Sport Unites for Social Media Boycott Against Online Abuse
"Social media is spreading. Now the sport's governing body is joining all the players and clubs who have decided to stay off these platforms to protest online racist abuse. English cricket and rugby clubs of sign on so of the organizers of the Wimbledon tennis. Turk it tournament. Paul Phyllis in racist abuse online is not new, but it gives a little more context about why they're making this move right now. Yes. So, basically, I think what's happened Is that because of Cove it on because basically, I mean, look football players they used to being shouted out on the touchline zones on the Saturday afternoon that hasn't happened for a long time on a lot of the abuse has basically moved online. There's been a massive increase and a lot of it sadly. Is racist on day. Players have just had enough. And I think that what began, as you say, is the kind of football clubs doing it has now been joined by rugby and cricket. Andre Formula One have been talking about doing it, and I think what we're basically seeing here is the frustration of social media companies. Just don't move fast enough on things that impact people's lives when it comes to online abuse, and and the you know, I was listening to Terry on Rio's a former French international football player today, saying, Look when it's issues of copyright, or things that are gonna cost people money. They move fast when it's not about money, but how it impacts on people's lives and reputations. They take too long, and I think that's the thing they want. Social Media companies toe act a little bit more like a newsroom and react to things quickly, rather than Allowing things that just drag on until this such a powerful backlash that something gets done. And, you know, people have had enough. And I think you know the UK has tried to do with racism on the terraces. While the terrorists is our empty they're trying to do with racism online.

White House moves up vaccine supply timeline, says U.S. will have enough for every adult by end of May
"Good news this week in the race to end this pandemic, this country will have enough vaccine supply of state again for every adult in America. By the end of May. By the end of May. That's progress. Important progress. This comes as the governors of Texas and Mississippi have lifted all pandemic restrictions in their states and new variants of the Corona virus are popping up around the world and in the U. S. There's a lot to talk about that we're setting aside the next hour to answer your questions about the vaccination effort. Joining me now is Dr Lena when she's a visiting professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health. She's also an ER physician and the former Baltimore City health commissioner. Dr Wen. It's always great to have you To speak with you. Also with us Angela Rasmussen. She's a virologist, and she's also an affiliate at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health, Science and Security. Angela Welcome back. Thanks for having me back then a doctor win enough vaccine for every adult in America by the end of May. That's an aggressive timeline. Do you think we can get there? Well, I think we should break this down into three categories. In terms of where are the barriers to vaccination to having people actually getting the vaccine and their arms. The first barrier is that of supply. The second is that of distribution. The third. Is that a vaccine hesitant or acceptance of the vaccine. What President Biden announced is that by the end of name, we're going to solve the supply issue. That is we'll have enough supplies. You were saying for every adult American to have the vaccine. That doesn't mean that by the end of May, everyone is going to be able to get the vaccine because then once we get the supply, we need to move into addressing these other issues of administration and also of addressing hesitancy. So do I think that will get the supply? I certainly hope so. And so far, President Biden has been very good about not over promising. So I expect that this is going to be the case, which is fantastic, because supply right now is the limiting factor. Um I do think that a lot more work lies ahead of us in terms of actually getting that last mile logistics of getting the vaccines into arms and then also overcoming vaccine hesitancy. Available. Vaccines do not equal shots in arms. As you say, Doctor win, and the previous timeline was to have every American adult vaccinated by the end of July. Angela's we're seeing more variants. Developed. How urgent is it that we really ramp up vaccination? Well, it's very urgent on So given that people will be out there moving around more, the variants are becoming more and more prevalent. It's really, really crucial that we get vaccines into arms as quickly as possible. One thing people should really keep in mind and echoing what Dr Wen just said. Is that vaccines don't save lives. Vaccination saves lives, So we really, really need to buckle down and focus on making sure that we can get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. Well, we got this

Los Angeles County could receive a quarter of Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses headed to California
"Federal approval of that single shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine likely tomorrow, and with Governor Gavin Newsom, saying California could get us many is 380,000 doses as soon as next week. You have to wonder how much will come to L. A County, the state's largest county. So we asked L. A county public health director Barbara for rare when we spoke with her earlier this evening, she says L. A county is a quarter of California's population sell. The county will likely get a quarter of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine doses. There's More complex algorithm that the state uses to determine what the doses are for the county. Um, but we're assuming that you know, given given that it's you know, close to 400,000 doses that you know we should get. You know, we could get anywhere between 80 and 100,000 doses. But Ferrer says she will welcome whatever L a county gets. It couldn't come at a better time because we're expanding eligibility next week for a lot of workers who are desperate to get vaccinated. L. A County public health director, Barbara for rare. What she's talking about is the statewide move next week to add teachers, more food and AG workers and more emergency workers to the list of Californians eligible for the vaccine. Not enough available yet to get shots to everybody. So you'll get an appointment. But the shot itself might be weeks away. Still bring a valid I D when you get the shot and proof that you live or work in L, a county. Ah work badge or a pay stub with an address on it will do.

"Of Metal recently came out on Amazon Prime and the movie follows a heavy metal drummer played by Reza Med, who begins to lose his hearing. Your hearing is deteriorating rapidly. We'll come back to Lin Liu. We just keep going. Okay? No blue. No play tomorrow. See what it's like. Okay, I'm gonna be like a click track. You complain to me. Don't understand your fast responsibility. Something here. I can't hear you. You understand me? I can't adapt. Jacqueline. What did you think of the sound of metal? While the sound of metal is another film that was part of this sort of strange festival season of last year, and I actually got to catch it at the Toronto Film Festival two years ago, I guess now, but now it's coming out on Amazon. It started drizzling mezuzah drummer losing his hearing, and what's really interesting about this film is this is not somebody who had this Big aspirations in life. This was a man who just wanted to be a drummer in a band and this disability coming upon him late in life really changes everything around him. It changes his relationships. It changes what he may be wants to do with the rest of his life and In the center of it. What's interesting is his willfulness. I will say for how he doesn't want to face the reality of what is happening to him and how he looks to sort of bargain and beg his way into a different situation. And it isn't until he comes across an advisor at a camp that he goes to learn American sign language and sort of Learned how to live this new existence with a disability where he really sort of embrace is who he is. It has some really interesting sound cues in it. I think it is my Hands down pick for best sound this year because of the way they use it in the storytelling just sort of tell the story of his diminished hearing and also essentially how he's listening in and out of his life and Really incredible performance by Rizal Med. Also Olivia Cooke and Paul racy who's actually a coda. He is the child of death or hearing impaired parents. And he knows American sign language a character actor from several years and he is getting a ton of praise for his performance in this one, which I'm so happy to see. Sort of like a journeymen have his His moment. It harkens me back to sort of Robert Forester with Jackie Brown and sort of that, So it's a really incredible thing. And what are we hearing about resume that's performance. Yeah, and risen mad. They're definitely talking best actor for him. He recently came out on the cover. I think it was ah, variety of Hollywood reporter where he was saying, You know, he's had to play these roles that he didn't want to do any more, He said. I'm done playing terrorists. I want Have an opportunity to have three dimensional characters and so to see a South Asian British person played this role where that is a part of the character but all of the character and seeing him Really struggle with the realities of this disability is really incredible and visceral is one of the best male performances of this year. It is just a shame that it goes. It begins so many performances that are going to be hard to be most particularly Chadwick Boseman and lead actor performance of Murray's black bottom, but I think he's going to give him a run for his money, even in a posthumous awards campaign.

that's why I listen to talk he's fair smart he's passionate about journalism real journalism and he's why I donate to KPCC because democracy needs to be heard this is science Friday hi my reply to a bit later in the hour we'll have an update on the corona virus outbreak and talk about how geneticists are helping to monitor its spread but first this week doctors started the first human trial of a gene therapy involving the gene editing technique CRISPR hoping to combat a form of congenital blindness it's a tell more about that and other selected short subjects in science is our own Charles Bergquist welcome back Charles let's let's talk about this yes Sir this week researchers announced they've started a clinical trial of a treatment that would used the CRISPR gene editing technique on live cells inside a human eye they're trying to treat one variant of a condition called Leber congenital amaurosis it's a retinal disorder that causes severe visual impairment from from engine infancy basically and so they're injecting this treatment under the retina inside a living person die and NYU's Christopher so standard gene therapy you try and sort of swap out the gene bye bye ferrying a replacement gene inside the cell the the messed up gene in this case is too big to fit in that that viral payload so instead what they're trying to do is use the CRISPR technique just to sort of delete the problem section of the gene in the hopes that it will allow the the cells to function normally so well what kind of time frame are we talking about so this is phase one to trial their testing both safety and efficacy here in animal tests they were able to corrupt correct about half of the cells in the eye it'll be a few weeks to maybe a month before they find out whether it this particular patient has any benefit from them from treatment let's move on to the continuing bad news about climate change it is it did the outlook for the world's sandy beach is disappearing yes so this is a study that was published this week in the journal nature climb the change and the researchers used to satellite images collected over a period of thirty years to track the progression of sandy beaches around the world and then they use that data to simulate what might happen with global warming and rising sea levels more erosion bigger storms things like that and they found that across the world we're losing sand on those we are losing a lot of sand I they they're estimating that maybe thirty years or so erosion will have destroyed over twenty two thousand miles of sandy coastlines around the world different places around the world were hit differently and that their simulations Australia was one of the worst the United States would probably lose thousands of miles of beach according to the study man of course is there anything you can do about it you know it's a good news bad news situation here the the the bad news is that they're saying that this is a conservative estimate they think it could possibly be worse than they are predicting but they also say that if greenhouse gas emissions are moderately control debate and might be able to prevent some of this affecting one let's look up into space I know there's a story that you really were talking about earlier this weekend at a satellite servicing mission I know this is just such a geeky fun story so space junk is a big deal right and when you've got an aging broken satellite you've basically got two options of what to do with it you can either do your bit it as they say let it burn up in the atmosphere or you can push it up into this graveyard or button let it ride up there last week Northrup Grummond decided to try something else and they launched a satellite that basically came up to a aging communications satellite called Intelsat nine oh one and latched onto it and now it's going to be serving as a backup propulsion system for that satellite it means that like a tow truck sort of thing yet tugboat maybe it's already ordered how would that work so you know that the satellite wasn't designed to be docked with so this the new servicing satellite kind of came up but find it and inserted itself into the the thruster nozzle basically of the of the old satellite and grabbed on there and is there you know using the motors and thrusters from the new satellite to push the other one around like a tug boat so it's going to stay with it while it's in and the new orbit yes so the contract is for five years so it will ferry this other satellite around for five years and then the plan is that overall shove it up into the graveyard orbit then but the cool part is that the servicing satellite command detach find another satellite to help out and they're saying that they can keep using it for another fifteen years or so now there's a whole new business success that's right in a satellite repair center here I'm in no this space news that fight you just released yesterday right a new name for the Mars rover twenty twenty right you know it had been going by the name Mars twenty twenty rover which is sort of doll but they officially now if named perseverance it was suggested by Alex Mather a seventh grade student from Virginia you know there was a contest right yeah I was a nationwide contest and people send in lots of names there were some that were more creative than others but they went with persevere that's a good thing yeah it's you know they they like these multiple syllable names too and and what is it what's its mission what's when's it yeah going up it's going to do so it's supposed to be launching late July early August of this year arrive in Mars next February and once it's on Mars the Rovers gonna be looking for what they call bio signatures signs that maybe once upon a time there were was living material in some of these rocks they're looking and specifically in areas where they think there might have been water and decent conditions for for life and it will be able to collect samples actually chipped off pieces it will have a container that it can if it finds something super cool that it wants to save for later it can still wet and you know they're talking about maybe a some kind of sample return mission down the road we'll see how that be great can actually just to go there and find the this rover can pick up the stuff finally there there there's news about a New Zealand parrot that can understand the probability right so this is a paper that was published this week in the journal nature communications and researchers in New Zealand we're working with the kind of parent called a kia and they say that this bird seems to have an ability to understand probability which is something that normally you would only tribute to humans or other great apes what they did is they they first they trained the parrot that if it got a black poker chip that was good it could trade that for a treat and then they showed it to jars mixed with filled with a mix of orange and black chips and the researcher would reach into the jar and fiddle around and pull out a chip from each jar and offer closed hands to the parent the parent got to choose which hand is more likely to have the treat chip in it and they found that the parent would consistently pack V. more probable hands to I receive the treat why Hannity and know what to choose so I they they tried a couple different things in your mixing that the the the numbers of different the different color chips within the jar did the bland said they're they're fairly confident that it's not looking at just that that jar has more black chips it's actually somehow being able to calculate I've got a better chance of getting my treat chip out of the jar on this if there's a wide choice you know what the preference of the cells that scientists another yeah another fun part of the study was they had some researchers who were biased and they they made a big show of digging around in the jar looking though I'm going to find the right ship here and the the parents learned that you know if Bob picks it I'm more likely to get the treatment so he would go with them so they're they're saying it's a sign that there's more complicated things going on in their you know not bird per hunter thank you Charles Charles Bergquist science Friday's director now

Kansas state news in which Tom welcome back Bryan Hey thanks for having me where are these people what the private was getting the water from a wise and is in it getting test so it really depends on and this is one of the complicating factors it depends on where you are so that they're getting their water from underground aquifers and there are a couple of big ones here in the state and and they pump it up in their private well and in none of the kids alone in this there's there's just not really regulations requiring that to be tested it's just one of those things where it's left up to the individual owners and and a lot of people like it that way honestly yeah and and and the because I know a lot of people with wells and it's up to you to test your own water I mean these days there's no way to set standards stand for what happens are to help people pay for the testing because it because I know cost a hundred Bucks or more to do that yeah there there have been talk in the past about doing that in some municipalities and counties have have provided some of the help in the past but over time some of that budget money just went away and and and it just it wasn't enough of a priority and so you should certainly there are mechanisms to do that and and for public water system so if you you live in a larger city than that that gets tested all the time and so there there are federal standards declared out there for what makes safe drinking water this is some nasty stuff and well water it could couldn't there be Nick there could be so one of the big issues in Kansas is nitrates and and that is as a result of some of the fertilizer that gets put out on the agriculture fields and depending on how high the the groundwater is in your area that nitrates can leach pretty easily into groundwater where you're you're pumping your water from our are there some researchers that recommending that the state state required testing of private wells so it gets a little complicated when it comes to that there are some public health researchers who who spent a year they were and they talked to a lot of stakeholders and they came up with these eighteen recommendations they didn't go as far as saying that it should be required but they did come up with a bunch of other ideas including one of the big problems here is is letting residents know when their water might be contaminated we we've got a good idea of where some of these hot spots are or what maybe you you live close to a underground gas storage tank but it's hard to make that connection between we know that there's an underground gas storage tank there and letting nearby homeowners know well maybe you should be checking your well you know more frequently than you are yeah it's just it's just simple telling people to do this would go a long way yeah I mean it's one of those things see if the recommendations I and then I talked a lot of people they know that they should tester well on an annual basis but you know it's like changing the oil in your car getting your air conditioning unit checked out it's it's you just could you know you should do it doesn't mean you do it been there done that Brian thank you for taking time to be with us today Brian Grimmett energy and environment reporter with a K.

is the frame I'm John horn and happy Friday to all digital video technology is advancing fast and that gives Hollywood a lot more creative freedom in storytelling like the uncanny resurrection of deceased actor Peter Cushing in Star Wars rogue one it's no surprise there are some frightening implications that come with your early accurate digital simulations or manipulations of real people and the union that represents actors is raising the alarm for how damaging deep fake video technology can be to its members Eric garner cover this topic for The Hollywood Reporter where he's a senior editor for law and public policy and he began explaining how even though Hollywood has been developing visual effects for years deep fake technology comes with some unique challenges what makes it different is the ability to really use technology learn the lines between falseness in reality in such a hyper focused way that people really can't tell the difference that's what we mean by deep lakes these are essentially video versions of Photoshop and they've been used for political use there's a famous deep fake video of Nancy Pelosi one of Hillary Clinton so how are deep fakes affecting Hollywood right now well in several ways one is in a pornographic route where you know on a lot of porn sites you might see a celebrity doing things that she never did in real life and this is a concern to you know many actresses you see this is a violation of their privacy we also see deep take technology being incorporated in to explore the boundaries of film making where you know you might see something deceptively added in such a way that you can't really tell that it actually didn't happen so you might see a documentary made where depicts are used to showcase the point it has its pluses and minuses of good features and bad features a lot of people are concerned these days about the political round and the pornographic ground but I think everything needs to be explored there is obviously a potentially positive here's what I'm thinking save an actor like Carrie Fisher who has passed away and everybody who is a part of the Carrie Fisher team says that if there's a way to bring her back to life essentially in the latest Star Wars movie using video technology that that is okay but there are also some laws that have been proposed some in New York they're trying to get to the darker aspect of deep fake so what we're New York legislators talking about sure they want you to make the ability to control one's name imagine like yeah as a property right as opposed to just a privacy light and they will close barring thing it's like using a digital replica to create sexually explicit material they wanted to extend the protection of one like this past that and they wanted to create a registry whereby the errors of famous people could document their official control over their relatives name and image I it's a very big implied law that would really shake up things and give people the right to stop it takes as well as the ability to license everything from deep take the holograms and what is the industry's perspective on this end where do people like the leaders of the Screen Actors Guild where to their legions as fall the actors you are extremely in favor of doing such a thing they are concerned about their members privacy and and their ability to control exploitation but then there are the studios broadcaster and journalist and others who worried that you know cracking down on this sort of thing in such a board away might interfere with free speech we're talking with Eric Gardner at The Hollywood Reporter about deep fakes somebody you quote in your article a law professor at Loyola named Jennifer Roth man and she says that there's a potential problem with the idea of a sign the rights of publicity as a property right in that maybe through something like a bankruptcy that could be an asset that is claimed and that the new owner of that asset could exploit your right of publicity as if it were a transferable asset is that the radical or is that something that could actually happen one of the things that pops up is the potential that day a celebrity gets in for dad warn creditors my book to obtain for close up on that celebrity's likeness white or in a divorce a spouse my claim that the like this right Sir community property and see you get to the store things in you have all these sorts of interesting scenarios happen where someone might not be able to control their own Mike and while we haven't seen too many disputes about this so far we have seen a few actually the Goldman family they once tried to will close on okay since and like this white had they been successful they could have blocked him from registering an official count on Twitter they weren't but that was before legislators start thinking about ways to distinguish between privacy and publicity not being Crosby's ex wife trying to go to work to get a piece of his public for the rights so these sorts of issues have been popping up slowly and I would expect to see more of that especially on your legislation I'm gonna ask you an almost impossible question and that is is there any way to know whether or not something is real or a deep fake what are people supposed to do if they're looking at a Facebook video or something else and try to figure out if it's authentic you know one of the issues has been authentication we have heard a lot about the take technology there's a evolve movement to create authenticity technology to spot the fake and I suspect such technology would be really welcomes these days but for the time being we're going to see a lot of these sorts of stuff and technically there might be a instances where something actually happened and someone will claim that it's a keep sake this will just learn a reality and truth and they get all very difficult for us to appreciate what's really going on Eric Gardner is
