Filmmaker Finds An Unlikely Underwater Friend In 'My Octopus Teacher'

"Of the most heartwarming films of 2020 was about the relationship between our next guest filmmaker Craig Foster and an octopus he befriended while diving off the Western Cape of South Africa. Foster had burned out from years of working on arduous nature films and decided he needed a reset. He vowed that he would dive without a wet suit her oxygen tank every day for a year into the chilly waters of his youth and explore the kelp forest, an ecosystem teaming with life. It was there that he gained the trust of an octopus who allowed him into its world where Foster discovered things about its life and his own. Foster's film called My Octopus Teacher, has been nominated for an Oscar and is available on Netflix.

"Well, this South African variant of Cove, it might be able to break through the Fizer vaccine. That's, according to a new study from Tel Aviv University. Researchers examined 400 people who tested positive for covert 19 after getting vaccinated in Israel. Eight of them tested positive for the South African variant despite getting both doses of the fires of vaccine Study has yet to be peer reviewed, but it raises concern that the variance might make the vaccines we have weaker at fighting off the disease. Joining us to discuss is Timothy Brewer, professor of epidemiology and medicine at U C L. A welcome Thank you very much for having me. Well, you've read this study. What does it say about the effectiveness of this Fizer vaccine against the variants and specifically the South African variant? So it actually doesn't tell you anything about effectiveness, because we we don't have an eight denominators at all. So what this study tells us Is that people can have documented infection having been vaccinated and that the risk of documented infection maybe higher if you've been infected with the South Africa variant But it doesn't tell us anything at all about how well these vaccines prevent against serious disease, hospitalization or death. And these people who got infected. They were fully vaccinated, right? The two weeks after the second shot knows, no, that's actually incorrect, so the way they define fully effective in this study is at least seven days after the second dose. So, for all we know, these people could have been seven days after their second dose or eight days, Actor, not the two week period that we use here in the United States. I see and does doesn't indicate why the South African variant um, was able to break through in these eight people and not be aware Ian's Yeah, So we we know from a laboratory studies that both the South Africa variant and the Brazil variant have changes in the virus that make it harder for the antibodies to neutralize them. But the level of protection you get, at least in the laboratory is still high enough that it should prevent serious disease or or death. But that's something we've actually known now for several months. And so, what is your takeaway meeting this, um Should we be worried? So, so we're always always concerned, but the big takeaway messages first off do get vaccinated. So at least the data we have so far says these vaccines work very well against serious disease. Hospitalization and death and in Israel as well. The United States, the predominant variant is now the B 117, or what's called the UK variant, and the vaccine seemed to be fully effective against those and the second. Very important. Take home message is Vaccines don't necessarily prevent you from getting infected even if they prevent you from getting sick. So even if you've been vaccinated,.

The History of Muslim-Controlled Spain

"In the early eighth century the iberian peninsula was populated by the visigoths who are dramatic people who entered and populated the peninsula after the collapse of the roman empire. During the reign of the caliph will lead the first general. Tariq iban ziad lead moore's forces across the mediterranean and landed in gibraltar on april thirtieth in the year seven eleven. This began a seven year campaign. Where the moore's brought most of the iberian peninsula under islamic control the term moore should probably be explained as i've used it here. In several previous episodes there really are no people called. Moore's the term more was used by europeans to describe muslim inhabitants. From north africa included people of different ethnicities including berbers and arabs. The term isn't too dissimilar from the term francs which was used by muslims in the middle east to describe all europeans. The term comes from the roman province of mauritania which is where modern day morocco is located. The current country of that name is not located exactly where the ancient province of mauritania is located. The invasion began a period where muslim rulers controlled at least part of the iberian peninsula for almost eight hundred years the moore's never completely conquered the peninsula however even at its greatest extent just eight years. After the invasion there was still a part of the peninsula that remained under christian control in the far north the kingdom of asturias remained independent and it was never conquered that being said one of the reasons why they had such an easy time is because they gave very generous terms to the people who they did. Conquer one example of this is theodomir the visigoths chief of america. He agreed to terms where he could still continue to be the leader of his people and practice christianity. All they had to do was pay an annual tribute. The entire region of iberian muslim rule was known in arabic as al

CDC director warns of a coming spike in Covid-19 case counts

"Biden and cdc director rochelle will inskeep. Were both pleading with americans yesterday not to let their guard down against covert while the vaccines are taking place. Director will linski used the phrase impending doom about where she sees the covert case numbers trending. They're on the rise. Even though vaccinations are happening so of course because she used the phrase impending doom. That's what the media ran with for all of their headlines even though that's like that's not the point the real gist of her statement that we're close to the end but restrictions are probably easing up too quickly and we're letting our guard down. We sort of feel like it's the end so or not seeing it through. So there's this increase. In cases she got emotional saying it. Because it's actually personal for her. She was treating covert patients before she became. Cdc director so she was drawing on her time treating patients who ended up just dying alone because they had cove and their family couldn't be with them another layer to this. Is that the more. The virus spreads the more chances it has to replicate environs are terrible at replicating themselves so they make mistakes in their dna. which is what leads to the variants. So essentially the more time it has to spread the more time it replicates in the ultimate fear is that it replicates to a point where vaccines don't protect us now. I don't know. I'm not ready to go that far just yet because psychologically people are just gonna get burnt out of hearing. We're all gonna die from some new cova development every single week like our brains can only handle and be nervous and anxious about so many things that eventually. It's just gonna burn out. Also vaccines are robust. They're strong and they protect so much better than a normal immune response they are one of those super vaccines so far and they have protected us against every variant to this point that said we have been close to that escape variant. I think is what they call it where it evades Debates are vaccines. We got close to that with a south africa variant. Because it's not really clear how well that's working with astrazeneca and now the one in brazil is apparently pretty troubling. So we're sort of playing with fire here and the longer we take people vaccines the more dangerous it becomes for all of us and that means worldwide. Not just us. We have to be concerned about places like brazil. We don't have enough vaccines which has got let the virus persist and as we've really seen this year we truly are all in this

"What practical strategies can africa implements thrive in the post pandemic world and all the any silver linings for the continent. Yes so. I think what this pandemic is done exposed. That the the old ways of doing things Were in many cases not fit for purpose. We've had to kind of come up with more creative more innovative and more dynamic approaches to doing things. I think one of the one of the concepts. That that i came up with along with bronwyn williams was The concept of this five economy. Which i think africa needs to look at to to to come out not only surviving but also to be successful Not in a very very brief Summary we've identified kind of five g economic as the blue economy which deals with oceans tourism maritime issues Which we believe is underexploited. Africa has about forty thousand kilometers of coast. Coastline eight island coastal states. And this is something that i think can be really catalyzed. Can help in terms of employment can help in terms of energy security And it's untapped so number. One is the blue economy. The next quite logically is the green economy. Where you know this is something that can address africa's issues around food security around renewable energy Again significant potential Underdeveloped agricultural potential. has a huge potential employment impact as well and i think focusing on agriculture reprocessing using technology and integrating this into into the african continental free-trade agreement can can lead to significant Positive developments in africa. I think the the next one is the is the pupil economy which not many people actually know about. This is the cultural economy. Which globally represents two trillion dollars economy If we look at the examples of some of the other countries in the world In japan and south korea which which exports k pop as a a a a cultural product. I think there's significant potential here. And we're already seeing through the likes of trevor noah after the likes of bernard boy through the jerusalem challenge through various kind of avenues that There is an appetite for african content african cultural content.
