The U .S. and several Arab countries are in disagreement about the need for a ceasefire in the Israel -Hamas War. Secretary of State Antony Blinken held a news conference Saturday with the foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan, where all three nations said they shared a commitment to achieving peace in the Gaza Strip. We believe pauses can be a critical mechanism for protecting civilians, for getting aid in, for getting foreign nationals out, while still enabling Israel to achieve its objective, to defeat Hamas. Blinken says the U .S. supports a humanitarian pause in the conflict, though not a ceasefire, while Egypt's foreign minister called for an immediate ceasefire without conditions. Police in Germany are still negotiating with an armed man who's holding his 4 -year -old daughter hostage on the tarmac of an airport. Authorities say the man broke through a gate at the Hamburg airport last night and drove onto the tarmac while firing shots in the air.

Fresh update on "hamburg" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"Owned aircraft managed by third party service companies pretty much all the ways that you fly around Carol totally yeah not it's almost 19 higher than it was back in 2019 that was the last full year pre -pandemic year companies in -house flight departments are flying about the same as they did Carol four years ago that's interesting that's according to data from WingX it's a hamburg -based provider of market data and analysis on the private aviation industry we've got a great voice on this back with us is Janine Iannarelli she is founder and president of the private aircraft broker Paravian she and really sees daily what is going on minute by minute in the private aviation world she's here in our Bloomberg Interactive broker studio welcome back how are you delighted to be here thank you for the invitation it's great to have you here tell me what you said though when you walked into the studio and you were listening our to segment on the IPO market which seems like it's having a tough time getting going and that kind of related to your industry yeah just take your last guest story and slash IPO and insert the word jet what's going on that's a good question what we have observed throughout the course of 2023 the buyers are sitting on their hands and they've created excuses and I would say the trade has as well for them quarter over quarter so here we are the we're at end of the year this should be the busiest time of the year in the aircraft trading marketplace and it's relatively quiet wait I thought that we saw huge huge announcements from companies like Jet's buying many many Cessna citations for example earlier this year that doesn't count in a way no because that's the fractional share and they need to meet demand man fractional actually flying is up year over year I want to say the number is somewhere like 7 .9 percent whereas private flying is down 8 .3 percent year over year these how can that how those can things be both be true and Thomas Black in the story said flights from fractional operators so we're talking about net jets flex jet they've increased have increased 41 percent from 2019 levels you're still flying private when you use one of those operators so make the distinction for our audience so the private sector and the corporate sector is whole ship these are individuals and corporations that go out and acquire the asset and the management the it's crewing the company jet it's the company jet whereas fractionalize all the time you're buying a piece of an airplane and so you have access to uplift pretty much on -demand but you don't own the whole aircraft and you don't control the operation of it this is exactly what our own thomas black wrote about earlier this month and the question is that that i have for you is is that era kind of over when it comes to private ownership we've seen pushback from shareholders about flying private so now about actually these companies owning corporate jets because of carbon the footprint so companies are now not actually owning their jets outright and instead using those external services which do offer the on -demand private flying so the benefits of flying private without actually owning that asset so it's a conundrum i don't think demand has diminished it's just action has has diminished we really don't see people pushing away from private jets and looking for other means of adaptation it still is the most efficient form of moving goods and services goods and people around the country around the world but they don't want to own it not necessarily so i mean i personally have not experienced people say sell the jet because of all the issues that you just cited there ways are to reduce their carbon footprint you know smart flying direct flying united in the states is going to lead the way operators within the united states are going to lead the way to that goal of 2050 but you mean you broke her deals right correct so how much is your deal flow down this year from i don't know what's what's is it the peak post -pandemic that you measure against i'd be curious about that and also where it was maybe 2019 so good questions my business is off significantly but attribute i it to the aircraft that i'm actually offering i mean the market's sort of you don't like your inventory i love my inventory it's not but it's not what people want it's not in favor with the market today the most active segment of the business aircraft marketplace i would have to say is the small jet that that is the aircraft that uh... initially led the decline and then started to rise back out of the global pandemic what is this like a six exactly yeah i'd put it more in a dollar perspective but six to eight passengers somewhere two to seven million dollars and the aircraft range is going to be anywhere from about a thousand nautical miles to fifteen hundred so what don't people want then is it now yeah what is it that they don't want it it to seems be the category that i would call the super midsize and the ultra long -range aircraft why don't they want those it's a good question it's a really good question so first of all if we talk about the ultra long range that that's the pinnacle of the marketplace and the price point for those airplanes is anywhere from 50 million on this is it going to be like a gulfstream correct tim's yes a little bit into planes ah i can tell so that that seems to have fallen out of favor i mean there are buyers out there and there are plenty of inquiries i mean if i just look at the number of course inquiries i've received here today on every single aircraft offer for sale it just boggles my mind that not one person has stepped up to make an offer maybe more interesting is let's say i get two hundred queries over the course of three months on an aircraft my guess is ten percent are really going to buy an but less than ten percent of that ten percent have actually done anything forgive me but do interest rates matter i mean when we're talking at this type of money they don't matter for for real estate but they matter for so at least that's what real estate high end real estate do they finance these deals again like yeah good question so another good question my personal history is that i can count maybe on two hands how many people actually needed financing throughout my entire career is it typically needed using needed versus financing are two different things there are plenty of people who could pay you know outright for a forty thousand or sixty thousand dollar vehicle but if they get zero percent financing then they're going to take the financing exactly that now i have a number of prospective buyers that they may pay cash outright and then refinance later most of them do that with a financial institution that they already have a business relationship with the odd inquiry that i may receive for aircraft financing frankly is a little bit of a red flag for me because they shouldn't be asking me they already should have that in place right it's right they've got their bankers got they've the bank that they've been working with for years on everything else qualified everything um it's interesting i'm thinking about our audience um uh so how do you then use what what you are seeing to maybe tell you what's going on in the global economy is it an indicator for you or is it just maybe your your business your industry is going through some changes i would say flip that and say business jets are the indicator and they always have been now i think we're writing new history and have been since 2019 because you could take the playbook and throw it out the window looking back over 23 i was musing over the fact that we're going to chalk rebalancing and i'm wondering if this was not the downturn that always follows a great upswing and 24 because i'm going to use it to project a little bit it's going

Are you surprised at how resilient the German economy has been, despite the war, there is growth of 1.9% last year, is this thanks to the mild winter and do you think we'll avoid a recession? We had three mild weeks, but before we had three tough weeks, so saying a mild winter, the average is a normal winter. I would say maybe a little bit more than the average due to global warming. I mean, also that was has seen more snow. So there is some snow, but not that deep. So the world is becoming bomber also Germany, of course.

"July edition of Joan Hamburg Show and My pal, My Radio Cohort Radio husband, a man I've known for years and years and one of the best foodies. In the country is the one and only onto Schwartz, the food maven Arthur does and NPR show on Robin Hood radio, and he is probably one of the most knowledgeable people. I know when it comes to anything to do with food, and I always love to check in with him and find out what's going on in the Arthur world, and there's always something Welcome to you are the shorts. You thank you. Well, I have to say. Not that much is going on right now because it's too hot to cook, but it's true. It is, But you know, like every you it gets too hot to cook, so I do have a whole repertoire. Of the reason. You know, Joan, I keep up with things mainly because I cook every day. Um, I'm out in the stores. I love to food shop. I say. I like to shop. Anything I don't have to try on. So that includes food. And, um, Speaking of which I lost over £50. I cannot believe that's a lot of weight to lose. Yeah, I've loved I've lost over £50. You know what you did on your covid lockdown? That's what I did. I went on What they call the Keto diet, and I think I'm quite expert at this right now, having done it for like 10 months. Um and and that I cook every day and that I want to eat Well, even though I am not eating pasta, potatoes, rice bread. Nothing with sugar except fruit. And my even my endocrinologist said, are you could you could you could increase your carbs a little. So I've added some summer fruit to my diet, But you know, that's a good thing right now. It's not so hard to stay on Keto because you know what One thing that you really can eat all you want of sour creep his and when the weather got like this, I grew up in a house where her mother did not. My mother was a very good cook, but she didn't like to cook. So as soon as she had an excuse not to cook. We were eating sour cream and Now I got Bob Harnett, who didn't grow up with this to eat sour cream and cottage cheese mixed my mother. I grew up with that you didn't you and also we went in the days when we were eating pasta noodles with cottage cheese was one of my favorite things and potatoes. Oil protect my mother would she would boil two potatoes, Smile for my father and me, but she would eat strawberries and sour cream, bananas and sour cream, or she would cut up all kinds of fruit. And mix it with sour cream. And the other day I got inspired because I bought these unbelievably and it is unbelievable sweet cucumbers it made. It reminded me that cucumbers are related to watermelon and another melons. These cucumbers actually had a sweet edge to them. They were the English style. Yeah. Yeah, but I didn't buy them in the supermarket. I bought them at the green market at the farmers market. It's interesting. I'm anti farmers market lately because I find the prices, you know, users. There's no reason that I have to pay double the price of a tomato at the farmers market when they're selling me directly from the farm. I mean, there's no middleman to make money and the tomatoes aren't even is good. But I did go the other day because I needed to walk and I found these cucumbers. So I chopped up cucumbers, a dice them. Diced radishes, which are, you know, everywhere now, um, scallions and sour cream and I've had if I had a tomato, I would have thrown that in. I don't know if you remember this, but 1000 years ago when they were dairy, you know, kosher Jewish dairy restaurants in New York. Um, they would called it they would sell this dish and they would call it farmers caviar, which is actually a good name for because I must say it's very, very special and I It's not only on my Keto diet. But I don't have to cook. So while you're describing that I'm suddenly being taken back. Do you remember a cold soup called shop? Of course I remember. It was still making used to love that when I was a kid. Well, you were in an unusual child, because that is not taste that most Children like. Plus, it's this monkey color green. So you first you had to get beyond the color of it, but I loved it when I was a kid, and I still make it from time to time when I can find what's its base. Now we have few polar. It had green sorrow, sorrow. It's the herb sorrow. And I don't know why my grandmother had this In those days you were able to buy Big, well grown not little baby Bunches of herbs but really big, like lettuce, Bunches of sorrow. I remember her coming home with with Brown paper grocery bags full of this because, of course, it's like spinach. You cook it and it goes down to nothing. So it's very easy to has nothing to do at all except washing all those greens. So I just this last Saturday. You know, I'm going to see what happens this Saturday, There was a farmer at the Greenmarket who was selling big Bunches of sorrow and it's not. As I said, It's the It's sort of tough sorrow. I mean, it's it's big sorrow. So you have to wash his very thoroughly because it's really dirty and the way to do that is stick it in a big big pot and cover it with cold water, swish it around a little bit. Use your finger like a forklift to get the sorrow or if it's spinach. It's the same thing off the surface and you're going to see there's a huge amount of sand at the bottom. So you pump out the water. You do this at least three times I find necessary and then You put in the case of making shop, You just put the sorrow in a pot of water and bring it to a boil. And as soon as the sorrow is tender, which takes almost no time you've got shop. You can chop I usually like to chop up. The sorrow first and then put it in the water now to season it besides salt and pepper, which really diehard shop lovers will like just the sorrow but some pepper, But not for me, Um, I you can When it's heart, you can beat an egg to enrich the broth. And then when it gets cool, you can beat in sour cream, and I'd like also with chopped vegetables, like chopped the scallions, chopped radishes. If you want to put a big there, that's a good thing and then another dollop of sour cream. But you have to like sorrow. It's sour. In fact, in English, we usually call it sour grass. But its sorrow anyway, it's hard to find the kind of Bunches you need to make sorrow that said Manisha. It makes a pretty good shab comes in a jar. Uh, you drink it chilled and then I would just add some sour cream, And as I said, maybe a boiled potato when it could be skill. I'm going to try that. You know the other states Joan, not there and not to everybody's taste..

"Hamburg Show Talk Radio 77 w ABC questions that we get a lot is about theater. The heart of New York is theater coming back. Is it kind of be in the fall? How are they gonna handle it? The seats and most Broadway houses a notoriously close to each other. Are we going to have to wear masks? I want you to meet Daryl Roth, who's one of the great producers. One enough. Tony's To furnish Ah house with just awards, and she's really one of the masterminds in the world of theater. So I want to hear from her point of view. What? I don't think anyone can say definitively, but what Daryl Roth thinks is going to happen. And Daryl Roth has a playoff right now called Blindness which opened on April 2nd. But we'll talk about back too. So thank you so much, Daryl. Welcome. Thank you, Jonah and my goodness. Glowing intro. I thank you for that. You're very kind. But the big question is, you know when we would be safe to open Broadway theaters, and I know that the mayor said that you know things will start opening in May, but he was not really referring to the Broadway theaters. I think he was talking more about businesses. Smaller theaters, shops. I think that the death and restaurants yes, I think the best guess and are hopeful optimism leads us to believe that September might actually be realistic for Broadway to reopen. Um, I think the questions that people will have On all of this. Of course, it's just our best guess at this time. But yes, I think people will be required to wear masks. I think when Broadway opens, it will have to be close to full capacity. To be, you know, honestly, to make it work. I do think that there may be requirement to show proof of vaccination or proof of the negative test. You know all the covert protocols. They're still gonna have to be in place because this is not magically disappearing in September wish that we would. But all of this really the bigger question I have to say when our audience is going to be comfortable, we all yearn for theater. We all are dying to gather again. You know in a Broadway theater, But when will audiences feel comfortable doing that? And everyone has their own level of comfort? I mean, I will say that there is great excitement about the show that you referenced that we're doing downtown at my theater on 15th Street. It's called blindness. But there's a big difference here, and that is That we were allowed to open April 2nd, thanks to the city on the state guidelines because we don't have actors in this particular production. It's a theatrical event. It's a sound and light presentation that tells the story based on this wonderful book by Jose Saramago, and it is told through the voice, the very magnificent, hypnotic voice. Of Juliet Stevenson. So you come into a space, which is a flexible, open space, and we have a capacity of 33%. So it's 86 people at any given performance, and you're seated, socially distanced away from you know, your neighbor. We've done everything to make that Cove. It's safe. It is as as welcoming as can be, and the lines out the outside the theater for every performance. People are just so giddy. With happiness of being able to walk into a theater states. It's so great Broadway is going to have to be a different situation. So let's say you're doing which you have done so many a Broadway show at some point in the fall or late, fel, and you raised a point that I know that, like eating in a restaurant if I know that the staff is fully vaccinated. I feel comfortable. You know, Like inside someone bending over you bringing your food touching your food. I want to know they're vaccinated. I don't know how we can do that. In the theater, but I think that people would respond if they felt safe like that. Well, we can. Everyone in the house is back, he admitted. Yes, And certainly without questions, the theater staff will be vaccinated. All of the ushers. Everyone that's working in the theater day will be vaccinated. And the truth is, as these numbers of vaccinated people climbs. There's a very good chance that From both sides of the coin. The people that are vaccinated feel more comfortable going out and around and the people that you know are hosting them will feel much better. So I believe that that is the key. To our success of reopening, and it makes perfect sense, You know? I mean, look, we all still have to be careful. We have to be vigilant is this is not a guarantee, but it makes one feel much safer and much less anxious. And just the idea that we can come to the theater again. I mean, it's propelling all of us with such optimism. You know, we're like, giddy with the idea that soon this will happen. On beer, hoping we're hoping that the fall is, you know is realistic. And if everything could come together, and you know the numbers continue to increase with vaccinations and decrease with any cases. I think that feels Like it couldn't What happens. I know that many of my colleagues are gearing up for that, and certainly the productions that were on the board before March. And are in a position to you know, to open again. They're getting ready Producers. Yes. Yes, they're producers are getting ready. No course it's so important for tourism to everyone's crying about the state of tourism. Well, that's a natural anxiety if you're involved in city life, but tourism needs theater, too. That's one of us strong suits. That's absolutely true. And I think that probably in the beginning until until the tourism trade really, you know, gets back to speed. I think our theater going audience will be more tri State area and I think that we You know, the rest of the city totally depends on tourism. You know the hotels in the restaurants and theater for sure that maybe a little slower to return, but as soon as things Get better. I think little by little. Everything will get better and tourism will will come back. But I do think in the beginning, I think we're gonna be talking to a more local audience. Yeah, I think that's a good point..
Germany finds huge cocaine shipment; Dutch discover 2nd one
"Customs authorities in Germany and Belgium of sees the record haul more than 23 tons of cocaine into raids this month in the German city of Hamburg. More than 16 tons of cocaine was concealed in tins of wall filler, which had entered Europe on a container ship from Paraguay. The rest was discovered in the Belgian port of Antwerp, hidden in a container filled with wood blocks from Panama. It follows one of the largest ever heroin seizures in Europe. Officials at the port of Rotterdam impounded more than 1.5 tons of the class a drug detected in a batch of Himalayan sea salt the BBC's Anna
Decentralized Information Gathering
"My name is speak glory. And i'm a postdoctoral researcher at the university of hamburg in germany. My research interests focused on mulligan systems and in particular the aspect of decision making in those systems so interested in particular in information-gathering tasks. So you can think of like a team of robots trying to find out something about the world and doing this in a collaborative fashion. So that's the kind of task climbing just end especially the decision making aspects of that a while ago when there were some mars missions being planned we ended up sending curiosity and forget the other one maybe opportunity there was some discussion of. Hey maybe instead of sending two rovers the cost a lot like million dollars we should send a million rovers. That cost one dollars. Something like this didn't happen but is that the kind of case that would be interesting to a researcher like you so my interest are maybe more so decided to to agent case so at least. That's the situation for now. Do the computational complexity of the problems that i'm involved in cardiff did they are the practical limitations that usually means that the more than a handful of agencies steel beyond the reach of kearns state of the art mittens. Ya the fact that your work has heuristic involved is what actually i attracted me to it. So maybe we should talk about the elephant. In the room a computational complexity what would it be like to try and solve one of these problems in a sort of a rigorous complete surly brute force but in exacting method. Maybe conceptual it's Quite instructive to think about how you could actually solve this kind of problems in this brute force manner typically have you have your set of agents than each of the agents has some possible actions that they can take and as a result of taking some of these actions. They're going to perceive that in some observations from the world or or the environment. You can kind of see the when you have multiple agents acting simultaneously of course their sudden exponential number of possible combinations of actions that the agents take so. This is already an indication that it's going to be quite complicated so then when you consider that depending on the observation or feedback that beach of the agents get then they have obviously a choice like what to do for each of these possible observation. You could improve simple employees that okay. I'm i come to take a particular action. And then if i received some feedback then conditional that feedback. These is going to be my next action. You then basically have such a police for each of the agents and in principle. If you want to solve this very exactly you should look for or look at all the possible combinations of all the policies for all the agents so it really quickly get into this domain of financial complexity that makes it really challenging confrontationally. And do the agents communicated all can they may be share information is that within scope of the problem is one of the factors that i wanted to specifically consider because i think that the law of the previous state of the art work in like information gathering for multi agent teams. They tend to make this assumption that there is some communication during the task. So what what i could do. If i don't have the luxury of communicating during the task. What what i decided to do is kind of split this task into two phases. So you have this kind of offline. Phase the takes part before the test execution Are planning what they should do during the task. But once the task execution starts so deploy a robot sore or whatever your agents are then you're not allowed to communicate anymore so you have to kind of make plans beforehand decide. How are you going to act in each of the possible situation arises could we zoom in on an information gathering task. Are there real world. Examples of where your sorts of Research areas might be deployed for industrial or practical applications. Maybe one of the Kind of running examples that used in several of my papers relating to search rescue robotics. So you might want to deploy a team of robots to survey a disaster sized and maybe locate. Some of the victims might still be out there so this one example of the potential application for my research work.

It's a molten chocolate cake by The one and only Mark Bittman of the great food journalist and he's in, Cook writes cookbooks and I found this on The New York Times website and the whole recipe on Lee takes 30 minutes from start to finish. Now Mark's recipe is for four people. Of course I could eat Before, but if you want to have the ingredients, you can do that. And because it's so fast, 30 minutes start to finish. You can still make it this afternoon. You need a half a cup of unsalted butter, plus a little bit extra for buttering of the mold. So whatever you kind of put it in four ounces of bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate, and a lot of times they say, don't use the chips, But I like to make life easy or if you've got a scent. The sweet or bitter, sweet chocolate bar. Chop it into pieces. Four large eggs, a quarter cup of sugar and just teaspoons, two of them for flower so that you can dust the molds all the little souffle dishes. You've got it, so you just need a half a cup of unsalted butter four ounces of bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate, chopped up four large eggs, quarter cup sugar and a little flower just to dust so it doesn't stick. I put the butter in a medium. Bowl and I melted in a microwave. And then I add the chocolate to the hot butter. It's gonna melt and start I crack two eggs. I'm let's see what I do here. I crack two eggs in a bowl and I had two more yolks. I hate to tell you I don't use the whites. Some people save them. I really don't I then add the sugar and I use a whisk.

I divide the batter among the little dishes. And some people refrigerate for up to three hours, But I like to leave them and I can bring them to room temperature. I heat the oven to 4 50. I put the little cups on a baking sheet and I bake until the cakes puff to and they still jiggle a little when shaken. It is nothing. It takes 7 to 9 minutes.

My theory is, you know the trucks. If you come into Manhattan, you see the food trucks that don almost every neighborhood. There should be these great big taco trucks, which I have where I They're all over the street, and they should be able to go in, get their shots and come out with a taco. And that's the way we can get a large percent in their own neighborhood where people feel most comfortable inoculated. We've got to come up with some idea where it isn't almost impossible to get these shots. And people are really desperate. They want the shots, many of them there are afraid and they don't have the technology. And I think this is all of our problems.

German Woman, 95, Charged With Complicity In More Than 10000 Murders During WWII
"Have charged a woman with complicity in the murders of 10,000 people in the Nazi concentration camp of stood half in Gdansk, Poland. Woman who hasn't been named, was a secretary in the camp, Damon McGinest reports. The 95 year old woman has been living in a nursing home near Hamburg for the past few years. But between 1943 and 1945, she worked his personal secretary to the concentration camps commander. He was sentenced to prison in 1957. But she has always claimed that she never knew people were being gassed in the camp. She's now being charged with complicity in murder. This is an unusual case very few women have ever been tried for concentration camp atrocities. Most cases have focused on camp guards, not secretaries. BBC

"To the hospital. Hospitals are pretty overwhelmed. Right now. It's hard to get a hospital bed, and there's only a small percentage of them who doesn't and the people that I'm talking about right now they're fine. They don't have any symptoms. They think that this is over. And yet that's going to be their lives. Over the next few weeks, they're about to embark on some of the worst days of their life. And I wish that didn't happen if the vaccines and the warmer weather I think that accompanies spring in the summer will make a big difference. But what price are we willing to pay to get there? I think that's that's the question. And what does it take to get a certain segment of the population to pay attention and listen? Because His son a sentence in their hands. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I think this is I mean, this is fascinating. And I don't mean to filibuster you because I could talk about this all day long, right? And it's been my whole life for a year. But I will say that, you know, I think when you live in a country like the United States We live in a home, run based country, and what I mean by that is that the vaccine is wonderful. I really think it's a crowning scientific achievement. I I really do believe that. We haven't developed a vaccine for HIV moves and 40 years we have to authorize vaccines for covert and must in a year and that is what celebrating, but we also live in a country where That's all we care about emotion at the home run. We don't care. We're not willing to do the simpler, you know, base hits that could make a big difference as well. And we know that the home run will make a huge impact. But it will take, you know a few months for first to see the real impact of the vaccines, and there's a lot of lot of lives that could be dramatically improved in the face between now and then. That's that's the real thing. And then you know, I think it reckons with who we are the countries countries that have done really well about this pandemic. They didn't have anything We didn't have didn't have a magic therapeutic or a vaccine, Their countries where fewer people have died throughout the entire year from this pandemic, then we're losing every single day. So it Z something we need to think about and reckoned with. I think now they even in retrospect. Who are we? What do we value? How do we take care of each other? These things air so critically important. Right, and we have to learn to deal with anger and all the other things that have occurred because of what's going on in the country. And if you really want to take care of yourself. Chief Sharp build a better brain at every age and brain decline does not have to be your fate. So while we're going through all this, you can follow the good doctor's program and try to understand your brain function and how to take care of it. It's It's a gift, and we've got to keep it as long as we can. Do you think people should In addition to being tested for this hideous virus, should people get tested for things like Al's Hamas disease at this stage in life? Am, I am a always a fan of having more information than not. It's that the rocket of questions there are people who believe look quite tests or something for which there is no definitive cure like that. I'm a I'm a fan of more information because I think it's often served as a as a wake up call. Um, and also now that I know, And I say this with great humility because I've had a longstanding love affair with the brain. I've been a neurosurgeon for 25 years, I learned things Look over the two years I wrote this book. If you know that you can actually still generate you brain cells and generate the new roads in the brain that I'm talking about. Even if you did have a significant risk factors or even the genes for Alzheimer's disease. I knew that your brain was going to deposit these amyloid plaques and your brains, but it didn't have to cause you symptoms. I think I would be inspired even more inspired to to actually do something about it. So, yeah, I mean, get tested if he if you want recognize that there's no test that says for certain you're going to develop the disease. And there's not even really testified for certain you have it, and I like, you know, diabetes. Your blood sugar is X. Therefore you have diabetes. We don't do that with the brain. The brain is still a black box of sorts. I mean, how do you measure a well functioning brain? A well functioning heart pumps a certain amount of blood with each beat. Well functioning brain is what exactly that you can remember 10 items that doesn't really make a difference in terms of how your brain works. What is a well functioning brain, a brain that can expand the circle of us? Has one neurobiologist told me that you see a larger world outside yourself to incorporate more people into your circle. You know it. I don't want to sound overly euphemistic or philosophical. But I really get it a lot of these issues in the book. How do you describe what a well functioning brain is? Have you generate you brain cells? And what does it mean to you now? And how does it protect you later? London that food you shitty and I know I have to let you go Dr Gofer, but just because so many people have asked me to ask you if they have had the virus and have symptoms like a loss of taste. Loss of smell. Brain related things from your experience. Just that come back. I think so. You know way didn't don't and the only way we really know, But some of this is the passage of time. I mean, people have had symptoms for several months Still, and they were wondering what ever come back. We now have some data to show that people who had symptoms very early on like this. And lasted months are starting to regain some of that and I even went back and looked at data from SARS, which didn't cause his exact types of symptoms. But it is a corona virus as well. And even people who have sort of long hauling symptoms from that many of them did improve, sometimes with lung function. One function was was affected. Much longer term, but it's ours. The neurological symptoms. It does appear that most people do have return of functions. Just don't know how long it'll take long. Holland.

On this day: Karl M. Baer legally recognized as male
"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy wilson and it's january eighth. Carl m bear was legally recognized as mail on the stay in one thousand nine hundred. Seven bear was born to a german jewish family in eighteen eighty five and after his delivery the midwife said to his mother something along the lines of congratulations on the birth of your lovely daughter but the midwife had a different conversation with carl's father saying that this newborn babies body was ambiguous and that it wasn't clear whether she should call the baby male or female today we might have described him as intersex so the family went to see a doctor and added that when they registered carl's birth they would register him as a girl and give him girls name. But as carl grew up he had a very clear sense of his own self. He later described himself as a boy who was being raised as girl and his own writing he said quote one may raise a healthy boy in a womanish manner as one wishes and a female creature as manish never will. This caused their senses to remain forever reversed and his growing up was not easy at all. He was expected to play with girls but he didn't feel like a girl and the girls also seemed to suspect. Somehow he wasn't one of them not only did he not like most of the pastimes that were considered to be appropriate for girls but the girls in his community excluded him from playing with them his behavior and his interests and as he grew into a teenager his appearance and voice were more in line with what was expected of boys than what was expected of girls in one thousand nine hundred four at the age of nineteen he moved to hamburg. He studied sociology. He started working as a social worker and was also part of feminist organisations including campaigning against the trafficking of women he was also active in the jewish service organization beneath breath that same year. He started introducing himself to people as a man. He changed stress and no longer tried to hide his more masculine physical features and then in the midst of all this. He was injured in a tram accident when he was taken to the hospital. Doctors immediately noticed that his i d did not match the name or the gender that he gave to them. When he was admitted they ultimately contacted magnus hirschfeld of the institute for sexual science which was a research institute medical facility and an advocacy organization for what we would describe. Today as lgbt rights hirschfeld described bear as a case of quote erroneous sexual attribution. He and other doctors at the institute felt that bear would benefit from having surgery. It's what we would today describe as gender affirmation surgery after receiving hormone treatments bear had a series of surgery is starting in one thousand nine hundred six and this made him one of the first people to have surgery for this reason on january eighth of one thousand nine hundred seven. He was legally recognized as mail and was issued a new birth certificate that same year. He published a semi-fictional autobiography called memoirs of a man's maiden years and he published that under the pseudonym nfo body but it was widely known that he was the author of this work on october tenth of that year he got married although his wife died of pneumonia about a year and a half later and he got remarried later on bear continued to work as a social activist in berlin until nineteen thirty seven including becoming the director of the berlin lodges of buzney breath but then in nineteen thirty seven. He was captured by nazis and tortured after settling his affairs as quickly as he could. He fled germany and moved. To what would later become israel. He lived a quiet life there as an insurance agent and he died in nineteen fifty-six

"Fall 2020 season and I'm about to announce the authors or winter and spring and I don't think we've ever had a list this fantastic. It's great. I mean, we've got Brit Bennett we've got David Duke Avni. We've got Lilly King. It's the best list we've ever had so and still online. I'm excited for you now, when the undoing which everyone is still talking about and hoping there's another season when this came out, and it's episode after episode, but it it was predicated on your novel You should have known, but it was different in many ways. How do you deal with that as a writer? Like water off a duck's back again. Thank you. It's okay. You know it. Goodbye. Well, it has to be okay, because if it's not okay with you, you have no business offering your work for adaptation. If it's going to kill you every time they make a change, you should not. You know, you shouldn't have done it. And this is something I learned many years ago from my fellow novelist, My friend. What? Meg Wallet, sir. When I asked her, you know what was that, like scene one of her novel. Made into a film that I thought wasn't wasn't all that good, and she just said it was a variation on a theme and I think that's really is what we have to how we need to think of it. Adaptation is its own art form. David E. Kelly is an artist. The director was an artist. You know, people used the story in my book the same way. I have used stories in my Work, and I think that's part of the great well that we all draw from this sort of transmutation of ideas and characters and stories. And that too, to rail against it is to sort of missed the point. So I am completely at ease with it. I loved the Syriza. I did not know who had done it until the last minute. I was very I felt very validated that that he had that he returned in a way to the book that inspired it, But I was absolutely along for the ride, and I frankly I suspected a different characters. So there you go. That's so interesting, because well, he kidnapped people can read the book over again because it's such a good read. You should've known which is what the undoing is predicated upon and the issue of truth, which runs through your book. You know who's Who's telling the truth? How do you regulate the truth? How do we manipulate truth into what we want to believe? And that was very much a part of the TV Syriza's itwas. But in the book, it's really not so much a who done it. We're pretty clear on who did it that the focus of the book is. What is this experience like for this protagonist for Grace, who is the therapist? Who's about to publish a book of her own in which she sort of berates people for not paying attention to the truth? That people are the people show you right at the outset? They tell you Exactly who they are, If you're paying attention, But we as human beings have this have this sort of innate need to feel safe and comfortable. And in order to achieve that, we bombard uncomfortable truths with fiction of our own. You know, we sort of fictionalized reality to make it okay. And that is what Grace has done all throughout her marriage, and she she basically does the exact thing she kills. Patients not to dont coming to terms with that and sort of remaking her life After this devastation. That's what the book is about. So it's it is significantly different from the TV show. I say that people seem to compete, complaining a little bit on their reviews that it's not the same. I just like to remind them that That book existed six years before the television show. It's okay. It's exciting and congratulations to you. Thank you and Gene, by the way, has new books coming out and you can reach He's got ah, whole bunch of wonderful books that you can enjoy and read.

Serious and what that was like, because the television program had very little. They took the book, but it had very little to do with the actual book. Now I'm going to introduce you to an author who is very proud Heart. First book fiction has come out, and that's always exciting. It's not easy to get a book published. The book is called Goodbye, Orchid and The author Carol Abandon. Hendon is with me today, and she has had a fascinating a journey also because most writers have to write No matter what, and you heard our last authors say she was discovered in her fifties, even though she had written like 56 books, So it's not an easy path. But I'm curious, Carol, you had an interesting family background, including your family was originally your parents and grand parents from Shanghai is I remember and they came to this country and you spent a lot of you're bringing up in New Jersey. That's also true, Joan. First of all, it's great to be here in such an honor to be with you. You're absolutely right. You would never know it from my last name banned in India, But I am Chinese by ancestry, and my family's from Shanghai actually fled when the Communists took over China, and so I was born and raised in New Jersey, but for which I am incredibly grateful, But that traditional background is so interesting because you know it. It made them, you know, direct me in places in my life. For instance, I've always loved to write, and I wanted to be an English major when I went to college, But they said, You know what? Maybe take a look at your math and science skills and think about engineering instead. Which is the degree I ended up with. And the funny thing is those two things English and engineering have only one thing in common, which is the first three letters of both of those words. Very funny that that is funny. And I loved reading about your growing up when even the original the older generation your grandmother was making food that is a kid you probably were ashamed of. And that scallion pancakes, My daughter and I have spent this whole pandemic trying to make stallion pancakes. I can't tell you recipe after recipe, and we still haven't mastered it. Oh, that's so funny, Joan. I'll have to try to set your recipe in and it's true as a kid. You know, you just want to fit in. And so all of those, you know what seemed like Foreign foods are we don't appreciate them as kids. But now I look back with such nostalgia. And of course, there was so much love, you know, put into making all of that food. My grandmother, handmade. Of course, but I understand as a kid. In fact, my Chinese friends tell me how their families never talk about what happened before they came to this country. And that is a very common tale that you hear no matter where people come from. It's so true. I think there's a lot of pain in that past, you know for my family, and it's true from many Chinese families. They left everything they had behind. At least you know the physical goods. Of course, they had their safety, which was of utmost importance. And I just, you know, credit them so much for being brave enough to leave their home countries. A Carol, I'm furious At what point did you start working on this book? Your first novel Where you living abroad during this time? Time or is this when you were in America with raising your twins? Yes, that's a great question. So this journey we have to actually go back seven years to go back to the start of the story, and I really started writing. When we first came back from China. My company had sent me to Beijing with my husband and my twins for two years from 2010 to 2012, and so Was really after I'd come back from China in 2013 that I started writing Goodbye, Orchid. And at that time, I didn't even know that I was aiming for publication. I was really writing for myself and you know, finding it a place of solace And as the story took shape, it.
"hamburg" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Watching all these TV stream ing's and the one that has caused tremendous conversation, which had been adopted from a book is called the Undoing, and it was predicated on a novel called You Should have Known and Jean Have Carl. It's whom I have known for a very long time. Her parents were friends from the time we were young, married people here in New York. Gina, very prolific writer is the off. Care of this novel you should have known which stars Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, Donald Sutherland. Jeanne has written so many books admissions, and that also was a movie with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd's and two new books I heard coming out now has done theater adaptations. In fact, I saw something she did at the Irish rep, which was spectacular, so Jean a lot of writers. This is a fantasy toe, have a book picked up and turned into something like this, And this was the first. No, It's not. But I think you know Yes, it's difficult to see. But that's really how it stays. For most of us. It's sort of a pipe dream, and if you invest a lot in it, you're gonna be very disappointed and unhappy. It's best to think you know your job is to write the book and anything that happens after that. No, that's in the wind. But yeah, it was. It was a wonderful day that my phone rang, and it was my agent seeing that David E. Kelly had just bought the rights. But the book had actually sold to a different producer at the time of its publication, and that producer never did anything with it. So the option just lapsed, and I thought, well, that's said, and you know, it was like he did. Somebody was interested, but it didn't go anywhere, and the book itself did very well. The book did well, but I mean, a lot of people are discovering me. Now, you know, seven novels into my career. They've never heard of me before. So I'm an overnight success at the ripe old age of 59 well, will take success, however, and whenever And writing is your passion? Yes. Um, it's always been the only thing that I've ever wanted to do. I have. I have only two marketable skills. One is writing novels, and one is making chocolate dipped strawberries. This came from my job crone chocolates here in the 19 seventies, but everything else I mean, it was absolutely hopeless in terms of my being able to do it professionally, But this is the only thing that I ever really wanted to be good at so it for me. It's just wonderful that people are learning about my work. And the upside to having it happened so late in my career is that I have substantial body of work for people to Discovery along with me. Yeah. And do you remember as we look back the first book and was that an easy a publishing event Or was that like I've got to send it. Rejection rejection finding acceptance. Well, my first book, of course, was not my first book. My first book in My second book were rejected pretty much everywhere in the English speaking world, and that was quite devastating. It was the era of the sort of baby novelist you know, Jay McInerney and all these people were writing were writing novels. My contemporaries were already novels about going to nightclubs and doing drugs. And then it was very, very frustrating for me, but eventually Lee. I wrote a book that that somebody published and I At that time I had an agent who was a friend of yours Cam Bernstein on and she sold that novel to crown and then um, then I had a slightly different problem. Because that novel a jury of her peers really was a thriller. And suddenly I was being a kind of ushered into the thriller Lane and told to write a sequel to that book, and I really didn't want to do that. I wanted to write a lot of Some kinds of books, So it's set off a bit of an issue for me that continues to this day. Um, in which you know, people don't really know what kind of writer I am. They sometimes put me in the thriller. Category. But then I'll write a book that doesn't really feature that and then they get frustrated with me. And then suddenly I'll be rediscovered is a suspense novelist with the following books so I can't help it. I've always you know, I've always had to write the book I was writing. You can't really strategize about these things. But it has lingered to this day on. Do you see it in the comment in? Uh, you know, when people are reading the book, and they're reviewing it on Amazon their state? Well, you know where the twist you know, where's that done? It. Never wasn't done it, so it's a bit frustrating, but, hey, you know, I'm I'm very, very happy to still be here and still be writing and to finally have people kind of knowledge. Being interested in my work. Yeah, it's great. And of course, you married a writer to Paul Muldoon. When you first met Paul, Was he a poet at the time? Yes, he was. In fact, I met him and I was studying in England and polish from Northern Ireland. And I was writing poetry at the time and Paul is pull it that I I had read. I knew his work a little bit. And you know it becoming more exposed to him and to his work really was the death now, from my own poetry so obvious to me that he really wasn't it differently. And besides, I really wanted to write fiction. I've been afraid to write fiction, but after after that, I said, You know what? I'm gonna leave. Poetry to Paul and I'm going to really try to do this thing that's so terrifying and you did it. I did it out of the way. Gene also founded something called Book the writer, and It's a very unusual service. It offers pop up book groups where all the readers can talk about the books with the authors of these books and you still doing this Even during this pandemic, we are we are we pivoted. And for the first few months we were, you know. I've always done this in small groups in New York apartments. We have the author there and about 20 readers and everybody has had read the book and we would have these wonderful conversations. Really resisted putting them online. I thought, No, we'll just wait for this. But then everybody learned how to use technology and people got more comfortable with it and people. You know, my regulars were asking me, please, you know, put it online. We really need the connections. So beginning in September, we've had about a dozen group someone we had one last night with Mike Birbiglia, the comedian and to talk about his new memoir, the new one, and we had about 25 people. We had Mike and his wife gin, and we just had a wonderful conversation. So We're just finishing out the fall 2020 season and I'm about to announce the authors or winter and spring and I don't think we've ever had a list this fantastic. It's great..
Voice Developer Year in Review 2020: The Convergence of Voice and Chat
"That might actually be an interesting place to start. I was going to start with sort of the rise of mobile but it with We see this. Looks like a convergence of voice and text voice chat This year that seems just a little starker in fact sort of last holdout Or maybe one of the key holdouts has been amazon and they just introduced the chat feature within the alexa app. The mobile app and you know we. We had this idea for a long time that the conversation there's conversation could be taxed or could be voiced but we also i think all recognize that there are significant differences between the two. We did an extensive piece on that. I don't know about two two and a half years ago in an e book. Just around design but mike. Maybe i'll start with you. Just talk about this idea because you started out one hundred percent voice and have a lot of chat since joining more and more. I mean do you see this as convergence and if so. How's that going to be different than what we've seen in the past in terms of how people adopt both on the consumer side and the enterprise. Yeah absolutely see. There's a convergence. And i think at the end of the day. Let's say let's go back to customer support use case you wanna be wherever your customers are in your customers are going to be either using what's app or some kind of message or application. On their phone there can be using facebook messenger or they could have a smart speaker on their desk. They can have a smart speaker in their kitchen. And you wanna be able to be wherever they are So that if they have a question for you you're it's friction lists to get to you regardless of the channel and the medium so yes From technology point of view there are differences. But nothing that can't be handled with good tooling and design As far as bringing those together. What are some of those tech differences. So you know as you were. Starting to incorporate chat into was written a voice. I actually in many cases of voice only type of application stack that you're developing for people. What different types of technical tools did you have to do. Are you talking about microsoft bob framework incorporating that is back in and just talk talk about the the logical architecture the stack behind it and how. That's different yeah. So luckily google thought of this from the beginning. Where like they were. Both on the google assistant mobile and on the smart speaker. So if you wanted to be on google you would support and the way. It manifests itself is you have. You can do the sol. You can do the display tech's and for most cases they are going to be pretty much the same and you can just do simple like speak tag wrapper around display text But what you and this is where there is opportunity for tooling is like there are nuances in. And i i do see some tool start to emerge that are gonna make it easier. We're like how do you pronounce the date better and easier and more consistently Especially when you are going from different Text to speech engines to make sure that you can control that. So opportunity there for like Let's call it like preprocessing before you send it out to the actual text to speech injure the platform that's gonna take care of it for you. There's some good features out there existing for things like I know that Aws polly. They support things like lexicon and lexicon of been in the industry for a long time in that was an object or a that was required for telephony and it makes you pronounce the same thing consistently all the time so you actually define how things were pronounced hamburg. You don't see those supported in things like alexa yet or google assistant. They don't support these global pronunciation guide which elects economies
Diabetes Mellitus with Dr. Dennis Bruemmer
"Take hardy and hurts summit clear so excited for this installment of our cardiovascular prevention series with the deep dive into diabetes. Which i think you'll learn by the end of the episode is so important for us. Be attention to. We're joined by a phenomenal and true. Genuine in the field. Dr dennis brumer hughes. The director of the center for cardia met about health in the section of preventive cardiology and rehabilitation. At the cleveland clinic. Dr boomer earned his md and degrees from the university of hamburg in germany following residency training in internal medicine and cardiology in berlin docker boomer completed a research fellowship as the diabetes center fellow in the department at ucla. He is board certified in internal medicine and chronology hardy vascular disease and cardiac graffiti quite a unique combination. Dr boomers research is focused on mechanisms of atherosclerosis and risk factor intervention for the prevention of coronary artery disease soccer. It's such a pleasure to invite you to the show success. have you on. And as i invite you. I'm going to just reflect on your unique training path and we were just discussing before we started recording. Here that there's going to be a probably a lot of interest. In pursuing some sort of combined die batali cardiovascular education for court in the future. But would you mind just telling us how you got interested in really devoting yourself to cardio metabolic disease and diabetes in general. Absolutely am so first of all i. I'm super thrilled to be here. And i i'm so excited to be talking to the nerds here tonight so i. I think it's phenomenal. What you guys are doing and again. I very much appreciate the opportunity here so so i was. I'm kind of bridge between endocrinology in cardiology back in germany. I did my thesis. Actually in endocrinology lie protein metabolism. And that kind of got me interested in cardiology. I went to pursue cardiology training back in germany and then research fellowship at ucla. I was supposed to go back after that to germany. But i decided to stay and then obviously being a foreign Repeated training and i was always torn between the endocrine in preventive cardiology aspect than truecar ideologies. So i ultimately decided. I'm just gonna do both so. I did endocrinology fellowship and cardiologist fellowship by the university of kentucky. I had a phenomenal time. There and kind of still even now much of what we do in cardiology is really prevention. And that much of it. This endocrinology so i think these sub specialties really are complementary in or very closely together but let me say on behalf of everyone here at the clinic. How glad we are that. You decided not to go back and stayed here. Join us over here as a faculty because you've just added tremendous value to the program and you've been such an incredible resource for all of us. Thank you for being here. Yes dr burin. And i extend that thank you. Because you know you've stayed here. We are talking to the nerds. I think this is a totally fortunate. And i am really happy to benefit from your stay here now. We are very excited to dive into cardio dive tallahassee which begs the question dr boomer we are cardio nerds why should cardiologists focus on diabetes. I mean why not. Just refer are diabetic patients to endocrinologist or leave the to their primary care doctors. Yeah i think. I think that's kind of the common theme and that is the current care. We leave it to others in cardiology. Now i think that is sub optimal. I think we as cardiologists we see these patients all the time i mean when is ever a patient. In the cath. Lab that presents with an semi or stemming that doesn't have diabetes so we do see the far spectrum of this disease of cardiovascular complications that arise of having ama- diagnosis of diabetes. So i think we have to be involved in managing this. I think to a minimum. We should referred patients to primary care or make sure that the diabetes is. What managed or console endocrinology now as as we all know as physicians quite frequently. Not even that happens so and there's good evidence for that if you look at registries just about six percent of diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease actually get appropriate care for their diabetes and cardiovascular conditions as you know that vitas says associated with the two to four fold increase in risk it is a cardiovascular risk equivalent termed many many years ago seventy percent of our acute coronary syndrome patients have diabetes. So you you could argue. Yes we leave it to primary care but or the endocrinologist but keep in mind that endocrinologists currently see about five percent of the patient population with diabetes.
Atlanta-based Delta avoids US tariffs by sending new Airbus jets on a world tour
"Yeah, they're still happening. China, Of course. Also we have put import taxes on a bunch of European goods. French wine Scotch whisky, Also Airbus airplanes. But Delta Airlines, a buyer of the aforementioned Airbus's has been reading the tariff, fine print and it has been paying off, said Philip wrote the story for Bloomberg. Welcome to the program. Thank you, Kay. So in in layman's terms here if you could. What is Delta doing with these new planes? Yes. Oh, does that's doing something really interesting with the new plans and instead of usually flying them to the U. S, as they have in the past. What they've done instead is fly these planes overseas. Essentially if the plane has any hours and flight, aside from the delivery to the U. S, and testing that would make it a use plan and no longer subject of tariffs because the tariffs only applied new planes. Very tricky. You gotta know the laws. So give me an example. They Delta plunks down. However much money. It is for a new Airbus And it takes off and flies to wear and does what Sure. So take one plane example. The A 3 21. Delta bought a plane from ever US, which was built in Hamburg. The plane flew from Hamburg to El Salvador. It stayed there for over two weeks. And then from there, it flew to the Cayman Islands and then a chance. Atlanta and, most recently, that plane's been flying between Atlanta and Montego Bay, and it has shaved the company. How much money would you guess? So based on the list prices of the aircraft it could have saved as much as 270 million, although airlines don't actually pay the list price for planes, and so the true savings could be much smaller than that, given that most airlines get massive discounts on new plane purchases, But still, Delta has decided it's worth it to go through this goat rope just to not have to pay. However many millions even single digit millions of dollars. It isn't Paris. Absolutely. I mean, the U. S. Has collected over $55 million in tariffs in the last one year or source and said Arabs came in what I hear you saying is that other airlines are not doing what Delta is doing. And they are paying that there's Yeah, that would seem like it. It would seem like those airlines are being charged with tariffs. We should be clear to. This is 100% legal, right? I mean Delta's going by the letter of the law. Absolutely. I mean, the entire strategy rests on the language that classifies the plane as you was once they've flown for any reason other than for testing and delivery. Even as clever as it might be. And as money saving, as it might be. There is some institutional inertia and some inefficiencies that Delta is dealing with here, right? Absolutely. I mean, the fact that they wouldn't really be able to import those plane directly into the US and obviously, that means you have to sort of find places for those planes. In the meantime, it does have some impact on the efficiency. But then remember that you have the covert crisis of the moment. And that sort of helps because you don't need so many plans at the moment, given the fact that there's so many plans that on the ground at the moment, and airlines are trying everything that they can to save money, so this is one sort of tool in the arsenal. Said.

Founder of Dr. Sturm Skincare, Dr. Barbara Sturm
"So you grew up in East Germany like. Yes. Wow. How was that? What was that like? Does it seem like a distant memory now? Yeah. Because you know damned forty eight now but definitely you grew up in a in an environment where boggles matter friendship breeding matters inability matters no way that you can rely on on friends and. Thanks, you need a life. So I think it's a good upbringing. That's for sure. What do you think was most formative of childhood that you can kind of say that's why I am who I am today. You know I, think you entire life makes you the person you're obviously also what your parents teach you and what your parents live like and my parents from very much teaching ons too key both feet on the ground and. Always be kind respectful to other people no matter who they are and. That is something which you know. I think up to today by value by doing so. And I grew up like this and I guess out. So when you don't have a when you don't draw in extreme luxury, you know when you grow up just a few things, you become very creative and you resourceful intonations and. Keep. Going for the things you want I think that's also something. which gets less and less this society because the children for today pretty much everything from the board. I think it's a different generation. What is the most quintessentially? German thing about you I used to be always on time I'm pretty much on time still. One point it's very German, and so I think I'm sending for quantity and technology in science i. think that is something very German. I remember that Carly member we went on that navy press trip to Hamburg and it was to the second yeah. Yeah we were like Oh, my God, we gotta get to the lobby like. And then German. The wet lead you to get into medical school and you know decide you wanted to take that path. My mother was a lead doctor and she took me to the hospital. When I was a kid, you know to go on visit patients and stuff. So I got into this Medicare idea very early when it was four years already decided I won't be a doctor himself. And never changed. You know to score studied medicine. And I came Dr Early on i. read that when you were in medical school you you're also a young mum and a single mom at that time, and so that couldn't have been easy. Maybe not a lot of people know that part of your story. So was there a particular mantra at that time and you're juggling so much like what helped? You get through through that time. So I was mother was twenty three and I just had done my first big step in medical school and gratefully at that time as their had my mom to help me a lot with my kids but I, think it's just you know you go step by step I think one of my mantras really to take things. Don't look too much out what's going on in the future because then you definitely get around. So step by step and put a checkmark behind everything in Italic Sawed. So with having tried and going to school and do all these days are just doing them. Moving forward, I think that helps you know not stress about future. Just get it done and you become a manager yourself because you have to keep all the balls in the at the same time I'm really good at this now. and. So you became a medical doctor in the field of orthopedics. How did you meet the late great? Koby Bryant. So so I came into other pigs by chance originally wanted to get into pediatrician because at my chide I couldn't see the kids suffering. So I decided okay. 'cause also studied sports, parents, medicines. I win the peaks to do my doctor studied there and I like all the peaks but I was also interested in aesthetics and I had to wait for to get a place in the clinic I wanted to start working and I had to wait half year in this year I decided to go. clinic and then I loved you know working in science so much. Stayed there and didn't go to Tadic's pedic's than I did later but I stayed there pioneering this treatment, we the proteins from God's and decreed cometary proteins to stop the inflammation and the aging process in the joins and we had so many people coming for treatments from everywhere from the word courts, people and people with joint problems in Australia tried is in you know. So we got to meet a lot of people. Not just you know sports
