South Africa halts AstraZeneca vaccine rollout
"South africa has halted its rollout of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine just a week after the country received. Its first million doses. It seems the vaccine offers limited protection against a new variant of the corona virus. That's now dominant in the country. Salim abdul karim co-chair of south africa's ministerial advisory committee on covid nineteen spoke to a world health organization briefing yesterday. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated million people too. Many people would have vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease in total more than one point. Two billion corona virus doses have been allocated for the continent. But it's not clear when all those jobs will arrive. The longer any region remains unvaccinated. The greater the chance that more variants arise vaccines though can be tweaked in a formulation of the oxford vaccine targeted at the south african variant could be going into arms by autumn. What scientists cannot address is the long run damage to africa both in human and economic terms so far continent to have been spared from the worst case scenarios predicted early on in the pandemic but the longer term picture remains bleak many ways the impact of the pandemic and africa is worse than it appears on the surface around the official numbers. Kenley salmon is one of our africa correspondent based in dakar. It is the case that having a young population has to some extent protected the continent from the virus africans and died from it that americans europeans but the true scott of infection. Death is really hard to gauge. Studying sudan recently showed the perhaps only two percent of all the covid desk for a quoted in the official tally and the economic impact is worse than it looks last year. The region's economy shrank for the first time. In twenty five years tourism has been badly hit as have commodity exporters things like oil in nigeria and taken together. Gdp per capita fell below twenty ten levels last year so things are perhaps not quite as bad as some other parts the world but certainly still very tough and things may get tougher house. What are the particular challenges to africa. Africa faces quite a number of challenges in the next few years as it tries to recover from the pandemic but the biggest i of the really is vaccines. Some african governments have perhaps failed to grasp the urgency of the situation in tanzania for example the populace president john food even casually cast out with a vaccine work but i do forgive aside claiming the postman precautions such as steaming nation were better than vaccines and even added that if the white man was able to come up with next nations then. Vaccinations for aids. Malaria and cancer would have already been found. So it's not so much a question than of supply. I mean given that quite a few vaccines have been essentially booked at the stage. A number of vaccines have been booked but the big question is when will they arrive because right now there aren't anywhere near the number of axes required forever on in the world and rich countries are of course the front of the queue for those vaccines have been produced africa's going to need perhaps two point six billion doses to vaccinate everyone and those are not being made locally so they have to rely on supplies elsewhere for the moment so that means joining the queue. All this means that whereas rich countries aim to vaccinate most of their people by the middle of this year the african. cdc a public health. Bali in africa's aiming for sixty percent of africans to vaccinated by the end of next year. But even that may be too optimistic. For the poorest countries. The economist intelligence unit sister organization estimates that in most african countries most people will not be inoculated until mid twenty twenty three or even early twenty twenty four and there must be serious consequences of it being that long until the continent is on average vaccinated. Africa is likely. It doesn't get those vaccinations into suffer. Further waves of the infection while after the disease may have amped in the rich world. And that of course will cause more death and more suffering. Doesn't risk that. Having the virus transmitting between people frequently africa could allow new variance to evolve. We've already got the south. African variant and these new variants could endanger people even in rich countries if they prove to be resistant to vaccines and then finally of course not having vaccines could force. African policymakers to continue with these very difficult economic lockdowns curfews even after many other countries around the world set free of those kinds of restrictions and if the public health concern lasts that long then surely the economic concerns will last at least that long. That's right in many african countries facing pretty severe crises at the moment just getting finance to pay their bills. Africa has very limited fiscal space on average countries in sub saharan africa. Spending more than thirty cents on every dollar. They raise and text revenue paying their debts. And that's up from twenty cents on the dollar before the pandemic on the debt side to over half of low income sub saharan african countries are now classed as in distress or at high risk of distress. According to the imf and what about countries with bigger economies the two biggest economies in africa nigeria and south ever both in pretty deep trouble nigeria for example was described by the world. Bank is being an unprecedented crisis. Recently the bank is not normally quite so blunt in nigeria. There has been a legacy of management for a number of years and pandemics really accessible that quite badly. Now focused suggested by twenty twenty three. Gdp per capita may go back as low as it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty time when the oil price was some high on so africa too is in trouble that have been in recession twice in the last three years before the pandemic hit of course now is dribbling itself with a particularly heavy toll from the pandemic so both countries in fact are facing a difficult road out of the crisis. And what about outside help in terms of financing has been quite a bit of outside help although the crisis of course is very big but in twenty twenty the imf for example provided sixteen billion dollars in loans most of that came with relatively few strings attached and this help frigging countries to respond to the pandemic to avoid some of the liquidity crises that were looming the world bank also dispersed another ten billion but many countries got that funding to if the imf under emergency allocations that came quickly and relatively easily and those allocations for many countries will soon be exhausted. The rich world has been trying to help when it comes to debt. They've provided liquidity to countries through some bits of suspension initiative that basically allows poor countries to put off debt repayments until july. Twenty twenty one. This is of course helpful but the trouble is that those payments just suspended and they have to be paid back with interest in about five years time so as the chief economist for africa the world bank put it to us. It may just be kicking the can down the road to. How do you see this playing out. Then how high could the human cost of all this be while the stakes are pretty high. The pandemic has already done lower damage to people's health and africa. it's hitting their economic prospects and they wealth and it's also affecting education of course. Hundreds of millions of students in africa have been affected by school closures. This increases the risk of dropouts and reduces the prospects for africa's largest every generation so overall the costs here really quite significant. There are some reasons for optimism. We may see vaccine rollouts accelerate. There's also hopes that commodity price rises could give africa real boost as the global economy recovers been on balance. The evidence probably points to at pretty difficult road ahead with several more waves of the virus hitting already struggling health systems and perhaps a form of economic long covert in africa. So you know africans have come through this showing remarkable resilience but it may be toughest years are still to come in. Thank you very much for joining us. thank you
U.S. new COVID cases down 21% in past week, deaths fall from peak
"States reported a 21% drop in new cases of covert last week. As all but one state reported declines into effect infections and the number of coronavirus patients in hospitals also fell. The country reported 1.2 million new cases in the week ending January, 24th down from 1.5 million new cases in the previous week. It was the biggest decline in both a percentage and absolute basis in the past year. That means that it was all of Corona, right? Yeah, according to a Reuters analysis of state and county reports. New Hampshire was the only state where cases rose in California. Ah ha spot. Hospitals have been overwhelmed by the number of patients. New cases fell 32% in the past week. Deaths from the virus also fell 6.6% last week to about 21,000 across the country with Arizona, Alabama in New Mexico. Having the highest per capita death rates death throes in 17 out of the 50 states last week and are lagging indicator, meaning they can rise for weeks after cases and hospitalizations following and we were talking about that because it's going to the hospital. You can sit there and you could be in the hospital for 456 weeks. Yeah, uh, So the average number of covert 19 patients in hospitals fell 7.5% from the previous week. The biggest one drop one week dropped on a percentage basis since the week ending August 9th, according to Reuters, analysis.
Massachusetts coronavirus vaccine sign-ups plagued by problems as Phase 2 rollout begins
"Medical researchers who work remotely have been rolling up their sleeves to get the covert vaccine. Meanwhile, seniors are waiting on the sidelines not yet eligible. Massachusetts has one of the nation's largest hospital workforces, and officials there have decided to put all of them at the front of the line. Gabriela Emanuel of member station GBH in Boston reports. Carol Helper set is 82. She's been in her apartment just outside Boston. Since the beginning of the pandemic. Nobody comes in. Nobody goes out. I become more and more despairing and lonely cut off some human contact helpers that has a long list of complex medical issues. The most urgent one. She's going blind, She says. She's desperate for ice surgery. But in order to safely be in the hospital, she needs a vaccine. The vaccine would change my life. It would give me the future for weeks. She's been desperately trying to figure out how to get a shot. I am still Totally Totally in the dark. She's watched with jealousy as seniors in many other states have started receiving vaccines. She studied data from the CDC finding Massachusetts in the bottom half of states in per capita vaccinations. But perhaps most baffling is seeing healthy young people get inoculated before the elderly and the sick. We're seeing just a huge number of people get vaccinated. Who I think you know, should frankly be way down the line. Michael Mina is at Harvard School of Public Health, the other people who have nothing to do at all with Cove ID or with Patient care. We're really with the hospitals. They just happen to be employed by a hospital, and thus they can get the vaccine. Ah, few things are happening here. First, the federal level nationally, vaccines are being distributed to states based on their total population. The federal government has told states to prioritize certain groups like healthcare workers with lots of hospitals. Massachusetts has lots of health care professionals at the front of the line and effectively means that the elderly and vulnerable people who might need the vaccine first will generally be pushed back the second factor state and hospital level decisions. Here. The health care worker category has been defined to include all hospital employees. Those in research labs and telemedicine in HR, including people working remotely. Paul Bettinger oversees the vaccine rollout at the Mass General Brigham. He says his hospital network needed to bring in some of those working from home during the first surge. They called up researchers and administrators and others in the intensive care unit listening for the alarms of ventilators because the federal surge ventilators that we had wouldn't plug into our alarm systems now a third issue, individuals have been flaky. Dana Farber Cancer Institute sent out a mass email saying quote we have had far too many researchers not show up for covert 19 vaccinations over the past week. The result of the email says, is vaccines that may have been wasted. These challenges have been compounded by communication missteps and technical glitches, and Massachusetts has admitted hundreds of thousands of doses are sitting unused in hospital and pharmacy freezers. Governor Charlie Baker has announced. Those over 75 will be eligible on the first of February, and he's hoping they'll have enough vaccines to meet all the pent up demand. For NPR News and Gabriella

Dr anthony inc alaska's chief medical officer first credits estates communities for working together to get people vaccinated quickly. Second she says.

Hawaii is a ‘fast food capital,’ new study says
"Here. And as it turns out, there's one surprising place in the country where it's theoretically easier to do so than another's. According to a new study. Hawaii has the most fast food restaurants per capita in the country and average of 97.5 fast food locations per 100,000 people. As a 2019. The Census Bureau estimated the state population was a little more than 1.4 million, which could give Hawaii around 1365 total fast food restaurants course. Given its relatively small size. Hawaii has nowhere near the most fast food joints in the country. New York, for example, has an estimated 17,900, California. Most populous state has over 32,500. Yeah. So Hawaii, huh? So I guess you know, probably catering mostly to tourists. I'm guessing or at least more than the population would lead you to believe because of all the tourist cause the tourist population probably, you know, almost sometimes outnumbers the native population. I would think I would think, too, that the vast

5 charts show what the global economy looks like heading into 2021
"Our yesterday's professor fluke. She's vice president of research. And the william davidson senior fellow for economic policy at israel democracy institute. She's the former governor of the bank of israel and professor at department of economics at the hebrew university of jerusalem earlier this month Professor flog served as the co chair of the idea is l. e. horovitz conference where the most pressing issues relating to israel's economy and society where discussed professor conflict. Hello and welcome back to the tel aviv review. Good morning. so. When corona virus hit it seemed like we were heading for an economic downturn that would rival the great depression but according to the bank of israel and always estimates israeli economy in terms of gdp per capita on employment growth and other measurements seems to be bouncing back and within a few years to return more or less to the levels prior to the crisis and it seems also that this crisis if everything goes according to plan will even less devastating than the two thousand nine hundred thousand nine downturn. So where the initial estimates and overreaction altogether anything wrong. I think we're still in the middle of a very serious crisis. It's true that recently we've seen some oppo revisions both today. A growth estimates of the global economy and also for the the projections for the israeli economy. But still we're talking about a very deep recession globally. Were talking about according to the most recent projections of the cd. We're talking about a contraction of over four percent this year and hopefully a rebound of about four percent next year. This is just in comparison to the global financial crisis the global economy contracted by only zero point one percent so we're still talking about a very deep recession and that's true also for the israeli economy If we are on the path as described by damore to mystic scenario that was a published by the bank of israel it means to the economy will contract this year by about five percent. And we'll rebound by about six percent next year. If we are on the less optimistic scenario where the corrina is not contained the pandemic is not contain then we will have a somewhat more severe contraction this year but much slower recovery by next year so i would say Were still talking about two very serious crisis. A very severe recession however it's true the israeli economy is doing somewhat better relative to other economists. I
U.K. and European Union reach Brexit trade deal
"Has agreed to a post Brexit free trade deal with the European Union with just a week to go before New Year's Eve deadline. We're expecting very shortly to hear from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was a key campaigner for Brexit during the landmark referendum. 4.5 years ago. We want to turn to NPR's Frank Langfitt in London. He has covered the entire Brexit saga and joins us for this moment. Good morning, Frank. But Good morning, David. Well, it feels like we're there. It is. Actually we're just watching the press conference in Brussels. The You actually announcing this and we are waiting for Prime Mr Johnson. It's yet It's feel like it's been a long time coming. Yeah. How did negotiators finally finally get across the finish line here? Well, they had the actual were one of the big sticking points believed or not. David was a matter of fish and fishing grounds. I know that that might sound kind of odd to listeners in America well, because well, because Fisher is such a small part of, say, the European well, particularly the U. K economy, but this was also A matter of how much more fish the European fleets could continue to take from UK waters, and it actually had a big symbolic value for people here. If you remember back in 2016, the Brexit campaign slogan was all about taking back control. And basically the idea was that this nation state, the United Kingdom could be better off without European Union. Making its own rules and things like that. And so it was very hard for the UK toe. Be able to say yes, you can continue to take fish out of our waters, but in the end of the UK did agree to some things for the European Union, and that seems to have gotten over the line today. I mean, this was so much more than symbolism. This called such of a debate about what to do and what Brexit could mean for the United Kingdom. Do we know what the deal does mean? Going forward? You know, we do it. We're still waiting. It's apparently 2000 pages of material start when it actually does it only but it only covers so much of the economy What it will allow. We believe Is the UK to export to the U tariff and quota free. Well, that's really important to the foot for the honor Kingdom to be able to do that to do sort of as frictionless trade as possible. And then in the shorter run. Just just this week that you are talking about there was real concern that there was no deal Brexit. If this all fell apart, you see even more chaos at the borders in about seven days when the Brexit transition period ends well, We've already got a look at what that could look like this week, France closed down the port of Dover effectively and shut down the borders with the UK over the this Corona virus variant that we've been a coronavirus parent we've been reporting on We have thousands and thousands of trucks still stuck on this Chuck's side of the channel, so they're no deal. Braxton is a great concern that things would be even worse, and Brexit would cause more damage, Frankly. I just want to be really clear here, and I know you have 2000 pages to read, so it's gonna take a lot of things that there was in here, but But it is not clear that this will make the U. K a richer country. No, no, no, not at all. And I think David's really important for people to understand. That certainly Ah, lot of economic analysts and trade analysts would say that this deal averts. You know, a real basically could be a bit of a disaster at the end of the year. But it's not. It's what we would call a very thin deal. It doesn't deal with much with services. It's mostly with trading products, imports and exports. It's a hard Brexit. And economists say, even with his deal, per capita income in this country is still going to be reduced the growth by about 6.4% over the next 10 years, so many people would say. Certainly an economic analyst would say This was a choice between bad and worse. Okay. I'm sure I'll be hearing much more from you throughout the day. Frank just restating the news. The announcement is taking place as we speak. The UK government has reached a post Brexit deal with the European Union will be following this story. NPR's Frank Langfitt force in London, Frank Thank you so much. Great to talk, Dave.
Breakthrough: UK and EU reach post-Brexit trade agreement
"European Union seem ready to sign a post Brexit free trade agreement before the end of the year. New Year's Eve is the deadline. Let's remember the U. K voted to leave the EU four years ago and it has been a saga since then. And let's turn to Who else MPR's London correspondent Frank Langfitt, who has covered All the big moments in the socket. Good morning, Frank. Good morning, David. Feel like I'm gonna believe this when I see it, but it sounds like we're getting close. What? What are the sticking points here? Well, interestingly enough, One of the main sticking points was actually fishing rights. I know that may seem, you know, given this is going on for so long. That may seem very odd toe listeners. Fishing is only less than 1% of the British economy. But what mattered, I think, particularly to British negotiators and Boris Johnson is back in 2016 when there was this vote. Bars Johnson and others. Their slogan was Take back control. Take back control of our waters. You know our our money our laws from Brussels from the EU, and so that's why symbolically, this has had an outsized role in the negotiations. Boris Johnson feels like he has to deliver and bring something back where people here feel like the United Kingdom really is leaving the EU and and moving on. And so own way to determine what kind of economic future is gonna have. Okay, so so fishing. I mean, a lot of symbolism there and and on many of these issues, but also so much at stake in this deal, as you've reminded us so many times there is I mean, this is the biggest trading partner for the United Kingdom there. They're leaving what they're hoping to get out of this deal and probably will will be terrifying, Quota free access to this enormous market. Of nearly 450 million consumers, and I think, particularly with his deadline coming up. David is to get some kind of deal so we don't see more chaos of the borders at the end of this year. When there's this Brexit transition period that ends and we've gotten a sense of how bad things could be just this weekend when France closed the borders because of the Corona virus variant we've been reporting about that appears to be Highly infectious and so France block things at the port of Dover. We now have, like 6000 trucks actually stranded around that part of the county, Kent in the southeast of England, waiting truck drivers waiting for negative covert 19 tests to be able to cross back and hopefully it's most of them. This will not work out for get home for Christmas. E into that could be a lot to sort of sacrificed. Here's as this process goes forward. I guess I just wonder, Frank A simple question. If this deal is confirmed, will it make the United Kingdom richer? No. In fact, it will do it. Sort of. Ah, choice. I think economists and trade experts will tell you, David choice between bad and worse. Getting a deal will help keep trade moving as frictionless as possible across the English Channel. But this is a feared thin deal. This is we've often talked about as hard Brexit. The U. K economy will not be is integrated with EU economy. For instance, financial services They're big business here in London. They're gonna have much less access to the European market than before. An economist that I've been talking to now for years, say that over the next decade, Even with this deal, per capita income here will be more than 6% less. Then, if the UK had actually stayed in the U E. We should say this whole saga cost two prime ministers their jobs. What is amazing political about Boris Johnson? I mean, calmer times for him, If if this goes through I think so. I mean, we're expecting to see him outside of number 10 Downing Street today, basically doing a victory lap and he will get credit for actually bringing this in. On the other hand, Brexit was always a gamble for this country, You know? Can they do it on their own outside of the EU and also Brexit has been so divisive that we've now seen up in Scotland is anger over that because the Scots voted against this There's now a bigger push for Scottish independence, and that could be the next big problem that Boris Johnson has to address next year.
Gov. Bill Lee enacts gathering restrictions, refuses mask mandate as Tennessee COVID-19 outbreak surges
"As we monitor covid nineteen across the country. Let's take a closer look at the outbreak in tennessee which now tops the us. In per-capita cases of the coronavirus joining us is blake farmer. Healthcare reporter for national public radio. Blake the tennessee health. Commissioner said yesterday that another holiday surge would break the state's hospitals. What is the situation like there now. Well when you look at hospitals you can talk about capacity in terms of percentages. But they just don't tell the whole story. Hospitals are expanding their covert. Icu's they're turning waiting rooms into patient areas at least. Two hospitals in tennessee had a call on a government stockpile for ventilators. They've been making it work and they're doing more than they ever could have imagined earlier this year but they are really worried about. What's next for the next few weeks. We see that thirty percent of covid tests are coming back positive in tennessee and yet the governor bill lee a republican continues to refuse a statewide mask mandate would what steps is he taking if any. He's really been adamant about not mandating masks. He notes that about seventy percent of the state is under mask mandates. Right now local ones. He argues a statewide. Mandate could actually backfire. Not sure how it would really make things worse. But he's certainly encouraging local. Mayors to to make that mask mandate at this point. Well governor lead. Did last night was banned public gatherings of more than ten people now. There are lots of exceptions weddings. Funerals religious services. It also doesn't actually restrict private gatherings even though the governor has said people really need to stay with just their household for the next month even during the holidays so these may not sound super strict but they are some of the first statewide restrictions tennessee heads since the summer. Yeah speaking of the holidays. Christmas of course is on friday and the new year so of hospitals are struggling right now. Are they prepared for what could come. Oh man i mean. The big issue is staffing not space it. The states even started to run out of options there though. They thought they'd be able to just fly in traveling nurses and doctors but they're not available. Now they're working all over the country so they've called on the medical reserve corps in the state which i'm not sure i even knew existed before this. They've even talked to students like maybe registered nurse. Who went back to be a nurse practitioner to ask them to spend their christmas break. Picking up shifts and state health officials. Say they're just looking under every rock to find help until vaccines kickin. Blake farmer from nashville public radio. Thank you so much. You're welcome
Nebraska Doctor Craves More Help, Less Hero Talk
"As of yesterday nebraska is considered one of the highest risk states in the country and some of alberta. Those patients have ended up in the hospital at the university of nebraska medical center. Where his partner. Dr jasmine marcellin is an infectious disease specialist. This particular hospital is known as one of the most pandemic ready hospitals in the entire country. Back in twenty fourteen. The hospital had one of only a handful of biocontainment units that were prepared to take in a bowl of patients and now it's taking in hundreds of covert patient's doctor merlin. How are things looking right now at the hospital at this point in time well we have been going through a pattern of a surge the last several weeks and we we were noticing that we're seeing more and more patients that are coming through all of that leading up to the hospital becoming more and more full and that was something that we were seeing across nebraska and my understanding is that you started with to covert units last spring But you have a lot more now. Yeah so our our hospital is. We still have a little bit of room. Not much room left how it has progressed over. The last several months has made it so that we a by early last week we had been up to ten covid units that we stood up in the hospital and so several floors of One tower we had to jump to another tower to create more covid units. And we seem to have just need for more and more units being opened. Yeah so. I know that you know. Even though that nebraska has a tremendous amount of cases per capita one of the highest in the country. Right now it does not have a mask mandate in place Many schools remain in person. You know restaurants and bars are open for indoor dining. I think you know it's safe to assume. Many people gathered in in groups over the thanksgiving holiday. What are you anticipating for the trajectory of cases in the region and capacity at the hospital. So usually we expect to see that you know when you see numbers doubling maybe every fourteen to twenty one days we can expect to see that after major events or large gatherings would be anticipating surges. And so as a whole as health care professionals in nebraska. We have all been pretty anxious about the holiday season knowing that. It's really such an integral part of a society to gather together but what we're concerned about is what the impact of people continuing to gather indoors is going to have and i'm just sad for what we could have prevented with more definitive actions. You know quite frankly. Sometimes it's devastating seeing the extent of the damage that this does to individuals and the death that it can cause all of that is just. It's preventable thing. That is the biggest tragedy me is is. It didn't have to be

"You don't get any of the backwards compatibility stuff on the disk, free console, or or something like that. You know who knows that wouldn't be the first time they've done something like that. Right like the trying to think. I thought threes were backwards compatible. At launch. It was eventually phased it out. I I could've sworn. It was only the sixty gig forty gig didn't just was. Something like that I. Do not remember. Forget him. I expected we would get a bunch of PS. Five email questions I mean technically we did, but they were practically all the same questions of what's wrong with bugs snack. Yes, exactly. They'll just said, would you? Would you be talking about bugs acts? Like ninety nine percent of the questions were. How much cheaper do you think the digital edition is going to be? Specifically, specifically like do you think they will discount dramatically as a way of getting people into their digital ecosystem and recoup on all the Games, they will have to buy it directly from Sony I. Don't think like if you think about where digital purchases have been trending even before everyone was at home. Like we were already heading in that direction in are in a real way so i. don't think they need to force it because I think it's just happened. Naturally over the course of this generation, sales on digital storefronts have been getting better and more frequent so he's been really good about some deep deep discounts on a lot of games. Yeah, I don't think they're quite esteem level. They're not having a esteem sale, but like around holidays and some of the different stuff throughout the year like they have decent discounts so. I feel like they're already days gone for like twelve bucks. Yeah I got no for two ninety nine got nothing from UK. Yeah, and that's that's like eleven dollars too much. So! Yeah, I, don't I feel like they're kind of like just heading in that direction naturally and they don't. They don't need to goose it. With the discus console and so I. I don't know that they necessarily. Art You know they benefit for sure, but also they benefit from every every new disc based game sold also I don't think that they need to kill off used games quite as dramatically as other people. Seem to touch them especially way. WanNa doing that by themselves. Like it's an Amazon does game to other people do but. Most Games are monitoring beyond the initial purchase at this point. Right a lot of them are anyway. I would be shocked if the disclose version is more than fifty dollars cheaper. That's what I think. Yeah I would say fifty most person I think fifty makes sense from like you know if you look at the parts and all that sort of stuff like. I think that's sensible, but also. I still. Don't think fifty dollars is enough to matter. I feel like if you're not if you're not coming out and saying this is one hundred dollars cheaper. Are you. Is that a meaningful price cut for enough people. To wear to where it feels like it softens the blow of if the the high end version is. you know six hundred bucks right Yep if six hundred bucks, the other ones five forty nine. Like five forty nine is still quite a lot of money. I think it, so it definitely makes a difference for some people especially. If you're somebody like me, who at this point is kind of resigned to an old digital? Bath like I have no interest if it was twenty five dollars cheaper. That doesn't really change my opinion just because I. don't have the desire to have physical anymore. I'll tell you this. Some publishers are probably GONNA send US Games on disc yeah. We have to so for you personally. I'm sure but I mean like. I know there's other people who don't work in the industry. Who are like me on that? Yeah, totally totally. Yeah, and also I think the version without the drive looks nicer. It's a it's more definitely does fully realized version of their. On the bottom if you're doing the horizontal and it's on the I, don't like that. I think it would crazier if it was on top if there was. Bumped I'm just thinking from a pure like I'm bending down to where my consoles are not have to look under the part where it sticks out to put a in. Not Weird it's weird. You think you think five ninety nine. For the disc version. That's Mike based on what he said. I hope based on what he said maybe I. Don't know, man I I feel like no less than four ninety nine with a quote like that. Oh Yeah no less than certainly But also like five ninety nine is not the same amount of money. It was last time they did it. and. I also I don't think Microsoft will come in that. I I I didn't realize this stuff has all come back when I was going back and looking at. You stories that they have been eating. Maybe not now, but a launched. They were eating a loss on xbox one XS. Really. First I like company has done that in a while right? Yeah, so my. Crossed, that bridge already like I'm super curious to see if like. That's their answers. Sony. Strong showing is like we'll check this out. And I think that's why you didn't get a price here. And why why? The price is going to be that like last minute like? Oh, we we are! They're playing chicken with each other on the price. Stuff really really seems that way and. Not only not only as Microsoft just a mass massively bigger company with more cash in the bank. But it's. The game passes like a pretty strong factor at this point right so they can get an extra justify if we can specially if they're rolling out like a twenty dollars a month, or whatever like payment plan style package.

"Mostly, sherve where even without at this point, so it is another I know that it's also like Sony decades raise Sony Executives, said something that implied that it was remastered well. I should say what it actually is. It's Marvel Spider Man Miles Morales is the. Name for a video. That's branding man layer there. Yeah, Yeah, so they announced it and it seemed like it was a full on new game during the presentation, and they led with it, they were like. Here's the new Spiderman. You know like Oh awesome. I note second game. They showed the first. Sorry yes. Five, but EH, executive made some comments that made it sound like it was an expansion to a red remastered version of the original game. and. INSOMNIAC got out there and said this is a standalone. I'll just read the Marvel Spiderman. Man Miles Morales is the next adventure in the marvel's Spiderman universe. we will reveal more about this. Stand alone game at a future date. But I still sounded like it is perhaps more of a first light. First Light Orleans charted lost, or whatever like. I forget what the lost was, but army last lightweight. I like I like I like. You play his. Yeah right first light. It's been a while, but. He was a forty dollar game so like Yes standalone game, but also not like a full price thing, but the time that was like easily eight ten hour. Thing like it didn't feel short to me, so this could very well be substantial, even if it's not like a full priced yet. Infamous was not impetus. First light was a a decent Lee. Lang shot yeah game also, but you know, but I think that might be a better if we think about the toughest game that Spiderman is and the stuff they have shown off in doing tech Demos, and whatever else like infamous was like. Hey, we have this city already said a new adventure in it and I suspect. That's what Spiderman on the being because I think that's what makes the guys. Comments Make Sense. You know clearly did not get his talking points before going and doing that interview when he said it was remastered and also stuff like okay. Yeah, they'll the remastered the city. It's still New York. Because of course it is. And, so it's a remastered and expansion on top of that. I think the thing for me is. And I guess it won't. Be. It won't but I was GONNA. Say like you know. Does it have the content of the for Spiderman game in they're. Probably not. If they are calling it standalone than than yeah. So, yeah, I didn't do themselves. Any favours with the that stuff. Or Earth the person who gave that interview and caused all this confusion. was was did not did not do that. Game any favors. After the fact a they seem to have clarified it just well enough for. FOR IT NOT TO BE A. A huge problem at the same time like having a thing that might be a more a budget game being the thing you're leading off with. That's when you start getting into like okay. What are they launching with? How substantial is it? What are what are we getting here? I, think that's the those are the questions you start to see form. But at the same time like may you know like I thought the stuff they showed of that Spiderman game. Looked, pretty, nice. I thought the stuff that they showed with ratchet did a good job of starting to show what you might be able to do with a very fast hard-drive. Fast SSD of you know like like built around that idea of a we can stream this shit in super fast and not loaded and do all that stuff like. They showed that they needed to show to start to illustrate some of those points I think. I thought that was. Effective. Really effective. Trying to think like he was ratchet, it was spiderman. There's new horizon game forbidden West. And I think that's it for full-on. Robber First Party Games unless the demon's souls remake. You finally got announced, and maybe that's also I guess I also be. Flown exclusive. New Astro. Right, yes, couple Zach boys boy. Yeah, you're right, so there's some like maybe smaller games, but timed exclusives for death loop. That's what I was going to say. It's a lot of third party stuff that is somehow temporarily exclusive. We don't know how long if that's thirty days or Six months or A Grant Tourism Oh yes. I love. Like? Like they showed grant, they actually showed a lot of tourism. Oh, and and I think they showed the right stuff I just love that like they're like unveiling gt seven and they're like look at this garbage. Ask Menu. It's a real game 'cause. Like every other enter Israel game. Here's some dumb ass map and says here's home and here's this. Here's all these trash. You I elements we cram into these grant original games every time. That's fantastic. Car still a pretty good cars look great cars. Ever, widing looks great like it's yeah. It looks it looks real nice, either and wetter than ever just like me. I will say personally the more I think about this thing more that the games that really stuck with me. Word more kind of. Cross Platform Games but just happened to get unveiled. Hear US talking about Bugs Neck I. WanNa talking I'm talking about bugs Max. My weenie hands Oh. You talking bug snacks. One hundred bucks snacks. How many bugs snacks that games? But they're also snacks i. just fuck in the strongest Viva opinion. Vibes off the I. Like twenty seconds of the trailer. Right possibly gotten. Still not entirely sure what? It is, but I don't care. Yeah I, trust I'm ready. I WANNA. Make the bug snacks, kiss and make more bugs snacks. You think when their lips touch. The bugs neck out on their mouth. Oh. Man I honestly like I'd filters if you're listening like I, have been on the cusp of wanting to just ask him what they're making for. Like years. This point same here, but I didn't want to want to overstep. Like I. Don't know if he wants to talk about. He'll talk about when they're when they're ready, but yeah. Not Expecting that. I think there's there like character names in Bugs I. Put Out Bert Mega Fig. Did they put out like Larry? Information, that I have. Snack, to island. While? There's like PC store pages up for this game. Now there are Explore the diverse biomass of snack tooth island to track down and unite the inhabitants of snacks Berg. Yeah, there's just a lot of really good character, names and stuff across the board and bugs and acts is I hope they went real hard on the animal, food portmanteau type stuff. Yeah, I, guess I guess I don't see any. Real information about the names of the individual bug snacks now that I now that.

"It's first person shooter with some light You'd have some units with you that you can order around. I don't even call it an artist because it's. It's like you have units with you. The basically give you additional abilities and you can. You can focus their fire, basically like the start of the game you, you're a hover bike and the bike can raise up and down, but always has to be over ground. You can't just go flying off wherever. And you straight around and shoot like you would in a first person shooter. And, then you've got a couple of guys with you. It'll have abilities like. Oh, here's a grenade that slows everything down if an enemy gets caught in it. Here's a concussion grenade. Little stunned people and there's literally two units at the Begin to units yeah yeah. The whole time you're on, you're on this graph bike the whole time. And you can like you know you have a Max heightened stuff, but raise and lower your altuve, and generally speaking. I feel like raising your altitude is just a really good way to be a sitting duck and get shot down. Yeah Yeah so so it becomes a mix of like you have your own gun. And it does okay damage budget so basic. Yeah, totally. And you have your other units that you can kinda. Hit right bumper around. And Order Your your other units to focus fire on target or move to a location. You'll need them to pop open like healing canisters, or whatever healing units on the on the ground or something. Yes, there's a skin mode which you can switch to. That shows you like interactive things in the combat arena, and it can be like healing canisters. That could be explosives. And, if any units go down, basically the you have to go, collect their corpse, and within thirty, or you'll lose, and they'll respond like a few seconds after you collect them and The the hover bike is really slow. It doesn't strafe like very fast like dodging incoming fire. It seems like you're just GonNa Kinda take hits in that game. Have a boost that. Get you out of a sticky situation, but like is now in such a big cool down, and and you are this big sitting duck of a target, so if you're kind of you know whatever you're doing. All the enemies are usually focused on on u unless you're sending your troops out, so it tries to achieve this mix of like you need to do your own dirty work, but also make sure that the units are coming in to draw fire or use the ability, so they can't shoot back and because you're like you're. Sort of fragile And I guess like it's cool that there are not a lot of games like this. And I got I got at least give it up for that like there's not. No one's making this kind of game anymore, but I think it's good or fun. I think I like it slightly more than you. So. Basically, my experience with the game was loaded up. To the tutorial went through that I was like okay. There's something here. This seems like an interesting concept. I'm going to get to work and then loaded the game and watched a twenty five minute cut scene that was like to its credit. Well voice acted and cinematic interesting, but it was very long, and they're telling me about lots of history and stuff like that. And then launch to be further into like a big kind of mass effect to style home around the you're talking to. People reminded me of agents of mayhem, which has never never what you WANNA see. Too but like way worse than the Normandy. And just it was just so much time before he actually started playing the game that I was getting a patient, and then that first level loaded, and it was just like okay. They're not really this is not like the. Shooting doesn't feel very good like I thought. We would be like control in the you know like thirty units at once, and like doing this big large scale, tactical battles, which might open their intention when they were designing the game, and then maybe they realized it will just didn't work or something, but. It's just a little plane I guess is the most thing I can say about it. Yeah I guess. Yeah. Disintegration is is Yeah Yeah you're right coming out of tutorial I feel like there was like an element of like okay like they're. They're trying to bring some very light artistes style stuff into this. They're going to be some units like, but but it ended up being like well. You can't hit switches yourself. You need to order your unit to go over there to open the door like Oh, you're just making this take longer. in a Lotta in a Lotta those types of cases, combat obviously is a little different but like. That sort of stuff, just it. It's made the game feel slow. And then in in combat the action. Doesn't feel good The shooting doesn't feel good ordering the units. It never. Seems to make good on the concept like I think there's. They had an idea. they wanted to try to blend these things and I think that they found like a decent control scheme for it, and and all that sort of stuff, but. It's the. Structure of the combat. It's kind of a wide open arena. Here's a here's a structure. You've got guys defending your rolling up on them very linear fashion like okay. Here's our next check next check point. We're GONNA fight. These guys and whatever.

"Is this just making me as much of a monster as? Fallen, right into their trap breath. You know it's pretty good at getting this stuff across okay I think some of his a little ominous I will say. Yeah some of it is a little bit blatantly like Oh, these people that you thought were sheer monsters, like maybe they had motivations of their own that are somewhat justifiable like some of that stuff can be maybe a little heavy handed at times. Okay, but. It is do WANNA. Play eventually it sounds like. They have succeeded in a lot of the areas that they set out to succeed in this I'm not the biggest fan of that style of Gameplay, nor am I emotionally stable enough to handle a game that crushing right now but like. I'll probably play at some point like try and burn a weekend sometime in the future. I think for for me. It's like you saying that the game plays pretty much the same as just like all right I. I didn't WanNa. Do that last time. Yeah, if you don't if you did not like that stuff. If, you do not take it, so there is another layer of new stuff on top of that, but it is very much that. Yeah. I could I feel like I could probably handle the story or you know could at least give it a shot, but. I the to some degree just as someone who kind of keeps tabs on video games in general like. If you like it at some point, it would be worth seeing what they've done just to. Yeah just to have a of some of the extremes that they go to here because like. I feel like I. Feel like people say that about every naughty dog game and every time I try with the possible exception of like uncharted, too. But I. Feel like every time I try to like see what people are seeing it and it's like yeah. No like their technology is second to none like they spent a lot of money. They spent a lot of hours making this really. fucking. Nice looking performance capture, and this really amazing stuff but like. I don't. Like playing games. Some of that stuff is interesting. Yeah, like Fr- from a step removed like they're really like they're moving boundaries on. You know storytelling performance capture whatever it is, it's been different from game to game. But boy. I don't think those games play very well. It's it's definitely not my my style of game, but I got through the the first one because of the spectacle down because of the cinematic qualities of. and. Those virtues I guess alone carried me through the game play, but. It is very much that linear style of storytelling game like for the part is just like. Hey, there's one path through everything like you were gonNA. Very interesting very well designed, but it is just one path. You know like you're going. More or less than a straight line and absorbing says I will say there is one spot near the beginning. Where do you play uncharted lost legacy? Here a little bit I. I messed with it started secret best uncharted game. Oh. that game has like some kind of quasi open world stuff early on, and they do the same thing here where you get to. Kind of get to a new city jeep. No you have a horse, which okay. kind of the same thing. Is the horses jeep? That I've seen. What's the horse's name Shimer GPO? Worst. How tall is this horse off the worst? Average size. Whatever chores average floor size Anyway you like you get to a new city where you're trying to get to you and like Kinda opens up. It's like a big kind of eight block by eight block region of the city, and you've got a little map that it tastes as you explore, and it's like Kinda, open world and kind of. Bomb Linear. But they do it once and then I'm. Just Kinda. Toss away the idea pretty close to what feels like the of the game, and they haven't done it again so weird, but it's a nice interlude. It's just a nice change of pace to going to explore a little bit. It's very well done. I think Lakesha credit as it is as well made. I think as any game that they have done so far. It's just a lot. To take. So. Know that going into. Like Ben Ben said I think if you're. If, you're not up for watching. A bunch of people be completely awful each other for hours at a time maybe. I'm on this podcast every week. I was GONNA say Twitter Dot Com. been through the fire on that. Yeah I'm I'm really curious to see what people people at large to say about this one out because. It's pretty extreme in some respects, but I am super year to finish it I like I like I said I've gotten to a point where I designed dying to go. See it through and just see where it's going, because they leave a lot of stuff up in the air away, that is. Hard to stop thinking about. Can you say how many hours you've? into. Less I looked at my save I was like twenty five or more okay, but but again I'm playing by playing it on hard like I scour every environment after every encounter for every fucking source I can find and like a lot of the encounters are taking me a long time because I'm trying to like how to perfect stealth my way through as much as I can. So I'm probably taken way longer to get through it than. Than you would on learn some. There's like six difficulty levels, and there's a ton of accessibility options in there, also the difficulty level. There's like a bunch of granular settings within each setting. It's like resource scarcity like enemy health your health. I. Forget what else and lighters Kinda like you can. You can tweet different aspects of the difficulty to kind of customize about want which is cool. was like the last couple was at the last couple of chartered games were there. Yeah, they've been going instead of capping Ex. We're GONNA. Let you hold acts like the just. The accessibility options seems like they've been getting better. Dot Com that they've been doing good jobs. Better better work, but that as time's gone. Yeah, there's there's a lot of stuff like that in there, so. yeah, I I I would love to hear what some some FIALAN staff have to say about this once it's. It's people had a chance to get through. This week Yes yes, Thursday Friday time for. The. Let's take a shower, Brad, you're! Heavy. My girlfriend is super invested in watching it. I will say like we've been playing it together and it's just out it's. It's kind of setting a tone around here. Yeah, that's how I play the first game yeah. With my with my girlfriend, watching me play it, and then she was pretty hooked. So. I don't know if this sounds more heavy ended. We're just. Utterly depressing, I don't know if. I don't know if she'll want to play with me. Give it shot. We'll see like I said it's. It's like two hours into the game before you get a sense of like what the tone of the game is. So. If you bounce off in that first couple of hours, you'll know. Well More grim video games or three came out. Oh, no, no, what do you have to do that dog? I haven't Paca oh. No, what to do, help pack.

"An enemy encounter on me right now, and then they do if that makes sense like I mean that sounds that the to with the narrative of the game was like they're kind of always in danger. You know you've gotTA. There's many external threats out air. Cool that they decided to wrap that up by making the player feel unsafe totally like it bleeds into. Kind of Meta mechanical layers of the game where like? Better what you are doing in the game where you think in any normal video game, you would be safe some some shit pop off in a way that you have to be prepared for which I found real interesting for just a design perspective. I think the storytelling is incredibly effective. It's really doing a good job of doing what it's doing. It's just what it's doing is is something that I feel like a good number of people might not be up for it now. But it sounds like people who are like excited and sold on this game and are ready for a bleak video game are probably going to enjoy what they're gonNA. Like again like depending on your personal preferences, like might overdose on it even if you're looking for that kind of thing. Like, it is. It is sort of again like a difference in tone and. Just the intent of the characters, because like the first name was not a nice game. Right like it's. Like. People are being bad to each other and stuff, but a lot of that first game was just about survival. A lot of kind of characters versus environment and characters versus like. You know arbitrary challenges. This is very much more like these people are all creating their own problems. You know that's like. Failure to restrained themselves from their. Urges. Is the biggest problem in this game if that makes sense. So just lust for vengeance, and like when I went to that event last last year they gave the presentation where there's like we wanted to make a revenge story, and I was like. Oh, great, so like every other video game ever made. But This one. This one really gotta hits you in the Gut with like. Just the savage acts that are being committed, and then the responses to those and the response of ad, and it's just like again. It just feels like this bottomless spiral. That there is no escaping from. It's it's rough. Is it good, or is it just rough? From what you've seen like. I mean I don't mean to ask. Are you enjoying it, but like I guess what I'm trying to get at is like. Is it. Is it good, are you? Won't. Have not have not been able to stop playing it. I will say that okay. I hit a point. I thought the first like ninety minutes of the game is really slow. And I'm just like. If I need more of this. And then things go sideways, and then from that point on. I have not been able to stop like it. Okay. But again like I'm not going to say, that's because of purely been enjoying it the whole time. I do feel pressing. Urge to see where it's going. Like I it. It pulls you along for sure okay. That's even when you're not like. Some of this is uncomfortable. But like you know they're storytelling, technique is very well honed at this point. It's nothing like. Mind, blowing route. Revolutionary. If you've watched like any cable drama, it's not like they're redefining the rules of video game, storytelling or something. It's just very well well worn techniques, but they're using them really well. So Yeah I. I have an idea of the point is trying to get across where it's going but I can't say for sure until I. Get to the end which I. Think will be soon. And there's no multiplayer right. They took that out The first game ship with multiplayer. They add that I wanna say it did because I think that was. When the game came out? I think I played the multiplayer for awhile and are tried to play. The single player really really didn't like it. fucked around the multiplayer for a while and said wow, this has some really neat ideas. With like the camp and the survivors, and and that sort of stuff, right and then. Yeah I. Actually just looking Gameplay at all so that didn't you know I didn't stick around. For much of that either. At least a really cool idea for whatever reason I only remember, the multi player in the remastered like the PS four version. Maybe, it did have it at launch I forget, but. Like the stealth action is good. You know like I feel like it's. It's not like metal gear solid. Five level, which I think is probably my favorite self game ever, but I do like Stealth Action Games like this. You know this has got some pretty tense moments of like you know grabbing an enemy dragging behind a column, so that the other enemy that's approaching. You can't catch you and stuff like that. They use a lot of really good audio cues to let you know when you're about to be spotted and stuff like that leads to a lot of really frantic like seedier pants kind of saves. been pretty. Precise buying. Got Like I I am enjoying the game play but but. It's not anything like mind blowing special without the propulsion of the story pushing you long. Ago. Man I don't know like. Who here based on what I've just said is like itching to play this game. I can't say that I. Am I don't just given current events and just right where we are in the world. Right like I don't know if I could deal with that kind of. LIKE WAIT LOSS! There's there's just really heavy. There's just a nonstop like viciousness just about everything that's happening in. is any of it Cathartic at all, or is it just like mostly just like eating away at you kind of Brad like in a way that go back and forth, and maybe that's the games credit the like. When some bad stuff happens like you want to see, vengeance exacted right Brian like the closer you get to that the more you think about like..

There are much more violent games out there. has any of it felt satisfying? But no, it's not like that it's like it's the. Feel like it's I. Guess That's been a lot of the discussions. Since reviews hit is like. Does the violence feel like it's actually there to good effect, and like serves a purpose is definitely serving a purpose. Yes, I I had I made a point of not reading reviews and stuff that have come out so far, but. It is it's more like the stuff that is hard to sit with I. Think is is less the depiction of the actual violence mortgages, the intent of the characters. Like the display maliciousness! Like hatred like it's just. It's definitely speaking to like a very base level just like human tendency toward violence. Toward people that have you know, wrongdoer whatever yeah Lake! It's a hard thing to describe like okay. You know the classic Nathan Drake, problem. Yet, he murders billion dudes like at the end of the game. He says a one liner the is. The thing we've always talked about where he's like level Scoundrel who's also mass murderer right? Yeah! I don't know if this was intentional or not, but I feel like they finally resolved that dissonance. By, making like instead of instead of murdering hundreds of people being counter to the aims of the characters. Murdering, hundreds people is consistent with the names of the characters. It's like yes, you are absolutely you are. You are finally that piece of shit through and through right, and it's definitely a story. Where pretty deep into it I? Think I'm hopefully going to finish it in the next night or two, but it's. Like nobody comes off as a particularly good person in this thing like. Everybody's got. Some degree of Lake, justifiable reasons for what they're doing, but it's slake hard to. It's hard to see anybody purely sympathetic character in this game. Now! It's a lot to take in right now. I guess it's hard to say without you. Having finished it, but if everyone is a piece of shit, does it feel like the game is actually saying anything other than WELP? Everyone's a piece of shit. I mean definitely it's as far as I can tell like again. We'll see where it goes from whatever everything I've seen. It takes a very like overtly condemnatory tone. Word, what's happening like like you know? In in some respects, it's like pretty blatant. I think about like. Pay Like this shit just spiraled out of control. Answering violence with more violence is. You know. It's good for and makes the whole world blind right? That kind of thing like it is very much like hey, like this is a bottomless spiral. From which there's no escape is the way it is playing out so far so ripped from the headlines. That kind of yeah. If they're. Not, not, remotely like I have come away from the game two or three times just feeling kind of like unsettled just generally like. kind of gross feeling in my stomach, not not enough I, mean there are some there are some very lakes gratuitously violent scenes. There's not a couple in particular the world to watch like it's incredibly well acted like the. Performance capture like their production techniques for capturing this kind of stuff are so mature at this point that like. I think that stuff reads very realistically. Enough that it's kind of bothersome to watch in some cases but it's real good but again it's like less of a it's less of an over Gore thing and more of a just like like everybody just wants to fucking kill each other here. and. Like you kind of understand why they'll feel that way, but still like. I I have a question, how is the video game part of it? It more of that play the first game like it is it is it is absolutely that exact same kind of third. Person Stealth Action Game. like it has third person shooting, but it is. Kind of one toe in a resource management survival type game like you have to scrounge resources and craft stuff like you never have more than. You rarely have more than single digit bullets for any gun. Okay, this is a good way to sum it up I think. You feel like you're ever. Are the crafting resources also scarce, or is it really just kind of pay? Is it limiting you on a per encounter basis more or less because you know, it's like at the end of every encounter you like now. I can craft bullets again. So I I made a I made A. Possibly, questionable decision in case I end up viewing this game and I'm playing it on hard because. That's how i. that's what you always do I understand always third, not even. GonNa. There's not even a trophy for difficulty as far as I have seen in this game, but that's how I ended up enjoying the first game because I really bounce off the first game at first I just didn't think it was that interesting I mean didn't. Play, much the first game I played under it. Yeah so I supervise management was was tied to difficulty level right so like I I P- I started that game I started the first game, and just Kinda bounced off of it and put it down for like six months, and then game of the was coming up and like I should give that another shot, and I saw a bunch of people saying like. Hey, if you play this on heart, come in turns into like A. Like pre grueling like resource management, challenge of you really don't have much to work with and like. That kind of it basically creates another decision point in every encounter of like every bullet. I shoot here every health pack. I use as like significantly ratcheting down what I have to work with. You have to make every single action count, and that's what I ended up doing here and. So. I can't speak to what it's like normal but Why did you definitely you're finding more stuff to replenish your your stock? But it's not. It's not guaranteed by any means not abundance right? Yeah, okay, yeah, so so I mean. It is very much that game again like they've built on all that stuff. There's a couple of new weapons. There's a couple types like there's some new crafting inability options, but very much that again. They pulled. Don't want to ruin any surprises. They pull some interesting tricks around like. The ways that they surprise you with encounters in some spots if that makes sense. Like again like loud giving away the surprise. It's like things about video games where you think like. Okay. Surely they wouldn't spring..

"In Times of emergency matters in fact I would tell all of you. I I think every single station that broadcast on if you tell your smart device to listen to the station and give the call letters you'll get it You know as a matter of fact the only one I know it doesn't work for as WSB RADIO IN ATLANTA With with WSB in Atlanta which is one of the big talk stations of the nation Someone has set up an Internet streaming service W. S. E. B. and if you tell a Seri- I'm with an apple device if you tell Siri to listen to WSB it actually pulls up this Internet streaming service instead of instead of the station but for the rest of them wherever you are say. Hey Hey dingus. Or whatever the act of Alexa whatever Listen to the radio chagall letters and you can stream over your smart device. So if you're if you're home and you wouldn't listen to uptodate information. You can do that with a podcast. You can't do that. And so there's relevance and I don't just say this to to tout the local radio station you're listening to but it definitely is a difference compared to a podcasts and podcasts are down because people listen to podcasts on their way into work your community into. Atlanta. Let's say you're you're lake oconee and you're commuting in to Atlanta to go to work as opposed to state in your Gorgeous Lake House at Riddle's plantation and you're listening to a podcast and that's all well and good but it's not necessarily timely information. This is all timely information. The station that you're listening to speaking of Lake Oconee. Have Y'all seen the story was in the JC And I saw it in several local papers around the state as well The mass gathering of people out on the lake. This Lake Lanier Lake oconee had massive crowds on the lakes just like in Atlanta. There were massive crowds of people. Now a Lotta people are. The governor was people to socially distance and yet they're huge crowds gathered on boats. Now I'm kind of jealous 'cause I I'm supposed to be on spring break. I'm not even supposed to be here this week and yet I'm here because of this virus and I thought you know maybe I'll take the kids out to lake oconee. We could stay at Reynolds plantation but apparently either the Ritz isn't taking vacate taking Reservations or their shutdown. So there's no taking the kids to stay in one of their little cottages on the lake Because there's just no there there and is so so there's no escape for me but apparently a lot of people have done it. They've gone out to lake oconee and they've crowded the lake Lake Sinclair and Lake Lanier as well and the police. Now we're thinking they're going to have to patrol and break up large crowds of people because people aren't taking it as seriously as they need an. Can WE BE HONEST? Can I be honest for just a minute with you? All live talked about for three weeks. Is this freak virus and I am tired of talking about it and I have to talk about it because it's the new story. It is the news of the day. It is a contagious virus. Three percent of the people who get it in Georgia are dying of it and it is highly contagious. More contagious than the flu. And there is a large amount of disinformation misinformation. Out there about it. I I get emails all the time. The models wrong scientists raw. The doctors are wrong. It's all fake. It's all about attacking the president Which begs the question of? Why is the president taking it so seriously? A wire his advisors taking it seriously they say one hundred thousand people dead. That's from the White House. Why are they doing this? If it's no big deal but then look at the data. Hey Siri how many people are in Georgia? I just curious the state of Georgia a population of how many people ten million two hundred fourteen thousand eight hundred sixty people in two thousand fifteen to Syria. So so let's let's do ten million five hundred thousand people and then you look at the data. There are only two thousand six hundred eighty three people in the state of Georgia. Two thousand six hundred eighty three people instead of Georgia a population of ten point. Five million people is it really that bad. I I understand why people are looking at this and thinking is really what are the odds that I'm GonNa get it. You're playing the odds. But but here's here's the issue that you gotta understand is it's not about getting the virus. What we know is that twenty percent of the people who get the virus wind up in the hospital and three percent of people get the virus die. It's not even really about you die. They're only if the two thousand six hundred eighty three cases. Only eighty-three of died. That's just three percent and that's three percent of two thousand eight hundred twenty two thousand six hundred eighty three not three percent of ten point five million people in Georgia but the problem is hospital resources. You go out to lake oconee. The they've got a lot of people who live out of Lake oconee now. Greene County are gorgeous. Here I would kill the out there right now but they don't have a massive healthcare facility. There they got a nice hospital in the area but they don't have a massive when you go to make in. They've got an calcium hospital and northside calcium. They got the Medical Center. They got big hospitals you go to Atlanta. They got multiple Noonan because but they they have a certain number of beds and the problem with this virus is not that everybody's going to get it. It's not that even twenty five percent of the public is GonNa get it. The problem. Is that enough. People are going to get it. If we spread it that there will be more people who need hospitalization. Their hospital beds. That's why you gotta stay home. So when you hear. The numbers intuitively. It doesn't make sense. Why are we sheltering in place? When only two thousand six hundred people have this out of a population of ten point. Five million people state. The problem is that because so many people who get it wind up meeting the hospital that if it does spread like the seasonal flu word spread if we did nothing then we would max out. Her Hospital. Capacity of the state and a lot of people who need critical care would be able to get it because the hospitals would be full of people with virus. That's why we're doing it and that's why you need to stay home and if you're on the Lake One. I'm jealous in two. Don't have a large crowd just a reminder. If you text the word dated three three seven seven seven going to text you back I'M NOT GONNA ask for email address or anything. I'm just going to send you a text back and it's going to be to a newsletter that I'm compiling relevant leaks That you're GONNA WANNA see It's divided into sections. First Section is virus tracking. It has the data from Johns Hopkins University Medical Centers the State of Georgia numbers. It's got the. Us specific spreadsheet on testing and transmission. Deaths it's got the projection models for each state. You can see. It's got the stimulus plan. Data there's a handy info from Senator Rubio's Office for individuals and nonprofits there's the Chamber of Commerce Primer for small businesses. And how you can get loans that convert to grants if you keep payroll and there's the CNN overview of what's all in the stimulus. There's the small business administration disaster long page There's the comparison between the flu and Cova. Nineteen for all your friends who still think this is just the common cold or flu others. A great comparison put together by the advocate. The Big Louisiana newspaper and and the New Orleans newspaper. And there's The New York Times link that has the lockdown and limitations by state so you can click on George on the map and see which cities are locked down completely in Georgia's kind of confusing because some municipalities aren't actually doing lockdown. But they're closing nonessential businesses and it's amazing to see which businesses have decided that they are essential businesses and staying open But you can get all of this by texting data to three three seven seven seven And I'll send you back that link. I would just keep that link saved because I'M GONNA keep updating that as as other links come in I may even have to put in the sour dough starter recipe for those of you so I decided to start doing a sour dough start. I've wanted to do one for a while now And finally decided I'm not going on spring break. I'm staying home. I'm doing radio. The kids are off but I want to bake bread so might as well and have you heard. There's actually a huge shortage of yeast and flour at the grocery store. Now because of everyone decided they want to try bed breaking bed. Break is bread baking. So I'm not alone. Ped- breaking story in their to over this virus. But we won't worry about the future quarantines of America nonetheless. I have a homework assignment for all of you. If it's age appropriate over the age of eighteen and you have net flicks. We need to watch this tiger. Joe Show because I've decided I need to watch it so I can actually talk about it because Ev. Apparently ninety percent of the country is watching the show. And I I don't want to be in the ten percent. We need to find common ground here across partisan lines. So I'm GonNa Watch this Tiger Joe Documentary on that flicks and those of you. Who can and want to? You should watches well and we're going to discuss this show because it's something other than the virus to talk about and we gotta find not virus stuff to talk about.

I like Chuck I do not cast him as the guy who suggested there's blood on the presidency and they're actually been Democrats out there. There've been partisan Democrats say the president has blood on his hands and he threw it out to get Biden's take on it and Biden says no in other words Biden is being more reasonable than Nancy. Pelosi who said the president has blood on his hands. That's where that comes from Pelosi. Doing that in Biden is rebuking. Nancy Pelosi in the answer and by the way that makes the Democrats mad they want Joe Biden to be out there beating up the president on a daily basis being an attack. Doggies the president. But that's not how Joe Biden is whether you liked by not biting in the past has taken positions of standing with the administration in times of crisis whether it was Ronald Reagan or George H W Bush or Bill Clinton or George W Bush or Barack Obama.

"Let me first explain what happened on Friday for those you're listening. I got emails from a bunch of listeners. Say Why am I hearing Thursday against so I cannot go to my radio studio. Given the virus situation we are in in home confinement. by and large The governor my wife qualifies as part of the shelter in place situation. So I can't leave the house either So broadcasting for Holman. I've got a special connection between my home and my radio studio so I can be home in a studio and it sounds as you would not know if I didn't tell you I wasn't in a radio studio because this connection I have well some. How or another the phone company. Got a disconnect order on Thursday afternoon after the show is over and they disconnected the line Thursday afternoon and it was an error and no one knows how the disconnect order wound up but they couldn't get it turned back on In time for the show on Friday they actually showed up at the house. Friday morning. thinking that it was the the phone company guys did the. At and T. Guy showed up at the house at eight fifteen to try to get me on air by nine o'clock and they couldn't figure out what was going on. They spend an hour testing every part of the line and only after spending an hour and realized that. There's nothing wrong with line. Did they realize a disconnect order had been filed and the computer had turned the line off so it took them until some time Friday afternoon around three o'clock before the line was turned back on. Now I was able to overnight special equipment But the equipment had a bug in it and just he was a series of unfortunate errors And now I'm back thankfully but man. What a mess it was. It was so aggravating And very thankful for the two guys from eighteen t who came out and and were able to get everything up and running again. Just this is. This is life in quarantine America. I suppose now the phone number here if you want to be part of the program four Oh for a note wrong number Han. WanNa give you my cell phone number eight seven seven nine seven Eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. The president just spent an hour with Fox and friends. It was a phone conversation with them and he said something that is already causing a reporter to lose their minds What the president said is that the We were going to have to point to a minimum of two point two million deaths and thanks to what he's done we will have death unfortunately but not nearly as many deaths as what everyone had said this is causing a medium meltdown. This morning In the press on social media among reporters now everyone who listens to this show is aware of the projection. I have explained it and let me walk through it again because there is some wilful obfuscation. Going on among people trying to undermine the projections and I want to explain the projections to you because their models in their projections. And when you bring them up people say oh you're scaring people you're needlessly scary people know you need to understand the date? I'm assuming you're all big boys and girls and we can all understand this because I do need to break this down for you. The reason that world governments reacted the way they reacted is in large part because of an imperial college simulation that put in all the variables and determined that in the United States. There would be four million deaths if we did absolutely nothing two point two million deaths from the virus and the reason that they came up with this is if you presume at the time they were presuming. It was a transmission rate of one person affects two point. Three people is actually one person to fix three people. We now know that. There's no natural immunity. Everyone alive who comes into contact with the virus tends to get the virus because Lack of natural immunity. We actually still don't understand why some people come into contact with the don't get it given that. No one has natural immunity. There are things about this virus. We don't understand but based on what we do. Understand one person infects up to three people and It is highly contagious. It survives in the wild longer than the flu. Does it takes longer for the symptoms to show up and you're contagious before you actually see signs of the symptoms so it makes it easier for you to come into contact with other people without having self isolated all those things if we treated this like the flu and we just let it run rampant And we did nothing. We went about our lives. Their projections were that Yeah one hundred hundred fifty million Americans would get it Because the flu infix sixty million Americans to forty to sixty million Americans and this we know the contagion rate is higher than the blue. So that's what it would if we did nothing and again this is all if we did nothing if we just about our daily lives with people getting sick and and we didn't do anything that's the scenario that would play out. And as a result we know. The mortality rate is about three percent globally. So you do the math. Then you come up with two million people dead will then you also know that hospitals would be maxed out and so there would be people who need healthcare who can't get it because the hospitals are full. So you had those people in the people who have a heart attack. A blood clot. People have cancer. The people who who break a leg the people who are bleeding out all all sorts of things you all those in the people who get the regular flu or pneumonia need hospitalization and can't because the hospitals are full and that's where you come up with essentially the population the size of Los Angeles would die you. You do very basic minimization stuff keeps sick people at home and keep the elderly at home. You still wind up with about a million people dead. Those are the projections and there are a lot of people willfully trying to undermine those in castile those projections and by the way. They're not in dispute with anybody. Doctor Pal she doubt Dr Burks the president. Nobody disputes those projections. What what what is disputed? However is the media's been hanging their hat on those projections as this is. What's going to happen when that's not what's going to happen? It's not what's going to happen. Because the world responded. And and so Neil Ferguson. Who was the author of the paper and ran the simulation who himself by the way Got Cove? Nineteen pointed out that the reason they've revised down everything so dramatically is because they factored in now. What happens when every locks down? What happens when people shelter in place? What happens when people don't venture outside in guess what the model changes dramatically as they said it would originally and they're still projecting upwards of one hundred thousand deaths in the United States but no one is saying except the press. No one is saying that millions of people are going to die. What the model said. And what the experts say and what I've been trying to relate to you and by the way I get hate mail on a daily basis for talking about this from people saying needlessly scaring everyone and I'm not trying to scare anyone and I I realize people just hear what they want to hear and they wanna be mad at something so they're mad at me. What is the point of give you the numbers to show you if we treated this like the flu and we did absolutely nothing do what we don't shut down the country for the flu? We all go about our business. You hear this now. Let's just not shut down the country. Just keep people had the flu at home. Keep the people have this at home and everybody go about their business and the problem. Is this the model shows you? What would happen if we did that because again? No one has natural immunity to this virus and we know that the death rate is one to three percent much higher than the blue. And so when you go home and when you when you stay at home when you shelter in place guess what happens. The virus doesn't spread if you stay in your house and you don't let people come in. Who might be infected? You don't get sick. They can't the people who are can't spread it and the numbers. Dramatically change in fact in Washington State. That had the massive original spike. The numbers have they fallen off. Dramatically Washington state is coming through this now contrast that with New York City where New York City they didn't do things in fact in Newark City up until the week. Before Saint Patrick's Day New York City officials were still encouraging people to go out and have a good time drink and ride the subway in mingled together even though by then we knew it was spreading socially in New York City is an absolute disaster. You have studied contrast between Washington state that took it seriously and sheltered in place in New York City. That did not in the media is trying to blame the president but this is happening this morning and I got to tell you. There's a part of me that finds this really funny. I was actually laughing about it when I saw it beginning to explode this morning. In fact while I'm here on the fly with you Because I love you I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do this on the fly. See if I can find the audio. I'm not sure it's been listed yet. I have a special program I can get into Where I can try to find the audio of these things. Let's see Let's see no no. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah here it is. It's already up. Yeah this this is. This is a clip from Fox and friends. This is the president's interview. It happened just a short time ago. And listen to this because this is what's driving the media crazy today this week. You know Mr President. Today is Monday this weekend. Coming up on okay. Today is March thirtieth coming up on Wednesday. It's GonNa be April first and this really is a make or break week Mr President. Because you know a lot of businesses are GONNA have to say okay The wrenches still can do. Am I going to be able to pay the rent? And we're going to have to talk to the landlord. Who am I going to have to lay off? Who am I going to be able to keep because this is such a make or break week for the people looking at. I know yesterday you were talking about the importance of. We're GONNA get through this altogether but there are a lot of people who are worried about their finances right now. Well I agree and Nobody more worried than me for the whole country and look. I think like this has never happened to. We have the best economy in the history of our country by far. We've had the best employment numbers we've ever had with African Americans Asian Americans with Hispanic America's everybody the best diverted a hundred times. We had the best we've ever had and then one day they said by the way there's a virus coming in and everyone's saying what's that all about and in one day we had to shut it down and by the way you. I Dunno if you so yesterday the question. I've been asking a lot of people and asking if we didn't shut it down because I used to say a lot of people said well could you just have kept it going. You know like the flu like a bad case of the flu really bad case and the answer came in yesterday through Dr Chee and through. Deborah burks the educate -ment. If we did that in other words if we just kept a business as usual didn't do anything to stop it or impede. It could could have been two point. Two million people could have died. Two point two million people would have been between one point six. They say I mean they showed you the the numbers one point six and two point. Two million people could have been more than that..
