It's small business Saturday, and this is a way for consumers to make an impact in the community by supporting independently owned small businesses during the holiday season. The day was originally designed just so you know, to support local businesses, which will then create jobs boost the economy. Think I'd like neighborhoods around the country it was created initially could help independent businesses capture a larger piece of the critical holiday season. Consumer spending while also helping address the small business owners, most pressing need right, which is, of course, to get more customers through their doors. Tell us a little bit about what small businesses have been dealing with this year, the impact the pandemic has had on them. Absolutely well and we all know the pandemic. You know the global pandemic, and it has hit our small businesses pretty pretty hard we through the FDA and Treasury. We've been trying to support our small businesses that are paycheck protection program and economic country disaster loan programs to help keep them of a quote, But many small businesses have had to close others on the process of pivoting. Reinventing themselves that they can continue staying afloat during this pandemic and write it through until things get better and again. This is why small business Saturday which is November. 28 is so important for our small businesses because you know it. Ziff. We go to our small businesses are local businesses and we purchased from them. It's gonna help them keep their employees employed. It's gonna help create jobs and Senate and in essence. Help all of our economy, especially here in South Florida. I mean, I don't know if it's folks realize this. But in the state of Florida alone, 2.7 million businesses are small businesses that many 9.8% of all sort of businesses and these small businesses of they employ 3.5 million employees. Which is about 41% of the total employees and in Florida, So, as you know, small businesses really weak. They are the backbone of our community and our economy. And this is why from this insanity is so important. I'm joined by Victoria Guerrero, a district director at the small Business Administration. We're talking about small business Saturday. And for those who might not be familiar with this, how do you classify a small business? Well, actually, by FDA standards, that 99.8% of businesses in the nation are small businesses and the way that we classify there's a formula on our website. But in general is a business has less than 500 employees. They are considered small businesses. And, um, in as I mentioned, you know that the majority of our businesses and in the nation and again you know why it's so important to kind of go out and support them on November 28. But purchasing, you know, directly from them, But, yes, small businesses. You know, they've always been the economy. You know, they've always been the Internet drives our economy, so It's like a very important point to do this. I also just heard that you know, you know some business Saturday 2020 mast here.

But of course, now that the cut the pandemic has hit. Many of these small businesses are struggling, and this is why we encourage folks. So last year's not businesses, you know for your holiday season shopping spree and no purchase from them because they're not only gonna be helping the small business but the employees, their families and ultimately this city that you listen. Since this initiative launched small business Saturday. Obviously, the numbers last year were fantastic. Have you seen a steady increase in people participating in this initiative?

Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?
"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

Borders are coming down. Were they based on science or politics?
"It is thursday the twenty sixth of november. And we're approaching the festive december norman. Which at least for me in queensland means that board is reopening to almost the rest of australia entirely which is a first for months now which is really great especially families who wanna get together For christmas and new year but were the borders. What do we know about border closures. In terms of how useful they are in stopping the spread. Is it more about science or is it more about politics. It depends on the date. So if you look at the victorian second wave new south wales the clusters in new south. Wales did originate in victoria before they closed the victorian border the where some people who turned up in queensland who would be in victoria so borders do work when you've got a fair bit of virus circulating there but the question is once you get almost no virus circulating. Do the borders need to stay closed. And if you remember queen opened up for a short period before closing gone again before the second wave occurred westminster. There has never really opened up. Although it's it's saying it slightly less onerous now but it's really effectively closed the moment if a borders closed and it's really now from now on wwl i think really effect most other places are open. South australia will eventually have access to states. Once they get over this pick up with the current outbreak. I think from now on is just politics because the risk is so low question is. Are we going to slap a border on again. If there's a cluster outbreak in new south wales or accuster outbreak in victoria me. The probably will be customer outbreaks because we're bringing people from overseas. The provia customer outbreak can in queensland because bringing people from overseas. I we're going to keep going backwards and forwards well propeller. She says no. She's not going to do that well. She's not gonna do that then. Why would she do it. Not in other words. She could do it in the future. Why has she done it in the past. I think that's no that the queensland election is passed then poltics becomes less of an issue. The west australian election is still to come. And i think quite honestly even though the risk is incredibly low if not nonexistent w borders will probably remain closed. Because there's an election coming you can see why states want to protect the resources of the health department's and protect the people that leaving there but it does seem like quite a blunt instrument to control spread. When you think about the size of the states that we have in australia blunt. It may be but it's probably been fairly effective when you had a lot of virus circulating but now is almost non and we're pretty much well in control. The problem you've gotten w for example is people have gone back to virtually back to normal and the virus comes in then you got a problem because it could spread but their risk is much more and the primary mcgowan has said. This martin mcgowan said this much more from hotel. Quarantine then is from new south wales victoria and they would have to do what south australia's done. Which is reboot contact tracing when the get outbreaks. So they're not ready for it and that's part of the problem as well so like you say we're coming into the end of the year with almost completely open borders across australia. What do you say the first half or the. Let's let's start with the first half of twenty twenty one looking like well. We're still waiting for vaccine rollout. Well i think that what will happen is that will continue to bring back people from overseas. Australians from overseas. I suspect we'll see a bubble open up with new zealand. Maybe the pacific islands as well. So there's no quarantine between us because we've got almost no cases so the new zealand to keep on quarantining us going there. We would almost cases. I suspect they will relax and open it up to us. The need us is poorly more than we need them. But that would be nice. Pacific islands pretty low low risk then got singapore which is a bit more awkward because the it being a transportation hob so i think you start to see. Some international bubbles opening up and. I think that you're going to see the odd outbreak here or there in australia but kept under control and we'll get back to some kind of normal life throughout australia and circulating normally no then the question will be at. What point. would you open up our borders to international travel and that will depend. I suspect on digital vaccine passports in other words except you people from overseas if they'd been immunized and of course that will depend on whether the vaccines prevent infection or just covid nineteen disease because if they don't prevent infection then you could be bringing people in from overseas who are carrying covid nineteen and could spread it here but if they prevent in which is going to take a little wild into the twenty twenty one to discover. You may not see vaccine passports being used in australia until we're sure how effective the vaccines are preventing transmission. But i think that you could see international flights starting sooner than many expected. Well

Is COVID-19 seasonal after all?
"Hello this is corona cost a daily podcast all about the corona virus. I'm health reported teigen tyler. I'm physician and journalist alter norman swan. It's tuesday the twenty four. Th of november cinnamon one of the questions that we've gotten a lot from people about over the course of this pandemic so far is whether it's seasonal and on one hand yes. The melbourne second wave happened in winter. But it's hard to really taes out. What's the difference between seasonality and a new virus in globe of susceptible people but in the states which is going into its wind up and also in in other parts of the northern hemisphere was seeing a really straight upwards curve a really scary looking curve. so what do we know about the season -ality or otherwise of coronavirus were joining the first wave. It was said that there was so much corona virus around swamped the effects of seasonality. Although most people expected this to be a winter virus a seasonal virus but they couldn't guarantee it and you just weren't necessarily seeing the effects of it on this week's health report podcast. I've been talking to chris maureen maher. Who's these of health metrics and evaluation in seattle and they've been doing global modeling now on the covid nineteen pandemic which has turned out to be pretty accurate so for the world for different countries and for the united states and they say that when they look at the big data they do find a seasonal effect and they. It's actually quite strong and the fascinating thing is that they predict that the virus in the united states will start to peak deaths from the coronavirus will peak roundabout inauguration day and tail off towards the end of january into february without any vaccine. You'll see a natural peaking and tailing off. We won't go down to zero but it will start to ebb away so in the joe biden was like trump. he would take four credits on day. Two of his presidency for turning around the pandemic. but it'll be natural. What's the driver for it to pay them. Is it that people interacting with a set number of people and you just kind of run out of context. How does how does that pay. Start to come down again. No it's obviously a little bit of an effect of natural museum that but even by january you still not going to see the majority of americans infected with the covid nineteen virus so a little bit of an effect because what they say. Is that even twenty percent coverage of immunity associated with some social distancing cooed tailing off. Now i think they it's simply how their virus response to temperature and although it's still in the middle of winter and pretty cold there are plenty of viruses that have most of their fates in autumn early winter and seem to die way in midwinter and influences a bit like that where influenza unistrokes tends to hit more in autumn than winter depths of winter. Not that we have much of winter. So yep they think it's seasonal tending often and if you are lucky with the vaccine the vaccine does prevent transmission then have an even more dramatic faked as the year goes through. Yeah i suppose they were some early nickname mention. It starts came out earlier in the saying that the virus survived longer at lower temperatures and in low humidity are. Maybe that's the season thing. But what does it mean for us australia. Coming into next year's winter if a vaccine isn't widely available by that time well if we've kept our international borders secure and we haven't had too many outbreaks and we're still social distancing to some extent when we need to enroll able to control then maybe not very much because the won't very much virus around but if there is a significant say outbreak from hotel quarantine for still doing it at that point. Then you could see a major takeoff and victoria. Tasmania parts of south. Australia would be vulnerable to that. So i'm trying to cross my mind that because we have talked about season on corona's before and i feel like we said that it wasn't safe no so will be wrong or is this just more information. I think you feel the wrong thing. T very different. I remember that people saying that probably was a season paper. You couldn't see it. In all the noise of an strength of the pandemic the pandemic was so strong it was masking a seasonal fake underneath the name what they thought was as the pandemic turned into an epidemic and the virus became endemic in other words. Steady in the community and keeping on recurring. Then you would see the effect of seasonality which might mean then you'd see a surge as the goats colder. I like that vision of memory. Yes yeah but no doubts kirk listeners. Who got a much better than either you. Army will fix us up. That's the lately and speaking of other research related things that we've talked about before and we now have more information about Antibodies on the only thing in our immune system and this nearly such out of monash university that shows that perhaps immunity to the coronavirus is long lasting than we feed. Yes so little bit of physiology. Here there are two elements to attack or threaten sweep elements to attacking a virus delicious. Talk of two of them for the moment. The first wave is really the antibody those chemicals in the bloodstream that attach to the spikes of the corona virus and stop it docking with tissues in our body and hopefully kill the virus as well and they're called neutralizing antibodies. now they'll come out of nowhere. They're produced by white blood cells white blood cells that produce antibodies b cells and some b cells have memory for the antibodies. They need to produce. It was a waste of energy then producing antibodies. All the time to a virus that they're not seeing but if avars enters the body they wake up and they say oh hello. I've seen this one before and they start manufacturing. Antibodies and this study identify found a way through using monoclonal. Antibodies to actually attach themselves to these b cells. Identify them they to twenty five people in march who had corona virus and follow them through to september looking at these b. memory cells and what they showed was that they maintain themselves in other words. You can still find b. Memory cells at the end of eight months so that suggests that the body retain the memory and the ability to produce antibodies to the coronavirus sars cov e to. This is not a peer reviewed study hasn't been published in a major journal yet but it is an interesting finding very sophisticated study and great needs to people who've had coronavirus but also for the quest for vaccine. That's absolutely right

A doctor of slash Saturday is where you can find out more information. Have you seen a certain sector of small businesses that has been impacted disproportionately hard due to the panda? I'm like, Well, the restaurant section has had been hit very hard because of the pandemic, and some restaurant owners have been able to pivot and start doing take out or create. You know some creative ways of continuing to operate but many. Unfortunately we're unable to do that. So many have had to close or or thinking about closing, But our restaurant sectors of one that I believe personally has been the harder And it seems like an obvious way to help out some of those types of businesses for a small business Saturday or just in general, this holiday season gift cards. Thies businesses are making them available and it's just it's one of the most perfect ways to help them out and give a great gift. Absolutely. And you know what other things that those can do is they don't want to drive to their local restaurant to purchase a small, you know that gift card that can contact the quarter what local restaurant or go to their website. Like I said, many many restaurants have been able to pivot and they've been able to put a lot of their menus online as well as the ability to purchase these gift cards online. So you may be able to actually support your local restaurant. Daddy, you're home with the college. Even so, That's always something that really think about and again that they're the ones have been hit the hardest, So I'm sure it would be very appreciative and who doesn't want to get close from the restaurant. That's something you're always going to use. Right? Everybody's got to eat at some point. Exactly. It's not like that. That sweater that you get that you look at me. You say really. This is what they thought I'd like. I mean, restaurant can't go wrong there and final question for you. This holiday season. Just like every holiday season could be so important for somebody different businesses. How much too small businesses rely on an increase in sales this time of year to really help put them over the top for the entire year. Well, I would say that you know if it's a business is cratering on being in the red or being in the black small business. Saturday's really, um we The main component that can help them go into the black and be profitable this year. So I would say, you know, our small businesses really do the trend on Saunders from Saturday to help them No. Finished the year on a positive note again.

Rudy Giuliani and President Trump's legal team continue to undermine the election
"Yesterday there was a presser with Trump's legal team talking about where they are in questioning election results in in several states. And you know them all very well. Here's Rudy Giuliani and what he had to say. This really stood out yesterday. We can not allow these crooks because that's what they are to steal an election from the American people they elected Donald Trump. They didn't elect Joe Biden. Joe Degenova legal analyst, former U. S attorney to the District of Columbia, a member of the Trump campaign legal team. His wife, Victoria, Tensing, also a member of that team, and you saw them yesterday there with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellison. Some others, Joe, Thank you for joining us this morning. Good. Great to be here. So, Joe, obviously a lot of questions from yesterday, But I think the question that I walked away from this with as I thought. There were a lot of very compelling arguments that were made. But yet I heard from the left that that that presser did not answer their questions and left a lot of people walking away saying, Okay. What Now? What? What did you What was the point of it? What did you want to prove in? Do you think you proved that? Well, First of all, I don't care what the left says about yesterday. That's number one. If we were to listen to them, we'd never get anything done number one. Let's let's just get a little perspective here before everybody loses their brain power in 2020. We had one state in Bush v. Gore. 2020. We have 6 to 8 states that we have to deal with. I took daunting task, but it is doable. Now, let's just step back for a second. And look what happened on election night. Election night. Donald Trump has a massive lead. He's on his way. And then all of a sudden everything stops around midnight, and in the key battleground states, the counting stops it stops. And at that point, we asked. Well, what happened? Why is that happening? And the answer is that point Something was afoot. As Sherlock Holmes used to say the game is afoot. Now, why did it stop? It stopped because it had to, because once they saw how much Mr Biden needed to win, they needed to get to put in place a plan which had existed to allow him to win. Now I want a completely associate myself. With everything that Rudy Giuliani said yesterday This election was stolen from the president of the United States, and that's the job that he has assigned Those of us who were on the legal team to fix and that is exactly what we're about to do. Just we are supposed to believe that in these six states Everything happened at the same time by accident that this is just an act of God. It is fate that it is a coincidence. Well, in my opinion, it is a coincidence with a purpose on the purpose was to stop. To figure out from the computers what you needed to win and then to get those numbers and that's exactly what was done. Now we have affidavits, hundreds and hundreds of affidavits. That's what Victoria and I Have been doing over the last two weeks now, and that is finding witnesses talking to them, interviewing them and getting them to give sworn underscore. Warn affidavits or declarations to be used in courts of law. Now, the reaction yesterday at the news conference was really fascinating. When you stand up there, and you look out at this sea of reporters, mostly unfriendly, with a few exceptions. The nature of the questions is so stupid and uninformed and offensive. It's just remarkable for anybody to suggest the journalism lives. Now they have to be in some sort of cave. But you know what? It makes the fight even better to do. Because it's one thing to have to fight the other side. But it's another thing to have to fight almost the entire mainstream media and so that's what we're doing. We have great confidence in our legal team. And we've given these to the statistical analyses that are being done in the expert witnesses who are executing affidavits about the incredible anomalies. In the numbers that they are statistically impossible to be what are being represented to the public. I have no doubt that we will get a fair chance in federal courts and maybe in some state courts to prove our case, but we have time. And but again, this is in 2000 with one state. This is 2020 was 68 states. It's not easy, but it's being done and I want to congratulate everybody on the legal team. These people are working 24 hours a day with little sleep, no pay and are doing a marvelous job.
A donut day before the storm? Is six days going to be enough?
"I'm health reported. Teigen tyler an assistant journalist author norman swan. It's friday the twentieth of november water week. What a week in date especially for people in south australia. And if you listening with thinking of you in lockdown at the moment but norman as well. Yesterday there were no new cases in south australia there in super hard lockdown if that finding more cases over the next couple of days can i just go straight back to normal as soon as lockdowns iva well. That's possible i suspect that what The authorities will do is give themselves another four or five day window just to make sure there aren't any because the six days is predicated. They think this is a short incubation period. Virus and we talked about that in yesterday's krona cast. It's unlikely that's true. It's probably just virus coronavirus like any other and it's going to be five days and therefore might wanna wait another few days just to check it out. They'll probably release people and a bit more and allow people to go out for more exercise and so on so it's going to be much more like a stage. Three i would imagine would be fairly safe to do. Going back to zero is probably politically a bit. Risky. because you don't want to reimpose it if if more cases reappear but you might relax and let people to go out so i suspect you might be on a ten day cycle in south australia. But what do i know. It's fantastic news. There are zero cases with a lot of testing being done and is a lot of testing. It's in in proportion. It's about the same. As victoria was at the peak of their pandemic. And we've been in touch with south australian health trying to see if we can get some more information about this strain that they were talking about that that the public health officer was saying how short incubation period and was mild. But they haven't been able to release that genomic info yet so we actually nar if it's materially different to the other corona virus strains that secular around the world. It's not. You can't really be unless some mutations. has occurred this is virus. That's come in from with somebody from brisbane. It's going to be one of the circulating viruses and britain. I'm not aware that the british are saying that they've got anything peculiar but their viruses are behaving. This was said at the beginning of the new south wales when they got somebody coming in from victorian you got the crossroads motel say that they were noticing very short incubation times. It was a different kind of fires. You didn't hear much more beyond that. Because i think it was just an artifact of the cluster where you just got intense spread during the cluster. Which makes you think that. It's a different virus. But in fact a different style of virus but in fact it's not
So what's the deal with this new coronavirus strain in Adelaide?
"I'm health reported taken tyler. Opposition and journalist author norman swan. It's thursday the nineteenth of november. Big day yes. Big day especially for people in south australia where yesterday we were hearing that. Not only have a south. Australians going into an incredibly tough lockdown but a short one. we're also hearing the chief public health officer nicholas spirited talking about how this strain that circulating at adelaide ease different. It's shorter incubation period. People with it don't seem to have as many symptoms. What do we know about this strain in adelaide and it truly is different or if it's just looking like it's acting differently. This was said during the crossroads motel outbreak. In new south wales when the virus spread from victoria it was said there was a shorter incubation period. More likely to spread E- symptomatically and explaining why there was a really significant superspreader event in that hotel in new south wales. Now we've not heard very much about that since that was certainly at the beginning. Now the saying the same thing here. Now i've i've spoken to a couple of people who kind of know how this virus behaves and they wonder whether or not in fact what's going on is that you've actually got super sporting events and they're so significant the super spreader events. You start to wonder whether or not the incubation short and could be true. It's still not clear what the virus is. What the subset of the covid nineteen viruses. The has been a stream code in for three nine k which has been picked up in south australia. It's not entirely clear whether that's the form that circulating not that's one that's growing uk europe and really quite common there. It's on the spike. It's where it looks the so-called h two receptor which is how you get the lock and key mechanism going into the The cell and people have looked at various strains and wondered whether or not there are significant characteristic. So what what are they talking about here is to use technical terms a short replication cycle. In other words it replicates very quickly but it infects people and the more like. It's more likely to cause a symptomatic disease upfront. That's the kind of picture that i suspect. The chief health officer in south australia was Was communicating whether that's going to bear out when you look at this and when you compare the data from europe i mean clearly it's coming from the uk. Certainly this in forty nine k. is coming from the. uk. The have been suggestions in the uk that they're getting some short incubation periods viruses with a symptomatic spreads. Certainly you've got a lower mortality rate but hospitals are filling up. So i think this is a story that had to pan out but it's clearly spooked the authorities now. The you cannot separate the lockdown from the belief that this is a short replication cycle more infectious virus could spread he symptomatically. That's what they believe. You got to try and extinguish this virus. You've gotta get outside australia and the only way to get this virus outer and extinguish it. 'cause you don't have any anti viral treatments is by lockdown and stopping people from mixing and stop them sharpened quickly and stop the virus spreading. That's the way to extinguish the virus. I'm reminded you had james hatfield back in march if you can remember back. That far on the health report norman. And he made the point that the golden rule of networks basically the family trays viruses. is that if it looks like the virus is behaving differently. Ninety nine percent of the time it's actually because of the epidemiology or the way that the humans the house of the virus are interacting with each other so could not be possible that it's just the way were behaving rather than the virus itself. Yes exactly that's the point. I was making a few minutes ago. Which was that could be. Just had some really quite dramatic super spreading events that were worried about. Its pizza parlor. Four thousand people for goodness sake are in isolation although now it's the whole population that's an isolation you also could. Well be the the behavior. Rather suddenly an appearance of a new strain that scott these characteristics particularly when the strain that hit from victoria into new south wales there were saying the same thing and they went quiet on that because in the end i don't i'm not so sure that the virus that they got into new south wales was so terribly different from the one in victoria and i don't think people were arguing victoria that it had particularly unusual characteristics.
Trouble brewing for tennis in Australia
"We've had some news tonight from australia. That a lot of the plans that they'd had in place that we understood them to be from the interviews that criteria the tournament director done. All the idea. Was that players would come in. Mid-december do that. Two weeks of quarantine play all of the pre australian open tournaments in melbourne To reduce travel and potential spreading of the virus. And that has. We've been told tonight in reporting by tennis channel. Initially that is not going to be viable. That players are not going to be allowed to come into the country as things stand in december at all and the first day that they will be allowed to set foot in the country as the first of january. Which if they are required to do two weeks quarantine at that point would take them up to about three or four days before the australian open is due to begin which is hardly ideal at the very least and potentially threatens the entire australian tennis summa Certainly those preview those run-up tournaments that That they would hope to run whether the couple for some of the other events that they might bring over from brisbane and adelaide and sydney. We don't know officially wear tennis australia. Stand on this at the moment. We we've only heard this news in the last few hours and it does follow comments from the premier of victoria. Saying that it's absolutely not a done deal. Plays can come in in december you know because of the logistical issues of bringing all these people in and they've spent such a long time in lockdown getting rid of the virus dampening down to the fact that they've had apparently zero cases over the last couple of weeks new cases So we don't really know where we stunned. I think the what kind of expect they may end up doing if this continues in plaza not allowed to come until the end of december. The the first week in january is to try to coincide the two weeks of quarantine with those tournaments and be able to get permission for players to practice and play competitively. I would imagine in some sort of bubble whilst effectively quarantining and therefore that would make it doable for them. Not only to run additional tournaments but also to play the strain open. But catherine this is Just generally this is a pretty alarming state of affairs. isn't it given. it's not that far away now. Now we're talking about plays plays would have been booked in planning to travel in less than a month's time to australia significantly less than a month's time in in some someplace cases and particularly exum i think because because the tennis will the i thought okay. I mean the the barriers to entry to australian and the price of entry is incredibly high but once their once the tennis world is there and and post three days barriers. It's a it's a kind of safe haven for tennis to exist for while and and flourish for oil for that to be thrown into some uncertainty Is is quite discombobulating. Ready an i. I can only imagine how the players in the tools feel about it. I i completely respect the position of If the australian government absolutely i mean we are in a glass house in terms of criticizing the likes of australia's Approach to risk averse approach to To covid nineteen absolutely But yet the timing of it is is very disconcerting. Absolutely me i'd say something. I keeps coming back to me when we have in the events after the us. Open rome and run gar austin a couple of times match just mentioned. I'm watching this. And i'm still wondering whether it really is right. You know to see all this international travel when this is going on it. Just it's hard to put the two together as much as we love the sport and wanted to be out to be viable at the moment.
Lockdown early or wait and see? The big questions facing Adelaide
"And norman. We're watching this outbreak in australia. With real cane interest it feels like it's blossoming into quite large numbers before is When we're recording these swi- talking about at least seventeen people. The numbers might have increased by the time people listening to corona cost. What sort of action to south australia needs to be taking now. And what have they announced intensive action sipho range of interventions limiting to some extent pubs closing down gyms and other recreational facilities and sports training outdoor activities can continue fifty people that have funeral. Pops have one hundred but one person per four square meters so they've kind of done a bit of a control here but no pubs are high risk areas as our gyms. They haven't restricted weightings beyond what was allowed beforehand. So it's it's kind of a bit of this and a bit of that over. We have gone in harder than victoria did. At the same stage people are saying. Is this the second wave in south australia. I don't think that you can say that yet. It's a cluster outbreak. If they lose control of it and you get exponential increase than you would say that. It's the second wave but at the moment it's a cluster outbreak as we speak the numbers had an increased during monday. The interesting thing is that it looks as though it's been going for a week and therefore you've got this virus that's been brewing and what you're seeing now is probably an incubation period away from the first infection so you're starting to see new infections emerge where people have become infected so the so the question then is have they tracked down every contact here and really getting it down to wear people might call from are still people incubating over the last week or so because sometimes it can take eight to ten days for it to come out and then they've passed it on to somebody else and that could take another eight to ten days. It does take a couple of weeks to really understand what's going on. That's right evicted. Some of the health advice to the night of november. The states with people who've been in south australia are asking people if they were there from that date onwards to to oscillate and so forth. So when did this start then. If if the night of november is the date that the health authorities are talking about where one assumes remembers when it got out but they've not been clear about so where to from he is. Is it just. Should they go into a full lockdown like melvin deed or other measures they're taking now sufficient given the the still relatively low numbers. They sort of feel like they've growing quickly. But is it overkill to to lock down an entire state. I've a also cases. So there are two or three variables. Here one is how fast the numbers growing of in growing faster than contact tracing can cope with them and are any cases turning out where you don't know where they came from so those are kind of the variables that you're playing with here and if they're growing pretty fast and contact tracing starting to get stressed. Then you really do want to lock down to stop people moving around so that you can get this under control and for every day that you wait to do that when it's really starting to increase. It's a week of the other end so short. Sharp total lockdown can really get this under control and other the contact tracers to find out where everything is coming from but if they're finding day by day you're only getting one or two extra cases where they're coming from contact tracing is okay there in terms of knowing where things are then. You probably don't need to change things too much. But if there's any indication this is slipping out of control out of control of the testing and the contact tracers. You've just got to go to law down. Even if they are aren't very many mystery cases or any at all.
Australia has a coronavirus outbreak. What happens now?
"Norman as we've been celebrating darnall days left right and center in ustralia over the past week or so. We've now heard that. Three people have tested positive for coronavirus in south australia. Outside of hotel. Quarantine an eighty year old woman. Some of her close contacts. And then there's other people in her circle that have symptoms and they're expecting more cases to come forward. I mean are we ever gonna know this thing. Well the answer is maybe not going to be with us forever. It just depends on how we control it. So i mean just you know. It's not good for south australia. This happened But we have said on. Chronic has many times now. It's not a question of pride that we've said it but everybody knows it that we're importing people who deserve to come back to australia. Australians living overseas who want to come home and the coming home from high prevalence area so the coming home with the covid nineteen virus and sometimes covid nineteen itself and quota quarantine has got to remain secure for the virus not to escape and we'll only find out as time goes on maybe later on today. What exactly happened inside the stereo and confirming the disney escape from hotel quarantine. The testing people emergency department and elsewhere. So they've just straight go to really move and they are really moving into major containment excise as the queensland for example when cases came across the border and as the due south wales when there was a major coster victoria through the motel and southwest sydney so south australia's chief public health officer nicklaus spirit has called it. A up. call is asking people in south australia to get tested if they've got symptoms but it's not really just a wake up call for south australia. Is it everywhere. I mean people coming into every state. I'm not sure that they started yet. In pretoria think we have but for every state. It's a wake up call and hotel. Quarantine is only as good as the security around. It must be quite easy for the virus to escape if people's vigilance relaxes so it's you. It's a system problem. It's probably not a bad egg or anything like that. It's just hard to maintain day in day out. We can we out and this will probably happen more often and the west australian premier mcgowan. Yesterday's press conference was saying the biggest threat to western. Australia was indeed hotel quarantine and here. It is in south australia.
Australia's National Cabinet pledges for all domestic borders except WA to reopen by Christmas
"Except for western australia. Committed in principle to reopening allstate borders by christmas. This would theoretically main that we could expect queensland say to make up to people from sydney or from victoria by then no data being announced yet by queensland but my money would be probably on the first week of december most australian states also committed to implementing health measures that would enable internal borders to remain open next year. And after the from hell. I have to say that it's so nice to be able to talk about some good news for change. Unfortunately the outlook still isn't that great though
Australia records zero Covid-19 cases for first time in five months
"So for those of you in the know double doughnuts that we've had no new cases zero cases of coronavirus here in victoria and zero debts. Oxides fantastic so we look forward to potentially relaxing a little bit with some of the lockdown conditions. And i think the one that will be looking forward to his if they'll let us not make it compulsory to have the masks on in the panama because coming into osama and that's been a pretty warmed i hate to i. It will be a little bit. Tricky and houghton plus street underneath those mosques smart. So i'm hoping that the change in waco week to suggestion that perhaps we may have to wear masks when my side buildings and shopping centers et cetera.
Ashleigh Rae on Your Voice and Accountability in Recovering from Sexual Violence
"Welcome Melissa. Thank you so much for having me Teri. It's amazing. I want to start with the fact that you're you're conducting this interview under a stooge him because currently in Australia where you're based. There is a court situation where survivors of sexual violence are under a gag order essentially from speaking out publicly about their experience. So let's start there with this the law or the policy actually say, yeah. It's a birth of a situation for survivors. So basically what happened is our state government in Victoria was tinkering with one bit of our legislation around suppression orders and they cross you've got tunnel vision and didn't do their do diligence in terms of consultation and looking at who would actually be affected and what the outcomes of this would be and in trying to correct one bit of leads. Relation, that would make things a bit easier in one respect. They've ended up with this for lack of a better word. I'm this clusterfuck of a situation. Sorry for the swearing and it's now judicial proceedings Reporting Act which basically means that for a survivor of sexual violence to publicly speak out. They can't use their own name and you actually face up to 84 months in prison or jail and a fine or a combination of the two and if a media Outlet say like any of our television broadcasting Network's radio, what have you even if it's a podcast if they violate that and they publish a real name without a court order they're liable for a fairly Hefty fine as well. So that essentially means you don't have the right to your voice in Victoria in my state. You have to apply to the court for the right to tell your story if when and how you choose so we're currently going through that. Okay, so let me get off. Straight if you were to move to another province in Australia, would you have the right if you're outside of Victoria know so it applies to cases where there's a conviction secured in the same Victoria. So without going into too much more detail there that means I'm gagged from speaking because I have convictions within Victoria. And you said the intention was not to gag survivors of sexual violence, but now that this impact has happened. What are the people who propose this policy? What are they doing to rectify it? If anything that's a really good question. I wish I had a really good answer for you. It's been it's been a Survivor LED movement to hack the government to account here, which is been initiated by a journalist in Melbourne. Nina Finnell with the letters speak campaign, and it's been incredible. So we are really going hard at home. The government and saying you need to be more transparent and accountable personally. I've had several interactions with a Department of Justice. I met with them last week and we had a very long conversation about all of the areas not just in the law itself, but also in how they handled the public relations aspect of when it did come in out into the media and how awful that had Bane and letting them know that essentially the government had gas-lit survivors and knowing that young girls and boys and yet people were going to be watching this and feeling life. They couldn't come forward and Report because they were going to be gagged. What was the point really undermining all of the work that so many survivors and now police have done in encouraging people to actually come forward port. So what is the impact of this new legislation on the convicted perpetrators are they allowed to speak? Oh, it's a field die for them wage and part of the reason for that is because in the process of obtaining a court order somehow and we don't actually have transparent reasoning why this is something that we've demanded to know from our judges wage is that perpetrators have been notified and even asked for their views on this so it's it's fantastic for them. It really gives power back to them and takes away from the Survivor, which is really not. Okay. So as far as I'm aware perpetrators are free to speak to the media. There's very little holding them back except that Australia has really strong defamation laws, and that would be the only concern I'm aware of that they'd have so from an outsider's perspective the seems like blatant sex discrimination, especially if most wage Survivors of sexual assault are women and if those women aren't allowed to speak and the men who are convicted of these crimes are it seems like it's an issue that should be of national importance to fix. What is the, you know highest level of government doing about it if anything. That's such a good question. It's in in the context of Australia as a whole we've had amazing progress in terms of I'm gagging survivors. So it took several of our state's we actually had long-standing entrenched laws that prevented survivors from publicly speaking out and interpersonal actually run some really successful campaigns in the Northern Territory and also in Tasmania always in the last 18 months and she got those laws revoked amended. So that survivors could actually speak out. So they've had the right to speak before which
Your Voice and Accountability in Recovering from Sexual Violence
"Welcome Melissa. Thank you so much for having me Teri. It's amazing. I want to start with the fact that you're you're conducting this interview under a stooge him because currently in Australia where you're based. There is a court situation where survivors of sexual violence are under a gag order essentially from speaking out publicly about their experience. So let's start there with this the law or the policy actually say, yeah. It's a birth of a situation for survivors. So basically what happened is our state government in Victoria was tinkering with one bit of our legislation around suppression orders and they cross you've got tunnel vision and didn't do their do diligence in terms of consultation and looking at who would actually be affected and what the outcomes of this would be and in trying to correct one bit of leads. Relation, that would make things a bit easier in one respect. They've ended up with this for lack of a better word. I'm this clusterfuck of a situation. Sorry for the swearing and it's now judicial proceedings Reporting Act which basically means that for a survivor of sexual violence to publicly speak out. They can't use their own name and you actually face up to 84 months in prison or jail and a fine or a combination of the two and if a media Outlet say like any of our television broadcasting Network's radio, what have you even if it's a podcast if they violate that and they publish a real name without a court order they're liable for a fairly Hefty fine as well. So that essentially means you don't have the right to your voice in Victoria in my state. You have to apply to the court for the right to tell your story if when and how you choose so we're currently going through that. Okay, so let me get off. Straight if you were to move to another province in Australia, would you have the right if you're outside of Victoria know so it applies to cases where there's a conviction secured in the same Victoria. So without going into too much more detail there that means I'm gagged from speaking because I have convictions within Victoria. And you said the intention was not to gag survivors of sexual violence, but now that this impact has happened. What are the people who propose this policy? What are they doing to rectify it? If anything that's a really good question. I wish I had a really good answer for you. It's been it's been a Survivor LED movement to hack the government to account here, which is been initiated by a journalist in Melbourne. Nina Finnell with the letters speak campaign, and it's been incredible. So we are really going hard at home. The government and saying you need to be more transparent and accountable personally. I've had several interactions with a Department of Justice. I met with them last week and we had a very long conversation about all of the areas not just in the law itself, but also in how they handled the public relations aspect of when it did come in out into the media and how awful that had Bane and letting them know that essentially the government had gas-lit survivors and knowing that young girls and boys and yet people were going to be watching this and feeling life. They couldn't come forward and Report because they were going to be gagged. What was the point really undermining all of the work that so many survivors and now police have done in encouraging people to actually come forward port. So what is the impact of this new legislation on the convicted perpetrators are they allowed to speak? Oh, it's a field die for them wage and part of the reason for that is because in the process of obtaining a court order somehow and we don't actually have transparent reasoning why this is something that we've demanded to know from our judges wage is that perpetrators have been notified and even asked for their views on this so it's it's fantastic for them. It really gives power back to them and takes away from the Survivor, which is really not. Okay. So as far as I'm aware perpetrators are free to speak to the media.

Will European lockdowns work or are they too weak?
"So we have come out of a really long slog here in Australia especially in Victoria where we've had a very long lockdown and the payoff has been really low numbers of community transmission. Now here in Australia and in contrast Europe is heading into winter and the case numbers they are ratcheting up really quickly to the point where the UK and many countries in Europe are announcing really tough lockdown measures and so let's talk about that a bit Norman what are we? What are they looking at doing in England and some of those European countries. Varies a bit and it seems to be driven by a fear that their hospitals in ICU's will be overwhelmed. You've already got a significant number of beds taken up in France and Spain Britain is worried that the NHS the National Health Service, will be overwhelmed and I think the hand has been forced. But they're all coming into this late. So they're doing curfews. Don't think there's any country in Europe that's locking down schools showing who so school's Continue And I think that universities do in some places as well. So the education system stays open bars, restaurants that sort of thing close or our time restricted. So I'm not sure that anybody is really going for the hard. Stage four type lockdown that we saw in Victoria. And, it has to be said that's really the only thing that works. So the problem that you're is God and most European countries and are two problems. One is the borders are not properly closed. So the borders are not closed. You can go to lockdown, but new cases can come in all the time even though you might have border checks and people are not supposed to communicate got symptoms and so on. They do have open borders to some countries in the world, but it's a pre Philip. Britain, it's a pretty long list includes strata. Most of them seem quite sensible in terms of having quarantine free travel. But it's moving around a bit. But where else you might have trouble coming in from and in Europe itself, the borders seem to be largely open although it's up to each European country to say its own rules and by the time you're listening to this podcast this chronic. The rules could could possibly have changed. That's why I'm not really being very specific. Point being is that you need a lockdown of your country and your lockdown of people's movements. That the virus. Stays with the stews infected and you don't get new clusters emerging and there aren't very many countries in Europe that have got the testing and contact tracing regime that we're lucky to have in. Australia. and. The question is, are they going to put that in place? So you were saying before that the only thing that really does the job is really hard lockdowns luck we had in Victoria, but doesn't it depend on what approach that country is trying to take like we were hearing in the beginning this idea flattening the curves that we wouldn't overwhelm the hospital system is that what they're trying to do their just push just smooth out the number of cases a bit more without having to have really tough lockdowns just so that they're not having. Intensive care units different approach to Australia will certainly is a different approach to Australia. It's been all along they went the lifted, whatever they had to. Early they had some some period where people particularly Spain were just letting their hair down and we're paying the price for that now, and so that's all these European countries will achieve is a bit of the flattening of the curve if they're lucky and therefore a bit of. Heat of their hospitals in ICU's. But you're still going to have a lot of people who are very sick and they may not succeed as well as they should. Israel's done quite a good job. It was doing really badly with hundreds of thousands of cases and its case rate seems to have come down with a fairly significant lockdown. It has to be said in Israel. So Israel's a success story now having been a failure. And so it's been quite impressive how it's how it's brought it down. But the question is, will that happen in Europe and will it be enough or will it be too late and it's just out of control what other projections maybe not every European country but I know that the UK has daughter about the different scenarios. What kind of numbers are we talking about the sky's the limit? Really I mean Israel's an interesting example because you've got a small population of nine million or so people with several hundred, thousand cases. And that's what could have happened to Tori as well. You when you've got a non immune population, you can have very very large numbers and so at the moment, for example, in Britain as we saw that prevalence study that we talked about last week on Krona cast. In June after thirty thousand deaths, they had six percent prevalence of antibodies. So that suggests that six percent. Of the British public were infected with covid nineteen. Your albeit the antibody levels dropped over a period of time. So, there's ninety four percent of the population left infected. So that's a lot of people to go. So the sky is the limit unfortunately, and so the question then on the modeling and there was interesting modeling out of Washington State about media months six weeks ago, which suggested that once you got to about twenty percent. Prevalence of people who've been infected. So in other words that level of population immunity, I won't use. Herod. Amenity, here really misplaced tarum. With social distancing, you might be able to control the virus. But that's a long way to go twenty percent of the British populations millions twenty percent of the German and French, population is millions to get to that point and then you start to control it. So. There's a long way to go. Yeah. Really high price to pay for perhaps not the payoff that you need to actually stop the spread and remember that it was going size. The mortality rates come down as indeed it has because we're better treating. People were a and there are drugs now particularly zone which reduces the death rate and the other new drugs antibody drugs that will start to come on stream, but even so people are still getting the disease. there. Tonight on seven thirty avacado story of. radiographer WHO's worked in Melbourne and weeks after his. Infection which he caught in hospital he's still very unwell not able to exercise and really feeling lousy. So the burden on the community is enormous beyond people dying. So we're getting questions for me. It's not just about what's happening Estrella but also it's happening overseas and how it's asking, what do you make of the curfew measures in Europe where you got? Pubs closing at ten pm and that sort of thing why or how are those sorts of issues effective. So a curfew, a curfew by itself is not really going to do very much of anything. You've got to stop people moving around during the day as well as at night, and you do that by shutting POB shutting restaurants, shunning public areas that are. That are high risk Gymnasia and so on. And then a curfew on top of that in your say starting at nine o'clock through to the early morning. Restricts People's movements even more, but it's it's on the it's on the margins. It's not going to be the core thing that you do, and of course, no country in Europe is closing down schools, which means that you've got large numbers of parents circulating in the community each day taking the kids to school and picking them up unless, of course, the letting go by public transport with masks on, and that's the other thing is the extent to which countries are mandating. mask-wearing they should all be mandating mask-wearing to really reduce the spread as much as possible in public areas particularly indoors, and we've got a question from someone in New South, Wales who's having greeting anxiety. So they are asking if we got aerosol spread if I was to be in a room with someone for a long period of time, does it make any difference if I give them a hug when I I see them a does the one point five made a rule. That much. If you with someone in an enclosed space for a prolonged period will you should not get yourself into a situation where you're in a very poorly ventilated area in for an extended period, you should just not be in that situation. So it's fine being indoors particularly wasn't sure these days because the risk is so low, but anyway, your sittings gotta be ventilated possibly to to the discomfort of being to cold. So you've got through drafts and fresh air, and then the the risk is much lower. Now, if you give people a hug when you see them, then you're increasing the risk even further. So you should really maintain social distance touch elbows and not get too close because you're just amplifying the problems because there's no question does spread by droplets and close contact. So you're just making the situation worse. So to avoid greeting anxiety, you just stop hugging people kissing them, etc and you and you maintain a bit of distance. Well, it's time for on Koranic today if you've got a question policing leading new go-to. Dot Net air you slash krona cast click ask a question and mentioned current castle. We can find it still lots of questions coming in and we welcome them
First 'murder hornet' nest in U.S. destroyed in Washington
"Asian giant hornet that invaded the U. S detected here in our state a few months ago in Markham County there last week confirmation, of course, the nest found they plan to eliminate it. And they did now, the question. To find a queen in that is there more queens are more nests by the size of a basketball contained an estimated 100 to 200 Hornets. Lot of beekeepers around Puget Sound. I know what many musicians for Bee keepers some radio people. Todd Meyers is the environmental policy director of Washington Policy Center. He's a beekeeper. He shared some knowledge and everything he's been looking at here with their murder Hornet. And talked with talk show host John Carlson of our sister station 5. 70. K V. I. He started the conversation with the capture of the live be where they used the dental floss to tie a tracer device to it. So as a flew back to the nest. Yeah, So you talked about them, tying the transmitter. There is a photo of the person who was doing that with bare hands. Squeezing the hornet on and tying it on. Just for context. If my bees decide they're grumpy at me, and I get stung about 100 times. It will be very unpleasant. But I will live. Um The Asian giant Hornet. If you get stung 5 to 10 times, it will kill you. So that gives you a sense of how dangerous they are. And so you know, whoever is being paid to hold on to one of these with their bare hands and tie on the transmitter. Is brave and probably not being paid enough. So that gives you a sense of the challenge of not just finding them, but then eradicating them because they are very dangerous. Okay. They're about twice the size of a normal hornet. Where they native to because there aren't native to here. There They are called the Asian giant Hornet. For a reason. They come from China. They're in Japan on DH. They we suspect that they came over on some sort of agricultural shipment where they hit out. The first ones were actually found on Vancouver Island near Victoria on DH. Then they have spread and so they were found in Watkins County. Andrei, Let me ask you this flat out. If they didn't get them all. And the murder. Hornets survives. What changes Ah one people need to be more careful nest because they're very dangerous beekeeper who will have to figure out a way to protect Their hives. So they come up with strategies. You know, Like I said, this in Japan and elsewhere for a while, and so there are strategies to deal with him. In fact, State Department of Agriculture talked with lots of people in Japan who have dealt with these toe learn how to deal with them here, But things will change for people and for, um Beekeeper's so But I also think you know that that we will learn how to more effectively fight them and eradicate them. So, um I think we're just We may be just the beginning. But like I said, they've learned a lot in doing this and how to be effective and hopefully they can get more effective time. Couldn't they wipe out Washington's bee population, which has already faced several threats and has, you know managed to prevail. But would wouldn't murder Hornets me? Aren't they? Like you know an invasive thiss fish species? Sometimes you know that that can do terrible damage to native born. Yeah, there's there's no doubt that it's one more threat. I would say at this point, it's still just a threat. The other thing is that I think the University of Washington maybe Washington University, rather was a great beekeeping program, did a model and found that their range would really be sort of along the coast. Down to mid organ wouldn't go beyond that. Because the habitat is just not suited for them in the climate and other things like that, so they are very serious problem, But it's not at least from their modeling doesn't indicate that it would even go to the whole state or the whole country. And and I should point out that they don't pollinate. They don't make honey, right. I mean, you know, like yellow jackets and things like that, that occasionally I see a dead bees on the front of my hive. Yellow jackets have come and killed. So it's It's a similar sort of thing.
"victoria" Discussed on Book Club with Julia and Victoria
"So I spent a lot of time alone as a kid in elementary school. I was very much a bookworm, you know books are kind of keep me company and then Middle School, I got really into computers and Tech as a stereotypical so Silicon Valley kid, and yeah, I was very very nerdy in middle school. I would have known no Middle School Sherilyn I got along great. Oh man. Yeah, and then yeah, I think in high school, I you know, wow. Kind of came out of my home body self and started to become more social. But yeah, I think definitely in my formative years. I spent a lot of time alone a lot of time in my life ahead with my own thoughts. So yeah, so I think that's kind of where my introverted nature was developed. Hm. Yeah. Yeah, I I feel like Victoria and I talked about this all the time because our immediate and extended family Dynamics are so different jobs and like I always find it so fascinating because it really wasn't until I like went to college and I think in part being better friends with Victoria cuz I was high school where I realized how weird my family was cuz I grew up in like the most introverted family on the face of the Earth life just like it was assumed that you wouldn't want to do things that you were tired that you didn't want to talk to people like that was kind of the basic assumption was like No, they're probably going to say no and then it's a pleasant surprise if they say yes and like family conversations usually revolved around our areas of expertise rather than around like social gossip or like personal feelings or whatever. You know what I mean? It was very much like what we were learning in school and our parents would get excited about it over the dinner table, but like in terms of family Rules like we were totally allowed to walk our doors my brother and I would be alone for like most of the weekend cuz that was how we had the most fun and like we had a very quiet house and Everyone likes to do sort of solo activities and even when we would come together, we would like watch a movie together or do something that didn't really involve a lot of Talking Dead. And then anytime we would go on vacation or do anything with the family. It's like to this day always assumed that you are allowed to say no, you're allowed to opt out of family activities. Like that is the Baseline assumption like they're you know, people might be sad if you don't want to but it's always understood like oh, yeah, of course, they they can't handle that today. They had two birds. I was like, okay, I'm nineteen years old now. I think I can tell my family. I don't want to do with the family outing. We were like every weekend not every week most weekends that we would like do something that was used to be my feet as a kid, but once we got going I really I guess it was fun. I guess. I'm sure I would have opted out more often if our family Dynamic. Yeah, and I talked about it in like autism-related podcast where like it was like the ideal sort of home. Fireman for an autistic kid because it like all you know, it was usually cold and dark in our house. I like it's been all the time. I wanted a loan and like having a really passionate special interest in wanting to read all about it was like totally fine and I could opt out of anything that made me uncomfortable and.
Why the worsening pandemic overseas is a risk to Australia
"Say Norman it's really heartening to see in Ustralia that at local outbreaks are really coming down to really really levels but the case numbers each day are still high and that's partly because of returned travelers. So people who've coming back to Australia from other countries, many of which have caught lodge outbreaks of coronavirus happening there. We know that last time the big outbreak in Victoria happened from an escape from hotel quarantaine and the New South Wales Health Minister. Bread has it has indicated that he's worried about the potential for something like that to happen again what? Is that scenario and Health New South Wales also worried about the resource implications. I mean, we said before that a few weeks ago I got information from the raw prince Alfred that. Nursing shifts a week were be used at that point for Hotel Corentin, and that's before we upped the ante trying to get thirty thousand streams back before Christmas and as you say, coming from high prevalence countries. So the risk has gone up as the second wave in Europe has gone up. So the risk to us of returning Australians has gone up as well in proportion, and so we're going to see more people coming back who are positive and we want expanded facility. So. It's fantastic that we've got this facility, the heartstrings facility in the Northern Territory which apparently can be expanded, but it can take about one thousand people a foreigner right now that's not going to get you there in terms of Christmas, and getting all these people back and it requires medical resources so that people who are arriving back who might be sick, and in fact, there are people arriving back through sickness. One reason why they WANNA come back to get medical care and distributor. And that was the other implication for all prince offered is that some people were coming out of hotel quarantine to come into hospital For Surgery and other things nothing to do with covid nineteen because they were just seek and they needed help and they're entitled to it. So the question is, how do you scale and what do you do in the government? A report has a report on this and you can take a risk approach, which is that you say, well, if you coming back from Britain or Italy or France, then that's high risk and go into high risk facilities, but if you coming from China. Or Singapore assuming you're not in transit in Singapore that you've been in Singapore for a while obviously New Zealand and other countries than we maybe have a light touch you can quarantine at home we can do ankle bracelets you allow the authorities to track go track you on your phone those sorts of things that we can do but they're all got risk attached to them and we just going have to be really careful because we're all rejoicing Victoria opening up and through the Fall of nobody just the pressure of positive cases coming back we could be at significant risk of some cluster outbreaks. So we got the Howard Springs facility in the Northern Territory, which is great and elsewhere in it's mostly been done in hotels which really useful for quarantine but not purpose built for it. Do we need to be thinking more about the along the lines of the quarantine stations that we used to have a century ago? Well, yes, not can't imagine that the. Government's not thinking about that. So we have these quarantine stations the to I know best of the ones one of the Mornington peninsula in Victoria and the one on south, head, New South Wales, and they were designed for exactly this purpose in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century ships coming back from overseas, which might have had smallpox on them or infections that they didn't fully understand people went to the quarantine station and stayed there for a while until it was sorted out. They could be re purposed. They're not very big really in terms of numbers of people that you could take them. There are army camps. There are other things that you could do, but it's where you might be geographically isolated. It's hard for people to get away from them, but you look after humanely in reasonable comfort while you're quarantining in addition to using home corentin when it's much safer to do. So I think that you can look on this as a national project we want Australians to come home and we're gonna find ways of doing it.

"Despite her mother's influence Victoria had feisty temperament, this means that she had high energy and was very independent in nature. She had a big personality, but physically, Victoria was famously very short as an adult. She was only four feet eleven inches tall. At the time of her birth Victoria was fifth in line to the throne but over the course of her childhood in early Teenage Years Victoria's uncles her father's three brothers all died without having living children. This meant that when Victoria turned eighteen in eighteen, thirty, seven, she knew she would become the queen of Great, Britain and Ireland.
