dr Cole We also know that we've had the issues with Testing, and we had certain labs. It looked like many of the labs have been brought on line. When we had an increase and testing starting in early July, there were only reporting positives back to the state. We know that the Porter Department of Health is now investigating, in addition to the FDA that's now opened up in an investigation. What are your thoughts? And what have you seen as you're you're parsing through this data. Well, I noticed that several weeks ago, a tweet that went viral in sort of started this whole story. What I've learned subsequent to that there about 400 labs that have been reporting only positives. Their primary small abs that don't have an impact on the three million tests. So this is really more of a credibility issue for the Florida Department. Health that they didn't have this under control. They should have. They should have. Had done a deal with this, you know, a long time ago on that, but just it shatters the credibility and the the of the agency with people. If you can't trust the numbers, they're coming out of the four department health. Then you're gonna have panicked. One into that point, Dr Cole speaking a couple days ago with CDC director Robert Redfield, he told me the single most important number that they follow is the positivity right? Because that's how they know where there is community spread and where the community spread is worse. So if we can't trust her positivity, right? The single most important dynamic in real time for authorities to use. We got problems. Do you have any idea as Florida before the Department of Health right now is reporting a 12% positivity right? Since testing began? You have any idea where the real number might stand? That number is pretty meaningless. That's pretty close because we should be getting our case positively rate. But we call it surveillance testing where you test a random sample the population. What we're getting is a dump of all the people that are tested, including people that are in high risk areas, such as agricultural communities, hospitals, nursing homes, meatpacking plant Or, you know, the positively racing he really high. Those tests should not be included in that percentage. And they are so they're biasing that percentage upwards from what it should be. Tactical. We're hearing school districts as they're making decisions to delay school to only offer online.

"Oh are you podcast. I'm michael holtz in the communications and marketing department here at o. Are you with my colleague. The wonders jenna harpen al morning. How are you. I'm doing great. I'm happy to be here again this morning. This is a good way to start our morning. It really is a good cerna morning always find we get to learn about our colleagues and more about the company and absolutely suffering don't always know chat going on. I like at the time we'll coffee so speaking of people who work for our company. Our guest today is carrie cagle fine. How are you glad to be here so kerry. Tell us who you are and how you got to our house. Here's carrie legal. That's that's a very good question. I'm really one of those operations compliance leaders <hes> that's really my background so being the associate director over our scientific peer reviewed apartment <hes> a lot of people had you get there and sometimes ask that same place so what's happened here <hes> but i've been at i worry you for fourteen years. <hes> and i've had an interesting journey at ory you so i started in two thousand and five as a internal auditor with viki carin yes maritime and then my path progressive me over to become a you know what we call it or u._b._s. Say which is kind of the financial budget analyst and i was actually doing that in our stride program which is now saw awed but still you know under haraz called the stroppy w s and <hes> really became interested in what they were doing with peer review and the support they provided added <hes> in in soon moved into becoming a project manager and really just worked my way through. I was the operations manager. So you know making sure everything that we did did. I'm had high integrity quality and compliance behind it so that's really what has gotten me where i am today. <hes> my edification background <hes> so i have a bachelor's in organization management a master's in organization leadership and i'm currently pursuing doing my doctorate from vanderbilt in education leadership and learning that's good so we had <hes> jim bosberg in here the other day and he gave a very brief description a regarding what peer review is but can you kind of give your your own since you are in the trenches and you know this is your thing you do this day in and day out just really briefly for listeners. Describe what you're yeah so what is peer review. <hes> it really is an evaluation. It's a very very important evaluation process. <hes> in it really does not get the credit. It deserves <hes> and that's because it's kind of way back behind everything. It's not actually the research being done. It is it is a in evaluation of research funding proposals or research project proposals. <hes> requesting funding for research <hes> <hes> all federal research federal and state research is required mandated by law to be peer reviewed <hes> so what that means is we identify and recruit subject matter experts based on the proposal topic to come in and evaluate proposals that have been submitted and then based on on the feedback from the subject matter experts important funding or project decisions are made so i mentioned funding and that's a large part of our work but one of the cool things we get to take part in is the project reviews requesting time on the national app supercomputers so that's career cloudy exciting stuff so we were not involved in the actual research but we are a very important part of the research being conducted did and the stri group for our peer review group is actually involved in the entire research funding life cycle so we help facilitate and coordinate <hes> advisory committee meetings and workshops where the decisions are being made as to what should be research search were what should we fund over this next year and that moves into that proposal process <hes> where we have the ability using our peer knit system to collect proposals or or customer system <hes> collect those proposals and then as i mentioned recruiting and identifying the subject matter experts. I'm coordinating the whether it's an in person panel review or women are review <hes> all all the way through to the point that we're providing the results of that review over to our customers and they're using that information to make that important decision to a two on what's the best value proposal that's been provided and should be funded absolutely. It's very very important you know and i i. I use the analogy of if i think about it. If if you won the lottery today one of those almost billion dollar lotteries and all of your cousins families uncles nonprofit organizations are gonna come out of the woodwork with handout and you know you're you're giving person what how do you know what's the best to give your money to and that's what this is. Just kind of you know in in simple terms. It's trying to to help make the best decisions about and to be good stewards of our federal and state dollars and not directly like you said in the research but you you guys are having a direct impact on major research. That's happening for this nation and moving us forward absolutely yeah. It is a very important role. I completely lately agree and we have. We have some really great staff. <hes> who are subject matter experts themselves in in the process and you know our our our research associates czar all p._h._d.'s or their information scientists and have the background to identify and recruit these reviewers so it's a it okay pretty special team a very large list of reviewers. Don't you yes. We have a database of over eighteen thousand reviewers that we've identified and recruited created all kinds of subject matter absolutely absolutely i would i would i would want to defer jim malone on all of those subject the subject areas <hes> because i've seen you know by have the list but it is a laundry list a lot of biomedical research <hes> but even beyond that with commercialization and shooting so in it's not just federal customer correct you also state international so we work with the pennsylvania department of health <hes> this florida department health <hes> as well as nazerbayev university university in kazakhstan. That's yeah that's pretty interesting. Actually <hes> dr dave duncan is on his way back from there. He just went to their their graduation this past week wow so here he would have a very interesting story feature podcast super for cool and i'm sorry it just trying to thought is the other customers so we actually work with the universities and <hes> you know veteran affairs as a new one as well so you mentioned pure net which is is our proprietary proprietary platform <hes> four that are pure reviewer used to score judge <hes> the proposes does that they're looking at talk a little bit about to the extent that you can because i know it's proprietary you know how it works and how that enables you to really work with peer reviewers around the world who don't necessarily have to be gathered in a room to do the review and we actually have a great vision vision with for pure net right now so it's it's <hes> it's it's growing and which is really exciting so pure net today is is <hes> as a as a is an evaluation system and it allows <hes> those identified rick reviewers from throughout the world to have a secure log in <hes> from their home computer or personal device <hes> to once they've been assigned to a review to log in and breathe the proposal and score it evaluated their adding their comments based on the review criteria that established <hes> the peer now also it has the ability now which is a fairly new feature to <hes> collect proposal so we can actually create the u._r._l. For the call for proposals those include <unk> collect them directly into peer net and so that super cool it is it is super bowl <hes> it's it's. It's really great that rolled out old little over a year ago. We've got some really great developers after throw out there that we have a great deal of development team <hes> here at o. Are you <hes> and in so now what they're working on which is that's my passion. I'm super excited about it is worth longtime coming. We're turning it into a full grants management management system so what that means is currently pure net you can use to to to the point that the evaluations been done in reports can determine provide help make that decision and beyond that then the grants could be awarded and try to all the back in and project tracking can be would be able to be done in <hes> impure net nice more value for customers absolutely absolutely and then the the you know the next thing is to become best best in class and we've not define best in class but we will look. I've used randomly internally for or a few projects and it is <hes> wonderful. It's very easy to use <hes>. It's helped us score. We have some projects where we collect proposals and i have a small team that scores in it's been great. It's been very helpful. <hes> and like you said michael the ability to have people look at the proposal and score or and not have to have everybody sitting in one room has been phenomenon so yeah i even even internal you know inside of our a u it's been it's been a great tool tool. It it really is a great deal and you know we we tend to always focus on the research funding or the research projects that it actually can be used for any type of evaluation. We also use it for a ward nominations in an agenda. That's that's how you've used it internally but we actually do award nominations for the department of energy offices society as well as whatever you need evaluate you win the lottery start using which john <hes> we know peer reviews important. It's an important part of the scientific process what makes for good pure review integrity number one and that means not just integrity the actual view that all all of the process surrounding that review <hes> that means the the products that we're putting together the service that we provide i'm needs to be of the utmost hice this quality <hes> at any point. If we're not providing quality service how can we justify the integrity of that revision so so the entirety tired of review <hes> means that it's conflict of interest free <hes> hopefully minimal bias it's kind of hard to control biased but <hes> we do monitor for conflict of interest interest <hes> and have a process around that to help avoid that or viewers if declare conflict conflict of interest you know no longer can say the the proposal conflict of interest in this case would be. I'm a reviewer who maybe i knew the researcher. Absolutely absolutely i in in different agencies. Agencies may have different requirements around conflict of interest but typically. That's what it means. You've had within the last five years. You've had some form of involvement with the researcher or the research team proposing <hes> so it's really you truly the most important part of a peer review is is at integrity because going back to being good stewards of research dollars. The last thing you want is for someone to come back can question the award may and so being able to have that that's that's one of the benefits of using you know with the individual user loggins. There's all these variety of justifications along that you could provide to prove there was no conflicts and we've done our due diligence to maintain the integrity throughout the process. I've been a peer reviewer. Isn't you know <hes> little less on the scientific excited more on the more on the patient advocates but <hes> i know in some of the in person meetings that i've attended in one you have to declare the conflict of frontier don't even look at the proposal title and then when you're having that meeting if you if you're the person with the complex you have to leave the room sign out when he left sign out when he came back look into the as you said there's prove all along the way the conflict was avoided absolutely and typically <hes> for the majority of our peer reviews. We'll we'll have have one of our project managers in in the panel itself and that's one of the main reasons why they're there to help monitor for conflicts and you know i have personally stopped a review discussion because i knew someone in the room had been asked to leave yet to remind the panel chair that this person has conflict and needs to leave the room so important part so if someone is interested in working with you guys what is the best way to get in touch with you. They are welcome to reach out to me. Carey dot com or dot org org <hes> and that's k. e. r. a. dot c. A. g. l. e. at dot oregon..
