37 Burst results for "Norway"
Fresh update on "norway" discussed on Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank
"Nine eleven we're looking at a fucking nuke over here and no one really asked a lot of follow up questions because that was so absurd and like any everyone who knew this was bullshit but like we were so scared of that that it was like, okay. Well, we'll give you a blank check to go to war well. Shortly after that, it was like this is about building a democracy for Iraq but we're already there we're already in war now. So there's really no lights to do it. This is like that too. I was told recently where Mike Anna do shows inside and the like. When did you make that decision like I guess when it was way worse? Yeah. So they get. Like a just a little bit and we Kinda, stop at flat in the curb was a real thing. This is the same thing of preying on people's idea of safety the same as it insurance cost so much 'cause you're lecture health what are you GonNa do not pay and you're going die yeah. That's definitely part of it I mean but like you they said. This was all about. Going like this and we had we had to go like that and we couldn't overwhelm the hospital system we need to. Fear was that right that we would overwhelm the hospital system and that people respirators saying we don't have enough respirators and now it's actually we don't use any respirators. Take all of this wall but he got you got you got to forgive him for that. Well, they're flying blind like I don't know the rest. Their respiratory system is failing respirator I dunno everyone the world got wrong. Respirators were done intentionally to fuck doctors are trying to help their patients and then a whole bunch Dr started realizing it was hurting their. Patients I'm not like casting judgement on the doctors that I'm just saying the fact of the matter is that the hospitals were never overwhelm anywhere and when I say that there's nowhere in the United States really that they ever reached one hundred percent capacity there's never happened and it was in the vast majority of the country it never even became close with. Cuomo was on TV going we need what was it sixty thousand ventilators from the federal government and we need the fucking Javid. Senator turned into a hospital. They had this navy ship, your the Central Park Central Park. Central Park. Became a hospital on all of this shit and they never got even close to the forty thousand or sixty thousand whatever it was respirators. We ended up giving away a bunch of the ones that we had because we realized they were killing more people than they were helping and only really extreme cases needed the ventilator the javits center never saw patients and just closed down. fucking back, the Central Park then closed. They never needed any of it. Now, I'm not saying were. Honest people who thought they would need it. I'm just saying that that a miracle Americans were convinced to do this under false pretenses, not that it necessarily intentional but that was the justification and it put it wasn't really false pretenses. It was like, Hey, we're singing projector like this. We gotta shut if it kept going like that we were fucked New York was a fuck city. Yeah, and then it was like now it's one of the best cities for. Absolutely and I don't know what exactly. Well. You know honestly people the streets edible I really think it's debate. What do you think SORTA slowing down? Well, look I mean if you're let me say this if your place is that didn't shut down. and. There's I think there's four states in America that didn't shutdown ever at all Sweden never shutdown Japan never shut down you can go back really good. Well, look I mean I'm just saying Sweden. You can kind of argue this right like Sweden they've basically done a little bit worse than the other then then surrounding countries then Denmark Norway where worse we'll know very beginning. It was like it was like, Hey, they're actually not worse off and then it got like real bad. Well, yeah. No I mean this Japan great at this point they've done worse. But really if you look at the majority of their problem at least half the deaths or in the ballpark of half the deaths and Sweden were in their nursing homes, they have a huge percentage of underwear things get talked. So if you kind of control for that, it's not that much worse than Denmark Norway they're about on par with Italy with England with countries like this, they're not brilliant but I'm just saying for what the shutdowns cost like the drastic costs that are all over the place. This would drive me crazy about people that like it's. So it went from being my point about Sweden's just that if you're going to justify what these shutdowns data I mean you justifying people dying for other reasons, you're justifying depression anxiety going through the roof domestic violence going up. Show, violence against children going up. The also kicking tens of millions of people out of work I mean destroying millions of businesses. You think that Sweden should be like way way way worse like you'd think for these lockdowns to be justified, they'd have to be saving a ton not a country that's on par with England. You know what I'm saying. So what happened was it started as we need fifteen days to flatten the curve and then when the curve got flattened and the hospitals weren't overwhelmed and they transitioned to, we need no new cases we need to defeat the disease. We needed all this shit and this became this goal that. Americans basically went. All right. We'll all stay home for fifteen days will give up life. Is Yeah. We're now like almost two hundred days later and people haven't gotten their focus. It was get used to it and they were like, okay. But we got that see this is the thing I'm not even I don't fucking know but I'm not even suggesting that when they asked for the fifteen days to flatten the curve, all these politicians were like this is our fucking trick to get him but once they got him, they certainly realized Oh. and then a lot of perverse incentives start coming up now all of a sudden. These mayors are governors rather who weren't really national figures fucking big national figures and they're on TV every day and they have all this ungodly power, and now you know they kind of enjoy this power in some way Cuomo right in the fucking book and everyone's doing their thing and so now you just create this weird thing where once you give people a little bit of this, fucking. Ring fucking poisons and so there are people there are human. Governor's sort of governor. It's also some dude. You know named whatever. Mike. Or Bill and that guys like we're talking about me. Yes. Tough. Not to human beings just like everyone else and. That's true too with a lot of these epidemiologists and people like that. WHO. are like. Oh. Look at thirty FAO. She's like this fucking guy. He's the TV epidemiologist like first off. Do you know what? Fuck in most serious fucking doctors think about the TV doctors? The lawyer a billboard on the side of the bus rides interest. Court, fucking my mother and a bunch of her fucking friends. She's a fucking psychoanalyst like and that's like I've known a lot of them go ask them what they think of Dr Phil. Joke to them and he got not that though. He kind of is kind of. Epidemiologists. fucking political figure who and I'm just saying don't think there wasn't any part of him that God off on going from being some random nobody to being V dude who everybody's listening to and the other thing about it is just that they fucking. All of the experts and this I don't blame them for because it's a novel virus. So fucking novel virus you know, but they all got it. Wrong they all got every. Novel virus me it's new new virus people don't know how this like fucking responds. They're basing it based off like okay. Well, here's the data we have so far, and here's how other viruses in the Corona Virus Family Act. So maybe it'll act this way or this way, and they have very little information they fucking no but they were out there the world. Health. Organization fucking was I if they were commending China at the beginning for the fucking job China's pockets. Hundred percent art descending with SARS right where they. Lowered it was SARS was the other one swine flu. There's one of them where they were like they hit for a bit. Because China told the Hyder..
Worldwide COVID-19 Cases Soar as Scientists Scramble for Response
"This week in America a grim and telling number. More than two hundred, thousand people have now died officially of Covid nineteen the House of Representatives held a moment of silence yesterday to acknowledge that painful milestone more people have been infected there than in any other country. Cases continue to climb states that suffered the most are recovering but infections and others are rising, which seemed to have been making progress in tackling the virus is against infections spreading fast and in Britain, and elsewhere there were expectations warnings of a second wave. I'm sorry to say that as in Spain and France and many other countries we've reached a perilous journey. With a vaccine still well down the line preparations are being made for an uncertain and tragic winter. And many governments have squandered precious time failing to prepare for what's to come. I think it's important to realize that each country experiences curb in its own way. Edward Car is the economists deputy editor. Europe. At the moment is going through a second wave cases in. India. Very high but overall it's been a consistent increase relentlessly such that they're announced note two million recorded cases day. And that reflects I think the both the nature of the disease and the insufficient grasp of the basic public health policy response that's required and are there any bright spots? Any positives to look too at this stage? Well, of course, in the background, which is hugely important has been fantastic and really impressive work by scientists and doctors, both to kind of work on the treatment protocols to find various medicines and to do research on vaccines. So that's all that's also entering in the background and it is beginning to have an effect on fatality rates, but there's a lot more to come on that. And what are the improvements on the medical side specifically. Well quite a lot of it's kind of really basic medicine. So when people first presented with what was thought to be essentially a respiratory illness, the focus was on the lungs people were put on ventilators in very large numbers vary eilly and that that wasn't always very good for them and didn't help them as much as was needed. Now it's realized this is a disease that attacks many organs in the body has stroke is a big problem that kids can suffer the heart damage and doctors a much better at keeping an eye on fluid levels on oxygen levels on treating the symptoms that might be harming various organs. So just in sheer sort of management of the disease that being big improvements. And then, of course, the medicines of and POPs one of the most important decks and methods zone is a is a very cheap steroid that can be bought and supplied in large quantities in that has for people who need oxygen and to need ventilation can lead to substantial declines in mortality of twenty to thirty percent. And the hope is that over the coming months, there'll be more medicines and. Vaccines which will bring that fatality rate down still more. and. What's your sort of overarching take on the the public health response. For the Public Health Response has been just much much more variable for a number of complex reasons. I think one problem political problem has been some differences on on what the priorities should be. Some countries have a ticket only favored keeping the economy open and Sweden's often held up as an example there possibly an idealized example because in fact, actually there were restrictions others have tried to keep the death rate down to zero by having a blanket. On the economy I personally think the both of those extremes are wrong. Sweden's actually had quite high death rate and quite a big blow to its economy compared with the neighboring countries, Finland Norway. Denmark. He's done some worse on both those measures. New Zealand has had a stunningly successful. Ability to keep the deaths right down but it's paid a very high price because it's shot the the whole country down and if you look at a country like Taiwan been even more successful on deaths and paid a much much smaller price in terms of the economy. And I think that that's because the countries that have been prepared to make trade offs and have had good public health can succeed in both reducing fatality rates and in keeping bits of the economy open. But what does that look like in detail? How should that that trade off actually be made you think? I think are two or three key components, and the first of those is a really granular testing and tracing operation. The second thing that's important is being sensible about the trade offs and then the third thing that's important is how to communicate this. I think people are quite goods in an emergency at taking difficult steps to change their lives but it's very hard to sustain and this will need to be sustained already need to stay for nine months but this'll go on for a long time yet before supplies all vaccines are plentiful enough for everybody to being vaccinated and even then the vaccines might not work that well or they're affect might be temporary so we're going to be living with this disease for a long time yet. I mean a lot of this advice was was starting to become clear even even months ago, and why do you think it is at different countries responses continue to be so divergent when the the best practice seem. To, be converging. I think that's a hard question to answer I. Think part of it was the enormous relief when countries have had a bad first wave came out of lockdown at the end of the spring, and in the summer. And there was a sense of cough people just thought thank goodness and governments having got through that desperate first phase of the disease themselves were relieved are never quite caught up. I mean the countries that have done this really really well, and I I think Taiwan is absolutely top of the class here have been good from the very beginning. and You perhaps feel at some other countries catching up in other places. In the United States, I think has to stand ups an example of this, the poor communication and the changes in rules reflect the politicization of the disease. There are too many people who have a stake in it working one way or another, and it's it's a tragedy. I think that the Centers for Disease Control and prevention which went into this pandemic as perhaps the most highly regarded public health body in the world has suffered from errors and poor leadership and denigration from the White House. That's that's just done nothing tool for the overrule effort. Are you hopeful are you more hopeful about the the post vaccine era and the experience today has made us all. Yes I think people, and I think people learn and learn more slowly than than baps they ought to but they do learn and you know I say the scientific response to this disease has been incredible and and that's something to feel cheerful about is just the even the best scientific response will take longer than people might like I did that time many people will suffer?

COVID-19: What did Sweden do differently?
"Sweden has been the country that a lot of people have loved to hate during the pandemic. It's no lock down strategy was seen as naive and cruel by some. But the World Health Organization has praised Sweden's results. A few weeks ago, Sweden did massive testing and found a record low infection rate. But now rates are creeping up, and Stockholm is considering further measures to contain the virus. Dr. Johan Jessica is a Swedish physician and professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. I asked him if he was concerned about the rise in Corona virus cases. I don't think we should look at it at all. It may be a statistical circuit race, and it's going up and down. It was up a couple of months ago and then down again, So I think we should wait to make any judgment on that. But I mean, you are seeing an increase now. Yeah, there is an increase on people are concerned about Yes. So if cases continue to rise in Sweden at what point would you advise Sweden to strengthen its measures? Like what kind of increase would you need to see before pushing for that? I couldn't say, but it's not the time yet anyway, you know that Sweden has come in for some really tough criticism for its no lock down policy. It's something that Swedish officials and professionals have been saying the rest of the world just doesn't understand. Help us understand the situation in Sweden. Well, we've had a look down. I call it a soft look down and build some voluntary participation by the people. But if you tell people how this disease transmits, and what's the things you should avoid. People will listen to you. People are so stupid. You talked about a soft lock down. Explain what that actually is. It is. For example, As soon as you feel the slightest cold, you trance state and I will not go to work. Work at home. As much as you can avoid crowded places. There are a few legal restrictions a crowd conflict begin their 50 people, for example, on bus drivers are allowed to deny entrance in their buses. If there are too many people in there, so there are a few but mostly bills on military participation. When it comes to the practical advice for the Swedish population. Is the government urging people to maintain social distancing wear masks, masks, not wear masks. Is that not been one of the things that the government's pushing for? Because there's no science to prove that they work. And yet we hear from experts all over the world that there are plenty of reasons and scientific ones to wear masks. But that's the way I've seen here. Sweden has reported nearly 5900 deaths since the start of the pandemic. That's more per capita than both Denmark and Norway. So at this point of pandemic, what do you think explains the difference. I think we'd have a much bigger seeding of cases in Ah, late February and early March. Then our neighbor countries that we started at a much higher number of infected people than they did. Dr. Jessica You played a key role in coming up with Sweden's response of the current virus. What do you know? Now that you didn't know six months ago about the best way to contain this virus? It spreads more in clusters and influence a dozen ransom moves like a wave over the population. But this is his jumps from a group of people to a new group of people. And that wasn't clear six months ago, and that makes, for example, contact race and becomes much more important with a cluster disease like overhead. And how has it reoriented your approach to containing the Corona virus in in Sweden? Contact tracing is now very important, rigorously in all parts of the country, falling off context, testing them. So that had become more important now than it would have been your influence season. So if you believe it sounds like you do firmly that the Swedish approach is largely working, how come other countries have not adopted it, especially other Nordic countries? The problem was much smaller in their country when it all started on DH. There are political reasons will, but I won't go into that. That's one thing. I would say that it's far too early to compare countries to countries Now we have the beginning of this. This would be going on for a long time. And I think we should wait at least a year before we draw any conclusions or what Which strategy worked on which did not looking back right now, in September of 2020 is there anything that Sweden should have done differently at the start of the pandemic? We should have been better at protecting the old and afraid that was the mainstay of the strategy. But it didn't really work actually, for a number of reasons, and why not? We weren't really prepared, I would say. But wasn't that kind of like one of the first headlines about the Corona virus that it's you know people with co morbidity, ease and and the elderly who will be most affected? Yes, but it takes some time to get a ll the equipment on the training And you don't know that from one day to the next, So we were late. I think they're what about Swedes? What's been kind of the Swedish attitude about this approach to containing the Corona virus. Has anybody protested? Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I have been quite a number of people who say that this is wrong. But this is a democracy. People loved their own use. But maybe listen countries and we have no time the U. S reaction that this is against the Constitution. That reaction hasn't been here at all.
A Conversation With 2020 U.S. Open Champion Dominic Thiem
"Everyone John Worth I'm here is this week sports illustrated tennis podcast were all catching our breath after the twenty twenty us open no one more. So than our first guest, why you ask it's dominant team, your men's winner he stopped by for what I thought was really quite an extraordinary conversation especially given the circumstances after that we speak with Dr Seon Bilac she's the president of Barnard here New York. She's also a cognitive scientists in a world expert on choking. So given the events of the week, we wanted to get her take. So it is a double, but I are champ from singles. Here's Dominic team. I didn't have time yet to reflect on on this incredible match on the on the win. The Dhamma. Grizzard champion off it's it's unreal to me still and also yesterday. We rent. Straits to the hotel after all the breast. Had some dinner together and then I didn't sleep on seconds so. Was not able to reflect but I guess that's coming the next day's. Going to say I, guess you pulled an all nighter as we say, how do you celebrate a major during lockdown? This is a new one. How do you celebrate when you can't exactly I would have been happening the? Honestly. We had pizza with my team Del Room, and then we were just jailing talking about. Reviews for weeks about the tournament and I think that I, wouldn't have done differently when. Everything was normal because I was shattered dean was as well, and the is coming in the our with a big hole. They wait till you get home. What affect. Do you think it had on? You not having fans there Stop for everybody I guess because fans of full stadium if she'll so much energy positive fantasy. You can rely on them. You can. You can rely on them, they will carry you. Through tough situations, carry us. Through when you feel leads and all these falls away. Of course, the teams April the Eugen for, but it's only three people so. Is was really tough to all the TIME INDIANA CI yourself. push yourself all the time. It's a unique situation and over even thought for the stadium full. In the moment, are you aware of of just how crazy crazy match the Zeus of are you aware of all these wild swings? I am yeah. Usually. I. I really remember. Most of the details in in every mansions. I four said sorted were kind of strange but then if said. I never experienced something before it was so weird such a big drama you will were ending up in the daybreak. With all the years we know shallow with the fringe share the Chinese broad a super long. Two Grand Slam finals, and then we badly all if said daybreak, it's just so crazy and. I guess to lock your. Normal to pressure before big matches. Did you know how intense the pressure was before you got out there? Did you know before you hit the first ball who you were really nervous? Noam usually are most times i. I find. The perfect mix between two nervous and the northern Norway, which is this area yesterday I just didn't find it I feeling really good at the warm up by. was hitting the ball very clean, very goods. Didn't have any pain was fooling fit and then I go out and suddenly I feel. So nervous arms are heavy lakes or heavy, I cannot really blame I. Real Dennis and the dental tough, and then all of this auden. Even I think was only off among soon to sits down. What are you telling yourself after that? I was telling myself. I was hoping that I free up at one point in then I was getting myself well is a major final. Fight for every point doesn't been get way worse than debts and. just hoping that also your opponent gives you something because he was playing very, very limited getting serving. Amazing playing solid from the bank and. then. Maybe he gave me a little bit. Maybe one full or some easy mistakes on the base on broken bank in his third and. Will moment where three. When it became. A good match.

The Future Of IVF with Dr. Zaher Merhi
"So My name is Dr Marie? Reproductive endocrinology further specialist. My is in Manhattan on Columbus Circle. The practice is called new hope for not center I. Am a father of two boys. Ryan is fifteen years old going through puberty and Adam is eleven years old and I love my boys and my dot com will be he's my favorite history years old any sleeps with me every night I literally feel like we're just gonNA continue a sentence from from before. So we were talking about all your. Treatments in all the different things that you can experience while you're having your IV thing that sounds like somewhat not want to call it a SPA treatment but there it just sounds. Nice. Amazing this it is treated. You know it's funny to warding job honestly, and I really love my job and a lot of time I get attached to my patients because you're helping them have a baby and you know I get Christmas cards every year and saying, Oh thank you give me a baby. What kind of you know it's it's really happiness I cannot explain and actually they send pictures of the kids and the children and I put them on the wall and my house. So I have a wall full of pictures of the baby, the baby's. Saying So let's go back because I. think part of this conversation was really like I the F. One. Oh one if you've ever been curious if you've ever thought about it if you've ever been, you know sort of confused about what it entailed. We really covered all the details. So those of you listening who are still curious about that providence to go listen to part one of this conversation part two is going to be more of like you. I mean, you're just so knowledge what everything. More of the cutting edge stuff because I think that that's really what your outfit specializes in and is so prized for is that you really are on this cutting edge of what does it mean to be able to bring Tila to a challenging situations and to do it in a really as noninvasive way as possible, which is actually fascinating Lee sometimes with better results. So I guess we got cut off at noninvasive chromosomal screening is that right? Am I like looking at this? Okay. Then noninvasive chromosomes screening our next is the following. Let's say Daphne has three boys and now she wants to have a car. And now she comes to my office and tell me Dr Marie I WanNa have a boy now are we gonNa do is we're going to do something called IVF. We suck the ads at your husband's sperm, and then we make embryos right sperm and egg may can embryo it takes down a week to make an embryo Now, a days in the last few years more and more centers are testing the embryos not just for the gender also chromosomal screening. You don't want to worry about having a down syndrome baby and then I'm Houston later on or have a miscarriage and then was centers. Do they take a piece of your embryo and then freeze the embryo and test this piece for the chromosome because it's coming from the embryo? We don't do that with the Knicks are noninvasive chromosome screening. We take the fluid at your embryo where it's growing. Just. A fluid water and with that fluid for the end without taking off your angrier. We're only has this technology and I can tell you a lot of people come to us because they were like you know I don't know if the biopsy off Ambrose rain debut and I don't want south sticking out of my my future baby you know they can out to be tested. So that's that's the knicks or none of his of chromosomes I can tell you I love it because it doesn't put on your embryo if you see how an embassy biopsies down the stretch like this and the Pum, a piece of snaps out. It's a little bit aggressive. So the next I think presents a lot of things and then you can also for tomorrow and you can have your boy if you want just journalists election. Yeah. Fascinating because the the a when it's growing remember we put it in a culture dish and over the week after we had the sperm and egg over the growth of. The DNA is thrown in that fluid. So that's how we do it. So that's I think is cutting edge technology reverted proud to have it at new hope fertility center. Why is it only you guys that have this technology you know other centers have done it for research and stuff, but I did not get a good result when we started this technology. I can tell you my secret sauce by the way to have fun. Waiting. But before we offered the to patients, you have to test it. Right. You have to do on the same embryo both technologies the old one and the fluid L. We got ninety nine point nine percent correlation other places they got sixty, eighty percent Max, and so it's the the lab hasn't really got the as good results if I wanNA, say that's Why it's not. So we have great technology. We have great lab, and that's why we have a thousand nine point nine percent correlation between both understood and has a nice. So we talked before about the Needle Free Ivf, we're you take pills instead of injections, correct pills and patches and everything. Correct. There's no patches. This fills by mouth by GINA NASAL spray. Spray interesting correct. Is it just as effective show? We have to be very careful because if someone is young and they have a lot of eggs, it's not it's less effective. Why because? The shots are more aggressive food for the eggs and younger patients have lot of eggs to feed. So they need more food. So the pills is not enough they need addition to shots but women thirty five years, and above it's as effective as the old conventional where patients plenty of shots That's so interesting and I told you I have a patient and Amazon me she wants to talk about experience about the. Home Ivf because she get, we sent to the house no shots just spilt and nasal spray and that we got a lot of eggs as she made four embryos and that's that's a lot I mean it's this is favor good. So yeah it's effective and then how long can you freeze embryos for twenty five years? So it's good and bad guy, and this is great question. Let me tell you why it's good and. It's bad. It's good because nowadays, some countries by some doctors are struggling with Beijing let's say you come to me ten years ago you've eggs and you at forty now you come to me after ten years. Now you're fifty years old and you. WanNa get pregnant with my own exodus froze ten years ago. Some doctors have issues with that because now they think well, what if something happens to you now you have diabetes and you know so we're GonNa be stuck in situations where actually have a patient I was doing a patient from Norway she froze her ex in Copenhagen ten fifteen years ago. Now she's fifty one and they said we cannot use your eggs because getting you're pregnant at this age is dangerous. But, that exactly so I mean I love the fact that twenty five years but also. Having Siblings Twenty five years apart. This we it. Let's say you do IV after they get pregnant and twenty five years. Oh, my my my brother is. So. There's a lot of things but last last part which is. The great thing about freezing for twenty five years is that there is a lot of abandoned embryos what am I gonNa do with them right. I mean some clinics in this country has adult fourteen percent of the embryos abandoned coupled who left Leftover Embryos And are gone and they're not being the freezing fees because they finish this they finished family. So that's why when you go back to the conventional idea when you tell me, I get tons of eggs but guess what kinds of embryos to that you're GonNa be stuck with for live. So I won't vicious the thing that, yes home ivf or gentle IVF or neither free IVF. It's good effective at your to be stuck situation where you're going to be freezing fees for twenty five years for embryos that you might not need. Right. A lot of my consultations are bishops will finish their family and they just WanNa talk to me about what to do that embryo and I don't know what to say, what are the different options, throw it out, give it to another couple or give it twenty such but
Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic
"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

"Kinda Guy. Well here's the thing I would like to do this when I'm traveling anyway. I kind of like to make modular itinerary. So I'll think about like specific kind of types of days. I want to have but then I can slot them in and out depending on my mood and different reasons and I think one of the biggest reasons why that's a good tactic to use in. Oslo is because of the weather here. So it's not every day that you get son and if you show up here and it's a sunny day it's warm. Don't assume that it's going to be like that the whole week. You're here. I was here when I first came in July and I think there was three weeks of rain straight and I'm like really is the summer this is. This is insane. I haven't seen the sun in like a month so I like to build people's itinerary and people ask me what to first thing I say is just around the weather. Like have the things that you WanNa do but then let the weather be the guide for the things you actually end up doing. Got On that day. So you're not going to suggest a first day. You're going to suggest a museum day in a outdoor day and the order depends on what the weather is. I'm there exactly. I mean we could look at it like indoor outdoor sunny versus rainy type. Things I mean Norwegians. Have a famous saying it's all SEIC Norwegian it's do Finis Eka Kadoorie Vodka about a doorly. And that's just means there's no such thing as bad weather only clothing so like they go out and every type of weather and that's true. I mean my kids sleep in their sleeping bag at at the daycare outside in the stroller when their youngsters. And there's never like a training too hard. We're not going outside today situation.

"Of fifty seats per screen. Ringin Kino in Oslo sold ninety six percent of its available tickets that led to it getting about half the average admissions. It gets because it usually doesn't fill up all the theater's so when it's allowed to sell all of its seats it sells about double that the top grossing title was onward followed by Bloodshot the gentleman parasite and local titles cloven three the final and Fluke Denver Brenston evening screenings in the early part of this week. Have been about seventy percent. And that's usually when you get. Nobody come into the theater and screenings for parasite this coming week are sold out now. What they're doing is staggering. The showtimes to try to keep people from crowding into the lobby. Concessions are still sold by people. But they're kept under control so popcorn is refilled and stored separately. They don't have out in a big open thing. They give you a Coffee Cup to get your coffee rather than leaving the coffee cups by the machine. But they're still a machine out there that's interesting. Cinemas are expecting some small releases coming in June and Norway's theaters counting on big releases in July to fill the gap. They planned to run some classic movies. In fact the owner of Ring Keno Keno told deadline. We're quite sure that some big children's movies will surprises by releasing early in July. They're more worried about having too many films when the glut happens at the end of twenty twenty. I'm beginning of twenty twenty one so Chris. I don't know about you but this is not what I would have expected. I would not have expected Sellouts even of a limited amounts and. I certainly wouldn't expect theaters to be hinting that we will earlier releases than we thought. I. Yeah I think there's a couple things going on here and it might be. You know being misinterpreted a little bit by the data. I think one of the things that's going on as people just WANNA get out and no matter what it is. Even if it's a movie theater bully it doesn't matter they WANNA go out so there's part of that but also it's a it's a desire to get back to normalcy and it's also of course it's a love for cinema too but what there's a lot of moving parts here like even if you're staggering seats like do people after specially in this country people going to have to wear masks. How do you keep people from congregating in the lobbies? Like you could stagger showtimes. But you know we have arclights. Twelve fourteen theaters. That's impossible you can't do that for for us The other side of the equation is movie theaters. Were in trouble to begin with before the pandemic because of the way Lower attendance and the way studios or releasing their movies. Now I mean you guys talked about the row with Amc and universal. And if you look back at that how ridiculous univer. Amc's response was thinking that universal was the only studio thinking about changing how they release movies. No it's all of them are thinking about it so I think what you're going to see is you know and I've I've been in love with the cinema since I was a tiny little child so I'd hate to see movie theaters. Go Away or even You know get diminished in any way. But I think there's there's going to be kind of a after an initial push and initial like everyone wants to go back out and see movies again. I think it's going to level off. I think you are going to see the same thing here like when they do reopen that people are going to want to go out but with the restrictions and the lower capacity. It's going to sound a little bit more like success than it really is. Because you also have the distribution models of the theaters and the movie studios. The split isn't really conducive to what the studio wants and with concessions and capacity is really what the movie theaters need. So you're Kinda of have like a bit of an impasse. Between attendance cost licensing fees and the way movies are being released so. I think all of things needed to be figure out before we could kind of see like a kind of a return to any kind of equilibrium with the the movie theaters. Yeah that's my rant. I I do think that part of this is going to be nostalgia people you know. There was a a supreme court situation in Wisconsin that temporarily or likely directly struck down there. Stay at home order and people were in bars because people want bars because they remember the time that they were there. Forget your personal feelings on whether or not they should be. The desire is what matters in this particular case? I think we are going to see probably larger and more vociferous movie attendants in this country when we are allowed to do it and in the in the short capacities but whether that is enough to save the theatre industry I think remains to be seen. Also I mean there's a big thing on that article that you just said like well we're getting a bunch of kids movies now. That's another thing. Our parents going to be taking all their kids. It seems the least you the theaters. Yeah and especially if they have to wear masks which they're not gonNA WANNA do and and their safety issue but also you've got all these options for streaming now and you know we mentioned onward at did really well. We'll onward came to Disney plus here so all our kids saw it on the streaming service. Anyway so you've got And these are always big huge summer moneymakers is the animated and the family. Pg Thirteen PG's and kids movies so They're going to be a big part of the equation. Moving forward yeah. I think this is interesting because of the numbers but it's also one theater in Oslo and they're going to start offering more of their theaters next week. It'll be very interesting to see when that compressed demand we're like this is the only theatre all of Oslo can go to right. That's that's a whole different situation than okay. Now you got three or four and at that point when do when do you hit when you run out of the people who are like yeah? I'm not worried I just want to get out. Want to go somewhere and you start going into the people that you're GonNa have to convince like say like hey man I can watch. Hbo With My friends over the Internet at home right now HBO.

I know it's definitely even if it's on some wouldn't be on right. Wouldn't beyond that you have to like put it on yourself matt flakes or like video. You would never ever dare never did that. So when would you. When does it feel right to be December? It has to beat Zambia. Yeah okay interesting because again. We took the decorations out in November. And I love how by the way like you said the Norwegian Christmas. I miss you can hear this and the other spectaculars go deep on this topic. But you guys don't really start doing Christmas things too little little Christmas Eve. Which is the twenty third? Oh you do Christmas things but you like. I grew up with like nop decorating the three before. Like what we call me the day before Christmas Eve so but that's like little Christmas things happened but it's mostly in December right so I like how. I'm slowly working backwards pretty soon. We're cracking the Hewlett Bruce in October. We're doing the decorations November. No we might be watching love actually in July. Who knows no no no no? Let's not get carried away Jason and also. I have to say that we didn't put up with three like we didn't put up the Christmas tree or decorate the tree before it was December over. We did the rest of decoration but not the Christmas tree you sure about that. I didn't look the date on that same because guess what our next segment is us going to get the tree. We recorded a little bit when we went to get the tree because this is another big lead up event to Christmas. Is that when we're talking about one. Is it too early. But when you're getting the tree when you're doing these things these traditions he's rituals. I don't know what it is but the the Christmas spirit in the Kenyan Dali album. That was our favorite favorite out and that we heard like the Christmas spirit starts to take over the house. Take over your body take over your mind on your spirit and getting the tree is a big one for me for. That's like you get the tree bringing in house. Then it's it's on like donkey Kong right and before we play that. I should mention a a couple of movies that I love. I love Christmas story. Of course it's classic and Bad Santa Greats rate it's the rate at our one and elps another great one too so I just wanted to share those all right. That was our little movie discussion. Now I'M GONNA call the segment taking it to the next level with holiday. Prep because that's what you you do when you get the Christmas tree so hears us getting the Christmas tree having will discussion you might hear my daughter talking about meat balls at one point and this ties in with our trees name which is a pretty funny things when we come back. We'll tell you the name of the tree and sure the more of the Norwegian Christmas take a listen to us getting the tree.

"So our white paper is called what causes the child penalty, and it's from statistics Norway, and it's a paper that talks about same sex couples living in Norway and potential policy reforms as relates to closing the wage gap that frequently occurs after women give birth to children and the paper found that while women in heterosexual couples experience a drop of income of approximately twenty two percent following the birther first child in this drop stays the same over time. Their male partners don't experience a child penalty. And this has been something a lot of academics have been looking at. But they noted that in with same sex couples specifically lesbian couples that while. There is a child penalty of some kind. There's a thirteen percent drop in the income of the person who gives birth and the their partner experiences an income drop of five percent, but with less. Couples the mother who gives birth catches up with her partner around two years after and from that after about four years after birther is no longer a child penalty and with Sam sex male couples. There is no income penalty of any kind. And so that makes sense, obviously, the the populations were dealing with. There aren't that many same sex couples with children, let alone same sex male couples with children. So I think that there's an important a layer of context in talking about who are these couples and how childbearing works for queer couples. But it is interesting and talking about how specific policy changes that took place in Norway have impacted the child penalty, including paternity leave maternity leave and just how those changes have impacted specifically same sex couples. Wait, I mean, you know, I think the the background finding here, right? Is that we often look at? Wage gap issues in the United States, and sophisticated vox readers weeds, listeners know, that wage gap is almost entirely counter for by children. And then the the further sophisticated thing to know is that other developed countries have an identical sort of wage gap. And so whatever the policy realm is right. That would alleviate that it is like outside the scope of the differences between the United States Norway, Sweden wherever it is. You wanna go, and what's interesting is that? So now, the Norwegians have found like a change that does change this right, which is not an expansive welfare state, right? Because we've seen from the international. It's not that. There's that. If you place the father with a non birth-giving second mother that gets the job done. It's true. I mean, I think this out the sounds for a straightforward to me. Although in fairness, they are seeing in this paper a certain amount of reduction in the child penalty free. From early subsidized care. So it's not exactly like I mean. But it's just still big, right? Like in Norway, which is very generously provisioned country. Right. I mean, you're you are really seeing here that gender identities and gender roles and norms are driving a large change in behavior with big labor market impacts. Right. But I think there's also, and I think the paper does get into this a little bit that there is some additional context with relation to who these couples are it noticed that in general, partnered gay men on average earn less than partnered heterosexual women, but partner lesbian, women earn more than heterosexual women. And I think that that also plays into you know, if you are a partnered lesbian couple or a partnered gay couple how having children works is a lot more of a. Deliberative process. And so I think that that adds into some element of context because I'm trying to think of how best the put this in general lesbian, couples do not traditionally have children accidentally. And so I think there is an element to which that by the time lesbian, couples are prepared to have children and are starting to that make that process happen..
