Fresh update on "ucsf" discussed on Mark Thompson
"Your chance of surviving the most severe case of the infection is likely higher than in some other place is here you go. Here's a statistic for you. The survival rate on a ventilator at UCSF and S F general Has averaged around 80%. The national average is more on the order of 60% or 70%. So it just speaks to using? Yeah, it speaks to the quality of health care on the city. I mean, we always dump on the city. I mean, you've got break ins, burglaries crap on the street people shooting up public nudity, homelessness out of control, So I feel like I feel like I have an obligation to point to. A virtue in San Francisco. I mean, obviously several magnificent place and we've got your views, and I just think it's a spectacular world Class city, right? Right. But but also a world class city problems. Big city issues that are getting worse. Yeah, so it's nice to see you. That we lied in a category that is something that's really Braga ble, and it's also pointing out that San Francisco is healthier. In other words, there's a low rate of obesity and a low rate of smoking. And the Bresse point on that Also in this piece, and again, I'll tweeted if you're curious, but they referenced the fact that, in essence, the population didn't push back on mass restrictions and other things social distancing. So Bret's right, You really have a a society with in the Bay area that is ready to play ball to try to beat this thing or to try to limit its spread. So that matters, you know. Something happened with Stolen identity. And it's wild. The lady who did the stealing. Is right here and know Peter's, but I want you to hear this and I'm going to suggest to you at the end. I don't think He's the problem. In a way, San Diego man dealing with both fraud and frustration. Right now, you want to apply for benefits, only to find someone in male Penis was already using his identity That's going to be used, and Reuben explains for Sebastian Alvarez getting his identity back and his benefits restored. Is proving to be impossible. It was like being kicked when he was already down. 20 year old Sebastian Alvarez watched the pandemic, take his business, then watched a stranger take his unemployment benefits. She said that she bought it at a spot meat for $80, a woman in Bill Peters had apparently bought his identity for $80 US. Gotta swap me. She said that she bought it at a spot meat for $80. A woman in there. Peters had apparently purchased his Social Security number, using it to collect thousands of dollars in e D. D benefits in her own name. Alvarez reported the crime to police. He also reached out to Eddie D. Repeatedly. It's a little frustrating because I call on that call. I tell them the same thing, 1000 times and like they've even said Okay, we get an investigator's going to call you in. An investigator never calls me. I'll tell you something. I should be ashamed of themselves. And the governor needs toe weigh in on that that is a state fail. And I have talked about this in relation to just trying to get ahold of Edie and Newsome has acknowledged it is a problem. But okay, so you've acknowledged it is a problem. It's like that thing where they will, because the biggest relevant would you have a substance abuse problem is admitting you've got the problem. I suggest the biggest problem is stopping the substance abuse. In this case, the biggest problem is fixing it, Edie out of time when we're desperate. We're desperate for those benefits. I truly feel as though this is a huge fail on the state on the state's part. Clearly it is, but I also understand that they're understaffed that the technology is behind these air things that governor actually references in his remarks about their office. About their office, a DVD, But what I would say to you is You need to ramp up in a hurry. Look Wildfires Pandemic restrictions County by Scott by County a kind of some counties revolting against those restrictions. I get that there's a lot on the plate. But what I'm I'm passionately asking is for us to ramp up this agency to get these people the help they need, not this guy. He actually went through everything. He's just trying to get ahold of somebody to explain his situation, which he has now repeatedly explained. His identity was jacked and somebody else is getting his benefits and he can't even get that. But what I'm suggesting is that is to say that attention. They promised. Somebody is going to call him back some case worker and he never gets that return call, But what I'm suggesting is he's just one example of how they're letting people down repeatedly. It's a little frustrating because I call and I call and I tell them the same thing. 1000 times and like they've even said, OK, we're gonna an investigator's going to call you in. An investigator never calls. He's not alone in his frustrations. Former director Michael Bernick says the more applications and more money on the line the more fraud cases they see. I know people are very, very, very tired of contacting DVD very, very, very tired of waiting for a D D but t transfer, there's no Easy answer to this. But Alvarez says answers are what he needs that and an ability to collect benefits or established credit for himself. As for the woman using his social Security number, she told no Penis police. She purchased it three years ago and have been using it ever since. To apply for jobs and benefits. I don't want it to get supported, but at the same time to like, like she's not making it any easier for anyone for me, especially because she keeps she keeps like attempting Tio collect benefits using my social millipede is police. Have wrapped up their investigation on the Santa Clara County, D. A s office says the case is under review Oil and Ruben Katie via Fox. Thank you and Ruben and Katie v u I. I think that the woman obviously is doing something wrong, but she's trying to participate in this economy. She's here illegally. Obviously, there's an entire underground economy as we know in restaurants and sanitation and custodial services. I should say. And I mean and well, well beyond that. I mean, you know, everywhere. And I mean the common agriculture. The economy of California and of America is built on so much of this of this grey economy. You know, people who are working people are paying taxes, but they're not in the country legally. So she gets this so security number the same way. Probably hundreds of others have and she, you know, gets it at the swap meet for $80. But she's ripping off a real person who desperately needs this. He's seen his business go under. It strikes me that.
Fresh "Ucsf" from Murph and Mac
"Help to keep you safe. When you're ready to travel. Amtrak is ready for you look now at Amtrak dot com. Yeah, We're talking here about health, right? We just talked about. You know Jason Sudeikis getting the covert test and Jon Gruden saying he had the cove and all that, and the topic was health and that made me think about it. My friends at Bern Health because they're here in the North Bay still sitting here reminding you that Doctor's appointments have been put off by too many people, and that's kind of a crucial thing. The numbers show that the last six months people are like, Oh, yeah, I'm going to stay in. I'm not gonna go to the doctor. No, no, no. You need to take care of yourself. Somewhere in health is providing this friendly reminder. We have convenient clinics throughout the North Bay. They are part of UCSF health, and we have expert primary care providers of specialists. Maybe you need a cardiologists or an orthopedist or urologists. We have him. Maybe you're more comfortable doing a video pirate from home. That's fine. We do video appointments from the comfort of your own home. If you do come into clinics are clean, they're safe. They're disinfected regularly, and we scheduled appointment at intervals to reduce weight times. So maybe you.
Vaccines and the Future of COVID with Epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford
"This isn't the same rehashed discussion of covert. This is. Well more worth listening to. This is stuff that you need to know. This is medicine we're still practicing. I'm building. Of course, I by friend and Co host zooming in Dr Steven. Tailback he's a quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care, and he continues to fight on the front lines of the covert battle here in California for which we are eternally grateful. Steve. How you doing? Hey Bill. Good to see you. And R various special guest Dr, George Rutherford. He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct. Professor School of Public Health at California Berkeley. I had a chance to print out Georgia's see. It's one hundred, twenty, six pages long with two hundred and twenty one published papers and so many important accolades. So I'm going to read the whole thing to you now. Only. Kidding. Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same

How NBA players are using the Oura smart ring to warn of coronavirus
"What exactly does the Smart Ring Do, and and let's start with what its original purpose is, and what it was marketed for initially sure, so the has been around for two years and never got to review. It was one of these things I meant to, but it is a it is. A fitness rang health ring much. Much like the ring made by motive years ago, it checks heart rate it contract sleep it contract motion and activity, but it also tracks temperature. The temperature sensor is the interesting part because there aren't any other wearables that do that, but it's not necessarily the temperature sensing. You think it can't give you like an actual body. Reading of like you know what hundred point seven or whatever? It's a relative temperature that's. Night to show temperature fluctuations plus or minus degrees Fahrenheit. That's mentioned. Just show your changes in your baseline, so to speak, and so how is it being used as a early warning system for covid nineteen? Now been working with a couple of research teams UCSF has a study that you can opt into in the APP. That's been going on for a while. That's asking people to log You know their own moods and symptoms to try to study correlations. That's similar to what other companies are doing trying to see. If there could a way could help connect to symptoms and krona virus, but those researchers are seeing that you can with with the temperature capabilities see signs of illness symptoms a couple of days in advance of when you would normally perceive them. That could line up with the couple of day. Lead time that people believe might might be you know a symptomatic spread period now I'm not a another doctor. My research scientist from talking to researchers working with this and I've been I've been really curious about what that could actually mean. Another research team at Rockford Neuroscience Institute West Virginia University. Has Been Looking at trying to create a health forecasting APP that they have in place that they're using with with frontline workers and seeing if you could provide you know a couple of day pre forecast of whether you're likely to be getting sick. And built on a similar idea of using temperature mainly as a way to pick up ways that you're you're readings are hinting towards the sign of sickness, but not necessarily a sign of coronavirus, just a sign of sickness general from what they perceive. They claim it's like eighty nine percent. Accurate in predicting so far signs of upcoming sickness that will be when you get a coronavirus. You know that's when you get tested. That's when you would maybe. Go into work in some future world where we go back to work, and you know the reason why folks might be more familiar, we're now is because NBA players are supposed to be wearing them as they. Get set to kick off their their special. BUBBLE SEASON DOWN IN FLORIDA. Yes so NBA players have been wearing this of chosen this this wearable. OPT in program and. Coaches that that can look at the stats get kind of a distilled subset of the stats that aware of the ring, now like the consumer version would get so I see all these different pieces of information. There is a respiration. There's heart rate variability temperature these are estimated again. A couple of those key factors of four of them were pulled out and turn into a risk score. That idea is that if you seem like you're, you're scoring significantly high on that, you would Pull yourself out. Get Kobe test, and that type of thing. But you. You get something like that on the on the order APP itself. There's a score, the kind of shows like a whole bunch of factors and talks about like you know Harry feeling today. It sometimes it correlates with our. I feel sometimes a dozen so. Same thing asleep scores but it will let me remind me of like how I'm sleeping. And how much I'm you know? Both bedtime in some element of restiveness, how much I can do about that is is the other thing, but that the NBA is using again is kind of a pre screening tool for those who were bubbling Brian. So you're obviously not an NBA player, Sarah Scott, but how how are you using this? And how does that differ from what they're using this for? As as Early Warning System, yeah, so again as curious and I've not been doing any of those those things and I'm not using any advance APPS. I'm just using the consumer version and seeing what it's like so I just live with it. I've been wearing three months since late April. All the time and what have been noticing is that a lot of ways I don't notice anything because I. Just live my life, and then I check the APP in Awhile, and it says okay. This is sleeping and I tried to make myself sleep better, but like a lot of sleep tracking things. I don't act on those things as well. They should still go to bed super late, even knowing do. But the temperature thing is mostly been fluctuating around the same thing, a little down a little, if I who knows I, haven't knock on wood. I haven't gotten sick over this period. If I had actually gotten sick or perceived something that might be kind of interesting so hard to tell in that vacuum, but. I just wear. It will give some testing with it and I'm curious. I don't think it's it wouldn't replace a fitness watch because it's not as detailed as that and the one thing that the ring is, it's totally invisible with how it shows stuff. It's this nettle ring with no readouts doesn't buzz no buttons and you'd have to check the APP and also if you don't know if it's running out of batteries on the seven day battery life. Until you check the APP where you get a notification from your phone, so there's times where just went dead, and then I had like five days of no readings because I forgot to charge it, which is not ideal if you want a wearable, that's going to help provide early detection for people in a future workplace so that that's one challenge with it. The other thing is talking to the researchers and thinking about what would we all be doing with this? The NBA is bubbling now in a world where you go back to work and have some sort of you know wearable screening tool, which is what people are imagining. Its Eye, contact tracing unit everyone to opt in. And that means rock varner sciences. He was also trying to build towards. Maybe eventually a ways like at that would show ideally like where signs of potential illness popping up through crowdsourcing, but much contact tracing that requires people to participate and right now you still have questions. People are still refusing to wear masks so I mean. The. The degree to which you get people to all agree to wear wearable. Seems extremely optimistic and then when you deal with things like public. It adds all sorts of other complications so an office. Could all agree to do it? But how do you? What do you do in the larger world? I think those are questions. It still hadn't been worked out because the systems are only as good as everyone else's reporting, and just to be clear that this is not a cheap option. This is not cheap solution. Right? Like how much does this thing go for? And how easy is it the by one? The pretty easy to buy, and they're not that cheap there four hundred dollars so. Yeah the falls line with with. Your standard good smartwatch or Apple Watch or thing like that, but you know it's made like titanium plastic on the interior and It's it feels nice, but that's a lot of money, and I think some people will really like it because it's convenient. Enter praying and not a watch Some of the researchers also pointed out that a doctor's and frontline workers don't like wearing rings because they're not good that the germs could get in there. LEXIE! Shoes she's wearing. It didn't like it because of swelling and for exercise, the ring didn't feel ideal was uncomfortable for her and you have to get fitted. You have to get a particular size on the ring. They send you a sizing kit, so if your size changes, that's not great. A watch is adjustable, so there's a lot of things that are weird about it, but I think. It opens interesting questions about what temperature could possibly do. On, wearables in I'm really curious, what will pops up after this? It seemed like from your experience that made you call it somewhat invisible and the data I mean how ultimately how useful is this data? Have you used it to change your life for because you sort of hinted that that you looked at the data? then. It hasn't really changed anything, but like ultimately is this useful? In terms of changing my life. No, because you're right. You know this reminds me of like the talk. I had with with Kevin Lynch on Apple. Watch and apple could be making a lot of decisions on this to why they're only doing. Certain elements of sleep tracking. You know they're just doing the bedtime. Wake up is they claim that the rest is not actionable? Now they call so it could be that apple isn't fully develop the rest of the tools to their liking. But I think that's true in terms of when you get sleep scores like on this. What do I really do with like that? I didn't rest well enough you. There's really not much you can. Do you try to get to bed earlier? Maybe try to take it easy. Me could try to like take on yourself, and that's what the APP recommends like. You know you're reading the scores. Great. Go do it today, or it's not great. Take care a little bit today and I think that's interesting. So in that sense did change the way I would perceive some days I go. Hey, I'm not a great readiness score. just be a little easy on myself. What I know that just waking up and just feeling like crap. Probably you know I think some of these things correlate with how you would normally feel. Feel anyhow, if you're a self aware, but I think the getting back to work thing, the bigger question which is like you know I hate to even leave with that in the story, but it's what people think about about the possible Kobe awareness. I can't yeah for me I'm I you know I? Pi- blood pressure. I'm not going to put myself at risk going out. Out in the world, even if there's a sliver of it and then if I don't know that the APP, the rest of the world is behaving in a responsible way. Then I don't want to put myself there and that doesn't have to do other a wearing ring. It's like so the hard part. There was a halo over everyone's head. That said you know yes I. I am using the device I. Am I am part of your network? Then that's bubbling I. think that would be. That might be a different story, but again. None of these data things that these research programmes are absolute yet. These are all experiments, and all the researchers things a tip of the iceberg, so look how long people have been researching sleep and possible signs of. OF APNEA. or All. These research programmes with wearables they can go on for years and the NBA is very much an experiment. We don't know at all how that's going to turn out
2 more death row inmates at San Quentin die from coronavirus complications
"There've been two more deaths on San Quentin's death row from Kobe, 19 and as K CBS's Megan Goldsby reports, the growing outbreak at the prison does increase the risk to residents Submarine. That's because, says Dr Peter Chin Hong infectious disease specialist at UCSF, First of all, a lot of people in community work in the prison system. Guards, concessions things people, administrators. And they go back and forth between the community and the prison system. The second issue is, of course, the person doesn't have a nice view. The prison doesn't have an acute hospital, which means patients are being treated at hospitals in Marin, although, says Marin Assembly member Mark Levin. Oh, yes has been working on partnerships with 14 hospitals. All the way up to Folsom to make sure that prisoners who need hospitalization won't all fall just to Marin or Bay Area Hospital. He calls the situation at San Quentin, where 40% of the inmates are now infected, a tragedy that will likely get worse.

"At UCSF and senior researcher at the interdisciplinary center for healthy workplaces at UC Berkeley professor yelling always a pleasure to speak with you thank you for joining us thanks for having me so where are we saving money and where are we spending more while we are working from home well people aren't spending at the gas pump that's a good thing and people are not spending money for lunches at work and stuff like that but they are having to spend more to get food at home and they may be saving on you took their spending more and utilities as well at home because there are more I was thinking about that if it gets hot we've got the air conditioner on a B. it's cold we've got the heat on and then the lights are all on and all our appliances or or laptop at centre all plugged in exactly and then a lot of the bay area people are home for the middle of the day when it's hot and so they're using their conditioners I live in San Francisco so we think more about putting the heat on if we look at the demographics of who benefits most from working from home what do we know which groups to benefit most well you know younger workers the so called millennials those who have young they have young kids so they're spending considerably more than usual and you can see why they are probably would go to warehouse stores or Walmart in order to buy food but they can't do that because they're stuck at home so they're having to spend more to either shop at a local store that may be more expensive or tap food delivered at home I don't think you get L. as people are spending more at home does that mean the company who has an empty office building that they're spending a lot less on utilities and things like that you know that would be an interesting hypothesis I think a lot of people who rent companies to rent offices the utilities are built built into the rent so it could be that the owner of the buildings are reaping a reward from not having to turn the air conditioning up quite as much but I don't think that most people who rent offices are seen statements on their monthly bill I guess it will be interesting when it's okay to go back how many companies say you know what this is working out okay everyone can stay home and perhaps they don't even need to rent those buildings are you know we've been doing that interestingly center quite a lot of work in this area and employers and employees are both thinking very long and hard about how to return for many workers there have been many pluses but we all miss social interaction of work in this a lot of collaborative points of work that aren't done as well and when you're working from home even in this year of zoom calls hard to read a room in the zoom call and how do you think the stress of spending more money working from home could impact our stress levels overall do you think people are suffering well I you know I think that money is part of the taking care of kids in the home is an important part of that friend certainly in the millennial generation that are trying desperately to keep up with work as best they can to to provide childcare now this summer to provide more childcare and apps in exchange for not monitoring their kids school soon's pearl for five hours every day so it's a lot of very stressful things and there's always the stresses well of thinking about whether they're doing enough to keep their job four for many people thinking about it might risk because my company may not be doing this well professor ed Yellin thank you for joining us great thank you so much.

Join just for more home in Berkeley California. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks so much for having me Scott. You begin with an amazing story about a man whose name I will not chance to even try and say March Eleven nineteen eighty-four what happened on this planet. Good Liquor Thorson. He's an Icelandic fishermen and fishing trawler with his crew. It's calm waters it's cold it's forty one degrees and the boat overturns with forty one degree water within twenty to thirty minutes we die from hypothermia but he did not everyone else did and he ended up swimming six hours and when he finally got to the hospital the doctors weren't able to discern his heartbeat or read his temperature on the thermometer but he didn't show any signs of hypothermia and he was only a little bit dehydrated. He was a strong swimmer certainly but was he also saved by his own biology. He was like the story very much. Because it is this the distillation of what makes swimming so special for humans. We have to learn how to swim. we're not born knowing how to do it instinctively and yet there are sort of traces of that evolutionary past still within us that our evolutionary past that came from the sea and so with good liquor for. Thorson turns out that his body fat was two to three times normal human thickness and more solid and so he resembled a Marine Mammal. More than terrestrial mammal. And that saved him. Did you grow up feeling? Pull into the even. If it was only Jones Beach in New York I did. I mean my family origin story is at my parents met no swimming pool in Hong Kong. We grew up with swimming family and so we grew up at Jones beach in the pool. Lifeguards swim team. I just always remember feeling more comfortable and happy in the water actually than on land. I mean there's just a sense of magic that you get from being in the water and buoyancy that you just don't have on land you in this book talk to swimmers all over the world right nearby you though you you swim San Francisco Bay without a wet suit and there are people including I gather you who believe that's actually good for you in all ways it can be. I mean I have also talked to scientists and researchers who say cardiovascular risk. Don't go into sudden shock cold water because it could stop your heart that aside a wr decided there are benefits to cold water immersion. And there's been quite a bit of research in recent years where your dopamine levels go up in your over time that your cardiovascular system is strengthened and you know there are people there are things that we knew from across cultures around the world that there was a water cure there. Was you know jumping in cold? Water was good for you and jumping in hot water and then jumping into cold water and so we didn't know why exactly in the science kinda starting to catch up. What is this Brown fat you talk about in this book. Well this was really interesting. I did not know about Brown fat until I started swimming with a Dolphin Club swimmers in San Francisco Bay and so I went to ucsf to talk to the foremost researchers in Brown fat and it turns out that mammals are born with two kinds of white fat which we all know about the energy stores of our bodies and Brown fat which actually Burns and produces heat energy. We kind of start to lose it as we get older but there are ways to do what's called the Browning of white fat which is to kind of turn it into energy burning tissue. That fat is called Beige Fat. And so what? Kind of encourages. The development of beige fat is cold water exposure and exercise among other things. But those have been proven to be causing this change in our bodies. Wonder if you have any words for people who aren't able to swim these days you know. The water is a draw for us no matter what and so even if you can't get in the water if you can walk near it can look at. It can see it can You know have some what a wall Nichols calls domestic waters in your house and you know. Take about the shower. Just look at imagery watches surf movie. I mean those things.

Calling Trump: When connections help steer virus supplies

the request of the state's endangered Republican senator Cory Gardner Thursday's Denver post editorial declared trump is playing a disgusting political game with our lives but the trump administration says it's got a plan and that it's working White House adviser Peter Navarro April second these guys up here doing a heck of a job organizing the supply chain well I think that's news to a lot of medical providers no I'm levy is a national health care reporter for the LA times trying to follow the cultic nineteen supply chain I can't say I've talked to many hospitals or doctors offices or clinics around the country who feel that the supply chain is being managed in anything close to a rational way that's for sure and we can't seem to get answers from FEMA or the White House about what system if any is being used to balance the needs a couple weeks ago I was speaking with the head of the Texas academy of family physicians who working with the golfing buddy of his managed to in about a half million masks over the border from Mexico and then spent about seventy two hours getting them to rural hospitals and doctors offices around Texas because the state of Texas didn't have anything to distribute so you've got the system in which everybody's running around trying to get masks and ventilators and everything else and then on top of that is a totally opaque system of what appears to be haphazard intervention by the federal government on some supplies but not all of them everyone is completely perplexed we hear that trump is having no problem directing to Florida whatever Florida seems to need so zero which is the agency that is allegedly responsible for distributing supplies from the strategic national stockpile has claimed that they have some formula for distributing medical supplies that reflects states in large metro areas relative populations and the relative severity of corona virus outbreaks they are actually shipping things across the country however it's impossible to find out what that formula is whether or not allowances are being made in one way or another four criteria that have not been identified president trump hasn't been shy about claiming that he's willing to reward its friends and punish his enemies the conspiracy minded person might think well is there some nefarious methods to how these supplies are getting distributed or not we just don't

Calling Trump: When connections help steer virus supplies
"President trump who's told states to fend for themselves has had female blocking orders for vital equipment secured by governors some of them anyway so the government can buy them instead this week FEMA see is that in order for five hundred ventilators from a private company obtained by democratic Colorado governor Jared Paul is only to have trump give back a hundred of them at what he called the request of the state's endangered Republican senator Cory Gardner Thursday's Denver post editorial declared trump is playing a disgusting political game with our lives but the trump administration says it's got a plan and that it's working White House adviser Peter Navarro April second these guys up here doing a heck of a job organizing the supply chain well I think that's news to a lot of medical providers no I'm levy is a national health care reporter for the LA times trying to follow the cold pick nineteen supply chain I can't say I've talked to many hospitals or doctors offices or clinics around the country who feel that the supply chain is being managed in anything close to a rational way that's for sure and we can't seem to get answers from FEMA or the White House about what system if any is being used to balance the needs a couple weeks ago I was speaking with the head of the Texas academy of family physicians who working with the golfing buddy of his managed to in about a half million masks over the border from Mexico and then spent about seventy two hours getting them to rural hospitals and doctors offices around Texas because the state of Texas didn't have anything to distribute so you've got the system in which everybody's running around trying to get masks and ventilators and everything else and then on top of that is a totally opaque system of what appears to be haphazard intervention by the federal government on some supplies but not all of them everyone is completely perplexed we hear that trump is having no problem directing to Florida whatever Florida seems to need so zero which is the agency that is allegedly responsible for distributing supplies from the strategic national stockpile has claimed that they have some formula for distributing medical supplies that reflects states in large metro areas relative populations and the relative severity of corona virus outbreaks they are actually shipping things across the country however it's impossible to find out what that formula is whether or not allowances are being made in one way or another four criteria that have not been identified president trump hasn't been shy about claiming that he's willing to reward its friends and punish his enemies the conspiracy minded person might think well is there some nefarious method to how these supplies are getting distributed or not we just don't know what difference does it really make if we know or we don't know what the formula is for distributing this stuff this is taxpayer money that we're talking about private actors in the market of

instead of humans in order to maximize profits at the expense of what's best for the patient doctor Maryland singleton on coast to coast happy holidays to you Maryland well same to you and I'm so glad to be here tonight what an amazing subject well it's certainly caught my eye when last year Daddy came out that Google was working on where they put all the data of several patients into the computer and could predict which patients were gonna die how soon and whether they leave the hospital or not and that their prediction came out better than the doctors according to them tell us exactly Berlin if you can in layman's terms what is an algorithm it's basically taking a lot of data and and I mean and a person can make an algorithm for themselves and we probably do that in our own heads in everyday life if Johnny doesn't do the dishes then all have to do the dishes that's a very basic algorithm and if this then that if this and that and then you take all the facts and put the men and come up with an answer the problem is in Madison so much of how we treat people and how we really hear people becomes very individually with the patient there always seems to be some little glitch a computer with the is the glitch in each patient that they just don't follow the rules and this is a real problem if they say well we'll have the computer make the decision you'll just be then all the data state in the lab tests but then you have is silly as it may sound you have miracle and plenty of people have the story of somebody who is supposed to die they were on death's door and somehow they didn't well what do you do with that patient what do you say the computer said you were supposed to die so I guess we have to kill you at it's it's it's it's going to be a very very slippery slope of how much we use this data and how much we decide it can think better then we can also remembering who input the data human being doctor Jack Kevorkian the angel of death would be concerned Whitney well it's very interesting because in my view years ago all her Roorkee and was considered cool all for helping people die even it and presumably these people wanted to die and and he was in fact convicted of the water I believe it was manslaughter it could've been second degree murder and now some of our laws are just allowing them in and so when people think oh X. wires the will never happen we don't have to think back to many years to see how we viewed something twenty years ago and then now it's a completely different and it's happening now they are encouraging doctor assisted suicide in and and the son get that's right you know he was convicted of second degree murder Maryland and was the sentence to served eight years of a ten to twenty five year prison term and then he died in June of two thousand eleven I wonder though if he enjoyed doing what he was doing because that's where that goal thing comes in all right well I think one of the things that bothered people he was a pathologist and not clinical physician so some people thought well he doesn't really see patients and he's not an internet family doctor of whatever but I think he was compassionate hi I certainly didn't know and so who knows and all you can go by is what was written about it and I think he believed in what he was doing it was not medically or socially acceptable at that time and then magically now so should be acceptable and what's interesting to me is it seems we've regressed because if you go back to ancient Greece that elders decided which babies lived or died and which old people lived or died when you outlived your usefulness boom you were gone and then we seem to evolve from now and it seems like we're going back the other way now we're we're just deciding well you're expendable we don't need you anymore and yes it's okay to kill babies at birth what concerns you Maryland the most about all this that we're losing our humanity and it yeah it's interesting because of all in the news we see things about the factors of robots and all this stuff and I would read it and Jeff WAF when it came out it was like a joke actually and then suddenly it doesn't seem so silly anymore because people are actually buying into this stuff apparently the sales are up and then you look at kids they are dating because they're afraid to date because of all this political correctness and you wonder where it's all going first you don't talk to people because people are standing right next to each other but they're texting each other what that and what happened to people talking to each other it is it's become a really unusual if you say well I'll call you hello world text to me the information in and I don't think call you I don't think most younger people can go to dinner with a friend and not put their phone away where they don't look at it for the entire dinner instead they put it on the bars top or the restaurant table it's there in case somebody texts them or if they want to send the tax I don't think they can physically put it away there too addicted to it I think you're right and I certainly see that and just going for a walk in seeing people walking together and they both have their phones out so all these things taken individually you can sort of fluff it off but then when you start adding it up you have people not talking to each other anymore people forgetting how to talk to each other therefore you don't become comfortable with human emotion and maybe you'd prefer to sit in front of a computer screen for you know to learn about news the world or whatever rather than having a discussion with someone and and and so bit by bit we're just we're just losing our humanity do you remember the movie years ago fantastic mortgage yeah in this for people who have never seen it before a guy had some kind of tumor or something clock or something that needed to be operated on in the only way they could get to it was to shrink the medical people and put them in this little tiny machine like a little space ship that was so minute it traveled through his bloodstream and they want to the two more to fix the guy it was an amazing story is that is that doable one day hi I don't know I don't it's what enter the thing is now they are putting DNA chips in in animate objects there's a DNA chip by just read the other day that they put in a toy rabbit so I don't completely understand how they do it and I'd like to but they can put what is it millions and millions and millions of time more information in this little DNA chips then you could in a computer chip and so somehow they've been coded DNA put it in an animal object and that dining to me so certainly this whole concept of fantastic voyage could be out there I don't know that you could shrink people but certainly you could make some sort of capsule with a curative item in it and floated through.

Jennifer of Lincoln high school in Elliot lake Wilmer dang and ton is also here with us psychologists and clinical director of the child adolescent mood and anxiety clinic at UCSF this is all conjunction with the youth takeover program. And Elliott was in the middle of personal narrative there about some of the pressures that she feels that have maybe contributed in addition to maybe biological disposition other mysteries that you're trying to solve. But let's explore this little more with you. And I'm interested in also funny out something I believe that you expressed about the fact that there's a lot of workshops that go on at your high school, but nothing really that broaches on or proxy mates. This whole question of mental health. I mean, they'll talk about I guess ADHD. They'll talk about this Lexi, but not the kind of things that you struggle. Yeah. And I think that's something that has it's been difficult. Not. And I think that we're talking about having to have a facade or mask on at school. And I think part of the reason is that it's very stigmatized and my school in a lot of schools. Don't do great job of bridging the gap between the experienced are having what's being talked about in the classroom. And I think that's it's been a conversation that frankly, I've been a little bit disappointed that it's not part of the narrative our school has explored because we spend a lot of time and resources, which is fantastic on people who have learning differences like ADHD dyslexia or something of the sort which Inouye mental health should take away from. But I think it's equally as important to have conversation around clinical depression, and then also just the more generalized, anxiety and depression are generations feeling let's find out what our listeners are feeling. I wanna go to your calls here valley tidal you wanna add anything to what each. Huge proponent of workshops, actually, I think the really important to help as many people as possible access information and kind of a good bridge between trying to understand what's going on with the person and then seeking treatment. I think it's a good way to disseminate information, so I would love to see more schools doing workshops, and that's something that we offer at UCSF also should mention here little editor coming the schools. Most of the schools, even the private schools are woefully lacking. In terms of counselors and psychologists and psychiatrists just not there. Yeah. It's true. And also, you mentioned KC precious. That's definitely the case historically in private schools, but I see in public schools as well that many teams up until two three in the morning doing homework and these students that starkly do quite well. Imagine how hot is even for the students who have dyslexia ADHD or struggle in other ways. And so, yeah, I think the schools I would encourage schools to kind of look at that. And see how it's impacting students mental health. We mentioned a couple of things that are really central to this whole discussion stigma and treatment necessity for treatment and the necessity to do something really profound about stigma because it is a profound problem. Let me get to caller. So Jacqueline we open with you. Good morning Jacqueline. I have a question for psychologists. You have on red program the school seems to be lacking in understanding how to deal with this problem. Even though you seem they informed that this is a rising problem with a student. I have a God athletic woman that is has been open to the school about and iden-, depression and taken more that she told us in hug hug softly. And I think only now have they been able to provide somewhat of a structure support for her allowing her to discuss issue with teaches directly and I wanted to ask the student as well as to what do they seem to be helpful and the psychologist? What did you suggest the school to do? Because. The school is really not supporting the student. What would you in an ideal world? Let me ask both for Nellie. What would you like to school to do? They could do not only for your peers, but could have done for you or could still do for you make things more supportive. I think something that's pretty basic that could implemented as our school has a freshman and sophomore year health class and within that health class. They do. Of sexual education. They talk about gender identity all which is fantastic. But I think the mental health component is really missing. And I think if you can start educating kids early enormous ising the idea of struggling with mental health that could help in sort of a proactive measure to address issues that they will very well face later on while I'm gonna ask you for two. But I want to read a tweet because it's addressed to both of you. This is Chris pleased. Let your guests know that they are very very courageous and brave people. I hope they're honesty and willingness to speak about mental health problems encourages other young people come forward and seek help Jennifer. What are your thoughts about what could be more supportive, and what could be really helpful to your peers or could be to you even feel like every school should also have a support system or like a wellness center? Also provide like out sort outside resources for people who don't want to be involved in that school situation and just rather do outside and also have a conversation with friends. That you trust because I feel like having a support system. Just makes you just wanna talk about it more and be more open ineffective. Just respond to something. You said really quick. I think at least for myself, it's really sobering. To hear stories of people who don't have access to treatment who go to really large schools who have even for me. It feels that. I don't have a lot of access to conversations about mental at the school, but for people even less, and I think thinking about my own experience and how difficult it's been. It's crazy thing that just more various people have in the lack of congressman privilege and equity that needs to be made. Sometimes it just helps to know that there's somebody there who can listen to what you have to say, and you can open yourself up to entrust absence. Almost that simple. Not simple, but simple in the sense of it being needed and desperately needed in. So many situations. Adriana writes, my daughter struggle with depression and UCSF dialectical behavior therapy program saved her even with insurance, it was expensive and investment of time that we. Thankfully, we're able to do like it or not parents need to be involved are teens one us to leave them alone. But also stay on top of them and being gauged, they need their parents, another support of adults to chicken often, we need to learn to listen to our teams not just as parents. But seeking to understand where they're coming from another comment from Kelly says as a teenager. I also struggled with depression. I remember feeling unsupported by my family now that I am a parent. I am wondering from the teenage guest's perspective, what qualities in adults are in your family would help you and support you through this and for Natalie with the very of talking to adults and minor. They're successful programs for peer support for teens. Let's go first to actually Elliott spoke about support from her. Parents let me go to you on this Jennifer because it's been more of a challenge for you. And everything. What could you do to break down that barrier that your parents have? I mean, some of it's cultural I realized I feel like just sitting down and just tell them and saying that like, I have depression, and even if they don't know it you can just try to slowly explain like the symptoms and what we have. And maybe they'll be open to more understanding. But right now, they don't even want to hear the center. I feel like they don't really understand it 'cause like depression like, you don't really see it physically. Sometimes. Right. But then for me, it's all mentally. I don't really show it. So it's not like on the service. They don't see it. But I feel like like as time goes on. And if you talk about it, more and more the kind of like a little bit more open to it like a little shell. You can also give them some articles to read if they're open to that or welcome. I mean, if they're willing to do that there are a lot of articles that talk about mental health as being comparable, and it is under many rules of insurance and so forth. The physical health and has to be maintained talks about depression in terms of disease and affliction all of those kinds of things which it is question was also for you Natalie taught in types of parents, parents can do I think empowering parents to be involved in treatment and to ask questions, and then kind of sounds like the question was also about before treatment. I think just sitting down with your team letting them know that you're available letting them know that you've noticed some changes on want to kind of be available in track to be kind of as. Judgmental as possible. Just be just be available in advocate. I think the other cola Jacqueline that cold and was saying that she had to push hard for a child to get through the school. And so I waited encourage parents, you know, there's a lot of areas and difficulty accessing treatment to be as much of an advocate as possible. And here's Karen from Hillsborough. Karen, you're on the air. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Good. Thank you. Good. I was calling the unfortunate to be an instructor at Panera junior college some county here, and I have a lot of student to suffer from depression, anxiety, all the time. And I teach interpersonal communication, so it's a wonderful way to open a discussion with students about that. But when it comes to really helping I think as instructors and educator. There's a little bit of a question. Like, okay, you're not trained in mental health. You know, all this all these tools that come from communication, but I'm just wondering how restricted we are in terms of maybe not providing mental health services, but some sort of communication interpersonal interpersonal support students and two other mental health professional. Thank you for that question occurrence good to hear from you. Tell you address. I mean, which is suggesting is really something more in place. Yeah. Yeah. I think if you want to read up on the warning signs as mentioned earlier, but also just know that you can be really supportive to students and your goal might be to help them access treatment situated talk to them and encourage them to seek help help them connect to me sources only so much. You can do if you don't have mental health background is really challenging to do that. So it's great that students are coming to you. And I think it's important to know when to okay, I really want to be able to you. I think that this is kind of beyond the scope of what I can help. You can I help you connect you to therapist, and that's an important role for those in teaching roles, and do, you know about this yelled program? I wanted to ask you about it. Because when you're talking about getting parents more involved, it's my relieve a with over yeller NPR story on it. And what they do is they especially with anxiety work with parents in working gradually to get their kids to face their fears. But they don't work with the kids. They work with the parents. Yeah, I think that's really interesting approach. Probably really helps with families where the we talk a lot about the parents having kind of stigma with being cultural barriers, but sometimes the kids may know once come into treatment to especially if have one of the kind of coal problems with anxiety is voidance. And so you mentioned of as you running wanting to avoid the time at end of that thought of that was overwhelming anxiety, anxiety provoking, so yes, whether it's helping the child to do exposure, helping the parent to then work with their child all of that sounds wonderful. I mean, the the kind of CBT approach for anxiety is exposure kind of in a hierarchical way starting with lower level exactly preventing situations and help people face them. And then that the kind of catastrophic event that they may be imagining either doesn't happen. If it does happen working with therapist to have a coke plant combat plan dealing with that. So whether it's helping the parents to kind of be a coach in that way, a working directly with the child both all of the. Above all, this wonderful Elliott, maybe diagnosing here. But maybe you need some coaching on not being able to adjust to the idea of mediocrity. Yeah. I actually just wrote a story in trail runner magazine about sort of facing mediocrity. And I think I'm somebody who is sort of a I don't know greatness complex. I wanna say like I have to be mediocre that doesn't mean. Yeah. I think that mediocrity and this goes into what we're talking about the culture in schools. I think me is something that is discouraged and in a way stigmatized itself because I think being elites on and being the best at what.

"Be a sensual one for providing good healthcare and two for being able to deal with the finances of healthcare. So really when we think about value, we have to be thinking about the people who are sickest and how we're gonna provide care that really aligns with what's important to them. What are their values? What their goals, I'm very often in that setting? It's not coming to the hospital, and it may or may not be receiving a lot more interventions than it may be care that really allows them to be at home to focus on their symptoms and other goals and values that they that are more important to them. So really thinking about that challenge. And how do we design systems to do? That if you look at the world the way it is now, and I think the good news when you look back compared to a decade ago is how many more palliative care services. There are and recognizing that there's an increasing evidence base for the role of palliative, Karen, increasing the quality of care for people with serious illness. So when you look at the data, and you look back over the last decade or two even there's so many more palliative care services. So many more people receiving palliative care. And yet the reality is that it's still pretty much random event, whether you get palliative care or not so even in our own system, I could have to patients in the clinic to patients in the ICU with identical problems one is getting palliative care from our specialty palliative care team. And the other is not and has very little to do with the patient and everything to do with how the doctor or nurse thinks about whether this patient is right, and whether the doctor nurse or comfortable talking about palliative care. Introducing it and making the referral, and that's not a system of care. That's a random event. And if we're really going. Change care. First thing we need to do is make palliative care routine. And in order to do that we have to be screening people to understand what their needs are do they have pain? Do they have shortness of breath? Do they things -iety? What are the caregiver needs that? They have do. They have the help that they needed home. Do. They have an advanced directive are their decisions coming up that they will be facing. And that is important to address in advance until the first step that we're beginning to implement here at UCSF is really trying to understand. How do we scream large populations of patients using information from our electric health record and other information that we could gather from patients really understand what those needs are. So that's a first step. And then once you know, what their needs are then we can design systems to really address those needs recognizing that it's not all going to be specialty palliative care. Just like not every patient with heart. Failure is going to need to see a heart. Failure specialty cardiologists, for example, and not every patient with diabetes each to CNN to chronologies. But if you don't know who has diabetes in your system is going to be. Very hard to improve care for that group of patients with diabetes..

That's why Sarah Mars and her colleagues believe cracking down on low level dealers and people who use drugs would do little to slow what they call a fennel poisioning epidemic. Instead Maher says it makes sense to focus on wholesale suppliers who seemed to choose fennel because it's cheaper and easier to make than heroin, and she says Chinese leaders recent pledge to better control sentinel produced in their country is an encouraging sign.

After the code, we may have have a guy who. The best that we could hope for will be a persistent vegetative state where he will be living on a machine for the rest of his life, which could be quite a long time. Actually, he's a young guy and we didn't know anymore. What what his outcomes were likely to be. But then this happened. I'm just looking at my text messages, Tom, the cardiologists. He'd been texting with Dr Klein the doctor over at UCSF asking has her patient and he starts getting these messages back back from doctor Klein saying he's alive which was not a given, but still no heartbeat still with no cardiac function. But then a little bit later another message from UCSF and now there is a heartbeat, holy crap. I mean, he he spent fourteen hours in v v no more bag of worms. This man's heart is beating. Jessica gets the news in the middle frowns I keep calling Tom, what's going on with that guy. I was shocked.
