How Should We Identify the Nashville Shooter?
"We have. A very interesting sort of smoking gun problem in the mainstream media, which is the left wing media there. Synonymous. How do you identify the shooter in a Nashville, this monstrous murderer who murdered three children and three adults, I believe that is the number. Children three children ages 8 and 9 and three adults. At a Christian school, the covenant school for the record the children were Evelyn, deke house, Halle scruggs, and William Kinney. The adults were Cynthia peak, Catherine coons, and Mike hill. 61 60 61, children 8 and 9. I think the murderer was 26 years old. I'll verify that for you. So we have here a female who identifies as a male, so in the current parlance that's trans male. If you watch the mainstream media or read the mainstream media or listen to them, it was very difficult to ascertain that. Because in their articles, the many of them did not even use a pronoun. This is very difficult when you describe somebody who is the subject of your story. So do you say she took the gun or she got the gun illegally, she got there in a stolen car, she got there, or he got there.

Bitcoin at $1,000,000 in 90 Days? The Insane Bet by Balaji Srinivasan
"Bitcoin to $1 million in 90 days? That's what the former CTO of coinbase thinks and more than a few people are taking him seriously. All right Friends, welcome back to another Bitcoin breakdown bite. We are talking about obviously the same thing that everyone is talking about, which, as it turns out, might be the point. That is biology, srinivasan, the former CTO of coinbase, and generally highly regarded if out there sometimes thinker, he has predicted that Bitcoin will go to $1 million inside the next 90 days, largely because of societal collapse on the back of the banking system. So McKenna here sums this up, biology thinks, most banks are insolvent in the U.S., Bitcoin goes to 1 million 90 days, hyperinflation is imminent, converted 99% of net worth to Bitcoin, U.S. Civil War happens, effing wild. All right, so we obviously today are going to get into what exactly biology is talking about and then all the responses and I'll give you a little bit of my take at the end of it. So, a few days ago, biology put up this tweet called the bit signal. He says, how do you ring the fire alarm on the Internet? How do you show it's not a false alarm? I'm putting up the bit signal. Now, this first version of this tweeter, this first tweet was basically a request for people to share the best charts, graphs, statistics that show effectively how screw the current financial system is, the type of thing that biology argues you wouldn't get from normal mainstream media and he was going to give a $1000 in Bitcoin for the best thousand tweets. He is arguing here that the existing system, the central bankers, et cetera, have hid insolvency from us and they're about to print a huge amount of money in order to save themselves from that. And so Bitcoin is likely to be the recipient, but more than just Bitcoin, it's about the underlying story. So that went up on March 16th. Then the next day, on March 17th, someone says, I'll bet anyone $1 million that the U.S. does not enter hyperinflation. James medlock is a neoliberal guy or whatever, I guess he says social Democrat in the streets, market socialists in the sheets. And so he has this bet on Twitter and biology says I will take that bet. You buy one Bitcoin, I will send 1 million USD odds 40 to one odds as Bitcoin is worth about 26 term is 90 days. Blah, blah, blah, blah, and all the terms and stuff. And this just set the Internet on fire.

Raz0rfist: Trump Can't Pay Hush Money, That's Hunter's Job!
"I'll say one thing that kind of struck me from just that little clip we opened with, which was the president's reaction to the news that he was going to be arrested this week. He didn't happen yesterday on Tuesday, but allegedly New York police are talking to the Secret Service that could happen any day. It could happen tomorrow. It could happen Friday. But tell me if I'm wrong. Look, I'm a guy. I'm happily married now for 26 years. But no woman I've been associated with prior to my marriage, any of my girlfriends or my trysts, none of them would I publicly in front of millions call a horse face because I think it would look bad on me. Therefore, I'm not really sure he had even a tryst with her because I know the president and I think he wouldn't want to be associated with anybody who he thinks is ugly. Am I crazy razor fist? What was your first clue? Was it the first judgment that was overturned against her? The second, the third of the fourth, crying out. I don't understand what the message is here. Is it like a slap on the wrist silly Trump? You can't pay hush money. That's Hunter Biden's job. Like, seriously, what is like the narrative here from the New York DA? I don't understand this.

"So we're going to likely see this continued slowdown out of China as we see this very staunch conservative leadership take hold. Rachel, thank you so much for joining us. You're with the globalist on monocle 24. Finally, on today's program, Tony Craig is one of the world's most distinguished contemporary sculptors. He draws on both natural and industrial materials to create new forms of sculptural language, a monocles Robert bound, sat down with the artist to talk about his creative process and rob began by asking Tony how he knows when a work is complete. It's a chain of decisions you make along the line. There are junctions. There are a bunch of interesting and more crucial decisions one makes when you're doing a drawing or a baking something. And the work I'm doing now is based to a lesser or greater extent on my experiences with the last work I was baking. And I realized on a case of copying or trying to remake what I've already done, is the path you take. You get to a junction, you have to go in a particular direction. That is a change that changes the four, and it changes the meaning of what you're doing. More is really surprised I've ended up here. What I'm doing now. I just turned the camera around just so you can have a brand new look at it. And this is just coming from the foundry and I'm just looking at it for the first time since yesterday. I'm thinking Tony I would never have my life imagine I was going to make that work and so that's probably what I would do it. Well, that's wonderful to see this. Thanks for showing us that Tony, looking at your face on the Zoom call here. It's lovely. It's a picture. I can see that that's a beautiful work. You're pleased with that one. Where did that what's the story of that? I mean, I'm just generally, I mean, people are always asking one materials and there are endless material and at least since the beginning of the 20th century, there's been a whole process of providing new materials for making sculpture with or even more particularly in redefining sculpture as a way of looking at the physical world, the material world and giving it meaning and whatever. And there are no boundaries anymore. So really, it's really a question of finding out what it's what it's about and what things have some importance for once a person. So every material has its own range of possibilities and things you can do. And the materials and you've always been about the materials, your work has obviously changed over the years from the stacks. In fact, tell us about it because I love those works. You were using everyday materials in inverted commas, but giving the impression of time and of fossilization almost. It was like seeing a kind of cross section of a piece of mantle of the earth's crust or something like that. Did you kind of have a change of was it just a sort of slow evolution in your work or was it was there a moment when you kind of a new form suddenly presented itself to you? Suddenly suddenly that sketch in the morning became something different. Well, you know, I had the opportunity and the privilege of having a really good education in Britain. I went to a really good art school and met a lot of people that had fantastic conversations with. So when I started 1968, 69 in art school. I mean, I knew nothing about art history. I just wanted to draw and I just wanted to make stuff. I really didn't know about anything. But it was an amazing experience. I started at that time in Britain. There was Henry Moore and then Anthony Carroll then Richard dawn gave in Georgia. So the super high level of interest in sculpture already before attorney Craig Eden made anything. And you realized it was real content. I mean, that's the thing was about form and content.

"You in Dallas. 7 13 here in London, 1513 if you're listening in Tokyo. Now just how ironclad is the U.S. commitment to protecting its allies, South Korea and Japan. Senior figures from all three countries meet today to discuss their response to the continued noisy saber rattling from North Korea. I'm joined now by John Nelson Wright, who's associate professor in Japanese politics at Cambridge University and a career foundation fellow at chatham House Heller jug. Good morning. Good to have you with us. So tell us who has met today and what do we know about what's being said? Well, we've had meetings between essentially the three deputy foreign ministers of Japan, South Korea, and the United States. Wendy Sherman, of course, is in Tokyo to talk to her Japanese and South Korean counterparts. The purpose of the meeting is to send a very clear signal that the U.S. and its two principal northeast Asian allies. Shoulders are shoulder and dealing with what is expected to be potentially a 70 for your test. From the DPRK ahead of the midterm elections in the United States. And of course it comes on the back of a series of missile tests. 27 tests over the course of the year range of cruise missile tests, ballistic missile tests, more recently by North Korea, the expectation is that Kim Jong-un is seeking to use these provocations. To keep the United States on the back foot. And therefore, it's very important given the vulnerabilities of both Japan and South Korea in the face of North Korea's increasing military capabilities to demonstrate that the alliances, the two alliances are as solid as possible. And the most welcome development of course is the improvement in dialog between soul and Tokyo. And this is, I think, symbolically impractically an opportunity to reinforce that message. United with a common enemy, what do we think will be achieved by this? I mean, you mentioned a very important dialog between South Korea and Japan, but in terms of the way that the United States and South Korea and Japan can operate together in the face of a threat from North Korea. What can actually be decided? Well, I mean, we've seen both trilateral joint exercises and also current exercises going on between South Korea and the United States. All of this, I think, is an attempt to send a signal to Kim Jong-un that the alliance remained militarily strong. And that there will be a proportionate response if the north does anything it would be considered to be even more provocative. And nuclear test, of course, would not be new. It would be the 7th nuclear test from the DPRK. And the traditional route, of course, is to use the United Nations and the sanctions regime, problem there, of course, is that we've seen a reluctance recently by both China and Russia to impose further pain on the DPRK. And therefore, the only recourse that the United States has, but it's a significant one is to strengthen military cooperation to ensure that the north doesn't do
Monocle 24: The Briefing
"26" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"And welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me, Andrew Muller, Italy appears on the verge of having its first female prime minister in few, if any other respects, however, is Georgia maloney's apparent triumph in this past weekend's election a triumph for the forces of progressivism. The party she leads the brothers of Italy are populist conservatives whose narrative of nationalist grievance contains an ill disguised subtext of xenophobia, having won just over 26% of the vote the brothers of Italy are poised to govern in cahoots with the far right league of former interior minister Matteo salvini and the center right Forza Italia of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. Let's get the latest now with Monaco's Europe editor Ed stocker who Ed joins us from Milan. At first of all, are these results anything other than what was widely expected? Are there any surprises here? Not really, Andrew, to be honest with you, it was widely touted that this was going to happen. Because of the way and it's remarkably confusing, but the way the Italian electoral system works is that it favors coalitions. And so parties that are able to jump into jump into bed together and form these coalitions are other people other parties best suited to sort of carrying out victory and in this sense it was pre written really because lager, as you mentioned, Italia teamed up with fratelli de Italia and were able to form a coalition. The center and the left ravaged by infighting were essentially unable to form a coalition that could meet this right-wing one. And so barring Georgia Malone have fratelli d'italia party falling off a cliff. It seemed highly likely that they were going to have enough votes and enough percentage to carry this forward. The democratic the center left Democratic Party did a little bit worse than some polls were suggesting the populist 5 star movement that looked sort of dead and buried had a surge and ended up doing particularly well, particularly in the south of the country. But this was what we expected. It looks like Georgia millennial will be the next prime minister of Italy and obviously with it a sharp turn to the right for the country. I mean, as listeners will have heard you correctly note in the intro to the show, the brothers of Italy were more or less absolutely nowhere as recently as four years ago. Is there success exclusively attributable just to the fact that they've been, well, the best known party not in government these last four years while this grand technocratic coalition has been in charge. I think it's got a large part to do with it. Obviously the reasons are complex, there are people who are fed up with certain things. So of course they're going to be people who think are not that not enough is being doing is being done in terms of immigration. They're going to be people who want to see tax cuts. They're going to be people who like some of the populist policies that this party has been championing. But yes, I think a large reason and a lot of people I've talked to have had this feeling that, you know, the politicians that have been in power have not achieved anything. We've seen disastrous coalitions within left right leg up with the 5 star movement. We've seen a so called government of national unity overseen by Mario Draghi after that. But in the end, it boiled down to personal grievances infighting and inability to stay together in a coalition. So I think they're going to be a lot of people who voted for maloney as a protest vote because somehow she was able to brand herself even though it's not really true as this outsider because she stayed out of those last couple of coalitions I was referring to and didn't dirty her hands, if you like, and all the problems that they've been with Italian politics. Obviously being in power is a very different thing. We saw how popular the 5 star movement was back in 2018 and although it didn't do as badly as we may have expected this time around. It's definitely not the popular party that it once was and a big reason for that maybe because it joined the mainstream and actually had to deal with the real life in politics. So it'll be interesting to see once maloney has the scrutiny of being in power and having to deal with everyday problems in Italy and there are an ever growing list, you know, how she deals with them. Well, if maloney should happen to find Italy any more actually governable than Italian governments usually do. Do we get any sense of what she actually wants to accomplish? What will change? I mean, obviously a lot of the coverage of her certainly internationally has been rooted in concerns about her political background, which is a rickety in the extreme, but do we know what she actually wants to do policy wise? And interesting question, indeed, there's still a lot of question marks. We do know that she has or the center right has majorities in both chambers. And that, in some senses, is the best sort of guarantee of stability that Italy has had in a long time. If this coalition is able to govern together, there could be some stability for some time I say if because it's a big question mark because despite the show of unity in the lead up to the election, there are still serious differences among the different members of this coalition, but one mustn't forget that fratelli the Italia brothers of Italy is the senior partner now having, as you mentioned earlier, Andrew 26% of the vote, whereas lager and Fortis Italy just had 8 and 9% respectively. In terms of policies, we know immigration is probably going to play a big part and that's perhaps no surprise there. That is a sort of easy thing to rally the populace around. She was very outspoken, has been very outspoken about immigration like Matteo salvani of LEGO, of course. There was sort of competing on that front to see who could be the most outspoken. She talked about a naval blockade against boats arriving from African shores. She's since toned down her language. But I would expect that that to be a big part. There's also been big talk about lowering taxes and the economy. So I think taxes will play a big part. And of course, there are social issues, you know, there's been a lot of talk about whether she would look to clamp down on abortion. She's said that she wouldn't do that, but she wants to provide people who are thinking about having abortions with more incentives not to have them. If they're in economic difficulties, how can she improve those problems they're facing in order for them not to have to make the choice of having an abortion. So in some senses, who's been quite cryptic about how she'd be about that, but expect definitely social issues to play a part. The thing about maloney is she sort of has taken on different personalities depending on who she's talking to. She, in the last few weeks, in the lead up to the election, she looked at her moderate her language, clearly appealing to the centrists and the over 40% of Italians right up to election day, who still hadn't decided who they were going to vote for. And then you look at her perhaps at a rally, she gave one in Andalusia in Spain in front of vox supporters, where she was really fired up and talking about the LGBT lobby. And so the lots of different faces of Georgia meloni and it'll be interesting to see which one which personality she decides to be when she becomes prime minister. Finally, and just as quickly as you can add one foreign policy question she is going to have to confront reasonably briskly is Italy's attitude to Ukraine. Obviously up until now, Italy has been pretty much solidly behind the European approach. But of course, within that coalition that she will be leading, we have figures like Matteo salvini, Silvio Berlusconi, who have long documented and Holly unsavory histories of outright Putin worship. How is she going to try and style that out? Exactly, in fact Belle is only just a few days ago, made a video where he sort of suggested that Putin was pushed into this war against his will by the electorate and the breakaway regions and it was just something he had to do.

"About energetic sobriety. So the Paris metro will announce this week its plan to save energy. And I had no idea. I mean, it uses 2.4 billion kW per hour. That's the equivalent of the energy consumption of 1.2 million homes. That is to say a city like nice or Bordeaux. And just this year, they are going to pay a bill of 300 €1 million just for electricity and gas. So the choice is quite stark. I mean, they could cut down on trains. But the number of trades. But that's not possible because now enough trains already to transport all the Parisians and the people from the suburbs. So what are they going to do? Of course they are going to lower the temperature. So expect to be almost freezing in Paris buses, especially as the doors open all the time. So the temperature will be decreased to below 19°. They are going to change 250,000 bulbs, and two things that I thought were interesting. More interesting than are there measures, lighting will be dimmed. That is to say, if you don't think you need new glasses next time you're on the Paris metro, it's just that they have dimmed the lights. And also, don't think it's you that you're walking more slowly than usual. The speeds of escalators is going to decrease two, so we're going to be liking and perhaps in the silent movie film. So that's going to drive though, of course, is people running up the escalators to keep warm and also just to get there at speed, but a lovely byproduct of that might be losing weight. And if you don't lose weight that way, apparently, according to le monde, you can just drink vinegar. Well, yes, there's a fabulous article on vinegar. Okay, so vinegar apparently has reached an nobility status. I mean, it's been on we've known vinegar since the antiquities basically, but vinegar, the way we consume it today actually was born in Orleans in the 16th century. But what is new is that now you have vinegar tastings like wine tastings and chefs have been using it far more far more in the last ten years and sometimes it's a key ingredient in some of the recipes.

"Good morning and welcome to the committee will come to order. Last Wednesday, the House select committee on intelligence called a hearing. They wanted to talk about the proliferation of commercial spyware. You are now recognized for your opening remarks. My name is corinne cannonball. I am the youngest of 6 children. And Paul recessive egina. The name might ring a bell. Don Cheadle played him in the movie hotel Rwanda. My name is Paul rusesabagina. I am the house manager of the most luxurious hotel in the capital of Rwanda. The most luxurious hotel back then was mean Colleen. And it's famous because it's where more than 1200 Tutsi took refuge during the 1994 genocide. Outside the hotel walls, machete wielding militias killed some 800,000 rwandans in under a hundred days. Paul recessed by risked his life to make sure that the people taking shelter inside the hotel all survived. It is not like anything I've ever seen in 30 years as a reporter. It is, I think, the standard against which all future tragedies will be measured. Defiance during the genocide isn't exactly what brought careened Capitol Hill last week. It's what a father did years afterwards. My father was given a platform, and he used it for good. He was critical of the increasing violations of human rights of rwandans. In other words, he was critical of the government of Rwandan president Paul Kagame, and the fact that a world famous human rights ambassador like Karen's dad was openly criticizing the president, while that didn't sit well with authorities in Kigali. Eventually fled first to Belgium and then to the U.S., and that might have been the end of it, had it not been for an ill fated trip he took to East Africa. In August 2020, Kareem's dad boarded a chartered jet, he thought was taking him to Burundi. And it wasn't until the plane doors open, that he realized he had landed in Rwanda. He actually started to scream and thinking that perhaps the pilot would hear him scream very loudly and come out and help him. In fact, the pilot of the plane came out and wished him good luck as he was being dragged out of the plane. President Kagame has a long history of silencing his critics. When I was in Rwanda reporting for a book I was writing back in 2003, I saw soldiers break up campaign rallies for the opposition, political opponents talked about constant death threats. Kagame's critics had this way of disappearing. So having recess a buggy suddenly find himself rendered back to Rwanda, it was part of a much larger pattern. After a very short trial, the government sentenced him to 25 years in prison. In Korean started a very public global campaign to get him released. Which appears to have made her a target too. Though in her case, instead of an elaborate kidnapping, she found herself on the receiving end of a state of the art threat. A kind of spyware called penises. Everyone in my house at home, when they come into our home, they're so worried about Pegasus now that we just put everyone's phones into microwave, I don't know why it makes people feel safer, but it does. It's the brainchild of an Israeli company called NSO group, and it has this uncanny ability to turn any phone into a spy. It can be turned on remotely to secretly listen to all your conversations, read all your texts and track exactly where you are. Korean now a U.S. citizen testified on Capitol Hill about that. She's living proof of an increasing threat to the world, commercial spyware. Now you no longer need an intelligence service to do sophisticated surveillance. You just need the money to pay for it. We are looking at a slide back towards autocracy and authoritarianism around the world. And in my mind, spiral like Pegasus is kerosene to the flame. I'm Dina temple rest, and this is click here. A podcast about all things cyber and intelligence. Today, Korean story, the commercial spyware business, and what it all means for a company at the center of it all, NSO. Stay with us. I'm Gregory Warner, hosted the podcast rough translation on our new season. We're telling stories about the cultures of work. The 9 to 5. It's a myth and rest around the world. I came into this totally prepared to defend my American productivity. At work, the new season of the NPR podcast rough translation. Every year the human rights foundation has a big conference called the Oslo freedom forum. Think of it as a kind of human rights festival, a chance for people who want to overthrow tyrannies to meet people who already have. That's basically how they advertise it on YouTube. Let us rise up against Iran. We want a world where people can speak freely. Today, I would like you to join the cast and I want you to join our revolution. And earlier this year, a cybersecurity watchdog group set up a booth at a conference. And instead of handing out stickers and tote bags, they offered an unusual service. A free check of your phone for spyware. It's never pleasant to receive news that you've been hacked. It's like receiving bad diagnosis. John Scott railton is a senior researcher at citizen lab at the university of Toronto, and he was one of the people at that booth. So we have developed approaches that allow us to do fairly rapid checks of devices without invading the person's privacy too much. Okay, so you kind of have the rapid COVID test of Pegasus? That's exactly how we describe it. And then if we find something of interest, then we're going to go do the PCR. And when Jon did the PCR test on careens phone, it came back positive. This was shocking, of course, because I need thought that American numbers could now be targeted. The NSO group has had publicly that it doesn't track U.S. phone numbers, but traces of spyware appeared on Korean U.S. phone anyway, and it had been there for a while. The discovery that he had actually been infected in September of 2020. So that is just about a month after my father had been kidnapped. I think it was a confirmation of something that she had suspected, which was they were even more intensely targeted than they already knew. Karina shared the Rwandan government has put NSO's Pegasus by where on her vote. Do we know for a fact that the kagami government is a client of NSO? This is a really good question. I think we know a lot of reporting around this case. We certainly see strong circumstantial evidence pointing in this direction. Obviously, the government has denied it. But it's par for the course that governments typically deny that their customers are this kind of technology. Which is exactly what the Rwandan government did. I would like also to make a comment on recent interrogations against Rwanda. That's Rwanda's minister of foreign

"Now the last time the mother of zaya Thor saw her son was on Friday over Zoom, he was in prison in Myanmar, seeming healthy and smiling, she said, he does for reading glasses, money and addiction. She had no reason to suspect that within days her son would be one of four prisoners to be executed in Myanmar, known to the rest of the world as democracy activists, they were convicted behind closed doors of terrorist acts against the army. Let's find out more here's doctor Ronan Lee, an academic and author of Myanmar's Rohingya genocide identity history and hate speech, and a regular voice on monocle 24, a very warm welcome back. Good morning. Good to be with you. So just tell us what happened this weekend. Well, did you executed four people? It's a big change in terms of the junta's approach to executions of prisoners. It's been decades since prisoners have been executed within Myanmar. We know there are 15,000 political prisoners been arrested since the coup in February of 2021. So this is quite a concerning development. This would be terrifying for those prisoners and for the families and friends and loved ones because they'll of course be concerned about their fate. There were four executed the no sense that there was any sort of fear or run or just legal process that led to the decision. It was on the basis of a political decision by the Myanmar generals to execute some people and it's a closed court process of course and that was the decision that was carried out yesterday. Perhaps even more terrifying for the 15,000 that are in jail as well was that in January, the jaunty sent a message to prison wardens to clean the gallows at your prison. So this execution, I think, is about instilling terror in people and using terror and fear as a means of trying to quell opposition to the military coup. Tell us a little bit more about the four who died this weekend. I mentioned one man, a former hip hop star turned lawmaker and ally of Aung San Suu Kyi. So arguably a reasonably high profile man, but these four who were chosen in particular why. Well, two of the four were less high profile, and they were, they were executed because they allegedly targeted and killed a junta informer. And acts like that and people within Myanmar targeting staff and military figures has been affecting the junta. There's a people's defense force now within Myanmar that's taking on the junta militarily. It's having some success. And I think that's something that the junta is determined to stop. The other two were quite high profile, one kojima would be a nationally recognized figure. It household name within Myanmar leader of the 1988 uprising that almost toppled military rules, the uprising that brought on the sense of cheetah political prominence. It would have been would have been well known throughout the country in all parts of the country. Pierce Thor, who's. Mother was so surprised by that this is happened in such short order is similarly high profit member and member of the member of the parliament within Myanmar. Best known to young people within Myanmar is a very popular hip hop musician involved with the hip hop band acid that one of the first hip hop bands within Myanmar, which regularly criticized military rulers through their lyrics. And I think that this is an indication of the military's attitude towards the jail poets, the jail journalists, and they gel musicians because they don't want to be critiqued for the actions that they do. And they're terrified of what people say about them because they're worried about their legitimacy within me and they know the people don't want them. And they don't want a situation where poets and musicians are making fun of them and critiquing their policies. It's a very sad development for Myanmar. In some ways, though, it's an admission of what the junk has been doing seeds the day of the coup. I mean, these are executions of four people in prison. But the judges targeted civilians since day one. I mean, this is nothing new. There are thousands of people who have been killed since the day of the coup. The junta targeted peaceful protesters with sniper fire. So it gives you some sense of what the joint is like, but the development where they're actually executing people who they've got within their control in the prison system, that is new, and I think that's an indication that the junta is feeling threatened and feeling weaker than it has been for quite some time. The military crackdown on peaceful protesters has been going on for more than a year will ever since they took power in February 2021. The fact remains though that simply executing four people, how much of a renewed chilling effect does it have on people's ability or desire to protest or push back? I think not the effect that the generals would hope and would expect. I think what's happened since the coup and because of the targeting of civilians, we've seen over the last 18 months. I think the people of Myanmar have decided that this is a generational opportunity to remove the military from power. This is their chance. And if they don't take it, they'll never be rid of these people. I think that's the attitude within Myanmar. So maybe had this been done at the very beginning, you might have seen a potentially different reaction from the public. But I think at this stage, the public are all in. There's live military engagements between.

"That autism diagnosis has helped grace understand herself. Has helped her realize that she's not a bad roommate or a bad coworker or a bad friend. It's allowed her to see herself for exactly the way she is. And it's allowed grace to see herself more clearly during moments when she isn't feeling so great. Moments when she would have previously shamed herself for having such a strong reaction. It validated the panic attack I had in a Costco one time. I don't do well when there's a lot of people around and there's a lot of noise. Which Costco is just this condensed bundle of a million people making a lot of noise. All the time. From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. all the time. And so every time I've been in the Costco, I would be in the store for maybe 30 seconds and I'd suddenly feel just really dizzy and lightheaded and whoever I went with. It just boiled down to, I would just make sure I could see the back of them. So that I didn't like wander off and get lost somewhere. And then by the time I would get out, I would be so exhausted by the end that I just would not do well for the rest of the day. So I will never have a Costco membership because I will never willingly go in unless you bribe me with a hot dog. That's the only thing from Costco that I am cool with is the $1 and 50 cent hot dog and soda. I used to have just one of the small single serve blenders, but I feel like it was designed really poorly because the blade of the blender was in the bottom of the cup and I do quite like smoothies. It's one of the few ways that I actually managed to eat fruit. So I'm like, okay, I need to invest in a nice, solid blender that can do exactly everything I want. So I got online and I did all my research and I'm like, okay, I want the blade to be in the lid, so it's easier to clean. I want the cup to preferably be larger. And I want it to come with multiple cups that I can just buy and also buy extra cups. So I narrowed it down to the exact blender I wanted and like, okay, this one is at Walmart. It's in this aisle. I'm going to go there after work someday and pick it up. And so I go to Walmart one day and I'm standing in the blender aisle. And it's not there. There's like the little tag that says the blender brand on it. It should be right here and there is nothing. And I walked up and down the aisle like ten times I searched behind boxes. I double checked that there were no other blender aisles. This is the only aisle that I have to surge. And I looked on every shelf, checked every box and there's my blender is not here, it's said it would be here, and it's not. The one time I want unfettered capitalism to work in my favor, it doesn't work. And I just eventually got to the point where I'm standing in the middle of the blender aisle in Walmart and I don't know what to do now because they don't have my blender. I had already had this all figured out and what do I do? And it maybe it took me a solid 30 minutes to realize great, there's another store in town where you can get this blender. Go check that store. But for some reason, when my mind had made the plan of okay, I'm going to go check Walmart, see if they have this blender. That was the only thing my mind had, and it didn't allow for that flexibility of, well, maybe there's a different story. You could look at or maybe you could order it online because now I went to the plunger right then. And it's not just blenders or the stress that naturally comes with making a big purchase. This kind of fixation happens a lot to grace. There's a specific brand and flavor of breakfast burrito. And I can't do any other flavor even if it's the same brand. And this is the same flavor that tends to be sold out the most at my grocery store. God damn it. So that's like, well, I guess I'm just not getting breakfast burritos. Meeting new people in a way that allows her to feel connected to them can still be hard for grace. Like even doing this interview, for example, so for this interview, I knew intellectually that you guys are not mean you're very nice people. You're humans who have had really crappy days and really good days. And so there shouldn't be any tension there shouldn't be any nerves because you're all very nice. But that's completely separate from the emotional aspect of I am freaking terrified because I appreciate these people in the work that they do and I really don't want to make an idiot out of myself in front of them. And so it's just trying to hold both of those in my mind of, yeah, I feel terrified even though I know I shouldn't be. So let's just see how this goes. I think in a room full of people I've never met before. In person, there's a different aspect to it because I think I get more conscientious of how I'm holding myself or the fact that I can't really stay plugged into one conversation and so I tend to end up bouncing around from one conversation to the next. So if there are three conversations going on, I'm like holding all of them in my head at the same time..

"I'm Nora mcenerney and this is terrible thanks for asking. In one of our march 2021 episodes, we talked with a woman named Cynthia, but her experiences as an adult living with autism. Many people with autism are diagnosed at a young age. According to the CDC, the average age of diagnosis is about four and a half years old. Cynthia was one of those kids, diagnosed when she was a toddler. Today's guest grace is also autistic. That's the language she refers. So it's what we're using. And grace reached out to us after hearing that episode last spring because unlike Cynthia, grace wasn't diagnosed with autism until she was 27 years old. It wasn't a doctor or some other medical professional who opened grace's eyes to the idea that she might be autistic. It was a TV show. Was atypical in your Netflix recommendations? How did you end up watching it? And when did you start to identify with that main character? I think it was in my recommendations just because I don't remember really how I came across it, but I think it was from the very first episode the moment that you find out that Sam is really into science and especially Antarctica in penguins. Like I really related on that. And then I also noticed how the socially awkward aspects that you see in CM, I also relate to that. And so I just, as I watched the series continue on, I just became more comfortable with relating to this character. I watched it and I'm sitting there being like, I get how he feels like I understand that or like I'll watch it and be like, that's me. That's me. I think there's this one scene where his sister is about to start school at a new school. And so he goes and buys her a pack of pencils to be supportive and stuff because, you know, you need pencils for school. And I think an average person would see them and be like, oh, well, that's not really a big deal, but I'm that kind of person where when I know somebody needs something like I want to be supportive and I'll be supportive in the weirdest ways. Grace knew from a young age that she was different from her 5.
"26" Discussed on Jesus Stories
"Jesus is at the feast of tabernacles in Jerusalem at the temple, he went there secretly at first, but then made his presence known with some rather pointed teaching. This teaching confuses some people in the crowd, but others hearing him believe in him. The one constant is that the religious leaders of the day attempt to trap him into saying something that they think they can use against him. And as we closed last time, these leaders had brought a woman caught in the act of adultery and sought Jesus determination as to her fate, shouldn't she be stoned as the law states? Or what? Jesus challenges the leaders in such a way that they all leave without stoning her. A Jesus also will not condemn her. If you haven't listened to that last episode, this would be a great time to step back one, and hear that exchange. Jesus then turns to the crowd, speaking these words, I am the light of the world, if you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness because you will have the light that leads to life. This is another claim from Jesus equating himself with Jehovah God, and it ties in with the feast of tabernacles, which is still being celebrated at the beginning of the festival there was a lamp lighting ceremony, a priest would light three huge torches on a lamb stands in the women's court of the temple. During the time when the nation of Israel wandered in the desert, God lit the way at night with a pillar of light in the cloud, later through the literature of the Old Testament, God is pictured as light, now Jesus is claiming to be the light that these lamps represent. The pharisees are not buying it. You make these claims about yourself, they say, thus they are not valid. They were referencing back to a requirement in Jewish law that any claim must be established by at least two witnesses. Jesus claim was just from him only, at least that's what they think. Jesus response to their charge, these claims are valid, even though I make them about myself, for I know where I came from and where I'm going, but you don't know this about me. You judge me by human standards, but I do not judge anyone, and if I did, my judgment would be correct in every respect because I am not alone. The father who sent me is with me, your own law says that if two people agree about something, their witness is accepted as fact, I am one witness and my father who sent me is the other. Basically Jesus says that what he is saying is valid. They can't understand because they judge or they evaluate by the standards of the earth. He judges by the standard of his father, Jehovah God, who, by the way, is the other witness, since there are two witnesses, Jesus himself, and the father, Jehovah God, the testimony is indeed valid. So the religious leaders ask, where is your father? This is kind of like the first century equivalent of who's your daddy. Jesus responds by telling them that, since they don't know him, they don't know his father either. If they knew him, they'd know his father. Then John, the writer of this section of the story tells us Jesus made these statements while he was teaching in the section of the temple known as the treasury, but he was not arrested because his time had not yet come..

"I mean, I think there has been a slight acknowledgment that this has to be handled in a more sensible way. So if you're looking at the letter that Boris Johnson sent to Emmanuel Macron last night, he did say, you know, we need to have intensive talks about this. He's going to send pretty Patel, the Home Secretary to Calais to meet her French Belgian and Dutch counterparts he's offering a higher level meetings on this. And I think what he did is to put some things in this letter that a minor Macron can agree to, given what many Macron was saying yesterday talking about using more technology having drones having airborne surveillance and having things like joint intelligence, which, you know, some of which are supposed to exist already whether they work is a different question. Again, we want a couple of these issues where they may not see eye to eye. So he put forward a formal request to establish joint patrols on the French side, though interestingly Boris Johnson said he wanted to see French gendarmes working with the UK border force rather than with UK police. So which is a slightly different request, but still would have the UK border force working together on patrols. And I think one thing that he is less likely to get agreement on is something called a readmissions agreement. So the idea that you might want to send people back once they had tried to get into Britain send them then back into France for processing. Because as Emmanuel Macron pointed out yesterday, most of these people, they don't want to seek asylum in France. And if they did, you know, they would be able to do that. And France is also pointing out there's obviously we can't patrol all of these beaches a whole stretch of the northern French coast, 24 7, all of the time. We just haven't got the ability to do that. And just building on that and yes. And the fact that the prime minister in France Trump cast exe that the problem needs to be dealt with at the intergovernmental and European levels. What is the likelihood of that actually happening? Given now that they have this hideous tragedy to spur people into action. Well, I mean, we need to understand why it's happening. It's happening because France is actually protecting British borders. The roots remember for years back by truck by train by ship by the tunnel have been blocked. That is why the migrants now choose at that very hazardous and very dangerous a journey by sea. It is true that this year we've seen 25,000 migrants refugees asylum seekers reaching the coast at the British coast, but it means that about 50,000 had actually been blocked. Also, as you mentioned, the great majority of migrants arriving in France, one, two stay in France for reasons that, you know, they speak a little language. They've got family or contact. Only a very small minority want to go to Britain. And it's very difficult to send them back because they want to go to Britain. Now, we should talk about the elephant in the room, which is the two K agreement sign in 2020 as ago 20 2002. And I'm afraid even the center leaning great newspaper pneumonia yesterday where mentioning that perhaps it was high time that Britain was looking after its own border rather than living yet to France. I don't think that would be a solution because suddenly, you know, you would have even more migrants making that perilous journey to Britain. But you know, in many ways, the situation of the two K agreement has shielded Britain from international obligation. If you look at figures, asylum seekers applications, only 20,000 of them for Britain, 80,000 for France. So, you know, yesterday I read in British newspapers that Britain was swamped with applications and it is simply not true. It's small numbers. I think the lute agreement from 2003 needs a little bit of explaining. Are you happy to step in? Because it did cause issues, didn't it? Because it basically said that each country sets up immigration control points at the borders of the others, doesn't it? Well, you know, on the French side, basically, France is responsible for policing the border. I mean, the British border is in Calais, basically. That's what the two K agreement is. And for the first time since the 16th century. And it is a very long coastline. We're talking about a hundred kilometer. And of course, it's also a question of resources. It was estimated that at about a 120 million pounds each year for the French government and of which only a fraction is paid by Britain. And it's, you know, it means a lot of resources. And you can't put a policeman every meter of that coastline. And as I said, we have this problem this current problem because all the roots have been blocked by the French police. In order, you know, in order to protect a Britain. The issue at the heart of this appears Terry is that you're never going to stop people wanting to come to the United Kingdom to seek asylum or to seek a better life. The deterrence clearly aren't working regardless of which agreements, and there have been placed. And the British and the French currently in a very diplomatically sticky place anyway because of Brexit. I mean, they're not coming to this from a good and healthy relationship standpoint. There are so many calls now saying that actually what needs to be done is an effective, safe route for asylum that does need to be set up so that regardless of the numbers and regardless of how politically or practically expedient it is, people don't die. Well, that's obviously important. And yes, I mean, I also remember having gone to tsonga, which must have been at the turn of the century, which does seem like a long time ago and seeing people who wanted to come to Britain and telling me that they desperately wanted to come to Britain because they said the sky was high. And you know, they had this very idealistic view. I think the trouble is at the moment that although a lot of people are saying, well, we need to sort out safe routes and ways to do this. The part of the political pressure in the UK certainly on the conservative back benches is heading in a different direction. They're saying, well, look, because we've had Brexit, we are no longer party to some of the agreements. We don't have to follow treaties that previously applied. Obviously, as any as the two K agreement still exists for now, they are saying we should have some sort of an offshore center where asylum applications can be processed outside of the UK. They're politically that may be what they want the trouble is getting other countries to actually agree in various places around Europe and elsewhere being touted as this you'll be the country where we process asylums because in those countries are saying, well, no, thank you, deal with your own problem..
Monocle 24: The Globalist
"26" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist
"On the globalist to talk business with nabila Ahmed. Asia finance reporter for Bloomberg news. Welcome back to monocle 24 nebula. Morning ama how are you? Very well. Thank you. Let's look at our first story together. Hong Kong rejects plea from global banks to scrap zero COVID. Hong Kong is stuck in this situation, isn't it? Because it's zero COVID strategy. Has meant that it is closed off to so much of the world. Yeah, look, Hong Kong has said that it will stick to its zero infection strategy because what they really care about is reopening travel to the Chinese mainland. So they're saying that other places that have adjusted their strategies to coexist with the virus have seen increases in infections, hospitalizations and deaths. And that won't help Hong Kong in trying to open the travel corridor with Mainland China. So we've got a statement here today from a spokesperson of the government saying that they will continue to strive to reach a zero infection and sustain the various stringent and necessary anti epidemic measures. Now what does this mean for Hong Kong's business and ability to open up to the rest of the world? This is really honking in Hong Kong turning away from the rest of the world and turning towards China Emma. This is this announcement comes after the Asia securities industry and financial markets association in Hong Kong issued a public warning over the city's strategy. They said over the weekend in a letter to the financial secretary that the hard line approach has put Hong Kong status as a financial center. It's economic recovery and competitiveness at risk. And almost half of the global banks and asset managers that operate there are considering moving staff and functions out of the financial hub. They called for a phasing out of the quarantine rules easing restrictions on travel along key corridors like to the one to the U.S., Europe and UK, but Hong Kong is staunchly sitting to its strategy. Right. Okay, and we all know where that direction is going to go. Let's move on to a story that you've been covering in Bloomberg about business cities. And the way that they support a rather don't support women. Yellow businessweek analyzed how 15 global cities rank for Korea women. We're talking about cities like London, New York and Hong Kong. These were all graded in 5 areas. Safety mobility, maternity provisions, equality and wealth. And it shows that each of these cities are really failing in several different ways. Toronto actually came in first and São Paulo was last. We had London 5th and New York 9th. And, you know, even in places where it's relatively safe, for women to walk the streets. Women are being underpaid often or discriminated against at work. We were talking about it. I think the ranking was up to 5. And Toronto, the winner only comes in at 3.66. I mean, there's still a long way to go. Where do the steps need to be taken to lift people up? You absolutely right. So even in Toronto, which was described as culturally diverse dynamic, exciting. We've had the advocacy groups there saying that women are underrepresented their outranked and usually out earned. They face an array of structural berries in the workplace. So you've got things like maternity leave that need to be addressed, workplace discrimination and harassment and safety. There are still two for your women who feel safe walking the streets of the city they live in. Let's move on to hertz. I mean, anyone who's got a higher car recently has been given the rather difficult option of getting an electric car when you're not entirely sure where or when you're going to charge it. And it's rather a breathtaking experience by all accounts. Hertz is going to really jump into this though with both feet. Yeah, so Curtis placed an order for a 100,000 teslas. It's the first step of a plan to electrify its entire rental car fleet. It's the single largest purchase ever for electric cars. And it represents about $4.2 billion of revenue for Tesla. So this is a lot of money that hurts is splashing out. So available from early next month in the U.S. and some parts of Europe. You can actually rent hurts Tesla through a hurt. And is anybody intending? I mean, how much is the anticipated market supposed to be for this? And given the fact that we all want to drive electric cars, we just want to be able to make sure that they can carry on moving if we can charge them. That's exactly right. Look, and hertz has said that they want to be the leader in transforming people onto electric vehicles. They said that they want to work with every manufacturer to help them launch these vehicles and drive the secular shift towards electrification. So they're obviously making a huge bet and previously that you've had a supply is like General Motors, Nissan and Ford and Tesla has now has now leapfrog to all of them in terms of her suppliers. So hertz is definitely taking a bet on which way the world is heading in which way it wants to lead its customers. Nabila Omar, thank you so much for joining us. You.

Wrote, produced and play guitar. On a lot of those iconic hits. He was a close collaborator and a good friend of Otis Redding's. I Got to speak to Steve on the 50th anniversary of Otis Death. Here's that conversation. Does so much to talk about with Otis here. I want to. I want to start at the beginning. Can you just tell me the day that Otis Redding came into your life? Yeah, well, very quickly. We were waiting on a session with Johnny Jenkins in the pine toppers. Yeah. So stacks, you know, rhythm section bucatini. Um, Jesus, whatever we're at that time, pretty well known for having several hit instrumentals under our belt, and so, uh, Johnny Jenkins manager thought would be a good idea to bring Johnny Down two stacks. And lo and behold, weird sort of giving up. That was way before phones in Texas and all that we knew they would do, But we didn't know when they'd show up. So we went outside on the sidewalk to smoke a cigarette. And all of a sudden this Cadillac pulls up, pulls down past us, and this big, tall guy gets out goes around to the truck. It starts getting stuff out of the trunk, and I and I see he's got microphones. And so I go running down there said Hey, man! Hey, Hey, Hold on. I said we got microphones inside. We don't need those. Oh, really? So he was He was always writing and he was sitting up like it was a gig. Well, I thought he was a driver or the roadie. Whatever you want to call them, you know? And but he was the lead singer Johnny Jenkins band. During the session. Al Jackson, R drummer came to me and said, You know that guy that drove Johnny up here and I said, Yeah, he said. He's bugging me to death about getting somebody listen to him, saying already told him that you do auditions on Saturday, not during the week. But he keeps insistence. So at the end of the session, Al comes back to me up under control room and he said, You know, I told you about that guy and I said, Yeah, I don't have time to listen, he said, But he's bugging me to death. Get him off my back, please. Boy. That was a great move. I said Okay, gentlemen to come down to the piano, and he did, And I said, Okay, play something, he said. I don't I don't play piano. I played a little gut tired, but I'm not playing the piano, He said. Just give me some of them Church quads. And I said like this and started playing triplets. And he said this and he started saying in these arms a man want whoop. Stop right there, he said. You don't like it as an artist. Hold on. Don't move, and I ran up the control room. I said Jim Stewart at the time, the owner and the engineer. I said, Get out here! You've got to hear this guy's voice. And so he did He come down. He heard it and saying these arms of mine and Jim says, We've got to get that on tape. The guys were already leaving the studio duck down years later reminded me, he said. You came outside yelling at me to get my base back out. We had this song We had to put down real quick, He said he was putting his base and he's drunk. We got. We got the track right here.

The airports have been advised to leave the area immediately. So what other things currently like in the country. Melissa fung is a canadian journalist filmmaker and author back in two thousand and eight. She was captured by the taliban and held hostage. Melissa's recently returned to afghanistan to make a film about women therefore aljazeera here is what she told monocle. Twenty four so. Georgina godwin about her efforts to help afghan women. I feel so helpless right now. Just trying to get some my friends on the last flight to canada and being told that the taliban not allowing any afghan nationals into the airport only people with foreign passports or allowed even if you have a letter of these from canada you can't get on that plane you can't get into the airport and so i just feel so i just feel so helpless and so it's personal. These women are my friends. I care about them. They're scared they're in hiding. And i can't help them right now. And it's just been really emotional and frustrating couple weeks since the taliban took the country. And i'm not the only one feeling this one day. Somebody who write the story of this community of women around the world networking trying feverishly to get their friends out. And we're all heartbroken. That's the bottom line wolf minister funk speaking to us earlier on delays edition of the globalist concerns about the security of people in afghanistan have been hastened following a warning from the us president. Joe biden about the threat post by a group called isis k. So what should we know about them. But rogers is the author of irregular war isis and the new threat from the margins and he joins me now. Welcome to the program poor. So could you start by telling us about isis. Gay ho closely related. Is this movement to isis. And what is the main difference between them. It's difficult to say how close because in many ways isis itself stretches across quite a lot of the world in lots of relatively small groups there is an overall leadership happened here but essentially. It's not clear whether this is almost something of a franchise rather than assault of tightly organized. Hierarchical body is almost. Certainly not that dude. It has activities right across a hell. It is linked with boko haram in nigeria it to certainly linked twist development of violence just groups in mozambique on the eastern drc and it has also been active as an overall group in role for example the philippines where it took over the marawi in bangladesh where it was responsible for some restaurant bombings and several other. Parts of the world and isis is still active in syria and iraq. Chrissy proposed to be as many as ten thousand followers. Most of whom have gone to ground as far as aniston is concerned. It's as being active there for some years in pretty small numbers and as you said in the introduction isis k. Is essentially a daggers drawn. As far as the taliban concerned having said that the being occasions where because of familial loiters and connections as being local compromised with essentially is is k. Is the loose branch of of isis overall. in eastern afghanistan in the district often owners. Car san district tennyson so isis k. Isis san likes to present itself as the isis presence across afghanistan pakistan. A whole the numbers are quite small. Aware quite spoil. The officials urine type figures. Reckon five hundred one thousand paramilitaries that may have swollen by people coming in from abroad to help. The taliban and also the thousands of people have been released from prison which may include some of them so it is a group which has considerable potential if small and in the current circumstances does present a threat to the us forces us more about the relationship between the taliban and isis gay. How much do they actually share. Very little in a way. I mean if you would take assault of the spectrum If you have the taliban cells who are primarily afghan orientated nationalist. They certainly may have in the low thousands of people coming from outside to aid them including a week paramilitaries from xinjiang province of western china. But overall they are very much a nationalist crew the really originating with the patron in pocket. afghanistan ruler. They do go across. Good go across the border to pakistan Within that to have early in addition to that you have al qaeda which has probably a presence while the old have conscious. Don't go up into a few weeks ago. Claims that al-qaeda had a presence in fifteen provinces. Listen summer them. They're working closely with the taliban. The relationship is being at times uneasy but not impossible. Then you have a number of armed awesome opposition groups and you have isis k. of all the groups isis k. As the one which is openly antagonistic to the taliban claiming that his apostate group not least. Because there's been even prepared to deal with the americans and others won't does is k. Wanted achieved enough company. Star wants to be as dominant as possible and possibly use it as a base for outside attacks. It has this rare advantage so to speak of the us coming to it. It's attack us base afghanistan but they've they're heavily protected now. The us is stuck at the airport with six thousand troops and as a possible target. Which i think is. Why probably is a real threat. In spite of what politician may exaggerate the problem. Here it's one specifically for the americans and the british as well. He's not global security threat as well. It has the potential at isis on. Its own possibly. But the point is it has spread in a number of different countries as indeed has al-qaeda doesn't have a sort of a major base in has a small one in northern pie in northern nigeria but overall it's part of a process And one has to face the idea that this twenty year war on terror is over anything like over is wrong because the underlying conditions why these movements can recruit are still there and if anything getting rather worse. That's was paul rogers or threat security expert. Thank you very much for joining us here. in monaco. twenty four on you're.
