AstraZeneca Phase 3 Trials Paused Due To Safety Concerns

"As to Astra, Zeneca trials for the covid nineteen vaccine hit a snag. The debate resumes as to whether the guard rails and safety protocols worked as intended or it's proof that we're moving too fast in a quest to return to normalcy prior to the pandemic Liz Aibo senior correspondent at Kaiser Health News will update us on the status of the trials and what any setback may mean joining us now, with Liz Zibo senior correspondent. At Kaiser Health News. Thank you for coming on today. Liz thanks for having me. The National Institutes of Health has launched an investigation into the case of a patient who suffered spinal cord damage after AstraZeneca's Kovic Nineteen vaccine trial depending on what I read. It's either proof that the testing process is working as designed or that is evidence of moving too fast and the general public at risk start this out for me if you can. I'd say this is the first example I'd say this is the process working there actually several variety of safety valves that are built into the clinical trial process. So this is one in which a potential side effect was picked up, and we don't know yet if this side effect which is supposed to be a spinal problem if that really was related to the vaccine or not that's why the NIH and others are investigating. More is a comparison going back to h one n one and the vaccine which was developed and implemented very early in the Obama Administration politics aside is there any legitimate comparison as to the vaccine trials of? In one back in two thousand and nine and Kobe nineteen today. The process of getting a vaccine will be longer for Kovin because with H one, N one scientists already had a flu shot and other needed to do was to substitute the h one n one flu sequence for other flu sequences that we've used in the past sue scientists were familiar with the Vaccine Day. Knew how that SORTA vaccine worked the big delay was that the flu vaccine is grown in chicken eggs it's a virus so it's going to chicken eggs and not take some time. So there was a little. Bit of a delay some manufacturing delays with the H One n one vaccine this is very different because this corona viruses very new. We've never licensed vaccine against a corona virus before and the technologies that companies are using to create this vaccine are Ulsan new and most of them have never been used to make a vaccine before big picture. Can you describe the process as far as where we are in the progression as far as phase three trials I keep hearing face three what does that mean for the layperson? Any drug that's going to be used in humans goes through a set period of study and set sequence of trials. So I may be tested enough cell in Petri dish ABC dish they might tested on mice for this kind of vaccine. It's being tested in primates than the first type of trial is a phase one trial, and that's just to try to set the correct dose of the of the vaccine or drug, and to find out any early signs about safety. These are small trials just a few dozen people because these are first in human studies they keep them small to. Make sure that no one's hurt. Then we go to face to trial. Their doctors are looking also for safety and some early signs of efficacy and the big really definitive study is the phase three trial and for a vaccine, these are being given in the United States to thirty thousand people for each trial. So there are two trials that are ongoing right now in the united. States one from Pfizer and one from journal they both are going to enroll at least three thousand people in fact, Pfizer? Just announced a couple days ago they're upping that to forty, four, thousand people and. The reason that those trials need to be so big as they wanNA look for rare side effects, they might be able to find out earlier if the vaccine is effective with fewer people but sometimes, they're rare side effects and this spinal problem that patient apparently had with the Astra Zeneca drug called transverse That's really really rare. So you're not gonNA see really rare but serious side effects until you test them in huge numbers of people. So right now we've got two trials that are in face three, their ongoing the Astra Zeneca trial had just started that was also supposed to. Be a thirty thousand person trial that's been paused because of this potential side effect at the end of it. All best case scenario at least in terms of the Astra Zeneca propose vaccine would it be an annual shot like we get the flu shot or is it something which we may take one time and we're done like maybe the chicken pox virus that's a great question, and in some ways this going to resemble the childhood vaccinations. If anyone out there has kids, we know that they don't just get one shot they'll get a series like measles shots you'll get to what the Yeah, that's right. You'll. You'll get one when the child's around maybe a year or eighteen months, and then they get another one before they enter school. So with this one, people don't yet know how many shots were going to need. Now, the first two vaccines that are closest to making it to approval right now in the US, the Pfizer shot, and also the journey shot those right now to dose vaccines. So you get your first dose which primes your immune system, it sort of. The immune system and prepares it, and then with the Maderna's shot, you get your second shot four weeks later, and that really sets off the immune system to be ready to prepare for this virus and ready to respond with the Pfizer. It's slightly different. It's two shots three weeks apart. But one thing people should know is that let's say you get your first shot for weeks. Later, you get a second shot it takes your immune system, a good two weeks to develop those antibodies. So from the day, you get your first inoculation. Until you may be protected would be six weeks. We don't know yet if we're going to need annual boosters like with the flu shot or even a booster sooner than that, we just don't know but that's a really important question.

Trevor Noah condemns Trump's COVID-19 Response

"Back to the daily social distancing show and yes, we are still social distancing pretty soon the top of my head is going to be six feet away from my forehead. That's the plan. That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece. We now know that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of coronavirus is just to have everybody where a mosque unfortunately telling everyone to wear a mosque is also one of the easiest ways to spread idiocy after more than one weeks in schools have reopened in Washington County Liberty, action coalition hosted a rally in front of the school district building. This morning up to a thousand people showed up saying the children being forced to wear masks in classrooms is illegal and even unconstitutional. Now have gathered here in front of the Washington County. Administration building calling for. The end of a mouse mandate. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves when George Floyd was saying I can't breathe and then he died and We're wearing a mask and we say I can't breathe but we're for story anyway I'll tell you another reason I'd hate mass most child molesters love them God. Damn. These people were crazy. In fact, you know what they should have. Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.

"kovin" Discussed on OC Talk Radio

"I'm in my mid sixties I thought I was in the long fade to black to use a movie analogy but I feel for the first time in a long time that I feel like. There are new possibilities. I'm at the free cutting edge I'm at the front edge again here it feels exciting to be in. That's incredible and so so I happen to you know fall into wells of life and I buy into the mission by into our increased mission of women and children in schools, and you know the trains where we have we're building. Private latrines for girls with private stalls. So there are no longer mocked for their feminine. Hygiene, times they have washrooms and with Kovin and with with. Just general hygiene we're providing these handwashing stations that have four spigots. That they can with so that we providing so. That they can keep, they can keep clean and can helpfully hopefully prevent the spread of this virus saw everybody listening I'm sure has the same reaction and I had mind boggling you mean girls don't have separate bathrooms. No soap isn't readily available no, no, neither his hand. Snow and so the boys will take over the current the trains. And so the boys you know they will be doors routines they're boys they can just go in and pee and a whole because they're just they're just you know six by twelve inch. Holes in the ground, they are not toilets. But we have handrails in the new ones that girls can use handrails to lean down. It's really a sophisticated latrine. That's that's quite quite exciting. This is a real, but let's you don't have to squat. Well you have to squat, but you can hold onto Sandra something. Yeah. Yeah, it's it's. It's. It's really it's really very different world, and so a third one for me and this is one for everyone.

Nine Pharma CEOs Commit to the “Integrity of the Scientific Process” in COVID-19 Vaccine Trials

"Breaking news out of the former suitable sector. Let's get to make. Good Morning. Good Morning Joe Nine. CEO's of some of the largest drug companies in the world announcing they've signed onto what they're calling a historic pledge to uphold the scientific integrity and put safety first as they are developing covid nineteen vaccines. These are basically the front runners in the vaccine race for covid nineteen, all of the companies involved in operation warp speed in addition to Merck Pfizer and its partner biotech Astra Zeneca Madonna GlaxoSmithKline Sanofi Johnson and Johnson and Nova VACs all signing onto this pledge to do essentially four things. They say always make safety and wellbeing of vaccinated people a top priority continue to adhere to high scientific and Ethical Standards Regarding. The conduct of clinical trials and the rigor of their manufacturing process they pledged to submit for approval or emergency use authorization after demonstrating safety and efficacy through phase three clinical studies designed to design and conducted to meet regulatory guidelines through a regulatory authorities like the FDA, and they say to work to ensure sufficient supply and range of vaccine options including those suitable for global access. They say quote we believe this pledge will help ensure public confidence in the rigorous scientific and regulatory process by which covid nineteen vaccines are evaluated and may ultimately approved and guys. This comes as vaccine development is moving at unprecedented speeds and we are hearing about some hesitancy. From folks to believe in the process and to be comfortable taking these vaccines especially as the FDA's leadership has come under question about political influence regarding convalescent plasma and hydroxy chloroquine in a recent change research and CB poll about thirty percent of people said that they either definitely not or probably not take covid nineteen vaccine, and so guys the company is trying to step in here to tell the public, they will keep safety I. Yeah. It's in response to rumors that we'd get an emergency youth authorization for for one of these vaccines before completing. The process there's always pressure on the FDA. obviously in especially with you know we're talking about life and death situations with with some of these drugs to to cut corners and I think they're just you know they're just putting it out there that especially with so many people when. Vaccines are such A. Controversial even before this people, you know what? The Anti Vaccine and everything else and we do remember back with with polio before we knew everything luckily nothing happened but you need to be sure. His longtime ago we know so much more and we know what's in vaccines. We know the scientific basis for how they worked meg. So I, I would be comfortable with. with one of these, the ad no mediated. Vaccine or you know if there's a small stretch of Messenger Aurigny I'll give it a shot I. I'm not overly concerned with with like contamination by some horrific virus that we don't see or something like that. You know make so. A wary public needs to be. Absolutely certain that that. We've. Crossed all the cross the is and cross. The is in dotted the teeth I just wanted to know we are coming up on that and that final stretch and the vaccine development process sort of inconceivably because this only begin in January really. But when we get to the end of October that's when Pfizer is indicating that they may see results about whether they're vaccine works and the FDA has scheduled advisory committee meeting of outside advisers, October twenty second, and so a lot of people are gonNA be looking at that date and saying, are we going to see data and how transparent will this process be So these are nine major drugmakers saying that their first priority is safety and I think this is hugely important not only for building public confidence in. A covert vaccine, but for protecting the sanctity of vaccines in general broader, we've had discussions with Scott gottlieb about this. The reason you don't want to rush through and push something out there that hasn't been thoroughly vetted with a phase three trial is that if there were problems with it, not only would it convince people not to take a Kovin vaccine, but it could undo a lot of the work that's been done with other vaccination programs around the globe I mean Joe. Brought up polio. Well, Jonas salk actually. Vaccinated his children. As some of the very first people testing this out so you know that was something he felt one hundred percent confident with we don't do things that way anymore. But there has been so much that that we have done with vaccinations diseases that we don't even think about anymore because over the last fifty years or so you know they've they've they've kind of gone away up very common This is just important not only for covert vaccination, but for faith in the vaccination system at large. Yeah it's so fragile. Public Health experts are incredibly concerned that a misstep here when vaccines are so important could shake the the fragile confidence in the vaccine system in general, and as you pointed out, it's this terrible irony of vaccines that they have rendered all these terrible diseases sort of non existent, and so we don't appreciate that vaccines did that for us. So there's a lot on the line here.

CDL Champs didn't disappoint

"Get onto champs though this is I think where the highlight of championship Sunday was the call of Duty League Championship. As said, this is really CDL has been the beacon of hope and light in the sports world since corona hit because say what you want. I understand the League has not been perfect I understand. People have been hit with Diaz attacks in events and that hasn't been handled. Well, I understand the game isn't that great at all. uninstalled it months ago right. So I get that I hear you but that doesn't take away that this is really been. The best source of entertainment if you're just looking at, you want the whole package when it comes to ease sporting event. CDL. Deliver that I think especially when it came to their championship and the playoffs so hats off to them right say what you want. But this really turned out to be I think the highlight of Cova de Sports thus far. Yeah for sure I. Mean like you said, it really was the total package. We had all the teams competing against one. Another regional differences there The viewing experience was still exciting I understand the players have their struggles, but that's you know. Unfortunately something that they really only have to deal with I'm not noticing the lag is I'm watching and things of that sort. Right? It was just pure entertainment for us. So yes, see cdl carry the torch during Kovin ended it ended with a bang to you know maybe we just Robertson just during the final four. That's all we'll be discussing and to start off with land in Dallas this weekend I mean that series really kind of set the tone for what we were gonNA. Get in this final four three showdown. I should say right with Dallas. ATLANTA CHICAGO WAITING And that went the distance right off the bat like. Dallas. Took that first game dropped the next to not GONNA lie inside I was a little nervous at that point with Dallas being down to you know to one in the managed to pull it out there. Dropping as into the lower bracket versus Chicago. But yeah that that really did set the tone and that was one of those where I think. Dallas. Really needed that victory because they had been so abysmal versus Atlanta throughout the year that that was almost felt like the confidence boost they needed to carry them into the final game right? Like I think they may have struggled at that point had they had to go up against Chicago after losing to Atlanta the same day because those games were played pretty much back to back later that afternoon was the second game and I thought had Dallas. Drop, that game. Chicago was playing good enough to potentially be able to beat them especially with the demoralized team coming there we talked about momentum all the time, and this was a big one like this was a big one i. felt for Dallas to to get that when I had more confidence in phase beating Chicago than I did Dallas beating Chicago at that point. Had Dallas loss because I agree with you, I. I think that the phase game the first phase game for Dallas was a huge confidence builder. Especially, you know I'd be curious and we'll get someone from Dallas on the show here. In the near future I'm curious on who was that a confidence builder for right would have been for the younger guys 'cause sometimes young and dumb is true right sometimes you're too much of a rookie to realize that hey, they have our number. Right there's truth to that because there's also on the opposite side where. You know they they might realize the situation right? So I wonder by beating them who was the confidence boost for? Was it for the young guys or was it for the old vets to be like we got this? So but either way they ended up pulling it off. Making it to the finals which hats off to both of us even though only one of us, we're right in our playoff predictions. At the start of the season we did both say I believe we'll have to run the tape, but Dallas was going to win Dallas I. Think was both of our favorites at the start of the entire season. Yeah I. mean or I again would probably go look at the tape if. I. Look. We're going to go with. ME. The way it was impressive though that that first game because that that game five, if you recall that it was Ramada that they played on. Dallas one, that six three. But I think like phase had opened kills on like seven or eight out of the nine maps that they played in. Dallas made some incredible comebacks along with some sloppy phase play. That allowed them to take that game five in. So that's also probably a good thing for Dallas to realize that point. Had we one that but if phase really played that game five, properly, it seemed like they should have won it. They had numbers in majority of the rounds They even had numbers I. Mean I think the Alien? Clare winning that four be two was such a clutch moment. In that search and destroy a cloister, hit a nasty wall bang on one of the rows that was probably one of the best wall banks you'll see in call of duty especially from a distance standpoint like the guy wasn't even it's not like he was on the other side of the wall he was running mid lane in place show was posted up in back in a in an dirty wall bank but you could see Dallas put in their homework look. That's what I took out of that is they were prepared for different scenarios. They were calm. Especially that four, V two but. Hell of a way to start off the weekend for sure for chimps.

How the lack of fans is changing the psychology of sports

"Tell me what we know from a sports psychology research perspective about the impact that crowd noise can have on the game. So crowd noise has multiple influences influences number one, the athletes you know in terms of that sense of feeling like they're performing in front of others you know a sense of real expectation for success and motivation and confidence and positive emotions, and then for the coaches, the coaches are are really driven by that fan noise and and us you know the connotations around around the fans this unknown that the fans might produce in their training strategies and their. Skills and drills that they do, and then for the referees that are often involved in in the play and make big game decisions. The referees tend to be the ones that are most affected by the crowd in terms of what we call a home field advantage, and so it's suggested that the referees are really acting on on the level of the crowd noise and the extent to which the crowd is sort of supportive or or not of the plays. Of what's going on on the on the field or the court for example, there's some published work on the The fans being banned from Italy's top soccer league back in two, thousand, seven and Pettersen Lidbom and pricks have talked about the idea that not having the fans in the stands really did have an influence on on the referee it reduced the bias at the referees had by not having the fans in the stands. Yeah I mean. Katherine how do you think that this could potentially affect the players in the games with no fans booing at fouls or you know miss shots like is it possible that players might choke less? You know what I mean I'm thinking of a foul shot situation here or will be less motivated. What do you think? Yeah, you know it really is a a number of factors. So because athletes have their own individual zones that they perform at their best in. An athlete who who really really needs that crowd noise and that experience of that energy to perform may certainly have less energy less drive to be able to play at their best. The early sort of evidence is showing that in the Games in across all sports that the play is sort of less fancy there's more passes. There's less individuals that are sort of taking on their own strategy to dunk the ball or to shoot really, and then we also see that this protected bubble of an environment we may find is more conducive to some of these athletes who would otherwise. Be You know quite affected by the uncertainty of the crowd noise and and the fan you know being present. Yeah. So so what do you think about these attempts to mimic crowd noise like with Major League Baseball's doing piping you know crowd sounds into stadiums and trying to kind of sink the sounds up with what's happening in the game like do you think that piped in crowd noise can have the same effect as like in real life crowd making noise or is it just different because there are actually people in the stands making those noises you know what I'm saying? You know the the crowd noise itself is not. Statistically speaking is not the factor that influences. The you know the outcome of of anyone game but it what it is, is the the perception that that crowd noise is tied to a supportive fan base or the opponents team where you go out and you really want to win in front of an opposing team's fans, and so now when we have crowd noise is being played it sort of justice background noise it's not it's not a motivational noise but. It might be valuable to have some background noise because the players are also talking about how audit is to basically here each other's shoes on the court. Yeah. You can hear each other breathing and just the noises that are that are normally muffled by by the crowd noise are now right there on on the plane surface, and so some level of crowd noise might be valuable for background noise but overall without the physical presence of the fans it really isn't going to be an effective strategy to help players feel like the game is more quote unquote normal. Right, I mean, and then you know there's the pandemic itself right? Catherine I mean as well as. A lot of these players are black many are social justice advocates themselves like I can't imagine what it's like to perform with that much on you in very public lens. You know what? I mean exactly. The tip of the iceberg is them playing on the field or on the court or? On the ice but the reality is that the bottom of that iceberg is there is there life that they're managing and? Worries tied to Kovin as well as you know, their priorities that are tied to their advocacy around social justice. So those sort of social and mental and emotional factors are are also coming up play in influencing for sure the way that the athletes are are playing and concentrating the attention that they have for the variety of things that are going on in the world. Right right. Okay Catherine. So we have talked a lot about the negative impacts of these new conditions and I'm wondering from on a personal level if there's any part of the new reality of sports that you're actually enjoying like, I personally, really enjoy getting to hear high fidelity trash talk that would normally be covered up by crowd noise. You know what I'm saying. It is it is true. You know and I think the the focus of the sport itself allows you to really highlight the actual sport. So it doesn't feel like like an experience anymore it feels like you're honing in on the sport itself and there are certain positives that come from it in terms of you know I'm smiling just talking thinking about it because. The players feel real. You know the ways in which we're seeing them on the on the they're plane surfaces is certainly something that you tend to sort of see but not always, it's always part of the game but not a main focus, and so you feel quite connected to these players. Now because you know they really are the focus of of the sport. Without everything else that goes into the usual sport experience and I would say that certainly a benefit in addition to just so many fans who are so excited to just have the sport back you know and in whatever way looks just to be able to have something to focus on and and you know something to get behind and advocate for their for their teams and so there is some of that you know fandom that

Dr. Philippe Friedlich On Pediatric Surgery And Neonatal Therapeutic Hypothermia

"Welcome to medicine. We're still practicing I'm Bill Curtis of course I my friend and Co host Dr Steven Tailback He's the quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care these days he continues to fight on the front lines of the COVID battle in California for which we are eternally grateful Steve How you doing I'm well thank you. It's good to be. I'm sure you've heard of children's Hospital of Los Angeles notice. Hla US News and World Report has consistently ranked the H. L. A. in the top five nationally and the number one pediatric hospital in California for thirty years. Running this remarkable nonprofit children's care hospital is nationally known for Neonatal Research and care that is funded entirely by generous philanthropists. Dr Felipe Friedli is chief of neonatologist at Children's Hospital. He is also co director of the fetal and neonatal? Institute. And he is professor of clinical pediatrics and surgery at the renowned kept school of Medicine at USC where he's published over one hundred, fifty abstracts, Peer Review Articles and book. Chapters Dr. Freedland is a rock star in one of the world's most complicated pressure filled and delicate specialties that include newborn respiratory failures newborn pulmonary hypertension even surgery on unborn babies. Can you imagine welcome Dr Felipe Free Lick? It is an honor to have you here tonight and having me. So doctor. Can you just bring our listeners up to speed on C. H. LA and your mission there? Sharon's HUSK local Sandra's mission is to care for sick children's no matter what their background cultural background or insurance they have we are. Laced to gear for family and children's in babies when there's no other place that could care for them. Are we talking about like one of the few medical specialties that truly couldn't wait for Covid to pause that's a great question fortunately or many children's covid has not been has impactful. They are some babies are insurance that are sick but by four unless we compared to adults we. Are Really lucky so far. So we're not going to spend the whole show on Kovin because frankly I think people wanted to know much more about your specialty, but maybe you could tell us a little about what kind of a regimen as C. H. L. A. Developed uniquely for this pandemic and what are some of the special things that you do at your hospital to manage this. A lot of it has to do with making sure that became screen families in staff when they arrive at the hospital in make sure that they're the environment for caring for the Germans you regardless of the reason why they're in the hospital is is optimal until the hospital has and significant resources to ensure that we screen families and visitors and parents when they arrive psychologically, how do you get your clientele to feel safe under these circumstances that has been Estonia As you can imagine a lot of families or speared to even go close to a hospital. So said, only our data's suggesting that we can provide a safest environment to bring Ren's and care for them, but it is a concern. Certainly, we can see that visit to the emergency room are significantly down obviously a lot of the outpatient clinic. I've had to restructure their environment, but I think that honest conversations with family in trying to make sure that. Children can get the care they need. So they don't have complications from their Biz orders diseases are we tried to do our best to get the message across

"A judgment of God and in many times when there's a famine, there is a judgment of God in the Bible. So you have this this this son squanders money and in boom famine hits could a famine be in our near future if you go to the grocery store right now, I'm willing to bet on the canned food all you're going to see large cans of food that weren't There five months ago at the beginning of Kovin all through the first three months of this shutdown in lockdown those large cans weren't there trying to be a doomsday prep or anything like that. But I want you to be aware that there could be something coming that God is going to judge this land and we have to be prepared to steal stand firm even in the face of God judging a wicked nation that could be fires that could be. Earthquakes. That could be covid nineteen. Even we don't really know what God has planned in what he is using as a judgment, but we have to be willing to say as believers whatever happens I'm am going to continue to stand firm on the word of God. I am not going to bow the knee. I'M NOT GONNA give in I'm not gonNA give up I'm going to continue to remain faithful even amidst a faithless world, and here's our hope that Christ said that he was going to build his church and then again if you were to look at Romans chapter. Eleven. You see there is a remnant, their chosen by God to be the church, carry out the things with faithfulness that he has called us to do. So what is us? What does it look like for us? What are we going to be? What are we gonNA do are we going to be part of that Rimet? Are we going to be part of ones that bow down and we we back off because we don't want to lose our life we don't WanNA lose our churches. We don't want to lose our voice, our platform, whatever the case may be..

Simple Health Habits for Smart People with John Patton

"Back to the outcomes rocket saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting John Patent. He's a career communicator and marketer, and after twenty years of private industry work. One of his nonprofit public health clients asked him to lead their communications. Department John became fascinated with the organizations worked to prevent chronic diseases ten years. Later, he is still working for that organization and helping the CDC reach Americans at risk. For chronic disease is new book, brainless health was born out of his desire to shoot straight with the general public about what they could do to reduce their risk for diabetes cancer heart disease, as well as steer clear of wheelchairs and oxygen tanks by applying simple habits to their daily life. He speaks in plain English and draws on real life stories and examples that make the science public health relatable, practical and. Possible and so who wouldn't want that in their lives I know I definitely do and so it's my pleasure to welcome you to the podcast John. I'm so privileged to have you here with US imagine I, do appreciate that last comment that who wouldn't want that they're like I believe that when you have health, you have real well being and when you have a being that's well, you have success in life. I mean it conversely, if you don't have health, it's GonNa, be hard to achieve much in life and relationship or professionally certainly, not physically. So it is something that everybody should want and I think they do, and so my hope is to help them get their in simple ways I love it, and you know John had a guest on the podcast several years ago say our nation's wealth is it's health and. You're going to help us dive into that further and how important it is today especially with Kobe and everything that's happening even more important than ever tell us before we you know obviously dive into brainless health your book in the work that you do that and things that we could to our daily lives. What inspires your work in healthcare you know like you said in the election i. Really came into the field of public health and health care by accident working with a client and as I learn more about them, I just caught the passion for what they were doing. The fact that we can actually do lifestyle interventions in lifestyle change lifestyle behavior can really impact the health of ourselves in our country, and so I've worked with physicians I worked with Public Health folks state. Health, departments, county health department and the general public, and so what really lights my fire get out of bed in the morning are the stories of people who actually take control their health it's not all bootstrapping and and just you know personal responsibility of making a new resolution. It's actually using the resources that are available in public health, a lot of programs and projects out there that they. Can Use as resources, but also each other and their communities but ultimately it is there will to change their life and change really rations fine them. Yeah. It's inspiring work and say you've taken a personal approach to it. You know just simple habits that we can use to improve our health. Tell us a little bit about the book and your work and how it's adding value to the ecosystem. brainless help with something that the title of the book came about because I kept coming back to the fact that there were really brainless things meaning not dumb things things that you don't have to think about to put into practice long before Kovin people have not been washing their hands. Now that's brainless. Our mothers and Fathers Autism Wash your hands we can avoid myriad diseases joss by doing that alone people will say all the time that they they're sick. And they caught something or the other, and that's true and it could have just come from some real simple germs they were carrying around and transmitting. So his things like that the the government doesn't like to use the word exercise they liked say physical activity will typically activity is Canada. It's not an intuitive kind of more choice and it can mean a lot of things vacuuming your house to be physical activity, but it's not gonNA help you pre diabetic state it's. Not GonNA reverse your numbers you need to exercise wall know what that means whether we like it or not need elevator heart rate and exercise and sweat, and so those are the kinds of things that I put it in plain. English tell fun stories about my own life because I made a transformation inspired by many other people in my life and I really I really think it's time that we should straight with people stop giving each other and out and. District. Of the Salad Mike cost more than a couple of cheeseburgers doesn't mean we have an excuse to to order the choose business. You know all the time at least

Questions you need to be asking employers regarding the Pandemic

"Good morning friends. It is Wednesday in it is time for another episode of our job search advice podcast up so that we do weekly every Wednesday and it comes out every Wednesday at seven eight am, and this is really just an opportunity to try to do as much as we can on our end to help you as you might be going through a job search or even considering a new opportunity or maybe. You're in a position where you feel like you need to pivot your career because the pandemic because of the changes that have occurred everything is very chaotic, and so we wanted to try to level the field a little bit by providing you with as much information as we can on the job surge in the career search some career advice that kind of stuff. So this one's going to be relatively short because I'm. kind of relates the idea of the employment brand. Now, if you haven't been following any recruiters only ten for the past number of years, you may not have seen a lot of these posts about recruitment marketing, employment branding, and fact it's really why my career fit actually exist in the sense that we help employers tell you about what they're like more than just what you're going to find a job description more about their culture and their mission and the vision. That's what that's about. But what's interesting because of the pandemic Mark Cuban actually the the businessman famous business guy. Quoted I. Think this was probably right around the beginning of April. So not long after the coronavirus hit hit the United States he came out and said how companies respond to this crisis is going to define their brand for decades and if you didn't take care of your employs or stakeholders and put them first, you were that company. So. Basically his idea was to say, look you better be taking care of your people as best as you possibly can during this pandemic because if you don't, it's going to come back to haunt you and you're going to have a really hard time hiring people because they're going to be wondering, how did you treat your people during the pandemic? So I wanted to provide a few questions that you can ask during the interview now and even later down the road even maybe after this whole pandemic has over still some questions that you can continue to ask potential employers that you are considering. How they treated their employees, how they handled the pandemic. In, these questions actually come from Amanda Webb. She's the head of people at a company called Jim Sharpe. And she had posted these questions on twitter and I'll give you the whole read but also obviously provide you the questions to but her her tweet was this. The actions of employers is speaking a thousand words. At the moment we must remember this when applying for new roles. So here's some key questions for the interview e to ask the interviewer it could be this. What initiatives did you put in place for your employees during Kovin? What business is were most represented during cove it and what behaviors did the leadership team demonstrate when making difficult business decisions during cove. and. The last question was, how did you communicate with your employees during covert? So I. Think these are fantastic questions because it really get to the heart of the employer and how they cared for their employees. Did they just say they were care for their employees or did they really take action and? Whether actions backed up by their company values their guiding principles, their mission and their vision. Really. One thing like for a great example, this airbnb when they started to lay people off because of the pandemic. They created what they call the AIRBNB alumni list, and basically this was a long list that I believe they actually made public through Google doc where recruiters employers could go and find employees who were being laid off at Airbnb and they made their information public. So you had access to their job title what they did their contact information, and maybe even a link to a resume. was a fantastic way of supporting their employs during that time. So these are some great questions I think they're once you definitely need to ask when you go in for your interview or when you even interview on the phone and certainly if you're interviewing by zoom.

Toxic Stress

"Just as we saw light at the end of the covid tunnel, we now find ourselves back in the darkness. The psychological impacts of this pandemic being felt acutely. We live in fear of losing a loved one to the virus, a friend being killed by the police because of the color of their skin. Parents and kids exhausted of being cooped up together. Certainly told school will be online this fall millions who have lost their jobs a terrified by having to choose between buying food or paying the rent. Essential workers as stressed by the lack of effective protective equipment. The list of legitimate to worry about has grown nearly endless. Stress takes many forms and manifesto, myriad of symptoms at its was stress can elicit a toxic shock to our system that changes who we are at the very fundamental level. During covid acts of abuse neglect in household dysfunction are all on the rides while the stay at home orders help stem the tide of the pandemic. There's a mounting evidence that lead to violence in the home, becoming more severe and frequent. When we think of environmental factors that contribute to health problems like asthma, the impacts of stress from abused neglected dysfunction are often overlooked in the last decade understanding of both adverse childhood, experiences and toxic stress as adults has evolved. In large part, this is due to the work of Dr Nadine. Bug Harris an award-winning physician, researcher and advocate dedicated to changing the way society responds to Childhood Trauma. Doctor Doug Harris was appointed as California's first ever surgeon general by Governor Gavin Newsom in January twenty nine team. As California in general Nadine has had a bold goal to reduce adverse childhood experiences also known by the acronym ace or aces by half in one generation Dr Buck. Harris's career has been dedicated to serving vulnerable communities and combating the root causes of health disparities. After completing residency at Stanford she founded a clinic in one of San Francisco's most undeserved communities, Bayview hunters point it was Ed's. That Buck Harris observed that despite the implementation of National Best Practices for Immunizations Asthma. Obesity treatment and other preventive health measures a patient's still faced outsized risks for poor health, development and behavioral outcomes. In Two thousand eleven, she founded the Center Youth Wellness and subsequently grew the organization to be a national leader in the effort to advance pediatric medicine raise public awareness and transform the way society responds to children exposed to adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress. Dr Bernard Harris Is Talk. How Childhood Trauma Effects Health across the lifetime has been viewed more than six million times have book. The deepest will healing the long term effects of childhood adversity was called indispensable by the. New York Times I stopped by asking. What is like to be surgeon general during the time of Kobe? It's a little crazy. Yeah, it's a new role within government. It also feels really important. Because in this moment I think a lot of people are recognizing the importance of public health, and it's coming to a new level of awareness for a lot of people and so i. think that creates a lot of opportunities that I'm really grateful for. We will say this, but we kind of take our health for granted. Nadine we. We we go about our lives and this has been such a shock to the system. That is nearly all that we think about now for a lot of us. We're not just in this moment of covert nineteen, which is has been this incredible health crisis, but it's also showing all the cracks in our safety. Net it showing how much there are so many people who can't live without paycheck at. At showing how many folks are on the front lines it showing how dependent we are on healthcare, it's also showing how mental health is a huge issues, the stress of the pandemic and it's also showing up in the racial disparities right when we look and see that black and Brown folks are dying at a higher rate like there's a pandemic that comes across our country across the globe and yet. Yet in the United, states what see is that black and Brown people are dying at a substantially greater rate than others when I see the racial disparities around Kovin I feel outraged every day and I think about my kids and everything that I'm working for to ensure that they live in a state and in a country where they simply have equal opportunity right now. I'm not asking for a leg. Asking for any kind of you know anything special, and simply asking for equal opportunity for my children to be healthy, and well for my children to have their God given right to grow up and make themselves whatever it is that they will make of themselves, and so from that standpoint, it's been terribly challenging time if I'm speaking honestly because you know, we're all working around the clock, fighting Covid, and then we also have to be fighting all these other pieces fighting racial discrimination structural inequalities, all of these different pieces and for me, the fight has never felt more important and it. It feels like we're right on the front

World Premier Episode - burst 01

"Hello America. And welcome to the midnight. Patriots involves Spartan and I am flanked by Phoenix, Drip Dick, and mark. We are the midnight patriots and you may be asking yourselves why in the hell are we doing this? Well, got to be honest with you. Everybody has insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny that and we have day jobs. So we're GONNA talk in the series about the Constitution the bill of rights politics national current events. WE'RE GONNA call out here anyway guardless of the perceive political flavor using these standards of information logic and a passion for liberty. So that being said, I wanted to read something here real quick on our maiden voyage as sort of a sort of a way to set the standard. This this passage I'm about to read was actually written by. Thomas Paine one of our founders and framers, and regardless of how you see this man and the values that he possessed in that day that this was written this was written about seven months after the excuse me five months after the declaration of independence. So this is a this is a passage from December twenty, third, seventeen, seventy, six many of you have heard the the the line of this but I'm to go a little bit deeper into it, and hopefully this'll give the show some sort of context and and we hope we can earn your support as as time goes on. So this is from December twenty, third seventeen, seventy, six when the When the Revolutionary War was still going on and it says says as follows. These are the Times that try men's souls. Summer soldier in the Sun signed gatriways will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands by it now deserves the love and the thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, there's not easily conquered. Yet, we have this consolation with us at the heart of the conflict, the more glorious triumphs. What we obtained too cheap. We assume too lightly. It is dearness only that gives every thing. It's value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. And it would be strange indeed if so celestial and article as freedom. Should not be highly rated. So those are the kind of the words that I could keep in mind as we go through this in every man here every person associated with this show would definitely be on the flag to make sure that the stretch stay read. So we're GONNA open up tonight and we're going to kind of open up the insanity that we've been seeing around our country regarding corona virus covid nineteen. Now everybody fever mind that none of us are medical professionals and our virologist by any stretch of the imagination where relating experiences and questions nothing that we say should be taken as any sort of diagnostic approach or any sort of Expert opinion. That said yours truly your host here Paul Spartan well, actually come at this from a perspective of being Osha certified in matters of respirators and and breathing protection. the rest of US come at this from from our own particular viewpoints and speculations. So let's just get started off So boys, we got we have. Governors California and Texas walking. Act Actual reopenings and we've got quote unquote more and indecisive confirmations, Cova, spreading but for but amazingly somehow in New York, they're reporting any new deaths or anybody WANNA start with an opinion on that. Honestly. You know I mean there's been some conversation prior to. Between myself and the other members. That's. Something is pulling the strings somewhere. Other than CDC, a hospital staff, surgeon, general things of that nature. Quite honestly, you know whatever it was whatever stream you Asian that recently came out that. Took a Italy Area. Jersey Pennsylvania. Great. Has stated sure. But why is it only California Texas? That more back that we know of your again to the states in the continental United States. Voting populace in those states. So my question now. WHO formed strings? Think. That's the overarching point here is that you know in in my experience not to get too nerdy and go too far down the rabbit hole but the same government that's telling us you know to be afraid and take particular actions like wearing cloth masks. Are the same ones that are telling us that the cloth masks don't work. I can tell you from from Osha Training and ocean certification that airborne pathogens particularly viruses. Are listed in the sub micron rage. Now that sounds that sounds really really you know interesting or maybe even boring but something that has to be realized is that when something is a sub micron particle. It passes right through the we've of a mask. Require its own moisture source. Now. Obviously state standard state standards vary but in the train I've received anything in the sub micron range requires a A. A SELF CONTAINED OXYGEN SOURCE With the use of a mask in that in that particular bio suit I mean if you WanNa, take a look and you think you're safe by wearing a cloth mask look at whatever rally just wears in a lab. When he's working with this type of contagion, it isn't a cloth masks. He wears a moon suit with a separate oxygen supply I mean there seems to be my perception is that the same people that are that are trying to Promote the panic are the ones trying to peddle a secure and make trillions and any thoughts on John? I think they're actually. No I. Think There's definitely you know financial motivation behind. This whether it's big whether it's by hospitals by a parent companies own hospitals. I mean. There's definitely something I think that financially pushes everything I mean between them getting you know a nice. paycheck at for each person, they list with Kobe or each person that unfortunately passes. listed. With Kovin. You, know they get a Giant financial. Yes if you will. Of money which I think pushes ally of these. Claims of more cases rising I mean like we. Previously is if you talk about the fact that of you know there's people around that work in the profession that there are things have been going around that they've sent. You know unused test the places. And they've come back positive when they haven't been used. But who who? Who who is the guy over in Africa, that tested a tested a fruit and a goat. And they both came back. Positive. Does anybody remember that news But you already your point but more to your point I believe the last figure I heard to. Last year I heard from the federal government was somewhere in the area of fifty to eighty five thousand dollars total for the treatment, and if the the particular person passes, the patient passes they get more. Does anybody have any information to dispute that because I think that was the last count that I heard. Be last information that I have. At, least. It's nineteen thousand dollars for a diagnosed case. Thirty eight thousand dollars if they are required hospital say and it goes up exponentially require respirator ICU care. They stay longer than hot. You're in you're out you're gone. So that being said. We all know that it'll supposedly. This bill. Gates himself and his research company. Or the ones that. Found viruses no did all the. Problems. I'm looking for here research. But. My question is if they did all the research, why did they come up with as well or have they? That's a question I posed to you folks. Well, I know they re you know they actually waiting to get ten thousand dollars plus from insurance companies and the federal government per dose mean. There's an argument to be made there. I mean, the guy is not a doctor nor is he of Arale just he just wants to make a make a killing on the here. Now that by the way is not an argument for any sort of socialized medicine. It's an absolute. It's an absolute disgusting power-hungry move at the cost of well forget about just American lives. What about globally, what have what is a million people in the ground now lifted discovered related At least one point three. If I remember correctly I could be wrong. Well, I got the second portion. Really a big to ask now is Bill Gates can't keep a bug out of his own computers what you're GONNA do with the world. Exactly number one key couldn't build a computer didn't crash three times a day for no reason. So why would we trust him with with people's lives? You know I mean he would. There was a there was a tit for tat went back and forth on social media several several years ago when he was still a once he was the kingpin of Microsoft. And he had mentioned something like You know if the auto industry had made many advances in the computer industry over the last twenty years, we'd all be driving cars that got a thousand miles to the gallon and went from zero to one hundred and two seconds to which I believe. It was the CEO at the time of Ford replied. Well. Yeah. But then the cars would crash twice a day for no reason. So. I mean you. Good Cryptic. I was GonNa say, well, then you you look at Osso. When you're talking about these numbers, go into hospitals. How many hospitals or possibly owned by the same parent company that owns the farms that the big farms that are gonna sit there and. Produce this vaccine all the sudden. Or? Not to say that they don't already have it and are just. Still waiting. I mean I know there's always testing and they have to get FDA approval and God knows what else but I mean, what's to say? that. They're not. You know getting twice the paychecks. On. Both things. Oh. Yeah. There's there's no doubt they're doubling down does absolutely no doubt doubling down your that said the other the other things that I've noticed here I don't know if everybody's been keeping up like I have. There's a Lotta unconstitutional shift happening. Okay. And I mean. Just heard I. Heard I. Heard Mark Heard Mark Giggling that that's fine because. The little that they'll get into that in a little bit but also just I wanna take a moment mark You serve this country with honor and distinction for several years in that in the military and I got to thank you for that Phoenix. You did as well and I got to say thank you for that. You protected my right to become a fat video playing hotdog eating copy guzzling douchebag that you see before you now and some of US servicemen appreciate that and Thank you. Appreciate. Bill. Hey they already did. They're called the IRS and believe me they're up my don't shit. I don't know where they I don't know where I ended maybe. It's not. So we've got measured we've got measures being proposed in in in multiple stages. Here is all the way from you know putting additional taxes on firearms to ammunition and then requiring a federal license. To purchase either. we've got the state of California. Who is you know? Well, let's just be honest they're doing what California does. It essentially eliminated their own their own Anti discrimination laws I don't know how that happened Where the hell does anybody see an end game here other than complete and total? Marxist. Shithole. That's where these lefties and I'm not GONNA say Liberals. Anymore. He's people are leftist-marxist pigs and by the way if any of you listening fuck off, don't ever come back. None of us here at. Fourth Yeah. This year at the Midnight Patriots give a flying fuck what you We don't have time to answer your e mails and believe me you're better off just turning off because if you heard that your heads probably. And I don't WanNa hear about it. Okay. You be somewhere else. All right. Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than I'll just say it an open civil war. Mean I feel like I feel like patience like like those are the Sierra on the on the on the conference. Are being, backed into a corner. Yeah we're basically damned if we do. We're damned if we don't any anybody want to comment on that. No Matt Aspect. Mark Yeah. Well, the thing is like you hope it doesn't cover some this ridiculous. Of course. By, by thing is I would I guess probably is right now I don't know. Civil. War who against who? In other words, how would how would you distinguish I'll be okay Tepa. Got It the OH black lives matter. Got It. But. How do you distinguish? You gotta be. That's a great question. That's the real. That's a real problem is that we're facing a A faceless boogeyman to keep us all in our homes and isolated from one another. We've got blatant constitutional no violations from New York California including the first second third amendments. Fourth amendment. I mean and they're just they're not apologetic about it. They're just in your face to. Has. Closed Down Churches and locked Rock Jewish people out of their own parts. What's his name from says. Yeah. Is violating blatantly violating the first. Amendment people they can't sing in. Church. Are you kidding me. I mean, I'm not a religious separation of church and state. Well and second of all I mean, how does anybody look at that and not go holy shit let the lawsuits commence. Honestly So, now here's the thing I. WanNa Make It. I WanNa make it very clear for the audience and even those in the group I am not advocating for an open civil war where we start shooting. Okay. I would also like to say here only for myself but I believe that that I do not believe in the Black Lives Organization the Black Lives Matter Organization. I believe in the message black lives matter just as much as every other life and we should all be equal before the law we should be overseas equal treatment especially before the law. But. I'm not going to back a group that is Marxist and comes out and basically says it if you don't give us what we want, we're GONNA burn the system that the ground. I mean all here. Again, I mean if you have said organization that is in fact, baking a threat whether they considered idol. They considered valid. It is still a threat to. The life. Well, exactly how how do we not take that? How do we not take that based on the the instances of the last month? Says we says, we all watched the the horrific murder of a of a citizen by by discussing human being police officer. How do we? How do we not take that as anything other than a threat of actual violence based on recent history? Therein. Lies The question that I would poses that to go along with remarks you know who who exactly is going to do is A. Government. It's a radical leaders. Of States counties, cities, whatever. Or is it going to be people for people? We have. What did you just leave knowing? When you just gotTa love the irony that the Minnesota governor had the balls to ask the white. House for for bailout money after they let their city burn. I, mean, I understand there are citizens that were affected by that. But you know my argument would be well I'll tell you what once you spend the money that you say from you know. From dissolving your police. Believe. Yeah what you spend that money go ahead. Save yourself though you know the. Four hundred million dollars spent annually on your police force. Etc.. And They're not gonNA, pass it out. There's a blank check to the people because well, you know we don't get our tax money that way. Exactly. HAVE YOUR IS A. Stalemate along the lines of. City Minneapolis Saint Paul's which Is Looking for a five hundred dollar bill out the government's GONNA help. They're going to have to get that money somewhere. Well exactly and the question. Phoenix afraid now, but to answer your question or respond to your statement. I believe you said they're not gonNA raise taxes through the roof to do it. Of course, they will. Of course they will in turn. Bring. I. That's. That's a real trick. Isn't is when the IRS gets involved or whatever State Department revenue they have comes and starts locking people up the people sheepishly combine. and. The guy will probably get reelected. Let's be honest. Well you will probably see. You'll probably see something for the cities that were affected by riots and everything put into like a another stimulus bill passed by the house. Like they have added that money there you go to a legal and yeah. And everything else that I wouldn't put it past the House to sit there and add a piece in there that every city that was affected by these riots or has hardships now. Get X. amount of. Millions of dollars as part of this. Bill to. Help, stimulate the economy and the people that actually are affected by all this. That, it should be helping they'll put their. Claws into it and put. Extra things that won't matter, and then it'll sit there and argue back and forth between the House, and the Senate for God knows how long Because they won't budge on wasn't it? Well one thing you have to love about the strategy employed by the Democrats they're gonNA. They're gonNA try to stick it in something that make the president look bad if he vetoes it. Oh. Yeah. It'll be. It'll be some sort of. Bill and he'll have to it, and then they'll scream how he doesn't care about children. Exactly among the media will be all over it. Media will be all over at bashing him. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. The president doesn't care about the future. There for the last four years anyway. Well Yeah they've they've. It's funny. I. Yeah I was GONNA say I. Johnson and Nixon for sure. But you know twenty I hear people talking about Oh. Trump won't accept the results of the twenty twenty election loses you guys still haven't accepted the fact that you're get forty. Or the fact that impeachment failed yeah. Yeah the. Everything else. Rono. Everything else that you've thrown at them hasn't stuck. Exactly this is. This is reality you know this is not theory. All this stuff is happened. You know. I saw something today and I don't remember where it was talking about the reason that you know that. They want to sit there and blame trump for not being ready for this pandemic and everything was because the other half of the fence was sitting there. So busy trying to get him out for the last four years that he couldn't take time to focus. On being prepared for anything like that. The funny part is, is I I'm trying. I'm trying to I'm I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of hearing how Trump getting the blame for a hundred and thirty thousand body bags. Here this is this is the thing we need to do things. We need to change the story number one it should be only a hundred, thirty, thousand, five bags why? If if anybody recalls I do specifically PURDIS MR TRUMP DONALD TRUMP put a travel ban in effect once we had ten positive cases in this country, the left assailed him for weeks for doing it. Okay. Nancy. Pelosi went to Chinatown encourage people not to wear masks Blah Blah. Xenophobic Racist Blah Blah Blah, pick your s that's yacht called, and now all of a sudden they WANNA blame him for one hundred, thirty, thousand body bags may explain something if he hadn't done what he did when he did, there'd be a million three bodybags. Okay end of discussion this has nothing to do with mass. This is all a political fucking game and and I'm tired of hearing about it. Except from you guys I love your new guys. DOTS. I. Think. Let's just put that on record right now. Yeah you're paid to talk matter of fact, we don't pay you at all. Yes. I think we have a contract we'll get. something. About our bucks and it'll happen advil or something like that. I. Think it was under someone nine. I was a corner of starbucks eight was a quarter of an advil and half starbucks get it straight monthly and you're no. Damage. Send Me. Oreo. Wait a minute. I want kids count. You want to renegotiate. All of your agent moved to Seattle. Yeah exactly somebody please his comments to that brick wall over there. Oh Yeah. Yeah. All right I feel like I've rented enough. Is there anything you gentlemen WANNA cover that I missed? How `bout? Redskins finally caving. By quest over we're going we're going for football. Then we're GONNA touch the Third Rail Ladies and gentlemen he just licked and grabbed it go right ahead phoenix. I did read an article that. There are some and I'm not saying a whole bowl loan. I'm not saying that YOU KNOW ENTIRE PATIENT O. Or and it's hard tribal right that there are in fact, some of the indigenous votes, native Americans. That want keep it because it actually gives them a sense of ownership relevant. We've along on this we have this. We can follow this because that is you know a depiction of our people. What's the Redskins fans great. I have no problem with that if there. was somebody like football but hey, you know I, see it representation in my people here. Thank you. There are well, we don't get me wrong that no, all fuck you and take it other. Cash kind of it's actually kind of funny that you mentioned that being that I'm also for those of us this for those of you just tuning in and getting no us as we get to know you I, am a football nut job I have been since my early days Yes. I was GONNA. Say I think there's actually incriminating proof out there wasn't much of a about football I gotta tell you. My love for the game has often outweighed all of this You know all the polit political bullshit that's going on in the game for quite some time. Get into Kapernick, that's a whole other rent for me that lasts about forty five minutes and maybe we'll do an episode just on that Now, there was always my understanding in watching anything about the Washington redskins and and the history of them that the that the team was supposedly named for one of their assistant coaches who was native American and it was if anybody. I played football I I. I. I know that Phoenix not sure if you did mark You know everybody everybody on the football field to talk shit and especially to your friends okay and Just because you have some sort of negative pejorative is a nickname, doesn't mean that people hate you Okay. So The, the the legend was and I've actually since found out found out, different resin was at the team was named for in honor of one of their beloved assistant coaches. Evidently that's not the case. Racist over racist overtones aside I? Mean we can dissect anything want. Come up with all kinds of. The point being is, why don't we just name? The region Caucasians and everybody'll be happy. Okay I mean. Seriously also living in living in Florida I gotTa tell you the university or she state has a deal to to use the seminole name from the from the seminal nation. They paid them royalties every year, which is why you don't hear this here the Indigenous People screaming about Florida state. Okay. So You know I I don't I don't want to say they haven't been relevant for twenty years. Hey easy. I. Agree I agree too I mean my head. One is, Emma water but. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute mark. Are You All I I. Take over the gators day. Well me too because. No. Fan. You know what you know University of Miami and the Florida. GATOR gator. Yeah. So It's just block. Gives you wondering we all love each other teams until we play each other so that that being said. Does anybody have any idea about the outrage regarding redskins? Honestly. I mean I might just you know that stupid that I don't see the problem with the name it's the name of sports team. Okay. I mean we'RE GONNA change the Cleveland Indians. Are we gonNA change you know aerobics Today. But that's again that's a whole other. That's a whole other thing. But how many? Are they are all the sports teams just to be to be called the daisies and you know we're good to go. Or how about the banana flavor wouldn't? Well, this is like football gets get. Exactly. Yeah. Very wrapped up about injuries and things like that. Like five put flags on. Let's play flag football. But that's really the other thing I mean. You can argue that these guys are being paid wages that are equivalent to see to. Well, okay. hazard pay I mean there's they're making millions and millions of dollars. No offense I, what what what what come? Okay. These these guys mostly have guaranteed contracts. So, you break your leg. You're out of the game you're still getting paid and you should have gotten a degree so you should be able to join the workforce afterwards. Well. Puffing along the line that you know you're getting my mom bought list during my day. Is. Lump everything together all of one. We have you know events that have taken place because of. What took place. In A now it's moved to now we're going to start tearing down statues of anybody that. Could would did whatever. But now okay. Well, we need to keep that ball rolling. So we need this Norfolk Russell. Hey. Let's NFL take. Let's go up for baseball teams. Blackhawks. I love the fact that the blackhawks till they told those guys to stuff it. They're like, no, we're not change Noel. I mean yeah, and also also the the pretty big assumption there is that these people that are tearing down statues have any clue who they are I mean want to remove a statue wondering. I it's like I'll take the consequences of not taking US history for eight hundred Alex. Basically. Look, we get to wipe out four. Daily double. All right. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA. PULL DOWN WE'RE. GonNa pull out Lincoln and we're GONNA pull down the statue of an abolitionist. Yeah. Let's do that. Oh Yeah. Well, they're not even educated. They're pulling down you know. They're pulling down. Statues of people that fought four slavery. To to abolish slavery, they're pulling down. I mean I saw they ruined the Frederick Douglass. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah you mean the guy that advised Lincoln on how to actually take slavery down Gee I can't imagine why you hear him down. Clearly again, that's That's World Super Eight Hundred Alex. Exactly exactly no no, it's not world history. It's common core history. That's that's right. And? There is no wrong answer to one plus one. Knew exactly. All right boys I. think that's going to wrap it up for. I. Think that's going to wrap it up this particular episode everybody that joined us. Thank you very much.

"Patriots Pau. Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity, we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, Hey, man, you know we should just record a podcast but the more we looked the more expensive became. Get Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So. Get yourself anchor make voice her. Hello America. And welcome to the midnight. Patriots involves Spartan and I am flanked by Phoenix, Drip Dick, and mark. We are the midnight patriots and you may be asking yourselves why in the hell are we doing this? Well, got to be honest with you. Everybody has insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny that and we have day jobs. So we're GONNA talk in the series about the Constitution the bill of rights politics national current events. WE'RE GONNA call out here anyway guardless of the perceive political flavor using these standards of information logic and a passion for liberty. So that being said, I wanted to read something here real quick on our maiden voyage as sort of a sort of a way to set the standard. This this passage I'm about to read was actually written by. Thomas Paine one of our founders and framers, and regardless of how you see this man and the values that he possessed in that day that this was written this was written about seven months after the excuse me five months after the declaration of independence. So this is a this is a passage from December twenty, third, seventeen, seventy, six many of you have heard the the the line of this but I'm to go a little bit deeper into it, and hopefully this'll give the show some sort of context and and we hope we can earn your support as as time goes on. So this is from December twenty, third seventeen, seventy, six when the When the Revolutionary War was still going on and it says says as follows. These are the Times that try men's souls. Summer soldier in the Sun signed gatriways will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands by it now deserves the love and the thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, there's not easily conquered. Yet, we have this consolation with us at the heart of the conflict, the more glorious triumphs. What we obtained too cheap. We assume too lightly. It is dearness only that gives every thing. It's value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. And it would be strange indeed if so celestial and article as freedom. Should not be highly rated. So those are the kind of the words that I could keep in mind as we go through this in every man here every person associated with this show would definitely be on the flag to make sure that the stretch stay read. So we're GONNA open up tonight and we're going to kind of open up the insanity that we've been seeing around our country regarding corona virus covid nineteen. Now everybody fever mind that none of us are medical professionals and our virologist by any stretch of the imagination where relating experiences and questions nothing that we say should be taken as any sort of diagnostic approach or any sort of Expert opinion. That said yours truly your host here Paul Spartan well, actually come at this from a perspective of being Osha certified in matters of respirators and and breathing protection. the rest of US come at this from from our own particular viewpoints and speculations. So let's just get started off So boys, we got we have. Governors California and Texas walking. Act Actual reopenings and we've got quote unquote more and indecisive confirmations, Cova, spreading but for but amazingly somehow in New York, they're reporting any new deaths or anybody WANNA start with an opinion on that. Honestly. You know I mean there's been some conversation prior to. Between myself and the other members. That's. Something is pulling the strings somewhere. Other than CDC, a hospital staff, surgeon, general things of that nature. Quite honestly, you know whatever it was whatever stream you Asian that recently came out that. Took a Italy Area. Jersey Pennsylvania. Great. Has stated sure. But why is it only California Texas? That more back that we know of your again to the states in the continental United States. Voting populace in those states. So my question now. WHO formed strings? Think. That's the overarching point here is that you know in in my experience not to get too nerdy and go too far down the rabbit hole but the same government that's telling us you know to be afraid and take particular actions like wearing cloth masks. Are the same ones that are telling us that the cloth masks don't work. I can tell you from from Osha Training and ocean certification that airborne pathogens particularly viruses. Are listed in the sub micron rage. Now that sounds that sounds really really you know interesting or maybe even boring but something that has to be realized is that when something is a sub micron particle. It passes right through the we've of a mask. Require its own moisture source. Now. Obviously state standard state standards vary but in the train I've received anything in the sub micron range requires a A. A SELF CONTAINED OXYGEN SOURCE With the use of a mask in that in that particular bio suit I mean if you WanNa, take a look and you think you're safe by wearing a cloth mask look at whatever rally just wears in a lab. When he's working with this type of contagion, it isn't a cloth masks. He wears a moon suit with a separate oxygen supply I mean there seems to be my perception is that the same people that are that are trying to Promote the panic are the ones trying to peddle a secure and make trillions and any thoughts on John? I think they're actually. No I. Think There's definitely you know financial motivation behind. This whether it's big whether it's by hospitals by a parent companies own hospitals. I mean. There's definitely something I think that financially pushes everything I mean between them getting you know a nice. paycheck at for each person, they list with Kobe or each person that unfortunately passes. listed. With Kovin. You, know they get a Giant financial. Yes if you will. Of money which I think pushes ally of these. Claims of more cases rising I mean like we. Previously is if you talk about the fact that of you know there's people around that work in the profession that there are things have been going around that they've sent. You know unused test the places. And they've come back positive when they haven't been used. But who who? Who who is the guy over in Africa, that tested a tested a fruit and a goat. And they both came back. Positive. Does anybody remember that news But you already your point but more to your point I believe the last figure I heard to. Last year I heard from the federal government was somewhere in the area of fifty to eighty five thousand dollars total for the treatment, and if the the particular person passes, the patient passes they get more. Does anybody have any information to dispute that because I think that was the last count that I heard. Be last information that I have. At, least. It's nineteen thousand dollars for a diagnosed case. Thirty eight thousand dollars if they are required hospital say and it goes up exponentially require respirator ICU care. They stay longer than hot. You're in you're out you're gone. So that being said. We all know that it'll supposedly. This bill. Gates himself and his research company. Or the ones that. Found viruses no did all the. Problems. I'm looking for here research. But. My question is if they did all the research, why did they come up with as well or have they? That's a question I posed to you folks. Well, I know they re you know they actually waiting to get ten thousand dollars plus from insurance companies and the federal government per dose mean. There's an argument to be made there. I mean, the guy is not a doctor nor is he of Arale just he just wants to make a make a killing on the here. Now that by the way is not an argument for any sort of socialized medicine. It's an absolute. It's an absolute disgusting power-hungry move at the cost of well forget about just American lives. What about globally, what have what is a million people in the ground now lifted discovered related At least one point three. If I remember correctly I could be wrong. Well, I got the second portion. Really a big to ask now is Bill Gates can't keep a bug out of his own computers what you're GONNA do with the world. Exactly number one key couldn't build a computer didn't crash three times a day for no reason. So why would we trust him with with people's lives? You know I mean he would. There was a there was a tit for tat went back and forth on social media several several years ago when he was still a once he was the kingpin of Microsoft. And he had mentioned something like You know if the auto industry had made many advances in the computer industry over the last twenty years, we'd all be driving cars that got a thousand miles to the gallon and went from zero to one hundred and two seconds to which I believe. It was the CEO at the time of Ford replied. Well. Yeah. But then the cars would crash twice a day for no reason. So. I mean you. Good Cryptic. I was GonNa say, well, then you you look at Osso. When you're talking about these numbers, go into hospitals. How many hospitals or possibly owned by the same parent company that owns the farms that the big farms that are gonna sit there and. Produce this vaccine all the sudden. Or? Not to say that they don't already have it and are just. Still waiting. I mean I know there's always testing and they have to get FDA approval and God knows what else but I mean, what's to say? that. They're not. You know getting twice the paychecks. On. Both things. Oh. Yeah. There's there's no doubt they're doubling down does absolutely no doubt doubling down your that said the other the other things that I've noticed here I don't know if everybody's been keeping up like I have. There's a Lotta unconstitutional shift happening. Okay. And I mean. Just heard I. Heard I. Heard Mark Heard Mark Giggling that that's fine because. The little that they'll get into that in a little bit but also just I wanna take a moment mark You serve this country with honor and distinction for several years in that in the military and I got to thank you for that Phoenix. You did as well and I got to say thank you for that. You protected my right to become a fat video playing hotdog eating copy guzzling douchebag that you see before you now and some of US servicemen appreciate that and Thank you. Appreciate. Bill. Hey they already did. They're called the IRS and believe me they're up my don't shit. I don't know where they I don't know where I ended maybe. It's not. So we've got measured we've got measures being proposed in in in multiple stages. Here is all the way from you know putting additional taxes on firearms to ammunition and then requiring a federal license. To purchase either. we've got the state of California. Who is you know? Well, let's just be honest they're doing what California does. It essentially eliminated their own their own Anti discrimination laws I don't know how that happened Where the hell does anybody see an end game here other than complete and total? Marxist. Shithole. That's where these lefties and I'm not GONNA say Liberals. Anymore. He's people are leftist-marxist pigs and by the way if any of you listening fuck off, don't ever come back. None of us here at. Fourth Yeah. This year at the Midnight Patriots give a flying fuck what you We don't have time to answer your e mails and believe me you're better off just turning off because if you heard that your heads probably. And I don't WanNa hear about it. Okay. You be somewhere else. All right. Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than

Fat Phobia and It's Racist Past and Present

"As a teen Sabrina strings loved getting to hang out with her grandma even when her grandma was obsessing over one of her soap operas I remember one time. She called me into the living room and she's like Sabrina look at Victoria. McCoy's kept on young and the restless. Victoria is killing herself to him. Why are white women dying to be thin? Fast forward to one three adult Sabrina was working at an HIV medication adherence clinic in San, Francisco, where she witnessed real life, examples of women sacrificing their health to be thin nights, spoken to a couple of women both HIV positive who refused to take their HIV medications for fear of gaining weight, and that blew my mind, and immediately took me back to conversations I've been having with my grandma like gosh onto something so important you know when she was talking about it, she saw it as largely a white phenomenon, but the women I interviewed that day. We're both color. Why were these women dying to be thin and did race have anything to do with? Him. Sabrina went on to become a sociologist at the University of California Irvine and wrote a whole book investigating these questions. If you're like me, you might have assumed that. There was some moment in between Marilyn Monroe. TWIGGY EH in which. Suddenly we'll. We suddenly became fat-phobic in those three years, but Sabrina started digging looking at nineteenth century magazines like Harper's bazaar in what she found was troubling articles warning American women well middle class and upper class white women. They needed to watch what they eat, and they were unapologetic, and stating that this was the proper form for. Jackson Protestant women, and so it was important that women eight as little as necessary in order to show their Christian nature and also their racial superiority. Today on the show we go all the way back to the transatlantic slave trade to understand the racial origins of fat phobia, and how black people are still dealing with the consequences today? I mattie Safai and this is shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. So Sabrina. Let's let's get into what you discovered about the history of fat phobia a little bit you. You did a ton of research and you started the story several centuries back in Europe definitely in the ethos that like Renaissance Women. you know we're full figured. And that was absolutely a thing that was valued, and then there was a big shift explain what was going on back then so it turns out that the growth of the slave trade, especially by the eighteenth century led to new articulations of what types of appearance we could expect of people by different races, and also what types of behaviors. Such that by the middle of Eighteenth Century, a lot of French philosophers in particular were arguing that you know what when we're in the colonies, we're noticing that Africans are sensuous. They love sex and they love food, and for this reason they tend to be too fat. Europeans have rational self control. This is what makes us the premier race of the world, so in terms of body. Body size, we should be slender, and we should watch what we eat so okay Sabrina. Are you telling me that? When the slave trade started and European saw that African women were essentially curvy much like European women at the time at that point, they decided that being fat being thicker wasn't ideal anymore, and they built a system of oppression around this idea of needing to be. Thinned to prove racial superiority is at eight am I close. It's not quite as intentional as that. Effectively what they determined was that. You know we want it to be able to have a mechanism for ensuring that we could recognize who was slave, and it was free right, and it was easy in the beginning of the was simply skin color. What did you might imagine? After two hundred years of living in close proximity skin color really no longer works has a mechanism right, because now we have all of these people who are We would consider them today to be by racial, and so what they did was they decided to articulate new aspects of racial identity and so eating and body size became of the characteristics that were being used to suggest that these are people who do not deserve freedom. The trans, Atlantic slave trade eventually ended, but argues that we are still absolutely living with these racist attitudes about body size today. And in her book, she also traces how these anti-fat attitudes worked their way into modern medicine for somewhat arbitrarily, reasons for example take BMI or body mass index. That equation actually wasn't intended to be used to measure individual fatness. Though of course doctors did and still do today, can you? Can you explain the problem with using am I as a measure for obesity especially when it comes to black women, who I know have been told that they have the highest rates of obesity according to that measurement to be am I. Yes, so am. I is a measure of the ratio of a person's weight to their height. And what this does not account for is bone density. Muscular already any other type of genetic influences in your way or cultural environmental influences in your weight, and so, what ended up happening? As many people pointed out is that you might have to people with the same BMI, but vastly different life experiences embody compositions outside of the simple reality of their weight to height ratio, right, and the problem of applying this to them in particular, is that African American populations as studies have shown for literal decades since at least the eighties tends to be healthier at heavier weights than white populations. And so that already is an indication that cross racially. This is not a very useful tool, not to mention the fact that even within race there are going to be vastly different experiences, of an individual body between like their weight and their health profile so surreal this message from the medical establishment that excess weight is the biggest you know reason for black women's health problems or a very central of it. Why do you see it as so damaging? For Black Women, ultimately, the main advice that people are given when they so called obese is to lose weight, and there are so many problems with this. We have been telling people to lose weight for decades. What ends up happening is that they either don't lose the weight or they sometimes do lose the weight, and then frequently gain it back so first off. It could be more harmful to tell people to lose weight in the long run, and then in addition to that there are the psychological effects of telling people that their bodies are wrong. Right at their bodies are inherently unhealthy This type of fat stigma also leads to health outcomes right right right, so let's talk about this. In the context of covid nineteen I'm thinking about the recent New York Times op Ed you wrote about how cove nineteen is disproportionately impacting. Impacting people of Color specifically black people, and how you took issue with obesity, gaining traction as a leading explanation for that disparity, so talked me a little bit about that. This piece was actually motivated by something that I felt was very troubling, which was I had been seeing so many report, suggesting that the disparities in Colbert outcomes between white populations and black populations. They would say things like well. You know there's already the pre existing factor of obesity, and somehow that was one of the first things that come up and I thought there is very little evidence that disparities in quote unquote obesity are what's contributing to these negative outcomes, but there's plenty of evidence to suggest that Kobe. Fatalities or maybe even serious complications with Kobe nineteen are being influenced by people's environments. Are they essential workers? Do they have access to enough soap and water hand sanitizer, and so of course might imagine that the ability to socially distance to shelter in place to have access to healthy foods under Corinthian, all of this is very much being structured by a person's social location and black people tend to live in communities without access. Access to a lot of different healthy and life giving resources. Yeah, in in Sabrina, I'll tell you that as a person that reads a lot of the literature on Kovin prisoner biologists I am seeing a lot of papers coming out that are associating with the obesity without with health outcomes of COVID, but those links tend to be correlated right, but even if we were to find out that there's absolutely a causal link. Link between covert and obesity which I think you're arguing. There isn't one especially right now. At least the rates of obesity and white and black populations aren't actually that different right like it wouldn't necessarily be the thing that made it. So can you tell me a little bit about those rates versus the actual percentage of disparities? We're seeing so according to the CDC, the Obesity Twain. African, American and white populations are. Are Forty two point, two percent for white populations and forty nine point, seven percents for black populations are about that and so we're looking at effectively a seven percentage point disparity between white and black populations in terms of rates of obesity, however, when we're looking at serious complications with covert nineteen. What we're seeing is that black people are dying at rates of two point four to seven times that of white populations. How that's seven percentage point differential is leading to two point four to seven times the disparity in serious complications. Death. No one's really being able to explain that. This is the problem with the kind of cords of studies, which is that they lead people to believe that somehow. Is One of the drivers when in fact it could simply be a confounding in these studies, but we're so used to studying obesity and treating these correlations as if they are evidence of causal link that people are frequently not being very critical when they're seeing studies that show these relationships. Sabrina, you've obviously spent years by now working to understand this issue and to educate folks about it I'm wondering you know like why why this. Why have you specifically taken this on one of the reasons? Why continue to do it? Is I've seen what a difference? It's made to people's lives. I mean I've had so many people reach out and tell me that they felt for the longest time like something was wrong, but no one was talking about it or that I have spoken to their personal experience. I couldn't have imagined when I started doing this work. That could have possibly had the impact that it's had you know I'm standing on the shoulders of giants people who have been feminist scholars medical scholars journalists who've been doing this work at least since the nineteen seventies, but we're at a moment right now where there's a critical mass of people who are aware that the discourse surrounding fatness that we've long accepted really is baseless, and we think about a new way of allowing people to have a positive relationship to their bodies, and to cultivate health within themselves and their communities that does not rely on that stigma. Okay Sabrina I appreciate you. Thank you so much for coming on the show and sharing your life and your work with us. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much. It's been a pleasure. Sabrina strings.

"kovin" Discussed on Marketing Spark

"Let's off with a question just in terms of the social media landscape pre Kovin, and what happened has happened since because the reality is, we're not socializing the way we used to go to conferences and meet up and actually going to visit prospects and customers, so has social media become a lot more social. Yes, I'm really an advocate that social networks are in fact, social networks I am not really marketing channels in their primary instant, so I believe in the absence of in person meetings. We really have social networking. We have video conferencing and and phone calls. Of course we always have but social networks and social media platforms are more important than ever have been today because we have to stay in touch with people, we have to nurture and build our networks, and we have to build what I call social capital, which is really a positive outcome from those social interactions. When I'm wondering about is whether you've noticed a discernible difference in how people are using social or trying to use social, because a lot of people are some people really into it. There are social media, animals and others are the common may go some people that social media, but overall has. Have you noticed a change in behavior? My experience has been in the last several months that there's much more focus on linked in than ever before at a professional level that people are kind of desperate to to meet others engage. Do all the things you do when you attend a conference for instance or you go to in person needing that you share ideas you learn and. I've seen a lot. More people engaged in those platforms a lot more conversation happening in linked in between people. There's people writing articles way more content that way. Just people having a need to express themselves. I certainly see business networking. Which I think is A. Really, important part of social social media, an often overlooked in a.

Trump WHO funding cut prompts criticism as virus spreads

"This afternoon president trump said he is severing U. S. ties with the World Health Organization over the U. N. agencies handling of the corona virus pandemic we will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs the president did not take questions during the roughly ten minutes long rose garden address which focused on China and here's global health correspondent Jason Beaubien was listening and he joins us now hi Jason hi Mary Louise prison trip has been threatening for months now to pull the US out what exactly did he say today about his reasons his primary complaint is that he says China's been covering up this outbreak and that that allowed it to spread all over the world he says the W. H. O. went along with these Chinese efforts to mislead the world and he says China has total control of the World Health Organization the speech blames China for the pandemic and accused the W. H. O. of being China's accomplice and that and do we know why now is there something he referred to that he says forced his hand to announce this today you know that's really unclear A. on may nineteenth he gave the WHO's thirty days to reformers said he was going to cut off funding to them entirely that was in the middle of the world health organization's main annual meeting well now it's only been ten days it was never clear exactly what the reforms were that he was asking for WHO's even expressed that they aren't clear on what are the reforms that he's looking for from them it has been on my mind is does the president actually have the authority to unilaterally decide I am terminating this relationship with the world health organization that also isn't entirely clear I you know he has pulled out of several other U. N. agencies he pulled out of UNESCO the cultural arm of the U. N. in twenty seventeen he pulled out of UNHCR the UN human rights council in twenty eighteen the WHO's somewhat different it's a member organization it's sort of like the U. N. itself Congress authorized the west to join the World Health Organization back in nineteen forty six after World War two and the WHO's charter it actually doesn't have an exit clause most governments are trying to get in rather than get out Taiwan for instance has been lobbying very hard and that has been something that the trump administration has really argued for is Taiwan's involvement in the WHL but trump however certainly can terminate U. S. funding to W. H. O. U. S. is the largest funder of the World Health Organization he can tell scientists at the CDC to stop working with the agency he can pull out of any trials that might be going on for for vaccines are testing of pharmaceuticals to to potentially treat Kovin yes he absolutely has the authority to do that just to step back for a second I mention this was during a big ten minute event that was mostly focused on China what more do we know about this disagreement with the World Health Organization is it is it coincidence that he made this announcement while he was talking about China yeah it is I don't think it's a coincidence at all the speech in the rose garden listed a lot of trump's grievances with China at the World Trade Organization was one of them Hong Kong trade the coronavirus and regarding the covert pandemic he blames China why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China it went no where else it didn't go to Beijing it went nowhere else but they allow them to freely travel throughout the world including Europe and the United States I have to point out that this is simply not true China had cases that spread to every province and territory in China including Beijing yeah and fact check another thing is there a idents that the W. H. O. was working with China to cover up the severity of the outbreak there really is no evidence of that this seems to get at the trump administration's misunderstanding of the WHO's role they have no authority to go into another country and tell that country what to do or force them to disclose anything the W. H. O. simply reports what China or any other member station reports to them and the W. H. O. says they have raised the alarm early and often about this

Is the author of twelve books. That's a lot of books most recently beers and full of fire the guide to be inglorious you jen is also the Creator and happy host. The award winning four the love podcast with John Hat maker. Delighted curator the Jed hat maker Book Club and sought after Speaker who tours the country year speaking to women and she and her husband Brandon founded the legacy collective and they also starred in the very popular series. My big family renovation and your big family renovation. Tv is a mom to five and a resident of Austin Texas where she and her family are helping to keep Austin weird there. It is that there is you got it so go ahead hit a sorry this is this is our talking over each other moment. Doing the podcast remotely. Well Jen worth. Were thrilled to have you. Your book was very timely and touching read it also very funny man there. There were a lot of flagged in folded pages for me personally From and you know we have a question a kick things off with about radical empathy and care because right now especially in our communities things are. There's so much upheaval. So what what does that look like? Do you think within our families and also our communities with people who we may not actually no. It's just such a weird time right now and I one thing that we're sort of figuring out over here at our household is that just living through such an unprecedented moment. Where all of our most of our regular tools are not at our disposal in our communities are activities school. Tra- all the things that we normally do that apart our regular rhythms which keeps his kind of healthy and connected and was virtually all of those guys. You know it's occurred to us that we have to. We can't use the old program in this in this current day and so these times are kind of calling for different measures kind of extraordinary measures when it comes to like mental care and soul care in And so we are. We kind of said in our family guys. Let's get really serious and really specific about what is hard right now. What is hurting? What are we disappointed about? Let's name it. Let's put on the table. Let's not start burying this and then try to just shellac over it and then let's really figure out. How can we meet that? Need in a different way How can we address that pain in the ways that we can address that pain right now and so you know rather than just kind of hoping that somehow soul care and mental care are despoiling? Landon our labs. We're dialing in really hard to every member of the family because we're all really different. You know we've got just so many people here you guys just so many people and and we are all enormous personalities like nobody is quiet in this family. Everybody has huge feelings tons of emotions. Billions of words And so a lot of emotional labor right now not just to figure out what I need a what everybody in the house days is just what it isn't. It's the strangest time in the world. Yes yes and you think you said on a podcast you you live in a small house and you have four kids at home. Yes somebody helped me like who will help me like we live in. A house was built in nineteen eight. So first of all it's just a little old rambling thing and yes We also have to seniors in the house right now. So we've got in college in a senior in high school and so our senior in college packed for five days to come home for spring break and he has not left five days for the staff and so he's here and which is shoved everybody like in every corner right now and in many just managing all those disappointments all those rites of passages that both seniors or missing out on such a bummer. Such a bummer. And this is one thing I told my kids and I'm telling the women in my community to which is jest. I love how my girlfriend? Kristen Howard She's like this is not a good time to sign ourselves up as competitors in the hardship Olympics. Lying really mean like coups hard is harder who status sadder It's just a terrible gain because you know we've got friends with people in a hospital with Kovin but then I've got a senior who doesn't have a prom and their book. It's all sad sad the person so I don't like the competition of who actually gets to say that they're disappointed or sad or afraid or they feel cheated. I also don't like the audible. A picks who is crushing Corentin. Best can't like I'm losing both of those games and I just don't think I don't think they serve US right now. And so I'm really just drawn to superhuman people right. Now that I find vulnerability in and honesty and truth telling trying to be that person to neither rustling people through their pain or fear or diminishing it and also not You heading on display. Like the highlight. Reel of everything. That's right because we're working hard on those things too. I think let's just find this really deeply human path through this together and I think that's really good for everybody.

Lori Loughlin to Plead Guilty in College Admissions Scandal

"Laurie Law Clinton and her husband Massimo. They finally admitted they are guilty. In the college admissions scandal they reached a plea deal which significantly reduces their sentence. I was shocked when I saw this headlines. Were you guys? Surprised at all honestly. I'm just so relieved that this has happened. And that we finally have some closure on this debacle because it is been going on for feels like four adver and I also. I was very surprised. I didn't think that they were going to have such low sentences but ultimately I just don't care. I'm just happy that it's done. They're going to serve their time. They're going to pay their fine and we can just move on from this. We'll see in. Moore's ZANU extensive experience with studying to law subjects in College. Back in two thousand six. It wasn't looking good for these guys. I think this plea is the best case scenario for them now. The varney plead guilty to one of the counts each so the whole entire bundle but I think it is what Morgan said. It's the best thing for everybody in the especially the kids I mean. Did we see those fight is once again to remember the rowing fight? Don't remind us of the photos. They are a crime from seeing those photos. What's crazy to me is that there have been people who have had similar if not less offensive offenses. And there's I remember. There is a mom who received a five year sentence for falsifying her son's address so he can get into a better school district and she got five years locked up for that and these two. They're going to be doing a couple of months and they're gonNA have maybe two hundred hours of community service and You know luckily for them. They're not doing the forty or sixty years whatever originally was supposed to be But yeah very interesting to see that they actually said we're guilty doesn't surprise me at old. We have a bit of a flawed system. I feel like in this instance with them. I do think that bit and everything has sort of affected things and by the way. I think that it's Laurie. Serving two months in Montana supposed to survive. I don't think either of them are going to serve their sentences to full-term there's no way there's there's a possibility that they could get house arrest because of the Kovin situation. There's a possibility they won't actually do the time in jail. I don't know but the question is will. Laurie repair her image. I feel like all she's got to do is go on dancing with the stars and everyone's just going to forget about all of this because that is celebrity image. Rehab Redemption story works really well when someone has done something bad and committed a crime and then they lock all of a sudden. It's going to be great. Pr TO IN. A COUPLE OF YEARS DOWN THE TRACK. Bring them back up again. Audit will that to happen. It can't happen like that. I completely disagree with that. This is all this business on in its image. It's always about how you can. People are forgiving and I think that Lori is dead than going to be forgiven by the public. I think people again are so over this or this to be a two month sentence after all of the HOOPLA and all of the research we've done over what Aaron said sixty fifty one hundred years that they were gonNA spend vibrators. She's GonNa do one episode of dancing with the stars like Aaron said and she's going to do one lifetime movie and then I'm going to see her shouldn't say hi and everyone's GonNa keep it big put on walk. That's how it works. Welcome to the world of white privilege. Hollywood

A Chat with Lindsay Peoples Wagner, Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue

"We are very excited to have Lindsey People's Wagner. Lindsay is the editor in chief of Teen Vogue magazine and is the youngest editor in chief of Conde NAST publication. She's also the only black female editor in chief of A. Us Fashion magazine as a career journalist. Her work focuses on the intersecting world of style identity culture and politics. Lindsey thank you so much for coming on today. We're really excited for the conversation. Thank you so much for having me. So let's start out with our basic question. Skim your resume Flores. I started religious interning into. That's really how I figured out that I even want to publications and teen. Vogue was my first actual internship and my first big internship in general so after doing that in college. It became the first job that I actually got out of college and I worked in the closet basically schlepping and doing running errands. And all the not fun things that wasn't on the hills of for a couple of years and then from there. I went to style DOT COM which merged into vogue dot com eventually. And that's when I really wanted to get into more writing and more of the storytelling and more of the behind the scenes of like how all of these pieces come together to really make a feature. And then I went to New York magazine in the cut for awhile and I mean that was an incredible experience for me because I was able to be at a place where I think you learn so much about your own story and how that plays into everything that you write or edit or that you wanna cover and I think there I was able to really flex love the muscles of things that I wanted to do from styling and producing shoots to working on you know really long. Form pieces like black and fashion. It's been over a year and a half. I would say of being editor-in-chief Teen Vogue so it's been a fun full circle moment to be back now as editor in chief and I think we've really leaned into a lot of the core things what I loved about Teen Vogue but in a modern in fresh and inclusive way that I always wanted to make it. I always love talking to people in fashion when they talk about like. Oh I started off in the closet and it's this thing and for people that aren't in fashion. It's like way that it's an actual real job that requires a lot of organization. And it's how a lot of people start off but I always think that's such a funny face when people see you working in fashion in TV or films. It looks very glamorous and it looks like you're just around town shopping and everything's breezy and their champagne and it's not that at all for those of us who've actually had to work our way out so I think that's an interesting point because you actually have to do a lot to figure out even what it takes to make a magazine come together. What something that people can't find on your linked in or that is in Google about you that you want people to know the only thing you can't really do but it's not like a secret and it's something that I have on my social media how much I love to cook. I grew up in a family. We always had to be at the dinner table. There was no fast food allowed. I find it really just calming and reminds me of home and so that's something that I really enjoy and I think it's interesting because in fashion people tend to not want to talk about food or not food to be the center of any conversation. Because there's always these very stupid pressures and anxieties around body image and how much you consume and even in this time. I think it's been really disappointing for me to see so. Many people in the industry say really insensitive things about you know not wanting to gain weight during this time and it's incredibly insensitive but also just ignorant and I want the industry to move to this place of inclusivity in a real way. I'm so grateful for this body that I have and I'm grateful to be able to make food and to be able to. You know to live this life. And that's really all that I think. Cooking food conversation should be about. Yeah and it's it's especially a very relevant conversation right now as you said thinking about so. Many people that are experiencing unexpected turns poor health that thinking about food and how we think about our bodies and being thankful for it in this moment his very different on that note about covert. You are leading a team a team that is part of Conde nast which is like any major media company has had its its ups and downs. How are you leading through this with the balance of trying to keep people calm? I know from leading our own team that it's not like we have a magic eight ball of being able to see when this ends. How have you handled this environment from a leadership perspective to be honest? I think it's been really tough because it is so open ended. We don't really know what is going to happen in the future and you can make all these plans for life and then you know life happens and I think for me. It's been a lot of just having those conversations with people you know. Do you need a mental health? Day Do you not. Do you feel like you can't do this today. And that's fine and now take on that you know today if I can and I'll figure out a way that we can move forward. That feels good for everyone. I've been having so many conversations of bandwidth and what people can just emotionally and mentally handle right now as journalists in like someone who's always overly ambitious. There's so many ideas and things that I always WANNA do. But I've been very transparent with my staff of like this is a great idea and I think this would be cool but I'm not trying to pressure anyone in ad anyone's workload of this is a cool idea but like I can't emotionally handle anymore worker. I can't spend any more time on this right now and I think we all have to be understanding of that and you know so many people have had family issues and I had a family member pass away from Kovin so I'm so sorry I'm very sorry for your family. No it's okay. It's just it's emotional roller coaster for everyone. I think just trying to be understanding in that. Is You know an empathy is everything. Yeah speaking about empathy is studies and more information is coming out that shows Cova nineteen infecting and killing people of color at a disproportionately higher rates. I think that there's been a lot of conversation about how this can reveal inequalities and disparities in our society that sometimes people don't spend time or don't WanNa think about as someone that has written about the overlap between culture and politics. I'm just curious to talk about how you're thinking through this moment and the type of data that we're seeing it just sucks to see that people of color going to be affected even more in the situation because you know people have covered just disproportionately don't have access to healthcare. And I mean really what this. Kobe situation is put so much light on his problems with class. And how we treat certain people in how we give you know other people privileges and I think it's it's been really upsetting to see a lot of popular influencers. You know be able to get tested really quickly and be able to have access to be able to get any medical advice and to be able to just hop in their RV and go to some house and be able to just escape and this is a reality for a lot of people have colored. They can't get the help that they need and I think for us. It's a constant conversation that we're having of. How do we amplify the voices of people of Color this because it just spans to so many things like even in my hometown from Wisconsin and the Wisconsin primary was like Sony? My family members were saying people of color are going to be directly affected by this election. And they're not being you know comforted in this at all. The polling stations are actually safe. And there's no hand sanitizer. They're they're not able to wash their hands in the bathroom. But they're told you know you need to just wait in line here for three hours. It affects so many different things and I think the economics of it and you know this class war is just. It's crazy and I think the it makes me really upset because it's going to have such a lasting effects on people colors communities that won't even have the resources to make it better and I mean we're going to continue to figure out ways that we can help in ways that we can make those communities feel like we're at least here for them because there are a lot of people in situations that won't be able to get out of this speaking of how you grow up. You grew up in Wisconsin. Tell us a little bit about what your family was like. Oh I have a really loving family. it's weird interview. My family is the best people planet. And it's just been really hard for us but I think that I grew up in a family just has really strong faith and I think that that has been a big point in my life. My Dad is a pastor. My husband's status pastor. And I think in these times you really kind of on your faith to help you through this and so I'm regardless of you know nervous being sick and this just being a really crazy time. I think that's really stuck with me and I think that the older I've gotten the more that I'm grateful of the ways that my parents have grounded me. I'm not any of these things that people may think in fashion. That isn't really my identity and my identity is really who I am in the integrity that I have as a human being. I think that you know we are trying to just walk through this with as much grace in humility that. They've instilled in me that I can. Do you think your family than like looking back on who? You are would be surprised at what you've become today. Yes no I mean. I was always very opinionated on a lot of artistic things like my mom always jokes you know they like allowed my sister and I to pick out colors for our bedroom and my sisters chose really you know. Pale floral wallpaper very basic in my opinion and I was like this. None of this will work for me. I need a custom color and my mom was like. Who Do you think you are? Yeah I can see that being such a pain in the ass for a mob like just pick a fucking color. Your that was me. She saved like all of my art projects and she was. She's that mom and so she always has like we were really upset when the glitter spill and we. We always had to have talks with you about things. Aren't going to go your way and I mean I was always definitely into creative. Things of his incenting Lessons Piano Violin. I like to dry like those. Are I love to do all of those things but I think it? The fashion stuff didn't come 'til lot later for sure just because the nature of growing out in the Midwest. You don't know anybody really who works at a publication and so it took a while for me to figure out really how. I wanted to use all those creative

"kovin" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

"To stay with us. That means Philip Rucker and Jill Kovin, Phil. What are Republicans saying privately that was an impressive showing publicly yet, Bryan? There's a lot more anxiety privately over the last few days, my colleagues, and I have been talking to Republican lawmakers and other Republicans in the Trump orbit allies if the president who are growing increasingly concerned with where these investigations are headed they were alarmed by some of the developments last week. The fact that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had nineteen different meetings with the Muller team. And investigators some of the details that emerged in notes filings last Friday, also spooked some of these Trump allies, and there's a sense that this investigation is moving into more perilous territory for the president than they had been led to believe in that they're comfortable with. That doesn't mean that they're going to come out publicly tomorrow and give a speech distancing themselves from the president. But they're privately concerned.

"To stay with us. That means Philip Rucker and Jill Kovin, Phil. What are Republicans saying privately that was an impressive showing publicly yet, Bryan? There's a lot more anxiety privately over the last few days, my colleagues, and I have been talking to Republican lawmakers and other Republicans in the Trump orbit allies if the president who are growing increasingly concerned with. Where these investigations are headed. They were alarmed by some of the developments last week. The fact that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had nineteen different meetings with the Muller team. And investigators some of the details that emerged in notes filings last Friday, also spooked some of these Trump allies, and there's a sense that this investigation is moving into more perilous territory for the president than they had been led to believe in that they're comfortable with that doesn't mean that they're going to come out publicly tomorrow and give a speech distancing themselves from the president. But they're privately concerned. They don't think the White House it's prepared to deal with all of this from a political standpoint, let alone legal standpoint in terms of defending the president.

"This is weekend. Addition from NPR news. I'm Lulu Garcia Varo, many journalists claimed the title war correspondent, but few have really deserved it as much as Marie Colin. Kovin was a journalism legend a fearless American reporter who wrote for the British paper the Sunday Times she was unmistakable in war zones. She sported ni- patch to cover up an I injured in a grenade attack while she was reporting during the Sri Lankan, civil war. And she was always far ahead of the pack. Kovin didn't just cover conflicts. She lived them writing vivid dispatches from places few western correspondents would go Chechnya east team more, and so many other places and ultimately Syria. This is one of her last interviews given to the BBC while she was in the besieged town of homes in two thousand twelve I watched a little baby died today. Absolately horrific just a two year old then hit they stripped and foundation Trump no had gone into the left chest. And he the doctor just said. I can't do anything is a little tummy just kept heating until he died shortly. After this interview on February twenty seconds. She would be killed along with French photographer Remi automatic after the Syrian government Sheldon media center, where they were staying her story is being told in new book by Lindsey Hilsum herself, an award-winning journalist for the British channel four news and recall, wtn's, friend. It's called extremists the life and death of war. Correspondent Marie Colvin. Lindsey hilsum. Welcome to the program. It's great to be here leading you can hear in that interview in homes. Marie cared. So much about the subject. She would report on we'll get to her death in a moment. But this book is about her life. She grew up in a small town Strabane on Long Island with the middle class sort of stable family. A lot of the book is based on our own journals are her observations as a teenager, then a college student. She was driven and curious and passionate, even then she absolutely was in one of the joys of writing. This book is Murray's dire is one of the things. I I enjoyed with her. Her family when incredibly generous, and I went down into the basement, and there are all these papers. And I found this little white plastic covered. Child's dial which was locked with one of those tiny meetings. And I couldn't find the key. And so I had to slice it open. And there it was MAURICE first Darrien when she says, she writes, very simply to church, wore mini, the mother and the father. No like. And I go I think I can see the woman I knew in that naughty girl. And then when she was at Yale. She did a class with John Hersi famous American Janice wrote, a great book Hiroshima, and when she came out of that class, she said to her her best friend. That's what I want to do. I want to tell the really big stories by telling them through the stories of the individuals, the victims of war, and that was what she she sets out to do. Yeah. She was fearless. But she saw humanity everywhere as you say, but what really made a famous was her unrelenting quest to tell the stories of the people in hard to get places who were sort of the victims were or going through something terrible. She experienced their lives and didn't keep that detachment that American journalism is so fond of that's right. And in that way, journalism was quite controversial that she didn't go in in the way that some journalists have the right or left ju ju paint by numbers journalism. You know, find the facts that fit the story she was actually remarkably unideological, but she certainly had a big thing for the underdog whether the underdog with the children and the women being bombed in the shelter or the conscripts who didn't really know what they were fighting for or people who had rebelled against the government's. So she certainly identified some would say over identified with them. And I think that what distinguished her her writing. And her journalism was that she she went. In further, and she stayed longer. And that meant that she got those stories that other people didn't get. Yeah. I knew Marie in the field. The last time I saw her we were in Tripoli, and we were climbing into a compound owned by one of Kadhafi's sons, and she led the charge. She was inexhaustible. We were actually going to give up and try the next morning. And she was basically like forget that accepted. I think it was more pointed expletive, and she wrangled someone to bring a ladder. And we were the first group in see this sort of crazy paranoid world of underground bunkers and lavish living that is the last time. I saw her. She was an icon of this kind of journalism. I think that's such a great memory to have of her because that was exactly what she was like just like come on. Let's go for it. And it came at a cost though, this part is quite resonant to me you describe the parties in the and the friends that she had and how much she was loved. But there was the post traumatic stress disorder the things that come along with covering conflicts the personal toll it takes. Absolutely. And when she first lost the size in her eye. This amazing piece which I quit what she wrote. I didn't have a punishment for very good about how she now have different codes vision of has south no longer marriage with who she thought she wasn't who she might now be. And then somebody else will we to why are you worrying about that? And she was like, well, you know, I was concentrating on the outside because it was something dark within two to look at and she had nightmares and particularly after anchor nightmare which would come back again. And again, which was you would wake up just before the moment where she was shot and those nightmares just wouldn't wouldn't go away. And she drank too much as many journalists do and in the end, she crash at one point in the book, you write Maria was easy to love and hard to help. Do you think she should have quit? Look, I I should have should've should've how could you say that to Marie unit. Marie. I think. She defined herself by the work that she did. And she believed in the what she did. She was committed to being an eyewitness to war and telling the story of people who go through it. I mean, the book is called in extremist because of something she write she wrote. It's always seemed to me that wash. I write about his humanity in extremists pushed to the uninsurable. And that it is important to tell people what really happens in wars. But of course, she lived her own life in extremists to he had a very turbulent personal life. And so I can't really say what she should have done. I've just come to understand something of who. She was Marie was killed by brutal despotic regime that is still in place, but that regime with Mary's death wanted to send a message that sort of shining. A light would not be tolerated. I couldn't help. But think while I was reading this book about this moment where journalists in this country are being called the enemy of the p. People by the president of the United States. What do you think she would make of this moment for journalists right now? I think she'd be absolutely horrified. She grew up in an American culture off, the the Pentagon papers and Watergate, and so on where journalists was seen as a noble profession and telling stories of what was going on in the world. And that was a tradition which she came from. What do you want people to take away from her life story? I mean, this is a moment where for news gets fewer and fewer pages and airtime, and where people are looking much more inwards to the conflicts within their own country. What I hope that they will take away the importance of being the unstandable what's going on and reporting these stories, and if knowing that even if it's not obvious what should be done e miss never get to a situation where they can turn round and say, oh, we didn't know what was. Going on. Yes. You knew because we told you Marie told you the other thing is that if a life, which was extraordinary and a woman he was extraordinarily, and yes, she was traumatized, and yes, she died in this way. But boy was she a character. And I guess, you know, if I want to be sentimental America should be proud that it produced a journalist and a women like Marie Colvin. Indeed, Lindsey Hilsum is an award winning journalist herself with channel four news. And her book is in extremis. Thank you so much. It's my pleasure. Really? And tomorrow.

"Get in a turning our attention back, towards the Texans Aaron Kovin who is the newest Texan in that secondary air Wilson had a good article today on the chronicle talking to to Aaron Kovin and one of, the storyline battles that I'm interested in for the Houston Texans during, training camp is how often do we see Aaron. Cove play outside we know he is a great nickel, corner we know, he's outstanding in the. Slot one of the best. In the NFL and he had outstanding grades of defending receivers in the slot, but how the Texans during the. Three four and. You only have two corners. On the field who are. Going to be the two corners. That are out there between Jonathan Joseph between Aaron cove. Between Kevin Johnson you can only put two of those. Guys out there in Three four some of the quotes from. Kovin today from this article from Aaron, Wilson. They talked about him playing more on the outside and Colvin's a question it's kind of past talking for me right now it's something burning inside me I can't really, explain every day I wake up every day up this year Said, truthfully I did wanna play, some outside it's about winning my one on ones it gives myself, the best chance to make a play, of course last year he was behind AJ boy a. Jacksonville was behind Jalen Ramsey who was turned into one of the best corners in the league. Right so you know. We we've wondered that question. And, and that's one of the big story lines I'm looking forward to especially when we get into, the preseason how much outside corner are we seeing Aaron Kovin play, and at the very least it seems like. He has the desire to play on the outside I would love to I, love to see that honestly I would. Love to see Aaron Coleman come out and be not just a great slot corner but also come out. And be guy that in your base defense you could. Trust to be an outside corner and for the guy on the other side of him to be Kevin Johnson John, Joseph. Is getting a little older I'd like to see him playing a little. Bit like you're snaps and kind of start phasing him out and then. You get younger in Kovin and Kevin Johnson but. If you're telling me right. Now the guys that are going to be starting just based off of name Based off of based off of. Who they are the starters are going to be Kevin. Johnson and, Jonathan Joseph just because of where Johnson. Was drafted Jonathan Joseph has been with the team forever you know what he is he's still a. Good. Corner than they've, been, with the team for for a while now and Coleman yeah they just signed him but he's, still coming in new but I could, see something where it's kind of like some that we? Talked about with KiKi Hugh t where he kind of you know becomes more a part of. The game plan as. The weeks go by this. Could, be something with Aaron Coleman where you start seeing more and more outside and then maybe you, could see a transition where it's colon and Joseph or Coleman and, Johnson whatever it is that play more outside. In the based events and you see a more different sense where they kind, of rotate all three of those guys. In and out coming up next we take a look at ESPN's NFL's best under twenty five starting lineup. We also point out some of the problems we have. With it also where do the.
