The Plague of Justinian I
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a very dark moment in church history and history the plague of Justinian. The first first let's talk about just in the first he was born in four eighty seven. He came to be Roman emperor in five, twenty seven and he reigned until his death in five sixty three at the time of becoming Roman emperor the barbarian tribes controlled much of what was the Roman Empire The ostrogoths controlled Rome in the boot of Italy that extends down into the Mediterranean Sea the visigoths controlled Spain, the vandals controlled what was formerly North Africa the Roman empire was a fraction and a mere shadow of its former self just Indian ruled from capital at Constantinople. He was determined to bring back the glory that once was the Roman Empire. To do so he would need to launch military campaigns to the east into the Iberian Peninsula to the south and the vandals to the West and the ostrogoths into the north. He had to launch military campaign literally in every direction. And he was very successful after a decade or so of military campaigns warfare. Then in five forty, two Justin faced a new invisible enemy. Well, we'll get to that in a moment first a few more points on just in the first, he is known as giving us the Codex Justinian us it's also sometimes called the Corpus juris civilised. This is the body of civil law. Someone took the time to count it. It's somewhere around the neighborhood one million words. It was a massive rule of law to govern the Roman Empire contains laws on criminal and civil matters on trade, but it also controls laws regarding heresy and Orthodoxy, and even laws regulating paganism. Another thing about just in the first is that he is the creator of the Huggy Sophia he was not the architect though he had significant conversations with the architect and was very influential in the plans but it was under his watch that the Haganah Sophie was built from five, thirty, two to five, thirty seven the old basilica had fallen during riots in that city and just in use the occasion to build what was the biggest church the Roman Empire ever saw its length was two, hundred, sixty, nine feet. Its width was two hundred and forty feet and extended a height of one hundred and eighty feet. It was a massive structure. The HAGIA Sofia. Well, that's just any in the first. Now, briefly on his plague in five, forty to the bubonic plague broke out. This is the your cineas pestis. What came to be known as the black plague. It would come again in the thirteen hundreds and it would manifest throughout the Middle Ages and the time of the reformation. Back in five, forty, two, it is believed to have started in Egypt. This plague then carried on merchant ships too many nations and to three continents. Africa Europe Asia it is credited as the first pandemic in recorded history. It brought all of the efforts of Justinian one to a stop it ended the military campaigns devastated the economy. It ended up killing millions at its height. It would take five thousand lives a day in the city of Constantinople alone. Even. Just any in the first contract. Did it. But he survives one of the stories from that time PRA copious notes of the effect of the plague on the people it caused them to shake off the unrighteousness of their daily lives and practice the duties of religion with diligence but sadly, he also notes. That as soon as they were rid of the disease, they went right back to their old ways. Well, that's just any in the first, and that's the justinian plague five, forty two

The Hidden Gem That Is Uruguay With Karen Higgs
"Hel Lo travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Sherry, and joining me today is someone who used to sing sixties covers in the psychedelic rock bar and Costa Rica whose hometown is roughly eight thousand miles from where she now lives and who is the only urguay guidebook. Lives they're carrying Hague's from Guru, Guay Dot Com Karen, thanks for joining me and a huge. Welcome. I was so excited to hear what you're going to take out of my via. Those good with those those. Highlights there. Right I. Love that I mean I think you're probably the only person. I've ever introduced that sung sixties covers in the Psychedelic Rock Barn Costa Rica Wall the only one who's intro involved. I'm sure other guests have done it because who has right? Exactly that's kind of par for the course if you're a traveler I want to start out, could you were talking about one of my favorite countries in the world but somewhere, I've never been so little known fact or maybe not that little known if you used to follow way back in the day. Karen I said that my two favourite countries in the world were Slovenia an Erg Urguay but I had never been to either one I've now been to Slovenia but I haven't been to. Uruguay. So I am very excited to chat with you I'm I'm totally shocked what why Uruguay can I ask my? So I think just when I started traveling, I looked at a map and was like, don't like what I'm taking I was kind of like entire nation is going to be taken back. There you go. I looked at a map and I remember thinking. Like where are the hidden gems? Hidden Gems when they travel and so oh, Brazil Argentina and I remember I and I liked soccer slash football and. Howard now I'm understanding more. Colors, the light blue I like Diego Forlan, and so I just remember thinking that would be a coup country to go because everyone goes to Argentina everyone goes to Brazil. I want to go there and Slovenia same kind of thing this tiny country tucked in amongst kind what you would call like tourist powerhouses of Italy and stuff like that and. Yeah I just so for me, it was like those are the two that I just I thought they use are going to be it and have been something. We haven't made it yet. Then that is a good question well. Yet to give you a little bit of background, my wife and I wanted to come to South America for quite a while. So let's say five six years where we've really been like South America let's go. We've still never touch the continent. One of the reasons was we are not and naturally very cautious people but because we were trying to have kids and Zeke was happening and all that kind of stuff especially down in Brazil we kind of thought well, we can put it off like if we don't have to go and I know Uruguay was not Zico hotbed. But of course, if we go there, we wanted to go to Argentina Brazil. So we kinda just kept putting it off, putting it off, putting it off. And now we're recording during covert times if you're listening in the future hopefully, you're out of it by then. But yeah. Now, of course, as an American can't really go there. So. I would have if you had spoken to me five or six years ago than I would have said to you that you have to come anyway for your entire vacations to Uruguay 'cause there's so much to do and enough of people thinking that it says side from Argentina or Brazil. Okay. So I would have said that immediately and I also would have said to you that you know Zeka. Zero cases here and that Uruguay has great public health policies, and in fact, right now we are kind of like one the stock countries in Latin America regarding the virus
The ECBs Former Vice-President Explains The Historic Step That Europe Just Took
"True CEOS thinking we don't really talk that much about Europe these days. I mean, I guess not in relation to the the heady days of the eurozone debt crisis. Now we don't, but also I feel like this particular crisis at least some of our episodes, you know, obviously, we talk a lot in the bed context the US context, of course, know talked about Hong Kong and Asia and Asia supply chains in China and so forth stills like we've focused a little bit less on how this current crisis is playing out in the Europe. Yeah I think that's right I. Guess the implication is that maybe this has been unfair in some respects because there has actually been something very interesting going on in Europe at the moment. Yeah. I mean, for one thing you know there's a good argument to be made Europe at least relative to the US, if not necessarily Asian countries has done a pretty decent job overall of suppressing the virus self and you know for years during the euro area crisis, they're always people fiscal policy. Fiscal Policy Missing. You gotta spend more gotTa get the Germans to spend more and you know maybe this time it looks like they're actually doing. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. So we have the announcement of a big deal seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros worth by the EU to fund on long term recovery. Fund for the Eurozone and that's a big deal because as you point out, everyone's been talking about fiscal stimulus but it looks like the euro-zone is finally going ahead and doing it. Right and so this of course raises questions and it's a theme that we've definitely had a lot on on our podcast, which is, is this offer something bigger for the post-crisis period? So sports, it's well known that know there's a lot of money being spent by governments all around the world including the US. But the question mark is okay when the crisis phase is over the government's just retrench or does this become a sort of new macroeconomic stabilization model? That's a theme that we've had dozens of times but it's particularly important to New York, in context I think because people have sort of identified the lack of fiscal burden sharing his sort of a basic architectural tension or flaw within. Euros. Yeah I think that's exactly right. How does the I don't want to say the intrusion of fiscal stimulus but how does the arrival of fiscal stimulus on the scene actually reshape the way that monetary policy works and I? Guess we should also mention that the is also in the midst of a of another really important project which is rethinking. How it targets inflation. So we have all of this going on simultaneously real existential questions for the role of the European Central Bank. Absolutely well, I'm very excited. We have a fantastic guest to talk about all of this we are going to be talking with Vito comes don. So he is the former vice president of the European Central Bank from two thousand, Ten may twenty eighteen. He's now a professor at Navarra University in Madrid out the perfect guest to discuss all this. So without further ado, let's bring him in a veto. Thank you very much for joining us. So are you happy to not being a policymaker in this time or you? Do Miss being at the ECB during such an extraordinary moment. Well, it's always difficult to get out of you know executive responsibilities and I. Of course, I would not say that I, am Epi at the out or unfortunate circumstances of the covy. The shock we are again in a very important periods of policy making but. Me Europe as been doing well I think in these episodes. Better than in the previous episode of two, thousand. Ten to two thousand twelve. Just to start out with walking the significance of the deal that was agreed, this seven, hundred, hundred, billion euros you tweeted about it clearly, you think it's important. What's the significance. Well it establishes for president that are very meaningful. In, the first place it involves a decision to issue common European depth. The Commission will issue seven hundred and fifty billion of debt to fund these program, and that's the first. The second the point is that these is going to be distributed in the form of budget transfers and not loans to the country's. Third IT'S A big program to implement Wat- is a European fiscal policy stimulus to address a recessionary phase. India to be an economy, and that's also the first time that these happens at this level and fourth the distribution of the ballot transfers which. Correspond to a little more than half of the seven hundred and fifty billion is done in a way that it is not proportional to the size of each country. By two indeed benefits more the countries that's have lower level of leaving and higher unemployment. So there is a convergence play. There is solidarity aspect of these edits also quite new in terms of transfers to give you two examples on a proportional basis, Italy would be entitled to fifty billion, but the they are getting eighty billion. Right as Germany, you'll be entitled to ninety six billion in proportional terms, but is getting only twenty seven. So these four points put together constitute the indeed very important precedents and babs, and do we all hope so that it will be a sign of things to happen. If again, there will be a stressful situation in the European economy, and that's a very important element for everyone the notion that when there is a very stressful social economic situation Europe, steps up and two x decisions to fight the recession and does not leave behind any of the member countries. It's a big message for the future and I think markets are really beginning to injury injuries what these means And we see that already but it will take time of course, perhaps for the markets by Geico anglo-saxon markets to overcome. Lingering, doubts about the European project.
Public health expert: 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be 'better than what we have now'
"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.
Tibetan Yoga for Health and Wellbeing

I'm really excited to talk about we haven't had anybody on the podcast that is speaking directly to yoga and breath work in the way that you teach install very excited to have you today. Thank you I. You know excited and I, Love Hey House and. That last book of Tibet. The newer for health and wellbeing. This is my passion. So yes, excellent. Excellent. There's a there's a number of things I'd like to talk about with you today including your. Your advice on integrating meditation and Yoga into our everyday life and are busy schedule as well as your work with Yoga and breath work in a clinical medical sending including with your with cancer patients. But I, I like to ask you about how you got here how we got here with you, and maybe we can start with your own yoga and meditation training under your revered teachers in Nepal and India. So can you give us a brief version of of how you began your studies to help us situate where you're learning has is coming from Sure sure. Emmy see how brief I can. So really when with the Tibetan tradition, it really started when I in my first trip to India in nineteen, eighty nine. And I was really looking for teacher. I wasn't sure if it was going to be an Indian teacher Tibetan teacher I was more familiar with the teachers I did get to meet with Yuji Christian motifs of not the famous one JD. Wonderful Yuji Chris for more and more. And then some g my analogy, and then actually when I met the two BETTON SAT in La. It really started inspiring me and particularly the way that. They had this devotion to the picture of its own is a Lama and I have to admit I didn't know too much about His Holiness yet. But then doing the trip. It was when he was. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize I was actually cashier at that time I remember reading that in the US favor now it's like Wow so happy a give my mom. My Dad had been awarded the prize and and and I said, I need to meet this man. In fact that evening they showed on the Indian TV. Heart of Tibet. That I la that was actually the forward or was by pressing Carter. And I. So I went from touch me to down silos where the Delilah was. It was. During that time, he was the fortieth anniversary of the children village. That's the first time I saw him talk. Then I went for you know a public interview and I kind of. was trying to be there as much as I could and at the same time I got my first. Personal teacher, which was you should origin. Bodies, Yogi. And he was particularly into the tradition of true and. Whether he was the Weatherman for the Dalai Lama. and. I started training with them I. Did my longer with him or started the non right ended up seventy slater finishing That really led me to come back towards t Tina where I'm originally from. And really start devoting a lot of time to practice and then was in ninety one that. I, I met a number no group chain that he came to Argentina I nine, hundred ninety and I am Alejandra can I can I just mention here that that sort of what you're talking about a little bit is that when the Tibet you mentioned that you met the Delami in in in northern India in Dharamsala. And this is after for our listeners who don't know the when the Dalai Lama a came into exile when he left Bet in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he and about two, hundred thousand. Refugees settled in the northern regions of India and where the Dalai Lama lived was Dharmsala, and so that was one of the first places that you went to in. That is sort of this hub of the Tibetan diaspora that is sort of surrounds the Dalai Lama, and then eventually Tibetans have gone of course throughout the world and there's two. Betton. Buddhist. Centers throughout the world and so you were kind of a beneficiary. You came along in nineteen, eighty, nine, nineteen ninety and started studying with some of these teachers who weren't only in India around the dilemma. But who had gone elsewhere you mentioned non-pwi Norbu Rhumba Jay who had gone to to Italy, and then there were other centers where you were living in Argentina. Yes, and so I. I did consider you know for for some time Don, Sala my second home I spend many months there. And that's where actually ish adorned pitches monastery wall. So. As, you said Dharamsala was this hub and I really considered my second home. I spent many months there intermittently going from there to other places and back, and that is really were you had his monastery and and. So meeting the Dalai Lama and trying to be as much as possible with them. But also really having a personal teacher like you should was really important to me so that when I came back to Argentina that I felt there was no one there in luckily I was wrong was a small. Karma Kagyu Center. And also kind of a unique center the first teacher I met when when I go towards. Metering And then Nunca Norman as I mentioned the Nunca over pitcher was a big change for me. In the way he taught. So the Tony Brooke he brought the teachings. Into everyday
Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

Italian Wine Windows Open During Pandemic, Bringing Back Bubonic Plague Tradition
"Say that Fast is a prologue. We can learn a lot from the way we used to do things back in the day, even back in medieval times, Toby and chilly in the morning, 97.1 Washington Here's what Here's What we mean. Wine windows were a thing in Italy back in the day in the Tuscan region Now you went to Italy for a wedding a couple of years ago. Do you remember seeing these wine windows on buildings? Yes, we took a tour of the walled city of Sienna, right, And that was one of the things that the Tour guide first pointed out to us as we were walking down. Stan medieval streets because this city is like a city frozen in time within its city walls. I mean, it's exactly the way it was during the time of the bubonic plague, I believe right, and so they have these little cutouts in houses. We're like, what are those, and she's like, Well, that is where you would knock and the residents would serve the wine. That was a thing. Wine was a universal human rights in Italy back in the day when they were trying to get through that playing well. Now these wine windows air, actually making a comeback. A lot of restaurants and bars are using them again because of Corona virus, and it's a great way to Show up with an empty bottle. Have someone's hand pop out of the wine window and Philip your bottle with Savino. They're also doing gelato this way and coffee this way, and the pictures are fantastic. I wish we had some around here. We do need to get some around here. So how can we make this a thing? Say in Potomac or Great falls, or perhaps maybe out in Lorton? How could we make this a thing? Now? What could argue Toby that in medieval times they were the ones who originated the drive thru because it is like a medieval drive thru window except you're walking by. I just love the fact that back in medieval times to get through a plague. Everybody came together and served wine to anyone who needed it. All you had to do was knock. See even back then fermented grape juice helped people get through a pandemic, just like it is right now. And so if there's anybody who's had any feelings of guilt, because maybe they've over, indulged a bit too much while in the middle of a zoom meeting, and maybe they've had friends call you out on your consumption of said wine remind them that generations ago in the Tuscan region of Italy People used wine to get through these unprecedented times. A past is indeed a prologue
Healing From COVID-19
"Debbie Masar is an actress that you might recognize from the movie goodfellas. Less take it. Easy. Or entourage for younger sometimes lines the people you love best is the most loving. You can do you sound like a twisted fortune cookie. except. So, I reached out to Debbie when I thought I was sick and she immediately called the. She was one of the first people that I had seen posting publicly about being sick with covid nineteen. I don't know if she realized how important it was for me to hear from somebody who actually had it. So I wanted to reconnect with Debbie now that we've both recovered and I called her identity I'm Maria joining from Brooklyn. Yes. So officially welcomed in the thick and. We're talking about surviving in battling cove it and I remember when I first got sick. I. Was having a lot of anger and denial and anxiety and rage. You told me that this thing was gonna come in waves that I needed to be prepared. You told me at that point you were already in recovery and you're like I'm cleaning all the time and I was like, Oh my God, how can she even lift her arm? And so I'm wondering what was it that made? You understand how important it would be for you to. Talk to someone like me when I started to feel really sick it didn't feel like anything that I ever had before it was kind of weird and it was a collective thing that was happening in my house all at once with all of my family members, I always feel like it takes a village. I actually had people that were having similar symptoms as me and getting sick at the same time as me and we sort of formed this. Co vid nineteen like reach out center to each other going Oh my God I haven't have you got an oxy meter. Have you taken this herb? A lot of people are just suggesting things and things that they thought might help them but I really was so grateful for actually people reaching out to me that I'm also kind mommy like that like when people get it and they're confused. Because I had gone through it is well, I just wanted to be there for you and I had talked it on my instagram because there were no people talking about it and I remember you saying that you were getting backlash and so what was that like Debbie to not only get this but then you're very open hearted person people were coming at you during this may first of all, I was being told by my doctors that I know that I'm friendly with I'm sorry. Jeb. But I only have a couple of tests that were given to me and you just don't fit the criteria and I thought to myself. I'm taking the subway two to three times a day. I was in Italy, all of December and part of January I've been on airplanes. How do I not meet criteria? I have every symptom so we will when people started coming on. Instagram I mean first of all, this disease has been politicized at this point, which is wrong. So I, just felt there was an incredible. Amount of ignorance of arrogance of denial of people going like you know Oh. Gosh. You know it's only for like the people in. You know nursing homes. So you know like you when I see what's happening in the rest of the country where my heart. Goes you and I? We did. We survived there's definitely an awareness of kind of survivor's guilt for sure. I don't have any guilt. I'm thrilled. A great way to. End. It. There's no guilt here because I thought I would die my lungs are not the strongest they never have been since child I have chronic bronchitis. I've been a smoker most of my life and I had pneumonia a few years ago. So I thought I was going to die and I, have a family I have a lust for life and I hate needles because I survive I went and gave a huge bag of my convalescent plasma. I try to spread the word because this is far from over. People need to buckle up because it's going to be a rough road and we need the tools to know to be getting tested. Not think that because you have the antibodies necessarily that you're safe when you do get sick what are the things that can help you

The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you.

Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the

"italy" Discussed on Talking Politics
"Is the government's popularity starting to wane. Yeah so that's that's an interesting question because the answer is I'm afraid. Yes or no so no because if you look at polls he's still scoring fairly well. He's still very popular historical to there to be to have if enclosed ask how the craziest has managed at the national level. People still seem to be happy with the government. Yes because if you don't look at the polls and if you only look at a political debate it definitely got much more heated and there have been Series of low blows between the government and your position in the past two three weeks so we can really start seeing how the future is going to look like so once the acute phase of emergencies over and the reopening starts. I don't think that the government will be able to enjoy a high level of of confidence from deflation. Savini has gone into full attack mode so that will have its effects. I I assume and NAS time you said that. The Beginnings of real political contestation was Rome versus the regions and regional politicians. Who were really pushing back against. Some of the national management of this is that still the case is is there still a clear national buses local divide? Yes it is even though there are few differences. I think so. Actually a few days after we recorded last episode the president of the Vanity region which is the region of Venice which by far has been region that dealt best with the virus so they started having the virus exactly the same day as Number D probably has your cases to stocked with but they managed to flatten the curve as we have learned to to say very very quickly and manage not to overwhelm their hospitals and indeed that region is opening up this Monday so they have autonomously decided to open up before the rest of the country without dissent of row and one week after we recorded the podcast. The president of that region said as soon as this is over my number one request will be automated so there. There is a clear political agenda of northern region going fool on for autonomy against throng having said that if needs to be said that the lumbar region which has always been the stronghold of the Northern League. It's the region worse from which Cellini comes. It's original Milan. So it's traditionally historically the strongest region in the country economically most flourishing region etc. They did very very badly in the crisis and that became clear week after week after week and their management which is old if you want to top guys from the Northern League so Venus acolytes. They've done horribly. And this is clear. That's under the eye of everybody at the moment and there is there has been growing opposition from the population inside the region against the League. And in general the region government and that'll scores has weakened their claim dwell ptolemy yet at the same time has forced them to ramp up conflict against governments rights. Because will never failures are highlighted. The response of the region and government is to say. Well this is Rome's fold. It's not our fault we wanted to do. Otherwise but wrong. Didn't let us so. I think this is interesting. Because he has the conflict withdrawn continues but the two main regions the two most important northern regions to regions governed by the league. They reacted very differently. So one was very successful at managing the virus and want autonomy on the basis of its success. The other failed that managing the virus wants autonomies on the basis of its failure by blaming the failure on road and autonomy here means what exactly is not as it were independence. No no it doesn't know. The League has moved on from demanding full independence but what autonomy means is mostly fiscal autonomy. Which then would imply autonomous decision making powers on everything that has to health which was ready to case to a great extent and education as well as if if this fiscal autonomy on how to spend the money raised through station. So that's basically what they want. They want their money to stay in the region and they want to decide how to use it within the region. Come on in the second to the in a way the big question which is evolving Italian US cheat to Europe the EU and the euro. Because I think a lot has moved on that since we last spoke but just one more regional thing. There was a very interesting article in New York Times. Which did the thing that I did last time in. You corrected me. Full Making Account north-south question because that leads out middle but the this is a really acute crisis. Full the south in a different way than it is for other parts of Italy. It's a sort of almost trap on that account because the lockdown is having devastating economic effects in a very pool region. They're very poor. Parts of the south. That comedy Wittstein this and at the same time. Healthcare in those places is much weaker. Much more vulnerable to being overwhelmed whether disease to tackle so. There's a kind of dilemma for both politicians and populations in the south where she's more acute on this account in the north. They can't tolerate the lockdown and they can't risk what happened in the north in terms of the virus happening in the south. Was that an accurate report. There's in places like Sicily elsewhere. There's something even more acute going on. Yes I think that's accurate and it is interesting again because it's a completely different crisis right. So they have been relatively speaking spared by the virus. They had a few cases that nothing not even close to what's happening. The North the has emergency touched him only to limited extent. But what happens that the lockdown and in general the global the global lockdown. Not only. The national lockdown will have very strong effects in terms of flake economic and social life of the south. That's because these regions live off tourism. Not only to is of course but tourism and everything that that that works are on tourism so restaurants museums etc accounts for a big chunk of their income. And of course this will be gone for the foreseeable future and on top of that. The other problem is that there is a widespread problem in the south. Which is that. Many people work illegally. They do have jobs. This jobs are not registered with the state's Hanson do not pay taxes hence they cannot receive state subsidies now that everything is shutdown which of course has brought manufacturers families that would normally have regular income to poverty and this became evident A couple of weeks. After the lockdown started when a few supermarkets where raided and assaulted in the saw one I think was in Palermo. Fortunately these attacks and assaults have not repeated themselves. They didn't happen again but it is true that there is widespread concern and anger coming from the south at the basically the socioeconomic off the lockdown. And this is especially true if you think that on. May fourth when the lockdown is lifted. The North will reopen its industries and although they will be struggling work will start again. What in the South? That's that's unlikely to happen. And if on top of all this you add the fact that the south is quite happy permeated by organized crime. There is a real sense of danger that this situation in which a big chunk of the southern appropriation is not getting money from the government. We accept money from organized crime so this is really a breeding ground for even further development over organized crime which makes tuition particularly dangerous. Anything that going back to what we were saying earlier. It's becoming clearer and clearer that this is going to be a double constitutional crisis for Italy in which it's not north-versus-south but it's the center squeeze between the demands of the north and the demands of the south which are diametrically opposed so the north will be demanding more autonomy which means as I just said keep the money it produces or raises Itself and the south will be demanding off road much more presence and much more redistribution of wet so the North will want to keep it money and the south will ask Rome to give it money and of course. We're it's not clear where Rome we get this money from each north gets it just only so it's really a. It will reveal fundamental problem of Italian politics. Which is a problem. That was born with Italian unification. Which is that the north. The South end a sentence as have never managed to really unify an moments of crisis. This differences become much more evidence while so it is almost like the perfect storm and then it is a reflection of the European question in microcosm because the other thing that's going on here is the question of redistribution at the European level and aligned standard. One thing that has really moved on since we last spoke is anger directed towards European institutions and then to particular European countries that are seen to be either blocking aid for it. Lay off setting like outrageous terms learning clear out with more debt. I mean that's the story of this week. We took him as a lot about on this. Podcast the corona bonds question. Clearly going to be eight and support for Italy in reconstruction but the terms on which that is given an the sense in Italy that this is coming with lots and lots of strings attached. That is fuelling euroscepticism as we'd call it isn't it? Yes absolutely I mean Italy. I think that since twenty seven the attitude of Italy towards the European Union has been getting worse and worse and worse and of course in two thousand eleven when the Monte government was installed There was a sense of hopefulness in which you know following you. Rules would mean the end of corruption. The end of Bruce Kony's reckless suspending. But then that sense of hopefulness that was sparked by two thousand eleven faded away and instead what you start getting was the result of austerity so more and more euro-scepticism more and more opposition to policies especially financial and fiscal policies. Coming from to you and this has just exploded now it has exploded for for obvious reasons in the sense that what they use offering is clearly not good enough and especially some of the rhetoric that came with this type of debates in Brussels Roy damaging in terms of Italian opinion about Du u Famous sentences by Dutch minister saying that we are just. The Italians are just lazy and of course we cannot deal with the crisis that just because we never manage to save money this we're of course picked up by the euro-sceptics and over blown out of proportion to make a case against the U. But apart from that what happened. Is that the government itself went full on at least in terms of rhetoric against anything that they you will so of course. They wanted corner bombs which did not happen and they that Konta had a few press conferences or actually speeches to the nation in when she said we are not gonNA allow a replay of the euro crisis. Italy this time with defended toner. So he's he's on tone was very aggressive towards the U. Which of course fourth Savini and Maloney whose leader of these other right-wing party Eurosceptic right-wing Party even further to the populace right. So if if the center she won't if the government itself was using such a strong language against the U. Than THEY HAD TO DOUBLE DOWN. That and this started happening. I think three weeks ago and became even more evident after the last meeting of eurozone finance ministers when they decided that the SIM would be among the packages offered by the European Union and Sylvania's response to that was to tweet in capital letters so an entire tweet in capital letters that the government had sold Italy to the sharks of Brussels and Berlin. Which of course is not is not is not true right. They didn't they didn't they. Didn't sign off for getting. These long suggests agreed that this long that would be available for countries who might want them that no doubt consensus in. Italy's that we should not sign off to this proposal but Savini made it look like the government already did and that sparked an incredibly bitter debate about what Italy's actually doing WTI European Union. That has not come down yet talking. Politics is brought to you in partnership with the London review of books when Conte says we will allow a rerun of euro-zone crisis. What if anything is implied threat? So you can see what he's trying to resist. But what is he threatening to do if he doesn't get his way because Helen would remind us? The constraint of being years member means that your options are incredibly limited. Because I presume there is still no appetite in Italy for coursing the euro under these conditions..
"italy" Discussed on Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast
"So I have mine just because I have so many good memories of Italy but one that comes to mind is just really sticks out was the first trip that we had to Italy and it was when we were in Florence and we stayed in this cute little apartment right near the cathedral and there was a restaurant. That was a couple of doors down. You've loved this restaurant. No I recommend it was pretty good. What was your thing? Oh Madonna eats here when she comes here with her exact quote. The woman who owned The the woman who owned Lucy Lucille. Or something. Like oh you gotta go for nights date right and she was like you gotta go hear Madonna. Each year every time she it was just like four doors down from the but that was the meal wasn't my best memory it was it was an okay meal and the restaurant was nice. But you know it's hard to get reservations in there so I just remember. We had a lot of rain on this trip and it was kind of a rainy night but it was a little bit. It was romantic as we were just kinda wandering the streets and we did go to that restaurant and the ambiance was great. The service was incredible. The food was so again. It depends on what you get on the menu and we had no idea what to order so that was really fun. But what what was the thing that sticks in my mind is then after. We walked around after dinner. Ernie C foreign set night which is beautiful. We get back to our apartment and we can't get in and we have like the key and we're trying to like it's this old old apartment with like an old key like one of those keys that skeleton yeah skulls and key and I could not get in the door and we tried for. I don't know at least five minutes and we're starting to get really nervous. And we don't have data on our own or we can't get a hold of the AIRBNB host and we have like the umbrella. It's raining and finally a policeman walks by and like he can obviously see that we're struggling. He didn't really speak good English. Put ENOUGH THAT. We were kind of like help. We can't get in locked out right you know. We had a key so he obviously knew that we weren't trying to break in or anything but he somehow helped us get the drug. Maybe he had like the special trick of getting into these old buildings but I remember that feeling really anxious but the night was just like so fun and romantic and it was Kinda drizzly but we were together and it. Was you know before we had kids? So it didn't really matter like if we had kids and we're trying to get home like imagine. The chaos that ensued but in that situation. It was just like kind of a fun memoir. That can happen. Nice policemen who helped us. And then we got into our cozy little apartment in. Yeah I didn't I mean I haven't thought about that until that since that night. I mean given a ton everything I says about Florence so I'm going to give Florence on really quick and then pivot a little bit Definitely one of my favorite memories is I mean the eating of Florence but we went on a self guided tour. Because I was I wanted to find the best July and Florence and the first time we went we had gone to j Leterrier Day. Mary and it was my favorite. So Mike is anything better. I did find spoiler alert. There's one as good. They're tied locker. I and J leterrier are the two best but I went and did a ton of research of all the places that people talk about having the best you'll notice there's like ten of them. We did a walking Self guided walking tour and those superfund because I love July and he got us all over parts of the city like I had it mapped out. We just kept popping around seeing seeing errors that we outside not outside of the main tourism but outside of the main main tourist zone in the center. We didn't go too far afield because we walked everywhere and it was just fun. It was cool. Got See different. Parts of the city got to eat awesome Gelato so that was Super Fun and just like I remember. We were doing it for the blog and shooting videos where they're actually never actually put that video out of the of the walking tour. We should find it somewhere on it harder but then if I have to throw something else. I can't get in Rome similar to what you were talking about a very time in Florence when we went to trust story. I think is how you say that little neighborhood. Kinda like the. Yeah across the bridge hip little ECLECTIC neighborhood there. Same thing we were we. Didn't we had a restaurant that we want to? We got to. It was raining but it was actually closed. And so he like just popping around like looking for different restaurants. Cobblestone who is slippery was wet. But we're raining. We had our umbrella so both of us. I guess apparently like rain in Italy. And you just just like wandering around back alleys looking for service dinner. Finally we ended up. It's Kinda crappy pizza. Not Crappy beads a takeout pizza almost like a nice sit down restaurant. It was called like a lease or SOM something. I need something the but the point was that was like. That's kind of how you do the cities in Italy. You just wander boss. You know you're not explore and you know we didn't say this about the most surprising thing but I now thinking about it a little bit. Want to throw this out there. That two of the most surprising things number one was we went to the academy. Ah Influence specifically see David. The sculpture of drew and travelling. Or whatever this is I mean we gotta because we're here by here. We're not huge people. Anyway we went and this statue is one of the most incredible pieces of art I have ever seen. Were not people I mean. I actually really enjoy our end going to museums but I'm not obviously a connoisseur. Anyway it was incredible. I mean the sheer magnitude of this sculpture and like the size the scale. It was really really incredible to see that was really surprising. There have been times in my life that crew member like where the term jaw dropping. Actually is apropos. Meaning you realize that your mouth is open. You're not doing you're just like oh my gosh one. When we round the corner and saw the Grand Canyon for the first time and two when we walked in and walked and just looked up and saw David. I remember thinking why like this is so much better in person. Yeah we've seen pictures like this is so much better in person anything I could imagine it was it was it was impossible is impossible to put into words. It was it was jaw-dropping. Just remember standing there in awe of it. Yeah that's a good one absolutely and then the second thing is also about art but it's going to the Vatican and walking through that and seeing all of the beautiful paintings on the ceilings and on the walls everywhere like some of the things that I studied when I was in college like in our books right and then you're seeing them in real life. That was really something magical sell. Yeah and we were there in January. That really helped. Because it was still you know when you got into. The Sistine Chapel. There are still a lot of people probably one tenth of the amount of people that that would be there normally and the rest of the Vatican was fairly sparsely. Yes touristed and we didn't have to wait in line to get tickets so side note if you're going. Italy for for those kind of things for like the the monuments and the tourist sites highly recommend season winner like we were there in January shoulder seasons. Whether it be nicer would be. We were in Florence in October in Tuscany. And I'm GONNA amazing time. We got like one hundred and twenty five dollars or two hundred and twenty five dollars tickets to Milan from Philadelphia. So that's why we went in January and I W- yeah if you can get cheap tickets. I'd highly recommend going in winter area because there's so many things to do inside you know with all of the art if that's what you want to see in the eating I mean. Obviously you can just do that. Total inside and then if you WANNA see them. Warmer spots like the coast. You could still go in shoulders using go in October. That is a great. We got our our years planned out quarantine so thank you guys for listening. Speaking of quarantined the quarantine. Diaries remember. These are coming out every Monday Wednesday Friday.

"italy" Discussed on Talking Politics
"Decree this big decreed that the government passed in order to inject a lot of cash flow into the economy. It's not clear why he's threatening not to sign it but he's threatening to sign and the president of the Republic had to intervene so that's one line his trying to play out the other argument. He's trying to use is a eurosceptic argument. So he's basically going banging on on video that you see that you is not here we told you the Germans are not willing to share their respiratory devices with us. We had told you all along because it seems that does a slight mixed message as I understood it. One of the reasons he doesn't want to sign the decree is he doesn't want to go down the path. We taught Adam tease about this possible corona bones and the federalization of the European economy. So on the one hand he's saying look we told you the country's going to be sold out to the e bureaucrats when we get in a crisis on the other hand he saying look. We told you when we're in a crisis the other Europeans don't care about. Yeah exactly there is a mixed message. And he's not really articulate it clearly so when he's threatening not to sign this decree he's not really saying I mean if you look at his twitter account he does tweet about the factors getting corona Bonds or accepting money from the M. E. S. is a way of selling telling off the country without say that but that's not exactly the same argument he's giving for not signing the decree ventilators but not money. Your he wants yeah. Yeah but it's it's not clear what he wants. I mean He. He's of course aware that Italy will need a lot of money and it's not clear where he's planning to get it from Still GonNA come from three to nothing. I don't know maybe China. Maybe he's looking at China. The moment that it's politics of that a pretty complicated so the thing. Gotti the PAYDAY leader. So he's now known a little bit outside of Italy as the guy who would have been three weeks ago. I lost track of time when out forbid until people was there any to tell people he was going to go out drinking. And then you go. Yes yes indeed. Of course there was a lot of irony and skepticism about again as you said he was the one who went to Milan. Having a predictive. Oh and then the virus himself but he was so do we hear announced it the way he behaved afterwards was very sober and I think somehow people forgave him for that. Because that's a mistake that everybody made right the mistake of thinking that. This was an overreaction and he's himself and his party have been very quiet throughout the entire crisis. They've only been supportive of the government was doing and I think that people appreciated that and that shows in the fact that again the latest polls show that the Democrat Party has gained two three points in the last two or three weeks so basically sevigny lost these two three points depending on the polls and their Predator democratical gain them so it's the fact that he made that mistake doesn't seem to have had effects on his popularity or on. The popularity of the party was politician. And then I want to ask you about how the rest of the world looks from Italy. The Miot said when we last spoke I rashleigh said five star done. You should never in politics. Make those kinds of statements because you never know where you're going to be in three months time Where five-star now in this I mean that's still in the government for a start. Yes but we'll be tempted to say that you're right no income wrong. You're going to tell you no. I don't think they've done forever. I don't think that's the case. But at the moment they have disappeared completely. So the only voice you hear is the my young. Who's the Minister of Foreign Affairs? And you only hear of him because he's organizing repatriation flights. That's all he's doing well. The other thing he's doing is managing the relationship with China. And of course now. Everybody's looking at China as the sort of details X. Makina giving us machines and face masks and expertise so now we he is coming out of this crisis relatively well but the party is nowhere to be seen really the one last thing. I would like to say before we move on is that there is an interesting new dynamic while it's not really a new dynamic. It's an old dynamic that has come to the forefront recently which is the role of northern regions and the governors of these regions in Italian politics. So I think that now the real political divide is between regions and Rome. This is interesting. Because the regions that are gaining ground and voice our the regency the North Again Lombardi Benneteau Emilia and Piemonte and these are the worst hit regions and three out of four of these regions are run by governors from the League from the League and I think this is interesting because it means two things. The first is that this individual figures. These governors are much more visible and enjoy much more popular support than Salvini does and there has always been attention between Salvini and his nationalistic vision of the Party and the governors of the northern regions. Who on the country don't want nationally sparty but won't autonomy for the regions because these are normally wealthy regions that have a good health system? That have a good weight of compliance from citizens people are paying taxes. They're productive. They're wealthy. They're generally will run so. This crisis is really showing the detention within the league between governors and Salvini so savini. Who doesn't know who has no expertise of really governing anything and regional governors. Who HAVE A lot of expertise? And who are the ones holding on the show? Basically they're the ones who are saving lives if you want to some an exaggerated rhetoric but that's the sort of thirty that's going around so this is one reason why this is interesting and the second reason is because the old tension between the north and the central between the North and Rome has become very important again so again you position is between this northern governors who wants to for example shutdown entire productive activities of the regions and Rome whose find to be more cautious and doesn't want to give them the powers that they want to have anything. This tension between the North and Rome will play out again in the future. Once the the emergencies over. That's really interesting. So is it. So it's new set versus centers not no south. No it's north. It's really north against the rest of the country. Is that for the South? Where but those are the center right. It's it it really is Veneta. Lombard the Piedmont Emilia. So and it's interesting right because there is a Emilia which is as we discussed lit on our last episode on Italy. Mill is run by Bonacina the mechanical so from the centre-left but all this governor also league plus PD. They're working together against Rome. No south divides a confusing. Because as you say they leave out the center there's an assumption a soon as you've left the south you're in the north as in as in England or the UK. That's not true. There's the middle as well China as he said. China is now Dais X. mackinaw a month ago. China was the source of the disease. China was the place that it was the first country to stop. Flights coming in China was the problem. Now China's the solution in some sense. Can you date it? I mean when did it flip? When did it go from? We must do everything in our power to keep the Chinese out to. We need more help from them than from anyone else. I think it's two weeks ago so until two weeks ago you still had the governor of Benneteau who's again a league person saying that we all know literally he said we all know that Chinese eat mice so this was a pretty strong racist rhetoric and the sort of Tom Paean blaming blaming China for for for the outbreak of the disease but as soon as they realize that this is a serious problem suddenly. The referee can the narrative completely flipped now. China's the solution and then presumably at the point when the definitely went above the number of deaths in China and the the various grafted a put out but the Chinese have not just flattened the curve. But they've turned it the other way they've been the curve and in Italy as we speak. It's still going up logo rhythmically. China looks completely different. Now yes yes. Of course there is. I mean everybody. Here is aware that we are not China I. The outbreak in China was only in one region now region was as big as easily in terms of population. But here we are looking down an entire country and of course we cannot use the measures of surveillance that China has put in place presumably. There are not armed officers of the state outside upon them blocks taking people's temperatures as they go in and come out no no of course not even though they are taking temperature everywhere so when I landed from London they did take my temperature but yes dot with snitty two weeks ago. That was yes Eleven twelve days ago but they've been taking temperature at airports since the virus workout in China. So it's almost a month now even more that but when you were stopped after your work in the woods the police until your temperature didn't know so no of course we're nowhere close to what was going on in China But one thing that for example again the northern governors are trying to insist on is the idea of testing the entire population. It's an effort both in financial terms but also in terms of organization right. You need people to test. Every single citizen in each northern region again the justification for that is to do what China did so it is in some respects two weeks ahead of the UK. The sequence seems to go Italy Spain France. Uk possibly Germany a little bit behind the UK. Germany shut many of it schools before the UK did and people in in Britain and in other places looked to Italy as possible. Glimpse of our future future in two weeks time any longer timeframe than that two people in Italy as we sometimes hear looker. Say British people widow Boris Johnson on our Friday night. This is your last night for getting out to the pub- said a lot of people think right. I'm going to get some time in now. The People in Italy. Look at that and think the you don't know what's coming down the line they despair of us. Yes yes we do have heard yes yes so. There is a complete sense of despair. And just we come make sense of what's going on in the rest of Europe and in the UK and the Netherlands especially right. So is the other one right after. Boris speech when he basically announced this herd immunity theory. And when he said you're going to lose a lot of loved ones. The reaction in Italy was that that was completely completely insane. Then of course the bar is made a u-turn on that and people need to again take it as a proof that we are right just to be clear. The thing that was insane was it. The herd immunity was it. The loved ones BITs. In the sense. You said what really struck me about what you said. Earlier was the feeling in Italy that the government is doing the right thing because it is prioritizing saving lives over everything else and did it feel like Johnson was saying a little bit. Well we're GONNA have to just factory certain amount of inevitable death of old people and that that has almost a cultural dimension to this that it sounded cold about the old in a way that in Italy. That would be unforgivable. Yes yes I think..

"On in Italy what's happening now is the government is saying that and not enough people are staying in so they have fined about fifty three thousand people since the beginning of the lockdown and those are people who aren't following the rules closely enough and the interior minister threatens that if people don't stay put that she will pass a new decree that will ban going out for physical exercise right now you can go for a run within your neighborhood or do a little bit of exercise keeping the the social distancing but she says that people don't comply that will be introduced soon because the numbers are not coming down yet one of the people doing when they're going outside I mean are they doing something I mean besides just physical exercise and trying to get groceries well I think the the C. there have been people who have been you know arrested and fined and and in doing you know going out without what's called the outdoor chip TV gets yawning which is sort of a questionnaire it's sort of a self Declan Tory questionnaire that you have to fill out now that it and there's been a there was a new one introduced where you have to say that you you you know you have to sign that you have not tested positive for the virus and so that's a new measure most people here in Rome are keeping the distance I haven't seen anybody breaking that rule unless you consider sort of going for a stroll breaking that rule you know I've been exercising I have not been stopped but I'm clearly you know I'm wearing workout gear and I'm and I'm running I think what they are talking about is people going shopping several times a day they don't want that they want people to go stock up and and not go for a few days what's the anxiety level like across Italy because in the E. U. S. it's pretty hot I think it's probably a little bit lower than the U. S. now in the sense that the U. S. is under shock and it you know it's literally mind boggling I think it it it it's very hard to get to wrap your mind around it initially it's not that people have anymore answers here but I think what's happening is people have are are settling into the day to day routine and it's not easy in a way it you know there's a lot of people who are isolated and a lot of people very worried about their economic future and of course in the north of Italy it's theirs it's a disaster in the hospitals I mean they're working under emergency conditions twenty four seven but the feeling over all is that we're in for the long haul and the government has said that the initial deadline of April third we're schools would reopen that of course is not going to happen we're talking weeks and across Italy and in Rome which is further south than what they've been seeing are you thinking that there is the fear that it will be as bad ians some place like Rome as it is further north in Milan and other places you know I have talked to doctors sort of just south of of the hot spot the the lot number of deer region and in the media Romagna where there were there are a lot more cases but the capacity there has not it's coping with with the number of cases I mean they're working very hard but it's not the emergency situation of the north based on research there was one inter disciplinary study with experts from different fields from the university of Genoa and the north based on their models they're saying that Italy will probably reach peak numbers and about a week from now and then the percentage increase of cases even though each night when the government announces the new numbers there keep going up the actual percentage increase is going down a little bit so that's a reflection of the move that the government made a number of weeks ago in the north but you know that even the experts and political leaders are saying it's not coming down enough take care you too coming up calming an anxious world some of the things you can do to quell your covert nineteen concerns on perspective after this from ABC.

"I WanNa talk a little bit about what happens when people get sick. When people get sick they come and pick you up and take it. Does you know I feel like if you go now. It's a it's like going to hell and the problem. Is that if you end up in intensive care or in Sob- intensive care you're not you're not GonNa talk to your family anymore. Probably the have a helmet. We'd oxygen on on their head and so they're not able to speak on the phone and sounds like a spacesuit. Yeah exactly. It looks like that if you google it you can see it so it's the stab before intensive care a year. Lots of stories of doctors that tried to help The patient when they're so sad like rather started there's was these old woman Old Lady that she felt like she was dying so share the helmet on. She has to Dr Pepper and she wanted to say goodbye to her granddaughter. And the doctor facetime the granddaughter. And the Lord Lady Say Goodbye. After a few hours she died and that's not like a regional story. There's too many story like that doctors. Hard link between the families and the patient. And so if you're lucky enough to have a good one. That is very sensitive. They you're gonNA use facetime or skype or whatever to up you say goodbye or at least to say hi to your parents to your family. So you're saying like the good outcome is the doctor. Brings you a phone to face time with your family? If you're lucky enough and then you die alone you very long. That's another thing. Lake solitude of this.

I grew up actually in Padua that now you might know weight is because there is one of the epicenter of the coronavirus yes. I've actually never been there but I know it's in northern Italy which is a definitely known as the economic powerhouse of the country. Right I mean the car companies.

I mean this is not the part of Italy. You WanNa see shutdown if you talk to any tile in CEO Leedle is a disaster. Mcmillan is great so put that into context and you see how bad Italy is right right. We'll have do you think a lasting impact on Italy's economy or is it just kind of a temporary shock. The economic implications are pretty severe because number one who avai integrated with China. So why the coin of is is so diffused NATO and I think that's very interesting because this is related to the Dasa Structure Italy Italy is the integrated with manufacturing of. Oh so people don't understand that but just to factories both my brother and the X. Osborne on my sister way in China in January sort for work for work not enough to.

But if they use it one ks which this badly-needed is now okay and should be approved. Tomorrow shall be today because one thing. We no way while from fiscal stimulus. Is they take time to have an effect. We should intervene very fast. Now the problem is that Italy does not have the fiscal capacity to do that in a normal union would be the union intervene but unfortunately you is not a normal union but there is the global economy that if the stock market is any indication is not looking so great in this moment and the cash of the global economy slowdown.

His harsh rhetoric against migrants the media and cultural integration has resonated with Italians especially the youth. His party is the Lega or league in English and in the last six years their support among Italians under thirty I five has grown from eight percent to over twenty percent and even more broadly lake is now the second most Popular Party across Italy for this season of the ground truth podcast.

We've identified common methods or plays from playbook that populous leaders are using to undermine the same democracies is that elected them whether driven by heads of state or political parties. These forces often deploy multiple tactics at the same time but we are highlighting one in each country in this episode targeting outsiders in Italy our global fellows Alessio Toronto and the Renzo Ben Newly spoke with young Italians who are joining right wing movements.

But he's more precise message. Is Italy I to deliver the message. He adopted the playbook tactic of targeting outsiders by weaving. It's th century season. Pasta farmers insist cusack. GM Mussalini Salvini mentioned mentioned several of Rome's iconic sites such as the palace of Italian civilization and the city of Latina both of which were built by Benito Mussolini any by invoking these connections to fasten Salvini seems to be accomplishing two goals. I he can claim that he's he's rejecting the fascist legacy of these landmarks while redefining them with his legos party. Second the risks power in these imagery because it is associated with fascism which has historically been very effective in targeting outsiders and Salvini knows this according to recent polls taken by quarrel you tren and Italian think tank support for Lega grew when Salvini was frequently on TV raising. They are against migrants arriving by boat. Selby news even suggested. Italy shouldn't act. Policies restricting immigration similar to those of the trump administration and like trump savini prefers to use social media to express himself and to connect with his audience and if facebook statistics are a reliable indicator of a politician's popularity. He seems to be winning close to four million facebook users like Matteo Salvini speech. The nearest runner-up who also happens to be a far right politician has less than a third of that total but that popularity might have to do with the fact that Salvini rhetoric has changed over the years. He's now influencing a new generation ration- these younger members of Lega grew up using social media and delivering a more nuanced message to attract new followers. My name is avalanche number with Danny. I leaving Kasahda but Valentine Overdone is in her mid twenty s and a member of Lega. I met her in Casanova.

"Cloudy eddie <hes> pity is equity strategist u._b._s. wealth management. What are some of the assumptions <hes> cloudier people watching the space might be making it the moment assam. I'm sean they probably an agreement between the five star movement and then democratic party. I suppose will be the most positive one essentially villa guys being in pushing are the in order to increase spending and also to do more spending in turmoil fiscal support and not stay within the role of the european commission on the vet was a problem why the market reacted when the league got with agreement with a five star really are so probably you remember spread was widening joining the market for selling off and so on but now i think if you ever agreement between the five star movement democratic party they need to get back to repress then and matter of course <hes> before getting on deciding anything. I think that will be quite positive overall because when you look currently b._p. Cheapie spread the versus <hes> i dunno pierce which are portugal and spain eat. The lease deal traded premium so with any or civilian bone. It's wrong one point. Three percent spain with any are is point ten percent and both gal is point thirteen percent so clearly italian <hes> spread and is by door what we will do are still trading higher than pure so the car government didn't really normalizes spread of italian so in battalion spread. Currently you still have some noise around uncertainties politics so i'm not saying that that we will internationalisation but probably because even if you have an agreement between the five star and they mechanic party probably agreement will not not last long so we need to say that we can find agreement we market will react well because you have the less risky calming from lita but at the same time market invest or no that we may go back to elect sean in becoming spring so he's quite important so you may have a positive reaction of a market and especially on the part of market but we'd probably not last for long so i expect some spread to remaining between the b._t. For his stance uh-huh and both to gun in spain county or like to look at some of the specific takeaways as they relate to asset classes when you think about the equity market we have a negative atv opinion stocks sewing are comfortable location within the euro zone. We are negative oh neat but we negative stacy's linked with that that the economy's onum he's not doing well politic's met there but <hes> we have seen that the bully because being very tight scenes forever so i think <hes> <hes> it's just the short term volatility long-term more at ease but what really matters is that because even remain quite sluggish cloudy pumps finally what about the wider european outlook. Obviously we know that there are sort of significant consequences certainly in terms of getting this budget agreed in tons of italy's obligations nations to the wider blog. What do you think that market watchers. Maybe there's in brussels for example. What are they looking out for. What are their expectations. Maybe their hopes uh for what might happen next in italy. What do you think that the the wider european picture tells us but for me. The european are expecting and looking for everything being in his new coalition between democrat party and we finally star because you're ready announcer. The first line of the newspaper is it's morning but also yesterday when we present mother-in-law was speaking it was this kind of coalition will bring forward some reforms which are or ready i return on with the bar like the number of people sitting in the parliament or even <hes> reducing or easing immigration policy because clearly there was air reform which was voted during the summer which straight relative to immigration policy. He's so a p._d. And five star really sean cooled es immigration policy and may some reform so that will would be well accepted and think this kind of coalition cooler so easily proposed twenty twenty budget because there are many points on which the share and will be easy also to be except without keeping an stain without the european commission roles so that is is what the european commission and european looking for but the problem with italy's also facing is the growth is very low so if you want to keep <hes> into the fiscal deficit for various no spending tool and all the situation u._s. and in your case if free potential scenario like every five star movement plus p._d. Everything <hes> elite moving with for data over legaue beyond moving back again with a five star italy need to go to a sean again next year so if you are in a period of time with the economy's not all doing well and you have also been certainties about election that is not helpful so if you are in the grove which is close to zero or slightly above zero is not easy to picture a twenty twenty budget. I think european commission we lost we revise down all secont forecast in order to propose cloudier perry bringing us to the end of this two hundred.

"And eleven and then you go the fact that this italian government like any other talion government has got to do with the constraints that the bond markets crate now the moment italy pays exceptionally low interest on that i mean in some senses absurd italy can have a debt that's more than one hundred thirty percent of gdp and be paying little interest is it as it is in the central mechanism by which that has occurred at least in recent years has been quantitive easing so in some sense i'd say that the most longterm consequential confrontation is going to be what this talent government is going to have to say about who the next head of the is because drawing his term is coming to an end next year there's clearly a desire not only in germany but in other northern european states to have a northern european friends as they sit person is president of the european central bank but any body took that job and then terminated qe would cause an immense cents problem for italy italy's is being propped up by the european central bank at the moment and if you magin the problems it had just on that day with qa in place and then imagine what happens when that gets taken away that's a whole other ballgame something that something that we haven't seen you certainly around that post but i also think that what maybe makes it with the most significant case of ours that we have this broad societal majority in favor of two parties whose positions are in many ways going to clash with european rules and we saw it already when method made his decision you begin to see this idea of the eurozone versus democracy as a pretty open platform around which people can really understand understand this is unacceptable and that was the flash and then it receded but i think over the next few months and years of this talion government is going to be that in the background and if you've got something like sixty.
