"Point nine percent of the total population is fully vaccinated in africa around four percent of the total population of that continent has been fully backs naked. Africa has the lowest vaccination rate of any continent the five african countries with the lowest vaccination rates are the democratic republic congo. Tanzania shod through dan and burkina-fasso all with less than one percent of their population fully vaccinated. President biden has made the united states. The world's leader and distributing free vaccine to other countries. Joining us now is moist paste the director of the office of global affairs department of health and human services. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. what are some of the challenges. You're facing in actually getting these vaccines delivered especially to countries. Where refrigeration is a challenge for the pfizer vaccine and where they not only don't have refrigeration but they don't have the generators to power. Refrigeration is there. Is there some infrastructure element to this well first off lawrence. It was exciting the announcement the president made today as stating that we will be able to purchase an additional five hundred million bringing our total to about a billion that will be sharing for the next year But you're right. There are challenges with regards to readiness that we need to consider as well and that was also a part of today's kovic summit discussion when we think about issues like refrigeration and other logistics. Those are certainly issues that we're focused on here at hhs and across the government and we're actually working in countries like those. You named the drc in particular to help bring them up to a standard where they can absorb this pfizer vaccine. We've been able to work with them. On a bola vaccine distribution for example. So we're confident in our partnerships on the ground and that we can accelerate the uptake of what we're providing. What a what is on your wishlist That the united states hasn't yet been able to get to in terms of international support. Well i think some of that is outlined what we share today but one key piece honestly is just transparency. One of the biggest questions we have is what supplies really available. And we're not sure if some of the issues around the supply of vaccines is related to the supply chain itself If there are regulatory issues in countries or something else entirely like the logistics you mentioned and we're hopeful that by bringing the global community together including companies as well as a heads of government. We can look more closely at what we're all tracking and just be honest with one. Another frankly about what's in the pipeline. What's projected versus actually available and so one of our calls was for that level of data transparency in and that communication. We found when we're able to have those conversations with other government leaders or industry leaders that we fair a lot better in the support. We're trying to offer worldwide loose. Listen to more of what the president had to say today. We also know from experience that getting those vaccines in the people's arms may be the hardest logistical challenge. We faced today. The united states is also announcing that we're providing an additional three hundred seventy million dollars to support administering the shots and delivery globally and we will be providing more than three hundred eighty million dollars to assist in the global vaccine alliance gabby to further facilitate vaccine distribution in regions in the greatest with the greatest name. The united states is so far out in front of any other country and this kind of sharing of the vaccine. What what is the united states. Doing to try to encourage other countries with the capacity to share the vaccine. Well that was a big impetus for our meeting today. Lawrence really bringing the world together and giving them. The platform to share with us with their ambitions will be. We know that more needs to be done right. And we've been doing a lot as you said but we're even willing to put more out there to put more on the table and so our call to action for other countries to do the same that something a lot of people don't realize is as we continue to contribute these additional doses there is still a number of doses that have yet to be unlocked right there. A number of commitments that have yet to be fulfilled and so one of our asks for g. seven leaders for example and other countries who've made commitment is just to make make good on this commitments and it was very hopeful to hear the president of the for example. Say just that wars pays thank you very much for joining us tonight on this important story really appreciate it. Thank you lawrence coming up. It seems impossible to be a.

Promotion Ocean is is definitely definitely the way to go so Yeah there's still a decent amount of games left to be played We'll see who qualifies next looking forward to it Obviously there won't be Some teams that won't qualify until the end of March when the The playoff you know ends on the thirty first of March they play for all four so But for these I twenty.

Now that are I see major considerations all the confederations are major but Africa Asia right now are also Obviously playing matches are international. Break district two purposes Asia's doing there's for World Cup qualifying all sine While Africa's doing there's for the twenty twenty one Africa Cup of Nations so There's there's been and a lot of matches I mean. Obviously you know those are two huge confederations. The basically have the same teams as you're actually think Asian may have a little bit maybe ten countries fewer than than Europe and Africa put If you're looking for matches to watch you know there's there's plenty eight when Africa today Monday the eighteenth. We had South Tomato Principi hosting Ghana the Gambia Hosting the Democratic Republic Congo My African team that I follow Cape Verde is hosting Mozambique COMOROSS is hosting Egypt. Kenya hosting Togo and Botswana hosting Defending African champions Algeria tonight. And then for tomorrow. Let's let's see. We got Barundi hosting Morocco Mauritania Hosting Central African Republic Zambia hosting Zimbabwe Equatorial Guinea hosting Tunisia Libya hosting Tanzania Ethiopia hosting Cote d'Ivoire or the Ivory Coast and Niger hosting Madagascar. So I spent a lot of time in Africa because of my previous job and so I've gotten to understand a lot of the African soccer culture. Obviously it varies from country to country three and region to region. The fans are just as passionate Some of the the culture and cultural political situation and sometimes tend to interfere with matches not as far as like on the field. But you know whether they get the kickoff times are on time or if you know games are are played in the stadiums. They're supposed to be played in. You know little things like that. I mean it's a little quirky sometime but I mean the African fans are absolutely really amazing. I mean I it's it's great to to watch games In Africa so those are some of the matches that are are you know for today and tomorrow In the you know the next while it looks like they're not gonNA have the next round of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers until next August. Which is pretty wild? I think about it but that's good because you know we've been having too many international brakes anyway but over to Asia. Let's see they're playing all of their matches Che's for this round For qualifying the next ones. I should say The plane all them tomorrow. So it'll be the Maldives hosting Guam Syria Hussein. The Philippines Nepal Houston Kuwait Jordan hosting Taiwan Hong Kong hosting Cambodia. Media actually went nowhere that matches going to be plagued considering everything that's going on with Hong Kong now. It looks like that game will actually be in Hong Kong Iraq hosting Bahrain was Beckstein hosing Palestine Yemen hosting Singapore Afghanistan hosting Tatar Oman hosting India and India's completely like building up their their football like base with you know they they have their Indian Super League now They're just investing a lot of money kind of the way China's doing it just not on the same scale into the game within the country. Sorry so I would say look for India to over the next ten to fifteen years definitely become a much better team than they have been Me and Mar Hosting Mongolia. Lia cured republic or Stan hosting Tajijistan Malaysia hosting Indonesia Vietnam Thailand Turkmenistan hosting Sri Lanka and Lebanon hosting North Korea. So yes I mean. There's there's plenty of football for the next two days as for the Of the International League for the players go back to their National Teams C.`Mon Club teams on Wednesday one of the matches. That was was huge for for this break that I did not get the opportunity to watch But I did read about it. saw a highlighter to was a Brazil in Argentina It's the first game that messy was back since the Copa America. This past summer you know. He was suspended but he's back and he scored the deciding goal in this match. He's early thirteenth fourteenth. Minute But the the big headline aside from messy returning back to the Argentinian team. After we have suspended was I guess there was some George Atkinson some trash talking between messy and the Brazil head coach you know messy was basically telling him to be quiet. Who knows what they were saying to each other I didn't see any of the interviews But you know it's always good when mess. He's back for Argentina Yeah and then this coming summer again. There's another Copa America so It's always good to see that that rivalry between those two teams Brazil and Argentina. I mean wh when working you say Argentina one this one but you know Brazil still the champions of in South America so now the funny thing that I read this is totally unrelated to Brazil or Argentina but Corinne Ben Dema police for Real Madrid. French guy hasn't been called up for the national team in. I don't know how along I bet it's probably the some people don't even remember that he's ever played for France but The President of the French Football Federation recently said that Bensimon will never again be selected for the French national team Nothing there's some history between those guys or something that may have happened in quite read into it but Basically Benzon saying that. Oh if the president is sticking his nose in there saying that You know that I'm not going to be selected even though I could still play. Obviously he's still doing his thing for a Real Madrid He's basically saying. Let me play for someplace else. Let me me play for another national team which he would have to be released by France Basically saying that they're never going to call him up which the president has said. Even though I don't think did he a shop the manager for the French national team. I don't believe he said that but Bensman wants to be released and he would be able to be eligible. I guess because of his family or descendents of parents may be He'd be able to eligible should say to play for Algieria jury there the current champions of Africa and I think it would be ridiculous for to see Benza playing for Algebra I mean really good way I mean be good. You know he'd be able to be in a completely different tournament completely. Different continent you know I think that'd be a good thing for African football as well. I mean you know you got money Sala in Benza. All on the same name content is on the same team. He'd be on Algeria with Benza. I mean that would be just ridiculous and amazing to watch and you know something definitely worth seeing. AH The next African Cup of nations and possibly the World Cup it will happen. I think that France probably will not let it happen because I don't think they want to You know have something happened where they would have to you know potentially play against him in the World Cup But this is the first time that I can think of a senior player lease you know begging to be released to go to play for another national team. I think it'd be good. I think he should be allowed to go. They're not going to select them anymore. You know why let them sit there and Rot essentially not not play. I mean he's still playing for his club team. Obviously but I think You know why not let him play. Let him go let him do his thing. Francis is fine. Algeria is fine too but you know would definitely be nice to to see that. So what do you think about that you know. Let me know what you guys think again. Now put the contact information in the show description. So you guys can hit me up on instagram or twitter or email and I'd be interested to. Let's see what you guys think about players. You know that haven't been selected or aren't going to be selected for their current national teams. That would have eligibility for another team. If you'd think that they should be allowed Oughta go or if they should not be able to play me for example I wouldn't be able to play for another national team. I have no other nationality. No other kind of ties to any countries other than in the United States Germany but that really means nothing only. I live here because of my wife. My kids on hand my kids would actually be eligible to play for like three are- different teams which would be pretty crazy but I'm sure there's you know plenty of other people out there like that. That essentially select their national the national team from two three and even four or more Different eligibility paths. I know doc in Heard about this in like women's basketball. Obviously you know the. US Women's team is really good and There there's some I guess. The Russian League is like the biggest league in the world and there's you know other leagues and if the WNBA The US and there's some American Women that played the US their whole lives. The they're Americans. They've never been any place else but they were eligible to get other passports from other country's based on grandparents and parents and Because you know some of these European leagues they have like a limit on how many non European players can be on a team but but then if say an American. That's really good. You know has like grandparents. They were Italian or something. They can get European seeming Italian passport which basically makes them European Paean Sanal. It changes the numbers on the team. Yada Yada that was just a little tangent but I think that I don't know I I. I guess I don't really care I mean I'm I'm all about the sport I don't really care about who's playing for who I guess. As long as everything is fair and legal and falls within the rules. I don't think it really matters to be honest with you. The stuff we talk about during the international break. I'm looking forward to being over. Hello I'm ready to to go back to You know watching my my club teams This Saturday Sunday Sunday coming up speaker. It's gotTa match at home I may try to go see But they're gonNA be playing Karlsruhe. Karlsruhe is another team. That's in the second Bundesliga but they are maybe like a half an hour. Drive from Stewart west of Stewart So I mean I think that'd be a good game. Sure it'd be a lot of fans from Karlsruhe because it's so close Yeah looking forward to that in the following week store guard replaying Sand House in which is another team. That's may be like forty five minutes to an hour north of here so That actually wouldn't be a bagging to go to and I'm a member too so I could probably possibly get tickets. I don't know we'll see but I'm looking forward to going back to that. US has done their thing. You know they got the game against Cuba Germany's done their thing. They've already qualified. So now I'm ready to go back to my club team so With that.

"And bringing you to care what we're seeing with the irs here. It would just crossed three thousand number and the interesting thing. Is you know i worked in the west africa epidemic as well and when that epidemic happen with the twenty eight thousand cases in thought was a black swan event we i had never seen ebola do this and now here we are again. Another outbreak. Were those thousands of cases so how can a disease. That's so hard to transmit men believe it or not it is compared to measles or some of the other diseases. It's not airborne and so why is this happening. You know particularly now in this d._r._c. Outbreak were much better off than we were in west africa. We have a vaccine that we think works. We have now treatments that if you come early to care your mortality with this disease that we've thought is seventy percent or eighty percent in the past can go down to six percent and what do you think the answers to those questions are because most people aren't coming to care was the one one aspect is in this part of the democratic republic of congo and north and south kivu as you know there's a long history of political upheaval and they're about one hundred armed groups operating grading have been operating and so getting access to populations in that setting and doing safely so and having healthcare workers present and ensuring their safety has been difficult the the other is trust. People don't want to come to a community health centre with something that looks like malaria and then be taken away to another unit that they don't recognize. Are there changes going on the ground about how to deal with this current outbreak measles since it started the started in january for measles hundred sixty one thousand thousand people have gotten measles and over three thousand people have died of it in the same area of d._r._c. calls it. Yes and cholera. Laura fifteen thousand people have gotten sick right. Three hundred people have almost three hundred people have died and so look at this from the perspective of someone who is in one of those communities and democratic fred republic congo they're saying why are you so concerned with a bola when we're dying of everything else and so the strategy at thing which i believe a lot of organizations are looking thing to address is one. That's more comprehensive. Is there a moment that really sticks with you. From a recent visit to the gun border i think the moment moment was walking into an ebola treatment unit and finding all these healthcare workers there that have been taken care of suspect cases that have come through the border and just seeing meanness just look of complete both exhaustion but also you know the sense of pride of that. We're doing hard work.

That's amazing. Democratic Republic Congo is more popular than anywhere else in the world like they show W w e in some form of edited package.

They would be really impressed when they saw the route. Who is, you know. Well, K fehb seven foot, two in real life, probably six foot nine Gargano, but still gargantuan, confirm now real quick.

And by the way, you can go catch up with all the episodes of the wrestlers on the vice land app on your Roku, or your apple TV, and you watch next week on vice land. Wednesday night. Ten o'clock ten o'clock in the episodes at eleven o'clock. Okay. I'll next week. I thought about you right now because we were just talking about the fact that evolve one thirty one is gonna be there, tenth anniversary is going to air on the WWE network and the first episode really focuses a lot on Volve. Are you surprised at all that this move is happening or based on what you observed in heard? Are you not surprised that the relationships that's wrong with WWE and that they would air, potentially like this on the WB network? Logically been partly the pun in this case. But all being been where it's been going, I think, you know, took this through the WWE recognize games Polski for kind of the town's coat that he is.

Watched his career is only like three years deep at this point, when we first met him, we were shooting that of all thing, it was almost one year to the day that he started at evolve, and you've got this crystalline yo and he's just people that very few wrestler speak to, and that's like a certain type of fan that doesn't necessarily identify with, you know, even like thrall or someone like that. Like this is someone who, who speaks to the real threat of underdogs of the world. And I think he's got a huge future in front of the Phillies willing to in the ring. If you can survive you've got a huge future in front of him because I've seen him nearly died several times point, it was scary. Just watching the episode frankly not, not just the wrestling part. I mean, just him and his people on skateboards was scary enough to watch what? What? What was, what was the, the craziest or most fascinating thing. You observed doing the show, the wrestlers vice lamb where you, you, you went to different places all over the world to see how they do. Wrestling, what was the craziest thing you saw? Congo breath.

They flew to South America and started trekking north crossing the US Mexico border in the del Rio sector of Texas border patrol agents in that sector recently took more than five hundred African migrants into custody in just one week. I think the migrant crisis at the US border has been so well publicized and because of all of the chaos over policymakers in Washington. DC it all gives the appearance that the US border is really open for business right now. Randi caps is a researcher at the migration policy institute.

In fact, cap says many central Africans don't even make it to the sea there at refugee camps in North Africa. Maneuver stock.

"Right. NYC the former Defense Secretary ash Carter, his new book inside the five sided box lessons from a lifetime of leadership in the Pentagon. The press release for your book says you helped engineer and carry out the plan that brought ISIS to it's knees has ISIS been brought to its knees, yet, has militarily, and that was the plan that we started in twenty fifteen on those carried on through twenty sixteen was basically completed by the end of twenty sixteen. But then the war went in a little bit in twenty seventeen for the final fall of Mosel in Raka. And I think it's a great tribute to the United States that it was done, by the way that crossed to administrations that war, which is and Trump, which is to the credit of, of, of us for sticking with something that was the right thing to do. Because when I came into office in two thousand five fifteen writing people don't remember this, but these guys are bar Berens. They're crucifying people. They are in slaving women. Twenty five twenty fifteen. He can't have that. And then my job is to protect our people. And they are trying to attack Americans. They try to get some loser at a keyboard offer his up somewhere with the idea of being a member of ISIS, and then go out and running people over in the in the roads you can't have that. So we had to destroy that we had to destroy the fact and the idea that there could be an Islamic state based upon the city algae. That's the plan was about, and it, basically unwound. Exactly, according to our plan over the next two years. Now, you ask, is it finally won while Muslim rock of fawn? One of the things I said, always was, I was confident we would win militarily the thing I wasn't confident about now. I'm not competent at all about is that we would win the peace thereafter. Meaning the political and economic, and these guys once they were beaten would stay beaten and you in, in order for that to occur. We need to stick with the people whom we backed to beat them, which is the Iraqi government, and some of the Syrian democratic forces, including Syrian Kurds. And if we abandoned field the chaos that ensues will bring somebody back that may not call themselves. I suppose they well call themselves. I some weed back. I don't feel like fighting at war again I've been narrowed nail several times. In fact, the Atlantic magazine last month backed up your claim that it was in your and President Obama's administration that the current push began that US-backed forces already controlled half of the Iraqi city of Mosul. The crown jewel of ISIS when Trump took office. Yes, they continued the strategy and continue to take land from them. But the Atlantic also says, Trump's signature changed to that plan was a loosening of restrictions that had helped reduce civilian. Harm in US air strikes, that plus the difficulty of fighting and crowded neighborhoods and the shortcomings of local forces played a role in turning western Mozell, as well as the ISIS stronghold of Raka in Syria into house gapes, and it says aside from the moral implications. Many analysts say that allowing the destruction to reach the scale was a strategic blunder that will help revive among the population after being even after being militarily defeated how much you agree with that. I don't really I, I well, I don't think that the Trump administration would be charged with, with allowing wanton destruction. I didn't observe that in. We typically our air crews, and our planners are very scrupulous about that kind of thing because there's a reason for that, which is, if you overdo it then later, the people. Resent what you've done, but it to the basic point you know, we were never really I never and President Obama who had approved things never really, we weren't limited in our pace of the campaign by rules of engagement on bombing. That's kind of a myth would limited us was that we didn't we didn't we who's intelligence. So we had targets that we could mom and the movement of forces on the ground. So that we had, we had a battlefield that we could support, those were the things to this idea that somehow we were ABI namby-pamby really wasn't ever the case. So I don't think that's what that story is true is true either to the Trump administration or the administration and last question in this category. Do you take any responsibility? What Defense Secretary yet? But let's say does the Obama administration. Or should it take responsibility for ISIS becoming a strong as it did in the first place critics blame the Obama administration for pulling out of Iraq too quickly at the end of two thousand eleven and dismissing ISIS as the junior varsity? I think President Obama called underestimating the threat will I I don't think that was what caused it only. But it but it didn't help and I was deputy secretary defense. You're right. I was not the number one the number two and I opposed our the withdrawal the total withdrawal, or near-total withdraw US forces from Iraq. But you can't say that ISIS grew out of that. Simply historically, for the reason, the rather things that were going on. There was a government in Baghdad. That was behaving in a way that couldn't pull the country together, and we sure to alleviate Sunnis and start extremism. There was an economic collapse than the read the things going on. It would have helped if we were there to keep things together. I'm not sure we would have made the difference. But we would have contributed to stopping Aycell from from coming. So in that sense, I, I in that for other reasons wished we had stayed a little bit longer. But you can't just do cause and effect vary. Linearly that way. Chris and great neck, you're on WNYC with former Defense Secretary ash Carter. Hi, chris. Question for the secretary slightly different line. But. My understanding is that the United States defense budget is larger than the Knicks seven. Largest defense budgets on the planet combined. And do we really need it to be that? In my mind grossly outside when we are not advocating children properly, and a lot of people don't have health care. Very good. Good question. Fair. Absolutely. Fair question. Kristen let me start first on the defense budget itself. And then the comparison you made between defense and the non-defense parts of the budget. Yeah, you're right. It's a very big budget and is bigger than the next several defense budgets, combined, if there's a reason for that one reason for that, is that all of those China Russia, Iran North Korea terrorism, they're all focused on us. We have those five to worry about each of them only has us to worry about. And so there's kind of a numerical symmetry there. And that's one thing that makes our, our, our us have to cover so many different bases. And that's one of the things that makes the budget, what it is the other things that may sound prosaic to you. But we have healthcare costs that are high. We pay our troops very well, because we have an all volunteer force. So there are lots of things that go into the that the size that by one thing I will say is, and this is a whole other subject. We won't jump into right here, Chris. But I'm sure you can appreciate it. Which is you can't ask for that kind of money if you're wasting any of it, and so one of the things I did fight all the time was wasted. I think you can be waste now now that to get through the rest of artists society's needs. I never ever, and I was asked to do this many times in front of the congress to sell the rest of the government down the river in favor of defense. And I always refused to do that, because I think that education and health care and roads and infrastructure scientific research and development, all these other things that are not in the defense budget are part of the nation strength and future as well. So I'm all I'm for if you like both both sides, and, you know, by Christmas lights. I'm sure a lot of people's lights. The difference that I reported at the top of the segment between the amount of money that the Trump administration if Trump administration is asking for, for the Pentagon. Next year. The difference between that and the Democrats lower number might seem minimal in this game of things. The difference between seven hundred fifty billion and seven hundred thirty three billion still so massive. But the Trump administration seems to have a central paradox when it comes to defense less interventionist in the way they talk. But being the biggest baddest military in the world and throwing more money at the Pentagon is one way to show it. So do you think the Trump administration wants too much money for the defense, and how different is that paradox from past administrations really? Well the big difference between now and let us say four years ago. It's, it's not the size that has increased really that much and you are right. The difference between what is being talked about now is a Republican and democratic budget is, is, is, is tiny. Really would what drove the budget, what in every year except one that I was in the defense department of the last decade. The congress gave the administration less money than it asked for. And this this n Bobby president Republic Congo. Yes. And the reasons were concerned about the deficit concerns about like the kinds of things that Chris, who just called in other things that could be done with tax payers money, so there's been sort of bipartisan gridlock over this subject. That's had more to do with that any kind of upon people take credit for things and say that they increase the budget didn't increase, but you're right though. If I can at one big thing, Brian is that the president does seem he's voice this at desire to withdraw from the world. That makes me nervous because I don't think that's possible in today's world. And I don't think that's good for us economically and politically. But it's also our, our values you gotta stick up for the people who believe the kinds of things that we believe about the rights of people, and you and key can't leave the battlefield, so to speak seed, the world to the China's. Russia's one could believe that though. And also think that the US has thrown its military around too much certainly in the Iraq war. But even in other cases, not necessarily to the betterment of either us or wherever we were. Value. I'm afraid, I'm going to say that rare than you might think it is in my personal view. And so just to take it instance today. I know that people are tired of Afghantistan. I know the people tired of Iraq and Syria. The only thing I will say is that. If you have the patience to stay there, we're not fighting near like we were before is dangerous, and there will be casualties, and there will be fatalities from time to time. It is nothing like what it was years ago. But if you don't stick with it, what will happen in. You noted before in Iraq will happen again when she's there clearer so snapback. Right. But stick with it to what end is it? I mean, this is our longest war now at approaching eighteen years is a you advocating a permanent low level war in Afghanistan to manage the Taliban and the secondary threat that comes from the Taliban to potential terrorism in the United States because we'll never defeat it. So we manage it. Well, I think that there will be a very long insurgency in Afghanistan. We won't be fighting it we're helping we. That's why we built the Afghan security. Forces that their own police, and their own military can keep a modem of order there. And I'm for sticking with the project of helping them to build themselves into force that can can keep a basic sort of peace on the in the country, which make sure that people are launching attacks against us, by the way. It's not so bad to have a friend in that part of the world. Look at a map riding just take any filming giving an example we could not have killed bin Laden if we didn't have a base in Afghanistan from which to launch it think about that. It's nice to have friends in dangerous parts of the world and Afghans a friend now. Why would you lose a friend? One more call. Tim in Utica, on WNYC with former Defense Secretary ash Carter, high Tim. How do you shoot about you administrations recalcitrants or your, it's about warming? And the fact that incentive. Is eighty as well. Security threat. Mash MAG reaches water shortages. All sorts Tim. Thank you. Thanks to him. I'm not an expert on that subject. So I'm not gonna wait into the science just say that I in the scientific community which I'm familiar with is overwhelming both scientific. That is purely theoretical. We know it CO two does and so forth. And also experimental data that supports the fact that we're changing the climate in defense department, that's taken seriously. When it comes to the Arctic when it comes to ocean levels rising effect on countries when it comes to droughts, and that effect on, on countries, I'm a little hesitant to call it a national security problem because, as soon as you do that you, you. Escalate it to the level of warfare. And I don't think that's really where it belongs. We'll take it into account in, in the defense department, but it's not a national security threat per se. Last question. You write in your book about your historic move to open all combat roles to women, but beyond that your overall approach to what you call.
Democratic Republic, Congo And Heidi discussed on Science Friday
"The second largest Ebola outbreak has killed over one thousand people in Africa sweeping through the north kiva region in the northeastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo during the last outbreak in west Africa, the question was could enough vaccine be produced for this outbreak. The good news is over a hundred thousand people have been vaccinated in the area. The bad news this outbreak comes amidst a background of political unrest in the area and the violence is spilling over into clinics responding to the outbreak. There have been a hundred and thirty one attacks on clinics. Heidi contain an outbreak in a war zone. That's we're gonna be talking about. Let me introduce my guests.

"Seven deal. C. D. A L is, we're being told that the evil epidemic is out of control. And then avenue, more times and days and months. Due workers over there have to call and ask for help. They say this latest epidemic, and the conflict over the region of the Democratic Republic Congo is quote out of control. And could become as serious outbreak devastated three countries was Africa for the year two thousand thirteen thousand sixteen. True. It affects affected many other countries. But Liberia Sierra Leone Guinea, a lot of them that trying to think there was one others. There were multiple multiple areas, but totally devastated. Three and they say new case over the past month has increased at the fastest rate says outbreak. Began last year agencies are struggling to enact a political response in areas that have suffered decades conflict, Dev, incredibly fragile health systems, and regular outbreaks of deadly violence. Inclusion armed groups. Jeremy farrar. The welcome trust has called for cease fire to allow health teams to reach the sick and protect others in the community. He goes, very concerned as concerned as one can be whether the absence Quayle scale of west Africa dot none of us know, but this is massive in comparison with any other outbreak in the history of Bulla and is still expanding. It's remarkable. It hasn't spread more. Geographically but the numbers are frightening. And the fact that they are going up is terrifying. Now there's a six to nine months ceasefire broker by the Red Cross or similar bodies if they could broker this, they might be able to stop the spread. There's violence of west Africa freetown-monrovia, but this is on a different scale at it's coming from sources, so right now, how many people have been infected sixteen hundred how many died over a thousand the majority are women and children. We're now at the ten month Mark. I thought I thought it started August, I think we're at the nine month. Mark fatality rate is about sixty seven percent. So the vaccinate everybody tried to contain, and they can't they keep getting the tax. Doctors are being killed is places are being set on fire. And there's areas that are not safe. They I are seat I are CT's who've at three triage units in health, centres burned down have one that the situation North Kivu is increasingly volatile. It's making progress and trying to make progress, these vase -able last week fighters from the armed my rebel group attacked a treatment center. Tembo. This week two patients were killed during an assault on a treatment center Kotla, the second such incident town this month. So if you are told by somebody that you are sick, and you need to come to a treatment center, so you can be quarantined and treated. And you just found out that a couple of your buddies were killed going to one of those places when you be feel like you'll be safe, and, you know where to hide and v wear, you know your territory. And not be at target. How likely are you to leave your safety zone and go? So. They, you know, I'm glad the media's finally giving them attention. But I mean we need I don't know what we need. I think we'd countries in their militia out there and, you know, a nice perimeter clear out the ruble's. Yeah. Do a ceasefire though. The promo ceasefires I always people always ceasefires really not too sure about how that's going to, you know play out now. We're getting some breaking news. A pretty spears may never perform again. Longtime manager Larry Rudolph says a singer may never perform again. He says, as a personal guys are career based on the information I and all the professionals to work with there being told that each basis from what I gathered is clear to me. She should not be going back to Vegas residency. Not on the feature possibly never again. He's manage spears for most of her career going back. I album, you know, hit me, baby. One more time back in ninety nine is that I've been with her for two thirds of her life. I look at her almost like my daughter, very emotional for me. It's really rough personally. I want to find a peaceful happy place. Whatever that means for her. It's not about a career anymore. It's about life. So apparently she scheduled to undergo a psychological evaluation after postponing, her Las Vegas. Residency in the wake of her father's. Recent treatment for ruptured colon says that those spears has rehearsed the show because the residency supposed to start February thirteenth, the Vegas engagement is affecting off. So that's why he started speaking. So they say she's taking time to regroup. Get her head together. She's put into a head of everyone else that I'm proud of her for that. She ever works again. She never works, again my roles to handle her career when she wants a career if he comes back strong and a full desire and passion and wants to do a great is she takes six months, or six years, totally fine. Beats me about a happy place so. She had a very public breakdown years ago. Father became a co conservative, and then there were some issues. I'm not really sure she later checked herself into a healthcare facility from stay. She suffer from stress due to his illness recently and. You know. We are really, really sure what's been going on. They've been very quiet about it. And she does deserve some privacy, honestly. But I see what happens to these people in show business, and she's thirty seven and I it's you can't just quit and so many times, you feel like you're trapped and you shouldn't feel that way, you know, you're a multimillionaire you beautiful you have albums your beautiful, you have talent. But in this type of industry, you have to keep going, and I mean, I have never, ever reached the one, one millionth the start of that some of these people have, but I have been show business. And when you're there, if you don't stay relevant, if you don't continue to put yourself out there. If you don't continue to be a topic of conversation you're done. Now there's very few people that have been able to overcome that. Mario lopez. I think he's still around. I just I, he does spokesperson little lot of TV shows. He's everywhere. Yeah. Musicians like Elton, John share keep coming up with hits, you'll still stay relevant Brittany. We thought she was done, and she made a comeback, Robert Downey junior. We thought was done. He made us huge comeback. Some people they're phenomenal. And then you just don't see them anymore. I was worried about Vigo Mortenson. I think he's one of my favorite actors but he afterward the rings. He kept trudging then he just kept doing fantastic movies. He was picky about his movies. So. But you have to still stay relevant. We discussed the money that it takes once you're famous. No, you can't just go back to, you know, your college apartment, when you're famous, you still need to have you have to have security. You have to, you know, I, I love my call department. It was great. It was wonderful fit. It was good. But, you know, people would come to my house. If I knew where I lived. So now you like, well, you know, maybe a little more security gate. Yeah. But if you're not making money if you're not still out in the public eye. You can't afford to do that. People become rich. I think we'll always be rich famous song out there. Well, no that album doesn't continue to sell you can't live on that. So lot of pressure and becoming a has been is not easy in over here.

And you know, but that's hard. It's really hard to be famous and on magazine covers. And then, you know, you don't work in an hourly job for a lot of people tell I've got a family to support. I'm going to do it. Good for them. You know when the recession hit, and I was dealing with ObamaCare. I told my husband let me go away tables again. I've made good money. I'd love to wake.

"Year the bras Ville declaration was agreed to help protect the area. And so I'm Lewis who led the discovery has been given nearly five million dollars of research funding to build up a detailed picture of the expanse. They're a treasure trove by diversity with some of the highest densities of lowland gorillas in the world. Living in swamp. Very high densities of forest elephants and the rest of diversity of the smaller animals. We don't know very much about. These are really unexplored region. So this probably huge variety of endemic fish and also small plans, but we don't really know anything about those because this is an area that we're just beginning to explore and it is a vast area, which is also unusual in terms of the footprint of humanity's behavior. Yeah. These swamps up pretty inhospitable environments for people, and they're really intact into the huge area. The area we MAC of peatland. That's permanently underwater is around one hundred forty five thousand square kilometers. So to put that in context, roughly the size of England is extraordinary to think of that amount to explore now, you came on the program a couple of years ago, we're gonna put a link on the website. You gave a wonderful description you and you'll call Greta dog of finding this area and exploring it, but you since then you've got a huge amounts of money to go back and really dig into it in a meaningful way when we'd put the numbers together. And we did field work and used satellite data to extrapolate. We saw the north area of forested peatland, but we didn't know very much more about it apart from our central estimate was there was about thirty billion tons of carbon locked up in the Pete, and that's round three years worth of fossil fuel emissions of the entire globe. So really important to keep it there. If we're going to meet climate change commitments. Now, we have a big uncertainty on that he could be much lower than that could be much higher than that centrist. So we really need to understand a bit more about it to more feel work. Explore more areas across the enormous. Region. And then if we want to influence policy about what happens to this region that we need to not only know that it's there and carbon stored and how big it is. But we also need to understand how it functions. So is that Cobb and stable what happens if people go in and log it what happens if people go in and start trying to do agriculture. What's going to happen to the bite of us can happen to the carbon? So we have a interdisciplinary team ranging from ecologists who study the past. So we want to know how this peeling formed in the first place and it began forming around ten thousand years ago, and then slowly pitas been accumulating carbon. It's been taken out of the atmosphere. And then we need to understand better about the distribution of carbonated distribution of the swamp over the central Congo basin. Twin expeditions over a wide area. And then we need really detailed understanding of the processes, so. How much common is coming from the atmosphere into the trees? And then how common is then being transferred into the into the Pete into the carbon in the soil and to do that we have detailed measurements every month. We have people going into this warmth to make these measurements. So it's a fairly continuous. Monitoring. We need to understand not just when I've been there in the dry season when you can easily walk on the peatland we need to go in in the west season. And see what it's like then. So we get a picture of the whole annual cycle. And then we can use this data to build a mathematical representation of appeal, and so we need to build a simulation of the peatland inside the computer. I mean, it sort of goes to the heart of all this biodiversity stuff. We're talking about in the program that knowledge is so important you actually have to go there and do very tedious possibly sometimes even difficult measurements. But that's the only way, you know. What's to preserve? Yeah. We're scientists we have to make measurements. We have to observe the real world as we see it. And then we have to try and understand it and understand the processes to then build our simulation in the computer. And that is sensual because if for example is the climate changes, we need to know if that Cobb and the stool. Is stable and we can only do that. If we build a version of a simplified version of this peatlands inside global climate change models to see the impacts simile. If government policy is to start having logging concessions on some of these peelings, we need to know what happens when you start to build roads through them. How do you affect the flows of water in his reading could you kill Jerry's of peatland by building roads in the region. And we can only do that. If we have these measurements on the ground to start with the description, you gave us time was of this sort of untouched area. But there are people there, but it would be that kind of development that would change things. How true is that rich description is actually their development going on? It is very on isolated remote and currently intact ecosystem, and there are very small numbers of people living because there's not much dry land for people to live on. And then most people official folk in a us. Using the peatlands in a sustainable manner. But once we publish the map, lots of people started contacting me saying did I know about this plan for the future or this other plan for the future. Whether it was potential logging concessions in the Democratic Republic, Congo oil exploration concessions and plantations for oil palm in the Republic of Congo. Now, what we've seen in the tropics in another large area of peatland in Indonesia has been an environmental disaster. On Indonesia's recognizes environmental disaster because they have drained peatlands is enormous carbon emissions and in the dry season. When it's very dry, the catch fire, and when it's really dry like years like in two thousand fifteen sixteen there was fire across Indonesia that led to Hoffa million people going to Austin across the region with spiritually problems now then trying to re wet there peelings to stop those negative environmental problems and to slow down the damage this being done and in Congo Republican Congo Democratic Republic, there's a chance to do things really differently. But that's where by scientists and the wider international community needs to come in and really help these two countries to do development in a different way that these countries can develop without the destruction is going with it in places like Indonesia, so I'm Lewis professor of global change science that leads unit. Versity on a project on very follow one of the fundamental lessons from the diversity assessment. Is that nature is how friend we heard of one example of that from Australia and only the weeds, I should call them. So cold weeds good for the soil because they stabilize it.

They'll be pleased to know that the vaccine that's being developed is ninety seven percent effective. The difficulty is that in the effected communities is only being taken by about ninety percent of people. And it's the ten percent who haven't had the vaccine that are obviously the greatest risk of contracting out of reluctance, are they afraid of vaccine or has it not reached them? There's real fear, and it's the refusal of people and the concern of people about coming.

"We need to talk to you guys a little bit more about new developments with that story. We have the report from the CDC seeing progress towards HIV prevention has actually stalled what's going on there. What we've been doing? So good. Lot of still anti vaccine sediment, people starting to go back and forth and congress. Where we need to go with the vaccine, I don't wanna call another crisis. Everybody says there's a crisis who got plenty of crises, but in the medical world, it's a pretty big issue. What how to approach a more welcoming of our vaccine system, which is pretty robust and pretty effective. I say, but people don't like it. We have some more evola outbreak going on still in the Democratic Republic Congo. But apparently there's been a fire. They say Congo Ebola center was set on fire after an armed attack. This is so scary stuff, especially when we are trying to limit the second-biggest you bowl outbreak that we've seen in our lifetime. Then we have a woman who was bitten by a stray cat. Catfights happen. She went to the hospital. Zach like she's supposed to she got bit again with a fifty thousand dollar Bill. So we need to talk about medical bills talk about how we need to do that a little better. Nobody asked the doctors or the, nurses or the pharmacist of the debt is or any healthcare workers in nurse practitioners PAWS us. I think you might want to so. So we've got a very busy day on the doctor, but never too busy. Take your calls. Your questions your comments at one eight seven seven one eight hundred seventy D L I got through yesterday. It's Nova really week this week, and I got to read the first graders. It was awesome. It was awesome. But I was very very apprehensive. Be able to keep them entertained. I it was good. I opened with booker's. You know, you could always kind of start talking about books, and they love talking about booker's. But the bug that we read doctor says you can't go wrong with Dr stature system, my favorite, doctor, even though he's not a doctor may recipes. But. Can't go wrong there. So the book I read was there's no place like space and. No place like space kind of talked about. It was a kind of a little tongue in cheek way to go through the planets. Mercury Venus earth Mars, you know, my my very educated mother hold on a second by very mercury Venus earth educated mother Mars, just Jupiter served Saturn Uranus nine Neptune, pizzas, Pluto. But they did teach the my very educated mother just served us nine pizzas. And I remember I learned that back in the late seventies eighties. They you know, they kind of learned. I don't know they had some weird names or whatever I think the book was written. Gosh, you're authored I need to find out when that book was written because we have a lot more planets since then. I think that book came out there saying here the nineties, but that doesn't make sense. That doesn't make sense. I think the book came out well anyway. You know, what we talk about space now? We don't even I don't think discuss the nine planets. I think now they have you be one zero two seven nine acts, and they have all sorts of weird stuff. But it was really interesting because as I'm trying to read the book to the kids. Okay. And this was Missouri. Shirvani a survey class and she's a phenomenal teacher. And this Watson not elementary school. And the kids were all sitting on the carpet, and they were nice, and they were really nice when I when I got to co. On the ice. I started talking about Boogers and things like that. And you know, why we have Boogers you guys know why we have burgers, right? Because it kind of blocks the bugs from coming into the knows. I know I had to look it up. Also, he asked so so the book is really sticky goblet cells make this is gooey mucus. It has a whole bunch of stuff. That's a sticky and salty. And so not that I've tasted. But. And so what happens is when viruses and bacteria tried to come in through your nose. It's like a spiderweb kind of weighed like the get stuck and they like Frodo did on that spiderweb. And so they they get stuck. And then you have to blow him out. He's sneeze amount and the bacteria. Come right back out. And that's what we have booker's. Okay. But yeah. All right guys, come on. Six year olds know this stuff. That's what it's for Senate. I said the kids excited and they sit down but immediately. You know, I started thinking to myself. Okay. I hope I can make it the our without having to go pee. And then one kid raises her hand going. I have to go back through and go to. Okay. Well, I go I go for it. No, no. You don't let go. Teaches like go go when I'll bring you guys all to the bathroom. And you know, I like okay now, I gotta go. Okay. You guys go EP, please. Then somebody goes my dog went in the house today. I go I do my dog when PB house shaky shaky lugos peoiple all over the place. So then I kind of wonder that. And so we really did get to the book the till about thirty minutes. Then I started reading the book, right? And I didn't have a reading glasses. So I had the book in front of me. He tried to find out, you know. Butts they'll finish the sentence sometimes on the next page. So I mean, you really have to be fast, and you have to go with the rhyme. To flip through the pages. And then I kind of forgot to show them the book. But I don't think they really care. They really like my doctor outfit, and I really should've brought some like stethoscope staff, and I should've brought my medical antiques that I brought on pawn stars.

"AL Vic, thanks to Genesis communications network for making the show happen. Daniel is working the dials and Vic thanks for tuning in. We really do. Appreciate it. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and on Facebook, the doctor Dolly show. So what looks like the El Chapo jury has reached a verdict, and we don't have it. They say they've reached a verdict. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You know, how that goes? All I get it. Okay. To reach a verdict. So where the hell is it? Okay. The reason why is there's always a big announcement that they've reached a verdict. Then we have to wait for them to actually tell the judge and everybody in the corporate. So I guess the jury as reach a verdict and our just waiting for two and a half months and anonymous partly sequestered jury of seven women and five men sat through this case described as international drug trafficking, one to one and apparently at Joaquin El Chapo Guzman Laura's trial, the prosecution was based largely on witness testimony. Apparently, jurors are two hundred hours of testimony from fifty six witnesses, including fourteen cooperating witnesses mostly traffickers, a cartel associates. That defense attorney dismissed as lifelong liars willing to perjure themselves in exchange for reduced sentences. Whatever that he says now now, it's like, well, I, you know. How do you know who to believe apparently murders were detailed like very descriptively tortures murders. Corruptions Narko mistresses. Escapee's that had to that were naked that rebel to get out of there. Diamond encrusted, pistols, apparently a lot of evidence. Intercepted phone calls. Text messages. Lot of cocaine dropped off. They said potato sacks not in the courtroom. Yep. And they see as IT specialist. A computer geek from Columbia and Rigas. He testified against it. He provided the fence access to text messages cell phone conversations with chapel. Oh boy. I mean, did you guys see narcos that takes a lot of guts? And I I mean faith that you're going to be protected to be able to come out against a drug cartel leader, like El Chapo, so deliberations started I guess Monday was at yesterday. So anyway, they have a bird too soon as we find out. We'll let you guys know. I'm not very. I'm not very up on what's going on. Because I'm like, I said I've been only watching kind of narcos and so right now with narcos, El Chapo is still the driver. So he hasn't really. In fact, they call him chapel. And I don't think they really call them that back then so we're still in the late eighties early nineties where I'm at. All right. We'll keep you guys posted one eight seven seven one eight seven seven zero CD AIBA corruption is everywhere. I mean, and it's, you know, whether El Chapo gets sentenced or not. Look at this or being told that the bowl of vaccine was offered in exchange for sex. Okay. Bowl has killed nearly one hundred kids so far. This is the second. Worst outbreak. We've seen Bola almost one hundred kids one hundred eighty I've been orphaned by the disease. And we're being told that is part of the vaccination program. There were claims that women in order to get the vaccine or being asked for sexual favors. This is ridiculous. They say research by several NGOs, according to the guardian has revealed that a deep mistrust of health workers is rife in the DRC, the Democratic Republic Congo and gender-based violence is believed to have increased since the start of the outbreak. And they say the research was presented a national task force meeting. And they're having trouble controlling this outbreak. And there's a lot of reasons for that. You got the insurgents you got, you know, people not really wanting to come forward to us modern medicine folks and get help because there's a lot of distress you have people trying to flee the area. So it's hard to contain. So they've been vaccinating people. And from what we understand vaccinate people. Pretty well. Until we're hearing that well, there's been again VS happening in this type of stuff where you're only going to give the vaccine if you get a sexual favor is somebody that shouldn't even be. I mean, I it's it's horrifying to think that's happening. So they say the meeting was told them multiple respondents. And once said he had raised concerns over individuals, offering Ebola related services such as vaccinations in exchange for sexual favors the risk of exploitation. They save by frontline evola workers was also mentioned by several focus groups, and you wonder why many of the villagers or people in the city or these towns don't want to deal with right? You know, people coming in and. You know trying to help. They're being exploited many of them. There's eight concerns of raised over reported increase in stigma and violence facing women. So women are blamed for failing to prevent the spread of the disease. According to the research by the International Rescue Committee. They say women who are responsible for caring for the sick. And ensure that children washing your hands faced a rising workload with many feeling traumatized and exhausted. That's at a recent meeting, what participant of focus groups and women are isolated during their periods and are accused of having the virus. Oh, can you imagine? So somebody has her period, and many many societies will have a woman Goater like a hot to have her period. They don't have their period in the house. So women are supposed to be like temporarily banished into other quarters to have their period. Now. I mean in in the bible women are considered unclean. When they have the period, you're not supposed to sleep with them. You're not supposed to touch them. Depend on how religious you are. And so you're not supposed to have sex when you have your period. Now, I've been asked, you know, from a medical standpoint is a dangerous to have sex when somebody has her period, if it's your wife and the medical staff in the medical in the medical realm. You know, there are risks. However, if it's somebody that you don't know, and they have a sexually transmitted disease. Absolutely touching blood from somebody else, could expose you. Right. And then from a why would that be on the bible? Well, I like to find the science and find what sort of, you know, why would certain laws be there and a woman usually kick at pregnant when she's on her period. So if the purpose of sex during biblical times, the was for procreation and a woman is actively bleeding, which means there's a much lower chance of getting pregnant, although you still can't get pregnant on your period. If you off late and there's an egg and your Philippian tube floating around trying to come down the pike there. There is still a chance of getting pregnant, but I don't think back then they realized that and they assumed the, you know, because they knew that, you know, well, somebody gets pregnant mid cycle when they're on their cycle. They're not going to get pregnant. So no reason. So recreational sex was a really big right in the bible. So that's why. That was there. And so now, they say that women having their period appear people think that they have because they're bleeding now, you would think well, duh. They're bleeding period. But if they just see blood on a sheet, they may not know where that's coming from. So not good. So they say the region of the DNC has as long as sexual violence exploitation of women and girls, it's an issue that should have been anticipated. See now, you know, we haven't really been covering Ebola. Mostly in the news because it's all been about the shutdown, and what's been going on with Washington, and you know, the recent election, and I'm the no the Mueller. You just all this other political as I'm more interested in what that was going on with the possible. Second evil outbreak for me, that's kind of important, and when you hear that this happens, and it's, you know, a couple of lines in an article that doesn't mean that this isn't really really happening. I was just at the euro foundation gal, I was one of the MC's that helped. That. Was there and hero foundation? Gal is a fantastic show foundation. They help unmask right? You know, some of the stuff that's going on out there in terms of sex trafficking of assault, and as well as other issues like over medication with, you know, stimulants, etc. And you know, many people just aren't aware of a lot of the bad. It's like this whole other dimension of stuff going on. And you know, we'll watch movies, and we'll watch Netflix like, oh, really that happens. And then we'll be aware. But if we did it do that if we didn't actively do that we would have. No. And so, you know, if Bola outbreak comes to us because of this attack on women and this. You know? Pudding selfish interests. I is probably going to be one of the sickest things that we could see because people are going to die one eight seven.

I think there were people that were overseas came over. So it is spread through bodily fluids fatal syndromes include fever muscle pain, severe diarrhea vomiting stomach pain. So right now, the death toll is about four hundred eighty six and there are seven hundred thirty four confirmed cases of people in the Democratic Republic of Congo tips from the World Health Organization, they are expecting those numbers to rise as you know, it's been difficult to contain because people are trying to flee this military coup. That's going on over there. And they're trying to vaccinate the vaccinated thousands of ten thousand people already, but they need to vaccinate more as cases arise. The average person doesn't necessarily want to you know. Call the brigade to come in and help many of them want to stay away from outsiders, and they may not be very forthcoming with their illness. So it's a it's a big concern. So we'll keep you guys posted one eight seven seven one eight seven seven zero see the AL now, a father of four dies after having a form of man Cal disease. Now this quits Val cove, we talked about if it happens in animals has got mad cow. If it happens in humans Acuff. And did you under brain disorder caused by priante? Now priante is not a bacteria. It's not a virus. It's not a fungus. It's a priante another type of infectious element. That's very hard to attack. And unfortunately, Tony Gibson was diagnosed with he lived in Tennessee. Had two cents twins. And unfortunately, he passed away. He's thirty three years old. I'm not exactly sure how he got it. He started having signs of dementia. And then he starts to become paranoid with hallucinations and the wife took him to Vanderbilt University. And that's where he was diagnosed with it. And it, unfortunately, you know, took them within six months to a year. We don't know how we got it. So there's two sets of twins. If I find a gofundme page, I'll let you know. But this is Puerto by people magazine, and you know. This is one of you, donate blood. They always ask if you've traveled internationally or, you know, been to England during the eighties, and etc. Because if anybody had shall we say exposure to mad cow disease, and a contracted the priante then that pre-owned could unfortunately be living with you. And then unfortunately, cause a this degenerative disorder, and it can be passed to others, which is why we want to make sure that we don't pass blood products. But for the majority of us, it's really rare wants to keep you guys posted on that one eight seven seven eight one eight hundred seventy oh, see the L I, so pain pills. Listen, something that is a constant fight. Khansa struggle how to get pain medication and as we are trying to combat the opioid overdose epidemic. Legislators legislators are passing laws that go after doctors who I don't really think are the main culprit of the reason we have this problem. However, while I can't change politicians minds. Or their political agenda? And apparently, nobody's listening to the patients. Luckily, companies are trying to find other ways to treat chronic pain. So in the annals of internal medicine, there's a abstract that was released this week on a compound did pain topical cream. And they say that they're looking at the efficacy.

"So A Bola the the the civil into a bowl is kill so fast that outbreaks burn themselves out after, you know, a few hundred patients, or, you know, a a relatively small amount of patients because of the fact that kills people so fast the virus has it's hard for the virus to transport hosts, you know, that viruses main goal is not to kill. It's to replicate. So the virus is always searching for a host that it can live in without killing the host, and multiply and multiply in humans a bowl is very deadly. And it tends to kill humans pretty fast. So the outbreaks tend to to burn themselves out pretty quick kind of silver lining of it. But breath thinks interesting about this outbreak is, you know, consider what if this wasn't an a bull outbreak. What at this was an outbreak of a new strain of smallpox, that's not vaccinate -able or what if it's a strain of the flu. And what if it occurs in a similar situation? You know, then you're going to see how. Ow. Political conflict within one country, and you know, different militias can create the stage for a pandemic to occur. So in that case, it's you know, hopefully. I don't know what the policy course correction needs to be to to fight this out. But I think this is really gonna be an acid test of how NGOs and the governments of the country. You're gonna come together and decide you know, how how do we fight an outbreak? When the citizenry is up in arms, and there's militia groups because that's a that's a thing. We figure out now we're lucky that is a bowl that's not, you know, super contagious, and can in fact, twenty million people in a few months, so hopefully, the different policy makers are watching the situation and learning from it. So that when a different outbreak occurs under similar circumstances. They can be better prepared than they were this time. You really have to applaud these groups like Doctors Without Borders because I mean, they're truly putting their life on the line to to help things like this, and to you know, hall to these outbreaks, but as you said six hundred twenty patients in Africa that's going to spread and it's pretty shocking in probably do you. Oh, how many people were infected in the largest outbreak like eleven thousand four hundred. So I mean, it wouldn't be shocking. If we got to that considering as you said, the number is tripled, we're teetering on the edge of a cliff here because where the outbreak is centralized in the Democratic Republic Congo. It's very likely that it could spread to south Sudan and Uganda. So although the US stopper, though, these NGOs have stopped operations for the time being in the areas of the DRC that are hit. They are over in south Sudan are over in Uganda where it's relatively safer, and they are starting to vaccinate the people that are likely come in contact with refugees from the DRC. So that is that's the kind of our our line of defense here to prevent that spread because once it enters the population of a different country than you know, then it that's what really did in the two thousand fourteen outbreak was spread over several countries. You know, obviously somewhere harder hit than others. But you know, luckily, the Abol operate is still contained to the DRC, but we did have one American physician flown back to the United States after a possible Bulla exposure like a week and a half for two weeks ago and the physicians currently at the university of Nebraska medical center, and he's being monitored. Or he or she is being monitored. There's been no information of who the physician is what they were doing the DRC how they were exposed or what their condition is the last. I heard the hospital staff is not treating the doctor as a patient, there'd be more or here. She is more like on an observation status. Just make honor. Yeah. Just making sure he he's he or she doesn't do belt the virus. But there is someone back in the United States that was confirmed a possible exposure confirmed possible who was confirmed to be exposed to it. So the next topic. We wanted to hit here as said we've like an array of topics that we wanted it with Joe to Americans caught fighting for ISIS. Yeah. These dudes. Sorry. I got to remain objective. These guys is like when you read about them..

"C D A L is so CBS did a report on the top health stories to watch for in two thousand nineteen. And we had some doozy's, you know, in two thousand eighteen we have one of the worst flu seasons in a while. We have this acute flaccid my lightest. We had measles making a comeback. Hepatitis A? Outbreaks we go in on a evola from what I understand. They're still monitoring the American doctor in Nebraska who was exposed to evolve when he was working in the Congo. And I think the Congo now has Timor Democratic Republic Congo snapped a six hundred cases of Ebola. So obviously, that's something. We're to want to watch out for the going back to the CBS article. These are the top health stories that could continue on into two thousand nine hundred and we're kind of watching. All right one is this acute flaccid my lettuce. The CDC has been tracking these cases since two thousand fourteen and they did assemble a task force in November because it is scaring the hell out appearance because it's acting like polio. Even though it's not polio. Now, we're talking about wants to children per million. But since two thousand fourteen we've had four hundred ninety one cases about one hundred plus of which happened this year this last year. And it's a virus that we we believe it's caused by virus? We don't know one hundred percent. But we think it's caused by a virus virus, very similar to polio. But we don't think the polio vaccine is helping at all with this one. Which is why we think it's a different agent and people who are susceptible they start out with a cold. And then all of a sudden they become paralyzed. Just like polio will do. But it's not everybody. Don't see brothers and sisters come down with it. You don't see schoolmates come down within its select kids. Freakiness parents out. So. Most children recover, but some advice for life a couple of already guide. So we're gonna be watching this acute flaccid in my lettuce. The other thing wanted to be watching out for is three D printing of human organs, three D printing started becoming a big thing years back, and we don't have enough organs out there. Or donors? So why don't we make our own? According to Dr Rula, she is. I believe Dr Tarun villa? I'm not sure exactly where she comes from Dr. I don't know. She doesn't have a radio show. I do. She says it's really going to help with our organ donor tissue. We know that one hundred thousand people are waiting for organs every year, but there's only sixteen thousand donors. So the idea is that this could be a wonderful thing for that. She said we can take an MRI of your heart create a scaffold structure of exactly what your heart looks like. And then the Inc would be a mixture of cells and biodegradable materials, essentially printed without scaffolding scaffolding degrades over time, and you're left with a three D heart. And so the idea is that this is really perfectly suited for your body because it came from an image of you. And it's it's materials that hopefully, you won't reject because it's made from your own cells. They think they're five to ten years away from plenty of people. We're already using three D printing for hip replacements. Artificial stands, I think we did it with trachea ears and things like that. So we're already using it. Now of ethical concern is this crisper, gene, editing technology. Remember Chinese scientists last month Hejin Q claim to have created the world's first genetically edited baby in November. A lot of people. The science committee community were outraged. They said right now, we're using it mostly in cells in animal models to export treating diseases that could be devastating. So let's say somebody has tastes acts or cystic fibrosis or Huntington's or sickle cell disease. These are things that could cause childhood death. If we could gene edit. We could maybe save that job or adult. So there's a lot of promise with that. And the weird thing is is you, and I may be like, okay. You know, we're messing with nature. Don't do it. You know, let Darwin survival of the fittest happen Nana now when you have bad genes, and you know, what we all have gene issues in our family in my family. We all get diabetes, heart disease cancer. If somebody told me that they could slice out that, gene. So I won't get cancer later. Change, my views on gene editing. Let's be honest here people. If you have a baby. Baby or grandbaby? Could possibly have issues that won't let it live to a. You're you might want to change your view to. And that's that's the problem. We have we get very very selfish. We are really looking at the animal kingdom as a whole, and you know, messing with nature. We look at it, as, you know, look, I'm on this earth right now, I want my life on earth happy, and I want my baby with me. So this crisper, gene, editing technology. There's gonna be a demand for it. So it's going to be a very interesting to see what what comes up. We do have a lot of weird things happening. Like, for example. There's an eleven year old boy in Brooklyn, New York who has died. Because he smelled cooked fish and put him into a fatal allergic reaction Cameron. John Paul reportedly suffered an allergic reaction Tuesday night. What does family was cooking fish? He lost consciousness was taken to brookdale university hospital shortly after. They are still going to figure out what it was. But it was probably an allergy. I'm going to recommend everybody get epipens there. So gosh darn expensive though, these epi pens are so gosh darn expensive. But I think every household better have one looks at you'd never know if your kids allergic to peanuts or fish, and by the way. It's not the first time the first time, they they get exposed you develop these allergies. The second third fourth time I've been stung by a bee once. I have no idea if the second time, we'll be in Affleck's or not if you've never been stung by a bee, you're probably fine. I I'm around. But I can't tell you your second thirteenth or three thousand time. You're going to be okay. So according to the American college of asthma allergy has maybe -nology warns those fish should stay out of areas where fish is being cooked because the proteins may be released into the air during cooking. And people with food allergies like shrimp, shellfish things. Like that they can react my thing with this is is the family would not have been cooking something the kid was allergic to an eating it. My guess is they they didn't know this kid had an allergy to it. And the kid didn't know why they're the kid finally had a first time allergy. That's pretty frightening stuff. So I'm hoping in two thousand nineteen you could figure that out. All right. Paralegal any else have certain choices of where they wanna live. We have the top US cities for millennials. This is interesting. Of course, my computer is not letting me pull it up. But where did it go? Now, come on. Sorry, guys. My computer. Well, I is there a millennial in the house because they're really good computers. Well, I heard that Utah. Lot of them like come to Utah. All right. So I got that one. I remember looking at that Seattle Washington. One millennials are moving to Seattle Washington. They say Salt Lake City is the hottest housing market from belittles people under the age of thirty five Minneapolis and Pittsburgh tied for second place. They see forty percent of home purchase request came from leading tree millennials are increasingly entering the housing market. Hallelujah as they get older. So these are the older millennials and they're looking to buy in smaller markets away from the more expensive, major cities like LA and New York. Why affordability millennials are smart do not underestimate the millennials these guys had it a lot harder than we did. I know it doesn't seem like it because they didn't have to walk in the snow up hill both ways. But neither did we. We just won't tell them that.
