Philadelphia Eagles hire Nick Sirianni to replace Doug Pederson as head coach

"We're gonna talk about the new head coach. The eagles tired offense former offensive coordinator for the indianapolis colts. Under frank reich. Nick syrian of course This is a this is a guy who i don't think many of us of before the last couple of weeks so this is certainly certainly football. Guys know who. Nick serianni is people who are who are living breathing and and eat this stuff. No hixon's but for the casual fan. There was no reason to think he would be on anybody's shortlist. Of course eagles didn't have a shortlist. They had a long list and we're looking at seemingly every coordinator under the sun here over the last couple of weeks but just before we get into the details. What are your general impressions of nick. Serianni your i feel like It's gonna be hard to judge him early on because first off. He doesn't have head coaching experience. So he's going to be learning on the job and second he's coming into a situation where The idea of molding a quarterback is going to be tough. because he's gotta figure out who's his quarterback and Is this a question of are. Are you fixing the guy that looked like the cornerstone franchise quarterback. Are you putting out fires inside a locker room because of Are we are. We going to have factions inside that locker room that wanna see carson wentz or jalen hurts or there's so many unknowns on who's going to be the starter in september that this guy has to figure out but at the same time he has to figure out his way through the entire locker room so the stuff i've heard from guys that i trust in the nfl Guys that i i. I've been texting over the last You know six months but also especially during the last week in the coaching search. The coaches that they interviewed. Just show me that The person that they thought they were gonna have wasn't the guy more Things have changed on the quarterback situation. And you know when you when you see the connection that frank right has and the influence that he has with nick siri auntie and conversation with carson wentz. You start to connect the dots. Oh they'll this would naturally make sense but at the same time. I don't think he was on many people's radars and I feel i feel like you know. I have some optimism. But i come back to one thing and and i haven't been this way john while when it comes to the eagles and it's really depressing and i wanted to depress our audience and it doesn't matter who you have as a coach if the coach doesn't have any sense of power of putting together a staff if the coach doesn't have Any any say or strong influence on how to build the roster that is what kind of free-agent as well as we're kind of draft picks and that was a huge issue with doug and buying when you win the super bowl away. Doug won the super bowl. I think doug deserves a little more Room when it came to influence. And if that hasn't changed from above doug With the gm. Then what are we talked about. We're talking about an owner. Gm that's going to have more say more control and the same thing that we've seen before and i've said this before during the entire Coaching search. Why would a head coach with experience or reputation or the The hotshot innovative Guy that's coming in like lincoln riley. Why would they come into this situation. If they don't have a sense of control of power so. I think it's very predictable that we're seeing first time head coach Because it was the same thing we saw with. Doug it's it's the same track record and if you are going to follow the same stuff. You're gonna continue. Repeat the same mistakes over and over again above doug on who is making the picks right clearly clearly that has not been resolved yet or at least not publicly on understanding power. We figuring out the talent pool because what we're doing right now or what. The eagles have done right now has not worked. And when you look back at specially going back the last six seven years

Chicago mayor provides update on city’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts

"Their Lightfoot. Um, from Chicago. I see her. She's needs a new and show her video. And I think she can do that. I'm sharing. My video of my staff is saying Don't do it. Your office looks messy. Just well, here I am Sorry, and all my glory. Anyway. Thanks. Uh, first and foremost we're in is his call. I want to make three points, two of which I think man and and Jeff have covered. But I want to just underscored from the perspective of a city like Chicago. Um, way you have to think I think really. Long and hard about how the money's will flow to cities and states and I will just say asses one of the cities that got direct funding. We were grateful for that. Obviously want that to happen again. But I also lied. And I said this another context. A conversation with regional mirrors around Chicago, 300 plus Who didn't get a nickel at all. Or if they got something. They got it in September and October from the states who got their money at the same time that we did last April. That just can't be a thing going forward. So one of the things I I will add that hasn't already been said if you're going tol Send monies through states, which I do not recommend. And clearly not for a city the size of Chicago, You got to put some specific controls around dispersing that in a timely fashion to other minister Palate ease. I would put a specific time limits on it because a lot of these municipalities that are smaller in size are smaller than Dayton. Smaller than other places on bit may not be practical for you to be able to distribute money to them directly, but then makes a state. Give him the money and give it to me in a timely fashion, where we can actually help when people everybody's on a different budgeting cycle, But when they don't get money allocated from the federal government till six months or longer afterwards, that's a crisis. That's absolutely Entirely avoidable so that that's issue one on vaccines, I would say again. We welcome the partnership, which would be a huge change from what we've experienced over the course of this last year, but But you've got to talk to us because it's not one size fits all and Julie, As you just said, We're all the different stages in Cycle where all the different stages in which we built infrastructure ready to go, and I will tell you, you know, we've had this challenge with our state. We have actually good relationships with the same party. But when we hear, not directly, but Oh, there's this resource coming. It is coming into the city of Chicago, and it's going to be this is the nest. It just adds confusion. If there's not a conversation and collaboration on the front end. We don't wanna be in that situation with the new administration and the last thing I'll say, and I'm a broken record on this really seriously. You've got to stand up a bipartisan, geographically dispersed size. Just first Group of mayors. You cannot do really much of anything that you want to accomplish without us at the table, But bring us up to the table on the front end at the back end here what our experiences are get a diversity of opinions. You know you're doing that to some extent with the governor's. You got to do that with the mayor's. I just can't tell you enough. Your success depends on us. And our success depends on you. So let's link arms and do this together. Set up Mayor's Council of some sort. These calls are great, but I'm going dialogue from different parts of the country. Different demographics, different sizes, Republican Democrat independent You'll figure out how to put it together, but we've got to be at the table. So that's the last thing I'll say they're like. Could I

The Economy Aboard The International Space Station

"The international space station cost hundreds of billions of dollars to build for astronauts living on the space station. Though money is essentially useless, there's nowhere to spend it, but that does not mean there isn't an economy for the handful of astronauts living on board from our daily economics podcast, the indicator from Planet money, Stacey Vanek, Smith and Cardiff, Garcia explained. The economy aboard the international space Station is all about trade. This is, according to astronaut Doug Wheelock. Actually, everybody at NASA calls me wheels. I'm one of the old grizzled veterans. So the early career astronauts call me Papa Wheels. Doug Papa Wheels served as the commander of the International space Station and lived there orbiting the Earth for six months. That interesting thing is with food, of course. Doug says that aboard the space station most of the food is actually pretty bland. But every three months a big event would happen. Doug and his crew would get a shipment from Earth just before they closed the hatch on the launch pad they would throw like a bag of Fresh fruit like oranges, lemons, apples, vegetables as well. Everybody would only get one or two pieces of producer just wasn't that much of it. And so here is where the trade comes in. Doug knew that the Russians loved onions. But Doug loved fruit. Cuter. Your chicken was my commander. As said, Hey, theater. What trade An onion for do you have? Ah, Like an extra orange. He goes all you don't want your onion. Of course, the space station economy was not just about food, though. Services were also a big part of it Dug, for instance, has an engineering background And he says for him, one of his least favorite parts of life aboard the space station were all the scientific experiments. They had to do whatever their background this was just Part of what they did every day, the way out of it Economics. Doug discovered this a couple of weeks into his mission. When one of the scientists aboard the space station told him that there was a big problem, she said, Hey, the party's broken not what you want to hear aboard a space station, that's for sure. No, But Doug's background was an engineering, so he understands systems and he says, fixing things comes really naturally to him. And the scientists This woman named Shannon knew this about Doug Shannon looked at me, she said. If you fix the party Do all of your science for the rest of the day. I'm thinking like that is a deal and a half. I'll take that deal, so I got my bike tool belt called Houston and said, You know, Houston, we have a problem. The party is broken, but the real commodity on the space stations is Doug. Was Earth itself. For example, Doug says, you just want to see and talk to other humans. Even if you don't know them. You want to drop in on other astronauts video chats and see their families and talk to their friends. You don't care. Yeah, because in space, humans are a precious commodity. And I asked if there was ever bartering around this like, hey, you can join my video chat with my family for an apple. Indexes. Actually, everybody needs human interactions so much they don't really trade it because it becomes sacred when you get back to earth, Doug says. Your idea of what's valuable is changed forever. It's completely changed my whole perspective. Especially especially rain. I am just like fascinated by rain now I made I just The smell of it the sound of it and just to feel against your skin I took for granted before you know Stacey Vanek, Smith. Cardiff Garcia NPR news

Alphabet Sends Loon To The Deadpool

"One of the moon shots is entering the dead pool alphabet says it is shutting down loon. Its internet balloon project calling it a successful experiment but not a viable one quoting the great and legendary steven levy in wired tonight alphabet is announcing that it is grounding loon astro teller who heads x and was also the chair of the loon board recommended that alphabet no longer funded effectively letting the air out of the divisions balloon no one wanted to pick up the mantle. He says the interesting thing is how far loon got before alphabet. Pulled the plug when taylor. I heard the idea. He says he gave it about a or two percent chance of succeeding by the time of its launch in two thousand thirteen which i traveled to new zealand to attend following some of its first internet bearing balloons. It had gotten to around ten percent by the two thousand. Eighteen graduation teller. Thought it was fifty fifty but in the last six months the odds reset some grim reaper. version of the new york times needle loon had two challenges the technological leap to deliver internet by balloon and making the business case that people would pay for it while the tech side was solving problems. The commercial environment became less favourable in the last decade. Much of the underserved world became connected. Internet availability rose from seventy five percent of the world to ninety three percent. The remaining areas are primarily populated by those who can't afford the four g phones that receive loon signals or aren't convinced that the internet which in some cases has little content in their own language was worth the effort teller came to realize that luna was unlikely to ever contribute to alphabets prophets. And so the bet was lost. The fall of loon is a good occasion to take a look at x.'s. Accomplishments last year the moonshot factory celebrated its first decade in that time. It's pioneered autonomous driving. Which is now the basis of the other bet called waymo another project google brain now powers much of google's technology with deep learning and alphabet still has high hopes for x. graduates like medical bet verily and drone delivery company wing and still inside x. our projects involving robots and food but it has also populated a bone yard of costly failures. Now including loon but teller won't call it. A failure loon. He says was a successful experiment considering that he just killed a costly high profile enterprise. I asked him what an unsuccessful experiment might look like quote. Real failure is when the data tells you what you've been doing isn't the right thing and you do it. Anyway and quote loon was a success. He says because once it was clear that it would never become a viable business or solve internet connectivity. He called it quits and quote

Murphy hopes to Seymour transparency when it comes to vaccine doses with the new administration, he says ahead of Inauguration day. Some of this is still not transparent, invisible and I hope that tomorrow we get to a different a better place.

"What do we do with sales people. Aren't we like professional communicators and communication a performance and we have good days bad days. Good calls bad calls and we tend to fall into traps. Talk too much. Listen to little here things. We want to hear say things. We want to say that we're gonna talk about today. We've got an expert on this. Someone who's focused on helping sales reps and he now works in enablement and i think that is an overlooked part of the company sometimes just administration. I understand that but other times it's coaching training. Developing us helping us become better. I think you going to enjoy this conversation. And let's get right into it. Hey aaron welcome to the show way getting started gives a little background on yourself fussy. Thanks for having me on massey finals. Brian videos for very very long time. You will keep your leafy suburbs somewhere to look into fine My name's erin evans. I work for an organization called global. Data will the. Uk's fastest growing business intelligence company. My history is very much in sales. Enablement be look after the south function in For global data which is about four hundred and fifty people globally. I spent the nas thirteen years. Doing it always wants to sell in sales apron before it was cool with south ableman bs. That's that's a bit about me. Yeah it kind of had where everyone kind of unified around that term. What what was it called before then at least in your experience like missed a plate spinner basically is like a bit of every here to give it to him. He'll get it done exactly. He was like you will the cats Yeah my background. At a spice. My expertise is south. Trading south coaching probably more towards south coaching than anything else big believer in coaching. But yeah many everything from you know. Being the conduit between products marketing silos all the development or the coaching. All the training. That takes place. But when you're looking at off the four hundred fifty people between to do enough different hats and often absorb different responsibilities as well. And what interested you in that. Role versus staying in product development marketing or going directly as a route. Well it was in silence. I was in south not for too long but it was. It was really interesting station. I worked for was a huge multinational corporate. I started selling. And then i started helping people while i was selling very quickly realized that i was probably about helping people. Don i wasn't selling right. I was particularly bad at selling. I'm so very quickly. They transitioned into a raw which was a management role but then they realize that actually we can sort of scope this rolling out and get you dig more support trading coaching the rest of the organization. This value dana. So a love silos obsessively not cells. I left communication in general You know what can up so happy to wear the sows hot sometimes. But not not just the prospect of your head spring of the pillow every morning and your jaw assault job is to make some better than they were yesterday. And what what more do you want to do in life right. It's like it's such a such bonds in silence as well. It becomes even more interesting sign. And what do you think that came from was something through school or sports or growing up. Or i think of. I've always been obsessed communication since i can remember. Actually since i was a very very small chart have always been really interested in communication. How people talk the psychology of talking. I realized quite quickly that he he simplify certain things. If he can say things in a certain way you can get people to buy it and you can get people to do things differently and that fascinated me and a genuine and driven by helping people making people better as well seeking if you like the people because automating doug like you have to plaster smaller. You're facing your but particularly if you like people that that it becomes great and it gets for me like where wherever we've got a kick is working with young people because we're teaching them siles right. You don't really what you're teaching them. As communication you see every aspect of their life get better for being able to communicate better For me it's such a body such a kick out of it when you see people doing better in life. it's not just better in sales. And i'm not trying to kind of desperately scrape the nobility of what i do. I genuinely feel like you make people better human beings by making the better communicating. And what are they typically bad at as far as communication is it what they say is that they don't stop saying it or is it they they not using and understanding the other person's perspective so really really good question. She is a question are really enjoy answering. Because i think there's a multitude of different things in its light as well particularly as people progressing sales. When first starting cells you've got this obstruction of thousands. Which would you pick up the phone. Just talk people nights. It's really really far from that. Listening is the biggest one. I think the probably about fifty percent of most sales problems or sales organizations problems is both internally and externally in inability to listen correct. I think on top of that. It's taking quite complex ideas and stripping awhile the nonsense making it really easy for people to see value Get into the speed about value. Really quickly people see. Value quickly is really important but also another big thing is questioning. I think i think people really sold to people buy something from themselves if you can facilitate that process re fantastic questioning. Which in large part is listening. Then you've got the kind of burdens of a real quality. Salesperson person who saw real quality communicates notice people stay in sales. They progress as they become managers coaches. Ceo's directors unite and dot communication pc son critical. And when you meet a rap how do you go about determining where they are in their development. The first thing. I check for his credibility. If someone isn't coach -able you basically get spend the next hour banging your head against a brick wall so i'd like to ask a lot of meta cognition questions to get them thinking about thinking on getting them to explain how they think about things and very quickly you can get insight into how comfortable they are so to give some practical examples to your listeners. One of the best ways of doing this sparring listening in the interview stage as sporting country. But it's to be stage because somebody's comfortable you leftover lemon for the next six months.

Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy

"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.

Amelia bellefonds found her calling seventeen years ago while she was teaching with head. Start a program that provides early childhood education to low income children and families. She worked with all kinds of kids over the years but one in particular stood out. He was a four year old boy with frequent tantrums and very little verbal communication. Amelia and our fellow teacher wanted to help him so they began researching his behavior and discovered that he might be autistic wanting to learn more. Amelia began studying applied behavior analysis. A scientific approach that can be used to reduce challenging behavior and teach new skills and children with autism. Amelia liked aba strategies because they're easy for non-professionals to learn and can have lasting benefits for the child if they're used consistently not too long after. She started her research. She ended up switching jobs. She wanted to understand more so she decided pursue a master's degree and become a board certified behavior analyst again specializing in working with children with autism. And this is what brings us to the side hustle part of the story. Amelia started a blog called accessible. Aba dot com hoping to share insights to help parents understand more about the field and their child soon. Afterwards around christmas two thousand eighteen. Her twin sister. Diana came for a visit. Diana enjoyed writing so she offered to write some post. The goal of the blog was simply to share information with both sisters working away. They started posting one or two times a week as they built momentum. They increased to two to three times a week. After six months they were posting almost every day looking back. Amelia says she would have started posting daily to the blog right from the beginning. But it's always better to pick up the pace as you go along than lose momentum by slowing down. They started out blogging just for parents but eventually expanded to have a separate log for each of their target audiences parents teachers and professionals altogether these blogs get over forty thousand page views a month they also started offering courses on you to though now they self host courses well sisters celebrated their first sale overtaxed even now more than two years into their business they still celebrate every sale with a text some days. It feels like texting all day long in addition to online courses accessible. Aba also offers three levels of membership per nine dollars a month or ninety five dollars a year members get self paced learning and downloadable content. They can pay a bit more and get all that plus monthly videos and a monthly free product. They can pay a bit more. Still get everything. Plus thirty minute monthly one on one call. Before the pandemic hit the sisters had plans to attend a couple of live events but when everything was cancelled they decided to double their efforts on the website they also put together some of the content they already had and self published a book on amazon called. Aba fundamentals for parents. Finally they're starting to post on youtube as a way to extend their reach ameliorate. Miss that is difficult as the pandemic has been it's also been a catalyst is pushed them to work even harder. They're bringing in around fifteen hundred dollars a month however they've really just started to focus on monetization for most of two thousand twenty. They were focused solely on growing the blog and developing those courses. The pandemic hasn't been the only challenge plus opportunity. They've also had to deal with moving to a new state. Changing jobs illnesses and kits despite the business. Amelia says. they've gained a lot from the experience. There's a feeling of control over the future. they don't get working for someone else. They know that if they want to make more money they have to come up with a better product or offer improve their marketing. Reach a new audience or take some other action one of those things or perhaps all of them is exactly what they plan to do.

Building a D&D Side Project With Angular

"I wanted to highlight evan. At united started talking about a project that you've been working on specifically using angular as a side project and maybe before we jump into discussing working with side projects. I'd be curious just a little bit of a highlight of what you're working on Yeah so i have my normal job but I've always kept my skills up to date by working on little side projects. I think one of the best ways to learn anything to have something you are trying to solve in the moments that scratching niche said speak. And i'd always wanted to play dench dragon. Since i was a kid. I finally got started with my family Once my oldest daughter was old to play with us it just kind of clicked into place and we'd play sorta once a week a session. I run the games. On the game master and the notes i was taking up the lower of the collaborative story that were telling us we play in. Roll the dice. No they were just getting so out of control because you have locations that you visit in the descriptions of those and then references to things that they did than people they met and when you're in the middle of one session trying to look up who they met six months ago and then you try to get back to your session. It was just out of control so starting really simple. The core of what. I was building was a cross linked to notes. So i kind of rome research. You can click on a link within europe session notes bounce over to that non-player character or location notes and then bounced back quickly because it was just a link but you never left the page. So it's a single page applications well then from there it just kind of grew and expanded and it took me a year of sort of weekends and nights but Back in october finally launched dungeon master dot up and it's been going really well have got like seven hundred plus sign ups handful maybe like fifty active users. But that's great for one man show. So i'm i'm really pleased with it if that's not helping me as a game master as well one of the things that comes to mind. Like when i think of side projects is why create side projects. But you for me personally. That's always been the thing is are you kind of hit. A couple of things for me is one just like to keep your skills like and try something different or maybe is trying to complete new library cheers. But yeah you're you're trying something new technology and you want to apply it or really just doing something fun like it is. It's really interesting. You don't have to necessarily be perfect. It's not production code. Well in this case. I think i would consider that. You're building it for other user so it is getting to that point but i also love just the fact of like solving a problem. You solve a problem that you were having and just major life easier. And then it's like i bet others could use this and then you just throw it out there and people enjoy it. I think that to me is is really satisfying. There's been tools that i've created on the side even sometimes very buggy but they might just help me or they help others. And i. I really enjoy that.

The weirdest stuff at CES

"Joining us to talk about some of the most unusual stuff it's es this year is usa today tech columnist. Jennifer jolly a jennifer. Thanks for being here. Oh my gosh you guys. Thanks so much for having me. I love talking about weird tech. It's my favorite thing. All right so what was the weirdest thing you saw this slightly different. Cas where we all were covering it. Virtually yeah well we're just. It's it's going to be a tie between toews poop detective toilet. You heard that right and i mean please. Just start with the puns. Now i call it number two on my list healthier future based on what you leave behind get ready to be bulled over from the latest data dumb. I mean you can't you can't make this stuff up. What does it do. Tell me you you. You've you've peaked. You've peaked. My i can't think of a good pun around the top of my head so i'm going to give up. He's flushed with excitement about this. There you go there you go. Okay so todos newest ai. Smart commode is a sensor filled. Smart bowl aimed at detecting early signs of disease based on just imagine doing air quotes key outputs so it will analyze everything from how long you sit on the throne to The temperature of your skin as yours just sitting there to whether your stool contains enough fiber and then it will send you recommendations on how to improve your health via app on your smartphone showing gives you solid output. I caught up with you guys young so there we have it so that's got to be one of the weirdest last year. I talked about There was some gadget that analyzed your cats poop to let you know about your cats health so it was just a small leap to human health based on. You know looking into the future by what you leave behind. Yeah i'm gonna stop now it totally but you know it really it really make sense because you know how they've said. Some universities were analyzing waste on campus for covid spreading around so anyway so you mentioned it was a tie. So what's the other weird thing that you that at the top of your list. The bio breast milk. You guys remember last year when impossible pork basically got all the headlines plant based bacon that actually tasted really really good. Well this is again with the pun. The mother of all new high tech smart foods bio milk is a customized cultured breast milk. That is made from cells of a pregnant mother than cultivated in a lab to reproduce human milk. But it's personalized for that specific infant from that actual mother. So it's a way really. And i mean it sounds crazy but female Cell biologist female food scientists founded this company to create an alternative solution to formula to the packaged powdered formulas. We've been using forever because three out of four moms. Have some reason they have to stop breastfeeding before the recommended. Six months so it could be work. It could be health related. It's stressful any nursing. Mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs you will ever do. Toss in pandemic and working from home in teaching your kids. I mean it's really really hard in the best of times so that is just something i can't i couldn't believe it when i heard about it but i'm excited to see it. Come hopefully this year. So let's get to some of the really cool stuff that happened in the s one of the things that i've heard i'd heard about were these bionic contact lenses i think. Can you describe them. They sound really cool. Yeah it's called mojo vision. It's an a. Are embedded contact lens. That is as close to a bionic accessory as i could ever imagine. There's a teeny tiny display. It's half a millimeter in diameter. That's about the same size as a grain of sand that's actually embedded within the contact lends itself and then it projects images and information really subtly. You really take your attention away from what you're looking at but it projects that into your peripheral vision as you either. Walk down the street or cycle up a hill or even look up into the night sky. It's absolutely mind blowing at this. Was the winner of css last gadget standing. And that's an event that i have emceed for the past several years including this year i had not seen not mojo lens until video that the company played during the event and i had to pick my job up off the desk. I just cannot believe this kind of futuristic far out technology is actually here and the company told me they're going to launch this For people who are visually impaired. I and follow up with a consumer model. They have to go through all kinds of of fda and f. like all kinds of regulations because it is a contact lens. I e a medical device but they are looking at two three years out with these. Maybe less sounds like something. I am i on medically go to the goes. Terminator two were you. Were you got to see through the terminator's eyes and stuff was coming up on the side and you're like wow that if that could happen in the future yeah not only could is will. We've seen it. We also saw the music's glasses that do something very similar. But they're a pair of glasses so the difference is a contact lens and a pair of futuristic super cool smart glasses nice beyond products. Were there any trends or big takeaway. She took from the show this year. Jennifer there was a lot this year. You guys have already talked about this. A lotta pandemic tech germ killer. Everything's from target as new anti microbial backpack to special lights. I saw ub techs. Giant robot can rule through rooms shooting off giant rays of uvc. Light to sterilize a room so huge huge emphasis on clean tech mask tech. You guys wrote about the airpods mask. I have that with me where you know. There's a little disc on the front of it that connects with your smartphone and can give you all kinds of information about the air that you're breathing. How much your breathing. So that was a really really big trend and then also just comfort more comfort and this big buzzword this year delight at home figuring out ways to bring basically your whole entire world inside the walls of your home or even your backyard and have it be a lot better to hang out.

"All right. So riddle me this participants in this corona virus economy you still can't go to concerts right. So what do you do to get your live music fix? 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. So the way this works, it's kind of like the artists are doing karaoke to their own music and each other's and these are called battles but they're more like love fests like here's DM experts Snoop Dogg. This is. Song. But snoop was standing he's bouncing. He's rapping along there've been a bunch of these t pain versus Littlejohn Brandy Verses Monica. Sure I'm brandy. This battle got one point two, million simultaneous views on instagram more than a million people tweeted about it, and afterwards, they had twenty two million streams in the US and they were up overall. I would say probably about three, hundred, four, hundred percent, they own the entire army chart on albums and songs. Larry Jackson is global creative director at Apple Music which is partnered with versus he says, Snoop's album also climbed charts. He thinks versus could be around for a long time. Concerts won't be returning for at least a year. So I think all circumstances of setting it up for this to be. A long running concept. Maybe one reason these battles have been so successful is that they're coming at a time when we really need them Tammy Colonel Teaches, musicology at Miami University in Ohio they have been moments in which people have been able to transcend what has been tragedy I and and find a way to coat when we have physically been cut off in particular the black community the idea came from two black producers Timbaland and Swiss beats.

"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. The companies will cover portion of the federal government will cover the majority of the cost and that's key because after nine eleven, no one was able to get insurance century twenty. One noted that it's insurance did help it recoup losses in New York.

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.

"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..

So that's the base of big misunderstandings I. Think the show do killing was a sort of tragic misunderstanding and think they'll be more in the future more misunderstanding it is a global coach clashing away. 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. Ending that report from Julia, Gold So that's it for another edition of Corona pod. If you've got a couple of sperm and could fill out the survey, we talked about at the start of the show. That would be amazing. I'll put up links that cost in the show. Out For, Corona Free Edition of the regular major lost on Wednesday and also you back here in seven days for the penultimate edition of Crew Import IV management. Thompson thanks for stay.

"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..

"Corona pulled. In this show, we're going to bring you nature. Take on the latest covid nineteen developments. And we'll be speaking to experts around the world about research during the pandemic. This plays out. We also don't know a ton about this. Virus so there's so many open questions. I just have a really hard time. Making predictions that has i. don't know how the outbreaks going to change. Welcome to episode fifteen of Corona. Part I'm Benjamin Thompson back in the south London basement and I'm joined as always by Noah Baker, an amy maximum high both then. Before we get started today a little announcement from us all here. Uh, it feels like the pandemic is moving into a new chapter I think. Maybe you'll both the grill that of course is still ongoing, and the nature of science coverage is changing, and and we're looking to change with it, so we are coming to the end of Corona. What we're going to retire the show in a few episodes, isn't that. That right. Yeah, I think it's starting to become clear to us that we're kind of entering a new phase of the coronavirus pandemic, suddenly thorough here in the UK in the states. Now that's not to say that things aren't still very much going on in in other places of the world area in a very different phase, but I'm the way the AL coverage is working at nature in general. Is the IT's. It's starting to become more integrated into all of our coverage of science and less sort of the sole focus and I. think that's kind of what we're trying to do. Here is retire the colonel specific show, and instead will start bringing all of that reporting into the regular nature past which we we produce on a Wednesday every week. Yeah, that's exactly right of cut down version with all the latest stories are. are going on in the world of Corona virus research that in week, even if we are ending the show, we're going to try to make sure that we keep bits that people like. Yeah, that's right.

"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. Yeah because there's only two ways that life goes back to normal. It's herd immunity or a vaccine and without one of those two things. Everything stays in stasis just like it is now did immunity as we've got enough people who are immune population that the virus can no longer keep sick and this guy says sixty because we need one person passes it onto two point five people in a completely virgin city population of sixty people from noon. It's going to be slightly less than one person you pass onto in the epidemic fights hid. Immunity is do. We need immunity. Well most of us thought this. What will be going from the fist price? Because then it means you can just up your borders garbage locked normally might if you just here and there but you back into a normal. Erie once you've got the the problem is the the cost in human lives to get to it immunity. The flip side is if you not hit immunity you've got the cost and by costuming. Costa's General Seats Economic Costs. Call to the visuals of social disruption. The cost of functioning in society lockdown go into social distance single success. I really challenging since we need. Batra relation of these in goals. And we need bitter discussion than what? We're getting at the moment and bridges back to the dilemma. At the core of this pandemic the economic cost though since the death toll and Tony says the price of flattening the curve. Instead of squashing it could be tens of thousands of.
