Andy Bettles coach of World Number 5 Elina Svitolina
"How everybody and welcome to another episode of passing shot meets where we are joined by Andy. Battles catch of world number five Alina still, Lena. Andy Welcome to the show, it's a real pleasure to have you on. I've gotTA confess. This is the first ever policy shop meets. We've done with top coach liked yourself, so we're of course really looking forward to it looking forward to learning a bit more about. Toward Life on the WTO and teams Italy as well, but of course before we get into all of that. How has lockdown down? Life been treating you? Have you been able to get back onto attended school? Being out. Of being really been outside tennis Tennessee. Because on a member of a club, so. allowing guests, whoever and every single call where I live. In South West under so fully booked to the movement. When again now that I'm still yet to Have you not a wall next to where you live that you can just kind of play against. The backdrop for something well could do that. For Longer. It no more times. It'd be great to see so many people out on the lake or court spur. We normally see that like post. We're mood and date with the boom. Yeah I guess it's because of the current situation, but I think I'm from Tamara. The rules are relaxing, even more say. I guess that we even more people wanting to get out and about. Let's let's. Begin and you're actually the first coach we've had on on the show. You said welcome and thank you very much for aching the time to come on. Of, course we know you as Alina. Salinas coach. I'm sure of our listeners will be aware of that as well, but let's kind of go back to the beginning. And if you could just tell us a bit about how you how you go into tennis. When when did you start playing it yourself? IOS I was really young when I started alike can say three or four. When I started picking up a Racquet, my mum was always big tennis fan. We Live Right next Leo club down some actually. And I had older brother copiers over the May who started playing tennis. Mutt done some groups whoever and I just want to join followed on. So I started plan from really young age, and then kept at, it turned out to be pretty good end up going to reach school to kind of focus on the tennis from eleven to sixteen. The moved to the National Center to then a after in America so. Quiet too long tennis journey. Where are you based in America? Smooth Boise Boise State University. One by the. University about it yet a great time dire played professionally low bell to that. That's always one of the things I'm kind of jealous about when you get the players going off to do. Scholarships and the tennis in America. Jealous, of not to mention everything else, but. At what point did you move into like coaching? When did you kind of make that decision? And how was it kind of a natural decision to make quite fraught Eva Choice? Can finished a fishing vessels are twenty. One always wanted to give it go the Proto. Get out fatty quickly. That I wasn't quite good enough. Bay I definitely didn't have the money to. Keep traveling around and doing it so i. Guess I never. It was never like a big thing in Gaul. Really WanNa go into coaching whatever? kind of luckily. Fell into a job of 'em sparring partner. With. ANWR Ivanovich can stray off. Finish planned NACHO. Says was head coach of the time, and he asked me to be his sparring partner. So of course I'm yet great. I'll do that and then from there. When I was kind of inside that wild spending time with my job learning from him I kind of. Found, my appetite for coach, it and You felt like you were saying that one student forward and was quite a natural transition from lie, hitting partner to catching of develop more responsibilities as you found your found your feet on the on the tool. Yeah I kind of moved into it fairly. Slowly because I was with Nigel to stop with Anna for lucky. At the beginning, I didn't really speak much and always just hits Dimona into fake involved, and then the the long way together hid to a few weeks. Swear so there'll be a few weeks. He wasn't that Abi on my own and can unnaturally saw no given a few. That and then not just progressed, and when I start to Molina, same thing I was kind of sparring Jonah. Move to assistant coach could have yet graduate progressions. House never felt across thriving in the deep end. The big differences been sparring partner does not pressure, say anything or results is much Wa with the coach, and it definitely definitely feel about that more.
COVID-19 Patients Not Infectious After 11 Days: Singapore Study
"Covered nineteen patients are no longer infectious after eleven days of getting sick even though some may still test positive that's according to a new study by infectious disease experts in Singapore a joint research paper by Singapore's national center for infectious diseases and the academy of medicine Singapore said a positive test does not equate to infectious nis were viable virus the paper was based on a study of seventy three patients in
Multistem A Stable
"Dr Van Dockland has served as chairman of the board of directors at Ather since August two thousand and as CEO since the company was formed overseeing the growth and development of the primary business operations of the company and the transition from a venture backed startup to nasdaq-listed Public Company. He also serves as chairman of the National Center for Regenerative Medicine. Doctor Van Lynn received his PhD genetics from Stanford University School of Medicine and earned degrees in both economics and molecular biology at the University of California at Berkeley. I'd like to start by asking. How regenerative medicine therapies are different than traditional pharmaceuticals and biologics? And what value can they bring questions? So regenerative medicine really consists of several different types of their include cell therapy gene therapy gene modified cell therapy and then tissue engineering approaches so those four different sectors. If you've will comprise collectively the the regenerative medicine space and regenerative general medicine is fundamentally different from traditional pharmaceuticals or approaches that have been used to develop biological their babies. Because typically those therapies are very specific entities or single agent therapies that hacked through a discrete well defined mechanism of action. Cells are different in. That sells can actually work through multiple different mechanisms of action so they're multidimensional in that regard. Gene therapy is different because gene therapy is not meant to provide a temporary fix or a specific problem or a specific. But it's meant to provide in some instances permanent you're or a long term cure by addressing the underlying defect that is affecting the patient in causing the condition or causing the disease so gene therapy and cell therapy or a little bit different from one another in terms of how they differ from pharmaceuticals and blogs but together they really represent a broad approach kind of a paradigm shift. If you will in terms of how people think about approaching the treatment The whole range of different diseases and conditions that are really not well served under current standards of care and that regard that really gets to the type of the value that can bring because you can imagine that in contrast the putting somebody on lifetime therapy of different types of medicines to help mitigate the damage specific disease or condition if you can actually offer up a specific intervention whether it be one or a series of administrations of cell therapy or gene modified cell therapy or gene therapy approach and affect long term durable improvement and even cure for many patients. That's a pretty exciting prospect and it also stated with a Bali now. It also creates some potential challenges. Because we're still trying to figure out. How do we establish a reimbursement? Framework for therapies. That might be single or a single administration. That could be cured. It have an impact over many many years. But there's actually been some pretty good progress on that front so both in terms of the way that these therapies work and also the impact they can have in some cases over very long timeframes. I think it's it's pretty exciting. I agree completely. I think it's really exciting. To think about cheers for diseases that have been managed or even untreatable up to this point and also What you mentioned about a new way to look at it is also really important. Because they're more expensive but you have the potential to cure or a therapy. That will last for a long period of time. And so it's exciting to think about these new therapies in along those lines. I was hoping you could share with listeners. In recent years what have been some of the most exciting clinical breakthroughs regarding regenerative medicine. Well it's actually pretty exciting in the sense that there's a growing number of things that either been validated through clinical development now approved by the FDA and other regulators on the cell therapy front. The Car T. therapies. Which are gene modified cell? Therapy approaches? Current therapies are actually tallahassee. You take cells derived from the patient themselves. You genetically modified those cells reintroduce into the patient to help fight the cancer that has in fact. By definition these are patients that have failed other forms of therapies other forms of intervention and the progress on that front has been incredibly exciting where we see several approaches. They've really had an impact. In terms of improving clinical outcomes in many cases for patients. They really had no other no other hope because they had exhausted all the available treatment options and then they were basically treated using these types of approach so those approaches are pretty exciting. I think bed some of the gene therapy there. Several gene therapy products that have been approved over the past several years whether it's Things from Bluebird or he'll chance Ma from onto partis or a vaccine which is the company that Nevada's acquired or looks turn up from spark therapeutics. All of these have shown very very exciting response levels among the patients that are being treated very very high levels of Progress Clinical progress or curative effects or demonstrable improvement in the primary clinical outcomes. And I think in many respects these just represent the tip of the iceberg. If you will in terms of things that are that are coming Recently actually just a few days ago out at the J. P. Morgan Conference in San Francisco the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine. And every year they do state of the industry overview and they present a lot of different data that really describes the phenomenal progress in terms of clinical development and companies advancing to the various phases of clinical development or seeing more more things in phase two and phase three and then also highlighting other things that are well-positioned or could be well positioned for approval. Within the next couple of years. I think all of the data that was presented this year really reinforces and underscores the fact that the regenerative medicine sector and community as a whole is making incredible progress that is attracting live investments a lot of partnerships and as making really good progress with respect to regulatory and clinical side of things. I mean we now have over a thousand programs that are in clinical development the regenerative medicine sector and I think that that really covers a lot of really exciting opportunities that that a lot of people have hope and optimism around in terms of how can change medicine as we know.

Concerns growing over access to household cleaning supplies: survey
"A disturbing lack of protective gear medical experts equipment and supplies that is the key finding from a national survey of hospitals put out this morning by the federal government and your health policy reporter Selena Simmons Duffin was among the first to get that survey and she brings us this report this is the first survey of its kind and some of the details are alarming like the stories of hospital administrators trying to get more masks for health care workers we heard hospitals going out and trying to source these mass at auto parts shops nail salons art supply stores that's an Maxwell she oversaw the report as assistant inspector general for evaluation and inspections at the U. S. department of health and Human Services one hospital said that shipment of masks from the federal government had all expired ten years ago in another shipment half the mast for child sized yet another hospital said when trying to buy supplies masks that had cost fifty cents we're now six dollars apiece Maxwell says other supplies were also running short simple things like thermometers they need to test out we also heard cleaning supplies disinfectant food toilet paper did you catch that toilet paper is running out in America's hospitals right now one hospital said it was so short and disinfectants its staff tried to make it in house with chemicals like chlorine then there are the shortages and then a leaders in concerns about not having enough staff to operate them we had one hospital administrators say to us you can make thousands of ventilators but it will take an army to manage that equipment and to care for those patients testing is a huge problem for hospitals it's still really hard to get tests and there are delays in getting results many hospital said it took seven days or more and that has a ripple effects when a patient comes in and gets tested the hospital needs to treat that patient as potentially a positive coalbed patient so that means they are taking up a bed in the hospital for the length of time it takes but it has to come back that means when hospital staff are engaging with that patient they are in full protective gear when the test comes back negative that means tons of masks and gowns and gloves may have been wasted Maxwell says the inspector general's office hustled to get this report done the office had dozens of staffers working on it they called three hundred and twenty three hospitals around the country and they did it over five days the week of March twenty third the report isn't just a survey of challenges but also how hospitals are managing them and the ways the federal government could help for instance to help intervene and coordinate the supplies that they needed and the distribution of those supplies so hospitals are all competing with each other in this chaotic slapdash way administrators also said the government could do a better job with messaging to the public into hospital workers who struggle with guidelines that change constantly and sometimes contradictory information from federal and state authorities the findings in this report confirms what we've been hearing anecdotally says Dr Irwin Redlener he directs the national center for disaster preparedness at Columbia University and he adds it's encouraging that the federal government took the time to do the report the question now will be how will the government respond one way helps you fix some of these issues well the shared strategies help is hospitals help one another I I don't know we can only hope he says the shortages and problems aren't going anywhere and we're not at the peak of the outbreak yet Selena Simmons Duffin NPR
Price Gouging Incidents Follow Coronavirus Outbreak
"Have you been to the supermarket recently? Tried to buy hand sanitizer even toilet paper. Basic supplies are selling out in the wake of the corona virus and that creates a problem in times of demand. Price-gouging can be a big issue. That is something New York attorney. General Letitia James has noticed. I asked her for the evidence that she's seen. We've issued a total of six letters to merchants for price gouging of hand sanitizers and disinfectants sprays. In addition to that we've sent out three cease and desist letters to merchants for selling products. They claim to treat or cure corona virus individuals who've been engaged in deceptive advertising. They include the televangelist. Jim Bakker who had a person on his show selling a product that claim to treat corona virus. And what they are doing is nothing short of taking advantage of the fears That's out there throughout the general public. And what we should be doing is spreading facts and not fear. So it's it's one thing to put forth a completely fraudulent cure or something that claims to be a cure for the corona virus. Price-gouging is more complicated. Is it not? How do you determine when raising prices across the line and becomes illegal price-gouging well in one particular instance and individual a store in midtown Manhattan with selling a hand sanitizer for seventy nine dollars and so? There's no definitive answer to that question. But you know it when you see it. And so I don't know of any hand sanitizer. That costs almost eighty dollars. And so you know when you see when individuals are taking advantage of the market particularly when neighboring stores selling the same product for considerably less the Justice Department created an agency called the National Center for Disaster Fraud After Hurricane Katrina. Do you think the federal government is doing enough to protect people from getting taken advantage of financially clearly The federal government can do more. I'm not in a position. Right now. To criticize the federal government it will not ignore to the benefit of anybody and it will not result in addressing the issue of this virus. And what we really should be doing is working together. The federal government should be working with municipal governments as well as state governments and providing US assistance and testing and providing all municipalities and private companies testing kits that we contested test the general public. And lastly what can consumers do if they encounter what they believed to be price-gouging in their state? So let me just say that. The Office of Attorney General. We have one Urging individuals caution with respect to making charitable donations if individuals want to report Retailers that appear to be taking unfair advantage of consumers. They can report these incidents to the office of Attorney General. You can report. Suspicious charitable solicitations and scams to the office of Attorney General. Our Charities Bureau and individuals are contacting the general public with respect to investment scams. They can contact our office as well as the United States Securities and Exchange Commission
This bill to protect children may also put your privacy at risk
"Alford. You've got a nice explainer on the earn it act and you've got to break this down for me because it is extremely dense first off. What does the earn it? Act Propose yet you're right. It is extremely dense. But what the heck is proposing is basically making Tech Company's earned section to thirty protections now section. Two thirty is a part of the Communications Decency Act in Nineteen Ninety six basically protect platforms from being sued or content. That's posted on their own. So if I'm a restaurant and somebody needs a bad review on yelp. I can't sue YELP for that. I would have to sue the person that actually posted that. So it's a big part of what allows Forms to grow and also what allows for three expression on why So that is what they're proposing there saying. You have to follow these standards to protecting children online or you do not at this protection. That would basically keep your website alive and that is. That's a deal breaker for tech companies. Right if you don't have section two thirty protection you're basically just it's open game terms of lawsuits. They basically companies could not function without production. Right if you think about it like thinking about how many posts are on facebook a day and I. I think there's something along. The lines of like one billion hours of video is being watched on Youtube every day. Now think about like how many lawsuits could comfort that. And there's a very good chance it could lose these lawsuits end. They which shut down like immediately. Or if you're like a new website like looking to start out and you know you all of us are liable for all of this because you don't meet the standards Yeah it's not really much of a guideline or best practices so much as it is basically. If you don't do this you're done so let's take us through. What are those guidelines? What exactly is the government? Proposing in this instance the guidelines are not established by this bill guidelines are going to be established by mission Established by this bill where the three of the members are the heads of the Justice Department the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Homeland Security. That is where the issue really comes in for a lot of privacy insecurity experts because the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department has spent many years basically trying to get rid of end to end decryption saying that it prevents them from catch criminals. It prevents them from being able to solve investigations. And you know in the past the just had this at the FBI mover encryption for terrorists and then before that they were saying you know drug dealers are using this online and we can't like catch like these drug kingpins because that those arguments clearly didn't work because you know we're still afforded encryption and technically he's not really into those pressures but now with the earn it act. The idea is going at this from the angle of child exploitation which is a much harder political angle to fight against right. Legislators can go out there and say no I actually support you know our children online. Yeah that that's that's what fascinated me is because there there's a different goal and the goal is not as never outright stated right. It's ultimately what they WANNA do is is to insert a back door into facebook apple various systems. But it's never outright ever said and interesting like the press conferences that have been scheduled. The public statements of May have all been about a exploitation of children online. And how to prevent that? And it's it's interesting the way it spawned because you're right politically you can't be on the other side of that argument right. It just doesn't make any like you can never win that argument by saying yeah. I'm I'm for that but just as work right. Yeah and I think that's kind of why. So many tech policy experts have been looking at this thinking. It'll actually does have a pretty good chance of getting momentum on Capitol Hill and I think you're right to point out the security risks at privacy risk here because like encryption is what protects your communications not only from being viewed by people who have stolen your phone or potential hackers but also government regimes and the idea that the government has been trying to propose is. They can't do these investigations when things are encrypted and they want waffle acts as which is basically. Give us a specialty. That only police officers or only investigators can use to messages. But that that's kind of fall short when you look at all. The government ater leaks. That have happened in cybersecurity. Tools have been stolen from the NSA and the CIA where these are were also tools. That were only meant to be used by the government and have been used five militias hackers because right when the government says trust us. We'll we'll make this will michigan this back door safe and only use by us. It's hard to buy. The argument given there have been a lot of examples. Where that's that hasn't been the case right. Yeah and that. That's definitely the biggest argument against Lawful access I had a hearing about this December where Apple At basically told Congress look like we can't make a key just for the good guys like that's not how that works so it'll be interesting to see where this goes on Capitol Hill. There's definitely a lot of noise about it from privacy and security advocates. But also you know there. There are organizations like the National Center for missing exploited. Children backing this bill and like seven out of the ten senators. That are backing this. Bill are on the Senate Judiciary Committee which will be having a hearing on this tomorrow. It's important to note. This is not a Parson issue. There are there are senators and representatives on both sides both parties. That's what this bill. I believe it's four. Republicans and six Democrats that are sponsoring bill right so it was a rare instance where we have these parties. Who agree on an issue. I guess what's interesting to me is I mean beyond beyond the spinning. It's interesting that they're taking this tack now because you know I think back in two thousand sixteen we we we saw this before apple versus the FBI were. There was a big battle there. Fbi wanted some sort of way to get into the iphone apple refuses really kind of when it crystallized apple's kind of big pitch on security and privacy as a featured in its products and clearly in the court of public opinion the the need for security and encryption for the services kind of one out. So that's why it's interesting to me that they're taking this different tack than really going after making this an issue about protecting children as opposed to getting getting you know having backdoor access for the good guys quote. We started seeing that angle Around the time. Facebook said that they were GONNA start encrypting. Their Messaging Services says facebook is responsible for reporting about sixteen point eight million Cases back in two thousand eighteen to The National Center for Missing Exploited Children. So the idea was that if you're going to encrypt these messages. That is a big way. That child predators get in touch with kids in groom them into you know meeting them later on and things like that and if you're encrypting these messages as you're not going to be getting these kinds of signals you're not stop. These pedophile is using FACEBOOK MESSENGER. So that is around the time when? I saw this guy you front and this new angle the Justice Department and I think the fallacy surrounding that from what tech policy experts have told me is that yes. It's true that facebook gives like eighteen like sixteen or eighteen million reports per year. But the difference would be that. Not much of that is actually enforced. So there's like they'll give them these reports but like this center is not like law enforcement agents a they. Just give the COPS AFTER. It's very like it's not clear. How much of that is actually acted on? There was a New York. Times report about you. Know faced with not being able to handle all of these These chat exploitation posts or ramping up like a severe amount and how much they reported. But I think I think the problem still comes down to the federal government doesn't have the funding or resources te actually tackle that so even if you know they provided a back door ear or follow these guidelines. Whatever they might be. I think it still boils down to the question of this actually protect children and you know unless you have investigators and resources that can actually use that kind of
Q&A: Coronavirus expert speaks about the spread of COVID-19 Pandemic
"So I'm really confused as to what the difference between a pandemic an epidemic is regardless of. Whatever you call it. People are starting to panic us. Everyone just going to be working remotely and avoiding travel for the foreseeable future. So just how serious is the corona virus situation really for you personally? There's no question. There is not really a sector of our society that has not been impacted by what has happened over. The last several weeks having covered a lot of these outbreaks over the last twenty years. I knew that the economy would be affected. But I don't think anyone could have predicted. Just how badly corona virus fears coupled with an oil price war with tank the markets. What is clear? Is that investors parents. Just about everyone is getting spooked. Look some of it is warranted in. Some of it is not and today. We're GONNA explain why I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. Let's start at the beginning or at least as close to the beginning as possible. In December of last year a novel or New Virus started circulating in China and over the last three months virus spread to nearly one hundred countries in regions around the world. More than one hundred thousand people have been infected and around. Four thousand have died when you hear. The global fatality rate is around four percent. Now you have a rough idea of where they get those numbers. Let's also define some terms that are increasingly being used by public? Health officials and I will preface by saying sometimes they sound scarier than they are for example. You may have noticed that. Cnn shifted its terminology yesterday and started calling the ongoing corona virus situation. A pandemic truth is many public. Officials have been telling us that it meets the criteria for a pandemic for some time and I will share those criteria with you in a moment but still we thought long and hard about using this word. This is not a decision. We take lightly. We don't WANNA cause panic. We simply want everyone to be prepared. Individuals hospital systems cities and the country. So let me get some of your questions question. One first things first. What is a pandemic honestly? There isn't a universally agreed upon definition which was surprising to me. Many will describe it. Generally speaking as an outbreak that has spread to several countries incontinence. It typically affects a large number of people. Harvard epidemiologist Mark Lipstick. Says it helps to call a a horse a horse. I think it helps clarify that. It's not a series of locally contained outbreaks and when we see more cases it's not because necessarily those cases just appeared. It's finally testing them. I think the reporting to some extent has been that there are a few hundred cases at most the United States and that you know every day the number goes up a little bit when in fact there may be quite a number of more cases. Testing is critical here and with increased testing. We will certainly have increased numbers of those diagnosed with the infection but that is good news and bad news. The bad news is that the numbers will go up. The good news. Is that many of the people who test positive may not be that ill. And that will bring down that fatality ratio. Remember those numbers. We discussed earlier say that instead of four thousand people dying out of one hundred thousand which is a four percent fatality rate. Say instead it was four thousand people dying out of two hundred thousand. That would be two percent fatality rate. You get it. So it's more people test positive. It may bring that fatality ratio down. Also another important thing about a pandemic is that it does not necessarily mean. The symptoms of an illness are more serious or that the disease is more deadly. The three general criteria for a pandemic are a virus that can cause illness or death sustained person to person transmission of that virus and evidence of spread throughout the world. And that's what we're seeing with the novel Corona Virus. Right now question too. So why is CNN calling this pandemic now? Well words matter on Monday morning we made the decision that many epidemiologists and public health experts had already made to call the novel. Chronic virus pandemic essentially. We checked the final box. We already knew the virus was out there and we recently learned there was community spread after carefully evaluating the global picture. It is now clear. There is spread around the world in one day last week. The number of new cases outside of China was nearly nine times higher than the number of new cases in China. This virus has found a foothold on every continent except for Antarctica and in several countries the number of cases continues to climb again just to reiterate calling it. A pandemic doesn't necessarily mean it's more deadly. It's just more widespread so here. Cnn We knew using the word pandemic was a big decision. But we think it was the right one. Dr Anthony FAUCI Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Thinks the focus should be on what we do going. Forward people call that a pandemic is. Cnn would call a pandemic whol quo pin them. It's not GonNa make any difference with what we do. That's the point instead of people getting all bent out of shape about what you call it. It's a serious situation for sure. Question three so how does calling this a pandemic change things in terms of our response when something is considered a pandemic? It means that we've moved beyond this idea that we can simply contain the virus and now all the focus is on slowing the spread as much as possible. So that would be switching gears from containment to mitigation. Us Surgeon General. Dr Jerome Atoms explained this in an appearance on CNN state of the Union. This past Sunday. Initially we had a posture of containment. So that we could give people time to prepare for where we are right now. Now we're shifting into a mitigation faith which means that we're helping communities understand you're going to see more cases unfortunately you're going to see more deaths but that doesn't mean that we should panic but again it does mean that it is time to start preparing some countries around the world are taking drastic measures some of the largest quarantines ever recorded in history have taken place over the last few months. I in China and now in Italy where the entire country is in a state of lockdown could be recommended in the United States schools might be closed and mass gatherings cancelled in your town. It might mean changes at work or how you work as in working from home it might mean putting off a family vacation or catching up over the phone instead of getting together question for do we have the infrastructure to support this pandemic doctor. I think of the medical infrastructure first nurses doctors hospital beds. Icu beds and I am a little worried about that. For example if lots of medical staff get exposed to the virus and need to be quarantined. We could start to quickly have a shortfall at. Cnn's corona virus townhall last week. I asked Ron Clean about this clean. Was the Ebola response coordinator. Under PRESIDENT OBAMA GETTING OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. Ready for this influx of cases is something we should be doing now. We saw China they. They built temporary hospitals. They really flexed up their capacity. And I think this is the point. We all need to think about the possible impact on our healthcare system is something we should be using this time. We'll cases ramp up to really get ready for the US Department of Health and Human Services is estimating that if this becomes even a moderate pandemic at least two hundred thousand people in the United States could need intensive care. Problem is at the moment. Are Hospitals have fewer than one hundred thousand beds in intensive care units and many of them are being used because we are in the middle of flu season and will need more equipment on hand as well like breathing machines again estimates are that we would need around sixty five thousand breathing machines and we have just barely enough with again? Many being currently used this is all a fundamental part of pandemic preparedness. And we need to be working to address these deficiencies and plan ahead question. Five should the elderly be afraid so many listeners have reached out to ask about their parents and their grandparents. And you know what? I've been speaking to my own parents every day down in Florida. Older people are worried understandably. We've been talking about the elderly in general terms as an at risk population. But I WANNA be clear about who that means when the CDC talks about older adults. They're really referring to anyone sixty years or older. Starting at age sixty there is increasing risk of disease and the risk increases with age the highest risk of serious illness and death people older than eighty years. That's Dr Nancy Mess and the Director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and respiratory disease. She was speaking in a teleconference on Monday. People who are at greatest risk are those who are older and you also have serious long term. Health conditions like diabetes heart disease or lung disease. You might not feel old if you're in your sixties but you do need to take precautions. Dr Anthony FAUCI warned. Even younger people need to think about the safety of older adults they interact with eighty percent of people will do well if they don't have any underlying conditions but you may get infected and then come home and infect your grandmother or grandfather who does have an underlying condition so each family unit each individual has the look about not only the risk for themselves but what risks will they putting the people around them in but just because you're older or have an underlying condition that doesn't mean it's fatal or that you'll even get seriously sick. It means you need to be prepared and take precautions. Use Good Judgment. Stay home as much as possible. Avoid crowded areas especially now and for the next several weeks. Stay away from sick people even if it is a granddaughter or grandson who you haven't seen in a while and if you do get sick you need to get tested and you need to seek treatment. The World Health Organization's Director General Pedro Adam gave races offered some optimistic words yesterday. Now that the virus has a foothold in so many countries that threat of abundance has become very real but it would be the first fund music in history that could be controlled. The bottom line is we are not at the mercy of the virus. The bottom line is humanity has overcome pandemics before in this globally connected world. We may be asked to add more social distance between one another but that doesn't mean we still can't collectively come together as a nation and as a world we'll be back tomorrow.

"President Donald Trump blamed a fight for oil market share between Saudi Arabia and Russia as well as unspecified fake news for a significant drop in. Us stock prices yesterday amid sliding demand for crude due to the corona virus on Monday major US stock indices dropped seven percent with the Dow Jones industrial average plummeting. Two thousand points. After oil prices slumped as much as twenty two percent in a separate tweet. He downplayed the impact of the virus. Comparing the number of American lives. It has taken to the greater number of deaths from seasonal influenza. Making it clear he himself hasn't been able to intellectualize the significance of corona virus the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised elderly and unwell Americans to avoid crowds in order to limit the impact of the virus. But the White House said it was business as usual as the seventy three year old. Donald Trump attended a fundraising event in Florida unlike flew the current outbreak concerns a new virus. For which there is no vaccine and no natural immunity in the population. Kovic nineteen has only just begun to spread in the US. Nancy Massani a head of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases said more than five hundred cases of the virus had been reported in thirty four states and Washington DC. As of Sunday night nineteen people had died eighteen of them in Washington state with the other fatality in California. According to the World Health Organization around one hundred six thousand cases and around three thousand five hundred deaths have been confirmed worldwide. This seems to be a disease that affects adults and most seriously older adults Massoni said. Starting at age sixty there is an increasing risk of disease and the risk increases with age despite reports of an attendee at the recent conservative political action conference near Washington falling sick with corona virus off to interacting with senior Republicans including the Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The White House denied reports that the nation's top officials would change their routine. Jeremy Konin Dyke who is head of foreign disaster assistance led the Obama Administration's response to the Abo- around break in West Africa said on twitter. I cannot overstate how risky it is to be exposing the president of the United States to events like this right now.
CDC tells people over 60 or who have chronic illnesses like diabetes to stock up on goods and buckle down for a lengthy stay at home
"Meanwhile the CDC is announcing its own recommended restrictions according to business insider people who are over sixty years old as well as those with underlying health conditions like diabetes heart disease and lung disease are most vulnerable to getting sick or even dying from corona virus and should take particular precautions to protect themselves our goal is to prevent protect you said Dr Nancy Meissonier director of the national center for immunization and respiratory diseases she said this will require you and your family to take action this means what you have supplies on hand like routine medications for blood pressure and diabetes over the counter medicines and medical supplies to treat fever and other symptoms Sony A. also recommended people at higher risk in their family stock up on enough household items and groceries so you'll be prepared to stay home for a period of time she reiterated advice to avoid close contact with people who are sick wash your hands often well steer clear of high touch surfaces in public places and avoid crowds particularly those in poorly ventilated spaces this weekend she said the federal government made a very specific recommendation in this context the travelers particularly those with underlying health issues to for all cruise ship travel worldwide she also added the people at higher risk should cancel cancel or reschedule nonessential travel like long plane trips the airlines even sending out emails to people telling them of all the precautions that they've been undertaking themselves having Mister bleaching the inside of planes not just lavatories every night Missoni pointed out it's important for family members and neighbors to look out for folks or in higher risk categories by making sure you're familiar with their medications and helping them get necessary food and supplies C. caretaker should make a plan in case their loved ones you get sick as well as a plan if they become ill themselves like having backup caretakers as well she did say that the risks are increasing dramatically with age she said we use broad categories of over sixty or sixty five but they did a really says as you get older the risk goes up they've been announcements that the average age of death for those who died in the United States as well over the age of eighty so again we are all operating in the absence of information is why you're seeing such uncertainty in the market using market bounce around looking for a floor it's hard to find a floor when you just don't know what the hell is going on and that seems to be the basic perception right now is that people don't really know what the hell is

Some coronavirus testing kits are defective, CDC says
"Sure coronavirus testing kits been sent to state laboratories around the country because I want to keep we know let's keep tabs on this anybody who might have any contact with someone who had been in that area in China someone who suspects that for some reason they might have coronavirus you can go to the state health lab and get one of these testing kit soon to find out well apparently many of the kids that have been sent out have flaws in them and don't work properly great the kids were meant to enable states to conduct their own testing and have results faster than they would buy shipping samples to the CDC in Atlanta but the failure of the kits means that states that encounter problems with the test should not use it and which they would still have to depend on the CDC central lab which can cause several days delay in getting results obviously a state would want wouldn't want to be doing this test and using it to make clinical decisions are made isn't working like it should that's an understatement said Dr Nancy Messner director of the national center for immunization the CDC recommends testing for people who have symptoms like fever cough shortness of breath and who within the past fourteen days have traveled to China were been in close contact with a patient known to be infected with coronavirus but the tests have flaws in them and so they are useless to the

"Theory and I had all of the critical thinking skills that i. I should've been employing at the time that happened. I already had a bachelor's degree in zoology. I had a master's degree in secondary science education. I am a very well educated person. I'm a well red person. I should have known better. So a lot of this misinformation that's out there is compelling. It speaks to values that people have under the surface and and so it's important to acknowledge those values that are under the surface connect on shared values and then propose a new frame for the conversations that you can move forward board with the shared values so for example one of the things that I have done on facebook when you know people say a message to me on social media about. Oh isn't isn't this is silly one argument that I had gotten. Was You know those Democrats with their green new deal. They don't care about coal miners and I can say as a granddaughter is coal miner. I am also really concerned about the dignity and the lives of people who work work in a coal mine. I share that concern and I want those people to be well-cared-for so we can connect on the shared value that of other left for humanity that just because the economy's moving forward we don't have to necessarily leave behind the people who worked in the technologies that we used you know all throughout our industrial revolution into the present so we can give those people dignity. We can develop programs that we can care for them. So I've connected on a shared value. I care about those people to in fact those people all are my ancestors I care very deeply about them and then I can say I would support a plan that would encourage them to learn any trade. I would encourage a plan. That would make sure that they were well cared for and they were not abandoned. I'm not interested in abandoning coal miners. And so I was able to diffuse news. What could have been a potential blow up but say hey we can connect on this one thing? We both agree on this one thing. Let's talk and let's find a solution to climate change that has has this shared value present in it and we can do this in a way that gives dignity to both your side and my side and I deeply wanNA bring everybody together. So that's one of the ways that you can do it so when somebody says some offhand comment about climate sometimes you can let it go nuts. It's just a joke. Sometimes people are being silly but sometimes you just can't you can't let it aside because if you let it slide then you're telling them that it's okay to talk about this thing in my presence even though this isn't true so it's important to state the fact whatever. The fact is then the myth or the misconception what people think about climate change and then identify the fallacy see. Climate scientists can never do enough to convince deniers that climate change is happening. There will always be another threshold with which they need to meet so once you put all three of those things together. It is a powerful tool to dislodge misinformation and misconceptions from the mines that I use found bound students but I also use it in conversations with people who I trust to have conversations with state fact than the myth of the misconception and then identify that fallacy also likes likes remember. Is that a lot of these arguments come. Because climate change is a real threat to some people's worldview and mainly league free market. And this has. This has a long history. People using misinformation against environmentalists in defensive. The free market the same. Some people who have been involved in denying tobacco use causes cancer lung cancer in people are also producing being misinformation for fossil fuel companies saying that fossil fuels and their emissions. Do not cause and connor change to the same exact people in fact the same. I'm exact people. Have a goal of sending a book to every teacher in America labeled by scientists disagree about global warming and that effort is an effort to sow doubt in the minds of America's science educators who will then impart that doubt on America's youth all to cause is confusion on the topic which will be to anxiety and paralysis. So we don't come together like we should and respond into the threat and take action. Thank you so much for breaking down all of those like really thought out strategies of how to deal with theus conversations especially this time of year and I will definitely like link all those resources that you mentioned in the show notes if any wants to go back and learn more four and I also. I'm so glad that you mentioned just right now. At the end the idea that the people who are advocating on behalf of tobacco companies are the same people advocating on behalf of fossil so feel companies and there has been a lot of records that you know. Fossil fuel companies and gasoline companies have known for a long time that climate change is inevitable. And it's very Directly linked to our consumption of fossil fuels. So I think that's interesting and I was Gonna ask you like what's your favorite rebuttal fun fact because mine is that when someone says Oh. Scientists are one hundred percent sure about climate change. My favorite rebuttal to that question is always that we are more certain that humans are causing climate change. Then we are that smoking causes lung cancer. Yeah that's my favorite. They told me that unlike the first day of graduate school and they. We're like if anyone ever tries to question you just by your one of the good guys or one of the scientists. Yeah that's Oh my gosh. That's exactly true. I would say yeah that that is a that is a big one that huge consensus like ninety. Seven percent of Y- climate scientists agree we are causing climate change. And we can do something about. That's huge for me. I also liked I saw. Oh I think it's is. It is the one that does all talking or teller the silent one right how you never remember anyway. He had like a little analogy where he's looking at bridge and ninety seven been engineers. Say That bridge not isn't safe. That Ridge isn't safe. That Ridge isn't safe over and over and over and over again and you have three of them that say yeah. No it's fine. You can drive on it. Are you going to try on the bridge modest such an award. I'm not. I'm not stopping kids. Another car seat and driving on a bridge that ninety ninety seven engineers say. That bridge isn't safe but three say okay. Sorry I'm not. I'm not doing that. So yeah that is. The consensus is really. They're very important. And actually that has been identified by climate change communicators that is kind of a gateway drug to people or a gateway belief. Leave to denying the science of climate. Change if you can so doubt in the minds that Ohio scientists don't really know what's going with this climate change things whole global warming thing. They can't can't even make up their mind on what to call it. If you can so doubt that scientists don't agree then people are not likely to to get on board and if you look at a lot of studies if you poll people and ask them how many scientists do you think agree on climate change. The number is ridiculously low. Like in the sixties I think but the numbers actually ninety seven percent so it's very high so their campaigns have actually really worked. They've sold a lot of doubt in the minds of the American public that fossil fuels and human behavior is directly directly related to the changes in our climate that you're experiencing now thank you. Thank you for all of that. Great Information I think you're just so eloquent but you're also very very level headed when you have these conversations clearly because you've been on the other side as well like you know what the thought process is when you are a climate denier. Let's say absolutely yes and a lot of these conversations you know. These are happening with people that I love in communities that I love I have restructured. My whole were hold in light of the election of two thousand sixteen. Just because I've moved forward in a different direction does not mean that I don't deeply care about the the people from you know conservative days from my evangelical days I care and I love each and every one of those people very much and I still wants to be a open safe person that they can come to because ultimately when I started doubting my political views. I didn't know who to talk A to. I didn't have anybody that I felt was a safe person to bring this up laugh and I want to be the kind of person that I needed someone who could listen to other people and hold the weight of what they're going through in such a way that it was careful but it gives the other person dignity and I feel like that is exactly what we need. We need human compassion. We need connection. We need relationships. I've never changed anybody's idea about climate through an internet post so far as I know I I've never changed anybody's idea about climate from a snarky comment. The only people people whose minds that I've changed about climate are people who have a relationship with people who trust me. Those are the people who have changed their minds and have come around on the issue issue. It's staying in relationship with people in a way that is safe for me. You know there are. People are not interested in having conversations stations where but there are many people most people who I still deeply care about love so much and you know when something happens for them and things may may start to change. I want to be the kind of person that they can come to. And talk with about it so that they don't feel as alone as I did not as such a positive But Way to look at how you can really serve the people in your life and really just be a resource for people and be somewhere where they can turn that. They'll feel all safe asking these questions and having these conversations starting to change their mind a little bit and I think that's just such a positive note I i. I would love to leave the audience with any final words of wisdom that you may have for. We wrap up. I think that this has been such an insightful conversation while the main thing that I wanNA leave.

"A lion if you perceive that someone is attacking taking you and that element a core element of who you are as a person there amid doable flare up and they will lash out at you so some of the ways that we can avoid aid that amid dealer response in a conversation is to tell stories on I have quite a few prepared climate stories to talk about at all times that I've curated over my years is a citizens. Climate Lobby volunteer so stories are a great way to do that but also just like being really relaxed being really chill asking questions giving them time to speak looking them in the eye and being careful with your body language not crossing your arms you know sitting going back relaxing smiling. Those are all shoes that you are relaxed and that they can be relaxed to and so a lot of those the things I use not just by cloud conversations but of course with my own students when when they get heated. I'm pretty good at de escalating situations as part of the job. Thank you so much for sharing all of that because I think that you have a really good grasp on like the best way to encourage other people to get thinking about it on their own. You know it's one of those things that like. It's always nice to present an idea. I feel like girls do this with their boyfriends that they like presenting ideas let someone else take credit for coming up with it and they feel like they you know like they've done such a great job and suggesting activity. You're like whatever it baby right. So that's kind of how climate conversations oftentimes are the most successful. Because I like to do do that same thing where I set up a situation where someone else is comfortable opening up the conversation in asking a question. It's like Look I'm thinking when I go to the grocery store and I take take reasonable produce bags so I'm not taking those plastic bags every single time when I bring my res will produce bags. There's always one person at the grocery store that's like. Wow what cool bags. Where'd you get them? How did you do this? I never thought to bring reusable bags before like whatever it may be when someone has an opportunity to converse with you like aspirin on questions and it comes from them. It's such a successful positive conversation. Absolutely absolutely another one of the things I like to do you is. I've got a really great hat in. Its make earth cool again and I wear it all the time as much as I can and that also starts conversations quite a bit like you'd be surprised. Find some cool non-confrontational climate change gear and where it as much as possible and you'd be shocked. How many people we'll come up and we'll talk to you about it? I think that's a great idea. I also love love. Love to backtrack and talk a little bit about the conversations that you have with your family that you mentioned very briefly. Just the idea that someone's asking you. Oh how are you doing. What have you been up to lately? And then you present these climate action situations shows that you've been involved in in a very casual way. I would love to kind of talk about some strategies that you can utilize if you have a family member or a close friend or something like that. Who is is not really like on board with climate change? For whatever reason how do you start and encourage really positive conversations in that in that situation absolutely so one of the things that I like to do before I even get started is to remind myself of Yale. Climate Communication nations study on The six America's and I always remind myself that even though I feel alone because nobody's talking about climate change. They're only only nine percent of people in America who are dismissive of climate science. An only twelve percent are doubtful as very loudly that I'm talking to someone who who is in another category. Maybe they're cautious. Maybe a are doubtful. They don't really know but they're not dismissive. So for a lot of people you want to focus your attention on the people who are open and who aren't interested in what you have to say a and I don't worry too much about people who aren't interested in having a to a conversation if proved yourself to not be willing to listen said not be someone with integrity in conversation. I don't feel like I have the responsibility to to speak with you. I will if you are willing to to be kind to be open to listen but I often don't engage if I detect that someone is extremely dismissive and very flippant about climate change. So I want to just remind everybody that you know you don't have any conversations that you want. It's really important to make sure that you keep yourself safe for the holidays. It can be really stressful time for everybody but if your family family is a family that has good communication who is willing to listen and they love you and you have a good relationship with them like I do with my family and with my in laws then then there are some really good strategies that you can use to Kinda talk about something if you hear an offense comment and stay at the Thanksgiving table or at the Christmas dinner table. One of the things that I always do is if I hear a climate denial argument occurring. And if you guys don't know skeptical. Science against DOT COM has an amazing list of one hundred ninety nine climate science arguments against climate science. And then it has kind of the the troops truth also right next to it. It's a great amazing lists and that's curated by John Cook at George Mason University Climate Change Communication Center so so that's great like resource to like go to also have an APP so much for sharing. I will definitely put that in the show notes if anyone wants to go ahead and read through it it's amazing. They have principal version. I bring it with me all my conferences and stuff that I do and see all my teachers and give it out. It's a great resource source. Anyway I always if I know what they're what they're saying that if I also know the rebuttal I always state the fact I so let's say I had a conversation conversation with some friends at my house about climate change and they were. They were skeptical. They were skeptical couple and they kind of wanted to know a little bit more about save all Kino's as you know and how do volcanoes contribute to global climate change. I always state the facts. I so sit facts. Fact is humans is our causing global warming. Then you state the myths or the misconception. Some people think that global warming is caused type Aquino's the fallacy. You can use You would want to say what the policy is after that the problem with that argument is Xyz so to determine what fallacy the argument is using we have a handy dandy acronym that was developed by John Cook at George Mason It's called Flick F. L. I. C. C. F. Stands for fake experts. Those are a lot of times you'll see like petitions online signed by one hundred thousand scientists saying that humans are not causing climate. Change a lot of those people are not climate scientists. Their you know their physicians or they're not real people they're fake experts the L. is for logical fallacies like a red herring misrepresentation or Straw man fallacy false economy jumping to conclusions inclusions And I can go into all those more detail. is for impossible expectations. See for Cherry picking and then the other C is for conspiracy conspiracy theories and that that last one that lasts see. That is the see that I used to convince myself that climate change wasn't aren't real and that it was some part of global conspiracy. So the type I was really a pretty deep conservatism. I was really impacted by the climate gates. debaucle of two thousand nine with the email half of the University of East Anglia and Michelman at Penn State. That was really mealy in the news at that time specifically rush limbaugh talk about that a lot and the way they talked about it. That rush limbaugh talks about it. I really so you felt like oh my gosh. There's some kind of conspiracy that's an. I felt like I had been betrayed like I had given my life to Bar Mental Ism and caring for the environment but I was also you know conservative Republican and I thought. Oh my gosh are scientists you know in the profession that I've dedicated in my life to doing something and hiding something from the public for a certain agenda and of course that wasn't the case it has been thoroughly debunked. You'll you will hear me say at Ten Thousand Times I was wrong. I was wrong about that but I got hooked into a conspiracy.

"Family really encouraged You know love of nature. That was really awesome. I grew up in kind of fell in love with science. I had been around science my whole life. Mom's a nurse and my dad owns a a scientific equipment company. I was always around microscopes and so the scopes so I kind of decided at the end of you know high school will to pursue a degree the sciences so. I decided on zoology because I absolutely loved animals went off to college. You know still learning about science the Walla g evolution but also kind of becoming more conservative. My boyfriend at the time. Who's now my husband? He was a very conservative. So is a very conservative -servative person and so I started to Kinda get more conservative in my political views and I was involved with the College Republicans and really really did not see my involvement with College Republicans and my you know staunch dedication to the environment and chair for earth as ask things that were opposed to another because inherently they're not and so I kind of pursued both outlets for a long time and we graduated. I got my master's degree in secondary science education and when we graduated. We kind of both decided that you want to move up to the mountains where it was a little bit cooler you know. Get Out of Florida where it was really really hot and head up to where. It's a little bit cooler and there's more mountains. We both Love Mountain Snow so you ended up in a small town North West Georgia. We both got jobs up here from about the time I think two thousand seven to twenty eleven. I was very much a republican conservative Republican. But but still teaching science definitely believe in evolution. Not Hate that phrase I don't believe in evolution. I just I see it. I could observe that. It's occurring so I was trying trying to find my space in my evangelical community here in my hometown but also you know in the Republican Movement. I still felt like there was a place for someone like like me. At both of those tables I was really firmly in that camp for a long time and then just over time I started noticing little things at church or on conservative radio. Oh that didn't quite jive with me and my upbringing. And the way that I saw the world inherently and I got some books you know people recommend different books me in front by conservative writers and I would read them and kind of be like I didn't I didn't know that was that was part of that. was part of this and then things really changed once. Donald trump was elected and he announced that we would be removing ourselves from the Paris climate. Accord's that really woke me up once I heard that I'll never forget it. I remember exactly where I was in town. I remember exactly where I was driving when I heard that we had signed the Paris climate accords. And I remember exactly where we were where I was driving wing when I heard on. NPR that we had removed ourselves from them or would begin that process that long process of doing so and hearing that by that that time I had two small children two little girls and nothing can prepare a woman for are the kind of transformation that happens. When when you have kids for me just took everything already about me an amplified it and made it so so much more than what is already was I already was very invested in protecting the world but now I was not only invested in protecting the world for humanity but also for for my own children really Kinda put a real face on the climate crisis for me And I knew in that moment that I had to do something. I didn't know what I was going to do but I had to figure there's something out started the long journey to now I saw a global weirding video with Catherine Heyhoe and she had mentioned citizens climate lobby and I added my name immediately absolutely and learned there was a new chapter forming in North Atlanta. got a babysitter and drove all the way down to Atlanta to go to my first citizens climate lobby meeting and learn a little bit more about it and as I was leaving a wonderful woman said Hey I can help you start your own chapter at that was not even on my radar. I didn't think about that and I said sure. Yeah let's talk about that. So we met for coffee and she told me how I could start my own chapter. And she brought me a bags. We'll have goodies to to get me started and I learned how do see CEO. And I went to my first lobby meeting saying I brought my mother with me to Washington. DC and we lobbied for carbon fee and dividend Together which was wonderful wonderful experience. I highly recommend doing activism with your mother great and so yeah and then after a few years of doing that I add seen a advertisement for for a climate change teacher Ambassador Program with the National Center for Science Education. Thinking it was a long shot has only ten individuals. We're going to be chosen by why in CNBC. And I actually got chosen and always beyond thrilled got to go to Washington. DC and work with the People at George Mason Center for Climate Change Communication Indication and the National Center for Science Education. And through that program. I've been able to speak with reporters from all over the world. We've done amazing work with lessons and and we're doing awesome staff trying to get out the word fellow teachers. Try to figure out ways to get teachers more involved on teaching climate in an age appropriate way but also a fashionable way that is consistent with science and climate research. Wow Wow wow. Thank you so much for sharing that Sarah that was. It's such a great great background on who you are and wire so passionate about what you do. I feel like there's so many different parts of your story that and I want to know more about so. Thank you so much for sharing that. Of course I'm happy to be here and so before we get into like what you do now. Teaching the people about climate science in an age appropriate way and also just educating people and encouraging people to think more critically about climate science I I would love to kind of back up and talk a little bit about you as a young adult before you had your children and your involvement in these more Republican in political groups and George Church setting and what were the conversations. You're having like a point around climate change. Well I don't I don't really remember any conversations about climate change happening which was kind of part of the problem like at a certain time I noticed that things were missing from in my life. It's hard to notice an absence but after a certain period of time it was like you know I'm not. I'm not hearing any messages about about caring for the earth. I'm not hearing any messages about the future for for kids today. I'm not I'm not hearing these things and so after time. I just Kinda developed a hunger to hear those things again and realized that I had to really restructure honestly my whole life to bring bring everything back into balance with WHO I am. You know I I spoke at the beginning about. I've always been this way. I mean I came out like this take care about nature and so coming back to that has been like a rediscovery of myself which is very empowering as a woman but there really weren't any any conversations happening on climate which is why I started doing the work I do I would go outside. For example there was a time here in Dalton where it it was like ninety degrees in like February for like three days in a row and I walked outside. Do bus duty because I have to escort my students to the bus every afternoon and every person I passed said Oh. Isn't this weather so nice. Like what a treat you know to have this in February and for me I I walk outside and it's a reminder of the existential crisis that we have hanging over our heads and it's very threatening and anxiety inducing to to me to not only be in an environment that reminds me every day that we are moving closer and closer and closer to catastrophe and everybody around me doesn't notice visit..

Fortunately to said, ISIS attack into the United States across the border with Mexico. I wondered what other surprises maybe things that aren't Joey say, as spectacular is that, but other little tidbits of come your way for this process of. Terra gatien. I don't call myself an interrogator. I'm an interviewer researcher. Okay. We always tell the ISIS guys were not interrogators. Okay. 'cause they see plenty of them. Well, it's been fascinating to hear about plots that, that the intelligence put together. So when they plotted to tack back in Europe, we ask every European every, every westerner that we interview where you invited to attack back in your home country. And some of them say, yes and one like I told you told us quite in-depth about how they were sending people back and he said, a good friend of his from Germany was declared dead. He went to the guy's house and talk to family and said is really bad, and they all said, no but they didn't know where he was. And he told us my friend had told me when we came together from Germany, that he wanted to prepare and go back and make tax injure money. So it's friend as far as he knew at gone back and the Termine police are currently searching for him. And we handed over everything we had as if. We don't generally share our information with police and intelligence. But if it's, you know, imminent attack, we of course, to and in my case we did, if they catch the guy, they'll charge him, of course, but this particular guy told us that they did face altering surgery in Turkey. I don't know if you know this, but turkeys place that's well known for plastic surgery. Yeah. Yeah. People go there for, for, for Europe for plastic surgery, 'cause bought cheaper, better know it safer, but it's cheaper and hair plugs. So they would change the shape of their eyes. They would give them hair their men that had lost hair, and then, of course, they would also try to pick people that were European looking and some them back. And so for me, that's always fascinating fascinating. We, you know, we talked to one guy that told us he had raped fifty women. Yeah. And so horrific that I decided to go full on into it. And I said, tell me how that worked. Tell me exactly how that was a matter of fact about it. Yeah. And you know, he really reminded me of the banality of evil that you hear about with, with Nazis that followed orders. You know, that said, well, you know, my leader told me to do that. So I did it. And basically, this guy was a young, man teenager, you know, older teenager and said, we needed socks in our leaders told us that this is fine. We should do it. So he was speaking about going and getting is easy. Women out of place where they're being held a slave and systematically, raping them. You get the appreciably. These people have any, any sense of, of inner morality that, if the, the mullah's told them to, to go poke their mothers I out with an ice pick. They do it. I think some of them would kill their own parents. Yeah, I do. And. In this case, I wouldn't call him a psychopath. I would call him. I really lost and wounded individual. He had a horrible upbringing, and he was just completely lost and went into ISIS, and he told us that in Syria, we would hear that, when the, the people were trained, they had to go to sharia, and that's religious training. I just indoctrination, and they had to go to weapons training. We heard that, that training took place near prison break dozen move here. So I wanna finish that story.

"Becoming a hot topic. We're seeing it more and more in infertility rates or declining among couples they're saying, which is the good news despite the rise of fertility treatments such as in-vitro fertilization. The fertility rates have actually decreased on US women of childbearing age matter of fact, looking at it a certain way with numbers two point four million women had problems with infertility in nineteen eighty two way back in the day compared with about one point five million as of today, so many people think that the difficulties getting pregnant are increasing because of the greater use of fertility treatments and the m vitro fertilization, but that's just not the data says Dr shandra who's a research scientist with the National Center for health statistics. Part of the CDC shandra noted that many women are having children later in life than in the past decades and the right of infertility among older women has not increased she said at all so contrary to public opinion infertility and impaired challenges with that are not on the rise among women of reproductive age in the United States. So that's good infertility in the ability of a woman to conceive after at least a year of unprotected sex with her husband or live live in partner. They say is the challenge and there's some overlap between infertility in these issues. So. They're not the same. The challenge really comes down to education, and it comes down to education in the lower income brackets to make sure that. The sexual education is there, of course, at the younger ages, but also that fertility education understanding how the whole process works. How lifestyle does affect it? And really getting the lower income brackets to be helped and served in this way. So that they can take care of themselves. But also make get quality decisions in these areas will make a big difference as well for fragility. We always think we talk about this quite a bit that because of the toxins in the environment. We have a lot of plastics and the BP as a and in all of that that's in the plastics, which is a hormone disruptor, and then you've got different chemicals phthalates in in so many PF as that are in different cleaning supplies, and that sort of thing, we we have these chemicals around is when we've been concerned that they're indication disruptors, and they we should be because they do affect the hormones in a negative way. But when we see that on a regular basis, and then decide to really make a move on it we have to make better decisions for a family. So that we're not around the chemicals even still with the rates, not increasing infertility. We still have to make sure that we're making good choices in order for the body to function at its peak level, triple eight two eight three seven two seven to give us.
