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the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn.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. I know arm based. Pc's have been around for a couple of years now. Thank you introduced i Just computers ago at eight snapdragon summit but kinda hit or miss. And so i just.

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.
Fandom Esports and Esportz Network Eye Future Collaboration
"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. I was a great job and I never really was exposed to any civil service jobs like my mom was a nurse and my dad like worked at a lake at an office. You know For Asian Shipping Company. And so I didn't really was exposed firefighters cops or anything like that and so I got dragged to this orientation that the fire department was having was first time. I met women firefighters and they showed. It was a really corny presentation They showed us like they. Call us. Sizzle reel fire like Microsoft word. Who SO QUIRKY EVENT CALENDARS NO? Hell no hell no it. Was you know honestly it was looking at the other women and seeing how diverse they were me like? They were like short women's hall when they were League. Normal looking. Women are different than them. If they can do it. You know Addis predisposition thought of what that person looked like right as like a normal person would like firefighter. Thousand Two right after nine eleven. It was right after nine. Eleven and everything in the media was not just a man but a white man And how brave they were and this and that and you know. I guess it was more a fear of like. I don't WanNa die like going to work. It was three hundred forty. Three people died that day and it was like this horrible thing that happened. Everyone's like Kinda shellshocked But then you know they addressed it at Orientation. They said like the trainings really good. You get to help people I went to art school after that. I was in communion organizing worked in the nonprofit world for awhile and you know at the end of the day just wanted to help people The nonprofit world doesn't pay very much and I saw how much firefighters were making union job all the retirement. You Know My pension it's twenty years and retire and I'll say oh I can retire my forties. This is great. You know I was really like bought into a and being the first Asian woman I knew at the time I would have been the first one so that really was appealing to me to to break that barrier so I just like went

It's seven thirty seven max planes after this terrible tragedy in Ethiopia where you had over over one hundred and fifty one hundred fifty seven people killed shortly after it took off from Addis in Ethiopia. And now people are really worried that these this one type of plane, the seven thirty seven max. May have a a lethal flaw in the electron IX in the design of of this very advanced aircraft in some way, which is why they're grabbing these know people gave they gave President Trump a very hard time for what he wrote on on Twitter about this here. I'll give you give you exactly the tweet. He said, this is a very very Trump tweet. And he said that he thinks essentially that these planes are getting too advanced into and too complicated. Actually for some reason, I'm not able to. Not able to find this one right now. Here we go airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly pilots are no longer needed. But rather computer scientists from MIT I see it all the time in many products, always seeking to go one unnecessary step further when often old and simpler is far better. Split-second decisions are needed and a complexity creates danger all this for great costs yet very little gain. I don't know about you. But I don't want our Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane. So people gave him a really hard time on this one. You know, they really gave the Trumpster some rough stuff over this. But I will say that I read years ago. A piece I think it might have been in business insider. And it was looking at why this. Yeah. That's right Air France here ago, Air, France, four four seven and this was from the early hours of June first two thousand nine when Air France flight four four seven from Rio to Paris went missing. And it just crashed and got killed two hundred and twenty eight people on board. And there were there was crew error here. So so the pilot did make a mistake. But when they looked at the. They looked at the error and how it caused the air. It's because of the side stick the control of the stick rather used in these Airbus cockpits, and it's a very small lever. And it doesn't feel like something that you when you pull down on it to go it just feels like it's too small to be controlling the plane. It doesn't give you the real feel of this plane and. Here.
