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
Why the NYPD Is Grappling With COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy
"New york city police department. Nypd is struggling to vaccinate its employees. According to the department an estimated forty seven percent of its members are fully vaccinated under nypd administered programs against kovac nineteen as of august twenty fourth even accounting for a percentage of the nypd's force who may have been vaccinated outside work and not provided details thereof. The nypd is not mandating that its employees self report their status that figure likely represents a sizeable decrease from the wider vaccination rates across new york city. Seventy six percent of all adults city residents of gotten at least one shot as of august twenty six and sixty eight percent are fully vaccinated and amid the delta variant impacting non-vaccinated new yorkers the kovic nineteen positivity rate in new york city over. The last seven days is around three percent on july twenty sixth new york city mayor. Bill de blasio said that all city workers would be required to get vaccinated or get tested weekly from september thirteenth onwards and on august twenty third the pfizer bio n tek vaccine became the first covert nineteen vaccine to be approved by the us food and drug administration fda but one brooklyn based traffic enforcement. Agent tells time they have no immediate intentions of getting the vaccine. I just don't feel like i need it yet. I spend most of my time outside. And i wear a mask. The traffic officer says for me. It's about having the choice to take it. And i just don't want to take it yet. A spokesman for the new york city patrol benevolent association. Pba the largest police union in new york city told time on august twenty fifth that they would take legal action. If there is a vaccine mandate for its workers
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.

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. Are you know billboard topping musicians but we can all make a difference when we find that passion in our lives. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Hope it's been helpful for you and that you've learned at least a little bit about identifying that passion in your life again you can pick up a copy of the resolve book at courage to fight again dot com or on amazon and i will share those links in the show notes as i typically do. Leave us a review. I tunes at definitely helps so much. Of course follow social media kurds. Finding in dot com is our website. Thank you so much for listening. We will see you next time.

"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.

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. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. 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. So
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?
Fantasy Football: D.K. Metcalf Week 2 Outlook
"Mccafe's seventy, six percent on the perimeter and week one lock at twenty, six percent and you're right. Last season we saw that now look, let's say metcalf was out for whatever reason. Then you might see them get a little more creative sometimes, you would see go more gonNA slot but that's not the case metcalf is very much a threat in the perimeter we know that so I fully expect him to travel obviously, there are similar size at least Gilmore's the biggest bigger corner for the saints or the Patriots and Jonathan Jones should be unlock it in the slot. Remember. The Patriots Defense Lhasa Pieces in the off season certainly Gilmore wasn't wasn't as normal dominance in week one but he was elite last year and so was his past offense fewest fantasy points to perimeter receivers second few overall two receivers, and again that's where Amac aligns is on the outside by the way. The Patriots. Defense only allowed one hundred, twenty, six yards to dolphins receivers in week one. So I I, know that's not quite Russell Wilson and Seahawks, but still they did an I
The NCAA decides Nov. 25 will be the start date for college basketball's season
"Twenty fifth is the intended start date for college basketball season and the oversight committees. As I previously reported had suggested that this go to November twenty first and that was the formal recommendation sent to the D. One council last Friday five days ago however. I was told and I want to be clear in how I share this information I talked to Dan Gavitt on the record earlier today and I have a story Cuny that you can read with a lot of stuff about why we're here and what's next and etcetera etcetera. But what about to share with you? I never discussed with Dan Gavin any kind of regard this is just my info gathering and what I think happened here today. So as I understand it, Dan Gavitt was one of a few important people that was really adamant about having the season start on November twenty fifth, and then the oversight committee acids power to do look at everything considered all the MTV's the multi team events and said, you know what with so many of. These starting on November twenty third in a couple actually starting scheduled starting November twenty. First we think we best to bump up the season by about four days. Get it done on November twenty first and just use that runway toward the rest of the rest Thanksgiving week including Maui invitational etc. wouldn't you know GP The D. One council met today in the D. One council for those familiar one representative from all thirty two leagues that have Division One men's and women's basketball. And I don't know why it got to this point specifically but we are at November twenty fifth I mean I know one reason Gavin told me on the record November twenty fifth they estimate seventy, six percent of campuses. We'll have all of their entire student bodies off campus on November twenty five as opposed to twenty and twenty one is forty three percent and making these decisions for health and safety reasons is the first and foremost reason. For doing this also significant to meet November twenty one st never made sense at all because that's a Saturday we will have college football and we will be leading to an NFL Sunday you have Wednesday. Now November twenty five, we can start then you have day to yourself, there will be no NFL, there will be no college football there will be no MBA there will be no nhl there will be no pro baseball, the only major American. Sport, that will be played on Wednesday. November twenty fifth season will be college basketball and that in of itself I think is a positive up shoot. So
"seventy six percent" Discussed on 790 KABC
"Thinking, what does this crazy old lady ranting about impeach impeach? And that's what they want. They want impeachment. There's only one problem, the American public not super behind impeachment. Look at the latest polls, they say that, that there is some support a growing support for impeachment, but it's still a vast minority. Democrats are increasingly in support of impeaching President Trump, according to CNN removing him from office, the majority of Americans remain opposed to the prospect, according to a new poll Trump's approval rating, hold exactly. Even where it wasn't late, April forty three percents approve fifty two percents disapprove of the president, according to the poll that's the case, even as support for impeachment rose slightly from thirty seven percent last month to forty one percent right now. Similarly, those Daqing impeachment had forty three percents in December that is down from CNN's previous Mark of the question. Forty seven percents in September of two thousand eighteen fifty four percents of Americans remain against impeachments, solid majority. However, among Democrats, a huge majority of Democrats want to see Trump. Impeach seventy six percents of Democrats favor impeachment from sixty nine percent in April white to hold college degrees. Have also increased their support for impeachment in surveys in April and March fewer than three in ten favorite proceedings that number has now climbed to forty one percent slightly, fewer now, say, the Democrats are overreaching in their investigations Trump, forty percents of Americans steel that Democrats are over reaching with those investigations. So just to get that straight right now. Overall, forty one percent of people support impeachment forty percent, believe that Democrats are overreaching. So that is not even really a majority of people who have an opinion either way saying that. They're either democrat side or the Republican side. Republicans apparently are softening a little bit on the overreach stuff. Eighty four percents of the Democrats were doing much April that is seventy six percent right now. Sixty five percent of the public say that President Trump is facing more investigations than any previous president. But it's unclear as to whether those people believe that those investigations are in fair or not. Forty seven percent. Say that the investigations are justified by the facts, forty four percents, and they're not merited based on the fact. So basically, we're still a fifty fifty fifty country on every single issue worth noting here. Donald Trump's approval ratings. In these polls are in the low forties. Nancy, Pelosi's approval rating is forty percent favorable forty eight percents. Unfavorable. Favorable views of the speaker, climbing. Moderate and conservative Democrats is fifty eight percents in December is now seventy three percents because she is standing up to the of the world. The reason that the Democrats continue to play footsie with so many members of the democratic caucus for radical is specifically because the democratic caucus would like to see Trump co until you end up with absurdities like this one James Clyburn, Representative from South Carolina. Coming out and saying, yeah, you know, we'll impeach like some point probably like, in the future. Maybe sure, why not route male will run in this issue. Why should we go out and make misteps and caused us to lose a court decision that will have people saying why didn't you take your time? How did you get out in front of this is kind of interesting to me, as I've talked to people when you ask them, what they think we ought to do? They agree with what we're doing is just the most notably. They will not to see something done and see it done quicker. But people want us to be affected what we do. All right. But the majority whip they're just a suggesting that you believe the president will ultimately being pitched at some point. And he says, yes. Basically, at some point down the road, you know, if you hold out long enough Debbie Dingle, who is a Representative from Michigan. She says, you know, impeachment, we can't do this in a partisan fashion. Let's just take it slow. Oh, guys. Now, the reason Democrats want to take the slow is because they have no intention of impeaching, even if it were to get to the Senate will get killed in the Senate. It's an enormous waste of time, but they're happy to make overtures to their radical left base because they sort of have to at this point. Half of this is that Russia is trying to divide us as a country. They're trying to attack the fundamental principle of our democracy. Well, one community, and we were being divided by fear and hatred. Job is to protect this country and keep it from being torn apart. But keep his country. That's what drives me all of this, and it worries me we need more Republicans to become involved in this. We need leadership on their side by. This is something that can't be done in a partisan way. Okay. So that is her excuse for not pushing for with all of this. Meanwhile, Senator John, Kennedy of Louisiana. He says the Democrats basically channeling, Ben Stiller in Starsky, and hutch like do it. Do it. John Kennedy daring Democrats. Go forward with us. I think impeachment will be Sophy and cash, it'll be tough going in the Senate impeachment polls right up. There was skimmed milk among the American people. But, but my advice to my democratic friends is if you wanna do it go hard or go home. You know, if you wanna do it go to Amazon online vice spine and do it, but go hard or go home. If you're not gonna do it, then let us get back to work. Well, I hate to waste a year and a half. Do it. Kinda love that from Senator Kennedy right there. The media, of course, continued to stoke the flames pretending that there's lots of support, so Greg Sargent, who's a leftist opinion writer over at Washington Post. He says, don't worry, you know, if you look at the early polls on Nixon, those people didn't want impeachment of vixen Lincoln wasn't impeached. Obviously, he resigned is closely followed the debate among Democrats over whether to launch an impeachment inquiry of President Trump, chances are that you've heard this number nineteen as many who support impeachment hearings, point out in early nineteen Seventy-three Gallup polling showed that only nineteen percents of Americans supported removing president Nixon by the summer of nineteen seventy four. When Nixon resigned support had climbed to the high fifties, which Ellis traits that on impeachment public opinion can be moved in a big way presumably on Trump. He says he's obtained from Gallup detail partisan breakdown of those numbers. He says Democrats returned from recess Santer puzzling over how to draw more public attention to Robert Muller's findings which could help build support for an impeachment inquiry. And so he now has a breakdown in what happened to public opinion. With regard to. Nixon. So there's a couple of the question was, basically should be impeached should not be impeached. No opinion. And what it showed was that, basically, it was Republicans who caved on the issue. Then most Democrats already started moving toward should be impeached by early nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans, thought, not by the end by August nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans wanted president Nixon impeached. Among Republicans support for impeachment or removal, moved from six percent in June of nineteen Seventy-three sorry. Thirty one percents in August of nineteen seventy four they massive shift among independence, from eighteen to fifty five from Democrats twenty seven to seventy one so he's never majority of Republicans. Right now independence are key reason, public support for impeachment is low fifty six percents of Americans actually oppose it independence oppose it by fifty nine percent. So maybe they can shifts independence but I think that's a hard task frankly. And I think most Americans have what they believe of President Trump at this point. I don't think new information. Is forthcoming now the second, there is an area in which new information continues to be forthcoming, but it doesn't really have to do with Trump Russia, collusion or obstruction of Justice. It has to do more with the struck page investigation. Both regards the Hillary Clinton probe and the Donald Trump Russia probe gets all that in just one second, I heart disease, Alzheimer's cancer, all horrible illnesses, that played countless Americans today. Thankfully, America's doctors and researchers are working around the clock to find cures for all of them. But if government officials like secretary Alex are have their way that could all change having the government, mess with people's healthcare..

That both political parties, both the Democrats and the Republicans actually agree on that isn't that? Awesome. So, unfortunately, it's not the world's best us subject. But there is they both agree that Americans don't have enough retirements in. Okay. So what they saying? There's no deep political divide on this issue of retirement income security. Seventy six percent of Americans are concerned that they won't achieve a secure retirement and outta those seventy eight percent of them are Democrats and seventy six percent of them are on second. Hundred. But I don't know. I, you know, it's seventy six percent of Republicans DR seven this is this is fuzzy math Loretta. Okay. So puzzling, man. All right.

"Thirty five on this Wednesday afternoon. President Trump delivered his second state of the union address last night on Capitol Hill joins us now from Washington to recap that speeches CBS correspondent Steven Portnoy. Good afternoon, Stephen and to you. You know, the president was in a good mood today. You said he offered loving words words of compromise. In state of the union last night. He says they've been very well received. The White House is pointing to our CBS news poll taken overnight. Which shows that those who watched the speech seventy six percent said they appreciated. The president's message about twenty four percent said they disapproved of what he had to say the poll was comprised of people who told us in advance. They intended to watch the speech and skewed more heavily toward the president's supporters was not necessarily reflective of the broader population in the country. It's a self selecting population that told us in advance as they say, they're going to watch a speech, but of those who did watch the speech, they told us in the survey that they generally liked what the president had to say. So Mr. Trump was in good spirits today as he was asked about one of the lines in this speech. He issued what he called ridiculous partisan investigations at the top democrat. The chairman of the house intelligence committee announced today that his panel will expand its probe of the Russia inquiry in and essentially get into the president's private business dealings. President Trump said today that Adam Schiff is a is a partisan political hack who has no basis for digging. Into the president's finances. The president also said no national emergency yet. Well, the president didn't mention national emergency. But he again called for the wall. He talked about the onslaught of as he put it of migrants heading to the country and the caravans and the big question that hangs over everything in Washington the next week and a half is whether the president will declare a national emergency the pressure that he's going to face is not just from Democrats, and those who might take to court, but also from Republicans because what could happen is the democratic controlled house of representatives could pass a resolution of disapproval putting the issue right in the Senate where Republican leader Mitch McConnell does not want to necessarily have to put his colleagues on the record as to whether they believe that there is a national emergency in effect. I it's very rarely if ever used power of the congress to overturn a national emergency declaration made by the president. But Democrats say they're prepared to do it in this case, and it might just force and on the record vote in now are there enough votes to? Override a presidential veto such a resolution to actually cancel the emergency declaration. No, perhaps not, but it would put Republicans on the record. And that will put them in a very uncomfortable place. Stephen. Thank you very much. That's CBS's. Steven Portnoy, joining us from Washington this afternoon on WBZ.

And you can this is about six or nine months old this article who who knows how much that's changing day to day. But it gives you an indication of of of how much is being tracked.

"Well, Laura, the only person I see on this practice you'll behind me is nice. Gentleman, mowing the lawn was nowhere to be found around here. I've spoken to several teammates and people in the organization. There's a loose hopefulness that he shows up. There's an expectation among some of the players that he will be here center Markey's pouncey told me you can count on him being here Wednesday, based on a hunch, but the vibe is starting to change a little bit. It's trending toward James, Connor because I just folk with somebody in the building I said, is lady on bell even in town right now. They said, I know the James Connor is in town, and so he's in line to start the game unless lady on comes today and has really two to three solid practices in full. He would have to be a full participant on Friday to even have a chance to play on Sunday. That's sort of they're protocol around here. You gotta think this a little bit of an odd situation for James. Connor. Thanks so much Jeremy Fowler with the latest there. And when you talk about James, Connor, as we mentioned him with living on bell, still not having reported to the Steelers, it's worth noting that Connors unveil. Seventy six percent of fantasy football leagues on ESPN dot com. I think greenie actually picked sites something you may want to consider the week one. Laura, I want to bring Damien Woody into the conversation here because I want to make sure everyone understands the distinction here. There were holdouts like Aaron, Donald and Khalil Mack we're doing and then there's this. There is nothing that is going to happen here. We're levian Bellas getting get one penny more than the franchise tender that he will ultimately sign if he wants to play this year at all. And that's an important distinction. So if you're a teammate of his right now, he's not holding out to get more money. He's holding out because he's aggravated with the organization. Are you aggregate with him based on the fact that you are a few days away from starting your season? Listen, green. I give you took coachspeak like with coast Tomlin. Did you know about the guys that are being here? What does the veteran as a veteran play in the locker room? I need my guys in here like you already put it out. There's nothing you can do about the contract situation. I've always feel that for player. Listen, I'm no more. I'm always about the money, get your money, but there's nothing you can do about that. Usually that stuff takes care of yourself in the off season but come, we would. Football players play. Okay. We can't do anything by the contract. I need my guys here because we started with one against a divisional opponent in Cleveland Browns. That's exactly right. Again, it's an important distinction because if a guy Golic Aaron, Donald is their week one, his teammates understand. Well, he's trying to get more money. There is no more money in this for eleven bell regardless of how it plays out and you heard Jeremy. Fowler, say, if he's in here for practice Friday, he can play Sunday. You played in the league forever. Can he show up after today after today's practice and be ready to play Sunday and contribute in meaningful way? Listen, greeted of, here's one thing on Bill could run yields when the treadmill, doll type of things, but you're never going to be in football shape the only way you get in football shape by being impasse in practicing. So the fact that some people think they Bill can just walk in off the street and just be optimal condition is nonsense. It's just doesn't happen that way. That's not how football the football game is played. So the long he weighs the less chance that I see him playing and we want, and the word that I wrote down as we listened to Mike Tomlin talking. It was the word working. He said, I'm focused on the guys who are here working right now..
