Coronavirus Vaccine Q&A: Variants, Side Effects, And More
"You're listening to shortwave from npr. As more and more of the covid nineteen vaccines. Roll out. Here at npr. We've been getting a lot of questions from y'all questions like if i'm vaccinated. Can i still pass the virus to somebody else. What are the side effects of vaccines. How soon until we vaccinated enough people to return to normal so today on the show we have answers as part of a special segment. I just did on another. Npr podcast called. It's been a minute with sam sanders. Yes i am in the hot seat for this one. Y'all if you haven't checked that show out do it. It consistently makes me thank laugh. Cry it is so so good. I'm eddie. And you're listening to shortwave daily science. Podcast from npr. My dear friend who had a how are you. Welcome back to the show. I'm doing well sam. How are you buddy. I'm good. I feel like the last time we had yuan seems like forever ago but i think my biggest question with crow virus. Yes whether i could still pet other people's dogs. Oh that's interesting. That's an interesting version of that story because it was about whether or not you could kiss them on. The mouth is however members over the past few weeks. We have asked you our listeners. To send in your questions about the vaccine all right if folks were able to get the vaccine. Can they still carry and transmit corona virus to other people. So let's start off with what we know for sure right. We know that the vaccines that are authorized in the us. Do an excellent job of preventing symptoms of covid including those really scary severe symptoms. And let's just say the moment here on the show to acknowledge how monumental that is. I mean that means fewer cases that result in hospitalizations given our healthcare workers break that means less people dying every day. I mean that in itself is huge. And that's what the vaccines were designed and tested to do so. As far as whether or not vaccinated person could have the virus in their bodies. Pass it to somebody else. Even if they don't get sick there is some early. And i mean like really early data. That looks promising Some that shows that vaccinated people are less likely to have the virus in their body at all or they carry less virus. So that's all very good news but we still don't have enough data to say for sure that the vaccine cuts down on transmission or by. How much so for now we just kind of have to wait which means that vaccinated folks should still mask up. When they're interacting with people outside their household especially if those people earned vaccinated if we know that the vaccine will protect you from getting severe symptoms. Most likely is it safe for two people who are fully vaccinated to hug or like hang out in the same room. Yeah okay so. Here's what i will say about this. Because we don't know for sure if vaccinated people can carry the virus those vaccinated people just need to think about who else they are interacting with right. So if you're living at home with somebody who has severely immuno-compromised is in vaccinated. You would treat the situation differently than if you live by yourself right but if you are to vaccinated people. Maybe even wearing masks for. That added layer of risk reduction. I think you've reduced risk enough. You know to hug it out especially if you were to people that don't have like close contact with other people. I am a big proponent of risk reduction that still allows us to have some of our humanity right and requested. You know to vaccinated hugging. I would argue is one of those situations. People will argue with me. But i would say so. You know there are so many headlines it seems like every day there's a new variant of the corona virus who knows where they're coming from. How effective is the vaccine against other and newer variants of corona virus. So this is a great question. Great question other stumper. I wish your listeners. With throw me a couple of corona. So what i would say is. This is another situation where things are developing right. We didn't know about these variants like a month or two ago but there are some data that suggests that the vaccine might not work as well for a few of those variants. At this point you know most of the experts that we're talking to say they will still work right. That's the beauty of having vaccines that super super effective that even if they don't work as well against one variant they will still provide protection In fact public health officials are saying that the best way to prevent these variants from really taking off in the us is by having as many people vaccinated as possible so for now with the variants that we're seeing in the us. It looks like the vaccines will work. Well on most of them and still provide some protection on the others which is good news. All right As more and more people in my circles get the vaccine. I'm starting to hear them. Talk to me about side effects and a few folks. I know said i was fine. Second dose. I was like knocked out for a day. Or what in. General are the side effects of the vaccine. Yeah this is a great question. I'm really glad we're talking about side effects. Because i think it's important to talk about them and be transparent so all vaccines can cause side effects right. And that's because vaccines worked by kick-starting your immune system similar to what would happen with a natural infection so if you do get side effects like you get a little bit of swelling from the shot or you get a mild fever is just your immune system doing what we want it to do now. Rarely vaccines do more serious reactions like allergic reactions for example. So it's really important to talk about allergies with your doctor before getting the vaccine or you know if you get the shot and swelling gets worse after a day or if your other symptoms are getting more severe lasting more than a few days you should call the doctor but the overwhelming majority of the time sam for the two vaccines that are authorized for use in the us. The most common symptoms are pain at site of injection swelling As well as fevers chills aches feeling tired and and some people experience very little of those symptoms and some feel pretty uncomfortable. Like you said for a few days especially after that second shot because that first shot your immune system's like oh. Hey what's up what's up what's going on in that second job was like oh you like now. You're trying to see so so that is really your immune system really being kicked in action. So like you said. I've heard of people that need to take the day off after that second shot. Here's the thing. Sam those types of side effects. Go away right and you know. It doesn't always go away after a few days. Kobe right you know what i mean. So i think it's important to be transparent about vaccine side effects but also to remind people like for the overwhelming majority. This is not even close to being as bad as a bad case of covert all right next question for you. Let's say you're grandparent has been vaccinated But you a younger person have not. Can you still see them And is this scenario. A little bit safer for the more vulnerable person. Okay so this is. This is a good one Because it's all about assessing levels of risk. And like i said you know risk is not an all or nothing scenario and there's a lot to work through to make these types of decisions so let's walk through this example so you've decided you really really want to see your grandparents right. Your grandparents has been vaccinated. So you've cut the risk of them getting that bad case of covid down quite a bit. And that's big right before going. I would probably try to quarantine for a while myself Especially if they are in a nursing home. Because i don't wanna bring cove into that facility. Because i'm not just an interact with my grandparents. You know if they're in their own house maybe that's a different story. So that's all like before the visit. And then on the day of the visit one thing i would leave your audience with is when you're seeing anybody like the thing to think about is how do i cut down on the amount of air i am sharing with people right. That's the big if you can carry that one thing in your head. That's the biggest thing because most transmission happens in close contact through the air not through necessarily like groceries or stuff like that so that's important to keep in mind so if i'm going over to my grandmother's and she makes me call her that sam by the way the full grandmother she demands respect. You will not be called. Grandma i would be. I would be wearing a well fitted mask like we talked about. If i could and this is a huge one i would try to take it outside if i could if not i would want to get fresh air circulating in the room because fresh air circulation is one of the best things you can do if you have to be indoors and then the last thing to think about his time right. It's not just proximity. It's also time. So i'd make the visit pretty short too. I mean the cdc suggests less than fifteen minutes if you're indoors but that's variable so it's just about keeping that visit a short as you can and then after the visit like i said same thing is going in. I'd probably quarantine for a bit just to make sure if i got it. You know somehow from being out. And about i don't spread it. Gotcha gotcha We are seeing millions of americans getting the vaccine which sounds good and feels good. But when do we know that were there. Like what percentage of the population needs to be vaccinated before you can have her immunity. Yeah so okay. This is unsurprisingly. Another complicated one so apple over here over what. i'll take it. I i mean it's not my first choice but it's not my last okay. Okay so if you're not familiar with this term herd immunity happens after people have been infected or vaccinated instill. There's essentially nowhere for the virus to go. There's not enough susceptible. People left for corona virus Tune fact so there aren't those like massive outbreaks but there isn't one straightforward number to reach herd immunity a changes based on a lot of things the biggest one probably is the germ itself so for this corona virus. Some public health officials if thrown around that like seventy to eighty five percent of people would need to be vaccinated or infected to. Have you know the level of immunity that we would need and and the difficulty knowing the answer to your question sam like. When do we reach. That number is that we don't actually even know how many people have gotten the corona virus. You know realistically. There's a lot of infections that we don't catch for multiple reasons. There's a lot of people that have a symptomatic infections. That kind of stuff so that complicates we also don't know how long immunity lasts so for some diseases. You get once in your protected for years or your lifetime and that's probably not what's going to happen with this one really got those variants on the scene. You've heard of those variants. Those could play a role here too. So there's a scenario in which this first round the vaccine that folks get first two rounds they'll have to be more vaccine shots down the road. I mean there's the potential for that it would be kind of like a booster situation. Perhaps we don't really know yet right now. It looks like our vaccines are working. Really well but i know that there are some vaccine companies that are looking into developing more vaccines. That would you know basically be kind of a booster situation. So i think you know san we ask like when can we reach her immunity when things go back to normal you know i would argue and people would argue with a gun That herd immunity might not be a reality for this virus like some people might know. It's not it's not that bad. Some places might achieve something close to it but this is a global pandemic right like viruses travel with people who travel so real herd immunity. You know global herd immunity would be tough to achieve. And so you know. I think we have to learn how to live with this virus to be realistic. You know the coronavirus will probably be around to some degree for a long time. And so i think focusing on what we can do you know getting vaccinated if you can continue asking up physically distancing reducing your risk as much as you can the more we do those things right now the faster we will get to our new normal which sam. I am happy to tell you. We'll be much much much more livable than where we are. Now last big picture question for you. Matty like a lot of the answers around these questions are complicated and nuanced and data and information will change over time as scientists learn more things but is there any kind of certainty yet or any kind of forecasting on the uncertainty horizon. About what our springs and summers might look like regarding the scene. Can you forecast what the next few months might deal. I mean say It's it's really really tough. I wish i could give you a better idea of this but what it will say is that i understand the question. And it's it's something that i sit with. You know every single day. It's it's it's really hard right like to know when this thing is going to be over like when things are going to feel better and what a would say is that these vaccines are going to make a huge difference. You know when. I said we're not going to be corona virus free. That doesn't mean that it's going to be in our face like this all the time. I mean i. It could be something similar to the flu. Where still impacts our lives but we have systems to to live with it. And you know if these vaccines are rolled out quickly and equitably. I've heard public health officials talking about this fall or or maybe more at the end of the year like really feeling a lot. More of a return to normal. Even if it's not totally back to normal. But i think more importantly than predicting when it will happen is just you know keeping the faith that it will happen like knowing that this will happen we will return to this newish normal and and that we have agency you know and that we have a say in this so so

Interview with Thriller Writer Avanti Centrae: S. 6, Ep. 13 - burst 02
"Tell us about the van ops series you've been compared to authors like hand brown and clive tessler so action packed. Might be a good word for it. Yeah action packed. Yes a lot of readers have said. They're literally glued to the edge of their seats. I've had people tell me. They are holding their breath and and that's fantastic. Yeah the other two authors that. I'm often compared to our james rollins and steve berry. So it's small smart pulp fiction. It's filled with intrigue in history and science and mystery kind of all wrapped up in a nonstop action package. Yeah i was gonna say I started writing down what your book was like the first one that i said like a travel guide with an adventure story plus mysticism mystery artifact hunting and spycraft. Pretty much encapsulates it. Yeah there's always overachiever. Yeah i've always been an overachiever. And yeah i. I like to Provide readers with their money's worth as i'm a reader to and i like books that are richly textured with characters that jump off the page. You know and And i've always enjoyed History and and traveling and cruising to places around the world and wanted to include all of that in my books. Well you've done very well with that. I mean you've done a great job. Because the same way i was kind of on the edges might see reading your there. And you're protagonist is medi. Who is nike no expert. I thought that was really cool. What inspired you create this particular character. Yeah that's an insightful question. Debbie and i also liked erica johnson. In in your. Yeah i read. I just read damaged goods and really enjoyed her to matty They they both meditate. Actually it was kind of interested to see that Your character is dealing with some deep emotional stuff and uses meditation as a way to to deal with that and matty's got a little bit more of a pedestrian background than erica does so matty has been an app designer for her job She was an almost olympic athlete. So she's got some physical skills and since high school. She's enjoyed akito. And the reason that i chose akito is because i see a lot of books in our genre where the protagonist is almost callous. Oh and bang ahead to shoot somebody again. Oh well well. I wanted somebody. That will is more morally conflicted about having to use violence. And i thought what's a better conflict because great stories all about great conflict right so what's better than having somebody who is morally opposed to violence being shot at by russian snipers i thought that would be a wonderful setup and and it turned out really good. The theme of that whole first book is is around. You know violence enforce and what's appropriate to us and what's in our culture so i also like having you know bigger themes in my work to yeah fun to explore.
Happy (Harm Reduction) Thanksgiving!
"Matty safai here and emily so over the past week the. Us has hit a record number of corona virus cases multiple times. The us enters the worst stage of the coronavirus pandemic date with an unthinkable. One million new cases each week and no sign of letting up. We'll any california is the second state to record more than one million girl virus cases in the past month. A number of people hospitalized with the virus in the us has nearly doubled. We now have what experts call unchecked community spread in more than forty states. Some hospitals in parts of the midwest are completely at capacity or almost there and many of our healthcare workers are exhausted. And this is happening as we're headed into the holidays right and the reality is when people get together for holidays like thanksgiving. It's impossible to be risk free. All gatherings carry risk and that risk is considerably greater when you include people from outside your immediate household. Yeah the safest way to do. Thanksgiving is actually to stay where you
Sigma Prime with Mehdi Zerouali
"Hey everyone my name's Matty I'm a CO founder and director of Sigma Prime We are an information security consultancy mostly based out of Australia being hiring a bunch of people all over the world lately. We've been around for about full years providing security assessment services to a lot of blockchain projects working. Almost exclusively lately on. Iridium. Providing security assessment on smart contracts on a lot of protocol. Layer developments. And I guess we are here to talk about Easter 'cause we are also the founders and maintainers of light hops arrest implementation of the. Two point plano specification thanks for having. A real quick. What would you say the? Technical advantage or differentiator lighthouse has over other there to. Invitations. a question question it. We that quite often we because of of the the company we're in information security consultancy we take security very seriously. We'd like to think that we've incorporated security into our development lifecycle very early on. So would like to think that our clients is probably one of the hopefully safest was secure clients out there it's written in Ross Ross is particularly fast. So the focus has also been on the fullness speeds and as I mentioned security So that's probably what differentiates from the rest of the other teams. Get a moment to pitch chill out to private the process of lighthouses. Good nells offended A. that. The approach here is the kind of. Break down the concept of theorem to what's going on and what users can expect so. I'm not exactly sure how I want to do this the the conversations going to naturally evolve I think but like if you had to give the. Highest of high. Level overviews of the transition from ethylene S to. Or just say. Okay. Let's have this. So, F one is the proof of work chain that we all love us and as you all probably know, the plan was always to transition to approve of stay consensus mechanism. So namely. Casper, if g so the research team has been working on this. If your foundation research you had been working on this for the past four, five, six years and mentors have been developing the. Specification, turning it into actual usable software. For the past two and a half years. The main difference as mentioned is the consensus mechanism. So moving away from proof of work, which is a quite a west full way of coming to consensus if you ask me. I know this can be quite polarizing community, but this is basically how Paul my co founder got started on Lighthouse I think ethereal currently uses as much electricity as Costa. Rica, if I'm not mistaken. And we think sigma prime. That is so. Much. Better ways of coming to consensus. And kost perfect is one of them. So super excited about the environmental impact of the transition from steak and this transition will happen gradually. we'll be shipping if to in various phases. So phase zero is the first phase that will be introduced hopefully a few weeks I a couple months. The latest set ladies year is what we're aiming for. and. This introduces consensus change. Right is introduces the proof of stake consensus mechanism Gasparilla Gene, and we essentially call these chain, the beacon chain, and you can see as this orchestrate. That gives the pulse of the network to Valley daters, giving them tasks, rewarding them when they do their job correctly. Penalizing them when they don't etc, etc.. That's phase zero. That's what I guess. All client teams are working on at the moment and. Phase One will hopefully come shortly up and phase one introduces shards, the concept of shod. So Ethier two point Oh will be shotted blockchain meaning that will have. Sixty four sub block changing see them as sort of independent blockchain's that are all linked and tides with each other through five that consensus mechanism in the beacon. Check. So. Once we have that will be effectively using those shards just as dot availability layers we won't. Have State transitions or users of smart contracts or transactions as we are all familiar with in if one that will come in light up so talks about phase one point five, which hopefully will. Get one into each to and have that as a separate dedicated shot. In face to. Will introduce I, guess proper state execution and smart contracts, and this is when will actually have a blockchain usable blockchain developers as we all relative with them when you hear him on. That makes sense.
Micro Wave: Why Some Fruits Ripen Faster In A Paper Bag
"Hey nerds. So today we've got eight special guest short waves, very own producer Brett Hansen Hey Brit. Hello. Hello. This is your first on air shortwave appearance and I am aggressively excited about this I. Know You are yes, it is. Your. And today we've got our latest microwave installment, you know these snappy episodes with a couple of quick signs tidbits, some listener mail, which I very much enjoy reading every morning except for mean. I picture you with Your Cup of coffee and cats just going through the mail. So you've your investigative reporting skills to work on from what I can tell is your favorite topic of all time peaches US yeah I really really love peaches Yeah. I. Don't know if you know this but I do eat one standing over my kitchen sink pretty much every day I. do know that you've told me that Multiple Times Brit actually can't stop talking about it. They're the best part of summer. But now that summer's over, I've been using that paper bag trick to get them ripe. Do you know what I'm talking about you put them unripe and peaches and a paper bag for a couple of days. Take them out will oh yeah. They're ripe I'm doing that trick all the time I'm doing that trick right now actually knew or not I have peaches from the farmers market in a bag trust me. Okay. Well, that's actually what we're going to talk about today I've been using this trick for years, but I had no idea why it works. So I wanted to find out. So today on the show, we talked to a fruit expert about why some fruits like peaches ripen faster in paperback and why others don't. And? This is shortwave. From NPR. Okay Britt. We are talking about why some fruit like peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So who did you talk to? Yeah so I called Juan Carlos Melgar he's a professor and pathologist at Clemson University some people say what's Pamala geology the science that study for three? Yes. So matty, full disclosure I didn't know what a pathologist was before I talked to one Carlos somebody who studied fruit trees shame another thing I didn't know is just how many varieties of peaches there are many take a guess how many do you think there are? A eleven. Okay. Well, eleven is a great number. Tell, it's not right. I could tell. But it is not the right number. Juan Carlos told me that he works with almost three hundred different varieties. There's no three hundred and he says compare that to apples. For instance, a lot of people know dame's varieties apples. Gala. Readily shows or whatever. However, nobody knows varieties features. And that's because they're legal Ten days two weeks bad variety is gone. Wow. You're already in my mind but Hansen. Okay. Each facts are facts I feel like I've been disrespecting peaches up until this point and I, need to change. Okay. So what did you find out about the paper bag trick? Yes. So one Carlo says that there are two key factors to understanding why some fruit including peaches ripen faster in a paper bag. So let's start with factor number one beaches produce a gaseous horrible. It's called Italy so. That gashes hormone ethylene is a ripening hormone. So as peaches ripen, they produce a burst of ethylene. So ethylene ripening go hand-in-hand exactly. But it's not just that a ripening peach produces ethylene it also responds to it. So say, for example, you create an environment where a peaches not only producing ethylene, but it's also surrounded by it that right there is the trick to making the peach ripen faster finding away to surround a peach in the gase hormone. I. I'm sorry expect gas or boat. I. Okay. Okay. This is where the paper bag comes in right? Yeah. So you put a peach in a paper bag close it up, and then all of the ethylene it's naturally producing gets captured and starts to accumulate inside the bag which means peach surrounded by ethylene Michael Peach steam room. A. Virtuous. Cycle exactly. That's exactly it's like. Okay. There's another part of this that I thought was pretty cool to arrived impeach. Using lot of athletes could help ripening a piece that is driving yet or not the same banana. Classic example Ou Yeah. So basically, the more ethylene accumulating in the bag, the faster the fruit ripens. So Super Ripe Peach is going to help a really hard peach ripen even faster. If that makes sense personally, I like to call this fruit teamwork. Mattie I think that that's a scientific term. So Okay Br does it matter whether or not you use a paper bag or could you just put the peach in like some other kind of container I actually wondered about this too. So basically, is there something special about the paper bag and this brings us to factor number two respiration? The other characteristics of these fruits is that they have not on the peaking saving. Peaking risk creation there we spiring. Yeah fresh fruit continue to fire or breathe if you will after being harvested so. Even producing carbon dioxide those peaches need that Oxygen Hanson. If. That seal two accumulating, they're they're useless oxygen. refire this. It's going to slow down there. Got It in writing if you wanted to writing to let that go on. Okay. So something that allows like a bit of airflow or just oxygen to be coming in and out. So a plastic bag won't work neither will a tupperware container or anything else that essentially prevents oxygen from getting inside Sudas the paper bag trick work for other fruits too. So it works for some but not all peaches, bananas, tomatoes basically fruits that ripen off the plant after they've been picked. Those are the ones that you can pop into a paper bag. Got It wow Brett Hansen. I. Have Learned so much

Well because of clumsiness, some some players and and just mentioned MVP I think I'm not sure that mini. Was the best team overall during the season of chimpanzee. Yes. But then that game I think they were in control of the game but personally, I had some chances to to to surprise him to kill them even and. The fantastic new year in goal I. Think. Could have lead the game in the first half but again, mini chinses wasted by a the strikers and I think Keefe I can regime the game I. Think the defense is the defense is better than the tax which pulls them what we were expensive causality. Wasn't but I think a good example of that was choice at NC. Flake makes in terms of having Komen playing therapeutic. Essentially telling us you know what we think insulin common can dominate one one situation sending doing that we don't need. WE'RE NOT GONNA force funds Davis to get forward down the left hand side because kids can take care that. Finish it cannot do that as well. He talks signed. Davis on the overlapping runs and I think is by design that Afonso Davis did not really have a for dissipation in attack he was holding back almost as if to say, you know what this is our way of not dropping off we're going to maintain our hide line while we're not gonNA take many chances going forward and I think what you saw from by Munich is they played A conservative game with a lot of talented players and bathing. Not WanNa take chances really going forward because the the time that they did take those chances going forward than PSG had opportunities and when we say that PSG had opportunities, we're talking about PTSD team who had the chances fall to the right people. It's too bad is to Neymar is to Maria three clear opportunities in my opinion. In the first half they not take advantage of and from then on it was difficult to see PTSD to get after by Munich particularly after by an escort PSG got disorganized, they were more concerned about the files, the yellow cars, the physicality of the game rather than playing the game a no better example of that that Neymar who in the second half had difficulties trapping the ball passing. The ball doing the basic stock he was busy drawing fouls but not actually having an impact on the game. We
She Dies Tomorrow Review
"Welcome to film spotting. So if you're the kind of person who used to stay on top of new releases, maybe you saw two or four or even more new movies every month this new paradigm that has new releases popping up on various platforms with little or no warning can be frustrating. Probably, it is hard for us even Josh to keep up with isn't it miss the days of the studio release calendar that was nice. Never thought we'd say that that being said while the world waits for major titles like tenant or There are smaller films being released all the time every weekend. Later in the show, we're going to get to a few of them I though I review of a movie that had its own unique release plane drive in theaters for a week before becoming available on demand on August seven. How? Can you come over? Are you. Okay. I. AM going. Mar.. Is Not Marin for me. All right listen I'm really freaking right now. I feel like you put this idea of dying in my head can can you just call him back? Adam as the title suggests she dies tomorrow is about death. This is the second feature from writer. Director Amy Simon She's probably also familiar to send a files as an actor in the likes of upstream color and wild nights with emily and here she is specifically focusing on characters who come into let's just say a heightened awareness of their mortality caitlyn she'll plays amy a woman in. The wake of break-up who we watch and the opening section of the movie spending listless lonely night trying to unpack in her new home at one point in the evening, a pulsing blue and red strobe. Light effect seemingly invades the space casting amy under a spell. When she comes out of it, she calls a friend played by Jane Addams and tell Sir I'm going to die tomorrow. Now, that's a line or at least a variation on it that characters might speak in many of your favorite films atom fair to say mortality is a pet theme of yours You and Matty did a top five movies about mortality list back in two, thousand, eight, all that jazz wild strawberries. Those films were among your choices so I couldn't help lender after watching. She dies tomorrow. If you found the movie satisfying in the way, it explicitly presents plays with the idea of our impending deaths. Does it deserve retroactive consideration for a top five list of movies about mortality in terms of subject matter and the way it's explored regardless of my personal reaction to it, you'd absolutely have to consider it for such a top five and. I think about Jane addams character in the movie she's a friend of Caitlin shields, amy, and this is a film where almost every character in the movie not all but almost every character has the name of the actor portraying them just in case you were wondering whether or not. There was meant to be any crossover into the personal lives of this cast in the film makers Caitlyn. She'll is playing amy right named after. Presumably. Amy Siamese and whenever Jane is confronted by dubious when she starts her spiel about how she too is sure she's going to die tomorrow. She has a habit of trying to express what she's feeling that certainty with examples right there's multiple times where she says things like it's like when you're going for a walk and something happens and I'm GonNa follow her lead here Josh to start every single one of us knows. We're going to die right we walk around with that knowledge on some level every day but that doesn't carry the same terror with it as those times when it does really hit you
A Democracy at Risk
"Welcome to the this is a podcast about politics race and culture from a PC perspective I Medina wholesome and I'm. And today we have to Itt all-stars, call you their homes in quarantine. Yes. Yes. From Winston Salem North Carolina is Tina Vazquez but she's a senior reporter with prism and a twenty twenty I to be wells fellow with type investigations. Welcome back. Tina. High for happy ache and joining us from Atlanta Georgia is the fabulous Russia. Brown Co founder of black voters matter what's up? I'm so happy to be back. All is well and we're so. We're so happy to have you back to. so it's been. Intense that's kind of. An understatement in China. Living here has been intense in this country from the pandemic to racist police violence I mean even this Sunday, there was a five point one earthquake in North Carolina where you Live apparently the largest and over a century. Right. Here in Harlem trees fell down last week because of the storm. So this is just a very first question to ask you how you doing. So Tino, we're going to start with you how you feeling I am tired all the time like I can't complain really too much everything is. Fine but I'm very tired. Okay. Yeah. Short and sweet the TASHA. Who would be a podcast in itself I told you I. Felt. New podcast. How feeling? Is. What. I am I'm having actually every human emotion you can have, and I'm having an all at the same downtime. I'm angry, sad, scared frustrated hopeful fired up every motion human emotion. You can have I'm having and this moment of few weeks ago I myself actually tested positive for covert Nineteen Latasha. It. was the most nerve wrecking name Sweetie. It so I'm here for you sweetie. Oh you understand. Thank you so much and I'm so glad that you are will I had a mild case of but I think more than anything. It's the worry because you don't know how it's going to respond to Matty and then I'm worried about people being around me and being around my family. So I am just petitioning for a twenty two over I was just like a lot of talk to about this. Talk to the manager I need to recite twenty. She's a woman by the way. Exactly I know. So listen. I know first of all, thank you for sharing that. Latasha and. My heart goes out to you for anyone has to go through that especially in this time but we do want to discuss the twenty twenty election. It's less than eighty five days away. As if we're not on edge enough this year and honestly I'm going to come in as the Puerto Rican reporter. I have news to share with everyone in the world.

States on election day November but we want to talk about the power of voters of color and the issues of voting rights. The backdrop of this election season is the coronavirus pandemic. There are now five million confirmed covid nineteen cases in this country, and the number of those infected has doubled since the end of June and then we still have to mention. Joe Biden's comments last. Thursday during a joint. National Association of Black Journalists and a BJ and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists which was an h j of what he said. What you all know. But most people don't know unlike the African American community with notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With incredibly different attitudes about different things. This completely overlooks sees issues of race identity ideology, intersectional communities, I honestly think that this kind of statement, the trump campaign's like bring it on because it's just GonNa be used to divide and conquer Democratic voters.
Cyber Safety, How to keep your identity protected using mindfulness and practical tactics
"How you doing Sandra? Hi. How are you doing? Thank you for having been your show. So, matty here. Right absolutely. So we're talking today about identity and cyber. Theft here. So give us a little bit idea on what that's about what does identity theft what is cyber theft? What does all that stuff? Of course? Let me start why I started. Niger, any may be. Definitely will get into into whether they cybersecurity are cybercrime or identity out. That okay with you. Sure. So I was returning a many many years ago I was returning from these things. Colombian. So I mean, the plane were landing in Miami and the pound announces that Homeland Security. Were boarding the plane. I course to ask for a handed to the to the agent and at the time I, head out these. It was relocated recently to the US. Ns I had my passport to the agents. then. He's next thing I know I'm the only one that being score of the plane by the two officers. And enthroning to the room you the. Famous rooms. that. Are In airports in I, don't know what's happening. Out. I'm about to connecting fighting my husband's waiting for Chico. So ten hours later and handed back my passport and is revoked. Few weeks later I mean Venezuela my native country and I'm trying to process my. Mom to processing again, you sign I had a lot of support from Maya Turks from my former employer journey. So we are in to again and. It was interesting officials. They kept asking me about China. Why we're doing China. China who is your contact? Like I never been in China. beating know what they were talking about. Some how when? S Model China go to hold of my information and was smuggling women into the US using my identity. Yes. So humid slate, you know everything I convinced, of course, a smuggler I gave my new visa and a back home two weeks later and returning from Euro my job requirement to travel a lot. And as we are going to. Control. I. Give My passport booth. I'm right back into that room. Because I have to. The, real me over and over that for six years. Yeah. So when I going everything was Chinese I. Mean it was really crazy at nobody wanted to travel with me a united in my almost wanted to travel with me. and. Finally. made the citizenship, my aspirin I changed my. Everything Courses Okay and at the time I was working tonight not. Having in the industry for over Twenty Years Community? It non no it was identity. It was not in the news. He was not like every day right now at breach or cyber drive or this or that. Back back in that day in that time, it wasn't so I couldn't make the connection. So few years later, I changed my career and I join cybersecurity cybersecurity? Area. Industry. And I realized what happened to me, and what happened you know when someone takes your identity with Tony, personage you for their gate. and. You know eat my corporate career I did that I? was very passionate about. Training and education awareness and Allison Park job that I enjoy the most. So I wanted to Redo it at a bigger scale as I left my corporate all by did your original question about what is at Know when stolen takes something from you. And wince when they break into your life, and that can be very dramatic experience and it can be for many reasons financial reasons it could be for. Someone inside your company that has. Either made a mistake or by attention. Jober that is you and ninety. Attack you could be for like in my case, there was a vying for for that criminal to have my identity so he can use it for him. So there are many life happens. It's It goes on all the time. We don't always hear about identity theft on the news I might do commercials about it. You know when the advertising different products, but it's something that a lot of us don't even really hear about. So how does that happen? How does someone? Get your information. So you can happen. Through many different things that can happen through your social media, it can happen through your email can happen through when you give out your credit card in a restaurant. It could happen when when when you ride formation with with a doctor. Often, office I mean, there are so many ways. Jury information can be obtained. We share a lot in social media share. Many different things. That are personal and that that is one thing that can use. Of you do that. You know sometimes we don't hear the news a lot about identity issue i. think we should do a because there's a new victim, every two seconds. A new victim I mean someone right now? has just being victim of identity DOPP and there's different decrease appointed. You know sometimes we someone let's say takes your credit car. And data charges in your credit card and probably most have had situation and the bank context you. Just have to get a new credit car. Scare of it. So it's a degree of identity theft is in the financial. Hesitation of identity theft, but it is. Your credit car on and bought things on your behalf. But it wasn't as faithful as many other situations are obviously. More were personnel or or moines more invasive.

"Energy behind the ongoing protests in the city of Detroit renewed on Friday after a fatal shooting, involving an officer near San Juan and mcnichols on Detroit's west side.

The Squishy, Slimey Science Of ASMR
"Okay. So matty yes. Ma'am our tour guide through the world of is Julia Puerto. We're going to hear from her in a bit. She is a real life person who experiences. Asmar Real live one and researches it s Mars not exactly a big field of scientific study and it's only been a thing in public discussion for about a dozen years. That's about win. In two thousand seven people began to find each other and build communities online calling this feeling they had Asmar so these people just like get relief. Zenda out by whispering. There's a whole host of different triggers for different people. It could be whispering soft tapping rustling of paper. There seems to be a visual component to all of this not always things like slow movements delicate hand gestures can induce an. As Amar experience one of the most popular a s M artists on YouTube. That's what the people who make these. As videos on liner called is a darling here. She has quietly touching a little house. Housemate of Legos with her fingernails. Yeah here she is unwrapping a starburst is a starburst and mean unwrapped my personal favorite here. She is counting down slowly in a whisper from one thousand nine ninety these videos Vega millions of views on Youtube six. When you and I hear this we hear it but for some people they feel it. And that's what happens for Julia and those who experience asm art. It's a little bit like music juice chills or orange spot. Chill so sometimes you know if you haven amazing speech like Martin. Luther King's speech. You might get those kind of those goosebumps those shivers up your spine. Which is really kind of complex emotional aesthetic response to some people experience other people diners so this is young woman doing this in. You're like looking at her face and she's really close to the camera. It seems very intimate. Is this like? Is this a sex thing? On to be honest. That was my initial thought to. I don't experience I assume are Julius said based on studies she's done monitoring those who do not the feeling of getting turned on eight. I'll research we of course measured people's heart rates and on average heart rate decrease when people watched a small fires which is exactly the opposite of what you would expect. If it was somehow sexually arousing why but that makes me feel better about it it. Is it something else? So it's not like this sexual feeling what is it like in the brains of people who experience it. What's going on? We don't actually know what is happening. Truly in the brains of people who experience it nor how many people experience it at all the important thing to know here is. There isn't a ton of scientific research on this topic. There is one study though that really interested Julia. It's a two thousand sixteen paper by Canadian researchers that looked at the brains of people who experience Asmar when their brains run a restful state basically not doing anything and they looked at this specific network within the brain. Something called the default mode network which is associated with things like daydreaming in mind wandering and also self-referential thought and what they found was the essentially that they thought that the brain network activity at rest shows that the less able to inhibit sensory emotional responses. Basically they were less able to separate the link between what their senses are picking up and what they're feeling in their bodies sensory emotional experiences weren't as suppressed. Okay that makes sense to me. They experienced their sensors in a different way. Then like I experience my son says or something like that kind of like I said. This is one of many early studies. And what's also interesting is how people are experimenting with new. Asmar triggers on the Internet. Remember the using I mentioned earlier. Yeah I remember that it was unfortunate. I have with me in my hand Something that produces sound and I'm going to introduce it to you. Oh Nice little bit of flare. So what I'm holding in. My hand is slime Flown technically slime with little foam pieces inside to hear that. Yeah I can hear in the last few years. There's been booming videos of people manipulating slime. It'll have color or glitter or charms next into it. People gotten very creative with their slimes fun to play with and it also has a sound not doing it for you know. It's not doing something in. You are shrinking in your seat. I try and get as far away from me as possible. I don't I don't like it. You WanNA play with it. I mean you. Why don't you start one? I brought this in because if you search Hashtag. Mr Instagram right now. Guess how many posts come up. Six seven point six million. Oh my God I in the past not vast majority but a number of them are videos of people. Doing exactly what you're doing right now. Just manipulating slime making these satisfying squishy downs. Are there groups of people who experience an anti are like instead of feeling sued? Right now I feel very unsettled in my belly hurts. That would be called MS phony different episode. We wanted to ask our scientists Julia. If slime is a bona fide trigger for Asmar mean there are parallels. Probably people who experience `small would experience a small watching things like slime videos however one thing I would say is the actually. There's been quite a lot of interlocking between different trends. So s Marin slime and things buying have all kinds of mcbain started in South Korea broadcast people eating food while talking to their audience. With high quality microphones. What a nightmare. The Internet slime and things like Bon of MS piggybacked onto the small trend. So sure what under the sometimes category on the Internet of oddly satisfying. Yeah although hashtag asthma. Because I suspect it is piggybacking on us as kind of Tom to get people to watch videos so when you see a video of someone. Let's say cutting soap or cookie. Someone playing with really pretty slime. That may be oddly satisfying. But if you don't have the brain tangles it's not ASAMARA. That's talking to you at the same time. Julia said that the more Mars linked to things like slime videos. That could change what it means for people on the Internet. She's focused though on the world of science and has a lot of outstanding questions. Why do some people experience it and others? Don't why do some people experience it at a higher intensity than others and also and this is really interesting to me? What is the effect of? Asmar on sleep. So we know anecdotally that people who experience `small use these videos on Youtube to help go to sleep and I guess the question is will y y does is more help you go to sleep and another important question with regards to sleep is does it not only help you get to sleep but it does also improve the quality of your sleep so for some people. This might be like the Modern Day. Version of counting. Sheep Says County. One thousand nine hundred ninety
How Does That Feel?
"Privilege and the honor to meet for the First Time. A remarkable little boy that. I wanted to make for the moment. I heard his story his name is Mattie Stepanov and I hear he's an extraordinary person. He's only eleven years old. I've spoken to him on the phone several times but today's the first time we're actually meeting in person. Here's Maddie story. I want people to know Ma knife philosophy to remember to play after every storm. Maddie's Depan it is an extraordinary eleven-year-old living through difficult storm. He was born with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. He feel it in your muscles. You feel muscle pain DMC around. I need my wheelchair I I need. Oxygen Maddie's mom ginny also. Has the disease did not discover until after she had had four children. Katie died when she was two years old stevie died at six months of age and Jamie died when he was four years old. Manny has miraculously just turned eleven which nobody would have ever guessed possible from a very young age. Mattie was special even while tethered to oxygen he earned a junior black belt in martial arts and now he home schools at the eleventh grade level but his real gift is the poetry he writes. I have a song deep in my heart. I right to express my thoughts my feelings. I want people to think a few poems are fine but most of them are so that we can understand how we need to listen to our hearts songs and spread page with each other. You hear the word heart songs a lot in his poetry heart song is your inner beauty. It's the song in your heart. That wants you to help. Make yourself better per sin and to help other people do the same. Mattie is a very unique spirit A lot of people would say he's an old soul spiritual and he's hopeful for something bigger than himself. When I grow up I not only want to be a pacemaker. I'll be other have stuff. Dan Malls at treat like my children for a boy so full of life. He came very close to dying this year. Mattie spent about five months and the Intensive Care Unit at Children's National Medical Center in DC came so custody debt. I saw in comedy great me into Heaven with his health failing and time running out mattis. Three lifelong wishes had not yet been granted. I had three wishes and they are one town. My Book published. I can spread the message. Be World to talk peace with my hero. Jimmy Carter and meet with a win. Free BODY GOT. I wish to books of poetry published in the last four months and with a phone call. Second wish came true. They picked up the phone and handed it to me. Was Jimmy Carter. It was so I couldn't believe it. Mattie was very sick clinging to life but he wanted to return to the comforts of home the day before he came home from the hospital. Mattie night parade very very hard and Matty's prayer was that he was coming home to live and all the bleeding it stopped. I call it a miracle. I really think I'm here for fish because in my life I've had so many close calls to dying even if it takes me one year or one thousand I have to. I was meant to do. Shares the Dow. So here you made in your thank you your everything I imagine you. This is your first time flying coming to yes. It was. What was that like for you? It was amazing from me. I mean even especially when we had to go through this huge cloud we would I saw cloud coming and I figured they would. Just go around it all of a sudden. I'm surrounded by white stuff. Fell like algebra fluffy more. Mellow fluffy marshmallow. That's that's my mom. However she was a little anxious right a little. Play it simply. That's putting it simply. How are you how is your health? How are you doing? I'm doing a lot better healthwise I'm doing very well. Excitement wise a lot of grownups. They tried to get you to let go of the three wishes but you held onto them. Yes because because they were things that will last forever going to Disney. Well and in a week having shopping spree day but being able to talk to Jimmy Carter being able to have my books. Publish- being able to talk to you here today nests forever. He's four so you've been writing poetry since you were. How old about three. Yeah I would go to my mom on the WHO would be typing on the computer. Either School were playing solitaire and I would say mommy. Can you write something down for me please? And to assure I would tell these poems and she would type them down for me and then when I learned to write and all so known that I was making poetry. What you were doing yes I would. I was shows expressing my feelings. I just saying what I felt like. I needed to stay home. I learned to write so I wrote end dictated and now most of the time. I just go to my computer type book some poems and so you started calling it heart songs because what was the song in my heart it was the CICCIO. My heart hurt. Song doesn't have to be a song in your heart even talking about Lavin peers. It can just be your suit can be your F- feeling some people might even call it a conscience even though that's not really what it is. It's your message what you feel you need to do. And everybody has it. Everyone no matter what it is it. It's still sings the same beautiful to peace and love but people now are fighting over. How are harp songs are different? But I don't need to be the same. A heart tongue zone need to be the same because everybody has different woods. Yes and that's the beauty. We are almost sake of gifts and each was has our inner beauty. No matter how we look I mean you're very beautiful for no but it's our interview. I read your first book the Now the Second Book Journey through hearts come out and I have my own favourite poems. I ask you. Where did these were these come from? Just they are my feelings life experience. I mean like I said when I was little outside Mommy. Can you type this up for me? Your your life experiences Mr Levin Euro dealings. Don't you think you're wise beyond your years? Don't you yes thank you. Yes
No, The Coronavirus Isn't Another Flu
"You're listening to shortwave from NPR. Madison Here with NPR science reporter paying long. Hey Ping Hey Mattie. How's life working at home for you? Hang Well Gladiolas Mattie good to hear your voice It's it's all right. You know I am Trying to work right next reconstructions and right now you might be able to hear a little bit of that noise in the background. I I do have a little pillow. Fort here to help so from my closet to your pillow for today. We're GONNA talk about an idea that's been in the air a lot lately that the krona virus is basically no worse than the flu. Thirty six thousand deaths a year. People Die Thirty six from the flu. But we've never closed down the country for the flu so you say to yourself. What is this all about? That was the president on Tuesday of this week. And so the estimated death toll last flu season in the US was about thirty. Four thousand people in experts say it can range from around twelve thousand deaths year to sixty one thousand deaths a year. By contrast the Krona virus has killed one thousand one hundred and twenty four people in the US. That's as of Thursday when we're taping this according to a Johns Hopkins Count but there is a problem with comparing the two diseases in this way especially at this point in time. Yeah it's tree. Mattie and one of the reasons is that our healthcare system is set up to deal with the flu every year. But what? It's not set up for is to deal with the current events on top of the flu. And so yeah like on purely rod numbers. More people have died from flu this year. But there is a lot of science and data that we've learned in the past three months and it suggests that the corona virus is not only a more dangerous disease. It's one that could hurt more people if it spreads unchecked. So this episode. We'll talk about that. Science and data how the Krona virus differs from the flu and why it could emphasis on could be even more dangerous to public health. Okay paying like we all do with these current virus updates. We need to be clear that the information in this episode is based on what we know right now as of March twenty six and most of what we're talking about today are estimates based on information. That's still evolving. Yeah so let's start with some symptoms flu versus Corona Virus. So this is one of the things that makes containing this illness so tricky. The most frequent symptoms of corona virus are fever dry cough fatigue and shortness of breath and those show up in both corona virus. The flu and people can also get diarrhea. But that's pretty rare and it's also something that can happened with flu and that's all information from the World Health Organization and of course it's very possible that there are symptoms out there that we haven't identified yet so for example. There's been some talk about people with Corona virus. Losing their sense of taste But that hasn't really been proven. Yeah right and of course. A huge concern is people who can pass this fires onto someone else without even knowing that they have it. Yes so let's talk about that. Let's talk about transmission so basically how flu and Crow virus passed from one person to another so flu and current a virus or both ought to be spread mainly through close contact with other people who have it so you can kiss them or they can coffin you and the droplets that come out of their noses and mouths can get into your nose and your mouth and make you sick. So that's why CD's recommending keeping a physical distance of about six feet away from other people right now right right but there is one big difference. And that's the flu can be transmitted through what we call. Airborne transmission people can offer sneeze in a room and then other people can come in and breathe in like super tiny particles of virus and get sick and obviously that type of transmission can be really hard to protect against exactly and while public health officials have said they don't think that's what's going on with occur virus community so far they are still trying to figure that out. Okay Ping so. Let's talk about how many people one person can in fact figuring that out is part of figuring how contagious diseases. There's some numbers that have been reported on the lot even seeing them in the news. But we're going to put some of that. Sweet sweet shortwave nuance in there for you. Yes shortwave where caveats are very welcome. Always okay so matty. If you look at the data from China it looks like each person. Infected WITH CORONA VIRUS. Seems to give it to two or two and a half other people on average and that is higher than the flu so person with flu only spreads it to about one point. Three other people and again that's on average. Yeah and we have to be really careful with those numbers how many people one person will infect is this average based on an equation and for Corona virus a lot of the factors that go into that equation. Like how long? Somebody's contagious. How much virus it takes to get. People sick are still unknown so that to two point five number is a rough number and it is extremely likely that that number will change for better or for worse right yeah and this one was calculated again looking at populations in China not the US and things like weather. People ride crowded subway to get around or whether cheek kissing is a common greeting. You know things like how people behave. And how many people come in contact with that can change that number. And that's why social distancing is so key right now all that being said today Dr Anthony Voucher one of the top public health officials in this country told Steph curry and NBA Point Guard. Because that's the world we live in now is much more transmissible than the flu in part of that has to do with one of the most important and honestly scary things about the corona virus that people can be contagious before they have symptoms so before they themselves. No they're sick. This also happens with the flu. But it's only for about a day right. That's what we were just mentioning that. He and with Corona virus seems like people can walk around for longer not knowing that they're sick and potentially getting other people sick so we still don't know a lot about this yet but one study looking at a bunch of provinces in China found that about thirteen percent of their cases were likely caused by people spreading the corona virus to others before they started coughing or having a fever or getting achey. Yeah and what's really wild about it and I've only seen this in this one study. Is that some of the people who got infected had symptoms before the person that infected them so it would be like if I was contagious. And I didn't know and I came to work and infected you and you had symptoms before I ever done and if you think about it. Mattie from a public health perspective so hard to deal with it's part of the reason why some people are really advocating for testing a lot of people who may have been exposed to corona. And not just the symptomatic ones. So let's talk about when you do get sick enough to go to the hospital. There's some evidence based on data from China that patients wind up in the hospital with Corona Virus. Than when it comes to the flu right it looks like about twenty percent of patients with cove in nineteen. Get seriously ill enough to be sent to the hospital. And that's about ten times the rate for flu. Here's Parker Hudson and epidemiologist at University of Texas at Austin Del Medical School where it's particularly concerning are the number of people who are progressing to need hospital level care and then eventually critical care and who are dying especially the extremes of age and we also have some data from China from Wuhan about how long people with the krona virus need to stay in the hospital. Once they wind up there. Yeah so based on information from Han in January the average hospital stay is eleven days for Corona Virus. And that's compared with five or six days for an average flu case. And when you have a patient using a hospital bed for that length of time. That's the bad that can't go to a flu. Patient or someone with a heart condition or someone in a car accident suggest because this is a new disease for our healthcare system. It doesn't mean that all the other reasons people end up in the hospital usually just magically go. Yeah and not only that based on the stories we've been hearing from Er Doctors Hospital. Nurses caring for Corona virus. Species takes a lot of work yet. It's true so an expert at the world. Health Organization says that taking care of intensive really unwell corona virus patients. It can take two to three medical staff at one time all in protective gear for hours and hours and that is super social work. And don't even get me started on the amount of disposable gloves masks and gowns that takes because we've all been hearing about that shortage and it's a whole separate
Exploring The Canopy With 'TreeTop Barbie'
"Hey everybody matty Safai. Here was shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong today. We thought you might appreciate a little joy in your life especially now that's right here on short wave we want to bring you up. Does it explain what's happening with the corona virus but also episodes that feature other interesting science like this one from the very first week of shortwave. It's probably one of my favorites. Oh yeah mine too. It's got rain. Forests SLINGSHOTS A DECADE-LONG CONFLICT WITH BIG Barbie bad gets rope burn. Let's not love the rope? Burn Kwong it's clearly the roburt. These are the sacrifices you make manny right onto the show enjoy. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr One day this past summer I got to visit a rainforest. Okay that's licorice fern. That is the scientific name. Is Paula podium vulgarity? Ecologist NENAD CARNEY. This is called sledge. This is called Club Moss. It's actually very primitive Plant leaning has been studying in exploring ecosystems like this for thirty five years. Okay so that is called Bikram. That's another species of Moss. I like to call it pledging moss. Just because it's so soft and so please so much like a little pillow. Here's Flynn's this is recommend trim. There's like three four different species of MOSS RIGHT THERE. Couple other things about this rainforest. You're probably thinking rainforests so tropics now. We were in the Pacific Northwest Olympic National Forest in Washington state and it's called a temperate rainforest A. Rainforest because we get it's characterized by having a lot of rainfall there about one hundred twenty inches a brain a year. The other thing about this trip to the forest. Is that all these plants so see how soft these mosses are yes. Don't you just WanNa sleep on them? Yeah all of new weenies. Decades-long work. Okay I'M GONNA come up side by side with you. All of it is about wow sixty feet off the ground for many. This is awesome awesome. This is called the canopy pretty much everything above the forest floor all the way up to the tops of the trees. Come up with me now. Little Rope canopy. Here is a dizzying thicket of bright green leaves and Mosses and ferns all bathed in sunlight. And we knew very little about it because the canopy is literally called the last biotic frontier. It's been so poorly studied. It really aren't very many people who studied the canopy. Feel like when you say. The last biotic frontier should look off into the distance. Ready to the last biotic frontier so today on the show pioneering scientists Malini non Carney on the canopy plus a little later on in the episode weenies decades. Long fight to get more women into science. And how she found unlikely ally in Barbie. Yeah I thought it was weird too. It's not that we're the sticker up and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. Alright so let's back up down back on the ground in Olympic national forest. Malini told me that in the grand scheme of things canopy sciences. Actually PRETTY NEW. People have been studying forest for centuries but it's only been in the last twenty twenty five thirty years that people have actually climbed up into the forest canopy to understand the environment up in the tree tops. One of the hurdles for scientists was literally just figuring out how to get up to the tops of the trees so noelene a few friends figured out a way to adapt some mountain climbing techniques to get up into the canopy and that means shooting ropes into the trees. So I invented this thing called the master caster which is metal rod and we welded it so it has this little hole here for the line. Basically this master caster thing is part fishing. Rod Part slingshot. This looks like a garage sale. A fourteen year old boy's dream could both and and so with a fishing weight loaded into the slingshot. So I'm thinking right up there. Malini cast masterfully. You we set the ropes now on your weight on this got harnessed in step down and then started the long hard process of inching up the road. You're going to go into a crouch and lift your legs up. That's kind of like a caterpillar and then San exactly you. Well you know. I've got to kind of over. The course of her career researching canopies in the Pacific northwest as well as in the forest of Costa Rica. Malini has documented all kinds of things about the canopy sixty feet up this giant maple tree. She shows me one of the cooler ones. Just looking at the underside of these mosses like. There's this canopy soil Allowing Dig Samat over here. Malini peels back a thick fistful of Moss from the branch on the tree. Instead of bark we're looking at tightly packed bed of Brown dirt. I mean that has actual soil that is basically composed of the dead and decomposing. Moss's that live up here and there are like earthworms that live up. Here are a big round up exactly. It's called into canopy soil. Wow look at that. And it's a weird you know you hear smelling the soil smell. But you're you know you're up sixty feet above the forest floor. So it's it's this sort of whole world that the canopy creates they're living plants or mosses there ferns their soil and it's all kind of invertebrates that live here birds that forage for these invertebrates that live in the canopy soil. So it's like this microcosm this mini co system. That's going on kind of independent of the forest floor. But at the same time interacting the forest as a whole of course today canopies all over the world face threats from climate change from logging fire deforestation and a lot of work. Now is about trying to figure out what would happen. If we lost such a complex interconnected ecosystem. I think it's important for canopies to be as intact as possible. Because they do foster so much diversity that you can get seventy species of mosses on a single tree and each of those mosses sort of living life with its insects and invertebrates and supporting birds. And so it's just part of this sort of whole cycle of what makes a primary important. Here's another thing leany discovered when she was first getting started in canopy research. There were very few women. Scientists doing this kind of work and so she set out to change that this was. This was just a fabulous day. That happened in my lab forest. Canopy lab undergraduates worked there. My graduate students would work me and we were just kicking around by these. Look how could we make the forest canopy more meaningful to mattress other scientists but to regular people like how about young girls? They need encouragement. And somebody said. Well what about Barbie aright pause Barbie time because she was busy enough helping to basically create an entirely new field of scientific study in the early two? Thousands deleted decided. You know in her free time she would try to create market and get into the hands of little girls and boys everywhere treetop Barbie. What took iconic doll which is so symbolic of what young girls aspired to. What if we just put this shell around her? Which is a canopy biologist? So called Mattel the company that owns Barbie and then when I propose this idea they said no no no. We're not interested that has no meaning to us We make our own barbies. You know you can't do this. Forget it forget it. So that's when we said well. Why don't we just do it ourselves? And if Mattel's not going to take a couple of trips to goodwill later to get some recycled barbies with the Angela's making our top barbies. And I started bringing campy Barbie along with me and you know talking to my fellow scientists and saying look guys we not only have to do our good science we need to start encouraging people from outside science and and this is one way that we might do it trees are wonderful arenas for discovery this is Malini is two thousand nine tedtalk which by the way is a hugely nerve wracking thing for scientists. And you're hooked up to this hands-free Britney Spears Mike to give a talk. That will basically be your top. Google hit for life to stand on stage. Showing off a little plastic treetop Barbie. Should I really be spending time with this? Are PEOPLE GOING TO THINK? It's weird that me as a scientist and me as a woman scientist is a brown woman. Scientist is spending her time doing this. they're sort of risk. That goes along with that but I felt that the potential good that could come out of it of providing a real role model for a little girl. Who doesn't even know that that the canopy exists to study. You know like when I was a kid and so if that can happen then I think it's worth the risk what we do my students in my lab and is we buy barbies from goodwill and value village. We dress her enclosed that have been made by seamstresses and we send her out with a canopy handbook. And my feeling is thank you that we've taken this pop icon and we have just tweaked her a little bit to become ambassador who can carry the message that being a woman scientist studying treetops is actually a really great
Loving Your Gut
"Pepper. Thank you so much for coming in sitting down with us today. Yeah no problem. Glad to be here so what I want to talk to you about is a really big topic right now. And that's gut health. So could you tell us a little bit about why? It's such a big topic. Why is it so important yet? Gut Health is a new topic. Lots of new studies going on with gut health. A lot of people think well got health is digestive health. But it's so much more than that got. Health can also affect your immunity. It can affect heart health. It can affect brain health. You can affect weight management. There's so many things that it touches that it's very important for us and that's crazy that just this one little piece of our body and a piece of our digestive system can affect so many different things and caused us a lot of unhappiness. If we don't take care of it absolutely absolutely. Yeah I mean we we wanna take our digestive cells. We WanNa make sure that everything's moving in the right direction but then like you said it affects so many other things and we can get into that a little bit more but it it affects our brain so much and in effects are hard and affects so many things that function within our other systems. That it's very important So can you tell us a few signs what we can look forward to? Tel Afar is unhappy. Yeah I I'll first off. I want to just say if we feel like something's not right. You should go talk to a doctor that there's so many things that could be wrong. And so many things. That might not be wrong that I hate for people to self diagnose and then find out that they did it wrong so if you if you feel like something's off please go see a doctor but there's a lot of different things I mean. Obviously you can feel gas and you can feel bloating and you can feel abdominal pains but but there are other things like If you feel like they're pains that aren't going away or if their symptoms that aren't going away definitely go see a doctor absolutely and I think that's great advice so in the everyday support of our gut. You know when things may be aren't wrong. We're just trying to give it extra support to make sure that things continue to go along normally. What are some products? That Tara has that we can utilize. Those here has a lot of digestive health products in and they've been proven over the years for a lot of different people for a lot of different reasons and so first off. We have our digests in blend which is a blend of a lot of different essential oils all of which have benefits ended of themselves for digestive health. And so that's a great one to start with and we've also put that in a soft Gel for convenience sake so obviously if you if you feel like something's off in your stomach or you feel like hey I'm going over to at Matty's for for her and it's GonNa be a huge dinner. Hey let's take some digestion along with us just in case and so you have your soft gels For Convenience Sake as well we also have terrorism which is a digestive enzyme. Our stomach has to break down food and our intestines have to break down food. And there's all different kinds of foods. Most of US HAVE ENOUGH DIGEST. Sign digestive enzymes to be able to help us with this but some of US need a little extra help sometimes and so there are enzymes to break down proteins and breakdown fats. Enzymes to break down carbohydrates. And so you need all of those to help with an digestive insights has all those all in one package. So it's great if you again if you're planning on a heavy meal or a heavy protein meal or something like that it's nice to hasn't digestive enzymes with you. Which is our terrorism. We also have the digest tab which has the digestive Or the digestion. Blend in calcium carbonate tablet. Just very handy as well. Because the calcium carbonate tablet in and of itself has very powerful anti and acid properties and then with the digestion. In with it you got double the double the power so it's a great product. It's one of my favorites. We also have ginger tab or ginger drop that we just launched earlier this year. Everybody knows that ginger is great for to help with an upset stomach or or sour stomach. And so these tastes really great for those of you who love Ginger. And it's in a really tasty drop and so they're really handy as well but we launched something new last year which is a Heiferman Soft Gel. And there's a lot of studies on peppermint and how it can help with lower intestinal issues and so it's great to have this an enteric coated soft Gel. Because you need it to survive the stomach it needs. It needs to get through the stomach and get into the intestines where it can do. Its its job. And so that's why it's enteric coated. And here's what peppermint soft. Gel does the peppermint oil helps to relax the smooth muscles in in the lining of the intestines in the stomach. But you don't want that to happen to up to high because if it happens in your asaf against or in your in your throat then gas gets too high. And that's where you get heartburn and so when its enteric coated those gases are released and so it keeps them down lowered. They can't do any damage. Oh that's why enteric coated is so important for peppermint Parent Soft Gel. And that's and that's why that's such a great product. I want more people to know about that because it's a great product with a lot of science behind it. There's so many different studies. There's even some that have been done on children by what I want people to be careful when they give it to their children but there are some studies that show that peppermint oil can help with children and lower intestinal issues. So if you haven't checked that out check off Joe hipp it's online. It's for everyone to download and take a look at but all the cities that's great and so people can go online. They can look at these studies for themselves and dig into the research behind that if that's something they're interested in absolutely that's so great pepper. Thank you so much for explaining to us a little bit more about how the gut works. Why it's important and these incredible products that don't tear has available for people to help support their gut. You're welcome.
A Decade of Dzud: Lessons From Mongolia's Deadly Winters
"So for people. Who Don't know I totally know where is Mongolia? Mongolia is in Central Asia right between Russia and China. The landscape to me looks a little bit like a mixture between Montana and Mars if you can picture that delightful so this this time last year before you were short waves reporter. You don't like to think about that time. You went to Mongolia it's true. Why would one go to Mongolian winter all the travel guides discourage discourage it? I might discourage it but I purposely went there then because winter is at the heart of this whole story. So how cold are we talking here. It's super cold. uh-huh freeze your nose. Harris cold I actually had to tape. Hand warmers all over my microphone so it wouldn't freeze. Wow it is cold. Oh I found this piece of tape tape of me complaining about it minus eighteen degrees right now. This is really cool. I could tell me what you say. Cool coach it wasn't acting but some types of winters are so extreme matty that they actually have an official name so in Mongolian. It's called a zoo would that's when a winter tur- is so bad. It kills significant number of livestock in Mongolia or one out of four people make their living hurting. That has huge consequences. I mattie Safai and I'm Emily Kouanga today in the show. We had to Mongolia to learn about the brutal winters known as and how these natural disasters have changed enjoyed countries way of life okay so Mongolia is periodically affected by this extreme weather event. That happens in the winter called. What does this look like? Yeah so tender standard. I wanted to meet someone directly impacted. Divide it this man named Roy Eaton Gacek. He's a father of four super good bad Santa could do prates daughter's hair getting get somebody for school and everything. He was born a herder in eastern Mongolia and in January. Two Thousand Oilman as he tells it woke up at sunrise to check on his animals. Snow had fallen in the night about a foot. They were writing out a bad winter storm and he was really worried about is heard so how he cracked the door of his gear. Those are these circular felt cover tents that herders living and it was eerily quiet outside blindingly finding Lee white from all this snow. What did you see when he opens the door? Do not with this new household off. He's Carcass Saas new. Shut us a dozen of his sheep. Goats had died in the night. Those still alive yet about one hundred animals at the time. We're trying to find grassy but the land was literally locked in by snow. The hotel does ndas and it was really difficult to see this. He Sang. It was horrifying and it happened. Every few days boyens animals would succumb to starvation. Illness exposure and by the end of the winter he essentially lost his entire heard the type of food that came to his doorstep. It's called Saga which Mongolian means white death. While I think a loss at this level I imagine it's not purely financial absolutely I mean this. This isn't the same but there are dairy farmers in my family and you kind of like build relationship with your cows you literally like have them from birth to death so I have imagine it would be devastating like on multiple levels if you just slowly lose them over time right. They're not just economic assets and the loss of those animals is a social loss. It's spiritual loss experts. I spoke to in Mongolia. Described as a slow onset natural disaster different from a rapid rapid onset natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. So how many other herders were affected by the white death that year that year the two thousand six it claimed claimed about three and a half million livestock. Wow quite a bit law. It's eleven percent of the national hurt. And when you consider that at the time one out of every two households made their living hurting. It's significant begin. Animals represent wealth. So it would be as if your life savings were too slowly disintegrate. So what did the herders actually do in response Some rebuilt their heard those who could but others who lost everything they left gave up hurting fled the countryside seeking jobs in in urban areas uprooting. Their lives are good hurting Dad Johansen hair braided guy. He was one of those who left. Almost your short could the mother oh well many migrated. He's saying because it was impossible to make a living and it shows in the population and barter that's Mongolia's capital it has has tripled in the past thirty years exploded. Zid is one of the many migration drivers bringing people to the city. And I could see this when I lived there. I was reporting reporting and living in his apartment building and I looked off my balcony window. The hills were just covered in Gares. Those felt covered tents that herders live in. It was a picture. Sure of all of these people who had moved to the city and settled there and the city. Just couldn't contain all the new arrivals or does it still happening as it. On this scale that hits every corner of the country not that common prior to two thousand had happened about once a decade but was weird about two thousand is. It happened the next year and the next year and again again in two thousand ten so by the end of the decade there were forces and twenty one million livestock died in that period it totally overwhelmed Mongolian people that government tens of thousands of families packed up and left. That's that is horrifying of what is going on. Like what is causing US okay. So it's tempting to blame climate change and that is in fact the biggest culprit in this whole affair. Mongolia is indeed a warmer drier. Replace than it was eight years ago. But what I found is that zoot is actually caused by cocktail of other factors like over-grazing and deforestation. Basically quickly anything that destroys. The grassland is bad for animals. You need that grassland lending food it's a goat's buffet table and to not have it sets them up for good because this summer is a time when they fatten up. And if the grass is gone from drought or other things they're even more vulnerable when the winter is bad. Oh little bit of science here yes. The drought okay. Means less grassland and in Mongolia less grassland creates even more drought vicious cycle. Yeah because Mongolia. It's land locked all right. So the vast majority of precipitation rain snow. It comes from the land it comes from the grass. Water is transpired by plants into the atmosphere so so without grass Mongolia is even drier so given all of this is hurting still considered a good way to make a living in Mongolia. I think Mongolians are trying to figure that out. There's fewer herders but they're better prepared and trying to manage the Paschel and more sustainably local communities training herders to brace for a bad winter. Do things like make extra. Hey for their animals to eat. Purchase Livestock Insurance and pool there resources so the individual costs aren't so high all right so that that sounds great but are herders still kind of on edge. Are they like Shariq. Dowd anticipating the next. You know so I used to report in Rural Alaska inefficient community and herders. They kind of remind me of fishermen they know they're at the mercy of the weather but they're very tough and resourceful within their own lives and herders are doing the same. They're trying to make the most of what they have. They're kind of cultural heroes for practicing this way of life. That's become increasingly less common in the state. Broadcaster actually gives these awards to the best herders in in the nation. Please tell me you went to a best herder award ceremony absolutely went to a buzzer award ceremony. The championship herder. Who I met in the province was this man named near Goo Davidoff and I talked to him right after he got his award? Lord of host was also he was practical. Nature is unpredictable. It's harder there's less rain. Animals can't get fat but if we prepare extra hey. We can overcome such natural disasters. We don't have to be afraid this spring their animal's gave birth to hundreds of babies. I went back to visit during the birthing season in March. This pen is just full like a hundred lambs. Just these tiny little cotton balls near to make us feel better about this. Do you mind no. I just don't appreciate being manipulated. I wanted to show you the opposite right so not death life and what it signals for the next generation of herders. Who are continuing to do this? I'm picking up what you're putting down on. Thank you all right. I'm Lequan thank you for bringing us the story.
The "Thank You Project"
"We got the chance to speak to Nancy Davis Co and she's the author of a book called the thank you project in two thousand sixteen. Nancy celebrated her Fiftieth Fiftieth Birthday. And she wanted to do something to mark that milestone so she started writing. Thank you letters to all of the people and places and things that the difference in her life little did she know that spending one year writing these thoughtful letters would have such a profound impact on her every week. I sat down on Friday afternoons to write my one letter and I would sit and fill up a page about why somebody had been important in my life and I could physically feel my shoulders relaxing. My Jaw clenching. Just a sense of calmness and peace would wash over me and I realized that the gratitude letters were helping me refocus every week. I could think no matter. How many horrible things that happened that week I could think okay? I have this one person in my corner and it was just a really amazing way to do a reset Nancy. I'd love to hear an example of one of the letters you wrote sure I'd love to share one. That didn't make it into the book but I really enjoyed writing this to my daughter's pediatric nurse. Her name's Jen And I wrote dear dear John. I'm writing because I turned fifty last year and decided to write a thank. You note to fifty people who have made a difference in my life for the care. Consistency and compassion compassion. You've shown Mattie and Lucy as pediatric nurse since they were each only a few days old I had to include you on that list. Your reassurance and skill have made my job as their mom easier. And I'm deeply grateful for that. You and I have probably stared together at those children on the Exam Table One hundred times in the past eighteen years but there there are a few visits that really stood out to me was when Matty was about ten months old and you said I just love seeing how you two are together. It was a tiny sentence tints but it was such a confidence boost to a new mom from a professional who saw moms and their children all day. Long whether you meant it or not I took it as a sign that I was doing. Okay with my a baby girl. I also remember that horrible period when Lucy was five weeks old and was hospitalized with. RSV She came through it unscathed. But when I brought her in for checkup a couple of days after she was discharged. You took one look at me and understood what I was unable to say out loud. I was about three feet past the end of my rope and gasping for help and and you saw that and you rescued me. I believe the prescription was for my husband to get both girls out of the house so I could sleep uninterrupted for basically a day I consider that nap. The only reason I didn't and fall into postpartum depression my kids are thriving and confident and hardworking and smart and I remember occasionally but never enough to give thanks that they are healthy on top top of it for your role and keeping them that way. I am so grateful with thanks Nancy. You're so specific. You gave very specific compliments and very specific examples. Well the Nice thing I learned in writing the book I really wanted to understand the science behind. Why gratitude letters worked on me so well and one of the things they talk about as positive recall bias? So what that means is you can train yourself to look for positive things by looking for positive things so it's really like working gratitude muscle and it got. I loved that part of trying to figure out specifically what it was. I think you're right. I'm sure Jen saw seventy seventy kids a day or however many hersler her caseload was. She doesn't remember the specifics but I can remember them because I only had two kids and I know every time time they were sick and she was so reassuring that it was it made my job easier and that was the kind of thing I wanted to make sure she understood Nancy. So you talk about how transformative this was to yourself. You just told us about how physically affected you but I want you to take us back to your first letter you you know. Who did you write it to? What were you feeling when you were writing it? How did you start you know? Take us back. I wanted to start with my mom in part because she she has dementia. I felt that there was some time urgency to that. Thank you mom. Thank you for being such that. You'll warm affectionate supportive. Funny Mother someone who pulled off the deceptively simple trick of creating a home that served both as a sanctuary and a launch pad for. Sally Larry Gary and me a joke about it with my writer friends. My parents were so nice. They didn't give me any material to write a memoir about but they know I know and you know that our family family life was the best gift you could ever give me one of the things that I realized as I wrote wrote to her is that I needed to apologize to her. Because I had this fiction my head that I was really easy kid for her to raise that I had not given her any problems. well as a mom of two two teenage girls at the time I knew that that could not have been true. It's just not it's not humanly possible for a teenage girl to not give her mother some grief. So Oh that really was the first instance but not the last where forgiveness came into play with this project. Because when you're thinking about someone on who has made a difference in your life maybe there are old resentments that you're holding onto or you think well this person does all these good things for me. But they haven't shown for me in this other way and found that writing. The letters really fostered a sense of forgiveness toward the people I was writing and in some cases it really made me WanNa make amends. It made me WanNa be a better friend a better relative because I've been the beneficiary of so much kindness in my life I think an essay I read a couple of years ago about a woman who feels herself becoming invisible to her family realizing that she's like air who thinks about air air but then again what do you do without it. I'm saying now what I was too young and dumb to understand. Then you are the root source of the happiness and stability in in my life you have always taught me so much from the flash cards that may be an early reader to that moment when I was twenty two to last week when you and dad took my aunt to the doctor and showed me once again what familial love and devotion should look like. I love you mom. I'm just so incredibly lucky to be your

"I just WanNa ask view a very important question a question that your co workers and your managers in your CEO and and the people down in human resources probably haven't asked you in a very long time if ever did you have for breakfast this morning. Did you have breakfast. I know it's a cliche but it's the most important meal the day how you supposed to function without a ninety spread fast picture this you're cruising along towards work. You had to rush that morning to get out yet. Shower and shave powder up the undercarriage get some deodorant on spray yourself down with whatever it is used I used to make yourself smelled good and stay nice and fresh unclean during the day and you had to get. The kids is ready and you just couldn't be late for work and you were worried about the traffic and you just had to get yourself in the car and go go. You barely had time to even think about yourself. You barely had time. You didn't even have time time to tend to your own needs and unfortunately in today's fast pace cutthroat a bottom line market driven data research work. Place they don't seem to care they don't seem to wonder. Hey did matty Kay get a piping hot nutritional breakfast this morning did did he get something into his stomach that his body can draw upon for energy as he completes his numerous daily tasks let me put in parentheses here. I generally don't complete my numerous daily tasks which has has been causing some Questionable evaluations at the office. But I'm not gonNA worry about that right now. I'm talking about breakfast. I'm talking about eggs. I'm talking about Bacon. I'm talking about maybe some Hash. Browns may be some pancakes Maybe some waffles you know so many of us. Just wait until the weekend to enjoy those things. That really shouldn't be the way is we should be able to enjoy hot nutritious breakfast every single day of the week it. It doesn't matter if we show up at nine. AM or nine fifteen or nine thirty or sometimes like I do at quarter past. I eleven I have to take time to have myself a nice breakfast. This is America. Aren't we entitled to One Nice Breakfast. Isn't that in the constitution. Somewhere isn't isn't it in the bill of rights or the Declaration of independence. It's gotta be in there somewhere a nice hot breakfast. Here's what I do. I go down to the kitchen. I heat up the frying pan. Put the burn around a little bit low. I spray it down with some of that nonstick Pam. And then I take. Oh maybe maybe maybe half a tablespoon of butter and I put in there and I let it melt. Okay Wow I'm letting it melt. I cut up a red pepper. I cut up some onion. I might cut up a little bit of garlic and I ta Awsat in the Pan. I I let that sizzle not a Roma that fills the kitchen. It just puts you right back in that good save spot. You feel. You'd feel sh that's how you feel. How can you be stressed out out when you've got some nice peppers and onions and garlic cooking? Then I take three eggs always three I crack into the bowl. I- wisk them together. Because I like my eggs scrambled you might like yours fried. You might like yours over easy you might like gears over medium you might like that yoke nice and hard. It's up to you. You're in control. So much of our lives lives seem like they're out of our control. You know where we can get some control back breakfast. I let those peppers and onions sizzle and then when I do is I cut up a little bit a ham not a whole lot a little bit and I throw it in therefore some flavoring. I let that all cook for a bed while that does I just contemplate Alec out the window. I might see the neighbor's cat creep in through the yard. He doesn't have anywhere to be. He's working but he's not working for the man man it's working for himself. He's out on the hunt. I think about his day. What he's doing during the day probably probably more satisfying than looking at spreadsheets or filling out insurance forms being customer service service or dealing with HR? It's probably more satisfying than that. I let my breakfast Cook Doc. I put the eggs on top of the peppers and onions garlic and I just let it sit. I just let it cook. Keep the heat on low. Why why not in a hurry? Just let it cook on load on scored Shit. That's what happens when you go too fast. You scorch things. That's why I'm always is telling people in the office. Slow it down POW PUT IT in neutral coast a little bit. That's what I do. Then I take a little bit of shredded cheese Cheddar sprinkle it on those eggs and this is what I do. I flip it over Kinda Hannah Omelettes. Style it's just about ready. It's just about ready. I put a little toast in light. I keep the toasting light. I don't like it to be too hard in crispy. I like a little bit of soft. You know by the time the toast host pops up and I put butter on the eggs are ready to come out of the PAM. Then what I do what I do kind of the last touch watch I take the plate right. I heat it in the microwave for about thirty seconds that way. I haven't Nice warm played for my nice hot breakfast activist eggs on the plate. Sausage goes on the plate. Toast goes on the plate. I didn't mention the sausage sometimes. Sometimes I do sausage. Sometimes I do him. I put it on the table. I've got the salt pepper ketchup. I like cash upon my eggs. I know not everybody buddy. Does some people do the hot sauce. Some people just do salt and pepper. Some people do nothing again. It's up to you. You decide. You Wanna put mustard on your eggs Gerrad you WANNA put mayonnaise on their your prerogative. You won't have any judgment from the working experience. podcast certainly certainly not from matty. Kay you you have those eggs how ever you want I sit down I let it cool off. I don't rush. I don't have to dive right in there. sheriffs get on to be about eight thirty. I haven't shower shower yet. I haven't shaved haven't done any of that sherm probably going to be kind of late. Yeah we have a meeting. I might miss it. I'm probably going to have to hear about that. I I could have my breakfast right. I got to ease don't I I mean. Of course I do not really do I you you don't you don't have the privilege of eating breakfast. You have the right to eat breakfast. I I'm sorry sh getting a little strident here getting a little angst ridden. But when I think about your rights as an American to have breakfast not being respected I got to admit it gets me a little upset. But we're not here to be upset. We're here to talk about breakfast. I put the salt on. I put the pepper on. I put the catch up on. I sprinkle a little Tabasco on there. I put a little bit of Jelly on my toast hallway. Sometimes I've peach preserves. Sometimes I have strawberry depends depends on what I'm in the mood for. I keep a few different jars in the refrigerator so I have a variety. 'cause that's the spice of life and Oh do I enjoy that breakfast It's hot. It's nutritious not only for my body but for my soul I just feel better. I had the little bit of cranberry juice with I. Mix It with a little bit of water because I don't like it to be too sweet. I've Little Cup of coffee with it. Nothing extravagant I'm not asking for the world here in either you. You're just asking for some breakfast breakfast so you can be the best you that you can be so folks. I'll just leave view with this. Make sure that you are taking care of you. That's the best the way for you to ensure that you're happy not that your boss is happy not that managers happy not not that. Your Co workers are happy or some supply person. You're supposed to talk to or someone you're supposed to send a spreadsheet to how you you have to make sure you are happy if you're not eating breakfast if you haven't tried this it's it's a game changer. Trust Old Matty Kay on that. If there's one thing I know it stuffing my face you.

"We're back at the races I just I just saw traumatises tweet trumpeting. His his visit he. He says that I've bumped him twice. I think only really once I think just one other time was was. There was some question whether whether the timing was gonNA work but either way it's one of the most anticipated separated conversations after Breeders Cup the Paul Matisse Postmortem and getting into all the vets that work the vets. That didn't didn't what we were right about. What was unexpected? Go morning on the that. You're finally want let me out beyond California and you hang around with those movie stars and you've had the great gambler philosopher only the battler says. You've you've changed if I'd really changed I would've I would've stayed out there because I do love. I do love being out there and this this series of races Paul it always. It's always dissipated disappinted. And some of the best typically some of the best betting opportunities of the year but one observation. The came up. The last couple of days is is that the money was pretty smart about a lot of a lot of horses and that included Bella Fina and without parole role. I mean not necessarily winners but horses that that were bet and ended up running well first before we talk specific races. What was your overall impressions Russians? Well that's one of the overall impressions I had was that even though we've heard that the The horses didn't handle the the tracking and whatever the the you know the force of the highest figures fared pretty well and you know for the most part form held up pretty good. You know a couple of horses you mentioned there. We live in a different world. You know with Workout reports and and such. I would add spun. The run probably a little bit to that category too. You know the You know we have better information. I mean a horse like Without Parole The the Chad Brown horse you know all every these workout people were on top of the fact that he was working working with bricks and mortar you know and add holdings beating them actually beating them and you know and you can watch it to you know we have. XP TV TV which is a an incredible service. I know we probably are a little jaded and take it for granted nowadays but you know this stuff was is unheard of not even that long ago so so you gotta expect a little bit changes where the money is going to be. The money is going to be better. You know we're doing on an everyday basis. The money's better that's a great point that's a great point and I I would also include the understanding that is certain horses says aren't working at as well as might have been anticipated and people. I see people that are dismissive of the workout information. And they say well everyb- everybody's working good. Everybody is working well L. enough summer working significantly better or noticeably just a little less and that might be enough differential when you're building tickets other. You know the other thing where we we. Don't get to see the horses as much you know work out with you and I've talked about this before. Workouts are more important now. Because was it used to be you. You saw the horse run two weeks ago so he didn't care about how he trained. You know. I mean if you watch the Seattle flu win the you know the the Marlboro you don't worry about how he's training into the Jockey Club. It was only twelve days ago. You know fourteen days ago You know it's different now. I mean a lot of these sorts of hadn't run since some of them hadn't runs in Saratoga or Delamarre so you have to You know you're you're look it. You're you're looking at a completely different horse in some cases so you need you need that kind of information you know and you trust especially especially that the the crackers. A- ah they'll probably on some you know on this on a daily basis the clocking information we get should be better but when it comes to the good horses did you know you. You can't fault it. I mean it's incredible my favorite part of for the invariably. Is You know it was with the young horses purses and on an everyday basis on the first years and then when you combine for you know for me to try to sniff out a price thing about Saratoga season for for instance in del Mar it helps to see an obscure horse. That may come from less high profile L. connections that's working well and then when I see that combines with positive sibling Information is that you know that were precocious and and one early. That's for me. That's a the go-to and that's where I find that. It really helpful on a day in day out basis. I I gotTA bring up before. We talk about the series of of races. A Friday and Saturday that comprise the Fourteen Cup events. There was a horse each day. Paul Friday and Saturday that if you played the early pick five and the early pick for that absolutely absolutely would have made your Breeders Cup. That was Mo- fours of course on Saturday Berry Irwin Barrier Berry Abrahams and Doc Peter Miller. That was eight thousand nine hundred ninety one and then there was the Bondi horse on Friday. That Rick Hammersley gave everybody and I and I left off the ticket tap back at fourteen to one and so if you sniff out those two horses either day you were off to a big star. Well I didn't I didn't Tap back got me pretty good on Friday at the race that I did that. I missed and and and I don't know if you if you you probably know on Friday and Thursday night early Friday morning most togas power was out so Friday was the oh no I was out of. You Know I. I had to leave my house because I didn't. I couldn't see the races on Friday so I I didn't didn't get power back until Friday night but So Friday was a little bit of a tough thing. I never would have been able to add. Probably somebody texted me and said Tapa back one. If they it came back from the future is still probably wouldn't. I probably wouldn't got the message even though I really can't complain about that when he was he was a hardcore door savvy he you know he he definitely ran Iran much better. I guess the one thing you could say that race is that that it was it. was there for the taking it. Wasn't it wasn't a great face. It was a very weak. We grace and it was a hard race to figure. I just I never I never would have come up with him on the on Saturday. I actually think the horse that the other race that's going to be important on. The undercard is the flagstaff rate. And I you know I singled him pick five and me too I I use bury a little bit With most whereas even though that wasn't a great result for me but Later on I didn't have I needed home in her in the In the last leg but Flagstaff is GonNa be interesting race. We probably won't get to it later on so you know. The the time that race was was I wanted to mention that the the time of that race was basically the same as Kofi and for whatever reason some of the places that I've seen have already projected that figure down but I I think that's a huge mistake and I would really take notice of the two three year olds. Who wrote ran behind flagstaff? Coming forward They they they definitely improved without many people noticing. Though I think Bob Baffert already had made a comment about roads how happy was with them roadster. We're in the Mandela horse. Extra hope ultrasounds ran really well and are going to be a factor probably next year especially in the early part of next year in California. That's a that's a terrific side bar and you would think that given the distance they'll both be pointing for the Malibu. Yeah I would I would thinks thanks over. The the great thing about bolt sources can definitely go along. Yeah so if they if they go a different direction I may not be great for us if they all end up in the same in the same race. You know but we'll see how things play out there. They're definitely to definitely keep your eyes on point well taken and flagstaff lack staff buy out by every measure on figs. I mean it was a was a single in a stand out and it was weird though that in the early wagering Who was roadster that? That was an early favourite in a strong early favourite before very slowly and steadily flagstaff. Came down to even money and roadster off just a tick under under three to to like you started off with somebody in somebody in those camps must have thought that they that they both have improved. You know that's a general rules about this time of year that I start. I always give Three year old the second look you know and Not just for not not just for stake races but this race is I think in general handicapping when it gets this time of year. Lots of lots of three year olds make big jumps forward. And you know I'd I would I'd that some of my better handicapping at the end of the year I think going forward people should be looking at you. Know is there is a tip off that the sources has gone before no it you know and those to be coming but you know. I think it's a good lesson. You know for racing. We're hearing that extra hope Already will point. For long races Eric Lawson weighing in and I appreciate that would make sense for Samantha. SEGEL's in fact Samantha. The made that race go. I saw her earlier in the week. And we were talking about I said hey you're running this weekend. And she said well extra hopes going to go in the Damascus. Yes and I think they kind of hustle doesn't and we made the race go so that was There's I'd be faded about how he how he ran. I'm sure they are to to keep you ran real well. Well actually. I know it's I know it's turf but I'm just looking down. I forgot what kind of a number Mo four zero came back with. What a ninety six I think he just he just went forward as well? You know again another. I think he was free as well. I guess you could have predicted that it was a you know. It's a lot of red boarding to do that but You know we needed to go forward to win but He kind of figured to get the the trip that he did. So and the three year old forces If you've read any my tweet issue there. They've been hungry bunch you know now so you know looking for an outsider in that race probably made sense but That was a that was a tough race but one that'll work like that could certainly went. Well well I can tell you that. What one thing? I was so happy for Berry Berry Abrahams. who was such a special moment and of course Rosario part of that story but I had sniffed out succeed in surpass? Who I ki- I you find? I like that at eight to ten to one and you think you got something and then I was is like Oh yeah not gonNA catch. He's not gonNA catch him today.

"There was some information from matty that that also helped illuminate that choice and the fact that it did end up working out for paris and that it was potentially the right decision for paris was like okay maybe this like maybe we need to stop being so bitter toward paris and look at why this is potentially a good decision for her and what her game has been throughout the season and i think that's where a lot of the shifting happened partly than trying so hard to not be better and to not follow in bb nineteen footsteps that they were like oh wait we left the game bitter at paris because she made that mistake and she went against us and data so then in the end they're thinking okay what's the opposite of better paris because i was so pissed to her so i'm over peres hardly because i want to appear not bitter at all and feel like that that definitely had an influence on them i bb nineteen had had an influence on them that they wanted to do the exact opposite which those what they were trying to do all season was the opposite of beaming nineteen i wouldn't even say just necessarily like to appear but i think they genuinely were trying to not be bitter especially people like allie and i think that like what is the difference if like okay i don't wanna be bitter i don't wanna be seen as bitter so i'm going to act better and i'm going to do the thing that's not bitter what's like there's no meaningful difference between that and actually not being minute right like so i think better right exactly.
