Dr. Andrew G. Huff: How Coronavirus Likely Leaked From a Chinese Lab
"Documents? What did you learn that all of a sudden gave you insight that we weren't able to glean publicly from news reports or just suppositions? Sure. So based on my training, so being the guy that developed the bios surveillance platforms for three letter agencies. I know exactly how well these technologies work, and they work very well. So basically, if a disease starts spreading on the other side of the planet with our spy technology, there are surveillance technology in the processing hour that we have in the algorithms that we have. We're able to sort of needles in the haystack and identify those quickly. So I had this built into my brain and how intelligence analysts analyze a situation. Just by random chance, I pick up on some chatter in mid December of 2019. That there's an emerging infectious disease outbreak happening in Wuhan. So the first thing I do is I try to validate that. I find videos on YouTube and other platforms or channel places of people say this crazy stuff going on at first, you know, you're skeptical what's going on here. So I went bold BM 2.5 air emission pollutant data for Wuhan and then overlaid that with crematoriums and I saw that there was point source emission from the crematoriums, which is a clear indicator that they're trying to get rid of bodies as fast as they can, which is highly correlated with severe emerging infectious disease outbreak or event. Well, you know, I do it any good scientists in my field and connected to the deep state, so to speak. I start calling up other doctors in my field, other public health practitioners and asking what's going on. Why aren't we finding the alarm here? Because usually the CDC would be a fabric that's right away screaming at, you know, there's something happening. Let's take precautionary measures. Well, you get into the first weeks of January 2020, and this is barely a blip in the American, by the U.S. government. And

Marc Morano: Public Health Bureaucrats Were High on Power in 2020
"In 2020 though, the World Health Organization, which by the way, Bill Gates is the second funder behind the United States government to the World Health Organization. Their leader Tedros was picked by China, sent a delegation of people world health officials to China to investigate Chinese response. Within a matter of days, they came back and essentially said, we have seen the future. It is China. If you want to contain this virus, do exactly what China's doing. Italy followed suit and then the entire western world followed suit based on World Health Organization guidance. Anthony Fauci was even January 2020 was in an interview saying, can you imagine us shutting down San Francisco in New York like they're doing in China? It could never happen here in the U.S.. Neil Ferguson, the modeler then said, we thought it couldn't happen in the west until it did. So this was like just manna from heaven for these public health bureaucrats who had just couldn't even imagine that they could have this kind of power and sway. And then of course, Donald Trump, I still maintained that if Hillary Clinton were president, I think there would have been massive pushback, but because Trump of a conservative Republican did this emergency decree and then got duped into supporting the ten days, the slowest. We all got duped. We have to be clear. We all got duped. I never suspected when they're talking about a vaccine that there could be anything negative about that. I thought, what a great thing. How wonderful. Let's get this on the fast track. Most of us had no clue what was actually happening. And we are, it is in our national character to be nice to go along. We trust it. And we trusted, this is often what people do. But at some point you begin to wake up, you begin to look around and say, hey, wait a second. What is happening? But those of us who did speak up were crushed by the global elites. I

"Hey, Tom, Great to see in person and it's wonderful to join you guys again today. Sir, you've had since we talked to you in January. 2020 things have changed a little bit for you. We've got to another star Four star General and Chief of the Guard Bureau. Congratulations, sir. Thank you, Tom. Sir, Can you share a little bit about about your career with our listeners? I know you were in Oregon Agin in general at one point, and then you spent some time out here in D. C. Yes, Tom. It's a great story. I've been able to be part of actually a third generation National Guardsmen. Both my grandfather and father were members of the Minnesota National Guard. And, uh, through the years I always knew the importance of the garden my time on active duty when it decided to my wife and I decided to leave active service. Of course, we came into the National Guard and it's just been a An incredible run to work with so many amazing young men and women, and, uh, I look back now at the pictures of my grandfather, my father when they're members of the Minnesota guard, and, uh, you know, it just makes me really proud to be part of the team and carry on that tradition and then Continue to serve, which is the incredible, UM, service members and all services, but particularly the National Guard General, this show today we're talking about 9 11 2001. I can't believe it's been 20 years. Can you take us back 20 years? I think you were a major in the in the Oregon National Guard yet, Tom back when I was young and cool. But, you know, I think back to that day. Like many people, it was really one of those moments that you just never forget. And, you know, having been on the West Coast. I actually had got up early that morning with my wife. We were training for a marathon. So we went along run, and then we came back and went to sleep briefly before I was going to go to work. And my mother in law called and said, Hey, you got to turn on the news, a plane hit one of the World training center towers. And I remember Years earlier, reading a story about how an air force plane in bad weather it actually crashed in the Empire State building, So I just thought, Oh, gosh, I wonder if it was an event like that. But when I turned on the T V and saw Crystal clear blue skies, I knew that was not the case. And while we were watching the TV live, the second plane hit the tower. And I ran upstairs immediately, and my wife didn't realize until she heard me running out the door that I had left, and it was a commander for aviation flight facility there. And Salem, Oregon. And, you know, we just we didn't know what was happening. We didn't have a full grasp. We just knew that there were some significant things taking place in our country. And I went straight to the airfield were medical evacuation unit. We get all the helicopters ready? Started calling in our crews. We actually even went through the point where we took our our transport trucks. We call them deuce and a halfs and rolled him in front of every gate that accessed or base. And called everybody in because we just didn't know what was next. And I'll never remember. They will never forget that day. You know, walking out. We actually called the tower because they closed all air traffic and for the first time In my entire time there, we actually walked out on the active runway and it was so quiet. None of us had ever seen like that. It just was such a kind of an eerie experience at the time. Well, sir, and nobody really knew what was going on for days. And some of the other guests that we've had on the show today said that most of the guardsmen across the nation reported for duty without even being called Yes, sir. And that was the case. People just started showing up immediately, Um, because you know his guards and that's what we do. You know, our motto is always ready always there, and they were living through that just them, leaving their work driving there. I just remember even that day in Oregon was a beautiful day and everybody was coming in. What can I do? What are we going to do? Where, you know? How can we make a difference today? And it was. It was pretty amazing. We're speaking with General Daniel Wilkinson, chief of the National Guard Bureau in Minnesota Military radio. Sure, 20 years have passed of the National Guard, of course, has the federal mission and in the state or local mission in the last couple years have been really busy, But one of the significant things that have happened the last 20 years is Your position. Chief of the National Guard Bureau has a seat at the table of the Joint Chiefs, and I can I assume that that means that's a result of increased missions so much going on that. You need to be there and be part of those discussions and then come back and say Okay, we got some more missions Who's available? Yes, sir. And I think when you look at that, you know The over 450,000 army and Air National Guardsman. You know, we're 1/5 of the joint force the entire military so one in every five people wearing a military uniform is in the National Guard. And what we have shown or demonstrated, really, Since 9 11 is the National Guard went from a previous mission really is a strategic reserve. In case there was a World war. To where now we're an operational reserve, where everyone in the National Guard today has either reenlisted or re upped since 9 11 or they have enlisted since then. And the expectation is today is that they're going to serve their country overseas that they're going to be involved in missions outside the country as well as serving their communities every single day. And I try and remind folks, you know when we look at the National Guard. The guard was really designed as the combat reserve in the Army and Air Force where man trained and equipped to fight and win our nation's wars. But all of that manning training and equipping also really makes us capable to respond to the literally anything in our communities. And if you look back over the past 20 years since 9 11, of course, we had over a million soldiers and airmen deploy overseas and supporting combat operations. But we also had Hurricane Katrina. Numerous other hurricanes. Record wildfire seasons, flooding all those things that our communities see each and every day. And of course, over the past year, you saw the significant contributions of the guard has put towards civil disturbance operations. And, of course, the Covid pandemic, Sir, I was going to say that the last two years it seems like the National Guardsmen busier than I've ever seen him to serve, and we've watched over the last 11 years. That even in the Minnesota National Garden in the 34th entry division goes through the training cycles, and by the time they finish up at NTC National Training Center, here it comes. Here comes another big deployment. So you're you're highly trained and ready to go and And off they go on your federal duties. But state duties have taken a lot of times last with as you say that coronavirus and ends civil disturbance. Yeah, Israel, like the 34th is a great example. I mean, they were the first unit in the Army to go to the National training Center and Covid environment, and that's just coming off of all the events and Minneapolis. And you know, they're really representative the entire national Guard. You know, it goes back to living true to that model, always ready always there whenever we had asked, and that's where our guardsmen become members of the National Guard. They want to be in their communities have their civilian career in their family. But they also want to make a.

There's a lot of that going on. Great to have you with us today, Uh, want to focus for a moment on an organization that was created, Uh, in order to assist women who are being sexually harassed by out of control men Remember, the group was called Time's up, and it was founded by an All Star cast. People like Oprah were involved in its launch, but Since then it's become something of a disaster. A corrupt disaster for more on this I want to bring in Mary Margaret Ola hand. She's a social issues writer for the Daily caller and joins us now, Mary Margaret. Good afternoon. Hey, Vince. Thanks for having me. Of course. Great to have you with us. So this organization time's up. It's It's synonymous with the me too movement, right? Yeah, it was created at the height of the me too. Movement, and they really stood by Christine Blasi, four during the Kavanaugh hearings. I mean, they rallied the troops to get all these people out to protest that created signs they were behind believe survivors believe all women. So they really pushed this. Me, too. Movement momentum to help Christine Ford Mhm. Okay, so they get involved in and representing women who are making allegations against men. But it very quickly seems like they became yet another Democrat party political operation. How did it manifest itself? Well, it's probably because time's up is chock full of democratic strategist and operative. Ah, and they they as we see in the results of the Cuomo investigation. They're very much implicated in helping Cuomo try and disparages accuser. So back in January. 2020 we know that terror Reid, who accused Joe Biden sexual assault, she went two times up and ask them to help her accuse him. And they told her in February 2020, but because they're nonprofit, and because Biden was a candidate for president, they couldn't help her now. My colleague Andrea Curtin, are really good. P three talk to strategists. And nonprofit experts and legal advisers, and they all said, this reasoning is kind of iffy doesn't make a lot of sense. No, they're all sorts of non profits that exist explicitly to hold political figures accountable. And in this one, this was not about their politics is not about policy. It's explicitly over whether or not they sexually harassed, abused or assaulted. The woman in question. So there was, there is nothing within nonprofit law that would preclude the time's up organization from helping Tara Reade. The only thing that precluded them from doing that is that they were connected to Joe Biden now. Yeah, exactly and terrorist is, you know, perfect profile of exactly the kind of person that time's up would want to defend. You know, they're created to defend women who are accusing high profile men of sexual harassment or assault. And now we know in the fallout from the Cuomo investigation. We've seen people digging into time's up in their operations were finding out that when Terra read came forward and accused Joe Biden, a sexual assault Tina Chen, the quote founder of times up with fundraising for Biden on her own time, and a bunch of women's groups came forward and told her that they wanted to come out and tell Biden to address the allegations because you know media was ignoring it. Biden hadn't denied it. Yet it was absurd. And so these women's groups wanted to come out and write a letter and demands that Biden addressed the allegations. And Chen, this co founder of Time's Up, said, No, wait. I'm in contact with the Biden campaign. They're going to let me know they're going to issue a statement. Students And so they waited. And when Biden finally said denied the allegations on MSNBC later that day, 10 also went on MSNBC and praised Biden for his transparency. Then time's up, released a statement also praising Biden for his transparency. And that night, 10 went through a Biden fundraiser online. Okay, So Tina Channel you just referenced again, one of the co founders of this time's up organization. She used to be Michelle Obama's chief of staff as well. Michelle Obama, of course, has been one of the believe all women people. And here you have this organization just straight up, ignoring refusing to help, even though they're being requested to do it, Tara Reid and on the side there, of course, fundraising. For Joe Biden. So I mean, it seems like a pretty obvious inside deal designed not to believe all women but to punish the ones who dare threaten their political power. Well, it gets worse Vince because we found out later, You know, The New York Times obtained some slides, that time's up with putting together and, uh, with a polling firm on surveying attitudes on sexual harassment and a thought And the Times obtained some slides. That time's up, never published where it turns out. Time's up, was working on how to help candidates respond to allegations of sexual assault. And it kind of begs the question. Why is Time's up an organization founded to help women the champion of women helping candidates figure out how to respond to allegations of sexual? Uh huh? It's a racket is the answer to that. So this is like the Al Sharpton move, like, pay me. I won't call you a racist. So time's up kind of tries to pull the same stunt..

Get prepared to celebrate Independence Day. Uh, today's job news brought us, uh, something else to celebrate. This morning. We learned that in June, our economy created 850,000 jobs. 850,000 jobs, wages went up for American workers. Since it took office. Our recovers created an average $600,000.60 dollars. I wish they probably wish those 600,000 jobs paid $600,000 a year but 600,000 jobs per month. You now created over three million jobs as it took office more jobs that have ever been created in the first five months of any presidency in modern history. Thanks to the incredible work of the entire teeth, this is historic progress, pulling our economy out of the worst crisis in 100 years, driven apart by our dramatic progress and vaccinating our nation and beating back to pandemic, as well as other elements of the American rescue plan. Today, the U. S is the only major advanced economy where the O E C D projections of future output are higher today than they were in January. 2020 before the pandemic, Kid and America was ranked first. In Bloomberg's Covid resilience ranking. None of this happened by accident again. It's a direct result of the American rescue plan. And at the time people question whether or not we should do that, even though we didn't have bipartisan support, well, it worked. In February, the Congressional Budget Office projected 2021 economic growth would be 3.7% yesterday. They double that number to 7.4% in large part thanks to American rescue plan in our work to defeat the virus. The last time the economy grew at this rate was in 1984 and Ronald Reagan was telling us it's morning in America. Well, it's getting close to afternoon here. The sun is coming out at the time, the CBO revised their long run deficit projections down as a share of GDP. They just have done so the American rescue plan to strengthen our financial position and it grows. Our economy is continuing to grow our economy and the strength. Our recovery is helping us flip the script instead of workers competing with each other for jobs that are scarce, employers are competing with each other to attract workers. That kind of competition in the market doesn't just give workers more ability to earn higher wages. It also gives him the power to demand to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace. More jobs, better wages. That's a good combination. Put simply, our economy is on the move, and we have covid 19 on the run. Yes, we have more work to do to get America vaccinated and everyone back to work. We're aiming for full employment. That means keeping our patient jobs growth, including for black, Hispanic and Asian workers. But this progress is testament to our commitment to grow this economy from the bottom up in the middle out America. Can rescue plan provided resources to get shots of people's arms and checks in people's pockets. Schools. Schools were struggling to reopen, so he made vaccinating teachers of priority getting school for much needed support in March. We've added just the month of March that is 364,000 education jobs of the roles. Small businesses and restaurants are getting crushed. Now we're delivering the loans and support they need to reopen and to stay open this morning. We've learned the jobs in some hard hit sectors such as restaurants, hotels, amusement parks were up by 300. Over 1.5 million in the past five months and more help was on the way to give families just a little bit more breathing room starting this month family are going to receive one of the largest ever single year tax cuts the middle class families have ever received, has called the child care tax credit, and here's how it works. In the past. If you pay taxes and had your good income, you can deduct $2000 per child and that would come off the total amount of taxes. Yoda had two Children. You know, $10,000 you take off $4000 in the American rescue plan. We expanded that now, uh, apparent would get $3600 for each child under the age of six and $3000 for dependence they have between the ages of six and 17. So instead of just being a credit against the taxes you owe. It's now fully refundable credit, half of which will get paid out and monthly basis. Look what that means is this year, middle class families with two young Children can expect to get receive a $7200.

Welcome back. Hey, thanks for having me Keith really appreciate it. Jason Black Hearts of super Cool concept before we get into that. I want to know your story. How did you get into black cart? What were you doing before they've done a lot of stuff? Yeah. Um I started my my e commerce journey at Groupon around age 24. I I was I was there pre IPO. So it was a very early employee at Groupon and, uh, really just got caught the bug. I enjoyed what I was doing when it comes to creating processes and selling and building teams and Was there for about five years. So, um, yeah, I saw the IPO and a couple years after I left was doing a lot of consulting some e commerce advising, And actually, I was at a startup called Doorman. Doorman was a essentially an on demand scheduled delivery solution. So if you were to order a package from Nordstrom instead of sending the package to your work or to home The package would automatically be rerouted to the doorman warehouse or then we doorman would send you a text message to say, Hey, Keith, your genes are here from Nordstrom. When do you want them? And you would say, Well, I'm doing a podcast with an awesome guide today and then I'm going to the gym and out to dinner. So, bringing eight p.m. tonight. Doorman would bring you the package within a one hour window. It was at this company doorman that I met Dani, the CEO and founder of Black Heart. This was back in 2017. And at that point in time, black heart was a B two. C So a business to consumer chrome extension that you would download you would have to, um, sign up and log in. It was a very clunky experience. But the idea the core idea of bringing the in store shopping experience online was there. So I became an adviser in Black heart back in 2017, and that's kind of how I got to where I am today as chief revenue officer. That's a great story. I mean, going from group on the black card and catching the wave group on, um during the IPO. That must have been an awesome time. So let's talk more about the transition. So black card start off as like this little chrome extension. Um how did it then become What it is now, which is kind of a try before you buy platform. Yes. So, um, So Donny, you're going to CEO and founder, um, was accepted to 500 startups. So it's for those who don't know it's an incubator program Mountain, San Francisco. I think it was a 12 or 15 week boot camp. Donnie graduates. Um 500 startups invest money into the company and we ended up raising a seed round back in. I think it was January of 2000 and 19 I believe Yeah, 2019. Because in January 2020 is when we raised our series a round of financing. Yep. And so with Donny going through 500 startups. Was there was the idea really big before fiber service, Or was there some pivoting involved in that time frame? We kind of had the idea to shift the model to go from B to C to B to B. So the goal was. How do we essentially mirror or mimic the quote unquote normal default online shopping experience, And that's if black heart goes directly to the retailer. So don't try to have the customer jumped through hoops or go through a separate protocol. Let's give them the same online shopping experience they have now today. With the exception that they don't have to actually buy things up front. In order to actually interact with them. So there's no upfront payments and therefore customers are going to order more. They're going to have an in store shopping experience. Um, that's not going to require upfront payment. That's the crazy part of it, and and it's something I want to get in a lot deeper in a little bit, but at the highest level, would you say that black card is black card ultimately is bringing power back to the consumers. So if you think about a key since the year, 2000 when E commerce launched we as a society we're so happy, so thrilled. To be able to sit at home on our couch or on our you know, at our desk and order a book from Amazon that we didn't care about paying up front. But if you think about it, it's completely. It's completely backwards. Completely wrong. We would never go into a Nordstrom and take three pairs of shoes are three pairs of jeans to a dressing room. And Norton says Cool, Keith, give your credit card. We're gonna We're gonna charge you for these genes are about to try on You would say no way. I'm not going to do that. So there's this disconnect between in store shopping, an online shopping and so black cards. Goal is to say, Wait a minute. Why are we all why? Why do we just become accustomed and okay with paying upfront for these things, That's not how it should be. So with black heart. We really believe that we're creating a fundamental shift in the way that people interact with e commerce and the vision of the company. The 10 year vision is to have the default way to transact online is through try before you buy. Yeah, that is a totally fundamental shift, and there was so much happening. I remember, um when Amazon was first getting started And generally.

It was William Certain is the one who brought it to all of us. And to all of you, he cybersecurity Porter at Bloomberg News joining us on the phone from New York City, William I'm still reeling from reading this story because it's terrifying and in so many different ways. What did this group of hackers do? Well, thanks for having me so they owned as hackers say they have this company in the worst possible way. They got into an account at this. This Security camera company Club Kolkata that allows them to look through the camera of all of its customers, and not only that they could look at the cameras live on day could also look at the archives of the videos that those customers had stored. From those cameras and in some cases of cameras were using facial recognition technology, which the hackers could also interact with. How is that so easy? Well, uh, you know, it's obviously there's multiple investigations going on at the company right now. T answer that question. But, you know, they got in through exposed credentials. So you know a user name and password for so called super admin account. I've been left out there publicly on the Internet. Um you know, it's sloppy. It's bad security practice on DATs how it happened. What do we know about about the group that that did this? Who is Tilly Cotman. Well. Kelly Cotman is a 21 year old with citizen who could've packed with an anti capitalist anti surveillance when he won world view. Um and you know they seek to kind of China light on on what they see is a abuse of technology. And then capitalism gone too far. I mean, that's what this is about, right? Shedding a light to say. Hey, folks, I don't know if you're aware of it. You've all gotten so used to having cameras all around you like we all have a camera on our phone. But did you realize what that really means? Right, and another aspect of this that really isn't being discussed. Much is like these hackers could have done something much worse. They could have sat in this system for a long time and lost it all this confidential video. They could have, you know, utilized the cameras to launch other hats in the future. They could have tried to hack the networks of Ricardo's, uh, customers. But they didn't do that. They came to a journalist and they blew the whistle. Silver Kata, the company at the center of this It's a startup that was founded back in 2016 itself, Security cameras that customers can access through the Web. Obviously, they've raised $80 million in jazz of January. 2020 values the company at $1.6 billion What does this mean for the company? And what have you heard from the company Since you published this Well, obviously terrible for the company's reputation, right? They have so many high profile customers, not only high profile customers, a Tesla and cloud Fair right be exposing this put off the schools, hospitals, jails. Um, you know, it's terrible for the reputation and you know their companies that tries to sell their security is one of their teachers. And you know what I'm hearing from the company is not much there. Um um Doing an investigation, and they contacted law enforcement. But you haven't heard too much more. They restrict the hackers no longer have access

"january 2020" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"It didn't start in January 2020. It began from years of collaboration and work on SARS coronavirus on MERS coronavirus with investments that were put in place because Because the world knew that a high threat respiratory passages beyond influenza was always a threat. This was one of our disease X that we considered as high as a potential to be an epidemic or pandemic. And so there was investments in that work in that area and that space to think through that we would need diagnostics, Therapeutics and vaccines for Corona viruses. We were using mercy Rota virus Little did we know that it would be a brand new coronavirus in the beginning of the end of 2019 and early 2021 2020, But I think when it from our perspective, what we need are multiple vaccines, multiple safe and effective vaccines that can be produced around the world so that we could have production capacities to be distributed at a different temperatures under different types of conditions on so that supply Can reach the world's population. Our goal as the World health Organization with our partners and part of our Kovacs facility is to ensure that we have vaccines and vaccination that reached those who need it most in every country not only vaccines for everyone in a few countries, this is a massive goal of ours. And it goes beyond the rhetoric that goes beyond the world words and commitments. We have to follow through on bits about this fair allocation of this, and so we work with our our sage group. Prioritize who should receive these vaccines first, which is in line with what you've heard previously, but we need to make sure that that reaches all countries on bats. Themes are different than vaccination, as you know, actually producing the vaccines and having vaccines and vaccination into someone's arm. Completely different things you know, to hear that we're at a point now, where there's wasted is heartbreaking to me. I understand the reasons for this. Andre is incredibly difficult to plan the rollout and to make sure that you have the people who to do this who are incredibly busy dealing with patients dealing with primary care and secondary care and tertiary care and home care on belong term care. It's another thing to make sure that we get those vaccines in the arms of those individuals. But I would To highlight that vaccination is one aspect of control of covert. It is not a silver bullet. It will not end this pandemic alone. And given that even if vaccine rollout was perfect, it would take time to vaccinate the amount of people that we would need to reduce not only morbidity mortality but to reduce transmission to actually have an impact of preventing infections. So that we would see a reduction in transmission. We have tools. Now he's non pharmaceutical interventions. These public health measures that you hear wh o speak about repeatedly and I have heard Dr Gounder Dr. Wen speak about repeatedly that we can do and must continue to do now one of the things we will be spending a lot of time on in in the early months of 2021 is really understanding the barriers to compliance. Why aren't people wearing masks? Why aren't people physical distancing? Arguably Right now? One of the most important things you could do is physical distance we have seen over the last several weeks with the holiday period. Ah, lot of travel. Ah, lot of mixing. If you consider how many contacts you had While you were isolating and really restricting your movement compared to what you did over the holiday period. We could argue that many people increase the number of people that they came in contact with that increases risk. And that will have a profound impact on transmission hospitalizations. I see you in mortality in the first few months of this of this year, But we know what works in terms of physical distancing mask wearing hand hygiene, avoiding crowded spaces opening a window. All of these measures staying home If you're unwell, it's a comprehensive approach. It's not one measure is enough masks alone are not enough hand. Hygiene is not enough. It has to be all of it together in this public health. Structure that has to be used are what other countries would have controlled Colvin have used as their foundation to show that this virus can be brought to its knees. Even without vaccination. Vaccines are a powerful tool in vaccinations are a powerful tool, and I'm so grateful we have them They will help us end this pandemic. But it's that public health infrastructure. It's about community based workers, active case finding cluster investigation, isolating cases, arguably what we saw. Cross Asia across the Pacific and money countries in Africa. Isolation of cases outside of the home, quarantining of contacts for 14 days, making sure that you you prevent the virus. Don't given an opportunity to spread to somebody else. These break chains of transmission. That's easy for me to say people need to be supported in doing so. So we need strong leadership to be able to do that. And I come back to the last point. You know, we need Not only good communication, we need open, honest, regular communication that points out what we know it points out what we don't know. But importantly, it points out what we're doing to figure this out. It's not enough to say we don't know yet. It's important to say we've got the people who are on this. We're on it and where we're working really hard to get the answers to this, and those answers will feed into our response. We were course correct, if necessary. That's not a weakness. That's a strength on DSA. If we are able to be open and honest about that, to be aggressive in our approach, to be comprehensive, in our approach to make sure that we engage, enable and empower our communities, so that they're part of this fight with us. We have. If you use your wartime metaphor, we have an entire army of people that help fight against this pandemic on bats. That's really what we need. E was in cryogenic that we're dealing with with information. We're just not meant to deal with this much information coming to us all the time on go willful misuse of some of that information and disinformation has really been damaging. Um, I think none of us would argue that we should let science lead the way and let data lead our approach. But we really are fighting against some very powerful forces that we have to figure out how to work through on. I think all of us are doing our best to try to figure out how we tackle How we tackle this on Ben. We just need to hang in there. You know, we need to be really focused. We need everybody to do everything that they can while vaccines are being rolled out to protect themselves and their loved ones don't it's it's not enough to do it for yourself. Do it for your loved ones. You know, protect yourself and protect your loved ones because there is still so much that we could do as these vaccines are rolled out globally. Dr Maria Van Kirk overs with the World Health Organization, one of this a virtual panel and a discussion yesterday hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The moderator is Aaron David Miller of the endowment. Growth. Thank you so much for that. I want to pick up on one of the main point you made. I want to read to the three of you. This morning's, uh, coronavirus update from The New York Times The numbers continue to climb. The case counts too fast. The vaccinations not fast enough most days since early December, the U. S is added more than 200,000. New covert infections. Four states, among them an island Tennessean, Oklahoma all reported cases that extraordinarily high levels in the fourth is we know California more than 240,000 cases. Have been reported in the L. A area in just two weeks with higher caseloads have come more death seven day averages above 2600 Day, and on Wednesday, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma reported single day records for deaths. In the variant. The mutation that surgeon in Britain has the potential to explode in the US in the next few weeks, experts warn that the country is ill equipped Track it. I want to get it this whole notion of the relationship between this surging disease burden and the issue of vaccination, Doctor Bank above your point, I think support support the question. I was going to ask you the three of you. Which is this? Is it still the case that.
‘Conflict trap’ a growing obstacle to sustainable development - UN chief
"Greater international efforts unneeded to help countries breakout a conflict trap. That's holding back their development. The un secretary general told the security council on wednesday in a discussion on maintaining peace and security in fragile context. Antonio guitarist warned that conflicts have become more complex fueled by greater regionalization as well as by increasing numbers of non state armed groups with links to crime and terrorism misty guitarist cited world bank data indicating that one in five people in the middle east and africa lives in close proximity to a major conflict and that needs have reached their highest level since the second world war and it was no coincidence that of the fifteen countries susceptible to climate risks eight host a united nations peacekeeping operation or special political mission. The un chief said from the hell and central africa to the horn of africa itself. Mr guitarist noted that changes in rainfall had disrupted cattle herding patterns leading to recurring clashes between communities across national borders to break this cycle of poverty and conflict the secretary general called for more targeted and tailored investments to building and sustaining peace
The Carlat Psychiatry Podcast
The Metformin Recall
"With a blood pressure medication. Losartan scientist had an online pharmacy was screening products for potential carcinogens when they saw an alarming pig in a probable carcinogen and Nitro Sada methylamine off India May levels. They'll Sergeant was recalled in July of 2018 and it was followed by the recalls of five other India, May contaminated medications, November 2018 the off-chance and two receptor blockers irbesartan and losartan September 2019 and January 2020 the over-the-counter reflux medicines Ranitidine and not seeing those recalls started hitting closer to home between May and October 2020 when the FDA recalled 179 batches of Metformin ER, So what is India May 1st what it's not ndma is not nmda. Nmda is well known in Psychiatry is the limit ergic receptor involved in the mechanisms of medications that antagonize the nmda receptor things like ketamine and Lamotrigine experimental antidepressants like amantadine resolved. Mantine dextromethorphan and drugs of abuse like PCP alcohol and two that have both therapeutic properties and abuse potential MDMA and ketamine these all have to do with an MDA which has nothing to do with ndma. These drugs reduce the effects of excess baggage automate which is toxic a little bit of glutamate in the brain is good, but too much is toxic. Back to ndma, which is also toxic but in a different way, it's a carcinogen that causes mutations in DNA and it is directly damaging to deliver even small amounts of deadly and there have been several prominent homicides where ndma was used as a poison resulting in death through hepatotoxicity on the other hand and the amazed everywhere. It's a byproduct of wastewater treatment with chlorine and that water flows through our tap into the soil where the ndma collects in the plants and vegetables that we eat. And EMA is also one of the reasons that were warned against eating grilled and charred meets. It's one of those cancer-causing nitrosamine is that forms when meat is grilled or smoked it's particularly high in smoked sausages nitrosamine Czar also found in beers. Cheese's sausages bacon and cheese. Foods that are smoked or pickled in salt. So how much India May these recalled medications producing with Ranitidine ndma levels Rose nine-fold higher than the odd for safety level four medications, but that's safety level which the FDA set for medication seems very conservative 0.096 micrograms per day. The typical diet is about twice as much ndma. And if you're drinking a lot of alcohol or eating Smoked Meats, your typical diet will have a lot more indirme in it part of the reason the safety limit is set. So low is that the FDI assumes that the ndma four medications is on top of the ndma already present in our daily Foods a pound of steak has three times as much ndma as the upper age limit for medications, but what really matters is cancer there the FDA is given us some data on the first recalled medication Valsartan if eight thousand people took those starting at the dog Some dos for four years while the drug was contaminated there would be one additional case of cancer. And remember that's at the max dose which is important because in Psychiatry, we certainly don't use the max dose of Metformin. We don't have numbers like that format form in yet. So that one in 8000 number might be slightly reassuring but when we're talking about things like cancer and lung damage, it's not exactly reassuring and we still don't know the cause of all this ndma contamination. The best guess is that it's a byproduct of the manufacturing process, but the proper points towards a troubling Trend in drug quality as manufacturing has shifted overseas in the past two decades. We are seeing more problems with medications right now about 40% of medication to the US are manufactured overseas and even when they are produced in the US around eighty percent of the ingredients come from abroad So what's wrong with going overseas? Well historically the US has had the tightest regulatory control of manufacturing safety and medications. The FDA has been the gold standard wage, but it's difficult for the FDA to regulate overseas manufacturing because they can't do what they do best surprise visits to get into another country. They have to work through governmental agencies and plan their trips to arrange these inspections and that allows the drug companies precious time to prepare for the inspectors. Most of the problems have come from manufacturers in India and China and if you're interested in this Kathryn even has detailed all the Gory details in a best-selling book bottle of Lies. We're going to be interviewing her sometime next month. The original Valsartan contamination came from a Chinese firm Sweet Pea this firm changed their manufacturing process and 2011 and am supposed to announce that to the FDA because it can create byproducts and things that might be damaging and would require new inspection but against regulations they did not announce the change in manufacturing jobs,
