"He doesn't there's enough evidence for vanna syndrome to qualify as a mass psychogenic illness. This term carries some troubling connotations. I personally don't use the word psychogenic because it suggests that the problem is all psychological When patients hear the word psychogenic. They think that's dr accusing me of imagining my symptoms of making them up but douglas smith the pen neurologist. Who examined the havana syndrome patients. He says that regardless of the explanation the suggestion that there may have been no attack. It's been difficult for patients. There became a debate out there from outside experts quote unquote who really upset the patients by just being absolutely certain that this was kind of a mass like a genetic illness or some other psychological issue and they caused a lot of stress to these patients who felt they had a crazy story. So who's going to believe in the beginning with douglas. His team actually included tests specifically designed to show. That havana syndrome wasn't just psychological. We had the equivalent of that jerk test. You know i tracking movements in your eyes converge as you move an object closer to the middle of your knows.

"Back in november of twenty eighteen published an episode titled those weird cuban attacks. It was about what's now commonly referred to as havana syndrome. Though it would appear the biden administration is trying to get away from that name. There apparently calling them unexplained health incidents or uh is now because there's still a lot of mystery surrounding what exactly is going on here and whatever is happening is no longer limited to just this week. The pentagon asked all of its military personnel civilian officials and contractors to report any health issues similar to what diplomats and cia officers. I experienced in havana years later. They're still trying to figure out. What exactly is going on. As is vox unexplainable podcast today. We're bringing you a recent episode of there's tackling event syndrome. Uh is or those weird attacks on diplomats also other people. Whatever you wanna call it you can find unexplainable wherever you find. Today explained here. Is that episode think unexplainable. I'm no i'm hassenfeld. Remember a few years ago. When those invisible attacks were messing with us diplomats in cuba the trump administration announced that it is pulling more than half of its staff out of the american embassy in havana..

"Over. Imagining my symptoms or making them up but douglas smith the pen neurologist. Who examined the havana syndrome patients. He says that regardless of the explanation the suggestion that there may have been no attack. It's been difficult for patients. There became a debate out there from outside experts quote unquote who really upset the patients by just being absolutely certain that this was kind of a mass psychogenic illness or some other psychological issue and they call us a lot of stress to these patients. Who felt that crazy story. So who's going to believe in the begin with douglas. His team actually included tests specifically designed to show. That havana syndrome wasn't just psychological. We had the equivalent of that nature test. You know eye tracking an eye movements in how your eyes converge as you move an object closer to the middle of your knows. Somebody can't fake these evening of a psychological. You can't create these types of neurological symptoms just out of thin air and the team later. Supported these tests with functional. Mri results we selected a mri sequence. That takes a look at the connectivity of the brain and the areas that had loss of connectivity could account for the neurological symptoms that the patients displayed. But john says the still doesn't rule out a functional disorder. I agree with him. But one concede changes in the brain. And we'll start to see changes on testing. But that's the case with functional disorders as well we may just need to rethink this seemingly hard division between what's neurological and what psychological neurological and psychological referred to the same organ. And this is why. It's so hard thing to report these things or help. People get their head around because everything is telling us that. There are these two categories when i think neuroscience is telling us that there aren't these are disorders that actually forcing us to have a whole new way of thinking about what is the brain. One is the mind think of phantom leg syndrome for example. A soldier has the leg amputated but the brain still believes it to be there and they experienced very distressing phantoms of limb. being there. it's painful is out psychological problem. You wouldn't necessarily say so you would say well that's kind of brain problem and in a sense. A functional disorder is kinda like reverse phantom limb syndrome. The brain is functioning. Like something's wrong even when nothing is. Structurally wrong but when it comes to applying this idea to havana syndrome. It's just a hypothesis. It's very different from actually examining patients. The only people were saying that this is primarily a psychological issue are people who have never examined the patients university of pennsylvania neurologist. Douglas smith again individuals who examined the patients believe that. This is a neurological issue. People from the outside feel very confident in their diagnosis. A patient who had never seen. I've never met any of these patients with havana syndrome. I do not know what they have. My only interest in this is the i see functional disorders being thoroughly misrepresented. I completely understand what he's saying in front of him or patients with genuine conditions. But that is not reason to dismiss the possibility of functional disorders playing at least upon what's happening a functional disorders genuine disorder just as much as a brain injury. I see this all the time in my clinical practice. So i see people who have had minor head injuries. They had concussion symptoms for while and then they gradually get worse because they develop a functional disorder and it becomes very harmful to them if they're caught in the medical system is telling them this is all brain damage now. It's very validating for the patient. But if they do have a functional disorder. It's potentially very harmful because you'll denying them. The opportunity to consider treatment of their condition through other means now thinking of havana syndrome is a functional disorder. Could mean that. It wasn't caused by an outside energy source but at the same time it doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility john is still open to the idea that an energy source could be part of the equation. Here perhaps there is a soulmate weapon. If someone said has been built in. it's possible to direct it. I would absolutely accept that but even if there is a summit weapon is it the case that some people had a sonic attack that affected their brain and then they approved again whereas other people gradually got worse because they developed a functional disorder. These a scientific hypotheses to be tested without dismissing out of hand because of someone's prejudice about functional disorders. Last idea that havana syndrome could have been caused by an initial energy source and then it could have become chronic because of a functional disorder. John not the only ones suggesting it in late. Twenty twenty the national academies of sciences put out a report along the same lines but still they equivocated and they said that other causes couldn't be ruled out because the truth is that right now. They're still no way to definitively say what happened to these patients. We can rely on imaging to an extent but even that requires interpretation. And that's largely because the brain is just absurdly ridiculously complicated. So in the end we're left with a pretty giant unknown here. We can locate that unknown outside the brain but we can also locate it within the brain itself. I don't understand how my brain works. i don't understand how i do. Anything science journalist. Dan hurley again. Nobody understands how our brain works. He's only slightly exaggerating. How does your brain right now. Create the impression that you are here that this is your body that that's the clock on the wall. You.

All the worry all the pain of an ailment commonly known as unexplainable from the vox media podcast network unexplainable. We're back. We've been hearing about havana syndrome. This mysterious condition that's affected about two hundred diplomats around the world patients are still suffering and scientists haven't been able to come to a consensus on. What kind of energy source could cause this syndrome. But there's another possible theory havana. Syndrome could be an example of something called functional disorder. These kinds of disorders are just beginning to be understood. Because they don't usually involve observable structural damage in the brain a functional disorder is less about how the brain looks than about how it works.

"In two thousand eighteen. Douglas and his team at penn published a study which found that these government officials did appear to have sustained brain injuries. But they didn't know what could have caused them. The team left that open. Claiming the symptoms were due to a quote unknown energy source associated with auditory sensory phenomena. Meanwhile the us government seemed split on how to refer to the episodes while some called them incidents others like former secretary of state. Rex tillerson started calling them attacks. We hold them. Cuban authorities responsible for finding out who is carrying out the health packs. Not just our diplomats. But as you're seeing now there are other cases with other diplomats. The us ended up withdrawing most of its staff from the cuban embassy but more and more incidents kept being reported. This time outside of cuba. I it was in moscow in invisible attack in a moscow hotel. Ben it was in china abnormal sound left a consulate worker with a mild brain injury. It was in australia to senior. See i. I have been attacked in washington dc on the national mall. They want to turn now to a mystery right here. In the nation's capital the reports kept on coming. It's been reported in poland. London and taiwan. And even this past summer. There were incidents in vienna so this a big issue for the austrian authorities and clearly for the united states. Next thing you know it's nbc the new york times sixty minutes science journalist dan hurley again. They're all saying. Americans are being attacked and scott pelley tonight on sixty minutes in his classic signature. Rumble i'm scott. Pelley on scott kelly. There appears to be a hostile foreign governments plan to target americans serving abroad and their families at first the. Us blamed cuba the cubans. Were saying we don't even know what you're talking about. This is not us then the. Us blamed the russians. They blamed the chinese but incidents have continued to be reported as of now. It's up to around two hundred people but you know the truth is there's no evidence of any foreign government being involved. Is there any type of sonic weapon. That could do this. Like could cicadas be be weaponized. No not done no no so there. Is this strange effect. That's called the fray effect back in the sixties a scientist named allan fray found that microwaves aimed at the head could cause a clicking sound. You had to be in a very quiet room to even notice it. But the fray effect cannot cause brain damage. It's just something people grabbed on one of the engineers. I spoke to who did a study of the fray effect kenneth foster professor of bioengineering. He said the kind of effect that is being talked about With the embassy is truly a theory tale. He said you might as well be talking about little green men from mars throwing darts of energy. I can't conceal the microwave weapon as being thought about in this case no one is measured. Microwaves in the embassy. As far as i know it's just purely speculation. there's anything at all logging. Microwaves in this case. And if you take that low level of energy that gets you the fray effect and just turn it up a lot. Could that be a possible. Cause here like shoot a lot of microwaves. So there's something else. Called an active denial system which the us government the military has used to disperse a crowd. It's called millimeter waves instead of. Microwaves it's ninety five gigahertz instead of two and a half gigahertz okay. So like higher frequency than microwaves. Yeah and it only goes skin deep So it makes you feel like you've got a burning sensation on your skin. And it's never been known to any sounds or to cause chronic brain damage. What if you did this. With actual microwaves and not millimeter waves. Well that would be exactly like climbing inside a microwave oven and it wouldn't be something that they hear a noise and go. Gee what's that no it would be like getting microwave. It heats up your body and it would be a painful experience okay. outside of microwaves or millimeter waves. Are there any other possible. Causes here ultrasound. And that i guess is is very high pitched frequencies. Yes now apparently if you took an ultrasound generator and you put it in a bucket of water you could make little bubbles appear and i talked to timothy layton. Who's a professor of ultra sonics. And he told me you know if you send it through the air you'll never get that effect you know with the pregnant woman. The reason they use the slippery gel is you can't have an air gap so essentially the idea here is that you couldn't get this effect from faraway right. Someone would have to sneak up behind them and touch them with an ultrasound machine or something. Yeah you know. What layton said was we have no evidence and no theories of how it could do that and he said the idea of some kind of secret ultrasonic death ray going through the air to hit you. It's nonsensical and that's a quote and one of the key. Things is even if you got a concussion. It is unusual for people to develop chronic long-term sickness from that and yet most of the people with this syndrome do seem to have chronic symptoms mean. It just doesn't fit with what's known about mild traumatic brain injuries. None of it makes sense by any physical means to this day. Neither pen doctors who examined the patients nor other experts have been able to point to a definitive cause for venison drum but some scientists have claimed that certain high frequency radio waves could be conceivable possibility. The science is far from resolved. But dan is one of many people who think there could be another option here. There is a simple explanation that is entirely consistent with what neurologist. No and nobody wants to believe it. That's after the break..

This bird has a point of view. anyway back to having a center so so they would have the sound and then they would have this pressure and then some of these neurological symptoms that i describe are pretty similar although some had more severe issues than others and for some persisted much longer whereas for others it was very transient right. So like kind of a range in terms of that the cia and the state department as these individuals started coming forward and kind of reporting to their bosses. They're spear officers.

You have to understand like this is the end of twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen trump has just been elected president and then assumes the president this guy again. Yeah talk about this. It's going to be a long time before we get all that plus castro had just died in late. Two thousand sixteen right soon after the american election I wasn't aware of that.

So nobody knew what this meant for.

"Centrum in the move from their current call it that My apologies to havana recently. It was reported that vice president kamala harris had her she had. She's doing an overseas trip and it was briefly delayed. Just like there was a pause. It was like a couple hours so not a big incident in the grand scheme of things for the vice president but the reason that it was delayed is a little more interesting. There were some what were reported as anomalous health incidents that occurred in hanoi which is where she was headed from singapore and so because of these incidents they pause the trip decided there was no concern for the vice president or any per staff. It did not affect anyone associated with the vice president and so she continued on her trip But because of that havana syndrome was putting the news and trending. And now here. we are Because i had no idea what it was. I'd never heard of it. I never heard of the phrase so it only dates back to twenty sixteen. That's why i feel. It feels weird to me that i'm not aware of this because it has all happened in recent years and there was a lot of i think media coverage of it initially. Perhaps it seems like so in twenty sixteen. There was a diplomat at the american embassy in cuba. Who had an odd health incident. Okay it occurred when she was actually in her home. Not in the embassy itself but in her home there in havana and she was standing in her kitchen and she began to experience. This severe headache and pressure in her head. A lot of these descriptions will sound like waves of pressure She didn't think much of it tried to a headache. I'll sleep it off But the next morning it was still there and she also began to have some memory issues some vertigo balance type issues. Some trouble walking and like sort of processing information like she. She mentioned she couldn't read a cereal box that morning. Like the back of cereal box. Oh these sorts of nonspecific. You know very Upsetting symptoms but not really pointing to one specific thing. The symptoms persisted. But she didn't tell anybody at first because she didn't she liked her job she gets home An but she would eventually learned that she was not alone because around the same time period. Three cia officers in cuba would have similar symptoms It and this is all towards the end of two thousand sixteen and into twenty seventeen And they would send a couple of people would go back to the us. And they sent a couple replacements. A officers who also had these symptoms right Many tended to describe this in a in a similar sort of progression. You have some sort of pressure. Like i said some people said it was like oh like waves pressure in your head or just an intense pressure in your head but Many said that right before that started. They also had a like an auditory symptom. Meaning they heard something. They heard a very strange sound. And the sound was described. Sometimes like machine like like a grinding type of of course sound a rough sound other people described it. like a buzzing like cicadas. It was compared to like a bunch of crickets or cicadas or something like that. several times. that horrible bird.

Mike Sanders has more details. The scientists flew by helicopter to what they thought was Kodak Island to collect samples, no great excitement there. That tiny outcrop has been known about since 1978 but when they checked their position with the Danish official in charge of registering Arctic islands There were 800 M further north.

"Is it my voice. Yeah it's kinda brown note to it. You don't say you don't say brown. What's what's brown. Not exactly what. We name the episode. It's the havana syndrome. Calling the brown. Note it's not what they're calling it. It's actually what it is so that frequency of sound like doing whatever it's doing is it. Allegedly elizabeth feels like lyme disease a little bit. Doesn't it do you have it. I don't know we talked about this a few years ago on the show in this first happened in guba where my spanish friends out there. You're welcome for proper pronunciation. Guba that i just gave you But in kouba our embassy members in there yeah they heard a sound or they didn't hear sound just went into their minds. That's the weird part about this question. Yeah do they hear it. No experiencing the symptom throw up. And then i think you have an all sixers that what you call the sixer. Oh you go number six. I are you going to full six four six on this one and the guys do a seven. Yeah what's the set with the seventh day. Come okay cool. but you. Women don't have seven period. Knows that's still a six okay. Both sexes can bleed. Got it from different places. Sure so that we add in there. The guys can come. Girls can do. The milwaukee milkshakes so they also have a breast milk component. That you guys don't Ghana technically everyone can do a seven. But just unless you're lactating duty mean girls are six or seven. You don't think you can just lactate later on in life. You know you can be up to keep it going if a weird moment or a sound like this. Hits you weird rights. If you got the havana syndrome and breast milk. Shot out of your body. Would you be shocked by that. Are you would okay. okay. I don't know and that's why i'm asking. Yes so you're welcome for that. Do you know about the havana. Here's here's what i know. I think i one hundred percents. This is real and there's been a lot of debate over the years of whether or not this is real and you can have these. Sonic sounds that would cause you to experience this type of thing. Some people claim that this is a conspiracy. Some people claim that it's real those people because they were interviewed on sixty minutes. They were super fucked up in a couple of mersal fucked up to this day from the havana incident. Right now. this one involved a vice president going over to she was in. Singapore headed over to vietnam to over. Hanoi i one hundred percent think that this is a real thing i think it's i think it's the next wave of technology if we can do it for dogs. Why couldn't we do this for humans. I think it's actually proven that they do do it though. It has not been proven yet. So that's the whole thing behind this so even with this with his incidents they're not even calling it by the havana's syndrome. Or whatever all the statement says this. And i'll read it word for word here early this evening. The vice president's traveling delegation was delayed from departing singapore. Because the vice president's office was made aware of a report of a recent possible anomalous health incidents in hanoi vietnam after careful assessments. The decision was made to continue with the vice president's trip. The delegation will leave. Singapore tonight arrive in hanoi vietnam. So they're not naming any of this by name or anything else. This is pure speculation at this point. This has been a leak of some sort. That just says the reason. Why isn't because of cova. Because when you read this statement word for word this sounds like a kovic to me where it was like all right somebody may or may not have covert when you're using the exact phrase of health incident in today's world that means covert nuts brown sound brown note or whatever the fuck is right like brown. Sand is my podcast. So brown sounds is gonna be your practice. But that's what gives me hesitation of this of like. Oh all right well. Are we ever going to say this is a real thing and we're not going to say this is a real thing because this is going to be. This might be a heavy conspiracy episode. I don't really do conspiracies this. I actually happen to believe in. And i think this is real now. Obviously when this happened in havana. Cuba jesse i. Where did they denied it. The government tonight. It's and they were saying it was coming from. Russia had originated in russia by using these sound frequencies to do this type of shit to people whatever rights. They've everyone has denied this so far. Which obviously makes me think that it's real and i. I think it's a smart. I think it's smart effective way to paralyze people not fucking get into an all out. War shocks me. I guess is. Why is this happening. More and like battlefields and shit. So for instance a hemp lay jacobs with with what's going on in afghanistan now like gave all of our troops and some citizens earplugs or whatever the fuck it was could prevent this. Can you knew the other side with these sound waves and then be done with. It is a more effective way of war. Or let's say riots. For example i mean instead of using nina ak rubber bullets. Would you ever deploy this and be like well trying to play the sound really loud to the fucking thing all of our police officers and everybody in in riot gears already prepared for this. They've got their headphones on. Fuck this there are acoustic weapons that they use on crowd control and stuff. What are they Just google. They're basically like sound cannons. Oh come and they deliver loud. Sounds over long distances. It's used for crowd control. It's just noise. it's so this is something you would hear. You would actually here and it would drop you this. Yeah right so in the video game like scenario that you're describing it wouldn't happen right away so it's not like they dr- i mean. It looks like they develop this these symptoms after it happens.

People Across Florida Are Marching in Solidarity With Cuba

"I think this is the beginning of a a movement in which Cubans have said enough is enough. Cubans have reached a breaking point inside the Communist island and right here in Florida, Scott hunger, health, anxiety and anger spilling over into one another, opening the floodgates of a decades long oppression and emotion. Protests and rallies have popped up all over Florida and support of Cuba and its people. Here's reporter Alexa Lorenzo. This is something that was spontaneous. We've never seen that Dr Luis Martinez Fernandez was born in Havana, a history professor now at U. C. F. He knows well, what's playing out on the island. What the government does is it unleashes these violent fanatics to beat up Cubans who are basically asking for a universal right to protest piece. Fully the communist government has arrested hundreds of protesters restricted Internet access in Cuba, showing you the dictatorship that has dominated for decades. But the question is what's next here? And what is the U. S government doing about it? Where all these people that promise about human rights? Meanwhile, 90 miles from our coastline, human rights get trampled on every day. That's why Cuban Americans in Florida like Alberto Sarmiento are protesting. His father and grandparents fled for freedom, and he wants American politicians to do more to protect the people on the island. We need action in Cuba. Now. U. S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban American has been a staunch opponent of the Cuban government, taking to social media and writing a letter to President Joe Biden, giving him six steps to take a horrific bloodbath is what awaits if action is not taken something like that does not happen. Senator Rubio also tweeting images of that show Cuban military and police. Barging into homes and detaining

"Emily. Bray is a film that follows primarily to surfers in cuba. And you learn about what it takes to be a surfer in cuba and you also follow them as they try and take steps to legalize the sport in their country and the journey takes them ultimately all over the world. but most of what's important is right there in cuba even though the story is about cubans with a particular passion seeing aluminum for me. It was felt like an opportunity to see cuba after so many years of not being on the island of seeing people cubans going about their daily lives. I assume that you are not in any way shape or form. Latin american or cuban for that matter. So how did you end up landing on the story. How did you get to cuba. How did this happen gory. Speaking you are correct in your assumption that we are not latin american and when we began the film. We didn't speak any spanish at all. I'd always had a fascination with cuba. Just because it's such a mysterious place to people outside the island. So i had the opportunity to travel there quite briefly and in that time i met both of our main characters in the film franken and they sort of welcomed me in as a friend and started to explain to me what surfing was like there and it was really just kind of just like exchange of know things that made us excited and by the end of it left. Cuba was like this is incredible. I had no idea that this scene existed here. And you know you spend so much of your time looking at the cuba that is sort of stereotypical and said he gets some insight into something that you just don't know exists in a place that you know.

They're going to continue to monitor the track. It's going to start passing over Cuba today and once it gets on the other side of Cuba will have an even better idea of what the track looks like. The Santa says he's revising state of emergency orders in a number of counties that will look to be out of the storm's path, including Miami Dade, DeSoto and Hardee, but notes that more counties should be added to that list as the storm approaches

Your Next Dive - Key Largo

"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.

"Would have no more surprises. Well, the world's oldest DNA's samples say otherwise, to mammoth molars pulled from the permafrost in north eastern Siberia contained didna dating back to more than a million years ago. It's a big leap backwards in time that that's which was Luca Dillon is at the center for Paleo Genetics in Stockholm. And he says this mammoth DNI is twice as old as the previous record holder, which came from an ancient horse now sequencing million year old knee like this was impossible just a few years ago samples that old were just too small to work with. Now, researchers can see incredibly small samples, but it's challenging to put them together. Tom Vander Vault also works with the center for Paleo Genetics. Imagine if you're Edna is fragment that into literally millions of tiny pieces. It is a painstaking puzzle. It's not only one parcel, it's actually multiple parcels. So imagine you know you have one parcel for the malice genome. But then you have another parcel for the whole bacterial content of the examples. You have another possible for the human Dina for the paleontologists and us in the lab. Once they had finished sorting out the mammoth bits. The DNI gave the scientists a unique window into mammoth evolution. Delenn says the standard view holds there was only one mammoth species in Siberia a couple million years ago. What we find now is that actually we found two different lineages. We can't really say there are different species, but they're clearly two different genetic types of malice so that that came as a complete surprise to us. The ancient DNI. A also gives clues the origins of the Columbian mammoth, which lived in North and Central America. Here's Tom Vander Volk again Good kind of show that this Columbia moment is a hybrid species between two off the genetic lineages. So one is the new general image that we found in this paper. And the other is the Willie Mama genetic limit, So to say their work appears today in the journal Nature. Alfred Rocca of the University of Illinois at Havana.

Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program

"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet.

We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U.

It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War.

It'll be led by homeland security secretary a hundred my orcas who was confirmed tuesday by the senate as the first latin necks and immigrant to lead the department. Arcus was born in havana. Cuba is the son of jewish. Cuban refugees from the holocaust biden also ordered a review of the trump policy known as remain in mexico that requires non mexican migrants to stay in. Mexico is their immigration cases wine through court and has left tens of thousands of asylum seekers waiting in dangerous conditions along the border. This is asylum. Seeker marlins speaking to the advocacy group. People without borders boy both in front tariffs about facing homelessness with their family after being sent to mexico most vividly remember when we arrived to the immigration office mexico. They didn't give us a place to sleep or anything to eat. Our children's slept on the floor. That night this comes as immigration and customs enforcement. Ice has deported. Hundreds of immigrants in recent days despite biden's coal for moratorium including a survivor of the two thousand nine thousand nine hundred mass shooting at the el paso texas walmart.

We welcome you both to democracy now auto. let's begin with you. Can you explain what's going on. You have these executive actions that are extremely important including one that calls for a halt to deportations. This is the president of the united states and yet hundreds of people have been deported under this new administration. What is going on having me amy. What we're seeing is quite a departure from the previous administration. I don't want a discount. The importance appearances the importance of the way that the president of this country talks about in human being including people who may be detained or deported. we're also seeing a lot of really great language and the commission of a task force Another order to suspend deportations and yet we see a continuation of the same practices that happened under president trump previously endure obama. And i do think that there's a difference. There's absolutely a difference in tone but what we're seeing is for example with the commission of the tasks worse receiving. Dha outing which is at the same agency that separated children at the border. Now tasked with figuring out where where. These families aren't so little unclear. What will happen after that. And i think that a lot of people that have been talking to in in the last day or so since the executive orders announced it doesn't really go far enough and also sets a commission in in some cases a task force for something that allowed people voted on the biden ticket as sort of stood against all of that stood against those families operations to the that we now need a task force to figure out how to move forward with having something in place when by also has the house and the senate of rings hollow from people. Erica i wanted to ask you about your clients. Alvero and his son alvarado junior who just turned nine years old. The little boy said all he wants for his birthday is to be reunited with his father. They've been separated since he was six years old. This is auto speaking to nbc news about the day. The two were separated. An officer told me. Give me your children's things because you are going to different places. And i didn't know what was going to happen to my child. So erica pineyro if you can talk about among the executive orders are this issue of separation. The hundreds over six hundred children still left. It's believed Separated from their parents. In some cases the administration doesn't even know where the parents are in hundreds of cases. They may well be in the united states and another few hundred they may be outside the united states but i mean clearly biden is put a top priority on this because the people serving on this committee or the secretary of homeland security. My arcus just confirmed the secretary of health and human services the former attorney general of california bestseller and the attorney general yet to be confirmed and first lady joe biden.

Study finds diplomats in Cuba likely targeted by microwave energy

"Government study finds the so called Havana syndrome was probably caused by directed microwave energy. The report on the neurological problems that American diplomats and CIA agents in China and Cuba suffered doesn't say that a weapon was used to deliver the energy intentionally. But NBC News, which obtained a copy of the report said it does raise that possibility. Scientists at the national Academies of Sciences say medical evidence shows the problems the 40 Americans reported are consistent. With the effects of microwave energy. That's what the American intelligence community has been saying all along.

"The idea of an unknown energy source, being the cause was met with scepticism almost immediately, a group of scientists wrote criticism of the results and suggested that it was likely a case of mass hysteria. Apparently, the symptoms exhibited by the victims were the same as individuals who had suffered from mass hysteria in the past namely headaches, dizziness, nausea, abdominal pain, coughs, fatigue and sore throats. These symptoms were also too broad to indicate a specific attack. The Chief Editor of the Scientific Journal cortex Sergio Della Sala took issue with the low bar set for what constituted a symptom of Havana Syndrome. For instance one in six Americans report experiencing tonight us or ringing in their ears. Many things can cause tonight us and Della. Sala couldn't justify the leap from this relatively common ailment to politically motivated attack. Especially when that came from something as vague as an unknown energy source, if the State Department had investigated any group of people off the street, chances are, they would find evidence of tonight is let alone in a high stress environment. Unfortunately even medical experts don't always recognize psychosomatic illnesses. For, instance, a two thousand fifteen report in The Guardian newspaper profiled a woman who experienced blindness caused by stress. It took doctors, months and dozens of sometimes painful tests to figure it out. Psychosomatic illnesses are so hard to diagnose because typically they can only be confirmed by eliminating. Potential 'CAUSE I. Robert Bartholomew, a medical sociologist, and one of the leading experts on psychosomatic illnesses, spoke to vanity, fair at length about the disorders. He said it was best to understand them as a placebo effect in reverse, you can often make yourself feel better by taking a sugar pill. You can also make yourself feel sick if you think you're becoming sick. Bartholomew also called the data published in the original Jama study too unclear to be taken seriously. Like Sergio Della, Sala he claimed the parameters for affliction were so broad that anyone could have derived whatever outcome they wanted from the results meaning. If they want the results to show that a devastating electromagnetic weapon was being used, they could make that happen. But the symptoms weren't all mental. The JEMMA study suggested that they had found physical damage in the inner ear of Havana Syndrome victims. It was one of the pieces of evidence that leads some to believe that a sonic weapon had been used. However, the damage may have been present before the individuals were ever assigned to their Cuban Post. Sergio. Della Sala further criticized that the Jama paper only gave a statement filled with claims that patients had self reported. There was no way to tell when that damage had occurred. Furthermore the paper didn't include any concrete evidence. Measurable data or statistics in Fact Del Asala claimed that the study would not have been published by most respected neuropsychologist outlets. Backing up the idea that the Havana syndrome symptoms derived from mass hysteria, medical sociologist Robert Bartholomew pointed out that large-scale psychosomatic disorders are fairly common for example in two thousand eleven, twenty students at Leroy High School in new. York, suddenly developed symptoms such as speech impediments and muscle twitches. The symptoms left the community wondering what was happening. Many of the students parents believed that the ailment was caused by something in the schools drinking water. But after closer examination, it was found to be a case of mass hysteria. Many of the victims were members of the school's cheerleading team in psychologist determined that social media was causing an abnormal amount of stress. The stress moved like a contagion between the tight knit group. Fortunately deal. NECE went away within weeks of being treated by psychologists, the victims from Roy high school return to normal life, and these types of problems don't just occur in high school hallways. Of the. Cited examples of a psychogenic disorder is known as Shell Shock. Doctors I coined the phrase to Describe Group of symptoms suffered by soldiers in World War One. They develop nervous tics, tremors, nightmares, even impaired sight and hearing the symptoms were typical for survivors of bomb raids, but soldiers who had never been near an explosion also experienced the same symptoms. Eventually scientists determined that Shell shock was caused by the general trauma of their surroundings. The soldiers didn't need to be near the bomb raids to share their comrades symptoms. And like with Vanna Syndrome shell shocked soldiers showed concussion like symptoms. As it turns out the best way to treat have Vanna. Syndrome may have been to tell the patient that sonic weapons were never used on them. Over time, and with a bit of relaxation, their symptoms might have faded. It's now widely accepted that the recording released by the associated. Press was in fact, the sound of crickets. Since the initial outbreak between late, two, thousand, sixteen and two thousand eighteen, there have been no more documented cases of the mysterious affliction. Just as suddenly as it arrived, the Havana Syndrome disappeared. It's possible that it was all in the victims heads. They're imagined. Enemy was implanted by the ones who claim to be their allies, the scientists and politicians supposedly working to the truth. Regardless of the cause, we can confidently say that fear is one of the most powerful forces unearth. Like infra, sound, microwaves and bombs. Fear can be weaponized..

"In your home, some skeptics worried that it simply emanated high powered microwaves. But instead of heating up a can of soup, the eighty s essentially cooked human skin. It caused intense pain, but theoretically created no long-term. As, the waves were supposedly shorter and at a higher frequency than true microwaves. If the ADS lived up to its billing, it could be a powerful means of crowd control. In the summer of two thousand ten, the active denial systems were mounted on top of Humvees and deployed for two months in Afghanistan. To the American military's dismay, the potential benefits of the device were outweighed by the negative perception of its use, and the systems were recalled before they ever saw combat, but perhaps somewhat else found a way to improve upon this technology. Dr Douglas H Smith One of the leads on the two thousand Eighteen Journal of the American Medical Association Report on the Abana Syndrome believed that microwaves might have caused the US diplomats confounding symptoms. As evidence Dr Smith, cited something called the FRY effect. In the nineteen sixties, a neuroscientist at Cornell University Allan H fry, conducted experiments on the effects of different radar systems. He found that his test subjects could hear phantom sounds during microwave testing. If he pointed a microwave transmitter in a subjects direction, they often hear inexplicable noises. The transmitters distance didn't matter. It could be a few inches or hundreds of feet away. According to FRY, microwaves don't make sounds, but the human brain can perceive sound when it comes into contact with them, which would explain why the diplomats heard bizarre metallic sounds before experiencing the Havana's syndrome. And unlike Infra Sonics microwaves can be focused into narrow beams at high levels. Microwaves can even cause concussion like effects in the brain. And yet not every researcher or scientist was convinced that microwaves were behind the Havana Syndrome. According to the microwave theory's detractors, it was entirely hypothetical. No one has ever been able to replicate similar symptoms to the Havana Syndrome with microwaves. Although the ADS deployed in Afghanistan was arguably a microwave weapon. It's affects didn't match the same symptoms of Havana Syndrome. Burning skin is a far cry from memory loss nausea. To date no weapon or energy source has been found that matches the symptoms that the US. Diplomats experienced in Cuba and it might be because there wasn't any weapon. List not in the conventional sense after the Associated Press, released an audio recording of one of the alleged sonic attacks, perceptions start to shift. Some concluded that the cause of Havana Syndrome might be biological in nature. Coming up could Havana Syndrome have? been caused by insects. High listeners.

Just when it seemed, an answer would never come. To, press released a recording of the alleged attack on US embassy workers in Havana. It was a potential breakthrough in this seemingly unsolvable mystery. The unusual sounds on the recording happened intervals some lasted just a few seconds. Others lasted several minutes. Each burst of sound was followed by about of silence. There didn't appear to be a pattern to any of it. But. The seeming randomness didn't dissuade experts from weighing in on the recording. In fact they determined that whatever was making. The noise wasn't a single sound. There were more than twenty. Different unique frequencies found recording.

Kevin Fu, an electrical engineering and computer science professor at the University of Michigan proposed that the sound could actually be interference to devices, most likely meant for recording and surveillance. been placed too close to one another. Perhaps someone was spying on the US officials. Whatever covert surveillance devices they use might have malfunctioned, which would mean that? It wasn't an attack so much as it was botched reconnaissance. This idea makes sense given that the diplomats were stationed in Cuba. Historically, the United States hasn't had the best relationships with its is neighbor. Most of the diplomats lived in local hotels in the Cuban capital of Havana. It would have been relatively easy for the government to bug their rooms. Unsurprisingly many of the affected diplomats experience their symptoms while they were at the residences. Conversely there were never any complaints of sonic events within the American embassy itself. US officials were certain. No surveillance gear had ever made its way into the embassy. If the Havana Syndrome was caused by surveillance equipment interference. That would explain why.

"Possibly deb. However none of the Havana Syndrome. Victims had any recollection of head trauma. and the doctors thought Sonic blast wouldn't have been capable of altering the diplomats brains. But somehow scans showed certain differences in the brains of diplomats affected in Cuba. Dr. Douglas Smith who led the team at the University of Pennsylvania, said there was no prior record of the type of brain. The victims of Havana Syndrome experienced. No one had seen anything like it. Because most of the victims reported hearing noises. Some health officials initially shared the belief that the victims had been hit by a sonic blast, but that didn't solve all the problems Dr Smith felt. The most pressing mystery with the injuries was what he dubbed the Immaculate Concussion. For a sonic wave to cause brain damage, a victim's head would have to be submerged underwater. It was only then that the waves could have enough amplitude to cause any physical harm to the brain. While, Smith continued to search for the culprit of the syndrome, he started to consider other types of concussive beams could've been used. He studied various spectrums of beams and eventually determined. The blast was in sonic in nature. Instead Smith thought it might be a microwave beam. Sound waves only travel at the speed of sound while microwaves can travel at the speed of light. This means they have an increased amount of energy. And while they don't produce sounds in the traditional sense, microwaves can trick the brain into producing auditory sensations if directly beamed inside someone's head. So I'll know actual sound is emitted. The rain might interpret the Stimuli as hearing an unpleasant sound. A microwave blast could create the necessary trauma for a concussion without any sign of external impact to the head. But as of this recording, Dr Smith hasn't been able to definitively prove his apotheosis. Into this day. No weapon of this kind exists. or at least none that we know of. As more time passed without an answer new theories, regarding the cause of Havana Syndrome emerged some claim the injuries were caused by a viral infection or by crickets. Other suggested, the diplomats had a moment of shared hysteria brought on by the high threat high. Stress Post in Havana. Before each diplomat was sent to Cuba it was drilled into their heads that they're, they would be under significant surveillance. These diplomats had to adjust to a high probability that there would be listening devices in their houses and even in their cars. That type of environment might lead to paranoia, which in turn could produced physical effects in those stationed there. But the diplomats who develop symptoms had zero doubts. They were victims of a specific purpose full attack. They felt the beams. They experienced nausea and Vertigo they were certain. They all heard the same deafening metal scraping. They have documented brain and inner ear changes to prove it. Takes both domestic and international clouded everything. When it came to the various intersecting narratives of the mystery, politicians had vastly different interests that might prevent them from telling the truth. From trying to win trade wars while pleasing disparate political basis to protect national secrets and classified weapons. It's almost impossible to know what each country's leaders true intentions were. First of all this mystery may have. Setback relations between the United States and Cuba. After the Havana Syndrome emerged the American staff operating in Cuba went from fifty three diplomats to just over twelve. Similarly Cuba sent about two thirds of its staff in Washington back to their island. By two thousand, eighteen, then national security adviser John Bolton started grouping Cuba with Venezuela and Nicaragua, calling them the triangle of terror. The reversal was complete. Almost all progress between the US and Cuba had been lost. We still don't know for certain. What caused these horrific events? But next time we'll examine three of the most popular theories surrounding Havana Syndrome I that it was caused by a government weapon. That's been covered up. There is a chance that intelligence agencies around the world have a vested interest in keeping the details of Havana and Guangzhou a secret from citizens. Maybe. They don't want to reveal that. They bungled the investigation or they're trying to keep the public from panicking. Perhaps the offending country apologized, and the incident was smoothed over. Keeping it a secret, maybe imperative to peaceful international relations. The second theory is a bit more bizarre Havana. Syndrome is caused by species of insect. Yes! The damage may have been done by insects. Lastly it's been proposed that the syndrome is a case of mass hysteria brought on by years of international tensions. Havana. Syndrome may be the latest development in the cold, War a war. No one is even fighting anymore.

Relations between the US and Cuba had greatly improved over the last year, but every American working in Havana knew they were under constant surveillance.
