And my birthday. And i said i want more awareness and involvement on the whole issue of climate crisis. 'cause i think is the most critical issue humankind faces and we're not doing anywhere near enough. In order to prevent what ultimately some people see is the earth becoming uninhabitable. You've been a corporate executive. You've been a local mayor You've described yourself as a small government conservative for most of your one hundred years. Why do you see climate change solutions as good for our economy and our lifestyle. I'm not thought about it quite as much in terms of its impact on economy. Our lifestyle. I just think that the current generation is for the most part on this issue and expecting the next generation to deal with the critical issues

Concert account believes that were sort of almost forty years. In forty year. Accidents started in october. Nineteen seventy eight and you assigned by factory records initially and it used to be called the ed. Yes yeah and he plays eric's club. There's a funny story when he was signed over to tony balsam factory records in hundred ninety eight. You're going to support joy division and you needed a name for your band. Come with a story because it's so funny. The thing was because we play jerry without you of us but they also knew the and email did this. Qa thing where we would play all electronic stuff because the it was basically a of approach rock band to be honest. And andy. And i wanted to do something electronic purely electronic and we basically because no one wanted to play with us because everyone. I'm using musician friends. Joe take so. We a coal from eric. Saying we've heard about your experimental electronic thing. Come and try out on stage the slot supporting joy division. This is in the october of seventy eight and they said well.

I don't think his parents really liked it very much older titles with and and we thought well we just gotta pick something mad and it doesn't really matter what called because it's only gonna be one gig anyway we'll just pick something that says the was different wynalda punk rock band and we saw customers in the dark and we thought that will do it. Sounds weird you know. It's a great name for a ban. I mean i love md. And i'm an eighty s. Go myself souvenir. that's what. I grew up with all those particular songs and What was it like supporting joy division at the time. Well it was amazing really because they don't just really started themselves and there was about thirty people in the audience. Either the truck julie song but also red frame white light and did you know that the telephone box greenwood road miles call. It was taken away by world council recently and this like a political storm of arctic now the local council could have taken it for pound for pound and the people at the council new the reference of it did a significant amount of it because it was you know we wrote the song red frame white light which was the second single about the phonebox it just got taken away and now all the funds are up in arms though bt as well it will cost you. Three grand maintain the number six three two three. W yeah yeah was also our office our office so because we come from class by neither of us at a phone so that was basically our office so we used to have to take holes at the phone books we used to hang around the phonebox waiting for the phone to ring featuring kicks weeks as well wait for calls back up the phone book the taste jeff any particular stories that sort of stick in your mind about then what was great about those times was that punk it happened and Before punk happened we decided to take electric route. But what was great about the whole punk scene. Was that all these clubs of fanta around england after punk bands but they weren't in a funk bands to fill the night every night and so so these to do alternative nine for anyone. That's doing anything different. You could get in the punk clubs play and if really if it wasn't for punk we probably wouldn't have existed because the word very many supply. These clubs opened up where funds other than punk bands could also exist so Pretty amazing early influences all craft wet. Your music has influences in. That was the kids we heard also bomb late some crossword big single on the radio and was like the first day of the rest of our lives where we heard that went. That is the future of music we want to do that. But the thing was craftwork had all if this incredible technology and because they were quite wealthy writes the wealthy when they began really comes from wealthy family so they could afford all this technology and whereas we were to working with lots from liverpool. He had no money so we had to kind of beg borrow and steal and make i mean my obvious electric's so as to make our early kind of electronic difficult of noise machine i used to get my aunties old radios k. Used to pull them apart and taller off from of them but make noise. We kind of wanted to be craftwork is technology. We were the budget was. We couldn't sound like craft because we have to use all these other instruments so those kind of a good thing. Because i became the mvp but unique sign wasn't in the early days of about say one or two from sounds but now more technology thousands. I mean we. We call it tyranny of choice. Now you can get lost on your possibilities and forget to write it. Some you know you can just go through. All of these simpson got thousands of sounds on now in the same way. A painter palatal is together. We put a palliative sounds together in order to restrict possibilities. We keep writing songs instead of get lots and it was the age of seven at primary school.

You're you're telling few members of one industry that they have the ability to impose a tax on the rest of the industry that that just never happened and So that's why we think we have such a compelling case to tell to tell the courts here that this is just this is just illegal and you can't.

And so we're asking the court to stop that. I'm taking place and so will be up to the judge that we can get that a hearing on that issue could take place very soon in the coming weeks. Well we will wait for that as the next step. And then once said there's a hearing How quickly is there Either a either a a pause an injunction how does how does that process unfold condition injection very quickly thereafter. i mean even potentially At the at the conclusion the hearing but probably within a few days of that well we will with waiting the wait and watch and Certainly brian i appreciate the opportunity to you.

I racing commissions take care most of that now how does a that lateral agency compel the state of arkansas and the state of florida to put part of their revenues into a private entity program to pay for the cost of testing. I have no idea how that could occur. I would assume it would require an an act from the legislature and florida arkansas. Before they could take public money in arkansas and put it in to a regulatory Program or a private entity in bobbing particular industry So those are the kind of questions that are out there.

How were they. not you know. Part of the discussion. I do think it's just another example of how a congress when it fails to actually debate laws How it's it leads to making bad loss in this instance not. It's not even quite clear.

And and so that that with the with the goal lance of course you know. They're doing whatever they do. I don't think they're making them as as Known as they could but very few writers that aren't gonna complain about their publishes Push pushing their books.

UK strips China's state media channel of broadcast license

"China has been recent years trying to improve its global image. That effort took a hit today in London, Britain's communications regulator announced it is stripping the state run China Global Television network of its broadcast license there, MPR's Frank Langfitt explains from London. The C GT N That's it's known, opened its European production center here to great fanfare about two years ago. Today off come, the British regulator announced it was pulling the network's license. Officials said. The reason was straightforward. The people in charge of CG Tien's editorial policy are ultimately beholden to China's Communist Party in British Broadcasting law forbids political bodies from controlling license holders. Thank goodness, Finally, this license has been taken away. Peter Humphrey, performer fraud investigator in Shanghai was glad to hear the news. He filed a complaint against CGT in last year. Not over Communist Party control of the network. But over Chinese state media is airing of what Humphrey says was a forced confession. It followed his arrest in 2000 and 13 on charges of illegally acquiring the personal data of Chinese nationals. Well, of course you go way up 10 personal information by illegal means. I regret what I did and apologize to the Chinese government. Humphrey insists he never actually confessed and that the interview was doctored. He also says his captors pressured him to make a statement by withholding medical treatment for his prostate cancer, considering the kind of brutal human rights violations that CD Tien has been involved with extracting and packaging forced confessions from prisoners held under torture in China, who've never been in front of a judge. I just think that we should have no organization like that on our soil in Humphries case, Afghan found CGT And had seriously breached fairness and privacy rules. It also found the network had failed to cover the Hong Kong democracy protests with quote due impartiality CG Tien was indignant with today's ruling. It blamed quote the manipulation of far right groups and had I China forces for the off calm decision, according to a statement on way ball, China's nearest equivalent Twitter. The loss of the license undermined two key Chinese government strategy. Steve saying is director of the so as China Institute at the School of Oriental and African Studies. University of London. She camping has been very clear he wants the Chinese story being told well. He wants his versions off everything being spread across the world in the most positive, light possible Sititi and is one of those instruments used for this purpose. It's hang expects the Chinese government to retaliate against BBC reporters in China. Even though the BBC is editorial independent of the British government. Peter Dahlin is the director of Safeguard Defenders Human Rights Organization, which spearheaded the campaign against C G. T n Here. The U. K stands out across Europe is having a quite well developed framework for help to regulate TV for how to control this information. The stripping of the license prohibits CG Tan from broadcasting here, but dollars, says that doesn't mean the network has to leave. Still, he does think today's move could have ripple effects are other countries going to start holding them accountable as well? I say this might be the beginning of a process that city and will find very unfavorable for their type of this information for their type of broadcasting. That would mean more challenges for a Chinese government that has invested a lot in trying to change the way it's perceived. Frank Langfitt NPR NEWS

The Republican state Legislature believes hunters would be willing to pay for a state license to hunt the mythical beast. His district includes a heavily forested keum Mitchie Mountains, not familiar where a Bigfoot festival is held every year, establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt. Bigfoot will just draw more. People, too, are already beautiful part of the state, Humphrey said in a statement This week. Ah, license would only allow the trapping and release of the fictitious, hairy ape like beasts, and not it's killing. Humphrey says he hopes to secure $25,000 in funding to be offered as a bounty. Um, the people to the polls proposal caught Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation spokesman Off guard. He told television station, a local television station that the agency actually doesn't recognize Bigfoot. And only use the science driven research and its wildlife management decisions. Unfortunately for anyone interested in hunting Bigfoot now Oklahoma there creature was last spotted 2000 miles away in Washington state. Mm. That I thought people

Amazon opens online pharmacy that delivers prescriptions

"Amazon launching an online pharmacy customers will be able to buy prescription medications through a new store on its platform code amazon pharmacy. So now when you're at the doctor you can ask them to send prescriptions to amazon pharmacy. Just like any other retail pharmacy. Like you did before. It accepts quote unquote. Most insurance plans poll amazon launching. An online pharmacy was the points. What could possibly go wrong. There are two aspects of the recode article that used santos marcus that i thought were interesting. One is the fact that a lot of things that we didn't anticipate buying through amazon. Now we do so routinely. So i think that bodes well for prescription drugs being part of that but the other part that concerns me quite a bit is the just the number of knockoffs and how unregulated the amazon marketplace. Seems to be at times mock I would never bet against amazon in anything possible. Hitch in this. Is that the prescription. Drug markets skews toward older consumers. They they're the ones who who need this stuff more and that on average somewhat less comfortable with ecommerce younger people had the a lot of The pandemic learn to deal the e. Oh so that that's favor. But i'd be astonished if this flops blake yet had mark's got it exactly right. It's sort of the logical next step for amazon. Now that the pandemic has gotten older generations. Used to shopping for essentials online so sort of the next step beyond grocery in every other day household essentials and this is the age group that they're going to need if they want this to be successful so i think the time is right. Context on this story is comes about two years after amazon com susan company pill pack for seven hundred million dollars is also made other moves into the health space. Health insurance space amazon. Berkshire hathaway and j. p. morgan chase in twenty. Eighteen launched a joint health care venture code haven. We've yet to see where that's going to go. I'm was prime. Members will of course be able to save money paying for medications generic and off brands without using health insurance which is interesting. that's just chace took hit following the news. Drugstore companies like cvs and drug distributors like cardinal health. This will no doubt as well as vice out of walmart target costco's pharmacy businesses to joe this album praying and sharon tell up the wall street journal noting quote. Most americans still prescriptions at the traditional drugstore. Us prescription drug sales at pharmacies was over three hundred billion dollars in two thousand eighteen coins health research firm. A via nearly four billion prescriptions filled each year in the us in march. Mail order prescriptions. Mail order prescriptions. Were up twenty one percent from the previous giving them a six percent slice of the prescription drug market. Hi shannon lost two years. According to suntrust robinson humphrey. Wasn't there a time not long ago when there were a lot of rumors about amazon getting into not the prescription drug business but healthcare coverage insurance coverage. Am i imagining that. Or i might be the time with the two companies haven joint venture with halfway and j. p. morgan chase. So they got together to basically trying to put together some kind of umbrella coverage for all three companies. And somehow i pulled on everybody's sources provide coverage for all of their employees. I think that might be the thing. Maybe i i guess. I was on the impression that it was more comprehensive than just those companies and that they were basically going to try to roll out like you know obamacare. You know amazon care but yeah whether they were going to roll the roll that out to other companies as some kind of a model yet to be seen but i think with their own folks

What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country

Saturday Morning Update with Rick Fowler

What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country

"Were always joined on Saturday morning by John Gizzi. He is the White House correspondent and chief political columnist of newsmax dot com and Newsmax TV, John. Good morning. Good morning, Rick. And what a night it wass. Well, obviously, we're following the latest developments on President Trump and his diagnosis with covert 19. What is the latest you're hearing on the president. The president is resting comfortably at the Walter Reed Hospital where yesterday he left the White House. And arrived at the hospital. I might and he left the White House in his usual business suit looking as he always does. Uh, this is not someone who has been felled by the virus. But simply has symptoms of the Corona virus, and he will rest there until doctors say he can come out. Which effectively scotches the debate. Scheduled for October. 15th. But it doesn't mean he's going to be in the hospital through the rest of the campaign, and we may see a newer and better Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed. For now, all signs are that he's resting and that this is not anything that Americans should be nervous about. John. We know the Corona virus hits each individual differently, assuming the best for the president, where he quarantines for the 14 days and gets through this What is the impact on the campaign for the impact on the campaign is that right now there's an absentee candidate that the president cannot have is make America great again Rallies. He cannot debate He cannot issue pronouncements, although one as the impression after covering Donald Trump for the past four years that no hospital and no confinement Ooh! Ah hospital bed is going to keep him away from his tweeting. Uh, hey, certainly can campaign that way. And another thing. We have a long history in America of candidates who are hospitalized or injured who actually do well as their supporters carry on for them. When he made his first center base in 1948 Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was laid up for a period with very brutal, Cole. His wife, Lady Bird and others served is very effective Speakers and he went on to win hard fought race. I know of a case of another candidate, Arch war who was elected governor of West Virginia after surviving a helicopter crash. So just because it candidate is hospitalized or unhealthy doesn't mean it's a foregone conclusion. He'll lose well, John. Obviously, we know the polarization across the country and the polarization in the media. And there will be a lot of talk about the 25th amendment, and I just wanted to get sort of a factual look. At the 25th amendment. So when people hear the pundits talking about it, they understand it. Alright, 25th amendment was passed. In the late 19 sixties. It is known as the Presidential Succession Amendment. Its functions are twofold. One Puts into law what had been an informal agreement between presidents and their vice presidents. For a long time before them. And that means when the president is incapacitated, say is when he goes under the knife. For surgery, He turns over the powers. Of his office to his number two who effectively becomes acting President Richard Nixon served his acting president after a heart attack. President Dwight Eisenhower, and after a mild stroke, the president suffered Similarly, when Lyndon Johnson had surgery, Hubert Humphrey was the acting president and Dido for George H. W. Bush. Under Ronald Reagan when he had cancer surgery in his second term. The other part of the amendment is that if the vice president succeeds to the presidency, he or she can then designate Vice president that the Senate must give its advice and consent to I might add that when a president is declared unable to continue in his office for health reasons, the 25th amendment can be invoked. By the vice president and his succession to the top job can be insured. Post debate. Polls are now being released Thursday morning, NBC News National Polling had Biden up 7.9 points over President Trump Real clear politics showing Biden with a 6.6 lead over Trump Fivethirtyeight national polling tracker gave Biden the 7.6 advantage. President didn't seem to gain any ground whatsoever in the debates. Possibly lost some ground. What's your analysis is, we move forward. First of all, I do believe that the polls accurately reflect The post debate. Momentum is with Joe Biden, and it has very little to do with the debate itself. But with the media's interpretation of how candidates Trump and Biden acquitted themselves on national television, and of course, the opinion off the punditocracy is almost unanimous. The president was ruled. He interrupted. He had no consistent thought. And Joe Biden was a gentleman. That is their opinion. Which is being repeated by a lot of people. There's two factors that leaves this reporter to say that these numbers might have flaws in them. The first is the hidden vote. There's a lot of people, certainly, as was the case in 2016, who just won't admit they're voting for Donald Trump. Obviously they do so when they're in the voting booth. The other is that Joe Biden right now, by being cool, is holding on and appearing a front runner. Did. Donald Trump loses the debate? It all depends on who you ask. Chuck Booth, commentator and conservative activists from Nevada said the president decided to use this format to speak directly. To his base of supporters and try and rally them to the polls. He compared the president's performance and his refusal to abide by Time outs to the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when Butch is facing a much larger man and challenges him to a knife fight. And then says, but we have to go through the rules. The other man says there's no rules in a knife fight at which point which kicks him. And effectively weakens and subdues him. That's what the president's goal Wass with Joe Biden and to his base, he succeeded. So let's turn to the impact on the Senate and the Congress a lot of business to attend to, including the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We take pause for well wishes from Democrats. But as we can see in the Chuck Schumer tweet, it is a one sentence pause. And then we're back into politics. Here's what he said Friday night. We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for covert and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well, so that's the nicety. And here's the politics. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with the hearing, and there was absolutely no good reason to do so. Well, I would just say that the distinguished minority leader of the Senate, Senator Schumer should look a little bit more. At the rules of the Senate as wrong is there is a quorum of senators in the committee. They could move along, particularly if chairman gavels in now what he's referring to are Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Both Judiciary Committee members and both presently incapacitated by the Corona virus. Both could easily recover in a short time. Remember the Judiciary Committee hearings on drugs, Parrots nomination don't begin until the 14th of Oct over. So any judgments about Senator Tillis or Senator Lee? Not being in the job in two weeks is a bit premature. That's the Supreme Court debate. Let's talk about the stimulus deal. New York Times Reporting. Speaker Pelosi said that the president's positive Corona virus test could change the dynamic and produce a Nagre mint on additional pandemic relief. But a compromise remains elusive. The gist of it from Speaker Pelosi is that now the Republicans will take Corona virus more seriously. Well, where do we

This person says I have been married for around ten years at this point and him always had a much higher sex drive then my husband. which is great for him because he pretty much gets it whenever he wants but his presented some problems for me, the solutions I found after much trial and error are as follows. Don't let yourself get frustrated find ways and means to take care of your needs and desires and communicate that this is what you're doing with your partner. Also, let your partner know regularly that you find them attractive and desirable that confidence boost can work wonders in May help to lift more than his mood don't do ways that will come off as a sex passed.

In the United States happen to believe that the United States is wrong in Vietnam and the Viet Cong are correct and wanting to organize their country and their own way politically if it is a novelty in Chicago that is too bad. I. Assume that the point of the American democracy and sometimes you can. Know, some people do not see, and the answer is that they would.

The chaos that night was profound but LBJ never flew to Chicago to enter the race and Ted Kennedy never came forward as a dark horse candidate. So in the end in the Chicago amphitheater that night in spite of the fact that Hubert Humphrey had barely campaign prior to the convention and in spite of the fact that the tens of thousands of democratic protesters. Across. The country did not support him Hubert. Humphrey still won the nomination much to the Chagrin of a large portion of the democratic. Base. Humphry. Pick Maine Senator Edmund Muskie as his running mate. But he was the numbers in the streets that stole the headlines in all over five hundred protesters were arrested one hundred protesters and one hundred nineteen police officers were injured. Democratic Party leaders had hoped the nineteen sixty eight convention would rally the American people behind their party, but there was still little enthusiasm for Hubert Humphrey with the whole world watching the violent and shameful display in Chicago. The Humphrey muskie ticket seemed doomed from the start as one journalist wrote on the evening of the twenty eighth, the Democrats are finished. When as Republican, nominee Richard Nixon Watch the Democratic Convention on television. He knew the game wasn't over yet. On September fourth nineteen sixty eight Nixon officially kicked off his fall campaign in Chicago in contrast to the chaotic day convention, Nixon was greeted by chicagoans with cheers and smiles Nixon would later write as our motorcade passed through Chicago's loop at noontime an estimated half million people turned out in genuine good cheer with frequent outbursts of enthusiastic support.

And I'm sorry, I'm trying I'm trying to bring the energy, but this is also a very somber script already, and so I want to be entertaining Bhai also want to. Honor respectful. Done that. Be Entertaining, but respectful. And James. Humphrey. You hear him talking now. To, two. The river. All right anyway. gas. So today's are two part our second part of our story on the Isle of Man. T T we're talking about the Dunlop family, are you guys ready to get into it I? Am I think I just want to point out I. Think you're man is the one of the six nicknames I've ever? That's a great and I said well good. It's so it means it means you're a nice guy. It. Yet. It's a rare nickname that sounds really cool. But it also means you're Nice Kylie. Guy that the go-to guy whenever anything needs to be done. Man He's your man. Love it. Great. Start to great episode. Let's dive into it when Marjorie and Ian Forest and their twin teenage sons moved to their house on Douglas Road on the isle. Of Man. One. Of the things they look forward to was the opportunity to watch the legendary I'll of man tourist trophy races from their front yard after all, it's not every day that you can watch the best road racers in the world. Take a corner, your corner in front of your house at speeds of over one hundred, twenty miles an hour. Unfortunately, the forest family had no idea what they were in for on a practice day in two, thousand five, they heard a crash outside Yawkey Carlson, a Swedish racer had run into their gate and flipped into their garden. The Swede was severely injured. Medics rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do Carlson's name joined the two, hundred, fifty plus other men who had died on the t course. The horror didn't end there though officials told the forest family that was to logistically challenging to delay the practice and move Carlson's body instead who Carlson was zipped into a body bag on the Front Garden for ninety minutes as the road marshals waited for practice to end, all the garrisons could do was closed their curtains and forbid their sons from looking outside. We'll I got. Doubts pretty awful. there's no way around it. Motorcycle racing is dangerous. Even riding a motorcycle daily traffic puts you at risk of dying in a crash twenty, nine times higher than that. If you were in a car at the same time, motorcycle riders and racers understand that danger. In fact, it's part of what draws them to the sport. Unfortunately, there's no real way around risking your life unlike cars where technology has greatly improved safety and driver protection motorcycle crashes, you're basically experiencing the equivalent of a no seatbelt through the windshield accident every single time. And as dangerous as motorcycle racing is the Isle of. Man. T he stands out as a full degree of magnitude more dangerous than the rest. First of all public road courses like the Isle of Man were writers have to contend with what they call the furniture. That's sick. They're talking about telephone poles, ditches, garden walls. These are much more dangerous than closed circuit courses or dirt bike riding and racing. While those races do see fatal accidents there hasn't been a deadly crash in a speedway race since twenty sixteen and in the twenty years before that, there is an average of less than one year similarly motocross raced at much lower speeds also sees lower fatalities unlike public road races. These courses are designed with plenty of room to minimize danger to the writers. So if Motorcycle Race Games skydiving public road courses are like base. Base jumping in a wing suit taken an already dangerous activity and bringing it as close to the edge as possible. However, even among public road races, the Isle of Man is easily the most dangerous in the twenty seven years. The T T was part of the World Grand Prix, championship thirty, six racers died on the isle. Of Man. Obviously. More than one year. In comparison at Imatra, there were two fatalities in sixteen years at Hockenheim, three deaths in twenty six years. The second deadliest race after the man was a circuit day SPA francorchamps which. Baby Franker Jam Cams, which saw ten deaths in thirty five years making the Isle of Man and average four times deadlier than even the second most deadly race.

L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club

"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau.

She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

Doctors And Dentists Still Flooding U.S. With Opioid Prescriptions

"New NPR investigation shows that doctors are still over prescribing opioids emphasis on still. It's been years since we have been referring to. As an epidemic hundreds of thousands of people are dead of overdoses, families. Family's destroyed. Children have been removed from their homes. Addicts are struggling to recover and still. Why would doctors be doing this? Our addiction correspondent Brian Man has been looking at publicly available data. Hey, Brian Good morning. You've been on this story for years and at a certain point, it just looks reckless. How could doctors still be over prescribing opioids? Yeah, it seems remarkable. What a lot! Lot of experts tell NPR's for all their dangers. opioids are still kind of hard wired into the American healthcare system. A lot of people for example have insurance that will pay for opioids, but not alternative pain treatments, also a lot of doctors were trained during the opioid boom, and they still see these medications as a quick convenient solution to patient pain. Here's Dr Jonathan Chen. He's a physician in California. Who Studies prescribing patterns if you look worldwide? We're like five percent of the population, but we consume eighty percent of the world's prescription opioids. It's not just a handful of doctors. Doing kind of all arts become a culture that this is normal so normal end deadly twenty the latest year. We have good records. Noel forty people were still dying every day from prescription opioid overdoses. Millions more saw their lives shattered by addiction. There are now tighter regulations in a lot of states. The healthcare industry gotten a ton of trouble. There were lawsuits. Billions of dollars were paid out or will be paid out. Are you saying that none of that worked? But what NPR found is prescribing has come down from the really crazy high levels. We saw during the peak of the OPIOID boom, but critics and people who studied this say progress has been slow and also really uneven. Here's Gary Guy. He tracks prescribing patterns for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is still three times. The amount of opioids being prescribed as there was in nineteen. Nineteen ninety nine and there's also substantial variation across the country. The experts we talked to said that last part is really troubling. It turns out. OPIOID prescriptions have come down a lot in some parts of the country. That's a big success story, but we found other areas of the US especially rural areas and parts of the south where the prescribing boom is still going full tilt enough prescriptions being written in those communities every year for every man, woman and child to get a bottle of pills. Are there differences within the healthcare industry like are certain types of doctors over prescribing while others are not. This is really interesting, so with the CDC. Found is a lot of healthcare. Workers Ignore Federal Safety guidelines that's across the industry, often giving these medications for twisted ankles and lower back pain that could be treated with tylenol or an ice pack, but studies also show yes, that there are sort of opioid. With in health, care, surgeons for example are giving out. Millions of VEX has pills every year, a new study from the University of Pittsburgh found dentists have actually increased the number of powerful opioids. They give out what that means is a lot of these pills going out into communities that can be diverted and misused. Here's Keith Humphreys. He Studies opioid prescribing at Stanford University you have this incredible reservoir pills, but doesn't exist in other countries, so it's it's remarkable. This continues and that we put this much potentially deadly drug out on the street every year, but that's situation we're in, and that's obviously super dangerous for those communities.

"Each time. Interestingly I did a book called security breach in two thousand seven or eight where both the agent and the publisher told me to make it a standalone. But that was before so you know this is must be how the market works. It's very difficult. But now that Netflix and Amazon and Disney. These people do these series. People are thinking that they want to get into characters. They want to get into locations. They want to get into a familiar atmosphere of an hour. Long sort of Netflix series as opposed to seeing a movie. So that's something and I think that's reflecting back into the publishing. Trade sent me the Commercial Fiction Publishing Trade I'm involved in the Thriller Publishing Trade say the first in the series was manon ice. But there's another there's another called man on edge and I think I'm not sure why we call it man. I think it was because we met on Isis sort of double entendre is that you know he's actually making a trek across the ice as part of the adventure but it's also mankind on ice and the other one is man on edge which is mankind age well and we had the US Russian border from an on ice edge. We go on the NATO Norwegian Russian border so in a way I sort of book ended those two sides of Russia same characters their same sort of four characters. That are that are very big. Break has a off fiancee's girlfriend who they sort of very good together in conflict zones. They're not so good together when it comes to the suburban live from the white picket fence and that sort of thing henning that I put the politics the same sort of politics that went into democracy kills that went into Asian waters. Sort of underpins. These what these characters are up against so I did a lot of research into what Russia is doing in the Arctic and a set ice melts the Russia. The there are now much more commercial shipping in the summers going through the Arctic. So to get a ship from Shanghai to Rotterdam or something by twenty thirty or twenty fifty people are thinking that will the experts think you could pretty much have reliable leaving Shanghai such time arriving in Rotterdam at such and such a time so what Russia is doing with the help of China is building the technology that can make that work for them. So China's COSTCO LINE IS PIONEERING. A sort of ice breaking cargo freighter. Russia islands much of that coastline and is putting in military bases to to protect it a little bit like what China's doing in the South China Sea is making claims to international territory to make sure that it's got control of that whole thing. It recently said that pilots these these navigators that go on board a ship when it screened only Russian pilots can be on the ships going through the Arctic and ever in the states the people the politicians in Congress that sort of look at this at tearing hair out. Because nobody's taking notice so Ladimir Putin has said the Arctic is Russia's future and the spending billions on militarizing it and the rest of it China's spending billions on technology and getting the trade routes sorted out there and the Americans they don't even have a deep water port up in Alaska. I mean they. They just have coastguard ships and visiting ships and this is becoming a huge controversy in Washington. I wish we delve into the meat of the books. Which are very thrilling. Very exciting and unexpected and with such A. It's obviously such kind of well. Grounded knowledge of everything that goes on behind. But we've run out of time. Have we really? That was quick. Free thank you so much. So the publisher of those two books man on edge and man on ice is seven house overlook press does your nonfiction and. I hope that you'll be back to talk about that in in the future. Thanks so much for having me listening to meet the writers. Thanks to the production team of nor whole and Charlie German.

"Am sorry mistakes who have taken to the airport? Now they were very polite and diffident. But you know you're here illegally and I said yes but I. I'm about to see the Indian high. Commissioner in India was like the colonial boss assure lanker in those days and that sort of set the cat among and I said that's for dinner and then tomorrow I've got lunch with the British High Commissioner. So they all went into a huddle and they came back and they said well if you can leave the day after tomorrow that would be fine and I said but this seats will booked up on the plane. They said don't worry about that. We'll get you a seat on the plane. So that was Howard unfolded. There was no sort of handcuffs or anything that you're in the Balkans in in the nineties and if you arrested in Serbia yes that was a sort of It was an interesting thing in the arrest again. It wasn't but just imagine we're actually getting a lot of it in Britain now. Aren't we so you know the just imagine that Britain's sort of divided up so you'll going from here to Birmingham along the m six but actually some separatist group is cutting off at Oxford or something like that so we were in a car chitchatting as we were going to a place we re Montenegro. Actually which is where that that section of the Kosovo was being. You're able to go and we were driving up safe from London to Birmingham just chitchatting win. The driver had forgotten that this section of the road. They should have gone down a little country lane to go and then suddenly this guy comes out with their guns and everything sort of locks us and they with Serbian please. And we sort of You know we've taken our eye of the ball. We will take into the remember. The name of the town never taken to the Tampa put in this thing and it was It was quite interesting in that. We will wondering whether to core in at the British embassy or something and eleanor instinct. Said no because I had I had a situation resembling the Philippines and I thought that's just GonNa make it worse. Let our local fixes. Who Happen to be two very visitations. Intelligent Young Montenegro and women let them work on the Serbian pleased. And we'll just sit and do nothing for seven hours or eight hours or whatever it was in this room this fan going round like a sort of in a Graham Greene novel and sort of it was purely calendar go on the wall and then there was torn thing and there was a nationalist Serbian symbol. Here there and everything and that was the other had said they were sort of rifles. Being sort of cotton checked in on the record they would come in from time to time and say right. You have to tell us that you admit you as spies. Otherwise you're going to go to Belgrade automatically to prison. And we just said well we'll refer to local producers. Say they'll handle it and then at the end of it they said Okay. You can go and we went there. Were all of these big moments like that. You set up the BBC TV Bureau in China. Yes that was more of a less mood adventure more of a sort of bureaucratic labyrinths to get around but quite inter they had There was a time that the BBC documentaries about Mao Tse Tung and and how bad he was that time in the BBC was basically band and my task was to get not just get a visa to go in and report but also to get a television bureau and Television camera in and I was in Hong Kong going back and forth trying to get this sorted out and being China. It was blocked here blocked blocked there and then there was a Chinese New Year banquet to which the vice foreign minister was coming. And I thought okay. This is how it works. So he was coming in with his entourage people behind and there was about a thousand people and this huge place. He was shaking hands so he shook hands with me. And I said vice-foreign minister. It is a right of course and dude. If if my cameraman comes up to record the success of China and he probably not knowing what I said said yes. Of course. Make sure it happens. Will you and this sort of go back through things and being China? Probably a bit of a face thing a bit of this thing. We did get a visa for cameraman to come in for three weeks four weeks and that just extended and I think they saw the sense of having television crews in there. But I think we're about the I. I think Reuters might have been in that but it wasn't a general sort of thing have it now of course everybody's in yeah well of course but it does mean. Is that China extremely well and in fact one of your books is being republished soon. It's called Asian waters the struggle over the South China Sea and the strategy of Chinese expansion that is published by overlook. Press absolutely fascinating topic and one. That's moving so quickly in the moment. Well that's why we're that's why I've had to update it practically rewrite it and we're we're republishing it like eighteen months. It came out because the version that was. They're focused on the China Building Islands in international waters in the South China Sea. And it's quite a technical thing but what they've done is they've taken this area of the South China Sea which is the main Asian waterway and trillions of dollars of trade. Goes back with some Ford's there every year? Twelve percent of Britain's trade is reliant on those waterways going in and out of there and they've taken islands or rocks. And when I say rocks. Basically the size of this table we're looking at is poking out of the water and they've reclaimed land and they built at least five fully-fledged military bases on them where you can land aircraft ships launch missiles and all that sort of thing so now any vessel going through that waterway is like going through a sort of straight where. You've got Chinese guns radar on that on you. And and then they haven't done anything to stop that trade it wouldn't be in their interest but they control the Straits and then from that you think okay. So what else is China going to do if this is allowed to happen because it breaks all international law and nobody's fired a shot to stop it and all the rest of it so I began looking into okay. So what countries are they trying to control and that an I got to the stage where I looked at Europe and I thought Oh my goodness you know a we had hair hinkley point at one time George Osborne the former chance Lewis saying he wanted Chinese money to build the controversial H S two. I think that they were invited to do Heathrow. And that sort of thing it's as if the whole of Europe was seeing China's this bottomless pit of money but not what it actually was which was an expanding rising autocratic power which operate on a complete different set of values to us. The updated version of that is is taking into account everything that's happened. In a way since since Donald Trump got in because he tended to change you know hey tends to change the landscape of things. But we've now had you know. We've had the hallway decision in Britain whereby we're allowing it in but that's caused direction with the United States. United States is in having it. The European Union issued a statement about a year ago saying that China was systemic. Rival advocating an alternative form of government the values of the European Union. There's a number of other countries that have sort of basically said they don't want any more Chinese money because of all this and now we've got The Hong Kong riots. That problem has been so we've got a million people in Detention Sin Jang. That's that Muslim area up in the Northwest. Which is a sort of separate cultural area where the Chinese government is trying to sort of turn them into good Chinese communists in that and you've got the trade war and now you've got the krona virus so you think you feel sitting up in in Beijing. They have this place called donning high which is a bit like Downing Street or the White House. And that's where everybody's sort of gathered to make decisions feel sitting there single the stuff coming across your desk. You wonder if you've pushed too far too fast. And what eventually is can happen absolutely. Yeah Yeah and your new book will will tell you that. Of course is not your only non-fiction you also wrote democracy kills. What's so good about having the vote? What is so good about having the vote? I would have thought it was essential. You disagree low. I asked the question. I love it if you ask a question. People immediately think that you gotTA viewpoint that was opposed to rock. Book actually came out few years back and it was quite controversial particularly as for the question that you just asked. It was identified as as me being somebody who was against democracy. The argument in the book is you cannot export the democracy that you and I enjoy here into Iraq and expect this panoply of great things to come down from the heavens. You know like a fair judiciary and non corrupt police force non secular military and Ah TESCO's and all the rest of it you know. We work very hard to get this. And actually when with the brexit stuff going on over the past few years has been a reflection of bad a bit in the trying to reverse the vote and all that sort of stuff but that came out then after that you had the Arab spring whereby you technically had an overthrow dictatorships in Egypt in Tunisia in Libya and almost in Syria. None of that worked. None of it worked so the title of democracy kills is yeah. Democracy is great. But you've got to know how it can work properly. Otherwise people are going to die. And one thing that I get angry about an I went try and portray too much on your show but is it after Iraq failed. We then went ahead when I say we. Britain went ahead and overthrew the dictator in Libya and Libya is now the cause or the transit point for the refugee crisis going into Europe and that has got to let immigration problems and issues in the politicization the rise of the right and all that so these knock on effects of have been quite enormous. You thriller writing is very much informed by all of this knowledge of geopolitics isn't it? I mean they're contemporary and they're set against a great background of politics and and conflict. Yes I've started a new series. They now called it a series. I think this is because of the Netflix and Amazon. Stuff is that you have to. You have a character so during the Ukraine crisis two thousand fourteen twenty-fifty nice to have looked a map. And I thought where is a place that can reflect what is happening in Ukraine but not be with the pack there and this is essentially a rusher against European America issues so I looked at the Times Atlas that I still have. I looked at looked at the US. Russia border. Which I had never looked at before and I thought right. These two super passive got a huge massive border and there are two islands there one Russian and one American barely two miles apart and. I don't know how much you your listeners might remember Sarah Palin as vice presidential candidate got herself into hot water when she said Americans can see Russia from their backyard and she was completely and utterly ties to over it and I listened to that interview. She's absolutely right because I went to that island and their at Eskimos. They call themselves Eskimos at native American inured estimates. Live there and they. It's it's a rock like that and that their houses crawl up the hill. And you get up in the morning you open them a new Russian military base on the other side. If you have a pair of binoculars you can see the watchtowers. Under which that looking at America I did a piece of the BBC on it and it was quite interesting. It was almost as if these two super pass deliberately. Want to keep this border quiet. All the other stuff is in Europe. That's quiet and I thought well I'VE GOT TO HAVE A. I gotTA start a Thrill. There said my the hero of my thrilla series. Menkaure Cassandra actually comes from that island. Which is got me into a bit of hot water in a way in that I have to keep him going but we always have to keep referring back to this remote island in the Bering Strait on the US. Russian border. Not before that you'd written a number of standalone thrillers. What's the advantage of having a character that goes through several books? I think the the commercial advantage is that if somebody picks up Raycatena Book Faw which hasn't been written and reads it the first time in likes it. They will then do one two three. So there's if you look at this. The author statistics is the author recognition and character recognition of the to. Sort of big draws. If you have a standalone firstly you could have author recognition on that but you don't have character recognition and as a writer you have to create your own mind a different batch of credible characters.

We welcome and also a commentator broadcaster whose work has taken him all over the world to Beijing Hong Kong Manila Deli Colombo his global perspective and insight into the inner workings of geopolitics shown in his writing from the threat of global nuclear war secret agents in Moscow under growing influence in China he also writes wonderful Thrillers Humphrey Hawksley. Welcome to meet the rices. Thank you great to be here. Let's start right at the beginning because you grew up in slick. Yes and I still go there a lot. In fact I go that to write my books in Suffolk and I grew up in around in Bursa it admits and then sex Monday. Sort of inland on the coast. And if the past ten or fifteen years I do most of my writing on the coast. Just north of tangled albro which people know for its music festival from Benjamin Britten but more recently the bookshop. There John and Mary James started up a festival in. There's a documentary festival says become quite a sort of gathering place but from the place that I have which is a lovely place right on the. See if you're looking out to the sea and you look math. Juicy Sizewell nuclear power stations. The big sort of dome that and then if you look right on a clear day you see the masts sticking out from awkwardness. And that was the early warning. Signs in the sixties from the Soviet Union is going to launch a nuclear attack on us and we were told then that you had ninety seconds or something to sort of get undercover. Not that that would do anything but I think you know. That patch of Britain was then being guarded by these moths. Stick up there. They of course they're not used anymore but in its now owned by the National Trust but it was a very secret nuclear cold war establishment and to have both of these within six. So if you're writing a sort of you know the international thriller or something said Walkout say what today where you that there and that there and it'll sort of comes in together as a child growing up I remember size will a I think was the first one was being built there and we went around it around the building side of had cut. Remember how that happened. This is a school kid. And now of course that took about size we'll see in this will sosa protests and and and that sort of thing and actually there was a time a few years back that something dropped through the letterbox and they were handing out potassium tablets for anybody who lived within a mile or two miles radius of size. Will God knows why but that was a tent just outside the station where people were queuing up to get potassium tablets which apparently sort of lesson radiation impacts if. There's a leak. I can't remember what it was about but there must be some sort of nuclear scare or or just keep doing your medical in case something goes wrong. This This I'm going to call it fixation. That's probably too strong. A word on international travel started very early. Because you actually joined the merchant navy. Yes I guess I didn't know then or do we ever know why we do things when we're seventeen years old but now. I think it must have been in my DNA. And I you know when you fill in these forms. Good University in everything. I couldn't quite see what why. And and and you know extension of school or something. So I gotta with a schoolmate. Actually we got a job on a merchant ship and I north Caria that went from port. Talbot in Wales to Angola and then round up to Japan dropped a place called. Hey Point Australia. Which was in the middle of nowhere? I think probably still is in the middle of more coal mine up in northern Queensland and we we worked around restraint in those days you could just grab they stamped your passport and you get a job so that was. It really hasn't stopped. How did you? How did you make that transition than into journalism? I got came back so I was away that stage. I came back when I was twenty. I think and got a job on. It must've been the worst job I've ever had in my life. It was down in colliers wood. Which is sort of right in south London? It paid me. I think it was paying less than a thousand pounds a year back then. The winter of discontent was happening. And it was a company called Ben Bravo's which I think has some linked to Tony Bennett politician. But I was working on something called Gifts magazine so I sat in this office in the middle of this dreadful part of London. I thought it was the state writing press releases says about onyx Ashtrays and that sort of thing and and something I just stick with it. Just stick with it and things will happen and they actually had another magazine. Who Printing world that. I moved onto one of the editors on that job with the local newspaper near Manchester Congleton Chronicle and then that in those days was the path towards getting onto fleet street. They still think they do. Even though there were no newspapers. Nothing there do we. Did you work for on Fleet Street? Fleet Street there was a place called the fleet street news agency which was run by a sort of very wide character and he would send us out to do the stores. The tabloids wouldn't do so if there was a murder or something we had to somehow get into the fat and get the photographs of victims. And so the we had to do the stakeouts that would last. I remember once I walked the news editor. Shit Humphry. How's your bladder and I said well you know I never really thought about much is. You've got to stand outside. It was his place here. Actually where Jeremy? Thorpe's lawyer was during that trial dinner. You stand out said that until you see him walk in the door and then you file the copy that he's walked into his lawyer. I was at thirteen hours until I got really. It was that sort of job but it was great because it got you into you know the all of the main newspapers in that got into but they didn't pay anything and you had to have a car. That was a condition for having. You have a car and you had to get the story. I so I had this call that I couldn't afford to run so it had bold toys on it and then to get the story. I I had a stack of parking tickets which they wouldn't pay either. You know that was an I suddenly looked. I said I can't continue living lightness so I had a friend that I've met through a store. I did ran a horse transport company Arush racehorses and he said well you know if you want to go straight you can train to be a horse trainer and we'll get your little fights to a straight acid. What gotTa be better than this so I did that and we flew with hall horses. You fly backwards so instead of going sort of to Dubai and Sydney will whatever it. Is You fly Canada. Because they don't get so much jetlag and so. We flew to Sydney for nothing and I helped look after the horses and I got in touch with the newspaper. There called the Melbourne Herald which was like the Evening Standard. I write in with my CV and everything and the guy says brings up and says are Humphry a S. Really good to hear from you coming from Fleet Street. Sorry we can't really off you much because we don't all you but do you. WanNa start on Monday. And he's named the name. The salary was four times what I was getting in London and I. I rent myself a beautiful apartment in the most fashionable part of Melbourne. And haven't looked back. What a wonderful story. Why then would you join the BBC and come back to? That's a good question and that was a wonderful job but there was something that whole thing that that I didn't fill in that university form that I thought well you know. Australia's good but I really need to get to Asia or something so I was a year there and then I went to Hong Kong where I did the Hong Kong South China Morning Post papers. There's about two or three years in Hong Kong and then I was about to get on the plane to go back to Australia and something said now. It's a smaller. See a relief to go back to my. You know my families in London so I came back and started shifting on the male and the this and the BBC is will be shifts just lasted and then they took me on as a sub editor in the radio for news room. Which again was one of the most mind destroying jobs I've had if you're that low down because you've got to you know they give you something to write the queues. You know the cues to the peace newsroom. Goes like to send two or three sentences and you had three hours to write it in so I just got in a given the sort of stuff I doing but I get I said stick with it and I did. And actually you know. Bbc's a great organization and you went on to have a very illustrious career that tell us what you did for for the corporation were from there. I it was. It was a sort of maize and it even was when I went off staff there a few years back stilted anything worked or where. The money was who was making decisions. I didn't think anybody does it? Just sort of keeps producing really quite good stuff. But I went from from that job. I took a job on local radio in order to get broadcasting experience. Get the microphone.

How much we owed the store and then put it up on the wall behind them so that everyone can see and there were multiple seats with our names on them by Humphrey Humphrey Humphrey Humphrey all this morning we owed as. Experiences like That's were light. The engine Nestle keeps me going in the space. Wow so you do a phenomenal amount of work. You've got so many different projects on the Gar and. If anyone wants to find out more because we're not going to be able to cover them all today. I recommend having look at Shawn's websites and that will be in the Sharon arts, but you will go down a rabbit Warren of really interesting websites and projects and ideas and the way they all come together in fit together. It's really fascinating to me, but I want to talk about one of them in particular this side. Side Keith manifest start. Can you tell us what it is? I guess the best way to think about is like. It's a numerous of all the mistakes that I made in my work. Super Junior's my students in Iran a microphone institution at Honduras I so am the board. Directors of organization works a former students at university. He launched it while I was there and so he and I. I've been with the entire time. But in that time of ten years of my students that I work in Honduras, just in terms of like all the mistakes we made in these things I felt like just needs to be articulated in terms like what exactly is. Our role is sort of the idea of like this is how complex process of is. It's a long term process US. What's the process? A process that is really a process of collective action were people from various backgrounds of different groups come together to put four to policy or support a policy to move their own committee Ford. It's historically anchored process in the sense that the policies that our society or committee decides before with the help them new develop throwing community. Really that policy as a function of what has been happening in the past as well and so we're talking about genie's long. You Know Hundred Years of history that anchor Sandra particular pass on the path defendant process I was trained as comic development of Communists and so my my mentor Doug North is his work, but I take his work, and then think about our role when I looked at myself and my students Mike, had anyone ever ended are in poverty? No, so why would we assume we even know how to end another communities poverty in this thing about numerous all. All different things that we don't have we don't vote Russians. We don't pay their taxes. We don't speak their language. We don't know the culture were there for short duration of time you take all that really pay any combat to the actual process, which is a long term process, a process that is anchored in a culture and a community in a history which we don't share. Why would we ever imagine that? We could end another communities poverty? The economic development process should be locally driven process process led by local communities, not outsiders like ourselves, so it has been set up is. You know from our perspective is I gates a top down process where a bunch of usually Whiteman. In consoles in Western countries, dictate or tell us what the process should be in the second manifestos goes through the process, saying okay, these promises that we should make if we want to take this role as a psychic instead of being a hero in the process one thing. I love about what you've written on this I'd kick..

"Humphrey is here to help us navigate our devices during this critical time in step I know you've worked remotely so what are some of the tips you have for video conferences which are so popular right now yeah yeah so video conferences top three things test your equipment far so you wanna make sure that your Mike and your speakers are working you also want to familiarize yourself with whatever software your company is using so that you know how to use it that's the first thing headphones are key you really want as clean as audio as you can get and then you yourself if you're not speaking I know it's going to be tough these days to maybe find a quiet place in your house so if that's not the case make sure you're just needing yourself when you're not speaking also if you don't need the video turn the video off we saw that viral video this week of of a woman who unfortunately took her phone into the restroom so you want to make sure they were not happy situations like that you also want to make sure your own wifi if possible if you're on your smartphone though make sure you're somewhere that you're getting a really strong cell signal and finally make sure you're looking at the camera I know a lot of people tend to look at the screen when the video conferencing instead of the camera and it makes a difference you want to keep that connection with your teammates via video conference as well are you mention wifi obviously it's important you're working from home so any tips on how to get the best connection especially when a lot of people are on wifi in your home at one time yeah yeah well it might be as simple as moving your router you don't want to have your router next to any large metal objects in your home and you don't want to have it next to any appliances that emit electromagnetic signals so you really don't want your router right next your television which is where a lot of people keep it were right next to that place where everybody charges there for owns or right next to a heater or anything like that so maybe just moving the router to a different place in the house might help with that you can also make sure that the firmware is updated so you'll need to go to the website of your internet service provider and log in there to make sure you're using the most up to date firmware you also could change the channel on the router or the frequency you can do that on the website of your internet service provider as well or you can invest in boosters repeaters extenders they all kind of do the same thing which is to amplify the signal around your home if you have any dead spots or you can just really got to redo your network all together and create a mesh network that will sort of replace your router and cover every area of your home and one simple thing that you can do is make sure you have a strong password because there could be some folks next door or a couple doors down that are stealing your wifi and and weakening that signal as well yeah that's a good point especially in apartment buildings now I love this next tip because we're all used to communicating with each other our co workers face to face sometimes things get lost in translation when you're doing this remotely so give us some of the rules for remote communication between co workers well think about what you need to communicate if it's something that is company sensitive or maybe a little bit negative you may not necessarily want to send that via email you want to pick up the phone and have a call around that because depending on whether or not you actually log into your works network or something like that your your security might be compromised so you wanna make sure that you're not having any conversations over your own wifi that might get compromise also be respectful of others time you know we're home everybody's home now you know people are home so you may tend to want to communicate that with them whenever you get ready and maybe it might be outside of office hours so you want to be respectful of other people's time you also don't want to inundate your coworkers with messages and that it might be a good idea to if you don't already have them if your company doesn't already have them she suggests that you establish some rules of communication I know this whole thing working from home is new for a lot of people say you may not be familiar with what the company rules are there may not be any in place that that work for the for the new normal that we're dealing with right now all right these are all great great tips Stephanie Humphrey thank you so much for being with us today all right we're checking in now with Dr Jen Ashton Dr Jen a lot of people still asking so many questions about testing who should get tested how and where our tests available so when you talk about testing Amy we have to remember there's two big components the need to test as many people as possible including those who don't have symptoms that's kind of the holy grail because that's how we get a real handle on how common this is in our society in our country we're not there yet that's going to involve some blood testing that's going to involve finger pricks as we call point of care testing so we can get results in fifteen minutes and the gold standard which is the P. C. R. swab which can take days right now so that part of it is test as many people as we can the other part is that right now especially in hot spot areas if you have mild symptoms and you go to get a test number one that you use valuable resources like pee pees and expose health care workers to rest and if you don't have corona virus you put yourself at risk because by definition the people who are showing up to get tested are generally those with symptoms so we really need to reconcile these two areas that we need to do it quickly all right Dr Jan you'll.
