A little more about the information given some some details on apple's alleged upcoming mixed reality headset sources have more details including a rendering this time of what they say is apple's vr headset. A lot of the details are similar to what we heard from mark gurman of bloomberg earlier last month It's expected to use fabric. Mesh run on an apple design chip cost a lot. Although we've got a number as much as three thousand dollars the headset may have more than a dozen cameras for hand. Tracking lied are sensors for room. Mapping and a are affects dual eight k displays and i tracking to save battery life. The information sources says apple would use aided rendering. that's when you only render in full resolution. What your eyes are looking at everything. In the periphery can be a little lower sources. Say apple has not finalized input control but the options. They're considering are a combination of hand tracking i tracking a dial on the headset or something. They call a thimble like accessory. Oh boy well the thing that jumped out to me. I because we have talked about this before. This rumor has been swirling. I mean really for years but it seems to be more of a reality than ever. Is that three thousand dollar price points now again. It's a rumor and yes. Apple tends to make things that are similar to other products that are more expensive and then says but it's apple so you know we can do that sort of thing. Three thousand dollars. Oh my goodness Compare that to oculus to for three hundred dollars. That's a crazy price point. I don't know how the company could get away with such a thing.

We have more from news nations, Glenn Marshall this week there was hope that Americans could see $2000 in relief funding coming from the government, the president said. It's what he wanted, but he signed the bill without changes being made issuing $900 billion in pandemic relief. Some Americans can expect to see $600 coming their way if they make less than $75,000 a year and $1200 for couples making less than 150,000 year. Another $600 payment will be made for every dependent child like the first round of payments from the spring. The bill also provides a $300 payment for unemployment benefits for up to 11 weeks through mid March.

"Takes. Hot button issues and tweets. But saving lives in a pandemic takes logistics, most recently getting a vaccine where it's needed. So how's that going? NPR's science reporter Ping Guang is here, along with Martha Beeping Girded member station W bur in Boston. Good morning to both of you. Good morning. Morning. Okay. Martha will start with you in the shrine of Medicine is the vaccine starting to reach Boston? Well, the shrine got shut out, Steve. No, I'm kidding a little bit. Here's the deal in Massachusetts, Five of the 75 hospitals that expect to start visor vaccinations this week received the shipment yesterday. The explanation seems to be shipping glitches and delays during a crazy time. So while there was some grumbling, all of the large hospitals are expecting vaccine shipments today and the smaller ones tomorrow. So in the end, hospital leaders say, what difference does one day really make? Yeah. Hopefully it is only one day now. Once the vaccine has arrived, how's the rollout work? Well, we have already started to vaccinate a few people out of a hospital north of Boston. They started yesterday with a 96 year old World War two veteran named Margaret Claessens. Few hospitals will have media events today, vaccinating hospital leaders or range of employees, especially staff of color. You just heard on the show a little bit about why that's important. It's to build more trusting the vaccines. Then tomorrow and Thursday, we'll start to see the clinics with a couple of 100, nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists and members of the cleaning staff coming in and out every day. Okay, so that's one location across the country. This is happening everywhere. Or as many places as possible. And Ping as you monitor operation Warp speed. How do the next few days and weeks look Yeah, well, Boston's not alone here. You know, around 140 Your 150 sites got there. First Vaccines yesterday and more than 400 are expected to get them today. Here's Health Secretary Alex. These are speaking in Washington, D C yesterday by Wednesday. Vaccine will be delivered everywhere from sites here in Washington to the shores of Guam to the northeastern corner of main. All in all, around three million vaccines are going out this week, and government officials were saying this is just the beginning. You know, every week, states will be getting more vaccine shipments. And most of those first doses we've seen so far have gone to healthcare workers. But next week, some states we're gonna start immunizing nursing home residents as well. Or they're expected to you through a federal partnership with CVS and Walgreens. Teams from these pharmacies will be visiting nursing homes to give shots to both residents and the staff. Martha Ping is just there talking about who gets this first. Is there any debate about who is getting the vaccine first? There's been some controversy in Massachusetts, Steve about including prisoners in Phase one, along with people who live in other group settings, like Homeless shelters in Massachusetts, prisoners will follow hospital staff who care directly for covert patients. Nursing home residents and staff and they'll follow first responders, but prisoners would come before home health care workers at all the hospital and clinic employees who do not care directly for covert patients. Told this was a unanimous recommendation from the States Vaccine advisory group Dr Paul Bidding. Gir, who chairs that group, spoke on a webinar last night. He said the recommendation was based on the large number of outbreaks in prisons and other group residential settings. Group elected to consider all congregate Cara settings with high priority because of the risk of spreading transmission so quickly to so many people, both affecting staff and, of course patients residents themselves. Massachusetts is one of six states that include vaccinating everyone in prisons and jails in Phase one. And another seven plan to vaccinate in clinics in prisons. But just for staff, not inmates, That's all. According to the prison policy Initiative. Ping I can imagine someone saying, Hey, that's unfair. But what is the public health reasoning behind vaccinating prisoners? Well, sure. I mean, prisoners and other people who are jailed or who live in correctional facilities are a group that are at a particularly high risk recovered because of their living situations. You know, they live in cramped quarters with poor ventilation. They can't physically distance and You know, Staff and prisoners moved between facilities So once it's introduced, it spreads really quickly can you know? And at this point more than one in 10 incarcerated people the U. S of caught the coronavirus. More than 1500 have died and a lot of staff have been infected as well. States like California, Texas, Florida, you know, states with large incarcerated populations have had the most cases and the most deaths so It is up to the states who they decide to prioritize for a vaccine. And there are a lot of other groups that could also be next in line, you know essential workers, people who work in grocery stores or die Busses, teachers, farm workers. And of course, you know people with underlying health conditions. So these are all open questions in the CDC is planning on coming out with more guidance and priority groups in the coming weeks, and you can understand the logic. You have a super spreader event in prison that can very quickly spread throughout the community because you have guards and other staff that go back and forth. And that seems to be the same logic of some of these other groups that you mentioned like teachers or in contact with lots of Students or people in a grocery store in contact with all kinds of shoppers, so they're making these choices now because there is a limited supply. When does the supply get to the point where it's not so limited? Absolutely well. One big decision that's coming this week could really increase the supply of vaccines. The Food and Drug Administration is considering a second vaccine made by the drug company Madonna for authorization this week. If that one gets authorized, the government says they have six million doses of that ready to ship out. And in fact, that's actually something that the federal government is banking on. In their estimates. They say that 20 million people could get there. First Vaccine shot this month if they pull what they have for both the visor and murder, no vaccines. And they say 30 million more people could get shots in January. So in terms of when there's going to be enough vaccine for everyone to get one, they're estimating the end of the second quarter next year. So if all goes right, maybe around June, but tens of millions in the next couple of months Ping Thanks so much. Thank you for having me That's NPR's science reporter Ping Wong, along with Martha Beeping Garnet member station Deputy bur in Boston. Thanks so much. Thank you..

S death toll exceeded 300,000 people. At the Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Dr Michelle Chester, who administered the hospital's first shot, said help is finally on the way. Let's take advantage of this glimmer of hope, which is the vaccine. So we can move forward as a community as a nation and is a world we've got NPR Health reporter Ping Guang with us. Good Morning, Ping. Good morning. What can we expect for the rest of the week on the vaccine front? So those health care workers that we saw getting vaccinated yesterday kicked it off more than 400 sites around the country will be getting their first shipment today. Here's Health Secretary Alex aides are speaking in Washington D. C by Wednesday. Accident will be delivered everywhere from sites here in Washington to the shores of Guam to the northeastern corner of main All in all around three million doses of the fives of accident going out this week, and all states are really glad to be receiving these vaccines. There's a lot we need to figure out to get those vaccines into millions of people's of arms quickly. Remember, it was just authorized on Friday, so they need to train a lot of people on had a thought them and mix them and give them out. How do you assess people for potential contraindications and Make sure people come back at the right time for that second shot right? So and of course, all these first shipments there limited there's not enough to even cover all the health workers, right? When can we expect more supply? Well, General guess paranoia, the logistics lead for Operation Works. Speed says that every week from now on, states will be getting more vaccines. It is not a one and done delivery. It is a consistent flow of ordering preparation and delivery. It rolls out as vaccines were available, and more and more people get access to the vaccine every day. Harnesses. They're looking. They're providing. Look ahead, forecasted. States can plan ahead six weeks in the future, and now we've seen most of those first dose is going to health care workers so far, But next week, some states are expected to start immunizing nursing home residents as well through federal partnership with CVS and Walgreens teams from these pharmacies. They're gonna be visiting nursing homes to give shots to both residents and to staff. And as for he goes next, it's really up to the states who they prioritize. It could be people like essential workers or could be built people with underlying health conditions. The CDC is planning on coming up with more guidance on that one priority groups in the coming weeks. So we're talking about the Fizer vaccine that was produced in tandem with a German company, but we could be getting news of another vaccine this week, right? Yeah, Absolutely. So that's a big decision coming this week that could really increase the supply of vaccines on Thursday. The Food and Drug Administration is considering a vaccine from the drug company Madonna for emergency use authorization. Was the same process of the visor vaccine went through last week, and the maternal vaccines actually similar to the fires of vaccine and how it works, and also comparable and safety and efficacy. So if that one gets authorized, the government says they have six million doses of that ready to ship out. All right. NPR health reporter Ping Hong on the latest on.

A recent paper by researchers at UC Santa Barbara has found temperature and humidity could be key factors and how covert 19 is transmitted hazmat. Gillom has details on how the changing seasons might impact the way we fight the virus. The paper by scientists at UCSB and Stanford, which appears in the journal Nana, Letters, shows the transmissibility of the virus can very greatly depending on the temperature and humidity. As we've learned the primary way the virus spreads through respiratory droplets, the researchers found the droplets which are emitted when we talk and breathe, Khun Travel beyond the 6 FT, recommended for social distancing. In cool and humid environments that can travel almost 20 ft before falling to the ground. At the opposite end of the spectrum in hot and dry conditions, the scientists found droplets evaporate. However, viral fragments can hang in the air for hours and mingle with other particles. The researchers hypothesized that in summer airborne transmission could be higher while in winter contact with respiratory droplets could pose the larger threat.

"That crackdown comes in the form of cutting off Medicare funding to hospitals that don't comply. And draft documents obtained by NPR show that the government is now taking steps to begin those cuts. As NPR reporters Ping Guang and Selina Simmons Duffin have been reporting it's a change that could affect many hospitals. King joins us now to discuss Welcome to be here. Good to have you tell us what's in these documents you've gotten hold off. So we've obtained gas of guidance and letters that the government plans to send out to hospitals to speak. The letters remind hospitals to report daily information about covert 19 cases to the federal government. This is information about how many covert patients they have how many Ben leaders are available, and The federal government has been asking than demanding and now threatening to get this information from hospitals. The weight has Corona virus Task Force says they need the stated to understand what's happening, and the Department of Health and Human Services is trying to collect it. And paying in general. It seems like information sharing would be a good thing all around why our hospital's having to be prodded to comply? Yes, Some of this information is important for health authorities at all levels to understand things like which hospitals are filling up or running low on drugs for treating cove it, But hospitals are unhappy with the amount of information HHS is asking for and how they're asking for it. Early in the pandemic. Hospitals were reporting this information to the CDC using a system many had been using for years. But in July HHS, which oversees CDC shut down the city, see option for reporting and that created a lot of pushback. Politicians and public health experts were raising concerns that that was sidelining CDC in a pandemic. And for hospitals. The move also created a lot of headaches. They had to learn how to use a new system. They had to answer a lot more questions. We talked to Cary Crawl from the Texas Hospital Association. And she says, someone now has to go all over the hospital every day. To get that data. We're talking about bedside nursing type statistics in terms of covered patients versus adult persons, child and then you're talking about pharmaceuticals. So that's going to come from a pharmacy. And now hospitals are being threatened with the loss of Medicare funding if they miss a few days of reporting..
Coronavirus: Airborne transmission cannot be ruled out, WHO says

More than 200 scientists published a letter to the W. H O on Monday. They called for them to pay serious attention to the idea that the Corona virus might be spreading through the air further than the 3 to 6 feet recommended for social distancing. W. H O officials say they've already been considering the evidence for months. Doctor Benedetta Allah Grant C W. H O Expert on Infection Control and Prevention says there are some signs of the virus Khun spread through room, but that seems to take certain conditions. The possibility off airborne transmission in crowded closed the poorly ventilated setting, so cannot be ruled out. W H. O says they're currently summarizing the research on all forms of transmission. And plan to issue a brief in the coming days.

She's got a new book on robots in ancient literature in lower myth, as well. So I just she she she's I think I don't know if that was original to her. But talking about the Griffin's. And tying that into sir top bones. If fossils that sort of thing is nice. Yeah. It's really interesting stuff. So I know there's been some pushback from some paleontologists, but it, it certainly to me is a layman. It sounds very plausible. And, and the hero veneration of fossil bones seems absolutely clause -able in explanatory for a lot of these giants in Greek myths for examples is really interesting stuff. So she owes us an interview I'm shaking my Fischetti. Speaking that, that Eric, we've. Some supposed dragon Barnes, which are found in Chinese markets are actually fossil's. Have you ever run into that little personally? No. But I've heard about it. Yeah. There's a sense that, you know, some of. I mean, there's a direct relationship between the, the linguistic designation for dinosaur in Chinese and the concept of dragon. There's a pretty strong link plausibly that the idea was people were finding these giant bones and saying, hey, this must have been dragon so loan Chinese. So there's a there's a pretty serious link there. I mean they actually have been the. Fossilized dinosaur bones have in pieces been found in sort of black market medicine in China sort of powdered bone like powder deer antler type thing, right? To bring vitality power. So, yeah, I to me, those relationships are pretty clear that, you know, the idea of fossilized dinosaur bones being a link to the imagination of dragons. Sure. Can I say something about imagination here, though? If it's that. There's a there's a sentence of the beginning of Johnny guang's book that is much as I seriously dearly, love judgy Guang, the first sentence of his book, and I know it because I've taught this book and I fixated on the sentence. The first sentence he writes, his dragons, do not actually exist. None ever did exist. And. My love for cheap long aside. I don't agree in. It's not that I think that dragons, as we might imagine them were physical creatures around our, our fiscal creatures around for that. I am agnostic. I don't know. Maybe there are maybe there aren't. But for me, what matters is that the idea that the what is imaginary is into real is problematic. I think in a lot of worldviews all over all over the planet. The concept of what is real. And what is legendary in what is myth, a logical. What is imagined? What is fantasy? What is fantastic are weird concepts that we might. As English speaking, colonial euro, American anthropology types implant upon other people's in terms of framing categories of understanding upon them. Religion itself is a product of colonial imaginary to a large degree as a concept. What it is that many, many, many, many, many peoples of the world do in terms of creating their realities and dreaming, their worlds and storytelling into existence their fears, those are real, again, they're not metaphors. So. Dragon speeches dragons. So to say the dragons, are imaginary is to discount the, that's what it dragon is in that anguish in. So I take issue with that concept of dragons have never existed, or that local truth claims are not as possibly true in that constructed worldview modality than any truth claim..
The pride of the PLA
"That's not every day you get to go on a Chinese warship, but for China. Correspondent Bill Birtles the rare opportunity came up during a naval fleet. Review off the port city of ching Tao, and, despite terrible, weather, and heavy handed media management. He says it was a day out like no other. Several kilometers out to sea of China's east coast, watching the pride of the Palay nineties flight go by, at close range from my vantage point on a training ship. Chidi Guang, China's first aircraft carrier. The Liaoning is just one hundred meters away, and yet I can barely see it. It's almost completely lost in the heavy fog and constant rain. The reason I was on a Chinese navy, ship in the middle of a massive international fleet review was because of diplomacy. This actually wasn't my first time on a Chinese warship my very first assignment for the IB see and China was to cover joint drills between the astride Sean's and Chinese off the coast of Guangdong province back ban. I managed to get on a Chinese ship in the port, but this time was different. We were. Being taken out to witness more than thirty Chinese submarines destroyers and the carrier go by president Xi Jinping was on Jason ship observing the review that they were also seventeen foreign ships, including HMO Melvin, which is why we were invited. Astrid was in good company. The Japanese South Koreans Vietnamese and Indians were among the nations that sent ships like Astrid area, all of them had their differences with China yet, this was a goodwill parade. The city of ching, Dow was in lockdown for the event, I asked one tourist retiree if he was excited about watching the naval parade from the shore, he told me he was disappointed that police had blocked all the roads to ching Dow's Haba. So we couldn't walk down and see all the ships himself. He wasn't happy about it. But as I was. Talking to him a couple came over and corrected him sighing the heavy handed security misses a normal and other countries do the same. They were Cain to assure me. It wasn't security. Overkill, Justin necessary safety measure. Of course. If the strategy indefens- falls gathered more than fifty ships in sight. Sydney Haba for a parade and then blocked all the access to the harvest side. I suspect people would not be too happy, but this is China and extreme security is the norm here. So then it was time for what when Cam for the fleet review with my cameraman Steve Young. We convened at the hotel with other invited journalists and began the first of many security checks. All our equipment was meticulously sqauad. We were. Then boss to the port where we went through to lots of airports styles security to get onto the ship. It took ages. But once on board, we will take into a lodge, dining room where we were served a box lunch vacuum packed bheith assaulted Koenig, some cake, and fruit. And then now ship again. Chugging out to see all this was fairly smooth, but there was one very obvious problem. We've come to ching now to get amazing shots of dozens of warships lined up fighter jets in formation flying above us. The might of China's rapidly growing navy on full display and yet the weather was atrocious. Thick fog and constant rain meant we could barely see more than one hundred meters in front of us when it was time for the parade to begin. We couldn't see more than one ship at a time Justice, the Ryan new intensified further, the announcing declared the Liaoning aircraft carrier was going by this was the mine event after all, and yet everyone on day was staring into the grave wondering where the heck it was. West for us is the moment when the astride Ian ships, sail by Steve long couldn't see HMAS Melvin even with the maximum zoom on his camera, you couldn't take a worse style for Nival fleet review and with it over, we scrambled to a pace to camera on dick. This is awesome flexing a celebration. I tonight Melvin from Friday or is here. I thought my summarize something senior Chinese official had said at a function, the night before that the parade, according to China wasn't about muscle flexing. And yet, one of my military minders listening in took umbrage at that as the ship chopped back to poor. He warned us that we must delete that he's the camera or risk access to the navy in future. Such threads and not uncommon in China. But it seemed to me it was a bit light to be threatening us given that all the filming was done in the story pretty much finished the pace the cameras stayed in our report as Dido all ou- shots of the warships lost in the fog. Visually stunning naval parade. It wasn't but a Diana's, see with China's navy is not something you forget easily.
