Unredacted Emails Show Scientist Doubt Over Origins of COVID
"Through a freedom of information lawsuit guardian reporter Jimmy Tobias obtained newly unredacted emails detailing both the February 1st 2020 teleconference between doctor Anthony Fauci director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and virologists discussing the SARS CoV-2 virus as well as correspondence pertaining to COVID-19's possible origins After a long foia fight he tweets out I just received a bunch of new unredacted emails detailing his teleconference Emily cop a reporter with the nonprofit investigative research group U.S. right to know has incorporated these findings into an extensive and detailed timeline concerning the proximal origin of SARS CoV-2 She noted that in February 2020 when the aforementioned teleconference took place Several top virologists sought to examine the nature of the coronavirus that would go on to kill tens of millions of people worldwide Although the ultimately concluded in the journal nature medicine at the virus had not been engineered stating quote we do not believe that any type of laboratory based scenario is plausible behind the scenes it was a great deal of doubt Many of the scientists who were attempting to account for the origin of the Führer cleavage site on the virus's spike protein responsible for its relatively high infectivity were confronted with the strong possibility of human intervention U.S. rights in a reported that in January 2020 Danish evolutionary biologists and Scripps research institute immunology professor Christian G Anderson raised the matter of a gain of function study that looked like a how to manual for building the Wuhan coronavirus in a laboratory
CEO Nate Jones Talks About His Company's Xlear Nasal Spray
"Very interesting story here. I want to talk about how the Federal Trade Commission is targeting a company for trying to help people. It's remarkable. Nate Jones joins us, CEO of clear, and that is spelled X clear. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Well, hey, thanks for having me. Tell us your story. No, the story is I'm a founder CEO of a clear spell that are, but it's pronounced clear. And we've been selling nasal hygiene products for over two decades since 2000. And most people are familiar with using a saline spray. Ours actually has xylitol in it. It's a sugar molecule that is actually been shown to block bacterial and viral adhesion of a variety of bacteria and viruses. My father's a physician. He started using it in a nasal spray to wash out the airways of young children. In his practice, that we're having recurrent upper respiratory issues. And so we've been doing this for 20 years. And when this pandemic came along, we had a bunch of doctors that were using it for people with COVID and they called us and said, hey, you guys need to look into this. And so we started doing research and trying to find out what was going on there. And what we found in some of these studies and there was a study that came out of university of Tennessee where they showed that xylitol actually was able to block the SARS CoV-2 virus from adhering to the tissue. And so we started we went to the FDA and said, hey, we would like to do a human trial on this and see if it works. And they said, well, no, you're not a drug. You can't do it. We've tried many times. We tried to go into barda. We've tried getting this information into the CDC. And it's just been ignored.
Steve Deace: The Health Elites' Mess Dumped Onto the World
"What I truly believe happened here Dan is that our elites people like Fauci and the people in the health sector thought they were working with their good old friends this shy coms to come up with a preemptive vaccine for the next SARS or mers level event And the chicom said you bet skipped that's exactly what we're doing over here in the Wuhan institute of virology And one of the most densely populated areas of the world where the guy who runs the lab used to run our bio weapons program You bet skip We're all just one big happy globalist elite family here Working putting up like buckwheat for the plea So that's all we're doing here You keep doing that All right And I think they got suckered into this And thought they were doing something magnanimous and it was a bioweapon from the very beginning And I think once they recognize where this came from you know it didn't come from bats that nest 900 kilometers away from Wuhan All right once they recognize that I think they may panicked They weren't sure how much natural laws of immunology and virology applied to a synthetic turmeric virus which is basically a mongoloid or Frankenstein form of a virus that they created in a lab And I think they panicked And then there was greed Let's go ahead and take medications that prove from hydroxychloroquine to Ivermectin to stunt viral replication in the body and allow the immune system to come in Now it's panic we went from panic to greed Let's go ahead and stifle those medications and set everybody up for a never ending cadre of injections for various maladies with these mRNA shots All the worst impulses of human nature the naivete stupidity of our elites the greed of our elites the sinister motivations and dominionism of the Chi coms All these things got tossed into a cauldron with a wing of an eye of newt then and stirred together And then it got dumped on the whole freaking world That's what happened
Charlie and Dr. James Lindsay on the Dangers of the COVID Mind Virus
"Are not taking seriously this takeover of every major institution of our children of education, of finance, of sports, of language, and then 2020 happens. So doctor Lindsay was doing all this research and then Floyd a palooza in the summer of 2020 unfolds. They only known cure for COVID. Right, exactly. Where if you're burning down a Wendy's, it's better than wearing a mask. And so really a large parts of the conservative movement I use that term loosely were completely taken by surprise where all of a sudden everything was about race. It was about structural inequity, oppressor versus oppressed, and we are still living through the damage that was implemented from the summer of 2020. And I'm not even talking about the burn buildings. That is true. I'm talking about how they saw their moment to change curriculum, implement textbooks, take over HR departments, be able to change hiring practices, affirmative action quotas. They saw a 90 day window when everyone was locked down and cooped up, took over the entire PR narrative to really introduce in my opinion. This is provocative and the media will find this to be newsworthy. I think that mind virus has done and will do more damage than the Chinese coronavirus. Oh, absolutely. Let's not even a question. And as a matter of fact, he calls it a mind virus. Let's exonerate him a moment and make the media have a slightly harder job than just getting the ignore what I'm about to say. This is totally based and this is one of the things I read in the literature writing those fake papers is there is a paper that was published right here. Arizona state university, two professors. Brienne files and Michael Carter, if you want their names, we like to name names. They wrote this paper in 2016 called women's studies as a virus, and in the paper they explained that these ideologies like women's studies and it could extend a gender erase or whatever you want it to be. Are meant to operate. They said the ideal metaphor for what they do is a virus. They say an ideal metaphor for us would be viruses like HIV, Ebola, SARS, some viruses cause cancer. Well, cancer represents true transformative change. So that's good too. Conservatism, they say represents like the immune system. And normally you need the immune system to preserve the body. But in this case, the virus will be good for the body. So we have to suppress the immune system. This is really how they describe themselves. And
New lab gives early alerts for zoonotic diseases
"Monkeypox and COVID-19 have raised awareness around the world of zoonotic diseases that are passed between animals and human beings According to the Centers for Disease Control more than half of all human infections such as malaria Ebola and SARS are zoonotic in origin It's scientists estimate more than 6 out of every ten known infectious diseases in people can be spread from animals Now the Ugandan government has built a lab that tracks zoonotic diseases in national parks where many communities live close to a wide variety of wildlife The Uganda wildlife authority says the country must address the major challenges faced in wildlife conservation and disease control I'm Charles De Ledesma
Author Steven Mosher Explains How China Breeds Pandemics
"A major work is out now. I love these politically incorrect guides. I have learned an immense amount from them. And you have now a written when was it published just this week last week last month, the on off the presses, the publication date was this week, and so the politically incorrect guy to pandemics. I love it. There's no doubt it is now on my list to read because it's you and because it's the subject. So give me, give me some examples of a politically incorrect take on pandemics. Well, first of all, people need to know that China is the great breeding ground of pandemics, especially under the Chinese Communist Party. That back in 1958, there was something called the Asian fluid killed a million people around the world. Why? Because when it originated in South China in the province of guizhou in the southwest of China, the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. It did not see fit to notify the World Health Organization that there was a dangerous new virus on the loose, the tens of thousands of Chinese were dying. And it became a pandemic and spread around the world. Only later did genetic evidence trace it back to China. A far too late to do any good in terms of curbing the pandemic. Same thing happened again. Same playbook, 1967, 68, with what was called the Hong Kong flu. Now, Dennis, it wasn't the Hong Kong flu. It was the Mainland China flu, the people of Hong Kong were furious at being having it mislabeled. But China did the same thing. The Chinese Communist Party did not notify the World Health Organization, covered up the epidemic, let it spread around the world until over a million people died. But the real, the real troubling episode and the one that should have clued us into the danger from China as the great breeding ground of pandemics happened in 2002, 2003. This was the SARS one coronavirus epidemic. We're living through the SARS two. SARS one happened. I began in November 16th of 2002, when a snake cellar in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong became ill with a coronavirus, a snake coronavirus, in that case, not a bad coronavirus. And he died fairly quickly after that. Thousands of people died in China in the months following. And what did China do? The Chinese Communist Party hid the breakout of this deadly coronavirus. It silenced whistleblowers. It did not notify the World Health Organization, and it was only when Canadian intelligence thank God, Canadian intelligence services picked up wire transmissions in China about the spread of a dangerous new virus that the world went to China and said, what's going on and China belatedly admitted that it had an epidemic on its hands
Keith Guinta Describes Why Dr. Francis Collins Should Be in Jail
"Folks I'm talking to my friend Keith junta, you can find him at wine patch dot org wine patch dot org. Wine patch dot org. Okay, the article that you wrote FDA is a four letter word. You mentioned doctor Francis Collins. Now he's somebody a few years ago, I would have said, oh, he's a friend. I mention him as a Christian who is a top scientist in my book his atheism dead. But what has happened in the last couple of years that make you say you think he should be in jail? Because I know you don't speak lately. No, and I really mean it. I wrote a piece around somewhere in January when our whole family had had COVID called pandemic of the aborted. And I named Francis Collins out in that one. While Fauci was being used by big media to hypnotize the country, Francis Collins was doing his handshake tour with all the big prevalent pastors. And they all jumped on board. And Francis Collins, this, I'm sorry. It goes beyond the vaccine. Francis Collins is culpable in the engineering and the gain of function testing that gave us SARS CoV-2 to begin with and they use heart still beating fetal organs to do it and none of this. You know, look, Eric, the FBI is breaking down doors of Friends of yours, right? Brandon struck, and you mentioned Simone gold and Brandon chance lead, why aren't they knocking down Francis Collins door? He is so culpable in all of this. And he infected, you know, I don't want to say the names, but it's all the biggie evangelical leaders you can think of. And it all got passed down to the churches and they were all, I watched church after church. They demanded that their staff get
Sebastian Welcomes Gordon Chang of 'The Great US-China Tech War'
"He is the author of numerous works. You have to check out the most recent being the great U.S. China tech war. He is, of course, Gordon G Chang Gordon. Welcome back to America first. Thank you so much, doctor G. Gordon, let's start. Can I start with a kind of very prosaic kind of layman's question? We'll get into all the very technical and deep national security issues. But in the summer of 2022, did you expect for a nanosecond that we'd be where we are today in terms of China and America after the last two years? It seems as if just one issue. It seems as if culpability for COVID is not an issue anymore. Yes, this is astounding, because we don't know a 100% where SARS CoV-2 came from. 99% it came from a lab, but that's not a hundred. But there is something that we know 100%. And that is that Xi Jinping, the Chinese ruler, made decisions to deliberately spread this disease beyond China's borders. Now, for at least 5 weeks and maybe longer, they lied about contagiousness. They knew that this was highly transmissible human to human, but the told the world it was not. And then they pressured other countries to not protect themselves while they were locking down their own country. You put those two things together, it shows that they definitely wanted this disease beyond

Did Laurie Garrett's Opinion About Masks Change From 2018?
"This is a woman by the name of Laurie Garrett She's at a national academy of medicine Now this is from 2018 That's important This is before the outbreak of COVID right She's giving a speech I saw this on Phil Kurtz feet And she's giving a speech about masks in a study they did in Japan about masks And she inadvertently at the time lets out the real reason why they need masks Now you'll see fear folks fear is their coin of the realm Listen she says it's only a couple of countries that have ever really done large scale studies to try and figure out what might work Japan it may not surprise you as one of them And they in one of their large studies they basically showed that the masks it seemed like the major efficacy of a mask is that it causes alarm in the other person And so you stay away from each other And that's what I think happened with SARS When I was in the SARS epidemic I saw everywhere all over Asia people started wearing these masks and it is alarming When you walk down the street and everybody coming towards you has a mask on You definitely do social distancing You definitely it's just a gut thing but did the mask really help them Did the mass keep the virus out Almost certainly not If the virus was in there around their face the mask would not have made the difference Wow Really That was 2018 is the science changed in that study in Japan and something we know now we didn't know then
You Are Witnessing the Dissolution of the Government of Silicon Valley
"When governments fall, we usually look and we remember, when the government of Afghanistan fell last summer in the Taliban took over, we'll never forget that. When Vietnam completely collapsed when we barely were able to get our troops off. We looked and we remembered. In 1917, when the Bolsheviks took over the government of Russia, they took over the SARS and they implemented their own communist Marxist war against the west, people who were alive at the time and historians they never forget that when governments fall, it's worthy of notice. You are witnessing the dissolution of a government. And not a government in the traditional sense, but a separate type of government, not the USSR, not Cuba, but instead the rule of the administration of Silicon Valley. And I'm not to say they don't have any power. I'm not to say that there won't be any poison pills or traps along the way, but Elon Musk, the world's richest man, who is created by the left, by the way. Elon Musk is a creation of the needs wants and desires of the American left and I'll prove it to you. Has just liberated France. Not France, the country, but the metaphor. Elon Musk is on the march. You see, when Elon Musk has pulled off the improbable, some people thought the impossible and certainly I was cynical and skeptical. Has showed that all of a sudden, the government of Silicon Valley, this extra governmental constitutional order. That the left has implemented, it's now all fair game.
'Warp Speed' Author Paul Mango Shares His COVID Origin Theory
"This. I want everybody to read the book, but this is the question everybody still wants to know about. The origin theory. It seems pretty obvious that if you've got one of only two level four biodefense labs working for the Chinese military in the huge country of China in the city of Wuhan, where the COVID virus breaks out, that I don't know. There may be a very high likelihood of the virus being connected to the research being done at that lab. Tell us from the inside. Why they were such a resistance from people like Fauci, despite him receiving email saying, yeah, yeah, it's probably from the lab. Tell us what the debate was like on the origins of the China virus inside the task force inside The White House. Yeah, obviously Sebastian back in early of 2020. We didn't know what we know now. If we knew then what we know now, I think we'd take a different approach, but I can tell you in February of 2020, doctor Redfield sent a team from the CDC over to China to Wuhan to investigate this and he was with, I think, the World Health Organization members as well. And they wouldn't let them in the lab. Doctor Redfield was very suspicious from that point forward. And I talked to him a couple of weeks ago, and he told me something very interesting in terms of some statistics. So I think the viewers and listeners will be interested in. And that is, there were two prior similar coronaviruses. If you remember in the last 20 years SARS and nurse, SARS was 2003, mers was 2012. And both of them are what's called Zeno zoonotic events, meaning the virus came from an animal to humans. But here's what very important that they can jump species. That's right. But he said the following, he said, in the almost 20 years since SARS in ten years since mers, there have been fewer than 10,000 humans infected with those viruses. He said, on January 3rd, this is in retrospect, I was talking to him a couple of weeks ago. On January 3rd, 2020, when he called secretary azar and me, and told us we have a problem in China. He said in retrospect, we probably had more than 10,000 cases in the United States. And he said, there is no way a virus like this. Now he's one of the world's leading virologists. He said there's no way a virus like this could spread that quickly unless it was engineered somewhere along the way. Okay, I want everybody. We've
Dr. Peter McCullough: Spike Proteins by Vaccines Could Be an Issue
"For a guy like me who's recently hopefully recovered from lymphoma I'm in remission now And my wife was an autoimmune disorder herself and lupus If that turns out to be the case and I understand some preliminary study you know you were very cautious in your approach to it as well But if it turns out that we are producing spike proteins long term What could that mean for people with autoimmune difficulties and people with various types of cancers blood cancers and immune system cancers I think it's going to be a matter of degree If it's one or two shots and it's echo cells and there isn't much passage to daughter cells this thing can in a sense burn itself out or be cleared out over time Bruce Patterson who leaves a company called Intel DX doing terrific work is formally professor at northwestern and Stanford He's actually shown in the respiratory illness that the spike protein is in the body a long time to end but up to 15 months in CD 16 positive monocytes And I did have him on my show and I asked him about what has he seen in vaccinated people And in fact he does have samples He's seen both the S one and the S two segment of the spike protein in humans after vaccination as long as he's observed them So for a month I asked him I said can you predict how long it's in the body He said probably over a year SARS CoV-2 the virus And then the spike protein installed in the body with vaccination It has a persistence in the body That's the reason why people feel bad There's a long COVID syndrome And I estimate is there any other infection that's similar to this He said yeah there is I said what is it He said Lyme disease Lyme disease does an install of the organism called borrelia bardia It takes forever to clear out lime That's the reason why people get this post lime syndrome So I think people who are immune deficient people with lymphoma they've had chemotherapy or radiation or they have other autoimmune illnesses This could be a

"I want to be clear the 22 months of circulating antibodies you discovered doesn't mean it's limited to 22 months when you're saying is we only know about 22 months because that's all the virus has been circulating around it It could be three years could be 5 years could be two years ago That's what you're saying right That's right and we've known this all along Our study out of Hopkins which was published in the top medical journal it was published in jama that's the number one medical journal out there Even though LinkedIn took down my post when I posted my jama study on LinkedIn we contacted the CEO and then they magically reappeared in 15 minutes Wow Like magic This is our top tanks Well this is the phone mission This is affirming all the other studies of which there have been a hundred throughout the pandemic showing that hey natural immunity works for at least a month a month into the pandemic Then two then four then 6 Cleveland clinic Washington University All these big studies kept rolling in and they public health officials kept dangling while we don't know how long it's going to last Yes we do because your hypothesis was wrong The hypothesis at the beginning should have always been that it works until proven otherwise because it works for the other coronaviruses SARS and mers those are the only two other coronaviruses that cause severe illness in humans They work long term That's been studied That's a settled science And we don't see people getting reinfected at the bedside going on a ventilator or dying It's healthy people do not get reinfected and go on a ventilator and die That is always been our observation but they are not seeing patients They're living in an ivory tower We have two centralized of a sort of decision making oligarchy And they're not listening to bedside
Inference: Current SARS-CoV-2 Escaped From the Wuhan Lab
"So I will cut to the chase here as the gentleman goes on The current SARS pandemic has been and continues to be a public health catastrophe The most serious in a century questions about the origins are at once matters of legal financial moral concern For the moment researchers can do no better than to hope for an inference to the best explanation for the moment the best explanation seems to be The virus escaped from the Wuhan law Wuhan was the biggest transporter of viruses to Wuhan from all over age including SARS like viruses from Laos and Yemen Analysis shows that the SARS virus outbreak was perfectly localized in Wuhan all as all strange had been found on other locations or descendants of the Wuhan string The virus been circulating undetected in other parts of China virologists would have eventually noted those pre Wuhan strains and their descendants Even after sequencing over 6 million SARS genomes no evidence has been found a pre Wuhan SARS CoV-2 In other words he's saying it had to come from the lab
Inference: Fauci Lied About Wuhan Gain-of-Function Research Since February 2020
"Three years later following the election of Donald Trump Fauci had played a key role in NIH's decision to resume gain of function research The NIH funded a new study that expanded on the wi V 2015 work with barrack creating 8 novel chimeric coronaviruses When the 2019 SARS COVID two outbreak occurred work at the whiff was underway This is the Wuhan On further research under yet another round of funding It is May 2021 U.S. Senate hearing Fauci claimed that the NIH funded research at wi V did not constitute gain of function We researched He was emphatic in his denial because his memory was defective in its scope And he fed away 2020 email that Fauci sent to his subordinates obtained under the freedom of information act and attached PDF of the barracks sheep paper was labeled SARS gain of function Fauci had it as command virologist willing to offer him their advice Christian Anderson was among them having consoled with his colleagues Anderson sent Fauci and email on February 1 2020 Also obtained under the foia in which he claimed that the SARS CoV-2 that is the COVID Genome looked engineered and was and what is more that its genome was inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory So he specifically got advice
Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Chris Martenson on Ivermectin and a Potential Cover-Up
"We now know from a document from project veritas that major Joe Murphy and the darpa document page four wrote that Ivermectin works throughout all phases of the illness because it both inhibits viral replication and modulates the immune response, things that you've been talking about. This document was hidden in a secret folder. Does that make either of you think that they've known that Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine works this entire time from the top levels and are we witnessing a cover up? Well, we know that hydroxychloroquine is actually in an NIH paper around original SAAR. So classic SARS comes out in 2002 and three. By 2005, there was a paper out from NIH researchers saying hydroxychloroquine is an effective potent inhibitor of this, at least in an in vitro setting and also a mouse model, I believe. So they knew that. They knew that early on. And if you look at the so I call the, you know, this repurposed drug war. So this PR campaign on Ivermectin, the war and I have met in 2021. If, you know, the fact that they waged that war in 2020 through these fraudulent research studies fraudulent papers mentions the YouTube you could talk about. That can be explained by the fact infectious best explained by the fact they knew it
Someone Must Be Held Accountable for America's Coronavirus Deaths
"Nothing is to be preferred before justice. Socrates famously said, which, in some ways, was ironic a man who was wrongly killed because he was trying to educate the youth about justice. A crime has been committed. A crime against humanity over 850,900 thousand people have died. Because of the Chinese Fauci coronavirus, not to mention the multi $1 trillion wealth transfer and the complete changing of our civilization as we know it. And someone or some group or some people must be held accountable for that. And that person who has been the architect the designer behind all of this is on Capitol Hill today. Now Anthony Fauci did a very poor job ending the virus, but he did a great job starting it because he was the one behind the gain of function research. And bob shell knew documents from project veritas run by my friend James O'Keefe show that there was a pitch that was done to darpa, which is an organization run by the Department of Defense to fund potential projects. It was called project defuse. Done by the eco health alliance by doctor Peter Daszak. We've talked about dasik before. This was all about trying to fund gain of function research in Mainland China. It mentions Yunnan China and it says that bat SARS CoV-2 viruses exist that can infect human cells, produce SARS like illness and humanized mice, and are not affected by monoclonal or vaccine treatment. Peter Daszak continued by saying this is back in 2018, new bombshell documents. Bat SARS CoV-2 host jump into the human populations is frequent. These viruses therefore are clear and present danger to U.S. defense forces in the region and global health security. So here was a little bit of a pitch. Basically, Peter Daszak was saying, hey, if you don't give my company $14.2 million to go to China or go somewhere to develop this gain of function research, then China might use this sort of virus against
Dr. Steven Quay: No Updates on Gain of Function Research on COVID, Nipah Virus
"Sir So last time we spoke to you it was a troubling interview I don't mean 'cause you're content with your content was terrific but it was some disturbing things We were talking about some gain of function research the Wuhan lab and some evidence you had indicated that there was some gain of function research potentially going on On other viruses over there one including the nipah virus which has a far higher lethality rate than the original coronavirus in any variant thereafter Any updates on that since we last spoke I'm intently interested in this and I have to tell you a doctor of all the interviews you've done on this show That interview with you about the nipa virus I got hundreds of emails about that People are really scared I think justifiably so Yeah I agree Dan And there's nothing new We completed our investigation We sort of closed the book on it But in December 2019 the one that's through virology was moving the genes of the nipa virus around with what are called vectors which is standard BioTech Basically building a new nipa virus with pieces and the BioTech tools that you use which are called vectors It's probably where SARS CoV-2 was in about 2017 2018

"Employment picture Labor Department coming out saying that job openings rose to 11 million in the month of October That Tim is a second highest total on record and keep in mind this is against a backdrop of more than 24 million Americans quitting their jobs from April to September In what's been called the great resignation something you and I talk about so much That story by the way a Bloomberg big take also featured in the magazine this week Yeah he really good one We're going to do a deep dive in at just a few minutes In the meantime today's changing labor market a major outcome of the pandemic it's affecting the economy And a lot of different ways Carol it's something that we talked about with Carlyle group cofounder and co chairman David Rubenstein A late to think of him as an elder statesman not just an age thing but he's just seen so many different market cycles economic pictures he's worked in the public sector in the Carter administration understands obviously the investment world in the private sector So always love getting some time with him Plus venture capitalist and AOL founder Steve case and appar of his president David Lee talked all about building sustainable brands Carol this is from a panel that you did this week Yeah And keeping with that are Bloomberg business week investigations team also examines the ESG ratings industry through the lens of the rating agency heavyweight MSCI and its findings cast harsh light on what ESG investing actually means All of that to come we begin with this week's cover story It's also a Bloomberg big take One of our most read stories on the terminal as well this week it's about scientists looking for a super vaccine to beat delta aron and all those variants Bloomberg news healthcare reporter bob Langer wrote it he joined us along with Bloomberg businessweek editor Joel Weber What we're ultimately talking about here isn't about just a booster or even anything that's specifically about COVID although it could solve it but there is a very very very early science that suggests that we could actually be able to develop something that looks like a pan coronavirus so that would account for not just COVID but remember mers remember SARS even maybe even the common cold And again let me underscore this early science And if this plays out a little bit though knowing what we know now about being able to develop vaccines it might not be so much that the science would be the thing that would hold us back so much as the economics of it all right So bob take us to Singapore where the science is part of the science is coming from Yeah so we begin the story with a lead of one from one of the world's top bat coronavirus exports A guy named Linda Wang and Singapore has been studying bat borne viruses for decades And one had led the team to discover that SARS I was at one of the coronavirus deadly virus epidemic in 2003 He discovered that came from bats And so when the pandemic started to happen early on he had this idea that maybe some of these SARS survivors in Singapore had some kind of special antibodies that could protect against COVID It looked at them it turns out they didn't But then about a year later those survivors in Singapore the original SARS started getting immunizations for COVID He had this idea like now that this is this rare window into immune systems and it's been exposed to two of these different epidemic strains of coronaviruses and do they have some special cross reactive antibodies They looked again and they did They had antibodies that protected against 5 different coronaviruses that have never been in humans before Feels like a Holy Grail So that was the first sign that this sort of thing might be possible and he and about ten 12 13 other labs and a bunch of smaller biotechs racing to work on this But long term the key question is if this continues to look prompting who's going to put up the money to do it For the big kind of Manhattan Project to do it You know here we are with the variant making its way around the world and the executives of these companies are being asked are you working already on an amateur variant shot If they're giving us some sort of shot every 6 months to attack a new variant that's money in their pockets So incentives aren't necessarily aligned with them creating the shot and all shots All right they have a thing that works right now and they've procedure they know that probably going to work to make something for a new variant at least for we don't know how long these things are going to work That's one thing And then if new variants keep coming even with mRNA which is faster than other vaccine technologies you're still scrambling to keep up You're still going to a virus that races ahead of things So the riskier thing but it could pay off would be to put in a lot of money a big Manhattan style research project by someone to see if this universal thing is really possible but someone has to put big bucks behind it if the research continues to be promising Well the other thing here is there's big bucks and there's some of that NIH has put some of that in there But there's even potentially different technologies Like we've all come to understand an mRNA is one thing but nanoparticles Yeah So that's one of the new ones Blew my mind bob Tell me more Yeah I'd say like the next next generation like vaccines So the idea behind these nanoparticle vaccines which is one of the main technologies that are pursuing for coronavirus shots is that you have a little kind of virus sized particle It's either some sort of bacterial or kind of artificial protein And you can add on little different spike proteins or surface proteins from different coronaviruses all over the top So it looks like the immune system looks like a virus with pieces of ten different coronaviruses on top And that in theory might train the immune system to generate cross reactive antibodies against multiple coronaviruses That's what they're showing in these lab experiments And it's mostly lab experience There's a few phase one human trials but not many That's what they're showing that maybe happening in some of these early experiments And yeah So it's very intriguing That was Bloomberg news healthcare reporter bob Langer along with business week editor Joel Weber Coming out the pandemic

"Get sick in order to develop those antibodies right Vaccines are a safe mimic Of these triggers for protection And what could be better than that It's like having your cake and eating it too So we've talked about words which carry to their detriment at times positive associations like booster natural immunity But what about words that the public has come to interpret is really negative unduly negative like breakthrough infection This is another interesting word where there has long been a sort of research vaccine specific connotation to break through but there's also been a colloquial one Like think of the way that we talked about breakthroughs in 2019 It was like oh scientists make a breakthrough in cancer research It sounded great And honestly in the past few months it has become almost synonymous with vaccine failure which should not be the case but that's certainly the narrative that has been dealt around it But isn't it vaccine failure All you have to do to qualify as a breakthrough case is test positive for SARS CoV-2 this new coronavirus more than two weeks after you have gotten your final dose in vaccine regimen You have to test positive despite being fully vaccinated But that seems a little weird right Because a positive test is not necessarily trivial but it is also just a positive test Our vaccines were designed to block disease especially severe disease and that's really just a subset of positive tests Exactly So if you aren't sick and if you happen to have the SARS CoV-2 virus which causes COVID that doesn't mean you have COVID If this were an SAT question SARS CoV-2 is to COVID as HIV is to aids Yes I think that is a fair comparison of words Yeah And in fact that's something else that drives you a little bit nuts that they're called COVID tests When you're really just taking a SARS CoV-2 test to see if you're carrying it Exactly And I think this is a really important distinction because oftentimes people say oh someone had a breakthrough how unfortunate that they had COVID but that's not necessarily the case because again breakthrough is a positive test It means something detected a piece of the virus somewhere in your body and a test alone can't really distinguish between oh this was full blown symptomatic COVID-19 or a different case which is actually in my view potentially a very optimistic scenario in which you as a vaccinated person or maybe exposed to this virus it got into your nose a little bit but you're vaccinated immune system was immediately alerted to the presence of the virus and thought okay I'm gonna take care of this really fast we're gonna destroy all these viral particles so quickly that this person never even gets sick That sounds wonderful To me yeah When we talk about words being misused clouding our collective comprehension of the pandemic who can we blame Or is the confusion a team effort We don't necessarily need to assign blame This is an incredibly confusing time but the faults certainly does not lie with a single party And I think there are things that we can all do to sort of improve what has been an ongoing communications nightmare since almost day one of this pandemic I would love to see it if experts when they're sort of introducing new terms would just make sure to be really clear about context You know you might have heard this word in a colloquial context but here's what we have used it to mean in science And here's how those things differ It would also be great if you know myself and my colleagues as reporters as journalists as writers were just really careful about how we use these words not mixing them up so that we're not implying that certain things are better or worse than they actually are And I would love it if the public would be open minded to the idea that definitions can sometimes start out very squishy that words sometimes have a very difficult time migrating from one field to another You've said it's hard to unring a linguistic bell after it's been wrong Yeah And I think that's what's key here right After we sort of develop an association to a word it's pretty hard to unlearn it But right now especially when we are dealing with something that is so colossal and so high stakes and so unknown I think we all have to be ready to learn some things and learn some very.

"This is what we were talking about when we were saying. Oh we can maybe use this to look inside of a proton. Okay ed so in this paper you show how to make vortex beams of atoms and even molecules. What did you do differently than previous attempts. So the biggest problem is they have to behave as vase and usual. Classical barnacles are religious. A million balls. They've proper extremely tiny. So what we call it. The brawley bay is very small compared to the size of that object. So first thing that you have to do you have to generate a beam of atoms or molecules. The faith and the brawling uncle sparkles. This large is microscopic and in our case it reaches almost a micron which is several autism minded larger as compared to the size of any of the abe is an angstrom size object and be reached them thousand nostrums. So you were able to increase the debris wavelength. That helps you to increase the wave like properties of these atoms.

"Into some detail in the story about this. Because there's a tremendous amount of confusion about what she actually did remember. I told you she could only grow three bat gerona viruses after having found more than two thousand of them well. She had one that virus growing in culture that she could then test in human cells and she had a bunch of viruses. She couldn't grow so she wanted to take the surface protein from those viruses and put them into the one that did bro in culture to see whether they had similar properties right has a surface. Proteins are important for interacting with cells. Yeah that's how the virus gets into cells. So here's the deep question. The bat virus she had growing in culture. We know how dangerous it was. It was dangerous when put into mice. It didn't look as dangerous as sars. Let's say but look dangerous if you replaced the surface protein with a different one. Are you making a more dangerous virus. Will you could argue. No not really. It's already dangerous you're doing is asking. Does this one have similar properties. You are not doing what the flu vaccine. Researchers did which was took a virus. That could not move between humans and created one that could potentially year adding a function. Or are you just adding a function manipulating functions. Exactly i'm what susan lee's says miss case. She checked in mice and the viruses. She made were less deadly than the one she already had in culture. So you could argue. It's a loss of function study. But all of this circles around the question of put a laboratory have made sars covy to and researchers who've looked closely at the genetics of the virus. Say no because there's no known backbone that you could build on that close enough to sars kobe to to have created it it would require too many changes and nobody had that knowledge ahead of time. How to do this so in all of the different theories that you've mentioned that one has from the beginning been given the lowest level of likelihood and i think over time as people have investigated the arguments of how you would have done this it has become less and less compelling of an explanation. Here we are today with some likely scenario some less likely scenarios. What's going to move this forward. Will we see more research. More sleuthing around in this area of china trying to see where the virus came from where it might have existed in the end of two thousand nineteen while there was great. Hope that the who joint mission could launch what they call phase two studies to look at many questions of natural origin. Those are now on hold indefinitely. Because china has taken great umbrage at many attacks that have occurred recently that involve the lab origin teary the head of the w. h. o. President joe biden have called on china to allow an audit of the labs in wuhan. There were three in all that worked with corona viruses from bats. The chinese government has ridiculed this idea that they will allow outsiders to come in and investigate their laboratories to the point where the chinese government has suggested that maybe this comes out of a military lab in the united states and maybe there should be an international investigation of that laboratory. So it's become a political morass right and so one thing you bring up in your story is well. There are places that are very close to china that have similar bats. Maybe that's where the research needs to continue and researchers are doing that so we have found now that bats in thailand cambodia. Japan harbor related corona viruses. to sars. covy too it's not as though those bats infected a human. That's not the point. The point is trying to figure out..

"Certainly german and certainly wunderbar ethiopia's northern region of tigray. There have been sounds of celebration on monday. The ruling party there the tigrayan people's liberation front door teepee l. f. declared they had reclaimed mckelway the local capital from government troops prime minister abi akhmed said forces had withdrawn because mckelway was no longer the center of gravity. Come it's a model with a witchy gabrielle. Which many red as a euphemism for panicked retreat the teepee elf had long been in control of the region and called the shots in the national government but it was ousted by protests along ethnic lines in two thousand eighteen protests that ushered ave to the prime minister's office a power struggle bubbled away in boiled over last november after the dplf seized control of much of the army's heavy weaponry in response ib sent in the army backed by forces from neighboring eritrea blitz. That suggested he'd make good on boasts to put the rebellion down swiftly. What's transpired since then is nothing short of a civil war and a humanitarian disaster now. The unexpected triumph of the grains opens the door to a dissolution of the entire country or widening conflict. Far beyond its borders is absolutely no doubt. This is a huge turning point. Tom gardner is the economist. Addis ababa correspondent. It's very unclear at the moment. How exactly things are going to shake out. Only a few is on the ground. Which makes it very difficult to know precisely what is happening but we can say for certain that this is definitely the biggest turning point in the war since it began and this is a war that ethiopia's prime minister the committed thought would be over in a matter of weeks and in the end. It's been months and the rebels pushed the ethiopian army out. How how did that happen over. The past few months it's transformed into this grinding guerrilla war which really plays to the strength of the agrarians who have a long history of guerrilla warfare. Their fighters took the hills rename themselves recast themselves as the digression defense force the pdf and restructure themselves under a canoe military command and began the slow grind of wearing down the ethiopian army. The ethiopian army had been suffering significant military defeats. Some defections desertions over the last few weeks. If not months the pdf had certainly been more than holding their own against one of africa's largest armies for several months by last weekend there seemed to be a commutative total chaos and mckelway the regional capital. You had witnesses seeing ethiopian soldiers. Looting banks requisitioning cars from civilians they raided a un office began dismantling satellite communications equipment. All of which points to what appears to have been very disorderly retreat. And what's the situation on the ground in tigray now so. The federal government declared a unilateral ceasefire on june the twenty eight extensively on humanitarian grounds. The spokesman for the ethiopian government on tuesdays at the army could reenter mckelway at any time. If they decide to do you think about a week in reality. This is probably is an effort to mask. Defeat of their forces and allow them to retreat. The chaos over the preceding days conversations with diplomats in private all indicated that this was not plan weeks or even days in advance of this was something that was forced upon a prime minister and upon the army at the last moment of the tibia. They responded that this ceasefire was a sick joke said that they would continue. Pursuing enemy forces perhaps even beyond grows borders by june thirtieth the appear to be in control of most of the region and certainly all the key towns and we spoke last week about the risk of famine in tigray and preposterously timed election. What about the humanitarian end of this up to a million people face starvation according to the latest figures. That's because they've not been able to plant crops in time for the rainy season next month and because eritrean ethiopian forces have not been allowing sufficient supplies of food to pass road checkpoints so the most urgent consent to be now ensuring agencies are able to get access but some observers are saying that it looks like the blockade of tigray is going to continue in fact seems to be worsening in the sense that over the last couple of days. Three bridges over the river which marks the border with the neighboring. I'm horror region have been destroyed for more than a week. Now roads into the region have been blocked as well so in the immediate humanitarian situation. It doesn't look like things are going to improve a tall anytime soon unless that blockade is lifted pretty urgently. And we've spoken a lot about this war and its potential to spread into a far wider more regional conflict. How is that looking. In light of the events well the immediate consign regards eritrea. Eritrean troops have been involved in the fighting in tigray since the beginning of being involved in some of the the worst atrocities in this war as a the pdf of made it pretty clear that they regard as is the president of eritrea as fair game now and that a march into eritrea to route the eritrean army and possibly to remove as is from power. It could be part of the strategy going so that does certainly raise the very worrying prospect of a war spreading right over the border into eritrea. But there's also the concern around sudan. Ever since the war began in november in tigray tensions between ethiopia and sudan along their shared border. Which is very close to tigray have escalated. These tensions also relate to the construction of a giant dam on the blue nile. The grand ethiopian renaissance dam. Abby said shortly after pulling troops out of tigray that one of the reasons was to refocus attention on the question of sudan disputed territories and protecting the dam from anniversaries. Those advisories are clearly sudan and further downstream egypt. So in any case this conflict doesn't look to end anytime soon sadly. Not there is the prospect now of the pdf pushing into eritrea. There is also ongoing activity fighting on the western side of of tigray towards the region of. I'm horror whether a disputed territories which i'm horses occupied at the start of the war there now trying to push them out again and then you had the longer term question. Which is all the to grants fighting for independence now. The political leadership has been wary of that question for some time has refused to endorse. It can openly like certainly there are those within the leadership and absolutely grass roots level. Many who who are firm staunch advocates now decrane independence. So is this a battle for independence. That's going to be one of the next questions. And if the answer is yes that's going to have enormously profound implications for pia for the federation there are other ethnic groups in ethiopia which of their.

Okay so we don't know all the benefits because it's still being tested outweigh the known and potential risks again.

Mary search Saying in coming from a national security background is quite odd that up engaged in control activism Because of the culture of national security studies that is supposed to take this cold calculated wrestling approach to stick know if national security. he's about efficiently protecting citizens within a particular state than how national security is provided is just as important so if a national security is provided by the ministry means is inefficient and actually haunted the state that we must consider other alternatives to provide a national security focusing on human security on the threat. Matrix that individual human experiences mixed. I wonder standard actually held security food security what security a are much more important determines oft efficiency of the progressive national. That's a really interesting point. The fact that national security is synonymous with terrorism and weapons. In you know more how come you know. There's no mention of food security and health security and all that kind of so please. Yes answer precisely national security has been hijacked by militaristic the standard and the individual human has been left out deprioritize revenue and this is because National security over time has been coach accepted as rushing out to purchase more than has become synonymous with the decision to go to war has also become synonymous with secrecy as a win. States are avoiding accountability and they invoke national security as a reason why the contemplates conveniently for states take avoid accountability and different states around the world have learned this understood this incoporated this very limited militaristic on stem the national security as militaristic and so they've continue to perpetrate fat because it's convenient for retention of power so we have oh terrorism for example we care about the war on terror for example we look to terrorist occurrences that have happened. The world overwrought Country if we look at a loss of life that has occurred from terrorist. Incidents contrast that to the loss of life have occurred that has occurred from medical practice any calendar for example who practice go any other car accidents or other threats by far outweigh terrorism as predominant lost the predominant threats to human life but states still pray omi tires the terrorists and the anti-terrorist narrative because of something cold securitization in the sense that when a state wants to enjoy much more free reign to exercise their power over particular issue what been noticed in international securities that states begin a process of securitisation so they points to a particular subset of the population for example say bird this particular religion that much more threatening to the saints these particular languages these particular orientations agenda giese also threatening only to prioritize in deal with this before it destroys everything as the escalating label the term security issue in order for it to be given priority within the place co processes and so we'll talk about terrorism acts national security accent even the prevents strategy can these are ways in which these results of the securitization of subsets people. Now isn't an interesting that when we talk about terrorism the almost instant synonymous the almost instant association will make his islamist terrorism. This is as a result the targeted political a attachment of the religion itself to tactic of warfare. That has been used by very many groups over the years so for example there's been many terrorists occurrences in the united states have been carried out by white individuals or pride nationalist organizations but it never cold terrorist attacks. They're called lone-wolf attacks or they're blamed the psychological health of the individual to carry out never necessarily labeled with the terrorists and they just goes to show that national security and by extension the content of terrorism can be his routine politically charged their benefits to to security on something and take it out of the royal normal politics so that they stink this security giants an issue such as terrorism can now deal that issue outside the public guy this luckily national security so they'll have to divulge information with regards up to that a. That's a really really fantastic. Way of of breaking down national security as a as a as an overarching seem so tell us more about the campaign that that is a bit so the campaign. the fleas weapons campaign essentially is a recognition that perhaps we need to look a lot more at human security of individuals and so this year as world became much more aware of the dangers posed by the covid nineteen pandemic The un secretary general kofi for a global cease fire told conflict in the world because of of the emerging carruthers because of the dangers.

It seems like nigeria as well as many other places in in in the global south haven't essentially figured out a form of democracy that actually works post colonialism. And how how does nigerian moved from. Here is nigeria. How do how do you reform this instead. It's breaking spotting made because nigeria not to learn in retaining very efficiently. Another day repressive tactics serve tech inherited from colonial times. But i must say that many countries in the global south.

"Happened has opened a judicial panel acquired. But that's a story for another day. The core is. This is a great trae similar to my findings stats. Nigeria's of national security is so politically tainted that there's perhaps the limits to the to physical violence that the government would miss out against citizens organized police force to crush any sorts of political opposition. Or any sort of headway and sort of disturbances to the stability of the central regime. The leckie massacres. is actually a product of this another Where the government remains wholly focused control of political power in the center but delegates with a very freehand the the fighter repression pop any political dissent to specialized units will get the army would apiece force who accountable to anyone domestically or internationally are commit. Violence insists however depletes burger. Listened british colonial rule. So we're ause unit police squidward where them all politically align to Give him artie or they just politically aligned to just funding from the central government. They are allegiance to whoever is in power that point in time until the niger. Police force before independence owed. Its allegiance to the british governor. General at the time and insolence switch to the prime minister and said these forces are up don't necessarily have any political leanings towards parties as long as a party can take over control of the center. Their allegiance is to the continuation of the units fire funding arm and proximity to power. I constitutionally does Is their remedy for for this. Because obviously i mean i'm telling you this because constitutionally we have the almost identical problems in iraq the difference being that we don't have a specialized unit. The infants is that we have so Constitution that allows you know these leeway for for certain abuses of power to happen and so. Do you think that there is a remedy for this or do you think that is something. That's become too ingrained in the political sphere. In in in nigeria. Bring up the constitution a because niger tying has had four major revisions to its constitution. And at this point in time we're acting another nineteen thousand nine of metro constitution saddam. Last time we had an overhaul the interesting nigeria's constitution is that through the strings of military dictatorships firm nineteen sixty six all the way to nineteen ninety eight these dictatorships came in an either suspended the constitution completely or so to be bright entire constitution points in history where the supreme sovereign power was a federal military governed military council or prime minister or president of these institutions in their pollution actually entrenched and enshrined the interests of those parties though were able to violently take over political power and so when we talk about international talk about human rights and the rights of peaceful assembly and rights to political asian in nigerian is override in provision privatized stability of prioritize mitigating or minimizing sort of disruption to the country and so these provisions were actually introduced by military declarations miniature acts in the ridge leaders and a lot of these things have actually been passed into the nights nights so looking for remedies to this fisk repression of political dissent within the nigerian constitution. Itself is actually a futile exercise. However negeria is state parties cape a lot of international treaties agreements exist in a world where there's north instead become crystallized over time that meant to protect human rights in the individual agreement injury as pocket to is the room that which essentially establishes international criminal prosecution and protects the rights of citizens especially citizens so they're protesting peacefully. Now even let me difficult to propose political reform domestically. Niger is still constrained. But provision up to robes Until going into a peaceful protests up with meditated aid of shooting thou protesters with live ammunition goes against his grave violation of the room. Statistics that is why people have cold for national criminal investigation again. Like the nigerian constitution. International criminal investigation isn't something that can effectively deterred a government carrying them for precipice titties. As matter of fact is carried out much more grievous violations of the In recent years heard a buckle haram the terror deterrent organization in northeastern major when butter haram disintegrated into a full blown insurgency. Many parts of northeast injury puts under emergency legislation under state's emergency and according to amnesty international Lot of society organizations in humanitarian organisations the ground that would bring violations carried out against human rights of not bystanders sympathizers. Took around and face of it. It doesn't seem like a big deal those award Insurgency but why is it permitted that a government can some early execute in flattened villages that they suspect of being sympathetic to the political aim. Cement insurgent group take an active potent insurgency. And if there's a suspicion perhaps people have the right look. Perhaps they do have the rights to face. You process it. The rights to be investigated through judicial system. It shouldn't be that the states can go in there and carry out. Extra-judicial killings international criminal court at least since the twenty fifteen almost once every year has had a reason to open preliminary investigations into the niger government but the thing about international criminal court is that the principle of complementarity this principle states.

What's in it by opening up the latest research a much wider audience.

The people getting voted academic research. Even if he's just as listeners so we can truly make education a democracy so thank you so much joining joining the show and take the time to leave us. First of all can can also get you to start off by introducing yourself and for background about you and so that can get a What you'll let you thank you very much. Haven't ear say elimidate samuel ago by older shorts and my background in the research was sexually purpose on national security strategy an international security overwrought caller traditional academic Word the sense that i sort of shifted insert convenience on a few observations. That made growing up in nigeria. Upsetting initially started off recognizing journey by looking at international diplomacy in looking at how tall can be leveraged to give some sort of order in the world away to mediate. States interactions with each other. But over time. I discovered that perhaps some of the moves to vice. It issues case studies that we looked at had lots to do states essentially being very defensive and hostile with regards to anything that appears to be a threat to national security and this hostility was usually animated by the acquisition of lots of military hardware Buying up lots of arms small arms light weapons but also locked conventional weapons in many cases or in some cases nuclear weapons and say migration international law eventually pushed me closer closer to the concept of national security under one had but also to the flow of weapons and international tries to control these weapons but also how tried to contain constrain us states And that's pretty much. How it got to the national security ops control in my paychecks. He says and then this at so s university of london informed National security ulcer announced Activists inside a lot of my work. Outside of academia is focused around trying to get states to be much more accountable and to be much more.

I'm a academics new in these subjects. Don't just studied them but actively you try to make change on it we'll try to sort of initiate the conversation about making change am which is like you know. Typically in the past wasn't the case in and and i. I've interviewed academics in the Have made this argument that. Why should why are we. As academics expected to have a political activists noise by are we expected to be this neutral but others neutral mean and so was really refreshing to see what you're doing. I wanna i wanna go into. Before we get into the details of the activism of that. I wanna ask you about some growing up in. Nigeria and obviously nigeria. Right now is dealing with his own issues with saws and nestle. So could you sort of paint the scene to the political scene to odious sub Background about nigeria country in. Haven't got to out that. The of violence fire the police army and nigeria was the form of a former british colony gained independence in nineteen sixty and upon gaining independence. Store number things we inherited from the colonial administration. First of all was the precursor to notice the nigerian police force in shaping perform today we had a set of constabulary which was utilized by the british government's at that time twin enforce control over major in territory. The second thing we inherited from colonial administration was this based confederate style government where the regions much more potent political centers a central government and this was part of the british government divided strategy. And so how does this relates tepe dancehalls movement today upon gaining independence within six years of indian independence. Two of these dynamics up first of all the regional power centers and second of all inefficient repressive police force that was developed by british to maintain control in nineteen sixty six. We had our first military. Coup because regional centers of political power were not satisfied with the political autonomy. They were receiving the center. In this case the eastern region political region was friday dissatisfied with the northern dominates had a political power structure at the center until we had a major the time. I'm who was Will who carried out a military coup and assassinated mostly northern and western political leaders in other to establish a lot more political autonomy for the east. This is perhaps one fatal mistake that led to the niger. War of less than a year later because it was reprinted attacks. From conan's of major with houses soldiers and your soldiers from the west carrying out reprisal attacks to install their matt in the center and it led to a free for all the crew culture wherein you're much more likely to gain political controlled country via militarized needs providers estimation date upset leader than through deep political process.

So it's kind of like you know the square. You're thinking horizontal lucien and and kind of moving down the value chain of owning the product as well so i think my point being. I think it's a very immature market right. Now with micro mobility.

Hopefully if we're lucky everything goes in the right direction. I think is just the beginning so either. An interesting idea would be if voi- or any of the other brands such become the actual aggregated to other services smaller services that could connect to their platform. That's one way of doing it or if a different type of company comes just like lime date with uber right. I don't know. I assume that started in the. Us where you could actually book aligned through your ober service. We have that in stockholm at least so they're kind of connecting to each other anyway the big players so there is some type of flexibility In terms of how you access customers and kind of how you aggregate okay. That's two companies aggregating but that's one step towards becoming moving closer to aggregation. So i think a. It's a super complex business so there's openings in the value chain for things. That boy shouldn't be doing that. They can't be best at maybe. That is you know getting all the customers in. Maybe the best Running the platform b. There's already aggregation happening in kind of very immature levels in between big companies and and maybe maybe smoke and see..
