US FDA Recommends Booster Jabs for Over 65s

"Few days before the official start of fall. What was billed as the summer of freedom has come and gone on the national mall more than six hundred thousand flags one for each life loss to covert the sea of white representing unfathomable and devastating toll. Just three months ago the. Us daily case average was nearing a record low about eleven thousand new cases. Now we're averaging about one hundred forty three thousand cases per day reporting roughly one million cases over the last week and while president biden hoped an fda advisory panel would recommend boosters for all vaccinated americans on friday. The panel voted to recommend boosters only for those sixty five and older or at high risk of severe disease. Dr anthony found. She is standing by joins us in just a moment. But we begin with the latest on that fda recommendation and what it all means for some of the most vulnerable as the school year gets underway. It was just last month at president biden. Laid out his plan for booster shots. These booster program is start here. September twentieth pending approval. Fda cdc committee outside experts that approval did not come for everyone and while the handled did not officially vote on it they do support including vulnerable populations like teachers healthcare and other frontline workers in this first round but when it comes to ending the pandemic the message remains clear to vaccinate the unvaccinated. While seventy six percent of adults have received. at least one dose the millions of unvaccinated americans are fueling hospitalizations and directly impacting. Some of the most vulnerable children

Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers

"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend

Will Booster Shots Make a Difference?

"On wednesday. The president's top covert advisors cited a few early studies to make the case for boosters from new york from nursing homes from the mayo clinic. Plus there was some data from israel. I see two things. I i see a few canaries in the coal mine. I do see that. The is Specially from based on the us data. There is a diminishing of effectiveness against mild moderate disease. Here's michelle will get. The director of the centers for disease control and prevention on wednesday talking about a mayoclinic analysis of more than eighty thousand vaccinated and unvaccinated. People like we saw in the new york. Dana vaccine effectiveness against infection declined over time. In this case from seventy six percent to forty two percents for those who receive the pfizer vaccine and from eighty six percent to seventy six percents for those who receive. The madonna vaccine are also see that things seem to be holding up against severe disease including hospitalization. More or less which seems great but seems quick which is good. The other thing i see is whenever things are that nuanced. I want to see the whole ishii be process unfold. Who needs the advisory committee on immunization practices. It's a group of fifteen outside advisers. Doctors nurses public health specialists. Who make recommendations to the cdc on vaccines on cova. Yes but on other things too and the committee has a standard deliberative process. That anyone you were me can log on and watch the encouraging thing and something that got lost in a lot of coverage was that the actual verdon of things that came out yesterday was that they are doing this for planning purposes to start with september twentieth bending authorization from fda and bending the advisory committee on immunization practices review. So i as a scientist. I had weighed for the review because things are that nuanced.

"Welcome back baseball family. Thanks for taking a quick break with us and sticking around we are going to jump back into our atlanta. Braves mount rushmore. We've got at least two names to come. We don't know where we'll overlap for the next ones we already had one overlap. This time. it's very common for us. I'm sure we'll overlap. I mean we'll save it for the last lecture galop on that one because it's pretty common consensus an going to see what it is. We're all suming. That might be my next one. Actually should we save it because we know what's going to happen. Well let's say yeah. Okay all right all right. You want to go next okay. All right so my next one is actually dale murphy Yeah it's not that one for me. Del murphy is the best player to never make the hall of fame. Okay that You know someday he might make with the culture club. Yep the ever that. I don't remember the name is what we call him a culture. We do so del murphy. The two time all star back to back all star in thousand nine hundred nine hundred eighty-three sorry not all star and ep. A big deal now. Not all sir back every piece but seven time all star four time silver slugger five time gold glove and i feel like that's a really big deal that he's not in the hall of fame he had. He had a good peek from eight hundred. Eighty seven where he was off starts to like. I said seven eight seasons. Yeah the though here brig. I think why. He didn't get into the hall of fame because he's a lifetime to sixty five hitter. Yeah that's probably. Why three ninety eight. Three hundred ninety eight home runs the over the course of eighteen year. Career dab batting averages low for the era. Yeah but here's the thing though. Kate outfielder first baseman. Those are offense first positions. Yeah but del murphy was a catcher. Yeah he was. He's he spent a first two years of his career i wouldn't say majority but he spent he came up as a catcher kit which is a defense. I position extremely very much. Yes you know the until recently. And that's only because those guys are anomalies. Something's going on now. Like buster posey's billick was like the really first big power hitting catcher which is funny. 'cause he's not that big and he's not that yes has yeah. I feel like if you walk down the streets of posing an average job. They would look right. But if you see gary sanchez your debts and cracking huge dude. he's huge. yeah. But i i like having come up as a catcher. That offense was not necessarily something that they focused on with him to sixty five catcher as get decent so maybe send him into law famous catcher. Anyway no the that hastert in and spend time plate but two time. Mvp though i like that alone is enough. Is it not as like obviously unanimous. Like but he could he could have gotten seventy six percent of the votes. Should've gotten seventy six percent of the votes ran. I'm inclined to agree with you. But again i grew up when he was playing. And yeah you know. We got to see him all the time and he was a big deal in utah for some reason. I don't actually know why. Because he from their. Where's he from..

S6 E9 - How to identify what you are passionate about

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers has left you frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of the craziness that is post military life so you can turn your post military life into your best life. Money was aaron perkins a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos and on this episode of the show. I want to talk to you about identifying your passion in life and how you do that. That's a big question. I think we all have even if we haven't put into so many words like how do identify my passion in life. It's like well aaron. Who are you to talk about identifying passion. Well number one. I've identified my own number two. I developed a process to do just that net processes called the nine line framework which i put into the book called resolve. That is just a step by step guide for you. The veteran to help you to rediscover purpose meaning and you guessed it. Passion in your post military life before i dive into the episode today. I want to take a few minutes until you a little story. I myself love stories. I love hearing them. And i love telling them and this story is really near and dear to my heart because it's about my son. His name is christopher and you may have heard me talk about him on the show before But this story. I've never actually shared on the show because actually just happened about a week or two ago and my son christopher almost twelve years old. he's a normal kid. Not a huge fan of school. Really good in school gets really good grades Does everything well is i. I don't know if i would say popular. But you know people like him he. He's just a normal kid. And he. And i we have this unique Father son relationship. I mean we joke around a lot. We have a very very similar Sense of humor. So we have memes that will share back and forth and that's actually across our entire family that we can laugh at together and everything but this story about his passion for video games. Now you might be thinking well yeah. He's eleven year old boy. eleven year. Old kid boy girl the one but he's eleven year old kid and he loves video games. Yeah what kid doesn't we're here's the thing. He is not just passionate about video games. He is passionate about tech in school and his technical classes studying python programming language. He studying java script and his his his little techy and he loves the technical aspect of it. Well there's this that he has for one of his platforms. And it's called beets saber. You may have heard of it. It's on playstation four for vr. And it's on oculus quest to In fact every year. we're pretty much every year. We get a family gift at christmas and this past year. The family gift that we all could use was the oculus quest to and that is a a virtual reality gaming system. That's fully wireless but the headset on. Hold the controllers and you could just play play games fun and while he has been absolutely just going nuts over this thing having so much fun with it. Well again. this game beats saber. You can create your own levels if you modify the game and there is no right or wrong i should. There is a right or wrong way to do it but there is no manual that you can look at and say okay. This is how you modify find the game. So he gets on discord. he's he finds Some experts who know about modifying the game he chats with him for hours. Some of some of them are as friends he's he's played games with everything and he's talking to them. Like how do i modify this game. What do i need to do. He figures out the programs. He needs to us figures out how to roll the game back to a previous edition. Now he knows how to launch the game with these modifications so he can play his own levels on the game. Keep in mind. This had nothing to do with school this nothing to do with any requirement. This was just something that he wanted to do something that he is naturally gifted at and naturally naturally passionate about and that is that's what that's one of the things i wanna point out here. Today is your passion in life is most likely going to be something that you are naturally geared toward you are naturally good at and maybe even it may even be something that you have spent a lot of time practicing and preparing at and you've spent a lot of time working on developing that skill. It could be anything from woodworking to the medical field to an to. I'm the the passion ideas for your life are virtually endless. But you heard me referenced. The nine line framework earlier. And as i look at this nine line framework. You know again. It's it's this step by step guide. It is the process that helps you rediscover passion in your life after the military. And i look at these these lines in here. These chapters and the storage is told about my son. I can see him in these chapters. I can see how his passion is coming out just in the things that he is naturally doing now in the last episode i mentioned and talked about quite a bit actually line four. Which is what is my personality type. you know. why does it matter. And it's not even so much. Why does it matter. But how does that. Impact me and my passion and my purpose for life. And so i'm going to touch on line for a little bit today but i want to give you some examples from line five later in the show about discovering that passion in your life but line four again i used sixteen personalities dot com. You can go there right now. You can take this free assessment to figure out to learn what your personality type is and again that is not the only tool you can use you. Can use myers briggs. You can use the disk assessment. There are so many tools you can use to figure out your personality because in the military unless you are you had a way different experience than i did. They really ask you. What your what your passion was or even more specifically. They didn't ask what your personality was. Just said hey here the jobs you can pick from pick a job do your job and then you go your military career and you get out and now you're here listening to this show and saying man. How do identify my passion in life. What is it that i am passionate about. How do i find that. Well you'll hear me say this more than once. Pick up a copy of the resolve book. That is really your first step to figuring out your passion and your purpose and your meaning in your life after the military but again light for just goes over. What is your personality type. It walks you through that process of discovering who you are and who you're meant to be and line five asks another question it says what do i have to offer. And that's very specific to you. What do you have to offer the world. Because i believe that. A life focused on making a difference in the world as a life worth living. I think that's really what we're all after is that we want to make a difference. Maybe it's just in our own personal lives. Maybe it's in the lives of our friends or family or our church or our school whatever it may be or or if your teacher may be your students you want to make that positive impact and so line five walks you through that process of figuring out what it is that you have to offer so coming up after the break. That's what i'm going to talk about. I'm gonna share some examples and walk you through blind five and sharing this for free and you can pick up a copy of the book on amazon or on kerr's to fight again dot com but i'm gonna share the the line five here with you and some examples that can help you figure out what it is you are passionate about in your life. That's after the break. Stay with us. Many americans today. Don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right so as we go into these examples. I want you to have an open. Mind here right some of these examples. You may not even thought of. But i i want you to keep in mind that some of these may not apply to you. Some of the may apply to you perfectly but before we get into those examples and went to review. Read you this quote from a retired general martin. Dempsey actually had him on the show. A few seasons ago A great conversation. You can go check that out. He talks about you know continuing to provide leadership in your post military life again. If you don't know years he is the former or the lissi would number was of eighteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and so again great guy. We had a great conversation. Should go check that out. But i want to read you a quote. He said sometimes we wait for thunderclaps drum rolls and clearly on calls to alert us to what's important when actually it's most often the subtle and persistent signals around us. That make the most difference. I want you to think about that for a minute when you think about your passion and life and what. You are naturally geared toward what are those subtle and persistent signals. So in in the book. I talk about the subtle and persistent signal. I got even as a child as a teenager. Really that writing is something i am. Naturally gifted at is something. I'm naturally good at in fact My mother found a poem that i had written She was cleaning. My room was teenagers. Don't ask me why she was cleaning my room and she didn't make me do it but i'm very grateful for her but she was cleaning my room and she comes into the room and she sees this poem that i wrote and when i get home from school she asked me about it. She says hair. Where did you copy this phone for. Almost didn't copy it. I wrote it. And i'm all of a sudden proud of myself because see my mother had always been this voracious reader with a strong command of the english language so hearing her say something like that. Which implied the poem was of this incredibly high quality right. It has stuck with me to this day. That aaron you you're naturally gifted at that and that the poetry. It wasn't anything i had to do. It was something i had in my head and maybe even my heart and just wrote it down. It was something. I felt naturally wrong to do. Just like my son was naturally drawn to develop this modification for this game and figure out all the additional software he needed and how to modify it and how to play the game afterward. I was actually drawn to writing so in that case even though my son and i we get along great and we have great father son relationship were way different as far as our passions. Go and that's okay. It's the thing is my. My writing skills are they. Were constantly improving through my life and the funny thing is even as i wrote the book wonder like am i the most qualified person to to write this book. Maybe maybe i am gifted at writing right. Maybe i am good at this. But am i the most qualified person and so why do i tell you this right. I tell you this. Because i want you to realize something that i'm still learning myself. The skills you have are probably around eighty percents better than you actually think. I want to say that again. The skills that you have are probably around eighty percent better than you actually think. Now what are get the eighty percent number. You know statistically they say what is seventy. Six percent of statistics are made up on the spot. I will say this. Evidence is more inaccessible and nature. But the things you are passionate about. You are geared toward learning more about it it just this natural thing. It's not something that you can really force. Can you learn things and learn more about Passions in your life. of course. you can't can you learn how to take care of the zales in your garden or in your new hangar. The year rose garden right. Is rose garden on. That makes sense but i looked at my window and saw zulia so i i mentioned it so it. Can you learn about that. Scher will you be passionate about it. Maybe you can develop a passion for it but passionate in your life is is this area of your life. That's built in. Its this natural part view. And so where do you go from here right. What are those examples that promised you a before we get into those examples. I want to share with you just a few questions that you can write down to ask yourself and you can kind of fill these out like to help you figure out where you go from here and figure out what it is you have to offer the world so the first question goes right along the lines of my story. I just told about not only about my son but about myself. I have always been good at blank. Fill in the blank there. What is it that you have always been good at something. That seems easy for you for me. It was english and grammar and for my son. Tech is easy for him. Technologies easy for him super easy a he is are basically our systems administrator at the house. he knows so much about For my daughter the things she is naturally good at and she finds easy music. She finds that incredibly easy from wife. She finds the medical field incredibly easy to pick up on. And it's not because it's not challenging to learn it's because we have a passion for those particular things in our lives. Here's a second question you can ask yourself. I don't know why. But i really just enjoy doing the following things and then list those things what things that you do really bring you joy for me. It's writing it's crafting something from nothing. It's looking at this blank page and putting words on it and impacting the world with a those words. And let's see what's the next one number three this. This is kind of long ones. All probably read it a couple of times. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until what so for this question. Think of a time your life in which our knowledge or skills or ability was needed. Think of a time when you were able to use it and you suddenly realized that brought you joy so i to read that one again and explain that a little more. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until this particular event in my life. I never thought about me being really good at writing until my mother when i was fourteen. Fifteen years old picked up that poland in my room and said hey this is really good. Where did you copy this from. I never thought about that. My son may not have ever thought about how good he is attack. Until i pointed it out and said dude that is amazing that you figure that out on your own you contact the experts in and you did everything needs to do on your own and so when you think we think of that like okay. I never thought about what i'm naturally good at. And what i enjoy until a particular event in your life and you think about when your knowledge or your skills or abilities were needed and and then you say okay. I was able to use it at that point in my life and then you suddenly realize man that made me feel really good. That brought me joy. That was dare. I say it fun and a lot of times. We as adults we. We tend to tend to think like well. You know i'm an adult. I don't need to have funding more. I shouldn't be having fun anymore. I'm more focused on business and and making money taking care of my family. Those are all great things but at the end of the day passion following that passion pursuing that passion your life a lot of times what it feels like is fun just a lot of fun number four thing. You can ask yourself. I was able to make a difference in a person's life by using one or more of my unique abilities which not only made a difference but it brought me joy as well and the question is list those skills or abilities that you use to impact someone's life or to make a difference in the world for me. They'll be writing for my son that might be tech my daughter that might be music for my wife that might be the medical field. So there's so many things that again virtually unlimited number of things where you can find passion in your life and it's those things that you are naturally geared toward they. Here's a few examples. I'm going to review these for you just to give you a sense of where you can find passion in your life and don't get caught up on the stories themselves. I want you to imagine yourself. What is it that you personally find your passionate about. Here's example number one. I was a cormon in the navy. And i learned a lot about helping others in times of medical crisis. I found so much joy. In this. I knew my job well and i knew i was making a difference. Pretty simple right pretty direct and so this person says hey. I knew what i was doing was making a difference. And i found joy in it. Here's another really good one along the video games. A video games idea. I love playing video games call of duty fortnight minecraft you name it. I get a sense of joy out of playing them and truth be told. I'm pretty good at it. My unique personality which i found in line for which i now understand. It equips me well as a teacher and so a combined those elements to start a video game players club in my community. We get together. We eat snacks. Play video games. Hold tournaments and get to know each other better. It's such a great time. And i love it. So being a woman in the navy versus playing video games way different right but still these people can find passion in these things see. Here's a here's another one very a very hands on example. I've never really enjoyed school or sitting in the classroom. But one thing i do enjoy working with my hands getting my hands dirty now that i know my unique personality type again that he learned in line for i understand more about wild like this type of work and why i tend to dislike sitting in the classroom. I love solving problems. I distinctly remember one time when my elderly neighbors toilet was leaking. She asked me. If i knew someone who could help and gladly volunteered myself. I checked out the situation figured out what. The problem was unseated. The toilet installed a new wax ring and reseeded the toilet. She was so grateful. And i had fixed a problem for her. I felt really good about myself. That's huge The the the What do you call it. The joy the inner joy that comes from making a positive difference in someone else's life is absolutely huge. Now here's here's the last example share with you because we're running up on time but this one. I really liked this one. Because i have a dog. I love my dog and a lot of you probably have pets as well but this one says. I am a pet whisper. Yes it may sound silly to some. But i have an incredible heart for dogs cats birds and just about any other animal who is suffering or quote unquote down on their luck. In fact i have adopted two dogs and two cats. I've them better lives. This has been so rewarding to me and it is a passion. I continue to pursue. See the thing is there is not one specific passion that we are all going to find fulfilling the passion in your life is going to be your own. Here's the last thing. I want to share with you how we are built as humans. We're designed to live our best life in the context of relationships with other people. I to say that again as humans. We're are designed to live our best lives in the context of relationships with other people. You know chances are we're not all going to be billionaires or a world famous politicians.

"This was seriously weird. Turn of events for astrazeneca. This week monday morning. We got the highly anticipated face. The results from its. Us trials seventy nine percent efficacy which came in better than expected but later that night at about midnight dr found institute released a statement saying the oversight board said those were data so now astrazeneca has given us the updated results just two days later and the numbers. They really didn't change too much now. Seventy six percent overall efficacy against symptomatic disease the efficacy against severe disease state and one hundred percent in people over sixty five and actually went up five points to eighty five percent and they did have a lot more cases to count here one hundred ninety as of today's results including eight severe cases strengthening that finding from one hundred forty one and five severe cases on monday. Guys how to folks looking at this after seeing kind of rollercoaster. We've seen this week and just saying the vaccine looks good. But the communications have just been awful. Dr not had bedell tweeting quote at this point. I'll just wait for the fda submission packet just to avoid any more roller coaster rides and a guys. A lot of people will be looking forward to seeing those data when astra zeneca files which they had said would be in the first half of april with the fda then three weeks later we should see fda's analysis of those data and we'll get to look at all of it itself but this has just been a weird ride made even more weird by the fact that these updated data didn't really change that

Gone Fishing

"Can be tough to try and make lifestyle choices that will help build a healthier world over and over we find out that one of our habits is contributing to climate change inequality or the destruction of earth's bio-diversity even habits. We thought were healthy. Take seafood for years. We were told that fish were an important part of a good diet but now we are learning that many of the fish we are used to eating or threatened species. Seafood is the largest traded food commodity in the world and it plays an essential role in our global diet for some people. Fish are a luxury but in many of the world's poorest and fastest growing populations it's a matter of survival at the same time relentless industrial fishing methods are pushing many species to the brink. If things don't change our fishing habits could devastate ocean bio-diversity and deplete a resource that humanity needs in order to survive. Fish are in trouble but the solution may not be what you expect. I'm gabrielle sierra. And this is why it matters today. Will there always be plenty of fish in the sea. What's over seventy six percent of the world's fish now or fish fished capacity overfished or collapsing and fifty years. The earth has lost more than half of its life. We completely destroy the natural balance of fish in the world's oceans. So are we going to run out of fish. If the current way that humans are fishing continues in the current practices remaining unchecked. That doesn't set up a good scenario for our future. My name is michelle curic. And i'm the vice president for ocean policy at the world wildlife fund. In the united states the pressure the amount of fish the frequency the quantities. That fishermen are taking out a really causing many stocks to be in very bad shape in terms of their future viability. I mean fish is one of the most heavily traded food commodities that we have fishing really is a big business in two thousand eighteen. The global export market reached an estimated value of one hundred and sixty four billion dollars. Asia is the leading region in the fishing industry with china south korea japan taiwan and one outlier spain fielding the most vessels globally the european union the united states and japan or the three places that consume the most fish by volume. And it's really valuable. Many different species are very high. Cost so there is a lot of profit to be made in catching fish. We have these manmade causes. These drivers these threats that are caused by you know just better technology. Bigger boats better refrigeration easier methods of transport and we have some of the man induced natural factors like climate change which are also changing the water quality the composition the affiliation of the water. That fish call home and some species can't adapt that well they move to different parts of the ocean to have a more hospitable climate and that then raises lots of political issues about get to catch. And how many if you've ever gone fishing. You know the drill a rod align a hook some bait and maybe a boat but modern day industrial fishing looks nothing like that. The boats and many fishing fleets are essentially gigantic floating factories inside. They have all the machinery necessary to process freeze and package. Hundreds of tons of fish per day guided two schools of fish by sonar and spotter planes. Some of these ships dragnets that are over a mile long sneering whole schools of fish that thereafter and many that they aren't after to some of the methods are shocking take bottom trawling which involves dragging massive nets across the ocean floor in the hopes of sweeping up fish the process destroys coral and other ocean floor ecosystems that are essential for all kinds of life just for one catch s fish populations decline these fleets are having to travel further from land and drag their nuts deeper in order to reach their targets when it comes to fisheries. There are two things that are important to know first about one in three fish. Stocks is overfished at that means that we are catching more than the population is able to produce by his branch. I'm the director of fisheries at the foot and organiz ation of the united nations. And i'm also a professor at the university of exeter in the uk to have an analogy with john king. We are eating into the capital rather than just using the interest that doesn't mean that we collapsing. The population is just. This is not sustainable. We need actually to change that. But we see a dichotomy of what is happening. Between developed countries and developing countries in developed countries. We see increasingly an improvement in sustainability status in developing countries. We see the opposite. We see it decrease in sustainability increasing volume of problems. Those are not easy to resolve.

Australian PM is vaccinated as rollout begins

"Today is the day that vaccination start to roll out across australia but we got a little preview of that yesterday with the with the prime minister and world war two survivor and a couple of other people getting the vaccine yesterday. Yes they go to i. Those of the pfizer vaccine which also followed a day on saturday of anti xers demonstrating and being talked to list in one city by pete evans. Some people criticizing the prime minister. Full so-called jumping the queue to get the vaccine before anyone else does but maybe leading by example. I just don't think you can criticize our leaders for having the it's not as if whole parliament skating it. It's really just showing their confidence in the vaccine. I think it's really important. Thing down the track. You'll see the health minister leader of the opposition getting the astra vaccine or the chief medical officer. Getting the astra vaccine to show that the our leaders are. You do have trust in this. And do you do believe in science. And i mean it's like laser immune to getting the virus either. Pay dutton got covid early. Jia by tribe and you you want your leadership cupboard and there's tens of thousands of accents that are gonna roll at in just the next couple of weeks. So i suppose people sort of is on the horizon going cool vaccine zahia. That's a really big comfort in a time of pandemic. When do we start to see things going back to normal. That's the critical question. And it depends what you call going back to normal because in most parts of australia. Things are pretty normal. We've got very little if any covid. Nineteen virus around in australia and new south wales is going weeks so has so have other jurisdictions so available around so we're back to normal internally back to normal means opening the borders having international travellers and tourists coming to australia us being able to go overseas listening. You'll becoming part of the world again. I think that's what we mean by becoming not becoming normal and covered that on tonight's Seven thirty program by talking to a mortar spoke to chris. Murray who heads the institute for health metrics and evaluation and he's of the he runs one of the world's leading modeling groups and covered on the health report back in november. He predicted the dr the global downturn in cases of covid nineteen that. We're seeing now he. He predicted almost to the week and his was. That was going to be nothing to do with. Thanks to nation and everything to do with season. -ality that really. It would have itself out in terms of the winter surge in covid nineteen. Because it's so seasonal. So i decided to go back to him. Seen other vaccinations going out. What what what's your modeling moving forward and it was quite sobering. He says he's not as bullish. Nah as he was back in november the variables that he's taking into consideration people's behavior. Now remember we're talking about the northern hemisphere not stralia new zealand but of almost no virus. And we've got close borders visit. If people's behavior goes back to normal before you get down to very low levels of virus transmission then you. He believes that you could. Well see a third wave evolving at the end of the northern summer. Pretty much like you saw in in twenty twenty and what could make that. Which is the second variable that he's worried about our vaccine resistant. Very variants of the virus escaped the vaccine and that they could really muddle the muddy the water considerably. How does that fit with other data that seeing coming out saying that the vaccines are reducing transmission in places like i and that's a place where the at least the uk variant is very prevalent on the uk very sensitive to the vaccine it's african variant and other variants than meyer is including the brazilian variant. We're not much is known. And you'll remember that. We spoke some days ago. About the brazilian city minnows. Seventy six percent of people had been infected with the virus. There were only five hundred admissions to hospital in the beginning of december beginning of january first nineteen days of january. Three thousand five hundred hospitalizations in so vaccine trials a very high percentage of people where had had covid nineteen when they were into the trial and in the placebo group they got reinfected with the south african variant so these vaccine escape variants are really worrying in terms of reinfection. Saw the vaccine does is turns covered one thousand nine hundred common core. Which is why. I'm gonna take the astra and we're five. We'll take whatever is given to me. Because i don't want to die of covid. Nineteen but if what we are looking for an opening of the borders and international normalization at least in australia. According to chris murray. We've made the wrong bet with the astro vaccine. He says you really do need to be immunizing with pfizer or madeira. Or perhaps even novak so that still to be proved in the real world. We're much higher. Degrees of efficacy and reduction in transmission and remember the other issue reduction in transmission is that these new variants emerge in countries. Where there's a lot of spread where the virus is multiplying and replicating all the time. And that's where these new variants are being thrown off. They won't be thrown off in austria. Where there's no virus around they'll be thrown off in low income countries like sight words middle income countries like south africa. They'll be thrown off in the united states in britain and other places if the virus keeps on circulating. So what we've got to do is get to very high levels of immunization very very quickly with highly effective vaccines and hope that that minimizes these of virus. Which is resistant to the vaccines. And then what we gotta do. And it's got to be done right now actually getting vaccines op through visor. Moderna novak's which are designed to cope with the resistant variants. That are around. Perhaps the brazilian one certainly the south african one and within a few months star boosting with them. This is really demoralizing. When with sort of on the cusp of vaccine. Roll out of here in australia woman. And if i'm just an average person sitting at home listening to corona 'cause what should i take away from these. Iud urging people from getting vaccine that they often no. Because i think it's really important that we all get covered so that shoots so first of all we're going to have a layer of protection. The international evidence is increasingly by the pfizer vaccine prevents transmission. So that means with hotel. Workers bar workers being immunized and hopefully their families to and that's a really important part of the story. We are creating a ring of confidence around the hotel borders. We've also got to institute with the pfizer vaccine. Not the astros vaccine ring vaccination around outbreaks so that we are controlling this any outbreaks there and everybody else immunized with the astra vaccine so that we are turns it into the common colds. We create a very safe situation. The problem is wayne. Do we open up to international travel and windy relax on hotel quarantine and with a country. That's largely covered with the extra astro vaccine. Which is not very effective somewhere doggy. Effective at all against the south african variant certainly in terms of transmission. Then it becomes a very nerve wracking decision to make. So that's why we've got to be planning in twenty twenty one for a booster. Does of vaccine resistant covid nineteen. That's actually a question that we had from john who's in australia who leaves in the us. And he's basically asking now. The australian vaccination program is rolling out. Do we expect. When do we expect the quarantine might be lifted. And what kind of factors go into that decision making so you could be quite cool about it if you think that we are all. We've turned effectively. Destroyed population susceptibility to covid nineteen into the common cold. And it does look as though the it's pretty effective at doing that with you're talking about african variant or indeed other variants. So we're pretty protected so you could say well maybe sooner rather than later but you know. It's just a very nerve wracking theme because we variants from all over the world and we are not donating vaccine to low-income countries. At the rate which will get van covered quickly enough and they will be throwing off variants and those variance will come to look at hiv hiv started around contrast saw in zaire and then you tens of millions of people have been infected with. Its an died. It doesn't matter where these variants arise from. They will spread to other parts of the world. So we've got to get the globe immunized as quickly as possible otherwise. It's very hard to relax just when you thought you had this thing pinned down at escapes again. Norman so so becomes really does become a bit like flu where the first vaccination does protect us to very significant extinct in terms of dying and serious disease. That's why i'm lining up. For whatever vaccine i get and i would urge other people to do the same. But it means that the government has got to not be complacent about this any shape or form and has to star ordering what's called multi vaillant vaccines are trying to ranging them now so that by spring summer of this year. We're getting boosting booster shots with multi valent vaccines that will covers against the current range of resistant. Variants around the world and that swing will open up borders.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: US House votes to strip Republican of key posts

"Report. That they're covid. Nineteen shot may not only protect against disease but also help to prevent spread of the sars o. V. two virus the news was heralded by policymakers desperate to see a vaccine that can curb the spread of the disease but scientists have been a bit more cautious if confirmed the results would represent a breakthrough in the covid nineteen vaccine race so far the shots authorized or approved around the world have shown strong protection against moderate to severe disease but haven't definitively proven that people who get vaccinated are less likely to spread the covid nineteen virus but the data say. Some experts is confusing. So it's hard to adequately evaluate the companies claim that the shot can actually slow the spread of covid nineteen or not in the study published on the lancet pre print server which means the results have not been peer reviewed a gold standard for ensuring the scientific rigor of the findings astra zeneca and oxford scientists. Report that two doses of their vaccine was overall sixty six point seven percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen disease as part of its analysis. The research team also collected nasal swabs from and unvaccinated study volunteers in the uk every week and tested them for the virus. The scientists found that positive tests were about fifty percent lower among people who got two doses of the vaccine compared to those who weren't vaccinated because people who don't test positive are less likely to spread the virus the researchers extrapolated from those data. The astra zeneca shot can transmission of the covid nineteen virus. However that may be a bit of a stretch says dr carlos. Del rio executive associate dean of emory school of medicine. It's a leap of science. That i think still needs to be proven. He says what they show is that there was either decreased viral shedding or decreased detection a virus however they do not actually show that transmission was decreased. We can say less. Transmission is a possibility but the data on. That needs to come out says del rio. We wanna state the facts and don't want to overstate the facts. That concern was echoed by health officials. In switzerland who decided this week to reject the astra. Zeneca shot the data available and evaluated to date are not yet sufficient for approval. The country's regulatory bodies swiss medic said on february third part of the concern has to do with the fact that the astrazeneca study underwent a number of changes after the phase. Three trial was begun. A fact that some infectious disease expert say makes it difficult to interpret the results for a clinical trial as crucial as this one modifying the setup once it's underway is similar to changing the rules in the middle of a game the study originally set out to investigate a single dose vaccine but was changed to two doses when concurrently conducted early studies show that to set doses of the vaccine produced a stronger immune response further because of what astrazeneca said. Were mistakes in measuring doses. Some people in the study in the uk received a half dose for their first shot and a full dose for the second. one people also got different placebos. Some god benign nina cockles solution and some a saline solution. That could mean nothing. But it's also unusual to have two. Placebos sends that has the potential to introduce con founders into the study and because of limited supplies. Some study participants had to wait more than the three to four weeks originally planned between their doses while others when told they couldn't come back for their second dose at the time they expected chose to simply not get their second shot entirely. Frankly the way they did. These trials was really confusing. Says dr paul off it. Director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the us food and drug administration's advisory committee that reviews vaccines for authorization or approval. This is the stuff you figure out in phase one. You don't fool around in phase three and see what works he says. Here's what the researchers report after getting a single shot. Seventy six percent of participants were protected against disease for up to three months. Afterwards from their their levels of antibodies generated against the virus which scientists believe are important to protect against disease began to drop those results suggest that while two doses of the astra. Zeneca vaccine preferable. A single dose could still be useful for about three months in controlling covid. Nineteen that might be especially useful information to act on if vaccines are in. Short supply.

You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not

"We're talking about pandemics norman one of the phrases that was bandied about a lot especially at the beginning was the idea of herd immunity that we get to a stage where the virus con spread willy nilly through the community anymore because enough people have had it that it doesn't spread as rapidly anymore and the theoretical threshold for that based on how much a single person with covid sort of tends to spread to was about sixty seventy percent. So what do we know about places in the world where there has been a lot of cover transmission whether we're reaching this community threshold and it's actually making a difference. Well funny you should say that because a couple of days ago in the lancet published a report from brazil which is actually quite disturbing. So the reported from a city in brazil called monas- who are monogamous. Which is in the amazon northwest brazil. I think it is and they had done a study of blood. Donors indicated four seventy. Six percent of the population had been affected with sars cov to by october of last year. And therefore you would assume with fat pie attack rates. You've got herod immunity which is above sixty as you said between sixteen seventy percent except that happened in january in other words just this month between the first of january in january nineteenth compared to december first two thousand nine hundred they had three thousand four hundred thirty one hospital admissions for sars coffee to for covid nineteen compared to five hundred and fifty two in the first twenty days for three weeks of december right. So they've had a big spike last year. It's dropped off. And now the saying a big spike again now. This and hospitalizations had remained low for about seven months. And you've just seen this spike in january and The question is what's going on here. So you could have overestimated the attack rate and the haired immunity ratio so possible that it's a high estimate in terms of when people were immune but even their low estimates based on perhaps errors in their assumptions of Wayne people what antibody response. It's still about fifty two percent as their low estimate there and that should still can fair some degree of immunity. But they do say that when you compare. The blood donors to average population. There was no difference in the university seems to be quite a representative sample of the general community. So they assume but seventy six percent is accurate so then they go onto looking at whether or not. There's been a waning of antibodies. During that time that could be other response but they showed that you and british healthcare workers reinfection was rare up to about six months after the primary infection. It could be due to variance because we've talked a lot on kron cast by the variance in brazil and they've really got to three lineages of variants in brazil which could be both more virulent and indeed war contagious. So the worry here is that we don't really know why they've had a resurgence in a community that should be pretty immune and it's not that these people are getting a model infection the second time around either because the measure that they looking at his hospitalization so presumably people quite sick. Yes and there is growing evidence that some some of these variants are were virulence. Although that's that's not been confirmed in any pure view jr journal. In fact one thing i need to say. But this paper is that it's in the lancet. And therefore it has gone undergone some degree of peer review rather than some of the other pre publication papers. We sometimes court from. So what are we. Take away from this. It seems like a pretty scary fact is is heard immunity. A false goal. Do we know whether vaccination is going to have a long long lasting immunity associated with it like this kind of worrying. It is kind of wearing. The good news is that consistent evidence from immunization at least with the astro vaccine and the fis vaccine even though the astro vaccine may be less efficacious at preventing all disease is that they do seem to generate an immune response. That's bigger and deeper than you get from alive infection which is very unusual. 'cause usually live infections. Give you a better degree of immunity particularly with influenza. But it seems to be contradicted in this. So it's likely that vaccination gives you a better immune response that lasts longer. But you'd have to say that from the study you don't have to watch pretty closely whether or not immunity wayne's faster are your vulnerable to variants more than people have thoughts. I mean it's it's mystery could be wrong but it's a it's a real warning sign.

Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?

"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three.

Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators

"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?

it's more money that I have right now that could be the jump start for right okay we expect to get this five hundred dollar bonus or thousand dollar limit the company three thousand dollars because I

team Penn Germer I to intend now member they were too into one on the time they've lost eight in a row he says this is a process we've got to do what we have to do to win games and I understand that and but they also are developing and some point will be good enough to win reporter says you do understand that you are judged on wins and losses I'm well aware of it and you know people will change what they think of us and me when we win games he says in terms of all the critics and criticisms is getting I'm a realist when it comes to that and I get it and you know what when you don't win I

in and light up this defense I don't know so I know the numbers really speak to that other than the touchdown passes he clutched arose yeah but the but the you know the interceptions by Daniel Johns

"It's six thirty five this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm very that was Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang what did the president know and when did he know it one of the most famous lines to come out of the Watergate investigation is also a relevant question in the impeachment inquiry into president trump The New York Times has a story out this evening that offers more information about that it alleges that president trump knew about the allegations contained in a whistle blower complaint before he released hundreds of millions of dollars of military assistance to Ukraine on September eleventh joining us with more is one of the reporters on this story Julian Barnes welcome thanks for having me so according to the reporting of you and your colleagues when did president trump first find out about the whistle blower complaint and just to remind people this is the whistleblower who allege trump with held military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure the Ukrainian president to conduct political investigations we've known for a while but the White House learned about the complaint in in early August that the CIA's top lawyer had alerted the NSC the National Security Council lawyer the White House but not president trump that's correct well we didn't know is winded trump himself learn about it when he learned that there was a complaint against them and what we reported tonight is that it was late August it was pretty soon after the inspector general who had the complaint alerted the top intelligence officer the director of national intelligence so in late August before the eight is unfrozen before Mr trump talked to Gordon Solomon and says there's no quid pro quo he learns there's a complaint against him and do we know the specifics of what exactly president trump was told for example was he told that the whistle blower complaint mention the hold on military aid we don't know specifics but we know a couple things about this conversation we know that at this point that the White House knows a lot of the details about what was the staffers had raised his concerns in the call they no doubt him his mention of the investigations of the bite and Ukraine's involvement in the twenty sixteen election meddling allegations all that is is in them the grist for the mill also while the whistle blower complaint doesn't make a big deal about the military aid it does mention it and so he is briefed on on the outlines of that right okay now the house Democrats who are leading the impeachment inquiry have repeatedly pointed to what they say is suspicious timing that the aid was released very soon after congressional committees were notified of the existence of the whistle blower complaint he just fill in the gaps a little more force how does this reporting to back up the Democrats case will it prompt learns about this even before the the house is notified that there is a a complaint remember they learn in early September that there is a complaint they don't know what the contents of that are then in mid September the house intelligence committee subpoenas at and forces the fight that makes this come out but truck knows all the details of this two weeks before that two weeks before we in the rest of the world learn about the only let me just jump in what is the White House said in response your reporting tonight so far so far there is no response from the White House all right that's Julian Barnes of The New York Times thank you very much for joining us tonight thank you new details have surfaced this week spelling out how the Chinese government has been monitoring and detaining Uighurs and other Muslim minorities inching John that's a region in northwestern China these details appear in the trove of leaked classified Chinese government documents operations manuals intelligence briefings all of which were obtained by the international consortium of investigative journalists one of the reporters is with us now Bethany Allen Abrahamian welcome it's great to be here alpha so I first want to get it how these documents advance what we already know about what's been happening inching John we know that possibly more than a million workers and other Muslim minorities have spent time in detention we know that the Chinese government has gone to great lengths using technology to monitor this population one new details do these documents provide us on what the Chinese government has been doing they give us new details about what's happening inside the camps specifically especially in terms of the measures that Chinese authorities have taken to make sure that caps the secret and some of our other documents give us new insight into what exactly all that surveillance was for it's being fed into the database that's then used to round up people it deems suspicious on a mass scale a database that includes bio data their DNA their names their relations etcetera that's right and including information that was sent to that database via Chinese embassies and consulates abroad what kind of guidelines DC's spelled out in the operations manual for how these camps and run just give us a couple of brief examples it shows a very regimented strict life for the N. mates at the camps including tight regulations on when they're allowed to use the toilet where they're allowed to sleep and total secrecy what struck me about these new documents is how precise and and thoroughly systematic all of this will as I mean this was a very very intricate plan is this the closest glimpse we have a the Chinese government's intentions yes I think it shows Chinese authorities had a very clear idea of the scale at which they were building these camps and of the danger that they were putting many human lives and it also shows the cold calculated almost machine like attitude towards how to detain people by the thousands and tens of thousands in response to this reporting the Chinese government called these leaked documents quote pure fabrication and fake news what do you have to say about that the documents came to us through a very careful and verified chain of transmission if you look at the documents themselves they conform to every template of classified Chinese government documents that is available and classified Chinese government documents follow a very very regimented kind of lay out and these documents match that one hundred percent well I guess the big question for me is what happens now we have these documents that if you are correct are straight from the government spelling out in great detail the detention the indoctrination and the mass surveillance of leaders and other Muslim minorities how do you think the US can have more influence on this particular issue think about what we did after Tiananmen there was a wide range of sanctions and China became at least temporarily a pariah in the international community what we're seeing in Xinjiang deserve exactly that response because what's happening in seeing John isn't staying and seen John China is actively exporting its surveillance systems around the world through it safe cities projects and and other ways it's so important that the United States deploy every tool at its disposal from sanctions from diplomatic pressure from multi lateral you know diplomatic campaigns to put pressure sure on the Chinese government we have seen very few of those measures being taken Bethany Allen Abrahamian is an investigative journalist with the international consortium of investigative journalists thank you very much for coming in today thank you for having me you're listening to All Things Considered from NPR news there has been another twist in the long running story about the Chinese electronics company while way the US is telling its allies that using Chinese equipment to upgrade their telecommunications infrastructure presents a security threat though while way denies it has direct links with the government in Beijing in Germany chancellor oncle Americal was on course to allow quality to build Germany's five G. network but now her own party says that is a decision that should be made by the German parliament the move means it's increasingly unlikely that Huawei will have a role in upgrading Germany's telecom systems NPR's rob Smits joins us from Berlin to talk about all this Hey rob Ailsa so just helps understand what what is chancellor miracles plan here well I think to understand her position on while it helps to understand that Germany's biggest companies have an extraordinary amount of dependence on the Chinese market one out of every four Volkswagen cars for example is sold in China nearly a third of Siemens global sales is made in China China the largest market for Mercedes Benz of the you know the list goes on I spoke to towards a better about this he's the director of the global policy public policy institute in Berlin and he says miracle understands how exposed to China Germany's economy really is chance America is extremely afraid of retribution by the Chinese party state Sir in case so Germany decides to exclude to walk away from five G. critical infrastructure so why is miracles party so opposed to this plan well opponents in our own party say the threat of retribution as a prize that's worth paying because it's clear to them that under Chinese law while we would have to take orders from China's government if China's government wanted to compromise Germany's telecommunications network and as it stands all three of Germany's big telecoms companies have spent years installing hallway equipment into routers cellphone towers and other infrastructure already and the cost of ripping all of that out could be better yeah if Germany's parliament bands always equipment so where do German people in general stand on this issue I mean how do you get a sense of their strong feelings their profile way what's interesting just today the results of the survey released by a Berlin based foundation that showed that seventy six percent of Germans feel that Germany should defend its political interests more strongly vis a vis China even at the expense of German economic interest so it appears the Germans themselves don't agree with chance America on this issue so if Wally gets banned in Germany what kind of fallout might we see in the country of course there could be substantial economic losses for German companies in China and that's a little scary especially since Germany's economy is teetering on the edge of recession at the moment but a hallway band is also not how miracle wants to go out as chancer miracle is in the final year to have her leadership **** hope to conclude her term in office with a big China E. U. investment summit scheduled for next autumn here in Germany which would have left a positive legacy between io in China but a ban on China's most important company could threaten the that's in peer Berlin correspondent rob Smith.

"Dot com is the website for the podcasting check that out right there okay so it just talking about bonds before this rake in talking about the other things that millennials don't know verses well what they do no more it actually is the way it was put in the article they understand fixed income investing better than older investors do an older investors ought to be more in tune with now a lot of younger investors I find that they just don't take the risk as they should when it comes to the stock market in many cases isn't there kind of afraid around understand of her my parents talk about it they talk about they lost money global blah well you know if you look at what people do and how they approach the stock market they typically approach it like a gambling casino and that's not the right way to approach it you don't try to buy and sell and tying the mark and figure out when you get in when you get out change your asset mix based on what's going on with the economy is doing and politically what's happening in all of this stuff so they don't tend to be a have terribly healthy attitudes toward stocks and how to invest in the market in general that's what I find but let's talk about the issue here when it comes to it says sixty five percent of millennials surveyed said all bonds provided the same level of risk seventy six percent of boomers believe the same thing now they may hear that right bonds are less risk in the stocks and that's as far as their knowledge goes but the reality of it is there are all different types of risk you know you might have some bonds as I talked about earlier in in the hour they're very highly rated you know double a triple a you're looking at companies that don't have a lot of risk when you're lending to them because they have so much in assets and they're borrowing a lot of times just because it's convenient rather than because they really have a need it's kind of like the other person that gets out you talk about there was always just used to be that you know everybody people I can get a mortgage of people I don't really need a mortgage right you can't get a mortgage if you really need it that's just not fair bubble lot well it is fair because if you're loaning money to somebody you want to get your money back you're not giving it to on your loaning it to home and you're expecting repayment it from here whatever is that they can and if they can't because they're a bad credit risk or they don't like free thank Cologne or something like that I don't know whatever it is is ages my mind's going back to a friend of mine that always talks about credit ratings you know your credit report and this is not always the case but he always used to make a case that in one of the reasons that you keep your credit report off and make it look good is because it's it's a it's a sign a character it shows that you do what you say you're gonna do now some people lose jobs and they end up with health issues in their credit report because back in a hand basket out of inside the control but for a lot of people you do have it under control and the and the reality of it is your insurance rates going to be a base be based on your credit rating so you want to make sure you keep your credit rating but there are companies that when they borrow money they've got to pay a lot to borrow money and the reason they have to pay a lot is because they're in a high risk business or maybe they've had problems before maybe they haven't paid loans as on time as they should so therefore there is a higher credit risk now by credit bond bonds issued by the federal government are typically very very highly rated you know double a rated bonds triple a rated bonds in a single a rated.

"Can I use my iPhone the hot spot restraint on the phone were there a couple of limitations of course you always have to have the phone right there and it's not going to necessarily be as fast as the lan line at least not as consistent as a land line and you should definitely look at whatever bandwidth caps your phone company puts on you because if you start watching YouTube and Netflix you'll be surprised how much bandwidth that uses you're going to be about a gigabyte and our band with so maybe okay let's say it's half that because you're not gonna watch HD content is still half a gigabyte in our you watch TV for hours a night that's two gigabytes tonight at sixty gigabytes a month I bet you anything your band with caps on any cell system are well below that that once now they may not charge you more but once they start throttling you and you know that's what they do they say it's unlimited right eighteen T. just pay a fine for this unlimited yeah well unlimited yes because we never turn it off but we will slow it down to the point where you can't use it and if you try to stream video won't be you won't be more than a week or two into the month before suddenly you can't watch Netflix at any decent quality if at all so this is the problem that many cell companies do offer home internet service plans so if you've got team mobile you might call of I think they do in fact in my column said like to do this what they'll probably do is say don't use your phone we're going to is this gonna kill the battery it's going to keep the phone hot we're gonna give you a little box does the same thing but that's all it does and and here's the price that's what I would do I'd call them and ask them about that you're gonna have a car this is honestly this is this I was talking earlier earlier I think on the show about the downside of being the originator of the technology in our phones cell systems so cuckoo because we invented here well same thing with the internet it's cuckoo and in countries where they didn't have the internet till recently they have much more rational structure our internet's broken broken when when cable companies started offering internet they went to the FCC and they said the basically blackmailer if and this is my interpretation others may have a different interpretation of what happened I can tell you the results the same they went to the FCC if you would like us to wire this entire beautiful nation with high speed internet we have but one thing we would like to ask if you we want a monopoly it's so expensive your honor it's so expensive to put good trench cable in put up on the telephone but so expensive we would like a monopoly and the FCC said well okay do you know if you only have one cable company in town that's what I call monopoly every region every city basically dictates which cable company is the official cable company and that's that we got a monopoly now it's kind of a duopoly because there was another big player with lots of bags of cash to bring the FCC in the in the mix that's the telecom companies the phone companies particularly eighteen team Verizon and they said well your honor we also would very much like to provide high speed internet the FCC there said well you already put in the lines so we're not going to give you a monopoly in in in fact the rule is if you're a cable I have a company you don't have to share your cable with anybody that's it it's yours you are the one only but if your phone company you may have noticed this you're providing DSL service they're required to let other companies ride on their lines to provide the else ulcers if he sees it around you already dug the holes and put that pulls up there's no excuse for this but it is a duopoly because besides that really isn't any other company in town most people in the United States having seventy six percent have access to no more than two internet service providers in their locale that's changing with wireless and I'm too I am hopeful there were you know with five G. we're gonna see the Kerry years get in the act there's lots of regulation and incidently the phone companies really make it hard for anybody else to use their polls they're supposed to by law but they make it hard some regions they don't allow it at all so it's probably gonna be some form of wireless you know in some areas you have wireless internet service providers wisps we're providing it via microwave or some other link but Hey there's always a little trade off you have satellite internet the trade off there is equipment for expensive in their band with very limited so they don't let you do a lot of stuff we just don't have the choices unfortunately it would be great if it's too late now what I would have been great in my opinion lot of people advocated for this is if just like the water and sewer system the electrical system if the municipalities had built out the internet capabilities and then rented them to the companies as many companies wanted to to providing that service we have competition we have an infrastructure that worked and we have choice and choice to me is the secret to all of this that didn't happen so you don't have a choice you kind of have to and honestly the problem with the phone company is their DSL Quitman is just not that good there is some fiber but the companies that were putting fiber in Freising Google have both suspended efforts is too expensive maybe that they were right when they went to the SEC even with a monopoly it's too expensive so we're kind of we're kind of stuck with not not the greatest internet story in the United States you got you get what you get go to broadband reports dot com they list.

"The twenty eighteen campfire displaced thousands of residents from their homes in paradise and surrounding areas recovery has been difficult and complicated for them but what about the people who didn't have homes even before the fire what happened to them KQED is Michelle Wiley has the story of one man's struggles since the fire the morning of the campfire William mace was taking a walk in the woods when he started to see burned pieces of trees along the trail remember my first thought was who's going to come on to the path and dump their burn pile ceases kind ridiculous then he looked up and saw cloud that didn't look quite right it was a plume of smoke and I put two and two together he realized something was wrong we rushed back to where he was staying and packed a backpack he ran to a nearby grocery store parking lot with the fire getting closer and closer eventually police officer drove him and others down the hill to a red cross shelter there Mr working with FEMA to get some financial assistance but he says they were only able to give him around eighteen hundred dollars I think go very far any found himself kind of short on options for where to live at the time of the fire mace was staying with friends doing chores and property maintenance for housing while he recovered from cancer I had the colon cancer back in twenty twelve he lost half his body weight during treatment and he was dealing with chemo brain the confusion and cognitive impairment that can come after a long fight with cancer so I was on sort of a a road to recovery to get my physicality and my my mental strength back from fairly involved treatment he started to come out of it he felt stronger and was looking for a job in a more stable place to stay I was I was upward curve of that process and then little fire you can go back to where he'd been standing he couldn't take the housing FEMA offered because it was too far away from his doctors and he didn't have a car so misapplied to live in one of the few homeless shelters in Butte county the Torah shelter in Chico it makes all lucky he secured a spot and moved in almost immediately but adjusting to life in a homeless shelter was hard hit trouble sleeping in the large communal storm there are times that it gets very stressful yourself to pull away from it so we started throwing himself into work in the shelters kitchens as a distraction took me awhile to admit to myself that I was stressed in the frenetic pace of life after the fire mais didn't have time to deal with what he experienced I haven't really been able to process what I've been through really perceive the gravity of the situation accepting knowledge the fact that I was dangerously close to living on the street it took almost a year but Mrs been able to come to terms with what happened to him now he says he's ready to get his life started again strong enough to look for a job and eventually a place to live I'm Michelle Wiley KQ retainers and we have Michelle with us now and Michelle Mr mace is just one person whose life changed because of the campfire and you met him on a recent trip to Butte county right right you also were there in the days and weeks after the fire and you found that the county and the city of Chico we're facing a growing homelessness crisis so what did you see them there was a huge population of people who ended up camping outside of a Walmart parking lot because that was the only place they could find a lot of areas were filling up there were so many people displaced by this fire this became sort of a last resort option and we saw people with young kids we saw a whole family is the elderly in the rain and just a really unstable situation and what was the immediate response to this so a few weeks after the fire hit the Walmart foundation committed a lot of money to view county in among those funds was a million dollars to address homelessness may I ask local providers you know what do you want what do you need and they said what we need is a low barrier shelter that can allow people from sort of all walks of life to come in and get off the street so what happened because the housing market the rental market in Chico was so tight there weren't a lot of places to put the shelter so the location they chose was a couple blocks away from an elementary school and as you can imagine there was a lot of push back there is a city council meeting in April or residents got really heated that they have a really passionate comments I remember one person saying you know this is gonna affect business this is gonna put kids in danger ultimately the providers decided to drop out and Walmart ended up getting the funding back in Butte county already had a homelessness problem even before the camp fire in my correct right Sir between twenty fifteen and twenty seventeen homelessness spiked in Butte county it rose by seventy six percent and so officials are already having a hard time addressing that problem in twenty eighteen the state made this new batch of funding available as millions and millions of dollars but just because all the money was available didn't mean that the county have the infrastructure to deal with that they didn't have the staff required they didn't have the institutional knowledge to get that money and then the fire hats and how was the public in Butte county processing all this did they know there was such a big problem and so much chaos around trying to solve it I think it depends on where you live do you know I talked to some stake holders who say they think part of the public response to this was if you lived in Chicago you kind of felt like you won the California lottery right you have a nice house your rents not terribly expensive it's certainly not San Francisco levels and you didn't really feel the poverty around here if you lived in paradise that situation was not the same so now you have these two groups of people moving in together and she residents are realizing you know the economic situation around us is a lot more fragile than we knew so it's sort of a changing vision of what their home is and what their county looks like so what's next what is the county going to do to try to wrap his arms around this problem so the county has taken concrete steps to address this in August they allocated some funds to create new positions county level positions and their jobs are going to be to assist the continuum of care it'll provide administrative support help secure that funding so that we can see projects followed through all the way to the end we can see more beds being built and more people getting off the street Michelle thanks for all your reporting on this thanks for having me KQED is Michelle Wiley she has a great detailed story about all of this it's at KQED news dot org you're listening to morning edition on KQED it's coming up on six twenty nine let's find out about the traffic.
