"addis" Discussed on The Rich Roll Podcast

"Like I want to say, no, you don't understand. Addiction was trying to destroy my life. These efforts make my life better. They're completely different. But of course, there are similarities and overlap. And if I'm not rigorous, that relationship can get out of whack. And the other things, the other buckets in my life that are important will suffer. And so I'm always like trying to maintain a healthy relationship with all of these things. And I'm not always successful at that, but how do you think about that? As somebody who's in recovery and is so driven. And so ambitious in these goals that you're seeking at age 51. You hit the nail right on the head. And as you're saying that, I'm reflecting on my own decisions and wondering if, in fact, that there is a lot more deep work that needs to be done in this endurance stuff in essence is prolonging me from having to do the other work that I need to do to kind of deal with the psychological and emotional issues that I have because I don't, like I said, I don't profess to have all the answers, but and yeah, I've convinced myself that this is the best this is. It's all going right. But in my mind, I know that there's things that can be better for sure. And I think that really the person who probably takes the most amount of shit for this is probably my wife because and it makes me emotional to even think about because she's my biggest advocate and supporter and at times she is getting the worst of me and. Something that for sure. These, again, these conversations are all part of the process and part of the therapy. And I hope that if someone's listening to this and relates to anything and that they're getting that life is an Instagram like that's just a small snapshot of like a reality and you know I think that more so than anyone is my wife probably recognizes that is like, yo, this is a lot of things you can be doing better. The good news is endurance sports is a pretty great vehicle for personal growth and all that time spent alone in reflection with an elevated heart rate. I just know for myself is critical to my own mental health, but also gives me that ability to kind of like free associate and get a little bit more objective on the things that I'm running away from because it can be an out of whack relationship with endurance sports that teacher then becomes the escape hatch, right? Like you can use it to run away from a bunch of stuff. And Shroud yourself. With a victory lap or whatever and say, this is great. And I love it. But when you're really honest with yourself, you're like, yeah, but it's easier for me to go out and crush it than it is to deal with this other thing that I really don't want to deal with. I will tell you. And that's true of all of us. 'cause growth never ends, right? There's always more layers. I'll say this that, yeah, that's the, you know, you hit on so many important topics, but on one hand, like the endurance sports and the relationships I've built have basically given me the life I have and I can't stress to the listeners enough like you have to surround yourself with people that you admire and respect and this finding endurance sports and having success there was a way for me to connect with like minded people that have changed my life. My best Friends in the world are from endurance sports. I have so many deep relationships with people that I love that I wouldn't know from doing that if I hadn't been involved in this, but you're right. There is a certain level of escape by almost putting off work that I know needs to be done, but I'm using the endurance as like a bit of an escape or a distraction from things that need to be addressed. So like I said, this all part of the therapy for me is sharing these stories and being so open and honest, even at my own detriment. My wife will be like, I can't believe you shared all that. I'm like, who even cares? I'm like, hopefully someone gets something out of it, but you know, in recovery, they'll tell you you're only as sick as the secrets. And I appreciate the honesty. Yeah. And you got four kids at home, right? You got a daughter who you adopted from Ethiopia and then you got four three boys. Yeah, we adopted my daughter. She was four months old. Newborn baby. And Addis Ababa when we, when my wife and I initially got married, like my wife, I married my wife because I knew that she wanted the same things I wanted. And I knew that she would give me the family and the household that I didn't have as a kid that I so desperately desired. A safe, stable house with loving parents. It was just my idea of heaven. I was like, this is what life is. And you know, I will say this and I say to people all the time, like marriages and relationships take work. You start out dating your best friend and then you introduce children into the mix. It's like you dating someone your best friends, you're doing all this cool stuff. And then all of a sudden you're running a deadly serious business together. Someone's got to get up with the kids. Someone's got to feed the kids. Who's going to go food shopping and all of a sudden it's like, yo, I can't stand you. You're the worst team player ever. I don't have that. My wife is the best business partner ever. And I might be one of the worst because I just, I'm so, I have so many things going on, but I knew this was her dream job. She wanted to be a wife and a mom, and she's the best at it. And when we first got married we were like, okay, let's start a family right away, which we were both down with. I think I was 37. She was 34 when we got married. We adopted my daughter at I want to say I was about 40 and she was 37. And we're trying to have kids and it's interesting because you spend your whole life hoping someone doesn't get pregnant and now you're like, all right, it's go time. We're definitely going to get pregnant right away. One year, two years, three, one in vitro, two in vitro, 7 in vitro cycles, three miscarriages. My Paul wife, it was like everything she ever wanted and it wasn't happening. In my mind, I'm like, it's going to happen. Don't worry about it. I really believed it would happen, but she was inconsolable at times. But we, when I first met her, I had told her I want to adopt kids as many as I can afford. Because having been through what I had been through and then the life of chaos and anxiety that I had as a kid, I was never comfortable. Never. I never felt on Christmas I'd be concerned about something. It would just, there was always something like uneasy going on at this frigging nut house that I lived in. So when I met my wife, I said, if I can change someone's life, I desperately feel like it's my obligation to make a difference with someone, as many as I can afford. And she was like, I want to adopt kids too. So the minute we got married, we started the adoption process. A lot of times, people are like, oh, did you adopt because you couldn't have kids? No, we adopted. We've tried to adopt many more. We've been adoption is such a dirty business. But we started the process and sure enough, we get a call one day that we were approved for two and we got a call saying, hey, we have a newborn daughter. She, youngest, we have a scene at the orphanage in hawassa and just sell the virus a Baba. And when you do that, they give you a health report and all this stuff. And I just remember thinking they sent the picture. And they're like, okay, we're going to give you the health report, and I said, well, I don't need to help report. And they're like, no, no, you got to make sure I said, if you had a baby, and she had something wrong with her. What are you going to do? Like, that's your baby. I was like as soon as you told I was like, she was severely malnourished, had giardia. I was like, super malnourished. And distended belly weighed like 7 pounds. I think at four months, really small. And so we go over there to get her and my wife lived there for two months with custody of her. It was crazy because at the time when we were there, I was like, this is so hard we get into the hotel and to the guesthouse. And in Addis Ababa, and they have big hotels, but they didn't want us to stay here because they didn't want too much attention on these white families adopt in black kids and they just didn't want they didn't want to draw attention to the fact that we were there two months with this newborn baby. For whatever reason. So they say stay in this guesthouse. And to say it was rough would be an understatement every night the lights would go out, they'd fire up this big diesel truck engine

"Know it's the best word hybrid, but it's definitely the word. I think we still need people who still need people to people business with the biggest at the end of the day if I have to explain to Russia for instance, our position toward what I need to have people to people because this does kind of contacts. You can not replace it. But on the other hand, you have to be ready to be digitally present. So I think we have to be hybrid. We are not hybrid enough right now. I think we are two classical. We are to definitely classical with archive sometimes, so we have to invest on digital, but again, hybrid is a solution. And when you think about that, are you benchmarking yourself against other nations, where you think, okay, they're doing a great job digitally, and maybe you're still spending a little bit too much money on bricks and mortar because I often feel when I speak to people at other foreign ministries, not just classical diplomats, but at a time when talent is a problem. I think many people say that actually, okay, I can go and work for a big digital company. I'm going to get enormous salary. And maybe I'll have an okay apartment, and I'm going to get paid in shares, and I've got a struggle a little bit. If I go and work for a foreign ministry, well, okay, I'm not going to get the highest salary, but I'm actually going to have a fantastic office if I'm based in Addis and I'm going to have a nice resident. So is there a point of attraction as well that maybe having the physical having the trappings of good design when it comes to diplomacy are still important? Yeah, definitely. And you know, at the end of the day, it's all about sexiness. Is it safe to be the diplomat nowadays? I would say that.

"U.S. State Department this weekend ordered all non emergency employees and their families to leave Ethiopia It's another sign of the worsening situation near the capital Addis Ababa as a year old Civil War appears to have reached a critical point and Pierre's Ada Peralta had just returned from a reporting trip to Ethiopia and he's with us now from his base in Cape Town South Africa to tell us more aider Thank you so much for joining us Thank you Michelle It sounds like things are becoming dire What can you tell us about the latest developments Yeah so look the rebels have had some big victories and fighting continues The government has escalated a bombing campaign But the rebels are now about 200 miles from the capital Addis Ababa and they are threatening to continue their march And what happened at the UN Security Council tells you how serious this situation is For months now the Security Council has been unable to agree on a single joint statement and on Friday China and Russia finally relented and decided to join a statement that called for an end to this war They say that the war threatens the stability of the country and the region and they called on the parties to negotiate and to stop using quote inflammatory hate speech and incitement to violence and divisiveness Wow well what are the chances of this expanding into the capital Look that's the hardest question to answer Ethiopia is a country that has seen many wars and Addis has historically been spared the worst fighting At the beginning of this war the government promised a fast quote law enforcement operation but everyone knew this was going to be a hard war because all of the fighters in this conflict are battle hardened And indeed a year in it has been horrific rights groups say that there has been ethnic cleansing and the deliberate targeting of civilians And now the rebels have set their sight on the capital I spoke to niam in select who was once in opposition leader in exile and he is now a government insider and I asked him if this war was a mistake Let's listen If you don't fight this war then the country would have disintegrated If that is a mistake then I think holy mistake Well you know from that clip it doesn't sound like there's much prospect for peace Yeah I think that's right I mean the language is existential It's historic and you heard there even religious The government believes if the rebels topple the government Ethiopia which is the second most populous country in Africa the only one not to be colonized will be torn apart And the rebels say that this government and its allies have already waged an ethnically driven fight against their people And if the government is allowed to continue they say they face extermination And look let's not forget that there are a bunch of other simmering conflicts in other armed groups that are fighting alongside the government and the rebels And those alliances are by enlarge of convenience So even if there is a military victory in this war which seems unlikely it is very probable that the fighting doesn't end there That is NPR Africa correspondent Peralta.

"Com. I don't update it all that often, but I think the book is on there. I went to your website. Yeah, there's a link, I think it's available on Amazon. And I don't do social media, so that's about the only way. You have like 6 extra hours in every day over all of us, so congrats for that. Well, Dan, thank you so much for coming on the show. It's great to meet you and I love your work. Thank you so much. Thank you, Ben. I've really enjoyed it. So that was Dan Addis, and I hope everyone who listened to it has had their heart warmed and is at least two or three IQ points more intelligent having listened to him. He's awesome. Hey, Ben, you know what time it is. Don't. It's time to pay the bills. I was doing a bit. I totally knew what time it was. We got to thank our sponsor, aperture, maker of fine LED lighting products. Some that are very high end professional products. Others that are more entry level. Today I want to talk about one of the more entry level products which is called a amaran P 60 C and this is like a tiny little one by one sort of panel. So like one foot by one foot, they basically took their more expensive professional nova panel and shrunk it down and don't charge all that much money for it. I think I may have mentioned it in a previous time, but it's worth mentioning again because it's $349. And one nice. I mean, there's people who are granted the go to Amazon, they'll find some cheap really low quality light, they'll spend maybe that much or less on Amazon. There is no reason to do that. This isn't a 60 to 80 watt ranges depending on how many leds are being used at one time. Color tunable RGB panel that's very small runs off the RGB. Oh, nice. Yeah. I was going to ask if it was bicolor and I was afraid that I would sound out of touch. So I'm glad you went with your RGB. It is. And it's got color gel presets and a bunch of other cool stuff. You can get it hot right cameras. I know that I think there's about 20 left. I think we've blown through about half of them this week. But yeah, but it's an inexpensive light. And I see a lot of people get these really junky video lights and use them for all kinds of things that are not very bright and they don't have a lot of functions. This is fulfilling on that promise and you might think $350, I could get almost a PlayStation with that kind of money. But no, you can't. You can't they're like 500 bucks or something these days. And I was about to say, but also I don't know. I have a choice between lighting and interview or playing Red Dead Redemption. I don't know at some point. You're so uncool that not a gamer. Anyway, I'm just saying that for less than the price of a PlayStation. You can buy a really high quality light that.

"It'll save your assets. That's a good that's a good idea. We should give it to you. That one's free. That's free. Enjoy. All right, Ben, who's on the show today. This is an awesome awesome interview. I'm very excited to present it to people. Gentlemen named Dan Addis, who I knew as the director of Stephen King silver bullet in the 1980s. But who, as it turns out, has gone on to direct God knows hundreds of hours of some of the best television on television and has been doing it since the 80s, really. And he's an amazingly interesting person to talk to. He knows so much about his craft about directing. He brings so much to it, and I'm really blown away because it kind of answers the question. You know, whenever we have someone on here who is a DP of a TV series, be it Ozark, be it the strain, be it whatever. My first question is always like, so when you bring in a guest director, like, how do you get those motherfuckers in line? And it was really interesting to hear it from Dan's point of view because he really puts a lot of thought into every episode he directs, whether he's a guest director on a show or there are shows like homeland where he directed tons and tons of episodes. And his kind of thinking, I think, is the kind of thing that we should all be striving for when we're making film project, whether you're a DP or a director and as we're always talking about, we're here to drill down and ask the questions about art craft and philosophy. And this guy was all three of those. He was brilliant. And I should say he has written a book called directing great television, which I didn't read it so much as I devoured it. It was really, it was a great read, very interesting, very telling. And we're going to be giving away an autographed copy of directing great television to some lucky listener and we will have information on our Instagram..

"So so basically. Am i right that with ultrasound. entities and muscle imma cheese. You don't have a big training day to like. You would have for many things that you can find from incident like for example translates since you can find thousands of millions of folks that are into language season even just used them and now you need to provide the day's face exactly right so if you happen to work for google or facebook or amazon then you have access to huge volumes of data and in the case of something like facebook. It's very often actually labeled data because people upload their own photos and then they highlight regions in the photo and say who is in this picture. what you doing there is helping facebook to train facial recognition algorithms so. That's good for them. Because it happens at scale. They have billions of uses. But as you say for ultrasound we don't have open data sense because usually allowed to share medical data for you and and it's not the kind of task that really tempts people to to want to do the labeling because it's it's slow and tedious so that is the challenge and they're all ways around that with newer message. We can work with less data but it is the biggest obstacle so yeah and and about facebook. You said that we are kind of helping them. If if i don't like facebook sued. Ib labeling wrong persons like a dog to pass and so does at least throw fully the facebooks legally allowed to comment on the. It's an interesting suggestion. Yes of course. Most people probably are okay with that. Do to be honest. Facebook been in plenty of trouble before about how they use data and how they pass it onto other companies. Most people don't actually care. It's only once crimes have been committed that then they'll come back and say actually i'm not okay with addis data recognition. Rules regulation rules. Yeah and i think it's wonderful like google photos. It will classify your peak sister with one has like the lake which thursday we don't have bike and so on so after it works you can actually find your pizza's you're you're looking for so those algorithms are actually not very.

"A new neural pathway. A new pattern of response unless you pause. Does that make sense. What that means is that. Sometimes you won't be able to because you'll be caught in a back forth and you'll just lose it and then you just forgive yourself and it's okay you can always pause we. Just don't have that control but sometimes we do tell you a few stories to kind of give you examples but the first step is that you pause and you make that you turn knowing that no matter how much the other person seems like the trigger.

He's an incredibly special talent. This just in burma say this. Just end i go with patrick. Mahomes number one overall and everybody can argue. That's what the list like. This is four.

I i consider the word solid and unsatisfactory adjective for excellent. But not but not as saying. This is solid list. You know this. But i tell you when when people say to me. Hey rich that was solid now when you do someone a solid and is much better than hey man that was solid solid to me is not. It's not an adjective. It is not a word for excellent.

That may be the only place that i like some up but other than that i think you pretty much you hit in like lord. You put atoms above kelsey. I probably that's a tough one that when you get those two. I think i might have to go the volunteer over travis but by by the slightest margin would you put. Would you put rogers and mahomes over. Brady i would okay. Would you put Aaron donald above aaron rodgers. I believe that is okay Would you who was your number one. Is it mahomes. I think you have to have mahomes number one on this list. So yeah i think he did a great job with it. See that's solid. But i think you did a great job with it is much. Yeah now more complimentary salad. Listen i told you. I said using solid as a real compliment not the way we generally what you said. I appreciate that sort of caveat. I just want to let you know that.

A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia

"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

Biting the hands that would feed: Ethiopia

"Humanitarian crisis is unfolding in ethiopia's northern region of tigray. The turmoil began in november when civil war broke out between the federal government and regional forces led by the tigray people's liberation front or teepee aleph within weeks troops had entered the regional capital of mckelway and prime minister abe committed declared victory but the fighting continued. Thousands have died in the conflict and more than two million civilians have been driven from their homes. Some sixty thousand fled to neighboring sudan now. The threat of starvation looms most of the regions. Roughly six million people have been without adequate food water or medicine. For weeks. ethiopia's tigray region is facing an alarming -tarian crisis. Basically because aid workers are not able to get essential supplies to those who are affected by the war which is essentially the entire population of the region. The vast majority. Tom gardner is abba correspondent a top regional official and that's one appointed by abby himself. He told aid workers a private meeting on january. The eighth that hundreds of thousands might starve. Meanwhile a western diplomat told me we could have a million dead there in a couple of months if humanitarian access is in opened up significantly urgently. And what is daily life like in tigray right now outside of michaela the regional capital where things are marginally better banks closed. Markets have stop shops shuttered. Fuel is run out. That's been the case. Since the war began really in early november. Last year i met one man who fled from tigray to addis ababa and he said to me even if you have the money you don't have a bank if you have grain you don't have a mill if you have mill you don't have power and that seems to be pretty representative from the accounts. We're hearing on top of that. Hospitals are running. mt hospital. staff have not been paid since october according to medicine some volunteer doctors without borders. You've had more access than most every hospital. They've been into they found entirely looted. All of this is just the knock on effects of the conflict and tigray which it sounds is still going on right so the war began in the start of november. It was the culmination of long standing. Tensions between the which ran the region and for thirty years was the dominant force in the federal government. In addis ababa the capital as well until two thousand and one thousand nine when they were pushed out following mass protests and replaced by abby half mad prime minister the abbey and the pilaf simmered for two years before rupturing eventually towards the end of last year. More than two months later. The left appears to be in. Disarray is being ousted from the regional capital and it's waging something akin to an insurgency in the countryside now it's troops control of the countryside particularly in the center of the region. It doesn't control major towns its leaders including the ousted. President have been essentially a well. We haven't heard from them for over a month. And some of the founding members of the been captured or shot dead so the fighting continues especially in central tigray but the prime minister. I be met. He believes it's only a matter of time now before the rest of what he calls. The gender are captured or killed but this whole conflict was the result of the federal government looking to take control of restive region. Now they have arrested region where the humanitarian crisis. What are they doing about. That does with dispute these accounts all the humanitarian crisis earlier this week. A spokesman for the federal disaster management agency said in an interview that there is no starvation in ethiopia alec baldwin. Dr a couple of days ago the federal ministry of peace claimed it was distributing a to almost two million citizens northern ethiopia. And the minister of peace told me that even reaching central tigray which is live under the control of forces so that seems implausible. I mean our forces regularly attack military convoys so it's impossible for the government to deliver supplies safely and then on the other hand emergency supplies being delivered by the un and international ngos. They can't get into these areas either because they're not allowed by the army which controls access an agreement that the un signed last month with the federal government which was supposed to allow them and allow aid groups to travel freely throughout the region. That's basically not been honored for. Un staff was shorter and detained last month. For entering areas which senior government official later said they were not supposed to go and an points to the key question. Here which is is the government being deliberately obstructive and a lot of people in the diplomatic and humanitarian community. Recommended is one u. n. Diplomat told me that the lack of humanitarian access is part and parcel of the war campaign.

Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR

"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.

Ethiopian military says it killed 15 Tigray rebels

"Now, and the tension between the government in Addis Ababa and the northern province of Tigre is continuing. You'll recall that armed conflict in early November broke out between the Ethiopian army. And the T p L F T T Dry People's Liberation Front government declared victory within a month. Now, the army has announced the killing and arrest of more civilian and military leaders off the TPLF. That speak to Martin clout. Now who formerly off this parish and is an expert on the Horn of Africa. Martin, What can you tell us about this announcement late last night by the Ethiopian government? Does it sound plausible? In terms of what they're saying? What are they? What are they telling us? They've done Well, yes, it does. I mean, it's it's clear that they have made a number of arrests and people are being killed. I mean, including some really quite significant figures like a very well do who was a former president of Tigre and the chairman of the Tigre People's Liberation Front. One thing one has to remember is that this is now a guerilla war Thebes. Gran's withdrew when McCallie fell. That's the capital of the region of Tigre. They withdrew to the mountains. There's now heavy fighting going on across the region with Eritrean forces from the north on damn horror militia. Backing the Ethiopian forces from the south and from the east on this is now a full scale war that is going on, which is frankly bogging down. Everybody involved. So when you when you talk about the war continuing, of course, the rhetoric coming out of Addis is that they have resolved this. Well, I don't think we have to take that terribly seriously. I mean, to be honest with you that the thing you need to ask yourself is why is it that all independent journalists apart from one Belgian, who managed to get in have been banned from the area. There aren't even embedded Ethiopian journalists up on the front. Onboard. The situation sounds frankly, pretty dreadful. What is what more given that the beginning of the conflict? We We weren't really able to get through too many people into dry where there there have been all sorts of reports of destruction of cultural artifacts. And so on. What? What more do we know about that? Well, I've just been able to stand up for what happened at the church off Mariam in in Axle, which is one of the holy sites off. Ethiopia. It's the site at which the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be kept, which could may only be seen by a monk. A guardian monk on dawn, the 15th of December What happened was there was a confrontation. Troops entered the compound, which they're not meant to do. There was a confrontation with the people inside. They were forced outside into the square and up to 750. People were shot by the horror and the Ethiopian troops outside on. That is not the only one. There's also now There's a report, which has been actually confirmed by the Ethiopians themselves that the oldest mosque in Africa, then Ajusshi mosque, which was built by the companions off the Prophet Mohammed in the fourth century, was also shelled. Theise. You can say this was done because the two grands built trenches in the area. But these these are really serious damage to the cultural artifact. And on top of that you have a number off factories, which were built in in a number of towns, which have been either trashed or demolished. And many of them are not being looted and that their contents taken to Eritrea.

Apple unveils first Mac computers powered by its own M1 chip

"Today. we bring you. The inclusion of a three part interview with addis custodian of qualcomm be discussing the company's approach to security devices powered by the processors and where arm-powered laptops are headed one of the elements tent poles. That is just processor is the security element. And there's there's extra some security for photos or some sort of verification. He talked about that. Yeah so You know security has always been a one of the functions that we concentrated on a lot and we have a secure processor that it's embedded in our solutions and we have certified that processor as well and so what we try to do not. Just concentrate on on the photo side. What also concentrate on security as any tax or militias software may be embedded into our downloaded into the phone We have to make sure that security wise consumers don't get compromised or the software that goes along with it with a platform like android is always staying safe from a photo perspective Making sure that Anything that you want to tag secure That cannot be accessed by anyone. Else is is the mainstay. Basically overal is not just concentrating on photos is really system security and Sections of your software and sections of your system that cannot be accessed by anyone else besides the user and if the it locks it out in such a way where you would have to physically destroy the phone and then it would be no good. So that's that's our goal and we constantly work with different software vendors and vendors to make sure that our security capabilities are in line with what they want. What will last eight is a platform for phones but of samples of making a lot of noise about it's a m one powered. Max is also running off of an arm architecture. Just like the qualcomm chips Apples made a huge deal of it and the reviews for the first run of these laptops. He's max have been really positive in terms of battery life performance.

Ethiopia's conflict spills over border as thousands flee

"This week, he sent federal troops into a province of his own country. Hundreds are reported dead in the northern region of Tigre and refugees air spilling over the border into Sudan. So what explains the shift from peace to conflict? Michelle Gavin is a former ambassador and senior fellow for African studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Ambassador Gavin We're talking about the Ethiopian province of Tigre, where the violence is happening. It's squeezed into the northwest corner of Ethiopia. Figure it straddles the border of Eritrea to its north. What is so important about Tigre relative to the rest of Ethiopia? Well for many years, the Tigre and People's Liberation Front that sort of dominant political and military entity in Tigre was really first among equals in the ruling coalition for all of Ethiopia so to Graham's played an incredibly prominent role in Ethiopian governance, politics, security But with the rise of the new Prime Minister Ahmed There's been a bit of a re balancing in Ethiopia. And this is kind of opened up contest station from ethnicities across this incredibly diverse country. And there has been kind of widespread feeling that for too long, a small minority from Tigre had too much control of the federal government. So there's political tension between Tigre and Addis Ababa. Are there also historical grievances between two grand central government that we need to mention? I mean, is there a back story here? Tigre is now fighting at us. There's a lot of back story Ethiopian and certainly to Gran's were and incredibly, they weren't just dominant, politically and in the security services for many years, certainly under the leadership of Prime minister malice, But they also suffered most in the long and very costly in blood and treasure war with your tria. So there is there's also you know, a sense of probably grievance in that sense. Abby's come to power they feel targeted by new personnel choices by new policy choices. What maybe others in Ethiopia see as a re balancing the Tigre ins can often feel like persecution despite the tremendous sacrifices that they have made for the country. There are reports from Tigre oven. Ethiopian air campaign heavy bombardment at times. I mean, what's at stake here as far as you can tell ambassador Is it a possible civil war between two grands and Ethiopian troops? There is Tigre saying. We've had enough. We want independence. How should we interpret what's going on? We should absolutely be worried about a civil war, which I don't think would necessarily be contained just Teo, the Tigre region, giving all of the other tensions and actors. So what's at stake? You know the wellbeing of over 110 million Ethiopians. Regional stability. Conflict in Ethiopia has a very high chance of drawing in Eritrea. Sudan, tipping the balance of Sudan zone very fragile transition. Ethiopia's incredibly important actor in trying to bring stability to Somalia to South Sudan distracted and weekend. Ethiopia is really quite devastating, Tio this entire horn region which is strategically really significant, and there are a lot of actors external to Africa. In the Gulf, the Chinese and from the West, all of whom care deeply about stability in this region, so the prospect of drawing others in of proxy conflict it's really a powder keg, and the consequence will not be confined solely to what's happening inside Ethiopia's borders. Michelle Gavin, senior fellow for Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. She also served as ambassador to Botswana from 2011 to 14. Ambassador Gavin Thank you very much. Thank you.

Ethiopia to replace Tigray region leadership as forces clash

"Let's move to Ethiopia, which is currently technically in a state of civil war. On Thursday, the Ethiopian military and officials in the northern Tigre region accused each other of instigating a civil conflict that has seen fighting between government soldiers and troops loyal to the regional administration. In a televised address early on Wednesday, Ethiopia's prime minister Abbiamo accused the local government of attacking federal troops, and he said the region's ruling party, the Tigre, People's Liberation Front, or TPLF, were traitors. We're going to the National Defense Force that has been in the bunkers for the past 20, plus years defending its people and the country by paying heavy sacrifices with its blood and flesh has been attacked this evening in Michael. And many other places by traders and the force they organized. The army has been attacked from behind by its own citizens, and many have been martyred, wounded and properties destroyed. This force of destruction has been engaged in many counterproductive activities for the past many months. The regional president of Tigre. Debra Montgomery kill, has described the actions of the military as an invasion were joined on the line out from Addis Ababa by William Davison. He's a senior analyst on Ethiopia for the International Crisis Group. Thank you for joining us. What's the latest that you're hearing how many casualties in the fighting? Well, actually, the number of casualties of fatalities is one of the things that is not clear. There is still a communications blackout across Tigre. But there are certainly casualties being reported from the hospital visits and outside the thing. Essentially, we have an active conflict, a CZ you've clearly described in the introduction. The fighting has been concentrated in West too great so far has bean incursions by the federal military from West agree that Paul is the horror region on horror regions. Forces have also been involved. To some extent. I think it's worth noting that degrades main supply route would be through West a great and into Eastern sedan reported on so that perhaps explains the focus of that fighting, and we've also seen small search skirmishes around medically. To grace capital and in the last day or so, that is involved air strikes by the federal military to try and take out military installations around metal. And that really indicates a major problem here, which is that part of the federal military appeared to be siding with a great vision. Can you explain a little bit of background to this? Why has this situation been allowed to reach to this state of hostility? Well, I mean offices that there's a very long political background to great region has a long history of autonomy to the central government, as well as being involved in central politics. More recently, TPLF was the preeminent party, the ruling coalition that lasted essentially until 2018 when Communist at the Army came to power. No off. He took power on the tplf. They lost a lot off their federal positions and power. And there were all sorts of accusations traded back and forth allegations of destabilization as we've heard what's on the TPL aside. They said that they were unfairly targeted prosecutions by the federal government and also discrimination and marginalization More general Then there was the creation of a national ruling party by prime minister Beyond the TPLF objected to that, Andi they sat it out, became formerly part of the opposition this year. This is evolved into an electoral dispute at the constitutional disputes. The federal government tried to extend all government terms when it delayed elections due to covered 19 Tigre opposed us. They run their own poll and that lets the federal government describing Tigre is government is unlawful and takeaways Government government, saying the federal government had overstayed its constitutional mandate. That is the buildup to the conflict We have now and William, you're seeing evidence now that the military in Tigre is siding with the Local government. Is that right? Yes, That's right. Like I say, information blackout. I can't be sure of exactly what's occurring on the ground. But yesterday, the federal government says that the military the air force to try to take out missile launches on missiles. Now that is Ethiopian military hardware. So that suggests either elements of what is called the Northern Command a very powerful units of Egypt's military that has been fighting the war on manning the border with Eritrea that suggested either elements Since there have defected or otherwise under the control of the secret leadership. Otherwise, the air Force would not be bombing those installations. This is a major piece of the puzzle in terms of the balance of power here, and it suggests that we could be entering a protracted conflict that is a conflict that is likely to escalate, it could destabilize Ethiopia and its armed forces it could bring in Eritrea. And it could generally destabilize the entire region. This is why dialogue and some form of talks is absolutely in Paris, and

Dr. Andrew Weil - Spontaneous Happiness

"Doctor Wyle. Welcome back to the show. Thanks good to be here again while we got a lot to get into really enjoyed our first conversation and we got into a lot of different stuff and I wanNA take time and get into some new subjects get a bit deeper into some of the stuff we covered last time but you're such a wealth of knowledge and have so many different areas of expertise would I decided to do was pick one of your many books which I pick spontaneous happiness and Kinda use that as an underlying. Theme for our chat today. Okay. So a lot we can get into within that. But first of all, let's talk about your post you put up on instagram yesterday you you shared a short video of yourself eating the prince, which is a mushroom I hadn't heard of this one before. So tell me about in how long have you been consuming it well, it's one of my favorite mushrooms. It's not a common one I found that various parts of the country the property where I live at the moment in British Columbia they come up. At this time of year and sometimes in the fall, it's a big. Very Meaty, beautiful mushroom us, fairly easy to identify. It's related to the button mushroom. That's in that same family. It has a very strong fragrance of almond extract that persists when you cook the mushroom. So it's just delightful and I was so happy to find these and they tend to get attacked by insect larvae very early on. So it's hard to find a specimens that are intact and the ones that I found your so far have been completely pristine. So sliced them up, sauteed them in olive oil little salt and pepper, and they're great knifes some more coming up that I'm going to. Pick today Nice. So you're foraging those rate on your property. Yeah. Yeah. Just a few steps away from my house. Very cool. Any other mushrooms or any other forging going on this time? Of Year the Mane Mushroom time here is the fall of particularly october-november. This been an unusual season here with a lot of a lot of rain cooler temperatures. So we also had Shanta rails fruiting, which normally don't do that at this time of year. So I had a meal of those as well. Nice, and with the whole pandemic going on I know normally spend the summers see where you're at now and the. Winters down in Tucson was a hard for you to get up north in get to your your summer home while fortunately I married a Canadian last year. So I was able to get in as an immediate family member. The border is still closed. Congrats I didn't know you'd gotten married congrats to that. Yes. Thanks. So what about the gardens? How're the gardens doing? They're fantastic it's unusual weather. There is a very hot early spring here, and then it's been cool and rainy but things are doing really well I've been harvesting lot of lettuce herbs potatoes tomatoes aren't right yet corn is tasked. Laying beginning years I have a lot of bees I get a great deal of my food from the garden. Let's talk about besides the food and this ties into the whole topic a happiness that we're going to really dig into talk about on a mental and spiritual level. What do you get from being in the garden while first of all to connection with nature and when I was looking into the reasons for the epidemic of depression that we have in North America, you know one of the factors in Addis disconnection from nature I mean there are many other factors, but that's certainly one of them. Even been described as nature deficit disorder I. Think any way you can connect with nature spending time outdoors. If you're stuck indoors even being around houseplants or companion animals is helpful but I, think that's something we really need for mental emotional and spiritual well-being right and talk about how you go about incorporating houseplants in tier environment in the home and specifically what that does. and My home in Tucson, my home is really filled with house plants here in BC. Since I'm not here, all year, I don't have plans inside but I have a you know an incredible landscape and forest here and and Garden Bing around plants makes me happy and I'm very tuned into their well being you know people talk about having green thumbs or Brown thumbs I think it's mostly a matter of paying attention that if you pay attention plants, let you know what they need or what they're not getting. Have you always been a green thumb or something that took you a lot of years to get to. Now it's from early childhood and something I got from my mother that she got from her mother even though I grew up in a row. House in Philadelphia had very little land around it my mother and I would garden we plant sayings and Plant Bulbs and that really awakened my interest in the plant world, and ultimately that led me to be to study botany as an undergraduate.

"My guest today is David Veto Curve CEO and president of FANDOM. Ease Sports David. Thanks for joining the show and thanks for that help with pronunciation. No problems thank his. Bane of my life but elegant. Thank you. Phantom ease. Sports is entertainment company that aggregate curates and produces unique fan focus content. The company's primary product is the fan sports APP which focuses on monetize Phantom via the blaze blockchain this week. Fandom in East sports network side a letter of intent, and we're excited about potential collaborations in the future starting with this podcast. So. David you're the new CEO. Last year. We had Henry home. The previous CEO Phantom on the podcast. What are your goals for the organization going forward? Very simple we're looking to. Grow and engage with the sports community the partnership that you just announced with sports is really going to be one of the building blocks of that goal What we want to do is build out community where people can come follow their favorite games. Their favorite teams interact with what may be going on in those sports. Events live in real time. And engage with each other in A. Unique Way that is. User friendly and engaging, so you know there's two pillars to the platform. Both of them are built on data, so we have data coming in from in game data, win-lose draws matches certain spells happening headshots towers, going down on the other side of that we have content coming in from sports network amongst other organizations that we're working with of. For stories around the Games and behind the Games what our community managers than do as sort through that data create predictions that people can. Predict and engage in real time so as you're watching in event on. Your favorite platform, you know as long as we have data to it. You can play along with that and interact with that game as on, so everyone's used to. have two screens home, always watching TV and I seem to be scrolling through something on my phone. So this is a way to really close that loop and increase engagement have. Absolutely we're definitely in the age of two screen viewing twitch capitalized on that very early on with the twitch chat and realize the people wanting to talk about what they're watching while they play it now. We're actually at the age of probably three screen view I know there's plenty of times when I'm playing her stone. My laptop browsing twitter while watch TV show, which is probably not good for my long term, health but I do anyway. You know. I have a little bit of mild. Add myself fourteen tabs open three screens. I'm looking at a laptop now about another. Desktop screened decided in TV running. Right behind it in. You know having a focused conversation with us. This is just I. think rewiring our brains, but the amount of information that you can interact with today's just fantastic. Nobody. Be Thought you could do this and. You know even when I speak to some of our investors. In People Watch. People play video games gets more entertaining than anything. I see on all these three other screens in front of me, so why not? It's A. Fun Safe Place to work right here at home and enjoying. Good content. It's not hurting anyone, so I'm all for it. I'm all for it to. It's content and again it. It highlights that disconnect towards what people enjoy watching you the second degree Buick. People love to watch you play video games because they're not entirely watching the play video games. They're also on their phones. They're also in twitch chat. Unlike a intense netflix's drama, for example where your need to be focused on it, entirely or movie, or even a sporting event where you need to really be focused in people playing video games, you'll play a battle. Royale is very second screen viewing heavy, which just shows how people are consuming content these days. There's. No thank God. I don't have to phones like I said. There's no real end to what you can do, and I think that's what's really unique about what we're trying to do here. Vandam is that. Whether you're watching imbedded stream in the APP, or you're watching. That's stream from another platform because the data comes in, you're really engaging with. On one type of content on two different screens as opposed to watch in two different screens, two types of content on it, so it really. A completes the ecosystem and we can offer benefits to the companies that we partner with. For example from Addis showing on you know a streaming platform can have that admiral in in the hand held device or vice

Behind the scenes at the humanitarian air hub dispatching COVID-19 aid to African nations

"Face mosques a million of them just some of the precious cargo being dispatched to all corners of Africa by the UN as the continent braces for the spread of cove in nineteen managing. This huge task is Amanda Dowdy Senior Director of Operations for the World Food Program will WFP in online interview with you. An uses Daniel Johnson Jordanian national. Mr Dodie takes us behind the scenes at the agency's humanitarian hub in the European capital. Addis Ababa where a U N Wide Supply Chain. Operation is now in full swing. The flights game some came from China on some came from Dubai. It was a combined shipment of Jack Ma Foundation and who own supplies? They arrived in Addis on Tuesday and from there we are moving only consignments to almost fifty countries across Africa so far we have moved up to thirty countries and every day we are completing that consignment right so on the ground then from Addis Ababa. You've reached around thirty countries as you say what's the the final figure Africa now if we African country which ones have called for help. And how is the decision taken about which ones are helped look going to all the African countries in accordance with ovulation in accordance with needs? But the most in need are where the number of cases are flaring up. We have cases in west Africa in Senegal as well as in southern Africa and flights. Today just give me a picture of actually what's happening on the ground in Addis at the humanitarian hub. Everything is working. We allocate the basically parcel or or kit the cargo in accordance to fly throughout that we have so the lanes will depart at this angle to multiple countries. Come back and pick up again. Another would go to multiple vendors. Of course we're using several airplanes in order to reach a maximum. I think today the plan is for thirty countries to receive the locations today and what particular protocols are in place to prevent caveat nineteen transmission. We follow all the procedures in terms of the guidelines of w the national health guidelines. That are in place the social distancing but we also are in a way in even when we transfer Scott Every manager in place including spraying the planes in short that there is no cross contamination even from parcells coming so we follow according to a yet according to Keio we are abiding by these owes to the letter in terms of what happened today when it reaches the country in question. How is the aid distributed? And how you show that. It's getting to where it needs to go. It's the handed over to the Ministry of of the Spectrum Authority of the member states. It's not exactly going to UN agencies or NGOs this is going to member states and the government authorities W in coordination with the local government authorities ensures that all the aid or assistance in terms of medical supplies goes to work. It is neat. Could you say this is an historic sort of arrangement to show solidarity in terms of keeping supply chains going because the secretary general has expressed a lot of concern about global supply chains when code actually hits because yes African countries that have been affected already? But it's really nothing compared with what is going to happen. This was the first flight from Addis. Ababa it was the first test for the international hub as transshipment on to the rest of Africa but also in terms of passenger because as part of our response to call with is a neighboring humanitarian and the health responding to reach the countries. And we are going to be using episode for establishing passenger service again to East Africa would be establishing multiple bessinger services. Because as you know commercial air traffic is moralists suspended so we will be establishing these passenger services to ensure that responders humanitarian workers and all the personnel needed to mitigate a fight. This virus can arrive in countries where they need to and they can also leave where they need to go so we are enabling the humanitarian and responds. To be able to mitigate against this virus. This is Africa. Were talking about. So how is the World Food Program helping places like Yemen? Syria Wall Art of the hub. Will also be providing. It's not only for Africa. It we will be using part of the others as well or Yemen for example but this is not the only in Africa we would have one enact ca one in this above and one in South Africa we have a hop ensue bank in Malaysia for Asia and we have a hump in Dubai for the Middle East. And we have a hub in Panama for Latin American for Central America. So these are all going to be coming online as we speak and they would serve as the respective regions both in terms of cargo as well as in terms of personnel the eventual aim is to help ninety five countries in total all. Actually probably it's GONNA reach almost Henry Than Twenty affected countries so we have the capacity to scale up as needed of course if the funding is provided of course and. How much funding do you need? You're asking what three hundred fifty million dollars. How much do you have so far? We entered sixty was initial request. Now we are revising these figures depending on the data that we are getting supplies. As the sourcing and manufacturing increases we will be increasing our air assets in order to make sure that the supplies getting time to the affected countries enter the countries that needs.

Fighting Fires with Lt. Sarinya Srisakul, FDNY'S First Asian Woman Firefighter

"We're GONNA introduce guest richest guest. You WanNa take it away. Sure thanks this. We have another righteous guest up. She is the first ever Asian American female firefighter for the New York City. Fire departments and now the first Asian women lieutenant in the near New York City Fire Department. Please welcome Serena's Russa cool so perhaps we usually start off with asking our guests like describe what you do right because sometimes stylised or they're in entrepreneur and you have a title where it's like a firefighter. It's pretty planetary on the surface. But I don't think most people know like what really means. Fighter could you kind of simply due in Lieutenant House? Oh yeah so. I'll talk a little bit about finger. Firefighters I and Lieutenant so as a firefighter besides qualifiers you also do a medical calls for accidents stuck elevators electrical water utility emergencies Water main breaks Anything that doesn't neatly fit in the category of like what? Police officer does usually. It's the Fire Department. See something say something. We show up to that Any weird random rescues anyway that that's the fire department and sounds like is like better better to be safe than sorry kind of situations where you show up fully geared up with the big as like trump and and it's like a cigarette. Yeah our code for when they're smoking weed is it. Smells like incense. It smells like wink. Wink City colitis incense situation. So before you get into the lieutenant part what you were saying you do you guys cover pretty much everything that the police department wouldn't cover a lot with them to you. Yeah so they show up Even medical calls US ambulances and them show up so you obviously had your tenure in that space. So y'all can you describe what that sure basically? I'm just the supervisor so boss the boss there is. You're saying firetruck. There was a fire truck. There's a fire engine. The engine was the difference. Engine has hosing them back. So it's like the shorter rig And so out of fire. Engines stretch the hose line and put the fire out right and it's heavy unwieldy hose so you need a team and they're the ones that need the hydrant right the truck. They have the ladders in the back. So they're the ones that do the ventilation and they do the searches so there have the ladders for the people who are trapped inside. Yeah so and with the I guess. The utility emergencies the engines go to medical emergencies and the trucks go to the stock elevators and water leaks. So that's how we divide up tasks. Yeah so when you look at a rid great Either in an engine or truck. The person who's driving is called a chauffeur and the person next to the show for the officer. And it's either a lieutenant or a captain so in every fire company there's three lieutenants and one captain so I'm a brand new lieutenant so I don't have a permanent station right now. So I'm kind of like a substitute teacher. So whenever any officers sick or on vacation I cover their spot for when they're gone. I'm in North Queens. Which is where I'm assigned So as an officer. I'm a supervisor. Supervise the crew. I'm working with for the day and I do the paperwork for like their how they get paid. People were As a crew during the day. Let's say it's a car accident at the work on that. Cpr Do paperwork on that anything like that. That's the job of the officer to do the paperwork for whatever emergency does and make the decisions Of the best things to do in a fire situation the officers go in with the insight team of the truck and You know you help locate the fire if you're in the truck if you're in the engine then you like hall for whatever needs to happen for the crew to bring in to help fight the fire. Okay got you. I mean thousand foes. Luggage very thorough. There's so many different layers to it. A military base allow paramilitary organization. So we want to rewind a little bit about your beginnings in his career like as Joe mentioned early on the First Asian woman firefighter and ESPN. Y Yes I mean. The FDA wide probably existed for what three four Hundred Years Ono sixty three hundred gifts more than a century. Yes obviously in. Women firefighter in its history. Yes I was the only for a long time. I recently told us a little bit about that. Like what like. What made you decide to do that? I like if you could just kind of explain to us what's What was that like? Yeah it is a good question because it is very different and unique for someone like me to go into this world but I was recruited by my friend who really wanted to be be. A firefighter actually went to school. Down THE STREET FROM HERE. I went to Parsons School of design studying illustration that yeah yeah. It was kind of more Typical route even though. It's atypical or school. But there are other Asian women who are and My Friend Really WanNa be a firefighter was living in San Francisco. Came back to New York When New York was hiring Just want to put a note in New York. Only hires once every four years just crazy? Yeah and you have to be seventeen and a half two older than twenty nine. So he can't be older than twenty years old to take the test so I happen to be twenty one at the time and my friend was like just kind of thought.
