China Censors Ukraine; Surgeon General Censors COVID 'Misinformation'
"I told you before the break how I got an email from the email morning blast from axios this morning and they're one big thing story was China's censors Ukraine Apparently the Chinese government doesn't want any pro Ukrainian messages getting out there because they're tyrants and they want to make you to believe we want to make you believe that there's this large and growing support for Russia and that the Ukrainians are evil awful people for fighting for their freedom So they're censoring it Which I thought is super weird Because the Surgeon General of the United States just did the exact same thing with regards to COVID policy here and yet people like axios the cat lady Politico and others never seemed to make the connection The Surgeon General of the United States in name only the sagano Vivek Murthy had just put out an edict demanding that big tech companies produce to him He's the Surgeon General He's not George Patton like a four star general or 5 surgeon He is a Surgeon General And he's demanding big tech companies produce them information about COVID misinformation online And when they say misinformation what they mean is anything that doesn't align 100% with their already false narratives about COVID

"Our teeth each day, this world would really be a different place. And Chris I can actually just add to what Richie is so beautifully said. I think in a modern society that is hyper obsessed with efficiency and with using every moment. I think this is what's really striking to me about well-being. So many of the pillars of well-being that Ritchie and his team have so eloquently written about including insight and purpose and awareness in connection, these don't necessarily require hours and hours a day. You know, sometimes it is as simple moments that can generate so much benefit. Because again, I think our bodies are actually our minds are hard wired. For connection for well-being, we just have to feed it at least even a little bit. But it's also think about what you said earlier, Krista, about learning about ourselves by being comfortable with ourselves. Connecting with ourselves, that is so extraordinarily important, but not an area that we focus on when we think about a child's education and what they need to know to be happy and successful in life. Today, earlier today. We had a parent teacher conference for my two children. They're 5 and three and a half at the age of enchanting. And it was very interesting that the teachers asked us, so what are your goals for your child in school? In a share, I found myself writing and being like, well, do we want them to focus a bit on reading? Do we want them to focus on social interaction? What do we want them to really focus on? And it's only after I hung up the phone that it struck me that actually the most important thing I want for them is to be comfortable with themselves is to be comfortable in their own skin. There's this beautiful poem, which I suspect both of you know by Mary Oliver, while these were the first few lines really remind me of this. She says you do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles to the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. And that is so simply putting it so elusive. I find him in society which tells us to chase many different things. Whether it's good grace and a resume in school or whether it's well power and fame, which is I think the three big goals that society tells us constitutes our self worth. But this pandemic for me is maybe we think a lot of things. But one of them is, what are we seeking to give to our children through their education, both in school and out of school? How can we best give them the best shot of living a healthy fulfilling and happy life? So stunning to introduce those lines of Mary Oliver because you know I would say one effect of the pandemic also especially in that early period was that we were forced back to this realization of the soft, the soft animal of our bodies that we are all that are creaturely existence. I'm Krista tippett and this is on being today with U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and neuroscientist, Richard Davidson. Richie, I'd love to go a little bit deeper into the four pillars of.

"Surgeon General, Vivek Morty and neuroscientist, Richard Davidson. There is, as always, a shorter produced version of this wherever you found this podcast. Greetings, everyone. I'm Richard Davidson and I'm very happy and honored to be with all of you this evening. And especially deeply honored to welcome our special guests for this conversation to dear Friends of mine, one is Vivek murti. The Surgeon General of the United States, I first got to know Vivek during his tenure when he was Surgeon General under president Obama. And I'm so deeply grateful for everything you are doing for our country, particularly with the challenges that we now face. And also welcoming my dear friend and esteemed journalist thought leader Christa tippett, whose podcast on being has brought the sacred to everyday life of so many thousands millions of people worldwide. So I'd like to now turn it over to Krista, who will moderate for this evening. And thank you both so much for being with us. Hello. It's such an honor and a pleasure to be here to be part of this event to be here with all of you who are joining us by this miracle of zoom. Imperfect and yet miraculous all the same. If any of you have listened to me or read things I've been writing over the last few years, I have so often used these words. I said, as we walk beyond what we've been living through, we have a world to remake. And so of course I had to say yes, to this invitation to this event called the world we make. And in the context of drawing out Richard Davidson and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and their deep intelligence and vision from the realms of science and public health expansively understood about the agency we have and how we are learning about the agents we have to grow and shape our minds and our bodies and our presence in and into the world. It's such a strange and hard and fascinating time we are called to be part of so much healing and so much growth and at the same time we are learning a great deal that can help us move us forward as a species. So I think that is my audacious vision for what we're going to the ground we will traverse in this next hour or so. And I'd like to start. I also want to encourage the two of you to speak to each other. This will be this will be a conversation. And I'd like to start with the language of well-being. That is kind of a primary concept. It's a word and a phrase that is used a great deal by the two of you. It's relatively new in our life together. And really, we are having these rapidly evolving cathartic shifts in understanding the fullness of what that means and can mean. And I would say that you have both lived through those cathartic shifts and also been part of them. And I'd like to start with just asking, thinking about that language of well-being what understanding of that did you inherit or imbibe growing up and in the early training you had in your fields? And what has that phrase come to point at for your know? Are you two? Would you like to go first? Please vote. Why don't you take it first? Well first, let me just say, what a joy it is for me to be here with both of you. I have such deep admiration for both of you in the work you've done and the immense contributions you've made to society. I've learned from both of you over the years and just feel very blessed and privileged to have this chance to converse. Well, it's interesting question you ask, Krista, I think that my earliest teachers in medicine and in life for my parents, and they didn't use the word well-being, but they conveyed a concept of what well-being was to me. And I was very, very young. And what they helped me understand was that it wasn't just enough not to be ill. But that there was a whole spectrum on which we could live and operate. And part of deriving in life, according to my mother and father, when I was a child, was doing the things that allowed you to function on the highest end, if you will. Of your scale, where you were being who you were, enjoying life, contributing to society. And as they got older, it's interesting I went to medical school. I trained as a doctor. The concept of well-being didn't really come up very much. We were felt in training we were very focused on identifying and eliminating disease. An important endeavor, no doubt. But it felt like half of this story and the other half about how to optimize our sense of well-being, if you will. That was not so much the focus. They weren't words for it. There wasn't an approach for it. There wasn't science and data that we talked about and reviewed in the classroom. But I will see now in finally thinking about not only my life now, but thinking about the responsibility that I've been privileged to take on to think about and to do everything I can to support the broader health of our country. I think about well-being a lot. Because I think we have an opportunity to really see health in its broadest sense to redefine public health, not just as the absence of disease. But really, as the endeavor that we all need to undertake to cultivate our ability to live at the top end of our scale, if you will. And through that, to not only enjoy life and contribute the most to the people around us, but to contribute also to society in the way that can move all of us forward and help us get through very difficult times like this pandemic. We will pursue that further. So Richie, well-being. What understanding did you inherit and how has that evolved? Yeah, I love that question. And I'm finding that I'm spontaneously recalling events from my childhood, my father was a businessman, not connected in any way with academics. And I remember times when the details aren't what's critical here, but situations where he was in a business relationship with someone and I remember very distinctly that there was an agreement to these individuals were not able to pay for something that had been agreed upon. And I remember my father working out some kind of water arrangement. And..

"On this valuation. And so the other thing was is that he always seemed kind of crazy with the things that he was talking about. How he was going to run in Israel for office. And how he was going to turn this lifestyle and to work. They seem to live on a different planet. It was always like, what is he talking about when you listen to some of this stuff? And obviously some people believed it. But then it just felt like, okay, the market at some point said the emperor was wearing no clothes. And that's just kind of seems how it all fell apart around that. The other thing is so interesting that he's not down at the New York Stock Exchange yesterday. They don't want him there. I'm sure he wasn't invited to come up on the belt. This is like Travis kalanick, when Uber came out. And by the way, this guy makes Travis kalanick look pretty good. In retrospect.

Vaccines for kids vaccine boosters and the U.S. Surgeon General. Doctor Vivek Murthy.

Start your free trial today. At CNBC dot com slash pro. Welcome back to squawk pad today with Becky quick and Andrew Ross Sorkin. This morning, the CDC approved booster shots from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson's COVID vaccines. The agency recommended the Moderna booster for elderly people and at risk adults 6 months after they got their second shot, and the CDC endorsed J&J boosters for everyone 18 and older who received the initial shot at least two months ago. Those boosters could all be available as soon as today. Now, the big question we've all been asking, can we mix and match vaccines? The panel didn't specify which vaccine should be used as a booster and instead suggested doctors decide whether to mix and match the company's vaccines on a case by case basis. Also this morning, big news from Pfizer, the company submitted FDA briefing documents detailing results of its clinical trial for kids, as it turns out, Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine was more than 90% effective in kids age 5 to 11. Becky and Andrew spoke to the U.S. Surgeon General, doctor Vivek Murthy this morning. Here's Becky. Doctor, thank you for being here. Of course, it's good to be with you today. So there's been a lot of confusion around the booster shots. At this point, anybody anybody who's had a J&J vaccine is eligible for a booster shot. People over the age of 65 are eligible for it. And then there are a lot of other qualifications of people who are at heightened risk for that as well. I think the question is, is this they are eligible for this and can get it? Or are you saying they should? Well, that's a great question. So let's just review what the FDA and CDC are recommending. They're saying number one, if you are a Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipient. And if you're someone who got the vaccine two months ago or more, that you are now eligible for a booster shot. Second, they're saying if you got the Moderna Pfizer vaccine and you're more than 6 months out, you are eligible as well if you fall into one of three high risk categories, you over 65, you've got other medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure that puts you at higher risk or you live and work in a place where your risk of exposure COVID is greater. You know, in terms of whether you should get that or whether it's just a possibility or my general recommendation is for people to get the booster of their eligible. And here's why, because the point of the boosters is to extend and enhance the already good protection that people have been getting from the vaccine. We know that some vaccines many vaccines that we've looked at over time. Some of them do decrease in their efficacy over over time. It doesn't mean the vaccines don't work well. It just means sometimes they need a boost to keep the protection going. We have heard this week that in the UK, the numbers have increased pretty drastically to the point where it is concerned doctors and hospitals in that country. And they are now asking for some restrictions to be put back in, whether that be wearing face masks or other issues. Do you know why the case count is up there? Is it because the vaccines efficacy is worn off? Is it because there haven't been enough vaccinated people or something else? Well, there could be several factors accounting for the UK's rise in cases. But one of them that I'll point to is the fact that it's getting colder and when the weather gets colder, we know that people go indoors and indoor settings are a better setups for the spread of COVID-19 than outdoor settings. We also know that the virus in general is better transmitted in cold weather, which is why you see so many respiratory viruses spread during the winter months. Look, we had a big search last winter here in the United States. What's different now for us in the U.S. is we have 190 million people who are fully vaccinated. So it means there are about 65 million people who are eligible who are not fully vaccinated. And that's where we've got a lot of work to do because we want as many people as possible to protection that will help keep our numbers down as winter approaches. One group that has not been allowed to be vaccinated at this point are children, anybody under the age of 12, we're anticipating that that approval will come in the next couple of weeks, how confident are you in that approval? And then what concerns do you have on the news? We just heard from Pfizer saying that 90.9 .7% efficacy is there in these clinical trials for kids aged 5 to 11, but they also admit that the trial is not big enough to really determine if there's a detective if there's any potential risks of myocarditis. Well, look, this is a very important landmark that we are approaching, which is a possibility having a vaccine for kids under 12. I say that not just as Surgeon General and as a doctor, but as a dad of two kids who are under 12 who has been eagerly waiting this moment. The FDA is reviewing the data right now. And within the next few weeks, I anticipate we will hear a decision from them. Their advisory committee is meeting later this month, the CDC advisory committee's meeting in the first week of November and soon after that we should have recommendations from them on what to do. Here's also what's important to know about kids, though. The FDA is going to look very carefully at two parameters. One is this vaccine effective in our kids under 12. And number two is it safe. You know, as a parent, I want to know the answer to those two questions before I make a decision on getting my child vaccinated. I think millions of parents do as well. So they will not put forward a recommendation to get vaccinated if they don't feel confident about the safety. Now, finally, to your point about rare side effects, there are a reason that we continue to follow people after getting a vaccine, even after the trials and the authorization is given, because if they're rare side effects, really rare side effects, you may not see them. You know, until millions and millions of people have been vaccinated. Again, the point here is that there's going to be likely strong benefit to the getting vaccinated if the FDA chooses to authorize it because we know there's a lot of COVID around. We know COVID is not benign in children, hundreds of children have died from it. Thousands have been hospitalized. And many have struggled now with long COVID, which are the prolonged symptoms of COVID.

"Over 90% effective for children, what's next with the U.S. Surgeon General, doctor Vivek Murthy? The FDA is going to look very carefully at two parameters.

We're talking to the founder of spanx, Sara blakely. This brand has so much global awareness and it'll be fun to be able to actually really start to deliver and provide products all around the world. Those stories plus snap has snapped its stock at least, and WeWork's first day of trading. It's Friday, October 22nd, 2021. Squawk pod begins right now. Stand Becky by in three, two, one, kill please. Good morning, everybody. Welcome to squawk box here on CNBC. We are live from the NASDAQ market site in Times Square. I'm Becky quick along with Andrew Ross Sorkin, Joe is out today. A lot of things happening. Snap shares, they're plunging. Do you reuse that? No, but our kids too. It is by far for teenagers. The most their most beloved network just because Instagram is for parents and told. Well, Instagram, they'll use once in a while for artsy pictures, but they're way of communicating with their friends is snap. So if they had to give up all but one of the social media snap would be the one that was interesting. Okay. Well, the company, despite all of that, that good news from quick family says that ad sales are being hurt by the privacy changes that Apple rolled out to iOS earlier this year. It's making it harder for companies to sell ads based on information they collect on users interests and locations now. Snap slump also impacting other major social media stocks, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest all down this morning as a result of it. This was, I think, to be expected, though they said they didn't expect it to be this bad. The online advertising players like trade desk magnite and liver ramp are also coming under a bit of pressure. But this is a lot of things that kind of are conspiring at this point. The New York Times had that story about Facebook, was it over the weekend? Right. Looking into it. And their concerns were that teen users weren't using as frequently. It had gone up to three to four hours during the pandemic, and maybe that is not going to not only continue to climb, but that's going to come back down by an hour or so a day because kids have other things that they're doing. And I think that must be impacting all of these social networks to some extent. My question to you, though, is when you get a new app on your phone, and it says allow you to track. No. You say no, I know. So you say no. I think most people probably say no. And so I do think this is probably a much harder business to be in if you are Facebook or a snap or somebody who relies on advertising. I think teenagers tend to not say no as much. Do you think because they like having their first of all, they like tracking where all of them are, and they keep track with each other and just do that and you can't do that if you don't turn it on on the phone. So I think teens are less likely to say those things. But it does show that these changes with the Apple privacy issues are going to be a much bigger impact that the market probably didn't really figure out. It's the weakness that you have for all of these apps is they're not collecting the first party data necessarily themselves. They were relying on Apple to do it and they can also say the other side. Which is I noticed the ads for me on Instagram are not as good as these to me. Oh, they work for me. I mean, you work for you. I bought this dress from an ad on Instagram. So they definitely captured me with some of the things, but I'm not the target audience by a long shot on anything. Oh no, you are. We all are. Well, anybody with money, I suppose is, but not for the ones that they're really caring about with the teens and going through. And the other thing about the millennial. That's hard. That. But what I will say is the other issue is there's not going to be as much advertising right now. The supply chain issues I kept thinking about that. If you are somebody like a Mattel or another company that can't get enough of your product in for Christmas time, how much are you actually going to be paying attention? You don't need to spend on advertising if everything is selling out before you place a single dime on advertising. So I think all of these issues are kind of coming together. Coming together at one time, and this is after the stock has had a really big run up. So all of those factors kind of together. However, we are seeing a tale of two tech giants this morning. While apple's privacy changes are slamming social players, Google slash the fees that subscription based apps are charged for the Play Store that they have. And that's in a number of the stocks that kind of rely on that surging yesterday among them. You've had duolingo, which was up by 13%. Match group, up by 10%, bumble up by 8% and then Roblox up by 6%. It's in my global market news this morning, shares of ever grand, they're on the rise. This is what happened. Overseas trading after the Chinese property developer reportedly made a bond payment battle company reportedly made the roughly $83 million payment today after missing it though last month, that triggering a 30 day grace period, which was set to expire tomorrow. Of course, now the question is, has ever grant going to miss I'm sorry, it would have entered a default if it hadn't, but there are additional payments that are to come. So this story is not over yet. You know, it just said tale of two city with tales of technology. It's the same thing here. If you are a Chinese investor, you're much better off than if you are an overseas investor who's been relying on these things that it's the overseas investors who very likely, China doesn't care about that at this point. They are much more concerned about their own economy. And by the way, you took the risk on this. So it is concerned about the rule of law see what happens and investor beware at this point if you're coming from overseas. I think. I'm with you. Wait. We are watching shares of WeWork this morning. The stock popping more than 13% yesterday as the office sharing firm finally went public through a spac deal caps a long journey for a company that was once valued as high as about $47 billion, but its initial IPO plans imploded as you remember back in 2019, while the company's leaders were at the NYSE for the opening bell where we were, founder Adam Newman was holding his own little party of sorts with dozens of former employees and his cofounder yesterday morning at the bell. Thank you all so much for coming. Miguel and I couldn't be happier than to celebrate this with our original team. We're just so proud today and for this day. And we just want to congratulate the current WeWork team. Everyone congratulate Marcelo and Sandeep for executing on this team's vision. It's an interesting dynamic because here's a guy who did create something that's obviously now of value, $10 billion of value, not 47 billion dollars of value. Clearly made a lot of mistakes along the way. The company could have demonstrably imploded. And so how much credit do you give them or don't give him for what's happened? He clearly caught the right trend, but then made lots of mistakes. Are you recognized? I mean, because his public persona has never been one that seems to take on any sort of remorse for the implosion that took place. Granted, this did wonderfully yesterday. The IPO came out well. But that's because when you're looking at 10 billion, that's the 46 billion that they got. This is the part I always look. I think there were some conflicts of interest which we talked a lot about before in terms of at one point he was buying buildings and renting them to WeWork. There were the issues of plane and governance and how the company was used selling the trademarks back and forth. But then when you say to yourself about the valuation who created the valuation, I don't believe that the valuation was created by Adam Newman. And the valuation was created by bankers and investors and frankly folks like masa son at SoftBank who were willing to do that. Now, the flip side is, all of a sudden, you have this valuation, then you go out and hire new employees and say.

I just share town my mind a lot. Is we talk about nearly as much with this. Pandemic is is really the cost to our mental health and wellbeing You know this has been incredibly difficult year and almost year and a half now for everyone in the country it does matter you You know a richer poor if you're living in urban or rural area issue. Are you end up getting cooler. It or not panama's is affected all of our lives in outweigh and turned it upside down it some much much harder than others with it all of us in some way and what i worry about is that looked to future is the about how we're gonna contend with that impact on our out the mental health and our wellbeing you know the rates of depression and anxiety increased significantly during the pandemic including among young people who were struggling with high rates have anxiety and depression and suicide the or dependent like began so i think we have this opportunity john as we think about coming out this pandemic we've opportunity to think proactively about two things one. How do we really address. Mental health country talk about really honestly provide investment prevention. That works actually made an investment. Had we provide real treatment accessible high-quality treatment of people who've been struggling for too long the second thing without a lot of conversation about what we want our close pandemic look if we don't do anything differently But just keep moving forward. We will snap back to twenty nineteen how lived our life before the pandemic. But if you're like me. I unlike many out there. You probably had moments for you. During the pandemic maybe hispanic about how wanna live my life differently. Maybe something that you realize about spend more time with your family or maybe it's something you'd realize about.

It's something that our office will be working on how to support a larger series of conversations around the post pandemic life and if we approach typing in an open helping on sway. My hope is that we can build the lights. That is more fulfilling. Fear in certainly happier for many of us in the life even before i agree. That's such an incredibly important conversation to have about about mental health and wellbeing. And i do think like. I think that one small step we can all take as sort of give each other a break. Extend some some kindness and grace to everyone else. Because i've been thinking this throughout the pandemic is everyone is always going through something that you may not know right and they and however you've dealt with the pandemic you can't know for sure what someone else has gone through the last year and so it's a it's a good opportunity to to show some kindness and that doesn't fix everything but it's a it's one small step at the beginning a long way and he. It's beautifully powerful is one of the most our resources a healing that we have that as doctors written prescriptions for many medicines that intended to heal over the years. I've been struck time and time again. Adds missing concessions really go a long way and if we learned one thing from this pandemic john extent. We need each other city as much as we able to do on our own. We can't get through difficult times. Like pandemics the arches solely on our own.

Walking around who feel like their value and their worth is not significant. Wonder at times if they're really bringing anything to the world around them.

It's also just such a fuck you to this. Susan collins of the world right who said oh after the first impeachment. He's gonna he's gonna learn his lesson right and it's it's it's a reminder also think of why the only thing that works with trump is taking away his power deterrence doesn't work appeasement doesn't work ignoring him doesn't work right only thing. That works is beating him. That's the only thing he understand. And and i. It's worth noting that the that was a what he was he was comparing himself to. Bill barr his attorney general. Bill barr who was a supplicant. To donald trump. For virtually all the time he was attorney. General believes in basically unlimited presidential. Power did a ton to to to to. What's it called in football and you block for somebody. Run blocking sure. Run blocking pass blocking run blocking for him. What kind of player we like. It's when somebody's in front of somebody with the ball. Kind of like i'm bill. Barr was the fullback in this. Now option your blocks buck you nailed it the first time you put in the comments. There's more specific thing and he the point is what's the lesson here is he is he is again. He is now saying that. Bill barr gaunt. He's few still fears that that atlantic bill barr mcconnell kind of betrayed him on behalf of the democrats not because they thought it was an up because he was doing what he thought. Was you know a hint of the right thing but because it was a part of the deeper betrayal by the same thing with brick kavanagh right. We majoring bright cavanaugh. And he said oh well because brad. Cavanaugh was almost not confirmed because the democrats went after him that's why he didn't vote to believe it. Of course he said that's why he voted with the democrats as if if everything is like an election a competition when he really meant that like the supreme court rejected the absurd fucking claims from donald trump in his right crack legal team about voter fraud. He said bill barr got intimidated by an impeachment threat. Out of doing a whole bunch of things punching a bunch of enemies including I guess arresting. He said the women who slandered and defamed brad kavanagh so like the people came forward to accuse break. Cavanaugh of sexual assault trump suggested in. This speech should have been punished in some way. It was really a dark fucked up and the whole point. He was making his dark. Which is democrats play tough. They don't play nice and maybe now we need to play. Yeah matt we can't. We shouldn't get up. We tried to burn the fucking cabaret. I thought that was tough. But that's why it's so fucking scary. He's telling them like no no they still play dirtier we gotta match them. That was the point of that part of the and also he. He went on that. You know obviously ige thinks cavenaugh was mistreated during hearings and then he makes the point that the reason that the conservative scream court is actually behaving like a democratic court is the threat of court packing because he can't allow even that they have any kind of power. You can't tell this audience like at least we have. The supreme court ruled to protect voting rights. On behalf there are the trailer and everything's grievance and you'll win yes that's right that's exactly right. There's there's one more clip that's that's kind of funny.

It's scary to see these like rightwing militia groups in there. I mean that stuff is terrifying. You have anything else. it's interesting. How many conspiracy theories involve like practice runs.

"A younger people are well aware of what the risks really love it. Do you get the sense that a lot of republican politicians and especially republican media. Figures are more openly anti vaccine lately. Why do you think they're going down this path. Frank franklin's told andy. Slap it on his pod today that Trump is sending out fundraising mailers claiming that people are dying from the vaccines. Yeah i mean they are. I think a couple things are happening one. This is in extension of cova does overblown so implicit. A lot of this is. Oh if you're older if you're an risk category you should get vaccinated but no one else needs to get vaccinated. Because they're lying about how it's still they. They don't recognize how it can still hurt younger people and they don't recognize mutual obligation. I guess even if you accept that premise. Why wouldn't you get this vaccine. It's harmless obviously and we'll protect the older people who are more vulnerable The other piece of it is that we've sort of hit the the kind of threshold removed from scarcity in this country to now it is time to go to local persuasion now it is time to go to like trusted people in communities to get that last group of people vaccinated so then i put that gives them an opportunity. They can prevent it from succeeding. That's a goal. They can feed conspiratorial mindset. The goal they keep the attention of their broken viewers who are easily pulled by an and newsmax which are more conspiratorial. And then when you talk about things like eating to go inside of communities they can kind of fan. The flames of this is some door to door effort to kind of force people to get the vaccine. And because tucker carlson and laura ingram don't care if people live or die and are completely valueless. it's an opportunity for them to so chaos and the republicans. Just follow them along permission to float a conspiracy theory her permission. Thank you see madison. Cawthorn said that the reason they were going door to door for vaccinations was to prepare to eventually take away. Your gun in your bible. I did not see that. I knew i saw madison stupid. That madison cawthorn said was trending. But i did not do not look into it because it was a good one. Well nobody like the governor of let me. I have a way worse conspiracy right part of my love of saying like fao cheese. The new bogeyman binds boring. Here's the other thing. I want to the conspiracy theory for you so kristi nome. May this oblique attack on republican governors. Who say they didn't lock down. But they really lockdown. It's just sort of viewed as an oblique shot at ron to santa's You think she's doing this as a stalking horse for the trump family who's now worried about the santa's well you're deepen all. That's i read enough cpac. I missed the christie known thing though. That's yes it was. It was like the kristi noem thing. It's so many it's so many levels of bullshit deep. It's like hey you may get the impression that some of these republican governors Did the wrong thing. Don't let them lie to you. About how wrong they were. Some of them were right and we should hold them accountable to raise. That's the known position. I made sure that my state was leading the country and capita deaths. Can ronda sant. Santa say that no he cannot. I think the the antibac- sort of trend now in the republican party now that it's becoming more mainstream. Republican party really does fit with the larger story. They're trying to tell which is you can't trust the radical left and the radical left is now taking over all of our institutions and now they're in power and they're going to constantly make you do shit that you don't want to do they're going to force things in your life and if they give you a vaccine you can't trust that vaccine from the radical left just like you can't trust them teaching things in schools and you can't trust them that they're going to you know they're going to try to take away your free speech right like it has all of sort of peace here. That's overwhelming theme. The the the liberals are going to take stuff from you in the far right wing of the republican party are we are the only ones who can stop them guns freedom of speech your facebook feed cova restrictions funding for cops the border and then eventually it got to trump who is like and they took the result of the election from you right. The there was somebody wandering. Washington post found somebody wandering around cpac which you know looked to be any really any big political gathering. Has this of person it. You know a backpack covered in buttons lot of red string of big sign with strings from george soros to champ biden like back and forth lines all over the place and that was always taken as this sort of status quo ante like there are these infringe figures with conspiracy theories but now like you have former national security advisers doing events taking pictures in front of the same kind of thing. Donald trump is like a red string guy now standing in front of this group of people and madison. Cawthorn saying that they're going to go door to door to take your bibles guns like this vaccination effort which they're obviously there is no national door to door campaign but this is a dry run for some future nefarious. Act like the that is now at the center of the republican party. That's but it's also like you know everything. Everything new is old. Right i it. It reminds you in brian. Butler wrote about this In his newsletter last week it reminds you of the death panels and fury over obamacare in twenty ten right. Which is the government's gonna decide whether you live or die now. It's the government's going to go door to door and make you take this vaccine that we're not sure we know. Do we really know. What senate do we really know if it safe. Donald johnny deserves credit for it deserves credit for it in the the classic grievance politics true and it's it's highly racial and trump made more explicit than ever before when he was saying horrible things about mexicans during announcement speech.

Kamla has the day shift for Operating joe biden like weekend at bernie's that clip will be used on ben shapiro. Show hi everybody all right. Let's get to the news. Donald trump unsurprisingly dominated this year's conservative political action committee or cpac that was held in dallas texas over the weekend. You got the prime speaking slot. He crushed the straw poll of attendees and every other speaker. Basically parroted olive. Trump's lies and grievances. Did you hear him crying about his time slot. It was a two and a half minutes of his speech whining about getting sunday a match slap. He'd give me your worse times. We actually did blah blah blah. He lives that he was android. Who is angry that he didn't get friday night or saturday night. I mean he really is just a tour. I thought that was the prime time sunday afternoon. Right he's knowing compares physical and gulf so we will have a lot more on the former president and a bit. But i do want to start with some other notable cpac moments Like a painting of trump hugging and kissing the flag that went for twenty five thousand dollars. the founder of the insurrectionist militia known as the oath keepers was seen enjoying a beer And here's how the audience reacted when they heard the federal government didn't meet its vaccination goal by july fourth. They were hoping the government was hoping that they sort of sucker ninety percent of the population into getting vaccinated and it and it isn't happening right..
The State of Vaccinations in the U.S.
"Alison. Over the weekend rhode island became the eighth state to reach a goal set by president biden to get seventy percent of adults vaccinated with at least one shot by july. Fourth is the rest of the country on track lost so far. Many of the smaller northeastern states have reached this goal. I including maine massachusetts vermont and new jersey nationwide about sixty one percent of adults have received their first dose and very close to half are now fully vaccinated so this is all good news but in states. Vaccinations remain much lower including alabama mississippi. Arkansas utah it's kind of unclear. I mean nationwide. The number of daily. Vaccinations has declined over the last month. Part of this. Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates. It turns out that they can also help the close. The equity gallon. Vaccinations and you know. In recent weeks mega retailers including target and walmart have announced compensation and incentives for hourly employees who get vaccinated some employees have been offered cash bonuses. Yeah in house and can we take a second to talk about what is going on in my home state of ohio right now. I saw my parents this weekend and they were telling me what they were going to do. When they won the vaccine million. Yes oh hi. Oh has gotten a ton of attention for this lottery program so for the next five weeks beginning. This week there will be a one million dollar lottery. Draw for people who get their first dose of the pfizer or moderna vaccine or the one dose of j. and j. other states have jumped on this lottery bandwagon oregon kentucky maryland in new york ruled out something called the vaccine scratch initiative with that four million dollar possible when so ohio was really touting. Some pretty impressive numbers in terms of a boost in vaccinations. And i think it's surprising. Just how well lotteries may work. I talked to a behavioral economist about this katie milkman at the university of pennsylvania and your parents might appreciate this mattie the hijack pot is really alluring and feels like a game and because we overweight small probability that we might win and wonderful coke. They're really highly motivating. There's lots of research showing that lotteries can be used to change all sorts of other health
35% of Americans Are Fully Vaccinated Against Coronavirus
"According to the cdc more than thirty five percent of the us population is already fully vaccinated and over forty. Six percent of the population has gotten at least one dose. Some health officials have said eighty percent of americans would need to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity but today at the wall street journal's future of everything festival surgeon general vivek murthy says he's focusing more on vaccination and infection rates herd. Immunity is not a switch on and off where suddenly we hit the threshold. There's own action. This is more of a. I would say incremental improvement they will see with with some big jumps along the way he also said. A vaccine waiver would be a step to increase global supply vaccines needed. And he's not concerned that sharing the intellectual property of covid nineteen vaccine patents will make drug manufacturers less interested in developing vaccines in the future in my conversations with a number of the companies who the past many months. I know that One that they know that the these markets are gonna be robust. They're going to be there for them in the future. But i think they also recognize that there are moments like this when all of us have to step up whether governments or companies or individuals and figure out how we're gonna vaccinate the world in the most accessible way

Loneliness and Litigation: A Lawyer's Case Study
"Doctor. Freiberg welcome to the show. Thank you so very much dr freiberg. We are here to discuss loneliness. And i promise. We're going to get to that. But i'd be remiss if i didn't ask your thoughts on the differences between being a social psychologist and a lawyer. What's that like well. It proved interesting for me. I became a social psychologist. I and i was professor for a decade at boston university. And then i had a chance to go across the river and go to harvard law school so i wasn't gonna turn that down. I became a lawyer and then it pretty quickly became clear that criss crossing the to expertise gave me of field of work. It was unlike anybody else. No one else in in boston. Had both degrees and they're pretty quickly became what was sort of called around towns. The site lawyer. Boston's psych lawyer so institutions and agencies anything to do with psychiatry or psychology or clinical. Social work asked me to be their general counsel and it was in the context of being general counsel that i heard about so many clinical cases and that became the material for my research. You define loneliness differently from others. Can you tell us about that. Indeed what i thought. I discovered over thirty five years of being council to a great percentage of boston. Psychiatrists psychologists and clinical social workers was that they kept reporting more and more loneliness sure. Their clients had other issues as well but the clients kept talking about being enormously disconnected from others not having anybody to live with anybody in their life nobody to call more and more as the years went by loneliness became ever more present. I started just think about this topic and the more i researched it. It struck me that loneliness is not an emotion like anger or happiness. It's a sensation like hunger or thirst so just since our body tells us up were hungry thirsty it also says. I feel really lonely and disconnected. After hearing that definition it makes a little more sense this next statement because you consider chronic loneliness a public health crisis of the first order. They surgeon general of the united states. Vivek murthy the nineteenth surgeon general about a decade ago said we are actually experienced an epidemic of loneliness about thirty five percent of the american population in two thousand ten reported feeling chronically lonely and what i mean by that we all feel lonely from time to time. How could we not. But that's not like being chronically. Lonely just like being sad it's not like being clinically depressed. As a huge difference. Chronic loneliness is in the land in the last fifty years evermore so and it correlates with much worse health in much shorter life span. So it's serious. It sounds very serious but one of the things that i keep thinking about is people are enmeshed around other people may have social media so even when you're at home you're around other people. We work in offices. Now i know cove it has changed that a little bit but i just. I'm trying to think of the last time that i was truly alone. And i can't come up with it even as i sit here interviewing you. My phone will ding. I'm never not surrounded by people. I guess my question is how can people still feel so lonely. Given how connected our world is. But that's the key question because there are two pathways to loan one. Pathway is being alone being isolated being disconnected but a different pathway is being surrounded by people as you described but not benefiting from those relationships not feeling nourished not feeling nurtured not feeling sues. People are objectively lonely. 'cause they're all divorced off from anybody they don't have anybody in their lives but just as many people become chronically lonely surrounded by others

You mean you mean take one of them and make them the head of health and human services make them the head of health and human services, or at least give them a new position a new title within his administration.
