"From a dud as a forecast dud as not just a forecast, but as reporting on the current status of the storm. I've never seen anything like this. In my entire life, and it has been a long life. It has been a very involved life is a very deep life. Very productive life I've never seen. I've just never seen this before. I kept waiting someday morning. Something's gonna happen here. Based on this working and nothing. Not put the shutters up for nothing lived in a all day long in a frigging dark room for the month for nothing. Anyway. Greetings, folks. How you doing? Great to have you with us Another three hours of broadcast. Excellent. Straight ahead. Hey, Here's a headline from the Wall Street Journal. I missed this headline blaring all over the media today. No, I know much of the Wall Street Journal's behind a pay wall. But still, here's the headline. US counts smallest daily rise in Corona virus cases in weeks Well, three turtle. Today. Wait, What? Does that jibe with what you think is going on out there. Updated August 3rd, 11:03 a.m. It's by David Hall. I usedto work with a guy named David Hall out in Los Angeles. It's the same guys that commie pinko, but I don't think it's the same guy. Us count. Smallest daily rise. No, not not. Not that it would matter anything. I'm just Providing information, which is what I do here. How about this folks Ratings crash? For the N B A for major league Baseball after protest filled debuts. Who was it that predicted this was going to happen. I think it was your host. Your host here of 32 years and counting on the network. As the N B A and the major League baseball returned from their Corona virus imposed hiatus. It appears that television viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer. With both baseball and basketball draped and all sorts of black lives matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games. A substantially smaller number of fans tuned into the rest of the way for gave the Opens there. Okay, but after that Some of it could have been the fact that there's no fans but I will get the N BA The N BA crashed the end, but you won't hear some numbers. This comes from outkicked dot com. Neither neither league did anything to write home about. As for the openers out kick reported the return of the N B A on TNT saw the following numbers, Lakers and Clippers. 3.4 million. The pelicans in a jazz 2.1 million. Major league baseball and those air. That's not folks. That's that. That may sound like a lot of numbers. That's nothing for fans have been starved. I mean, n Ba fans have been starved of games. Since they were shut down in the early spring late winter. That's nothing Compared to what the average of a Lakers Clippers game would be. Dido Pelicans Jazz Major League Baseball returned numbers also underwhelming the Yankees and the Washington Nationals for millions. The Dodgers and the Giants, 2.8 million. That That's nothing to write home about. Ryan Glass Spiegel of the of the outkicked dot com website. Added more ratings numbers on Twitter. He said. To be fair, since I compared Major League.

"If Mom is positive, because we're still learning how this disease passes for mother to infant. We actually put the baby if they're no asymptomatic. We put the baby in the incubator and allow mom to continue to room in with a baby. But we do teacher from guidelines about, you know, keeping obey the not breathing directly down on the baby. We do encourage still breastfeed, and that's important to us. But if the mamas positive we actually The baby is placed in are in intensive care unit and in isolation area that we created and we make sure because we also don't want to expose other family members who are visiting or other individual in a nursing staff to a positive baby at this point We all know that prenatal care is so important when you're gonna have a baby. Hi Has covert 19 changed your approach to prenatal care? So that is, if I may say it's been probably our biggest, most significant challenge and change to the current way We provide Prady and appear one of the things that we realized very, very quickly We had to do and support in social distance and and people not being out in a community particle and they're pregnant. We thought that we would be there would be a great opportunity to introduce telling health benefits. And so we happened to have knowledge that vast majority of our patients while they have smart phones don't necessarily have access to high speed Internet and some of the hard way that it's needed for the traditional telly. Telly help Platform, So we devise a mechanism them where we actually did Audio on the tele visit subsequent to that, where we recently published in a Green journal, a cog where it actually did make a difference, and there was some learning to do it so at one point We were doing about 30 to 45% of the prenatal visit have appropriate where through intelligence. It's we've honed that down and based on our internal lessons learned, and we're about 20% of our visits now. So at the point where we thought we could start open in our clinics back up and having more people come in. We relax some of that and probably Within four weeks, we realized that when a community spread got more pervasive That we've actually just started increasing back the number Televisa we did you know, I'm sure if you've had a telemedicine visit during these covert days that you would echo the chorus. Hopefully they are here to stay. This full interview is on our podcast. The human side of health care on all the major podcast players and Marjorie Quint booze, ID from Parkland, Health and hospital system is back. Continuing this important topic that yes, I do have some personal experience with myself Back after this quick break on the human side of healthcare..
Elizabeth Wetmore: Valentine
"Today. I'm very pleased and excited. My favorite thing on bookworm is when I'm talking to a first novelist. And it someone whose work I have not previously known my guest on the show today is a booth wet more Beth wet more. Her book is called Valentine. It's published by Harper and it's novel. Beth. Wet more is fifty three years old and this is her first. Book, she's published many short stories in many of the best literary journals, the Kenyon, Review Colorado Review but this is her first time in hardcover. Tell me Beth what feel nights is finally see the book in hardcover. Well. It's all been a little unreal honestly. I worked on the book for a long time and I was ready to have the editor sort of wrestle out of my hands. Honestly I think if if she hadn't wrestled it out of my hands, I'd probably still be tinkering with it to tell you the truth and even now I occasionally spot a sentence or a paragraph that I think, Oh, I'd like to have a do over on that. But on the whole, it's been wonderful and surprising to me I think I. Expected The book to come out very quietly and and so it's been. Marvelous to see how many people have reacted to it in such a positive way and how meaningful it's been to some people. Yes the book has made its debut as number two when it came out on the New York Times bestseller list and it's set where Beth was born in West Texas in Odessa. Now, if you're me, you think Odessa that's near where my family come from in Russia this is Odessa in. West Texas how does it get its name? Well it depends on who you ask You know the they're part of Texas was settled pretty late in the early eighteen eighty s and depending on on what piece of local you believe it was it was named Odessa in part because of the sort of grasslands that that people said resembled the Odessa in Ukraine. And and and that's really been the most sort of certain story I've heard. No was Texas. is known for its. Economy. I'm sure most of my listeners will know this but what is an oil patch? Well. Odessa is in the Permian Basin which is about eighty, six, thousand square miles inside. So and and of course, West Texas and. is is even more vast right than the Permian basin and it's an oil and natural gas rich region of the country I read recently actually that actually until the until the pandemic, it was on pace to outpace Saudi Arabia for the biggest production in world in the next five years That's slow down and been derailed a little bit by the pandemic of course but it's so an oil patches you know a a part of the world where that is the single economy oil and natural gas. It's not a particularly pretty place in the world at least not by most people's standards I think it's beautiful. There's no other way to make a living out there other than working oil and natural gas and Odessa where I grew up on differs slightly from it sort of sister city, of Midland, which is about twenty three miles away in the sense that Odessa's a very working class town most of the people who live and work in Odessa do the. Blue collar work of the oil patch. So they work is the roughnecks and pipe lawler's and fitters and water haulers and That's still even today a pretty male dominated industry women in that part of the world tend to work in support roles as bartenders and waitresses preschool teachers, teachers, that sort of thing So that's where I grew up.

Wearing a mask could be even more important than we thought
"The case that a mass can protect the person wearing it is laid out by scientists in a new paper coming out soon in the Journal of General, Internal Medicine Catherine Wu wrote about that paper which ties together three different concepts about viruses and how they work. The first is the idea of viral dose. That's kind of the amount of virus that is hitting your face parts and the amount of virus that you're exposed to. The second concept is viral load, basically the amount of virus that has. has set up shop in your body after you get infected, exactly. The third idea which is not new to scientists who studied viruses by the way is that cutting back on the viral dose might mean that even if you get the corona virus, your immune system will react in such a way that you won't get as sick. This idea that you can encounter a tiny little bit virus and your immune system's going to have just a way easier time wrangling those kind of few invaders. and. So it's less likely that your body's going to struggle to control the infection and less likely that you're gonNA get really really sick again, not a new concept for scientists. But what is new is the corona virus itself. Remember how we all called it novel for those first few months, scientists had never seen this corona virus before. So saying masks might protect the wearer doesn't mean that scientists are just changing their mind. As Catherine and I talked about, it means that each day they're learning more and more about the virus, but things like viral dose in viral load a really hard to study. Yeah. Absolutely, and this this research is fascinating. I think the trick here is we have so much data that seems like it could support this idea. But a lot of it is totally observational people are looking at how much virus do you have when your symptoms start When is the easiest time to test someone, but the kind of gold standard experiment that people have done in the past with humans with you know, maybe kind of shady ethics and are now trying to do with a bunch of animal models is. Is. You actually have to give a living creature different doses of virus and see what actually happens to that animal or human, which is really hard to do. Yeah. And like you know we, we know a little bit about the flu because there are actual studies in which they gave people, certain amounts of these doses. But for Corona virus because we don't understand the complications we are you know in, it's because it's such a deadly disease. We really can't do that and and people are really not comfortable doing that. So we do have some studies in animals and one of the pieces that you talked about in your piece was the study out of China, where researchers studied this idea using hamsters. Yeah I thought, this was actually a really cool study These researchers basically put hamsters in adjacent cages, Some of them had the corona virus, so they were infected. In, one cage and then they were separated from their neighbors and some of the cages had these little partitions between the mink made out of surgical masks. So the researchers did not put masks on the hamsters. hamsters don't usually take kindly to that sort of thing, but it seems like they did kind of the next best thing and it turned out that the hamsters that were separated from their. Their neighbours by these surgical mask partitions were a lot less likely to get infected with the coronavirus in the first place and the hamsters that still ended up getting infected with the virus. They have less signs of illness than their neighbors that weren't separated by these masks, and there's like a little bit of nuance here Catherine. Right, which is that if the masks had just prevented some animals from getting. Getting, sick at all. You would say like this makes sense to us. Maybe there weren't enough particles to get the little hamster sick. But in fact, they did get sick. They just got less sick, which is kind of a piece of evidence for this idea of the dose makes the poison right I think that makes a lot of sense I. Mean. It's it is a little bit tough because I? I don't think it's as clear cut as to say like Oh, if I get ten viral particles on my face, I'm not GONNA get sick. But if I get fifteen I'm going to get a little bit sick and then if I get twenty I'm going to get super sick no one knows those numbers yet and those are absurdly numbers so feel free to ask yeah. Those are measles numbers Catholic. Keep going. Yeah. But like those are not clear cut and honestly what numbers hold true for me are probably not GonNa hold true for you. It's super complicated I think what researchers are trying to get at here are super broad trends at a population level. Yeah. Yeah. Because whether or not one. person has more severe symptoms to the other could be based on a lot of different things because the immune system is endlessly complicated as we talked about the last time you were on the show. Absolutely, and so there's also these observational studies, right. So these are not scientific experiments that are being done, but these are people trying to kind of look at these huge data sets we have and see, okay, here are a couple of different variables what could they be and so there are some that are around this idea of infectious does I mean you described? Described the situation in seafood plant in Oregon. What happened there? Catherine? Yeah. So during these really really big scale out breath that were happening at like meat processing plants and other food processing plants. A lot of employers wised up pretty quickly to this idea that these like very crowded insular environments are pretty high risk for spread and so they started giving out. Masks to all their employees so that they could work with some degree of protection there did end up being an outbreak at the seafood plant in Oregon, but more than ninety percent of the people who tested positive for the virus didn't end up having symptoms, which is pretty extraordinary. Considering that the CDC is still trying to really nail down this number, but they've put out some recent tentative. That maybe about forty percent of the infections that we know about our domestic as a huge difference between forty percent and ninety plus percent. Yeah. Definitely. Definitely. In the other thing, you know the other piece of data that again is very core live and we're not. We're still working to understand this is that you pointed out that more mask wearing in the US has coincided with. Fewer deaths and at the of the pandemic, although that's a very complicated thing to prove, right? Yeah. That is I i. think that's something people have been talking about a little bit over the past few months. There's a lot of factors that could go into this. You know we're much better at treating this virus, and there's some evidence to show that the average age of the person has gone down and we know older people are more susceptible to really severe covid nineteen. But. So many more people are also wearing masks now, and it's certainly possible that people are getting smaller doses of this virus on average, and maybe that's contributing to fewer symptoms and less severe disease, and thus peer depths, and we should probably say Catherine that the type of covering you're wearing matters, right. The type of mask that you're wearing does matter in how much protection you have. Absolutely. That's a really good point. A lot of researchers have said, you know you want to choose something. That's got a couple of layers to it. You want to have it. Fairly tight over your mouth and your nose is okay. That's a little loose fitting. We don't WanNA, make it really uncomfortable for you, but you want it to sort of seal off your mouth and your nose which means covering. All of those holes in front of your face. And when you actually put it on and take it off, try not to touch the front of it because that's where all the stuff that you're trying to keep out of your nose and mouth has probably accumulated and said, grab those ear straps or whatever is keeping it on your face. Yeah. Absolutely, and you, Catherine I do think there's a bigger threat here. I. Want to ask you because you're a scientist turned journalist just like me and it's you know about how science is done and interpreted in a pandemic. Sciences. So much of not knowing what's going on and learning little pieces at a time and going back and forth on an issue before you arrive at a conclusion is actually very very common. I. Mean it is my I. Mean I don't know Catherine. That's how it was aggressip school for me and so this idea that like because you know people don't know what they're talking about with masks or you know like the CDC's changing up their guidance like it under, you know it's frustrating, but it's also how it works. You know what I mean. Yeah. Absolutely I? Think the most humbling thing I had to go through in the process of becoming scientists was just getting more comfortable with being wrong all the time and then talking about. Run all the time because I think if if I. Didn't feel empowered enough to talk about my mistakes with other scientists who could. Broaden perspectives. I wouldn't have ended up learning anything, but you know to kind of flip it on its head I. Think it's just been incredibly humbling an incredible to watch how the scientific community has come together. Science is often so plotting and tough, and sometimes it paper will be published and then eight years later, data will come out that'll show. The stories a little bit different here. A lot of that timeline has been collapsed into just a couple months for this pandemic and people are coming together from around the world to learn
Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.
Dampening of the Senses Linked to Dementia Risk
"Memory loss and forgetfulness or common warning signs for dementia. But a dulling of the senses also appears to be associated with disease. Smell is definitely the strongest one we found, but it does seem like it's not just smell will Abramowicz an epidemiologist at the University of California San Francisco. Her team studied cognitive decline in eighteen hundred adults from the health aging and body composition study which tracked the health and mental function of older adults over a seventeen year period. During this study subjects completed sensory tests including hearing, smell touch and vision Brenda's team took. The results of those tests and then compared the adults overall sensory abilities to their mental function and the results. Those better functioning had a lower risk of dementia and worth worse multiple sensory function. They had this guy dementia a decline in smell in particular had the strongest link to dementia. The results are in the Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. Alzheimer's and dementia. The scientists were just studying correlations here. But Brennan says, if they can figure out how well multi sensory declined predicts dementia risk, it might give doctors another tool to screen for the
Vitamin D doesn't prevent depression in older adults, large study finds
"A large study finds vitamin D plays no role in preventing depression in older adults. The results published in the medical journal Jamas Show that vitamin D did not play a role in improving mood either. There's still plenty of benefits to taking vitamin D, like helping the body absorb calcium and phosphate, which keeps muscles and teeth healthy and makes bones less likely to break.
U.S. Seeks as Much as $18.1 Billion From Purdue Pharma
"The US Department of Justice is demanding oxycontin maker Purdue Pharma pay as much as eighteen point one billion in penalties as part of its bankruptcy reorganization plan.

The DOJ is seeking two point eight billion, which could be tripled under the law for tax dollars spent battling the US opioid epidemic, as well as kickbacks to doctors and pharmacies, and transferring cash to hide money from creditors on the criminal side. Federal prosecutors want purdue to pay a six point, two, billion fine and the forfeiture of potentially three and a half billion more over marketing and distribution that violated criminal statutes including anti kickback laws misbranding under the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act and conspiracy.
Spark Your Curiosity
"My friend, Steven Kotler. Is a magnificent human being he is a New York Times bestselling author many times over. And, he has dedicated his life to understanding our optimal states of being. We call it flow, but there's it's really a spectrum of states from from being deeply embodied in. A meditative state to being higher than a kite. Are climbing wall or scaling amount, and were surfing wave. And I've I've spent so much time understanding optimal states of being. Because at the end of it, all at the end of the day. We are. We're wired to look for pleasurable. Experiences and it doesn't have to mean decadent or leisure. You know pleasurable experiences can be just simply being. Fully immersed in a project at work where you lose your sense of time and sense of self. And this is what? Our enthusiasm, this is where our enthusiasm takes us. When we are so excited and. Intrigued, and the word of the day is curious about something about an activity or subject or. A creative. Project we lose ourselves. And that brings US alive. That helps us to shift out of this. Just the drudgery of thinking all day planning all day to this delightful dance of aliveness. And you deserve that you deserve to feel alive. It's our birthright to feel curious. Enthusiastic. And it doesn't mean it has to happen twenty, four seven. But if it's not happening that much, then I encourage you to start looking at what you're curious about until I want to offer you today a quick exercise that I learned from Stephen and I believe that Steven learned from Mikhail check set me high, who is kind of our modern modern father of flow state or or or peak experience, and so this is a simple exercise in understanding what you are curious about. It's been hugely helpful for me and a do it probably every six weeks. oftentimes, I'll do it when I started new journal. and. I'll just start that journal with this exercise. So. Here we do here goes you WANNA list out the numbers one through twenty five. Put at the top. Things I'm curious about. And spend a few minutes and write down everything that you are currently. Curious about. And then they could be totally random things. Such as I. I did this exercise with a few a few people on my team. In my in my mental wellness business. We were doing this exercise because when you find out what you're curious about it really brings you alive and one of our our our love lease said, you know curious about UFO's and extraterrestrials. That is awesome. Right. So I could be so vague like that or random. What are you curious about? Right. down. Right down, and then the second step is to spend fifteen minutes a day or more. But let's start with fifteen minutes a day. Down a rabbit hole. Allow yourself to go on wikipedia. You know go down those rabbit holes by clicking on the links. Give Yourself. That freedom. To Google it. To research it to. Dive into some video or to buy a book about it. This is what keeps US sparked. Sparked and curious. And it doesn't have to be work related and it doesn't have to be enlightened. Right? It can be anything under the Sun. What are Hugh curious about? Right now.
Breathe Again: From Miasmatic Disease To Modern Day Misconceptions
"Hopefully, you've already heard that we lost a documentary recently, it is just taking off all over the Internet and the name of the documentary is called mask facts science in history of mask in medicine, and as you know right now we are dealing with A. Nationwide and worldwide pandemic, and we're looking for solutions and we're looking for things that have real efficacy to protect our citizens and to also maintain a level of health into to to create a system where we don't go through this again, that's what it really is at the end of the day because in truth the next viruses coming, you know Kobe twenty over. Twenty, one just like the flu virus you know these viruses mutate as we're GonNa talk about today, and we'll be dealing with more infectious diseases in the future. This is how life works, and so we went to look at what are some real clinically proven real world solutions to keep our citizens healthy and so we lost this documentary again, just skyrocket is over. Half, a million views already this week and has been a few days but something happened. Something happened I'm going to share with you a little bit later in the show but as of now, you check out the full documentary at the Model Hill show dot com for slash mask facts as I mentioned today, we're GonNa go on an adventure. We're going to go through some of the data that was in the documentary, but also ribbon dig a little deeper would expand on some things we're GonNa have a good time. And really, we want look at the beginning of this utilization of mask in medicine where the start and I think it's important to in that humans have been wearing masks for forever I for thousands of years whether it's for ritual whether it's for celebration also wore that's a time that different types of masks have been used but the specific use of masks in medicine actually started around sixteen hundreds when physician Charles de created the earliest versions of a has met suit. At this time he was looking at how can we protect the physician Dat was dealing with we're talking about this time of like the black plague, right the deal with plagues it was called a plague doctor. So a featured a waxed overcoat a lengthy Cain to examine people. Can you imagine somebody examining you am cocaine you with a cane from like six feet away? How disrespectful? So they had a cane also, there was this menacing eat mask that was part of this particular has met with this form of protection. and. The interesting thing is that this mask had very different purpose than you might suspect. Because at the time physicians all over believed in something called the Maya's matic theory of disease. And basically, the miasma theory of disease means the disease is passed from person to person or from the environment to person through the inhalation of quote. Bad Air. is coming from the environment, not necessarily prisoner person, but coming from the environment in inhaling bad air was the primary cause of disease. All right. Now, the mask was not necessarily used to prevent the physician from inhaling bad air what the beak mask was actually four was to crowd out the batter and instead hill good air and what they were doing was stuffing the mask of beat to keep it away from the person and they could even lights it light it on fire lake again Billy Madison. There's a scene where they're like the taking back the poop in lights on fire people sports. So they can actually stuff the beak with herbs and spices right shot at the KFC, and then they can inhale this good air to help crowd out the batter that was the technology that was there that was their approach and they felt that was affected. So this actually continued for quite a while with this mayes matic theory disease, you might think that this is a long time ago because it sounds strange. But the Maya's matic theory of disease did not become obsolete until the twentieth century that's actually finally became obsolete in the germ theory of disease really started to take hold. And this was around the nineteen hundreds. Physicians were now beginning to wear preliminary versions of surgical mask with a primary function of protecting the patient from contamination in surgical site infection. So kind of looking at today, it was used to protect the patient from the physician. In them not you know spraying out on them during the procedure in increasing their risk of infection. Now, visually, this became common practice for healthcare workers to wear mask and the surgical setting. Now is more hygienic practices began to be incorporated into operating rooms in hospitals. Several scientists sought out to discover whether or not the ritual of wearing a mask in surgery at a high level of effectiveness in preventing infection, which is their intent surprisingly several studies including a Meta analysis, and this means multiple studies a conglomeration of multiple studies examining this issue. This was published in Cochrane systematic review, very prestigious found that when physicians wore a mask or didn't wear a mask quote, there was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked in unmask group in any of the trials. Could. Now, what this means is that even over one hundred years after the inception of the mask in surgery, the researchers noted that at best quote it is unclear whether wearing surgical face masks result in any harm or benefit to the patient undergoing clean surgery. In quote I want to look a little bit further because this just didn't make sense how this not be proven to be helpful at least in. So another study, this was published in the Journal of Hospital infections appropriate title. And they also concluded that the use of surgical masks surgery are obsolete and unnecessary. Researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy summarises by stating quote clinical trials in the surgery theater have found no difference in wound infection rates with and without surgical mask. Despite these findings, it has been difficult for surgeons to give up a long standing practice.
SEC Investigates Kodak's Federal Loan, Stock Surge
"Last week, Kodak announced, it had secured a seven hundred, sixty five, million dollar loan from the Federal Government under the Defense Production Act to shift gears for making photo supplies to drug ingredients. Now, we've learned that the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the deal joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Dave, Michaels? So Dave Codex shares surged after news about this loan broke, and that got the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. What can you tell us about what they're now looking into? Well, we understand that the SEC has opened up. An investigation they're looking at trading in the shares just before the loan announcement was officially made, and then also how the in the news about the loan was communicated to the wider market. Why is that potentially a problem that Kodak had shared news of this deal with some media outlets before making this public wouldn't be a violation of criminal law, but but it could be a violation of the regulations that apply to public companies, which they can be straightforward. They can also beat her technical, but suffice it to say that public companies have to have a lot of rigor around how they communicate. Information, that is information that is going to influence investors decisions about whether to buy a seller, hold on a shares and if the company released information. About the control loan before the initial announcement in released in a way that was. Haphazard or not well thought through and then that information. Leaked down in some form or fashion to the wide broader market people traded on it than that could be a problem for Kodak as a public company just in terms of their responsibilities in terms of how they're supposed to control the flow of material information. So what are some of the questions still surrounding this deal that our team is looking into right now including this question about the disclosure in the communication? Of the loan, we're still looking into the loan itself in Kodak is saying that. Alone details are not fully finalized and yet the announcement was made last week that it was going to be getting seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan. So announcing net to the broader market, ensure holders developed certain expectations about how that's going to change. Kodak's business. But the loan is in guaranteed is not finalized. Query whether whether it was appropriate to make make that announcement at the time. We're also looking into continue to look into some of the equity options grants that were made to executives directors in the day before the day, just before the official announcement was made. So Dave, what are the potential outcomes from an SEC investigation of this sort? What can we see come out of this and when? You know we understand this is Very early days of this, I mean after all the announcement was just made last week, so it could take. Months to learn anything from either the company or potentially in the SEC. If actually brought any sort of official claims against the company. So we won't. We won't know anytime soon, and also it's also not clear that this would result in in a in former allegations of wrongdoing SEC opens up investigations all the time they ask questions, they do the dig into something, they take testimony and they might decide you know, hey, this, this was a little weird wasn't perfect way went down, but there's not a clear regulatory violation. Yourself is just something that I think people who are interested in Kodak Interested in in this story would just have to stay tuned.
Armor on Butterfly Wings Protects Against Heavy Rain, Study Finds
"Apparently Butterfly Wings are built like armor to protect them against heavy rain a June study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences analyzed how water repellent properties on the butterfly's wings protect them against Raines impacts quoting dot org. The research showed how micro-scale bumps combined with a scale layer of wax shatter and spread these drops to protect fragile surfaces from physical damage and hyperthermic risk. Previous studies have looked at water hitting insects and plants at low impacts of noted, the liquids cleaning properties, but in nature, raindrops can fall at rates of up to ten meters per second. So this research examined how raindrops falling at high speeds interact with super hydrophobic natural surfaces and quotes. Senior Authors, Soon Juan young associate professor of Biological Environmental Engineering College of Agriculture and Life Sciences pointed out that raindrops are one of the biggest risks for butterflies getting hit by a raindrop for butterfly is like getting hit by a bowling ball for a human. For the study, the researchers placed the insects as well as samples of leaves and feathers on a table and released droplets of water from two meters above they recorded the experiment at several thousand frames per second so that they could watch back in ultra slow at which time they discovered that when the water hit the surface, it rippled and spread on the Nanos scale wax layer while the micro-scale bumps created holes in the droplet quoting again, consider the micro bumps as needles young said, if one dropped a balloon onto these needles, he said, then this balloon would break into smaller pieces. So the same thing happens as the raindrop hits and spreads end quotes. Not. Only does this reduce the impact force, but it also lowers the heat transfer from the cold drop, which enables the insects muscles to retain enough warmth to fly. Instead, he's like this aren't just interesting to learn more about butterflies and feel at ease knowing that they're relatively okay during big storms like today's but also these types of studies can inform consumer products. So called bio mimicry products in this field have already led to water resistant sprays for clothes and shoes, as well as the de Icing coatings for airplanes. There is so much weird and cool stuff from animals and. Nature. So thinking about how we can adapt some of it for humans is extra fascinating to me is all the other day that someone had redesigned the umbrella to open and close upside down so that you theoretically don't get as much water all over you. But what if we can coat on with some of this manno scale wax and micro bumps so that they repel water I mean that would be pretty cool.

Young Europeans' Resistance to Rules Fuel Fears of Virus Resurgence
"For months Europe was under a lockdown during the pandemic borders were closed people stayed home and the number of corona virus cases plummeted. Now restrictions are lifting and in some places, cases are rising especially among young adults. The Wall Street Journal's boy on Pinch. Husky is covering the story from Berlin. Hey, there boy on hi there. Hello and boy on. We're seeing arising cases in Europe. Especially among young people, why is this happening? Yeah. We'll see markets been six almost six months of this pandemic and people and especially young people seem to be growing tired of the measures right? I mean they. Of course, they know what measures are. I think at some point old them have respected the measures as much as they could. But now you see sort of a widespread. Fatigue with with the restrictions and people you know are just kind of eager to get on with things. What happens here in Berlin is impacting park where Around the corner from where I live you pretty much have almost every night a legal of mass party of ranging from dozens to hundreds of young people. In, their teens or in their early twenties who kind of congregate with kind of music you know they have this Internet speakers and they play their own music and they bring their own booze and and some of them bring their own drugs. And they have these parties because the clubs are closed and Berlin is famous for its club scene is one of the sort of landmarks of the city. Really. It's one of the tourist attractions of the German capital the. Nightlife and it's all shutdown. It's been shut down since March? and. I guess young people have found a way to kind of circumvent that. And, that's also true of other cities in Germany. You know you have more or less clandestine parties some of them are not that. They take place Frankford the couple of weeks ago there was A. Big Impromptu Party. On in a central square and to the point where the police had to intervene, and there was some sort of altercation people throwing bottles at the police and so on. So we have parties taking place. We also have travel opening up across the E U people can move once again. Is. That also play a role. Well, yes authorities have said medical authorities in several countries including Germany hap- said that serve her the reopening of the border some the continent than the serve. The restarting starring of the season has played a role in the rise of the number of cases and spread of the infection. Essentially, quite quite a few of the small outbreaks in Germany. Now are said by the authorities to be due to people coming back from tourist hotspots such as Spain and bringing the virus with them and then infecting their communities. So definitely, there has been a factor I mean, if you look at Greece and Croatia to and Spain. Three countries that have major tourism industries all of them had the very low level of infection until July, when when tourism, kind of re started and all them are reporting. An uptaken figures to various degrees. G-GREE-GREECE has a smaller uptake but but Spain has a huge uptake. Angry show was down two zero before the tourist season started, and now now they also are struggling with with a resurgence of of the infection.
AstraZeneca Rivals Moderna in Race to Successful SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine with ChAdOx1 nCov-19!
"So I'm glad to be back and I have a pretty exciting show for everyone today the main. Main Serb we're going to talk about is the latest publication by AstraZeneca in the Journal. The. Lancet of their source to vaccine, and we're going to take a look at the data, look safety and contrast that to what I talked about with regards to earn his maxine last week. So definitely check out that show first and then watch this if you're interested by. That's going to be the main story, and then we're also gonNA touch on a few other biotech companies that invested in that updated their earnings, the last little wild for Q. Two. So that's going to do for the show. And really that's not much going on in the biotech space unfortunately lately, we seem quite a sell off in the X., p. I and I think that's largely due to the executive orders announced by the trump administration when I looked at them though it didn't seem to affect the company's I'm invested in which are mostly small and mid cap. Biotech. These executive orders had more of an impact on drugs that actually price right now in the market and the one in particular, that's concerning for large-cap Pharma is the one that forces companies to maintain pricing through the US and ex us. A lot of companies are able to charge a premium in the US compared to ex us, and now there's going to have to be normalized in what that means is that often these left lower their price for Americans which they didn't need to do before this so. That's kind of what's going on in biotech space excitement in the market otherwise has to do more with the tech companies that just destroyed their earnings on Friday. So we saw a huge increases in facebook, apple Amazon Google. So the sciences to be flowing more towards those companies than the XP. Even though the FBI did recently hit all-time highs. Personally I managed to get on a road trip in the last week or so and I checked out SEDONA Arizona for those who've not been there. It's definitely worth checking out if you live in the US, it's it's pretty gorgeous place except for the heat, the heat is pretty insane and somebody lives in San Diego, it's shocking to see the numbers go up to one hundred and fourteen degrees, Fahrenheit, but it was nice to get away for a bit and one other piece of business I. GotTa Get through is to give a shoutout to a friend of mine named Dave Coggin. And the reason for this that we had a friendly bet over a ping pong tournament yesterday that I would give him a shout-out if I lost all the games against him and he ended up beating me in every one of them. So with that, let's actually get into the meat of the show. And again, thanks everybody. All support all the emails in tweets in the comments on my channel are very, very much appreciated. It does go far with in terms of spreading the word and getting the podcast out there. So thank you for that. Now, the first company I WANNA talk about is trillium therapeutics, and they're sitting around fifty, five, hundred and fifty, million dollar market CAP, and we're talking about them today because they had a press release announcing a delay in data and people were expecting a clinical update on their six to one and sixty two product in the middle of twenty twenty, and that's around this time now, and instead what we're hearing is that they're going to. To this update at the American Society for Hematology Meeting in December of twenty twenty. So it's about a six month delay, not the end of the world, but there was really no relevant update provided in this press release. They mentioned that can relax refractory C. T. cell patients have been enrolled in the first four cohorts, and they were treated with the sixty. One monotherapy at does doses up to one point, four milligrams per kilogram. They also mentioned that they completed dose limiting top evaluation of cohort four, which is that one point, four milligrams per kilogram does and they're now moving onto the two point zero milligram per kilogram dose. So not really much to report the stock sold off from the sevens to around the fives and then was bought back into the sixes. So I think my average position is around the fives end. I decided not take an additional position into it because I am pretty heavy in the stock. And yet, it's unfortunate delay, but I don't think the fundamentals of the company at all are in jeopardy and some other things to know if you WANNA take a position in sort of CD, forty, seven molecule, which is what Chile him is commercializing They did announce a solid tumor study, which is going to be starting pretty soon, and we're GONNA see data in that in twenty twenty one. So if they see good data in solid tumors I think the stock could Garner maybe a five x valuation from where it is. Now, let's kind where I see trillium eventually, and I plan on holding well into twenty. Twenty one.
Breaking Through at CVRx
"Welcome to the MED tech talk podcast your host Pardo and I'm very excited to welcome the deem yard CEO CRX to this edition of the podcast Nadeem has had the lustrous career starting at GE and then his GM of MEDTRONIC's navigation business but his biggest and most important challenges come CPR which we're going to focus on today for full disclosure. I've had the pleasure to get to know Nadeem over the past eight plus years, and for the last four I've been on the beam sport and killed as an investor in Cebu. Rx. and. I'm really looking forward to the conversation today. Deem it is great to have you on cats. Thank you jeff it's great to be with you today. Terrific will good what we have a lot of things to cover today and really want to focus on CBS which is turning into I think an incredibly exciting story. But of course, their their roots to the CRX story and maybe you can take us through that a little bit the genesis of. Both. The CRT is therapy in heart failure but also barracks. Absolutely Jeff. So I talk about heart failure it is. A devastating disease. Very expensive from a cost perspective, but also from the human side of things, patients unfortunately suffering from heart failure, end up having those episodes of congestive offense way as they feel that drowning, it's like a continuous waterboarding expedient just how painful that is right and unfortunately one of those episodes could lead to their death and. In the United States hot figure is the second most expensive disease. If we consider cancer as one disease, if you stopped separating cancer between breast cancer by cancer sets that hot figure becomes unfortunately the most expensive disease in the US. What is hot forget? It's. When the heart over the years of. Insult or injury to starts becoming larger the walls of the heart becoming thinner. And the heart's ability to pump blood to the system is compromised. And that's. Compromise happening in multiple forms. One of them is called synchrony when the left side and the right side of the heart start becoming disconnected from each other. So think about it like a car. Engine where have the cylinders not kill into properly? Than the COD would not produce horsepower that you need. You need to tune the car that is what's Artie Cardiac. Surgery synchronization therapy. Was designed to do they. You know put two pacemakers right now it's only one pacemaker with two wires. That's why they call it by basic they based both ventricles and they tried to synchronize the left and right side. That works wild if the heart is distinct honest. However in heart failure. Only thirty to forty percent of the patients have synchrony. That s of the patient's heart become lodged the world's thinner. But the left and right sides are still beating in harmony but not strong enough. And for those patients, unfortunately crt devices did not produce the results that WHO, hoping for. Ten fifteen years ago when we're testing them. And that is where our approach berry. Flex. Therapy comes into play. The genesis of this therapy goes back multiple decades not gonna go to the whole history with Dr Professor Bronwyn than his wife and everything, but nevertheless indie. Let me take one paper from Dr. Abraham. From nineteen ninety nine and that is about CRT devices. In this paper that was published in the New England. Journal of Medicine Dr Abraham demonstrated the sustained. That's or the sustained benefit of CRT. Comes from the fact that when you should denies the left side on the right side of the heart, the pulse pressure of the volume of the blood leaving the heart. Activates the Beverly Flex. In the cutouts dodgy. Trusting. Right. So those patients with this synchrony, you recent combined the left and the right. Now you're sending a pulse pressure strong enough you activate the battery flex let a convoluted way to do it. How did you see that actually signed to do it well? Alex secrets wandered in the body we went with a Wyatt directly into those better receptors in the. Wall and activate though cells. Jackie with. Why go all around right now, our device would work in all forms of heart failure, but we have to go in developed the evidence one by one and demonstrates and in our first. Quote Unquote. beachhead strategy. We selected a large segment of patients who are not able to be treated by CIT devices. Why not the eligible for Siasi devices? Those patients are those who do not have distinctly. Right. So they left the right side of the heart beating in synchrony, but heart is not strong enough. The walls fin the muscles of the heart are tired at the. Pump, the blood.

Almost a billion dollars in revenue <music> fedex is business is shipping boxes and almost no single company generates more boxes to ship than amazon today on on the show. Why would fedex cut ties with a company that would seem to be. It's perfect customer. Welcome to the journal <unk> our show about money business power. I'm ryan kanoute. Send an i'm kate linebaugh. It's monday august twelfth. The relationship between fedex in amazon started to deteriorate after one dramatic christmas. Let's let's go back to december twenty thirteen. It's christmas and it's a year were ecommerce is growing taking share for malls. It's on fire palsy. Albro covers the shipping industry for the wall street journal. We're getting down to the last few days before christmas. Everybody's sitting at home and they are buying presents presents for their kids. Their relatives and they're expecting it to arrive before christmas but what's happening behind. The scenes is u._p._s. Fedex are getting crushed. There are just millions of packages that are being dropped into their network. Not only from from amazon dick's sporting goods macy's kohl's l.l bean. I mean just any retallack you can think of the network was being completely overwhelmed and millions of people a little bit get their packages before christmas. Christmas was ruined for a lot of people christmas. Cheer turned into christmas jeers today after a lot of disappointed online shoppers were without out there gifts on christmas morning. I waited around for hours and hours for it to show up and it never did. It's terribly disappointing because we ordered these things on december first. I was really excited. I couldn't wait to see your face and it didn't happen so i was disappointed and the carriers had to issue refunds john's and sort of amazon amazon akitas well but amazon did something about it. They really got serious about wondering thing. You know what do we have to do to make sure it doesn't happen down the road and they decided that they were going to look into building their own shipping network that strikes me as an extraordinarily ambitious. Che's response to something that all of retail had to deal with but here's amazon deciding. We're gonna actually build our own logistics company right but amazon is known for big ambitious. Che's ideas and really disrupting industries and they certainly have the capital to pursue this sort of bold idea. I don't think it would be hyperbole to say that they're one of the most i feared companies. Incorp america dina mattioli covers amazon for the wall street. Journal amazon's not content to partner with other companies when they think that they could do these things better themselves. They're studying different companies and industries that they can get involved in and if there's an ability to bring efficiencies or to execute under better level they probably will amazon's done a good job at looking inwardly and saying well if we need this type of service. Maybe our customers need it to amazon has used this playbook many times. When it sees an opportunity in another industry it's studies that industry carefully and then pounces so a prime example example of that is cloud computing amazon started growing beyond book selling and they started adding lots of other categories and they needed data and computer pewter bandwidth to help serve those customers so they created cloud computing and then at some point. They said you know what if we need this to run back operations. Any number of companies in the world world probably need it to and that's now the cash cow of the business. I think a lot of people still describe. Amazon is one of the world's biggest retailers but there's so much more the not these days. They are a massive hollywood studio. They're one of the biggest advertising companies in the world. They make their own electronics. They make kindle and alexa which are wildly popular. They're getting into healthcare. They're getting into health insurance and with whole foods and their amazon goes stores. They're also getting into grocery so there's really you know industry that they don't have their tentacles in some fashion in how do companies react when they start to pick up. The scent amazon might be looking into their neighborhood with panic. I think i know this from my prior job covering mergers and acquisitions that you'd be hard pressed to find a single boardroom in america where amazon's not regularly brought up up and people are trying to make themselves amazon proof but when amazon decided to get its tentacles into the shipping business. Fedex's ceo didn't react with panic antic at all here. He is in a fox business interview. Amazon is now a big customer for you time. They're trying to get their own trucks. Their customers twelve competitor the fact that amazon had lots of trucks and things like that is smart from them. Not a threat to us sex would always face the question of what are you gonna do about amazon as a competitor amazon's growing. It's living in our county feel about that. Is that a risk for guys and fedex stance in the words of their c._e._o. And founder fred smith was that amazon being a competitor was quote fantastical. He didn't believe that amazon would build out a network network to rival its own and there was a reason fedex was doubtful. When it comes to logistics. You can't just bill the network to deliver packages any given week. You have to weigh over build your capacity. There's a phrase this isn't logistics industry that you build a church for easter and what that means is that every sunday your church. It may not be packed but on easter. It'll be packed and it'll be overflowed. Amazon needed to build its church. They needed to have its church. That can handle there overflow. Their big peaks in volume around christmas around prime day. Despite this enormous barrier to entry amazon got to work doc building. It's church anyway in just a few years. It's built up a massive logistics apparatus including hundreds of warehouses tens of thousands of trucks and dozens of airplanes over the last few years you start seeing amazon trucks on the road more often so in two thousand fifteen amazon started prime now which is basically one hour delivery and some metro markets later on that year. They started leasing airplanes. They also started looking for people who on small businesses though basically be amazon's delivery partners. I you could start your own business. Hire workers renison vans and you basically have replicated the model that fedex uses in his ground business two years ago twenty. Two percent of packages were delivered by themselves today. Forty five percent of packages are delivered by amazon so almost half of amazon's packages these are delivered by amazon itself and if doubled that in just two years yeah amazon now has around fifty cargo planes now that's still pales in comparison to fedex is around seven hundred planes but for only a few years of work for amazon. It's not bad what u._p._s. has built out over a century korea and fedex has honed over forty years amazon have done no matter of years and all of this would have been fine for fedex. Maybe if amazon was building the network to ship only its own packages but last year amazon declared that shipping other people's packages would be a new line of business third party's people and businesses who sell on amazon can now ship through amazon too and that cuts directly into fedex is business say you're a a sneaker retailer and you're selling shoes on amazon the way an ebay seller might sell on ebay you would sell the shoes an amazon truck would come pick it up from you and they would put in their network the way they would amazon packages and get it to the end user so fedex was just kind of you know what the heck were worshipping your packages. It is but you're also building this business to compete with fedex any business who wakes up one day and sees a customer turning into competitor as the the right to reevaluate their relationship so last week fedex re evaluated and decided to cut ties with amazon and they could afford award to do that. The nine hundred million dollars amazon pays fedex to deliver packages. It's actually only about one percent of fedex is total revenue and there were risks to staying with amazon if fedex were to stay with amazon so amazon becomes not one percent of its revenue but five percent or ten percent then it's really hard to split ways and that's the situation one fedex is biggest competitors finds itself in right now u._p._s. in a really different different position with amazon amount of revenue that u._p._s. Guests from amazon is much closer to ten percent than than fedex so certainly couldn't cut ties with the retailer like fedex. Did the amazon grew so big that they could bring a lot of those packages into its own network ups be left with a huge revenue whole you can't really lose that to give give a customer and not feel immediate pain. That was one reason that fedex proactively cut ties with amazon even though it was still getting business shipping amazon packages fedex figured if amazon really has these ambitious to grow their delivery business. They're gonna leave us no matter what so. Why should we be helping them in these last few years of then giving us. This revenue is basically saying. You're not gonna fire me. I quit we'll figure out under our own terms rather than having our hands before when amazon says we don't need you anymore. It is a risk.
