Trump says COVID-19 under control as deaths rise
"There's no end in sight to the health crisis caused by the pandemic cases of not stopped rising nor have the number of deaths cases round the rise in thirty two states right now, trump made a point of showing the nation that he remains engaged in the pandemic fight sending out these photos of himself with the corona virus task force including Doctors Foul Chee and burks meeting in the oval. Office. The only two seen wearing masks over their face their he did brief our country today as usual emphasizing how well he thinks his administration is doing. We're putting out embers putting out flames. We've also dramatically accelerated the availability of plasma therapies, steroid treatments, antivirals, and the therapies to treat the illness. Since March Twelfth, we've increased daily testing by thirty, two, thousand percent. We do more testing than anybody in the world.

Dr Kate Welcome to the broken being pot. Adding more LADES, you're young man, you're only forty-three. There's a lot more accolades you can add to your resume over the. Perfect job. A Mike my goal at the end of the day to help kids feel better. That's beautiful. Goal a beautiful purpose and I can't wait to dig into that in today's podcast and I wanna get into a little bit of origin story. How did you get clear and where did all the puzzle pieces aligned himself that that is your goal. You know. I think the universe was calling me. To do this. The first reason why I got into, it was for my own health up as a kid, I had pretty severe anxiety. SPENT, most of my adolescent teenage years in mix of anxiety and depression yo and. My nervous system was upside down and I couldn't really understand why I knew that I was different. I knew I experienced the world differently, but I really had no clue why you know like who would have thought that eating fast food everyday. All Day will be an issue for for your nervous system going bonkers is that what was going on? Were you eating fast food and kind of go? How is the standard American new way of life I mean college like that's what you do. Right Even I remember actually Loma Linda is a vegetarian institution. Why it's famous for being one of the hospital in the Blue Zone. The seventh day adventists. Yeah. But when I got accepted there, one of the thoughts that I had is like Oh my God. What am I gonNA do without my burgers. And that was the mindset I had going into training because I didn't know any better and what actually got me to start looking outside was during my training. I kept kept coming across these cases and I remember one very, very vividly. Twelve year. Old Guy. Severe Severe Colitis. Came in with toxic, Mega Colin were his colon had dilated to about ten centimeters, which is huge, and we did around the steroids. We did some medications for him. He got better when home. Two weeks later, I was still on service. Worse off than before and Beato, our team started the discussion and we brought in all the specialists and basically the end of the discussion was well, he's failing medications. We just need to cut out his colon literally was like he failed medications. So the next option is we just cut out this twelve year olds a lot inflammation. Something's going on. Let's just cut the thing out. because. That is the next standard of care, right. I had a lot of these kinds of scenarios where kids would show up like I remember another guy who plays soccer. He scraped his knee niece bowl up and then thirty six hours later, he was dead. You know and they were just like well, sometimes staff does unlike I've scraped my knee, I haven't died like, what was it about his system that caused him to fall apart and it was this recurring question of like these things don't add up two plus two equal in this scenario and the institution, and they're really smart people alone Linda, don't get me wrong. But the pediatric conventional training was like no two plus two equals farm like it doesn't look this way. So as it is in most hospitals and worst Western approach. Places. Because that's what people are trained in. But you were asking a different question. You're like, okay. This doesn't make sense what's really going on. Exactly. Yeah, and that is what ultimately led me to start taking courses. So I, I went to one holistic kind of course, and it was a dinky little course, but I was like, oh. My God I, you know I have found my people, the light bulbs went off and you started connecting dots. And then from there I went and did a bunch of training with Institute of Functional Medicine and the trading with the University of Arizona, and in the midst of that, I started realizing the pieces that were affecting me so like. I did the elimination diet and started feeling better and then I found myself to have MTA. And I think my initial homocysteine was sixteen when I first tested it, I'm like Jesus. So I started injecting myself with B twelve and you know I was my own best Guinea pig. And in the midst of getting interested, what also happened is Loma Linda's in didn't have anyone that was getting interested in this stuff. They're like, Hey, you wanNA, start a holistic medicine clinic and. Like. Two years of my training and there I was like all of the sudden getting handed these patients you know and I was the expert even though I basically didn't know that much. But through the process of learning and I was really really privileged to be put in a place where you know fifty year olds, I was a pediatrician fifth year olds with Severe Lupus. Land in my doorstep helped me I'm like. I don't know anything about Lupus. So let me learn so I. I spent all this time. Just researching in learning. You know any person that I could find with any material they had on the Web I was reading books listening to the videos. And I was just consuming all of this information in the midst of that. Also learning from my patients,
Need some good news about Covid-19?
"Been been mostly mostly bad bad when when it it comes comes to to information information about about the the Corona Corona virus. virus. Harvard professor Joseph Allen at Harvard University's Th Chan's School of Public Health. Talk to Carol. These David Rankin and says there is some good news that therapeutic will be vaccine. So people may have heard of the steroid DEC. Method Stone on the antiviral disappear. These are being used to treat patients who are quite sick with Kobe 19. But there are other therapeutics that should be coming on the market, including what we call monoclonal antibodies. Normally when your body has a response to this virus of others that creates antibodies. Well, lot of clonal antibodies are just engineered and a body and they could be used for both prevention and treatment that the data they're looking really promising. On the testing front. We've seen advancement in terms of rapid saliva tests. You could think of these as a home pregnancy test. But for covert 19 and in this case is a strip of paper you put in your mouth and it gives you a test result pretty quickly, and it's cheap. And so while the test isn't perfect, the fact that it's cheap and you can take it back and at home. Even better than a better a good, accurate test, but takes seven days to get the results back. We keep seeing that these rapid tests are not as accurate does that increase the danger a little bit of if you think you are negative, and it comes up positive, it's a false positive or a false negative, really good question and the work that shows that if you get these rapid test that air cheap enough, not the expensive, rapid test. But that even if they have false negatives, the fact that you're taking them every day or even multiple times a day is better than an accurate test that you take. And then seven days later, you find out the result at which point it's too late. That you here is that even on day one. If it doesn't get it, then you catch it. The next time you took the test and worst case, you catch it on the third day, And if everybody starts doing this overall, it would really help too slow. The spread of disease, and we get a lot of people confidence about going back into stores or restaurants or even theaters. When is there going to be a vaccine? Because the vaccine seems to be the turning point whether or not we can get back to normal request. It wasn't that long ago where we weren't quite sure we could produce the vaccine for this Corona virus. On If we produce it within a year, which it looks like we'll be able to do that will be the fastest. A vaccine has never been produced by several years. But this is a remarkable scientific achievement. It looks like we will have a vaccine by the end of this year. But I want to be a caveat that that the real challenge is not just getting the vaccine. It's the distribution. Right vaccine never saved any lives on Ly a vaccination has we actually have to get the people? That's not to say it's really good news. I also think that news on therapeutic is just as important. Therapeutics will beat out vaccine this fall is what I'm seeing in terms of the science, and I think that's really important because people aren't scared of getting sick. There's getting scared of death. On. If you have therapeutic that can keep people that can prevent the worst outcomes. I think that will also helped give them confidence to people that will get through this okay. Professor Joseph Allen at Harvard's Th Chan School of Public Health. The U.
7-Year-Old Boy Dies, 5 Others Hospitalized, When Boat Flips Over On South Branch Of Chicago River
"In Chicago say they're still looking at what led to a building incidents on the Chicago River. They left a seven year old boy did last night.

Trump delivers White House coronavirus briefing without public health experts
"You can hear folks care we go. The president is walking out. Good afternoon. Here we go. Here's the president. I want to provide and update on our response to the China virus. And what my administration is doing to get. The outbreak in the Sunbelt under control seems largely and sun belt but could be spreading. My team is also working night and day with Capitol Hill to advance the next economic relief package. We're working very hard on it. We're making a lot of progress. I also I know that both sides want to get it done. We'll call it phase for. I think we're going to get it done will protect our workers, our schools and our families and protecting very strongly As one family. We mourn every precious life that's been lost. I pledge and their honor that we will develop a vaccine. And we will defeat the virus. We're doing very well with vaccine development and therapeutic development. I want to thank brave doctors and nurses and frontline responders job they do is incredible and they are truly brave. My administration will stop at nothing to save lives, and she'll do vulnerable which is so important. We've learned so much about this disease. And we know who the vulnerable are and we are going to indeed shield them and again, the vaccines are coming, and they're coming a lot sooner than anyone thought possible by years. You look at the old system and look at the new system. I think by years China virus is a vicious and dangerous illness, but we've learned a great deal about it. Man who had targets way are in the process of developing a strategy that's going to be very, very powerful. We've developed as we go along some areas of our country doing very well. Others they're doing less well. It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better. Something I don't like saying about things, but that's the way it is. It's the way it's what we have. You look over the world. It's all over the world. Mand. It tends to do that. The governors are working very, very hard and we are supporting them 100% everything they need they get and we are taking good care. We have tremendous supplies and a great supply chain. Whether it's ventilators or gowns are Just about anything they need. So that's a big difference from inheriting very, very empty cupboards. The median age of those who succumb to the China viruses, 78 years old. Roughly half of all deaths have been individuals in nursing homes or long term care. In one study, 90% of those hospitalized had underlying medical conditions. Whether it's hard or diabetes, but usually it's uh, some kind of a condition. It seems that people have that and if they do, it's a problem. No question about it. Young adults may often have mild or even no symptoms. They won't even know this sick. They won't have any idea that they have a virus. They won't have any idea at all. America's youth will act responsibly. And we're asking everybody that when you are not able to socially distance where a mask get a mask, whether you like the mask or not They have an impact. They'll have an effect and we need everything we can get. Data shows Children have the lowest fatality risk. 99.96% of all virus fatalities. Air in adults. Think of that. So that's uh much much, much less than 1%. For Children, young people by understanding these risk profiles and learning how to treat the disease. We've been able to greatly reduce mortality in the United States. In fact, we'll show you A chart and how well we do compared to the rest of the world. We have several treatments already available that significantly reduced the severity and duration of the diseases, including room disappear. Which has been very successful and a widely available steroid treatment. And we have many more happening and coming out. We've learned Best practices for treatment of the virus at every stage. And have shared these findings with medical providers and we've shared them all over the world. The relationship with other countries has been very strong world working together. This includes insuring all hospitals. Are aware of the importance of different approaches to oxygen treatment. Including high flow oxygen, the importance of steroid treatment for those on ventilators. And when you're on a ventilator, we've learned a tremendous about the use of the ventilator. And the beginning. People never had an experience like this, where we needed so many ventilators so fast and even the use of the vent letters, But the doctors have become incredibly and nurses and helpers have become incredibly good at the use of a ventilator, which is actually a very complicated procedure. And allocating room disappeared two hospitals based so a new admission since it works best early and hospitalization. And that's something that they've really started. They using it much earlier fatalities nationwide have fallen 75% since mid April. It's a great number as cases and fatalities rise in certain hardheaded states, which you're looking at right now. We're surging personnel supplies and therapeutics. We again have tremendous amounts of supplies. We are in very good shape and we can move them quickly.

Documentaries having new life thanks to streaming
"The pandemic has sent us all home without access to gyms, hair salons movie theaters. So what's a documentary into do? Peter Spier Academy Award nominated producer director has been making films for several decades dock. He says the documentaries are now finding a renaissance in streaming. One of the unexpected side benefits were filmmakers and peters going to tell all about it Peter. Yes thank you very much a pleasure to be here with us. To tell us about what's going on in streaming. So right now. Because of Covid people are staying home. Fortunately, streaming has really picked up since that time and their reports for the strenuous got up between thirty five and forty percent, so people are now. Using streaming taxes, all of their content Bluefin's shows the Netflix. We're talking about Netflix. Talking about Amazon Voodoo Fandango Comcast Cox. All of these platforms are doing very well. You've got a bunch of different. Movies are out there right now. Summer old summer newer. Tell everybody about what you've got in what what you've seen it. Is it been easier to get them up there? So let's start with telling everybody about some of the titles. Right, so I have a couple of club rugged entertainment. We have three titles right now. A film that I got back from a distribution company called Doug's more which we now have on Amazon Voodoo and Fandango? Probably a few others Newfield called the Sharm hate about the OT. PT Community and that film is currently on all platforms. And we're what's called transactional video so for your for people out there that don't know the difference. There's a transactional video which means you have to rent the video there s Vaud or Day. which subscription video which would be services like? Netflix and Hulu at Amazon and Yeah, so those are the two main. Video. in demand on demand services. Are You finding? There is a bigger thirst for documentaries from the buyers right now than there was before covert. I think with the emergency. Some big documentary programmes tiger king right now out of control in terms of popularity Are you know the jinx? That was another one that kind of broke through and we're looking at documentaries that. Are Not only one offs, but sure. I have what's called a one off. which is just single episode, but. They're also you know episodes. Alike limited a limited series for it's. One two I mean would say three to five or six episodes now. How are you finding the documents as Documenta? How're you finding as a documentarian? Being able to shoot right now when we're social distancing and we're wearing masks, and you're not supposed to be going out and doing these things how you're getting stuff done. It's almost impossible I you know. I think the industry is trying to come to terms with how we are going to move forward shooting the biggest issues insurance so being able to cover, not only the liability. But to protect the crew, that's a whole thing, but you know what it's easier with documentaries and doing a full on production so I think you. Wall Street documentaries because of the cost and the. The smaller impact with the size of the crew well, you could always interview people outside. You don't have to interview them in their office and that has to help right. Well people are doing those kinds of things and then there are you know because people are getting accustomed now to save zoomed interviews, there are documentarian making. Documentaries using zoo. Which is pretty interesting so They're just setting it up and you know you do your interview it. Routing out with other kinds of clips and archival footage, but yeah I mean. People are doing all kinds of work around to make this. If you watch the local news or the National News, it's now become the reporter introduces. As Zoom interview basically and they they cut back and forth between the reporter, staring this computer, his or her computer, and then there's zoom interview. So how do you? You Always WanNa, take documentary docu documentary and take it to another level. So how do you make that more instinct? Well I think in those cases. They're using just the. presets of that look. I think if you're doing the documentary yet more time to creatively do with that particular interview, but you bring up a good point, and you only have limited resolution and quality to zoom interview and. you know unfortunately you have to deliver to the platform, and the platform may reject it based on the quality, so it's definitely something that's going to have to be navigated. Okay finally, tell everybody, but does more. This was the film that you did several years ago. It's been lost lost for years, and it's now back alive again. Thanks to streaming, so plug it in television, yes! Dunn's more features. wwl Brown could name. Harbison Talia Shire a Barry Corbin. Some really cool actors. It's kind of who done it I call it You know a small a town film. On steroids and it's very cool, cool film. And I've got disarm hate about the LGBT committee that's got documentary out now. Streaming narrated by Harvey Fierstein and we have our latest film. Michael Debar. Who Do you walk me? Be About? His kinda zealot type character who was in the film shirt with love and also performed of a billion people at live aid. And why is there a documentary? Why is there a documentary about him now? Well. He's also currently DJ Little Steven's underground garage his second. Biggest DJ that's to Howard Stern, so he's very popular on Siriusxm but He's got an incredible life I. Mean you know it's? It's also a story about recovery. And I'm telling you no matter what you've been through in your life, it will not compared to what he's been through. You can't even imagine the stories the sky half well you. You'll get to see in the film so if you're going to go off and watch documentaries on streaming this weekend. Where should we go? go to Amazon Tango all those places. VOODOO COMCAST COX but the three films to watch Dunsmore. Michael the bar. Who Do you want me to be and disarm me and you could see them on Fandango, Voodoo and Amazon. All of those react Peter spier rugged releasing.
Why the pandemic is getting worse, and how to think about the future
"Okay Richard, so there are about forty seven different things we could talk about to unpack the story of how we got here in where we're going, but we chose a few of the big ones to focus on in this episode, so testing was a mess at the beginning. It seemed to get better for a little bit, and now it seems like it's a mess again, so what happened? Well it is complicated. Let's take you back to the beginning of the epidemic when the decided to develop its own test for the corona virus, which is standard practice for them, but honestly they bungled it, and instead of reaching for tests developed in Germany and distributed widely by the World Health Organization the CDC fix this quickly, and they kept trying, but really that turned out to be a big mistake, and it cost us a lot of time. I think the CDC didn't really realize the scope of this epidemic early on federal health officials should have done what South Korea did for instance what they did overseas immediately spur commercial companies to produce large quantities of tests. The US eventually got to that point, but you know it was really late, and now, of course we are in better shape. The US is averaging something like six hundred thousand tests a day or sometimes even more than that, but. It's still far short of the amount of tests that experts say we should be doing. Yeah, and let me ask you about that. Because I've seen estimates that we need to be doing like double or triple, the amount of tests to really control the virus right and you know the number of tests you need to do is really relative to the number of infected people, so we have so many infected people, and that number is growing. We really need to be doing a lot more testing. For example scientists at the World Health Organization uses a rule of thumb that you should have enough tests that your when you get the results back only about five percent or coming back positive. That, means that most of the people are negative, which is what you'd hope what you'd expect right now. Unfortunately, we have states like Texas and Florida in Arizona where the number of percent positive is like seventeen, eighteen or even twenty five percent, and you know the percent positive rates keep going up, which means it's definitely not true as the president has frequently claimed at the cases are only writing, because we're testing more. No seeing more positive cases as we see more tests so okay. Let's talk about the case numbers of it back in April we were at about you know thirty thousand cases per day and now we're. Sixty thousand new cases a day, which is objectively worse and to put that in perspective, sixty thousand people wouldn't even fit in dodger stadium, which is the biggest baseball stadium in this country, so we're talking about you know. Give you a visual image of what we're talking about it right right and you know. Some of that is driven by big outbreaks in places like California, Texas and Florida. Let's talk a little. Little bit more about why cases are up in those places. Yeah, it's complicated series of reasons, but some of it is that we're what we were talking about a little bit earlier. Some of these were in states like Texas and Arizona that were determined to open really early, and we're a lot of people including politicians thought you know starting. Their economies was more important than being really cautious about the virus. Could also be other stuff at play here because you know it is summer, and those are places that very hot, so more people are spending more time in air conditioning that is to say indoors and one thing we know about this virus is spread more likely indoors among people who are stuck together for at least fifteen minutes or longer in an indoor space. Yeah, honestly like this idea of being indoors is something I've been thinking about. Because I'm looking ahead right and we're looking at the fall in the winter when you're going to have the exact same thing happening all over the country like more people forced indoors. That correlates with of course, the beginning of seasonal flu, circulating some people in the hospital. That kind of stuff right it's going to. We're going GONNA have both epidemics happening at once. It's going to be a real mess. Okay, let's talk a little bit about mortality or people dying from the disease, so the president and others have pointed out in the last few weeks that the numbers of people dying per day are down from early on in the pandemic, and that is true back in mid April. There were days where we had well over two thousand people dying each day, and in the last week or so the US is seeing more like hundred people dying every day on average, although that number seems to be rising again. Let's talk about a few reasons why that could be why we're seeing fewer deaths now than earlier right well, certainly, one of the biggest reasons is not the biggest reason that the death rates are so low now compared to the spring when New York City got clobbered as you recall is nowadays the viruses infecting mainly younger people, and they just frankly less likely to die in Arizona for instance of these days, half the cases are in people aged twenty to forty four years old and only. Only eleven percent of cases and people over sixty five, and of course people over sixty five, or really at the highest risk of death, and you know that that shift younger age groups is both good and bad. The good part diseases hitting a population that can more easily survive, though we should say some people do die should bad part is that the spread is accelerating and putting vulnerable people at higher risk, because now the virus is traveling far and wide and putting more older people and. And people with underlying health conditions in harm's way right and you know one thing to note though is that especially in the younger demographic? This is where we see a lot of the huge racial disparities up, basically which young people are surviving and dying a paper out of Harvard June showed that in this twenty five to thirty four age group, the mortality rate for black people was seven times more than for white people really matters. Who are the those young people are right? It absolutely does. Does the overall risk of death is very very low in this age group, but it does absolutely hit some people harder than others, particularly because more people of color are at risk for contracting the disease because of their jobs, they have to be out and about and also underlying health conditions may also be playing a role here. Yeah, so it appears more young people are getting sick. Fewer of them ultimately die, but to be clear. Young people do get very sick and die from the virus. So that's one reason we're seeing fewer deaths right now. Compared to the beginning of the pandemic as far as why the numbers of deaths don't seem to be matching up with the increase, in cases, yet is partially due to the fact that deaths are what we call a lagging indicator Derek Thompson at the Atlantic wrote a really nice piece on. This will make sure to put in. The episode notes for Richard Let's talk about that a little bit right. Yeah, it's a very plainly put. There's a gap in time between the day someone test positive until the day the either recover or unfortunately die, and then of course. Course there's another lag in which that death is reported health officials. So what you're seeing now. It really in-depth really reflects people who got sick. You know two or three weeks ago or even longer than that, so that's one reason why deaths have not followed in lockstep with a big spike in cases. Yeah, and then there's also this thing called lead time bias right right, and that's basically a phenomenon where data can make it seem like something new is happening, but actually just about how you're collecting. The data with the increases in testing. We've seen in these past few months. We may simply be detecting more this. This virus earlier in people than we did before, people may have been really sick and not get tested to the hospital now people are driving up in their cars right and doing okay, and so there earlier on in the course of disease, but that doesn't really change the percentage of cases that wind up being fatal. It will just take longer than it did early on in the epidemic for those fatalities to show up and of course Richard there a ton of complications that we didn't have time to get into more hospital capacity ventilators, so what sheep the hospitals in actually plays a role in who survives and who? Who doesn't and then you know even though there isn't a cure, of course, doctors have had more time to learn how to treat this disease, so we don't have a lot of data on this yet. In the United States, but it seems like perhaps more people are surviving this disease than right in the beginning right, I think that is clearly the case and you know as long as hospitals aren't totally overwhelmed with patients. They can make use of what they've learned so far to improve treatments. I'll give you just one example steroids which are used to reduce inflammation. Turn out to be quite useful in many instances. So Richard I'm curious like overall how you're feeling looking at where we are compared to. Let's say April, there are ways in which I feel like are a lot more prepared like we understand the virus. A little better were obviously farther along on a vaccine and some potential treatments, but we still don't have adequate testing. Cases are at an all time high. We're heading into the fall, which means we're GONNA, have this consolidation of cold and flu and corona season, plus the schools potentially opening up your really cheering me up here. But maybe the most concerning fig just to keep you just to keep you down. Richard is that I? Just don't feel like we are a country with like one central goal to fight this thing together. Yeah well I think. I would agree with that first off a corona virus vaccine is not going to help much at least not in this coming flu season. Even if one is amazingly enough approved by the end of the year, we'll take really a long time to vaccinate enough people to make a big difference. What really could help would be a good flu vaccine. I think only about half of Americans typically get the flu shot every year and public health officials say if they can dramatically increase that it would really help a lot against this sort of one two punch that we're going to have to be confronting. But you're right about the country, not working well together on this starting with leadership both at the federal level, and also tim states, but also including people who are ignoring all the guidance that's going all the good advice from scientists and people are hesitant to get vaccines because of misinformation. As for testing you know by the fall. There will be some help. I expect doctors offices should have a supply of Rapid Kobe tests. They're like rapid strep test, or whatever the aren't super accurate, but they can help relieve some of the testing bottleneck and sort of looking down the line a little bit farther. Scientists are also working on next generation of tests that you might even be able to do. Do at home and you know those might be ready sometime. Next year next year seems pretty discouraging, doesn't it? It's pretty far off, but you know I'm pretty well resigned to the fact that we're going to be in this for the long haul. covid nineteen is going to be with us for years so even technology that seems far off right now. We'll still be needed
UK moving forward with megatrial for coronavirus treatments
"A UK mega trial designed. Test Treatments Cove Nineteen Haikai Sarah. We're talking about the UK's It's called the recovery trial and it hasn't differences with other ongoing trials of drugs for Corona virus. What are some of the big differences with recovery? The main difference in some senses said it's a really really big trial they have. More than two thousand patients now. In an outbreak like this if you really want to have really good clear, robust result, one of the most important things to include a lot of people to get a really strong signal of secrecy, that's something that recovery has been able to do, and really no other trial in the world has been able to get those patients numbers. This isn't a UK. And the United Kingdom has a lot of cases for its size. Is that one of the reasons that this trial has been success? Yeah, absolutely I mean if they didn't have that many. Many patients in the first place of today wouldn't be able to enroll that many patients some of the people I've talked to so for instance one of the scientists. He's from Norway. He was saying. The recovery trial is really successful in the sense that one in six patients that goes to UK hospital with Kobe nineteen ends up in the trial. Well, you can kinda wonder why they managed to include that many patients. One reason is that they have the National Health Service all the hospitals took part in that and the top doctors in the. The Nation wrote a letter to all the hospitals and all the staff. Saying you know here are the three trials that we want to prioritize in. Please try to include patients in these trials. If you can, so that's kind of how they they ended up with those huge patient numbers in the first place that allowed them to in a very short time. Get some some answers as a result of having all these patients enrolled and kind of coordination at the national level for recovery. They've seen a lot of results in a short time can. Can you talk about some of the drugs? They've been able to either give a thumbs up to or thumbs down to I one. That was a really big deal. Was the hydroxy chloroquine arm of the study so much has been set written about hydro or Quin, banning a lot of that was based on trials, either with very few patients or trials obsessional, so whether patients were randomized to either get hydroxy chloroquine or a different drug or placebo, but basically looked in retrospect and compared how patients did who got hydroxy in patients who didn't? The recovery trial date has the best data we have for civilian patients being treated with hydroxy chloroquine, and they didn't see a significant difference in how the hydroxy chloroquine group did versus suspended care. Group And they put that out in a press release, and within a few days, a lot of other trials that were ongoing that would clearly not have stronger results were ended. I wouldn't say it's quite the end of that drugstore quance Saga Probably, but certainly mocked the attorney on. And on the other side of the roster here we have a drug that actually help patients that were in the hospital, so that sex method zone. It's a steroid drug that's also been known for a long time quite cheap. It's widely available, so it's really nice drug to be shown to be effective against covid nineteen. There's been a lot of debate from the beginning about how much of the severe illness at the end in patients is really the overreaction of the immune system, and that's of course where the steroid drugs attack the pathogenesis really so they can have damp and. And Immune System, and the hope is that that will mean that that the symptoms of patients will be severe and people are more likely to survive, and then that turned out to be the case I mean they. They found that mortality when one third in patients that received accent medicine. That was really the first big randomized trial in this outbreak that showed a clear difference in mortality, the national. Health Service within hours after the result was announced, changed its standard of care to include some episode. This is pretty surprising. These aren't peer reviewed results. These are press release results. Yes. That's been a huge point of contention. There's just kind of tension inherent in this fast-moving pandemic between you know having really robust results in getting them out there as fast as possible and I talked at length with Martin Landry, one of the principal investigators of the about it his argument. Is You kind of get? The baseline results I. You can look at the data and see okay. There is a difference in mortality and might be some changes in the percentages, but nothing major, but then there's a lot of other data that you want to put in the paper that takes some. Some more work, so his argument was. This is an important resulted to change the outcome of patients right now so let's put it out and then try to get the paper out as soon as possible. After that in the paper ended up coming out I think seven days after the results. Yeah, it's a bit of a wild west. Now place is different. Hospitals have different standards of care like in the US. A lot of hospitals are using convalescent plasma. This is a blood product from a person has recovered from cove nineteen and they're using that to treat patients in the hospital. But convalescent plasma hasn't been subjected to the same level of scrutiny at the same level of evidence has been obtained. You know for that as a deck of Methadone the drug. We just talked about right and I. Mean that's the two points though that I find really interesting and one is. If you're going to give patients these drugs, anyway, you might as well be using that to generate data that then shows whether the drug works said they aren't collecting data on these treatments, so they are collecting data, very. Very. Often right, the problem is I. Mean it does back to what I was saying about randomized patients, you can treat patients with something and then say okay. We're collecting a lot of data and we'LL GONNA look back at how the patients did that. Receive Drug and how patients did that didn't but there's a hierarchy of evidence and really in that hierarchy a randomized trial just because it gets rid of all the bias season, who would receive a drug or not otherwise so everyone? I talked to really agree. Agree that we need in this particular situation that's condemning when you want to see as fast as possible whether a drug has a big effect on the hard outcome like do people die or do they survive what you need, a large randomized trials, and when you ask people why they do, it also goes back to what you were saying. A lot of people said when they tried to convince doctors to take part. The doctor say well, but I have a good feeling I think. I know what works, right. Right maybe I mean doctors sometimes willing to accept a lower standard of evidence to guide their decisions. It then becomes very difficult to get to that higher level of evidence because to do that. You need to accept that half of your patients are not going to receive whatever you believe to be the most useful. That's inherent tension in the whole enduring these kinds of trials when you have some observational data already, but you don't really have the kind of strong data that let's say with confidence. Okay, this worse. I'm here in the US. We have many many cases, but there isn't this sized patient group being randomized. Is that because of what we just talked about, or is it more a lack of coordination? The US has done one big trial though the National Institutes of health the first. Study that was a randomized placebo controlled trial that included a lot of patients. And did give a robust result didn't really see a difference in mortality, but it showed that patients receive from severe. Stay in hospital for a short time period. Why haven't more trials like that I? Think it is a lack of coordination. You can argue that the whole response in the US to this virus has been marked by lack of ordination, and then, of course it does help when you have certain structures in place so again. The National Health Service in the UK with all of these hospitals. Part of this National Health Service. Of course, it makes it a lot easier. You put in place this one structure, one ethical board, and then you kind of do it from there while if you have to piece together coalition. Coalition of different hospitals and different investigators, it becomes a little bit more complicated. I think right, but given the the sheer amount of cases, the US has had i. mean certainly data could have been generated that would have informed both the US and the rest of the world a lot better about what works what doesn't.
U.S. considers banning TikTok and other apps, Pompeo says
"Of State Mike Pompeo, saying Something's toe Laura Ingraham last night on the Fox News Channel. That the U. S is looking well, let's just put it this way. They're very suspicious of Chinese based social media platforms most prominently right now, Tic Tac. But there are others that they're looking at, and that they're actually concerned that the Chinese are going to be using these APS that people download is kind of info harvesting. Campaigns, and I know that they're kind of pushing back against that. But Ari, come on. You have to be a you know a blind person not to see that it's really easy for them to be able to do exactly what the secretary of state says they were concerned about. No entirely and and Mike Pompeii sees it as ah, a national security threat, which I which I get, but to push back also for the government to kind of intervene and say, Hey, you know, we're gonna end this social media app. I think it's a great area because also, I don't believe it's it's fully a national security threat. But there's no question there are dangers there, and I do think it's you know. Consumer. Buy it. Buyer Beware. You know if you're uploading your information like you need to know that there's a possibility that your information is being used. Now it's kind of a bit on steroids. This's a new conversation. Hey, is your data being used now? Ah, within foreign within foreign foreign governments, intelligence, So that's kind of I think that's going to change the conversation. Whether or not the U. S government is actually going to step forward and going actually legally banned it. I don't think so Well,
Daily coronavirus cases hit new high as states mandate masks
"We begin tonight with the dramatic spike in virus cases throughout many states, most notably Texas and Florida both states rolling back reopening. Dr Anthony Fauci sounding new warnings today. Florida California Arizona Texas places like that. There really is a difficult situation. Because as individual states, cities locations are opening up They're really saying a a serious concern of increase in cases, and it isn't just because they're doing more testing, there are more cases. There are more hospitalizations in some of those places and soon you'll be seeing more debts if you. You. Say you're going to go back into lockdown? They'll be an absolute pushback on that. You might have to do it. You never take that off the table, but before you do that. How about doing the things that we said all along? You should do for goodness. Sakes avoid crowds. Wear masks when you see most of the young people. I totally understand. The desire and the urge since you've been locked down so long to go out and just let it let it rip as they say just go out and have a great time. You've got understand that A. we're seeing more and more situations where young otherwise healthy people who get infected. Ill, so you have a responsibility to yourself, but as important is that when you get infected? Even if you don't have any symptoms, you apart of the dynamic process of propagating pandemic. That's killing people. Taxes has become one of the nation's most critical hotspots. There's fear things are so bad. Hospitals are on the verge of being overwhelmed. Dr Salil Bondar is an emergency room doctor at Houston Memorials Herman and is with us live tonight Dr Dari. Give us a sense of what it's like there right now. I mean. It's a very critical time in this city without a doubt. Just just to give you an example, our idea where we're at a prior to June first, we had about one hundred sixty patients across our hospital systems that were in fact with Covid, and now we're at about five hundred patients. Hospital systems that are infected with covid and even yesterday we had six thousand new cases. In Texas a Covid, so there's definitely a high degree of concern amongst everybody here at the hospital in our hospital system and and all throughout the city. What are you seeing in terms of the ages of people being hospitalized, and those being admitted to the ICU, because we're hearing a lot that it is younger people contracting the disease, and those are the new cases, but if so, then then, why are they being hospitalized and wire? They being admitted to the ICU. We did not see those young ages when we went through this here in New York. No that's definitely. That's definitely a paradigm shift that we're seeing a little bit more that we were seeing before. There are larger percentage of younger patients better coming into the hospital competitive before. The good thing is, is that usually? They don't end up staying in the hospital for as long as some of the older patients but that is something new that we are seeing compared to before the slightly larger percentage of patients of the younger population. What's capacity at this point in the hospitals handle the surge. And that's a great question. I think there's been a lot of misinformation about that buys wanted to give you a better understanding of where we're at met. Specifically right now. The Texas Medical Center We have one one thousand, three hundred thirty beds that are available, normally are normal capacities, one, thousand, three, hundred thirty, and yes, those beds are pretty much full at this point in time, however we have prepared for surge capacity as well, and that's about three hundred seventy three additional beds as at search past. If those fill up, there are about five hundred additional beds beyond that potentially. We could utilize as well so right now we have extra bedroom to to care for some of those people using our surge capacity, but if the rates continue as they are right now if the rates continued to the degree that they are right now, two weeks from out, could be very very different story. Tell us about some of the treatments that you are using. Do you have access to disappear? And if so, do you have to ration it? Yes so we're definitely using. For Sure A. Lot of the ICU patients especially there have been some new trials that have come out from the UK about about some steroids as well that can use a text methadone. That we are looking into. In addition, but at the end of the day there's still no vaccine for this, so we still need to do everything that we can toward off people coming into the hospitals, and it's all about all those preventative measures that we've been saying for a long time that that I think Houston really needs to make sure that we follow and do all of those things otherwise two weeks from now. We're GONNA be in a very very difficult situation, even worse than now that we may not be able to come back from Iraq now we can handle it, but we just hope it doesn't get even worse than it is right now. Governor Abbott did roll back some of the reopening plans today including shutting down bars and rafting. Is that enough from your perspective or does he need to close more? I. That was definitely a needed step. without a doubt may end up needing more than that I here in the city of Houston judge. Lena Hidalgo has issued a stay at home advisory for for all residents of Houston and I think at the end of the day we we all know. What to do for this viruses, no mystery as to how to to flatten the carbon, bring down the curve. We know that what works what doesn't. We know that we just need to stay at home and and avoid contact with all those. Extraneous people are going out to different places. We know what to do and I think we may end up needing more than that, but we'll kind of see how it goes. But for right now. That was definitely a needed a good step.

"steroids" Discussed on Coronacast
"Be Pretty easy because every hospital in developed countries is going to have some its pharmacy store, and it's not as if you give this to everybody with Covid, nineteen only works in people who are either. Either, developing severe disease, or who are already being ventilated, so that's already only about five percent, probably a of the total number of people who are gaining covid nineteen, so that's that's the situation in for example, if you're in a nursing, home, and people are getting quite seeking the elderly people. Then you might give your takes zone in the nursing home when they're in place and they're, they're not yet. Yet developed and that will prevent maybe one in five, not going onto needing ventilation, and if you're an intensive care, then it would be routine care in an intensive care unit, and hopefully reduce the chances of dying bit by a third of those statistics right there. So that's what will happen, so it's not for general practitioners to prescribe. It's really a specialist situation where somebody's getting severe disease although in. In residential aged care often they don't go into hospital and they are being treated in place, and then you might give his own. There's no other reason not to do. You think they're going to see hospitals? In Australia giving the COVID, nineteen patients or do they need to wait for the Peer Review Process where we've got almost nobody in intensive care or seriously ill, we've got a few very many. And I would see the practice changing immediately because this is not a drug, that's a higher stroke to use using the they know the side effects, and I imagine they all start using it right now. Even though it's on press release, and once it's the peer reviewed studies there peer reviewed studies is somehow contradicts it and finds no benefit. They'll stop using.

"steroids" Discussed on The Lab
"Weirdness in unexplained like You know kernels of doubt around his cover story in concert with the fake curl Carlos Beltran family member. You know putting that out there and UH also Trevor Bauer and various others said like a rumor that I've been hearing for years around the game with the Astros. You know about the buzzers. I guess my point is if this was a if this was a criminal trial and you were presenting evidence of a video of him not wanting his uniform off and the testimony of a bunch of disgruntled either former employees or rivals competitors or in the case of someone like Trevor Bauer Known Astros haters. It wouldn't hold up. I mean it wouldn't wouldn't hold up that we need more than that to like completely condemn Jose Altuve. Am and take away everything. He's accomplished in baseball or Alex. Bregman now it will be interesting if we see huge drop and those guys numbers this year again. That's probably not criminal quality evidence but That would be interesting. It's interesting to me that you you talk about how much the astros cheated how much it helped them in you know did did it actually helped them in the world series. Did the red sox continue their their cheating into the two thousand eighteen world series but the question that mlb straight up refused just to try to answer is how many teams are doing this. And that's the like the thing that is driving me the most crazy about this because because that's impossible many other teams. Were doing it too. Otherwise why didn't the former players on those teams blow the whistle the moment they weren't on the team. Why wouldn't you go to another team be like? Yeah there's definitely cheating over there and have it be exposed. I just there so I I don't understand. Why baseball no I do? You understand why baseball did not want to actually look into this deeper. Because they don't WanNa know exactly. How many teams are doing this? They don't WanNa have to punish everyone they don't want the integrity of the game to be sullied for every single team. Even though that's part of the argument about why this big of a deal if every team is doing it's there's no good answer from baseball perspective to that because imagine imagine they say oh it turns out every team is cheating so it's fine or if it turns out which is what it is right now only the good teams were cheating and they won world series. So maybe the other teams should have cheated. I mean there's no there's no good answer. Those teams won the world series. That's it's bad enough on for me. Those are the teams that did the best just a as a point of order the Yankees also were fined for cheating and they did not win the world series and now they're learner over the astros yeah and they were in the playoffs. Okay so Sarah like we know your position on this. That signed stealing is not cheating and maybe even with the use of technology. It's not necessarily the worst crime someone one could commit. Is that a fair summary of your yard. That's fair in the past. So then so we created this cheat metric of the the ways in which a scandal could affect you know the integrity of the game The opponent a team itself the League the fans individual will players all of these things in sort of tallied up based on the number of different sort of dimensions in which a scandal corrupts the game. Potentially the highest score I I believe was bountygate. That got a twenty four point five on our cheat scale taking in the NBA. Got a twenty four The black SOx scandal in baseball. Got a twenty a to the astros signed stealing got a seventeen point five at the time and that was when we were kind of underplaying it but still seventeen and a half is on the higher side. So what is is it about this. That is still sort of not clicking for you as a scandal compared with maybe something else that that a lot of the other scandals that have come up in sports awards so stealing signs is part of the game and that is where baseball. has this constant problem here. You you are allowed encouraged orig- well maybe not by the other team. Certainly by your own to steal a pitcher signs were there is a punishment Bilton for that whereas if you get caught stealing signs you better be prepared for the next pitch coming at your head. I asked one of baseball's many unwritten rules which is also part of the thing. That's driving me crazy about this. The whole thing. So that's that's a part of the game. It's always been a part of the game but then there's this line that is a recent line no and hadn't been a rule until two thousand seventeen cheating is fine in this way but you can't use technology to cheat which I think is a classic baseball thing like back. No no you can cheat. But you can only cheat in the ways that they could have cheated in nineteen ten and we're going to ignore the century of progress in between. But you can still can't do that. I think the thing about the unwritten rules is is really interesting in this context too because it seems like baseball. has these huge gaps in the rules as it pertains to the way in which technology could be used to gain a competitive advantage. I mean they were not proactive. They were the opposite of proactive. About trying to envision the ways in which teams would use this to try to gain an edge and so a team like the astros known for being sort of pushing the boundary no no matter what sort of filled in those gaps and I think maybe baseball relied on the unwritten rules of sort of like this is unsportsmanlike. And and it's about how how you play the game and all this kind of BS And norms around the game to sort of enforce the gaps in the the written rules. The Astros were one one of the first teams that just did not give a single crap about norms wanted to break norms. They were disruptors. They prided themselves on being that I think that that stance dance from baseball is simply is simply just putting their head in the sand. I can sit in my house on my couch and watch a catcher deliver signs to the Pitcher pitcher. I have never for once thought that. Oh teams aren't looking at that. They're just like refusing to look at. They're not they're not paying attention to signs. Of course they they are and in many ways legally of course they look at footage from other catchers and try to catch onto signs they would be it would be malpractice not not to use those kinds. I mean the game footage to check that the question is then using it within the game. Baseball was ridiculous to not put in place some sort of rule against that forever ago if that was important to them the difference here is that the traditional sign stealing. Let's say a guy on Second Zach or something like that reeling. There was never a way it was not effective. There was never a way to tell a hitter in real time which pitches about to dot com. And because of that it became a con a non-issue became something you could really go to lengths to do and of force the other team to change its signs but it was never are GonNa ultimately give you that much of an edge but now with technology. It's sort of changed. It has changed to the point. Where in theory you could be relaying this to Hitter in real time while he's about to face the next pitch and all of a sudden that changes everything I mean. If you know that the next pitch you've two strikes you know the next pitches curve ball and you're sitting on a fastball. That's that's GonNa Change what happens on the field that's going to enhance performance to a level that the old old traditional sign stealing never had so. That's why I think. The technology distinction is important and also frankly I agree with you that they should have anticipated this. They should have you know maybe got ahead of this problem beforehand. Well when we had all this technology coming out in this century and all these things in the smartphones and all all the stuff that they could have probably come up with a way I mean really what is ultimately going to happen if this keeps going is that they're just GonNa put in a Mike between the catcher or or something between the catcher in the pitcher that relays the signs and that traditional holding the fingers behind the plate is going to go away because that's GonNa the only way to stop it but that's that's sort of my point too. There is a very easy remedy. There are lots of easy remedies but one of them is the teams can change change their signs and that's exactly what the nationals did. Because they believed that the astros were stealing signs by whatever means and so they changed their signs. That's how you do that and that and that's that's how you've always been able to do that. But do you think that this is another aspect of baseball sort of creating a problem. By turning a blind eye not being better about anticipating the way in which changes to society and technology could infringe upon you know idealistic vision of how baseball baseball should be played in the field of dreams outside Kevin Costner's house and by being willfully ignorant of that they have now sort of said. Well I just system shock to the Astros are doing this. The outsourcing basically the blame to some combination of the players and the and the Front Front office and then punishments to the Front Office but baseball itself has sort of acting like the victim when in fact they sort of set up this situation where it was inevitable that this was going to happen. Yeah exactly I mean I think if baseball had been serious in two thousand seventeen about really stopping electronic means of communication medication like that they could have taken away the TV. They did send a memo and say that guys like like anyone reads memos But they were like guys. You shouldn't do this and astros probably like promptly crumpled up you know print out and throw it in the trash. Can they then banged on to single. I mean and we'll be had the power to say. Okay here. Are the the ways communication it can happen during a game. I mean they could have set up the parameters for that if they were concerned about it happening again which comes back to. I think the Astros right right. Now are the scapegoat for anything. MLB thinks is wrong with the game. The punishments handed down from. MLB there. We're not just I sign stealing the the executive who yelled at female reporters Brennan Todman. He has been suspended for a year and probably will never work in baseball again. Right and so this wasn't just a very targeted thing on science dealing it was a very targeted thing on the Astros. And we were in a place right there where everyone saw the astros as the villain of MLB..
"steroids" Discussed on The Lab
"Studio by senior. Sportswriter neil pain colonial. How's it going? It's going well. How are you enjoy a long weekend? IOS Fine Watch some football Sunday was just a pure celebration of all things football. I are on the line from Los Angeles. This fivethirtyeight contributor Jeff Foster Jeff. Hello Sarah how are you. I'm good did you enjoy the pure celebration of all things football on Sunday. No I didn't just feeling I had to say something different than L.. Here bet on the titans. I don't think I'm ready to talk. Talk about that on air but maybe no these games weren't I was just joking. Relevant Kevin Real. What I bet on? That doesn't influence my enjoyment of the game too much. I don't think that's Alice's yeah. Or my analysis so so you apparently were surprised that the chiefs beat the titans by seven and a half point. A little got yeah. I wonder why you would frame Dan. That's such an audit. Just picking a number rarely guys you know number that you know has a decimal. Incidentally I wasn't surprised that the chiefs one one and I wasn't surprised with the niners nor was really anyone I think compared to last week it was interesting that this week except for like ten minutes of the first quarter order of the chiefs and Titans game really. It went like people expected in for about thirty seconds in that packer. Game The the first ten minutes of the Titans Game I was like oh no. Do we understand the titans at all. Like they're up ten nothing and I was like who whoa but then the ship righted and sanity. Your Patrick Mahomes was like wait. I'm good what's happening. Let's fix this well now. We have the Super Super Bowl of so excited. I I mean these teams should be fun right. It should be a good game and it seems like the two best teams yeah and it also also is like a nice contrast in styles and strengths and weaknesses in they match up in interesting ways. So I'm excited about it. What about you jeff too much? It's red that is true. Yeah no no. It's interesting because it seemed like such a wacky. NFL playoffs starting with the the saints. Losing losing and then the Patriots losing in the Ravens and then at the end of the day this this is kind of a one seed versus the two seat. It's very chaki super bowl. So who do you guys like in the Super Bowl. Let's make early predictions that we can refine and sweet first of all. We're going to probably break this down. Yeah in in in Painful detail Next week and secondly as part of that I think a big a big aspect of it will be the fact that it is two of our superbowl draft teams going up against each other. That is you versus me when I went head to head with Jeff in the fantasy championship and going head to head with Sarah for the Super Roll draft. And now I need to. I need to win. I'll avenge you jeff. So you like the chiefs. This is what you're saying. Yeah how could I not at this point right. That's like also also they're going to win. I obviously like the niners bucket. Jeff who you got us the impartial observer. Niners ooh look at that when you have this. That's your West Coast bias showing west coast by offensive powerhouse versus defensive powerhouse. I generally go with the defensive team. It's like the SEAHAWKS broncos Super Vol- not a lot of people were give. Even though the point spread was small. No one was really giving the seahawks a fair shake and then look what happened. They destroyed them. It seems like the defense scene usually comes up and it's not like nine or bad offensive team. Don't we have a week to process this. I mean my opinion might change based on what I absolutely. Don't you see this week while nothing happens. I wanted your instant reactions we can we can adjust we. Can you know. Think about it. Come back to next week. That's the beauty of the two weeks just before the Super Bowl there is nobody in the two weeks before this heat waiting. There's a pro bowl. No no never want that. I mean even Jim Nance could not summon on the enthusiasm to promote the pro ball. You try try but it sounded very insincere. All right well we'll come back to this next week. We can see if jeff changes his mind on. Today's show we'll discuss the following implications of the Astros signed stealing scandal. And we'll take a deep dive into.

"Paul how we doing already how you doing man do a good man great to have you on thank you I appreciate. We tied went on a little bit last night at the Barstool party had a little too much drinks. I called it a night a little early. I'm getting on too old for this crap man but It was a fun time and they put on a good Party and it was It was just a lot of fun. We get to see a couple of guys seeing From singing songs one of the guys in the office dressed up as Santa. It was fun. Men Yeah it was a great time it was funny was our standing next day and he. It said that the day before you called in because you hurt your back yes and we look left and you were doing the Deck Prescott trails jumping up and yeah. Yeah so so the date it comes around goes back. I'm like listen man. I was not just doing the deck. Do you WanNa do is shot and then David said something to me like you must be feeling good. I'm like yeah. I'm feeling good on some vikings right now and then he's making me do in shots. Jameson over here. Okay so I'm feeling pretty sky. Yeah I blocked. My back happens once. I texted Dave in the morning. He the best part about David doesn't even text you back and then he comes to morning. How's your back man? So I know acknowledged no no but then he this morning. You're like yeah in what it is. It's Brian Giles. wrote ran me over at home plate. Wow I don't even remember the put me in another planet And it broke my clavicle until like once every four years I literally if I sleep too hard in stay in one spot it just it goes out on me and it just it went out and I remember I called Dave. I called Jen immediately early in the morning zone alert. Everybody Mimi like I'm only going to be out for one day and I remember. Jen looked at me yesterday. Goes was you okay. I'm like I have a New York Dr in La Doctor. Those are the two places I live in. Obviously I played in their both the mets doctor and the doctor Dr Willamette doctor actor. He's given me so so many shots in that same spot over the years. He knows exactly. Because I've had to go to a different doctor before and I blew out. I mean when I went to let's see my daughter in Texas and the guy took like eight times before he hit the spot and I wanted to kill the Stalk Hawk so the guy here in New York knows what to do so he puts it in a tiny bit sore. Now I I feel great so Brian. Giles is completely truck. The shit out of you. What how rush me it was? He was a cheap shot actually threw the ball start a major Malay but but that was it was just a little bit more article bases loaded and it was a comeback or to the pitcher but a slow comebacker. One one of those ones. Where you really can't turn a doe play So I was acting more like a first basement so I caught the ball cleared myself. Big Time cleared myself at least three feet three to four four feet. He got thrown out of the game for it to get out of the way and he decided to run me over anyway. Like I was basically like standing there getting blindsided by a quarterback and I got up and you don't feel the pain you know originally you you're just you're so anti threw the ball Adam and charged him and next thing you know. I'm charging San Diego Padre Bench at the time. Like what am I doing. Remember caught say was in the circle. Like what are you doing in the next starts out. And then when I went back to sit down the catch Just felt it felt it immediately and I told her I'm like I can't believe he didn't throw me out but I need to go. Yeah so yeah in. That's just something I've oh no. Yeah no I hear you that Sounds rough and to link all years is brutal but you know I talked the Dave about you on the podcast. Probably temper have always been a big fan of you and just you know your whole barstools on the rundown or whatnot and I just asked him one on the dog. Walk Right now. It's like. Hey like who's like a guy that got away and Katie Nolan. I was like well. I think I think it will do good dude so awesome have you man. I appreciate that I know that you said Ah Dave and then they say well maybe we're still in the funny part at that time they probably didn't even tell you him and I were talking and I feel like like I've always been part of Barstool. Did so many things I was the voice of. Pardon my take a little while For people that don't know that and then Did the early rundowns like you said Ed This guy style. And by the way we're doing classic one This Saturday we're going to old school ones. Yeah where my face is just right on the screen. Because I I had no clue what I was doing but those are fun when when day was holding the with a while. Back a lot of people forget about that or donating realize that. And they're really fun rundowns and He and I've always felt like I was always part of our soul and then when I made it to come here fulltime I told Dave I said listen. Let me do finish out my stuff with with Fox in my stuff with the horse racing and then days like okay. Let's you know. We sat down and when he started the best thing. He's like. Listen you want to come aboard and then I was. Yeah of course very gone now. You're doing gambling content so it's great it's great to have you back in the fold full-time and You know we. We actually had the opportunity to do radio. I think it was a couple of weeks ago. Or whatever ever and It was interesting because we were talking about something was badger. And Dave I forget what it was at the moment but something was keep going he was just tired of it. He's like I'm just I'm just like I'm tired. I I don't WanNa responding where it's not that I'm mad. It's just I just don't want to deal with anymore and you said you've been similar situation kind of would like to stay right. So what Dave you have to take an on what I appreciate day for. He takes things head on But there are some some points when you take it head on you have those persistent assistant people that just don't stop and on stop and don't stop. It's like uncle okay. It's like getting in an accident. All right I know that I hit your car. Stop Stop screaming at me You know what I mean it you know so I know I cut you off. I quit. Lay Off your horn. I'm sorry okay like it's like no one. The play ends. Yeah like when people come at me with steroid wise and it's like it made my career. Somebody's careered they're out of their mind. In a lot of other things like when Dave gets criticized over things. It's just it's just stupid so like I took the same approach. SORTA Dave does is now and I think he he he learned and I did the same thing if I would have twitter back. Probably fired back like he did. And I think now he softened up not softened up but he gets to the point where it was like he surges urges ignores the nats in Hill. Go after the people that that he feels are attacking him in the right way. He has almost like me. I have a three strike policy Mhm I don't care if you fuck him I don't I don't block anybody. I don't mind words and my words you know whatever you WanNa come at me with come out with with. Yeah but don't tell me I couldn't hit a baseball. Got Hitting records all over the place. Don't tell me I couldn't play in the big leagues. I'm five foot eight every bit five eight when people see me they go And and I tell them see. You don't have to be that big to be a professional athlete. So no I heard sometimes gets to you when people are like oh he was only get because he did exactly so. It's like you still got to be able to hit you still. Have you still been my thing is like I always tell this Dave. I dropped all the time and and I remember big cat started laughing often. 'cause they did a thing on a state and my numbers right between Reggie Jackson and Barry Bonds and that's basically all I need to say to people is that I I got about fifteen or sixteen hit records Arizona when I was a fat piece of Shit so it it did not make my career and and for the record I never pest positive detective now. When did you start juice? And Paul and didn't juice I got prescribed when I got run over at home plate in one thousand nine hundred five. Yeah really so. That was ninety five. The Brian Giles thing. No that was. It was a different thing. Yeah cloud in ninety five. Yeah she you prescribed. What what was it so because with the Mitchell report what was that bullshit then that was just you know if you look at the Mitchell? They're all the same guys you know all the same guys from the same Quote company. Me I guess we would call it or agents because if you look at a lot of people will look at the Mitchell report but they also don't look at the checks the checks okay. So my name's written on a check. Obviously you don't think a a guy heads get new steroids or getting drugs or whatever in a lot of things. People don't realize is a lot of that wasn't steroids. A lot of that was we were paying him for greenies and guys repaying for For other pills to bike inns. That was a way to get it. That kind of stuff so a lot of those checks rather weren't for steroids somewhere somewhere and the uppers right. Yeah just made you. which is pretty pretty crazy that it was frowned upon? Meanwhile cocaine you could do you. I mean like and I was always another thing too. It's like okay. You're taking a Greenie. Witch fighter. Pilots took to stay awake. Trucker's Tan took to stay awake. You can get them basically on the side of the road Those were illegal. But you could snort lines so there was always we're weird things we've happing in. MLB guys that are on the forty man roster can smoke weed guys..

Bill Clinton a couple of decades ago. you know voting on this and then jetting out of town. The one caveat I will add is that there's also government government Funding deadline coming up On December twentieth. So they also have to figure out how to keep the government open And not repeat last year's Christmas time government shutdown so it's certainly going to be a complicated busy and fraud time on on Capitol Hill For this holiday season Nicholas Nicholas von Dose Congressional correspondent for The New York Times.

"steroids" Discussed on Baseball Together Podcast
"I am Brad and as usual I am joined by Brig High Baseball family. We are coming at you this week with some hot current events and into a pretty hot topic that's kind of lingered for a couple of decades. It seems like in Baseball WE'RE GONNA talk about steroids today so now a bit later. We've been wanting to do this one for a while and we're finally getting to it today but before we do that. Let's talk about current. Events Sounds Awesome so this week brig we had one crazy game between between the Yankees and the twins will went ten innings five hours final scores Fourteen to twelve. No I know and I I didn't get to actually watch the game but I watched the watch the recap because they put together the highlights that's on facebook and everything you know is the best thing you feel like you're watching every single game yeah but man that game was insane and the way that it ended with Aaron Hicks in lay this out for your quick. The twins had the bases loaded down to the bottom of the tenth air Aaron Hicks goes out there in less centerfield and and lays out as far as he can to get that ball I mean I like that too guts for him. Even make that attempt. Oh Yeah we're over the shoulder yeah if he misses it that game is over and the Yankees loose that was ought to walk off or go home home. Yep catcher who I thought that was a big time. Spot gutsy it was play well and you should see the replays amazing he comes he you know he lays out like totally flying through the air he's he's completely parallel with the ground and then he catches is the ball and the next thing that happens is his face go slamming into the ground and hangs onto the ball as like magical man because he came up and I saw his hat dang happened to his hats all jacked up. I watch the replay like Oh. That's what happened is face hit the ground yeah pretty hard. It really did did fantastic play great way to end an exciting game. I thought that was that was a great game. I I wished I watched it I sat and watched that game for five hours. Oh yeah no problem me to. I would have been a blast. and I look forward to more match ups like this break Rick. Do you think this could be a potential playoff matchup that we're. GonNa see yeah I do I I do and I think that it will be a very similar scenario scenario if we do see these teams in the playoffs. I think that it'll be big time high scoring very exciting games the only thing that will change that scenario is if the Yankees can put together since starting pitching yeah which has been abysmal as of right now and yet is your tate dizzy sit here. I know Pakistan has given up at least seven right now against the Red Sox at Fenway and then yesterday Tanaka gave up twelve twelve and got all just so bad just but the part partly to blame with that series of Minnesota because of all the fatigued arms so yeah. That's not an excuse so funny one of my favorite things and we'll talk about this in another episode but one of my favorite things things is when the radio announcers get involved like they you can feel their emotional involvement kind of rising with the moment not you don't get that so much on television with the play by play guys but but on on radio and I listened to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman all the time and so one of my favorite ways to consume baseball actually is the Radio Jio. I Love Baseball on Radio Yeah so I'm listening get Susan Funny 'cause they. They they pulled in. I think Stephen Tarpley in in the third or the fourth inning after Tanaka just got a NI- elated and she's like well this one that run is credited to Tanaka as as well and it was so funny because she's she's sitting there saying well if Tanaka heading to put us in this position and be here right right the she's so upset seething you could tell she was so mad that's his fault if he put us in this position and it was just snotty and and bunny and I thought this is great this is this is our should be so it's really I just love that end the cool thing with the the Yankees Yankees Fan but this a lot of my exposure of the Yankees the Yankees you get everybody's involved right everybody the guys on TV TV the radio announcers the concessions people everybody's in it to win it man everybody so even Susan's like. How could you do this to us yeah that that is one thing? I love about radio. Is that the radio guys I feel like our so like so much more bias towards their team the TV Viga is like every once in a while you get TV guys who are really into it but the radio guys are all about the home team at even if they're not a fan of that team they sure do a great job of putting on on that facade of making you think that they are in it. They're they're in it with you yeah if they're fighting with you for this team and that's one thing. I love about two games was on radio. It's it's so fun in that way the way it should be yep exactly but something about this game that I thought was super cool as watching this highlight and sitting there and you know it gets it gets late it gets to like the eighth inning and and the Yankees are down still quite a bit and I'm like how how does this thing go ten yeah and this is the thing that's that's crazy about. This is they scored. Five runs in the eighth gave up two more in the bottom of the eighth scored two in the top of the ninth to take lead and then the twins scored. One of the bottom of the ninth in the Yankees went on score two more on the top of the tenth like that's like the best three innings of baseball. We've had all season for sure. That is some killer baseball right there yeah game of the year all the Yankee fans. They're saying it's a game of the year. ESPN should be saying. That's the game of the year orderly. That's that is an insane game and that's going to be one that I think they're gonNA replaying I dunno in the offseason yeah well and then too low the basis in the bottom of the tenth right like come on now yeah. Chapman loaded up the basis. That's crazy took colder yeah. I know yeah so a whole lot of fun. I'm hoping postseason pretty because I'd love to you see those two teams meet material season. Yeah it'll be a blast totally agree all right so we had to move on to our other. We only have one of the current event because we want to talk a lot about steroids today but our other her other strange thing that happened this week so. I was talk about how baseball's kind of a Gamer weird things happen. You know you've got a around bat hidden around ball and you know a bog ahead of pebble. Go Oh every which direction things like that but it's not just on the field the strange things happen with the lineup card so you've got this thing with the red sox in the race so the headline that I have here in front of me. I have to read this because it is so complex that I can't just go off the top of my off memory because there's there's a lot of moving pieces here so the headline says Red Sox play game under protest after raise poll lineup trickery whole lot of trickery going on Tampa Bay. That's a great headline by the way it is a great headline anytime you can work trickery into. I'm a fan of that. I think Jim Jim would be proud of that. Headline Line. He will be proud of that. Strong strong words bold language words in the headline. Yep So for those of you who don't know about protests kind of a strange thing with with baseball that you can protest a call or something that happened in a game in this case something with the lineup cardis substitution and if and basically the protests kind of puts a bookmark in the game and they finish playing the game and then if Major League Baseball says okay yeah that was against the rules or that was inappropriate something like that you can go back and you can replay finish the game from that point the bookmark so I think it's kind of a cool thing baseball. Does it's almost like it was like rained out or inner. Put in a rain delay at that point. You can finish it later on a road trip or something yeah yeah. It doesn't happen very often though it doesn't I don't. I can't think of any time off the top of my head that it's that I've seen it actually happened. I've seen a lot of protests but I can't think give it actually come into right but anyway so what happened here was this this is the top of the eighth so the rays had relief relief pitcher. Adam caloric politics the name because I'm not sure if that's how he says it he replaced Starter Charlie Morton at at the beginning of the inning and then after getting Sam Travis of the Red Sox to pop out there the raise move clerk to first base replacing G. Man Choi Ji Man. I Love G. Man Yeah G. Man Best Name Baseball for sure Chas Rowe took over pitching he he got mookie. Betts looks he got McKee bets out and then cleric came back to pitch after bets after after row pitched bets so calera came back over from first base to pitch again and nate low moved first base so some black magic. It's black magic. I know it's it's that easy right so you brought this up earlier. That's Joe Madden crap right there. Yes so this is and this is why. I think this isn't super complicated. If you just think about it this way Clark was brought in to pitch. He faced a batter and then the raise managers cited. I like the match up of this pitcher so but I wanNA keep caloric and later because I like the match up's going forward right. Clark first-base brought in a pitcher. That pitcher came out moved him back over. It's kind of a little league move think about something. The little league is not so much anymore that I know of but I know I used to have coaches like like the pitchers would stay in the game you just shuffling later like the might need you to pitch a little bit so he'd bring it back in so.
"steroids" Discussed on Bad Science
"We'll that's why I mean, a lot of these. Supplement comes in this why you know, performance enhancing drugs Cirta Volve, right? Bs. They're trying to do everything they can to win. Right. That kind of personality will do whatever they can. So let's talk about that for a second 'cause that's a huge. They didn't really talk about it in the film, why steroids around seventy seven there were around in Schwarzenegger does later on admit to using steroids. But says it wasn't really a big deal because, you know, everybody was it wasn't. It wasn't outlawed at the time, and it was just for trying it, there's that sense of like, in everyone's doing it at that's equaling the re it's real leveling the playing field of lagging. Yeah. None of us should be doing it. But we're all doing it a now, whatever we become that's the base level. Right. Being on steroids. Is the base level? Yeah, it was one guys doing it. That's like unfair invoked up. Yes. Well, that's, that's how it became like what happened to? That's how it evolved. I guess, because now they have these masking agents where they have to try and hide that they're using steroids. And so when people get. Caught. It's like a much bigger deal. But at that point, it was legal and he have a quote here. He said steroids were helpful to me in maintaining muscle size while on a strict diet in preparation for a contest. I did not use them for muscle growth, but rather for muscle maintenance, when cutting up he called the drugs, tissue building so many came, and there, that he said, hold on one second that, quote, has a variety of parts of that, quote that don't seem to make sense. Okay. Let's break. So he's using he's using testosterone, or steroids probably testosterone to not to increase muscle mass for maintenance, but they will say the builds builds tissue. Right. He called rebuilding tissue. Arctic building muscle mass probably you would. Oh, I know. So. So. So the. Yeah. So he was the size of those guys achieve. I'm not convinced can be achieved by the average individual without s- supplement with steroids and or anabolic steroids. Right. So, so he wasn't as using for either would just use using for maintenance. He was using to increase muscle mass. And, and once he's in, you know, continue to probably take it to keep that Muslim, you know that, that size but it clearly helped him get that big. So can you define for me? The difference is here like because I think you just mentioned that it he was using testosterone. I would assume as are some says Bannon type hormone some sort of one of the anabolic steroids. Okay. So that the growth hormone testosterone, these are types of anabolic steroids, anabolic, has meaning they build tissue that build muscle. They build protein, you know that the that they synthesize Burton's they synthesize. Proteins, are there different kinds or are we've kinda hitting all the corners here. Now there's a variety of anabolic steroids or. Or modifications of testosterone growth hormone that will then also be powerful agents for building muscle now. Okay. And 'cause I think Arnold is sort of resting on us, not all being scientists, and different professionals when it comes to building, your body was, like, nah, just for Titian raw, like omega protests. You got it. No, no, you. Okay. Mying wrong. Same deal. And what's the Email address for the guy that can get me these? Because I was just I want to get like super jacked up and not try that hard. Yeah. Because they look like they're in a ton of pain when they're working out the faces they may call their while. They're exercising, actually, making me sick, and I'm not being cute, right? When like I had just eaten. And then when they would like really make. I was like own like I can't be feeling like I'm going to vomit. Yeah. They look. So I mean, even to do that, there's a there's different things going on in the brain of that person. And then I guess that is why they say like separates the men from the boys are the champions from the regular people..

"But it is high in these these steroids wouldn't that suck getting like kicked out of your NCWA sanctioned sport for steroid? Use. All you're doing is picking ants out of the backyard. You report college student aboard the cafeteria food trying to imagine a explaining that to the board. Yeah, I swear it was ants. I haven't gone near Victor Kante anyways, though. So so ants are pretty pretty rich. And a lot of these also very. High in minerals. Surprisingly I in mineral, so you're getting something like a sea salt, zinc, essential, amino acid fatty acid a neutral pic- supplement when you use black at extract. I get it from this company called lost empire herbs, which would probably have to order from pretty quickly because it'll be a I think they were out of stock for like two months after the Joe Rogan episode, but a link to them in the in the show notes, they brag on their website that their compounds of not been found to have sildenafil or the active ingredient Viagra in them. So apparently at some point in the past somebody must have put in by with the ants for them to need to claim that or maybe that just gives you Boehner's out. No, I don't remember that being affect when I took it now about is going and getting it. Yeah. It has some vitamin C in some vitamin E in it in in. This is kind of the meat of the question that are tell asked is you know, it's touted as having anti-inflammatory. And antioxidative fact, and he knows that antioxidants can kind of perhaps blunt the Hormats affect of exercise now with and I'm just going to answer that question really quickly. But I wanna get on the soapbox about Hormuz here in general, but but the amount of vitamin c in vitamin E found in an extract is nowhere near we're talking like one tenth to one hundred the amount of synthetic high-dose vitamin c and vitamin E that was used in the few studies that have been shown that high dose vitamin c your vitamin E could could actually blunt the hormetic response to exercise. So you don't need to worry about the ant issue. But I would like to kind of dress this in a little bit greater detail. So hormesis, of course, this notion that low levels of stress can stimulate or up regulate. These different molecular pathways that would improve the capacity of cells or living organisms to withstand greater stress. So we're talking about anything like plant toxins or things that produce reactive oxygen species or sunlight, radiation or cold or heat or exercise or anything like that things that would kill you in large amounts or cause appreciable damage in large amounts can actually cause genetic adaptations and biochemical pathways to be expressed that make you stronger in small amount says the concept of this kind of originated in the sixteenth century when the Swiss physician perish else's propose that the dose determines that a thing is not a poison or solely the dose determines out of thing is not a poison then the term or Meese was coined back in the forties..

"On a Lloyd rhetorical president just rhetorical present with none of the traditional part. And that's what's really really striking about him. It's why he seems. So at least to me troubling. And also, it's why he so distinct, but it is as you say, you might say the rhetorical presidency on steroids or the ultimate combination of that way of thinking. So can you imagine a pure rhetorical president that was not objectionable or is the rhetorical presidency on steroids inherently demagogic? And I mean, that's what the founders would have called demagoguery or the Romans would have called demagoguery. And that you know, that we understand this way. Or is what makes Trump so sort of? Stink Wli peculiar in. This regard. It it's a mixture of the style of rhetoric and the use of rhetoric in the presidency. But also, the substance of what he's saying are those connected or are they discreet axes. Could you say little more about what you mean by the substance of what he said, well, I mean, so for example, could you imagine a presidency that was as relentlessly rhetorical? And you know, that partake of so little of the nineteenth century understanding of the presidency that was wholly conventional in policy terms, for example, that didn't partake of the, you know, the aspects of Trump's behavior that is so divisive, right? Or is that or is that an organic feature of the, you know, the making the rhetorical components of the presidency. The all. There is like the president's as the bully pulpit. And it's only the bully pulpit. Right. Well, there's there's sort of two questions there could I imagine a different kind of rhetorical presidency than one that is only the bully pulpit in the answer's yes. And I'll come back to that. But the second question slightly different question is if you are a rhetorical president and only a rhetorical president. Do you have to be like Trump, and that's a good question. I don't think that I've fully thought about I mean for one thing that the possibility of people being like Trump is certainly enhanced by having one, but I also like him, but I can also imagine that one of the problems for the policy going forward..

"Many of the dilemmas that presidents face before Trump like crises of confidence and credibility gaps and other things that people used to worry about with respect to the presidency could be traced to this sort of layer constitutional order in which the old ones. Still is there and presidents are sometimes pulled in hall between that old constitutional order and their self understanding born of Wilson that they should be out there campaigning Benjamin witness, and this is the law fair podcast, January twenty sixth two thousand nineteen on a flight to Israel recently. I sat down with a book that knocked my socks off the book was entitled the rhetorical presidency. It was by a political scientist named Jeffrey to list and while written in nineteen eighty seven. It taught me more about the developments that led to the Trump presidency than anything. I had read in a very long time. The book is an account of how the speaking style of presidents changed from the founding era through the nineteenth century and into the twentieth century, basically, everything we thought we knew about why presidents talk the way they do is wrong. And the book taught me that the hyper rhetorical style of Donald Trump where he's talking all the time is really an extension of developments that had been going on all through the twentieth century. I did what any red blooded American would do. I wrote Jeffrey tulips in Email, and I asked him to come on the law, fair podcast and talk about this extraordinary book, which seems to end -ticipant our current president to my surprise, he agreed to do it. And so we sat down, and we talked about it all it's the law. Fair podcast episode three hundred eighty six Jeffrey tulips on the rhetorical presence. On steroids. I wanna start with a little bit of flattery, which is I read your book on an airplane, and it was written in nineteen eighty seven and does not mention the name Donald Trump. And I felt like I learned more about Donald Trump from the rhetorical presidency than from any other single book. I've read on any subject including about him. So I wanna start by just asking you. How did you come to write a book about the Trump presidency back when nobody thought of Donald Trump as anything other than a New York real estate figure will I wasn't obviously thinking about Trump, but I was in graduate school. The book grew out of my dissertation wasn't published and perfected till about ten years after I graduated university of Chicago. But I was at university of Chicago where I was studying Herbst. Soaring, and I decided to do something about the presidency. And at the time, it seemed that the most interesting fact about the presidency was this practice of recent presidents of going to the public regularly and also thinking of their role increasingly as that being it's essential feature. And so I started thinking about that and reading the whole sort of history of the president's in realizing that that was actually something of a change. I might say by the way that that I- republish that the book was republished last year..

"Let's go to Allan Birmingham, Alabama east of the Rockies. Hello L. Go ahead. Yes. I was just wondering. Over fifty steroids out there that are good for you. Or they just all these steroids. Anything good out there? Couple kinds of steroids that we think that most of us are familiar with one is called anabolic steroids, and those are steroids that that helped the Bill muscle. Those are the things that and then they overdo overdo it. Exactly, right. You know athletes will do it. And those are it's not never good idea to Jack to to try Jack up your steroids system with anabolic steroids. That's first of all, but the kind of steroids most of us. Take us prescription drugs are steroids. That suppress the immune system, the shutdown the immune system, the logic being that the immune system causes inflammation, as we were saying earlier that when you're have a chronic disease. There's an inflammatory component steroids. Make wonderful anti-inflammatories, however, the body's inflammatory systems important and the immune system is important. And while it may be true that your immune system is responsible for inflammation. You don't want to shut down your. Immune system. That's like telling the army to stand down when there's an invader when you shut down the immune system, your high risk for all kinds of health challenges because you're immune system's your defense system. So no, there are no good steroids. Although there are times when steroids can be life, saving if you have a dramatic inflammatory or dramatic immune problem, you're some kind of shock going on. There are times when steroids can be lifesaving. That's for sure. But long-term USA steroids is to be discouraged. Absolutely. What do you think testosterone replacement therapy like messing.

"The I'm more show and just a fabulous wonderful around person, George. Dow was back Georgia. Hey, I think I should talk a little bit cooler just to to deal with how cool aunt sounds good. Going to talk a little bit lower. Gosh. More. Listen over here. We're all professionals here. Clearly all right now, we're all doing our voices. I'll go ahead and kick things off, you know, how the show works for people for tectonics et cetera. My question there was a recent Recode report that says that voice Tech- hasn't really found. It's true calling the idea that you know, we have all of these things, and they sort of are glomming onto the idea of talking with your voice. But really all we're doing is just like building voice as a new interface for things that we already do. But until voice kind of does its own thing. It's not there. My question for you is do you think voice tech is the future? Or are. We still looking for that next sort of interface interaction tack aunt we'll start with you. I think it is the future. And I think it's the future because these companies are trying to make it the future. I don't think is. A requirement or anything. But I do see the good use cases for for people that have assessable concerns issue. So I get it. We're not there yet. But I do like what I see from some some of the different tech companies out there with harder trying to integrate voice into I everyday day lives other than speaking. Yeah. I agree. I don't think I would say qualified. It's a future. I don't think it's the only interface that will be dealing with going forward. We're not even on even on Star Trek. They still had like buttons that they pressed every once in a while and use their voice all the time. But I think it's it's not quite there yet. I can't said like, it's we it's made some things easier. But as anybody who has an echo or any of these other smart devices. No once you go past a certain depth with like the complexity of your requests, you start to get in over your head very very quickly. So it's great for certain quick shortcuts. Like, I still use my eco every day to check the weather or to set timers and stuff like that. None of those are complicated tasks, I would love it. If there was a more intelligent construct in there that could act more like a real assistant in like, I come home until like, oh, you got some messages here, which like me turn these lights on and cetera. Like it's getting closer to that. But we haven't yet gotten to the point where it's more sophisticated than say, probably your pets. So that's kind of my feeling on it. What about you? Well, you know when it works. It's sublime me casualty requesting something and Siri taking care of my needs. It's lovely when it doesn't work. It's like this violent explosion like arguing with a belligerent platypus on steroids, by the way, I'm the platypus in this scenario, of course, is calm and serene through it all which really ends up just making me so angry. I start calling Siri names that I cannot repeat. So use your imagination. You know, you've done it. I'm not the only one..
