He would have to go through a bunch of office of government ethics steps, disclosures about his stock holdings, investment of anything that might pose a conflict of interest, or he might have to recuse himself from certain decisions. What's more, all of this would be public. That didn't quite happen here because he was brought on as a contractor and hired through a private firm working with the government, and that just that detail in and of itself is being a contractor that has been controversial. That's right. Senator Elizabeth Warren is among several Democratic legislators to question whether slow we should have been hired as a federal employee. Instead given his key position, he said, he doesn't make decisions, but he has a lot of influence. In a statement, he said he took on this role out of a commitment to public health and to helping control this deadly pandemic. He also affirmed his commitment to the highest ethical standards. Details of Slattery's contract have emerged slowly, but the full contract wasn't widely available. Even though folks have been asking for it for months. It did just provided. It's me last night. So what's in it? What can we learn from him? Well, even though it's been well reported that slowly, is only being paid a dollar for his work. 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. The contract repeat some of what's already come out and news reports and from congressional oversight but lays it out in black and white. It includes slouches board memberships, including his role on Vaccine front runner of Modern is bored, He stepped down. It also includes stockholdings slow he's held on to his GlaxoSmithKline stock, but agreed to donate profits during his time in operation Warp speed above a certain threshold. We also learned that the scope of this work, as described in the contract is really brief. Which I'm told by a lawyer who works on government contracting isn't that abnormal? But public Citizen's Craig Holman says it may be too vague. You know the contract itself. Doesn't actually explain what it is he's doing on DH, so that provides provides a lot of wiggle room for months of slowing. He says slowly, shouldn't be a contractor because he holds such a key role in Operation Warp speed. What to his bosses in the Trump administration. What does HHS say about HHS says Lowey's expertise is invaluable to operation warp speed, but the actual investments are decided by a board of directors. That board includes the secretaries of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense.

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.

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.

That's according to new records released by a House subcommittee, and he presents a potential conflict of interest. NPR. Sidney Lumpkin has details. 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.

"Happy to listen to your show. I'm like seventy years old, and I've always been really interested in having a DNA cast. For listening to you. A couple of months ago where you talked about this. I'm I'm happy to get this information. We talked about it before. I was just saying, hey, you know, GlaxoSmithKline, what do you think of this? 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.

"Nhs. So said to hear you tell it everybody was crazy about herpes. They love the stuff. And then around the seventies started to take time. I didn't everybody was crazy about it. It just wasn't. It was kind of one of those things like a lot of people got cold sores and people a lot of people are probably getting swords on their genitals. And they just weren't. I mean, whatever we weren't talking about making a federal case at it. Right. People weren't seeking a lot of treatment for it is the truth. In the seventies. Though. A few different things happen that changed that. I the first big deal drug to treat herpes was released. The first one that didn't have a lot of horrible side effects and was targeted at herpes at HSA. It was released by Burroughs Wellcome company, which I think is now GlaxoSmithKline a believe Zoe over access or a cycle veer as you probably have heard it now racks, I'm here to carry your heart breaks that's earth pace. I don't think they don't think the commercials like that. But I wish it was. It was a it would have been good Marshall. But it was originally the idea because we had antibiotics right? Like, this is like by this time in history, we already have penicillin and all of the antibody that came there after well, quite a few of them by this point. And we knew we could treat and cure bacterial infections, the next big landmark. Mark was can we treat and cure viral infections the way, we do 'Bacterial viruses are harder, which is why as you know? We don't have a lot of antivirals. Right. I mean think about it when you come in. And we say you got a virus? We don't give you anything for it. Because we don't have anything that'll help with that. And most of the time they're self limited. And it's not a big deal. Anyway. Well, there are as I mentioned life threatening manifestations of the herpes virus in certain patients under certain conditions. And so we did need drugs to treat that. But the idea as they introduced a psych Lear among their marketing team was that that's not enough because those life threatening infections are not very common. And while that certainly is a good use for our drug. We want to sell it to more people. We've put in all this time and effort and research and development to make this drug and we wanna make a ton of money off of it. But most people just don't care enough about herpes to bother to treat it and certainly not to pay for a brand new antiviral medication. Right. And this is supported by the fact that as late as nineteen seventy five. There was a study done psychological morbidity a clinic for sexually transmitted disease. So this is I mentioned earlier that from a purely physical like cellular destruction standpoint, most herpes not that big a deal, but from a psychological standpoint now, we would say, it's a it's a huge deal for a lot of patients. Well, as of nineteen seventy five when they did a study on the more the specific psychological effects of getting an STI they don't even mention herpes. So it's like nobody nobody cared. They didn't it wasn't even included in the study because the idea that people. Would be suffering a psychological man, some some sort of illness from a herpes infection was just unheard of. Nobody would care. Why would we? So they needed a strategy strategy. How do we get people to care about herpes? They launched a disease awareness campaign. Your oh, no this coming. They were emphasizing the importance of treating genital herpes specifically. So they they didn't focus on cold sores because I mean for one you can see that people have them. So it was hard to stigmatize cold sores. Right. Even if a lot of people have genital herpes, you're not seeing that on the street on to make that a secret. Shame. Yes..

"This one. There is a report. From a well known and respected diabetes. Doctor. That Glaxo Smith Kline. Selling the diabetes, drug Avandia, A V A N D. I A. The people in congress having hearings on what drugmakers doing what the cost of drugs is you've heard a lot of that stuff. So there's a bit of testimony that caught my attention because the doctor says he was threatened by three drug company executives threatened. He was threatened with a suit when he first raised questions about the safety of the drug from Glaxo SMithKline at testimony, coupled with the recent medical journal analysis, highlighting the heart attack risks associated with this drug prompted some lawmakers to rebuke the food and Drug administration for failing to protect consumers. So anyway, they'd been a lot of warnings from outside experts about this drug. A lot of people millions in fact have been on Avandia to control their blood sugar, and despite the risks involved the FDA never required to manufacturer to conduct a thorough post market study of its heart risks. So in other words, it's good for keeping your blood sugar car down, but it's likely to cause a heart attack and this doctor who figured that out was threatened by GlaxoSmithKline threatened with a suit to shut them up. I do like that boys and girls think about that in terms of what kind of medical construct there is in our country. This is good day health. Forget about our good day health show podcasts.

Genetic testing is popular and potentially has lots of benefits, but who owns the results from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying. The digital economy I'm Ali, would. DNA and genetic testing are big business, but there are real questions about privacy and about what happens to your genetic information after you get tested recently, the DNA testing company. Twenty-three in me, partnered with pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline to develop personalized drugs and research treatment for diseases like lupus and Parkinson's. Jen king is director of consumer privacy at the center for internet and society at Stanford law school. Her research finds that surprisingly, most people who take DNA tests, don't think the data is all that personal. Most of them felt that their genetic data while it was personal at the same time, it didn't reveal who they really were versus one of the things in my study I looked at was search queries. So when people type a search term into Google, for example, did they consider that more personal than genetic data? In some cases they did because it really revealed something more about what. Made them tick what they were concerned about, what they thought about what they care about. Whereas genetic did. It doesn't tell you anything about that, but then you get to, you know, the news that twenty three and me is partnering with a pharmaceutical company to develop drugs based on DNA data that they got from twenty three and me. Do you think that changes the calculation for people? I think it can because one of the things I discovered is while people were motivated by the idea that their data could be doing good. That often wasn't very critical. People hadn't spent time to really dig into what that meant. And so while there's probably an assumption that, well, you know, great. I'm going to help make a drug that could help a disease. I know nothing about and maybe I'll benefit because I have that disease. No one, at least of the people I talked to really sat down thought about, well, wait a second. The company isn't obligated to give that drug away for free. They can charge as much as they want for it. So there was the sense of helping the public, but it wasn't very critical. Really wasn't carefully thought through just exactly how that might happen. It was more of a check the box going, hey, I can do something good. This is a little Sifi I know as we are also exploring gene editing. Is there an argument that we should start to consider patenting gene profiles? You know, should we started having like an ownership conversation about our most basic identity? That's really interesting question. If you look at the customer agreements of these different online genetic testing companies, it's kind of a big open question as to who owns your data and the agreements today, I think are pretty clear that at least with twenty three and me that once they do something with that data, in this case partner with a pharmaceutical company and develop a drug on its basis, you sign an agreement saying you have no rights to it, or you have no property interest in the outcome of its. You can't go to them later and say, hey, you need to compensate me for this blockbuster drug that you developed using my data. That's Jen king of Stanford center for internet and society. Another fun tidbit. New research in the journal science says, you could be identified even if you haven't taken a genetic test. Just by tracing the DNA of distant relatives back to you using social media and other online data about sixty percent of Americans of European descent could be tracked down that way. And now for some related links, even though the future of the international space station is currently sort of in doubt after a Soyuz rocket malfunctioned last week in two astronauts barely survived. NASA is trying to figure out when it can send astronauts to the ISS again and whether the ones who are already there, we'll have to abandon the space station completely for awhile because the Russian rockets are currently the only way to get humans to and from the ISS and they are grounded because of the accident, Jeff Bezos, aerospace company, blue origin, put up a video today, promising to send millions of people to space eventually. Now is the time to open the promise of space all in lay the way for generations to come. When our descendants look to the stars, perhaps more rocky moon or calling his floating and open space. They'll remember this time. And love me. I'm not trying to be down on big ambitions, but we do seem to be doing a lot of fast forwarding to the future. And I'm kind of wondering what is the plan for the now. Tell you one other thing I'm intrigued by today? A new little phone called the palm? Yes. Nostalgia, they bought the rights to the old name. It's meant to be an accessory phone, so you're big everyday, Android smartphone. So you have like a little add on gadget? The does simple stuff like texting and calls and music and doesn't distract you with the whole smartphones situation. Plus it fits in your pocket. Kind of like apple watch, accept a phone that goes with your other phone, and I know you wanna laugh. But like the bird said, when they wrote about it, the idea kind of worms its way into your head.

"glaxosmithkline" Discussed on Slate Money
"Emily. Have you taken. Gene test from twenty three in meal. Any of those companies? I really haven't. I am. I don't want to know. But his question apparently according to twenty three and me, eighty percents of the people who have had that genes tested have like often take some kind of a box which allows that personal genetic information to be shed with pharmaceutical giants. Like Lexa SMithKline. I really wonder how active that opting in is, but we are about to find out because Anna GlaxoSmithKline has made a what is it? Three hundred million? Three hundred million dollar investment in twenty three and me. So that four, I think about four years. They're going to have access to twenty three in me's DNA data that they will be able to use to create new drugs. And specifically they have a drug which they have already developed full Parkinson's, which only works. On people with a certain gene mutation. And so they like, great, we have this drug, we want to use it on people who have this gene mutation with questions. How'd you find the people who have that gene mutation onset? You go along to twenty three and me and say, can you just give us the Email address of everyone with gene mutation? And then we can just Email them and say, do you want Parkinson's drug? It's just the u. you have exactly the right gene mutation. And on the one hand, this is creepy. Fuck. On the other hand, you can see how actually quite useful. I actually think this is a fantastic thing. I think that if you're looking and you're saying, okay, well, we have the ability to more quickly and more inexpensively create drugs that can markedly improve people's lives. And on the other side, there are privacy concerns. I think the former is much more important. What I thought was interesting also was that people pay to us twenty three and me, and then they give them in. Addition to money, the right to look at all their genetic information than twenty three and me use that to make a multimillion dollar deal with a big pharmaceutical company. So you're were essentially letting ourselves not me because I don't do twenty three me, but we're essentially letting ourselves be these pigs for free. Monetize Jesse for the privilege of being monetize. Wow, doesn't seem that doesn't ring fair to me. It seems exploitative I think that you're saying, I mean, even beings with they are given and they have a product and as there's an opt in, it's not opt out. It's an opt in. And if you when eighty percent of people, ten, you kind of wonder how how often is like Uber saying? I agreed to arbitration when I downloaded Uber, it's like, no, I just wanted to get a car really fast known reads any of this stuff. I who knows. We don't know Felix said, we don't know how much work people are doing on the optin like you would never say to someone like when companies test drugs, they do trials, they, they pay people, you pay people. This is, I think this is a really important point. Is that like some like tick the books that you do when you buy test shouldn't be. You shouldn't be able to give a super Val. Table day through in that way. Like I don't think people are realizing how valuable that data is. And if Twenty-three me turned around and said, we're going to sell this full, you know, three hundred bucks to GlaxoSmithKline and we're gonna keep the three hundred bucks feel south and you're not gonna get any of it. People be like, no, actually this is my network information. If my genetic information, it's going to be self three hundred bucks. I want the three hundred bucks. So I agree with you that I think in health data in in general, I think as we move forward, there's going to be more questions about people owning their own data and people being able to make money off of their data. And I agree with that, and I think that that shouldn't be able to give it up as easily as people seem to be able to give it up. I also think that people are adults and I think that if if you agree to do something I there's a little part of that feels like, why are we willing to hold people accountable? You agree to do something..
23andMe Is Sharing Genetic Data with Drug Giant
"The pharmaceutical company is investing three hundred million dollars US in twenty three and me in an effort to develop new drugs. MARCY Arnab sqi has concerns about collaborations. Like this one. She's the executive director of the center for genetics and society. We reached her in Berkeley, California, MS darn asking what is twenty three and me getting out of this deal with GlaxoSmithKline, twenty three and me getting a very large fusion of money, three hundred million dollars and what is GS que get out of it and she cake. It's access to a Hugh. Huge trove of information to the DNA sequences of twenty three's customers and also to other lifestyle information that customers have shared with the company. Why would they want the lifestyle information? Well, they want to look at all sorts of correlations between DNA and health information, environmental information. That's what makes it valuable. What concerns do you have about a deal like this? Well, you know, I think that the main one for me, there's a number, but the main one for me is that this is not what people expected when they sent in their spit kits to twenty three and me, and you only need to look at the Twitter feed to see how surprised and upset. A lot of people are to know that the company that they thought was selling them spit kits in fact, is selling their information to a big drug company that's going to profit and so is twenty three me off any discoveries that. Are made, but there was a press release from the of twenty three in me that assured people that customers can choose whether they want to participate in this type of research, they can opt in or opt out at any time he'd said, so isn't it up to the people who use the service to read the fine print and find out how the information's being used as a legal matter? Of course it is. And yes, twenty three and me did put all that information in the agreement that they sent to their customers. But as a practical matter, as we've learned from people's agreements with the Facebook terms, we don't really read those very carefully and we don't really think through what all the ramifications and implications are. So I think the publicity around this deal is really going to help people realize that you know, they need to think about Twenty-three in me, not as this hip cool startup, but as a part of big pharma will let me play devil's advocate, what what's wrong with doing this? Why? Why shouldn't they be able to get a look at all of this data in the name of trying to make. Medicine's what's at risk for these customers? Well, sure. That's the right question. And of course, we all want drugs to treat people who are sick. But when you think about our history with big pharma, we know that sometimes those drugs aren't safe. Sometimes they're not affective, and especially lately too many of them have been priced at obscene levels that makes them on affordable and inaccessible to a lot of people. So in your mind, it's it's, it's not it's it's a question of whether you feel good about helping big pharma. Yeah, and and you know, when you listen to the rhetoric of the marketing rhetoric and the website, say of twenty in me, you know, they talk about developing life-saving drugs and and yes, that's what we want, but they did not really make it clear in their marketing and self presentation that their business model really doesn't have to do with selling spit kits to regular people. It has to do with making money off the information. Nation that their customers are paying them to to provide and then using that data to generate profit for themselves. Other issues that arise here, I was listening to the two companies, chief scientific officers being interviewed, and one of them was talking about leveraging the information of these patients. Shouldn't they be getting recommence if in fact it is bare information that is being used to create drugs that may become profitable will some people have suggested that they should get rebates. But you know if the if GSA k. or twenty three and me sends a few people, the ninety nine dollar fee. That might be one way to address something, but maybe there has to be some public interest agreements about pricing so that any drugs that are developed are widely available, I guess in general, you know, we have as a society..

"To kind of break itself up this is the whole issue of carl icahn backing newell and starboard value the firm you know that that's an activist trying to come in and take over another share that i was looking at why is glaxosmithkline shares up about five and a half percent on news that they are bidding thirteen billion dollars to buy a part of a joint venture they had with novartis basically they this would be the consumer type products like painkillers and a flu vaccine that they would be taking over and interestingly at least to me is that both the shares of glaxosmithkline as well as novartis are up on this news row and maybe a sigh of relief to some extent in glaxo's case because you have to bear in mind that the company was among the potential bidders for pfizer consumer health newton and then dropped out so the idea that they're focusing on their current business arguably going over well we're supporting the american depositary receipts glaxo up three point three percent at the moment and the eight ers of novartis based in switzerland up six tenths of a percent i would be remiss in letting you go without broad digging out a little bit and can we really give any narrative to yesterday's rally it was the best one day rise in us equity indices since august two thousand fifteen is this just like another demonstration that volatility exists this is completely normal and you know don't make too much of it sounds pretty much like you hit the nail on the head and you have to put yesterday in the context of last thursday and friday me was all about the concern that the us was going into a trade war that it would be back and forth with china and a whole lot of other countries can you get people took the weekend and realize what's going on here is just sort of an opening salvo and things will change over time and what eventually happens may not be nearly as dire as some people had anticipated a really interesting side note i was speaking with one wall street analyst yesterday who noted that a lot of companies have pledged to buy back their shares and basically they have told the buyback desks at bay wall street firms when our shares dropped to this level go by so it could be a question also of that.
