How to Get Your ETH2 Yield
"Big news. This week was a theory of two point beacon chain launching which happened on tuesday december. First as exciting. This was it presents a little bit of a conundrum for people who want to participate. How would you describe that challenge. And how does what stake proposed to solve it. I guess the difficulty of the challenge is is that Ask somebody stakes the ether. They are unable to remove it for the next and we're not Undetermined amount of time. But let's say it's eighteen to thirty six months so you don't have any access to that but you are earning rewards as you're staking and so what we what we did at dharma capital in liquid stake is basically come up with a an offering that enables people to stake through what i would just call. World-class validating service providers and then we provide loans or a swap contract that enables them to then gain equity so they can continue to use that asset. You know let's say for You know defy projects or call it. Pay pay rent anything. It just basically means that they're able to have to be able to steak and then be able to have liquidity and so walk me through how it works from. The perspective of a customer hill comes to like what stake so we have to two different types of customers. The liquid stake would be an individual and they want to stake. They may or may not have chosen. A service provider in a service provider is a team. That's created the software so that you can actually validate blocks and so they would go and go into our website. Go through an am l. kyc process after they're approved then they would Either choose this. Validating provider We've we've partnered with bison trails consensus and how figment and so they would send the ether in. We would stake through that validating service provider and we would hold those keys. I'll explain why we do that. And and we would then go in stake though the ether on to go into to the deposit contract and onto the beginning train. And as those you know. So then it's dharma liquid stake basically holding those That ether And being responsible for all the validating of the blocks and then from there they would go to a dashboard. That would say here's how much your assets are worth and they would be able to then gain alone from that time thirty five percent and basically over time as the market moves still be either be a margin call or as the asset grows in value Let's say either from price or from additional cruel of rewards and they can take out. Additional moneys if they want

The tension returns the misery returns on the way into the office on monday morning. Folks if that's not what you want you're in the right place. Eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven to call in show at your show. You're one phone. Call away from clarity. You have the answers. It's my job to pull them out of you.

I'm living the dream. Shell what's going on. I said i'm good. It's a pleasure to be speaking with you today. my question. I'll start off you know. I'm in the lamar. I'm wondering if i should sacrifice and take a lower paying salaries in which is a significant pay cut to pursue a position in a different field. The work well. I need to know more before. I answer that one. What is the field of work and then take me further not just into the field because that the it implies that you're gonna beginning entry level here which would be the reason. Hey cut but take me to the dream. Take me to the mountain. Top in that field. So what's the field and then what would be the dream job So i wanna get into human resources. I actually don't know what my dream job would be within the human resources umbrella. I'm not sure if it would be benefits payroll maybe just a generalist position or employee relations. i'm kind of in the field now but not not so much. Kind of that core I'm in talent acquisition. So we're kind of alongside day. We partner with them a lot and become the company i work for. It's a great company. But i've been kind of just stuck on that talent acquisition side. There hasn't been many opportunities for me to jump human resources or even to learn Other than kind of that surface. So i you know took it upon myself to explore other opportunities outside of the company to really see you know what is out there for human resources. How can i get started I've been in my line of work for about eight years so with that. I've got promotions. I've thought raises. And at this point. My my compensation You know a little bit higher. What's your station about. Eighty thousand right now while. Okay so i think. I i gotta tell you michelle. I think. There's a disconnect somewhere here. I don't know how someone is sharp as you who has moved up the ladder in talent acquisition. Now making eighty thousand dollars a year. Can't catch a opportunity to move. I even want to say laterally in your own company. And i'm not doubting you. I'm just saying there's a disconnect. How is it that you are succeeding and growing in company and and not and not one opportunity to move over into the hr side of things has ever developed. How is that possible. Since being with the company i i've seen you know opportunities for between only just a couple you know would pop up here in there. Maybe once a year once every six months and either we're looking for more qualified people so that means searching externally for someone that already has those credential or or kind of competitive internally. We have a big. Hr team so everyone trying to shift on over okay but you will. Have you made the right relationship connections within your company with the hr decision makers given that you're working with them in your certainly in the same building I have to a certain extent. I haven't you know bluntly tell them that you know i want to be in a pause. I'm not saying that's the. That's the single silver bullet revelation of this phone call. But that's a big one right there. The wing you said it actually is beautiful. You said it really. Well you've just haven't bluntly told him. I want to be over here. Don't you think that's a challenge. That's a problem. I guess. I am. Because i haven't said that i'm kind of afraid of their reaction or or what they would say or if they interpreted. What's the worst that could happen. Let's let's go to your. I love this exercise. This is the monster under the bed. That our kids tell us dan. I'm telling you there is a monster. There's a dragon is going to eat me as soon as you close the door.

"Efforts in Congress to pass additional coronaviruses relief, gaining a small measure of hope. We're told, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered a fresh Democratic proposal that's well.

But separately, a bipartisan group of lawmakers from the House and the Senate proposal 0 $908 billion compromise. It's all coming after a six month stalemate over pandemic
Laid Off More, Hired Less: Black Workers in the COVID-19
"Let's start with black workers. What do the employment numbers tell us. Yeah the numbers tala that while we saw some progress towards narrowing the gaps in unemployment rates between black and white workers during the last decade. We've seen a pretty significant reversal in the last few months. Since the pandemic has taken hold and that means black workers are likely to have a slower and longer economic recovery than their peers. And one thing that really stands out is this is true across education levels in fact the data that i looked at showed that a black worker have about the same job prospects as a white worker needs to have one level of education higher. So for example. A black worker. With a bachelor's degree has the same unemployment as a white worker with an associate's degree. And what does your reporting reveal as far as the reason behind this. I mean economists said that there's a number of different factors ranging from quality of schools to the propensity to end up in the criminal justice system even when controlling for a number of different things. Economists i spoke to said still an unexplained gap and they say that boils down to discrimination eric. At the beginning of the pandemic we saw women dropping out of the workforce to stay at home with their children as job. Losses became permanent. Are women getting disproportionately harmed in this. Yes so women have really narrow the unemployment rate gap a certainly not. The wage gap forgot employment rate gap with men during the past decade. That reflects that we had this growth in the service sector where women were employed. Unfortunately the pandemic has reversed a lot of that. The job losses have occurred in the service sector places like restaurants hotels even schools. And that's disproportionately hurt women on top of that as you said women have dropped out of the workforce because their children are not attending school and that can have long term effects that are concerning We know that once. You're out of the workforce especially for more than six months. It's harder to get a job and you have a permanent Impact on your earnings going forward and in the case of black women. I'm assuming it's exacerbated even further. Yeah black woman have a particular challenge because unlike other racial groups. They're often the breadwinners. Black women have the highest rate of employment among any group of women so they're often look towards to support the families and of course losing a job to the breadwinners even that much more damaging to the household looking ahead. We'll hear from the fed share and the treasury secretary. Today about stimulus programs does stimulus factor into these issues of inequality at all. Oh certainly it does. I mean you can just look at sort of a debate around whether there should be direct aid to people who are unemployed and the numbers would tell us that those are disproportionately women and people of color or you can look at do. We need to give aid to small. Businesses give aid to entire industries. And of course that's going to help business owners who tend to be disproportionately white men would help stockholders things of this nature whether the aid goes directly to the unemployed people or whether it kind of trickles down from the top and big picture. Eric what do we know about the broader economic impact of these kinds of racial and gender disparities. Yeah economist street talked to really set. It takes two forms one. Is we know communities that experience more unemployment and can experience persistently lower income tend to need more support than from the government. Things like food stamps medicaid and that costs taxpayers dollars the other factor and i think this is more important in the long run is this data. Shows us. That black workers in particular. Maybe doing a job that they're overqualified for or they might not have gotten the background and training. They need to do as well at the job. They have that hurts. Productivity and ultimately slows the pace of economic growth
Rachel Nichols On NBAs Return To Action Outside The Bubble
"We've been getting clarity about what this season is actually going to look like so it scheduled to start december. Twenty second and the finals are expected to end sometime in july. But i wanna talk to you about everything may or may not happen. I guess between those two dates because this is not going to be a bubble situation. Now what are the broad strokes of what the league is planning for this season. I think one of the most interesting things that's going to happen to the nba. Is that the situation in the country. Should hopefully all fingers crossed significantly change. Through the course of the season rachel nichols is the host of espn's nba show the jump. She's been reporting on the nba for nearly two decades. It could be. Maybe i'm being optimistic that there's enough people in this country vaccinated that the numbers of of infection or lower in deaths are low and that we have a full city to city. Travel fans in the stands. Nba finals when right now a majority i think of nba teams or at least a big chunk of them can't even have a single fan in the building. And i think that the nba is smart and taking sort of month by month approach. They're not even planning to release the full season schedule at the beginning of the season. Has it ever happened before. I don't think so in any sport like it's it's it's all a little bit up as they go along because that would imply that they didn't know what they were doing. And i think the nba has shown they really do know what they're doing as much as anyone can right now but we don't know so much about what's going to happen in this country that i they can look at the first chunk and just say okay. Here's what we're gonna do at the beginning and we'll see after that give you the basics. Though in terms of how many games we're playing year where they're going to happen. What are the fundamentals of what the first half of this. Season's gonna look like right. Well they're trying for seventy two games in quote home markets in home arenas. They've talked about trying to do the puzzle pieces of the schedule in a way. Where teams if they're you know a lotta times. Nba teams love to tell you how bad the league offices screw them on their travels. Because you know if you're portland and all of a sudden you're going to miami and then you're going to utah and then you're going to new york and then you're going to denver and then you're going back to brooklyn you're like i was just in new york. They're going to try to not have that happen. The thing that they have on their side this time is that there's really not concerts at arenas to schedule around the ideas that if you travel to a certain region of the country baseball style you can maybe play all the teams all of which is great and they've told teams when you do travel. Obviously they take their own plane they will get to a hotel but a hotel with other people in it so they've given them rules and there is this you know. Nearly one hundred fifty page rulebook. They dumped on the teams and thanksgiving weekend and one of them was. Hey when you're at the t. motel. Your guys can't use the gym and the only way they can use the gym if the hotel agrees to clear every other hotel guests out of the gym keep it closed for the entire duration of the stay. Have it cleaned between each player when they use the hotel gym. I mean there's just that's the level of Of sort of detail. They've gone into which is great but the bottom line is you're playing a sport on like football. Unlike baseball that has played indoors. Where the guys are breathing and sweating wreck on each other with no helmets or equipment in between so the league. That didn't have any player. Positive cova tests through this whole last. Six months of on-court play is going to have them this season pretty much guaranteed. So you're in the bubble.
Cyber Monday deals abound
"The clark deals crew has been working literally around the clock for a much longer period than historically. The clark deals team would work with most of the effort prior years being black friday week through cyber monday but this year not like prior years. The sales spread out the entire month of november bleeding into all the way into this. Friday is cyber monday for most retailers has become cyber week and it can be overwhelming. It's obviously overwhelming for our deals. Team can be overwhelming for you as a consumer with every E mail message. You get or text you might get from retailer you've done business with in the past or do currently screaming. How great their deals are so it really requires action not reaction on your part to plan out number one that you don't overspend and number two that you are getting real deals not non deals and so i know that if you are among the more than one third people somewhere roughly a little more than a third whom look at shopping during the month of december for christmas as more chore than joy. This is even harder for you to think through this way. But i'm more concerned about people who get really excited by deal deal and spend money. That is really more than your wallet is designed for and so that's why back to basics. I want you to think about coming up with a budget. Not too late even if you've already been clicking and buying black friday week and now in cyber week you're like oh look at this. Do you look at that one. Go ahead and assess what you've already spent and how that fits into what you really can't afford to spend through this. Christmas selling cycle second win. They're things you're interested in. Just take the time to write down the offers for example like Historically have been the top draws in the friday and now cyber week deals and they get really really confusing so no this the real deals come with. Tv's and various forms of electroncs that our current technology not state of the art. The very best doorbuster kind of deals are those that are off brands or More minor brands an example Sam's club has a hot item today where they're selling a seventy five inch. Tv four k whole bit from philips philips is not a premiere brand in the united states anymore and it's five hundred and ninety nine dollars. There was a cheaper roku. Tv seventy five inch with best. Buy for four nine thousand nine that when sold out five nine thousand nine for seventy five inch. tv really really great. But it's Yes you'd call that a second tier brand and then when you look at the first tier brands samsung. Lg sony the tv's. That are the best deals for black friday. Cyber monday in this week of cyber week our. Tv's that may be Last season's models or models that they had oversupply of or they made specifically as value additions for retailers. To sell this week and there are great. Great great deals especially when you step down to the second tier or third tier brands. Listen this when if you want a jain normal. Tv best buy has an eighty five inch imagine eighty five inch tv. A high sense. Four k nine hundred ninety nine dollars. I mean that's ridiculous and they have an l g eighty six inch for fourteen forty nine so there are a variety of really really great deals on. Tv's and for people looking at more reasonable sizes like looking from thirty two inch. Tv's that right now are seventy nine dollars and up Sixty five inch. Tv's cheap is two hundred fifty dollars and there are great. Great deals available and avoid with electronic spying state-of-the-art because today's state of the art is much more money than current technology and we'll be current six months from now or whatever at a fraction of the price that state of the art is right now

My dad passed away when i was a teenager so I think that kind of cemented the hero worship for for my dad. You know in those days. And i just you know as always we we moved from you know we were on the air force base for a while we lived in iowa and then kansas after my dad passed away to live where my mom's parents were in a big open skies. And you're always looking up to see what was going on up there because you know. I was just kind of bored in small town. Kansas and My uncle taught me how to fly. When i was nineteen years old Down in rockport texas. What kind of airplane of piper warrior and I just you know even though it was a little stressful because he was kind of a screamer why it was it was i love going flying solo but when he was in the airplane i was just a little bit stressed out but i still have his His voice in the site you know in in my ear every time i'm not lined up for the centerline of it in even in a seven thirty seven. Now it's get get lined up with. What's wrong with you that just use a spring but it was i'm just curious You have a relative teaching to fly when you're not in the airplane. What was your relationship with him like. Yeah so i was staying in his In his house and that was it was just. It was a little stressful. But i in there were. There were times where he was like these. You really want to do this one. She just leave and things like that but when it was all said and done he was really proud. And i was proud and But i was his first and last student because nobody else wanted to deal with them. I guess but he. He came to my winging ceremony when i became a pilot And he was just proud a you know it is just the way life is. Sometimes you know it's not always good. It's not always bad. There's just getting bad mixed in but But i learned a lot. You know and i and i got the i got the license in like fifty five hours.

But i was twenty twenty in gotten in like six months before six months after they probably would let me go to the pilot program but at the time they just they were starving for back. Seniors in that may have been a blessing in disguise. Because like a year after. I got down there. They cut the bottom third out of pilot training navy wide because of the cold war drawdown and there were guys get sent home. We're getting cintas supply or know. They were surface warfare. That kinda thing and so it was. It was kind of an ugly time in the navy late eighties early nineties.
Iranian op-ed urges attack on Israeli port city over scientist killing
"Punishment for the assassination of a nuclear scientist. Ah hard line Iranian newspaper is suggesting the regime attacked the Israeli port city of Haifa and cause heavy human casualties. Iran blames Israel for Friday's ambush. Iranian state media says the scientist convoy was traveling down the road when the bomb went off and stop when they stopped. The Iranian media says at least five gunman popped up and opened fire on the scientists SUV. Now. Israel has long been suspected of employing exactly these kinds of assassinations in Iran, including one of another scientist. Almost exactly one decade ago, Fox is Ryan Chilcote. More than six months after they
Using global events as lures for malicious activity.
"At this point. I think i can even say it rounds up to have been doing this twenty years and we see different and new mauer campaigns every week right there's always someone doing something new tweaking something finding a new way to do it but in doing so there are certain patterns that are always habitually followed. And really when you look at it. Probably the most effective one is bad guys trying to find a way to use current events as lures and i know that sounds really open ended and people think we'll how could that possibly help me and that's kind of the reason we wrote. This blog was to not only highlight what we're seeing but to help people understand what could be used in the future right so you know if we sit back right now and take a high level look over the next six months you know. We see a lot of social issues. The play we see an election coming up. We see the typical holiday shopping season. And then after that we started seeing tax season in the us. I would expect our campaigns target each and every one of those in order and potentially a couple of overlapping right. Yeah it's interesting to me that that One of the things you highlight here is that there are the ones that sort of run on the calendar. You know the tried and true every holiday season. We're going to have stuff every tax season. We're gonna have stuff but then In addition to that you know we've got things like covid. Nineteen we've got things like black lives matter these things that are top of mind and also emotional Hot points for a lot of people absolutely and you touched right on the thing that they're trying to exploit right. They want you to hear this topic. They want you to read this topic. See it in your emotion kicks in when people are thinking with emotion. They don't necessarily have the same thought that say an email would go through right And so by putting in these emotionally charged topics. They're trying to find someone who's going. Good impulsively click on it and potentially get exploited without really thinking through like hey with. Would steve really send me a link on this black friday sale for patio cushions. Right for zebra. Steve feels strongly about patio cushions. Right yeah you know but but anything like that anything that might be coming up. They will try and the reality is one percent work. So ninety nine percent of people are gonna cds and see right through them right they're gonna see the email with misspellings they're going to see. Oh it's a word doc. I know not to open that or it's a pdf. They're looking for that one percent that will so for every single one you see. Think about the people that you know in your life that are the least technical and then think about them at their worst possible moment right. Maybe they just saw a piece of news. That was incredibly inflammatory. Maybe they just had a relative or someone they care deeply about diagnosed with covid nineteen right. All of these scenarios are going to influence the way that they click and the speed that the click. And that's really unfortunately what the bad guys prey upon. Yeah you know it's also Interesting to me. How short circuits that. The the rational thinking part of a people's brains As you say and Tricks them into acting in a way that they probably wouldn't if they were in a better state of mind right and you know. Unfortunately we see this over and over again. There are regional specific versions. You know we see a lot of stuff in asia. That's very specific days. It's even been localized and the right languages. That would make sense to the people in the regions. It's got you know social context that are specific to the region. And so you know it's it's a business now. It's not someone trying to get lucky. It's not someone saying. I'm going to really nail that one person no there. They know they're getting one percent but the thing is to send out you know two hundred thousand. Emails has a cost that approaches zero. Yeah and again. You know as to contrast that against some of the other things that we've seen and i know you know you and your team track things like some of these ransomware campaigns. We've seen that have become highly targeted or you know some of these business. Email compromise campaigns that are really specific and who thereafter We still have these sort of You know spray and pray campaigns that are running these massive numbers games
Authentic Thanks Giving
"Numbers stand. Welcome there is a sufi wise man whose off also plays the fool. His name is berlin nausea dean and in one of the stories about him. He had lost his wife's bracelet. And these frantic and panicking says god. Help me find this. I'll do anything. I'll give half of my weeks. Earnings to the poor. Do anything just helped me. And then he sees it behind the cushion and says never mind god. I've already found it. That's the beginning of my thanksgiving talk. Yes each year. The night before thanksgiving i put together some talk that in some way looks at these qualities of the heart as we awaken of a natural generosity and a sense of gratitude. And so when. I was approaching this this class. I had actually that this was thanksgiving week and i had a whole different tacos cooking up on on self honesty. Some her looked at the calendar and figured it out and my first reaction was a real resistance. Like oh no i gotta do a talk on gratitude. I processed it. And because i was in my whole mode was on honesty. I thought i'd share with you my process on it if you'll bear with me which was kind of cynicism come up in a bit of an aversion that they're so much about this contemporary thinks giving that's actually quite contrary to the heart qualities that were really celebrating so i felt this kind of anger come up in of the false pretentious that are images of history and really the the genocide the devastation towards indigenous people and how it continues on today and other non dominant parts of our population and this whole sense of receiving a harvest when the white europeans came over here and plundered the earth destroyed the systems and so on and then of course thanksgiving goes hand in hand with this idea of turkey and how few connect the dots were eating our banquet. These turkeys were hatched and lived there six months. They live for six months and then they're slaughtered in the wild turkeys live for ten years but six months and they're in this shad without light their drug to gain weight so much so that there are a lot of them have break their legs anyway. It's a horrific thing and so the whole as you get it. My mind was just going through. Oh my god thanksgiving and then all of a sudden. I said okay with that and i felt this real sorrow just sorrow about the shadow side and so then i think okay with the be with sorrow some tenderness came out and then i just started feeling. The sense of this president says tenderness polled the sorrow. Wow i'm just so grateful for this. Practice gratitude slipped up on me though so gratitude and then you know and then i thought of of y'all when i say you all those i just i love my community here i am. Cw community those that. Gather here and really this this nonlocal community that of just a web of people that care and wanna wake up feeling that gratitude. Wow what an amazing thing to be part of that. Because i feel part of it i am nurtured by it. I know a role that boy i. It's very much Just a wonderful rich exchange. And so i was just feeling that gratitude and i thought wow i wonder if i could share this with you and then for my first thought was so this can be down or if i start sharing all my stuff on thanksgiving. I realized that we all want to be more real and that that's part of the gratitude comes up because we're feeling more real and who we are. So i wanna thank you for just being with be and being with each other and together in this path of waking up and so i felt full of gratitude and i went okay. I'm really on for putting together a talk. And i went back to my desk and the first thing they showed up in my files that i thought to myself. Wow this is this resonates. I want to share it with you. This is mary. Oliver and this poem is called in praise of craziness of a certain kind uncalled evenings. My grandmother with ownership of half her mind the other half having flown back to bohemia spread newspapers over the porch floor so she said the garden answer could crawl underneath as under a blanket and keep warm. And what shall i wish for for myself but being so struck by the lightning of years to be like her with what is left that loving

Whatsapp new features are awesome, Windows completes 35 Years
"Is something that is every day. Hello everybody my name is of needs. I'm your host for the show. Dirt tax view vision initiative to hear views on all the topics around tech v focused on the left cautions as well as ideas knowledge inquiries and ll bean hall unfiltered around deck so today in the third episode we are going to discuss about the windows. Completing twenty five years followed by the views on brought many new features india banding for three more apps basically around china and also few of the things that were left from the last episode saw in the last episode. We discussed the apple amazon. Chipset max and it's bracing and stuff. So now i think it is time that we start evaluating that. What we did was right or not to start. The things of the reviews. Were not out yet. And most of the apps that required to be updated so now i think is not the right time that yes and now i think it is the right time to make a comment about chipset and the max that it. So if you're a mac to the es ast and want to switch to the chipset's you can go ahead. I can't stop you. But what i'm gonna tell you. Is that as of now. Don do back if you're more than productivity field. You want doing be doing that as of now. So most of the apps that we have on the windows machines are based on the intel versions of the mac west but x eighty six compatible and the runs on different platforms that's air so for the apps get migrated to the it. It is the position of the developers of those apps. Not happen so it will take not a long. I would say around grew two three months more. At least it might take six months for media apps that being used like all be creative cloud the complete cloud would be upgraded with an chipsets by the end of first water offering green declined so in short it is just the first chipset from apple and it requires a huge of the back and sources and bell pink. So might've been future very soon. It would be a complete dedicated one but as of now. I won't give you an advice to go ahead if you're more into more of paid apps like the finally got through and other apps that code apple products and you believe in your security you can go ahead. I am no one to stop you guys. Because finally got runs the best on them jobs doug lord the storage options what. I don't feel good about the apple amazon. Tip search is that it has them embedded on it so being down weathered you can't upgrade your app in near future. If you want to operate you need to buy a new one. I said that in the last as well. But we know that if it's been for the extract eight gigs going from index. To sixteen weeks. You need to pay twenty thousand more in india. That's roughly around two hundred fifty dollars so by such a huge prize when you get better than this. And it's only eight gigs more so earlier. What it used to be there. Were some ready. Rams that used to work with the mac. Like the macro iraq pro. I would say and then it would work fine and everything was great but now you can't do that will have to buy an entire new laptop. Be more in the starting. Apple's programs compatibility is not that much that someone from creative field with do that initially. But if you're from a person who just do office work might which your very soon so that was all that we had from the last episode can now for this episode lex started windows windows von has company did cady five years just threw three days back and it is very great news because as much as those old it gets back he s. You hear everything right. The first windows was some something that no one elected and now windows is the main desktop software or i would say a breeding system. That's being used. Windows has got convenience words as many depend on plugs up like the windows. Ninety eight was an okay. Xp game that was a breakthrough most of the systems. What any and got the windows. Xp foreign by it launched windows vista vista didn't become somewhat popular. It was just that it was a kind of a field and followed by that. The windows seven was a breakthrough
Becoming New Parents with Michael Bosstick and Lauryn Evarts Bosstick of The Skinny Confidential Podcast
"So in developmental research three parenting styles that are that you typically see across all cultures apart from neglect. Which obviously we're not talking about that on parenting podcast but So one is called authoritarian. And it's when you are super strict and you have really high expectations and sort of almost fear based parenting but in terms of emotional sensitivity. You're not there and so then. The other side of it is permissive. Parenting where it's like a free for all best friend. Parenting super sensitive to your child's emotional needs not a lot of boundaries not a lot of limit setting and then in this middle spot when you combine you guys is called authoritative parenting. And it's when you have sensitive warm nurturing and also very clear expectations in boundaries and that sort of combination allows kids to kind of grow in a way that they can be their emotional selves. But also they're gonna do something they're going to be able to you know sleep through the night if we're talking about babies or have a job whatever whatever the example is and so it sounds like you know usually you kind of copy a little bit about the parent the a little bit of the parenting that you experienced so did you have more permissive. Open parents or were they. It's funny because i think i married my mother and he thinks he married his father like personality personality wise. Yeah yeah. My mother was definitely more strict. More about more about Structure whereas my father was definitely more like me. Do you want to hear the more. The interesting thing is like. I do agree with that. But also i think that as i've gotten older maybe i'm more like my mother and as she's gotten older she's more like her father which is dynamic. And i think like selfishly. I talk about this on our podcast. The reason i liked the schedule. I i think we should prepaid lauren and i when we had the baby. We're both working fulltime doing their media and she's actually glad you said that because that is why i asked that question is you're you're both fulltime working here like after. We had the baby in january. And i went back to work two weeks and fortunately covert and if there is back to work when i was actually pushing getting texas but when i was in labor with covid hit straight back to work two weeks running. Intermediate and covert hypnosis. Go after kind of go back to the house. And i'm actually really happy if there isn't a silver lining spent so much time but the reason we we had a night nurse in the beginning. 'cause we were both fulltime and had we have no family in l. a. Was just us two. She helped us put the baby on a sleep schedule and find time to eat and just really taught us things. We had no clue what we're doing at all like both. We're not maybe people before and selfishly. I like the schedule. Because i know if i follow the schedule it gives me the most time with the child because if she's all over the place and sleeping when i'm working when i'm not then both of us don't get spence. I look at analogy. I know when she's when she's sleeping. Which is eating and maximize the time with her It's just kind of fell into this at the same time like last night. It was nine o'clock and she was still up in. That's not her schedule. she's supposed to be in bed at seven thirty. But i'm the type of person that's adoptable to that. She what she didn't want to go to sleep. She didn't feel good. She's teething so i brought her in my room. I turned on the salt rock lamp. I put like red light for her meditation music and i think six months ago he win like we can't do this can the and now he's sort of adopted to the fact that not everything is going to be on time all the time. There's going to be different circumstances. You have to be more valuable so it together. It's it's coming together nicely. I do think that it's like definitely a learning experience for about the west. That like you said and so we so six months. You've actually fully been covid. Parents entire january twenty six. So we we get like a month. You've got a month. I think for babies they. They were living their best life. There couldn't be anything better. You're

Well, millions of people literally, millions are turning to something called versus. A livestream on instagram and apple music that pits to music icons against each other in live performances of their songs. Marketplace's Merrill Cigar got the fun assignment today.

"We are going to do a couple of stories now about gaps in this economy gaps on the personal economy side and gaps on the business side, it has been seven weeks now since those extra unemployment benefits that tens of millions of people had been depending on went away Neil it talked about that. It's been five weeks since president trump's temporary and partial replacement took effect using human disaster relief money and it has been five and a half months since Congress passed the cares act and as to deepen neil and I were talking about we are nowhere on more government money help for this economy possibly not until after the election. So how is that working out in our personal economies? Here's marketplace's Mitchell Hartman At the end of July about twenty, five, million jobless Americans suddenly lost six hundred dollars a week in federal benefits from their weekly unemployment checks leaving the typical recipient with three twenty, five a week on average across the country President Trump's pandemic unemployment replacement scheme announced in early August was slow to get off the ground says economist Andrew Statiners at the century. Foundation. This stopgap that was the to place was tardy and insufficient, and it's already running. Out So far about twenty states have distributed the FEMA benefits most at three hundred dollars a week more states have applied for their fema money, which is capped at forty four, billion nationwide enough to cover just six weeks of benefits almost as soon as he will get the money, they won't be getting any more by statiners calculation about ten billion dollars in extra jobless benefits have been paid out so far under trump's so-called lost wages assistance program. Compared to sixty eight billion that would have gone out if the original six, hundred, a week payments at continued Johanna Mayor, a healthcare worker is trying to cope with the loss of that extra federal money. She lives in Maryland and has three elementary age kids all at home right now, she and her husband had been out of work since the pandemic hit both received unemployment she's been struggling since their federal pandemic it's ended in July I mean. It's a significant difference are vines alone is two thousand dollars a month Maryland just announced it will start paying out the extra three, hundred a week in benefits, but it hasn't cut any checks yet for mayor and her family. Now I'm trying to survive a pay our rent or bills and our food on what amounts to six, hundred, forty, five dollars a week I mean, it's not survivable here according to a poll by Ipsos three out of four. Support. ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS TO PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED DUE TO CORONA virus. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. Okay. Mitchell did gaps in personal economies. Kimberly. Adams is going to gaps in business economies brick and mortar retailers are doing everything they can to get by we've been telling you about that. and. Yet, some of those retailers aren't getting by we told you yesterday about the Clothing Chain Century Twenty one shutting down. Yes, there is the pandemic as a cause, but the company also said in its announcement in pre direct language that it's insurance company was to blame as well. Marketplace's Kimberly. Adams explains that one. Century. Twenty one really didn't mince words saying it's insurers had quote turn their backs on us at this most critical time. The company says that despite having business interruption insurance when business was interrupted due to covid nineteen claims weren't paid out in this case like many others around the country insurers saying they don't have to Loretta waters is with the insurance. Information Institute which represents the industry because it's a pandemic it was never taken into the rates when insurance company provided that kind of coverage in court fights all over the country the industry is pointing to clauses and exclusions in contracts arguing the industry isn't obligated to nor can afford to absorb the pandemic losses in the meantime business. Owners are wondering what use their insurance even is, and then you also see a lot of folks are getting renewal notices for their policies for next year and a lot of their rates are going up. Davis is a lawyer working with the small business advocacy, group mainstreet alliance in some cases to three hundred percent, and so it's understandable that small business owners are saying wait a minute if the industry didn't pay out because of these exclusions, why are they going up both insurance companies and business organizations are lobbying Congress for fix Leon Buck with the National Retail Federation says, insurers need a federal backstop using the program developed after nine eleven as a model there's another terrorism event.

Here's what we've got today. We will look back at the past six economic months. We've got a LIP SYNC battle. Seriously we do and look brexit is back in the news from American public. Media. This is market for. In Los Angeles. I'm Kai. Ryssdal it is Friday today everybody the eleventh of September good as always to have your own. Well being mindful of the much deeper significance of this date. I will note today for the economic record that we are six months today for March. The eleventh a generally accepted I think starting point for what this pandemic has done to our lives our jobs and how we do what we do. So how are we doing in this economy right now that and the week was in the next six minutes of live Radio Neil Richardson is at Edward Jones City Brady is at political. Hey, you too. So Neil and let me start with you and and the past six months in in thirty five seconds how we doing because when this thing started, we were talking depression and end of the world. Right so we we've seen the depression part I don't think we'll see the end of the will be. That's the good news. We but we definitely have seen an economic decline that's been at surreal levels. Just think two weeks of a march shutdown with enough to drive a first quarter. GDP. Down five percent on an annualized basis, and now, and then after that, in the second quarter, we saw thirty three percent annualized decline. So it's been truly remarkable in terms of the economic recovery though though the magnitude is severe and still. Severe? It's likely to be one of the shortest economic recessions on record for starting to see the momentum and quick bound said everyone talked about. But from here, it's still vulnerable and the path back to pre pandemic levels is likely to be a long one. Okay. So deep let's talk about the from here part and I point you to Capitol Hill this week and the Senate not able to pass. Its version of another relief package. Why Why question we always ask about Congress. We. We all know that the United States Congress tends to respond to fast moving urgent disasters the ones that are politically salient. The ones that create a create a the momentum they need unfortunately corona viruses becoming a slower moving urgent disaster still disastrous still awful. But it's not necessarily shocking people at the same pace that it did six months ago. That is I think. The big difference that we've become too almost accustomed to the apocalyptic world that we're living in. That's just it's just a weird sense who cares about the deficit at this moment but there are people who do and at least people who care about it from from an timeframe or from whatever form of of of of religious view they have on debt. So, there's always a chance that something could happen in the next few weeks. We don't want to write off Congress completely of course, remembered twelve years ago. There was a giant bail out of the biggest banks that asked Congress just over a month before an election, but it was right after it failed in Congress and took a giant tumble in the stock market to make to to show. Some activities something that looked real for lawmakers to respond to. We just haven't seen anything sudden and real to get people to respond and let me ask you about that slow moving part of this thing because I kind of agree with deep, it happened so fast and now it's become a long drawn out thing. The question is, can people can this economy wait until Congress gets shocked into action? There is a significant segment of the economy that can't wait. Those are the people who seen their unemployment insurance benefits expire at the end of July. Those are the people who may be facing addiction. In early twenty, twenty one if something isn't done to to stay continue to stay the evictions Those are the people who are. PART OF THE OVER A. Fourteen million Americans who've been affected by COVID job losses and you may still be employed but not getting paid. So there are several people who will be affected by a con Congress in a stalemate. What's not seemingly affected the stock market which continues to advance even if you get tripped up here and there and over a course of a couple of weeks, a socks and home prices continue to climb higher. So the impact has been a different. For different segments of the economy will do the stock market is clearly what's giving Congress the covered to not actually move right? I mean that's that's not much of a debate but let me get back to what you said a little while earlier, which is, let's keep an eye on the next few weeks. The you actually believe there's going to be relief action in this. Congress, before the election and if not how it not become a political problem. It it it. I think it's possible that we will get some some type of action just never know like all of these things come out of nowhere like we we would have expected that there would have been. More urgency a month ago or six weeks ago and that that there isn't a think as perhaps the most shocking political story of the moment that that they're not feeling it I do think some lawmakers are are aware of the risk. It had their democratic lawmakers who are screaming at Nancy Pelosi right now saying please pass something We're we're in tight races, but they're also Republican lawmakers who. Carrying on a narrative that the thing that gets out of this is grit and determination, it's not more money. It's it's it's like wrapping yourself in a flag. Maybe, not even with a mask. And and just just trying to like get just get through it and there's this idea that like that's the American spirit and that's the there. These really contrary views of what what the country needs right now that have been. And been become obviously polarizing but become ingrained in our in our minds collect way the nation. Quick. Just a rip off of that a little bit. You know Congress has been remarkable and its ability to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the last minute and what can't be denied. It's the political calculus going into whether or not to do this next round twenty Republican Senate. Seats are also up for election in November and so they have to be doing that calculus what happens to their? Their states, it's no more stimulus as passed. That's going to be part of the negotiations over the next few weeks as well. We're fifty something. There's from this election city. Brady at Politico Neil. Richardson at Edward. Jones. Thanks you too have a nice weekend. Thanks guy. All right. We'll talk to you soon on Wall Street today a little bumpy little choppy. Actually we'll.

"Any decision that was made was going to be fraught with You know anxiety either it's going to be too much. It's GonNa. Be Too little but I do think that was a respect for science and that drove a lot of the decision making. And especially understanding even the that even the science isn't perfect and in that, there is still a lot of unknowns but nonetheless, there was a respect for for the epidemiology. There was respect for what we understood in terms of public health and I think the leadership in our state. Not. Only did they make decisions around this but they also emphasized the importance for public health so that the individuals and the state, the residents of the Commonwealth, I, think also listened to the the Scientific Council and I do think that relative to other states we have done a much better job I think moving forward it's going to be interesting to see what happens and I think the challenge is going to be balancing. The public health will also trying to create a path forward knowing that this may be some time. All right.

"Dr Garrone great can be back. And also with us as Dr Sandra Nelson. An infectious disease physician at. Mass General Hospital and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School Dr Nelson Welcome back to you. Thanks so much. So, I just in reading those numbers again it's a lot. So let me just start by asking both of you six months into the state of emergency. How were you and how do you think we're doing doctor tyrone maybe you can start. How am I? It's tiring and you know we're all tired everyone's tired everyone has pandemic fatigue we in infectious disease and hospital beyond you and working. So so many hours and and we really are so sad about all the lives that we lost. But at the same time you here in Massachusetts, we do to remember that we're lucky and that there's there's certainly a lot of hope given our low numbers. May I ask you have you lost anyone close to you? Know one very close to me. I'm glad for you about that Dr Nelson how about you? How are you doing? you know I share some of those thoughts. It really is staggering. When you think about six months is is is an incredibly long time in in the life of this epidemic but it's a short time in our own lives and yet it feels like it's just been We've been living in this this covert world now for for such a long time. I you know, I, think one of the things that's so interesting is that that my day job is so much different than it used to be is still see patients still do many of the things that we used to do, but it's just got such a different feel to it. There is both I think a sense of purpose and a sense of of drive to to do all that we can to help the people who are affected by this and to help our communities as they struggle to cope. You. Know I I feel like. I regularly chrome across people who have different stories of when they realized. How heavy this was how long it was going to be with us how real it was I think for me it was covenant covering governor. Bakers Presser the day that he said masks we're going to be the new normal. When did each of you understand the depth and the breadth of what we were confronting? I mean I think that When I started to see that we were inevitably headed into a search You know maybe that was mid-march maybe that was around the time the kids were released from school that I it occurred to me that this really was the new normal..

Patrick's Japan is a political cartoonist space in Switzerland thanks a lot. Patrick. UNCURABLE. Yesterday recess the Geena was arrested. He's known for saving hundreds of lives during the Rwandan genocide and for his story being told in the Film Hotel Rwanda Rwanda authorities have charged recess beginning with terrorism arson and murder but critics say the arrest is politically motivated. We're joined now by cloud gotTa Bouquet Claude lived through the genocide and today is an activist with the African great. Lakes Action Network Claude first of all, tell us about Paul says the by Geena for those who don't know who he is, what this story and how has he seen in Rwanda today? He's story is that all in up stander during the genocide he used the hotel that he managed to shelter over a thousand people which was really difficult during that time is of genocide and I have to move houses, multiple times and had to be in hiding. It was not an easy task to hide people. So it was a wonderful thing they during the genocide but now as a critic of the government of Rwanda, he's been painted with the same broad rush that the paint every critic with every person that comes out of the critics is branded as a genocide deny your even somebody like. That helped people during the genocide they are branded as terrorists and enemies of the country. So criticizing the President Kagami is equated with being an enemy of the state POLKA. Gami has been president of Rwanda for quite some time has Paul recess a begin I've been critical of him for a he has for at least the last fifteen years. He's been one of the leading critics of Polka gone me especially when it comes to atrocities in the Congo where. Six, million people have died as a result of one day in Uganda's invasion into the country and all kinds of human rights. Abuses publicist to begin has spoken on that. He's spoken against the dictatorship in Rhonda. He's spoken against this staged elections. He's basically been a very open and wanted the loudest critics of the government over wonder. Was Paul Richness, the beginning arrested in Rwanda or outside of Rwanda he was arrested outside of Wanda he was on a flight to Dubai and somewhere along the riot. Stopped in coughed and taken away to Rwanda but that was not his destination not on his Tinari. What are the charges that they're wanding authorities are leveling at Paul Roos Uva Geena are they saying that he's currently a terrorist and involved in arson and murder or are they saying that he was actually somebody who is involved back in the genocide during the genocide? No the accusation is was happening today they're accusing him of financing an armed group that's fighting against Rwandan government. Of course, he is a member of a coalition of which this group is a part of in when you look back at Rwanda's history, all gummy came to power in a similar manner where he was a part of an armed group that came into gopher, the country, the RPF, they Rwandan Patriotic Front, which is in power today. However wanders reacted to Paul was just the beginning of the rest. There is a lot of outrage of course what those who support the government they are celebrating but you know the place where you really see Rwandans expressing themselves freely on social media in you can tell there's a lot of outrage on this arrest because to lots of Rwandans the government itself is criminal. So, what happens now? I believe two things are gonNA. Happen One. The government's GONNA run smear campaign against him as they do with all critics. They are going to run a trial which a lot of the politically motivated trials in Wanda are neither free nor fair. We're basically judged by the president gummy however I think the international community is going to play a big role in it. What we've seen in the past is for this political cases win the international community has stood up and really shown injustice but the government over Wanda there one of government has eventually released some of the critics that it has arrested and tried and held. Club got the Buca is an activist with the African Great Lakes Action. Network. Thanks a lot. Thank you. If you spent any time in the last several months daydreaming about traveling to a distant land for fun. You've probably also spent some time cringing at the risks and hassle involved three members of our newsroom have just cleared those Kovic travel hurdles and are here to dish about it Lydia leader or H-have Lancia and Reo Saran all recently flew from the United States to relocate for reporting assignments Lydia's in Athens Arielle is in Tel Aviv and horray is in city. Now Lydia start us off how is planning your international travel different than it might have been pre cove it. Hey, Carol. So for me, one of the things I had to think about was because there are no direct flights. From Boston to Greece was where my layover was going to be because there are restrictions right now and what flights can come in to Greece from different countries. The other thing that was a little different than usual was forty eight hours before travelling I had to fill out these forms that are now required by the Greek government for every traveler regardless of where they're coming from. So I had to give them some biographical information and some you know information about where it was coming from where he would be staying once I entered the country and using that information they generated a unique qr code for me that they eventually scanned once they got into the country are how about you? Hey Carol so I actually had my ticket months in advance, and then when this whole Cova crisis came and I saw that flights were stopping I was getting a little worried and I saw that my airline was canceling flights. And surprise surprise ten days before it was cancelled am. Airline did end booking a flight on another line, which was united. Or Hey. You're headed to Mexico City what was the planning for that? Hey, everybody actually I think it was a lot easier than lydian aerial because the Mexican and the US government's. placed. Any restrictions on flights between the two countries? So it's just a matter of looking the flight and making sure I had a really good mask. It was difficult for me because I have a pet who I have a dog, her name is Shula which in Spanish that means pork chop and she. She couldn't travel in a Kennel as luggage because of the I couldn't find a single airline that is doing that right now between the two countries. So I spoke with a counsellor in Massachusetts and she gave me a letter certifying a out during the pandemic has become a emotional support animal for me and I sent that along with a veterinarian records to American Airlines, which is airline that. I took a of time. So your travels booked and in Jorges case, you have your dog registered then each of you gets to the airport and and what happened there. Let's start with you Ario. So I was actually pretty impressed arriving at Logan Airport in Boston. There's a lot of social distancing and people were wearing masks and you know benches had banners on them trying to limit seating. I was actually really impressed and then I got onto my flight to Newark and the flight itself was packed shoulder to shoulder now one MTC. So it was surprising that in the airport, there was so strict distancing measures, but on the flight itself while the guidelines and precautions were pretty much thrown out the window. What about you Lydia? What happened at the airport? Yeah. Arielle actually had some of the same experiences and thoughts that you did my first flight to Frankfurt was unlike yours pretty much empty. I, mean everyone kind of had their own road to themselves, and there were announcements about covert related measures that we kept hearing on the flight..

"R.. Which works with coffee to conduct spectrum of measurements of ocean ecosystems in California current. Four Times per year. The count coffee tea heads to see to carry out pivotal shipboard, biological and ecological measurements and sampling cow coffee, having going out to the seventy two years, and this spring, the crew, preparing for the second voyage of the year, but once again lockdown struck. In April of twenty twenty for the first time in forty seven years, we were not able to go out to sample the ocean. And this has created many challenges for us. I have to say I understand the the basis for decision-making to stand down the research fleet in the United States. This is a matter of human health and safety, and it was a necessary action to take, but it does have repercussions for us. Spring is the start of the coastal upwelling season a time when the flora and fauna of the Asian kick into action plankton blooms, the growth and survival of fish, and the influences of carbon dioxide on the system are just some of the measurements. That will be missed this season so the. Ability to. Integrate the measurements we make into models is going to be. restricted. As a consequence of of this particular springtime time period. Their end forever in a day when we plot. The the time series measurements that are such important records of changes in plankton populations, changes in fish, larval populations changes in DNA. Measured by diversity in the upper motion, the those parts will have a hole in spring of twenty twenty. Now life will go on. Science will go on, but we've missed an opportunity to understand the natural variability in the system. And also how this human induced anthropology might perturbed that natural durability. Come the festive July, twenty, twenty, two academic research fleet is allowed to set sail again for obvious reasons social distancing on board, the ship will present some challenges so extra pre-boarding precautions have been put in place for those wanting to go out to the first of all. They're going to need to shelter in place in quarantine for a minimum of fourteen days in advance of research cruise at scripts. We've imposed a system of three successive covid tests. Tests by PCR, that must be taken at intervals across that fourteen day time period, people will be isolated in hotels for the last six days prior to cruise. If they pass the final PR test for COVID. They will then be escorted directly to a research vessel, and they will need to remain on that vessel until the end of the route research interval, it will be a culture change. It will also require a lot of human behavioral changes. But. I? If you're sufficiently motivated to answer the scientific questions then you're willing to to deal with these additional obstacles, and we're hoping that we can get back to the the scientific work that motivates us all. The scientific enterprise has undergone dramatic change over the last three months, but hand-in-hand with a crisis comes. Adaptation and scientists are well trained to cope with this. Scientists is of course filled with at certain moments, immense satisfaction and insights, but along the way toward those insights there are often frustrations. We all have experiments that fail instruments that don't perform the way they were supposed to challenging weather circumstances that make it difficult to complete a sampling powder in a field study, and in this particular spring of twenty. Twenty we encountered this nearly unprecedented inability to get out into the ocean environment. It's highly frustrating from a professional perspective. But oftentimes in science we land face down on the floor. We have to pick ourselves up and do the best. We can moving forward.

"And if you can spare a couple minutes just to fill in those questions, it's only like three or four of them. That will really help us out in the future. This is not the last one we're going to do one more right. We're going to do to more. The tenth of July will be the last episode of Crow NEPAD in its current situation, and then we'll move into the nature August, and that's also not to say that there's no reason this couldn't come back. Back Right, so we do this because it's not true the time trying to make sure we can bring the best that we can to. You guys to the listeners at home, but right now this feels like the sensible move and we'll have to see how this goes. Because I think it says in the intro to every one of these episodes. We just don't really know how this pandemic is going to turn out still. I think there's something that amy said nothing ever according. It's safe to say we're in a different sort of chapter now and I do feel like you know in the beginning I. Really had no idea what was going to happen but I. Think now I have. Have a little bit more of an idea. Because before we had no past precedent to look to, and now we do, which is sort of interesting now. He can kind of see the trajectories of various countries in using the past. Maybe there's a little bit more guessing that we can do absolutely when the stops being the last epidemic and starts becoming the last three months. We've kind of got current past as it were that we can start to refer to. Yeah, there's a number of Nice websites out there from different outlets that kind of show graphs of different countries in their trajectories, so for example and I can put these links in the show notes but Financial Times has any. Any kind of series of graphs from different countries and one way that they look at it is they measure what are the excess develops time compared to previous years and you can see there. You know in some places like Norway Iceland in Israel. They don't really have a huge number of sex. So that says to me. They managed to really contain their outbreaks pretty swiftly. Other places have a very sharp mountain like the UK. Italy Spain huge climbs. Their deaths are fifty percent over usual fifty thousand more deaths than usual around there, and then you get the US, which is different than anywhere else where like in Europe? We have a very quickly escalating mountain, but we've got more of. Of like a mountain, range and fact right now, cases are going up in twenty seven states. So when I was saying we know a little bit more now I think if you're in a country like Italy where they're really seeing a huge decline, chances are. We'll see like what we saw in Singapore Germany. Sometimes there are big surges, but if the things that helped the outbreak to begin with are in place, then presumably, they will continue to stay in place so some of these graphs as well, and they're all kind of three sort of broad categories. The I can kind of divide the gross into as the graphs which have a kind of a tiny little bump that doesn't seem. Seem to make a huge difference like the fastest countries you talked about. And then you have this very characteristics of exponential huge spike that then also drops pretty quickly, and that's the way you know. The UK is currently sitting in a lot of European countries, and you look at the US and it sort of it is hard to sort of walkout what it represents because it is just like undulating up and down and up and down and up. It seems to be congratulated going down, but it's hard to I. Guess Really Understand what's happening in the states if you look at just sort of the whole of the United States in one graph, because what's happening in each individual state. State can be really quite drastically. Different on those graphs could look very very different issues to look at different states, which I guess makes sense because they have different governesses, and they have different public health sponsor in different places. Yeah, it's a big country, so it's GonNa look a little bit different there and that's one thing we don't see if there is a drop, it's not a rapid drop like it is elsewhere. What we see right now is that where as in March and April it was New York. That was just skyrocketing. Now we see is California Texas and Florida are kind of leading the way in rising number of cases, Arizona's distinct, and that has got such a steep. Steep increase right now they're outbreak is doubling every twelve days. Compare that to say in New York. where the outbreak seems to be doubling roughly every four hundred sixteen days just to say, it's not increasing at the same rate in eleven states it's decreasing and the other. One's is sort of hard to say so like you were saying. If you break it up, it changes depending on the state and this claim that the US has a lot of cases because of a lot of tests is just untrue. There's various measures to look at that. We've been at around five percent positive, even though the number of tests has gone way up so that part's not true some other. Things that people are pulling out of the stats, and I say people because the US CDC and health department, really leading the way as far as displaying data, but there's been a number of universities and also news that let's set of short. Pick up the slack here so you know. John Hopkins is one of various places that are tracking say racial disparities so from the. The data we have, it looks like even though black people are thirteen percent of the US. Population they account for twenty three percent of the deaths, so that disparity is looming pretty large and the other thing we might want to talk about is us has remained around twelve percent of all global deaths for quite a while, but Latin America is coming up pretty heavily. They've. They've been coming out for the last few weeks or so. At this point, they account for more than half of the new deaths in the world. So that's really disconcerting. Another eight percent of the world's population, the biggest surge there is in Brazil and Mexico is right behind that those both had leader is that we're really downplaying the seriousness of this pandemic and that's playing. Playing out now, but also in countries, where I've talked about how they put in really early, strict measures, Karoo they're still doing pretty poorly right now, and it's going up. It's pretty disconcerting. Those the ones that we stood out to me. Amy Is the ones that say did put efforts in place very very quickly..

"So like we were saying these pods on the same length. Elimination would be the shortest option. Tony says might still be available but not for long and the next shortest would be flattening. The curve that's allowing the virus to spread to a point that is a user at capacity in this number of assumptions here. But these are hit. Immunity is achieved sixty percent. We double out. Icu pissed so the record about four thousand base to deal with covert. The average tawny admits IC- issue if you get covered as teen days and we also control the epidemic levers and keep just said. Icu pistol it would take featuring extreme calculations to see it all pass by February. Yeah which is a lot longer than the six month idea. That's being discussed publicly at the moment. Not at six months has ever been a promise but a lot of the policy response especially the economic kind seems to be geared towards that timeframe whereas February is more like ten or eleven months on upside tiny reckons. If Australia does a good job of isolating the vulnerable the elderly and people with commodities and some antiviral treatments become available. We could cut that time in half right. And then there's the Middle Pa the one that we're on right now and even longer than eleven months because he thinks if we keep squashing the curve way below. Icu capacity not low enough to wipe it out altogether. We'll probably end up with a vaccine before we rate showed immunity. Which means we'd say living like this for somewhere in the vicinity of a year to maybe even a year and a half because there's not enough social context to allow the boss to speed enough to get the infection right up to get the kite is passing through an achieve here community. Now that's just about hero seat. Settimana public health medicine speechless saying that. If we want to get hit immunity we're going to let more people cannot victim and doing some version of this until winter. 2021 isn't a pretty thought but neither is tens of thousands of voidable deaths. We WANT TO ACHIEVE IMMUNITY BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Too much social physical distancing environment which is why as a society. We need to work out. What our goal is here are. We hid immunity and completely relax because try and why and have reduced epidemic all social costume social disruption and economic cost. All those things for much longer until we have a vaccine okay so say Australia does want to achieve herd immunity foster. What are they doing that so if Australia? The signs that we want immunity and we want to try to before Christmas assault. Not Too long we would now just ease off a little bit sale out. People can take to work but more just get infection right up everything along and then we would get took point where it was starting to grow quickly would probably have to go into the liberal physical team. We hit now or preps even more lockdown and then holder that now. That's what I can say. I know played with the mathematics to make myself a sexy tricky. So you need to have a margin of era near you put in the controls all north. You go to to move. And it's quite a frightening thing for the chief medical officer to the thinking about pulling all but if we wanted to go to him you see that we would do. And some countries Sweden's by Sweden is relatively relaxed about the team. Except SEAN so this quarter around the world and how countries are purchasing. Okay so kind of a stop stop. Stop model yeah or to torture. Everyone's favourite metaphor this week about hibernation. We would wake the Baragan just for a little while and then send it back to sleep are not necessarily advocating that astray should take us. Pa But it isn't option. I think a lot of people think that what we're doing now. We'll get us through to feud immunity pointing out. That will now smell social distancing if we keep it on will not cheat hit immunity and we're looking at a really really long hole in the state until there's a vaccine we do have another option needs to be discussed about advocating. We take that route. It's not my job to decide that citizenry astrid that deserves the chance to have explained to them and be able to flick back to the politicians as to. What the preferences do you think? It's possible that the government's already chosen the model which we sort of redundant shave her immunity and we wait it out until there's a vaccine but they've maybe done a bit of a calculation that people will freak out if you say to them by the way you're going to be indoors for another eleven months. I couldn't possibly comment. Go on I suspect. That's what's happened to and I'm not going to criticize the too much into this really but I do wonder. Alexei speaks to wonder this being a hit in the UK the UK was initially on a trajectory towards immunity. And then basically the Imperial College study came out and shuts rights and society. Just to wear not going there. But they didn't consider what options where and so you look down by political will increase physical distancing. That happens and then. You're sitting here Australia about three weeks. Away behind chief medical officer. And you're looking at all this the prime minister. And you're looking at the less neutron wick. At how do we find out about this? I suspect just? What is this if we can't demonstrate immunity route possible so we'll go this middle route and we'll public know that this means it's not going to achieve it immunity when we get a bit of settling down here? I think we need to be transparent about. We're not going to be cheaper than going to be reading all because these serious implications.

"Okay so that middle option where you worked minimize infection but Tony. Shut everything down. Which is what you have to limit. The virus has these catch. And that's how long it's GonNa take.
