Florida grocery store captures country’s divide over wearing masks

"Tonight video that looks like it was taken pre pandemic. The oaks farm to table market in naples florida captures the country's divide with many customers and employees visibly not wearing masks despite experts clear messaging that wearing masks can slow the spread of covid nineteen. The cdc makes recommendations based on data that they accumulate. Because it's a science based organization when we first asked about the stores mask policy. We were directed to sign stating the mask exemption guidelines. Those in our lovely government have ordered all persons entering indoor facilities to wear a mask if you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask. You are exempt. We cannot legally ask you about your medical condition therefore if we see you without a mask we will assume you have a medical condition alfie. Oaks is the store's owner known for his conservative and often controversial viewpoints position than about medical exemptions or is it about the fact that you don't think masks work and that the virus is not a real i don't work and i know that the virus has not has not killed four hundred thousand people in this country. That's that's total hogwash. Folks who organized getting a bus of people to washington dc on january six to support former president trump believes many of the deaths being attributed to covid to other causes. I'm not gonna do it. I've never worn a mask in my life. And i never will yesterday. More than three thousand people died from the coronavirus in the united states oakes's store stark contrast to the hundreds of public stores in florida equipped with plexiglass checkout counters.

I think it's still one of those things that outside of hiv advocacy are A lot of people are still not always as knowledgeable about the science around hiv crap. You equals you nothing sometimes especially when you're in a progressive bubbles you kind of forget some times that the general population.

This information has misunderstood Conservative cousin wayne misunders. Choose the drag queen that storm the capital on january six thousand bars prison one of the challenges that we've been facing with the covert pandemic is not only distributing and getting people on the vaccine which is a whole nother issue. Once the vaccine does become available. There's so much misinformation so much confusion and a lot of communities especially black and latino historically have been very skeptical or reluctant to embrace new medicines procedures technology because of their history of betrayal and racism in the medical industry. And so i thought it was really interesting to actually take a look at how prep address these issues early on and is continuing to address these issues and see those might dove. Taylor translate to hauer dressing this other pandemic right and you know. I'm definitely i think because i talked so much about prep and just eds up. I gotta see in biology. So i'm not the person who go to for medical information definitely but one of the things i just kinda learned about. Prep is a not to take away from years. And years of work that other advocates have done but behavior change by wearing a condom one hundred percent of the time i don't think that's an effective way of addressing epidemic onto the point. That begin ended so in the same thing with the vaccine. I mean we can mask. We can social distance. We can associate our friends and family by zoom but long-term. That's just not sustainable. You know so. There are things i don't necessarily know about the vaccine but i do know that the vaccine will kinda give us some level of normalcy back where we can see our families our friends and not have to stand six feet away from each other so i of look at it not so much from a medical standpoint but more from a social standpoint on why was really important because the it's really our only way out of this. Oh well that's the thing about like you know with prep adoption. We started noticing is a lot of the eight organizations like aids foundation of chicago Spend a lot of money and effort in reaching out to communities of color Early on with prep to to normalize and reduce the stigma of taking this medication because a lot of people were actually thinking there was misinformation. I remember early on that you could get hiv from the medicine. I'm pro. which is like so ludicrous. And there's like all this like misinformation this this idea that like well if you're on prep. It's not going to protect you from kovic orkla media and there's kind of similar conversations happening with covid vaccine. They're like well. You still could die from things. And i'm like obviously i didn't know that was ever off the table and so i'm wondering michael in your role now in this leadership position like what kind of ideas or things can you do to address the fear and mistrust and betrayal that communities of color have have experienced with dealing with medical advancements and technologies and pandemics. And like how do you reach out to these communities and say you know what this time you can trust us or or do you have to approach it differently. I'm wondering definitely stay in my with my strong suit. Stay in my lane. I'm not a medical person. So i can't really explain the medical side of why we should trust this. Do of know in everyday terms. We you kobe. Nineteen is very new even if you survive it you know. I think the argument with the vaccine as what we don't know the long term effects we don't know what it's going to be five or ten years from now we'll covert nineteen just popped up november. Play nine t. We don't know what is going to have an impact on us in ten years fifteen years twenty years from now so But we do know. The sorts are in effect are pretty safe for the vaccine as far as we can see now and we know the short term affects. Colbert are not so. That's kind of how. I way if there are long term effects of the vaccine cross that bridge when he gets here right now we have a us airborne virus that has killed over four hundred thousand people. Just us alone you know. It's kind of ironic right. There was so much energy and effort addressing hiv and aids pandemic and you know For relatively short time we had this really powerful effective tool and now all of a sudden last year we got another pandemic and that really seemed it. Feels like it's kinda shutdown all people's sexual activity to some degree as it clear. So you're talking about when prep cap when prep came along. Yes so it's like. We had the eighties nineties. Yeah those of show we've lived. Our generation grew up with hiv. And a right and so for a relatively short time we sort of had this window and of sexual liberation with prep Where we years baby. It's relatively short window. And then all of a sudden last year this this window got closed because of the covid pandak and and to me. It's it's kind of a interesting conversation to have a lot of people that listen to the show are gay.

Jesus fucking christ And i read about it. And i read the quotes from the the remembrance ceremony both from joe biden and from kamala harris who am. I cannot stress this enough to politicians. I don't particularly care for for for some pretty significant reasons. I've softened on kamala harris. After i read some stuff but like a reading their sentiments about it and the things that they said in their definitely pre written speeches. I got really emotional. Because i forgot how it felt to interface with any politician who is willing to even give a lip service to our plate whatsoever right. The bar is so low. now begin so low. But it was just platitudes. And they just like lit. Four hundred lanterns. Or whatever. But i've been doing nothing. I have had a tube shoved down my throat for the last four years and that tube has just been filled with hate for four years so for someone even to feign. Compassion brought me to tears. Reading cnn article. It's great because we know they're not gonna deviate an ad-lib or insult people in front of the entire nation or use. Words like big leaguer huge. We're gonna actually get some solid presidential communication and that's how low the bar is. The bar is so low. Because i'm just happy for anything.

We have had four years of someone who has not acknowledged an emotion other than anger disappointment or sexual arousal for four years. I'm just happy that we're going to get an end to the the headlines on national news national news organizations that reed president trump is angry over. Biden's a list inauguration.

The huge coronavirus challenge facing America's new President

"I'm health reported. Teigen tayla journalist alter norman swan. It's thursday the twenty first of january. That's right and early this morning at least australian time joe biden has been sworn into office the new president and before he took office he was really clear that he wanted to be very tough on coronavirus but the scale of the pandemic in that states is just massive. Yesterday they passed a mall. Start four hundred thousand deaths. The pace of the spread really isn't slowing down. Is it actually possible to for joe biden to get the pandemic under control and if so what is it going to take well as going to take a lot and we just should not in passing. Yesterday's really moving ceremony at the mall commemorating the deaths or honoring the deaths of of the more than four hundred thousand people who've died of covid nineteen now and you'd have to say that's a number that's been largely preventable To a very significant stint of america had got its act together early on and just a very brief run through of the disaster that unfolded in the united states where they knew it was coming. Were in contact with the chinese. It didn't have a test that worked. The cdc was insisting that people use their tests. The food and drug administration was being very slow in approving new tests. People in washington state public health officials in washington state. Were tearing their hair out because they knew it was spreading in washington state and they had no national coordination of testing over testing infrastructure and just spread and spread and spread under the radar. People didn't know how much there was around and there were unreasonable restrictions on who could be tested so all on top of fragmented system with no leadership president trump constantly trying to minimize the problem and avoid it and undermined the people who were advising him and they jettisoned at the beginning of the trump administration. The jettison the obama pandemic plan win the game plan to pandemic in two thousand and nineteen year or so before the pandemic they found that it was wanting they didn't they. Were not ready for it. And the national stock pow was depleted. You can't imagine a bigger cluster of problems than they had in the united states. So what can biden do so. The first thing he's intending do is amp up vaccination rates considerably by creating you infrastructure for vaccination around the country remember. There's no infrastructure of general practice of coordinated healthcare systems in the united states. So you've got to set something up in parallel. So he's devoted a lot of money to that because apparently of the thirty million doses that have been distributed in the united states. Only a fraction have actually been administered extrordinary situation again with very restricted rules about who can be immunized not an does it does reports of doses going to waste so even dozes. They're supposed to being given have not been given an actually have been thrown in the bucket. The other thing that he's going to do is create a national testing infrastructure. Sin factory coordinator testing nationwide. Don't believe it or not having have have at the moment and then there's mass mandatory mask wearing in federal property which is really the only power i think that the president has and to encourage mask-wearing around the country. But reality is that only a severe and very long lockdown we'll get this under control while the pandemic spreads and it will spread for a long time while they are immunizing. It's going to be a long time before this is coming. This comes under control. So essentially the biden administration is doing nothing. Fancy is doing stuff that's just basic controlling pandemic starting on the back foot really like in some ways the trump administration they were the ones that have allowed the vaccine to get up in such a short amount of time but so many of the other parts of the public health response there have have put them in a disadvantage. Now yes you can see that and we confronting this as well in australia. It's not just enough to have the technology the vaccine you've got to have the means of distributing it

Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus

"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday

South Dakota emerges as new U.S. coronavirus hot spot

"Just before the fourth of July this summer the Republican governor of South Dakota Christie gnome one on Fox News to announce of excitedly that president trump's big July fourth campaign event at Mount. Rushmore would not require attendees to wear masks Hooray and definitely there would be no social distancing she said yeah and sure enough a big mostly mask lists crowd packed in for president trump's rally. Then South Dakota refused to have mask requirement or any kind of changing plans actually for the annual sturgis motorcycle rally last month, which attracted upwards of four hundred, thousand people. The sturgis motorcycle rally has now been linked to hundreds of new coronavirus cases, and at least one death cases in south. Dakota doubled in the two weeks after that event, there's actually a study out today that projects that the Sturgis rally alone may have led to an almost staunching number of new covid infections. South Dakota Governor Christie gnome has defended the sort of covid denial list approach of the state under her leadership saying that South Dakota will not listen to quote in elite class of so-called experts. Under her leadership, the state also ahead this past weekend with its state. Fair. No Corona virus walls for that gathering either. Now, as a few days ago, South Dakota has the highest number of corona virus cases per capita in the whole country. South Dakota's leaders refused to take measures to stop to stop the spread of it. They rejected the warnings of those pointy headed so-called experts. And now, here we are.

Coronavirus contact tracing: App could warn you of COVID-19

"Now we head to Iceland where a country of fewer than four hundred thousand people suffered its last covert nineteen related death back in April one of the tools being used to help keep the virus at bay is a contact tracing phone app something American tech companies are racing to develop for use in this country it's administered by a team of individuals who call and inform people that they may have been exposed to someone with the virus we're joined now by I've upon this in the head of the contact tracing team in Reykjavik welcome to the program thank you so can you tell us about this app how does it work this apparatus is mostly helping us and helping the infected person to trust in their memory appalled where they've been and when they've been around so as an example the person who's got infected remember that she went from place a to be on the same day she got the symptoms but the two countrymen predict what day that boss so with the data that we can refresh in her memory okay we can see here on the map that you went between these parts of the city on that day yes that's correct that was the day I caught my first symptoms so what do you say when you actually end up getting in contact with people when you're doing this contact tracing so we wait for results from the laboratory us and as soon we get information but a positive test medical staff from the team calls the infected person and if they view him or her and the person is asked like when did you first have your symptoms and what have you been with the been in close contact with after the interview with the infected person we begin to reach out to the contacts and tell them that they have been in contact with someone who has got defective code nineteen and for his or her own safety and the safety of others they need to go into quarantine I take it the government has been extremely clear the personal data collected from a user's phone movements and whereabouts and such would be deleted after a few weeks and people have trusted that do you think that would work here in America people in Iceland trusted organizations into the politicians decided in the government decided to stay in the back and put all the trust and listen to scientists my sense is a small nation and it doesn't take long time to raise awareness with the whole nation and to the people trust the organizational consumer protection and the chief epidemiologist in the directorate of health who have been controlling this I slid his had the remarkable success of holding the line on the virus even without canceling schools and allowing some restaurants to stay open with some very serious restrictions about social distancing what do you think the main thing though has been and help flattening the curve in terms of cases do you think contact tracing has been one of the key elements yes contact tracing and early and aggressive testing these two plays a big role just tell me what it looks like right now nice Linda I mean are people going out cool intermingling are they wearing masks you haven't had a case in quite some time there are very few people wearing masks and to it's a beautiful day right now people are going out but they keep these social distancing and also we have known lifted the gathering by a little bit so now more than twenty people can come together I think it's fifty right now and the that are a plan to lift them even more and to that are also planned to open the borders for tourists in June fifteen here in the U. S. many app developers and big tech companies are also exploring contact tracing apps what advice would you give them I would give them good advice at least to look at in our direction and to adopt the same methods we've been using because this personal relations that you dealt with the infected person and the contacts I mean it's a great tool to help you in the context racing team put an app on its own is not

Here’s What Warren Buffett Says About The Coronavirus And His Outlook On Stocks

"May kicked off with one of the biggest events of the investment calendar the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. Hey hurrah but instead of forty thousand people flocking to Omaha. Warren Buffett sat at a table in a near Empty Auditorium. Under did either of you watch it at all. It was kind of the surreal experience. Now I saw two seconds of it. I haven't gotten around to it but it is always. It still blows my mind. That forty thousand people go to Omaha just to maybe get a chance to see Warren Buffett. That's crazy and it's crazy that he can sit up there for that long and answer question after question after question now usually also joined by Charlie. Munger this year he was not instead he was joined by Greg able able. Who is the vice chairman in charge of all operate operate instead of Insurance? But it still went on for more than four hours. Wow I more than an hour was a presentation that he gave so I listened to the entire meeting. Impasse episodes I would. I've said that sort of my personal investing philosophy is be a short-term pessimist at a long-term optimist and that sorta seems to me was the message of the whole meeting so on the pessimistic side. They're clearly not doing anything you know. They've still kept most of their one hundred thirty billion in cash. He did not use the downturn as an opportunity to go on a buying spree. He essentially he likened previous downturns to train. That is slowing down. This time. He said we took the economic train off the tracks. And I don't know of any historical parallel in the range of possibilities on the economic side are still extraordinarily wide in other words. They're still sitting pat on what they're going to do. He also said quote. We have not done anything because we don't see anything that attractive to do. Heels actually spent a good deal of time talking about some of the past challenges and failings America's history so for example. He pointed out that. Despite the fact that we have a declaration of independence that claims that all men are created equal. When you look at the three point nine million people living in the original thirteen states and seven thousand nine hundred fifteen percent were slaves pointed out that during the civil war six percent of the male population between the ages of eighteen and sixty died. The twenty twenty equivalent of that would be four million deaths according to Warren Buffett and then it took one hundred thirty one years for women to have the right to vote at another sixty one years until a woman was appointed to the Supreme Court so we often talks about the long term success of America. He did spend a good bit of time talking about some of the things that we have not done so well. He spent a particular amount of time on going over the Great Depression I think partially because he was born in the middle of the Great Depression so he pointed out. It's September nine hundred twenty nine. The Dow was at three eighty one. Five hundred didn't exist back then so he just using the Dow and then in a little more than two months it was down forty nine percent to one ninety eight. You Move Ahead to August twenty ninth nineteen thirty. Which is the day before he was born. It was backed up to two forty so and it rebounded twenty percent. People have found that like okay. Stocks went down but there. They've gone back up back then. People were thinking that they were on the verge of the Great Depression. You go ahead less than two years to July thirty two. The Dow is down to forty one so from the peak went from three eighty one to forty one a decline of eighty nine percent and the Dow did not get back to its nineteen twenty nine peak until nineteen fifty four. Wow he did point out that people got dividends at back then. Dividends were higher but still price percentage the market was down for more than twenty years so buffet called the Great Depression a testing period. That caused some people that lose faith in America. I don't know if he was playing out to say like times ahead could be tougher than we think or just pointing out that America has seen worse times but regardless he says that anyone's going to lose faith in America that's a big mistake which brings us to his persistent message of being a long-term optimistic pointed out that despite all these challenges from seventeen eighty nine until today the wealth of the of the United States has grown five thousand percent and that's adjusted for inflation. He also pointed out that since the year he graduated from college in Nineteen Forty nine at the age of nineteen one dollar in the Dow has grown to one hundred dollars. So how do people benefit from what he calls the American miracle? Well as he often does and I think it's always interesting that he does this during the Berkshire hathaway annual meeting because it's an annual meeting of people who own individual stocks. He thinks the vast majority of people should just by an S. and P. Five Hundred Index Fund and. He mentioned that's what he does. That's what he has directed his will when he passes away swimming. He predeceased. His wife. Ninety percent of that wealth will go into an SAP hundred index fund. In fact one question asked about Berkshires underperformance as a stock. It's underperformed this year as well as the last decade a something. I know personally because I've owned Berkshire for more than a decade and he was basically said. I agree that that's an issue. He said that the truth is that I recommended. Sap Five Hundred Index Fund. To most people. And I happen to believe that Berkshire is about a solid is any single investment can be in terms of earning over time. But I would bet my life on whether we beat the sap five hundred over the next ten years so as always with buffet. It comes down to betting on America for the long term. But it's clearly means the long term to be like very long-term it mentioned the timeframe twenty to thirty years a couple of times the only truly positive thing he said about shorter timeframe at least that I can remember was in response to a question about whether Berkshire expect significant significant layoffs among its workforce which at this point. It employs almost four hundred thousand people in response. He said that some businesses will have to make adjustments. See's candies closed down. Nebraska Furniture Mart. Some of their factories may have issues. It's the funniest list of companies. I'm sorry Oh it's like it's very clean seas it's like what. Why Energy facturing? Yeah it's it's everything it's all these companies that you like. Yeah I think I've I think I've heard of Kim or have it at all. It's quite amazing. But well while he expects it some there will be have to be some layoffs. He doesn't expect them to be significant in that five years from now he expects Berkshire we'll be employing considerably more people so that to me says he expects five years from now. Things will fully recover and I think that's a reasonable timeframe. I certainly expected in five years. This time period will feel like somewhat of a distant memory. I certainly hope so But it's certainly possible that over the next year or two things could turn out to be pretty rocky

Welcome to Bobby like carton. Glad to have you in the house. Thank you so much to be here. So TJ what inspired you and your team to come up with this idea. Yeah. Definitely. That you sort of started back when my friend, she just starting to learn to drive and around that time with the same time that Amar state of New Hampshire, had an aunt and acted antitax driving law. And I got to witness first hand some of the really crazy distractions that happened behind the wheel of new drivers. We've seen it driving down the highway. We see that person on their phone doing makeup doing something and causing weaving back and forth. And during that time we thought there must be a solution out there, obviously, the statistics are quite sagging their over thirty five hundred people who die each year, due to distracted driving, and over four hundred thousand people are seriously injured and research to always found were recording devices which are only after the fact. So the tell you fast, you're going when you hit the tree, they don't actually do anything prevent it. So we create a solution that would do two things one, it would be able to detect and help with many types of distraction. Not just cell phone use, and also that'd be able to alert drivers before an accident. Help them a date a void danger situation. To begin with. Interesting so share with our car listeners and viewers a little bit about your business. Definitely, so more will Inc. And our product is called smart wheel. It insults just like a regular steering. We'll cover.
