"At Columbia University's teacher college and we're hearing from you J emails at the university where I work students are asking whether using AI like chat GPT counts as plagiarism, while using AI to do your work for you may be useful in the professional world we need students to write their own papers so they can understand the concepts they need to learn. How do we ensure that AI is being used honestly, lily to do you have a response to Jay's question? I think it's a really valid one. And again, I want to echo a couple of points that PMA in response, and that is truly about how hard teachers work and the level of exhaustion that is prevalent across teachers right now. They've been going sort of nonstop in continually volatile conditions for a few years. And I think the question about plagiarism versus what is this thing? Is Chad GBT and author? Is it a sounding board? Is it an editor? Is it a conversation partner? I think one way to answer that question, I would say, would be to invite teachers into that conversation and students into that conversation. You can easily Google phrases and it'll show you where they appear. Universities and colleges have been using, turn it in for a number of years to address this very thing. But I would err on the side of two points. One is the question around cheating and chat GPT is the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we could potentially see as the value of such a tool for learning. And so chat to cheating obscures the real set of questions that I think we want to move towards. And but that doesn't negate the concerns that teachers have. And then the second question, second point I would just say, really echoes something pia said, and that is, and I'll put a little bit of a spin on it. Not only does it call into question what kinds of assignments, what are we asking students to perform and producing schools, but how are we supporting teachers to ask different types of questions? Interesting. We are talking about AI and chat GPT and we're speaking with lalita Vasa davin.

"Local story out of Northern Virginia. About how the fairfax county school system. Particularly this Thomas Jefferson high school, which is considered the number one high school in the country or was, and so about a year ago. That they held back these national merit. Commended scholar notices. So the students who were top of the top wouldn't be able to use that information. In getting selected by top universities and colleges and wouldn't be able to seek scholarships either. And one of the reasons this took place is because it was felt by the educational bureaucracy and fairfax county. That too many of these kids were Asian. And also, we've since learned from the great attorney general of Virginia. That fairfax county hired a DEI individual that's the new name DEI, these are the, these are the enforcers of woke ism and critical race theory and in all the rest of it. For $455,000 for 9 months.

They steal our general know how. And we ourselves are committing suicide. It's amazing. People have doubts about politicians, but they're willing to hand their entire future and the future of their children and grandchildren over to politicians. And bureaucrats. And so many of these so called scientists are funded by the federal government. Like so many of these universities and colleges to come up with a result oriented conclusion. And I've quoted chuck Todd here behind the microphone many times. I sign him in one of my books, I think it's the unfreedom of the press book. About his statement, where he threw down the gauntlet and said he will not allow climate deniers on his program. Meet the press. Climate deniers. So he uses the Holocaust denier, phrase, and applies it to serious scientists, physicists. Geologists, you name it. Of which there are thousands who disagree with this.

"Playing in our economy given, well, everything. From American public media, this is marketplace tech. I'm Kimberly Adams. The crypto industry is in trouble. Just look at the drama surrounding the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange, which is looking worse every day. Add to that, the huge drop in value of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, even the crash of stablecoin, Terra USD earlier this year. And now, regulators and investors are wondering about the next shoe to drop. Hillary Allen is a professor at American university's Washington college of law, and she's not exactly optimistic about crypto's future. This is an asset class that really trades a lot on sentiment and fomo, et cetera. And for that kind of asset class to be successful, there really needs to be a lot of money sloshing around looking for a home in the current macroeconomic environment with interest rates high. There simply isn't that much money floating around. And so I think the crypto industry is really in for a lean time unless they can find new sources of investment capital, liquidity, et cetera. And so that's why I think the battle has turned in Washington for the industry trying to encourage

And Robert was telling a story about high a girl had come to him at an event that he was speaking out, promoting one of his new books. And there was obviously a cue of people snaking around wherever it was. He was giving the talk, and he was signing books, and she came up to him and she said, you know, can I just ask your advice really quickly? And he said, sure, what is it? And she said, you know, I've written, you know, I've been writing for years and I'm a writer, and I really admire what you've done. And I've written this amazing book and it's been published and I just, I just don't know what to do because I really want to get more people reading it. And I think that it really would spread if I could just get it out there. What do you think I should do? And he said, well, I would definitely go down to the local university or college or whatever, and I would enroll in a selling course. And I would learn how to sell and how to market, and I would spend the next year really focusing on that and she interrupted him. She said, no, no, but you don't understand. She said, I'm not a salesperson. I'm a writer. And he pointed to the book and he said, do you see what it says on the front of the book? And she said, what?

"From The Wall Street Journal, the so called inflation reduction act will be one of the greatest misallocations of federal resources in American history. The bill has many moving parts, but here's a simple way to sum up its macroeconomic impact. It would transfer about a quarter of a $1 trillion. Are you with me, my Friends? A quarter of a $1 trillion. Was that there was a time not long ago when a $1 billion was a lot. It takes a thousand $1 billion to make a trillion. The left is ruining the United States of America. The Democratic Party, the party of the left, the media, the media of the left. The universities, colleges, high schools, and elementary schools, the educational arm of the left.

Vishal Mangalwadi on Martin Luther and the Second Education Revolution
"The second education revolution began in 1520 with Martin Luther. Well, he sought the support of the princes to enable the reform priest to educate every child. And that revolution was grounded in the doctrine of priesthood and kingship of all believers. So the phrase we the people came from that context that every child of God is a royal priest, a king. Now the education has been separated from priesthood and kingship of all believers. It has become for the state is still educating for free, private institutions have become education for rich believers. Priesthood of rich believers, only those who can afford to get into debt or who have wealthy parents and grandparents, they can send their children to Christian managed university and colleges. So. In 1832, in Europe, the church handed over education to the state. In America, it began in 1880s, but particularly after World War I, the church handed over education to the state. Churchill started all the universities, colleges, Ivy League colleges, initially, most of them. But the judge handed it over to the state. State is not an institution baptized with the spirit of truth. Churches meant with the cycling nations marinating them in truth. And it is not states shop to cultivate character

"Sussex, the Sussex branch of the university and college union and stone wall for statements in response to that interview. A university of Sussex spokesperson said since 2018, the university has both publicly and internally fully supported professor stock's freedom of speech, reinforcing that academic freedom is Paramount. We also will not tolerate the bullying and harassment of anyone in our community, and we have been very clear that what professor stock experienced by some in our community was unacceptable. In addition, since June 2021, the law has been clarified so that holding gender, critical beliefs are protected in law under the equality act, and the university has taken additional steps to reflect this in policies and procedures and inform all staff and students about this change. The Sussex branch of the university and college union said, neither UC use Sussex branch nor UC U nationally have endorsed calls for professor stock to be dismissed or accused her of transphobia. The publicly available use Sussex statements in support of trans and non binary staff and students rejects any calls for individuals to be summarily dismissed and unequivocally supports academic freedom. And a stonewall spokesperson said stonewall is proud to fight for a world where lesbian gay by trans and queer people are free to be themselves wherever they are, our industry leading diversity champions program continues to grow, and we work with more than 900 organizations to help create working environments in which LGBTQ+ people can thrive.

Now, the first woman ever has been chosen to write a James Bond novel. Award winning author, Kim Sherwood is to write three new books set in the iconic world of James Bond, published by Harper Collins and Ian Fleming publications. The series will explore a world without bond and a new generation of secret agents, tasked with fighting a global threat. Kim has described bond as one of the enduring loves of her life. I caught up with her yesterday on the program. I mean, I used to joke to anybody who would listen to me one day I'm going to write James Bond. But I didn't expect that that would come true. So this is amazing. But anyway, enough of talking about bond because we are moving on now, aren't we? Because this is the whole point. You have been brought in to write a trilogy about double O agents, but Bond is not in the picture anymore. So James Bond is missing, he might be captured. He might be killed. We don't know. And the trilogy will follow a new cast of agents. I mean, this is a very clever thing for them to have thought to do because who doesn't love a spy story, but it's the time is right for to modernize this franchise correct. I think so. I think James Bond has remained an evergreen symbol for Britain because he can change with us. And what I have the opportunity to do now is to expand that universe for the first time and to create an ensemble cast of heroes who we can all identify with. But in terms of who has been chosen to write for the Bond novels in the past, we've got Kingsley Amos, Sebastian Fox, Anthony Horowitz. And here you are, I mean, a relative unknown..

What Is a Breakthrough COVID-19 Infection?
"Dr Deborah and Mulligan, professor at Nova Southeastern University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is board certified in pediatrics and emergency medicine as welcome our dear doctor. Good morning, Jimmy. Let's talk about little bit about breakthrough infections. I think I saw that about 83 85% of the people hospitalized in the state of Florida. Were not vaccinated, but there are some And that's the breakthrough infection. Right? That's what we call it. Tell us about this. Yeah, sure. So, you know, we had a really good vaccine driven strategy for the vaccinated. It was supposed to be a worry free, hot back summer of socializing and fun. That was before Delta. You know, this tough, formidable folks spoil their plans and rising covid breakthrough infections. Among fully vaccinated is a reminder that these vaccines are not a silver bullet. Nor is the mask a full proof invisibility cloak. So let's define what is the definition of vaccine breakthrough infection for our listeners. It's the detection of SARS Kobe to RNA or antigens. Collected from a person more than 14 days after they completed recommended doses of covid 19. So I have had patients who were diagnosed with Covid Illness, but they hadn't been fully vaccinated. So, for example, maybe you got the first shot. It was a week later, they hadn't got their second shot. So Jimmy, these vaccines are intended to prevent severe illness. That was the end point, and they're doing that. They were not intended to prevent spread 100%, although they were pretty marvelous until you know Delta came along. These vaccines are working as expected there, bolstering memory B cells, protective D cells and antibodies to protect us from severe disease. They're doing that.

You random people kids hanging around and they you chinese them two matches and it almost does. They're you go into pokemon fi kind of like you've got people on either side of the screen and then you just throwing the dodgeball. You compress like to catch it and You just time your throws and there's like team up a team up scenarios where three of you and is rules sets whereas like oh a few knock someone completely out of the game instead. What they do. Is they go behind you. I didn't. I don't know if this is a role in actual dodgeball but like in the game. I knocked someone out and they were like right. That person's now on the other side of that could be the enemy if they throw the ball and it goes to their knocked out player they can throw it back so like weird shit like getting a saas getting freaky with the which would the dodgeball rules. But it's a lot of fun and each each player has like a different move set kind of like i picked a pick. I had my main character. It's just like a little lad who can just catch the ball and while you're traversing around the dodgeball At the university or college. I guess it is. You can let crawl into a roll into a ball to get round faster. And then i recruited someone else who's got like a kick and instead of catching the ball.

This is like weird anime dodge ball. It's kind of good. Because sometimes the i make sense because sometimes the enemy player or the enemy dodgeball. Athlete is like on the other side of the other side of their half. So it doesn't make sense for you to just leave an empty bowl like in the middle of things Like you just run up and grab it and then throw it and hope that you hit him. There's some really fun moments where you can select when you hit the first dodgeball. They're like down. If you take your second throwing your accurate as kind of recovering from it you can do more damage. Because they take a hit as they're getting up there's nothing they can do about it So it does have a decent amount of strategy to it. I think it's like the game actually is like maybe nine or ten hours and it feels like it's pay three role to be this. Just light fun Rpg frolic dodgeball in it. You can look items and equipment and that kind of stuff is fun. You are less fun than because we played a bunch of knockout.

Stop reading The New York Times and The Washington Post. Stop listening to these people. They're crackpots there, demagogues, they're propagandists. The New York Times, in particular has a horrific history, a human rights history that That is so grotesque. And the Washington Post isn't far behind. NBC, CBS, ABC. You can't get a job. There is an anchor if you're an honest journalist. You gotta push the propaganda baby. So Put them out of your minds, Push them away. And these corporations are in for a huge surprise after we're done talking Huge surprise. As far as I'm concerned. We have been very passive. And we vote. That we pay for everything. We make the country work. Vast majority of us Don't ask for a damn thing. And we are attacked. Characters are smeared. They seek to degrade us and dispirit US. Purpose of this book is to rally us to galvanize us. To give us reasons to do it. And to let you know you do matter Each and every one of you. And we need each and every one of you. We don't care about color. We don't care about what your faith is What your background is, If you love the country, that's all that matters. We may even love it for some different reasons. We're going to put our differences aside. Truth is truth and reality is reality. The Democrat Party. Is the most powerful political force for American Marxism. Based on its support for all of these These movements. Under the leadership, so to speak. Joe Biden. This can't be ignored any longer. Chuck Schumer of Nancy Pelosi. They will do anything for power. They will do anything to empower their party. It's 50 50 in the Senate. They have no mandate. She's got a four vote lead in the house. They have no mandate. None whatsoever. And so what happens? Biden, who talks against autocracy is the biggest autocrat in the nation, issuing executive orders controlling the private sector, controlling women's sports controlling what goes on in the classroom. Pushing the agenda of the Marxists in this country. Now I know this word upsets. The Marxists who pretend they're otherwise. Now there's the out of the closets. But there's a whole phalanx. The people who pretend otherwise. They largely embrace. The Marxist economic system. I don't mean they say in every respect, you know, grab the property. No, no, no. Said. It's an Americanized form. There was a time when the media were honest about this back in 1989, and I pointed out in the book and the second champion. An entire An entire column written. About how Marxism is far more acceptable in colleges and universities back in 1989. Because they've broken themselves into these various pieces for feminist. Immigration for this. That and the other, It's exactly what they've done. So we're not going to put up with censorship. We're not going to put up with intimidation. We're not going to put out with bald face lying. Which tries to sugarcoat this stuff. And the only way we're going to win this battle is to be honest with ourselves and honest with others about what's taking place in this country. You want to talk about insurrection? Look at the media and the how they've taken over our classrooms. They've taken over textbooks Have they've taken over the the entire learning process from us. We pay for everything. We have No say that's got to stop. We don't even have access to information that's got to stop. Our universities and colleges are killing us with these tenured Marxists and radicals. Well, how does that happen? We need to find out and who's paying for that We are. We know so little about universities and colleges. We know so little about the N E, A and the left and what they're doing to our classrooms and our kids. That's got to change. And much more.

If you wanna it that use that term and that is that on the one hand you've got the question of us military eight israel. you've got senator bernie sanders who has introduced a measure to suspend almost eight hundred million dollars of american arms to israel until you can have a clear cessation of the violence in other words confirmation following last friday's ceasefire. And then secondly. I think that emphasis not only on reconstruction in gaza which is something that the biden administration is promoting including on secretary of state. Lincoln's visit to israel and palestine yesterday but also on the wider issues the issues of jerusalem. The issues of what the democrats these crafts would call an israeli occupation of the palestinian west bank and some time of true to negotiations for a palestinian state after those of effectively stalled since two thousand nine.

Thanks so much for joining us today. How are you doing. thanks for having me you guys. It's really an honor and a pleasure to be with you. And i'm doing well awesome. Glad to hear that. That's great so. I want to play off the title of your book. The new normal. I'm in california forces here to without a lot of ups and downs estate. The definitely there's a sense with more and more people getting vaccinated people kind of stabilizing. There's this longing yearning to get back to the old normal and even kind of prickliness said any sort of restriction on a return to that former sort of equilibrium that people were used to and yet you're talking about the new normal that we just have to face. So why do we have to face and deal with a new normal. It is kinda wanna ask the naive question. Why can't we just go back to the hold normal. What's pushing us ended as a new normal. Well as you guys know. I'm a medical doctor. Not a psychologist but in medical school we do have to learn some psychiatry and some mental health and mental illness Unfortunately we learn enough but in speaking to a lot of mental health professionals. First of all your question is a really important one. Because we're not just seeing that people want to go back in time almost magically in the setting of a pandemic. We tend to want to do that in
Dermatology for Skin of Color
"Want to talk about the field of dermatology. That's the one treating hair skin nails Yeah it's an amazing field. So skin is the largest organ of the body. We shed more than pound of dry skin throughout the year. And it's a really visual field. Okay so dermatologists. Like dr jeannette. Acquai- rely on pictures to get a sense of what a disease looks like so they can recognize it in the moment where freely scanning the patient from the minute we walk in the room and many of our diagnoses. We actually know them from the door. Because rote memorization of what things look like as such a big part of our training. Jeanette is chair of the department of dermatology at howard university college of medicine and like a lot of dermatologists paying close attention last spring when covid nineteen was giving some patients. A skin rashes. Do you remember that. yeah i do. There were reports of covid toes. Like people's toes swelling up usually showed up with more mild cases. Yeah it was considered kind of covid red flag but ginette was noticing. The pictures clinical papers about cova. Toes and other skin manifestations were overwhelmingly of light. Skin historically black skin. Brown skin is not represented in literature appropriately. So it wasn't a surprise. It's just that on the heels of all the things that were going on in the country last summer we thought that it was worth calling it out in a way that we hadn't called out our colleagues in the past

Goodhart's Law in Reinforcement Learning
"Student at university. College london minds researches mauka manipulation if you have self trading algorithm does it learn to manipulate markets. And then going from that. How'd you stop it for many players in the market on cutting more generally how do you tell algorithm which runs a policy. How do you tell it. The certain things are illegal. Should be done. So it's kinda taking me on more security journey than i thought it would because of going into the world of experimental psychology lower because not market knows very interested in intent lieutenant and they're also interested in coz -ality my work at the moment is trying to establish will Like for an hour them and the what the beginning to be talking about today is connected to quality so is an area that really came up in my kinda full mold machine learning education and it was only probably just over a year. When i read a book by judy. Appel will the book of why a restarted get interested in the subject to causality and realize that it's something but isn't tool on isn't handled while a machine learning at all. And if you read the book. Paul is very adamant about the importance of alexey. In housing types of analysis simply can't walk without taking into account so it drew a question in my mind is wide or how machines machine learning techniques reinforcement dining. what when there's no explicit treatment of causality. it's all so that led to the dog brought to pipe official quoted by fulminate cool cool combo good health law enforcement butting so a reinforcement learning should be all about causality. You have an agent. He chooses actions that she's actions. That somehow changes the world. They receive some kind of award the world changes and so on so you think that reinforcement learning calls aleksey guy well together and actually if you to believe bill. They can't walk reinforcement. Dining should be able to work if causality isn't explicitly treated. But if you look at sutton a barter which is the canonical text on reinforcement. Learning a search for the wet causality. Causal anything like that pays exactly zero times in the book. So someone's gotta be wrong. Eva wrong in saying that actually k. nikon generate any kind of policy to solve a problem or reinforcement dining extremely lucky so far in the Questions that they've studied have contained any kind of interesting causal structure. I agree that the word causality is suspiciously missing from most of the reinforcement literature. Books and papers. I've encountered but it almost feels like it could be there implicitly. Could this just be a matter of semantics. Well that's the great hope from deep reinforcement dining. I guess that ye somehow by involving date neural network in order this somehow in that your network which is unknowable. Mysterious does the job of analysing causality. It doesn't automatically so you don't need to think about it. And it's done you don't need to worry about to me fulfillment dining works. So let's move on. And i guess there is an element of that because reinforcement dining does work. But it just made me think about if you look in science. In general there's a long history of humans discovery techniques which work with before actually understanding why they work so i was thinking about i on the on age was five hundred bc even saudi arabia and to make land. You need to take on all you. Smelted with coke and the coke burns in the air that produces carbon monoxide to carbon monoxide displaces. The oxide in the side which then lacey with real on so at what point in human silenced. It be realized that was happening. Probably two years lights may be seventeen eighteen. Hundreds ole is time. We still had on tools. Said he didn't really matter that we didn't know why what it did kind of walk on. I like bit to reinforcement learning. Maybe the process. Which does what. It's a bit mysterious. Maybe ego to do things to get it to work. But the actual understanding as to white wax isn't diane. I think without an understanding of sally cardi understand.

European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado
"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before
Science FAIL! Why it's good to do
"We've all made mistakes right. But sometimes i can make us fundamentally confront who we are and who we want to bay beck in twenty four eighteen neuroscientist. Dr been to has had a damn good reason to be excited. It was it was such a shalit's basically there was years of work at prestigious scientific journal current biology had just accepted a paper by humidity supervisors based on his phd project but not without rigorous peer review. I of course reviews as good and tough questions and lots of extra analyses. I did when finally the email arrived and said yes. The paper is accepted. it was just. It was a very happy moment.

So as your brain stitches together sane in front of you what you see is rematch spatially. Onto a part of your cortex at wrinkly atalaya of brian. So if you think of the cortex is old crumbled up that if you would flatten it out like a sheet could see on this flat surface neighboring points on the critical surf representing neighboring points in the visual field in the scene in front of us then put people in an mariah scanner to see what happened to the map when he distracted them using different visual cues. He came up with a k. For design for study and think we scan a total of twenty seven people which was at the time by far the largest study using this type of method and the method was kind of knew. He said there was a lot to figure out. It was computational so there were some analyses that literally took weeks every weekend machine would run through that stuff when it crashed it would send me an email which is a dangerous thing to do because when you get an e mail on sunday saying oh your coaches crashed in your very tempted to go back to the office and start to fix it. That lots of careful data crunching and analysis lighter and he'd found something significant and surprising this aspect of the brain of the visual brain which part of the scene a given neuronal population of marin response to seem to be more malleable than we thought and it was surprising that it seemed to change with attention. Just through your attending a given power to seen more than an condition. There's a lot to this week but the shorter the long of it is. This was a robust finding worthy of journal.

Kids is a lot going on right and he gets an email. I received that email. And i have to say at i. If i'm honest i i. Wasn't that worried that something was wrong. Really wrong only been didn't understand what yet and he would have to make a career defining choice about what to do next today on science fiction. Something we can all relate to filing and why it's good to do especially in science but also wants wrapped up in a whole lot of stigma and shame again especially in science you know great successes are trumpeted and things. That are not successes. You don't want people to know about however failure is so normal to the day to day working of science we need to move towards a culture where we are actively embracing failure. We all know that air is human and assigned as you know we have to ask why and behalf to ask how and way we fe often leads to the next question we are asking and so does this theory much part of scientific process. It's very great suits of inspiration in many ways the into no signs. That's not the way it looks and sounds in science when a journal pulls or retracts a paper the stuff of nightmares for scientists. But he's angst about scientific integrity scandals scaring scientists away from talking more openly about making mistakes back to that email bend has received at the uselessly. Big university in giessen. It was from susanna stole. Who is doing pay at university college. London under the supervision of professor sam schwarzkopf.

That Islam does not affect the French way of life and French values describe that as a relaunch of the Crusades an attempt to Spread like cancer the Islamic phobia that already exists in Europe according to Don So there, but the dispute doesn't just start there between Turkey and France on they are at odds over a number of issues including the war in Libya and including the search for hydrocarbons in the eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict in Nagorno-karabakh. Absolutely, and we'll come back to those in a moment. I just want to bring Felipe here to talk about what my chronic said. I mean he's saying that he's been misquoted. Yes I think that that's what he says and to to be fair in this Ongoing Saga Domestic Saga in France that is around the shaggy bill cartoons the latest of course, the latest terrorist attacked a couple of weeks ago. This teacher who was beheaded in France by terrorists the the trial shall you do are all taking place as we speak, but there's a lot of things going on and to be fair my call has always been has has never been the hotline in this. In this debate about the cartoons is a bit more of a solo rather than. So in a sense, it's been unsound aim to be to be branded suddenly the most Islamophobic person in fraud I don't think used to be fair but the issues for sure it's been misquoted in a sense i. think he said, yes that they were issues with Islam. which probably was a rather undiplomatic way of putting things to wealth stage. I think he's presented essentially the new bill on socal separatism, which is quite controversial in France and probably. Is, yes implicitly targets in the Muslim population in France but it's true that if French I'll probably surprised how at ten suddenly the sued relationships and and how the sort of tension has related between the two countries of late. To. Be Fair that the two men have been at loggerheads for a long time so it seems on the train side. For advil hand, it's almost protects the those at the story of the call tunes because inside the being as your guests. Until you have just said, there's been real geopolitical issues and disputes between the two countries for one now. Yes. Well, I wonder how much of this also has to do with Turkey's domestic politics I mean we know that there's a huge economic crisis is this a diversionary tactic? It certainly helps distract people from the issues surrounding the economy and our one has been accused of using any number of foreign problems to distract his voters This in particular might resonate because the fact that it's religion and this is something that people hold. So close to their hearts on think that people are filing necessarily know every twist and turn. Of the issue. But when they hear of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, they might recall the images of the Prophet that the magazine published previously and that. Sir. Association. So when are two one talks about insulting Islam that's what comes to mind. Not The fact that published an image of political leader on the cover and so if bob he does have an impact. You know anything to get people's minds off of the fact that the jobless rate is soaring. The currency in Turkey has lost about forty percent of value this year against the dollar There's real economic pain here. So the certainly can help can help change the debate now.

U.K. Moves Toward Ethically Controversial Coronavirus Vaccine Trial
"Vaccine Trials are happening all over the globe today. The UK government announced funding for phase. One of something called a human challenge trial for a corona virus vaccine. The process will require young healthy volunteers to be infected with the virus in an effort to speed up vaccine testing a company called H Vivo and Imperial College London. Have the contract is set up the first part of that process. Here's more from the world's caroline dealer the idea itself sounds wild intentionally infect people with the very virus returning our lives upside down to avoid. People hear about these trials. Many people's immediate reaction is, how could it be ethical but Oxford bioethicist deb Yom row gic says, it's possible if certain conditions are met one of those conditions is that the expected benefits of the research outweigh the risks. In this case, how many infections could we prevent if we developed a vaccine sooner? For example, in a typical clinical trial thousands of people are injected with a test vaccine and sent out into the world to see if they still get infected naturally that's happening now with several corona virus vaccine candidates, but Andrew Catchpole. The, chief scientific officer at H., Vivo the company launching this human challenge trial says that takes time normal traditional trials involve many thousands of subjects take many many months to complete in human challenge trials, which HP VO has been running for decades. A small number of healthy volunteers would be intentionally infected with the coronavirus after getting jabbed with a trial vaccine to see if it works. What happens is because everybody is given the disease, you're able to determine efficacy in a matter of weeks. These types of tiles have been used for centuries and in the recent past have. Sped up the development of typhoid and cholera vaccines. The agreement announced by the UK government today is just for the first step of this contract to manufacture and test Raina the virus to use in trials it still has to be approved by regulators and an ethics panel. If it is between thirty and ninety volunteers could start being injected with just the test virus, not yet any vaccine as soon as the beginning of next year so far nearly three thousand people in the UK have signed up to volunteer for a challenge trial. One of them is allaster frazier ORCA. White indefinite convinced. The Human Josh all has essential to advising Ovalles, scenes, population way more quickly lift on them on opinion the risk is small enough to travel participants that we need to take that risk frazier ORCA put off going to university for a year to work with one day sooner, a nonprofit group advocating for human challenge trials and signing up volunteers. He says the Tom Channel some of the fear of living through a pandemic into something that feels productive grandma custos. My Dodd might catch his out his risk. So kind of on a personal level the. Volunteer volunteers will be paid somewhere around five thousand dollars insurance cover healthcare costs. For any complications they will quarantine in a special nineteen dead unit at the Royal Free, hospital in London for an expected two weeks after virus exposure. Again, Andrew Catch Paul from h Vivo. A first priority was doing these studies is the safety of the volunteers. So for that reason, we go very strict criteria about those who. Will be eligible to participate. Volunteers must be between eighteen and thirty healthy with no pre existing conditions. But there's a more controversial criteria that scientists are wrestling with right now whether to exclude volunteers of color because there is data suggest that there is a potential for increased risk. The UN says Kobe nineteen is disproportionately affecting racial and ethnic minorities around the globe including in Brazil the UK and the US. K. Government figures, black men in England and Wales are more than two and a half times more likely to die of cope in nineteen than white men. Some of that is explained by socioeconomic status in pre existing conditions. But Dhillon David Kumar, a physician and professor at University College London says it's more than that. They're also other underlying causes racism discrimination for example, being an underlying cause which are not easy to count foreign. Announces such as this Dave Qamar said, he's the health impacts of racism and xenophobia. He says, well, it's important to note that raises a social construct, not biological. The effects of racism in tells in ways that can be hard to identify. So you can't hold constant the discrimination someone's face throughout their life. You can't hold constant the environment someone grownup in the levels of air pollution kinds of housing that they've lifting throughout their life. So. There are differences in outcomes amongst racial groups. David Kamar isn't familiar with this specifics of this study proposal, but he says he can understand the reason for picking volunteers who are at the lowest possible risk for getting really sick. Charles cordray chief officer for the Caribbean and African Health Network sees it differently. It's really disappointing people of Color. In clinical trials that's partly due to legacy of racist medical experiments. By white doctors and kwok-wah dray says the idea of excluding people of color from this trial would add to the distrust mistrust and the lack of trust has come about as a result of decades of sometimes how we need to respond so quickly but what is meant is that there's a whole section of people. Fair much. whose voices are not being head HBO is still making a decision about whether and how to include people of Color in the first phase of this trial when they're testing out the safest way to infect people with the actual virus the company hasn't designed protocols yet for the actual vaccine-testing in hopes quickly follows the volunteer criteria for this stage of the study will be finalized and handed over to UK regulators and an ethics panel by
Neanderthal DNA May Be COVID Risk
"The risk factors for covid nineteen are many old age obesity, heart conditions. But early genetics studies have identified another trait that some people who developed severe cove nineteen seem to share a cluster of genetic variations on their third chromosome and that DNA sequence likely derives from neanderthals says Hugo, Siegburg of the Max Planck Institute it is quite striking that S-. This veterans has lingered until house years fifty thousand years ago is. The approximate time humans and neanderthals interbred, and over the Millennia, those neanderthal variants have become more common in some homo sapiens populations than others for example, about sixteen percent of people of European descent carry at least one copy of the neanderthal stretch half of South Asians do and nearly two thirds of Bangladesh's, and that's kind of fascinating is so high that points towards that it must must've been beneficial in the post. I mean it's much higher than we expect. Undone. It's totally expunged in east as shown in China. Some something has happened driving the frequency often certain placing removing a token, the other places they details are in the journal, nature. See Bergen is colleague right that perhaps the NEANDERTHAL DNA happens to boost the risk of developing severe covid nineteen and they point to the fact that in the UK people of Bangladeshi descent have twice the risk of dying of cove nineteen than the general population. But as Epidemiologists Neil of the University of Nottingham pointed out in an email people of African descent in the UK are also being hurt more by the virus. Despite, having hardly any neanderthal genes instead, it's social factors like crowded multi, generational households or working frontline jobs that are more likely to be driving the trend seen in the UK that's according to Andrew Heyward Director of the Institute of Epidemiology in Healthcare at University College London, and as both epidemiologist pointed out, it's worth remembering that you can only develop severe covid nineteen if you're exposed to the virus in the first place.
