But he's seen one large grey kangaroos. reuss still alive and the tracks of some wallabies a few birds have returned. Butler and his wife used this place to hold camps and workshops and aboriginal culture than a program for troubled indigenous youth. School groups would come to learn about native art. History and food fire was a key issue. They teach about far in. This place is zero friend. Fire has been used by tying to look after this whole continent forever. Native peoples used what they called cool burns as low intensity fires intended to balance the various plants and trees growing in an area how we maintain that balance is far by not letting any wanting dominate the eucalyptus shouldn't be allowed to overrun all the other trees.

Australians Debate What To Do About Climate Change
"USTRALIAN still have time talking about climate change. Despite suffering record-breaking temperatures and unprecedented fire season global warming is generally accepted as fact in the country that just experienced its hottest and driest year on record in two thousand nineteen but Australia is also the the world's largest exporter of coal after hearing the parliamentary election. One of the biggest issues was what the media term. The Climate Wars Australian voters rejected the Labor Party which was lobbying for the country to move aggressively away from fossil fuels. NPR's Jason Bobi and reports from Sydney unlike debate on the issue in the US. For for a Lotta people refuse to accept establish science in Australia. The debate is more about the urgency of climate change. And how much should be done on it. How quickly with smoke? In the the air the record heat the ongoing drought millions and millions of acres of land on fire. There are daily reminders of the reality of the changing planet. But that doesn't mean people people agree on what should be done about it if you go back a couple of decades. There was largely bipartisan support in terms of climate action. That's Mark Houten.

But that's the malady that afflicts thighs opposite how the Australian National University says the polarization around on climate change has kept the country for moving forward.

What's really extraordinary in Australia? is even though the politics are actually very toxic and problematic.

"Measles is one of the most contagious human viruses in the world but for years it was nearly wiped out it was nearly wiped out but for some reason the virus is now coming back. The World Health Organization says in a new report that that nearly a hundred and forty thousand people died from measles worldwide last year there were measles outbreaks on every continent that year. This year's numbers appear to be even higher hire all. This appears to be happening. Despite a safe and effective vaccine that has been used for decades. The question is why are we backsliding. NPR's Jason Bobi and has been looking into. What's what's going on here Jason? Hey Good morning so I will admit before these numbers came out I did not even think about. Measles is a major public health concern anymore. I mean the vaccine when I was a kid. So it'd basically everyone I know. Yeah I mean. Measles is story of incredible progress against the disease. I mean in the pre vaccine it was killing like a million people a year and sort of in the nineteen eighties was way up there and it was just steadily going down and this was one of these diseases that looked like yeah the trend line which is going to go straight down. It's is GonNa get wiped out but then it sort of bottomed out on that progress in two thousand sixteen and this year things are worse. It was below hundred thousand thousand deaths a year in two thousand sixteen now. It's up to one hundred and forty malaria which we don't have a decent vaccine for and is a major problems killing four hundred thousand thousand so seeing measles push back up towards that. It's you know it's really concerning to big deal. Do we know why this is happening. As we both said there is a vaccine right. There is a very effective vaccine. It's been around for fifty years. The issue is that measles virus is a super spreader. If you're not vaccinated this we'll get we'll get you out in their it'll spread to you. I talked to Robert. Lincoln's he's the head of vaccine preventable diseases over at the. CDC and he says that this resurgence of measles is showing that there are these problems in basic healthcare delivery systems. Globally measles is the canary in the coal mine. It indicates that there are problems community with other vaccine. Preventable disease coverage and In many respects it's a it's a it's a signal that we've got to pay more attention to where Musil's curry. Sorry you know. There's two issues. One is that just simply delivering it in some parts of the world sort of infrastructure problems as part of that. And then there's these anti vaccination movements that have really cut into the progress against measles where are the anti vaccination people. Were they coming from. Well it really is different in different places. Some of it is a growing skepticism. Awesome about anything related to the government. That's part of it and that's going on some you know in social media then you've had some scandals in different parts of the world In Samoa we've got a big outbreak going on right. At the moment. They've shut down the schools. There was two children who died after vaccine was improperly mixed so that really cuts into people's confidence but overall this is a very effective vaccine. It is something that can be dealt with. You know unfortunately we're moving in the wrong direction right now. NPR's NPR's Jason Bobby and Jason. Thanks so much you're welcome.
A Place Where The Opioid Problem Is Upside Down
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply all right here in the United States too much access to opioids has led to rampant addiction and overdose but we're going to hear from a part of the world facing the exact opposite problem a lack of powerful pain medications in the Gambia in West Africa. Doctors want greater access to opioids. They say they can help speed a patient's recovery. NPR's Jason Bovine traveled there recently as part of our ongoing look at treating pain and and the story does contain some uncomfortable medical details. It's mid morning at the Gambia's only teaching hospital orthopedic Surgeon Cabot Marina is talking with several nurses about two operations that they're about to start. I just bring it into the United States. It's not going to be perfect. MARINA IS A fit thirty seven year old. He's pulling on scrubs. He and his staff are looking up an X. Rays of leg bones and a light box on the wall. A curtain divides the operating room into on the left is a fourteen year old. He fractured his knee in a soccer game in a collision goalie. His parents say he almost scored on the right is a twenty nine year old man. He was in a nasty car crash a week earlier and Tibia is now protruding coming from his Shin Doctrine says operations like these pain is unavoidable hammers and saws and Gills and things like that so so afterwards old patients expected how some pain but in the Gambia managing that pain can be difficult. I the Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many medications including painkillers are in short supply and even if Moreno can get powerful opioids for his patients nurses on the general wards aren't trained to administer or monitor them. Dr Moreno spent the last thirteen years working in the United Kingdom. He says one of the striking things about returning. Home is the contrast pain management everyone I I end up. I have to leave the world when they were doing dressings because I couldn't handle the screams but you get used to it which is not great but it's what you have to do. In order to survive in the environment lived in the operating room. Dr Moreno does have access to anesthesia for the two surgeries on this day. Each patient will get a spinal block. It makes their legs. Go numb highly effective. You've at one point the fourteen year old asks. What's my leg doing up there as a nurse moves them around on the bed patient on the right is getting a steel pin driven vertically from mm-hmm is need to almost as ankle to stabilize his broken? Tibia in the UK. Both these patients would be completely asleep under general anesthesia but not here. That's partly because this country of two million people doesn't have any anesthesiologists. The only ones working in the Gambia are doctors on loan from China or Cuba so ninety eight percent of Anaesthesia Services Don byas Mahmoud El Moussa borrow heads the College of Nursing at the American International University West Africa in the Gambian capital bright across the country all had facilities well rations stick. Please where what you find the semester these specially trained nurses. I can do many of the procedures that full anesthesiologist would but there aren't many of them and they tend to work mainly in surgical operating rooms they aren't present and labor in delivery wards leaving most women here to give birth with no pain medication at all back at the surgical ward doctrine just finished resetting setting the bones and the teenagers knee he twisted the leg back into place drilled three hole through the top of the knee and secured the joint with wires sitting have to open the skin off but it still we'll be painful think you saw how. I had to bend it back into place the start and he will be sore afterwards. If I have been doing this operation in England the boy would have gotten a local anesthetic around the joint ease the pain as he wakes up but again not here the pain meds that are readily available in the Gambia are generic versions of pilot and advil an aspirin. The only narcotic clinicians sometimes dispense is a synthetic opioid called tram at all. It's considered less powerful and less addictive than opioids like oxycodone or morphine. Meanwhile the operation on the other table is continuing north comedic surgeon from China is literally hammering Rod until the twenty nine year olds leg first couple of attempts didn't go so well. I may have to back out the Pan A. and try again but doctrine is confident. It will all work. He says these pins are highly effective before they made up and walking and they usually went home. even the next day broken leg one day walking out onto the streets of London the next but only because their pain was well controlled with opioids doctrine doesn't predict such a tranquil post surgical recovery for this guy. The patient is clearly uncomfortable gripping the table as the hammering continues and he still under under the spinal anesthetic off in about six hours time then there's usually some screaming on the words and and it just takes some getting used to the patient and stuff as well in the absence of a strong pain medication. It'll be several days. Maybe a week before this man can put any weight on his leg. These patients are also likely elite experience flare ups of what Dr McCall's breakthrough pain in the UK Moreno with treat this with oral morphine but morphine isn't available on the wards here for the fourteen year old who just had knee surgery his recovery starts on a trip on a Gurney to the pediatric ward. The Children's Ward is actually sleep in another building across the street from the main hospital. There are no rails on the Gurney and he slides around as the orderly pushes him through the potholed streets. Finally he arrives at the crowded kids ward. His legs are still numb from the anesthetic during surgery his father Hassan Manual. Camara says they know his recovery will take time where they were. Just try to support him as much as possible. Kamara worries about his son being in pain but he recognizes that he just had surgery. He doesn't expect his son to be comfortable. Dr Moreno wishes he had stronger pain meds for his patients. This teen will be hurting for the the next few days but despite that Renna says this operation was a success is now he's going to straight Meghan into suffer the rest they may not have access a strong opioids but Dr Moreno and the other caregivers here have confidence that their patients will heal and eventually the pain will go away Jason Bobi.

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start. Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast. Here's one sign of how deep the crisis in Venezuela is it's healthcare system has collapsed. Regional officials say a measles outbreak that began. There was not controlled. It's now spreading throughout South America, and some basic medical supplies and medications, even surgical gloves are no longer available in clinics in Venezuela. And peers Jason Bogan has more by just about every measurement possible. Venezuela's once impressive medical system has fallen apart the Latin American nation with the largest oil reserves in the world is now dealing with an ongoing measles outbreak that last year sick and thousands of people and killed at least seventy four clinics have run out of basic surgical supply. Lies and anti-biotics routine. Vaccination campaigns have been suspended even patients dependent on saving HIV medications have seen supplies of their anti-aids drugs. Disappear. Dr Kathleen page recently visited camps in northern Brazil for some of the three million Venezuelans who fled the country that was not a doctor in the nineteen eighties. When the as make started. But I know what happened and I felt that in these wars I was going back to the nineteen eighties page in infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins Medical school says she was shocked to see aids. Patients from Venezuela dying of opportunistic, infections, honig diarrhea infections in their brain things that that we know are treatable and preventable page traveled to the Brazilian Venezuelan border late last year as part of a fact-finding trip for Human Rights Watch I interviewed over one hundred people crossing the border, and I would ask them. Why did you come ubiquitously? The answer was food or healthcare. Many people told her they'd been surviving for months on a diet. Only of Yuka a rugged shrub that has a potato like root in the late nineteen ninety s Hugo Chavez promised free universal healthcare in Venezuela and the country quickly met most of the US healthcare targets by twenty ten but since then the country's much fond in healthcare system has collapsed. Infant mortality the rate at which kids under the age of one or dying is widely viewed as a barometer of a nation's overall health. A recent study in Lancet global health found that the nation's infant mortality rate has risen all the way back to where it was in the nineteen ninety s Jimmy Garcia is one of the authors of that study choking. I mean, we have eighteen years of broiler study is choking and kids are suffering and dying from simple things at the Brazilian border. Dr page met a woman in her ten year old daughter who just come out of Venezuela. The girl was in a wheelchair and needed a catheter. They had been using the same catheter for a year. These theaters is supposed to be. Changed every time you use them. And now she had infection those affecting her kidney. And there was no antibiotics, so they actually pushed her, you know, two hundred miles across the border two hundred miles on foot for a catheter and some antibiotics page who's originally from Uruguay says the health conditions. She saw among the Venezuelans were startling, particularly given Venezuela's reputation as a relatively wealthy Latin American country and these refugees weren't fleeing a war zone, the devastation that you're seeing is not war. It's mismanagement is were economic decisions corruption there's a lot of complicated factors, but it's totally manmade. This is not an actual disaster or something that was inevitable, and that makes the Venezuelan health crisis. She says even more disturbing Jason Bobi, an NPR news.
