"Kurt Larson. I think for me. I still have a dog so I'm still exposed to a lot. In your still going outside yes. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah I think. The I think that is the big big side of it is we're still going into the environment you're still eating food. You're still getting groceries from various places you are if you have pets, maybe those pets are going outside bringing things in perhaps you have children and they're in a small group may be not as large as they were So the hygiene hypothesis I think really is more. So like absolute cleanliness and This real avoidance of germs that that we've had as a society over years with the idea that people in in rural areas are you know have have fewer allergies people who are who are exposed to cow pastures for instance, have fewer allergies than? With animals rain. Yet. But there is something to be said about washing your hands way more which. We've learned really how often and how carefully all wash your hands before which is not great news. If you're worried about disease but maybe was good news if you're worried about this. I think you're right. Kurt. Though I think it will be a good test I think. You absolutely could see potential of higher allergies and and also people. Google getting a lot more coal I think you could see people who haven't had as Mexican exposure and have in systems that are more likely. They all think those colds get get a little tougher to deal with the older you get I think. There's something about that that that young immune system that can take on all these colds always have one lightest snot coming out of one side of the nose of the other and still be going about every activity as if nothing. was happening I I i. think this is a blip and I don't think that it is as going to be as dramatic in terms of the hygiene hypothesis and and that affect of. Leading to greater problems with immune systems allergies, I think it'll just be a you haven't been to that corona virus before or haven't been exposed to the flu before and so. It'll be your immune system, not knowing how to fight some things off, and so I think that is just more likely which is just. Normal functioning of the immune system but..
Fauci 'cautiously optimistic' coronavirus vaccine could prove effective by 'late fall or early winter'
"US health leaders were back in the hot seat on Capitol Hill testifying before a House panel about the pandemic questions focused on getting schools open again and the possibility of a vaccine on the. Horizon. Director. Of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr Anthony Fauci. was asked about that vaccine timeline. We hope that as we get into the late fall and early winter we will have. In fact, a vaccine that we can say would be safe and effective one can never guarantee the safety effectiveness unless you do the trial but we are cautiously optimistic that this will be successful.

"Get out at the end knock knock knock. So. Frogs don't have teeth a lot of the times they don't kill things before they eat it. So usually the digestive enzymes of the ones that kill the prey so they can swallow stuff whole, and so these beetles have to not only scoot through quick enough to not get eaten up by digestive enzymes, but they also have to be able to get out the last leg of the journey. As. As you might say So this finger muscle on the frog is the pressure keeps it closed. So the tiny needles actually have to encourage the frog to open it. So they stimulate the frogs gut to promote. This. Frog sees and four other frog species that they tested this on in a lab. So, how do they stimulate it to promote digestion? mean is it like Grupo Quirk? Digest poke poke poke or is it chemical stimulation? Like what do I do not believe they know yet or is the Earth nukes chopped up the beetle and throw it into their body. It would take them. Over twenty four hours to Poop it out. But if If they were alive when they were swallowed, it would take about I think it's about four hours would take wayne less so so the Beagle itself being present at the back door yet. At the back exit. would. May Be enough for the fog to be like oh Not My usual time. But I guess I've got another one. Yeah. There we go. Let me just take care of some more business I mean I would not seem logical that it's just It seems like it's ready again. Yeah. That's what it is. It's not like the I have to be no, they're they're going to poop for sure that's that's part of the deal but how yet? How exactly are they doing it? It. Encouraging this to happen. Oh, it's about six hours. Happens about six hours after the ring. So a quarter of the time the time. Amazing. And every single one that was excreted within those six hours alive and active. So. Okay. So many questions in so many thoughts here Mostly I. Mean. This is just taking me back to so many. Cartoons growing up where Main characters end up in the whales in the Gut of the whale or you know I think there was a schoolhouse rock that Talked about the debt they digestive system and they're inside the digestive system. You end up in there and there's always this idea. Fiction though that you could get out But it's not in section, it is real. So, this is this is my question. The frogs not getting any nutrients from that beatle because it's not being broken down. Why would it keep eating these beadle? I. Would've keep eating these beetles. This is the question well to be fair doesn't care which. Are. To be fair if you eat enough of them. Creates it creates. A. Line. At the back and then the ones that the back of the line ended up getting. Digest. Would they. I don't know if they would think so I think eventually. CONGRESS OUT OF THEIR RINGS Or? Bigger cut escaped on. The. That's how they stimulate their way Oh. Yeah. That's a survival technique that I don't think I've come across before. This is totally no. This is totally. This before this is as far as we know the first study to report successful escape prey insects from the event of a Predator and from the vent that means yet but let me about the Khloe, the all in one hole as it were. In that and this is the first where we've seen it they they promote excretion to escape. So. This is a whole new strategy out there. That needs to be studied. How do they do it? How do they promote excretion? Why do you throw stories of this is yeah. So many questions, but this is the first time that they've seen it. So that in itself is how common is this but that four other frogs then. Four completely different species also did this. With this beetle, we don't have Beatles just A. Staff. Beating me isn't GonNa do. Some teeth. Gosh. What a fun story to end the animal corner on that was fantastic. We have one question for our this week in science questions. And we've talked about this a little bit kind of in passing but. The e mail we got said, hope you folks are staying safe over there both physically, and mentally we haven't had a case in our state for a couple of weeks now. So fingers crossed my question for twists is that for the last six months, there's been a large increase in personal hygiene from social distancing to handwashing to the use of Santa's sanitizer. Or just staying home, we've been exposed to less less pathogens and the drop in common diseases like influenza have been quite marked and measurable and people are still having babies maybe more than usual later in the year. Hey, lockdown was boring right. As you know, the hygiene thesis is the idea that a decrease in exposure to microorganisms particularly in children leads to greater problems with allergies and immune diseases and your time will tell but you think we will see more problems in the upcoming months and years or will this be a worldwide experiment to disprove the.

"I dig most about Casey SC Santa Cruz is that they play stuff that I love Peace. This is a message from Dr Jerome Adam's surgeon general, United States, Dr Deborah Berks. A current virus response coordinator and Dr Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes for Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Why should young people care about the spread of Corona virus, But we know that people with underlying medical conditions over the age of 60 are at highest risk, but they've got to get it from somebody.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on the Return of Sports in America
"Dr Chee Hello. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me. Dr Anthony. FAUCI is the director of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also coincidentally went to the same high school as me Regis High School in New York City. Dr. You're a very busy man. I'm so grateful for the time you've given us so. I have many pressing things to ask you about, but I would feel negligent as a sports journalist. If I didn't start with the action on the fields, the Great Anthony Fauci was there to throw out the first pitch and this was not a great pitch. He's an epidemiologist is first pitch on opening day last Thursday. happened. Well. It certainly was a mishap part I had been practising for two days before a walk down that I thought was sixty feet. And it was really probably forty five. And I was throwing throwing in throwing and I got it right. But only was at forty five feet and I kinda hurt my mom because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me. But I said Hell I could suck it up and just throw it the way I'd been practising when I got to the mound. I said Oh my God Sean doolittle looked like he was two hundred feet away. A. So. What I did was I completely changed the form of my throw and instead of just throwing it lobby, get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only. It just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. In terms of the real baseball news this week, it concerns the fact that over a dozen members of the organization tested positive for Covid Nineteen and Major League Baseball has since spawned Marlins Games until Sunday after some teams including the one you root for the nationals they raised concerns about traveling to Miami to actually play. So what's your assessment of how major? League Baseball has handled this corona virus up rick? You. Know I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that. They've done virtually everything that you do. To try to get the goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team when I had discussion with some of the officials of different teams as well as of MLB in general, we went over the different kinds of protocols that they would need, testing and things. One of the things that came up as a big concern is what happens if a cluster of players get infected and how you gonNA handle that with that wind up, not only shutting down the team? Would it then impact on other teams that would be playing? So it was a consideration I think we're going to have to take. On a day by day week by week basis I hope. that it doesn't interfere completely with the progression of this truncated season because the players certainly WanNa play, they don't want to endanger their health that's for sure and the fans at least on TV would like to see it. So I think we're going to have to see what happens over the next few days to a week, but I can tell you that a lot of good faith. Faith effort was put into this by the owners by the play reps by the players themselves. So I hope that this is just a temporary setback and that we can continue the season. But again, the most important thing is the safety and the welfare of the players under the personnel associated and the place family too. Because, if you get infected, you've got to be concerned about spreading it.

"Up up to 30% of the people may test positive a developed symptoms eight plus days later. So yes, I think that's a very important point. That bent list and it was very helpful about What she put out about what happens if you are around somewhere with covert 19 and it talks about isolating yourself and getting tested six or seven days later, you know again, not having symptoms doesn't mean you are an infection, and it doesn't you don't mean the test was wrong. So you know, we could be very, very careful and, you know, reach out and notify both health care providers and other people because contact tree is going to be very, very important. Although, you know now you hear what happened with that. Stafford's wife thinking like Oh, my God, I don't want to tell anybody. Anything in terrified you're gonna be asked. Your size isn't it is it is and you know, just hearing her. Her kind of her experiences was it was just fascination. She was yelled at in a grocery store. Get out of here. You're killing people. You're endangering people's lives, and it turns out it was a negative test. I mean, he tested negative and she might have known that already. I don't know if there was like, three in a row. Negative test at that point, but still sort of that. You know that. I followed her that stigma of having someone in the family and I suppose if he was positive, they probably for the best. You know, to take the precaution. You should. You should stay home and self isolate. But I don't know where she was. At that point, you know she had already found out That it was negative three times in a row. Which seems negative. Hey, Dr C. Let me ask you about this, too, Because this is something else has come up somewhere. Health officials have mentioned it in the recent news conferences, including yesterday, Doctor and Ziggy made a big point of this in the afternoon news news conference that were carried here on W g. N The presser at like 2 30 she said, just Hey, everybody be on the lookout because some of the symptoms are very, very that did they seem like allergies. Even there are like so many different. There's a range of symptoms and how this presents and she was saying that people feel like I just had a little sniffles right now. It was a little this and it didn't seem like he needed to get tester didn't seem like I was in any risk, and then later found out that you know they may have spread, I suppose, or they definitely had it. Adding of abundance of caution. I understand what you're trying to accomplish. You know, it's this is such if we took this discussion, Anna that we're having, and we'd rewind like, not even a year ago. This wouldn't even be a discussion. But the fact that we're in the midst of a pandemic and we're not this isn't like, Oh, this is ahh spiking, and we'd never come out of the first face. Sort of. We've been smouldering, You know, it's been a brushfire that smoldering and their pockets That sort of we get the big outbreak in and now you have to work very hard, you know, with mitigation strategies to contain it, But a year ago, you wouldn't think that, But now it's different. And and again, none of us have ever lived. These are absolutely ridiculous times, right? None of us have ever lived through pandemic And you know, because of all of these things, and we don't have a vaccine, and you know our ability to control things. Why didn't told me the things that we're doing Essentially. It's a problem. I think you have to, you know, always assumed the worst when it comes to this and, you know, act as if you have it. A killed proving you don't. Yeah, it's probably a good idea this or Yale study here that says, If you're healthy, most likely you'll get a fever. Shakiness. Nasal symptoms dry cough, and you'll feel kind of crappy and like intrinsic, he said, to get the sniffles or kind of allergy like symptoms. But then they said, a knows me and I'm probably saying that wrong. The loss of sense in personnel is what is it? Not beyond as MIA. I just thought of nose because it smells, but that's not what works. Apparently so, it says, was the predict. Most predicted symptom on ly half the people who reported losing their sense of smell tested positive, but it still was one of the first that sort of like in the early stages that people felt that most predicted that they were going to get it. That while do you remember when we first started China like Wow. You know, it was a weird all of a sudden. It was so weird account to thousands of people could I know what it was? Because when that first came out, really? Is that really a symptom? And it turns out that it's one of the most most common and predictors you maybe. You know you're on floor. Potentially more symptoms to come. Hey, I want to ask you about that study involving kids, and then you've got something about immune system and sleep to talkabout as well. We've got a pause here with Dr Steve Saltzman from Green Care, Medical and ah, we'll continue that conversation on the other side. First I got to tell you this more leads to coming back. And I'm looking forward to spending less time staying home watching reruns more time staying home watching.
What the Pain We Experience in Our Body Really Means
"The more that I learned about functional medicine and wellness. The more I'm sort of convinced that are more than our diet more than anything else. It's really our emotional health that really everything you could be eating perfect diet, but if you're troubled mentally by something, if something's on your mind, if you're afraid to have a particular conversation, whatever you can drive yourself sick and I'm sure you see it. People coming in, and there's this tension in their body, and they're doing all the right things, and you kind of maybe have a hunch what you say to those people. And how do you help them? Kind of dig it out when it's emotionally related. This, that's such a good point I think you know even Chinese medicine, there are certain organs that hold certain emotional centers for example. I know a lot of people on here can probably relate to having tight. Hip Flexes Hip flexor traditionally related to the emotion anger, so if we are going back to how emotions are stored in the body, they are stored not only in our organs also China's in the liver. is a seat of anger and so going back to movement and stretching and paying attention to that. Sometimes you know you. You hear people who take up yoga for example they do this yoga class, and they might be crying at the end of it or something. That's because or you know they go to a body worker Tom. Myers is a big leader in the fossil world. And he says you know sometimes he doesn't agree with body workers who just go in super aggressive and like you know working on people for that exact reason, because sometimes we are harboring whatever emotion in our body the motion is stored in the body exactly and so the minute. You know you sort of needed gentle and I find when I'm working on people's hip flexor to like there's an immediate you can see it in their face like when you touch their hip flexor. They cut F-. There's kind of this like you have to ask permission. You're sort of you know slowly pal painting in and then slowly working on it because you. You just can't go in and immediately work on it with crazy pressure for certain people. You know because they might have that, but yet I don't know them all off on my head, but emotions are definitely stored all over our body, our muscles and our organs, and so what I would say to those people a again is what the advice that I. I would say anyways is start with movement. Start with getting your body worked on 'cause. Sometimes it's hard for people to go in and a notice what the feelings are feeling, but I do say to my patients put a if I had a record or in your head all day long. What kinda thought it'd be coming up. We'll be the themes that keep. Keep coming up. What will be the tone that kept coming on the record? That's playing exactly. Yeah, and you know we always say what's the story that's playing over and over in your head right so Yeah I. Think I I think the good thing about that is that the body also impacts the brain so sometimes when you can't walk through some. If to ask yourself and look at yourself like where are you and do you need some work on the body? you know. Do you need to try tapping? Do need to see yes. A chiropractic doctors familiar with functional medicine. Do you need to do something to unlock things a little bit and to release this past stored? Trauma Center. That's inside the body that just stagnant. Oh for sure, even doing body scans. You know lying down and Kinda just in your head, saying okay, how are my fingers feeling? How is my palm of my hand feeling? How is my forearm feeling? How is my upper arm? Feeling and doing a whole scan of your entire body? Sometimes you'll, your mind will take you to certain places, and that might be an area of storage, and you might feel really sad. When you do a certain scan somewhere, you might feel. Feel really happy when you think of somewhere and that is exactly goes back to those emotions, disconnection from one's inner world is often caused by internalization. We feel things, and we keep them inside instead of expressing them with the people around us. We don't always process. Are True feelings? My dear friend John Immoral a Chiropractor, author and educator talks to us about how this disconnection can create stress, pain and trauma inside of our bodies. Some people don't even have a reference for a what it's like to be in flow they. Have felt truly. Ease and peace and flow and expansion energy flowing, because the body's been in a hyper vigilant state since they were going, and they have no referencing for even what could be possible, and I found that along the way so many human beings like the initials, my own experience, because I had very severe asthma, asthma and allergies, and all these reactive things happening in my body, growing up, and I was treated with. Injections for years I was given. It has been hailers giving cortisone creams, corticosteroid so I was. I was being treated from the outside in because my body was reacting to the environment, but my body was reacting to the environment because what I realized in my journey was because I was. I was feeling strong feelings and experiences that I didn't. But I wasn't connected to what I was feeling, so my I couldn't associate in a dialogue or a relationship with my inner world with my body, sensations and feedback, so it was numb. Inside
Fauci says "serious threats" have been made against him and his family
"The family of Dr Anthony Fauci has been receiving death threats more from US radios. John Hunt, Dr. Anthony, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases from more than three decades has grappled with several public health crisis, including the AIDS epidemic and now Co 19 in an interview with CNN found, she said the magnitude of criticism he is now receiving Is different than ever before, and that he and his family continuously are seriously threatened, she said. The criticism has been pushed aside as stupid people saying stupid things about, she said the amount of hate mail against him. His wife and his daughters is
White House seeks to discredit Dr Fauci in leaked memo

The News of the document comes as to senior level white.

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Life Sciences
"Live. Let's kick it off as Glenn with Meta data. You're on the and business podcast. So Glenn Are we're GonNa talk a bit about the future. And we're in this wild time in your industry with the corona virus, but I wanted ground us in the now. When when you look even in the space for twenty years you look at where data are starting to transform processes in life sciences. How do you like to frame it? What's the state of affairs today? So I think if you. If you look at what happens in life sciences outside of data, we just look. People, the big trend that we're seeing is it's good trend. That's the world I. WanNa live in as a patient. Therapies are getting more. Effective therapies are getting safer, and it's because they're being designed very different. Way used to be that you try to create a therapy that worked for as many people as you possibly could, and you would maybe high fiving in the hallways. If you right for Outta ten patients, you know this. This was the world of the blockbuster drugs, and it was about as imprecise as possible like a patient has a blood pressure over this. Give him this drug. Patients got cholesterol over that. Give them this other drug, and now as you start to get into these more effective therapies because they're more precise. Actually start to create an interesting data problem, and that is you start to have smaller and smaller denominators. If I'm starting to in well, this drug isn't district people who have a blood pressure over this. They also need to have this gene. They also need to have or not have this pre existing condition. ETC, acceptance every time I come up with more criteria. The pool of patients who are going to bed. And remember. We're making things that people take. They put in their bodies, and we've to make sure that they're safe. Not just effective, and there's a good way regulatory bodies who are protecting that safety and efficacy. So now as these patient pools, who will benefit therapies get smaller. We also have smaller smaller pool of people who we can use from a research perspective would be volunteering. Stoke the specificity, which is great means that we have a scarcity of patients that we've got to deal with a new way and I think that's been driving at least I have a very kind of drug development centric view of the world. About a drug discovery. Can I find a new molecule I really focus on the will what do I? Do if I think I've got something that's going to cure this kind of cancer. Think about making more evidence, but with fewer people line. Smaller denominators I think that's a big piece of what's driving the data landscape in life sciences. The other thing that I'll tell you which is kind of interesting, is that the life sciences industry has not been really good about data, standardization and a guy. He was a big influence in the way I think about data medi data chief data officer starting from about five years ago, his name's David, Lee and He came out of the insurance industry. Any any taught me that data standardization. Doesn't sound sexy, but until you do that, you can't benchmark until you do that. You create a predictive model and the life. Sciences Industry hasn't been great about data standardization because everybody was doing stuff for this one drug in this one area, and so I see people outside of Medi data as well, but certainly the kind of stuff that we do is we try to use AI to climb that data value curve. How do we a figure out how to standardize data in different ways data from different sources about different things? Let me just give you one quick tangent example. I got asked very kindly to speak at a conference about Ab-. Stroke and I do not know anything about cardiology like I did cancer research before we started medi data I'm comfortable talking about oncology, so I figured I better. Get ahead of it if they're asked me to. Present and I got up on stage and I said listen I. Don't know anything about stroke. But if I was speaking to a bunch of oncologists, and they were trying to build a predictive model around cancer diagnosis, and they were only looking at cancer research. They're not going to be very successful because everybody already has cancer in those research studies, but if you were to be able to go and look at large-scale cardiology studies, stroke studies studies about hard tax. If I were to go, pull data from studies research about diabetes. Then I'm going to know what those patients looked like before their cancer diagnosis, and then I can start to use. Use that to build that model so when you put that Lens on things, you realize I need to standardize data across a lot of different kinds of patients and a lot of different kinds of research patients who are in research. I have to stack the deck. I don't mean that in a various way create to create the biggest possible denominator to create the most evidence generating. Data set that I can, and even just generating that data set requires ai tool sometimes, and then once you got that data set. I think probably inherently obviously you. You've got more traditional statistical tools and methods with frankly work great and a lot of the shared also can start to apply things like machine learning neural that works and look for look for signal that you might have missed or enhanced signal. That wasn't there traditionally so I. I do think that's happening I. Feel Pretty Good. There's a lot more we. We can do, but we're. We've started as an industry getting that right. Yeah, until there's couple of things to poke into here I. Like the landscape paint I'm going to dive into a couple of things. You mentioned one of which was around standardization, so yeah, I mean what a tough problem! I think everybody. We've interviewed in healthcare. You guys are in Pharma. If I was ever GONNA be selling a product, probably said the six time on the podcast never be selling artificial intelligence solutions to hospitals like a break one. One of the Pharma companies, but in healthcare, broadly whether they be life, sciences, or or diagnostics, or whatever the case may be just data, being goofy, and like in silos and locked up and not uniform sort of this big ubiquitous issue is this when you talk about the standardization, clearly from what I understand of our look into companies like the MERCS and the bears of the world. They're beginning to try to do this with their own big corpus's of historical information, whatever being able to streamline things so that it's. It's findable, maybe not machine readable yet. They don't necessarily know where that's going to add value just yet in most cases, but but at least make it more uniform. Is this something that the industry is GonNa have to get to the same page from kind of a regulatory or kind of soft law level, or is this just per company? We're GONNA have to come up with data governance policies within our firm and just be really steady about those across silos. Like how do you see this rolling out? Yeah, so? Well I. DO think that individual companies are working on that, but I also think that there's industry organizations. There's commercial entities. My own included who are trying to do that beyond the walls of an individual company and I think we're GONNA have to I. Don't think the data that one company has is going to be sufficient. Across all the use cases that we'd not just a good idea commercially, but we have a medical ethical obligation to create the best care possible when data sets and I do think that the data quality is a really important thing to think about if if it's a a regulatory prescriptive method of doing it or the way regulation works today, which is demonstrate to people that you've done a responsible set of work to standardize things and prove it, but a lot of people will point a finger at regulators and say they're slowing down innovation, sometimes particularly and Pharma and I do not believe. believe that at all regulators. Job Isn't to be like Glen, you're a great guy, so you know I believe what all your data and Algorithms put out. No job is to protect the public health and say Glenn proved to me on paper that you did something that was scientifically ethically responsible to jobs. Is So so i? Think if that requirement is there? What you'll see is individual companies trying to solve this on their own, and I've seen this before in life, science space with other technology things, even just the management data used to be every company tried to do it their way. Out of their basement, and then twenty years later, this medi data do Thanh, research and again we're not the only company doing it, but you see platform providers that are doing it at a larger scale so when I see everybody trying to do it individually get excited because that means that there's actually a market demand for that. And you're creating a marketplace where the best technologies, the best rhythms, the best data sources will create something that more and more people will come onto, and that's how that's everybody clearly. I think we could extrapolate that for those of you. Listening into almost any industry right I think people say this. Even about I'm just GONNA throw some random stuff at ya like automotives. Hey, if we're GONNA make safe self driving cars. Do we want Ford my develop something about some certain snowy driving circumstance like there's GonNa. Be Some things that are going to have to be transferable so that everybody's safer on the dam road and with drugs. Maybe it's the same way. Business Opportunities Hey if we can be the ones who even through kind of soft news. Can Be. The folks that people rely on to develop a system instruct sure that's going to build a really sticky market position in clearly from a business perspective. That's that's an appeal as well part of the challenge see in life, sciences and I know you've obviously you guys have dealt with this and found ways around or whatever there's there's a way to frame it, but you know I. Look at companies like we just did a piece on Johnson and Johnson for example looking at some of their current innovations and investments today I. Frankly we. We don't see a tremendous amount, but they're involved in a consortium called Melody Out in Europe somewhere from not mistaken where Santa a bunch of other big players are from what I understand exposing a certain amount of data is being trained on in some aggregate sense in everybody's GonNa get a little bit of the benefit from it. How do we do this? Hey, we all have the same uniform stuff. Hey, we're able to kind of like mould things across companies. How do we do that without giving away the secret sauce, because of course? Clearly as a drug development firm that there's a humanitarian side, and then clearly we have to make payroll in in. That would mean that we've got to keep some of the things that are secret. So how do we uniform things and maybe cross pollinate without the risk of US losing her crowned jewels yet? So that is not an easy thing to do I'm I'm super appreciative of it. The way we've at least tried to tackle that problem is by creating like a give to get dynamic. There are definitely companies out there that sell data. And I think there's a great place for them in the world. Probably doing and we'll do some awesome stuff I. think there's there's a great place in the world for not for profit groups who say hey just throw your data. Here will create naturally yet. For sure, that's all all good, but I also think there's a place for a model where you say look if you put your data into this, what is effectively proprietary bucket, but with a third party that you trust and let that third party that make sure that everybody who's putting their data into that pool is protected in terms of not showing the specifics of your individual data points, so in your example. You know Sanofi doesn't see Johnson and Johnson's data. But you've got enough people in there that you can do things in aggregate and let people compare their own specific data to the more generalized bigger denominator that Medi date, or whoever it is or you and it's done at the standardization is done for you in a way that this transparent and you can believe in the results I think that's a really interesting commercial model, and then must exist in other industries I just not an expert. Well, it's. The way you're talking about it makes it sound like it's kind of a Nathan idea, even for you guys where it's like well. We think that there could be a space for this like it's something that could have all right. It's like an I believe you're right I, think actually it absolutely. Could I just think you Mr Glanton? Whoever your your absolute best partnership guys, you know you'd better be drinking beers or some of these people because there's a lot of trust that goes into those kind of relationships. So. There's a lot of trust that goes along in life sciences anywhere for sure yet. You're dealing with data about patients in some way. Holly anybody in medicine right has a person's life in their hands, but if if we're working on a vaccine for SARS, come to I, mean literally billions of people are going to get it like you've got billions of lives in. In your hands, so he's already. A lot of trust is important in our industry and I. do think that what will see by the way. There's posters at scientific sessions that we've done. There's clients right now are taking some of these aggregated data sets to regulators, and they're using them to demonstrate exactly what I was saying before. Their drugs are safe and effective. But with different kind of aggregated denominator, we call it a synthetic control arm, and it's not that is android senator anything synthesis out of the people it, synthesizing people who are in lots of different research studies into a cohort they can be used as. As a valid competitor to the patients who you treated with your new drought, Nisa solving that problem, you're saying of the narrowness if you have some super niche allergy medication for people with a certain kind of whatever then yeah, maybe you really need to extrapolate in that kind of uniform data, way and and kind of square that circle that you. And I actually think that not only by I know this is happening. See it happening, but this is a harbinger of things to come because. I gave. Let's take it to its most extreme, so in all US oncology, because it's happening there I and cancer, but I think it's going to happen in almost every therapeutic area, probably even like analgesics, and what the next tylenol is, but we are all so interestingly I mean at biologically individual and people talk about cancer therapy, and almost every patient really is like an end of one problem. There is nobody who has your. Your exact same tumor right in your tumor has probably different kinds of cells that have different mutations even within this one problem in your body. So when you start to think about that, we have to use these techniques to extrapolate what the best therapy is for every single person at the right time down to individual. We're going to need as an industry and I'm not just talking about now. Life Sciences although I think by scientists. Imprint part of the for sure. It's GonNa. Pay For a lot of this Oh. Yeah, sure I sure, but but these mathematical models that we used to figure out what to do for individuals there being born right now using these techniques stacking up all this data and figuring out how to use as a group. We're GONNA use that against individuals, so this stacking I'm just going to clarify this point will move into the next question, but I wanNA nutshell this for the audience the stacking is it sounded almost like a combination of two things one if we can have some. Unification, around the data, we can combine it in certain ways where nobody's giving away their secret sauce, but maybe we were able to get bigger cluster of people who have a specific genetic condition, or whatever, and then use that for for our clinical trials. That's one side of it. You also mentioned Kinda the synthetic sort of element. was that kind of like you know what immediately came to my mind? was you know we're we're? We're training an algorithm to read handwriting. You know we'll come up with a bunch of programmatic generated handwriting. That might be slight variations of things like using that I. Don't think that's what you. You meant there, but what? What did you mean by synthetic again? No, so you got that stack. We've got stack of every patient and I'm coming to see you I say all right well. What am I going to treat Glenn while I got to figure out because Glenn's unique. WHO's similar to Glen and so what you do? Is You build these kind of like Matrix views, patients and you start to use algorithms to compare Glenn with everybody in the stack. Yeah Okay Okay you, you pull those people out of the stack, and you then synthesize them into a group of smaller stack, but that is purpose built. To make a guess about what to do best for Glenn Don or all them. You synthesize one of these smaller stacks from the big one to use as a competitor the same way if I had a group of patients who I gave my new drug to and I'll give another group of patients a placebo sugar pill right I, compare them with like. Well, should I be giving people sugar pills if we have tons of people who are in research, who already gotten the standard of care? Can I reset the CISE? Those people into a comparative instead of exposing a whole bunch of volunteer patience to something that. Does, not effective, and that's the synthesis of the group. Yeah, it's not robots. You're not talking about programmatic degenerate I wasn't suspecting were so. It is it is quite interesting. Because the direct analogy, some of our listeners are avid readers that emerged dot com, always covering use cases in different industries. We think about how a net flicks or Amazon does recommendations you know. You're stripping, you know. In their case, it's purchase behavior. Geo Location whatever else for you. It's genetic stuff in health history, whatever and yeah, you just find in those similar clusters and being able to extrapolate a little bit. You know the movie Gatica. People haven't seen it like the ideas like your DNA decides whether or not you're going to be an astronaut or somebody who's cleaning, toilets or something, cleaning toilets, and of course, of course, that's patently ludicrous, because your genes interestingly don't change that much there. In instances where mutations and things, but actually I I can't tell you much more about your health today than I could have told you about your health the day you. You were born because it's a static data. Set Your Connecticut Right. That is a very simple view of it. There's a lot more elaborate stuff, but if you think about all the stuff that is changing about you overtime, Gina Type, and then all of your phenotype, and you start to measure that stuff and you start to think about it. It really is a problem of finding not one needle, but the right ten. Ten needles in the haystack that allow us to make the best comparison between Glen or a group of patients and patients like them, and that's another place where these artificial intelligence tools are used, so we use them to create stacks, but we also use them to select the right needles out of those haystacks to create these comparative groups Yup I. See those reasonable applications I would be you know. BE FRANK WITH YOU IF If that struck me as not possible based on precedents and other industries, but that clustering strikes me as quite possible, particularly solve that data harmonisation issue. I mean that's a Lotta. The crux of it I know we're just about to wrap up I know you have seen a lot of things change with covid nineteen. Thinking about what that means for the future of your industry. Any closing thoughts before we wrap on. What this means for now in the near future in life sciences. Yes so at the risk of making Not Look that good? Because, I'm definitely including myself in this criticism wouldn't have been nice if we had all that patient data stacked up. And I mean they're. They're few million patients around the world who are in studies on the Medi Data Platform. It's all different companies doing the research with their data, but can you imagine if we had that stack? And we were paying attention to in the hundred fifty countries that we do research knowing some of these patients, genetics, and all of their pheno types in a better way than we normally do in medicine, because we see them consistently wouldn't have been great for layer on like who seems to be coming down with cove nineteen I mean no, no, no, no doubt, no young. And I think that that that's an interesting. You put like an exclamation point on why we need to do this. It's like there's an ethical imperative, not just a commercial driver to think about data in different ways. Yeah, yeah, well. To some degree you know my thought is like what you're articulating makes a tremendous amount of sense. Given Your Business Model. It makes slightly less if I work at Bayer. However like despite the biased tilt, I do understand the value prop and I do think that it is compelling and I think it does feel like it'll have to be the future. People are not going to keep distance silos forever. I do think it make sense. Air Because, if you if pharmaceutical a pharmaceutical company B. comes out with the same effectively drug, and and they're competing for the same group of patients, and neither of them knows that you might be better off taking drug Abe before drug be or drug be is better in a certain kind of of patient than drug. As than actually, you are not serving your customer and you're. You're not generating the revenue that you could be generating, and so you should be motivated with other companies to lineup tightly. In terms of what is the best way to treat patients I actually think it's in your best interest. i. e Clayton clearly is I mean there's a little bit more potentially to lose while in your firm, it's it's almost explicitly to game but I. I think he'd do things like you see things like melody you see companies like yours have been tremendously successful. You guys were acquired recently. You know massive congratulations for that and yes I think long term it's not against their interests by any means, and hopefully I think Glenn. It'll be part of the future. I know these are things you've thought about for. People are interested. Interested in some Glenn stocks is a book coming out in August called the patient equation by Wiley. It's about precision medicine in the age of Covid nineteen and beyond Glenn. If people are interested in in stay in touch following your thoughts, we live sciences I. Know We have a lot of people that follow that space. Where should they go on the web to find you? Cou. You could find me on twitter, etc, at captain, clinical a fictitious superhero for good science. And meditated accomplish our website for anybody interested. There's all kinds of papers and men links to publications. We do academic stuff, too, so it's not all commercial awesome, all right,
Trump pushes state, local leaders to reopen schools in fall
"Should schools and colleges reopen this fall the White House and the nation's biggest education union are at odds over whether that should happen to the president everybody wanted the moms wanted the dads wanted the kids wanted and national education association president lily Eskelsen Garcia says teachers want to be back to but she's blasting the president for pressuring local and state officials into doing it with no plan for keeping everyone safe everything could go wrong even as those at a White House roundtable on re opening said the virus risk to school age kids is minimal you have to ask you've got bad allergies and you're six years old you could do if we do this wrong the president argues those against re opening this fall think it's good for them politically Sager mag ani Washington
When Zina Speaks, You Listen
"Hi everyone welcome back to the body. Serve I'm James. I'm Jonathan. We, have something very exciting today. This is kind of a surprise episode for you all and it is something that we have never done. We have had players on the show before little cute, little ten fifteen minute segments, but we've never had a former player. Sit Down with us today. The Legend Zina garrison sat down with us for an extended chat about her career about being an African American woman and tennis about today's. Today's game and just took us through some of the highlights and some of the insight. She's gained in her illustrious career, on-court and off court. We've been hoping to get this interview for a while, but the timing really couldn't have been any better in doing it. No, because today when you're it well, it's yesterday for us today. When this episode is released will be the thirtieth anniversary to the day of ladies e making. Making the Wimbledon final in one thousand nine hundred beating Monica Selous snapping a S- Thirty six match win streak in the quarter-finals beating number one Steffi Graf in the semi-finals Steffi who had reached the previous thirteen Grand Slam finals, and then playing Martinez to love in the final. We talk about healthy Gibson. XENA had a personal relationship with her. One of the stories that you've probably heard a lot of recently. Is that out? Out the Gibson was in the locker room at Wimbledon right before that that final in one thousand, nine hundred, talking about champagne, maybe adding little pressure, but it's a amazing to see these two generations of pioneering players end up in the same police at that one moment. Zena is unfiltered. She tells you what she's thinking. She says on the show that I don't always talk often, but when I do you know it's important. Aside from her Wimbledon final which you've heard a lot about recently Zina. Garrison is an Olympic gold medalist in doubles with Pam. Shriver and one thousand, nine hundred eighty eight Seoul Games. She is the bronze medalist in singles at those same games. She made the quarterfinals or better at a major fifteen times. She won three grand. Slam mixed doubles titles to at Wimbledon One Australia fourteen time WTI tight list. She is one half of the first ever all. All black WTI final in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six ECKERD, open and the court. She was the USA team captain at the two thousand eight Olympics, she was fed cup. Coach for a number of years and the founder of the Zina Garrison. Academy, which has talked literally tens of thousands of children in Houston to play tennis. The work that Xena has done over the decades with her academy is so phenomenal, and as you can imagine, these are very. Times for all kinds of businesses let alone not for profits, and if you are able to please consider donating to Zina's academy. Zina garrison dot org and make a donation. To to help the kids in Houston continued to get such fabulous instruction free of charge, yet is important to mention perhaps as a preamble to this episode a prologue you can listen to our previous episode on Zina Garrison, which was entitled Wiggle at Legs Zeno, we do ask Xena how we got started in this interview. That's a little bit of supplemental listening. But for now here's our chat with Zina and we hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much. For chatting with us now, no, no problems China stat of this Houston Corona. We don't have it's been really bad here so I was just GonNa ask. How's everything going there? Now we're have had major spikes, so it's GonNa be interesting. So, you mostly staying inside Kinda minding your business. Yeah, not really bad allergies, too so they had the African dust here last week, so when trying to be a net again. Thanks for doing this just a little bit of a preamble as to how we were kinda hoping to do it. We're just GONNA. Run through a few things of your career and get your reaction to it possibly. A Tang into some of the stuff that we may have talked about on the previous that we did as well are you guys seem like you know me so well I. Do. Now Want WanNa. Hear it from you. You've been getting so much press this last month because of the thirtieth anniversary of your Wimbledon final. Did this catch you off guard? Yeah, did really kick me off guard for for two reasons first of all that it was. It's been thirty years like I. You know. It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on. Sounds pretty cool, so this is the first time then that you're just minding your own business, and you're just brought back into tennis because of your career because of social media. Yeah, it's not what ends one guy from England that Chris Ghosn. He always puts stats on there, and so you know sometimes he'll you know bring? He makes me I tell him all the time. He keeps me relevant, but he comes up with these stats out of nowhere in plug. This one just kind of took off so I think because they don't have one with him right now. It's you know it's. It's an people's line because this is the time so.

Five Surprising Benefits Of Yoghurt For Toddlers
"Welcome back everybody for another episode of Kids Nutrition podcast today we're going to talk all about your beds. And before we dive straight in just as usual light to invite you to pick a cord directly into my calendar if you'd like to work with me for example through my fussy eating programs on Vegan nutrition program, and of course I've got my suspected. Food Allergy programs then you can book a call directly in my calendar. I've got a few calls every week and have a few places that I can work with families every month, so these places and spots are limited at the moment, but if you'd like to work with me than please book that call in, and we'll take it from there so today we're going to talk. Talk All about yogurt and the benefits of your goods for kids and I think he ought sometimes get understood because we know that sometimes east can be quite high in sugar, and I've got various blog post at previous episodes sugar that can dive into. If you want to talk more about those individual topics, but today we're going to focus on the positives. The pen fits of. Yoga for kids. Out of the five benefits that we're going to focus on. The first one that had lied to check to you about is of course breakfast now I know sometimes with schools now restarting starting and nurseries and child mind is being open, perhaps some sure and particularly early risers. Get, really early I mean I know some time kids can be awake by six in the morning, and a really bright as it can be by half five, and they want to eat breakfast really utterly so if you need something really quick before they get going to nursery school I often use yoga. Yoga is brilliant because. It's called carbohydrates, protein, and other micronutrients that we're going to focus on as individual benefits, but really Brek. I is one of the most important meals for kids and I appreciate that not all kids want to eat breakfast that early, but for those who do and he wants a really quick option. Then yogurt can be sh. Ask The answer especially, just need to grab something from the Fridge. It's Kohl's is quite refreshing. Once is still quite hot I hope he survived the heat wave by way of sad to see that it's actually quite code at to sort of let the kids leave for the park today wrapped in Cardigan extra layers and things like that. But if you still need something, quite code is they come an individual portions, or you can buy them in tubs and the Great Thing About Yogurt is you can act to it so for those of you. Who are fans of SMOOTHIES? You can use yogurt base and what I do is I often add to it because oats are a nice low releasing carbohydrate foods that helps keep blood sugars, nice and steady through the day. Day, and of course they are, they will add a source of final for that breakfast meal, and you can add other things you can add these pieces of fruit so I let chop up the Nawaz allowed to chop berries whatever you have in the fridge, really or in the fruit bowl and again and more proteins a you can add not butter especially if you have a child who you're worried, the weight, gain and growth. Then you can add not butters to that, and of course you can keep it really really simple for those who are really small appetite, who just want a little something? When they're up? Then you could just grab some of those individual pods of Yogurt, and you're ready to go,
Dr. Fauci says White House testing everyone
"Back now with doctor Anthony Fauci the man at the forefront of trying to slow down covert nineteen in the U. S. he's head of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases I'm curious as to how you been out operating in the world if you have gone out or maybe you're still children emplacement going straight to work work but but have have you you been been to to a a restaurant restaurant have have you you been been to to the the gym gym I I live live in in Washington Washington DC DC I'm I'm an an essential essential personnel personnel for for obvious obvious reasons reasons on on the the temperature temperature of of the the task task force force I wear a mask whenever I go out in public I don't congregate in crowd safety sixty sixty away from people I go to my place at the national institutes of health in Bethesda morning I stay there you know half the day and then I go down to the White House you don't go into the White House unless you get tested for the protection of the president the staff so every time I walk into the White House to get tested so today I got tested and I'm negative do you worry though because everybody wants you to stay healthy so the highs are negative yeah and and you know we were watching a bunch of us were watching the news conference earlier we couldn't help but noting noting that although you were wearing a mask when everybody goes up to the podium you know you don't wipe down the microphone to your figure what kind of standard do you first do you personally worry much about contracting covert because you're in a high risk group let's face it you know I am I am I am I I I think you know nobody knew was a lie group risk will be delivered to talk about my age yeah I'd like now to really know it but I am I am in in in in a high risk group you know as an infectious disease person the life that I've chosen I was involved in the very early years of HIV what we know what the heck it was I was taking care of patients you know day and night you know I've been through the ball are taking care of the ball of patients I've been through all of the infectious disease outbreaks so I have to say it isn't that I'm braver than anybody else but this is what I do this is my job it's kind of like yes the fireman you know you're free to go into a fight with that's the life that that person is chosen I've chosen a life of tracking down there fighting infectious diseases is there a risk yes but you know I'm the one that shows it so I don't I don't worry about it have you eaten one of the cupcakes with your face on it no so I have but you see them right I mean you've seen the T. shirts you see and bumper stickers in the Fouts on the couch pillow is a good one I found today what do you think of all this well you know it's it's a it's a bit surreal I don't take that seriously that that's me I think what it is it's become a symbol because I've been out there speaking the truth trying to get data route trying to talk in an evidence based way in a country that you know that I love dearly and about a country that script in something that they need some comfort and some confidence that people are taking seriously so I become all right bye made my my image has become a symbol but but you know I'm still twenty found she the scientist Dr you know live in Washington DC my friends you know who I am but the rest of the public when they see that you know it becomes more of a symbol than the reality of what I am are you apply no you're worried about other pandemics in the future and maybe you won't be so long before we have the next one have we learned anything from this one and are we taking any action based on what we've learned so that when the inevitable next pandemic comms we are more prepared well yes I mean we have done that we had a pandemic preparedness plan which we put a lot of work into as we were worrying about you remember the famous bird flu the chicken flew back in two thousand five thousand thirteen at a high mortality but it never developed the capability of an effectively and efficiently going from human to human we put a big plant together but this virus that we dealing with now is really so unprecedented certainly if you analyze it and people will analyze it every which way but Sunday when this is over about what we could've done better what we did poorly but this is such an extraordinary virus it kind of like the perfect store form of an outbreak in why it took the world with such a crush and why it is already done so much damage you know there are a couple of characteristics the virus have that would make it really really difficult to contain you know one jump species is a new virus that we've never seen before number two it infects humans number three it affects them very very efficiently spreads like wildfire and then the before what it is it has a high degree of morbidity mortality particularly in vulnerable people so if you have one but not the other of those things are not that bad I give you two quick examples of these because it's important for people to appreciate when we had the chicken flu the one that just jumped from chickens to humans what it did affect the unfortunate children the mortality with like thirty five forty percent terrible the only thing is it was extremely efficient it didn't fit in the person it did not spread from person to person then in two thousand and nine we had the famous swine flu pandemic which was really a pandemic a new virus H. one N. one it had the capability of spreading very very rapidly but on the other side of the coin it wasn't particularly virulent would hardly kill anybody compared to the seasonal flu but what we have here we have one virus that has all of the above it jump species from animal to human it very very efficiently spread from human to human I mean in a frightening way and then number three it have a high degree of ability of metallic particularly among the vulnerable that's the perfect storm of a pandemic and that's the thing that happens like the last time this happened was over a hundred years ago in nineteen eighteen so yes we prepared but clearly the world was not prepared enough hopefully the lesson you learned from this that we know that the unimaginable which this was actually can happen so you really have to be prepared for it well it was a perfect storm Dr we're glad you're working on
Will My Supply Chain Survive COVID-19?
"The commercial aerospace supply chain is writing. The sudden collapse, the spring passenger air travel after the outbreak of the latest novel Corona Virus and it's cove in Nineteen, disease has upended fortunes in the airliner manufacturing industry. That matters because commercial aerospace is responsible for about three quarters of the whole aerospace and defense sectors business activity. Cash is king right now throughout the supply chain and companies are struggling to have enough liquidity, according to what several advisors and analysts tell aviation week. while. Liquidity is more of a function of the wider economic downturn inside aerospace. There are even bigger challenges. Where production rates were once being pushed higher now a Williams are slashing them cascading pressure down the supply chain. At the L. A. M. in the top tier level. It has probably never been more important to have insight into your supply chain. Joining me to talk about that need, and what to do about it are John Schmidt? The Global Andy Lead at Accenture and Joyce Klein. Accenture leader in applied intelligence in the North American amd practice John Joyce. Welcome back. Thanks might go good to be back so John let me start with you. It seems obvious that OEM's and tier ones want insight into their suppliers. But while that was always true, I used to be about making sure that there were no bottlenecks that slowed or stop record high production now things chain what of new conditions that demand and customers pay better attention to their supply chain. Might go and in many ways the aerospace industry you know has a clear split between the companies that are working in the Corso world, and does indefens- you in the commercial. As you say, you know the concern used to be, we have a supply constrained world with very predictable demand, right always pushing for more trying take need those increased rates pushed by Boeing and. and Airbus and in the current world that's changed dramatically to being more of a supply volatile with unpredictable demand in the defense and space side of things you know things have largely remained in a predictable demand with an increased supply chain volatility, so by just keep looking at those things, predictability and the the constraint or volatility the spy chain. That's where the primary differences. And Commercial. We know that demand is going to be directly related to the bounce back of commercial air travel and the relative rates airlines choose to bring back stored aircraft versus take more efficient models on order from the OEM's causing more volatility in and demand, variability and defense. It's a bit different again. Demand Israel remained and the supply chains been impacted by Kobe in some cases they're tier one two or three companies, who source both commercial and defense or trying to generate cash to cover expenses and other cases, local Cobra outbreaks, and our common actions are impacting the spires ability to deliver on schedule, known both cases, aerospace and defense companies need. To deal with all totally like never before whether commercial or defense. So Joyce. Last time John and I talked here on Chuck six with. He kind of gave me the peak and do some new technology you all were working on. It's a new capability to peer into the supply chain including using an algorithm approach that allows more predictive insight, potentially even the ability to hotspot. What factories might be in trouble in the future? Can you tell us a little bit about what accenture is working on? And how does this work? Yes, absolutely Michael Accenture? We've been working with our clients in the supply chain area for many years using analytics and machine learning. In fact, if you go back to last year's pariser show in our accenture shall a. we had a digital showcase. Demo that focused on intelligence supply chain, and what this demo is a together machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and we used I at supply chain Europe e data to really understand delivery delays identify missing parts. We also looked at the opportunity for Automation Muller. Doing now is we're bringing together? All Lot of data sets and we're using artificial intelligence to help companies deal with the increase in volatility manage. Manage uncertainty and really get at supplier resiliency. That's really the core of what our solution is all about now so for North, America a and D client what we've done is we've taken and artificial intelligence engine that uses the supplier Jadot and what we're trying to do. We're actually working to predict the number of days late or a particular part, and we're doing that by bringing together a supplier. Number roaches order number eleven worry day in quantity, combination you all that information, Heather actually identify the number of as laid the opulent part is going to be and so by knowing the number of days way them. What were able to do is fight and determine. Do I have enough inventory? As coverage or that? Particular part is ultimately if I Joan I need to make additional decisions around production, and so what? We've been able to do with our solution. Experience up to ten percent improvement apart availability production. And we're also able to change the role of the delivery service analyst. Previous lanes individuals really operating. All here.

Saharan Dust Cloud Arrives At The U.S. Gulf Coast, Bringing Haze
"It's a journey. That's a weeks and spend thousands of miles across an ocean floating on currents of air today, a massive cloud of dust from the Sahara desert arrives in the southeastern United States to walk us through this meteorological phenomenon. We are joined by Professor Marshall Shepherd. The Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of Georgia welcome. Thank you for having me okay now. I've seen the satellite images, but. But tell us what it's GonNa. Look like from the ground as this wave of dust from the Sahara arrives in the United States. You know we give these things every year and some are bigger than others. These are this year quite large and so I think that's why it's garnering much attention. Typically you lose the blue sky for more hazy Milky Sky. You tend to see more vivid sunsets and sunrises because. Because of the scattering properties of the dust and interacting with the sunlight, so those are sort of the optical effects, but I think people that suffer from allergy to dust or particular matter, they actually might not find it so amusing. They may have some health issues Why is it so much bigger this year than normal? I think one thing that happened this year are e.. Is that that dust in the? The Hell region in parts of Africa sat there, and just collected because the the wind system this African easterly jet meteorologist talk about it took a bit longer to kind of get itself going, and once it gets going, you can belch and Burp that dust out into the Atlantic, and that's what we're seeing now. Because there was somewhat of a delay, there was a lot more desk sitting there the build up. All right so pros you said good sunrises and sunsets, cons, people who have health problems might find that the respiratory problems are worse. What else is this dust system? GonNa do I mean on the whole is a good thing or a bad thing you know one of the things is an earth scientist. The Earth is so connected, and this is just another example so these dust storms they actually can fertilize the oceans in parts of Amazonia. They're carrying things that really help those ecosystems. Ecosystems but on the flip side of that there's been studies recently say they can actually carry pathogens as well so when you think about Mosquitos as a vector born disease carrier some argued that these dust storms can be vectors, they can carry pathogens another perhaps positive however is that the dust? If there were to be a hurricane forming out over the Atlantic hurricanes don't like the dust. If the dust gets into those forming systems, they can weaken those storms quite a bit. How much? Much bigger. Is this one than what we would see in a typical year? You know it's interesting. I saw a colleague tweet scale. They were using some data from NASA NASA Sir several satellites up monitoring air, quality and air constituents, and literally this event was off the chart. It wasn't even the same type of event. It was just so far off the plot scale, and so four people who study atmospheric science like you is a moment totally nerd out and like remember where you. You were when the Great Sahara Dust of two thousand twenty came across the Atlantic I th I think it is I I've seen some sort of very hyperbolic terms like the Godzillas dust storm. Those types of things I don't i. don't tend to like us such hyperbole when I talk about these things, but it is an anomaly event. My good friend and colleague Tom Gill at the University of Texas El. Paso is an expert on dust storms I know he's geeking out on this. I hosted a podcast call, weather, geeks or the weather channel, and we use the term geeking out. I'm certain it. Scientists like Tom. Gillard geeking out over this dust storm. Marshall Shepherd is the Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of and former president of the American meteorological. Society thanks for talking with us about this monster dust storm. Thank you for having me.

How To Get Kids To Drink Water
"Hello and welcome back everybody. I hope you're having a lovely summer willing to do this. Probably lots of bad days I certainly had mine yesterday and I hope that you've had a chance to tune into last week's episode where I will a lovely client of mine came on the PODCAST, share her journey of working through a special diet to manage jars, persistent constipation, and of course, the biggest transformation and I still not saying this to her. I couldn't believe you know watching her son on the screen and. and seeing how much he had grown, he was quite quite slim when I met him any his weight center of it sort of caught up with his length. Santana was really nice to see that he had such a lovely transformation from working with me now I'm sure you're wondering whether my Holly Street. Clinic will be reopening I've just holding fire on that I. will be watching with interest everything that we'll be developing in the news and the guidelines that things are that, but until there are more clear. Guidelines on the safety aspects and things like that I will continue to work with you. As video consultations, I use a video conferencing platform called zoo, and that's been working really well. It means that I've been able to offer you evening appointments and of goes Saturday morning appointments and I think you'll agree. That has worked really well. It has been that you could. We could share screens. We share resources. It's been a really nice way a working. Together. The only thing I'd say is that you know e-. I've had to rely on you to do the growth measurements for me, but apart from that the video conferencing has no in really really well, so if you have been thinking about working with me, then I've got a few programs now and these programs have been tested and tries and sort over the years not being. For fifteen years I'd say my private practice. Really launched when my first child was born, and so it's around five years old now, and during that time always offered video connotations, and it's my services have certainly evolved over the years and the programs that are currently offer inclusive course of Fussy eating solutions of the vegan nutrition program and I also have the milk allergy program, and these specifically for if you suspect your child may have delays cosmopolitan allergy and it lied to work with someone like me. Who has years of experience working with children? And of course twelve of those years were at the world, renowned gretel mystery children's hospital where we've seen children from. Loads and notes of backgrounds, different backgrounds so without further ado, let's get started with this week's podcast episode all about fluids, but before I forget always forget to let you know that you can book a free fifteen minute call with navy to know all the different ways of working with me whether that's as part of my programs that are specific for the different. Nutrition problems that you'd want me. Media Help you solve or navigate and manage all if he just offer one of consultation on a very very specific nutrient problem that did not discuss it me then I do have a variety of ways that you can work with me. So I was watching the news this morning and I was so excited. That is going to get really hot next week. What my husband said Oh my goodness. That's too hot for me. Temperatures getting up to the D. degrees that Sina. He finds that really really hot, but I'm excited. I love hot weather so. But of course I'm sure you're thinking I've got to make sure that the kids drink plenty of liquids and absolutely rise have got seven tried and tested ways to get toddler Dettori water and this blog post that have for you has been really really popular Saito. This is the perfect time to shine these tips with you as a podcast episode, and of course, the first most obvious is to run through, and that goes without saying just like you would for picky eating. We know that children mimic behavior, so make sure that your drinking regularly as well especially the type of fluids that you choose would be really important now I. Have a confession to make. I am not the biggest fan of Water I. Know you're probably thinking what sort of Dietitian doesn't drink water well. When we moved, I was around thirteen years when we moved from. Oman's ice live in mind when we moved to. New Zealand, the water in New Zealand Israeli men wrote tasting. It has really. which actually is maybe lovely in hindsight, but you can't say that water doesn't have it taste. I obviously have very high on hypersensitive to taste and I found the taste of water. It just didn't appeal to me at the time and so I. Would you drink flavored water? Are they confess I did drink things like dont trains as a teenager and things like that I swipe. Not Great Choices, but of course because I was also very active in love. Running quite early on I think started running around sixteen years. Dittrich Water I. Probably could have drunk more often than say things like cups of tea, which I drink at the moment or coffee in the morning so. Luckily eight my girls do drink water my new. My husband drinks always as a water bottle in the fridge and he's always drinking from that. As the girls you know, they look up to their dad quite a bit, and they always make sure that they drink with sometimes. They noticed that I do need to remind them

Tell me your answers three to one San Sherry. Daily asshole. I wanted us to both give a point to the other person. I kind of wanted that too, but I should've said hang because you. Toothpaste I want this toothpaste ninety two point remorse now so. Take backs. One's coming in here. It's like all right. You don't have to defend yourselves. I'm fine. I have other sources of validation. My son is very cute, also by those wet kisses. Strew. Stein for asked the science couch. We've got to listen to your question for our couch. finely-honed scientific minds. This is from at the Merrier more. Is there a relationship between seasonal? And public horticulture like the kinds of trees, we plant in cities or their location Oh. Interesting question, well one thing I know is that different cities have very different rules and have had evolving rules as time goes on when it comes to what kind of plants kind of trees they plant, and my guess is that there's some example of subsidy somewhere. That was like what's just plant. This tree and it turned out being very bad for a small slice of the population. Yeah, that's basically what happened like. There is a relationship and it's just from thinking about some. Some aspects of public horticulture, but not all of them, and also just managing people densely. The big talk about this stems from a scientist named Tom Ahlgren who writes about botanical sexism, which is connected to a nineteen forty nine USDA, yearbook of agriculture that suggests that public works projects should plant male trees to avoid dealing with seeds or fruit that need to be cleaned up, so it makes your life easier because in diocese trees which are split between male and female like Cedar Mulberry, Ashtrays, only, the female ones produced the seeds and flowers and the male pollens. So that was one factor that was pushing towards the direction of male trees, and basically, this has led to an overwhelming amount of male trees in some cities, which released a lot more pollen, instead of having a balance of trees that are being fertilized entries that are doing the fertilizing. The Patriarchy strikes again. Wraps up into a very nice neat narrative with a very nice scientific article byline because you're like the trees are sexists to and people. People. Generally see this part of a larger issue, which is just a lack of diversity of how we plant trees, urban areas sort of like you were saying Hank, or or guessing at we just kind of decided what trees look Nice I think in in areas and we're like we're gonNA plant, a bunch of maple trees here just because and so I think people were making more aesthetic choices rather than thinking of a varied ecosystem and biodiversity in urban spaces, and we also just happen to pick some trees and some cities that are really big pollen sources as opposed to. To trees that are lesser pollen sources, and we just like I don't know. Don't manage them. I don't know how much maintenance goes into public horticulture. When you play the tree and then leave it, and then people are just like well a trees there now. Thank you to everybody who has sent in your questions for the science couch.

"A hot. It's too late now. Everybody get ready for the fact off to panelists have fraught science facts for the others and an attempt to blow their minds, the present easy to assemble to awarded the fact that they like the most, but if they hate all of the facts, they can throw their Sam buck away, and we're GONNA. Decide who goes first with a trivia question that I do not have because I. am one of. Of the people the Trivia question is according to a two thousand one study. What percentage of peanut allergy cases are outgrowing in people aged four to twenty fifty four percent, Oh, I wanNA guess thirty six feels like low to me like we hear about peanut allergies lot. Yeah, I feel. It feels like a little to me. I was going for the non intuitive answer. I was like this is going to be surprise. Well? It was twenty two percent you bet. was closer okay well. I'M GONNA. Go first to get it over with so across the globe in cities like Melbourne, Australia London. England nationals Italy Atlanta in the US tens or hundreds or even thousands of people have had their breath taken away literally with asthma attacks because of thunderstorms, and in some of those situations between twenty and forty percent of those people had never experienced asthma symptoms before. Before so, this posed quite a mystery to health professionals. They call this phenomenon thunderstorm asthma and it's actually pretty rare, so like every thunderstorm doesn't lead to thunderstorm asthma scientists. Best guess is that it relies on a perfect storm of factors I. There have to be pollen grains floating around, so it needs to be in the spring or summer ish. This situation where plants are already releasing pollen. And the situation gets tastier. Pollen from. Ryegrass but a lot of grasses, especially, which are more common allergies. And normally, even if allergens like pollen are blowing around, our bodies have ways to filter out big grains in nasal passages, or somehow like you can see before they get to our lungs, so after all this pollen, it is in the air. A updraft of warm air that forms the thunderstorm also sucks up pollen which get wet and undergo a process called Osmanovic shock where the pollen grains explode into smaller pieces like starch, granules and Germany and fungal spores or other like molecular size particles that can induce asthma like proteins actually trigger it and can get deeper into our lungs more easily because they can just fly inside our system, and then the downdraft, sir outflow in the windy rainy thunderstorm can carry these particles back down. Humans who are breathing in air, and this in some cases, causes large swath of people, some of whom haven't dealt asthma before to start like constricting the airways and coughing. It seems like this is a bigger problem because when it happens. Hospitals are just overwhelmed with asthma cases where a bunch of people who don't have inhalers aren't prepared for this situation or all of a sudden put into an ethnic. So, we'd like to be able to predict when thunderstorm asthma is going to happen, so we don't overwhelm our medical systems much, and because changing climates, thunderstorms are predicted to become more severe and with more severe thunderstorms and more frequent thunderstorms. It's possible that these factors may combine and cause more thunderstorm asthma. The particle of pollen gets exploded by pressure. Differential I think something to do with the pressure differential on water I couldn't fully understand what Monica talking. Does, but it's like the warm wet air swooping up. It like absorbs the water, and that's too much, and so at bursts I think sort of like a cell that would lice so in the places that you mentioned that the beginning are those have these happen a lot, or is that are those just like certain instances of it happening certain instances of happening? It's like it's. It's more well reported in Europe and Australia, but incurs and more places than that, but I feel like the biggest one recently was in twenty, sixteen or twenty, seventeen in Melbourne that was one of a couple thousand people like I think she sheet. Thousand People all got asthma at the same time Oscar, thunderstorm now I'm paranoid about the thunder storm brewing outside right now. It'll probably be fine. People who stayed indoors and kept their windows, closed and breathing the pollen chunks, though okay, I'm always inside with my windows closed. Right so the time for my fact. Allergies are a problem. Sometimes. Your body is like I have identified a bad thing, and I'm going to help you. Get rid of it. And sometimes your body is like I have identified a a unannymous piece of plant, and now I will make your face. Secrete Mucus for a month and so that shouldn't happen. It is a it is a kind of disease or disorder, and we have systems in our bodies that prevent it from happening. One of those systems is a is a special kind of cell that is inside of your skin, called a langer hand cell, and their job is to present bits of potential pathogens to other immune cells to help them decide how to respond to those potential pathogens, and as part of that those cells play a role in training, our immune system to. To not respond to things they shouldn't react to. allergens would be these pro teams that we shouldn't respond to that. We sometimes do oral langer hand cells, which are a special kind of langer hand cells that are in the mouth. They're also called. LC's seemed to play a really important role in suppressing allergic reactions, and that makes them potentially very interesting for immunotherapy treatments that desensitize a patient to allergens so that we do not have like Hay, fever and stuff, so these oil sees are found and a particularly high density in the. Region of the mouth, which is the area between your teeth, the inside of your cheeks..

"Dogs hot dog color. Color or hotdog fairly pinky. Pink our Angie, it's also in like Doritos and Cheetos like any yellow food you can think of is pretty likely to have the seed, and it can cause some people to develop like IBS and other kinds of. Problems. Yes, Cheetos, I always think of them as being hot dog colored. At the same crunch. Thank your hot dog expiration date. And then I don't I mean? Maybe you can become allergic to your kid? But what this? What the? What? The child allergy one was based on was a steady of one hundred eighty four babies who had parents that regularly sucked on their baby's pacifier to clean it off. Which apparently is the thing? Some people do sixty five of those babies like years later had were much less likely to experience many common food and airborne allergies that are found in children Oh, and the study concluded that the parents might go by might give the baby's immune system like a workout, basically big wet kisses. Big kisses are helping them helping your boy. Yeah, usually when Orrin gives me the West Kiss. It's because his nose is running. I will. I will be sick within six. Next up.

"Our panelists says prepared three science fax for Education and enjoyment, but only one of those facts Israel. The others of US have to figure out a deduction or a wild guess, which is the true fact that if we do, we get a Sam Buck. If we're tricked, then Sam gets the Sam Buck. You can play at home by going to twitter dot com slash. Slash tangents. Make sure you vote before you hear the Real Answer Sam. What are the facts is fairly well known that the bite of some ticks can cause people to become allergic to red meat, and that happens when a tick has recently fed a non human mammal. This is what I think from. My reading is what happens, but you can correct me if I'm wrong. They feed on the Non Human Mammal and then they bite a human and releases. A compound called Alpha Gal into the bloodstream. Alpha Gal is found in most mammals blood, but not in apes so the immune system, the human immune system attacks it which can cause a permanent allergy to the compound so every red meat. You have an allergic reaction, but there is at least one other allergy you can catch via an animal. Which one of these is it? Number? One people living in a rodent infested house can develop an allergy to hotdogs due to a relatively large proportion of rodent parts in each Weiner. Children aren't type of animal. If you think about it and parents who clean their children's pacifies by putting them in their own mouths have been known to develop an allergic reaction to their own children's not and saliva. or Three. People who spent a lot of quality time with their cats can develop a severe pork. Due to similar compounds excreted by both gross animals. Sam. You gotTA. Explain to me why you just call it a category. Looking at endurable cat, right behind on your beanbag Gypsies. She? She poops in your house just on a box and then in my. You've been water and flush down the toilet and she poops in a box and it just sits there. They're disgusting so okay before we before we get any deeper. Let's talk about what we've got here. We've got three facts. One rodent exposure can lead you to hot dog allergies. and. We'll talk a little bit more about why that isn't a second parents. Cleaning pacifies with their mouths can become allergic to their. Kids Spit and Snot. or three cat exposure can lead to pork allergies. Because of what was it because of? Because they both just are kindest, the same inside or something. It doesn't have anything to do with the poop in the box and the dust, though does it. Does it okay. All right I see yeah good foot. Play your hand. So what's what's move back to rodent exposure? Though so the the reason for rodent exposure? Making your to dogs is because there's a relatively high percentage of rodent rodent parts hotdogs. Relatively high percentage what is? Compared to other foods. He got a few more rats in there. Okay I. You like fifty one percent of my software. I don't think that would be like a legal amount, but no now more than in like a steak. Yeah, that makes sense because like you have those big. Probably industrial meat grinders and rats are scurrying around inevitably and one falls. You got. Your hot dog Do Bad. It's too bad really, and then we've got parents cleaning pacifier with their mouths in. They could become allergic to their own kids. Speedy Snot. Did you orange pacifier in your mouth ever? No, but I did have him. Give me big wet kisses. Why would you put a pacifier in your mouth allows? Here why would you yeah you're like? This pacifier is dirty. I know what to do. Well. I can see if you drop it on the ground. You think I should clean this off with my mouth because I can protect my own body, but my child needs I. Don't know. Well, thinking so nearby, also I don I must be a bad parent because my thought is. This child is growing. He's got so much going for him. I'm sure he'll be fine. I am in decline I. have all kinds of problems. I can't expose myself to these things I just don't have enough information about the pig in cat one. I. Feel like Sam is being cagey about it. I'm not going to anything else out about it. I'm GonNa Guess Picking Cat. 'cause I WANNA. Learn more about it I I'm GONNA. Go with the parents allergic to children's saliva. I am also going to go with parents allergic to children's saliva. The other two seem very far fetched to me all right cast your vote on twitter now. Our. Dan's. Twitter. Time and tangents. That's how I get to it so. Back here's real answer. The Pork Cat Syndrome is a reality. Show what? It's a fairly rare allergy that develops and people that live in households with a ton of cats, and they develop an allergic reaction to the blood albumin. That cats have an I. Don't really know, get this. Thought It was far fetched. Because how do you get cat blood in you? The and well I. Mean people have their cats coming? I couldn't figure out, and maybe you can answer this. If 'cause it seems like the allergy that you you develop allergy to the albumin, and then that has a bad reaction to albumin pork products, so does that mean that they're really similar or that? They're really different and something weird happens. There's similar okay, so you eat the bark bellyache. I guess if your cat, you would also get a belly. Seems so far fetched. 'cause I just like it's meet I. Never Get cat meat in me. No, and it's not, it's not. It's not like beef or red meat I may be. Cats are white meat. I don't know. It's just port and it's mostly just in Europe but six American cases are reported twenty eleven, and those are the first American cases ever. And if he's hanging out with cats, it goes away eventually in most, but why would you who needs poor? Yeah? So then the people living in Ronin infested home hotdog, one people like to say the hot dogs are full of like lots of girls stuff, but I was reading articles about it about how the girls say really weren't a lot of them are just like? Oh, they have like pig intestines and pig snouts in them which Ghana really care. That seems like an acceptable thing to have in your hot yeah. It's always like this contains other muscles besides the ones we usually. Like well good. Good I'm glad someone's eating. Gill variety in your diet, so the hot Docs contain mystery meat thing seemed to me to be a overblown I couldn't find much about it, but it. There are people who are allergic to dogs, not because of mice, but because of a Netto seed which is a natural dye. That makes hot.

"All right. So now we're GONNA talk about food allergies versus intolerances and These bullets are taken from allergies. So a food allergy the immune system to food that is typically harmless but in an intolerance the immune system is not involved with the response in a food allergy The immune system creates allergic antibody also known as GE to take up to try to get the food out of the body but in food intolerances. There's just a problem digesting the suit With an allergy you can develop even if the food has been eaten frequently in the past. Though this is unusual and food intolerances. The response is not as dangerous as more reaction in an allergy. Also there are some immunologically. Immune the lodge Immunologically driven reactions. The food is non Ge mediated reaction. These reactions are not related to Antibodies examples reactions which occur in the Safa gifts and another example is protein induced syndrome. Also known Fries but with pink that have in our our food allergies in growth so to kids with food allergies says. Why are there so many more kids with allergies? Now than when I was a kid. She'd allergies are on the rise but no one knows why. The percentage of children with a food allergy has increased by about fifty percent between nineteen ninety seven and two thousand eleven one and thirteen children the US now food allergy around fifteen million people in the US have a few dollars. Okay now worried about legal which is kind of sort of related. It's not like the most related but it's still there it makes sense You may not know this but everyone who has dollars or the relatives should know how to read labels. I encourage you political able right now to check it out. Do you see the bottom where it says stuffing bold messages. It may say something like may contain tree nuts or contains milk and soy. Maybe it'll say processing facility with peanuts and tree nuts or it may even say processed on equipment with peanuts and nuts these are also include a these also include other allergens but they are only required to include the top eight which we already said. Are Egg fish station or shellfish tree. Not Sweet peanuts and soybeans actually sesame on my brothers alerted to ninth one so we have to search entirely legal. It's kind of annoying but I mean it's good to be thorough. But what do these labels really meet the May contain Lee will is really annoying and FDA recommends using recommends against using asleep will for our family. We avoid these items. Because it's just better to be safe than sorry items. Like eminem is continuously that they may contain peanuts for facility on basically the facility label means that in general the place that they manufactured item. There are the allergens listed but it isn't a separate area and there should be no cross contamination however it is possible some family stay away from these but we take the various small risk He's never had a problem with these items before for example kit. Kat is in a facility with peanuts. Equipment.

"Yeah so those are my two but but Rosie is an interesting one because I think he did pretty well in Boston coming off the bench if he was to return to that role I wonder if he would accept it because he did. I think he could be more successful. And I think Charlotte probably would like to switch that up myself. So we'll see their their obtain. The Minnesota Timberwolves. It sort of feels like it's groundhog day. United you know they have a couple of good performances. You think maybe there okay then I just lose like five in a row and you're like not rather have terriers era demonstrator. Talk asking the Terry. Give me a scary Terry cool nickname. I think he's been fine playing with another guy. I ball handle their. They're playing fine together. Dennis shoot. It doesn't seem to play Nice Young. He's accepting yeah Israel coming off the bench. He's he's actually pretty productive. Casey I see I see the considering Russell. Westbrook is in there and he's still coming off. The bench is doing pretty well. He's happy for now. You never or no what about you. trae good on the Lakers. Getting Danny Green at kind of the last second. He was waiting to see where Leonard ended up signing signed a two year. Deal with the Lakers. About fifteen million apiece for both years two years thirty million that is But he's shooting only thirty six percent right now. But he's got the championship pedigree from the Spurs and the Raptors. He just another option on the wing for the Lakers. Which means Lebron once again doesn't have to guard a massive perimeter? Threats saves his body a little bit more. And it gives the Lakers chance you can say. Maybe Avery Bradley has tonight note. Maybe Danny Green has it going tonight. Maybe Casey P. has it going tonight. Note you need a Lotta guys if you're GONNA go deep into the playoffs so smart one. Getting Danny Green as for disappointing to Masada Ron Ski and thaddeus. Young have had zero impact for the balls. I mean they're using fatty s young wrong. They have him coming off the bench a sixth man role which is what he was expecting. But that's not the guy who's really going to carry you as a score. He should be he should somehow involved. I do think in the closing line-up just because he's a veteran and who maybe would help them not blow every single fourth quarter lead they got solder and ski. Just doesn't really do anything. He's just kind of out there passing the ball and then never gets it back. Yeah and we were. You're right I was high on both of these guys. Being little additions to the Bulls to the young Bulls Yeah Princeton vets in there. But everything that the Bulls need. Yeah that's has Haven't yet has not worked out all right next question. Here I know dunkers I wonder why. NBA players removed the insoles of their shoes. When they give out there sneakers acres? I saw a video of Lebron and Yoenis and that they remove the insoles off their shoes before giving it to a fan. That is from Mako or Marco. Oh from the Philippines. People have been saying this thing is well. How customer Thaad IX? That's got to be at right They need those. It's it's not just a regular insole you find in a basketball shoe. These are custom custom pieces of equipment for these guys to help them with their gate. Help them with their knees. Their wrinkle their hips their backs but owns. Couldn't they have like a million pairs of these as well. I mean I guess the point is who cares you giving away the shoes. Don't you have a million of these insults. You could. Yeah Yeah I mean they're more expensive. You're talking five hundred bucks a pair of orthotics but I think Lebron could probably afford eighty two pairs of five hundred dollars orthotics. But it's got to go. We'll get a molded. You Ain't got order them. They can't go to the back in the equipment managers like hey. Here's your shoes. Hear your thoughts. Just it's not the same right. You know five hundred dollars really costs. Yeah but they should last you for a long time supposed to last for life. That's why they're keeping them they're like indestructible. Though CERTA takes the shine off of basketball shoes. If the players are using customer thought is right. I mean in theory you should be able to wear any kind of shoe you wear loafers out there. Now that would be a look. Lebron Apparel Lopez. That's a little a little extreme extreme. Jd but no. I know what you mean. commutes an interesting point but those orthotics also custom to the shoe as well. They're all trimmed up so they fit perfectly in the shoe like that insole. Does anybody have this back home whereas orthotics all the time and I would rather just have bad feet. Yeah I had them when I was when I was in the service industry be bad fatal big little fake well. That's the thing my feet are so small. They don't make a million dollars to get a pair of tiny tiny tics. So you're you're saying when you were in services to your standing standing all the time and just so so I got I got them but then I found that I was too dependent on them. You know like I wouldn't wear a pair shoes. I couldn't wear like flip-flop in I just decided Eh to get rid of him and just strengthen my feet by walking around fascinating I worked in the factory and you would stand up the one station for your whole Shit Shit. You're always standing. They would sometimes give you that. Really Cool Matt to stand. uh-huh feels great like you're doing dishes yes SORTA. Yeah exactly but I got so used to do it that I had to buy a second one in everywhere. I walked down to your feet. Couple snow shoes. Dan Cut them out to the size of the slip. Them right in there actually ACA who stands the most what profession like a service industry does stay in a factory generally stands you know Palace Guard Dang. How long are their ships? They're not that it's a great question. Short Shit like a hockey player who I had never thought about their profession having having to stand a lot until he told me a barber hairdresser. Yeah it's a lot of standing. I never really crossed my mind because it came up Shot at the Jason uh-huh Barbara who moved to L.. A. To come here We have a lot of whealy seats though as well done real around I mean I mean they sit while they cut but then they will from side to side like Barbara sitting down. I know what you mean yeah. I'm sure it's happened when they're getting down a little. Oh close but I think they're standing for the most part most of it but I get the little thing when they need to get right in there all right. I think they're standing a lot told they stand a lot and his feet hurt. Yeah not allowed to sit down but then they got good shift work too. Don't they have a little high chair. I care here. They have behind their butts. Then they kind of just let to lay their bussan. I not a not a rule at always reaching back would be crabby at all. That's the way he got the hook. But yeah you're right that's true the hook to bring all the stuff even the spinning ball feels like they're gonna read quite a distance because right a lot of Tommy John Surgeries amongst workers throwing it down in the next expression here. I was recently watching. A Steve. Nash highlight mix was reminded of how many nutmeg he pulled off in his career. Almost every third highlight is Nash. Drop in a dime right beneath some poor sap's beans. The nutmeg is one of my favorite things done on a basketball court. But I don't get why isn't counted as a stack. We beneath some poor SAP's beings we have player tracking and now to know how many miles of dude runs ends in a season but nobody's keeping track of legs anyway. My question aside from wedgies `leggies in pigeons which Informal Statistic Dhia Wish. NBA score keepers. Tallied yours in gene brown. Guess he's talking compost. Shout out my nitrogen brother Dan. It's a great. It's a great great email beneath some poor sap's beans. That's what enough meg really is. He's right we should be counting mix and I get excited every time. We'll see all cool always do prefer the assist nutmeg or the dribble continuing dribble sort of nutmeg. You know what I mean to get around a guy. I'm find find with both of them as long as it's going through some poor sap's being the key to me is that it's got to be a one bouncer. I prefer it like when you guys dribbling. He he dribbles through his Through the beans and pops up right away. I don't like it when the ball's bouncing on the ground and they recover it also say on Nutmeg Pass. I wanted to go straight through one bounce as much as the next guy that's true you don't want it like bowling right right. Yeah okay well what else then would you want to be tracked. We track wreck half court touches. We track post touches. We need to track human touches. There was that studying not too long ago that teams who interact act with each other high five. Each other are more successful both as a team and individual Steve Nationals actually. Mvp of being nice to his teammates. The UH the researchers studied twelve different kinds of human touch high. Fives fist bumps chest. bumps leaving shoulder bumps chest punches chest chest jump. Ahead slaps had grabs low. Fives high tens four hugs half. Hugs and team huddles. I would like to see the full statistics every game. Same correlates perfectly. You know you're like well. Maybe we should be punching each other in the chest. A little bit more gets more ws here how would you would you track. Interactions between the bench players. When they're on the bench for has to sort of just be encored player on the court wonder who would lead the league right now now in human interaction? Jeez I don't know man I would have thought Kevin Gone. That would have been yeah. He's a good one yeah he he was always out there. DAPPLING UP Everybody Kevin. Garnett would have been a wicked volleyball player. Because volleyball players lead all sports in this. Yeah human every we single point. That team comes together and dumps it up. I love that. That's a good point. Yeah I don't know about the bucks. Were doing a lot of touching pre-game wrestling routine. I think I would say a guy who gets out a lot to get picked up a lot. Young skits felt a lot. Yeah maybe it's the bucks that's a good one. I liked that we should. We should track that. I've got another one glasses. Tough to say isn't it. Glass Cysts is what I'm doing is I am jamming in class and assists together. We've talked about this in the past before. But the the dime using the backboard as sort of as a six man out there which we tracking these and not just not just talking about like a guy's trailing like draymond green the other day like chuck it up off the backboard that would be assist instead. It was a KLA server. Gaza concern over patchy very catchy. Glimpse Lenovo Computer Right now..

"They're not incredible players. They're both kind of just solid starter guys but look there were drafted one right. After another. They came identical twins with identical tattoos. They both struggled at first on their teams traded so that they could play together where they both excelled then they got the first ever joint contract. Here's some money you guys figure out who makes you both traded traded before the extension even really kicked in. Because there are some off-court drama Markif went to Washington and then became part of the rivalry with the Celtics where they were like the funeral. General game that whole kind of was a big moment in the league for a little bit. Marcus went to Detroit then. He was good with Boston after the rivalry was over with Markeith. Now he's the best player you're on the next where he smacked a guy on the face during a preseason game the crazy part now. Markeith is a piston looking like his brother wearing a different uniform form number I saw them. I saw him on the court Markeith last night against the wizards and I was like what is going on. Here they should not be allowed to play under for Senate agree flight time every time I have to go wait. Is that marquee for Marcus. I do it every time but these guys are great. You get them on your team and your team is going to instantly instantly become a tougher team. It's doing bar three. It makes you tougher getting a Morris Brother your team is gonNA get in fights. They're solid but we're not gonNA talk about him twenty years from now except for the the fact that there were these two identical twins and they got this crazy contract but they have given us a lot of content over the years. So that's a good one great. Pick my favorite. I mean unsung hero. Hero that I don't think we'll ever make an all star team or mold. NBA though he would tell me to go. Stick that up my ass. Because he's always betting on himself. Fred van Vliet Freddie I mean for me as a raptors fan. I Never GonNa forget him going off in some finals games. When especially two rounds prior we were like get them off off the floor? He can't play versus the sixers. And then you know he catches fire after the birth of his son and It's was lights out from there. You ever fourteen points per game came off the bench in the finals. Against the warriors shot forty percent from three. He was awesome. Key brand voted him MVP So vanfleet will always have a place in my heart. I al also sort of along the lines of Boris the Patty Mills to Patty Mills played so much longer than I always think he has. He's like eleven year vet right. Now he got one title with the Spurs to. It's just a you know a fun gotta route four and I think that's a lumped into the success. He's had recently to with the Ozzy's the booms like that. I'm sure as well but he's going to be fun remember it he's not making all star all NBA. You have anyone to squeeze in. He's been a longtime longtime fan of mine and this gentleman fan of mine. I've been you know what he is a fan of mine. We met in two thousand eleven and this email was referencing a night in two thousand eleven when I met Wesley Matthews and we had an awkward encounter at the airport. And since then I mean I love him before then when Jerry Sloan was playing him hard rook rook and robots. Next question from Ethan sub. Dinky can we get some talk. What's up thanks? Man's been Bolland and seems to be a perfect trade piece for contending team that needs shooting Philadelphia. Maybe not to mention Burton's on pace to be the third player in NBA history to make three hundred. Three's and a season wow keep up the excellent content. No when does better than you. That's from Ethan `Davis Bertans hot name right now in the NBA twitter. I feel like we got this email. I affiliate we've gotten another one. There's been a lot of tweets of the last couple of days talk about Devas Bertone's talking about Novice Burton's. I mean he's playing very very well. He's averaging fifteen points per game on the lowly wizards shooting forty six percent from three a whole lot of attempts. He's Latvian Lazy. So let's talk about. I mean good. I'm happy I'm happy. He's still young. Well he's he's an older for year player. Yeah He's twenty seven twenty six. Yeah Baby Twenty seven now but yeah he says twenty seven now will actually I saw. When did he turn November twelfth? Nineteen ninety-two thank you. Well sorry remember. Twelve twenty nine. So here's twenty six a month ago. Okay yeah sorry we're talking. About how old is he. He's he's He's found a harm there in Washington. Because I I'm trying to find he I think he was part of the reason. The Spurs traded him was to get Marcus Morris within. What's right? Yeah reneged on these deal in the first place because he seemed like a classic spur totally some European no one's ever heard of and we're just coming out and develop into a star player and he's kind of grown into that that SORTA stopped play but for the Washington Wizards now. Why would the wizards won a trade them? I mean because that's what I keep telling out there like why what are the what doesn't make any sense to me now. No they should not train them. They should keep him. He is a good fit next to be John. Welcomes back if you still going to be a member of the wizards he'll be a perfect fit. The guys who can shoot and can shoot from basically anywhere. That's a valuable player. And it makes you think why in the world did the spurs trade him away. Why did they want like Marcus Morris? More I can't believe that that happened. This does this guy seems like a classic spur he has Klay Thompson game the way he moves and the way he gets his shots but he's as tall as Kevin Durant. I'm not saying he's as good as either of those guys. That's what it looks like. Like the way he moves around on the court you know how sometimes take shots with his feet not facing the right way. He has zero conscience He's very fun to watch. Stay in Washington. WHAT IF THEY WANNA tear it down to some degree? I don't know what their way out of the playoff picture. Why not capitalize on burt? Tons value question. What I do but isn't I mean the value? It's a draft pick. That's that's where I'm like. What are you? Are you really going to get back. Something more valuable than what he's giving you as a shooter as crazy stretch guy if like wall was practicing before the game last night penalty saw that on whatever. He's not this year but walls their bills there. I'M GONNA WANNA shoot early. trae said they're gonNA I mean they had they have wall and beal. You're in the Eastern conference offers. You A playoff team. I think. And then you're hoping like really takes it to the next level and stuff In his growth. I don't yeah I guess you're right. I guess what are you. You gotta get out link. Good back yeah. But he's the type of player you could plug and play On a Lotta rosters in Bonn's happy. We're talking about the Latvian laser great nickname. What about his brother Darris Bertans? He's not coming over a cup of coffee. Offi with the PELS. Last season totally forgot about the Latvian lot being alive. Now what would you say. used to going to bed at nine pm every night because he's thirty and ninety nine days man. Cool Story Bro. Next question hey there no drinkers and dumpers. My question is which traders signing was the biggest steal of the season which has been the most disappointing for me. The most disappointing has to be Mike Conley with the jess the biggest steal might be TJ warrant. He was packaged. Page with the second round. Pick as a salary dump. And he's been lighting it up with the Pacers. That's from Dave in Indiana so take it either way. I'M GONNA go disappointing. Yeah well I mean I would double down Mike Conley being pretty damn disappointing as a huge Conley Fan and being excited to what the jazz could do here adding some offense to to a wicked defense on. It's just he hasn't been able to score. Look quite frankly bad. I mean I still everybody's pretty convinced will turn around here and you'll get on a stretch and start knocking down some threes and score and getting the floater going but right now does pointing I mean the entire jazz team has been so yeah within their as for a steel I like the kings getting rashawn homes for a very very cheap two years ten million dollar deal. He's playing really well for them. twelve points per game nearly eight and a half boards. He shoot sixty eight percent from the floor. He knows what he's good at and he sticks to it. He's not like Willie Cauley Steiner suddenly just trying to take jumpers and you're like Willy Willy. Don't do that. But homes is top five. In effective field. Goal percentage true shooting percentage offensive rating. This damn good. He plays some. DMV saw them against the thunder. Thunder got switched onto a Chris Paul in in basically the final possession of the game. Damn good job stand in front of them and challenging the shot so homes. I hadn't written down to because also the expectations were super low with Marvin Bagley. Starting most likely Dwayne Denman signing three for forty forty million dollar deal before the season is over. Sean Holmes was I don't know their fourth big man something like that. So yeah he's been great as a starter for them keeping them in that playoff picture as far as signing. I like the box. Getting Malcolm broke. Excuse me the Pacers Getting Malcolm Brogdon from the box and a sign and trade. There they gave up a A couple of draft picks in order to get it but he's been great and I think the bucks despite the fact they've got an incredible record have missed him at times but I think he's I think he's living up to that deal and he's a very solid play. He's probably not GonNa make the All star team but I think he could very well make an all star team the life of this deal. I think that's sort of projection. He's on the just provides a solid handful them which what he did in Milwaukee so I think he's been good a guy twenty twenty million dollars per year player. That's for these food right now. For what goes getting a Muzak Levine's getting the same you know and I think twenty million mean. These days is not really that much to be honest at a time. I know it's not really I mean you look at that. I think you can try that one. No I mm agree with you that there are many other guys that make more money than Brogdon where I would much prefer to have. No can broaden. Yeah you're right but yeah okay. He's been impressive. Show actually has completely shut me up. I didn't think Bucks well that's the thing that bugs haven't missed them at all so they haven't they might come play but they have not missed a mental only have have it. I wouldn't say I wouldn't say I think at times. I think at times and I sit that. Despite their record I think at times there was an adjustment period early on and they've gotten over it but they plays his evil goatee. He's yeah he's better than you look as I don't I don't either. I don't like it on. I like the president with any no not well you know I was GonNa say he has shut me up. I didn't think he'd play as well as he has. So early for the Pacers I e at especially carrying that team without Victor Oladipo for good chunk of it I was I was definitely wrong. so He's worth every penny of this twenty million dollars. Yeah as far as the tough on a worsening like it's it's not the worst because this guy feels like he's been playing worse and he's numbers suggest in Charlotte as Terry Rozier. He's actually he's putting up decent number sixteen points a game four and a half assists a game forty percent from the field and from three point range but it feels like devante. Graham is overshadowed right away she is but still bad as it feels that Rosie has been playing there in Charlotte like he's picked it up. Yeah actually picked it up since devante. Graham has jumped into the starting lineup with them. which is kind of walkers?.

"Maybe you're hitting you're going for the home run shot here you know. Bring it back but I think he's doing that because because again it's like this might be the best. Look we're going to get here and like if you had better talent around him. I don't think he's a selfish player by any means I mean he's obviously top five in the league in assists per game so that's something right there with subpar talent. So he gets Ya. This is ridiculous. It was always ridiculous with booker. Now I guess it is happening with feels it's like. Oh yeah well. Somebody's got put up twenty eight nine or whatever like no there's all there's other garbage teams and they don't have guys doing that because the guys aren't on not superstar type of level. These guys are great players when they get better town around them they then get to show that to the more national audience which is awesome. He's increased. He's increased everything across the board. His field goal attempts is percentages is three point. Attempts is rebounds is assist. Everything is happy. And he's averaging twenty twenty seven point a game which I don't know it's probably bad tenth. The league this season sixth six okay. So he's I mean he. He's improving his numbers there but he doesn't have a lot of support a random but considering how many offensive possessions run through him. He's not like just chunking away now. Percentages are good. I think you're getting a good performance out of a guy who doesn't have have a whole lot of support and if these other guys Andre Hunter and camera nation and John Collins will continue to improve the hooks will be better but it takes time seeing seeing this question honestly makes me think maybe we should talk about Bradley beal more. He's right there with trae young scoring. He has an all-star pedigree. The Wizards are better than anybody. Thought they would be. And I don't know that that they've actually played a game on TV at this year. I haven't seen a single highlight Bradley. Beal is flying completely under the radar. Despite averaging being top scorer trae young is but you got to win games for people to talk about you. We're talking about trae young a lot more than Bradley beal. That's for sure I mean if John Collins doesn't get suspended I think. The hawks are much better than six. Twenty anyone as a recording this. I think they're they're help. They're probably the night scene. Let's say in the east so then by default. We're like Oh hawks walks you know. They made the jump here there in the playoff race early on. I think that would have been happening. That was really really unfortunate for the hawks growth. He's going back accidents. Let's good and there's still tons of time and they could you know win four games in a row and suddenly they're right there in ninth or something like that but it just was a bummer for trae. That's why I think you're seeing this frustration ration- of course like what are we doing here. But he's twenty one for a point guard at that age to still have this impact on these games. Offensively is something something to set up teammates and stuff like that so yeah. It's just a bit of a wasted half a season. I guess most still. It's it's it's pretty impressive. What both of these guys are doing in Luca and trae? It's just a matter to have more success right now is probably learning some stuff here. You know being the Solo Guy Being a guy who has to help others outlook assists and take these fourth-quarter shots and have double teams running at him. And the entire time so I don't know if it's I wasted half the season but in terms of their production production. Yeah there's a big drop off after John Collins on this roster that's just the way it is yeah so without John Collins. It's it's bad named the Third Best Hawk. Indiana hunter might be a player. One day maybe members decent player Kevin hurt her might be great one day cameras might be great one day. But you're asking Jabari Parker to be way better than he was. I mean there's just there's not. The answer is generally on most nights. None of those guys you just listed it is it's been Jabari. It's been incredibly Vince. Carter even Alex Len interest in in half the Hawks Games. That's those guys have been the the second best player on some nights and that's just not gonNA do. It's an interesting question. Data me though you think. The hawks would have twice as many wins now. If they just look back John Collins they'll they'll be playing all these guys major minutes. I think they'd have ten wins. When I was getting that I do? I mean they're getting smoked. That's the thing. The hawks have gotten beat pretty bad and a lot of these is games. Unfortunately and I mean trey songz putting up crazy numbers. I don't know exactly. He's one of them. What John Collins? I always not even like a juggernaut on that in turn around with their best bigs defensively. I think you'd be helping. I think it's it's soured in Atlanta after it started. Even when John Collins went down things were looking at all right. There are some close games there that they lost and now it's bad next question. He No dunkers. When I thirdly talk about not having a team due to being an ozzy like myself it reminded me of how I chose mine back in twenty ten? I wanted to follow a team that was under the radar not flashy flashy but had a good basketball culture and potential. I landed on the Pacers and never turned back. What's more I love a bargain more than anyone read? I am cheap. He wrote that their roster is full of bargain pickups like Tj warn my question what team represents you guys put aside your really agencies if you can and find a team that best represents you. That's from Justin. Where's he from Ozzy in Sweden? Weird travel don't you sure do. Yeah I think that's fun like okay. Obviously trae a Bulls Fan Pasini Raptors fans but if but if you had to put those allegiances to the side is there a team that represents you and why I'm the Houston Rockets. Why all offense? No defence aw they hate referees they like getting dressed up for games and they like science. I'm clearly a Houston Rockets. Their star is also a guy with a massive nerd and this one was actually pretty easy for for me. I tried to think of anybody else. Besides the rockets they don't necessarily want to be the rockets. But I think I am. I actually thought it was easy for myself too. I play fast when and I play. I like to think some decent perimeter defense I try on defense plan. Our pickup runs so by default. I think I'm the bucks because they lead the League in pace and they're one of the best defense in the league and then I started thinking about it next level one of my best friends. He's a great guy one of my other best friends. He's a silly told dude with curly early hair. One of my other best friend is white guy that just shoot three pointers tasio robin and your couch. Okay yeah I thought it I was going to be Ilias over the corporate with your kisses so yeah I guess I'm the box and their cream said well. Oh you too. Well I think for me it would have to be a team that is not flashy like the fundamentals of the game. Yes I had a playoff af whose name nickname was the big fundamental. I like the tradition. The Spurs really changed too much of a uniform or anything else they do so. I think it's got to be the San Antonio any icebergs texas-rival they try. Do you think you're struggling this year. you the track also in a similar vein I'm the warriors my best years are behind me riddled by injuries. So I'm starting from square one just keeping it simple. Try to fight again but all of a sudden I'll put together you get a little draft pick. Maybe a little bonus in my pocket GonNa be in front of the Pack Will Be a Well oiled machine very soon discovers expensive though tosses well worse like expensive thing to get along aaa today. I did all right next one here on the last beach stepping podcast. You guys talk about stars in the two thousands who have been forgotten my the question though which current NBA stars the Casual Fan in twenty thirty. Not Remember I'll put money on no-one remembering players like Andre Drummond or Evan -FORNIA in ten years ears turn up love you guys awesome. That's met 'EM I don't know about the Drummond Edition. Hear people forgetting about Drummond. Because he's going to have like stupid rebounding numbers and that might help his chances of like man not everybody loves everybody. Come on come on Guy I like this. I like that part of the email I haven't for new too easy ever for news about it. We had this. We had a topic. a couple of weeks ago. We're talking about players that are being overlooked this year in the present isn't of course he's going to be on that one. That was great. I'm saying I disagree with you. GotTa really got to reach former. all-star picking all star for okay. I got one. It's it's not a it's going to be well in addition for me. It's going to be Vuckovich. Same I mean guys an all-star these career averages are fifteen and ten career Harir. That's pretty damn good but I think he's going to be easily forgotten something. Something tells me well he doesn't have any real highlights. It's no playoff success. He's just play. Yeah yeah easily forgettable lamarcus Aldridge for me. That's take down. He's going into the hall of fame. You can lock that in seven time all star five time all NBA. He's going to have twenty thousand career points. His best a playoff performance was two thousand sixteen. Seventeen went to the western conference finals when Kobe was still Ballin as we know how that turned out the following on ZAS footing. And then it was all over with the Spurs. There's but lamarcus Aldridge like. He's just been chugging along chugging along chugging along it's GonNa be a long highlight tape of nineteen foot jumpers and everyone's GonNa say lamarcus Aldridge made seven all star teams. He did but even making the hall of fame is going to be on the level of a lot of guys in the hall of saying that nobody talks about totally true. When's the last time you had a conversation about Nate Thurmond Yeah I brought up Alex English when I was looking at a ball spin off the glass the other day but that's the only time he really comes up. It's it's not an insult he's great player. lamarcus Aldridge is a great player there in the hall. I had aldridge down as well. I think he will go to the hall. But there's cheating wise in terms of current star. Chris Middleton will be forgotten because he's already forgotten. Currently Paul millsap will be forgotten because he's already forgotten current lunatic But I think reaching a little bit I think demarcus cousins will be pretty forgotten. Because don't tell that Steve Kirby Just texted me. I can't believe that this episode yet numbers no playoff performances. Really Yep injuries I guess people talk about What else would they talk hill? Big Big numbers. I mean his best case will be people go in all man if he doesn't get injured the big. What if you we knew with other players because he did have obviously great numbers just didn't have a lot of teams took two for most of this is just doesn't stand out fun question? Great One matt next one of a storytime hear.

"Powerful tool to combat allergies or guest is Dr David Peden, the Harry s Andrews distinguished professor of pediatrics at the university of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Peden is also senior associate dean for translational research, and chief of the division of allergy immunology and Rheumatology in the department of pediatrics. In addition, he's director of the center for environmental medicine as my end lung biology. Now, I am wondering what you can do about the environment that you're exposed to that might help control your allergies. So there's a lot of important things that, that one can do in terms of the indoor environment. It sounds incredibly tried and everyone's heard it, but his absolutely true tobacco smoke is a pro allergic event is not just an irritant. There's pretty clear data that, you know, that exposure tobacco smoke makes you more likely to make an immune response. That's an allergic, immune cells nobody should be smoking in the house, nobody should be smoking in the house, if you're really serious about that nobody should be smoking at all period. But at least nobody should be smoking in the house that, you know, I would agree with that other things beyond that many allergies already Luda to our water sensitive or they specially humidity. So in the south in a humid environment, dehumidification or in the summer air conditioning. I mean air conditioning was actually invented to be dehumidifier. Fire, and so you do dry the air, generally, we'd like a we recommend people try to keep the relative humidity, their homes, if you have indoor allergens and forty to fifty percent no higher than that. And you can get, you know, you can get a monitor, you know, you can get sensors from Home Depot that actually can tell you what relative humidity is so you can actually look at a target, and try and do those things carpeting is problematic, because it traps stuff that doesn't mean you shouldn't have carpeting, you should just know that. And then make decisions appropriately, if you have a basement carpet on a on a cement basement floor is it is a recipe to have an allergen Stu living in your basement, and I wouldn't do that. So put some other kind of flooring down on that slam other other kind of flooring. And likewise hardwood, linoleum has have different characteristics pets intriguingly. There's a there's a mix early exposure, pets seems to be pretty helpful in preventing allergy clearly, if you are, if you become sensitized to. I'm going to pick a species just because if you become allergic to cats and you're clearly sensitized, you know, you just need to understand that having a cat in your environment is going to be problematic for you. I'm not saying you should've not remove the cap, but that's an environmental thing. You can you can dress now in your position as director of the center for environmental medicine asthma, and lung biology. You are concerned about people's environments, and there is a place in many people's homes. That is just a mess in that is there crawlspace you alluded to the basement as well. And so if you have carpet in your basement on that slab, or you have a crawlspace that collects moisture in the summer, you've got mildew, you've got moult. How do you deal with that? Well, first of all, mildew, mold are today, she's in somewhat problematic. But getting to the cross based directly, it's actually, one of the straight for things to do this, actually. Pretty helpful is to make sure that you have a vapor shield of the plastic sheeting, that's, that's on the bottom, and make sure you actually have that make sure intact. And if you haven't looked at your crawlspace and a few years, you actually should have the you'll yo and And. I. I can understand not wanting to go to your crawlspace Ray often, but the ceiling the crawlspace, but soon, the crawlspace is really an and actually the cross base will en- houses words across bass will can modulate to humidity the rest of the house. So your air conditioning is likely going to be more effective, if you use the right vapor protection, so that your crawlspaces as dry as possible. It doesn't mean it's going to be Super Dry, but what you don't want again. The most direct things that they'll things keep an uncluttered people store bunch of stuff there to be quite Frank, there, other intrusions, including animal intrusion, so making sure that the that the barriers of the crawlspace are adequate. So you don't have too many animals stations, because you because you don't want allergens in addition to the, to the mold mildew and be there during the day, you might actually let it air out if you're tended to this, frankly, I had a house with a call space, and I was not attentive to it and the way I'm describing, but the vaber show, was definitely there. Doc, repeating some people tell us that they find it helpful to rinse out their nasal passages with a saline solution. They use any pint or they use a device, call new mid, which I think, is a sort of super squatter is this useful? Yes. Actually, I think we have patients that use it. And the notion is, is that either the allergen itself or the inflammatory residue driven by that you, you rinse it out. And you actually Lage out the nose and for many people as an immediate relief and they feel a lot better. I mean, in many ways as an extension of, you know, as analogous to the FDA approve use of hypersonic sailing to treat cystic fibrosis, the idea is that if you can do things to wash out an airway or make the airway more less viscous, and you can clear the out, you'll be better Edison ice non medicine away, the, the caveats, I would use don't do too often, you know once or. Twice a day is plenty much more. You don't wanna get nearest defect. And if you're using an Pont clean his just like clean, your CPAP machine, or something else, you know. Soap and water. If you wanted to hydro squash side, and then dried out one of the questions that fruit frequently comes up as well. Can I use my tap water to make this saline solution? Or do I need to use some sort of steroid, or, or do I need to buy saline at the pharmacy if I'm going to use some kind of saline solution? What's, what's the safest and best way to approach that tap water is great drink? Our GI tract is, is for trivial amounts of materials is well equipped to deal with stuff. Well water the same way, but for something like this. And certainly, if you know, for people who using hypersonic for the long I would use pharmaceutical grade sailing. Dave peden. What advice do you have as we move into the allergy season? What can people do? Well, first of all, I think be aware of when you have symptoms. If you have symptoms, don't struggle them for days. You know, call a provider, if you wish to try over the counter Anna histamine, or even a nasal spray. I think that's perfectly fine. But if you're going, if you're not getting relief fairly soon talk, your physician, touch your primary care physician or ask for referral to analogize so you can get sorted out. What the issue is one to another key point for pollens Hollins like the morning. So if you're an outdoor exerciser, you're probably better to exercise in the afternoon, because the pollens attend to be released today, so they, they can take advantage of the sun born movement of air to spread and that, that's how the other plants pollinated. The downside is that air, pollutants tend to be worse than the afternoon. But if you're major immediate problem is, you know, sneezing as in very clue associated trees might vice would be exercise indoors in the morning or wait until the afternoon. You're somewhat better off that during that time end take a shower. Whoa. Schoff all that pollen. Why would definitely have a clean room where particularly for your kids that are out rolled around the grass or doing this thing, I would change clothes, you know, as you get in, and then shower and then, you know, put those clothes into either wash them or in a combined space until you wash them? Just don't confine them to on. Dave peden. Thank you so much for talking with us on the people sperm. Thanks again. For having me, you've been listening to Dr David Peden. He is the Harry s Andrews distinguished professor of pediatrics and senior associate dean for translational research at the university of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He's chief of the division of allergy immunology and Rheumatology in the department of pediatrics. And he's director of the center for environmental medicine asthma, and lung biology for further advice on managing seasonal allergies without drugs. We turn now to Dr Tarani low dog. She is an internationally recognized expert in the fields of integrative medicine dietary supplements herbal medicine and women's health, her latest book, is fortify, your life, your guide to vitamins, minerals, and Moore. She offers a free video course in herbal medicine making at W W. W dot medicine lodge ranch dot com. Dr low dog I can always tell when allergy season is right around the corner because there are all kinds of commercials for an a histamine 's like Allegra, sir tech claritin's is out. And then there's the, the sprays like flowness it's like there's this war between the competing pharma companies for the domination of the allergy market. What else can people do besides take an antihistamine or a corticosteroid nasal spray or some sort of decongestant, are there some natural approaches? Well, yes. I think that actually, you know, as an integrative a practitioner, I think all of the things you know, take off your shoes. Make sure you're washing your clothes. If you're doing yard work put on a mask, and I live out in the mountains, and we do a lot of work in the gardens and win the, it's really windy and blowing a we just use a, you know, an ninety five sort of little mass that she can get it any drug store and that, that actually keeps out about ninety five percent of the pollen. So there a lot of strategies you can use like that, that are just sensible. And then I think there are some of the basic things like staying hydrated drinking more hot. He's you get the benefit of both the heat in the steam as well as things like ginger ginger, great natural and histamine it fins, the mucus makes you feel better. So I'm a huge advocate for ginger tea aromatherapy, you know throw some eucalyptus on wash class, but it in the corner, your shower. And then when you go into shower, you get not only the benefit of washing pollen out of the hair and things like that, but you also get that eucalyptus steam, which can also make you feel less congested, when it comes to botanical 's, I think there's a few that really float to the top one is freeze dried nettles on there was a small clinical trial, actually, that found that people who took freeze dried nettles had fewer allergy symptoms than people who did not nettles, a lot of our familiar with nettles, because we may have, like encountered them along a stream Bank and got stung by them. But when you freeze dry them in you take them in capsule form, some patients, tell me that it really, really helps. So I think that's something that's really safe. There's no downsides to it. And freeze dried nettles are not hal-. Of it for me. So safe to take long-term. Now when you go to the health food store. Sometimes they even put the Latin name and a lot of people go. I don't wanna know the Latin name, but, but how do you pronounce it? Erta diabolica. Yes, that's exactly right for the stinging nettle. And sometimes you may find that with quercetin. That combination. Many of my patients have told me works really? Well, when you add that quercetin to it's usually five hundred milligrams twice a day and quercetin seems safer for most people. There's a question about safety and pregnancy. So I wouldn't recommend it to a pregnant woman can you spill Courson because it doesn't come tripping Lee tongue? Q U, E R fee. E T, I and quercetin. And you would recommend a perhaps, a Nedal Curson combination that you. Can find in the health food store for added protection? Yes. Yes. And, you know, I think start those early if you're going to use them early in the season as much as you can there are a couple of other botanical that people use one is butter butter is also used for migraines. So people may have heard it for that purpose..

"All right. So what this last way to avoid allergies that you wanted people to know about? It is super simple. Don't move to mcallen Texas. So I don't have to become a farmer and I should move to mcallen Texas. This is good advice, but all right. So why not? Mcallen Texas. So it's just not a great place if you've got hayfever. And according to that as MMA and allergy foundation of America, the AFA macallan is the number one worst city in America for allergies we can. We can forget the mcallen tourism bureau advertising on part time at this point. But I curious. So what is this based on exactly? Is it just the pollen count? So it's actually this annual ranking that the foundation does, and it's based on a few different factors. So pollen count is one of them, but it's also things like the usage rate of algae medications. The number of algae specialists in the area and mcallen showed up near the bottom of the list for few years now. But in two thousand eighteen, they finally scored a perfect hundred on this test and put that in perspective. Louisville, Kentucky is in second place. And they only scored an eighty six point eight, holy cow. That does sound pretty bad. I mean, and I know that the south in general can be pretty tough for allergy sufferers and moving to Atlanta's been little bit rough on you with Hood, a hood. honestly, you should be thankful. You're not in the allergy capital of the world, and that is is lamb about which is the capital of Pakistan. So I'd never heard this like how bad is it there? It is horrible. I mean, this spring pollen season is so bad that many of the wealthier citizens just go to the countryside for a few months just to avoid it entirely. And then those who stay behind really try to stay indoors as much as they can. But even that is rough, it was one reporter who was speaking to a woman who actually slept upright in chaired throughout the allergies because otherwise she explained she would just stop being able to breathe. That is awful. I mean, it does seem like a little backwards though. Let like how do you wind up with a city that has more of pollen count than the countryside around it? Well, it actually comes back to the city design and it's bad design. So you go back to the nineteen sixties. Islamabad was going through a period of enormous growth and officials started looking for ways to add stretches. Of Greenspace throughout the city. And this was really just to beautify the city, but unfortunately they fell behind on this greenery project and the city remained pretty much treeless for the better part of a decade or so. Then years later, the city planners were trying to make up for this loss time and they were looking to see the entire city with these fast growing paper, mulberry trees. So all through the late sixties, you'd have helicopters flying over as Llamas, scattering, these mulberry seeds and to the planners credit. The plan actually did technically work, and these trees grew quickly. They made the city look a whole lot prettier. But the trouble was that these paper mulberry trees took a little too well to their new home city. And so throughout the seventies, the trees came to dominate the landscape and religious started crowding out all the native plants that were there pretty much completely. Yeah, I was gonna say like, I'm not that the Millia with Pakistan, but I don't really know about mulberry trees being that big a part. Landscape? Yeah, that's right in there actually listed as an invasive species in some US states as well. So honestly, no matter how you slice it seating city with these things was a terrible idea. And of course the residents weren't expecting to deal with the pollen output of tens of thousands of mulberry trees. So you know, city officials of -ffective -ly doomed a huge chunk of the population to life with these seasonal allergies. The Pakistan Medical Research Council later found that about forty, five percent of allergic patients and his Lama bad were sensitive to the trees pollen and just give you a sense of it. The city's record high pollen count is about four and a half times the records of most of the cities that sounds bizzare, but you know, one thing I'm realizing that we've been pretty tough on allergies today..
"allergies" Discussed on Part-Time Genius
"Not exactly the same way, but now a third way to treat allergies is also the closest thing we have to cure for them, and that's a Munira. Now, the most common examples of this are the allergy shots we mentioned at the top of the show, and these work much like a vaccine would, but you know a patient is. Basically injected with trace amounts of whatever they're allergic to. And gradually their body builds a tolerance to the substance until the allergic reaction is either severely reduced or even eliminated altogether. But of course, this approach also has its drawbacks. I mean, for one thing, the shots have to be administered every week and not only is that time consuming. It can also be pretty expensive and you know, especially when you consider that this kind of treatment can go on for five years or even longer. Yeah. I mean, that's what makes that toothpaste. So exciting, right. I mean, like I love this idea that you might be able to treat your allergies with toothpaste and that someday we'll be taking sunscreen through pills instead of having to apply it badly. Like I, it's amazing all these ways that we're going to be getting medicines. Yeah. And I've read a little bit about that too in terms of the sunscreen in pill form, and it's fascinating, but all right. Well, let's go back to the toothpaste. Joe just for a second because I'm still a little bit unclear on how that works. Like, how do the allergens even make it into your bloodstream? So. I was wondering that too, like I, it must be less effective than a shot. Right? But it turns out that the mouth is actually a perfect place to administer algae mats. And that's because the mucous membrane in the mouth has such a high immune response level as trying to make sure that we don't do something stupid, like drink a bunch of poison and toothpaste isn't the only way to take advantage of this. So for years, Europeans have actually used this under the tongue. Allergy drop that works the same way. The biggest problem was that the drops can aggravate your throat or stomach if you accidents, swallow them. But thankfully, the toothpaste approach, avoids those side effects all together. Well, I'm definitely pulling for this toothpaste and I, it just seems like such a hassle, free treatment and much more so than any others we've talked about. But you know, for all the parents listening, there might actually be a fourth treatment option available not to you, but to your kids, and you can think of these as preventative options or ones that wouldn't require you to just pick up and move to the farm belt. But for starters, there's a study out of the university of Albert. So it was a two thousand seventeen report that they put out. And the researchers claim that having a pet in the house could be a way to help prevent not only childhood allergies, but obesity as Well. I, I feel so guilty now because my kids have been asking for a dog for such a long time and we've been slow rolling, but they actually, they actually tipped me off and paid me a few bucks to mention this just kind of guilt you into the dominant. So tell me what like why is this the case? Like where we're so used to hearing about people with allergies, that it's hard to imagine how having one could lead to the opposite result? Well, apparently there are two types of bacteria in particular that have been linked to a lower risk of allergies and even obesity and babies. And the study showed that babies who lived with pets had way more of both types of these now, incredibly these positive results held true even in households where pets had passed away before the baby was born. So you could have just gotten a really old dog like, well, Liz. Zi was pregnant, and maybe that would have solved everything, but that suggests that that health boost from these bacteria might even extend into the womb. So if it really comes down to just to Victoria, like could we ever just get some kind of pet and a pill one day? I mean, you know, so you don't have to deal with any of the dog walking, but you get all the benefits of their dirty nece. I love that this is your solution when you're supposed to be the dog lover of the two of us. I mean, I am. I love to have a dog, but we've got family..
