Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears

"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical

BlackRocks Larry Fink; Johnson & Johnsons Vaccine Study

"Johnson and Johnson is temporarily paused. It's cove nineteen vaccine clinical trials due to an unexplained illness in a study participant the development first reported by stat news notes that the study is not under a clinical hold that's the more serious hold and it's not immediately apparent whether the volunteer received the actual treatment. Or a placebo. That would be key difference J. J. says adverse events. Events like illnesses aren't expected part of clinical studies but if they do find out, yeah, it was the placebo. Well then. It goes without saying. Apparently. It's not always immediately available for that but I read through that a lot because it it seems to me like you'd be able to figure out pretty quickly it to shutting down your entire thing if this was somebody who got the placebo. That's why it's called the blind, a double blind study or whatever you want people knowing who? Didn't. I guess somebody knows I hope so or else you get. Jeez. Yeah. Wow maybe. Striking, about this, this is now the second one of these that we've had AstraZeneca's you know put a hold of briefly internationally on their efforts but by the way that effort I believe is not ongoing right now in the United States. So if for example, there was a hold on the Astra Zeneca project in the United States and they separate hold now on the Johnson and Johnson one minute. It's not this is not a whole. Holistic. Pause. Right. A pause, but there was a I the point I was trying to make was there was a pause if you WANNA use the word pause and hold I know there now there's a distinction between the two, but there was also a pause on the Astra Zeneca program in the United States if they're also pause on the Johnson and Johnson Program in the United. States then you're then you're now down to Pfizer and Madonna as the most promising. The only other two that are even ongoing when you think about the time line for when these things become available, it could become more challenged. I I would. I would wait until. You know. That's not like you to find the negative part of it, but I mean I. Came back. It's not I hadn't realized I. Don't know if you want. I not. Not a spinal thing like the other one I understand that. Thousands of people in all these trials and you're talking about two cases that you don't even know we're going to result in Holt. So it made push it out to ask what if the dates maybe bad possibly, what possible what have you imagined that would have you imagined that the Astra Zeneca program would be running everywhere else in the in the world except the United States right now I I haven't thought realized that tried to mad and haven't tried Ed Needs is this means it's going to be the Astra Zeneca program to become available here at the United States in any kind of similar time. That's the point. For more on the news from Johnson and Johnson. Let's bring in Dr Zeke Emanuel. He of course, the former White House health policy advisor under President Obama he's now vice provost of global initiatives at the university, of Pennsylvania, and he's currently an informal adviser to the Joe Biden campaign and the Covid nineteen and Vaccine Recommendations. By the way he just co authored a research letter for the Journal of the American Medical Association comparing us, covert fatalities to those of some larger OECD countries to talk about that in just a moment. But Dr Manual let's start with this news from J. and J. Does this concern you? Well, any time? There's a serious adverse event it has to concern you but I think as. J. F. O. explained. You know you have to let the process evolve you have to actually examine carefully what the? Situation is the adverse event is related to the vaccine or placebo. Related to something else a pre existing condition, and so those are exactly the kind of questions at. Researchers will look at and try to uncover in the next few hours. And then we'll find out more. If it's in the you know arm with of the vaccine it does raise serious questions because you only have a few thousand people in the study like this one adverse event is serious especially when you're considering a vaccine that you're going to roll out to tens, hundreds of millions of people maybe even billions of people. So you know. That's the that's the ultimate concern, and this is actually standard process. For every research study you get a serious adverse event, you investigate it, it happens all the time. It's just the world's not always watching. So closely to see what the developers are excited worth pointing out that the the CFO of Johnson and Johnson also pointed out, they don't know any of these answers because they have turned it all over to independent investigators, and that is what kind of beefs up the credibility issues around those. The CFO himself has no idea even though this was thirty six hours ago whether this was in a placebo patients someone who actually received the vaccine will continue. That they've been carefully collaborating with the NIH on this trial and you know that I also think should give the American public. Some reassurance at this is going to be done thoroughly and to the highest scientific standards might detrimental. Let's talk about that paper that you wrote. You found that the United States did have higher death rates from Cova. I think the big question is was that something that was taking place very early on in the pandemic and that has improved since then and what have you found? Tell us a little bit about your study. So what we did is to take the United States mortality from it. Compare it to eighteen. Countries a high income countries like Japan and Australia Canada and Jeremy and also the countries that were hit very hard at the start Italy Spain, France and other. European countries. And we looked at the whole period and compared to most countries We actually the United States has done poorly even if you include the early phase but if you exclude the early phase March and April when every many countries were overwhelmed especially places like Italy and Spain. And you exclude them and then look say may after countries have experienced, got their arms around how to manage this of virus. I turns out the United States at extraordinarily bad even compared to places like Italy a we had from. May Tenth. To today roughly ninety thousand more deaths and we should have had we followed Italy scores ninety thousand Americans who died needlessly. As I have pointed out before Italy didn't have anything special or different in terms of Treatment Vaccines Diagnostics compared to the United States, what they have is better public health. Implementation of the public health measures, and that actually is a could could have saved tens of thousands of lives in the United States. and. We can see that when we compare our experience to those of other countries. What are you talking about in terms of reactions? You mean people wearing masks, you mean contact tracing do you mean testing that's put out? How much this you think falls on the healthcare system. As a fault and how much of it rely falls on public policy reaction to it. How much falls on just citizens following the rules well. It's all of it, but it's mainly the public health response in public policy. It really is implementing those public health measures, countrywide with fidelity. And then slowly reopening. So you do have to have social distancing you do have to have a trying not to go indoors. You do have to have having crowds less than twenty. You do have to have wearing face masks doing hand hygiene and focusing your testing and contact tracing capacity first of all, building it up, which we never did successfully in this country, and then focusing it on hot spots because we know this virus breaks out. A super spreading events it's not the usual person to person to person you know eighty to ninety percent of people will not pass this to anyone. Ten percent to twenty percent of people 'cause eighty percent of the infection. So you have to be able to identify them and quickly suppressed that we never built up that capacity the federal government under president trump punted it to the states and then states did very different. Things had Florida right now as rapidly opened up restaurants and many other things and a lot of us are expecting super spreading situations in Florida. We've seen. Places that kind of ignored? This up and down the Midwest saying Oh it's not here. Now having very high rates of cases we've had thirty one states that are going up and not down which is a very worrisome situation going into the fall and we're going to move inside. It's going to much easier to pass this virus along. And a lot of us are seriously worried about the consequences hazy I'm trying to do whether that was apples to apple. So when in May in the United. States. We got we got a later start right in Europe and by May they're already seeing. Progress over in Europe did you adjust I'm not sure whether you adjusted for that because we were right at the height. Close to it in May still and and they were on the downside in. Europe is. Standardized that in a way or wrong on that or or because we were going to have a lot more. A lot more deaths in in May than they would because they they were they got it a lot earlier there. Then I have a follow up question to. That is a super sophisticated question and you're one hundred percent, right we started a week or two later than European countries like Italy France But if you make that adjustment, it makes a slight difference not. Difference Yeah. So it's not it's not. Our peak was in May and their peak was in the end of March early April. In fact, our peak was earlier in April. and. By, by May tenth, we should have gotten our arms around and then also in our paper, we look at June seven and subsequently, and even if you look at June seven, we have tens of thousands of more debts that other countries like again the Netherlands France Spain. Italy. So we've done poorly, and by the way our data collection goes through mid September. So we've done poorly even with the August blip because of the. Spring summer vacations in many European countries where we know people like Silvio Berlusconi in Italy partied and ignored all the recommendations and got cove it So we have done badly even after even if you include the fact that we got this about a week or two later compared to other countries that was a very good question typically on the high level statisticians or clinical researchers ask that kind of. I don't with. Feeling so good about myself. All of a sudden the problems we've had here the number of cases the number of that's a number of hospitalizations was not inevitable. It was a result of bad public health measures being implemented or not implemented as the case may be and you can see this repeatedly states seeming seeming to learn nothing like Florida rushing to open up restaurants bars when we should be slowly slowly be opening. Detrimental very quickly. It I guess we do have time for one more question how how much of an impact do you think a Americans healthiness versus other countries have how do we rate just in terms of underlying co morbidity is that might be there well, it's a mixed bag for one thing our population skews younger than most European countries, they have a much older population more people over sixty five. And we know that older people tend to die from this disease unfortunately we have more co morbidity in terms of diabetes in terms of obesity, but they have more Komo British in terms of lung problems because they have higher smoking rates in the United States Net Nan. It probably comes out in the wash but we're going to have to do some more. Rigorous Studies of the CO morbidity situation and the age distribution of the population. But I don't think it's GonNa be tens of thousands of deaths. It might be a few thousand maybe even ten thousand but the overwhelming response effect that about half of our deaths or unnecessary that's not gonNA come out because of small differences in co morbidity between our countries and their country. Zeke thank you very much for your time. It's really great talking to you. Thank you very sophisticated questions this morning.

"What's called next generation EU re Germany basically made A.

"The party pooper. But with Karuna, virus cases rising in England, the government may have little choice. The Evening Standard reports a cabinet discussing new social gathering measures will see the number of people allowed to meet cut from thirty to possibly as few as six police would be given powers to break up the celebrations and there are fines of up to one hundred pounds being planned. It's all expected to be announced within days. editorial column says Decisive Action That's well communicated is needed. We report today that illegal ban on gatherings of more than six people is being discussed by the cabinet. But formerly in public, we hear little about what might happen next or what is being done to prepare for it. Of course, no official minister can be certain about what's next but nation on the brink of an anxious autumn deserves an explanation of the possibilities and how we would respond people and businesses deserve a lot better than rumors and threats of drastic action. If things get worse if the PM doesn't know the answers, let's at least hear that from him fear and uncertainty of the biggest threats to the confidence we need to find. UPLOADED GLADYS JOE. Is here Joe Why is the government looking at this? They are looking at data that's come from the joint by security. Center. And it's not good at showing three thousand cases Dave virtually. but also looking at the date of the win through France and Spain France and Spain had a big rising cases mainly among young people and what's happened there is a few weeks. Later, you've seen an increase in hospitalization. So getting his young people perhaps being a little bit blase about the rules, passing it to more vulnerable and older people who were them becoming seriously ill now, Boris Johnson cabinet this morning spelled it out to the cabinet saying we must not allow complacency including among young people. and. So the upshot is is that there's a chance that the promise to hold all of those number ten press conferences tomorrow to be the first one since the before the summer recess. And if he does my guess is he'll be announcing formerly that it will be against the law school to have a party of somewhere between six and thirty people against the low. But how will that be enforced while the significance of changing a little is that it will suddenly become a police matter if you've got say a dozen people having a gathering in your house. Now, the moment there's a curious situation because the guidance on social distancing is different to what the law says. So for example, the guidance is that you can have up to six people from different households in your garden, but not in Dole's you can have. Two households in your house but they can't be too big. But what the law says is the police can intervene if you've got over thirty people in your garden. or in your house and. They will then be able to fines of up to one hundred pounds, which then go up promotes the leave you don't pay. That would be leveled against organizers of parties maybe against people who were there who refuse to go? So the change in the numbers making a legal threshold of, for example, six is is being discussed today, but it may not that may not be the final number a decision has been taken. But once you say six, for example, then the police would have the power to go in break up the party. And crackdown on those who organized it. So this is clearly being aimed at younger people. Is there an urgency because things like colleges and universities are going back and traditionally as all the parties at that time is no Joe freshers week is coming up anywhere. We like freshers week in the past is going to be a lot of is going to be gatherings at Stephen, houses and halls of residence. and of course, the students going back will be a million people moving around. It's GonNa be one of the biggest regional movements of people since lockdown itself so. People young people are out doubt. Breaching, social distance more than older people it was reported the government reckons it's people who are better off young people who better off who probably the worst offenders, and that's as a matter of urgency because this is going to come to a head in these leaks coming up.

Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?

"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

Brazil has recorded more than 360,000 COVID-19 cases

"Brazil now has more than three hundred and sixty thousand cases following a surge there in recent weeks and let's bring in Jason Beaubien whose NPR's global health and development correspondent hi Jason Hey good morning David so let's talk about this new travel restrictions from the White House what what what is it what is the deal with their surprise boasts Brazilians and any non US this into print in Brazil over the last fourteen days to Americans who were still there are allowed to come back up but was it was being added to this earlier list of travel bans you remember you know we still have bans in place against China Iran nearly thirty European countries a we still have nonessential travel between Canada and Mexico is banned so there's a lot of talk about re opening the U. S. but there isn't really movement in terms of re opening international travel in fact just Brazil band shows that we're moving in the other direction well besides Brazil I mean what where we looking in terms of hot spots around the world at this point so parts of Latin America are really getting hit hard in addition to Brazil you got approved Chile Colombia and Mexico they're all seeing surges in cases to other places where Kobe is really taking off right now are Russia and India Russia actually has the third highest number of cases behind the U. S. and Brazil and India is a concern given its huge population was crowded cities the potential for a respiratory virus like this to really take off there so there's a lot of concern in India as well I mean all is relative of course but there are places where things are going relatively well right yeah that's true you know how to serve it to categories of doing well you've got places like New Zealand Hong Kong Taiwan where they have brought transmission down to essentially zero and they are just dealing with imported cases from people who come from outside their own borders and then you've got countries like Italy Spain France where they are still dealing with a few hundred cases date come from having a large outbreaks but the trend line is very much in the right direction and support to note that this isn't just some automatic things viruses or burns out after a certain period of time you look at the U. K. their outbreak started a little bit behind mainland Europe but they haven't seen that sharp downward trend in cases sort of plateaued at a few thousand new cases a day they're still really struggling

"Laurie welcome to coast to coast AM later tonight you know we're champion to save the bread that's what we'll be talking about you think this situation is tense right now with the corona virus and in the grid going down what a mess it would be well we're going to get that fixed says what's happening president trump said that he's instructed the U. S. navy to shoot down and destroy any Iranian gunboats harassing American ships in the wake of a tense encounter in the Persian Gulf the encounter happened last week by the way six US navy warships we're conducting drills with the U. S. army Apache attack helicopters in international waters off of around when they were repeatedly harassed by eleven Iranian Islamic revolutionary guard navy vessels according to the U. S. navy's fifth fleet the Iranian ships reportedly crossed in front and behind the U. S. vessels at extremely close range the president is saying no no no no no a top U. S. general has said that he assumes that Kim John on is still in full control of north Korea's nuke and military forces amid reports that the regime's leaders facing serious health issues after surgery nobody really knows what's going on over there two cats have tested positive for corona virus in New York making them the first pets to be infected in the United States that we know of the centers for disease control and prevention said the cats had mild respiratory illnesses and they are expected to recover as a corona virus spread through New York City in late March doctors at Mount Sinai hospital noticed something very strange happening the patient's blood signs of blood thickening and Claudine were being detected in different organs by doctors from different specialities this would turn out to be one of the alarming ways the virus ravages the body as doctors there and elsewhere were starting to realize interesting let's check in with Howard bloom and get his take this week on the coronavirus situation Howard what everyone covered today well first let's look at the state of play in our war with the coronavirus the president's daily briefings on the go ahead for the governor's open their states for business gives a reassuring sense that we are on top of things that we are not the corona viruses on top of us a number of cases is rapidly rising toward a million we have as many cases of the coronaviruses Spain Italy France Germany and England combined or Ingram on fox TV says we should treat the coronavirus the way we treat the ordinary flu we should not shut down our economy we had more deaths in two months from the coronavirus we get from the common flu in a year meanwhile six governors are forming a coalition to reopen their commercial establishments including the Sarge therapy operations set to parlors and barber shops all places where you have to toss away social distancing and force let other people touch you from the eagerness of the six governors from the president's press briefings and from the demonstrations of those who want to liberate their St from democratic governors and from house arrest you get the impression that the curve of the coronaviruses flattened and it hasn't the curve is rising slowly in Italy Spain France and Germany but here in the USA it's taking off like a rocket in other words of all the advanced nations we have been the least effective at cornering and corralling this virus the result is that the coronaviruses killing relatively young people like forty two year old Mary Lou armour a police detective in Santa Rosa California or Natasha I'm a healthy thirty nine year old social worker in New Orleans who died days after she was turned down for corona virus test because she was told she was low risk meanwhile the anti lock down protesters like the ones in Lansing Michigan on April fifteenth the call for locking up democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer also talk about something called herd immunity and the best argument for herd immunity comes from conservative intellectual and historian Victor Davis Hanson an article we published in the National Review three weeks ago Hansen outlined what he called the California paradox California has the biggest population of any state in the union forty million people and that forty million is more exposed to China than the citizens of any other state most trainees to fly to the USA landing California and LA is the favorite Chinese tourist destination in the USA yeah when Hansen was writing in March California had only had a hundred and forty deaths from the coronavirus and today California only has one thousand two hundred sixty eight deaths at one tenth of the fourteen thousand eight hundred and twenty eight deaths in New York state one tenth is that because a lockdown Hanson says probably not the California was one of the earliest states the lockdown so how does he have to explain the small number of deaths in California he imagines that the corona virus actually came to California in October not me official date of January then he imagines that many of the people killed by the corona virus or misdiagnosed as having ammonia or what's called a type B. flu if the coronavirus did hit in the fall of two thousand and nineteen he imagines he killed those susceptible to it and left those who had mild symptoms or no symptoms at all with immunity that's the herd immunity that the protesters talk about cancer theory have important policy implications it says and your locked out let the virus killed whoever it wants the rest of us will have a new unity there are a lot of flaws in this argument but the biggest one is that one of the people killed in order to train the immune system of the herd may be you or me bottom line though Howard is we gotta ventrally get this country back running again or it's going to be worse so let's see what happens we'll check in with you later helpless experts and officials are urging people to stay calm during this pandemic to try meditating exercising or learning a new skill to name a few people know what to do but the question is why they should do it a relationship exists between chronic disease and anxiety the more one worries the more likely a person will develop a chronic condition at the same time a chronic condition induces anxiety and as we reported yesterday people are taking anxiety drugs at a record setting pace Dr Peter Bregman our resident psychiatrist and author of medication bad this is with us right now Peter this is a rough situation isn't it yeah George but am being vastly exaggerated by one after another interest group you know there was an art one of the articles thank you sent me said corona viruses do things ID can be just as damaging as the virus no chance George well when we talk about anxiety causing multiple deaths it's it's speculation it's fear mongering there's been studies that decade the doctor still can't make up their minds about how much emotional problems are gonna cause physical disease we know physical disease causes emotional problems I'm so glad you brought up yesterday the psychiatric drugs because I think far more dangerous than anxiety to help affecting notice are the psychiatric drugs after the pencils right the vendor that has the pain Jones and ex on a and the any well and but also the anti depressants we give to patients for anxiety now a doctor can prescribe you almost anything under the sun anxiety but it's gonna be in neurotoxins are going to be good for your brain you're much better off you know starting out thinking if you're anxious that you gotta get some help that the get some alternative treatments are acupuncture exercise is the credibility good eating much more vegetables incredibly good the main thing is not to get caught up in this the whipping up of anxiety by the media is are you agree it's something we've been saying Peter since the beginning of this entire episode just not to get caught up in the history and that's what's happening absolutely judge I want wanna take just that quick that time just because I just spent the day with my wife ginger writing a a blog and doing a video because as a part of this fear mongering there's been a blitz in the media just today that quote the group trump's medication which is the hydroxy Clore Quinn he's been promoting is causing more deaths the the van expected was causing lots of deaths and I actually got a whole the article and we did a video on it today don my used to end up and if you look at the article which is very cordially a garbage article you can still find that there's evidence that taking hydroxy Clark when actually helps the disorder help should we cover from it it's just very bad what's going on out there it's not easy we've got a fight at Peter your website Brendan B. R. E. G. G. I. N. dot com it's part of our Twitter feed coast to coast AM dot com thank you Peter millions of people started receiving their emergency stimulus checks last week but apparently it's just the start according to a new survey eighty four percent of the Americans would already like to receive another round of government help as the corona pine to pandemic continues and of course you've got to get back to work Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman says that she has called for the city's businesses to re open while refusing to provide any social distancing guidelines on how to do so safely she says that's up to the companies to decide apple is planning to fix a flaw that a security firm said may have left more than a half a billion iPhones vulnerable to hackers how about that in a moment the heavenly matchmaker the secret science of the mind body and heart and the soul with Maurice coverall on coast to coast A.

Coronavirus: When Will It End?

"In the US? We've been hearing all kinds of different dates at first president. Trump was saying that we could be back to business as usual by mid April. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go bicester and it was clear that wasn't happening. We will be extending our guidelines to April thirtieth since then all sorts of dates have been flying around they forbid may at the earliest one way is extending its shutdown to June seventh and some politicians. Just throwing their hands in the air. Everybody wants to know one thing. When is it over? Nobody knows that outside the US. We're hearing that. Some places are the end of this like just this week. Wuhan the epicenter of this outbreak lifted their heavy restrictions. Tonight seventy six days later Wuhan ends. This look down around. Sixty five thousand. People have left Wuhan on trains and planes within hours of that lockdown ending residents of finally free to do that. Move simple things the streets once more on. Today's show is China really done with this corona virus. And what does this mean for the rest of us? How long could it be until we get our lives back to help sort through these questions we? I called up Dr Swap Nil Michele at Imperial College London and he told us well one of the tough things here is that a lot of countries like the. Us Cut a light stop. It has become very difficult to contain it now right. It's almost like every country. It was old. None of this should be fine. We should be. They should be fine but then suddenly after two week everybody or should we are not in a good state to find out if we can get into a good state swap null and his colleagues a building models based around what we know about this pandemic and these models are reaching high places where it is. The Boris Johnson started taking this pandemic seriously once he saw a model from swap mills. Colleagues showing. How many Britons would die if the country didn't take measures to stop it. How did you feel when Boris Johnson took the model of you know of your colleagues and that was what inspired him to change? Refilled ridiculed? The was the first thing and refund tangled. At least they have agreed to us now. And you'll have something that might help us to literally save people so we've been vindicated. Recently swap nells team started looking at whether the measures that countries are taking to stop this corona virus. All these social distancing is actually working and putting us on the pop out of this. They created a model which looked at how quickly this virus is spreading and the death rate and then they looked at eleven European countries places like Italy Spain France and Germany. They then created a couple of scenarios one. What if these countries had done nothing business usual and then to what actually happened off debates social distanced? So what did they find? It was very much evident that the steps like social distancing Stopping schools having a lockdown has helped to control Perriman. It flattened the cat yes. It has quite undergo so for example. According to swap knows model by starting these measures in mid March Italy averted almost forty thousand deaths by the end of that month. The model also calculated that social distancing save lives in all the countries to now. This is a model but evidence from the real world is starting to show something similar just this week. The World Health Organization in Europe said that they're noticing these trends countries that put in strong restrictive measures like Germany and Spain. The seeing drops in the rate of cases and deaths compare that would say Sweden who've been more lax. They're now seeing a fresh surge of cases so on the whole the countries that have done lockdowns flooding. The governor is happening but we still need some bank. How much more time? When does life go back to normal? So when will it end is is literally a question that we really don't have much idea on right now so you had to bet like me and my friends. We will all guessing when we thought we would go back to our normal lives. What what do you think so this is just what I think we might have to be under a lot of measures at least up till June Gin. At least at at least right it does not at most at least right okay. So if we don't really know when this will end what are the clues we should be looking for to know that we're heading out of the woods friends over at the general podcast talked. Dr Anthony Fauci. He's part of the Corona virus taskforce advising the president even know who he is anyway. Edry says that we need to start looking for a drop in the numbers. You have to see a really steep decline on a day by day basis. But you don't WanNa see a little sore tooth up and down up and down. That looks like it might be trending down. It's not like it's trending down. It's got a light steep going down. And when you see that then you could start thinking about that but you gotTa make sure you're absolutely going in the right direction. When Anthony Talks about numbers going down he's talking about new cases now. That can't tell you the whole story though because testing in America has been so higgledy-piggledy that it's really hard to know if we're capturing all the people who just got infected so there's other clues that we can look at to save almost out of this like you can look at hospitalizations or the death rate. Now Anthony says something to keep in mind with the death rate is that there's a two to three week lag between someone getting sick and then dying so are the last thing that stop when the deaths stop. Then you know you're in good shape in Wuhan new cases and deaths had been dropping consistently for about five weeks before China lifted the restrictions over here in the US. It's early days and in many states cases and deaths are still on the rise but he is a promising sign in New York. The Governor says that hospitalizations slowing down. Okay so once we have more good signs like this and you infections and debts are definitely going down. We might see things. Stop to open up but Anthony told the journal. That won't mean that life will go back to normal right now. It's all physical separation. Six feet distance. No restaurants no bars no sports events when you gradually come back you don't jump into it with both feet you say you know. What are the things that you could still do and still approach normal? One of them is absolute compulsive hand washing the other one. Is You don't ever shake anybody's hands. That's clear I could see in certain places people saying. Hey we're going to get back to normal but guess what we have a restaurant that has two hundred seats and that's too much as a big restaurant. Like big restaurants has fifty seats. We're going to only let twenty five people in at the same time. Anthony says we'll have to be on the lookout suitcases pumping back up. And that means we'll still have to keep outdistance or maybe we have to forget about basketball for a little while only played ping pong in our case. It's more than six feet apart. I can. He didn't suggest that one. But bottom line is it's going to be gradual. It's not going to be all

S. share indexes closed down more than three percent Asian markets continued the downward plunge joining us from Singapore a business correspondent Monica meta Monica what is the latest yeah if you're in the trading business these days you really need to have an iron stomach I've they're on shaky ground at this point everyone from the view looking from Japan all the way to Australia there have been masses dips in the market we're looking at the Nikkei which is down more than three percent the hang Seng lost with a two percent and the ASX two hundred in Australia was down almost two point five percent now as you mentioned the governments and central banks have been rolling out stimulus measures to try to stabilize these markets but they're not really seeing any end to this coronavirus in terms of how far it's going to spread or when we might see some sort of relief and it doesn't help when you have countries like South Korea and Japan arguing about safe quarantine measures with south responding to impose retaliate tree controls on Japan I mean Kanye what together yes I mean I think that's what the World Health Organization has been arguing and there's I think that's really also playing into the psyche of of traders investors these days because there isn't a confidence that the the world has a global response to this it's interesting because there have been fewer infections in China where this all started however there are concerns over how other countries are prepared to handle this and is it every sector that's being affected mainly travel tourism that sort of thing what we need to look at that the pipeline of how things are made that many factories for example in China has been closed I think were a lot of companies like apple was one of the first to come out to say that they were going to have to revise those figures for the quarter that it's coming up but boy if you look at the travel industry for example Australia's Qantas airlines dropped seven percent we're also looking at Japan's ANA holdings they fell almost four percent and we were talking about South Korea Korean airline stocks plummeted almost six percent so yeah all of these countries I think despite how they think they're handling it a really feeling the economic pinch Monica thank you Monica met our business correspondent in Singapore and does a Monaco's alluding to in a sign of just how

"We Cubans Mark Our holidays with glee cheer and often mouth watering desserts. Entered the New Orleans King. Cake the frosted coffee cake like sweet roll typically eaten between January sixth and fat Tuesday. Which is the day before lent begins? It's a staple of the Mardi gras season for those unfamiliar with this festive dessert. The New Orleans version is often made of rich Danish style dough braided and shaped into a large ring in often with one or a variety of fillings. Think cinnamon sugar chocolate. Raspberry preserves chopped sugar cons or sweetened. Cream cheese it's usually covered in a suite glazer frosting and decorated with Gold Green and purple sugar or icing and of course hidden somewhere within the tender layers of this frosted treat is a small plastic baby which sounds real weird if you're unfamiliar so let's back up a little. Because the origins of King cake go way back and yes. There are kings involved. Kim Cake derives from the holiday. Three Kings Day also called tiffany which is a Christian Feast Day celebrated on January sixth with the day after the Twelfth Day Christmas this holiday celebrates the Biblical Tale of the Three Kings Aka. Three wise men or madge by visiting the baby. Jesus it kicks off the Mardi Gras or carnival season which lasts until the first day of lent which is a moving holiday that falls forty days before Easter. Anyway the three kings are. Why can cakes are a seasonal treats in the shape of a crown or a more or less circular band anyway? Those three colors decorated with our symbolic purple for justice. Green for faith and gold for power and tradition holds that the plastic baby in the cake represents Jesus just as Jesus showed himself to the three wise men he will show himself to those enjoying king cake. Whoever finds the baby in there slice is crowned King or Queen for a day or hosts the next Mardi gras celebration or at least buys the cake next year? It's a lucky. Token other Tokens Coins. Peas. Pecans beans were what was up in the past and may still show up hundreds of thousands of king cakes or sold at New Orleans Mardi gras season. I couldn't track down a firm total but the big commercial bakeries ramp up to producing three thousand five hundred king cakes per day. Their busiest the Danish style dough is the most popular. But it's not the only kind either flakier or fluffier dough can sometimes be found and New Orleans isn't the only place to serve king cakes by far in northern France. You can find glut their Roy a flaky. Puff Pastry was sweet almond. Filling Bulgaria and Greece have similar dishes traditionally served around the New Year but the New Orleans. Pancake is closer to the Toda. Roy from southern France made with Brioche and the Rosca de raise from Spain a ring of sweet bread topped with icing and candied fruit. Which makes sense given these Spanish and southern French settlers and colonists who got the city started in the seventeen hundreds but Mardi gras and other carnival celebrations have roots. That go way back. People have been celebrating the end of winter and the return of longer warmer days up forever. Since the first brave human dared to celebrate ancient Babylonia may have held first Carnival Circuit Two thousand six hundred BC E. This was a festival that celebrated Mirth and change through satire by making a show of role reversals. There would be a parade through the streets. A pair of peasants would be royalty for the day and royalty would act like fools pranks played. Folks would wear costumes depicting social classes other than their own and everyone partied. Sound a little familiar. These traditions were incorporated into and or disseminated through Grecian and Roman cultural traditions. The first king cakes make all the way back ancient Rome. As part of the celebration of Saturnalia. A Winter Solstice and harvest festival a pastry would be baked with the fava bean hidden inside and the finder would be named king for the day. The tradition became a part of epiphany celebrations in the Middle Ages. The fava bean was sometimes replaced by porcelain token of a crowned head to take some of the pagan out of it. When Spain France spread their outposts to the Americas the king tradition came with them and took on a life of Zone particularly in New Orleans. The baby trinket didn't come along until a bakery called Mackenzie's came up with the idea in the nineteen fifties. At first these figures were made out of porcelain and baked inside the cake. But we're eventually replaced with plastic which comes alongside the cake due to concerns about baking plastic. These early cakes were more brioche like or pedals they like and didn't have filling. That didn't come around until the nineteen eighties as acres began adding more eggs and sugar to the recipes or straight up switching to Danish pastry recipes. An anecdotal tail puts the first commercial. Filled can cakes in New Orleans tonight. Eighty-three according to Baker Jones semen that year baked four filled cakes? Her husband took one to work and they got twenty five calls about filled cakes within thirty minutes through the nineteen eighties and nineties. Cajun and creole food became national trends and shipping technology improved as well allowing for more or less affordable overnight shipping then in two thousand four the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina honed New Orleans sense of community history and pride and both local and national hunger for these traditional dishes which means that celebrates have a veritable glut of kinky options today. Miniature king cakes can kick doughnuts. Can Kate Vodka can take bourbon? Milk Punch can kick smoothies and of course in a city that loves the party. A whole can cake festival held in late. January

Sepsis, the 'hidden killer,' may be responsible for 1 in 5 deaths worldwide, study shows

"Sepsis or blind poisoning kills more people than cancer according to a new study researchers from the university of Washington and Pittsburgh said accounts for one in five deaths a total of eleven million a year around the world more than doubled previous calculations however the number of cases has gone down over the past thirty years details my health and science correspondent James gonna sepsis is also known as the hidden killer and it's caused by the main system going into overdrive instead of just fighting an infection it starts attacking other parts of the body to sepsis can be fatal previous global estimates were based on just a handful of western countries this analysis published in the lancet is based on data from one hundred and ninety five nations it shows one in five deaths around the world is caused by sepsis dance around eleven million people a year the lead researcher assistant professor Christina road said that was twice the previous estimate I've seen this with my own eyes and my colleagues that are on the ground treating patients and low and middle income countries every day have been saying this for years that this is a major problem and so in a way I wasn't actually that surprised on the other hand I didn't expect it to be double the previous estimates most of the world's cases are in poor and middle income countries but even in the U. K. sepsis is a challenge the death rate here is higher than in similar countries such as Spain France and Canada talk to Ron Daniels is from the U. K. sepsis trust we need to get her set this to be a second biggest killer worldwide off the cardio vascular disease if the loan me that this is claiming lives around the world including right here in the U. K. the good news in this analysis is that cases are falling the hope is understanding the true scale of the problem will raise awareness and save more

All right. Yeah. We did it. We we've talked about all forty one entries just in time for rehearsals to start. So how do people feel about this year's field? This whole selection season. I've been saying there are a lot of songs that I really like. But there are not any that I've fallen in love with from Ukraine's. And so that that love affair lasted all of two days was a brief weekend. Yeah. Yeah. There. There are songs that I'm definitely hopeful for with the that. They'll just knock it out of the park when it comes to when it comes to performance day.

"So allow one destination Eurovision back in January and got through almost entirely by the public vote by day. He is very popular youtuber and just released an album before is YouTube gig. He competed on the voice kids got knocked out in the battle rounds. But in preparation for destination. Eurovision connected with Madame zu who of represented France last year, and they co wrote the song Balza pretty interesting character. He's nineteen of Moroccan descent and very popular in the LGBTQ community. Font of wigs has many names for many ways, what do folks think of the song Davis with you. We watched the the French selection process together. And it just struck me out. What a what a rich field. It was like there was not a clunker in the mix when it got down to the finals. And I like the song lot. And it hasn't aged that great with me like I've kind of forgotten about it from time to time because has just there's kind of a million songs of this ilk. Particularly at your vision. There's. Of empowerment of various kinds. But I think it's a good song. Like Madam assures song last year. Like, you don't need to know a whole lot of French to understand it. I don't think that's a great thing. I in general would prefer like more challenging lyrics like in Spain and Italy's entries. But yeah, I mean, I think it's a pretty good song. I'm fine with it. It's like like my threshold with the big the big five or the big six is like could conceivably make it to the finals under on its merits. And I think I think this would probably that's yeah. I yeah. I I would agree on that portion of things I think language wise, like this feels more dense in terms of French than last year's maybe did. But still feels very I feel like I know what's going on. Even if I don't look up the lyrics, and I applaud how France has gone from like throwing one chorus at the end in English as like some sort of concession. France grand. Okay. Maybe we shouldn't just send Patricia Kaas to sing. A torch song for three minutes. And like they've been getting better from year to year and last year Mme is yours thing was not my thing. But I like what they did with the law, and it feels like they've captured something very that that fits who. He is a singer as a performer like the one thing I'm interested about is. What is this going to look like in the final feel like every time we've seen a performance of this at destination? Eurovision all the way back in January is like a work in progress felt like it's felt like they've got a bunch of elements, and they're not sure which wants to put together, and I'm interested to see which ones they do put together onstage in Tel Aviv. Yeah. I mean that that's kind of my take away from as well like this is one that has been kind of growing on me, the stage performance part. I think it's going to come down to the vision of the artistic director for their stage performance because it seems like below is game for pretty much anything. That's thrown his way, which which is great. But. Yeah. I did not care for either of the performances at destination Eurovision, and I don't even think refined versions of those performances would would work. I think it needs to just be like a completely new idea that is used. I don't think this one's going to win either. I I know that France was an early favorite. But I think that's pretty much kind of Beth because it was January. We didn't have many things to look at. Yeah. Yeah. And I think people may have also been overestimating the appeal of being a YouTube personality and just being like, oh, this is going to totally win the telephone. It's like well. Yeah. When the vote in France because he's a celebrity in France. Like, I I don't know how widespread that popularity is. But I think if this performance is done well France can avoid being underwhelming. Because that's what happened to them last year. Like Michie was supposed to be like a contender for the win. And it was just such an underwhelming performance that they finished in the middle of the field. And yeah, I think they can avoid that. Situation again. But correct choices have been made at this point. Don't try to get the audience to do dopey hand. Gesture anything like that. Don't. I will not be holding four fingers behind my head. I was thinking the exact same thing. It's like, no, no that's not going to happen. You do not make this a participation exercise. No one wants that. So with that while we know is we moved to the United Kingdom who sent Michael rice who was thinking bigger than us. Thank you. Everything.

"Hello. And welcome to the euro what episode number fifty week of may six twenty nineteen. I'm like comb and join today by Ben Smith. Hey, hey, Mike, and our special guests. Dave, Steve's, Dave. Hello, hello. We are bunch of Americans. Trying to make sense of the division song. Contest this week. We'll be talking about the six song set are automatically qualified to go into the grand final has everyone doing this week. I am doing great. There is a constant stream of Atari videos just flow into my veins in the good place. Y'all. Awesome. Dave. How are you doing? I'm doing great. I'm entering the media. Blackout that I usually go into before Eurovision because I do not wanna know anything about the rehearsals. So yeah, I've gone from like completely doing deep dives on everything to try to avoid everything new that kinda hints to what's going on this week of rehearsals are underway in Tel Aviv right now. By the time this episode drops all of the semi-finalists would have gone through their first rehearsals, and they're taking the day off on Wednesday. And then picking up with rehearsals again on Thursday. We're holding off on all her soul talk until. Next week just so that we can have kind of a full picture of what's going on. And there's already a lot of drama already looking forward to talking about it. But I have so many thoughts. I am just saving for next. Yes. But since we have Dave here this week. We wanted to talk a little bit about all of the language stuff. That's been happening this year. It makes it sound. Like there's been a lot of swearing at your vision. That's not what I mean. It's everyone's language has been filthy. This just happens to be a year where there's a lot of non English and yet David I've been kind of just talking about like how awesome that's been? Dave. You're still relatively new to your vision. Right. Yeah. I the first Eurovision that I watched was twenty fourteen. So this is only going to be my sixth. But yeah. For the last couple of years, I've thought it was unusual that I've never heard a Eurovision entry in German or Dutch or a bunch of other like fairly major. Languages. There's still there's still, no Dutch. But this year there were there are eight languages that. I've never heard in the in the song contest, including German oddly from Denmark. Not an actual German speaking country. Yeah. One of my favorite French language songs is the one that Austria sent a few years now it's like that tracks. So anything can happen at the vision song contest for animals on stage. And this is my. Yeah. This is my first time here in Croatian. And even though there was a Croatian entry that was half into talian. Yeah. Do you think there's a reason why? I think he's been so popular recently because I remember like a few years back. It was just like, oh there are four entries that do not have English and this year. It's like one third of the field. I think it's because nine English entries have been winning. I I mean Ukrainian entry was half in tar. And then then the Portuguese winner was entirely in Portuguese. So I think I think everybody's thinking you don't have to compete in English and the fans will just appreciate the song on its own or they'll they'll do the work and get translations into their own language or English. I would definitely agree with that. Also could just be the the nature of this year. Like, we have no clue what's going to do this. Let's this we're setting this. And it's in Albanian, and that's fine. It's fine. Elsewhere. We have another competitor in the ring that is your vision podcasting. It's not a battle. But someone does have to win. It's going to be us who you're on the Hugh who has their own your vision podcasts. Go faker. Well, they will not be a bunch of Americans talking about your. We do still have the corner on that. Yes. Yes. Although do they have enough expertise in this area to really give informed critique on what's what's going. Non in Eurovision Priego, America's playing Eurovision through them. Yes. That is exactly. My. American abroad. I I wish them success with this venture. I hope they realized that the heat the building listenership is regular releases. So they currently have one in the I tune store, and that's probably just the one they need to be in the I tune store. So chop chop y'all chop chop. They announced this last week that they're dropping. It sounds like part of it is it's like a behind the scenes documentary type series, and it's the themes right now. Yeah. Yes, they they do have to collect all the content, and I'm just like, it'd be great. If it was just an episode of week and following a different delegation, and then or I don't know kind of like the good place podcast in a way. But I like the idea that when is the next episode going to drop because so far it's just been. Oh, yeah. We're doing this thing. And then nothing they they haven't even announced when the when the first real episode is happening. So get that space. Debut in time for Eurovision Asia. They are we go. Schedule everything for when you're a vision Asia starts and then deal with the the April gatehouse situation that follows that's a that's the reference that everyone.

This is me and Tony. So wait. So you're you're gonna do it season free in starting in look in March. But I've been down since mid-september, right? Yeah. I watched like I watched the whole first season. I've watched like six of the new ones. So you've seen the Catskills. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. No. I I'm I'm surprised I like it. Because it's a very specific miss males, very specific type of show. But it's so specific and it so the so attentive to detail and there's such a rhythm to the writing in. It's like eight and I'm a comic. So there I get very moved by the whole thing it it. It works for me a good. I really like it. I like your character really has a lot to do this season. I they really boosted my part. It's weird. Because how do you how how you finding people responding to the show in general? Well, it's shows blowing up it's. Yeah. It's crazy. It is. We were in. We did a whole press Junkin. Yeah. Prior to the premiere in early December in New York right after that. And before the premiere hit we we went to Milan. Yeah. Hin we did another press junket for all of the European press outlets and. In when we were there. Then it really sort of come obvious that it was it was catching fire were know around the world globally. Crazy. Yeah. And we we actually had people interviewing us, you know, the battalion press, of course, was there Germany Spain France, and we were on doing phone with people in India, and no kidding. How is this working in? India? They seem to really embrace the show they drop these episodes. You know, all at the same time everywhere are premier date was December fifth think, and you know, in in in the old days when I did network can even cable, you know, you did a season that aired and then two years later something that season with air and yells for right? And it would go too, far, syndicated, whatever right shun, but they were always I would get letters and things were. His two or three years behind right? Right. And now, it's every day goes everywhere at the same moment. Well, they I dislike like, I don't like, I the reason I say I'm surprised I liked the show because I don't watch a lot of things, and it's such a either it's such a specific sort of world and the the divisive it to to sort of put a feminist voice. You know in that period, you know, which I think is the the divisive it as a comic because I know that comics of that ilk were not women, then right? And they they are now and then to sort of set this in and I it's just the writing is so tight how I mean. Well, I think that's the thing about it too. Is that it's takes place in the late fifties. Yeah. And so I think there's a need for us to escape for viewers to. Yeah. The president's day Mattis, and but at the same time, it's not just a nostalgia piece. It has a modern right sense of.

"Here was the testimony this week by the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats. We assess that North Korea will seek to retain its WMD capabilities in is unlikely to completely give up its nuclear weapons and production capabilities because it's leaders ultimately view nuclear weapons as critical to regime survival and here are the president and director coats on the threat from ISIS. We've really stepped it up, and we have one against ISIS. We've beaten them and we've beaten a badly. Isis is intent on resurging and still commands thousands of fighters in Iraq in Syria. They also disagreed the president. And in this case CIA director Jean hospital over whether or not Iran is violating the Iran nuclear deal. What do you make of the president and his own intelligence chief said such odds? Well, let me also say that miss Ahmed was was also a pretty firm and her assurances that ISIS has sleeper cells existing they're not thoroughly defeated yet. Now, the caliphate tariff territorial caliphate is is gone, but we still go sleeper cells. Listen, I come from the private sector spent thirty years in manufacturing entered public life. And I realized I have the modesty to understand that there's an awful lot. There's an, you know, so much tradition in history and complexity to some of these foreign policy issues, you have to rely on people who've been working these issues for for decades, and it's just imperative you actually listen to for example, the CIA chief the director of national intelligence, these people have the real knowledge, and you have to listen to him. Well, that wasn't the president's first reaction. Actually, none of this reactions. His first reaction was to bash the Intel chase let me put up a couple of those tweet. It's the intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive perhaps intelligence should go back to school. And then after meeting with his chiefs the next day. The president said does they said that they were totally misquoted. And they were totally it was taken out of context of what I do is. I'd suggest that you call them. They said it was fake news. Is that healthy? I mean as the head of homeland security committee on the foreign relations committee does that concern you when the president says there is agreement between him and his Intel cheats on all these key issues when clearly from listening to Ted their testimony. There is an agreement. Well, you know, I'll just say one instance, the what the intelligence chiefs, we're talking about Iran. They're saying currently and technically Iran is in compliance. But I think the president's absolutely right of the this type of danger that Iran represents the region of the world. I mean, they're they're continued to plot terrorist tax into Europe. The obviously a fomented the conflict in Yemen, and they are certainly not helpful in Syria. They're a real threat to Israel and to world peace and stability. So technically, they may be in compliance with the agreement currently they may not be pursuing nuclear weapons, but there's still formatting tear. They're still the largest state-sponsored terror in the world. And so I, you know, I think maybe that the difference was blown way out of proportion. I got about a minute left. I wanted to go to one other hospital does a lot on the international plate right now. And that's Venezuela. The president this week announced some dramatic escalations and our campaign against them, nor d'oro regime. He's now backing as a number of other countries are the opposition president from the national assembly on his also imposed some tough new economic sanctions on Venezuela. How far do you think this country should be prepared to go in trying to topple the Maduro regime and would that extend in your judgment to the use of military force? I think the administration's really done an animal job admirable job when it comes to their reaction to what's happening on the ground is the national assembly. Probably the closest thing to open democratic form in in Venezuela that voted for their assembly president one Guido to basically run the country now..

"So so what events led up to the start of World War One. The Germans would eventually shoulder most of the blame for this war. But if you read between the lines, I think it's easy to see that the dirty dirty savage sub-human polish people were actually behind it. All I just I cannot stress enough how evil polish people are. And yes, I am married to one. I am only married to oppose woman because I feel like it's my duty to keep an eye on at least one of them for the good of humanity large find out where they're holding their secret meetings. Did you know that the original recipe for Perot geeze calls for both puppy and baby it's half. Baby. Meet three eighths, puppy meet one, eighth kitten tears, and of course, flowers salt pepper, and some kind of some kind of polish which is blend of devil spices. But seriously enough about monsters, let's talk about real humans. Let's talk about the events the lead up to the start of the war. One of the main ingredients or the of the origin of World War. One is nationalism. European nationalism was on the rise at the beginning of the twentieth century. Nationalism base, largely as it often is in racism, you know, age-old mentality of our people are wonderful, and your people are filthy, ducks people in my country people who look like me are incredible and people who live in your country. People. Don't look quite like, I do are inferior. And I'm still not joking about polish people who who who am I love this is for real this time nationalism was like a religion for much of Europe's imperialist powers and a lot of smaller countries as well. This time England Spain France, Germany, especially though, been spreading their various doctrines of colonialism around the globe for centuries by the beginning of the twentieth century spreading their nationalistic battlecry of where the best everyone else second rate tops, and the nationalism turned into militarism as the leaders of various European nations intended to prove that, you know, their army was the best, you know, they wanted to prove their might really display on the battlefield how superior they actually were proved the most powerful, you know, the the best soldiers the most advanced weapons the most industrialized military. We've talked a lot previously about the Cold War mentality here in the suck. A lot of a lot of suck episodes of revolved around the Cold War and about how in the first few decades following World War to the United States and the Soviet Union.
