NYC Man Out on Bail Reform, Brutally Beats 2 Women in 'Violent, Unprovoked' Attacks Then Released Again
"We're witnessing a country that is on the brink. And instead of worrying about, I'm reading about a 23 year old punk monster coward. 23 year old piece of excrement named Daryl Johnson. Listen to this story from the New York Post. A man charged with beating a guy last year was dumped back onto the street thanks to so called bail reform, only to allegedly pummel two women on the upper west side Thursday and be freed again. Daryl Johnson left one of his random female victims show brutally beaten that she suffered a quote disfiguring laceration to her face. Law enforcement sources told the New York Post yesterday. Now this guy has more than a dozen arrests. He was hit with assault and harassment charges when he beat the man. In August of 2020, he allegedly punched his victim about the face with a closed fist multiple times, then he used his feet to kick and stomp the man. But a judge had to release him without any bail. Because none of the charges were eligible for incarceration under revamped state laws. Then, with that case, still pending. This evil monster went up to a 50 year old woman at Broadway and west 79th in Manhattan around 9 20 a.m. Thursday morning. A beat her in a violent, unprovoked attack. This woman was literally scarred for life. She has a disfiguring scar now on her face. Three minutes later, the guy assaulted another woman, a block away, police say. In that incident, he walked up to a 32 year old woman on west 80th street. Pounding her in the face. Both women, women, were taken to saint Luke's hospital. In court, now brace yourself. Sit down if you're standing. Manhattan prosecutors recommended that this guy be released. A request, the judge

New York School Is Segregating Students by Race
"The blaze dot com. New York, junior, high school, segregates students by race in order to undo legacy of racism. A junior high school in Manhattan is racially segregating students as part of its efforts to discuss identity and social justice issues. The New York Post reported. According to the paper, an email to parents of students at the Lower Manhattan community school, said the institution will be splitting kids into categories based on race as part of its efforts to quote undo the legacy of racism and oppression in this country, the impacts our school community. On November 23rd, 24th, so today and tomorrow 7th and 8th graders will explore the question how do our racial identities influence our experiences? In an infinity group is group formed around a shared interest. The affinity groups will categorize students by race. White students will have one group, Asians will have their own, black and Hispanic students will be combined into one group. And mixed race students will have their own category. If a student is one of those kids who has a problem with the segregation, he can join a 5th group that says they appear to be uncomfortable with the format. And before I go any further, here's a pretty obvious question. What if the kids half black and half white? What group do they go into?

Charlie Talks Reclaiming the Nation on Veterans' Day
"You look at our amazing veterans and the people serving in the military, they're from a portion of the country that gets kind of a majority of all the condemnation for whatever possible reason. I think it's super unfair. And when you go look at who's willing to go die for our nation, it's from right here. It's from this part of the world. It's from South Carolina. It's from North Carolina from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama. And there is kind of this ethos of this part of the world of service and of duty and of love of nation and country and I travel the country. We were just in Vermont and we were in Oregon and Boise. There is a continual war on the American south. And I'll let you guys sort out if you know there's problems that south has to fix, like whatever. But you're my fellow countrymen. And I think it's so wrong to say, you know what? We are now going to impose our values. And by the way, you have to go remove all of your statues, which now they remove Thomas Jefferson, who is a wonderful man, and they removed him from Virginia. I think in Richmond, Virginia. And I'm always struck in the Bible. One of my favorite things in the Bible is this kind of refrain of remember. And right before the ten commandments, many people don't remember this, is it says I am the lord your God who delivered you from Israel from captivity in Israel. There is this constant emphasis on remembrance and on not forgetting what happened before you. And when you forget your history when you forget the ties that bind you together, there might be other reasons why those monuments might be standard. They say, oh, they're there because a white supremacy, or they're there because hundreds of thousands of people from this region bled and died for a cause that they believed in. And maybe that was part of the healing process to keep our nation together. And who are you, like, smug person from Manhattan to come in and say that we have to go remove every single statue from this part of the world. You guys shouldn't put up with it quite honestly. And I think it's wrong on a variety of different levels, but it also goes towards this idea of trying to impose one's values in a different part

Is the Biden Regime Persecuting an Opposition Journalist?
"So James O'Keefe has been very effective. The New York Post has a great story on this. They say the sure looks like Biden's Department of Justice is persecuting and opposition journalist. James O'Keefe is the most effective journalist that we have on the right, whether it be VAERS database information, whether it be exposing critical race theory in our schools or people that are whistleblowing, James O'Keeffe has been a thorn in the side of the regime for quite some time. FBI and Manhattan federal prosecutors are investigating the case of Ashley Biden's diary. The president daughters said it was stolen in a burglary last year an obscure right wing website found a publishing it would at satyr pages are from about ten days before the election. Now, I'm not going to get into the alleged contents of the diary. But there's some pretty creepy stuff in this diary. Let me just say some really weird stuff. According to all public reports, and what's interesting, again, which no one has been able to explain at all is what federal crime in the U.S. code is worthy of FBI agents going after this. So just so you understand the priorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. By the way, are we watching for that press conference with Merrick Garland right now? As soon as you hear the DOJ come out, then they say they're gonna do a press conference on a significant political matter. Say, hold on a second. What's going on here? Not so fast, my Friends. That's something that should worry a lot of people. Not the overreach of government. But this is a pattern of tyrants and autocrats, which is to silence political dissidents. It's nothing new. It's the habit of the tyrant to want to suffocate opposing ideas, especially journalists. And James O'Keefe is the most effective among them. James O'Keefe went after governor Murphy and exposed his regime for what he was doing in New Jersey and I think largely tightened the New Jersey governor's race. James O'Keeffe has been relentless, and he has been effective. And because of that, he's at the top list of the Federal Bureau of Investigation executing, a search warrant against

American Airlines Cancels More Than 1,500 Flights Since Friday Amid Staffing Issues, Weather
"American Airlines canceled over 1500 flights over the Halloween weekend blaming weather woes, wink wink and staffing issues. I always love it when these airlines blame weather for staffing problems, and then the people who live in the communities where the weather is, they will run that bad here. That reminds me of the time that Hillary fainted in Lower Manhattan remember when she popped out of her shoe and they threw her in a van and wouldn't take her to the hospital when she was running for president. Hi, I'm glad she's well. But she had a bad morning and I was in New York City just about a mile away. And the mainstream media rushed to her defense. They said, oh, it was so it was so hot. Oh, it was hot. She had heat exhaustion. It was this cool crisp, shattering morning in New York. I was there. It wasn't hot. But the mainstream media figures, you know, the beast figures well, if we lie, people aren't gonna be around. They don't know. They're not there. We'll tell them it's hot. So that's a little bit like Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, canceling all these flights. Oh, it's windy in Dallas. They got some wind conditions. In Dallas Fort Worth, I got a news flash. It's windy a lot at Dow in Dallas Fort Worth. They in canceling 1500

Tell us a little bit about your biography for people are just tuning in because I want people to know you who you are. I came out of a blue collar working class background in canarsie Brooklyn. My father, merchant seaman Chester for 55 years and my mother, Francesca raised both myself and my two sisters who are directly involved in my campaign to become mayor. But if we look at it, my father when he would return from being offshore for 8 months of the year, we would go down in the 1960s to an area called the boundary. Right now in Manhattan, you would have to take a reverse mortgage just to get parking space down there. Never mind living space. But back then it was where auditions and the flop houses were. What's called the derelict bombs they referred to them. And my father knew some of these men. Because he had previously been seaman with him. And he said to me, there by the grace of God go you Curtis, at any moment, this could happen to any one of us. I need to have conversation with these men. And I understood that that early age you had to be caring and compassionate. And so that's what I've done for 42 years as leader of the guardian angel. It's not just in New York City, but around the

The Lessons We Learn From Martin Niemöller
"Well, I'm talking to Kirk Cameron Kirk. I hear a distant dog. It's so beautiful. So bucolic, you're obviously not in Manhattan. Let me ask you a question. Well, you asked me about the Martin email I quote. And of course, it's in my Bonham for book, but it's everywhere. Martini Mueller was a hero, a German hero, he fought in World War one. He got into the ministry, and he was just an incredible guy. But he was slow to wake up to the Nazi threat. He thought, like a lot of people do, like, well, we can work with them or they're not so bad or something, right? Well, when he finally woke up, it was too late, and he wrote a poem and you were talking about it. It's a famous quote where he says, when they came for the trade unionists, I was not a trade unionist. So I didn't speak up. When they came for the communists, I was not a communist, so I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. When they came for the Jews, I was not a Jew. So I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. And then when they came for me, there was no one left to speak up for me. And that's the idea is that we need to stand with others. When they say, I'm going to cancel so and so. I'm going to cancel I'm going to come after so and so if we don't all stand for those people, I say it's about Mike lyndell. I tell people buy pillows you don't need. Use the code Eric. Because if we don't support this guy who's been attacked like crazy, what's going to happen when he's gone? And then they're coming for you. There will be no Mike lyndell to stand up

It's embarrassing and i knew that i would have to tell the truth on. Cast that the fucking spotify algorithm that to me. No shame in the spotify algorithm game. I did listen to a decent amount of cat power. I definitely heard it for the first time during my early years of living in manhattan as an adult. I grew up in the bay area. But my mom grew up in manhattan and in washington heights specifically and my family lived there in washington heights in the same apartment for sixty five years until december when my grandmother passed away. So coming to live in manhattan us seven years ago or so to each yacht columbia like adjacent to the neighborhood. That was like my family's neighborhood setting up shop in my studio apartment and admitting to myself that i wanted to be a writer that i wanted to try that in new york was the period in which i was introduced by the spotify algorithm to this song and it was an immediate hit with me so i loved that kismet spotify recommends a lot of songs but maybe not all of them connect in so perfect away. Were there any particular lyrics that really resonated with you. Yes i mean. I actually wondered what counts says off. I switched on pop. And i think this is probably like on the indie side of pop but to me it still counts to me. Almost every song about new york is a pop song house like an including jaws. Because it's engaging with this iconic popular symbol not only for the us but for the entire world and so you're always going to be participating a little bit even by saying the word manhattan and that kind of conversation. I think other than that. The lyrics of this song are like as non pop song as you can get in.

"How do we accelerate this? So that everybody can go as fast as we can go with safety is being you know the major guideline and I think that rethinking is really good. So what are some of the other potential collateral benefits? So things like well, you can tell me what are some of the other ways in which this kind of paralyzing rethinking. Streamlining. What are some other benefits that we might find from that? So. Thinking beyond. The some of the things that I mentioned. Can. Imagine that we do this and we have. We have the project team that pulls this off this network of. Collaborators that come together to solve this essential problem that'll be a new ecosystem. That'll be. A. Just like the the original Manhattan project led to the formation of. Many, many groups where? The people have gone through. The experience went onto create institutions companies that had some of that that spades mentality saint. You'd happen here and in effect we could end up with a true biotech silicon valley. Although it might not be located in Silicon Valley to be distributed across the country. Building the manufacturing capability across these these new types accedes. Could create. You helps of biting manufacturing, so imagine a biotech Detroit's in non coastal states. we already talked about The speed is beat up a for new vaccine applications, but the that manufacturing capability could also really radically reduce the cost of a cutting edge therapeutics. NUCLEIC ACIDS or proteins. And which would have direct impacts on access both in us, and globally to the most cutting edge therapies like like gene gene therapies at the moment have. Very high of to a million, a more price tags so. People many people do not have access to anything like that, but if we suddenly have to create the infrastructure to if if let's say the leading leading vaccine of being a a viral vector. We might end up. Having the capability to. Produce hundreds of millions of A viral vector doses very low cost. I guess that's the other big question is how much is of. This is scaling a solution once it's been found so you you come up with a good. Mixture of antigens that can induce the immune response. How do you scale it in? How do you do that fast in the wartime level? I think you do all the scaling in parallel. So this is already what Bill Gates for example has has committed to doing which is You take the key modalities. You take guests apt. Let's say the top five or six or seven. Types of scenes that you might have, and you build all that capability in parallel now I do think that.

"And it's quite hard to tell because you might. If you if you don't know that you're looking for this eighty driven infection might just look like very severe covid nineteen case so to detect that you then really need to do a deep image of profiling. Carry Out A and I think we still need to do some very basic science. On Using using patient Sarah to see whether this is actually actually happening and figure out how we take this very very early. So what has to happen for a vaccine Manhattan project to really initiate. So I think we need. A budget of the order of ten billion dollars. We need a core leadership with. The right kind of experience. And we think that What might serve this kind of product better. Leadership side is actually. A leader or of leaders who bring their strong. Technical Program Management Experience from organization like Darpa. Which of course, Fit upon or retained Los Institutional. Knowledge from the original. Manhattan project. And the reason for that is that we we think the challenge is really integrating all these different parts together, not so much necessity that the core by former expertise which some of the performers will bring. another element is a framework that. Provides the right incentives for older participants so that any company or a mega group can can jump in and. You also need a unique both stick and a carrot. A stick could be something like an old. Liger Serie Licensing Agreement that if you, if you develop some technology under this project, you have to provide it as part of the the end solution and you're not allowed to hold the project back, and then, of course there's many carrots in terms of. Investment into these companies smaller getting access to clinical development pipelines larger companies getting access to novel technology. And so on so so those are those are all elements that need to be in place, and then finally the there.

"For the Manhattan project is that. It's not unknown. What the possible adverse effects for vaccines are! And you can break them down into few clear categories. They are again very rare. Some acute reactions NFL Lexus style reactions to the Antigen, itself or Japan's using the vaccine, so those are things you can spoke very quickly already in phase one trials. The more tricky ones are. Vaccine induced. Or also immune diseases. And those other, really the the ones that people are watching for for years in in trials, but Now we have developed proteome inks technology to the point where. It should be possible to see. Signs of those types of events very early. In in patients, so instead of waiting for two years you could look at. Antibodies from patients patient Sarah and try to identify if they have any auto antibodies for example, using proteome protein arrays or three. And these kinds of things have already been used to to diagnose also diseases, and you could set the bar very high. If you see anything at all even even signals that you might not completely understand that that might not be very strong You could use that as sufficient grounds to reject that boxing candidate. So you might actually. That A. Be Able to prevent these these adverse effects that. Patients would be exposing themselves to phase three trial before they even happened. And then you could have course. Even off the vaccine approval US same kinds of acids to for continue monitoring so. So it could be that if we we embrace the need to do very fast, we might be able to more safety than we have in the US. I guess part of Vaccine Safety that I never really thought about until now is is safety predicated on the rare event where somebody has a an unusual Lille so genetic variant that causes them to have a reaction, or is it something that like how? How is that what we're looking for? We're talking about safety is. How do you provide a vaccine that? Works for everybody without a rare. Problem is that what we're looking at? Now obviously, we would like to provide a universal vaccine in the cancer context. We are actually able to to personalize vaccine to to each individual's. Tumor, but I. Don't think it's possible here, so so I think I. think that's right, so we do need to to I. Guess it's that that's something we may not fully understand what predisposes year to those rare adverse effects but I don't think we need to know that here. We just need to be able to spot them. Spot signs of those adverse events very early and then make sure we only folks in vaccine candidates that do work very broadly across lake without any safety risks. I guess I'm really naive in this regard because. Seems like vaccines are really well understood, and we know how they work. We know what antibodies are how they're induced with respect to an antigen challenge. And so these things generally are safe and effective. So what are some of the things that could go wrong that you might monitor for? Probably the trickiest parts of that? Could go wrong which Maybe, actually significant risk for many of the leading vaccine currently his phenomenon, Colt antibody dependent enhancements. what that means is that either antibodies generated in a patient either from a previous infection or from a vaccine? Make the viral infection worse and there are several mechanisms through which this can happen..

"Is it going to be some version of the virus? itself will be to provide protein. You're going to use Mr Rene like we are or or DNA to encode the Antigen and make your make the patient's own cells make it. So. You have to figure that out. You have to test it in animal. Although some some of the players now in the clinic actually skip that step. And going straight humans. You have to figure out how to scale up manufacturing. You have to then engage. In a series of clinical trials, starting with phase one, which is just looking at safety in healthy subjects faced to if he could see a large group of patients, and then finally both safety and efficacy in phase three in an even even larger group of people and. One reason why we think a Centrally Ledge Manhattan version would be more efficient first of all than. separates individual vertically integrated companies working on this Israeli that. Each company has their own strengthen weaknesses and Some might be stronger in some aspects of the pipeline is described than others so essentially lead product to pick and choose The best solution from from each each company, and also try to solve all these problems simultaneously any parallel, so you should be able to get a massive speed up just from that. But really the big problem is the safety parts, and the question there is why why do vaccines take so long to develop? And the main reason is that The Bar for vaccines as very high because you will end up giving them to healthy people. And there are some quite serious but extremely rare adverse effects stats. MAXINE can have so. The standard approach has been to monitor. A large cohort in a clinical trial for a long time up to two years or more to see if these adverse effects occur. It's a holiday collapse that though I mean safety is really important, and you're talking about a six month timeframe. So how do you take the very rigorous approach to safety, analysis and break that down into a much smaller window. That is really the key question for this whole project and and the answer we are proposing..

And, now we're back on the talking biotech podcast. We're speaking with Dr Han new, but I mean he's the CEO and Co founder of Helix. Nanno were speaking about the vaccine Manhattan project in the first part of the a podcast we spoke about the relevance of a vaccine as opposed the therapeutics and social distancing, and all other ways that we attempted to mitigate the penetration of SARS Kobe to, and so now we're going to talk about this idea of the Vaccine Manhattan project and I love this idea. So? What was the spirit intent of the original Manhattan project. The original Manhattan project was. Military a operation in response to a an existential challenge where in that case, the essential challenge was the Nazi Germany developing an atomic bomb before the US was able to and The approach taken was to essentially. Try to eliminate as much as technical of taking risk in the project as possible by this very massively paralyzed approach where. Every problem that was identified was being solved a similar painlessly in in parallel in multiple ways. The Manhattan project developed multiple ways for uranium. Plus one additional way of enriching plutonium There were several boom designs. There were several several approaches to modeling, the explosives, explosions, and so on as well as rea- massive investment in enabling infrastructure. That allowed the perfect to be scaled their rapidly and. And it was also this kind of let's built a a plane in mid air, kind of situation in an unprecedented way. And it ended up being a very successful now. obviously that was in a very warlike context. So now the question is, can we do the same for a in the context of healthcare in in peace time, although although the current situation we are in does resemble a war with this. prevalent. Invisible enemy. So what we are calling for is a Manhattan project like approach where we radically upgrade. Both the core vaccine technologies that we will throw this as well as the methods, the infrastructure and tribal designs of how we actually assess vaccine safety. Well what are the current steps if you WanNa have a vaccine developed through research and then taking through clinical trials like what has to happen now. So what is of course already happening around the world? I think now. different individual projects is that you have to choose which part of the virus you're going to target or whether you're going to use an attended vires vaccines. Oh this vaccine design question. There's the question of how you're going to presents your antigen to the immune system I..

It's presenting gradually to the healthcare system, and you know what you're talking twelve eighteen months.
