"Of global health directors odd Omar welcome My pleasure Setting aside the specifics of these travel restrictions can you say broadly whether shutting down flights can be an effective response in a pandemic Well certainly non fights can work theoretically to only delay the arrival of a significant virus Moreover in order for travel ban to work it has to be really early And it has to be so drastic as to shut down all travel into a country by 90 to 95% So yes theoretically it can work but it can't be a selective ban of flights from a few countries and it can be at a time when this current travel ban happened We know now that even though the omicron variant was first identified in South Africa there was research suggesting that it was already in Europe at that point So what did you think when you heard President Biden announced these restrictions on travel from 8 countries in Southern Africa I was a bit surprised The ban even in the early part was a bit perhaps unwarranted because it was unlikely to even delay the arrival of the virus which was the rationale given Because it wasn't shutting down and for understandable reasons 1995% of the traffic coming into the U.S. it was only focusing on a few countries when even there were very early indications that the virus was already in multiple countries On top of that as part of the concern is that this is not a policy without cost because if we know that it discourages countries from reporting a new variants and it's in all our interest to find out not just the existence but the intensity of circulation of any new variant Here we are now seeing leaders in Southern Africa saying we're basically being punished for having been good global citizens doing the science reporting the new strain because of these travel bans So do you think that as the pandemic continues other countries where new perhaps more dangerous strains might emerge could be less likely to reveal that to the world having seen what happened in South Africa Yeah that's the fear Because if you think about it if you are a health minister in Central Africa and you are seeing some initial data and you have that incentive to say why do I have to be the first one to report Because if I do so I will face domestic pushback for being a little too naive to report this and then having restrictions imposed on my country Selectively the selectiveness of that ban is very concerning to a lot of these countries and sets of really bad examples Last year the U.S. banned travel from China where the virus first emerged and then we saw many coronavirus cases come to the U.S. from Europe And so do you think we could see something similar here with the omo cron variant We'd already seen that So it's like not only closing the barn door after the horse has left the barn It's closing the barn door in the next farm over It's not rational to do so and it has cost so yes we can see a similar phenomenon here Are there things you think the U.S. could do in terms of international travel that would help limit the amount of crime coming over from other countries short of sealing the borders and not letting anybody in Yeah there are a few things the U.S. can do more rational and stringent testing in terms of both testing on departure and arrival and quarantine for a select number of individuals perhaps not everyone And making sure that during the travel people are safe and there's a low probability of infection For example by making sure that there's a masking requirement it's okay to add on top of testing or actually desirable to add vaccination requirement but the long-term solution we can't get out of this pandemic at least without a lot of harm without vaccinating high numbers of people all around the world There's no shortcut to that Epidemiologists saw Omar is director of the Yale institute of global health Thanks for talking with us My pleasure The earliest evidence of humans walking upright are fossilized footprints They were left by someone walking through the mud nearly 3.7 million years ago and now it looks like that early human did not walk alone and fears no Greenfield boys reports that researchers have taken a new look at some other ancient tracks Walking on two legs is a distinctively human thing to do It seems to make us different than other living primates It's a very strange way of kind of moving through the world Ellison mcnutt is a biological anthropologist at the Ohio university heritage college of osteopathic medicine She studies upright walking and says most four legged creatures find it challenging If you imagine asking your dog to do that they're really wobbly they're really uncomfortable They don't want to do that Yet humans did it early in their history For example at one site in Tanzania a volcanic eruption over three and a half million years ago covered the landscape with ash and preserved all kinds of tracks that have been left in the mud So we're talking elephants and bunnies birds all kinds of things walked across this landscape and they left these amazing footprints including one set of footprints that look quite human And this trackway has been reconstructed to belong to a hominin on early human ancestor called australopithecus afarensis And this is the same species that the quite famous fossil Lucy belongs to Now when these were discovered back in the 1970s workers also found a track of 5 footprints that looked more mysterious Researchers speculated that these prints were created by a small bear walking upright They were tentative about it and acknowledged that we don't have a good answer for this This is a reasonable answer Bears do stand up and walk upright Mcnutt had actually been studying how bears do that when she came across a mention of these fossil tracks which had been mostly forgotten for decades She and her colleagues decided to reexamine them using modern technology They did detailed comparisons to footprints left by humans chimpanzees and young bears living at a sanctuary We ended up with four little juvenile bears that we had stand up and walk through mud for either applesauce or maple syrup as they're rewarded at the end of it Their results appear in the journal nature and it turns out the fossil footprints just aren't bear like Instead there's signs of more human like features such as a big toe Mcnutt says it looks like there were two early human species walking around back then In fact they could have seen each other go by The nature of fossil footprints and how these trackways are made is that they're in the same layer of mud So these are likely made within the scale of hours to days from one another All of this has convinced Stephanie melillo She's a paleoanthropologist at the Max Planck institute for evolutionary anthropology in Germany We see there the presence of two different kinds of hominid ancestors together in the same environment in the same place at the same time She says one of the biggest questions about human evolution is why our ancestors started walking upright And I don't think that we really have a good answer to.
Even the WHO Criticizes Joe Biden's Africa Travel Ban
"You know the Asian Psaki chili and sake why is this Peter doocy from Fox News How come this isn't racist but when Trump did it was racist and she said well Peter I think it has something to do with president Trump the tweet that Donald Trump said or something like that Now give me a break Look either travel bans are racist or they're not racist They can't be wonder Well it's racist when a Republican does it not racist when a Democrat does it And the World Health Organization even said this travel ban is stupid It's not even do anything And the next time a country finds a variant they're not going to want to tell anybody because they're going to know they're going to get punished by some political hack in Washington who just wants to try to show people that they're doing something even though it does nothing I mean there's nothing Come on you know that I know that If it was so dangerous they would have put the travel ban in place that day Instead they go it's really bad So we're gonna put a travel ban in next week So travel now well you can Smoke them if you got them I'm so
Fresh update on "travel ban" discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"Adult ovarian. And we'll move forward in the face of all Macron variant as well. First and foremost, this was a speech that was a bit of a marketing campaign to get boosted if you're fully vaccinated. Some 100 million eligible Americans have not yet received their booster shot. Joe Biden was on a mission today to try and bring that number down. Of course, he also urged those Americans not yet fully vaccinated with their initial doses to do so. Biden and his COVID team continue to hope that an omicron specific booster shot won't be needed that the vaccines already in existence will provide enough protection against this latest variant, but he did say that he and his team are working with pharmaceutical companies to develop a variant specific vaccine, just in case it is required. Biden also acknowledged today that the travel ban he put in place just beginning on Monday of this week due to the spread of the omicron variant, is just a measure to try and buy some time. And the president made clear that there are going to be new protocols in place for testing for all incoming international travelers to the United States, including U.S. citizens. All inbound international travelers must test within one day of departure regardless of their vaccination status or nationality. This type of testing timetable provides an added degree of protection as scientists continue to study the elbow crown variant. And if you're planning on flying or using public transportation, you will be doing so in a mask, at least through mid March, the Biden administration has extended the mask mandate. But as you heard at the top of the podcast, Biden's real regret that politics has taken over here in terms of COVID management, was very much on display, and there was a brand new Kaiser family foundation poll out today that I think sort of underscores exactly where we are and what you see up on Capitol Hill with this fight over government funding. 85% of Democrats according to this survey are fully vaccinated. 55% of Republicans are fully vaccinated. That 30 point spread shows you how much our politics is defining how we are combating.
Joe Biden's Africa Travel Ban Is All for Show, for the Media
"How many times yesterday did President Biden botch the term oh Macron He made up a new word Omni Kron Omni Kron which is like a transformer or maybe a bad guy in the new Avengers movie Omni Kron And did any one of the media call him out on it Nope Not at all He's banned travel from 7 African nations And all the nations in Africa turned around to the exact same thing Why are you doing this to us What are you doing here Why are you doing this President of South Africa came out and said this is crazy I mean we found the virus we sequenced the variant We told you about it Why are you shutting us down All this is going to do is hurt us economically You imagine if Trump did that to 7 countries in Africa Could you just imagine the media outrage Maybe asking what do you think these are S whole countries mister president Biden gets a pass even though the travel ban comes in three days after busy holiday weekend People are traveling all over the world from these countries to other countries and then back here in the United States of America but it's so dangerous to travel ban can wait until Monday Right So it says nothing to keep us safe Nothing at all And everybody knows that It's your show but the thing is the media just lets him get away

Fresh update on "travel ban" discussed on Hysteria
"I remember very, very distinctly that there was a time when there was a travel ban from Iran, even though there were more confirmed cases in Italy and there was no travel ban from Italy. And you just mentioned a bunch of other countries where the new variant has been identified and as far as I know there's no travel bans from every single one of those countries, which tells you that the reaction is always to blame the messenger. It's like exactly what you said that South Africa it might not even have originated in South Africa. They were the first to identify it, right? And so I think that this travel bans can be very dangerous because it can incentivize countries in the future from identifying new strands because they're probably going to think, okay, this will be a travel ban for my country, which has economic implications for them. Two, I think that it will, it makes people feel like you're safe. Like, okay, well, they're not letting people in from this country, where it originated, even though it didn't necessarily originate there. And I think it makes people feel safe when they shouldn't. Really, if we want to be safe, we know the answer. We know that it's not travel Vance at save the day. It's vaccines. So people and Chastain and testing. So people should continue to get vaccinated should get the booster if they are eligible to get the booster and I think that that brings me to my final point on this, which is that what this really shows to me is that vaccination efforts have to be viewed as a global effort. Because you mentioned sort of low vaccination rates in the continent of Africa. And here's the thing. Rich countries have a responsibility to help countries with less resources. Especially when things when it comes to things like vaccines because we know that if there is a new variant somewhere else around the world, it's going to end up in the United States. So like selfishly, we should want to help other countries get their vaccination rates up because and it's not me saying this. It's like medical experts who have said this, as long as there is a low rate of vaccination around the world, there's going to be new variants. And they're going to be more aggressive. They're going to be more infectious. So yeah, the answer to all of this really just comes down to vaccinations testing. And these travel bans really don't do anything and I'm really disappointed that the United States is following suit and also issued a travel ban because we know from the last administration that they don't do anything to stop the spread. Well, and that once the virus is known, it's probably already here. And so, you know, I think that I think that's such a good point. Hopefully, I mean, it looks like word from the administration is that this is hopefully very temporary move and they just wanted to put the ban in place to allow the U.S. to prepare for a Macron, which I guess means double down on vaccination efforts..

The Hypocrisy of Joe Biden's African Travel Ban Versus President Trump's Travel Ban
"Just confirmed that everything you think about what we're witnessing with the Biden administration is true.

We're at a point where it's not even satirical anymore. You know the news about this new army Kron variant and South Africa. So what's Biden do? He bans travel from South Africa. Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden.

In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed.

Our Oligarchs Are So Full of Paradoxes, You’d Almost Think They Were Idiots
"And we're going to get back to John's Muir act like right now. John? Thanks, Alvin. Well, my next article is called our oligarchs are so full of paradoxes. You would almost think they're idiots. But I'm talking about my fellow Yale grads. I'm not going to my reunion next time I've never gone to any of them and is a very good reason to that. I'm glad to be away from all those people. I moved to Texas, so I don't have to live near any of them. I certainly don't want to go to Connecticut and visit them again. But I do get to see them and feel them and hear from them because they're running the country. They're mostly white, mostly from very wealthy or upper middle class families. They've inherited wealth and privilege. And now they've appointed themselves as the tribunes who will stick up for the underprivileged. For the needy for the helpless for the people that they stay far away from and their gated communities and their ultra 1% zip codes of San Francisco and New York, they never see anybody who's not wealthy unless they're cutting their lawn or taking care of their 1.2 children. But they do know that the people between the very poor and themselves the very rich are disgusting filthy racists who are full of hatred and bias and bitterness and need to be disempowered and disenfranchised and controlled and vaccinated and brainwashed and guided and directed. Need to have their children taken away from them as soon as possible and raised by the state to believe in the same things as the elite, because they really don't want to go through the bother of having their own children. They want to take offs. So in my piece it's stream dot org. I talk about how is it that we get such a monopoly of opinion? How is it that America's elites, America's oligarchy?

Why Dr. Anthony Fauci Should Step Aside
"One. Kimberly johnson who i've never heard of. But she has got seventy seven thousand followers. She is apparently the host of the start. Me up paycock podcast and the sexy liberal podcast network So i i find that amusing. She writes it's time for the washington post to stop allowing traders like hewitt spread propaganda and misinformation packaged as conservative opinion. She's reacting to my column in the washington post which went up on the landing page yesterday after the show. Is it time for dr patchy to step aside. This has touched nerves on the far left. I don't know why. But i have a theory. My theory is pretty simple. Dr chee is not a public health official in there is he is a brave hero against donald trump now dot not dr vouch e throughout the first year of covet. Dr chee was part of the covet response team. I know there's very well. 'cause i know a lot of people on the code response team very very well including ambassador. O'brien alex as our in peter. Navarro and many many people very well on that team and doctor thought was a respected and productive member of the team doctor. Fawzi opposed the travel ban from china. Dr she wanted to tell the noble lie. That mask were not helpful because doctor was afraid. That masks would vanish from the ers and hospitals. Where they were necessary. It's actually the opposite of what. Americans did touching mrs hewitt for example. Took every mask. We have in the house as a matter of routine preparedness in california and drove them to the local hospital where they were ninety five match. Because that's what americans do. And so dr has consistently underestimated what americans doing gets it wrong. And while he does not run the cdc or fdi pointed out. He's become the face of pandemic response in the united states. and before as even when maybe. i'm not sure. We can gather by christmas which he walked back on monday
Will There Be a Travel Ban for the Unvaccinated?
"It's a very interesting question which i am surprised that vegas doesn't have betting odds on this. Will there be a ban on travel for the non-vaccinated the interesting thing is that. I suspect that Most vaccinated people will have would be in favor of it. Is you think i'm right. Most vaccinated people had a vote. They would ban from travel. You can't go anywhere on train bus. Or i wonder what they would. They hold that true for the subway. Which is you're far. More packed. Together than anywhere would they. Would they say that on the subway in new york as well. There was a real anger. That is being fostered by people who thrive on hatred of some selma. There has to be a group of americans to hate for the left of allies. life is not filled. so it's not fulfilling right if you voted for trump. you're hated so that's half the country and hate it. I hate it. I i can say on on the bible that i don't hate people who voted for joe biden. I think that they were foolish. And naive and destructive. But i don't hate them a lot of nice people who made a very destructive decision makes people often do harm so but they hate people who voted for trump and the vaccinated. Benny of them hate people who are not vaccinated

Call For US Federal Government To Make Vaccination Mandatory for Air Travel
"A quick link over on cocky dot org yesterday. That really got me thinking. It's a piece in the atlantic by juliet. Kayem former assistant secretary for homeland security. During the obama administration basically arguing that the us federal government should make it a requirement for people to be vaccinated in order to travel on airplanes now while she cops that most airplanes filtration systems make transmission on the plane itself fairly rare. The bigger concern she says is transmission in airports and then wherever people are traveling to pointing out that the whole reason for international travel bans is to reduce spreads so is in our huge country with disparate state governments at similar risk and according to a recent new york times and kaiser family foundation pull that she shared forty one percent of people who said they were waiting to see about getting a vaccine would get one if they had to do so to travel even eleven percent of respondents who were entirely opposed to getting. The vaccine said they'd be swayed by travel ban quoting. I am the public debate. Making vaccination a precondition for travel employment and other activities as described this approach as vaccine mandates a term that to critics suggests that unvaccinated people are being ordered around arbitrarily. What is actually going on. Mostly is that institutions are shifting burdens to unvaccinated people denying them access to certain spaces requiring them to take regular cove in nineteen tests charging them for the cost of that testing rather than imposing greater burdens on everyone americans still have a choice to go unvaccinated but that means giving up on certain societal benefits.

What <Speech_Male> does that say about al <Speech_Male> sort of constitutional <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> arrangements to yes. <Speech_Female> I do. think <Speech_Female> that's an excellent question <Speech_Female> I might <Speech_Female> say that. <Speech_Female> There was <Speech_Female> an attempt <Speech_Female> in israel <Speech_Female> which is also a democratic <Speech_Female> frame rule <Speech_Female> of law country english <Speech_Female> traditions in its legal <Speech_Female> system. The <Speech_Female> government did <Speech_Female> try to do a similar <Speech_Female> thing there <Speech_Female> and it was challenged <Speech_Female> in the courts <Speech_Female> and successfully <Speech_Female> challenge so <Speech_Female> the the supreme <Speech_Female> court in israel struck <Speech_Female> down as unconstitutional. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> But i think the point is <Speech_Female> as you <Speech_Female> alluded to there. <Speech_Female> And i've <Speech_Female> also <Speech_Female> Raised <Speech_Female> in our earlier <Speech_Female> discussion <Speech_Female> that we do not <Speech_Female> actually have clarity <Speech_Female> of <Speech_Male> not only citizenship <Speech_Female> as the status <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> a like a frame <Speech_Female> of understanding <Speech_Female> of our relationship <Speech_Female> between the individual <Speech_Female> and the state <Speech_Female> because citizenship <Speech_Female> and the term <Speech_Female> citizen wasn't <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> terminology <Speech_Female> at the time of of <Speech_Female> the writing of the constitution. <Speech_Female> So we're <Speech_Female> all british subjects <Speech_Female> at that time <Speech_Female> and then over <Speech_Female> time that changed. <Speech_Female> But i think that <Speech_Female> uh the point is actually <Speech_Female> significant.

"Okay so being articulate and persuasive and knowing how to call in your local knowing about the three month away rule of thumb and having the time and money for a specialist boy a do all seem to be crucial factors in being able to be with your dying relative in the cases carne is aware of that is how it's looking which you would imagine does restrict which kinds of people can actually do this right. Yeah absolutely so not only. Is it starting to look like a pretty arbitrary and unfair system but it's also caught the interest of legal scholars. And when we say that we mean they've been questioning whether it's actually constitutional and legal to do this at all right. So our next call was dr kim rubinstein. She's professor in the faculty of business government and law at the university of canberra and she says the lord that the federal government has used to issue. The blanket travel ban is something called the biosecurity act which the parliament paused onto. Some of its constitutional powers comes back to some fundamental questions about the way governments have powers to make laws in any context so we obviously live in a federal system and in nineteen hundred one win. Our constitution was formed. A lot of the thinking was about who has power over different areas of regulation and the federal government through six and fifty. One of the constitution has broad power over a range of different topics including quarantaine. But at any point win governments to make laws Lawyers and individuals should think. We'll is this low properly within the power that it is seeking to us and one of the questions is when are restricting. People leaving the country does that necessarily actually properly within that fit within that quarantine power. So that's one question and now the ease external affairs that's one of the heads of power And that power has been upheld by the courts to give the komo of powers immolation to any international treaties. That australia is a party to and you can see. In the by security at reference to the world health organization and various treaties that australia has entered into but again the more on that is that any legislation that flows from that has to be directly. Refer back to the terms of that treaty. But i would. I would imagine the komo is also relying on that as a head of power right so basically there are two different pows that the government could argue. It's using he to ban travel. There's the power to make laws about quarantine and then there's the power to make laws because of international treaties that australia has signed up to but in either case is kim says just because the government has the power to make laws it's not unlimited and in fact in the biosecurity act itself. Which is what's being used here. There's an extra pot specifying that the minister will only take measures which are the least restrictive to keep the community safe. Yeah and kim says in the case of the travel ban. it's not clear. Cut that it fits within those limitations. How would anyone go about challenging it. So any individual who is personally affected by any government decision arguably can go into a court and seek to challenge the lawfulness of that so in principle if you are a person who is wanting to leave the country and you are prevented from doing so you have what is called. Standing of the court will listen to an application from you as an individual impacted and affected by that decision. There's a practical aspect though about it. Which is that. Of course you've got to have the wherewithal as in both the time and the financial capacity to to make an application before court that as an even if you have solicitors embarrasses who are prepared to act for you without a fee or pro bono. There is also the danger that if you're unsuccessful the commonwealth will then have its costs awarded against you so there is a financial risk for individuals and the other aspect is that it has to be alive matter like you do have to be affected. So that if you've applied and then the government lighter allows you to leave will then you no longer have an action because you no longer affected so the timing issue. I think i'm aware of several people who have sought to think have thought about Leave the of challenging of van but then have managed to get their exemption and so it's no longer relevant to them so essentially. It's an unanswered question. It could actually be unconstitutional for the government to have this blanket banning place. It's just anyone that might be minded challenge. It has is intimidated by how expensive that would be or has managed to work around that in their individual circumstances. That's that's right now. I should note that there has been one case in the federal court in relation to the ban by a group called. Liberty works but they didn't challenge the constitutionality of us they just Challenged a more narrow public low points and they were unsuccessful on that narrow point. But as far as i'm aware i'm not You know. I don't think the broad constitutional question has been raised all the Specific aspect. That i just spoke about where the of an argument that this is not the least restrictive measure available for maintaining the hills and security by.

Yeah and obviously us not being able to go on. A foreign holiday is a long way from the worst thing about australia's unique and ongoing travel ban.

I understand that you wanted to use a different name for this interview. When we use it in the podcast you have a preference for what name we should call you by john. Care okay. all right we'll come up with something it'll be it'll be sasha area so especially whereabouts. Do you leave usually in australia. I live in brunswick in melbourne. Okay and can i ask you a citizen permanent resident. What's your status. I'm a citizen yet. Okay and the soul citizenship in australia. No i have citizenship In israel as well. Okay okay and. What was your reason for wanting to leave. Australia of got family of essays and they called me up in a crisis. My aunt rang from hospital and said she was having a cardiac episode which turned out not to be a cardiac episode. Thankfully because it took me a couple of months to get there So she's Pushing eighty she's holocaust survivor. Lives a lawyer in But she's also the sole keira for adult disabled son who's almost sixty and nor family buying very little support me by And she rang me up with this new. So i i rushed to come over but yeah it took me two months Okay so in sasha's case she did eventually manage to leave the country although she says she got the news that her aunt was unwell about a year ago and it was well into august by the time she could actually get on a plane and it wasn't straightforward. You must've applied straightaway. I imagine so. Yeah in june of twenty twenty is that right. I think it was towards end of june. I kind of got my papers together and figured out what i needed to do. applied as soon as i could and i was rejected twice. So let's go back to the first rejection you got so you applied and and you must have thought you know you had a pretty good shot given the situation right. Yeah absolutely i. I thought it'd be pretty clear caught. I explained everything. I explained that there really wasn't any support anywhere else by that. I was close to my family and that they were in dire medical emergency so they how did you find out that you'd bain rejected. How did that needs come to you. I got an email within a couple of days. And what did it say Eat said that that I was rejected because it was likely that someone else closer geographically could help like they'd be another family or associate And was there any kind of wriggle-room there with a hod. No it was a hard. No when the second time i applied i provided a lot more evidence about why they wasn't anyone else and the response was yellow was pretty much. We've looked at your evidence. And we still think they could some be someone else who can do this sir. No how feeling at this point after making not one but two attempts the second one we quite a bit of You know evidence attached and still being knocked back. I was very desperate. I was really getting very upset. I had no idea what to do. What was studying to wreck my brain about How else to go about this it. I didn't think that the evidence was at all questionable with it. Seemed like a pretty clear cut case of what it was asking for. it wasn't a spurious reason. I wasn't going potty or anything. It was really quite upsetting. I was stressed for ages. And so in this moment of desperation at you within what did you do. Did you kind of recruit any outside help bowl. What steps did you take. I started asking around. I've spoke to a little contacts. I know who have all kinds of experiences in the world that i'd aren't and Almost everyone said go and talk to your mp which surprised me. I actually didn't think that that level of government had that much if it Someone else put me in touch with Lawyers that largely due immigration law. And i ended up going down bush those parks or now as we said already one or both of those people such as actually not sure which one did end up during the trick. In this case she got the exemption on her third attempt and she made it to israel to help a family. And while sasha's local mp he's a labor backbencher called pd khalil may have been the key. We were more interested to know about that other lever that she used the lawyer yes so we looked her up. Her name is karen anderson and she's a senior solicitor and a principal at melbourne firm. Called claudia anderson immigration lawyers and she says in her experience once seemingly quite random detail in applications seems to make them more likely to succeed. How would you describe the system that we have the dealing with people who who want to leave the country. He want to travel overseas at the moment. Yes so outbound. Travel restrictions limit australian permanent residents and citizens from leaving australia without permission. The permission is granted by australian border force and must be made in the form of a statutory declaration and contain a considerable amount of evidence including florida. Tannery confirmation of leave from employment for at least three months And doctors certificates or any other evidence relevant to the reasons for seeking that exemption the grounds for the outbound exemption very limited. and it's. it's quite a difficult process to go through. And how hard and fast is the three month rule. I mean what if you you know. You have a sikh parent or something overseas and you don't know how long are you going to go but maybe it will be less than three months. Can you be let out in a situation like that. My experience is no that the department is really quite rigid. On the three months rule to the point where people are having to remain out of the country for three months and make arrangements to be away for that period unnecessarily and in order to get the exemption. So you've just found that people are just getting knocked back. If they're not able to satisfy that sort of three month issue they are and regardless of how compelling the natives to travel if not going to be gone for three months. They.

"Was sworn in beijing slapped sanctions on more than two dozen. Us officials from the trump administration. Another complicated issue with china is this. I'm honored to me here today. On behalf of the people government of taiwan at the inauguration of the united states president biden. That's become shout. The defacto ambassador from taiwan. Her attendance at the inauguration might seem remarkable but beijing can't be happy about it to talk through what's going on with china relations at the start of the biden era. We turn to bonnie glaser. She's with the center for strategic and international studies in washington. Bonnie that statement we just heard from taiwan's representative to the. Us came directly from her twitter. Feed house china's going to view. That well i think that china is concerned about the direction of us policy toward taiwan particularly because of the trump administration took many actions to strengthen relations with taiwan in a very very public way and beijing undoubtedly would like to reverse that process and to at least what was done under prior administrations with a wizard narrow interpretation of us one china policy and unofficial relationship that the united states has with taiwan. I believe china will put pressure early on on the biden administration to provide greater clarity about the boundaries of what the us will do and will not do with taiwan. What about the sanctions. That beijing has placed on us officials from the trump administration. What is that about will the sanctions that china has declared that will apply to twenty eight former trump administration officials are really to express china's dissatisfaction with the fact that these individuals criticized chinese policy toward hong kong and also strengthened ties with taiwan. And i think this is aimed in part of the chinese domestic audience. They want to demonstrate to the chinese people that the chinese communist party is protecting china's interest. It's also to deter other countries from challenging chinese interests from criticizing its policies. Then thirdly it's also a signal to the biden administration to not follow in the path of the trump administration. The chinese government said it looks forward to working with the biden administration on climate change. How much potential is there for mutual cooperation. This is the one area that the obama administration did make some progress with china. And there is i think recognition that china's just huge emitter of the missions and it has the desire and its own interests and didn't jinping stated that china will become a carbon neutral country by twenty sixty and so there is potential to work together. What about president. Trump's trade war with china. I mean the two nations have a lot of tariffs in place that are making life more difficult for american businesses. What do you think we'll have their. The biden administration has made it clear that the tariffs that were imposed by the trump administration will not be lifted early on so my expectation is that they will be examined in the context of broader negotiations with china. I help there will be any new tariffs but over time there may be lifting tariffs in my view. The existence of the tariffs give president biden some leverage over china and so it would not be wise to lift them unilaterally as someone very well versed in. Us china relations. What do you think is the most important issue with china facing the biden administration. I think that the biggest challenge that the united states faces is that china assesses the international situation and the global balance of power. As in its favour they see that the pandemic has accelerated china's rise and the decline of the united states. And there is this phrase that is being tossed around in beijing. the east is rising. The west is declining. So i think that the biden administration has to change that calculus and china to make them understand that the united states is not down and out. We are not permanently in declined because if china basis its foreign policy decisions on that assessment i think it will become even more risk accepting it will try to push more aggressive policy of shaping the regional and maybe even the international order in ways that serve chinese interests and are damaging to american interests. Bonnie glaser from the center for strategic and international studies. Thanks a lot. Thank you south korea.

Thank you so much for being here on the show. I'm delighted to be here. So Katie we serve with you. Give us the basics here. What does it take to actually be an astronaut at NASA? Well I'm going to start by saying less than you think you know. It's it's so many people so many more people are qualified than apply. And basically you need right now. A master's degree in a stem field or the equivalent is and plus some experience in your field and there's so many people that have actually those qualifications that don't apply and amongst them. I'm going to say a lot of women and minorities and so I'm really so happy that you're talking about on your program so that maybe we can get the word out that basically spaces for everyone and I'll say wow spaces for women.

It was always very clear to me that if people could only realized that they're all in the same place in their all from the same place. We could solve anything so why. What's up of unique challenges? Do Women face in applying first of all realizing that their names and their qualifications belong on those applications in that they would be amazing astronauts and Actually I would sort of throw it to to marry robinet in that. I think part of the reason that doesn't happen enough. That qualified women and minorities don't apply is that they don't necessarily see themselves in those roles and part of that is because whenever they watch. Tv or advertisements or read books. They seldom see themselves in those roles. Mary how are you conquering that Think that she's absolutely right We're starting to see that shift Films like hidden figures reminded people that Women have been involved especially African. American women have been involved with the space program since very very early on but a lot of the early science fiction was written by men for men. You've got characters like Wilma deering in in Buck Rogers A. And it's not until later that you start to have women that are in leadership roles and and I think that's one of the things that happens with women. We hear this in a lot of different fields that we tend to self select ourselves out even when we're qualified but the other aspect of it is that When you're thinking about the women who are entering the field now The average age of a woman in tring NASA for as an astronaut or the average age of an astronaut is about thirty eight. And and when you think about the way culture was leading up to that point and and all of the barriers that were in place twenty years ago When women were entering the various stem fields. You see the the number of different things that kind of stood between them and getting the job experience. They needed to be qualified. Now so one of the things that I can do is a science fiction. Writer and other people in media can do is to try to to increase that representation to remind women that that these are options And also to train men and the other people in the workplace around them that that these are options that The you don't have to go with this one particular image in your head Katie has this great story about her son. Seeing a picture of an astronaut that I think is completely on point about this eighty. Can you share the story briefly? My son who's now nineteen and I think asleep but anyways it was when he was about four and there was a giant cutout. I was at some event and he came with me. And there's a giant cut out of you know a person in a spacesuit and it's really kind of hard to see that who that person is and he says Mommy as you said no that one's not me and he goes full then if it's not you whose mommy is it I love. He grew up in a different world. Marijuana are there any particular strengths that women bring to the field? So it's interesting question. There's a couple of different areas Historically that women have tested better than men We tend to say we even though I am not actually qualified in any way shape or form to be an astronaut because I am not in the stem fields But we tolerate higher. Jeez than men do Some of that has to do simply with stature but it's it is very useful thing when launching the other thing. That's been interesting. Historically is that women do much better on stress tests when the mercury thirteen Which worthy or the first women lady asked our first lady astronaut trainees We're going through the same mercury tests that the men did. They performed on the stress tests. Magnitudes better than the men. A one example is the they had sensory deprivation and the record for a man. Was I think three hours? They had to stop the test. After nine hours because She had just fallen asleep. Wait a minute. She fell asleep after nine. She was yes it was. She was just like sensory deprivation. This is nice at one of them was one of them was a mother of eight and I kind of imagined that in her head. She's like so. When is this test? GonNa Start Briefly What excites you? Most about Nasr's future. It's the fact that we are absolutely exploring further main going back to the moon going on to Mars. I mean this is. This is our place in one thing. I learned from going to spaces that I always thought space was somewhere else but actually it belongs to all of us and there's no question that people and we have to bring all of them really all the different kinds of people they are the ones and we are the ones that will explore it all starts with an application and I can only beg everyone who dreams of going and being part of it fill out that application. Celebrate who you are. Katie Coleman is a former NASA astronaut and Mary Rubber Net Koalas a science fiction writer and the author of the Lady Astronaut Series. Thank you so much for joining.

You've heard that advice it'll help you avoid being infected with the corona virus and passing it onto your friends and family but not everyone has enough water to wash their hands according to the latest. Census Bureau data roughly one point six million people in the. Us Don't have access to a working toilet shower or running water in their homes. In fact since two thousand fourteen the city of Detroit Michigan has enforced an aggressive policy to shut off water access for residents. Who Don't pay their bills just last year. Detroit shut the water off in more than twenty three thousand homes and as of this January more than one third of them still could not turn the faucet on for water to wash their hands now in response to the grown virus outbreak. The city of Detroit along with the State of Michigan. They're both taking emergency steps. They both plan to restore water access. Here's Detroit mayor. Mike Duggan speaking to the press on March ninth. So if you get a water shut off notice Mueller and your door you contact us and you'll be in a twenty five dollar plan to keep the water on if you water off contact us and for twenty five dollars. It'll be turned back. We think we put us in a position where everybody should be able to afford it but governor Whitman said. I don't want to be any question and the state of Michigan. It said for the next thirty days. The State will pay the twenty five dollars. Detroit is one of several cities including Seattle and Atlanta that have announced plans to ease the rules surrounding water shut offs because of Cova nineteen while advocates. Say This is an important first step. Many argue long-term policies need to be geared towards avoiding water? Shot off in the first place in a laconic is an environmental justice reporter for the Guardian. Us She's with us now. Thanks for being here Nina Epilepsy. Are you heard mayor? Mike duggan outlined the plan for Detroit residents this month. You have a sense of how many people have had their water turned back on. Because of the pandemic in the first two days of this implementation plan. They only managed to turn on wall to the seventy three households. It was low because what they say is that they're having to spend a long time at many people's houses because I have to install meters. I seventy three people out of how many. How many are we talking about? They don't actually have order. The numbers are always very confused in especially from Detroit. What the city told me yesterday as of two thousand and nine thousand nine eight pro? They turned off the water for three thousand. Six hundred occupied homes civil larger number twenty. Three thousand they say includes a lot of homes that had been abandoned so even if we take Detroit numbers at face value. They turned off three thousand six hundred occupied homes as eight four last year last week. When I made the announcement to start reconnecting people two thousand eight hundred families where we've out water just last year. We don't know all the people who've been turned off since two thousand fourteen. How many of those don't have water? They don't have those numbers so even if we just take into account those who've been turned off in last year at least two thousand seven hundred families households are without water in Detroit today to is the water that people have access to actually clean of the ones who have access to water. Well that's highly questionable. I mean one of the things and health campaigners fear is that for those folks who have not had running water for some time when you turn water back on increases the risk of lead just getting into your water system to the city. They are issuing guidance with every a reconnection that people should flush out there taps so at least thirty minutes and I have to send a poster showing them how to take. The faucets often had to do that. So the city of Detroit is still charging twenty five dollars for water access. Something that the State of Michigan waved as you heard for the first thirty days. Why isn't Detroit waving that fee to well? The connection fee is being waived an enemy connection fe and then they charge in twenty five dollars. I mean you know. It's really complicated. Issue at the end of the day. Water is a human y. And what we've seen since. Detroit has made this announcement is nine hundred cities in states across the US have suspended water shut offs for residents who've been unable to unable to afford their bills. So we have seen this increase in growing number every day but I just think it's a really important point to say that only twenty percent of those cities in states have agreed to reconnect people so while a growing number assigned Ikea. We're GonNa Suspend Shut Offs Jew in an cove in one thousand nine hundred pandemic. Most of them are not agreeing to reconnect people. And so that means hundreds of thousands of Americans potentially today are unable to wash their hands and water in their home wins. Hundreds of thousands of Americans right now. Can't turn on a faucet and wash their hands because of these policies to make sure water bills paid. I WanNa make sure that we have these numbers again so you say ninety cities and states have these policies in place now. Ninety Fifth and states have so far agreed to suspend water shut offs. Far More Heaven. I mean there are many many more that have been. I mean basically water departments across the country and I'm talking about public with water departments. Five water utilities do their own thing and said that's a whole nother story but a private public. Water departments generally used to punitive measures to try and get people to pay their bills both of which are ineffective from what I can say either to shop people's water off when they get into water debt. And let's be straight with rising water costs. Some people are thousands and thousands of dollars in debt to the water department and these are low income families in so then not only struggling to pay their water bill that also struggling to pay bills you know many. I'm their gas bill. Their Electric Bill and spy enough healthy food for their families and the other the other measure used by some we. Two departments is to put leans on people's houses so you can be skilled lose in your house because of the war today you say. Only twenty percent of these places have actually agreed to reconnect the water water places like Atlanta in Seattle. Why are they not restoring water? Access for people who've had it shut off in the past. I don't know why I mean it's a you know. I'm assuming it's a matter of cost and time. I mean one of the things that this pandemic has highlighted these that we do not have accurate nationwide figures on who and where and why people are having water turned off and so yes we have to say great ninety eight states and I'm sure it's these numbers were accurate as bs today. It's going to be more today. Have agreed to suspend would shut us many more heaven and like you say as a minority just twenty percent have agreed to re reconnect At this point comedy is environmental justice reporter for the Guardian.

"This point whether there was a lot of transmission going on there but as we know some people can be symptomatic for quite a while. So there's no real telling how much damage was done there in terms of spreading the virus Daniel on a local level. How safe is it for us to travel within cities to visit neighbors across town to see friends? What are some of the public health concerned with public transportation? Engines that neighborly knock on the door so I would encourage people to stay home as much as possible and to limit their interaction with other people. It's not always about you as individual. It's about our community and there are lots of people in our community who are at increased risk for severe corona virus or even death and so the risk of going across town for example on a bus Or a train is that there may be other people on those mode of transportation who are infected either. A symptomatically or symptomatically So there's the potential for transmission there There is also the potential for transmission by touching some of those surfaces and touching your face so to the extent possible. We should rely on telephones or Internet communication For the time being if you have to go see somebody make sure that You avoid touching many surfaces as possible and washing your hands thoroughly As has been discussed previously Before you In interact with anybody Nicole. New Ray is an immigration reporter. Vox and Yell Own. Pot is an associate professor of epidemiology at the Nyu of public health. Danielle Nicole thank you both for joining us. Thank you as the. Us and other countries struggle to contain cove in nineteen. You may be noticing more and more people around. You're getting anxious novel. Corona virus is not just affecting physical health. Global Pandemics have very real emotional and mental health implications so watches fueling the anxiety. That many Lissa feeling right now. Hi My name is Wendy Solters. I'm calling from Ravanell in South Carolina. my concern right now is not having information about how long the virus takes to spread. And how long it takes for people to become infected if they're exposed and how long it takes to transmit it and how long it remains alive on different surfaces other than one's hands. I have a spouse who has Ongoing health difficulties and I work in a grocery store. So those are my primary concerns. Anxiety surrounding Calvin nineteen is now so rampant that the World Health Organization issued guidelines for how we can care for mental health during the outbreak. With me right now is veiled right. Vale is a clinical psychologist and director of Clinical Research and quality at the American Psychological Association failed. Thanks so much speaking with us at this very difficult time. Thanks for having me. So based on the people with whom you have spoken how is the pandemic affected our peace of mind. How's IT playing out? You're certainly seeing an increasing anxiety And I think this is really manifesting itself in a variety of different behaviors Including the panic buying that we've seen as well as this kind of constant need to be connected to the news and social media which is also driving up anxiety so what accounts for panic buying what we actually trying to buy. That's going to calm us down. We're trying to buy back control so in. This situation is as uncertain as it is. It reminds us of all the ways. The things that are out of our control. And so this notion of trying to over prepare And over by things Makes US feel like we're regaining some control? But we're really not in at the end of the day we might be taking resources away from others So it's not a very effective way to feel in control. I'm always perplexed by seeing so many people up on toilet paper instead of food. What is that about? I think it's coming from a place of fear. Probably a little bit about misconception to some rumors that were going around that There was going to be a shortage But also just the sensor if I ran out of something really serious what would it be might be that uncertainty Propel Zaidi? So what we know from the psychological science is that those with a real high intolerance of uncertainty Have a hard time. It drives up this sense of threat and danger. And then that in turn really manifest itself innings and stress. No not everybody is Highly intolerant of uncertainty. Some people don't have such a hard time with it but we know that those who do Are really feeling distressed right now. So what about countries? Leadership the government's response to that plea role in anxiety the messaging we received plays a huge in our society. We know from a recent Study Lancet that Receiving consistent accurate science based information from leaders does reduce the psychological stress related to social distancing self quarantine in isolation so that kind of messaging is really critical right now when we think about this isolation and social distancing which is for our own good it can induce a sense of isolation in this whole idea of working from home. What are the possible mental health considerations when we social distance ourselves? Well we know that again from the research that it does have a negative emotional effect can be distressing people can become bored can become Hopeless depression anxiety again. Chris and that's in part because we're social creatures. We need to be connected to others. So one of the things we're really encouraging people to do is to remember to connect virtually whether that's text messaging phone video chatting really staying connected to loveland especially those that are the most vulnerable in isolated is critical. Right now we know that. Statistically if it's not you than someone you know where love is or was suffering with mental illness or addiction before they outbreak what is this new normal mean for them and the care that they need those who had pre existing mental health or substance use conditions are even more vulnerable than than those without and so. We need to be there for supporting them. We need to remind them to take extra care to double down on their self care to make sure they're eating healthy getting some activity Making sure they're sleeping sticking to a routine staying away from alcohol and substances and again just really using those coping skills that work for them exercise. Mindfulness music whatever. It is just reminding them that. They've got to work even harder now to take care of themselves is that what the CDC is also recommending for the social isolation. Because sometimes you just need a hug. Yeah sometimes you might need a virtual hug in this case But I think that we absolutely have to stay connected. We need to sense of community. We're not in this by ourselves. Us keeping ourselves socially isolated Are maintaining that distance isn't just to keep ourselves healthy. It's to make sure that we're keeping our whole community healthy and if we can remind ourselves that this is you know everyone and together. I think that can help too. So how do you recommend that we actually structure days in that routine in this new normal should try to keep things As they would have been during a work week or school week. Or whatever you know your daily routine would've been so not trading less like vacation but instead getting up at the same hour making sure eating your meals at the same time trying to go to bed at the same time and maintaining you know all those good social hygiene. She would have done like taking a shower brushing her teeth. Just really trying to treat this as This is the new normal for right now. Hopefully this isn't gonNA last forever. But with the uncertainty Of One it's GONNA end. It's it is certainly a challenge in time with this collective anxiety that we're all feeling I wonder. Is there any precedent for this in the past? I think not in most of our adult life times. This is really the first time we've experienced a pandemic related to A biological disease I think some compare the experience to what it might have been like to go through World War Two But I think for most of us. This is pretty unprecedented. And we'll just going to have to get together. They're comparing it to what it would have been like to go through World War Two. Thank you so much vale.

"Democratic candidates have been vying for the two thousand presidential nomination for well over a year now and today devoter's will finally get to weigh in during Iowa's caucuses but many parents in the state especially women who want to caucus today we'll run into a familiar problem. Childcare childcare and despite the childcare gap closing in recent years women are still eight times more likely than fathers to be the primary caretaker of children in heterosexual relationships ships and unlike in traditional primaries where voters just cast. A ballot caucuses are long complicated and public processes people gather in places like schools or libraries to convince members of the community to support their preferred candidate. The caucuses are basically like gathering all your friends and neighbors into a big big gymnasium or church basement and moving your body from corner to corner to vote for the Democratic candidate that that you want to be the presidential nominee and that is liz lands. I am a columnist for the Cedar rapids. Gazette lose recently spoke doc with several women in Iowa about how difficult it can be for them as parents to participate in this process. Everybody's got a different solution. Some are bringing their kids. Some are hiring hiring babysitters but some are just staying home all together because you know their kids might not be able to be with the sitter. Some have high needs kids. Some have tiny little babies who are still breastfeeding you know. And so it's it's really so many people have so many different work. Arounds is to this problem recently. The issue of childcare has become visible enough. That candidates are taking steps to solve themselves. Some campaigns are actually trying to work out babysitters in having onsite babysitting. which is great but it is again not a full solution to all parents because some some parents don't trust you know a stranger to babysit their child so there's just a lot of ways parents are trying to figure this out and it's not just a a matter of childcare for many women? The public nature of the caucus is a barrier to for women who are in abusive situations or are in more for trustful. Marriages can be just compounded by the public nature of the vote by WHO's responsible for childcare. child-care by WHO's willing to take that step and do you know these public voting processes and I think it's just all all those little individual stories that add up to the silencing of so many women in Iowa for more on the national barriers to political participation for women we turn to Kelly Dittmar assistant professor of political science at Rutgers University and scholar at the Center for American women and Politics Kelly. Thanks for coming on the show. Oh thanks for having me so these problems in Iowa. This is just one example of the institutional barriers to women's political walnut correct. Yeah I mean I think we have to think about the origins of our political system in realize that these were institutions ends built for and by men and so we see different structures different rules different norms and practices that have really advantaged made the life easier for men when it comes to not only just political participation but of course running for winning office and holding elective office is this this basically the I guess the catch twenty two that you don't have more women in higher office. Who can advocate for allowing more women to participate in the process process? Well I mean like I said I think we have to be careful in the sense that the barriers to broad participation women have really pushed through right. You know so the fact that again women are the most reliable voters. Even in the Iowa caucuses tonight women will very likely outnumber men. Part is that I think is due to women's really persistence. Nevertheless she persisted women figured out how to push through some of the barriers. One of the things to consider of course is what would happen if those barriers went down you might see even greater participation activity engagement etc from women and especially especially at those levels of participation that become harder and harder so those are the things that require more persistent percents participation more regular time commitment etc and more financial Costs and so you might see that the importance of having women as candidates office holders. Of course there is some some evidence that there is a symbolic importance. In other words seeing more women in office can make women and also other marginalized populations see them. See this as a possibility for themselves so we talk about it as political efficacy And there have been some studies that that showed when women are both on the ballot as well as representing you In Office that you might see greater engagement across different levels of participation in by women and that's important We know that women don't just vote for women they vote for the candidate who they align with most but they certainly seemed to see a positive benefit especially in the Democratic Party where interests often align ideologically with having and seeing more women there. Now you mentioned that women find ways around barriers are there common ways You know the women take to get around these barriers well. I think it's interesting right already tonight. We're seeing for example. The Elizabeth Warren Campaign gathered volunteers. And figure out how to get childcare to the caucus-goers right that's one example. So so you figure it out. Even though it's not a policy of the Democratic Party in Iowa to sort of Organiz across all the caucuses you see women especially women. Volunteers ears trying to make it work and help other people out. Historically when we've talked about women's political participation we've talked about Then being sort of do it yourself I I like. I'll figure out how to have an impact on this policy or on this process and often it meant working outside of the system because women have been excluded needed from formal politics so they would work in their communities. We see this especially with women of color and black women We will mobilize in our community. We will do volunteer on tier efforts. We will do philanthropic efforts in order to make the sorts of policy and political change that we think is most important and to put pressure on our elected officials even and if we're going to be excluded from being those elected officials one thing that has been interesting for Organizations like ours that are trying to get more women to run for her and serve in elective office is we have to sort of switch the mindset so women now and say yes we know you've been able to make change from the outside but imagine how much change more change you can make from the inside and so the all of those strategies of figuring out how to kind of go around the system have been quite effective so effective that now we have to push women to say look. Let's figure out and break down the barriers within the system so that you can also have a seat at all of those tables.

"About openly. The loss of a pregnancy miscarried my first pregnancy and that was now a long time ago about seventeen years ago before I had my two children I was shocked. It was really distressing and then when I started looking into it I found that in fact miscarriages were very common. Yeah I had a first trimester miscarriage and about twenty percent of confirmed pregnancies miscarry usually in their early months. That's Lara Freidan fell's a historian story of health reproduction and parenting and the author of the myth of the perfect pregnancy. A history of miscarriage in America Studies. Show that one in four women in the US and the UK will experience a miscarriage but as communist they are many women have trouble finding the support. They need to cope but that might be starting to change in recent months public figures from beyonce. Knowles to Alanis Morissette have been speaking out about pregnancy loss and how it's personally affected them mm-hmm and that might be opening up more conversations about miscarriage and how it continues to be difficult to talk about and therefore difficult to find help dealing with I asked Laura. Freedom didn't fell to talk us through all this including her own miscarriage experience. Part of what was really shocking. was that I was about to receive my phd in the history of science. I had written this dissertation that we become my book the Modern Period Menstruation in twentieth century America. If anyone should have known this statistic and understood what might happen it with me and somehow I had missed that information and I feel like actually it was fairly hidden It's not a matter of that. You're in poor health health or that you've done something wrong. Most miscarriages actually happened because of chromosomal problems with the embryo and so they can happen to anyone and I wished the doctor had said to me just so you know it you may get pregnant next month. It may take six months. You may have a great easy pregnancy the first time or it may not stick the first time. But that's okay. That's all within the range of healthy women's child bearing it's unfortunately how it goes but I think everything looks great and I wish you well. If someone had said it that way to me I think I would have gone in with a different expectation and it would have really helped me make peace quickly with the situation. At what point during pregnancy I see is a miscarriage. Most likely to occur. They're more likely the earlier you are in the pregnancy so one way to not have the experience in fact is to just wait to take that pregnancy test so if you test the earliest the pregnancy test manufacturers tell you you can which is almost a week before you've missed your period if you test then and you get the faintest glimmers of the Human Koranic genotropin that you're measuring with that test you've a thirty percent chance of miscarrying. That test is not telling you what people feel like. It should tell them which is that. I have a baby on the way nine months. It's telling you you. You have a seventy percent chance of a baby on the way and nine months so what I tell women as you might feel better just waiting to take that test because a bunch of the losses. You won't even know you had if you didn't take the test and I guess for many people there when they're having a miscarriage may be at home or some other place they're not necessarily having having You know under care of a medical professional correct. Yes so part of the important thing to understand about miscarriages that the experience can be very different depending on what stage of the pregnancy. You have the miscarriage so like I was saying in the first few weeks you may not even be able to tell the difference. It's between a miscarriage undulate menstrual period. especially if you get crampy periods Menstrual cramps are related to childbirth pain. And there's a whole continuum there whereas if you had even a first trimester loss if it's at the very end of the first trimester you may have almost the experience of a mini childbirth. It it can be really painful and difficult and scary. Typically what happens for someone in that situation terms of getting the kind of care our counseling that they may need. I think many women if they start to bleed will seek. Medical care may end up at the emergency room or with their obstetrician and the care that women receive these days is I would say hit or miss. It depends on the hospital and it depends on the practitioner Jenner Some practitioners very compassionate about it can explain. Well what's going on. I think a really good practitioner will tell a woman what to expect. Often they do send women home and tell them to come back if they have alarming symptoms but that they may be more comfortable and safer miscarrying in the comfort of their their own home. We're still trying to figure out how to give women the emotional support. They need in any birth situation including if they ended up having a miscarriage. So it's very common and yet you all these studies which continue to show that women say they have hard time talking about the miscarriage to even closest friends. Why why is that? I think it can be really risky to talk about miscarriage. So we know that despite the laws we have against discrimination against pregnant women and mothers that we face those issues at work so it can feel risky to talk about miscarriage with anyone Who might affect our employment? It can feel risky because actually women have a range of responses to miscarrying so some women feel profound distress. Feel almost like they've lost a child even if it's a very early loss while others feel that it's a lost opportunity any a disappointment And they're eager to try again and those are really different emotional reactions and even very well meaning in friends and family members may assume one or the other and just say the wrong thing. Is there anything that can be done. Prior to someone becoming pregnant that would conceivably reduce their trauma from potentially experiencing a miscarriage. I think so so as a historian. Dorian what I see is that our contemporary childbearing culture does a lot to aggravate the problem. So what I see is that first of all we believe as you said earlier that we have way more control than we actually do over our fertility and over being able to stay pregnant over for how much the things that we do to care for. Our pregnancies actually can make a difference by the time we had the birth control pill boy we felt like we had it all under control and in many ways we did in terms of preventing pregnancy. But that can make you feel overconfident that you have control. When you do want to be pregnant we had wonderful? Medical El-Kheir develop by the nineteen fifties. We could be much more confident in the safety of our pregnancies and we also developed a culture of maternity. He care where women were told that if they would just do the right things they would have safe and healthy pregnancies and women were told this even by practitioners owners who knew that this was not true about early pregnancy loss but there is still a feeling that it helped to say reassuring things and that maybe we would get there and we haven't been totally honest with women in the things we've told them about their prenatal care all the way from the nineteen twenty s till today for one hundred hundred years. We have a culture that I think can be very positive in many ways about how we think about. Parenting are pregnancy advice. which which already was prom over promising I think is increasingly brought to us by marketers? And they're not trying to sell US healthy pregnancies. They're trying to to sell US stuff. Four pregnancies for our children for all the different life choices. We're going to make now that we have children. It's not just just the baby clothes. It's also the minivan the Life Insurance Policy And with that advice with our pregnancy and vice coming via those marketers their incentive is to get us excited about our pregnancies and bonded with our pregnancies. Because that's what's going to induce us us to start buying their things and attaching to their brands first before someone else gets to you as the pregnant customer and I think recognizing just how much marketing is framing the pregnancy advice the marketing is framing. What we learn about embryos goes when if we download an APP we get our daily update? This is your baby on day. Fifty six if it's a marketing marketing mechanism to get you to log in daily for that picture than the way that they're telling you about your pregnancy may or may not be the objective or in your best interest Laura Freedom fells is a PhD historian of Health Reproduction and parenting and the author of the myth..
"travel ban" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Think him delivering on his anti immigrant agenda for his supporters so there are no countries countries that are I guess predominantly non Brown meaning white countries that have been affected by by by these bands. Correct none in fact Belarus was floated as being an additional country country. That would be in in this version of the band but in the end it wasn't there so it was the usual suspects in a way. What are we hearing from? The People in leadership In in these countries that are targeted by expansion. I mean our our is the leadership in Nigeria or or are they fighting. This was certainly the Nigerian government. It has been quite vocal about saying look you know. We don't even expect this to happen. We had no idea we would be on this band which is really interesting. Because if you The State State Department has said and it's reflected in the document that they had extensive consultations with officials from all of these countries Before in order to give them an an opportunity to improve the situation before they implemented this. And that's clearly at odds with what the Nigerian government is saying. I think you'd have to also understand that you you know. Most countries are not in a strong position. vis-a-vis the United States the One a lot from the US. This is one piece of what they want. Nigeria obviously is a large and populous country entry. And it can actually say something So I am not surprised that we're not hearing more from other countries because these are fairly small countries which don't have a a huge Ability to stand up to the United States now we heard earlier in the segment The audio of people flooding in J. F. K.. Airport protesting The original travel ban but of course the supreme core did Decide in trump administration's favor is ever percents. That basically this is sort of settled matter so I mean to be clear this. What the trump administration what? The Supreme Court did was to say that the injunction against the travel ban was not Upheld right so had been enjoined by the lower courts that is to say that they said you can't implement this and that it does require a preliminary Review of whether or not it is constitutionally valid and the Supreme Court said no Yukon Enjoin has banned. Because we're not that clear that it's unconstitutional. Litigation against the Muslim ban is continuing in fact just last week we had oral argument in the Fourth Circuit down on in Richmond Virginia on the band. So that's definitely still an somewhat open issue so could this new expansion affect the Those proceedings I don't think so not directly at least because that is about a particular presidential proclamation and it's about a particular policy but I think the important thing here is that we shouldn't be relying on the courts again and again to block the trump administration because one of the things we see is oftentimes the lower courts the trial court and the appellate courts have been a pretty good wall against some of his. Most outrageous moves moves But when we get to the Supreme Court we've lost several times So I think is really important for Congress to step up to the plate over here I understand understand that there is A bill called a no Ban Act. which would actually reverse the Muslim ban and make it more difficult for the president? Take these kinds of arbitrary decisions in the future and it has the support of almost every Democrat in the house and I believe a vote is scheduled on that within the next week or two Nicole. We do have to wrap up pretty soon. But do you expect Protests along the lines where we saw JFK. Three years ago to be playing in the coming days I think unfortunately people's ability to have outrage is limited under the trump administration. We really just haven't seen Protesters coming out against the trump administration immigration policies since really the separation of immigrant families. So I'm not really anticipating that among everything else that's happening thing with impeachment and now with the primary starting there's unfortunately attention on a lot of other news events and not and not on this development.
