"You don't know anything about classical music you've probably heard at least parts of beethoven's ninth symphony even if you didn't know it. It's one of the most famous pieces of music in history and widely considered to be the greatest if not the greatest symphony orchestras considerate. The good china that you bring out for special occasions. They'll often play it for the opening and finale of their seasons. It's played during the olympic ceremonies. And on new year's eve it's been used as the national anthem for countries television commercials and was played when the berlin wall came down the story of the ninth symphony. And how this work came to be is one. That is highly improbable. When he was twenty six years old. Beethoven began to experience hearing loss in his letters. From that time period he had reports of ringing in his ears in eighteen. O one at the age of thirty one. It's estimated that he already lost sixty percent of his hearing at the age of forty six in eighteen. Sixteen he was already completely. Deaf was a particularly cruel affliction for a musician and a composer by the time the eighteen twenty s rolled around beethoven was already famous and successful. He had written eight anthony's one opera and many other pieces for solo and smaller groups. At this point he had already composed the vast majority of the musical works. He would write in his lifetime much of his time during his late. Forties and early fifties. We're spent dealing with family matters. Which in many respects was him sticking his nose into the affairs of his brother's nephew when it wasn't warranted in eighteen seventeen. He received a commission to compose a symphony for the philharmonic. Society of london. He basically did nothing with the symphony for five years or at least he didn't put anything to paper. One thing which beethoven had always wanted to do was to put his favorite poem to music undestroyed which is written by friedrich schiller in english. It's called the ode to joy. The joy is in german and it was written to be a him to the brotherhood of man. Even though he couldn't hear beethoven could still hear music in his head over his career he had written many smaller pieces with various themes which never left him. They were all still floating around inside of him in eighteen twenty two. He began formerly working on the composition. He knew that this was going to be the cumulation of his life's work. This was going to be his masterpiece in eighteen twenty four. He was ready for the premier while the symphony was commissioned by the philharmonic society of london. Beethoven wanted to premiere the symphony in berlin. He felt that. Vienna had become too enamored with italian composers such as rossini however. His friends managed to draft a petition which was signed by other high profile members of the viennese music community. This convinced beethoven to keep the location of the premiere in vienna. The connor tore theater was chosen as the location for the premiere it had been twelve years since beethoven was last onstage and many people wanted to see what the maestro hadn't store the performance required the largest orchestra which beethoven had ever assembled. They had both the house orchestra for the theater. The viennese musical society and many other esteem soloists in the city. Who all wanted to take part in the performance however the thing that set this symphony apart and the thing which had never been done before was the addition of acquire prior to this performance. Choir had never been used with a symphony. This may not seem like a big deal. Now but at the time it was revolutionary. And it's for this reason that the ninth symphony is often called the chorale. Legit holds at the combined orchestra rehearsed twice before the performance. The quality of the premier probably wasn't anywhere near as good as modern performances of the ninth. Beethoven insisted on being stage even though it was officially conducted by michael whom lov the problem was beethoven's inability to hear made it impossible for him to properly keep time ohio knowing. This was going to be a problem told the orchestra beforehand to ignore beethoven interest focused on himself. The house was packed. Save for the emperor's imperial box in many of the other boxes of the nobility. They had already left the city for the summer. The concert open with the viennese. Premiere of beethoven's missus alumnus which had been performed a month earlier in saint petersburg as well as his concentration of the house overture. However the real reason everyone was there was for the main event. Beethoven's ninth symphony during the symphony itself. The crowd was very loud several times. A police had to quiet people down however when it was over the crowd went nuts. There was a rousing standing ovation. However beethoven didn't know it he couldn't hear them clapping one of the vocal soloists. Carolina unger reportedly had to turn beethoven around so he could acknowledge the crowd. The crowd gave beethoven five standing ovations and for each one. They waved handkerchiefs and hats. In their hands knowing that he couldn't hear them music critics almost instantly and unanimously. Felt that this was one of beethoven's greatest works if not his greatest however there was some dissension regarding the fourth movement which was the chorale. Many of critics couldn't get their heads around a choir and an orchestra together. Whoever such complaints were minor and very short lived. The symphony went under premier in berlin london. And the rest of the world. Beethoven died without ever completing another symphony. He was working on his tenth symphony when he died but he hadn't gotten very far over time. The symphony developed a legendary status famed conductors. Such as richard wagner gustav mahler leonard bernstein and herbert von karajan all headed nine symphony as one of their favorite pieces to conduct the symphony's fourth movement. The oh joy became the national anthems for several countries. It was the national anthem. For rhodesia from nineteen seventy four thousand nine hundred seventy nine when east and west germany had a unified team at the olympics from nineteen fifty six to nineteen sixty eight. They use the oh dejoy as their anthem at medal ceremonies in one thousand. Nine seventy two. The music without lyrics was adopted as the anthem of europe. And in one thousand nine hundred five. It was adopted as the anthem for the european union. It has become a tradition for many orchestras to play. Beethoven's ninth symphony on new year's eve. The tradition has taken hold in japan where there are over fifty performances that take place every new year's eve. The peace has become known as the diko. Which is the japanese word for ninth. The tradition took hold from german prisoners of war during world war one. Who would perform it. The japanese national broadcasting company. Nhk began performing at the nineteen twenty s and through world war. Two on the radio. Some of the dike performances in japan have lotteries for people to take part in the choir. They actually pay money for a lottery ticket so they can take part in their performance and some performances have as many as ten thousand people in the choir most of the japanese performances start at eleven pm december. Thirty first so they will hit the fourth movement. Right around midnight these mega performances are often held in arenas were half of the people in. Attendance are performing after beethoven completed nine symphony. There developed something among composers known as the curse of the ninth. It's a superstition that holds that a ninth symphony will be a composer. Last schubert divorce ralph vaughan. Williams and moller all died before they could compose their tenth symphony. American composer. Philip glass actually released his tenth symphony before his ninth. Just to avoid the curse of the ninth. There are of course many composers that have written well more than nine symphonies but the superstition still exists. There's one final story but the ninth symphony which deserves addressing the role of beethoven's ninth symphony in the creation of the compact disc in the early nineteen eighties. Sony and philips had both developed digital storage formats. Which could be read by lasers however there formats had some serious differences. They came together to try to hammer out a standard that both companies could agree on the key. Point of contention was the size of the disc mainly if it should be eleven point five centimetres diameter or twelve centimeters the defining piece of music which was used to determine. The length of a cd was beethoven's ninth symphony. The longest version of the symphony. They could find was seventy four minutes. So seventy four minutes became the standard for the compact disc supposedly. It was the wife of sony ceo. A morita was a strong advocate of getting the entire ninth symphony on a single disc. I had heard the store years ago. And i also heard that. It was an urban legend however in researching the story. There's actually.

"Don't know what that is. It's more like your simaltaneously using your lips to make the shapes to say one sentence but you actually behind your lips at the back of the throat same completely different says quite spooky when it's done. Well, Ryan Very Spooky Venice Dome. Yeah. Yeah. What's the technique to it? You've got to plan the sentence you're gonNA say and then you Go to get your lips ready to say different sentence. So everything eventually quiz is obviously not using the lips formed substitute lips seizing the back of your tongue soft palate, and that's where you're making the sounds in theory you should definitely be able to do it. If you're adventure of course, you should definitely be able to say something with your lips but say something else at the back of your throat. But. You have that problem of your brain thinking the thing with your face you're saying and disassociating that is the real challenge and how do you start then when you're doing ventriloquist, do you start by just trying to make random acts noises from different parts of your face and mouth and throat or has worked? Well, you've got. Twenty of the twenty, six letters of the alphabet you can say without moving listener trouble tool than than useful for those but be P. Mer high costs forgotten them now. I think as hard as well. You just have substitutes so be maced the A. Girl sound but y'all stinking. Whilst you're saying girl and then over time something happens in the bacteria throat and it just get better at it. Yeah. Parrots are a great a great source of inspiration because they've only got those little. Biki tones and no lips and they can do everything what and what they have above I mean. So it's just how you control the passing through that. Town on the. Soft Palate. You kind of have to when you say. If you, if you do like lazy. And you've let the air build up a bit before you let the PGA out it transforms into a labored I mean you're very good. I was watching you said that your federalism skills have slipped a bit but I was watching a video of you from what it was posted last year and it was excellent and there's absolutely no gotta of gear going on. That's good. But I think the way I was taught by Ken was never mind getting your baby right before you go onstage now cares it's much more fun if you're puppets funny and you're saying good things like that's the least important thing about Ventura Christmas, you'll be sound. Yeah then stay. Practicing in front of the mirror until you think bur, just get out there and start going. People were gladly enjoy the. From a funny puppet anyway doesn't matter at all and then how quickly did you start playing around with the form 'cause you becomes the well known for doing. Things that I haven't seen other ventriloquists doing I suppose the most notable of those would be putting the puppet of at certain points putting monkey back in the bag, and then just withdrawing your arm and then carrying on as if monkey naked and the and the puppet is just your arm and it's set of deconstruction of the whole thing that's very intriguing unsettling and then the other. Innovation. Correct me if I'm wrong is when you strap on the big remote control mouth onto members of the audience that you get up on stage. So how quickly did those creep in mosque that on? Audience numbers faces that I didn't design that those have been around on ventriloquists use them and Ron Lucas was the first ventriloquist. Those needed very funny at them but I think what? Excited me most about them was that you could create. An Act. Live just using the people in the room and a few scant details of the lies and just improvise a whole show ball with members of the audience. So I'm responsible for taking it to that next level although it started quite carefully I had a stooge in the audience and get you know it pay someone to come every night and and then one night the stooge couldn't come. So somebody real and God. It was a lot funnier with someone real and. Chance and other real one tomorrow and then it was much funnier and then I this way the best way to go I'll just use only audience and we'll make it all up and so that's what that's what shows have been doing ever since being because they continue to surprise me and feels like Oh, Gosh. The breakthrough to a format that can just keep doing for years because it's different every time. That's the thing I missed most now with this bloody pandemic is that you can't do. Such like close shows where the audience just experiences of one night and then they will as they file out, they've had a shared experience that was spoke to them and all. That feels like real sadness. You can't really you can't do that on saying yes, and then with the naked monkey, when did that start happening? Did you that was a really? Flourish of kind of deconstructionist's. Matter Ventriloquist that I hadn't seen before. Yeah well, I had him. I started out was ours ACT and. The stand ups would. Suggest that I had it easy because I had a profit cheating or something because I had a funny pulpit, you've got a prop the prop and. That lingers to this day like I'm cheating. It really does I kind of believe that deep down I'm cheating still because there's like a purist thing about standup that you think. It's just knows. It's very. Very, adept. And towed the time Danu kits was getting down quits and one of our started out and it was kind of response to him. He said what you do is a very good example of what I don't like. You should just get up learn save the thing. and. I kind of went away thinking. How am I? GonNa. Show it's me or the I am saying things. So I think that I that deconstruct was actually. I think that was in response to to kits and saying that. Came up with it the same week when he says, you should just say the things talk to them. Okay get behind the MIC and taught them section fuss that you're doing the puppet. You could just go out and talk to them. But I think all these years I've been doing it I realized that there is something different about what I do from just going tool camping I really feel like that monkey has access to. A subconscious thing I mean God I'm in. I have a therapist had therapists for about three years and sometimes she has to ask me what would monkey save she can tell I'm lying or blocking something or I'm not really. She says. Monkey say another nine, my guard you're right. I'm relying. This is nonsense. Yes. I. Can hear monkeys voice in these telling you I did it on purpose I didn't even say. So It does seem. Jesse. Access to a sub-conscious level of thoughts that that tool has about what came I can't have just been there all along and then just pick monkey up and suddenly it spoke but maybe There's a bit in the film, her master's Voice. Where there's a bit of audio of Ken Campbell, talking to you in fact, talking to you being the Monkey. Quotes, Friedrich Schiller. Eighteenth Century, German, poet, and philosopher. And He says Schiller said there's a watcher at the gate of the mind and it's the watcher that stops you being creative because creation and insanity or almost the same thing and that's a great way of looking at it and what you do with the monkey as you're kind of trying to. Shut down the watcher at the gate or you're trying to sit of externalize it somehow. An unaccountable force isn't me? He can sneak past the gatekeeper of the mind. Yeah. That's when it's working at its best. It's when you achieve that there's another I mean it's such a great. Were you happy with the movie when it came out I mean it's it seemed to do very well. Yes I was very happy because I made it with my own money very cheaply and then. Managed to sell it to the BBC after it made it which was yeah. The Business Model I've been wanting to replicate. The nice freeing way to do it. I was. Yeah where can people see it? Now I think it's on Amazon now and. Some prime. Yeah. This many many really memorable and and quite sort of. jarringly strange and honest moments in the whole thing where your way you're dancing around with the whole off officiality of what you do and making a film and being a ventriloquist and saying honest things via these puppets and..

So everybody does it men women, children everybody except my dead it just sits there continues to read the newspaper and CBS's morning coffee. He doesn't even try to tone down. He says. That's how I know Memorial Day for the Holocaust started. This. Happens once a year and fell right on my yearly visit to Israel. They before a walk in our industrial neighborhood I see the corner were ahead this horrible accident with my skateboard. But I didn't cry I figured if my dad went through the Holocaust, surely it can handle a little pain. One summer might barracks drivel and they sent me up to a key boots to stay until their back. There I met a group of Germans who came to volunteer. It's the first time I see. German people the neighborhood kids used to beat me up for looking like a German. And indeed I bleed in. The leader of the group is hand every night we hang together after work. We'd eight grade level English. I, tell him about my hometown regionality on and he tells me on by the Berlin.

It was a form by Friedrich Schiller who has mice earning that was a surprise. Johan goes on and on. German words are pouring out of his mouth I never heard it. So closely before it's terrifying, I start to see images of Nazis Machine Jews into trailers skeletal humans behind barbed wires smoke coming out of gas chambers until ice cream stop and bushy on off me. Yawn seats they're all flustered. What am I, going to say that my entire life, the only times I heard German was in Holocaust movies. That the Germans did something to my dead but I don't know what because he never talks about it. Somehow it doesn't feel like our after work conversation. So I just say it hurts any point to his food that stepping on my toes. After deuce I think there's something wrong with my memory. It's not my memory. It's my that actually it's not even his because he never mentioned any of his memories. Still have these vivid images of horrific pain and I feel intimate with death, which is very unfortunate as I would much rather be intimate with your Johann. I need to do something about it. Plenty a heart to heart conversation with my dad I ask him dead what happened? Why don't you ever stand in attention during the siren? He says nothing and leaves the room. Plan B. Go to college. Here. I. Take some classes about the. Olympic theory of Freud I think my dad would be interested especially because his name is also zygmunt. Listens quietly as I explained and when I'm done, he says. Psychology is serious load of crap. So I decided to major in psychology. However. People talking about their emotions could be time consuming. So I decided to focus on a simpler form of human behavior mice. I like them. They never talk about emotions just like my dad only small and. Furry. Everyday, watch their behavior when they sense the smell of a Predator, the freezing, the corner when the here disowned of bill, they freezing the other corner I tried to change their behavior but the never forget what they're afraid of. In two thousand, four, a new movies out eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. The main character wants to raise clementine his ex girlfriend from his memories. He goes to doctor who has innovative technique to raise memories. The state of the art technology is a helmet you put on your head with some wires. The helmet technology. Inspires me. I discovered that the movie is based on a true experiment. There's a rehab at Nyu, the actual experiment. I managed to get some government funding my bags and move to New York. I show up at the very least that did the experiment and ask for a job. These, Nyu signed the found a way to change memories. They say that just the of remembering mixed in memory vulnerable. So you think your memory out of storage, it's loading their defenseless, deter the heated with drug. So now you can't get it back in storage it's blocked by the drug. So. It looks like there's one way memory lane. which I think is genius. The only problem is that. The only indication that this is true is in the form of a furry mouse that stopped freezing in the corner. So they give me a joke. My mission is to show that this actually works in real human beings. The way they do it is simple. I invite people to the lab and give them electric shocks. Before each show I show them a blue square after a few times I don't need to give the shocks anymore. They're really afraid of the blue squares. The next phase is to give the drug and get rid of the fear. One problem is. I don't actually have the drug. Experiments in humans are complicated Martin mice because of federal laws so. They're really streaked about giving drugs to people but pretty lenient about giving them electric shocks..

"Public interest, 93.9 FM and AM a 20 NPR News and the New York conversation. This's the moth radio, our PR I'm George Dar screen in this our stories about facing the dark. Here's the neuroscientist Daniella Schiller, telling her story at New York City's Webster Hall. It's done. I am Siren is heard across the country. Everybody stops everything and stands in attention. Whole country is posing for one minute of silence. It's a major violation of social rules. If you don't so everybody, does it men, women Children. Everybody except my dad. He just sits there continues to read the newspaper and sips his morning coffee. It doesn't even try to don't around, he says. That's how I know Memorial Day for the Holocaust started. This happens once a year, and it fell right on my yearly visit to Israel. They before I take a walk in our industrial neighborhood. I see the corner where ahead this horrible accident with my skateboard, But I didn't cry. I figured if my dad went through the Holocaust, surely you can handle a little pain. One summer my parents travel and they sent me up north to a kibbutz to stay until they're back. There. I met a group of Germans who came to volunteer. It's the first time I see German people. The neighborhood. Kids used to beat me up for looking like a German, and indeed I blend right in. The leader of the group is your home Every night we hang out together after work with eight grade level English. I tell him about my hometown. And he tells me about Berlin. One evening Yon brings a book of poems. I think he's about to kiss me, but I keep my cool and say cool, Go ahead and read. Suddenly I hear this flood of words in German. Fundy Live on. JJ took it. It was a form by Friedrich Schiller, who has mice earning. That was a surprise. Johan goes on and on these German words are pouring out of his mouth. I never heard it so closely before it's terrifying. I start to see images of Nazis pushing Jews into trailers. Skeletal humans behind barbed wires. Smoke coming out of gas chambers on delay Scream Stop and I pushed you on off me! John sits there all flustered. What am I going to say that my entire life? The only times I heard German was in Holocaust movies. What? The Germans did something to my dad. But I don't know what? Because it never talks about it. Somehow it doesn't feel like our after work conversation, So I just say it hurts any point to his food that is stepping on my toes. After this, I think there's something wrong with my memory. It's not my memory. It's my dad. Actually, it's not even he is because he never mentioned any of his memories. Still, I have these vivid images of horrific pain and I feel intimate with death, which is very unfortunate as I would much rather be intimate with Johan. I need to do something about it. Plenty. A heart to heart conversation with my dad. I asked him dead. What happened? Why didn't you ever standing attention during the siren? He says nothing and leaves the room. Plan B Go to college. Here I am. Take some classes about the psychoanalytic theory of Freud. I think my dad would be interested, especially because his name is also Zigmund. He listens quietly as I explain and when I'm done, he says. Psychology is a serious load of crap. So I decided to major in psychology. However, people talking about their emotions could be time consuming, so I decided to focus on a simpler form of human behavior. Mice. I like them. They never talk about emotions, just like my did only small and furry. Every day. I watch their behavior when they sense the smell of a predator, the freezing the corner When they hear the sound of a bell. They freeze in the other corner. I tried to change their behavior, but they never forget what they're afraid of. In 2000 for our new movies out eternal sanction of the spotless mind.

"Sergei Markov, off Friedrich Schiller University in Germany has tried to understand the trolls by adopting the mind of one I started with a kind of mental experiment trying to imagine what I would do her. I paid Internet troll. My boss would tell me to post some number tweets all saying the same thing. But with different words so he wouldn't tell me. Your task today is to write 1000 tweets or 10,000 tweets, all saying that Donald Trump is great, actually, and that would be a hard task. I would kind of relieving the number of targets words. President Trump grade and some synonyms of great but the number of times that I have to propose it is. Ah, they're big. I have to repeat myself as little as possible. Sell that my fake Internet accounts wouldn't be compromised, and I wouldn't be identified as a paid intern. Natural, right? So it means that words appear in these tweets in a subtly but nonetheless, Detective Lee Different way to how they might do in just everyday natural. Less show like communication. Yeah, I haven't analogy you could think about like this supposed that one day you come home from your work. You go, Teo Bathroom. You find your boss sitting there? That's a very unusual thing to find out your problem. And then is worse. You go down to your car on the backseat. You see our old schoolmate who's moved to Japan like 20 years ago currency in your world this time. What does it mean? How can you be so it's a mess? And that madness comes about because the associations air all wrong, So the place is a real familiar. The people are all familiar, but the association between those people and places is now completely disrupted. That's exactly what raise all about. The words are the same. The contracts are the same. But everything is mixed up. You know, there's a famous saying you should know. I work by the company to keeps It means that in natural languages, words are defined by their contexts. So words belong to their contexts. They don't move all over the place in some crazy matter. When we speak about troll tweets. We can say that with words and troll tweets, the run all close friends on the run or bitter enemies. All the words and just good acquaintances. Which brings us to the whole point of your research. So how do we identify the trolls and your homing in on the context of language? It's a linguistic approach, which contrasts with other approaches that have looked, for instance, geographical location or maybe the links that Charles Post up in their tweets. Or maybe these studies have looked at the use of hashtag those kinds of things. You're taking this linguistic approach. And, crucially, you're saying that it's a quicker way and that's very important because he wants to hopefully track these people down and closed their accounts down. This is a quicker way of finding them. How much quicker Is this approach Wait weaker, so we only need 50 tweets. To start making reliable Predictions by reliable I mean those with 86% accuracy. With only a few to tweets. And with every increase in the number of tweets, the accuracy of predictions goes up with Ah Still as few s 200 tweets. The mortal is almost unbearable. It's 99.99%. And given that trolls are turning out sweets incredibly quickly. Hundreds, maybe thousands of tweets a day. Within a few hours, possibly your average kick in and say, that's the trouble account on flag it up, maybe to be closed down. So it's very fast. It's very Eckert. Actually, I don't remember anyone even with millions off tweets to analyze coming. Even close to this receive squirrel. That's Sergei Monarch off site built homes and back on algorithms again. Not when we can throw algorithms at this troll problem, and that's going on here, but very much looking at the language, the construction of languages on language and how words associate with each other. Indeed, it's algorithms all the way down, really, basically resting on the back of a giant turtle floating through space Clearly. And in this case, I think it's fascinating. Just the basis in human psychology that the circus work is based on really, really fascinate me on understanding that there are limits to basically how much repetition a person can produce. How much variation you could get into your star when you asked to do the same task. Many, many times, and therefore you can use that to create a fingerprint on that. This then allows you to identify enough similarity to be able to categorise with a good degree of certainty in this case, tweets or language coming from the same source. And obviously it's really important that we deal with this sort of problem. Our social media overwhelmed with this sort of sort of malware. There's this misinformation these people who are trying to confuse not just a political discourse, but always any debate that happens online. To the point where the usefulness of these services is becoming limited. You can spend a lot of your time if you're a heavy user off Twitter or any of the other social media trying to block people trying to trap you and stuff like that. But that just takes away if I'm useful time in your life, So I'm really pleased to see some some significant and probably grounded work that might help me make it easier. All the social media players to identify and take down this this malicious and content bill. Thank you. For that we'll finally the power of data saving lives by predicting which regions are most vulnerable. Tio covert 19 outbreaks Now that's the idea behind the Africa Covert 19 Community Vulnerability Index is the first two of its kind across the continent. To have mapped out region by region where the risk areas are now the index doesn't predict where outbreaks and most likely instead it charts how well these regions are likely to cope with the disease. And it's a huge processing exercise, pulling together data on age epidemiology. Population density on countries health systems. The index comes from the Sergo Foundation body that combines behavioral science on artificial intelligence to improve lives. Thie, co founder and executive director is summer. This index. What it does is that it takes 48 countries and 751 regions across those 48 countries in Africa. And it looks at their ability to whether not only the health impact of this pandemic but also the social and economic impact, which is absolutely essential. So what kind of things does it look at Many different data points and those include things like old age, which we know is absolutely critical for the impact of cove. It looks at the strength of the health system. It looks that underlying socioeconomic conditions it looks at fragility, housing type transport. It's evidence based. It looks at all the factors that we know are critical for the impact of this pandemic. Other a few really big findings, maybe possibly surprising findings. That really jump out. See, One thing we're seeing is that the regions that are most highly vulnerable to the impact of this pandemic are actually concentrated in three countries. That's the Democratic Republic of Congo, Molly and Chad When we look across countries while they may have similar levels of vulnerability, the reasons why they may be vulnerable. Khun B. Quite different. For example, South Africa is highly vulnerable due to the underlying chronic conditions that are high levels in its population. Whereas when we look at a country like Chad, the underlying power levels of vulnerability, maybe due to socioeconomic factors, and then if we look to another country like Cameroon, Cameron is highly vulnerable because of the underlying fragility. And so what's really important about this index is not only does it tell you which countries or regions are highly vulnerable, but it also tells you why, so that we can be much more precise in our response to this pandemic. And of course, this is about data. It's about a lot of processing, really, to bring together. The whole lot of information. Sources together say that you can get these insights from the index. Can you give me a sense of the data challenge here for us To be able to know what's happening with this pandemic? We need good levels of testing. Testing levels across the continent, very humongously, but they're quite low and so given the fact that we don't have good data in terms of what this virus where it is and how it's going. We have to rely on a lot of other data sources to be able to make these kinds of predictions. And so we used many different sources of well validated data. One big data source is called the D. H s survey. This is a survey that's been happening for the last 20 years across the continent on it. Collect information on a lot of different variables. We've used data from the World Bank, the W. H O so many different data points and data sources came together to actually construct. This pretty data rich index. How do you even go about processing all that data off the shelf software tools he couldn't use to pull out the insights that you need or have you had to develop some of your own tools, maybe even a eye to really make sense of it all..

"Thank. You. I wanted to bring the conversation back to the title. Track all the album I think now you've already sort of alluded to this Mike about this being about teenage boy anxiety, but actually sort of read into this, this is bad mailings, ID and it sort of fits in with the other songs. I put up a post. Guys on the love that album group about this shit. Shit that goes on in my head and thinking about the lyrics to the song I thought about food to joy musically from Beethoven's symphony lyrics written by Friedrich Shelter Friedrich Schiller German poet, and the idea behind these words were about humanity coming together, and all men shelby brothers, so had do I realize that to angst in my paints that had all men being brothers everyone together. ALMANAC this is not a song of sexual frustration in the way, the next some frustrated is this is a song about getting out on in an inconvenient time in. At one point the Song Russell is singing. You can be smart as hell. No head, who had no head of figured things on yellow heads? You can dress nautical. Let Tie knots tech remain out on your yacht, and the theme of this is, it doesn't matter whether you're rich or poor whether you're an academic or you never got beyond primary school your Dick Is. This is a thing. It doesn't matter what you believe any of these things you can hide someone else. All you like underneath your skin. That's it the one thing that Gonna tie every man together at just thinking about mankind, and they sing a lot about male anxiety on this album is the ability to have an erection. It doesn't matter. Friedrich Schiller wrote about all men shelby brothers. Brothers a singing about all men shall have hard on. This is really funny because I never heard ore surmise that it was about having erection, and this is a song that I have thought long and hard about in. Walked right into that I. Love that one to your Mars. To me at it's not specifically male. It's about trying to live with a secret and you can't. Because as it says, what's the computer say it says Hey Joe I'm here. Alot. You can't get away from this. And that's the angst in your pants. And I always just thought that was clever. Turn of phrase I literally pants related. It's very powerful to me again. I'm very moved by this emotionally. This idea that I'm going. Going to try to cover up on very smart look I. Can do math a look. I'm a fancy guy with a boat, but still there's this secret that I'm desperate feud, not know and that will always control my life. Liberalness of having angst in your pants works with that interpretation of just being a deep dark secret, because having direction when you're becky's home for -Sconsin t, it's not convenient timing. Are you don't want anyone. Actually thought of isn't expire at felt like it can kind of allude to sort of like a more sexual parade nature, but also that lied. Give it one hundred years. It won't go away I. Don't know why that line of this other so remains a song. Just every line's a great line in it. I just kind of just natural angst, which can be like? Yeah. I've got a boner at a very non voter epic time. It, just be kind of like Mike. I love your return as I love you, know the whole thing of just having something in word that you're just angry about it in high having to hide it, and you can't let it out and you can't show it, but it's there. It's a part of you, and it is not going away desparation to control it. It controls you exactly. Again per the cleverness at this band. Is that even when you think they're being obvious and aren't always obvious and you guys like I'm totally crazy, but a being that actually just hit me like a minute ago. Thinking KPN's Sarah that are clever citizenship. Great saw writing can speak to like the anxiety and angst, our human condition, sometimes in a very funny way is the cars? Oh, absolutely, oh, my God and Solo. I embarrassed that they didn't come up in the conversation on my. When it hit me I like fuck.

"Thank. You. I wanted to bring the conversation back to the title. Track all the album I. Think now you've already sort of alluded to this Mike about this. Being about teenage boy anxiety, but actually sort of read into this, this is bad mailings ID and it sort of fits in with the other songs I put up a post. Guys on the love that album group about this shit that. That goes on in my head and thinking about the lyrics to the song I thought about a to joy musically from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony Lyrics written by Friedrich Shelter Friedrich, Schiller German poet, and the idea behind these words were about humanity coming together, and all men shelby brothers, so had do I realize that to angst in my paints that had all men being brothers everyone together. ALMANAC this is not a song of sexual frustration. In the way, the next some frustrated is this is a song about getting out on in an inconvenient time in. At one point, the Song Russell is singing. You can be smart as hell. No head, who had no head of figured things on yellow heads? You can dress nautical. Let Tie knots tech remain out on your yacht and the theme of this is. It doesn't matter whether you're rich or poor whether you're an academic or you never got beyond primary school, your Dick is. This is a thing. It doesn't matter what you believe any of these things you can hide someone else. All you like underneath your skin. That's it the one thing that Gonna tie every man together at just thinking about mankind, and they sing a lot about male anxiety on this album is the ability to have an erection. It doesn't matter. Friedrich Schiller about all men shelby brothers. Brothers a singing about all men shall have hard on. This is really funny. Because I never heard ore surmise that it was about having erection, and this is a song that I have thought long and hard about in. And walked right into that. I love that one to your Mars. To me at it's not specifically male, it's about trying to live with a secret and you can't. Because as it says, what's the computer say it says Hey Joe I'm here alot. You can't get away from this. And that's the angst in your pants. And I always just thought that was clever. Turn of phrase I literally pants related. It's very powerful to me again. I'm very moved by this emotionally. This idea that I'm going. Going to try to cover up on very smart look, I can do math a look I'm a fancy guy with a boat, but still there's this secret that I'm desperate feud, not know and that will always control my life. Liberalness of having angst in your pants works with that interpretation of just being a deep dark secret, because having direction when you're becky's home for -Sconsin t, it's not convenient timing. Are you don't want anyone. Actually, thought of isn't expire at felt like it can kind of allude to sort of like a more sexual parade nature, but also that lied. Give it one hundred years. It won't go away I. Don't know why that line of this other so remains a song. Just every line's a great line in it I, just kind of just natural angst, which can be like yeah. I've got a boner at a very non voter time. It just be kind of like Mike. I love your return as I love, you know the whole thing of just having something in word that you're just angry about it in high having to hide it, and you can't let it out and you can't show it, but it's there. It's a part of you, and it is not going away desperation to control it. It controls you exactly. Again per the cleverness at this band. Is that even when you think they're being obvious and aren't always obvious and you guys like I'm totally crazy, but a being that actually just hit me like a minute ago. Thinking KPN's of this era that are clever citizenship. Great saw writing can speak to like the anxiety and angst, our human condition, sometimes in a very funny way is the cars. Oh, absolutely, oh, my God and Solo I embarrassed that they didn't come up in the conversation on my. Room. When it hit me I like fuck, why did I think about it? was such mainstream successful versions of all this stuff I think. I forget about that sometimes right now, and it's easy to the are one of those dance that like people have almost every stripe. You'd have family members that early. How Yeah I've occurs greatest says are very straight laced through the pink. People will like the cars. Then you could be a total person. That's like Yeah I. Love Suicide. Will you live suicide that you also have the cards sleigh? Sparks cars.
