"Cornish in Washington. There's a quote you often hear from President Biden. Show me your budget, and I'll tell you what you value well. Today we got to see what the bite administration values with the proposed $6 trillion budget for the next fiscal year. It's the biggest budget in recent history, and it reflects the president's ambition to overhaul the U. S. Economy. NPR White House correspondent Asthma. Holland is here with the details now, but let's start with those numbers. What's in this proposal? Ah lot. I will say, you know, the scope of this should not be overlooked. This is a budget that is calling for wartime like investments. $6 trillion for this first fiscal year that would climb to $8.2 trillion by 2031. And it would mean running up deficits of at least $1.3 trillion a year for the next decade. I mean, these are just really massive numbers, and there's essentially no new major policy initiative in the budget. It really just aggregate some of the major plans we've already heard from the White House. Thies air plans to create more jobs, improve infrastructure and offer things like universal preschool. The White House says it's new plans would be fully paid for with additional taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and this budget does show that tax revenue would nearly double in the next decade. The administration is defending these eye popping numbers as a sort of necessary fix. After decades of under investment, the added spending it says, will help build a more productive economy in the long run, and they're doing it, they say. When interest rates are really low, here's acting budget director Shalonda Young This president's waiting for the historic, staggering agenda that changes a long term view of how this country invest in its infrastructure and brings its competitiveness with those like China Back Tonto, where we should be, which is first in the world. You know, as my remember covering the Biden, Obama administration and government spending was an enormous political issue. Now we're talking about trillions. What's going on? Yeah, you know, I will say we're talking about a lot of money, in part, just not because of what Biden is introducing, but about where the federal government is at this point. The Congressional Budget office that actually predicted last year that overall, the federal debt was expected to reach record levels that it would surpass the size of the entire US economy, which is just a kind of You know, earth shattering stat to think about, And they said that this was in part because of the pandemic and all the covert relief aid. So the White House is inheriting this fiscal situation that that's rough in some fiscal hawks do commend the administration for at least attempting to pay for its new initiatives, But they're worried that they are still kind of ignoring the current reality. I spoke to Maya McGinnis before the budget was officially released. She's the president Of the committee for a responsible federal budget. They want to shift around their budget. That's great, but you have to do that within the context of not having a debt that's growing faster than your economy to unprecedented levels. This is the White House proposal. Of course, Congress is in charge of spending. So what's the outlook? Yes. I mean, this is essentially just a statement of where the administration's priorities are. But as you say, this all depends on what Congress can pass. And we've already seen how divided they are just around infrastructure negotiations. This budget was cheered by many progressives of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders says that it's the most significant agenda for working families in the modern history of the country. Of course, Republicans as could be expected, not big fans. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that it would drown American families in debt deficits and inflation. That's NPR. White House correspondent. Asthma, Holly. Thank you. You're welcome. This week, President Biden directed his intelligence agencies to take another look at whether the Corona virus escaped from a lab in China. As NPR's Geoff Brumfield reports, many in the scientific community still think the virus probably came from nature, but they do welcome the investigation. Biden announced he was ordering a 90 Day review of the intelligence around the origins of the Corona virus, including whether was the result of a laboratory accident. For many, the announcement felt like a big change, putting what had been a conspiracy theory about the viruses origins back on the table. But Robert Garry, a microbiologist at Tulane University who is analyzed the genome of the Coronavirus says despite this week's announcement, he still thinks there's a good chance It came from the wild. Nothing's really, you know, took me here, maybe flip flop or anything like that about it. I mean, I'm I'm working, Vincent, everybody, You know this is a natural virus. Ebola HIV influenza all come from nature for this new coronavirus. Most of the first reported cases were in wet markets and the Chinese city of Wuhan. Wet markets played a major role in the case of the original SARS virus, which begins spreading in the early two thousands. Back Then the virus was traced quickly. People got lucky they were able to identify, you know restaurants that the first cases a dad and then go back to the come on by farms where you know they had bought the Civics. As it turns out, those Sivits have been infected by bats carrying the virus. The fact that nobody's pinpointed the source for this new coronavirus isn't particularly unusual, he says. It could take years to figure out but he thinks it's out there. It's just a matter of time. I think before we find you know the progenitor in a bat or some other species in Lipkin is another researcher who's taking a hard look at the genetics of this virus. Live concert Columbia University. He says that there's no evidence for human manipulation. In fact, the way this virus infects people is so quirky. He thinks they couldn't have been made in a lab. We would not have known how to design this fires, even if he'd wanted to do so. When when I say we I really do mean the scientific community whether we're talking about Scientists and the U. S Europe or in China, for that matter, But, he adds, it's still possible that a scientist in China could have collected That it was grown inside of a cell line that somebody became infected and left the laboratory. Inadvertently carried the virus with him the laboratory in question the Wuhan instituted. Ferrall Aji has collected viruses in the field, and they published some of the genetic sequences. So far, none have matched Sarge. Cov too. Lena Chan is a geneticist, ID M I T. She says there's not enough evidence to know where the virus came from Both scenarios, the stew on the table she's been pushing for more thorough consideration of the lab accident theory. Former president. Trump frequently raised the possibility of a lab leak and chances that made a tough for scientists to impartially discuss the idea. She hopes Biden's announcement will change the tone of the conversation. I think it opens the door for other scientists to do wait and without being called conspiracy, jurist. I mean, we're members of the scientific community, calling you a conspiracy theorist for for saying this. Yeah, Lots of them. E was competitive Insurrection this and she went on. In the end. All three. Scientists agree that the available evidence is not conclusive and all welcome The intelligence community's investigation, Chan says. The question of where this virus came from needs to be answered all lives. Depends on finding out how this virus got started so that we can prevent another one from getting started in 5 10 years from now. Geoff Brumfield. NPR NEWS Washington.

"In a cleaner future for our country. That's bill for chairman of the company. The F 1 50 truck has been the best selling vehicle in the country for the past 40 years. With sales worth $42 billion per year. That's more revenue than McDonald's Visa or Nike. And this truck helps the company cruise into the massive evey market. And this new Evey is already sending shock waves through the entire auto industry. Even Tesla's Elon musk tweeted congrats to Ford for embracing an electric future. Tesla's Chevy GM and many smaller brands all have electric trucks in the works will watch that and see how that all works out. Another science news This week. Wildfires are becoming more intense California so a record breaking wildfire season burning four million acres across the state last year. Scientists say there's an increase in another type of wildfire, something called zombie wildfires, forest fires that ignite in the summer. And pop back up during the spring. They're study was published in the journal Nature. Roxanne Camp, See is here to fill us in on that story and other science headlines from the week. She's a science journalist based out of Montreal. Come, Beck. Welcome back, Roxanne. Thank you, Ira. It's great to be here. So in in the nature study, the scientists were tracking their fight These fires And what did they find? So they did is they looked at satellite imagery from 2002 to 2018. And you know, there's a lot of variability and how much the zombie fires accounted for fires in the North. But what they did find is that in one year it was almost 40% of the burned area. So that was in 2000 and eight, eh? So the zombie fires really do have an influence. They found that with hot summers, there's basically more of these things happening. And, interestingly, a Zafira burns through vegetation. It's giving off carbon dioxide. But then, when the Pete is smoldering after that, Is producing methane. So these Sambi fires are kind of a double whammy when it comes to greenhouse gasses, and I think that that's something that researchers want to highlight and say, You know, these things matter. Not only is climate change or global warming, making the zombie fires over winter more often, but they're also producing a lot of the carbon and methane. That enters our atmosphere. Yeah, and they last. I mean, why they called zombies. They start They stop outcome. They're lasting. Yes, so they just don't go away. And interestingly, there's other fires that have been lasting for decades. So there's a fire that has been going for 59 years in southwest China, and it began when an oil exploration team drilled a natural gas Well, but they left it unexplored. And this thing has been going on for decades. So I mean, the fact that it shocked me. First of all that we have zombies. Gas is Where are the zombies? I should ask. So the zombie fires that these scientists looked at were in Canada and in Alaska, so actually not that far from where I am I'm in Montreal. And what they found was that these these overwintering fires were really associated with hot summers. And like burning deep in the organic soils, they become more frequent in recent decades. That's partly to do with our warming climate. Let's move on to another story. India is still experiencing a massive surge in covert 19 cases. And now there is a Black fungus hitting some Indian covert patients. What is this? Yeah, This is so terrible. I mean, India's already coping with a really tragic and horrible burden with covert 19. And what happened was this week. The country's health authorities kind of sounded the alarm about something that's been increasingly of concern and it's a black fungus that is called Nucor. Maiko. Sis has a mortality rate of around 50%. And it's affecting Cove in 19 patients, So it's it's quite terrible. Is it in opportunistic infection is because you have covered that you get this Well, this is something that they're there thinking this is one of the things that they're wondering is. Why are we seeing this huge uptick? How What is the link between Cove in 19 and the outgrowth of this fungus, and some of the theories include the fact that putting patients with Kobe 19 on steroids to help them get through that infection of covert 19. That might predispose people to getting the black fungus and what happens is it's oddly it strikes about 12 to 15 days after recovery from Cove. It's so something is laying the ground for this fungus to take off, the notably, I should also add that people with diabetes are also prone to these kind of opportunistic infections. Is you just as you mentioned and describe them? And that we're seeing a uptick in fungal infections around the world. So cove in 19 patients not only India, but also Italy, Austria, Belgium, They're all these different countries and the U. S. We're seeing fungus emerged like other fun guy. This is that good news. I mean, can they be treated with this fungus when it comes to this black fungus? Oftentimes the treatment is removal of like a job own, aren't I? So unfortunately, another thing that doctors are saying so we need to pay attention to the fact that fungal infections air actually. Evolving resistance to the anti fungal is that we use against him. So there was a giant cover story in Scientific American this month from Maren McKenna, and she tackles this topic about how we need to look at fungal infections. The way we look at bacterial infections where there's antibiotic resistance that's emerged. Okay, let's move on to your next story. Group of scientists detected a new coronavirus in humans that originated in dogs. And we're not talking about covert 19 or a variant, right? Right? And I hate to be the bad coronavirus news update person, But yes, so this unfortunately, you know, we're seeing a corona virus that's emerged. And dogs and you know, In some ways, it's not All that shocking because we've seen in the last 20 years or so a few examples of a corrupt a new Corona virus that's gone from animals to humans. So there was theory journal SARS about 18 years ago. That we think went from Sivits to people and then murders, which was Middle Eastern Respiratory syndrome went from camels to people. And then, of course, this this coronavirus that we're living through the stars. Kobe, too, But Duke University researchers developed a test and they wanted to see what other Corona viruses were out there, and that's how they struck.

So covert 19 patients not only India but also Italy, Austria, Belgium that all these different countries and the U. S. We're seeing fungus emerged like other fun guy. This is that good news. I mean, can they be treated with this fungus when it comes to this black fungus? Oftentimes the treatment is removal of like a job own, aren't I? So unfortunately, another thing that doctors are saying that we need to pay attention to the fact that fungal infections are actually evolving resistance to the anti fungal is that we use against him, so there was a giant cover story in Scientific American. This month from Maren McKenna, and she tackles this topic about how we need to look at fungal infections. The way we look at bacterial infections where there's antibiotic resistance that's emerged. Okay, let's move on to your next story. Group of scientists detected a new coronavirus of humans that originated in dogs. And we're not talking about covert 19 or a variant, right? Right? And I hate to be the bad coronavirus news update person, But yes, so this unfortunately, you know, we're seeing a corona virus that's emerged. In dogs, and you know, In some ways, it's not All that shocking because we've seen in the last 20 years or so a few examples of a corrupt a new Corona virus that's gone from animals to humans. So there was theory journal stars that 18 years ago. That we think went from Sivits to people and then murders, which was Middle Eastern Respiratory syndrome went from camels to people. And then, of course, this could this coronavirus that we're living through the stars. Kobe, too, But Duke University researchers developed a test and they wanted to see what other Corona viruses were out there, and that's how they struck on this. We still don't know the animal source of covert 19. So what could the source tell us about a Corona virus? So I think that this is a really interesting from that regard because there's a lot of debate about you know the origin stories of stars Kobe, too, and I think what's fascinating about this is it really broadens our understanding of the vast difference in types of animals that can pass coronavirus? To humans. And you know this happened in Malaysia. It's a different geographic location, so we can take that into account as well. Um, yeah, I think this is going to be something that we might actually see. More more and more often is now that we've got our antenna for The corona viruses around us. I think we're going to be seeing a lot more of these examples. Let's move on to your next story, which is one of the most unusual research I've ever seen. I mean, I've been doing this for a few years, and it's a study about testing. If mice and pigs can breathe through their rectum. I did I get that right? Absolutely absolutely. And it is strange. It's definitely not for the shy, but for sure, not for the shy. Yeah, So how have first had they tell us about how they discovered this or what they're doing? Or what the experiment is like. So these are Japanese researchers that did this study and one of them actually had a father who had some difficulty with his lungs. And so he started thinking, you know where in the animal kingdom are there examples of other ways we can get oxygen, and he knew that some kinds of fish, for example, are able to pop their heads up above the water and Help some air and that they don't put that air into their lungs. But it goes through their intestines and they get some oxygen that way. So he started wondering, how could I? How could I make this apply to humans? And what happened was that team in Japan started to do experiments with mice and moved on to pigs to see Can you breathe through your behind? Yeah, And so they This could actually turn into something pretty useful, right? Yeah. So what they did with the pigs is they put four of them on these ventilators that you know, we're often thinking about ventilators is helping us for you. But in the case of this science, they were actually able to suppress the breathing of the pigs. And they gave them Animas with this fluid called chlorofluorocarbon. And it's kind of highly oxygenated. And what they found is that when the pigs were on those ventilators that suppressed their breathing, their oxygen levels dropped, But then when I got these animals with this highly oxygenated Fluid there. Blood oxygen levels went up. So the idea is that this kind of approach might be useful in places where you can't get the machinery, The ventilators and the equipment. Tol help people breathe and get enough oxygen that maybe maybe maybe there's a way To perhaps deliver much needed oxygen. Through the rectum. Well, we'll have to keep track of that story. That really is an interesting and who knows where that might go. Your final story looks at a kind of fountain of youth for ants, and the source is a tapeworm. Yeah. So, um, I never. It's really fascinating to me that like ants can be infected with other things because we think they're so small. So scientists looked at these ants called Tim. No thorax.

"The company. The F 1 50 truck has been the best selling vehicle in the country for the past 40 years. With sales worth $42 billion per year. That's more revenue than McDonald's Visa or Nike. And this truck helps the company cruise into the massive evey market. And this new Evey is already sending shock waves through the entire auto industry. Even Tesla's Elon musk tweeted congrats to Ford for embracing an electric future. Tesla's Chevy GM and many smaller brands all have electric trucks in the works will watch that and see how that all works out Another science news this week, Wildfires are becoming more intense. California saw a record breaking wildfire season. Earning four million acres across the state last year. Scientists say there's an increase in another type of wildfire, something called zombie wildfires, forest fires that ignite in the summer and pop back up during the spring. The study was published in the journal Nature. Roxanne Camp. See is here to fill us in on that story and other science headlines from the week she's a science journalist based out of Montreal, Quebec. Welcome back Roxanne. Thank you, Ira. It's great to be here. So in the nature study, the scientists were tracking their fight These fires and what did they find? So they did is they looked at satellite imagery. From 2002 to 2018. And you know there's a lot of variability and how much the zombie fires accounted for fires in the north. But what they did find is that in one year it was almost 40% of the burned area. So that was in 2000 and eight S o. The zombie fires really do have an influence. They found that with hot summers, there's basically more of these things happening. And, interestingly, a Zafira burns through vegetation it's giving off carbon dioxide. But then, when the Pete is smoldering after that, it's producing methane. So these song the fires are kind of a double whammy when it comes to greenhouse gasses, and I think that that's something that researchers want to highlight and say, you know, These things matter. Not only is climate change or global warming, making the zombie fires over winter more often, but they're also producing a lot of the carbon and methane. That enters our atmosphere. Yeah, and they last. I mean, why they called zombies. They start they stop. How come they're lasting? Yes, so they just don't go away. And interestingly, there's other fires that have been lasting for decades. So there's a fire that has been going for 59 years in southwest China, and it began when an oil exploration team drilled a natural gas well, But they left it unexplored. And this thing has been going on for decades. So I mean, the fact that it shocked me. First of all that we have zombie fires. It is kind of like a horror movie in a way that these things kind of keep coming back and keep producing these greenhouse gasses. Where are the zombies? I should ask. So the zombie fires that these scientists looked at were in Canada and in Alaska, so actually not that far from where I am I'm in material. And what they found was that these these overwintering fires were really associated with hot summers on like burning deep in the organic soils. They've become more frequent in recent decades. That's partly to do with our warming climate. Let's move on to another story. India is still experiencing a massive surge in covert 19 cases. And now there is a black fungus hitting some Indian covert patients. What is this? Yeah, This is so terrible. I mean, India's already coping with a really tragic and horrible burden with covert 19. And what happened was this week. The country's health authorities kind of sounded the alarm about something that's been increasingly of concern and it's a black fungus. It is called you. Cor Mike. Oh, Sis have a mortality rate of around 50%. And it's affecting Cove in 19 patients, So it's It's quite terrible. Is it an opportunistic infection is because you have covered that you get this. Well, this is something that they're there thinking this is one of the things that they're wondering is. Why are we seeing this huge uptick? How What is the link between Cove in 19 and the outgrowth of this fungus, and some of the theories include the fact that putting patients with Kobe 19 on steroids to help them get through that infection of Coca 19. That might predispose people to getting the black fungus and what happens is it's oddly it strikes about 12 to 15 days after recovery from Cove. It's so something is laying the ground for this fungus to take off. Notably, I should also add that people with diabetes are also prone to these kind of opportunistic infections as you just as you mentioned and describe them and that we're seeing a uptick in fungal infections around the world. So covert 19 patients not only India but also Italy, Austria, Belgium that all these different countries and the U. S. We're seeing fungus emerged like other fun guy. This is that good news. I mean, can can they be treated with this fungus? When it comes to this black fungus? Oftentimes the treatment is removal of like a job own, aren't I?

"How and when did the cove in 19 pandemic start this morning, The World Health Organization released its report on the origins of the pandemic. NPR obtained a copy of that report, which says the virus was likely circulating for months before a big outbreak in Wuhan, China, in late 2000 and 19, and that it did not begin in a seafood market there. The report goes on to call for further studies. Earlier this morning, I talked to Peter Dash Shack. He's an expert on how animal viruses can infect humans, and he was part of the team. That went to China to prepare this report. I asked him where the W H O thinks the virus originated. Well, what we're really saying is, we don't know exactly whether the one the one on seafood market in Wuhan was the source or not, it still could be. But it's also possible that other places within the region where the origin that the place where the virus first got into People. In fact, you know, with trace back from that market that the suppliers of food to the market, which includes wildlife from all across China, including places in rural China, where we know the nearest viruses in bats, for instance, exists and it may have started there. Okay, Let's talk about the there that you mean you're talking about farms in rural China. We are. We're using the term or have been using the term wildlife farms.

The largest of any listed company, and almost all of which goes to Saudi Arabia is government for 2020 this despite a slump in earnings and revenue, the dividend is a key source of cash for the kingdom, whose economy was hit after the virus, hammered energy markets and shut down local businesses. The world's biggest oil company has taken on more dead in the past 12 months to keep up the dividend in the face of dwindling cash flow. Susanna Palmer Bloomberg Daybreak Asia China and the United States can agree on one thing after their bilateral meetings last week. The air has been cleared and Baxter's go global news travels a nice load by it. They said it low and they maybe were able to clear it up here. Your rightful S O that was nationalized reporting today that it wants to work with the U. S on climate change, but Bloomberg's Tom Mackenzie in Beijing. Reports. Two things are very clear. Moving forward one. The Biden administration so far, at least has taken the policy prescriptions of the Trump administration has, to some extent, tighten them when it comes to things like technology, transfers, telecoms and then lead on top of that a laser focus on human rights to focus that frankly, President Trump himself had very little time for on the Chinese side. They've just clarified. Once again. They're red lines on issues like Xin, Jiang and Hong Kong and Taiwan. So that bar that Paul reference no plans for additional meetings. No change in human rights discussions will side say. Yeah, they were able to clear the air. Wh O. Researchers have said they have identified a possible first covert 19 transmission source. It is centered in China's thriving wildlife trade. The report is believed to trace parallels for the 2002 SARS outbreak. That bat born Corona virus spread by Sivits. So this what the WH O is saying Beijing embraces the food packaging theory, the Trump Administration said lab experimentation. The Biden administration hasn't come out with a hypothesis as of yet. Australia's vaccine rollout is being hampered by the torrential rain and flooding in parts of Sydney and the coast of New South Wales and the weather supposed to intensify yet further through the middle of the week.

"They just shut the door for good on outbreaks that had largely died out already. We're not doing this is this disease without This virus without a vaccine. Could just be me they would kill millions, right? I think so. It already has actually killed millions. A twist over a million around the world. I'm reading that book right now. By the way, how terrific. It is terrific. Terrific. Yeah. Um, yeah, if we didn't have a vaccine, and if if human behavior doesn't change that is Asking social distancing Congress setting issues and so on. You know the mantra we would we would have will have 500,000 deaths Probably Probably by the end of March and with without a vaccine will clearly be over a million by the end of 2021. Maybe more. I wonder. You know, when, when? When Trump, you know does what he does and cause it to China Virus And and I look, you know what What we know now, you know that. We know that it wasn't at least studying the genome that it didn't come out of the lab. It came. He was out in the world Do we? Do we know enough now to go to these other What markets and say you have to stop this because this is going to cause more pandemics. This has the potential to create. You know, even well, even more devastating consequences. Do we know enough to be able to tell people to stop this? Well, I think that's really an interesting question. I frankly felt we did after stars 1 2000 to 2003. They're the documentation was impeccable, and it clearly came from what markets and We know that these the spillover from animals to humans occurs and that's where these pandemics occur. We've had for this this Century already, so I don't think there's any question that those wet market should be closed down. But the argument against it was, this is something that's been done for. I don't know, over 1000 years, maybe another 1000. I'm not sure it's it's ingrained in the culture. And so it was tough, tough to argue with that, but also stars went away so quickly. The less than a year Um, everybody sort of breathe, uh, relief and then sort of ignored it and didn't pay attention to the issue again With this episode, we're not 100% sure it came from the wet market. There's pretty good evidence that it did, but it's only pretty good, and it's It's tantalizing but not confirmatory yet. So until we really know How it jumped from most assuredly batch to humans and whether there was a what we call an intermediate host that could have been in that wet market like Sivits were with stars. I don't know that we can say with assurance that yes, you need to close down wet markets because that's where it came from. Frankly, I think we should close him down anyway, the less contact we have with wild animals. If you were pandemics, we will have The thing that worries me right now is if in fact this story does circulate this one I just read and that a vaccine was a bail available for the entire brutal duration of this. I'm worrying about the way politicians deal with this as opposed to scientists, and that's that's the big disconnect we've had with this president and with this this disease in the United States. Way, But I do find I do feel That science will bring everybody closer together, for example, you know, Right now we know the story that Fizer offered up to, um 100 million more. Vaccines and the the Trump Administration turned them down. At least that's the early reporting on it. I wonder if the greater demand for this and the stories that we start to hear the positive stories will make more people interested in as opposed to if we had plenty of it, and people had time to, like, kind of, say, Well, you know, I'm thinking it over and I may or may not day I'm gonna see how everybody else does and see if it just goes away on its own. I wonder, sometimes that demand that economic demand actually pushes people to get it done. But I also worry, though, about you know the politics of this and how it will be used against each other over the next two years. The with the left and the right. Do you feel like that? Science has made some gains here that that will stand and not slip away? I really do Chip. I think it's hard for us right now, to really conceive of what's been accomplished in really 11 months time. We're just entering our 12 months. This virus and the enormous games that we've made with therapeutics with especially with vaccines and with diagnostics in the in the spillover to other areas of medicine is going to be profound going forward, I think We've accelerated our knowledge about health and science a good decade. With this pandemic. That's the silver lining to the pandemic in many ways and it, Zay said. It's not just going to be an infectious disease. I also pray that our politicians have learned a very important lesson. And that is We can't to do what we've done for the last 30 years, and that is profoundly under fund public health. We can no longer afford They have a completely fractured healthcare system. We? I hope recognize how devastating it is to all of us not to have an adequate safety net for population these air just three critical public policy issues. That I pray that Everybody has learned. And if if we have learned it, we can combine those things with the advancement the incredible advancement of science in one year to really look forward to some much better years and decades in the future. Well, I couldn't agree more. That guy. I really do. Appreciate your time, Andre like you. I'm optimistic in what the vaccine will do, and I'm hoping that people Will keep their eye on the ball over the next three or four months and avoid some of these monstrous numbers that could be put up there. It's just, you know, obviously devastating. It really is. I just read a paper today. It's coming out in a couple of days and health Paul General called Health Policy. You know, it's important that Americans remember that. Vaccines not going to change them. The number of people they're they're dying between now in March, same number of people just about her going to die with her without a vaccine. The vaccine is going to start to kick in. Really in terms of profoundly helping people in March, April May, June, We're going to start seeing the solitary effects of it. So don't think about the vaccine. Don't think now that we have a vaccine, you could just go out and No, we're not socially distance and not getting congregates headings.

Just shy of the record set last April, President Trump threatening a veto over a measure that gives the big social media companies liability immunity. He wrote this on Twitter section 2 30, which is a liability shielding gift from the U. S too. Big tech. The only companies in America that have it. Corporate welfare is a serious threat to our national security and election integrity. Our country can never be safe and secure if we allow it to stand. Therefore, if the very dangerous and unfair section 2 30 is not completely terminated as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, India Will be forced to unequivocally veto the bill when sent to the very beautiful Resolute desk boxes.

"Steve on my top 1071 everything entertainment. Donna Valentine and Steve Patterson. Producer. Hey, Steve Going Good. Good. Thank you. Great. All right, let's do this. Studies have shown that studies have shown that the microbes over long term studies have shown they've studied. The study's scientific studies have shown And here with their findings are study buddies president couple, Donna and Steve. I gotta study for you. We will get into the list of What are dog names and what are human names and you might find out that as a human. You have a dog named or that your dog has a human name. That in a moment, but first this for people in your life who are really stressed out so like Donna I'm just stressed out. You are a lady of leisure leisure. You know one of the keys, they say toe, actually, just keeping yourself a little chill, Maybe even keeping yourself a little happier. Is essentially just totally disengaging, not caring. Living life without consequence. Now that sounds dangerous. Here's what they say, though, according to this study out of the University of Zurich, JJ in Sivits Island. The key to being really happy is sometimes just saying screw it. Giving into your impulse to do something fun without thinking about the consequences. So, the researchers say, quote. Of course, self control is important, but research on self regulation. Should pay just this much attention to hidden ism or short term pleasure. Well, they found that you need to be ableto mentally. Put aside your responsibilities, your hang ups, even your long term goals once in a while, in order to truly relax and enjoy life. I get that I divert that. That's cool. It says people who could do this have a better sense of well being, and they're less likely to suffer from serious things like depression, anxiety. And other mental health issues. So it's not live your life recklessly. But it means if you're always with the house needs to look this way. And I need to make sure that we get this in by the end of every now and again. If you just say you know what today Nothing. Whatever none of it. All of that stuff is in the margin until until we wake up tomorrow and then we can resume. It's kind of like the cheat day that we were talking about with our diets. How there is now they're saying, Look, it's you could have a cheat day and eating a ton of calories. And one day isn't necessarily going to make you gain weight or have a negative impact on your health. If it's like, once a week that you like, alright, caution to the wind. I'm going. I'm going to go for it here. Same thing with your lifestyle. Where is the person who's Taipei and really Tightly wound and very structured could feel very dis settled of like weight, But I can't eat that or wait. I can't just lay down on the couch for the next four hours in totally space out. What they're saying you can and not only can you but it's not going to have the negative impact that you think it's gonna have. You'll probably wake up tomorrow.
