Gene-Altered Squid Could Be The Next Lab Rats

"Okay Nell. Greenfieldboyce last year, you visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts. Tell me about it. What was it like? So it's sort of beautiful location right there on the coast of Massachusetts and you go inside. In you know, they took me to this room full of kind of burgling aquariums everywhere and. All of our exotic animals, the guy giving me, the tour was Brett Grassy and his official title. There is manager of Cephalopod operations. It's amazing title. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight PAJAMAS, squids. These ones are native to Australia. We've got our octopus church, which is the pygmy zebra octopus, their native to Nicaragua small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than table. A. Table Grape. Nice. Yes. So they're they're looking at all kinds of squid and octopus is to try to find ones that you are easy to take care of that reproduce. quickly, that are going to be good to be sort of like the next lab rat and their work involves everything from the very latest high tech kind of gene editing tools to just like a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor. Why rocks? Well, they use them to make like little habitats in the tanks but they also use them to way down some of the lids. So octopuses are notorious for being able to kind of escape out of their enclosures. I've heard of this in aquariums. Octopus have been known to climb out and wonder around. Yeah, they're clever. You know. So when I visited Bret told me, there were roughly around three thousand cephalopods under their care there. But honestly walking around and looking in the tanks, you can hardly see any because they like to hide in those rocks and you know other little things, little containers. Keepers put in their tanks at one point read opened up this one plastic container and reached into the water and pulled out this little like like terra cotta pot and inside was this California two spot octopus. She's right down in there. Because see her eyeball, fairly see her. Yeah, and so basically, this is a kind of a common Dan either they're gonNA find rocks or. Some sort of basically dark enclosure sometimes. So this was a female octopus sitting on her eggs, and while we were looking at her, she's sort of shot out some water at us. She's of trying to skirt some water here. She thinks that I'm going to give some food or she's just trying to say you know I'm sitting in here taking care of my eggs and You know come back another time so now. Now. If you had a podcast called nell spies and octopus I would listen to it will we would have a lot to talk about because cephalopods are pretty crazy i. mean they have these sophisticated brains, they can solve puzzles, they can change their skin color like an instant. They can re-grow arms, they travel using jet propulsion. I. Mean. Some people have said they are as close to aliens living on Earth as we've got. that. is so cool. Honestly, we do a whole episode just about cephalopods, but I WANNA go back to this research question about using them as model organisms. So why CEPHALOPODS in particular? Well. It's all those odd features that makes them interesting to biologists I. Mean, for example, I mentioned their brains, you know the they're clearly sophisticated problem solvers, but their brains just look completely different from our own like they showed me one in a glass vial that looked almost like a triangle shape and you know there's brains that look like doughnuts that wrap around the Esophagus, you know at the same time, we know that some of their brain chemistry. Chemistry has got to be somewhat similar to ours because there have been experiments at how octopuses react to the drug ecstasy. Right? It seems to make them like little more friendly and cuddly to. So you know it's it's just fascinating to look at these creatures that are on the one hand. So different and on the one hand similar and studying, them could help scientists see what's necessary and what's not for being able to perform you know amazing mental feats. Feats like the ones people can do, and apparently you know some cephalopods seem

The First Gene-Altered Squid Has Thrilled Biologists

"Some of the weirdest creatures on the planet are CEPHALOPODS, animals like squids and octopuses. Now, in the Journal current biology scientists say they've managed to tinker with the jeans of pod in the lab NPR's Nell. Greenfieldboyce, reports on why a gene-altered squid is such a big deal. Read Grassi's official job title is manager of Cephalopod Operations when I recently visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts, he showed me around a room full of burgling tanks. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight pajamas squids. These ones are native to. Australia. We've got our. Church, which is the pygmies zero octopus, their native to Nicaragua very small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than a table grape. The work here involves everything from the very latest high tech gene editing tools to a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor the rocks are used to make habitats in the tanks and two way down the lids. So octopus are notorious for being able to escape out of their enclosures. These critters have sophisticated brains that look nothing like our own. They can solve puzzles, change their skin color in a flash and travel using jet propulsion Josh. Rosenthal is a researcher at the Marine Biological Laboratory. He says, these animals evolved completely independently from us, their relatives or. Things like clams in this provides an opportunity to compare them with us and see what elements are in common and what elements or you need. The problem is there's been no way to modify their genes and being able to do that is really important. Most lab biologists study just a few species like mice and fruit flies because the gene editing technologies for them have been all worked out. This makes it easy to study genes role in behavior, disease and treatments, but none of that was available for cephalopods. So Rosenthal and his colleagues have been building those tools I using a squid that lives in the waters around woods hole a researcher named Karen Crawford had figured out how to fertilize. Its eggs in the lab. So the team did that and then injected gene altering materials it wasn't easy. The fertilized egg is surrounded by a tough almost rubbery coating for months we have needles break. We couldn't figure out how they get it, but they finally did it and turned off a pigmentation gene that normally makes small dark spots on the squids skin. Those spots are missing on the altered baby squid pigment genes are easy because you can see them. Right. You can see if it's working as things develop Kerry Alberton is a member of the research team she says for her this is a game changer. This is something that honestly if you ask me five years ago if we'd. Be Able to do I would have just giggled and said I dream of it but you know I didn't think it would be possible and yet here we are other Squid Biologists or equally thrilled Sarah McNulty's with the University of Connecticut. She says, it's incredibly impressive that they've gotten this to work. This was like a huge advancement for staff upon researchers all over the wrong. We should all be pop bottles of Champagne. This is amazing. She says this particular squid can't live long term a lab it just gets too big but she says it's proof of what's possible and the researchers are already working with smaller creatures. They haven't those tanks to alter genes and them to Nell Greenfieldboyce NPR news.

Why Do Flying Snakes Wiggle In The Air?

"Madison Safai with NPR science correspondent Nell Greenfieldboyce. Hey, now. Hey, Mattie, so now you have. Both weird and amazing for us today which I feel like is Kinda right in your wheelhouse. Aright well I hope my repertoire is a little more expansive than either but I'll take weird and amazing Yeah, so you know how snakes kind of undulate or slither when there are moving around serpentine baby, let's go I like it, so this undulating is how they get around like on the ground or in trees. And in fact it turns out snakes that fly even do it when they're sailing in the air snakes on a plane. No, please sorry I just had to get one of it out. And now we can focus so okay. Okay? All right I'll give you I'll give you one. Yes, but we're not. We're not talking that kind of thing we're talking about. You. Know flying snakes like that live in south and Southeast Asia. You're aware of these snakes right? Yes, I am very aware, but I don't know necessarily that our listeners are so. Yes, there are real snakes that hand fly which I feel like for some people is the stuff of nightmares, but to me. It's just amazing now. I definitely have heard people say like. Do we really need to talk about flying snakes range. Twenty. Seven things gotten bad enough like can't. This is just like yeah, if you're not a snake person, this is a problem, but in the real world these snakes exists not to torment us, but to just live their lives. They cruise along the tree branches. You know up hunting things up in the trees, and sometimes to get down to the ground or another tree, these snakes actually launched themselves into the air, and they kind of glide down at an angle. The snake looks like swimming in the air. And when it's swimming. It's undulating. So that's Jake so high and he's a researcher at Virginia Tech and he's been studying these snakes for nearly twenty five years and one of the things he's been wondering about is like why snakes do these movements in the air. Why do they undulate and you know he thought? Maybe they're just doing it out of having. You know because like snakes when they propel themselves on the ground up a tree or in water. They do wiggle like this right, so it's not to think that when the snake jumps into. into the air, the snake goes. Hey, snake I under late. That's what I should be doing I'm just GonNa undulate snakes got undulate. Now. You know that's what they do. Yeah, they're in the air and they're out. What do I do? What do I do you know snake I snake. It seems plausible on the other hand. It's possible that these motions actually might have purpose like. Maybe they're doing something to help the snake.

Scientists Find The Biggest Soft-Shelled Egg Ever, Nicknamed 'The Thing'

"This next story is about a strange fossil found in and Arctic as NPR's Nell Greenfieldboyce. Report scientists were astounded when they finally realized what it was a couple years ago, a paleontologist named Julia Clark was visiting a colleague at a natural history, museum, and Chile the two were chatting about fossils SINISA. Hey, you know you should see this thing we collected. And he said we call it the thing. The thing wasn't a bone, but what was it exactly? No one knew it was about. The same size and shape is a deflated football. I just take one look at this thing, and it's the thing and. That is a giant deflated AIG a soft shelled egg to be precise, the biggest one ever found now today some snakes and turtles and lizards lay eggs with soft flexible shells, but they're rare to find in the fossil record. We did not realize said soft shelled eggs could even get this big Clark who works at the University of Texas at Austin collaborated with her colleague from Chile and. And other researchers to study this egg in the journal Nature. They say it was likely laid by a Moses Sore, a twenty foot, long marine lizard that lived some sixty six million years ago. The enormous egg thrilled paleobiologist like yaws Meena Vamon of university, I mean just thought Oh. This is fantastic. That's because she was making her own discoveries about ancient soft shelled eggs from dinosaurs in. In the past scientists assumed that dinosaurs had hard shelled eggs like their living, relatives, Crocodilians and birds, now in the same issue of the journal Nature Vehement and her colleagues described fossils from two very different dinosaurs. We're definitely here dealing with the very first evidence for completely soft-shell non mineralized shells. Their chemical analysis shows that the young dinosaur offspring were surrounded by soft shells much like the. The shells of turtle eggs, vitamin says it looks like the earliest dinosaurs started out with soft shelled eggs hard shelled eggs evolved later. The dinosaur calcified egg is something that is not ancestor that is not set of primitive feature of all dinosaurs, and now that researchers have shown how to find soft shelled eggs in the fossil record.

This is the podcast where act as a personal narrator for you for free usually from blogs sometimes from books in either case always with permission from the authors and we have five shows where we do this search for optimal living daily to check out the other topics we cover buffer. Nells get right to it. As we optimize your life seven strategies for effective daily habits by Anthony and Garo of break twitch dot com. It's safe to say that we all have habits. We'd like to change at least one area of our lives with each day that passes. It becomes more of an uphill battle and is not entirely our fault entrepreneurs and APP startups are chasing big paydays by attempting to reduce the effort required for us to do just about everything whether it's calling a cab with lift or getting packages delivered from Amazon. Most things take significantly less effort than they used to. Yup Technology is making us lazier that race to the bottom of required effort in the history can be completely destructive to start and sustain a new habit that requires increased motivation. Comparatively takes more effort than ever. It doesn't make it any better that we're starting to get used to instant gratification. From our efforts as well I found that one of the most effective ways to make any substantial change is to start by implementing small easy to tackle actions and then building from there. Pick something you want to work on and break it down to one of the smallest possible denominations while. I'm certainly not perfect. There are some strategies at have L. me continue on with my daily habit journey while one small action every day may seem insignificant. It is enduring nature of the strategy that actually makes it substantially better with that in mind here strategies to build effective daily habits. So you can start right now. Strategies for effective daily habits star smaller the best way to establish a habit is beginning with something that you can one hundred percent absolutely do every single day you might feel pointless when you're doing five push ups per day but your ability to knock it out. Every day is what matters? It takes about sixty days for habit to become part of your brains expected routine. Keep it small in the beginning is more important to do the action than to have the action be effective during that time. Don't miss two days we all have mishaps or as when things simply don't happen in fact it's not the. I missed out. Matters is the second one once you drop. A habit is actually harder to restart it than it is to start out in the first place. If you

"Across Australia graduate students are always on taught deadlines to deliver a major work of original research. But now they're all important. Experiments are suspended or hanging on a precipice locked out of their labs or unable to travel to their field research sites. Many of lost the part-time jobs that pay rent or feed their families and some now also wondering what the future is for jobs in science in a post pandemic world. Could this pandemic trigger a as next GEN? Brian drying something that people don't realize about a PhD is that it's very isolating. You're like your. I'm in an office with other people for sure but we're all working on very different things and very niche things. Yeah it's really hard to to not feel learn in this when you've got that initial stress the initial problems that come with doing a PhD and then you wack pandemic on top of this is really Problematic for most of us being in a PhD being so isolated in this line of research. Which is why we get into it. We want to be independent research. Is We want we? It's our own body of work you know it's professional but it's personal and emotional. It's this thing that you divide basically three or more years of your life to and the idea of more isolation. I wasn't immediately helming but as as the month of gone on it's been it's been quite difficult. Scientists get this ID. We have the stereotype of being quite stoic and emotionally removed. It comes from the idea that we the work that we do is at. Its core unbiased survey of the world around us. Become at anything bias. What you're observing. What you're experimenting on So in creating a dialogue around it being okay to tell people what. You're feeling personally without letting gory. This old preconceived notion that talk about your feelings as a scientist today passionate young scientists open up it is a well established fact that went into PhD Students. Experience distress and one in three are at risk of a common psychiatric disorder. The focus the hours a PhD demands a damn hard at the based times.

"As a child. Rinella grew up in a small community outside Knoxville Tennessee. Rinella was the second child. She had an older sister named flow. Anna and two younger siblings. Marcus and Robin her parents do e Annie met in college. They married after. Dewey had enlisted in the Army Air Corps. Any Finish College. Do we want a purple heart? And after the war he continued his education. So Anne worked as a schoolteacher and do he worked for the US Department of Energy so he made some good use at his time. Back in college had a masters degree in Chemistry and Physics and he was very invested in a safe storage of nuclear waste. Sounds like a smart guy. Yeah absolutely and Rinella grew up in this ideal environment. It was virtually crime free. And this was a town where she and her siblings could. Just hop on their bikes. Anytime go downtown. See a movie or use the Community Swimming Pool. It was kind of one of those pre planned communities for the nuclear power plant scientists. So the kids didn't even know what their parents position was at the company. But that's pretty much what it all revolved around but they were also religious rain. Ls saying in the choir of the Baptist Church and when she was in elementary school her classes were segregated but her high school actually became the first integrated school in the south in nineteen fifty five so at least in part because of the large population of these government scientists. Rinella schools were quite exceptional. The science were excellent of course and the children began learning a second language by the time they were in the second grade so it really gave her a lot of advantages in life her. She was always at the top of her class and was taking all the advanced courses she could. She's also in the marching band spinner weekends at Football Games drive INS and other activities common in the nineteen fifties. Yes he just watch American graffiti. That was kind of what it was like. Right right yeah. Drinking was less of a problem than in most communities because this county they lived in was completely dry. Yeah that's amazing how to combat alcohol. Well I mean if you really want the alcohol you could drive out of the county and get it sure but it's certainly made it harder on the kids in a lot of their parents didn't even have booze in the house which. I don't know about you but the first blues I had I snuck from my parents. Liquor cabinet will. It's where you get it right exactly and there's not just a dry county but a lot of lot of Baptist people and they don't look at alcohol. Is that interesting anyway now? I think it might be a no no for them completely. It certainly not encouraged note therefore remark so after high school. Rinella went to East Tennessee State University as a nursing student while they're Rinella got good grades in competed in rifle shooting. Yeah funny when you think about Ed. Just the way said that. I'm thinking here's a student right getting the grid. So but yeah. He's a marksman let's Tennessee. It's the south right and. I think there's you know more familiarity with guns in the south or is that just a a cliche. No I think that's probably true. Yeah we'll why she was there. This is when she met her. First husband. William Edward Dos it and he went by Ed but young ad had a very different childhood. He had many losses in his life. And I guess the most dramatic I would say was his mom's death. This happened on Easter morning. Nineteen fifty six when Little Edie was just eight years old and he woke up in the morning to find his mother on the floor beside his bed. Dead of a heart attack and just two months later. His Dad died from cancer. So Eddie was an orphan and he ended up moving in with his aunt. And uncle was kind of tough Lou eight-year-old cured get up in the morning and mom's dead on the floor. Can you imagine it's just? It's horrible so he had a much rougher upbringing then ray Nella dead but he was just a real go-getter and as a child. Everyone said he was exceptionally kind in high school. He played some football but he also worked on the school newspaper and he was a member of several clubs. Once he was in his senior year he was given the award for the Best School Spirit. Then he went to college on a football scholarship and he continued to date his high school sweetheart in his freshman year. Everyone thought these two would get married but then he met right now at college in broke up with the girlfriend not an unusual phenomenon. Guess so ED graduated with a business degree. He and Renault got married when she was a senior in college. Now the story I always liked Nell is mom. She didn't approve of that and she apparently knew how to hold a grudge. But she didn't speak to Ed for the first thirteen years of their marriage. Well that's serious grudge holding right. Guess so you really love my mother-in-law. She doesn't talk to me. But when you look at the big picture it kind of makes you think Did Rain Nella get some of that kind of personality from holding grudges or well at decided? He wanted to be a lawyer and he started taking classes at the University of Tennessee Law School in Nineteen Sixty nine ray. Nella began working as a nurse after she graduated in nineteen seventy two at graduated from law school. He had inherited his family's farm. Both of his parents were deceased so he would call himself a farmer and a country lawyer. But it's funny he always said I'm a farmer I and a lawyer second even though he would really end up being very successful as a lawyer did a good job. He had quite a career absolutely really popular as well. It worked in criminal defending people in need. Yeah he liked to help the poor people. Then in nineteen seventy eight. Renaudot gave birth to their first child. Maggie dice it and they then moved to the family farm. Young family lived in a mobile home on the property. As Ed built a new house they worked hard. He built the house entirely from lumber from his own trees. He had an architect who designed the home and he had a contractor friend who advised him on how to do things but basically he built this place. So that's pretty impressive to me. Sure is in nineteen eighty two. When a district attorney general retired decided to run for that job and the funny thing is once. He entered the election. His mother-in-law had a change of heart. Suddenly Ed was an okay guy. Who's now worthy of my attention right? Which really got crate? But she enjoyed this attention and she would be photographed with him at campaign events as much as possible. But Ed took it in stride you now. That's my mother-in-law. Whatever I'm going to be nice to. Everybody and Rinella was a good wife. She was working really hard to help them with this campaign. So it's not like they were on the outsor- anything. The marriage was really good for a long time. And when Ed Din win this election the family celebrated the local. Sheriff gave Ed a five shot. Pistol telling him now. He needed a gun to protect himself. Because he's putting away bad guys and they might come after him but that wasn't a gun guy then the next year at an Rinella had a son William Edward Dawson Junior. So now the family had big Edie and little Edie Ed had a secretary named K and she was married to a guy named Steve Walker and the two couples K. In Stephen Ed. Ray Noah were friendly and they did some socializing from time to time when K had a son who they named Kevin in nineteen eighty four. She left her position and ED's office and Henry now had a third child whose name Katie born in nineteen eighty five so rinella never visited the walkers but ed ended up spending a lot of time there and you might ask why they spent a Lotta time why. He spent a lot of time there because he was screwing k. Well I'm just thinking you know. Things must have been not perfect with he and Rinella by then if he's out having an affair her maybe he was just bored who knows but K. was very fond of him and that's part of the issue. A lot of people think K. Was really in love with Ed. But he wasn't going to leave rain Allah and we don't know if that's because it wouldn't look good if he was afraid of her. Maybe we don't know. But then in nineteen eighty AK had a second son who she and her husband named Kyle and although her husband Steve Did know about it until years later kyle was actually Ed's biological child the product of this affair kind of love child. We didn't know about birth control too. Well I'm sure there was some knowledge of it but who knows. Maybe she wanted to have a baby kinda nasty to pass it off as her husband. Well I don't know Dick. I almost think it's kind. Maybe you don't agree with me but I almost think it's kind of a kind decision. What good is it going to do their family now? They have two sons. What good is it if she tells her husband? The son is not biologically yours and maybe she didn't even know one hundred percent. That's a possibility but I mean I'm just one of these people. I think sometimes not most the time but sometimes holding back. A harsh truth can be an act of love controversial. But it's how I feel I'm GONNA leave it at that okay now. Nineteen Ninety right now retired from nursing and she concentrated on raising her children and managing the family farm. Dave Leaf was a nice man. Who's a friend of ED? And he had a pool. Nello take your children. Today's house to swim in the summer other than that. There was really no connection between Renault and Dave while they were very different people. I mean she really valued education and Dave was a high school dropout. Who worked as a barber? Not that. There's anything wrong with that but it's a much simpler job than ads. Still Dave was very likeable and well known in the community is a good guy. You know that same year ED started to have stomach pains now. He said in a board meeting for local farmers that he had the meanest away from the world. Who's trying to kill him even though he didn't smile and he said everyone's still took it as a joke. They all understood. That Renault is a real force. Probably wasn't the easiest woman to live with. Now I mean what can you say about right Allah from what we know. She was wearing the pants in her home. No matter who she was married to and you didn't want across her she could hold a grudge dislike her mom. I guess but then tragedy struck in October of nineteen ninety one because that was admitted into the hospital he thought it was just for an appendectomy but during that surgery a Denno carcinoma was found on his appendix and too small intestine so they did some further exploratory surgery and they found that he had cancer. That had metastasized to several organs. It was just all over his abdomen so there was no chance of curing him of that

Coronavirus: When Will It End?

"In the US? We've been hearing all kinds of different dates at first president. Trump was saying that we could be back to business as usual by mid April. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go bicester and it was clear that wasn't happening. We will be extending our guidelines to April thirtieth since then all sorts of dates have been flying around they forbid may at the earliest one way is extending its shutdown to June seventh and some politicians. Just throwing their hands in the air. Everybody wants to know one thing. When is it over? Nobody knows that outside the US. We're hearing that. Some places are the end of this like just this week. Wuhan the epicenter of this outbreak lifted their heavy restrictions. Tonight seventy six days later Wuhan ends. This look down around. Sixty five thousand. People have left Wuhan on trains and planes within hours of that lockdown ending residents of finally free to do that. Move simple things the streets once more on. Today's show is China really done with this corona virus. And what does this mean for the rest of us? How long could it be until we get our lives back to help sort through these questions we? I called up Dr Swap Nil Michele at Imperial College London and he told us well one of the tough things here is that a lot of countries like the. Us Cut a light stop. It has become very difficult to contain it now right. It's almost like every country. It was old. None of this should be fine. We should be. They should be fine but then suddenly after two week everybody or should we are not in a good state to find out if we can get into a good state swap null and his colleagues a building models based around what we know about this pandemic and these models are reaching high places where it is. The Boris Johnson started taking this pandemic seriously once he saw a model from swap mills. Colleagues showing. How many Britons would die if the country didn't take measures to stop it. How did you feel when Boris Johnson took the model of you know of your colleagues and that was what inspired him to change? Refilled ridiculed? The was the first thing and refund tangled. At least they have agreed to us now. And you'll have something that might help us to literally save people so we've been vindicated. Recently swap nells team started looking at whether the measures that countries are taking to stop this corona virus. All these social distancing is actually working and putting us on the pop out of this. They created a model which looked at how quickly this virus is spreading and the death rate and then they looked at eleven European countries places like Italy Spain France and Germany. They then created a couple of scenarios one. What if these countries had done nothing business usual and then to what actually happened off debates social distanced? So what did they find? It was very much evident that the steps like social distancing Stopping schools having a lockdown has helped to control Perriman. It flattened the cat yes. It has quite undergo so for example. According to swap knows model by starting these measures in mid March Italy averted almost forty thousand deaths by the end of that month. The model also calculated that social distancing save lives in all the countries to now. This is a model but evidence from the real world is starting to show something similar just this week. The World Health Organization in Europe said that they're noticing these trends countries that put in strong restrictive measures like Germany and Spain. The seeing drops in the rate of cases and deaths compare that would say Sweden who've been more lax. They're now seeing a fresh surge of cases so on the whole the countries that have done lockdowns flooding. The governor is happening but we still need some bank. How much more time? When does life go back to normal? So when will it end is is literally a question that we really don't have much idea on right now so you had to bet like me and my friends. We will all guessing when we thought we would go back to our normal lives. What what do you think so this is just what I think we might have to be under a lot of measures at least up till June Gin. At least at at least right it does not at most at least right okay. So if we don't really know when this will end what are the clues we should be looking for to know that we're heading out of the woods friends over at the general podcast talked. Dr Anthony Fauci. He's part of the Corona virus taskforce advising the president even know who he is anyway. Edry says that we need to start looking for a drop in the numbers. You have to see a really steep decline on a day by day basis. But you don't WanNa see a little sore tooth up and down up and down. That looks like it might be trending down. It's not like it's trending down. It's got a light steep going down. And when you see that then you could start thinking about that but you gotTa make sure you're absolutely going in the right direction. When Anthony Talks about numbers going down he's talking about new cases now. That can't tell you the whole story though because testing in America has been so higgledy-piggledy that it's really hard to know if we're capturing all the people who just got infected so there's other clues that we can look at to save almost out of this like you can look at hospitalizations or the death rate. Now Anthony says something to keep in mind with the death rate is that there's a two to three week lag between someone getting sick and then dying so are the last thing that stop when the deaths stop. Then you know you're in good shape in Wuhan new cases and deaths had been dropping consistently for about five weeks before China lifted the restrictions over here in the US. It's early days and in many states cases and deaths are still on the rise but he is a promising sign in New York. The Governor says that hospitalizations slowing down. Okay so once we have more good signs like this and you infections and debts are definitely going down. We might see things. Stop to open up but Anthony told the journal. That won't mean that life will go back to normal right now. It's all physical separation. Six feet distance. No restaurants no bars no sports events when you gradually come back you don't jump into it with both feet you say you know. What are the things that you could still do and still approach normal? One of them is absolute compulsive hand washing the other one. Is You don't ever shake anybody's hands. That's clear I could see in certain places people saying. Hey we're going to get back to normal but guess what we have a restaurant that has two hundred seats and that's too much as a big restaurant. Like big restaurants has fifty seats. We're going to only let twenty five people in at the same time. Anthony says we'll have to be on the lookout suitcases pumping back up. And that means we'll still have to keep outdistance or maybe we have to forget about basketball for a little while only played ping pong in our case. It's more than six feet apart. I can. He didn't suggest that one. But bottom line is it's going to be gradual. It's not going to be all

Presenting Remotely In The Age Of Covid19

"Thanks for joining me today. Debbie thank for having this you know we are in strange times and this is For me I think a huge topic as people trying to figure out how to overcome some of the challenges of now suddenly working remotely. You know it's like a whole new world so I I'm wondering if you would talk a bit about how presenting remotely is different from presenting. Lives right well. First of all Presenting remotely has the technical challenges as you can imagine People get a little nervous especially the first or second or third time. They're doing it because not sure they can be heard. They're not sure they can be seen. Which means you should get on the the presentation fifteen minutes earlier to make sure everything's working the way you want it to do just as you would get to the site of a presentation earlier so the key thing that. I that I have deduced is. It's really different about presenting remotely versus presenting live. Is that if you're presenting remotely and you need to use visual aids to accompany you as most of doing business presentations. Typically you're using powerpoint or keynote or Presi in order to help make your point in order to to explain what it is. You're talking about to persuade your audience. When we've done that live traditionally. We may know that our slides aren't terrific. We may know that they're really not an aid for the audience. They're really more of a crutch for us as presenters. But we've let it go because if were good enough at presenting. We can overcome bad visuals folks because we're lives and so the audience can ignore the screen behind us and just pay attention to us or the audience. As you've told me in the past that you do when you're seeing a presentation that requires a lot of reading. You read this slide first and then pay attention to the speaker well if Speaker Yep if the speaker is just in a little box down at the bottom right hand corner of your screen or in some cases. You can't see the speaker at all. You're just looking at the slides. The speaker really has no No well certainly has no physical world to play because you can't see them and even if you can see them in there in the tiny little box in the right hand corner. They're playing a tiny little little role at the bottom of your screen and the right hand corner and now your slides and taking center stage and because of that it Nell be. Who's you to take a big deep breath and and and recreate slides? That actually will be a visual aid for your audience and not cue cards for you. Wow that's huge as making me new. I have to go back and reduce videos so okay. Sorry it's okay. You got a time exactly the good rating. That's the good news all the time. We spent driving to work all the time. We spent quite frankly getting professional closing on on days. We're GONNA sit in our officer or in our cubicle. All of that time is now hours. And that's time that you really really really should be spending on editing. Your powerpoint decks or your keynote presentations. You need to look at them and say to yourself. Okay I've known forever that these really weren't optimal and now I. I can't let this go any longer because I can tell you that you present virtually and your slide are bullets with tons and tons of taxed. Your audience is absolutely positively going to read it and then go back to what they were doing and if you have to download the presentation ahead of time and so they can read it ahead of time. They're not even in a show up or if it's mandatory to show up. They're going to have it on their screens so the think they're there but they're not gonna be there because there's no reason for them to be there because you are superfluous. You are not added anything to what your slides are telling them right. So so. The solution to this is as follows. You need to create slides or visuals. If you're in keynote or pretty. Your visual cannot be self explanatory. Every one of your visuals should have what I call the Factor the audience should see slide and think They should not be able to understand the slide without you to explain it and even more than that or coupled with that you should be feeding them this information that they cannot make sense of on their own one piece at a time and that's why God invented animation with powerpoint so that you can feed it to them one bite at a time so that people don't get overwhelmed so that we know that they're looking at what we want them to be looking at so that if you're so for example let's say that you now have to Do Training about About about A website or you're a bank right and you're going to be doing training for virtual colors or your virtual customer support and these are New People coming on board. And they don't know how the screens work and you're going to teach them how these screens work my advice when you share your screen rather than sharing screen actually for education purposes. I would do screen shots of the screen and put a circle around the part of the screen that you want them to be looking at. You know when you're talking about here's the field where you enter the customer's name. You put a circle around that field so it really draws their attention to what you so you're and you're in control of that then that's exactly right. Yeah that's interesting and by the way everything that we're talking about holds true when you are delivering a live presentation. You should still be delivering a live presentation using these tests. But when you're doing virtually it it just becomes exponentially more critical that you you follow these these rules that I'm talking about or or use these tools that I'm suggesting because if you do that a couple of things will happen number one. You'll have an audience riveted. They're not going anywhere. 'cause they can't figure out what's on the screen and they need you to explain it to them. That's the first thing the second thing is if you if you build the visuals in a way that you know they're looking at what you are talking about because you're using animation to build a bite at a time or you're putting circles around things or squares around things that you know you need them to be looking at now. You have an audience. That's not getting overwhelmed or confused. And by the way it right now in our lives there so much uncertainty. There's so much fear that when we do get to present to a group the last thing we want to do his layer on all that and using them right we can find a place for an hour or fifty minutes where we can provide education or or comfort or Frankly even convinced someone that what we're proposing is a good idea for them and that's a gift

Coronavirus Latest: Testing Challenges And Protecting At-Risk Elderly

"Hey everybody emily here so obviously. The biggest story in science is the corona virus and rising cases of its disease cove in nineteen. In the coming weeks. We're going to cover it a little more with regular updates on the latest news and science and today to help us do that. We are lucky to have not one but two colleagues from the NPR science desk correspondent Nell Greenfieldboyce. Hainault Hi Emily and correspondent John Hamilton page on high so krona virus. It's already impacting American society. And you're each going to focus on one part of the Krona virus story this week. Now why do you got for us? So one of the things I've been thinking about a lot is who is most at risk of severe illness from this virus and while there's a lot we don't know about exactly how deadly it is overall. We do know there are some things that we need to do for the most at risk people to keep them safe yes and John. You're recently in Washington state in Seattle. Which is the site of one of the biggest outbreaks in the nation? Votes rate is where the first use case of corona virus appeared back in January. Now it has hundreds of cases dozens of deaths and no efforts to slow down. The Corona virus have have really largely. Shut down the entire Seattle area. It's not quite a ghost town but it's pretty quiet there all right so in this episode. We'll talk about all of that efforts to get tested for the virus up and running in Washington state amid the slow roll out of testing kits by the Federal Government. And how we can help people who might be the most vulnerable to the virus. Okay now before. We dive into some of the details from the week. What's the latest on the virus and it spread and I should say we're taping on Thursday morning and things are moving. Pretty fast they are they are. I mean just in the past twenty four hours. There have been some pretty dramatic developments and you can kind of feel a shift. In tone as the nation grapples with this president. Trump has this travel ban for visitors from Europe that he unveiled in an Oval Office address the NBA has suspended its season here in the US in Germany. You've got soccer leagues just playing to empty stadiums. Even Tom Hanks and his wife announced that they had corona virus. And so you can see as testing increases cases across the. Us are going up. There's this real sense that things are accelerating here and people are paying attention in a new way. Yeah and we should say that neither of US actually here in the studio with us right now. Yeah so I'm feeling sick with the kind of sickness that like normally you might sort of like you know take some cold drugs and go to work but like these days they say to stay home so I'm staying home will. I'm feeling fine but because I was around people who might have been exposed to the virus during the time I was reporting in Seattle I have been encouraged to stay home for a couple of weeks just to make sure I'm not contagious. So now I want to ask you. Oh I hear a dog. Yeah that would be. This is Bella. Bella Bella has been wanting to be on shortwave for most of my life. This was an opportunity and she sees did so John Yourself Quarantine Nell. You're keeping yourself home to make sure you don't get anyone sick. You're both so responsible. Thank you So John. We mentioned earlier that Seattle. It's the center of something called a community outbreak. There's a few of those right now in the US. Tell us what that means. All it really means is that the virus is spreading in the general population. Right so in Seattle you know the first case was brought in from China and then there were a bunch of cases related to a single nursing home but those are both sort of isolated. Now it's all over the place so while I was in Seattle. I saw the public health system stop focusing on tracing individual cases. Start looking at clusters of cases and they are also emphasizing community wide efforts to slow down the spread so that Seattle's response and hosts a little more of what it all looked like when you were there. He used to live in the Seattle area. And I never saw the traffic so light as I did the past ten days at rush hour on I five you know. It was a breeze and a couple of days ago I was. I was walking through Seattle's Chinatown the Pike Place Market. These are both big tourist areas and it was strangely quiet. A lot of the restaurants were closed. There were signs explaining that Kobe. Nineteen is the reason and I should also say people's behavior Seattle has changed You know they keep their distance. They wash their hands. I passed a couple of bars that were still open. And you could see people sitting there but it was every other barstool. Yeah our people trying to get tested for corona virus in Seattle. Yeah definitely I mean everybody wants to be tested in a whether the symptoms or not and the problem is it is really taken a while to set up the system to provide all that testing. And why is that? Well you know my my colleague. Richard Harris has been reporting on that and one reason he's found is that testing for the kroner virus. It's not that simple. You have to extract viruses from samples taken from patients. Then you have to use this device that creates lots of copies of the virus. Then you need another instrument that looks to see if the virus is a genetic match with the corona virus so this is something that is sophisticated lab can do but a doctor's office really can't and John. Why is testing so important with a couple of reasons is really important? It's how you pinpoint an outbreak. You need it for contact tracing because you have to know somebody has it to go and look for other people who might have got it from them and later on as as things spread it tells you which communities are getting infected that sort of the point where Seattle for instance is right now within Seattle. What areas is the virus showing up and finally it tells you what percentage of people who have symptoms actually have corona virus if percentage were to go up over time. It would tell you that you're not winning but the testing is what gives you clues that allows you to follow the spread phillies have a trail. You now what do you think about that? I think it's interesting. It's a different way of thinking about diagnostic testing than most people. Normally think about it. Like normally you feel sick you go to the doctor. And the reason you're getting a test is so the doctor can determine your treatment like maybe you have strep throat in that. Means you need antibiotics. But in this case we have no proven antiviral treatment against this new virus. We don't have vaccine. All the treatment is basically the same kind of supportive treatment you would give someone with another respiratory virus. So it's kind of weird situation. Where the testing that sort of everyone's clamoring for is really of most use for protecting the community and giving public health workers information about what they need to do on a community-wide basis rather than individual patient basis. Yeah and initially the CDC. It wasn't even permitting private labs and universities to do testing that dramatically reduced available capacity for testing. But that's changed recently right. It has and now certain labs so called high complexity labs are they are allowed to run their own tests. But that's not really actually the biggest problem. The biggest problem is setting up the system to collect samples for testing because they have to be sent in for a lab. You don't want people to sort of descend on some doctor's office or a clinic where they might spread the disease yet. You have to test a lot of people really quickly so one solution I saw. Seattle is What they call drive through testing. It's something that they used in Asia and the idea is that you can get tested for corona virus without leaving your car and I actually spent a morning watching this happen. I it was in one of these multilevel level. Parking lots you know next to a hospital in northwest Seattle. So the morning I was there a nurse named Jeff. Cates would walk up to each car. He was in full protective gear. You know with the disposable gown the Globes a clear plastic face mask and he would greet each person as they arrived by name. Jeff and then play health. Now we're going to be doing your swabs today. So he takes these these two swabs one from each nostril. Lean your head back with a little so you know he. He collects these samples and seals them up in plastic tubes and they will be processed by a lab. That's only a few miles away so we're going to be testing for flu. Ab IN SV when we're also testing for covert wriggles. Back to you as soon as we can. Thank you feel better soon now. Only healthcare workers are being tested his way right now but it's important because they're the people that are on the frontlines of fighting the virus and so you gotTa make sure they're not sick still they don't take the infection to other staff or patients in healthcare system. Also there has been talk of expanding this kind of drive through testing to for instance first responders who might have been in contact with somebody who had the virus and eventually even to

"Here. And I love your spirit Nell. My question is why hasn't your personal contact? How come they aren't able to get an answer for you? Because they're in the building. I would think that that HR person or hiring manager is going to be able to tell them that feedback or be more comfortable with that than telling you. I don't know. She did give me feedback along the way when I wasn't getting anything. But it was very general. Like, we're still coming through candidates things like that. They never gave her any direct information on you know. Yes, or no. Or you know, why I don't know if my requirement was off the Mark or what I don't have how well, do, you know, this person who submitted your resume for you? I actually haven't met her in person the company is in a different state, but we have conversed over Email quite a bit as she asked me a lot of questions about what I do. And how I got there. And but how'd you had a good background? Oh. Trying to mine a friend of mine who used to work with her, and they are still friends. She lives in the same city. So here's okay. So here's what's going on. I know what you're trying to do. But I just want to be very honest with you. You may not get what you want. And I don't know that you can push much more. Because here's what's going on. You have asked for details. You have asked for for this contact who is a mutual friend. So you you in this context have Mitchell friend, rather, you said crack, can you find out why I didn't get it. Have you asked that question of this contact? I haven't yet and I was about to. But I wasn't sure if that was the best one of okay with that. I'm okay with that. Because that person is not directly on the spot. They're they're not in HR. She was willing to submit your resume, which is exactly how I teach it. So good on you. So I wanna go to her and say, hey, listen. Zero pressure on this. I just want an answer because I want to learn and grow. I'm not going to object. I'm not going to do anything other than if there's something that is constructive that I can use to get better in another opportunity or in a future opportunity at this current company. Could you just I understand that HR is probably not going to get back to have Email twice. Would you mind? Just getting some feedback. If there is anything negative, all or something, I can work on would you mind getting that for me? Low pressure. Okay. But but it would really help me. And if you'd be willing I already oh, you big time for civilian resume. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And maybe send a gift card. How about that? Like just. Aphorism for lunch when I'm in town Aberdeen here yet good trying to do is. We're going to show appreciation, and we're going to lower the pressure bar and say, here's why I'm asking I don't wanna be obnoxious like go in address all of the potential elephants in the emotions in the room. Take all the sting out of that. And go that route do not Email HR again because let me just tell you something HR play. That's why I didn't think it would do any good..

So biologists long thought that colored egg shells were a bird invention? Yes. Meena vitamin is a paleontologist at Yale University. She wondered if colored eggshells were older, maybe as old as birds dinosaur ancestors take over after it's a relative of the velociraptor made famous in the movie Jurassic Park. This dinosaur is particularly interesting because over his worry the first dinosaurs that build openness. Sts instead of burying its eggs underground. And once you start to build an openness, your ex are exposed to the environment. Vehement says out their color could provide camouflage or help dinosaurs recognize their own eggs. So she and some colleagues studied sixty six million-year-old egg fossils searching for the two pigments a red one blue one that are known to mix and match and bird eggs, creating all of the beautiful colors.

"Nell, the trial of America's biggest serial killer. The film is a true story of an abortionist Kermit GAAS. Nell the story. Mainstream media tried to cover up because it reveals the truth about abortion. They said they couldn't use the word abortionist, but they could use the word Dr. That he was the they went back and said, okay. Can we use abortion doctor? No, we can't do that. They're still trying to bury this story. Yeah. They're afraid of it. And that's the thing. It's like the point was that he was not a diet trysts or. Gastroenterologist? He did abortions. And and bright. That's what he called himself. You know, Gosnell called himself an abortion doctor, but they're so afraid that this telling. This story that it's going to hurt the pro choice side and helped the pro-life side, if they just they even say the word, can I can I tell you something, you know, what hurts it would hurts. It is this cover up because when people try to cover up something this grotesque, you automatically go cheese. What else are they telling me if they would lead? You don't like the NRA most time most times leads the way they were the ones that said we have to have a a way to run your criminal history before you buy a gun. It was their Bill and their push that put it out there. It. It helps their credibility for them to hide something. I don't think Planned Parenthood places are like this. And I think those places are monstrous, but it's not like GAAS Nell. Yeah. You would think there'd be some common ground here. They would be a chance to go. Okay. Well, we can all agree on this. We can all agree that not inspecting abortion clinics. Endangers women. It causes blockage of light. And we need to be diligent about inspecting abortion clinic says we are about every other kind of clinic. I mean, you would think and and that's that's one of the things that's been most shocking to me since we made the film, these how resistance everybody is to just having a conversation about the truth of what happened in this situation. They're so afraid of is that they don't even wanna talk about it. And they still want to pretend it's not there was was he in real life. You've seen the video tapes. You know, it was it was bizarre when they first come in. And they come in to his house, and he seems. I don't know just casual about everything almost almost mentally handicapped. Calm, you know. Calm. Just I don't know. What just completely detached was that what he was really like. Yeah. I mean, he he had this sort of air of superiority about him. And he's still to this day thinks that he did nothing wrong. And that's going he's going to be. So he really when they came into his house. He had no fear. I mean, he was not afraid that they were going to discover something bad about him. Because he didn't he didn't think that he'd done anything wrong except in the money. He was trying to hide the money wherever we could because most of his especially his late term abortions that he did on the weekends where he took only cash, and it was it was were big pile of cash stuffed all around the house, and and hidden outages beach house, and I think he was concerned more hiding the cash than anything else, and he didn't seem to live large. I mean, you know, he he didn't they hire a housekeeper and his clinic was an absolutely. I mean, no, he didn't clean up themselves. Very well. That's for sure. So. If he did have extensive real estate holdings invested, you know, he he had to be houses and over seventeen properties. I believe. Tell me about the, you know, you there's one scene you go into the judge. And the judge is like I'm not making this about abortion. And I mean, that's kind of what this is. He's an abortion, doctor, and and you, you know, the the the prosecution who couldn't get a doctor at first at least to testify against no doctor would would testify why. Well, I think it's sort of, you know, I don't really know. I mean, I'd be guessing. But I think if that sort of medical brotherhood kind of thing, there's there's, you know, it's it's just bad form to testify against one of your own and not testify against Mangla. If you I mean, he wasn't doing experiments on people. But just honest to God just in cleanliness. This guy was a horror show, let alone what he was doing two girls. Right. Well, I think also the politics entered into it. I mean, he that the doctors had the idea probably correctly. If they testified in this. It was going to become a political circus, and they didn't want to be part of it. They they just didn't want to spend their time or their endanger their reputations by jumping in the middle of something this controversial, especially when they weren't involved. Really? They would just be testifying as expert witnesses. And you know, it wasn't there. Grind necessarily. The one of the shocking scenes in the movie is as they're pulling up to the courthouse. One of them says in the car. Okay. Prepare for zoo. Listen, don't, you know, don't answer any questions just keep moving forward, and they open the car door. And there is no one there. And there is no one in the in the trial in the courtroom. Nobody nobody from the press. And I it's a little shocking, especially for this time. You know, an age where the this is this is one of the greatest most horrific stories in American history. And no one was there to document it. Man, they just couldn't figure out a way to spend it, you know, they just couldn't figure out a way to actually cover the story and not risk helping tell the truth not not risk helping the pro-life move that that had to be what was going on. And they the the press stayed away from the trial until Kirsten powers believe it was wrote an op-ed saying, why isn't anybody covering this? This should be what we're looking at. And after that, it's sort of like, it kind of broke a little bit nationally, and then people came to the trial towards the end of it. And it's not one of those stories. I mean, it's it's truly amazing. You did a great job on the on the film. It has the creepy -ness of silence of the lambs. And and I don't say that lightly. It really has that kind of creepy feeling to it. But without any kind of sensationalism and without. Any gore? And it's because you say you want to go see the abortion movie. No, nobody wants to go. See an abortion. This is this was so shocking in its coldness, and in and how much you just had no idea happened that it is strangely. Not one of those movies that you want to look away from. Does that make sense to you? Yeah. I mean, and we really consciously made that effort, we we we we want to make something that is palatable, but can people can watch and let the let the facts for themselves. So we really really worked hard to try to make a PG thirteen movie that everybody can see. And I think the way that we did that is that we focused on detectives, and the lawyers we focused on the the heroes of the piece, but you the people who who can who caught guys now and who him to trial and convicted him, and it's amazing doing that. It made it made the movie more of a thriller in a courtroom drama than any, you know, shock gore moving right. What what's truly amazing to me is this is you'd see this on Sherlock? You've seen worse than this on Sherlock. And and really I how many shows I mean, she's been you were. You know? Or CSI? Yeah. You're you're part of those shows you see this stuff. Yeah. And this is this is done more tastefully than some of the stuff you've seen and you'll watch. But people will say I don't wanna see this because it's real. And that's why you should see this, Nick. I hope you continue to work. And and I wish you wish you lots of luck in the future and on this film. It opens when is it October twelve or twelve. October twelfth nationwide. And if you if you if you can make sure you bring friends lots of friends because this is not going to be reviewed, and if it is reviewed. I guarantee gets bad reviews is people are going to avoid it. They don't want it. Is there anything else that people can do to help? It spread the word. Well, you know, if you guys know movie dot com, there's we're have a number of advanced screening that we're doing around the country before before the release, and I think they're playing in Dallas tonight. I was going to stay here in Toronto to to make another. I'm doing now about Ebola. I get all the good ones. Sees. Good. There's a lot of screenings around the country. We're going to the Carolinas next week. We're in Washington DC this weekend and just check on the website and see if there's a screening near you, and you can sign up and go see the movie before it opens. Thank you very much.

I mean, and we really consciously made that effort we said we we want to make this something that is palatable. Take them can watch and let the let the facts for themselves. So we really really worked hard to try to make a PG thirteen movie that everybody could see. And I think the way that we did that is that we focused on the detectives, and the lawyers we thought focused on the the heroes of the piece, but you were the people who who can be caught guys now and who. Taking to trial and convicted him, and it's amazing. Doing that. It made it made the movie more of a thriller in a courtroom drama than any, you know, shock gore moving right. What what's truly amazing to me is this is the you'd see this on Sherlock? You've seen worse than this on Sherlock. And and really, I how many shows I mean, she's been you were, you know. Your son or CSI? Yeah. You're part of those shows you see this stuff. And this is this is done more tastefully than some of the stuff you've seen and you'll watch. But people will say I don't wanna see this because it's real. And that's why you should see this, Nick. I hope you continue to work. And and and and I wish you wish you lots of luck in the future and on this film. It opens when is it October twelve twelve. October twelfth nationwide. And if you if you if you can make sure you bring friends lots of friends because this is not going to be reviewed. It is reviewed. I guarantee gets bad reviews is people are going to avoid it. They don't want it. Is there anything else that people can do to help get the spread the word? Well, you know, the movie dot com. There's we're have a number of advanced screening that we're doing around the country before before the release, and I think they're playing in Dallas tonight. I was gonna wish I was there state here in Toronto to to make another. I'm doing now about Ebola. I get all the good ones. Jeez. Man. Good for you. There's a lot of screenings around the country. We're going to the Carolinas next week. We're in Washington DC this weekend. And so just check on the website and see if there's a screening near you, and you can sign up and go see the movie before it opens. Thank you very much. I appreciate it, Nick. And best of.
