Oxford studying nasal spray coronavirus vaccine
"Oxford University's starting a Phase one trial to see if it can administer its AstraZeneca vaccine as a nasal spray. The university says the vaccine will be the same, but it will be delivered using an intra nasal spray device similar to many over the counter hay fever, nasal sprays. One of the trial's chief investigators, saying quote Some immunologists believe that delivering the vaccine to the site of the infection may achieve enhanced protection, especially against transmission and mild disease and quote such a vaccine would remove the need for needles and make it potentially easier to
Fresh "Oxford University" from Statehouse Happenings
"Not very likely, but not a good idea. The odds of who will win the NC double a national basketball championships. While probability theory is based on calculations using very complex formulas, we use these kinds of probabilities and projections to help us determine our responses in different circumstances every day. When the weather Channel says that there's a 40% chance of rain. That's probability theory at work. So we ask ourselves should I take an umbrella or not? There's a one in 20 million chance of winning the lottery. So we ask ourselves Should I buy a ticket or not? There's a one in 95 million chance of dying in the street car accident. So we ask. Should I ride one or not? Every day. We use probability theory in one way or another. Typically by asking ourselves either consciously or subconsciously. Mm. What are the chances of that? Well, believe it or not, someone has applied probability theory to the central question of our faith. And really the underlying question of this day. Jesus Christ really rise from the dead on that first Easter morning. What are the chances of that? Dr Richard Swinburne, professor of philosophy at Oxford University. Has proceeded to weigh evidence for and against the resurrection, assigning values two factors like the probability that there is a God the nature of Jesus behavior during his lifetime and the quality of witness testimony after his death. Resenting his findings. At a conference at Yale University Professor Swinburne ran the numbers and using a probability formula known as bays Theory, Um Determined given E and K H is true if and only if C is true, meaning the probability of H given E and K is 0.97. Let me translate that for you. According to his calculations, the probability of Jesus actually rising from the dead on that first Easter morning is a whopping 97%. Not bad, I'd say. If there was a 97% chance of rain. Take an umbrella. If there was a 90 cents 7% chance of winning the lottery. I'd buy a ticket. If there was a 97% chance of dying in the street car accident. I'd walk. So, like other apologists.

No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area.

Europe resumes AstraZeneca vaccinations amid skepticism
"Italy and france will resume their rollout today of astra zeneca. Oxford universities corona virus vaccine with portugal and the netherlands to follow next week. It comes after a brief suspension prompted by fears of an increased risk of blood clots. The european medicines agency concluded late. Yesterday the vaccine is safe to use. And it's effective to bolster bruised confidence in the vaccine francis. Prime minister said he'll receive one of the astrazeneca shots right away. He also announced a month-long lockdown in parts of the country to combat rising infection rates. The bbc's hugh scofield has more from paris prime minister jean castex parts of france were now in what looked like a third wave of the virus in the whole of the country. There are thirty five thousand cases a day being reported and three quarters of these are of the new british variant in the paris region. The situation is particularly worrying with twelve hundred. Covert patients in intensive care more than at the peak of the second wave in november under the new lockdown schools and universities will remain open. And there'll be no limit to the time people can spend taking out doors. Non essential shops will be shot and travel from paris to other regions is banned. The nationwide curfew remains in place but will start from seven instead of six. Pm when summertime comes in.
AstraZeneca Vaccine Is Safe, Europe's Drug Regulator Says
"Other news, Europe's top medicines regulator announcing that AstraZeneca's Oxford University Coburn 19 vaccine is safe that despite reports of unusual blood clots in a number of people among the 18 million who had received the vaccine at least one dose in Europe or in great Britain. Researchers for the Mm, which is the European equivalent of the U. S. Food and Drug Administration said they cannot totally rule out the possibility that a few dozen cases of blood clots and disorders out of those vaccinated would be triggered by the shot but overall, adding the vaccine is safe and should be delivered across Europe and elsewhere. Now a number of countries across Europe, including Germany, France and Italy, have paused on giving the AstraZeneca vaccine right now. It is not available in the U. S. But it's new test results become available. The company is expected to ask the FDA Before approval that could come in the next few
Ireland Suspends Use of AstraZeneca's Vaccine
"Has temporarily suspended the use of a covert 19 vaccine made by AstraZeneca, NPR's Jon Hamilton reports. The move is described as precautionary. Ireland's Department of Health took the step after reports that four people in Norway developed blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca shot. The vaccine, made in conjunction with Oxford University is not approved in the U. S. But it has been given to millions of Europeans. It remains unclear whether any blood clots have been caused by the AstraZeneca Vaccine. Ireland's National Immunization Advisory Committee said the suspension reflects an abundance of caution, and both the European Medicines Agency and the World Health Organization continue to support the vaccines use. Ireland's move came after countries including Norway, Italy and Austria, suspended or limited use of the vaccine.

WHO Formally Authorizes the Use of the AstraZeneca Vaccine
"Of time. The World Health Organization is green lighting AstraZeneca's Oxford University's vaccine for emergency use. We've seen this now with modern and Fizer, it was widely speculated that it would get approved quickly, and the approval comes after a review has determined that the AstraZeneca vaccines benefits outweigh The risks, so the move will now allow the U. N to ship millions of doses to developing nations across the globe. The vaccine's still has not been approved for use in the United States. Dr Fauci says that may not happen for a couple more weeks.
Astra approved! But do we have a boomer problem?
"We finally got the therapeutic goods administration approval of the oxford university astrazeneca vaccine in australia. Which was something that was hinted that was coming soon last week. By paul kelly Yesterday it happened. Norman fine print. Well i'll give you a big print. I look at the big print is this is a really good decision. Untrustworthy decision on the part of the therapeutic goods administration. It creates a political problem for the government. But it's it's it's a sound decision based on the evidence so they've they've maintained an independent position so it's really quite impressive so the first thing is that they have said and i think we've presaged this on corona cast. They've said that the ideal dozy jr is twelve weeks. Apart at standard does of the astro vaccine twelve weeks apart now the evidence is from the clinical trials and presumably they got more since they published trial in december. Is that if you give the vaccine three months apart. Then you get ninety percent. Efficacy in terms of preventing symptoms mild to severe symptoms of covid nineteen and it gives one hundred percent protection against severe disease so in fact the dosage reaching recommended brings it up to the performance of the pfizer vaccine. When you say a standard dice is that the original standardise that was always being used or is that the half dose that was used in one of the parts of the trial that we were talking about las g. no martin standing is to standard doses according to the trial not the accidental. Half does that was given as part of the british trial so it's two standard doses three months apart. And if we're able to do that there's a problem with that. By the way is that you can get variance coming in as a long time to wait in new things can happen with the virus but it does give you that high degree of efficacy which is great news. The detail here is that they had a problem with their trial is that they were late. In recruiting people over sixty five and the trials do not have a large number of people aged over sixty five who actually got infected so they can't actually give you a number for the efficacy of the vaccine in the over sixty five they can give you the average but not offer the over sixty five themselves now. What they say is that in the an. It's true in the laboratory testing over sixty-five very strong antibody response. Which makes you think that you will get efficacy in new over sixty five. But they've got no proof of it in trials yet that will emerge as time goes on and there in lies the problem for the government because in the light of that they probably you know and they're going to go with the evidence people over sixty five shoud get the pfizer vaccine to be absolutely sure. It's highly likely astra one will work in over sixty five. It'll certainly prevent severe disease. You would imagine. But there's no solid evidence of that. At this time you'd be going on the antibodies on the on the flip side of that just so too negative about all this. Is that when you bring on a new vaccine into the market like influenza vaccines or others which is already being tested. Randomized trials you do tend to go on whether or not the having effective antibody response and rely on that so it's not unusual to rely on an antibody response. It's just that the moment we'd like to know that it does prevent disease. So that's the story what we'd be. What's been approved. As a ninety percent effective vaccine and therefore it will prevent severe disease and be really good at malta mortar disease and maybe prevent transmission because one of the few vaccines to be tested for transmission.
The Latest: Oxford University testing vaccine in children

Use AstraZeneca vaccine even in countries with variants, WHO panel advises
"The vaccine made by AstraZeneca and Oxford University should be used in places with new variants of the Corona virus. The vaccine ran into some trouble this past weekend when a small study out of South Africa showed it wasn't very effective against the new dominant strain of the virus there, joining us now MPR's global health correspondent Jason Beaubien to talk more about this. Hi, Jason. Hey, Rachel. The world's been waiting on wh o authorization of this very important vaccine. What did they say today? Yeah, Today, this was not yet the full authorization. They were offering interim guidance. But it was very important And basically, they're saying yes, the AstraZeneca's vaccine can still be used. And there's basically saying that this study showed that there was reduced efficacy on this dominant strain that has started T O Be spreading in South Africa. But even so, the limited evidence almost no evidence that it was preventing severe disease. So based on what they're seeing, they're saying that countries, including South Africa should push forward with using this vaccine. Here's Catherine O'Brien. She's the head of immunization at the W. H O The advice from sage and taken on board, now by wh O is to proceed with the vaccine, even in the setting of variants. And that was the key takeaway. Keep proceeding with these vaccines. Even where we're seeing these these new variants popping up but Jason that city from this past weekend, Not only did it show that in in preventing extreme disease, it showed there was a market reduction in the effectiveness of AstraZeneca vaccine in preventing mild to moderate disease, So I mean, given that how do they justify going ahead? Well, they say that that study was a small study. Um, and that's that he didn't answer the question about you know our old people protected by this vaccine or not, And they believe that the AstraZeneca vaccine even in what looks like you know, the worst place in the world right now, In terms of variants, South Africa, It's still offers some protection and it hopefully will keep older people from getting really sick. Bond. That's why they're saying they should keep moving forward with it until there's more evidence. So let's remind listeners this acting is not on the list of vaccine slated for use in the U. S, right. Yes, that's correct, but it still is not yet right now. Yeah, but it's still very important to much of the world. Absolutely. It is by far the most significant vaccine in terms of doses that are expected to be delivered this year. They're our purchase orders for more than two million doses of this vaccine. The AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine, the next leading manufacturer, globally, Speiser and their commitments about half of that roughly a billion doses. And the majority of AstraZeneca's vaccines are ex slated to go toe low and middle income countries. The WH OSE chief scientist Suman Swaminathan, she warned. Frontline workers and people who are risk of getting coded. Don't shop around, she said. Don't wait for the perfect vaccine. So now he's much better than waiting for something. Potentially. That may come down the road after six months or a year, So anything that's being approved by wh Oh, that's available in the country. Please don't take it. So there's really just the sense of urgency. She's saying, if you're getting offered a vaccine, go for it using while they still work what happens at this point So right now we're waiting on the W H o to actually offer my emergency youth listening, which we're expecting that to come in the next couple of weeks. All right, NPR's Jason Beaubien. Thank you. You're welcome.
Oxford University To Begin Trial On Mixed Vaccines
"The university of oxford is to start to trial combining vaccines made by astrazeneca. And it's an order to introduce more flexibility and speed in vaccinating the world but it comes to switzerland has said it needs more data before it approves the oxford astor's annika job despite both the uk and the eu not only approving it but fighting last week over. Getting hold of enough doses. Let's hear from dr chris smith monocle twenty health and science correspondent. Good morning chris. Good to have you back. How does this work then when you combine to actions well this technique is good hetero lagos vaccination quantum mouthful. But what it basically means. Is you give persons one jab of one time and then a bit later on after three four weeks twelve weeks you give them a totally different vaccine. But also on the designed to program the immune system against coronavirus. We've been doing this thing fractured decades for different kinds of infections. And it works really well and the reason. It probably works very well. Is that when you go to school and you learn your lessons you then learn how much you've learned when you sit in the exam whole basically it's knowledge but it's being applied tested and stressed in a different way and it sort of similar with how the immune response works to Seeing one kind of stimulus decry navarre's than another one. And you make them much more. Resilient and robust response that way or at least not as the theory that's the outstanding knowledge. We haven't tried it with krona var so to make sure that what we assume is happening. That's why the government is putting forward this seven million initiative to find
COVID-19 vaccine may reduce virus transmission.
"Covid nineteen vaccine shows a hint that it may reduce transmission of the virus in office strong protection for three months on just a single dose researchers said on wednesday in an encouraging turn in the campaign to suppress the outbreak. The preliminary findings from oxford university. A co developer of the vaccine could vindicate the british government's controversial strategy of delaying vaccine shot for up to twelve weeks so that more people can be quickly given a first dose up to now the recommended time between doses has been four weeks. The research could also bring scientists closer to an answer to one of the big questions about the vaccination drive. Will the vaccines actually curb. The spread of the corona virus. It's not clear. What implications if any the findings might have for the two other major vaccines being used in the west pfizer and madonna in the united states. Dr anthony found. She dismissed the idea of deliberately delaying. Second shots saying the. Us will go by the science and data from the clinical trials. The two doses of the fis into madonna vaccines are supposed to be given three and four weeks apart still. The research appears to be good news in the desperate efforts to arrest the spread of the virus and also suggests a way to ease vaccine shortages into more arms more quickly but it was unclear whether the vaccines could also suppress transmission of the virus. That is where the someone inoculated could still acquire the without getting sick and spread it to others as a result. Experts have been saying that even people who have been vaccinated should continue to wear masks and keep their distance from others.
Study finds COVID-19 vaccine may reduce virus transmission
"A covert vaccine being used in Britain may offer two forms of protection against the virus in just one single dose researchers at Oxford university say AstraZeneca's covert nineteen shot shows a hint that in addition to protecting people from becoming seriously ill after contracting cobit it may also reduce transmission of the virus up to three months with just a single dose this could support the practice in Britain of delaying the administration of a second shot so more people can receive an initial dose up until now the recommended time between doses have been four weeks not twelve the findings are based on samples of volunteers which showed a sixty seven percent reduction in positive test results among those who were vaccinated I'm Jackie Quinn
UK: New study vindicates delaying 2nd virus vaccine dose
"A new study seems to vindicate his decision to delay the second virus vaccine dose health secretary Matt Hancock says research is showing a single dose of the code with nineteen vaccine developed by Oxford university and AstraZeneca provides a high level of protection for twelve weeks supporting the government's strategy of delaying the second shot so more doses can be delivered to more people Hancock's comments came off the oaks that says this evidence the vaccine cuts transmission of the virus by two thirds and prevents serious disease the study has not been reviewed yet but has been greeted with excitement by British officials on the pressure to justify that decision to delay the second dose Charles hello this month London
EU Decision on AstraZeneca's Covid-19 Vaccine Expected Today
"European regulators will decide today whether to approve the astrazeneca oxford corona virus vaccine for use in the eu. It's a big moment for the union. European countries have been lagging behind in their vaccination rollout compared to the uk and the us one of the reasons for that is the eu had ordered more doses of the astra zeneca vaccine the the pfizer biontech vaccine which was approved in december. They'd been hoping this new approval would get them up to speed but even before that happens there have been complications. Astrazeneca has told the e you it won't be able to fulfil its order right away and now more shortages could be on the horizon to discuss the situation. I'm joined now by the wall street. Journal's boy on panchev ski from berlin. Glad you're here boy on hi there mark boy on. Why is this shortage emerging. So what's happening is this. The european union doesn't seem to have ordered enough. Those is from the companies that kind of in the vaccine in the race to put a vaccine to market. And not only that but now it happens so that astrazeneca which developed a vaccine together with to oxford university seems to have had a problem in its supply chain and it saying econ deliver the original amount does is there were promised for for the first quarter of this year and these two things together have basically created a lack of supply for the european union. And now they are simply not enough shots for for all the people that need to receive them boy on. What is the response from astra zeneca. We heard from an e you commissioner. Recently who expressed tremendous dissatisfaction. Yes well there has been actually a bit of a war of words between the european union national governments and the european commission which which speaks for the european union and on one side and astra astrazeneca the pharmaceutical giant on the other astrazeneca denies that dave violated contractual obligations. They're saying they would been deliver. What they are meant to be delivering. But they have a bit of a hiccup related to a contractor in belgium and therefore they won't be able to meet the target but they're not saying that they are breaking commitments in law and that's the debate between the two sides. The you saying you know you. You've said you'll do this. You have an obligation to do that. The contract we haven't seen it is not public It's confidential and there has been talk now that the contract would be published so we can all see what's actually written in the contract and who is actually honoring mets or not. Can you way the company kind of rejects the european byu. That is done something wrong. Essentially and they're basically in a nutshell saying this is a normal part of this. This huge complex effort to produce hundreds of millions dozes for the whole world in in a ongoing pandemic boy on as that discussion is taking place. What's happening across europe to deal with this well essentially. There's a bit of a political backlash now in some countries of the european union notably in the most populous country germany because it has become apparent that there are not enough those this of vaccines of any kinds against coronavirus in the immediate term and that essentially means that people will who are vulnerable will not be able to be To get the job and be protected he immediately and that means also that the lockdowns were might be prolonged that the restrictions and the measures that we have in place in europe will will loss longer than people have perhaps hope for. There's so much they can do. Essentially what they could do is they could order more dozes from the companies. That have a vaccine that has been authorized by regulators. And so far we've got. As of friday. Essentially three companies astrazeneca is most likely to be authorized in europe. Then we have pfizer and biontech and we have modern. So what the the choice for the european union's toward more is now the problem with that. Is that everyone's those so you if you whoever orders now will be at the back of the queue. there's global q. Of nations or waiting for supplies and and some of them are huge. Markets such as the united states such as great britain and in the case of zenica india. And so on. So that won't be easy and and there will be slight delay in delivering. Whatever new orders might might be placed
With Expensive U.S. COVID-19 Vaccines, Many Countries Look Elsewhere
"Virus. Pandemic vaccines will have to be distributed around the world. For most countries. The vaccines available in the U. S right now are simply too expensive and too difficult to transport as NPR's Joe Parker reports that is making vaccines made in Russia and China look attractive. There's a good reason China could play a key role in ending the global Corona virus pandemic. China has an enormous vaccine production capacity. Deborah Seligson is a China watcher at Villanova University. That enormous capacity is at least in part because China is an enormous country. And since public health measures have largely kept the virus in check in China, that means some of that capacity can be used to send vaccines around the world. There are going to be huge advantages to these Chinese vaccines once they're, you know, fully tested, and if they turn out to be a fact, if for one thing they don't require special refrigeration, and for another, they'll be cheap. But there's still that question of if they turn out to be effective. We just haven't seen the full trial results published yet. Abigail Copeland is on the faculty of Vassar College. She keeps her eye on Chinese biotech companies. The technology behind the two leading Chinese vaccines is decades old. It's an approach that was used successfully in the 19 fifties to make a polio vaccine. It involves growing the virus in a lab than in activating it with a chemical like formaldehyde and using that in a vaccine there, inactivated viral vaccine is based on research that they had conducted to develop a vaccine for stars and so that actually gave them a head start. SARS was a deadly outbreak in the early two thousands in China. Caused by a close relative of the covert 19 corona virus, But the virus causing stars disappeared so that vaccine got shelved. Hopeless. He's nothing nefarious about the delays and learning the results of trials of the Chinese vaccines. Since there's very little virus circulating in China to test their vaccine, the Chinese have had to turn to countries like Brazil, Indonesia and Turkey. And so when you're running that many trials internationally, it does take a lot of time to actually analyze that trial data. What's more, the results that have come out on how well the vaccine works have varied widely from 52 close to 90%. Without definitive results showing a vaccine works. Why have apparently more than a dozen countries around the world signed deals to get one of these vaccines? It's a measure of how desperate countries feel and how much uncertainty they face. J. Stephen Morrison is director of the Global Health Policy Center at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Most countries they're not throwing themselves hook line and sinker into partnerships with the with the Chinese. That's because there are other low cost alternatives. A vaccine. Made by Oxford University and AstraZeneca's also racking up lots of international customers, and it has been given some form of regulatory go ahead in several countries, including India. That country is also likely to have a vaccine candidate that will be inexpensive and widely available. But Judith Twigg says there's already another major entrant into the international vaccine arena. Back on August 11th the Russian government with great stand, Fehr announced the first in the world registration of a vaccine against Cove It twig is at Virginia Commonwealth University, and she follows Russian health policy closely. The Russian vaccine is what's known as a viral vector vaccine somewhat newer technology than the two leading Chinese vaccines. The Russians chose Sputnik V is the name for their vaccine. Tweak says They did that for a reason. They're very deliberately invoking imagery of Russia re emerging is great power status. We're back. We're at the scientific and technological top of the world, and we're ready to start sharing our technology with everyone. The problem there is that they had not only barely Started phase three clinical trials, They had barely started ramping up productions that was back in August. Twigg says production has ramped up and Russia now claims its vaccine is more than 90% effective, although data for that claim haven't been published yet for other scientists to scrutinize Several countries are ready to try the vaccine, including Argentina, Mexico and India. One thing is clear the world is going to need a number of vaccines to work if the global pandemic is really going to be brought under control. Joe

There are going to be huge advantages to these Chinese vaccines once they're, you know, fully tested, and if they turn out to be If active for one thing, they don't require special refrigeration, and for another, they'll be cheap. But there's still that question of if they turn out to be effective. We just haven't seen the full trial results published yet. Abigail Copeland is on the faculty of Vassar College. She keeps her eye on Chinese biotech companies. The technology behind the two leading Chinese vaccines is decades old. It's an approach that was used successfully in the 19 fifties to make a polio vaccine. It involves growing the virus in a lab than in activating it with a chemical like formaldehyde and using that in a vaccine there, inactivated viral vaccine is based on research that they had conducted to develop a vaccine for SARS. So that actually gave them a head start. SARS was a deadly outbreak in the early two thousands in China caused by a close relative of the covert 19 corona virus, But the virus causing stars disappeared so that vaccine got shelved. Copeland sees nothing nefarious about the delays and learning the results of trials of the Chinese vaccines. Since there's very little virus circulating in China to test their vaccine, the Chinese have had to turn to countries like Brazil, Indonesia and Turkey. And so when you're running that many trials internationally, it does take a lot of time to actually analyze that trial data. What's more, the results that have come out on how well the vaccine works have varied widely from 52 close to 90%. Without definitive results showing a vaccine works. Why have apparently more than a dozen countries around the world signed deals to get one of these vaccines? It's a measure of how desperate countries feel and how much uncertainty they face. J. Stephen Morrison is director of the Global Health Policy Center at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Most countries they're not throwing themselves hook line and sinker into partnerships with the With the Chinese. That's because there are other low cost alternatives of vaccine made by Oxford University and AstraZeneca is also racking up lots of international customers, and it has been given some form of regulatory go ahead in

"1 42. Now, the FDA says the agency's initial review of the Fizer covert 19 vaccine shows that it is the 95% effective against the virus. That is the first detailed look at it. Thursday of this week, an independent panel of experts will scrutinize that data and then they'll vote on whether to recommend use of the vaccine here in the U. S. Results from Oxford University and AstraZeneca today also suggests that it's vaccine is safe about 70% effective. Washington Post Health Policy reporter Page Winfield Cunningham joined us earlier, she says federal regulators are trying to make sure there aren't too many obstacles for getting the vaccine distributed. Two people here in the U. S. If we saw any big problems with the manufacturing process, of course, you know if any of the doses of the vaccine were compromised in any way, you know, I think federal officials are are well aware of this possibility. In fact, they've stressed that, you know well, they have 6.4 million doses of the five year vaccine ready to ship out. They're only going to ship out. You know, half of those doses initially with the concern that if you ship out all of the doses, so people have to get two shots, right. So the six million is enough to vaccinate three million. You give that first shots to three million people. Then you need to wait three weeks to give them that second dose. If they ship out all of the vaccines you could have Doses just sitting around and spoiling, potentially because they're supposed to be in very cold conditions. So I think they're aware of all of the things that kind of Congar wrong all along the whole pipeline of producing the vaccine, then getting it to the pharmacy's the hospitals and the doctors offices where the vaccines were going to be distributed. Again. Washington Post Health Policy reporter Page Winfield Cunningham, What else might you need to know about a potential Corona virus vaccine? W. T. O P s Christi King spoke with local doctor. There will be numbers. The vaccines, each one, maybe a little bit different in terms of its side effect profile and in terms of when you need to return for the booster dose, Dr David Good friend of Loudon County, all of them. Will be deemed safe and effective. First doses will go to hospital workers and residents of long term care since vaccine will be coming to us as soon as it's made available.

Oh, oh, they're going to be like the X men. He believes that alien human hybrids already exists. Okay. And he's mentioned this in a lecture in twenty twelve and has now written the book on it. So he's been thinking about this for a long time. So was the lecture about this. Or was he giving a lecture on light the Korean language, and then just went off on a tangent about alien babies. I assume that he was talking about the babies, and now he wrote a book about it in my mind.

Dr Chee believes that the insect aliens may be in charge and give orders to the other types. The aliens exist in their own bio system that humans cannot experience because our perception is limited by our organs. Now, these are all his claims, and he says as the aliens are said to be highly intelligent, Dr Chee believes that they could solve the problems of earth in the future such as things like climate change. So they come not for the sake of us, but for the sake of them their survival their survival is actually our survival.

"Program at oxford university i went over to oxford i went more down this rabbit hole of scientists and i went back to my master's my phd and i just absolutely loved it so it kind of just randomly happens but i've always been interested in history on was a little girl and you also tend to like well in your trip series at also in the book you tend to like the more gruesome aspects of science history it's it's true i mean i guess it's funny because i was just filming something on with my friend alexander who shoots my youtube series and we were in a graveyard yesterday and i was telling the story about how is a little girl i used to drag my grandmother from cemetery cemetery hunting goes we used to like to go ghost twenty but my grandmother was very much of a generation that you would go to a cemetery and on you would you would on pay respect to the relatives and she would tell me these wonderful stories about these people who lived in the past so i think on the surface a lot of people look at it and say oh you were really strange child and you were obsessed with death but for me graveyards were never creepy places they were they were places of love where people would go in remember the relatives and talk about the past and what it was like live in the past and that really sparked my interest in history as well but it is true that i kind of you know shifts towards the more gruesome aspects of history especially online and i like to say you know i've done a lot of articles and on youtube videos on a human skin books for instance and these books that were found in human skin in the nineteenth century for various reasons on a criminal was executed in the us the skin to bind a book about his crimes and i like to say that on i tell people come for the skin book can stay for the history because it's true very morbidly curious and so i think that polls an audience in hopefully once they come to my page or they come to my youtube series on my blog or whatever they actually learn something about the context of these kind of grizzly aspects of the past.
