And And what what else else can can you you possibly possibly say say to to them? them? Well, Well, I mean, I mean, the the travel travel that that has has been been done done has has been been done done right right now now is is people people go go back? back? We want We want to to urge urge them. them. If they've If they've been been in situations in situations outside outside of of the the family family setting setting in in which which they they really really don't don't know know the level the level of of exposure exposure to to be be really really careful careful when when you you either either return return from from the place the place that that you you went. went. Other Other people people come come back back into into your your house. house. That you've That you've really really got got to understand to understand the importance the importance of of trying trying to to prevent prevent further further spread spread and and further further surge surge that that maybe maybe when when you you go go back back to to where where you you came came from, from, if if it's it's possible possible to to quarantine quarantine yourself yourself for for a a period period of time, of time, or or even even get get tested tested to to make make sure sure That you're That you're not not bringing bringing infection infection back back to to another another place place being being another another home home or or another another family. family. Having Having said said that that we we have have to to be be careful careful now now because because they're they're almost almost certainly certainly is is going going to be to be an an uptick uptick because because of of what what has has happened happened with with the travel. the travel. We We understand. understand. The importance The importance of of family family is getting is getting together together and and it's it's just just something something that that we we have have to to deal deal with with that that we we likely likely will will have have an an increase increase in in cases cases as as we we get get into into the the colder colder weeks. weeks. Of the Of the winter. winter. And And as as we we approach approach the Christmas the Christmas season, season, please please don't don't forget forget the the standard standard public public health health measures measures that that we we talk talk about about The reason The reason I I say say that that a a moth moth and and and and almost almost plead plead with with people people is is that that we we do do know know That it That it does does work. work. Countries Countries that that have have mitigated mitigated have have turned turned around around the surge. the surge. States States that that have have mitigated mitigated have have had had a a turnaround turnaround of the of the inflection inflection of of the the curb. curb. So So it it does does work. work. And And as as we've we've just just heard, heard, help help is is on on the the way way Vaccines Vaccines a a really really right right on on the the horizon. horizon. Will Will be be having having vaccines vaccines available available for for the the higher higher priority priority people people towards towards the the middle middle and and end end of of December December and and as as we we get get into into January January and and February, February, so so everyone everyone is is totally totally empathetic. empathetic. About About the the fatigue fatigue that that everyone everyone is is feeling. feeling. But But if we if we can can hang hang in in there, there, hang hang in in there there a a bit bit longer longer and and do do the fundamental the fundamental things things wearing wearing of of mask mask uniformly uniformly avoiding avoiding crowds crowds and and congregate congregate settings, settings, keeping keeping physical physical distance distance washing washing your your hands. hands. They They seem seem simple simple in in the the enormity enormity of of the problem. the problem. That we're That we're facing, facing, But But they they do do make make a a difference. difference. Dr. Dr. Fauci Fauci pleaded pleaded before before the the beginning. beginning. Yeah, Yeah, Doc Doc Doctor Doctor Fauci. Fauci. You You have have said said that that again again and and again again and and again. again. We We saw saw all all those those people people traveling. traveling. So So you you know know what's what's coming. coming. And And with with Christmas Christmas just just around around the corner, the corner, do do you you think think will will be be under under the the same same restrictions restrictions that that you you recommended? recommended? On Thanksgiving On Thanksgiving going going into into Christmas. Christmas. You You know, know, Martha, Martha, I I can't can't see see how how we're we're not not gonna gonna have have the the same same thing thing because because when when you you have have the the kind kind of inflection of inflection that that we we have, have, it it doesn't doesn't all of all of a sudden a sudden turn turn around around like like that. that. So So clearly, clearly, in in the the next next few few weeks, weeks, we're we're gonna gonna have have the the same same sort sort of thing. of thing. And And perhaps perhaps even even two two or or three three weeks weeks down down the the line, line, Martha, Martha, we we may may see see a a surge surge upon upon a a surge. surge. You You know, we know, we don't don't want want to frighten to frighten people. people. But But that's that's just just the the reality. reality. We We said said that that these these things things would would happen. happen. As we As we got got into into the the cold cold weather, weather, and and as as we we began began traveling, traveling, and and they've they've happened, happened, it's it's gonna gonna happen happen again. again. So So I I cannot cannot see see all all of of a a sudden sudden a a relax relax ation ation of of the kinds the kinds of of recommendations recommendations or or restrictions restrictions because because we're we're getting getting into into colder colder weather weather and and enough enough in in even even larger larger holiday holiday season season as as people people travel travel to to come come back back and and forth. forth. For Christmas, For Christmas, so so I I don't don't see see a a relax relax ation ation of of the kind the kind of of recommendations recommendations and and restrictions restrictions that that we've we've made. made. And And Dr Dr Factually. Factually. The Supreme The Supreme Court Court on on Wednesday Wednesday struck struck down down New New York's York's Covad Covad restrictions restrictions on on religious religious gatherings gatherings in in the state. the state. How How concerned concerned are you are you about about legal legal challenges challenges to to pandemic pandemic restrictions restrictions going going forward? forward? Well, Well, I I mean, mean, they they happened, happened, Martha. Martha. There's There's nothing nothing I I could could do about do about it. it. I I just just keep keep saying saying that that when when people people ask ask me me for for Opinions Opinions of of specific specific things things rather rather than than make make a a comment comment on on a a specific specific things. things. I I could could just just say say it it doesn't doesn't matter matter who who you you are are where where you you are, are, when when you have you have congregate congregate settings, settings, particularly particularly indoors. indoors. When When people people are not are not wearing wearing masks, masks, that that is is a a considerable considerable risk risk for for acquisition acquisition and and spread spread of of infection, infection, no no matter matter what what the circumstances the circumstances that that is is a a risk. risk. And And you you said said there there should should be more be more regular regular testing testing available available for for asymptomatic asymptomatic people. people. How How soon soon do do you think you think before before Americans Americans could could have have inexpensive inexpensive home home tests? tests? And And why why haven't haven't they they so so far? far? Well, Well, I I hope hope it's it's sooner sooner rather rather than than later, later, Martha. Martha. I mean I mean they they obviously obviously we've we've done done better better in in testing testing than than we we did did early early on on in the in beginning. the beginning. But you're But you're talking talking about about different different kinds kinds and and different different motivations motivations and and different different objectives objectives of of testing. testing. If If you're you're trying trying to find to find out out if if a a person person is is infected infected either either for for contact contact tracing tracing or or what what have have you you then then you you want want a a highly highly sensitive sensitive test test that that might might take take a a day day or or two two to to get get a a result result back. back. When When you're you're trying trying to find to find out out what what the the extent extent of of the community the community spread spread is is that that is is driven driven very very clearly, clearly, at at least least in in part part by by asymptomatic asymptomatic spread, spread, so so we we need need to to know know the extent the extent of of the the asymptomatic. asymptomatic. The only The only way way you you know know that that is is what what you you just just asked asked for. for. And I And I would would like like to to have have seen seen it it already. already. And And I hope I hope that that we we get get it soon. it soon. Rapid, Rapid, sensitive, sensitive, specific specific home home testing testing even even one one that that you you might might not not even even need need a a prescription prescription for for so so that that people people can can have have within within their their own own power power to to know know whether whether or or not not it it is is in in his his highly highly sensitive sensitive is is the the other, other, but but it it is is very very helpful, helpful, particularly particularly if if you you do do it it over over and and over over again. again. I hope I hope we we get get that that soon. soon. And And Dr Dr Fauci Fauci in New in York New York City City Public Public school school shut shut down down again again earlier earlier this this month. month. I I know know your your default default position position is is that that you'd you'd like like to to see see the the skull skull schools schools open. open. But But how how do do you you make make that that happen? happen? And And how how would would you you advise advise the the incoming incoming Biden Biden administration administration on on getting getting a a sort sort of unified of unified response? response? Well, Well, you you know, know, Martha, Martha, that's that's a a good good question. question. We get We get asked asked that all that all the the time. time. You You know, we know, we say say it it not not being being facetiously facetiously as as a a sound sound bite bite or anything, or anything, but but you you know, know, Closed Closed the boss the boss and and keep keep the the school's school's open open is is what what we really we really say. say. Obviously, Obviously, you you don't don't have have one one size size fits fits all. all. But But as as I I said said in in the past, the past, and and as as you you accurately accurately quoted quoted me me The default The default position position should should be be to to try try his his best best this this possible possible within within reason reason to keep to keep the the Children Children in school in school to to get get them them back back to school. to school. The The best best way way to to ensure ensure the the safety safety of of the Children the Children in school in school is is to to get get the community the community level level of of spread spread low. low. So So if if you you mitigate mitigate the things the things that that you you know, know, are are causing causing spread spread In a In a very, very, very very profound profound way way in in a a robust robust way. way. If If you you bring bring that that down, down, you you will will then then indirectly indirectly and and ultimately ultimately protect protect the Children the Children in the in school the school because because the the community community level level is is determined determined how how things things go go across across the the board. board. So my So my feeling feeling would would be the be the same same thing. thing. If If you you look look at at the the data, data, the spread the spread among among Children Children and and from from Children Children is is not not really really very very big big at at all, all, not not like like one one would would have have suspected. suspected. So So let's let's try try to to get get the the kids kids back. back. But But let's let's try try to to mitigate mitigate the the things things that that maintain maintain and and and and just just push push the the kind kind of community of community spread spread that that we're we're trying trying to avoid. to avoid. And And those those other other things things that that you you know know well, well, the the bars bars the the restaurants restaurants where where you have you have capacity capacity seating seating indoors indoors without without masks. masks. Those Those of of the things the things that that drive drive the the community community spread, spread, not not the the schools schools and and and and Dr Dr fracture. fracture. You You talked talked about about the the vaccine vaccine and and the availability the availability of of the the vaccine. vaccine. The government The government Can't Can't force force everyone everyone to take to take the vaccine. the vaccine. So So what what about about schools? schools? Companies? Companies? Employers? Employers? Can Can they they mandate mandate of vaccine of vaccine like like in in other other vaccines? vaccines? You You know know any any individual individual group group command command eight eight vaccines vaccines in in certain certain ways, ways, Martha, Martha, It's It's not. not. I I believe believe going going to come to come centrally. centrally. I I don't don't want want to get to get ahead ahead of of the game the game there, there, but but I I doubt doubt that. that. That would That would happen. happen. For For example, example, right right now, now, myself. myself. I I mean, mean, I'm I'm at at the the NIH NIH Clinical Clinical Center. Center. I'm I'm a a physician. physician. I I see see patients. patients. I I have have to to get get the the influenza influenza vaccine vaccine or or I'm I'm not not gonna gonna be able be able to see to see patients, patients, so so individual individual units units be be they they hospitals hospitals or or other other organizations. organizations. Can't Can't do do that. that. It's It's within within their their right right to to say. say. If If you you want want to work to work with with us, us, you're you're gonna gonna have have to to get get a vaccine. a vaccine. But But that's that's not not going going to be, to be, I I believe, believe, essentially essentially mandated mandated process process and and Dr Dr Factory. Factory. There There are are concerns concerns about about the the anti anti vaccination vaccination movement movement and and infectious infectious to to see see disease disease specialists specialists in Boston, in Boston, telling telling the Boston the Boston Globe Globe the same the same energy energy that that was was placed placed into into development development and and distribution distribution of a of a Corona Corona virus. virus. Vaccine Vaccine should should have have been been placed placed in in messaging messaging and and community community engagement. engagement. Do you Do you agree agree with with that? that? Oh, Oh, absolutely. absolutely. We We have have to to engage engage the the community. community. Martha Martha B. B. Because Because we we do do have have a a degree degree of of anti anti vax vax to to begin begin with. with. But But then then there's there's skepticism skepticism about about this this vaccine. vaccine. So So we've we've got got to be to be able able to to get get out out there there get get community community people people who who the the community community trust trust to show to show two two things. things. The process The process of of the the development development of of this this vaccine vaccine has has been been one one that that has has been been scientifically scientifically sound sound safety safety has has not not been been compromised. compromised. Scientific Scientific integrity integrity has has not not been been compromised compromised and and the process the process Of determining Of determining whether whether it it works. works. Whether Whether it's it's safe safe and and effective, effective, has has been been independent independent by by independent independent bodies bodies and and transparent. transparent. We've We've got got to get to get the the community community the broad the broad community community of of the United the United States States to to see see that that and and appreciate appreciate that. that. And And how how could could be be we'd we'd be sure be sure there there won't won't be prolonged be prolonged side side effects effects from from this this vaccine. vaccine. Well, Well, you you know, know, Martin, Martin, the one the one thing thing you've you've got got to admit to admit that that in in any any intervention, intervention, there there might might be be a side a side effect. effect. The The history history of of vaccine vaccine ology ology that that we we know know for for decades decades and and decades. decades. Is that Is that when when you you talk talk about about prolonged prolonged side side effects effects that's that's very very rare rare and and the side the side effects effects that that occurred occurred that that are beyond are beyond the immediate the immediate pain pain in in the the arm arm and and the fever the fever and and things things like like that. that. Generally Generally occur occur when when you look you look at at like like 95% 95% of the of time the time between between maybe maybe 30 30 and and 45 45 days, days, which which is is the the exact exact reason reason why why the the FDA FDA said said that that they they would would not not want want Tonto Tonto issue issue and and you you a a or or approve approve anyway anyway and and emergency emergency use use organization organization until until 60 60 days days after after half half of of the the people people in in a a trial trial Have Have gone gone from from their their last last dose. dose. So So already, already, the the FDA FDA has has baked baked into into the the process, process, a a safety safety mechanism mechanism to to make make sure sure that that you you have have historically historically overwhelming overwhelming chance chance that that you're you're not not gonna gonna have have a a very very late late effect. effect. Having Having said said that that also, also, you you don't don't just just forget forget about about it. Once it. Once the the trial trial is is over, over, you you have have one one or or two two years years of of the the trial trial follow follow up. up. In In addition addition to to post post trial trial follow follow up up So that's So that's something something that that is is very, very, very very high high priority priority is is the the immediate immediate intermediate intermediate and and long long term term safety safety of of these these vaccines. vaccines. It's It's not not something something that's that's being being disregarded. disregarded.
Christmas and New Year’s restrictions will be necessary due to holiday coronavirus wave, says Dr. Fauci
"Now Live is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr Anthony Fauci. Dr Fauci. Welcome back to this week. Today could be the busiest travel day in the country since the start of the pandemic, even though you and other public health leaders have made appeal after appeal for people to stay put. And distance as much as possible. When you watch these scenes, what do you think? And what else can you possibly say to them? Well, I mean, the travel that has been done has been done right now is people go back? We want to urge them. If they've been in situations outside of the family setting in which they really don't know the level of exposure to be really careful when you either return from the place that you went. Other people come back into your house. That you've really got to understand the importance of trying to prevent further spread and further surge that maybe when you go back to where you came from, if it's possible to quarantine yourself for a period of time, or even get tested to make sure That you're not bringing infection back to another place being another home or another family. Having said that we have to be careful now because they're almost certainly is going to be an uptick because of what has happened with the travel. We understand. The importance of family is getting together and it's just something that we have to deal with that we likely will have an increase in cases as we get into the colder weeks. Of the winter. And as we approach the Christmas season, please don't forget the standard public health measures that we talk about The reason I say that a moth and and almost plead with people is that we do know That it does work. Countries that have mitigated have turned around the surge. States that have mitigated have had a turnaround of the inflection of the curb. So it does work. And as we've just heard, help is on the way Vaccines a really right on the horizon. Will be having vaccines available for the higher priority people towards the middle and end of December and as we get into January and February, so everyone is totally empathetic. About the fatigue that everyone is feeling. But if we can hang in there, hang in there a bit longer and do the fundamental things wearing of mask uniformly avoiding crowds and congregate settings, keeping physical distance washing your hands. They seem simple in the enormity of the problem. That we're facing, But they do make a difference. Dr. Fauci pleaded before the beginning. Yeah, Doc Doctor Fauci. You have said that again and again and again. We saw all those people traveling. So you know what's coming. And with Christmas just around the corner, do you think will be under the same restrictions that you recommended? On Thanksgiving going into Christmas. You know, Martha, I can't see how we're not gonna have the same thing because when you have the kind of inflection that we have, it doesn't all of a sudden turn around like that. So clearly, in the next few weeks, we're gonna have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line, Martha, we may see a surge upon a surge. You know, we don't want to frighten people. But that's just the reality. We said that these things would happen. As we got into the cold weather, and as we began traveling, and they've happened, it's gonna happen again. So I cannot see all of a sudden a relax ation of the kinds of recommendations or restrictions because we're getting into colder weather and enough in even larger holiday season as people travel to come back and forth. For Christmas, so I don't see a relax ation of the kind of recommendations and restrictions that we've made. And Dr Factually. The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down New York's Covad restrictions on religious gatherings in the state. How concerned are you about legal challenges to pandemic restrictions going forward? Well, I mean, they happened, Martha. There's nothing I could do about it. I just keep saying that when people ask me for Opinions of specific things rather than make a comment on a specific things. I could just say it doesn't matter who you are where you are, when you have congregate settings, particularly indoors. When people are not wearing masks, that is a considerable risk for acquisition and spread of infection, no matter what the circumstances that is a risk. And you said there should be more regular testing available for asymptomatic people. How soon do you think before Americans could have inexpensive home tests? And why haven't they so far? Well, I hope it's sooner rather than later, Martha. I mean they obviously we've done better in testing than we did early on in the beginning. But you're talking about different kinds and different motivations and different objectives of testing. If you're trying to find out if a person is infected either for contact tracing or what have you then you want a highly sensitive test that might take a day or two to get a result back. When you're trying to find out what the extent of the community spread is that is driven very clearly, at least in part by asymptomatic spread, so we need to know the extent of the asymptomatic. The only way you know that is what you just asked for. And I would like to have seen it already. And I hope that we get it soon. Rapid, sensitive, specific home testing even one that you might not even need a prescription for so that people can have within their own power to know whether or not it is in his highly sensitive is the other, but it is very helpful, particularly if you do it over and over again. I hope we get that soon. And Dr Fauci in New York City Public school shut down again earlier this month. I know your default position is that you'd like to see the skull schools open. But how do you make that happen? And how would you advise the incoming Biden administration on getting a sort of unified response? Well, you know, Martha, that's a good question. We get asked that all the time. You know, we say it not being facetiously as a sound bite or anything, but you know, Closed the boss and keep the school's open is what we really say. Obviously, you don't have one size fits all. But as I said in the past, and as you accurately quoted me The default position should be to try his best this possible within reason to keep the Children in school to get them back to school. The best way to ensure the safety of the Children in school is to get the community level of spread low. So if you mitigate the things that you know, are causing spread In a very, very profound way in a robust way. If you bring that down, you will then indirectly and ultimately protect the Children in the school because the community level is determined how things go across the board. So my feeling would be the same thing. If you look at the data, the spread among Children and from Children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let's try to get the kids back. But let's try to mitigate the things that maintain and and just push the kind of community spread that we're trying to avoid. And those other things that you know well, the bars the restaurants where you have capacity seating indoors without masks. Those of the things that drive the community spread, not the schools and and Dr fracture. You talked about the vaccine and the availability of the vaccine. The government Can't force everyone to take the vaccine. So what about schools? Companies? Employers? Can they mandate of vaccine like in other vaccines? You know any individual group command eight vaccines in certain ways, Martha, It's not. I believe going to come centrally. I don't want to get ahead of the game there, but I doubt that. That would happen. For example, right now, myself. I mean, I'm at the NIH Clinical Center. I'm a physician. I see patients. I have to get the influenza vaccine or I'm not gonna be able to see patients, so individual units be they hospitals or other organizations. Can't do that. It's within their right to say. If you want to work with us, you're gonna have to get a vaccine. But that's not going to be, I believe, essentially mandated process and Dr Factory. There are concerns about the anti vaccination movement and infectious to see disease specialists in Boston, telling the Boston Globe the same energy that was placed into development and distribution of a Corona virus. Vaccine should have been placed in messaging and community engagement. Do you agree with that? Oh, absolutely. We have to engage the community. Martha B. Because we do have a degree of anti vax to begin with. But then there's skepticism about this vaccine. So we've got to be able to get out there get community people who the community trust to show two things. The process of the development of this vaccine has been one that has been scientifically sound safety has not been compromised. Scientific integrity has not been compromised and the process Of determining whether it works. Whether it's safe and effective, has been independent by independent bodies and transparent. We've got to get the community the broad community of the United States to see that and appreciate that. And how could be we'd be sure there won't be prolonged side effects from this vaccine. Well, you know, Martin, the one thing you've got to admit that in any intervention, there might be a side effect. The history of vaccine ology that we know for decades and decades. Is that when you talk about prolonged side effects that's very rare and the side effects that occurred that are beyond the immediate pain in the arm and the fever and things like that. Generally occur when you look at like 95% of the time between maybe 30 and 45 days, which is the exact reason why the FDA said that they would not want Tonto issue and you a or approve anyway and emergency use organization until 60 days after half of the people in a trial Have gone from their last dose. So already, the FDA has baked into the process, a safety mechanism to make sure that you have historically overwhelming chance that you're not gonna have a very late effect. Having said that also, you don't just forget about it. Once the trial is over, you have one or two years of the trial follow up. In addition to post trial follow up So that's something that is very, very high priority is the immediate intermediate and long term safety of these vaccines. It's not something that's being disregarded. Okay. Thanks so much for joining us this morning, Dr Fauci. It's always great to see you. We'll be right

Doctor on coronavirus testing after holiday travel
"As we officially entered the holiday season public health officials are warning of a new crisis in the pandemic the centers for disease control tens of thousands of new deaths in the weeks before christmas as people. Return home from ill-advised thanksgiving travel. Let's bring in lena when she's an er doctor and visiting professor at george washington university school of public health. Dr win. it's nice to have you back and thank you for making time for us on a holiday weekend of course. Happy to join you in. What's your prediction for. What's ahead after we saw so many people traveling and gathering over this holiday weekend. We have an impending calamity on our hand because we know that. Kobe is already everywhere and out of control. And now we're facing a surge upon a surge we already had surge in cases of coping nineteen and we also know that every time people come together over the holidays we even saw this over memorial day fourth of july labor dame that there was a surge after that and of course we have unprecedented in numbers of people travelling when we already have a very high baseline level of infection. And all of this. I think is just so incredibly tragic because we are not that far from the finish line here. We do have things that are on the horizon and. I really hope that everyone would just help us to hang in there for bit longer term because our hospitals are already getting overwhelmed. Where already to the point that we could see our healthcare systems collapsing. And we really need to hang in there and get through this very very challenging winter. The cdc is projecting the by december nineteenth the number of americans dead from covid nineteen will total more than three hundred twenty thousand. That's before christmas with this surge upon surge as you say do you think the death toll is about to jump dramatically. Yes i hate to say this. But this is what happens because death is a lagging indicator. Meaning that i. We're going to see an increased level of infections. Then we're going to increase hospitalizations even more than we currently have been. Icu's getting more overwhelmed and then after that death will spike and not only deaths from kobe. Nineteen but when hospitals become so full that physicians and nurses are unable to provide optimal care. Then we also have other patients. Patients come in with heart attacks strokes for cancer care for car accidents who are not able to get ideal care as well and we're going to see mortality increase from these other causes. Well now. i just hope that people will keep in mind. None of this at this point is inevitable. They are things that are in our power. I know ultimately this failure of our federal policy and the administration should have done a much better job but there are things that we as individuals can do and that includes continuing to wear masks continuing to avoid indoor gatherings and really doing our best through this challenging period. Again it's not full forever. But we have to get through this. Winter will in fact there's one projection from the university of washington that says we could save forty thousand lives over the next two months. If ninety five percent of people wore masks and yet we're still seeing cases for example this week governor mark gordon of wyoming tested positive for the coronavirus. After months of resisting a statewide mask mandate. What's not clicking for people here. I mean i think for us in public health. It's really challenging to see this when something that is a basic public. Health measure is being politicized end fact as a partisan symbol a cultural touch point for many people and we need to enlist credible messengers. In many cases prominent republican leaders business leaders pastors religious leaders We know in public health at the messenger is often even more important than the message and so the more people can help us out with. That message is absolutely central.

"Of infection fever and cough. You don't have that just beyond the lookout for it. Then well Dr Robert Winters. Md from here in local Los Angeles infectious disease. Doctor we thank you so much for being part of the show and giving your your your take and your research and experience in this and we really appreciate it. Yeah my pleasure Carl. I hope you get off the ship. The nineteenth comes around and stuff. Okay Take Care Karl. I have a question for you. Carl the have they give you any indication if you fly back to Los Angeles. Are you going to be sequestered and quarantined here? In the states. We thought so at first but the US embassy has issued a number of leases. They keep us updated on a daily basis. Us Embassy from Japan based in Tokyo and they referred us that no we will not be quantity dreamed of any back when we get back to the states. And once we leave the ship we are free individuals. And I I saw on. I was very curious about this. I saw a thing that your wife did. 'cause you're with your wife that she was saying that people were threatening threatening you and your wife not to come back. Is that right? Yeah well you Tony. You know better than anybody that social media can be a really big rabbit hole. No we've been you know we've been very out front there with both our blogs on hometown station dot com sharing a day today diary of what been going through in making you know keeping our sense of humor about it and then my wife's been doing yes lives facebook's rained and yes but you know it it gets down a percentage as we have one hundred thousand people will be watching it and they'll be ten yoyos making comments that are beyond stupid. Right and yeah. It's it's unfortunate. There's a good and bad to social media and Unfortunately have to see those once in a while but There's after the show you guys can go to Carl's Radio Station website hometown station DOT COM. You can find out. There's a lot more You know his right here. Yeah you can just go and check it out. Look at his Pages of of more details of what they went through but Carl. I know one thing about mental health where you know people stressed out your immune system goes down. How do you keep your mental state up? I mean being in your affirming trapped. Eight to eight feet with your wife. That's true but you know it's it's but after a while you can get cabin. Fever unintended And really kind of kind of get stressed out and in your immune system goes. How do you keep your mental health up? How do you keep that positively going? Yeah let's the ultimate test of our thirty one year we we we o one of the lucky ones we. We purchased a mini sweet when I gave this cruise as a gift for Christmas and her birthday present and we traveled with two of our closest friends. Who are in the cabin next to us. Which is rare for us to be able to get joining Kevin's but like the luck of the dice. Just happened when we first book this cruise on the first day of our crews and again we had fifteen of the sixteen days on the crews were wonderful cruise Cruise time we had. Princess opened the door between are too many sweets out on the balcony. So I can go back and forth into their room and vice versa. And that's what kept their marriage intact. I think you're lucky. Mean God. Some people are trapped. No windows able to and right right. There are people. I was on One of our excursions in Vietnam and I met a wonderful couple from Atlanta. They were in their eighties and they have been given the cruise as a gift by their grandson. They were in an inside cabin. No windows about a half the size of our Rome. Many sweet and the grandson and a friend were in there so this four in all my we met another. Yeah we met another American family. He's in the military and they brought their kids. They're in an inside cabin. So whenever we start feeling a little sir crazy we just think of them and and that any any version of US feeling sorry for ourselves out and we've also kept a sense of humor if you read my blog I've been we've been posting that every two days on hometime station DOT com. And we you know. We tried to show the reality of this and the serious and the seriousness of this but also put a humorous twist to it as we do throughout our lives. Thing that the lemonade on for sure and my my biggest thing is you said they bring you the food. I'm like well. How do you know there hasn't been from the time they cooked it the time you brought it to you that something didn't get infected airport? Yeah I would be afraid to even when you do but you have to eat so well. In coral they cancel everyone on the crew. Where masks so anything? Airborne is hopefully stop by the masks right and with health. And we've got so many Japanese health officials on board they're inspecting everything and clearing everything. It was only a few. We've been doing laundry in our bathtub and only been a few days ago when they health officials are now allowing the princess staff to do laundry as well for passenger yeah. I saw the video where your clothes hanging out on your balcony so I thought that was pretty Cruz where they cancelled the The rest of the cruisers for China for the rest of year blamed them and they've now cancelled flights in and out of China. So I mean I. I'm still worried Carl. I know they told you they're going to let you be Freeman. But I I bet then they just take another flight recently and they put them to an army barracks I thought in California is that right. Yes but those yes but those people who had not been quarantined for the fourteen days. I Sweden totally isolated. So so my feeling is that one. We hit that fourteen day mark on February nineteenth. We'll be less likely to be carrying the virus thing anyone else. I'd be afraid on that trip back an airplane. I make sure very careful who gets Sunday right. Like who are you well? We we know I was GonNa say we know you have a lot more to do but We really appreciate you being on the show and when you get back let us know because I'd love to to meet with you and and Make sure you're okay until your Wifi for us. I will I. Will I appreciate that. You Guys Take Care Karl Take Care of yourself thank you bye. That's crazy stuff. Tony in Japan. They said that. There's now I think it's at forty F- forty cases in Japan. That's what scares me. I mean it's Like he said he thinks it's way higher than that they're saying and and it's not that it scares me because like. I said we've heard the bird flu and Ebola so many things that have came before but these this this one is growing. Things are the speed of this speed because we had Linda on and and I had listened to her show and it was like at eight hundred people in a weak leader which you came on our show it was like an eight thousand right and now here. We are two weeks later. Words Sixty five thousand that we know of which the doctor and everybody else seems to be. Feeling that it's actually quite higher than the numbers that are giving out at least out of China so it's the rate that spreads and additionally Mortality Rate. Yeah all those other people have the flu. But they're not dying at two and a half percent right if you get this two and a half percent of them die. I like like he said two hundred eighteen people now on the ship are infected in twenty four hours. They're gonNA come out and they're going to say to thirty five or whatever. It is so at some point. Your number's up very well. Of course you know two percent and that's a di- but to at least get infection you know I mean that that's the concern so all right. Well we'll keep up on this and if we have any more breaking news about this we'll try to get some more information Out To you guys. If you have any questions please always leave. Comments Really Appreciate Carl. Goldman go to hometown station DOT COM and in Dr Robert Winters Infectious Disease Doctor for having both of those guys on taking their time out of the absolute and We appreciate you guys tuning in until next time. I'm twenty suite with Kipton Ron for Tributo takes case..
"winters" Discussed on Short Wave
"You're listening to shortwave from NPR. So for people. Who Don't know I totally know where is Mongolia? Mongolia is in Central Asia right between Russia and China. The landscape to me looks a little bit like a mixture between Montana and Mars if you can picture that delightful so this this time last year before you were short waves reporter. You don't like to think about that time. You went to Mongolia it's true. Why would one go to Mongolian winter all the travel guides discourage discourage it? I might discourage it but I purposely went there then because winter is at the heart of this whole story. So how cold are we talking here. It's super cold. uh-huh freeze your nose. Harris cold I actually had to tape. Hand warmers all over my microphone so it wouldn't freeze. Wow it is cold. Oh I found this piece of tape tape of me complaining about it minus eighteen degrees right now. This is really cool. I could tell me what you say. Cool coach it wasn't acting but some types of winters are so extreme matty that they actually have an official name so in Mongolian. It's called a zoo would that's when a winter tur- is so bad. It kills significant number of livestock in Mongolia or one out of four people make their living hurting. That has huge consequences. I mattie Safai and I'm Emily Kouanga today in the show. We had to Mongolia to learn about the brutal winters known as and how these natural disasters have changed enjoyed countries way of life okay so Mongolia is periodically affected by this extreme weather event. That happens in the winter called. What does this look like? Yeah so tender standard. I wanted to meet someone directly impacted. Divide it this man named Roy Eaton Gacek. He's a father of four super good bad Santa could do prates daughter's hair getting get somebody for school and everything. He was born a herder in eastern Mongolia and in January. Two Thousand Oilman as he tells it woke up at sunrise to check on his animals. Snow had fallen in the night about a foot. They were writing out a bad winter storm and he was really worried about is heard so how he cracked the door of his gear. Those are these circular felt cover tents that herders living and it was eerily quiet outside blindingly finding Lee white from all this snow. What did you see when he opens the door? Do not with this new household off. He's Carcass Saas new. Shut us a dozen of his sheep. Goats had died in the night. Those still alive yet about one hundred animals at the time. We're trying to find grassy but the land was literally locked in by snow. The hotel does ndas and it was really difficult to see this. He Sang. It was horrifying and it happened. Every few days boyens animals would succumb to starvation. Illness exposure and by the end of the winter he essentially lost his entire heard the type of food that came to his doorstep. It's called Saga which Mongolian means white death. While I think a loss at this level I imagine it's not purely financial absolutely I mean this. This isn't the same but there are dairy farmers in my family and you kind of like build relationship with your cows you literally like have them from birth to death so I have imagine it would be devastating like on multiple levels if you just slowly lose them over time right. They're not just economic assets and the loss of those animals is a social loss. It's spiritual loss experts. I spoke to in Mongolia. Described as a slow onset natural disaster different from a rapid rapid onset natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. So how many other herders were affected by the white death that year that year the two thousand six it claimed claimed about three and a half million livestock. Wow quite a bit law. It's eleven percent of the national hurt. And when you consider that at the time one out of every two households made their living hurting. It's significant begin. Animals represent wealth. So it would be as if your life savings were too slowly disintegrate. So what did the herders actually do in response Some rebuilt their heard those who could but others who lost everything they left gave up hurting fled the countryside seeking jobs in in urban areas uprooting. Their lives are good hurting Dad Johansen hair braided guy. He was one of those who left. Almost your short could the mother oh well many migrated. He's saying because it was impossible to make a living and it shows in the population and barter that's Mongolia's capital it has has tripled in the past thirty years exploded. Zid is one of the many migration drivers bringing people to the city. And I could see this when I lived there. I was reporting reporting and living in his apartment building and I looked off my balcony window. The hills were just covered in Gares. Those felt covered tents that herders live in. It was a picture. Sure of all of these people who had moved to the city and settled there and the city. Just couldn't contain all the new arrivals or does it still happening as it. On this scale that hits every corner of the country not that common prior to two thousand had happened about once a decade but was weird about two thousand is. It happened the next year and the next year and again again in two thousand ten so by the end of the decade there were forces and twenty one million livestock died in that period it totally overwhelmed Mongolian people that government tens of thousands of families packed up and left. That's that is horrifying of what is going on. Like what is causing US okay. So it's tempting to blame climate change and that is in fact the biggest culprit in this whole affair. Mongolia is indeed a warmer drier. Replace than it was eight years ago. But what I found is that zoot is actually caused by cocktail of other factors like over-grazing and deforestation. Basically quickly anything that destroys. The grassland is bad for animals. You need that grassland lending food it's a goat's buffet table and to not have it sets them up for good because this summer is a time when they fatten up. And if the grass is gone from drought or other things they're even more vulnerable when the winter is bad. Oh little bit of science here yes. The drought okay. Means less grassland and in Mongolia less grassland creates even more drought vicious cycle. Yeah because Mongolia. It's land locked all right. So the vast majority of precipitation rain snow. It comes from the land it comes from the grass. Water is transpired by plants into the atmosphere so so without grass Mongolia is even drier so given all of this is hurting still considered a good way to make a living in Mongolia. I think Mongolians are trying to figure that out. There's fewer herders but they're better prepared and trying to manage the Paschel and more sustainably local communities training herders to brace for a bad winter. Do things like make extra. Hey for their animals to eat. Purchase Livestock Insurance and pool there resources so the individual costs aren't so high all right so that that sounds great but are herders still kind of on edge. Are they like Shariq. Dowd anticipating the next. You know so I used to report in Rural Alaska inefficient community and herders. They kind of remind me of fishermen they know they're at the mercy of the weather but they're very tough and resourceful within their own lives and herders are doing the same. They're trying to make the most of what they have. They're kind of cultural heroes for practicing this way of life. That's become increasingly less common in the state. Broadcaster actually gives these awards to the best herders in in the nation. Please tell me you went to a best herder award ceremony absolutely went to a buzzer award ceremony. The championship herder. Who I met in the province was this man named near Goo Davidoff and I talked to him right after he got his award? Lord of host was also he was practical. Nature is unpredictable. It's harder there's less rain. Animals can't get fat but if we prepare extra hey. We can overcome such natural disasters. We don't have to be afraid this spring their animal's gave birth to hundreds of babies. I went back to visit during the birthing season in March. This pen is just full like a hundred lambs. Just these tiny little cotton balls near to make us feel better about this. Do you mind no. I just don't appreciate being manipulated. I wanted to show you the opposite right so not death life and what it signals for the next generation of herders. Who are continuing to do this? I'm picking up what you're putting down on. Thank you all right. I'm Lequan thank you for bringing us the story. Absolutely Mattie. This episode showed was produced by Rebecca Ramirez edited by yet lay and fact checked by emily.

"winters" Discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
"And that's what they wanna be able to stop. I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just telling you one of the first things. I saw. Boris Johnson already putting hikes unlike immigration requirements. Fireman's things like that so this idea of addressing immigration and is it based on xenophobia in what racism. I'm not going to deny that but there's also again. It's not unique to Britain those kinds of attitudes or you know racism but you know I guess there would people would be very hard pressed to say you should call everyone who voted for Brexit or anyone who is concerned about immigration are racist. And so that's the kind of line that Nigel farage tries vice to walk between having sensible immigration policy but also sometimes dog whistling so that or playing into very racist tropes. So so that's a again. That kind of tensions people are looking at talked about though here here in the US When we talk about the role that racism played in our own election in the sort of scapegoating of immigrants on Donald Trump for example? Very famously on the day that he announced his candidacy described Mexicans. As on you know rapists People have sort of tried to make sense of this by saying well you know it's it's white fright and people are afraid of their economic comic opportunities and they're just they're feeling anxious about their ability to provide a future for their children and racism is really a result of of feeling like your existing at a time with like economic precarity. And I'm curious how or to what extent you think that is a legitimate explanation at all on either in the United States or the UK on or how that changes given that you know the UK has substantial stanchart substantially more sort of safety net programs in place Than we do here in the United States and there isn't quite as acute a pressure on on people for example if you if you live in the UK you don't have to worry that you're going to go bankrupt and potentially lose your home if you get sick or not afford your insulin I'm just curious what your sense of that is and if your research has kind of unpacked the relationship between these two things that's a huge question. So I mean I can. I can take bits and pieces of it I remember being at a elections public opinion and parties conference friends after Brexit. They had done analysis of attitudes of people who voted for Brexit. Now can't talk to you about racist attitudes but what I can tell you. Is that when they did the analysis. What they found was that generally voters realized that they would We take my asking you. Are you willing to take long-term or short-term losses for control over immigration immigration and the people who supported Li. We're like yeah even though it might hurt us economically in the short term. We think long-term controlling our borders is actually going to be better for us I see comically and so we'll take the short term hip to leave in order to gain that long-term security so that was born out by the data. That's that's about as far as I can tell you that that is empirically. Based that I I've heard on that yet is tough because obviously you can't just be like hey are you racist and then the yes and then that's the ball so you're saying yoga immigration wasn't so much a topic in at least from what why heard from my participants. It was more just the idea of Brexit itself and the weight of it and trying to move past it as a country Also some people were voting just on Brexit like they thought that was the most pressing issue other people. Were like whatever's going to happen with Brexit is going to happen with Brexit but whatever government weakened again. That's what we have to live under so I'm voting for the labour. I am voting for Conservative based on that and some people were like I don't know part of it is brexit part of policy I'm kind of torn to because what if I vote for. I'd like the government I I like Labor on policy but I don't like their position on Brexit and I don't really like the Tories but I wanted to get brexit. So how do I vote. And that's the kind of thing that people were the wrestling. Yeah and and it seems like it was complicated by the fact that as as you said. There wasn't really a clear. Anti Brexit path in this election action. Is that right at all. Sword of those kind of muddle right. Yeah yeah the Liberal Democrats Nice Way to segue into the the other part another party. Thomas The Liberal Democrats were offering a very clear alternative to me. They're just going to quit the whole process. They were going to revoke article fifty. They'RE GONNA we're GonNa what do over stuff everything but was the problem that there's not enough of. It wasn't realistic enough. Is that when you know. Vote their third party over here kind of thing or no. Yeah Yeah I mean. The thing is liberal. Democrats were in coalition with the conservative. So they had deep suspicion of form. A lot of people on the left for being basically would calm yellow Tories because is yellow the color of the Liberal Democrats also. There's just not enough of them and they really only run. I guess they had some seats at one point in Scotland even they have anymore But they're they're pretty. They're kind of like these call a two and a half party system because you have labor and conservative but then Liberal Democrats do well where Labor doesn't or sometimes they do you well worth the conservatives. Do they're kind of this weird party. Basically that's a lot of game theory to expect an average voter to like figure out like okay we. You should definitely do this here. If from one interesting thing that we discovered from doing qualitative research is the extent to which voters if you say. Well how are you gonNA vote. You know coming up on Tuesday day. They'll say well. I'm in a safe conservative seat. Or let's say I'm an marginal Lipton Labor seat or I'm in a safe labor seat and what voters tend to do in this makes sense. It's we don't think about it in our modeling but think about other options in the context of where they can vote and so if they're a labour voter in a safe conservative seat and there's a competitive additive Liberal Democrat and they don't really see you know like well. My vote doesn't matter I'm a labor person I can't vote Liberal Democrat I'M GONNA put my vote matters this election. They were more likely to vote tactically and say. Hey I've always been labor but in this case I'm GonNa Vote Liberal Democrat to try to keep the conservative so we did see an increase in tactical voting. And that way. But I don't think I think any I'm getting away from your question. Yeah now well that's okay. I did want to go back to because You mentioned the education gap and that's certainly happening here. Obviously I think think I wonder how permanent these trends are but you know you think about it for the US election for example it feels like virtually every four years. It's like something like like fifty fifty you like. Obviously it's forty nine or whatever forty nine fifty one hundred but it feels like okay. It's basically the countries but like that doesn't really factor in that people kind kind of resort themselves. You know and I'm looking at the you know the polls right now For Two Thousand Sixteen one of the biggest ways that I think people have re sorted themselves over the years especially with trump. Is the education gap. So people you know. Higher Education voted overwhelmingly liberal roll. And there's a huge gap for people out college degrees that Voted Republican overwhelmingly. and I wonder if this is just so my question is ultimately going to be if you think this is a permanent change In either country or both countries. Or if it's just a particular result of the candidates and the In the elections we've had Because it's it used to be and you talk about you know the Labor Party it used to be. I think that's certainly true or sorry. I think that's Maybe we also true over here with With Democrats which is you know. It wasn't always all about higher. Education equals laughed lower. Education was right. Wasn't always that. Because is there's also the nexus of you know if if you're less educated you you maybe need that union job more and and you know. Democrats are pro union and Etcetera Etcetera. So there was maybe more of a cross section where I it didn't divide so neatly and I think Correct me if I'm wrong. Similar thing was probably going on with with Labor we're in the UK. And so. I wonder my question is. Do you think that's over to do you. Do you expect that trend to continue. That things will just be kind of resorted along eh lines or if you if the UK for example gets through this brexit thing is just kinda done as a done issue then then maybe things kind of go back to normal. What's what's your expectation there so I think that well in the US for a while it was the you had Education and if you had a bachelors degree you be left but if you had a masters degree probably had a business degree so you wrote a conservative but then if you had a phd you voted Democrat again like a higher degree. But now you're right. I mean there is an association and you do see differences especially between White College educated women and and White Non College educated women. There's quite a gap I mean. I'm African American. Women are voting Democrat women of color like communities of color. You've definitely vote support the Democratic Party. More it's generally white people who split on those educational lines more so than we do but I think if it was just education it wouldn't wouldn't be enough but what this really has to be understood with is the you know the de-emphasis this loss of a strong class identity Ten years ago even when I started with you know steadying. Tony Blair was the first election. A two thousand five and pilot and people were talking about Thatcher you know people in the focus. Group talked about growing up with Thatcher but people who are in their twenties. Now don't remember Thatcher. They don't remember the miners strike. They don't remember what she did or any of that sort of class identity that happened to their parents or their grandparents at this point and because of consumerism and because of service the rise of service sector jobs you just don't have I mean people would say you know like we heard this in Scotland before a Labor alienated cell from a lot of the Scottish voters. We're lifelong long labor. My grandfather voted labour. My Dad voted labour. You know I voted my labor my whole life but this summer voting. SNP So there's that class Decline in the working classes. That's given over to it. And then the other thing that I think is going to make it. A permanent or more. Permanent thing is one psychological psychological in to fund government funding for psychological. What what we found in our Q ESP study was that people have long-term partisan identification it? It takes it takes psychological work to break that identity and so we had a couple of people to Labor people in to conservative people. I think it was in two thousand ten who are thinking about voting running for the Liberal Democrats really like Nick Clegg or thinking about Kind of fed up with my party and fed up with a two party system. When I try something new maybe vote Nick?.

"I mean that would make sense and you certainly see later on x. Men the commuting growth hormone being taken by <hes> by human beings to temporarily gain mutant powers but in this case. There's no mention of of why it's being done. It's just like hey science. I like your <hes>. Your theory like that would make sense. I would want to have superhero powers if i was in a superhero world. This is what i do with comic. They tried to make them make more sense. They they needed they needed and peter thinks about this and there's this great <hes> full page of half of old peter with his coke bottle glasses. It's like when he was a teenager and half of current peter with the spiderweb panel structure spiraling out from him with actually the name of ditto worked into the spiderweb somewhat subtly going through his own experience with animal like traits and so the book is doing a lot of work to tie the type of mutant that visas mutants with the x factor into what spider-man's and up to yeah and it makes total sense it it. It provides motivation for the brand corporation that provides motivation for spiderman. There's so much motivation. Theory is there's also so much hobgoblins because once again after spider man and beast have said hello to each other hobgoblins shows up and starts blowing everything up and threatens to tell the audience what he he knows and so. There's a fight again. We're seeing it very similarly to how we saw in the newspaper strip in this case though our first issue ends with a cliffhanger or rather a chunk of ceiling hangar as the entire ceilings collapsing on everyone. It's a great oh that's where you see them calling on a reader's to look into the newspaper to see what happens next so extra motivation yes to readers get our own motivation and that takes us to issue number two caught hot in the act with believe the same creative team are doomed. Well spider-man's got something to say about that. That might be true. If you've got no handy handy dandy webbing go based go you make an aces cheerleaders by i really like spider man and beast together. They're both scienc- they're both very quickey lake. They're kind of natural partners in that regard. I'm surprised they haven't had more alliances over the years. They're both acrobatic. Lots of swinging on web shooter ropes or orbit on whatever branches are nearby that are convenient for beast to swing on. I think that they work really really well together and it's also really light like you know you're talking about bigotry. You're talking about like either either slavery or completely destroying an entire race. There's it's nice to have a little bit of levity there. Yeah i completely agree and especially well for beast because occasionally. It'll you will see him. Just get really dark. He's got this this facade of levity and underneath that there's a lot of guilt because he knows that the research he did to try to cure himself of being commuting way back in the day. Now is being used for whatever evil the rand corporation is up to yeah. It's a pretty it's it's pretty fun. I'm excited to see the rest of this book..

"It's it's just so much more depth that mitt let you read so much more into the book exactly and it's good that they do recap a little bit of this because the story in which i was in the brand corporation that was way back in the day that was an amazing adventures volume all youtube number eleven through seventeen and listeners. We actually had an episode about that with guest hosts l. collins and graham mcmillan way back in episode number sixty nine weird science so if you want to hear more about that and about being a total stoner back in the seventies you totally can so beast is like understandably upset with his his role in bringing the <hes> doing research for the brand corporation and is kind of moaning about for a little bit rogue sees them and wants to to know what's wrong and he allows her to touch him and she just like her jogging dislocated she just she flies backwards and yeah. It's pretty upsetting adding it isn't she understands that as there's this announcement about the brand corporation doing a conference on mutants why beast would be so invested so disturbed and they're really appreciate that all the x men characters. I see this happening or like hey that's kind of uncharacteristic <hes> what's going on and roads like dude. Let him do his own thing and that's basically the last we see of the x. Men right there air because from here on out it's just a spine and beast story so i do wanna tell you. I am so happy that i get to be here for this. Because beast was actually my favorite x men when i was a kid oh fair enough yeah and was that mostly from the comic or the enemy discernment animated series and i realized while i was reading this that it might have some into my day to day life. I like somebody who's really really smart and really really here. You're right now. There you go. I guess yeah hub does have some things in common with hank mccoy the roles delightful. They're vote delightful and they know a lot about a lot of stuff very true. Well there you have it therefore hub needs to experiment on himself at the brand corporation and become blue and he'd it'd be even closer. I think so i think he could learn to do with more science. Yes so beast heads off to the brand corporation to see how the research you did back in the day where he accidentally turned himself. Mm self blue might be applied to various purposes because brand was kind of not very cool one thing. I did want to note about east artwork. His appearance shifts as they're. We're talking about different stuff like i really something. I love about comics because i'm a big reader. I read a ton but in comics something that i've noticed is how you're able to shift. Somebody's appearance a little bit when they're talking talking about different things too like when he is angsty he gets to be a little bit more feral and when he is like lincoln around he could be a little bit more feline. It's really really cool and it's really special and the ad so much richness to the story for me. Yeah the beast i think is <hes> an especially good example of that just because he's got this human traits to those animalistic traits and the balance between them depending on on his body language and his facial expression and just a way he's <hes> the way he's positioned the lighting that he's end that can be anywhere along that spectrum and that serves. I think the story here really well as us as we see you know his cobbled complicated relationship with the furry blue mutant. He's become thanks to all this stuff passed. It's now coming back right up in his face and it's always was cool to see how this actually leads into other storylines too. I mean i think about how much work those tiny little comic strips had to do like they had to. They had to recap move action along and then end set things up for the next the next day with this you can fill so much of those gaps in with like character and i could see how you fall in love with these people want them to be part of your life forever. I want to hang out with hank..

"I think that he probably is not feeling the best and that's the thing yeah like the comic strip basically says oh you hated newton now. You're mutant apparently what mutants are in the newspaper strip. There's a lot more basic like spiderman is considered to be a mutant of the beast is of course as well and the beast in fact says well. I'm going to take him back to the x mansion and we're going to help him now that he's a mutant so so doesn't really jive with comic cannon but i guess if you're doing a simplified story for a newspaper audience. Maybe that works <hes> speaking of which who do you think the audience for this is. Do you think it is people who are reading the comic books and are they're trying to get them to purchase the newspapers or do you think that they're the people reading the newspapers trying to get them interested. In comics is hard to say because a lot of people are reading newspapers back in the nineties this was before they basically died but at the same time the mid nineties were when superhero comics mix were the biggest data ever been so i'd imagine they were hoping for some cross pollination some newspaper readers to pick up comic books. I'm coming readers to pick up newspapers not that that was necessarily in marble interest very directly but still there there is a call. I don't remember word is but it says hey when they're asking to for people to the clip in in the in the comic book itself. They're asking people to contact their newspapers so that they can make sure that they have spiderman available for the magical crossover event. Did you see that mr mr yeah so there's this moment that like hey call to action all of these fantastic readers that really really wanna know what happens next which spoiler there is not a lot of crossover subvert. The crossover event news zero is just parallel stories and actually with that. Let's go ahead and jump into the mini series starting with spiderman mutant agenda number one title part one written by stephen grant pencil diced tallinn's inked by santa rosa and colored by john callous so so stephen grant did all kinds of stuff he did avengers battle star galactica punisher war journal the life of pope john paul the second like really did a comic based on and i think that sounds absolutely wonderful i mean i guess i'd read it just to see what it was like. Well i mean it's interesting because at this this is not an air i know a ton about an in comic world but this is also the era that i was coming up when i was old enough to be reading comics at this time so the art is so much my childhood. It was so so comfortable. Absolutely i mean this was the era when i was like just buying every freaking. Ask thing that i could possibly find even if i didn't know this mini series existed because it just said spiderman and but yet it feels like coming home and speaking of coming home <hes> scott collins the artist he actually did some comics that we skipped in this podcast. He did a two parter of excalibur where the characters go to a condo and it's kind of uncomfortable in terms of its handling of race but he did thor blood oath way later and that was really good. I'm sorry it is like a very mid-nineties house..

"You gotta get that plot. Somehow yeah you know i who who the silver age a lot but it's got its charms and it does and it's also really nice to see how things things have evolved from. There like one of the things i noticed about the comic strip itself was it did have a silver age feel a little bit more because it was so head to be so plot driven. Am i totally off base or is that no i well. I think part of it. I think there's that and there's also just that it's written by stan. Lee who is the writer that basically defined at least on the mobile side silver age and it's got that feel yeah absolutely absolutely and the hero joss devry at that oh yeah well hero shots are timeless as long as there is breakfast cereal. There will be hero jaws so the hobgoblins attacks the conference out of nowhere. We don't need explanations. He just shows up and starts pumpkin bombing the shit out of everything. That's how he is though i mean have you met hoglund oakland recently not recently no. I think they're dangerous. Protected goblins list but so hobgoblins if people aren't familiar most people familiar with the green green goblin he was in the sam spiderman movies played by that awesome actor whose name i can't remember right now so the hob goblin is like if you took the green goblin then added more halloween more halloween i feel like years appointee or knows and like is a little bit more like totally is and spoiler oiler for when we talk about the animated series episode that covered this or episodes i should say mark hamill voices him and he basically just sounds like the joker which is super reasonable at my opinion. I completely -pletely agree. I listen to mark hamill. Do basically whatever this is actually the third green goblin. It doesn't really come up in the newspaper strip but for the sake of completion this is jason mason dale mcintosh who used to be a villain named jack lantern who is even halloween easier and it so spiderman changes into costume in this chaos and hopes beasts save civilians but then how steals the d._n._a. notes which apparently contain the entirety of the research about dna that they're doing right now for a brand corporation and he just get adults. I just love it the referred to as d._n._a. Notes i mean what else would you call them. You know just be descriptive. Wipe wipe all those fancy acronyms on there. Why is that science speeches. Be down to earth scientists. You could just sit down and have a beer with i think that is actually we lead and as a beer and like some general anti mutant sentiments exactly beer and bigotry to taste the system so the hobgoblins does manage to get away because spider n._b._a. Star distracted like preventing people from getting crushed by rubble but not before spiderman puts spider tracer on the hobgoblins glider. It's sort of like i mean i do. Most people are familiar with green goblin or hobgoblins at least when the spiderman movies but it's kind of like he's writing on this sir bent dumpster. Lid is somehow looks very evil. I don't know how else you would describe it. I always think of it is kind of like a vaguely spacey sort of device like if you took something from <hes> the the star trek universe but like the first star trek and you put it into comic book. It's kind of got that feel yeah. It's charming looks really fun to ride around on is jealous of the green goblin goblin. Is that your favorite mode of transport in superhero world. Oh oh man. I'm a sucker for jet packs. I gotta say and it always bothers me that they're not used in more characters. Day-to-day lives like as you're going through new york city seen like jetpack technology exists. Why aren't they communist. Those damn scooters that are everywhere these days gosh that is a million jillion dollar idea mouth. Oh man probably <hes> the million jillion dollars would have to go to law suits for injury yeah so because this is the marvel universe and specifically because it's a comic strip where we need to go deeply into motivation spiderman and beast chase after after hobgoblins everyone immediately assumes that therefore they're all in cahoots and i really enjoy the dialogue <hes> from the bystanders.

"Mad. I didn't know that at the time because that would have been the coolest thing when i was a kid. One of my favorite things about people who are really into comics is how much you love to collect things. It's a really it's like you get to like have a little treasure treasure. Exactly that would have been a treasure that i had built myself with scissors and tape so only built in the most rudimentary of senses but still but i mean i honestly think that some that genius behind the business is that you have all of these things that people want to have for themselves and like create this whole treasure trove. Everyone who collects comics is actually a dragon dragon. Basically it's our horrid. It is our four color horrid on that note. Let's talk about spiderman mutant agenda the the newspaper strip version but first. Let's talk a little about our heroes hank mccoy. The beast was one of the original five silvery x. men. He must have gotten bored while the book was was in reprints in the early seventies though because he with the team and he got a job as a scientist for the brand corporation while he was there he discovered quote the hormonal extract. The chemical 'cause is of mutation which he promptly drank in order to disguise himself for emission turning furry and gray the blue would come later unfortunately forgot to ask siri to set a timer for an hour so he got stuck in that form spent the next few weeks attempting and failing to science himself back to his previous form before skipping town as for peter parker spider man. I mean okay. Let's be real. Everybody knows his deal. He was bitten by a radioactive spider and now does everything spider can accept that his webs come out of wrist launchers instead instead of his bud. That's probably for the best anyway this was written by. Hey stan lee and penciled by larry lieber as i recall was stan. Lee's brother yes. He was so in the first trip. Spiderman actually tells the reader that you should clip them out and spiderman. I totally did peter parker. Please be proud of me. Eh but i kinda wanna go through the first handful of strips the first week which isn't actually as much as it sounds because they're very short aside from spider-man's instructions just to give everyone wanna feel for how this is constructed. Do you want to be m._j. Or peter i'll be m._j. I think all right so stripped number two do the hop goblet broke out of jail. Yes i read it. It was you who captured him. What if he wants. Revenge strip number number three. I'm scared peter hobgoblins swore revenge and now he's free no problem. He's after spidey peter parker but hey look at this question-mark strip number four look the brand corporation sponsored a conference on mutations.

"But you have to very different takes on the whole thing yeah so the thing that i was most excited about was kind of figuring out how it works in two different mediums like the comic book is this beautiful long form with all this paneling and really pretty colors and all sorts of stuff and then the comic strip itself itself has three panels really really traditional super reminded me of what i used to think comics where before i actually read them exactly yeah and you know very formulaic af where the first panel reminds you what happened last time the middle one something occurs and the third panel sets up what happens next time. It's sort of comforting like i grew up reading the newspaper comics myself that was like part of my daily routine and so for me. This was kind of like being a kid again. Yeah it was for me. I read a lot of comics actually right after college like the newspaper funny papers for me. It was more interesting as a way to think about how people have to tell stories. You have to tell the story story in the super truncated way your motivations become really really short and to the point you're still able to have the basic framework and the basic tension there so it was really really fascinating to see how people worked honestly. That's what i saw on this and the strip exactly and we'll get to that so the way we're going to do this is were i gonna go through the comic strip version and then basically go back through the story in the comic book version talk about some of those differences and the parts that are just even more bonkers by comparison like this is not as weird the some of the stories. We've covered on this show. There's some bizarre stuff in here. What would you say is one of your favorite bizarre things one of my favorite things from this story or logger conversation from the story from this story. I think i probably most appreciated. There's susu later on. We'll talk about this where the hob goblin has snuck into a scientific base he notices that spider man and beast there with him so he just knocks out a guard and then the super robotic formal language just says spiderman and beast have been detected find and destroy and like everyone just goes with it like the way that motivations nations are just so simple and easily manipulated in this our glorious. That's beautiful and you also see so much of that in the comic strip as well <hes> did you comic book are coming straight. I was talking to you about the comic strip totally right now. I mean you have to have that because otherwise there's there's there's no motivation in that. It's so difficult set craig character in depth in those three panels exactly now. This wasn't the only adaptation to going to be covering of spiderman newton agenda. This was adapted did a third time in the mid ninety spiderman cartoon. The animated series two came out around the same time as x men animated series. It was a two parter and because we want this the episode to be shorter than a feature length film rolling to talk about that a little bit but we will get to it at the end. We had a lot of people on twitter who are excited about that totally gonna mention it and dot parts pretty great as well well as far as other backgrounds so when i was a kid i heard about this trip and i heard about this crossover rather because i read all the newspaper funnies janis and religiously clipped out every single one is still have them jay actually posh them onto an ikea's storage box that we moved a bunch of our stuff in the last time we moved so it still exists in that form what i found out though is that there was a spiderman newton agenda number zero that had places you could paste in the individual strips and i am so mad..

It is a medium. I'm not super familiar with. I'm trying to figure them out. When i read and i maybe a little bit too generous with <hes> like allowing plot points most recently.

Our is our sets of is because it has a lot of talking points that are used by Intel HS and red pill people in, but it also tries to put like a scholarly shine on it, which is I guess that's a good summary of Quillet in my opinion, trying to put a scholarly shine on some of these more awful talking points around the internet, and so I had her onto discuss. The data. They used in. How it does or doesn't actually support what they're saying? Okay. So let's hop on over to my interview with Christy winters. It's Dr Christy winters back on the show. Welcome back. Good to speak to you. Again. How you doing? Oh my goodness. It's it's it's it's been quite a week. And it's only Monday. Fine. Happy to be back on and talking with you about something that's very nerdy. Which is kind of my that's my area of YouTube being in social media. So. Both nerdy. And not nerdy. I get why any any non nerdy thing can be nerdy. If you get enough data about it. Right. That is true. You can make anything sexy or thirty. I guess here. Lots of things. Stats are involved. That's all. All right. Well, yeah. There was a Quillet article, you know, the esteemed publication Quillet dot com had an article this was in early March. And it it made right away. My alarm bells kinda went off because the title is attraction inequality in the dating economy and right away. It it introduces and talks about the this sort of eighty twenty concept that I've seen referenced by in cells, and it's in I think it's in the red pill documentary thing where it's like, oh turns out men are the real victims here, and that kind of thing now, I don't know though, it references some studies. So I thought you know, it'd be great to talk to you. Somebody who social scientists whose way more literate in data studies on on the seven we'd see kind of separate fact from fiction or at least day. Data from extrapolation inappropriately of the data. Maybe that kind of think, Ed. Very well said, yeah, I think that's a good. That's a good way of putting it. Just to recap. What you said there is this Quillet article that came out, and it has the idea of attraction inequality, the dating in Konami, the dating economy, and the article it self gonna goes through as you were saying this narrative where they talk about they set up the thing about the dating. And then they start to point to some studies and studies that look at at dating it would seem to be. But when I started unpacking and looking deeper into the studies, they use a realize that the story was one way more complicated and not even more complicated than they. They've just misinterpreted the data some important ways to create a narrative that you as you mentioned fulfils this men are the victims in some tally. I think also I would say probably intellectual dark web. There has there's a sort of tinge of that roaming around in that area as well. Now, it sounds when you when you read the article, it sounds really impressive. There's this person that they're citing. And he used something called the Ginnie coefficient which is something that has been used the problem with that article though. So anyway, let me actually let me get to their conclusion. And then we'll go back and look at the studies to see whether or not the study's actually say what they say. Disclaimers. Of course, we are going to be speaking broadly about hetero men and women had Roe relationships. That's going to be probably the focus because that's what the data available is for this particular discussion..

"These winters and drive through them unless we got the day off or got to work from home. I got on the Kennedy expressway at about three fifteen this morning. And there's the adage in Chicago that you drive, you know, the side streets are a little messy same in the suburbs. Two. But usually once you get to the expressways, tollways are usually in pretty good shape. I don't know if it was the timing of the storm just how fast the snow was coming down about three four or five AM or the wind or what it was. But I got on the Kennedy, and there was no covered. It was snow and ice covered already. That's a bad sign at three thirty in the morning. Once you feel more cars on the there's no there's only so much the plows can do. So we got someone coming on from dot. They're going to talk to us about what happened this morning what they're doing to try to fix the issue. It was a little bit better later on this morning when I drove from the U jam over here to WGN. But I think they're doing all that can I mean, they got as many plows out there is they can't just couldn't get everything out of the way. So three one to nine hundred seventy two hundred join that conversation also with this cold temperature. I gotta talk to Tommy skill. And he's going to be joining us in a little bit to chat through kind of a historic perspective of this cold snap. I. The lowest recorded temperature tunnel. Fill me in is minus twenty seven Chicago. I know we're going to flirt with that. But the lowest high-temperature that we've ever had in Chicago is eleven below zero. If I'm reminded Tawil, correct me if I'm wrong, I think we're going to break that that's the all time Chicago record. That's not the January thirtieth record. That's that's the all-time Chicago record for the lowest high temperature looks like we're going to beat it. So essentially Wednesday is gonna be the coolest day in the history of Chicago. There's also some old records I saw an old Sun-Times cover going back to I think Christmas Eve nineteen Eighty-three or they're talking about wind chills of eighty two degrees below zero. And I thought well that's going to be much cooler, obviously than what we're going to have a fifty which sounds terrible enough. But then I read the little reading they actually changed how they monitor the wind chill. How they did those readings. So they say that minus eighty two is actually now what equipment to minus fifty five would be. So is it gonna be the coolest it's ever been in Chicago, the coldest or going to find out from Tom skilling? He'll beyond. In just a little bit later on also going to be chatting on this thirty third anniversary and anniversaries always the wrong way to say the challenger explosion. And so I think it's one of those events that you remember where you were the moment you saw it. If you happen to be watching TV that day. I don't remember. I was one and a half years old. But my mother remembers and I play a part in that story. She remembers what we were doing the moment that the challenger blew up on this day back in nineteen Ninety-six. We're gonna have a clip from Ronald Reagan, the president in one of his best moments are certainly the most poignant speeches he ever gave from the Oval Office that day, but we're gonna talk to folks from NASA about that. But LS how was your weekend? You feeling good feeling great? You're ready to tackle this cold. Blustery week. I'm not, but I did relax. Good amount over the weekend. Well, you did a lot you relaxed, and I did some relaxing too. But I think there's one person who out relaxed all of us this weekend. Or maybe she just was resigned to her fate. This story breaking out of New York. The fire department of New York responding to a complex at forty eight east sixty fifth street on the upper east side. Apparently, there was a woman stuck in a Manhattan elevator for the entire weekend. She was a cleaning lady at a private house. She was in an elevator Friday afternoon. The elevator broke down. There was no alarm button to to alert local authorities and until someone came back to the house. The family must have been outta town over the weekend. They didn't come back 'til Monday. It she spent the entire weekend in there. So, you know, I know right. So if you think that you're having a bad morning, or you know, it's a tough Monday morning for you and into a tough afternoon. At least you didn't spend on weekend in elevator fasting. Yeah. Exactly. You sit on the couch. Like, I did you know what I did this week? And I sat and started game of thrones. And I got about two seasons through and I just sat there and Portillo's for some reason gave me a chocolate cake on Friday. They delivered it to the WCW. I brought the chocolate cake on when literally we ate half of it and recant I the whole weekend watching game of thrones. It was wonderful. We did nothing. That's a special accomplishment. Half of that case could have done more. I to limit myself, but this Saturday. Tire weekend. She's probably got to go back to work. They probably let her out of the elevator. And she's got to do more cleaning. This is how they make their living. Yeah. If you were wealthy enough to have an elevator in your private residence. You need to have some capability to let the cleaning lady alert authorities. If she gets stuck in it that should be what happened there. Where was the maintenance Kerr they should have a maintenance crew by if you're that wealthy you need to have a button in there, an emergency button installed or give her some sort of phone that you can always reach anyways. We're gonna take a quick break. We'll do that a little bit later on. But it, oh, no, it's it's it's a commute related. You can do it. Now. Let's do the click really quickly. Now. First of all Friday. We had they were we were talking about what? Well, what are you going to do? What was the news click on Friday? It was should the Eleanor attorney general increase Jason Van Dyke seven year sentence and a yes got thirty seven percent compared to be no which got sixty three percents about two to one not guess. Right. And what about today today's a fun one kind of fun? I guess. How was your commute today? A it was the worst of all time be it was awful. But not the worst c- was pretty bad. But we're used to it and D complaining this is Chicago, which takes the lead currently. Yeah. Okay. So go to wgnradiOcom for that quick commercial break. Then Tom skilling here on seven twenty WGN..

"Christy winters. Welcome back to the show. It's so good to be on. Thank you for the invite. It's always so nice to talk with you. Absolutely. Is my pleasure. I'm so glad you're here. Thanks for taking the time. This is this is a tough one. I know that we've kind of referenced Louis CK in the past. And when this latest recording came out, it's just this is one of those topics that I just I can't help but think about and try to work my way through and I was thinking all do some monologue ING about and I thought what's it'd be better than that as having Christiaan some smart person to sound off with and maybe kinda check back and forth and see see how we feel. So I'm really glad you're here. I put myself through the through the pain of listening, the whole set, the actually I didn't I didn't even know. I was going to do that. I just kind of at the last second. I was like, you know, I guess I'll see what else is there. Maybe if there's there's anything that would explain or justify kind. The leaked bits. But just to reset slightly. I guess there was a Louis C K kind of leaked audio recording of a set. He's working on now and to one one a half or two minutes leak that was really incredibly boring. Offensive anti trans stuff like circa twenty ten jokes about identifying whatever. N? It's so tired and unfunny like is not even a creative right wing offensive that stick, you know, it's it's really not what I would ever have expected from Louis before. But you know, now, obviously he's in a different different situation. But so that kind of leaked and it was he's bashing. He can listen recording. If you want, obviously, if people don't want to really shouldn't. But he's kind of bashing young people like oh young people testifying congre. Why aren't they just deer drinking jello shots and having sex with each other and do whatever, you know, why they identifying whatever that kind of like get off my lawn humor. And do you. Do you heard that clip, right? Just the short one. I remember seeing people pass around the script of it and talking about whether the script was a good representation of the audio. What that's right. If I it was a script the script was one hundred percent what it was in the clip..

"Leading ministries and businesses and west. I have a funny, Tom winner story for him. I love it. I was on a plane coming back from Denver on Sunday, who on the plane with me since the Tom winter storm going, Tom winters. Right. And you're the why didn't say hi, Tom winters. Why? Because I have so many leads, and so many people that want me to work with him that I not feeling the need to network all the time. And I know that he's in the same category and he looked like he was engaged in a conversation and was having peace, and I didn't want to interrupt him when I was first. Starting DJ connection. If I would've seen Tom winters, I would have been like, here's my card. I went to work with you. I mean, every single person could have been a process they didn't. I didn't have enough leads, right, but now I'm gonna time my life where I have more leads and I can deal with and it's kind of more of like, what's the best fit? Can you talk to me about talk to us about why winters and king has been so consistent with your advertising and really the role Tom winters plays for you guys kind of your rainmaker. I mean, because he brings in some pretty deals. I'm not sure he's doing Denver, but I'm sure he was bringing yet another big. No, I think has done there. John veer. But yeah, I mean, it's Tom every organization needs that personality. That is an outgoing. Person that enjoys going out there and making those relationships. And that's Tom winters for us. I mean, he he enjoys in some even the daisy. Don't enjoy. You get up and put a smile on your face anyway, but he's the one that goes out there and he's having lunch is he's playing golf, he's he's doing good work at the same time, but he's constantly looking for opportunities to make new connections even when at times we wonder, well, that's great, Tom, but who's gonna actually do this work? You know those times on you're busy and you have to reject that notion of, we don't need any more work right now because you can always grow and like doctors e said earlier, you find yourself with laws. We have nothing to do, but you still have payroll going out and rent going out and expenses going out. And those laws come back to bite you very quickly. Can you share with me as an attorney? Why it's so important for you to have an abundance of leads because you work with some of the top brands? Yes. But if you did. Didn't have an abundance of leads. What kind of companies would you probably have to work with by default when you don't have enough leads to.
