Freedom Has Been Thrown out the Window With Vaccine Mandates
"Learned this weekend that there are christian colleges requiring vaccine proof to attend and i thought to myself. This is christian. Overtly christian colleges by ola was mentioned. I thought what world have we entered when the basic ideas of freedom have been thrown out the window. There is so much fear. I mean again. I didn't mean to talk about covert but it's almost funny to me. People act as though it's the bubonic plague it's polio. It's something i i know. So many people who've had it and recovered quickly and yet we have christian colleges kind of participating in this because their idea of freedom doesn't seem to it just doesn't seem to reach into these things and i think that's part of the cancel cultures that people don't really have the they don't have the The american values Deepen them where they understand. We can't do this. We can't do that but it has entered the churches. I could give other examples where people are wishy washy. They don't really know what they believe. They go along to get along. I'm absolutely against vaccines. I mean i read recently. And you don't know what to believe and i haven't had a chance to research at the twelve. Thousand people have died from the vaccine. I had very very mild case of covert that a guide on on an airplane. Some when i got absolutely exhausted and ran down my immune system. But i was better in two days so now i have the immunity. You know for me. I say people can make a decision. They should have control over their own body. They ought to be able to decide. I'm concerned that the government is just imposing everything. They're using health to try to push regulations on us that before they would not have gotten away with. This is not the blue bonnet plague when it first happened. We didn't know but within a week or two we could tell it was bad but it didn't even come close to be that bad. In fact as it goes through the population the death rate is really very very small and and the people who die probably would've died. A lot of them are very old they would have died within a matter of months of something else

She is also known. As the blood countess lady dracula and the blood lady of qatif ish. She's been given countless nicknames. Just based on what she was suspected of doing and i use the word suspected in h.

She was frequently ill and she would reportedly go into fits of white hot rage on a dime. Very little is actually known about her childhood but the urban legend and myth has seemingly just multiplied taken on a life of its own throughout the years.

Reflecting on the Tokyo Games
"Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo didn't happen without serious controversy, many questioning whether the games should have gone on at all. Given Japan's low vaccination rate, and the numbers of people who have been infected with coronavirus, ABC is Kenneth Martin is covered pretty much every corner of the Olympics while in Tokyo. And he offered his thoughts on Friday, just as the games were beginning to wrap up, Ken, you were there for a lot of the most dramatic moments of these Olympics. What's your take this year? What a year? I mean the masks the pandemic. Simone Biles, give us a rundown sherry. It's something that we've never seen before. A delayed plagued Olympics and I actually said, expect the unexpected when it came to these Olympics because We didn't know when we landed here in Tokyo. What was going to happen? We knew when it came to Covid protocols. They were pretty strict. I couldn't go out into public spaces. I couldn't walk on the sidewalks. I couldn't eat in restaurants, which is really tough for me. You know me Sherry. So when it came to what we saw here, I don't think I'll ever experience anything like it again. What were the most exciting moments do you think of of these delayed Olympics? Simone Biles was the biggest story of these Olympics, I think, and that's because all eyes were on this young woman who we had such high expectations. And she came in here and we were expecting so much. And then she said, No, I'm having an issue. I'm going to work on myself. I don't care if billions of people are watching me. My mental health comes first. And then, when she was ready, she decided to get back on the horse or balance beam. She delivered a solid routine and walked away with an Olympic medal. And what we saw is other athletes talking about mental health. So during the press conferences after a lot of these athletes competed. The American ones were asked about Simone Biles asked about mental health and they really opened up. They had honest conversations, and for many

"plague" Discussed on The Anthropocene Reviewed
"Stanway, the towns popular former minister who'd been ejected for puritanism on a plan to contain the spread of the plague by self isolating the entire village. A nineteenth century chronicler of eames history wrote that mom pederson was certain that he could prevail on his suffering and our lead diminishing flock to confine themselves within the precincts of the village if they could be supplied with visuals and. Articles and thereby prevent the pestilence from spreading. Now before enacting this plan to isolate village some people leave him and others including hasn't and his wife Catherine Center children away to escape the plague but undermine peasants leadership. The village did eventually decide to coordinate itself off from the rest of the world. They also agreed to hold church services outdoors to retain some measure of social distancing and they decided that each family when possible would bury their own dead.

"plague" Discussed on The Anthropocene Reviewed
"And indeed around the plague world, the stories do become repetitive. We read for instance that the corpses lay in the streets of Florence and overwhelmed the graveyards of France and choke the Nile River in Egypt chroniclers also focused on the suddenness of it. All one day a single none is sick within a week her whole community is dead. and. Much attention was also paid to how the rituals around death changed the bells no longer tolled for the dead because they would toll without ceasing. And Anyway. As one writer put it the sick hated to hear them and to discourage the healthy as well. But for me, the most gutting repetition in plague accounts is the abandonment of the ill who were often left to die alone due to fear of contagion. Many centuries later, CS Lewis would right after his wife died. Nobody ever told me grief felt so like fear. But to in pandemic is to both grieve and fear for fear of infection. One writer noted, no doctor will visit the sick nor will the father visit the son, the mother, the daughter, or the brother to brother. And thus, an unaccountable number of people died without any mark of affection piety or charity. In the Byzantine capital of Constantinople Dimitrios. Kaidonis wrote fathers do not dare to bury their own sons. And so in fear of death and hope of survival many left the ill to die alone. To do otherwise was to risk your own life and the lives of whatever loved ones you had left. The black death was vastly incalculably different from our current pandemic. It was orders of magnitude deadlier and far less understood. But infectious disease continues to separate us in our most vulnerable moments too many of us sick and healthy are alone too many are dying apart from those. They love saying goodbye over video chat or a telephone line. In, the New England Journal of Medicine One physician wrote of a wife watching her husband die over facetime. And I think maybe that is the real reason I cannot stop reading about pandemics at the moment. I am haunted by that separation. When I was sixteen, a friend of mine guide and they died alone which I found very. I couldn't stop thinking about those last minutes those lonely and helpless minutes. I still often have nightmares about this where I can see this person and see the fear in their eyes, but I cannot get to them before they die. And at a time when we are separated from each other and especially where the sick must be separated from the healthy to prevent disease transmission. So many people are dying and grieving while separated. I know that being with someone as they die doesn't necessarily lessen the pain and in some cases can amplify.

Hello and welcome to the anthrocene reviewed a podcast where we review different facets of the human centered planet on a five star scale. I'm John Green and today I'll be reviewing historical outbreaks of Mubarak and pneumonic plague because you know I wanNA, keep it light and fun around here. The other day in the midst of a global disease pandemic, I called my pharmacy to refill my Murtaza's prescription. Murtaza's bean is a tetris cyclic anti-depressant medication that is also used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, and in my case, it is pretty mission critical. So anyway, I called my pharmacy only to learn that my pharmacy had closed. So then I called a different pharmacy and very sympathetic woman answered when I explained the situation she told me that everything would be fine, but they didn't need to call my doctor's office before. The prescription she asked when I needed to pick up the medication and I answered well, I guess in a perfect world I'd pick it up this afternoon. And then there was a pause on the other end of the line before finally a stifling a laugh the woman said, well, Hun, this ain't a perfect world. And then she put me on hold while talking to the pharmacist except she didn't really put me on hold. She just put the phone down and I heard her say to her colleague he said get this. He said in a perfect world he'd pick it up today. Anyway, in the end, I was able to pick up the prescription, the following afternoon and when I did. So the woman behind the counter pointed at me and said, it's the perfect world, Guy? and. So here I am the perfect world guy back to regale you with a tale of the anthropoid seen the best of all possible geologic ages in this. The Best of all possible worlds, it's a story about the human capacity for cruelty. But also for sacrifice and compassion. It's a plague story at the moment I can't tell any other kind. In the past three months I've read about almost nothing except for pandemics, we often hear that we live in unprecedented times. But what worries me is that these times feel quite precedent for humans being an uncharted territory is often news because our chartered territory is so riddled with disease and injustice and violence. and. Maybe I've been reading about all that charted territory because I'm scared of going back to it and looking for ways to avoid it. Between the years of thirteen, forty, seven and thirteen, fifty, one perhaps half of all humans living in Europe died of the related diseases, bubonic and new plague bacterial infections spread by fleas, and also in some cases from one person to another what was then usually called the mortality or the pestilence is now known as the black death and this torrent of plague also devastated Asia North Africa and the Middle East. The Egyptian historian McCreevy wrote that the pestilence did not distinguish between one region and another. Hometown of Cairo was the world's largest city outside of China in thirteen forty with a population of around six, hundred thousand. But at least a third of Cairo's residents died in an eight month period beginning in the summer of thirteen forty eight, the famous world traveller been Tuta reported that at the height of the pestilence in the city of Damascus twenty, four hundred people died every day. Too many it felt like the end of humanity had arrived the Muslim historian even Khaldoon wrote that it felt as if the voice of existence in this world had called out for oblivion. In Christian communities, the devastation was seen as more final and total than even the great flood. The chroniclers of Padova wrote that at least in the days of Noah God did not destroy all living souls and it was possible for the human race to recover. This statistics truly boggles the mind cities from Paris to London to Hamburg saw most of their residents died from the plague and resulting systemic collapses in Dubrovnik. The was so unrelenting that the government ordered every citizen to fill out a will. In Florence City of over one hundred, thousand people. One recent estimate concluded that about eighty percent of the city's population died in a four-month period. In Ireland amongst name John Clinton described life as quote waiting amid death for death to come. Near the end of his blade journal Clinton wrote. So that the writing does not perish with the writer or the work fail with the Workman I leave extra parchment for continuing the work in case, anyone should still be alive in the future. Beneath that paragraph, a brief CODA appears in different handwriting. Here it seems the author died. In Florence Giovanni, Villani wrote of the pestilence many lands and cities were made desolate and the plague lasted until. And then he left a blank space that was never filled in because he died of the plague before the plague ended. To read about the black death is to glimpse how it may end with our species in Wyoming and despair and also. -able hope the kind of hope that makes you. We've sentences unfinished and extra parchment in your book in case, anyone should still be alive in the future. As William Faulkner once put it. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure that when the last Ding Dong of doom has claimed didn't faded from the last worthless rock hanging tied with in the last red and dying evening that even then there will still be one more sound that of his puny inexhaustible voice still talking. Faulkner. went on to argue that humans will not merely endure, but we'll prevail. But these days that feels a little bit ambitious to me. I for one would be delighted merely to endure. The historian, Rosemarie Horrex, the black death, the very enormity of the disaster drove chroniclers to take refuge in cliches. The same comments appear in chronicle after chronicle..

"Closed. The Chamber of Commerce in Mountain also had organized the Sanitary Brigade to help conduct house to house inspections and searches in the city that effort. Apparently went better as all of this was going on China, ask for other nations to send medical experts to Manchuria, both to help control the outbreak antiques, study the disease. To American doctors, Richard P strong and Oscar teague were in the Philippines and they were among the ones who arrived in. Manchuria. Their focus was more on study than on control since autopsies were so taboo. They focused their work on unclaimed unidentified bodies conducting twenty five autopsies that contributed enormously to the understanding of pneumonic plague researchers also tried to confirm whether the target and. And marmot really had played a part in this epidemic, but their research at that point was hampered by the fact that these animals hibernate in the winter like they could go try to find some that were hibernating. But that still wasn't gonNA really help them determine whether whether like that was not a real world scenario. So what it had been like back in November. Studies conducted later on, though did confirm that these marmots can contract pneumonic plague in the can spread it from one to another. So it seems likely that the first case of plague in this epidemic was contracted from a Marmot, but that's not likely something that will ever be proved for certain. The last new case of pneumonic plague in Harbin was reported on March first. First nineteen eleven with scattered cases elsewhere being reported over the following weeks in April of nineteen eleven. China outlawed ptarmigan hunting as the plague was winding down. The first international play conference was convened in Mukden, from April third to twenty eighth in. This was the first international conference of its kind to be held in. China. Was Conference involved a whole lot of like in. International drama. Russia's delegation was primarily made up of military people which China took as an implied threat to try to take over more territory at first Japan announced that it was going to boycott the conference altogether apparently because it felt like it was being upstaged by China. Japan did ultimately sent five delegates though in the end, the delegates at the conference past forty five resolutions as recommendations for the Chinese government on public health and plague prevention, and another thing to come out of this conference was the establishment of the north. Manchurian, plague prevention service, which we will talk about more in a moment. By the time, the international play conference came to a close the pneumonic plague epidemic in Manchuria was essentially over. Official Records Document forty-three thousand nine hundred seventy two cases of pneumonic plague and one survivor although because migrant laborers and trappers may not have been listed on official tallies, some estimates are as high as sixty thousand deaths since cases were clustered in railroad towns, the death tolls in those communities. Br Tremendous. If you look at the like the percentage of deaths like death as a percentage of the whole population. Like that number seems small, but that's because it's spread out of the whole population, of Manchuria, and not just as railroad towns. It is really not clear whether this outbreak was brought under control through medical intervention or whether it wow. Nd down through other factors, the way bubonic plague outbreaks Manchuria seemed to be cyclical and temporary, but it is clear that efforts to stop traffic along the railroads and established sanitary cordons. Round cities generally keep people from travelling that kept the disease from spreading much beyond Manchuria the creation of the. The. North Manchurian plague prevention service was one of the last formal acts of the Ching. Dynasty before the Chinese Revolution of Nineteen Eleven, which overthrew the Imperial Dynasty and established a Republic of China. The Plague Service started its work on October first nineteen twelve under the new Republican government. Sometimes, the North Manchurian plagued prevention service as described as China's first public health agency, but that's not entirely true. When we have talked about public health reform on this show before we've generally been talking about the US or the UK where typically philanthropists or medical professionals or sometimes just really enthusiastic lay people have done everything from creating new programs themselves to advocating for change at the government level. But Chinese public health followed precedent that had been set in Germany and Japan where the first public health efforts were part of the police. China had established a police based. Public. Health. Service in Nineteen Oh two in the Ministry of Police established in nineteen o five included sanitary department. These officers carried out health and sanitation directives, quarantine enforcement, and infection control procedures. China was still implementing police sanitary departments in cities by the time, the epidemic started, and there wasn't one in Manchuria yet. So it is true that the North Manchurian plague prevention service was the first public health service in northeastern China and many of its efforts were still connected to policing the quarantine. Established were modeled after prisons with patients being described using the same general language as would be used for prisoners. Conversely, it is absolutely true that this plague outbreak and the North Manchurian plague prevention services had a huge role in the development of medicine and public health in China. The Chinese government quickly recognized the role of Western medicine in treating and preventing contagious diseases. During all this, it also started to adopt the general idea that the government had a responsibility to protect Public Health William. Do was a major part of this process. He helped found the National Medical Association, in China. In Nineteen Fifteen, he service secretary that year and then as president from Nineteen Sixteen to Nineteen twenty, he helped establish hospitals including six isolation. Isolation hospitals that operated under the plague prevention service. He also helped found the National Medical Journal of China and became the first Chinese person to publish an article in the Lancet is published work in the field of medicine included co-authoring a massive history of Chinese medicine and publishing that treatise on pneumonic plague that we've been talking about that happened in nineteen, twenty six, and that treatise was the standard reference on pneumonic plague for the next. Next three decades. He also published ninety two papers over the course of his career thirty, one of them on the subject of plague, and he was involved in a series of other epidemics in China, including multiple other plague outbreaks, and to outbreaks of cholera. Woo was nominated for the Nobel Prize in medicine for work on pneumonic plague, and especially the discovery of the role played by the target in its transmission in nineteen thirty, five, this made. Made Him. The first Chinese person to be nominated for a Nobel prize in medicine over his career, he was also awarded honorary doctorates from picking, university Hong Kong University, and Tokyo University outside of his medical work.

He also donated six works of art to the Art Museum of the University of Malaysia. Thirty one. Japan invaded Manchuria, and Wu. And his family fled to Shanghai.

"Their respective rail lines, Russia and Japan each controlled cities towns that had large numbers of Russian and Japanese nationals, as well as people from other countries living there Russia in. Japan also had trading rights along their railway routes and then China also controlled a portion of the railroad as well, which was the imperial Chinese railway.

One of the primary industries in Manchuria in the early twentieth century was the for trade specifically, the target Marmot. Marmot can carry plague and Manchuria went through regular, almost seasonal outbreaks of plague that generally followed the hunting season, he's outbreaks were usually the bubonic form of the plague, which is characterized by fever weakness and painfully swollen lymph nodes which are called be bows, and these outbreaks tend to be localized, and they would last for a few months and Russian. Japanese and Chinese officials in Manchuria, all had their own procedures for dealing with them. So when trappers and for traders in men, Jolie started getting sick in mid October of nineteen, ten at first people didn't realize that that was actually something different. mannerly was right. Right on the border with Russia, it was one of the major centers in the for trade in Manchuria large numbers of seasonal hunters and trappers would come to the area and they would stay in these crowded, poorly ventilated, and in some of these were literally underground. So they were in these confined quarters with very bad ventilation. The mandate for Marmot for had also skyrocketed after the discovery that it could be died to look like sable, some hunters had resorted to digging sick animals out of their burrows to get their pelts although unlike with healthy marmots, sick animals were not generally also used as food. The first deaths were reported in major league in late October of Nineteen, hundred, ten with the first victims being Chinese for trappers, Russia and Japan both had medical facilities in their respective railroad towns in manually. Russia's medical centers were staffed with nine doctors more than seventy nurses in twenty-six assistance. As more cases came in, they diagnosed the disease as pneumonic plague caused by the same organism. Organism as bhubaneshwar plague, but characterized by shortness of breath, chest pain and coughing up blood followed quickly by death. If there was no treatment today plague is treatable with antibiotics which didn't exist yet in one, thousand, nine ten. So the fatality rate for pneumonic plague was close to one hundred percent authorities in manager. Lee. Informed international authorities in the towns, the railroad lines, what was happening? The. Japanese. Controlled cities in particular started taking a lot of steps to try to prevent the introduction of infection into those cities, including screening all incoming travellers and quarantining their Chinese population on mass. But it still was not immediately obvious. Just how serious this situation was since the clearest symptom of pneumonic plague was coughing up blood, and since death typically followed within forty eight hours of that symptom isolating people who were potentially exposed before they showed symptoms was really the only way to try to control the spread. Spread of the disease contact tracing was difficult since. So many of the victims were migrant for trappers and Labor's who didn't know anyone and couldn't provide details about who they had had contact with. So Russian authorities in Major League essentially treated the entire Chinese population. Especially, the poorest Chinese people as potentially infected. They detained Chinese people in groups of twenty five, and if nobody experienced any symptoms and five days at which point if they had been infected, it would be obvious than they were all free to go. But. If anybody in the group did experience symptoms that meant that anyone else who had been isolated with them was now potentially infected and they're five day wait started over. Soon though isolation facilities than manually were totally overwhelmed and authorities had start quarantining people an empty railcars. This mass isolation was obviously difficult. People didn't understand why they were being detained. So they would often break or try to evade quarantine and they tried to hide any symptoms of illness beyond the mass quarantine authorities were also taking steps that were not effective at containing the disease lake focusing on exterminating rats, which were not spreading the pneumonic form of the plague. If. This were a.

"Top story has week It's getting biblical. The plagues are coming upon us. It was Always inevitable guess that L. Biblical plays at proved so effective back in the day would would make a comeback and Well NATO As a as a fellow Jew obviously We know what how effective biblical plagues can be In terms of You know sort of political Progress You are a biblical plague correspondent. Just bring us up to date with the latest play that mean afflicting affecting America. That's right Andy. So the first thing. We should acknowledges that The last time I was on the Bugle was around the Jewish holiday of Passover which celebrates the story of the exodus which is wins the plagues. Calm and I. I wrote a bit a bit of business about some play jokes that Chris cut from the show and I wanna to take a moment to to acknowledge that the onward March of time has proven me right in Chris. Rock and as required us to bring back the plate jokes that got cut for time last time. So you know the these these in religion you have these stories that last last across thousands of years because of the enduring symbolism and metaphors And they and they continue to teach us and they reach across centuries to teach and inspire us for example these Blue Biblical plagues from the book of Exodus in which the Jewish people need to stay in the house to avoid a plague and those kind of metaphors are really powerful. Today in the book of play in the Book of Exodus there are ten play set by God to punish the Egyptians for enslaving the Jews. In this case we started at the angel of death which makes the other the previous nine plagues seem kind of not that bad. Like rivers of blood. Seems kind of okay. Frogs I take that cattle disease was one of the biblical plagues. We should all give up beef anyway. Because of climate change but so covert is the angel of death plague and then God in her inevitable inevitable wisdom said crap. I shot my wad number ten. I should have started out at a smaller plague and then worked my way up. You know what I mean like. I should have started out with the lesser plague. Like not being able to get the Song Bittersweet symphony out of your head and worked my way up gradually to the pandemic like live. You start out at ten. You have nowhere to go so God had to back it up a little bit and so here we are with murder. Hornets is the next biblical plague. That we're facing in. The United States is a species of Hornet that appeared in the Pacific northwest capable of killing a human murder. Hornets are originally come from Chinese sweatshops. Like the corona virus and mega hats and the murder. Hornets are are so named for their slaughter phase in which they find honeybees decapitate them and then feed the bodies to the. They're young and that's how you know that there are cruel and destructive species because of more humane murder. Hornet would eat the entire honeybee and not waste the head. Everyone knows that honeybee cheeks are a delicacy murder. Hornets have a distinctive. Look quite large about size of matchbox. They described as having large yellow orange heads. Prominent black is a black and yellow striped abdomen and their children are named Eric. Donald Junior Ivanka and baron but they only love Ivanka. Joke was beneath all of us so angel of death check murder Hornets check. What else you got Earth. Your big hailstone. There's hail now that's been spotted. That is six to nine inches across the biggest one scene of the Nilsson was in Argentina. But there's also graduate. Hailstones turned up in the DAKOTAS. They can shatter car window anything else. Gypsy moth infestations can which could destroy the entire food. Supply the gypsy. Moths is the more politically correct name of that type of moth that were previously called the Queer Kaik boss but it's been with the dame has been modernized to be more politically correct anyways. So now we're at four four of the ten plagues plagues detail moth moths. I'm crying uncle but I think trump should let the Israelites. Go like I get the message and in this version of the story. Trump is pharaoh Israelites. Or anyone who doesn't watch Fox News and go means not die. Well it's so exciting for for for Bible Bible Phantom Murder Hornets Let's say also known as the Asian giant Hornets And there is no evidence that they were created in a laboratory researching insight warfare by Chinese hand industry. Emperor Yuan D in The first century BC. We don't know that. No smoke without fire. Trump's advice If you've been stung by giant Hornet You could be able to cure yourself by swallowing an agricultural pesticides or hitting yourself hopefully with a badminton racket or other sorting device or leasing swarms of giant Hornets so more people get stung thus accelerating chase for Hornet Vaccine Barrett Burton. Have you have you ever come across a murder? Hornet in your in your travels. Yeah I call them police. Each we have different languages even though both speak English. I'm not sure how you refer to them. And I have come across this particular breed and I thought it was. It actually gave me sympathy briefly for like maybe immigrants are.

"In terms of the scientific literature around this, they said it came from a triple reassortment of bird swine and human flu viruses for the combined with Eurasian pig flu virus. That doesn't sound gross to you I don't know what it's. Maybe it's worth referring to what worked besides quarantining in those days going through all the periods of history of people who survived often with ones who just had stronger immune systems that goes without saying a lot of people who kept themselves cleaner did a little bit better than the ones who were filthy, and there's a wealth component to that as well, but people generally had no idea. Idea until very recently of what the origin of these diseases were, and they had all kinds of theories in fact during the bubonic plague, people thought that Jupiter and Saturn had lined up in the heavens, and there was some kind of what they call them. A conjunction of the planets at that stage, and they blame that for the outbreak of the bubonic plague, which is crazy, but When you don't have any onces you jump to the next best conclusion, young man, maybe at work is maybe was stronger than the disease. Yeah I think some good ideas of come out of these plagues well when Europe was so depopulated, did kind of put a stop to a lot of stupid walls, and the big policies were forced to rebuild at home, rather than seek adventure abroad and tried to conquer territories, which they could no longer for. FOR TO KEEP IT obviously depleted the Treasury's of countries that we're collecting tax and the labor force was severely curtailed for technology to the foreign. It's actually driven technology while you look at this one that we're dealing with the moment I mean the way we're doing. This episode of blind history is only because when a to be in contact your in Capetown. I'm doug normally. We would do an episode in studio together. That's not possible in technology. To do no chance. And you know the things in the end the once again. This is not my area of strength but the. Airplanes in the sky, just think. What a difference make from pollution levels in other spinoffs of this incredible to see. Ya I. Don't know that there's any one of these that has a happy ending. Except that now. Of course, we've developed some scientific methods to arrest the spread of these diseases and to kill the bacteria responsible, and if it's a virus to sometimes cut down the efficacy with vaccines, but obviously what Fleming did in discovering penicillin was tremendously instrumental in helping us fight, bacterial infections, and to pasteurize things, and to be able to to clear disease out of food, which was also a major source of disease for a lot of people up to then.

"According to the scapegoating theory members of a majority experiencing negative shocks settled on a specific target to blame for their problems and other potential mechanism determining the likelihood of persecution focuses on the extent of economic complimentarities so the ability to which they are economically intermingled between the majority and the minority. This thesis argues that patterns of economic complementarity substitute ability to determine the ability of two groups to coexist when the economic activities of the two groups complement. Each other shocks may lead the majority to protect the minority because of its economic value. So that's a bummer. That like what protected communities from. I mean there's two ways to view it either. The Solis is like oh no purely when people think that they have a financial benefits from not murdering each other. They don't murder each other. That's the bomber where it's like. Oh God our only solution is more capitalism. The other way to look at is just that like no when when two different groups when a minority group becomes intermingled with majority and they all become economically tied. They get to know each other. They shop at each other stores and they don't and they're like. Oh No I know these people. They're part of my community. I'm not gonNA murder them and I see that they have. There's we have value that we offer each other and at all it's not just like who the fuck are these people? Yes can you can interpret this in an optimistic view of human nature or a pessimistic view of human nature and it needs well into either. You know I wonder if it would be something like well. You know once. There's robots to do just going to be limited right. That's that's my solution that that motive seems a little bit of far for years now miles every time we've hung out. I've said if there weren't robots I'd be murdering you. I never really thought about why I was saying. But yeah super funny and then now that you said this I'm starting anyway. Yeah we we can explore that later So yeah it's cool stuff anyway. There's a lot of the black plague of armor and and we're going to move on from the black places And the question of whether or not genocide is inevitable or if it's only avoidable with economic complementarity whatever we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA move on from that complicated topic of discussions to talk about something fun. The Spanish flu epidemic of Nineteen Eighteen. Are you a big spam flu fan? Are you all man flu steroid? Yeah Yeah Oh my God Oh my God of foods commie dodgy blue about this whole thing. I love it so much If I'm you know no the only thing I know is that I think Babe Ruth got it twice. That sounds about that. Sounds like Babe Ruth and a lot of people would say you know Babe Ruth. It's Babe Ruth of Flus. I think more modern Lee people would say the Lebron James of Flus. But it's really this is like fucking Shit. I'm just saying if Lebron was a flu he would kill twenty five to fifty million human beings much like shit. I'm probably on Jason just as like a personal thing feel very proud of you for no bring him into the Yongqing. Well look. I just tried to make this defending audience Bron James. I mean he's an how far you've come. I mean Lakers. The Spanish flu carried out a series of dunks all around the world that field tens of millions of people. Just like the Lakers. Now this is. Have you heard much about like how the Spanish flu came about miles? I is in his uniform. Bec- label no well. It became one. Actually it's a tremendous irony okay. So the Spanish flu. We don't know where it came from. Some people say somewhere in Asia and people say somewhere in Eastern Europe. There's actually a really good chance it started in Kansas. And if like some people tracing it back think that it actually did it start in Kansas. Yeah if the Spanish flu originated from Kansas. Then it's probably the second deadliest thing to come out of that state right next to Kirstie Alley. Yeah I was just hockey Kirsty. Yeah what is two hundred twenty.

Imagine go into funeral after funeral after funeral and not knowing if you could hug any of your friends as you cry your heart out in case just by touching them you passed on this awful disease with no cure that seemed very magically targeting. You'll love these. Kids had already left their homes. Either for fear of their parents finding out they were gay or they'd been kicked out because their parents had found out they were gay and they come to the big cities to find a place where they could live and love openly and freely and without judgment they built mu quit families who could love and them and then they had to watch slowly and cruelty everyone they knew and loved died in front of them knowing that it would only be a matter of time before they were next so I was researching this. There were stories people in the late teens or twenties lying in hospital beds alone. There was no one left silica for more anyone who could was too afraid to so many stories of parents who finding out this on was dying from. Hiv would rather just ignore the whole thing. Pretend they don't have a son rather than face. The shame of the fact that their sons dying from this awful disease even after cremation. They wouldn't come and pick up his ashes because of the shame. The was one group of people though who can for those dying men when the strike doctors and nurses would badly even end to the woods or stick their heads around the dose of fear of catching something will because they brought it on themselves and they shouldn't live that kind of lifestyle if they don't want this kind of thing to happen and those people were gay women the lesbians they were there looking after the Menfolk as usual it would be easy and stupid to send to this whole thing around white cysts men but the truth is that people of Color and transgender communities were hit as hard if not worse than the White House and through all of this people of color and transgender people and White Sis gay men. We're all suffering and dying the ones holding the hands and and being shoulder to cry on generally helping. Everyone live and die with dignity with the women in the GP Tq community because as often we need reminding community isn't an should never be people who are just like me so all of us so by Nineteen eighty-three scientists had worked out that it was a virus so within two years of it becoming a thing. Scientists had worked out that it was a virus that spread through blood and sexual contact by nineteen eighty five two years after that there was a blood test to find it. So Y- progress is being made finding out you had at. This point wasn't particularly great because there was no kill or even any way of managing it all the positive test men was. You knew you had it under. It would pretty much definitely kill you. Slowly and painfully in a few years time love young men by the waiting there were quite a few who'd rather take their own lives so party themselves to death rather than wait for it to happen. Even though all this progress was being made the difference between scientific knowledge in general ignorance is a big one so despite it being common knowledge that it could only be passed on through sex and blood. There was still a huge amount of stigma to having HIV. This shame around it was big and heavy and that still around now to a degree which is crazy. You had friends dying of the disease. The best thing you could do was lie in one thousand nine hundred seven though is a guy who died of HIV. His best mate was ago. Who told everyone in your office that he died in a car crash because she didn't want to have to deal with all the judgement and stuff that come from being friends with someone with HIV and the Li- worked everyone was really sympathetic and caring and stuff until they found out that he'd actually died of HIV. Then when she came into work the next week they'd move to a desk to the other end of the office and people refused to talk to her or lend her stay pleasant things like that because they had kids and they had to think about them. Even story I found of a man who was having a heart attack stumbling into a fishing ship and asking to use their faxes before mobile. Phones goes up. So there's no other way he was. He was going to die of a heart attack if he didn't call someone. The fish and chip shop called the ambulance. He sat there and waited and money. I think he survived. Actually I can't remember but they found out at some point that he had HIV and then suddenly customers stopped going to this fish and chip shop. It almost had to close down because no one wanted to eat there anymore because they'd been a HIV positive in it and you might be sitting there thinking. Oh well how city people were back in the old days. We'd never do anything stupid like that nowadays. But all this corona virus knocking around you see people avoiding Asian people on the Tube. Us racist as just nasty. There's always the excuse. Ooh Well you never know or we count our fishing ships from there anymore about HIV guy was in there he was ill and you never know dear. Well we do know and you're an idiot. People are stupid and faithful easily manipulated. This has not changed throughout history. Speaking of the media had not just been homophobic had been downright cruel to Lgbtq people especially those HIV. In fact as far as they were concerned there was no different. If you were gay you either had it or you're going to a whole thing g. a wise Dunn's for got aids yet the Sun the Shitty little tabloid that it is not even absorbent enough to be totally wrong but there we go brown an article calling for the extermination of all gays to stop the spread of the disease. Not Finding a cure or looking after them or better sex education or anything like that. Just kill him all. Line them up and shoot him. It was proven that HIV couldn't be transmitted through touch or sneeze or sharing a toilet Saito. Whatever by about nineteen eighty-three but that didn't stop people being stupid enough right. It's twenty twenty and we still stupid people around actually in nineteen ninety-seven Princess Diana help to bit without blessed. Cotton socks well console. She was posture body. Silky want blessed Silky Stockins CEO this stigma and shunning anyone with HIV being terrified to touch them or take money from them if they were trying to buy something from you in the will before contact with credit cards Princess. Diana did a thing. She went on a tour of a new hospital and it had an AIDS wing and she shook hands with someone dying of AIDS. No clubs or anything like that in front of all the cameras in the world's media she treated him like a human being and that caused shockwaves. Full year four years since doctors. It said No. Don't where you can't catch it from touching someone and the simple act of shaking. His hand made the front page of pretty much every newspaper in the World Chino. What she was doing she might have been Rondi. Talk getting it from anyone will give it to you. Know nothing wrong with that Bozo. We've all been the viruses we can isolate. We can deal with and we have bud. The shame and the stigma and the judgment that hangs off. It has a little harder to shake Mohawk outcome. It really does not only did all these innocent young men land that they would likely to wither away and die and there was little or nothing that could be done but they had to do it in the face of shame and disgust from society. That either didn't know any better or didn't care you brought it on yourself is not something anyone in that situation needs to hit. And so the epidemic continued. It took until nineteen ninety-five four drugs to be developed. That could help. People manage the condition so they wouldn't actually kill them fifteen years from the first recorded outbreaks to a drug. That could manage the disease. Seems like a long time but I'm told by people who knows kind of thing that is remarkably quick anything like this especially considering how little we knew about viruses and things like that a good thing to know you know if you were diagnosed. It could be managed. You could live a normal life. You distil no cure even now but people with HIV on suffering anymore. You can live with it. You can manage it. You can thrive despite it in the past thirty seven years more than thirty two million people died from HIV and AIDS related illnesses. And that's just the ones we know about. So let's think of another way thirty two million people. That's every single person. Living in London New York San Francisco Berlin Paris Toronto Melbourne and Sydney. All of them together or another way. I just over half of the UK population all of it. It's like Thunnus Disney's magic snap and making half the UK die except it's not random and it wasn't quick pain this. He didn't dissolve into dust. It was slow in excruciating. You Watch your body shutdown from the inside. It was messy and absolutely heartbreaking and it would be everyone you know not just your boyfriend or your close friends or some gay people but everyone like the Barista smiles you the guy you see on your way to work most mornings the older guy from the office who always dresses nicely people on the street that you don't know but you'd see every day the bus driver the lawyer the chef and everyone that they ever loved or can about or just shacked because they will horny slowly rotting while they're still alive and you have to watch and there's nothing you can do if I were to sit here and read out the names of everyone who died all the ones we know anyway. Just one after the other without stopping. So I this Scott Flash Stephen Jones tits McGee Labor just going it would take me two and a half years no stopping no sleep. No Rest. No eating drinking anything like that. Just one name after the other like that. Tammy thirty months. They all had dreams and plans and whole lives ahead of them. They were kids. They were a lot younger than me. Most of them and they'd moved to the big cities to find more polite them to build their families and their social groups who would love them and support them in ways their own flesh and blood couldn't didn't want to some of them would have been great artists or writers or politicians inventors or anything like that and you know yeah some of them were complete. Dick heads because of course they were. It wasn't in the twenties. I don't WanNa Romanticize. Or generalize or anything because that's stupid. It's not that these kids were special different or somehow more than everyone else quite the opposite. Actually they were just like everyone else. They were everyone else. All of them had the potential to go on and do great things or to do nothing. Sit At home and rot their brains with Love Island. They never got.

"It was also cut into food supply. And if the diseases cross into humans could kill everyone. Cowpox or mad cow pox came from all of the purpose. Big bad diseases all cross to humans from livestock, which is our diseases killed people in the Americas. Isn't he Ed evolved to defend against that? They're yeah. Can we go warfare? We're so good at it. The Halen locus would destroy all the crops. Yeah. Hale is doing out of your carriage. Oh, yeah. Hail is still a huge concern. Around cutting time, prolonged darkness is also would be evidence of volcanic activity that could threaten crops if it's dark enough dark long enough. It will definitely affect the crops. Right. And I think venomous creatures in the dead babies is pretty obvious as though that's bad. But any of these plagues by themselves could cause the collapse of civilization. Oh, yeah. I mean by definition, that's what plagues are literally overkill it is overkill overkill. It's a plague is something bad that happens. It can destroy society. The biblical plagues is Egypt would not exist after going through that many plagues, I know you throughout the volcano. But that's a theory. That's out there, isn't that a lot of these are the Retailing's of volcanic activity in the area. And then it's just put it in a different order. Right. Well, like you've got the in the eighteen hundreds. There was the year without a summer. Which was one of the inspirations for creating the New York subway system when there was a blizzard on the fourth of July shut down the city allow people starved because it was snowing all summer long there weren't crops that year. Yeah. That was in the eighteen hundreds. You've got the the bubonic plague that wiped out a third of Europe's population the diseases brought to the new world killing ninety percent of the population of the indigenous peoples the potato famine most famous for Ireland, but it hit all of Europe where Ireland just had the most potato heavy diet. Yeah. And if you read any pioneer story, you're gonna get stories of locus blacking out the sky, stripping the fields bear, right? And the people having to move on or they'll die. That's also. Because that's part of the a locus a natural life cycle that just is like this catos, there's Mormon crickets crickets. Oh my gosh. Man. When those things come out in the summer, and you're you're driving down that like desert road mad. They starts discuss you slide. Yeah. Think they're ugly. So these plagues. You know, these are all of the scariest things that an ancient person would think about right. So perfect for storyteller right into this are the most worst terrible things. Yeah. Which will segue. Nicely into our first news story. The holiest site in Islam is being plagued by swarms of locus now currently yes, thirty thousand black grasshoppers to be precise. Wow. And I predict that Christians will call this God's judgement on Islam. Iran will call it. God's judgment on Saudi Arabia and Sunni Muslims. We'll call it insect migration. Yeah. It's insect migration. Right. Yeah..

"Plague and not do vanek plague so four pneumonic plague that's actually a fairly unusually low fatality rate which indicates potentially that there was a rapid response it could indicate that it could indicate that for some reason this was just like an unusually not variant strain but who has done an amazing job at responding to this outbreak so let's talk about what happens in the case of an outbreak lee as i think it's thrilling it's what i wanted to do for my job for a long time wanted wanted want to see these the just kidding we can propose are kinda in not kidding um but so what happens when you have a suspected outbreak is a whole mass of people from the who from the cdc from doctors without borders miss on some frontier right they're all sent to the place with the main goal of finding the index case the initial person or persons who could have sort of started this outbreak and in order to do that you have to do what we referred to before as boots on the ground epidemiology you have to go there and interview people who were either friends of the patient family of the patient healthcare workers every everyone who ever came into contact with that patient and then trace of their contacts back and back and back and additionally you have to do surveillance of all of those contacts to see who might develop symptoms in the future and so that means.

"The pneumonic plague there is a good thing about it surprisingly yes is that it is most infectious at the end stage of the disease okay and so if you're treating some one or carrying for someone who has demonic plague and they've just come down with symptoms you may still be okay yes as long as you just abandon them right before the day abandon them before they die just kid whereas oh that that's an alternative is an alternative abandon them or wear a mask but yeah you're most infectious during the last few hours especially of your disease however what's scary is that you also remain infectious after you die what so people who are preparing bodies for burial for example can become infected by close contact with the body because their body is still full of bacteria and that bacteria is still alive in all it takes is just a couple bacteria early who yeah so that's a little bit scary that's roughly from the other good news is that all of the plague is treatable with antibiotics as long as you catch it early enough caveat that's the big caveat and we'll talk a lot about that when we talk about what's going on a plate today yeah.

"Is very very limited you'd have to have a ton of contact with that boob o to really get infected that winick play exactly bonnet coca that is in contrast to pneumonic oh yeah which i know is your favorite well favorite favorite is a tricky words used too strong a word hey me it's the most terrifying to me it is the most virulent form of the disease pneumonic plague which means that it has infected your lungs is transmitted via respiratory droplets it is quite high so for bubonic plague the mortality rate is between thirty to sixty percent and 470 cmic untreated yes and for septicemic plague it's on the high end may be eighty or ninety percent but pneumonic plague if untreated is almost 100 percent fatal it's wily sad yeah so pneumonic plague again means that it was transmitted via respiratory droplets so boo bonnet plague if it spreads to your lungs can become pneumonic plague but with scary about pneumonic plague is that it can also be transmitted directly humantohuman via respiratory droplets oh yeah like the flu like the flu like smallpox like so many other diseases that we've seen so with pneumonic plague the incubation period here in some cases can be as short as twenty four hours and again the untreated fatality rate is almost 100 percent and remind our listeners incubation period is incubation period is the time from when you become infected to win you show symptoms okay and so with pneumonic plague it can be as little as 24 hours very soon very short and what's really sad is that you can also die within that amount of time so it takes over your body very rapidly it encompasses very severe respiratory symptoms including shortness of breath and coughing initially the cough will be dry but over time ohno it will become very productive is what we call it productive cough nia meaning your coughing up gunk from your lungs fulham phlegm but mostly blood and bacteria whoa so the one good thing about.

"Man i'm really excited to talk about played today because this is our first real zelenovic disease and vectorborne and our for sector born disease so that's really exciting for me and i am i would guess for you to since we're disease ecologists and so this type of diseases what's really exciting to us and we also both study vectorborne diseases exactly right if you are not aware as though not a disease is essentially a disease that generally circulates in animal populations and often spills over into human populations and a vectorborne disease is a disease such as for example malaria that is transmitted by an insect vector in the case of plague is transmitted by the humble flee i'm gonna say some things that actually might make you have some sympathy for the fleece no lie i didn't think it was possible but as i was reading i kind of felt bad for fleece somebody keep an open mind is an open mind and wait to be convinced so let's go through the life cycle of plague so play is caused by a bacterium called you're scindia pestis which likely evolved to be a bloodborne pathogen quite a long time ago and i'm assuming you'll talk a bit more about the evolutionary history of this disease yeah cool so we won't get into that now but what's really interesting is the life cycle of plague here's how it happens of fleet takes a blood meal from an infected what's call it a rat because those are really common death and the amount of bacteria that has in the rats blood directly correlates with the percentage of fleas that get infected not all fleas are going to get infected but usually at least around thirty percent of fleas that are feeding on a rat will get infected and if you think of a common rat it's got more than a few fleas on it right yeah lots and lots and lots of exactly so a good proportion of those fleas end up getting infected what happens is your scindia pestis travels to the fleas stomach where it starts multiplying and multiplying and malta.
