Author Melissa Cain Travis and Eric Discuss How Life Came Into Being

"I'm talking to Melissa Kane Travis. She's the author of science and the mind of the maker with the conversation between faith and science reveals about God. Let's get specific Melissa. There are a lot of exciting chapters in here. I never know where to go first because I like it all, right? But the idea of how life came into being from non life. I don't remember if you deal with that in a whole chapter if you just touch on that in the book. But what they call a biogenesis. Do you talk about that? I do. There's a chapter in there that talks about the problem posed for naturalistic origin of life theories. When we consider the specified complexity found in the DNA molecule. And for the listeners who are familiar with doctor Stephen Meyer, who you mentioned earlier, he's written an entire book on that, right? Signature in the cell. So I drew on Myers work for that chapter. Well, it's interesting because I came to it a little bit through Stephen Meyers, but also through doctor James tour, who's also down there in Houston at rice university. And what I always find funny is the fact that we never talk about this. about it. But if you go up to your average person and say, okay, life appears on earth, single celled form 4 billion years ago. How did that happen? I think most people just go what do you mean? I don't know. How did it happen? It's like you would think that that would be the most basic question. Science. Okay, science. The most basic questions. There's life. We are life. How did life come into being? And it seems like the more we know about the complexity of DNA, the complexity of single cell, the more we know that we have no idea how life came into being. But that's a pretty big thing to admit. So nobody's really been very public about it, at least on the non Christian side of the

The Paradigm Shift From Science to Religion

"Stephen, you believe, and I also believe that we're at a we can call it a tipping point a paradigm shifting inflection point in western culture where over the decades, the arguments for God have become so strong that with books like yours and others, there's a shift going on. Now, you're really, you're in a world where you talk to actual scientists, do you find that scientists are out there are quietly saying yes, this seems clear, the arguments in your book return of the God hypothesis are compelling. What do you, what do you hear out there in that world? Yeah, I do think there's a shift going on. I was very pleasantly surprised that some of the endorsements that came back from for the book from scientists to whom the publisher had sent it. And very prominent people and Nobel laureate, you mentioned professor Jim tour at rice university. It was one of the top organic chemists in the world and nano and nanotechnology specialist. We've had them. Scientists recently who's come to affiliate with our work at discovery Institutes with top paleontologists in the world who sometime between 2009 and 2016 had a big rethink of the materialistic Darwinian perspective that he had long held and embrace the theory of intelligent design and eventually publicly announced that he had become a theist and indeed even a Christian and be Gunther Beckley a great German paleontologist. Where is he in Germany? He was at the Stuttgart museum of natural history, the largest Natural History Museum of curator there. It was made somewhat unwelcome after he announced that he supported intelligent design. Well, does this get to the idea though that you still have it's just fascinating to me that there are people that say, no, no, no, you can't talk about that. I just find this fascinating because look, we saw this in Galileo's day, right? Galileo says, hey, I've got some evidence here. He was a Christian. Anybody who wants to talk about that in my book, he was a profound Christian. And he says, look, look at the telescope here, the evidence, and they said then, no, no, no, we can't talk about that. That's unseemly, that's preposterous. It's offensive, it's blasphemous. The same thing is happening today. A guy like gunter Beckley tremendous credentials, tremendous credibility in that world. The moment he seems to side with you or people who are theists, suddenly the German scientific world says we don't like you anymore. And also Wikipedia. He was a great paleontologist until he announced this, and then his page was erased. But, you know, I'm really undeterred by that because this thing is catching on worldwide. And it's a bit immodest but for people who wonder, go to my web page, look at the book endorsement. It's amazing the breadth of scientific the breadth of the scientific opinions that have been lodged in favor of this idea that science is pointing

"Welcome back to one on one with David Goldman. David, we've been discussing these issues for so very, very long. We have also alighted on your recommendation, numerous times. You visited us in The White House and made it first then I think that we need a new space race. We need that speech at rice university from a president who just gets America back into some national program that gets us to a Pinnacle of research and development. I got to ask you last week we had the launch into space of a 90 year old American captain Kirk Bill Shatner made it on a what was it 5 minute space ride? That's not exactly what you're talking about is it, David, you're talking about something big. Yeah, live long and prostate. But you're talking about something a bit larger than Jeff Bezos is vanity project. It's how you know. Seth, you and I have been talking about decoupling at least some parts of the U.S. economy from China for years. As of last month, U.S. imports from China are up 30% since 2018 when Trump started going after them. That's because the body administration has thrown trillions of dollars of people and giving people an incentive to say out of the workforce, people have money to spend, but we can't find the workers because of the disincentives created by government programs. So we've got to buy the goods from China. China's exports to us are booming. They are now equal to 27% of our manufacturing GDP. It's an astonishing number. That is. We need to rebuild American industry. We've got a business elite that doesn't care about manufacturing, doesn't care about manufacturing communities or workers. We need to reverse

"The superconducting transition right. So that's different. That's different than the other case that so it's a to go back to my ballroom. Dance analogy It's not that you've lost the it's not. It's not that everyone's lost their partners. It's just that each each couple is no longer paying attention to what the other couples are doing right and so there here's the real attractive idea. You know if the pairing is really quite robust than boy. Wouldn't it be great if you could figure out how to reach in somehow and synchronize everybody up if the pairing survives up to room temperature than now. You're talking about well. We have a different problem now. now it's not. It's not a question of forcing things to pair. It's a question of forcing things to be coherent though. And so that's that's kind of interesting bit anything about this without just thinking. If the cycle the temperature many many times would be a difference in this system. Not really no. I mean okay. If you cycle the temperature up to very high temperatures high enough adams actually move around. Then you've got problems. But but i mean if you just go back and forth across the transition nothing. Nothing history dependent happens because the we means but did not synchronized so so the challenge is could could you take the structure and leasing recent guys it somehow right so there are people who are playing games with doing things with light or or or Otherwise trying to somehow couple into the pairs and get them to all dance together now. The experiment we did is basically. I can give you another analogy for that too so We use what's called shot noise which is The the noise that results in the chart. So you if you apply voltage across a some electrical and what you have the current flow you get some average current and so we used the idea that this is how you define resistance right..

"This is one of the challenges with high energy physics these days. Which is that. You could argue feary there. With the exception of the discovery of the higgs boson which was in fact sort of expected yards reasons for have not been any big experimental surprises in high energy physics and so the theory community has been a bit decoupled and it's kind of gone off in pursuit a whole lot of exotic things hoping that there will be evidence for some of these things coming down the pipe. I mean. I don't want to sound like you're totally unmotivated. They've got good reasons for thinking about the things we're thinking about. But but there really is kind of a disconnect between between theory and experiment at the high energy level in certain ways that is not true in you know in condensed matter or in atomic physics where there's much more of a back and forth between theory and experiment. I think these days the economics of the machines in clayton deficits is sort of limitation rate And so still advances dances and you know he still acquiring the next context entity levels will so that that's really the question right so so how far. How much more energy do you need before you expect to see interesting surprising things. If the answer is three acts that's easily conceivable right. If the answer is thirty thousand x. And you need a particle accelerator. The size of the moon. Then you start thinking to yourself okay. There have to be different approaches to these problems. That might be more practical implements right and so this is in fact why there are all kinds of clever ideas out there now from the world of both condensed matter atomic physics about you know. Can we do precision measurements. Can are there other things we can do to infer about more exotic physics without necessarily having to build a five hundred billion dollar giant particle collider. I am reading doug. This wasn't book. I think the subdue Desktop corrado something they did wide i people stanford i mean. There's there's a number of people who have thought about Very compact ways of of making particle accelerators wakefield. Acceleration is a phrase that crops up And i think there's progress being but the fact is that these days you know. The large hadron collider is really where all the businesses At the at the energy frontier of particle physics it. The other extreme of this of course is astro-physics. I mean there are astrophysical sources of very energetic particles and so there are some beautiful experiments like ice cube down at the south pole where they're basically using the south polar ice as a simulator and detecting cosmic rays and neutrinos from highly energetic neutrinos from space by the flashes of light given off inside the polarize excellent.

"I think You know it does one. One aspect of condensed matter is that it is led to some realizations in recent years. That that Maybe there are organizing principles that we weren't rethinking about before that we need to beware of so of this. There's a lot been a lot of work in the last ten fifteen years on topology the importance of topologies. So you you know. A lot of people have kind of a hand wave. Notion of what's apology is saying. That basically You know it's kind of the the connectedness of things. It's the branch of math that that tells you that. A donut is different than fear because a donut has is a surface of genus. One and a sphere is the surface of gene zero and and that the idea that a donut can be continuously transformed into the shape of a coffee mug. Because you've preserved the number of holes right these. These kinds of ideas have really come to the foreign condensed matter in the last ten or fifteen years and again there's a lot of interest in first of all there's just the the scientific insight that boy we really haven't been thinking about some of these things the right way But then there's the possibility that these systems with interesting hidden top logical properties might really be useful for things. There's ideas about quantum computing involving top logical. Qubits there's there's ideas about materials where along the edges of these materials. You could get chart. You can imagine having charged flow with very very very minimal dissipation because the scattering that usually gives you things like ordinary. Electrical resistance is sort of forbidden because of top logical recent. So it's very interesting stuff. Yeah i don't know much about this done so think materials don't typically think about apology or geometry. We certainly think about geometry in the sense of the spatial arrangement of the atoms. I think the topologies stuff that comes about. Is this one again. One reason why it's challenging to explain certain aspects of condensed matter general. Audience it the apology. That comes up in. These systems really has to do with basically the properties of the electric wave functions like the quantum mechanical states of the electrons. And that's not something you can see with your eye right mean condensed matter. We're used to this idea that like look. I can tell the difference between a solid and a liquid. And i can tell those. Irs distinct states are distinct phases and with very crude tools. I can tell whether.

"With certain materials. We are extraordinarily adept at controlling their properties on very small scales with almost atomic precision. And that gives you tremendous control that allows you to achieve remarkable properties that so-called naturally occurring materials. Don't necessarily have right. And so that's that is some of the attraction is. Is this idea that really. How are the building blocks go together and how they enter the interplay between them if you can if you can you know. Make the equivalent of atomic legos. You can just put together anything that you want You could really. You could really do some impressive things and solve some impressive technical problems. So celebi getting close to their dug in a specification for immaterial. That doesn't exist. Today can be custom-created so so the phrase materials by design is something that occurs sickly in the kind of the research community right. This comes up every every twenty five years or so. There's a big push that says we should work on materials by design. And i have to say we are closer to that now than we ever have been this this comes. There's a number of different aspects to this right so first of all overarching all of this. You are still governed by the actual rules of chemistry and physics. So you can't arbitrarily make anything because you will find is that certain structures are just energetically entropy favored and so you know the history of of Materials physics for example is replete with predictions of. Oh if you could make the following compound it would have it would superconductor room temperature or it would have these amazing properties and it just turns out that you can't make the atoms stick together that way and there are some properties that are that are just because of physics there. They tend to be incompatible with each other so You know it's very hard to have something be an incredibly good electrical conductor up to high frequencies and yet be transparent.

European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado

"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before

"You talked about quantum dots already Was that the so. Yeah so the novel structures. We just found these novel structures so he wrote a paper about him. One though was the fact that so this gets a little bit more into the plasma resonances those belts so if the cross section of the bill to square the plaza in residents as green it happens at green wavelengths or green frequencies five thirty whatever nanometers And then if it goes elongated it happens more in the red so seven hundred nanometers or so and we found there are structures where it would just evenly shift from green to red so structurally the belt is going from earth square cross section than it's spreading out into a wide cross-section optically when you look at it. It's this nice. Little thing that changes colour so in a sense we thought this is kind of like a spectrometer but a very different kind of spectrometer trauma take lights of all these mixed colors and you shut it off of like a some called diffraction grating and that makes it reflect out a different angles. But this little plasma. I think we call it. Applies monitor on oprah said that in the paper but what we could do is say you wanted to measure how different plasma wave links enhance like quantum mission. You know if you make your plasma energy match your quantum dot energy than you get more light out. So i think one figuring that paper was we took one of these Taper belts we call them and covered it with quantum dots and just looked at the mission in it was brightest where the quantum dots were resonant with belt somewhere between red and green so it was basically like a structural way to measure the the exhortation spectrum of the quantum dots of thing. We've never really thought about being able to do. But it's something that this weird structure let us do so up potentially some applications Event right yes. So let's if you wanted to proven Mid if you wanted to really ideas would miniaturize something like you needed long term. Maybe we can make it higher resolution and everything but but it wouldn't require like the long arm of hitting grading and then when you hit a grading you gotta let the light spread out for very long distance. So this is sort of like a spectrometer. You could put on a chip because you don't need that. That separation is a completely different kind of way to do it. You don't need the the angle difference from the greetings very small so you to let it go for a long way to get the wave separated where this is more of a direct separation so can applications to set consideration Maybe ten to sculpt space space if you sort of had these on something where you could you could detect which part of the belt was getting excited than potential you. Could you could really shrink this and have sort of a chip level spectrometer. So i can. I can imagine that. Yeah yeah. I wanted to go into One of your recent jason analysis by enhanced rahman's catherine So rodman scattering. What is the romance cutter. It's a special kind of light scattering so so if you think about When light scatters off of an object than can we start over it depends on the cody.

And college experience, complete within person courses and opportunities. But breached its contract by failing to provide those services. The university still charged students full price. Tobias wrote in the suit. Plaintiff and the members of the class have all paid for 20. It's a class action, or maybe they're seeking certification for the class. Have all paid for tuition for a first rate education and on campus in person educational experiences, with all the pertinent benefits offered by a first rate university. Instead, students like plaintiff were provided a materially different and insufficient alternative, which constitutes a breach of the contract entered into by plaintiff With the university. Well, that's a very, very interesting approach. You've got 7100 students. Attended Rice University. In the spring. Of 20,020 and then the fall later in the year of 2020. Where they were not allowed into campus. But paid Mm hmm. So it strikes me. You might have a different case for the spring and the fall. Because by the time of the fall They probably were able to say. We're most likely gonna have Only virtual classes. So if you want to come here for the fall, you'll be taking virtual classes. But for the spring Remember Corona virus was probably on American soil in December. But the Chinese and the who were lying to us, which is why Joe Biden has rejoined the Who, It's very important doctor. Fauci said. He is honored that we're back member of the World Health Organization after they lied to us about Corona virus. And people ended up dead. Okay? The lead Chinese and the Who lied and people died. Remember that? So if you started school In January, coming back for the spring semester, the second half of the count of the academic year. And then several weeks later. They stopped the classes. And you on, Lee did virtual learning. You could argue They didn't deliver. That which they were supposed to deliver to you. Which is an on campus in class learning experience. Now. This could turn out When you When you bring a case like this This one students one semester. They're trying for two. But let's say it once didn't one semester. Might be $20,000. That's not enough money to make. This lawsuit makes sense, however. If you could get a class action, you have to have a class certified, which means You have to show that other members who were similarly situated and similarly harmed. Represented by you. They signed over to you. Now you bring a mass case. And when you do that the legal fees on something like that. Now, instead of $20,000 per student or whatever it is Start running the numbers based on 7100 students. But if you can get a class action Against Rice. You could probably expand that class. If you could get it certified. Who all private universities. Maybe even all universities period. I don't know if you can. I don't know what the governmental Restrictions against suing the government. If it's a university in this case, but let's say it's private universities. You paid all this money to come and get this certain education that they then don't they don't provide And so if you if your immediate thought is well, yeah, but it's not their fault. It's covered. I got that. But if you paid for an event You know you rented a hall. And that whole you read in the hole and the hole closed down because of the, uh coded Had I spent half a million dollars of my own money. Paying people back who had deposits for events at the RCC because they were having bar mitzvahs and Kingston yet as in weddings and all that that I had to pay back just out of my own pocket, because that's what you have to do. Right? So that's a very, very interesting question as this thing plays out And.

interview With Emily Reiser

"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saw marquez's here. And today i have the privilege of hosting emily riser. She is the senior manager of innovation community engagement with the texas medical center. She supports clinicians and administrators at the tmc member institutions as well as hundreds of startups and other corporate partners engaged with tmc innovation. You guys have probably heard some of the healthcare entrepreneurs we've had out of the center. They're doing such incredible things in her previous role at emc she was a strategist for two tmc x. Cohorts she contributed to the redesign of the tmc axe program for twenty twenty and started the tmc alpha program for local innovators prior to joining tmc innovation. She led and venture a nonprofit organization supporting entrepreneurship training and company formation in the life sciences. She has directly contributed to business development projects with dozens of local life startups and supported the formation of four new companies. So her heart is totally in healthcare. Emily earned her bachelor's in biology from emory university and her phd in bio engineering from university focused on drug delivery for cancer immunotherapy. So you can imagine that. It's going to be a really cool conversation and emily Really really grateful that you Carved out some time to be with us today. Thanks for thanks for being outcast. Thank you so much saw so excited to be with today. Yeah and so you have such a cool experience right you've been in the healthcare startups and you know you've kind of gone pretty far in your formal education with bio engineering. And now you're in this area with this like incubating these cool really forward thinking companies that are changing the game. so what is it that Inspires your work in healthcare. I think a lot of us in healthcare are looking to have an impact on how patients are being cared for and that certainly inspires my work as well. And i always knew that i wanted to be in the healthcare space but didn't know how to do that while also making the most impact that i could so when exploring -nology that took me into research which you know if you can develop something that s- impacts you know thousands of people then really feels like you've done something meaningful to impact patient care but of course you have to pick something good you can spend your whole life Working on something. That doesn't end up doing that. And so i've moved more close to the patient closer to the bedside throughout my journey and now i have the privilege to work with folks that are directly saving lives. Impacting how how systems are ryan and making things easier for clinicians hospital administrators and then of course the patients to access the care that they need. So that's what. I love about my job right now. Is being able to work with somebody different kinds of people within the community you know. The house systems themselves clinicians entrepreneurs so every day is different but every single person is working toward making patient. Care better love that you're so mission oriented in that love their by two as you as you think about the work you guys are doing. Tmc is texas medical centers innovationlab. And so i think it's a good opportunity for folks that don't know about it to educate them about it but then after you tell us about it let us know a little bit more about how you're adding value to the healthcare ecosystem absolutely so the texas medical center is that's really interesting. Nonprofit organization that was started seventy five years ago through a gift from the md anderson foundation and we don't provide health care so we're not a health stem but we provide infrastructure that sits under md anderson texas children's houston methodist small herman and twenty one other different clinical institutions as. Well as you know. Other research institutions universities rice university of houston etc and so our role is to be the connective tissue and dr collaboration between and among all of the different institutions. So right now that looks like data that we publish every day around You can go to our website. I you and see how were clobbering across all these institutions to share updates on hospitalizations and other things that are relevant within our hospitals or doing a lot of work behind the scenes to try and make sure that everyone is cloud reading and and sharing best practices. And there's been a lot of really cool work coming out of that but five years ago we also started this great innovation initiative which combines space talent physical resources that all come together to provide different actors to entrepreneurs that can work with our health systems. And so it's an incubator. We have a partnership with johnson and johnson j. labs and body and other corporate partners to create density around making startups possible and always relevant tied back to the clinical application clinical outcomes.

In fact, if you go to the grocery store and you look around at all the products More products have been cancelled and Jason Alexander sitcoms One of the university's That's now under the gun is Yale University. Yale University, was founded by Elihu Yale, who was a slave trader. And a lot of people who are against cancel culture. And against all of these movies, television shows, comedians, products, whatever statues that are being cancelled. Say alright if the rules are if you do something that crosses a line by the standards of today that you are cancelled, then let's apply it equally across the board and let's get rid of Gale university. Leading that charge is the host of I'm right on Pluto's TV. He's also a host of the nationally syndicated Jesse Kelly Show that's based out of Houston, Texas, Jesse Kelly, welcome. It's a pleasure to be here, John and to fight back against the systematic oppression. Well, Yale University is top on your list. Why is that? Well, let's be honest, I I and that's what we're supposed to do now is to tear down. Everybody left the name off of every military base that he wanted anything to do with the Confederacy. That's fine. If we're if we're hands, slavery and high place But there is no way a university be called Yale in the United States of America when its name for the slave traders just you just pull it out. The hypocrisy of that is unbelievable. There's a major university called Yale. That and traded played his stuffed black people in the bows of ships, chained them up and mended and tortured them on the way across the Atlantic. And to this day, there's a school everybody has, you know diplomas on the Wall Day whether Yale T shirts they have to yield hat on So you're turning down. Such is a celebrity. Yale has not to go they need there. There and down. There have to be distributed as reparation and yell should raze to the ground or become an all black college for water. 200 What should happen to Hillary Clinton's diploma. Well, wait, Gail. It's so much worse. You not only went to Yale and celebration of displaced traitor. She also has returned to Yale to give speeches. So I don't look, I don't think she should be thrown in prison. I don't want to be a victor. A dictator eating like that. I do think we should be forced to publicly burn her to Yale. The father in front of everyone else, issue a public apology, and I think she should have probably 80 to 90% of her wealth and re dispersed black people for what he's done. Well because she profited from that degree from the slave trader University. She took that law degree and she got a job on Capitol Hill. She talked about it on the campaign trail. No one profited from L. A Who Yale's money more than her. Nobody. Nobody and look, Caesar. I'm just I'm trying to be a modern man. These are the of our time. He's of the standards of our time. Then that's what we're going to do. Looking not only Yale, apparently organizing a march against Rice University, right, you were goingto We're going to address the university system. That is pretty somebody people who seemingly hate this country we have right here. Wilson and life founded twice, he said in his will. Then that was in his will. That Rice should be for white. Only that's a direct quote for whites only. And to this day, there's a gigantic I don't mean the little one gigantic statue of William and Right on Rice University of Robert E. Lee's that You have to come down from that man. I heard that William Rice was so racist when he went to P. F. Chang's. He wouldn't even order brown rice for the You know what change does actually sound really good. Now I'm in a mood. Mm SD what other universities have sorted pasts. Well, it is a wooden unless this has been a tragic my inbox is full of them now and university brown, another one of these schools, brown, the brown family were slave owners. They usedto actually, and I'm not making this up they used to rent Black people to serve them at their board of trustees meeting. Duke has a really ugly past Georgetown found a diamond named John Hill, You slave guy. Universities must be razed to the ground and have their endowment sees it. I will. This is the only way Get the justice inequality we need in this country, and that is to attack anybody who has ever not lived up to the high standards of 2020 Has Yale University responded to you. They have what they have done that was locked down their social media accounts, have it Last time I checked. You had post anything in three or four days. They were deleting old tweets, but they're not going to be able to escape the long arm of justice. Now. I don't know if you've seen this, but the state of Rhode Island is even talking about changing their name. Well, look at that. Just a state of Rhode Island client Rude Island. Absolutely Shoot. New York was that Duke of York? Something like that. Who's a slave trading guys too? Really? Anybody in New York in any way is celebrating slavery That includes The New York Times who was 12 You know, super high res this butt and we'll print edition of The New York Times celebrate the slave trader. It's just I think they're gonna have to go. They had to give up all their money and resources and making your kind building blow it somehow. You know, it's funny because you started this whole thing out. It's kind of a quasi parody, but it's picked up so much steam that if they do judge themselves based on the standards they judge everyone else with they are going to have to buckle and they are going to have to change their names. That's what makes it so great. I never felt the flames with leftist Has actually taken this and run with it, too, because obviously it's cheek. It is apparently, but the truth is a matter It is these air truths upset these air that if we are canceling people and removing because of some slave owning great Then we're gonna have to address the American University system and the fact that they are getting eaten alive by their own little monsters that they create it delicious steaks. It's really great to see the predator becomes the prey, isn't it? And I say this as I'm looking at a headline right now about Jimmy Kimmel, who really is of all of the late night host the most loathsome of all, because he's doing a very hard core political show. Where he is essentially attacking half of the country viciously on a regular basis, but does it under the guise of Oh, I'm just a comedian making jokes, and I just make jokes about whoever's in power when he clearly has an agenda. Well, there've been a bunch of videos of him in blackface that have been popping up, including him, playing Karl Malone, the former basketball player for the Utah Jazz.

S. responded initially to this disease how confident are you in the U. S. taking a responsible thoughtful evidence based approach to returning to something like normal well I think what I'm saying what Dr Fauci sane with some other experts are saying you know there's a great deal of consistency we're not sure yet which activities should be resumed because until we get a a vaccine are the almost everybody's had the risk of a rebound will be there we don't know about seasonality we don't know how much the younger part of the infection chain but as we follow the numbers into may and see if we can get them down to a very low level then in parallel this debate about which things have benefits to society and can be formatted so the infection risk is very low which thing should we resume and I I do think manufacturing construction a lot of things will do but large public gatherings may have to wait until we have that vaccines I know you're investing so much money in the specific research into Copa nineteen and have more broadly invested so much of your wealth into addressing global health problems more broadly I'm there are wealthy people who say this is the job for governments and international bodies like the World Health Organization not my job so taking a step back what do you think the right balance is between the responsibility of governments and international organizations to address these problems versus the responsibility of the ultra rich well the the responsibility to protect the public and have been prepared for disasters like this that's totally government responsibility so you know what I spoke out of twenty fifteen that was really speaking to governments you were lucky that a lot of the innovative work at making vaccines quickly this approach called the army platform our foundation and others have finance that and that may be why we can get the vaccine in eighteen months but in the end protecting the public you only come rely on the government most governments wouldn't get a super high grade in this case but I do think after this pandemic people will take it seriously and and they'll use the innovative science that philanthropy is driven forward to make sure we are ready for the next epidemic that leads to the last question I wanted to ask which is in the longer term after this crisis subsides what do you think the world needs to do to make sure that we are more prepared for the next one well imagine that the diagnostics had been available in a month and that the therapeutics and four months in the vaccine in less than a year when you have something that grows exponentially the speed of those responses make all the difference you know a few countries really jumped on the testing and prioritized it properly and they are not going to suffer nearly the deaths or the economic a loss that most other countries out we'll go through we should make sure that we have those platforms ready to go in and the sciences such that's very doable and and so we won't have to see this is something that's coming again and again and again Bill Gates is co chair of the bill and Melinda gates foundation thank you for speaking with us today thank you early on in the US corona virus outbreak an info graphic from the centers for disease control and prevention made the rounds on social media it depicts an impressive taxonomy of facial hair styles from the French fork to the chin curtain the Zappa to the walrus each with a red X. or a green check mark Antony's now contrary to some reporting it was not coronavirus grooming advice for the general public it was a two thousand seventeen graphic meant to advise medical workers on fitting N. ninety five respirator masks but the idea that beards spread disease has a long history in the U.

NYC it's great to be with you thank you as of yesterday there were nearly sixteen thousand confirmed cases in Suffolk County can you give us an update on the situation on Long Island as of now if those numbers continue to rise significantly every day we have more confirmed cases just on Long Island than any other state in the country except New York of course and New Jersey so they the caseload is significant we are also importantly continuing to see hospitalizations rise and we are seeing a rate of infection that is greater than New York City greater than New York state at this point so we've suspected for a long time that we were always eighty seven to fourteen days behind New York City and and the worst is sick of all of course for us is that death toll continues to rise and over the last several days has gone up dramatically do you see demographics like racial or ethnic breakdowns of cases do you have that data we don't have that specific data that is very important that we understand that we we do know that there are certain areas of the county where we have higher testing rates what were people of calling hot spots and there are some factors at play these are communities that can be harder to message to to connect with other language barriers there is probably higher density in some of these communities that lends itself more to the transmission of the virus so you're talking about talents like brand would that are predominantly Latino and I and I hear you're making bilingual announcements from the health department I can you speak about any other out reach that you're doing yeah that's exactly right we're doing robo calls we're on Spanish radio and that's where we developed this hot spot testing program from because there's no better way to be able to penetrate into the community they're bringing people to get tested and then to hear from Spanish speaking health professionals about what you need to do how you need to isolate and stay at home we think that is the most effective way to try to connect with what is really traditionally a hard to connect with can unity let's then talk about the house hold on many immigrants living in crowded rooming houses multi family homes how do you stop people in those living situations who develop covert nineteen symptoms from spreading the virus to their housemates that's the thing if somebody's testing positive and they're living in a home where there are a number of other people our assumption is that there are other people in the house who are infected so the message that we will be giving to those individuals is isolate stay at home there are likely other people in the home who are infected they should isolate as well if they do have to go out for any reason even a symptomatic where that piece covering and maintain social distancing the entire time they are out but stay at home as much as possible that's a message we've been communicating broadly about we don't think has been penetrating at the same level now they're going to be hearing that messaging out one on one from Spanish speaking health professionals you mentioned opening corona virus testing sites where are they going to be located so we have opened a testing site in Huntington station R. Brent would as well we are opening a site on the east stand in Riverhead and we are looking at additional sites to cover some of those other areas where we do see a higher rate of infection in communities of color how about funds for people who are out of work but who may not be eligible for unemployment or federal stimulus money because they are undocumented what are you doing to help those people we were working with the United Way which is setting up a fund to help the most vulnerable in our community with encouraged people to donate their and we're working closely with a number of community based organizations in the county Suffolk County executive Steve alone thank you so much for joining us and stay well thank you to be safe support for WNYC comes from hospital for special surgery now offering virtual visits in orthopedics sports medicine and rheumatology physical therapy sports performance and more learn more at.

Trump administration delivers mixed messages on coronavirus

"Did you hear today one senior administration official blamed the national security staff for bundling the early coronavirus response already blaming somebody else other aides blamed the vice president's office which are taken the lead in the response and the this comment was made by one White House official the office of vice president seems way over its head way over its head they don't know what they're doing separately some H. took issue with the centers for disease control and prevention director Robert Redfield who dutifully stood by trump during his Friday visit to Atlanta agency and commended the president for his decisive leadership and of course trump for his part continue to denigrate the media the Democrats on Twitter for hyper over hyping the coronavirus now just to let this finger pointing reflect some of the broader confusion and mixed messages the health experts say hamper the trump administration's early attempts to staunch the the corona virus outbreak in the U. S. I do agree with that or not it it's fasting Douglas Brinkley presidential historian professor of history at Rice University said what has been remarkable is that trump has not had a global crisis like this during his presidency so far this in his leadership moment and he was ill prepared for it instead said Dr Brinkley trump wants to create an alternative lane of blame and of course you know the White House spokesperson the judge dear said this this is just more effort by the fake news to create panic among the American people and to speculate on palace intrigue the president has been leading from the very beginning to protect the health and safety of the American people and that is his priority the president has also been very clear that the vice president on the coronavirus task force are doing an incredible job leading the whole government approach to the close coordination with state and local leaders

"Really. So I was just trying these things out on him. And when I said are we taking moon shots? He said that's what we're doing. By some say, the moon cures Astro. On the Ted stage. Nineteen sixty two at Rice University. JFK told the country. About dream a dream to put a person on the moon by the end of the decade. To go to the mall, and no one knew it was possible to do. But he made sure a plan was put in place to do it. If it was possible. That's how great dreams are. Great dreams aren't just visions their visions couple strategies for making them real. At X. I have the incredible good fortune to work at a moonshot factory. We use the word moon shots to remind us to keep our visions big to keep dreaming. And we use the word factory to remind ourselves that we want to have concrete visions concrete plans to make them real. But I have a secret for you. The moonshot factory is a messy place. But rather than a void the mess. Pretend. It's not there. We've tried to make that our strength. We spend most of our time breaking things and trying to prove that we're wrong. That's it. That's the secret.

"Studies at Rice University, a guest here is. Brilliant guy. Really good guy. Yeah. Okay. So yes. Yes. And Jeff said, Diana. That's just a little too weird for me. And I thought you know, it is really weird. So I just met another colleague in academic who is a again at the very top of this field is scientists at big universities, incredibly respected person. And so fascinated with the topic. And so I said, you know, what this is the kind of person that other scientists would actually want to me. So I asked and I call him. I I write about both of these people, by the way, the first one takes us to the site is Tyler and I name master the main character in fight club. Tyler. And. The next. Yeah. Tyler during the next guy is James. And so James is the scientists, and I tell Tyler I say I'd like you take games. And he says, no, yeah. Sorry. I'm a no one else has authorized to get just you. And so I said, okay, I'm not gonna go. And then I knew that see with Google James and find that this is the perfect person to go because of his skills, and so again, a couple of days later, he writes packages. Okay. And so we both go James that I go we get were blindfolded in the car. Am I trust James? He's an academic near. He has the same kind of academic transparency. Rules that I do I'm not yet trusting of the other man, but he's he seems you don't wanna surface, he's incredibly accomplished and successful, and nice and charming, you know, all these things. So we do we go out there and takes about forty five minutes afterward blindfolded to get. Get to the place, and we get out there. And then we take and by the way, we have to wear a lot of protective clothing because apparently there are a lot of rattlesnakes out there. So we're wearing boots. We're we're in kind of parkas because it's really cold. But the sun is out there. So we've got we've got to protect our skin. And so we and we go out there.
