"sickles" Discussed on Best of The Steve Harvey Morning Show
"Hey everybody Listen september we want you to be aware of this is national sickle cell awareness month and this is a special interview because our family member junior here on the show was born with sickle cell anemia. He's made his so aware of this and supported the this cause and really bought an awareness to that hasn't been on it before joining us this morning as a renowned physician that has done indepth research over the years sickle cell disease He is the chief medical officer at dillard university and a professor at louisiana state university and to lay medical center. You've got to be smart to get on jobs. He's going to share some important information on sickle sale. Please welcome to the show. Dr corey abor doing today. Good good fight the good fight. Absolutely thank you for being on this morning man. Abra let me ask you something. Man you know sickle cell disease is rare inherited blood disorder that causes a debilitating pain disability and decreases life expecting up to thirty years. So when you say blood is what to explain what that means. Exactly what i'm about to blow your mind this morning junior because the issue is the blood disorder. Something that causes your your red blood cells. The white blood cells to not act right okay and so sickle. Cell disease deals with the red blood cell and it caused it to turn into a sickle shape which means that it can't get through the The veins appropriate and causing pain. It causes you to have difficulty breathing. It caused kidney problems vision problem and you can't then you can die at a very early age very preventable disease absolutely man. Because i know i go through all of that everything you just said. I've had all them simpson's now. This are there any new medications or treatments that suppress sickle cell disease or help with the symptoms. There are for the longest time we didn't have any medical for about forty years for the reason. Why because basically if the black so people didn't put a lot of money in it and other diseases that are kinda liked it. They actually get like fatty times more money in research. Which is you know. Obviously that's always be issue. But there is a better call in bali pretty loop among some other ones and basically get the and and and you know we have all kinds of medicines and all kinds of side effects but you know junior that when you talk about medicine you gotta talk about something. That's already in your body. Glutamate is already in your body and it's kind of complicated like all kinds of medicines are basically when you have anti oxidants. Anti oxidants can be issues in the body but when you have a a medicine that actually restores the nasd ratio. And i notice complicated. But i go deep it. This hip prevent oxidative damage which causes sickle cell problems. So it's good medicine. Inside affects a very low and a lot of people with sickle cell. Don't even know that it exists but it's fda food and it's very low side effects because the l. v. is already in the box. Do you know about this medicine absolutely. We've we've talked about it. It's the newest drug has been approved by the fda and have you ever had to use. Nah i never had to use it and we've talked about getting me some as a matter of fact i'm gonna have bro. Yeah dull appreciated man. Let me ask you something dot. What can we do to bring more awareness and funding for six so disease research. Bench-men is where. I bought the blow. Your mind okay. And this is why i need really handled it. Okay when you talk about one of the number one cause a bit and previously ziv number one cause of death. In new black military coups in america sickle cell trait. Not listening not sold in the people in in In the united states have sickle cell shape million black people trade. And you don't know that you could. You could drop this and have no idea that you to kill trae. Young black men have dropped dead on the football field trade. Not disease every permanent. America's if testing if four sickle cell trait in america in federal law. Black or white and the test is already done on everybody. All you gotta do is call your state or call the house where you were born yet result because criminal that black people don't know that they can drop their right to emerges emergency price. We really appreciate your man and we don't. We're gonna make this a national team. I'm get which will start.
Activating Suites of Plant Genes With Cas9
"When we're talking about gene editing. What are we traditionally speaking about. What will traditionally uh speaking about gene. Editing is more referring to of the dna editing tools such as zinc finger nucleus talim on nowadays crisper cast nine and these tool will go to the genome to modify. Dna letters so that genome editing with talking about. Yes so usually it's what they always referred to. As site specific nucleus is writing. So why is this so powerful. Y'all right kevin if they caught sight specimen nucleus because they can direct mutations various specific to a tailor the dna sequence a user research. Wanna do that. So it's possible because traditionally we do geneticists in random you have to select many mutation many mutants and finally the but with genome editing. You can direct that effort. You save a lot of effort time and resources to achieve the product you want to achieve. Witches admittance so yes for for for listeners. Who are interested in these topics. We've talked about everything from Curing sickle cell anemia using these tools to many innovations in plant. So making very precise deletions indiana that allow a gene to be deactivated or in sst understand what that gene does in. Everybody does this now but your work. They recently reported really turns this entire process upside down. How do you activate genes using crisper. Casts. yeah right so tried to make it he. Here's the we activator. Djing was chris. Podcast is really repurpose. It from a dna cutting scissor to a d. binding grew and then we attached useful things to the grew so then they combine the to the promoter which leading dna sequence ahead of according sepals of gene. Let's say and then that can recruit more proteins which activator so that they contend on the

Nature Makes GMO Fish
"Skeptical of aqua bounties fast-growing salmon while nature makes genetically modified fish to next up. Why the effort to find a quote biological basis for being transgender is misguided and harmful and finally cure for sickle cell diseases inches closer with the launch of a major gene. Therapy trial very exciting stuff. But first up kevin. Let's talk about Natural gm fish apparently. Yeah this is really cool and this is a report that came out in. Cbc news which is canadian broadcasting company usually not writing very favorable things about genetic engineering because this isn't genetic engineering unless it's genetic engineering that nature did so the story goes back to a couple of researchers at queens university. A lorry graham and peter davies found this evidence a while ago now that there was this antifreeze gene that helped the rainbow smelt live through freezing temperatures so super cooling fish and some other organisms can endure temperatures below freezing because of a mechanisms that keep their cells from forming ice crystals. What interesting stuff going on there and if you think about it. These are cold-blooded so when it gets below freezing you have the risk of freezing so years ago. Probably a decade and a half. I guess they found this evidence that there was A this gene that that didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that that it that it looked like a in so we go over now to herring and smelt How was this hearing. Gene ending up and smelt the last time that they were related was by extremely distant ancestor. They said by the article article here. Two hundred and fifty million years ago so that was like the carbon difference period so these two individual lineages of fish split off pretty early a back before dinosaurs or you know and so this really cool so well same time as early dinosaurs.
Weekly Market Recap
"What moved markets this week the week ending friday march nineteenth twenty twenty one a week that was anchored by the fed interest rate decision and policy statement and ensuing press conference by chairman. Jerome powell the markets did not do very much earlier in the week in anticipation of this and originally greeted powell's statement loose monetary statements. I should say with bullishness with some buying occurring. After the fed meeting on wednesday afternoon that reversed on thursday as yields shot up and stock markets were sold off pretty dramatically in some instances. The nasdaq fell three percent on thursday. And today friday things are kind of shifting around a little bit. We had some selling earlier and they have since come in. Nasdaq is now up for the day. And we're looking at losses but not very big losses for the major indexes for this week so a big week especially when it comes to fed policy. Lot of commentary around that. And i'm looking forward to what my colleagues have to say about it. I will introduce them now. I am joined by sticking alpha editors brad olsen. Vp of news. Kim khanh senior news editor. Stephen alpher managing editor of breaking news. And i'm your host and moderator nathaniel e baker senior editor of strategic contributors kim. Let's start with you. What was your take on. The events of the week ultimate another volatile week and we've had to deal with You know stocks kind of being dragged around by yields again. But i think it's also maybe seemed worse than it was because of thursday's sharp selloff. But now we've got nasdaq. Maybe looking at if it goes down for the week before out of last five that it's been lower but it's got it's started to gain some traction today as we were talking. Could actually you know. Maybe we gained more traction pull out a win just barely for the week. I think inflation has been on. Everyone's mind and not whether or not there is inflation. Think pretty much people are green. But there is if you looked at The philly fed that was out this week The prices paid index jumped to the highest level. It's ever been it's been since march one thousand nine hundred eighty though. There's definitely i mean. The prices received also spike sharply. So there's definitely inflation being seen this inflation in the pipeline data on now. The question is whether it's good or bad inflation and a lot of times you know. Everyone's like okay rates are out in. The market's gonna sell off but you've had good years where rates have been going going up a bit because of growth in. The market's gone along with it so there's been a i think a lot of debate about that and also we're kind of seeing maybe some more evidence of rotation which is not necessarily rate striven just people just still taking are looking at growth and looking for these reopening stocks cyclical stocks and Selling some of the bigger tech names to buy those stocks. And that's going to have an outsized impact on the indexes. Yeah and i guess. The question is also whether the inflation that we're seeing is transitory to bar the feds term which basically apparently means they can just ignore it. Or if it's something a little bit more permanent which might get them to start tapering brad. What's your take. Who are the winners and losers. Definitely this week was a cyclical rally. You saw airlines takeoff literally Partially on the tsa data that we saw travelers start to move around the country. A little bit more aggressively young american airlines alaska air united airlines all up about double digits. Interestingly enough the thing. Sanford bernstein even called out some of the value names or more traditionally cyclical names as screening or momentum. So that's one of the first time i've ever happened or as happens in two thousand sixteen where the value names are now technically momentum names of this upswell of of equity interests that we've seen over the past couple weeks really pick up steam and so that that that involves autos materials energy etc over the past few weeks. Although this week energy was clearly a loser on that steep drop off that we saw an oil the admit marathon oil achy. Wheelock smell the trillium. They took it on the chin Crude i think it had its worst day since september Earlier this week so outside of the energy names. They're the sickles. Were still a big winner. Obviously i think you've powell tried to assuage your concerns about how aggressive the fed was going to be I think just he just issued another editorial earlier today discussing you know trying to reassure the markets. Hey the dove even though quite a few of the members did express an interest in in raising rates before twenty twenty three a still a minority of them obviously
Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?
"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff. This curing process helps kill any harmful bacteria and houghton's the shells. We have plenty of show. We have over ten thousand times here. Linda tells joseph. The projects has been relying more heavily on individual choice to eaters recently since covid nineteen shelter in place. orders have shut down many local restaurants. We are encouraging people to save their own trucks. Bring by one insights. Now you know what to do just dump them in the lounge
Michael Friend Advocates For Diversity In CRISPR
"Can you talk about what that role endangered so as a minority being part of minority coalition. How does that actually would say you're planning. Events are one out of the types of responsibilities. you're kind of involved in shore. What for chris. Carr my role on is on of the committee and really is to help develop strong. And broad foot trenton. Targeted monastic communities by by really joe trying to facilitate interactions with community based organizations to include aftermarket universities. Darkly restore cabrera colleges. Hvac us that had a very long standing history of mistrust to some extent. And so i kind of summit up just to really increase bernardi representation in these conversations around christopher and engagement with a very strong focus on making sure we have diverse forces some of our listeners. Who may not know exactly. What could a split on this. Can you just in a few lines. Dealers about guzman on absolutely or christopher is is an organization that really focused on the compensation crispin and they do it from the perspective where they're not be. The four or guest technology did not pro con but to really have conversations as it relates to this technology in house being utilized many ways and the benefits and risks down a bowl and started out by uc berkeley in conversations. There which later a year after moved to boston and she'll hope these. These conversations are kind of women around the country at really sparing Lotta interests around. Christopher and i can say that they've been very diverse voices after just faded indiscretions discussions. That's a very interesting role in vegas to learn more about your experiences by doing this. Just one question before that. How did you get into you. Know the crisper fields specifically was your background and christopher. How did that come to be that. You are involved in organized crisper con is. It's all started. President obama launch of the precision medicine issue which was pm. I in two thousand fifteen. I was invited to be a part of that much and that pm. I initiative is a multi year multi million on effort that was developed to keach around creating a diverse cohort to trutv by disease treatment for all but that program is currently known as all of us program and so from that launch. I started the minority coalition for position mets. So you're speaking under the bit of audio experiences. As an event organizer being part of that rising committee on crisper con- you had mentioned that when pulling together some event it was really impossible for you to find black researchers in the area. So could you elaborate more on the garden. Status stakes are the neck of diversity that you are seeing in the field. Well just to be honest. You know this is that i think at this point is kinda shameful in subsets. Your article article that you've written highlighting some of top companies in fear. Know as you look at even these compromises need couples this leading the work around crisper. You can see most senior today. Shes clearly the lack of diversity that so evident in these companies. And i think what is sometimes hurtful. Is that in this crisper in some ways to successive crisper. Really an johnny outcome A black disease sickle cell disease which is driving an has driven a lot of interest at of course financial investments. And so i would say at this point. It's not looking very good chance of diversity
California Extends Vaccine Access to People With Disabilities
"Starting March. 15th younger Californian to have disabilities or severe underlying health conditions will be next in line for vaccinations against covert 19. State health officials say the plan will open access to vaccines to another 4 to 6 million people. Joining me now to talk about this is KQED science reporter Molly Peterson. And Molly. What health conditions is the state listing that will make people eligible for vaccinations. And do they have any idea how long it will take to get through this next group? Let's start with the health conditions. The state's new directive to providers lists cancer, chronic kidney disease, It's stage four or higher. Chronic lung disease Down syndrome, having a weakened immune condition from an organ transplant, sickle cell, some heart conditions, severe obesity and very high type two diabetes as The health conditions that will make people eligible for vaccinations and as for how long it will take to get this next group vaccinated literally. The state does not know in part because the states as it could only see supplies three weeks into the future with federal partners. So far, state and federal data show. There have been 5.5 Million doses given 7.9 million doses have been have arrived in the state. But we've had some hiccups with that Napa in Los Angeles this week paused first doses to make sure that they had enough second doses for everyone who had gotten the first dose earlier. Counties and their health officials also speak often about being on wait list to get more vaccine Now, Disability rights advocates have been pushing really hard for people with underlying conditions. To be moved. Moved up in line. How are they responding to this announcement? Well, some people say they are happy. Just go lame and talk to one of our KQED colleagues. She's with San Francisco Senior and Disability Action group. And she says Essentially the march 15th is too late and that countless people will die needlessly and will make it hard for people with disabilities who aren't on this list, and people who don't have regular medical care to access the vaccine. I should say they don't know exactly how many people there. Adding 4 to 6 Million people is the range and that's because some folks with disabilities or severe health conditions are already in groups, including job specified groups and age specified groups. That are already eligible. There are a lot of questions left to answer, like Will people be able to do this at mass vaccination sites or will verify and things that like a mass vaccination site? Slow Everything
A Conversation With James Fox
"James thank you very much for joining us today. From you on the show we could stop with you telling us about how you got into documentary filmmaking and specifically how you got into the erie of few documentaries that would take us back to the early. Nineteen nineties where. I had a father who was paralyzed from the neck down with multiple sclerosis and he was a writer and in. So i've been traveling. He was a fantastic to larry's driven ambitious intelligent witty. Great fun guy. We traveled the world together. I was his legs. Is schommer is secretaries nurse. With a lot of fun. We interviewed. Stephen hawking we interviewed race cartilage legend. Dan gurney traveled to formula one races down in mexico city. I mean we did some really cool stuff and my my father was a brilliant writer. I was always amazed at how could put words together and So good at it. Got such a skill and i had picked up probably in the late eighties very early. Ninety certainly the late eighties early nineties. A video camera from a friend of mine. And i was so a amazed at the technology of steve instant. The did was take back then. But the instant playback it's like you know it was amazing. It was a real novelty back then and and what a great tool it was for documenting things and so i started doing video production. You know probably my very early twenties and Probably i dunno. I want to say when i was around. Twenty three twenty four a very good high school friend of mine. One of my best friends. One of my best mates we We bought a car length. We flew to europe from america. We bought a car in london. And we drove this old fiat. One thirty one doors read two hundred pounds for it. We drove it all the way to added justin not just had a hell of a of adventure together and car did make it out four gold back but he was a good friend of sky rene and he started to tell me back back in the us About ufo's in one of my best friends honestly and i had. He didn't talk to me about highschool but he talked about it later in early twenties tonight. I thought he'd lost mind. I really did talking about roswell. You take your you haven't heard about roswell and i just thought well it's been a good friend and i'm gonna have to write him off. He's lost his mind and I was telling the story to a a mentor apprentice. Video production house in san francisco Ellison horn productions have been like this in this guy. Richard van sickle was was one of the senior people at the production house. The brilliant guy. I really looked up to him. And i just one day told him all. You're not gonna believe really good friend of mine is tell me about your phone and then about how you crashed and aliens were recovered in roswell back in the forties. Got my poor friend. He's lost his mind and Richard turns me and he says no. You heard about that. I said haven't heard. But no i haven't heard fully happened. He said they actually admitted that it happened. And i thought well hang on a minute. richard. Somebody i look up to and i respect and very intelligent. He runs his video production company. And i thought well if richard thinks that happened. Maybe i should take a closer look. And so i did. And i went to a couple of conferences and i Befriended some military guys basically exchanged offered an exchange of of documenting them and making you know Making their interviews available to the public and documenting presentations and things of that nature in in exchange. They kind of brought me into their world. Bit and then I think when i was twenty four maybe twenty five. I said hey. I'm a documentary on your phones. And i was amazed at how not unsupportive. My father was because my father was
Gene-editing treatment shows promise for sickle cell disease
"Preliminary data out there that they're calling nothing short of great. It's new data on crisper treatments for blood diseases, Okay? This crisper C l c R i s p R is gene editing therapy? Okay, and this is specifically dealing with blood disorders. That are inherited things like sickle cell. Okay, okay, And these folks who have been treated with this gene editing therapy have shown consistent and sustained response with manageable side effects. The these two crisper therapeutics is the name of the company. They in a Vertex Pharmaceuticals are jointly developing a one time gene editing treatment. They call it C t x 001. And I know they were kind of getting in the weeds here. But here's the deal after giving the therapy by infusion, all the patients in both studies. Have been free from symptoms of the disease is and have not needed blood transfusions. Wow, that's amazing, all of them all of them in free of the symptoms Now, do they have an in home model that you could take up with? It's not there yet course But this This is huge, though. Um, they're also going to be some clinical trial results on the sickle cell gene therapy from another group called Bluebird Bio. S So you got a couple of gene therapies that are taking a look at this sickle cell anemia. You also have beta thalassemia is another one. I'm sure I'm saying that wrong Well, last Mia, but it says Hey, We've made a real pivot and what we've been waiting for. And now we're finding the ability to offer patients long term disease control using genetics and genetic therapy. I've heard some reports on this and one of the woman women that got the therapy. Said It was night and day. The chicken function. I mean, she and I didn't realize how painful Oh, yeah. Sickle cell is and yeah, she said she has a life again. Yeah, it was like Almost immediate Like when they got the confusion. That is awesome. Yeah. Inwood sickle cell with the sickle red cells become clogged and blood vessels and then you get extreme pain that can also lead to like organ damage, stroke, early death things like that. Uh, And so, I mean, this could be huge. How That if they can figure out a way to just edit the gene that's causing sickle cell and they do it with a one time infusion and then your transfusion free. So this this this This could game changer for all different kinds of cheeses. How about this out? The average sickle cell patient right now has to have 15 blood transfusions a year. You gotta be kidding. No, I had no idea and this would eliminate that. That is so bad for the one time infusion.
Minnesota adds 2 more qualifying conditions for medical marijuana
"Is adding sickle cell disease vocal and motor TIC disorder patients to its medical marijuana program. The state says the new qualifying conditions will take effect in August, joining the 15 other conditions that have been approved in past years. The Department of Health says a petition for anxiety was rejected this year, but they plan to revisit the application next year
Interview With Dr. Jason Fung
"Jason. Welcome back to the podcast. It's great to have you on paul. Thanks for having great to be here. We're gonna have a great discussion today. I really loved the new book. The cancer code. And i gotta admit when i dug into the book. It was really what i expected. I was thinking would be more along the lines of fasting. How that could help prevent maybe treat cancer given your background fasting but it was so much more than that. I mean that would have been a great book but this goes really deep into cancer and the evolution of our thinking of cancer over so many years so congrats. I really enjoyed this. Oh thank you very much. And i think that's sort of when i started looking at the issue of cancer. That was sort of how i got into it. Which is why you know most people. I would think think it's going to be about all about sort of fasting and nutrition and cancer but as done sort of deeper into the topic of cancer. There's just so much else going on because clearly cancer is a much more. Broad problem than just attrition because we know things like smoking for example has nothing to do with nutrition. What you eat if you smoke your risk of cancer just goes way way up saying with the best for example. You've exposed as fast as it doesn't really matter what you eat. You're you're great risk of developing a museum which is the type of lung cancer. So that's sort of while it was sort of how got into it as it developed as looking through it more became More and more the question which is never really answered. I think that is really important. Is the sort of how we think about what this problem really is. That is what is cancer. And that's i think one of the greatest remaining medical mysteries because most of these other diseases that we face we sort of know what's causing that. So even when we get a new virus like poof nineteen for example within a few months. We've got this virus like look you know it's still kicking our bod but we've sequenced. We figured it out. It's this is the virus. This is the sequence you know. The dna sequence. This is how it gets in. We've said okay it's the ace two receptors. You know you get at the site of storms. We know so much about it. Even within six months of this sort of brand new disease coming up which has greatest fascinating. Yeah something like hiv. For example it took us years to figure out the actual virus going from age hiv to sort of treatment whereas now you know thirty forty years down the line. We figured out what this virus looks like. We figured out know where detaches we figure so much. Stop so quickly but the problem is that with cancer. What is this disease. Such a strange disease because it's a common disease. It's the second biggest killer of americans yet. If you were to ask the question of what is this disease. People have no idea. Most experts have no idea like you ask the american cancer society and it says well. It's a disease of genetic mutations and that's not really correct because if it was simply a matter of genetics that is You know just bad luck genetically then. Why does environment play such a huge role in this genetic disease. That is if you have a disease. Such as cystic fibrosis sickle cell anemia. All these genetic diseases they passed on sort of mother to child or they have a significantly higher risk in we can identify the genes that are associated with it on the other hand. It doesn't matter if you're japanese if you're african if occasion If you smoke you're much more likely to get lung cancer. So it's not a genetic disease in that sense yet. People have been saying it's genetic disease donate disease and the problem with that. Is that if you don't understand what causes it. Your research sort of goes in the wrong direction that is looking for these genetic mutations and they progress in cancer has really slowed to a halt. Like if you think about how many genetic sort of tours for cancer we have. It's very very few the number of medications that makes a difference to cancer. You can count on one hand in most of those were developed in the early part of the sort of late nineties early two thousands rates with that was twenty years ago and whereas all these great genetic cures for cancer. We just don't see them in because it's not nearly a genetic disease and we have to sort of understand further and this is this is really an exploration of how the way we think about cancer has changed over the last little bit because there's been a huge paradigm shift from being a genetic disease tomorrow logical evolutionary disease which has huge implications for treatment.

Berlin patient: First person cured of HIV, Timothy Ray Brown, dies
"Cured of HIV passed away this week, and we're learning that his influence on local research here lives on comas. Denise Whitaker has that story. Timothy Ray Brown was a Seattle native but living in Germany when he was cured of HIV through a bone marrow transplant. I interviewed him in 2013 after he moved back to Seattle from Germany, where he received that transplant and became known as the Berlin Patient. Brown passed away this week at age 54 still free of HIV, but his cancer had returned. His case continues to inspire researchers of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the first pioneers of bone marrow transplants back in the 19 sixties. And that research continues. Today. Dr. Hans Peter Quim tells me that what started with Brown in Berlin more than 20 years ago, continues to influence the research into many other diseases. Today, we knew by then, already that we could, in fact, modify a patient's own cells to making resistant to HIV, that really no launch this of HIV effort at that time, and my lab Ridgeway and microbe has really worked on are now using the patient's own cells. To make the patient's own cells resistant to HIV team just received a new grand from the National Institutes of Health to continue his research of the hutch. He's essentially kind of gene editing kind of taking jeans apart and modifying them, putting them back into patients. Researchers at the Hutch have expressed their sadness at Brown's death, but say his story really continues to give them and others suffering from HIV. Sickle cell disease and other blood diseases. But there is hope for more to be cured. Come on news time.

ICE whistleblower speaks out, alleges mass hysterectomies performed on migrant women
"Yesterday will learn about a whistleblower, a nurse working at Georgia Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Ice Facility. Leveling, honestly, ghastly allegations chief among them that women in that facility migrant women say that doctor was performing unauthorized hysterectomies on immigrant women detained that facility, which again is privately run. Now, you might have seen this story zipping around social media understandably, and the allegations come from formal complaint that was actually filed with the watchdog at the Department of Homeland Security and the whistle is on the record is named. Her name is Don Wooten, she was employed by. That detention center and along with those unauthorized hysterectomies, the complaint also alleges the facility lacked protection against Corona virus for detained immigrants that detainees suffer from a general lack of medical care. We've been chasing this story all day along some of my colleagues here and NBC tonight we can report a lawyer named Benjamin o Soro representing women at that very facility told him BC news that indeed two of his clients received hysterectomies they believe may have been unnecessary and tonight. We hear on all Lynn spoke with another attorney who represents two different women who claimed they also had unnecessary hysterectomies while detained at this facility. That lawyer tells us that as many as fifteen immigrant women were given full or partial hysterectomies or other procedures for which no medical indication existed. Now we reached. With these accusations, they sent us a long statement disputing. Allegations and the implication that detainees are used for experimental medical procedures. They do say an independent office will investigate. These claims is also says that since two thousand eighteen, only two individuals facility were referred to certified credential medical professionals for hysterectomies. Of course, the referred is the question here. I should also tell you also reached out to private company that runs US facility, or they are not commenting on the specific allegations. They say, they have a strict zero tolerance policy for any kind of appropriate inappropriate behavior facilities and they refute any allegations of misconduct. Were hurt the nurse behind that whistleblower complaint who got this all started Don wooten and her lawyer John Whitty, join me now don wounded and John Whitney. It's great to have you both. Thank you very much. Ms I want to start with you and just ask you to tell us what you did. What was your job at this facility? When did you start working there? I was first employed. Irwin. Kinda detention center in twenty. Ten. been to this facility three on three different occasions. Are returned in. Twenty. Fourteen worked until twenty. Sixteen. On came back in two thousand nineteen. On I was a nurse, their medication nurse. Six eighty, six, p.. We did total detainee and totally inmate care will responsibilities there. You talk about in the complaint. Hearing from women who are detained they're talking about a specific doctor. Performing hysterectomies referring giving uterus collector tell us about how you heard about this doctor and what women said about their experiences with. You have detained women had several detained women on numerous occasions that would come to me and say Ms. Wooten. Historic to me. Why I had answers as to why they hit those procedures. and One lady while up to me here. This last time around between. October nineteen until July the second and she said, what is he is he the uterus collector? Does he collect uteruses? And I asked her what did she mean? And she says everybody that I've talked to has had a hysterectomy. And you just don't know what to say. I mean I. Don't I don't have a answer for why that they would come to me. and. I would say, is it a uterus later? How would you describe? How would you describe the standard of Care? The general sort of? Medical Environment in which these these migrants were detained. The Standard of care. was. It wasn't timely all the time. They would have. A procedure to where they will fill out forms to be seeing. Those forms shredded. They will be towed in area instances that you know there's nothing going on with them just on numerous occasions and as a human, you just don't treat people inhumane. I have a title as a licensed practical nurse and I protect my title with dignity to where I was raised by you treat people as you want to be treated. These sanitation especially doing Kobe the sanitation was horrible would have anything to sanitize with. We didn't have the proper PP so they didn't have the proper PP e they didn't have anything to sanitize. We'd while they were down in the dorms as Wael and when you ask You will be reprimand. Did you have cases of Covid in facility. What were the steps taken to deal with the outbreak in the country happened. When we first the first case of covert. Dan Facility it was covert is not here in the facility. Then we had another case and it was like it was not here in the facility we had several more cases and it was like cold was not here in the facility. You know there was not a proper separation of those detainees whenever they come in and you know there's a fourteen day incubation period. No, they weren't separated. You know whenever you question you didn't have the proper PP. I admit I refuse I have sickle sale. I have kids who have underlying conditions as well. They're asthmatics. So the protocol was not being fought. It was not properly reported to the health department was not properly reported to the CDC nor was it properly reported to sail? You were. Essentially demoted as my understanding from the complaint that from from a from a fulltime employees, sort of more kind of at will. Swing employees. Your contention is that was essentially punishment for your statements about the unsafe environment you felt there your resistance. To working when you had symptoms Zach is that is my understanding correct there. Yes. Mr Woody, you look like you want to say something. What do you want to? I did want to jump in and say that Ms Wooten has been a vocal. Critic of the conditions within the facility for you know for many months and the you know the the the the the the most recent retaliation of demoting her was you know to some extent was just a buildup of all of her per internal whistleblowing over the course of a month and especially since the beginning of covert. Do, you have further Mr Woody I. Wonder if people sincere the attorney attached this. And I know there's a number of groups that have worked together. On this complaint. We've now spoken to one one or on the record and other lawyer anonymously about women the women coming forward with these complaints. Do you expect that we will see? More public declarations of these allegations from women who actually experienced it. Well, it's a very challenging situation to come forward with information like that, and there's a lot of risks to to to way out Weather more will actually be able to summon the courage to talk about it certainly through their attorney is an excellent process is to make those disclosures and with the number of cases that that MS wooten others allude to There's a lot. There's a large population of these of these women immigrants who've who've had this who've been mistreated in this way assaulted Should you know there there's a pool there that could come forward. Let's hope they do ms miserable. What would you like to see happen in this facility? What are you? What do you think the? Adjust. Set of of of changes would look like. Unadjusted of changes would be a change management. If you change management, then there's a possibility, there will be corrective measures but if not changing management then I'm afraid that it would be hard to correct those measures. Don. Wooden, who's the whistle blower in this complaint against this facility ice facility run by Private Corporation in Georgia John Woody her attorney. Tremendous bravery coming forward MS wooden. Thank you so much for sharing your story tonight. I. Really appreciate it.
A Big Warning for Big Tech
"If you thought this week was tough for technology buckle up because a chart showing even more pain ahead for this sector turned mastercard or worth joins us now to break it all down Carter, what are you looking at? You Bet thanks. So I mean before we get to the charges important to say that equities are not annuities right? I mean give backs, dip selloffs corrections the they're a part of investing in. So it's always hard though to figure out how far the decline will go. Let's try to figure that out couple charts. One of five the first one you see here I thought we'd start with this. It's going back to the early nineteen nineties. It's a two panel. Chart on the top. You see the Nasdaq composite. Obviously, it's well above its dot com peak in two thousand. But what's really interesting ironic and telling the bottom panel, the Nasdaq even with all of this has not recouped its relative losses to the SNP. Since the dotcom peaks that bottom panel without circle I drunk, you still haven't made relative high, which just shows how treacherous is to buy into the top of a bubble in any event the here, and now let's go. To the next chart. So now we're looking at a chart of the Nasdaq, no judgments or annotations, and yet what you can see is a clear break in trend I've simply drawn the trend line draws itself, and what we know is we have broken trend. This is the first break of the well-defined trend line that's been in effect since the march low. So where to well take a look at the next, what we know, and this is now the percentage decline were. Down Eleven and a half percent for the Nasdaq index overall. But once you broken trend, what is your reference point of? Could it go down? Thirteen could fifty of course it good. So the next reference point look at the next chart is the January February peak from which the market broke out. We know the S. and P. of course has already gone all the way back to it's generally Feb repeat and so were the market to simply go back to the peak. Of the pre pandemic. Hi, final chart. What it would be is not an eleven and a half percent decline, which is what we've seen so far. But then we're looking at something in the order of about eighteen and so is that a possibility you bet it is. A pretty good testament to first loss. Best loss if something does crack hard, it's usually right to try to take some measures and. Even, as Jeff said, we are not oversold. Okay. So this is specifically Carter for the Nasdaq for the S. and P. Five hundred, which already said breached that pre pandemic level. Is it smoother sailing or because of the tech leadership, we're also GONNA see a decline that that mirrors this but may not be as deep. Well, that's right. So then it's a question about the markets construction we know top by stocks or twenty, five percent. We know that interestingly just before this crack, the top fifteen stocks as a wait just finally exceeded the dot com peak in ninety nine, and so the question is the Nasdaq composite down eleven percent the S. and P. Down only seven percent is there more to go. Well, if the parts composed the whole, the whole comprises the parts if the big parts have more to go the presumption is that the SNP as more nego- Carter to see you, we'll see you later on options action Carter Braxton Worthy Cornerstone Macro Jeff, males you agree with Carter in this call for a decline of eighteen and a half percent on the Nasdaq from the recent peak. Yeah I do and I think the levels he points out or a really clear in that you have the pre pandemic peak but then you also have the upward sloping two hundred day moving average if you look at the triple cues, for example so I think that would be a really natural resting point for this particular correction and I do worry about the overall market just given the weight of some of these names and because I think the rotation and the cyclicality isn't necessarily prime to take off, that may not carry the day. In terms of the broad market I, think in order for that rotation to happen, you need to see things like consumer confidence, the labor market continued to heal. You know we had this divergence between the labor market and how consumers were actually behaving because of this income replacement that is now gone. So I think the uncertainty there needs to heal a lot more before you can see that rotation and have that value cyclicality carry the market higher Steve In cars world in which this decline happens do your cyclical stocks do better than tech? So I would have agreed with Mr Mills a couple of weeks ago that all of them get pole down to General I at the same rate and velocity the general but the the issue that I'm I'm I'm looking at now is that I m seeing if you chart chemicals right now chemicals don't look so bad on their on their ETF while tech does so to the to answer your question chemicals and sickle goals will rally even with the S&P falling out of bed.
Treasures Looted in War
"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.

In this special season of the browns to politics, we are diving into the past in how is impacting our present and future. For protests to political campaigns and youth involvement change is in the air and the fight for liberation continues. We'll be hearing from some of the Black Women at the forefront at today's movement who are fighting for change in making history to ensure that we have justice for all. Her name was even floated as a potential. VP. Pick for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's. It is no surprise that would ever congress is debating issues of equity and justice. Congress will lease voice is one of the strongest and most prominent today we talk about her work as a college student, a member of the Black Panther Party and what Congress is, do we to fight systems of oppression to reshape reimagined our political world? Congresswoman Barbara Lee thank you so much for joining us and happy belated birthday. Breaking very good happy with you. I'm really excited to talk to you today and for our listeners, the congresswoman is such a legend and all of her work that she has done in. Congress over the years especially for Black Brown and indigenous communities by I have to ask you this question because it's something that I just wanted to talk to you about for so long is. You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black. Panther party because community worker and student I was very involved in a lot of the work with party members. I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests. In fact, there was the Black Panther party that raises awareness about sickle cell disease as a as a disproportionate impact African Americans Fast Board Twenty Twenty people in the African American community and Black and Brown news still struggling disproportionately as it related to food security food desert healthcare disparities, unequal education. I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward. You know there's this Symbol in a gun and Andy. In government in Ghana called and Copeland. If the bird beautiful bird looking back holding an egg in her mouth and like in order to move forward in order to blackboard and you have to look back, we have to know our history we know where we've been and we have to build upon that so that we can move forward it. Now a wonderful young people in the Movement for Black, flags, or dreamers all the movements that are taking place are a continuation of what I see as the civil rights movement of of today, as well as what Black Panther Party actually started as it relates to stand down and and thing that that policing in our community. chain stop disproportionate killing black, and Brown people

Global Health and Malaria with Dr. Chandy John
"Today we. We have with US Dr Chandi John He is the Ryan White Professor of Pediatrics and the Director of the Division of Infectious Diseases in global health at Indiana University School of Medicine I should note that this episode was recorded before the pandemic started since then. Dr John's Infectious Disease Expertise helped lay the foundation for to covert related studies tactic, which is looking at how many. People in Indiana Wade. Actually be infected and discover which is looking at how immunity responses occur. After people are infected, we should also note that his research about sickle cell anemia, African children was recently published in the New England, Journal of Medicine and people might want to check that out as well Chandy. Welcome, thank you so you're the Ryan Way Professor Pediatrics. Who Is Ryan White? And what does he have to do? With Indiana Ryan White is in Indiana. Indiana heroes everyone in Indiana and the United States should know about him. Ryan White was really the first child in the United States, who was publicly known to have issued in make a secret and the reason he got into the news was because we lived. They didn't want him attending school with all the kids and he insisted on going to school. This is a very brave individual and kind of push this where a lot of. Of other people just kind of shrunk into themselves and bring it up because it's one of those things where it's like I remember I did live in Indiana at the time, but I remember it being in the news for people old enough. It was a huge huge deal I mean because up until that point. It felt like it was a pretty stigmatized disease were many people were blamed, but he seemed to be the face. If I'm remembering correctly. Correctly like the first quit I'm putting in quotes. Nobody else can see my equity. You're like innocent. Where we sort of public in this child at a big deal that everybody was so public about it. Yeah, it was a huge deal is very brave of him because he got a lot of discrimination and hate mail, and the rest of it, or you know hateful comments right to his face where he lived but he refused to sort. Back away from that and also I. Think very importantly. He also refused to be the quote unquote innocent face of it. He said that everybody who has HIV is say they should be respected. However, it was easier for the public to handle that than maybe to handle gay men who they thought of as other or or something he really did in the United States help to give face HIV that many people could relate to more And I'm the Ryan White Professor, of Pediatrics, and I always mentioned this because our whole division was supported. By an endowment for the Indiana University, Dance Marathon, and that endowment and the Indiana University dance, marathon itself were started by Ryan White's best friend from High Yeah To Stewart I believe her name was, and so she started at more than twenty five years ago and to start, it was started in honor of him, so he was supposed to start at you that fall and died before he could start the started, and she organized a dance marathons, and they've evolved this massive huge. Yeah, and if your local Indiana's a big deal with your kids and these guys are amazing, high school kids in college, kids and they raise funds for Hospital for children, but for the first many years they raised it just for our division, and so that was amazing. It's funny because I knew I knew there is money for Riley but I didn't know it was for that purpose and I. It's funny. One of those I knew Ryan White was, but when I moved here I was like. Why do they have the professorship year? Like didn't know He. INDIANA. No, it's it's amazing, and so now the funds from the Indiana. Brisy dance marathon go to the whole department of beating. US For the first twenty years it was to raise his endowment, and so when people ask me who this rich donor was, who gave the endowment that allowed us to create this amazing or build this amazing division It was It's the college kids, and and I should also very important dimension. The connection there is that writes. Doctor was Marty climate. Who is the? The founder of our division, so that was when they wanted a way to honor Ryan White and and support the things that were important to him. The sought out Dr Climate. He said supporting research in this areas is critical, and that's what they did. Well, that's great and not just completely veer directions, but you know the time what we wanted to talk about. About. Today is global health. So I like to always start by talking to you like. How did you decide? This is the area that what you wanted to be in in studying not just infectious diseases, but how they the impact, the world, not just even the United States. How'd you get here? Yeah, so there are many answers that question, but the beginning always starts with. With my parents so My parents are from India. They came here to do their residency I. always mention because this is a fact that. When they came here, they were paid to come here, so there was a doctor shortage. So when people are talking about all these terrible foreign medical grads and stuff boy. The US has relied on those foreign medical grads and. Show all the time. Yeah, it's it's a big deal and they've added a lot to the country. research wise clinical is an in every aspect of so. They came here for their residencies, and then they went back to India to work at a mission hospital and so we sort of went back and forth from the United States indie when I was a kid, but when they were there this mission hospital, its mission was to serve the poor, and so they would take us on rounds or to the hospital on a fairly regular basis because they really wanted us to be sure to see why. Why they were doing what they're doing. Their lives were very busy. They both doctors and so They were at the hospital a lot and you know kids could sort of feel like hey, why aren't you you know here with me? But we never felt that way because we saw what they were doing, and it was important, so that sense of those who have have a responsibility to serve those who have less because none of us earned what we have. It's all just you kind of like what we started with.

"The real fact of the matter is we see we end. You know this because you follow this kind of activity as well because you and I have done shows on this before but there is a major military roll out and there has been over the last three or four months and this is a worldwide rollout. It's also in the United States. I was tracking this. Like how we track the normal military movements the train cars. This was far beyond jade helm levels. And we'RE TALKING RUBBER-TRACK TANKS. Were talking everything. Set up for the whole nine yards fool on civil unrest but they were ordering a lot of really weird equipment and when I look at that equipment and and what it is I'm like are. We getting invaded there. Some kind of invasion. But then you look at this and it's on a total global scale okay and we saw a lot much like you and I monitor military movement. I had been monitoring UFO Movement for years. But recently I got back into it because I saw the metrics. Really jump on everything so where we used to see a lot of fake. Ufo videos on the web and stuff now. There appears to be a lot of a really real videos. And we know there during the lockdown era. Because there's people on these videos talking about. This is the lockdown. This is you know this is why they got US locked down. Look at this and there's literally what appears to be armadas of UFO's so when. I started checking into this. I found video of That was mashing up from multiple camera locations on the ground in multiple cities. So I could confirm that video was real but to top it off I actually got onto NASA and I got space based footage from Nastase cameras where you can see these armadas. Basically moving in I got this posted unintelligible. You could probably search like our Mata Ufo Armata in the search box on the website but The point is we're seeing a major uptick of all this. All of a sudden we saw that the joint There was a special joint task force. That's in charge of securing the Washington D. C. Capital area. The they're in charge of securing the the entire seaboard. Clyde the air the ground They can did the the president out of rubble if the if the White House was compromised or strugging anyway and everything appears to be in defense mode now they requested some really strange stuff for Washington DC when a special task force came in unsecured. Dc and there was some asteroid threats in this really happened and there was a day where there was a several day period. There was a convergence of like thirty asteroids and they were very worried about that but now that I step back look at this and I see the type of radar systems of they were ordering in and around Washington DC. It all came together because seeing these radar arrays. They requested the old school radar raised. And the reason they want. This is because see the. Us government knows that these radar arrays can down extraterrestrial craft because of the way that The Anti gravity works on these craft and the fact that gravitational waves are the method that these craft used to propel themselves or perpetuate themselves this radar these old school radar systems. Actually can bring these craft down and they know that it's interesting because I mean the one thing that really impressed me and I as a lot of the video the Daniela produced and so the people been putting on the Internet is the investigators and this is what makes it even. This is where you can say. This is not something has fake. This is not something You know they're saying that's what it is and it's not people that are. The witnesses are wearing masks. That's what I thought was interesting wearing face masks so obviously this is happening in times of cove. Nineteen because I mean if the if you see. People like standing there with no masks on their faces. That'd be great with all everybody Has a mask or and it was a group of people that were full. Investigators in Brazil standing there at the foot of the a the base of the of the mouth their maget and they're like looking at their smoke coming up from the trees and they're pointing out. I don't speak Portuguese but they were trying to interpret it appointing outfit helicopters flying over there. there was something huge that crash there and they were saying they were using explosives to blow. Open the door or blow up in some sort of a whole inside of there. What were you saying? Shout KEEP IN MIND. Klay these like these explosions. You heard I mean. They sound like breaching charges. I covered the Las Vegas shooting. They breached those doors and I started checking into all these various types of charges military uses swat uses. It really did sound like breaching charges and it it up. You know everything you see on. That video looks authentic. You you've got. During the lockdown era you know all of this is matching up and then coupled with the fact that these helicopters I mean these are low flying helicopters and they're they're very nice holiday. The other very advanced. I was looking at the video. Looked like something out of video game. It was like wow. These helicopters are really advanced. They don't look like anything. Our military has which makes me wonder here too. You know we were talking about a joint participating exercise here Daniel. Are we actually speaking of Space Force as well as Brazilian army or Brazilian Air Force? Yeah well There was information shared with me. Only yesterday actually That goes into the territory right because I did this show with dates Badges are on Sunday we did it life and he just gave us an update because he was the first actual guy from Brazil. I could get to to come on my show and talk about this because I wanted someone who lives there to talk about it and we talked and then we had a very strange call. I think we will get into that on your show today. to but but Yeah yesterday He sent me In new information because on his Youtube Channel In the comments of another youtube video of his shortly after our show somebody posted a very interesting message. Right and in that message There is talk about space forest. What I find very intriguing as their names actual names Terry. Snow by there is coordinates. There are mission beyond names of missions. So this is very intriguing de very open. Very open about what? They're saying what they're doing and what the process is and how they were able to track this craft. Outta they were able to bring it down. And it's like ship says Sheppard and said they were using all kinds of different New kinds of Weaponry or even as you say old types of weaponry including old radar attract these things and to bring them down but You know we're GONNA actually we're gonNA take a break and then we're going to talk about this information. That came from Davis Dave's Baltasar where I will read what was said. And what was Given Dan we're.

Health and home is coming up next. Welcome to the faith held in home digital podcast. I'm your host Makeba Giles. Here we share information and resources for physical emotional and spiritual being to help families live and inspire lifestyle and encourage healthy living. Thank you for joining us. Black history month is when we focus on trail blazers in the African American community. Ev includes medical pioneers. Who have made an impact on conditions like sickle cell disease a genetic blood disorder that this proportionately affects the black community although the disease was discovered one hundred years ago. It has historically lacked treatment options. That is until now joining me. From San Francisco to discuss the latest advancements in managing sickle cell disease is Dr Tale Love President and CEO of Global Blood Therapeutics a biotech company based in San Francisco. Thank you for being with me today. Dr Thank you for having now on first doctor you fall. On the footsteps of other trailblazers in the world of sickle cell disease what are some of their contributions to our understanding of sickle cell? A great question and we have made progress in sickle cell disease into positions african-americans. Vision that I'd love to mention our doctor. Charles whitten from Michigan and Maryland Hughes Capstan. Both of those physicians recognized in sickle. Cell disease was primarily in their day killing individuals killing patients at very young age and they recognize that it was actually infections. Typically PNEUMOCOCCAL infections Dragging the early debt. And it was through their work that we recognize that if from screening for sickle cell disease and we offer simple things like antibiotics and pneumococcal vaccination. We could prevent bills premature deaths and they were writing now. Sickle cell patients rarely die as children. they live typically in the forties So that's why we now need the next breakthrough of innovation. We've been able to get from survival in the teams to survival in the forties. But now we need to go after what is driving the cause of death in the forty. What's driving the disease so that we can powerfully? Go after them and that's really where we are and that's really what our company is focused. Absolutely now you have worked as a physician for many years. And now you're on the Bio Pharma side of the industry Can you tell us? Is that why you came out of retirement to continue your work? I can't and as you said I've had a long career as a physician science and as a result of that I was able to retire relatively young and I moved to the wine region North of San Francisco But I got a call. One day From the founders of global blood therapeutic and they said we have an idea that could fundamentally go after sickle cell disease at its root cause and change outcomes powerfully so I looked at the finance and scientists one of the things that I do understand pretty well and because I retired. We had a family meeting. And when we discussed this other family are two daughters literally fed that you have no choice. This is something that could be very powerful cell patient and this is something that could be powerful for our community our African American community so I came out of retirement because this was very personal to me. It's very personal to our family and it has been the most wonderful paying that I could have done in my life really focus on helping patients that need help helping patients that have been ignored in providing a very powerful solution to a very serious bomb in. That's wonderful that you Took that passion to decide to come out of retirement to help others as greatly appreciative for all that you do. Now there several misconceptions associated with sickle cell disease Can you explain some of those and why it's important particularly for the African American community to be properly informed? I sure can. So you know the sad thing is that many of the misconceptions of sickle cell to these are actually Jew by the devastate aiding nature of the disease so one Stereotyped sickle cell. Patients are lazy They'RE NOT LAZY. They just don't have blood. If I took half of our blood out we would not feel. We would not have the energy or the stamina to get through a full day of normal activities so these patients are profoundly anemic because of it the and sadly they've been stereotyped as being lazy because on the consequence of their the the other big stereotype. Is that big are drug. Seekers and in fact sickle cell disease is causing the red cell body To be destroyed and the red SOx content liberator our blood softens that causes swelling blood vessels which results in cells sticking together and closing off blood vessels entirely. That's very painful. But you imagine attorney on your finger. How POWERFUL HOW POWERFUL PEOPLE. That would be so. These patients have been labelled as drug seekers when in fact they are seeking relief of some of the most excruciating pain that you can ever experience but despite that they'd been labelled as drug seekers when they're just seeking relief from catastrophic catastrophic consequence of sickle totally and absolutely now and we mentioned earlier their progress has been made in the research and management of sickle cell disease over the years. I'm tell us what kind of options are now. Available for people. Living with the disease last year was have made in your sickle sell in the United States. The FDA actually approved not one but two novel drugs that are specifically aimed at treating. The problem sickle cell disease. The first one but I'll mention was developed by a company named Nevada's That drugs is an intravenous drug that Taken once a month and it's designed to block the inflammation in the blood about that. I mentioned which are leading to the exclusion of blood vessels as measured by these Basil occlusive. Crises are paying crazy so that was approved in early November of last year. Literally a few weeks later the FDA turns unapproved drug and drug is unique in that it was approved to treat the fundamental problem of sickle cell. Disease that in the hemoglobin organizing these rods which causes the fell sickle which causes them up. Sure which leads to all the downstream consequences and because of what our drug does he was. Actually the third strug received breakthrough designation for sickle cell. Disease never happened before south and it was also the first drug to receive accelerated approval for sickle cell disease so big innovations big recognition by the FDA that if you can go after the fundamental basis of the leaf. That's how you can make changes. My malady would be HIV. We used to treat the infections called H. Though when the big breakthrough came from we actually treated the various. So we're now developing therapies. Which are gone yet. The root causes sickle elderly as opposed to just focusing on the downstream consequences. That's where you're gonNA make big innovation and that's where you start to make people that have normal. Life expectancy and to be very well managed indeed the nets phenomenon that those treatment options are now available. Four people in great to get that information out there so that people can know In addition to those treatment options that you just mentioned I'm well some things that people who are living with the disease can do on the day to day basis With their daily lifestyle to help manage sickle cell. Well I think there are I. I always thought that knowledge is power and I think the number one thing particularly with the Internet now is that a lot of resources that sickle cell patients and families should be going to learn about not only our innovations in therapies but about how to manage their disease overall. So a couple of flights that I would mention Sickle CELL SPEAKS DOT COM. That's www that sickle cell speaks dot COM Meta information about our novel medication Ox Brighter can be found on option provided DOT COM. That's O. F. B. R. Y. T. Hey dot com.

I know that there are certain things that you have to do with their home. And once you get it, you want to be if you're blessed enough to have a nice place to live you want to make sure that you honor that and take your maintenance maintenance, and it's very difficult in the winter. It's very difficult as you called you don't want to go out there a lot of motivate. You wanna do your skin care regiment, but their stuff you have to do the house too. And so we're going to cover some of that today. But before we start talking about mortgages and remind everybody that you are a credits. Contessa? Oh, yes, you can help people out in weird scenarios. Can you? Give us your M L S number eight years. Yes. So a little business three six seven eight two six and the branches one seven eight eight now, we're going to cover some of that winter maintenance that you have to do in your house like we're gonna talk about ice dam removal and things like that. But in general, you're not the person that's up there and taking care of these things you're the one that actually gives us in the house. That's right right before you have the ice dam gal. That's me or after you have the ice dam gal. What do we do to finance fixing? It can help you with both of those things. Right. And I was thinking about you in earnest this week as I am in the process of doing my taxes. Boy. So I was taking the advice that you talk to me last year about about things that I should do. Because last episode. We talked about non qualified mortgage. Can we just remind people with those? So those are the out of the box mortgages, if you've gone to a mortgage professional and tried to be pre approved in the past, and you've been told all you're self-employed. So we have to calculate your income. This way are all you qualify for a thirty thousand dollar mortgage. Because of the way you do your tax what? Payment is fifteen hundred a month. How can you tell me I can't afford? You know, what I was paying? And it's just the way we look at income. Well, there's a whole new body of lending called non cwm non-qualified mortgage. So that sounds like not how I really wanted it to sound funny title. And I appreciate you stopping and going. Yeah. I know it sounds like it sounds counter intuitive that that's the name of the product. Just like when we talk about first-time homebuyers, you go. Okay. This is my second time buying a home, and you have to pause and go, but you still qualify. It is the. Acknowledging that you as a potential purchaser need to talk to a professional because the words are not always intuitive. And there's no shame in you, not understanding this as a layperson. You for pointing that out because we in the business, we tend to talk in acronyms, and we talk probably faster than we should. Because my mind is going so fast him already qualifying you before I've even getting. So so, yeah, these terminologies are odd, and they're even odd to people in our own business. I was talking to realtors all week long about nine cwm product. And they're not used to hearing these phraseology. It's not normal for anyone not just a first-time homebuyer second time homebuyer, it's it's odd in the industry. So yeah, we're gonna uncover a little today. That's why I encourage people to make sure that they called it can call into the red hot real estate show at six five one six four one one zero seven one six five one six four one one zero seven one and don't worry. Shelly. We'll give out your personal number that they can call you as well to guard as you're working thing. Sometimes it's just does this look, right. Am I doing myself a service by doing this with my credit paying off the spill doing this? You know, sometimes it's like if your general goal is financial independence and that home ownership is part of that general goal. Do you just need to talk to professional? Sometimes I have learned that that's one of the things that I tell people all the time the think it's really weird that I enjoy my job so much. I said, you know, what between the red hot real estate show in the mom show? The shows that I host here on mytalk. I get a lot of information that I needed anyway. Right to work, and there's the band. Exactly you make my life easier. Because when in doubt, I know that I have somebody that probably knows so much better than I do. So that if I'm floating around online and something pops up, and I was trying to research it myself, if I get stuck in the weeds, I know that I get to come in ask you guys. We'd better Shelly. So you we'd cut in the summer in the winter. We talked about. Earlier this way circle. It's so like, I think that this winter has been particularly bothersome for homeownership and winter care for your. Right. I went out, and I knocked down all of the ice sickles icicle has said legitimate be become a Stalag tight a Stalag tight. And then he was right above one of the bushes in my art. So then that grew up. So it was a it was a poll of ice. Now is what I had to make this cannot continue. But even if you try to stay on it. I know that there were reports all over the twin cities of running out of salt running people couldn't buy roof rakes all these things. And so is dams which may have been a minor problem for a smaller people is probably something that's gonna come up a lot. I agree. Yeah. And as I drive through the cities it we're always stunned. You know, look at that one. They're all over the place. Glacier. Fortunate. That is not what we wanted. When does it actually by definition how much ice do I have their win is that actually an ice dam? That's a great question the mortgage professional. I do not know that. But I do know that it's an indicator of lack of insulation. Okay. And it's an indicator of heat loss. How come you're getting that those ice stalactites on your homes, they can pull shingles off? They can pull your your gutter system out. They can do, you know riding damage to your would as they thought. So they're important to take note of it. Yeah. Is not a good time to be an ostrich and put your head in the snow and forget about those ice jams. So it's good to call a professional. We had one scheduled today. But he was so busy with. That he was not able to to make it in to the roads were were a little bit troublesome for though. Yeah. Yeah. So I had I had really good questions that I was excited to learn about about ice dams. I chatted with my husband who says he's an expert about a lot of things. I'm very fortunate. The computer stuff all the he's that's his gig. Enough to have a husband at the time kind of thing. And I do not know if I ever want a husband again, but I do have what I call my my current, gentlemen, caller. And so I did ask him. Okay. Because I knew we were going to talk about is dabs. And so I if anybody has any suggestions on this. And you could tell me whether this is a good suggestion. So the number again for the red hot real estate show is six five one six four one one zero seven one that's six five one six four one one zero seven one so Shelly from Sierra Pacific mortgage. Let me know if you've heard of this particular thing that you can do to try and cut down some of the ice on your roof where she told me to do he said that I should get some of my salt might like sidewalks and put it in a sock and entitled like a tube socks tight off. And he said that I should lob it up on the roof. And he said that if I put it up there then like near the middle of where the ice was accumulating in the lake not far into the roof, but close to the ice shelf because I did not down as I said the icicles. But now, I'm concerned this brick of Isaac. They should ask your husband. I just want to know if anybody listening has heard of this dictator thing, or is that my particular gentleman callers from Kansas, and this is something that they do. I know maybe it does not work in the Minnesota climate. But that's what he told me put some. Well, maybe he's magical or maybe it's just garbage. I'm going to try that when I get home and somebody calls me and says that's terrible. It will eat your roof already. How it could hurt? But I don't know. I don't. Knows about the whole process. But I mean have you particularly dealt with a number of clients that had to deal with ice dams show, mostly I get involved after the fact you've had ice time guy come out, and look, and now you've got all this damage, and I can tell by looking that, you know, this is a recurring problem. This isn't a this year problem now, they've had rot damage dry rot. Maybe maybe maybe they've had squirrels in their attic. Insulation. And that's why the Heat's escaping where I can jump in. And I can show you products and rehab loans and things of that nature. They can help not only with that repair. But others that you may be have been putting off. Okay, shelley. We have a couple of callers that call so Santi who should we go to first of these callers? I think they have suggestions for the question. You good. Okay. Who do you want to start with China? I think this is done on the phone Donna are you prepared to call into the red hot real estate show? We're having fun issues. Again. Let's try this again. So we'll hold on for that. And Donna if you have a we'll just sign is going to work on that. And see if she has a suggestion, and what we can do like, I don't have a good on rake. Do I am open to suggestions on what I should do society? You let me know if you have that figured out. And so we are actually going to talk about those rehabs what we can do with those kind of scenarios and what we have working on. And we're going to cover a number of items stay on what you should do.

We shall see like coke just made a orange vanilla cream sickle soda that would be. Well, look let. Let's let's just let the people Coca Cola. Let's talk more about this get back to their agenda sucking the earth fucking dry of water. Yes. Yes. Yes. Let's talk about FOX and friends finally because host Pete hegseth. Yeah. Had a moment on the show where he decided it was time to tell the truth to the American people. So check this check this moment of clarity from the host. As I told you twenty thousand nine resolution is to say things on air that I say off air. I don't think I've watched my hands for ten years. Really? I don't I don't really wash my hands me. No. I not kill myself journals, not a real thing. I can't see them. Therefore, they're not really you're becoming a Munich to all of the all the sexy. I can't get sick. Now. You know? I don't believe that. He has not washed his hands in ten years. Right. You would be ostracized. I'm sure she is incidentally, washed them well in the shower. Yeah. Although he accidentally on those disc loves. I'm staying certainly has not done dishes. He's a man. That's like, no, right. You do my dishes. Yes. He what I will believe though, is you probably doesn't wash his hands coming out the bathroom. No. I gear because he has that kind of because this is a thing. Like, you know, I a lot of people were writing full on articles about like this fallacy of germs being invisible. Or whatever. And then other and then people were like, oh, you triggered the lives. Like, yeah. Dude. He's like, my deadpan humor styles crushing it. But this is a kind of logic that I see being used a lot which is sort of like he's the kind of bridges like, I have a strong immune system. So I don't get sick. Therefore must mean germs are not real. It's the flu shot thing that we talked about on this show. Right. Like that. Because you don't get the flu because you're young and in good health that you shouldn't get a flu shot, and it's like, well, you might be carrying the flu and killing little children and elderly people and same deal with like, not washing your hands like that that might work for you. Because you're a young strapping man in his in his peak, Pete hegseth, but I don't even know what he looks like. But yeah, I mean, this is like the height of privilege just being like, yeah. I don't I don't wash my hands. Like, it's a mutant unit. Reprint you're not. There are people who are immuno-compromised who could not fucking you entertain. The idea of going somewhere, there could be dirty or whatever. But you know, you want to read a really infuriating portion of history. Read the effort. The effort of the guy who like came up with germ theory to try and get doctors who deliver babies to wash their hands, and they just refused because they thought it was beneath them to wash hands to wash hands inbetween delivering one baby and the next and so women would die in childbirth like unnecessarily for years and years. And then when they finally incorporated it into the routine like ninety percent of these people's lives were saved crazy. Yeah. In junior year, my high school they had to write a research paper that was like the thing every junior had to do and my best friend wrote a paper like an eleven page paper about handwashing. Yup. And apparently to really wash your hands. You're supposed to soap and water them for too happy birthdays. So you gotta sing happy birthday twice thorough for it to be clean and unused boiling water..
