Your smartwatch could detect COVID

"Your apple watch or your fit bit or samsung galaxy. Watch or other wearable device and tracker could eventually signal whether you've been infected with covid nineteen or other illnesses such as the flu. Most of the research studies underway suggests that a few days before a person would test positive for the coronavirus their heart rate or activity level. Changes enough to suggest your about to do so. Now you probably know this most of our listeners. Probably know this but where will just the apple watch and samsung galaxy. Smartwatch fitbit and other devices already collect information such as heart oxygen data as well asleep and activity levels so researchers at mount sinai hospital in new york and at stanford university's healthcare innovation lab. And there's more places like the scripps research translation institute in la hoya california and in the universities like university of washington purdue are all at various stages of research looking into this and fitbit is actually also working with the department of defense. The department of veteran affairs at nasa on covid nineteen detection. So there's a lot of interest here but the findings aren't foolproof. Because could be false positives and things like that. But at stanford eighty one percent of the thirty two patients who became infected with covid nineteen had changes in heart rates. Time spent sleeping and daily steps that they've taken the researchers wrote in a publication. They put out in a journal called nature biomedical engineering now. Most of the covid nineteen patients there about sixty three percent had changes that could have led to early detection before the onset of symptoms. They found researcher. N- probably not ever going to be able to tell you definitively that you will develop covid nineteen based on the variations in your heartbeat. Or how much sleep you got. How much activity level you've had and how that's changed. However if there's a way to give you a heads up to get a test and perhaps quarantine that could potentially prevent the spread of covid nineteen or other illnesses to other people including your family friends and coworkers so this research is ongoing to the studies are looking for more participants.

Apple Watch Can Detect COVID-19 A Week Before Symptoms Begin Showing Up

"Researchers at mount sinai health system in new york and stanford university in california have found a way to predict if users of apple garment and fitbit watches have covid nineteen before the viruses detectable in tests. The mount sinai study analyzed apple watch wears for heart rate variability which is a known marker of inflammation people infected with cove in nineteen experience lower heart rate variability stanford monitored whereas if apple garment amphibian devices and found that eighty one percent of corona virus positive patients experience changes in their resting heart rate for up to nine and a half days prior to the onset of symptoms the researchers could predict infection into third of those infected

How Much Money Can You Make on YouTube?

"Youtube is a media monster. It's such a huge platform and such a great search engine for information entertainment education. It's a real live monopoly. Nothing comes close to youtube. Yes there's video but the meals really not there as a source of media people maybe post videos and is very short in the film industry or in the arts but nobody comes close and believe it or not. It's still very early days in youtube. You still can get into youtube and really grow. I still find an astonishing. That youtube is still free. Meaning you can start a youtube channel. You can publish to the platform. You can store videos. You can accept comments. All this is free. And yes their business. Model relies on content. That will create. But you can easily charge a very small annual fee just a stroll. He's videos for crying out loud. But it's still open for everybody for free which is a great opportunity. There's over two billion logged in users every single month on youtube and this statistic is huge eighty-one percent of fifteen to twenty five year olds are on youtube. This means the existing and future generations in the next five to ten years that are spending. Money are on this platform over five hundred hours of video uploaded to youtube every single minute and ask business. Youtube is not going anywhere in the us alone. They made five point. Five billion dollars in revenue in just twenty twenty. So what are your options when it comes to earning an income on youtube. Well the obvious option is to become a creator being a youtuber. Were you publish content on youtube channel and youtube places ads on your video when people watch those ads. You get a bit of money now. How much money. You might be surprised about this figure. But i do research based on other youtubers. I've read forms read. It's an on average for every thousand video views. You can earn between three and five dollars. Why the range will depend on. Popular channel is how in demand. Your videos are Retention rates all that kind of stuff it also depends on the length of the video. How many ads are on that video. All that kind of stuff. But this is just general Barometer for you so if a video gets let's say ten thousand views you're probably gonna make around forty dollars on that video so just off that rough number you might be thinking. Wow that's not that much money that means if a video got a million views which is absolutely incredible. Very hard to do that. Video would earn ten four. To five thousand dollars in ad revenue. Now you can see why youtubers true publish as many videos as possible. The try to get you to subscribe So you can watch those videos reminder to watch those videos the do a lot of seo. They wanna get people searching and finding their videos and watching those it is even if subscribers because their ad revenue dollars count on the fact that people click on videos. Watch the videos watch threats now in order for you to even monetize. Your channel youtube requires you to have a thousand subscribers to your channel. This is a new rule that they place maybe a few years ago When i started on youtube this wasn't there also have to have at least four thousand watched two hours in the last twelve months so you can't just have a bunch of subscribers and Views to another rough estimate. I know noah kagan recently launched a video on youtube talking about How much money the earn on ads in washington. Ads run on his channel and they earn between three to four thousand dollars a month and they have a hundred thousand subscribers around one hundred thousand subscribers and a takes a lot of work. I mean no has been working on his youtube channel four years publishing great grey videos on a regular basis highly produced a well edited very engaging. So if you're looking to make money on youtube as a youtuber solely on ad revenue this has got to be your main game. This has got to be your Dedicated craft where you're trying your best to produce amazing content gray videos gray editing and those who make a healthy income six figures seven figures on youtube the really catering to a large large audience. They're trying to mass a huge audience and often niches that are in comedy entertainment sports tech things that will appeal to the masses. Now if your business is not one of those knee shes don't worry that's not the only way you can make money on youtube ad. Revenues only one way. And it's actually not the one way. I would recommend videos agree to build relationships. It's a good way to start the relationship to educate people to give content I would say second to blogging. Videos are incredibly powerful and it's becoming more and more a seo powerhouse. People search for certain things videos will come up so see youtube as a way for you to get in front of your audience and give them great value in exchange. They're going to check you out. Check out your work. Subscription newsletters Understand what you and take you up on it. A lot of companies have started youtube channels solely on the fact that youtube is so powerful and they can get in front of their audience. Very easily one caveat. Though you're in the video business in youtube you're basically becoming a media company in any kind of investment you're gonna make in content marketing. You need to be consistent. You need to be committed. This means consistently producing great video great content. Then it's a lot of work to create a video so whatever it is whether you decide to create a video every two weeks or every month you gotta stick to it. It's a lot of work in my recommendation is to get somebody dedicated to this on your team or you dedicate yourself if this is something you enjoy doing now. I don't recommend that because you need to run a business so hiring one person to run your youtube channel is the bare minimum in my Estimation you should really have somebody and they could be the talent that could be the person in front of camera. But they're they're the person that has to be responsible for producing these videos on a consistent basis. Very much like podcasting Your youtube subscribers are looking forward to the next release. They are expecting the next piece of content from you and you got to fulfill those expectations and utah will reward you for that consistency for the constant effort to adding to their great content on the platform. And yes you can also monetize and make some Money on the side based on your views but in this strategy your mean goal here is to build a relationship with the larger audience. that's on youtube With people that are searching for certain terms getting them to get your website get on your email lists and continue growing that relationship there so they can become a customer if you want to check out some examples of companies. Have done this really. Well checkout prophet. Well patrick campbell and his team has done incredible job with their youtube channel. Checkout podesta's youtube channel. I mentioned a noah kagan. He's done a great job with his youtube channel. Brian deane from back lincoln. Also a business. That sells seo courses advice. Coaching and he's built an incredible. Seo base channel on youtube.

The Cider-Sipping, Mitten-Wearing Guide To 2020 Holiday Movies

"Guys it's my d-. I work with amy on the bobby bones show. I'm a head writer and producer over there and also have a podcast in my own called movie. Mike's movie podcast or all. I do is talk about movies. I explore movie topics. i do. Movie reviews and sometimes bring on actors and directors to talk about their movies. So what i wanted to bring to. This episode is my holiday watching movie guide so i have five different categories with five different movies. You can add to your watching playlists. I know it's only november. But i feel like we've pretty much gone straight into christmas holiday mode right now so these are some great movies to go ahead and put on your list in the first category. Let's go with the favorite old school classic. And i'm to have to give it to the original. Og christmas movie. A christmas story from nineteen eighty-three. It's a movie. Probably all grew up watching and at this point we can kind of just have it on in the background and it just gives us that christmas feeling. They're just so many classic moments in classic quotes from this. A christmas story also had the eighty nine percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's not available to stream anywhere right now but if you want to rent it. It's on amazon for three ninety nine. And then if you have cable subscription service you can usually catch it on pbs or stream. It their on demand. And i feel like when it comes to having a classic. You can't go wrong with the christmas story. Only i didn't say fudge. I said the word the big one. The queen mother of dirty words dash dash dash next up. I had the category of the best modern classics. So i feel like this is a movie been around long enough but it's still relatively new and it's a movie now. That actually came out seventeen years ago. So i feel like it's so far stood the test of time and i don't really seeing any point to where this movie will not be a part of my christmas and if you haven't seen it at this point well i don't know what you're waiting for. I don't know where you've been in the movie. I'm talking about is l. It has eighty four percent rating on rotten tomatoes. It's currently not available to watch anywhere for free but you can read it on amazon for three ninety nine and if you happen to have a stars direct tv subscription you can watch it there. And the thing. I love about this movie that everybody i talked you kind of has their own favourite part of the movie. My favorite part is when buddy the elvis. I leaving to go find his dad and he's saying goodbye to everybody to hope you find your dad. Thanks in our wall. All right the next category is the unconventional christmas movie. I think every year people had a debate on what is an isn't a christmas movie. Several different movies kind of fit into this category. But one i feel that kinda gets left out in the discussion. Every year is harry potter. And the sorcerer's stone now all throughout the harry potter series. I feel like christmas is a pretty big part of it. And not only that. But i feel like christmas scenes. In harry potter are just some of the most magnificently done christmas. Any christmas movie. And i don't know why they get left out of that conversation. The bad thing about the harry potter movies is they are pretty much taken off of any kind of streaming service and you can really only rent them on amazon for three ninety nine but the first one does have eighty one percent rating on rotten tomatoes. If you haven't seen it yet. And i know overall christmas is pretty small. Part of the entire franchise. But harry potter at one point does get the visibility cloak as a christmas gift and therefore i'm dubbing get a christmas movie christmas happy christmas next category. I wanna do favorite rated r. movies. So this is christmas louise for adults so kids. If you're listening you can't watch these movies and parents. I feel like these were made for. Maybe some of us. Who don't necessarily enjoy christmas movies. And just want something to make you laugh. That just has a little bit of christmas in it. Because i know sometimes christmas movies get a little bit cheesy and my all time. Favorite rated r. christmas movie is bad. Santa it literally makes me laugh out loud. And i know it's incredibly rajini incredibly inappropriate. But i love billy bob thornton and even in the crudeness and the rudeness of this movie i do feel like it has a lot of heart and if he can get through the dirty jokes and the bad language you do find a pretty nice christmas story here and bad. Santa has a seventy eight percent rating on rotten tomatoes. And as of right now you would have to pay to ninety nine to streaming on amazon. But i know once it gets closer to christmas. It has popped up on netflix. Maybe check for it. There later was gonna make some sandwiches. I could make you one before you leave. Okay maybe some sandwiches harshest. You want the usual amount. Just whatever you think. Okay right in the last category. I want to get to is a favourite new christmas movie. And i'm gonna go with the holiday. Would you can watch now on net flicks and a little bit of a warning. It is kind of raunchy and crude. Just like the bad santa movie but if you're into movies like bridesmaids or the hangover i feel like it's kind of in that category so it's emma roberts and luke bracy who is australia and he's kind of like the kmart version of chris hemsworth and they come up with this plan to be each other's dates for only the holidays. So let's be only time they ever get together so it starts at christmas goes through all the holidays in the united states and then ends up back at christmas and if you guessed at home that they ended up developing feelings for each other throughout this plane to be each other's holiday. Will you guessed correctly but again. That doesn't spoil. The movie is basically in the trailer. And it's basically what every kind of cheesy romantic comedy. Christmas movie plot is about. But i think overall this movie just makes you kind of turn your brain off and enjoy a nice holiday movie. And isn't that what we all need right now. All right. that's your holiday movie guide if you enjoyed that segment and want to hear more about movies to check out my podcast movie. Mike's movie podcast. Just search movie mike. Wherever you're listening to this right now

The Mystery Of The Mummified Twinkie

"Colin purring in Pennsylvania wanted the world to know about his accidental fungal experiments involving twinkies. So what happened next? So he posted photos on twitter and they were seen by two scientists, Brian Love it and Matt Casson at West Virginia University, they study Fungi Casson says fungi are everywhere and they have this amazing ability to break down all kinds of substances. Fungi growing on jet fuel. Wow. So he means fungi can grow on pretty much anything and everything. Yeah and in the past their lab has tested how well they grow in peeps. You know that classic marshmallow tree tour hasn't says fungi found the peace challenging because you know they don't have a lot of water in them in a way they're kind of like an extreme environment, right? The food industry has crafted the ability to to make foods that have a long shelf life. You know I could test that out right now I got some old peeps in my house my kid. Kept from Easter like years ago. But anyway back to the twinkies. So these researchers were intrigued by Collins Posts on twitter and Colin was only too happy to mail his twinkies right to their lab. They suspected that whatever had mummified the twinkie was some kind of fungus but they wanted to confirm that and then find out exactly what kind of fungus. Okay. So twinkie mummy gets shipped to the lab obviously, they had to open it up. I'm guessing and as I look at the photo, the plastic wrapping around the shriveled twinkie looks like it's been vacuum-sealed like it sucked inward like. Right right. So the scientists thought maybe the fungus got in before the package was sealed, and then as it grew the fungus was using up more air or oxygen than it was putting out I mean, here's how love it described it. You end up with a document. And very well, vacuum may have halted. The fungus is ability to continue to grow We have the snapshot of what we were sent but who knows if this process occurred five years ago and he just only noticed it now yeah five years that's forty times the shelf life of a twinkie in eternity for twinkie anyway they had expected this horrific smelled hit them. When they opened the packaging, the smell would possibly kill one of us. But because of them of -cation there there really was no smell at all, which was really a pleasant surprise. So twinkie mommy is unwrapped smells like nothing what happened next? Well, they took a quick look with a magnifying scope and Juhasz some signs of fungal spore formation on the twinkie. So that suggested a fungus of some kind and the next step was to take a sample. So casting used a bone biopsy tool to sort of drill through the tough outer layer of this grey mummified twinkie, we certainly hit the marrow of the twinkie and quickly realized that there was still some. Cream filling on the inside. So, the inside was still cream-filled. Yeah that was a surprise they thought it would be sort of hard all the way through of it says, whatever did this to the twinkie it seems that the fungus was more interested in the cake on the outside. Then the filling on the inside see, this is a smart fungus because cake is clearly the superior part of the twinkie same with Orios same with cupcakes. You know what I'm talking about right now I don't know to me. It's like the combination of two things that's key. So I can't really separate them in my mind. That's fair I. Accept that. So the scientists have taken samples from the twinkie, do they go about determining what kind of fungus growing on it? They actually sampled multiple twinkies. Okay. So one was the mummified twinkie we've been talking about the other was the second twinkie from Collins box that was not mummified. The one that was just you know marred, it had that weird little blemish on the outside of it, and then they had this control scientific experiment they need scientific control, which was a what they called an as symptomatic twinkie from the same box. So they put those samples into lab dishes with nutrients commonly used to grow fungi, and from that little blemish twinkie the one. With just the little. Marc, they were able to grow a very common indoor fungus called Klee does sport him common indoor fungus, right? It's one of the most common airborne molds worldwide. Okay. So what about from the mummified twinkie? Okay. So that's where it gets even more interesting. Love. It says, they have not been able to grow any fungus from that particular sample. It may be that we don't have any living spores on store certainly dying depending on the fungus they could I very quickly and remember because the twinkie had been sort of vacuum sealed by whatever was going on there. You know it seems like it couldn't grow anymore inside it's wrapping. So there's truly perhaps no life in this twinkie. Well, the scientists you know weren't going to let that stop them they. Samples from both the marred and the mummified twinkies and he sent off to DNA sequencing company and twelve hours. Later, they got the results back the mark twinkie was a ninety nine point six percent matched to a fungus called close Boreham zeile film. The mummified twinkie was eighty one percent to a closely related clear does for him species. Plato's Boreham Tenuous Sim. CASSON's says DNA from the mummified twinkie was pretty degraded. So they actually probably are the same fungus. I'm so amazed they were able to identify these fungi from these twinkies. It is the mystery of the twinkie over I remain confident that science will continue already one researcher Kate Wallace at the University of Illinois contacted them and asked for a bit of the mummified that she wants to put in a scanning electron microscope. One that can get really really close. Up Images and hopefully you know see something cool and Kasim says he's not turning his lab entirely over to twinkie studies but you know they could still do some more research. We thought about inoculating some healthy twinkies with some cletus forum may be doing some transplants with the bone marrow biopsy tool where we replace a healthy plug with a fungus colonize plug. And see what happens from there. This twinkie line of research is just relentless. There's so many of questions still I mean what's the overall moral of the story here that you can try to hold onto the past but nothing gold can stay not even a twinkie well, that's one moral I mean another moral of the story is that Colin, purring ten should've listened to his mother and had more respect for expiration dates but you know people are really drawn to this myth that twinkies are immortal. I should mention we did reach out to hostess brands for comment on this story and I have not heard back from them at all You know the mummy twinkie is this different kind. Of disturbing vision of what the future could hold for twinkies and you know for all of us I mean Matt and says, this story seems to be gripping for people maybe because the grey mummified twinkie is such a dramatic contrast to this golden iconic twinkie that lives in our memories when those memories are tainted by like a visual reality like the twinkie experiment, we're kind of like caught off guard and we're like wait no, that's a symbol of my childhood. You can't take that from me to. So basically, like you said, emily, nothing lasts forever. You know here's Brian Love again, we're living in a time where we're all really grappling with our mortality eventually, all of us are future fungi. On. Seeing. That is sort of facing the the reality. Of. Holly and Our destination now, I did not expect a twinkie experiment to be a meditation on the human. Condition

The Mystery Of The Mummified Twinkie

"Colin purring in Pennsylvania wanted the world to know about his accidental fungal experiments involving twinkies. So what happened next? So he posted photos on twitter and they were seen by two scientists, Brian Love it and Matt Casson at West Virginia University, they study Fungi Casson says fungi are everywhere and they have this amazing ability to break down all kinds of substances. Fungi growing on jet fuel. Wow. So he means fungi can grow on pretty much anything and everything. Yeah and in the past their lab has tested how well they grow in peeps. You know that classic marshmallow tree tour hasn't says fungi found the peace challenging because you know they don't have a lot of water in them in a way they're kind of like an extreme environment, right? The food industry has crafted the ability to to make foods that have a long shelf life. You know I could test that out right now I got some old peeps in my house my kid. Kept from Easter like years ago. But anyway back to the twinkies. So these researchers were intrigued by Collins Posts on twitter and Colin was only too happy to mail his twinkies right to their lab. They suspected that whatever had mummified the twinkie was some kind of fungus but they wanted to confirm that and then find out exactly what kind of fungus. Okay. So twinkie mummy gets shipped to the lab obviously, they had to open it up. I'm guessing and as I look at the photo, the plastic wrapping around the shriveled twinkie looks like it's been vacuum-sealed like it sucked inward like. Right right. So the scientists thought maybe the fungus got in before the package was sealed, and then as it grew the fungus was using up more air or oxygen than it was putting out I mean, here's how love it described it. You end up with a document. And very well, vacuum may have halted. The fungus is ability to continue to grow We have the snapshot of what we were sent but who knows if this process occurred five years ago and he just only noticed it now yeah five years that's forty times the shelf life of a twinkie in eternity for twinkie anyway they had expected this horrific smelled hit them. When they opened the packaging, the smell would possibly kill one of us. But because of them of -cation there there really was no smell at all, which was really a pleasant surprise. So twinkie mommy is unwrapped smells like nothing what happened next? Well, they took a quick look with a magnifying scope and Juhasz some signs of fungal spore formation on the twinkie. So that suggested a fungus of some kind and the next step was to take a sample. So casting used a bone biopsy tool to sort of drill through the tough outer layer of this grey mummified twinkie, we certainly hit the marrow of the twinkie and quickly realized that there was still some. Cream filling on the inside. So, the inside was still cream-filled. Yeah that was a surprise they thought it would be sort of hard all the way through of it says, whatever did this to the twinkie it seems that the fungus was more interested in the cake on the outside. Then the filling on the inside see, this is a smart fungus because cake is clearly the superior part of the twinkie same with Orios same with cupcakes. You know what I'm talking about right now I don't know to me. It's like the combination of two things that's key. So I can't really separate them in my mind. That's fair I. Accept that. So the scientists have taken samples from the twinkie, do they go about determining what kind of fungus growing on it? They actually sampled multiple twinkies. Okay. So one was the mummified twinkie we've been talking about the other was the second twinkie from Collins box that was not mummified. The one that was just you know marred, it had that weird little blemish on the outside of it, and then they had this control scientific experiment they need scientific control, which was a what they called an as symptomatic twinkie from the same box. So they put those samples into lab dishes with nutrients commonly used to grow fungi, and from that little blemish twinkie the one. With just the little. Marc, they were able to grow a very common indoor fungus called Klee does sport him common indoor fungus, right? It's one of the most common airborne molds worldwide. Okay. So what about from the mummified twinkie? Okay. So that's where it gets even more interesting. Love. It says, they have not been able to grow any fungus from that particular sample. It may be that we don't have any living spores on store certainly dying depending on the fungus they could I very quickly and remember because the twinkie had been sort of vacuum sealed by whatever was going on there. You know it seems like it couldn't grow anymore inside it's wrapping. So there's truly perhaps no life in this twinkie. Well, the scientists you know weren't going to let that stop them they.

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola

"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

What A&D Companies Should Invest In After COVID-19

"Can you tell us a little bit about the Tech Vision? Report and the survey that accenture has completed of all of these. Amd Xhosa and other senior leaders Michael. Every year accenture surveys over six thousand senior executives across twenty four industries including aerospace and defense. And it's a great way to get a pulse. On how companies how executives see technology and how it can help them transform and Change Your Business and as you pointed out earlier you know. We're we're we're in a stage of of Nevers so we we got unprecedented change. However as an industry and defence almost by definition solves large audacious. And so. That's what we have basing us. And this year's technology vision shows I think a good snapshot in terms a what are what are your executive. What is what's their perspective. What are their expectations around? How digital can help them navigate and certainly Looking you know post pandemic and what's important for companies to survive long term is around systems resiliency security looking at. How do they? How do they interact with with customers? Now Remotely how do I use a? I gotta use robotics things like that to increase safety and have an interaction that you want to have a with your customer. How do I introduce resiliency under the supply chain how do I innovate? Innovation was a key area that came out initiate technology vision. And so so. The report this year shows how aerospace and defense companies can use that in order to set up to get through the short-term chaos and as well setting up for for the nest in terms of longer term and viewing with with more certainty than we as. An industry are typically. Have again looking at that. Tech Vision report digital is the overarching theme. And I see these these five focal points. The I and experience a and mead the dilemma of smart things robots in the wild. Is You guys talk about and innovation DNA? And we're going to get into each of these but John. Why do these new technologies like the one jeff just talked about have the potential to disrupt handy and coming nearest so much? Why these fought? The five trends are really brought together from all the research that Jeff is talking about earlier in in when I kind of translate them into aerospace and defense and I know we're going to dive into him. We look at it across what I'll call general kind of value chain ride starting with the customer experience and that starts on the flight deck with the everybody from the crew to the passengers in seats going. Onto HOW COMPANIES ENGINEER MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS. How they work with their extended supply chain operations in aftermarket and of course is a foundational element across all of this stuff around software and information security analytics artificial intelligence and talent and expertise itself in when we can look at some of the statistics that came out of this. In terms of new technologies disrupting or refining. Is that seventy. One percent of aerospace and defense executives believe robotics are gonNA enable next generation of services which is a pretty big component of a executives looking at robotic specifically seventy seven percent already piloting or implementing. Ai Solutions. I would just maybe not such a huge surprised me although I think we can talk more about that later as well. Eighty one percent think they're connected products and services are GonNa continue to be updated. Important Component of growth in their futures and a ninety percent believed that they need to elevate relationships with their customers as partners in engaging and engaging better technology so let's Start diving into them We might as well right away Couple of interesting statistics. I've seen in the sneak peek of the report. You guys gave me seventy two percent of Andy executives that you pulled agree. That organizations need to dramatically in reengineer and I emphasize that dramatically reengineer to bring technology into a more human centric manner John this resonates with a lot of people in the wake of the seven three seven Max issues but as you and I have talked about for years. India has been wrestling with user interface and information overload for a while. This go with that. I think I think it does and and yet I would take this at even broader sense rights at the broadest sense again going back to that maybe the value chain is loosely described it starting with the pilots and the crew and a passenger experience and then thinking about next generation technology driven improvements. They'll be taking more human centric approach. So for instance we used to talk a lot about in-flight experienced for entertainment and bring your own device but now thinking about going forward how you take. Technology and new ways of engineering product to improve comfort hygiene and safety on the aircraft for instance in in the commercial side no then move onto production operations flight controls and all the way through maintenance and we're technology is able to impact our ability to engineer products. That better accomplish their tasks and in essence. What we're doing is reporting that digital thread that we've talked about with an eye towards how people interact with technology to accomplish your jobs at every step from you know the first part of Innovation Engineering Manufacturing Assembly production and operations so it seems part and parcel to the issue has been the rise of artificial intelligence and again looking at the report here.

"The hang sang. Do you buy all the trades? Yeah. I think China was the first market to go down as as being the worst performer things. Don't look good economically for them. The stimulus isn't working because there's no opportunity on the on the on the return side to for people to take risks. So it's going to continue to go that way. But that's also putting a lot of pressure on she to make a deal for the trade trade talks. I think both Trump and she have more than enough reasons to make a deal to call markets in the in the next couple of weeks. If you saw a factual delivered between she and Trump would that shift your proclivity to take more equity risk? I think it will help the the the a share market for sure. And some of the Hong Kong stocks that are that are linked to those to those companies definitely you will have a short-term rebound. But the backdrop of all of this rise in risk is still weak economic projections for next year globally. We demand you're looking at a very weak politicians everywhere, the US the UK Italy now, even she. So there isn't a lot to to to be, you know, bullish about. So I think what you're going to get. It's probably a situation where you might have a small rebound on on any deal. That's made even if it's a watershed deal, and then you'll have a second shoe later on tonight. I ask you this question. This takes us to our question of a day to try and put some framing Ryan that which is how far con- stalks rally, and you can pick your market. Whether you think it's a one percent five percent. I mean, look at the five hundred this morning. Eighty one percent this morning on our air. That's after talk of a big deal and wealth creation and high forty think stocks can rally all trade talks. So that's a good point. I don't think the rally is going to be very forget the last two weeks worth of data points because the markets were so thin. It's not really relevant. But in two weeks time, you have CEO's to start their earning season start talking and we want to investors want to hear from them. How bad is it is this trade deal going to help you out? And and I don't think it's going to give them much hope for big rebound. So I think you're gonna get a small rebound. And then you're going to go back to people de leveraging again. Okay. Well, we'll take a little bit deeper, and where we do put our money to work in just a moment the dossier. Head of applied. We set out Exuma stays.
