Two pharmacists fired after one allegedly took COVID-19 vaccines home, mixed doses at DMH in Illinois
"Indicator. We're a couple of pharmacists have been fired. The story comes from the Chicago Tribune and the reporting of Lisa Shankar, who joins us now, Lisa, welcome back. Thank you s Oh, tell me about what What's going on here in Decatur? Sure. So, um, we foid my colleague Jomar. Avoid a emails from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Freedom of Information Act. You filed? Yeah, thank you and looking asking for anything that they had received having to do with complaints about how vaccines have been administered and there were emails between Memorial health system, which is hospital Decatur and State Health Department because apparently to pharmacists employed by memorial health system were fired after one of them took doses home to her family members and incorrectly or inappropriately mixed doses of the vaccine. On a day when 300 of their health care workers were vaccinated, let's take the first one first. Um the the pharmacist has not been identified. Right. The emails did not include names in the health system that they couldn't tell us names. She was fired because the health system said what? She took vials home to her family. How what did she do? Sure, the health system. Apparently, What happened is she took a dose is home to her family members, According to these emails, the health system said that she took two doses and her family members were not people who would have been eligible for the vaccine. At that time. We know how many people were talking about. Um, health systems that she took two doses. Doses. Okay. And then the other situation and I didn't really understand this. Um, what defense was that? You explained it in the peace but that they were mixing doses from vials. Explain that for me. Sure, so if each let's say each vial of a fight of five your vaccine contains like six doses. After the pharmacist takes the six doses out of the vile there still might be a little bit left at the bottom of the pile. And so what This farm sis did was take that little bit that was left at the bottom of the vile and combine it with leftovers from other vials. Um, which to me? It sounds like a great idea. Yeah, right, And they're actually has the controversy about that, in some places about you know, is that a good way to get more vaccine? But the FDA said that that should not be done that That's a bad idea. Because it is. The sexy doesn't contain preservatives. So if you're mixing Vaccine from different vials. It could lead contamination issues. That's because the vaccine was taken out of one vial introduced to the Needle and the syringe and then reintroduced to another violence that what is that worthy infection? Which, Because it's more like Let's say you have a tiny bit of it left over at the bottom of a few different vials. And then you combine that little bit from the few different vials to create one new dose. Okay? And and that's the same pharmacist who was You took two doses home to her family, right? Okay, so two pharmacists were fired. What did the other one do? We don't know. We know it had to do with with this incident, but the health system, um, would not say how this other pharmacist was involved, so maybe covering it up or something like that. Yeah, We just We don't know you. I'll just

At a Crossroads? China-India Nuclear Relations After the Border Clash
"We start the program tracking one of the most potentially SA- serious spot points globally the ongoing hostilities between the nuclear-armed countries, India and China earlier this week they discharged weapons that each other for the first time in forty five years as a four month standoff between their armed forces escalated into warning shots in the western Himalayas. The skirmishes worryingly reminiscent of the circumstances surrounding the beginning of a war between the two in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two. Yesterday. The foreign ministers of the two countries met in Russia in a bid to defuse the military standoff Jonah Slater New Delhi Bureau chief for The Washington Post and Isabel Hilton China dialogue join me on the line now. Thanks both for for joining us is about what was behind this most recent exchange of shots. That rather depends who you believe I mean one. Of the meeting that has taken place in Moscow, which has been some extent. Calming is that neither side will acknowledge any wrongdoing and indeed continue to blame the other. There is a very in general terms there isn't defined line of actual, control? The seem to be signs that the past three or four months across quite a a a length of it. So not just in one sector, China has been a pushing the actual you know situation on the ground by crossing the line of Control China, accuse his India doing the same thing in this most recent incidents and says that it had to fire shots in the ad to deter what was Indian aggression India has said over the repeated incidents over the past few months that China has advanced and then has not on a promises to retreat. So we now have quite an extended standoff which began in the in the West and sector. But has now extended to the eastern sector to what in your Natural Pradesh which to southern. Tibet. So it's a sustained standoff still during the what more do we know about the outcome of the meeting between the two men yesterday Well we know that they met for two and a half hours a lengthy meeting their first in person meetings since the crisis began Jason Curve India's foreign minister is a is a former ambassador to China. He has deep experience there. But in terms of outcomes, what we basically have is an agreement to continue talking it's not nothing but it's definitely not a breakthrough I mean Isabel do you think there's any real appetite for compromise and given China's current aggressive stance globally will one be trying to dial it down I think that I don't see very much appetite for compromise on either side we all you have is highly nationals governments which both. Set great store on territorial integrity and and then of course, you come to the sensitive point where the territories real defined and then you have a you know constant potential for confrontation. But if you add to that I mean what one thing that is very different from in in this border confrontation with other areas of conflict China like the South China Sea for example, where were you have because it's accessible and and territory marine territory that's used by lots of different kinds of people in people from from different countries, you can enact a conflict at a lower level if you like using fishing boats or or customs boats, and you don't actually have to use your main forces. But this is highly inaccessible territory. The only people who are out there really are our armed forces and they have increased. Both sides have increased the presence of their forces really dramatically in the last few months, and in the last few years, they have increased access to the border by building infrastructure building roads and railway building roads rather So you have the potential to mobilize both heavy weaponry and larger numbers of troops When you have a moment like this, do strategically, I would say that China is trying to discourage India from. Joining in a mall full blooded way any anti-chinese coalition organized by the United States so the has been quite a warm relationship between Modiin trump as we know, and and the question is how far India will take this because that could be a Catholic. And during this meeting, come about because the to happened to be in Moscow anyway or is Russia playing the piece Burqa. Well. Both of them would have been at this meeting, but it does seem that Russia is playing a little bit of a role of convener here as a country that. Ostensibly would like to see tensions reduce. It has constructive relationships with both countries there have been reports in the Indian media suggesting that I'm sorry that Russia was doing some quiet diplomacy behind the scenes earlier in this crisis but I think the these these two men obviously would have been there anyway just comes at a very. Sensitive, sensitive, and important time. It's about what's in it for? Would I guess it's less less difficulty in the neighborhood they do as we've heard have rush the Russians do have constructive relations Russia likes to be seen as a broker these days I mean the whole trajectory of Putin's kind of outward posture has been to assert Russia's important so to be able to mediate between a traditional friend India and. country. Rival with whom relations little complicate it China would greatly enhanced prestige. One of the difficulties is that what we know from the reorganization, for example, the Chinese military which is put sheeting. Very firmly, inconspicuously in command, we need to assume I think that decision is made about deployment of troops and our posture go very much to the top So you know without a signal from the tall, the foreign ministers of my decide couldn't actually resolve this. Yeah. How do you think this fits in with the the general foreign policy aims of India. I don't think expected crisis with China I. think that was not part of its. Foreign Policy Goals as Isabelle was speaking about no, India is. Wary of China's rise, it has been drawing closer to the United States and also to this grouping called the Quad, which includes the United States Japan and Australia this one of the interesting aspects about this crisis with China along the line of actual control is that India says at least that it's at a loss to understand why China is doing this it repeated that again today that. Shot, the tiny side has not provided a credible explanation for this deployment. Jay Shankar, the foreign minister a few days ago said repeated that India's is a little bit flummoxed here, and so if China is sending a message that it doesn't want India to draw closer to the United States, India's not really getting the message quite clearly So I think that's one of the strange parts about this entire episode, which is we don't India claims at least not really understand what China's motivations are for this. Quite significant deployment along the line of actual control which began in April and then Burst into actual skirmishes, skirmishes in May, and then the deadliest violence between the two countries and more than fifty years in June. I mean Isabel attorneys right WH- one can't really see what's in it for China I. Mean as you say, this is an area where there's really not very much. It's inaccessible the only people there are the soldiers. What's the point? I think the point is is partly to shore up she gene pins reputation at home is a vigorous defender of China's global position and Chinese sovereignty, and you might well argue that that sovereignty over a few miles of inaccessible mountain compass matter but they matter symbolically domestically in China. It also might be I mean, we've seen a passion of a very assertive behavior. Put it no more strongly from China pretty much since the coronavirus outbreak and a lot of you know if you look across the piece it what's been going on there had been provocations in around Taiwan with you with Chinese. Military flights crossing into Taiwanese airspace very recently and and we have you know I, think for the first time that I can recall in. Since the sixties we have on this board, we have confrontations in both the important western sector and the equally important eastern sector. Now, that's that's kind of unusual that does signal a much more firm intent to send a message even if it's not a message that India understand. So it may be a message that's being directed to the Chinese public that you know we can do this because we are bigger and stronger than India and we will continue to defend. China's position in the world.
Impact of Biden's Choice of Kamala Harris as Running Mate
"Just dividing Picking California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Let's get the what this might mean for the Democrats as they head into November for the election. Marty Shankar, chief content officer for Bloomberg News, joins US Marty. Thanks so much for joining us here. What's your initial takeaway of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden's running mate? Well, I think you know, and it's been spoken about all morning and yesterday afternoon. It's a historic pick. She is the first Whom the person of color to be on a major ticket advice. Presidential candidate and you know, it solidifies what some Think was a somewhat of a vulnerability for Joe Biden. That's with the with the black voters. And I think that you know it was an excellent choice. Well, Marty, you say that. But will there be any pushback from black voters given her record on criminal justice reform and as a prosecutor Yeah, You know, I think that's been a problem for her. If this came out Bloomberg another George stories about her role in as attorney general in California. Oh, and as a district attorney in San Francisco. She has Been criticized for being Dick really aggressive in her prosecutions and resisting remuneration for those wrongly prosecuted, But that was you know, decades ago. Um, I think that you know, it will be a line that GOP uses against her and they've already started. Um, but I think her attributes will probably be able to overcome those What do you think This means? This ticket here the way this potential campaign may unfold in the next couple of months means for financial markets here. Well, you know, I think the important thing you know no one's really talking about it. But Pamela Harris and Joe Biden. Their policies really are dependent on what happens in the Senate if the Senate remains in Republican hands. They're going to have a really hard time getting any of their policies through so I think the focus really needs to be on those important Senate races, their number of them That were supposedly safe for Republicans who are now in tossup territory. And I think place like main on Arizona. So you I think that that's really going to be a pivotal thing for markets. But I do think that if you didn't see it the other day, Ed in the former editor in chief of Barons wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal saying that Biden presidency is going to be great for markets. Yeah, absolutely. And I think you know, market participants are already saying that we had marked as Reon yesterday. Who, you know, obviously. Is it a financier, too? The Biden campaign and so he obviously was very pleased with the comma Harris choice to It would have been his choice. Marty, what happens between now and November in the sense that Joe Biden can be a little bit unpredictable? Is there a way that he could throw this? Well, you know, when people asked the what my thoughts are on the election coming up by continually say it's Joe Biden's to lose. And there is and I think the debates coming up the three debates and the debate the vice presidential debate this just one could have A really important role in how this election place out. So yes, Bonnie. It's quite possible that Joe Biden could say something or perform. Poorly and that may have a real impact on the race, which, despite the polls, I believe is pretty close. Marty, How do you think these candidates for the president and Vice President Biden How will they campaign over the next several months is it just could be a serious of television interviews and things like that? Yes, And I think you know, like today they will do a a century a small audience of participants so she'll be distant with I'm sure with mass And that's the way it's going to be until November. I mean, Donald Trump certainly would like to make it a more on the GOP side. Would liketo have his huge rallies, But I don't think that's gonna happen, so it's going to be as usual and unprecedented campaign. Virtual events on on video and that actually made Plato Bidens and ban it because he's much better in Hello. Prompted characters rather than life. Yeah, Marty, what makes you say that? You think it's closer than the polls suggest right now? What votes? Is the pole missing? Well, you know, we did a story about a theory that when potential voters are speaking to Pollsters. They may say that they are voting for the Democrat when in fact they are going to vote for Trump. I think that the There is this phenomenon and people just not willing to tell what they're That they support Donald Trump to pollsters. So I do think that there's that element of undercounting Trump's support. Fascinating. It's going to be just amazing. Several months. It feels like every presidential election in the United States brings up some new constitutional challenges and debates and difficulties, and this one's going to be no different.

You also need to be a good listener. That means not just hearing what people say. You have to pick up on everything. That surrounds the words like Let's say I came out and instead of saying Happy birthday like the happy face, I could be like happy birthday.

Xerox CTO Naresh Shanker
"Shankar? Welcome to tech nations great to speak with you Becky Beta looking Russia. I thought we'd begin with your current post. A lot has changed since the last time you and I caught up you you are now the chief technology officer of Xerox with a remarkable purview that includes rnd as well as running the technology function more. Generally speaking at that company and what an interesting time to be Xerox eight organization that is going through quite a renaissance at present isn't and I thought maybe you could take a moment and describe. What was it about this opportunity that attracted you to make the move over to Xerox? Yeah Thanks Peter so one I mean Xerox has had a very a very richer I'd say in its hundred year history history of both in invention and innovation It's it's really amazing. Run and What really intrigued me me about? The opportunity was I have the unique opportunity to transform and revitalize the Brandon Business from and a business model and Also you know digital transformation perspective So that is number one fundamentally transforming business so that it's easy for customers to engage And also consumer technology as a company. So that's point number one. The second aspect of the role also exciting was actually the the opportunity to actually transform the the product portfolio across The Workplace Solution Landscape the graphics landscape and All of the new sciences That will help us. Transcend the print franchise and so the opportunity to also launch new lines of business business and create a value Is really a huge opportunity. That I thought was quite exciting so on many different levels food this role and opportunities quite unique so So I don't you know I have to give this a shot because it's Really of very unique opportunity and an exciting opportunity and Off The brand is a monkey brand highly respected in the industry and so wiped out You know Why not and so? That's what brought me here and And I'm looking forward to the run because I see the Mike Three five three and five years being really really exciting to transform the brand at many different levels. Why I'd love to get digging a little deeper in a rush Ashton transformation and you've alluded to some of the areas in which you're hoping to your for example transcended print franchise use your your words to Get into workplace Klay Solutions Graphics New Leverage New Sciences. I wonder if you can tak- maybe a couple of those examples and he'll back the onion a little bit further and describes describes what you see in terms of the pathway with some of those whereas whereas what will be the sources of innovation and what complexion do they take. Okay so when you look at the the print franchise which is our CO business and workplace solutions and graphics We now see ourselves moving moving into a whole new range of sciences to take advantage of close to. I'd say a fifth approximate fifty five plus billion dollar market opportunity That is ahead of us in all of these new sciences so if I look at Beyond the CO business in the areas of packaging In the areas of packaging of you know there are new sciences around direct object printing in line marking All of these new areas areas that potentially are adjacent seas and also moving into the packaging. Cite Ah the digital printing packaging side of business so automobiles will be adjacent agencies to the core business of the next set as an example and then the next set of businesses that launched As an example is it was basically a starting with treaty. The treaty additive manufacturing business predominantly focused on liquid metal That is a very very Interesting technology it's highly disruptive and What's unique about the technology it's fundamentally revolutionizes manufacturing and and Both around speed around speed cost and reliability of what we've done in the liquid metal space is We both technology Where we can actually absorb the low cost and put in take off metal aloys that are commodities and Begin produce high-quality production pots that that have tremendous integrity and density in terms of the materials that we print of low cost reliability and also the speed and so it's a huge value proposition and So that's that's a classic example in terms of Directionally How you meet? This is in the additive space. And you couple that with the treaty software. That now aroused us to design predictive models And also pest invalidate the composition and the quality of those models before they even get printed so the treaty. Ai Software that's going to be coupled with the hardware and creates a very unique value. Did you proposition so so we able to print not just parts that are denso The fast and CHEAPO and and in compared to those made from metal powders right which typically has been where most of the industry has been investing it and and And so what we've been able to Actually mitigate is a lot of the other technologies around metal. Powders you know have long again. The Post production processes Procuring and be powdery. Well we don't. We don't have that complexity. Actually that comes with a post production process and so big knowledge again in the faster cheaper and Much Mo- so What I call it? Preserves the integrity and the density of the the materials have been used So it's a very very exciting play In the three D. space and to produce a complete three sixty experience of to really address what I call the on demand nature chill of manufacturing since we live in an on-demand instrument economy right You pay for what you consume and you'll pay when you consume Emmett

Moussa Sissoko admits getting too tired playing in Pochettino's diamond
"Off to the seven to to walloping enhanced by and this is what they're spurs midfielder Moussa so to say we get tired too quickly. When we play with a midfield diamond jubilee it was October Fest Foot by Northland don't think Soco saying anything and he didn't see with our own? Is that what what do you make of him and she going so public with with this criticism so some of these guys do not. I guess they haven't had media training. I guess they do an odd question. Well you just have no commonsense right as it pertains to your essay question. You don't have to answer it. You can dance around did even if you feel that this is the case what is there to gain for Mussa's so come on and say we get too tired when we play in diamond what somebody's GonNa feel sorry I four u Somebody's GonNa say oh. I'm so sorry that you have to run into midfield. I'm so sorry you have to tackle people. I'm so sorry that you have to get it close to midfield player. Come on man honestly this is we're talking about Champions League and we're talking about playing at home playing against via Munich. We're in this guy is bringing up. We're getting tire. Come on is this further sign Shankar and the beam plenty already that the players and the manager getting further apart yes yes I see that for this reason this as far as I'm concerned the only players in the park who have any right to complain about getting tired because of nineteen minutes are you wing box given what's asked of them in modern day football. If no you complaining about getting tired of formation it points to something and fog far deeper than than just answering a question incorrectly my opinion and given what we've seen from Spoo- so far this season this just visa Mussa's who looking for an excuse to try to explain their poor performances looking for an excuse that somehow absolves him mm-hmm and the rest of the midfield of any kind of responsibility furthermore kind of throws a manager under the bus so which is why answer my question your your question the way that I did. I think it's it's it's alarming to have a player answering the question that Frank. What did you make of what's going on a spur from a farming? The statistics are pretty stop. They've won nine. They lost twenty eight games in all competitions. Why why the exceptional season last season where the their right level? I'm not sure maybe they were playing at one hundred and forty percent. Maybe they were fortunate. Let's say lucky when you see Lucas scoring three goals in the semi final against away from home when you everybody thinks it's it's dead we want something from the Spurs may be the not able to recreate because they were here. It was too much for them and they just came back as human being this season they showed the weaknesses reina what the MHM weaknesses where Eden by a real fortune last season and now you see the conflicts coming up always dot com and from USA Sissoko saying to the Koch. We don't want us to play later because I think we don't like the way you make us play and prominence becomes becomes reality when when in fact you can't answer the questions on the field and last year they were able to do so because they were playing at the maximum because they oughta spirit together and because they were lucky did not anymore in those three statements interesting you'll photon over achievement because guys would look at the starting eleven it is still a fabulous team on on on paper. It is not an argument be made that they'd just been a victim of great by inside on on Tuesday night but also suffering and they've done that before you would say it's just a slow start. If you don't go back to the end of last season on how much of a struggle it was other than Champions League and maybe making the deep running Champions League mass a lot of the issues that we're going to get over chief. Did they overcharged grossly over achieve. You can meet well. I mean even even even the biggest I fan will be like attendance. League final. I look over achieve got fortunate but they took advantage of that good fortune and give them credit for that but clearly there's been issues with this his team since deep deep issues back then that they haven't resolved they did not answer it through the summer and they have an answer yet and early on in the the season for me. It's not only the players is not only puts it. The it's just a whole feeling oh spurs right now seems to be while they go brighton and Walford Nixon the primarily that may be just the remedy that they have all due respect to break known. What extra chime is where we onto your twitter questions Enj- you can see it every day on Youtube Channel
Ukraine president's party leads ahead of parliamentary vote
"In April laniers Alinsky swept victory in Ukraine's presidential election it was a curious case of life imitating art misters Alinsky was the comedic star of show called Servant of the people I mean which depicted a regular guy swept into the presidency with a message of change once in power misters Alinsky wasted no time guy over what's going on in his inaugural speech. He said he would dissolve parliament and hold early elections. The vote will take place on Sunday on the ballot. This time is Mr Zielinski. Namesake Servant of the People party polls suggest it'll make a strong showing he needs it too if he's going to make good on his promises to Ukrainians frustrated with the old guard some of that old guard must be voted out of parliament in the Ukrainian system. The president has limited powers. I Know Snyder covers Ukraine economist most of the governing hours belong to parliament and government formed. I coalition in parliament so despite his victory presidents Alinsky has had pretty limited room for maneuver. He's been saddled with essentially okay the par Shankar government his efforts to make progress in terms of lawmaking have been stifled and so he's been restricted to sort of symbolic steps and I think he wants to take the real lovers of power but I mean can he what what sort of political influence dizzy hat I mean I I understand. He's a good sort of figure for people to focus on but do you think he can gather the political will he needs so if the polls are it'd be believed his party serving of the people is polling somewhere between forty and fifty percent some even in thinking might be able to gather pure majority regardless of whether they crossed the fifty percent threshold or not hill likely have the largest block in parliament and the dominant position in whichever coalition he chooses to form and in part it is a reflection of what people have seen in him so far he's made a series of sort of symbolic steps things like canceling a military parade and instead paying bonuses to servicemembers reducing the number of the presidential staff announcing plans as he had promised during the campaign to move the presidential administration from its old imposing Soviet headquarters. These are things that have signaled to voters that he's serious about change and so far Ukrainians are choosing to believe but I mean the single biggest thing they went to believe is that undue influence on the government by all the guards and the like will go away I mean does he presented credible chance of that exactly and this is the rub as always in Ukraine where the political system is under the grip of oligarchs. Mr Lansky has faced questions about his ties to one oligarchy in particular eager Colombo ski who was the owner of the T._v.. Channel on which Mr Leonides comedy shows ran in recent years when you take a look at the list of candidates for his party it seems to be a real l. sort of grab bag of genuine young reformers and political novices looking to make a mark for the first time old friends and associates from his previous life as an actor and folks with some questionable ties including two oligarchs so the parliamentary list is in some ways manifestation of Lewinsky's desire to be everything to everyone and the question will be if Mr Zelinski does manage to gather a parliamentary coalition and form government. What kinds of laws will start to push firsthand? How directly will he challenged the oligarchy interests? It's still largely controlled Ukraine. So what exactly is he planning to do to address those concerns. His policy platform has been quite heavy on things like introducing more what he calls snug avoided avoided direct democracy decentralizing if you will more power to the people removing immunity from deputies M._p.'s parliament so some somewhat populist moves like that the question of sort of economic policies policies a bit fuzzier. He's promised to continue with the steps required under an i._M._F.. Loan program it's helping to prop up Ukraine's economy even to this day. He's promised to pursue tough anti corruption measures but his legislative agenda. We'll really come into focus. Once parliament forums it is a bit of a smorgasbord something for everyone and it seems to be working as intellectual strategy well working at least as the polls are concerned anyway. What do you think he intends to do regarding relations? Into Russia and the conflict in eastern Ukraine this is another obviously major if not the major issue for Lansky and for his presidency he's taken a different approach in certain important ways to par Shaneco are Sankoh pursuit of very a outright ethno nationalist even approach to the conflict Zilenski has been more willing to talk about and pursue building ties with the people not necessarily the leadership of but the people stuck in the Russian controlled controlled separatist territories in eastern Ukraine. He's been more flexible about the use of language switching freely between Russian and Ukrainian Russian being spoken more commonly in the east of the country and he's already engaged in some direct diplomacy even with Putin himself. There's a potential prisoner exchange in the works and that would be certainly a signal of positive movement and perhaps assign that the two leaders are engaged in a more constructive dialogue than in the past but at the same time Lansky will have to fight off horses domestically who will accuse him of being too nice as it were to folks in the east of getting to engaged with Putin and that will present challenge for him going forward and so all told what chances do you give him move overturning public opinion of reading the government of undue influence of stabilizing the economy of normalizing relations with Russia. What what odds do you give success in terms of the symbolism? He's already had some big successes his figure his person in in and of itself represents a new Ukraine a post Soviet generation or generation that didn't make its name and it's money in the murky division of assets after the fall of the Soviet Union the Ukrainian populace at large already beginning to have a more rosy outlook about the future about the direction of the country the downside is that if he can't fill that shiny new form with the content of governance that could be real disillusionment and he'll be up against deeply entrenched interests and forces throughout out the bureaucracy throughout the economy throughout the state know how to run this system and how to work this system much better than the former comedian turned resident.
Drugmakers will have to reveal medication prices in TV ads
"By the end of the summer, probably when you see those ads for drugs on TV they're going to be adding the retail cost and that is going to be stunning. When you see that? Absolutely a stunner.

And throwing the little ones in the air and going out on boats and gardening 'cause they couldn't be happier. Even the elderly people always look spectacular because they are professional models and actors you fascinating, how it works is that since the law change, and they they had to add the side effects of thirty seconds of the ad is side effects. And I mean, they're horrific when you actually listen to them your face is going to fall out. It's going to be as big as a watermelon. They'll be blood hammer, gene from every orifice, you have huge open Shankar's your livers gonna literally pop out of your body. I mean, just really good stuff because side effects ordinance. Oh, and by the way, you may die. That's also very important. And so that's already in there. But the people are still prancing, dancing everything. Everybody's very happy. And as at the end of the commercial as the prancing Nancy goes on. It's ask your doctor about this drug, which incidentally is a very powerful message because doctors listened to their patients it's not the other way around because doctors want to keep those patients, and so they're writing scripts like crazy and with the patients come in based on the ads is the newest bestest. Drug that's on the market G. I wanna try that. And then then the shocker comes how much is it a here's what the drug companies are saying and what a fantastic defense. They have putting up prices is confusing. Those aren't the real prices because we discount so many of these drugs, and there are paybacks, and you have these organizations that distribute and these various HMO and hospital groups that go she ate with us. So it's not the actual price. Okay. Then simply put up the actual retail price and say prices may vary depending on your insurance, depending on whether you're paying out of pocket, depending on whether you're a member of group and all you do is put that up. That's for example, not letting car companies put up the P or not letting WalMart put up the price of a product because it's confusing to actually know the price. I mean, I am stunned with that. Because let me tell you when you find out how much these things actually cost. Brand new drug, and it'll make you feel better if you have insert name of Edelman disease here. You're going to be thousands of dollars per month. Even if you're talking about a single hit. It's completely insane. Marjorie went through some pain awhile ago and the doctor prescribed Oxycontin, not actually not not Oxy Coton cotton, which is a long atla- long lasting, which incidentally, you can't get. I mean it because these are opiates pharmacies. Just don't stock them finally found one pharmacy near my house. That stocked it and I had called around that cheapest the cheapest price I could get was twenty bucks a pill. And then there were some that were selling them at thirty bucks a pill. I thought I was on the street out there talking to a drug dealer. And there's no generic for it. Either. And wait until you see on TV. Eighty dollars a pill two hundred dollars a pill twenty thousand dollars a year for this course of drug treatment. Well, of course, the drug companies don't want you to see that. You know, why? Because it's confusing. Uh-huh. And it'll stop people. Here's the other one. It will stop people from using the drug and therefore we want to not stop people. We want to help people with our drug. So they can get better. Well, yeah, it you're right. Paying forty thousand dollars for a year worth the drug is going to stop people from UCLA. I got that. So therefore, you should know how much drug costs you should actually get the sticker shock when you go to the pharmacy. When they say you put in your prescription. It's thirty pills when they say, oh, that's twenty eight hundred dollars. I for example, take little as you know. I even like skittles to bring down my boiling point. It's so I don't overreact is. So I don't go crazy have no idea what I used to be like pre lamentable days. And there was a time. When I couldn't even take the generic matter of fact, I don't take the generic we have some. But I for the most part, I take the real thing. Three grand a month. Wow. And that's with insurance. No, my copay because I have Kaiser is very, okay. But it's it's three thousand dollars a month. So can you imagine the advertising for la- McDonnell? And there it is. If you take little if you are handle less in the way, you live life that is completely out of your mind. Blowing up walking around your head is about to explode because you have such high blood pressure be prepared to spend three thousand dollars a month for that drug not counting cholesterol drugs, not counting anything else. At our house. We thank God that we're part of an HMO. We're probably at five six thousand dollars a month worth of drugs. And if we were out of pocket, I mean, it's it's crazy which by the way, so many people are out of pocket, and then we go right into the topic of health care in this country, and how it

The race between the incumbent petro parish Anco and Vladimir Zilenski a comedian. He's only experience of politics is playing the press. In a hit comedy on television. Nevertheless, he pulled around twice as many votes as president Pora Shankar in round one the lead up. Today's vote has been extraordinary. It's or both men. Take blood tests for drugs and alcohol and televised debate in a stadium which is head of the final vote today. We're live in Ukraine is one of the country's most prominent novelist entry Kirk of known for his surreal nightmare stories about life in Ukraine, including death and the penguin and his latest is the bickford fuse Andre welcome to the program. Thank you. Thank you. We spoke to you before the first round what if anything has changed since then in your mind. In the country. A lot has changed because now we have to follow camps. Oh, really? Coralline because they're very into vote for different candidates, and everyone is considered the site crazy irresponsible. What has has emerged during the campaign with regards to specific issues policies plans from either side? The main issues that radian hell, no plans, and he changed several times people in his team. So it's not clear who will be working with him. Once he becomes president. In fact, actually yesterday was slight scandal. When one of his exit visors complained that kids said that she never met him. So I mean, we know that if for Shanta. Gets. Victory. The station will be probably the same. But I've been Persian has done new promises and promise to speed up the direction towards Europe and NATO. Alinsky in his few statements said that he will edit the. Discussed about Ukrainian language will have rights to Russian speakers. Hit accusers lovely all the political inversion Korean being completely corrupted unable to leave the country, peaceful solution with they separate. Territories. One nothing yesterday the debate he used quite a neutral positive word about separatists instead of usual description of them as terrorists and bandits or listens to bring my guests in hurricane to ask questions of you. Mark stevens. I was interested in this whole thing about Vladimir Zilin ski. And it seems to me from the reporting. We're seeing in London that many of the voters and politicians are seeing him as somebody who if elected will be easy to manipulate. What's your take on that? I think they are. Right. Because he doesn't have any firm views. He doesn't have. Well, Rick program. He was reading the debate the members of his team from paper like, you know, their names, and we know that actually he was created and financed by the only gar either moisture who cannot come back to Ukraine, while per cent is president because criminal cases against him. So I think it's quite possible. But also large part of the voters will vote for the landscape just because they are against for us because they may TV channels creative so negative picture of Shankar. And they were completely incredible accusations against on eager key ski TV show. Actually, there was a problem where person of organizing of his own rather. And his brother many years ago, I think was killed in car accident. No, you spent some time in Ukraine have new teaching journalism and journalism ethics. Yes. I was I was interested to run the basis of of that having having been out there and worked with journalists in the Ukraine who were thrown into the situation where they're reporting on quite different than anything that ever done before. And what was in other countries as well as the media, not necessarily really rising to the challenge of these these populist candidate? So I was wondering if you could explain about how you you touched on it just now, but the extent to which the media has been able to really get under the surface of what these candidates have about what's actually really happening in this action. So a question. Yes. The journalists and how they've been able to cover it. Several different camps, of course, maintain which. Most of different oligarchy so gentlemen, schoolwork in there. I'm complying with policies in us over the owners of the TV channels independent. Journalists are working mostly for either slow TV channels all like. Journalistic investigations bureaus and website, and they're the live receiver grants from different international foundations, and actually I think the reason for the new tech against Persian was an investigation by journalist whose name is Smith a nigga who did it for a small TV channel in his investigatory program, and he reveal to the corruption in the defense industry of Ukraine, just before the elections, which contribute, of course, think to better better ratings for the landscape and worse ratings for word finally on eastern Ukraine on you've traveled there in recent times. What's the view there of this election? Well, it's interesting people who are voting for Yanukovych in the into elections. They're going to vote for the landscape the same time people on the Ukrainian side of the done. They now quite at odds with people on the separatist science, but for economical reasons, but generally, I think south east, and yeah and part of central Ukraine.

What kind of president would Ukraine's comedian candidate make?
"Floods. Alinsky a TV comedy actor pays to be on coast. Unseat president petro Porsche Schenker in the second round of Ukraine's presidential elections this weekend Casey Martin discusses how he got there. And what kind of president he would make Roman audio audiology. Glue. We've just had a clip from a campaign video of Mr. landscape taking selfish with his team what kind of character does he play on TV, and how did he go from acting into politics? Let me start off by saying that Mr. Zielinski is a very funny and talented comedian who strikes the basic emotional courts with average Ukrainians, and I think it's very important to put this into context the country is into a six year of war in far eastern regions where Russian backed separatists, and it's gone through a lot of economic pain during these past years and his performances, including his comedy performances where he mocks politicians is sort of escape a release for the population. That has a lot of anger on various issues from lingering corruption to the economic pain. They're feeling in his popular TV series called servants of the people where he plays a honest schoolteacher who becomes president unexpectedly. He plays a. Character who combat's the oligarchy, it's a very popular widely watched TV show in the country, and it presents sort of the ideal president that the people would like to see in contrast. The current president who has a patchy reform record is an oligarchy himself and in the TV series of until the people. There are episodes, for example, where Mr. Dolinsky playing the role of this on a schoolteacher walks into parliament and imagine himself with automatic guns shooting in killing all the politicians in such scenes are scenes that many Ukrainians who are fed up with corruption. I'm sure would like to see perhaps maybe not in real life. But they would like to see someone who comes into power that really changes the way the system here works. I mean, he's clearly struck a code. But how did he make that transition into real politics in real life? He hasn't made a transition to a sort of a conventional Ukrainian politician Ukrainian still to this day. See him as the character in the TV show. They haven't really seen the real Mr. Lansky in neither have Ukraine's western backers nor even journalists because he hasn't really given a lot of face to face interviews. In depth interviews. He hasn't appeared on the streets doing traditional campaign rallies. And so you cranium seeing him often what they want to see is sort of character, who is honest who is just an average person who is fed up with the system in wants to change it, and that's really the unorthodox campaign that he's run his campaign is focused largely on two fronts mobilizing the youth. Electorate the young generation who see him as one of their own and he targeted them specifically through social media. Meanwhile, we have the television series, which a lot of elderly Ukrainians watch. Is he young and south Hello to say he's forty one years of age. So he basically grew up in independent Ukraine and is not Butte as the same as the current political stablishment. Who are all Soviet born and developed this people partially in the Soviet Union. And during the crony nineteen ninety s where a handful of individuals, amass massive amounts of wealth. So he's viewed as this anti-establishment figure by population which desperately wants big changes and a change from the current establishment with fresh faces. Recent polls have shown that sixty or perhaps more percentage of the population. Want a new face as president and new faces in parliaments a complete overhaul politically service really isn't extraordinary situation, a new sort of campaign, but what his policies how do they differ from his opponent? Petra parish Anka, you're right. It's a very surreal situation in many respects, and it's just astonishing. How popular he's become in a very short period of time since declaring his bid for the presidency on New Year's Eve, which was just several months ago. But in reality, we don't really. We know who he really is in what kind of policies he would bring in how different they would be from portion goes because he has been very short on detail. He is avoided as I've said in depth interviews on foreign policy domestic policy giving very general statements in many ways, the general statements that he's given since a group of several former fficials had joined him as advisors have been along the lines of the current objectively that Ukraine is going on in terms of foreign and domestic policy, which means sticking with the IMF program and with the western-backed support, countering Russian its aggression. So what are the achievements and shortcomings of Mr. putter Shankar as president has he done thing to tackle the corruption that seems to be the biggest concern in seems to be fueling so much enthusiasm for Mr. landscape. Let's remember that Mr. Persian go took power when he was elected with fifty four percent mandate. Just a couple of months after the my Don revolution sent a pro Russian president. Fleeing to Russia and Russia at that time after the revolution. Swiftly annexed Crimea and fomented a war in the far eastern regions of the country since taking over Persian go has rebuilt the army, which was caught flat-footed in the early days of the war under his leadership. That government has achieved. A macro economic stability creating the foundations for a healthier economy across the board. There have been significant reforms in removing the room for corruption in rent-seeking in various sectors of economy, including bringing market level prices to utilities and independence to the central Bank. However, the major shortcoming of Mr. partial go, his political achilles heel has been his foot-dragging on reforms that are needed to punish corruption in forming. A functioning court system to give a little bit of context the court systems in this country. Have traditionally been used by presidents and other top officials as a form of leverage over other politicians. They have not been independent. So it sounds like fuse. Yeltsin for his campaign is rather low for Mr. portion goes, yes, it's been rather low. However, he has made a remarkable comeback though. His chances of reelection seem distant his poll numbers about a year ago were in single digits in the first round of elections on March thirty first he came in second behind Mr. Zilenski, he mustered about thirteen percent support that is a significant increase from the single digit numbers that he had prior to that said gang back to MRs van ski his career has been backed by another oligarchy lives in exile. But owns the TV channel that screens his shows. Tell us about eager Cowboys we ski and why he had to leave Ukraine. Yes eager. Komo's ski is. A very interesting character we had to find out your times interviewed him a couple years back. He was camera shy for many decades, but came out into the open of Ukrainian politics after Russia annexed Crimea. He accepted the job as governor of a region that borders the Br. Takeaway regions in eastern Ukraine that Russian-backed forces in separatists took control over he played a big role in repelling further incursions into the country, and we interviewed him shortly after that and found him to be in some ways of very candid figure, but impulsive and obsessive in clearly one who seeks influence, and he had a big grudge against portion cone, those days what we've seen is that Mr Hallam Whiskas channels have been giving a great amount of airtime to misters Alinsky and his TV series in particular, and this has increased support for misters Alinsky. We also see. There are reports that lawyers that we met in the presence of Mr. Colin Moise are playing a sort of backroom role in advising, Mr. linski. There are reports that bodyguards of Mr. cola Moise have been hired by mister is Alinsky to protect him and other evidence of links. So there is a lot of concern that Mr. linski could be a puppet of Mr. cola Moise as Mr Puerta shaneco claim. Tmz Mr. Zielinski, however has denied this and promises that don't be no special treatment for Mr. cola Moise, who by the way promises to return to Ukraine from Israel where he's in exile, currently after the elections. So he may have some practical backing from Khulumani scape. But if we'd have situation where for example, he wins what sort of policy input. Does he have what kind of backing does he have in that sense much of what we know about Mr. Alinsky is potential policies going forward? Come from a group of former government ministers in officials that have become his advisors. They include the respected former foreign minister of Ukraine Oleksandr done. Luke who was a key official in relations with the IMF. And a former economy minister deliver wanian born Ibarra Abramova choose those two along with another individual who's advising him are saying that the policies will be consistent with the IMF program. And that Ukraine will remain on a pro. Western course, however. What really will happen under his presidency remains a bit of a question because he has not formally announced who will be members of his team who will hold what positions in the government and doubts are big. Because in some of the first comments that misters Alinsky gave to the media after announcing his campaign. He said a lot of things that raised eyebrows. For example, he described IMF loans as to expensive when they are actually some of the cheapest sources of financing that Ukraine can get nowadays. So what's at stake here for Ukraine? Why did he's elections matter? There's an awful lot at stake here for Ukraine Ukraine is on the front lines of Russia's broader war with the west which started in two thousand fourteen with the annexation of Crimea. There's also an awful lot of steak for the west here unpredictable leadership in Ukraine unclear governing could complicate Ukraine's relations with western backers including the multibillion dollar loans that are needed from the IMF their key to propping up this country as it faces. P conformed debt payments this next year. So there's a lot at stake for bondholders in Ukrainian debt, for example, questions about Ukraine's leadership under misters Alinsky. And no one knows very much what to expect for him could also test the transatlantic unity behind Ukraine and Russia sanctions over Moscow's, continued aggression in Ukraine, a vacuum of power in Ukraine, should it occur under his Alinsky leadership or more infighting could also lead to instability that could make the country more vulnerable to further Russian aggression. And let's remember that Russia really seize the moment, tactically annexing, Crimea and formenting a war in eastern regions in the post revolution period of Ukraine in two thousand fourteen when there was no strong vertical of power. So high stakes in a very unpredictable situation. Remers thanks very much. Thank you.

And so now we say, you know, and, and a lot of what. But I believe in is is the health problems that we are having this associated with food is a system problem. It's a problem of our food supply.
