"petrie" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"You're back with the briefing on monocle 24. As we've been discussing tomorrow, marks the one year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Perhaps one of the most pressing questions will be how to rebuild Ukraine as civilians try to reestablish their lives. In part four of our Ukraine series, Monica's Helsinki correspondent Petrie burts off, sat down with the chief economist, I was from the European bank for reconstruction and development, and began by asking about the key challenges that Ukraine faces as it sets up to rebuild its war ravaged infrastructure and connection of Ukraine. The first one is stable peace, stable resolution to the conflict. The second one is institutional improvement in Ukraine. And the third one is money. The third one is the easiest to resolve because the international community stands ready to support Ukraine. I'm also optimistic about the second ingredient institutions because the prospect of EU accession provides an opportunity for Ukraine to get on this reform path and improve the quality of its governance. So the most challenging ingredient is finding a stable solution to the conflict. If we look at the work that the bankit that you represent does, give us a picture of how you support Ukrainian businesses and the authorities and help the business community in the country to thrive.

"Well, doctor, that was not only a swell story, but I really learned something. Oh, good, good, good, mister bartel, and just what did you learn? Well, this fellow grows the painter. I know this must sound stupid to you, but until you mentioned his name, I'd never heard of him before. His name to me. I've never heard him farther. Then we'll never learn about the good things in this world, unless somebody tells us. Exactly. That's the way I feel about petry one. Wait a minute. Now here's the way I look at it. There are thousands of people who know about Petri wine and love it, right? It is. But even though it's a wonderful wine, there must be some people who don't know about it. So I tell them about it. And I tell them about the Petri family and how they've been making wine for generations and how they've been handing on down from father to son, father to son, the fine art of turning luscious grapes into delicious one. Yeah, that's the one I tell them at the name Petri on a bottle of wine is the personal assurance of the Petrie family that every drop of wine in that bottle is good wine, well that's all you have to know. So what adds up to this? If you want to find wine for any occasion, you want a pet rewind. Because Petri took time to bring you

"We now return to St. John of the cross, master of contemplation with father Donald haggerty. It goes back to what we were talking with the aesthetical life, but in this purification of the will for love of loan and reminded of the holy role of saint Benedict, where the call is you have what you need. Is this what you need? And to really examine that, not to have more, you know, to be able to make sure that you have enough. But it's always what you need. And if I'm not mistaken, mother Greece was that in a very real way, as things came in, you made sure you got it out to the poor right away. You didn't try to accumulate things that you were too worried to store up for another day, but use what you have and give and retain only what you need. Yeah, mother Theresa is. I actually, as you bring her up, I was with Jan Petrie, she and Jan Peter and her sister and Petrie did these documentaries on Mother Teresa in the mid 1980s. And they're really very profoundly well done films on Mother Teresa. The second one includes her funeral and they had filmed much of Mother Teresa also interviews with her in that mid 1980s period. Some other Teresa then was in her early 70s to mid 70s. And she's digitizing all of this material to keep it safe for posterity. So I was in her office where she's keeping all of this downtown Manhattan and wanted this blast. So I went down there last week and showed she showed some of the old clips of these interviews with militarism and I bring this up because mother trees at one point will say, you know, how free we are with our vow of poverty. You know, it really does release a person not to have to worry about, you know, things. And that's surrender of oneself to just, you know, keeping one's possessions at a, in their case, at a very minimal level. You know, it's true for all of us. If we are, I mean, I know I like books. I like to have great interest in books and I do buy books. My excuse is that can aid in some matter, at least me keeps me busy in my in the hours that I do have freedom. And it can be beneficial for the work as a priest. But there could be other things that priests easily we can get caught up just as people in the world and material things. And I do think that's a danger that we're finding things that prop us up or in some manner become accessories to our life, and then that becomes part of our identity. In our own, if we look in the mirror, we associate that with our identity, and that's not really what God sees or what he looks for from our life. So the purification of the will is for love alone. That's a phrase that is an examination for all of us to do things that and to try not to get caught by things that are going to limit the life of love in our lives. So if things are for the sake of love, then it's good. If poverty is for love, then that's good. If we're giving away for love, that's good. But if it hinders us in the life of love, then that could be, it should be rethought in some manner. You have erode in the perfection of the will for love alone in the chapter in St. John of the cross.
"petrie" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Was he didn't play the game in a way they wanted him to, but they liked the wrong skill set and they thought they'd work with him and it just for whatever reason never connected. He never changed the way he played. I'd be worried about the same thing with carlotta especially if you're going to take him in the first round. Yeah, with you on that as well. Okay. More positionless defense here in the secondary. We've talked a lot about Dax hill. We haven't talked a ton about Jalen Petrie. If there is one guy out of this safety nickel group that has a better eye for the football or just knows for the football, it's Jalen Petrie. That guy's always around the ball. He's always on the fit in the run game. He's always around the football in the past game. You see him on tape and he drops in his own coverage and he covers like three guys on one rep, right? Like he's sifting through the processing and the reads of the quarterback and taking away. I've heard a lot of Buddha baker comps. I think there is a little bit of honey badger in his game as well, but he's totally positionless. He's a nickel safety, right? He's a guy that's going to play over this. He's going to guide that's going to play a depth deep but he's not going to play on the outside a ton. So similar to Dax hill, I think in that category, what do you think about Jalen Petrie? If the Patriots are that's full blown, we're playing zone and we're going position list, right? Like that's really going in that direction. Yeah, so to get kind of college football nerd out a little bit here. I like the idea of getting a safety from the big 12 that doesn't mean I think the only good safety are from the big 12 or every big 12 safety is good, but that conference, it's all very checked down or chuck, right? You're either throwing it to the running back underneath or you're throwing the ball in a go route. And the NFL is kind of becoming more of that way. I think the AFC east is down developing into a lot of that sort of football. So I think Petrie's been tested in a lot of ways. He's going to get tested in the NFL. I think that's good. Again, if they're going to go positionless, I love it. I don't love him as a replacement for Devin mccordy. I don't love him as the ideas to have him play corner. If they're going to, they want a guy. If they want a guy they can, but that's not maximized. Then take a slot corner, right? Yeah. That's going to take Marcus Jones. Unless you're going to move him. I said this when they signed Jalen mills, right? The way to maximize that signing was to move them all over the defense and not give him a position. I feel kind of the same about jaylen Petrie unless you're really going to use them as that chess piece and they have four or 5 guys that can do that at this point..

Executive of sustainability consultancy twenty fifty and hannah pang head of marketing an advocacy and sustainability consultancy for tara to unpack fashions role in slowing global warming. Here's michael cichowski. Leyla petrie and hannah pang inside passion michael. I'd like to start with you and get a little bit meta. Why is this fashion problem solve. I mean let's say i'm nike or gucci. You look around. And i say i sell clothes. Not making cars not operating a coal fire our plant. Why do i need to be thinking about the surgeon. You sure Thank you brian so I think it's important to note that It's humanities problem solve and fashion as one sector on that needs to be carbonized. Serve regardless of what Sector you find yourself in. We know that we have to reduce emissions vary significantly between now and twenty thirty and then on the way to twenty fifty and so Roughly reducing emissions by half by twenty thirty And and that's by twenty fifty There are a number of estimates of fashions greenhouse gas look rinse We can talk about this in a bit more detail. The data is not ideal But we do know that fashion does have a significant carbon footprint and as with other sectors much reduced that and so You know we know the effects and we. We know the predictions of where we're going if we keep on their business as usual trajectory And so fashion because of because of its impacts and also because it seeing the impacts of climate already happening in the supply chain in particular in places where the impacts of climate are being are happening We know that it's critical. Issue the sector to address. Thank you and love to get into the data question in a little bit on this more than any issue. We're talking about today. Hear a lot about the need for collective action for the industry to work together and you've been involved in. Some of the industry's biggest efforts on front in to tell us how that's going. I how much progress has been made in. Also why some necessary for brands you think of this as an industry problems New problems grand. I mean i think fundamentally this is a problem which no individual company consult when his i you know we have all sorts of invading intractable issues around infrastructure around incentives around policy. No-one acting really occurred within that system without being affected by it so all these brands have supply chains. Good three targets that are also dependent on And really what we realized.

"Kerry Price is halfway through. Now at age, thirty-three just turned thirty-three like last month at his current state. He's only halfway through making 10 and 1/2 million dollars a year off. Good for him, he's got what he's got the bag but also you can't fire a guy after they take you to the Stanley Cup finals. I mean it's just horrible Optics know it's just but it's tough especially now because with covid-19 up with what that's done for League salary cap. We don't know what that's going to be. He's got a, a full no-movement Clause through him being thirty-eight years old making 10 and 1/2 million dollars a year, which is a substantial number, but some point to pull them down, it may not be now, but, I mean, it might be now like, and that's and it's tough to say that off of them during the Stanley Cup. Like, it's weird. Sounds weird. To say, I understand that well, he might next year though. But at some point, you're going to need some more guys. Really this roster is not enough and when he's making 15% of your Jeep hit. It's problematic. Yeah, it's an albatross of a contract I think. I think we could very likely see it only get worse and again 38 years old is what they're paying him. You compared to juice, press got the Cowboys quarterback in the NFL, has the guy who's very good, but you still need to get him help. And I would argue these massively overpaid. It's, it's a guy who despite his value clearly, he's obviously, if you overpay a really good player, you can't give them help. Therefore, you can't win as much. I mean, you do still crippled your team, even if he's a good player. Yeah they've sent a couple of bad contracts. They they they took on Montreal, Shea Weber's is one of their defenseman, one of their benefits when he's he's I think Petrie's our best defenseman but he's a good player and he's on a he's making almost eight million dollars in his cap hit. He's 36 right now. Oh boy, they're paying him. Almost eight million jobs. Like in fairness, they, they went on a run like, I guess if you're the GM or like, well we risked it for the biscuit, we didn't win at all. But you feel kind of good to like hey you can justify it by saying we went on a run, right? Yeah for sure and Iraq. Now you on the consequently those consequences that you're not paying between price and Weber, you're paying two guys who are see them out of your salary. They said they're those two guys alone are making over a quarter, the salary cap off and they're 33 and 36. When so Shea Weber he actually signed this is another conversation about cap, he signed a 14 year 100,000 Ten million dollar deal with Nashville. This was back before they were caps on term and teams did this because they thought, if they, if they signed such a big contract, just kept hitting, the NHL is wage is, you know, the number divided by the years. It's really easy. It's that's your cap. And it's 210 / 14 that 7.8 and change. That's your yearly, cap hit. So teams are thinking, okay? What if we just signed Guys, these wage is ludicrous deals that they're going to retire before they get to the end of. So we can bring our yearly cap hit down. And the player says wait up. So making a ton of money. Sounds good and I'm doing a fun game and so it sounds good like you can sign me. Send me for 30 years, find whatever bring number down. It only helps the team if we do that. Yeah, so like when you use you pay them less money in the short-term to extend it out like crazy idea in the middle of Bobby Bonilla. Yeah, exactly..

Easy the lunar calendar in some parts of the country wherever there is matriarch there will be lunar calendar wherever there is petrie arche there. There is what is called looney solar calendar which is a combination of lunar cycles and so cycles why this calendar is important is today. We're looking at calendar is just a number game of measuring how many days in amman many days in a year or how many years our life like this here we are not looking at calendar as just a numerical record of things but we are looking at it as how we experienced the calendar within ourselves. How the body responds to it at different times are calling lee Traditions practices rituals were crafted. So that in those times you can make the best use of what is around you in the form of vert energy in the form of hurts Trajectory how it is mowing how it's Northern face of the where it is pointed towards its closeness to the sun. All these things are taken into effect as to what sort of practices you do when i see how to yoga the sun and moon. Well this four thousand. Three hundred fifty. Six days is considered as one solar cycle. This is segmented in different ways for different people for households it segmented one way for the yogis segment segmented different ways for six one way and people were do regular worldly life another way because their bodies are gone and they need to function differently. Accordingly calendar is used depending upon the moon phases and our the planet's position in relation to the sun. Well as we know the mon is constantly showing only one face to us. it is. It's rotation is synchronized with planet's rotation. So we're seeing only one phase of the moon. This also is significant because the way the moon response are the way the planet response to the moon. There are very wonderful stories. How they're always looking at each of the the more never turns its back up on the planet. The day moon turns. Its back on us. We're finished in case the moon turns its back on us that means human reproductive system will go away and it's over that means when the moon's rotation goes beyond a certain certain radii are certain circumference rather than it will start showing other face to you when it shows the other face that means the end of humanity has come in a few years it will go down so what impact it has on a daily basis. Well it is not the moonlight alone. It is a whole today. People are talking inside victims of electrical chargers electromagnetic impact and other things. Well i don't want to talk about it.

"Bad news. The good news is you're scoreless through almost eight minutes, much better than you were in Game three. The bad news is you don't have a shot on goal. What There's not. They haven't done one thing. That will get this crowd to applaud anything except keep the puck out of the net. It has been all Tampa Bay and all four lines for Tampa Bay have had scoring chances. Shots. Eight. Nothing in favor of the Lightning. They lead the series three games tonight. Phillip Danault puts it on right wing, and he had Gallagher, who had a little step, but he couldn't handle the pass cleanly. Peels out of the corner with it now gives it to Tyler to pull from a bad angle, block it away by Vasilevskiy, his first save of the hockey game. And it comes eight minutes in now jumping into the rush the other way. It's Hedman, The Norris Trophy winner sends it across. You want a con Smyth last season as the lightning are looking for back to back cups, he goes behind the net. Now in front, Andre Palat headed swatted away by Philip to know and it will slowly go back into the Tampa zone, not far enough for icing. Edmund back to collect it. He leads all defenseman scoring in the Stanley Cup playoffs past rocketed ahead went off the leg of Stamkos and Petri wheels away from him tried to lob it ahead, but unable to skate into it as Suzuki and now the lightning will be whistled for icing as they clear it back the hard way. I mentioned early in the game. It looks like Montreal was trying to do a little something different. Spread out Tampa Bay since then. The Lightning have not given the Montreal Canadians time to even look up and think about doing anything differently. There's so much puck pressure by Tampa Bay on the Canadians that there's just there having to get rid of the puck quickly. Suzuki wins the draw.

That with preceded the pause. Yeah. John, what's going on? Mike, How Okay, I I guess I can tell what side of the fence your friend Brad Garrett's on. So this program where We that Obama must have installed where we go after Rogue gun dealers. Uh, if only Trump hadn't gutted that program, Brad saying that it might have worked. If only we had given it more time like there's any government program that if you give it enough time will work. Well, there are you can't say no government programs work. I mean, yeah. I mean, Brad Garrett surprises me, too, because he's lifetime FBI, and he seems to be rather soft on crime, or at least his approaches to crime are soft. Yeah, I mean, If we think that going after rogue gun dealers, you've got to solve any shooting problem. That's ridiculous. I think they're chasing a boogie man on this one. But but let's be honest. Uh, look, there are so many guns out there. You can go to anywhere any county any city and buy a firearm. People that want to commit crime Generally, do not go buy new guns correct. And so now, if I'm not mistaken, it didn't Rudy Giuliani have some somewhat success in New York when he had to stop and press program. Yeah, but they challenged. They challenged the constitutionality of stopping and frisking actually pass constitutional muster. It didn't really pass the social test and that was that it was targeting for the most part, African American and Hispanic, so people of color. But then again, that's who was shooting people, and that's who was getting shot. If you're trying to save lives, go to the people who are being impacted by the violence. Yes. Yeah, and I look, I can see that that would that would cause an issue right? But Think Giuliani did have some success. I know that that that they don't do that anymore, so it was successful. There is no doubt thousands of lives were saved by stop and frisk. There's no doubt about that. Yeah, but I would imagine if you if you installed a program like that, nowadays again, it wouldn't pass the social tests, but this whole if Biden's group think that this is going to solve the problem, this is ridiculous. This is ridiculous. Well, there are problems, especially in Chicago that most of the guns The cops take off the street. Or maybe it's most come from northern Indiana gun dealers. I'm not saying the gun dealers are doing it but straw purchases from gun dealers. Take him into Chicago. Selling on the street. Make a boatload of money. It is happening there now.

He brought us Portillo's chocolate cake today, courtesy of my girlfriend who wanted make sure everybody here was fed. Yeah, and he went on a South side story yesterday with Beverly Records. He would two top notch top notch burgers. He went to Rainbow scream. It was fun. He made the whole like Western Avenue Strip. It was great and then topped it off by going to Portillo's and very nice. That we want up with Portillo's chocolate cake today. That's becoming a tradition here. Leave. We had it last year. Yeah, because Dean, you're working remotely. A year ago. You're at the TV station so you can get to partake, so I wanted to make sure you have. That's right. So lovely, lovely tradition that we started like that. Uh, let me tell you, my my Portillo's chocolate cake story related to my mom. You know she was the Baker Baker's We when we were little kids. We were the kids that had birthday cakes that looked like rockets that looked like castles like she. That's what her job should have been. She should have been a professional baker because she loved it Number one, and she was amazingly talented. And created all of these beautiful artistic cakes. Really all of her life, You know for us, her kids, But for family members for friends, she was always doing that always baking cakes, so one family event. I said to her, I'm gonna bring dessert to the revenue dinner. I'm gonna bring us some Portillo's chocolate cake. And she said Oh told Mike, Don't waste your money on cake. A store bought cake. You can't start this not gonna be as good as the cake that I made. I said, I'm telling you, this cake is delicious. Just know while you were wasting you may as well take your money and throw it out the window. It's not going to be as good as any cake that I made and she made. She didn't go ahead. Make a cake. And stubbornly. I went ahead and brought Portillo's chocolate cake anyway. S o. You know, I said, just take a bite of it's like she didn't even want to try it. She was convinced it was going to be garbage because it was store bought and she takes takes Ah fork and takes a bite of the Portillo's chocolate cake. And she's savoring it. Your mouth like she's a summer yea tasting tasting wine. Exploring the subtle nuances and she takes it and she throws the fork on the table. She goes. That's damn good cake. Uh, convinced her that's good. Convince. She's right too. It is damned. Yes, it is. The lady was not lying, and it definitely is. Damn good cake. S so we're remembering moms today. You know, I wanted to spend you know, we always do. We always spend a little time talking about our favorite TV mom's TV and movie moms. And they did a recent survey. They do this every year. And Mrs C. Mrs Cunningham from Happy Days came out as the number one TV mom acts have been sure it has to be excellent choice. So disrespected her. I I I'm really a little surprised that that Just I mean, she's a fine representation of TV moms. But what about a Carol Brady? A. Carol Brady? What about a cartridge family? What about a Claire Huxtable? She was She was a fantastic mom. Uh, you know who I was speaking off, you know, Favorite moms on TV and the movies. My mom's favorite TV Mom, Doris Roberts from Everybody loves Raymond. Uh huh. And I got to say, I think that's Good choice. He would always say That's me. You see her? That's me. She's intrusive. She gets into your life, but you but she doesn't for love. That's what I do SA herself that way. But there are lots of them. So I want to open up the phone lines, is it? What about a June Cleaver? Yeah, there have been I was going to mention it, but I thought you'd make fun of me. What for? Because of a 1950. Yes, I would've I definitely would have made fun of you for that. What about Peggy Bundy? Peggy Bundy was good representation. Don't forget Laura Petrie. Losing my country was a great She was a mom. Laura Petrie was a great mom to little snot nose riches yet decided. I think Richie was kind of a little brat. Uh, been watching the reruns, which is kind of a pain in the neck. He would have gotten spanked in my house and a little more. Not by me. They would have shown that on not by 19 sixties TV, you know, I think it's a fantastic mother. Marge Simpson know? Yeah, Okay. Marge Simpson's a fantastic TV mom. She's been at it a long time. Yeah, those kids have not grown up 1000 tests and all that time 312981. 7 200 for your favorite TV moms you can call in would love to hear from you on this Mother's Day 3129817 200 but also your favorite movie moms. I definitely have some favorite movie moms, For example, I love the movie the blind side. That started Sandra Bullock. That was a beautiful representation of pure love and motherhood. There is Mommy theorist Faye Dunaway. Played a memorable movie Mom in that movie. Joan Crawford, speaking of Mommie Dearest in Mildred Pierce was fantastic Mom, Sally Field. Was one of my favorites in Forrest Gump. How about you 31 to 91? 7 200. You know what? This was one of my mom's favorite movies imitation of life. That starred not on Li, the great Lana Turner. But also this was a movie that also started one Eatem or Lana Turner was a single mom. Raising her daughter. She was like, sort of up and coming in show business. And Juanita Moore was sort of kind of a housekeeper for her, and she was raising her daughter, who was half African American, half white. And the daughter had a real problem with being mixed race. And it's this story about the raising of these two daughters and these two moms trying to do the best they could for their daughters. It's a heartbreaking movie. It's a tear jerking movie. But it was one of my mom's favorite. But both Lana Turner and especially one Needham or in that movie is absolutely stunning. What else do we have here? 31 to 91 7 200. Oh, how about how about Shirley Maclaine in terms of Endearment. Remember that scene. You know her daughter, Debra winger, who also played a great movie Mom in that film. Debra Winger's dying of cancer. It's time for pain medication, and Shirley Maclaine goes nuts with the nurses trying to get her daughter some some relief from the pain that she's in. From dying of cancer. She's amazing and that film 31 to 91 7 200 Sally Field again for a steel magnolias. Speaking of Mom's losing their daughters. Okay, let's get to our phone lines in our text lines. Your favorite movie moms and we start off with Mary calling in 3129817 200. You are on WGN. Mary. Oh, hi there, Dean. I'm just correction. I'm kidding you, but you said Mary Tyler Moore was a great man. But, I mean, I guess you meant expanding because she wasn't a very nice mom in ordinary people wouldn't even go in the picture with him. She was a pretty terrible nightmare, right? Right. And wasn't that part of the power of that movie of seeing somebody who we knew. As so lovable both from the Dick Van Dyke Show and also her own show The Mary Tyler Moore show. Oh, yeah, now now playing this awful character in ordinary people, but that she was You know, I don't want to say she was a great mom. But that was a great role of a mom. Right? Exactly is she is a good actress and that, but yeah, she was from Laura Petrie. Tol world worth, ma'am. All right. Take care of the very, very different. You're exactly right. Thank you for the call. This is Sandy. You're on WGN. Hello. How's it going? Hey, buddy. Hey, I think my favorite TV mom.
Microsoft Drops Windows 10X Before It Ever Launched
"Microsoft had been touting this windows ten x for awhile the next version of windows it's gonna be. We're going to rewrite it from scratch. We're gonna we're gonna components. Is it and make it more robust and more reliable and and it's going to be for our new dual screen devices. The duo in the neo except then the duo came out and it was an android phone. What hey what and didn't sell that will cause was fifteen hundred dollars. I bought one in took it back because it was just not. It's just it wasn't a great phone you know if you're using it as a phone it's gotta be good phone first and foremost now. It looks like according to. Brad sam's over at petrie breads this guy with good sources that the neo is probably not gonna happen Which is disappointing to me because it was very cool nor is the windows. Ten x the special version of the rewritten from scratch beginning of time version of windows. Tha when the new next generation of windows microsoft will not be shipping windows. Ten x this year says brad this year being twenty twenty one and the oh as you know it today. We'll likely never arrive. He writes for about a decade microsoft. Have been trying to modernize windows in various ways. Put on problems with windows. I think some would say this is one of the good things about windows is it Doesn't abandon the history of the past. It's still runs software. That came out twenty years ago. It which is a great labor on microsoft's part to make that work. Furthermore impacts stability security a lot of things. But they're you know hell bent to keep a windows compatible with everything that ever worked with windows.

"So I took that information and I put down peppy bad and it's for a few days. I think the only prints on it once but here You're pretty good. And they always said he just quit. Let me let me let me start. Let me just read. Let me just stop you for a second. Where do you keep the dog? Well way. Stay right here. And I both stay here on this couch. A lot. Uh, Okay. I usually keep it. Wolf cape right down here in front of the couch, and he was using it, But then he quit. And so that's it you're making when you're making a lot of mistakes. First, will bless you for taking this dog. I'm so glad he's finally got a good home. But listen to me really, really carefully. It's important. Number one is when you cannot watch the dog with Hawkeye. He needs to be confined. You don't want the dog to be going on pads all over the house because you're gonna confuse the dog. What I want you to do is find an area in the house. Where to be the kick in a laundry room. Whatever. I want you to cover that entire area with pet the entire floor with pads. However, on one side I want you to save some of his poop or even a little bit of his urine and put that underneath one pad with a pad on top of it this way, the scent is there. What we're going to try to do is get the dog comfortable with going in the pad in that area because he can't miss the whole room's covered with pads. He will pick an area or one path to go on, and then you start removing the pads from the opposite and Tell you down to the one pad and is using that consistently. But his long as you have paired to other place in the house, like in front of the couch. He's not gonna learn to go back to that one pad when he has to go. So all you need to do right now is watching with the Hawkeye. If you know he could find a watch. No in between. If you can't watch him, he's gated off in that area, totally with the pads down in the areas he's gone in past. I want you to use a good stay in and order a movie to clean it up. I pretty much can tell you. He doesn't have the opportunity to make any mistakes now because either you're going to be watching him with a hall kind. Your wife's gonna be watching with the Hawkeye or he's gonna be confined in the kitchen area. I usually recommend the kitchen because that's probably the easiest Florida clean number one and is usually a backdoor going into New York. So that's what I would be doing at this point. It's not that difficult. There's no way in the world that you should not have this doghouse broken and 12 to 14 days, Randall Okay, Well, I appreciate the information, sir. No. I appreciate what you said to me. What? I wanna do it because I want you to. How old is the puppy? Now? He was a hero here today. Okay. I have you done any training with him? I got him. I got him last August. Have you done any training with him? Well, I'll play with him all the time. I'm sure you do sure you by the way, I agree with you. I A couple of years ago I did route 66 on my motorcycle and I went to Oklahoma City, and you guys do drive a little crazy there. You're absolutely right. Let me do this man. I want to put you on. Let's put Randall I hauled and let's send Randall a copy of how to get your dog to do what you want. Bless you, Randall for taking that dog And I really, really thank you for that. Hey, The phone number here at the pet show is 8777258255. I got lots of great stuff to give away. We're gonna go to market in the Ontario. We've got James in Tennessee. We got Daphne and reading California. Leora Impress Carmen gets all your cause. I promise. I got plenty of time. The question of the day is You have potential to my talk a little bit later about pet insurance as well. But I'd love to hear from some people that have either adopted or off fostering their dogs or cats. During this, this cove, it things covert situation and also coming up. Lady sent me the email this week. I'm actually it's kind of an interesting talk about later. She and her boyfriend cannot be intimate like that's my problem, but they can't be intimate. I really do feel like Dr Ruth. Because her dog will not let her and her boyfriend have a relationship. We're gonna talk about that a little later. If you're in the same boat, Give me a call 8777 to 5 82 55. 8777 to 5 80 to 55 Let me take a quick break them right back all of your phone calls. We are in Prescott, Arizona, and then we're going to James and Tennessee Mark in Canada and Daphne in California. 877 75 82 55. Listen to me. This is important. Most important thing you can do. Besides making sure your dog sees a veterinarian is healthy is what you feed him. That's why I feed and have fed my recent adoptees. Molly in Willie, Lucy Pet for most life, pet food since the day I brought them in the house, and you see their pictures on my Facebook post. You know how healthy they are. So here's the scenario, okay? I have been recommending Lucy Pet food, and I've been getting letters and emails from people all over the country, saying Warren, Thank you for letting us know about Lucy Pet food because it's so important with that prebiotic balance fiber, the probiotics and most important, I've been getting any letters from people that run shelters you main organizations, Police Department, even the FBI dogs and now using Lucy Petrie informers for life, because it's that good, But don't take my word alone. I want you to absolute listen to what a real listener has to say about Lucy Pet food. I'd give a quick story about Lucy that food. Sure. Okay, so I bought it because you said to buy it and it says to blend it in with the food that you're feeding them. They could like, you know, Gradually get you fit, and my dog said no way they immediately started taking out the old food and leaving it all over the floor and the eating pet food. That's quite what kind of dog is it? Suit. You always was the smart dogs. I'm telling you right off the back, and they're not getting the best food they could possibly get. There is not another food on the market back. Lucy Pet for Miss Life, Pet food with that prebiotic and probiotic balance. Farber. In fact. Joe. We heard the guy who is the CEO and president of Lucy Pet food and not only listen to what they've done, You know lots of times. You go to the store. You buy dog food, cat food, and it's made by one big manufacturer. They put a different label on it. This is this brand. That's that bread, not Lucy. Pet food. They actually have their own manufacturing plant right here in Southern California Manufacturing Lucy Pet products right there, and they test them right there as well. So If you're not feeding your dog, Lucy Pet food and your Cat's Lucy Pet food..
What the immune response to the coronavirus says about the prospects for a vaccine
"With a number vaccine candidates against the corona virus sharing promising results in clinical trials and a growing number of studies elving into our mean response to infection. The spotlight has turned once again. On the body's defense mechanisms. I think two questions that really relate to the ability of the vaccine to protect us and our ability to fight off a second infection and so that is the quality of the immune response and the duration of the immune response this week. I'm joined by professor. Eleanor riley from the university of edinburgh to dove into these questions and more. I'm nichole davis. Welcome to science. Weekly ellena you came onto the podcast in july and talk to us about immunity and covid nineteen specifically the relationship between antibodies and immunity. So let's start with a recap on the major players in the immune system that are of interest when it comes to an immune response and potentially immunity so antibodies are protein molecules that are produced by immune cells kobe cells and these cells live in our spleen and narrow and they secrete antibodies off. They've been exposed to a foreign organism such as virus. There are two types of cells that produce. Antibodies on short-lived cells that produce. Antibodies for a few weeks national to the first line response and then some of those cells transition into lonely cells that goto a bone marrow and can produce antibodies for months years. Possibly even to case and then on top of antibodies. have that can kill virus. Infected host cells t cells the two types of t cells one of which we think of such of the conductor of the orchestra of the immune system and these kotei health cells and they very much help the b. cells to make antibodies produce. Growth factors may direct the direction in which the be cells developed and they will still give them signals to turn into cells and then there are the cdte cells and they actively kill virus infected cells and then Antibodies can also bind to these specific cells and help them to kill cells so they recognize little bits of virus on the infected cell bind to the infected so and kill it and then there are cells which are less specific cells that we call macrophages are neutral fills and they just recognized that. Something's not quite right with the cell. They don't necessarily recognize the infected with the virus and they kill it actually or bits of the immune system work together a little bit like you need a whole orchestra to make a good tune when you need all of these cells working together to make a good news arms. And i know you said in july that at that point it was too early to tell how quickly people were losing their antibodies. And we've got to remember here that it's a relatively new virus. What's the latest research saying that seems to have been some movement on that now. What we're seeing is if you all the data together. There's an early peek in the antibodies wants. Lots and lots of antibodies are produced to mop up all virus. That's in your body and then as that virus goes away the antibodies start to decline a little bit. Because you don't need them any antibodies anymore and they settle into a of steady class. O of antibody production. And that's very typical. This kind of two phase response the only peak lots of antibodies followed by sort of standing level of antibodies. That nick for a long time. That's very typical of an antibody response and it sort of relates to the short lived long lived cells. You have lots of short-lived cells making lots of antibody that off and then the long lived cells who that fewer in numba keep on producing. Antibodies for much longer so yes. Let's talk about these long-lived b. cells in the no said the t. cells. What is research telling us about what happens to them and how. How long do they hang around for. So we don't have much data on those are actually quite difficult to look at in humans. They tend to live in the bone marrow for example not very accessible and so we tend to rely on mathematical modeling of the change in the dynamics of the antibody concentration to predict what's going to happen even though we haven't actually been able to see it because it hasn't gone on long enough so the moment the infants is that we have suggests that things are probably okay these cells behaving as we expect them to the was one pay published early on suggesting may be a little bit of a fault with the production of these long midsouth. But i'm not sure that that's been replicated in other studies. I think i saw a preprinted study. That hasn't been peer reviewed yet. Which jested that these visas and t so's lost for at least six months is that. What are the problems here in terms of measuring this so we only have six months data at the moment and the virus really hasn't been around that long so what we can say the moment. Is that the cells assisting for as long as we are able to measure them at the moment obviously in six months or another twelve months time. We'll be able to go back to those people and say have they still got those cells. Yes or no. But in the meantime just looking at the change in the dynamics of the response and mapping it onto what we know the other viruses. My prediction is that these that there will be some long lift immunity to this virus. He said there might be some long term protection. How long term are we talking here. I mean i've seen a lot of people saying well current viruses such as that of course common code some codes of course by coronavirus is of course the protection only lasts for say a year or so. Do we think that our protection against the corona virus that causes covid nineteen mike baxter timeframe or or could it be longer. I think it's very difficult to say at the moment. Say all of the data. We have suggests that these antibody responses are going to be at least as long lived as response of corona viruses. And possibly i might think even probably going to last longer your immune response tends to be proportional to the level of threat that you face so the common cold corona viruses really only colonize our upper respiratory tract so on nose throat and so the virus doesn't go very deep into apology and we make rather grief that effective noon response nose and throat that controls it this coq nineteen causing virus goes much deeper into our bodies it goes down into our lungs into bronchial and therefore the immune response tends to be stronger and they struggle we call systemic immune responses do tend to last longer because they are recognizing that there is a more serious threat that has to be dealt with. Do we know if factors like ethnicity gender age factor in the scale of the immune response. She said stronger. Immune response to your first. Infection is is more likely to me. You have great protection against the second infection. Those factors correlated at all. There's very little day to so far on ethnic differences in the immune response the data. That's coming after the vaccine trials suggests that there aren't any major differences in at between ethnic groups in terms of whether the vaccine protects them will not but we haven't yet seen lab data on their antibody responses with at t cell responses. There is a lot of genetic variation in the immune response. People be aware that some people unfortunately have very severe genetically determined immunodeficiencies. That's just the tip of the iceberg of genetic variation in the immune response and some of those differences do have geographical and ethnic components to that certain genes that either make good or bad immune response on more common or less common in groups countries. But we don't yet know if any of that is going to influence really the totality of their immune responses. We just don't have any evidence much by age. It feels like ages is. It's very important given that the older you are the more risque from caveat nineteen so there are two components to that one is whether you are able to make an immune response again's a virus. You've never seen before and there is. I think really quite good evidence that you ability to make a completely new immune response does decline as you get older. The other component is that a lot of the disease we say in coke nineteen excessive inflammation. And there's also evidence that we get older with less good controlling inflammation so it's a little bit of a double whammy as we get older way are less able to make an immune response to a new virus such as the covid nineteen virus and if we then get the viral infection where less good at controlling the inflammation that it causes a so we know there are several different vaccines. Which looking very promising. You have the rene vaccines at you have vaccines which used a chimp. Virus to bring genetic material from the corona virus into cells. The question is is the immune response that generated the same as it would have been to a natural infection and do the t. cells and so on hang around in the same way. The vaccine is just a tiny component of viruses this spike protein which is on the surface of the virus and so if you vaccinated with spike protein. You make antibodies in tesol responses just to that protein. If you get the virus itself then you get many many more pro teams that you're exposed to a new may make antibodies to some of those. So you responded more limited but you might also say that your response is more focused because it's actually antibodies to spike coaching a really important for neutralizing the virus so the vaccine in juices a narrow immune response but one would hope it would also be focused on therefore stronger on the base the matter and would it be expected that this will provoke a stronger. Immune response natural infection. I've heard some people say that actually vaccine can producer a strong response it coun- if they initial infection is quite mild say with virus like sauce covy to which induces very mild infections in some people i would expect the vaccine to tobacco to jason mewes which is much stronger than you would get after nascent dramatic or mild infection. People get serious dose of coca to make a very strong immune response. And i doubt if the vaccine it doesn't need to be any strong national adopt if it is when it comes to and viruses the coups common code. It's been some concern that these viruses somehow elude the memory b cells. and so. that's why even though we have thousand cells to to the common cold viruses. We will often get reinfected with them. I wonder if they're those same concerns about the coronavirus behind covid nineteen so there is a little basic data. There's one paper that suggests that the sauce kofi to virus that causes covid nineteen disables particular pathway in the b. cell response leading to a poor long term memory response but these experiments done in the lab in a in a in a petrie dish. And i think it's too early to know if that's really what happens in humans so i think we do need to be a little bit cautious and we need to be aware that it might happen. Good news is that the proteins that are believed to cause that problem are not present in the vaccine so even if it's a problem in natural infection it shouldn't be a problem with a vaccine
Carbon dioxide levels hit new record; COVID impact 'a tiny blip'
"Levels of carbon dioxide co two in the atmosphere hit a new record of four hundred and ten point five parts per million in two thousand nineteen the world meteorological organization wmo has said in its annual greenhouse gas bulletin the un agency announced the concentrations of co two are expected to keep rising this year. This is despite a slight reduction in emissions. Owing to the covid nineteen pandemic carbon dioxide is the most important of several greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. Its levels have risen by forty eight percent since pre industrial times. Wmo said in a press conference. Here's oxana tarassova. Wmo chief of atmospheric and environment research division speaking to a news conference in geneva which we have now in the atmosphere is accumulated scenes. Seventeen fifty so it's every single beat which would put in the atmosphere since that time. Actually foods the current concentration. It's not what happened today or yesterday. That's a whole history or the human economic and human development which actually lead us to this global four hundred tiem. Wmo secretary-general petrie. Talas said that. Caveat nineteen related lockdowns were expected to reduce this year's carbon dioxide emissions by between four and seven percent. This was despite the fact that pandemic lockdowns limited people's mobility but not their consumption of energy the un agency
Breaking Through as a Challenger Brand in a Dominating Industry with Michael Landa
"Michael say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know probably feared asked people my office they would not know was trying to think earlier is one thing that they definitely would not know about me and that is that up until about I'd say probably a couple of years ago I could still do a standing backflip in my office. So Yeah. I kinda grew up as a competitive gymnast when I was in high school and then I was non-american swimmer. So I mean swimming was really my main sport. But I competed a lot on the floor exercises in gymnastics as well, which is something people most people don't know about me. I've just always had this feeling that if I ever tried a standing backflip immediately tear my MC l. that's just a thought that I I don't know why I had that thought that's why I said for years ago try. Not Going to happen. So fire nation as I shared the talking all about teaching an old dog new tricks and my guest today has launched a company called New Loewe, which is a combination of the words nutrition and love. So that Super Cool New Loewe and why Michael I mean, you went to business school why did you decide to start a pet food company before the PETRIE company? Kind of the Genesis of the Food Company was a company I started? Before new I, I'd spent the early part of my corporate career working for big companies. I used to work for is your oxen in General Electric, and then most recently with universal studios in. Two thousand one that I was in L. A. and I was taking a quick break and. I found I. Don't know how many of you have been through the experience of trying to find a pet sitter for your pet. I went through an experience, sperry the detail, but basically led me to leave universal and start what became the nation's largest at home pet sitting dog-walking training business. Is based in Los Angeles and we. I spent about a decade running that company and was it was in and of itself was a really cool business about one, hundred, eighty five. Pet Sitters dog walkers doing roughly eleven thousand a month all over Greater La, and you know the significance of that was I was you know we're on the front lines of feeding a large population of dogs and cats whether parents were traveling and over the course of the decade I really started to see a huge demand for pet sitters who could administer at home insulin shots, and this is for diabetic dogs and cats, and we eventually it started to stress the business where I couldn't hire that tax and and trained my sitters to give shots fast enough and you know one thing I was trained academically as a biomedical engineer. So I I can be annoying and in my ability to kind of. Dig for root causes and that's exactly what I did in this case is you know I started asking myself like what what's happening why are so many pets getting sick why are so many dogs and cats getting diabetes and? I went out and talking to vet schools and scientists around the country and you know what I learned wasn't I'm GonNa say it wasn't really rocket science but it was you know essentially that are pets are living in in their own version of fast food nation we have you know we we have a country where four. A large large conglomerates control over eighty percent of the pet food sales in the United States and you know these are the very companies that make candy, chocolate, Jelly and cereal right. These are these are the four that control eighty percent of our pet food distribution the US. So you know. Really. The majorities are really low in meet their high in carbohydrates, these high glycemic ingredients. They're marketed very well but unfortunately, dogs and cats can't use the food for themselves otherwise, they choose products that are high in meat. That's one of the reasons you know I. Before I even gave it much thought I was leading Los Angeles moving to Austin Texas and I started new Loewe with the objective of creating a food platform. That's more species Pacific for dogs and cats at high in meet low in carbs and look like
Remembering Carl Reiner, A Legendary Writer, Producer And Performer
"This is fresh air when Carl Reiner sitcom pilot starring him, his TV writer Rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast, including Reiner himself. The result. The Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore. Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in 1995. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife, a television wife, and that really had its classical parameters and dimensions that they were established. And they hardly ever varied except A Sze to whether or not the wife was the star of the show. In which case she was the funny one. Or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives We're kind of obedient and you know, a representative of the vows to love, honor and obey. They hardly varied from that, and With with Carl Reiners character the way she was written, Laura actually had opinions of her own. While she was asserting herself. She also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was ah, a matter of two people. I mean, society's expectations of that point still said, Hey, wait a minute, lady. You only go so far here, but I think we broke new ground. And and that was helped by my insistence on wearing Pants. You know, jeans and and capri pants at the time because I said, I've I've seen all the other actresses, and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on And I don't do that. And I don't know any of my friends to do that. So why don't we try to make this real and I'll dress on the show the way I do in real life, But it wasn't that easy. The sponsors were afraid you brazen right? They pointed specifically to if they used the term cupping under And I can only assume that that meant my you know my my seat that there was a little too much definition. And so they allowed me to continue to wear them in one episode. One scene per episode. And only after we check to make sure that there was a little cupping under as possible could coming under referring to the fit of your pants, the fit of the pants on my behind, right? But within a few weeks we were we were sneaking them into a few other scenes in every episode, and they were definitely cutting under and everyone thought it was great. The funny thing is, you know. Women liked me. They were not envious of the fact that their husbands had a crush on me. It was okay with them. They they were the first to know when I would meet people. They'd say My husband loves you so much. And he thinks you're so sexy. And this was it was not thing because they were also able to identify with me as a friend as a girlfriend. There was no resentment, no fear. Yeah, well, I think that that speaks so well for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke? Or did you just have to do it? Minutes before the actual broken? The whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique could still done today. But back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball as everyone thinks John Davis did a show called I married Joan. What a girl! What a world What a life! Hey for you, and then Lucy and several other shows followed. But in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You rehearsed for five days and then Ah, On the evening of the fifth day, the audience comes in and the camera's having blocked their moves in yours lined up with them. You film it from top to bottom in continuity. So during those five days, it was at least the 1st 3 days. It was very much a matter of rehearse. And contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up. And if it didn't happen this time, then the next time the experiment maybe it will Was a wonderfully supportive creative environment. Mary Tyler Moore, speaking to Terry Gross in 1995.
Snake cells grown in the lab produce venom we could use as medicine
"According to the World Health Organization over one hundred thousand people die from snake bites every year and and an estimated four hundred thousand more people are left permanently disabled with injuries like amputations paralysis bleeding disorders and irreversible irreversible. Tissue damage. Just to name a few. It's been called. The world's biggest hidden health crisis. Snake bite is a huge problem with a very the effective solution. anti-venom but anti-venom is made from snake venom itself and making it comes with some significant challenges chiefly chiefly that you need to milk alive snake to get that venom which is a very tricky and laborious process. That means anti-venom is inaccessible. Oh to the people who need it most but all of that could soon change with new research out of you trek university in the Netherlands. Dr Hans Cleavers is one of the world's leading stem cell. Researchers he's known for his pioneering work using human stem cells to grow small model organs called Organiz and in in his lab three of his students employed this technology with snake stem cells to make lab grown venom glands and this could mean the end of of milking snakes Dr Clippers welcomed quirks and quarks high. Now you normally work with human stem cells. How did you end up working with snake stem cells? Yeah that's a good question. I actually asked my three students Who did this in the first place? Why they started doing this? And this is what they call a Friday afternoon experiment. Essentially they took the research from my lap which has been essentially establishing protocols to grow human mini Orange Prince directly from from individual humans. And they asked so what would be the most iconic Oregon Debbie no culture so we we knew how to coach her most human organs by the end and then he came up with this van bland. So what's the fundamental process. Here you want to do to try to make snake venom out of snake stem themselves so you get a small bit of tissue from snake. Venom Bunt grinded up and even smaller pieces we stick of. NHL that mostly just quality and then the anti growth factors the ethic medium and then everything dies in a little bit of tissue exception of the stem cells else start building your started building a mini version of the orbit. Come from in this case snake on land and let me just watched growing Takes about a week date roebuck tenfold. In size many lands be up go for one Petrie dish to temperature dishes The next we go from ten to one hundred issue so these these mini glands grow extremely rapidly. They have the stem cells of glance but they also have the cells that make talk cents. Wow so you're talking about making many organs. What do they look like? So many orange look like a tiny at next one millimeter. Ailing me turn diameter. They're like little backs Whole bags of south essentially the inside of that bag will slowly fill the fan that yeah no defined innovation lab? So they're microscopic versions of the organs that make the Venom and they actually make the venom itself exactly. Have you learned things. Maybe learned that first of all that. The snake venom contains many many different venomous components. We also learned that in Glen. There are different cells of take different dachshunds. So could've easily makes everything turns out that inside the gland specialized cells at each made their own unique set talks. Wow Okay so you have your venom now. The the idea here is to make anti-venom to treat people who've been bitten by snakes how anti-venom anti-venom made currently so how it's done is a snake. Farm has one or more over the most snake species over a particular region and are more than two thousand different snakes. They are milked so vannice. Essentially extracted from plants and that goes straight into a horse. I always had horses and those horses will then make antibodies against him and at the League president their blood and serum era in Expected from these horses and that's sold as so now that you're able to produce venom in the laboratory with your organize. How with with the development of anti-venom change? Yeah so if I would have the money to do this and do it the way that girl drug companies develop these I would. It's very carefully. Look at what what components are in this particular and then by very modern recombinant technologies make an antibody asset and that would involve orse is entirely done in the lab using sophisticated united technologies and there would be no live snakes involved here though well so for every snake venom you would actually have to have your hands or one snake and get tissue and grow organs and then you would have an internal source of that particular. That particular snake can also particular snake. That's out in the wild because you have it's DNA could retain take DNA code and many many other things so the idea is to build up a library of snakes stem cells of different different species. Yeah collaborate with a form who is very public scientists in Holland like like symbol stark. Steve Orbit who travels the world makes movies of fairies animals so he has composed a list of fifty most iconic animals reptiles and he skirted providing uh-huh uh-huh and if you're teaching his lap also to take small tissue on these From all these animals and turn them into organize and create a large by thirty four fifty species start with to start finding out how to best make anti serum but also another important of Asian you can you can design designer drugs for diseases space on venom from snakes. Dr Clubbers thank you very much for your time. Okay thanks and Dr Hans. Cleavers is with the Hubris Institute for Developmental Biology and stem cell research at you tracked university in the Netherlands.
The Trouble With Embryos
"The predicament of what to do with embryos today that you might have left I ever after you've done rv if for some it's clear you thought the mad you let the embryos guy for others though it's much more complicated should you donate them to science or perhaps another woman and you even found that some people are gnashing their embryos and even making jewelry out of them yeah it's a way for them to hold onto what was or what might have been so today I'm going to take you to make women who are really struggling with what to do and just a heads up today's story features some things that might be distressing to some people China Wadsworth just after she gets home from work with her two year old daughter hello how are you the owners a single mom who works as an administrator at a school in Melbourne Jane before we can get started at dinner ready for a daughter tonight she asks for weeks and some socks tips talks like many women Fiona had never planned to raise a child alone can you when she was about to turn forty her relationship ended and I decided that I was wanting to have a child sooner rather than later I went to the doctor to find out what my options were and at that point found out that I was classed as medically infertile that news came as a terrible shock even though I was older I always thought that children or child was always going to be part of my life I remember sitting in the doctor's surgery crying and having my doctor cry with me so I've never forgotten that friends the owners who hadn't had any success IVF in Australia we're able to have a baby using a donor egg in South Africa so as soon as fear and I got the funds for Tree meant that's why she went to it was cheaper it was much more convenient than accessing joiners hearing Korea in here in the area and so I didn't do any other research I just did exactly what my friend had done because it was successful for her and her husband and so that then involved going overseas to South Africa to excess Dina Egg and five like Fiona Desa is also a single mom by choice she has two sons what did what a daughter paypal didn't happen so but look I love more boys they draw be crazy a on very very grateful very lucky Desa began ivf on her own when she was forty two at the time she hoped that she and her ex husband to get back together my ex husband was still on the same on an Fini's SORTA was playing around to say let's go have a baby the couple began preparing to stop fertility treatment but at the last minute dessus ex husband changed his mind in the waiting room said norm not doing this always full pullman injections and that was it was horrible it was hard journey with him marriage is uneasy with anybody but that was pretty bad and not only did all the pavements and and then said Narayan then always left half hormonal injections and got nowhere it was a turning point for desa should she go ahead alone naught she already had a referral to see a fertility specialist so desa decided to go through IVF treatment using donor sperm but we can that my ex annoy split completely forever the following Waco went straight to the doctors and he went and checked on something and then came back and said Yep we'll from one counseling session it was and next time you come in you can pick your donors as she underwent IVF treatment all of dessus energy went into hoping that at least one of her embryos work so the prospect of having embryos leftover was the last thing on her mind you just want to have a baby incubator off you know lucky enough to have Cabrera's because I know these girls that they were lucky to get one so that's desa over in South Africa Fiona was about to undergo IVF treatment for the first time using donor sperm and a donor egg and it was only then that she was confronted with the prospect that there might be embryos leftover that she wouldn't news I remember sitting in the waiting room all the clinic for the first time really saying Matt Paperwork and going K. other than thinking that in the moment that transfer in that attempt at pregnancy I can see that if it wasn't successful I'd go back a couple of months later for one I but I'd never had any real concept of excess embryos for both Fiona and Jessica there was happy news they both conceive children but now they're both left with the decision they hadn't anticipated what to do with the embryos stealing storage ivf clinics it's something that both struggle in with for now Fiona Endesa both paying their clinics hundreds of dollars every year to keep their excess frozen embryos frozen unfurnished case she's not ruling out the possibility of having another baby it's not off the cards I would love another one to give my child a full genetic sibling it's just my current view is that I wouldn't want to have another baby if I was until my current child is it it'd be more independent so another two years away which will then make me forty six forty seven but it's kind of very k now thin when they turned twenty one Obi oh my seventy sorry it's just something I'm aware of that's maybe not an ideal situation and then I'd also like to keep it if I only because I've not ruled out of it being in a relationship or eight I would love to mate someone to relationship we thin if he would like to have a child old then I would again prefer to have it is a genetic sibling sorry keep the mice in case that ever happens desa on the other hand knows she doesn't want any more children but she can't quite bring herself to discuss her embryos just yet when I was asked when you have excess embryos that's what you WanNa do at that time you not looking at them as human beings you just looking at the little you know I got bills in the Petrie dish but they want so I had my first son and then my pinned or I couldn't get rid of them because I thought Oh what about if they're also girls when you think about those two frozen embryos in the fraser how do you think of them I think of them as children or do the trouble is you can't keep embryos frozen forever there's a limit on how can you can legally stole them and that can go up to ten years depending on where the embryos are so both women will have to make that decision one day Fiona has a few more years left I've not been swayed either way I think for me it's going to be a decision up until the last day as to what I do with them so we'll probably keep them on ice for the full five years to keep my options open and just trying Wayne everything in factoring everything to try and make the right decision and for me for my child and family and everything Louise Johnson understands the complexities more than most she's the executive officer of the Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority that's the body that oversees all of the clinics Victoria when people and into Aviv treatment the emphasis on trying to have a baby and it's a costly process and sometimes people ran out of steam financially emotionally when they've been on that journey for some time and the thought there is potential life that store does now if clinic decision really tricky papal so if you decide you don't want to use your frozen embryos to try for another baby what are your options they can decide right that they'd like to donate their embryos to research but the number of protein that might be available at any one time can be limited and all clinics are linked up with research activities the other opportunity to donate embryos another couple or another individual Meinie embryos are donated for those people don't want to die night theory embryos to somebody else and don't want to donate them to raise rich it can be a matter of letting their embryos succumb on laboratory bench he is a is a technical term in IBF circles but if you look at walks fitting dictionary it's defined as failed to resist pressure temptation or some other negative force so does this relate to what happens when we let a frozen embryo succumb it's really allowing the embryos to come out of the frozen stash and it allows them to sit on the Lebron streep inch as they they want to remain viable and and no longer capable of life some clinics offer the opportunity to pick up the calmed embryos and take them harm plant them in a garden did as a way of saying goodbye today treatment journey in those particular embryos dessus wrestling with what agency she ascribes to the embryos she has left and she wants to see guidance not from her doctor but from a priest all think that he probably site to let them go because they already created but then autumn my stomach to study giving birth for them but I'll have to speak to him actually just WanNa see what his view is but that doesn't mean I'm GonNa go with that view Desa knows unlikely she can fall pregnant again but she can't bear to let him Brio succumb on a bench either so she's thinking about another way a very rare procedure. I mean why don't use them I'm nearly fifty five so I'm GonNa go and have another baby but but look if ordered maybe put them inside me just to release them but not to give any hormone injections or whatever to keep it that rare procedure is referring to is known in the US as a compassionate transfer it would involve a doctor attempting to implant desert embryos in her uterus knowing that this won't resign in a pregnancy but these two would lead the embryos to eventually succumb IVF clinics I spoke to said that they are reluctant to do it and that it's almost I never asked for is it the idea that if you put them in and they don't work out at least you kind of gave them a chance it is and but annoy that are proven wouldn't fall pregnant and would be the so either way you having to let them go and that's the hard part for you it sounds like and maybe I'll get there but I just haven't thought about it to that point where are just let him guy

Explainer 158: Ukraines presidential elections: out with the old in with the new?
"In two thousand fourteen in a fragile done. Ukraine Petrie Persian came to power in a landslide victory is not only of the president. Future. Monday chief opinion, not forces tried to do my best to defend Ukraine and people to bring security and to bring this five alita once tipped as a pro e u reformist came in. He would end the conflict in east, Ukraine. A matter of weeks is interrupted sizable spot of bother in the first round of the presidential elections. This Sunday Porsche isn't even guaranteed a place in the final run-off for the first time in Ukraine's history. The top two candidates are not clear cut to head of time poll. So far have been volatile results have consistently shown that house of more than thirty candidates? It is neither portion ker know, the fiber and former PM Hewlett Michenko who is stealing the top spot in that place polling with around twenty percent of the votes is actor and comedian Alinsky. Linski zero political experience and know organized party behind him. In fact, the closest come to preparation for the job is playing the role of fictitious president of the people in a popular Ukrainian sitcom yet despite this Porsche anchor and Timoshenko still trail significantly behind. So what's gone wrong? Why has the tide turned against Persian koso- further? And is there any chance it will be reversed in time? After the Ukrainian revolution of two thousand fourteen politically economically and socially, the people showed. It was time for Ukraine to be on par with the rest of Europe. And the hope was pinned on partial. While partial has an outright failed Gwendolyn, SaaS director of the center for east European and international studies in Berlin explains. The trouble of not living up to great expectations. The incumbent Puerto Shangqiu is really tied to the hopes that were societas with the euro my Donald two thousand thirteen and fourteen and he did initiate an important reform process. And also a pro western coasts for the whole of Ukraine, but he also symbolizes all the disappointments. So they hopes were extremely high and the reform process is extremely complex and slow. It has to be slow to certain extent and the electorate now associates also the failures or the slowness of this reform process with him. Aside from sluggish reforms another important sticking point is the ongoing water Ukraine's, east grunted, Putin's idea of Nevada and new pro Russian region in the east and south Ukraine hasn't materialized, but the have been some thirteen thousand deaths since the conflict began and the ceasefire remains fragile further. Still the wall has also fan the flames of militant Ukrainian nationalism formed as a breakaway from volunteer. Military group started in the early days of the war the far right national call have wreaked havoc on partially because recent campaign trail violently protesting presidential rallies with corruption. Acusations this added to the poor living conditions across the country. Makes it clear why Porsche is on shaky ground in Bateson. The freelance journalist in Kiev tells us more about the burdens portion Bess in Ukraine, it's especially difficult not only because the country with active finding a war going on. But also because it's twenty eight year history. They've only reelected and then come to the president once life is very hard for the average Ukrainian salaries are quite low the average monthly wages less than three hundred dollars a month utilities have been going up. So there's a lot of frustration in the country. And of course, gets directed at the president because there's still a belief that the president defines the entire system and that the right person could change that one of partial key reforms which brought him to pal in two thousand fourteen was his commitment to ending the corruption that had plagued the country ever since it became independent from Russia almost thirty years ago, though, he's made substantial anti corruption reforms in important sectors such as gas tax and banking a recent scandal within the defense ministry has tainted his presidency and only reinforced his image as a politician committed to enriching his pals. But it's partially co all that bad his not the only candor under five claims of this ilk, Timoshenko one-stop, the gas Princess has been in and out of water fillings to shady oligarchs politicians for years, and there are even suspicion surrounding newcomers landscape, the TV channel which runs his show is owned by a controversial billionaire and few believed that it's a business connection of no political significance. Gwendolyn SaaS believes the other patches of grass aren't necessarily greener. But if portion could get sin will Ukraine be better off, it is very hard to say one knows what one gets so it will be a continued slow reform process. Whereas with the other two candidates one we really don't know what policies they would focus on one end. Ski has absolutely no an actual program to speak off. So we would see something new with him. That's what he's running on on. Julia Timoshenko claims she roping something new that is highly doubtful. She is not a new petition on the Ukrainian context. So in the west many seaport o'shane cluelessly the easy option to prepare for. But it will also not mean a quick reform process in Ukraine and inexperienced leader like Solent scheme could make Ukraine susceptible to foreign influence, notably that of the Russians who to his credit portion has largely kept it Bain. While Timoshenko's presidential hopes failed to spell out, even one succinct agenda and of time gone by Porsche is not popular. But Ukraine must decide if the unknown will really be any better.

Finland passes enhanced surveillance bills without a vote
"Finland's parliament has approved a package of intelligence law reforms despite not having a government. The new laws will enhance the surveillance capabilities of military and civil intelligence agencies. Let's get more in this now with Monaco's Helsinki correspondent Petrie boat solve Petrie. Why was such a far-reaching reform passed without Finland having a functioning government? Are we perhaps putting a little bit too much faith into what a government can actually do? Perhaps perhaps now now this is a Bill that is supported by all the parties in the in the Parliament, I needed essentially going through years of preparation and debate before being finally passed yesterday infected was actually voted on already on Friday. And yesterday was just the final opportunity for the piece to voice or position to it. And when no one did the Bill was formerly passed. So you could you could say that the government had already done everything it could on this before it resigned and had basically he'd had already gone through many votes in the parliament. So it gives us a brief overview of what the new laws act, the what do you think Finland actually needs them? No. These laws had been in the making for quite some some years now, and there's a there's some experts say that finished surveillance lows slack behind those of many western countries as much as by fifteen years now as in as in all the western countries, there have been major changes in terms of the threats cyberwarfare election interfere. There's no, of course, terrorism and and these new Lois, essentially, give the states intelligence organs more powers to to preempt these threats by by listening to people's phone calls and reading their message is and so on. So this is likely to be prompting a lot of debate over there in in Helsinki Tillis have people getting being getting a little bit fight off about what's being debated in the halls of parliament. And you know, interestingly there has been some debate. Yes. But I would have expected much more given how far reaching this. These powers are that intelligence. Oregon's get now. For example, these loss required changes through the finish constitution. And there were some constitutional law experts that are post the lowest which actually cost the major delaying passing these laws and the defense minister Houston is the cost some controversy when he called this constitutional law experts constitutional Talibans, which let's there's more heated debate. But I think we have to bear in mind that faints by and large have a very strong trust in the government. And the government is the Touche's such as the army and police, and this means that. Most people don't have a problem with losing some privacy. If that helps the authorities to prevent crime well much progress found without a functioning government pitcher, just finally can you parent. You a crystal bowl for us perhaps and tell us whether you think Finland is likely to pass any more meaningful laws despite not having a government. No, I I think this is now now we're getting ready for the elections. The rest of the term still a couple of weeks left with the elections. Take place on in mid-april, the rest of the ten will be about preparing for July. When Finland takes over the rotating EU presidency. So hopefully, hopefully, no big loss until then
