"America is back," Biden tells Munich Security Conference
"By video link at the Munich Security Conference. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke NPR's Rob Schmitz was watching from Berlin. Welcome, Rob. Hey, Howdy President Biden emphasized today that he is reaffirming America's commitment to the transatlantic relationship. What else did he have to say? He had a lot to say. First off. He really hit home that Europe is a cornerstone of America's approach to the rest of the world, and that the transatlantic alliance is more important than ever, he pointed out. The West faces a new set of challenges. He mentioned the strategic threat of China as well as Russia and, of course, the Corona virus pandemic. But he said one of the biggest challenges the West faces now is that as we gradually come out of this pandemic, he said, many people in the world are wondering if autocracy Has emerged as a better system for governance. And he said the U. S and Europe need to work together to show the world that democracy will prevail. Here's what he said Democracy doesn't happen by accident. We have to defend it. Fight for it, Strengthening renew it. We have to prove Our model is in a relic of history. It's a single best way to revitalize the promise of our future. And the response from Germany or France. You know, Merkel and the crone got right down to business. Both of them reacted with the kind of a laundry list of items that have built up over the past four years that need to be done multilateral approach to vaccinations for the developing world, reinvigorating The Iran nuclear deal. The Paris climate accord Afghanistan, you name it, these air all issues that from the European perspective have suffered from neglect under the Trump administration. And have been festering over the past four years. I spoke to Sudha David will of the German Marshall Fund after the event, and she told me it's clear. Both Merkel and McCrone are thrilled that Biden has reaffirmed the transatlantic alliance. Europe needs a strong U. S. And buying, I should say, because Merkel is now a lame duck. She's going to be inward looking as she looks to preserve her legacy, which has taken some knocks lately because Germany has not done a great job dealing with the second phase of pandemic. And Micron is going to be busy with an election in 2022. But are the French president? Macron did say that the EU needs to be more involved with its own security going forward, and we've been hearing that for the last couple of years. That was a complaint from former President Trump that that you needed to spend more on its own defense. Are they actually doing that? They are And as you mentioned, your former president, Trump spend years badgering them about this. And in today's speeches, both Merkel and McCrone pointed out there spending more than ever on defense and Grown even went so far to say that Europe should spend even more in the future because, he said, the U. S is clearly focused on China and in the Pacific region more than ever. And that means that Europe needs to step up its own defense to better manage threats in its own neighborhood. That's NPR's Rob Schmitz. Joining us from Berlin. Rob, Thanks for your reporting. Thank you. What is the point of buying something now? If you can't

Christine Rimer On Learning From The Data
"Adam. You know we've talked a lot about how changes that we encountered in twenty twenty affected customers. But you know who else. They affected everyone. Everyone including customer experience leaders. Yes one hundred percent the people who were leading these organizations who were trying to figure out. How do we adjust. How do we react. How do we keep our leaders focused on the customer experience when all these other things are happening. And that's why. I'm so excited about the conversation that we're about to share with christine rhymer from surveymonkey. She works with these leaders all the time and really goes out of her way to listen to them. And it's just there's so much in here. I am so excited. Knows great interview and she brings brings a wealth of data which is fantastic. Because obviously she's surveymonkey they have the data they bring the receipts right. Gene-o and yeah. I mean that's been one of the things we've talked about with clients and it's just. How do you predict how plan for howdy strategies for a future when you know that is always about projecting forward a pattern Th that's all leadership for the future is and you know outside of some innovation generally trying to figure out which what are my percentages in which patterns or going to apply. And how are they going to play out and when the pattern is completely just wrecked right. It doesn't exist anymore. How do you project that future so you know. Christine brings some lessons from a lot of discussions and a lot of data about like what we're executives facing. And what did they do. What were the things that were most important in customer experience last year as everyone tried to figure out this uncertain future. Yeah absolutely impressive. I should say certain future. But they had certain president. Yeah i think we're in for uncertainty a while so we can say present and future so there are lessons in this episode for nail And for and for the future. I would say so. So let's get started. Let me tell you a little bit about my friend. Christine rhymer seasoned executive with a unique blend of product marketing customer success and enterprise systems experience leverage to lead high-performing cross functional teams to deliver world class customer experiences as the vice president of customer experience. Christine leads survey monkeys customer experience program community and thought leadership to drive growth and innovation prior to joining survey monkey in two thousand sixteen christine held a variety of cx leadership roles including intuit's professional services team for digital banking and the customer success for into it health. Christine began her career in enterprise. Business systems and data management where she aligned cross functional teams to deliver measurable business outcomes. Christine leverages her customer centric and bias to action approach to help organizations transform customer feedback into action to improve the customer experience to drive growth. Hi christine were so happy. You're here with us today for being here. Thank you so glad to be here. Jeannie an atom. So great have you. I know you have tremendous insights a working with serving a monkey as you do. Because i sure you've seen a lot of data so i'm going to get straight to the million dollar question here. The early part of twenty twenty one. How has customer experience change as a result of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's it's a great question. Adam and and you know honestly. I can remember sitting at my desk in april going. Oh dear lord like for all the date i have. I have not navigated. What do you do when you're not sure to me. It's you ask for feedback right and so actually very in april. I gathered a dozen custody of the top customer experience leaders. That i knew and i asked him that very question. What are you doing different. And so we'll talk about an. I'll give you kind of three headlines of what i saw early in the pandemic that true that influenced customer experience in twenty twenty and then sort of t ap at least what i'm seeing heading into twenty twenty one grio. The first thing we saw was a bunch of folks in headlights. Saying i can't actually focus on the customer experience if my employees are not in a position to deliver so it was so funny those initial conversations when we try to talk about. What are you doing different for your customers. It all came back to the employee experience. So things like are they set up to work from their homes. Assuming most folks not all right. The result essential workers but most folks then shifted. How they do their work to home. So do they have the right tools. Are they a the able to manage their customers. Privacy etc so really really tactical setting employees up for success but then on top of that making sure employees were positioned slash trained to show up to the customers with empathy. So right you're talking to a customer in march and april and there in new york city. How are you and they're a restaurant or they are a travel industry. How we showing up with that right Both the policies as well as the expectation setting to show with your customers. We know empathy matters but my goodness this year. If you're not showing up human first before business right you're just missing the mark and we've seen this both in the conversations As well as you know in terms of how you show up digitally
Interview with Phil McAlister
"Hello and welcome to the skeptics guide to the universe. Today is sunday january seventeenth twenty twenty one. And this is your host. Stephen avella joining me this week. Or bob novella. Everybody cara santa maria. Howdy joy novella. Hey guys and evan bernstein skepticism. On a sunday. I love it. This is a rare sunday recording. We're doing this because of the twelve hour show next saturday. The saturday this show comes out. I probably will be posted in this up right before we begin to twelve hours. Show so if. You're listening to this on saturday that it comes out. We're probably in the middle of the twelve hour show. Why aren't you watching that instead. Leaving this to console you on sunday or monday because the twelve hour livestream is over priorities. So we're not keep saying like we're trying to get away from doing the covert thing every week but there's always stuff to talk about that has to recover recovered. Schwab one thing about it. Obviously it's still raging the numbers that getting scary high still is crazy but david kessler which was announced as the covert czar for the incoming biden. Administration you guys remember who he is. Yes cast that. He was in From london movie right cutler no he was a former head of the fda in the ninety s and after his stint in the at the fda in the nineties the president for a while of yale school of medicine. That's how i. I know you have on speedo him personally. But you know the commissioner of food and drugs for h w bush and clinton muslim sounds nonpartisan. I like that a he. He was very much opposed to the shea. Dietary supplement health and education. Act which was a terrible loss stills eternal and he was he was completely right correct in his opposition to it so hopefully because a lot of experience. Hopefully he'll will prove to be the right person for this job. And we're hoping to shift into high gear will along that line steve in three days. Yeah did you hear. That biden is elevating. He's making a cabinet of science. Yes yes scientists. -nology whatever is now going to be cabinet. Level is a cabinet level position for the first ever cap which will not be in the line of succession by the way. It's a cabinet level position. But it's not a cabinet position. I thought he was building a cabinet filled with cool science thing like curio cabinet closet of mystery. I remember that from what is this endless fascination with forbidden closet of mr really cool i mean. It's the first time the president has ever put somebody at that high. A level in science position which conferences shows his commitment to evidence based policy and also francis. Arnold who i'm super excited about you guys remember. She's caltech scientist who recently won a nobel prize. She's going to be within his his group. I'm not really sure how everybody's designated quite yet but within that group of scientists which is very exciting. I think it should be like the bridge of the enterprise. D where you've got the president the vice president and you've got the czar of science right up there with the big boys because that's where belongs in the position that the council the troy was in. That's what i'm saying. Sitting do truth be told captains left. I am kind of glad that it's not a. I shouldn't say this i don't know i don't know if i would want it to be a cabinet position because then because then they enter into the line of succession and i do worry that whoever is appointed could potentially be. Isn't that a worry about every single cabinet level position. Never i mean. Is there a cabinet member. You guys ready to become president on day one. I mean unless you've watched the survivor soul survivor. Some of those people have served in previous administrations have worked in government. It's obviously it's never happened. I it's so unlikely that i don't think someone's going to pick or not pick a cabinet member because they don't think that they're ready to be president. Yeah i mean why. Scientists are science minded person. Good as president. I think that's what we want. They wouldn't necessarily be it would be but they would still need to be somebody who has executive leadership skills all right. Let's get right into some news items. Is it true that astronomers were wrong about the number of galaxies in the universe. a what. Yeah they're often wrong about stuff like that so yeah. The estimated number of galaxies in the universe was recently cut in half. You are correct steve. So how the hell did this happen. And and more importantly what is the worst title for a news item covering this discovery. All all will be revealed So this all started years ago when the hubble space telescope did some deep sky surveys and it came up with the estimate for the number of galaxies which was two trillion lots of galaxies two trillion in the universe. It did this by using by doing deep field observations. These are observations. That take a really long time looking at the same patch of sky. So you're you're building up the photons right you just building up. The photons. seeing what's revealed and that would that reveals after a while that reveals the very very very faint galaxies. And then then it's easy. Yes sir but can we clarify. Are you talking about the observable universe so you just just just a good point to a good time to clarify that. The the observable universe is a subset of the total universe because like because some of the universe has moved beyond the on the einstein limit rights even traveling at the speed of light. The universe is not old enough for light to travel from there to here so we can't see it's outside of our bubble our light bubble right. It's a little complicated. But yeah i think primarily although not necessarily implies that it's it's just it's just observable we'll we'll see maybe we can. Let's revisit at the end okay. So then so then. Once you have this patch of sky that you've looked at for a while Then you and then you then you know how many galaxies right then you just multiply that little patch by how many similar how many patches in the in the sky are there. And that's and that's basically. What hubble did but we knew that. That wasn't quite accurate though that that's because there has to be other galaxies that are out there that are just too faint to be directly detected even with the best deep field observation that the h. The hubble space telescope could muster onto those super faint galaxies though they do create a suffused glow. Just a general glow in the galaxy and now this background glow that i'm talking about is called the cosmic optical background which is a term. I hadn't i hadn't seen before which is fascinating because it reminded me of maybe was well the cosmic microwave background which is the first light of the universe when it became transparent to electro-magnetic radiation the cosmic optical background that was the glow of all the

Do One Thing Differently
"Presently. We posted a question on our website. We asked what one thing would make your life better and we got three thousand eight hundred and forty responses almost immediately to that one question. What would make your life better. It's an interesting question to ask yourself right now. If i were to answer that question. Because i have a pretty good life i have to say. It's a wonderful life and what you see on. The outside is one thing but really i think the greatest thing about my life is that i have a great sense of inner peace that is sort of indescribable. But what would really make my life. Better is if these boots that i'm wearing today had come in a size ten instead of a size nine and a half because i was in that little fendi store and i you know how you really like it a lot and the lady says. I'm sorry we only have a half but they run big my feet not feeling that they run big right now so that would have made my life better if they came in size ten. All i can ask or some folks. Chicago had definite ideas though about the one thing that would improve their lives thing that my life better would be a fulltime housekeeper tans down probably a fulltime unpaid life assistance to follow me around and do whatever i needed them back and design my own man who have them show up whenever i want have believe whenever i want. Someone could walk my dog when it's raining or when it's snowing a couple extra hours in the day one thing that would definitely make my life better is if i could have lunch with your we shop and you can do my hair and then i can do your hair personal shopper. Drive through starbucks so i wouldn't have to get out of my car. Free parking thing that would make my life better is paying less taxes in each magic degree. better johnson. definitely more sleep.

Who are not good for me. That was a lotta people. A lot of people have just say goodbye. We're going to talk about. How do identify the things that you do. Have the power to change and how doing just one thing differently can move you in the right direction. But i i wanna talk to lisa. Snugs lisa's answer to the question. What one thing would make your life better was similar to a lot of the messages we receive from wives around the country. And you wrote lisa speaking up for the wives around the country the one thing that would make my life better is if my husband would come home each day and give me a hug and kiss and say i thought of you today. Oh you're not alone. That is not happening and a lot of homes across america. I thought it was. I thought it's like ward cleaver comes home dear. That's not too busy. I think too busy busy well. This lisa's husband andrew were you. Were you surprised to hear that. That's the one thing not a chauffeur. I was a little surprised but you know we have very busy. Lives and take for granted.

That was in sixth grade at an apple. Two but i was There's a big gap in there. Where i was missing things but Starting with that. I mac and the internet i i you know got hooked just like everybody else did and but the key thing was i wanted to know how it works so i was viewing the source code of pages in one thousand nine hundred and creating and made gifts frame by frame before.

Oh oh that's interesting story. So like i've always been fascinated with computers from from a very young age I there's pictures that my the my dad took of Me messing around with Their computer was running windows. Ninety five back in the day so it's It's been a while But the thing that really got me into it and really interested. And it's like a weird angle. I guess but. I was messing in powerpoint.

"But so in ancient world we we cannot understand it without mentioning religion but we also cannot understand that without mentioning sophy and you are mentioning that our our hero of the of the story echoes. He lived at the same time as plato and aristotle and and you also have the scenes in your book where where these philosophers appear so would be exciting. You maybe share a little bit about those Those storylines in in the book before olympic games. Cenovate thirty on just Too which was the blaze were. Lotto's gymnasium was located on. They had them exhibition resting much. First alex against the abuse and then what was one of spectators and then he wanted to challenge alex unbuckle.

Local mocha pick festival in offense. They're spending like going just the other an underground With wine about philosophy and so roaches or encounters with those two big names. And yeah you mentioned that. You didn't want to go into detail about the philosophy of plato aristotle. But i think it's quite a nice way of kind of tying in those historical figures which brings to the question that i didn't remember to ask yet was that did you have a character. All my historical character dot you draw inspiration from when you are building your your character aliko stories. He like a combination of different stories and sources. Or how how did you. How did he come to be as he is. He's for cirque combination of of different ideas. That are there must be bark of me. Thinking there is part of fiction My biggest hero in Cup all the up. His character person. I would say i have copied a face. He's characters he used in east books. So it's gonna fly combination of these three things. Yeah do we have any any stories that we have available about the athletes of those times. Do we have any sources about we know generally about sports than we know generally about the olympics but do we have any in his threes of those athletes. Who actually doing we do. Have something mostly bow. Stories out you know for some kremlin of millo. lexi's time a little bit cleaner. Howdy highly. it was like the cow in his shoulder and carried it for.

And in front of the other side of it If the Chargers keep Fred Dean You know, Maybe that game is not at the Ice Bowl in Cincinnati. Maybe it's in San Diego. It's a home game. So Amy look at who won the Super Bowl. That year. That was a trade between two of the top four teams that went to the final 4 40. Niners won the conference championship won the Super Bowl because of Fred Dean. And the Chargers did not. So that's just one of those trait. I mean, you look at it. It's one of the biggest trades in the history of pro football and that it set the 40 Niners upto win again and again and again. And he was on the first two. So it's just a change history. There's no doubt about it. Yeah, a great tribute, Tio, Fred Dean and again, you can see that online. You can see Obviously the audio's really moving, But you could go online Social media today Twitter. And you can check it out onto the NFL Hall of Fame and really well done in a tribute to Ah, Fred Deans. There

The South Asian Identity In The Current Political Moment
"To prime spots at the political conventions went to two Indian American women Nikki Haley and Kamala Harris, who each leaned into their South Asian immigrant identity and their speeches. Here's Haley, former U. S ambassador to the U. N kicking off the Republican National Convention yesterday. This is personal for me. I am the proud daughter of Indian immigrants. They came to America and settled in a small southern town. My father wore a turban. My mother wore sari. Meanwhile, last week while accepting the Democratic nomination for Vice President, Kamala Harris thanked her mother for raising her to be proud of her Indian heritage. We're here to talk through this moment for South Asian Americans in American politics is Kartik Rama Krishnan. He's a professor of public policy at U C. Riverside. Hey, they're welcome. Thank you for having me so to conventions to women, speaking about their families and their upbringing, with so many Americans watching what these two moments represent, do you think It's a pretty remarkable moment. When you look at the Indian American population. It has grown tremendously in the last two decades, of course, in the case of comely Harris and Nikki Haley They were born and you know, the 19 sixties and early 19 seventies. So you know they've been part of a prior wave of Indian American migration. But still, the vast majority of Indian Americans have arrived in the United States since 1965. And it's remarkable to see how quickly the next generation has come up in politics and how big a deal is their national political political prominence for The South Asian community here in the states. This is a big deal. I mean, what you've seen, for example, is more and more Indian Americans running for office. So you have the so called Samosa Caucus, which had five Indian American members of Congress If you include the House and the Senate after 2018 I think what you're going to see now and especially with Harris. His candidacy is even more people getting inspired more Indian American South Asians more generally, and especially Asian American women feeling inspired to run for office and I think the same you're probably going to see on the Republican side, although When you look at candidates running for office where Indian American, the vast majority of them tend to be Democrat rather than Republican. Well, I was just about to ask is we hear so much about Latino voters? Black voters, other groups. I was going to ask which way understanding is hardly monolithic, but which way South Asian voters tend to lean in and how big a role they could play in 2020. The South Asian voters tend to lean Democrat and pretty heavily Democrat. One way to think about this is that they tend to be the most Democrat leaning either in terms of their party identification or presidential vote choice among all of the Asian American groups on DH there, Lina stronger than among Latinos but less strong than among African Americans. So that's a kind of good benchmark. Now there has been a lot of out its by the Trump administration. So President Trump had a rally in Houston called Howdy movie Rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He made a high profile trip to India this year as well. That said, it's really going to be hard to shift in the American voters and other South Asians given their partisan lean and also where they stand on the issues and on most issues like health care and immigration. And gun control in the environment. They tend to be progressive, so it's going to be a group that's going to be very difficult to dislodge from the Democratic column that was Professor Kartik Ramakrishnan of UC Riverside talking about the Indian American vote. It's about 1.8 million Indian Americans who will be eligible to vote in this coming November's election.

What are you talking about Garros? Haven't? You heard heard what? Well, for the past few decades, a lot of our recycling things like paper and plastic and glass has actually been shipped off to China to get recycled. Except over the past year, China has told the world that it can't take all of our junk anymore. Why not? Well, we humans have generated too much of it and recycling all of that crash has become too difficult for China. So, what does that mean for how we recycle our garbage? Well, it means that in many cities in America and even in other countries they stopped recycling. Just stopped, recycling like Dennis. Mandy. I didn't stop recycling I never started gay Roz, if they're not recycling than what's happening with all that cardboard and plastic, well, a lot of it is being incinerated or burned.

20 Minutes About A Smart Rowing Machine
"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and

Guys Do. You know what he's. He had like a weird like mid tax break which he's never had before. Pick about it right? Yeah I, think everybody did. Last night. So like screw this finishing this crap I hate it and also I think the thing. Is Nobody really knew what was going to happen, but a lot of people got hit super hard, which is why the tax deadline was pushed back so they're like I can't afford to pay my taxes right now, but maybe come July all be in better place financially. Unfortunately, a lot of people are even worse place financially now. There's just kind of kicking. The can down the road speaking of that Steve What are the latest numbers are not good. You know especially in the United States so worldwide. We've surpassed twelve million cases with over five hundred and fifty thousand deaths. In the U, s where over three million cases and Around, one hundred thirty thousand deaths, at least that number's always because probably more. And you know it's just in the US just exactly what we warned about. We're seeing the second hump in the first wave and the greatest number of new cases per day is happening right now. This is a greater surge than we had back in March and April, and this is what we talked about. What happens when we start to open up what happens if then cases start to surge again, what will be? Do you know people have lockdown fatigue? The economy's already taken a big hit from the first lockdown. Some states opened up too quickly. They didn't do it properly with enough testing and contact tracing. And now we're seeing this really bad second wave and the sad thing is. They're having to do it kind of haphazardly like they're the states where they said. Okay we want to reopen, so they never really fully lockdown or they did, but they only stayed lockdown for like two weeks, and then they were like okay bars. We got to reopen. We got to get the economy going. And now the cases are just bananas out of Control and so they're doing this like quick quick. Quick your mask back on, and it's kind of like it's haphazard. It's not clean. It doesn't feel as controlled. And I think that's where things really do. Fall through the cracks, and then, of course we have this whole. Political Anti Mask Movement. That does seem to correlate with some of the same states where we're seeing these spikes. We definitely see in California. I mean you know in more conservative districts, but there are sort of marbled in California, so I definitely hear it even in L. A., it's not as common but. Not that Far Away San Bernardino County's very close, and you see the people. Holding angry signs and it's just. Did you guys hear that they did? A study showed that if they mandated mask you have. Made it pretty much requirement? Everyone wearing masks in public that they could save forty five thousand lives over the course of I'm not sure what the course of the period the period of time would be I think like three or four months. Five thousand I mean if that number that was that was fairly solid number. Would what else would you need but like okay, then we're. We're doing this. You have to wear a mask in public period. Almost the Vietnam War right there. Yeah, no more was fifteen thousand so imagine we could save the same number of lives lost over ten years the Vietnam War just by wearing I think it's such a profound number that we're not even equipped intellectually to really understand that that much right like I don't know forty thousand people I can't picture forty five thousand people sitting in a room I don't know what that looks like. I look like a baseball football stadium. Wouldn't that be roughly? Park, speech larger than the student body of my Alma Mater and speaking of masks. Study this week very that people might be interested in, so they just compared different types of masks, and how well they work, and of course the ones that you think should work the best do right so the ninety nine masks supposed to stop ninety nine percent of the virus were the best followed by end ninety five of course block, Ninety five percent of the virus, and their tests show that those numbers roughly accurate. And then followed by surgical masks, so they were the next, so those are the ones that healthcare workers are using, and they do work the best for the homemade ones they said was the best so actually interestingly, using vacuum cleaner filters was the best like homemade option. Just make a little pocket in your mask. You put those filters in there, and you can replace them like if they get moisture used. And that was the best using any kind of a close. We've. tight-knit cotton was good. They said what did not work is wearing. A scarf doesn't really do much to the only a slightly better than no mascot, all or a t shirt like pulling a t shirt up over.

"Loan welcome to the. Universe today is Wednesday July first twenty twenty, and this is your host Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella everybody. Santamaria Howdy Jane Novella guys and Evan Bernstein welcome to the second half of the year everyone. Let's hope it was as good as the first. This is one of the longest first halves of a year I. Think I've ever experienced in my life. Was Different. Alright the thing that I think that's happened over the last week in terms of the whole Cova. Craziness is the real escalation of the mask wars as a cultural war in the US, which is just crazy. Lutely I guess we'll fight over anything right? It's hard to be. You know to be surprised after everything we've seen. But, this is a little bit surprising people fighting against the masks. Is just well, but you know what it's not that surprising. If you know a little history, because the same exact thing happened in nineteen eighteen during that flu pandemic, there was a general recommendation to wear masks, and there was actually an anti mask league of people pushing back against mask wearing, and you're saying that specifically a here in the US right. I think it's elsewhere as well I think the UK's having a little bit of a pushback it's. Component known another. Component was not just in the US that was even more over in Europe. Interesting that this the current anti mask nonsense is mainly a US phenomenon I think, but I think it is happening elsewhere as well just not as much so I've been seeing some really interesting assertions about the fact that some of the underlying ideology really comes down to the fact that historically America, and you're right some kind of European. Nations as well especially, the UK kind of pride themselves on an individualistic society as opposed to a collectivist society, and obviously everybody falls somewhere on the continuum of those two things, but America has sort of a long history of being very individualistic, very proud of it, and that kind of mentality could have some explanatory power when we talk about these anti mask fights. Yeah I think that's part of it if you look if you look like there was famously testimony in Florida from people who pushing back against mask wearing and they you know the big theme was liberty and freedom. You'RE NOT GONNA. Tell me what to do, but there was some subset of them woven religious themes. Like this, you're covering God's face whatever you know really interesting. I know. Who you're supposed to cover your head. Whatever and then the other theme was pseudoscience, right? It was making claims that will masks are unhealthy, or they don't work. Since just exactly like the ANTIBAC- sers the same same playbook, so how much of that is just like trying to find justification for that lip? Wonderful Sam. Percent this idea that I'm more concerned about my own comfort than I. am about the well being of others? It's really representative of an individualistic view. That's hard to extricate because it's like it's so woven into society that kids in America are born thinking that way depending on how multicultural bicultural whatever you are. How many generations you've lived here, but when you look at collective societies, the idea that somebody would make a decision to for their own betterment at the expense of other people's welfare is like bananas to them. I mean I. Think I think like we were saying. There's a huge component here of it being a political statement. You know I've been doing a lot of work like you know. Heavy lifting type of work with a mask on prepping for nexus and yeah like it's harder to breathe when you have a mask on, but they've proven that you're not at a loss for oxygen like you're not suffering from a lack of oxygen because you're wearing a mask, it just restricts your breathing a little bit. It's like trying to breathe through. A Straw of a certain size feels a little CLAUSTROPHOBIC, but yeah. Has. Anything worse but Kovalev. Yeah, but yeah, you're right J does not restrict your ability to get oxygen into your blood, and it doesn't cause you to re rebrith the CO two enough of it is getting out. You know the thing is you have to keep in mind? Surgeons of wearing masks for hours a day for tire, adult career for hundreds of years, or whatever at least one hundred years you know, so, that's not a new thing, and you know what about I've gone skiing all day with Neoprene facemask for eight hours at at a time. You know what I mean. People wear beliefs essentially functionally face masks in cold environments for long stretches of time, not an issue so. It really is. It really is not since people have been passing around these fake like exemption cards, but they're totally bogus. There'd be. Frustrating because there are you know a handful of people for whom they really can't wear a mask because they have such a severe psychiatric issue Oregon some sort of medical exemption, but also probably there's a big overlap between the people who would really need a medical exemption and a severe risk of if they contract covid. They're going to not fair as well so people probably shouldn't be spending as much time

We've forgotten I think what actually manged to be a neighbor. I WANNA level with you. I don't know what it's like to be a good neighbor.

We know what it means to be a colleague or a friend that we haven't always remembered and I think this pandemic is reminding US Stockley that there's this other dimension to average just part of our responsibility as a citizen in this society is to be a neighbor and that doesn't mean between the people in our street into our best friends. It does name that we establish another contact with them so they know that they can call on us in crisis and we know that we can call on them in a crisis and the psychological payoff is big.

Why would you make friends with other people on Your Street? Even though you've lived there for three years I mean in hindsight that sounds ridiculous but that was totally the mindset up until now tell me what's changed I kinda thought Probably a good time to get to know some of the people close by just in case something goes wrong in my life just in case something goes wrong in this just said that the people close by I guess we could create a little community and ensure that everyone was looking at freight Shutt-. Look my fear was that there was going to be some poor eighty. Plus you old couple and they were gonNA get sick and no one was going to know about it.

I get that I do but in reality a lot of the time I just WanNa stay inside an eight a very big bowl of pasta in the fetal position and not talk to anyone. What's the problem with that? I must say I can relate to that and you know to be completely brutally transparently Frank There's nothing I like better than the prospect of equipped when I can read or write and think And not have to engage with An interview with Jan Friend Day. No no not at all because I know I'm human because we're social beings humans We are in this thing together. All of our voices sound bitter when they blended with the choir but the other thing that would restrain me from going to the stream of the position that they're described is to recognize that social isolation is actually very bad for us especially when we know what social psychology is. Now telling us. We crystal clarity that being socially isolated is an unhealthy state force where we're herd animals. That's how nature and we belong in groups In neighborhoods and families in workplace communities and all sorts of communities. That's natural for us to run with the hood to graze with so when when herd animals are cut off from heard this is inclined to produce a negative state for them now. The obvious things that we always think of when we think of the health has a with social isolation we think of anxiety and depression and yes. That's true social. Isolation is associated with heightened levels of anxiety and a greater risk of depression. But it's not only that they're physical ailments that are now seen to be associated with prolonged periods of social isolation jazz hypertension compromised immune systems Hard risk of addiction Particularly to it devices cognitive decline Sleep disturbances there.

Justice System Solitary confinement is the worst punishment can think of for prisoner. 'cause it is the worst punishment for a member of of of a social species like out so the thing that would always pull me back from the brink of becoming a hub is to just look at the evidence. Look up the science and site I know it would be really bad for me if I retreated into a little cocoon and cut myself off from Normal social networks and from neighbors and extended family and so it is healthy for us to be connected and integrated and engaged and it's unhealthy for us to withdraw tens out knowing your neighbors is really good for your sense of wellbeing. Remember those predators that we were born rable to when we were alone in modern. Live when we feel alone. It's our bodies and minds that start to booby-trap themselves. It's a stress response.

That's amazing for everyone to keep practicing this balanced breathing. I put a link to a couple of videos episode notes.

Breathing is a really amazing breathing technique to keep practicing because it helps our whole body feel calmer by slowing down our heart rate. Lowering our blood pressure and improving our lungs breathing. It even improves our attention in coordination as you're switching back and forth with her hand in our nostrils and you will be happy to know that that's the last time I say the word Nostril in this episode.

Things like seemeed eat floating by this is their way of getting a free ride because they can just relax and move along with the seaweed as it floats through the ocean. They can also route their tails around their partner's tail so they don't lose each other sort of like holding hands. Let's end by putting our hands together.

Nama state before it is a Hindu greeting that means I bow to the divine in in you so when you greet someone with your hands and a prayer pose like this bow your head and say Nama stay. What you're telling that person is that you know and see all the goodness kindness and light in that person and that the same goodness kindness and light lives in your heart to. It's a very beautiful way to greet. Someone and many more people are doing this now. Since we're not shaking hands or hugging people we meet now. Let's end today's relaxation by saying Nama stay to each other. You may be listening to this. A brother sister mom or dad or someone else in your home turn to them now with your hands together and bow your head and say. Nama stay if you're listening on your own. Let's do this together. I have my hands together right now as I'm talking ready Nama stay. I know that there is goodness kindness and light in you. Thank you for being here. Until next time peace out and peace.

Let's do a special breathing exercise. We're going to do alternate nostril. Breathing alternate here means every other. We're going to be touching her face our noses for this. If you have a stuffy nose you can pause this episode now and blow your nose and wash your hands before coming back or you can skip ahead because this will involve breathing through just one nostril which might be tricky if you have a cold for everyone else. It's a great idea to wash your hands. Before and after touching our faces we are going to adapt the regular Hen Movement for this breathing exercise and just user thumb and pointer fingers to pinch your nose. One side of the nose will always be pinched. Close can you put up your thumb right now and now? How about your pointer finger? That's the finger right next to them to make things easier. I'll just call the pointer finger finger and the thumb will still be the FEM. Let's try this verse without worrying about the breathing part.

Many which were sent in earlier this year before the self isolation or sheltering in place of cove nineteen. Here's one of those stories from Edgar at Ghur and my kind of story is one time. I was sick at recess and I went through the Buddy Bench Kazan. Nobody to play with and then Jack came and he said he wanNA play and I said Chore and I felt happy. Thanks that good in the email from acres. Family they explain. That went Edgar said that he felt sick at recess. What he meant was that he was feeling nervous during that recess because he couldn't find his friends to play with. I've heard about buddy benches and schools.

And it's retina display, it's an I it's got eight gigs of ram, and it's got one hundred twenty drive twenty twenty drive, and that's too small for before the show started asked Howdy what hers hat and how much she's she's got eight gig free out of two hundred and fifty six gig drive. I don't I twenty eight might be comically. I don't think anybody should get one with one hundred twenty eight gig drive. I don't care who you are. I don't care what you think you're going to do with this. That's simply it is. It is not enough to do anything. You just you just can't. That's just no I say no to fifty six but just for entry the. But I mean, again, let's go with our hypothetical teen the hypothetical teen is not collecting MP threes like like people have fifteen years ago there str-. Dreaming. They are. I mean, like, what are the biggest files that the typical looking in my daughter's case, she does all her stuff on. Most of their Chromebook, but she does Google docs. It's all web based. I mean, you cou. You. Okay. But you're arguing now that that that's t- think of it like a Chromebook. Yeah. And and you know, and maybe apples arguing that too. That the entry level one. If you think of it like a Chromebook, then it's fine. But I don't know. I still think like my kids. I don't know what they're doing. They take stupid videos themselves running through the house and all kinds of crazy stuff. And like all of a sudden, they filled up their patter idiots hundreds of pictures of their looking up their own nose or something. And you know, and so like you'll be surprised how fast the space fills up. I just think to fifty six is you've got it. You've got to move up to that. Yes. Well, it's interesting. You'll notice here if you scroll down a little bit. So the ones that are above the fold are the one hundred and twenty eight I mean, they're pretty, wow, they're basically at first glance. They are identical except for the size of the drive. That's interesting. Are you getting that too? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, Saint processor design play AAC memory.

"Howdy skies in Denver now on Colorado's morning news were at the Broncos dry for life drive this morning in the Broncos looking ahead to a big match of this Sunday that are going to be taken on the Houston Texans here in Denver right now. Our Broncos insider, Mike Klis is on the live line. Sponsored by Colorado's for responsible energy development. We get the forget the facts at cred dot org. All right, Mike. I know it's cliche. We say this every week. How big is this game against the Texans? How much do the Broncos needed w? Well, I guess they're in. In a position where they can afford one more lost the season and make the playoffs. So there are three and five they put him in a position where they have to go seven and one the rest of the season. So I don't know this games any bigger or monumental than the others. The past weeks have been monumental. Also. They haven't pulled them out. You know, I think a lot of people said the chiefs was a must win. You know before that they were saying the Rams were a must win. So. Yeah. They they have to win it because they pretty much have to win them. All so, I guess in that context. Yeah. It's important, but also psychologically before going into a couple of weeks off before going into the bye. It'd be really nice to have a win and try to get maybe some some Mojo going again. Yeah, you're right. You know, it's a funny thing about the by week the Broncos in two thousand and sixteen had that exciting blocked extra point by Justin Simmons story leapt over the line, and we'll parts returned it for a two point conversion the Broncos had a highly improbable win at New Orleans. They went into the by. And then they just fell flat on the other side last year. They had a win going into the bye. If you remember early in their three in one they came out of the by with an eight game losing streak. So it seems to me like whatever momentum you have one way or the other the by gets in the way, it interrupts it, so we'll see this time. It's later than it usually is the team's not going. Well, I do think it would be a big difference. If they can be a pretty good Houston Texan team. That's hot coming into this. Game sunday. What are the chances? They trade to marry his Thomas or somebody else. I think it's. They're gonna have opportunity. There's I believe there's going to be multiple offers on the table for America's Thomas. I, you know, I don't think the Broncos, you know, I'd be surprised if they got better than a fifth round pick for areas. It might be a six round pick for areas. But I would say it's better than fifty fifty. Marius is traded. And there are a couple of other guys on the block. You know? I think the one problem with Shane Ray who would be available for trade is he's been hurt with a high ankle sprain. The past two weeks. He's close to being ready that that might be to trade him because of his injury. Otherwise. I think he would be on the market Mike before we let you go. The the question that we asked weekly as well how hot is Joseph seat right now. You know? I don't think it's. You know, I don't I don't know about that. You know, it does seem like I get asset that every couple of weeks. I guess. I don't know. I'd rather I'm gonna pump that one. Two weeks ago? That's all we talked about. What happens if the lose? And then they beat Arizona forty five to ten. Yeah. Let's see what happens right now. I think he's I think he's good though, they've been playing hard and competitive, you know, you never know in this business. It is a week to week business in the NFL. But right now, I don't think he's necessarily hot, Mike..

"Okay just the fact that is not true so what's the source of your information in this case in some instances it was quadruple hearsay right there's a reason you don't let that in court and flat out though that's not the reason there's an investigation and those who suggest that is the only reason are completely over their skis there's a rush investigation with or without the fis application whether without the dossier so let me ask you about the president's overall deportment on this do you think he is injuring his own credibility by going after muller in the way he has again the advice has not changed from what i said sunday morning which is if you are innocent part of that is acting like it and and y'all why do you think he wouldn't act like he's innocent i think that there is well i know that there is there's a certain level of frustration that comes from anyone who has quote under investigation if you believe you've done nothing wrong you want the investigation concluded as quickly as possible and it is a it is beyond argument at this has cast a pall over the first part of his presidency i mean we can quibble about whose fault that is but it's definitely cast a cloud so if you are the subject or target of investigation of course you want it done as quickly as possible if you're the investigator you're saying you know what i have an obligation to run out all the witnesses and access all the documents and give you the definitive word and we're not on a time schedule so there's tension and you've been a part of that process if you're looking at someone who you're investigating and they're acting in the way generically the way the president has to that tell you anything does that suggest anything to you.
