New Cases of COVID-19 In World Countries
"Big news over the last twenty? Four hours has been the glimmer of hope surrounding the experimental drug rim desert which shows promise as a treatment for corona virus. And we're gonNA give this news. Its own segment immediately following this top news segment so hold on for that but I I thought it might be worth summarizing the state of things across the globe at the moment without just throwing a ton of numbers at you so in a very broad high level way things look like this. Italy Spain. Germany and France seemed to be effectively. Lowering their curves. Sweden and Canada are still near the peak of their diseases possibly plateauing but need a few more days of data there note. That Britain is sadly on track to surpass. Italy's total for the most number of deaths in Europe absolutely no new cases in both South Korea and Hong Kong over the last twenty three hours. In fact Hong Kong has had no new cases for five straight days and also south. Korea was one of the early places to peak if you'll recall recording nine hundred nine cases on February twenty-ninth alone Vietnam despite its ninety five million person. Population has still not reported a single death. And only two hundred seventy cases meanwhile Sri Lanka has reintroduced a strict twenty four hour curfew as a number of new corona virus. Cases has surged there and Japan will apparently extend its national state of emergency to June as the country is experiencing a second wave of infections in the US again. A very broad way looking at the case number graphs. The number of new cases are trending up in Massachusetts Illinois Maryland. Indiana Virginia Colorado Tennessee and North Carolina things are flats in New York California Pennsylvania Michigan Texas Washington State Rhode Island and Missouri. All of those are off of their some significantly and the states where cases are decreasing New Jersey Florida Louisiana Connecticut Georgia Ohio South Dakota and Idaho and yes this is a a sad statistic to end with the US past sixty thousand official corona virus deaths since we last spoke quoting the Washington Post. The California Police Chiefs Association has told its members that Governor Gavin newsom plans to announce Thursday that all beaches and state parks will be closed effective Friday. The anticipated move follows a weekend in which thousands of people took advantage of warm weather and crowded California beaches in violation of social distancing restrictions in place in the state prompting newsom to warn of the potential of a second wave of the corona virus outbreak and quotes. Dr Anthony Fao. She told CNN last night that the long awaited day where capacity for testing in the US should reach the point where anyone who wants to test can get one is about a month away specifically his quote was hopefully we should see that as we get towards the end of May the beginning of June and quotes and the number of nursing homes reporting cases of covert nineteen in the US has doubled in the past week with more than one in six elder care facilities in the US now acknowledging infections among residents or staff in five states Maryland Massachusetts Connecticut Georgia and New Jersey. The viruses struck majority of nursing. Homes and in New Jersey infections have been reported at eighty percents of the state's nursing homes. Finally this is quoting the New York Times. The british-based pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca said on Thursday that it had reached an agreement to make and distribute a leading potential corona virus vaccine. The drug developed by scientists at Oxford is now in human trials. The Oxford researchers are at the forefront of the race for vaccine because they had already demonstrated the safety of similar potential innoculations for other viruses that is enabled them to schedule. Human trials of their vaccine that will involve six thousand people by the end of next month. If those succeed the scientists hope to the first few million doses to frontline healthcare workers as early as September the deal with Astrazeneca could help ensure that a potential vaccine is available in the United States and around the world and quote a government run study of Gilead Sciences rim. Devere showed that the drug is effective at treating cove in nineteen the National Institutes of Health announced in a statement. Gilead said that the study had reached its primary endpoint meaning that patients on room desert recovered more quickly than those taking a placebo. Dr Anthony Fauci head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases or Niaid told reporters that the data from the trial showed a quote clear cut positive effect in diminishing time to recover and added that this will be the standard of care. We've talked about Rendez. Aveer A lot. In recent shows early data from a trial in Chicago indicated that patients were doing better than expected on the drug than those hopes were somewhat when a study in China indicated that patients taking room does Aveer. Didn't do any better than those in a control group in this in. Isd Study Severe was compared to Placebo in one thousand sixty three patients with neither doctors nor patients knowing who actually got the drug in a statement the NASD said an independent data and safety monitoring board overseeing the trial met on April twenty seventh to review data and shared their interim analysis with the study team based upon their review of the data. They noted that Rendez Aveer was better than placebo from the perspective of the primary endpoint time to recovery. A metric often used in influenza trials. Recovery in this study was defined as being well enough for hospital discharge or returning to normal activity level. Preliminary RESULTS INDICATE THAT PATIENTS. Who received rimmed reservoir? Had A thirty one percent faster time to recovery than those who received placebo specifically the median time to recovery was eleven days for patients treated with remedies aveer compared with fifteen days for those who received. Placebo results also suggested a survival benefit with mortality rate of eight percent for the group receiving Rim desert versus eleven point six for the Placebo Group and quote the FDA is expected to issue emergency use authorization for the drug Gilead the maker of Rim desert also revealed initial results from its own phase three trial of the drug in which it is comparing five day in day courses of treatment. The company found that a five day course is essentially just as effective as a longer course meaning the existing supply of the drug could be used to treat a greater number of patients unlike the NASD study. There was no control group. So the study doesn't speak to reservoirs. Overall effectiveness murder piracy Gilead.

Are Insect Guts the Secret to the Most Delicious Kimchi?
"So Kimchi is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. This is Kevin Kin. He's the food ethnographer. PhD candidate at the University of Maryland and gastropod listener. Calvin Ho recommended that we give Kevin Call to talk talk about yes Kimchi. Basically it is a traditional Korean dishes for mental vegetables. The formula of witches normally fermented seasonal vegetables with some form for meant seafood sometimes in the form of anchovies brine shrimp but it runs the gamut in the US. The kind of Kimchi. We nearly early always eat is made of cabbage but Lawrenson tunes it. Kimchi company called mother-in-law's and she wrote the Kimchi Cookbook. She says it doesn't have to be. It can be made with any vegetables. Roy So it's not necessarily NAPA cabbage that makes it Kimchi. It's the process of Fermenting pickling that Bro says the fermentation it produces a shall we say distinctive smell. It's hard to describe having grown up with it my whole life but I would say to me it smells. It's not like home but I think it's a vegetable funk that you might get from something like Sauerkraut interspersed with the sharp aromas this of onion and garlic and scallions and actually sauerkraut and Kimchi. Our booth made through the same fermentation process. There are two main differences. One is the type of cabbage. Sauerkraut is usually made with that hard greenish round cabbage and not frilly NAPA cabbage. The other one is the differences in the seasonings but the fermentation method. That's the same and for the most part. Kimchi is played with red pepper. So sometimes it's quite spicy but it doesn't necessarily have to be there varieties. That are not spiced but that fermentation lactic acid. Bacteria's what gives it. Its ZIP zing. That's what gives it what Koreans call life. There's an old saying in Korea that Kimchi is half of all the the food provision Koreans traditionally have Kimchi at all three meals breakfast. Lunch and dinner it served as a side. It's omnipresent on on on the side you know. A lot of people will say without Kim cheaters. No there is. No meal was born in South Korea but I immigrated to the United States when I was two but even when I was in La we first moved to La up. Kimchi was always on the table. We always had jars of it. So if you're Korean you're likely never far from Kimche when you're at home but sometimes Koreans need to travel to places where Kim t might not be on every table because they want to have Kimchi with almost every meal. They'll pat Kimchi and sometimes jars. Because of the pressurization and the fact that Kim. She's alive with lactic. Acid bacteria will sometimes explode midflight the chefs deficit one of. La's trendiest restaurants animal. Actually had this happen to them. They'd cry of Axum Kimchi to bring it along with them. And when they got to the baggage carousel it was complete carnage. Everyone was gagging and holding their shirts over their noses. Kevin says there are entire Korean blog posts devoted to making sure. Your Kimchi won't explode it on the plane and overwhelmed your fellow passengers for the next however many hours when Lauren and Kevin were growing up in the US they ate tons of Kimchi. Of course but that pungent vegetal funk it was a problem at least around non Korean Americans the one thing that admonition that my mom always told me was to never eat. Kim She with with anyone. who wasn't Korean early on? I remember having it in my lunches and of course being made fun of for it because of that vegetal funk and having that some semblance of perhaps embarrassment or shame you know I would ask my mom. Why can't you just pack me? Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches. Of course that's all changed now Kevin and is proud of Kimchi but my question is how does cabbage which you know. I like cabbage. Okay but it's just cabbage. How does that become this essential sources zip and basically there's one bacteria called lactobacillus? You listeners might remember it from our Cerrado episode because along with yeast. It's a key part of sourdot starters Aziz lactobacillus they're also called lactic acid bacteria and they live to eat the sugars in the cabbage leaves. And then they excrete they excrete acid which sewer and they fought out carbon dioxide. That's the bubbles and more of the sourness. Oh the lactic. Acid bacteria are the key to Kimchi. And whenever we at GASTROPOD WANNA get up close and personal with the microbes in our food. We know who to call. I'm Ben Wolf and I am an assistant professor at Tufts University and Gastropods in-house microbiologist adjusts. Not only is he our very own in-house microbiologists now. Every podcast has that but we need a special who true but as it happens. Ben Is also in the middle of a huge huge Kimchi research. Project perfect there was a sort of baseline understanding of the traditional types of lactic acid bacteria that you would find in your average Kimchi. I'm she and most of this. Work was in Korea and so most of it was looking at what are the types of bacteria and also looking at this very clear succession this temporal change of microbes from the beginning of when you first put that Gina Jar and close it up to the whole fermentation process all the way to the end though if green scientists have figured all that out already. What's it's left for Ben to study so one thing that I find really fascinating about Kimchi? Compared to other fermented foods is that unlike cheese or Yogurt were you. You Start Cultures these these microbes that you buy Kimchi and Sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables are not inoculated. When you make Sauerkraut or or pickles or Kimchi you don't ever use a starter? Culture the microbes. Just kind of get in there. So unsurprisingly people like Ben Curious about where these microbes come from and they've tested various possible sources. Like maybe it's US we're the source says an interesting idea this Kimchi Hans or the idea that humans can be an innocuous oculus source for fermented foods in fact there was a really cool city recently here in Massachusetts looking at Sauerkraut production facility similar to Kimchi and a simple lots of different things in the environment that workers the walls and then they also sampled the raw materials the cabbage and they found the cabbage is really the primary source for these bacteria's Ben thanks. This is actually pretty surprising. Amazing that we can just go out pick or by all sorts of vegetables grown nearly anywhere in the world and we can basically always find these is beneficial lactic acid bacteria and so I started to think. Where are they coming from? What's the origin story for these lactic? ACID bacteria how do they get to the plant. Do Different and farms have different types or different abundances of lactic acid bacteria so ben and his graduate student. Esther Miller set out to answer these questions. She and others in the law we. We all went out and surveyed farms throughout New England so we went to Hampshire throughout Massachusetts Connecticut. A little bit into the Hudson Valley as well and said where are these lactic acid bacteria and what are they in terms of the species and abundant are they in the environment. Ami went to these fifty one farm some of them are community gardens. Most listen we're really small farms and we sampled the soil and then we also sampled the lease of weeds and other plants in the environment. We didn't directly sample cabbage. We just wanted to say what is the potential potential source of these bacteria because they have to hide out somewhere when they're not growing on the cabbage leaf and they did find lactobacillus but not as much as they expected. They're incredibly rare in the environment. Virement so it's it's actually really hard to find them so if you look in soil or if you look on leave us. They're usually less than one percent of all the types of bacteria that are in the Environment Mint and to us that was kind of surprising because it really does suggest that we're relying on these rare and somewhat variable groups of microbes do this important fermentation process versus one of the reasons. Bannon esther that these lactic acid bacteria or so rare on farms is because they aren't particularly comfortable. They're just not they're happy place. They're really good at fermenting sugars in a low oxygen somewhat salty and cold environment. So you think of your average cabbage leaf hanging out in a farm field in August. I it's one of those things I wanted to make sure that these lactic acid bacteria truly didn't love farm. Fresh cabbage leaves said they grew tiny sterile cabbages in the lab cabbages with literally. No microbial life so what you do. is you take cabbage seeds. And you sterilize. The surface of the cab seeds with ethanol and a little bit of bleach. And then you put them in a sterile klay medium that we have inside of a test tube and you grow them. They happily grow in the assessing the NAPA cabbages love. This environment went and then what we can do is spray those plants with different combinations of microbes and basically the lactic acid bacteria all die. It's not even that they're bad getting to the plant but once they do do they slowly just decrease in abundance so they're not even really good at fighting in that leaf environment where there's lots of other bacteria that will happily grow so again. It's sort of a magical thing that Kimchi Sauerkraut even works. Because we're relying on this really rare group of microbes. They're rare but like we said earlier. There are a whole bunch of different kinds of lactic acid bacteria that you can find in a Kimchi fermentation. So do those different varieties. Make a difference to your final kitschy. One of the questions that were interested in is what species you start off with in terms of the cabbage. Bring in from the farm. How does that control or contribute to the fermentation process and ultimately the flavor and quality of the product because because you would get different microbes going on different plants and so we're trying to tease that apart you? What is the role of geography? Is there a microbial terroirs to cabbage. And at this point we don't don't know yet we're just starting to do some of those experiments Bend told us all these questions and then he had an idea after all he knows where all about microbes era gastropod. Why not get us to do some of this research for him? You wanted to test her idea. You could buy different cabbages from different sources from anthem in the same way and see what happens I different.

"Van camp, there, Scott Robbins story if you're just joining us, we were talking about a female high school athlete that is suing because there are trans athletes competing against them. And they win. They dominate the boys beat the girls the girls beat the girls who are girls. He's saying it's not fair. And so is her lawyer? I mentioned Massachusetts, Connecticut while you're in the same ballpark. Yeah. Just wanna make the correction, the lawyer, by the way, I didn't realize that the one trans athlete the dude had this many record right now. One of these male athletes now hold ten records inside the state of Connecticut that were once held by ten individual girls. And we're established over the course of about a twenty year period. So it's fundamentally unfair to allow biological, males to step into women's sports, basically. Yeah. Can I ask another question here? Real quick, hypothetically. Is he eligible for a scholarship has a girl to go to a college to participate in sports? Great question. I mean, and if not is that unlawful, if you're not giving he she the opportunity to participate on a scholarship level after all I've earned that I have ten different records.

The classic nineties comedy Joe wanna man. This outstanding. Going forward, isn't it? Yeah. Those guys, usually go to Europe and play in Europe and make some money you make better money in Europe than you do. WNBA Europe and I'm forty years old now. And I still think I can compete. That's why I asked the question about Rodman. See, I don't know. I wear a dress if all of a sudden identified as female could he play? Boxing out playing for the mystic. It's not. I don't know. All right. What's the deal with the cocaine? Well, we asked what drug question we go to David? Oh, thank okay. Thanks. Thanks, man. Come on. Authorities sees thirty three thousand pounds of cocaine yesterday from ship at Packer marine, terminal and Philly. Do you hear about this? They're saying that this one estimate puts the street value at one billion dollars making it one of the biggest drug bust. They've ever had. That's crazy. A bunch of crew members were arrested they're going to be facing federal charges. There have been several major cocaine bus on the east coast, this year alone with thirties, finding thirty two hundred pounds of the port of New York, and New Jersey in February and drug dog sniffing out about eleven hundred pounds just a month later in Philadelphia. Feels like the eighties again. Now, the ship's owner MSE Mediterranean, shipping company, put out a statement that said, well, we take this very seriously. And we are grateful to the thirties for identifying any suspected abuse of our services. We had no idea officer, maybe a lot of surly people in Philly this weekend. Isn't it? True. That is the go-to man. We take this very seriously right at me shipping. Got people running trying to shake down coke dealers now in Philly. Say no it's just a new product called coke zero. Really, really like that. Okay. I was gonna say drug sniffing dogs, but that's not the story. This is story about dogs sniffing, but it's not sniffing out drugs, about living out cancer. It's Beagles new research shows that dogs can be trained to successfully sniff out cancer, you hear these stories every now and again about somebody who has been diagnosed with cancer in one of the reasons they knew because their dog, or they went to doctors because their dog kept sniffing around wherever may be, and they said somehow, the dog knew there was also at the nursing home death cat. If you remember that from a few years ago. Absolutely where the cat would go and sit on the lap of somebody who was about to die. Yes. Well, researchers from Lake Erie, college of osteopathic medicine, they spent eight weeks training Beagles to identify differences between blood samples from healthy adults and blood samples from people with one cancer. If the dogs sniffed the blood sample and didn't detect cancer. They just keep moving along. And if they smelled cancer, they would sit down indicating that, yes, this is a sample that's positive that cat it was ninety seven percent accurate. Oh master. They went through all the training. And so what they're going to be doing is not shipping. A bunch of Beagles out to hospitals, they're trying to figure out what it is about the dogs, noses their factory senses, and their brains. That give them that ability. So that hopefully they can create or perfect technology that would essentially allow people to be diagnosed with cancer really early on Breathalyzer. So you go to doctor's office for, for a checkup you. Flow into a device and boom, they can diagnose you or at least tell you, if you need to get checked out further. You know, it's like you hear about cancer diagnosis all the time, you know, different friends, or people that, you know, and it's just always heartbreaking, and you know that someone listening today is found out some of that love is, you know it's just this awful thing. I don't know if it makes it any better that it's a big oil that discovers it or not, you know what I'm saying? If you've got to find out that awful news is it a beagle? Bark. It. They just lay down.

I'll tell you I 'cause you asked me the question. How do I pick food on road trip? Yeah. I mostly use Google maps much to the consternation of other people in the car with me. 'cause it's like what's close and has the kind of food that I want, but also I tend to drive the same route over and over again and take various sorts of risks saying like, okay. Well, we're going to get off here. And we're going to see if we could find a place that's near here. A look at a map I'll try to find places nearby. I will of course, zoom in because I know if I zoom out, I will only get big chains and in order to see more options I have to come in. And I look at the pictures of the places that people have taken and left on a maps thing. I'll say what does this place? Look like that place. Doesn't look good. What does this place? Look like, oh that looks nice, right? That place looks interesting. And as such I've kind of overtime. Developed a little stable of places mostly being Boston and New York City, New Jersey that I'll stop at and. The only brand the only sort of multi location brand other than the Merritt Parkway rest stops that we like and stop at frequently is Frank pep as pizza because that was thing. And I was thinking Newhaven where we went to college. It's also delicious pizza who doesn't love pizza, right? Frank Pepys pizza now has this. But by von house locations, all up and down route eighty four in particular between this was bought by a hedge fund guy. This is what I what I miss living on the west coast. Sorry, met you you're under the impression that capitalism was in some sort of late stage. I wasn't infected stage of owning all the pizza which is a pretty place for anybody Bauer to be. I mean, I was what is it that Shakespeare said about revolutions, I eat all the pizza for step on revolutions. But no, no, no. But Frank pep is in expanded a bunch of times, there's one in Danbury. There's one in. I think it's in Waterbury. Oh, I might not be don't don't take my word for it. I know there's one in Danbury. I know this one closer closer to Stanford. But it's good pizza place. Right. So there's spring pep based and then there's also traveller traveller meant. No, it's a must be a local thing. Okay. So travelers worth talking about I've in fact, maybe if the only reason that we've never upon this discussion is to talk about traveler, then gripped because traveler, you all I know travel guy. That's the guy who Wesley goes off with in season five or six of Star Trek the next generation who teaches him. Like how to think beyond thought or something like that? Exactly. Got it. Okay. So traveler is good. You know it for the big sign. It is an eating place. It is a restaurants that is relatively close to the Massachusetts Connecticut border on the Connecticut side of the line. I tend to think of it as close to Toland, but I only think of Toland is being there because it's close to the toll plaza where the toll plaza used to be those things not actually that close, but it's north of Hartford and south of the border with Massachusetts along interstate eighty four, and it's a restaurant that serves kind of like diner, food like, burgers and fries and stuff. But when you go there, you get to take for free a certain number of books of the many bookshelves that surround the place, and so it's a really cool concept. I mean, it's it's funny because calling it a concept is something of a misnomer. The place is pr- seems pretty old, and I don't necessarily think of it as heavy being developed is a concept wood-paneled walls. You know, it's, but you can buy books there too.
