My guess is that they lost electricity in that area.....I didn't hear what Judy said about the 20 samples either, audio was pretty bad!! I live in central NC and we've having pretty serious wind gusts even here.
Audio was ok with added speakers if you have a laptop, though i missed most of (had to go somewhere). It is going to be made available on the Cheney site later. It cut pretty suddenly. I wonder if we will get the rest? Maybe not.
As one of the Uk xmrv +ves I know that Dr Judy can not say much about the UK results as they were doe through VIPdx. I am thinking about enquiring how to release my results to her so she can. I hope this is possible and I would hope that others tested in the UK may do so to but that is up to the individuals. It is on my long, ever expanding, never done, to do list.
I think she's making a stronger and stronger case why Imperial study was invalid - but its hard to follow on the fly. She also added more technical stuff about the immune response and XMRV. Other than that it was quite similar - if better done. She seems much more fluid.
Sound quality was pitiful. I hope we can transcribe it though. I really get much more by looking at the transcription and listening at the same time. It's a good thing my brain didn't always work this way.
I didn't think to refresh so had no video, only audio. Sounded to me like she wasn't mic.'d or her mic. wasn't turned on because someone sniffed very close to the camera, and there was soooo much room tone, making me think it was onboard mic. all the way. Big mistake. BIG.
Anyway, Judy was wonderful, as ever, I thought. I really appreciated how she addressed the testing issues so specifically even harking back to HIV and the CDC advice not to test because there was not treatment
And the whole Cooperative Diagnostic fiasco...
and, and, and,
Go Judy, Go Judy, Go Judy, Go! :victory:
It was painful to try to listen to it (have no headphones and no speakers on laptop) but worth all the aggravation (and onslaught of illness symptoms) to hear such reassuring words from such a good scientist.
I still have a question that I don't think has ever been answered. Judy has said that XMRV is not contagious although it is infectious. How does anyone account for the outbreaks that lead to ME/CFS? Has that ever been discussed or am I just missing something?
