  • Yeah, Hi, I'm Carla Zeus with your daily down.

  • The middle delivery of world events Our show starts with news from the pharmaceutical industry.

  • The drug company Pfizer says it's moved a big step closer to a breakthrough in the fight against coronavirus fighters, one of many companies that are working on a coronavirus vaccine.

  • It says an early look at research indicates it's shot is more than 90% effective in protecting people from catching Cove in 19 fighters in the midst of its Phase three trial, when tests are carried out on tens of thousands of volunteers, the disease continues to spread, though at different rates in different countries, health officials say.

  • Last Wednesday was the first time the United States recorded more than 100,000 positive tests in a 24 hour period on the country's seen that several times since then, according to Johns Hopkins University.

  • The U.

  • S has reported around 10 million positive tests in all since the pandemic began early this year, and health officials have blamed more than 237,000 deaths on coronavirus in America.

  • Many people who catch the disease have no symptoms from it, though, and officials estimate the overall survival rate for coronavirus is more than 99%.

  • Still, because it appears to be deadlier than the flu, there's been an international race to prevent its spread, develop treatments from existing in new medicines and manufacture an effective vaccine.

  • Has Pfizer done that?

  • No one knows yet.

  • A nonprofit consumer rights organization criticized fighters announcement.

  • The group, Public Citizen, says publishing early and incomplete information in a press release is quote bad science.

  • It adds that more data is needed to prove the vaccine is effective against serious cases, hospitalizations and deaths from coronavirus.

  • Pfizer also says more research and safety information needs to be gathered.

  • If it's vaccine has proven safe and effective, the company says, it will be free to all American citizens.

  • It's unclear, though, how many of those citizens would actually get it.

  • In a CNN poll conducted last month, 45% of Americans said they would not try to get vaccinated once a drug becomes available.

  • This is the same storm that brought so much havoc to Central America with mudslides, flash flooding and extremely powerful winds.

  • Yeah, yes, in you know, they are no SE Mahan does a pretty aggressive There are no longer Ramos is the severe Noel Tomatoes campus Library.

  • Is one Theo Mahoto?

  • Yeah, purple A tsk Salima.

  • Just a petro, expensive.

  • I see the ball back.

  • This is 12th trivia.

  • Bee stirring is the time be Fire With Fire is a quote from what Shakespeare play Henry The fifth.

  • All's well that ends well, King John.

  • Or as you like it, this line is from the Life of Death of King John, which Shakespeare published in 16 23.

  • That's likely where we got the phrase fight fire with fire and those Shakespeare men it differently prescribed or controlled burning is fighting wildfires with fire.

  • People intentionally burned certain areas so that when a wildfire gets there, it has nothing left to burn and can't spread the downsides.

  • Sometimes controlled burns can go out of control.

  • They can worsen air pollution, possibly threatening the health of residents nearby.

  • But a Native American tribe that does this in California says history proves its advantages.

  • Yeah, For generations, members of the Caddo tribe in Northern California have embraced fire rather than fight it.

  • We try to bring back like, family based burning in our area, which would be traditionally how we would do it is like having families burning their village areas and having that responsibility and having that knowledge of like, when and how to burn it.

  • The Kadak intentionally light fires to clear brush and vegetation in wildfire prone areas.

  • They say it not only reduces the impact of future fires but makes trees and plants more resistant.

  • They feel it's a crucial tool for the community, and they want to be able to do it.

  • Mawr and on their own terms.

  • Vicky Preston is a technician with the tribes.

  • Natural resource is department.

  • A lot of our well being is is very much connected with, like where we live and how the land is doing.

  • You just feel a lot safer when you're able to do those prescribed burns around your places.

  • It's been really a real bummer and just been so riel like hard seeing like places that we were wanting to burn, burn intensely and wildfire.

  • The Kadak have to seek permission from and work with the U.

  • S.

  • Forest Service to do prescribed burns because the government owns most of the land, According to the tribe, the California Air Resources Board also says burn smoke could create unhealthy levels of pollution if managed incorrectly.

  • Their regulations say, like no burning at certain times or no, this and that, then it's been something that we've had to work under.

  • We've had to get permits for.

  • They've gotten a lot of flak over for even wanting to dio, and so that's been a struggle for many years.

  • In a statement to CNN, the U.

  • S Forest Service said they support their tribal partners as long as they follow prescribed fire rules and safety.

  • Mhm yeah, California on the 12,000 acre forest fire in the south of the state, the debate over how to handle fires has lasted decades.

  • Three U.

  • S government outlawed burnings and Native communities with Weeks act in 1911.

  • During that time, the U.

  • S Forest Service also pushed a fire suppression policy.

  • Firefighters put out more fires instead of managing them.

  • Experts in fire ecology say this removed natural fire from the landscape, allowing brush that could fuel future fires to build up.

  • And it wasn't until the 19 fifties, when the U.

  • S government started to take prescribed burning seriously.

  • So instead of having a suppression only policy everywhere all the time.

  • They adopt a policy of what was called fire by prescription that they would try to restore good fires a swell as prevent that Factors like climate change and human development in wildfire prone areas have complicated reintroducing prescribed burns back in California.

  • Yet the cottage tribe and some experts say the benefits of prescribed burns usually outweigh the downsides.

  • In 2016, the U.

  • S Geological Survey and the National Park Service found using prescribed fires across a handful of national parks in California, reduced fire hazards for several years after its use.

  • We need Thio Seymour funding for for the work.

  • You know more crews, more community based efforts, more attention to tribal practices and cultural burning we should be looking for and taking advantage of any opportunity Thio learn from tribal communities and to work with them.

  • But I also know that prescribed fire needs to be used strategically and in a targeted ways at the right times.

  • If we're going to actually have an impact, Yeah, this was the front steps you walked up here, the Qatar Garcia, in the consequences of extreme wildfires, firsthand, happy camp, where a large portion of the tribe lives, lost dozens of homes and buildings due to a wildfire this year.

  • But the tribe remains hopeful.

  • Prescribed burns will become the norm.

  • You know, I'm realistic.

  • That is gonna be hard and realistic that, um, whatever work I do is also something that has to be handed off to the next generation.

  • It's been said that the traffic on Parmelee Gulch Road will only slow down when pigs fly.

  • Well, the man who owns property in this part of Jefferson County, Colorado, made a flying pig.

  • He used paper mache, a fiberglass pink paint and lipstick cause lipstick on a pig, and it's working driver's air.

  • Slowing down to look at it.

  • The owner plans to leave it up all winter and possibly make Maura's long as people keep tapping the brakes when they see him.

  • Last time I saw, a flying pig was at a barbecue food fight.

  • Now don't grunt at me or bust my chops.
