It's like you know hats when we shifted this around. Actually say gosh.

"And so i mean you just a phenomenal church with a great vision and they were very community oriented particularly in the black and mexican community there in los angeles or she might have been there. When when i guess she's only twenty two even from la for awhile. Hey hey hey older than i look. Okay okay that's all right. Well listen on another another great note. We opened up the globe. Saying what are we. See a great column by adrian. Walker about your spouse irene. Tell us absolutely absolutely well. You know the last time we talked we had this conversation about sia taking The vaccine in my whole. You know how i was going to move forward with. It is that she was my canary in a coal mine and as we said on what i that if she didn't wake up dead when she didn't then you go out and i myself and go get vaccinated a beautiful sentiment or exact words. If i may interrupt irene your exact words were if she aim dead. We're okay. it was what you said. So that we own slogan. Yeah go ahead. Absolutely so. I'm i'm very. I'm very very proud of her. And also What i like about it is that it's really getting the message out. And we're actually seeing the sea change here in terms of blacks really sort of lining up And going for the vaccine and one of the things that says in the article. She says they asked her like. It's one of the vaccines for just black people and one four for white people and that's a real important question because again you can easily pull us out by by where zip code and where we live and she said no you know both vaccines are efficient. And and the vaccines are everyone. As a matter of fact you know cambridge is doing a wonderful thing in terms of clergy here and that they consider us the second tier frontline workers which we are. We're doing funerals and in meeting with folks and they will they have put out a call for clergy now to line up In cambridge and get their vaccine. So i'm very. I'm very optimistic. Seeing how we're moving forward and cutting through something historically steeped in our community which is the history of the tuskegee study. Well you know. There's a thought of in fact. I read the things almost simultaneously the story adrian walker wrote about. It said that before shots in er doc and a big shot in the hierarchy at the great boston medical center. But you know i was reading the piece about her and then i'm reading the piece about how blacks and latin x people are always getting the short end of the stick whenever there is a fiscal or economic or health crisis and i know that the is pretty much dedicated her life to those issues of equity. And let me read you a lot. I had congressman presley on tv with me other night and she wrote a letter on tuesday to the governor about her concerns about lack of equity in the vaccine distribution. Listen to these. Numbers is a letter. She wrote to governor baker according to data released by the massachusetts department of public health black and latinx next residents make up and let less than three and four percent respectively of those who've been vaccinated thus far whereas white residents make up nearly sixty percent of those fully vaccinated again according to the congresswoman three and four percent black and latinx necks of those vaccinated sixty percent amongst white. So the answer is the theater. James of the world..

Experience gordon conwell theological seminary irene munro as a syndicate religion columnist boston voice for detours american herded trail. They're both the hosts of the oil. Revved up podcast. Irene could talk you both. Thanks for having us back our pleasure. Yeah great happy black history month. Oh that's right starts. Today to that is correct so irene monroe you and i have gone back and forth in the catholic church several times so now that we find out that amanda gorman the unbelievably talented poet whose now got these these books in the often. They're gonna be bestseller. She's going to be reciting a poem super bowl even got a modeling contract show. I know that she's raised. This black catholic parish. And i don't know if you're gonna call manda and tell her to straighten out the pope. That's what i wanna know irene. Well you know. I'm very very glad that you and i can. I can't talk on this issue and be happy about it. No not at all because she comes from a tradition of while she comes from a religious community of catholic priests and their call josephites anyway and it had started this ministry was formed in eighteen. Seventy one so to meet the needs of a free blacks after the civil war. So no i'm not. I'm not going to be arguing with her at all. but what. I like about a jesuit in their jesuit in there. Absolutely but you know the the point the astros center catholic church doesn't get enough attention here. If you remember for a father stallings do you remember him in washington. Dc in the nineties. He had the temple african american catholic congregation. Well okay well you don't but my but my point is that when you talk about black churches whether whether it's africa the caribbean or the united states. I mean it will always. You will always hear kind of black theology whether it's from you know reverend raphael warnock's congregation or whether you are hearing it from her heart particular congregational more importantly jeremiah wright who really is the embodiment of that kind of religious. Isa so get actually. Can i say another thing. You'll also hear from the pope when he talks about preferential option for the poor because that brand of catholicism is shape liberation theology. And we always hear the pope announcing something. Nice about the pope marjorie. Say something he has but there's still down with the catholic church on gays and women. That's the problem right. So i guess that's why i mean. Absolutely you left town was what happened here. Oh you are. I just had to leave. I was over in the peanut gavin. So for those who don't recall with franklin you're in la kind of guy. Yeah no the church. I know this church very well and was interesting about coming to boston. You know almost twenty years ago. This church framed my reference for the catholic community. So when i came to boston. I didn't really understand you know all of the history here in boston because i grew up literally around the corner. This church was on western avenue. Saint bridget and interested. I grew up was twenty forty west jefferson boulevard and we were sister churches. Gosh we. I always knew catholics. Who were who were were black. And of course Let next mexican as we would call them in los angeles but this church always had essentially they had a gospel choir that make melt. They had the greatest opposition around there..

"You're talking about two things about it and again. We'll ask dr greg barnett about one. Seventy percent is still really good by the way most flu. Vaccines fifty and that sort of thing number two The seventy percent relates to getting symptoms. It doesn't relate to accept illness which is eighty five percent and third. It's in a different environment with a far more contagious era. Than when the maderna's in the the pfizer's were tested so actually. I had the same impression you had the seven. Seventy percent was far worse. In fact it is terrific. It's not fast. Shouldn't be upset. Johnson and johnson also. It's a single dose. A so any case joe. I'm sorry a hell up. John quincy high. That's quite all right. I hope you're doing well today. We are young i. I was fortunate in that. I was able to find appointment for my in laws at walgreens actually in boston for this afternoon only because they were walgreens was kind of flying under the radar for a day or so on thursday when they will this out but my question. Maybe you can find out an answer to this I don't understand why we're not using the bc. The convention center and is our masters of boston area Vaccination site with the thing that disturbs me about fenway. And reggie lewis is there's basically no parking and The bbc has a huge parking lots. I believe that it's dormant. I don't think they have any real there's no conventions going on now. And i'm sure. Greatest fenway i imagine. Wally greet you at the door. And maybe you can buy a hotdog afterwards. But it's still out in the freezing cold. they're doing it by the concession stands. I believe underneath. It's actually well. It's they they from what i've read In the concourses and their heaters so their their position is that people will stay relatively warm. They're not out in the cold like on your while. It's not called yawkey way jersey street or whatever they'll it's gold anymore but you make a wonderful point that seems to be a fabulous location. I don't know why and we will try to ask the appropriate people. Joe so keep listening. That's actually a pretty good site marguerite on your thank. Thank you joe for your call.

"Joins me from here in London with the latest Phil finally, a dose of good news. Talk to us about the advantage off this vaccine on crucially when they expected to be Rolled out. This is where this vaccine is special. This is pretty great. Haven't have a gander here it what AstraZeneca's doing so very quickly. They plan to roll it out deliveries in the next day or two with vaccinations starting as early as next week. And what's I guess so exciting about this vaccine is that it is logistically convenient. It doesn't need to be kept it deep, stored deep cold storage temperatures, Aziz finds the vaccine does know, for example, we could effectively be kept in a free Which which means that it can be moved around and stored relatively easily rolled out more widely. So kind of like the Madonna vaccine. Madonna still requires cold temperatures. I think I think has to be in a freezer. But it doesn't have to be the ultra cold storage like the fines or vaccine.

As Americans start to receive Moderna vaccine, questions arise about a new COVID-19 strain

"Tonight. The cdc says this corona virus variant this new strain found circulating in the uk could already indeed be circulating in our country. Undetected pfizer. Says it's highly likely that its vaccine effective against the new strain. It'll take roughly two weeks to know for sure but the company says it could produce a new vaccine to match the new strain in six weeks. Well for more we welcome back to our broadcast dr. Selene ghandour clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious disease at the nyu still of medicine in bellevue hospital in new york. She was recently named to the president-elect's corona virus advisory board a doctor gander. First of all. It's great to have you back. Second what is your level of concern on this new strain. And what's the truth about. Existing testing will the testing. We have if you're lucky enough to get one. Expose it well brian. There's a lot that we still don't know about this variant. But i do think that we need to take this very seriously as a potential new threat We don't know if this new variant is in fact more transmissible we think it may be based on modeling that we don't have concrete data on that yet we don't know if this new variant could be more deadly most of those who have been infected with it in the uk so far has been on the younger side and they tend to have milder cases of coronavirus to begin with. So it's a little hard to say whether there's going to be a significant difference in severity of illness and finally we don't know for sure. If the vaccines that have been developed by pfizer by madonna and others will protect against this new variant. We think they probably will. But if there are further mutations that accumulate in these variance where the change even more. It is possible. They could evade the vaccines we've developed. Thus far i heard someone say today. We can try to use the defense production. Act to make more vaccine to keep the pipeline full of pp which just don't know how to make any more doctors and nurses a personnel staffing as becoming the issue. We have ground them all down between spikes of this disease. What are we going to do in these hospitals these regions that are running above full. Tilt we we really can't defense production act our way out of this one. You can't manufacture doctors and nurses and while you can play around the margins by promoting medical students to first year residents or trying to bring people out of retirement. That's not gonna make a huge dent in this what you really need to do. It's a supply and demand problem right and we have a major demand across the country. What is driving that is transmission and really the only way to get ourselves out of. This situation is to flatten the curve. It's what we've been talking about for months. Now which is reduced the number of cases so that health care systems. Doctors nurses can cope with the number of patients that are being asked to care for. Where do you come down on shot shaming. We have a report later in our broadcast uses as an example thirty one year old member of congress from new york in perfect health. Got her inoculation Before doctors and nurses across the country some of them who are begging for there's and putting hands on patients every day. How should people view these lines and the notion of cutting in line. I think when you have enough an elected official who steps up and wants to get vaccinated. I do think there is very important symbolic value in that to show the american people that they trust the process by which this vaccine was developed and you factored approved by the fda and so i think the value of that messaging is worth it for. Somebody like that to be back. Stated early dr selene gander. Thanks for your work. Thank you very much for agreeing to come on and take our questions. We always appreciate having you.

But the sees formidable power was never truly there's for beneath its depths lived a creature that could upend the vikings world with a single thrash of his tail. His name was your main gonder in norse mythology. Your men gondar is the son of the trickster spirit loki and the giant tests angra boda. He's the middle child of a monstrous brewed.

Ganders name means huge monster and for good reason. His body is so massive that it fully encircles mid guard the human world of the ancient norse but even more on settling than his size are his deadly fangs dripping with venom and lodged in a gaping maw large enough to swallow a giant some of the earliest lower about your men. Ghandour is found in the poetic and prose as the poetic edda is a thirteenth century collection of poems from unknown icelandic authors.

They belong to the viking age to an era during which the northern people's maintained the liveliest relations with the outside world. The ancient vikings relationship with your men gonder was certainly lively. The giant serpent symbolized the uncontrollable force of a natural disaster inexplicable floods earthquakes and storms. That were beyond humanity's control. Were all blamed on your men. Ghandoure's restless movements and the viking survival depended on the whims of slumbering snake.

Inside Biden's COVID-19 Team

"A big part of what's lean gander is doing this week is being a spokesperson. Getting the biden. Message out about what they need and what they plan to do. The president-elect as talked about appealing to governors to try to enforce mask mandates it. Do you think those would make a difference because there are places like new york. Where you and i both live where those are in place and yet we've got big outbreaks in different communities. Well i think the key is that one how enforceable is a mandate to who is issuing the mandate. Is it somebody that these communities respect. Believe trust and i think that makes a national mandate both enforcement issues as well as the trust shoes very challenging. I do think you know a mandate coming from a governor. For example governor of south dakota that would be taken very differently would be received very differently by people in south dakota. Then if the president were issuing that same mandate should we have a national testing plan or has the boat sailed on that already so the current administration has actively discouraged. Testing has said oh. We're testing too much. That is definitely not what you're going to hear under the new administration if anything you're going to see a massive ramping up of testing and really trying especially in communities of color that have been really hard hit to make sure we have much better equity in access. But who's who's responsible for that. Is that this sort of patchwork we've got now of some state some cities. Some urgent cares or is it the federal government saying okay. We're doing widespread testing. Yeah this is the place where you're going to see. The federal government really stepping in one of the places where they could have a real impact is invoking the defense production act that would mean the federal government could compel manufacturers to crank up production. President trump has done this to a limited degree but the biden team wants to use the law. More broadly both with respect to personal protective equipment as well as scaling up production of test kits. So i i really do think we need a national plan here and that will include testing Not just people who have symptoms but people who have no symptoms expanding testing and encouraging mask. Mandates are things president-elect biden could do once. He takes office in january. That's two months from now. Normally an incoming administration would be getting information from the outgoing one. But selene says that's not happening. How much does president. Trump's refusal to concede and this sort of official transition being stuck in limbo. How much does that get in your way. Well that's a huge problem. We know historically that transitions are real period of vulnerability for the country in terms of national security. And that's whether that's a a foreign threat a terrorist threat or a threat like the corona virus and so that really could very well translate into americans dying unnecessarily to give you some examples of the kind of information we want and we can't get company gloves. do we have. How many syringes. Where are we in negotiating contracts with pharmaceutical companies with the logistics of delivery. Where are we in terms of developing databases to track who's gotten vaccinated who needs to be vaccinated. I mean those are things that are in a wait and boring nuts and bolts kind of stuff. But that's the stuff that you need to be able to plan a big response like this in terms of scaling affects nations even if the to really promising looking ones pfizer moderna if they are skilled up distribution. Is this huge challenge. How are you all thinking about vaccine distribution and getting it into the communities that that need it most so why you have to scale up. The this is where really moving forward with. The transition is really going to be important because we need to have a better understanding. What's happening on the inside with the pharmaceutical company capacity. And then once you've manufactured these doses how how do you distribute them in wear and some of that will depend on the characteristics of the vaccines. So you know the the pfizer vaccine needs to be deep-frozen minus seventy celsius. Well most family doctors. I don't know that any family doctors have the capacity to store a vaccine at that temperature. a lot of community hospitals will not have that kind of capacity either. And so what you're really looking at is having probably big academic hospital centers major health systems. Maybe pharmaceutical retail chains having central depots. Where they can do that kind of storage. But that means it's going to be harder to deliver that vaccine in particular to rural areas. So my guess is you're going to see the pfizer vaccine really targeted to urban areas. That have the capacity to deal with what we call that cold chain of freezing whereas the modern vaccine which is Which has less stringent temperature requirements in his relatively stable for a month at higher temperatures. You're going to see them journal. Vaccine probably prioritized for rural areas. And as you know a couple other vaccines emerged from the pipeline. You'll see further and further sort of targeting based on how easy it is to get those vaccines to those parts of the country. How effective those particular vaccines are for. Certain patient populations you know he might have pfizer here new york city and you might have maduna in rural wyoming listening to you. Describe the kind of logistics around that. I keep thinking about communities that have been particularly hard hit when we are talking about black and brown communities indigenous communities Ease there. I guess a painful chance that given the kind of medical infrastructure that some of these vaccines require that they're going to be doubly hit in the vaccine rollout process. Yeah this is something that we're really attentive to an it is a tricky one because there are issues a vaccine skepticism and hesitancy in some of these communities for good reason. And if you say we're going to prioritize communities of color for vaccination there will be a contingent of people who will say. Oh so we're going to be guinea pigs for this new vaccine so you have to address those very real concerns even while you are trying to prioritize because the fact is these are communities whether it's the navajo in the southwest or the south bronx here in new york city is their communities have been hit really hard and continue even now to be. Hit harder So we really do need to prioritize them if we're going to maximize the impact of the vaccines. We've been talking about trust. And i have to ask you about one of your colleagues on the advisory board Zeke emanuel who quite famously wrote an essay. saying he'd like to die at seventy five and that made a lot of people in the disability community really angry. How do you get their trust. I noticed the president-elect mentioned them specifically in his speech how do you their trust with him as a part of this group. Well i don't really want to speak to to zeke in particular but in terms of the disability community ron clean and i actually co hosted a podcast together. He had to step away for biden campaign. Were going to be the chief of staff. He's going to be the chief of staff for for President-elect biden and ron and i interviewed early on during the pandemic rebecca coakley. Who's with the center for american progress. Who is a disability rights. Activist really did listen to her concerns. Were really very much attentive to the needs of that community as well so we are taking notes. We are reaching out to people from the disability community to better understand what policies they need.

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS

"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer was asked on CNN's state of the union if she was concerned about the vice president being in her state. I didn't because, you know, we know that Joe Biden has been taken. This virus seriously has been following the science. The Trump Administration, on the other hand, has been misleading.

Back-to-school season kicks off this week, but laptops are sold out

Back-to-school season kicks off this week, but laptops are sold out

"Looking at the challenges of distance learning as the pandemic rolls on, and this week is kind of the official back to school kickoff for families and school districts getting ready for school has meant scrambling to find laptops kids to use at home, and there is a major shortage of low-cost laptops like chromebooks. It's a combination of the trade war with China and supply chains that have been disrupted by the pandemic but with millions of students starting school without the tech, they need to learn at home an education system that was already unequal is even more. So Jay Ganders, an analyst at Forrester. Here's for now it has been a case of delays especially for educational institutions right who have been told in some cases that they were going to receive models. And we're talking about thousands of laptops. By the beginning of the school at home period, and now they're saying, well, you may not get these until later in the school year and that's very problematic if the school district is expecting to supply the laptops to their students because then you're kind of stuck with what you have at home and not all students can afford or have access to a computer, and so when do we think this shortage might end if at all wonders? Well, what will happen next year you know is, is it? Going to go back and return to normal levels. So I think there's GonNa be trouble on the horizon as the companies that produce this try to reevaluate their Chinese supply chain can they relocate to other places or will there be new administration? For example, that makes that easier figuring out what they expect for demand what the budgets look like for schools there's so many variables at play and I would just say much like with toilet paper, right it was took some time to sort out the supply chain. A much more complicated supply chain well, and I want to get back to this idea of future demand because if we really do see a scenario where education changes in the long term. Then, all of a sudden schools become an even bigger market for portable devices. Right? Then they have been before. I. Think that's right. I mean I think The the proliferation of these devices on an individual basis for every child is not universal. We have a lot of classrooms where students actually share devices, which makes sense but when you have to send them home with the child, then that becomes a larger market. A. Lot depends on the course of the pandemic and how safety goes and how the numbers look, and of course, I'm not an epidemiologist. So I won't even try to figure that out. But let's say if we're persisting in a high state of pandemic. It means that there would be increased demand even into next year for new laptops because the schools simply don't have individual devices for every student, we've sort of honed in on laptops for the purposes of this conversation. If we start to see sort of like permanent remote become a reality will other form factors all in one PC's or just even desktops start to make a return. I think they could. Part of the issue though is that our houses have been filled with lots of remote people, right? So maybe parents. Maybe. Grandparents others simply a surplus of people in the household, and that means that a laptop has the advantage of flexibility being able to move to a different room I. Know a lot of the business meetings I have. You'll see someone's bed at background because they've been sort of banished to a bedroom. And the other problem here is that schools aren't going to be providing something like a desktop, right they need to provide something that's all in one very reportable and very easy. To use. Getting back to this idea of the inequality and that you know lower income students who can't afford a more expensive last because that might be available are being left out. What are the other devices if any are are filling the void? SMARTPHONES can fill part of the GAP certainly in Asia, we find a lot going on in this space where Chinese school children will get certain lessons over mobile. You can certainly do a zoom meeting over a mobile phone so you could participate in the classroom creation of content however, as opposed to consumption is going to be more challenging on a phone. There are schools that use tablets particularly ipads, but they will then require in cases for older kids an external keyboard and a stand, and that sort of thing. So the economics are not that easy. The bottom line is I think. For children who have less income in their families. The schools need to try to equip them with everything that they need on a turnkey basis.

National Amelia Earhart Day with Wade Roush

"Hey Paul it's weighed rouch. So July twenty fourth is National Amelia Earhart Day and I guess what I'm curious about is how Amelia herself would feel about the way she's remember today I mean it seems like she's famous mostly for disappearing into thin air and only secondarily for being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic which all seems Kinda backward to me. On the other hand, she's seen increasingly as a feminist icon which seems like might please her. So I'm just curious how historians and biographers think earhart would have regarded her own fame. Thanks. Wade given that I've never been confused for an historian. I'm one of those people that thinks about Erhard the way you've described above. So it's nice to be given a little nudge of history and hopefully I can return the favor. For my first recommendation, I, found a podcast called. Erhard which hopes to shed some more light on Earhart by interviewing guests. In this episode, they interview Abigail Harrison who is commonly known as astronaut. Abby. As part of the interview, Abby Talks about how a millionaire heart is an inspiration. They also talk about the marsh. And stem as well as our work as an aspiring actress not. Today's guest is weighed Roche host of the soonest podcast which helps us understand were technology come from and how we decide to start or stop using it. It's that understanding that allows us to be more intentional about the kind of future were building together. Soon Ish covers a lot of ground from bridges to virtual reality to the voting process. One episode that struck me though was way talking about quitting facebook, which is something I grapple with constantly On the episodes page description we'd outlines multiple years were facebook failed us and he finally had enough. Here in twenty twenty facebook continues to fail enlarge ways and I wish some of the tech support groups that I am a member of would find another service. So I could get off facebook myself. For last recommendation wait went above and beyond he's given three podcast recommendations and a youtube channel that are about the weird byways and. In no particular order they are. The. Constant. The right stuff the wrong way. Ninety nine percents, invisible gander international airport. Should this exist boom the return of supersonic flight. And Amy Sheera. Titles Youtube Channel VINCA space. A link to all of them will be in the show notes. For today's extra hot sauce. I just WanNa add that Wade is one of the creators of the Boston based podcast collective called hub-and-spoke. If you've been listening to this podcast since the beginning you'll know that Charles Gustin was my second guest ever who was the host of ICONOGRAPHY, which is part of hub and spoke.

Music video now was apparently dancing around and short skirt, skimpy outfits and Says Jay Z was not comfortable. He revealed on the nostalgia mix tape podcast that holds it called one of beyonce's assistance who then allegedly carried out his orders to clear all men from the set? Are you shocked to hear this? Do you feel Gysi was being a little overprotective I'm shocked to hear just because that's the opposite of how I would act if fiance was my partner. Like everybody, all these cool guys get in here. Check out how great she is the dancer. Check this out that she's in. How how lucky am I I'd be? I'd be more showing off. You know nothing about the community. And that is the. Way. People look at me and go. That guy knows about the hypocrisy's. Very naive answer, even bombie himself said Okay and he left because he totally understood. You WanNa know why because Bombay doesn't even trust me, so he totally understood dates. was onset, but means wife was on that. And this the thing like this is. He knew he was getting involved with someone else in the music industry. He knew he was getting involved with someone who was successful was going to have to do. Music Videos and tours, and also Jay Z has the skimpy women in his videos he's had. Women in hot tubs. Women dance flipping around all around him. So this to me if it is true, because this is only from be is was very insecure on his part in this was way back then, but I just feel like if it was good for the Goose Gander, I? Do think that like there are people out there. Men and women who like a partner who kind of has that controlling vibe I don't get it personally. Maybe on to actually was flattered that Jay Z did that I thought that's coming from a toxic place. Like even if you're saying that you, you know you want that I just feel like. Like as as a businesswoman, you should be able to conduct yourself and your partner should trust you that this is a this is fantasy. This isn't a real thing. He had his wife there. This is a business transaction assistance. We're their camera people. If this is a true story, this really shows like what Growth Jay Z. has gone through from then to now because that type of behavior was completely toxic, I think of the I think Jay Z. Trust beyond, say one hundred percent. I think he doesn't trust all the guys out there watching I. Don't know I just don't agree with someone coming in and taking charge she was.

How An Early Plan To Spot The Virus Fell Weeks Behind

"The government's missed opportunity for surveillance of the crow bias. What slowed scientists down and the loss time that could have been used to give some cities an earlier warning. You're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Lawrence so it least. Six cities were supposed to be using surveillance systems that were originally built for the flu to test for cases of the Corona virus weeks into that effort. Only one had done that. So where's a good place to start? Let's start in Los Angeles. They ran into some issues back in February. They knew that tracking the outbreak through the number of positive cases that were popping up. Just wasn't a great idea. Because testing was so limited right in order to get tested at that time you had to either recently traveled to China or had close contact with somebody else who tested so. It was like a really high bar to get tested. Yeah and that was because almost no state labs could run the CDC's corona virus tests at the time they had sent out faulty test. Kits see no even patients with the right symptoms. Really couldn't get a test. Which makes it really hard to see. What's happening in a community but for this project the surveillance cities they were guaranteed testing by the CDC and they could send their samples to the agency's headquarters in Atlanta. So how did Los Angeles Start? Looking for the corona virus so county health officials starting talking to hospitals about testing these mildly symptomatic patients. You know and they got pretty far with one of them Dr Prabhu Gander of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. He told me when the hospital's board discussed it though they declined to be part of it we only had one confirmed cove in nineteen case in La County and they were concerned that if the second case in La County was linked to this hospital. That there'd be a certain stigma that would potentially be bad for the hospital. Okay so they were worried about the hospital's reputation. Do I have that right? Yeah and he says. The hospital was concerned that patients would be anxious and avoid the hospital if they found the corona virus there now county. Health officials declined to name this hospital because they said they agreed to keep discussions confidential. Well okay so how did L. A? Eventually get testing started. Another hospital reached out to county health officials and that was La County USC Medical Center the Chief Medical Officer. There is Dr Brad Spell Berg. And he knew surveillance monitoring was important. This is a leading edge indicator. If you don't look at it you're missing the Canary in the coalmine. You're waiting for the coal mine to collapse on you. Yes Spielberg wanted to do this. But his hospital into one of the biggest issues in this story of the pandemic testing to speed things up they were gonNA use tests from a private lab but there was only a small number of them. That was against huge resistance. The whole system is like you're wasting our tests. Don't do this. But his hospital pushed ahead and began testing at the county's Medical Center and some of its clinics on March twelfth. When the results started coming back it looked as if five percent of the patients they tested positive for corona virus. Bruce People that had been going to work going to social events wandering around in the community for the days and days. They have the right. This was well before we had broad social distancing policies. Yeah we didn't have that almost anywhere in the country at the time but once officials in La county new this you know they realize that people have been walking around with the virus more of them that they knew and this was a really key turning point in how they responded until then it was about trying to contain the virus. Us contact tracing to track down every person who may have been exposed you know but one of viruses spreading undetected epidemiologists will tell you that containment strategy just isn't enough so in the days after those results Mayor Eric. Garcetti issued a stay at home order for Los Angeles your actions matter and they can and will save lives. Okay so that's what happened in L. A. What happened in those five other cities most of them also struggled to get going? You know for example. New York City didn't get results from its sentinel testing until March thirty first. I couldn't get more information about why it took so long. You know the city is obviously overwhelmed right now but at that point the surveillance was too late to be useful. I mean there are already forty thousand cases at that time. Yeah not exactly an early warning at that point and you know Seattle also had struggles Washington state officials had an idea of how they want to do a sentinel surveillance when they first started talking to. Cdc One of the things. I propose very early was that we use samples from Seattle lose steady. Scott Linquist is the state epidemiologist. He wanted to use the Seattle flu study. Which is a research project that was already testing people with respiratory symptoms surveillance? That was up and running. My point was why. Don't we use those samples? It's up and running. Let's do it and that was denied the problem according to the CDC and FDA was that it was a research project and it didn't have the necessary approvals to run clinical tests for patients and they hadn't gotten consent from the patients to do the corona virus testing so the FDA denied the request at that time. Okay actually make some sense to me so was Seattle able to get anything together eventually. Yes about a month after that the Seattle flu studied did get all the necessary approvals. And they're doing testing now but linguists thinks they clearly could have used it earlier. Could've let us know that it was here before we had the community outbreaks and transmission in the long term care facilities but We miss that period so okay. This effort came up short to say the least. These were weeks when we could have been looking for the virus but the system itself didn't work those extra weeks had to have made a difference right. Well it's to say recognize situation where we been passed as wanted to. That's Dr Joseph Z. A deputy incident manager at the CDC said the delays happened because it was an entirely new virus. It took extra. Planning for collecting samples shipping them ensuring healthcare workers had protective gear. But whether that time made any difference question about whether this revolt we delay APP on longer. resulted in losing visibility. In those half thing and it's and I don't think so. Three weeks is an enormous amount of time to allow cases to accumulate without knowing about it. That's Jennifer nozoe an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. If it has sentinel surveillance stood up in A number of cities cities where we would expect to see cases. I We possibly could have caught it earlier and possibly intervened before the case numbers exploded. And you know when you look at the data. It's not hard to see that. The places with earlier state home orders seem to have done better there curves are flatter and they avoided a lot of the hospitalizations and deaths according to models. It really wasn't easy for officials to issue those orders. You know if you remember. There was a lot of debate about when to do it. But from talking to these cities the ones that had this hard data from Sentinel surveillance community spread was happening. They were able to act. I write so okay. Obviously this a very useful public health tool does the CDC have any plans to do this in the future. Yes a number of the cities and counties I spoke to are planning on starting sentinel testing again soon because you know as the outbreak starts waning. They're going to need to find the flare ups and spot the new cases before it spreads even more the trump administration is also talking about using it in their plan for reopening the country. So we'll be doing sentinel surveillance throughout nursing. Homes throughout inner city federal clinics throughout indigenous populations to really be able to find early alerts of symptomatic individuals in the community. Dr Deborah Brooks is talking about doing that testing for people who don't show any symptoms but who may still be infected and spreading the virus the epidemiology. I spoke to said you know this is something the country has to get right. This time. You know not just waiting for cove in nineteen cases to walk into an emergency room but designing studies to go out and looking communities and actually get the early warnings that this kind of testing could have provided in the first place.

Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction

Searching for Treatments

"First let's talk about how our government officials are describing a drug called chloroquine. This has been something that's been around for many years. Been phenomenon strong powerful drug for malaria. But we think it might work on. This chloroquine is used to treat malaria and has been around for decades but it has not been approved as a treatment for the corona virus. Here's C. N. N.'s medical analysts and infectious disease specialist. Dr Selene Gander. This is not a slam dunk. This is early promising research. But that doesn't mean this is GonNa work. The president also tweeted over the weekend. That a related drug hydroxy chloroquine in combination with an antibiotic commonly known as Z pack. Could become game changers. This is largely based on a small study in France that excluded some people who either left the hospital stopped taking the drug due to side effects or got worse including one person who died. We still don't have enough evidence that these drugs are effective in humans. That's why in some states. They are beginning to experiment. Hydroxy chloroquine which the president speaks about his optimistic about and we hope for optimistic results. Also were actually starting back today. That's New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. He recently announced that the state had procured thousands of doses of chloroquine hydroxy chloroquine and would begin trials. Starting Tuesday the state will begin testing another experimental treatment using the plasma of people who have recovered. It's called convalescent. Serum what it does is it takes the plasma from a person who has been infected with the virus processes the plasma and injects the antibodies into a person who is sick. The other drug name being floated around is an antiviral called. Ramda's Aveer it's already been tested on adults diagnosed with the krona virus in the United States and China director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr Robert Redfield discuss trimmed reservoir in congressional testimony earlier this month. We're GONNA know probably by April whether that drug works or not and that's important because that's a drug that can save lives if it works. Gilead Sciences which manufacturers Davir is pulling back on emergency requests for the drug due to overwhelming demand. The company is instead focusing. Its efforts on giving out the drug in clinical trials hoping to prove its effectiveness against Kovic. Nineteen I want to reiterate that we don't know how effective any of these treatments will be while a number of patients have already received drugs like chloroquine and Rim desert. It's too early to know how much of an impact the drugs actually had. That's why doctors are conducting studies in the United States China. And all over the world to better understand what happens when you give these drugs to a covert patient. Getting the results could take months. And in the meantime we have to be careful about creating false hope. A man in Arizona has died. After ingesting. Chloroquine phosphate believing that it would prevent him from contracting virus. Banner Health a company that operates acute care. Hospitals released a statement on Monday confirming that a man in Arizona had died. After taking a form of chloroquine used to clean aquariums. His wife is currently in critical care. Nbc News spoke to the wife who said they learned of the drugs connection to corona virus during a news conference on TV in Nigeria. Health officials issued a warning about chloroquine saying three people overdosed on the drug after hearing it described as a possible treatment. I can't stress enough. How vital it is that you don't use or consume anything unless specifically recommended by your doctor. You are likely to soon hear other drug names mentioned as well Nevin Creggan. A senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology in San Francisco worked on a study published last weekend that identified sixty nine existing drugs that could be tested against the corona virus in total. We identified three hundred thirty two proteins talking to or connected to the corner viral proteins and we identified a sixty nine different drugs and compounds that are known to target at least one of these three hundred thirty two a proteins and this corresponds to twenty seven different. Fda approved drugs and the remaining are in clinical or preclinical. Trials Croghan said testing out drugs. That are already. Fda approved could drastically speed up the process of finding a treatment that is safe and effective for humans. And then there's the prospect of a vaccine experts. Say One wouldn't be ready this year. Vaccine Trials take months or years in order to be proven safe and effective for humans and there are multiple stages of those trials but Grogan is optimistic that the global response from scientists now will set a precedent for getting to a solution faster in the future for me. I would argue. That will be seen as a new carradine of how to do science. And I hope we're setting up an infrastructure here that could be beneficial not just for covert nineteen but for the future for covert twenty two Kobe. Twenty four or whatever virus comes online over the next several years and they will be coming our best protection for now social distancing washing our hands looking out for ourselves and our loved ones trying to help out wherever we can and behaving like we might have the virus.

You Can Tour This Banjo Museum Without Getting Up From Your Couch

"For more than fifteen years Boston area filmmaker mark fields has been on a quest to capture and share the story the banjo he's assembled more than three hundred hours of original video and piles of research that's the fuel for his new banjo museum you don't need to leave the couch to visit as Andrea que of member station W. B. O. R. reports mark fields production team as wiring up collector Jim Bowman and his rare eighteen fifty eight Fangio testing one two three four Warren Bowman's artifact field home just outside Boston it's a place that I came to when I first started this project and realize how much there is about the banjo which people don't know about in which people should know about that's it feels he says Bowman's trove of two hundred plus instruments and Gander related stuff is a portal into America's social history and Bowman is happy to share it with a lot more people the whole fuddy Duddy and being electronically challenged all my information is on three by five cards in the collection and yet he can bring that to the digital age for wrong so what was what I'm gonna play a tune called Vance's song which was written about double Vance who lose you'll recall a legend of West Virginia okay we're gonna back in his office in nearby Emerson College fields leads the tour and his digital museum in the making called the banjo project it includes interactive timelines archival footage of famous players and dynamic displays of the instruments themselves field zooms in on one photographed in three hundred and sixty degrees you can look at the detail all the way down to the grain of the wood the brackets the hardware then with the click of his mouse fields does what would be alarm tripping in most museums he flips the banjo over so we can see the maker signature on its back the banjo project traces the instrument's history from its African origins to the present day do interviews with historians makers and such contemporary performers as Rhiannon Giddens cofounder of the Carolina chocolate drops there's so much history in this music yeah is not the good stuff and then some of them had stuff is the banjos rolling the minstrel era from the mid eighteen hundreds through the early twentieth century all right let's face it the whole American entertainment industry was founded on the minstrel show for better or for worse that's a good starting place for understanding a lot of things that happened since then field says white minstrel entertainers coopted the banjo donned blackface and created caricatures of slaves and their music that entered for decades on the site no musicologists Gregory Adams elaborates you can't talk about the history of the band if you can't talk about racism slavery misogyny appropriation exploitation all of the things that run counter to what we love about the danger but the instrument was also with tool for liberation as scholar rex Ellis of the national museum of African American history and culture points out in the banjo project he reflects on the life of Gus cannon who was born on a Mississippi plantation and went on to write a song in the nineteen twenties that would become a pop hit nearly half a century later so when the band show not only becomes something that he can express himself with it also becomes something and the dancer was also a ticket to a more independent life for child performer Lotta Crabtree says the banjo projects mark fields she was known for never having married wearing trousers on stage smoking cigarettes and playing the banjo and she became a nineteenth century superstar much to the surprise of project manager Sean Clark he's been working with fields for more than a decade the first time I saw a woman who is playing the banjo the first I saw it black banjo player that was a challenge to the stereotypes that I have assisted with the instrument of course the banjo project include such bluegrass stars as role Scruggs and Ralph Stanley who mark

"A wider distribution then came cable and the invention of twenty four hour cable news and now we had a whole new problem suddenly we had to find a way to fill up twenty four hours of news time every single day when your newspapers radio programs television programs they would curate the most important news stories because you know you had a limited amount of space and order time but with twenty four hours suddenly time was not as big of a problem in fact it was the opposite problem how do you fill it all up then we get to the internet which the twenty four hour cable news channels also always on and much of the business that is on the Internet relies on doing few things and they're all related and this is not gonna come as news to any of you but I wanna lay it out so business on the Internet if that's in fact where you are are really dependent upon generating revenue as the Internet itself you want to attract as many sets of eyeballs as possible get as many people to visit your website as you possibly can you want to keep those eyeballs on the company's web pages as much as possible so you don't want people bouncing off and leaving and as a consequence you also want to serve up has many ads to those eyeballs as possible because that's generally how most web based businesses are generating their revenue You know obviously I've got other businesses like retail that use the web as a portal to shop the inventory of the retail store but for anything that's specifically dependent upon the web itself revenue that's generally held this works unless you're doing a subscription model and all of these things I just mentioned contribute it's too ad revenue so yeah I know again I'm starting with the obvious and that if you didn't know this already probably had noticed it at the very least but this is why you find so many webpages that take kind of irritating approaches like though create a gallery or slide show approach which forces you to click on the next button in to generate another page view so rather than just lay it all out in one page where you can just scroll through and read everything they're clicking over and over again well those clicks count as pages news which helped the company that makes the webpage market it to advertisers or the websites that are designed for me double that just have super long articles that scroll and Scroll and Scroll you might get a picture a line of text in an ad and then you'll get another picture a line of text and another ad and then you finally get around to finding the point where the article actually tells you the headline was claiming at the top and that's not even really touching on the whole concept of Click Bait in which a title and thumbnail image are carefully curated to get as many he clicks as possible sometimes with no regard as to whether or not the final webpage actually reflects whatever the original promise was of the title and the thumbnail and one of the consequences of all this data around us coupled with the various methods companies are using to get our attention means we don't tend spend a Lotta time actually you know attending to anything we can't instead our attention drifts over data point after data point meanwhile we've got a limitation on how much we trust information sources so skillful manipulators take all of this into account when designing approach to manipulate the public the executive summary of the report lays out the scale of the problem right away and according to the researchers there were uncovered instances of governments or political parties using social media manipulation in twenty eight countries in two thousand seventeen a year later the number of countries had grown to forty eight and this year twenty nineteen the number of countries in which at least one political party if not the government itself is using social media for manipulation purposes is at seventy countries the researchers also point out this doesn't necessarily mean the number of countries with governmental agents he's using misinformation online is doubling year-over-year part of the increase maybe do not to more countries doing this but rather are growing awareness and ability to detect social manipulation so it's not just that more people are using these techniques though that seems like it's a pretty safe bet yet but also that we're getting better at detecting them so in places where it may once have been overlooked we now know about it so and again it's just that our our tool set has gotten better so that's also contributing to this growing number and listing all the countries of those seventy would be pretty tedious but pretty much every when you would expect to be there is there that includes the United States and the United Kingdom it also includes Russia and China other countries on the list include India Greece the Czech Republic Nigeria North Korea Pakistan Brazil Cambodia Saudi Arabia South Africa vein and many many more so the researchers were casting a broad net around the globe in this study much of that focus has been on how admits use social platforms to manipulate things within their own borders so in other words domestic concerns but the researchers also found some reports about foreign influence operations or attempts to manipulate people who are living in other countries entirely now this focus was more zero than the overall domestic focus because it's a challenge to get a handle on how frequently this foreign influence operations stuff is happening because platforms like twitter and facebook have either limited the investigations into such things or the reporting of any findings they've had has been pretty limited for example those platforms have at least in their reporting limited all their actions against campaigns that originated in just seven countries though seven being China India Iran Pakistan Russia Saudi Arabia and Venezuela and to be clear we're talking about just the stuff the researchers were able to find I think it's safe to say they're probably instances of this that have yet to be uncovered and some countries they didn't have time to look into thoroughly there are one hundred ninety five countries in the world or one hundred ninety three if you only go with countries recognized by the United Nations so this is a really big deal seventy out of one hundred ninety five that's a significant now this episode I'm going to go through the report with you guys to talk about what they found and what it all means and maybe think about what we might do to protect ourselves and those around us from being manipulate needed a bad news there's not a whole lot we can do on an individual basis but we'll get there now part of what makes this all chat Alan Jing is that the internet is an exactly the same all across the world as you guys know I live in the United States then despite a few attempts to shut down access servers that were hosting pirated media because corporations have enormous sway in the United States Internet access in the states is largely unfettered so essentially if it's out there you can access it in the United States this is an over generalization but you get the media there are other countries that restrict to one degree or another that sort of access in China for example there is the famous great firewall of China the term describes not just the technology used but the political policies in China the restrict citizens access to the Internet state-approved sites and services are fine they can access those the Chinese government subjects other stuff too heavy censorship or just blocks outright controlling information is one way to maintain control over population and China is one of the most obvious examples of that happening today another one would we North Korea one of the big developments in two thousand nineteen saw China get more involved in foreign influence operations previously nearly all the China's propaganda efforts were confined to China itself and its strict control over Internet access to its citizens but in two thousand nineteen with the rise of public demonstrate nations and protests in Hong Kong the country began to initiate misinformation campaigns on social media to attempt to undermine public support for Hong Kong casting the protesters as lawless violent the researchers state that there's no reason to assume China will stop using social media in an effort to shaped public understanding of things that are of importance to the country so we'll probably see that country continue its foreign influence operations now a lot of countries fall between these extremes I've just laid out and you could also argue that neither the US nor China are truly on the very opposite ends of the spectrum but that's the way they're often portrayed now for the purposes of the report the researchers decided to focus only on cases in which there was a clear mandate from Vermont or political party to initiate the manipulation this is important to distinguish because there may be many cases in which hackers activists companies subcultures or other groups of people could act on their own without the explicit permission or mandate of a government or political party in cases like those the ideologies and the goals of the group and the government just happened to align but there's no explicit direction from the state to commit any acts so you may remember that in the wake of the massive two thousand fourteen cyber attack on Sony which involved the theft of a ton of calm on financial information within the company a hacker group called the Guardians of peace claimed responsibility and while the hacker groups goals were in line with those of North Korea as a whole the country of North Korea maintained it had not directed any hackers to go after Sony if that were the case which is still a matter of dispute then it would be an example of what I was saying earlier so the report would focus only on stories that link back to official government or critical agencies and not campaigns from apparent independent groups that just happened to align with those governments okay so those are the basics when we come back I'll talk more about specifics in the report but first let's take a quick break today I want to talk to you about Caserta by Lutron smart lighting

"If you've been along this far go ahead and check this out stewart yeah flavor is the key i mean i said it last week i'm not expecting oscars i know the actresses and played this role have won them but this is not going to get anyone a statue its formula what you want is for it to not feel impersonal that's what i begged after cradle of life do this again give me some flavor and that's exactly what they've done they've given a thoughtful remake of the first movie calculated so that it makes a lot more sense there's a premium placed on logic and give us an action star who is more than a maxim pin up or a fast and furious groupie she's a real person thrust into impossible circumstances and she survives i mean i do think the daddy reconnection story line is boring but if they make another one they're not going to do it and i think it's better than what voight and jolie did and so i won't dig the movie too hard for that it will change your life but it will pass the time nicely and i'm just grateful in this retrospective where it has been scarlet red arrows that i could fire one upwards and say mild recommend this is clearly the best tomb raider movie ever not saying whole lot and and lisa von gander did tremendous i believed every bit of her agony and struggle and bleeding and fighting and stealth thing and pain i went with her when she was happy doing the fox hunt i went with her what she was agonisingly drowning a man and i went with her at the end when she realizes the diplo city she is a really good lara croft but in the end this movie is similar to what justice at before it's right there with some of the better resident evil's in that it's perfectly competent action but there's nothing special you're about the resident evil movies has a bit more special with the tack and the zombies here trinity feels like another name for brel and the action was really good except for some of the green screen that was two obvious in the two d but it wasn't special and i feel like the candor both in her jason bourne film and here.
