The Fight Over Vaccine Passports

"Okay. I think that this term vaccine passport gets thrown around lake. We all understand what it means. Is there a- definition like one what does vaccine passport mean. I think it depends you ask the biden administration would say this would be documentation of people who have been vaccinated and they can present it as needed to travel authorities to businesses. That are requiring some proof of the shot. They actually try and avoid the word passport lizzy. The they've talked about credentialing of this information vaccine. Verification republicans would say that passports are it infringement This is an increasing argument from from the right. That passports are an attempt By the government to collect data in an appropriate way to but into people's personal health decisions and even the use of the word passport is creating some complaint that this is an elitist term that only people who travel internationally have passports. So why why are we even cutting on to that terminal. I mean it's not all that different from the like little yellow cards that you get if you've gotten a a yellow fever shot or something like that when you travel or if you traveled in the past i've i've had inoculations and had to show that cross borders. I remember doing the same. When i went to south america. I think in college but the idea is a little different.

Meet The 'Glacier Mice'

"So now. You told us that tim. Bartholomeusz was surprised that he came across the glacial moss balls but other researchers had encountered them before right yes. They're rare. I mean they don't grow in just any glacier that seems like conditions have to be just right but researchers have spotted them for decades and they've seen them in several places like in alaska. Iceland spelled barred south america while and you know people who see them are generally pretty fond of them. I mean in the nineteen fifties and icelandic researcher described them in the journal of glaciology and he called them. Yoke lamis or glacier mice. I love that glacier mice. Okay so what do we know about these little fuzz. Balls as you're going there's limited research but we do know they can be composed of different moss species so researchers think they form around you know like a little bit of rock or a clump of dust and they just grow up to be pretty big like six inches across or something. And here's the cool thing these moss balls move around and it turns out they move in a coordinated way almost like a herd. Okay that's amazing. Let's let's take the first part. Because when i think of moss i don't think of movement you know it's pretty static i know. But researchers have speculated in the past that they must be moving because otherwise the bottom of the moss ball would be dead. It wouldn't have living moss but if you pick one up off the glacier and you turn it over and look you can see. There's actually green living moss all around the ball moving around rolling in some way.

Brazil’s Ex-President ‘Lula’ May Run for Office Again as Court Cases Are Tossed

"Right president gyroball sonar. Oh is under growing pressure over his response to the pandemic. Now he's facing trouble of a different kind. Supreme Court judges rolled ball scenarios. Political nemesis can run against him in next year's election. Former leftist president Louis in a CEO Lula da Silva was banned from running. Louis and ASIO. Lula da Silva was banned. Louis and ASIO Lulu DeSilva was banned from running in 2018 because he was convicted of corruption. But this new rolling means the Selva, widely known as Lula could have a shot at getting his old job back. We're joined now by NPR's South America correspondent Philip Reeves. Well, what exactly did the judge rule? Well, I don't know whether you remember this. A couple of years ago, Long after leaving office, Lula was convicted of corruption budges. He wound up serving 18 months in jail. Hey, and his supporters always said these charges were politically motivated. Stop him running in the last election in 2018, which they did That's allowing both Salah Toto win yesterday, a Supreme Court judge. Another of those convictions, he decided the court in southern Brazil that bride Lula had no jurisdiction to do so. He ruled the cases should be tried over again by federal court in the capital, Brasilia. And that means that Lula gets his political rights back, at least for now, and therefore, really much to everyone's surprise. He qualifies to be a candidate in next year's president elect presidential elections and can challenge full sooner.

The U.S. could manufacture batteries, but its a dirty business

"The key to a cleaner. Energy future is batteries. Regular listeners will know. I'm a little obsessed with this topic. And now i'm not alone last week. Gm confirmed plans for new battery production. Plant somewhere in the us and last month president biden or a review of the domestic supply chain for large capacity batteries right now. Most of the materials for making batteries come from other countries of those metals including lithium and cobalt can be found here in the us. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners a lot of people when they hear lithium cobalt two rare earth elements. They think that these resources are rare. And they're actually not. I mean you could actually extract from seawater if you had the right technology and the incentive price was high enough so you know you really need three factors to line up to make this happen in the united states number one is need ample capital number. Two is you need political. Will and the third factor is time. Let's those apart a little bit so the capital in some ways that's happening. Does there need to be commensurate. Investment from the united states is it all private. capital could carbon tax. Play into this. I think the majority of the capital that is going to build out the supply chain Is gonna come from the capital markets themselves. I think the government will really be there to backstop some of these strategic projects. But i would not expect the us government whether or not it's specific departments like energy or defense to match the scale of capital in the private markets and then what are the political hurdles to establishing like a new manufacturing industry in the united states. That seems like sort of a no brainer. Actually the challenge has always been. How do we build these minds okay. Mining is quite frankly. It's been a dirty word in the united states for a long time. You have that sort of nimby view where it's great to have access to the raw materials rather than they come from the drc or from china or areas south america. But you know just will mind it elsewhere and we'll import it here in the united states and you know my view has always been that security of supply of the raw material. Is the most important piece of this supply chain. it's interesting though because mining has just been a dirty word. It's been a dirty practice. And so i wonder could the prospect of doing that domestically has to clean up. That industry writ large. Yeah i think. That's a great point. And i completely agree. You know one of the things. I think we really learned from cova and from the us. China trade war was it exposed weaknesses in existing supply chains. One of which was again really not sure about mining practices in countries like china and use them as an example. Because there's sort of the eight hundred pound gorilla when you talk about these supply chains but you know the more of that supply chain that we can bring home and put kind of fresh set of eyes on it. you can kinda rest assured us a consumer that you're utilizing western technology to mine and refine these materials. You know it may be a little bit more expensive. Obviously because of labor costs in particular. But again i think that's probably the price that we're going to pay to make sure that there is full accountability along the supply chain which is what's consumers and governments alike are all looking for right now. If the third aspect is time there is research happening now into creating different types of batteries like do you think that if we put in a big effort to get supply chains here in plus years. We could have moved onto other materials then lithium by then Four automotive capabilities. I don't think anything is going to take the place of lithium ion for the next fifteen years and there is a fair amount of rnd in particular going. Into what would i what i would call next generation lithium ion. But i wouldn't think you'd see really quantum leaps in lithium ion before thousand twenty five. Maybe twenty twenty seven at the earliest. So you know the time is now to build out the infrastructure. Do you think it's an happen. How do you feel about this moment. I think i think you know if we want to use a baseball analogy. Were sort of at the second inning here. I think that what's going to happen over the next. Just this decade. Is i think mobility in particular is going to be completely transformed. I think that the lithium ion battery is going to get much cheaper in terms of dollars per kilowatt hour. That's man that's how you value these batteries. But i think it's going to get a lot cheaper much more quickly than people believe. And that's why you know. The size of the prizes is so enormous. that's why you see countries like china. We want to have twenty five percent of our overall vehicle sales by two thousand twenty five be electric. That's why you see the european union focusing on what they're calling the green new deal to really build out their own self sufficient supply chain again. This is a climate change issue but it's also an enormous issue for job creation also increasing the tax base. So it's it's a. It's a rare opportunity where i think regardless of where you are on the political spectrum. You know maybe you're a hawk and you're worried about national security. You're more of a dove and you're focused on climate change. Everybody can benefit from this. So i think that it's just really an enormous opportunity out over the next five to seven years. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners in january. The federal government approved a large lithium mining operation in nevada. Critics say the approval process was fast tracked at the expense of environmental concerns and now for some related links. There's more reading at marketplace tech or about this lithium mine in nevada in two thousand eighteen. The federal government fast track approval for lithium mining permits. This mine has been portrayed as a way to speed economic recovery. During the pandemic nearby native american tribes hope it will provide jobs on a neighboring reservation. But as chris bury noted everyone is worried about the environmental impact. There are also concerns in nevada about jobs not being distributed to nearby communities and the speed of the approval process which limited public on the mind. So yeah even. Our transition to a greener economy comes with some serious trade-offs and if we don't bring mining to the us that just means outsourcing it to places where the mining practices are not only dirty but carry pretty well documented human rights abuses with them to like child labor allegations and yet this supply chain is the key to transitioning away from fossil fuels. The us is poised to become a big supplier and demand is only going up. But as we mentioned perhaps bringing more mining production the us could shine a light on how these materials are mind and for some improvements.

FDA panel recommends authorization of Johnson & Johnson single-shot vaccine

"Panel. But advisers, the Food and Drug Administration unanimously says go for it authorized the Johnson and Johnson covert 19 vaccine for emergency use. An FDA analysis has found it to be 66%, effective overall in to have a quote, favorable safety profile. Doctor pull off. It has advised the FDA during the vaccine approval process, he's director, the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr Offer. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. The Madonna and and Fizer. Vaccines have a much higher effective, right, Don't they in the mid nineties? So what makes the Johnson and Johnson version a good idea? Just 66%. The return in five for vaccines were tested in the U. S. Only. The Johnson Johnson vaccine was also tested in several countries and South America as well as Mexico and South Africa. So it's not exactly the same population, so it's sort of comparing Apple. Sarge is also the strange that were circulating in South Africa is primarily the South African variant in this strange circulating in Brazil is primarily the Brazilian variant. So there were different strains really that this vaccine was tested against I gather from reports of senior fellow Panelists asked whether Johnson and Johnson's vaccine might be more effective if it were given his two shots, not just one. And that the company is studying this. What's your view on that? So if you look at the studies, they did the pre clinical studies they did in nonhuman primates, as well as the phase one to a studies. They didn't people. What they found was that second dose did increase the tighter or quantity. Virus specific, neutralizing Anna by suggesting that it might be more effective. It's very effective, though it preventing severe disease after a single dose, And it induces the kind of response so called sailor immune response that looks like it's going to have a fairly long that memory, which is all good. But that second off, maybe more effective. I think we'll probably know that by the second half of this year in which case then one could get a booster does. But this certainly provides protection against what you care about, which is hospitalization. I see you admission and death. It's it's virtually 100% effective at doing that. And if authorization follows soon, when one might the vaccine come to pharmacies, another vaccination sites and and how much right so it was follows the pattern of what we saw with the visor and then Madonna vaccines. Usually the FDA advisory committee, in which I said makes the recommendation. The FDA usually follows that recommendation within a day or two, And then it goes to the CDC, which then makes their recommendations about which group or groups might best benefit from this vaccine. That all happens within about a five day period. And then the vaccine can sort of roll off the assembly line into the arms of the American public. Doctor. Often you're a pediatrician. What do you tell parents who are concerned about vaccine for their Children, Andreas tely getting it and also concerned, for example, about what seems to be an increase in multi system, inflammatory syndrome and Children. Were rare but serious disease that's connected to covet. Truthful. I think the Children can suffer from this disease and with that multi system inflammatories is and they can occasionally dime. It's rare, but about as many Children have died of this infection is died of influenza a couple years ago and as typically dive influence every year, so I think we do need of actually, but we can't give that vaccine so we've tested in Children. And I think you're now seeing studies done for in the 12 18 year old. I think when those studies As we lost Dr off it. I think, I think, Doc. I think Dr effect. Well, Dr Paul off it. Remember the FDA vaccine advisory panel? We thank him for being with us if he can still hear us and our regret that apparently, the line

A virtual meeting of the g seven johnson will urge more money to be given to kovacs. The un initiative aimed at making sure global distribution of vaccines is done fairly. His call comes after accusations that nations who can afford it have been stockpiling for more doses than they actually need which joining me as a political reporter monocle. Twenty four regular events in mckinney. Good morning many demoting. What is boris. Johnson expected to say at the g seven this the first time that g seven has met since april twenty twenty s head of physical meeting in cohen will in gene and the prime minister. Getting to try and kind of lift the is above the horizon. He's going to say that between them. The g seven countries have ordered about a billion surplus vaccines and they need to make sure that they get these out through the kovacs scheme which will distribute them around the well to poorer nations in order to stop the creation and spread of new variants. The kinds of which that we've seen coming out of a particularly south africa and brazil. Which a have these variants which seemed to have some kind of Resistance to the current stock of vaccines. So he's going to be encouraging them that it's in all of their benefit to get those supplies out. This is an interesting move. Boris johnson because up until now there were seeming presidency of the g seven. But boris johnson hasn't really shown his face as a world statesman yet. This is his first real show outing. Yesterday as prime minister being about eighteen months hasn't because of the crisis brexit hundred have real kind of trips around the world going to these kind of big conferences.

Charting of the Human Genome, 20 Years Later

"We're talking about challenges for genetic research. 20 years after the first draft of the human genome was published with my guests, Dina Zelinsky, a bio infirm, a Titian with the Paris transplant group. And elite scientists for civil tech and crystal, soc and indigenous geneticist bioethicist with Vanderbilt University and the Native Bio Data Consortium Crystal I introduced you as a co founder of the Native Bio Data Consortium. Which gets to an issue we've talked about in different ways on this program in the past indigenous sovereignty over genetic data, please remind us how big an issue this is. Yeah. So when we talk about precision, medicine and health were always promising that the next advantages and innovations will be conferred to those individuals that contribute the genomic information. The pandemic has shown that preventive healthcare and structural barriers to access to health care probably highlighted more about health disparities than this UN pronounced supposed to future advantages of healthcare. Indigenous peoples have You know, willingly or unwillingly contributed their didna for the supposed betterment of humankind Need I remind everybody what happened after the completion of the Human Genome Project. We had the completion of large scale diversity projects such as the Human Genome Diversity Project and 1000 genomes project, which were denounced by over 600 plus indigenous nations worldwide that went to United Nations because they were concerned. About privatization and commercialization and exploitation of indigenous genomes and what has happened to those biomarkers collected from indigenous peoples from Central South America. Those bio markers are now freely and openly accessible to companies such as ancestry, Didna and 23 Me ancestry. Edna has hosted revenues over a billion dollars every holiday quarter since 2017 so we always have to ask yourselves. What exactly are the protections? Really? This data privacy and commercialization. The rate of technology outpaces our regulations, these new technologies and while we think that these protections are conferred by laws, which is the genetic Information nondiscrimination Act Last change. Companies are bought and sold. So we have to ask yourself what's the commercial value? The data that we're being asked to freely give away and how can we look to communities and empower communities to self directed decisions that are being made using their data? Dina, you contributed your data, and you gave it away freely. Do you not feel the same kind of threat here that exist? Not quite in the same way. No individuals of European ancestry make up the vast majority of genetic studies, and that's really problematic because they only make up 6% of the population. And I, I completely understand the threats to underrepresented populations. We should be sequencing these underrepresented populations, but we should be sequencing them with the idea of Making genomics research more equitable of giving back to these communities, not just taking from them. That being said, I can't even explain how useful data like that from the 1000 genomes project has been. I've used it in most of my projects. I have whole human genomes at the tip of my fingers. When I'm accessing this data, as well as other scientists, I think We generally have good intentions, so I currently use it in a study to better understand Parkinson's disease. That being said. I think in many cases, a lot of this data has restricted or limited access for researchers versus commercial entities. I agree here that we we really should limit what industry can or cannot do with with our data. Krystal. You mentioned preventive care and the pandemic. The human Genome Project. I remember promised to tell us everything about her genome. Doesn't this sort of tell people Hey, we know everything about you now and ignore the nurture part of the nature nurture debate. What I can tell you as a geneticist. My first skepticism and what I always tell tribal leaders is that genetic data is just the easiest type of data to collect. But genetic data does not. Predict as much about disease risk than we think. Other things such as access to care, cultural factors, colonial factors relating to help probably contribute more to the health differences and outcomes than actual genetics itself. Things like diet environment and lifestyle are things that we should be looking at. And definitely socioeconomic status by factors. But these are the hardest bits of data to collect. And so we really can't build truly robust models without looking at these other factors related to health. So looking at genetics and biological factors is sometimes a little bit of a cop out. You don't necessarily properly convey the limitations of genetics and biological research to the lay

Entrepreneur on FIRE

Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha

"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots

"We see in plane and pilot magazine. We finally know exactly how bad the pandemic has been for. Airline pilots and the numbers here are pretty staggering and eliminating max indeed. I was really quite stunned to take a look and see. Just how bad things are. I mean we all know that the airlines have been hit disproportionately hard here during the pandemic that know some pilots have been out of work. This was a survey done by goose. Which is a pilot. Recruitment firm not for birds but for a and they found that nearly half of all pilots worldwide. Either looking for work or on furlough which was shocking to me. They said that thirty percent of the people surveyed were out of work and looking and other seventeen percents that they were furloughed awaiting further news and additional. Six percents said they were still employed with their airline. But we're doing non-flying works pretty stunning. Half half the pilots Basically out of work or looking for work in this comes from a survey of two thousand five hundred ninety eight pilots. This survey was open for four weeks just to kind of set. The timeframe in it closed october thirtieth twenty twenty and it was anonymous survey thirty questions and the survey was designed for pilots of all ranks. First officers second officers and cadets in some of the data in this is just really really fascinating and we'll have a link to the survey report which was done in conjunction with flake global. And a you just peruse some of this and find some really really interesting interesting things but By way of demographics of those almost twenty six hundred pilots forty-three percent of the respondents were in europe. Nineteen percent from the middle east and africa eighteen from asia pacific Twelve percent from north. America six percent from south america and two percent from china. So it's pretty Pretty global in the survey touches on things like pilot retention pilot job security employee engagement even Stress mental health wellbeing things like that so Some really really interesting statistics Couple of the ones that i like. Maybe if you guys saw some things that piqued your interest but one of the questions was when do you think aviation will make a full recovery to pre covid levels and not. Surprisingly only ten percent said up to one year the biggest spike was up to two years. Thirty four percent of the pilots thought up to two years but twenty eight percent up to three years and longer than that twelve percent four years. Ten percent five years and six percent said they thought it would never never be the same So that's the pilot's perspective. No one was. Do you think your mental health has been affected by the pandemic and here there is a direct correlation between the age of the pilot and the pursuit pilots that group in In how many of them thought that their mental health had been a acted for those pilots. Fifty five to sixty four years old thirty. Two percent thought their mental health had been affected for pilots forty five to fifty four years old but younger thirty six percent when we go down to thirty five to forty four year olds forty four percent of them thought. Their mental health has affected in the twenty five to thirty four year old group forty-nine percent and pilots under twenty four years old fifty eight percent of them thought their mental health had been affected by the pandemic so. I thought that was a really interesting result. I wasn't totally surprised by the The differences once. You mentioned the difference. I thought okay but it's the younger folks are having a tougher time. Think about someone who's twenty four years old this may be the first In a bad thing that's happened to them in their in their career folks are in their mid fifty s have probably gone through multiple things in the past and probably a better able to to ride through a downturn whereas you know young folks just not have that cushion of You know savings built up to right through. Its doesn't surprise me but still it's a large large number folks nearly six percent under a twenty-four saying mental health. Been impacted the the demographics of the respondents in terms of gender. Was you know the numbers are kind like the same numbers we've seen for a long time. Almost all male four percent female in one percent preferred not to say. I'm not sure why they would prefer not to say in. An anonymous survey but four percent identified themselves as female Which really kind of hope that that number would be coming up. Ron wouldn't when you're looking at programs With youth today. do you see more. young girls. Becoming interested involve is that number higher than four percent. I hope well Here were making a concerted effort to make sure it's higher than four percent Right now we're preparing for Air venture and we've got A program within the air venture program called girl venture We've also got One for adults named Women's sore And between those two we really want to invite women to get more involved and engaged in aviation and so We see a higher than i would say. Four percent level here

Johnson and Johnson says single-shot COVID-19 vaccine is 85 percent effective

"What's going on. When it comes to Cove in 19, and more specifically, Pursuit for more vaccines because we've got some big news from J and J Today. In fact, it's our top story on the Bloomberg In the past hour, Johnson and Johnson's one shot vaccine generating strong protection Against covered 19. They did him a large late stage trials, raising hopes that it can rapidly reshape US stumbling immunization campaign. We know the role. It has been really tough, but you've been pointing to the numbers preventing 66% Moderate to severe cases of covert 19, according to the company. Particularly effective stopping severe disease is preventing 85% of severe infections and 100% of hospitalizations and deaths. That's the number you've been focusing on. And it's a big one. All right, let's bring in our guest post op pulls his vice chairman of the executive committee, a change a also chief scientific officer at J and J and he joins us on the phone or actions should say Zoom. From New Brunswick, New Jersey. We also do want to welcome our Bloomberg TV audience. Who is joining who are joining us at this time? Um, Paul, it is so nice to have you here with us. First of all, Thank you so much and welcome. Talk to us about the findings. There's some difference statistics in terms of the efficacy. What is it that we need to zero and in on and what's really the most significant your view? So we did a very large study of 45,000 people in the US South America in Latin America in a totally different environment, where now huge transmission but also many variants or presence, and what we saw is that in the high in the severe disease We got a very high protection 85% against severe disease as well as 100% for death and hospitalization, and that across the entire study, including the South African study, and why is that important? That's 6000 people in South Africa, and we found that 90% of this train spread inside African strains, and we got even a better we got from 89% perfection in South Africa against the severe disease that 100% against hospitalization and other begins percent against that, so that shows that the vaccine is applications in in severe disease. Smell us against significant new strains. Given the results of this study, do you expect new and even more powerful variants to emerge in the future? Yeah, we have to stay very vigilant. There's so much fire a virus replication in the world. And now new vaccines being used and the virus is following the Darwin principles. The fittest survive, and they will take over as in in that race, And so you will see probably more variants. But strong immunity, antibody immunity and so immunity probably can overcome that. But we have to stay very vigilant and we have been able to do that with a single does, and I think that is going to be very effective in faster allowed as we are making a billion dollars in the course of the year. Well, let's talk about that. Because when you talked with our David Westin last fall, Paul, that's exactly what you talked about A billion doses you anticipated for 2021. So that's a real number. You expect it And can you give us an idea? That billion dose roll out. What does it look like over the next few months? So at the moment we are, we are setting up many of manufacturing plants in late stage. We are getting approval from different regulators in the world on that, so it's in full upscaling. And as we will deliver a billion over the year, it will be region by region, country by country. We work with the government to discuss on how much will be available when it will come in equivocator, but we are confident that we will be able to make Provide a billion in the course of the year. But what does that mean that? I mean, obviously, you've got get the emergency approval. So give me an idea of what the timeline is. I think we're all kind of Fixated on getting the vaccine so that our life can get back to normal. So what does the emergency approval process look like? And then when you actually anticipate getting vaccines into arms, and then at what rate Them so we will submit a filing next week. So we know that the data now for three days, we We worked on it that we finalized. That's what we published today. Next week will submit And then the FDA and Emma will have to do their work. The European fella to use a U. S agency will start their work and most likely towards the end of February will have an advisory panel bending of course decision off the FDA and then we'll see getting approval. Emergency use approve. Full and then in March will be able to start living vaccine. So you think a realistic timeline for us to actually receive Johnson and Johnson single dose vaccine would be March? It will start in the month of March, but they're also with US government. We have made an agreement over this off for several for 400 million vaccines to start with, I will keep up to that agreement to be able to deliver that. I'm wondering how you see this shot being used in the context of this is you call Pandemic Recovery tool kit, you know, especially fitting in with the Amarna vaccines that we see from during a and Fizer As well. The rollout of those has has been really tough here in the United States. There's been a lot of speed bumps, but you don't have to keep this one at a temperature for very, very cold temperature for a significant period of time. I mean, they're a lot of differences here. How do you see the rollout working in the context of these other vaccines? Well, it's it your point of the right thing. It's a single dose. So it one shot. You get this protection starting day 14 and and if you know, mature, said 28 even lot longer, so that goes fast. And then it It has to do it Celsius, which is normal refrigeration temperature for stability for three months so we can distribute in the country at normal refrigeration, which allows to get fractionated almost in every health care center pharmacy in a very simple way s O and that that will help and the single shot combined with that. And a high efficacy poor for severe disease. That hospitalization can have a very important effect. In addition, very short, very clean safety profile we have. We have not observed serious adverse events. No, an electric shock so further to be evaluated by the regulators. But that will also be an attractive feature with the very favorable safety profile. So that means that people who perhaps have not been in who had been advised against getting Marnie vaccine, This could be an option for them. Be an option, but it will be determined by the authorities who will get access first as this is emergency use application. It's ah, it will be distributed by the government. Hey,

Porcupines vs. Armadillos

"Hi i'm molly bloom. And this is smash boom best the show where we take two things smash them together and ask you to decide which one is best today to courageous critters take the stage. It's armadillos versus porcupines. Which brave and beautiful beast claim the crown. Will it be the master of armor or the king of quills. It won't be easy but luckily hob taste here to help us decide high hobday so hobday when i say armadillo what comes to mind so they have like armor and they got like roll up. And how about when. I say porcupine what comes to mind when i say porcupine many many needles like neil all around so this is going. Be a tough decision. Porcupines versus armadillos is gonna be a a close to me. I think this is going to be a really close debate. They both have really interesting ways of defending themselves. So what tips. Do you have far debaters today. How can they convince you. I'll say humour in facts. Those are some great debate strategies. All right now. It's time to introduce our debaters arguing for the heroic hard shelled armadillo. It's phyllis fletcher. Hi phyllis hey now. Phyllis in a single sentence why are armadillos. The most awesome because they are fabulous and tough a very compact argument. I like it here. To rep proud and prickly team porcupine. It's tracy mumford high tracy. Hey they're feeling sharp. Tracy give us your take on. Why porcupines are the perfect creature. Porcupines bring their super punk attitude across so many continents showed off their thrills and quills and surviving in the wild ready to rock. We are off to a very strong start but remember it. All comes down to hobday's opinion when him over and win the match. Phyllis and tracy are you up for the challenge. Yup so ready. Hey before we start. Let's recap the rounds. I it's the declaration of greatness team. Armadillo and t porcupine will each deliver. A statement in defense of their side using fabulous facts figures and stories. Each team will also have thirty seconds to make a rebuttal next. It's the micro around a creative challenge that both sides have already prepared for then. It's the sneak attacks a surprise challenge that will require debaters to use all of their skills to score a point and then the final six are debaters will make their last argument in just six words. A sweet short and crucial round table. Be giving out points along the way. But he'll keep his score a secret until the very end listeners. We want you to judge too. If you'd like to score on an official scorecard you can download one on our website at smash boom dot org or just make your own okay everybody. Are you ready so ready. Yep yep definitely perfect that it's time for the declaration of greatness Are debaters will present the most fascinating facts and awesome arguments in favor of their side. We flipped a coin. And phyllis your up. I get us amped up about armadillos. Imagine if you really don't like something that's happening or he thinks someone's going to come over and try to start something. Imagine you just turn into a ball. Just you're a ball and your shell is tough like a bike helmet. Your whole body is just a big sphere. Made out of bike helmet stuff. You're almost like a transformer. You just shape shifting. You don't have to deal with anything until you come out. That is the life of an armadillo. The armadillo is fabulous and tough. It looks funny and it has other weird qualities which i shall name however it's weird qualities are exactly what. Make it so tough. And so fabulous. I defy you to name a better animal. An armadillo kind of looks like a cross between a turtle an anti-terror it lives in south america. Central america and the southern. Us it's a mammal it walks around on all fords. It can be anywhere from three inches long to five feet depending what kind it is and it has a show a lot of the time it's tan which makes it look like a football and for the armadillos that can curl up and hide. Those ones can look like a tiny volleyball.

"Him. But the reason I bring up that example to answer your question is one of the great shame the Northwest Amazon a real Iowa. SCO Master Don Lauria noise long gone. Now of the Ghana People's once asked him how long does it take you to become a shame in? A tight that's would in their language that's what they call. How long did it take you to become tighter and he says, you know my son he says in your system, you have to go to school for three years to come doctor he says in your years he. I'm over ninety. He says I'm still learning. Thought. That is a true Shaman. Let me sub in for quite a few listeners out there to follow up on your mention of eighty-seven or so. Times at the Cup with Iowa. The question that one might ask is why so many times my why keep doing it? Is this not supposed to be the wham Bam you van Damme One stop shopping where you come in and you have this transfer of an experience why keep going back to the? Well, how would you respond to that? It's an excellent question and like I said, I, may not know this it's my job seven of the tribes who work with the original WASCO tribes. He's the same tribes at target to shelties. So when you want to work with the an Iowa schedule and he says what we have to do this ceremony we do. Okay very, very, very few occasions Tim have I gone down there and said, I'm having a problem. I have an issue I can't deal with I really whenever ceremony in almost every single case it was part of funding with these people. It was part of communicating with these people. It was never like, Hey, here's a great champion. Let me give this a world. I don't work that way. You know as an ethnobotanist, you don't WanNa be ashamed snob like, Oh, well, I know a real shame and you don't sorta stuff. It's nonsense. However, it does give you access to this Chamonix world and you're dealing with the real deal in and I wanNA bring up our mutual friend Michael Pollen. I. Hope Everybody read Michael. Michael's great book on Hallucinogenic. Plants. In practice and one thing that comes through repeatedly time and time again is. This is not a toy people with mental ailments were often the ones who go down to the rainforest in search of these things often come back worse so that you really need to be dealing with the real deal and stuff that you buy on the internet or workshops you you hear about on the Internet you've got to be real careful because it's not like smoking a joint. You know you can really have a bad trip it can really do you harm. and. So the point here is not to say, okay, well, I've done eighty seven times tim you've only done at eighty time. So you know I'm a bigger stuff than your. That's ridiculous. I remember when I was back in college in people would like well, the people smoke the most dope supposed to be the lightest. How that workout, right? There are people to go and take, Iowa. I. got it. I got what I needed a never going to do it again or the shame and will tell them. Okay. You don't need to do this anymore or you need to take another copper don't you dare take another cup You know this is how it has to be regarded. Unique wouldn't go to a doctor that you you heard about on the Internet who didn't have an MD and wasn't certified why would you undergo something so profound and frankly risky with just some fly by night operation. Yeah I want to mention a few things to underscore a few the points that you made the. So the first Michael Palin for interested his book, How to change? Your mind is exceptional. I also have two interviews with UN's podcast great thirty, thousand foot view as well as experiential account of someone who is psychedelic naive. Researching not just the history but the current day and also having his own first person experiences and to the point related to risk just to give a few concrete examples so that people understand what can happen. In some areas of Peru and certainly hallucinogens are not limited to Peru these plants and there are many different types of plans are not limited to prove. But that has become one of the top destinations for those seeking some type of transcendent experience or desperate to address a problem. They've not been able to address and in some areas because and other parts of Peru there are. A lot of basically walking dead I'M NOT GONNA say dead. But you have these Westerners who've had psychotic breaks just wandering around homeless I. Mean It's a non trivial problem and it's really important. Understand that these compounds can cause in what Roland Griffiths at Hopkins would call ontological shock where you're perception of reality is so fundamentally shifted that you cannot get back to more your boat. You cannot get back to the dock and I know someone personally who actually know multiple people who went down he did a a data which evolved fasting and consuming a plant in this case, cheeks and angle, which is very valuable in a number of context. But whether it was the administration or his genetic predisposition or any number of other factors, he was untethered from reality for a good I want to say was between one and two months in his family had to fly down to South America and the only way they could get him on a plane was by convincing him that he was God and that he would be doing them a great service. It would be a demonstration of his power to get on this plane with them to back the United States I mean, this is. Not to say typical experience, but it's not altogether rare alternatively. So I do enough to take us too far into the of encyclopedic list of these types of side effects, but you have to treat them very carefully. So if you're, you wouldn't go on craigslist to find a neurosurgeon and I. Don't think you should you know by Iowa for your slow cooker on the dark web and? Invite. Your.

Two Thousand Census Dot Gov to be counted. It's Thursday may twenty eighth. I'm Oscar Ramirez from the daily dive. Podcast in Los Angeles and this is your daily coronavirus. Update thanked South. America has become a new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic Brazil. Now has the second. Most cases of nineteen only behind the United States and President Bolsonaro is still refusing to impose strict measures to curb the spread other countries like Peru and Chile are also facing increased numbers. Alex Ward reporter at Vox and Co host of the worldly. Podcast joins US FOR HOW SOUTH? America's numbers are going up. Thanks for joining us. Alex happy to be here. Wanted to talk about where. The current corona virus epicenter seems to be. Obviously the United States has the most cases in the world but South America is quickly rising with the number of cases they have Brazil as a matter of fact is number two in the world with the largest number of confirmed cases currently. And there's what happened in China. What happened in America? Everybody suspects that it's actually worse than it is. Because lack of testing the healthcare systems are being overloaded. So Alex tell us a little bit about how South America has become this new corona virus epicenter while the story is somewhat begins and ends with Brazil. There President Gerbil scenario has refused to take on the crisis calling it. A little flew himself going outside and hanging out with supporters who are protesting lockdowns and promoting hydroxy. Cork Wind is some sort of cure for the disease. Although there is no evidence to support that in fact there's a lot to say that it could be dangerous so while some regional leaders governors etc are trying to fight the disease. That's just not happening in part because the president is unwilling to put the nation's resources behind solving it so most of South America's cases are in Brazil. Which is part of the reason. If not the reason why South America has just exploded. You having the. Who even say it is now. One of the world's epicenters that said there are other cases happening elsewhere. But when we're really talking about South America's growth as a corona virus hotspot. It really is because of Brazil. Peru and Chile are other big countries in South America. That are starting to see a lot of cases but let's focus on Brazil a little bit more I have. They implemented any type of social distancing measures nationwide or. Is it a lot of this stuff? Just being done on the state and local level. It's really mostly down to state and local level. I mean Bolsonaro. Himself is not really willing to do a national program. Let's say part of the political crisis that he has started in Brazil. Is that governors. And mayors want to impose on. They are imposing lockdowns and some of the biggest places in the country. Rio De Janeiro Sao Paulo but Dawson artists. Want to do that. So this is leading him to fight with his own political leader some of which are in his own party and for some in. These are experts saying this. There's some experts claiming that Wilson are doing this in part to claim more political power for himself that he's trying to use the corona virus to gain more influence in the executive to minimize the power of other leaders and that seems to be backfired because hundreds of thousands are getting infected tens of thousands of dying. And it's just no end in sight for that crisis as this virus has moved throughout the world. We've had different epicenters at different times. Obviously Italy was one of the hardest. Hit and you would just think that some of these other countries would have taken some clues from how they operated. Obviously the United States tried to do that. Testing was one of our big failures early on so you have to kind of learn as you go and some of these countries just haven't been able to do that. I know there's different cases all over the place in particular. Some of these South American countries are very poor and they're very food poor. There's not enough to go around so Brazil. Peru Chile. A lot of people are having break their quarantines or get out into the public markets crowded public markets. Because they need to buy food. I think it's undoubtedly true that lockdowns and testing and tracing these are the things that are prescribed and are the best practices. You have the more. You're looking at cases in South America and even parts of Africa finding is that lockdowns are kind of rich nations game. It's really hard. For countries that have a high levels of poverty high levels of people in the informal sector? These are folks. That really aren't on tax rolls. They are musicians. Artists Street sheds a river may be these kinds of folks aren't able to purchase food and store it for long periods of time. They need to go outside for work. They need to go outside to get food to consume day of and you are seeing example after example and places like Peru and Chile wherever it could be. I mean heartbreaking testimony from people whether saying I basically have to choose between social distancing or getting booed for my family and some have even said explicitly by go outside. The Corona virus is a possibility. But if I don't go outside and get food starving certainty and so. This is the kind of choice now. The people have to make in areas like South America. And it's part of the reason why social distancing and lockdowns and all these other measures which have worked with varying degrees of success elsewhere or just not really working in that part of the world interesting statistic from the twenty seventeen cents is out of Peru forty nine percent of Peruvian homes. Don't own a freezer. Basically so you mentioned people having to go out and have to purchase day of food. They have to get their food every day at these local markets and yeah. They're braving the large crowds to do so in that case what we know about the healthcare systems in the South American countries because obviously that is one of the big things getting overloaded too. Many patients not enough support to go round there. Would we know about their healthcare systems. It differs depending on the country but by and large. It's just not great. You know there. Aren't that many you beds testing in tracing capabilities are minimal. The amount of doctors available for patients are low in. You know there are tons of people as you were saying. Poverty is quite widespread in South America. It's hard to people to pay for services and so there's great inequality in terms of hospitals or medical centers in impoverished areas. They are while there are some better ones in more urban centers and enrich areas. And so this is part of the problem. Is that as more people get sick. The ability for people to go get care is going to be really hard or even good care is going to be hard and the other issue here. That's America's now entering its winter right here in the United States. We are heading into summer but the southern hemisphere is heading into winter and that gets the flu season and this adds to the bunch of problems that the region already has with certain disease like d'engagement go at Cetera had flu and then of course the coronavirus. It's only going to overwhelm already taxed and under funded and under resourced medical centers. Down the line. It just is not looking like a good situation to the point. Dive experts telling me they're expecting a major collapse of South America's healthcare systems over the next few months. I mean obviously we wish them the best and they can get a handle on it but as you mentioned some of the experts are saying it looks pretty bad. And I'm assuming they're going to start looking for from other countries as well so we'll have to see how it pans out there as the virus continues to make its way throughout the World Alex Ward reporter at Vox and Co host of the worldly podcast.

"That the traffic concerns will be less severe. These are neighborhoods to begin with not necessarily the best place for commuters to be cutting through in the first place at the same time. You have had pushback. You've had people's sort of responding that this is some sort of leftist effort to sort of take over the public streets for logical purpose. So you're GonNa have a discussion about what makes sense especially as you point out if there are particular neighborhoods where it really starts to jam up traffic but the officials have been telling me at least in the conversations. I had was that streets make up twenty five thirty percent of the cities real estate. And they're saying that. They think that they could successfully balance of the use of that real estate more toward people and walking and biking and things like that for the long haul. They think they can do. It would be interesting to see if they're right. Mike Laris Transportation reporter at the Washington. Post thank you very much for joining us they took. Ucsf pulled out the stops. I mean they cleared out an entire floor of their main medical campus in San Francisco. Thirty one beds. They reopened a facility to take another like fifty three ovid cases of festus earnings. Now Jim Carlton Reporter for The Wall Street Journal and San Francisco. Thanks for joining us. Jim On day Oscar. I'm doing well. Thank you WanNa talk about the preparation that that a lot of hospitals went into to prepare for corona virus cases early on we were looking at other examples such as China and Italy. Italy especially was so overwhelmed by cove nineteen and there was legitimate fears here in the United States at that could happen here. So hospitals went into overboard to prepare a lot of those cases. Never really bore out you know in some hot spots like New York or Louisiana. They did have huge influxes but in other places we overprepared and thankfully we didn't need to use all those resources. Jim You wrote a lot about San Francisco. The University of San Francisco in particular and their preparations are cases. That never really came. Tell us a little bit about that. Make a good point that I mean. I think that this is a case of most of the country. Kinda overprepared and there were exceptions New York. I think overwhelmed but mostly I think hospitals had the resources and San Francisco so the University of California San Francisco. Ucsf was one of the key medical institutions. There's going to be facing with autism. An onslaught on the west coast a lot of Chinese airline Chinese flights so really the predictions were that San Francisco is going to be overwhelmed and so. Ucsf pulled out the stops. I mean they cleared out an entire floor of their main medical campus in San Francisco. Thirty one beds they reopened facility to take another like fifty three. Cova cases a festive. And so they did a lot of other things. They ended up not getting that many cases but they're happy as they were ready and that goes into all of this preparation is there's a high cost for it overall. I Guess Hospital Facilities. This is probably throughout the country. They're expected to lose about two hundred and two billion dollars so far losses because of canceled surgeries and costs associated with treatment of cove in nineteen. But a lot of these people especially if they're in San Francisco. There are not regretting over preparing. They're happy that they were able to do it. That we didn't need it and in case of a second wave that could possibly becoming some experts have said that they're at least ready for it snowed. Ucsf for example revenues last year. We're about four point five billion dollars and they haven't said what the is going to be this year but it's GonNa be a lot less than that for sure and I think there's already talk. Follow is going on throughout the nation and that number you mentioned two hundred two billion. That was an estimate for the American Hospital Association and there is going to be a lot of pain in terms of the budgetary red ink but alternative like you said outset overwhelmed. Hospitals people stacked up. I think that they want to make sure that didn't happen. And importantly we have this possibility of a dreaded second wave and so if we do get the second wave places like San Francisco going to be much better prepared than they would be otherwise so I think they feel like it definitely is worth it. Tell us about some of the cases that UCSF actually handled. I knew they handle some of the very very first cases there in the bay area and officials. There really felt like since they weren't overwhelmed. They really were able to kind of get good at it so when they had a few more they were already ready to go. So the first case in the country was up in the Seattle area but the next one is came down here in the bay area Ashley. Ucsf they've been doing some emergency planning late January when it hit Wuhan was moving to Europe and then headed here next and like the next weekend they got a couple from San Benito County with cove at nineteen and they were created and so ucsf was able to kind of practice they had a whole floor that was negative pressure for Cova cases and so they got to put on their full p kind of work out the kinks and whatnot and so they got some practice. The case started coming in but San Francisco overall. We've had like two thousand cases total in San Francisco since March compared to over two hundred thousand New York City but UCSF had about eighty five cases including four. Does I mean that. Sounds like a lot and they weren't no cases but it wasn't anything like they didn't anticipate definitely able to handle this. So where does? Ucsf STAN now. Do they leave that whole floor dedicated to cove in nineteen just in case as the time goes by scaling back and I am assuming also that they've started to at least do some other elective procedures have begun to do any of that stuff suspended elected and scheduled surgeries for a few ways. But they've gone back to that now. One interesting thing is food services. I was looking at. How do you plan for food services at a hospital cafeteria for pandemic and what they had done is that they had just completed? Retool THAT OPERATION. They had lost all of their customers. The Visser's visitors were prohibited from going in for a long time and so they had to skill their operations back. But that's starting to come back to normal. There's this back again. So the cost slowly leading up on a break and start recurring a little bit to normal. But they're still at the ready just in case Jim Carlton Reporter for The Wall Street Journal based in San Francisco. Thank you very much for joining us. Okay thank you pat. That's it for today.

"Period to try to help some of these businesses, and also beyond the issue of restaurants, you have people just needing to to exercise. These officials say sidewalks in some places crowded. Cities can be too narrow sort of cars. Buzzing buys so they're trying to find ways to address is now. Is Mike Laris Transportation reporter at the Washington Post, thanks for joining US Mike. You Bet nice to talk to you. We're talking about reopening America getting back to normal, but there's a lot of stuff that won't be normal for a little while they're. Social distancing will remain with us for quite some time it seems and the force distancing that's required by corona virus right now is leading to a lot of cities to close some public spaces. Some public roads to make room so that residents can walk a little more freely we. We can open a bike lanes and especially for restaurants, a lot of people are doing kind of out door seating just to help with the distancing and help with the airflow, and all that and some of the cities are closing these roads so that even the restaurants can start moving into those roads with their seating arrangements, Mike. Tell us a little bit about what's going on to help. Reopen the country. It's been really quite interesting I. talked to transportation and city officials around the country for the story, and they basically said that they were trying to do everything they could to help. Businesses open up especially restaurants where it was too dangerous to have people packed inside, they said one solution was to sort of help everyone, get outside, and that even includes on public streets that have been closed down. That was done in Tampa in Florida. It's being considered in Washington. Washington, DC, it's being done in other places around the country. The idea is just. Can we do anything creative in this sort of awful period to try to help some of these businesses, and also beyond the issue of restaurants, you have people just needing to to exercise. These officials say sidewalks in some places crowded. Cities can be too narrow sort of cars. Buzzing buys so they're trying to find ways to address. That would've officials said about some of these. These propose ideas. It seems like they are getting a lot of support at least to close the roadways and whatnot really anything to do to get people out there and get the economy moving again. It's been interesting to talk to the folks in Minneapolis and what they were able to sort of cut through some of the bureaucratic problems that usually come up when you're trying to do anything in government, and they were able to stitch together, even just the city. City of Minneapolis thirty eight miles of protected roadways for walking biking for rolling for people with disabilities, just trying to find ways to sort of take this awful situation and see if they can't sort of ease. People's Discomfort Oakland is a big example of doing this. They have a plan that's called slow streets, so they've been closing a lot of the roadways to allow people to get out and move. Tell us a little bit about what they've been doing. The people that Oakland were really early on this, and in talking to some of the city's elsewhere the country they've been talking to the peacful in Oakland. Oakland was able to so far close off about twenty miles of neighbourhood streets. They call them soft closures that they put up. A barrier is say through traffic, but they let delivery trucks come in. They let people drive back up to their homes, but they just say this is not a through street. This is not for sort of barreling through and that it's going to be used. Used by more than cars I mean the folks in Oakland described seeing parents with young kids on scooters at the same time as a recycling truck, which is pretty hard to imagine, but officials there said that drivers were taking incredibly seriously, and that parents were comfortable in these neighborhoods where they had clear barriers, and said this is not for through Traffic Oakland's and interesting case, too, because they got some sort of feedback early on that. Hey, this is welcome. They found from surveys that they found. That allows people responding to the surveys. Surveys were better off and tend to be wider and from neighborhoods where people earn more money, and so what they did is just on Friday they kind of re-jigger some of the programs, so that now they're also trying to target wider thoroughfares to try to slow down traffic so that if someone is walking to the supermarket or some other sort of a central place is what they call it that the cars will be slower that people have more room to walk and that they'd be able to get across streets, so it's A. A pretty interesting that that people have been saying essentially that they need to be Nimble. If changes like this are to be lasting, you said it there, so the big question is traffic. How are they handling traffic? Because of your closing streets that were once being widely used. Let's say it's GonNa create backups in other areas and I know traffic may be a little light right now, but we're already starting to see it. Pick back up as more people are getting out there. How are they going to handle this part of it? That really does seem like the crucial question. You mentioned part of it, which is that traffic is down a lot right now? What the officials say is that in this context of slower than normal traffic, things have been working well, and they seem to be sort of dividing this into a couple of pieces in some neighborhoods, some of the precise talk to Oakland. Oakland and others say that they hope to be able to continue this first significant amount of time and those neighborhoods. The the contention is essentially that the traffic concerns will be less severe. These are neighborhoods to begin with not necessarily the best place for commuters to be cutting through in the first place at the same time. You have had pushback you've had. Had People's sort of responding that this is some sort of leftist effort to sort of take over the public streets for an ideological purpose. So you're GonNa have a discussion about what makes sense especially as you point out if there are particular neighborhoods where it really starts to jam up traffic, but the officials have been telling me at least in the conversations. Conversations I had was that streets make up what twenty five thirty percent of the cities real estate and they're saying that they think that they could successfully balance of the use of that real estate more toward people and walking and biking and things like that for the long haul. They think they can do. It would be interesting to see if they're right. Mike Laris Transportation reporter at the Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining us. They. took. UCSF pulled out the stops. I mean they cleared out an entire floor of their main medical campus in San Francisco thirty one beds. They reopened a facility to. Fifty three ovid cases of. Now Jim Carlton Reporter for The Wall Street Journal and San Francisco. Thanks for joining US Jim. How're you doin' Day Oscar. I'm doing well, thank you. WanNa talk about the preparation that that a lot of hospitals went into to prepare for corona virus cases early on, we were looking at other examples, such as China and Italy Italy, especially was so overwhelmed by cove nineteen, and there was legitimate fears here in the United States at that could happen. Happen here so hospitals went into overboard to prepare a lot of those cases never really bore out. You know in some hot spots like new. York or Louisiana. They did have huge influxes, but in other places we overprepared, and thankfully we didn't need to use all those resources Jim you wrote a lot about San, Francisco. The University of San Francisco in particular, and their preparations are cases. That never really came. Tell us a little bit about that. Make a good point that I mean I think that this is a case of most of the country Kinda overprepared, and there were exceptions New York I think overwhelmed, but mostly I think hospitals had the resources and San Francisco, so the University of California San Francisco Ucsf was one of the key medical institutions. There's going to be facing with autism. An onslaught I mean. We're on the West Coast, a lot of Chinese airline Chinese flights. Flights so really the predictions were that San. Francisco is going to be overwhelmed and so UCSF pulled out the stops I mean. They cleared out an entire floor of their main medical campus in San.

"Most of south. America's cases are in Brazil, which is part of the reason, if not the reason why south, America has just exploded in having the WHO even say it is now one of the world's epicenter, joining us now is Alex Ward reporter at Vox and Co host of the worldly podcast. Thanks for joining. US ALEX! Happy to be here wanted to talk about where the current corona virus epicenter seems to be. Obviously, the United States has the most cases in the world but south. America is quickly rising with the number of cases they have Brazil. As a matter of fact is number two in the world with the largest number of confirmed cases currently, and there's what happened in China. What happened in America? Everybody suspects that it's actually worse than it is. Because lack of testing the healthcare systems are being overloaded so Alex tell us a little bit about how South America has become this new corona virus epicenter. While the stories somewhat begins and ends with Brazil there. President Gerbil scenario has refused to take on the crisis calling it. A little flew himself, going outside and hanging out with supporters who are protesting lockdowns and promoting hydroxy caloric wind is some sort of cure for the disease, although there is no evidence to support that, in fact, there's a lot to say that it could be dangerous, so while some regional leaders governors etc are trying to fight the disease. That's just not happening in part because the president is unwilling to put the nation's resources behind solving it so most of South America's cases. Cases are in Brazil, which is part of the reason, if not the reason why South America has just exploded. You having the WHO even say it is now one of the world's epicenters that said there are other cases happening elsewhere, but when we're really talking about South America's growth as a corona virus hotspot really is because of Brazil through, and she are other big countries in South America that are starting to see a lot of cases. Let's focus on Brazil a little bit more I have. They implemented any type of social distancing measures nationwide, or is that a lot of this stuff just? Just being done on the state and local level, it's really mostly down to state and local level. I mean Bolsonaro himself is not really willing to do a national program. Let's say part of the political crisis that he is star in Brazil is that governors and mayors WANNA impose lockdowns than they are imposing lockdowns and some of the biggest places in the country Rio de Janeiro. Sao Paulo Ulsan Artisan WanNa do that, so this is leading him to fight with his own political leader, some of which are in his own party, and for some of these are experts, saying this, there's some experts. Experts claiming that Wilson are doing this in part to claim more political power for himself that he's trying to use the corona virus to gain more influence in the executives to minimize the power of other leaders, and that seems to be backfiring, because hundreds of thousands are getting infected tens of thousands of dying, and it's just no end in sight for that crisis. Some of these South American countries are very poor and they're very food poor. There's not enough to go around so Brazil Peru Sheila. Lot of people are having to break their quarantines or get out into the public markets crowded public. Because, they need to buy food. I think it's undoubtedly true that lockdowns and testing and tracing these are the things that are prescribed and are the best practices you have, but the more you're looking at cases in South America and even parts of Africa. What we're finding is that lockdowns are kind of a rich nations day. It's really hard for countries that have a high levels of poverty, high levels of people in the informal sector. These are folks that aren't on tax rolls. They are musicians. Artists are street or May. May Be these kinds of folks aren't able to purchase food and store it for long periods of time. They need to go outside for work. They need to go outside to get food to consume day of and you are seeing example after example in places like ru and Chile, wherever it could be I mean heartbreaking testimony from people where they're saying basically have to choose between social distancing or getting booed from my family, and some even said explicitly like by go outside the corona. Corona virus is a possibility, but if I don't go outside and get food, starving certainty, and so this is the kind of choice now that people have to make in areas like South America, and it's part of the reason why social distancing and lockdowns, and all these other kinds of measures which have worked with varying degrees of success elsewhere or just not really working in that part of the world, interesting statistic from the twenty seventeen cents is out of Peru or nine percent of. Of homes don't own a freezer basically, so you mentioned people having to go out and have to purchase day of food. They have to get their food every day at these local markets and yeah, they're braving the large crowds to do so in that case. What do we know about? The healthcare systems in the South American countries, because obviously that is one of the big things getting overloaded, too many patients not enough support to go round there. Would we know about their healthcare systems? Differ depending on the country, but by and large. It's just not great. You know there aren't that many ice you beds testing in tracing capabilities minimal. The amount of doctors available for patients are low in. You know there are tons of people who were saying. Poverty is quite widespread in south, America. It's hard to people to pay for services, and so there's great inequality in terms of hospitals or medical centers in impoverished areas as they are while there are some better ones in more urban centers in richer areas and so. So. This is part of the problem. Is that as more people get sick? The ability for people to go get care is just gonNa be really hard or even good care is going to be hard and the other issue here it's America's now entering its winter right here in the United States, we are heading into summer, but the southern hemisphere is heading into winter, and that gets the flu season, and this adds to the bunch of problems that the region already has with certain disease den gauge it can at Cetera. Flu and then, of course, the coronavirus it's only overwhelm already taxed and underfunded and under-resourced medical centers down the line just is not looking like a good situation to the point. Dive experts telling me they're expecting a major collapse of South America's healthcare systems over the next few months. Alex Ward reporter at Vox and Co host of the worldly podcast.

But what is really surprised me? Is that even in the district of real which voted really heavily. Also now to even hear I can hear. The people of Brazil may be confined to their homes as we are here but that's not stopping them from turning up to protest as the Guardians. Latin America correspondent. Tom Phillips can hear from his window in Rio de Janeiro. The anger of the country's president is getting louder. Jay Leno Reyes flagrant disregard for lockdown. Meshes LAID DOWN BY STATE? Governors comes as the number of covert cases. Continue to rise and South America. It's not just Brazil that is grappling with the scale of this virus. We seem to be a few weeks behind Europe. Here and South American governments had the benefit of a few weeks to try and get these lockdowns in place because of what they see coming their way but even so I think the next few weeks look look good from the Guardian. I'm initially Astana today. Infocus Kovic continued spread into South America. Tom You'll currently in Rio. Why you that so I was on holiday with my family. My wife is president and we were visiting her parents in Rio with our son. When this all began in early March and now ninety percent of flights have been cancelled in South America and we are unable to get damages have been imposed in the city so most Brazilian states. Brio site is one of them are now under sort of partial lockdown. Which means that. The governor here in Rio is asking people not to go outside and it's absolutely necessary. Certain not to go to the beach. Only keep workers are allowed out. There is now a requirement by the match US mosques and the borders are closed. So you can't drive to Sao Paulo all Bellagio nearby cities anymore. As we head people are still finding ways to protest against Bolsonaro. What are they getting angry about? The immediate drive of the protests. That has been his pretty astonishing reaction. Sukkur on a virus and its arrival in Brazil. Ever since the end of February when the first case was detected here he has repeatedly tried to downplay corona viruses threats and undermine guidelines put in place by his health ministry is described his media hysteria as a political trick is called on a virus genome a bit of a cold. Despite his health ministries recommendation Mattie isolate himself after being exposed to infected officials president joyous scenario fist-bump and took self fees at a rally on Sunday in mid March. When most cities starts going lockdown he started egging on and actually attended anti congressional protests in Brasilia outside his palace one Brazilian newspaper. The calculated are. He'd been mingling fist bumping with the crowd the both not had direct contact with two hundred seventy two different people had handled at one hundred twenty eight mobile phones that were given to him by people in the crowd to try and take selfies and also in the background is the fact that many of his top officials went to monologue were in in Florida to meet with Donald Trump. In early March. We had dinner together and Florida with the entire delegation. We sat next to each other for a period of time had a great conversation and subsequently more people on delegation including some really really big figures in the Brazilian government have tested positive for covert both refused on refuses to this day to publish his results. So there is a suspicion amongst many Brazilians. We don't know whether there's a basis for it that ball's not a boss at some point actually infected with the virus and it still has been out mingling socially directly putting Brazilian lives at risk. So he basically may have immunity and is encouraging other people to take the risk of coming out. That's what a lot of people think. Did he disappear from via after that trap don't think he disappeared from lots of people are social media to photograph him coughing during his facebook? Lives and Sunday again. He was out and he was spluttering relating. I mean who knows what we do know. Is that Brazil's lower house has given him a thirty day deadline to produce those test results either way. His reaction to this has made people really really angry. Because I think it is undermining the health ministry's efforts to try and control something that could potentially be devastating for Brazil. He's the president. Why is it that? He doesn't have the power to ease the lockdown if he doesn't agree with that so what we have seen over the last few weeks is not something. We've seen in decades of Brazilian politics a remarkable rebellion by the governors of Brazil's twenty seven states so nearly all of them have decided to introduce social listening saying isolation. What they're calling Dana closing their borders closing businesses closing shopping centers. That they're doing that and frankly a lot of balls Nada can do about it. It's not clear to me whether he actually wants to do away with these lockdowns but he certainly wants to be seen to be opposing them because his stick at the moment is to present himself. As a champion of Brazil's impoverished workers who is trying to get the economy working because obviously even before the viruses cools the massive public health crisis. Which we think is coming. It is having a massive economic impact on Brazil and other parts of Latin America. The other way to help they today massive economic measures so they doing them in Brazil so after after much kicking screaming and pushing.

Braves Ralph Nader are very much are there any door string of Palestinian people and they relate to American Indian nations well I see okay I think I got so the people who are anti Israel Israel so to speak came into into the Middle East the Jews came to the Middle East and uprooted the indigenous people and that just as the Americans approve of the indigenous people I think that that's what he's saying this is the this is the argument so first of all the indigenous people to that area through through the Middle East there were Jews Jews preceded the existence of of Muslims a bar a let's see to twenty six hundred years it would be twelve twelve eighteen hundred years eighteen hundred years of the being a the exodus twelve hundred BC knows Abraham would go back to sixteen hundred BC so sixteen hundred so twenty two hundred years all right so for anybody uprooted anybody you could argue that it was the most loans invading the Middle East who from Arabia who uprooted the Jews are the Romans had approved the Jews even before that so these these arguments are are preposterous the the point is when person says two hundred and twelve countries have the right to exist except one the size of New Jersey which happens to be Jewish and it's the only Jewish country Jews have a right to regard that person is it as their enemy with that ram types of medic in their heart or not is irrelevant but it is a relevant question why if all the countries of the earth is only the Jewish one illegitimate in your rice that's a that's a legitimate question there was a twenty two Arab countries I don't remember the number eighteen other the one Jewish one has the right fifty six Muslim countries but one Jewish can't exist okay thank you for that I got a video on that Prager you fear interested and let's see take a general question Dave in Milwaukee high hello yep hi there yeah yeah yeah my question not talking about our obligations for happiness I'm generally a happy person and I know that obligation at home and I try to carry it with me I'm not I'm a Christian and I like to share the gospel with people and I like to help people but I'm all of them about specifically smoking cigars with friends from other people people put up a front eleven million sites and through hard to discern when people are hurting and you need to go deeper what it because it's all right yes I don't right up it's a very very important question I I eat this is my method I ask people questions and if they if they don't want to answer they have a perfect right to say you know I just want to go there and then you know that you you can't go there obviously but I I don't stop with how are you if I if I actually want a conversation a real conversation hi I will just proceed so you know how are your kids and you know make a generalized statement so for example you're obviously conservative and religious guy so you might want to say you know I was reading the other day or heard on the radio the other day half half of the people who are a conservative their kids turn out the on the left how's it been with your kids in this regard that's that's a real question that that opens up there's no front there they could say I'd rather not talk about it in my life I've never had that answer people people do like to talk about themselves and open up if they trust you and if you do it if you do it effectively that's what I do I ask questions that into you yeah it helps a lot because there's such a lot so much pain out there that's right that's exactly correct you know my phrase if paper water the world would drown that is exactly right look you folks open up to me on the radio with a with a with millions listening so obviously you're anonymous I get that but still sitting around with the cigar or a beer or playing cards or whatever I think it's it I think people can be opened up and should be we'll be back I'm Dennis Prager the Dennis Prager show live from the relief actor pain free studio hi this is Dennis Prager the longer I live the more I realize that many people a lot of people really over forty or fifty have aches and pains but can start affecting the way they live the way they sleep or get around you know what I'm talking about Pete and Jeff Talbott the owners of relief factor created this one hundred percent drug free supplement to help people like me my wife just about everybody I know with low back pain.
