    CV Central - 5/21/2020 - "The Dragon and the Eagle"

    Episode 73 is a review of the quickly deteriorating United States and China relationship that is advancing across all fronts and pulling countries to different sides as the coronavirus serves as a constant drumbeat adding pressure domestically in both nations.  As a major lockdown occurs in China's Northeast with fears of a new strain with longer time to appearance, we see a feud break out at the WHO, consumers not wanting to purchase from either country, trade fraying, mistrust growing, and escalation over arms and Taiwan.  As a Pentagon study shows America losing a future war with China and the People's Congress feeling pressure to push back with more than propaganda, two countries driven by mistrust, fear, suspicion, and the need to deflect blame represent a dangerous dance for not just each other but the entire world.

    CV Central - 5/20/2020 - "Cleft by Division: America's Political Problem Meets Economic Uncertainty"

    The seventy second episode features a review of the highly contentious partisan response amidst the question of how we build a functional economy that can be sustained in the face of pandemic and urgent human need.  We start by seeing how the locations where the outbreak happened shaped the public narrative and now we have a fight being set up as the false division of health versus economy.  People themselves report they want the choice for both as health should be covered and payments sustained to mitigate risk.  In particular focus are the unemployment payments which are now being attacked in certain quarters for making some Americans wealthier than they were before while working, which at that modest amount, should have us questioning much more.  With home building dropping, mortgage foreclosures still rising, and uncertainty bad enough before a second wave the Pentagon privately admits likely, why are so few people asking why we rush so hard to defend an economy that clearly needs to be rethought?

    CV Central - 5/18/2020 - "On Mutations, Receptors, and Transmission"

    Episode 71 looks at the most recent information about viral mutation, spread, and how it connects to us.  We start with the troubling outbreak of Kawasaki Disease, a heart symptom affecting children in Italy and New York.  As we come to see not just the different mutations, but how they oddly impact the functional proteins unlike any other coronavirus, we're reminded just how distinctive Covid behaves.  We see how eyes are impacted, how cats may be carriers, and are reminded of how disjointed policy has become with respect to the science.  A deeper dive into the ways Covid interacts with our cells shows not just ACE-II, but CD147 and CD26 are just the first suspected targets as we race against time and the disease in a war whose future we cannot predict despite our own dangerous complacency.

    CV Central - 5/15/2020 - "Coronavirus in Canada: A Comparative Study"

    For episode 70, we travel north to Canada for a comparison against what the United States experiences.  A more robust policy response including direct aid support has helped minimize suffering for most Canadians, although a terrible failure in nursing homes, existing outside their public health system in many cases, has driven the vast majority of their deaths.  We look at Montreal having many problems including the abandonment of elderly at one nursing home.  The bank has been buying everything it can up there also, but with 3 million plus already unemployed in the country of 37 million, a projected economy drop of potentially 40%, and debt quickly rising, the questions of what a re-open will permit are a problem up there as everywhere.  Food prices are rising, scarcity may become a problem, and the question of a recovery in the best of situations, even with a government more committed to the safety of their people, is uncertain at best and difficult to envision in the short of medium term.

    CV Central - 5/14/2020 - "Macro Trends for the Coronavirus World"

    We take the 20,000 foot view in Episode 69 as we look at the bigger problems with the economy and how society has to restructure itself to meet the demands of people which change less amidst a virus that is making us rethink much of how we live.  We start by looking at a Fed wanting to do more, a Washington incapable of doing anything, and how the original buying in strategy is reaching beyond where private capital will go as bankruptcies rise, profits and taxes fall, and demands for bailouts become bigger.  States are working in conjunction, debt amnesty is proposed, and solutions being mentioned now might prove possible in a second wave destroying hopes for a V recovery.  We see the questions arise about where people will live in a world where people are a viral threat, how automation means jobs are not coming back, and the thought of UBI as a solution to a world where people need money, businesses can't hire them, consumption is required, and government are asked to act.

    CV Central - 5/13/2020 - "A Question of Priorities: How We Ignore Covid at Our Own Peril""

    Episode 68 was supposed to be about the divergent policy responses caused by the political polarization in the United States.  After a serious look at just how well ideology is now predicting expectations beyond science, we see such American absurdities as the Right deploying a militia to defend a barber shop in Michigan, or the Left using the virus to decry toxic masculinity in mask usage, all ignoring this deadly pandemic.  Deeper research into antibodies show more compelling evidence of ADE, that the sequence of strains may convey either immunity or severity, and offers a startling but evidentiary backed thesis from Japan that says earlier strains are the biggest determinant in why some places get wrecked, others do not, and who is at risk going forward, with America and the West in bad shape.  If that's not enough, we also see evidence how ACE-II wide dispersal in the female reproductive system and fetal presence suggests earlier and wider dangers as this evolves unless we come together quickly to fight Covid instead of one another.
