markets have been reacting to the testimony of Jay Powell the Federal Reserve chair Today on Capitol Hill and we have our senior stocks editor Dave Wilson to report on what's going on in the market It's a lot of action Oh absolutely I mean let's bear in mind If you're focusing in on stocks the S&P 500 is down even before the testimony began the loss is the really accelerated You know it's one thing to kind of be going back and forth in terms of what the Elmer crown variant of the coronavirus is doing It's another to hear Jay Powell talk about how inflation may be isn't so transitory and they may be so ratcheting up their policy moves You know put that all together you see the S&P 500 down one and a half percent at this point We've seen swings in a bond market We even see outside a drop in gold which had been up at 1.1 and a half percent And let me tell you when you look at treasuries lately you've definitely seen some swings in the ten year And beyond that what's happening is you're seeing a narrowing of the gaps when you look at bonds in terms of yields And that's kind of a sign that inflation is really front and center It's been going on for some time but we saw more of it today which is consistent with the idea that there's much more of a policy focus at the fed as a result of what's happening on the inflation front So you know beyond that I mean you look at what's going on in the stock market certainly what we're seeing in terms of the vaccine is an issue Some losses among some vaccine makers notably Moderna whose CEO among others is talking about how this variant may be an issue in terms of their vaccines It is interesting though it is kind of a mixed bag You've got Pfizer up and yet it's German partner BioNTech is down in U.S. trading Similar story with novavax being higher at this point So that's part of the mix as well In terms of the backdrop that we're seeing here Energy stocks taking a hit too And we've seen that story in the past few days play out because of the concern about how the virus may affect the economy going forward Now you throw in what may be happening on the inflation front and it kind of if nothing else ratchets up the level of concern here So Dave Wilson our senior stocks editor I'm going to say you can see from that why it's been such a pleasure working with Dave Wilson I hope you're back to Marc If we may have testimony interrupting him but in case it's been a privilege and a pleasure working with you today Thank you And now we have some breaking news and a Bloomberg exclusive David Marcus is leaving meta after 7 years He is one of the top executives there He joined Facebook's parent company in 2014 from PayPal Marcus ran the messenger service for years before forming the blockchain division He co created the DM digital currency for meta but struggled to get that off the ground He will now be pursuing other projects and we will have much more on this scoop coming up later Now we're going to turn back to omicron COVID cases were on the rise in the United States before that omicron is variant hit Where are we now and where are we likely headed We turned down to someone on the front lines Dr. Laura foreman She is chief of emergency medicine at Kent hospital in Rhode Island So doctor thank you so much for being with us As I say omicron as far as I know has not made it to Rhode Island yet I hope not But what are you seeing before we get to Amy crown in your hospital So even before the arrival of Omaha we certainly have been strained here You know we have shortages across the board and staffing particularly in nursing staffing and shortages in space as well just due to both cases of COVID and then what we believe are probably some of the delayed effects from the pandemic in which people didn't initially seek care They weren't as many preventative services being accessed early on And so we're certainly seeing a lot of both COVID and non COVID related cases throughout the hospital straining us and hospitals across the country So how much restraint is let me ask you specifically there was an order from the governor of New York saying let's do away with some voluntary surgeries In the meantime are you having to move some things that are discretionary off to the side We're doing everything we can not to at this point I certainly understand the governor of New York's viewpoint in this And we had done that at times previously but we had seen with some negative downstream effects from that So we were doing everything we can at this point to keep all elective procedures and I'll preventive care as up and running as possible I have to ask how are your people doing How are the doctors How are the nurses in particular We've heard a lot of stories and nurses really facing some burnout and really understaffed because it's hard to get to people to recruit the new people that you need These have been some extraordinary times for all of us in healthcare I mean to work in healthcare takes a pretty unique kind of person to begin with And this is certainly a difficult job even in the best of times And these have not been the best of times I'm privileged to work with some truly extraordinary people here in Rhode Island who have just done amazing things day after day It takes an incredible amount of strength but this has been an overwhelming time It's been a stressful time It's been a scary time to be honest So we certainly are seeing the effects of burnout We certainly are seeing the effects of staff shortages and resource shortages on the staff here So as you look forward to omikron maybe that's not the right way to put it Look forward to it but anticipated at least because a lot of people are saying sooner or later it's going to get here We don't know exactly what the clinical consequences that will be as I understand it How bad it might be But give us a sense of the vaccination rates in Rhode Island How are you doing I understand you're up toward the top of the pack We are We're very proud of that Our state is done a tremendous job in getting folks vaccinated here We certainly are very proud of that Even so we're seeing still a lot of unvaccinated people in some vaccine resistance But the bigger concern to me is not just what's going on here but what's going on across the globe I mean I think oh my friend is really shown a light on this It's coming out of Southern Africa where the vaccination rates are much lower I spent some time working in Burundi and sub Saharan Africa right now the vaccine rate is less than 0.1% Right which is if you look at United Emirates switched up the top of the list at 90% of its population be vaccinated That's a huge disparity And I think this is really showing us as much as anything how important it is to treat this as a global thing You know we have been very fortunate to have a lot of vaccine available in this country But most countries in the world don't have that luxury And if you look at the map of vaccines if most of Africa is severely under vaccinated at this point in time and that's where these variants are going to grow and that's where they're going to spread from And in variance in the coronavirus doesn't stop at the border You know it doesn't care what your passport is It doesn't care where you're from And there's really no way to keep it out It takes one person crossing a border and coming in whether that person is from South Africa or from the U.S..

U.S. plans to ship 6 million Moderna doses
"Vaccine out very soon. On Tuesday, the FDA confirmed that modern is to dose vaccine is safe and effective. The first week of the rollout of the Madonna vaccine were expected to ship out six million doses. The government also bought another 100 million doses from and Erna or a total of 200 million at a cost of 3.2 billion. More on all the good vaccine is will speak to Sarah over mall Healthcare reporter at Politico. This is basically deja vu for last week, so the fighter vaccine it was authorized by FDA last week on very similar data, which is why we are pretty confident about the trajectory for this, Madonna one. We expect that after a expert advisory panel meets on Thursday, the FDA could be authorizing it as In as Friday morning as it did the visor. And then we will have a CDC panel meeting over the weekend to talk about recommendations for who this goes to first. But because they are really similar vaccines, they have a very similar technology called Messenger RNA. They also have almost identical, effective district. We can expect some of the same things. There are some important distinctions for them. Oh, Darrin. I want especially with her and populations that they have different data for. For instance, it shows that it's more effective and younger people than it is in people over the age of 65. That could be a really important distinction. As we roll these this is out and find out that maybe the size or one is more ideal for nursing homes and the Magenta. One might be more ideal for people who work in high exposure areas but are necessarily is older. Somebody who's any more vulnerable situation. So these are the things we're gonna find out over the next few days. But All right. We could, as of next week have a million more doses to be shipping out across the country. The initial round of doses are obviously limited. How many doses air we're gonna be able to see Go out in the first push. So they're actually really more of the mod Janet. This is out in the first post than there were of the Visor. One's government officials have said that nearly six million will be put out into more than 3000 sites. Next week. If we do have this authorized, which were expected to that's in comparison to shoot 0.9 million doses from Kaiser that going out as we speak and 2.9 million from visor that had been held back for a second dose so between the two of them Each has promised 20 million doses. A piece this month, which is 40 million total. But they all are Cheetos regiments. You can think of this as 20 million very high need people getting doses this month. There was some criticism with the government's action on the visor vaccine for not buying that extension or extra doses. But on this case with the Madonna vaccine, the U. S. It exercise their right to buy 100 million additional doses of the Madonna vaccine. Tell us a little bit about that. And then the cost associated with it? Because this one is a little more closely tied to operation warp speed. The government gave Moderna more money to develop this whole thing. Exactly. And so they had options with both of those pharmaceutical companies to buy 100 million doses originally, But the option to buy hundreds of millions more with each of them to christen lately has been that they did not exercise that option when they could have with visor, So they had an option to buy up to 500 million doses from them. And according to size, sir, they offered that to the government multiple times in the government didn't take them up on that. And so they moved on. They have signed multiple different agreements with other countries in the world. I mean, think about the entire world Once he's highly effective vaccines so kind of to them that loss or TOC shore up our supplies here in the United States, the United States announced late last week that they would buy 100 million more of the Modano vaccine, and that brings the total cost more damage to 3.2. Million dollars, which is I popping. But when you think about how much his company which has never actually mass produced a vaccine or product ever before Madonna, this is going to be their first authorized products. The huge undertaking. That's why there's so much money going towards this. So you can think about this as the U. S trying to shore up its supplies in this arena, but it also has multiple other agreements out there with Six manufacturers total to get if everything goes right, 900 billion doses that might seem like Ah, lot like way too much for the U. S. But we don't know how many of those air going toe work. We even just learned last week that another vaccine from Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline is going to be delayed until the end of 2021 because they didn't get really good results. So this is why the U. S government betting so big Yeah, and the modern of vaccine, for its part is easier to ship and store them. The Fizer one is so you know, maybe this vaccine will make it into rule areas a little more easily. So there's benefits you know, and pros and cons to each one kind of on this, so at least a good thing that they bought a bunch of those extra orders. And last thing I wanted to ask real quick was just about How much the Madonna vaccine protects. There's been things made that it can reduce severe effects of coronavirus. They're hoping obviously, that it'll reduce transmission rates. But that's kind of what the focus was of their study as well. And just how effective this would be. So that was something we learned in the Food and Drug Administration briefing documents Tuesday morning was that not only is this effective broadly, but there's a suggestion that after the first dose in my daddy didn't have curbed infections, and you might think that's pretty obvious. That's what vaccine you just supposed to do. But we don't actually know yet how effective vaccines would be a preventing transmission, which is kind of the ultimate goal. We don't want people to have to get sick in the first place. This indicates that the magenta vaccine might be able to do that and then, like you said with severe Covert illness. There are really promising results from the Madonna vaccine. There were 30 severe illnesses in the placebo arm and none in the vaccine arm. That's great news. So we actually have between this adviser to really promising candidates. First out of the gate. We kind of couldn't expect the Better To be honest, too. Now, you know, it's the challenge of getting this out to people getting into the people who need it most right away and meeting the demand that we know we're gonna have and the United States and also in the world.

He's actually being paid $1000 same basic principle, though it's a lump sum. That's a lot less than what he'd be paid on a salary.

When Louisville police raided Briana Taylor's apartment, then shot and killed her. Ah police officer was also shot. That man has now filed a civil lawsuit against Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker. The officer claims that Walker quote willingly or maliciously shot him while officers were serving the No. Knock warrant. Eleanor Klibanoff from member station W F P L has more In plain clothes. Louisville Police enter Briana Taylor's apartment in the early morning hours of March, 13th Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly was at the front of the group down the hallway. He saw Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, holding a gun. Here's Mattingly, speaking on ABC last week, he wasn't shooting at the ground warning shot. He's pushed out with two hands looking straight at me Wi I saw his gun. Our postures were the same looking at each other. When he fired that shot. Walker fired one shot striking Mattingly in the leg. Mattingly and two other officers returned fire 32 shots, six of which struck Taylor, killing her. Walker told police later he believed they were intruders and filed a lawsuit seeking immunity from prosecution under Kentucky, stand your ground laws. But now Mattingly has filed a counter suit, arguing that Walker knew they were police and fired at them intentionally anyway, causing him trauma and mental anguish. The suit says Walker's conduct was quote outrageous, intolerable and offends all accepted standards of decency and morality. Mattingly also wants the lawsuit against the city and the officers dropped because of qualified immunity. The idea that government officials could only be sued for violating rights that are clearly established in case law. Police officers suing a civilian and Court for emotional distress is unprecedented. Gloria Brown Marshall teaches constitutional law at John Jay College at the City University of New York. Sergeant Mattingly. Wants to have it both ways he wants to be shielded by qualified immunity. And also bring an action as though he is a civilian individual who's been injured by another civilian, She said. This could open the door to any government employees suing a civilian for mental anguish or distress caused by doing their job. Steve reminds represents Kenneth Walker, he said. This countersuit is concerning to him on another front can, he could be setting for defending himself in his own residence. Make no mistake that all lawful gunowners rights or risk and actually scare everyone. Walker was charged with attempted murder of a police officer. The Jefferson County commas attorney dropped those charges in May, but said there could be other charges against Walker once all of.

He's a final cut pro expert who has been using the absence like the early days of the software I think when it yet cert- up with a crank or something. Now Lee is the expert. He's talking all over the world these days. Virtually we're GONNA talk about how his business has changed as an editor that's Kinda stuck sheltering in place like the rest of us Lee Herbert Welcome showman how you doing. Much. I'm much like the rest of the will of surviving this year. So yeah, we we're getting. We're we're we're based in Melbourne. So we are now in I think we twelve or thirteen time has no relevance anymore of of lockdown here. So Yeah, it's It is what it is. It is what? gives us the the Reader's Digest. Story the first resume paragraph of WHO Lee Herbert is. Yeah, the first line, which ironically as an editor I, struggle to keep things brief when I'm talking. which. Because as an editor, obviously your main job is to make sure that you tell your story in the most short and succinct way. But when I'm telling marine. Story. But. So a little bit about me I have had many over the years but I worked in the apple wheels for ten years of a favorite Tom was that as a final per China. But at the same time, I also did a lot of theatre and TV and things like that and so I sort of ended up wanting to do a lot more production work. So I left Apple. Back in two thousand, thirteen I think two, thousand, thirty, two, thousand, fourteen, and started mining production company I. Still focused a favorite on training really enjoy the training side of things but yes oh, you know thankfully, we've been going from strength strength and so been doing. Mostly corporate videos for large and medium and sometimes small corporate clients my passion Israeli documentaries because I. Love. I love telling people stories in learning people's stories and Yes. BUYS. That's that's the the high level view of what I do and why do it? That's cool and you love this stuff I mean you you've been editing on I mean obviously as evidenced by posters on the wall behind you, you are a fan of apple products? And you have not working. We're apple a for a while since I've known you've been contracting on an offer. Those guys, right. Yeah it's. Yes on an. been doing doing stuff for them. Luckily I get to do stuff for up dump stuff cerny done stuff for a lot of stuff in the medical field. So we worked visor with books for GlaxoSmithKline. Quite a few local companies here as well. Obviously was the big stuff. But yes I've been doing a lot of corporate and I really. It's funny. The corporate side of things I think photography might get this quite a lot as well is that I get quite a lot of friends of mine who are in the field but they work more in in narrative do soap operas they do movies and things like that and they say to me Oh you know I'd hate to do corporate stuff because you sort of a confined and be. You know you might not have. A particularly exciting product to talk about and I was like, yeah. But that's like that's the really cool thing for me is I love the idea of having to look at a widget and go how can I make this widget coup? How can I find the story and helped tell the widget story so that you know the people can get it like I was just having a virtual meeting with a client earlier this week in you know she was saying that they want to build a relationship with the production company because I don't just want to talk about the speeds and feeds of what they sell they WanNa talk about the benefits they want to talk about you know. got these cool buttons but here's why does cool buttons are going to make your life better and here's why you should buy it. So I really like that aspect of. Doing corporate work yeah, yeah, this whole world though you know as you as you look at just sort of the shifting of where things are right now, you know like the title of this, the stream slash recording is editing an isolation and as you and I were talking about offline last week I think it was there has been some positive you know obviously. You know the whole thing is negative. There's no way to spin it as positive but there are some cracks in the clouds and that are revealing new revenue streams that you didn't have prior to the whole pandemic. He talked about that a little bit of how things have shifted from Lee. Herbert hopping on a plane first-class to go to a gig versus. Lebron up skype in firing of invoices. What does it look like? It's definitely Dif- Liam. been quite different from that. So I'll given. So obviously like I had when when everything sort of started going crazy I had at least five to ten jobs that were either put on hold canceled, and obviously I'm not going to get flourine outs to the USO Asia wherever it is GonNa fly me out to to shoot stuff for them but the interesting converse of that is. Interestingly enough events because my my company we do we do a few events. We got a couple of in the middle of the year and then a couple at the end of the year. But like regular ones, men bits and bobs coming but we didn't really do a lot of events and funnily enough a lot of the work that's coming from lately is from virtual conferences. So I've had quite a few corporate clients who they've got staff members who are presenting it at virtual conferences, and thankfully they have realized very quickly that just doing it on a Webcam is not a good look for the company. I think we've all kind of like one of my biggest concerns when when the whole lockdown thing started is if you watch the news just about everyone that they were interviewing on the news, which is in the terrible lighting situation with you know they they elect either under the nose looking straight up they nose as what will up somewhere and you got people in the background working with their underwear it was. Dogs and cats living together complete my him and I was looking at that going. Oh, my goodness I. Really Hope People don't get used to it and go. Okay. Well, this is just how you know. You're not going to have good lighting. You're not going to have good camera. You're not gonNa have good microphone and we just going to be eastern that's going to be fine. I was like I'm out of work. This is awful. But thankfully, what's happened is a lot of my clients have looked gaunt. Yeah. You know we could do better. So there's been a favorite of consulting but I've done. So locally here in Melbourne between lockdowns, I worked with quite a few clients who realize that they were going to be working from home lot. Warn I helped them get even if it was just bit a webcams or just. A little you know like, for example, a lot of them when they could get them in stock. This thing called the Algata cam link between you and me there's tons of these for twenty bucks on Amazon that you can get instead of big fancy expensive ones. which allow you to connect.

Operation Warp speed is the Trump Administration's pushed to make a Corona virus vaccine in record time. Its chief scientific adviser is former pharmaceutical executive Moncef Slowey. He has GlaxoSmithKline investments, and he's allowed to hang on to them. That's even though GlaxoSmithKline is receiving $2.1 billion in federal funding to work on a Corona virus vaccine. He called the stock his retirement and promised to donate any excessive profits to the National Institutes of Health. But a House subcommittee released documents Tuesday showing he doesn't have to do that while he's alive. The subcommittee also found three other operation warp speed consultants with potential financial conflicts.

Nine Pharma CEOs Commit to the “Integrity of the Scientific Process” in COVID-19 Vaccine Trials
"Breaking news out of the former suitable sector. Let's get to make. Good Morning. Good Morning Joe Nine. CEO's of some of the largest drug companies in the world announcing they've signed onto what they're calling a historic pledge to uphold the scientific integrity and put safety first as they are developing covid nineteen vaccines. These are basically the front runners in the vaccine race for covid nineteen, all of the companies involved in operation warp speed in addition to Merck Pfizer and its partner biotech Astra Zeneca Madonna GlaxoSmithKline Sanofi Johnson and Johnson and Nova VACs all signing onto this pledge to do essentially four things. They say always make safety and wellbeing of vaccinated people a top priority continue to adhere to high scientific and Ethical Standards Regarding. The conduct of clinical trials and the rigor of their manufacturing process they pledged to submit for approval or emergency use authorization after demonstrating safety and efficacy through phase three clinical studies designed to design and conducted to meet regulatory guidelines through a regulatory authorities like the FDA, and they say to work to ensure sufficient supply and range of vaccine options including those suitable for global access. They say quote we believe this pledge will help ensure public confidence in the rigorous scientific and regulatory process by which covid nineteen vaccines are evaluated and may ultimately approved and guys. This comes as vaccine development is moving at unprecedented speeds and we are hearing about some hesitancy. From folks to believe in the process and to be comfortable taking these vaccines especially as the FDA's leadership has come under question about political influence regarding convalescent plasma and hydroxy chloroquine in a recent change research and CB poll about thirty percent of people said that they either definitely not or probably not take covid nineteen vaccine, and so guys the company is trying to step in here to tell the public, they will keep safety I. Yeah. It's in response to rumors that we'd get an emergency youth authorization for for one of these vaccines before completing. The process there's always pressure on the FDA. obviously in especially with you know we're talking about life and death situations with with some of these drugs to to cut corners and I think they're just you know they're just putting it out there that especially with so many people when. Vaccines are such A. Controversial even before this people, you know what? The Anti Vaccine and everything else and we do remember back with with polio before we knew everything luckily nothing happened but you need to be sure. His longtime ago we know so much more and we know what's in vaccines. We know the scientific basis for how they worked meg. So I, I would be comfortable with. with one of these, the ad no mediated. Vaccine or you know if there's a small stretch of Messenger Aurigny I'll give it a shot I. I'm not overly concerned with with like contamination by some horrific virus that we don't see or something like that. You know make so. A wary public needs to be. Absolutely certain that that. We've. Crossed all the cross the is and cross. The is in dotted the teeth I just wanted to know we are coming up on that and that final stretch and the vaccine development process sort of inconceivably because this only begin in January really. But when we get to the end of October that's when Pfizer is indicating that they may see results about whether they're vaccine works and the FDA has scheduled advisory committee meeting of outside advisers, October twenty second, and so a lot of people are gonNA be looking at that date and saying, are we going to see data and how transparent will this process be So these are nine major drugmakers saying that their first priority is safety and I think this is hugely important not only for building public confidence in. A covert vaccine, but for protecting the sanctity of vaccines in general broader, we've had discussions with Scott gottlieb about this. The reason you don't want to rush through and push something out there that hasn't been thoroughly vetted with a phase three trial is that if there were problems with it, not only would it convince people not to take a Kovin vaccine, but it could undo a lot of the work that's been done with other vaccination programs around the globe I mean Joe. Brought up polio. Well, Jonas salk actually. Vaccinated his children. As some of the very first people testing this out so you know that was something he felt one hundred percent confident with we don't do things that way anymore. But there has been so much that that we have done with vaccinations diseases that we don't even think about anymore because over the last fifty years or so you know they've they've they've kind of gone away up very common This is just important not only for covert vaccination, but for faith in the vaccination system at large. Yeah it's so fragile. Public Health experts are incredibly concerned that a misstep here when vaccines are so important could shake the the fragile confidence in the vaccine system in general, and as you pointed out, it's this terrible irony of vaccines that they have rendered all these terrible diseases sort of non existent, and so we don't appreciate that vaccines did that for us. So there's a lot on the line here.

It Looked As Though Millions Of Babies Would Miss Out On A Lifesaving Vaccine
"Two million. That is the number of babies who were at risk. Because the pharmaceutical company, Merck stopped providing lifesaving doc seen to several west African countries at the same time. Merckx was going to start selling the vaccine at a higher price to China NPR broke that story last fall. And now we have good news to report those babies will still get the vaccine as NPR's. Mike, lean do cleft reports other companies are now stepping in the vaccine is for a disease called Rotavirus, which infects basically. Every child on the planet every child. Whether you live in the US so you live in doping country is infected with this disease. That's Dr mature Santo, Shem Johns. Hopkins University pediatrician in an expert on Rotavirus. He says the disease causes very severe diarrhea here in the US children can easily get treatment at a hospital, but in poor countries without good healthcare systems would've virus can be deadly. It can be a very severe disease. Like I've seen kids died in front of my eyes. Santos says Rotavirus still kills about two hundred thousand children in babies each year. Because families in poor countries can't afford the vaccine here in the US it cost about two hundred dollars a course. So back in two thousand twelve the two companies that manufactured a vaccine Merck GlaxoSmithKline agreed to drastically, reduce the price for low income countries to about ten dollars a course Merck would supply four countries in west Africa in GlaxoSmithKline with supply, forty two countries. Cintos says this was great news could should not be denied vaccine, just because they belong to a poor country. Muck stuck to that agreement for six years, then last year, the company announced it was ending the agreement at the same time, Merck started selling the vaccine to China and a much higher price. Deborah Athalie is at the nonprofit path, which helps develop vaccines for poor countries. She says the global health community was alarmed. You have a, a major manufacturer of a vaccine announcing that they're going to exit from the market. And I think it created a bit of a panic for countries that were accustomed to having this vaccine. It also meant that more than two million babies in Burkina Faso Ivory coast. Mali in Sao Tome, Principe would go without the vaccine. That was November two thousand eighteen at the time. Moore told NPR in an Email that the reason for the pilot was supply constraints. The company also expressed quote, deepest regret to all the parties involved. Soon after NPR reported that story other vaccine manufacturers stepped up to fill in the gap. Glaxosmithkline is now supplying one country with the vaccine, and Athalie says to Indian companies Bharat biotech in serum institute of India will supply, the other countries in thirty says, no child will miss out on immunization because of Merck's termination of the agreement. We do not anticipate that any countries will have a gap in vaccinating their children. And so you think of this is a pretty big success story. It, it is we deal with tons of challenges in global health, and this is one where the global health community rallying around with the countries has really created success a success. That means millions of babies will now be protected

"I'm Audie Cornish. Ari? Shapiro today. Global health officials are making history. They're rolling out the first vaccine aimed at stopping malaria malaria, infects more than two hundred million people a year. And it's one of the biggest killer of children worldwide in Africa more than a quarter million kids die each year from the disease that scene has taken thirty years to develop and as NPR's Michael do cleft reports toddlers in Malawi will be the first to get it back in the mid nineteen eighties. Scientists at Walter Reed Army is to toot here in the US started developing an experimental malaria vaccine the first version failed. So they teamed up with the company now known as GlaxoSmithKline and try it again, then they started seeing promising results in the Petri dish thirty years later that Beck scene is finally ready to be given to kids in the countries that need it. The most those in sub Saharan Africa were extremely excited that we're at the point of being able. To do pilot introductions in the areas where malaria is actually causing the death and disease. That's Deborah Athalie who these vaccine deployment at path a nonprofit, which has helped developed the vaccine every two minutes a child or baby in sub Saharan Africa dies of malaria in some places Abadie can have six thousand in just one year Athalie points out that this vaccine is one of the few to be designed and launched specifically for children across Africa. I think that's that's also really really important milestone in survey seen development and introduction. Most vaccines are targeted for people in rich countries because they are expensive to make. But this vaccine has been heavily subsidized by GSK foundations in governments starting today. Toddlers in the Lao or see the vaccine then kids in Kenya. In ghana. The initial goal is to immunize about three hundred sixty thousand children over the next few years. But. The vaccine isn't a silver bullet for malaria for starters kids. Need four doses of the vaccine for it to be affective for families in rural areas for trips to clinic could be hard. The second problem is the vaccine isn't super effective the vaccine efficacy is much lower than many of our other childhood vaccines. That's William off he directs the international vaccine access center in his an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins University, he says the vaccine protects kids only about thirty percent of the time by comparison mini childhood vaccines offer eighty or ninety percent protection the buzz around the vaccine is warranted. So many children get malaria in Africa that even a weak vaccine can have a big impact on communities health. There are estimates. That one live would be saved for every two hundred children who are vaccinated. So.

You know, they're selling your information or they're actually gonna use it for drugs. And then I find out that was the plan on long it used to be. Hey, we're just a happy little company that wants to give you information about your DNA. And now it's all along we were going to sell it to Biogen companies. We will do bio harvesting we want to make our bottom line bigger. We went to continue the big plans with other countries to take DNA and use it for their purposes. And I say hold on hold the phone hold the phone. You guys were doing this and you were using deceptive practices to get people to voluntarily spit into a Cup. So you can manipulate their DNA and use it for other things. This is bio- harvesting. And it's almost like a new form of vampirism, in my opinion. Yeah. You know, I was watching something about toback scenes, and they were talking about how they're chopping up DNA strands into small bits and injecting it now through vaccines. So who knows we all this is going to right? And the thing is now we live in times where you have to think about these things because you'll be part we thought it was all science fiction. But now, it's fact now, you're you're you're cognitive liberties has taken even your physical liberties at stake. It's like it's almost like, you know, we have to add another amendment to the constitution to say, not only should we avoid unlawful search and seizure. But we have to also try and fight people unlawfully searching and seizing our DNA and using it for their own for their own reasons. But see this is voluntarily did they do any voluntarily? So I mean, what do you do if you're voluntarily giving up your DNA to someone that you don't know who they are? I mean, I guess you make your bed you sleep in it. But I I would say you don't use them discretionary. Discernment put on the blindfold of discernment and say, I'm not going to do this. Oh, that's why I'm really thankful that you're getting the information out. Can I ask because some of us like I said, I'm kinda dinosaur being seventy plus. Let me get the information from you, literally good. I thank you. Listen to my show on you rock with me. So give me in your seventies as many can't rock.

"I mean, I read between the lines. I'm saying, wow, they're trying to make sure that they're not taking away business from physicians and people who go to traditional doctors to get their cancer analysis. So they told them they couldn't do that anymore. And then after they negotiated that shutdown. They came back and they altered the data. So that now my report shows up a little differently. And it's got limited one limited information. Right. So that is part of the history of how this involved, but I would hope that you're able to find someone who will share their whole test with you. So you can see that. There is you know, genetic risk everything from macular degeneration, Sealy X disease. Parkinson's just goes on and on whether you have an alcohol. To your doctor. You know, I actually was told by my natural paths because I don't frequent MD's Catholic medicine. I was told that I should enter this data into a competitor's company or an edge company that took this data assimilated it, and then suggested different drugs or in this case. Vitamins and nutrients that would help deal with my particular constitution, and it came up with the whole like Ben diagram and bar graphs. And all this data told by my whole a sequence and said, you should buy these drugs from us. The same this. I was gonna say the same DNA information is probably being looked at right now by GlaxoSmithKline in several other drug in bio, engineering companies for other reasons that you don't even know about that. I probably would think. Wow. Why did I choose to do this test? Because it feels like I'm giving up information that I would want to be confidential because they kind of made me believe that you could choose to release your information to like your relatives that we're looking for. So I get an Email every few months and says, oh, you have twenty seven new relatives. And you know, some of them will send you an Email and say would you like to share your your ancestry data portion? Right. So you know, I've done that. I found a second cousin third cousin through that. But so what I mean a lot of stuff like that. The library. Yes. A lot of things could be found the library like that. And so they're telling you, hey, you wanna find out if you have a sister or brother you want to find out whether you you should wear lederhosen kill look in a library. You can find out that information, you're gonna genealogical libraries, they're online, and they're provided for you. So if you want to pay that money to do that research, that's what it is. But just to throw your spit in a Cup and expect them to give you everything you need to know. I mean, he's not only they're giving you that information. They're giving a drug company or some other Biogen company that information, and I just think it's kind of a a a nightmarish term to call a bio harvesting because now they're going to other countries and taking the blood of people or they're taking the spirit of people so they can make their database a little bit more. I guess you could say well rounded for those who are of color, which I think is is amazing to me. Henrietta lacks story. I was aware of that. And it reminds me of where I mean, I don't remember how they got the bio maps from her at the hospital that.

"I don't think I have to remind you. But I'll remind a lot of people anyway because I don't shut up. Technocrat? And a lot of people the department of defense and organizations dealing with. What they call extinction weapons. Okay. They have this insatiable desire for data, and they will pursue it wherever and whenever it exists DNA is more than just personal data. However, the reason why I it's because in sociology with your entire family tree. Other sources of DNA cataloging. The feds include records at hospitals blood test labs, your personal doctor's office tests of all the other types of data collected financial travel. Emails phone calls all other sources of DNA cataloging. The feds include records at hospitals blood test labs, your personal doctor's office tests of all the other types of data collected financial travel. Emails phone calls. All that DNA is the most revealing and the most desirable. Now, we know that the FBI maintains a national genetic database was samples from convicts and arrestees. But. When you look at private genetic databases. And we look at going beyond the genetic databases, you'll find that Twenty-three envy ancestry DNA, they sometimes surrendered DNA defined killers as well. Both ancestry dot com and twenty three and me stipulate in their privacy policies. They will turn information over to law enforcement if served with a court order. Twenty-three me says it's received a couple of requests for both state enforcement FBI. But that's you know. They they have been successful in resisting them, but not so sure not so true because we heard about a killer that was found guilty or because they they used this type of system in order to in order to uncover killer. Now people say, well, that's good. Well, no, not really because they have to go through family. They have to go through bloodlines after go through everything, and they may even require family members to get blood tests in order for them to convict somebody or at least to match their DNA to a crime scene, and then puts the family through more stress and more trouble. Gene in Michigan, hygiene, you're on ground zero. I'm really happy listened to your show. I'm like seventy plus years old, and I've always been really interested in having a DNA test that for listening to you. A couple of months ago where you talked about this.
