Phil Kerpen: An Optimistic Perspective of Omicron Remaining Mild, Predicting Less Lethal Variants

"But you know you mentioned omicron maybe if you said attenuating and that's what the science indicates not in every single case but most respiratory viruses over time You know virus don't have interest they're not conscious but their evolutionary goal if there were one would be obviously to replicate Therefore you don't want to kill off all your hosts or else you have nothing no vehicle to replicate your genetic material So that the trajectory a lot of these respiratory viruses over time has been to become maybe more infectious but less lethal over time I mean again could that be what we're seeing with a now And the science does back that up I'm not just pulling this out of my caboose here That's what's happened Yeah that's typically that's typically kind of how these things end and we had a lot of hopes that that might be what was happening but delta turned out that wasn't the case at all I would say it was pretty severe In fact but in our hopes are high again that will be the case And as I mentioned in South Africa right now they've got kind of extremely high case numbers especially if you look in sort of gauteng province which is Johannesburg area It was kind of the epicenter of the epicenter They've got kind of extremely high case numbers but the hospitalizations have stayed much much lower than previous waves There are a couple of reasons that might be true The virus itself might have attenuated That would be our best case scenario It might just be that everyone there has already had it before And so these are reinfections and that's why they're more miles And so if that's the case it might not be as good news And so look there's still some uncertainty right now but I like to be an optimist and I think that this data looks really good And I wouldn't be freaking out and saying this is bad news date I think so far what we're seeing is pretty

Just go to weld without wind dot com and click on the membership top. So let's get my guest today into being a lady who's pretty well known here in south africa. Her name is maryanne sheera now. Maryanne is a woman before had time. She wrote a book called the natural way more than twenty years ago. An only now is the way of life. She advocates going mainstream on apart from being an author. Marianne is a motivational speaker. And she runs a very successful pekan restaurant as well as running natural health programs. I'll begin by asking maryanne satele to bit about herself. I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across. Imagine yourself in the garden of eden and you craving something sweet. What would you eat. And there was a stately silence and this woman blonde voluptuous woman sitting in the front rows in this deep voice. Adam evan rumor osc that christian. I'm thinking this woman.

South Africa's COVID-19 Variant: What is the risk?

"Let's go to South Africa Festival, the variant of covert there is causing concern among scientists because it has more mutations. But there's no evidence it is deadlier, maybe faster spreading. Let's sir talk to the BBC's Andrew Harding. He's in Johannesburg. Welcome, Andrew. So tell us about this South African variant. We've been talking about it for a while. Here on news day. What is the latest information We have? Good morning. Yes, It's certainly very transmissible as transmissible is the one that's currently spreading so fast across Britain. Likewise here the mutation, one of the key mutations seems to allow the virus to spread to be caught more easily. There's no evidence as you say. Yet, although tests are still being performed here, no evidence that this new mutation makes the virus more deadly. That's the same in Britain and elsewhere. But the concern that people focusing on at the moment is a third mutation. And this is the mutation that Piss to affect the viruses. Ability to connect with other cells on gets that part of the virus that the vaccines are hoping to target on the confirm, which again is now being tested with great speed and urgency here in South Africa. The concern is that there is a theoretical risk that that particular mutation which we haven't seen in Britain or elsewhere. That particular mutation might just might make these new vaccines that are coming onto the market that being jabbed into people's arms already in parts of the world might make those vaccines less effective than might be. Some reservists calls from this new mutation. But scientists here are being very cautious and saying, Look, we will have an answer to that within two or three weeks are Scientists are very busy and are ahead of the curve if you like. They've been studying this aggressively for some time, and they're in a good position to find this out soon, but there is a theoretical risk of some level of resistance. And we know it's one thing we do know through this whole pandemic is that, you know, days matter. Never mind a couple of weeks. So what is the government they're doing whilst this crucial information Has found out about the whether this third variant is resistant to the vaccine. What's the government doing to Stop the spread. Well, I mean, there are two issues there. If you want. One is the vaccine is to South Africa is struggling on the vaccine front is struggling to secure supplies. The concern is that here and in other parts of Africa, it's going to be many months before vaccine start, arriving in sort of numbers needed to create herd immunity in the immediate term in terms of transmission and keeping this second wave under control, a new big, hard lock down Is in place here across South Africa on officials who I think will really caught by surprise By the speed and aggression of this new This new variant are doing what they can The tackle it and contain it. They're saying that look, it's not just the mutations that are driving the spread of this second Wait. It's also human behavior. People getting relaxed or tired people gathering in large groups and the government as well. Failing At least a month or two ago, failing to prevent mass gatherings. And you say there's problems with the vaccine getting through to South Africa, which one have they Ordered or have they ordered several well, they're working on the comebacks scheme that many poorer countries middle income countries are hoping will get them access. But the concerns you says there are multiple Different types of vaccine, and most of those have been pre ordered by wealthier countries on a lot of countries like South Africa of really been reluctant to throw money at vaccines that might not bear fruit, so they've been hedging their bets, and that's costing them in terms of finding that sells at the back of the queue now when it comes to trying to access the most effective Vaccines in the ones that are most

A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain

A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain

"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet. Is christmas eve That would go some way to alleviating the absolutely. I think that's going to have to be heavily on the playlist this afternoon. We'll look forward to chatting later.

"johannesburg" Discussed on KQED Radio

"A downtown Johannesburg train station, a student performs for an art project against the backdrop of the urban decay. Moves amongst the broken glass as the sun pours through the missing roof, which is long since been sold for scrap. This is the current state of the rail network in the country, especially in the Housing province, the economic Heartland of South Africa. Criminals have stolen everything valuable and it will cost the state nearly $300 million to repair the damage. This is doing Fontaine train station in the heart off the Johannesburg city now before the lockdown started in March. This was a fully functioning train station with trains and passengers utilizing this facility. The overhead cables are missing. Very still, structures are also gone. People are not living here, and they also stole in an elevator upstairs, and it's really quite shocking as a South African as a citizen, really to see that our infrastructure, our public infrastructure has been decimated in such a way in a very short period of time. Now, the sad tragedy is all around how ding and all around the country. In fact, many train stations are in a similar if not worth condition. The platform area, which still has a roof intact, has been taken over by the homeless. Some tell me they support trains here before everything was stolen. E used to come here to use this train station when I still had a job before covet, But today as you can see how damaged the station is, we can't use trains.

Don't want to be a part of this I just when you're on the way and so for me again, Ibn asking myself like In many racist is to to response fest, obviously, the racial response is this. Also, what how why people's sees Africa insensitive that you don't want to confront the issues that legacy date and capitalism and the meals Ramsey is. That just the ease responses just run away from the situation. And in this other aspects, the human outside of. That response to escape. Rather, than to I'm going to try my best to understand what's going on see how I can effect change within my spaces thing. To have you. Know I'm just trying to unpack it. I think a lot of I. Think. So one of the issues is that is very easy to intellectualize and it's very easy to say, Oh, I'm liberal nine this to not in whatever, of course, everyone must have what they want to but at the same time. The lived experiences often different. And the other side of it is I think the Sudden ideals don't always it's it's the gap between the ideal and the reality I think that's what it is. It's also this idea of Amnesia. Which? The concept of the Rainbow Nation has somehow enabled. It is also sort of allowed to this collective Amnesia to take place and perhaps that was necessary for time I. I can't say I mean it's very easy to save with hindsight but. What happens with that is the unspoken stuff has to go somewhere. So where does it go? which is which is will the unspoken grief coach who which just the unspoken guilt Goto, unspoken Goto, and the truth is at bubbles under the surface of society ended will come out. That is just what Detroit has to go. Some way energy doesn't disappear it has to find an expression. So I think. It's a lot of that I do think it's to do with and this is. So this is Maya admission in terms of when I came back to nip here from. Is that I was I was often terrified. There was so many destitute people you stop at a traffic light and this seven or eight people around your car and everyone needs something tap tap tap on the window and I'm thinking who needs what what do I do? How do I engage? It's absolutely overwhelming and I think what happens over time and that's why I wrote the book. So quickly as you become numb to it so sometimes, it is a willful exclusion, but sometimes I think it's almost protective mechanism ms not just the white South Africans for everyone. Special. Johannesburg has a kind of inch to it. That becomes overwhelming at some point and I think. If you were to absorb every single blow of every destitute person. It's too much newland of being ineffective..

Love the way that collectively from what you're saying it's much sense ultra because I guess there are come from a science background so they makes more sense to me to clan. Yes. I'm surprised you said that you let the novelist of guys. You don't really go in to the novel or. Was it did you have an idea exactly what how would happen? Just like whatever happens happens I whatever happens happens I tend to start with the fifth sentence and once I've got first sentence in that first sentence is held the entire novel. Tone the texture, the voice. The DNA his science background feet sentence holds the DNA for the rest of the novel me so once. Sentence has dropped into my head and it will drop into my head often. While you shopping or something and voice sounds in my head, which is not mind voice. Into my second. Guess. Does also, the novel contains many different perspectives and it's a monologue almost but what I loved and obviously going into the novel now but you change perspectives and so I was wondering and you not it's different from other books because you actually in the mind. That's what I felt like I. Felt I was I will. The. Compliment and so when I. Saw, I don't explain this late property but.

In terms of midway as well was how you naturally just right and how you get to that perspective so that two answers to that the fist is a technical one and the second is a one of humanity and I'll start with technical when I teach creative writing and I always try to teach this to students. The technical aspect is at the point of view you choose is important and it conforms the whole form of the novel. And I think for Johannesburg because I wanted to take on the structure in the foam. was his democratic as possible I wanted to use as many voices as possible. Obviously. This is a misleading titled is Johannesburg it's not Johannesburg. It's a a white neighborhood in Johannesburg and the people that inhabited. It's never going to be all of us but in order to. Make Democratic as possible was important to have a polyphonic. Structure of multiple voices. That's a technical point of on point of view. The Second Point which is one of humanity. Second Point. The second point. Which is one of humanity? Is. Is One of empathy and one of generosity and love towards each and every one of your characters even if their mind will pot.

We'll have the British medical, Journal excecutive editor, Theo blooms. Hello to both of you great to have you with us. Hi Chris in between us we'll be talking to a range of guests who are going to be joining us over the next hour. LE- I think. It's actually this year thirteen years almost to the day since we first met in Johannesburg thirteen unlucky for some. But definitely, not for you I gather that you've discovered not one not two not three but now four new species of ancient human ancestor. It's only three new species. So we'll work on that though with these new discoveries I'm. In the middle of discovery right now and Cova kind of pushed us into a strange space and figure out something to do when we get back once lockdown levels and covid actually lowered here in South Africa and I'd already dispersed my my laboratories in there was site that we had discovered early on in the exploration activities back in two, thousand, thirteen and It was a difficult site. It was going to be a site that was hard to work. It was going to be a site that had every reason it was dangerous that I didn't do it and. I decided to take a chance on day one we hit an extraordinary discovery that that we're in the middle of right now, and so this is really the third big discovery that we've had. It's full of hominids and we're very fortunate to be able to work under these conditions. So this is a cave signed is this where Homo Naledi the smaller ancestors were burying their dead. Inside this I two hundred meters away from where we discovered Homo Naledi. It's different cage system. It was right in front of us. It's an entirely different kind of creature from Homo, Naledi. It's big tooth and it's extraordinary and how old is this? I have no idea this this whole discoveries three and a half weeks old when he heard about it here on the naked scientists first theo over to you for second what does it been like running a Medical Journal juryman covert? We've heard from what it's like trying to fill work as you make extraordinary discover new Ford what's it been like at the J.? Busy is is the one word that comes to mind I mean we. Probably most medical journals have seen attend to one hundred fold increase in submissions of papers with people very anxious to get out the latest findings about covert and we've had to sort of scale up to handle those, and of course, we've been trying to get results out very quickly if they're important the public needs to know as soon as possible. So we we're working round the clock and a lot of my colleagues working. At home with small children and nevertheless trying to do more than they ever did before. Too busy time. Is a mixed bag in terms of the quality of what you've received received some stuff that you think my goodness. That's amazing and if you also receive some stuff that makes you my goodness, I can't believe someone actually sent that to journal did their toddler ride this Yes we we we pretty much always get a range of quality I think what's happening now though is that Everyone thinks every single funding about covert is really really important and they want to get it out as fast as possible maybe when it's not quite ready. Of course, the the most recent high profile person who has succumbed to the new current Avars is Donald Trump and his doctors interesting. They've put him on a whole raft of different treatments including an antibody therapy might by the American company general also a number of other drugs and supplements. It has been unclear though how ill he actually has been summer saying he's actually been downplaying his symptoms. It's been a very interesting journey. I learned a lot about cove. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn't the let's read the book school and I, get it and I understand it and it's A very interesting thing going to be letting US know about it.

"It's time once again to answer your burning market questions. Total request was such a hit guy of lots of fun, right? We've got so many questions. We thought we'd take some more. And our first question comes from John and Long Island. Guys. This is John from long. Island by question on salesforce, our border in the march lows, and it seems to hit a resistance point at two hundred dollars a share. Do you think I should sell right now as it may not only exhilarated from here. Hold or potentially by more on your thoughts. Thank you. All right John From Long Island, Jeff males! What do you say to him about crm? Well look if you bought at the lowes. You're probably working on a thirty five forty percent gain something like that so I think at that point in time. It's always smart to take a little bit off the table so I would start there. John but I'd also say. The stock is holding a multiyear uptrend. It looks like it wants to break out to a new absolute high. It looks like it wants to break out to a new relative high versus the SNP so I actually think that you can play the momentum and salesforce, but definitely take a little bit off the table if you're games, are that big? I tend to agree I. Mean it's really not just about my view on the stock. It's about what is the prudent way to go ahead and risk manage up thirty five forty percent. You one hundred percent need to be taking some chips off the table. I would agree I would agree as well in terms of the long-term uptrend. I would say it is pressing down a little bit towards if I remember correctly is fifty day moving average, but as long as it holds those long term averages. With, at least a portion of of my investment, absolutely all right, our next question is an international one. It comes to Roberto all the way from South Africa. I'm loving the show all the way from South Africa. Wanted to ask question relating to gold. It has run within one hundred dollars of historical high. So my question is. Is it time to start shorting gold and gold stocks? I mean even full Toronto two thousand. There should be more downside than up rats. I just wanted to say. Thank you for having me on the show. And thank you for your amazing analytics. As! Roberto from South Africa Guy Jami who knew we had fans although in South Africa. That is unbelievable. You know when back in another life one of our largest clients was the Reserve Bank of South. Africa And the road I believe from Pretoria to Johannesburg. Is Route One on one? And that was the codename Anecdotal Story I. Know Nobody Cares shorting gold here to me is a very short term trade. I do not although you had a huge reversal Newmont huge reversal panamerican. Silver today I. Don't think that's the right way to play. It I'm of the belief. That Gold's going to continue to move higher as his silver, and as are the mining stocks. You can be selective if you WANNA try to short them, but Roberto I stay long the commodities specifically gold and silver for the next six to nine months for sure Jaffa was your Taylor South African friend. Yeah I think that's probably too and I'll comment on silver specifically as well you know that's put in a massive base, and it looks to be breaking out to the upside so I agree with Guy Look in this environment. You might be able to play it on the short side for a quick trade, but overall I just think momentum's too strong you. You have had flows that are really aggressive into gold and the gold miner, so for that reason I think you can play it on the short side near term, but the momentum strong so I think looking out any further than maybe a month or so you probably want to stay on alongside of it

One fifty three twenty eight just outside. Mena is a woman who happens to have been born with high testosterone levels that matters because the group that makes the rules about her sport, the international association of Athletic Federation's says that gives her an unfair advantage on the track. Now, the South African athlete is fighting a rule that would force her to take medication to artificially reduce her testosterone levels. The case will be decided any day. Now, Gerald is a sports reporter for the Associated Press in Johannesburg, he explained to me how this saga began to understand Kesse menu story have to go back to two thousand and nine in the world championships cast menu at beat the world's best and beat them easily. It looks as if she wasn't really breaking a sweat the track and field officials was suspicious immediately. And she went doping tests and the real bump shell van was that they went to gender verification tests. They suspected the Kesse Semenya may not be female, those no doubt that Kesse menu is a female. But what the I AA? Was presented was a female athlete who had testosterone levels, the twin a male range and that presented them with a huge problem. Because the argues the testosterone is a very very clear indicator of performance, but it's so complicated. Right because why is mandating change in their testosterone levels different than mandating that someone who is born with some kind of other physical feature that makes them really fast. How is that any different? It's a false augument to say that Kesse menus testosterone levels, even though it's naturally occurring is the same as Michael Phelps long arms. That makes him a great swimmer. We don't have rules in swimming says if you'll arms are so long you can't compete, but we do have rules in sports that separate male and female, the idol af says that the one thing that gives men a huge advantage over women is testosterone. How is this playing out? In South Africa among fans observers. I mean, what are they all make this custom menus, a huge hero in South Africa. There's a lot of resentment angry, South Africa, the western world. The I W F is based in Europe is trying to stop this talented young woman from running. It's a case of your saying that women aunt women enough for your western ideals, visit element of rice in this debate. And in a sporting context, it's many ways a game changer. You know, let's talk about the consequences. I mean, what happens if the rule is up held if the rule is held then you get the double Olympic champion and the best eight hundred meter runner in the world at the moment being forced to take medication for the rest of her career. It's that simple. If she wins the challenge, then she runs free as they say. So a significant part of this debate falls on the women who don't have these high levels of testosterone some of them feel that these athletes with high levels of testosterone are unbeatable. No matter how hard you train Casta says, it's discrimination. This is me I'm running naturally. I've not done anything that you. Said I shouldn't do. And yet you still say that it's not good enough, Gerald Imre. He covers sports South African sports in particular for the Associated Press. We reached him on the line from Johannesburg.

They marched through the streets and eventually converged for a rally the Orlando football stadium. The main aim was to protest the compulsory imposition in schools of teaching in Afrikaans, the language of the dominant Europeans of Dutch descent. We understood not Africans only as a language but Africans as a language of the oppressor, it wasn't just the use of the language itself. It was what the language would mean when it's used as a medium of. Instruction when it's imposed on us when we had no choice bogey in Cabela's remembers gathering at her school. Then what was a cold? Winter's morning who you have about three four hundred children gathered outside an assembly, and you have student leaders saying look, this is how we're going to much wine. We're going to be very peaceful to we're going to be taking responsibility for one another. So make sure that you always holding somebody else's hand. Make sure that you stay on the pavements this not stop traffic. We went out expecting particularly teargassing, and we're ready with water and with things that we thought how with Tig Essen. And indeed there was a great deal of kind of excitement as you would imagine if you have a huge crowd and a level of determination. And I think in level of prior to that we've been able to organize ourselves into this huge mass and that we will express ourselves and get the. Voices head by those responsible. So when that much takes off it has a great deal of energy. And we are Africans. We sing when when when.
