The consequence in China may be death. The political stakes were made stark in Shanghai on Saturday evening when started out as a visual escalated into a street protest, according to The New York Times. For most of the time, since COVID spread from Wuhan nearly three months ago, many Chinese have accepted tough controls including sweeping restrictions limiting travel to the country as a price for avoiding the widespread illness and death of the United States and other countries suffered.

"Climax with our top stories good morning salvia. London will go as a result of a recession and the government plan to raise taxes and cut spending. That's the assessment of the new lord mayor of London, who has been speaking to us here on Bloomberg radio. The lord mayor Nicholas Lyons also told us that the UK has shot itself in the foot by opting for Brexit, but that we haven't yet taken advantage of the freedoms that it offers. Saudi Arabia has denied a report that it's discussing in oil production increase for the OPEC plus meeting in early December. The Wall Street Journal said the group was considering raising output by as much as 500,000 barrels a day. The Saudis say the current production cut of 2 million barrels per day will continue until the end of 2023. COVID restrictions are now affecting a 5th of China's economy, as infections continue to rise undermining Beijing school for more targeted COVID zero measures. More than 27,000 new cases were reported on Monday, near a record with a southern manufacturing hub of Guangzhou, the current epicenter. Many local authorities have been expanding testing and shutting schools and offices despite recent directives to ease measures. Global news 24 hours a day on nan and Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and Natalie see more than 120 countries. I'm Sylvia clama key. This is Bloomberg. So we have thanks very much for our top stories. While markets remaining fragile today's investors weigh the impact of COVID infections in China and that commentary from fed speaker is giving investors more to chew on as well. Mary Daly from the San Francisco fed saying that officials need to be mindful of the time lag for policy transmission and Cleveland fed president Loretta master says she's opening to slowing the tempo of race hikes or joining us now for more as Bloomberg's markets live at a mark cranfield, mark great to have you with us. So fed officials broadly speaking in support of the inflation fight, but how much can we read into what they're telling us? Yeah, I think that's something else they're getting closer to their target. So they're going to be prepared to shift from 75 probably to something like 50 basis points in the December meeting. If they come out with a new dot plot which is somewhere around the 5% maybe 5 and a quarter percent as a target for next year, that means they probably only need to do one more rate hike after that or maybe two small rate hikes. But anyway, there's certainly a lot closer than they were at the beginning of the year, obviously. And they're trying to prepare the market that once they get to that plateau than the rates are going to be held there for a while to try and slow the economy down and as they have said more than once they're prepared to see some increase in the jobless rate in order to show that they're fighting against inflation is working. So yes, we can expect them to say that they're getting close to the target and that they mean to hold it there for some time. Okay, so that's on the fed speak and of course we have James bullard and other speaker today and the fed minutes from the last November meeting, which will come out on Wednesday to watch out for. Okay, that aside, what about China? Is the reopening issue really something actually for next year after the winter over the cases are going up, though it's still many restrictions. In fact, growing restrictions for China. I think the reopening has started. I don't think anybody thought it would be a Big Bang in terms of one day. It's on one day off. It's going to be nothing like that. It's going to be a very gradual under the radar kind of thing because of the COVID zero policy. It's going to be very awkward for them to ever say that they have completely switched it off. But if you look at the way in which they're moving, the lockdowns are not as draconian as they had been in the past. So for example, this week, we've seen some lockdowns in Beijing, but whereas in the past, they would have locked down an entire residential area. They're doing it piecemeal. So they're locking down maybe one building within a residential block rather than the entire complex. So that's quite a different policy. They're not. Making such a big noise about it. And they're putting out yes, they're putting out the numbers about the numbers of people who have got COVID. They look relatively high. But then again, they most likely underreported the numbers previously anyway. So it's a little bit questionable about what we can read into that. The signs on the ground are that they're gradually moving away, allowing more openness, more movement around. But it is going to be a slow process. It's going to be a city by city, state by state, move, and it's not going to be something we see we're certainly tomorrow the whole country is completely open. It's not going to be the case, but it is going in that direction. Plus they're putting other measures in place to show with the property support and other things to show that the country is starting to open slowly. Okay, well, that's the story we'll continue to watch closely, of course, as a develops as well. Bloomberg's markets live editor Mark cranfield.

China's Guangzhou locks down millions in 'zero-COVID' fight

"It's 1512 in Beijing 7 12 here in London. Now China is experiencing a surge of COVID-19 infections nationwide, and in the southern city of Guangzhou, home to nearly 19 million people, daily infections surpassed 5000 for the first time. The city has been placed under strict stay at home orders leading to crowds of residents clashing with police. Well, I'm joined now by didi Tang, Beijing correspondent for the times didi thanks for coming on the show. What are the new lockdown rules in Guangzhou? So whenever a local government imposes lockdown, usually that involves people staying at home and then the government is going to come to you with a supplies because you're not supposed to even go out to shop for the necessities for the food. So a government will come to you to do that the PCR test and they will come to you for they will come to you to supply the food necessities. So in the case of Guangzhou, actually it's interesting in a way that actually has exposed some kind of very vulnerable the parts of the population. So the protest that happened on Monday night happened in this we call that one the village inside the city. So this is kind of the settlement or the neighborhood where loss and low wage workers they come to the city and they're looking for jobs either in a factory or in sometimes you know it kind of like workshop style the smaller the plants that they will come to do those like the factory the work. So those people they tend to concentrate in one area. And then in those areas, the basis services just lacking compared to sort of the traditional, the more established neighborhoods, right? So in this case, in Guangzhou, it happened in one of those SSA village insight. So those people, they don't get as much the support as probably the rest of the population, right? Because the micro workers, they're not registered properly. So the government doesn't know where they are, who they are, you know, how many of them they are in the neighborhood. But anyway, so at the end of the day, they will not get enough supplies. And they will not, of course, if you are not getting in the food. And those people, they were voted. And this is one thing. They already, you know, they're not making tons of money. They work by the day. They get paid by the day. If they get locked down, they don't get income. And then on secondly, they're not getting enough food, right? Because they're not there. So that was why all the sentiments, the anger, the frustration, they broke out. And then they said on the barricades and you can see there was trying to get the food, right? And after the protests you see the rice, all of it all over the ground. And all the anger may be attacking the volunteers. But anyway, go ahead. I just wonder how many people were involved in how widespread these protests are and what the authorities responsive to them. So I will think at least we have teachers in order to have to guess based on the video guys being available circulating online. Internal social media, I will go to way book very quickly, all those posts that have been deleted. But you sort of can see, you know, it happened for what people say, oh, you know, there was something the trouble happened, something happened last night here. So I think the area of actually it's not as big as we probably think. It's covered in one or two one street. I think it's like one, we call that this all we're talking about probably four or 5 blocks. You know, if you're thinking about residential kind of the city four or 5 blocks, I think that's one street involving 45 blogs. I don't think it's that widespread. It's just, as I say, we call that what the village in the city, right? So it's a concentration of houses for the poor, the micro workers. And again, but then we don't know how many people are there, because once more apartment, maybe you think it's only for one person, but maybe they will be able to cram in the 8 workers. But judging by that, the video we're talking about hundreds, that's easy to be hundreds of people that were involved in the protest. I wonder how unusual it is to see public protests like this in China. It's very unusual. Usually here, I think people they were just like, you know, if there's a lockdown, it's very hard for you to even to get out, right? You know, together all together. So in this case, I said, because it's kind of concentration of workers. So it's probably more likely for them to be able to communicate with each other to do something. Otherwise, you know, once there's a lockdown, you're kind of separate from each other, right? You're in your residence compound. Someone else even does your compound. The security guards, they're at the gate. You won't be able to go out and other people will be able to come in. So overall I was thinking in the last three years because of COVID control and the professional control measures. The likelihood for any kind of mass gathering, right? Has really gone down. Drastically, just because people can't move freely. And then there was one case earlier this year, some of the people, the banks depositors, they found the money, which the money was, the money was disappearing from bank accounts. So they were trying to travel to the city to enjoy right to some protest and what they found out is that their health code turned it like yellow and the red. And which means they could not even get on the train or like those kind of checkpoints everywhere. They would be stopped. So overall, it's getting very hard for people to gather. So a protest like we saw on Monday on Monday in Guangzhou is it was very rare. And the authorities really cracked down, didn't they? If there's any kind of if there's any mass protests or any kind of gathering, right? To air your grievances, right? This is something that the government does not tolerate at all. Whether it is during the pandemic or not, even before the pandemic, we call those mass incidents right before the pandemic began in late 2019 and early 2020, right? Before that Chinese, the members of Harvard, they were gathering to protest some sort of a chemical plant or like in the incident in similar rates for the rubbish, right? And that those people they were trying to gather. So for the Chinese government, no gathering. That's I think because once you see the masses, what they mobilize, when they have mobilized together, they have one political appeal. And that's considered a is something very risky for the government they're going to, whatever it is, whatever the appeal is, whether it's for environmental causes or some other issues. The government is going to is always, we're always calm down to crack down because they don't want any kind of gathering to snowball, you know, to become more widespread. And then to include even more political demand, like maybe this, we don't want this chemical plant in our backyard. But what it is we know together, more people should join and it's going to become sort of more like political roof it. The government is very, very careful. They want to make sure you stop it as early as possible. So generally speaking, the Chinese government does not tolerant any mass gathering. Didi, thank you very much indeed. That's didi Tang there. Now still to come on the program, we take a look at how South Korea is wielding soft power in the world of cinema. It's a major function is to let the people know how diverse and how beautiful and how interesting and enjoyable Korean films are. This is the globalist, stated.

"Oh hi, yoga. Our village is huge, with mountains, the sea, a big harbor, and low lying fields. Strongly a Hong was born in all Khan, in a small house with dirt floors. It's not far from Hong Kong in the province of Guangdong. All kind village has always been poor. Most people fish on small boats are they keep in the bay, or farm the open plain between the village and the next town. When I was little, I'd run around with a group of friends. Stealing sweet potatoes and grilling them. They tasted different from the ones at home. Would get him into a lot of trouble. In the 1990s, potty officials started selling off village land to developers. The money they made didn't always go to the right place. They were corrupt. Many officials were pocketing the money. Keeping what was ours for themselves. When ordinary people went to them for anything. They would only help you if they were bribed. How much money would you have to give them? It depended on what it was. A small thing like getting an ID card, we used to have to give them two packs of cigarettes. Anything that should be part of their job, they'd won a bride. Why should we be at their mercy? They were taking what was ours without our knowledge. Decided to do something about it. So I came up with this idea of doing something for my hometown. And that grew into patriot number one. Patriot number one was Leo Hong's pen name. One night in April 2009, he wrote a letter to everyone in his village. He signed it, patriot number one. The name is important. Because I feel my actions are patriotic. He drove around the streets in the dark with hundreds of copies. He scattered them in doorways and village squares at the temple and the police station. We are not the slaves of a conquered village, the letter began. Over 10,000 mu of our land has gone missing. That's more than one and a half thousand acres. Corruption had become a huge national issue, almost every village, town, and city had stories like all kinds. By the end of the next day, hundreds had joined a group, le Hong created on social media. They decided they'd take a petition to the government in the provincial capital, Guangzhou. I did everything according to China's policies. A woman was the whole thing. We were not violent citizens that the government later took us to be. We did everything according to the law. Officials from all kinds tried to stop the petition from reaching their superiors in Guangzhou. They physically blocked the entrance to the building. But drawing their Hong in a small number of other villages kept going back every few months. They persisted for two years. But the government ignored them. So in late 2011, Lea Hong and his fellow petitioners decided they needed to do something bigger and braver. A group of them started planning a protest march. They were risking everything. And they knew it. Actually, standing up takes a lot of courage because as everyone knows. The government will shoot the bird that pokes his head out.

there are actually access to two other vaccines Well let me pause there not access necessarily There's another mRNA vaccine that's in the final stages of trials We think that maybe that didn't pan out and that's why we haven't heard much about it lately but they do actually have access to Pfizer and BioNTech mRNA vaccine that they're not using So what's happening here is China is pushing full steam ahead trying to get that mRNA technology with their own companies to launch it out across the country in China with Chinese technology It's probably an unfair question but is it more hubris or is it politics that led China not to use the BioNTech vaccine in the country Now they did push it through four Hong Kong use but not in China And I'm curious what you've heard on that front China has been very forthright about how important it considers the safety of its people It has put that above every single other thing and has patted itself on the back for its success in limiting the outbreaks limiting the number of deaths And it just seems so short sighted to have not prepared the population for an outbreak that everyone knew was going to come Perhaps it was hubris They had so much success early on If you don't have the virus circulating in your country then it doesn't matter what kind of vaccines you're being giving to people They're not going to need it at all And from what I understand in the case of an mRNA vaccine it's much more design able I guess if you wanted to target a specific variant what do we know about the latest variant You mentioned Shanghai The latest variant that is hitting the city right now Well it is the latest version of omicron BA two is what it's known as And it is wildly infectious Every one of these variants that we've had since the original wild type has been more infectious We were everyone was talking about Omnicom that highly highly transmissible most contagious form BA two is 10% even more infectious than that So the idea of trying to get this outbreak under control with anything less than these stringent controls that they've unveiled in Shanghai is unlikely So we do know that it's spreading quickly We know that it's incredibly infectious and people are worried about what the next variant is going to be as far as what vaccine should be targeting them That is a question for the entire world and everyone is talking about it Many of the companies are already working on vaccines specifically to target this particular strain but also the WHO the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other people are talking about hey we need a policy We need to not just do this as a one off Hey let's give boosters every four months to 6 months Let's have a plan in place And only now two years later two and a half years later are they actually starting to think about that Michelle thanks so much for.

"From kunming to Guangzhou by Chinese on this particular route. It overlays with the top of descent for that particular flight path. So that's just kind of one of the tracking things that sifting through the data I found it interesting. The other point is that I want to talk about vertical speed because a lot of the initial numbers because it's such a big number. That was the focus of a lot of the initial reporting by media. But I want to take a step back and talk about what the vertical speed figure actually is for ADS-B. If you compute the vertical speed after the fact. It does not match what we display. There are different numbers. Because after the fact, you know the time difference, you know the altitude difference, and you can compute that figure. What the vertical speed displayed on the site is. The barrel rate of change that the aircraft is computing for that particular moment in time. So it's saying all else being equal if nothing changes, this is my vertical rate. And so that's where those numbers come from. When the aircraft is computing its position in space at that point in time, that's where that number comes from. It's not how fast an aircraft is falling or climbing over a time period that is then known in the future. So the differences that these numbers are what the aircraft is saying at that point in time. And it changes based on the parameters that the aircraft then interprets. So while these numbers are big and while the post computed numbers are also big, that's why they are different. So we've talked a little bit about that before, but I wanted to go over it again because it's worth repeating. Interesting. One more point also, in response to the crash of this aircraft, China eastern had actually on, I believe, its own accord grounded the 7 37 800 of which it has over a hundred frames, actually. I didn't know it had that many, but proactively it removed the 7 three 8 from its active fleet. So it joins the 737 max 8, all three. They took delivery of before. That grounding. But interestingly, they did not ground the 737 700, which as far as I know, is essentially the same aircraft as the tiny bit shorter. Yeah, I mean, I guess they're being proactive until they understand exactly what may have caused the crash. The other interesting thing is that Chinese aviation writ large is undertaking. Basically a safety audit of the entire commercial fleet. I'm not sure if that's more than doing something for the sake of doing something, but it's interesting nonetheless to see what may come of that. Yep. So at this point, we need to sit tight and wait for investigators to do their thing and have already had quite a number of press conferences that trickle out information. So we'll keep apprised of the details and relay them as they come. Absolutely. Jason, let's take a quick break and when we come back, we can talk about what is happening in the Russian kind of updates on the Russian civil aviation sector. What eases warning about and then we can talk about some new planes, new routes, and what happened shortly after we recorded last week. So stay with us, we'll be right back..

"Art is functioning. Two photographs. One from 2016, and one from 1980. Which was the work by artist Dora Garcia for the beginning. And they show a roundabout in the city of Guangzhou. This is the main location of the famous uprising, which happened on the 18th of May in 1980. During the time of dictatorship in South Korea, students in this city, which is having about a million and a half inhabitants, were demonstrating against martial law. And for some reason, this particular day, the government sent in the paratroopers who killed many civilians in broad daylight. The citizens of Guangzhou fought back and surprisingly they managed to push out the paratroopers, and they held the city for about a week. So it became a mini Paris commune, you could say. They self organized with food, taking care of the wounded, the dead, even publishing an informal newspaper. After one week, the military came back, and they crashed the uprising completely and even more blood was shed. One of the starting points of this uprising, which for many people was the beginning of the democratic movement in South Korea, was a night school that took place in the local bookshop called noctua in the months preceding the uprising. And it was this bookshop that tora Garcia was reconstruction reconstructing as her contribution to the 11th Guangzhou Biennale. So not only was it a facsimile, three dimensional, it also tried to reconstruct as much as possible. The books that were available back then, as well as relevant contemporary art books. Called it a functional fiction. And it was used as a meeting place during the biennial. It was also a meeting with the owner of the bookshop at the time in 1980. So this is a work that condenses what this biennial is about in terms of thinking of it among the world biennials. It's a memorial to the uprising because when democracy eventually came to South Korea in the mid 90s, some people in the municipality of Guangzhou decided to instead of making a statue or the like commemorating the uprising, a cultural event should be created the biennial, which ever since then has happened every two years. So where are we? We are in Guangzhou in the Guangzhou Biennale exhibition hall in the outskirts of the city. And it's a purpose built exhibition space for the first 1995 biennial to giant white shoe boxes, if you wish. And when they were built, this was a green area with no housing surrounded it. This has changed rapidly. So now it's in the middle of a residential area, not unlike tends to console, where I used to be the director, a suburb of Stockholm, with late modernist housing. A lot of what we could call modest everyday life goes on around the biennial building. And a street full of shops and restaurants is neighboring it, and this became an interesting and important aspect for the biennial. So it is certainly important to you work with, and I was fortunate enough to be able to put together a curatorial team with been a choice the curator as margarita Mendes and Michel Wong as assistant curators. And we chose not to circulate promo photographs of ourselves, but we asked the artists brand Krause to portray us and he decided to do it through our hairstyles. And we were interested in embedding the biennial in the city. We were interested in working closely with artists. And we selected 30 artists whose practices we found strong, relevant, even urgent. Those 30 artists were invited to make site visits in order to make new work, we tended to bring them together in groups, which created a certain sense of community, let's say, because they could then also follow each other's development in terms of the projects. And once they were there, we took them around, they met a number of local people here, a guided tour of the strong tradition of wooden architecture in the city. And keeping in mind that we were interested in mediating art intensively in the biennial. And we thought of the production locally as part of that mediation. Mediation is not only something that is added at the end when works are on display, but it actually starts the moment the artist comes foresight visit, but also continues when the work is being made through local workshops or craftspeople or whoever it is that is involved. We kicked off the biennial 9 months before the official exhibition opening, which was in September of 2016. So once a month from January, we gathered for a weekend with, for instance, such site visits by artists, but also events in collaboration with the local artist collective called mite ugro. They at the time had a small space in an old market and that became the hub for the monthly gatherings. We also had artist screenings. So artists who were invited could also share some of their earlier work. And we asked everybody who was coming to bring publications because the local art collective complained about the difficulty in getting recent books and catalogs connected to contemporary art. And this became the beginning of the mito art book collection. And we continued throughout the year and after the biennial, this collection was donated to one of the local universities. We did readings from the books, so a group of local artists and the curatorial team selected texts that were read and discussed. Curated walks in the city, a way of getting to know the place from the perspective of the locals. This particular tour was about.

"World making. A curator, writer, and educator from Stockholm, currently serving as a counselor of culture at the embassy of Sweden and Moscow. The 8th climate what does R two the 11th Biennale will be preceded by a little preface? I want to say that I'm particularly happy to participate in a symposium dedicated to the memory of Marion von Austen, who was not only a very special and wonderful person. She was a unique force when it comes to cultural production, including curating. And it is in fond memory that I keep this exhibition that Marion did together with pettish pillman. At times the constable in 2016, just to bring us into her very special spirit of working, it was a research based project which she did together with Peter and a number of other collaborators looking at a play from 1968 by the legendary German writer Peter Weiss called the Vietnam discourse, which was an attempt to look at Vietnam, the conflict there from a different perspective, not thinking of that geographical place as a constant victim of the history of oppressing powers, but also searching for other routes, other histories within its own history. And he actually traveled there with. The stage designer who also happened to be his wife. And the exhibition that Marianne and Peter created in Stockholm was a mini project exhibition, her very special kind of exhibition, which circled around this place. The exhibition included documentation of the stage designed for the play, which was staged the first time in Frankfurt. It was hotly debated. The start of what we today call documentary theater. And I think I have learned a lot of things from Marion. And I always hope that I keep some of it with me. And including doing the Guangzhou Biennale, which I will now move on to. So here, an image which is showing the top part of a champagne glass filled with oil, it's cast against a black background. The liquid is glistening blue, yellow and pink. It's almost like the famous photos of the earth taken from space back in the 60s. As one of the substances of our planet, oil, is assumed to follow its physical loss, but the image here says something else, the horizon of the oil is tilted. It's creating an upward slope read from the left or downward hill if you read from the right. So not only is the new geography emerging in this image, but also loss of physics that are different from the ones that we know, so I saw this image on the computer screen in any couple of studio when I did research for the Guangzhou Biennale. And I felt that it was a condensed picture of a condition somehow in which many things are askew. Looking at TELUS, our planet from a distance, however beautiful, it reveals that climate change is happening on a macro level. Certainly with the use of fossil fuels, propelling the process. And at the same time, it shows that the micro level of individual life is played out in dominant oil dependent lifestyles across the world, and that this demands change. The champagne glasses, as it were, are still very prominent in our world, but they are being challenged together with the addiction to oil. So printed on a fabric, hanging high in the entrance area of the Guangzhou Biennale hall's gallery one, I think the image also points to today's image regime. In which images are created, circulated, proliferated, and sourced digitally. And online, through the art world, but also beyond. And within this regime, relevant artworks do maintain an active relationship to their surrounding reality, whether associatively, analytically, critically, personally, or politically so. And to engage with such artworks and to place art with this particular approach sent to stage was one of the ambitions of the 8 climate, what does art do? Addressing the agency of art in relation to a revitalized and accelerated understanding of art's own relevance. Thinking of how to supplement and augment traditional understandings of art's own relevance and application in the sphere, both of life and political reality. The utility of this renewed relevance does take place in the midst of what is otherwise a strong infrastructural focus in the sphere of art in many parts of the world and also in the treacherous terrains of existing public and private systems. So a central part of this interest in the performative aspect of art is its imaginative and projective qualities, arts, active relationship to the future. So the title, the 8th climate, it refers to a state which we might reach through our imaginative perception. The notion of the 8th climate or the imaginal goes back to the 12th century to the Persian mystic and philosopher, and was elaborated by the 20th century French philosopher Henri Corbin. And he speaks about how while ancient Greek philosophers identified 7 physical climates of the earth, the 8th climate is an additional climate which functions as an inter world between the natural and the spiritual worlds. Corbin describes the 8th climate as ontologically real and existing, but beyond our ordinary way of perceiving and understanding things. So a little bit like a mirror, which is not the same substance as the image which it is holding. And yet the 8th climate establishes real imaginative knowledge and function while escaping rationalism as we know it, according to corban's reading of saurabh. And in doing so, I think it reveals interesting parallels to.

Morons in the news
"Have three quickies for you here Starting off with a woman in Florida. Who kept trying to kiss random strangers at a bar? She then called nine one one to report the business was not enforcing social distancing rules. Once again this was a woman from Florida in a bar so I know it doesn't connect her going up and kissing random people and then calling nine one one herself but that's Florida am. That's what happened. I guess the biggest shock. Here's the calling nine. One one hundred it is it everything else. Just sounds like Wednesday. Right exactly A Huge House party in Los Angeles. That was breaking. Stay at home. Rules ended when a man accidentally shot himself in the Groin. I can't tell you how many parties menin shot themselves in the groin and it just puts a pall on the whole thing. It just brings it down. It's the in difficult the good times. It really is forever even if you're not the one with the with the bullet in the groin around things as more on of the day is a South Korean soccer team. They played a match last Sunday of because South Korea's reopening from its very strict corona coronavirus lockdown and the team which is called. Fc Soul. They won the match against Guangzhou F C. They said that they felt bad at the players didn't have any fans in the stand. So they got the. They got a hold of them themselves. A whole bunch of love dolls and put face masks on them and put them in the picture. I saw the picture and you know what the not only are that are. The sex dolls are love dolls wearing masks. They're also socially distanced at least feet. Apart in the state in their defense they had ordered mannequins but the supplier gave them these love dolls and it was fans watching notice. That not only were these dolls wearing clothes with sex doll logo the company of the sex doll on it. They were real real busty which is not a typical thing for mannequins especially must've must've been quite a game because all of the dolls were going. Lou. Oh they were surprised but todd initially called them sex dose and then corrected him so a love dogs to make it more politically noticed that myself. I wanted to go along the way he described it to and I just you know so. I'm sorry I apologize. Sort very unhappy enthusiastic to the cheering on their team. Text the word Moron to eight eight eight two six two seven four three seven. We'll send this straight to your phone and when you do that you're automatically registered to win a bottle of our very involuntary hand sanitizer called people make me sick and next in line. We go to Devon England. A police department. They're rated drug dealers house. They found cocaine. They found Scales and a lot of money inside but they did not find the drug dealer. At least they didn't find him until they went outside and they looked up. It turned out. The Guy Tried to escape by climbing through the skylight to hide on the roof and he ran out so fast he was totally naked and holding a box full of marijuana. They eventually talked him. Come down and arrest him. Let me just say if you find yourself on your roof naked holding drugs. You need to change your life's path. How has the change? How big of a box. Don't smoke at all once chief. We're in lockdown last. How big of a box did he have a not say? It did not say how big it was.
Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
"Joined by. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel former Obama. White House Health Policy Advisor. He's Vice Provost Global Initiatives University of Pennsylvania and Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine Doctor Manual. When we start with you. Where do you see us right now? Are we doing enough in terms of large scale social disruption and changes to slow the transmission of this epidemic? So first of all. I've been saying for several weeks now that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Parsley it's GonNa get worse because we have testing. That's just going to show us how prevalent the illness is. It's also getting worse because we know we have more community acquired infections as I mentioned to someone today. You know one week ago. We weren't even talking about new Rochelle and now new. Rochelle is a major topic in New York. And that's a lockdown and if we focus on new Rochelle without thinking about all the other places that this virus is maybe Washington. Dc maybe the suburbs of Baltimore. Who knows where the problem is? We need a more systematic less uneven response. That has to be pretty uniform. Because just 'cause we're seeing it new Rochelle doesn't mean Rochelle's the only place in New York that Scott and that response does have to include things like much more prevalent testing so we really have a handle on who's got it and who doesn't and a really good model is South Korea if you look at their trends you can see that. They're beginning to bend in South Korea. We also do need to inform people. We use the term social distancing like everyone knows what it means. It's not immediately obvious to people what that entails and how much you need to be separate from people explain to what should people know about but a large part of it. You people have come up with all these numbers no more than one hundred people to meet no more. The issue is density. How close are you to people? How easy is it for the droplets to spread? How much are you sort of packed in light sardines or not and that real? I mean that's a physical thing That is really important and I do think we probably need to educate people to minimize the. They're our contact and to stay home more. You can go out where there's no one else if you're going walking in the woods or something or going to a place where there are other people But I do think Restricting how we move around is going to be important I will note that not every but most of the Ivy League schools now for example colleges mine included. We're going online. The second half of the semester is all going to be online. Students aren't going to be in. Dormitories accepts students. That can go back to their home country and still complete the semester. So you are seeing a lot of action. But it's not concerted and that's what it's not systematic and that's what's bothering me Dr Hotels. We've been checking with you throughout the unfolding of the goal pandemic and I'm curious. Are we learning more about the virus itself about the basics about the transmission rate? Which seems to be maybe lower than at first. We thought the fatality rate the incubation period. Where is our knowledge right now about this so the transmission rate still seems to be? Pretty High Dr Fao. She mentioned. It's probably a significantly higher than the influenza as well as the mortality rate. But the you know just to echo and reinforce some of the things zeke Doctor Emmanuel was was saying we've learned a few things from a recent analysis. My colleague Mark Lipchitz sit at Harvard School of Public Health Chan School of Public Health together with a student a doctoral student. Ruan Lee didn't analysis of the Chinese cities in terms of how severe the epidemic is with the extreme example being Wuhan rare nine thousand people wound up in and severely ill with two thousand in the ICU versus city. Like Long Joe where there was only twenty a big difference right and it looked like it's primarily to do to how quickly you got on top of things after sustained community transmission started. So they let it go for six weeks. Before they implemented aggressive control and testing whereas in Guangzhou were the only at twenty cases one week. What's the lesson learned from the United States We're now about three weeks into this in terms of sustained community transmission. We had our first case of community transmission around the end of April so subtract a week before then. So we're getting to the point where because we're not doing adequate diagnostic testing and implementing those very important control measures. That seek pointed out. We're in a situation. Where we could risk being closer to Wuhan and Guangzhou and and we do we. We can't be there so now is a very critical period over the next couple of weeks where we have to be very aggressive about closing down major venues. We just this Houston. Today with the Rodeo was a tough decision but was the right decision that we're going to have to do this all over the country right now and the reason is this because if we miss that opportunity we then have. Our new problem becomes surge capacity hospitals. Where we're not gonNA have enough beds. We're not GONNA have enough into ventilators. We don't want to go in that direction. So now's now czar. Big Schnauzer going to be our last chance. We've already missed that in over the last few weeks. Can I reemphasize something? Peter says which is so in the entire United States. We have about eight hundred thousand hospital beds a little under eight hundred thousand hospital beds. In the entire United States we have under seventy thousand adult intensive care unit. Beds we have about sixty five thousand ventilators with the strategic supply. I've heard that it goes up slightly under one hundred thousand. That's our maximum capacity in the country at the moment if you imagine that even two percent of the population gets the corona virus and we have about six percent who are seriously. Ill GonNa need a respirator. We've exhausted all that supply. Just for those patients. Forget the heart attack patients. Forget the patients who need it for any other reason and I think what Peter said is exactly right we probably have missed two or three turns over the last few weeks where we could have gotten things down and just focusing on the hot spots. Seattle New Rochelle. I think is not. We need a much more systematic countrywide approach so that we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. Which already you know doesn't have that much search capacity in it. Dr Hotels Final Point to you for people that are watching this I. I've struggled with this for the last three weeks right. Communicating in a way that does not induce catastrophe or panic but also is clear eyed about the risks. And I do think it's worth just going back to the distinction between your individual risk you random American one of three hundred thirty million that you will get very sick and need to be hospitalized or may as life threatening illnesses that individual risk for any given random person is probably low in the grand scheme of things and this systemic risk to the society and to the healthcare system which is extremely high at this moment. Is that a fair way of phrasing. It yeah absolutely and also remember. It's it's all about communicating. What our top priorities are in. This is what I've been disappointed about. We've lost a lot of time because of a blanket statements that are not backed by data saying this is contained. This is this is the cold. This is the flu when in fact we know that there are specific groups that are at high risk including older older individuals those with underlying disabilities and our healthcare workers. And so what I've been looking for is at the White House. Press briefings to say. Look these are four. Bit Concerns Right. These are three or four populations That were concerned about This is a why we need to get on top of this very quickly. And here's what we're doing about it and and historically the American people have responded very well to this They understood this three. Bola Zeka as we say. This is not our first Rodeo so so we know how to respond and we just need that clear kind of concise messaging right now. All right. Just had one thing to Chris. Point which is we also do know the ass for any individual. The risk is low except we do know that there are certain people and Peter Emphasize of those who are over sixty or sixty five those who have chronic illness. They are at high risk and what we have done in. This country is aggregate them in nursing homes. Those are most vulnerable people people in nursing and we really have to social distance. There reduced the number of visitors. Probably two zero. Make sure that people are counting up and taking a donning protective equipment so that we don't have that Patriot play just explode with corona virus like it did in Seattle because almost every one of them is really on the verge just like the cruise ships. Good Point -portant point Zeki Manual. Dr Peter Hotels. Thank you

Why You Should Visit the Canary Islands
"Why should someone go to the Canary Islands. It's hard the summit up in one sentence but to absolutely Canary Islands are ornately unique landscape. Each island is probably different than the last there are white sand beaches black sand beaches. There are volcanoes stunning scenery views. Like the Grand Canyon on some of the islands there are pine forests. And you can get everything. It's for both adventure. Tourists that love to hike and explore for and people that want to sit back and enjoy Pinochle Outta so. There's a little bit of everything and you aren't going to see scenery like this anywhere else on the planet will you. You mentioned it was off the coast of Morocco. I guess we haven't said where it belongs. In terms of culturally. It is not Moroccan. It is not. It is actually part of Spain fine but it still has a lot of African roots and the historic people that live there before the Spanish inquisition were called Guavas. And so there's still a lot of historical artifacts in historical sites on the islands. That are really interesting for people interested in the more historical aspect of the islands as well. Well the the name comes from the Latin for the island of dogs can are not canary and because the guavas worship dogs and now is the part that I didn't know until I was doing the research for the show. Yeah it's really interesting in on one of the bigger islands tannery fe. There's actually some caves that you can visit where they're are actually still some remains of the ancient Guangzhou's that used to live on the island. Yeah it's really interesting to see some of that more historical outside of non European aspect excellent. Well what kind of itinerary do you recommend so first of all. There's a number of different silence as you see some major islands. Where would you recommend we fly into? It started it depends on how long trip you're going to take and I would recommend either going for seven days or fourteen days while you could do a shorter trip as well. I would recommend either flying into Grand Canaria or flying into tenor. Fa and if you fly into Grand Canaria which is the largest island and probably the one of the most popular especially for Europeans. There's a ton of stuff to do on that island Winston itself so you could also choose to do one island but let's start with a seven day itinerary because that's probably what most people would have have the time to do especially coming from the US so flying into Gran Canaria. You'd WANNA spend two or three days there and the great thing about all the islands islands is that for the most part you can take varies from one island to the next. And if you're doing a seven day itinerary you would WanNa pick either the eastern islands or the Western islands to save time from Gran Canaria which has beautiful beaches. It's got pine forests or some fantastic fantastic hiking on this island as well spend a few days there. Then you would want to depart in the evening to Sweat Ventura which You can take a a ferry to and that island has a lot of white sand beaches. That's the Sandy Beach Island because it is a little bit closer to the African taken coast. It gets that wind swept landscape. And there's some beautiful sea caves there. You can explore and some great beachside restaurants restaurants and from that island you can spend a day and then take the ferry over to lend throat and Lanzarote has tim and fire national park. which is about an area of about a thousand volcanoes and go will do a thousand? I did not though yes so its its. Nickname is the land of a thousand volcanoes. And it's an absolutely otherworldly landscape and I have never been to Hawaii but this this was another level of extraterrestrial landscape. And there's a lot of volcano that you can hike to and there's a lot of places where the lava or ancient lava has come up to next to the road and you can get out and walk around in it and it's really really interesting. There's also a place. Is there called Lahar area. which is this area where they have cultivated the ancient lava to grow wine? And you can do wine tastings there and even stay at a little winery as well. Well let's finish the area then we'll come back and do this obviously at much more detail. Yes so after lands are out. Then you'd WanNa fly to ten Kinda repay and spend your last two days there before departing back to the United States and you would connect through either Madrid Barcelona Celona or Lisbon most likely plying from the US. Okay so you started on Gran Canaria and what are we gonna do either so on Gran Canaria. There are a lot of things to do and GonNa depend on what you're interested in for if you're into the beaches than you're going to want to stay in the loss terrace area. which is the big beach town can get some exercise? They are walking along the beach enjoying doing lots of different restaurants and cafes. There's paddle boarding. You can do right out side if you stay on one of the beachfront hotels but one of the things that I loved. Today there was actually go up to Tom. Adama Nature Park and this area. It looks a lot like northern California. It's so so surprising. There's these endless pine forests. When I saw it I was like oh I had no idea that anything like that existed especially on an island that's close is to Africa so that was really interesting for me and up near that area? There's also some other great places that you can hike and walk at one is called the magic window and it looks out over. This giant monolith called the rock new blow and basically from this arch called the magic window. It's a natural sandstone arch. If you go at sunset you can see this. Trent monolith in the background is absolutely stunning. So I highly recommend going and doing that. And you can also hike to the monolith. It's a little bit farther away. They're not close together. But you could hide that whole area. But that's all remnants. The olds volcanoes. That created the island. So I definitely recommend that to and enjoying the beaches and other areas around the island as well so that would be what I recommend downgrade
