Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of Washington, D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84
"Age, the name Fanny Fox means something. The one time stripper gained insane notoriety after she jumped into the tidal basin on an October night in 1974. She was in a gown the car she'd been in Had been pulled over by police and the man she was with made the story even bigger. He was Congressman Wilbur Mills, a Bible Belt politician who also led the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. That night, assured Fanny Fox his place in the annals of political scandals. And we've just learned today that Fox died recently at the age of 84. Let's learn more about her role in D. C History with Washington Post obituary editor Adam Bernstein. Hey, Adam, Thanks so much for being with us. And at this point, most people in Washington probably don't know anything about Fanny Fox, who was she It's a good question. Thank you so much for having me on well. The reason she was such a big name here is because of her involvement. As you said with Wilber Mills. He was the some have said the second most powerful man in Washington on Lee. We superseded by the president sort of it in the early 19 seventies, Wilbur Mills was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which controls a lot of money, and he had been in Congress for many decades. By that point, so he had this reputation of Um, accumulated reputation for food for power. And he also was from Arkansas, the Bible belt, and he had also cultivated this reputation as a as a workaholic. A grind. Um, a man of utter rectitude. And so what happened was, uh, you know, nothing would have been revealed of this affair, at least publicly. Except for this bizarre episode is you mentioned at the Washington the title based Mackenzie's senior The Jefferson Memorial. And on October 7 1950 74 He who? Wilbur Mills, who had been seeing Fanny Fox at her burlesque, Cole, You're in D. C. I was with her one night two in the morning and they get into this weird accident near the at the Tidal Basin. Basically, they're in a car without lights on the police. See them, They stopped him. And Fanny Fox. Or, you know, on impulse jumps out of the car and into the title base, And she starts you know, wrestling with the policeman who goes in after her. It's discovered that her face is all batter that Mills who were these Coke bottle glasses, His glasses are smashed. And is reeking of alcohol, and the TV crew happened to be nearby as well. So it's just perfect storm of of of politics and media, and this is right at the time of Watergate as well. So everybody was looking for the next scandal. So what ultimately happened to Wilbur Mills? Then what was the code on Fanny Fox? Good question. So Wilbur Mills survives. Oddly enough, the next election he goes, He goes back to Arkansas and sort of in this folksy manner tries to play it off. You know, his famous quote at the time is One should never drink champagne with a foreigner that that's the lesson he took away from him. And and you know, weirdly enough. He survived with his wife. She seems to back in publicly. But you know, right after winning the election and seemingly surviving by by a thread appears on her, appears with Fanny Fox again on stage in Boston, Fanny Fox and parlayed all the publicity into this lucrative career on the burlesque circuit. And he goes on stage. It's It's just terrible embarrassment captured on TV of all places again, and his career is them finished. He I think he resigns. He spends it goes into recovery. Disgraced from public office, but then spend the rest of his life. He lived a to least another 15 20 years, basically helping other recovering addicts like himself. Fanny Fox have Ah Less of Ah, a much harder time of it. She Prospers for a couple years winds up down in Florida. I couldn't find out that much about the family didn't want to cooperate, but I was able to look up various records. She she got a couple of all things degrees. Including one you know, in marine science of all. Wow. And but I couldn't figure out I couldn't figure out what she did with her time. Her lawyer didn't say your family wouldn't talk. Um I don't know. She had jobs or just How she struggled by and we will just have to live that mystery. Continue, Adam, because our time is up, though, clearly we could talk about this for a very long time. Thanks So much for being with us. Thanks. That's
Latest Melbourne hotel quarantine leak proves 'we're not learning'
"Happened in melbourne's melbourne's now in a five day down because of a hotel quarantine skype and we need your wisdom on it. Nominee basically. What we've seen is there was an escape from high to- quarantine that's a couple of times in the last few weeks and months all ever ustralia but unlike what happened in western australia and queensland they it's lead to more cases than just one or two zero so over the weekend we've seen another cases come out A few more exposure sites being recommended that people who were they're going get tested and isolate so the question is is five days going to be enough for victoria to bring these quarantine lake under control from reports. Seems clear that for a short period of time the contact tracing hesitate to use words Lost the plot but the behind it could be because it's a variant purdue could've conceivably happened with the wuhan virus as well is it's very infectious foreigners anyway and you've had a bit of escape and that's the problem that they're chasing a bit in melbourne and i think the the tracing commander in victoria does excellent work probably was prematurely the other day when he said they're on top of it you know i don't think they wear on top of that day and it's just got a beat out in the question is how much virus there is out there. There's positive sewage from various places including cobra. Where interestingly the was this private event where there's it seems to have been a bit of a spreading events how much spreading event we've remains to be seen and yet again we see with his forest that it's cluster-based that you get clusters so you're gonna cost situation in the holiday inn and then goes to other areas where you can get further sub clusters if you like developing the question is just to what extent you've got other clusters going and the extent to which they're tying them dina what's really good. News is a lot of victorians are coming forward for testing. The now seem to be on top of the contact tracing at least according to the press conference yesterday and they're the people who are becoming positive already in quarantine which is really good news artan about although it's relatively recent moved into quarantine see don't know backtracking the extent to which they were spreading the virus before they became positive. So my guess is the. I can't really guess because no inside information but what to watch for is just. How many new cases develop each states. If you remember from western australia queensland particularly when they went to short shot lockdowns zero cases each day's me say well. Why did they bother doing it here. There are not zero cases each day but now cases coming forward questions what happens today but if there are more cases each day particularly new venues than they are going to be a bit anxious about letting this go on wednesday so we'll just need to wait and see. unfortunately there's no crystal ball gazing. You mentioned just now this idea of a short short incubation period which is something that we've sort of his that it's language that's been used almost every time this being an outbreak so we heard it in south australia and in sydney last year as well. Is there any evidence that this time. They truly is a shorter incubation period. Looking at national evidence. No it's more that you the you're much more likely to spread it to other people are not the reproduction number is more like three point. Four and two point five with the wuhan version of the virus. The number of people that you're likely to infect if it was going on chick to live in faith but which is an artificial number because if you look at say the crossroads motel they are not there. I don't know guessing. But fifteen maybe fifteen people or something like that because it spreads and clusters the are not as average when you can get into super spanning the are not becomes really quite large and scary and with this new variant presumably even larger and scarier. And then you get people emerging probably with a lot of virus on board early on who helped the super spreading to a car and that makes it looks as the incubation period is shorter. It's just i think they've got a viral load. That develops faster rather than the the condition period being shorter luck with other times that we've seen a short shop look down as the company to fly over this idea of a five day quarantine. Is it an overreaction. I don't believe it is controlled. Every time i say it but the fact is you've got this new variant around. There's increasing information from britain that it's more virulent that there may be hospitalization and maybe even har- death rate with it still uncertain so i don't think it is and i think it's just a question of getting things under control and letting the contact tracers get on top of it really quickly and not really damaging and it's been damaging weekend for the restaurant trades in victoria with valentine's day we can also the lunar new year but it's an important thing to do and you if you go back to the middle of last year. If tornado had done this kind of thing probably for about two weeks just says it was spreading in the northwest corridor. They wouldn't almost certainly have had a lockdown lasting well over hundred
The hidden history found in your teeth
"And why don't you to think about the image that you see when i say. One word migrant pictured a crowded boat in rough waters people clinging to the top of a freight train or crossing desert wearing worn out shoes. This is what we see in the news cycle. Twenty four hours day after day story after story people who are desperate fleeing wars climate change fleeing poverty but in reality most people move from common reasons to get a good education to find a job to find members or to fall in love. And this is nothing. New archaeologists like me have been studying migration and finding that people for hundreds even thousands of years have been moving around the globe from europe's earliest farmers to vikings to pirates roman gladiators and even the nfl caveman and people like you and me. Mobility is one of the things that makes us human people move and we know this because of something that you brought with you here tonight you carry it with the many places to work to the gym to bed and even in the shower. It's not your cell phone and it's not any person your pockets it's you it's your body and your bones all two hundred and six them. I brought mine because your bones will tell the story of your life even a single two and we know that teeth. Tell us many things for your dentist. For example he or she can see if you floss or if like me really like candy and you might end up with some cavities. And if my dentist is here tonight will see you monday. And i've been very good but your teeth also tell you something about migration you take your tongue and run it along. Incisors these front teeth. The back of those will be flat. If you have european or african ancestry if you feel sort of scoop or shovel shape your ancestors may have been native american or migrated from asia. If we go inside the tooth so the pulp cavity we may be able to extract the dna. And see if your ancestors came from egypt or england or both but we're not interested as much in your family's migration history as yours and we're that's where we go to the tooth enamel what it's made out of to try and find out if a person moved and even when they moved and it's based on one simple idea that you are which eats all the minerals and elements in the food like calcium oxygen. Which is the h two sodium in. Salt can tell us something about your diet. So we know if you or white bread if you prefer pork chicken or if you really like seafood there other elements that. Tell us where that food came from. And that includes sulfur strontium oxygen and even lead. Which of course you don't want very much of but these tell us where the food comes from and that can tell us where you were when you you're eating and that is what archeologists us to identify ancient migration if we look inside the tooth enamel conc- for example in your first molar. This is the one that was forming along with your baby teeth. But it's only when you still have and that tells us where you were living as an infant if we look at wisdom tooth which is the last tooth the form. That enamel would have been mineralized before you hit your teenage years. So we know where you're living then if we look at your bones and in that pause you just formed new bone cells. That's telling us what you're eating and what you're doing just about the past decade of life so we can really track where people moved and we've looked at this for hundreds and thousands of individuals to identify migration in the past. So i'd like to introduce you to some ancient migrants. If we go back in time sixteen hundred years we can go to the city of coupon where the people lived in. What's honduras if we came around the year four hundred ad who might have walked into broad plazas under really hot tropical sun was shining onto bright red painted buildings altars and carved statues in front of them. If we'd come on the right day we might have seen. The inauguration of ruler can initiate kook mall roughly translated that means son faced first mccaw. The maya rulers had really great names bird jaguar. Dark lady great but what was really neat about yash. Kusumo is that he established a dynasty that lasted for more than four hundred years. And every depiction we have him. Show him in foreign clothing. This is what people weren't central mexico which was not in the maya region and actually hundreds of miles away so for a long time. Archaeologists thought that this was a foreign king but his teeth told a different story by sampling. His first smaller has wisdom tooth and bone. We found that he in fact probably came from somewhere in the maya region so he wasn't migrant but he made lived in multiple places before coming to colpon even though he dressed like he was a foreigner
China bans BBC World News from broadcasting
"Television channel from London. NPR's Frank Langfitt reports that the move comes after a British regulator revoke the license of a Chinese state broadcaster. China's broadcast regulator accused the BBC of failing to report accurately and impartially while undermining China's national interests and ethnic solidarity. Most recently, the Chinese government criticized and denied BBC reports that women and internment camps for Wiegert and other Muslims in Xinjiang were subject to rape and torture. The BBC says it's disappointed with China's decision and insisted reports fairly impartially and without fear or favor. Chinese government already censored some BBC content on the broadcasters. TV audience in the country is tiny. The BBC has not been allowed to broadcast directly into Chinese homes. It's been available in international hotels and the homes of some foreigners and more globally minded Chinese Frank Langfitt. NPR

Domestic extremism has become 'mainstream,' could threaten American life for 20 years
"Foreigners coming to america to kill americans we immediately condemned and we see it as offensive wrong illegal and we've waged twenty year war on terrorism against this kind of threat. Some winter occurs in the united states. It's something we ignore. We don't wanna come to grips with and in part that's because of the constitutional freedoms freedom of expression freedom of assembly. But we have to understand too that words matter and that words can be weaponized as we've seen unfortunately in the digital arab be very quickly and easily transformed into want an outright violence last month on a bright day in the capital president biden used a phrase that no previous president had used in an inaugural address white supremacy arise streamers of supremacy domestic terror. Is words were delivered in the very spot. Where just one week earlier. A mob of insurrectionists stormed the capital at the behest of president donald trump. the riot was not exclusively a white supremacist event. But it did bring together. Extremists from a wide array of white nationalist and white supremacist groups. Many openly carrying flags and symbols in support of their movements one of the most haunting images of that day was that of the confederate flag being lofted in the halls of the capitol building for years. The united states has devoted enormous resources to fighting transnational terrorism. But until now the threat of homegrown white supremacist. Terror has not received the same focus even after multiple mass shootings even as the fbi and the department of homeland security designated it as the most lethal domestic threat. But now that seems to be changing. I'm gabriel sierra. And this is why it matters today white nationalism white supremacy and the fight to calm the situation has reached a dire point where the. Us capital is now in lockdown. Both the and learning more tonight about the capitol. Police officers died of injuries from the attack. Forty two year old brian. Nick served his country in. I grew up in austria and very aware of kristallnacht or the night of broken glass. He was a night of rampage against the jews carried out in nineteen thirty eight the nazi equivalent. The proud boys waste. It was the day of broken glass right here in the united states so to start with. I think it's important to have a definition. What is white nationalism white nationalism. I would define as an overarching concept that embraces the idea of white supremacism. This is bruce. He's a senior fellow for counterterrorism and homeland security at the council on foreign relations and leading expert on terrorism in twenty fourteen. He was appointed by congress to lead a review of the fbi's response to nine eleven it embraces a very strident xenophobic or anti immigrant physician. It is hostile to all those who were deemed quote unquote. The words all these strangers. All these new immigrants are taking what is ours. But not just any kind of material sense ours. His birthright the goal of a white list. I would argue is to rally as many people of his or her race into not just accepting but emulating and adopting their own exclusionary discriminatory xenophobic views. The topic of white nationalism and white supremacist extremism is complex and it lies in the shadow of the far larger problem of racism itself as you might expect with such a complicated issue. There is debate about nomenclature. I'm going to use the term. White supremacist extremism. And then tell you why. I think it's better than white nationalism. This is. Cynthia miller address a sociologist at american university in the school of public affairs and the director of the polarization and extremism research and innovation lab or peril so white supremacist. Extremism is an ideology. That believes in a hierarchy of superiority and inferiority that is racial that puts white people white civilizations as they use of the term of all others. it's global ideology and that global ideology rests on a conspiracy theory that is called the great replacement that believes that white civilizations are being deliberately. Eradicated through demographic change in immigration at the hands of usually jews and muslims. Were staring down the barrel gun here. In america we have the possibility of becoming a minority in our country. Possibility i'll say look. I'm actually using the wrong words. They're actually conquerors. And that's the thing we need to understand. Most white people were handing on the keys. Dr counter white supremacist extremists. They have specific policy proposals in mind. But essentially they want to restore a white civilization. they want to deport or what. They sometimes call in software. Language re migrate people or a non white back to their countries of
Myanmar's leader detained as military seizes control in apparent coup
"Chang, the country of Myanmar is under military control again after a coup deposed the government of former democracy icon on San Souci. The military claims. Massive election fraud that sauce Ooh Cheese party went overwhelmingly in November's general election. Michael Sullivan reports. The military says it's state of emergency will only last a year. Mo Tosia of the Institute for Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore. Isn't buying. She has a long memory and recalls a similar promise made by the military. After a student led uprising. Decades ago, I go back to 1988 promise was to convene elections and hand over power to the party that won the elections, and we all know what happened to 1990. What happened then, she says, was that on some soup cheese party won convincingly. Victory. The military then refused to recognize. But today she insists things are different than they were 30 years ago. The global political and economic climate It will just be very unfavorable for military hunter seeking to justify his actions. I think That's assuming the military cares. I think that probably calculated that they've got friends in the world that will be disappointed in them, but will ultimately put their own self interests to the fore. And let them get away with it. David Matheson is a Youngun based analyst reached in Thailand. The endgame, I think is quite disturbing. I think it's them holding onto power. And definitely Mary Kelehan, a Myanmar scholar at the University of Washington, who is in the former capital, Yangon, isn't so sure. I don't even know if they have a plan. But, she says, even without a plan This crisis was inevitable, given the cohabitation that the 2008 Constitution imposed upon political and personal photos or enemies, So I'm not so shocked. To be honest. That arrangement she says, was created in part by the military drafted Constitution. That allowed it to retain control over several key ministries while guaranteeing the military a quarter of the seats in parliament effective veto power. Despite this on song suit, she went to the International Court of Justice in 2019 to refute allegations of genocide by Myanmar's military against the Muslim minority Rohingya. I think foreigners read too much into that, and that's what's being that's what we're hearing over and over. Which is that you know, she went to bat for the military, but she went about for her country. I mean, she saw this I C J case as an attack on her country and inevitable or not, Callahan says. This crisis couldn't have come at a worst time mammals facing its greatest health threat since the Spanish flu of 1918 There's new outbreaks of fighting in places where there had not been violent in a decade, and now it has a national political crisis when she says that will not turn out well for the people

"Let's start the hour with a look at the other side of the coin has a couple of americans explain how they reinvented themselves when they moved to italy. Have you ever liked what you saw in italy so much that you dreamed of actually moving there. I have to admit i've been tempted myself. We're joined now on travel. With rick steves by two people who gave into that temptation and now they're living their dreams and rod left her job and twenty fourteen and moved to cnn and long so for him. To medallion settled down within near sorrento above the coffee. Coast anna an and join us now to tell us their story. Thanks for joining us. Thanks so anna. How did you end up in sienna. I studied italian in college. Fell love with it. Decided to move to italy after college. Move to to rin then ended up doing graduate work in manchester became professor and then realized that i needed to get to sienna because i did my thesis on saint catherine of sienna and every summer i went every summer. Got harder to come back to the states. So i eventually just decided to move there. And that was a few years ago and You must like it. Because you're still there i do. I love it by the way big industrial city in the north. No nonsense fantastic city. Though the best food real interim people think about that but you ended up in sort of the fairytale medieval tower not an end lung. What's your story. I changed my major twice in university and so decided to take months break to go to italy to try to learn the language. Because i'd been there on vacation before and then after six months decided to stay in ended up marrying an italian and been thirty eight years living in sorrento thirty eight years in beautiful lemon cellos cream. Lemon cellos with those nothing. Better i can't think of a more dolce rental so now you've been there thirty eight years in a small town a small community in community above surrender. You always the foreigner You don't look italian. I'm a foreigner. I definitely have strange ways the way i do things It's foreign but i've been absorbed into the community. They think of me as a local. Because i've withstood thirty eight and you respect the do respect them and there's a lot of my friends that were foreigners that have left sense and they get no respect. I can respect accepted in the community. Are you taken seriously at community meetings or parent teacher meetings. Whatever you might be into you sit there at the table and and you're part of the community and they'll ask me about my opinion about local ideas and things and i'm raising family in the community as well so it touches my life. Now anna i always think of who settled in. Europe is experts. Yes but you're also just flat out. Immigrants immigrants exactly it which my friends in santa always remind me of ohio the immigrants. What's the difference between an ex pattern and immigrant. Well if we're going to be blunt the color of your skin. Isn't that something. I know in italy relationships seem to be really important to get things done personally and in your in your work life. Talk about the importance of relationships. In italy the hugely important and i think that had i not found myself in a contrada in sienna. I don't think i would have stayed because it's so important to be a part of a community. And i am the american in the she wolf so you really identify with the she wolf district. Yes loo- i know that because you guys won the palio two times in one year. Yes we did. And cnn has this passion for the neighborhood. yes. I mean famously. With these contrada. Yes and think that. Cnn is very much a walled city in in both senses of the word because it has the walls that are still there from medieval times. But there's this wall mentality as well where it's hard to enter and to become a part of the community. So i feel very lucky that i found myself in the contrada and they accepted me eventually but like and said it took awhile. Oh she's still coming back so she is she

Best of 2020
"Lucky for me. Growing up in a family where i was. I'm the fourth generation. Also cillian yorkers luckily in new york. Everyone uses her hands. I mean just as such a part of who we are new yorkers. My mother actually went to school. You know she came out with a lot of experience. Is you know in the hearing community and You know my mother often would go to studio fifty four new york actually. She is big dancer. Used to go there all the time and is very very very good within reacting with hearing people so when we were kids of course my mom was very much sort of that bridge right. She kind of taught us how to you know work interact with young people. My my mom always really pushed on her to play on hearing leagues to play sports. And you know when of course we would always asked like. Why are we playing here kids. She's they at some point. You have to learn how to interact with them and now looking back that experience. I'm incredibly grateful for that. Gave me right. I never really felt a big difference between hearing people enough people. I really more or less felt that hearing people just spoken to language you know. They were kind of a foreigner arms kind of foreigner all of our raw close friends in the neighborhood role hearing so it really wasn't interesting experience. Certainly and that of course contributed to my experience on america's top model and now with my career in the industry ninety percent of the people that i work with live in the hearing world. So you know for the first twenty five years of my life. Things are very different but of course really impacted that. I'm so thankful you know. But i definitely wasn't sheltered by any means we'll sports that makes so much sense is a great idea especially because baseball has signs. What what sports did you play. Yeah absolutely absolutely To be honest with you. I played just about everything i could. You know baseball. There's actually a really interesting history. You know dating back to sign for strike were to ball or to all the different gestures and those were actually created years ago by deaf. Baseball players name was dummy hoy and he was the first baseball player who ever made it professional in the eighteen hundreds and when he got into the police he communicate with people and so they developed a essentially a system of hand signs or hand signals and the rest is history. Now we see that you know those hand signals have made it to all sorts of other sports how we communicate across fields and yet because of percent while i was i was reading the gala. That is where the football Huddle originated because folks were signing and needed for anybody listening that want anybody to be able to signing. And they didn't want people to see the signs right yet against playing against another football team. Obviously if you're communicating sign language across the football field you can see you know across the football field. You can see exactly what the other team is planning for. So that's where the huddle was invented. And you know i. I don't know why hearing people thought it was great idea but you know i guess they really love it now. You see it on. Tv every sunday right. I mean i get. I mean maybe it also just. Is that thing of you know feeling protective in lake. You're part of a group which again would be mood. Which makes so much sense. Why your mom would suggest that like it's it makes perfect sense and i also curious now that i'm like realizing 'cause i just had the we're listening. D do you interact with podcast you personally as a human to be honest with you. It's kind of another thing. So podcasts are typically just done through spoken english in with and with a lot of them. Dan provide transcripts which pretty extensive and occasionally. I'm happy to to pull it up and give it a read through but it's not the same experience as it would be. You know to listening to a conversation you know if there were podcast with you know say sign interpreting or something that i could essentially listen to you through my eyes. I think it'd be a lot more comfortable and i. I might even be a fan. But i think it anyway but you know honest with you. I don't have any favorite podcast. Really come to mind. That makes perfect sense. I mean i will say. I do not think it is a an art that is accessible like. I just don't think that it's something that folks are focused on making it accessible for for hurry appearing folks and i won't even say as a comic you know A lot of times. When i've provided in asl interpreter. Which i've done many times. It usually comes per request. Which again is something that like. I could continue to work on But it is it is the rise is on the deaf. Hard of hearing person to send me some random tweet or to get in touch through my management overbooking. The show and that has happened many times. But like one fucking bummer to have to constantly work to be accommodated right right. Definitely definitely you know. It's it's always a matter of reaching out but it's just so become part of a part of what it is you know. We oftentimes which wish accessibility just come to us. Yeah you know it's funny. I actually for Trump's large meetings and for his large rallies you know he he doesn't provide interpreters and so a group actually sued the white house and finally they are putting access and transcripts up live while lawsuit and that makes much sense to that that that it would be important. I mean to read what he's saying that specifically that person versus being able to see what he's saying comprehend what he's saying in a visual format like that is so it is so impactful. His presence is so impactful in a negative way. But it's it's part of stuff fidelity. You're absolutely right. you're absolutely right. Yeah i mean honestly he downplayed the whole thing right and continued to deprive millions and millions of americans. You know of their access to participate in the democratic system and to vote. I mean it's just while do you think there is there any is there anybody. Is there any art form were. Who's doing a good job with this. Is there anybody doing a good job. Making things accessible for you like just in general. Yeah i mean now that. I guess now that you're saying time like this feels like it would always be on you. You know like i just. I can't think of something. And i thought maybe you had that like magic. You're like this team. Yeah i mean it is definitely a constant. It's constantly constantly a lack of access But yeah. I can't think of anyone specifically while i mean i i will pursue for my partner is.

European Union begins coronavirus vaccine rollout
"The European Union began vaccinating people this weekend against Cove in 19. It's an effort that spreads across its 27 member states. The massive vaccination campaign began over the weekend, and the timing is critical. Some member nations air seeing surges in cases, MPR's global health and development correspondent Jason Beaubien joins us now. Hi, Jason. Dalila. So this sounds like a massive undertaking. What can you tell us about the vaccine rollout? Yeah. I mean, absolutely, You know, Europe has been very hard hit by this pandemic. The visor by on tech vaccine is the first one authorized in the EU, and that could actually have ripple effects. Beyond Europe because there are a lot of other countries outside of the continent, but including also the W. H O that will accept authorization from the European medicines agencies in their own regulatory process. So having this start in your really means that these vaccination campaigns May be able to get going all over the world globally. It's really a great assignment, you know, still huge logistical challenges. But overall in the vaccine front, this is really good news. There's also bad news coming out of Europe, however, and that this new strain of the virus that researchers air calling the UK variant is being found not only inside the United Kingdom but really all over the world. Now it's it's significantly more infectious. So far. It has not been detected in the United States, but they found cases in Canada, Singapore, Japan and many parts of Europe. So this new variant sounds really concerning what more do we know about it? Well, the CDC says that it is 70% more transmissible. They believe they also are saying they definitely need more research on it. And they're saying that at the moment travel restrictions are one way T actually try to keep it from getting a foothold. In places like the United States. So a lot of world leaders are trying to stop that new variant from getting into their countries. What new travel bans restrictions? Are we seeing? What's the kind of amazing is we're seeing right now sort of the most aggressive tightening of global travel restrictions at any time. Since the early months of the pandemic. You've got more than 40 countries have band of travelers from the UK, Japan just announced. It's basically barring all foreigners at least until the end of January. Israel is going into a really tight lock down. Some countries are also barring South Africans over another variant that's been found there. And starting today, travelers from the UK into the US they're gonna have to show proof of a negative covert test within the last 74 hours before boarding their flights, So these new restrictions are being driven by the fears about this new strain of the virus. Yeah. So what's the big picture here for the next weeks, months ahead, you know, it really depends with your sort of looking short term or long term. Clearly the vaccines getting out there and getting in people's arms. This is really good from the long term, right. But in the short term concerns about these mutations about these more, possibly You know, transmissible strains that that could be spreading border closures. You know, all of that is showing that the pain and uncertainty of this pandemic really aren't going away in the short term. You know, in over the weekend, you know Anthony Fauci. He was on CNN, he said. We're at this critical point right now, And he's quite concerned that people who've gotten together over the holidays. Those people are going to drive more infections, and we're gonna see a bigger spike in numbers. As we get into the next few weeks, it might actually get worse. Worse than where we are right now, which is at a very bad spot. NPR's Jason Beaubien Thank you. You're welcome.
The View From Beijing
"Things here in new york city where i live were terrible really tense. Covert cases and deaths were rising fast and it was clear that new york and really all of the us. We're gonna have to endure a lot of restrictions on life in the economy in the coming months and speaking with. Dan gave me hope back then because beijing which had been hit with covert earlier in the year was already coming out of. Its own tough lockdown and his. Dan told us at the time. It's definitely a big relief to see the city. Getting back to normal and i think people are extra glad to be outside plus. Dan even offered some parting words. Optimism for the rest of the world based on his experience washer has a void crowds. And this will probably get better of course things in the. Us only got better for a few months in the spring and summer before there was a massive new spike of covert cases in hundreds of thousands of deaths from covid. It's just been devastating year but things have been different in beijing and across china a of aggressively isolating people with covert cases travel restrictions technological surveillance and other tactics that are a lot more invasive and controversial than anything that was likely to be tried for example in the us or europe led china to effectively. Stop the spread of covid so today on the show. I am speaking with dan again to catch up with him to see what life has been like in beijing since we last spoke in march and the see especially how different it seems from life in the rest of the world then we last spoke in mid march and of course things in china have been a lot better when it comes to cova then things in the us and in europe and other parts of the world. What is your life in beijing. Been like since you. And i spoke card. If you know my life in beijing has been pretty much the same as how my life hop back in march so basically. According to the official numbers released by the chinese government the virus have been pretty much completely decisively beaten back by april and so really since april. There's been just a steady loosening up of all of these different restrictions that we last spoke about in march. I spent a month in hot shanghai which has been ha- Over september which has been broadly open. And what. I found really studying there. Back in september was that everybody was taking meetings. Everybody was taking business meetings. Plus again people were having coffee. People were having all lunch. I gave several presentations to different folks. On the things i was really struck by was that everybody was out to shake my hands on this is this is one of these weird things i thought as i. Maybe we should stop this sort of thing guys. Usually i try to try these things into fist. Bumps sort of funny how you know the culture that didn't invent handshaking is now perpetuating a tradition. That kind of now seems a little bit barrique. Is that weird and danner there. Any lingering vehicles to normal life in beijing even though the spread of covid has been successfully slowed. And if anything. It's been kind of stomped out in beijing. Just a few left card have so these include Basically still fairly regular temperature checks. When i go to places like the mall when i go to my office when i go to the grocery store mask wearing still pretty universal him beijing i think around ninety eight percent of the folks salt walking around the city. Now it's not quite cold. Her wearing masks around minus five. I think everyone is nervous. About cove has fell as the flu season. And then the other big thing i think is thought Most places Aiko i have to flash a contact tracing app. I have installed on my phone. Basically show a green button to make sure that i have not been to any off. High risk areas are recently. There are broader travel restrictions. In that. if i leave the country it is really really difficult to get back into china. These are basically only still left. That i have to deal with in terms of covid. Dan was there anything about the way that china went about fighting. Covid that you found or still find to be very invasive in may be bothered you. i think. The biggest part of china's response that was critically effective Is the system of centralised quarantine. It imposed this is a centralized quarantine system in which got people in two stadiums and that was a fairly invasive procedure but yet. In retrospect this sort of thing Seems like extremely effective at actually Stopping out the virus on march twenty six. The chinese government announced you know with no warning that no foreigners are able to enter the country again. If you had valid visas to visit family to visit for business here all of that was just suddenly cut off by march. Twenty six and china also limited the ability of high even chinese nationals. Also enter the country by limiting the number of flights here so i think the travel restrictions. I think has been a really important part of basically china's response of stopping out covid. And i think that has been a major factor in stopping the introduction of new cases. Even though that has been a highly disruptive on a lot of folks who live here. Who work dan when we spoke in march. You said that you had gained a kind of newfound appreciation for the physical world. The tangible world relative to the digital world. And i'm wondering if that lesson stock or if now it started to kind of fade away because life has returned to normal for you analysts in part on china's heavy industry so you know the bigger the machines the heavier of the machines the pedder has. I've always thought most people are stuck at home. You know people. A lot of people like to say that they really want to watch netflix. On the only sleep and more. Now i feel that that's fun for a couple of weeks but really what you want to do is to get back engaged with the world again. Going hikes meet with fries and you know get out of the house and not simply consume digital products. Were bugs or even podcasts. All day long. And i still sticking with my idea thought in the material world is really really important and we should all be engaging with it a lot more and last question dan. What's been your reaction to the news that a vaccine seems like it's on the horizon you know increasingly not just in the us but in other countries throughout the world and also in china pau gasol. It's really great to see these vaccines with such high levels of efficacy. And so what i am keen to see is how quickly that Manufacturing can be scaled up how quickly that be distributed I think it's certainly important to make sure that this gets distributed quickly so that You know the quick work of scientists can actually be a really effective here and any parting words from beijing for our listeners. In the us in other parts of the world straight to you wear masks if you can

How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great
Berries Add Color to the Fall Landscape.
"You mentioned several different types of berries of the that you have in your yard in addition to the snow berry and the corollary. I know that you have beauty berry. What else do you have. Well beauty berry and i snuck in money sneaking. I asked permission. I put it in my neighbor's yard. Because i didn't have room for it to grow as i would want it to growth so it is there in my neighbor's yard get to enjoy it then. A matter of several hollies The ones that i have are. I'm going to call them the sparkle berry group now. This is very nonspecific but it is a shrub type of holiday. It does lose. Its leaves their about gone right now but at the same time as they go. They uncover brilliant red berries half the size of a small cranberry Blueberry whatever They are profuse The flowers a tiny little thing in the spring might walk by it and not even see it. But when there is a momma and poppa or many muslims in pop up so that they can cross pollinate they are outstanding and then about three years ago. I put in a foreigner so to speak. it is and a yellowish buried. one that is also pollinated by the same male and therefore i have the taller red and then headed over toward the orangey yellow of the flooring. Crab fruit is the little very of the sparkle berry group. I've forgotten his name. I'm sorry but at the same time there are several variations of red and then orange and yellow so Really outstanding type of plant and then of course the flooring crabs are in full color right now must have been a good time for them in the spring because they flowered very nicely and then there must not have been a frost at. We'll call it the wrong time because my Well my flooring. Crabs are just standing full of fruit which will then freeze not before too long and be ready for the verge to eat so it gives me two different pleasures. One and watching the birds which will swarm that tree or shrub group when he had can. And then on from there into the simply. They're looking three then. I happened to have two different hawthornes in my yard as background creatures and both of them are wonderful trees. The one right now is a beautiful orange red berry the other one. Fortunately where i put. It has no fruit. Never has that any fruits flowers white in the spring so those plants are looking good also.

However, what I'm hearing in between here is that until about seven or eight years ago, nine or 10 years ago back one of the last economic meltdown that we had a lot of mortgage lenders fell like dominoes. Is that they came along, and they recommend that a lot of people were piggybacking on parents or even friends and sometimes even purchasing what's called a trade land off of the Internet and piggybacking on a stranger's credit card. And those authorised users can inflate those authorised user accounts can inflate somebody's credit for and because of that they will not allow you to qualify for a mortgage for most mortgage lenders now if they see an authorized user account I want that account taken off of your credit report.

Oh and let's give it up to that junior Walker Sax Solo from urgent along with more hooks than you'd find it any meat. Packing plant of course diggers. Please go spend some time with all things. Mick Jones on your music platform of choice. Also go read his autobiography foreigners tail or from your favorite bookseller and I sent at the top. A lot of people have a love hate relationship with foreigner. They love hate them. That is until they need a romantic song to get someone in the mood. Or if they want to hear a big anthem to pump them up or they need a good driving music for fun or they just want to sing at the top of their lungs test songs. That may have been overplayed at the time but you know is at least a guilty pleasure. I know who you are. Yeah like I said. The band used to fit or category sometimes called arena rock or corporate. Rock it's derision for bands. That really the the crime is selling too many records and at times him considered rather bland musically or not in your face excitement or lyrically filled with insight and depth. But you know there's a lot of music out there for whatever mood you might be in or for whatever emotional need you require for the last two weeks. We did episodes on thrash metal and PUNK Both of which are about as far apart musically as the dominating arena rock of the age but like I said about those two musical genres being two sides of the same coin. Yeah just the creamy middle being bands like foreigner. Yeah see what you want about this rock act. They dominated the charts for about ten years again. Sixteen top forty hits and over eighty million albums sold. I can tell you writing. A single hit is like winning the lottery. Writing three to five pretty much guarantees you a lengthy career. What does sixteen gets you a bad reputation for sucking the oxygen out of the room from other bands who might be worthy of but is that. Mix Walt Hells No. This is skill at a very high level. He can't be blamed for that. And that gets me to the point. I want to make here while I was doing my research. Prior prior to speaking with the man I was shocked. That foreigner is not already in the Rock Hall and that they never received a grammy were nominated. Three times can't do much about the grammys. If Bon Jovi's in the hall foreigner should be as well so I went to the expert on our Pantheon pods team and asked Joke was Allah from who cares about the Rock Hall. Why and here's what Josette I quote. While foreigner is a big mainstream van they have never been critically adored and the hall has only recently started to warm up to those types of bands journey bungee Chicago. That only happened in the last four years. A lot of rock bands. That aren't in the hall and think there's some conspiracy theory behind their exclusion. But that's always disapproved. I think the three bands that I just listed all throughout thought that and then of course were inducted. Eventually and it's confirmed that hurt again. Who was in charge of hall for many years tried to get foreigner on the ballot but the nominating committee just wasn't feeling it. I'm sure foreigner will get eventually too big to ignore if you ask me. Some acts just have to wait on end quote so there is that Again again to me. It's all good Because foreigners music has stood the test of time and really. That's the judge for anything. Okay next week. We continue with legends when we talk with Doug Cosmo Clifford of creedence clearwater. Revival he gives me all the good bad and ugly with the band from El Cerrito California. That sounds like they just walked out of Louisiana swamp the first band to truly knocked the Beatles off the top of the POPs join me for that one diggers. Stay safe out there an.

Peak America and Peak Revolutionary Rock and roll resides. Not that we won't see some amazing stuff down the line in the seventies eighties and beyond but just that we will be entering a new world as we leave the nineteen sixty behind and go from the music being more revolutionary to being more evolutionary. All right I'll give you a quick preview Let's see we left off Episode Eighteen with the Beatles on the rooftop in Mayfair London And the stones in Hyde Park London memorializing their old founder. Brian Jones in the first part of the year We then took you to the moon and showed how science fiction in books. Tv and movies affected the music and vice versa. Partout finishes off the year with the two big polar opposite cultural events Woodstock an ultimate. But are they that different looking deeper? It appears to US each could have easily gone the other way big difference well probably set and setting as our old friend Timothy leary suggests maybe one being in a bucolic with water and beauty is a better choice then some hilly scrub brush in December where the winds howl cold more importantly though is that Another old friends vision of the future has come.
