Peru, UH, John Williams discussed on WGN Programming
The latest on the snow, the schools, the stocks and the fools John Williams Monday at nine. On WGN. Nobody better than John Williams. He is. I love being interviewed by John Williams. I banana show more times than I can count on. He's so good. So good at what he does. You know, I'm interviewed about pet topics. I mean, dogs and cats. If you don't know me, I'm a certified animal behavior consultant. I've been on this radio station for 20. You 23 years, something like that, and I've been interviewed, and I'm interviewed all the time. I'll be on Jim Bohannon show in about a week and a half. And I'm interviewed by radio personalities that radio stations all over the country. I am just saying all of that because John Williams is of level above. Everybody. He's just so so good. Sometimes when you have it every day. You don't appreciate what you have some of the text that I do have that we didn't get to hear if you can't travel without your comfort. Wrap snake or pony, then you're too unhinged to be out in public. Just stay home. And another says, just because the place is reporting no numbers, meaning covert 19 numbers doesn't mean there are no numbers. I know of two recent cases where someone obviously died of covert 19. And their family member told me no Cove. It was mentioned on the death certificate. Others say it's the other way around. And it's being exaggerated. I don't know which is the case for sure. I do know that different countries have different ways of reporting it different standards for which they report. Some countries don't even have the ability to test like we do. In American, most of Europe, So it really does very and we at the end of the day don't know. The World Health Organization offers the best guidance on that. I hope the offer you some amazing guidance 312981 72 100 if you want to speak to a Nobel Peace Prize. There. I said it. Okay, nominee. This is amazing. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I received. I know this guy and I received a message Ricardo from you just one day. Direct message on Facebook, saying, By the way I'm nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, this is Ricardo Torreblanca Zabala Gah. Hope I said that right of the core foundation. I think I say Congratulations. Huge. Congratulations, Riccardo. That's amazing. How does one get nominated for a Nobel Prize? You don't just walk out your door one day, and it happens that someone knocked at your door. Do you get an email? The view is that like Ed McMahon, you don't even know who he is. Probably because you're probably too young. Who knocked on everyone's door, Dick Clark. I think that that and said You're a millionaire now or whatever they said, How does it work? Well, well, thank you for having me here and giving giving me time to talk off about the things that I did, I did, and for in that I'm still doing in the country of Peru and also with Canada. The thing is that I was received a call from the one of the president of the Congress of the country of Peru on and he told me that he nominated me for the for the Nobel Peace price. And then I also received calls from the from the three different universities that also from the presidents of the university's letting me know that I was from united. It was a surprise for me, because what I do Eyes. It's just too is to create a change. I didn't know they were gonna nominate me. It was so surprised. Well, I guess we should back up a little bit. So what do you do? I know it has to do with a foundation called the Core Foundation. Unorganized ation that helps reach sustainable goals. What does that mean? All right. Well Core foundation is have a foundation that that I started. Um, and it works on six pillars that is education, science, high impact projects, technology, innovation and commerce. And what we do is we we connect the The university's from from from Peru on now we're expanding to Brazil. And we contact connect them to universities here, the United States and also in Canada and we create how impact projects or apply science that helped them develop economically and this science is related to energy environment. Food security. And the You know these data is that the government used the government in Peru uses the data for them to, you know, have more informed this state will make more informed decisions based on four for their community. So based on that work, we Uh, tackle one of the big problems that we are. The Peru has that is illegal mining, illegal mining. What he does is they sent gold like about two. Death two tons of gold. Uh and no $2 billion in gold. Uh, U. S dollars go outside from Peru, Uh and dad in that gold is financed by Narco traffic and terrorism. And by us creating these areas off the economic development, but we're doing is stopping and lowering that funding to get out of the country of Peru and And that's very important because that finance that that money financed narco traffic and financed terrorism around the world well, right when you think when you think Ricardo of when I think, anyway, probably not you but when I think of the Nobel Peace Prize I'm thinking of a war that's going on somewhere in the world. And there he is, Ricardo jumping in the middle in the country saying Stop, guys, this side that side! I'm gonna make peace. And and the Noble Peace Prize. I've come to learn through U isn't necessarily about that. It could be something different, and it's not only what you described that will hopefully change. What's going on with drug trafficking in Peru and other countries in South America. Broader picture is if you take a look at our world You. You take Africa, you take South America and Central America. And take for the moment South and Central America. It's in some ways in some ways a completely different world. They call us a developed nation. I hate that term because it makes us seem smarter. But because I don't think we are. But we certainly economically are in a very different place than nearly every country in Central and South America, and therefore the people who live there are at a very different places. Well, so is your goal and part to somehow change all that. Right? Um, the work that the I'm doing is saying the white less nominated was in for him. They call it one is for lowering, uh, poverty. The other one is, uh, to better their in the environment. Um, I unite countries case I'm working with the country of Canada and the United States and the other one is to create peace Congress. And that's what we're doing in Canada. Um and we started, um 2019 alright, well the windows I want to hear what this peace Congress is all about. We will And if you have any questions for a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, we're going to find out when he is going to hear that. He's won the prize. If he wins the prize. What does he win? Is that a gold medal? I don't know. I think it's a lot of money, too. If he doesn't win. What does that mean? We'll find all of this out. I know you're the edge of your.
